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.
Does MSNBC know that one of its hosts is receiving large amounts of money form an interest group whose political activities he covers? Does the network have any journalistic ethics guidelines at all? Elisha Krauss of truthrevolt.org presents the results of a search of Department of Labor archives showing the amounts of money Schultz has received from politically active organizations he covers: Schultz received at least $177,000 from labor unions in 2012; the average median income for an American family is around $44,000 a year. This year alone the DOL shows Schultz has been paid $75,000 by the AFL-CIO; just yesterday AFL-CIO Richard
How much in actual health care could have been paid for with the taxpayer amounts currently being spent on developing websites for people to sign up for health insurance plans they aren´t happy with?. Consider Oregon. According to the most recent numbers from the Kaiser Foundation the average cost of one day of in patient hospital care in Oregon was $2,967. Oregon has 36 hospitals with a total of 5916 beds, $300 million in state and federal funds used for Oregon to build its website. would pay for 101,112 days of hospitalization - enough to fill every hospital bed in Oregon
The liberal media starts to take the measure of a media figure they must be afraid of. Make that very, very afraid. Dan Zak of the Washington Post has a long and interesting article on Megyn Kelly, whose new show on Fox News Channel has become a major hit (snip)My gut instinct tells me that a media career, however successful, will not be the end point of Megyn Kelly´s professional achievement. In fact, I faintly recall that once upon a time there was a media figure with incredible charisma, intensity, and likability who decided that the nation needed conservative politics
The introduction of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), as revealed by the roll-out of HealthCare.gov, is an epic public embarrassment, living up to predictions of a train wreck. We´re watching government at its most harmful and ineffectual. This is not rocket science -- no risky new technology is required; no laws of physics have to be invented or repealed. While the technology itself may present some challenges, problems like this more often than not stem from poor leadership, discipline, and accountability. We were privileged to spend our careers on a team responsible for the Aegis Combat System, a complex, mission
ObamaCare has as its modus operandi a focus on medical management by already beleaguered primary care physicians and para-health professionals, at the expense of medical and surgical specialists. The law´s administrators hope to control costs by cutting already bare-bones specialty physician payments, limiting medical technology and access to imaging, and instituting de facto health care rationing. Medicine has been increasingly high-tech and more specialist-oriented, resulting in better, albeit more expensive, care. To cut expenses, ObamaCare is naïvely turning to an outmoded model of health care delivery -- one that has been shown to have comparatively poor patient outcomes.
One of the most startling revelations of late was that Congress has not seen the videos made by the Predator/Reaper remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) that were flying during that event we now call Benghazigate. This detail is one of many arising from the recent classified hearings held by the House Intelligence Committee in which five eye-witnesses to the event gave testimony for the first time (snip) The key point of the revelation is that not just that audio and video tapes of those events exist; that audio and video record was available to multiple command centers, commanders, and decision makers in
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there. Photos of the day Uruguay legalizes marijuana, Kiev police pull back from protesters, aging U.S. prison population and more. Tuesday´s Photos of the day Would you write this way about a man? About O’Reilly himself? At least that’s what Megyn Kelly might ask at
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
Views of the tea party are at all-time lows in a new poll, as primary challenges to establishment Republicans continue to heat up Washington. Just 30 percent of Americans view the tea party favorably in a new Gallup poll released Wednesday, the movement’s lowest point since Gallup began polling about it during its rise in 2010. Also in a first, a majority of Americans had an unfavorable view of the tea party, at 51 percent. Similar numbers of respondents described themselves as proponents or opponents of the tea party: Twenty-two percent identified themselves as tea party supporters, while 24 percent said they
