PPS: [/break1]blogspot.com/2014/01/analyst-obama-camp-benefiting-from.html]Analyst: Obama Camp Benefiting from Dinesh D'Souza Documentaries - Indictment Designed to PROMOTE Films:In an interview conducted by Howie Carr on WRKO radio in Boston Dinesh D'Souza comments, "...and I think part of what's interesting about Obama is how many black holes there are in this guys history and past, and I find it really scandalous--I mean(that we are)...that these are not investigated, I mean we have a press that is essentially become a lapdog press uh, and the normal checks on government are just not working in the age of Obama." (Audio Excerpt. birtherreport.com. AM680--WRKO, Boston, Massachusetts. Hosted by Howie Carr. 30/Jan./2014. [/break1]birtherreport.com/2014/01/indicted-filmmaker-scandalous-that.html]http://www.birtherreport.com/2014/01/in ... -that.html.)The level of hypocrisy that Mr. D'Souza sinks to is preposterous when he derides the Liberal-socialist mainstream media for their obsequious failure to vet the 'Manchurian' Muslim from Mombasa while he himself obviated the single most significant issue regarding Mr. Obama/Soetoro/Soebarkah's past when making his documentary film '2012.' D'Souza simply ran with the White House narrative in his documentary '2012' that Obama was born in Hawaii disregarding a mountain of evidence to the contrary made public by Sheriff Joe Arpaio's volunteer Cold Case Posse.[...] Do you really think that if Obama's camp did not want D'Souza's next documentary to be widely viewed that the master media manipulators within that camp would have permitted the IRS to attack D'Souza over some $20,000 dollars or so in questionable donations?Attacking the documentary maker would be the stupidest thing that Obama's masters of media manipulation could possibly do. They would know first off that commencing with the litigation would send ticket sales to D'Souza's soon to be released documentary '2016' through the roof--and then Bill Ayers gets a debate with D'Souza.[...]D'Souza's feigned attacks in the form of his documentaries are nothing more than sophisticated theatrically staged mass media manipulation of the public's perception of Obama aimed at taking the public's focus off of the one issue that threatens Obama's cabal's criminal usurpation of the presidency and therefore all that they have accomplished in the course of their conspiracy including foremost the illegal appointment of two US Supreme Court justices.

Four Republican senators have sent FBI Director James Comey a letter regarding conservative author and political commentator Dinesh D’Souza, who was indicted for campaign finance fraud last month. In the letter, Sens. Charles Grassley, Jeff Sessions, Ted Cruz and Mike Lee quote Harvard Law School Professor Alan Dershowitz as saying, “I can’t help but think that [D’Souza’s] politics have something to do with it…. It smacks of selective prosecution.” “To dispel this sort of public perception that Mr. D’Souza may have been targeted because of his outspoken criticisms of the President, it is important for the FBI to be transparent regarding the precise origin of this investigation,” the senators write.Link to the letter here:[/break1]politico.com/story/2014/02/dinesh-dsouza-fbi-103777.html?hp=f3]http://www.politico.com/story/2014/02/d ... html?hp=f3Steve Benen's commentary here:[/break1]msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/the-fringe-the-hill]http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show ... e-the-hillI'd say 'cue the teabagger outrage machine', but that happened awhile back.

Hollywood Reporter: [/break1]hollywoodreporter.com/news/new-trailer-dinesh-dsouzas-america-686669]New Trailer for Dinesh D'Souza's 'America': Watch George Washington Killed (Video):


The filmmaker behind "2016: Obama's America" debuted the video at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday.





Dinesh D'Souza, the filmmaker behind 2016: Obama's America who is out on $500,000 bond for allegedly violating campaign finance laws, was at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington on Friday to unveil a new trailer for his upcoming release, America, a movie that imagines the United States lost the Revolutionary War and therefore never existed.





[...]





This year's CPAC -- an annual gathering that attracts thousands of Republicans, Libertarians and conservatives -- also features presentations from Ann Coulter, Charles Krauthammer, New Jersey governor Chris Christie, former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and several nationally syndicated talk-radio hosts. At CPAC two years ago, D'Souza unveiled a trailer for his first film, 2016, a critical look at President Barack Obama.





"Even though we made a mainstream movie that is for all Americans, we know that it will especially resonate with our conservative friends," D'Souza told THR. "We are proud to debut our trailer at what is effectively their Super Bowl."The teaser trailer (at the link) is George Washington snuff porn; I guess that's D'Souza's idea of "fun." :roll:

Is Dinesh D'Souza's campaign finance fraud thing still happening?I saw this lawyer's post:While Senator Ted Cruz and many conservative activists and politicians alike have come to the embattled author’s defense, Mr. D’Souza recently found support from an unlikely ally: Alan Dershowitz. Mr. Dershowitz blasted the charges, contending, “the idea of charging him with a felony doesn’t sound like a proper exercise of prosecutorial discretion. I can’t help but think that [D’Souza’s] politics have something to do with it. . . . It smacks of selective prosecution.”Mr. D’Souza and his supporters believe that he is being targeted for his political views and that if this application of the law were carried out to every instance of illegal campaign contributions, there would be no room in prisons for more serious criminals. Former FEC commissioner David Mason was surprised by the FBI’s decision to arrest Mr. D’Souza, which Mr. Mason considered to be gratuitous given that “[D’Souza] is obviously not a flight risk. White collar indictments are made lots of times without an arrest being made.”A federal defendant may file a motion to dismiss the case for “selective prosecution,” a claim that the prosecutor has brought the charges against the individual for reasons forbidden by the Constitution. Specifically, a prosecutor’s decision to bring charges cannot be based on an unjustifiable standard such as race, religion, or some other arbitrary classification.snip snipThe case of attorney Pierce O’Donnell would deeply undercut Mr. D’Souza’s potential claim of selective prosecution. In 2008, Mr. O’Donnell was charged with making nearly $26,000 in illegal campaign contributions to former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards’ 2004 campaign. He was convicted and ordered to pay $155,200 in fines and penalties, serve three years probation, and refrain from political fundraising for three years.[/break1]blogspot.com/2014/03/prosecutorial-discretion-when-is.html]http://wclcriminallawbrief.blogspot.com ... en-is.htmlOr is it all out the window now? I have no idea anymore if there are any limitations left.

Jilted Husband's Secret Recording Helping In Case Against Dinesh D'Souza





Eric Lach – April 23, 2014, 10:40 AM EDT





The woman, Denise Joseph, was one of the two alleged straw donors D'Souza used to funnel $20,000 to the Senate campaign of Republican Wendy Long, who challenged Sen. Kirsten Gillbrand (D-NY) in 2012. The donations led to D'Souza's indictment in January on one count of making contributions of more than $10,000 in the names of others and one count of causing false statements. D'Souza has since maintained his innocence.





With D'Souza's trial a few weeks away, The New York Times reported Tuesday on a dispute that has played out in court papers over whether the case was politically motivated. D'Souza's attorney has argued that his client was "targeted … because of his consistently caustic and highly publicized criticism" of President Obama. Federal prosecutors have called the idea "entirely without merit," and have argued that D'Souza knew what he was doing was wrong.





According to the Times, prosecutors have also said that they have obtained a secret recording made independently last October by Joseph's husband. [highlight]Joseph was "recorded as saying that Mr. D’Souza had told her that if he were charged he might plead guilty, but would initially plead not guilty because that 'gives him a window of opportunity to get his story out there,'"[/highlight] according to the Times.[/break1]com/livewire/dinesh-dsouza-secret-recording]http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/d ... -recording

And if it weren't, the prejudicial effect would outweigh the probative value and it still wouldn't be admitted.But Joseph could testify to what D'Souza said, and then be impeached with the recording if she's inconsistent. And if Joseph pleads the Fifth, the recording can come in due to witness unavailablility (if it is sufficiently reliable).D'Souza's statement, while prejudicial, screams consciousness of guilt.
