Grifting Obamas: Michelle Obama Charged $750,000 For a Single One-Hour Speech

Dem Crooked Vultures.

Former first lady Michelle Obama has reportedly walked away with nearly $750,000 after giving a one-hour speech on diversity and inclusion in Germany on Monday.

The 59-year-old former lawyer spoke to an estimated 5,000 attendees on how to "push past self-doubt while discussing the importance of inclusivity and diversity." at the annual Bits and Pretzels forum in Munich -- a start-up event held on the sidelines of the annual Oktoberfest beer festival, according to the event website.

Muh Diversity. What a surprise.


For her speech, Obama was paid 700,000 euros, which is roughly equivalent to $741,000, two unidentified sources close to the conference organizers told the Daily Mail.

Organizers told the outlet that the former first lady "topped the list" of people whom participants wanted to hear from "year after year."

"They really pulled out all the stops to get her," one person close to the team told the Daily Mail, adding: "It's one of the highest fees that they have ever paid."


...

Michelle Obama could usually be booked for speaking arrangements for $200,000, while her husband would cost $400,000, Axios reported in 2017.


But the former first lady seems to be earning more money amid speculation that she could be named the Democratic nominee for president.

I wouldn't take the fact that she's collecting all this money as a sign that she is not running for president. Hillary Clinton got bad press not because she was taking huge sums for her non-existent wisdom, but for the specific people who were pouring money into her bank account: filthy rich oligarch Wall Streeters and institutional bankers. Basically, the Democrat base that Democrat Party pretends they're the enemy of.

If Michelle Obama is talking about Muh Diversity in Germany, even for $15,000 per minute, she'll probably get away with it.

Because black people can no longer be criticized at all. That is Literal Genocide (TM) and Harming Black Bodies (TM).

...

Since he left office, Barack and Michelle Obama have seen their wealth explode thanks to media ventures including books and podcasts.

The former first lady netted a $65 million book advance for her bestselling memoir.

The couple also signed a $50 million deal with Netflix.

...

In total, the couple's net worth has been estimated at between $70 million and $135 million.

That huge fortune might be our salvation: These two ragefull ingrates might be making far too much money, and having too many conversations with Interesting Italians, to be tempted to pretend to hold jobs again.

It's that feeling of terror and violation that too many women have felt when someone has grabbed them, or forced himself on them and they've said no but he didn't listen - something that we know happens on college campuses and countless other places every single day. It reminds us of stories we heard from our mothers and grandmothers about how, back in their day, the boss could say and do whatever he pleased to the women in the office, and even though they worked so hard, jumped over every hurdle to prove themselves, it was never enough.

83 50-50 that she'll be the Democratic nominee.

I think that the strategy that the Democrats have hit on is to let the meaningless primary process play out, and then parachute in a replacement for Biden at the convention.

Rules? What rules? The DNC will change the rules as they see fit.

It will be either Newsom or Big Mike.

Newsom's advantages are that he really wants the job, isn't a bad politician, and is quite experienced in running for office.

Of course, he'd need a crippled left-handed black tranny to run with him on the ticket to offset his blinding heterosexual white maleness. (Kamala would be ineligible - can't have a P and a VP from the same state.)

Big Mike has the intersectionality points and the AWFLs love her.

Her problem is that she's lazy (she hasn't had to work hard for decades, since she stopped being a law firm associate and went to work for Valerie Jarrett at Chicago city hall), she hates white people, and might blurt something out during the campaign, and why should she give up the perfect life she has now anyway?

OTOH, she might respond to begging from the Democratic establishment, and the prospect of becoming The Greatest Woman Ever.

93 I would take this more as a sign Big Mike is running. This is typical Democrat fundraising tactics. They take huge sums from people like the Eurotrash who either couldn't contribute to a campaign or would exceed the limits. This is also done before declaring, so it's basically income. Democrats then use this to "contribute" to their own campaigns. All quite legal and they remove the fingerprints as to who is really funding them- that would be the global elites who aren't even citizens.

Although this is probably just disguised money-laundering and influence-peddling. The Obamas may technically be out of power, but they still wield great influence and have the right names on the Rolodex.

One question, though: did the attendees pay for the event? If so, then I can see why it may have been worth it to have Heavy-Shoulders speak. You want to sell tickets at high prices? You have to get major speakers, whatever "major" might be to the attendees. I wouldn't pay to see Taylor Swift either.

The clothing chain "Banana Republic" has just been named the Official Uniform Supplier for the new Michelle Obama line of Presidential Uniforms.

Featuring the Formal Presentation Uniform, a white, double-breasted tunic, replete with purple sash, ample medals and ribbons, epaulets, a peaked, badged hat and mirrored sunglasses. The jewel encrusted riding crop is a luxurious option, but is not a required part of the ensemble.

Matching Uniform Pants feature the patented David Brooks (sharp) Crease, hip to cuff purple stripes to match the jacket's sash, and of course, the pants are cut in the Jodhpur pattern so as to show off the custom Luchese hobnailed boots fashioned from select Guilty White Male hides.

The tiny purple matching, bedazzled clutch is just large enough to hold a half-dozen unlimited Un-American Express cards, and a brace of Magnum XL condoms, spiked for Barry O's pleasure.

Hints of this splendiferous outfit will soon be found across the Banana Republic line of Wine Momwear and Soccer Mom YogaPantwear.

Coming soon to a ganged-up mall or worn out strip center, near you!

This forum is mostly people who voted for Donald Trump, who had NO government experience at all (or foreign policy experience, or military service, or anything else outside of building gaudy hotel towers). That these same people who rabidly voted for the worst president in at least a century are complaining about Michelle Obama's "experience" is particularly rich.

Discussion of Michelle's experience echo the same complaint about her husband back in 2008. "He's just a junior senator! He doesn't have enough experience!" This was common back then, and he did a spectacular job as our commander in chief. Complaints about his - or Michelle's, if she decides to run - "experience" is a barely-coded racist dogwhistle.

Inexperienced presidents can be great like Obama or disastrous like Trump. But somehow the accusation of "inexperience" is leveled only at black leaders. That is not a coincidence, and it is not an accident. It underscores how deep the problem is.

========

After 2020, with the government outright calling for the jailing of people who question the questionable results, and getting away with it, the idea that there is a ceiling to the cheat or that Democrats are afraid of thinking that the people won't allow them to cheat as much next time is silly.

They definitely think there is no ceiling to it. PA sending out 250,000 mail in ballots "accidentally" and...illegally, and getting away with it in 2022, after the shenanigans of 2020 and the repeal of the governor's emergency powers, proved that.

I hope they're wrong. But I don't see why they should think that they're wrong.

No. They hate the middle class. Just like the Dems, they hate everyone. And just like the Dems, they hate the middle class the very most.

But, unlike the Democrats, they still bother to lie about it. Because that's how they feather their nests. Big money buys power, and the GOP doesn't have that on offer. So they need YOUR generous donation to STOP THE DEMS' RADICAL AGENDA*, so they don't look you right in the eye and say "you disgust us, you fucking peasant shitheel," the way they'd love to.

*Translation to American English: we need your generous donations to pay for our cocaine and child-ass, because the scraps we get from the senior faction of the ruling class isn't nearly enough for our avarice.

True, but the calls for him to drop out aren't based on the idea that another candidate would be stronger and thus better positioned to win fairly. The calls for him to drop out are nothing more than calls from various competing factions hoping to take his place. Pure self-interest.

369 >>What makes you think there's a limit to how much they can cheat? What event over the last few years shows that places like Philly, Fulton County, Maricopa, or Detroit will be limited in their cheating at all?

History didn't start 4 years ago. They haven't won every election. And so far we haven't had a pandemic with millions of ballots being sent out which enabled the cheating that literally everyone knows happened and will be watching for this time.

And you still won't address why so many voices are rising up on the left to have Joe drop out if his reelection is guaranteed. He's the incumbent, that doesn't happen unless they think they can lose.

DOCTOR Jill will escort her barely breathing husband on campaign like Johanna of Castile escorted her deceased husband, King Phillip I throughout Spain. Then to follow out the entire historical farce:


Against the demands of DOCTOR Jills a ruling council among the Biden cabinet will be set up but will be unable to manage the growing public disorder; plague and famine devastates the country with supposedly half the population perishing of one or the other. DOCTOR JILL will be unable to secure the funds required to assist her to protect her power. In the face of this, Trump will return. His arrival will coincided with a remission of the plague and famine, a development which quiets the instability and will indicate that his return had restored the health of the kingdom

They cheated in 2020 and 2022 senate/governor races. But in 2024 they won’t do that. Cuz reasons.

Posted by: Montec at September 27, 2023 01:31 PM (jNncL)

374 The cheat doesn’t have to be in the millions of votes. Biden’s “win” in 2020 was less than 100k votes spread out over 4 states. Out of 155M votes. It’s nothing for them to do this every election from now on. And if they have to increase it to 175k voted in 5 states? The operation easily scales.

I have addressed it. 326.

And, again, you are eluding the question on how voting has gotten better over the last few years. Every single Democrat who worked to make elections less secure in places like AZ, PA, GA (well, Republicans there because Raffensperger is a piece of shit), and MI have increased their power, entrenched the changes, and outright broken laws (like PA in 2022 sending out 250,000 mail in ballots they shouldn't have or AZ using signature verification so bad that the courts struck it down...10 months after the election), all while getting away with it.

Who is going to stop Hobbs and Fontes from just doing it all again in AZ?

I think it's that last point that people miss. Sure, they cheated bigly in '20. But once the election was over, people generally just said "well, you got us this time". In '24, all eyes will be squarely on those cities. They'll try to cheat, but they can't come in with 300% of the registered voters without it provoking a huge backlash. People really dislike being made fools of twice by the same trick.

They don't need that. They just break the law on something like signature verification then wait 10 months for a court to say, "bad boy, don't do it again", while retaining the power that they cheated to get.
