thefilmarchive.org The 1996 State of the Union address was given by President Bill Clinton to a joint session of the 104th United States Congress on January 23, 1996. The speech was the last State of the Union address of President Clinton’s first term. This speech occurred shortly after the federal government shutdown of 1995 and 1996 which had resulted from disagreements on the 1996 United States federal budget. President Clinton discussed the economy and declared that “the era of big government is over,” and continued, “but we cannot go back to the time when our citizens were left to fend for themselves. We must go forward as one America, one nation working together, to meet the challenges we face together. Self-reliance and teamwork are not opposing virtues — we must have both.” The president discussed welfare reform, the V-chip, education, community policing, crime and the environment. The president also discussed foreign relations and the federal budget. The Republican Party response was delivered by Senator Bob Dole of Kansas. He stated that “[President Clinton] is the chief obstacle to a balanced budget and the balanced budget amendment…. While the President’s words speak of change, his deeds are a contradiction. President Clinton claims to embrace the future while clinging to the policies of the past.” Donna Shalala, the Secretary of Health and Human Services, served as the designated survivor. en.wikipedia.org

The Great Gildersleeve (1941–1957), initially written by Leonard Lewis Levinson, was one of broadcast history’s earliest spin-off programs. Built around Throckmorton Philharmonic Gildersleeve, a character who had been a staple on the classic radio situation comedy Fibber McGee and Molly, first introduced on Oct. 3, 1939, ep. #216. The Great Gildersleeve enjoyed its greatest success in the 1940s. Actor Harold Peary played the character during its transition from the parent show into the spin-off and later in a quartet of feature films released at the height of the show’s popularity. On Fibber McGee and Molly, Peary’s Gildersleeve was a pompous windbag who became a consistent McGee nemesis. “You’re a haa-aa-aa-aard man, McGee!” became a Gildersleeve catchphrase. The character was given several conflicting first names on Fibber McGee and Molly, and on one episode his middle name was revealed as Philharmonic. Gildy admits as much at the end of “Gildersleeve’s Diary” on the Fibber McGee and Molly series (Oct. 22, 1940). He soon became so popular that Kraft Foods—looking primarily to promote its Parkay margarine spread — sponsored a new series with Peary’s Gildersleeve as the central, slightly softened and slightly befuddled focus of a lively new family. Premiering on August 31, 1941, The Great Gildersleeve moved the title character from the McGees’ Wistful Vista to Summerfield, where Gildersleeve now oversaw his late brother-in-law’s estate and took on the rearing of his …

Question by Deepee: Can a person be president / managing partner of multiple companies?
I’m curious, I’ve recently been offered an internship position by one of my fraternity alumni. Hes managing partner of a small investment partnership/business consulting firm. I am a little cautious though because the whole thing almost seems too good to be true. I was offered the job with little interviewing. He keeps taking me out to things like suites at sporting events and expensive restaurants. I attended a client meeting meeting with him as well. I’ve never been to the office though, we always meet at his house or over the phone.
When I google his name, I noticed he showed up as President and managing partner of two other firms. They list him as “previously working” at the firm i’m offered the job at. I’ve never heard him mention either of these companies before, and theyre not listed on his linkedin page. Would it be common for an investment partner/venture capitalist/consultant to be president or involved in multiple firms? Or have you heard of scam companies listing executives who don’t really work for them to seem more legitimate? His list of experience seems pretty reputable.
I am not sure of what kind of scam he’d be trying to lure me into if that were the case. I’m a college student with no credit, and no money…which i’m pretty sure hes aware of. He has a huge house, and obviously lots of money, so maybe hes just being a nice guy. I’m just being careful not to get into anything i’m going to regret
Answer by Jane S
yep some people work on Boards and can be executives of two companies such as Google and Apple, as long as the companies dont compete too much say Wall Mart and Toyota that could work
but being on the Board of Toyata and Suzuki that would not

thefilmarchive.org April 15, 2012 United States Secret Service personnel, who were in the country to guard the president, brought prostitutes into their hotel before the president arrived. Though Colombian police said that five people were involved, a preliminary investigation by the United States Southern Command suggested that 11 people could have been involved. They also had their top-secret security clearances revoked, had to turn in their agency issued BlackBerrys, were sent back from the summit and placed on administrative leave. The decision to send the agents back to the United States was initiated by the head of the Secret Service’s field office in Miami, Paula Reid, who served as liaison between the Secret Service, local governments and other US agencies involved in preparing for Obama’s visit to Colombia, after she received rumours of an unpaid prostitute knocking on doors and yelling in the hallway of a neighbouring hotel. White House spokesman Jay Carney added that “Sullivan acted quickly in response to this incident, and he’s overseeing an investigation as we speak. This incident needs to be investigated, and it is being investigated. We need to see what the investigation reveals. We’re not going to speculate about the conclusions it might reach.” On 25 April, United States Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano testified in a Senate hearing on the activities of the Homeland Security Department which oversees …

In Iraqi territory that was occupied by the coalition, a peace conference was held where a ceasefire agreement was negotiated and signed by both sides. At the conference, Iraq was approved to fly armed helicopters on their side of the temporary border, ostensibly for government transit due to the damage done to civilian infrastructure. Soon after, these helicopters and much of the Iraqi armed forces were used to fight a Shi’ite uprising in the south. The rebellions were encouraged by an airing of “The Voice of Free Iraq” on 2 February 1991, which was broadcast from a CIA run radio station out of Saudi Arabia. The Arabic service of the Voice of America supported the uprising by stating that the rebellion was large, and that they soon would be liberated from Saddam. In the North, Kurdish leaders took American statements that they would support an uprising to heart, and began fighting, hoping to trigger a coup d’état. However, when no American support came, Iraqi generals remained loyal to Saddam and brutally crushed the Kurdish uprising. Millions of Kurds fled across the mountains to Kurdish areas of Turkey and Iran. These events later resulted in no-fly zones being established in both the North and the South of Iraq. In Kuwait, the Emir was restored, and suspected Iraqi collaborators were repressed. Eventually, over 400000 people were expelled from the country, including a large number of Palestinians, due to PLO support of Saddam Hussein. Yasser Arafat did not apologize …

thefilmarchive.org The 1994 State of the Union address was given by President Bill Clinton to a joint session of the 103rd United States Congress on January 25, 1994. The speech was Clinton’s first official State of the Union address, although he had similarly addressed a joint session of Congress a year prior shortly after taking office. The president discussed the federal budget deficit, taxes, defense spending, crime, foreign affairs, education, the economy, free trade, the role of government, campaign finance reform, welfare reform, and promoting the Clinton health care plan. President Clinton threatened to veto any legislation that did not guarantee every American private health insurance. He proposed for policies to fight crime: a three strikes law for repeat violent offenders; 100000 more police officers on the streets; expand gun control to further prevent criminals from being armed and ban assault weapons; additional support for drug treatment and education. The president began the speech with an acknowledgment of former Speaker Tip O’Neill, who died on January 5, 1994. While discussing additional community policing, the president honored Kevin Jett, a New York City cop attending the address who had been featured in a New York Times story in December 1993. The speech lasted 63 minutes and consisted of 7432 words. It was the longest State of the Union speech since Lyndon B. Johnson’s 1967 State of the Union Address. Republican Representative Henry Hyde criticized …

Which by the way means let’s stop giving tax breaks to businesses that ship jobs and factories overseas let’s reward companies that create jobs and manufacturing right here in the United States of America. Now, Mr. Romney disagrees with this, you know today it was reported in The Washington Post that the companies his firm owned were “pioneers” in the outsourcing of American jobs to places like China and India. Pioneers! Let me tell you Tampa, we don¹t need an outsourcing pioneer in the Oval Office. We need a President who will fight for American jobs and fight for American manufacturing. That¹s what my plan will do. That’s why I’m running for a second term as President of the United States.”
thefilmarchive.org October 6, 1996 The United States presidential election of 1996 was a contest between the Democratic national ticket of President Bill Clinton of Arkansas and Vice President Al Gore of Tennessee and the Republican national ticket of former Senator Bob Dole of Kansas for President and former Housing Secretary Jack Kemp of New York for Vice President. Businessman Ross Perot ran as candidate for the Reform Party with economist Pat Choate as his running mate; he received less media attention and was excluded from the presidential debates and, while still obtaining substantial results for a third-party candidate, by US standards, did not renew his success of the 1992 election. Clinton benefited from an economy which recovered from the early 1990s recession and a relatively stable world stage. On November 5, 1996, President Clinton went on to win re-election with a substantial margin in the popular vote and electoral college. In 1995, the Republican Party was riding high on the gains made in the 1994 congressional elections. In those elections, the Republicans, led by Newt Gingrich, captured the majority of seats in the United States House of Representatives for the first time in 40 years and the majority of seats in the US Senate for the first time in eight years. With the advantage of incumbency, Bill Clinton’s path to renomination by the Democratic Party was uneventful. At the 1996 Democratic National Convention, Clinton and incumbent Vice President Al …
