OPINION: Tucker Carlson Predicts America’s Most Divisive Woman Will Be The Democrat Presidential Candidate

As the time until the next presidential election draws closer and the Democratic candidates start dwindling down, the question that sits in the back of everyone’s mind is, who will be the Democratic nominee?

Most people are thinking Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, or now at this point, it could even be Pete Buttigieg. But Tucker Carlson weighed in on the matter and said not to count this person out…and it’s someone who isn’t even in the race…yet.

That person is Michelle Obama.

According to the Washington Examiner,

“If you’re wondering who the Democratic nominee will be, don’t bet against Michelle Obama,” he said on Monday’s Tucker Carlson Tonight. “Last week, the former first lady issued a statement claiming she has no interest in being president, but there are signs that’s not true.”

Carlson then pointed to several examples that have made him suspicious about a potential Obama bid, including David Axlerod’s attacks on 2020 front-runner and former Vice President Joe Biden, former President Barack Obama’s refusal to endorse Biden in the race so far, and reports that the former president tried to convince his No. 2 not to enter.

Carlson continued, “If Obama had endorsed Biden, the race would be over … Obama hasn’t endorsed Joe Biden because he doesn’t want to. Why? Maybe he’s got other plans. Obama’s presidential memoir was also supposed to come out this year. Now, its release has been delayed until the middle of the Democratic primaries. In other words, at exactly the moment when Democrats will be thinking deeply about how to beat Trump, America will be talking about the Obamas. Coincidence? Maybe.”

“Maybe it’s also a coincidence that Michelle Obama just released yet another book last week, one that will require her, of course, to get on the road and talk to crowds … The Democratic Party is ripping itself apart over race, and gender, and class. Michelle Obama, let’s be honest, is one of the only people who could unite its warring factions.”

Melania Trump Cuts Pork from First Lady Payroll After Michelle Obama’s Extensive Spending


Posted by GirlsJustWannaHaveGuns.com | on October 20, 2017

First Lady Melania Trump is running a very tightly budgeted and lightly staffed operation — all the while taking on a more active role in her new position as a world leader. This is a refreshing turn, because in recent history most of the first ladies have had a very extensive staff.

‘According to a Fox News analysis of White House personnel reports, Melania Trump has significantly reduced the number of aides on the first lady’s office payroll in comparison to her predecessor, Michelle Obama,’ reports Fox News.

Former President Barack Obama’s first year in office, Michelle had a staff of 16 people employed at a cost of $1.24 million a year.

Compare that to Melania, who only has 4 people working for her at a total cost of $486,700.

Talk about a big difference.

And in fact, the 2009 annual report lists only 16 staffers for Obama, but the then-first lady’s press secretary said 24 people were actually on her staff. FactCheck.org confirmed the story and said Obama’s 24 aides might have broken records.

“That may indeed be the largest of any first lady, but Hillary Clinton, with 19 staffers, and Laura Bush with at least 18 and perhaps more, weren’t far behind,” reported FactCheck.org. 

‘[Melania’s] office isn’t the only place in the White House where the Trump administration has trimmed staff positions. When the White House personnel report was released in June, Forbes reported 110 fewer employees under Donald Trump than Barack Obama and said the projected four-year savings resulting from the cuts could be more than $22 million,’ reports Fox News.

After eight years of President Barack Obama’s failed policies at home and abroad, Michelle Obama went on Oprah this week to complain that Americans have lost hope. Nothing annoys Judge Jeanine Pirro more than unjustified attacks and hypocritical statement so she let rip on Michelle Obama.

Judge Jeanine: Since when does hope rise and fall with you and Barack in the White House?… But I get it. For you hope is gone. You and your family and friends won’t be able to fly to another 46 countries with security and hair and makeup in tow. Michelle you may not realize it but Americans rejected you and everything you stand for. They know what hope is. Hope is when people, 30,000 at a time stand in line, in the cold, with their children, hoping to get a glimpse of the man that they think can change the course of their lives from the downward spiral that you and Mr. Hope and Change have put them on.

AMEN

Michelle Obama Ticks Off Marine…So He RIPS Her to Shreds In Must Read Letter

URL of the original posting site: http://clashdaily.com/2015/12/michelle-obama-ticks-off-marine-so-he-rips-her-to-shreds-in-must-read-letter

This is what happens when Michelle Obama ticks off a Marine so much that he decides to respond. This letter is brutal and filled with hard truth…not to mention, it also echoes what so many of those who love our country feel about MO and BHO.

Mrs. Obama,

It sickens me that I have to take time to write you this letter. I am a Marine who doesn’t recognize color because every color has lived and died for you. You live in a free country to blame your life on the color of another man’s skin. All colors have given their lives for an educated woman to have the freedom to be so ignorant. I don’t blame black people for the ignorance that comes from your mouth.

I love all colors because I love all that God creates. I don’t have to like you to love you because we can’t always like the ones we love. Just because I don’t like you today doesn’t mean I can’t like you tomorrow. I don’t like you or your husband today because of what you’re doing to this country. Isn’t it funny how the truth always reveals itself in time. You and your husband never showed this side of yourselves in 2008 before he was elected.

You both live better than 99% of the people in this world because of this country. You said that you are for the first time proud to be an American. Well, I will tell you that most of us are ashamed of you. You and your husband have become millionaires off the people of this country, but demonstrate very little appreciation for all that we give. White, black, brown or indifferent millions have fought and died for you to have the freedom to say the ignorant things you say.

You are educated, but clearly have very little common sense. You blame past generations of Americans for the troubles of a few. Stop blaming white people for your misery and take a look at yourself in the mirror. We are responsible for our own happiness and misery. The KKK is ignorance wrapped in a sheet while the Black panthers are raised on ignorance and hate. No different from the teaching of Islam thinking their race is better than all other men. 

God is love and creates every color to include everyone’s skin. To truly love God is to love all that He loves. For that I love each of you and pray that we all start taking responsibility for our own damned sins.

Martin Luther King had a dream that we would all live in the promise land. He is not remembered for being black. He is remembered for the love, and character he had within his heart. If you don’t like this country get on that plane and never come back. I will stay here and love all Americans, regardless of skin. I will love the beauty of what God created and stand tall with my American friends. Not because of their color but for the character and love they carry within. This country doesn’t owe you anymore than it owes me.

So many have thanked me for my service and I will always be grateful. I pray that one day you and your husband might cause me to be grateful for yours. You will never be remembered as the First Lady of Color but soon forgotten after you leave the White House. You nor your husband shall ever divide us. I wish you no harm, but pray you will take your troubles to a land you no longer hate. Hate shall come and go but His love shall last forever. (Source)

Michelle Obama to jump in race for president?

Michelle-Obama2Could the 2016 race for the Oval Office get any crazier?

On the GOP side, there’s a long list of experienced politicians with long lists of accomplishments to their names seeking the presidency – senior governors, senators and statesmen – and they’re all trailing Donald Trump, a shoot-from-the-hip billionaire with a knack for saying what many people across the country are feeling.

And on the Democrat side, there’s surging support for a self-avowed socialist who is challenging Hillary Clinton, who thought she was the anointed candidate in 2008, only to be knocked off her pedestal by upstart Barack Obama. She considers herself anointed now, but finds her support fading quickly.

So how about the gauntlet being thrown down by … Michelle Obama? There already are some commenting on the idea.

WND commentator Star Parker told WND she was at a book signing in Washington this week and was asked about the possibility. She admitted she’s watching that possible development closely. “I’ve even seen bumper stickers that say Michelle 2016,” Parker told WND. “Until the primaries are absolutely closed, my eye is on Michelle.”

Michelle32

She suggested there’s a behind-the-scenes move developing that is turning her into a cause celebre. Washington columnist Edward Klein has reported that Michelle Obama’s plans after her husband’s presidency are big – and they don’t necessarily include her husband. “For a while, the first lady played with the idea of running for the Illinois Senate seat now occupied by Republican Mark Kirk, who was hobbled by a 2012 stroke and recently fell during a vote on the Senate floor. But she has since all but dismissed this idea,” he reported. (It was from an Illinois Senate seat that Barack Obama launched his successful bid for the Oval Office.)

But while describing how Michelle Obama “envisions” a future alongside “best friend and confidant Valerie Jarrett,” he said she also “doesn’t want to step down from that luxurious Air Force One lifestyle.”

A May Rasmussen poll found, if Michelle decided to run for president, she’d pose the most significant threat to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton than any other Democratic Party contender.

What do YOU think? Sound off on the rumor Michelle Obama may run for president

On April 30, Michelle joked about running for the White House when she was a guest on “The Late Show with David Letterman” (6:00 mark).“I’m retiring in a few weeks,” Letterman said.

“No kidding,” Michelle responded.

“And I know that your time at the White House, in a couple years, same sort of thing,” Lettterman said. “You won’t be retiring, though. But do you ever glimpse that far down the road?”

Michelle replied, “What, like when I’m going to be running for president or anything?”

“Something to consider,” Letterman said.

&amp;amp;amp;lt;div&amp;amp;amp;gt;Please enable Javascript to watch this video&amp;amp;amp;lt;/div&amp;amp;amp;gt;In his book, “Blood Feud,” Ed Klein claims Michelle and Jarrett nicknamed Hillary “Hildebeest.” In a June 21, 2014, article for the New York Post, Klein wrote about an exchange between President Obama and former President Bill Clinton:

During the golf game, Clinton didn’t waste any time reminding Obama that as president, he had presided over eight years of prosperity, while Obama had been unable to dig the country out of the longest financial ­doldrums since the Great Depression.

“Bill got into it right away,” said a Clinton family friend. “He told Obama, ‘Hillary and I are gearing up for a run in 2016.’ He said Hillary would be ‘the most qualified, most experienced candidate, perhaps in history.’ His reference to Hillary’s experience made Obama wince, since it was clearly a shot at his lack of experience when he ran for president.

“And so Bill continued to talk about Hillary’s qualifications … and the coming campaign in 2016. But Barack didn’t bite. He changed the subject several times. Then suddenly, Barack said something that took Bill by complete surprise. He said, ‘You know, Michelle would make a great presidential candidate, too.’

“Bill was speechless. Was Barack comparing Michelle’s qualifications to Hillary’s? Bill said that if he hadn’t been on a mission to strike a deal with Barack, he might have stormed off the golf course then and there.”

In March, MSNBC host Alex Wagner discussed Hillary’s continuing email scandal on her show. Panelist Adam Rapoport expressed little confidence in Hillary’s run, asking: “Who else do we have?” Columbia University professor Dorian Warren chimed in: “I want to start a whisper campaign on your show right now. I think we should draft Michelle Obama to run.” He continued, “Let’s draft the first lady right now. She is equally as talented and smart as her husband. I think she would make a great president.” However, back in 2013, Michelle told Parade Magazine that she had no plans to run.

Alinsky affectBut at the MrConservative blog was more speculation: “Rumors are heating up that Michelle Obama will edge out Hillary Clinton for the Democrat nomination for president in the upcoming 2016 race for the White House. How’s that for scary, eh?” The column continued, “Rumors have been making the rounds that Barack expects to push his wife into the spotlight in order to finally destroy the Clinton machine and put himself 100 percent in charge of the American far left and its power base, the Democrat Party.” It follows speculation over the Obama years that he really doesn’t want to give up power. “Note that President Obama has built an entire campaign edifice that has not turned its resources over to the Democrat Party,” the column suggested. “Obama’s Organizing for Action (which used to be Obama for America) is still in full operation and is used solely to raise money for Obama and his personal causes as well as for pushing his own political message. This billion dollar organizing machine has not turned its gigantic email list over to the Democrat Party nor has it lent is vast online capabilities to the Democrat Party.”

A Michelle Obama campaign for 2016 would allow to continue “the destruction of America,” the column said, “along Barack’s ideological basis with eight years of a ‘historic’ first black, female president.”

WND had reported in 2013 there were comments about a Hillary Clinton-Michelle Obama “dream ticket” in 2016. “All due respect for President Obama and Vice President Biden, but that would truly be a dream team for America,” former Clinton spokeswoman Karen Finney said at the time, shortly after the 2012 results, according to the Washington Examiner. “Both women are proven effective leaders who’ve raise children, so dealing with Congress would be a snap!”

Democratic strategist Chris Lehane told the paper then, “More than anything else, this reflects the growing awareness that it is time for the glass ceiling of the last old boys club to be firmly shattered.”

There already were bumper stickers in the marketplace with messages such as “2016-Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama,” and “Hillary-Michelle 2016 First First Lady Ticket For President.”

See one here:

HillMichsticker

Keys takenBut as WND reported in 2009, an online poll by CNN had viewers overwhelmingly saying Michelle Obama should never run for president. The question specifically asked: “Should Michelle Obama run for president in 2020?” With 200,000 votes tallied in the unscientific poll, 83 percent of respondents answered no, with a ratio of over 165,000 against the idea to only 35,000 in favor.

Talk-radio giant Rush Limbaugh also said, when asked in 2013 about the prospect of a Michelle Obama campaign, he didn’t think it would happen. “I don’t think that Mrs. Obama wants the job. I don’t think that’s in the cards,” he said. “I could be wrong.” He said the Obamas probably both think the job is “beneath them.” “They want the world,” Limbaugh explained. “When Barack finishes this, it’s on to the United Nations, or whatever new organization they come up with.” Although, he did note, Michelle Obama, “would be immune to criticism.” “Imagine the first black female president. Anything can happen.”

Momma Michelle Wages Her Finger At Barack’s Dissenters


Michelle Obama Lectures Dems About Separation of Powers

Look at the expression. Arrogance supreme. Careful Michelle when you wag your finger at anyone. You have four more fingers pointed back at the real culprit.

A day before the White House apologized to the Senate Intelligence Committee for not alerting Congress before trading five high-level terrorists for a captured American soldier, first lady Michelle Obama lectured donors about the separation of powers.

BS WARNING BS ALERT

“Too often, we forget what we learned in civics class back in middle school, about how we have a separation of powers between three branches of government,” she said on Monday at a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee fundraiser in Boston.

The first lady claimed that, whenever people ask her why her husband cannot just “pass health care” or “get immigration reform done” or “hasn’t just fixed infrastructure yet,” she tells them, “you all know who has the final say on all of that, don’t you? Who? Congress. You guys remember civics. It’s Congress.” Really 01

She may have to remind her husband, a former constitutional law lecturer, about that.

As Breitbart News reported, Rep. Buck McKeon (R-CA), the Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, and Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK), the Ranking Member on the Senate Armed Services Committee, blasted Obama over the weekend for “clearly” violating “laws which require him to notify Congress thirty days before any transfer of terrorists from Guantanamo Bay and to explain how the threat posed by such terrorists has been substantially mitigated.”

Remember

“Our joy at Sergeant Berghdal’s release is tempered by the fact that President Obama chose to ignore the law, not to mention sound policy, to achieve it,” they said. “Trading five senior Taliban leaders from detention in Guantanamo Bay for Berghdal’s release may have consequences for the rest of our forces and all Americans. Our terrorist adversaries now have a strong incentive to capture Americans. That Really 01incentive will put our forces in Afghanistan and around the world at even greater risk.”

The White House cited “unique and exigent circumstances” for not notifying Congress, but this is nowhere near the first time the White House has acted alone with complete disregard for Congress.

On immigration, the Obama administration has indicated it will act to unilaterally change immigration laws after already having done so in 2012 with the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. Obama instructed Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to delay the administration’s deportation review, but Democrats have indicated that the Obama administration will act alone to ease deportations if amnesty legislation is not passed in six weeks. Last week, the Pentagon said it would allow some DREAMers to enroll in the military before announcing they would delay the implementation of the policy change.

Michelle Obama To High-School Grads: Monitor Your Parents For “Thoughtcrime”


Written by Pete Kasperowicz, The Blaze:

11:24 AM 05/19/2014

There can be no aspect of your daily life that’s removed from politics. Now you will be monitored by your own children for expressing unapproved opinions. You’d better watch what you say at the dinner table, Mom and Dad.

First lady Michelle Obama is encouraging students to monitor their older relatives, friends and co-workers for any racially insensitive comments they might make, and to challenge those comments whenever they’re made.

The first lady spoke on Friday to graduating high school students in Topeka, Kansas, and in remarks released over the weekend, Obama said students need to police family and friends because federal laws can only go so far in stopping racism.

“[O]ur laws may no longer separate us based on our skin color, but nothing in the Constitution says we have to eat together in the lunchroom, or live together in the same neighborhoods,” she said. “There’s no court case against believing in stereotypes or thinking that certain kinds of hateful jokes or comments are funny.”hater up

Oh, if only we could control what other people think and feel. But until that magic day arrives, all we can do is set people against each other based on race, under the guise of “fighting racism.”

“Those of you who know history will recognize this as one of the things Hitler got the children of Germany to do. They turned in their parents. Now the Obama Administration wants the same.” JB

I wonder if this extends toward hateful jokes or comments about white people? Or is that simply considered social justice? After all, those hillbillies have got it coming for possessing the same skin tone as other people who’ve said and done bad things.

Of course, this post is racist because the First Lady is black. If you don’t condemn me for disagreeing with her, you’re a racist too.

Racist.

The Radical Racist Background of Michelle Obama


http://freedomoutpost.com/2013/08/the-radical-racist-background-of-michelle-obama-were-not-talking-about-barack/

 

I did some background checking into Michelle Obama and her links with socialists, communists and other high ranking radicals that wish nothing more than to destroy the United States as it is, and create a brand new United States! This may sound absurd and demeaning, but it is true. Some of the words spoken by Michelle Obama and her husband Barack Obama have come directly from a radical book titled Rules for Radicals by Saul D. Alinsky.

I’ll expose Alinsky’s background in future articles, but before we go too far, let us just start with Michelle Obama’s college days, since to find her high school history seems to be quite difficult.

Michelle Obama’s maiden name was Michelle LaVaughn Robinson, and she was born on January 17, 1964. She married Barack Hussein Obama in 1992.

According to FrontPageMagazine reporter Jacob Laksin, “In a [February 2008] interview with Newsweek, [Michelle] Obama reveals that she got into Princeton …not on the strength of her grades, which she admits were unexceptional, but thanks to her brother Craig, a star athlete and gifted student who preceded her to the school. As a ‘legacy’ candidate and a beneficiary of affirmative action, Michelle Obama was granted an opportunity that others more accomplished were denied.”

The First lady got her college education due to her brother and her ethnicity, not her excellence in academics. So why is she such a radical racist woman? It must come from somewhere in her background. Perhaps her parents were the ones who led her to this road of turmoil about racial prejudice. Let us take a brief look to see just what she was doing at Princeton while she was there and what types of people she had as her close friends. Some of Michelle Obama’s contacts in College were of the Marxist/socialist types.

Princeton, 1984

Charles C. Johnson wrote on October 30, 2012, “Michelle Obama attends and promotes a ‘Black Solidarity’ event for guest lecturer Manning Marable, who was, according to Cornel West, probably ‘the best known black Marxist in the country.’ The event is the work of the Third World Center (TWC), a campus group whose board membership is exclusively reserved for minorities.”

With this documented article, we see that Michelle Obama, much like her husband is closely associated with the teachings of Marxism and had attended meetings with Marxist-type people. We must now wonder, why did the people elect a man with a wife that has such a marked background, mixed with Marxism and communism by association with such types of people?

Michelle Robinson’s racial animosity of Caucasian people is exposed through her articles and statements from the time she was at Princeton. One can see this in her ideas that the white population at Princeton were a bunch of “racist” individuals. Johnson quotes an article Michelle Robinson (Obama) wrote while at Princeton University, following an introduction to the quotation.

 If ever there was an example of the TWC governing board’s obsession with race, an editorial from October 21, 1981 is it. The members took great offense to an op-ed titled “Rebuilding Race Relations,” calling the article “racist, offensive, and inaccurate” for daring to question the group’s true commitment and to present a thesis on race relations counter to its own.

“The word RE-building implies that race relations once existed and, for some mysterious reasons, fell apart …,” the board wrote in a scathing letter to the editor. “We, on the other hand, believe that race relations have never​been and still are not at a satisfactory level. We are not RE-building. We cannot RE-build something that never existed in the first place.”

“Don’t hide behind excuses such as a lack of effort [to integrate with the Princeton campus] on our part,” the revealing letter added. “The bottom line is that white students on this campus are racist, but they may not realize it.” [Emphasis added]

Princeton itself, however, was concerned about the self-segregation by black students and proposed reforms to counter it, including no longer permitting black students to all room together in one dorm and integrating black freshmen into the general student body. The TWC strenuously opposed all of these reforms, arguing that integration of nonwhite students would harm the “support system” available to them, especially blacks. (Julie Newton, “TWC criticizes CURL plan: Minority strife would worsen,” The Daily Princetonian, October 21, 1981).”

The TWC is an organization of whose membership was exclusively reserved to Minorities only and the initials represent the words, “Third World Center”. Here we have to note that Michelle Robinson was an activist that had the intention to change the very ideology of the Princeton school she got into through the use of her brother! Here, she makes the statement, “The bottom line is that white students on this campus are racist, but they may not realize it” [Emphasis added]. This clearly shows an animosity towards white people while she was attending Princeton, and it also shows just what she thought of the college that allowed her to enter based upon her brother’s position and not her grades. Michelle Robinson was actually biting the hand that fed her!

Princeton took a look at the problems and came up with a plan that would integrate the different people and bring them into a more associative bonding. However, this was not strong enough for Michelle Robinson or the TWC since that would solve the problem that they shine a spotlight on, but it was not what they wanted and they countered that idea as shown below.

“Princeton itself, however, was concerned about the self-segregation by black students and proposed reforms to counter it, including no longer permitting black students to all room together in one dorm and integrating black freshmen into the general student body. The TWC strenuously opposed all of these reforms, arguing that integration of nonwhite students would harm the “support system” available to them, especially blacks. (Julie Newton, “TWC criticizes CURL plan: Minority strife would worsen,” The Daily Princetonian, October 21, 1981).”

Michelle Robinson was part of the group, but not a full board member at that time, but when she did become a board member she found yet another racially-charged way to make a statement. Michelle Obama was an individual that found fault with anything that dealt with ethnicity. Johnson documents her actions and statements in 1983 as follows:

“While Michelle was not a part of the board in 1981, as a board member of the Third World Center starting on April 7, 1983 she joined in a different racially-charged statement reproaching the college for not doing enough to hire “Latino administrators.” In a letter a few weeks later, the TWC attacked Princeton’s administration for not replacing Hector Delgado, a minority dean of students.

 “This search needs to produce another experienced individual who is of minority background, preferably Latino, and who will be responsive to the concerns of Third World Center as well as the student body at large,” the TWC’s governing board wrote.

 Others on campus took notice of the group’s calls and expressed concern.

 For example, Fred Foote —the editor of Prospect magazine, a conservative monthly publication —criticized the TWC and Delgado for their obsessive focus on race.

 “[Delgado’s] penchant for drawing campus issues along racial lines—a penchant shared by the TWC and The Daily Princetonian—is the chief cause of racial strife on campus,” he wrote.”

Now this seems to show without a doubt that others on campus were looking at this action by the TWC of which Michelle Robinson,(Obama), was a part of. It seems to show that had she and the others just allowed actions to drift by, the so-called problems would have been much less in the front of the students than their curriculum was. Now one has to wonder why take such actions if the college was getting along just fine before?

Michelle Robinson (Obama) did more than make meetings and express her seemingly hate for whites, she went on with the TWC and made demands for minority only meetings. She would have been up in arms to stop such meetings if they were to the exclusion of minorities. Yet it was fine, and even better, when she stood alongside a segregation policy that banned whites from any meetings held by the TWC! This is well noted in statements below.

“In November 1984, TWC’s board demanded that nonwhite students should have the right to bar whites from their meetings on campus. They also demanded minorities-only meetings with the deans. (John Hurley, “Black students, university debate closed meeting policy,” The Daily Princetonian, November 29, 1984). The ban was frankly unnecessary, since whites were made to feel unwelcome at the meetings if they were invited at all, but the TWC continued to press for it, arguing, too, that blacks ought to be able to bar whites from attending events aimed at discussion of “sensitive” racial issues.

 “The administration, by denying us these [blacks-only] meetings, is saying that we don’t have specific needs that have to be addressed this way,” David Jackson, ’87, a fellow TWC member, told the Daily Princetonian after the university officials finally rejected its proposal to hold racially limited meetings.

But despite the radical and racialist character of the TWC, Michelle Robinson was an active participant and may have been attracted by that very radicalism.

 “The Third World Center was our life,” Angela Acree, her best friend at Princeton, told The Boston Globe in June 2008. “We hung out there, we partied there, we studied there [in Liberation Hall].”

 “Not a day went by that I did not see Michelle at the Center,” Czerni Brasuelle, TWC’s director at the time, told the Daily Princetonian in its November 5, 2008 issue.”

This would seem to indicate that Michelle Robinson (Obama) did not like the idea of all ethnicities working together, and would rather have them separate from each other. However, this is not what our nation had been working towards. It had been working towards having ethnic groups working together and not apart. This was so we all could be together as one nation, as Americans. Michelle Robinson in 1983-84 did not like that idea and helped call for separate and different meetings just for minorities. No whites could be there at all. Yet it was Michelle Robinson (Obama) that had stated that race relations at Princeton were deficient. However, it seems that she was part of the problem. She sat on the board of TWC to force Princeton to have separate meetings for minorities without any whites allowed! This does not bring ethnicities together nor does it resolve problems. It would make them worse due to the distancing of the minorities from the white population and causing the white population to wonder what the monitories are planning. However, this was just the beginning for Michelle Robinson.

This is the first of a 2 part article on Michelle Robinson Obama. The next article will show her use of Saul Alinsky’s works, a man she admired along with her husband Barack Obama.
