Will John Boltons head explode? This guy should chill!
Surrender to neo-cons lies is not an option!

Question: How does a book become an overnight best seller on the New York Times book list? When the childrens book series by J.K Row lings (Harry Potter) released her last book; The philosophers stone, sometime back in July, people were lined up in front of bookstores to buy it. Evidentially that was a best seller. I cant fathom people camping out over night for the new book by John Bolton, Surrender is no option on World Ahead publishing. But, zap! It hit the top of the New York Times bestseller list. I have a theory. And this goes for Ann Coulter too!
Dianetics, The church of Scientologys manifesto was on the best sellers lists for years. How did they do it? Each member of the church was required to buy the book once a week; the church would recycle the book to re-sell on the market. I have the feeling that World Ahead Publishers had right wing-nuts buy the book on E-Bay or go to book store and pre-order it. How else would a book debut at number one? The authors do not go on the talk show circuit until the book is on the book shelve. Ann Coulters seems to debut number one a lot, it seems like a lot of behind the scenes maneuvering by her book publishers and P.R staff. Believe me, there is no high demand for her type of books. Right wing publishers create an illusion for public demand. It was rumored when she has a book signing in some bookstore, her P.R people would hirer extras to pose as Ann Coulter fans. Even if Ann Coulter ran for office in some red state, like Allen Keys she would not get 5% of the vote.
On the latest piece of propaganda crap by Mister Bolten, is the same old paint by numbers fear mongering from the Neo-Cons. This book attempts to sell the war on Iran. His facts are sliced and diced by invaginated testimony from dubious sources. Maybe Mister Bolton had a taxi ride with Curb Ball but I highly doubt it. These zombies from the American Enterprise Institute just keep yammering on and on about the so-called worldwide war on terrorism which is another paranoiac delusion. One day, somebody will get really get exasperated with their rhetoric and perform a terrorist act on them and it wont from a far left fanatic or so-called Islamo-Fascists, it will come from a disgruntled Republican. Speaking of Republican Bolter was once a supporter of Barry Goldwater. He might want to review his speeches again. Goldwater was no fan of a New World Order, if it came from the left or right.
One thing I can this about this Teutonic, milk mustached, belligerent tragedy, he was always a consistent reactionary unlike his other Neo-Con compatriots who were former Scoop Jackson freaks and Jewish Trotskyites. From the get go, he was right wing to a fault. He is member of NRA, which is typical. He is not much on Christianity; he is only into secular pursuits like making the USA an empire. Via cronyism he became a short-lived ambassador to the United Nation. Imagine an anti-Semite being a member of ACLU? Well, this anti-Un nut became a member of the United Nations! Only in America this could happen. The only reason that Bolter gets invited on talk shows is the producers want him to have a temper tantrum, which would make great television.
The result of Boltons new book will go into the toilet of history. The only people that will read it 50 years from know will be professors of abnormal psychology who specializes in psychopathic liars. Good luck John, have a great life!

A groovy video!

1. We discussed this here on DU a couple or more years ago
were it not for large volume institutional sales, these books couldn't be sold at Walmart for toilet paper. RW groups buy them up and give them away, or sell them for pennies on the dollar of cost. There is no public market for these books. Never has been.

2. Scaife, et. al, buy in bulk. It's bullshit. The only book I'd read by Bolton would
be one that described, in painful, likely unintentionally comedic detail, his adventures at PLATO's RETREAT, to include a critique of the salad bar....!
