Report: Hillary Has Already Sold One Million Copies of Her Book (To Whom?)
Weekly Standard ^ | 5/27/14 | Daniel Halper

Posted on 05/27/2014 12:22:03 PM PDT by jimbo123

Hillary Clinton has already sold one million copies of her book, according to Mike Allen. Her book, Hard Choices, is set to be released next month.

"EXCLUSIVE: The initial printing of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s 'Hard Choices,' out June 10 from Simon & Schuster, was 1 million books – and sold out after the publisher’s unconventional “reveal” of giving Vogue a Mother’s Day excerpt. That’s a real spike, and the figure doesn’t include retail preorders: Bookstores and other retailers ordered 1 million for further sale to the public -- a seal of approval from the booksellers that people will want to read the book," Allen reports.

Since her book isn't ranking in the top 100 on Amazon or Barnes and Noble, who are these mystery buyers of her book? Boko Haram? The Muslim Brotherood? Clinton Foundation Corporate Shakedown victims? George Soros? Bill and Chelsea's African Dictator buddies? Huma Abedin?

a warehouse.

(To Whom?)

Anyone remember "Reflections of a Public Man"? I think the same people bought this.

Unions, PACS and “friends” buy them in large quantities so that later on she can “self fund” campaigns, etc and it skirts the donation laws. Been happening for years, no?

Her cronies’ organizations buy them and give them out to droves of secretaries, mail office workers and receptionists who quietly drop them in the garbage on the way home from work. And they’re bought and paid for and stored in storage units.

As I have stated on many previous threads, the publishing industry is a method to provide payola to favored tools of the system.

Obama had two book deals by graduation...leftist payola

All the Clinton book deals....leftist payola.

Like MSNBC or CNN the economics has nothing to do with it, it is all about money and spreading disinformation.

Politico says those retail stock sales aren't included in the 1 million sales quoted today. They said that's an additional 1 million in sales. It's all B.S.

Probably some insider trading scam. I wonder how many times some of them have been sold.

Every public and school library in the country will purchase multiple copies of any book by a prominent Democratic politician.

They don't even have to order them, they're sent like the Record of the Month from Columbia House whether you want it or not.

Yep, and in a couple months most will be laying in a clearance bin marked down to $2.99. The stores are willing to take the financial hit though, because they can't afford to offend "Her Heinous" in case she becomes president someday...

True. Are you aware that Amazon has a ‘button’ for books by authors or publishers they do not want to sell or promote, and they actually hinder those sales by conservatives? Hatchette publishers has been in a lawsuit with Amazon over this and the books they publish.

Amazon is left, left, left.

Book publishing does lend itself to money laundering and bribery. We know of cases where people, unions, whatever, have done exactly that. Bought thousands of copies and stored them in a warehouse, bought them and handed them out free, bought them and sent them straight to the landfill.

I don't see, though, why they should have to actually spend paper and ink printing them if they are going straight to landfill. Simply transfer the money, and show on the ledger that a million copies were printed and delivered. Report to the press that a million copies were sold. Who is going to bother to verify as long as taxes are paid on the moneys transferred and received?

So in the modern era that is my assumption. The books were never printed, simply credited as printed as the money changed hands.

Or they have been sold to distributors. There is no way that she has 1 million orders from individuals who want to read it.

One of the advantages of the Liberals controlling literally everything from academia to government to, in this case, the publishing industry.

Liberals, as despicable as they are, take care of each other, and make sure that each "member" of their "club" makes money.

They've got it figured out. Liberals are in the "end game" waiting for checkmate, while Conservatives are salivating over the thought of picking up a mere handful of Congressional seats in November.

Considering she will get around 50 million votes in 2016 since we have such a split country.....the Republican hopefully will get 50 million and one. 1 million is not great. Hardly worth bragging about. I don’t think this is worthy of a conspiracy theory since 1 million books out of 50 million Democrats is epic fail.

Leftists are leftists. I have one payment left and then canceling my Amazon credit card, which was a good offer but is actually the horrific GE credit at 25%. Leftists gouge. I never pay interest, but I feel sorry for the poor smucks who get caught.

Hey that $6 billion that disappeared from DOJ while she was SECR of State could be laundered quite easily as a book company purchase, just saying...imho. How much is each book? Hardbacks can sell for as much as $20-30 ea and paperbacks $7-15 ea, and that times 1 million copies=Clean money? or not.

I absolutely believe it. Like I’ve said many many times - we are going through a moron apocalypse. People who are nothing more than empty headed automatons programmed by Democrats and the media, who will do anything, vote for anybody, and buy anything they are told to buy. This is exactly how Obama won twice. I talk to them everyday as customers, you can’t tell them the media is pulling their leg, using them, because then they become infuriated because to accept the truth would be to acknowledge that they truly are brain dead morons. I was talking to a woman the other day who told me the Benghazi attack was fake, that nobody was killed and it was all created by Republicans. Democrats LOVE people like her and there are MILLIONS of them!

There is a major fight going on between Yahoo and publishers. Yahoo has warning certain publishers that it might take weeks for them to ship books by several publishing companies (including the latest J. K. Rowlings book). I imagine even those publishers not bullied by Yahoo are reluctant to allow this octopus to get a grip on them. Here is a link describing some of this battle.

As defenders of freedom, we hat FR should be especially annoyed at Yahoo for these tactics.

Has anyone actually seen one of her books in the clearance rack?

I once purchased, shamefully admitted, one of her books as a gag gift. It was in the wisdom of the ages section at B&N, many years after publishing. I had to buy a book from the remainder bin, not by her, to get a sticker to transfer it to her book to cover her face on the back cover.

My ruse went fine until my friend told the recipient, but look, the remainder sticker covers her face! Busted.

This is not political money.
This is private activity sale/royalties and all the money goes into the private pocket.
Have to do this before the official campaign begins.
Just filling the personal checking account - that’s all.
