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.

Obama planning to give ´millions of

Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 7/28/2014 9:55:32 PM     Post Reply
Even as they grapple with an immigration crisis at the border, White House officials are making plans to act before November´s mid-term elections to grant work permits to potentially millions of immigrants who are in this country illegally, allowing them to stay in the United States without threat of deportation, according to advocates and lawmakers in touch with the administration. Such a large-scale move on immigration could scramble election-year politics and lead some conservative Republicans to push for impeachment proceedings against President Barack Obama, a prospect White House officials have openly discussed.

Federal Court To Atheist Group:

A federal court ruled Monday that the existence of a cross at Ground Zero does not violate the Constitution, slamming the appeal filed by the secular activist group American Atheists. The famous cross, formed by two intersecting beams left standing after the 9/11 attacks, has been a powerful spiritual symbol for many since and even during the tragedy. Frank Silecchia discovered the cross while helping recover bodies from the site. “It was a sign,” he later said. ”a sign God hadn’t deserted us.” American Atheists felt differently. In July 2011 they filed suit over the cross, which had been included in the

WASHINGTON — In an escalation of tensions, the Obama administration accused Russia on Monday of conducting tests in violation of a 1987 nuclear missile treaty, calling the breach "a very serious matter" and going public with allegations that have simmered for some time. The treaty confrontation comes at a highly strained time between President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin over Russia´s intervention in Ukraine and Russia´s grant of asylum to National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden. An administration official said President Barack Obama notified Russian President Vladimir Putin of the U.S. determination

If the Chamber of Commerce backs Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) for reelection, she will join an shrinking club: Democrats backed by the nation´s largest business group. In an op-ed about the Chamber´s political strategy published in Saturday´s New York Times, Joe Nocera writes that the group has decided to back Landrieu. But a spokeswoman cautioned that no decisions have been finalized yet. According to a Chamber tally, the group has endorsed fewer and fewer Democrats in recent years. In 2008, it backed 38 for Congress. That number shrunk to 21 in 2010, five in 2012 and and just two so far this year -- Reps. Henry Cueller (D-Tex.) and

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee angered his Facebook fans after endorsing Sen. Lamar Alexander against conservative state Representative Joe Carr last month. Carr has been endorsed by former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham for the August 7th primary. And Carr has been relentlessly hammering Alexander for voting for the Senate´s amnesty bill even after law enforcement officials warned Alexander that it would lure more illegal immigrants from Central America. Nearly every one of close to 450 comments beneath Huckabee´s announcement on his Facebook page blasts Huckabee for supporting Alexander. One Huckabee fan said, "We

Since October, over 57,000 unaccompanied children have crossed the border into the United States, according to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The children claim asylum after they are detained by government officials. After a sponsor in the United States claims responsibility for a child, they earn their release with court summons to an immigration court to determine whether they qualify for asylum. According to a Reuters report, a case takes three to five years to clear the system as immigration courts have a backlog of 375,373 cases. So where are these released children awaiting their court date? According to the HHS

CLINT, Texas — Authorities are considering a bid to build a shelter in West Texas that would be the largest in the U.S. to hold unaccompanied children who enter the country illegally. A number of sites in Texas and elsewhere are being considered as detention facilities for many of the more than 57,000 unaccompanied children who have entered the U.S. since October. But with 3,500 beds, the proposed Abraham Lincoln Transitional Lodge southeast of El Paso would be far larger than other centers.

The holiday is a Muslim one called "Eid-al-Fitr" and the statement says: his last month has been a time of fasting, reflection, spiritual renewal, and service to the less fortunate. While Eid marks the completion of Ramadan, it also celebrates the common values that unite us in our humanity and reinforces the obligations that people of all faiths have to each other, especially those impacted by poverty, conflict, and disease.

When The Times of Israel’s Avi Issacharoff first reported the content of John Kerry’s ceasefire proposal on Friday afternoon, I wondered if something had gotten lost in translation. It seemed inconceivable that the American secretary of state would have drafted an initiative that, as a priority, did not require the dismantling of Hamas’s rocket arsenal and network of tunnels dug under the Israeli border. Yet the reported text did not address these issues at all, nor call for the demilitarization of Gaza.

Former presidential nominee Mitt Romney would win the popular vote if a rematch of the 2012 election against President Obama were held today, a CNN/ORC poll has revealed. According to the poll, if the 2012 election were held again today, Romney would receive 53% of the popular vote, and Mr. Obama would receive 44%, CNN reported. Obama beat Romney 51%-47% in the actual election. The poll said, however, that the former Massachusetts governor would lose against Hillary Clinton by double digits in a hypothetical election. Mrs. Clinton would earn 55% of the vote, with Mr. Romney at 42%.

Sunday on CNN´s "Fareed Zakaria GPS," former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton discussed the United States standing in the world and said former President George W. Bush is the president who made her "proud to be an American." Clinton then seemingly took a shot at Obama´s current lack of direction in world leadership. "We have to go back out and sell ourselves," Clinton said. "It is not to be taken for granted. What do we stand for and, how do we intend to lead and manage? How do we try to enlist the rest of the world in this struggle between cooperation and order and conflict and disorder which is really at the root of so much

GAZA CITY — The conflict in Gaza raged on Sunday, even as both Israel and Hamas offered brief truces and President Obama pressed Israel for an “immediate, unconditional humanitarian ceasefire,” reflecting growing concern over the rising death toll. Israel denied Sunday that it was responsible for one of the most shocking attacks in the 20-day conflict, saying its soldiers were not behind the deaths of 16 Palestinians killed by shelling three days earlier as they sought refuge in a U.N. school near an area of intense fighting. Israel’s military, however, offered no details about what it called a “comprehensive inquiry”

A leading drug policy researcher, David Murray, has a must-read piece up at the Hudson Institute website, "Comparing Marijuana and Alcohol: Seriously." Murray´s article is a devastating deconstruction of claims that marijuana is relatively safe, or at least safer than alcohol. And, as he points out, it thereby undermines much of the basis of the New York Times´s blithely irresponsible editorial endorsement of marijuana legalization. Read Murray´s whole piece. Here are highlights: It’s a remarkable weekend when one finds the Grey Lady arguing for state’s rights, and worrying huffily about arbitrary Presidential powers. But when it comes to smoking dope, the mind

President Barack Obama is practically weepy at the thought of his daughter Malia going off to college, a milestone many months away that is already on his mind. Malia barely reached up to her father´s shoulders when they moved to the White House nearly six years ago with her mother, little sister and grandmother. At 16, she stands nearly as tall as her 6-foot-1 dad and is visiting college campuses in preparation for that bittersweet day in the fall of 2016 when she trades her White House bedroom for a dorm. She has been seen touring the University of California

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee angered his Facebook fans after endorsing Sen. Lamar Alexander against conservative state Representative Joe Carr last month. Carr has been endorsed by former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham for the August 7th primary. And Carr has been relentlessly hammering Alexander for voting for the Senate´s amnesty bill even after law enforcement officials warned Alexander that it would lure more illegal immigrants from Central America. Nearly every one of close to 450 comments beneath Huckabee´s announcement on his Facebook page blasts Huckabee for supporting Alexander. One Huckabee fan said, "We

In 2012, four years after sort-of-stumping-but-not-really for her mother’s presidential campaign, Chelsea Clinton sat down for a lengthy, laudatory profile for Vogue. “Historically, I deliberately tried to lead a private life in the public eye,” she said. “And now I am trying to lead a purposefully public life.” Last April, Clinton told Fast Company magazine much the same thing. As she also did with NBC’s Brian Williams, who interviewed Clinton after she was hired by the network as a “special correspondent” — albeit one with no journalism experience. Her starting salary: $600,000 a year. “For most of my life I did deliberately
