Hillary Clinton's new memoir "Hard Choices" has been denied translation and English-language distribution in China, her publisher, Simon & Schuster, told NBC News on Friday. A day after the book hit shelves in the U.S., Shanghai Book Traders, which supplies foreign books to Amazon China, told executives at Simon & Schuster that the title would not be approved for sale in the country, Buzzfeed first reported. Simon & Schuster president Jonathan Karp said he hopes Chinese publishers change their minds.

Fuel their massively polluting power plants with it.
It’s so good they are worried the Chinese Will demand she be there leader.
“What do we need with a box of books in English we’ll never read? We’ll just give you campaign cash like last time, OK???”
They want to keep Communist propaganda out of their country! /s;)

Billy Jeff can reimburse her out of the cash he got from Johnny Chung.

New book make good flish lrap..
“..Billy Jeff can reimburse her out of the cash he got from Johnny Chung.”
Nice to see someone remembers Chinagate. The Repubs had better remember it in the 2016 election fight...
well hell, there’s another 10 books worth of royalty lost forever...
Remember the Senate hearings on Chinese cash, and the over 100 Chinese that had been subpoenaed, and fled the nation rather than testify?
Imagine the level of contempt the Chinese leaders must feel toward Hillary if they’re willing to alienate her — a possible future president of the U.S. — by banning her book.
Unlike the thousands of Hillary ‘’supporters’’ who have meekly succumbed to her extortion tactics by forking over $200,000 in speaking fees to her campaign so she won’t destroy them with the I.R.S. and so on if she wins the presidency, the Chinese apparently couldn’t care less about any future payback Hillary might have in store for them.
In Britain, Hillary’s book is having a different type of reception: although it hasn’t been officially banned, it might as well be, since it’s only 94th on Amazon.UK’s bestseller list.
