Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza is optimistic about being cleared of a federal charge of arranging excessive campaign contributions to a Senate candidate.

"The case is scheduled to go to trial in May, around May 19 or 20. I'll be in court and it's going to take a few days and hopefully be resolved," D'Souza told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV on Thursday.

In the meantime, D'Souza said, he is hard at work on the final cut of his new film "America," which imagines what the world might look like if the United States did not exist.

Story continues below video.



"I'm working really hard to complete 'America.' We're in the editing stage now and it's going to be a very unique and powerful film," D'Souza said.

"The philosopher Edmund Burke once said, 'to love our country, our country should be lovely.' And that's what this film is about. It's about why America is lovely, what is at stake, and what Americans can do to protect and save our country."

D'Souza, a conservative commentator and best-selling author who made the 2012 documentary "2016: Obama's America," was indicted by a federal grand jury in January.

The indictment says that in the summer of 2012, he reimbursed people whom he had directed to contribute $20,000 to the campaign. The candidate has been identified by the media as Wendy Long, a Republican who lost heavily to New York Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand last year.

An attorney for D'Souza contended his actions were "at worst" an act of misguided friendship toward the candidate. Some supporters believe the charge was lodged as payback for the film, which was critical of the president.

D'Souza, 52, a former policy adviser to President Ronald Reagan with professional affiliations to conservative organizations such as the American Enterprise Institute and the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, believes the Obama administration wants to remake the world.

"Obama has an ideology, he wants to make America very different than it is. He would love to see the American era, which began in 1945, come to an end. He doesn’t want America to be the world's sole superpower," D'Souza said.

"Now you can't remake America in two years or four years, maybe not even in eight years, but you sure can do it in 16 years and that's sort of Obama's long-term plan.

"He wants to make a baton hand-off to a hand-picked successor so that his project can be completed, if not by 2016, then shortly thereafter."

Obama, he believes, is "trying to reduce America's footprint" globally.

"He's also a redistributionist not just in America but on the global scale. So he wants to redistribute money within America, yes, but he also wants to redistribute money away from America to the rest of the world and America's debt is part of a way to do this," D'Souza said.

"A lot of our debt now is owed to foreigners, so when we accumulate this staggering debt, we're essentially shoveling dollars away from the United States and toward Kuwaitis and Saudis and Chinese and so on."

He said some people fear Obama was going to become "something of a new Jesse Jackson, kind of the angry black guy with all kinds of racial reparations and affirmative action.

"Obama wasn't that. So the whole country heaved a huge sigh of relief and said, 'all right, this is wonderful, we're getting an African-American president who's not going to be, if you will, a partisan for black causes.'

"'He'll be the president for the whole country.' What they didn't realize is that Obama has an even more radical agenda. Now, it's not a race-based agenda, but it is an agenda of global redistribution and Obama has been able to get away with it with almost no media scrutiny."
