Why is Amazon running a full page of “Michelle Obama for President” T-Shirts? What does Bezos know that we don’t know?

And why did Michelle decide to launch her new book on November 13th, 2018, just a week after the midterm elections? Was that merely a coincidence or was the date chosen by her political advisors for some other reason?

And what about those rumors that Oprah might run for president in 2020? Were they really triggered by off-the-cuff comments by Seth Meyers at the Golden Globes or was Oprah really just a stalking horse for Candidate Michelle?

There’s no doubt that Ms. Obama is wildly popular among liberals and Democrats. According to Gallup, her favorability rating exceeds her husband’s or his two predecessors, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton. Check out this blurb from a 2017 Gallup survey: “First lady Michelle Obama will leave the White House with the same 68% favorable rating she had when she first moved in. Majorities of Americans have consistently expressed a favorable view of Michelle Obama…. The outgoing first lady’s highest rating was 72%, two months into her husband’s first term in office.” (“President Obama Leaves White House With 58% Favorable Rating”, Gallup)

Michelle’s popularity makes her the overwhelming favorite to face Trump in the 2020 presidential elections, but will she? She says she’s not interested, but I’m not buying it. My guess is that she is being coached by the DNC public relations team who want to roll her out like a new box of soap suds sometime after the midterm elections. Isn’t that what’s really going on? After the ballots are counted, Michelle is going launch her 30-city book tour during which time large throngs of frenzied supporters will ‘spontaneously’ pop up everywhere demanding that their favorite liberal icon throw her hat in the ring and join the fight against ‘evil’ Trump. I can almost hear her yielding to their feverish pleas already:

“I don’t want to be president, but I will do it for you, my people.”

What a scam. Democrat leaders obviously know a winner when they see one, which explains why she got $60 million for her new book. Were the publishers really that impressed with her modest talent as a writer or was she being paid for ‘services to be rendered at some future date’? It sounds like a payoff to me.

Like her husband, Michelle is a thoroughly-reliable political marionette who will play the ‘liberal card’ to maximum effect while quashing the unions, kowtowing to Wall Street, perpetuating the wars, and ensuring that the bulk of the nation’s wealth continues to flow upwards to our glorious 1 percent overlords. It’s worth noting, that Barack’s eight year stint as Prez represented the greatest shift of wealth from middle-to-upper class in the nation’s 240 year history. I fully expect Michelle to break that record during her upcoming tenure as chief executive.

The Democrats aren’t stupid, they know they need Michelle to beat Trump. Biden’s too old, Bernie’s too liberal and Wall Street wouldn’t go near Warren with a 10-foot pole. That leaves Michelle, they’re only hope. Of course, the Dems could change directions altogether, stop playing identity politics, and take a stand on the issues, but no one really expects them to do that. The Democrats have completely abandoned the issues just as they have jettisoned their platform which no one has even referenced in the last 20 years or so. That’s why the party is no longer perceived to have any core convictions, it’s because the corrupt party leadership merely march in lockstep with their big money constituents. A recent survey in the Washington Post shows how low the Dems have sunk. Here’s an excerpt:

“Some 37 percent say the (Democratic) party currently stands for something, while 52 percent say it mainly stands against Trump. Even among Democrats, over one-quarter say their party primarily stands in opposition to Trump rather than for their own agenda.” (Washington Post)

The survey confirms what most people already know, that the Dems stand for nothing, it’s the party of nothing, the Nothing Party. Sure, they hate Trump, but beyond that, they have zilch. It’s a terrible indictment of a party that has lost it’s raison d’etre.

The Democrats are not going to change directions, they’re not going to become an issues-oriented, antiwar, party of the working man. That’s not going to happen. They’re going to implement the same basic strategy they used with Barack Obama, that is, select a person with impressive oratory skills and great personal charisma, transport him to venues that magnify his popularity, fabricate an aura of celebrity around his uber-positive persona, and make sure he speaks in only the broadest and most nebulous terms. (So he isn’t accused of reneging on campaign promises.)

This is what the party bigwigs want, a female Obama who will do exactly what she’s told and faithfully execute the warmongering imperial agenda without the slightest reservation.

Michelle is not only the perfect choice , she also comes with an impeccable resume. She is a Princeton under-grad with a Harvard Law degree. She graduated magna cum laude, top of her class. She has a spotless public service record with virtually no skeletons in the closet. She is a paragon, a shining example of strength, virtue and perseverance, a telegenic colossus who can deliver a barnburner with the best of them, and then, mingle with the little people hoeing weeds in the White House veggie garden. She’s got it all. She’s a black woman whose name recognition and international stature make her the most formidable candidate in the country today, bar none.
But the one thing that makes Michelle more attractive than any of the other Democratic candidates, is the fact that she is a proven commodity, a trusted ally who party elites know they can depend on. Michelle Obama is not going to rock the boat, she’s not going to try to lift the country’s cast-offs out of poverty, or try to raise living standards for ordinary working people, or put an end the bloody foreign wars. She’s going to do exactly what her husband did for 8 years, exalt in his role as a meaningless figurehead who helped to conceal the sinister puppetmasters who pulled his strings. Michelle is going to do the same damn thing, which is why the party bosses love her.

    I don’t know. I’m what you a very conservative voter. I donated to, and voted for, Trump. One thing I find appealing about Michelle Obama is she wouldn’t have a John Bolton NSA or a Nikki Haley Amb. to U.N. or a Mike Pompeo as SecState. So, right now in this staunch paleo-cons mind I would lean to Michelle over Trump. But by mid-2019 I’ll have a clearer picture of the role of the Trump über-neocons.

    We’ll see who is really riding high once the Mueller report, the OIG report, and other investigations all come out. The Demo and MSM media narrative is that The Donald will be exposed as a colluder with Russia and obstructor of justice.

    The analysis from the right is that Obama admin Intel bigwigs, HRC, and perhaps BHO himself will all be exposed as colluders with Russia and obstructors of justice.

    Michelle’s 2020 prospects hang in the balance.

    Astute observation, White Wolf. Be careful, though, remember what happened to Joan Rivers.

    Here's an interesting historical tidbit you may want to pursue. Go to classicalcapital.com and scroll down to the article, "The Red Symphony". Near the end is a reference to a man the ruling elite needed in the White House. "That man was Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt." Two sides of the same coin. I think of Barak and Michelle in the same terms.

    The Obamas, contrary to popular opinion, are not popular. Why would they be? What did they do for anybody. Obama with his "you didn't build that" to a bunch of businessmen who did just that. It was Obama who didn't build anything. They just hauled his butt up, rigged the election per Eric Schmidt's Google-magic, and voila, 8 years of deterioration and battering of national self-respect. Does anybody outside the liberal-loony tune of the DC Metro area, or the fairy lands of the upper northwest, seriously believe Obama was anything but a ghastly traitor?
    As for Michelle, I don't know if the gender-bending can continue indefinitely. There will be more Joan Rivers sacrificed on altar of Deep State secrecy I fear.
    And anyway, the creature, whatever sex be-it, was briefly famous before they wiped it off the net, for having been caught on camera saying, "All this for a flag" while looking distastefully at some Marines trying to get control of a flag in the wind. Sort of a metaphor for the whole 8 years.
    Oh, and the millions of tax-payer dollars spent on their vacations and the fact of their mysterious great wealth when all they had in 2008 was a big house in Chicago worth maybe 400,000.

    I don’t think she’ll run. She’s too busy engaging in (and enjoying) conspicuous consumption, something she fully exploited while married to the President. Remember all the trips? Plus, from what I’ve observed she very thin skinned and not good in spontaneous speaking situations. They’d have to feed her answers in an ear piece like they did Dumya & probably Hillary. My money’s on Tamale Harris. Much smoother in public, visually more marketably pale, a reliable 1% tool, and most importantly, deep experience running for office – something Michelle has never done.

    Concerning voting as a statement. , only not showing up voting, could be considered an expression of civic rights in a meaningful way. Whoever a candidate taking advantage of that, will loose much credibility. So the process of pushing and shoving candidates will be revisioned.

    Consider the following smart quote, someone intellectually higher up might fill in the author: "A State deserves his President". The population has a medium cognitive ability that is only between one to two variants lower than it's public elites. Even that is borderline to silent duds as Michele, Hillarious Hillary, and the current critter Trump. It is sorry to see, that democracy, a numbers game, fails, but it predictably, consistently does. The relevance of our rulers is measured to the troops. Democracy floats dummies belly up.

    This was never dangerous in American history, but since a term or ten, the ignorance of policy making shows internationally. There is no elegance and smoothness to it at all. It has created outbreaks of globalist elites infighting to squeeze the US priviledge into a more confined place, and who cares, the common deplorable even, must somehow smell the mustard gas. The US elites should adjust to the inside, some predators are smelling blood.

    "The majority of women have fallen into artillery, combat engineers, and low altitude air defense gunners, where the physical requirements are less stringent."

  36. The problem is not who will run, but that those who are permitted by the media controlled system(note: the governed slave-drivers have been excluded from most candidate appointments:Pharaohs don’t want them), to run are few indeed. Just the fact that a depleted has been like Hillary, with human rights baggage and clear ability to mismanage just about anything has been mentioned to serve the governed from an elected position within the USA is sufficient to prove the current system lacks for want of democratic responsibility.

    The governed American slaves need a broad field of candidates, who honestly present their real characters and who sign “personal network backed, if elected agreements” to conduct official affairs, in strict accord to the campaign promises made to win one of the elected salaried and all expense paid membership in the (527 educated, socially privileged Slave Drivers that constitute the) USA.

    The USA has but 527 elected, salaried members. There are no others! Memberships in the USA are time limited. Yes the 527 do hire and pay many slaves, but as a matter of fact, the only USAers are those who currently receive a salary because they occupy one of the identified, time-period limited seats, as a result of an election process.

    Does America really need another Black man as president?

    We’ve never had a black man as President of the United States … we had a half black/half white guy in the White House for 8 years.

    True, he ran as a black man — that’s the only way he could get elected — our first Affirmative Action White House occupant. If he’d run on his white half, he’d still be a nobody and a nothing in chicago … Oh, right — he is — just not in chicago.

    Thats funny. I think 0bama kinda ruined it for black presidents, for at least a generation. Didn't do the "democrat" party any favors either. Proved that there really is no difference between the two parties.
    I'd still be willing to forgive 0bama if he would come out and spill the beans, lay it all on the table, tell us who/what the problem is, names and all. Get everyone talking and whatnot.
    But he'll never do that, hes in the club now and doesn't want to get kicked out, he doesn't and never gave a spit about America or black Americans. Just another puppet and failure to America.
    GFY 0bama, enjoy the money, cause your legacy is in the toilet
    Vote 3rd party next time, if we're still alive, or if you vote at all...

    Concerning voting as a statement. , only not showing up voting, could be considered an expression of civic rights in a meaningful way. Whoever a candidate taking advantage of that, will loose much credibility. So the process of pushing and shoving candidates will be revisioned.

    Consider the following smart quote, someone intellectually higher up might fill in the author: “A State deserves his President”. The population has a medium cognitive ability that is only between one to two variants lower than it’s public elites. Even that is borderline to silent duds as Michele, Hillarious Hillary, and the current critter Trump. It is sorry to see, that democracy, a numbers game, fails, but it predictably, consistently does. The relevance of our rulers is measured to the troops. Democracy floats dummies belly up.

    This was never dangerous in American history, but since a term or ten, the ignorance of policy making shows internationally. There is no elegance and smoothness to it at all. It has created outbreaks of globalist elites infighting to squeeze the US priviledge into a more confined place, and who cares, the common deplorable even, must somehow smell the mustard gas. The US elites should adjust to the inside, some predators are smelling blood.

    maybe it wasn't such a good idea to throw blacks under the bus on protecting their freedoms -- that the party of Lincoln -- so often referenced, lost black popular support of those set free (albeit by circumstance and not purpose) rests squarely on the shoulders of the republican party.


    Instead of importing foreign labor: isirsh, italians, czechs, poles, latinos, chinese, etc. perhaps the republicans could have ensured that they were not undercut by the same foreigners.


    Sometime ago Mr Derbishire cited a speech by GW Carver, I think, and that spells out the very behavior that gradually eroded black confidence in the "party of Lincoln." In less than fifty tears Republicans squandered millions of votes.

    General Grant, then President Grant gave up the good fight and settled for latinos as consequence -- blacks are about to get that slap in the face again by both parties. I think blacks should join in challenging all of this liberal nonsense --- but silly comments and shallow interpretation of crime stats, no better example than the war on police -- a war on police that amounted to less even 0.05% even if one attributed all the deaths at the hands of blacks -- some war.

    But let's take your scenario for what is is worth ---

    Let's say that every single prisoner is black. That's roughly 1 million. And by that number you claim that blacks are inherently inclined to criminal activity and as such will vote democratically.

    of the 41 million blacks in this country 1 million amounts to roughly 2.439024390% of that population. That means You have written off 95% of them merely because a minority are in prison. I have to tell you if someone came to me and said 4% is indicative of the whole pie and then proceeded to sell me one of theirs -- I would consider them m ore than unhinged. Because of the rhetoric that would mean that 93% should be voting republican --- the rhetoric explains your failure to appeal.

    Because in the minds of so many they have yet uncoupled slavery socialogy of blacks as defined by slave owners and a host of others. That rhetoric seeps through in nearly every word uttered and action taken -- so let's stop pretending that it's just black stupidity -- that started out in the republican camp ---

    This president was handed a golden opportunity and instead of carving out a fresh new and vibrant course as advertised he has engaged in a petty competition with the last executive over a nobel peace prize. It's bizarre. Oddly he has not dismantled the immigration policy -- no wonder why. Nevermind that aside from North Korea and and Iran he has embraced every other dynamic -- no wonder why.

    As a conservative it's a long tiresome game to listen to the bemoaning about the country's state and instead of looking :

    prayer in school
    student protests over Vietnam in which they got the issue completely backwards
    there advocacy for free love, drugs and rockn'roll
    homosexual as normative


    all major societal shifts they bemoan Brown verses the board of ed -- in which the evidence was clear the schools were not equal
    they are on about affirmative action that benefits mostly whites by large margins and white foreigners or wanna be whites
    instead of registering reality that it's large white owned corporations that undermined the economy or sent jobs overseas or want easy immigration . . .

    Instead it's all about blacks and crime -- and old worn hat. That never fit and has grown smaller now. Since it's the internal workings of all whites who instinctively embrace this form of untruth , it may gain votes and of course russians, chinese, hispanics and light skinned muslims will fall of all over themselves -- extolling the virtues of tiger mommies as if black mothers whose history n o chinese in this country could touch ---


    As a conservative who has no small issues with blacks on politics and social agendas -- the blame game just have little in the way of teeth save for it's convenience and ability to garner votes.

    But after getting the votes -- our candidate seems heck bent on slapping those who voted for him full in the face -- and the claim here is that it's black people's fault.

    I am curious of the number of women signing up for combat arms.

    This Marine Times article from early March gives the numbers as 92 female Marines in combat arms, but only 11 of those are in infantry roles.
    According to the article, the Army has about 500 females in combat arms.

    “The majority of women have fallen into artillery, combat engineers, and low altitude air defense gunners, where the physical requirements are less stringent.”

    Putting forth Michele Obama has got to be the ultimate stupidity by the Dems. I would not be surprised if the GOP didnt seize on this and promote Michele also as a way to further ruin the Dems.

    I got into a knock down drag out once by calling Obama a racist. But Obama is more like racism “lite’ compared to his wife who is totally into the ‘Black Grudge’ against whites.
    Obama embraced the ‘liberal Jews’ as opposed to the ‘militant Jews” that Trump supports—the difference there being the liberal and militant Jews disagree only on how Israel should behave, the liberals believe in talking the Isr-Pal peace process to death whereas the militants want the US to bomb everyone in the ME so the Jews can rape and rule the region. Obama’s racism and embrace of liberal Jews stems from his own belief that Blacks and Jews have both been Victims” of the White men.
    Michele is more a ‘militant black’ than her husband.

    Read her college thesis :

    https://www.politico.com/pdf/080222_MOPrincetonThesis_1-251.pdf

    Here’s her introduction:
    “The purpose of this study is to examine various attitudes of Black Princeton alumni in their present state and as they are perceived by the alumni to have changed over time. …
    “These experiences have made it apparent to me that the path I have chosen to follow by attending Princeton will likely lead to my further integration and/or assimilation into a White cultural and social structure that will only allow me to remain on the periphery of society; never becoming a full participant. This realization has presently, made my goals to actively utilize my resources to benefit the Black community more desirable.”

It was four years ago that the story about Michelle broke and the way they handled it was to pay no attention to it and let it die. But, many bdividuals have found out the facts that "Michelle" is really a male. Obama has been an abomination and a lie from the moment of his illegitimate conception-uncle frank is his"real" father. Obama senior is not. Why would any one want such below the lowest level feces exceusted filth like her or his husband in any office. Plus he's a communist. Obama also is a terminal liar who never attended the colleges or universities he said he did. His "records" are sealed. Why ? Because they don't exist. No one who was at those schools remembers that dirt bag because he never attended those schools. He's a lie. Michelle-Michael is a lie. Joan Rivers made the accurate statement the " she-Michelle -is a tranny". Joan " accidentally" died about a month later during a medical procedure . She was silenced by Obama and his ilk for speaking the truth about Barry's tranny "wife" and Him. If anything, both Obama's should be taken into custody and charged with high treason, tried and found guilty.

    Dear moron......I made no such claim. I said simply that blacks make up a large number of the prison population and Dems see Blacks as a reliable source of Dem votes. Both of these statements are true. Blacks, justly or unjustly imprisoned are a large number in prisons----A FACT----that even black activist site. That Dems , obviously more than Repubs, court the black vote is also A FACT......hence giving former prisoners the vote favors the Dems

    Let’s say that every single prisoner is black. That’s roughly 1 million. And by that number you claim that blacks are inherently inclined to criminal activity and as such will vote democratically.
     
    This is a very interesting illustration of typical leftist/ anti-White "reasoning." Let's break it down, shall we?

    1. Imagine/ fantasize:
    "Let’s say that every single prisoner is black. That’s roughly 1 million."

    2. Project, while postulating irrelevant causal connections:
    "And by that number you claim that blacks are inherently inclined to criminal activity and as such will vote democratically."

    3. "Explain" how this combination of fantasy and projection demonstrates that the other person has obvious mental problems:

    "I have to tell you if someone came to me and said 4% is indicative of the whole pie and then proceeded to sell me one of theirs — I would consider them m ore than unhinged. "

    4. QED


    Fascinating. Meanwhile, back in the real world:

    1. If we were to look at actual statistics, and assuming that you were actually attempting to make a semi-coherent point about "criminal activity," that would relate to criminal records, not current incarceration. More than 22% of Black males have served a prison sentence (i.e. committed, and been caught and convicted for, a serious crime) by the time they reach their early 30s.
    http://scholar.harvard.edu/files/brucewestern/files/western_asr.pdf
    Almost 1/3 lifetime. Felons (not just current inmates) are ineligible to vote in many states. In NY, felons who are currently imprisoned or on parole are ineligible. Hence the pardons.

    2. Actually, the "claim" that Blacks have commit violent crimes at vastly higher rates that Whites is not based on this sort of vague speculation. It's based on simple, well-known facts, such as:
    Blacks are 13% of the US population, yet commit >50% of homicides. NYC has good stats on crime by race/ ethnicity (FBI stats conflate Whites and mestizos as perpetrators, while tracking them separately as victims). What do they show?

    Blacks in NYC shoot people at at a per capita rate that is 77x the rate that Whites do. Not percent; 77x times greater.

    https://kek.gg/i/6RYPNp.jpg

    Blacks' propensity to vote Democrat is a simple, well-documented fact about the real world: one that does not require speculation, fantasy, or postulated causal connections to criminal activity. Discovering this simple fact is better done by using something called a "search engine" and engaging in an activity known as "reading" than by fantasizing, by the way. Using these techniques would allow you do discover that Blacks have voted right around 90% Democrat in recent presidential elections.

    If Blacks are more likely to be felons, and more likely to vote Democrat, then allowing felons to vote will be helpful to Democrat candidates, regardless of the presence or absence of a causal relationship between the two. Correlation is all that is required.

    3. See above -- read it again.

    Hope that helps to introduce you to a concept sometimes known as "empirically-based reasoning," which often gives you better results in addressing real world problems that the alternative approach of random speculation (which you seem to prefer).

    This president was handed a golden opportunity and instead of carving out a fresh new and vibrant course as advertised he has engaged in a petty competition with the last executive over a nobel peace prize. It's bizarre. Oddly he has not dismantled the immigration policy -- no wonder why. Nevermind that aside from North Korea and and Iran he has embraced every other dynamic -- no wonder why.

    As a conservative it's a long tiresome game to listen to the bemoaning about the country's state and instead of looking :

    prayer in school
    student protests over Vietnam in which they got the issue completely backwards
    there advocacy for free love, drugs and rockn'roll
    homosexual as normative


    all major societal shifts they bemoan Brown verses the board of ed -- in which the evidence was clear the schools were not equal
    they are on about affirmative action that benefits mostly whites by large margins and white foreigners or wanna be whites
    instead of registering reality that it's large white owned corporations that undermined the economy or sent jobs overseas or want easy immigration . . .

    Instead it's all about blacks and crime -- and old worn hat. That never fit and has grown smaller now. Since it's the internal workings of all whites who instinctively embrace this form of untruth , it may gain votes and of course russians, chinese, hispanics and light skinned muslims will fall of all over themselves -- extolling the virtues of tiger mommies as if black mothers whose history n o chinese in this country could touch ---


    As a conservative who has no small issues with blacks on politics and social agendas -- the blame game just have little in the way of teeth save for it's convenience and ability to garner votes.

    But after getting the votes -- our candidate seems heck bent on slapping those who voted for him full in the face -- and the claim here is that it's black people's fault.

    Whatever works regardless how bankrupt.

    Good grief . . .

    And by that number you claim that blacks are inherently inclined to criminal activity and as such will vote democratically.

    Dear moron……I made no such claim. I said simply that blacks make up a large number of the prison population and Dems see Blacks as a reliable source of Dem votes. Both of these statements are true. Blacks, justly or unjustly imprisoned are a large number in prisons—-A FACT—-that even black activist site. That Dems , obviously more than Repubs, court the black vote is also A FACT……hence giving former prisoners the vote favors the Dems

    I suggest you roam around the threads some more and look for a better comment to twist and misrepresent for your Saturday morning babble and pseudo moral soapbox.

    Well Bezos is on the Defense Policy Board, and both his Amazon and his WaPo are CIA contractors, so he supposedly knows a lot of things we don’t–not all of them necessarily accurate. There is this famous indignant Chris Matthews quote, I think about the Nevada primary: “The republicans just let anybody vote, where’s the leadership? The Dems have Pelosi and [that Mormon we all meanwhile forgot about] all over the state to make sure everything goes the right way.” TPTB are determined as hell that next time there’s gonna be no surprises, so voters have to be told well in time what’s in store for them. Given that at least Dems voters but not only they like nothing better than “leadership” from their betters, it may work for them.

    I think Mr EliteCommInc you might find the election outcome to be the same [precision of the measurement at 10^18 or better, because those elected to serve as slave drivers, serve the Pharaohs]. The same law firm in Belize, produces candidates for each of the two parties (the red party and the blue party); voters kill each other over which is to be the elected. Why, because the party system is part of Pharaoh controlled divide and conquer strategy, a strategy which allows media to hype the governed slaves into frenzies.

    What is needed is a system independent of the Pharaoh controlled selection process (the process that places a person into the position of party backed candidate). Needed is a system that can nationalize governed slave awareness of the pros and cons possessed by non party candidates and that can provide governed voters assurances that the non party candidates and their sources of money or access to things have no attachment whatsoever to anything or anyone associated to the pharaoh controlled, slave driver implemented system that governs the multitudes of slaves.

    Also such an independent selection process can make sure the candidates each sign enforceable agreements that require the successful candidate to engage or not allow to be engaged any activity not part of the candidates campaign promises.

    The black men’s prison workshop consortium deciding on economic policy/ monetary policy.

    I have no doubt that members of the FDA contacted the black prisoners working in the kitchen to get the best ideas on food and drug policy.

    After long consultations with the black prisoners muslim association the president, after thoughtful consideration once against reiterated his decision to end the JCPA agreement and expressed his deep appreciation for their views.

    Obama embraced the 'liberal Jews' as opposed to the 'militant Jews" that Trump supports---the difference there being the liberal and militant Jews disagree only on how Israel should behave, the liberals believe in talking the Isr-Pal peace process to death whereas the militants want the US to bomb everyone in the ME so the Jews can rape and rule the region. Obama's racism and embrace of liberal Jews stems from his own belief that Blacks and Jews have both been Victims" of the White men.
    Michele is more a 'militant black' than her husband.

    Read her college thesis :

    https://www.politico.com/pdf/080222_MOPrincetonThesis_1-251.pdf

    Here's her introduction:
    “The purpose of this study is to examine various attitudes of Black Princeton alumni in their present state and as they are perceived by the alumni to have changed over time. …
    “These experiences have made it apparent to me that the path I have chosen to follow by attending Princeton will likely lead to my further integration and/or assimilation into a White cultural and social structure that will only allow me to remain on the periphery of society; never becoming a full participant. This realization has presently, made my goals to actively utilize my resources to benefit the Black community more desirable.”

    It get worse from there.

    Who would want a drag queen, transvestite as president ? Michelle aka Michael lavaughn robinson- is who “Michelle” really is. It was four years ago that the story about Michelle broke and the way they handled it was to pay no attention to it and let it die. But, many bdividuals have found out the facts that “Michelle” is really a male. Obama has been an abomination and a lie from the moment of his illegitimate conception-uncle frank is his”real” father. Obama senior is not. Why would any one want such below the lowest level feces exceusted filth like her or his husband in any office. Plus he’s a communist. Obama also is a terminal liar who never attended the colleges or universities he said he did. His “records” are sealed. Why ? Because they don’t exist. No one who was at those schools remembers that dirt bag because he never attended those schools. He’s a lie. Michelle-Michael is a lie. Joan Rivers made the accurate statement the ” she-Michelle -is a tranny”. Joan ” accidentally” died about a month later during a medical procedure . She was silenced by Obama and his ilk for speaking the truth about Barry’s tranny “wife” and Him. If anything, both Obama’s should be taken into custody and charged with high treason, tried and found guilty.

    Like her husband, Michelle is a thoroughly-reliable political marionette who will play the ‘liberal card’ to maximum effect while quashing the unions, kowtowing to Wall Street, perpetuating the wars, and ensuring that the bulk of the nation’s wealth continues to flow upwards to our glorious 1 percent overlords

    The Obamas, contrary to popular opinion, are not popular. Why would they be? What did they do for anybody. Obama with his “you didn’t build that” to a bunch of businessmen who did just that. It was Obama who didn’t build anything. They just hauled his butt up, rigged the election per Eric Schmidt’s Google-magic, and voila, 8 years of deterioration and battering of national self-respect. Does anybody outside the liberal-loony tune of the DC Metro area, or the fairy lands of the upper northwest, seriously believe Obama was anything but a ghastly traitor?
    As for Michelle, I don’t know if the gender-bending can continue indefinitely. There will be more Joan Rivers sacrificed on altar of Deep State secrecy I fear.
    And anyway, the creature, whatever sex be-it, was briefly famous before they wiped it off the net, for having been caught on camera saying, “All this for a flag” while looking distastefully at some Marines trying to get control of a flag in the wind. Sort of a metaphor for the whole 8 years.

    Michelle’s popularity makes her the overwhelming favorite to face Trump in the 2020 presidential elections, but will she? She says she’s not interested, but I’m not buying it. My guess is that she is being coached by the DNC public relations team who want to roll her out like a new box of soap suds sometime after the midterm elections.
     
    We'll see who is really riding high once the Mueller report, the OIG report, and other investigations all come out. The Demo and MSM media narrative is that The Donald will be exposed as a colluder with Russia and obstructor of justice.

    The analysis from the right is that Obama admin Intel bigwigs, HRC, and perhaps BHO himself will all be exposed as colluders with Russia and obstructors of justice.

    Michelle's 2020 prospects hang in the balance.

    Well,


    maybe it wasn't such a good idea to throw blacks under the bus on protecting their freedoms -- that the party of Lincoln -- so often referenced, lost black popular support of those set free (albeit by circumstance and not purpose) rests squarely on the shoulders of the republican party.


    Instead of importing foreign labor: isirsh, italians, czechs, poles, latinos, chinese, etc. perhaps the republicans could have ensured that they were not undercut by the same foreigners.


    Sometime ago Mr Derbishire cited a speech by GW Carver, I think, and that spells out the very behavior that gradually eroded black confidence in the "party of Lincoln." In less than fifty tears Republicans squandered millions of votes.

    General Grant, then President Grant gave up the good fight and settled for latinos as consequence -- blacks are about to get that slap in the face again by both parties. I think blacks should join in challenging all of this liberal nonsense --- but silly comments and shallow interpretation of crime stats, no better example than the war on police -- a war on police that amounted to less even 0.05% even if one attributed all the deaths at the hands of blacks -- some war.

    But let's take your scenario for what is is worth ---

    Let's say that every single prisoner is black. That's roughly 1 million. And by that number you claim that blacks are inherently inclined to criminal activity and as such will vote democratically.

    of the 41 million blacks in this country 1 million amounts to roughly 2.439024390% of that population. That means You have written off 95% of them merely because a minority are in prison. I have to tell you if someone came to me and said 4% is indicative of the whole pie and then proceeded to sell me one of theirs -- I would consider them m ore than unhinged. Because of the rhetoric that would mean that 93% should be voting republican --- the rhetoric explains your failure to appeal.

    Because in the minds of so many they have yet uncoupled slavery socialogy of blacks as defined by slave owners and a host of others. That rhetoric seeps through in nearly every word uttered and action taken -- so let's stop pretending that it's just black stupidity -- that started out in the republican camp ---

    This president was handed a golden opportunity and instead of carving out a fresh new and vibrant course as advertised he has engaged in a petty competition with the last executive over a nobel peace prize. It's bizarre. Oddly he has not dismantled the immigration policy -- no wonder why. Nevermind that aside from North Korea and and Iran he has embraced every other dynamic -- no wonder why.

    As a conservative it's a long tiresome game to listen to the bemoaning about the country's state and instead of looking :

    prayer in school
    student protests over Vietnam in which they got the issue completely backwards
    there advocacy for free love, drugs and rockn'roll
    homosexual as normative


    all major societal shifts they bemoan Brown verses the board of ed -- in which the evidence was clear the schools were not equal
    they are on about affirmative action that benefits mostly whites by large margins and white foreigners or wanna be whites
    instead of registering reality that it's large white owned corporations that undermined the economy or sent jobs overseas or want easy immigration . . .

    Instead it's all about blacks and crime -- and old worn hat. That never fit and has grown smaller now. Since it's the internal workings of all whites who instinctively embrace this form of untruth , it may gain votes and of course russians, chinese, hispanics and light skinned muslims will fall of all over themselves -- extolling the virtues of tiger mommies as if black mothers whose history n o chinese in this country could touch ---


    As a conservative who has no small issues with blacks on politics and social agendas -- the blame game just have little in the way of teeth save for it's convenience and ability to garner votes.

    But after getting the votes -- our candidate seems heck bent on slapping those who voted for him full in the face -- and the claim here is that it's black people's fault.

    Whatever works regardless how bankrupt.

    Good grief . . .

    Let’s say that every single prisoner is black. That’s roughly 1 million. And by that number you claim that blacks are inherently inclined to criminal activity and as such will vote democratically.

    This is a very interesting illustration of typical leftist/ anti-White “reasoning.” Let’s break it down, shall we?

    1. Imagine/ fantasize:
    “Let’s say that every single prisoner is black. That’s roughly 1 million.”

    2. Project, while postulating irrelevant causal connections:
    “And by that number you claim that blacks are inherently inclined to criminal activity and as such will vote democratically.”

    3. “Explain” how this combination of fantasy and projection demonstrates that the other person has obvious mental problems:

    “I have to tell you if someone came to me and said 4% is indicative of the whole pie and then proceeded to sell me one of theirs — I would consider them m ore than unhinged. ”

    4. QED

    Fascinating. Meanwhile, back in the real world:

    1. If we were to look at actual statistics, and assuming that you were actually attempting to make a semi-coherent point about “criminal activity,” that would relate to criminal records, not current incarceration. More than 22% of Black males have served a prison sentence (i.e. committed, and been caught and convicted for, a serious crime) by the time they reach their early 30s.

    http://scholar.harvard.edu/files/brucewestern/files/western_asr.pdf

    Almost 1/3 lifetime. Felons (not just current inmates) are ineligible to vote in many states. In NY, felons who are currently imprisoned or on parole are ineligible. Hence the pardons.

    2. Actually, the “claim” that Blacks have commit violent crimes at vastly higher rates that Whites is not based on this sort of vague speculation. It’s based on simple, well-known facts, such as:
    Blacks are 13% of the US population, yet commit >50% of homicides. NYC has good stats on crime by race/ ethnicity (FBI stats conflate Whites and mestizos as perpetrators, while tracking them separately as victims). What do they show?

    Blacks in NYC shoot people at at a per capita rate that is 77x the rate that Whites do. Not percent; 77x times greater.

    Blacks’ propensity to vote Democrat is a simple, well-documented fact about the real world: one that does not require speculation, fantasy, or postulated causal connections to criminal activity. Discovering this simple fact is better done by using something called a “search engine” and engaging in an activity known as “reading” than by fantasizing, by the way. Using these techniques would allow you do discover that Blacks have voted right around 90% Democrat in recent presidential elections.

    If Blacks are more likely to be felons, and more likely to vote Democrat, then allowing felons to vote will be helpful to Democrat candidates, regardless of the presence or absence of a causal relationship between the two. Correlation is all that is required.

    3. See above — read it again.

    Hope that helps to introduce you to a concept sometimes known as “empirically-based reasoning,” which often gives you better results in addressing real world problems that the alternative approach of random speculation (which you seem to prefer).

  102. good grief, get out of grade school. Nothing in my comments reflects a liberal bent. It clearly rebuts any notion that blacks vote democratic based on prison statistics and further only two states allow inmates full voting rights even after they leave prison — and those two states are not heavily populated with blacks that might remotely influence voting habits of blacks in general. As before you grab some snippet and off to the races — albeit the wrong race in the wrong track and kin the wrong horse.

    First,

    I was being generous with the prison numbers:

    http://blackdemographics.com/culture/crime/incarceration/

    http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2018/01/12/shrinking-gap-between-number-of-blacks-and-whites-in-prison/

    I think based on the actual numbers with respect to prison population — I was as I usually am — generous to the opposition. So your entire series of comments are rejected based on the evidence. And having missed the point supporting my preface.

    Second,

    having previously addressed this matter by the numbers, including the proportionality contends, I am not included to do so repeatedly. But your argument is contingent on some bizarre argument I am not making — my comment was not about crime rates and who commits more —- it’s to the more important and complex discussion as to why — you have missed the mark again — because your mind is bent on assuming I have some liberal mode to excuse crime or engaged in the ever so popular race denialism motif. Having dealt with your shallow grasp of conversation — previous by population crime comparisons in which you attempted to manipulate the scenario by contrasting two drastic communities — I think i am safe in saying, not only do you lack an ability to grasp valid comparisons, context , toy are are a manipulative, disingenuous advocate who will sloppily throw in a gaggle of info that has nothing whatsoever to do with the conversation at hand.

    Blacks vote democratic in overwhelming numbers — no kidding. That blacks vote democratic because of high prison numbers, including local jails — there’s no evidence to support it. They would vote democratic if not a single black person were in prison.

    Laughing.

    Jut goes to demonstrate that people with high IQ’s are not necessarily more effective thinkers as to the depth of comprehending the difference between what the numbers are and what they mean. The discussion on the table has nothing to do with whether or not blacks vote democratically in majority of populace numbers — no kidding. That have been since the late 1050′s some say since the 1950 with the advent of President Roosevelt during the great depression.

    The issue that you are so desperate to make as a moniker of being black as to a trait falls apart on test. Because violence as has been demonstrated repeatedly by myself on the question represents less than .4% of the black population. In other-words, 98% (being generous) of blacks are not involved in violent crimes. It’s safe to conclude that blacks are not uniquely linked to engage in criminal behavior — by virtue of being black. The hard part is not gathering the data on social phenomenon, but explicating what it means.

    I am going to examine your percentage increase differently than I might normally. I am going to keep it simple for the likes of you. Suppose I have 100 marbles. 50 black marbles and fifty blue marbles. Ten of the black marbles bounce – 20%. One morning I come in and discover that there’s an increase of 70% jumping black marbles. Seventy percent that’s a huge jump in jumping new jum ping marbles. Sure but the rate of increase is by seven. The rates on increase are used to startle shuck and stir the emotion in these issues, but on examination — may be insignificant and most likely doesn’t tell us much. But if I concluded that the reason the marbles jumped is because they were black and not blue, I would be engaged in rather superficial analysis. but those who do sp engage love those percentage increases despite how misleading they are in determining cause effect relationships.

    Our society has engaged in this level of analysis regarding blacks for more than 200 years and while it was convenient to manipulate how to view and treat blacks, it’s bankrupt in accuracy about blacks. And this despite intense efforts to make those numbers fit the polity and practice.

    One need not be a liberal to understand how this game is played out, but it does require integrity to put the numbers in a proper context. Next you’ll be telling me there’s a war on police because five more officers died this year than last and those five meant a jump of x% points to the 76 officers that were killed last year.

    i have chosen a much tougher road beyond the superficial conclusions based on static human traits that are benign. Blackness remains a benign trait. Whiteness would be a benign trait, but interestingly enough the bast amount of data across the country that was employed by whites on benign traits to limit others is on the record — spanning more than 100 years.

    None of my comments make excuse for criminal behavior. The simplest nor the shortest explanation is accurate in these scenarios – explicating human motive is very tough without direct support.

  110. Why would anyone in their right mind vote for Michelle Obama.

    Extracted from the Wikipedia page on her, this is the extent of Michelle Obama’s professional experience…

    >>>
    Following law school, she was an associate at the Chicago office of the law firm Sidley & Austin, where she first met her future husband. At the firm, she worked on marketing and intellectual property.[4] She continues to hold her law license, but as she no longer needs it for her work, it has been on a voluntary inactive status since 1993.[75][76]

    In 1991, she held public sector positions in the Chicago city government as an Assistant to the Mayor, and as Assistant Commissioner of Planning and Development. In 1993, she became Executive Director for the Chicago office of Public Allies, a non-profit organization encouraging young people to work on social issues in nonprofit groups and government agencies.[26] She worked there nearly four years and set fundraising records for the organization that still stood 12 years after she left.[20]

    In 1996, Obama served as the Associate Dean of Student Services at the University of Chicago, where she developed the University’s Community Service Center.[77] In 2002, she began working for the University of Chicago Hospitals, first as executive director for community affairs and, beginning May 2005, as Vice President for Community and External Affairs.[78]

    She continued to hold the University of Chicago Hospitals position during the primary campaign, but cut back to part-time in order to spend time with her daughters as well as work for her husband’s election;[79] she subsequently took a leave of absence from her job.[80] According to the couple’s 2006 income tax return, her salary was $273,618 from the University of Chicago Hospitals, while her husband had a salary of $157,082 from the United States Senate. The Obamas’ total income, however, was $991,296, which included $51,200 she earned as a member of the board of directors of TreeHouse Foods, and investments and royalties from his books.[81] Obama stated that she had never been happier in her life prior to working “to build Public Allies”.[82]

    Obama served as a salaried board member of TreeHouse Foods, Inc. (NYSE: THS),[83] a major Wal-Mart supplier with which she cut ties immediately after her husband made comments critical of Wal-Mart at an AFL-CIO forum in Trenton, New Jersey, on May 14, 2007.[84] She also served on the board of directors of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs.[85]

    There is absolutely nothing here that indicates Ms. Obama knows how to manage anything at all outside the legal profession for which she did nothing of great import.

    She's a bloody Democrat I guess it's simply impossible for many folks to realize the destructive, psychopathic nature of these charlatans/grifters, and it will require the destruction of the nation before you folks wake up, of course it will be too late then.

    All of the immensely over-paid jobs MO were gifted were nothing but PC "make-work" symbols.

    No Democrat is qualified to be president, as their goal is the transformation of the US into a socialist tyranny.

    Before the fall of the Berlin wall I visited several east-block countries, and I can still vividly recall the morgue-like atmosphere of the cities and the dead eyes of the inhabitants of the "workers paradise", and such morbid conditions are ALWAYS the result of the installation of scoialism, which is the end goal of the US Democrats.

    Who would want a drag queen, transvestite as president ? Michelle aka Michael lavaughn robinson- is who "Michelle" really is. It was four years ago that the story about Michelle broke and the way they handled it was to pay no attention to it and let it die. But, many bdividuals have found out the facts that "Michelle" is really a male. Obama has been an abomination and a lie from the moment of his illegitimate conception-uncle frank is his"real" father. Obama senior is not. Why would any one want such below the lowest level feces exceusted filth like her or his husband in any office. Plus he's a communist. Obama also is a terminal liar who never attended the colleges or universities he said he did. His "records" are sealed. Why ? Because they don't exist. No one who was at those schools remembers that dirt bag because he never attended those schools. He's a lie. Michelle-Michael is a lie. Joan Rivers made the accurate statement the " she-Michelle -is a tranny". Joan " accidentally" died about a month later during a medical procedure . She was silenced by Obama and his ilk for speaking the truth about Barry's tranny "wife" and Him. If anything, both Obama's should be taken into custody and charged with high treason, tried and found guilty.

    And hung from a tree until dead!!!!!

    But watch out, scrappy upstart Kamala Harris might crash the party. Most of their constituents don't know the difference between Harvard and Howard, and don't care.

    ROFL every time media tries to paint Michelle as a genius, a titan of though ))))
    What are her REAL accomplishments, besides being a product of affirmative action and self-conscious race-baiter/Black activist?

    Just a few snippets from her “Early life and education” on wiki page:

    the first time she was made more aware of her ethnicity and that despite the willingness of her classmates and teachers to want to understand her, she still felt “like a visitor on campus.” I remember being shocked,” she says, “by college students who drove BMWs. I didn’t even know parents who drove BMWs.”

    What does BMW have to do with race? Go figure … and despite classmates and teachers trying to accommodate, be nice etc she felt like a visitor. Just Black queen being Black, jealous whenever she sees successful whitey. At the heart of it is jealousy of Blacks and projection of their own racism onto Whites.

    While at Princeton, she got involved with the Third World Center, an academic and cultural group that supported minority students, running their day care center, which also included after school tutoring.

    Just replace her with “White first lady running center that supported white students, running their day care etc” and you have reincarnation of Hitler himself.
    And I have no doubts that this racist “Third World Center” ran on the dime of White students and do-gooders with plenty of White do-gooders and assistants to ‘poor and oppressed’ minorities.

    As part of her requirements for graduation, she wrote a thesis titled Princeton-Educated Blacks and the Black Community. She researched her thesis by sending a questionnaire to African-American graduates

    Gee, what an accomplishment! I wonder whether I could get accepted to Princeton, write a thesis “Princton-Educated Whites and the White Community” based on a questionnaire.
    Lacking knowledge or sufficiently high IQ to produce real scientific work affirmative action Blacks (don’t mean to offend Blacks who got their on merit) engage in the only thing they are good for – praising Blackness.

    She majored in sociology and minored in African-American studies, graduating cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in 1985.

    So, she majored in on of the easiest majors if you account difficulty and competition in the field. And, of course, minored in African-American studies.

    Robinson went on to earn her Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree from Harvard Law School in 1988. By the time she applied for Harvard Law, biographer Bond wrote, her confidence had grown; “This time around, there was no doubt in her mind that she had earned her place”. Her faculty mentor at Harvard Law was Charles Ogletree

    By that time she realized that you don’t have to be a genius to compete with Whiteys and Asians (did they have Asians back then). Race-baiting, praising Blackness, with help of affirmative action and fellow affirmative action appointees she has more than enough to succeed. No wonder that Ogletree (fellow Black professor at Harward and plagiarist) becomes her mentor.

    At Harvard she participated in demonstrations advocating the hiring of professors who were members of minorities.

    Lacking any real accomplishments of her own she calls to discriminate and hire minority professors lacking qualifications besides their skin tone. Classy!

    First you suggest MO, then you go and rule her out.

    “She is a Princeton under-grad with a Harvard Law degree. She graduated magna cum laude, top of her class.”

    MO is a barely literate affirmative action beneficiary. If they run her, I’ll go and have a gigglefest with Nancy.

    I don't think she'll run. She's too busy engaging in (and enjoying) conspicuous consumption, something she fully exploited while married to the President. Remember all the trips? Plus, from what I've observed she very thin skinned and not good in spontaneous speaking situations. They'd have to feed her answers in an ear piece like they did Dumya & probably Hillary. My money's on Tamale Harris. Much smoother in public, visually more marketably pale, a reliable 1% tool, and most importantly, deep experience running for office - something Michelle has never done.

    I am inclined to agree. She’s remarkable dim, extremely lazy with none of the superficial charm and glibness of the hubby. She couldn’t handle anything other than the uber-softball interviews from the likes of Ellen Degenerate.
