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".

On Tuesday’s “New Day” on CNN, Associated Press White House correspondent Julie Pace pointed out that Democrats facing reelection are avoiding President Barack Obama as he has made trips around the country, sometime going to extraordinary lengths to do so. That included Wisconsin Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Mary Burke, who was absent during Obama’s visit to Milwaukee on Monday. “Some of these Democrats are twisting themselves all up in knots trying to figure out what the right thing to do is,” Pace said. “Do you appear with him?

President Obama is not worried. And that is unnerving. British Prime Minister David Cameron presented to parliament on Monday the alarming conclusions of European leaders who had met in Brussels over the weekend: “The European Council believes the creation of an Islamic caliphate in Iraq and Syria and the Islamist extremism and export of terrorism on which it is based is a direct threat to every European country.” Cameron added: “To confront the threat of Islamist extremism, we need a tough, intelligent, patient and comprehensive approach to defeat the terrorist threat at its source.

MIAMI— More than 200,000 immigrants who bought insurance through President Barack Obama´s health care initiative could lose their coverage this month if they don´t submit proof this week they are legally in the country, but language barriers and computer glitches are hindering efforts to alert them. The government mailed letters in English and Spanish last month notifying people that if immigration and citizenship documents aren´t submitted by Friday, their coverage under the Affordable Care Act will end Sept. 30. However, few seem to be responding. U.S. Health and Human Services officials released information Tuesday showing that 239,000 of the original

Authorities in Kazakhstan are on high alert after a container holding the highly radioactive and dangerous substance caesium-137 disappeared in the west of the country, police said Tuesday. A police spokesman for the Mangistau region said the material -- used for medical purposes and also a by-product of nuclear explosions and reactors -- appeared to have fallen off a vehicle transporting it. "The container with the radioactive isotope caesium-137 has not been found so far," police spokesman Azamat Sarsenbayev told AFP, adding that authorities discovered it had gone missing last Wednesday.

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates— The Islamic State militant group that has taken over large parts of Syria and Iraq and declared a self-styled caliphate poses one of the most significant threats to stability in the Middle East in years. But what danger does it immediately pose? Here are some questions and answers about the Islamic State group: DOES THE ISLAMIC STATE GROUP RUN A DE FACTO COUNTRY?

ISIS has released a video that it claims to show the beheading of U.S. journalist Steven Sotloff. Sotloff, who freelanced for Time and Foreign Policy magazines, had last been seen in Syrian in August 2013 until he appeared in a video released online last month by the Islamic State group that showed the beheading of fellow American journalist James Foley. Dressed in an orange jumpsuit against the backdrop of an arid Syrian landscape, Sotloff was threatened in that video with death unless the U.S. stopped airstrikes on the group in Iraq.

Washington Post owner Jeffrey P. Bezos is replacing Publisher Katharine Weymouth with Frederick J. Ryan Jr., a former Reagan administration official who was part of the founding leadership team of Politico, a primarily digital news organization that competes with The Post on political coverage, the company announced Tuesday. The departure of Weymouth, 48, ends eight decades of Graham family leadership of The Post, which her great-grandfather bought in 1933. Bezos, who acquired The Post for $250 million in a sale announced in August 2013, initially kept the senior leadership team intact. He told Weymouth during a visit to Washington, on

HOUSTON, Texas -- As Texas´ gas and oil industry continues to hum, some of the state´s old oil fields could start producing millions of barrels per day. This rings especially true for West Texas´ Permian Basin, which is expected to soon produce more than 2 million barrels of oil per day. Thanks to technological advances including fracking, some older oil fields in Texas are now booming again, according to the Wall Street Journal.

On Monday, as millions of American workers gathered with family and friends to celebrate and mark the end of summer, the nation´s union bosses were preparing to inject tens of millions of dollars from their members´ paychecks into the midterm elections in November. Unions have already spent $70 million to protect the Democrat majority in the Senate. Even this amount is likely to be dwarfed by a flood of money and manpower in the final weeks of the campaign. Union money, which is continually replenished through dues from members´ pay, is just the most public expression of union political power.

President Obama needs to take action to stop Islamic State (Isis) militants from targeting cities in America and Western Europe, two senators have warned. Without offering specifics on any threats or suggestions on how to confront them, the leaders of the Senate and House of Representatives intelligence committees urged the White House to work to prevent the Islamic State extremists from launching attacks on US soil. The bipartisan pair shared a dire warning against Isis, which now has control of vast swathes of Syria and Iraq, has killed civilians from that region and beheaded American journalist James Foley. “This is

Jackie Gleason made a career of it on the old “Honeymooners” show; Tom Haverford is absurdly incapable on “Parks and Recreation”; and Michael Scott brought the Peter Principle to new heights in “The Office.” But in real life, incompetence can be dangerous, even life-threatening (think a real-life Homer Simpson actually in charge of safety at a nuclear power plant). That’s where America finds itself nearly six years into the presidency of Barack Obama. There’s no question Mr. Obama has all but checked out.

Some black folks embrace victim status because it provides cover for their laziness and irresponsible lifestyles. Black Judases preach a false, evil gospel of victimhood-ism for profit.

President Obama’s spokesman emphasized that the United States tried to save journalist Steven Sotloff, who has reportedly been beheaded by ISIS terrorists. “The United States, as you know, has dedicated significant time and resources to try and rescue Mr. Sotloff,” Earnest told reporters when alerted that ISIS had claimed to have executed the kidnapped reporter. In the video, the authenticity of which Earnest could confirm, Sotloff is apparently killed by the same British jihadist who killed American photojournalist James Foley. “I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State,”

The FBI said late Monday that it was investigating leaked nude photos that targeted Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton. The agency told the Associated Press that it was addressing accusations that online accounts of celebrities, including Oscar-winner Lawrence, had been hacked, leading to the posting of their nude photographs online. In addition, Apple Inc. spokeswoman Natalie Kerris said the company was investigating whether any iCloud accounts were compromised, according to the AP.

An anonymous hacker reportedly gained access to private photos on the Hunger Games actress’s mobile phone, and those of 100 others, via Apple’s online storage system iCloud. The 60-odd pictures of Lawrence in varying stages of undress were then posted on the bulletin board website 4chan.

Between 1970 and 1990, the population of Philadelphia shrank by a quarter, dropping from 1.95 to 1.59 million. Like many American cities, it seemed caught in a downward spiral. Since then – like many American cities – Philadelphia has stabilized. The population now appears to have bottomed out at the millennium, and has been regaining residents over the past decade. But as it rebounds, Philly is becoming a different kind of city. In the two most recent decades, which comprise the bounce of the city’s population curve, owner-occupied housing dropped even more steeply than in the ’70s and ’80s. Between 2000 and
