The wholesale giant Costco has issued an order to remove all copies of Dinesh D’Souza’s bestselling book, “America: Imagine the World Without Her,” from the shelves of its stores nationwide, according to

The book, in this midterm election year, is a strong rebuttal of the progressive ideology behind President Obama’s policies, which have been supported by Costco co-founder and director Jim Sinegal, a major Democrat donor and a speaker at the 2012 Democratic National Convention that nominated the president. A Washington Post political reporter has noted Obama’s “romance” with the nation’s second-largest retailer.

Obama promised “change” and is delivering it—if we can judge from government forcing a photographer and a baker to do gay weddings against their religious conviction. And now a best-selling book with a serious message is ripped from the shelves because of political motivation.

At, D’Souza’s book, released June 2, is ranked No. 5 overall and No. 1 in Political Commentary and Opinion. Amazon readers have given “America” an average rating of 4.6 out of 5.

The Washington Examiner reported June 20 that the book sold 4,915 in the first week and 5,592 in the second week but mysteriously was kept off the New York Times bestseller list, where it would have ranked No. 8 and then No. 11 on the June 29 list.

It seems like the Golden Rule has changed to “He who has the gold rules.” I won’t be going back to Costco.
