For as much as Michelle Obama loves the spotlight and maintaining attention on her as to not be forgotten, she’s seems to have gone into hiding in recent months. Campaigning for the midterms is well underway and she promised to be a part of it but is nowhere to be seen.
While her absence is certainly welcome, many of us had eight years too much of Michelle, it apparently short lived. She’s back and different than ever dropping her title as First Lady and unveiling the real “her” on a new tour she’s about to embark on. The name of her big new adventure? Well, it’s making things feel all the more odd.
Get ready for Michelle’s big new debut!
In advance of the upcoming release of “her” suspiciously titled memoir, “Becoming,” former first “lady” Michelle Obama announced this week that she intends to embark on an “#IAmBecoming” tour starting Nov. 13.
“I’m done with my book! I’ve learned a lot about myself and I’d like to share my story of BECOMING—the plainness, the blemishes, the crazy turns—with you on my book tour, beginning 11/13 in Chicago,” she tweeted Wednesday.
What did she mean by “crazy turns?” Are we to expect her to actually tell the honest, raw, truth about herself or will it be more self-obsessed Michelle melodrama to cash in on. The reality is, Michelle is probably not going to expose any of her secrets or true feelings on anything but her hate for the Trumps paired with anything she can come up with to make herself look good.
She just set the title for her memoir as Becoming. Becoming what? A woman? Maybe this secret is too much for her to bear.
“I am proud of what I have created. I’m proud because it is candid, it’s honest, it’s totally and utterly me. I’m also a little frightened because it is so candid and honest and open,” she added in the strange video.
After serving as the first lady for eight years, you’d think Americans would already know everything about her. What’s there to be scared of?

It remains unclear what exactly she created. I’m partially inclined to want to know what she could possibly come up with the fill her arrogant soul and attribute an actual creation to herself of such magnitude that it’s life-altering to all. My curiosity just isn’t enough to spend a single cent on her book at the probable risk of being let down by some self-indulgent claim she’s contrived.
It will likely be something to the tune of empowering women to be brave and bold like her and referring to herself as a world changer. Now, if she were to really be “candid, honest, totally and utterly me,” as she claims, then she would answer some of our most burning questions about her personally. I think we all have a couple, or at least one …about her appearance…in mind.
It’s doubtful that’ll ever happen. This book is all about the bucks she can make on it, even if it means tricking people into reading and leaving them feeling let down.
LifeZette has more on this really confusing debut Michelle’s promising:
Michelle Obama announced a 10-city speaking tour to dovetail with the release of her upcoming memoir, “Becoming,” in an Instagram post on Wednesday.
The post, hashtagged “#IAmBecoming,” has since been viewed nearly 2 million times on Instagram.
The accompanying video, also released on Twitter, boasts over a million views in less than a day.
“It’s the story of my humdrum plainness, my tiny victories, my lasting bruises, my ordinary hopes and worries. It’s the story of who I am, truly, and I’m proud of it — blemishes and all,” said Obama in the post describing the book.
In the Instagram video, which was filmed in her office, she also mentioned that she is “a little frightened” about the book because it is “so candid and honest and open.”
“Becoming,” published by Penguin Random House, is described on the website devoted to the book and the tour: “Warm, wise and revelatory, ‘Becoming’ is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations — and whose story inspires us to do the same.”
The “stadium-sized,” 10-city tour will kick off in Chicago at the United Center, on the day her book is released — November 13, as the Chicago Tribune reported.
Early supporters of the book tour included U.S. House candidate Robin Kelly of Illinois and Olympic gold and silver medalist Diane Dixon, who both tweeted Thursday morning, appending the #IAmBecoming hashtag.
Use of the hashtag on Twitter was exceptionally limited, however.
Among the 11 verified (“blue check”) Twitter users who had used the hashtag as of about noon Eastern time on Thursday, one was from Obama herself, two were from her publisher, one was from an organization Obama selected to promote the book — and another was from Ticketmaster.
The news about Michelle Obama comes nearly at the same time as news about former Vice President Joe Biden: He’s getting his own Instagram program to help drive voters to the polls this fall in the 2018 midterm elections.

New York Times Editor: We’re Switching From Russia Collusion To ‘Trump Is Racist’
The New York Times and others have repeatedly tried to take down President Trump with libelous statements on the Russian collusion front and have failed spectacularly every single time. Now, New York Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet has accidentally admitted that for two years his far-left newspaper was “built” around spreading a hoax. Oops. But it’s never too late to shift propaganda in this political war.
He was secretly recorded saying just that and it got out. Baquet also admitted the Times’ staff is loaded with left-wingers “who cheer us when we take on Donald Trump, but they jeer at us when we take on Joe Biden.” Do tell. I’m shocked I tell you. Simply shocked.
What is actually shocking is this recording comes by way of the leftist rag, Slate. They got their mitts on the recording of a company-wide meeting Baquet held with his staffers and it is an illuminating look at how leftist media utilizes and manipulates propaganda for political effect. Why Slate would let that out is puzzling, to say the least.
Baquet has now admitted that for two long years his leftist newspaper was “built” around the Russia Collusion Hoax: “It got trickier after [inaudible] … went from being a story about whether the Trump campaign had colluded with Russia and obstruction of justice to being a more head-on story about the president’s character. We built our newsroom to cover one story, and we did it truly well.”
Truly well? Do you mean by lying and falsifying facts? They did that very well. There was not a shred of evidence that Trump colluded with Russia yet the NYT reported on it as fact for two years and in actuality, made stuff up to fit that narrative.
So the NY Times (D-NY) is back to hosting political strategy sessions on how to destroy @realDonaldTrump. Collusion failed. Obstruction came up short. Now they’ve returned to the favorite cry of every liberal who’s losing an argument: RACISM! A sad commentary on “news” in America https://t.co/en4Y8nQCOa

But the New York Times has seen the light, so to speak. The Russia collusion hoax hasn’t worked so now they are switching tactics… Trump is now a racist and everything will revolve around that lie: “Now we have to regroup, and shift resources and emphasis to take on a different story. I’d love your help with that. As Audra Burch said when I talked to her this weekend, this one is a story about what it means to be an American in 2019. It is a story that requires deep investigation into people who peddle hatred[.]”
The truth is that if Trump were actually a racist it would have come out decades ago. This is a last-ditch effort to besmirch a sitting president so a communist can take his place in the next election. It’s subversion and in my book… a form of treason.
You can still taste the salty leftist tears from being disappointed that Mueller did not take down Trump: “The day Bob Mueller walked off that witness stand, two things happened. Our readers who want Donald Trump to go away suddenly thought, “Holy shit, Bob Mueller is not going to do it.” And Donald Trump got a little emboldened politically, I think. Because, you know, for obvious reasons. And I think that the story changed. A lot of the stuff we’re talking about started to emerge like six or seven weeks ago. We’re a little tiny bit flat-footed. I mean, that’s what happens when a story looks a certain way for two years. Right?”
So, while the NYT, WaPo, and other lefty rags spewed lies and propaganda, outlets such as Breitbart, The Daily Wire, and The Daily Caller among others did real reporting and told the truth. For their efforts, a number of them have been banned on social media.
“Baquet pretty much spends the rest of the 90 minutes meeting fielding questions from individuals who are supposed to be professionals but who only want to know how they can call Trump and his supporters racists even more often.
“You see, according to the Times’ staff, everything is racist because everything really is racist.
“You probably think that whole “everything is racist” thing is me being sarcastic. Here’s a direct quote from a staffer [emphasis added]:
“Hello, I have another question about racism. I’m wondering to what extent you think that the fact of racism and white supremacy being sort of the foundation of this country should play into our reporting. Just because it feels to me like it should be a starting point, you know? Like these conversations about what is racist, what isn’t racist. I just feel like racism is in everything. It should be considered in our science reporting, in our culture reporting, in our national reporting. And so, to me, it’s less about the individual instances of racism, and sort of how we’re thinking about racism and white supremacy as the foundation of all of the systems in the country.
“Good grief. What a dispiriting and not-at-all surprising look at the ignorant whack jobs in charge of our media — and in the case of the New York Times, not just the media, but what is considered the elite of the media elite. What are they obsessed with? What do these conspiracy-loons see everywhere in 2019 America…?
“Here we sit in the most tolerant, diverse country in the world just a few years after having twice elected a black president with the middle name “Hussein,” and the people in charge of the media are breaking down into pools of self-pity because they want to scream racist at us even more than they already have.
“And again, let’s not forget that the only way they can try to pretend America is racist is by way of massive hoaxes: the Very Fine People Hoax, the Covington Hoax, the George Zimmerman Is White Hoax, the Hands Up Don’t Shoot Hoax, the Jussie Smollett Hoax, and the countless hoax hate crimes they spread over and over and over again without scrutiny.”
Good grief is an understatement. The NYT does not cover real news anymore like the rising tide of anti-Semitism in this country. They are too busy protecting terrorists and radicals, while smearing the president and conservatives, to do their actual jobs.
The New York Times openly admits that anti-Jewish hate crimes don’t interest the Times because white supremacists are not behind them: “If anti-Semitism bypasses consideration as a serious problem in New York, it is to some extent because it refuses to conform to an easy narrative with a single ideological enemy. During the past 22 months, not one person caught or identified as the aggressor in an anti-Semitic hate crime has been associated with a far right-wing group, Mark Molinari, commanding officer of the police department’s Hate Crimes Task Force, told me.”
But young white males are domestic terrorists according to these people. Geez. Not communist Antifa or Black Lives Matter or the Nation of Islam or the Black Panthers… white boys are the ticket, y’all.
Since the media is out of Russian ammo and they detest Trump, they have to have another way of smearing him and throwing the race card is their final desperate move in this political dance. Nothing else has stuck to Teflon-Don. Look for them to cry ‘racism’ non-stop for the next two years in their latest contrived hoax against the president. But you won’t hear them cover actual racism because it does not fit their political narrative. It has to be Trump, Trump, Trump! or it’s not news.
The NYT is a peddler of hate. No wonder they had to stop publishing political cartoons because the editorial staff can’t recognize blatant anti-Semitism. These aren’t journalists anymore… they are Brown Shirts. They feel they’ll get away with calling Trump a racist. After all, they got away with the Russian crap for two years.
Wow! The Deputy Editor of the Failing New York Times was just demoted. Should have been Fired! Totally biased and inaccurate reporting. The paper is a Fraud, Zero Credibility. Fake News takes another hit, but this time a big one!
