Obama nemesis opens anti-Hillary movie on eve of Democrat convention

pic943.jpg Art Moore (WND) is reporting that as the Democratic Party prepares for its presidential-nominating convention, Dinesh D'Souza's "Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party" opens nationwide this weekend on 1,500 screens.

"They'll put out their narrative, and we'll put out our counter-narrative," D'Souza told WND in an interview at the Republican Convention.

The Democrats' narrative is that racism, particularly from the right and the Republican Party, keep blacks in poverty.

But D'Souza, in the movie and a companion book of the same name, takes viewers through the history of slavery and the Jim Crow era, arguing that it's the Democrats who need to own up to a racist past.

D'Souza said the reaction so far to the film "is tumultuous" after opening early in three theaters and screening in Cleveland July 17.

"Hillary's America" has the highest per screen average of just about any movie in the country, certainly of any documentary," he said. "But we're also beating a whole bunch of Hollywood big movies per screen."

D'Souza said the way for the film to reach a broader audience is "for a lot of Republicans and conservatives to go see this movie."

"Ironically the way to reach the middle guy is for the base to go out big time and see the movie, because if the movie is successful, it will expand out to more theaters, and that will put it in the reach. It will get people talking about it," he said.

'Urban plantation'

At the center of the narrative is the concept of "urban plantations," the inner city.

"It's the Democratic Party, that used to run the rural plantation, that is the party of slavery," D'Souza said.

"What they did was they figured out a way to recreate the plantation. In Oakland, in Detroit, in St. Louis, in Chicago, in Dallas, and so we have these very precarious neighborhoods, very difficult places to live. Imagine being a black kid growing up in Oakland," he said.

"The family structure is broken down. Ramshackle family dwelling. You get a meager provision of life, But there is no opportunity to get ahead," D'Souza said.

"And that's the way it was in the old slave plantation."

He noted the old slave plantation had social security, and if you got sick, they called the doctor for you.

"But, on the other hand, you never got ahead," he said.

"Boiling over"

D'Souza contends many of the recent police shootings "come out of the horrible atmosphere in which the urban plantation is boiling over."

"So, it's not simply a matter of who did it, and whether they are black Muslim or whether they are whether they read. It's also a matter of the underlying conditions that are producing this," he said.

"But I hold the Democratic Party responsible for this," he said.

Bill Goodykoontz of the USA Today Network, nevertheless, took aim at Republicans, calling the movie "even meaner than convention speakers."

D'Souza's previous feature films, "2016: Obama's America" produced in 2012 was the No. 2 highest-grossing political documentary of all time, followed by his second feature film in 2014, "America: Imagine the World Without Her," the No. 6 highest-grossing political documentary.

"Real America"

In academia and in media, which is largely dominated by the left, D'Souza said, racism is "everywhere to be talked about and rarely seen."

"The strange thing about this -- I find this to be particularly true with young people," he said. "They are fed an uninterrupted diet of propaganda about racism, even though none of them either experience it or practice it.

He pointed to polls that ask people what percentage of America is black. The correct figure is about 12 percent, but in surveys people say its 40 percent.

D'Souza said it's because blacks are so dominant in the media and entertainment world.

"So, there is a picture of America out there that's not the same as the real America," he said.

"And remember that that information or that kind of propaganda can become reality," he said. "People think that they're going to respond as if there is, even though I think actual racism has precipitously declined."

The film is running now. Use your search engine to find the film in your location.

Movie Review -- Dinesh D'Souza's "Hillary’s America" -- 5 stars out of 5

Dr. Karen Siegemund (Politichicks) says Monday night I attended the Hollywood red carpet premier of  Dinesh D'Souza's new film, "Hillary's America."

I was completely blown away.

In a speech before his film began, Dinesh described it as a horror film.  He is so not kidding.

I've seen all of D'Souza's other films and while they were terrific, none can match the brilliance of this one. In every way, the production, including graphics, were outstanding, and the soundtrack -- seriously, I would see it again for the music alone!  It was phenomenal. D'Souza's wife's singing of "God Bless America" was beyond spectacular, and the Gatlin Brothers wrote and performed a song just for this movie.

But the movie itself, from start to finish, and the story it told, is something everyone -- EVERYONE -- should see. Everyone. Those on the Right of course, but also I challenge anyone on the Left to tell me what he got wrong. Because, to me, what Dinesh did, as he always does, was TELL THE TRUTH, a truth that the left has so cunningly subverted and distorted.

And let me tell you this, Dinesh is one of the gutsiest people out there. The making of this film, considering the (literal) punishment he received for "Obama's America", took such extraordinary courage it's hard to fathom. And that it took such courage is a sign of how far we have fallen, that D'Souza spent a moment in jail when the criminal Hillary seems unindictable … it boggles the mind.

Other attendees of the premier were equally impressed.

PolitiChicks co-owner Morgan Brittany wrote on Facebook,

Everyone must see this film. There are so many things that I DID NOT know about the evils of the Democrat party. it is amazing how history is so manipulated when one party has an agenda and takes control of the media. Unbelievable. This film will arm you with everything that you need to know to counteract what the left says and honestly I don't know how they will be able to deny the cold hard facts that in it!

Singer/actress Chele Stanton said, "Everyone should see this film… So informative and eye opening in many ways…"

PolitiChicks CEO/Publisher Ann-Marie Murrell said, "This premier was attended by most of the major political wonks in Southern California and yet over and over, I heard people saying they learned something new about the history of the Democrat Party.  This is absolutely the must-see film of the year."

Dinesh D'Souza is a courageous and brilliant truth-teller and it's up to all of US to ensure that people see it.

The film will be released nationwide on July 22nd, right between the 2 conventions.

Dinesh did the hard work -- all we have to do is go see his movie, at least once or twice, and bring a friend. Buy someone a ticket -- or better yet, buy a group of tickets and bring as many millennials as you can find.  The numbers on opening weekend determine what happens next, so again, please go see it.

You will be blown away -- and even more convinced of the danger of this woman.

She MUST be stopped.

From the film's website:

Hillary's America, the latest film from the creators of America: Imagine The World Without Her and 2016: Obama's America takes audiences on a gripping journey into the secret history of the Democratic Party and the contentious rise of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

In Hillary's America, New York Times #1 best-selling author and celebrated filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza reveals the sordid truth about Hillary and the secret history of the Democratic Party. This eye-opening film sheds light on the Democrats' transition from pro-slavery to pro-enslavement; how Hillary Clinton's political mentor was, literally, a cold-blooded gangster; and how the Clintons and other Democrats see foreign policy not in terms of national interest, but in terms of personal profit.

Hillary's America will uncover how their plan is to simply steal America.

Dinesh D'Souza to release film about the Democrats and Hillary

This has been a quite eventful year for me.  I just got married a couple of weeks ago, by the way. Thank you. And my wife, Debbie, is here.  I had actually asked her -- she's a singer -- and I'd asked her if she'd sing before I spoke, but she said, "No, I've actually got a better offer.  I'm going to be singing tonight at dinner."  So she's obviously getting a bit too big for her boots, but she'll be performing tonight, and you'll have a chance to hear her and I hope meet her.

It's been eventful for me in other ways.  As some of you know, I completed eight months of overnight penance in a confinement center for my sins against the campaign finance laws.  Now, I don't want to go into all that, but I just want to say it's taught me a couple of things I want to begin with.  The first thing I realized is that it got me to think hard about the issue of justice because if we think about it, modern liberalism and particularly the Democratic Party, builds its whole argument on the basis of justice.  Very often we, as Republicans or as conservatives or as libertarians, we appeal to a rival principle.  And that principle is freedom.  And so we get into this political struggle, and we play the king, freedom, but then they play the ace, justice, and then they win the hand.  Why?  Because justice is actually the primary virtue of any society.  Freedom does not trump it.

In fact, in some sense, freedom is subordinate to justice.  Why?  Because freedom is a principle that has a good and a bad side.  In other words, we can always think of reasonable deprivations of freedom.  People are deprived of freedom all the time, not just kids but adults.  But there is no such thing as good injustice.  Injustice is always bad.  And also, injustice makes the blood boil in a way that deprivations of freedom don't.

So the reason I say this is because it seems to me that conceding the issue of justice to the Democrats, to the Left, is a very dangerous political strategy.  I, of course, got my own taste of this in the peculiar field of criminal justice.  And of course, did I exceed the campaign finance law?  Yes, I did.  But right at the same time my case was migrating through the courts, another guy, another Asian Indian guy named Chuck Wall -- we Asian Indians appear to specialize in the campaign finance violation area.  Well, in any event, this dude gave $180,000.00 in straw donations to Hillary Clinton and a whole slew of Democrats -- by the way, I gave $20,000.00 over the limit.  I got eight months of confinement in this center that's under the bureau of prisons of the Obama Administration.  Chuck Wall got nothing.  He got a fine and some community service.  No prison, no confinement.  So obviously, justice isn't just a matter of "you break the law," but was the penalty proportioned to the crime?  Did other guys who did the same thing get roughly the same penalty?  

In any event, I find myself in this remarkable confinement center, which, by the way, is not kind of a white collar prison.  It's, in some ways, worse because in white collar prison, it's basically mayors and dentists and doctors who defrauded Medicare, and I'm told they have an activities director.  But a confinement center is a transition point for all criminals to go back to society.  And so, if you did attempted murder and served 15 years or you were a drug smuggler or a coyote, you go to the confinement center before you go back to the street.  So I had the whole gamut of hoodlums for about eight months.  And initially, it was, I have to admit, a little bit of a terrifying experience because it was primarily Hispanic; it's on the Mexican border.  A lot of these guys are in groups and gangs, and the gang structure is kind of byzantine because even among the Mexicans, who are the majority, there are the U.S. Mexicans, who are called south-siders; there are the Mexicans from Mexico.  So I thought to myself, I can't talk to this guy; that guy's going to want to kill me.  So I kept to myself.  I considered, but rejected, the idea of starting my own gang, the Asian Indian gang.

But after a couple of months, I thought to myself, look, I can't do this.  I need a different approach because I'm a conservative in a place where conservatives rarely go.  I mean, I'm not going to walk down the confinement center and run into George Will or Charles Krauthammer.  It's kind of a unique spot.  I'm an anthropologist in a strange land.  So let me investigate, and so I began to talk to people.  And eight months later, I must say, I've learned a lot about what I'm going to call the ideology of the criminal underclass.  The ideology of the criminal underclass I previously was kind of unfamiliar with.  I mainly got my ideas on the subject from the Shawshank Redemption.  So I expected most of these guys to vehemently insist on their own innocence. But I discovered, in getting to know them, that most of these guys have a different view, a rather more nuanced and somewhat more interesting view.  And that view is that we did it.  We're guilty.  But we are the small fry.  We are actually the stupid criminals because that's why we're here; we got caught.  The big fry never get caught.  The big fry are at large and the system doesn't go after them because, as it turns out, they run the system.  

Now, this got me scratching my head because one thing I realized is that this ideology, if you call it -- by the way, by no means unique to the criminal class.  It's also the ideology of the philosopher Machiavelli.  Writing about the ancients, Machiavelli says that their mistake is that they focus on imagined powers and principalities, which have never in truth been known to exist.  In other words, what Machiavelli's saying is we focus on the world as it ought to be.  And this is also a political debate: things ought to be this way, they ought to be that way.  But Machiavelli's point is, let's look at the world as it actually is.  Let's look at the world in the face straight on.  And that's a perspective that I had not fully comprehended before, and here's what I mean by that.  

I have tended, as most conservatives, most of us who are in the conservative intellectual class, we look at American politics as a debate.  It's a debate between two sides, and these two sides have rival ideologies, and they stand for one thing, and we stand for another thing.  And we believe in freedom and they believe in social justice. And we believe in equality of rights and they believe in equality of outcomes and blah, blah, blah.  Now, the ideology of the criminals is that this whole way of looking at the world is nonsense.  People aren't motivated in reality by debates.  People are actually motivated by things like avarice and lust and hatred and revenge and fear, and that those are the real motives of human existence, and those are the real motives of politics. And so politics must be understood that way.  And so I began to think about Obama and about Hillary and about what's going on in American politics.  

And again, we're always trying to educate the other side.  We have all kinds of conferences.  This is all part of what can be called the ongoing Obama education project.  We're trying to show Obama the way the world really is.  "Hey, Obama, we want to remind you that Vladimir Putin used to be a KGB officer."  "Hey, Obama, if the Iranian mullahs say they want to build a bomb, they probably do."  "Hey, Obama, confiscatory tax rates are not good for economic growth."  Well, this elaborate educational project has now been going on for eight years with what can only be described as hopeless results.  Obama is an unbelievably slow learner.  Why?  Not because he's a dummy, no; because he's about something else.  Something else is going on. And I want to try to put my finger on what that is.  In a sense what I wanted to argue is that the progressives -- one reason we look at foreign policy -- they don't understand this, they don't understand that.  Well, why not?  Why don't they understand this?  Why wouldn't Hillary take the Benghazi phone calls?  Why did she set up a private server?  How do we explain the underlying rationale for why intelligent people would do these things?  

I want to argue or suggest -- and I argue the case more fully in my book -- that the progressives are about a very serious business, and that is the business of stealing America.  Stealing America.  Now what does that mean?  Does that mean take over the federal government, the $3 trillion of the U.S. economy?  No.  Does it mean taking over the entire economy?  $17 or $19 trillion of wealth?  No.  Think about what is the most valuable thing that the world has ever produced.  Is it the telegraph?  Is it the automobile?  Is it the airplane?  The computer?  No.  The most valuable thing -- I'm not talking about an idea.  I'm talking about an actual thing – that the world has ever produced is the United States of America.  The entire wealth of the whole country, all the land and all the stuff and all the money in all your bank accounts and all in your savings accounts and all the furniture in your home and your TV, add it all up.  It's about $75 trillion.  That is the biggest stash of dough ever accumulated in world history.  And naturally, thieves are extremely interested.  

Now, in my view, what's going on in America today is there is a vicious battle between two groups of people for control of that wealth.  By the way, the progressives aren't about -- they aren't socialists.  If you really think about it, they're way too lazy to be socialists because a socialist is about the government controlling the means of production.  It's about the government going and drilling for oil in Midland, Texas.  You think Bernie Sanders wants to drill for oil in Midland, Texas?  No!  He wants the people in Midland to drill the oil, and then put it into barrels and then label it, and then he wants to step in and control what happens to it.  So what's going on is that we have wealth created in America and we have a sly, clever, powerful group of people -- not all of them in politics, some of them in the media, some of them in academia -- and they want to get their hands on that wealth.  They want to control it.  They want your wealth.  They don't just want to raise your tax rate from 39 percent to 42.  They want to take your stuff.  All of it.  

Now, I want to pivot because I want to talk a little bit about our situation.  We often in conferences talk about what's the problem, but we don't focus on what actually can be done. What can I do? What can you do to frontally attack this problem?  And I want to say a little word about that.  We're obviously in an election year, and a great deal hinges on the election.  But I remember two years ago, a great deal hinged on the midterm election and lots of people would say to me, "Well, what do you think? The Republicans are going to take the Senate."  Well, the Republicans took the Senate, control both the House and the Senate, and not a whole lot changed.  Well, why not?  Well because Boehner's a wimp and McConnell's a wimp.  But why are they wimps?  Do they want Obama to succeed?  In my view, no.  They're wimps because they're terrified of the media.  They know that the media can destroy them.  And I don't just mean expose them.  I mean, comedians will ridicule them, and they will become laughing stocks, and then they won't even be invited by David Horowitz to speak at his conference. Our own side will bury them.  They know that.  Another way of saying it is, I'm saying that while we have -- and David is by no means guilty of this; he's been part of the solution here -- but most conservatives focus on the election in a huddle in one corner of the battlefield. And the left has taken over the powerful, I won't just say "institutions" of our culture.  They've taken over all the big megaphones.  So Hollywood is a huge megaphone.  Broadway is a pretty big megaphone. The left controls the whole structure of American comedy.  They've got Bill Maher, they've got Colbert, they've got Jon Stewart.  Who do we have?  Pretty much nobody, nobody and nobody.  We've seeded this ground.  They control the universities.  The more elite the university, the stronger is their hold on it.  So we've allowed this ground to slip away.  And so, long term, I don't think we can beat them if we let this go on.

As you know I've been a writer most of my career and a speaker, think-tank guy from AEI and Hoover.  I've pivoted in my career and now moved into trying to tackle these areas where the Left is so strong.  I want to say a word about movies.  We're making a film.  It's called "Hillary's America."  My plan is to release it in July about the week of the Democratic convention.  That way, they have their narrative and we have a counter-narrative.  And this film is not -- well, my earlier film four years ago was just about Obama, kind of the secret history about Obama.  This film is a secret history not just of Hillary, but of the Democratic Party.  And here, there is a huge argument that to my knowledge has never been publicly hashed out, which is, which is actually the party of emancipation and human rights and civil rights and equality of rights; which historically and now is the party that stands for these things?  Well, the Democratic Party says, "We are.  That's our MO.  That's what we do."  And what we show in this film is not just the Democratic Party was the party of slavery, but the Democratic Party was also the party of segregation and Jim Crow and the Ku Klux Klan and lynching.  It was also the party of Japanese internment and forced sterilization and sympathy for fascism in the 1930s.  This is their history.

To which the Democrats come back and say, "Oh, gee, yeah, well, yes, that's all kind of true.  But we switched.  We became enlightened, and all the racists who were in the south all became Republicans."  This is the theory of the "big switch" and this argument has never been frontally attacked by our side.  We've kind of conceded it's true and yet the whole argument hinges on about three examples, mostly focusing on one man, Strom Thurmond.  The truth of it is there are about 1,200 racist Democrats who were elected to the Senate, the House, governors, all kinds of top officers in the Democratic Party for most of the 20th century.  About eight of them became Republicans.  Most of the dixiecrats remained Democrats all their life.  

Now, it's one thing to say this.  It's something completely different to show it.  This is the great power of film because film is an emotional medium, and if you put things that are true on film, you can settle the argument emotionally in a way that you can't do just through intellectual argument because intellectual argument at the end of the day ends up as "you think this and I think that."  So we're releasing the film in July.  It exposes Hillary as part of a longstanding Democratic tradition of exploitation, subjugation and theft.  If you think about it, slavery was theft, theft of another guy's labor, making another guy work for you for free.  Lincoln called it "you work, I eat."  That's the essence of slavery.  Similarly today, when the Democrats have built their whole ideology on taking from one guy and giving it to another -- now this giving to another is very suspicious.  

I'll just say one word about Hillary here because the Democrats don't really give a whole lot.  Hillary has this big education proposal.  Free education, a $350 billion program.  Now let's think about that.  Who is Hilary giving free education to?  Young people.  Where is she going to get the money to do it?  The government is $19 trillion in debt, so you have to borrow.  But who is the national debt going to be handed off to?  Young people.  So what Hillary is really doing is she's not actually transferring money, she's reaching into the young guy's back pocket, lifting his wallet, taking money out of his own future earnings, giving some of it back to him now and acting like she's doing something wonderful for this person.  She's not even robbing Peter to pay Paul.  She's robbing Paul to pay Paul and counting on Paul to be too dumb to see that he is actually paying for his own education.  So who benefits from all this?  The one who benefits the most is Hillary because she granted all these people a free education without it costing her a penny from the hundreds of millions of dollars that she's personally accumulated or touching the $2 billion in the Clinton Foundation.  She doesn't have to spend a cent of it.  She gets to be a philanthropist on the public purse.  

Now, the movie, as I said, opens in July.  Some of you will know this already, but it is a secret of movies that the success of a film is dependent upon opening weekend.  Well, the movie will open pretty big, probably 1,500 theaters.  We'll have all kinds of momentum that we didn't have in 2012.  But if the movie does well in opening weekend, we'll go from 1,200 theaters to 2,000 theaters the next week.  If we do poorly, we'll go to 800 theaters the next week.  And so the point being that it's very important for us to make this movie work.  People say I want to get the movie to independent voters.  The way to do that is to actually help to put some fuel in our rocket opening weekend and trying to see it if you can or organize a bunch of friends to go see it opening weekend.  

So I was talking the other day at a women's Republican group in Texas, and the women there were saying, "Well, gee, Dinesh, we don't really know what we can do in this election because Texas is going to fall in the Republican camp.  This is red America.  What can we do?"  And what I said was, "Listen, the names and addresses of all the independent voters in the swing states in this country are known.  That number is not that large; let's say a million people in Florida and Colorado and North Carolina and Ohio, and our team actually has their names and addresses.  So you're in Texas, true, but there's nothing to stop you as a group from buying a bunch of DVDs.  If you find this messaging to be powerful, if you believe it's messaging that the Republican National Committee or the campaigns officially won't do or can't do, you can drop a DVD of this film at a kind of infinitesimal cost right in the mailbox of every independent voter who will decide this election.  That's something that you can do, not for millions or even tens of thousands of dollars.  Each DVD will probably cost you two or three bucks.  And so this is a way to make yourself a lethal force in American politics, essentially harnessing your own power and the power of all the people around you to actually drop a grenade into the other camp." 

Long-term, I think we have to do more, and what I mean by that is we have to think of ways to combat the left's monopoly in education, in media and in Hollywood.  Long-term we have to do that.  But short-term, we are all today much more powerful than we realize, and if we harness that power effectively, creatively, I think that we can discover that right in this room, there is bottled up, most unfortunately, an influence in our life, most of it's unused, but I think we should find a way this year when your country needs you to uncork the influence that you have and use it effectively for the betterment of your country.  Thank you very much.

Moderator: Thank you.  We have time for two questions.  

Audience Member: What weekend in July will it open?  And how will we know?  

Dinesh D'Souza: The movie will open -- well, the Republican convention is in Cleveland and it goes first for a week and the Democratic convention is next.  Our plan is to do our premier in Cleveland.  We'll do a premier in LA as well the week -- we're going to do a premier in Cleveland the week of the Republican convention and then open wide the week of the Democratic convention.  And how will you know?  You'll know because it will be out there in a big way.

Audience Member: Thanks for coming, Dinesh.  I'm a mom of two boys and very frustrated with what's going on in this country and trying to raise my boys knowing what they're being taught at school is not reality.  I like that you touched upon talking to us about what we can do because one of my frustrations is that I feel like I know all this information, but I don't know what to do with it to make a difference.  I'm excited about your movie.  I've told my friends about it.  How do we go about getting copies of it to disseminate it to people?

Dinesh D'Souza: So the peculiarity of movies is that they open by contract. You have to stay in the theater for three months.  So the movie will open in the middle of July.  It will be in the theater through the middle of September.  So there will be just a window of a month and a half or so when the movie pivots to DVD.  But again, it will, at that point be everywhere.  It'll be in Redbox. It'll be on Netflix.  It'll be everywhere, and there will be easy ways at that point to get DVDs and, obviously, if you want to do this in bulk, you should contact me and I'll give you an email and a place to stay in touch with us.  The other thing is if you wanted to buy out a theater opening weekend, hugely helpful to us.  Again, don't put up the money for the whole theater. Organize a bunch of your friends and go just make an evening of it.  Hugely helpful to us.  We'd like to work with you in doing that and I'll be trying to organize that on a national scale.  So those are two thoughts about ways to help.

Moderator: We'll take one last question in the back.  Okay.

Audience Member: What is the name of the movie going to be?  

Dinesh D'Souza: The movie is called "Hillary's America" and the subtitle is "The secret history of the Democratic Party."

Moderator: Dinesh, thank you so much.

Dinesh D'Souza: Thank you.  

Here's the trailer . . .

Libs outraged over proposed bill requiring students watch "patriotic" D'Souza film

B. Christopher Agee is reporting that a Republican state senator in Florida is facing backlash over a bill he recently presented that would mandate public school students watch filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza's most recent documentary.

Senate Bill 96 states that "America: Imagine the World Without Her" would be shown to eighth and eleventh grade students in the state's public schools unless a parent or guardian chooses to opt out of the screening.

If enacted, State Sen. Alan Hays' bill would take effect at the beginning of next July.

As Breitbart noted, media outlets across the state have published sharp criticism of the proposal, apparently based on D'Souza's conservative views.

The Orlando Weekly, for example, classified the film as "conservative agitprop" and D'Souza as an "anti-Obama, anti-progressive, anti-liberal" whose movie revolves only around "his political point of view."

The paper also lamented the filmmaker's "pro-Christian point of view."

The Orlando Sentinel summed up the bill thusly: "If you could cash in on crazy, Florida would be the richest state in America."

Though opponents are quick to classify the film as a project rooted in partisanship, D'Souza explained his true objective in an exclusive interview with Western Journalism earlier this year.

"The big question the movie explores," he said, "is what would the world look like if there was no America? What would the past look like … if George Washington had taken a bullet from a British sniper?"

For Hays and the many moviegoers who made "America" a huge success this summer, such a celebration of America's greatness offers an important lesson for this nation's next generation of citizens.

This is what the left-wing liberal progressives are afraid of:

D'Souza says Obama sees America as a serial killer or child molester

Megyn Kelly:  It sounds like you’re accusing him of being almost anti-American?

Dinesh D’Souza:  Well, look at it this way. It’s not that Obama hates America. It’s not that he’s trying to take America down.  It’s almost like this. If I was in a family and I believed that my dad was some kind of a serial killer or child molester, I would still love him. He would still be part of my family. But I would do everything I could to prevent him from doing these evil actions.

Dinesh D'Souza says Obama mobilizes resentment towards America to grow his power

Ginni Thomas says if the questionable legal charges levied against Dinesh D'Souza by Obama's Justice Department for exceeding campaign finance laws were to quiet his criticism of Barack Obama, it is not working. Yet, one gathers from D'Souza that he sees these charges as one more of the shameless ways Obama is using the instruments of the state to attack his critics.

With a new book, "America: Imagine a World without Her[image]" and a movie, "America," coming on July 2, D'Souza is a man with a message and he is on fire. His movie "2016" brought in 8 million viewers. His new movie, "America" is coming July 2 and he hopes to top "2016″ with this latest production.

In this 23 minute video interview, Dinesh D'Souza said, "In my opinion, President Obama believes in American exceptionalism. I believe America's exceptionally good and he believes America's exceptionally bad."

He went on to say, "He doesn't equate America's sins with the rest of the world. If he did, he would be pressing the Chinese to use less energy resources. He would be demanding that they stop buying all the land and minerals in Africa. He would be demanding that they reduce their nuclear arsenal."

To D'Souza, Rush Limbaugh was right in 2009 to hope Obama fails with his "destructive" worldview. Reminding viewers that progress is not always beneficial, D-Souza said, "If I am a termite, for me, progress means eating the building and making it fall down."

President Obama has turned success on its head and is scapegoating the successful in America. D'Souza's analogy in the interview is to a bandwagon -- where good-hearted, successful Americans are pulling those depending on government assistance.

Obama says to those riding inside the bandwagon, "You are the morally most wonderful people in America." And, instead of thanking those who pull the bandwagon, Obama calls them "the most greedy, most selfish, materialistic we've ever seen," as he requires they pull harder.

"Even the Democrats are starting to realize something very fishy is going on here," he says.

You can use this website to demand the movie comes to your city if it hasn't already been selected for showing.

Dinesh D'Souza's "America" takes on the haters

Dominic Patten says, having made the second-highest-grossing political documentary of all time, the team behind 2016: Obama's America is now, as promised, following up with America. Sending up some fireworks of his own to rival the ones 2016 generated, producer-writer and kind-of host Dinesh D'Souza says of his new documentary, "We answer the central moral challenge of America's critics, which is that America's greatness is based on theft, plunder and oppression."

Listen for other red-button phrases from interviewees describing the USA as "the new evil empire" and a "predatory colonial power" as well as referring to Mount Rushmore as "a symbol of oppression and genocide to our people." Director John Sullivan's film comes out two years after its predecessors -- hitting theaters on the Fourth of July.

Here's the new trailer. which was first unveiled last night on Fox News Channel's The Kelly File:

"2016: Obama's America" -- filmmakers making a follow-up film

Paul Bond is reporting that Gerald Molen, the Oscar-winning producer of "Schindler's List," "Jurassic Park" and other blockbusters, is re-teaming with conservative commentator Dinesh D'Souza for a movie simply called "America."

The filmmakers behind 2016 Obama's America (Rental $3.99) are working on a follow-up to what has become the second-biggest political documentary in the history of the domestic box office, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.

Conservative commentator Dinesh D'Souza, who starred in, co-wrote and co-directed 2016, will return as the writer and star of a film simply titled America to be directed by John Sullivan, who wrote and directed 2016 with D'Souza.
 
Gerald Molen, who won a best picture Oscar for producing Schindler's List with Steven Spielberg in 1993, will executive produce America, as he did for 2016.

2016 shocked some industry watchers in 2012 by coming seemingly from nowhere, opening on a single screen in Houston, Texas, and spreading to nearly 2,000 screens within two months, eventually earning $33.5 million on a production budget of $2.5 million. The only political documentary to outperform 2016 was Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11, which made $119.2 million on a production budget of $6 million in 2004.
 
While 2016 was based on D'Souza's book The Roots of Obama's Rage, the new film will not draw from previously known source material, and the filmmakers say America is not technically a sequel to 2016, though audiences may be inclined to view it as such.
 
In America, D'Souza intends to recreate some famous moments in American history and ask the question: What would the world be like if the U.S. had not existed? He likened America, in fact, to Frank Capra's 1946 film It's a Wonderful Life, in which George Bailey learns what his town would have been like had he never lived.
 
"President Obama looks at America as an oppressive force," D'Souza said, "while I and millions of others around the world have a different view -- that America has been a great blessing to its own people and to the world."

In 2016, D'Souza travels to Nairobi to interview President Barack Obama's half brother, George Obama, and the trek and resulting video proved a marketing bonanza for the film. For America, D'Souza, Molen and company have other tricks up their sleeves, though none they are ready to reveal.
 
"We intend to provide both serious answers and have some fun as we take Obama's dreams for America to their logical conclusions," D'Souza says.
 
D'Souza and his filmmaking partners plan to formally announce America on Saturday in Washington, DC, at the Conservative Political Action Conference, which began Thursday and included presentations from Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin, Donald Trump, Paul Ryan, Rand Paul, Ann Coulter and others.
 
D'Souza also plans on unveiling the trailer for America at CPAC, though THR has obtained an advance copy, which is embedded below.

If D'Souza had to take the fall in his personal life to expose Obama the traitor, then it was worth it.  God bless him.

I realize that your motives for advertising this movie are to make money.  However, the impact of this movie is greatly diminished if people don’t see it before the election.  I think you really need to go to DVD and Digital as soon as possible.  Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and Comcast On-Demand are all examples of venues that could still make you money but make it more widely available as well.  Just a suggestion.  The clock is ticking.

FBI investigating illegal YouTube upload of "2016: Obama's America"

Taylor Bigler is reporting that the producers of Dinesh D'Souza's documentary, "2016: Obama's America," have informed the FBI that someone illegally uploaded the film to YouTube in "what they suspect to be an organized effort to drive viewers away from the theatrical showing of the film."
 
Late Sunday night, someone uploaded the entire film to YouTube. In a statement released Monday, the producers said that the suspect opponents of the film put it on the Internet to diffuse box office sales.
 
"It has now been taken down and we have informed the FBI which is launching a vigorous investigation," said producer Doug Sain. "We urge all Americans to respect the copyright of this film and not place themselves in legal jeopardy by engaging in illegal activity in the form of viewing or downloading the movie online."
 
"Obama's America" hit another roadblock last week when false reports circulated that Fox News Channel was planning to air the documentary for free.
 
"The reports of the movie appearing on Fox before the election are completely untrue and we strongly suspect that they are the result of dirty tricks by our opponents who spread this rumor in order to confuse the general public and keep them from going to their local theaters," D'Souza said."We urge all Americans to ignore these efforts and go to their local theater and enjoy the movie on the big screen."
 
The film, which traces President Obama's past in an attempt understand his worldview, has exceeded all box office expectations by becoming the second-highest grossing political documentary of all time.
 
So far, it has earned over $30 million since opening in July, according to Deadline, meaning Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11″ is the only political documentary to surpass "2016″ in ticket sales.

I'm glad it's finally online, but do we know if it's a sanctioned copy?  Believe me, I understand that it's impact is greatly diminished if seen after the election.  I just have an issue with pirated stuff, no matter what the intent.  I have sent an email to the 2016 Movie site suggesting they go digital as soon as possible.  The clock is ticking.

I saw the movie last week.  It was very good.  The whole point of Obama being born in a hospital in Hawaii was a lie, but every other connection was on point.

CBS' Scott Paulsen on "2016" movie !!!

This kind of feedback (see column below) coming from anyone associated with CBS is absolutely astounding (maybe he no longer has a job).  I'm reading that this documentary is astounding the pundits in its attendance figures and I've read a couple reviews already that, likethe one below says, the audience sits mesmerized at the conclusion thinking about what they have just witnessed (along with the ovations).  We saw it yesterday in Austin at a 3:00 p.m. showing (every single seat sold out); the audience had the same reaction as I’ve read from other viewers: loud applause.

The Right Politics

Scott Paulson says this past week, “2016: The Movie” about President Barack Obama opened in the Chicago area, and I chose to get more of an education about Obama by seeing the movie. After the inundation of canned hype for the movie on conservative talk shows across the Chicago radio dial that sounded more like commercials than honest endorsements of the movie, I was skeptical of what I was going to see.

While some talk show hosts sounded like they were genuinely impressed with the documentary and honestly endorsing the film, there were those who were obviously reading a commercial script which was not coming across as sincere to the regular listener – at least not to this often-skeptical listener. Perhaps, in future promotions of the film, it would be wise to have pre-recorded commercials done by the professional commercial-makers rather than having the likes of Mark Levin and Sean Hannity doing script after script to promote the movie.  After all, the listeners aren’t stupid and resent any attempt at being conned. After many reads by the talk show hosts, the readings of the commercial script were no more enthusiastic than anotherLife-Lock commercial read – another commercial that ought to be professionally done.

Yet, I’m glad I saw the hyped-film because it was more informative than I had thought it would be and included less propaganda than I had predicted. If anything, it was nearly too informative as there was an enormous amount of information condensed into the nearly one-hour-and-a-half documentary. Fact after fact is put forth which shows that President Obama definitely has many skeletons in the closet that have not been released prior to the nation’s trust in him with the Oval Office.

To watch this movie and realize – or simply be reminded of – all that is unknown about President Obama is of concern. Much of the information has been ignored by the American media totally. When appropriately reminded as to what is still unknown about Obama to date, one has to ask: How can any logical-thinking person give a damn about Romney’s taxes while not asking any questions regarding our current president’s past?

The man influences the entire globe, but liberal Americans want to know how much Mitt Romney paid in taxes in the past rather than learn about the man who they have entrusted with the country. Unbelievable.

The movie undeniably links Obama to persons of suspicious-interest due to their past actions and statements, such as former radical activist and Chicago educator Bill Ayers. While the media and blinded-liberals cast such facts aside, the movie does not. No, this portion of the movie is not propaganda – it is the display of factual information about relationships between people that cannot be denied. Yet, the “left” does deny the facts that are right in front of them.

Quite disturbing is the talk of the United States economy in the film. The current national debt which has increased two-fold during Obama’s presidency and the horrendous economy is suggested to be part of the plan to strip the nation of democracy – reasonable cause to make citizens totally dependent on the government. The “left” is aghast at this suggestion of the current economy. They actually believe that Obama is unintelligent enough to let this economy just happen. Ironically, it’s many of the people on the “right” who know Obama’s not stupid, and much of what has happened to the United States in the past four years is part of Obama’s plan.

How could one so-highly educated and intelligent as Obama not know what he was doing when he incurred such debt? I left the movie thinking more strongly than I had in the past that the current debt and this economy was part of Obama’s plan all along. Increasingly making Americans dependent on the government is the plan. What’s more, he knew his blind followers would believe it was not the plan and, of course, was all Bush’s fault.

He must be laughing at his blind followers all the way to the “new America” they’re allowing him to create. My belief is that Obama continues to prey on his die-hard followers’ stupidity to accomplish his personal goals for America.

The most disturbing part of the film to me was the interview with President Obama’s half-brother George Obama from Nairobi, Kenya. How can Obama claim to want to help people when he has done absolutely nothing for his own family? It makes me wonder if he really cares about anybody if he can’t find it in his heart to help his own family. As the closing credits started to role upward across the screen, the audience applauded. Me, I just walked out – reasonably upset.

Those who have already decided to vote for Obama will probably not  even see the movie. It’s sad ut they probably don’t want to know the truth when it is laid out so clearly for them in this documentary. The independents who are still deciding who they are going to vote for ought to see this film. I’m quite confident that any undecided voter who sees this film will know who to vote for after viewing this documentary. If you know you’re not going to support the “left” in this coming election, see the film out of interest if you like. But, fair warning, it’s disturbing – and quite frightening – to say the least.

Local Patriots pestered Cinemax and even the Victoria (liberal) newspaper until Cinemax decided to show it in Victoria, Texas.

These theater chains may be Liberals, but they are Capitalists. If the local managers refuse to show this, or other conservative films, go to regional or national management.

At the first matinee showing (2:20pm)of 2016, the theater was about half full. That one of 12, when it let out it looked like 25-30% of the cars left the parking lot, and quite a few were coming in. I expect local management will notice.
