    If you had any doubt that former community organizer Barack Obama sees his future as a corporate pitchman for the rich and famous (the Ricardo Montalban of the policy set), look no further than the deal that he and his wife, Michele, struck with Penguin Random House for a reported $60 million (which is a...

  • @Stephen Paul Foster
    Great analysis. I read Cashill's book when it came out, mentioned it to some of my "center-left" friends and got sneered at. It was a great book and nailed down one more "fake-Obama," of which there are many. But "fake-writer" is impossible for his sophisticated sycophants in academe and the publishing industry to contemplate. It will be interesting to see how they spin his memoirs. And Michelle? Go online and read her Senior thesis from her Princeton U days -- affirmative action at its best.

    But to anyone who has watched this guy give a speech or an interview (with his jumbled syntax, and irritating tics) over the last 8 years it is obvious that he could never have written anything of interest or staying power. He is clearly not a reader and never seems to have a clear, sustained train of thought. He could never even have worked at Pravda.

    For a comment on one of his early speeches, see;

    http://fosterspeak.blogspot.com/2013_06_01_archive.html

    The wacky Germans worship the ground he walks on, and they think that he is the most brilliant speaker, and the most intelligent human to have ever walked the earth, however a profound truth I have discovered over the last fifty years of pondering the follies of mankind is : Whatever the Germans consider to be good is bad, and vice-versa, which in itself is a sad documentary of the progression of civilization when one considers such awesome minds as Goethe or Bach.

  • 60 million,from a penguin…….here is one for the conspiracy nuts.

    interesting history the owners have…..Bertelsmann And Pearson Complete Merger.even gaddafi had a finger in the pie…..some time ago

    from wiki

    Libyan Investment Authority
    In June 2010, Pearson Plc received notification that the Libyan Investment Authority (LIA) founded by Muammar Gaddafi’s son Saif al-Islam Gaddafi as a sovereign fund, had acquired 24,431,000 shares within the company via Euroclear. On further investigation, Pearson said the LIA may have acquired an additional 2,141,179 shares, resulting in a total interest of 26,572,179 shares. At the time, this represented a major holding of 3.27% within the company and the investment was worth around £280 million

    1945 to 1970 Edit
    After World War II, the company portrayed itself to the Allied Control Authority as a Christian publisher that was part of the resistance to Nazism and allegedly persecuted. Ties to National Socialist organizations were initially denied. After it became known that erroneous, or at least inadequate, statements had been made, Heinrich Mohn stepped down as the head of the publishing house.[

  • Everybody knows what a liar he is. I think Penguin Random House is going to lose a lot of money.
    The tell all books will be where the money is, that is, if the authors are allowed to live long enough to write them.

  • Matthew, I think you’ve done writers and writing a good turn with your essay. I hope you can expand on it.

    Just an afterthought here: One executive hired me to write a procedures manual. Young, naïve, and desperate for the job, I didn’t ask the sort of questions I ought to have. Only when I was committed did I find out the manual was a recommendation by an outside consultant hired to prep the firm for sale, rumors of which were commonplace before I showed up. Also, the executive had failed to tell the union leaders and rank-and-file what I was doing. They feared job reclassifications and rate-cutting, and saw me, mistakenly, as the guy who was doing that. It was a lousy experience. So, words, and the “constituencies” for words, and misunderstandings about words, can have influence and even power.

    I got out of technical writing, and I’ve been wary ever since of allowing whatever talents I have to be used by lazy or game-playing management slobs. I’ve paid a price for that wariness, I’m sure, but I’m okay with that.

  • By hacking Vault 8 of the CIA I have obtained the first draft of Barack and Michelle Obama’s memoirs, personally hand written, which I now share with unz.com readers:

    The Search for Perfect Negritude by Barack and Michelle Obama

    “We’re black, y’all
    We’re black, y’all
    We’re blackity, blackity, black, y’all
    And we’re black, y’all
    We’re black y’all
    And we’re blackity, blackity, black y’all.”

    Lather, rinse, repeat!

  • Another 60 million dollar nail in the coffin of the elitist dominated Democratic party. It merely confirms what has already happened in our recent presidential election. Obama was a good actor, moulded, directed and financially supported by a national cast of elite bankers, billionaires and dupes. But the people were not completely fooled and a candidate who spoke out against him was chosen by the people. We are in new uncharted territory.

  • Virtue signaling will drive it up the bestseller lists, but how many people will actually read it?

    I want a book that explains in detail; how a man that oversaw a domestic surveillance system that rivals anything in the former USSR, gave a trillion dollars to banks, weaponized African Americans, overthrew governments whenever the whim struck him, is still somehow celebrated as some great champion of civil/human rights.

    Not only did our emperor have no clothes, but he was also a murderous cheerleader for the deep state. Whose going to write that book?

    A lot of people blame Coolidge for the Depression. Herbert Hoover, they say, just blundered into it.

    Obama will sell many, many books, and not just as secretive pay back. It will be carried around by Liberals as a status marker, the same way they buy, but don't actually read, the inane babbling of that other Magical Negro, Genius T. Coates. What, you think black people read that stuff?

    Surely, every white woman who lives in Park Slope and owns a yoga mat will buy a copy, plus several as gifts. It will be an essential accessory, the talk of the town. As as a wise man once said, and I think it was me, nobody ever went broke overestimating how eagerly wealthy urban women would spend money on status signaling.

    My first thought was now the payoffs begin for past services rendered. We have a system of gentlemen thieves where payment is assured down the line rather than at time of service. No grubbiness or envelopes with cash involved. It's all legal now and has evolved into an honor system. This is an inducement for the next group of willing helpers who know they won't get double-crossed or shorted. It's institutionalized and the good people who have gone to the good schools need never send any signals or wink their eyes; it's all silently understood.
    I see where other commenters have also picked up on this so it's nice to see that there's still some sensible people left. Shakespeare, were he around today, wouldn't get offered $60M.

    “We have a system of gentlemen thieves where payment is assured down the line rather than at time of service.”

    Yes, the common pattern in my area is for budding political players to take strong advocacy positions. After the local entrenched elites take their measure, by political roughhousing if necessary, the players are then encouraged to vie for office or they’re placed in do-nothing government jobs. If they’re good boys and girls and do the elites’ bidding when told, there’s a good chance–not a guarantee–they’ll be rewarded with a goodie package.

    One local young guy with an Ivy League degree was placed in an “organizing collaborative”, a Leftish puppet group that essentially fronted for the Democrats. Knowing nothing about the grocery business, he’d publicly scold local convenience store owners in the ‘hood as “merchants of death” (actual quote) for doing relatively big volume in beer and wine sales.

    Mr. Ivy League’s goodie package? He’ll be opening a brew-pub soon with a combo of government loans, outright grants, and tax abatements. His wife got a job as zoning inspector in the largest city in my area.

  • thank the genes of most folks…they do not read books.

    And as I state from time to time, liberals are B students, read books, etc. while A students know when to put a book down, as well as grow up. We may survive all the B students and their righteousness, but it will not be because of Real Books, it will be because of arms.

    The money is being paid to the book publisher by various interested parties who got rich off of obama's decisions....obama scratched their backs while president and now they are scratching his back...they will make a deal with the book publisher to buy some huge amount of the book from the publisher and then they will burn the purchased books...it's a payoff, a quid pro quo for what obama did for them while he was president...isn't this obvious???

  • Matthew, thanks. That wincingly outrageous $60 million deal is too obviously for something other than the scholarly Obama plying the writerly craft. I’ll go with the comment above that there’s a guaranteed institutional buyer that’ll be okay with remaindering and pulping most of its purchases.

    “In my experience, writers live for the printed word. In their early days they collected pens, then typewriters and, finally, word processors. They like the smell of ink and print shops, and they are forever buying paper, typewriter ribbon, fountain pens, or notebooks (never quite happy with the pads they own). They buy books the way most people buy milk, and they are endlessly marking passages in magazines or clipping newspapers.”

    Yep, Matthew, you nailed it. The writers I know are, well, “writerly”, even if they have day jobs, and even if their writing brings them very little income for their efforts. There’s always the hope that a published letter, essay, or book will draw attention and influence people who are more important than the writer himself. (N. b: I’m a former tech writer and do a lot of small-time, mostly local writing.)

  • Fascism pays! March 06, 2017 White House logs show Obama talked to the Russians and Iranian regime advocates… no outcry from the media for 8 years

    As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, during Barack Obama’s eight years in the Oval Office, Iranian officials and lobbyists – two high-ranking representatives of Tehran’s government – held more than 30 meetings with top administration officials, indicative of the Obama regime’s earlier admissions it began “negotiating” the so-called “nuclear deal” very early on.

  • Great analysis. I read Cashill’s book when it came out, mentioned it to some of my “center-left” friends and got sneered at. It was a great book and nailed down one more “fake-Obama,” of which there are many. But “fake-writer” is impossible for his sophisticated sycophants in academe and the publishing industry to contemplate. It will be interesting to see how they spin his memoirs. And Michelle? Go online and read her Senior thesis from her Princeton U days — affirmative action at its best.

    But to anyone who has watched this guy give a speech or an interview (with his jumbled syntax, and irritating tics) over the last 8 years it is obvious that he could never have written anything of interest or staying power. He is clearly not a reader and never seems to have a clear, sustained train of thought. He could never even have worked at Pravda.

    For a comment on one of his early speeches, see;

    Delayed bribery. Direct payments to high government officials while they are in office cross the line, but "understandings" can be reached that big rewards (book deals, other riches) eventually will be forthcoming if the government official toes the line of his paymasters. It was a great challenge for Obama's Jewish financiers to get him to do the "right" things in cases where Obama's Muslimist sympathies were pulling him in a different direction.

    In a similar vein, Colin Powell got his luxury car from the Saudis after he left government service.

  • In fairness to Ulysses Grant, the portion of his memoirs concerning the Civil War are considered quite good–I’ve heard them compared to Caesar’s Commentaries. Grant also wrote under the extreme pressure of knowing that he was dying (throat cancer, I think) and also knowing that revenue from book sales after his death were the only means he had of supporting his family. He also probably knew even then that he would be remembered as a Civil War general and not as a president.

    No rational person, aside from a historian, would part with the money or spend the time reading, what will almost certainly be the ghostwritten, memoirs of Barack and Michelle Obama.

    All the King’s Men is a superb political novel, and outstanding in many other ways, but it sure starts slowly. You have to hang in there but when the novel “grabs you,” you can’t put it down.
