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.

Isn´t the fashion industry, the newsmedia, CableTV producers, hollywood, and everyone else of substance predominantly liberal? Ask them why they are racists and don´t promote their diverse FirstGal. 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.

140 Somali refugees settled in

Associated Press, by Tom Odula    Original Article

Fellow refugees say at least 140 Somalis have been settled in the United States after being blocked for days by President Donald Trump´s ban on travelers from seven Muslim-majority countries. The refugees spoke on condition of anonymity because of concerns about their safety. They remain at the world´s largest refugee camp, Dadaab, which hosts more than 200,000 Somalis. The group of 140 which had been vetted by U.S. authorities had been on the brink of traveling to the United States, but Trump´s ban left them in limbo at a transit camp in Kenya´s capital, Nairobi.

California Democrats made a surprise move late Friday to foil President Trump’s promise to repeal ObamaCare—by introducing a stand-alone, single-payer healthcare system in California. The Mercury News reported that two California lawmakers Friday introduced legislation to replace private insurance with a government-run health care system covering all 38 million Californians—including its undocumented residents. “We’ve reached this pivotal moment,” Sen. Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens), told the Mercury News in an interview Friday, “and I thought to myself: `Look, now more than ever is the time to talk about universal health care.’” The article went on to report that the proposal dubbed the ‘Healthy California

SAN FRANCISCO — Mark Zuckerberg says Facebook will move beyond connecting family and friends to building "social infrastructure" critical to bringing people together in a "global community." In a nearly 5,800-word letter to Facebook users published on his Facebook page, Zuckerberg laid out his vision of what kind of world he believes Facebook can help create as it pushes back against a growing tide of anti-globalization sentiment. "Progress now requires humanity coming together not just as cities or nations, but also as a global community," Zuckerberg wrote.

Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman, the firebrand Islamist cleric behind the first attempt to bring down the World Trade Center, has died in federal prison. He was 78. Abdel-Rahman, an Egyptian radical who maintained a global following even while imprisoned for more than two decades, died Saturday at Butner Federal Medical Center in North Carolina, where he was serving a life sentence, Reuters reported. Abdel-Rahman was convicted in 1995 of plotting terror attacks throughout New York City, including the World Trade Center and the United Nations.

Historians have ranked Barack Obama the 12th best president of all time, the highest rated since President Ronald Reagan, in a new C-SPAN survey released Friday. Less than a month after exiting the White House, Obama received high marks from presidential historians for his pursuit of "equal justice for all" and for his commanding "moral authority," ranking third and seventh among all former presidents in each respective category. The 44th president also cracked a top 10 ranking for his "economic management" and public persuasion. The former president´s tenure earned its lowest marks for the relationship between the presidency and Congress,

This weekend in Atlanta, theatergoers can see not only Eve Ensler’s Vagina Monologues but also The MANologues, a new performance about “toxic masculinity.” “The MANologues will explore themes such as masculinity, white male privilege, everyday sexism, war, patriarchy, socialization to gender and race, intersectionality, bystander intervention, allyship, PTSD, porn addiction, mansplaining, police brutality, and more,” according to Atlanta’s Creative Loafing. HuMAN UP, an “intersectional feminist” organization focused on gender-based violence and men, is producing the performance along with the Atlanta chapter of One Billion Rising, which was founded by the Vagina Monologues author.

A Yale student group has waged a war on the university fraternities and will use Title IX to force them into admitting women—while letting female-only sororities off the hook. Engender, a group led by students of Yale, claims it will lobby the university—citing Title IX, which prohibits discrimination based on gender, and internal Yale policies against discrimination—to issue sanctions against male-only fraternities. Will McGrew, a co-director of the organization, told Yale News that it’s a “logical next step” to approach the Yale administration “because all of these organizations fall under the purview of Yale legally, either because they are registered

Activists in Arizona are rattled over a new bill brought before the state Senate that would dish out harsher sentences for undocumented immigrants compared to U.S. citizens, according to AZfamily.com. The bill under consideration, SB1279, will also make it impossible for undocumented felons to be released early on parole. The American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona stressed in an email Monday that individuals should voice concerns to their state senators, who are not expected to vote on the new measure until next week. In the meantime, the ACLU is devoting its time to convince politicians to turn down the proposal.

John McCain is increasingly mad as hell about President Trump. And on Friday, he went after Trump — hard. During a speech at the Munich Security Conference in Germany, the Republican senator from Arizona delivered a pointed and striking point-by-point takedown of Trump´s worldview and brand of nationalism. McCain didn´t mention Trump´s name once, but he didn´t have to. And even considering the two men´s up-and-down history and the terrible things Trump has said about McCain, it was a striking display from a senior leader of a party when it comes to a president of the same party. In his speech, McCain suggested

Historians have ranked Barack Obama the 12th best president of all time, the highest rated since President Ronald Reagan, in a new C-SPAN survey released Friday. Less than a month after exiting the White House, Obama received high marks from presidential historians for his pursuit of "equal justice for all" and for his commanding "moral authority," ranking third and seventh among all former presidents in each respective category. The 44th president also cracked a top 10 ranking for his "economic management" and public persuasion. The former president´s tenure earned its lowest marks for the relationship between the presidency and Congress,

About 15 people huddled in a luxury apartment building, munching on danishes as they plotted out their plan to have California secede from the United States. "I pledge allegiance, to the flag, of an independent California," Geoff Lewis said as he stood in a glass-walled conference room adorned with California´s grizzly-bear flag and a sign reading "California is a nation, not a state." Sweaty onlookers from the gym across the hall peered in curiously. Bolstered by the election of President Donald Trump, the group, Yes California, is collecting the 585,407 signatures necessary to place a secessionist question on the 2018

Senator John McCain has emerged as one of the leading Republican voices pushing back against President Trump, and he had some tough words in response to Trump’s tweet calling the media the “enemy” of the American people. In a preview of his Meet the Press interview tomorrow, McCain told Chuck Todd that the free press is very important to American democracy. “I hate the press. I hate you especially,” he joked. “But the fact is, we need you. We need a free press.” Without a free and adversarial press, McCain said, Americans would lose their liberties and “that’s how dictators

SAN FRANCISCO — Mark Zuckerberg says Facebook will move beyond connecting family and friends to building "social infrastructure" critical to bringing people together in a "global community." In a nearly 5,800-word letter to Facebook users published on his Facebook page, Zuckerberg laid out his vision of what kind of world he believes Facebook can help create as it pushes back against a growing tide of anti-globalization sentiment. "Progress now requires humanity coming together not just as cities or nations, but also as a global community," Zuckerberg wrote. (Snip) Though the letter is long on utopian ideals, it´s short on actual details. Zuckerberg

Dr. Sebastian Gorka has a PhD, big vocabulary, huge knowledge base and even a British accent -- all the markers of an elitist establishment, if not leftist, thinker. But he seems to be in complete sync with his boss, President Trump. The BBC interviewer, with his fashionable three-day beard, open collar, and heavy ‘tude, probably was not expecting what he got when he led off his live shot interview from the White House lawn with a snarky dig at President Trump’s sanity.

WASHINGTON — Donald Trump is stuck in his own skull. He’s unreachable.“He lives inside his head, where he runs the same continuous loop of conflict with people he turns into enemies for the purposes of his psychodrama,” says Trump biographer Michael D’Antonio. Because Trump holds Thor’s hammer, with its notably short handle, we must keep trying to figure out his strange, perverse, aggrieved style of reasoning. So we’re stuck in Trump’s head with him.It’s a very cluttered place to be, a fine-tuned machine spewing a torrent of chaos, cruelty, confusion, farce and transfixing craziness. Of course, this is merely the observation of

Democrat Mega Donor Now Has The Attention Of Congress -It was only a matter of time before the actions of George Soros came under scrutiny from U.S. lawmakers. Soros, a far left-wing mega donor for the Democratic party, has caught the attention of U.S. lawmakers after allegedly meddling in European politics. From Fox News: Concerns about Soros’ involvement most recently were raised by the Hungarian prime minister, who last week lashed out at the Soros “empire” and accused it of deplying “tons of money and international heavy artillery.”……Former Macedonian PM Nikola Gruevski says Soros has a “decisive influence” on his country’s politics.
