Controversial anti-Obama filmmaker in town for FreeCapitalismNow.com
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 22

WHAT: Filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza visits Chicago for a VIP film screening and audience Q&A about his hit film "2016: Obama's America."
The D'Souza event is being hosted by Chicago-based FreeCapitalismNow.com.
"Chicago may be the President's adopted hometown but how many Chicagoans know the real Barack Obama? I am coming to help Chicagoans get the side of the story that has been hidden from them for the last four years," says D'Souza.
"Regretfully, the Illinois Republican Party has written off Illinois in the presidential election and is more concerned with Rep. Aaron Schock's abs," says William J. Kelly, Chairman of FreeCapitalismNow.com. "That is why we are bringing Dinesh D'Souza to Chicago. Everyone - especially Chicagoans - need to see this film."
The surprise hit film broke the $30 million mark last weekend and has now surpassed Al Gore's "Inconvenient Truth" and three of Michael Moore's films - making it the second largest political documentary of all time.
William J. Kelly is the Chairman of FreeCapitalismNow.com, which has launched a PSA campaign to promote capitalism. He is the founder of an Emmy award-winning TV production house and was a former statewide candidate for Illinois comptroller in 2010.
