Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cEvq4xIHmH4&feature=related
Big science has expelled smart new ideas from the classroom ... What they forgot is that every generation has its Rebel! That rebel, Ben Stein (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off) travels the world on his quest, and learns an awe-inspiring truth … that educators and scientists are being ridiculed, denied tenure and even fired – for the crime of merely believing that there might be evidence of design in nature, and that perhaps life is not just the result of accidental, random chance. To which Ben Says: Enough! And then gets busy. NOBODY messes with Ben.

Speech codes. Censorship. Enforced political conformity. Hostility to diversity of opinion. Sensitivity training. We usually associate such things totalitarian regimes, not with the American universities that nurtured the free speech movement.
"When we think of going to college, we think of intellectual freedom. We imagine four years of exploring ideas through energetic, ongoing, critical thinking and debate," Maloney said. "But the reality is very far from the ideal. What most of us don't know is that American college students check their First Amendment rights and individual freedom at the door."
Hailed by the New York Sun as one of "America's most promising" documentary filmmakers, Maloney has assembled a scorching indictment of higher education in America today, one that should make students, parents, trustees, lawmakers, and concerned citizens sit up and take notice. The London Telegraph has called the long-awaited feature-length film "as slick and incisive as anything by Michael Moore."

Fitna
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BgQdZgojOFI
A short film in which Quran verses are shown alongside images from terrorist attacks.
From Wikipedia, 
Fitna (Arabic: فِتْنَة) is a 2008 short political film by Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders with his view on the religion of the Islam. Approximately 17 minutes in length, the movie shows selected excerpts from Suras of the Qur'an, interspersed with media clips and newspaper cuttings showing or describing acts of violence and/or hatred by Muslims. The film attempts to demonstrate that the Qur'an motivates its followers to hate all who violate Islamic teachings. Consequently, the film argues that Islam encourages—among other things—acts of terrorism, antisemitism, violence against women, violence and subjugation of "infidels" and against homosexuals and Islamic universalism. A large part of the film details the influence of Islam on the Netherlands. The film was published on the internet in 2008.[1][2] Shortly before its release, its announcement was suspended from its website by the American provider because of the perceived controversy.[3][4] It stirred a still continuing debate in The Netherlands as well as abroad,[5] and a criminal prosecution.

Geert Wilders Warning to the West...

Geert Wilders lives with a constant death threat over his head. Al-Qaeda has vowed to kill him. As a Dutch parliamentarian and outspoken critic of radical Islam, Mr. Wilders must travel with four bodyguards and sleep in a safe house, each and every night.

His short documentary film, Fitna  set off a firestorm in the Middle East and Western Europe immediately upon its release. The controversial film showed how Islamic terrorists are following the literal dictations of the Quran.

That message can be seen here in this DVD, with striking clarity in film, photographs and a special message from Geert Wilders himself, who came to America with an urgent and terrifying warning: Islam is on the verge of conquering the West.

Free To Choose
http://www.freetochoose.tv/  
Free To Choose is a landmark television series about the interrelationship of personal, political and economic freedom -- ideas that still dominate public policy debates decades after they were first proposed. These are the ideas of Nobel winning economist Milton Friedman and his economist wife, Rose. These ten one-hour programs, filmed on location around the world, have helped millions of people understand the close relationship between the ideas of human and economic freedom. The interaction between these ideas has created, in the United States of America, the richest and freest society the world has ever known. Milton Friedman sees this success threatened when citizens assume that government intervention is the answer to all their problems. In this series, which premiered in the United States on January 11, 1980, Dr. Friedman focuses on basic principles. How do markets work? Why has socialism failed? Can government help economic development? The television series and the book that emerged from it have been watched and read by millions of people around the world. Both have been translated into over two dozen languages.

Commanding Heights - The Battle for the World Economy
at:  http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=1501841691540599090#
This one has a bias to the left but is a fairly good overall look at modern economics.

A global economy, energized by technological change and unprecedented flows of people and money, collapses in the wake of a terrorist attack. The year is 1914.
Worldwide war results, exhausting the resources of the great powers and convincing many that the economic system itself is to blame.
From the ashes of the catastrophe, an intellectual and political struggle ignites between the powers of government and the forces of the marketplace, each determined to reinvent the world’s economic order.
The Battle of Ideas
As the 1980s begin and the Cold War grinds on, the existing world order appears firmly in place. Yet beneath the surface powerful currents are carving away at the economic foundations.
Western democracies still struggle with deficits and inflation, while communism hides the failure of its command economy behind a facade of military might. In Latin America populist dictators strive to thwart foreign economic exploitation, piling up debt and igniting hyperinflation in the process.
The Agony of Reform
With communism discredited, more and more nations harness their fortunes to the global free-market. China, Southeast Asia, India, Eastern Europe, and Latin America all compete to attract the developed world’s investment capital, and tariff barriers fall. In the United States Republican and Democratic administrations both embrace unfettered globalization over the objections of organized labor.

Celsius 41.11 is not a point-by-point refutation of Michael Moore s Fahrenheit 9/11, but it corrects the record on the important misleading themes in Moore s movie, including the 2000 Florida presidential vote, weapons of mass destruction, intelligence failures, and the war on terror. In addition, the film documents Democrat presidential nominee John Kerry s 20-year Senate record, from his flip-flopping on important issues to his intent on reducing funding for America s military and intelligence community, even after the first terrorist attack on American soil. The film also covers the first term of President Bush, his record as a leader in the war on terror, and the stark contrasts between the President and Senator Kerry.

Islam: What the West Needs to Know

An examination of Islam, violence, and the fate of the non-Muslim world. 
98 mins

   Main Idea
Virtually every major Western leader has over the past several years expressed the view that Islam is a peaceful religion and that those who commit violence in its name are fanatics who misinterpret its tenets. This claim, while widely circulated, rarely attracts serious public examination. Relying primarily on Islam’s own sources, this documentary demonstrates that Islam is a violent, expansionary ideology that seeks the destruction or subjugation of other faiths, cultures, and systems of government.

Content
The documentary consists of original interviews, citations from Islamic texts, Islamic artwork, computer-animated maps, footage of Western leaders, and Islamic television broadcasts. Its tone is sober, methodical, and compelling.

Outline of the Documentary
Introduction
We hear from prominent Western leaders that Islam is peaceful and that those who commit violence in its name are heterodox fanatics.

Part 1: ‘There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his Prophet’
Our interviewees affirm their belief that Islamic violence is entirely orthodox behavior for Muslims and stems directly from the teachings and example of the Prophet Muhammad and the commands of the Koran. We learn that the example of Muhammad is one of a violent warlord who killed numerous people. The Koran – the verbatim words of Allah – prescribes violence against non-Muslims and Muhammad is the perfect example of the Koran in action.

Part 2: The Struggle
We learn that jihad, while literally meaning 'struggle', in fact denotes war fought against non-Muslims in order to bring the rule of Islamic law to the world. Violent death in jihad is, according to the Koran, the only assurance of salvation. One of our interviewees tells of his personal involvement in terrorism and his leaving Islam.

Part 3: Expansion
Following the death of Muhammad, his 'rightly-guided' successors carried his wars to three continents, fighting, enslaving, and massacring countless Christians, Jews, Zoroastrians, Hindus, and others. Islam did not spread through evangelism or through its natural appeal, but through aggressive wars of conquest. The Crusades were largely a belated response on the part of Christian Europe to rescue Christians in the Holy Land suffering under Muslim oppression. The Muslim world today, while no longer the unified empire of the Caliphs, is exceptional for being responsible for the vast majority of conflicts around the world and for almost all of international terrorism.

Part 4: ‘War is Deceit’
A great problem with Western efforts to understand Islam is due to the Islamic principle of 'religious deception', which enjoins Muslims to deceive non-Muslims in order to advance the cause of Islam. Muslim groups today in the West employ deception and omission to give the impression that 'Islam is a religion of peace', an utter fiction.

Part 5: More than a Religion
The most important characteristic of Islam not understood by the West is that it is more a system of government than a personal religion. Throughout its history, Islam has never recognized a distinction between the religious and the secular/political. Islamic law governs every aspect of religious, political, and personal action, which amounts to a form of totalitarianism that is divinely enjoined to dominate the world, analogous in many ways to Communism.

Part 6: The House of War
Islamic theology divides the world into two spheres locked in perpetual combat, dar al-Islam (House of Islam - where Islamic law predominates), and dar al-harb (House of War - the rest of the world). It is incumbent on dar al-Islam to fight and conquer dar al-harb and permanently assimilate it. Muslims in Western nations are called to subvert the secular regimes in which they now live in accordance with Allah's command. Due to political correctness and general government and media irresponsibility, the danger posed by observant Muslims in the West remains largely unappreciated

Michael & Me
http://www.tagtele.com/videos/voir/38618

Michael & Me is an independent, self-financed 2005 DVD documentary created by Los Angeles-based radio and television talk show host Larry Elder. His documentary attempts to disprove statements made by filmmaker Michael Moore in his 2002 propaganda documentary Bowling for Columbine. about the relationship between American culture, gun ownership and increased violence. The documentary mirrors Moore's landmark 1989 documentary, Roger & Me, in tone and interview style.

Michael Moore Hates America
at:   http://www.youtube.com/user/Chengy8

The controversial documentary by Michael Wilson examines the filmmaking methods of Director Michael Moore ("Fahrenheit 9/11", "Bowling for Columbine", "Roger & Me") and finds that not all is as it seems in the world of Hollywood documentaries. With the goal of getting an interview with the increasingly embittered and elusive Moore, Michael Wilson travels the country to tell the inspiring story of a nation and its everyday people, resulting in a film so honest and surprisingly self-critical that it will never win the top prize at Cannes.
Incorporating interviews with well-known cultural figures such as Albert Maysles, Andrew Breitbart, David Hardy, Dinesh D'Souza, Penn Jillette, J.C. Watts, David Horowitz and others, "Michael Moore Hates America" examines the present cultural dialogue in the United States, highlighting the often shrill and misleading style of Moore's documentaries in particular. See the film that Variety writes is "far more jocular, good-natured and thoughtful than Moore partisans might expect" and that Ebert and Roeper give Two Thumbs Up!

Wilson's main criticism is that Moore misrepresents the truth by (1) staging events and (2) deftly cutting sequences to distort the truth. As an example of (1), Michael Wilson offers the scene in Bowling for Columbine where Michael Moore gets a gun on opening a bank account. An interview with the bank employees makes clear that Michael Moore had arranged for the gun to be delivered to the bank ahead of time so he could walk outside with it immediately after opening the bank account. As an example of (2), Michael Wilson offers the scenes in Bowling for Columbine of NRA president Charlton Heston speaking. The scenes are cut together from different speeches; however, in the film they may be construed to be from one speech given shortly after the Columbine shooting at a meeting in Denver.

Terrorists Among Us - Jihad in America
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5UzmCru55Xc

A DOCUMENTARY was published in 1993 entitled Terrorists Among Us - Jihad in America. It is amazing that something like this could be aired seven or eight years before the Twin Towers came down and yet September 11th came as a complete surprise to almost all of us.

In this documentary, you'll see footage of Islamic rallies taking place in Kansas City and New Jersey. The filmmaker, Steven Emerson, secretly filmed these meetings. You hear and see speakers calling on their Muslim brothers in America to kill Americans, Jews and Christians.

The documentary also shows how terrorism in America is funded. Islamic extremists raise money, often under false pretenses, saying the money is to help children or build hospitals, but it is used to buy guns, bomb ingredients, and combat training. People in America who have spoken against these groups have been assassinated, here in the U.S.

This is an eye-opening documentary about terrorism in America. Buy it and share it with your friends. Islamic terrorists are a real threat, even on our own soil as they use our guaranteed rights against us. They use the rights of free speech, bearing arms, and practicing any religion to try to destroy free speech and freedom of religion.
