Conservative Filmmaker Being Indicted By Obama's Government

According to a recent article in The Hollywood Reporter (THR) filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza has been accused of donating too much money to a Republican politician who ran against a Democratic candidate looking to fill the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Hillary Clinton when she moved over to head the State Department as President Obama’s Secretary of State.

Wendy Long, a conservative and college friend of D’Souza, ran against and lost to moderate-turned-progressive Democratic candidate Kirsten Gillibrand in the New York election. D’Souza reportedly gave the Long campaign $20,000 in her bid to defeat Gillibrand and this, according to the Federal Elections Commission is a violation of campaign law which limits the amount an individual can give to any particular candidate.

According to the indictment D’Souza had amassed the contribution from various persons who wanted to help the Long campaign financially. The real fault lies not so much with the amount of the donations but as to D’Souza’s false claims concerning the source of those contributions.

Dinesh D’Souza is no friend of the Obama Administration or of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and his highly critical 2012 documentary film about them and their governance titled “Obama’s America 2016 - Love Him Hate Him You Don't Know Him,” was a surprise box office success ($33 million USD) that threw some powerful progressive liberals back on their heels with many of the facts concerning President Obama and those in his administration.

Because of the insights delivered by the film concerning President Obama the film’s co-producer - Gerald Molen - sees this charge brought against his friend and filmmaker as purely politically motivated because of the impact D'Souza’s film had on the minds of so many who viewed it. It is no secret that as a result of the revelations from the movie and all that has followed in its wake the President’s poll numbers have seen a steady decline and many in the conservative ranks see this move against D’Souza has focused payback.

“In America, we have a long tradition of not doing what is commonly done in too many other countries,” stated Molen to THR - “criminalizing dissent through the selective enforcement of the law...When American citizens begin to suspect that people are being arrested for alleged minor violations because of their vocal dissent against their elected representatives or rulers, it breeds disrespect and contempt for the law and suspicion of those officials.”

While the charges stem from an actual election law on the books it is considered to be of such a minor category that usually it has been ignored in the past. Yet, some are leveling a charge of reverse-favoritism against the Obama White House and arguing that this smacks of politicized hit-listing in much the same way the IRS was directed to go after certain conservative groups like The Tea Party organizations throughout the country.

An attorney for D’Souza told THR that the filmmaker “did not act with any corrupt or criminal intent whatsoever...at worst this was an act of misguided friendship by D’Souza.”

The filmmaker has a new movie coming out on July 4, 2014 titled “America.” I would encourage everyone to see it. If it is as illuminating as his Obama 2016 film then not only will moviegoers be in for an entertaining couple of hours but a politically educational time that could literally change their lives and point of view about American politics.

21st Century Aesop Fable

I have no idea who originally created this take on the old Aesop's Fables but kudos to them for having such sharp insight into how the worldview of the United States has drastically changed in just a couple of generations.

The ANT AND THE GRASSHOPPER

Two Different Versions...Two Different Morals

Aesop's Original Version

The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed.

The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.

MORAL OF THE OLD STORY:

Be responsible for yourself, ensure your family's safety and provisions, plan ahead for all contingencies.

21st Century Modern Version

The ant works hard in the withering heat and the rain all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while he is cold and starving…

CBS, MSNBC, PBS, CNN, and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.

America's grasshoppers and Orthoptera sympathizers are stunned by the sharp contrast.

How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?

Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper and everybody cries when they sing, 'It's Not Easy Being Green ...'

Occupy the Anthill stages a demonstration in front of the ant's house where the news stations film the SEIU group singing, “ We shall overcome. “

Then Rev Al Sharpton's assistant has the group kneel down to pray for the grasshopper while he damns the ants. The Reverend Al cannot attend as he has contractual commitments to appear on his MSNBC show for which he is paid over two million dollars a year to complain that rich people do not care.

President Obama condemns the ant and blames President Bush 43, President Bush 41, President Reagan, Christopher Columbus, and the Pope for the grasshopper's plight….

Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid exclaim in an interview on The View that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.

Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity and Anti-Grasshopper Act retroactive to the beginning of the summer.

The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the Government Green Czar and given to the grasshopper.

The story ends as we see the grasshopper and his free-loading Caeliferians finishing up the last bits of the ant's food while the government house he is in, which, as you recall, just happens to be the ant's old house, crumbles around them because the grasshopper doesn't maintain it.

The ant has disappeared in the snow, never to be seen again.

The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident, and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of Arachnids who terrorize then ramshackle, a once prosperous and peaceful, neighborhood.

The entire Nation collapses, bringing the rest of the free world with it.

MORAL OF THE 21st Century STORY:

Be careful how you vote in 2014 and 2016.
