Obama film sheds light on startling facts

This publicity image released by Rocky Mountain Pictures, shows an undated film clip of director, Dinesh D'Souza, interviewing George Obama in "2016: Obama's America." Despite the unconventional release of "2016: Obama's America," the movie is among the most successful political documentaries of all time and it doesn't show signs of cooling down ahead of the presidential election.

I want you to see the film, 2016 Obama's America by Dinesh D'Souza.

It is not a birther film. D'Souza says that Obama was born in Hawaii, so if you are seeking a "See? I told you so" feeling, it's not in this film. But every other fear you have of an Obama reelection is.

It is a history of Barack Obama from birth to now, including interviews with his brother and many who knew him. Most important, it talks about the people who have had the most influence in his life. The film explains, without sensationalism, the reasons to fear four more years of Obama.

Of those who have influenced him, most hate America. They hate all for which we stand. D'Souza introduces us to the people who have played the most important roles in his decision making process and his philosophy and that's what is so frightening.

We all know about Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Obama's pastor for 20 years at Trinity United Church of Christ. Wright contended that the attacks of 9/11 were "America's chickens coming home to roost." Wright also said "not God Bless America, God Damn America." Wright claimed that he was offered $150,000 by Obama to disappear during the campaign.

More important than Wright were these names to remember: Frank Marshall Davis, Bill Ayers, Edward Sad and Roberto Unger. The philosophies and teachings of these men would be the reason Obama wants to humble America.

Frank Marshall Davis, an avowed Communist and member of the Communist Party of America is mentioned 22 times in Dreams From My Father, Obama's autobiography.

"He was a father figure with permanent influences in his life," Obama's book said of Davis. His eight years of counsel helped Obama navigate his teen years and into adult life.

By the way, Davis' full name is never given in the book, an indication that Obama knew how radical his mentor was.

Edward Wadi Sad is a professor at Columbia. He talked about the U.S. as an imperialistic society. He was particularly critical of Israel and Obama hung onto his anti-colonial philosophy and his anti-Israeli creed.

You all know his buddy William Ayers, a leader of the Weather Underground, participated in bombings of a New York City police headquarters, the United States Capitol and the Pentagon. It is suggested that Ayers participated in the fatal bombing at a San Francisco police station.

These and others like then have influenced Barack Hussein Obama.

The film is marvelous and it is factual, which is why it is so scary.
