Chip’s Crazy Q Conspiracy Thread

Is it even possible to get a return on your investment if you pay someone 65 mil for a single book? I found this. Earn out means the company got back the investment and the author will now earn royalties.

For the Obamas to earn out their $65 million advance, they will most likely need to sell at least several million copies all together. And in an industry where selling 100,000 copies of a title is enough to make it a respectable bestseller, that’s not chump change. For comparison’s sake, the third-best-selling book of 2014 sold 573,000 copies.

So not even remotely possible for penguin to get their investment back. Then you ask why so would they do that?

I wonder where the money trail goes.
 
I assume that most of the books are sold back to the PACs as a backdoor way of funnelling money to the elected officials. Seems shady as hell but I don't think the publisher is risking very much.

I like the idea of any elected official going through background checks and audits


To maintain a TS clearance you aren’t audited, but if anything remotely sketchy happens they are all over your ass with interviews and shit, so people in the government should absolutely be vetted

I know it was Q but an excellent point was made. Every two years an audit of every rep and their families should happen. We all know the shit they do is not for us or every one of them would not be rich. AOC will be wealthy before she leaves and certainly with the way politicians work it, after as well.

Agreed. Unfortunately the only votes for changes like audits or terms limits would get is from Freedom Caucus members. Not even establishment Rs would support such scrutiny.

That is what happens when you let people police themselves. They talk about accountability and yet for them there is none. Term limits, audits all of that should be a must. That will get as far as pork in bills has gotten

Oh pretty please make this so. We are back to awan and Debbie. I did not expect the Italy drop but have read many articles that this regime sides with trump. Obama and the last guy were tight which is why he just visited him a month or so ago. Thick as thieves.

I want there to be a copy of the dnc server, hrc server, Carlos danger lap top copy and the reveal of where wiki got the dnc/pedestal emails. That is all for now.
