A Promised Land

If you would like to see and read an educated person speak his truth and hide nothing in the process, this is the book to purchase. It is refreshing to read something a book from a Great President of this time. With all the drama and racism his’ family had to deal with in the WH, shows how mature they truly are. He still managed to be a kind spirit to anyone and everyone he has met, so far. Compared to the people who have turned it into a Fun House, full of clowns. This book is very enlightening to his’ life and to his’ journey. So, thank you Mr. President for all of you and Ms. First Lady hard work! Keep up the good work, Mr. Obama. God bless you and your lovely family!

1 A Promised Land by Barack Obama – Trailer

14 nov. 2020

A riveting, deeply personal account of history in the making-from the president who inspired us to believe in the power of democracy

In the stirring, highly anticipated first volume of his presidential memoirs, Barack Obama tells the story of his improbable odyssey from young man searching for his identity to leader of the free world, describing in strikingly personal detail both his political education and the landmark moments of the first term of his historic presidency-a time of dramatic transformation and turmoil.

Obama takes readers on a compelling journey from his earliest political aspirations to the pivotal Iowa caucus victory that demonstrated the power of grassroots activism to the watershed night of November 4, 2008, when he was elected 44th president of the United States, becoming the first African American to hold the nation’s highest office.

Reflecting on the presidency, he offers a unique and thoughtful exploration of both the awesome reach and the limits of presidential power, as well as singular insights into the dynamics of U.S. partisan politics and international diplomacy. Obama brings readers inside the Oval Office and the White House Situation Room, and to Moscow, Cairo, Beijing, and points beyond. We are privy to his thoughts as he assembles his cabinet, wrestles with a global financial crisis, takes the measure of Vladimir Putin, overcomes seemingly insurmountable odds to secure passage of the Affordable Care Act, clashes with generals about U.S. strategy in Afghanistan, tackles Wall Street reform, responds to the devastating Deepwater Horizon blowout, and authorizes Operation Neptune’s Spear, which leads to the death of Osama bin Laden.

A Promised Land is extraordinarily intimate and introspective-the story of one man’s bet with history, the faith of a community organizer tested on the world stage. Obama is candid about the balancing act of running for office as a Black American, bearing the expectations of a generation buoyed by messages of “hope and change,” and meeting the moral challenges of high-stakes decision-making. He is frank about the forces that opposed him at home and abroad, open about how living in the White House affected his wife and daughters, and unafraid to reveal self-doubt and disappointment. Yet he never wavers from his belief that inside the great, ongoing American experiment, progress is always possible.

This beautifully written and powerful book captures Barack Obama’s conviction that democracy is not a gift from on high but something founded on empathy and common understanding and built together, day by day.

BARACK OBAMA was the 44th president of the United States, elected in November 2008 and holding office for two terms. He is the author of two previous New York Times bestselling books, Deams from My Father and The Audacity of Hope, and the recipient of the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize. He lives is Washington, D.C., with his wife, Michelle. They have to daughters, Malia and Sasha.    Obamabook.com

Omschrijving

In zijn eigen woorden vertelt Barack Obama in EEN BELOOFD LAND het verhaal van zijn onwaarschijnlijke odyssee van een jongeman die op zoek is naar zijn identiteit tot de leider van de vrije wereld, waarin hij in buitengewoon persoonlijke bewoordingen schrijft over de jaren waarin hij politiek werd gevormd en over de bepalende momenten in de eerste termijn van zijn historische presidentschap – een roerige periode vol dramatische veranderingen.
In dit boeiende en zeer persoonlijke verslag van de geschiedenis in wording, neemt Obama de lezer aan de hand op een fascinerende reis, die voert van zijn eerste politieke aspiraties en de cruciale overwinning in de voorverkiezingen van Iowa – waarin de kracht van grassroots activisme aan het licht kwam – tot de revolutionaire avond van 4 november 2008, toen hij tot 44ste president van de Verenigde Staten werd gekozen en daarmee de eerste Afro-Amerikaan werd die het hoogste ambt in het land zou bekleden.

In zijn bespiegelingen over het presidentschap toont hij op een bijzondere en scherpzinnige wijze welke mogelijkheden en beperkingen presidentiële macht met zich meebrengt, en daarnaast biedt hij ons een uniek inzicht in de dynamiek van de Amerikaanse partijpolitiek en de internationale diplomatie. Obama neemt de lezer mee tot in de Oval Office en de Situation Room van het Witte Huis, maar ook naar steden als Moskou, Caïro en Peking. We zijn getuige van zijn overwegingen als hij zijn kabinet samenstelt, worstelt met een mondiale financiële crisis, Vladimir Poetin inschat, schijnbaar onoverbrugbare conflicten beteugelt om zijn Wet op de gezondheidszorg te verwezenlijken, botst met zijn generaals over de te volgen strategie in Afghanistan, hervormingen op Wall Street doorvoert, doortastend optreedt na de ramp met de Deepwater Horizon en opdracht geeft tot Operatie Neptune’s Spear, die leidt tot de dood van Osama bin Laden.

EEN BELOOFD LAND is een bijzonder intiem en persoonlijk boek – het verhaal over een man die historische beslissingen neemt, over het rotsvaste geloof van de opbouwwerker die op de proef wordt gesteld op het wereldpodium. Obama is openhartig over de moeilijkheden die hij ondervond toen hij als zwarte Amerikaan president wilde worden, waarbij hij de verwachtingen verpersoonlijkte van een generatie die werd geïnspireerd door de boodschap van hoop en verandering en de morele problemen trotseerde die besluitvorming op het hoogste niveau met zich meebrengt. Obama is openhartig over de krachten die hem in eigen land en elders tegenwerkten, eerlijk over de invloed die het verblijf in het Witte Huis had op zijn vrouw en kinderen. Daarnaast is hij niet terughoudend in het delen van zijn onzekerheden en teleurstellingen. Toch wijkt hij nooit af van zijn overtuiging dat binnen het geweldige, zich voortdurend ontwikkelende Amerikaanse experiment vooruitgang altijd mogelijk is.

President Obama: ‘Het is een heerlijk gevoel de laatste hand te leggen aan een boek – en op dit boek ben ik trots. Ik heb de laatste jaren veel nagedacht over mijn presidentschap, en in EEN BELOOFD LAND heb ik geprobeerd op een eerlijke manier verslag te doen van de campagne en mijn presidentschap: de gebeurtenissen en mensen die bepalend bleken, mijn gedachten over de juiste beslissingen die ik nam en de fouten die ik maakte en de politieke, economische en culturele krachten waarmee mijn team en ik te maken kregen – en waar we in ons land nog steeds mee worstelen. Daarnaast heb ik geprobeerd de lezer te laten delen in het persoonlijke avontuur dat Michelle en ik in die jaren hebben beleefd, met alle ongelooflijke hoogte- en dieptepunten. Ten slotte laat ik in het boek, in een tijd waarin Amerika ongekend woelige tijden kent, mijn gedachten gaan over de vraag hoe we de verdeeldheid in het land het hoofd kunnen bieden, de weg voorwaarts kunnen hervinden en onze democratie in dienst kunnen stellen van iedereen – een taak die niet afhangt van de verrichtingen van een enkele president, maar waar we als betrokken burgers allemaal aan kunnen werken. Natuurlijk hoop ik dat het een leuk en informatief boek is, maar ik zou vooral graag willen dat het jonge mensen in het hele land – en in de hele wereld – ertoe aanzet het voortouw te nemen, hun stem te verheffen en zich in te zetten voor het verbeteren van de wereld.’

Many thanks to the New York Times for posting great interview. It attests the level of wisdom, calmness and far sightedness the Whitehouse occupant ought to have. The president clearly stated “The biggest impediment for the United States is not external but internal.”

There’s no way – even on his “best” day – you’d get an interview like this with Obama’s successor. Could you IMAGINE him delving into these issues with this much depth, background and articulation? Sigh….. I MISS having a president who knew what he was talking about, and sounded like it.

Barack Obama is at his zenith when he is speaking about people and bringing two divided sides together. My hope is that when he leaves the Oval Office, he will work on Civil Rights in America. I believe that he would be magnificent as the next Martin Luther King – as the next true leader and the dynamic impetus behind a cohesive, true ”Movement”. He’s the most natural presence in whatever room he happens to be in, he commands respect wherever he goes and people have confidence in his views, opinions and decisions.
Jason Caputo
Important to remember a time when a President could intelligently and openly (extremely) discuss and explain the complexities of the world without pushing their personal political agenda. Especially support his view that “our goal is, among other things, to help set up international institutions and norms.”

The US, UK and Australia invaded iraq and practically made the whole nation a lot worse than it was by using excessive military force.

He is allowing to the Iraqis to establish their own government without too much military intervention

Right,Obama. One example of your ideas of democracy is South, in Mexico. Before Pena Nieto was even confirmed by the results, you called to congratulate him on his victory. What does this mean?  The election was riddled with irregularities, vote buying, immersive funding by illegal sources, and NGO’s observing the election report illegal practices that anyone in the U.S. would recognize as an antidemocratic processes. Why does Obama and the U.S. support this? Because it follows the U.S’s neoliberal economic model…

You can tell that Obama isn’t talking to Friedman but to the Iraqis and Kurds. I think that these are things that the President has told them in private, maybe through diplomats, and that this interview was to show that he means it. This is achieved by Obama coming out public and essentially “burning the bridge” of the idea that the US will always bail them out. That’s why he chose to do the interview with this gentleman, Friedman, someone who’ll let Obama speak and will be compliant.

From the look on his face it appears that either he is under fed or under slept or may be both. If he sleeps less than his brain is supposed to function less. An American new president gets a 4 year term,where he remains an apprentice for 1 to 2 years depending on who is holding the top job. I think it is time to think whether the US can really afford this in this fast & complicated world

President Obama is right. Why are American people so eager for the U.S. to use military force. The military should be the last resort to solve conflicts.

In the end none of this matters. This is all about power! America is the most powerful country in the world by far but ask yourselves this, how many countries are getting sick and tired of America doing what ever they want when ever they want? In the end there is only death. Why spend the precious little amount of time you have here on earth fighting!? REDICULOUS! But that’s just my opinion, I’m entitled to it just like you’re entitled to yours!

I can’t believe how cynical obama is. “We are the sole major power”, “We are the most powerful”, power power power…

“The Republicans can’t even pass their own agenda.” Obama calling it LIKE IT IS. Almost all of their legislation has tanked and FAILED this year. Thank god.
Nancy Witmer
Thank you for showing this interview, President Obama Is such a thoughtful good person.

The country owes this president a huge debt of gratitude. He took office with unemployment at 9%, Bin Laden in hiding plotting against us, an economy in free-fall, a failing US auto industry, and more challenges than I can list. The brotha fixed that.
Jeannie Carmona
Wow just a wonderful president, I miss a President trying to complete a sentence, aka trump , I miss them completing a sentence or boasting about what a king Trump is lol,President Obama was one of the best presidents in our country, no wonder Trump is so jealous, Obama has it all.

Great interview! Thank you President Obama.

I will truly miss him, he’s very thoughtful, purposeful, elegant, and an overall genuine person. These are not traits one can forge, one either is or isn’t. I began college when you were elected and thanks in part to your leadership and resiliency I have an amazing career in DC and my loans in the process of being forgiven. It wasn’t easy, but I busted my a** but here I am. Thank you Mr. President.

I have nothing but love and admiration for Obama. It really bothers me deep in my heart when all these people are so ungrateful for his work and efforts. They blame him for everything.
Adam Chase
Despite my policy views as a moderate Republican, I’m not quite sure why there is such hatred harbored by the right for this man. Have we any civility? I can’t imagine it being difficult to cooperate on a bipartisan level to assuage our problems?
Ayesha Karim
I voted for President Obama both times and he’s a great leader. The media give him a difficult time but I think he is a good man and a great President. When Obama goes out of office there will be at least 20 books written about him and his historic Presidency.
Jacob Markham
“I think the Republican Party will be out of this in 10-15 years” Sorry Mr. President, you were wrong.
sfbluestar
Loss of elective offices of all levels for Democrats, capping with the office of the POTUS. That’s the theme of Obama years.
Steve Holland
Could you even imagine Trump trying to have a discussion like that ?
Thikra Taha
He mentioned automation before it was introduced in the media, let alone politics. Miss you bruv…
Jim Alvarez
It’s sad that Obama will more likely be remembered for his shortcomings than his strengths, despite the fact that the latter, by far, outnumber the former. He is so charismatic, and is very perceptive on what America’s beliefs are. He may not be a great president, but he’s a good president, and an even better person. Intelligent and pragmatic. He embodies much of what a president should be. Nothing but respect for the man.
Biskit
Obama always seemed to me like a very down to earth guy, who’s also much smarter than most of the other politicians. No idea why people hate him so much.
Alex Ferreira
Love him or hate him… at least he can talk .

How offensive to say that by expressing concern for, and general interest in, helping and defending people being hurt economically by globalization is simply “tapping into fear.” By that reasoning standing up for transgender people, blacks, hispanics is simply “tapping into fear”. Just throw up your hands, he implicitly suggests, you can’t stop any force that is acting upon you. It’s not just offensive, it’s defeatest, which is totally UN-American.
srikar
Truly inspirational…
Anders Larsen
That’s why unions are important. They leverage the weak bargaining power of low skilled workers. Here in Scandinavia where we have strong unions the corporations are trying to mitigate this by trying to introduce a new model where there are no employees and all former employees will be “subcontractors” making invoices to their former employer. This is an attempt to not only weaken the bargaining power of unions but also to try increase competition among individual workers. I think that’s wonderful, because as a provider of legal counseling I will have many new customers in the future, because they will all try to minimize their tax burden now that they are forced to be “self-employed” (just like any business would). The demand for shell companies outside EU jurisdiction will explode from all these former employees, now “self-employed” workers. Soon there will be no one to pay for education, hospitals, healthcare, infrastructure etc.

Given a more amiable political environment and a functioning Congress, I think Obama could have been a great president. Many of his signature accomplishments (ACA, Stimulus, Dodd–-Frank, etc) were failures due to lobbyist/corporate involvement or fruitless compromises with the GOP, not to mention his continuation of some of Bush’s failed policies (drone wars, tax cuts, TARP, etc). He has some successes too (repealing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, allowing federally funded stem cell research, etc), but not nearly enough to call this presidency a great one. That said, we haven’t had a truly great president since FDR, in my opinion, because so much of the focus of a presidency is driven by the corrupted media, which has only been an issue since the mid 20th century. A more responsible news media would go along way to improve our politics.

I would be really appreciate if Obama were my president.

Regardless of what you think of his politics- he’s a fantastic Orator.
Suzanne Sands
Reading the comments, Democrats are very easy to impress. Obama is simply presenting a basic, 101 analysis of what’s going on in our economy and society and politics. This is pedestrian stuff for not Republican politicians, but for Republican voters. And Democrats are so uninformed that they think he’s a genius. Now THAT explains the divide in our country.

He talks great but he’s lying throughout this interview. He didn’t try to fight for anything he said he did.

I salute you Mr.President for making us, the men and women in duty, proud to serve our country. You have not only improved the US Economy, but also the state of living in the US for millions of people. You have been a role model to us and to many leaders around the world. My time in line of duty in oversees, before you came in office compared to now has only improved. We are respected and taken seriously in the world. Thank you Mr.President, it is an honour serving you.

josoverthehill
I hate comparing presidents who have not been out of office at least a generation – because you need that long simply to see how their policies worked (or didn’t work) over time. You can’t judge with a pragmatic eye the current or immediate former administrations non-critically because of that. However, I think one comparison that CAN be made now is the “slow-go” policies of Obama compared to the “I-want-it-now” policies of DT. Obama’s critics constantly slammed him (as they do to this day) that the economic recovery after the recession was too long, too slow and not enough. DT ripped away all the safety measures carefully put in place, and while some can argue that the economy took off because of that – as DT has endlessly bragged about – he also lost every single penny  – AND MORE – of the wealth that was generated since his inauguration because of his slow response to the Covid-19 pandemic. Obama’s policies took time – over his entire eight years in office. DT’s wiped out more than 30% of the stock market in just under one month. Again, time is needed to see how we recover (if we do) from this pandemic, but I have a sneaking suspicion that it won’t get hit the same trajectory as it did when Obama was in office. And DT DIDN’T have a recession to start with, either.

18 Barack Obama meets Marcus Rashford | In conversation

Back to menu

28 mei 2021


President Barack Obama and football icon Marcus Rashford sit down with June Sarpong to discuss campaigning, food poverty and the role that reading has played in their lives.

In the stirring, highly anticipated first volume of his presidential memoirs, Barack Obama tells the story of his improbable odyssey from young man searching for his identity to leader of the free world, describing in strikingly personal detail both his political education and the landmark moments of the first term of his historic presidency-a time of dramatic transformation and turmoil.

Obama takes readers on a compelling journey from his earliest political aspirations to the pivotal Iowa caucus victory that demonstrated the power of grassroots activism to the watershed night of November 4, 2008, when he was elected 44th president of the United States, becoming the first African American to hold the nation’s highest office.

Reflecting on the presidency, he offers a unique and thoughtful exploration of both the awesome reach and the limits of presidential power, as well as singular insights into the dynamics of U.S. partisan politics and international diplomacy. Obama brings readers inside the Oval Office and the White House Situation Room, and to Moscow, Cairo, Beijing, and points beyond. We are privy to his thoughts as he assembles his cabinet, wrestles with a global financial crisis, takes the measure of Vladimir Putin, overcomes seemingly insurmountable odds to secure passage of the Affordable Care Act, clashes with generals about U.S. strategy in Afghanistan, tackles Wall Street reform, responds to the devastating Deepwater Horizon blowout, and authorizes Operation Neptune’s Spear, which leads to the death of Osama bin Laden.

A Promised Land is extraordinarily intimate and introspective-the story of one man’s bet with history, the faith of a community organizer tested on the world stage. Obama is candid about the balancing act of running for office as a Black American, bearing the expectations of a generation buoyed by messages of “hope and change,” and meeting the moral challenges of high-stakes decision-making. He is frank about the forces that opposed him at home and abroad, open about how living in the White House affected his wife and daughters, and unafraid to reveal self-doubt and disappointment. Yet he never wavers from his belief that inside the great, ongoing American experiment, progress is always possible.

This beautifully written and powerful book captures Barack Obama’s conviction that democracy is not a gift from on high but something founded on empathy and common understanding and built together, day by day.

Marcus Rashford is an innately decent human being. They’re rare to begin with, rarer in the circles of people as successful and or influential as he is, and rarer still in the times we live in. We’re extremely lucky to have him.
Oliver Wiggin
I truly admire Marcus’ level headedness and ambition to make positive change in his community and the country as a whole. He’s using his platform for good when he could be a 23 year old millionaire just enjoying his life. Very inspirational young man, and I’m extremely intrigued to see what he makes of his future post football.

Obama is a cool dude, Could not imagine talking to anyone who has been in a similar position to him – but obama is a cool, calming man who looks so easy to talk to , and he listens. As for marcus, proud of him, I’m glad he uses social media to do good and not just use it to make money or grow your ego. Intelligent sportsman meets Intelligent president – great video.

I love Marcus Rashford, he’s an inspirational young man even for someone a good decade older than him. He’s the best of British to borrow that old phrase. President Obama, as a Briton I love him too. Such a decent man who achieved a lot in one of the most difficult jobs despite getting things wrong as all presidents/prime ministers do.

I got inspired with you #RashfordMeetsObama and the lady interviewing. hats-off. I just watched this video today but I couldn´t an hour to subscribe myself to this channel.

First of all thank you for the great interview between Marcus and Obama. I have 2 points. 1- absolutely great speech by the former president , with few words it gives a lot of ideas. 2- Marcus even if your book is great and you help feeding the poor people, the problems are not solved, you can’t change our planet’s population just by writing a book in English language, this book won’t affect other people’s life who cannot read it or not even allowed to learn about your book where they live. Again the book is great but it has very small effect..( here is a good example, you feed the poor , but you forgot how to solve the main problem which is why people become poor in the first place? ) I think solving problems should be done by finding the main cell that causes the problem and heal it. Thank you.
