Obama's America 2016 - The Movie

A look at Barack Obama's "Founding Fathers."

 

A look at Barack Obama's "Founding Fathers."

 

Think you know about who influenced Barack Obama in the years before his Presidency?  Think again.

 

We've all heard about his 20 years with Reverend Jeremiah Wright  and his controversial relationship with the former Weatherman activist Bill Ayers but in the 90 minute documentary which opened this weeked at the Revere Showcase Cinema, three other key mentors are studied.

 

The first and most influential mentor was collectivist and anti-colonialist Barack Obama Sr.

 

WND.com reports on Barack Obama Sr.: “All of my life, I carried a single image of my father, one that I tried to take as my own,” Obama wrote in “Dreams From My Father.” What was that image? It was “the father of my dreams, the man in my mother’s stories, full of high-blown ideals.”

"Obama adds, 'It was into my father’s image … that I’d packed all the attributes I sought in myself.'

"Though Obama said little about what those “ideals” were, they crystallized in the form of a 1965 paper, written by the senior Obama and published in the East African Journal. In that paper, titled, “Problems Facing Our Socialism,” the elder Obama advocated the communal ownership of land and even the forced confiscation of privately controlled land. He also called for the nationalization of “European” and “Asian” owned enterprises, and advocated handing over control of these operations to the “indigenous” black population. Further, Obama’s father wanted to increase taxes on the rich, even up to the 100 percent level, arguing that “there is no limit on taxation if the benefits derived from public services by society measures up to the cost in taxation which they have to pay.” Incidentally, this concept is not totally foreign to the younger Obama, whose plan to “spread the wealth around” by raising taxes conceptually mimics his fathers plan."  Read the entire story here.

The next mentor in Obama's America 2016 is Roberto Unger.

 

About him, Summit.org says, "It is because Barack Obama is himself a radical Fabian Socialist with a revolutionary bias! It is no accident that one of the President’s major professors at Harvard Law School was Roberto Unger, a radical Marxist. Unger is quoted as stating, 'I am a leftist and by conviction as well as temperament a revolutionary. Any association of mine with Barack Obama in the course of the campaign could do only harm.' (See Dinesh D’Souza, The Roots of Obama’s Rage, 98)

The newest twist to the Roberto Unger story is from HuffingtonPost.com entitled, Roberto Unger, Obama's Former Harvard Law School Professor, Says The President 'Must Be Defeated'

 

And certainly the most troubling mentor is Frank Marshall Davis who is the subject of a new book entitled, "The Communist - Frank Marshall Davis: The Untold Story of Barack Obama's Mentor by Paul Kengor, Ph.D. 

 

The Book Description on Amazon.com reads: 

 

Publication Date: July 17, 2012

 

“I admire Russia for wiping out an economic system which permitted a handful of rich to exploit and beat gold from the millions of plain people. . . . As one who believes in freedom and democracy for all, I honor the Red nation.” —FRANK MARSHALL DAVIS, 1947

 

"In his memoir, Barack Obama omits the full name of his mentor, simply calling him 'Frank.' Now, the truth is out: Never has a figure as deeply troubling and controversial as Frank Marshall Davis had such an impact on the development of an American president."

 

"Although other radical influences on Obama, from Jeremiah Wright to Bill Ayers, have been scrutinized, the public knows little about Davis, a card-carrying member of the Communist Party USA, cited by the Associated Press as an 'important influence' on Obama, one whom he 'looked to' not merely for 'advice on living' but as a 'father' figure."

 

"While the Left has willingly dismissed Davis (with good reason), here are the indisputable, eye-opening facts: Frank Marshall Davis was a pro-Soviet, pro–Red China communist. His Communist Party USA card number, revealed in FBI files, was CP #47544. He was a prototype of the loyal Soviet patriot, so radical that the FBI placed him on the federal government’s Security Index." 

 

"In the early 1950s, Davis opposed U.S. attempts to slow Stalin and Mao. He favored Red Army takeovers of Central and Eastern Europe, and communist control in Korea and Vietnam. Dutifully serving the cause, he edited and wrote for communist newspapers in both Chicago and Honolulu, courting contributors who were Soviet agents. In the 1970s, amid this dangerous political theater, Frank Marshall Davis came into Barack Obama’s life."

 

WND.com says about Frank Marshall Davis: "As a teen, Obama’s mother abandoned him in Hawaii so she could go to Indonesia to seek a Ph.D. At the age of 16, left on his own, Barack Obama developed a relationship with a non-family member – reputed Marxist Frank Marshall Davis. Davis, a former Chicago resident, was a member of the Communist Party USA and an apologist for the Soviet Union. The 1951 report of the Commission on Subversive Activities to the Legislature of the Territory of Hawaii identified him as a CPUSA member. What’s more, anti-communist congressional committees, including the House Un-American Activities Committee, accused Davis of involvement in several communist-front organizations. Obama describes “Frank and his old Black Power dashiki self” as advising him before he left for Occidental College in 1979 at the age of 18. Passages from “Dreams From My Father” suggest that Frank Marshall Davis was something akin to a surrogate dad to Obama in those days. Obama’s only contact when he moved to Chicago was Davis."

According to Deadline Hollywood the documentary is currently the 4th highest grossing movie this weekend.  It's worth a look.

DianeT August 30, 2012 at 05:57 PM
Excellent story Jim! I found the movie to be extremely revealing of Obama's influences which I had suspected all along. It is a shame so many were blinded by him the first time.
Richie M August 30, 2012 at 09:14 PM
You must be pretending to be one of those racists that Chris Matthews keeps talking about. It's time to turn off MSDNC and move out of mommy's house. What a pathetic fool you are. GET A LIFE MORON.
butch pierce August 30, 2012 at 09:15 PM
nice job jim. although the liberals will continue to close their eyes and ears. they believe that todays democrats are the same as those great ones that help form this country.this is not your grandpas democratic party. wake up everyone they are wolfs in sheep clothing
R. White August 31, 2012 at 07:06 AM
This movie should be ran on TV in the prime time slot. Let's awaken the American people to this conniving idiot
Jim Morse August 31, 2012 at 01:15 PM
Thanks for the kind words! In 2008, Obama got the majority of the "young" vote and I'm wondering how many of them will vote for him this time around. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6yD43OrcjDI

Here's another shocker! Michael Moore: "I Think People Should Start To Practice The Word's President Romney" http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=4LaDFWD7O18
Joe Viglione September 01, 2012 at 05:49 AM
Michael Moore, who was gracious enough to grant me an interview, is telling people in that link Jimmy Morse provided that the Republicans are looking to buy the election. The Bush crew stole it...twice...which is why Romney's GOP wants Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld as far away as possible from "their" campaign. How embarrassing. It's like the people who claim to be "independent" because they are ashamed of the Republicans, yet they don't have a clue why they vote "Republican." It's actually quite frightening to see the lack of objectivity from people who should know the charade that the GOP is putting on.

‘2016: Obama’s America’ shocks film industry after becoming a box office success despite having virtually no promotional budget  Read more: http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/tv-movies/2016-obama-america-shocks-film-industry-a-box-office-success-virtually-promotional-budget-article-1.1150536#ixzz25TEo4Vha
Public Access Producer September 04, 2012 at 05:06 AM
Jimmy, you are a friend, but you are clearly becoming fanatical. Nice link from the NY Daily News where someone echoes what I wrote here: "solidd5956 Watch this guy on Bill Maher. He couldn't defend his own movie each time he was questioned about things that didn't jive or were just plain false." So if you want to keep repeating nonsense while Mitt Romney failed to address our troops in Afghanistan, how are you helping the country out? Any paper can make a bold claim that a film has "shocked" the industry; it is plummeting down already, the wingnuts came out during the two softest weekends of the entire year and bought a few tickets, and if it weren't election time the film wouldn't have had even these 15 little minutes of infamy. It is "swift boating", plain and simple. Lies designed to discredit a good president because the ex-Governor of Massachusetts has no plan, didn't give us any indication he would know what the heck he would do in office, he just wants to be president because he's rich and it is something for him to do. Obama/Biden 2012. The only choice.

The flick has turned out to be a quiet bombshell — the No. 8 grossing movie in the nation in late August. New York Post 9/4/12
Public Access Producer September 05, 2012 at 01:18 PM
MO, as someone who watches BoxOfficeMojo daily it is clear that a minor flick like 2016 got to sneak in during the two softest weeks of the year. "quiet bombshell" - look at the returns for June, July and see how weak the film actually is in regards to real numbers. While most major releases are in the 50m, 80m, 100 million range, it's under 20m. Not very good for a film latching onto an election cycle.
MO September 05, 2012 at 01:50 PM
Obama 2016 has gone from a single theatre in Houston to 1747 screens and counting. It has taken in 18.3 million to date. That’s a success story if I ever heard one for a documentary.
Luciano September 05, 2012 at 02:28 PM
Not going to waste my time on propaganda. Why are people so defensive about fiction?
phil September 05, 2012 at 02:43 PM
since when is the content of a documentary adequately reflected by box office take? y'all judge success by the thickness of the wallet? ignorant
Jim Morse September 10, 2012 at 09:01 PM
'2016: OBAMA'S AMERICA' GAINS GROUND Among the few notable spots was the anti-President Barack Obama documentary "2016: Obama's America." It boosted its cumulative total to more than $26 million to become the second-biggest political documentary since liberal filmmaker Michael Moore's 2004 anti-war indictment, "Fahrenheit 9/11." http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/09/09/entertainment-us-boxoffice-idUSBRE8880BN20120909
Public Access Producer September 16, 2012 at 10:02 PM
Box Office Mojo reports another slow weekend for films. The faux movie on our great President found the four slowest weeks for film and only came in at #13 during an election cycle. Without the election and the lack of a big box office hit "The Misadventures of Miss Sarah Palin" could do thirty mil! HA http://news.yahoo.com/resident-evil-rules-box-office-21-1m-155335844--finance.html
phil September 17, 2012 at 11:04 AM
Come on PAP / Viglione....."faux"..."great president" ? give Jim and this movie some credit. What if we judged you by the amount of money, or lack thereof, that you bring in ???
ella watson September 17, 2012 at 01:17 PM
Well I'm so glad to have read everyone's post..sounds to me the more republicans open their mouths of hate against our President Obama.....The more we go towards victory in November.. Keep up the discussions. Your helping us get more votes..with your narrow Republican views..and absolutely no-plans even exist for what Reps will even do ..in any and every aspect .No-plans for education.. Reps. answer:..ask your parents..Their isn't a plan for war/defence. Reps.flip-flop on the wars..to numerous to post.. Helping the poor..they think anyone below them financially ..is poor. Women's rights..their are NONE.They want to take away ALLrights for women. Please tell us what the republicans have done for this country to move us forward..and what they will do for our future.. please tel us..were all ears.Please give us a clue..on what your plans are..and how they will turn this country around..as you keep saying ..you have plans..WHAT ARE THEY???
raymay September 17, 2012 at 02:11 PM
Their plan, ella, is to throw America back into the dark ages, with women barefoot and pregnant, children working in factories and the rest of us stuck in the poor house. We all know that Jim is sitting pretty on his fireman disability/retirement money. He feels pretty good about taking away social security from the rest of us. They seem upset because a man of color (horror!) was elected president. That's democracy in action, fellahs, suck it up. I agree with ella, all this sensational disinformation (dead babies! voter fraud!) only serves to rile up the hotheads here, and prove that Jim Morse does not want a discussion but to disseminate propaganda.
ella watson September 17, 2012 at 03:27 PM
Raymay have you notice on any thread..that when you ask for "Their Plan"..on what they the republicans are are doing or will be doing for the American People...silence. check out other articles on Patch..They say Nothing..because they got Nothing. Again I ask..What have you done..and what will you do..(details please) for Students, Women, Elderly and the Poor ?. We are all ears...
Jim Morse September 17, 2012 at 05:27 PM
Here is the Romney / Ryan plan. I've never seen a Democratic plan. http://www.mittromney.com/sites/default/files/shared/BelieveInAmerica-PlanForJobsAndEconomicGrowth-Full.pdf
Luciano September 17, 2012 at 06:05 PM
Mr. Morse, Romney's plan keeps changing. Ryan had a plan that Romney doesn't want. You don't want to see the Democratic plan because you seem obsessed with propaganda, as Raymay put it. The flip flops by your candidate are disturbing. More disturbing is how Romney makes a mistake every other day and runs for his etch-a-sketch
Jim Morse September 17, 2012 at 06:10 PM
Luciano, people here were asking for a plan. Personally I don't have much confidence in Campaign promises and/or plans from ANY party. I'm still waiting for my Real Estate tax reduction from Gov. Patrick.
Richie M September 17, 2012 at 08:58 PM
"When I'm inaugurated muslim anger will ease" - President Gutsy Call Obama. Not to sound racist here raymay & Ella but I guess the racists in Libya didn't buy into that one. What did you think of all those riled up hothead racists with narrow views burning your great president's picture last week? As well as hanging him in effigy. Don't they know it's a hate crime to do that?. I guess they just don't feel the "progressive" love. The Klan (Republican Party) must have a middle east chapter I suppose. "When I'm elected the oceans will stop rising". We'll save that one for another day.
ella watson September 18, 2012 at 02:07 PM
..The romney ryan plan is ..if you are a veteran, disabled on the jos, elderly who never worked out of home and don't have a pension..etc/ You don't pay taxes and we don't care about you. These people pay sales tax..excise taxes , property tax..Romneys statement that 47% of people listed above don't pay any taxes. Good luck in 2016..it will give you 4 years to change your tune.. what your playing now..hurts my ears.
Vince October 10, 2012 at 04:26 PM
Is that what it is Ella. Did they call you personally to let you know or beam the message directly to your space ship?
