Ripon Press: D'Souza Says Obama is Not "A Bungler," His Actions Are Calculated

Originally posted at Ripon Commonwealth Press.

President Barack Obama is not stupid.

In fact, his actions reflect great intelligence, and telegraph his intentions.

Maybe that’s not the message visitors to Dinesh D’Souza’s talk at Ripon College last week Wednesday expected the noted Obama administration critic to offer.

But, the former Reagan policy analyst and producer of multiple movies and books critical of the White House was clear on this subject.

Obama knows exactly what he’s doing, D’Souza said — and that is to reduce America’s influence in the world.

“So, to me, the theory that Obama is a bungler, an amateur, an ignoramus is wrong,” D’Souza said. “Obama is actually extremely successful at achieving the results he wants.”

Through D'Souza's trademark incisiveness, wit, and originality, United States of Socialism reveals how the Left uses the Venezuelan formula for socialism, decisively refutes this new face of socialism, chillingly documents the full range of the Left’s gangster tendencies, and provocatively exposes the tactics of the socialist Left.

    I think what I’d rather hear is how we’re going to stop him….

      You can’t stop him Sherri koran, all we can do is out wait him…one more year. The worst thing we could do is to stop him. The best way to “stop his agenda” is to get out and vote in the next election after seriously considering what’s going on and what our alternative officials have to offer.

        The election of the President is never directly by the people. It is left up to the clearly corrupt and disgusting non representative College of Voters, to decde who willl be President. I do note however every President in USA since Kennedy has been run by the Bilderbergs and by the secretive cabal of secret societies and now not even the republicans with a majority in congress dare to proceed to impeach him despite his obvious actions of High Treason and aiding and abetting foreign enemies of usa and working towards destruction fo USA such as closing last Plutonium enrichment plant leaves usa in a national security crisis where does teh nuclear warships submarines and other uses of nuclear energy get it- they are going ot have to beg foreigners like iran who will be producing it. Obama is a enemy agent of the Sauds and hates usa

    * I’ve been posting this for several years (2008+/-), why isn’t everyone?
    * Do you, YOU, realize what’s happening to America?
    * Why won’t people in the media and elected representatives tell the truth?
    * Obama & his cronies know & are doing exactly what they intended to do.
    * They are NOT over their head, not stupid, not inept, not clueless, not out of touch.
    * They will NOT change directions, appointees, beliefs, actions, nor policies.
    * He told us while campaigning he’d “fundamentally transform” America.
    * Obama & democrats et al are students of Alinsky, Cloward, & Pivens, & the DEVIL.
    * Their idea was & IS to overwhelm government so as to collapse it.
    * He’s doing exactly what he intended & promised & a pretty good job at that – food stamps, unemployment, massive deficit increases and debt growth, massive hiring at the federal level, incredible pay raises for federalies, crony capitalism growth, regulation growth on steroids, foreign policy as bad as it gets, supporting the further radical islaminzation of the middle East, Europe, & America.
    * His intent is to collapse American government – riots in the streets, depression economics, people at one another’s throats.
    * His intent is to creat chaos around the world … Doing that well I’d say!
    * Real patriots of both parties ought to be scared as hell & doing everything in their power to cleanse our formerly great nation of these liberal bastards.
    * If the above ideas make sense, spread the word! In other words, LIKE and SHARE!
    ***** Hope you’ll also connect with our small biz page. Thanks so much!

      You my friend have hit the nail on the head. You absolutely nailed it. Obama’s goal is to cause as much damage to this country as possible in every way possible. I am convinced he hates America and is trying his best to instill division, chaos and bankrupcy in our once great nation. Sad thing is the stupid media and a majority of the American citizenry is blind to it.

      The Banksters and MegaCorps; along with their minions, FedGov and the Media, will continue doing everything within their substantial power to KEEP us ALL terrified and fighting amongst ourselves. Keep us all debt poor and desperate.

      We’re being manipulated. FedGov and the MSM, are deep in the pocket of the Banksters and the MegaCorps. These “Powers That Be” NEED a war, a BIG war. Whether it’s in the Middle East, an alleged “refugee” crisis in Europe or right here on our own streets, it makes no difference to them. They know full well that the end of their global “ponzi scheme” has arrived and the only way out is to encourage divisive hatred, upheaval, fear, and financial stress as well as inciting more endless wars.

      I would like to think that there are some “honest” people in government that will not accept a bribe. But when one doesn’t have a price, there’s always blackmail…

      At this point, the National Security Administration, (a.k.a. the NSA, the pet “Strong Arm” of the Banksters and MegaCorps) possesses enough damning personal and private information to blackmail each and every person on the Supreme Court, each Democrat, each Republican, as well as most members of the MSM. Enough “dirty laundry” to maintain control and keep them ALL in line.

      The FACT that the NSA, the National Security Administration, is SPYING on EACH AND EVERY PERSON in the USA was the most CRITICAL TRUTH in all of the evidence Edward Snowden exposed to the citizens of our country.

      >>>> Any one entity that possesses that much personal and private information on each and every one of us, that entity, CONTROLS us; our loved ones, our friends …our government and our country. <<<<

      Our real enemies are not those living in a distant land whose names or policies we don’t understand. The real enemy is a system that wages war when it’s profitable, and historically, it’s ALWAYS profitable.

      Our enemies are not thousands of miles away. They are right here in front of us. The Banksters and MegaCorps, as well as their minions, FedGov and the Media, have ruled this country for decades. Now in 2015, they believe they are our masters.

      Are they?

      We The People, must STOP squabbling among ourselves. That only serves our mutual enemies’, the Elites', objectives.

      We've been torn apart and pit against each other with Politics, Religion, Sexuality, Gender, Race, Ethnicity and Age…

      This is how they control us. And it's working.

      Like The Strike!

    How often have you heard Muslim Clerics say that the flag of Islam will soon fly over the White House, with nary a word from the Jarrett/Obama administration? Muslims do not want to assimilate, they want to destroy America from within. The Jarrett/Obama administration is rife with Muslims. This administration has given Islam a dangerous foothold in America and they will continue to bring over as many Muslims as possible, with a fast track to citizenship. When the Jarrett/Obama administration bypassed immigration in October, 2014, and brought over one million, five hundred thousand Muslims, said to include an entire village, with no security clearance, there was nary a mention made. And that was in just one month. There was nary a word said when the Jarrett/Obama administration increased student visas for Muslims by seven hundred percent either. Is there any liberal college that is not rife with Muslims, and they do not leave. Soon we will be invaded by thousands of, so-called, Syrian refugees, courtesy of the Jarrett/Obama administration. It appears they are almost 90% well fed, well clothed, Muslim males, though the media tries to focus on the few women and children among them. There is a fight coming and it will be life or death for America.

    January 28, 2014. Obama’s State of the Union address.

    This was when an elected president, who took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States told us, over and over again, that he fully intends to trash the Constitution of the United States in order to ignore Congress, ignore the balance of power provided by our Constitution, and seize control in order to do whatever he wants. A precedent was set when Obama repeatedly said he would use his executive power to get his way AND HALF THE CONGRESS, WHO WOULD LOSE THEIR POWER, CHEERED HIM ON. Like the Roman Senate and Caesar and like the followers of Hitler, they cheered him on.

    It has much more to do with the fact that he knows he has the full backing of the money men who put him into office and he doesn’t care how far down he drags the democrat party because they are, after all, just a means to an end.

    Our only hope now is the ballot box and our own soap box! We have to wake the sleeping giant in America which it basically “the silent majority”! If it is the squeaky wheel that get the oil, than By George, let us squeak loud, long and continually! Talk to your friends and neighbors, shake them to the core with statistics and truth! Push the papers, TV, and internet blogs and current events in their faces and make them see what is happened to our great country because they did not get involved! They did not get out and vote and they have been passive resistant and done nothing to stop the progressive movement in our land! I do not understand why they have just stood around and griped about how much they hate what is happening, yet are too lazy to get into their car and go vote! The only thing that will bring about “Change” and I am talking about the change of the current administration is when “We the People” begin to fall on our knees in repentance, cry out to God for deliverance and fight for what we know is right! Our Constitution, which the liberal faction wants to change to their agenda, was founded upon the principals of common human decency and the inborn nature of right and wrong. The liberal movement wants to take that away and form a grey, wishy washy, government that provides for all the people who are to lazy and stupid to get a job and provide for themselves! It wants a grey covering that says anything and everything is alright if it does not hurt anyone else! They want religious leaders who make them feel good every Sunday and they can do what they want to do throughout the week. They do not want laws that deal with a moral conscience. They do not want anyone or anything the dictates moral issues! It is up to you, “silent majority” will you sleep though this moral revolution or will you wake up and fight to save out nation?

    Some wonderful, passionate, patriotic statements here. God Bless you all. I have been studying and watching this take-down of our country since shortly after 9-11. When Obama came along, it was obvious that he was a Cultural Marxist from the get-go. A story called “Who Stole Our Culture?” in the last issue of Whistleblower magazine addresses what we are up against in a very nicely done historical summary. The bottom line is that the fight to retake all of our original institutions (K-12 education, media, arts, churches, universities, etc.) will be met with strong resistance of those who took decades/generations to entrench themselves in their “long march.” What we might best do is to build our own institutions–it will take decades and generations, but the fight has already begun (think about homeschooling for example) and we must persevere.

    Mr. D’Souza is correct. Obama knows exactly what he’s doing. The idiots, are the “So Called People’s Representatives” surrounding him, “Democrats & Republicans!” Most are bought & paid for by Special Interest & as I recently heard a Congressman say; “I don’t do face book, emails etc. I let my staff deal with it!” And we wonder why they are so disconnected from the people & the country? It’s just business as usual to them, so long as they get re-elected, they keep their “lavish pay, benefits” and retirement, (which they bestow upon themselves),
