DAILY BEAST TUMBLRS

12:49 PM, April 5th, 2013
But fighting to give women and girls a fighting chance isn’t a nice thing to-do. It isn’t some luxury that we get to when we have time on our hands to spend doing that . This is a core imperative for every human being and every society. If we do not complete a campaign for women’s rights and opportunities the world we want to live in the country we all love and cherish will not be what it should be.
Read Hillary Clinton’s keynote speech from the 2013 Women in the World Summit.

Hillary backstage at Women in the World talking to Dr. Mamphela Ramphele, who is a South African presidential hopeful (and possibly first woman president in the country). She said to Hillary, “I want to see you complete the unfinished business.” They then went off for a private pow-wow. 

The feels.

Yes, all the feels.

  1. Report: Bank of America to Cut 2,000 Jobs: Bank of America is planning on cutting 2,000 jobs—including 400 in its investment banking, corporate banking, and sales and trading units—The Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday. 
  2. May Day Protests Across the GlobeHappy May Day! Workers across the globe planned strikes and marches to demand better labor conditions on Tuesday, while Occupy Wall Street hopes to launch a spring awakening of its protest movement. Occupy called for “no work, no school, no shopping, no banking” throughout the country, as spokesman Mark Bray said the movement wants to show that the “99 percenters make things run in this country.”
  3. Bin Laden Planned Obama Assassination: In the months before his death, Osama bin Laden planned assassinations of President Obama, General Petraeus, and other U.S. officials, while also considering changing the name of al Qaeda due to “disaster after disaster.” John Brennan, President Obama’s top counterterrorism official, said the documents found in the raid that killed bin Laden showed that he felt the terrorism network had become a “shadow” of its former self and its core leadership would soon be “no longer relevant.” 
  4. M.P.s: Rupert Murdoch Not ‘Fit’Members of the British Parliament who are investigating phone hacking called Rupert Murdoch “not a fit person” to lead News Corp. and said he had misled them. Murdoch “turned a blind eye and exhibited willful blindness,” said the report by the 11-member House of Commons Culture, Media and Sport. 
  5. Clinton Heads to ChinaU.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton left for China on Monday, where a blind dissident is reportedly being protected at the U.S. embassy in Beijing. Both governments avoided making any official comments about Chen Guangcheng, who escaped from house arrest last week, but officials said that Chen is expected to demand to stay in China and continue his campaign for reform.

"Text From Hillary" ends after single awesome week

shortformblog:

textsfromhillaryclinton:

It’s been an overwhelming—and hilarious—week for us here at Texts from Hillary (TFH). What started as a joke at the bar between two friends turned into a national conversation about Secretary Clinton and went as far as talks about 2016.

After a week that included 32 posts, 83,000 shares on Facebook, 8,400 Twitter followers, over 45K Tumblr followers, news stories around the world, Renee Montagne from Morning Edition saying “ROFL,” a Maureen Dowd column, and a tweet from ?uest Love, we think it’s time to stop while we are ahead.

As far as memes go – it has gone as far as it can go. Is it really possible to top a submission from the Secretary herself? No. But then when you get to text with her in real life – it’s just over. At least for us. But we have no doubt it will live on with all of you on the Internet.

The site will stay up but we won’t be posting anything new here. You can follow us on Twitter (@ASmith83, @Sllambe) and Tumblr (Stacy at ImWithKanye and Adam’s work account, Public Campaign Action Fund).

Thanks for all the LOLz. We truly appreciate all the support.

It turns out that memes really do come true.

-Stacy and Adam

Happy to see that they went out on top.

Well played.

Texting with Secretary Hillary Clinton.

(Proof of her submission.) (via: Stacy & Adam)

We reached out to Philippe Reines, a Senior Adviser to Hillary Clinton, who confirms that this post on the Texts From Hillary Tumblr was in fact credited to Secretary Clinton:

Yes, the submission credited to Secretary Clinton is in fact from her.  She also just had the creators of the site in her office about an hour ago.

And now we have the photo to confirm as well! Congrats guys. 

UPDATE: The Ryan Gosling one was her favorite (via The Huffington Post).

  1. Syrian Fire Crosses Turkish BorderSyrian forces crossed more than one line when they exchanged fire with rebel forces in a clash that spilled over into Turkey. One person was killed and more injured at the Killis refugee camp on the Turkish side of the shared border. 
  2. North Korea Prepares Nuke TestSouth Korean intelligence officials warned that the North is preparing a nuclear weapons test to follow its controversial long-range missile test, according to reports Monday. 
  3. Microsoft Grabs AOL Patents for $1B: The technology world is in an arms race, and intellectual property is the weapon of choice. Microsoft bought its way toward the front of the pack Monday when it announced a deal with AOL that will give it 800 of AOL’s patents and license to 300 more, all for just slightly north of $1 billion. 
  4. Prosecutor Decides No Grand JuryThe special prosecutor tasked with deciding whether to press charges against the man who shot Trayvon Martin has decided not to hand the case to a grand jury. Special prosecutor Angela Corey will now decide whether or not to press charges against shooter George Zimmerman.
  5. Hillary Clinton to Skip DNCHillary Clinton has long been a stable figure at Democratic conventions—a consistent presence dating back to the infamous 1968 convention in Chicago, her spokesman pointed out. But the secretary of state is sitting out this year’s convention in North Carolina, as part of her commitment to avoiding political activity (she’s actually banned from taking part by federal law).
