Dinesh D’Souza, the political commentator, author and movie-maker came under fire four years ago when he wrote a column for Forbes Magazine, “How Obama Thinks” that speculated President Obama saw the world as split in two: those nations who colonized and oppressed and the victim nations and people who were colonized and were the oppressed.
D’Souza expanded on this theme in his blockbuster documentary 2016: Obama’s America that — despite or maybe because of — its being a huge hit was snubbed by the Academy Awards. However it did win D’Souza a federal indictment for behavior that, if proven, earned merely a misdemeanor charge when a donor to John Edwards engaged in the same alleged fundraising violation.
Was D’Souza right?
“I DIDN’T CONSIDER HIM AMERICAN” – Interviewing several people from Obama’s past, producers of “The Choice” documentary about the coming 2012 election find it inexplicable that there are no Columbia classmates who can attest to Obama’s attendance there.

NEW YORK, NY – A recent documentary about the life of Barack Obama broadcast on PBS’ “Frontline” called “The Choice 2012” presents a variety of testimony from alleged classmates of Obama during their mutual attendance of Occidental College and Harvard University.
However, when the producers attempted to film a segment about Obama’s attendance at Columbia University, they were unable to locate even one of Obama’s classmates from New York based University and, instead, recorded an interview with an alleged “roommate” who shared a rundown New York apartment with Obama.
What would you do if you knew that the top Democrat running for president was lying about his past?
That is the question I was faced with in 2008. I had met the young Barack Obama while he was a sophomore at Occidental College, and I knew that his commitment to socialism was deep, genuine, and longstanding. See my earlier article on American Thinker.
Despite monumental efforts to keep Obama’s entire past completely under wraps, questions persist over who and what Barack Hussein Obama really is and how a half-term senate political neophyte with a totally blank resume managed to defeat the Clinton machine to become the most secretive president in U.S. history. Is it a side show, or the main event?
Because Obama has refused to release his official vault birth certificate, college, passport records or family history including all medical records, and because he and those covering for him insist that there is ‘nothing to see here’ – many Americans are increasingly interested in how Obama was able to happen to America.
Is anyone who has examined the history of Barack Obama surprised at the chain of events that have played out over the past years? No. Debates, discussions and analyses have continued on about the economy, jobs, foreign policy and even the religion of Obama, when all one has to do is look at Obama’s past. He has kept hidden much of his past but even that is a solid indicator of his intentions and why his past is secret.
Let’s examine one of the simple aspects of Obama, his religion. One cannot look into his heart directly, but regardless of one’s profession, one’s acts are the window to the soul. Obama’s past associations clearly reveal a strong Muslim influence as well as radical theologies such as those espoused by Jeremiah Wright. Ideas that certainly are not Christian and in many cases are anti semitic. So why would anyone be surprised about the turmoil in Egypt?
The economy. Why would anyone paying attention be surprised about the economy and jobless rate. Obama has been enmeshed in socialism and redistribution of wealth for many years. Obama and his liberal, socialist buddies have been spending like drunken sailors with no regard for the impact on hard working Americans. Obama’s involvement with and support from ACORN should have been warning enough.
Now to the core of the problem. It appears that many politicians do not want to touch the Obama eligibility issues. This is not a political issue, it is a constitutional issue. The impression is that the problem will go away with the next presidential cycle. That Obama will be removed then. They are wrong.
The same forces and thought processes that drove Obama to hide his past and associate with Anti American elements still guide him. Obama eligibility issues, his extreme efforts to hide his birth certificate and college records are symptomatic of deeper problems. His utter disregard for the US Constitution is the larger problem and is why Obama must resign or be arrested. It is also why Congress and the courts must take this out of the political realm and into the sanctum of the rule of law. There is no other duty and priority higher than this.
