The film, co-directed by D’Souza and John Sullivan and produced by Academy Award winner Gerald R. Molen, has already grossed $2.1 million in 169 theaters, according to the Hollywood Reporter. It placed just behind “Bully,” which earned $3.2 million, and currently ranks as the No. 12 political documentary of all time.
For the weekend of Aug. 17, the film hit No. 13 on the overall domestic box-office chart, according to Box Office Mojo. Still small, but growing.
Immersed in exotic locales across four continents, best selling author Dinesh D’Souza races against time to find answers to Obama’s past and reveal where America will be in 2016. During this journey he discovers how Hope and Change became radically misunderstood, and identifies new flashpoints for hot wars in mankind’s greatest struggle. The journey moves quickly over the arc of the old colonial empires, into America’s empire of liberty, and we see the unfolding realignment of nations and the shape of the global future.

Translates the past into the present. You are witnessing the dreams from a ghost. It’s the dreams of an anti-colonialist, not the dreams of our country’s fathers. And that is the important part to recognize.
D’souza also added that it is a
“marginal, eccentric and some would say heretical”
… wing of Christianity.
He finished by saying that:
“What’s particularly interesting is it happens to be the theology of the president of the United States. So, in my view he is not a Muslim. He is fundamentally a secular guy. But to the degree he can be described as a christian he believes in this particular wing of Christianity.”
Here is the trailer …
… go see it, if you want to know. It may not be perfect, but it is sure better than you will get from the media.
