Did Mockery of Obama Get
Dinesh D´Souza Arrested?

American Thinker, by M. Catharine Evans

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 1/27/2014 8:37:06 AM

Has Marxist/Leninist pal of Bill Ayers Mike Klonsky just given us the reason for the arrest of conservative writer Dinesh D´Souza? Does he have inside information? On January 24, Klonsky dashed off a quick "note" to D´Souza on his Small Talk Blog: Note to Dinesh D´Souza -- You probably shouldn´t have Tweeted that racist remark about Obama and Trayvon Martin. S**t like that sometimes comes back to haunt you. (snip) Klonsky was awarded $175,000 by the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, chaired by Barack Obama. In 2001 he stated that he and Ayers were still gung-ho in their zeal to destroy capitalism, but they had

Two can play that game. The Koch brothers need to come to the defense of D´Souza. Watch the sycophants in the media go mad...

I knew exactly what it was the second I read the initial headline.
D´souza´s had Barry number from day one and nothing gets under his thin skin than having other people point out the truth.

As the author points out - this tweet was just a further amplification of what the O said in the first place. Did O not mean when he was that age, he was acting out as well?

Did the indictment stem from payback. With this admin - anything is possible. Prepare for the worst - we have not seen anything yet.

No accountability, no respect for law - wow!!

Well the correlation certainly seems plausible. Tax cheat Geithner informed S&P there would be a government response and so goes the Fed lawsuit against them for holding up a mirror to Obama under cloak of fraud accusations. Now the Klonsky/Ayers/Obama dots are connected, explaining why CPUSA declared, "we won", after Obama was reelected. Well, no one can say the domestic communists don´t give fair warning of pending attacks. Cue The Godfather.

We should be outraged that this administration is using the power of gov´t agencies to harrass and punish its opponents. We are being spied on, searched (when traveling) listened to and punished by IRS if we don´t toe the commie line..and STILL we sit and do nothing.

Truth is always the first to suffer and ultimately, the one to outlast the lies.
Unfortunately, it is covered in layers of lies until someone uncovers it for all to see.
Probably should be a must read for a week.

The Communist enabling media - including Hollywood - could wake the USA up but they´re too busy drooling over gay weddings at the self-indulgent Grammys.

Anymore very few care about anything except whats in it for them - and that could include the benefits to be had by being good sheeple.

Well now, I think a lot more people may just watch “2016: Obama’s America”. Anyone who has lost their health insurance or now can´t afford the deductible or the 91 million people who are unemployed - many of whom really do want to work - will be more interested in it. Stupid, stupid move on the part of Obama´s DOJ. If they had ignored D´Souza, the impact of anything he said or did would be minimal compared to the firestorm this arrest will eventually make.

I don´t recall any of the suspected, and later proven, Communists actors/directors/producers in Hollywood ever being railroaded and thrown into jail (correct me if I´m wrong).

#12 is right. The public tip off is the $500,000 bail. I´ve never heard of such a high bail figure even for mass murders, and this is supposedly over a campaign contribution?

Klonsky´s tweet is evidence that the communists are feeling very secure that their purge of effective opposition voices from our public life can continue unabated.

Is there any doubt that the tyranny of communism is at the base of all the garbage spewing from debt loaded Washington and it´s media propagandists in New York, and its Communist sympathizes in Hollywood. The Communist power threat is so strong in Hollywood, that only a few strong personalities dare speak out: Jon Voight, Gary Sinese, Dennis Miller, a rare gutsy few.
Hollywood communism is so dominating that nobody is willing to speak out publically and truthfully at the risk of being shut out of the business for life!
Proof? There are no movies made about .Communism, for or against. Just silence ! So the masses can never learn about the terrors of communism being seen in any Hollywood controlled film. It´s disgustingly true.
Look what´s happening to Dinesh RIGHT NOW !
Look what happened to Breitbart !
Ben Shapiro wrote PRIMETIME PROPAGANDA, and the good news is that Ben is still alive and not under arrest.
2014 is the year of all years, the year of many more truth breakouts, of massive propaganda lies being revealed.
That´s good news.

And this time (if it isn´t too late) someone with power, (Rush, Hannity, etc) better start questioning the legitimacy of the elections, instead of remaining silent, AGAIN.

Obie´s handling of the D´Souza matter sure fits with others that Obie has destroyed. For example the chap who was imprisoned for publishing an anti Muslim video no one has ever seen that supposedly invited the Benghazi attack. Also Col. Lake who remains imprisoned for questioning Obie´s eligibility to be president. And many other examples of how Obie and his intelligencia systematically are destroying people who oppose his evil ways.

This White House and the UNjustice department will do everything they can to silence and imprison those who disagree with Obama and do not follow. Also will use anyone and anything to cover the tracks of Obama´s impotence, same with Hillary. Look at that guy still in jail for making a video they used to blame Benghazi on.

As the labor movement tells the story, two months ago, the silly, ungrateful Volkswagen factory workers in Tennessee foolishly rejected the generous invitation of the company and the United Auto Workers to welcome the Detroit-killing union with open arms. In an election supervised by the federal National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the workers in VW´s Chattanooga plant rejected UAW representation by a vote of 712 to 626. Amazingly, the UAW and the automaker both refuse to take the workers´ "no" for an answer. The two sides are acting in unison to overturn the democratically expressed will of the workers.

For more than 160 years, Henry David Thoreau´s essay on Civil Disobedience has inspired Americans to "make known what kind of government would command his respect" so that we could live under that government in good conscience. Ultimately, in a free society, that´s all we have that is truly our own; our conscience. Following its dictates, says Thoreau, is the only rational way to live your life and be true to oneself. It had been years since I read Civil Disobedience and I was surpised by how Cliven Bundy´s words echoed many of the theses in the essay. Legal experts overwhelmingly agree

A scientist for The Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) blasted BLM saying the federal agency “has a sacred duty to manage our public lands in the public interest…instead it is allowing a freeloading rancher and armed thugs to seize hundreds of thousands of acres of the people’s land as their own fiefdom.” CBD is funded by Earthjustice

Alas, another reporter asked me the same question I have been repeatedly asked for the past five years. “As an African-American, why are you a member of the Tea Party?” It dawned on me to ask the reporter, “If you are a thinking patriotic American, why are you not a member of the Tea Party?” It is stunning that reporters cannot see the absurdity and racism against white voters in their assumption that Tea Party membership (pushback against Obama's agenda) equals racism.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him."

Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police?

She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this
