Former First Lady Michelle Obama is back once again on the political scene. This time, she is taking aim at and plunging into the midterm 2018 election. Since Michelle has been one of the most sought-after voices on the Democratic side of things, you would think the left would be thrilled by this development. Not so much. They don’t seem to be happy about it at all as a matter of fact. After reading the details, I was not surprised by the frustration on the left over this.
Michelle’s big political plan entails starting a voter registration drive, but it will be strictly nonpartisan. The Democrats were hoping and praying she would actively campaign for their candidates and could be very disappointed in this development. But saying one thing and doing another tends to be the stock and trade of the left, so I would just keep an eye on the so-called ‘bipartisanship’ of all of this. It looks iffy to me.
The initiative is being launched today. Evidently, there have been months of quiet conversations and planning to pull this off. It has not been a smooth ride and the initiative has had its ups and downs as all such things do politically. Michelle Obama will appear in public service announcements to get out the vote and register people. She will also take part in live events throughout the country right up until the voting starts this fall.
As expected, Michelle Obama will not be alone in her efforts. She will be joined by a number of A-list celebrities, including actor Tom Hanks, country stars Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, Houston Rockets star Chris Paul, singer Janelle Monae and “Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda. All are leftists, so the ‘bipartisanship’ of all this falls a bit flat if you ask me. The first PSA comes out today and there are more on the way.
The group leading the initiative is named “When We All Vote.” I am not impressed. It is staffed with prominent Obama alumni, including Valerie Jarrett as president of the board and former first lady chief of staff Tina Tchen as treasurer. Pete Rouse, an Obama senior adviser who served as interim White House chief of staff, will also be on the board. The CEO will be Kyle Lierman, a former senior policy adviser in the White House. This is another leftist Obama move to control the midterms. The group will be incorporated as a nonprofit, separate from the Obama Foundation, the personal offices of Barack and Michelle Obama, and Citizen 44, the LLC that the former president himself pays for to handle his own political involvement. But there are always connections that we don’t see in these groups. They are probably all connected in one way or another.
Lots of money and propaganda will be utilized to sway millennials to vote for Democrats. They are supposed to raise enough to fund an $8 million budget. Organizers plan to raise the money through corporate sponsorships and foundation grants. They intend to send personal messages to people urging them to register to vote. According to one document describing the group’s effort, it will partner with “outlets that young Americans use most.” Give me the youth and I’ll deliver an election. The new group is planning a series of events building up to a late-September crescendo of rallies and training. Along the way, there will be several voter registration days of action, followed by “GOTV days of action” as the elections approach.
Michelle Obama has been very careful when it comes to who she endorses on the left. She’s picky and very savvy when it comes to politically manipulating the Democratic Party. Some Democrats are anxious that they will come up short in November and they are questioning Michelle Obama’s decision to take herself off the campaign trail directly as a player. But there is definitely a game-plan here that Michelle is adhering to, I just don’t know what it is yet. Obama himself kidded at a Beverly Hills fundraiser last month for the Democratic National Committee that his wife was more popular than he is these days. I’m not sure that’s true, but it’s close. “You can’t afford Michelle,” Obama told the high-dollar crowd. Of that, I have no doubt.
“Mrs. Obama is really excited about this voter registration effort, and her fall schedule is still coming together,” said one person close to her. I would imagine that the Obamas are very involved in these midterms not only in the open but even more so behind the scenes. The Democrats can mope over Michelle’s seeming reticence at wanting to support her party, but I am positive that is all she is actually doing. She is also giving paid speeches and writing her 400-page memoir, “Becoming,” that is due out Nov. 13, a week after Election Day.
The voter registration drive fits with a larger theory about political engagement that Michelle shares with her husband; the more people who vote, they believe, the better it will be for Democrats overall. Obama will hit the campaign trail for candidates, but he also has been stressing nonpartisan engagement through his foundation. Forget about the Clinton machine, this is now the Obama machine. Dems should not fret, Michelle Obama will always be for the die-hard leftists of the Democratic Party.

Disgraced DeNiro Tries To Save His Career And Apologizes, Gets Priceless Response From Trump
Actor Robert De Niro decided to make an apology for ‘idiotic behavior’ and President Trump had a priceless response. De Niro was trying to show his softer side after galavanting at the Tony Awards and rising the crowd with his anti-American hate for Trump and his classic two-word statement of ‘f-ck Trump.’ He surely got an ovation from a crowd of millionaire celebrities who suffer low ratings for their award shows year after year. The response from Trump was simple. It was no response. Trump didn’t seem to care and if he heard about it at all, then he likely brushed it off.
De Niro’s apology wasn’t exactly to Trump, but it was against Trump. De Niro found himself saying sorry to Canada for Trump’s behavior (such as bringing peace among the Korea’s?) and then criticized Trump for the comments he made about Canada. Of course, this was directed toward Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who was recently seen with his fake eyebrow falling off in a viral video.
It sure seems like Robert De Niro really has it out for President Trump and certainly doesn’t seem to be a fan of his. Does De Niro have other motives that might explain his generic apology and his constant badgering of Trump? There just might be a reason for all of this.
This surely isn’t the first time that De Niro went on the offensive side of the mean words!
Daily Mail helped explain more about the De Niro apology.
“Robert De Niro has taken it upon himself and is apologizing to Canadians for the ‘idiotic behavior of my president’ just one day after the actor launched an expletive at Donald Trump at the Tony awards.
De Niro said Monday Trump’s remarks about Canada are a ‘disgrace’ and apologized to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and others who attended the Group of Seven summit of leaders in Canada.
‘I just want to make a note of apology for the idiotic behavior of my president,’ De Niro said as the audience of a few dozen cheered.
‘I apologize to Justin Trudeau and the other people at the G7,’ De Niro continued, ‘It’s disgusting.
Speaking after the actor, Toronto Mayor John Tory to say to him, ‘Thank you.’
Trump called Trudeau ‘dishonest’ and ‘weak’ following the summit on Saturday. Trump advisers also ripped Trudeau, branding him a back-stabber.
De Niro made his comments at a groundbreaking for a Nobu hotel in Toronto.
De Niro co-owns the chain, and the Toronto project will feature a restaurant, hotel and apartments that go for seven figures.
He, namesake chef Nobu Matsuhisa and their team used golden shovels to ceremonially break ground on the luxury project.
At the Tony awards, De Niro launched an expletive at Trump and pumped his arms like a boxer for emphasis.
‘F**k Trump’ he told the adoring audience.
Many in the audience stood and cheered, while TV censors quickly bleeped out the offending words.”
It seems like De Niro was using his distaste for Trump to get himself in the headlines again, because it seems very convenient that he was breaking ground at one of his restaurant/hotel projects. How ironic it is that he’s making anti-Trump comments and going viral just as he’s promoting his new business.
Is De Niro using his hatred for Trump to keep himself relevant so that the news and independent media outlets will mention his new projects? Is De Niro trying to use hatred to fuel the growth of his own businesses and save the end of his career in regards to his non-acting projects? That might be the case and the reason for all of De Niro’s constant insults and barrage of attacks that seemingly go unnoticed.
He’s like the male version of Rosie O’Donnell in the sense that they both constantly throw insults at President Trump and most of the time it comes out of nowhere and is unwarranted.
Should President Trump address the situation with Robert De Niro? Or should Trump ignore De Niro and worry about getting his job done as the President?
What would you do in this situation if you were Trump? Write your answers below!

Screaming Dem Mob Confronts McConnell In Restaurant, Man Slams Fists, Throws Food Out Door
Like Trump says, Dems bring mobs, we bring jobs.
Just another example of the left becoming completely unhinged.
McConnell took it all in stride & handled it with class, though, and other diners came to his defense!
Gateway Pundit is reporting:
“Crazed leftists took Maxine Waters’ marching orders and screamed at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) while he was dining with his wife, Elaine Chao at Havana Rumba in Louisville, Kentucky.
According to TMZ, 4 men were berating Mitch McConnell and the main aggressor slammed his fists on the Senator’s table screaming, “Why don’t you get out of here? Why don’t you leave the entire country?”
The left-wing thug also grabbed Mitch McConnell’s doggie bag of leftovers, and chucked it out the door of the restaurant.
Others were screaming, “Ditch Mitch!”
The woman who shot the video tells us, before she started recording, the main aggressor slammed his fists down on McConnell’s table, grabbed his doggie bag and threw the food out the door of the restaurant.
The woman says the main gripe seemed to be the Senator’s stance on Social Security and health care. McConnell recently said entitlement programs are the main cause of massive debt. The woman says before she started shooting, the main aggressor was screaming that McConnell was killing people with his views.
McConnell kept his cool and afterward thanked some of his supporters, shaking their hands.
Maxine Waters recently called on Democrats to form a mob to harass Republicans wherever they go.
“If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. You push back on them and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” Maxine Waters said.
Because of Maxine Waters’ call to violence, Mitch McConnell, Ted Cruz, Secretary Nielsen and other Republicans have been chased out of restaurants by angry Democrat mobs.
Vote red all the way down the ticket in Novemeber–we want jobs, not mobs!”
And Fox News said:
A small group of angry diners confronted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell at a restaurant Friday night, but were met with calls from other customers to leave the Kentucky Republican alone.
Video obtained by TMZ shows at least one diner berating McConnell on issues such as Social Security at a restaurant in Louisville. The video starts with him yelling at McConnell and arguing with Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao — to whom McConnell is married. The outlet reported that four men first confronted McConnell.
“Oh yeh, why don’t you get out of here? Why don’t you leave our entire country,” the protester tells the couple.
As Chao argues with the protester, McConnell appears nonplussed and sips on a drink. But other diners begin yelling at the protester, telling him to “leave him alone” and making shoo-ing gestures.
“They’re going to come for Social Security,” he told the other diners, before appearing to be approached by staff.
According to TMZ, the woman who recorded the incident said the protester slammed his fists on McConnell’s table and threw food out of the restaurant after accusing McConnell of killing people with his views. McConnell reportedly later thanked some of the supporters and shook their hands.
McConnell’s office did not immediately respond to request for comment from Fox News.
The incident marks the latest hounding of a Republican or Trump administration official from a restaurant. Last month Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, was forced out of a restaurant by protesters angry at his support of the confirmation of now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
McConnell and Chao were confronted by protesters earlier in the year as they left an event at Georgetown University. Chao stood up to the protesters and told them to “leave my husband alone.”
In July, McConnell was confronted by more protesters as he left a restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky. Protesters reportedly yelled “abolish ICE” and “no justice, no peace.”
