    When I was a small child, one of the most dramatic and effective business boycotts in the history of America occurred. This, of course, was the Montgomery bus boycott. By refusing to ride the bus, blacks who were being discriminated against were able to terminate many discriminatory practices not only in Alabama, but throughout the South. The white-owned businesses were clearly being unfair, and the public transportation system was no better. The actions taken were appropriate and in many cases heroic. The power of the purse, particularly in a capitalistic society, is mighty, and business boycotts are a potent tool...

    Its friends in the media would have us think that Dinesh D’ Souza’s latest cinematic work, America: Imagine a World Without Her, is worth seeing because of the effectiveness with which D’ Souza demolishes the standard leftist charges leveled against the United States. I come away from this film with a dramatically different response. While D’ Souza is to be commended for establishing, by way of quite a few tidbits that promise to be news to most viewers, America hardly has a monopoly on “oppression,” what he gives with one hand D’ Souza takes with the other: D’ Souza not...

    Back in 2010, and amid some of the worst economic times of Barack Obama’s failed presidency, I lunched with an entrepreneur whose signage business was booming both domestically and globally. I asked this person how he thrived despite all the political barriers to growth, and he said “I’m way too smart for Obama, and I’ll always work around him.” The entrepreneur’s confident response came to mind as I watched Dinesh D’Souza’s latest documentary, America: Imagine the World Without Her. D’Souza properly loves the U.S., as does this writer, but his documentaries (the other was 2016: Obama’s America, released to much...

    In 2008, I was working at a job in the Virginia suburbs of the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area–an international community if there ever was one. For the job, employees at my work site were all required to be U.S. citizens in order to be hired.  Nonetheless, we had a work unit comprised of many foreign-born and second-generation “hyphenated” Americans; many Pakistanis, a few Puerto Ricans, several fairly recent arrivals from Africa, a couple of Asians, even some whites mixed in there, you name it. Being a federal contract situation, the company I was working for at the time, of course,...

    My wife and I are avid movie attendees — dinner and a movie every Friday for more than 50 years. This past Fourth of July was no exception. In the movie guide that day, the PG listed “America: Imagine the World Without Her” (not reviewed). This seemed to be the perfect movie for us, so off we went to the Galleria theater. It started out pretty well, and then George Washington was shot by a sniper and the colonies supposedly lost the American Revolution. That is where the premise of the title ends and the growth of America was described....

    As Dave Weigel reports in a tart blog post today, conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza recently managed to pull off an impressive marketing feat. D’Souza and his lawyers claimed that despite the hit status of his new book and movie, “America,” Google was deliberately downgrading the project in its search results and Costco had removed the book from shelves for politically motivated reasons. The result? Google bumped “America” up in the rankings and Costco restocked the book. Of course, as Weigel explains, “D’Souza’s book, like his movie [which made $2.75 million in its first weekend], is no runaway hit....

    Wholesale retailer Costco announced Tuesday evening that they have reversed a decision to remove conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza’s bestselling book from stores, following an outcry from thousands of angry customers. “Costco is not a book store.

Almost 3,000 audience reviewers rank the movie at 4.5/5 stars whereas a handful of professional critics give it a 12/100 score. Amazing the descrepancy until you read the critic's reviews. Clearly, we're dealing with a liberal leftest assessment of the material in the movie not...

    Dinesh D’Souza faces more than a year in prison for giving away his money. Guilt lies with the law and not the lawbreaker here. The conservative author pled guilty to violating campaign finance laws, which is another way of saying he opened up a lemonade stand without a license or ripped the tag off a mattress. The case stems from D’Souza’s 2012 donations through intermediaries to a friend’s senatorial campaign. Congress, made up of incumbents, has placed restrictions of dubious constitutionality on the amount individuals can legally donate to candidates. They haven’t, tellingly, placed any such limits on what they...

    You can see a video of Senator Ted Cruz on the abuse of power from Obama by clicking on the "Enza Ferreri Blog" link above. What's going on in the - we believed free - world? If you look around you, you see more and more people forbidden to enter a country, put in jail or out of business just for expressing their opinion. I agree that nobody should publicly insult individuals or groups with no good reason, but there's a fine line between exposing a wrong-doing and offending the wrong-doer. In Britain, the new counterjihad party Liberty GB's Radio...
  • Should America's Greatest Patriot, Dinesh D'Souza, Apply For Refugee Status in India?

    01/29/2014 7:09:33 AM PST · by ComtedeMaistre · 17 replies
    India is the world's largest democracy, and has a population of 1.2 billion. America is the world's oldest democracy. Indian-born Dinesh D'Souza immigrated to America in 1978, and he has written several books saying that America has more freedom than any other country in the world. D'Souza many be right in saying that the America which he found in 1978 was the world's most free nation. But the America that Dinesh found in 1978 no longer exists, except in the history books. The problem that America faces is much bigger than the policies of the Obama administration. Conservatives betrayed America...

    American Thinker ^ | 1/29/2014 | Richard Butrick
    Ridiculed.  Lampooned.  Denigrated.  That was the reaction that Dinesh D'Souza got upon launching his thesis about President Obama's mindset in his 2010 Forbes article, "How Obama Thinks." He argued in effect that president Obama's mindset was locked and loaded with the blame-colonialism doctrine that is still alive and well in post-colonial Asia and Africa.  The critical reaction came from political analysts from both sides of the political aisle.  For example, Daniel Larison of The American Conservative claimed that D'Souza "has authored what may possibly be the most ridiculous piece of Obama analysis yet." Andrew Ferguson of The Weekly Standard claimed...

    ”Schindler’s List” producer Gerald Molen was shaken by last week’s indictment of colleague, conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza, and he said it has caused him to think twice about how he views the government. Molen helped produce D’Souza’s film “2016: Obama’s America” and he is currently working with him on the follow-up project, “America,” scheduled for a Fourth of July release. In an interview with Newsmax, Molen made some chilling comments. Read the exchange from Newsmax: “I’m a little bit taken aback by the whole thing because he’s such a great American,” Molen said of D’Souza on Newmax TV’s...

    In this brand-new trailer for “America,” filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza quotes classical political theorist Edmund Burke, saying that “true patriotism” means loving your country not because it’s yours, but because “it’s good.” D’Souza adds that his driving force behind “America” is taking on the progressive, liberal point of view that the U.S. is based on theft and plunder and then debunking that perspective. “I want to take this progressive, leftist critique head on,” D’Souza adds. The movie will include re-creations of some of the major events in American history, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “America” is set to release around July...

    Gerald Molen, the producer of Dinesh D’Souza’s documentary film “2016: Obama’s America,” says he never feared his government before he learned that D’Souza is under federal investigation for election fraud. […] “I’m a little bit taken aback by the whole thing because he’s such a great American,” Molen said of D’Souza on Newmax TV’s “Steve Malzberg Show.” The conservative writer and commentator understands the process in America and how it works, Molen said. […] Asked by Malzberg if he ever felt threatened or had any feelings they should not have been making the film, Molen answered, “No. This is America....

    The indictment of a major critic of the president has elicited little more than yawns from the media.This is a case where you don’t even have to connect the dots. Just read a little history: After news broke Thursday that federal prosecutors had charged conservative commentator, author, film-maker and professional Obama-basher Dinesh D’Souza with violating campaign finance laws, Walter Olson at the Overlawyered blog posted on the relatively mild civil sanction meted out to a “big-league trial lawyer” who’d done pretty much the same thing D’Souza is accused of. D’Souza has been indicted for allegedly paying $20,000 to reimburse...

    On Friday, conservative scholar Dinesh D’Souza pleaded not guilty to charges that he violated campaign finance laws. The filmmaker behind the anti-Obama documentary “2016: Obama’s America” was released on $500,000 bond, which some — even in the legal community — argue was excessive. We looked into these claims and uncovered a number of violent and disturbing offenses that resulted in bail amounts less than D’Souza was required to put up. While it’s not a comprehensive list by any means, here are nine cases where violent suspects had to put up less for bail than D’Souza: In 2007, a Chicago judge...

    A few random news items from around the country: •Dinesh D’Souza, a prominent conservative filmmaker, was indicted for allegedly violating federal campaign-finance laws. The indictment was “the result of a routine review by the FBI of campaign filings with the FEC by various candidates after the 2012 election for United States senator in New York,” said a spokesman for the US Attorney’s Office. Routine. A Google search for “liberal filmmaker indicted” did not turn up any liberal filmmakers who have been indicted. •James O’Keefe, a conservative maker of provocative films, said the New York State Department of Labor had taken...
