Dinesh D’Souza book
yanked from Costco shelves

Washington Times, by Cheryl K. Chumley

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/8/2014 10:38:42 AM

Costco has suddenly — and according to author Dinesh D’Souza, inexplicably —booted his book from stores nationwide, ordering chain operators to clear their shelves of “America: Imagine a World Without Her” by July 15. Mr. D’Souza said roughly 3,600 copies of his newest release has sold at Costco already, but he has no idea why the chain refuses to sell more. “We’re in the process of finding out what’s happening,” he told WND. “I look forward to getting to the bottom of this and continuing the strong relationship my publisher and I have always had with Costco and their millions

It looks like it´s time for a boycott!! Those weasels can´t handle the truth! That only makes them look bad.

This sounds like a refusal to sell which smells like the work of Her Thighness. Is she jealous that Dinesh is selling more books.

Well, wait a minute. This story is based on the WND story, which may or may nor be accurate. There isn´t any additional information yet.

I don´t shop at Costco, so I don´t have to boycott it. It´s true they´re a huge contributor to the Democratic Party.

The founder of Costco is a huge obama supporter and donor and fundraiser for him. That´s the answer why the book are being pulled.

The link below gives information that Cosco addressed this on Facebook. They said it was removed because it didn´t meet the "necessary thresholds" to continue to stock the book.

I went to Costco to investigate--and sure enough there was a blank row where Dinesh´s book was...

There were TWO rows of Hillary´s book (which isn´t selling at all). As usual, I took some other books and covered Hildabeast´s book and hideous mug...

There isn´t any comment from Costco itself about this matter on their Facebook page, at least none that I can find. They ARE getting criticism from the public about the WND article. But they haven´t responded to it, and they haven´t clarified the issue from their end.

If they were going to yank the book, they wouldn´t let it sit on the shelves till July 15.

Costco carries relatively few books, and the ones it does carry, it doesn´t keep on display for long, so as to make way for new stock. If they´re de-listing the book on July 15, it´s to make way for something new.

If this is true, get out there and picket or YOU are part of the problem! Here are some suggestions for signs:
Hillary Rodham Clinton: “I´m sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and disagree with this administration, somehow you´re not patriotic. We need to stand up and say we´re Americans, and we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration.” Why has Costco REMOVED D´Souza´s book AMERICA?
"I like to read differing viewpoints. Don´t YOU?"
or the best one of all, suggested by an LDotter on another thread:
"D-Souza´s AMERICA available at Sam´s Club"
Probably it´s a good idea to stay on public property, adjacent to the store or parking lot.

If the book was released June 2, and Costco chain-wide has only sold 3600 copies, it might indeed be strictly a marketing decision. I´m going to believe that, because I´ve seen numerous other "conservative" titles being sold at Costco over the years.

(I´m a Costco member and made an inquiry several years back when it was reported that "Costco" was donating to the Obama campaign. They sent back a reply - one of the founders of the company is very involved in Democratic politics, and he was donating out of his own pocket, it was not a corporate thing. Perhaps they were just trying to assuage me.)

Well, judging from many of the replies, it is true. Thresholds? You mean like how miserably Hitlary´s book is doing? Yet, it still fills two rows according to one shopper.

That´s fine. Like was said above, Costco can play politics, but so can I. Neither myself nor my money will darken their doorways again. They made it clear where they stand. So shall I.

When will businesses learn to stay out of politics? Actions have consquences. Just ask Chik Fil-et.

Whoever made this "marketing decision" picked a poor time in America´s history to get a wild hair.

Hopefully, they will feel it where it counts. In the money bags.

#20, Chik Fil-A wasn´t playing politics. The owner simply made a statement about traditional marriage in an interview. It was the leftists and the sodomites who made it political - and it backfired in their faces. Chik Fil-A has been breaking sales records ever since.

I bought Mark Levin´s books there, as well as the Rush Revere books. They do carry conservative books.

They also carried that nasty Fifty Shades of Grey book, too, but they gave that plenty of space despite it looking as if nobody was buying--the piles just sat there for weeks.

The book only sold (on averaqe) five copies per store over the course of five weeks. (There are 640 Costco outlets; divide that into 3600 copies.) It´s not worth it to Costco to keep it on the tables. They´re still selling Rush Limbaugh´s book.

It was a marketing decision on the store´s part--if it´s actually happened. But D´Souza is very, very shrewd to try to turn it into a conspiracy. The publicity will boost sales elsewhere.

An extraordinary item from Peter Baker in the New York Times: WASHINGTON — President Obama must be touched by all the concern Republicans are showing him these days. As Congress examines security breaches at the White House, even opposition lawmakers who have spent the last six years fighting his every initiative have expressed deep worry for his security. “Even”? Can it really be too difficult to recognize that citizens who strongly disagree with the president of the republic don’t want him to be murdered?

So the five Afghan soldiers who went missing from two separate U.S. military bases are now all accounted for and apparently headed back to their home country. Feel safer now? Don’t. The Pentagon, State Department, and Department of Homeland Security would like this story to be over and done. (Just like they wanted the White House “fence-jumper” story to be buried. But then we found out he didn’t just jump the fence; he also overpowered a Secret Service agent, burst through the halls, and invaded the East Room wielding a knife.)

If one is looking for reasons why Washington has become so caustic, divisive and bitter, look no further than retiring Attorney General Eric Holder. If reports first published by the Los Angeles Times are correct, the always controversial Holder, aged 63, will soon announce a new and permanent ban on so-called ‘religious profiling’ designed to better protect those suspected of jihadist or Islamist activities from federal surveillance.

Viagra ´may cause blindness´: Ingredient

Viagra could cause blindness in men with eye problems, and even those with seemingly normal vision, a new study has found. Australian researchers say an ingredient in anti-impotence drugs may permanently affect the vision of men with an inherited eye condition. It could also affect those with normal sight who carry one gene which is linked with developing eye problems. One theory is that erectile dysfunction drugs may obstruct an enzyme which is important for transmitting light signals from the retina to the brain. It is already known that sildenafil, the active ingredient in the erectile dysfunction medication, can cause

Nearly half of federal agency rulings dismissing employee discrimination claims have been overturned under President Obama, costing American taxpayers tens of billions of dollars in settlements to keep with the administration’s mission of operating a politically correct government. In one year alone this translated into an astounding $51.4 billion that federal agencies paid to settle discrimination claims that often had no merit, according to the government’s figures. The information comes from a report issued by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the bloated federal agency that enforces the nation’s workplace discrimination laws.

The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

The incident was first reported by The Washington Post and the Washington Examiner.

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS. For example, Deadline Hollywood didn’t even mention Obama’s 60 Minutes interview when reporting on the drop in viewers. “With no football lead-in, CBS’ Sunday lineup fell from last week. As expected, the drop was steepest at 7 PM, with 60 Minutes (1.1) off by 69%

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

President Barack Obama´s intelligence briefings have provided him with specific information since before he won re-election in 2012 about the growing threat of the terror group now known alternatively as ISIS and ISIL, an administration insider told MailOnline on Monday. ´Unless someone very senior has been shredding the president´s daily briefings and telling him that the dog ate them, highly accurate predictions about ISIL have been showing up in the Oval Office since before the 2012 election,´(snip) ´Any time you´re hired by a boss to advise him about what to do in a high-stakes area, and he ignores you for

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."
