    Dinesh D'Souza, director of anti-Obama film, resigns college post`


    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Prominent conservative Dinesh D'Souza has resigned his post as president of a small Christian college in New York City after admitting he had become engaged to a woman even though he was legally married, though separated from his wife.

    The college announced the resignation on its website this week, and D'Souza, the director of the conservative film "2016: Obama's America" and an outspoken defender of traditional marriage, confirmed the news on his personal website.

    My resignation will enable The King's College to go forward without distraction. And it will also enable me to address personal matters in my life as well as to pursue new opportunities made possible by success of my recent book and film," D'Souza said in a statement on Thursday.

    D'Souza, 51, is a best-selling author and sought-after speaker in conservative circles. Since being named president of King's - where the enrollment is 555 students - in 2010, he has brought both prestige and a measure of notoriety to the school.

    Earlier this week, Christian publication World Magazine published an article that said D'Souza had been spotted at a Christian gathering in South Carolina in September sharing a hotel room with a woman, Denise Joseph, who is not his wife. The magazine said D'Souza filed for divorce the same day he was confronted by a World reporter.

    In a post on the Fox News website, titled "I am not having an affair," D'Souza conceded he and Joseph were engaged, but he angrily dismissed the World story. He said he and his wife, Dixie D'Souza, had been separated for two years, and that he met Joseph three months ago.

    "I had no idea that it is considered wrong in Christian circles to be engaged prior to being divorced, even though in a state of separation and in divorce proceedings," he wrote.

    On Thursday, Andy Mills, chairman of The King's College board, announced D'Souza's resignation. Mills will serve as the school's interim president.

    Dixie D'Souza and Denise Joseph could not immediately be reached for comment.

    D'Souza Accused Obama of 'Attacking the Traditional Values Agenda' Just Before Sex Scandal Revelations


    <IFRAME height=315 src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/e0MheTN2VRk" frameBorder=0 width=560 allowfullscreen></IFRAME>


    Last week, conservative pseudo-intellectual Dinesh D’Souza was featured on a conference call for Rick Scarborough’s 40 Days to Save America. D’Souza said Obama is “attacking the traditional values agenda” by supporting marriage equality and abortion rights, arguing that “Obama doesn’t like traditional Christianity because he identifies it with colonialism.” However, D’Souza’s rhetoric about “traditional morality” may be undermined by the fact that at a recent conference he reportedly shared a hotel room with a woman other than his wife, whom he introduced as his fiancée. D’Souza later admitted to getting engaged to his girlfriend even though he is still married, but denies sharing a hotel room with her at the conference.

    Why is Obama on the social issues — and I’m thinking here of abortion, I’m thinking here of gay marriage — why is Obama so aggressive in attacking the traditional values agenda? I think the reason for it is because when Obama thinks about colonialism, about the British and the French who went abroad to conquer other countries, or earlier the Spanish and the Portuguese, I come from a part of India that was a Portuguese colony at one time, I think for Obama colonialism is identified not just with the soldiers but also with the missionaries. Remember it’s the missionaries that went alongside the conquerors, the conquistadors, came to the Americas and worked on converting the Indians and later missionaries went to China, India and Japan. So I think this is the problem, Obama doesn’t like traditional Christianity because he identifies it with colonialism. Obama’s own Christianity is more of a Third World liberation theology, a very different kind of Jeremiah Wright type philosophy, summarized in the idea that America is the rogue nation in the world.
    Later, D’Souza said that politics are driven by a moral and spiritual divide that only God can change, grateful that we don’t have “an absentee God like Obama’s dad.”
    Ultimately there’s a political divide in this country but underneath that is a moral divide, and underneath that is a spiritual divide. I think that the deepest problems facing America and the West in the end are not political, they are spiritual. This is why it makes sense even as we debate policy issues, even as we debate moral issues, to turn to the maker of the universe, this maker of the universe that isn’t just an absentee God like Obama’s dad, a kind of absentee father who got things going and then took off but a God who cares about each one of us and certainly about our country.
    Update: In a recent interview with pastor Jack Hibbs, D'Souza reiterated his theory that Obama supports abortion rights and marriage equality because he has a "pathological hatred for traditional Christianity" because it is a symbol of colonialism and that Democrats are eager to discredit his film because if Obama's worldview is understood, nobody will vote for him:

    Update II: The Daily Beast is now reporting that D’Souza has resigned as president of The King’s College, the evangelical school he has led since 2010.
    It was not immediately clear whether the board’s decision was driven by the allegations of the affair, or by dissatisfaction with D’Souza’s leadership that had been building at the college for months. At the meeting Thursday, [Chairman of the Board of Trustees Andy] Mills did not discuss the board’s conversation about D’Souza or give reasons for his departure. Representatives for the college did not respond to requests for comment.

    According to several sources at the college, members of the King’s faculty and board alike had grown hostile to D’Souza’s presidency over what they saw as a failure to earn his reported million-dollar salary. D’Souza has spent much of the past few months promoting his documentary, 2016: Obama’s America, and his high profile in the media was seen as rarely benefitting the college. It may even have been seen as a detriment: According to a former staffer familiar with the college’s public relations, King’s employees have been explicitly tasked with disentangling D’Souza’s extracurricular activities from the college’s reputation. D’Souza became a non-presence on the college’s official Facebook page throughout 2012, which staffers say was no coincidence.

    Dinesh D'Souza indicted for excessive
    Senate campaign contributions​

    • Conservative commentator charged on two counts
    • Senate candidate in question not named in indictment



    [​IMG]



    theguardian.com,
    Thursday 23 January 2014


    The conservative commentator and best-selling author Dinesh D'Souza has been indicted by a federal grand jury, for arranging excessive campaign contributions to a candidate for the US Senate.

    According to an indictment made public on Thursday in federal court in Manhattan, around August 2012 D'Souza reimbursed people he had directed to contribute $20,000 to the candidate's campaign. The candidate was not named in the indictment.

    Attempts to reach D'Souza and a lawyer representing him were unsuccessful.

    D'Souza was charged in the indictment with one count of making illegal contributions in the names of others, and one count of causing false statements to be made. In 2012, federal law limited primary and general election campaign contributions to $2,500 each, for a total of $5,000, from any individual to any one candidate.

    "As we have long said, this office and the FBI take a zero tolerance approach to corruption of the electoral process," the US attorney for Manhattan, Preet Bharara, said in a statement released by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Bharara is an Obama appointee.

    D'Souza, 52, who was born in Mumbai, is a former policy adviser to President Ronald Reagan, and has been affiliated with conservative organizations such as the American Enterprise Institute and the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. He also directed a 2012 film critical of President Barack Obama, entitled 2016: Obama's America, and has written books including The End of Racism, Life After Death: the Evidence and Obama's America: Unmaking the American Dream.

    D'Souza campaigned in 2012 on behalf of Wendy Long, a lawyer and Republican who sought to unseat Democratic incumbent Kirsten Gillibrand as New York's junior senator. Long graduated from Dartmouth College in 1982, a year before D'Souza.

    Long could not be reached for comment on Thursday.

    Gillibrand, a 1988 Dartmouth graduate, ended up winning re-election to her first full term, collecting close to 72% of the vote.

    In late 2012, D'Souza resigned his post as president of King's College, a small Christian college in New York City, after admitting he had become engaged to a woman even though he was legally married, though separated from his wife. He has been an outspoken defender of traditional marriage.

    D'Souza Fails To Get Campaign Finance Fraud Case Dismissed


    [​IMG]

    The federal campaign finance fraud charges against Dinesh D'Souza aren't going away.

    A federal judge on Thursday said that the case against the conservative author may proceed toward trial, according to Reuters. D'Souza had been trying to get the case dismissed.

    D'Souza was indicted in January on charges of violating campaign finance laws. Prosecutors have accused him of using straw donors to funnel $20,000 to the Senate campaign of Republican Wendy Long, who challenged Sen. Kirsten Gillbrand (D-NY) in 2012. D'Souza has since maintained his innocence, and his attorney has argued that D'Souza was targeted because of his criticisms of President Obama.

    Anti-Obama author D'Souza pleads guilty to campaign finance violation

    [​IMG]
    Conservative commentator and best-selling author, Dinesh D'Souza exits the Manhattan Federal Courthouse in New York, January 24, 2014.


    Conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza pleaded guilty on Tuesday to a campaign finance law violation, avoiding a trial that had been expected to begin the same day in a Manhattan federal court.

    D'Souza, known for his biting criticism of President Barack Obama, pleaded guilty to one criminal count of making illegal contributions in the names of others. A second count concerning the making of false statements is expected to be dismissed once he is sentenced.

    The plea came four months after Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara charged D'Souza with using "straw donors" to give funds in 2012 to Republican Wendy Long's U.S. Senate campaign in New York. Long, who met D'Souza while they were students in the 1980s, lost to Democratic incumbent Kirsten Gillibrand.

    "I knew that causing a campaign contribution to be made in the name of another was wrong and something the law forbids," D'Souza, 53, told U.S. District Judge Berman on Tuesday. "I deeply regret my conduct."

    Prosecutors said D'Souza asked two friends and their spouses to contribute $10,000 each to Long's campaign and then reimbursed them. At the time, campaign finance regulations limited individual donations to a maximum of $5,000 during an election cycle.

    One of the friends was Denise Joseph, who was engaged to D'Souza while he was still married to another woman. D'Souza resigned as president of King's College, a small Christian school in New York City, after the media revealed his relationship with Joseph in 2012.

    The criminal case against D'Souza prompted an outcry among some conservatives who accused the government of selectively prosecuting him because of his political views.

    The Indian-born D'Souza wrote the 2010 bestseller "The Roots of Obama's Rage" and co-directed a 2012 film, "2016: Obama's America," which painted a bleak picture of the nation's future if the Democratic president was reelected.

    Bharara is an Obama appointee.

    Earlier this year, four Republican senators asked FBI Director James Comey to explain how investigators came to focus on D'Souza. The Washington Times, a right-leaning newspaper, on Monday published an editorial accusing the Justice Department of selective prosecution.

    In a previous court filing, D'Souza's lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, said his client was singled out for his criticism of Obama.

    Berman, however, ruled D'Souza was not entitled to seek government evidence that could have bolstered that argument, saying there was no sign D'Souza had been targeted.

    Lawyers for both sides agreed that under advisory federal sentencing guidelines, D'Souza faces between 10 and 16 months in prison. Brafman, however, indicated he would ask Berman not to impose prison time, telling reporters D'Souza is a "fundamentally honorable man" who had committed an "isolated instance of wrongdoing."

    D'Souza, who was a policy adviser for President Ronald Reagan and has worked with conservative institutions such as the American Enterprise Institute, declined to comment.

    The case is U.S. v. D'Souza, U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, No. 14-cr-00034.

    Federal prosecutors: Dinesh D’Souza’s online activity proves he’s not sorry

    U.S. seeks up to 16 months in prison for Dinesh D'Souza

    The U.S. government wants conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza to be sentenced to as much as 16 months in prison, following his guilty plea to a campaign finance law violation.

    In a Wednesday court filing, federal prosecutors rejected defense arguments that D'Souza was "ashamed and contrite" about his crime, had "unequivocally accepted responsibility," and deserved a sentence of probation with community service.

    D'Souza, 53, admitted in May to illegally reimbursing two "straw donors" who donated $10,000 each to the unsuccessful 2012 U.S. Senate campaign in New York of Wendy Long, a Republican he had known since attending Dartmouth College in the early 1980s.

    The government said a 10- to 16-month prison sentence was appropriate for D'Souza, and necessary to deter others from abusing the election process, including "well-heeled individuals who are tempted to use their money to help other candidates."

    It also said D'Souza waited to "the last possible moment" prior to trial before admitting guilt, and then went on TV shows and the Internet to complain about being "selectively" targeted for prosecution, and having little choice but to plead guilty.

    "Based on the defendant's own post-plea statements, the court should reject the defendant's claims of contrition on the eve of sentencing," prosecutors led by U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara in Manhattan said in the filing.

    Benjamin Brafman, a lawyer for D'Souza, said in response to the filing: "Any suggestion that Mr. D'Souza has not fully accepted responsibility for his conduct is patently absurd."

    U.S. District Judge Richard Berman in Manhattan is scheduled to sentence D'Souza on Sept. 23. The defendant faces a maximum of two years in prison.

    The case against D'Souza, a critic of President Barack Obama, has prompted some conservatives to accuse the government of selective prosecution. Bharara is an Obama appointee.

    In his own sentencing recommendation on Sept. 3, D'Souza said he "cannot believe how stupid I was, how careless, and how irresponsible."

    That recommendation also contained many statements of support, including from conservative commentator and Dartmouth alumnus Laura Ingraham, and even sometime adversaries such as the literary theorist Stanley Fish.

    D'Souza was born in Mumbai and became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1991. He wrote the bestsellers "The Roots of Obama's Rage" in 2010 and "America: Imagine a World Without Her" this year, and in 2012 co-directed the film "2016: Obama's America."
    The case is U.S. v. D'Souza, U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, No. 14-cr-00034.

    I don't really believe in the "People of Color United" notion that some people seem to push (i.e., people of color share a particular empathy with Black people; or people of color are all in the same boat vis a vis white people, etc., etc.); but why does it appear to me that there is one group of immigrants, Indians from India, who not only proves that People of Color United is without merit, but who also appear to go out of there way many times to throw rocks at us ???

    But, maybe I'm being overly sensitive . . .

    Dinesh D’Souza, Pardoned by Trump, Claims Victory Over Obama Administration

    [​IMG]
    Dinesh D’Souza exits the Manhattan Federal Courthouse with his lawyer after pleading guilty in 2014.


    By Peter Baker


    WASHINGTON — Dinesh D’Souza, the conservative author and filmmaker pardoned by President Trump, claimed victory on Friday over what he characterized as a political prosecution by the administration of President Barack Obama.

    In terms that evidently resonated with Mr. Trump, who is aggrieved about investigations that he blames on his predecessor, Mr. D’Souza presented himself as a victim of selective justice, hounded by Mr. Obama’s attorney general, Eric H. Holder Jr., and the United States attorney in New York, Preet Bharara, because he made a movie sharply critical of Mr. Obama.

    “What happened here is Obama and his team, Eric Holder, Preet Bharara in New York, these guys decided to make an example of me, and I think that the reason for this was Obama’s anger over my movie that I made about him,” Mr. D’Souza said on “Fox and Friends,” one of Mr. Trump’s favorite shows.

    “And so, this was a vindictive political hit that was kind of aimed at putting me out of business, essentially making — destroying my credibility, making it impossible for me to make movies, write books, and that since has failed. But it still left a cloud over me,” he added. “I would be a lifelong felon. I would never be able to vote and never have my full rights.”

    Mr. D’Souza pleaded guilty in 2014 to making illegal campaign contributions to Wendy E. Long, a college friend running for Senate from New York as a Republican. He reimbursed others for making $20,000 in gifts to her campaign in what are called straw donations to evade contribution limits. He was fined $30,000 and sentenced to five years probation, including eight months in a supervised “community confinement center.”

    Mr. D’Souza acknowledged during the court proceedings that he knew what he was doing was wrong and apologized for it. In the Fox interview on Friday, he said he agreed to plead guilty because prosecutors added a second charge that allowed them to threaten a possible five-year prison term, what he called a “kind of legal bludgeoning tactic.”

    Mr. Trump said on Thursday that he pardoned Mr. D’Souza because he was “treated very unfairly.” He said that nobody asked him to do so, but in fact Senator Ted Cruz, Republican of Texas, had promoted Mr. D’Souza’s case with the president over dinner at the White House, according to both Mr. D’Souza and congressional officials. Mr. Cruz spent much of Thursday with the president during a trip to Houston and Dallas and applauded the pardon.

    Mr. Bharara, who was fired by Mr. Trump last year and became one of his most outspoken critics, has rejected the assertion that Mr. D’Souza was prosecuted for political reasons.

    Carrie H. Cohen, then an assistant United States attorney who prosecuted Mr. D’Souza, noted on Friday that a judge considered the claim and rejected it. “The court found no evidence to support D’Souza’s claim that he was selectively prosecuted,” she said in an interview.

    Judge Richard M. Berman, who presided over the case, held a hearing into the contention of selective prosecution and determined there was no basis for it.

    “There is no evidence of discriminatory effect nor of discriminatory purpose,” the judge said at the time, according to a transcript. “The defendant is, for example, unable to say what classification he is in and whom, if anyone, is similarly situated in a different classification that has not been prosecuted. That the case is interesting or high profile, is insufficient to constitute some evidence of selective prosecution.”

    Mr. Trump has been arguing for months that he is the victim of selective justice, contending that the investigation into contacts between his campaign and Russia in 2016 and actions he took that some consider obstruction was nothing more than a “witch hunt” while the F.B.I. should be putting Democrats like Hillary Clinton in prison instead.

    Mr. D’Souza said the president called him on Wednesday to tell him about the pardon. "He said that, ‘I got to tell you man-to-man, you’ve been screwed,’ ” Mr. D’Souza recalled. “He goes, ‘I have been looking at the case. I knew from the beginning that it was fishy.’ ”

    “But he said, upon reviewing it, he felt a great injustice had been done and that using his power, he was going to rectify it, sort of clear the slate,” Mr. D’Souza said of his conversation with Mr. Trump. “And he said he just wanted me to be out there, to be a bigger voice than ever, defending the principles that I believe in.”
