In 2016: Obama's America, the most successful and artful conservative documentary to date, author and producer Dinesh D'Souza takes a step closer to exposing the real Barack Obama. To get there, however, he will have to remove the obstacles he has set in his own way. "Obama came out of nowhere," says D'Souza at the film's beginning. "No one really knew him." The reason why no one knew him was simple enough. Obama discouraged the media from looking. The major media obliged, and their conservative counterparts in New York and Washington, fearing ridicule
It makes no sense to claim that the act of taking a Russian class presumes leftist roots. At the time, the Soviet Union was the strongest country in the world after the U.S. China was closed; Arabia was a place for camel-herders. If you wanted to study a non-European language that was having world influence, Russian was your choice. (The choices I recall were French, German, Spanish, Russian and Latin.)
I took Russian...and I've always been a conservative. I don't recall any leftists in my college Russian class. It was a different time.
Clearly Stanley Dunham was a leftist...but taking a Russian class in that era didn't signify leftist.
Mr Cashill has no academic bindings to constrain his thinking. Mr D'Souza lives in the academic world and thus is unaware of its limitations much like a fish is unaware of water. The service provided by Mr D'Souza is far greater because of the medium. We will never know the whole truth.
An interesting article, and it brings up many questions, such as why D'Souza (and others in conservative media) won't touch the birth cert, SS, or liberal connections issues. Makes me wonder if they've gotten the message from someone that these rabbit trails are off limits, with serious consequences for any who follow them.
What I am convinced of is that there is much more here than meets the eye.
I tried to post this at American Thinker, but their site is not responding:
World Net Daily had a photo of Stanley Dunham standing with Obama Sr. as he departed for Harvard; Dunham is smiling broadly. If your "son-in-law" was leaving your daughter and newborn grandson to pursue his education half-way across the world, would you be smiling about it?
To me this photo, if accurate, tells volumes. It suggests that the Dunhams were very pleased to have a named father for their grandson. Did none of them know that Obama Sr. had a wife in Kenya and couldn't legally marry Stanley Ann?
Obama looks like his Grandfather Dunham, same long face, just as Stanley Ann had. I don't see any particular resemblance to Davis, but he doesn't look a bit like Obama Sr. either.
Personally, I respect Cashill's research on Obama more seriously than any other writer. He is more thorough and has greater curiosity than the other sleuths on Obama's nebulous trail.
His painstaking comparison of (supposed) Obama prose to Ayer's style of writing is awesome, and the absence of any other serious writing by Obama makes an airtight case against Obama being a literary genius.
I eagerly await his comments on the video "Dreams From My Real Father", which I'm sure is forthcoming after he has had time to sift it through his extremely fine filter.
Even though the clip contains some well reasoned and time tested supposition, I think it comes closer to the truth than any other scenario to date.
The only relevant factors are that his mother was anti-American, his father was anti-colonial or worse, and he was raised by socialists and communists. He never learned anything about the American dream and values either from them or his chosen classmates and friends. The MSM allowed us to be blinded to the least patriotic candidate ever to run for president, despite warnings from Conservatives of the press, internet, and radio. Treason or mistaken story line, they have failed us.
Cashill is right...I read a LONG time ago that O's mamma left for Seattle when baby O was only weeks old, and she went without her baby daddy. Souza should have spent more time on Mom's autobiogragphy, especially the Mercer Island years and high school. She was an avowed Communist groupie as a teen!
I think that D'Souza perhaps grafts a little bit of the anti-colonial sentiment he knew in India onto Obama. But that does not change the fact that, whatever his motivation, Obama does not love America and wants to fundamentally change it.
D'Souza accepted the words of Obama, or words credited to Obama, naive or playing the game. As noted in "Must Reads", it's a mass guilt trip, calculated to make Obama's statism not just palatable, just and fair.
It's beyond troubling that D'Souza chooses to pass over so many problems in Obama's history. Gilbert's "Dreams of My Real Father" is the alternative and, together, these films are not mutually exclusive but rather complementary.
I hope I live long enough to see are horrible president undeniably exposed and disgraced. Too few of us already know this disgrace is exposed.
Agree with Poster #7. Cahill is not jealous of D'Souza, just knows more of the truth. I appreciated D'Souza's movie, but knew it was incomplete and pertaining to his dad, misleading. However, it was still revealing and factual on many other things. We need Cahill, he is relentless and a good researcher, someday many will look back and say, 'ole Jack told the truth. What is missing in both authors' books is the proven fact that Obama is gay. Now that would change the election, but it is the third rail and nobody, not even Rush, will reveal it, but many, many people know.
The skinny on this fact has been in Globe Magazine as recently as last week and in 2004 when Obama lived in Chicago and on blogs including hillbuzz.org and WayneMadsenreport.com and watch Drudge, he hints about Obama's "golfing" friends, those single, young guys that abound. And don't forget, Reggie Love.
There is no "real" Obama. The Mulatto Kid has hidden all the relevant facts about his life and education and it may never be known to historians or biographers.
The voters didn't want to be called racist so they voted for the Mulatto without ever knowing that he wants to redistribute wealth, kowtow to the Muslims and talk his way into a cushy post-Presidential job somewhere that gives him lots of free time for his cadre of "boys" and golf games.
Man, there is a striking resemblence between 0bama and Frank Marshall Davis.
Frank Marshall Davis could very well be the real biological father. That would explain why the birth certificate has been so closely guarded like a nation top secret document. 0bama doesn't want anyone to know.
My bet is the birth certificate shows a different father than Obama Sr. or a father unnamed.
I think that D'Souza made a conscious decision to take Obama at his word and to make his case based on what Obama has claimed to be the truth. D'souza makes a devastating case against Obama even assuming that Obama's book contained facts. It is very difficult to refute his case by saying he is working with a different set of facts and then spending all his time documenting sources, etc.
I personally think that Cashill has made a very good case that we can accept little of Obama's book as the truth. The "Dreams of my real father" video makes a lot of sense and did not have to make any far-fetched speculations. I never thought the present president looked anything like Obama the Kenyan.
Please consider this additional father, Malcolm X. He looks so like the Obama creature, and go to youtube and search Obama and Malcolm X and you'll see for yourself.
While his Mother was a known commie skank, and hung out with them, she also had every reason to he had by Malcolm X, but in secret. They had a similar agenda, but he had to keep his while women hidden from the black muslim leaders, who eventually killed him.
That being said, Obama as the love child of Malcolm X gathered powerful sponsors, and they paved the way for the unaccomplished child to get into expensive schools and meet elitists wierdos like George Soros, and others. Soros fits the profile of the white older men that gay, closeted Obama preferred in his "partners" at his gay bathhouse in Chicago. He is definitely a "plant", and he is doing a terrific job of sabotaging the country, and breaking it down, for eventual surrender to the one world elitist cabal. That he has been successful, and that the "progressives" believe the fall of America is necessary and desirable, we can see the evidence of a changed allegiance in the elitist wannabees in the media.
Some of Obama's narcissism must come from the knowledge that he has the pedigree of Malcolm X, and as such, very powerful Muslim connections. With the loss of Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, and the treatment of Israel, and our traditional allies in the Obama toilet, their investment in him is paying off in unimaginable ways.
Cover for the pregnancy by pipe sucking Obama Sr. might be just as appropriate to hide Malcolm X or his Mother's pederasty promoting friends, like Frank Davis.
I think Stanley Kurtz's book "Radical in Chief" provides excellent insight into Obama and his policies. Combined with D'Souza's, it's very strong evidence that Obama does not respect the U.S. Constitution, the capitalist system, or "the American way."
Cashill has done some great research in the past. Check out the archives of his work, and find much about Obama and his nebulous past, especially "Dreams from My Father."
I agree with Cashill, and some posters here, that Obama has been given a pass on way too much of his background. There are questions about Obama's birth certificate, his social security number, the name Harrison J. Bounel (listed at Obama's home address), his draft registration, his college records, his citizenship and passport records, and even the ownership of his home, which is registered in Chicago/Cook County records to two people named Stuart and Wineberg (yet Obama takes the real estate tax deduction).
I fear we will never know exactly who Obama is until it is way too late.
even glenn beck won't say that pres. obama wasn't born in the u.s. i think the theory that his father is not sr., but someone else is the real reason the b.c. is unavailable. too bad no one was more interested in him 7 years ago when, perhaps, all his info was unguarded. but, never mind, dancing with the stars is on or is it american idol. watching that is way more important than paying attention to who is running our country.
The poor, pathetic Democrats trying to defend Obamacare have adopted the talking point that there is "pent-up demand" for "affordable" (i.e., subsidized by other people) health care insurance. The citrizens of the Garden State have just flipped the bird on this argument. (snip) fifty thousand people signed up online for New Jersey´s gambling sites in the first week. That compares with 741 who signed up for Obamacare during all of October. Yes, the Obamacare website has been plagued with problems, but the disparity between the two programs is still eye-popping
Barry promised a zillion times on camera that Americans under ObamaCare would be able to keep their health care insurance if they liked it, that they would be able to keep the same doctors, and so on. Were these lies? (snip)Next November, Republican political ads from coast to coast should say something like this: "The leaders of the Democratic Party are doing the very best they can. That is the problem our nation faces today: that Democrat leaders are doing the best that they can. We cannot expect them to fix the problems they have created or the other problems
Oops! First it was ´if you like your insurance you can keep your insurance.´ Then it was ´if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.´ Now, after the president´s spokes-prevaricators said that Barack Obama had never met his father´s half-brother Omar Onyango Obama, affectionately referred to by many as Uncle Omar, we come to find out that that´s another lie. Yet in a way it´s understandable that Barack Obama would want to place distance between himself and his colorful Kenyan family, some of whom have lived America illegally for 50 years, still mooch off of welfare, and in Omar
An entry titled "Forget About the Price Tag" has won the HHS video contest for promoting Obamacare. (snip)McDonald received the $2,000 grand prize and a $3,000 prize for having the top song. McDonald, a resident of Chicago, signed up for Cook County´s Medicaid program. She has type 1 diabetes. Did someone tell the state of IL that the $5,000 she won in the contest might make her inelgible for Medicaid? The huge irony is that she won by posting a video urging her fellow youth not to worry about the price tag, when she herself is getting her insurance paid for by
In his first term, Obama managed to get his paws on health care, banking, energy, student loans, the auto business, and more. Now he has his sights set on your 401(k). The left has had its eye on retirement savings for years, but so far takeover attempts have been rebuffed. (snip)Once it is established that mutual funds pose a risk to financial stability, government will likely proceed on its merry way, with thousands of pages of regulations bringing those funds, and the savings they manage, under the thumb of government. It is only a short step from regulation to appropriation,
In Michael Agar´s book entitled Language Shock: Understanding the Culture of Conversation, he asks "[h]ow do you speak and act a lie at the same time?" Agar maintains that there are three characteristics of an act that tell ... whether a lie occurred or not: I. The sentence is false; 2. The person knows it´s false; 3. The person intends to deceive. A lie isn´t just what´s in the discourse; it´s also what´s in the circumstances of the act of speaking, like the knowledge and intentions of the speaker. Furthermore, "the thing that most people would say makes a lie
Organizing for Action (OFA), which lives at the web address barackobama.com because it is an outgrowth of the Obama presidential campaigns, is shamelessly seeking to exploit the deaths of school children at the hands of a maniac in Newtown, CT. I am beyond words. How low can you go?
Global warming hysterics at the BBC warned us in 2007 that by summer 2013, the Arctic would be ice-free. As with so many other doomsday predictions by warmists, the results turn out to be quite the opposite. The UK Daily Mail reports: A chilly Arctic summer has left 533,000 more square miles of ocean covered with ice than at the same time last year - an increase of 29 per cent. (snip) The Northwest Passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific has remained blocked by pack-ice all year. More than 20 yachts that had planned to sail it have been left
Barack Obama is a man with only one core conviction. He has, as the basic foundation of his otherwise disorganized and uncertain belief system, the irrefutable tenet that the United States, because of its European roots, has been the epitome of oppression and arrogance throughout its history. Therefore, he is able to rationalize the need to say or do anything as the transformation of American society and the end of the pre-eminent status of the United States are his sole objectives. He has, thus, adopted a pre-meditated schizophrenic personality wherein he comports himself as an apologist and appeaser on the
Liberal media bon pensants are in a huff over remarks delivered by London´s Mayor Boris Johnson suggesting that IQ and effort have something to do with income. (snip) Britain´s Guardian, which regards itself as the leading organ of the left wing intelligentsia, busied itself ginning up an editorial pretending that Johnson is probably a racist: [Johnson used] a bizarre metaphor - "The harder you shake the pack, the easier it will be for some cornflakes to get to the top" - which was likely designed to confuse with colour, and make sure that this ambitious politician didn´t say too much.
The University of Colorado at Boulder is known for being one of the most politically correct campuses in the United States, particularly when it comes to Native American cultures. (snip) I think it is absolutely fine to name the dorms after the chiefs. My problem is with the pretensions of fighting "cultural chauvinism" and "primitivization." The plain fact is that the Araphao or Hinono´ei Language was a preliterate language, unlike French. Any rendering of the language into Roman letters should qualify as "cultural chauvinism." There is no way at all to put into a foreign system of writing a preliterate
In June 2013, Judge Beryl Howell of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia dismissed the Pacific Legal Foundation (PLF)´s case that ObamaCare violates the Constitution´s Origination Clause. This clause reads, "All bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with amendments as on other Bills." (snip)Judge Howell was likely wrong to have dismissed PLF´s lawsuit against ObamaCare for, among other reasons, not violating the Origination Clause´s second half.
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter. Chief among the issues
America is facing a wave of strikes by its fast-food workers on Thursday a day after Barack Obama warned that inequality in the USA had soared to the point that it now posed "a fundamental threat to the American dream". Low-paid workers in McDonalds, Kentucky Fried Chicken and other fast-food outlets in 100 cities across America were due to start rolling strikes to protest at the low level of America´s $7.25 (£4.45) federal minimum wage. The strikes are the latest part of a mushrooming publicity campaign for higher wages among those working so-called "McJobs", with fast-food restaurants seen as a
The world premiere of the “Ballad for Trayvon Martin for Orchestra and Jazz Quartet” is set for tonight. Princeton University’s director of its jazz-studies program composed the work in honor of the Florida teen. Anthony D. J. Branker told the Star-Ledger that the piece is intended to “be a form of healing” after Martin’s death and the controversial court case that followed it. The ballad, which will be performed by the university’s official orchestra and jazz ensemble, is intended to be a tribute to victims of racial violence, Branker explained. He hopes that the performance will be “one that speaks to
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
The president put in his ask to Disney CEO Bob Iger at a private meeting with entertainment moguls during his Nov. 26 visit to Jeffrey Katzenberg´s DreamWorks Animation. [snip] If you have any doubt as to how much of a sports junkie Barack Obama is, check in with the entertainment moguls who attended a private briefing with the president Nov. 26 before his speech at Jeffrey Katzenberg´s DreamWorks Animation campus in Glendale. At the end of the conversation -- which touched on a myriad of topics, from piracy to Iran -- Obama revealed what´s at the top of his bucket
A new report from the Texas-based Quorum Report, published by longtime Texas journalist Harvey Kronberg, says that House Speaker John Boehner plans to push amnesty legislation through the House, after the primary filing deadline for candidates. The move would prevent Tea Party from challenging GOP lawmakers who support amnesty in 2014. Scott Braddock reported on Tuesday that “in recent weeks, various Texas business interests have told Quorum Report that Boehner has been telling them that he will start holding immigration votes not long after the filing deadline has passed.”
Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) on Tuesday reintroduced legislation that would require the government to study the most practical ways of taxing drivers based on how far they drive, in order to help fund federal highway programs. Blumenauer´s bill, H.R. 3638, would set up a Road Usage Fee Pilot Program, which he said would study mileage-based fee systems. He cast his bill as a long-term solution for funding highway programs, and proposed it along with a shorter-term plan to nearly double the gas tax, from 18.4 cents to 33.4 cents per gallon. "As we extend the gas tax, we must also think about
