Dinesh D’Souza defends new movie against CNN shameful spin

This morning Dinesh D’Souza went on CNN to defend his new movie “2016 Obama’s America” and got some interesting questions. One of the questions was based on MAJOR spin by CNN to challenge D’Souza’s claim that Obama wants to put America deeper in debt. Here’s the info graphic CNN put up during the interview to give ‘perspective’ to Obama’s increase of the national debt:

This graphic completely distorts the truth behind Obama’s unprecedented spending. That CNN would even put these numbers together is shameful. Fortunately D’Souza was there to set the record straight. But just for the record, here is Obama’s budget deficits vs Bush’s budget deficits, which backs up what D’Souza says in the interview:

I also loved how D’Souza didn’t accept the premise of the last question which tried to frame his argument that Obama was elected because he was black as ‘shallow’.

    CNN and the rest of the media are but the Naked Emperor’s “tailors.”

    • canscrap

      Just watched the interview and noticed that she was gritting her teeth…. she just couldn’t argue with his points…. darn that Dinesh ……

      IT WAS A GREAT DOCUMENTARY and now I wish they’d make another one about his associates and all their dark pasts.

      • You can’t argue about a movie that has El Presidente as narrator, exposing himself for who he really is. Those figures that CNN threw up were just absurd. Dinesh’s answers were very matter-of-fact in nature and he didn’t have to stammer too much or grope around for the words to say.

        • canscrap

          Also, those figures for BO were for 3 1/2 years only

          • bobemakk

            Obamas entire political career is a living lie.

          • kong1967

            Although not entirely accurate, you can basically say those numbers represent the percentage more money that the current President has borrowed compared to the previous one. No matter how you slice and dice it, Obama has borrowed a lot more money than any other President.

            • PapaLouie

              No, not compared to the previous President, compared to ALL previous Presidents since Andrew Jackson. That was the last time the US debt was completely paid off. We haven’t paid a penny of principle on the debt since 1960 (52 years ago). But you’re right about Obama having borrowed more money than any other President on a per/year basis.

              Reagan’s 186% increase of the debt in 8 years amounted to about 2 trillion dollars. Bush increased the debt by about 5 trillion. Obama’s 50% increase in the debt amounts to about the same 5 trillion in just 3.5 years. At this rate, Obama will increase the debt by more than 10 trillion over 8 years. That’s much more than Reagan and Bush combined over the same 8 year period. So using percentage of debt to compare spending is intentionally misleading. Instead, they should compare deficit spending using inflation adjusted dollars or by percent of GNP.

              • kong1967

                Which is why I said “not completely accurate”. I was giving a general answer without going into detail….but evidently I should have. I didn’t want to dig up the numbers you provided, but thanks for doing the legwork and providing a better description…. 🙂

          • Yeah, 2012 has yet to be completely calculated.

      • 12grace

        Yes, and did you notice how annoyed she looked at the on-set of the interview?

  • wodiej

    I am considering seeing this movie but I just wonder how much of it is information already known by those who follow politics closely.

    • If you give me $10 I’ll find out for you 😉

      • wodiej

        lol…sorry, but Terrenceor has shared it is worth going to.

        • Patriot077

          It really is, wodie. You won’t learn much that is new to you but the presentation is worthwhile. I watched it with an eye toward it’s effect on changing perspectives of the uninformed voter and felt he met that very, very well..

        • smmy33

          While I watched the interview , I thought of Dr Rice’s words…. ” If a nation does not control their finances , they will not control their destiny”.

      • Orangeone

        Where’s your link Scoop? I think many of us would donate so you can watch it over, and over, and over again and help D’Souza rack up the ratings!

        • MaxineCA

          It’s only playing in theaters right now. Here’s the link to find a theater in your area.


          • Orangeone

            Sorry for the confusion.  Link for Scoop to collect from us so they can go watch it.  Scoop offered to go if we paid.  So asking for his link to donate for his tix.

      • Terrenceor

        As you are watching it you will wonder how we as a people have become so self destructive and careless with our Republic. If this was not true, it would be one helluva political novel with disfunctional and sinister characters around the globe shaping the thinking of a young kid who will eventually take down a super power with the consent of the people of the Super Power.

        • NJK

          History will not look kindly at those who allowed him to do this. I mean those in Congress, the courts, and the military hierarchy . I think it will show them as self absorbed incompetents, who were more concerned with thier cushy jobs, than the country, or thier own children. They seem to think thier own children will escape the damage. Some superpower, huh? A bunch of cowards.

          • Let’s not forget the media who are complicit in all of this.

        • smmy33

          And how do you think most Super Powers fail, from within.

        • Academia in America is where we can find many of the sinister characters. They have been dumbing down our kids, with the help of the News media, TV Programing, and The movies, their dumbing down of Americans have been highly successful. Then the Obama / Democrat Government comes in and puts the final nails in the coffin of America, by selling a bill of goods in the form of governmnet hands outs from cradle to grave.
          We must vote out Obama / democrats, then we must clean out our public Educational System that is completely rewriting true American history to fit the lefts amaginary and dangerous Marxist humanist idology.

        • Nobody was paying attention or they didn’t care. They were too busy with whatever distraction they were consumed with. Some were just too busy with life…working to support their families or just trying to keep their heads above water, especially in this economy. Some were and still are members of the great unwashed who continue to rely on government to sustain them. Some are or were university/college kids who are/were being conditioned by leftist professors to believe that government will solve all of their problems. Those who are now graduated and weighed down with enormous student load debt are unemployed and back living with their parents. They’re lucky to get a job at McD’s flipping burgers. However, what I have just mentioned are the very things that are causing more people to pay attention and take action now because their lives and livelihoods are at stake. Many of them have already watched Dinesh D’Souza’s movie. For those who are still figuratively asleep and haven’t watched “2016 Obama’s America”, it will take a catastrophic event to wake them up. By that time, it may be too late.

          • 12grace


            Your points are well-taken.

            We cannot change the past but we sure as heck can do something about our present and future.

            • Amen to that, 12grace.

    • Terrenceor

      Have seen it twice. Best hour and a half you will spend this election season.

      • wodiej

        ok, thank you, I’m there tomorrow then.

    • bartman44

      I follow politics very closely — espeically in the last 4 years. There is definitely a strong worth to seeing the film because it immerses you in Obama’s world to see it from his perspective. Dinesh did a fine job gathering information and interviewing people. It is NOT an Obama hit piece (e.g., hidden records, mysterious past), but lets the viewer make up his/her mind when confronted with the facts regarding his early associations.

      • Joe

        She was smart and didn’t drink anything in the Cinema!

        • Rshill7

          We saw it Friday evening at our local theater. Popcorn was only $17.00 for a bucket. Aaahahahaha. We passed on that.

          Enlightening is what it was. Folks should go see it. Bring your own popcorn.

          • Goldni007

            The movie is a phenom. Tons of ppl opening night. I left out of the theater heavy hearted thinking “oh God what have we done?” We’ve got a serious problem in this nation and I don’t mean Obama. He’s the result. We’ve got a heart problem.

      • BikerHoop

        I have to agree with you bartman. I liked the way he spent the first half of the movie establishing Obama’s connections with communists, anarchists, etc. It helps folks understand where his thinking comes from in addition to what he gleened from his father. The in the second half he had the experts explain what the U.S. will look like if Obama is reelected.

        As an aside, there were only about 20-30 people in the theater (12:45 PM) but I heard several gasps and a couple of “Oh my Gods”.

    • conservative58

      You will no doubt already know a lot of the information in the film. However, it is definitely worth seeing! Plus, you will be supporting a conservative documentary film, which will likely get Michael Moore’s panties twisted in a wad. (OK — horrible image but you get the point!)

      Also — sort of an open thread item (sorry)….
      Hannity is re-airing ‘The Hope and Change’ tonight on FOX at 10. I’ve got the DVR set and anxious to see that one as well.

      • unclesamnephew

        i heard a definition from ZoNation of inconsequential. inconsequential is the last sheet of tissue on a TP roll after Michael Moore has just ate a plate of spicey chicken wings. an ugly mental pic i know.

        • conservative58

          ROFL — UGH!!!
          I’ll definitely have to erase that pic from my mental library!!!

          • Just the sight of him alone makes me want to toss my cookies. What an absolutely vile, hypocritical man he is.

    • p m

      Am going to see it next week, going down to Bellingham WA from Vancouver, not so far, thankfully. I have the book it’s based on but there’s still new stuff not seen before, like interviews with his brother and things that have come out since the book. Friends say it’s definitely worth seeing. Even Thomas Sowell sat in the aisle to watch it – and he knows a lot more than many!

    • unclesamnephew

      cus wodiej, go see it! my wife i did so last sunday. you ask if the information is already known. for myself yes, however the pieces of the puzzle didn’t fit a pattern that i could see. for my wife, she was stund. there was information i hadn’t shared with her. we work strange schedules. i can see the pattern now. Obama is the only POTUS, who hates America, for what his father and grandfather accusses us of.

    • canscrap

      My husband and I ARE news junkies and know more than most people, & we enjoyed it a lot. It was well presented and worth going to see plus the best part was when it was over the entire audience stood up & clapped. They might have considered voting obama but now I think they’ll be voting Romney
      This is NOT MY comment, I copied this from another blazer, which I think describes better than I could, what this is about.
      “I saw the movie and it was not really ANTI-OBAMA, IMO. It was more a glimpse at where he came from and how his view of the world was formed. It IS an ANTI-Socialist movie, which I totally agree with and Obama is a SOCIALIST. Worth seeing the comparison between two immigrants from poor countries with completely different views of the American dream.”

      If you decide to see it, please post & give me your thoughts

    • LadyImpactOhio

      I follow politics and there is a lot in this movie I had no idea about. D’Souza sets up an interesting theory or why Obama is like he is. Just going for that is worth it.

    • If your worried about it being a waste of time I recommend you take a group of liberals with you. Pay their way if you have to. I’ll be worth it. I promise.

    • REHLV

      The difference is like looking at all the ingredients to bake a cake and looking at the baked cake. It is very well done and puts things in perspective. I am sure you will enjoy the movie.

      • I haven’t seen the film but want to -what age group in regards to kids would you say this movie would be good for?

        • Cheryl – I think teens would be ok with it. They may be bored but I think an hour and a half is worth it. You can then discuss afterward. I would not recommend any younger as it is a documentary and their attention will definitely wane.

        • REHLV

          Actually, this film is for grown-ups. Kids will get bored within the first five minutes. Well worth seeing.

    • PVG

      I just saw 2016 last night. Honestly, there was nothing that I didn’t already know. HOWEVER, D’Souza does a masterful job of building the case for BO’s anti-American views by recounting his life story/biography then ties in all his policies to further his case with evidence.
      I wanted to see it BEFORE I encouraged others to do the same. The movie is very well done.

    • You may know the information but this shows the pieces of the “puzzle” and how they go together. For me it was a refresher course, helping me recall much of what I have known but deposited in the hard to retrieve area of my brain…lol!

    • It is definitely worth seeing. I had done major research in 2008 yet there were still some things that were revealed. Not much, but he put it together in a very powerful way. My husband had not done as much research and he said he left the theater with a sick feeling in his stomach.

    • brad460

      Go see it. I read/watch/listen to every source (well nearly) known to man and I found it very informative and while much of the specifics you know, the way he connects the dots made a hell of a lot of sense to me.

    • capelady

      I just saw it… and if you have been paying attention you won’t learn a lot, but seeing it as it is presented is pretty stunning. Worth going to see – and by all means if you have anyone who is not sure about voting for Romney – take them with you!

    • 12grace

      I understand your point,wodiej,however, I personally do my best to buy books, CD’s or go to movies or presentations by patriots so they can afford to bring this information to others that may not know this stuff. Plus, it seems to me that we should financially support those brave patriots that dare to speak out about this regime.

      Conversely, I do my best not to buy products, go to movies or events that financially benefit liberals or either political party.

  • What’s interesting is that throwing those charts at him has nothing to do with the majority of his book/movie.

    • conservative58

      Very typical of the liberal’s whole campaign strategy — diversion from the REAL issues!

      • Kind of like a magic trick. Watch the right hand while the left hand is working behind the scenes.

  • Liars make statistics has never been more true after that chart from CNN. Guess they didn’t include Clinton since a negative number would make the lie too obvious.

  • d00mie

    I do believe those were spot on perfect responses to a hostile passive-aggressive interview. Many kudos to D’Souza.

    • Orangeone

      D’Souza should have been a guest speaker at the RNC

      • canscrap

        There is one concern for all of us, A Soro’s owned Spanish company (SCYTL) is going to be counting the votes. Why?

        • actionsspeaklouder

          Is this true??? Surely people know not to trust anything that Soros is connected with. I can’t believe this! I’m not trying to be argumentative, but where did you hear this – what is the source of your knowledge? This is an OUTRAGE if it is true. It is wrong, wrong, wrong. This had better not be the case – I’m going to call my congressman about this.

          • canscrap

            Breitbart had 5 people that brought it up and others verified it. I vaguely remember hearing something like that a while back but dismissed it at the time and forgot about it. I’ll google SCYTL and see if I can find something credible…. I’ll BE BACK

          • MaxineCA

            Well, when it was exposed that the last election machine maintenance was contracted out to the SEIU in NV, I guess they decided to ship the counting of the votes to Spain. Hum….. does that mean they shipped jobs overseas?

          • canscrap

            There is a hugh article about it here but I don’t have time to read it all…. burning supper as I type.http://www.snopes.com/politics/ballot/scytl.asp

            • MaxineCA

              So who are you going to believe Breitbart or Snopes. I’ll take Breitbart. Snopes leans very left, while pretending to be bringing the facts.

              • MLCBLOG

                Somewhere I was informed that snopes is a Soros concern, that is, run by his people if not owned in part by him.

        • Orangeone

          Great question.  2nd good question – how the he11 did that happen?

        • MLCBLOG

          Because the Dems contracted it out to them for the upcoming election.

    • SurfinCowboy

      Totally agree. You said it.

    • If the CNN interviewer had clenched her teeth any harder, they would have shattered and the pieces would have fallen out of her mouth, sort of like in a cartoon.

  • Joe

    LOOK! – Let’s get this straight – Once and for all

    The following networks are THE ENEMY

    CBS–NBC–ABC–MSLSD–CNN — NPR and of course Al Gore Play TV

    If you “chat” with the enemy – You deserve to be shot down

    If all ignore these enemies –

    Maybe – Just maybe they will stop being hostile and start being honest

    It is just that simple – You enter enemy territory at your own risk

    • opinionatedhermit

      “If you “chat” with the enemy – You deserve to be shot down”

      Chatting is not a shooting offense.

      My 2 cents.

      • d00mie

        I agree, if you won’t even talk to your opponents, then you’ve forfeited the debate. Didn’t the Wisconsin Dems prove that?

        • Agreed. Talk to them to show them who the better person is too. Show them you’re not afraid to be interviewed by whomever the interrogator of choice is and then like Dinesh, give their lies and falsehoods the proverbial “smack down”.

    • I watch them just to be informed of their spin and misinformation. That way when I discuss issues with liberals I am aware of what and where they are getting their information. Best to know both sides.

  • 911Infidel

    Phfft….CNN…Everthing thing that they do each and every day is one big fat lie rolled up in an enigma.

    • Joe

      Enema or Enigma
      (Sorry -I couldn’t resist that one)

      • 911Infidel



    Good Movie…when you leave you are asking WTF…..How did this happen

    • unclesamnephew

      yes indeed! how and more importantly WHO? who seen the young Obama growning up and help steer him onto the dark path. there weremany people in his younger life

      • I believe he was groomed and prepped to be President. The people who did the “grooming” and “prepping” are or were devout anti-America types (see socialists, communists, and progressives).

        • GrmaTX

          Groomed or just in the right place at the right time…either way the anti-America types that surround him now were not even mentioned in the movie. His administration and his associations are full of anti-Americans. These associations and power players are as much a concern as the people in his past. Not much was said about Chicago either nor his wife. I understand it can’t all go into one movie, but there might need to be a sequel.

          • They could easily include that in a sequel, which I would also watch if they put one out.

    • NJK

      “All that’s needed for evil to prevail, is that good men do nothing.”Edmund Burke

  • bartman44

    Excellent documentary that chronicles Obama’s young life and who he looked up to and then went on to adopt their philosophy and political ideology. Dinesh does this without it being a propaganda piece and leaves the viewer scared of what may happen if Obama wins a 2nd term. It’s all about Obama’s anti-colonialist agenda for not only the US, but also for the world. Everyone should see this before casting their vote in November.

  • carmtom13

    This is an excellent factual documentary and I don’t care what party you belong to everyone should see it. A thought occurred to me when I saw how BHOs brother lives; BHO preaches we are our brothers keeper, well if we are why aren’t you helping your brother BHO??

    • Joe

      He meant that for YOU

      He meant YOU are HIS brothers keeper

      When is YOUR flight leaving to help out HIS brother

    • GrmaTX

      But, did you notice in the film BHO’s brother didn’t seem to want/need/expect help from him? I interpreted that as his brother was not into entitlements…

      • bartman44

        In fact, George Obama is not anti-colonialist like BHO. George Obama rather realized some time ago that developing nations can help poor countries develop. He resents that Kenya gave up on that.

      • After watching and listening to George Obama, the wrong Obama is President, in my opinion.

        • GrmaTX

          You know, that thought crossed my mind, also. George’s ideology seemed quite different from his brother’s…more mature, more logical.

  • Galatiansch2vs20

    CNN- Corrupt Narrative Network

    D’Souza is clever to word facts in such a way so as not to not sound like he is speaking in a negative fashion about Obama. With honey, he may draw more Democrat flies into see his documentary.

    • unclesamnephew

      but i did hear D’Souza say from the horse’s mouth, or was that donkey?

  • Patriot077

    What a great interview.

    Dinesh had her gritting her teeth at the end because he is so unflappably conversational as he cites the facts. I had to laugh!

  • d1carter

    CNN: The reason our ratings are so bad is the fact we do not choose sides, we stay right down the middle…LOL.

  • DavidRobertson

    My theory is that his movie is providing the Romney bounce a bit more than the convention.

  • rjcylon

    I don’t know why CNN even bothers pretending it isn’t liberal. It’s insulting to its viewers* to think they are so dumb they can’t see the bias. Just come out and say “look out MSNBC, we’re coming for you!”

    Be what you are. If you want to be Chris Matthews or Ed Shultz, then be that.

  • NJK

    Alright, I’m intrigued. I have to see it.

  • HARP2

    According to new research released today by Rasmussen, more voters identify themselves as Republican than ever in the last 8 years. More importantly, by a 4 point margin, more voters identify as GOP than Democrat. This is the largest spread between the parties ever. Worse for Democrats, the number of voters who identify with their party is also approaching an historic low.

    In August, 37.6% of voters identified themselves as Republican. That is up from 34.9% in July. By contrast, just 33.3% of voters identify themselves as Democrats. That is very near their historic low in February, when 32.4% of voters identified as Democrat. The 4.3 margin in favor of the GOP is the biggest gap ever between the parties. In November 2010, when the GOP won a landslide in the mid-term elections, their advantage was just 1.3 points.



      Wow! this is exciting.

  • smmy33

    He’s great and so concise and reasonable. Unlike say , Michael Moore, who opens his mouth and you understand immediately that he’s not too smart and a liberal, who manipulates, with no actual facts to support his opinions.

    • He ate too much “Canadian Bacon”. 😀

  • DINORightMarie

    I just got back from seeing this movie. I took my husband, who was already not voting Obama – but he was impressed.

    The more people who see this, the better!!! This is an Anti-America POTUS, and the vetting that did NOT happen in 2008 needs to be done NOW. Thank you Dinesh D’Sousa. Both the book and the film are fantastic!

  • Army_Pilot1967

    I’ve got to see that movie….I’ll bet I’ll learn some new and disturbing things about the pretender in the White House.

  • John3_3

    He is way to smart for her. She says at the end, “I wish we had a lot more time to chat about this but we’re out of time.” Yeah, right. You can tell in the interview that she didn’t have any idea what he was talking about when he was discussing facts and colonialization. He was way over her head.

  • We all know who made sense in that interview and it sure wasn’t the moderator.

  • ernst1776

    This Dinesh D’Souza seems like a smart guy. Need to learn more about him.

    • PhillyCon

      He has written numerous books. All very good.

    • I have several of his books and I think he is an incredible intellectual.


    …not enough time to hear the TRUTH typical CNN , NBC , CBS , MSLSD , BBC , CBC , CTV , CHCH , ABC , CNBC … and on and on .”

  • Kevlar_Vest

    I love how Dinesh instantly shot down that idiotic percentage graph that CNN tried to pass off. It IS all about the baseline. Obama has added nearly 6 trillion to the debt – over a trillion more than Bush and in less than half the time it took Bush to hit 5 trillion.(Redacted)

  • MaxineCA

    I’m wondering if this is a preview of the twisted stats that their commentators will bring out next week during the DNC. Maybe they ran them “up the flag pole” to see if they would fly. Boy, did they ever underestimate Dinesh, who KNEW the facts. Failed ambush attempt by CNN!

    I noticed at the end of the interview the bottom part of the screen said “Anti-Obama movie rakes in millions. Well, if that’s where the truth leads ….. hopefully people will be even more anti-Obama.

    • freenca

      In all fairness then, the DNC should play the movie at their convention next week ! IN PRIME TIME just to prove how FAIR they are!! Ha Ha Ha, never gonna happen, but it would wake up the so called compassionate left, like a Klaxon, huh? 😉

      • They couldn’t do it…the shock would be too great.

    • I like the fact that it has limited showing yet has been #3 in the box office. Awesome.

  • Rocco11

    The media has officially gone home and gotten their shine boxes for Obama. Disgraceful..

    • She thought she would trip him up with that Reagan question but he worked for Reagan. The chart was Reagan, Bush, Obama. The snake left out Clinton. God they are so vile.

      • You’re expecting them to practice genuine journalism and do actual research. As we are learning, the only research they do is by getting their talking points and show prep from lefty blogs.

    • LOL…they shouldn’t forget the Chapstick as well. It goes on better after a shine.

  • Siobhan7
    • MaxineCA

      When I first saw the pic of that 16 ft. sand sculpture of dear leader, I thought…. is there no end to his ego? Thank you Mother Nature for smacking it! Ha ha ha. I hope the rain and the winds keep coming.

      • No Greek columns either. Too bad.

  • Dwbrisiel

    I saw the film with my husband last night. I actually became sick to my stomach . It upset me sooooooo much. How the majority of voters were duped. I pray that the majority of voters will wake up and see what has happened to America in 4 short yeas!!!!

  • LadyImpactOhio

    I didn’t watch the vid but I have seen the movie. Frankly I was surprised at how apolitical and unbiased it was. Just stating the facts.

  • proudhispanicconservative

    Going to watch the movie tonight, want to see this for myself and see if this guy is the horribe person we all think he is.

    • proudhispanicconservative

      watched it, If I was afraid of this guy before: Now I am really pissed off. The movie was very well researched and what I like the most is how D’souza uses Obama’s own words to put it all together. I encourage My fellow scoopers here to do themselves a favor and watch it, I guarantee you will be more motivated. Obama Has to go.

    Perhaps you should seek some advise from Dr. Thomas Sowell. Here’s a link to many of the articles he has written. He has also written many excellent books, which might be good reading for you students. He is a brilliant man who speaks the truth.


    Here is his review of 2016

  • msverde1

    The key to calculating percentage differences, as D’Souza correctly explains, is determining where the baseline is set. It a typical tactic of the left to skew the legitimacy of finance and economic figures with manipulation and biased reporting. Since they will never change their method of obFUscating the facts, always, as RS has perfectly illustrated in the chart, check out the facts first before drawing your conclusions. The prostitutes in the media will simply be that, nothing more and surely nothing less. What a miserable existence it must be living a life of virtueless vapidity and depending on it as a mean of last resort to obtain some semblance of worthy significance…among rational human beings and commoners! What a pity!!

    I only go to drive-in theaters, and we don’t have any nowadays. You could bring your own food and drinks, lawn chairs set up in the back of the pick-up. Please! Someone bring back the drive-ins! And yes, I did see “Giant” at the drive-in.

  • Major914

    The dumb poodle conducting that interview rather obviously hated doing so, and very especially hated not being able to trip up D’Souza with her cheap claptrap questioning.

    Its terribly difficult for these myopic liberals whenever they can’t get away with simply dismisssing conservative ideas and perspectives as backwards or stupid. She looked like she’d rather get a root canal than have to talk to D’Souza without putting him down.

    The most successful political documentary of all time! Take THAT!

  • Of course the spending is intentional! It isn’t by accident!

  • Dinesh D’Souza is brilliant. He made that person from CNN look like a fool and shot down every one of her assertions. This documentary could be the “Swiftboat” documentary of the 2012 election. It certainly is popular and it will remain so for at least a month to come. That can do a lot of damage to the Obama campaign, and rightfully so, given what a pathetic and duplicitous president Obama has been.

  • It’s a good thing Dinesh is brilliant.

  • mder4thegov

    One disagreement, Dinesh: I, and many other Americans, I suspect–would find, and did find it quite despicable–that people voted for Obama to make themselves feel better. That’s no way to elect the leader of the free world. (As bright as you are, how do you not come to the same conclusion?)

    • He explains that at the end of this clip! Deep down inside MOST Americans probably do want to show that they are not biased or prejudice and gave this guy a HUGE PASS-hoping perhaps for the best! Unfortunately for America he is not good for our country or our Constitution!

  • Jpep

    Seen this twice already and caught something I missed the first time around.

    In Obama’s own voice he says, “One of the TRICKS I learned…”

    Aside from magicians, the only people I know of who rely on tricks are hustlers!

    • Ha! Yes, his hand is quicker than the untrained (or uninformed) eye.

  • Conservative_Hippie

    You don’t want to get into an argument with D’Souza. Conservative + Mensa Intelligence = arse kicked!

  • ConnieConservative

    The most shocking item in the film was that 2/3 of our nuclear arms are gone.
    Negotiated away. And what was that whisper to the Russian’s on open mic?
    More flexibility ? I don’t think so. R&R 2012!

    Thanks Dinesh. We all need to know this.

  • PhillyCon

    The guy is brilliant. Read “Illiberal Education” in college, and it was one of the books that guided me towards conservatism.

    That CNN anchor had no idea what she was getting into by going with her DNC talking points.

    • rich wojcik

      the CNN dudette is so stupid she cannot comprehend basic facts…..her liberalism/socialism agenda made her to think with her lower brain, between her…… you know………………. 😉

    • His “Letters to a Young Conservative” was the best conservative book I’ve read. I also don’t even remember buying it, or why I bought it. It just happened to stand out, and it was the first time I had read conservatism explained. I’ve read that book more times than any other book.

      I’ve read a lot of conservative books, but I think the reason this guy stands out is because he makes everything relatable (uses a lot of analogies to explain things) and unlike many other conservative books which read like a legal brief, D’souza tells a story and gets you wrapped into his writing.

  • She certainly isn’t going to be accused of being a math genius. There’s a big difference between percentages and raw numbers. What a numb skull.

  • dennisl59

    “The Roots of Obama’s Rage” explains to all.

  • Skullf15

    How many people noticed CNN’s despicable technique of video splitting. Twice when Dinesh was making a point, CNN went to a split screen distracting the viewer from D’Souza’s comments. When Dinesh was done talking CNN took the Obama split video away. CNN did this twice…once at 3:24 with a clip of Obama from Nov 5 2008, and then again at 4:59.

    This interview is considered a negative Obama interview…so, if CNN can bring in old video of Obama, they distract the viewer in favor of a smiling obama and positive picture.

    CNN is right behind MSNBC in being considered the worst cable news outlets, and their rating prove it!

  • Hate to burst your bubble, guys, but F9/11 made almost $120 million in the US, and over $220 million worldwide.

    • It just shows that at the time, more people liked fiction.

  • Boy. If her grin was any tighter, she’d need a crow bar to get rid of it.

  • B-Funk

    People believe it. There’s a chart going around facebook that shows Obama lowering the deficit by 100 billion- amongst other obvious lies. It’s not even close to true, but people believe it. There are a lot of uninformed morons out there. In thinking about it, I have to agree with Rush. We can survive another 4 years of Obama. It’s his voters we can’t survive.

  • aZjimbo

    Typiucal condescending lib.

  • Sandra123456

    I don’t feel badly about our country’s racial history. My family probably owned slaves. We don’t do that anymore.

    Did you know we were still killing Indians 55 years after the slaves were free?

    Slavery ended 149 years ago. We stopped killing Indians 94 years ago.

    I think we can all stop feeling guilty now.

    • Terrenceor

      What do you mean we? Slavery ended in the North in the mid to late 1700’s. Slavery was in direct conflict with our founding document, The Declaration of Independence. A Compromise was struck to bring the Southern Colonies into the Union, but efforts to end slavery were introduced during the first seating of Congress until 1860.

      The Democratic Party was the party of slavery and the party of ethnic cleansing of the indians in the South by the founder of the modern Democratic Party who is celebrated every year at Jefferson/Jackson dinners around the country, Andrew Jackson.

  • brad460

    yeah, they don’t have the “time”. Truth is they don’t have the brains. Home Run Dinesh, both this interview and the movie. I’m as right wing as you can get and I’ll take as many immigrants like you as we can find around the globe. Talk about someone adding to our nation. Good God. He is a young man and he has done more in a short time to benefit our nation than many people do their entire lives. My hat is off to you, fine sir!

  • ObamaPelosi

    Brilliant. Dinesh did not fall into any of the traps laid down by CNN reporter. He is amazing. He tells the truth without bias. No one can claim racism on this. Our country truly wanted a man in office to heal the wounds of racism, but instead we got someone who further divides us. Such a shame.

  • Mary_Linda

    She tried, with her shallow mind, to dislodge a giant from his deep conviction.

  • Jay

    D’Souza climbs willingly into the lion’s den. Brave man. Nice of that Commie News Network broad to try and almost hold back her disgust of anyone’s criticism of the Annointed One. Or maybe she was just uncomfortable talking to (whisper) one of them. (end whisper)

  • mediaaccess1

    Got the book! Great!

  • Why can’t D’Souza just let his film stand on its merits, instead of running around with a beggar’s bowl to all these liberal hacks? If the film is worth seeing, word will get out, and people will go & buy a ticket, or wait for the DVD.

  • Kordane

    I must say I was very impressed by how D’Souza handled himself in that interview; he didn’t let anything slip past him.

    That’s not to say I like D’Souza though. He’s pretty bad on anti-jihadism/islamism. Robert Spencer rips the crap out of him for that on a regular basis.

  • bobemakk

    The lamestream medias only defense is to lie about Obama just like Obama lies all the time. Now I just heard an Islamic Muslim is leading the prayers at the Democratic convention. How low can you go?

  • CalCoolidge

    I love how she tries to force that clenched smile onto her face, as she has to endure airing truth about Obama.

    • leel004

      ……my thoughts exactly ! Kinda felt sorry for her…….NOT….let her enjoy her pity party in the next 4 years

  • Liberty1959

    Dinesh destoryed her arguments and comments. Outstanding!

  • kong1967

    Lol, they try to make it look as if Bush and Reagan created more debt than Obama. I fell off my chair laughing so hard. Ok, I didn’t, but that’s how laughable this is.

    D’Souza was ready with the right answer. “It depends on the base”. He explained it a little but I don’t think the libtards have a clue what he’s talking about. It does not mean that Bush and Reagan spent more money than Obama. I can see what kind of mess this election is going to be with all the voodoo math the left is going to use to lie about Obama’s accomplishments.

  • NJK

    Is it just me, or have all of these talking heads on TV, looking like something out of the old Soviet Union?

  • 12grace

    Dinesh D’Souza is an American patriot. I love the way he corrects the lies of CNN.

    I can’t wait to see this movie!

  • RobCon

    D’Souza has got his number and it clearly sails over the heads of the vacuous media.

  • giatny

    I wish more would stress the fact that Pelosi ran the House
    from Jan 2007 through Jan 2011. She played a major part in
    the explosive debt.

  • dontdrinkthecoolaid

    For those LIBs out there, Mr. D’Souza totally choomed CNN with nothing more than the truth.


    • To Toby: Please explain what you mean when you say Mr. Desousa is “very inconsistant”. I appreciate your resonse.

  • How can anyone say this movie distorts the truth? Obama wrote the book this movie is based on! it’s Obamas own voice narrating. Spin that Dems!

  • This MSM charlatan couldn’t out maneuver Dinesh D’Souza!

  • rich wojcik

    how to pi$$ off Matthews or any liberal:
    YES! We don’t like FuBar Ack because he is 50% black!!! 😉
    And what are YOU going to do about it???!!???
    Call us racists?? …………………. we call you, rightfully, a total idiot, educated beyond your questionable intelligence….

  • Excellent answer to the last question … and without hesitation!

  • CNN and all network news suck.

  • texasjetman

    My wife and I went to see OBAMA 2016 yesterday and came away very worried about the future of our country. I have 2 sons that have fought for our UNITED STATES OF AMERICA one fought in Desert Storm and the other has spent his first tour of duty in AFGHANISTAN. I just hope that the people of these UNITED STATES OF AMERICA wake up and vote for a different path to travel.

    • ObamaSpin

      C’mon Obama 2016 is so full of made up crap. Bill Maher had the producer on his show and blew him right off the stage with all his nonsense.

      If you’re worried about you sons fighting in the war then vote for Obama to get them home otherwise expect more futile fighting under Romney for people who hate our guts.

      Wake up Obama is our only hope on fixing our economy. You cannot create jobs without spending pure Keynesian economics. Reagan knew that as did all past successful presidents. Tax cuts for the rich will just decrease revenue with very few jobs created. Very few since it’s NOT the taxes and regulations that drives unemployment up despite all the business whining. What drives unemployment up is all the outsourcing done to avert the high American wages that is the result of our high cost and standard of living.

      A vote for the right is a vote for a depression.

  • You idiots don’t know anything about the deficit and debt.

    you act like Bush ended his presidency with a balanced budget, rather than losing 1.2 trillion per year.

  • ObamaSpin

    You forget to state that the spending that is going on today is NOT on any NEW projects. Other than the Stimulus Bill most of the spending centers around unemployment checks, the wars, senior drug donut hole, and lack of collected revenue due to the Bush and Obama tax cuts, and not mention again high unemployment. Check it out for yourself.

    Another thing exactly what spending bills were passed these 3.75 years that drives this deficits? Not much!! Cutting spending will just increase unemployment which will increase unemployment check payouts and more uncollected revenue. Tax cuts for the rich will also decrease revenue with very few jobs created. Very few since it’s NOT the taxes and regulations that drives unemployment up despite all the business whining. What drives unemployment up is all the outsourcing done to avert the high American wages that is the result of our high cost and standard of living.

    Listen a vote for the right means a vote for a depression. Friedman trickle down economics is dead and if we follow in that vein so will go America.

  • ObamaSpin

    Listening to this nut bag Dinesh talking about such nonsenical hogwash just makes me want to puke to think that so many people in this country are so stupid. Seriously are you all nuts???

    On the debt crises CNN and Dinesh forget to state that the spending that is going on is NOT on many NEW Obama projects. Other than the Stimulus Bill most of the spending centers around unemployment checks, the wars, senior drug donut hole, and lack of collected revenue due to the Bush and Obama tax cuts, and not mention again high unemployment. Check it out for yourself.

    Another thing exactly what spending bills were passed these 3.75 years that drives these deficits? Not much!! Cutting spending will just increase unemployment which will increase unemployment check payouts and more uncollected revenue.

    Tax cuts for the rich will also decrease revenue with very few jobs created. Very few since it’s NOT the taxes and regulations that drives unemployment up despite all the business whining about market uncertainty. What drives unemployment up is all the outsourcing done to avert the high American wages that is the result of our high cost and standard of living. BTW if CEOs told the truth that they offloaded our jobs due to high American wages their stocks would drop like a rock.

    Listen a vote for the right means a vote for a depression. Friedman trickle down economics is dead and if we follow in that vein so will go America.
