-- sixteen Obama's America has been making waves by asking one very simple question if Barack Obama in fact wins a second term.
Where will we be in 2016.
-- answer that question New York Times best selling author Dinesh D'Souza.
He traveled around the world in search of the real Obama and even spoke for the first time on film with the president's half brother take a look at this.
During the campaign -- was surfing the web.
I saw a story I believe on CNN that Obama's half brother George Obama was living in Nairobi in hot.
I thought this -- going to be some kind of a joke but I click on the story and there's a picture and it looks like something not a slum dog millionaire wanna.
Read you a couple things you -- new book which I -- very interesting and quite honestly I agree but they they they resonate with my own life you say.
I don't think that colonialism.
Which is a big theme of Obama's book also is responsible for the sufferings and poverty of Kenya.
You say that's.
That's around the time of independence on courting you.
Kenya was on an economic par with Malaysia or Singapore.
We were at the same level in terms of development look where we are now and where they are.
They are practically developed and industrialized while Kenya is still a basket case.
Can you say a word about that.
And I think it's true.
Look at some of Korea.
We're very much independence war fly everything.
Right when you call them out.
Are joining me now to share the inside that he gained from making this film Dinesh D'Souza is Douglas -- circuit to Syria if GM's fell apart problem.
He lives and hot.
What's you know it's not odd that you've got Obama who is wealthy and the president and he's got a relative in the hot.
As half brother what is odd is that Barack Obama has been going around the country saying we are our brother's keeper so little -- fair share where we just played at -- argument -- we have obligations to people even people -- related to -- here is his own half brother living by the -- not an American poverty this is -- world poverty of the kind I saw growing up in India.
-- an Obama won't lift a finger to help them well that's -- point he is not given his brother.
-- -- Not a penny and -- -- -- and the photo op right same brother yeah okay so he will -- and -- some.
Why did -- speak out for the first time but -- that wasn't there a story behind this that he was told not to speak to.
Yeah I was on your show Sean a couple of years ago -- started that George Obama campaign now compassion find.
To raise a little money -- couple thousand dollars to help George become an auto mechanic.
I said of Obama -- help and maybe the American people so we had people contribute small amounts of money.
But I couldn't get it to George why because apparently the Obama campaign found out they went to Georgia -- -- don't take the money.
And so George disappeared on me.
But apparently after the campaign they forgot about -- so here's George thinking about where's my money.
And so when I contacted him now two years later George is like come on -- I'll be happy to talk to you and maybe you have a little present -- They did the president lecture where brother's keeper.
Hearing has a photo op with his half brother here he -- his -- -- a separate living in poverty he's a multi millionaire.
You know -- -- Joseph Biden donates like nothing to charities -- cheap you know vice president chief skated basically say the president's.
They're cheap skate when it comes -- brother.
You'll -- it's not that's not the whole story I mean by the latest in the pattern with Obama he -- -- his father's sister who is as we speak selling coal on the streets of Kenya for a couple of dollars a day.
She's quoted an article saying she wants to get her teeth fixed but she doesn't have the money so Obama is not a help -- let's put that way -- -- -- liberals are helpful.
But only with other people's money there -- so generous they have such a moral obligation.
Why would any -- -- brother what would Leo -- -- -- Well in the film in 2016 you see a little window about George which gives you a clue about why Obama may not be too happy with this guy and you and you saw a little bit in the clip but there's a lot more in the film.
Where George basically is I would say -- politically incorrect.
Here is Obama.
The west is to blame America's influence is bad capitalism is awful and here is George who in a way has very different opinions then.
In fact sort of left the -- and -- kind of joking to my producer I said you know maybe -- -- Iran Obama.
Now that's that's pretty fascinating so he's a conservative you say well they have the term one -- Kenny of course and it's yeah he's a he's a heretic we -- -- -- -- we look at the Internet or video you can see self reliant.
You are right so the premise of this is what -- 2016 look like if in fact Barack Obama gets another term.
Well what it looked like.
Well Obama's agenda as I see this twofold he has been expanding the power of the state at home.
And he has been shrinking the power of America in the world and he's doing both things simultaneously.
So when the film explores -- why's he doing it and second.
If we cut him loose so in the second term the president can be himself he's not tethered to public opinion he can goal in the direction that he wants.
I and I think what that means is a -- there are shrinking of America's role and look what look at the Middle East.
We have seen Iran.
And we have seen Egypt to slide into the radical Muslim orbit and Libya recently so what's the -- most important country in the Middle East Syria but Saudi Arabia Saudi Arabia now imagine the radical Muslims got Saudi Arabia.
Then you would have all that three major countries of the Middle East Jordan's hanging in the -- Jordan's hanging in the balance.
This is what I call the united states of Islam I think what we we will be well the harsh words I think we're watching the rise of radical islamists.
And the Middle East North Africa.
Led by Iran seeking nuclear weapons and -- not only this president has any clue.
He had no idea of the Muslim Brotherhood would take over I did you did others did very.
Very few people who our president didn't see that come well if you didn't see it coming though he did notify the military the Egyptian military step aside and torn over power for the united as a Muslim brother role will cut off -- kinds Obama.
Well anyway fascinating interview with the with the presidents brother and and and Kenya.
And thanks for being with us it's a pleasure.
