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

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.

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.

Dr. Paul R.

The time for games is over. On Tuesday, America got a horrific wake-up call: Islamic State terrorists released a gruesome video that shows them beheading James Wright Foley, an American photojournalist held in Syria since 2012. The group also showed another US journalist held hostage, Steven Joel Sotloff, and threatened to murder him as well. “The life of this American citizen, Obama, depends on your next decision,” declares the masked terrorist as he holds Sotloff by the neck. True, that puts President Obama in a difficult spot. But the president must do whatever it takes to counter this vicious savagery:

Two recent interviews have been the topic of lively debate within the so-called “foreign-policy community.” First, President Obama told The New York Times’ Thomas Friedman that he envisioned a world in which wars end with “no victor, no vanquished.” Can you imagine Franklin Roosevelt or Winston Churchill embracing such an idea? Even more inconceivable: that those who proclaim themselves jihadis would do anything but laugh their heads off (you should excuse the expression) if they heard it. Next, Hillary Clinton told The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg, “Great nations need organizing principles,” and that Mr. Obama’s motto, “Don’t do stupid stuff,” is “not

EDGARTOWN, Mass.— President Barack Obama says the United States will continue to confront Islamic State extremists despite the brutal murder of journalist James Foley. Obama says the entire world is “appalled” by Foley’s killing. The president says he spoke Wednesday with Foley’s family and offered condolences. He says the Islamic State abducts women and children, and tortures, rapes, enslaves and kills people. He said the Islamic State targets Christians and other minorities and aims to commit genocide. Obama spoke Wednesday from Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, where he’s vacationing with his family, a day after the militants released a video showing the American journalist

Local St. Louis sources said Wilson suffered an “orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket.” This comes from a source within the District Attorney’s office and confirmed by the St. Louis County Police.

President Obama returned to his vacation home at Martha’s Vineyard after briefly interrupting his vacation for two days of meetings in Washington, D.C. Obama met with his economic team Tuesday before leaving the White House at 4:22 pm to return to his vacation home. He did not react to the news that broke later that evening about an ISIS video that showed the beheading of American journalist James Wright Foley. The National Security Council reacted, however, in a statement provided by spokesperson Caitlin Hayden. “We have seen a video that purports to be the murder of U.S. citizen James Foley by ISIL,” Hayden said.

In July, after Germany trounced Brazil 7–1 in the semifinal match of the World Cup—including a first-half stretch in which the Brazilian soccer squad gave up an astonishing five goals in 19 minutes—a sports commentator wrote: “This was not a team losing. It was a dream dying.” These words could equally describe what has become of Barack Obama’s foreign policy since his second inauguration. The president, according to the infatuated view of his political aides and media flatterers, was supposed to be playing o jogo bonito, the beautiful game—ending wars, pressing resets, pursuing pivots, and restoring America’s good name abroad.

The Islamic State’s official media just released a graphic video showing the beheading of American journalist James Foley, who was taken in northwest Syria on Thanksgiving Day 2012. The ISIS terrorist in the video says that the beheading is revenge for President Obama’s recent airstrikes on ISIS targets in Iraq. The video, viewed in full by PJM, begins with a snippet of Obama speaking about the strikes, then shifts to images of the strikes with a title that reads, “American Aggression Against the Islamic State.” The title card then says a “A Message to America.” Foley, with a shaved head, was
