D'Souza Can't Quite Accept
the Real Obama

American Thinker, by Jack Cashill

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 10/2/2012 9:04:10 AM

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

We are to teach our children to resist peer pressure yet the example shown by the so called grownups is pitifully weak and willing to succumb to peer pressure.

Shame shame.

If Frank Marshall Davis is his real biological father - Zippy obviously must know this. Then D'Souza's thesis still holds but from a slightly different premise.

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.

Dems I know--including my Jewish Doctor and black neighbor--ignore the details of Obama's life we all knew or suspected long before the election, and which were confirmed in 2016 and elsewhere.

They don't seem to care that this Marxist/Muslim Traitor is set to destroy America, if allowed to do so.

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.

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

President Obama pulled a surprise move Monday at the White House’s Easter Prayer Breakfast when he selected Gene Robinson to lead the closing prayer.

He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.

As I sit writing from Berlin, Germany—I woke up this morning with the news that a demented American Nazi and KKK leader, Glenn Miller, has been arrested as the main suspect in the Kansas City murder of 3 American Jews. (Snip) Fortunately, a quick look at some of the anti-Semitic extremist websites has led to the following post by Mr. Miller, reproduced verbatim below: Israel Forming Super PAC to Attack Paul & Obama This is some big dookee, yaw’ll. http://runronpaul.com/interviews/isr…on-paul-obama/ Jew journalist Max Blumenthal exposes and explains this attempt by a foreign government Israel, to buy the presidential election for the neo-con, war-mongering republican
