Obama’s America: Unmaking the American Dream

America as we know it—wealthy, powerful, assertive—is not what Obama wants.
He wants a smaller America, a poorer America, an America unable to exert its will, an America happy to be one power among many, an America in decline so that other nations might rise—all in the name of global fairness. To Obama, the hated “one percent” isn’t just wealthy Americans; it is America itself. In Obama’s view, America needs to be taken down a notch.

That is the startling conclusion of best-selling author Dinesh D’Souza. Building on his previous New York Times bestseller on Barack Obama, The Roots of Obama’s Rage—which Newt Gingrich called, “Stunning…the most profound insight I have read in the last six years”—D’Souza shows how Obama’s goal to downsize America is in plain sight but ignored by everyone. D’Souza lays out what Obama plans to do in a second administration—a makeover of America so drastic that the “shining city on a hill” will become a shantytown in a rather dangerous global village. Arresting in its presentation and sobering in its conclusions  Obama’s America is essential reading for those who want to change America’s course before it’s too late.

In Obama’s America you’ll learn:

  • How Obama plans to use debt as a weapon of economic mass destruction to downsize the United States
  • How a second Obama term could be fatal to Israel—and to American interests in the Middle
  • A superpower shorn: why drastic defense cuts are only the beginning
  • How Obama plans to make us more dependent on foreign energy suppliers
  • What the world will be like when America is a debt-ridden second tier economy and other countries, like China, India, and even Brazil, are wealthier and dominant.

Arresting in its presentation and sobering in its conclusions, Obama’s America is essential reading for those who want to change America’s course before it’s too late.

From the Back Jacket:

Obama is not merely the presiding instrument of American decline, he is the architect of American decline. He wants America to be downsized. He wants Americans to consume less, and he would like to see our standard of living decline relative to that of other nations.

He seeks a diminished footprint for America in the world. He detests America’s traditional allies, like Britain and Israel, and seeks to weaken them; he is not very worried about radical Muslims acquiring a nuclear bomb or coming to power in countries like Tunisia and Egypt. He is quite willing to saddle future generations of Americans with crippling debt; he has spent trillions of dollars toward this end, and if he had been permitted, he would have spent trillions more.

He has shown no inclination, and has no desire, to protect America’s position as number one in the world; he would be content to see America as number 18, or number 67, just another country seated at the great dining table of nations. The strength of my thesis is that it is completely congruent with who Obama is and what he does. We don’t have to assume that he is always getting results opposite to what he intends; we simply have to see that he intends the results he is getting.

He emphasized in his inauguration speech his goal of “remaking America”—and he is doing it, recognizing that in order to remake America he must first unmake America.

    Please produce a DVD that can be sold either on-line or in stores. We must get this message to as many people as possible before the election. There is not a theater close to Omaha, NE and I want to see the movie and show my grandchildren their future if Obama is re-elected.
    Thank you. Rozanne

    • David Butler August 17, 2012 at 6:19 pm #

      Here! Here! We can each do our part buy sending a DVD as a gift. I hope a PAC or appropriate group would in October mass mail this work to every Independent voter in at least the swing states. In the meantime, a resounding “Hurrah!” for the great Author and Producer!

      Amazing. Everyone needs to hear the mesage.

    Thank you for finally searching and revealing the truth about who this guy is. Always wondered who he was and where this guy was coming from…makes sense with what he has done and wants to do to our country. Beliefs and prejudices start with our parents. The freedom he was given as a citizen has been abused. He has no realization what was fought for, with the ultimate sacirifice,by Dr. King. His dream is not for America.

    I went to see your film. Very well done. I am listening to the audiobook “Obama’s America” now.

    I wholeheartedly agree that every effort should be made to make the film available on DVD, Netflix, etc. BEFORE the election. It should be as easy as possible for voters to see the film.

    • Cathy Campisi August 22, 2012 at 7:42 pm #

      I have not only read your book, I have seen the movie. I cannot thank you enough for making it possible for America to see Obama’s story presented in a clear, precise, factual format. I have been following the controversy surrounding Mr. Obama from day one, and your book/movie still surprised me with the information provided. Thank you, thank you. God Bless America! God Bless you too!

  4. Amit Ray August 24, 2012 at 1:56 pm #

    Hi Dinesh, I have read all of your books, and while I dislikes none of them, I particularly loved your first book “Illiberal Education,” which I believe is the best work of its kind. That’s why I was struck by the following line from a Washington Times review of your latest publication about Barack Obama by William Merchison:

    “He affirms the norms and the worth of the bustling, wide-open country he adopted as an opportunity-seeking refugee from Bombay, now called Mumbai.”

    Based on what I know about you and what I have read about you, you are by no definition of the word, a “refugee”‘ opportunity-seeking or otherwise. I infer that you grew up in an affluent educated Roman Catholic family in Mumbai and probably attended the best schools in the city–i.e., received an expensive education commensurate with the financial abilities of your family. You were a grown-up person when you left India to pursue advanced education at Dartmouth. That’s great! I have done the same myself, as have tens of thousands of others. I also share your love and admiration for America, my adopted country. My point, Dinesh, is this: is it absolutely essential to denigrate the country of one’s birth to elevate one’s adopted country? India played a huge part in what you ultimately became. I am looking forward to reading your last book; I am sure I will learn a great deal from it. Many thanks and best regards. Amit

      WOW! That’s a huge statement! I saw who Obama was from the get go. I have arguments daily about Isreal. I do not think Obama cares about Isreal or for America.

  8. Merry September 3, 2012 at 1:02 pm #

    I’m so grateful that you have brought this information to all of us to see the truth of what is happening with America under Obama’s rule. I did watch the movie and I cried afterwards wondering in my heart how someone would want to bring down our beautiful country like this. Obama promotes “hope” but all of us who see through Obama see he is really promoting “Destruction” of our country. Obama lies, he is like a wolf in sheeps clothing. We cannot sit back and watch this happen to our country. Lets band together and get him voted OUT of office before we too will be living like a third world country and our freedoms lost. Wake Up America! Do you want to lose your freedoms and our consitution?

    Just finished Obama’s America in one sitting, literally could not put it down. Very scary stuff. Thank you for boldly going where no one else will go…

  10. Kevin September 4, 2012 at 6:30 am #

    I just saw Obama 2016 and it was exactly what this country needed. An honest account of what this communist is trying to do to America. Thank you for your patriotism.

  11. Jay September 12, 2012 at 2:11 pm #

    Dinesh: I first read “The Roots To Obama’s Rage” – could not stop others about it; after seeing the movie “2016: Obama’s America”, I came across your current book “Obama’s America – Understanding The American Dream”. All I can say is that you are so “right on”! Again, I have been urging others – when possible – to read this book. America really needs to wake up – before it is too late! I applaud you!!

    • Paddy Singh February 13, 2013 at 3:01 pm #

      I am sorry Jay, Americans were asleep for 8 long years under the Bush / Chenney regime. But I realise that you and the others who gloat about D’Souza’s books and movies are the millions of Yankees who would put a full stop to America’s progress. There is no difference between you and the fundamentalist Islamists who seek to destroy the world. You seek to destroy America

  12. Caryle Schober September 12, 2012 at 9:50 pm #

    Thank you for writing your book, and for making the movie “2016″. My family and I saw it and I just finished reading your book. I had done a lot of reading about Obama starting before he was elected and knew enough to not vote for him, but I had not been able to figure out why he was doing what he was. I knew he said one thing and then did the opposite in secret. Your theory of anti-colonialism is the only one that makes sense of exactly what he is doing and how he is doing it. I appreciate all your research as well as your clear way of explaining Obamas’ life and where his methods come from. I can’t thank you enough.

    Loved the book and movie!! Thank you for opening our eyes.

  14. Beatrice Foster September 13, 2012 at 3:35 pm #

    I’m half way through the book & I hope that enough people open their eyes to reality before it’s too late!

  15. Coleen September 13, 2012 at 3:53 pm #

    I did not read the book but the movie was awesome and a real eye opener.It was great and some of the people sitting next to me were really surprised by the movie. People clapped after the movie. I loved it

  16. M September 14, 2012 at 7:38 am #

    I have not read the book … but I did see the movie in a thoroughly jammed theater on a Sunday afternoon …. was forced to sit in the only available seat … on the front row (which, I now know, can produce motion sickness).

    The movie was excellently done and the entire theater gave applause at the end. It was a moving experience to be among so many like-minded individuals in one location!

    I’ve been to many movies, some very popular, and I have never seen a theater packed … EVERY seat filled from the front row all the way up (and trust me, I tried to find a seat to avoid the front row!). From what I understand, this is not an isolated occurrence.

    Thanks for the great work!

    • M September 14, 2012 at 7:40 am #

      obviously .. that should read from the BACK row all the way up.

  17. oversea September 26, 2012 at 9:23 pm #

    It’s unbelievable how easily a lot of american people can be manipulated by one party or the other. I don’t know whether this movie should make me sick or scared to death…..but the one thing I know for sure is that I pity everyone how is dump enough to base his or her dicision on who to vote for on a film/ book on the democratic candidate, that is made and paid for by a republican.

  18. Ben September 27, 2012 at 2:37 pm #

    Obama’s top 3 priorities: Foreign policy, Health care and employment has really made some progress in his first term, which would otherwise have cuased a catstrophy had thre been a republican president.

  19. R. Van Cura September 28, 2012 at 11:09 pm #

    This book was life changing for me. I was never an Obama supporter but I was always one to make my own conclusions … “He’s a Muslim”, “He’s Socialist.” This book gave a fresh perspective that finally makes sense. Anti-colonial is a term all Americans need to understand. Thanks for a very concise layout on the real Obama.

    • oversea September 29, 2012 at 4:36 pm #

      Well, how about understanding what the term “Socialist” really means……

  20. Tim Berends October 2, 2012 at 3:33 pm #

    I enjoyed the movie but wish he would have dealt honestly with where Obama was born. When I was in Kenya 2 years ago I saw a sign (like our highway signs) saying “Welcome to Kenya birthplace of Barack Obama” in English and Swahili. Nothing was mentioned of the sealed college records. That would prove he was born in Kenya. He probably said that because he wanted to be interviewed by FOX and wanted Rush and Ann Coulter to say nice things about it. Btw if Romney doesn’t ask about the college records know that the fix is in.

    Dinesh D’Souza

    First, I have really enjoyed reading your books “The Roots of Obama’s Rage” and “Obama’s America” as they provide a very thought-provoking interpretation of the reasons behind the actions taken by our President and what should be expected to come.

    Second, I feel that you have failed to specifically state one major danger to our country from our escalating debt and borrowing, i.e., the collateral necessary to secure future loans.

    You clearly make the point that President Obama’s anti-colonial ideology drives his decision making. And you clearly state that “Anti-colonialists insist that since the West grew rich by looting the resources and raw materials of the colonies, it is time for global payback.” (p139, “Obama’s America”)

    Later (p198) you rightly project that, because of our mounting debt and depreciation of the dollar, lenders will “demand that you (the US) sell us (the lending nation) your major companies, or give us a portion of the real estate in the country, or sell us the national parks” as payback for the loans. This is where I feel that you did not go far enough in projecting the disaster that awaits us.

    In keeping with the idea that “the West grew rich by looting the resources and raw materials of the colonies,” President Obama likely will offer the resources and raw materials of the United States (coal, oil, natural gas, minerals, precious metals, timber, et al and ultimately the crops produced) as collateral to secure continuing loans from foreign governments. This, to me, would represent to President Obama an ideal payback for the wrongs he perceives that the US has committed worldwide.

    I am expecting to get the DVD 2012 today. Cant wait to see it, i have heard great reviews from friends and family.

  23. Michelle February 12, 2013 at 10:01 pm #

    I have seen the movie and I must say that it opened my eyes to an Obama that is more destructive than I had imagined. I am looking for the article that was quoted in the movie stating that Obama sees nothing wrong with taxing the American people to 100% of his or her income, so long as the government compensates them accordingly. Please help me find this article.

    • Paddy Singh February 13, 2013 at 2:55 pm #

      I think your comments about Obama are biggoted and typically Republican – a people who would rather see Americans go under rather than allow and reforms intended by Obama. During the Bush / Chenney years Ammerica and Americans were the most hated in the world. Today the US has far more respect than it has had for a long time. Your book / books and articles are meant only for the fundamentalist Yankees and not for the ones who are sane.
