Two huge booksellers, Amazon and Walmart, have already cut the price of Hillary Rodham Clinton´s 2016 tell-all by 40 percent -- and it isn´t even available yet. Set to be released Tuesday, both have priced "What Happened?" at $17.99. Publisher Simon and Schuster set a price of $30. Much of what´s in her book has already been reported on, thanks to leaked copies of the Democratic presidential candidate´s latest work. The price cut, however, has likely helped to boost sales. It is No. 1 on Amazon.
The 5 stages of grief and loss are: 1. Denial and isolation; 2. Anger; 3. Bargaining; 4. Depression; 5. Acceptance. People who are grieving do not necessarily go through the stages in the same order or experience all of them. Apparently she is still in phases 1-4. Her book pretty well gives evidence this is where she is at right now. Sadly #5 may never come. She will be the magnificent suffering victim of her self for ever more and denial will reign supreme.
People won´t buy it because ´copies have been leaked´. Bless their hearts they thought ahead and came up with a ready made excuse why the publisher is going to take a bath on this one. A pre-release profitability study may have been wise. But maybe the $3000 per person pricetag to listen to her whine spoliled the story. It was going to be a total shock that she blamed everthing and everybody but herself.
Buy the book? Are kidding, I´m still celebrating her statement that she is done with politics. Why would I buy her book? I can raise my blood pressure in a 1001 other ways at no cost. Now ask me if i would pay for her to leave and that is something to ponder. If she would offer to leave and take her daughter with her never to be heard from against, I´d buy a dozen of her books. Actually, I wouldn´t but don´t tell the smartest woman in the world that. I´ve always wondered about that line, smartest woman in the world, isn´t that a total slam on all women?
Here´s what will happen. Enough books have already been purchased wholesale and in bulk to keep it on the NYT Best Seller list for at least four months. After free copies have been given out to relatives and foreign donors no one else will actually buy the book.
You can find millions of copies polluting the oceans as the book nobody asked to be written and nobody will read, deep-sixed and swimming with the fishes.
Since only 40% look at Hillary favorably, that means 3/5 of the potential market probably wouldn´t consider buying her whining screed to begin with. The leaks show more of the same garbage that didn´t play well in the media when she finally sobered up and came out of the woods. In other words, she has nothing new to offer, which coincidentally was true about her campaign as well and "What Happened" is that the American People saw that truth.
When it became increasingly clear in the spring of 2016 that Donald Trump would be the Republican nominee for president, a group of Catholic Thoughtfuls penned a letter that March warning that the Catholic project was in “grave danger” because of Trump’s “vulgarity, oafishness, shocking ignorance and . . . demagoguery.” They made a point of emphasizing Trump’s” demagoguery,” in fact, while also charging him with making a racist appeal to voters. (Snip)So, how has Trump done so far? How has he done for the concerns of the Catholic Thoughtfuls? The nomination of Neil Gorsuch alone should be enough to
This is why China will probably surpass us sometime this century. China thinks not in terms of quarters, or decades, but centuries. China thinks that the period 1850 to 1950, for example, was a Century of Humiliation interrupting what was otherwise its rightful position as the center of the universe. Since 1973 they’ve been gathering information, doing research about just how they want to interact with the non-Chinese parts of the world, and now that they’re approaching the fifty-year mark on that project, they’re ready to reassert themselves. They’re starting by making friends with every nation in the world, regardless
Both are Kentucky senators but one, Rand Paul, remains a free-thinker removed from the trappings of the D.C. Swamp. The other is Mitch McConnell, the epitome of the swamp and the current Senate Majority Leader. Today Senator Paul broke rank and went public with his plan to tie the proposed tax cut/reform legislation to the elimination of the Obamacare mandate – a move that would effectively kill the highly unpopular and insanely expensive federal healthcare program. (Tweet)Let’s hope Senator Paul’s amendment is successful. We shall see. Word is Mitch McConnell is none too pleased with the effort.
Biden´s audition for the 2020 presidential nomination continues with his book tour. As he makes his stops, this peddler displays his tin ear to the public, whose hardships and problems he can only guess at. He dared knock the man who stopped the fleeing shooter at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas. On the "Today" show on Monday, Biden said, "Well, first of all, the kind of gun being carried he shouldn’t be carrying." Says who? Says a man who for the last 44 years has lived in the most heavily policed city in the world. (Snip) Out in rural America,
WARNING: THE FOLLOWING POST DISCUSSES THE CLINTON PRESIDENCY. READER DISCRETION IS ADVISED. Now that Bill Clinton and his trashy wife are politically impotent, Democrats want a do over on Paula Jones -- you know the state employee Governor Bill Clinton tried to force to fellate him. She sued. His lawyers deposed him. He perjured himself (and tried to suborn perjury from others) about his consensual affair with That Woman, Miss Lewinsky. Perjury and suborning perjury can be felonies, and certainly are impeachable offenses. Democrats played it as everyone lies about sex, and he beat the rap. Sex is private, right?
No-where is Trump Derangement Syndrome more evident than in the position of activist Democrats now swearing allegiance to multinational trade deals. It was only a short time ago when Democrat activists and liberal politicians demanded U.S. withdrawal from TPP and openly discussed how NAFTA was disastrous for the U.S. worker. Both Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton ran on pulling out of TPP etc. Trump gets elected, actually fulfills a campaign promise and promptly pulls-out of TPP subsequently beginning to renegotiate NAFTA (with leveraged threats to withdraw); and suddenly, Democrats are joining arm-in-arm with corporate Republicans expressing their profound love for multinational trade
The Usual Suspects – Senator John McCain joins Senator Bob Corker demanding that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson spend more money or face being hauled up to congress for Senate investigative hearings on his excessive streamlining and productivity efforts.According to their arguments, Secretary Tillerson has the audacity to think he is allowed to run the state department. Exactly who does he think he is? If he doesn’t start spending more money, the Republicans in the Senate might just impeach him. WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Two senior U.S. senators asked Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Wednesday to explain “questionable management practices” at his
Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) said Wednesday that the Senate would have “no choice but to seat” Judge Roy Moore if he wins the Alabama Senate race in December. According to the law, “We would have no choice but to seat him,” she said, speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill. Sen Collins says she’s looked at the law and if @MooreSenate is elected “we would have no choice but to seat him…” — Frank Thorp V (@frankthorp) November 15, 2017 Her remarks come amid threats from Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and other establishment Republican senators that they will push Moore out even if he wins
A protest petition has been started to change the name of the new Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge to the Hudson River crossing’s old moniker, the Tappan Zee — and it has already picked up more than 41,000 signatures. As of Monday morning, thousands of people had signed the Change.org petition entitled, “Return the Cuomo Bridge its original name: The Tappan Zee. That bridge is our history.” The newly opened $4 billion span, controversially named after Gov. Cuomo’s late three-time Democratic governor dad, was built alongside the old Tappan Zee Bridge between Westchester and Rockland counties to replace the aged cross-over. The
At its “Never Is Now” anti-Semitism summit this week, the Anti-Defamation League gave its ADL Americanism Award to Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria, superintendent of the Air Force Academy, for his famed speech last September denouncing white racists for scrawling antiblack slurs on the dorm door of a black student(Snip)The only problem with the ADL’s ceremony honoring Lt. Gen. Silveria’s “commitment, dedication, and leadership in the fight against hate” was that six days earlier the Air Force Academy had admitted that the graffiti had been a hoax perpetrated by an unnamed black student. In other words, the Air Force Academy incident had
The director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) announced his resignation Wednesday, giving President Trump the chance to reshape an agency that has long been the target of Republican ire. Richard Cordray expects “to step down from his position here before the end of the month,” he wrote in an email that was sent to CFPB staff. (Snip) The director of the CFPB is appointed by the president and confirmed by the Senate. The role comes with broad authority over the CFPB´s budget, actions and priorities. Cordray has led the CFPB since it opened in 2011. His aggressive actions
The death toll in a shooting rampage in northern California rose to five today as authorities gave chilling new insight into the suspected killer´s apparently random attack. Authorities say the gunman´s wife -- whose killing appeared to have kicked off the shooting spree -- was found dead under the floor at their home Tuesday night. Authorities say they suspect she was killed Monday night, sparking suspected gunman Kevin Neal´s seemingly random Tuesday morning shooting spree at multiple locations, including an elementary school. No children were killed in the shootings, which took place about 130 miles north of Sacramento. But seven children were
In the past few weeks, I´ve been a woman of split personalities. On a good day, I´m elated — empowered and inspired by the many women who have courageously opened the floodgates to help end the shroud of silence and shame that surrounds victims of sexual assault and harassment. I shared my stories. I brought other women together to share theirs. We were giddy at the catharsis. It felt like a sea change. On a bad day, I´m despondent — devastated and angry that so many of the people who were rightly outraged over Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey were utterly disbelieving
Known for his insightful take on politics, journalist and author Thomas Wictor believes Judge Roy Moore’s signature in Gloria Allred accuser Beverly Young Nelson’s yearbook is a forgery. (Photo) The sevens in 1977 to the right of “Christmas,” are very different from the sevens in the date (12-22-77) above “Old Hickory House.” “Look at the two versions of the number “7,” tweeted Wictor. “”12-22-77” and “Olde Hickory House” were written by a different person,” he added. Next, Wictor points out “the “R” and “y” in “Roy,”” are not written the same way. The inflection of the “Y” is more pronounced
Jeff Sessions is a man in search of a banana peel. When he can’t find one to step on, he supplies his own. Sessions is not a bad man, but he is a bad attorney general, as he demonstrated again Tuesday. By writing to Republicans in Congress just hours before he was scheduled to testify that he was open to appointing a special prosecutor to examine former FBI Director James Comey’s handling of Hillary Clinton’s e-mail case and the notorious Uranium One deal, Sessions primed the pump for a really big show. Democrats arrived furious and Republicans gleefully expected an ah-ha moment. Both
The ´socialist´ doctor charged with cracking Senator Rand Paul´s ribs in a crunching blindside tackle may have harbored a secret grudge against his GOP neighbor for spoiling his lakeside views and ´devaluing´ his home, DailyMail.com can reveal. Rene Boucher, 59, told Paul in the wake of the mauling that he hadn´t been able to sell his $740,000 house for ten years because the congressman´s trees were ´in the way´. It´s believed Boucher was referring to woodland at the back of Paul´s property that blocks the doctor´s views of the picturesque private lake that forms the centerpiece of their upscale gated
When the Washington Post filed its story against Roy Moore last week, we took a cautious line, agreeing with Republican lawmakers who said “if true,” these charges disqualify the GOP´s nominee in Alabama’s special election for the Senate. We pressed Republicans to extract more information from Moore. Since then, plenty more information has emerged. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, after getting Moore’s side of the story last week, withdrew his endorsement of the former judge. A former boyfriend of the chief Washington Post subject, who says Moore fondled her as a 14-year-old after flirting with her outside a custody hearing, corroborated the story. A
House Speaker Paul D. Ryan said Tuesday that the entire U.S. House will now face mandatory training to avoid sexual harassment and discrimination, moving to address the growing national scandal over behavior ranging from the boorish to the criminal. His comments came hours after a House committee held a hearing on harassment. Mr. Ryan said the House will now have a policy of mandatory training for every lawmaker and every staffer. “Our goal is not only to raise awareness, but also make abundantly clear that harassment in any form has no place in this institution,” he said.
Environment: This week, thousands of scientists issued a bleak and terrifying "second notice" to mankind about how we will destroy the planet unless we take "urgent" action. If this warning is as reliable as the first notice these scientists issued in 1992, we have nothing to worry about. In an article published in the journal Bioscience, 15,364 scientists warned that we are "jeopardizing our future" and that "immediate action" is needed to "safeguard our imperiled biosphere." "Soon it will be too late to shift course away from our failing trajectory, and time is running out," the scientists say. The article
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told attendees at a Wall Street Journal event on Tuesday that if Judge Roy Moore wins the Alabama Senate race in December, he will face a Senate ethics committee investigation. McConnell argued, “I think it’s safe to say that if he were to be sworn in, he would immediately be in a process before the Senate Ethics Committee. He would be sworn in and be asked to testify under oath as well, and it would be a rather unusual beginning.” The Washington Post released an article last week that alleged that Moore engaged in sexual
Appointing a special counsel to probe her Uranium One deal would be “such an abuse of power” by the Trump administration, Hillary Clinton said Wednesday. The former Democratic presidential candidate said Trump risked dangerously politicizing the Justice Department, “like some authoritarian regime.” Clinton made the remarks in an interview with Mother Jones about reports this week that Attorney General Jeff Sessions asked two top prosecutors to look into the sale of a uranium company to Russian interests during Clinton’s time as secretary of state. President Trump and other Republicans allege ties between donations to the Clinton Foundation and the company sale, even though
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Monday called on Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore to step aside, hours after a new accuser came forward alleging Moore sexually assaulted her when she was a teenager. “If he continues this will not end well for Mr. Moore,” Graham tweeted. (Snip) Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), on Monday called for Moore to “step aside,” and was followed by Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) and others. Some have suggested rallying a write-in campaign around Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.), who lost to Moore in a primary runoff in September.
It was a rather cagey move via Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. The longtime anti-Trumper was barely able to conceal his smirk as he informed the media that should Roy Moore win next month’s Alabama special election to fill the vacant Senate seat created when Jeff Sessions became the U.S. Attorney General, it would be up to President Trump to make the final decision regarding whether or not Moore would be allowed to actually serve in the Senate. (Snip) Democrats in Congress are said to already be preparing a full-on “If Roy Moore isn’t fit to be a senator then Donald
Papa John´s apologized Tuesday night for comments made by CEO John Schnatter blaming sluggish pizza sales on NFL players kneeling during the national anthem. The company is a major NFL sponsor and advertiser, and Schnatter said on an earnings call Nov. 1 that "NFL leadership has hurt Papa John´s shareholders" and that the protests "should have been nipped in the bud a year and a half ago."(Snip) "The statements made on our earnings call were describing the factors that impact our business and we sincerely apologize to anyone that thought they were divisive," it said. "That definitely was not our
