The Other Anti-Obama Film

Although the Associated Press and ABC’s Nightline program have taken apart Dinesh D’Souza’s film, “2016: Obama’s America,” another film about the President is strangely getting the silent treatment from the major media. This film, “Dreams from My Real Father,” explores in detail the relationship that Obama had with Frank Marshall Davis, a Communist Party member suspected by the FBI to be a Soviet agent.

The film was being shown this week at the Troublemaker Fest, a film and entertainment festival held during the Republican National Convention in Tampa. The D’Souza film was also being shown at the same location.

Joel Gilbert, the director of the film, has been challenging the media to review his film. “Obama has a deeply disturbing family background, which he intentionally hid, in order to obscure a Marxist political foundation,” Gilbert says. “While voters will overlook some fudging by politicians, promoting a false family background to hide a Marxist agenda irreconcilable with American values is a totally unacceptable manipulation of the electorate.”

Gilbert has traveled to Hawaii on several occasions, in order to conduct fact-finding on the ground. He obtained access to police files and interviewed retired Honolulu police detectives and former friends of Davis. His film features shocking examples of pornography from Davis, including nude photos of Obama’s mother. The latter suggests an illicit relationship between Obama’s mother and Davis, leading to the most shocking charge—that Davis was in fact Obama’s real father.

On Thursday night, ABC News Nightline followed the Associated Press with a critique of the D’Souza film. Nightline reporter David Wright said D’Souza “argues Obama is motivated by an effort to please the radical father he barely knew, a man who has been dead for nearly 25 years.”

As AIM has noted, this is the main flaw in the film, and the media have seized upon it in order to discredit any discussion of the foreign influences that guide Obama’s thinking and policies.

D’Souza took Obama at his word that Barack Hussein Obama, the “Kenyan goat herder,” was his father. However, D’Souza does include a brief interview in his film with Paul Kengor, author of The Communist, which is about Davis and the Obama-Davis relationship.

Gilbert tells AIM that the assertion that Obama assumed the alleged anti-colonialism dream of the Kenyan Barack Obama is indeed “a logical stretch at best,” as AP contended in its scathing review.

Gilbert goes on, “As presented in evidence in my new film, “Dreams from My Real Father,” Obama’s real biological father was Frank Marshall Davis. President Obama’s story of his early childhood has been proven false by multiple researchers and documentation…The evidence points to a sham marriage only between the Kenyan student and Obama’s mother, Ann Dunham, to cover up an illicit affair between Dunham and Frank Marshall Davis.”

The AP review of “2016: Obama’s America” ignored D’Sousa’s interview with Kengor, which presents incontrovertible facts about the Obama-Davis relationship.

In terms of family history, Gilbert notes that Obama was partially raised, by his own account, by Frank Marshall Davis from ages 9-18. This is alluded to in Obama’s own book, Dreams from My Father, with 22 references to “Frank,” later identified as Davis. “The fact that Obama arrived at Occidental College at age 18 admittedly as a committed revolutionary Marxist, ‘to study with the Marxist professors,’ points to an indoctrination in Marxism by Frank Marshall Davis during his formative years,” Gilbert adds.

Gilbert maintains that Frank Marshall Davis was the biological and ideological father, “and remains so today.”

He said, “Obama’s policies in office mirror Davis’s Marxist world view of evil straw men oppressing the proletarian masses, the ‘top 1 percent’ and ‘the breathtaking greed of a few.’”

He said that the Associated Press and other news organizations “should engage in real journalism and report on the evidence in my film and evidence other researchers have produced which demonstrate that Barack Obama built his political career upon a fairy tale.”

Summing up, Gilbert contends that Obama is a “Red Diaper Baby,” the child of a CPUSA member. “This is a known phenomenon in the radical left—many of the leaders of the SDS and Weather Underground were children of Communist Party USA members, including Kathy Boudin and Jeff Jones,” he points out.

During an appearance at the National Press Club, Gilbert said the media are “intentionally suppressing the truth about Barack Obama’s history and agenda.”

Gilbert, however, has been appearing on many radio talk shows, including most recently the Savage Nation with Michael Savage. He told Savage that people watching the film during the GOP convention were absolutely astonished by the revelations and angry that the mainstream media are not covering the film.

News organizations are afraid to be the first to cover it, Gilbert told Savage. He explained that they are waiting for somebody else to cover it, so they can then “cover them covering it.”

This is what passes for “investigative reporting” from the media.

Why its not a good idea to make the enemy aware of their mistakes.

Conscience of a Conservative

Here is a perfect example why a “goody-two-shoes” attitude doesn’t win any wars. Mitt Romney, please take notice. While you and Paul Ryan try to campaign as a pair of good guys, taking the high road, be aware that your enemy is out there planting IEDs along your path. And they hope you trip over them both figuratively and literally.

Previous news announcements said that 20,000 Muslims were planing a staged event at the Democratic National Convention next week. Many conservative bloggers, myself included, (see What things may come. Will there be earth shattering revelations made at the Democratic National Convention? Aug.24th.) predicted that the DNC was so blinded by their love for the Muslim-in-Chief Barack Hussein Obama, that they were almost turning the convention over to the pro-Islamists, the atheists and the perverts. And they are having a Muslim cleric give some sort of invocation as well. I viewed this action as one that would have an enormous backlash against the Democratic Party and their faithful followers.

Anyway, one pro-Christian group called the Florida Family Association was so alarmed at the Muslim presence that they started a campaign to make the Democrats change their minds. It may appear that they had some success because FFA just reported that the scheduled Muslim event called “Jumah at the DNC” has been removed from the DNC web site. But to make things worse, the Florida Family Association is bragging about their success. It just so happens that giving strategic advise to the enemy is the same as give “aid and comfort” and that is Treason, no matter if you are motivated by Christian principles or not. I wrote FFA the following email:

Why the heck would you be happy to report that the DNC has dropped the Jumma event from their calendar? Were you acting like some misguided Christian Missionaries trying to convert the savages? Those savages happen to be the enemies of our country.

Don’t you realize that the DNC was on the verge of burning themselves out with their own ego-maniacal inflammatory stand on pro-Islamic rhetoric?

I was hopping that the majority of Democrats delegates at the convention would be shocked at this display and would return home further disillusioned with their party.

Now anyone who doesn’t see the upcoming election as a deciding point on the future of our Constitutional Republic must still have their heads buried in the sports pages of the newspaper. We are in the early stages of a war to save America and the Democrats who have so whole-heartily embraced Socialism are the enemy. To carry the point further, anyone who gives strategic advise to the enemy is not on our side. For example, if you see one of the enemy doing something very unsafe do you warn him or let him hurt himself?

So now, here is the FFA announcement and the email congratulating them on their victory:

Jumah Muslim prayer event for 20,000 Muslims removed from DNC web site calendar.

What is so disheartening about the so-called “Jumah at the DNC” is that it has thus far gone unnoticed or ignored by the mainstream press.

Florida Family Association sent out an email alert on August 29, 2012 which reported three sub headlines one of which stated: DNC approves Jumah for 20,000 Muslims. The DNC portion of the email alert is posted below.

The email alert and Floridafamily.org web site provided a link to the DNC web site calendar of events which at that time and up until late afternoon on August 30, 2012 included the Juma event. However, the Juma event has been removed from the DNC web site calendar. A supporter also took note of this change and submitted the email posted below to Florida Family Association.

Florida Family Association is NOT stating here the Jumah event has by any means been cancelled. It appears that some officials may not have liked the attention the DNC calendar was receiving on the internet regarding the Jumah event. While it may be a good sign that they are uncomfortable with this type of situation garnering attention allowing it to take place off the grid is not good either.

Subject: “Jumma at the DNC” has just been removed from the DNC website.
I thought you may be interested to know that. “Jumma at the DNC” has just been removed from the DNC website! It was still there 5.30 PM on 8/30/2012 and at 6.30 PM it was gone! I looked everywhere but it’s not listed anymore.

Looks like the DNC are getting cold feet!

This is a great victory!


Barack Hussein Obama and his pro-communist henchmen are all out planting IED’s hoping that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will trip over them, both figuratively and literally. They are showing no sense of decency in what they will do to stay in power. They even want to restrict our active duty Armed Forces from having a few extra days to submit their absentee ballots and have brought lawsuits against some states that have tried to allow it. So if you happen to see a Democrat handling a potentially deadly weapon the wrong way, KEEP QUIET ABOUT IT.
