Finally, Eugene Delguadio inexplicably takes credit for removing full-body scanners from airports and even more inexplicably claims that "the homosexual lobbies fully support the invasive body cavity searches of elderly citizens, small children, young women and the absurd and dangerous X-Ray machines that scan the human form in minute detail."
Glenn Stanton of Focus on the Family accuses Dinesh D'Souza of engaging in "attitudinal bigamy."
Is anyone surprised that Glenn Beck is now paling around with EW Jackson?
Jan Markell of Olive Tree Ministries says "This is an apocalyptic election. It's clearly the most important election in the history of America."
Bryan Fischer reiterates his call to ban immigration from Muslim countries.
James Robison says President Obama Vice-President Biden "have claims of religious beliefs that directly contradict the words and actions of both ... this is intentional political activism directly opposed to a supposed belief, which can only lead to one conclusion: what they claim to believe is not what they actually believe."
Finally, FRC prays against marriage equality: "May God-fearing men and women be moved to make profoundly generous gifts to support marriage protection efforts in these four states.

On the heels of a sex scandal, Dinesh D’Souza announced his resignation today as president of King’s College in New York. D’Souza, star of the nonsensical anti-Obama film 2016: Obama's America and defender of traditional marriage, was recently caught cavorting with a much younger woman while still married to his wife. And now to make matters worse, it appears that his mistress was also married.
Last week, conservative pseudo-intellectual Dinesh D’Souza was featured on a conference call for Rick Scarborough’s 40 Days to Save America. D’Souza said Obama is “attacking the traditional values agenda” by supporting marriage equality and abortion rights, arguing that “Obama doesn’t like traditional Christianity because he identifies it with colonialism.” However, D’Souza’s rhetoric about “traditional morality” may be undermined by the fact that at a recent conference he reportedly shared a hotel room with a woman other than his wife, whom he introduced as his fiancée. D’Souza later admitted to getting engaged to his girlfriend even though he is still married, but denies sharing a hotel room with her at the conference.
Why is Obama on the social issues — and I’m thinking here of abortion, I’m thinking here of gay marriage — why is Obama so aggressive in attacking the traditional values agenda? I think the reason for it is because when Obama thinks about colonialism, about the British and the French who went abroad to conquer other countries, or earlier the Spanish and the Portuguese, I come from a part of India that was a Portuguese colony at one time, I think for Obama colonialism is identified not just with the soldiers but also with the missionaries. Remember it’s the missionaries that went alongside the conquerors, the conquistadors, came to the Americas and worked on converting the Indians and later missionaries went to China, India and Japan. So I think this is the problem, Obama doesn’t like traditional Christianity because he identifies it with colonialism. Obama’s own Christianity is more of a Third World liberation theology, a very different kind of Jeremiah Wright type philosophy, summarized in the idea that America is the rogue nation in the world.
Later, D’Souza said that politics are driven by a moral and spiritual divide that only God can change, grateful that we don’t have “an absentee God like Obama’s dad.”
Ultimately there’s a political divide in this country but underneath that is a moral divide, and underneath that is a spiritual divide. I think that the deepest problems facing America and the West in the end are not political, they are spiritual. This is why it makes sense even as we debate policy issues, even as we debate moral issues, to turn to the maker of the universe, this maker of the universe that isn’t just an absentee God like Obama’s dad, a kind of absentee father who got things going and then took off but a God who cares about each one of us and certainly about our country.
Update: In a recent interview with pastor Jack Hibbs, D'Souza reiterated his theory that Obama supports abortion rights and marriage equality because he has a "pathological hatred for traditional Christianity" because it is a symbol of colonialism and that Democrats are eager to discredit his film because if Obama's worldview is understood, nobody will vote for him:
Update II: The Daily Beast is now reporting that D’Souza has resigned as president of The King’s College, the evangelical school he has led since 2010.
It was not immediately clear whether the board’s decision was driven by the allegations of the affair, or by dissatisfaction with D’Souza’s leadership that had been building at the college for months. At the meeting Thursday, [Chairman of the Board of Trustees Andy] Mills did not discuss the board’s conversation about D’Souza or give reasons for his departure. Representatives for the college did not respond to requests for comment.
According to several sources at the college, members of the King’s faculty and board alike had grown hostile to D’Souza’s presidency over what they saw as a failure to earn his reported million-dollar salary. D’Souza has spent much of the past few months promoting his documentary, 2016: Obama’s America, and his high profile in the media was seen as rarely benefitting the college. It may even have been seen as a detriment: According to a former staffer familiar with the college’s public relations, King’s employees have been explicitly tasked with disentangling D’Souza’s extracurricular activities from the college’s reputation. D’Souza became a non-presence on the college’s official Facebook page throughout 2012, which staffers say was no coincidence.
Sarah Posner brings to us an emerging controversy surrounding Dinesh D’Souza, the conservative pseudo-intellectual who has been on the ReligiousRightmediacircuit pushing his anti-Obama “documentary,” as he is apparently seeing another woman who is not his wife. The evangelical WORLD Magazine reports that D’Souza has been introducing his fellow right-wing activists “a young woman, Denise Odie Joseph II” as his fiancée, even sharing a room with her, while at a conference with Alex McFarland, who interviewed D’Souza when he guest hosted The Janet Mefferd Show. He told WORLD editor Warren Cole Smith that he had filed for divorce from his wife, Dixie, but according to court records he only filed the day Smith spoke to him and “under California law, that starts the clock on a six-month waiting period for divorce.”
D’Souza styles himself as a fierce defender of marriage against gays and lesbians and it appears that Odie Joseph II, seen here with D’Souza’s new book, also has strong views on marriage, cohabitation and divorce. In a post on a conservative blog, she rails against feminists and “RINO men” for ruining marriage and traditional morality. “Feminists/liberals who intended to destroy and transform that sacred cornerstone of American society—the traditional family” she explains, adding that today’s state of the family proves that “the 19th Amendment was never the best idea ever.” She blames feminist academics for increases in adultery, failed marriages and cohabitation, and even goes on to say that America’s children “are going the way of black ghetto society” thanks to feminists and Ke$ha.
RINO Republicans are analogous to fathers who proudly proclaim their conservativeness at dinner parties or perhaps during early afternoon phone calls to El Rusbo’s show, but let their “independently-minded” wives (translation–women who get their marching orders from St. Oprah or more recently, The View ) pump their teenagers full of birth control and encourage their daughters to live the lives for which their bra-burning foremothers fought so valiantly. Indeed, this particular post was inspired by one such RINO Dad I know exceedingly well, at exactly one such dinner party, several years ago. RINO Dads are those guys who will sheepishly to proudly, fill out Republican ballots on Election Day while their wives openly mark their support for things like, “freedom of choice” and “freedom from poverty.” What most people don’t realize, and indeed what I didn’t realize until I blocked out the “madding crowd[ii],” is that these women and their RINO men are like a vast national living history museum, pictographically illustrating exactly why the 19th Amendment was never the best idea ever and in fact, more closely resembles the greatest show on Earth. Think Ringling Bros[iii]. If these modern families keep at it, museums telling the hieroglyphical tales of our civilization might be all that is left of us.
In the 1960s and 1970s, feminists and liberals of other stripes started pointing out the hypocrisies of what they termed “patriarchy.” Time and again, they urged us to recognize human’s natural “animal instincts” in relation to traditional morality and therefore, to reject traditional institutions such as marriage as outdated because now these intellectual elites had things like biology and sociology, things like women’s studies, gender studies, and critical race theory, to back them up. They pointed to infidelity or infamous sexual desire surveys (conducted by homosexuals)[vi] among traditionally married couples to “prove” their theses. Limb by limb, they tore the traditional family to shreds until they reduced us to the shining bastion of zoological (but even animals aren’t this bad and do not depend on the state to care for them)cesspool equality that we have now in every American ghetto and which is seeping out into the middle and upper classes in less animated ways. These people, like their European counterparts, are the ones who will go extinct. For instance, we have raised an entire generation of boys who, permanently scarred by their parents’ divorces(perhaps over issues such as infidelity) cannot emotionally connect or commit to any one woman in any meaningful way and so we also have an entire generation of girls for whom that coveted diamond solitaire comes later and later in life, with more and more contractual caveats (prenups). Somehow, when it happens after 5 years of living together, after 1 year of non-exclusive dating followed by another 3 years of recurring breakups over the male’s unwillingness to “commit,” getting that ring for which you girls will surely be paying your hard-earned half, doesn’t feel quite like the fairytale it used to.
Since I do not trust the U.S. Census Bureau to report accurate or clear statistics[ix] (See US Census Bureau Admits ‘It Artificially Inflated the Number of Same Sex Couples’ link below)I will not try to provide any statistics on the number of single-mom or grandparent households in the U.S. today, or their relative poverty (both cultural and financial). However, it is fair to say that the numbers reflect an unquestionable victory for the feminists/liberals who intended to destroy and transform that sacred cornerstone of American society—the traditional family.
If they took a moment to actually listen to the music their children listened to, or a moment to look at the way their children dress, they would realize that they are going the way of black ghetto society. They would realize that by failing to do the job their foremothers cherished, their wives, who don’t even know enough to scoff at Madeline Dahlgren and who should be the proud, moral guardians of their homes, are leading their RINO (and real Republican civilization) to their inevitable demises. Non-black youth today speaks the language of bitches and hoes as well as black youth and non-black youth males expect the same level of promiscuity from their female peers. For example, Ke$ha (apparently the traditional alphabet has gone the way of cursive, who needs it anyway? Just another archaic trapping of grace and beauty…useless) is a young, white female who reportedly wakes up in the morning feeling like the black rap hero, P Diddy. She has enjoyed a string of top ten hits which, if you live in America, you would have definitely heard, even if you had no intention of doing so. Her breakthrough video, “Tik Tok[i]” (which incidentally utilizes about as many syllables as an ADHD-ridden culture can handle) features her waking up in her parent’s bathtub, filthy, fully-dressed, and hung-over after a long night of partying. Without bothering to attend to hygiene (granola-brand feminists should love this), Ke$ha, who trendily refers to the police as “po po” and who is apparently still young enough to be living with her parents, drunkenly stumbles downstairs to her well-dressed, clean-cut, conservative-looking nuclear family, sneers at them in all her godforsaken glory, and walks out slamming the door on her way to play with innocent looking (until the day they meet Ke$ha) elementary school-aged children on the block.
Joseph Farah wonders if President Obama was on drugs during the first debate.
It really is amazing that the Right treats Dinesh D'Souza as if he is some sort of intellectual.
Patrick Mahoney says Christians "must pray against the re-election of President Obama based on his radical and extremist policies on abortion, his redefinition of marriage, his crushing of religious freedom through the HHS Mandate and his lack of commitment to the oppressed and needy."
Peter LaBarbera reports that his organization has had its tax-exempt status restored.
D’Souza: You know, Obama's been boasting, certainly he deserves credit for the bin Laden operation, remember the bin Laden operation is different from than these Muslim jihadists in Iraq or Afghanistan or even the Palestinians in Israel, I think Obama views those guys like freedom fighters, fighting to liberate their country from US occupation. But bin Laden is not defending his own country, he came to our country to knock down a bunch buildings and so from Obama's point of view he's just a gangster, he's like an international serial killer. So there's no inconsistency with calling Obama an anti-colonialist on the one hand and yet saying he approved the bin Laden killing on the other.
The filmmaker also told Meferd that Obama is “actively supporting” a “bid by the radical Muslims” to create an Islamic caliphate. D’Souza also said that Obama has sidelined Egypt’s military in favor of the Muslim Brotherhood aligned president, not mentioning that his administration just offered $1.5 billion to Egypt’s military for defense cooperation. D’Souza even claimed that Obama considers the US to be an “evil” world power: “So for [Obama], it’s not Iran that’s a bad guy, it’s not North Korea, we’re the bad guy, and he sees his job amazingly as one of containing the United States. I think he believes in American exceptionalism, he just thinks that we’re exceptionally evil, we’re the guys that need to be controlled.”
D’Souza: I think what we're seeing is very troubling, we're seeing a real bid by the radical Muslims to do something that they haven't done in 400 years which is to attempt to restore Islam as a global power and they see an opportunity to do this thanks to the Obama administration's complete abdication of responsibility, one by one our allies are falling in the region, one by one our adversaries are coming to power, and Obama doesn't just seem unbothered by this he seems to be actively supporting it.
Mefferd: He does. I compared his statement in both written and on TV with what Mitt Romney did today. What a difference, Romney expressed we are Americans, we stand for freedom of speech, we will not tolerate that sort of thing; we didn't hear that language from Obama, which really dovetails with what you said in 2016, he's not that mad about it perhaps.
D’Souza: No, there are some people, and some conservatives too, who think Obama's an amateur, he's a blunderer, he doesn't know what he's doing, and you can say all right a year and a half ago when he supported the democracy movement in Egypt he thought it might result in a pro-American government in Egypt, but now he can see very clearly that no, the Muslim Brotherhood candidate won the presidential election, they won the parliamentary election, the bottom line of it is that Egypt is moving into the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood. What does Obama do? So right now there's a power struggle going on between the military and the Brotherhood, and Obama is clearly on the side of the Brotherhood, he's telling the military, 'hey guys, you better turn over power or the US is going to cut off aid.' So Obama is actively accelerating the transition of power in Egypt into the hands of the largest organization of radical Islam in the world.
Mefferd: A lot of listeners will hear you say that Dinesh and ask, why would Obama want an Islamic caliphate to come to power?
D’Souza: Well I think for Obama there is a simple goal: reduce the global power of the United States, in other words, reduce America's footprint in the world. Why? Not because Obama is a traitor or a secret Muslim or something, rather he wants to reduce America's footprint in the world because he feels that we've been stepping on the world. So for him, it's not Iran that's a bad guy, it's not North Korea, we're the bad guy, and he sees his job amazingly as one of containing the United States. I think he believes in American exceptionalism, he just thinks that we're exceptionally evil, we're the guys that need to be controlled.
While speaking to Phyllis Schlafly on Eagle Forum Live, Dinesh D’Souza continued to lay out his wild and dishonest conspiracies about President Obama and even argued that President Obama doesn’t have any “interest in so-called civil rights or black issues.” That’s because, D’Souza explains, Obama had a Kenyan father and a white American mother and therefore “hasn’t had the African American experience.” In fact, “his policies have actually been very harmful, economically harmful to be sure, for Black America.”
Caller: I got a question. Isn’t Obama’s thinking a product of civil rights…anti-white, anti-Western pro-equality? Isn’t Obama’s thinking actually civil rights philosophy?
D’Souza: That’s a good question, and I used to think so but I think the answer I have to give you now is no. Remember that Obama, I mean Obama yes he’s the first black, African American president, but he hasn’t had the African American experience. And by that I mean he’s never sat at a segregated lunch counter. He’s not even descended from anyone who has. He’s not descended from slaves. His father was, well I’m tempted to say an immigrant, but he wasn’t even an immigrant, I’m an immigrant, you know immigrants come to this country to stay. Barack Obama, Sr. came to America to study and go back home and he did. So, his father’s a Kenyan, his mom is a white girl from Kansas, you know, where’s the African American part?
D’Souza: So what’s kind of strange is that a lot of African Americans say well I’m for Obama because he’s like me and so on, not realizing that first of all, Obama you know has had no interest in so-called civil rights or black issues, and second of his policies have actually been very harmful, economically harmful to be sure, for Black America.
D’Souza goes on to claim that Obama was mentored by anti-American communists and terrorists, but no one in the U.S. knows about it because the media is intentionally trying to “suppress information that’s harmful to Obama because they want him to win again.” Seemingly fixated on finding out the names of Obama’s ex-girlfriends, D’Souza claims that the public hasn’t learned the identities of the President’s ex-girlfriends because they likely came from the same group of “radical, revolutionary and truly dangerous characters” that he had “been hanging out with.”
D’Souza: Conservatives are energized, they feel they have new information when they see this film. But I think even independents are writing up and saying that they’re shaken by the film. They just didn’t know and they become a little furious that all these facts about Obama that are laid out in the film have somehow not been presented to them for the past four years. So vital information that would enable them to attack Obama is not being given. And I think it’s because there are a lot of people in the mainstream press, you know the New York Times, Chris Matthews at MSNBC—a lot of these guys they become, they stop become being journalists, they basically become, in a way, a publicist for Obama because they also think it’s morally vital for the United States for Obama to get a second term. So they’ll suppress information that’s harmful to Obama because they want him to win again.
Schafly: Well, we’ve never had a president that so, so little is known. I mean, all kinds of things we don’t know, such as his grades in school and how he got into Columbia and what he did and why we don’t hear from his classmates…nobody seems to remember him in these schools.
D’Souza: That’s all true Phyllis you’re absolutely right, and to me the more important and damaging information that we don’t know are the people who have influenced him, you know who have basically been shaping his mind over the past 20-30 years. In my book I have a chapter called Obama’s Founding Father, and we find out in that the five people who influenced him. Well one was a former Communist, Frank Marshall Davis in Hawaii, one was a member of Palestine National Council, a guy Edward Said, that Commentary Magazine has called a professor of terror. Another was a Brazilian socialist at Harvard Law School. This is a guy who has called for India, Russia, and China to quote gang up on the United States. Then we have a domestic terrorist Bill Ayres. And finally the incendiary preacher Jeremiah Wright. So what a group, I mean we’ve never had a president before who has been you know tutored or mentored by a card-carrying member of the Communist Party, by a guy who tried to blow up the Pentagon. So why isn’t this information the lead story on CBS Evening News. And the answer is those guys just don’t want the American people to know about it.
D’Souza: David Meredith in his biography of Obama, talked to a girl who was supposed to be Obama’s girlfriend. But of course her story about Obama doesn’t match the one that Obama writes about in his own book, Dreams from My Father. So Meredith goes to Obama and says well is this the girl? And Obama goes no, no, no, I had many girlfriends, and I made a composite of them. And I’m thinking wait a minute, where are those girlfriends? How come they haven’t come forward? How come no journalist has ever interviewed them? So with Obama, you know you have all these black holes surrounding this guy. It’s very shady, and Obama himself isn’t telling and I think the reason he isn’t telling is that he’s been hanging out with the radical, revolutionary and truly dangerous characters.
While promoting his new movie about President Obama on conservative radio shows, Dinesh D’Souza accused Obama of viewing the U.S. as an “evil empire” while sympathizing with anti-American terrorists.
D’Souza told Frank Gaffney on Secure Freedom Radio that Obama “subscribes to a very radical Third World ideology” and that he thinks “from Obama’s point of view we are the ‘evil empire.’”
D’Souza: We normally think we’re having a policy debate between liberals and conservatives who agree about goals but disagree about means. I think when you’re dealing with a Bill Clinton for example that is true, we all want a prosperous economy, we all want America to be a force for freedom in the world, we’d like America to stay number one as long as possible. I think Obama stands outside this consensus and he does so not because he’s a traitor but because he subscribes to a very radical Third World ideology that sees America has the rogue nation in the world. You’ll remember Reagan’s phrase ‘the evil empire’ referring to the Soviet Union, I think from Obama’s point of view we are the ‘evil empire,’ we are the one who needs to be contained.
In an interview with Janet Mefferd, D’Souza claimed that Obama “is weirdly sympathetic to Muslim jihadis who are captured in Iraq or Afghanistan” and “views those guys in favorable terms.” D’Souza says Obama thinks America is an “evil power” and sees “the Muslims who are fighting against America” as “freedom fighters.”
Mefferd: What do you think, a lot of people have talked quite a bit about to the degree to which Obama will reach out to the Muslims, give them a pass, give them special treatment, how does that fit into the whole narrative about anti-colonialism?
D’Souza: It fits in this way Janet, because I think Obama is weirdly sympathetic to Muslim jihadis who are captured in Iraq or Afghanistan, giving them constitutional rights, wanting to close down Guantanamo or when Obama keeps taking the Palestinian position against Israel, some people think that the reason he does this is because he must be a secret Muslim himself. I think that’s wrong. But what I do think Obama thinks is he thinks, ‘look, America is the evil power occupying these poor Third World countries, so the Muslims who are fighting against America are freedom fighters, they’re like Mandela, they’re like Gandhi, they’re like Obama’s own dad fighting to push the British out of Kenya.’ He views those guys in favorable terms and he sees America, not Iran or North Korea, but America as the rogue nation that has to be pulled back.
According to D’Souza, this is all because of Obama’s lefty mom who “wanted to marry a Third World anti-American guy” and “cultivated in Obama this sort of anti-capitalist and somewhat anti-American ideology.” D’Souza explains that Obama’s mom “rebelled against her family and her church and her country” and saw “America as a force for evil in the world,” and Obama learned from her and his leftist “surrogate fathers” a “Third World ideology.”
D’Souza: Actually the mom, Obama’s mom, whom Obama portrays as this Midwestern girl from Kansas, but really no, she became an atheist and a leftist and at times even almost a communist, she would say things like ‘what’s wrong with communism?’ and she wanted to marry a Third World anti-American guy and in succession she married two of them. She was the one that cultivated in Obama this sort of anti-capitalist and somewhat anti-American ideology and then of course Obama, once it took, throughout his life would go looking for other guys, mentors, surrogate fathers if you will, who are like his dad and like his mom and then he would study under them and learn chapter and verse of this Third World ideology.
Mefferd: So interesting his mom, a lot of people may say, why would she deliberately seek out a Third World anti-capitalist?
D’Souza: That seems so odd doesn’t it? But it happens in America sometimes, it certainly happened in the ‘60s. Obama’s mom was sort of a ‘60s girl before the ‘60s, she rebelled against her family and her church and her country. In a way, she began to see America as a force for evil in the world.
Dinesh D’Souza is out with a movie that is supposed to vet Obama, playing to the conservative activists’ laughable claims that Obama never received any serious scrutiny throughout his political career. While speaking to Alex McFarland, who was filling in for talk show host Janet Mefferd yesterday, D’Souza said that Obama is “the most unvetted man, president, in modern American history,” because he hasn’t released his SAT or LSAT scores, college transcripts, the topic of thesis paper and a list of the names of his ex-girlfriends. As FactCheck.org notes, colleges are prohibited from sharing their students’ records with the public, and we actually do know the topic of Obama’s thesis paper (nuclear disarmament). There have even been extensive stories about his relationship with one of his ex-girlfriends. But until we know all of their names, D’Souza seems to think, we really know nothing about the President!
So there’s a real chord out—striking a real chord out here, and I think the reason is people are just hungry for new information about Obama and that this film does provide. Very often we hear critiques of Obama but not new facts about Obama. Remember there’s so much unknown about this guy, right? Let’s put aside the birther issue, I mean, what were Obama’s grades at Occidental College? Unknown. What was his SAT score for getting into college? Unknown. What was his GPA at Columbia? Unknown. What was his thesis about? Unknown. What was his law school test, his LSAT score, for getting into Harvard law school? Unknown. Who were his friends at Columbia? Unknown. He talks about having a bunch of girlfriends, where are they? What are their names? Unknown. So here’s a guy surrounded by black holes in his biography, he’s the most unvetted man, president, in modern American history.
Molen was on the program to discuss a recent incident in which a scheduled speech he was to deliver to some high school students was supposedly canceled because of his conservative views, but after the interview, David Barton and Rick Green talked about how excited they were about his forthcoming film, with Barton revealing that Texas Governor Rick Perry was so enamored with it that he has "agreed to raise millions to put this thing in theaters":
Green: Well this new project he's doing - you know we had Dinesh on when he wrote the book "The Roots of Obama's Rage." I love Dinesh D'Souza, I think he's the C.S. Lewis of our day, just a great guy. But to make this a movie now that's going to reach far more people that's actually going to be in theaters even.
Barton: Well, I was just with Governor Perry and Governor Perry has agreed to raise millions to put this thing in theaters. He is committed to this thing in a big way ...
Green: To getting the truth out there for people to really know ...
Barton: He said it's phenomenal ... because they called him and asked him to help and he said "is it okay if I see the movie first before I agree to raise [money]?" And so he saw it and, man he is all over this thing.
