'Obama's America' draws conclusions without any facts

“2016: Obama’s America”

Obama’s America Foundation

1 hour, 27 minutes

 

Dinesh D’Souza is a hack. I know, there are some out there that are saying, “What? No! He’s a muckraking crusader! He’s the Right’s answer to Michael Moore!”

Of course, there are more of you saying, “Who the heck is Dinesh D’Souza?” — which is as it should be. The director and writer of the recent Barack Obama “documentary,” “2016: Obama’s America” deserves nothing less than to return to the doldrums of obscurity from whence he came.

Full disclosure: I am a Barack Obama fan. I voted for him once and will likely do so again. I am perfectly primed to disagree with a negative exposé on the President. My criticism, however, has nothing to do with my politics. On the merits of the movie alone, as a piece of documentary filmmaking, “2016: Obama’s America” is just plain terrible.

D’Souza clearly thinks of himself as a counterpart to Michael Moore. Not only is he the writer/director, but he’s also the star. The film starts out with some background. D’Souza, like Obama, is the child of immigrants and of similar age and comparable background. He shows this, I imagine, to establish his bona fides, that our Dinesh is qualified to dissect Barack Obama because, but for the vagaries of fate, he could have been Barack Obama. D’Souza then proceeds to outline Obama’s background, crushing the birther movement in one fell swoop by announcing “Barack Obama Jr. was born on August 4, 1961, in a hospital in Honolulu, Hawaii.” Take that, Donald Trump!

The first third of the film is actually pretty interesting, if still pretty hacky. D’Souza manages to explain who Obama’s father was, what his relationship to Obama’s mother was, and how and why he was in the country. He establishes clearly how young Obama came to idolize an absent father, over the less-than-stable father that the boy’s mother had chosen as a replacement. D’Souza then goes on to show, how crushed an older Obama was to learn that the untarnished father he believed he had was actually just a man after all, and a fairly flawed man at that. D’Souza decently illustrates a whole swath of Barack Obama’s childhood, mostly because he’s quoting directly from Barack Obama’s own memoirs, “Dreams From My Father.”

The first part of the movie is tolerable, even interesting at times, if annoyingly over-produced. It is in the middle part of the movie that things really start to go awry. It is here that D’Souza’s analysis turns from an exploration for truth into a high-school understanding of pop psychology. Because Barack Obama at one time put his absent father on a pedestal, he must secretly wish to somehow become that father, or at least fulfill the potential that father possessed.

What potential is that? To bring down colonial empires. To destroy America’s power in the world, and to spread Socialism, maybe even ... gasp! ... Communism! Why, exactly, are we to believe that this is Obama’s plan? Your guess is as good as mine. Without a shred of actual evidence, D’Souza proceeds to travel the globe, meeting with people who have either tenuous connections to the president, or with fringe people who simply disagree with his policies. Interviews consist of leading questions, half-answers, and even outright disagreement, to which D’Souza nods knowingly, as though pieces of a puzzle are all falling into place.

The problem is that there are no pieces — there doesn’t even appear to be a puzzle. At one point, D’Souza interviews a man in Africa who may well have been one of Barack Obama Sr.’s best friends. The old man never knew the president, but he obviously knew and loved the father, a man who, it’s been established, was somewhat of a radical. The old man also clearly loves Obama, which is not a surprise considering our president is one of the most popular people in the world. When asked if he thought Barack Sr. would be proud of Barack Jr., the old man nods enthusiastically. D’Souza nods knowingly.

This is the type of damning evidence the director has to offer. Dinesh D’Souza has taken a few well-known facts about Obama — that he grew up without his father and spent much of his childhood abroad — added some emotional elements from the President’s own words, and has drawn wildly illogical conclusions. I can do that, too. Let’s see ... Obama is a lawyer. He lived in Chicago. He smokes. Conclusion: Barack Obama is a secret member of the mafia. The health care law will inevitably lead to greater control of public health, concluding with the complete illegalization of tobacco. At which point, Barack Obama will stand to make millions, maybe even billions, as a cigarette bootlegger.

Or, if that doesn’t make sense, how about this: Obama is rich. He grew up without his father. He fought for justice (lawyer again.) Obviously, he’s a super-hero. He may even actually be Batman, but I can’t be 100 percent sure.

By the end of the film things have completely gone off the rails. D’Souza, erroneously believing he’s got us on the hook with his fanciful theories, spins a nightmare scenario of Obama’s next term. Choking debt leads to a destroyed economy. Muslim-friendly foreign policy leads to the crushing of Israel by the United States of Islam. The film ends with a frightened little boy reading a history book that list the American Era as ending in 2016.

Wow. I can imagine what some of my friends on the Right are probably thinking at this point. Michael Moore does the same thing and gets nominated for an Oscar. No, he doesn’t. Yes, Moore is biased. And yes, he spins the facts to make the conclusions come out the way he wants. But he starts with facts. Meticulously researched facts. Massaged conclusions, yes, but built on real data, not vague psychological speculation. And as a director, Moore knows what he’s doing. He builds tension, uses graphics judiciously, and manages to let people swing using their own words. Sometimes he goes too far — ambushing an obviously diminished Charleton Heston at his home to harass him about the NRA was wrong, but usually he’s effective.

Purely as a filmmaker, D’Souza doesn’t know when to quit. His graphics are non-stop and overwhelming. Each interview seems as if it were conducted using multiple cameras from a dozen angles. At three separate points D’Souza actually “phones in” the interview, the result being we see both sides of the conversation — the interviewee on one phone and D’Souza on another, nodding knowingly. Why?

“2016: Obama’s America” is the worst kind of political propaganda because it preys on people who are disposed to be fearful about the direction of our country. And it does so without any solid basis. D’Souza hopes that he can fire up the faithful with slick graphics and convoluted theories, and is betting on the fact that they will overlook the obvious lack of any real research. He trots out worn-out old bogeymen like Rev. Jeremiah Wright and that Weather Underground guy, but he never actually uncovers anything of substance about the president himself. This makes “2016” about as hollow as D’Souza himself.

Grade: D-

“2016: Obama’s America” is rated PG for some scary music and frightening folderol.

Education

This type of "journalism" is why we need better education. There are so many people who use words like socialism and communism and don't even know what they mean. If American kids did better in school, they'd know the definitions of these words since 10th or 11th grade, instead of here about it from somebody else, say "it's bad", and go on from there.

“Who the heck is Barack Hussein Obama?”

“Who the heck is Dinesh D’Souza?”

how about: "Who the heck is Barack Hussein Obama?"

FACT:
his mother is a communist. ("gasp")
his mothers parents were Communists.
his mentor Frank was a Communist.
(Frank Marshall Davis – Communist Party USA Member #47544)
his father was a Communist.
his father was a goat herding Luo tribesman.
his college friends were Marxists.
His friends Ayers & Dorhn are Domestic terrorists.
he is a dope smoking, cocaine snorting druggie.
millions of dollars spent hiding his college transcripts,
passport, Connecticut Social Security number for a child raised in Hawaii.

These things are TRUE.
Many of these are his statements. From HIS BIOGRAPHY.
who are you to doubt it?

Who are you to DENY IT?

Dinesh D'Souza has stated publically that he followed the propaganda style that Michael Moore used quite successfully in anti-American liberal supporting films. No surprise there.
Sauce for the goose, is sauce for the gander.

By the way, no one needs to see the film, as it is a full review of information that has been presented in the news previously, that is the 'real data' that it was built on.
It is a 'solid basis', whether you agree with the concerns of conservatives or not.

Everything presented IS the 'substance about the president himself', you may blind yourself to those facts and applaud all of the liberal progressive changes to The United States of America that you obviously support. You are free to do so.

Why does the Clarion pretend that this is a movie review.
Why not sum up the liberal commentary simply:

""I am a Barack Obama fan. I voted for him once and will likely do so again.""Chris Jenness is a freelance graphic designer, artist and movie buff who lives in Nikiski. (The end.)

Movie review should be

Movie review should be designated political opinion.
Let’s help you out with your lack of sufficient education:

Communism:
A political theory derived from Karl Marx, advocating class war and leading to a society in which all property is publicly owned and each person works and is paid according to their abilities and needs.

A Communist is”
[Marxist sense:] A person who works to bring about the overthrow of capitalism by the working class, and the transformation of capitalist society into socialism and then into communist society. Communists attempt to do this collectively, which means they form and promote revolutionary parties.

Socialism:
A theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole.

A Socialist believes:
Socialists across Europe and the United States debated and extrapolated on Marx's initial definitions and their application under widely varying conditions, socialism gradually divided into three major philosophies: revisionism, Anarchism, and bolshevism. Revisionist socialist believed they could achieve civilized progress and higher consciousness through economic justice and complete equality.

Socialism VS Communism:
People often confuse "socialism" with the concept of "communism." While the two ideologies share much in common -- in fact communism encompasses socialism -- the primary difference between the two is that "socialism" applies to economic systems, whereas "communism" applies to both economic and political systems.

**But of course, I hesitate to note that a ten year old with a computer could look this up, and EDUCATE himself, as obviously the liberal teachers union will not teach them.
Do try to keep up. And YES America is the best system.

journalism vs. movie review opinion piece

This is an opinion piece. A strongly vacuous deragatory disparaging commentary. However,
The writer is entitled to express his opinion and beliefs.
Journalism is a profession. It requires investigation, evaluation, examination, and editing. Investigative reporting is telling both sides (and ALL sides) of an issue, after judicious verification of all points.

Scifi movie for sure

Let me also get straight to the point. I did not vote for the Obamanation Of Desolation in 2008 nor shall i vote for him in 2012, so that settles that and now for as Paul Harvey used to say "The Rest of the Story," or at least some more about this scifi.
Obama was not born in Hawaii in a hospital in Honolulu because the one his birth certificate is said to be from did not exist until 8-9 years later after his birth. So there your right Donald Trump as ALL Birthers are after all.
Now for Obama's racial mix, 50% white, 43% bedioun arab and 7% african. Obama's grand dad, part african and arab married a Bedioun Arab woman producing Obama's dad who married a white woman producing Obama.
More of Obama's family tree is that he is cousin to almost every president in americas past and Royalty of England and Spain thru the Samual Hinckley line out of Cape Cod in the 1800's. Remember the Hinckley that shoot Reagan as vp Bush Sr sat in cousin Hinckleys dads office in Denver Co waiting for the good news that Bush Sr was now president as Reagan was dead??
Well it didn't work out right for them, so they went with plan "B" the next election. Where Bush Sr was elected and stated many times that it was time for the New World Order and that it could not be stopped and would come. Cousins Bill & Hillary Clinton next, then Jr and cousin Dick Cheney and now good old cuz Barrack Obama, all with the same dream act of a OWO.
All this info was on the New England Historic Geneological Societies web site, but alas no more as like all other truths about the choosen messiah Obama it has all vanished from record and only the fabricated now exists.
All this info was mentioned in cousin Dick Cheneys wife Lynn Cheney's book 'Blue Skies, No Fences,' all about the family tree and now cousin Obama's presidency to fulfill the family dream. Then there is the British Royalty family side of this dream act and how the Bush family has been kin to EVERY one of them.
Make no mistake this is not a movie, but real life, and it is becoming a scifi at every turn and will not get any better, but will do just as their Dream was planned bring forth the OWO at just the right time as planned long ago.
The funny thing about history for say the last 2000 years until now in regard to world happenings or news, and that is that the world news is finally catching up to what the Bible, Torah, word of God promised would come to be for the last days, or End of the Age, Era of Time.
We see the entire world rushing head long into WWIII and economic collapse globally, all of which will usher in that man long called for that will deliver the world from it's global morass but with a price. The price for deliverance from the global morass will be complete and total worship and acceptance of his World Order and single religion by all and death to all that refuse to join his Union of One. Revelation 12;-13; shows this all happening with global electeonic control of every person on earth in every regard to daily life for both the rich and the poor alike.

So since this is my post what say i have the last word here about reality, OK?

We will never recover from what the choosen messiah has done at every turn to distroy OUR Nations Fundamentals or Hope in God, and replace them with his fundamentals and hopelessness in false gods with no Morals what so ever.
As the book of Daniel states the coming world leaders dream and total disregard for anything or anyone and will do as he pleases we see the OBAMANATION OF DESOLATION doing like wise and you had better prepare and not believe fairytale movies or stories like Chris Jenness and others are spreading about Obama being a good deal.
Because in REALITY he could care less about you and yours just like his cousins from both parties past also didn't care but continually worked towards their appointed destiny for their gods OWO and their god may just return this year of 2012 as 89 differant ancient societies have predicted he would at the End of the Age, all in accord with what Gods word said would come someday. Is that day here or just real close?

Good grief

This guy watches a movie and writes his opinion of it. I agree or I don't agree. It's his opinion.
I confess that personally I like his use of the word "folderol" because it is going out of style and this may help it survive.
It's amazing that others can ferret out that he is one of "those people" from this information. 'So easy to use one's own convoluted thought process to get inside other's heads and figure them out, label them and call them names.
Solution?? Don't read his reviews. It will just encourage him to write more. You know how authors are. Or just go to the movies he gives a poor rating to because you are sure to like them because he is a backward thinker. (see, now I am figuring YOU out)

Great Movie

The liberal bias in the media hates movies like this. If the main stream media in America had done their job and properly vetted Obama, instead of licking his jack boot, we would not need movies like this one.

Great flick!

Obama is the Manchurian Candidate.

Obama and the USSC

In his first term as President, Barack Obama nominated and seated two (liberal) Supreme Court justices (Sotomayor and Souter) making the bench fairly balanced (four liberal justices, four conservative justices and one swing justice).
Since this court has been seated, there has been a number of decisions handed down that met in the middle, including Obamacare (Roberts, a conservative, had an opinion in favor of the legality of the law).
So what's my point? My point is, there was one decision concerning the second amendment which followed party lines with the swing vote (Kennedy) writing an opinion upholding second amendment rights 5 to 4 (District of Columbia v Heller).
Currently, there are two justices on the bench who were seated when Reagan was president and one when George H.W. Bush was president. In all likelihood, the next president will nominate and seat three justices who will hold sway over the bench for several decades.
Of course, all of us would like a court void of political ideology or opinion and base decisions on the merit of the law on a constitutional basis, but rarely does that happen with a heavily imbalanced court.
So I leave you with is question. Which direction would you like the country to go constitutionally? What are your opinions concerning basic rights such as the second amendment? What is your stance on Roe v Wade?
You see? Voting is not as simple as stepping into a booth and making a mark as SPW promotes. Actual study of the facts and research is the only way your vote truly counts! Anything less and all you are doing is playing darts with our political system and hoping you'll hit the board. BE AN INFORMED VOTER! Watch the news, but don't find your facts there! The media will spin the news to fit their political objectives. Check their facts against the truth. Use the internet for something other than EBAY and blogging!

Balderdash!

I only say Balderdash to sound as edumacated as someone who uses foderol;-) Let me set the record straight. Micheal Moore is a hack and it sounds like Dinesh D'Souza is too. I have not seen this film and I am good friends with the reviewer Chris Jenness even though he is a lost political soul swimming in a sea of partisan turmoil. It sounds like Dinesh did miss the mark. I think he should have just read Dreams of my Father outloud and that probably would have convinced people not to vote for Obama. Maybe throw up campaign promises versus actual performance. Is Obama a peace candidate? Look at drone strike and troop deployment facts. Has unemployment gone down? Those facts are easily found. Has average income gone up? also easily found. Has his administration been transparent. I think we all know the answer to that. Obama deserves reelection about as much as Dinesh deserves to make another movie. They are both hacks making uninformed decisions. Of course I am a hack making an uniformed decision too as I have not seen this movie. Keep on trucking Chris that was a very well written piece. A very partisan piece but well written and entertaining. When does Avengers 2 come out? Bread and circus, Bread and Circus.

New Obama American Flags for Vets.

Did any of you see the New American Flags remade for Vets for Obama, as well as all other govt. dependants that believe the continual lies of govt. control & dependance GOOD NOT BAD?
The NEW Flags show blood Red swipes across white for stripes, with the OBAMANATION OF DESOLATIONS logo of a blue circle with blue strips across it. They also have a flag of America with the same OBAMANATION symbols used to replace the stars & stripes. Vets for Obama probably get them free.
Also did you see where OUR warriors that are fighting are not allowed to vote this year as they won't get the ballots in time to do so due to an inadvertant slip up of getting ballots to them. If i was the OBAMANATION i would not want any fighting Americans vote either because thats alot of NO VOTES.
Just keep supporting the OBAMANATION and his coming Peaceful Islamic Winter ment to push the entire world & American in to total global revolts to usher in their OWO. Ever heard of declaring of martial law in America? It would completely do away with OUR Constitutional Rights and Obama gets his Dream and college degree masters from studying the constitution and ways to by pass it.
As i have said when this chosen one was almost sworn in, but flubbed the OATH, i said America would never see another FREE Election for President.

Due to this being my post i get the last word again.
So how long does it take for a nation to fall with all the nukes floating world wide with some circling America placed in 7 major cities waiting for the go signal?

If Congress won't act Obama will

Then there is the promise of the chosen one with his claims of "If Congress fails to act and pass laws that He will step in and pass them without them." REALLY?
Well that goes to show you how blind or supporting people are for the OBAMANATION OF DESOLATIONS Dream of fundamentally changed for the chosen ones new religion.
Remember the stupidity of we don't know whats in the Health bill, so it has to be passed so they can read it and find out?

May the God we have decided we no longer need forgive us of our worship of men and their Evil Dreams to do away with what God has planned for all creation for Good.
And Romney ain't much better, but is the lesser of the TWO evils of him and Obama.

Obama's 2016

In 2000 after Cousin Clinton the national debt was $5.6 Trillion. At the end of Cousin Bush Jr's presidency 8 years later the debt was $10.6 Trillion.
Now just after 3 years 9 months of cousin Obama's presidency the debt just crossed over to $16+ Trillion and with over 3 months left no telling how high it will be.
If the OBAMANATION gets another 4 yrs of giving away OUR Nations future with hand outs and sharing equally by taking from those that work to give to those that don't, it's no telling how high it will be. I would guess well over $23-30+ Trillion at the rate the chosen one is going. So in reality this title of Obama's 2016 America is right on track as when he gets done it sure wont be Americans America.
And this is supposed to be a GOOD THING?

I might have a little more respect for your comments if you got the facts right instead of regurgitating rightest drool .

If Obama was not born in Hawaii , because the hospital did not yet exist , then I suppose you also believe the two Hawaiian newspapers that reported his birth also were not yet in existence ? I mean how far are you going to go ?

I guess this conspiracy has been in the planning for decades by the illuminati and Dan Brown , ha ha.

still not one single reason given to vote for BHO.

Well, so far………not one single reason to vote for BHO has been written.

The comical yet horrifying part of what is progressing on the Left, is their intense belief that they are inherently (almost by magic) exclusively able to RULE THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD, and preside over EVERY SINGLE PERSON living on this planet.

Regardless of how unskilled and unsuccessful they are in their own lives. Progressives believe they are gifted with the supreme power of a God, and must take over control of planet earth. Even if they live on handouts, food stamps, and free stuff given to them by successful, skilled, and productive workers. Mind boggling.

If you are managing the simple task of living, eating, and caring for your needs without government financial aid and State welfare, why do you still impose your violent demands that you MUST CONTROL everyone else. How so? You are at a minimal survival level.

Are you more skilled that a doctor or a nurse?
Are you more talented than an auto or airplane mechanic?
Are you more intelligent than a chemist that makes the pills that allow you to live comfortable?
Are you more powerful than a lumberjack, a policeman, a fireman?
Are you even more industrious than the growers, and dealers that give you the means to use your illegal substances, because you KNOW they are some wildly independent people? Even if everyone else submits, the criminal class never will.

Now SOMEBODY PLEASE explain how someone whose entire lexicon is “”repukes the party of lies, liars and hypocrites”” has the ability to send a man to the moon, cure disease, grow one single crop of wheat, or dictate the form of government to dominate his neighbors. Speak up cowboy, without your poetry.

Also explain how an anarchist, who only destroys things, has the right, or even the abiity to take our entire property, money, and government to rule the rest of us and bring on his fantasy idea of utopia. (Oh hello, what a beautiful piece of poetic zombie writing, let's celebrate it. is that your best achievement?)

(it is illuminative that the sentence construction, spelling, and grammar is of interest to you tinhorns, yet you do not dispute, nor negate, or discuss the actual propositions.)

it is suspected that you will not discuss rules, regulations, laws, directives, etc. that offend you, as your Democrat politicians and the Republican politicians are HAND IN GLOVE, and ARM AND ARM together is these atrocities.

soldotna54 good points, BUT!

As for made up words to denagrate the Abomination of desolation of America as Obama is doing i think it's absolutely alright and correct to compare his desire with those of the coming world ruler as mentioned in the book of Daniel. It's was an inadvertant slip every time i say OBAMANATION, but when one looks at his Dream of Obama's America, one can eazily just add Obama and Nation to gether for OBAMANATION along with his total desolation actions at every turn added what does on get?
Now about the question of whether or not Obama is a Christian, that fact can eazily be proved to be a lie by Obama, simply by his actions at every turn to fundamentally change Americas God given morals into something new and proclaiming that this new hope & Fundamental change will be something to BELIEVE in. Sounds like a False religion to me.
When at every turn Obama pushes to sanction and legalize blatant sins, or behaviors, which Gods word says are sins and not acceptable, then one must stop and ask who is this person Obama trying to BS, US or God?
Then there is the wonderful, peaceful religion of Islam supposedly sent down by god which Obama claims he loves, which is at the total other end of the spectrum from belief in Christ and salvation. The term Christians has become a bad name for true followers & believers in Jesus Christ, Jesus who says that he is the only way to God, yet Obama says there are many ways to God.
You, or i, or Obama, can't have it both ways, ours & Gods, if they differ totally in message, now can we? One has to be wrong and the other has to be right, one the truth, one a lie.

As i have said before there is ABSOLUTELY NO DIFFERANCE between Obama and his supposed religion and love for Islam and Romneys. Both are exactly alike when one studies their founding and their Governmental style of rule of people, with religion as a tool of control and both have & do use death against those that refuse to obey completely, as history shows. But people don't want to read history as that might make them have to use their heads and make their own decisions and not depend on others for total control of their lives which many think is eazier on them.
Both were founded by a New Way Foreward with instructions from an Angel supposedly, and both making claims that God got it wrong the first time and has now got it right, so here is the New Way Foreward please forgive God for being an idiot and messing up at first and please believe and accept this New Way now no matter which group comes with these new ways foreward.
Really? God messed up and these groups now have the right way which excludes Israel as Gods chosen people, Jerusalem as Gods chosen Holy City and the Land of Israel as Gods chosen Land which he gave the Jews forever? Then we are also to believe that Jesus as the ONLY WAY according to Gods word is not true and there are many ways now without Jesus's atoning blood shead for the remission of sin for all being the ONLY WAY?
REALLY?
As i said before many times, we are in a spiritual battle of good against evil and right now evil is being allowed to govern mankind from high places in the global society of governments of men, all until God says ENOUGH, then the End of the Age will come for judgement against ALL unGodlyness after the 7 years of satans last stand known as the OWO as Revelation 13; shows for one.
Our choice is between evil or evil this election and it will not matter one bit. We have to decide which evil is closer moraly to our beliefs and go with that one, or not vote. Either way we're gonna get our wish of the True Gods removal from OUR Nation, fundamental changes to believe in or not and Gods wrath poured out on us for those choices period. So get ready troubles coming to America soon and in fact already has started.

In closing as this is my post i will say this.
I'm a believer in Jesus christ and what his word, the Bible and Torah have to say. I trust in God to keep his promise of vengence against evil, so i don't have to hate or kill others that disagree with me only present them with a choice. If you want to believe that God messed up and didn't get it right the first time and has sent these new ways foreward which are a total opposite of what God said, then feel free to Get-r-done.
Thats your God given right to do so, by the way, that right to freely chose is being taken away as we type by many.
Realize that it's not humans right to judge or kill you for chosing what you want to believe as many religions past & present have done.
God will judge each of us according to the things we have done, and the things we have not done in relation to his eternal plan of redemption for mankind which he loves, and Satan hates. It's free, just by asking, you can't do anything to earn it, by being good or by killing others as acts of good. It's all about Gods plan, not mankinds of Satans which both differ from Gods.

Yahweh and Yeshua are GR8R by the way!

They will escape, and throw off the chains of tyranny

The ‘CATastrophy’ that you are bragging about, re-electing BHO, will not touch the rich, the right, or the free. They will escape, and throw off the chains that you happily place around your own neck.

This EX Democrate can see now

As i have said before i voted for Carter, Clinton and finally broke the curse of total dependance on others telling me how to think for my self and am now a Demopublican that claims undeclaired for more choices rather than straight party lines.
My hope is for everyone to stop and smell the sulfur from all the bombs going off as it heads to Obama's America inorder to Fundamentally change us into a nation of total dependance on govt. How does Obama plan on doing this? By doing away with OUR soverign rights afforded us ALL under the Constitution which Obama studied exclusively for the purpose of destroying it, and has gone about this task for many years not just the last 3 1/2. By making the entire Islamic worrld hate us more than they already do by fighting against them for the means of only stirring the pot, with no intentions what so ever of winning the battle against their ideals of world wide Islamic rule.
Please remember what Louis Farrahkan, the American Islamic leader said about Obama being the messiah that would lead us into the new world order and that the youth would follow him? Some people just can't see the forrest for the trees which shadow the real truth of the forest being there no matter what history shows as true.
A question for you Obama supporters, do you really think the peaceful muslims will care if you voted for Obama and wont kill you? Why would you, when they come to America and hang their flags from the White House as they promised to do?? Why would they when they kill other muslims daily for sport in their religion of Hate & Distruction with no salvation for anyone under the guide lines they must suffer and try to be accepted??

Laugh now because when the messiah Obama gets his work done of changing America, it's not gonna be anything but tears and daily dread for your life as you struggle to survive for the bad choices you made to accept and follow this False messiah off the cliff into the depths of Hell for eternity. Hell was created for Satan and his demons, but also a place for rebelious mankind that wanted it their way, instead of Gods way, as they freely made their choice of who to believe in and serve, REPUBLICANS, DEMOCRATES OR INDEPENDANTS ALIKE ALL TOGETHER FOR ETERNITY.

Yahweh & Yeshua are GR8R!

Death by Government is funny to you?

Death by Government is funny to you?

Communist U.S.S.R. -- 61 million dead
Communist China -- 35 million dead
Socialist Nazi Germany -- 21 million dead
Nationalist China – 10 million dead
Japan -- 6 million dead
Cambodia -- 2 million dead
Turkey -- 1.8 million dead
North Korea, Poland, Pakistan, Mexico, Yugoslavia, Czarist Russia
All are vile countries and they have been super mass-murdering states, just in this last century.

Their motives were for such pure ideology as making a new 'socialist' man, purifying the racial groups, and plundering the most prosperous for the benefit of a specific group of favored people.

My personal favorite; and the one that you frivolous piffle heads need to think of, is this one: the imposition of FEAR and TERROR to gain control over – and obedience from others.

The old classical liberalism is at an end in America. It was replaced by experimental collectivism and a new socialist interventionist redistributivist totalitarian state in several countries in the 20th century. Mass murder of innocent people is Not entertainment.
Mass murder by Socialists/Communists is not welcome here in the USA. It is not funny.

If you want to be a ‘useful idiot’ ( communist leader Vladimir Lenin’s term, not mine) move to one of those countries and practice your politics there. You don’t have to tear down America and build your communist dream here – Your beloved Utopia exists NOW and you can join in today, move there, the sooner the better.

""I don't pay more than are

""I don't pay more than are legally due and frankly if I had paid more than are legally due I don't think I'd be qualified to become president," Romney has previously said."

the MYTH deliberately under paid his 2011 taxes in
order to keep above the 13% he had earlier this year
claimed to be the lowest percentage of taxes he had
paid in the last ten years.

so the MYTH has basically adMYTHted that he is
UNQUALIFIED to be president....

then we already knew that didn't we..... lol

repukes the party of lies, liars and hypocrites.

Surrounded By Half Wits

I knew I didn't like getting stuck on this peninsula, but after reading these comments, I am sure of it and will work even harder to get away from here.

Nowhere have I read such racsist blather, lies and innuendo, and outright dangerous rhetoric. Many of you speak traitoriously. Most of you show great ignorance and it's obvious where you get your ideas...straight from Faux Snooze. Your lack of knowledge frightens me. None of you must be a 47%'er.

Seafarer Great Plan here's some suggestions

You must not be paying attention to your socialists’ government leaders. The "non-traitors.'

You DON'T HAVE TO WORK HARD to get what you want.

Go to the food bank - get food, fill your traveling ice chest.
Go to the welfare office – get cash, fill your gas tank.
Go to the unemployment office – get more cash, for travel expenses.
Steal something from your neighbors, local businesses or strangers
(People don’t seem to get caught and convicted round here, and it’s tax free.)

Now take action and get out of the position you are holding. Flee. Run for your liberal life. Make it to Seattle Washington and live the Democratic Dream. Be happy there, you’ll fit right in. It’s a Big Bright Blue State, join occupy something-or-another. Live contentedly.

An example of being smart

An example of being smart can be demonstrated by the key note speaker for Obama, slick Willy Clinton.
Willy said 'trust me Obama is the only way foreward or hope for America,' and this from the man that also said 'I did not have sexual relations with that woman period.'
Really? Funny how history shows that to be a bold faced lie and he wants people to trust him with his claims again?
OH! Did ya see where Monica Lowinski is set to get $12+ million dollars for telling it all on slick Willy?
I'm sure it will not be a book of how honest & trust worth Willy is or how Willy is one to be trusted at anything he says either, especially how GR8 Obama is.
But that's what cousins do, they lie about and for each other depending on which is more benificial for their FAMILY DREAM ACT, thus we see Willy telling lies again for his cousin Barack Hussein Osama to try and BS America again into believing he is trust worthy and please believe him this time.
No matter who wins, if we can even make it till November, it will not make one single bit of differance to Americas sunk ship for OUR desires to remove God from OUR lives and accept these false gods new hope and fundamental change to believe in.
History shows what happened to the Roman empire due to their welfare state mentality and lust for sports and sex, and America is an EXACT replica of Rome and will follow down the very same road to distruction and Obama was the chosen one, messiah heralded to lead us into that Era.
Just one key note of why we are going down that same Road as Rome did is as follows.
AS AMERICA HAS DONE TO ISRAEL, SO SHALL GOD DO UNTO AMERICA, as well as ALL nations. Zechariah 14;

It's everyones freedom to vote for who they want, but i would be very careful if i was all of you when placing any hope in mankind or governments of men, not matter what the party.

Yahweh & Yeshua are Greater!
