Author Emily Gray Tedrowe – Military Mocker, Fashion Disaster.

I’d written a review on Amazon of Blue Stars – a fiction book written by English Professor and Occupy Supporter, Emily Gray Tedrowe. Though this book sounds as if it’s pro military, a few chapters in, it’s simple for anyone that supports our military, that Emily is mocking the military (and Latino women).

Amazon deleted my review.

I tried to repost, it didn’t go through.

So I posed the review on  my website.

As an aside…who dresses this woman? No, those glasses don’t make you look superior, they make you look desperate for validation. Or looking to date a clown.

Blue Stars Novel – Occupy Author Bashes Military

Do you believe the military deserve NO MONEY? Because the author of  Blue Stars (an anti-military book in the guise of a novel) does. Emily Gray Tedrowe pledged her support to the Occupy wackos – and the Occupy wackos believe that military should earn NO money. And of course, that Academia should earn the most money (selfish much?).

This book reads like liberal anti-military propaganda because it is. It is belittling and condescending toward military – and discriminates against Latinos – painting them as stupid, sleazy, drinking, organic food hating (seriously, the intellectual Ellen takes military Lacey to Wholefoods and Lacey is intimated by the mist being sprayed over the fresh vegetables…and…eggplant)

The military wives are painted as crass, trailer park trash. Lacey is a drinking, cursing, sex nypmh, who has an anxiety attack in Wholefoods because it’s “healthy.”

But Ellen, the Democrat/Liberal, of course, is intelligent (translation: pretentious), reads Edith Wharton, P.D. James, drinks Soy milk, hates Bush, reads Vogue, The New Yorker and then donates them to the hospital. She also has, of course, hired help for her house… Not doubt Ellen is a version of Emily.

My father was military, we have  deployed family who  spent 2 tours in Iraq and his wife  is a graduate of Emory and is an ER doctor.

But I guess educated beautiful women don’t fit the Democrat narrative that military spouses dye their hair with bleach, drink beer for breakfast, and sleep around.

This book is so ridiculous, so full of Michael Moore cliches, nothing original.

On page one you’ll find all you need to about the author’s intent of the book: “The Iraq war; brutal and pointless.”

(Let’s not forget, under Obama, we have 3 wars and he authorized military action in Libya, ramped up covert war in Yemen,

expanded drone warfare into Somalia, deployed troops in Uganda, South Sudan, the Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and expanded Special Operations forces into 75 countries!)

If you’re a military family looking for a positive, heartfelt, story, this is not it.

Tedrowe states this book was based on the Walter Reed scandal of 2007.

Ironically, she fails to mention the VA Scandal under the Obama administration.

In Walter Reed, none of our Vets died…under Obama’s watch – Vets are waiting YEARS for benefits and at least 3 Veterans have died under this liberal administration.

Our Military should be held in high esteem – by all of America.

And if not for the military and the wars that have been fought – Emily Gray Tedrowe would not be able to publish such discriminatory, prejudiced, pretentious, propaganda and call it “literature.”

I wonder if Tedrowe is going to donate the money she makes from this work to Wounded Warriors? Or, was this book simply an exploitation of political themes in order to pad her bank account, pay her expensive mortgage, and live in hypocrisy?

If you value our military – skip this.

If you are military, I’d like to say THANK YOU, I appreciate you and your service to our Country – no deployment is in vain and at least you have the courage to stand up for America while people like Tedrowe cowardly sit behind a desk and pen, preen and preach.

Girlscouts Hate White Cops – (not really, but that’s What CBS wants you to think!)

On February 10th 2015 – the GirlScouts were hijacked and humiliated by Christin Ayers,a spokesperson for the Division of Racist Hate in the Democrat Party who claims she’s a journalist (hails from Berkley – shocker!)

CBS KPIX (San Francisco – odd that’s where Obama is fundraising at the moment!) posted a video and story claiming that there is a new Radical Brownie troop who looks like the Girl Scouts but instead of selling cookies, they are selling Social Justice because “white cops kill black people.”

Nowhere in the hit job on cops, did Ayers (related to Bill?) say the Black Panther supporting cop hating group of girls WERE NOT A PART OF GIRLSCOUTS.

She carefully worded the piece to that it would gain attention (stir up hate) and appear that this group was a part of GirlScouts. She ‘tagged’ the Girlscouts in her article initially, then after public outcry, she (or CBS) changed tag from GirlScouts to Scouts. However, the damage (attention seeking hate driving) has already been committed.

The GirlScouts contacted me and said, “This organization does not represent us.”

If this group of mentally abused children do not represent you, then perhaps the Girlscouts should lead by example and stand up loudly and very publicly to the Hijacking of their brand by Democrats, people calling themselves ‘’journalists” who are nothing more than PR Reps and asking for an apology and clarification from CBS KPIX.

Christin Ayers is a general assignment reporter for San Francisco  CBS KPIX 5 News who states her highlight in life is meeting with Obama.

Do not rely on CBS, Christin Ayers nor any of their brand (hello, Brian Williams!) for  honest information.

Clip of “Radical Brownies” saying “White cops kill black people!”

“If people in the media cannot decide whether they are in the business of reporting news or manufacturing propaganda, it is all the more important that the public understand that difference, and choose their news sources accordingly.”

― Thomas Sowell

Amazon Flushing Conservative Author Reviews?

To recap: Amazon deleted then blocked my reviews. After I took Amazon’s censorship public on Social Media, they said they were going to reinstate my reviews and reviewing privileges. However, reviews were still missing.

I contacted an author of a book I was sure I had reviewed some time ago – but was missing from my reviews: Dr.  Brian Anse Patrick. Dr. Patrick wrote 10 Commandments of Propaganda. I explained the situation and wondered if he kept copies of his reviews and had a copy of my review.

I have never talked to Dr. Patrick before (however, I’ve always meant to write him an appreciation letter…along with David Mamet!) and was thrilled when he responded.

He explained he does not keep copies of reviews, but does keep track of the number of reviews and notices when new reviews arrive. He stated after my letter, he checked Amazon and noticed there were a few new reviews his book, but the number of reviews are the same, pointing to the fact that some prior reviews could have been flushed by Amazon.

My reviews that are missing and Amazon refuses to repost:

Stonewalled – Sharyl Attkinson (posted on 2/1/15)

The Cave and the Light – Arthur Herman (posted on 2/1/15)

How to Debate Leftist and Win posted on (2/1/15) (Ben Shapiro)

Also missing 100 Essential Thinkers by Philip Stokes which I left one star on because it was Pro-Marxist and had I known that, I would not have bought it.  This review posted in December and had angry comments directed at  me (didn’t bother me but find it interesting that this book was included in the reviews Amazon flushed).

And of course, 10 Commandments of Propaganda by Brian Anse Patrick. Not sure when I posted but pretty sure it was quite a-while ago.

I gave all these books (which were verified purchases) 5 stars and great reviews, with the exception of the book that promoted Marxist (Collective) Philosophers.

If you’re a reviewer, keep copies of your reviews (I suggest publishing them to a free blog site so you’ll have a public copy of them). And if you’re an author, keep a copy of your reviews  and check them from time to time.  Regardless of political affiliation. Regardless of the product you review or sell.

“When the world is overloaded with information, it becomes important to know who to trust.” Amazon has made it obvious to me, you can’t trust them.

Amazon Still Deleting Conservative Reviews

Jack and Rocky: You thought you won your battle with Amazon!


Well, I thought the battle with Amazon had been won. They reinstated my account, and they said they reinstated my reviews, however, the reviews I’d written on February 1st and posted (For Stonewalled, How To Debate Leftists, Philosophy 100 Essential Thinkers (posted on 12/30 but I gave it 1 star because it was pro-communism), and The Cave and the Light… were NOT reposted. So last night, I reposted the missing reviews  again  they were published (got the review email that they were live) and then woke up this morning…and….they are gone again: Which again, points to someone  in Amazon flushing political reviews. I have a few older political book reviews still in place, but the ones mentioned above, I posted on 2/1 – only to find out on 2/6 they were gone, then ALL my reviews were gone, then Amazon blocked from creating reviews. Then after several letters to Amazon (see earlier posts), help with some social media warriors,  Amazon said they made a mistake, and reinstated my account, Now the funny thing is, The reviews I posted that went missing were all posted on Feb 1st – so, someone might point out, hey, maybe it’s a glitch with reviews done that day…

However, my review for the Kindle Fire 6 which I also did that day, is still live on the review page.

So, rating Conservative political books 5 stars – ZAPPED – rating Kindle Fire 6 – remains.

I’ve sent yet another email into Amazon. There are other reviews missing also, though I’m not sure which ones. Amazon was showing I had 95 reviews written as of last night when I updated the missing reviews, however, this morning it’s only showing 81. I think some older reviews are missing – I’m pretty sure I did a review for The Ten Commandments of Propaganda

by Brian Anse Patrick quite awhile ago and it’s no longer there.

What Amazon is doing is frightening – quietly deleting reviews – whether for politics or recipe books, someone paid for the experience (or product) – Amazon most often receives the money, and then due to complaints or perhaps personal ideology, deletes reviews. I don’t care if you took time to craft it well or made it brief – you took the time. As a consumer, I count on reviews and I am smart enough to look at a wide variety of reviews, look at other reviews the reviewers have made (it’s easy to spot a phony) and then make my choice. Now, just imagine what Amazon is doing and apply it to our government controlling the internet. I can barley get any answers from Amazon! Have you ever tried to deal with the IRS? Have you heard any of the stories from the Vets who are falling rapidly through the system because there are so many departments, rules, regulations, and no one knows what the other is doing? And you think somehow the Government is going to “protect” you?

Here are the reviews and the email confirmation they went through (these were from last night, however, they are showing the original date I posted the review. Also, when they reposted the reviews, the comments were gone (I’d gotten a few angry ones on my Philosophy 100 review)

5.0 out of 5 stars Life Shaping, February 1, 2015

By Laura Freed “Girl Medic” (Philadlephia, Pa)

Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

This review is from: The Cave and the Light: Plato Versus Aristotle, and the Struggle for the Soul of Western Civilization (Paperback)

I’ve had a slow awakening – questioning everything I’ve been told (not taught!) in school. Wow. Had I had this book many years ago, or been taught the basic principals of this book, I think success and happiness in life would have arrived much sooner.

I have this on audio (usually hate audio narration but the narration of The Cave And The Light has a fantastic lyrical yet bold voice) and plan of purchasing Kindle because I am constantly pausing to jot down notes.

This book starts with Socrates and works its way into present day – explaining where original questions/possible answers to lifes questions started (and with who).

The people that give this book one star or less have been spoon fed into the belief that men are born evil, the world is evil, and they are superior and that collective is the only way to go (ah, but someone must always rule even in a collective society and that is where the negative reviewers come in, as rulers who know better).

This book is easy to listen and coming in at over 700 pages – there are a few boring moments – but they are very rare which, in a book so full of content, is remarkable (for me, anyway!).

This book has shaped my life for the better. It is remarkable. I wish they would require this in school – perhaps starting in 7th grade?

Thank you Arthur Herman!

5.0 out of 5 stars When There Is Too Much Information To Know, It’s Important To Know Who To Trust, February 1, 2015

By Laura Freed “Girl Medic” (Philadlephia, Pa)

Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

This review is from: Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama’s Washington. (Hardcover)

This is my fourth attempt at trying to leave a review for this book. Amazon keeps deleting my reviews. Is Lois Lerner working for Amazon?

An excellent book that every American needs to read.

Details not only Benghazi but also Fast and Furious as well as vaccinations information I was unaware of. Attkinsson is actually bipartisan and has gone after both left and right.

A great read. One of the last few remaining seekers of truth, not afraid to put her reputation and her life on the line.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Start, January 12, 2015

By Laura Freed “Girl Medic” (Philadlephia, Pa)

Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

This review is from: How to Debate Leftists and Destroy Them: 11 Rules for Winning the Argument (Kindle Edition)

Selling for .99cents – this 20 page book is worth the buck if you are just journeying into the political ring. However, if you really want to understand the “rules” I greatly recommend reading: Rules for Radicals Defeated: A Practical Guide for Defeating Obama/Alinsky Tactics – which really dives into the heart of each rule and is well worth the 9.99 it’s selling for (at time of this review).

Don’t lose heart people, I was asleep and now I’m fully awake and if I can be ‘roused, there are many more just like me!

(This review was posted then deleted by Amazon – I had to repost under different account). Amazon is deleting positive Conservative Reviews – make sure you copy your reviews and check them occasionally).

1.0 out of 5 stars Biased, December 30, 2014

By Laura Freed “Girl Medic” (Philadlephia, Pa)

Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

This review is from: Philosophy 100 Essential Thinkers (Kindle Edition)

What I liked was that it was brief – only about 2 pages devoted to each philosopher. What I didn’t like was that the author is very devoted to the idea of socialism and writes glowingly about Kant, Hegel, et al. If this were to be the first philosophy book I’d ever read, I might believe the very pretty, yet unrealistic, picture Stokes paints of those philosophers. I don’t mind if an author is biased, as long as I know that going in.

Hey Amazon, You’ll Never Block My Conservative Voice!

My Amazon Vine Account - see it while you can before they delete this one too!!!

A long time ago, when Amazon first started self-publishing, I experimented with writing. I had a separate account for publishing – trying out different pen names (George Orwell pen name! Ayn Rand, pen name! And we all know Stephen King has tried his hand at several pen names!)

Anyway, I moved on in life for a few years and forgot about Amazon for awhile, moved into a new life, a new city, a new computer, a new everything – and opened a new account on Amazon, this time under my name – Laura Freed.

Then I receive an invitation from my old email address/Amazon account inviting me to the Amazon Vine.

I had no idea what it was.

I thought maybe it was spam and almost deleted it but did a little investigating and found out Amazon would send me stuff for free in exchange for a review.

Holy. Smokes. YES!! Please.

Over the years, I’ve gotten many awesome things – and I also discovered how terrifically mean the Vine reviewers are that hang around Amazon forums. The most viscous of all are the Liberals – they hang out on the boards all day and have this holier than thou attitude. So superior than everyone else. I never ventured in the forum – call me chicken, but with all the hate I get on Twitter – I didn’t think I needed to tempt the Vine High Priests.

I would occasionally review under my real name – but back in those days (pre-Breitbart) I was all about food, fashion, fun. And when I did finally wake up politically, I kept my Laura Freed Amazon free from politics because it was the one online place I felt…safe…because it was the one place I wasn’t challenging the truth.

And then, I bought a Kindle Fire for Christmas, started reading a bunch of political books and thought, you know, might as well start reviewing under my real name – and I didn’t rate every book five star, and was honest.

The only one star I left that was for a liberal book was Philosophy: 100 Essential Thinkers: The Ideas That Have Shaped Our World by Stokes, and that was because it was biased toward communism…and had I KNOWN that, I never would have purchased it.

So, in the course of roughly a month, I start reviewing political books under my real name – on February 1st, I reviewed Stonewalled, an Auburn knit hat, The Cave and The Light (book) and the Amazon Kindle Fire 6. The only reason I am sure of that is because Amazon sends you a copy of the review when it is posted (or rejected as I’ve come to discover). All of these were 5 star reviews.

On Friday, February 6th, I went to look at the reviews for The Cave and the Light, and noticed my review was not there. When I went to my profile for Laura Freed “Girl Medic” – all my reviews were gone. I thought there must be a glitch – as there sometimes is with Amazon. I tried to send the reviews through again and each one said it couldn’t be posted because they didn’t meet their guidelines. I tried posting the reviews under my Vine reviewer account and surprise! They all went through. But usually, when there is a glitch like that, many people will complain on the Amazon forum boards…and I found…nothing.

I created a new account – fake name, and tried reviewing random things, and they went through.

Oh my gosh, are you still with me??

Sorry to be soooooooooooooo drawnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn out, but I want this ON THE RECORD!

I posted a story about this happening so I could keep track and so, if it was a glitch, other people wouldn’t panic, and if not, then something was seriously stinking in Amazon.

On Monday, I received a letter from Customer Service saying their was fraudulent activity on my reviews. Seriously preposterous. All my reviews were for VERIFIED PURCHASES. I was using MY REAL NAME . I had under a 100 reviews that went back to 2006! I start reviewing political books and suddenly, I’m breaking guidelines?

I write back and ask for examples – show me ONE REVIEW that breaks the TOS. Silence. Nadda nothing. I also asked for a copy of all my reviews under Laura Freed. (save copies of your reviews people!!).

I’ve decided to make it public that I am a Vine Reviewer. If Amazon is throwing me out because I had published Girl Medic on Amazon (to which I had NO REVIEWS written under any household  Amazon accounts) why wouldn’t they have suspended my Vine account? What products, exactly, did they believe I was manipulating on my Amazon account under Laura Freed “Girl Medic” – there are authors/reviewers on Amazon that still exist (I wrote about them in my first post) – these authors are liberal…that’s the only difference.

I haven’t been kicked out of Vine…yet…but it’s only a matter of time. And I can’t wait to dish the dirt on Vine! It’s so ionic Amazon is blocking my personal account for ‘manipulation’ yet allowed my VINE account because Vine reviews are what lure vendors to sell on Amazon. Some Vine reviewers do tell the truth — and some simply give EVERYTHING five stars and/or do a lot of gaming the system for review ranking status.

This is the writing I do off the fly – when I’m stoked. It’s long and I apologize. But there is no doubt in my mind there is either someone like a Lois Lerner slowly quietly erasing Conservative reviews and they just happened to mess with the wrong reviewer, or it is a deliberate choice – Amazon, block my accounts, you’ll never block my voice. #TrueStory
