The Obamas were worth just north of a million before heading to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. in January 2009.

Any guesses as to how much they’re worth today?

Take a shot…

From LMT Online:

These endeavors — along with the six-figure pension all former presidents receive — have significantly contributed to the Obamas’ net worth, which is at least $40 million, according to a 2018 GoBankingRates estimate. The New York Post recently pegged their fortune much higher, at $135 million.

Now, the couple are set to earn even more thanks to a deal with Spotify.

From Fast Company:

Remember back in 2017 when Spotify created a position of President of Playlists that had Barack Obama’s name written all over it? Well, President Obama didn’t take that job, but he is now working at Spotify.

Today, Spotify announced that Barack and Michelle Obama’s production company, Higher Ground, has signed a partnership deal to produce podcasts that are exclusive to the streaming platform. The podcast deal is similar to the production deal the Obamas signed with Netflix. In the multi-year Spotify deal, the Obamas will develop, produce, and “lend their voices” (guessing that means host?) to select podcasts on a variety of topics. The podcast deal extends their storytelling and their mission to lift up new, diverse voices from film and television to the audio world. (And don’t tell Luminary, but this might mean that Spotify is actually the Netflix of podcasts.)

Michelle says President Trump has put her “family’s safety at risk” in an excerpt from her book.

Why?

Because she’s trying to sell a book, no doubt.

Otherwise, it makes little sense.

Here’s what she wrote:

“What if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drove to Washington? What if that person went looking for our girls?” she wrote in her book, according to The Washington Post. “Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family’s safety at risk. And for this I’d never forgive him.”

Enter Trump, who goes for the jugular – mostly aimed at Barack:

Trump explains how Obama depleted the military during his eight years in the Oval Office. Michelle, it would seem, is seeking to make headlines.

She wants to continue to divide the nation as she and her husband have done since 2008.

She is smart. Very smart.

Like, smarter than every person she’s ever been around. At least, that’s how she made it sound.

While in London, Michelle’s arrogance was on full display.

She noted, “I have been at probably every powerful table that you can think of, I have worked at nonprofits, I have been at foundations, I have worked in corporations, served on corporate boards, I have been at G-summits, I have sat in at the U.N.: They are not that smart.

Michelle added, “We mistakenly thought that Barack Obama was going to erase hundreds of years in history in eight years—that’s ridiculous to think that could happen.

Save conservative media!

DOJ Making Moves To Break Up Google, Calling It The ‘Most Important Antitrust Case In A Generation’

Published

on

The Department of Justice is moving to file an antitrust lawsuit against Big Tech company Google on Tuesday after a very thorough investigation was launched into the company over alleged monopolistic behavior. This lawsuit will allege that Google has been engaging in practices deemed to be “anticompetitive” in order to help insulate and protect its search and search-advertising businesses, according to a source from the Justice Department. via Daily Wire: Google has frozen out competitors through contracts between the tech giant and browsers, carriers, and mobile phone manufacturers that give Google such prime standing as the default search engine across a variety of platforms as to bar any competitors from beginning to compete with the tech giant. Googles search queries make up roughly 80% of all those in the U.S. Google has argued in the past that billions of people choosing to use its product every day is evidence of the company’s competitive edge, not monopolistic behavior. The legal battle between the tech giant and the U.S. government is likely to span years. The lawsuit follows an investigation into the company that lasted for more than a year and took place in a wider investigation into Silicon Valley tech giants for alleged anticompetitive practices. The president himself has been among the most ardent voices speaking out about the monopolistic behavior of tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, as well as drawing attention to their censorship of conservative views. Some of Trump’s most loyal supporters, like Sen. Josh Hawley, were very pleased to hear about the lawsuit. “Today’s lawsuit is the most important antitrust case in a generation. Google and its fellow Big Tech monopolists exercise unprecedented power over the lives of ordinary Americans, controlling everything from the news we read to the security of our most personal information,” the…

Trump Tells Barr To ‘Act Fast’ And ‘Appoint Somebody’ To Look Into Hunter Biden Business Dealings

Published

on

President Donald Trump told Attorney General William Barr on Tuesday that he needs to “act” and “appoint somebody” to start digging into Hunter Biden’s rather shady business dealings. The urging comes after almost a dozen GOP House members have been suggesting the president tap a special counsel to launch an investigation into all of the alleged documentation and information that was recently pulled from a water damaged laptop believed to have belonged to the younger Biden. The president mentioned all of this during an interview on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday morning where he slammed Joe Biden and his son saying he “walked around like a vacuum.” via Fox News: “This is the laptop from hell,” Trump said. “Even if he didn’t get all of this money, you can’t go to China and have the son walk out with $1.5 billion. … You can’t go to Ukraine with $83,000 a month. … You can’t get $3.5 million from the mayor of Moscow’s wife.” “And you didn’t have a job before your father was vice president,” Trump continued. “You can’t go and go with your father and every stop you make, you pick up $1 billion.” He added: “The vice president got a kickback, and everybody knows it, and they’ve known it a long time.” One of the emails that supposedly belongs to Hunter Biden, which was obtained by Fox News, is dated for May 13, 2017, and includes talk of “renumeration packages” for six different individuals involved in a business deal with a Chinese energy company. According to the message, Hunter Biden is the “Chair/Vice Chair depending on an agreement with CEFC,” which was a reference to the now-bankrupt CEFC China Energy Company. That same message also contains a note that says “Hunter has some office expectations he will elaborate.” There’s…
