’2016: Obama’s America’ Movie Is Disturbingly Necessary
CBS Chicago ^ | 17 August 2012 | Scot Paulsen

Posted on 09/12/2012 8:18:57 AM PDT by Vigilanteman

This past week, “2016: The Movie” about President Barack Obama opened in the Chicago area, and I chose to get more of an education about Obama by seeing the movie. After the inundation of canned hype for the movie on conservative talk shows across the Chicago radio dial that sounded more like commercials than honest endorsements of the movie, I was skeptical of what I was going to see.

While some talk show hosts sounded like they were genuinely impressed with the documentary and honestly endorsing the film, there were those who were obviously reading a commercial script which was not coming across as sincere to the regular listener – at least not to this often-skeptical listener. Perhaps, in future promotions of the film, it would be wise to have pre-recorded commercials done by the professional commercial-makers rather than having the likes of Mark Levin and Sean Hannity doing script after script to promote the movie. After all, the listeners aren’t stupid and resent any attempt at being conned. After many reads by the talk show hosts, the readings of the commercial script were no more enthusiastic than another Life-Lock commercial read – another commercial that ought to be professionally done.

Yet, I’m glad I saw the hyped-film because it was more informative than I had thought it would be and included less propaganda than I had predicted. If anything, it was nearly too informative as there was an enormous amount of information condensed into the nearly one-hour-and-a-half documentary. Fact after fact is put forth which shows that President Obama definitely has many skeletons in the closet that have not been released prior to the nation’s trust in him with the Oval Office.

To watch this movie and realize – or simply be reminded of – all that is unknown about President Obama is of concern. Much of the information has been ignored by the American media totally. When appropriately reminded as to what is still unknown about Obama to date, one has to ask: How can any logical-thinking person give a damn about Romney’s taxes while not asking any questions regarding our current President’s past? The man influences the entire globe, but liberal Americans want to know how much Mitt Romney paid in taxes in the past rather than learn about the man who they have entrusted with the country. Unbelievable.

The movie undeniably links Obama to persons of suspicious-interest due to their past actions and statements, such as former radical activist and Chicago educator Bill Ayers. While the media and blinded-liberals cast such facts aside, the movie does not. No, this portion of the movie is not propaganda – it is the display of factual information about relationships between people that cannot be denied. Yet, the “left” does deny the facts that are right in front of them. Quite disturbing is the talk of the United States economy in the film. The current national debt which has increased two-fold during Obama’s presidency and the horrendous economy is suggested to be part of the plan to strip the nation of democracy – reasonable cause to make citizens totally dependent on the government. The “left” is aghast at this suggestion of the current economy. They actually believe that Obama is unintelligent enough to let this economy just happen. Ironically, it’s many of the people on the “right” who know Obama’s not stupid, and much of what has happened to the United States in the past four years is part of Obama’s plan.

How could one so-highly educated and intelligent as Obama not know what he was doing when he incurred such debt? I left the movie thinking more strongly than I had in the past that the current debt and this economy was part of Obama’s plan all along. Increasingly making Americans dependent on the government is the plan. What’s more, he knew his blind followers would believe it was not the plan and, of course, was all Bush’s fault. He must be laughing at his blind followers all the way to the “new America” they’re allowing him to create. My belief is that Obama continues to prey on his die-hard followers’ stupidity to accomplish his personal goals for America.

The most disturbing part of the film to me was the interview with President Obama’s half-brother George Obama from Nairobi, Kenya. How can Obama claim to want to help people when he has done absolutely nothing for his own family? It makes me wonder if he really cares about anybody if he can’t find it in his heart to help his own family.

As the closing credits started to role upward across the screen, the audience applauded. Me, I just walked out – reasonably upset.

Those who have already decided to vote for Obama will probably not even see the movie. It’s sad but they probably don’t want to know the truth when it is laid out so clearly for them in this documentary. The independents who are still deciding who they are going to vote for ought to see this film. I’m quite confident that any undecided voter who sees this film will know who to vote for after viewing this documentary. If you know you’re not going to support the “left” in this coming election, see the film out of interest if you like. But, fair warning, it’s disturbing – and quite frightening – to say the least.

I'm betting this link will be taken down within the next 72 hours or so even though it has been up most of a month. Recent events in the middle east just make it too prophetic.

Before you think "Gee, a random act of journalism by a CBS employee!" keep in mind that this is only a part-time job by a local CBS employee who teaches at a community college in the Chicago area.

And, even with its mandatory random denunciations of right wing talk radio, they posted it in an editorial section with a GOP elephant logo on the mast.

Have you ever seen jackass logos on your typical Obama worshiping editorial whether or not it is disguised as a news story?

I’m going to see it this weekend...can’t wait! I am excited to see it playing in our little town in Ohio. A gentleman in our right-to-life group has seen it and highly recommended it.

I've seen the movie twice and I knew it was prophetic - just didn't think the prophecy would unfold while the movie was still playing in theaters.

This is a MUST SEE movie. Nails Obama's anti-American mindset.

The answer is simple. The people who blindly follow Obama are not logical-thinking people any more than those who followed Jim Jones to the Koolaide were logical-thinking people.

Obama attacking the film will guarantee full theaters this weekend to see it.

I made note of a quote by D’Souza (Townhall.com) in response to the offal we know as Bill Maher, when his movie “Religiosity” (?) hit the theaters—it’s very appropriate concerning Bath-House Barry, as well;

“Ultimately he (Maher) is an intellectual coward who relies on the argumentum ad ignorantium: the argument that RELIES on the ignorance of the audience.”

Interesting comment at the '2016' website...

'LIKE if you want to see 2016 on a major network before this election!'

First time I have seen or heard of plants to get it on television...

What I find interesting, is that this movie has been out for 9 weeks and is still in the top 10 at #9. The only other film that is close, is The Dark Knight, which has been out for 8 weeks and it at #10.

This little movie isn't fading quickly, which I assume, is tweaking the 0bama camp to no end.

I saw 2016 two weeks ago with my wife. I pray it gets shown on prominent TV/cable channels (like Fox, DOC, History channels) before the November election.

I saw the movie last week. Actually there was little in it I didn't already know, but then I'm a political junkie. The whole thing was well done, and I thought it was a great documentary. Everyone should see it, even those who think Obummer walks on water.

To summarize this guy's take in a single sentence: The demagogue is one who preaches doctrines he knows to be untrue to men he knows to be idiots.

And of the top 10 highest-grossing movies on Monday, it was far and away the highest grossing per screen average. One thing’s for sure, as long as it keeps making money for the theaters, they’re going to keep it around.

I do have a confession to make, however. I saw the movie and keep nodding off. I don’t know if it was that I’d already read so much about various scenes in it before attending, or that I knew most of the Ayres/Rev. Wright/etc., stuff, or what, but I might as well have not spent the money for what I got out of it.

Every time Obama’s sonorous voice began, I would begin to drift off. Maybe that’s a good thing? I’m curious if anyone else has had this experience. Maybe I was just too tired to go to a movie that night?

On the other hand, the person with me who was less informed, both about the movie itself, and about Obama generally, claimed to like it.

Yes, but it’s only been in wide release since Aug 24th, or 18 days. The real test is how fast it winds down from here on.

Agree. It was also unnecessarily long. I saw it two weeks ago.

However, toward the end was the reason for watching it.

D’Souza was being interviewed harshly and the question was along the line of how could he know he was right?

D’Souza replied that his was the only model that fit Obama’s past actions. One prediction was Obama’s support for a caliphate from Morocco to Iran, with no Israel.

Yesterday's events and Obama’s snub of Netanyahu a couple days ago are consistent with his model, a muslim confederation of terror and oil wealth to counter, if not destroy the US.
