Michelle Obama Book Excerpt:

There is no one quite like her. Michelle Obama. This is the first book to tell the astonishing story of a woman whose intellect, verbal flair, and poise are certain to make her one of the most influential First Ladies in history. A woman whose remark, “For the first time in my adult life I am really proud of my country,” did her husband's campaign no good. A woman whose impassioned speech to the Democratic National Convention may have helped win him the Oval Office. A woman touted as a future presidential candidate herself. Readers are given a revealing and intimate look at Michelle Obama's remarkable life—from her Chicago childhood to her education at Princeton and Harvard, from how she first met Barack Obama at the prestigious law firm where they were the only African-Americans, to her role as his closest adviser, and to her own political beliefs. For Michelle, family comes first, and—like so many women who struggle between family and career—she seriously weighed her husband's presidential ambitions before giving her stamp of approval. Apparently she struck a hard bargain: he had to give up smoking.

Michelle Obama Book Excerpt:

It will be a deeply reported book tracing Michelle's life from her beginnings to now. She was every parent's dream, skipping second grade because of her smarts, going on to Princeton and then Harvard Law School. The book will describe the South side of Chicago where the Robinson family grew up, Michelle's parents (her father had MS and worked for the city of Chicago, her mother stayed home), the hard-working culture of the Robinson family, Michelle's experience on the racially-tense campus of Princeton in the early 80s, her success at Harvard, how she experienced the death of her father and best friend, how she met Obama, the kind of partnership they have created, the kind of career as a lawyer and health care executive she pursued in Chicago, her views about political life and her aptitude for it, and her profile as a mother. The book will be based on the public record, on interviews she has given in the past, and on fresh interviews with her and members of her circle.

Michelle Obama 2024 Book Excerpt:

Michelle Obama is not who she pretends to be. In Michelle Obama 2024, filmmaker Joel Gilbert does a deep dive into the life of the most popular woman in America and reveals one game-changing detail after another. Gilbert’s investigative journey takes him from Chicago to Princeton to Washington to Martha’s Vineyard and beyond. Along the way, he discovers that Michelle has created a cynical, highly effective, false narrative of her life story based largely on gender and race. In Chicago, Gilbert chronicles how Michelle has repeatedly run from the Black community or sold it out, much as her father did when he served as a precinct captain for the Daley Machine. Gilbert then exposes Michelle Obama’s “I hate politics” disclaimer as strategic cover for her intense lifelong political advocacy as he deconstructs Michelle’s bestselling autobiography, Becoming. As the best-loved Democrat, Michelle has been preparing to run for President since 2016 by following the same formula as Barack did before her. This includes writing an autobiography, giving the keynote speech at the Democrat Convention, and heading up a voter registration organization. Gilbert also unveils Michelle’s psychological dark side and explains how her deep feelings of inadequacy drive her to run for the presidency. Gilbert ultimately reveals the real Michelle Obama, one very few Americans know or understand, but that all must be wary of as she seeks the highest office in the land. If she wins in 2024, Gilbert predicts, Michelle will take orders from global elitesand chaos will follow as surely as night follows day.

Michelle Obama and the FLOTUS Effect Book Excerpt:

"The FLOTUS Effect" emphasizes the import of agency on the part of Michelle Obama in relation to her politics as evidenced in her positionality and presence as the first African American woman to serve as First Lady of the United States of America. Her occupation of a previously white space and place tended to frame her as an enigma in the American mind and media. Contributors reflect on Mrs. Obama’s eight years in her ceremonial position, and the ways she chose to uniquely embody her role. Hence, the result is a volume that speculates upon her evolving legacy, and the likely “effects” of what it meant to be the first African-American woman to serve in the ceremonial, yet powerful, role of FLOTUS.

Summary Rebuttal for Becoming by Michelle Obama Book Excerpt:

Thanks to mass marketing from deep pocketed progressives into 28 languages from a parent publishing firm from Germany, called Bertelsmann, which own's Crown, Michelle Obama's book, Becoming, is likely to enjoy the status and influence of the best selling memoir of all time--unless Barack’s A Promised Land, can beat it. Bertelsmann, which initially became rich from publishing for Hitler through exploiting Jewish slave labor, influences most of the Western world as a serpent which molted into the world’s biggest publishing company. Bertelsmann soon earned a reputation for meddling in global politics, accepted routine visits from heads of state, and made Barack and Michelle rich. Barack’s first lucrative contract came just before he entered office, making it perfectly legal, albeit unethical. The biggest contracts came after they left the White House. We can assume they got something in return for Germany and the EU other than book profits--like a deal to publish Common Core or an Obama push for the Paris Climate Agreement. It just doesn’t seem right to make all of that money off of public office, especially when you profess concern for income inequality and the plight of the poor. According to The Atlantic, Barack Obama leaked that Michelle’s publisher employed a ghostwriter for her life chronicles, and, of course, claimed that he will not. This becomes obvious with professional-level passages filled with clever use of verbs, adjectives, and descriptions more fitting for a practiced novelist than an attorney or hospital outreach director. It is not uncommon for celebrities to employ ghostwriters, but when the memoir is hyped as “in her own words,” then it becomes unsettling, even disgusting. This summary book is a most unusual and valuable book for understanding Michelle Obama, her origins, and her participation in a partisan plot, including an arranged marriage, with Barack Obama and his leftist, activist, and big-business backers, to capture the White House for profit and global influence. This book presents a summary of Becoming as published, but then continuously counters with a rebuttal which is expanded after the summary. So you get Bertelsmann’s version of her story, and then the real and truthful version, simultaneously, and with cited references from reputable sources. IMPOSTOR SYNDROME Imposter Syndrome, or “fraud syndrome,” is not uncommon among celebrities as a psychological affliction in which a person not only questions their abilities, intelligence, and accomplishments, but harbors a nagging and constant fear of being revealed as a fraud. According to the BBC, on December 3, 2018, Michelle Obama interviewed in London with Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and, when asked how she felt about her perception as a symbol of hope, told the world that she has Impostor Syndrome, and she finds it hard to believe that people listen to her at all, and that people should not take her seriously. Michelle summed it up by saying she sometimes feels like a fraud. Could it be that not only is she a fraud, but, along with Barack Obama, an integral part of the perhaps the biggest, most serious, most damaging fraud in world history, responsible for the pilfering of trillions of dollars, economic stagnation, the abandonment of morality, killing hundreds of thousands, and further dividing a nation by race and gender? If true, Michelle and Barack’s fraud may have provided the funding and leadership, and access by foreign governments, to finally destroy the values and fabric of the United States forever in favor of leftist and communist agendas. Fraud, or fraud and treason?

Race Gender and Politics in Michelle Obama s Autobiography Becoming An African American Women s Autobiography and First Lady Memoir Book Excerpt:

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2020 in the subject American Studies - Literature, University of Luxembourg, language: English, abstract: This BA dissertation is dedicated to the genre of autobiographies, also known as life writing. It focuses on Michelle Obama's 2018 memoir "Becoming" and discusses both the traditions of African-American female autobiographies and the political memoir genre. "Becoming" permits Obama to tell her own story to set the record straight. It gives her the opportunity to rewrite her story and define her own identity for herself. Writing as a former political figure–the First Lady of the United States of America, Obama does not refrain from incorporating her personal life as well as a personal message. As a former First Lady, "Becoming" can be understood as being part of the genre of the First Lady memoir. As such, Obama’s autobiography can be defined as an intersection between African American women’s autobiographies and the genre of First Lady memoir which have both been largely excluded from the literary canon. Thus, Obama constitutes a minority within a minority as she is not only a First Lady, but she is the nation’s only African American First Lady. Moreover, Obama constitutes a political observer and having written one of the most valuable autobiographies of the twenty-first century, she illustrates how despite the fact that African Americans have largely been excluded from American politics, her autobiography demonstrates the progress America has made by electing its first African American president. In this thesis, it is my contention that Obama’s autobiography "Becoming" constructs an amalgamation between African American women’s life writing and the autobiographical sub-genre of the First Lady memoir. African American women autobiographers construct a self that has, as Terrell puts it, two central handicaps – gender and race. This statement from the 20th century captures the intersectionality of African American women’s identities. In her autobiography "Becoming", Michelle Obama shows her awareness of her intersectional identity as she writes ‘I’ve been the only woman, the only African American, in all sorts of rooms’. Thus, the tradition of African American women’s autobiographies requires a suitable theoretical framework when examining their texts.

Obama Clinton Palin Book Excerpt:

Election 2008 made American history, but it was also the product of American history. Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Sarah Palin smashed through some of the most enduring barriers to high political office, but their exceptional candidacies did not come out of nowhere. In these timely and accessible essays, a distinguished group of historians explores how the candidates both challenged and reinforced historic stereotypes of race and sex while echoing familiar themes in American politics and exploiting new digital technologies. Contributors include Kathryn Kish Sklar on Clinton’s gender masquerade; Tiffany Ruby Patterson on the politics of black anger; Mitch Kachun on Michelle Obama and stereotypes about black women’s bodies; Glenda E. Gilmore on black women’s century of effort to expand political opportunities for African Americans; Tera W. Hunter on the lost legacy of Shirley Chisholm; Susan M. Hartmann on why the U.S. has not yet followed western democracies in electing a female head of state; Melanie Gustafson on Palin and the political traditions of the American West; Ronald Formisano on the populist resurgence in 2008; Paula Baker on how digital technologies threaten the secret ballot; Catherine E. Rymph on Palin’s distinctive brand of political feminism; and Elisabeth I. Perry on the new look of American leadership.
