Wakes occur within days of a death. The Hillary interview was 5 years later.
So, you are saying Hillary regards an interview by a non-threatening journalist as an intense event? Really? That does not speak well for her ability to be POTUS. In fact it is alarming.
So, you are saying a POTUS giggling her way through an intense event is a okay in your book? Hmm, not much of an endorsement for Hillary.
What do you think of Bush's joke about not finding no WMD's that cost 4,400 American troop's lives? Funny?

Dave tosses another shiny ball. There is a word for someone who cannot stay focused on the topic.
I am saying that Hillary's stint as Sec of State was so uninspiring that no one wanted to buy the book.
Her uninspiring role as Secretary of State was caused by a defective reset button ...

Pork-Laced Ammo Designed to Send Muslims to Hell

New, pork-laced ammunition should serve as a warning shot to would-be Islamic terrorists with plans to attack Americans, the product's makers said today.

Jihawg Ammo, the company started by Brendon and Julie Hill of Coer D'Alene, Idaho, sells boxes of gun cartridges that are made with pork products and advertised as being a deterrent to potential terrorists who may not eat pork because of their religious beliefs.

"With Jihawg Ammo, you don't just kill an Islamist terrorist, you also send him to hell," the company said in a press release earlier this month. "That should give would-be martyrs something to think about before they launch an attack. If it ever becomes necessary to defend yourself and those around you our ammo works on two levels."

Brendon Hill, who developed the technology for the cartridges with his wife, said that the idea behind the ammunition was that if a devout Muslim were thinking of carrying out a terrorist attack, they might be deterred by knowing they could be shot with bullets covered in pork, a religiously forbidden food.

He is not promoting violence toward Muslims, he insisted. In fact, the company also makes apparel promoting "Peace Through Pork."

Brendon said that he and his wife started the company as a tongue-in-cheek way to stand up to radical Islamic terrorists.

"We're having some fun with it," Hill said. "There's something to be said about using sarcasm to reveal truth about something that is false ora lie, and we're focusing on the absolute lie they tell that murdering people is good."

"We realize we've hit an emotional thread, and I'd loosely define this as a red-state/blue-state issue," Hill added. "That's where our customers are coming from and in that demographic, our product is a way to push back against political correctness. It's the proverbial middle finger back to political correctness."

Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said the Hills were trying to exploit Muslims for their own profit.

"This is just one of many individuals and companies who seek to make a quick buck exploiting the growing Islamaphobia in our society," Hooper said. "We're not motivated by giving them free publicity they so desperately seek. That's their intention -- to get people upset so that they talk about it and they make money.

"If somebody did actually use one of these bullets to target a Muslim," he added, "I am sure that a hate crime enhancement would fit."

The Hills came up with the idea while camping with friends and talking about the "Ground Zero Mosque," the name given by opponents to an Islamic cultural center in New York City that was going to open near the World Trade Center site.

They were angry over the center and what Hill called "a wave of radical Islam perpetuating from the Middle East to Europe to here."

Brendon Hill said his wife, stay-at-home mom Julie, came up with the idea and the name.

Brendon, who used to work for the NRA as a fundraiser, said he drew on his undergraduate science degree and tinkered with the formula for making the ammunition, figuring out how to add pork products to the paint on gun cartridges while ensuring that the paint still works.

They started selling their product earlier this spring.

what do you expect when Newsmax bought a couple hundred cases of it?
pretty much the same deal for any right wing book of nonsense. FOX probably has a warehouse of unopened cases of books. probably claim them as a loss on their taxes.
Good grief, you post a copy and paste whining on about how Palin's book was going down in sales then you whine because Newsmax allegedly sold Palin's books. Is that illegal for them to do so?

A Google search shows this claim first occurred on the "Democrat Underground" message board where a poster stated they had heard an ad stating such. From there it appears to have bounced around as gossip in Liberal sites.

Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Grants Itself Authority to Shut Down Any Business at Anytime
New PostsJun 21, 2014 1 5948
This is a bold move by the Obama Administration after revelations of the Obama/Holder Justice Department’s “Operation Choke Hold” to shut down “high risk” businesses that bureaucrats in the Federal Government don’t like. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau which instead of protecting consumers was formed to gobble up all consumer financial data and punish “undesirable” businesses has just unilaterally granted itself broad and unprecedented powers to shut any business down at any time merely by issuing a cease and desists letter. Are we a Communist country yet? It sure seems like we are getting close. Look out businesses that the Obama Administration doesn’t like…gun stores, porn shops, pay-day loan stores, stores that sell American and Gadsden Flags!
Read the story from Townhall.com below.
Last week the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, through the power of Dodd-Frank, passed a rule giving the agency unprecedented power to shut down businesses, no matter what the reason, at any time it wishes through a cease-and-desist order. Further, the rule puts businesses at the mercy of the CFPB and they cannot go back into operation until government approval or a court ruling is made over an issue. Subsequently because bureaucratic decisions and court rulings take a substantial amount of time to happen, businesses cannot survive during those waiting periods. Here are the details:
In a notice published in today’s Federal Register, the CFPB has announced that it has adopted its interim final rule on temporary cease-and-desist orders (C&Ds) without change. The final rule takes effect on July 18, 2014.
The CFPB is authorized to issue temporary C&Ds under Section 1053(c) of Dodd-Frank. That provision authorizes a temporary C&D as an adjunct to a cease-and-desist proceeding brought under Section 1053 against a covered person or service provider. A temporary C&D is effective immediately upon service and remains in effect unless modified or terminated administratively by the CFPB or set aside on judicial review.
The new rule comes on the heals of revelations the Department of Justice has been smothering firearms dealerships and other “high risk” entities out of business by “choking” banks and stripping funding through Operation Choke Point.
Consumer groups are pushing back against the rule and issuing a warnings to businesses everywhere about what the rule means for them. The United States Consumer Coalition in particular is sounding the alarm:
“This unprecedented rule created by the CFPB grants the agency unilateral authority to literally shut down any business overnight. It is a doubling down of Operation Choke Point (OCP), the Administration’s program to target lawful industries by intimidating banks from doing business with them. This rule allows the CFPB to immediately issue a cease-and-desist order, which terminates all business practices — and a hearing doesn’t have to be granted for 10 days, effectively shutting down businesses for at least 10 days. This is a ‘guilty until proven innocent’ tactic of the Administration that goes against every historical notion of justice under the law in America.”
flack

“The Administration got caught with their illegal intimidation tactics in Operation Choke Point, and now they are taking radical steps to ensure the goals of shutting down these lawful businesses are met. This is just the next step in using unaccountable agencies, with their ever-expanding agency powers, to meet the political goals of the Administration. This is a much more efficient way of shutting down lawful industries than just relying on intimidation. It is also no coincidence that this rule was released the day that CFPB Director Richard Cordray finished testifying at oversight hearings on the Hill.”
“This is a direct attack on every free-market business in America, and every single business should be alarmed. No business should have to operate while questioning daily whether or not they will be the victim of a cease-and-desist order. This will cause uncertainty on Wall Street and uncertainty in the job market, leading to a loss of jobs and devastating the families that rely on them, while irreversibly damaging the economy and threatening consumer choice.”

Hillary Clinton & Michelle Obama Are America’s Most Popular Politicians
""Michelle Obama’s consistency is only outshined by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s remarkable rise. According to Gallup, Mrs. Clinton currently enjoys a 66% favorable rating. First Lady Obama is very popular with women (73% favorable), but Sec. of State Clinton is beloved by women over age 50. Clinton’s favorable rating with women is 72%, but her approval rating with women over age 50 is 77%. Her favorable rating with women age 18-49 is a point higher than the First Lady’s favorable rating (67%-66%). Sec. Clinton is still reviled by Republicans (57% unfavorable rating), but her rebound has been remarkable.

Convicted on the original charge he would have received 5 years.

On the lesser charge he served only one year but received many years of probation.

Meanwhile, your obsession is proving Hillary is the one you fear!!
