on First Day

Breitbart, by Katherine Rodriguez

Original Article

Posted By:tisHimself, 11/18/2018 6:16:18 AM

Former first lady Michelle Obama’s memoir, Becoming, sold 725,000 copies on its first day on the market, making it the biggest opening for a book in 2018 under publishing company Penguin Random House. The figures include preorder and first-day sales of hardcover, audio, and ebook editions of the memoir sold in the U.S. and Canada, the Associated Press reported. The first-day sales for Becoming surpassed former first lady Hillary Clinton’s presidential memoir, Living History, which only sold 600,000 copies in its first week.

Must be because her immortal beauty so outshines that of the current First Lady, who can´t even get on a magazine cover. Or maybe it´s Liar Of The Years´s wife´s proud pride in her country, which never did anything good except making her First Lady....?

I checked it out at Amazon. Just released on November 13th and there are 140 reviews, rated 4.6 stars. I have my doubts that all the 5 star reviews posted yesterday are genuine.

Money laundering, Democrat style. Yes, #2, certainly the DNC, a few unions,& some odd coalition of Leftist/black churches laundered some money using those books. And let us not forget the $$$7 million ´advance´ for Barry from the publishers! Somebody else paid for that. No publisher in his right mind would put up that kind of money w/o some sort of angle. How many books did Hillary sell? Of course Mich is liked better than Hil - maybe not after this book.

So her book is about the tough times she had growing up. I am noticing here in the United States, pity equates to money. It has become an art form to hold out your cup. And for the Obamas, they can never have enough.

Michelle Obama says, "she can never forgive Donald Trump. . ." I believe her because it gives me a clue into their faith life. The glory goes to the Obamas not God.

How the left inflates (launders) book sales:

- A left leaning book publisher advances the ´author´ several million USD.

- The ´author´ (AKA ghostwriter) write a few hundred pages of inane tripe and submits it.

- The publisher produces a run of the book.

- Leftist organizations buy, pre-order, etc thousands of copies and pays for it all. This insures that the publisher is reimbursed for their part in the scheme.

- Most of the above purchases are delivered to an almost condemned warehouse probably owned by one of the aforementioned leftist
organizations.

- Several months after the book release, an unexplained warehouse fire occurs and the building and it´s contents are completely destroyed. The insurance company covers the loss. This reimburses the leftist organization who made the original bulk book purchase.

- Soon after the fire, the insurance company increases it´s premiums. This spreads the covered loss among the new and existing customers of the insurance company, essentially covering the original advance to the ´author´. This reimburses the insurance company for their part of the scheme.

- So the eventual losers are the customers of the insurance company who are unwittingly paying for Mrs. Halfrican´s book ... whether they want to or not.

Democrats are Communists who hate the Lord and are not above using His name to fool those who try to be faithful to the Lord.

Satan must have over 75% of Americans following his leadership into the eternal flames of the abyss.

Beware of false brethren, and unbelievers, amidst you whose heart does not serve the Lord.

Jeremiah 17

5 Thus saith the Lord; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord.

9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

10 I the Lord search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.

I would suspect Michelle Obama dictated to a writer her memoirs but you just don´t get the feel of an angry America hating black woman just reading about it.
Here´s how those ´book deals´ work for democrats who are personally boring and self absorbed.
The publisher shells out the money for the deal then buys the first million or two million copies then warehouses them. People get to see the covers and some are stupid enough to read them, exposure. I don´t believe blacks sit and read books any books maybe some radical old Huey Newton H.Rap Brown militant rantings but that´s about it if they know how to read at all.
The few times I heard audio of Barack Obama´s book I liked it because I knew that was fiction sorta like Harry Potter.

If you get the lion’s share of your news from America’s prestige media outlets, you’d be forgiven for thinking that the principal religious-freedom issue in America is whether a few Christian business owners can discriminate against their gay customers. Whether the controversy is a media-created fiction (think of Indiana’s Memories Pizza — a store that never denied anyone service) or an actual court case, like Masterpiece Cakeshop, the narrative is the same. The battle over “religious liberty” — yes, the scare quotes are often all too real — is the battle over the right

Donald Trump in 2016 did not only run against the planted rumors of the fake Steele dossier, 90 percent negative media coverage, his own boisterous past, and the “Access Hollywood” tape. He also was campaigning against Hillary Clinton—and the nation’s quarter-century weariness with the Clinton scandals, crimes, money-grubbing, and hypocrisies. For a quarter of the country, independents especially, a vote for Trump was not a referendum on a Democrat or Republican, or even love or hate for Donald Trump, but rather reflected a “Never Hillary” desire to be done with the very name Clinton.

Strangers identified a Covington Catholic senior´s dream and mobilized to dismantle it. Michael Hodge had applied to Cincinnati State, drawn to the school´s culinary arts program. A mob, angered by videos showing Hodge´s classmates chanting around a group of Native Americans on the National Mall, found a scapegoat in Hodge. "It was crazy to see all the people, you know, so quick to judge," Hodge, 18, told the USA TODAY Network. Hodge was 500 miles away when his classmates joined the March for Life event and afterward encountered Native Americans and a reported hate group.

Vatican ex-doctrine chief
pens manifesto amid pope criticism
A P, by Nicole Winfield    Original Article

The Vatican´s former doctrine chief has penned a "manifesto of faith" to remind Catholics of basic tenets of belief amid what he says is "growing confusion" in the church today. Cardinal Gerhard Mueller didn´t name Pope Francis in his four-page manifesto, released late Friday. But the document was nevertheless a clear manifestation of conservative criticism of Francis´ emphasis on mercy and accompaniment versus a focus on repeating Catholic morals and doctrine during the previous two papacies. Mueller wrote that a pastor´s failure to teach Catholic truths was the greatest deception - "It is the fraud of the anti-Christ."

Former U.S. cardinal Theodore McCarrick, 88, will learn his fate next week when Pope Francis is expected to decide whether he should be kicked out of the priesthood for decades of clerical sex abuse, according to Reuters citing unnamed Vatican sources. Last July, McCarrick was stripped of his title of cardinal over allegations that he sexually abused a 16-year-old boy in a church confessional. He was the first high-ranking Catholic prelate to be stripped of the title in 100 years. Allegations against McCarrick, who is currently living out his life in prayer in a friary in Kansas, go back decades.

Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah is putting his political muscle to work for Republican colleagues on Capitol Hill, launching a new vehicle for high-dollar fundraising and planning to headline events around the country in the months ahead. Romney, the GOP presidential nominee in 2012 and among the party’s most prolific fundraisers, has formed “Team Mitt,” a joint fundraising committee with the National Republican Senatorial Committee. This weekend, the senator is traveling to Florida to mingle with Republican donors attending an annual NRSC finance retreat, the first of several trips planned to help protect the party’s Senate majority in 2020.

There is a lesson from scandal of moonwalking Gov. Ralph Northam (D-Va.) being photographed in either in a KKK hood and sheet or blackface in his medical school yearbook. In 2017 Northam decisively defeated Ed Gillespie for governor 54 to 45. (As an aside, Bill Kristol backed Northam.) In that race, the Democrats played the race card for all it was worth, while Gillespie was as hapless as a deer in the headlights. This should not be a surprise. Democrats do what Democrats do -- play to win at any cost.

Responding to the president’s announcement that he will declare a national emergency related to the U.S. southern border, Pelosi maintained that “Democratic presidents can declare emergencies as well. So the precedent that the president is setting here is something that should be met with great unease and dismay by the Republicans.” (Photos) Speaker Pelosi told reporters at her weekly press conference, “You want to talk about a national

On Wednesday, May 10, 2017, my first full day on the job as acting director of the FBI, I sat down with senior staff involved in the Russia case—the investigation into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. As the meeting began, my secretary relayed a message that the White House was calling. The president himself was on the line. I had spoken with him the night before, in the Oval Office, when he told me he had fired James Comey. A call like this was highly unusual. Presidents do not, typically, call FBI directors.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Thursday celebrated Amazon´s decision to cancel its plans to build a second headquarters in New York City. "Today was the day a group of dedicated, everyday New Yorkers & their neighbors defeated Amazon’s corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world," Ocasio-Cortez, one of the deal´s staunchest critics, wrote. (Tweet) Her statement came shortly after Amazon in a blog post announced that it was canceling its plan to build offices, dubbed "HQ2," in Queens, citing pushback from "a number of state and local politicians."

President Donald Trump demanded Wednesday evening that the State of California return $3.5 billion in federal funds after Gov. Gavin Newsom canceled most of the state’s high-speed rail project, saying it was too expensive. “California has been forced to cancel the massive bullet train project after having spent and wasted many billions of dollars,” the president tweeted. “They owe the Federal Government three and a half billion dollars. We want that money back now. Whole project is a “green” disaster!”

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld launched a presidential exploratory committee in New Hampshire Friday, making him the first Republican officially eying a longshot GOP primary challenge to President Donald Trump. “I’m here because I think our country is in grave peril,” Weld said at an announcement at a “Politics and Eggs” breakfast in New Hampshire, a frequent stop for presidential candidates. “I cannot sit quietly on the sidelines any longer.” "We cannot sit passively as our precious democracy slips quietly into darkness," he said. Weld, who served as governor in the Bay State from 1991 to 1997, was the Libertarian Party

WASHINGTON— What is happening to the Democrats? Captivated by a handful of liberal superstars, they are venturing where the party has long feared to tread: Steep taxes on the rich. Abolishing an immigration enforcement agency. Proposing "economic transformation" to combat climate change. Gleefully waving goodbye to a big business — and its jobs. On Thursday, newly-elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez led a chorus of cheers as Amazon announced it was abandoning plans to build a sought-after headquarters in New York City. Activists berated the online giant for a $3 billion package of tax breaks she said the city could better invest

The two hottest commodities in the Democratic Party are Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Earlier this week, Omar exhibited stunning ignorance in her hostile questioning of Elliott Adams Abrams. Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez has often displayed a surprising lack of knowledge for someone who apparently is a college graduate. Don’t get me started on the “Green New Socialism.” But she outdid herself yesterday. The context was Amazon’s announcement that it would not, after all, build a second corporate headquarters in Long Island City, which I understand is close to, but not within, Ocasio-Cortez’s district. The project reportedly would have entailed

Washington — Millions of Americans are waiting for Robert Mueller to give them the final word on whether the Trump campaign conspired with the 2016 Russian election interference effort — and whether their president is under the influence of a foreign adversary. Millions of Americans may be sorely disappointed. Unless Mueller files a detailed indictment charging members of the Trump campaign with conspiring with Russia, the public may never learn the full scope of what Mueller and his team has found — including potentially scandalous behavior that doesn´t amount to a provable crime.

Andrew McCabe is a national disgrace. He was part of the most corrupt and most partisan leadership team in FBI history and was fired for being dishonest under oath. And yet, America owes him a big thank-you. McCabe, you see, has reminded us once again that there really is a powerful deep state, and that there has not been a full accounting of rampant FBI misconduct during the presidential campaign of 2016. There is also still too much we don’t know about the role top aides to then-President Barack Obama and higher-ups in the Justice Department

Move over, Speaker Pelosi, and make room for New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill deBlasio as Democrats waking up to the disaster the rise of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is inflicting on the Democratic Party. She is no longer just a potential threat to their schemes and operating principles, she has taken a wrecking ball to them. Trust me: they desperately want to be rid of her but, due to her media presence and popularity with the young and ignorant, cannot visibly stick the shiv in her back.
