Book: Michelle Obama
´invisible´ because she´s black

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/9/2017 10:36:50 AM

She is among the most famous and easily recognized women in the world, but first lady Michelle Obama feels "invisible" when she steps off her official stage, according to her best friend and ally in the White House. And the reason is a remarkable one considering that she and her husband, President Obama, are America´s first African-American presidential couple. According to top adviser Valerie Jarrett, Obama is invisible because she is black. In her new book about the importance of black mothers in America and how they walk a tightrope in society, White House correspondent April Ryan revealed that Jarrett

Comments:
Blood pressure spike alert!! This is enough to make you go insane!! She and her vile husband have been more visible and recognized than any couple in history and she has the audacity to make such an outrageous, racist statement. To make reference to that staged Target appearance by Mooch makes it even worse. These people are really sick and frightening because they are so consumed by their racism. With all that they have been given it is absolutely stunning to behold.

She´s invisible because her giant fat rear end and boob belts block out the light from the Sun.

I tend to ignore racist bigots myself.

Maybe that´s why she feels invisible, when she gets out amongst us deplorable...

FTA: "In her new book about the importance of black mothers..."

Excuse me, Michelle, but there doesn´t seem to be any shortage of "black mothers," especially in our dysfunctional inner cities. Quite the opposite in fact, and starting at an early age.

"Black fathers," on the other hand...

I think ´´irrelevant´´ is a better description than invisible. Apparently, she is a legend in her own mind! Her husband´s coat tails are mighty short!

No. It has nothing to do with her being black.

No one elected her. She is Obie’s wife. She wanted more. It just wasn’t there. She helped her irrelevance along by trying to be a rock star-dancer-performer-actress-pitchwoman-fashion model. Arbiter on everything. And she crowded into our lives with school lunches and other regulatory issues that we have resented. Constantly trying to be in our face, while we have done everything in our power to ignore her.

We don’t like her. We don’t respect her. We just wish she’d go away.

She´s so ashamed of the US before the Preezy´s 8 years, is she proud now? If not, with all the RICHES they are going to make - at least $100 million (before tax) this year, why don´t the move to Europe or Middle East or Africa or Asia - wherever they feel comfortably and beloved....

If I remember correctly, Hillary and Huma went into a fast food restaurant and were not recognized. Michelle made sure she was not recognized by putting on a hat and kept her head down. She did not want to be recognized. The only time we see her is when she is wearing designer clothes with hair and makeup done by professionals. It has nothing to do with race. Get over your race and gender. Get out there and make a real difference in people´s lives. Then, people will notice you and remember you. Come to think of it, why don´t I believe she and Valerie took walks in public places?

If Michelle Obama and Valerie Jarrett were recognized but "ignored" while taking their walks, they were most likely avoided. White Americans are already very aware that she hates and despises them. No one wants any more of the race trouble that her husband has fomented these last 8 years.

On the other hand, if they were "ignored" by African-Americans they encountered, they were most likely not recognized. Many people also wisely mind their own business in this day and age as well. One last thought: the Secret Service would have certainly been near and in force on these purported walks. This would certainly dissuade many people from even approaching. Things do seem quite ´off´ with the basic premise of this story.

Hate to break it to you Michelle, but we´re ALL mostly invisible. Most of us move through life noticed only by close family and friends. Sure, some have a bigger stage, more lights and some will do supremely stupid tricks to get our 15 minutes of fame. But by and large - it´s hard to stand out in the crowd of 7 Billion other people in the world. Even for well recognized black women. That you are the first lady of the United States, full of unearned power and recognized by dang near EVERYone, and still bishing about it - says more about you and a narcissistic need for applause says more about you than those around you.

Republican congressional investigators expect a potential “smoking gun” establishing that the Obama administration spied on the Trump transition team, and possibly the president-elect himself, will be produced to the House Intelligence Committee this week, a source told Fox News. Classified intelligence showing incidental collection of Trump team communications, purportedly seen by committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and described by him in vague terms at a bombshell Wednesday afternoon news conference, came from multiple sources, Capitol Hill sources told Fox News. The intelligence corroborated information about surveillance of the Trump team that was known to Nunes, sources said, even before President

Open door immigration policies put in place by the Obama administration were cited a cause for the alleged rape of a 14-year-old student inside Maryland high school by two illegals, according to the head of the Border Patrol union. Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, cited the former administration´s "catch and release" program for letting the two illegals charged in the rape into the United States. In Senate testimony, he said, "Had we done our job that 14-year-old girl would never have been raped. Period. That´s all there is to it." Two illegal immigrants have been charged

Trump presidential transition officials had their communications monitored and “unmasked” by the intelligence community, the chairman of the House intelligence committee said Wednesday, offering the first major piece of evidence of possible illegal activity by Obama officials against Donald Trump as president-elect. Rep. Devin Nunes, California Republican, said Mr. Trump’s own communications might have been monitored. All of the information appears to have been scooped up legally and incidentally, meaning the Trump officials weren’t the targets. They may have been gathered by foreign intelligence and then shared with the U.S. under existing agreements, one lawmaker said. But at some point

Peter King: Trump Surveillance Report

Congressman Peter King (R-N.Y.) called the revelation that President Trump´s transition team was identified during incidental surveillance activity "extremely significant." King said the fact that Trump´s name appeared in the reports obtained by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) was one of a few violations that were committed. Trump nor his associates were being wiretapped, King said. Instead the surveillance focused on foreign individuals who referenced them. "Any time your [American´s] name comes up, it´s supposed to be masked. Reports were written with names of these people and details," King said, adding that the information was then spread around

Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, said on Wednesday that the Senate parliamentarian has told him that it may be possible for Republicans to push harder on repealing Obamacare´s regulations than the current House bill, which contradicts the assertion by House leadership that the legislation goes after Obamacare as aggressively as possible under Senate rules. "What I understood her to be saying is that there´s no reason why an Obamacare repeal bill necessarily could not have provisions repealing the health insurance regulations," Lee said in an interview with the Washington Examiner, relating a conversation with parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough about reconciliation he had on

In a last-minute bid to woo conservatives ahead of a high-stakes vote on Thursday on repealing and replacing Obamacare, House leaders are considering gutting more Obamacare regulations. (Snip) Previously, House leaders have argued that the regulations could not be nixed, because doing so would blow up the bill in the Senate, where Republicans will have to pass the measure under restrictive rules to enable it to clear with a simple majority. But a House leadership aide told the Washington Examiner that on Wednesday, Republicans received new information from the Senate, indicating that axing the regulations wouldn´t automatically doom the bill from

No, Sebastian Gorka is not a goose-stepping Nazi. (Snip) The personal attacks aimed at Gorka and Michael Anton, both key national-security aides to President Trump, aren’t the only false stories in the left’s smear campaign against these two. They have been painted in outlets like the New York Times, the Washington Post, Foreign Policy, Politico and the Atlantic as Islamophobic hardliners hellbent on dragging us into more Mideast wars. But that bears little resemblance to their writing, which the Trump haters haven’t bothered to explore in any depth.

House Republican leaders abruptly pulled a Republican rewrite of the nation’s health-care system from consideration on Friday, a dramatic acknowledgment that they are so far unable to repeal the Affordable Care Act. “We just pulled it,” President Trump told The Washington Post in a telephone interview. The decision came a day after President Trump delivered an ultimatum to lawmakers — and represented multiple failures for the new president and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.). The decision means the Affordable Care Act remains in place, at least for now, and a major GOP campaign promise goes unfulfilled. It also casts

A group of Senate Democrats is beginning to explore trying to extract concessions from Republicans in return for allowing Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch to be confirmed, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter. The lawmakers worry that Gorsuch could be confirmed whether Democrats try to block him or not — and Democrats would be left with nothing to show for it. That would be a bitter pill after the GOP blocked Merrick Garland for nearly a year. The deal Democrats would be most likely to pursue, the sources said, would be to allow confirmation of Gorsuch in exchange for a

Democrats plan to filibuster Neil Gorsuch’s nomination for the Supreme Court, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-New York) said Thursday. Speaking on the Senate floor Thursday morning, Schumer said Gorsuch -- who is three days into his confirmation hearings with the Senate Judiciary Committee -- will need 60 votes to be confirmed. Currently, the Senate has 52 Republicans and 48 Democrats. “After careful deliberation, I have concluded that I cannot support judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court,” he said. “His nomination will have a cloture vote. He will have to earn 60 votes for confirmation. My vote will

In the last three months of the Obama presidency, significant personal information from and about the Trump transition was collected and widely disseminated at intelligence agencies, according to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes. Dozens of intelligence reports provided to Nunes by an unnamed whistleblower were floating around during the sensitive transition period following the election, he said. The information collection itself may have technically been legal, but the failure to properly mask the information “alarmed” the California congressman, who notified the White House of the surveillance and dissemination of information on Wednesday afternoon. Many of the reporters present didn’t seem to

British Lawmaker Lord Digby Jones does not believe the religion of the London attacker is pertinent, The Washington Post reports. Jones comments come in the wake of a tweet by Donald Trump Jr. criticizing London Mayor Sadiq Khan for once telling citizens that terrorist attacks are “part and parcel” part of living in a big city. Some British lawmakers drew offense from the tweet, saying Trump was attacking the mayor in the midst of a terrorist situation. “You’re safer in London than you’ve ever been,” Jones declared. He continued, “If this turns out to be an act of Islamic terrorism,

Last night on his eponymous Fox News program, Tucker Carlson interviewed David Moyse, an attorney hired to defend 18 year-old Henry Sanchez-Milian, who is in this country illegally, against a charge of rape against a 14 year old girl in a bathroom at a Rockville, MD, high school. Moyse is one of those youngish (in his 30s) lawyers who gets himself on lists of up-and-comers, like this one, and is a name partner in a criminal defense firm.In going on TV to make the case for his client, Counselor Moyse found himself being cross-examined and saying something he soon had

President Trump is facing the first crucial test of his presidency — repealing and replacing Obamacare — and he needs to apply the negotiating chops and deal-making skills he bragged about in his bestselling book, “The Art of the Deal,” to fixing our broken health-care system. And given his low approval ratings, he needs a win. Dealing with the Obamacare mess has been the core focus of the Republican party for the past 7 years — not to mention a major campaign promise that helped propel Donald Trump to the White House. So it’s imperative that the president seal the deal and

Alphonse Maddin worked as a truck driver for TransAm Trucking. Like a lot of Americans, he did the kind of hard work that puts food on the table, and pays the bills and the taxes. The work that people like Maddin do every day may not receive lots of media attention, but our economy will not function without it. Such workers do not ask for a lot in return, just to be treated fairly and with dignity under our laws. Unfortunately, even that modest expectation has too often gone unfulfilled in recent years. The Supreme Court has increasingly come down

(Video)Maryland’s governor said Friday he cannot promise parents of children in Montgomery County schools, where a freshman high school student was allegedly raped by two older teenagers, that their children will be safe. Republican Gov. Larry Hogan’s remarks came as the assault last Thursday by two immigrants, at least one of whom is in the U.S. illegally, has become a flashpoint for parents worried that the county’s “sanctuary” status for illegal immigrants exposes their school children to danger.“I’m not sure I can give assurances that their children will be safe,” he said. What he did give assurances about, however, was that he
