The American Millennium
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.
