I have watched this movie and it is disturbing. But is it true? Fact checkers on both sides have delved into the "evidence" and have drawn conclusions. What are your opinions of this movie and its credibility?
D'Souza then goes through a list of actions Obama has taken as president to support his thesis. Many of them don't hold water:
— D'Souza rightly argues that the national debt has risen to $16 trillion under Obama. But the film makes a passing reference to the growth of debt that occurred under Obama's predecessor, Republican George W. Bush, and does not address the 2008 global financial crisis that provoked a shock to the U.S. economy.
— D'Souza says Obama is "weirdly sympathetic to Muslim jihadists" in Afghanistan and Pakistan. He does not mention that Obama ordered the raid that killed Osama bin Laden and the drone strikes that have killed dozens of other terrorists in the region.
—D'Souza wrongly claims that Obama wants to return control of the Falkland Islands from Britain to Argentina. The U.S. refused in April to endorse a final declaration on Argentina's claim to the islands at the Summit of the Americas, provoking criticism from other Latin American nations.
—D'Souza says Obama has "done nothing" to impede Iran's nuclear ambitions, despite the severe trade and economic sanctions his administration has imposed on that country to halt its suspected nuclear program. Obama opposes a near-term military strike on Iran, either by the U.S. or Israel, although he says the U.S. will never tolerate a nuclear-armed Iran.
— D'Souza says Obama removed a bust of British Prime Minister Winston Churchill from the Oval Office because Churchill represented British colonialism. White House curator William Allman said the bust, which had been on loan, was already scheduled to be returned before Obama took office. Another bust of Churchill is on display in the president's private residence, the White House says.
D'Souza imparts more information about Obama in his two-hour movie than the mainstream media has presented in the last four years. The movie is highly accurate in its details and presents them in a scholarly and organized fashion. The mainstream media is predictably denouncing the movie and questioning its factual accuracy.
Barack Obama's life's work has always been to bring about socialist revolution in the United States. Obama's primary motivational drivers are socialist ideology and racialism. The answer to the question "Who is Barack Obama and what is he up to?" is really quite clear: Barack Hussein Obama is a radical socialist revolutionary, and his mission is to transform the United States of America into a socialist state.

Is it true?
"It’s not every day that a guy provokes the rage of the President of the United States. Now the President has launched a ferocious attack against me and my film 2016: Obama’s America. Posting his comment on barackobama.com, Obama calls the film “an insidious attempt to dishonestly smear” him by engaging in “subterranean conspiracy theories and false, partisan attacks.”
"For weeks the President tried to ignore the film, no doubt hoping that it would go away. Unfortunately for Obama, the film has continued to gain momentum. It has been seen by more than 2 million people, earned more than $27 million, and become the second biggest political documentary of all time. "
