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

- 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.

On Jan. 3, 2019, current House Speaker Paul Ryan gets to retire at the ripe old age of 48, but don´t worry -- we won´t be done with him at that point. He has many years of lobbying for six or seven figure salaries ahead of him until he is inevitably recycled by the GOP establishment to do what he does best: undermine and sabotage the ´America First´ agenda of President Donald Trump. Ryan has done such a poor job that it has become impossible for even the paid sycophants of Conservativism Inc. to whitewash his record.

In recognition of the brave and altruistic Americans who risk their health and safety for the greater good, Pentagon officials announced Thursday that the U.S. military would honor the sacrifices of NFL players by wearing their jerseys throughout December. “Every week, these men are out there on the gridiron, putting their bodies on the line for our country. Having our soldiers wear these jerseys and caps is the least we can do to show our support,” said Pentagon spokesperson Robert D’Amato, who announced that all active-duty soldiers would be sporting gear from all 32 teams to raise awareness

Biden/Romney 2020: It could happen

With his instant name recognition, early-bird polls consistently place former Vice President Joseph R. Biden as the top Democratic contender for president in 2020. Now comes a call for Mr. Biden to go rogue — or at least independent. “Biden should run on a unity ticket with Mitt Romney. It could totally work,” writes Juleanna Glover — who worked as an adviser to former President George W. Bush, former Vice President Dick Cheney, the late Sen. John McCain, and former presidential hopefuls Jeb Bush and Rudy Giuliani — and now serves on the Biden Institute Policy Advisory Board.

The winds of scandal whipping around the Church’s gay pederasty problem are not dissipating but picking up speed. This is foiling the devious plans of Pope Francis, who deliberately scheduled his “abuse summit” six months out in the hopes that few would care about it by then.

In 1975, Christopher Tolkien left his fellowship at New College, Oxford, to edit his late father’s massive legendarium. The prospect was daunting. The 50-year-old medievalist found himself confronted with 70 boxes of unpublished work. Thousands of pages of notes and fragments and poems, some dating back more than six decades, were stuffed haphazardly into the boxes. Handwritten texts were hurriedly scrawled in pencil and annotated with a jumble of notes and corrections. One early story was drafted in a high school exercise book. A large portion of the archive concerned the history of J.R.R. Tolkien’s fictional world, Middle-earth.

Mitt Romney, who becomes a U.S. Sen. in January, has signaled he will be a thorn in President Trump´s side by slamming his reaction to Saudi Arabia´s role in the murder of dissident Jamal Khashoggi. Incoming Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, condemned Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s restrained response to Khashoggi´s brutal killing in Istanbul last month, calling the lack of punishment for Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman “inconsistent” with “American greatness.”

It has been speculated that Mitt Romney’s Utah Senate seat could serve as a prelude to another Presidential run. In the most ambitious version of events, he could even challenge Donald Trump in the 2020 primaries, newly legitimized and augmented by his actions in the Capitol Building. This would allow moderate Republicans to reclaim their party’s mantle and unroot alt-right influences. But would Romney do it? His willingness to unequivocally challenge Trump could be seen either as a pro or con by Republicans, depending on their opinions of the sitting president.

NeverTrump Republicans have been rabidly obsessed since 2015 to prevent Donald Trump’s nomination, election, and having failed, to join the left in nonstop criticism and condemnation of President Trump. They may be succeeding, but to what end? As they look around at the current political landscape, are they truly happy with the direction of the country? Or is that irrelevant, as long as they can strut around on their high horse, feeling smug, telling each other “I told you so”? The NeverTrump movement began shortly after Trump announced his candidacy for the presidency. So-called “principled Republicans” were incensed

The instructions were included in guidelines published by the local council earlier this month on ‘Taking a Period Positive Approach in Brighton & Hove Schools’, which assert there is “more work to do across all settings to prevent and reduce stigma related to periods and talking about periods”.

A South Carolina pastor defended buying his wife a $200,000 Lamborghini Urus as an eighth wedding anniversary present after coming under fire for the purchase. Pastor John Gray, the leader of Relentless Church in Greenville, S.C., came under fire for presenting his wife, Aventer, with the expensive vehicle. A video that went viral, which has since been deleted, showed the pastor surprising his wife with the keys to the luxury vehicle last week, the Charlotte Observer reported. The pastor was criticized by social media users questioning how he could afford the car.

US Rep.-elect Rashida Tlaib will be sworn into office next month while wearing a traditional Palestinian gown. The Michigan Democrat announced on social media Friday that she intends to wear a thobe to the ceremony.

While the job of a Green Beret entails eliminating U.S. enemies both here and abroad, one member of the 66-year-old special operations force is now being prosecuted for having done exactly that. According to reports, once-decorated Army Maj. Mathew L. Golsteyn has been charged in the premeditated murder of an Afghani bomb maker suspected of murdering two Marines. The charge stems from actions the former Green Beret took on the field while deployed eight years ago and words he spoke with Fox News host Bret Baier six years afterward.

To see the Clintons on the first night of their new tour, you had to pass under a row of giant Canadian flags. On the second night, everyone spoke French on the way out. Live Nation promises 10 upcoming performances by the Clintons next spring, and if the first two nights mean anything, this will be a tour on which nothing is quite right — a weird blend of darkness and nostalgia, of out-of-place things. Imagine watching the Clintons play a chipper, Newlywed Game–style quiz about their marriage

Going all in on attacking President Trump isn’t proving to be a particularly effective business strategy for media outlets. The Weekly Standard, a 28-year old neoconservative institution, is reportedly headed towards dissolution after its founder, Bill Kristol, devoted almost three years of work to attacking the President and his supporters. It’s not just Kristol. The entire world of clickbait Trump-hate seems to be in jeopardy, including sites that cater to the liberal base. The same week that The Weekly Standard’s troubles broke, Vanity Fair dropped a bombshell report about the struggles faced by those hip, millennial-targeted left-wing rags

President Donald Trump has bashed one of the loudest neoconservative ´Never Trumpers´, Bill Kristol, seizing on news that Kristol´s anti-Trump Weekly Standard magazine is folding. ´The pathetic and dishonest Weekly Standard, run by failed prognosticator Bill Kristol (who, like many others, never had a clue), is flat broke and out of business. Too bad. May it rest in peace!´ Trump tweeted on Saturday morning. It follows an announcement on Friday that the Weekly Standard, which Kristol co-founded in 1995, will be ceasing publication. Kristol, an avid Twitter user, responded to Trump´s tweet simply: ´@ me next time´. (Tweet/Photos) Trump´s attack

MSNBC host Joy Reid and her guest Elie Mystal spent a segment fantasizing about Ivanka Trump being in the “crosshairs” and openly scheming about how the best way to “get” President Donald Trump would be to go after his children. The sinister conversation, in which they urged the left to put the mother and wife “in their crosshairs” occurred on Saturday’s show. “This is the first time that we have Ivanka . . . in the crosshairs . . . The only way we’re really going to get to Trump is if you go after his kids . . .

Have you gotten your flu shot this year? If the answer is no - and I´m not getting one! - you´re not alone. A new study finds more than 40 percent of Americans have not been vaccinated and, in fact, don´t plan on it either. This is despite the warnings, potential dangers, and last year´s record-number of flu deaths. The survey was done by the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago. People under the age of 45 were the least likely to report being vaccinated.

The Weekly Standard will be no more. There is no real reason we are witnessing the magazine’s demise other than deep pettiness and a personal desire for bureaucratic revenge on the part of a penny-ante Machiavellian who works for its parent company. There would at least be a larger meaning to the Standard’s end if it were being killed because it was hostile to Donald Trump. But I do not believe that is the case.
