Amazon deletes one-star reviews
of Hillary Clinton´s new book

Telegraph [UK], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 9/12/2017 5:30:54 PM

Amazon has been monitoring and deleting reviews after Hillary Clinton´s new book was greeted with a torrent of criticism on the day it was released. What Happened, which covers the former Secretary of State´s unsuccessful election campaign against Donald Trump, was published on Tuesday. Clinton and her publisher Simon & Schuster claimed the book would offer a candid account of her failure and her own reflection on it.  Reviews of What Happened have been mixed, with some suggesting it Clinton uses it as an opportunity to blame others – such as Bernie Sanders and Vladimir Putin – for her failure, rather than herself.

I guess Amazon, and the rest of the Democrat media whores have taken their duty as the self-appointed "Ministry of Truth" seriously.

One advantage in the USA is if the Antifa folks want to try a coup d´état is that they won´t have to use any resources to take over the media. They already control it.

They did the same thing for Megyn Kelly´s book. Jeff Bezos is just applying all the Fake News expertise he has developed from his ego bauble the Washington comPost, to make sure that Les Deplorables -- i.e., those he thinks are beneath him, about 99.999999% of the population -- remain ignorant of the truth and thus easily manipulated. Break up Amazon -- into little tiny pieces.

I just went on Amazon and looked at the reviews, 45% are 5 stars and 49% are 1 star.

I don´t know if the "1 stars" were deleted, then there were that many new 1 star reviews.

I maintain a ´schiff´ list of of companies I refuse to do business with.
Kohl´s, Target, Starbucks, are included on that list, but Amazon is at the top.
Bozo Bezos is caught up with his own brand of Hate America, and I refuse to sustain him in any way.

The five star reviews are hilarious. You´d think the book came with a packet of Kool-aid. More effuse language you will never hear. It´s like love letter after love letter probably written by a hired boiler room operation in India for 6 cents apiece. They are really really funny.

I took a look at the first few reviews this morning - 5 were glowing and one referred to it as the worst toilet paper on the market. I figured then that the reviews were being edited. Bezos learned his lesson when the reviews of Illary and Kaine´s campaign book last summer were hilariously brutal.

Amazon is nothing more than a reincarnation of Sears, Spiegel, JC Penny and other mail order has Beens with a little bit of technology applied. We-Mart, Target, and many other retailers are not going to just roll over. The impersonallity of dealing with Amazon will eventually run its course and the buying public will find the personal service of retail is a welcome experience. People by nature want to be around people. And that is an undeniable truth of life as well as the reason thAt I have never bought anything off of Amazon nor will I ever

Bezos is just another corrupt Democrat -- a rich one but nonetheless an unethical corrupt one. This is worse than Soviet propaganda since it is being done by private citizens who try to foster an image of being unbiased but who are extreme partisans. At least with the Soviet propaganda, you knew it was the government talking.

If Hillary! keeps insisting she is relevant by continually forcing her big butt and ugly face on the general public, then it´s time to open several very serious investigations into her past illegal behavior. Let her use some ... a lot! ... of her ill-gained money to defend herself. Wonder how much she would enjoy the spotlight then.

Although Amazon lists it as #6 on Kindle eBooks they don´t list the number of copies sold, either in hardcover or on Kindle. Another source says:

"Said the source about the Clinton book which reportedly had an initial print run of one million copies: “Between us, they are nervous at S&S [Simon & Schuster]. Sales were well below expectations and the media was a disaster. They sold 60,000 hard covers first week and 24,000 ebooks. The publishing house was ‘hoping and praying for 150,000 print first week.’ They will be lucky to sell 150,000 total lifetime. It’s a bomb but it will be interesting to see how they spin it.””

I don´t have a problem with Amazon deleting reviews from people who didn´t buy the book from them. It is their website, and if they want to limit it to people who purchased the book from them so be it. Book reviews are supposed to to written by people who´ve read the book (or at least tried to read it), not people who despise the author and want to vent. For the record, I´ve panned books that I bought from them, and they´ve always left my one and two star ratings intact.

Unfortunately for conservatives, Amazon is still the best at what they do - business wise. Walmart and a few others are trying to compete, but their customer service often leaves much to be desired (depends on local store management). I live in a rural area away from the city, and hope that I can switch to a real competitor, but right now see none.

I´m guessing Simon & Schuster has a conservative subsidary that will publish a book by a decent conservative author (Mark Steyn, Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity, etc.) that will cover the loss on the Hillary book and its multi-million dollar advance to Hillary.

Again.

Some people may call that a payoff. And I´d be one of those people.

I can sort of understand if they´re deleting 1-star reviews that are not verified purchases, which are just people gratuitously editorializing, but if they´re deleting all 1-star reviews regardless, that´s just plain censorship. Amazon itself marked it down to 40 percent off before it even came out, so that speaks volumes right there.

Although this is deliciously funny in a Deplorable way, I still can’t believe anyone in the Clinton machine or even at S&S did not say, “Whoa! This is a disaster!” Or, perhaps they are all so sick of her they let this bunch of sour grapes go public in an assisted suicide effort.

Either way, the court of public opinion is going to be harsh and swift. I doubt her “book tour” will last through all 15 cities. It gets expensive to rent an audience, let alone the logistics, doing it a dozen times in two months. I also doubt she has the stamina. This is a more ambitious schedule than she kept when she was supposedly campaigning for the presidency. Its rather poetic in a way; last year’s campaign focused on presenting the fake Hillary!, and this year she wants everyone to know the real Her!. She could not have given President Trump a greater gift. The court of public opinion will try Mrs. Clinton and the verdict will be, “Lock her up!”

MAGA – Timing is everything.

When Steelers left tackle Alejandro Villanueva was an Army Ranger, he was expected to follow orders. The fact that he didn’t on Sunday came as a surprise to at least one teammate. Villanueva was the only Steeler to be seen during the national anthem yesterday, standing with his right hand over his heart while the rest of the team stayed in the locker room, in what coach Mike Tomlin described as a way to avoid being dragged into a political fight. In a look at the team’s decision-making process by Jacob Klinger of PennLive.com, there was a sense that the Steelers were

CARSON, Calif. — It’s time for NFL owners to go beyond issuing statements and to make a statement: bring back quarterback Colin Kaepernick. On Sunday, from an undisclosed location, Kaepernick retweeted on his Twitter account several images of NFL players wearing T-shirts that read #IMWITHKAP. NFL owners need to show they are as well. They finally can dispel theories that Kaepernick has been blackballed for refusing to stand for the national anthem last season, or, fearing a blacklash from fans, that they simply lack the courage to give him another chance. In May 2016, speaking at a campaign rally in Kentucky,

Democrats are worried that the fight between former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is doing lasting damage to their party. As the bickering between the former rivals grows more intense, Democrats say it needs to end. "It reiterates that our party is still led by people with fatal flaws," said one former senior Obama administration official. Another former Obama official added, "It´s like watching two children bickering." The only winner from the infighting, they say, is the Republican president.

President Donald Trump has called for fans to boycott the NFL if players don´t stop ´disrespecting´ the US by kneeling during the national anthem - as his rant continues to draw backlash from high profile athletes. Trump had earlier denounced the protests by NFL players and rescinded a White House invitation for NBA champion Stephen Curry in a two day rant that targeted top professional athletes and brought swift condemnation from league executives and star players alike on Saturday. Early Sunday morning, Trump continued his Twitter tirade and called for an NFL boycott. ´If NFL fans refuse to go to games until

CARSON, Calif. — It’s time for NFL owners to go beyond issuing statements and to make a statement: bring back quarterback Colin Kaepernick. On Sunday, from an undisclosed location, Kaepernick retweeted on his Twitter account several images of NFL players wearing T-shirts that read #IMWITHKAP. NFL owners need to show they are as well. They finally can dispel theories that Kaepernick has been blackballed for refusing to stand for the national anthem last season, or, fearing a blacklash from fans, that they simply lack the courage to give him another chance. In May 2016, speaking at a campaign rally in Kentucky,

The recent behavior of a number of spoiled, privileged, ungrateful NFL players is unacceptable to most Americans, NFL fans or not. (snip) It would be so satisfying if a group of patriotic fans to have at the ready a flash mob of singers at a stadium game. If the players "take a knee" to show their disdain for the flag and the national anthem, these talented souls would wait until just before the kick-off and then stand up and belt out the national anthem themselves. Chances are hundreds of those in attendance would join them. Then they would exit the

As more and more leaks about the ongoing “Russian collusion” witch hunt by Robert Mueller appear in print, it seems to me that if Russia had been trying to erode our faith in our institutions, the Deep State is accomplishing what Russia failed to do. The Obama claque’s efforts were initially intended to help Clinton when they thought she would win and no one would know about their crimes. Then they continued the unlawful spying to cover up their role in the worst case of misuse of federal power in our history, to effect the removal or emasculation of the President,

Giants owners John Mara and Steve Tisch had a harsh reaction to President Trump’s called for NFL owners to fire players who refuse to stand for the national anthem. “Comments like we heard last night from the president are inappropriate, offensive and divisive,” Mara and Tisch said in a statement Saturday. “We are proud of our players, the vast majority of whom use their NFL platform to make a positive difference in our society.” Trump initially addressed the issue during a campaign rally speech in Alabama for Senator Luther Strange, asserting that owners should fire “any son of a b—h”

In June 1979, the Bee Gees were on top of the world. Months before, their “Saturday Night Fever” soundtrack, featuring songs written and/or performed by the Australian trio, had won a Grammy for album of the year. The year before, it spent 24 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard charts. And now the band was playing 60,000-seat arenas across America. Disco was king, and the Bee Gees — brothers Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb, clad in white suits and flashing gold chains — were its ambassadors. At the start of the tour, Maurice got hold of a T-shirt that made everyone
