Costco’s Removal Of Dinesh D’Souza’s
‘America’ Proves To Be A Massive
Backfire As It Soars to the Top

Independent Journal Review, by Caroline Schaeffer

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/9/2014 2:16:21 PM

Talk about karma. Costco, a discount chain co-founded by a major Democratic donor, faced the wrath of the almighty dollar after stripping its shelves of Dinesh D’Souza’s bestselling book America: Imagine The World Without Her. According to Newsbusters, after Costco announced that it was dropping D’Souza’s work, the book soared to #1 on Amazon.com. Book reviewers on the website made clear their opinion of the retail giant. Costco I don’t have to shop thee!!! Just saying! Screw Costco …I’ll buy it here. Thanks Amazon !!! Heard about this book being banned by Costco. Read reviews here and was especially befuddled

If a couple hundred thousand Costco customers cancelled their memberships, along with a note explaining why, maybe the Democratic donating dingbat running it wouldn´t have quite so much money to donate.

(BTW: Sam´s Club has D´Souza´s book as well as better products at better prices than Costco, so maybe should tell Costco that as well......)

Thank you so much, Mr. Sinegal. The additional publicity has been much appreciated by Mr. D´Souza, I´m sure. Oh, and by the way, I´ll be shopping Sam´s from here on out.

Those at the top of the food chain at Costco have been staunch supporters of Obama donating to his campaigns.

I just returned home from Costco. While there, I told my cashier I wouldn´t be renewing my membership, due to the D´Souza book being pulled. I pointed out that Hillary´s book should be placed in the fiction section, and while sales for her book are beyond sad, Costco chose to give D´Souza the heave ho.

I stated I will be taking my republican money and spending it elsewhere from now on.

Wouldn´t it be great if enough Americans had the gumption to permanently stop buying from a left wing idiot business to make them have to close up shop? Would that send a message to lefty corporate goons?

something here gave my heart some goodness. Target here went through some real stress when they banned the Salvation Army pot ringers from in front of their store at xmas. Just this year, that Target store closed up due to lack of business. I know, it was not from that alone, but, I like to think it had something to do with it.

I know when they made that decision, I made a personal decision to never shop in a Target store again...and have kept my promise. I like to think other Americans were with me on that and helped to shut a Target Store for good.

Conservatives read; lo-fo´s don´t, so Costco will still keep its lo-fo customers.

Heard a news report yesterday from CBS Radio and I said to myself, "They´re lying all over the place" (about the invasion on the southern border). Bad enough the lo-fo´s get little real news; the news they get is often not true.

The dumbing down of our country continues.

This is what I wrote to the CEO immediately after the news broke that they were pulling the books.

Dear Sir:

I am a long time Costco customer, who has been well aware that the owners of Costco donate large amounts of money to the Democrat Party; still I never would have considered punishing Costco for their views if they differ from mine. It is appalling to think that large corporations would sacrifice the loyalty of their customers by attacking the livelihood of a fellow American. It is my hope that this disappointing situation is addressed in your board room, because this type of intolerance is something that should not be tolerated in the United States of America. Banning books is not a good idea; it wasn´t a good idea in Nazi Germany and it isn´t a good idea in the United States of America either. We should be able to have civil dialogue in which we all are able to express our opinions. Your company does not look good having signaled that you are not carrying a book that your CEO does not like. If he didn´t like Feta cheese, I would still hope that you would sell it.

Sincerely,

GOP edge grows in final stretch
The Hill (Washington DC), by Cameron Joseph    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 10/4/2014 7:01:11 AM     Post Reply
With one month until Election Day, Republicans´ chances for retaking the Senate and picking up seats in the House are improving. The GOP has been buoyed by positive public polling, while red-state Democrats are still struggling to find distance from President Obama. There are bright spots and even some unexpected new targets on the map for both parties, but the overall national environment seems to have ticked a bit toward Republicans.The GOP needs to win a net of six seats to retake control of the Senate, and Republicans seem better-positioned to do so now than they did through much of

Obama Unwittingly Makes Best
Case Against Political Speech Laws

President Obama famously derided the Supreme Court over the Citizens United decision in a State of the Union address. Obama’s bashing of that First Amendment decision is also central in the scandal involving Internal Revenue Service targeting of Tea Party applicants for tax-exempt status. Lois Lerner followed Obama’s lead to suppress speech. Thursday, in an address at Northwestern University, however, Obama unwittingly undermined a whole regime of regulation of election-related speech. As reported at The Daily Caller: President Barack Obama gave GOP campaigns and right-wing super PAC’s across the nation fodder to

for a Falling Unemployment Rate

One would think that Friday’s announcement that the unemployment rate had fallen to its lowest point since Barack Obama took office would be good news for the president. Yet as the unemployment rate has declined, President Obama’s job approval rating has worsened. So it’s not clear how much of an effect modest changes in the economy’s condition will have on his approval ratings. (Snip) The latest unemployment numbers will be the last ones released before the midterm elections, and Mr. Obama is trying to leverage them to his party’s advantage. On Thursday, he spoke at Northwestern University and talked up

Just when you thought you knew all the consequences of the Ebola pandemic, here’s another one: it could affect the supply of chocolate. Of course that doesn’t rise to the seriousness of illness and death, but it does show how much Ebola affects trade and production. An estimated 70% of the world’s cocoa beans come from the West African countries of Ivory Coast, Ghana, Nigeria and Cameroon. Ivory Coast is the world’s largest producer, exporting 37.8% of the world’s cocoa, according to the Wall Street Journal. (In fact, Ivory Coast just posted a record harvest and the government increased its

The Obama administration found itself on defense Friday after former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta criticized the White House for its policies on Iraq, with the State Department and others publicly disputing his claims. Panetta chided the president´s team in his forthcoming memoir, excerpts of which have been published in the media. He alleges the White House didn´t try hard enough to strike a deal with Iraq in 2011 to leave a residual force of U.S. troops behind, in turn opening the door for the region to become a haven for the Islamic State. In newly published excerpts, he also criticized

The dictionary defines nepotism as, “the practice among those with power or influence of favoring relatives or friends, especially by giving them jobs.” It perhaps should come to no surprise to anyone even remotely aware of the ethical scandals permeating Democrats in the State Senate that a new scandal should emerge surrounding untoward hiring practices in the State Senate, and a cover-up by Senate Leadership. (More on that cover-up in a moment.) First I think it is important to recap that the Senate, as an institution, is clearly at an ethical low point. Former Democratic State Senate Rod Wright finally resigned

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control.

At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts.

Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It
