“2016: Obama’s America” was one of the most talked about movies of the summer in 2012. Directed by Dinesh D’Souza, an outspoken critic of President Obama, it explored the fundamental idea, “If Barack Obama wins a second term, where will we be in 2016?” Dinesh D’Souza probably never imagined that he would be indicted by a grand jury for giving “too much money” to a U.S. Senate candidate in 2012. In what amounts to nothing but trumped up charges, it stands to reason that this is direct targeting by the Obama Administration. Conservatives from all across the country, in any arena, need to heed the warning that Obama is after them. No one is safe.
Dinesh D’Souza is a well known author as well, having written the books Illiberal Education, What’s So Great About America, The End of Racism, and The Roots of Obama’s Rage, which “2016: Obama’s America” was based on, and many others. So it is no coincidence that the Obama Administration, using every available weapon at their disposal, would single out D’Souza. He had a bulls-eye on his back. All conservative Americans do. If the DOJ can indict Dinesh D’Souza for campaign finance “violations,” no one is safe.
Conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza, whose documentary 2016: Obama’s America took a critical look at President Barack Obama and was a surprise hit in 2012, will be arrested in New York on Friday for allegedly violating campaign-finance laws, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Insiders say D’Souza has been friends with Long since they attended Dartmouth College together in the early 1980s. According to the indictment, D’Souza donated $20,000 to Long’s campaign by aggregating the money from various people and falsely reporting the source of the funds. But Gerald Molen, a co-producer of 2016, says the charge is politically motivated.
“In America, we have a long tradition of not doing what is commonly done in too many other countries — criminalizing dissent through the selective enforcement of the law,” Molen tells THR.
D’Souza is accused of donating $20,000 to candidate Wendy Long, who was challenging Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. Gillibrand beat Long by 44 percentage points. Long never stood a chance against Gillibrand, and her name was never mentioned in the indictment against D’Souza. The Daily Caller reports “that indictment claims that D’Souza, 52, deceptively used straw donors to donate the funds, and misreported the source of the campaign cash.”
Long only raised $785,000 total for her campaign against Gillibrand. To accuse D’Souza of deceptively using straw donors to donate funds and misreport campaign cash for a candidate that lost by almost 50 percentage points is ludicrous. This is political targeting. Obama’s DOJ had their eyes on D’Souza and decided to take him out. This was a choreographed hit.
In 2012, federal law “limited primary and general election campaign contributions to $2,500 each, for a total of $5,000, from any individual to any one candidate.”
Preet Bharara, an Obama appointee who is the U.S. Attorney for Manhattan, said, “As we have long said, this Office and the FBI take a zero tolerance approach to corruption of the electoral process.”
The Obama Administration says they have a “zero tolerance” approach to corruption of the electoral process is akin to Islamists saying they have a “zero tolerance” for the killing of Jews. Nothing could be further from the truth. In 2008, Obama’s Department of Justice was accused of voter intimidation, when members of the New Black Panther Party were seen threatening voters in Philadelphia. Non-Citizens were caught voting in Ohio in the 2012 Presidential election. In February 2012, 1.8 million dead people were STILL registered to vote.
No, this is sweet justice for the Obama Administration, to categorically take down an outspoken rival. These charges are baseless in the face of obscene corruption by Obama and his fascist minions.
D’Souza first learned he was being investigated in the middle of 2013, several months after 2016 had earned $33 million at the box office and become the second-most-popular political documentary in U.S. history. The film included an interview with Obama’s half-brother, George Obama, who was mildly critical of the president.
Molen says D’Souza is being singled out for “an alleged minor violation” in the same way the IRS reportedly targeted conservative Tea Party groups for retribution. “In light of the recent events and the way the IRS has been used to stifle dissent, this arrest should send shivers down the spines of all freedom-loving Americans,” Molen says.
The timing is everything. D’Souza’s film earned $33 million dollars at the box office, and Obama was the subject of the movie. President Obama is using his office to take out his opponents; those who would dare speak out against him. Free speech is but a myth for conservatives in Obama’s America.
This is Obama’s America that Dinesh D’Souza warned the public about, but the sheeple chose not to heed the warnings. A tyrant and vicious dictator is using his power to wage war against his enemies, and when he is through with America, the landscape might not ever be the same.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
