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.
Will Rogers never met Senator John McCain. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has paid millions to the GOPe to retain Obamacare on behalf of multinational corporations who exploit and erode the U.S. economy. The largest beneficiaries of those payments has long been the decepticons within the senate. McCain’s position is not a surprise. Sarah Palin endorsed Senator John McCain during his 2012 reelection bid.WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Senator John McCain said on Friday he opposes the latest Republican bill to dismantle Obamacare, dealing the measure what could be a fatal blow given the party’s slim Senate majority. With several other Republicans
Melania Trump is known for making a glamorous appearance wherever she goes, but on Friday the first lady got her hands dirty while doing a bit of gardening at the White House - while still refusing to sacrifice her love of high-end fashion. The 47-year-old spent the afternoon getting her hands dirty harvesting vegetables with students from the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Washington, D.C. in the White House Kitchen Garden, which was started by former First Lady Michelle Obama, wearing what appeared to be a very casual ensemble of jeans, sneakers, and a fall-appropriate plaid shirt. Ever the dedicated fashion
Days before the expiration of President Trump’s much-contested travel ban, the White House is reviewing a security report that aides say could serve as the basis of a new, and perhaps broader, version. The classified report by the Department of Homeland Security, sent to the White House last week, is a study of the available security and intelligence information in countries worldwide, not just the six Muslim-majority nations subject to Trump’s order banning travel by their citizens to the United States. That order expires on Sunday. Based on the findings, Trump could decide to keep the travel ban in place, or either
Baseball legend Curt Schilling talked to Tucker Carlson about the internal politics at ESPN in an interview on Wednesday´s edition of Tucker Carlson Tonight on the FOX News Channel. (Snip) CURT SCHILLING: Well, let me just say, my friends aside, I still have some friends who work there who I love dearly, this is no surprise. this is a group like -- listen, one thing we know, Tucker, and we´ve come to know, the left is about your race, your sex, your sexual preference, your identity, who you worship, who you don´t worship, who you want to sleep with whether
In recent months, late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel has taken to scaremongering his audience with well-worn Democratic Party talking points regarding health care insurance policy. Between yuks, he occasionally accuses Republicans of being would-be baby killers, which is treated as an important political development because, well, Jimmy Kimmel is famous. This week, the comedian was back to explain why the new Graham-Cassidy Republican "repeal" bill is bad news. There were only two things wrong with his monologue: Almost everything he said was either completely untrue or highly misleading, and his simplistic emotional appeal was completely disconnected from the real
TEHRAN, Iran -- Iran´s Revolutionary Guard on Friday unveiled its latest ballistic missile capable of reaching much of the Middle East, including Israel, while the country´s president vowed that Tehran would press ahead with its missile program in defiance of U.S. demands to the contrary. The unveiling came during a military parade in Tehran that commemorated the 1980s Iraq-Iran war. The move was a direct challenge to President Donald Trump, who in August signed a bill imposing mandatory penalties on those involved in Iran´s ballistic missile program and anyone who does business with them. Though Iran has long boasted of
Affirmative action privileges for blacks and (to a lesser extent) Hispanics have been a near-universal feature of college admissions for what is now approaching a half century. What have we learned since the late 1960s? Perhaps the strangest result is that the biggest winners from racial quotas have turned out to be blacks who aren’t descended from victimized American slaves but are instead descended from the slave peddlers, or from whites, or, as in the case of Barack Obama, from both. (Snip)Harvard, the alpha dog of academia, performed numerous quantitative studies during the 1970s about how far it could
The DACA issue compels us to confront our time’s either-or: patriotism or multiculturalism? We can’t have it both ways; which shall it be? Though it would have been unthinkable at any other period in history, most of the intellectual class chooses multiculturalism. Their preference, that is to say, is not for the interests of their own country, but for those of non-Americans. This is bizarre, for while patriotism, like so much else in human affairs, is a mixed thing—often crossing over into a crass and dangerous nationalism, for example—it does refer to actual practices and customs, embodied values whereby people
The largest urban centers throughout the country are where Democrats steal elections. They can’t do it by numbers of legal voters alone, though. No, they literally stuff the results with illegal votes time and time again. Pennsylvania is a historic swing state that offers up 20 electoral votes in each presidential election. Democrat candidates had been winning it easily since Bill Clinton took it from George H.W. Bush in 1992. Then came Donald Trump in 2016 and his shocking win in Pennsylvania – DESPITE the voter fraud machine the Democrats had long had in place. To those who doubt that
Every time I get to the point where I wash my hands of all newspaper columnists, a guy like Paul Mulshine of the Star-Ledger in New Jersey comes through to renew my faith in a trade that time should have passed by. Mulshine wrote: Did you see all those front-page stories last week about how ISIS is getting trounced in Syria? Neither did I. In recent weeks, I read more about the high heels that Melania Trump wore on a trip to Texas than I did about the positive developments in a war that was at the center of the foreign-policy debate in last
The most nationalist speech given by an American to an international audience was—and remains—John F. Kennedy’s “Ich Bin Ein Berliner” speech. In it, Kennedy threatened the Soviet Union, an enemy of the United States. The Soviet Union menaced the United States with a massive arsenal of thermonuclear weapons. (Snip) Less than two decades after Germany laid waste to European Russia, Kennedy had uttered the unthinkable. He threatened Russia with a unified Germany. The effect was immediate. The German crowd’s wild reaction unsettled some observers. That was the sound of statesmanship.
Seems odd, doesn´t it, that a cable entertainment network devoted to bringing down the presidency of Donald Trump would suddenly -- out of nowhere -- report "Exclusive: US government wiretapped former Trump campaign chairman," but there it is. As you will see, this story was given to CNN for a nefarious purpose. Note what was said and what was not said: (Snip) What was said: Some US investigators wiretapped. Some communications "sparked concern" Mueller "has been provided" A FISA was issued in 2014 What was not said: Who got the FISA Why Mueller got the information Whether they spied on Trump
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) announced on Friday that he will vote against the latest GOP effort to repeal ObamaCare, potentially dooming the legislation. “I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal. I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried," he said in a statement, referring to the legislation spearheaded by GOP Sens. Lindsey Graham (S.C) and Bill Cassidy (La.). McCain´s announcement leaves GOP leadership with no room for error.
The Senate’s top Democrat offered praise for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) after he said he would oppose the latest ObamaCare repeal bill, which narrows the chance that Republicans can get the legislation to President Trump’s desk. “John McCain shows the same courage in Congress that he showed when he was a naval aviator,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said an hour after McCain’s statement. “I have assured Senator McCain that as soon as repeal is off the table, we Democrats are intent on resuming the bipartisan process.” McCain is the second Republican, after Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), to announce
If NFL fans continue to turn away from football, the TV networks could lose as much as $200 million in earnings, according to a new report. After ratings for Week Two crashed, adding to the angst already felt by a poor showing in Week 1, industry insiders and analysts are sounding the alarm. A new report claims that CBS, ESPN, Fox and NBC could take a $200 million hit to their estimated $2.5 billion in NFL advertising earnings if fans continue to turn off the TV, the The Hollywood Reporter noted recently. The worries over earnings are not allayed by
A new fifth grade teacher at Canopy Oaks Elementary is asking students to use gender-neutral pronouns in the classroom. Math and science teacher Chloe Bressack sent the request home in a letter to parents headlined "About Mx. Bressack." “... my pronouns are ´they, them, their´ instead of ´he, his, she, hers.´ I know it takes some practice for it to feel natural,” the letter reads, “but students catch on pretty quickly.” The letter also asks that students use “Mx.," (pronounced ´Mix´) when addressing the teacher rather than Mr. or Ms. The note alarmed some parents. In a post written Tuesday night in the Facebook group
ABC has greenlit a new sitcom tentatively titled "Sanctuary Family" about an undocumented family living in the U.S. The network says the show will follow the pandemonium that unfolds when a married couple allows their undocumented nanny and her family to live with them. The guests put a strain on the marriage of the host family but they eventually learn that “the differences both families have aren’t as significant as their similarities,” according to the description provided by ABC. Undocumented immigrants are foreign-born people who don’t have a legal right to be or remain in the United States and the
Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel used his opening monologue Thursday to once again lambast supporters of the Graham-Cassidy health care bill -- and at one point called a Republican senator from Louisiana an "inbred." The host of ABC´s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” has emerged as a strong celebrity advocate for universal health care since his infant son had to undergo open-heart surgery in April. Kimmel made an announcement about his son during a memorable monologue at the time and has taken up the cause ever since. Part of his goal is for every child in the U.S. to have the same access to
Michelle Obama said in a speech Thursday that the White House is currently being led by fear, comparing President Trump´s administration with her husband and former President Obama´s administration. (Snip) “It isn’t just us first,” she said, referring to Trump´s "America first" policies. “We live in a big country and a big world," she said. "You can’t just want to help someone in a hurricane and not make sure they can go to the doctor when they’re sick.” Trump reiterated his "America first" doctrine in a speech to the United Nations General Assembly this week, emphasizing that America would put
The San Francisco 49ers Thursday night game against the Los Angeles Rams kicked off in front of a nearly empty stadium. Los Angeles Times reporter Lindsey Thiry tweeted a photo at the time of kickoff, which showed thousands of open seats. In fact, most sections in the photo have more empty seats than fans. (Tweet/Photo/Video) ESPN’s Darren Rovell reported that 63,500 tickets had been sold for the game, but of course, simply selling a ticket doesn’t mean the buyer will actually show up to the game. It’s hard to believe there are more than 30,000 people in the stadium, judging
Former First Lady Michelle Obama has spoken about what life was like for her and her family during her eight years in The White House. Her candid comments came during a moderated discussion at a tech conference in Salt Lake City, Utah on Thursday evening. ´It´s like being shot out of a cannon while drinking from a fire hydrant blind,´ she explained as she told of how she got used to her new way of living. ´You have to tell The White House what kind of toilet paper you like. You don´t know where your forks are.´ (Photos) Mrs Obama
Democratic Rep. John Lewis said Thursday he sometimes feels like “taking a bullwhip” to people in order to make them care about civil rights. “It doesn’t matter whether they’re black, or white, Latino, Asian-American or Native American. When you see something that’s not right, not fair, not just, you have an obligation to do something, to say something. They’re just too darn quiet. I really wanna use some other words sometimes,” Lewis told the audience of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Town Hall on Civil Rights in Washington, D.C. “I believe in the philosophy and the discipline of nonviolence, but sometimes
A team of four current and former NFL players is lobbying commissioner Roger Goodell to engage the league in fighting for the cause of social justice, even asking him to formally designate November as activism awareness month. Current players Michael Bennett (Seattle Seahawks), Torrey Smith (Philadelphia Eagles), and Malcolm Jenkins (Philadelphia Eagles), along with former player Anquan Boldin, sent Goodell and another executive a 2,800-word memorandum in August requesting the league invest significant resources in the cause. The memo, available in full here, is specific and thoughtful, but its requests would almost certainly prove divisive among fans, many of whom are
Lawrence O’Donnell had a really bad night on August 29, 2017.We draw that conclusion based on the above clip obtained by Mediaite, showing behind the scenes footage of a furious O’Donnell absolutely going bananas in what appear to be breaks in his show.The video, which lasts a full eight minutes, is a collection of clips from one evening (given O’Donnell’s consistent outfit) and show the MSNBC anchor fuming about earpiece malfunctions, blasting off obscenities and screaming at his staff. We were able to link it back to the August 29 show. After introducing a clip about President Donald Trump, O’Donnell pauses,
