Michelle Obama is in the news again.

It doesn't surprise us --- one of my writers has said for two years that the former First Lady would be on the ticket for 2020 --- but Michelle O is starting to take a higher profile now that doubts are being expressed more publicly about Joe Biden’s mental decline. We know that even if he makes it across the finish line to Election Day and (shudder) wins, the new VP will be taking his place soon in the Oval Office. Biden won’t be able to find the Oval Office, or tell an oval from a rectangle.

Putting Michelle –- or someone, but probably her –- in at the last minute was likely the plan all along. She’s black, she’s female, she's famous, there won't be much time to take a hard look, and for many Democrats and possibly independents, she puts an appealing and, yes, moderate face on the increasingly radical Democrat Party, a friendly image that they very badly need now. She’s been voted the Most Admired Woman in America, and even Most Admired worldwide! But Michelle Obama is NOT in the mainstream.

Watch, though, how she can take a leftist goal like income redistribution and skillfully finesse it to make it seem downright middle-of-the-road. Wednesday, in her new podcast (yes, she has a new podcast), she did just that in a conversation with Michele Norris. She called coronavirus an opportunity to think about “how wealth is distributed” to lower-income essential workers.

Read the transcript, and you’ll see how she lays the groundwork for “thinking” about wealth in a different way. “...We have to think about that [being essential],” she says, “in terms of how wealth is distributed.” As she goes on about this, it sounds so reasonable, so thoughtful, so compassionate, until you realize that the solution to this, in the mind of anyone on the left, will be a monstrous government program involving large-scale bureaucratically-calibrated income redistribution, with more pages of regulations than in Obamacare (which is a good real-world example of what I’m talking about).

Michelle even helps us understand why nothing in the budget is ever cut. “...All the things that we look to cut were put in place in response to some crisis.” I see. That’s why, once we have a government program, we can NEVER cut it. The crisis never goes away, so we always have to keep it as-is (or bigger).

More: “...We actually have power; we can...change so much of what we do, we can sacrifice a little more...we can shift priorities, and not just in our own lives, ‘cause IT’S NOT ENOUGH TO JUST DO IT IN YOUR OWN LIFE IF YOU’RE NOT WILLING TO DO IT IN OUR BROADER POLICY.” (Emphasis mine.) In other words, out of compassion, we have to force everyone to do what we would have them do. This kind of thinking can be used to rationalize all kinds of control and taken to tremendous lengths. Goodbye freedom.

"It’s in our country’s DNA to step up,” she says. But she warns that this is “always with great opposition, because you’re asking people to sacrifice, to give up things that, that they think they deserve, that they’re entitled to, for the sake of the greater good.”

See how she subtly suggests that the “opposition” is against personal sacrifice and the greater good? Why, some people are just selfish, that’s what they are, thinking they deserve things. We’ll decide who deserves things! And to do that, we’ll have to force everyone into a “broader policy.”

Beware. Someone with this kind of skill, teamed with the more pushy radicals like AOC and "the Squad," could take control of just about everything in your life. Trump 2020!

    People that have worked hard to make their fortune, do not have to give it away. But, possibly the US system that allows democrats to come to political power and become rich, should be better ruled. If that were the case, people like the Clinton's and the Obama's with banned Attorney licenses would go back to the poor whole from where they came out off. All that money should go back to the people, the constituents in need.

    What she is is postulating is a program of MARXISM, SOCIALISM, AND COMMUNISM. WONDER NOW THAT THIS CRETIN AND TRAITOR WILL SHARE THE WEALTH THEY GOT FOR 8 YRS PLUS.

    So tell me, Mrs. Obama, how much of your wealth do you intend on sharing with the less fortunate? How much of your wealth do you plan on giving Senior Citizens on the fixed income of Social Security? Hoe much of your wealth do you plan on contributing to Medicare Part B to help Senior Citizens? How much of your wealth do you intend to give the disabled?

    A typical D.C. shyster lawyer, suddenly an expert on everything . With joey destined to get lost in his basement John, MOOchie and pussyman return to regain the throne for a second go-round. The DNC "plan" emerges.

    I'm pretty sure Michelle and the squad would decide who deserves what based on race. Since they are all about reparations.

    Christianity tells its believers to give freely as the Holy Spirit leads. Communism (the awful perversion of Christianity) has the wealthy leaders stealing from the working class to give to whoever they choose (mostly to procure votes) while they pad their own pockets.
    Hey, Michelle. Why do you be the first to give a big chunk of your ill-gotten gain to those in need! And keep your hands out of our pockets!

    For the sake of the greater good, I would like you to open your new mansion in Cape Cod and your palace in Chicago to all those who are less fortunate than yourself. That being said, every time you make a million bucks on a book signing or corporate speech I think you should give it all to the people who are living on the streets across America. Your love of socialism inspires me to watch what you do to redistribute your wealth first.

    Great editorial, Mike! Michelle O. is a bold face, left wing radical just like her hubby, AOC, Sanders and others I can't stomach to mention. Pure Alinsky rhetoric, spewing condescension for the good of the people. We were all waiting for her to tell us what we should be willing to give up after we worked for it, isn't that right Michelle the Militant? Her estate on Martha's Vineyard begs the question - what are YOU prepared to give up that you did not earn? Oh, that's right - being a Marxist has its perks! Trump 2020!

    I would agree with Mrs.Kennedy with what she told her son Ted, you give away your boat not mine.

    How about having Michelle step up and redistribute HER wealth? Or stop giving handouts to non workers from the hands of those who worked for what they want and need?
    I remember wanting something when I was a teen. Did parents GIVE it to me? No! I worked till I earned money to buy it!

    Obama’s need to get off the stage, they are so rude to talk against President Trump! Don’t know if any former president who’s done this. Read I Timothy 4:1-5

    This is undoubtedly the scariest post I've read. She is telling us they will take what we have worked for and give it to the people who have not worked. God will not allow that yet...until Jesus is ready to come back.

    Dont see 5he Obamas, Pelosi Harris's, Bidens or even the Clintons "stepping up" ti redistribute their 10's - 100's of millions in wealth to those who need it?
    Be careful peoe. Read the constitution. If this election is contested bc no clear winner or lawsuits on both sides, there comes a time that the lerson 3rd in charge - the Speaker of the House - steps in as the interim President!!! Once in how will we ever get her out!!!???
