    It seems that Dinesh D’Souza’s problem is that his mindset is not up to date. He believes in such antiquarian notions as freedom of speech and worst of all he admires the U.S. Founding Fathers. The man is obviously sick and in need of “therapeutic counseling.” This according Judge Richard M. Berman of Federal District Court in Manhattan who sentenced D’Souza, the conservative author and filmmaker of documentaries highly critical of President Obama. He was sentenced to five years probation and eight months in a “community confinement center” where he would be required to “undergo” therapeutic counseling. As the judge...

He says very clearly that four people who donate money (payment of consideration) will be selected (element of chance) to be flown in to have dinner with him, at his expense (prize).

    Conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza spoke out tonight about his five-year probation and eight-month sentence to a community confinement center on Fox News. D’Souza told Megyn Kelly, “My faith in an independent judiciary is affirmed.” D’Souza was indicted in January for campaign finance, and pled guilty in May. D’Souza had suggested on multiple occasions that he was targeted for his criticisms of President Obama, a charge prosecutors strongly denied. D’Souza repeatedly said in his interview tonight that there’s been an “all-out attempt to put me away,” and while he didn’t directly say it was the Obama administration, he did note there’s...

    In a decision likely to be framed by conservative media as a vindictive abuse of power, filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza was sentenced Tuesday to eight months in a confinement center and five years probation after pleading in May that he was guilty of violating campaign finance laws. D'Souza's movies, America this year and two years earlier, 2016: Obama's America, are critical of the left — and in the case of the first one, President Barack Obama — and they are among the most successful political documentaries in history. D'Souza was indicted in January after he promised his then-fiancee and his former...

In a reply sentencing memo submitted to the Court on behalf of D'Souza last week, his counsel argues federal prosecutors excluded and misrepresented the facts of “similar” cases in the Government's sentencing proposal to Judge Berman, leaving out crucial facts key to fair and equal sentencing for D’Souza compared to...

    On September 23, Dinesh D’Souza will appear before a federal judge in Manhattan to learn whether he will do jail time for violating campaign-finance law. (He pleaded guilty earlier this year to charges of funneling $20,000 to a friend’s Senate campaign via straw donors.) It will be the latest turn in a remarkable life that has embodied—perhaps more than any other—the passions and commitments of the modern conservative movement. D’Souza leapt to prominence during his student days as editor of The Dartmouth Review, then emerging as a first-read for pro-Reagan provocation. Those were heady times for the youth corps of...

Long. He asked two friends and their wives to donate  the maximum to Long's campaign - $20,000 in all - and then reimbursed them, thus exceeding the $5,000 limit on donations per election cycle.

    The conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza has asked a federal judge to sentence him to probation and community service after pleading guilty to a campaign finance law violation. In a Wednesday court filing, D'Souza's lawyers said their client will present himself as a "disgraced and humiliated man" who acted out of character by having two "straw donors" donate $10,000 each to his friend Wendy Long's unsuccessful 2012 U.S. Senate campaign in New York, and then reimbursing them. The sentencing recommendation includes an unusual statement from D'Souza, 53, to U.S. District Judge Richard Berman in Manhattan, who will impose sentence...

    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.

    America: Imagine the World Without Her is the newest propaganda hit piece from confessed criminal and Right-wing operative Dinesh D’Souza. During my weekly visit to the movies, I saw Deliver Us From Evil. It was a movie with great potential (the connection to PTSD and the “demons” that our veterans carry home with them from war could have been more thoroughly developed) that needed a thorough rewrite and editing. I am a sucker for movies about the supernatural and occult. Therefore, I felt obligated to see Deliver Us From Evil. Dinesh D’Souza’s new “documentary” “America” was also playing at the...

Dyson challenged him on slavery, arguing it was worse (to a degree) when America did it because there was actually religious justification being trotted out. D’Souza pointed out there were free...

    In contrast to "America"'s promotional campaign, the movie is very tightly organized. It begins with an attention-grabber, asking the question, What would the world be like if we had lost the War for Independence? After presenting heart-warming patriotic vignettes, D'Souza then asks the jarring question, But what if what we believe about America is false? He then presents five standard Left wing criticisms of America, portraying America as essentially unjust, founded on acts of pure evil and conquest. He listens quietly and politely as Left Wing 'luminaries,' including Ward Churchill, Elizabeth Warren and Noam Chomsky, present their case. He then...

He lists five “indictments” that Native American activists, Mexican-American academics, African-American leaders, leftist historians and the Occupy Movement have sold the American public – that we stole Indian land, Mexican land, African slaves,...

    At one level, his message in America: Imagine a World Without Her is deeply pessimistic: “The American dream is shrinking because some of our leaders want it to shrink. Decline, in other words, has become a policy objective. And if this decline continues at the current pace, America as we know it will cease to exist. In effect, we will have committed national suicide.” But most people will leave the theater with a more optimistic conclusion: Much of the criticism of America taught in the nation’s schools is easily refuted, America is worth saving, and we have the tools to...

Part of the strength of the film is that it uses interviews with leading intellectuals on the Left, including Noam Chomsky, Ward Churchill, Michael Eric Dyson and Alan Dershowitz.

    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.

    Dan from Squirrel Hill's Blog Here are quotes from four legal experts saying Obama’s arrest of Dinesh D’Souza was politically motivated In August 2012, Dinesh D’Souza released 2016: Obama’s America, a movie that was critical of Obama.In January 2014, D’Souza was arrested for violating campaign finance laws. Two days ago, he pled guilty. However, even though Obama himself had violated campaign finance laws on two different occasions (see here and here), Obama never had himself arrested.Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz said of D’Souza’s arrest:“This is clearly a case of selective prosecution for one of the most common things done during...

    NEW YORK – “Schindler’s List” producer Gerald Molen, who is working on a new film with conservative author Dinesh D’Souza, says he will be watching for a federal court to deliver justice when a sentencing hearing is held in the fall on D’Souza’s violation of campaign laws. D’Souza on Tuesday pleaded guilty to one part of a federal indictment in a plea bargain that had prosecutors give up on the worst counts. He will be sentenced in September. There have been claims the case was a politically charged prosecution from the outset. Molen said he will be among those watching...

    Author and conservative filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza plead guilty this morning to federal charges accusing him of violating campaign finance laws and making false statements. D'Souza admitted in front of the U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, that he did in fact ask two people to make contributions in their name and later reimbursed them, knowing it was not proper under the law. Judge Richard Berman accepted his guilty plea and set a sentencing date for September 23, 2014. The government argued attorneys would be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt the defendant, D'Souza, is guilty. "Guilty your...

    Evils such as Islam cannot be called evil because to do so is considered "racist" and worse. Here's a video of an interview with Dineh D'Souza, who engages in what Attorney General Holder did not mean when he called for an "honest discussion" of Race or anything else. Mr. D'Sousa well knows the dangers of political correctness. Please watch at least this video. [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhAOLg0spIE] Video linkBack in 2012, I posted an article titled Political Correctness is a Communicable Disease. Islam is protected from legitimate criticism -- increasingly -- by a shield of political correctness. So are President Obama's malignant policies. To take issue substantively with either is "racist." The religion of...

    BUNKERVILLE, Nevada—Cliven Bundy’s ranch, recently the site of a tense stand-off that started over two weeks ago between the federal government and the Bundy family, had morphed into a good old-fashioned family picnic complete with live country music, hamburgers, and hotdogs Friday. A week after the Bureau of Land Management’s armed force left Bunkerville, Bundy and his supporters continue to make the family’s case relating to Bundy’s right to graze his cattle on public land his family has been on for many years. :snip: D’Souza, who is coming under fire from the Holder Justice Department himself, added, “I think what...

    If you suspect that politics might have played a role in the Justice Department bringing charges against conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza, consider the financial support to Barack Obama from a key DOJ lawyer in the U.S. Attorney’s office that filed the charges. Each U.S. Attorney’s office has a lone District Election Officer (“DEO”). The DEO is the singular point person in each U.S. Attorney office for any matter related to an election or campaign finance. The U.S. Attorney’s office in the Southern District of New York is the office which brought the campaign finance charges against D’Souza. David Kennedy is...

    Dinesh D’Souza, the conservative commentator and filmmaker who was indicted last month on charges of campaign finance fraud spoke out for the first time about his legal troubles on Fox’s Hannity Friday night. His defenders have spent the last few weeks wondering aloud whether D’Souza’s indictment was some kind of retribution from the Obama Administration for his film, 2016: Obama’s America, but now it was his turn. “Now, remember,” Hannity said before introducing D’Souza, “his indictment comes after the IRS harassed conservative groups last year and after the disgraced tax agency recently placed extra scrutiny on a group of conservatives...

    Mr. Dershowitz thinks the federal campaign fraud charges against the conservative filmmaker and author are an example of “selective prosecution.” Weighing in on the case Friday in an interview with Law Blog, Mr. Dershowitz was withering in his opinion of the Manhattan U.S. attorney office’s prosecution of Mr. D’Souza, who pleaded not guilty last week to making illegal campaign contributions to a Republican U.S. Senate candidate in 2012. “The idea of charging him with a felony for this doesn’t sound like a proper exercise of prosecutorial discretion,” Mr. Dershowitz said. “I can’t help but think that [D'Souza's] politics have something...

    Conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza’s indictment for alleged campaign finance violations in the 2012 U.S. Senate race in New York is coming under scrutiny by a team of four Republican senators questioning whether the prosecution is politically motivated. D’souza was indicted in late January for election fraud for allegedly using straw donors to contribute $20,000 to the losing New York U.S. Senate campaign of his friend, Wendy Long. Facing a maximum of two years in prison, D’Souza pled not guilty and made $500,000 bail. “I’m going to proceed with my work and my ideas and the film will be unimpeded by...
