Dinesh D’Souza: Left Had Romney ‘Hiding Under His Desk’ with Tactics that Didn’t Work Against Trump



By: Michelle Moons
9 Jun 2018

WASHINGTON, DC — Filmmaker and conservative author Dinesh D’Souza explained the “gangsterization of American politics,” using his own conviction under Obama and his pardon under Trump in a speech to Road to Majority conference attendees in Washington, DC, on Saturday.

“What we’ve seen really is a gangsterization of American politics and this has happened under [President Barack] Obama,” D’Souza told the Faith and Freedom Coalition conference crowd in light of the prosecution against him for excessive campaign contributions.

He recalled his call from President Donald Trump informing him that he would receive a pardon for the crime he was convicted of and punished for under the Obama administration. He went on to speak of Obama’s training under Saul Alinsky involving deceptive and “ruthless tactics to go after people.”

He recalled the time when authorities were threatening to charge him not simply for exceeding the campaign contribution limit that he admitted to, but also mail fraud, bank fraud, filing false documents, and making false statements in relation to the contributions.

D’Souza said the tactic that has been used to combat attacks from the left has been to take the high road. In politics, this has meant candidates who look like “boy scouts” on paper, with “impeccable resumes.” He used 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney as an example.

He said the left’s attacks that worked on Romney don’t work on Donald Trump. He described the defensive posture of Romney, “up against the wall, hiding under his desk” when his opponents went after him for being too rich. “The problem with accusing Trump of being too rich is is that he sits down and explains to you he’s even richer than you thought,” said D’Souza, eliciting a wave of laughter and applause from the crowd. He explained that this leftist tactic, when used on Trump: “It really doesn’t work.”

These are very accurate words from the article:

Quote:
He said Bharara used prosecution of him as a show of loyalty to Obama and Obama’s Attorney General at the time, Eric Holder. “But somehow it didn’t work out that way,” said D’Souza.
“At the end of the day, he got fired and I got pardoned,” he said of Bharara.


I've always enjoyed hearing what Dineesh has to say.  He does not deny doing what put him in prison.

And the Trumpster? Roll Eyes
Quote:

Democrats would be crazy to reject Trump's DACA deal
President Trump's DACA immigration offer massively expands the number of so-called Dreamers who will get amnesty and citizenship.
If the Democrats accept the deal, it would intensify the rift between right wing Republicans, who are angry about the offer, and the president.
Democrats are publicly blasting the proposal. Here are three reasons they should take it and run.

In all seriousness, what happened with that?  President Trump does have empathy for the kids who didn't make the decision to come here.  I do, too.  However, I'm not on the bandwagon that President Trump would be separating the kids from their parents.  No, it's the parents that separate the kids from them.  The parents have the right to take their kids with them when they are deported.  It's the parents who make the choice.

Of course all this was focused on on Jan 18 of this year.  What's gone on since then?

I do.  I live on the one that is orderly and run by the people with the help of the Legislative and Executive and Judicial Branches of govt.  You live on the one run by the leftist dems, the socialist dems and the people who don't want to earn their living by honest work.  I live on the planet of competition.  You live on the planet of govt telling you exactly how to live your life.  I live on the planet of the individual making more of her own decisions.  You live on the planet of "I don't know what to do.  Govt please tell me".  I live on the planet where our laws are enforced by our law enforcement people, and if I don't like the law I can work to change it.  You live on the planet of "I'm not obeying your laws and don't you dare imprison me".

I thank God daily for allowing me to live where I live on this planet.  You bitch about having to live on your planet.  (I'd bitch, too, if I had to live on your planet.

"This is the day the Lord hath made.  Rejoice in it, and be glad."  Yes, I do rejoice!

It does seem like an interesting place.
Is it one of those planets that Mormons get when they die?

Since I'm not a Morman, I have no idea what you're talking about.  Do you?
