Hillary Clinton: God Help Me Sell Books
Hillary Clinton describes herself as a “nasty woman”. Few people disagree. Because Hillary Clinton is a repulsive person.
She morphs into whomever she needs to be to for personal gain. And she will do so to sell books.
Recall that Clinton’s last book, Hard Choices flopped. As Daniel Greenfield noted,
Paying Hillary Clinton a $14 million advance for a badly ghostwritten book about the time she did nothing as Secretary of State proved to be a really bad choice.
Publishing sources said that Clinton has sold 177,236 hardcovers. E-book sales aren’t available, but her numbers are very low, said the sources. Even at 200,000 total sales, simple math finds that for Simon & Schuster to cover the $14 million advance, each book would have had to sell for about $70. Amazon offers it for $20.94, about $14 off the $35 list price. It has dropped to 103rd in Amazon sales, compared to 10th for Blood Feud.
Of course authors don’t receive more than a fraction of their sales anyway. No matter what eBook sales are, publishers don’t currently make much money off them.
So why wouldn’t Hillary Clinton want a bit of divine intervention this time around?
As it turns out, Hillary Clinton wants to be a preacher. I know; shocking. Supposedly, Hilary Clinton had a long time dream of being a pastor. Her claim is she wanted to help less fortunate than she.
In an interview in The Atlantic by Bill Shillady, a long time pastor friend of the Clintons, Shillady shares revelations about Hillary and her faith.
The Atlantic reports:
“Two books are slated to come out of Clinton world early this fall: What Happened, Clinton’s personal account of the election, and Strong for a Moment Like This, Shillady’s book of devotionals.
Shillady, who runs the United Methodist City Society in New York, wrote the book at Clinton’s suggestion; he said his is the only book for which Clinton has agreed to write a foreword. Clinton and her staffers read and approved the copy ahead of time.
“Given her depth of knowledge of the Bible and her experience of caring for people and loving people, she’d make a great pastor,” Shillady said.
Now, as Clinton works to rehabilitate her public image and figure out the next steps after her brutal November loss, religion is taking a central role. After long months of struggling to persuade Americans that she is trustworthy, authentic, and fundamentally moral, Clinton is lifting up an intimate, closely guarded part of herself. There are no more voters left to lose. In sharing her faith, perhaps Clinton sees something left to win, whether political or personal.”
So we are to believe that Hillary Clinton now wants to share her “real” self with the world.
If that’s the case, then the Hillary Clinton we saw was the fake Hillary? I suspect the Hillary Clinton we know so well is the real Hillary Clinton. And the notion that Hillary now wants to showcase her love of God is merely a snake oil sales revival at the outskirts of town, big tent and all.
One’s walk with God doesn’t need advertising. Biblical values are demonstrated in actions, particularly the small things people do for one another.
Ironically, on that count if anyone needs divine intervention its Hillary Clinton. Instead of helping the most vulnerable in their time of need, the Clinton profiteered. Take Haiti for example.
“We hate Hillary,” one protester fumed. “Bill Clinton signed laws to incarcerate black people. All the Clintons are doing is more jails, more projects, more welfare. We need opportunity just like anybody else.”
Another protester said:
“They pretend to like us; they’ve been deceiving us,” the protester continued. “It’s time for us to wake up. We don’t want the Clintons. They are criminals. They are evil.”
The devastating hurricane in 2010 provoked worldwide concern for its citizens.
Countries around the world, as well as private and philanthropic groups such as the Red Cross and the Salvation Army, provided some $10.5 billion in aid, with $3.9 billion of it coming from the United States.
According to Dinesh D’Souza’s research for his book “Hillary’s America”:
“Bill Clinton was the designated UN representative for aid to Haiti. Following the earthquake, Bill Clinton had with media fanfare established the Haiti Reconstruction Fund. Meanwhile, his wife Hillary was the United States secretary of state. She was in charge of U.S. aid allocated to Haiti. Together the Clintons were the two most powerful people who controlled the flow of funds to Haiti from around the world.”
Over time the Haitians started to realize the millions raised to fix their homes, restore schools, and create better jobs never made it to Haiti.
Haitians hate Clintons. And with good reason. The Clintons have run Haiti like their own private plantation.
Yet Hillary is trying to sell herself as a compassionate person who cares deeply for the poor?
It doesn’t stop there.
Hillary Clinton is famous for covering up her husband’s 20-year-old affairs, sexual harassment, and rape towards women.
When these allegations came to light, Hillary strongly denied the allegations saying they were a “right wing conspiracy theory.” However, as we all know now, the allegations were true. Moreover, there were many more stories of the Clintons covering for Bill Clinton’s philandering.
And the Clintons likely have done far worse than stealing and philandering.
While it is true God forgives and welcomes sinners, it’s clear that Hillary Clinton wants a spiritual makeover for one reason: to sell books.
