By Linda L Barton I must admit that I'm not surprised, but as a published author myself, I find this rather upsetting. We've all heard about Hillary Clinton's latest book, What Happened. And any of us who followed the 2016 Presidental campaign saw for ourselves how the Clinton campaign was not working on all cylinders. She ignored several states and couldn't seem to fill a room, let alone an auditorium with thousands of excited supporters like President Trump did. We repeatedly heard, how a Hillary win was a certainty and anyone who thought Donald Trump had a chance was just plain stupid and delusional. But rally after rally only proved the support for a potential President Trump was strong and growing. Then we all saw the rallies for Hillary Clinton. I don't know about you, but when I saw pictures of empty auditoriums where they had everyone all huddled together for the photo-op, I laughed myself silly. Now, we have her latest book release. First, we all saw the picture of her in Costco for a book signing. Sorry, Hillary, NONE of us believe this whole 'I'm one of the people' ploy you're doing. Then I received an email today with an article on how Amazon is removing her 1-Star reviews. WHAT??? How is this even possible? As an author, myself, I find this beyond offensive. How many of us who have sold our books on Amazon would love to have those nasty 1-Star reviews erased from our book page? I know I would. I remember the first time I read my first 1-Star review. I was damn-near suicidal. The problem was I didn't get them because my story sucked. No, I got them because of a stupid act on my part of not making sure my debut book was free of typos. I didn't learn of my mistake until I did an Amazon Free-Days promo and 26,000 copies of my typo loaded masterpiece were sitting on kindles around the world. Yeah, that's a tough lesson to live with, but my writing career survived. So, why does Hillary Clinton get to hide her 1-Star reviews? I hate to break it to her AND Amazon, readers want honesty. They don't want to be tricked into buying a book with false reviews. Here is a quote from Amazon on the subject: “Amazon said it has mechanisms in place to ‘ensure that the voices of the many do not drown out the voices of a few.’”
What??? Did I read that correctly??? If that's the case, they need to remove all the 1-Star reviews on my debut novel. Here's a taste of Hillary Clinton's reviews for What Happened - It’s the same tired list of excuses why Hillary lost. Nothing new that we haven’t heard from her and her minions before. It’s a very fast read, but a waste of money. Cheaper just to Google, Hillary Clinton’s excuses. She blames everyone but herself - Michael V.
I wrote a verified purchase review, and it has been deleted 3 times. If Amazon doesn’t like what we have to say, don’t ask for input -BabaLaon
I’m a non-partisan who has actually read this book and have to agree with many of the negative reviews here. This pretty much sums up the book: 1) It was MY turn 2) The campaign was absolutely impeccable..without any flaws whatsoever 3) It was everyone else’s fault - Manuel Beiroo
This book is exactly what we all expected, full of anger and bitterness and no actual remorse or even the hint of personal responsibility. Sure she writes the ubiquitous " I take full responsibility blahblahblah...". In fact, she blames everyone but herself. From the Russians to her emails to Kellyann Conway and fake news, no one is left alone. The only good part of this book is the ability to relive the experience of the total and complete takedown of a woman who dedicated her entire life to her own enrichment from a guy who is the exact opposite. It's nothing but poetic justice and this book is great at reliving every moment of it - Michael.
So, there you have it. Amazon is propping up a book in an entirely dishonest way. I realize that I don't have the name recognition as someone like Hillary Clinton, BUT we are both offering a product to the reading public. Readers deserve the right to leave an honest review, and it's up to the writer to take those reviews and move on.
Now, I hope you don't decide to boycott Amazon for this because there are authors who have excellent books on there for your reading enjoyment. We work hard and spend hours sweating over our computers bringing our stories to life on the pages. I just needed to voice my opinion of this practice by Amazon of handling certain people differently than the rest of us. The sad part about all of this is we all know she had a ghost-writer do the all work for her.
Okay, I'll jump down from my soapbox now. I just wanted to voice my protest at the way she is ALWAYS given cover. Come on, Hillary put on your big girl panties and face the music like the rest of us must.
I wanted to share a Podcast I recorded for my Deadly Reads Radio YouTube Channel.
The events of that day 16 years ago touched the lives and hearts of all Americans. We, here at Deadly Reads Radio, share our thoughts and where we were on the day that forever changed our country. Some may find our words offensive because we do not adhere to the rules of Political Correctness. Opinions are our own and were spoken from our hearts.
I was someone’s mother, sister, wife, daughter.
Don’t forget me.
I was someone’s father, brother, husband, and son.
We went to the towers that day
not expecting what was headed our way.
Some of us died instantly when that plane
crashed into the World Trade Center.
Death toyed with our lives, but, at least,
some of us were able to say our last good byes.
When 9/11 comes round again, hear my plea.
Please, don’t forget those who died, please don’t forget me.
Okay, I don't even know where to start. Ever since January 20, 2017 those on the Left have lost their freakin' minds. All we've heard is Resist, Resist, Russia, Russia, Trump cheated, Impeach him, and now we have this crazed outburst over what happened in Charlotteville, VA.
While I don't like the KKK any more than anyone else, since when did they become part of the Alt-right? (Whatever that is) That last thing I remember was the KKK was founded by the DEMOCRAT PARTY. So, unless the Democrats are now part of the right-wing, that claim is utter BS. Then the MSM and Democrats are pointing fingers at the White Supremacists/Neo-Nazis. Well, I hate to tell them the Nazis were NOT right-wingers, they were Democratic Socialists. Do you see where I going with this?
From my understanding, there was a group of people who got a permit to protest the removal of a Gen. Robert E Lee statue and the renaming of a park. They said the statue was part of Southern History and should remain. The night before they gathered peacefully... then the Party-Crashers showed up...uninvited and ready for violence.
I'm sure those who got the permit to protest did not want such hate groups, crashing their gathering. It destroyed their protest and cost a young woman her life. What upsets me is people are overlooking the other side of protesters. Who invited BLM and AntiFa to this gathering? Who bussed them in? Who organized their group? We all know who...George Soros!!
I am SO SICK of how Americans are allowing the ALT-Left to control the narrative. I'm sick of the lying media, spinning everything to fit THEIR agenda. I'm also sick of those weak and cowardly Republicans who say whatever they can to appear PC, so as not to offend anyone.
Well, here's a newsflash...I'M OFFENDED WITH ALL OF THEM. Fox used to be somewhere to go and get the truth, but they appear to be joining this steady destruction of the United States of America through lies and fear.
Those people wanting to destroy our history because it offends them through violence and destruction are NO DIFFERENT than ISIS. There will come a day when those same fools will wonder what happened to their freedom. They'll learn what it's like to live in a country where the government decides who lives or dies; a country where your life is not your own. I used to think Agenda 21 and the New World Order was a bunch of stupid conspiracy stuff, but no longer. My fellow Patriots, we are seeing its evil first hand.
Our Founding Fathers gave We, the People this Republic, now it's up to us to protect it. Can we do it, or is it already lost?
Well, it looks like the criminal acts in the Obama White House was far worse than any of us thought. Despite the many illegal things they did that made their way to light during the 8 years of the Obama Administration, apparently, we’ve only scratched the surface of the corruption with Obama and his minions.
Recently, the Former Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, openly admitted on CNN how he took part in the unmasking of Americans. According to Breitbart, Clapper said, “So, I did unmasking during my six-and-a-half years at DNI, Susan did as well.” He is, of course, speaking of Susan Rice and how she helped him unmask innocent Americans.
Clapper then went on to say how National Security Advisor, H.R. McMaster, did the right thing by approving Susan Rice for top security clearance this last April. Can you believe that? This is, of course, the same McMaster who is currently serving under President Trump. I smell a fox in the hen house and one that President Trump should kick to the curb.
The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Devin Nunes, confirmed there were numerous U.S. citizens involved in the transition of President Trump’s team who were unmasked; however, this information was not intercepted until after the election.
Nunes went on to say, “Details about U.S. persons associated with the incoming administration, details with little or no apparent foreign intelligence value, were widely disseminated in intelligence community reporting.”
So, if there was no intelligence value, why was there a need to unmask those targeted? I’ll tell you why. It’s because Democrats don’t like President Trump and are pissed that the American people chose him to be our President. The only reason they would do such acts is to obtain information so as to destroy the Trump presidency…no matter what laws they break in the process and the cost to freedom.
Not surprising, the crazed minions on the Left were unable to find any dirt on President Trump or those working with him. Had they. we all know they would have been screaming from the rafters non-stop that President Trump should not take the oath of office. Of course, they failed, not that they didn’t try.
As time went on, more and more holes were blown in the ‘Russia tried to steal the election’ lie being pushed by the Democrats and the MSM. Every day we've been subjected to the constant drumbeat of Russia, Russia, Russia. It doesn’t matter there is absolutely NO evidence of any wrongdoing on behalf of the Trump administration.
So, my fellow Patriots, we are 200 days into the Trump Presidency and those on the Left are still bitching, moaning, crying, and throwing tantrums because Donald J Trump is the President of the United States of America. The only problem is he’s not only having to battle the Democrats but those in his own party. I’ll save that rant for another post.
With all the cries of President Donald Trump and his
supposed corruption, I find it amazing how the MSM has ignored the numerous
conspiracies and shady dealings of the Obama administration.
According to The Gateway Pundit, Internet mogul, Kim
Dotcom has released information showing former Attorney General Loretta Lynch had
used an alias to write, and respond to, hundreds of internal emails. One of the
emails even showed Lynch even hid her identity from Justice Department
officials. The alias she used was Elizabeth Carlisle. The released information
also showed Lynch had a Twitter account under the name Elizabeth Carlisle where
she regularly posted anti-Trump, pro-Hillary Clinton articles. While using a
fake name is not a crime in and of itself, it does make one wonder of what
possible violations Lynch may have committed during her time as AG.
This practice of using aliases seems to have been a
common thing in the Obama White House, as AG Eric Holder had used three of them
during his time serving as AG.
During the 2016 election, we all learned of the private
meeting between AG, Lynch and Bill Clinton on that tarmac in Phoenix, Arizona. Of
course, we were all told it was a chance meeting, and their conversation only
consisted of chatting about grandchildren and other personal subjects. How convenient to have met that day,
considering Hillary was under federal investigation for her use of a private
email server. A server that she used to trade CLASSIFIED information back and
forth on unsecured networks.
This meeting was first reported by a local Arizona
reporter. But once it was made known, those
in the MSM did everything they could to keep it under wraps. It wasn’t until recently
that leaked emails showed both the Washington Post and New York Times did not
want to cover the story. It took Conservative Bloggers and Fox News to finally
bring the story to light.
The result of that ‘chance meeting’ had the intended
result though, as we learned from the testimony of former FBI Director, James
Comey that AG Lynch wanted the FBI to
refer to the Clinton investigation as a ‘MATTER’ to minimize any damage the
investigation could cause Hillary’s campaign.
With the constant drumbeat from the American people to
move against these corrupt players, Congressional Republicans finally made a
move against both Lynch and Comey. A
call was made for Congress to establish a second special counsel to investigate
the MANY possible crimes and misdemeanors of Obama officials during the 2016
campaign. The call is to not only investigate AG Lynch’s meeting with Bill
Clinton and her possible obstruction of the FBI’s case but also to discover why was Hillary given a pass by the FBI when Comey admitted under oath she had broken the law.
Another subject that needs investigating is how much
the Ukrainian government participated in the Clinton campaign. Another is
former National Security Advisor Susan Rice’s espionage campaign against
President Trump and his team. The possibility of Fusion GPS working with the
DNC at providing the fake dossier with lies about President Trump and the high possibility of setting up Donald Trump, Jr.
with the Russian operative has also been brought to light. The Republicans in
DC have more than enough material to prove the Democrats used lies and broke
several laws in their quest to win the White House.
It has been an uphill battle against the Democrats and
their brain dead minions in the
media. However, we have one thing on our
side…TRUTH. President Trump did not have
to lie or cheat to win the election. He
only had to share his vision for this country and its citizens. He stood before the world and claimed AMERICA
I will stand with President Trump, and I pray you will too.
We are in a Civil War against the Elites and those professing the desire
for a New World Order. We need to
remember there are more of us than of them.
We proved that we could choose our President, no matter how dirty the
other side played. We cannot give up
now. Stand strong, my fellow Patriots, our battle to save this country has just
I woke up this morning still pissed by what I witnessed last night in the Senate. On Thursday, I watched as John (Songbird) McCain swooped in like a White Knight to save the day on the vote to get this whole repeal Obamacare thing going. While it took VP Pence to break the tie, I thought, Okay, we're on our way. Then the unthinkable happened...McCain PROUDLY voted NO last night! The Republicans had believed that McCain would vote yes, but after Schumer and a couple of other Democrats went over and spoke with McCain before his vote, and they all laughed, VP Pence knew the fix was in and left because he was not needed to cast the tie-breaking vote. I cannot honestly say that I'm surprised, as he has always sided with the Democrats against the American people. However, when you see images of him celebrating with the likes of Chuck Schumer, my blood boils. After the vote last night, I watched the interview with Sen. Ted Cruz and found it amazing all the cheers and celebrating by the Democrats in the background. I shouldn't say I'm surprised because the Democrats never do put the needs of the American people above their desire for power.
What does surprise me is how the Republicans had seven damn years to come up with a great plan to replace Obamacare and did NOTHING! Don't get me wrong, I'm sure there might be a handful who really want to do it, but apparently, most of them only want to use it as a campaign cry. This has proven the Republicans had NO desire to repeal and replace Obamacare. They have proven they are NO different than the Democrats. Now, sure, they'll pound their chests and promise to uphold conservative values, but now it's as clear as day they are as phony as the Democrats.
Because of this traitorous act by the Republicans, I worry that American Patriots will stay home in 2018 and by default, give the House and the Senate to the Democrats. Should this happen, Katy-bar-the-door because the Democrats will waste NO time in impeaching President Trump and stop this wonderful movement.
So, my fellow Patriots, what's next? How do we get rid of those RINO's who are working against President Trump and the American Patriots wanting our country to prosper and be free from the evils of the One World Order? President Reagan said it best...
