Indicted Director DíSouza Speaks Out: The Film '2016' Does Seem to Have Gotten Under Obamaís Skin
Gateway Pundit ^ | 01/31/2014 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 02/01/2014 10:09:05 AM PST by lasereye

Dinesh D’Souza was on with Sean Hannity tonight in his first interview since he was indicted on federal charges of violating campaign finance laws by using straw donors to funnel money to a U.S. Senate candidate.

Dinesh said it’s been quite a week” since the politically charged indictment.

Dinesh wouldn’t talk about the case but did say this:

“Well, I will say that the film “2016″ was a film that does seem to have gotten under President Obama’s skin. And the reason for this is it wasn’t just a critique of Obamacare or policies but I, in a sense, went into Obama’s world and also into Obama’s mind. There I was at the Obama family homestead in Kenya. I interviewed his brother. And, of course, we advanced a thesis that here is a traumatized and somewhat of a messed up guy who is haunted by the dreams of his father, the topic of his own autobiography. There was a rant against the film on Obama’s own website which is BarackObama.com. So, we know the film rattled him. We know the film upset him. And whether this is a kind of payback remains to be seen.“

Weird. Questionable legal strategy to use a federal indictment to promote a movie. Seems like just the kind of thing to piss off prosecutors and a judge and ensure more zealous prosecution.

” violating campaign finance laws by using straw donors to funnel money to a U.S. Senate candidate.”

Kind of like Obama did in 2008 but nobody was interested in investigating.

You’re joking, right?

The guy is targeted for persecution by the thuggish President of the United States, and you have an issue with him pointing out that it’s because of his movie?

The prosecutor is a Third World Thug who has been tasked with getting back at a co-ethnic who is a “traitor” to the cause of all angry non-whites who have come to America in the last 50 years: gettin’ back at whitey.

$500,000 bail for a violation that most Democrats think is standard procedure?

And you think there’s something to this prosecution that has to do with law enforcement?

The Obama campaign disabled the credit card identity verification in both 2008 and 2012. Enabling illegal donations - either amounts exceeding the legal maximum or foreign donations - is the only plausible explanation.

Do we have the rule of law in the United States when this man is indicted for donating a few thousand more in violation of the law, but nothing is said about the mysterious donations to the Obama campaign or the fact that democrats provide tens of millions (even hundreds for Solyndra) in government loans in return for tens of thousands in campaign donations?

The corruption in D.C. is a stench that chokes us all. Both parties are hopelessly corrupt and now the complexity of campaign finance laws, combined with the loss of ethical government, has created a situation where the government can target enemies using complex laws even as the loopholes allow for the same activity (pay to play).

The defense of this case may be interesting because they know this. In fact, I hope this becomes the basis for a new documentary on crony capitalism, Michael Moore style.

You would never run out of material with green energy, the housing project pushed by Obama for his now incarcerated friend in Chicago, and the fact that GE pays no taxes. I would throw the GOPe overboard as well. Make something where it is clear to the sheeple that the best investments one can make in America are donations to politicians.

How about a segment on Franklin Raines, Barney Frank, and Jamie Gorelick and friends - so many Clintonista’s cooking the books for 100 million in bonuses that costs the taxpayers trillions. Madoff and Enron were child’s play in comparison. How about the community bank in Chicago that was a who’s who of progressive power brokers and envirofascists?

The material is as endless as the corruption.

2016 made $33 million.

His next film,”America” will premiere July 4th and Dinesh got help from some real biggies on it.

If you REALLY are mad about this then you should be sure to see it and bring all your skeptical friends.

Push this next one OVER $33 million and SEND A MESSAGE.

In any case, seems like it would be a worthy goal...

Preet Bharara

Perhaps a big Multicultarlist liberal like yourself could explain why the son of Sikh is going after a Catholic Goan (horrors).

Isn't there a thread on FR, how @ least 10 ppl. whom are charged w/ far more serious crimes,
have gotten out on far less bail, this is nothing more than a ['37 Stalinist] Soviet Show trial,
the Marxist Media is superb @ that..but not reporting the facts about the (Official) Washington
Establishment corruption and the destruction of the US Constitution & Bill of Rights.

“Stalinist Show Trial”

That pretty much describes it

LOL.

You presume too much.

That same Preet Bharara was cheered by some here when he went after an Indian diplomat in NY recently.

Your comment fixates on “co-ethnic” animosity, and others insist there’s “co-ethnic” collusion. Ask me and I’ll say there are serious mental issues with these accusers.

This administration is a fascist organization. It uses the power of the government against its political enemies. This is an impeachable offense.

Oh, got it, so in your world non-whites promoted to high positions based on their ethnicity have no prejudices or lingering animosities, they are principled and noble Public Servants who administer the law without regard to race, creed, religion, sexual deviancy or any other personal characteristics that define the modern Democratic party.

And if you believe that, you’re the one with mental issues.
