A few months ago it was announced that Barack Hussein Obama was going to get a $60 million advance for a book about his presidency. This is by far the most that any ex-president has received for a book. The next highest figure was Bill Clinton’s $15 million for a book released way back in 2004.
The big problem with Obama’s deal is that the publishing company is probably going to lose a lot of money. After all, who is going to buy an expensive book about Obama’s presidency to earn back $60 million?
Answer: Not anywhere near enough people, Nikitas3.com predicts. But that is irrelevant since Nikitas3.com also believes that much of that $60 million is “funny money” that is being funneled to Obama from a left-wing publishing industry and from mega-rich donors who are ‘laundering’ contributions to Obama through the publishing company. This is being done to give Obama a comfortable income to live on.
This would be like the $14 million that Hillary Clinton got back in 2013 for her book about her tenure as secretary of state, whose pitiful sales never came close to earning back that $14 million.
Democrat House leader Nancy Pelosi famously wrote a book that almost nobody bought (3,000 copies sold) despite her national profile. Meanwhile conservative books are selling like hotcakes despite being ignored by the mainstream media.
But no problem. After all, we know that Democrats are “the party of the rich” and that rich Democrats who control so much of our economy and the media want to keep their political representatives living well and have more than enough money to do so.
Yet most Americans continue to swallow the media myth that all of the rich people are Republicans. This is the opposite of the truth. Here are eight of the mega-wealthiest people in America who are all committed to Obama and his agenda – Jeff Bezos, Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, Larry Ellison, Mark Zuckerberg, Larry Page and Sergey Brin (of Google) and Michael Bloomberg (former mayor of New York City and founder of Bloomberg News).
On the other hand there are two conservatives on the Top 10 list – the Koch Brothers – but their combined wealth ($45 billion) is half of Bezos’ wealth alone ($90 billion). In fact the combined wealth of the leftists on the list is more than 10 times that of the Koch Brothers, yet all we hear over and over is how the Koch Brothers are swaying elections and that no other rich people are having any impact whatsoever. This is a flat-out lie.
There recently was a story on Fox News called Obamas under fire from the left for never ending, sizzling ultra-luxury vacations Yet we conservatives all knew know that Obama was planning to live a life of luxury after he left the White House. Here are some excerpts from the Fox News article with a Nikitas3.com comment after each:
Fox News reports: The Democratic base is growing increasingly frustrated with former President Barack Obama’s actions after leaving office, including a seemingly endless tour of millionaire and billionaire luxury retreats, according to Democrats and activists contacted by Fox News.
Ex-presidents, understandably and un-controversially, go on vacations immediately after leaving office. But the level of luxury the Obamas enjoy on their vacations is unprecedented for a modern-day president, say travel experts.
Since leaving office in late January, Obama has visited late actor Marlon Brando’s private island; the Four Seasons in Bali — where rooms cost upward of $2,000 per night; a Palm Springs estate; Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island; the exclusive Mid Pacific Country Club in Oahu; the 13th-century Borgo Finocchieto in Tuscany; and the Rising Sun, Hollywood studio mogul David Geffen’s private yacht.
Nikitas3.com comment: No surprise here. The Obamas are obsessed with money and prestige, like all socialists are. They were worth about $12 million when they left the White House last January. When they add on the $60 million book deal, their wealth increases significantly. Then we will see Obama get highly-paid appointments to corporate boards, astronomical speaking fees, and other deals. We already are.
And for the rest of his life Obama is going to be welcomed at the most elite homes and resorts in the world. He will be treated like a filthy rich man since he represented and protected filthy rich socialists as president while the middle class shrank and the poorer classes expanded.
Fox News reports: “These trips are like the lifestyles of the rich and famous,” said Democratic strategist Pat Caddell. The former adviser to ex-President Jimmy Carter believes that President Obama’s vacations are unprecedented, and a far cry from how Carter spent his first few months out of office. “I think the Bernie Sanders wing of the party, when they see President Obama, whom they instinctively want to defend, being the corporatist president, I think it makes the base uneasy,” said Caddell.
Nikitas3.com comment: Uneasy? It should make them hysterical. But not since Obama is a Democrat. Meanwhile:
*Ronald Reagan was worth $13 million when he left office and he earned $2 million after he left the White House but was savaged throughout his career as a “rich Republican”. In fact when Reagan earned that $2 million for speaking in Japan right after leaving the presidency the media and Democrats went bonkers. But they were silent when Obama got $60 million. (The entertainer Cher is worth more than $300 million today.)
*George W. Bush has been smeared for decades as a “rich Republican” even though his total net worth is about $25 million while Obama-lover Warren Buffett is worth almost 3,000 times as much ($73 billion).
*Most of the $1 billion Kennedy family fortune came from stock market fraud in the 1920s by the family patriarch Joseph P. Kennedy. The media and Democrats ignore this fact. That type of fraud caused the market crash of 1929, which triggered the depression of the 1930s, ruining tens of millions of American lives. In other words the Kennedys got rich on the backs of thousands of “little guy” investors who lost their shirts, and on the backs of all of those Americans who were ruined in the depression.
*Meanwhile Donald Trump built his net worth (as much as $9 billion) in a perfectly honest fashion in real estate over 50 years in business. That is why his wealth cannot disappear overnight as the wealth of some “rich” liberals has evaporated, like Bill Clinton’s son-in-law whose hedge fund collapsed in December 2016 shortly after Hillary lost the election.
*Democrat Lyndon Johnson, who served as US president from 1963 to 1969, is considered to have been our most corrupt president ever. His net worth is estimated in today’s dollars at over $100 million. He even blatantly stole his first election in 1948 to the US Senate from Texas and was solely responsible for the massive American involvement in the Vietnam War, including 58,000 US military deaths and hundreds of thousands injured, many grievously.
*US president Franklin D. Roosevelt was a wealthy Democrat whose fortune in today’s dollars would be $66 million. He got his family wealth from his maternal grandfather Warren Delano who got rich shipping opium into China.
*Bill and Hillary Clinton are estimated to be worth more than $150 million, mostly earned from speeches that they have been making for $250,000 or more each. We know that these speech payments were simply being made to buy influence with the Clintons… until Hillary lost, that is.
*Al Gore is worth more than $200 million, which he got largely from the sale of his failed cable TV network in a shady deal to the pro-Islamist Middle Eastern TV network Al Jazeera (based in pro-terrorist Qatar).
*Republican president Calvin Coolidge, on the other hand, was worth less than $1 million in today’s dollars when he died at age 60 in 1933.
Fox News reports: The president’s press team didn’t want to go on the record since Obama is a private citizen and it doesn’t comment on his personal schedule or private outings with his family. But a former Obama White House official did tell Fox News that the president dedicated his entire career to working to “level the playing field and provide ladders of opportunity for those hardest hit by the economy.”
Nikitas3.com comment: Obama did no such thing. Poverty spread widely under his presidency. Food stamp dependency increased 50% nationwide. The national debt more than doubled precisely as his super-rich friends got much, much richer. The numbers tell the truth, and now Obama’s behavior reveals where his heart really lies. You won’t find Obama at Motel 6 in Ocean City.
Fox News reports: One of (Obama’s) first actions after leaving office was to mentor young men from Chicago’s south side who are in a job training program called “CRED”…
Nikitas3.com comment: Oh, sure, he “mentored” in a job training program, i.e., he showed up for an hour for the TV cameras and got millions of dollars worth of slobbering nationwide media coverage. This is like Jimmy Carter who shows up at Habitat for Humanity sites, hammers a few nails and gets fawning media exposure. What a joke.
Fox News reports: The Obama team also told Fox News that the president most recently released a Facebook post about the current debate in Washington around the future of health care. “The Senate bill, unveiled today, is not a health care bill,” Obama wrote. “It’s a massive transfer of wealth from middle-class and poor families to the richest people in America.”
Nikitas3.com comment: No, that is what Obamacare has done. Obamacare is a disaster; look at the actual figures today. Now the CBO report says that that the repeal of Obamacare would lead to 22 million people losing their health insurance. This is a fake number pulled out of the air by a partisan agency. Meanwhile one 2010 study showed that Obamacare itself could lead to 93 million Americans losing their policies, but Obamacare was passed anyway and the number ended up at 6 million.
