Ep. 312: This Podcast and Palestine Before October 7th

On today's episode of Rumble, Michael reflects on the continued onslaught against the people of Gaza by Benjamin Netanyahu and the bombs the US is sending him. As history repeats itself, Michael looks back on previous discussions of the Palestinian struggle on Rumble to talk about how journalists both here and in Palestine have been persecuted, how a one state solution is the real path to peace, and how visiting occupied Palestine as a young journalist changed him.

Ep. 311: Down is Up, War Is Peace, Ignorance is Strength — or, There Is No Such Thing as Abdominal Surgery, and Why You’re Afraid Trump Could Win.

On today’s podcast with Michael Moore, Mike answers the burning questions surrounding the disappearance of the Princess of Wales and then dumps a bucket of ice water on us so we can wake up and finally admit the Central Truths we didn’t want to acknowledge in 2016: A. Trump is smarter than us. If you don’t think so,. then stop right now and tell me how YOU could get elected President while sexually assaulting women (then bragging about it); lying about your worth in order to defraud banks and not pay your taxes; and finally ordering state officials to stuff a ballot box with 11,780 nonexistent votes for you. He may be an idiot and a bigot, but he’s also an evil genius (with the emphasis on genius). B. Trump has never been convicted of a crime, and has never spent a single night in jail. How delusional do we have to be to believe that after a 50-year career of Trump committing one perfect crime after another that suddenly now his unbroken streak of evading the law is going to come to an end?! C. The Special Prosecutor will not save us. Fani Willis will not save us. The Trump-appointed Bankers Boxes judge will not save us. The electoral college will definitely not save us. Joe Biden’s campaign staff will not save us. Stormy Daniels will not save us. The only ones who can save us is ourselves. Are you ready?

Ep. 310: Biden Must Save Biden From Himself. It's the Only Way to Ensure Trump Never Sets Foot in the Oval Office Again.

Over 100,000 Michigan voters in the Democratic Presidential Primary last week sent a message to Biden. Their message was strong and clear: End this war. Stop funding Israel's slaughter. Young voters in this 21st century will not support a president who funds a massacre, and if Biden continues to ignore the wishes of the vast majority of Americans, he will lose thousands of people in November who simply won't vote, and Trump will win by default.

Ep. 309: In Michigan Tuesday, We Ask the President to Listen to Michigan

Stunned by his refusal to stop funding Netanyahu’s slaughter in Gaza with our tax dollars — an action that may return Trump to the Oval Office — thousands in Michigan who are demanding an immediate ceasefire, including the statewide teachers union, the United Auto Workers, the National Nurses Union and the union of flight attendants(!) plus many others on Tuesday will vote “Uncommitted” to help save Biden from himself… and save the rest of us from a 2nd Term Trump.

Our descent into madness continues. The U.S. blocked a U.N. peace resolution calling for a humanitarian cease-fire in Gaza, three escaped Israeli hostages, waving a white flag, were gunned down by Israeli soldiers, and the U.S. House of Representatives voted to authorize an impeachment inquiry against Biden with zero evidence of wrongdoing — the very definition of a lunacy.

Ep. 298: EMERGENCY PODCAST SYSTEM — INDICTED! RACKETEERING!! It Turns Out Trump Really Is a Mobster.

Just moments ago, as the clock was ready to strike midnight, Fani Willis, the District Attorney of Fulton, Co., Georgia, announced that a citizens Grand Jury has voted to indict former president Donald J. Trump and his 18 Co-Conspirators (including Rudy Giuliani, Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, lawyer John Eastman and others) on 41 counts of racketeering and other criminal acts for conspiring to form an “organized crime enterprise” which attempted to “illegally overturn the 2020 presidential election” through theft, fraud, forgery, impersonating law enforcement, impersonating electors to the Electoral College, and for conspiring with other top elected Republican officials in six other states, plus Republican leaders in the District of Columbia, to overthrow the election and re-seat Trump in the Oval Office for a 2nd term — even though Trump lost the election by 7 million votes. The prosecutor is charging Trump and his crime group under the RICO statutes that are used to convict and imprison those involved in mob-like crimes. The 90-page indictment lists the commission of “161 overt criminal acts” — a breathtaking, comprehensive list of crimes in an enterprise led by Trump (click here to read the actual indictment). The DA spent nearly two years on her extensive investigation. It reads like no stone was left unturned, with a massive amount of evidence obtained by the prosecutors in her office. It also states that there are 30 other “unnamed, unindicted co-conspirators” who may be indicted at a later time. So at least 48 people joined Trump in forming his organized crime family to overthrow our Democracy. Unbelievable. How close did we come to losing this country? This Emergency Podcast System edition of “Rumble with Michael Moore” offers an urgent, immediate analysis of this historic moment — and how We, the People, need to stay thoroughly informed and be as active as we ever have been as citizens of this country. This is not the time to have “Trump Fatigue.” This is the moment to put this traitor on trial and make sure that this criminal who has gotten away with EVERYTHING for over 50 YEARS, finally faces Justice. Please take 18 minutes to listen to how Mike sees the events of last night — and what we must do to make sure this never happens again.

Ep. 297: From Maui to Ohio, It’s a Wildfire of Immense Intensity

Whether it’s the Planet in collapse or a Party out of control, this is a summer of death and hope. Michael Moore breaks down the failure to protect the people of Maui but also the will of the voters in Ohio to stand up for women’s rights. The official cover-up has already begun in Hawaii as those in charge are unable to explain why over a hundred people (or more) had to die. The overwhelming vote last week to stop the Christian jihad against the majority gender was breathtaking, considering it happened in Ohio of all places. It portends a massive turnout in next year’s presidential election where, if we all do our job and the Democrats show some guts, there won’t be enough bankers boxes left to hide in at Mar-a-Lago. In the meantime, let’s demand that our elected representatives send help to Maui, and each of us do what we can to contribute to the recovery.

Ep. 296: He Actually Left His Heart with All of Us

Twelve days after the passing of Tony Bennett, Michael Moore shares his encounters with this truly great American. From the first time they met 33 years ago, to the times they often sat in attendance a grade school band concert, to Tony’s participation in the Selma March, his Bronze Star in the army in WWII for helping to liberate a Dachau concentration camp, to being there (along with Harry Belafonte) on the opening night of Mike’s Broadway show. For years, Tony was an accidental mentor to Mike and a source of wisdom on how to make it in this world. This is Michael Moore’s tribute to a good soul who meant a lot to many.

Ep. 294: The Scoundrel Court

Michael Moore celebrates our country’s birthday week by going after the Supreme Court and suggesting ways to remove the Justices who have perjured themselves, been caught taking huge sums of money from billionaires and how all six right-wing Justices have committed various ethical and financial infractions — but have not been sanctioned or removed. Oh, they’ve also taken wholesale rights away from women, the LGBTQ+ community and people of color. Plus, they’ve gutted the EPA, expanded gun “rights,” and killed Biden’s student loan debt relief plan. The Supreme Court is now the most disliked and distrusted government institution in the land. Michael goes over how their removal of the Roe v Wade decision has the vast majority of the country against them now.

Ep. 291: Approval Ratings? Nobody Approves!

What is this — high school? These approval ratings are in a time where most of the country doesn't approve of virtually anything. This concept is so antiquated, the pollsters might as well ask the public, in the presidential race, to vote for "Best Dressed", "Most Likely To Succeed", "Cutest Couple", "Class Clown", "MVP", "Best Smile" and "Most Likely to Bring Back Canadian Beer Through the Windsor Tunnel." In this episode of Rumble, Michael Moore discusses the stupidity of presidential approval ratings and why it doesn't matter how low Biden's is because there still aren't enough Americans willing to return criminal defendant #4913961R to the White House. Says Mike, "Biden could run somebody over in the middle of 5th Avenue and it still won't matter. He will get a second term — and your brother-in-law is still not invited to Thanksgiving dinner this year."

A Tale of Two Bills: How in just weeks, the majority of Americans have categorically ghosted the GOP

Because Republicans and Trumpsters know they are unable put down their own suicide pills, they soldier on in denying women (the majority gender) their basic reproductive rights — and they continue making it so easy for mass killers to buy as many assault rifles as they want (according to The New Republic, American citizens have now stockpiled 400 million guns in their homes, more than the entire US armed forces, Dept. of Homeland Security, and all local police agencies combined). And women, young adults and people of color, by a large margin, hate the Right for making this happen. On top of all of that, Republicans tried to remove from office two young elected Black Tennessee House members for standing up against this gun violence, thus denying 175,000 Tennesseans their voice in the State Capitol. Millions of young voters have sent their anti-Republican memes and TikToks everywhere and they will determinedly continue their decades-long rejection of this old, stale, rotten Party. In this episode of his Rumble podcast, Michael Moore explores the impending end of a GOP hell-bent on throwing themselves over a cliff.

Ep. 287: EMERGENCY PODCAST SYSTEM — Democracy Suspended in Tennessee

When you’re young, you can only take so much b.s. And when you watch a bunch of older white racist Southern men — i.e., the Republican supermajority of the Tennessee House of Representatives — attack two young black elected House members for “improper decorum” when they spoke out against gun violence just two days after the mass school shooting last week in Nashville, well racist acts are nothing new to the state where the KKK was born. So last night the Tennessee House Republicans expelled the two young Black Democratic representatives for daring to give voice to those too young to vote — but old enough to be killed at school. It was a stunning moment in the fight against those who seek to destroy our Democracy. In this Emergency Podcast System episode of Rumble, recorded moments after the final vote, Mike reveals the silver lining: the more young adults who watch the footage of this travesty, the sooner we will witness the eventual demise of the white man’s Republican Party. ******************** Watch the Tennessee House debate and vote on Resolutions to remove Democratic Representatives Justin Jones, Gloria Johnson, and Justin Pearson online at C-Span.org: https://www.c-span.org/video/?527219-1/tennessee-general-assembly-votes-expel-democrats&live&vod ******************** Write to Mike: [email protected] --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/rumble-with-michael-moore/message

A week later, he finally realized why. Under the guise of transparency, we are being lied to — including by Memphis police chief Cerelyn Davis.

Ep. 279: Blue Dots in a Red Sea Pt 11: The Ballot Proposal. Yes, you can pass a law.

We are often told that we are led by a “government of the people, by the people, for the people.” But being a liberal/left/progressive/Democrat in a red state, run by a red legislature intent on banning books, suppressing the vote of its Black and Brown citizens, and stripping women of their right to bodily autonomy, it can feel more like you’re living in a 16th century Christian state or last week in Alabama. And change seems at best improbable, but most often impossible. Yet, 26 states — including a bunch of red states like Mississippi, Florida, Wyoming and more — offer a clear path for citizens to create change and pass laws themselves, through ballot initiatives. That’s how a red state like Nebraska raised its minimum wage by nearly 70%, how a red state like Montana legalized marijuana, and how Michigan was able to break free from its gerrymandered red chains and turn blue. In episode 11 of Michael Moore's Rumble miniseries “Blue Dots in a Red Sea,” he encourage those that live in states (or the District of Columbia) that allow citizen-led ballot proposals to use this incredible tool in this 2024 election cycle. And for those that live in states that don’t, to implore their state legislatures — especially in blue states like New York — to change that!

Ep. 278: Blue Dots in a Red Sea Pt 10: Recruit and Run a Beloved Blue Winner

Perhaps the most important job your new Blue Man and Woman Group needs to do is to find candidates to run as Democrats and win! In a red county! The last three national elections in 2018, 2020 and 2022 saw many liberal/left/progressive Democrats defeat Republicans in red states and counties across America. Every district, every county in the red states has thousands of people who are pro-choice, pro-earth, anti-racist, anti-gerrymandering and believe the way you believe. If you are forming a new group of like-minded people in your area, make one of your first jobs be candidate recruitment. You must find the right people to run in 2024. Not the same old well-meaning folks who always lose. New blood! Fresh faces! Women, young adults, beloved citizens of your town. Not politician types. Just good people who will listen to voters and work hard to win their votes. Community heroes, progressive preachers, Girl Scout leaders, everyone’s favorite English teacher. When they run as Democrats, especially in red areas, now they often win. The effort to find the right candidates must happen now. Get with your friends and brainstorm a list.

Ep. 278: "Blue Dots in a Red Sea" Part 10: Recruit and Run a Beloved Blue Winner

Perhaps the most important job your new Blue Man and Woman Group needs to do is to find candidates to run as Democrats and win! In a red county! The last three national elections in 2018, 2020 and 2022 saw many liberal/left/progressive Democrats defeat Republicans in red states and counties across America. Every district, every county in the red states has thousands of people who are pro-choice, pro-earth, anti-racist, anti-gerrymandering and believe the way you believe. If you are forming a new group of like-minded people in your area, make one of your first jobs be candidate recruitment. You must find the right people to run in 2024. Not the same old well-meaning folks who always lose. New blood! Fresh faces! Women, young adults, beloved citizens of your town. Not politician types. Just good people who will listen to voters and work hard to win their votes. Community heroes, progressive preachers, Girl Scout leaders, everyone’s favorite English teacher. When they run as Democrats, especially in red areas, now they often win. The effort to find the right candidates must happen now. Get with your friends and brainstorm a list. The right candidates exist on your street. In this episode of Rumble, Michael Moore lays out how progressives can win in red districts. It all comes down to casting!

Ep. 276: Madness and Pandemonium Consume House Republicans as Their Party Enters Its Final Year(s)

One by one, the wheels come off the clown car in the Best Comedy of the decade. On the first day of the 118th Congress, in a performance not witnessed by this nation in nearly 170 years, the House Republicans chose to commit a mass murder-suicide of their last vestige of electoral political power, putting on a humiliating show to the world, and offering massive relief to all who worried about the damage they might do to the USA over the next two years. We learned yesterday that the only true destruction these MAGA-heads are capable of now is taking their own running leap off the cliff of the Capitol Dome. The irony that these insurrectionist-loving traitors would, just two years later, conduct an actual uprising against themselves is pure, sweet Justice. Michael Moore, on this episode of Rumble, offers his play-by-play review of this mad, insane day, brought to us live on C-SPAN, with the “losing” party in the House looking like the winners, running the show, providing the laugh track and winning every ballot with the most votes for Democrat Hakeem Jeffries as Speaker of the House. Clowns may look scary, but sleep safe tonight America, this batch of Bozos is incapable of doing much harm to anyone other than themselves.

Ep. 275: "Blue Dots in a Red Sea" Part 8: Start Your Own Local Online Paper

Local journalism in the United States is virtually dead. And when there's no free press, eventually there'll be no democracy. And if you live in a red state, it's even worse.  If you live in any red area, you can almost guarantee there is no journalistic watchdog keeping an eye on the local men with the money and the power. What better project for your new Blue group to do than to start up your own online local "newspaper." A little bit of reporting goes a long way, and it's a great place to share your opinions and to explain our agenda. This endeavor can be your public Voice.  Even if it's just a few of you, your neighbors will be happy to have a place to go where they can read about what's really happening in your town. Michael Moore explains how he did a similar thing when he was twenty. Listen and share.

Ep. 273: "Blue Dots in a Red Sea" Part 6: Our Civic Duty — WE Must Attend!

On this Rumble episode of Michael Moore's special podcast series, “Blue Dots in a Red Sea,” Mike asks for all of us to attend one or two school board, town council or County Commission meetings this coming year — to be there as a Democratic/Progressive/Left witness to what the elected officials are up to. In a red, Republican area, they are very used to no one showing up, especially not any liberals or the new Blue group you and your friends are forming. And all you’re doing is just sitting there, quietly observing, taking notes and minding your own business. You will report back to your Blue group via email and social media what happened at the meeting. Maybe nothing happened. That is, until all of a sudden someone on the school board proposed banning a dozen books because they contained “gay characters.” And then that’s your cue to approach the podium during the public comment section, introduce yourself as a representative of the local new Democrats (pause for a second so they can adjust their brains as they’ve never met anybody calling themself a “Democrat” in Red Snake County) and then kindly tell them that your group will not tolerate any kind of bigoted book banning and there will be many more of you at the next meeting. And that’s how change happens. Simply because you showed up. Have a safe New Year’s Eve. Say goodbye to 2022 and let’s get ready to rock the casbah in 2023! The Blue Tsunami is just beginning!
