Angelina Jolie & Hillary Clinton: Meeting Canceled!

Angelina Jolie and her sons Maddox and Pax arrive via private jet on Thursday morning (June 18) in Washington D.C.

The 34-year-old actress was scheduled to join Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at an event for World Refugee Day but Hillary has canceled her day’s events (she needs surgery after falling and breaking her elbow on Wednesday while en route to the White House).

Hillary‘s chief of staff Cheryl Mills said in a statement, “On the way to the White House late this afternoon, Secretary Clinton fell and suffered a right elbow fracture. She was treated at The George Washington University Hospital before heading home.”

Today, Angie will appear also on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360.

    ___________________________________________________

    Trolls are so predictable, first come the lies that no one likes AJ/BP, then they are breaking up, then comes…. he/she looks old, ugly etc,
    could you fools at least come up with some new material?? By the way, I know that in that hollow, dark space where your heart should reside, could you at least for now realize that Angelina was there to bring the focus on human suffering and not to walk down a red carpet. This is not about looks. Read about the life of the woman who was recognized at the event and realize how petty and shallow your post is. God, the mentality of trolls.

  • they met before

    The haters do not have anything ro say except to keep talking about the personal lives of Brad and Angelina. It has nothing to do with the work she is doing. Please focus on the refugees.

  • shocked

    @nelly: I blame skany Brad Pitt because if she had plastic surgery it was probably his idea since he has had numerous procedures done and he’s looking rather shittious too. She has really ruined herself since getting with him and it’s shocking.

  • shocked

    I also Blame Brad for ruining her tattoos with some dumb design that was obviously drawn by him. he has really brought her down A LOT!

  • t.m.delafonda

    Since when has AJ needed any politician to validate her philanthropy? Every time I look at this thread there are naysayers claiming she has some ulterior motive or seeking to negate her efforts on the behalf of the world’s refugees. Why? Because of failed relationships or superficiality? The humanitarian causes she or BP involve themselves with or support should not be tarnished by unresolved personal issues or opinions based on jealousy. If you feel that she is unworthy of recognition, why keep recognizing her? If in your opinion her causes are mere window dressing-don’t shop at her window. But, I don’t believe this to be your issue/s. I believe that you are just as fascinated and amazed as are her fans/supporters and are motivated by jealousy/envy. Your words are meant to be inflammatory because you seek for yourself the same adulation and support you claim she seeks to validate your own unfulfilled existence. Your efforts to undermine and divide are merely distractions from what is a beautiful opportunity for unity of purpose. Instead of sowing divisiveness offer alternative solutions/opportunities for the betterment of society and the world and you will obtain validation because this is not about who is/has been sleeping with whom or looks better naked or wears which outfit better. That is the venue of tabloids and fashion magazines. This is about how to acknowledge and resolve the VERY REAL issues of the disenfranchised. Put your animosity to the side because if you are not trying to be part of the solution-you are simply an unneccessary problem!

  • QQQQ

    World Refugee Day: Angelina Jolie calls for greater understanding of the plight of refugees
    .
    WASHINGTON, DC, United States, June 18 (UNHCR) – At an event marking the launch of activities in the United States for World Refugee Day, UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador Angelina Jolie appeared alongside UN High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres to call on the world to recognize millions of victims of conflict around the world not as a burden but as a potential gift.
    .
    As an American, she said, “I know the strength that diversity has given my country – a country built by what some would now dismiss as asylum-seekers and economic migrants – and I believe we must persuade the world that refugees must not be simply viewed as a burden. They are the survivors. And they can bring those qualities to the service of their communities and the countries that shelter them.
    .
    “The refugees I have met and spent time with have profoundly changed my life,” Jolie added. “Today . . . I want to thank them for letting me into their lives.”
    .
    Jolie was speaking at a World Refugee Day event at the National Geographic Society headquarters in Washington, D.C. hosted by UNHCR and moderated by NBC television anchor Ann Curry. The event included a live feed from the Djabal refugee camp in eastern Chad, where a UNHCR staff member on the ground spoke to the assembled audience. The event comes two days before World Refugee Day, but will be UNHCR’s main WRD activity in the US.
    .
    High Commissioner Guterres spoke of the increasing difficulties and dangers facing the world’s more than 42 million uprooted people as well as those trying to help them. He said the situation was particularly challenging in internal displacement situations which can involve a multiplicity of actors – rebel factions, politically or ethnically linked militias, bandits, government troops and international forces. If people are unable to flee across borders, then humanitarian agencies must try to get help to them inside or near conflict zones.
    .
    “This is a dangerous and changing world,” he said. “One of the worrying trends is people’s inability to cross borders. It’s harder and harder for UNHCR to get access to them. The international community faces difficulties today – it is difficult to balance the sovereignty of states with the sovereignty of the human being. This is a huge challenge for us in UNHCR.”
    .
    With the changing nature of conflict, the “humanitarian space” within which his agency and its partners must work is shrinking, Guterres said. In some situations, humanitarian workers are seen as legitimate targets. Two UNHCR staff members have been killed in the past five months in Pakistan, most recently in the June 9 bombing of the Pearl Continental Hotel in Peshawar.
    .
    “Humanitarians are becoming more and more a target,” he said, and this poses a terrible dilemma – how to balance the urgent needs of innocent civilians with the responsibility to ensure the safety of those trying to help them. “But UNHCR staff never ask me how to leave,” he said. “They always ask me how to stay.”
    .
    US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton was scheduled to speak on Thursday but was forced to cancel after fracturing her elbow in a fall Wednesday on the way to the White House.
    .
    The event in Washington kicked off several days of activities around the world designed to draw attention to the plight of refugees and others uprooted by violence. The theme of this year’s events is “Real People, Real Needs,” underscoring the fact that while the world struggles to cope with the fall-out from the global financial crisis, millions of people in poorer countries are in need of help and attention in order to survive.
    .
    Events on Saturday will include a concert at Washington’s Kennedy Centre by legendary Congolese vocalist and bandleader Samba Mapangala, a football match between refugees in Australia, a musical performance by Kurdish refugees from Iran in northern Iraq and a film festival in Japan. On Saturday, from 9am to 9pm EST in the United States (2pm to 2am GMT) a new web site, http://www.refugeedaylive.org, will feature live streams from Iraq, Pakistan, a refugee camp in Africa and a settlement for the displaced in Colombia.
    .
    At Thursday’s event, UNHCR awarded a refugee from eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rose Mapendo, who had started her own NGO for victims of conflict, with its US Humanitarian of the Year Award.
    .
    Meanwhile, Jolie pointed out that forced displacement is a fact of life. “Whether it be from Darfur, Myanmar or the Swat Valley [in Pakistan]; or some as yet unknown crisis, mass migrations will be a feature of our future. “We must look beyond the simple numbers,” she said, “and look instead at the individual.”

A person that works in one of those countries that she gets her photo taken with the poor said that she flies in for 5 mins get pics taken and leaves w/o speaking to the locals, autographs, nothing but her own photos being taken to look like she cares and then leaves. Just wondering.

  • t.m.delafonda

    @lostchick: Not believable when not only has she written a book about her experiences in these other countries-complete WITH pictures- but it takes more than 5 minutes to just get down the “roads” into and out of these places. AND since when is it necessary to go to a university to have a heart, although, she DID go to school. Also, self-education makes for more intelligence it is considered INTRINSIC KNOWLEDGE-knowledge for the sake of knowing, not because it is required like EXTRINSIC KNOWLEDGE which is education based on external gratification (i.e., awards, diplomas, degrees,etc). It is also the most valued because it shows initiative and lasts longer.

    Cheers to Angelina Jolie for her near decade long commitment to the cause of the refugee in flight.
    .
    Her remarks encouraging the sheltering countries to embrace and utlilize the strengths each refugee brings with them was a wonderful and persuasive argument for inclusion.
    .
    I was hoping she would bring her two oldest children with her to Washington. Maddox and Pax are old enough to begin to appreciate the importance of World Refugee Day. What an incredible learning experience for them.
    .
    Angelina looks great and smartly dresses comfortably for the long plane ride. I know my legs always get cold while flying and I often wish I had a long full skirt to wrap them.
    .
    Most foreign contributions are not tax deductible. To make them deductible they have to pass first through a U.S. organization such as a US based UN supporting organization. There may be exceptions in the tax code. If the donation is directly to the UN for use overseas I don’t think it’s a tax deductible donation. I am pretty positive that none of the millions she has donated to the Millenium Village and directly to nature preserves, clinics, schools, etc ., overseas are deductible.
    .
    Great Day for focusing on the World Refugees. So sorry to hear about Hillary. I love her. She is just a tremendous woman of great accomplishment and spirit. Her dignity during the campaign in the face of inexcusable misogyny and smears was inspiring.

    Hillary needs to up her calcium intake and fire whoever didn’t properly clean the State Department’s garage floor – this type of injury for woman of a certain age can be very serious in terms of life long resultant pain.

    OT to PT:

    Early review for X’s movie on e!:

    “Think Jennifer Aniston’s love life only seems depressing in the tabloids?

    Then check out this trailer for Love Happens. How does a film with gorgeous, talented stars like Aniston and Aaron Eckhart come off so sad and dour? Sure, he plays a widower and there are lots of shots of Seattle gloom, but it’s not like Angelina Jolie’s in it, too.

    Despite the downbeat tone, these two have great jobs, awesome hair and appropriately wacky colleagues. So come on, give us a montage of Aniston trying on outfits or Eckhart getting misguided love advice from a kindly neighborhood mensch.

    It’s called Love Happens, not You’ll Both Just Die Anyway So What’s the Point?

    Maybe the film is better than this makes it look—we do get a shot of a Twilight-looking forest and Eckhart’s six-pack—but if it’s all handheld cameras and pent-up grief we may let this one pass and just go pick up some magazines at the newsstand instead.

    Because we all deserve a little romance.”

    You called it!

    There is nobody like Angelina! There is no comparison between her and Megan Fox, a big difference except that Fox might be a big fan of Angie to the point of imitating Angie’s tattoo in a slightly different way; Megan should admit it! It would be nice to make a name in Hollywood without riding along the popularity of one!

    Angelina’s overall experience in life speaks for itself! Trash tabloids, SASH!

  • MARLA

    What I love about this story is how Brad made a point of sending Mad, and Pax to escort his Baby Mama to this function. He didin’t want his Beautiful Angelina to be alone, so of course Mad and Pax happily obliged THIS IS WHAT A FAMILY THAT LOVES ONE ANOTHER DOES. . DOESN’T T THAT JUST MELTS YOUR HEART.. . Happy Brad is in Los Angeles with the rest of the family. The Brad Pitt family is gorgeous( Angie , Mad, Pax, Z, Shi, Knox and Viv), take your pick, of course he is not t that bad himself . Going back to the subject matter on hand, I’LL BET THAT SHE WAS THE STAR OF THE FUNCTION. WHAT AN HONOR.

    Dear lostchick. I hope you find yourself in as meaningful a way as Angelina Jolie has.
    .
    I am surrounded by people with advanced degrees most of whom have spent their proffesional lives trying to advance up the career ladder and concentrate on increasing their net worth and retiring their huge student loans.
    .
    The number of people who actually make a difference is small compared with those who do make a difference. Formal degrees are no guarantee of intelligence or the proper use of that intelligence. I think that sometimes all these degreed people just form a mass of inertia not wanting to get their hands dirty with grunt work. Angelina does the grunt work. Her studies as well as her field and policy experience on this issue has made her as much of an expert in the myriad issues touching on the world of refugees as those you would seem ready to label an expert.
    .
    Perhaps you should acquaint yourself with Ms. Jolie’s travel journals or even just google her journeys and work overseas. That way you can educate yourself about her actual work rather than make statements based on your mistaken impressions.
    .
    For the record, Jolie graduated from the independent study program of her high school and complete her courses early. She began college when she studied for a short while at New York University in New York City.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Because she educates herself. You do not have to be in college to have critical thinking skills and to learn how to research.

    I have a Master’s Degree from the world’s highest ranked grad school in my field, and post Masters work and I cannot begin to list some of the idiots I have met in the rarified world of academia.

    It depends on how you use the information. furthermore Angelina’s trips are never “5 min” photo shoots. Check the UNHCR records.
    check the statements people who have travelled with her testify to.

    Here are some other people who did NOT go to college:
    George Washington, Andrew Jackson, Martin Van Buren, Zachary Taylor, Millard Fillmore, Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Johnson, Grover Cleveland and Harry S Truman, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Ben Franklin.

    While Einstien did attend a technical university he also flunked out of high school:
    “Einstein did very poorly in Greek and Latin, perhaps not even finishing highschool (as it is called here in the U.S.) because of that. He went to college in Switzerland, and did very well (A’s, B’s, and a few C+’s) in most subjects, especially mathematics. But, there was one interesting exception. He got an F, in “Physical Experiments for Beginners.” On the report card is written the following: “March 1899: director’s reprimand for nondiligence in physics practicum. Graduated.”

    MORE who never even completed secondary education:
    Andrew Carnegie, Charles Chaplin, William “Buffalo Bill” Cody,
    Noel Coward, Charles Dickens, Isadora Duncan,
    Thomas Edison, Samuel Gompers, U.S. labor leader, Claude Monet, Mark Twain,

    In other words: What is your point?

    Are YOU to stupid to think unless someone is directing your every thought?

    - There’s also the project that Angie started earlier this year with Microsoft to provide legal services for unaccompanies minors. Angie also has similar fund for that she started years ago that’s now a part of the Microsoft project.
    .
    ++++++++++++++++
    .
    In the wee hours of the morning I couldn’t think of the name of Angie’s unaccompanied minors program. It’s the Children’s Defense Fund, which, IIRC, she started with Gene Sperling, who used to be a Clinton White House staff member. BTW – I looked up the name of the Microsoft project and that one is the Kids In Need of Defense program.
    .
    I also mentioned the AIDS & Tuberculosis clinic Brad and Angie started in Ethiopia for Zahara to one day take over. Because I know the trolls like to question our info…here’s Jared’s thread on it…

    Beth I saw that too and at first I thought it was Brad also.. But to me the stance is off. Someone posted earlier that they thought they saw Zee too.. but it was just Maddox’s hand holding a blanket..

    I don’t think Brad made the trip. Just Angie and the boys. If Brad had been there I trust that would have made the news rounds by now..

    I hope she and the boys have a great time in DC.. It was good to see her FRIEND Holly back.. I guess she took some time off after having her baby..
