Dinesh D´Souza: the man
rewriting America´s history

Telegraph [UK], by Tim Stanley

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/5/2014 12:50:53 PM

He has been called everything from "insightful" and "penetrating" to a "nutty" peddler of conspiracy theories who seems to write "under the influence of several bongsful of giggle-weed". So it should come as no surprise to learn that Dinesh D’Souza´s latest film has had a decidedly mixed reaction in America. A documentary film about what would have happened to the world if America had never existed (spoiler: things don’t turn out well), the film, called America, segues into an attack on Hillary Clinton – played by a young actress who formerly appeared as a weregirl in the gothic horror show True

Tim ´ s trying to smear the movie, the actors and actresses and D´Souza. Instead, why not just critique the movie? Why not review how well it does what it´s trying to do? Review the quality of the production?

Timmy, your own biases are showing.

I think I´ll go see it.

SInce the left has been so good at rewriting history, it could appear that factual history looks rewritten to them. I will see it and make a judgement as I think I know what our real history is, warts and all.

Hard to believe that Tim Stanley and the Telegraph are lecturing the good citizens of America about history. The UK continues it´s descent into the dustbin of history because of the policies championed by Tim and the Telegraph. Open immigration of Muslims being the most destructive, followed closely by a religious belief in Man-caused Global Warming. D´Souza has been right so far.

I also saw it yesterday. The audience here, a mere 40 miles outside Los Angeles, applauded at the end. Were there things that could have been better? Of course. But the arrogance of these leftist clowns, determined to dismiss it rather than refute DeSouza shows what hatemongers are about.

Saw the movie on Wednesday - our TEA Party went to see it as a group. Needless-to-say we were pleased that there was honesty on the big screen. Hopefully some other courageous Hollywood types will do more films. I can´t believe that there aren´t any more Ronald Reagans, Jimmy Stewarts, and Clint Eastwoods.

#6, there are still a great many in the UK that insist that the US was NOT the key to winning WWII, but that we simply "helped" and provided much needed weapons. They feel the UK won the war by pushing out the early attempts at invasion by Hitler in the Battle of Britain.

The US and other forces pushed up through Africa, then Italy, then took out the Axis forces on the coast of France before sweeping through Europe. That would never have been able to be done without the US hardware, manpower, skill and precious blood.

I did not see this film, but I will tell you without a reasonable doubt what would have happened if the US was not part of WWII.

Hitler would have tired of the Russian front, pulled back, and likely made a deal with the Russians. He would have then refocused on Europe and strengthening control. He would have then mounted a full scale assault on the UK, which was out of men, machines and supplies. They would have been crushed.

All forces contributed, but the US made the win of WWII possible. It would be a very different Europe today without the US, and there would still be an "Iron Curtain".

The surprising Ebola connection to chocolate

Just when you thought you knew all the consequences of the Ebola pandemic, here’s another one: it could affect the supply of chocolate. Of course that doesn’t rise to the seriousness of illness and death, but it does show how much Ebola affects trade and production. An estimated 70% of the world’s cocoa beans come from the West African countries of Ivory Coast, Ghana, Nigeria and Cameroon. Ivory Coast is the world’s largest producer, exporting 37.8% of the world’s cocoa, according to the Wall Street Journal. (In fact, Ivory Coast just posted a record harvest and the government increased its

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama celebrated 22 years of marriage Friday and the husband-in-chief offered marriage advice to a new bride while at a stop in Princeton, Indiana. "He´ll screw up a bunch," Mr. Obama said. "Eventually we learn, but it takes us a little longer, because we´re not as smart." For her part, the first lady, who Obama said "has been very patient with me," tweeted a photo from their wedding, which took place Oct. 3, 1992, wishing her spouse a happy anniversary. (Tweet)

While small towns and cities throughout the country are gearing up for Halloween, one city in Ohio has a different kind of municipal decor — Planned Parenthood banners. One reader sent The Daily Caller these photos of Planned Parenthood banners attached to lampposts throughout the town of Wooster in northeastern Ohio. “As I drove through the small town,” he told us, “I noticed approximately one dozen Planned Parenthood banners posted prominently along the city streets.” (Photo) TheDC called Wooster’s mayor’s office, who told us that it isn’t responsible for the banners, and directed us to a group called

Judging from the recent photos released of the set, like the round table used for one-on-one interviews, we’re thinking Todd’s personality can best be described as “POÄNG.” (Photo) This is Todd’s panel desk, which was made by attaching a LACK table to a GLASHOLM: (Photo) This is Todd’s America Shelf, probably inspired by Pinterest’s Ikea Hacks: (Photo) And there is reportedly an “informal interview” credenza, which could look like any of these:

A record 92,584,000 Americans 16 and older did not participate in the labor force in September, as the labor force participation rate dropped to 62.7 percent, a level it has not seen in 36 years, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Friday. Six times in the last twelve months, the participation rate has been as low as 62.8 percent; but September´s 62.7 percent is the lowest since February of 1978. The participation rate is the percentage of the civilian noninstitutional population who participated in the labor force by either having a job or actively seeking one. Those not in the

The Obama administration found itself on defense Friday after former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta criticized the White House for its policies on Iraq, with the State Department and others publicly disputing his claims. Panetta chided the president´s team in his forthcoming memoir, excerpts of which have been published in the media. He alleges the White House didn´t try hard enough to strike a deal with Iraq in 2011 to leave a residual force of U.S. troops behind, in turn opening the door for the region to become a haven for the Islamic State. In newly published excerpts, he also criticized

IRVING — Former President George W.

The dictionary defines nepotism as, “the practice among those with power or influence of favoring relatives or friends, especially by giving them jobs.” It perhaps should come to no surprise to anyone even remotely aware of the ethical scandals permeating Democrats in the State Senate that a new scandal should emerge surrounding untoward hiring practices in the State Senate, and a cover-up by Senate Leadership. (More on that cover-up in a moment.) First I think it is important to recap that the Senate, as an institution, is clearly at an ethical low point. Former Democratic State Senate Rod Wright finally resigned

Vice President Biden has delivered some colorful lines over the years, including calling President Obama’s healthcare plan a “big f****** deal,” but his best Bidenism yet might have happened Thursday night. Speaking at the Harvard Institute of Politics in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Biden was asked a question by the vice president of the student body, prompting Biden to joke about how he feels about being number two. “Isn’t it a b****?” Biden said to laughs from the crowd. “I mean, excuse me, the vice presidency?

Yasser Tabbaa, a specialist on Islamic art and architecture, remembers taking many trips to a 13th-century shrine dedicated to the Imam Awn al-Din, in Mosul in northern Iraq. The building was one of the few to survive Mongol invasion, never mind the destructive effects of weather and time. And this shrine had a stunning vaulted ceiling, like a honeycomb. “It is a beautiful pyramidal tower at the edge of the Tigris,” said Mr. Tabbaa, who taught at New York University Abu Dhabi and lives in Ann Arbor, Mich. His heart fell this summer, however, when he saw an online video

PRINCETON, IND. — President Obama on Friday credited his administration´s policies with helping to boost the economy and said the recovery is "real ... steady and happening." Speaking at a steel plant outside Evansville, Ind., on "Manufacturing Day," Obama touted the unemployment rate, which on Friday fell to 5.9 percent in September, the lowest number in six years. The report said the economy added 248,000 jobs in September. Obama said the country is "on pace" for the strongest job growth since the 1990s and experiencing the longest period of uninterrupted growth in U.S. history. Still, he acknowledged that the

DAKAR- Journalists will need official permission to cover many aspects of the Ebola outbreak in Liberia, under new rules that the government said aimed at protecting patient privacy. The move was announced on Thursday, the day an American cameraman working for NBC News in Liberia became the first foreign journalist to test positive for Ebola. There was no indication that the new rules were related to that case. Growing international media interest in the outbreak that has killed nearly 2,000 people and infected 3,696 in Liberia has highlighted the challenges to the West African country´s healthcare system.

My story about the president talking to the black caucus about white people inflicting constant racial injustice on black people came in at 1500 words. I was just getting warmed up.

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

While the content is vicious, angry and sure to tickle conservative journalists and pols, the writing is colorful, even entertaining.“A slapdash Secret Service detail isn’t what’s wrong with the White House — the real scandal is a President who is so complacent about protecting Americans,” the headline blares. Piers predicts that now that President Obama went on “60 Minutes” and distanced himself from U.S. national intelligence agencies on the rapid spread of ISIS, he’s guaranteed himself leaks to the media for the remainder of his
