Anti-Obama Filmmaker
Dinesh D'Souza Resigns
Following Affair Accusation

Reuters, by Russell Goldman

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 10/18/2012 6:31:43 PM

Dinesh D'Souza, the evangelical scholar who made a name for himself attacking President Obama in books and a movie, has resigned as president of a New York Christian college following allegations of marital infidelity. D'Souza's departure comes just two days after the Christian magazine "World" reported that the married professor was seen sharing a hotel room and introducing another woman as his fiancee at a recent conference in South Carolina. "After careful consultation with the Board and with Dinesh, we have accepted his resignation to allow him to attend to his personal and family needs.

Comments:
Chicago mob hit no doubt. Too little too late to save 0bama though. Sorry Barry, thanks to D'Souza America now knows that you're nothing but a failed anti-American radical leftist with a third world mentality. Nice try though.

The movie was loaded with facts, all putting obama in a bad way.

I have no interest in Dinesh D'Souza's personal stuff. No relation.

FTA:

According to "World," D'Souza had only filed for divorce from his wife in California on Oct. 4, the same day a reporter called to confront him about being seen with the other woman, confirmed by D'Souza as Denise Odie Joseph.

If the D'Souza's were separated and preparing for divorce (one doesn't file the instant divorce is imminent), and he is planning to marry this woman, it is probably not smart for someone as vulnerable as he, but not as tawdry as the World people would have us believe.

He has done the country a great service as one who has exposed Barack Hussein Obama. I imagine obie's henchpersons have been tracking him for a long time.

This was supposed to be part of #7.

"I sought out advice about whether it is legal to be engaged prior to being divorced and I was informed that it is. Denise and I were trying to do the right thing. I had no idea that it is considered wrong in Christian circles to be engaged prior to being divorced, even though in a state of separation and in divorce proceedings," he wrote.

He also accused the writer and publisher of the article as executing a personal vendetta against him.

This story is coming out to turn people like us against D'Souza. It looks as though it's working, especially when some don't even read the whole story. D'Souza is judged guilty before he proves himself innocent.

The article really doesn't explain very much. Was he engaged while still married, but not having an affair? How does that work? I guess the real point is that he was targeted for daring to criticize our Dear Leader. If you are a conservative, you had better be pure as the driven snow. It's even in Rules for Radicals: hold the opposition to their own standards.

That is really too bad he had to go and do that.
The left will go after anyone against them with everything they got. If you are going to cheat and be immoral when you call yourself a Christian, this does not help the cause.
Hopefully the people who were going to see his movie already saw it.

And once again, it appears the 'right' will clean house - even on just 'the appearance of impropriety', while the left would blow-off something like this as unimportant and personal, having NO bearing on their public life.

Read the article, and follow the links. If this was a Chicago hit, they chose an awfully odd venue for it: World Magazine, a conservative Christian publication. (One of their top writers, Lynn Vincent, was Sarah Palin's collaborator on "Going Rogue".) Look for yourself: www.worldmag.com, and tell me if you think this a lefty operation.

Now, how did the Obama administration persuade one of the premier conservative Christian magazines to do a hit job on D'Souza?

I have no dog in this fight; I've not seen D'Souza's movie, but I've heard it's very good. So the question remains: Why did a conservative Christian magazine choose to do a hit job on an Obama critic?

Again: www.worldmag.com. Judge for yourself if it's a left-wing venue. Read the article dated October 16 where they "out" him.

Conservative Protestants tend to be heavily against divorce, which is always seen as sinful unless there is abandonment, continued adultery or abuse on the part of the offending party. Even then, they are opposed to remarriage (Catholics can get annulments and the Orthodox permit remarriage after confession and a period of repentance.) So D'Souza was caught in what his coreligionists always consider a major offense against the faith.

The MSM has done their best to hide the popularity of "2016" and to insulate their boy Barry from it. But you can bet that the news of this alleged "affair" will be spread all over front pages across the country for the next few weeks.

Yep, when tempted to play around, don't do it. There is no way to hide and it's not worth the damage to all parties. Just ask Silky Pony, "Socks" Elliott and that doofus from South Carolina.

Dinesh was caught in the fly trap of rigid evangelicals who, apparently, can't address Dinesh directly or discretely.

I appreciate Alex McFarland was deeply concerned, but why destroy another except for personal gain...the question answers itself.

World, and McFarland, are reaping attention on the back of outing Dinesh. Could've addressed it personally, but chose themselves over a fellow Christian, from all accounts.

Selfish evangelicals? Every flock has a few, mostly at the top. Shocked, I am shocked...

I have no problem with Dinesh. It is his life and his journey through it with fellow humans and the Lord is his business.

What I find amusing is the faux outrage of the lefties. Smirk they might be okay on but moral outrage? Not I am laughing and smirking.

Also more of interest is who and how the outing was made. An outraged moralist in his circle or an outraged obama supporter? No FBI files on this one, him being too young to have been addeed to the liberal database via Hillary?

The truth would be better served for the public if scandals were applied equally by the lamestream instead of like the Crowley/obama debate affair.

The President is no economic illiterate, despite what conservatives think. He understands basic macroeconomics just fine, thank you – but with a twist. Mainstream Democrats worship at the altar of the New Deal. It’s an article of faith that massive government spending pulled America out of the Great Depression. (With all respect to Paul Krugman, the truth is more complicated, but that’s not within the scope of this article.)The president’s view of spending, deficits and debt is not merely Keynesian theory run amok. Its origins and objectives are far more terrifying. Where the traditional Democratic playbook for economic downturns was provided

Jared Huffman, D-Calif., said he thought DeFazio´s amendment was "terrific" but wanted to take it a step further and name the planet after Reagan.

A majority of Americans believe that President Barack Obama’s signature health care law will be repealed. A new Rasmussen Reports poll found that 62 percent of likely voters believe that Republicans will repeal Obamacare, which recently marked its fourth anniversary. Only 23 percent of those polled believe that the health care law has been a success, compared to 46 percent who describe the law as a failure. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, offered a Republican alternative to Obama’s health care overhaul last week, saying states should play a greater role in containing health care costs while

Secretary of State John Kerry angrily defended the Obama administration’s record on international diplomacy from Senator Jim Risch, after the Idaho Republican claimed that America’s foreign policy “is spinning out of control.” Kerry came before a Senate committee Tuesday, explaining to interested lawmakers that Russia remained an aggressive force in eastern Ukraine and that increased sanctions against Vladimir Putin’s regime seems more likely. “I do not envy the position you’re in here today,” Risch began after Kerry had outlined significant challenges in eastern Europe and elsewhere. “After the discussion we’ve had here today, I think anybody who would come in here would

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd. But

Attorney General Eric Holder strayed from prepared remarks to slam the way he was “treated” by a House committee the day before, calling it evidence of “ugly and divisive” civil rights challenges facing him and President Barack Obama. Speaking to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network at its annual convention in New York on Wednesday, Holder talked about the state of civil rights today and brought up a House committee hearing Tuesday that grew contentious, according to video from Mediaite and reports from outlets including Capital New York. “The last five years have been defined by significant strides and

"She is not welcome here in San Diego by so many of us. We don´t want her here," said Jan Iverson, a local mother and protestor. (Snip) Clinton´s office says she changed plans because of

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) could face up to five years in federal prison for obstructing a Congressional proceeding. On Wednesday, Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and five Subcommittee Chairmen on the committee sent a letter to Ranking Member Cummings demanding an explanation for his staff’s queries from the IRS, why the Minority hid these efforts from the Majority, and why the Ranking Member denied such actions by his staff at a February Subcommittee hearing: “Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and
