The Art of the Shakedown by Hill and Tim
By Elaine on September 16, 2016
I bought this thinking it would be a how-to book. I wanted “How to set up your own Foundation for fun and profit.” Also, would like to have seen a chapter on “Ten easy steps to setting up your own secure server in a bathroom.”
I do hear there’s going to be a sequel, tentatively called “The Art of the Shakedown.” Should be interesting.

[ Reviewer was assassinated by Hillary Rodham Clinton ]
By chjhorses on September 16, 2016
Pre-ordered an autographed copy but had to return it after this week’s announcement as I was worried it was contaminated with pneumonia bacteria. I didn’t want to end up exposed to the illness like her grandkids in Chelsea’s apartment she was playing with on 9/11 after she collapsed, or the little girl she was hugging in the street afterwards. Thought about ordering the Kindle version but I thought it might open my device up to being hacked by communist countries. I wasn’t too surprised to see Tim Kaine on the front cover giving the traditional National Socialist salute, I felt it fitting. Strongly recommended for those who believe the USA isn’t anything special and should be more like the peaceful utopias of North Korea, Iran, or Cuba.
Sadly had to one star it for lack of content
By ~kpm~ on September 17, 2016
Imagine my dismay when key parts of her life were omitted, would have made for far better reading if she had included all of the below starting with flunking the D.C. Bar Exam to:
• Was removed from her House Judiciary Committee staffer job because of incompetence and lying.
• The Whitewater scandal.
• Married a serial liar and cheater, who occasionally had sexual encounters with nonconsenting partners.
• Lied about “sniper fire” in an attempt to simulate exposure to danger in a war zone.
The subject of a “vast right-wing conspiracy” that led to the impeachment and disbarment of her husband
• Took crockery, furniture, artwork and other items from the White House — had to return and/or pay for them.
• Said “what difference, at this point, does it make” about four brave people killed in Libya as a direct result of her failure to protect them on the anniversary of 9/11.
• Totally ignored the structure and rules for the handling of sensitive national security information.
• Amassed a personal fortune with “speaking fees” and payments from private sector political donors and foreign governments into transparent “foundations” in obvious exchange for future political favor.
Unbelievable turn of events……….
By Daniel B. on September 14, 2016
I was going to read this book…..I really was. But just as I got started, I found myself under sniper fire, passed out, and fell and hit my head. After that I got double vision and had to wear glasses that were so damn thick I couldn’t even see to read. As if that wasn’t enough, I then had an allergic reaction to something and started coughing so hard I spit out what looked like a couple of lizard’s eyeballs, my limbs locked up, and I passed out and fell down again, waking up only to find out I had been diagnosed with pneumonia 2 days earlier. Somehow I managed to power through it all, but it’s a good thing I was able to make a small fortune on this random small trade in the commodities market (cattle futures or some such thing) and then, miracle of all miracles, a few banks offered me a few million to just talk to their employees for a few minutes – and all that really helped out because I swear I was dead broke and couldn’t figure out how I was gonna come up with the 6 bucks to pay for this book, let alone pay the $1,500 for my health insurance this month. I still want to read it, but, honestly, what difference at this point does it make? I hear it sucks anyway.
America is great because vote for me!
By Amy Sterling Casil on September 16, 2016
This book begins well. The first sentence says, “America is great because America is good.” It goes downhill from there. My experience has been that people want to know the inside truth about their role models. I read page after page looking for tips on how to ask for big payments from rich foreign money launderers, military dictators or junk food manufacturers. It was just a bunch of malarkey even more boring than a 6th grade Common Core history book. I wanted to find out how to delete hundreds of thousands of voter registrations and emails, but no such luck. This book talks about how every vote counts. As long as it’s for Hillary Clinton! [seriously: I did skim it and it is sooooooo boring and these are two boring people with very little to say except “vote for me!”]
Deleting Emails is as Easy as 1-2-3
By Liz on September 17, 2016
I had the Clinton approval to purchase this book prior to the release date for just $353,000. My edition had the now-deleted chapters: “I Didn’t Cheat the Democrats out of the Candidate who Actually won the Primary, but if I Did, Here’s How I Would Have Done It,” “Deleting Emails is as Easy as 1-2-3,” and “How to Pretend to be Dumb When Asked Questions You Can’t Answer Truthfully.” I must say, I really learned a lot and I look forward to the shift from the freedom to choose to a complete dictatorship under the Clinton oligarchy. Honestly, I’m thrilled because making decisions and controlling my own life is so annoying!
I’m giving this book one star because the second I opened it, I got a notification from my bank that $25 was withdrawn from Hillary for America and has been subsequently withdrawn every month since. I can’t get a hold of a representative to stop the payments, but I’m okay with it since I realized my money is going to a millionaire who doesn’t need it. I figure she’s busy campaigning, fainting, and dodging press conferences so she probably doesn’t have time to raise money by giving “speeches” to Wall Street.
All in all, I appreciated reading the lies saturating every page. I learned that it’s possible to rise to the top and break all social barrier – as long as you were already at the top and had lost all sense of morality you can achieve anything! Thanks, Hillary!
The table of contents is missing some salient subject matter …
By Mary Beth Cameron on September 17, 2016
The table of contents is missing some salient subject matter: voter fraud & rigging, nixing Bernie Sanders from the race using fraud with intent, how to fire & re-hire your DNC leadership in one day, gag orders 101 & how to fake medical records.
I want to live
By Amy on September 17, 2016
Nothing new here. The book is full of lies, just like Hillary. I’m leaving a five star review so I don’t get straight up murdered.
