Obama’s America by Dinesh D’Souza

Whether you’ve seen 2016:  Obama’s America or not, you must read Dinesh D’Souza‘s companion volume and the follow-up to The Roots of Obama’s Rage, Obama’s America:  Unmaking the American Dream (Washington, DC:  Regnery Publishing, 2012).  In Obama’s America, D’Souza builds on and, occasionally, corrects what he wrote in The Roots of Obama’s Rage.  He thoroughly supports his thesis that Obama’s ideology is driven by the anti-colonial “dreams from [his] father.”

Spreading the Wealth by Stanley Kurtz

After you read The Roots of Obama’s Rage, you should pick up Spreading the Wealth:  How Obama Is Robbing the Suburbs To Pay for the Cities (New York:  Sentinel-Penguin, 2012) by Stanley Kurtz, the author of Radical-in-Chief.  When I started reading Spreading the Wealth, I was wondering how I would reconcile Kurtz’s theory with D’Souza’s.  Finally, on pages 51-52, Kurtz explains the relationship between neocolonialism and regionalism.

Video: “Dishonorable Disclosures”

Video:  “Dishonorable Disclosures

Intelligence and Special Operations forces are furious and frustrated at how President Obama and those in positions of authority have exploited their service for political advantage. Countless leaks, interviews and decisions by the Obama Administration and other government officials have undermined the success of our Intelligence and Special Operations forces and put future missions and personnel at risk.

The unwarranted and dangerous public disclosure of Special Forces Operations is so serious — that for the first time ever — former operators have agreed to risk their reputations and go ‘on the record’ in a special documentary titled “Dishonorable Disclosures.” Its goal is to educate America about serious breaches of security and prevent them from ever happening again.

Use of military ranks, titles & photographs in uniform does not imply endorsement of the Dept of the Army or the Department of Defense. All individuals are no longer in active service with any federal agency or military service.

The Great Destroyer by David Limbaugh

I believe it was Sean Hannity I heard call The Great Destroyer:  Barack Obama’s War on the Republic (Washington, DC:  Regnery Publishing, 2012) by David Limbaugh an encyclopedia.  That is a good description.  The book should be considered a reference work and kept on a handy shelf rather than read from beginning to end.

It includes a lot of good information but too much and too much detail for the casual reader to remember.

Limbaugh covers Obama’s war on

  • America
  • the right
  • the disobedient
  • our culture and values
  • the economy
  • our future
  • oil
  • other energy resources
  • business
  • national security
  • guns
  • the office of the President

The Amateur by Edward Klein

Edward Klein‘s new book, The Amateur:  Barack Obama in the White House (Washington, DC: Regnery Publishing, 2012), is interesting, informative, and readable, but it is not objective.  Klein doesn’t hesitate to insert his own opinion about Obama and his decisions and actions.  Unlike Screwed by Dick Morris and Eileen McGann, which I recently read and wrote about, The Amateur does have an index and a list of sources; however, there are no notes or parenthetical citations, and some of the people quoted aren’t even named.  Those deficiencies certainly bring the book’s and author’s credibility into question.

The Roots of Obama’s Rage by Dinesh D’Souza

The Roots of Obama’s Rage (Washington, DC:  Regnery Publishing) was published in 2010, but it is, perhaps, even more relevant now.  In fact, a movie, 2016:  Obama’s America, based on the book is being released next month.

I strongly recommend the book to anyone who wants to understand what Obama is doing to our country and why.  The book is informative and readable.

As he summarizes at the end of the second chapter, D’Souza’s

argument in this book is that it is the anti-colonial ideology of his father [as opposed to socialism or the American civil rights tradition] that Barack Obama took to heart.  From a very young age and throughout his formative years, Obama learned to see America as a force for global domination and destruction.  He came to view America’s military as an instrument of neocolonial occupation.  He adopted his father’s position that the free market is a code word for economic plunder.  Obama grew to perceive the rich as an oppressive class, a kind of neocolonial power within America.  He began to detest corporations as institutional mechanisms for economic control and exploitation.  In Obama’s worldview, profits are a measure of how effectively you have ripped off the rest of society, and America’s power in the world is a measure of how selfishly it consumes the globe’s resources and how ruthlessly it bullies and dominates the rest of the planet.

As a result of this worldview, however mistaken it is, D’Souza posits that Obama believes

he must work to wring the neocolonialism out of America and the West.  First, he must rein in the military so that it does not conduct wars of occupation against other countries.  Then he must use American leverage to restrict military adventurism on the part of America’s allies, especially the former colonial powers in Europe.  Even symbolic measures of humiliation are helpful in showing the former European colonialists that their day is now gone.  In addition, Obama seeks to check American and Western consumption of global resources so that the former colonial (and now neocolonial) powers do not consume what belongs to others.  Another objective for Obama is to bring the powerful sectors of American industry, such as the investment banks and health care, under government supervision and control.  Obama seeks a large custodial state as a protection against the dangers of concentrated corporate power.  Finally, Obama seeks to castigate and expose the rich, who are viewed as a neocolonial force within American society, so that they cease to be exploiters of the rest of the population.  (34-35)

In the following chapters, D’Souza makes a good case for his theory, applying it to major and minor events and decisions.

In the final chapter, he makes three predictions “about Obama’s future conduct”:

  1. Obama will support tax increases on the rich but not spending cuts to reduce the deficit
  2. “Obama will do little or nothing to stop” Iran from developing nuclear weapons
  3. Obama “will initiate procedures to try U.S. military officers and soldiers for war crimes” if the political atmosphere is favorable (203-04)

Of course, Obama’s administration did attempt to try CIA officers.

D’Souza has provided the answer to the question I’ve been asking since shortly after Obama was elected:  Is he stupid or evil?
