Ep. 264 – How will the Left react to a Donald Trump victory? Award-winning Filmmaker and NY Times Bestselling Author Dinesh D’Souza discusses how to ‘Beat the Socialism, Corruption and the Gangsterization that Defines the Democrat Party’, why children have not been taught about failures of communism, his latest film Trump Card, Election 2020, AOC, Ilhan Omar, Bernie Sanders and much more in this long-form interview. Watch the film VOD on your big screen at TrumpCardTheMovie.com.

This week, Dave welcomes prominent filmmaker, author, and scholar Dinesh D’Souza to the show to discuss Dinesh’s new film, “Trump Card: Beating Socialism, Corruption and the Deep State.” Released less than a week ago, Trump Card is already #1 on Amazon as well as iTunes. Dave and Dinesh begin by discussing the steady erosion of freedom of thought and speech that Dinesh eloquently noted in his 1991 book, “Illiberal Education” and which he spoke about at length in a special Firing Line Debate, hosted by William F. Buckley, Jr., that same year. But the conversation focuses primarily on Mr. D’Souza’s new film and how he takes the viewer with him to research and interview key people in today’s political divide. A popular speaking on College Campuses across the country, Dinesh explains in detail the pathologies and methods of those attempting to remake America.

Then Dave settles in for a fun and informative chat with Ricochet member Jenna Stocker, whose recent article, “America Needs Its Cowboys,” provides a much needed reminder of the sort iconic heroes and role models who helped build a nation, and whose example can illuminate the path out of the anarchy and chaos afflicting so much of the nation today.

Filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza stops by to talk with Teri and Tami about his film, Hillary’s America, and to answer the question on everyone’s mind: Should you ally with the bad guy to get rid of the worse guy? They also discuss the evil roots of the Democrat Party, the twisted relationship between Bill and Hillary, Dinesh’s advice to Christians during this insane election season, and what should happen to the Republican Party.

In the wake of the shooting in San Bernardino, we get into the “thoughts and prayers” debate that broke out last night after the NY Daily News published its provocative front page.

Then, Dinesh D’Souza joins to discuss his new book Stealing America: What My Experience with Criminal Gangs Taught Me about Obama, Hillary, and the Democratic Party and get into detail about his experiences while incarcerated in a halfway house in Texas. But that’s not all — the great Garry Kasparov calls in to talk about his book Winter Is Coming: Why Vladimir Putin and the Enemies of the Free World Must Be StoppedHis comments on Putin and Russia’s place in the world are not to be missed. Finally, a meditation of Chick-fil-A courtesy of Ricochet member Olive and her post The Roaring Success of Chick-fil-A in New York City.

Dinesh D’Souza has been a public figure since the 1980s, when he was a conservative intellectual and controversialist at Dartmouth College. He has gone on to be an extremely successful author and filmmaker.

With him, you can discuss just about anything, and Jay does in this “Q&A” podcast. They talk about politics — Obama, Romney, Trump, et al. They talk about higher ed. They talk about concepts of freedom and fairness. They talk about prison and prisoners. They talk about India (D’Souza’s birthplace).

Hey, it’s our last free show! Dinesh D’Souza stops by to discuss this hit documentary Obama: 2016. Then, pollster, prognosticator, and provocateur Pat Caddell brings his usual sunny optimism to his view of the state of the campaign. And later, a rousing debate amongst our hosts about the effect of the media, and of course, “The Big Story of the Day.” See you on the other side, folks. Join today!
