Illinois movie premiere of "2016: Obama's America" on Aug 10

A provocative new documentary about President Obama's worldview, and where we will be in 2016 if he wins again, launches in Illinois this Friday.

Whether you really admire President Obama, despise him, have mixed emotions, or still remain undecided or uncertain, there's a new movie launching in Illinois this Friday which you should take the time to see.

In fact, you should encourage your friends and neighbors to attend with you, and then discuss what you think of it.

It's called "2016: Obama's America".  The basic premise of the documentary is to take a more in-depth look than the news media at Obama's background and worldview, and his vision for America.  Whether you like him or not, it is important to better understand his point of view, and then envision what America may be like in 2016 if he wins again.

The documentary has already been shown in a few theaters nationally as a limited release, but this will be the premiere showing in Illinois.

It has been attracting many rave reviews from attendees, as you can see for yourself in comments at Fandango

As you might expect, some of the more liberal media have been harshly critical of the movie, dismissing it as conservative conspiracy theories about Obama without actually addressing the pattern of facts which it presents.  It is obviously a provocative documentary.  Go see it with your friends, and then share your own opinions.

Here is some background from the movie distributor.

-----------------------------------

2016 Obama's America takes audiences on a gripping visual journey into the heart of the world's most powerful office to reveal the struggle of whether one man's past will redefine America over the next four years.

The film examines the question, "If Obama wins a second term, where will we be in 2016?" Across the globe and in America, people in 2008 hungered for a leader who would unite and lift us from economic turmoil and war. True to America's ideals, they invested their hope in a new kind of president, Barack Obama.

What they didn't know is that Obama is a man with a past, and in powerful ways that past defines him--who he is, how he thinks, and where he intends to take America and the world. 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

Read "The Obama Hate Machine" and you will learn the Lies, Misinformation, Media Manipulation and Personal Attacks against the First Black President, Who is behind them and why. The GOP, once considered Liberal and Progressive under Eisenhower, has been taken over by a bunch of Radical Lunatic Fringe Racist, Bigot, Misogynistic, and Homophobic Evangelical Hypocrites. The Russian born Koch Brothers, Billionares who fund over 23 'Think Tanks" are behind the dissemination of 1950 Style Communist propaganda techniques and lies.Their Mouthpieces Fox "news", AFP and Rush Limbaugh have managed to Dupe and Brainwash Millions of mostly Low IQ, Low information Americans into voting against their own Economic, Social, Environmental and Health Care Reform interests to appease the Tax breaks and Deregulations for their .01% Puppet Masters. Like Chickens voting for Colonel Sanders. See the new Documentary Koch brothers exposed and ALEC Exposed for the true AFP agenda of turning our Democracy into a Faciast Corporate Plutocracy Aided by the Idiocracy of Tea Party Constituents.

Am not seeing any info about the film maker's political leanings or where/how he obtained his information for the film. Real facts or his personal twist on the subject? A bit disconcerting. We need facts not conjecture.
