The theater was packed.
"2016: Obama's America" was playing at the local Midway theater in Lewes, Delaware. The movie run began the Friday before Labor Day and I rejoiced. No one goes to the movies "downey ocean" on Labor Day weekend.
I decided to go on Labor Day proper. Let the tourists stay at the beach, I was going to the movies.
The place was packed.
Oh there were a few empty seats but believe me, I go to those movies all the time, granddaughter in tow, and usually about the same time, a middle of the day hour, a matinee.
I have never seen that movie so packed at that time of day.
But there was room and I daresay to all yon readers in lower and slower Sussex county, just plan to arrive a half hour earlier and you'll probably get a seat. Do not assume that because it's a documentary that nobody will go.
You'll leave scared out of your wits.
As stated, the movie is a documentary. The camera work, however, is terrific, hardly the boring views of documentaries.
It's the story of, well, Barack Obama.
The producer, Dinesh D'Souza, was born in India and served on the Reagan administration.
The story of Barack Obama is told. How his parents met, how they married, had a child, the story of Barack's mother's second husband, the story of Kenya, the history of colonialism both in Kenya as well as in India, D'Souza's birthplace.
So many of the poorer countries on this planet were looted and polluted by the likes of the United States of America. These countries stole the natural resources of their host countries, took them home to make things with, then sold back to the suffering natives of the country from which the raw materials were stolen.
At least that's how Barack Obama sees the world and it's why he stopped all drilling in America but gave Brazil and Mexico money so that THEY could drill in their country.
Actually it's the reason why Obama does a lot of things and yes, it's not only very wrong, it's very scary.
Cause if this guy wins this upcoming election this country will be no more. Oh America will exist but who knows who will be govern us. If Barack has his way, we won't be governing ourselves.
D'Souza convincingly leads us through the many strange actions by Obama, and how it all reverts back to President Obama's bitterness over a father who was taken away from him so young and a father he adored.
Said father a bigamist and dead from an auto accident that occurred when he was drinking and driving.
But I digress about Obama's heroes.
There was one very, very intriguing revelation during this movie (well there were many such revelations but this one really woke me up) and during the entire viewing a horrific series of thoughts formed to fruition in my musing mind.
First, it was revealed that President Obama's stepfather, Lolo Sotero once had an argument with Obama's mother. He shouted, to the effect, that it was "YOUR" people (meaning Americans) who caused the problems in Indonesia.
Stanley Ann screamed in return that they were not "MY" people.
So Obama's mother didn't consider America her country or fellow American's her people?
Lord how on earth, in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, did this man get elected president of my country?
As I watched a thought kept growing in my mind. So okay, Obama's president, he's sending money to Brazil and Mexico so they can drill but shuts down our drilling in this country. So okay he continually and without compunction drives up the national debt so as to bankrupt this country and as part of a mission to destroy its power. So okay, Obama is going to reduce our nuclear missile stock that such an action would weaken us militarily.
WHERE THE HELL IS THE CONGRESS????
I thought, silly me, that we had some sort of system of power checking going on in this country and yet here we have one guy single-handedly destroying the country.
I thought this was all handled by our three branches of government.
But of course there is a political party supporting this guy and folks, if we ever get through this no Democrat should ever be elected dog catcher again.
For it was the Democrats who let this horrible stuff happen. The only thing the Democrats stopped Obama from doing was trying that Khalid guy in New York and only then because NY mobster-senator Chuck U. Schumer didn't want his state's tourism disrupted.
We tried to get rid of that oppressive Obamacare via yet another branch of government that failed us, the Supreme Court.
Said court not making a ruling at all on what, to my non-lawyer eyes, is clearly illegal. Another branch of government fails to provide a "check" or a "balance" to runaway government.
Not only did the movie end leaving me scared and a bit depressed, I left knowing that it wasn't just Obama that allowed so much to change to this country's detriment. I left with the sinking feeling that our country's vaunted separation of powers failed us when we needed it most.
There are two solutions and both of them have to happen simultaneously. First, voters have to throw this guy out of office, "let him go" to quote Clint Eastwood. Second, the opposition party, in this case the Republicans, have got to stop with their sniffing elitism scolding us for wanting a sensible immigration system (ole Jeb Bush), demanding that we not speak bad about the President (Bill Kristol), refusing to even mention the president's middle name (John McCain).
These GOP Blue Blood elites do like their jobs. I don't for one minute believe none of them knew that Dodd and Frank were playing socialism by giving free houses to Crystal and her part-time pimp.
We've got to get those who think being elected gives them the right to tell us how to live thrown out of office.
In short, we've not only got to throw Obama out, we've got to throw as many Democrats as possible out of there and we've got to make the Republicans act like they care about this country more than their next cocktail party invite.
The best way to save this country for now is through the ballot box. We've got one chance to get it straight.
The content is great, but the camera work is crap. It's an hour and a half of continual six second screen changes, interspersed with shaky camera shots. I felt sea sick for over a day after watching it.
Good job...Who is Crystal?
by giving free houses to Crystal and her part-time pimp.
My wife and I went to see 2016 at 4pm on Labor day afternoon. The theater was packed, with many families in attendance.
If you care about the future of America, go see this movie. I already knew 99% of what was portrayed, but we went to support the film and hopefully contribute to keeping it at the box office for another month.
I respect your assessment, and your description is not far off.
But I liked the camera work myself.
The movie was OK. It didn't contain anything I didn't know; but it was eye-opening for my wife. I think D'Souza hammered the "anti-colonialism" angle too much. I would have liked to have heard more about his communist mentors. He barely mentioned Professor Derrick Bell, and could have gone into more depth about "black liberation theology" from Rev. Wright.
I think he’s talking about the skinny kid and his gf who obliterated ACORN with cheesy costumes and a 30 dollar camera they got off ebay. :-)
Very interesting. I don't want to hijack the thread; but I went Sunday and also almost got sick watching the movie.
Wasn't sure why. Maybe the camera work had something to do with it?
I thought it was just because I was so sickened seeing what fools the voters were in 2008.
Heh....Crystal is a prostitute but I left that part out. But she has a pimp so.......
Point is, anybody not financially stable enough to pay a monthly mortgage.
I haven’t seen the movie yet...thanks for the review.
When I saw the reference to “Crystal and her part-time pimp” (not that it was in the movie but the point was being made about anybody and everybody getting a housing loan), I thought it might be Crystal Mangum of Duke LaCrosse players fake-rape-charge fame.
She would represent a type of person that would illustrate the point.
Great job in describing the movie....my daughter also mentioned how simply amazing it is to be getting away with what he’s doing...where are the checks and balances?
So in this sense a person could surmise that some of these senarios could not possibly be true...especially here in America. Yet sadly this is exactly what is happening. I’ve been railing against obama even before he was elected..however it was an eye-opening event for my daughter.
To me, there was one point in the movie about 2/3s through that it seemed to purposefully try to get you physically agitated through sights and sounds.
Sounds like how Michael Bay directs a movie. Fast shot to the next fast shot. Also how Steve Harris does the Iron Maiden live DVDs. Fast shot after fast shot, and too often the camera doesn’t linger on one guitar player during a solo. Leaves people sort of wanting more, which may be the case with this documentary.
Just emailed your blog to my daughter...! Thanks.

No, he’s had plenty of help from the Democrat party (especially that corrupt bastard Harry Reid), and the hyper-partisan media hacks who have provided cover.
Hubby, his brother and I went yesterday to see the movie, in eastern Ohio. I was disappointed to see less than a dozen people there after hearing of all the packed theaters. Could be the lack of a decent newspaper locally. Nobody knew it was playing. Nothing new in it to me, but the guys liked the movie. Hubby refuses to go to the movies, but relented because it is a documentary. He hates fantasy. like he said though, “the people who need to see it, won’t”.
I’ll never forgive John Roberts, the traitor, for joining with Obama and the Rats and upholding unConstitutional Obamacare. He failed his country when it needed him most. He is a coward and perhaps a self-serving one.
Sadly, it was not just the Dims, but all of us, fishtalk. All of us who sat on our behinds and our wallets ignoring the fiscal errors of W and moral errors of Billy-Jeff because times were good and the Day of Reckoning could barely be seen on the horizon. All of us who have allowed our schools to ignore the rich, good, and exceptional history of this country and focus on perceived flaws and the Lib agenda instead. All of us who allowed our representatives to keep kicking the can down the road until the road became filled with pot holes and ends at the precipice of a cliff. Like Pogo, we have met the enemy, and he is us. Thank heavens for the Tea Party and a few leaders like Ryan and Coburn and Demint and Palin and Walker and Inhofe and the few other voices of sanity crying in the wilderness. We better listen and act now. Time to start crawling over broken glass again...
It worked on me.
But then again my agitation started when unvetted Obama was permitted by the MSM to slip through as the RAT candidate in 2008.
