Hillary Team Calls for Media Blackout of Anti-Clinton Books
Breitbart ^ | 7-25-14 | Alexander Marlowe

Posted on 07/25/2014 11:09:38 AM PDT by afraidfortherepublic

Soon there will be three anti-Clinton books on the market, which is apparently enough to have gotten under the skin of Team Hillary.

The First Family Detail by Ronald Kessler, set for release next month, will join Clinton, Inc. by the Weekly Standard’s Daniel Halper and Blood Feud by Ed Klein on bookshelves. Yesterday we reported that Clinton, Inc. has shot up the charts and now both Halper and Klein’s books are outselling Hillary Clinton’s recent memoir Hard Choices.

“With Klein, Halper and Kessler, we now have a Hat Trick of despicable actors concocting trashy nonsense,” Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill said in an interview with the Washington Examiner. “Their behavior should neither be allowed nor enabled, and legitimate media outlets who know with every fiber of their beings that it is completely made up should not get down in the gutter with them.”

What does he mean “not allowed”? The interview doesn’t detail any specific behavior that drew Team Hillary's ire beyond the simple act of writing a book. Without the benefit of full context, it appears as though Hillary's flack is suggesting the books be banned. At a minimum he is imploring the overwhelmingly pro-Clinton mainstream press to freeze out these authors and prevent their ideas and findings from being discussed on the media stage.

This is latently hypocritical coming from the folks surrounding the former First Lady, who famously defended “the right to debate and disagree" on the campaign trail in 2008.

"No wonder there is a mainstream media blackout of my book -- the Clintons have issued their edicts," Daniel Halper said an in email. "They are proving the thesis of my book."

Klein has said that "all" of the criticism of his book has been directed at him personally and not the facts and arguments...

Good luck banning ‘Blood Feud’ Hillary. That book made me laugh out loud over and over. It has the ring of truth. It is dynamite.

***Klein has said that “all” of the criticism of his book has been directed at him personally and not the facts and arguments...***

That’s the way it is when the left is faced with the truth. Wasn’t it Bill himself who coined the phrase: ‘the politics of personal destruction’?

When she sent the email about it, did it come from hilary@ingsoc.gov?

She is running contrary to the advice of one of her cherished heroes:

” Communist must never be opinionated or domineering, thinking that he is good in everything while others are good in nothing; he must never shut himself up in his little room, or brag and boast and lord it over others.”
~Mao

“If the opposition disarms, all is well and good. If it refuses to disarm, we shall disarm it ourselves.”
~ Hilary's Uncle Joe

“Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views.”

~William F. Buckley, Jr.

Hillary, apparently, is not against engaging in questionable behavior, she is just against the reporting of said behavior.

Halper was supposed to talk about Hillary’s health on Megyn earlier this week, and said the info would stop her run. But they never got around to it.

Now you’ve got me curious about that new book. May have to check it out before The Clintons succeed in getting the book banned, burned and buried. Just discussing such a Media Blackout is a loser for Hillary’s electoral prospects. Somebody like Rand Paul or Ted Cruz would have a field day pointing out how oppressive and inappropriate such an unauthorized action would be.

Whatever happened to that Hillary video - or it may have been a full length feature movie - that someone was putting together that was supposed to come out during the campaign? She lost the primary and it never came out. Hopefully it will emerge this time around, even if she’s not in the race. We have Chelsea to think about and it’s never too early to get the truth out about that family.

“despicable actors concocting trashy nonsense”

Though meant to attack others, it sounds like an accurate description of the Clintons.

“Congenital liar” by William Safire also described Hillary well. Bill too.

The sad state of the MSM is shown in how much they will lie for Hillary.

And lie for Obama.

Since her actual accomplishments appear to have been more "dysfunctional", and not based on reality...maybe her handlers figured out "Hard Choices" was being taken less seriously by the public, that the only non-fiction part was the books title...and how it relates more to her "husband's" frequent uncontrollable physical disposition...than her leadership qualities.

Where is the best place on line to buy the book, “Blood Feud”, or is your copy for sale? I have nothing against “used” books.

Amazon.com is what I usually use and they offer used books from independent shops.

On April 28, 2003, who said:

"I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration, somehow you're not patriotic, and we should stand up and say, "We are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration!"

Hint: It was not barack obama.
