2016 Movie by Dinesh D'Souza

Princess Nagsalot & I went out for a rare movie night yesterday evening, to see Obama's America: 2016.  We thought it hit the Corruptocrat-In-Chief square between the eyes.

I don't remember ever going to a documentary in the theatres before, but this was worth it...even the $9 a pop cover charge.  We went to a 10-plex theatre, and I believe the empty parking lot (relatively so, maybe 20 cars total) was as much testament to the damage Obama's economic policies have done to how Americans spend their disposable income, as anything in the film.

The theatre showing the film was empty when we went in, five minutes before showtime, and only one other couple sat for this Saturday night at 9:10 showing.  It was nice to have a semi-private showing, but I was sad (and told the other couple so, afterward) that the place wasn't packed.

I think everyone should see this film before going into the voting both this November.  Because, as the filmmakers say, " him or not, do you really know him?"

There isn't any ranting between opposing parties (ala FoxNews, et al), but just methodical historical & cultural analysis by a scholar whose background is remarkably similar to Obama's.

At the end of the film, the producers paint a rather bleak picture of a "post-Obama" America, should he win a 2nd term.  I defy anyone to find holes in his logic.

Consider this point: After Ahmadinijad's Iranian election, Iranian citizens revolted, thinking they had a sympathetic figure in the White House.  They were wrong.  America did not come back them up, as they'd hoped.  By contrast, witness all the violent protests currently occurring in the Middle East and North Africa.  The difference for those folks?

They DO have a sympathetic ear in Washington.  And Dinesh D'Souza tells you why.

Gather your friends and family, and go see this film.

Flight 93 Memorial In Shanksville Memorializes The Terrorists

I recently said in a comment on another blog that, "Until there are no Islamic terrorists, ALL of them are terrorists."  I'd extrapolate this to include: Until there is no such thing as Sharia Law or apologists to Islam, ALL of Islam is an abomination & an afront to civilization.

The "Crescent of Embrace" is being built in Shanksville.  A majority of it has been completed.  It is STILL a memorial to the terrorists.  I refused to help build this thing, and remain steadfastly opposed to it.  Good American men died bringing that plane down.  And Paul Murdoch's design serves to dishonor them with repeated and consistant Muslim imagery.

9/11: New Park Service images prove the Crescent of Embrace memorial to Flight 93 is unchanged Crescent and star
The original Crescent of Embrace design for the Flight 93 memorial (left) was laid out in the configuration of an Islamic crescent and star flag (right). The crash site sits between the tips of the giant crescent, in the position of the star on an Islamic flag.

When this apparent symbol of Islamic triumph caused a national uproar seven years ago the Memorial Project (a public-private entity overseen by the Park Service) promised to change the design, but as demonstrated by the images below, they never did make any significant changes:

Above: original Crescent of Embrace design. Below: a frame from the Park Service's new virtual fly-by of the Circle of Embrace "re-design" as it is being built. (Comparison image thanks to MaxK.)

The most significant change is the few extra trees that are being planted outside the mouth of the original crescent (starting at the crescent tip on the right, where the flight path symbolically "breaks the circle," and continuing down behind the Sacred Ground Plaza that marks the crash site). These few trees supposedly turn the crescent into a circle, but as you can see, they do no such thing, but only apply the most minor window dressing to what is still a bare naked Islamic-shaped crescent.
