Dinesh D’Souza, the Indian immigrant to the United States turned patriotic filmmaker, has produced the most fantastic comeback in recent history as his newest film debuts in theaters this weekend. Severely punished on trumped up charges of violating campaign finance law, but really for roundly criticizing president Barack Obama, D’Souza defies government abuse of power and comes back fighting!
I watched two great films this weekend, both with great themes. One was an exciting Sci-Fi action thriller Star Trek Beyond, which included a lovely tribute to the old Star Trek cast, especially the recently deceased Leonard Nimoy, the intrepid Mr. Spock. The other film was the patriotic historical film by D’Souza called Hillary’s America, based on his best selling book. I want to talk about the latter one for just a minute.
You will remember that D’Souza’s last film about Barack Obama, 2016: Obama’s America became the second highest grossing documentary film in American history. I predict that this latest edition, Hillary’s America will have a running shot at smashing that record! This is the first installment in film of Indian-American immigrant Dinesh D’Souza following his conviction and re-education after a politically motivated judge attempted to silence him with trumped up campaign finance violation charges. D’Souza uses his time in prison to reflect on what happened to him and incorporates it as a theme in his latest film.
Most of the time when you run amok of campaign finance laws, you are given a tongue lashing from a judge, given community service and forced to pay a fine. But, if you are a conservative filmmaker who dares to criticize an African-American president and his party, you get the book thrown at you! D’Souza received 9-months in jail and had to undergo re-education i.e. brainwashing, and psychological counseling. You’d think he’d murdered someone! But D’Souza was undaunted, and used his time to study and prepare for his next book and film, one targeting the corrupt Hillary Clinton and her deceptive Democrat party!
Interviewing the fellows he was incarcerated with, many of them hardened criminals; he learned the art of the con. There are steps, you see, to becoming a good career criminal and they are these: make a plan; recruit people to help you; make the pitch; execute the plan; and lastly, never give up the con! Petty thugs, organized crime, use this criminal formula and as D’Souza quickly came to realize, corrupt politicians do as well.
The American Democrat party has been a party of criminals and the Clintons, Hillary and Bill, are no exception. They have a plan to steal the wealth and power of America and pitch a well-orchestrated con to the American People in an attempt to convince them that they are only working to provide the basics of life for them. That is the big lie. They convince people that they are looking out for the little guy, they get their vote, and then when they get into office, they take their victims for everything they have.
D’Souza goes on a journey of discovery into the secret history of the Democrat party and takes us along for the ride. He explores the early days of the Democrat Party to the days of president Andrew Jackson, the racist slave owner and Indian fighter. Jackson is the hallmark of the Democrat party then as now. As a slave owner, he stole the lives and work of African slaves to benefit his own greed and lust for power. D’Souza illustrates this ideology with the phrase, “you work, I eat”! As a landowner, Jackson was a brutal master, stealing the labor and lives of his slaves and punishing them for the slightest malefactions. As president, he drove the Native American peoples to the brink of destruction and then forced the remainder of the Native Peoples onto tiny reservations of worthless land where he continued to degrade and enslave them.
This summer I was at Crazy Horse Monument in South Dakota with my wife. Carved in stone higher than Mount Rushmore is the face of defiance, Chief Crazy Horse of the Oglala Lakota Indians! There is a popular theme associated with that monument, a phrase quoted from Chief Crazy Horse himself. When asked where his lands were after the triumph of the white invaders, Crazy Horse pointed and said, “My lands are where my people lie buried!”
“My lands are where my people lie buried!” -Chief Crazy Horse
There is another theme that can be seen there, if you are observant enough to look. This is from prominent Chief and Native American activist Red Cloud who said, “(The white man) made many promises, more than I can remember; he never kept but one, he promised to take our land, and he took it!”
“(The white man) made many promises, more than I can remember; he never kept but one, he promised to take our land, and he took it!” Chief Red Cloud
The Democrat Party, the Party of Slavery and the Trail of Tears, has taken everything from Native American Peoples and from the Africans they imported here as slaves. They’ve not changed their ways, but only come up with a new con. Meanwhile the Republican Party has been the party that resisted slavery and championed the rights of the first nation of people on this continent. D’Souza takes us on a historical journey with his film, showing us that the conflict of the Civil War was not one of North and South, as told in the text books, but one of the Republican Party vs. the Democrat Party.
Democrats take credit for the civil rights movement, but before they became ‘champions of social justice’ it was the Republican Party that championed that cause and does until this day. The Democrats dragged their feet all the way, instituted the KKK to intimidate blacks from owning guns, voting, or opposing their rule. Indeed, many were lynched by this hideous organization, the military branch of the party, but blacks weren’t the only ones; in addition to 3,000 blacks murdered by the KKK, 1,000 white anti-slave Republicans were also murdered. You don’t hear that in the history books!
When the Republicans eventually won the argument and it became clear that the Democrats would soon be relegated to the obscurity of history, for the sake of their own survival, they came up with a new con. They switched sides, but only in public. They would claim to be the new champions of civil rights, economic equality and social justice, while secretly they would be up to their old tricks, stealing that which they did not earn from their unsuspecting victims.
Like good con-artists, they would entice their victims, mostly minorities and the very vulnerable, with talk about how they would be the party to help them get a better life, the American dream. What they really were after were the votes to get and keep them in power. When they took over the levers of control, they used them to empower themselves, not the people they espoused to help. That is why the Democrat Party wants to undermine the national immigration laws. They bring people in in great numbers, put them in Ghettos and “reservations”, make promises they don’t keep and then swindle the people they bring in. No one can get out of the ghetto and their one role and purpose is to forever vote for the candidate with a “D” beside their name.
Fast forward to the present day. Barack Obama learned from the best Marxist teachers, including progressive hero and con artist Saul Alinsky. Hillary Clinton too was a pupil, she wrote her college thesis about her mentor; but Hillary surpassed her mentor in skill and ability, she took her knowledge past where she found it. It wasn’t enough to continue to push against the government, the leftist progressive movement had to BE the Government!
From the onset of Bill and Hillary’s political life together they have been a team for political and criminal corruption. Hillary married Bill full well knowing what he was, an unrepentant womanizer. But it didn’t matter because Bill’s suave air and skillful political speech could woo any crowd and it was what she needed to get what she wanted, which was everything. In exchange for serving to get and keep him elected, she would pounce upon anyone of his detractors, namely the women he had harmed, and destroy their reputations. She was very, very good at that.
Together the Clintons built a political machine that could not be opposed. They used their tax-exempt foundation, The Clinton Foundation, to build wealth in the name of charity and they used it to fill their personal coffers. They then used that capitol to help them fight and win political campaigns and gain even more wealth for themselves. One of the most egregious examples of this was the horribly destructive earthquake in Haiti. Ruined by the devastating quake, the Haitian people cried for help. What they got was Bill and Hillary Clinton. The political power couple appealed for cash donations of even the smallest amounts, wired directly to their foundation, and they kept 90 percent of it for themselves. What infrastructure they did bring to Haiti was to corrupt business ventures that directly benefited friends of the Clintons. Today outside the Clinton Foundation in New York, Haitian immigrants still protest the fraud that is Bill and Hillary Clinton.
D’Souza’s film is well-shot, visibly interesting and full of well-documented facts. Courtroom scenes, jail scenes and other instances were clearly filmed as recreations, but there are plenty of newsreel and direct historical quotations to back up the filmmakers’ claims. The film is so well made that even the most casual fans of history would enjoy it. Everyone should see this movie, especially minorities and long time Democrats. Indeed, Democratic leaders should fear this movie as it comes out directly following the Republican National Convention and directly preceding the Democratic National Convention.
There is a poignant moment towards the end of the film that comes with a call to action. D’Souza is in a high school gymnasium converted to a polling place. The poll booths are set up in preparation of an election. A visibly distressed D’Souza stands in front of the poll booths. He is eager to vote in the election, but cannot. Despite his concern for his new home country, he cannot vote in its elections. His felony conviction prevents it!
“I cannot vote in the upcoming election!” he says. “But you can!”
D’Souza does a lot for his chosen nation, the United States. He became a citizen here to escape the corruption of his home nation of India, only to find corruption that threatens to swallow the nation that he loves. He admits he made a mistake. He attempted to help a friend as she was running for public office. He broke the law. It was not intentional. But the Obama administration could not let an opportunity go to waste, and the court made an example of him, the punishment far outweighing the crime. It is the opinion of us here at The American Millennium that D’Souza, with his political activism, his patriotism and love of country, and his community service, that it is time that D’Souza is recognized for his contribution. His rights to vote and own a gun should be returned and the next president of the United States, I hope it is Donald Trump, should honor D’Souza with a Presidential Medal of Freedom.
That is unlikely if Hillary wins. Indeed, all of us will suffer if the Democrat party wins this election season. The Democrat Party hasn’t changed. They’ve just changed the con, and if they continue to be the party in power, all of America will be its victims.
I rate this movie very highly. If you want to see great action, go see Star Trek. If you love America and are concerned for its future, go see Hillary’s America!
D’Souza recently attended the RNC in Cleveland where his film was pre-screened. Watch this great interview with Brian Engleman of The New American Media below.

The American Millennium
This column will be my thoughts on why I am supporting Donald Trump for president.
I have to say he was not my first choice. He wasn’t my third choice. But he is the presumptive nominee of my party and I will go along with the party because I can’t stand Hillary Clinton and her sleazy husband Bill.
I imagined that if I came out to a public area in my town of Rochester and I announced over a megaphone that I supported Trump, and if I invited other people to debate me on the benefits or problems of my candidate over theirs and vice versa, I would start a riot. Can you imagine? Suppose I brought a megaphone to the Thursday’s on First events here in town and just said, “listen up people! I just want to talk about why I will vote for Donald Trump!” and then offer the megaphone to anyone who wanted to debate me, what do you suppose would happen? I’d probably be shouted down at best and someone in the crowd would probably throw something at me or assault me. Guaranteed!
It’s become crazy at these political rallies and it’s just nuts. People at Trump rallies have been struck, they’ve had eggs thrown at them. They’ve been injured, tackled, whatever. If you are assaulting people over their political speech in this country you need to go to jail and be prosecuted under the same laws as the mobsters. You are intimidating people for their political speech and you are abusive and need to go to jail. I don’t care if you are a Trump supporter or not. You hit someone else because they support someone you are opposed to, you go to jail. If you disagree, write a blog, attend a rally, join a campaign and march, but don’t be hitting people.
I see that Bernie Sanders had a rally here and it was quite well attended. Nobody burned the place down, good. What if the future president Donald Trump had a rally, would it go as well? Hey Bernie supporters, wanna debate me? Great. I’m game. I’m totally bringing up Venezuela. You millennials probably couldn’t find that country on the map.
I think that you really see the true character of people or lack there of during the political season. People go crazy. The democratic socialists love their candidate and his ideology but they don’t have the emotional maturity to listen to another person’s views with respect and then debate them with cogent thoughts of their own. Likewise there are Trump supporters who are exactly the same way in reverse. There was that video of an old cowboy punching a black guy in the face. He later said that if the man he assaulted came back he might have to kill him. That is a terrorist and he needs to go to jail.
Likewise there was a lady that had eggs thrown at her because she supported Trump. A kid was tackled in public by a black fellow because he was a Trump supporter. Another guy had blood dripping down his face because he supports Trump. Enough already.
If you support the other guy or gal, grab a microphone and debate me, but don’t be assaulting people. Your first amendment rights don’t include assaulting people with a different opinions.
I think Trump will be a better candidate than Hillary because quite frankly I think that a Hillary presidency will be an endorsement of the last 8 years of Obama and I can’t stand the thought of that. It’s time for a change. Trump has run successful companies. He’s also had bankruptcies, but Hillary would run the country into the ground. I think Donald Trump will restructure the economy and there will be a little pain, but ultimately I think it will be for the ultimate good.
One of the biggest gripes I have with Hillary is her support of Australian style gun confiscation here in the country. Nobody can deny we have a problem with violence in this country. But you can’t blame lawful gun owners or gun manufacturers for that. Should we sue baseball manufacturers. Their products cause more injuries and deaths than guns. Don’t get me started about cars. Violence is in the heart and to change that you have to change the heart. Like John the Baptist said, “change from within”. You look at Europe with their massive problems with immigrants from Syria and the Middle East and what do you see, people turning over cars, looting and destroying businesses, throwing rocks at cops. Do we want that here? No.
I totally support a temporary moratorium on immigration from Muslim countries for the time being. Jimmy Carter did it and nobody called him a racist. I think it should be one of the first things on a Trump agenda. Also, build the wall. I’m tired of people coming here illegally. People call me a racist because of that. I’m not a racist. There are billions of people in this world who want and deserve a better life. There are too many people for this country to absorb. We have to help them where they are.
My fiancé who is the love of my life is an immigrant from the Philippines. She came here legally on a Green Card. People who jump the border who come here illegally are slapping people like her square in the face. “Screw you! You were so stupid to pay the money and wait your turn! I’m just going to go to America and take my chances!” My Honeybear loves her country. She also loves this one and wants to live a happy life. We’ve watched with interest the election of Rodrigo Duterte as president of the Philippines. We have hope that he will turn that country around. We are also glad to see Manny Pacquiao the famous Philippine boxer becoming a senator. Congratulations. You can be patriotic about your homeland but still support the laws and traditions of the nation in which live. Someone said, “support the nation you live in or live in the nation you support!” Don’t be waiving a Mexican flag at me while you are living in this country. If you love Mexico so much, feel free to go back. Nobody is out there treading on the Mexican Flag, don’t expect me to be gleeful when you trod on Old Glory. I’m a veteran. I see you do that I’m going to have a few choice comments for you. Trigger warning my little socialist cupcake! You might be offended!
Hillary Clinton had her chance to answer the 3 a.m. phone call. The ambassador Chris Stevens was calling. He’s dead, as well as three others who died along with him. Special Operators dedicating their lives to defending Americans came to their aid and received no support. A four-star combatant commander offered aid and was told to stand down. He proceeded to send aid anyway and was immediately arrested and relieved of command. Who has the authority to stop a four-star general. Barack Obama, the president of the United States, that’s who. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton let those people die and then had the audacity to lie to the faces of their grieving family members, blaming a video which almost nobody saw. That’s why I can’t support Hillary Clinton.
For all of Donald’s flaws one thing is clear. He loves the country and wants it to prosper. I don’t know about the people currently in office. They are terrible and it’s time to change course. Trump doesn’t badmouth cops, he supports them. Hillary badmouths cops. Trump supports the military. Hillary would cut the military. Trump has the endorsement of the NRA. Hillary would disarm us and leave us vulnerable to violence from radicals coming over our borders illegally. Trump has a business back ground and would work the create jobs. Hillary is good at creating jobs for terrorists.
I was a Ted Cruz guy. I still like him. He has a goofy love of the constitution that I admire. But the people have spoken and my party supports Donald Trump, so I will too. That doesn’t mean he has a blank check. I’m frankly pissed off at the Republican Party and its leadership. If they screw up the next four years like they have in the past, I’m going to be their worst nightmare.
Hillary isn’t the answer. The little democratic socialist would bring us an economy like Venezuela, and the libertarian Gary Johnson and his running mate are jokes. I’m holding my nose again and voting for Trump. Please don’t come to my house and try to burn my house down. I have a gun and will be utilizing my second amendment rights.

This column’s purpose is to explain why I endorse Ted Cruz for president of the United States and not Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, and I hope to articulate why he can be as great as Ronald Reagan.
The American Millennium has obtained a full copy of Ted Cruz’s college thesis entitled Clipping the Wings of Angels, which speaks at length about the purposes of the 9th and Tenth amendments to the constitution. In the document Ted explains why it is so necessary to limit the power of government at the federal level and in all possible circumstances return that power to the states or the people. I wish I had permission to release the whole document online so that you can see for yourself the loving way Ted refers to the constitution, but unfortunately I have not been able to secure permission. When Ted is elected president as I hope he will, this should be the first document to be enshrined forever in his presidential library, somewhere in his home state of Texas. The language he uses to refer to the constitution is so laudatory and at times a little dorky. You can see his love of the law and especially the cornerstone of American Law, the US Constitution.
See, unlike the other candidates, Ted Cruz is not in this race for is own gain. He is different in that he doesn’t seek to create a cult of personality like the other candidates; rather he desires to show the people again that our greatness as a people is our adherence in the rule of law and in our commonality with one another. If there is equal protection under the law, if there is fairness and not an over abundance of regulation, if the federal government refrains from always trying to pick winners and losers then the US economy will recover, on Wall Street as well as main street.
When you see Ted speak, some might be turned off by his seemingly inauthentic smile. There is an article that I think accurately explains why some are uneasy with it. He’s like me in that he has the kind of smile that goes the wrong way that might even scare little children. People want to see someone’s face behave a certain way when they smile and if it doesn’t, they don’t quite trust that person. I get that a lot, so I understand it. To understand how Ted Cruz is in person, one should observe him in his candid moments when he is not in front of a camera. The polish comes off, he is more authentic, less controlled, the real Ted comes out. There are photos of Ted Cruz playing with his kids during moments when he is taking a break from the campaign. That is the Ted I trust. He is a man who has time for his children even though he is busy with a very important campaign.
What does Trump with his spare time? Has he ever smiled? Trump is like Barack Obama in that his support is a cult of personality. He is enshrined behind massive walls of people who only tell him what he wants to hear; his political speech has resonated with people concerned about jobs, the economy, the border and immigration. He has tapped into the anger of Americans. But he has not articulated a vision of where he wants to take this country. Trump is a caricature of himself. He always repeats the same words in every speech. “We’re going to make America great again. We’re going to build a wall. It’s going to be a high wall. It’s going to be huge! We are going to win again, even against China!” He says China a lot. When asked about specifics, he has none, because he doesn’t have a plan. All he knows is that it will be “great” if he is president.
Hillary Clinton in contrast is a liar, a thief and a phony. There is no reason anyone should let the Clinton’s back in the White House. They are power hungry and corrupt and she particularly is unlikeable. Why would people in government ever want her as a boss? When Hillary Clinton was First Lady there is talk that people avoided her in the halls. She didn’t want to deal with people, she was terrible, and when she wandered the halls, people would duck into their offices to avoid having to deal with her. She is unpleasant, even with her staff!
When Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, she denied military support for her trusted employees on a difficult mission to Libya where the ambassador and his staff were in constant threat of attack. Watch the You Tube video we created of Rand Paul talking about his questions laid before her on whether or not she read the cables from the ambassador begging for more security help. Hillary granted many requests for frivolous improvements to other embassies, but when it came to enhancing the security of staff, she had no time for it. It is for this reason that we agree with Rand Paul; Hillary Clinton should be permanently precluded from holding public office.
Hillary has always been under tight control. Don’t bother to try to read her college thesis on Saul Alinksi, even though I think even as a conservative, it would be fascinating. Only the privileged are allowed into that college library to read the vaunted document. Barack Obama’s thesis was so hideous; his college advisor threw it out in the trash. So don’t try to dig too deep into their history. You won’t find much of substance.
Hillary Clinton has spent her life in the world of politics. She understands it better than any other one thing. And she has been dishonest and corrupt from the start. Members of her own party threw her off the Nixon investigation because she attempted to break the rules and acted in an unethical and unprofessional manner. Piles of bodies of people once loyal to the Clintons are strewn around so much so that if they were in a room together you might think there was a war or terrorist bombing. If you have something on the Clintons and if it worries them, you can find yourself going missing, a victim of suicide, and your house and personal affects gone through, your personal documents destroyed. That is the real Hillary Clinton.
As for Bill Clinton, who in their right mind wants him wandering around the White House with nothing to do? He is a serial rapist and molester, he can’t keep his hands off the women and they don’t even necessarily have to be pretty. He would be a national embarrassment if they were allowed to return to Washington.
Ted Cruz is not the sexiest most interesting candidate out there today. But he is the one who has the potential to return the nation to the right path. He has a reputation for defending us and our rights in front of the US Supreme Court as solicitor general of Texas and he has won every time. He has protected our religious freedoms, our freedom of speech and our right to self-protection under the Second Amendment. Everyone else still in this race has fought to empower the federal government, not limit it, not return power to the people.
John Kasich is a joke and should get out of the race. He is a republican who believes that government can solve every problem. Ted Cruz is with Ronald Reagan in that he believes government is the problem.
Marco Rubio is a good man with a great story and a hopeful vision for the future. He made a mistake with the immigration issue as a member of the gang of eight and the voters punished him for it. I don’t think he is done with politics. For now perhaps, but his supporters can be reassured that Ted Cruz is the only conservative still in the race who upholds their values and will take their cause. They should throw their support to him now and with luck, Ted Cruz will be the next president of the United States.
A word to republican leaders who talk about a “brokered convention”. Don’t do it. If neither Ted nor Donald get the required number of delegates to seal the nomination that’s fine. Let the delegates haggle at the convention. It’s supposed to be a convention after all, not a coronation. Let the delegates decide and they will select the best candidate for the voters. But don’t, don’t, don’t bend the rules to select someone who had fewer delegates than Ted or Donald, or hasn’t even darkened the campaign trail this cycle. Don’t! If you think that it is you and not the American voter who decides on who is worthy to lead this party, if you think your opinion matters more than ours and you select rather than elect a candidate then I swear to you as a veteran of this nation’s wars that I will get as many friends together and I will burn you out. We will drag you out of your offices, we will burn your buildings, we will banish you from Cleveland and from Washington. We are not the Democrats. We have no super delegates. We trust our voters.
I am a veteran. I swore an oath to defend our constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. My brigade spent the longest number of consecutive days in combat in Iraq, longer than any other unit. The division of which that brigade is a part spend the most number of consecutive days in combat in World War II. When we were in Iraq we monitored and secured free elections in that country, where they didn’t have it for many years. We built schools where girls for the first time in a very long while had the right to an education just like the boys. We built power plants, water treatment plants, schools! We did that for people we didn’t know. How can you assume that having spent so much blood and sweat to secure the future of that country that we would just roll over and let other people steal our future here in our own country. We were extended for the surge and we were winning when I left. Government bureaucrats squandered the success we had there. We are not going to let unelected leaders steal away our future here in our own back yard. So if you want to have a future, obey the will of the delegates and the voters or we will come after you. We took an oath, and since we retired and left the service, no one has relieved us of that oath. We will camp out in Cleveland and in Washington and we will make your lives hell, I swear!
At the end of the day I would rather have Donald Trump be our candidate if it is the will of the people. But if some one emerges from the convention that spent no time on the campaign trail and he or she is nominated, then the electoral process means nothing and we’ve lost our Republic any way. Might as well burn it all down and start fresh. But it doesn’t have to come to that. The party can do the right thing, and the convention can be allowed to work. It must. In the end, who ever emerges from the convention has a better chance to lead the country than Hillary Clinton, and I believe, the only adult in the room, Ted Cruz is the right man to lead our nation into the future.
