If the book is as good as the movie it will be a keeper. I think I’ll get a few copies to give to some teens I know.

Nah.

RUSH, who long has had lefty book-seller shenanigans played on him, heard about this and harped, harped, harped, harped on this big-time.

Dinesh rocks and also was advertising with Rush, who was pissed about this and decided to give Dinesh The Full Monica, the better to sell and also to STICK IT to this Costco lib contributor.

REALLY GLAD FOR DINE$H..!

His next one should be either about Bengazi, Saul Alinsky, or Bunkerville, I think.

I might have reservations if I was considering a significant purchase of Costco shares.

"His next one should be either about Bengazi, Saul Alinsky, or Bunkerville, I think."

THIS movie was about Alinsky a LOT! I'd say at least 15 minutes of it focused on him, including reenactments of his meetings with Hillary, snippets of old speeches, and lots of discussion of Rules for Radicals.

It's a great, moving, and in a couple of places funny movie. Conservatives need to SUPPORT it.

Well…there was some good stuff, there. But I think the average Joe really, really does not realize how far-reaching Alinsky's contribution was to leftist activism and the cultural take-over we see of the country.

I think his life could be profitably shown in the same relief that was done for Obama's father in 2016.

Freepers, talk-show hosts, lefties, professors (but I repeat myself) and real politicos know Alinsky, but few others. Yet we've all been effected by him.

I do concede, though, that those 10 or so minutes were very good.

Anyway were I Dinesh right now I have no idea HOW I would decide on a film because the past two years especially have presented a dizzying array of very worthy topics.

I think even if I were finishing post-production on America I would have been sorely temped to be out in the sweltering hills of Bunkerville to document the heady events that went on there...

I just bought the Kindle edition tonight. Amazon has no problem selling books by conservative authors. They like the money I suppose!

Say what you want about Jeff Bezos’ politics, the man is not afraid or ashamed to make money. Unlike the sycophants at costco.

The son of the man who started the predecessor company to Costco does not like to be confused be the dangers of today’s world and the systematic destruction of America and Israel by the Obama administration. Mr. Costco Bigshot would not recognize a terrorist if he tripped over one. It is astounding how astoundingly dense and closed to facts some of the big entrepreneurs are.

After two grand slams, he's got carte blanche to do whatever he wants. He's now officially the Michael Moore of the Right, which makes us look GREAT.

Interesting that CostCo didn’t remove Hillary’s book, or if they did, they didn’t mention it. So how come they say they removed the America book but no mention of the disastrous Hillary book?

If the CEO is a majority share owner, he can believe and do whatever he wants. It would be easy to feel invincible, at least until the company collapses.

I got the Audio version last month from Audible.

Highly recommend, for those who like audio books, or people with vision problems.
