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.

In early June 1964, a group of Republican governors sought to wrestle control of their party from Barry Goldwater, the Arizona conservative who was about to lead the GOP to one of the most crushing defeats in its history. The governors saw a disaster in the making, and sought a moderate candidate who could capture the imaginations of grassroots Republicans—but also beat President Lyndon Johnson in the general election. Led by Ohio’s James Rhodes—the Republican Governors Association was meeting in Cleveland, and Rhodes was a legendary vote counter—the group included Pennsylvania’s William Scranton and later New York’s Nelson Rockefeller.

As he laid out his strategy to combat the Islamic State in both Iraq and Syria, President Obama rejected the “best military advice” of his top military commander in the Middle East. Quoting two U.S. military officials, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday that Army Gen. Lloyd Austin, commander of U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM), said “that his best military advice was to send a modest contingent of American troops, principally Special Operations forces, to advise and assist Iraqi army units in fighting the militants.” Austin’s recommendation was taken to the White House by the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen.

President Obama said there is a “silver lining” in the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, arguing that Middle Eastern nations could use the opportunity to build a lasting anti-terror coalition. "We´re going to be able to build the kind of coalition that allows us to lead but also isn´t entirely dependent on what we do," Obama told a group of Democratic donors at a fundraiser in Baltimore. Arab nations needed to "snuff out" that type of "Islamic extremism," he added. The president said he was confident that the U.S. would be able to put together an international coalition

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie
