Publisher Rejects Fellow Soldiers´
Book on Bowe Bergdahl, Because ´the
Right´ Might Use It ´Against Obama´

Newsbusters, by Tom Blumer

Original Article

Remember all those books that the publishing houses rejected during the eight years before Dear Leader took office because they might get used by "the Left" to hurt George W. Bush? No you don´t, because it didn´t happen. But now, things are different. Fellow soldiers of released 5-year Taliban captive Bowe Bergdahl are trying to publish a book on their side of the "he was a deserter" controversy. A divison of publishing giant Simon & Schuster has rejected their submission. That isn´t necessarily unusual, but the contents of a rejection letter from one of the publisher´s representatives certainly is. At

To the literary agent representing the soldier-authors: Take the book to Adam Bellow, Editorial Director of Broadside Books at HarperCollins. He specializes in conservative non-fiction.

Actually #1, that isn´t true.

Worker bees (female) protect and serve the Queen--and will cause a coup when the Queen becomes non-productive.

Drones do not work, gather nectar, or perform any function than mating with a Queen--and only one of thousands ever get that chance. You see worker bees live around 12 weeks and queens for several years. And when the lucky drone does get to mate (on a new queen´s one and only flight outside the hive, he dies in the process.

The average hive has 30-45,000 bees. One Queen, maybe 100 useless drones, and the rest worker bees.

It´s the worker bees that pollinate all our fruits and vegetables and give us honey!

It really demonstrates that obama is helping the enemy and the msm is helping obama. Oh well that´s what happens when you elect someone who hates America as it is with all his being as President. Not my fault.

#2, HarperCollins is Rupert Murdoch. Do you think he will risk pissing off Obama and Holder in order to buy the rights to this book...?

He has too much invested in this administration and wants a friendly FCPA settlement--wake up.

How many times has the WSJ gone after Eric Holder? Try Zippo, and to boot they (WSJ poll) named Obama the most popular US president since WWII.

MILWAUKEE— First Lady Michelle Obama will rally with Democratic candidate for governor Mary Burke in Milwaukee on Monday, September 29th. Last-minute preparations were underway Sunday at the Wisconsin Center in downtown Milwaukee. That’s where Michelle Obama will join Mary Burke Monday for a Milwaukee rally in the very close race for governor. “We want to give the first lady a big Wisconsin welcome,” Burke for Wisconsin Communications Director Joe Zepecki said.

There is light at the end of the tunnel of Barack Obama’s presidency. With only 843 days left, the presidential campaign will kick off about one month from now. Getting an early boost for his potential bid is U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas). (Snip) While so many GOP establishment types are still encouraging former Gov. Mitt Romney to try a third time after his two failed attempts, Ted Cruz has been wowing crowds and taking bold stands. Who can resist statements such as “Come 2017, I will repeal every word of Obamacare.” You would never hear Romney or former Florida

The stage, drapes, and sound system for an 18-minute speech by President Barack Obama cost taxpayers nearly $100,000. “Elite Productions,” the go-to company for prominent Democratic politicians such as Bill and Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi, put on the set for Obama’s speech to troops at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Fla., on Sept. 17. The company provided “stage, drapery, and audio/visual equipment,” according to a contract document made public by the Air Force last week. The government paid the company $94,360 for a speech that lasted from 12:04 p.m. to 12:22 p.m., at a cost of approximately $5,242.22

Imagine you consult an attorney with an important case. He says, “I´ll accept your case, but I have to tell you at the start, I don´t respect you. In fact, you´re a coward.” The Obama administration entrusted the most important cases of our nation to an attorney general who held the people he was hired to represent in contempt. Presidential administrations have mottos. Theodore Roosevelt spoke softly but carried a big stick; John Kennedy pointed to new frontiers and self-sacrifice; Lyndon Johnson spoke of a great society.

ABC Skips Own Reporter´s Battle

The viewers of ABC News might not know it, but one of the network´s senior reporters, Jon Karl, grilled White House press secretary Josh Earnest on Friday about claims that al Qaeda had been "decimated." From Friday to Monday, ABC ignored the contentious exchange and Earnest´s doubling down. Yet, over that same period, the network´s news programs devoted over 20 minutes to the deeply superficial topic of George Clooney´s wedding in Venice. Instead, it was left to a competitor, Fox News, to highlight Karl´s battle with Earnest. On Friday´s On the Record, Greta Van Susteren played a clip of the

House Republicans are using National Coffee Day to keep up the buzz about President Obama’s “latte salute.” Monday marks the unofficial caffeine-filled holiday. The House Republican Conference tweeted to its more than 150,000 followers: (Tweet) Obama was on the receiving end of plenty of criticism for saluting Marines with a coffee cup in his hand last week as he exited Marine One.

U.S. troops to stay in Afghanistan
after historic transfer of power

Afghanistan´s new government plans to sign a strategic agreement Tuesday with the United States that would allow for approximately 10,000 U.S. troops to remain in the country after the U.S.-led NATO coalition’s mandate expires in December. U.S. officials say the extended troop presence is needed to continue training Afghanistan’s 350,000 soldiers and police, and to conduct counter-terrorism operations. The pact – which outgoing Afghan President Hamid Karzai refused to sign in his final months in office, fueling tensions with Washington – is expected to be signed by U.S. Ambassador James Cunningham and a senior member of the Afghan government.

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) says he believes he can still bring the Republican Party along to achieve bipartisan immigration reform but if President Obama acts unilaterally he will “poison the well” on the issue. Speaking to ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos on “This Week” over the weekend Boehner spoke about the immigration reform effort in the House and reiterated his commitment to achieving reform. In an unaired portion of the interview provided by Boehner´s office, however, Boehner made one of his most aggressive statements about how Obama’s expected executive actions on immigration would affect the reform effort in Congress —

Even as President Obama clearly attempted during a Sunday 60 Minutes interview to blame others for his failure to recognize ISIS as a growing threat in the Middle East, Monday´s NBC Today spun the buck-passing as a "very candid" admission by the commander-in-chief. Co-host Matt Lauer opened the morning show by proclaiming: "Underestimated. The President admits his administration and U.S. intelligence officials misjudged the threat of ISIS." While that headline suggested to viewers that Obama was taking responsibility for the failure, a soundbite ran of the President distancing himself from blame: "I think they underestimated what had been taking place

BEIRUT — U.S.-led coalition warplanes bombed Islamic State group positions overnight across four provinces in northern and eastern Syria, hitting a grain silo as well as the country’s largest gas plant, activists said Monday. Washington and its Arab allies opened their air assault against the extremist group last week, going after its military facilities, training camps, heavy weapons and oil installations. The campaign expands upon the airstrikes the United States has been conducting against the militants in Iraq since early August. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said coalition forces hit Islamic State group facilities overnight in Aleppo, Raqqa,

WICHITA — Greg Orman, the upstart Senate candidate threatening to unseat longtime Republican incumbent Pat Roberts in Kansas, says it’s liberating to run as an independent: “I can go to Washington as a problem solver, not a partisan.” But not having a party also liberates Orman from taking positions — especially on controversial issues that might alienate partisans. Greenlight the Keystone XL pipeline? Orman said he doesn’t have enough information to say yes or no. What about gun control? He said gun restrictions should be “strengthened” but would not specify whether he backs an assault-weapons ban. And on the biggest

President Obama said the shooting death of a black teen by a white police officer last month in Ferguson, Missouri, exposed the racial divide in the American justice system that “stains the heart of black children.” Speaking at the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner in Washington on Saturday night, Mr. Obama said the death of Michael Brown “awakened our nation” to a reality that black citizens already understood. “In too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement,” Mr. Obama said. “Too many young men of color feel targeted by law

Washington - The parents of Michael Brown said Saturday in an interview with The Associated Press they were unmoved by the apology of the Ferguson, Missouri, police chief weeks after their unarmed 18-year-old son was killed by a police officer. Brown´s mother, Lesley McSpadden, called for Chief Tom Jackson to be fired, and his father, Michael Brown Sr., said rather than an apology, they would rather see Officer Darren Wilson arrested for the death of their son on Aug. 9. "An apology would be when Darren Wilson has handcuffs, processed and charged with murder," Brown Sr. said. The young man, who was black,

The U.S. had expected the Iraqi army to do more against extremists, president says in acknowledgment of intelligence shortcomings. President Obama acknowledged that the U.S. underestimated the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS, also called ISIL) and overestimated the ability of the Iraqi military to fend off the militant group in an interview that will air Sunday on 60 Minutes.

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

The Justice Department is expected to ban profiling by federal law enforcement. Counter-terror investigators would be barred from undercover operations in mosques or other religious institutions unless there is reason to believe criminal activity is going on there, under a new policy expected within weeks. The new rules would ban profiling based on religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation and includes no exemption for national security investigations, the Los Angeles Times reports. The announcement of the new policy to crack down on law enforcement profiling was delayed for several months because of White House

A Canadian member of the loathed Islamic State claimed the group is plotting an attack on New York City — and will one day fly its flag over the White House. Days before Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi warned of terrorist plots on subways in New York City and Paris, a video emerged showing an ISIS shill named Farah Shirdon widening the scope of the threat. “God willing, we will make some attacks in New York soon,” he said in a video interview with Vice News last week. “A lot of brothers are mobilizing there right now.” He vowed that U.S.-based fighters are “mobilizing for a brilliant attack.”

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.
