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.

Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer’s (N.Y.) efforts to unify Democrats and prevent a shutdown are complicated by lawmakers with presidential hopes who are pushing for a hard-line stance against any short-term spending measure that doesn’t protect certain young immigrants from deportation. Senate Democrats such as Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and Kamala Harris of California have signaled they will not support a short-term spending bill that leaves the fate of these immigrants, often called Dreamers, up in the air.

This therapy session between NBA officials and players at All-Star weekend can’t come soon enough. As USA TODAY Sports reported last week, the sustained tension between the league’s referees and so many of its players has become such a concern that they will have a meeting in Los Angeles next month. Saturday night brought more flare-ups, as the Toronto Raptors were incensed at late calls in their loss against the Golden State Warriors.

Guess which state has the highest poverty rate in the country? Not Mississippi, New Mexico, or West Virginia, but California, where nearly one out of five residents is poor. That’s according to the Census Bureau’s Supplemental Poverty Measure, which factors in the cost of housing, food, utilities and clothing, and which includes noncash government assistance as a form of income. Given robust job growth and the prosperity generated by several industries, it’s worth asking why California has fallen behind, especially when the state’s per-capita GDP increased approximately twice as much as the U.S. average over the five years ending in

People have called the image racist and inappropriate. Television footage showed clothing in one of the South African stores scattered everywhere.

NBC plans to televise any players who refuse to stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl, but there may be nothing to show. It appears that NFL players are no longer taking a knee during the national anthem, namely because none of the teams with still-active protesters has qualified for the postseason. By the end of the regular season, only five teams featured at least one player regularly sitting or kneeling on the sidelines for the anthem: the Seattle Seahawks, the San Francisco 49ers, the Miami Dolphins, the New York Giants and the Oakland Raiders.

Mitt Romney took a swipe at Donald Trump on Monday, condemning the crude comments the president was said to have made about Haiti and African countries -- calling them “inconsistent (with) America’s history and antithetical to American values” with a reference to Martin Luther King, Jr. The poverty of an aspiring immigrant’s nation of origin is as irrelevant as their race,” Romney tweeted. “The sentiment attributed to POTUS is inconsistent w/America’s history and antithetical to American values. May our memory of Dr. King buoy our hope for unity, greatness, & ‘charity for all.’”

This Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the NAACP wants man-made global warming to be seen as a civil rights issue, arguing King’s vision of a society free of racial injustice can’t be achieved without addressing warming. “We see climate change as a civil rights issue,” Jacqueline Patterson, head of the NAACP’s environmental and climate justice program, said in an online radio spot for the Yale Center for Environmental Connection. Environmental activists have been increasingly framing global warming as a matter of “environmental justice,” since “minority and low-income populations are disproportionately affected by global warming,” Patterson told Yale’s online radio Climate

Ever since Donald Trump entered the political arena, his intelligence has been viciously attacked and his supporters have been labeled as moronic deplorables. In a recent Trump tweet, the president responded to the most recent attack by saying he is a stable genius. The mainstream media never bothered checking evidence of Obama´s intelligence before one historian declared him "the smartest man with the highest IQ ever to be elected to the presidency", even though his academic records were sealed. What these attacks do prove is who the real brains are and who are the dummies: Alan Dershowitz may be for real

A crazed, bug-eyed Cory Booker, junior senator from New Jersey, blasted Department of Homeland Security secretary Kristjen Nielsen during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday on immigration. Booker became so unhinged in his staged outrage that he repeatedly threatened Nielsen, with clenched fists pointed in her direction. Equal to Booker´s overt violation of Nielsen´s right to be treated without hostility and intimidation was the deranged content of his tirade. Nielsen had stated earlier she did not hear the president say the "s-hole" word at last week´s White House meeting on DACA. Booker went ballistic and accused Nielsen of covering up

Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) on Monday announced she plans to boycott President Trump´s State of the Union address to Congress at the end of the month, joining a handful of other Democratic lawmakers who are skipping the annual event. "I´m here on Martin Luther King Jr. Day to say I will not be going to the State of the Union," Jayapal said in a video posted on social media. "I think it is absolutely unacceptable to see the racism and the hatred coming out the White House in a way in which this president is fueling the flames of divisiveness across

From his perch in the Ohio governor’s mansion, Republican John Kasich is keeping a keen eye on President Trump’s every move and showing a willingness — some say eagerness — to hurl rotten tomatoes toward the leader of his party when he gets upset with the act.He has become a go-to anti-Trump source for the media and often doesn’t even wait for the press to call. Instead, he leaps in to pile on after presidential missteps.While insisting he wants Mr. Trump to succeed, Mr. Kasich has pointedly refused to rule out mounting a primary challenge against the president in 2020.

TRENTON, N.J. — Days before his inauguration as New Jersey’s 56th governor, Phil Murphy had Hollywood on his mind. The 60-year old Democrat had just read a headline about reshoots on “All the Money in the World,” which had been done in a hurry to remove disgraced actor Kevin Spacey from the movie. (Snip) Murphy is ready to end his obscurity. On Tuesday, when he is sworn in, New Jersey will become one of just eight states where Democrats run every branch of government. If Murphy has his way, New Jersey will become a proving ground for every liberal policy

Three-quarters of the members of a federally chartered board advising the National Park Service abruptly quit Monday night out of frustration that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had refused to meet with them or convene a single meeting last year. The resignation of nine out of 12 National Park System Advisory Board members leaves the federal government without a functioning body to designate national historic or natural landmarks. It also underscores the extent to which federal advisory bodies have become marginalized under the Trump administration. In May 2017, Zinke suspended all outside committees while his staff reviewed their composition and work. In a
