Easter Dinner Reflections... Or, How I Wish We Weren't Having Ham
I think I need to make a movie.
Or bring back my weekly series to TV. Or stand on a stage and howl. Or something. Or anything. Or all of it.
Sure, I'm doing my bit as a citizen -- every single day. But what am I doing with my job -- as a filmmaker, as a writer, as an artist? Art? Now? In a time like this? Perhaps even more so because of a time like this.
It's all happening so fast -- the daily dismantling of sections of our government, bombing Syria, threatening war on nuclear North Korea, allowing states to defund Planned Parenthood, eliminating all programs to fight climate, and now trying to turn the Supreme Court into a right-wing junta for the next 40 years.
I've had to ask myself, what else can I, Michael Moore, personally be doing -- me -- with my own creative energies?
So, for the past few weeks, I've been on fire. Not the "strike-a-match-and-set-myself-on-fire" kind of fire. I mean the one where your mind just explodes with ideas, with creativity, with a sort of gleeful mad energy and you just can't stop. That fire that gets lit under you when you no longer have any other choice. A crazy thought enters your mind: "Can a simple movie actually bring down a sitting president of the United States?" Can an urgent, funny TV series meant to reach the people who watch wrestling and the shopping channels actually move them to a better place? Can I go somewhere where I can just walk out and say whatever the eff I want and suddenly some citizens might be moved to peacefully, legally take him down... and take him down NOW?
Ok, I know, I'm dreaming. But maybe I'm not. Maybe I don't want the ham this Easter. Maybe I'm going to go do what I do for a living and do MORE of it because I believe art and humor and all of us unleashing every ounce of creativity we have within us is what's going to stop this insanity.
And with that, I'll now ask someone to please pass me a yam... ... See MoreSee Less

Happy Easter, Michael Moore!! You have no idea how much you inspire so many! (myself included) or how much you are loved, respected and admired by multitudes of people who feel exactly as you do!! Thank God there are people like you in our country who have a platform to voice the insanity our country is experiencing under this administration!! ...and thank YOU, Michael Moore for all you do, have done and will continue to do to truly make America great again! Much love!! <3
We need you to draw attention in ways that others (like Samantha Bee and John Oliver) haven't been able to. In all honesty, you should run for Congress next year as a Democrat. Use your profile to bring the party back to the people and away from its corrupt corporatism.
You have a gift of deep insight and the ability to communicate clearly. Please remember to take good care of yourself...it is so challenging in times like these. We must prepare for a long and hard fight, but Michael you give so many so much HOPE and leadership. Enjoy your Easter celebration. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication to making the world a better place. HUGS TO YOU TOO.
I "yam" with you,Michael. lol
Keep up the pressure on him - you ARE doing something good for global peace. Keep speaking out. You may be the best possible person to give voice to this farce (hopefully in one act!!)
Michael Moore, I challenge you to name 1 thing you have actually accomplished while "doing your bit as a citizen". No, throwing a tantrum is not an accomplishment. What has changed because of you? I'm pretty sure, you are for no reason.
Sicko completely changed the way I thought about healthcare. What you do matters ... one mind at a time. This is not just about a crazy man in office ... but how so many could vote for him. Never again. Through changed hearts and minds.
Oh..oh..oh..poor you! To eat ham or not to eat ham..that is the question? Maybe the question should be, "How many Americans haven't got that choice because they have no food to choose from." But keep up the dividing of your country. I can see you are successful.
Micheal Moore I wish you nothing but failure in all you do. You are one of the biggest narcissists I can think of besides Barack Obama. You think that any opinion other than yours should be subject to impeachment, reversal, etc. what makes you think you know what's right? Why are liberals acting this way during this presidential cycle when the right did not do this to Obama? You are petty, sore losers who think they are smarter than anyone else. Hate to break it to you but you are a bunch of spoiled, overrated chumps!!! You profess to want peace and togetherness yet you practice the opposite. SHAME ON YOU and everyone who is stupid enough to follow you. Keep on eating the ham, bacon, carbs, etc. Maybe you'll reach a better place!
Lol why don't you concentrate your efforts on north Korea who just wants to kill us all in the USA. I know maybe a anti propaganda movie combating the isis recruitment efforts, think outward not inward.
You go Michael Moore! You are such an inspiration to so many...please make another movie and above all, "keep the hope" that you have shared with all of us!
Thank goodness I see insanity differently.. Insanity to me is evidenced by those on the left whose single focused hypocritical vision of the world shut's out and refutes all opinions counter to their own..To this left wing element all roads must be direct and one way neaning there are no alternate routes.. Michael Moore obviously travels the one way highway of a very, very screwed up mind...
I got to that place too Michael. I wondered what can little old me do to help with such a great big problem, and then I realized I could use what I learned in school to help. I'm a practicing psychotherapist and I decided to do pro bono telephone sessions to any resistors who are feeling burned out, anxious etc. I can be found on Psychology Today. I have a skill that might be useful and I'm willing to do my part to help. Resist! Persist!
Can you organize Hollywood to fund a democrat in a red state? Can we do some mobilizing in red states? Look what happened in Kansas and let's watch Georgia. We have to work on 2018
How did the French resistance do it? Surely there must be resistors somewhere who have access to his tax returns. Any way we can ensure financial help to people who might be tempted to whistle blow but are worried about loosing their jobs? Marching in the streets is good but some covert investigative operations by an underground resistance is better.
Happy Easter Michael. I've always enjoyed whichever topic you've chosen to tackle in your films. After the election, I was really thinking that many Republican voters are influenced by what they listen to as they drive in rural areas around America. People in rural areas often drive long distances and spend a ton of time in their car. If they are radio listeners, there isn't a lot of choice. AM talk is often what they land on. So, they are brainwashed by repetitive topics, circular talk, nonsense at times. I would love for you to do a film on propaganda and influence. Especially when it relates to elections, which are the foundation all other issues have to be built on. A little side note: My mom is a die hard AM talk radio listener. She is a smart lady, but Republican talk radio has really dumbed her thinking down. Recently, I introduced her to TED Talks. She'd never heard of them. After watching a Jonathan Haight talk about how Republicans and Democrats can't even understand each other, she said to me, "That was one of the most intelligent things I've heard in years." It just broke my heart, because Right-wing radio has brainwashed and destroyed smart people in this country.
MAKE THAT MOVIE! MAKE THAT MOVIE! You're the only one who can do it right. Not that long ago we were all praying that you would get well from that terrible bought of pneumonia that you had. This is your chance to make the biggest most important documentary of your life!
Michael, please take care of yourself....eat right and exercise. We NEED your inspiration and leadership. Read the book "Hillbilly Elegy" by JD Vance to understand why some people voted for Trump. When you make your movie, target those folks as your audience. They need to be awakened, and you are the one who can do it!
I read through all of your posted comments and boy oh boy do I disagree with everyone of you. The hatred shown to OUR New president is sickening at best and downright disrespectful at worst. Be thankful Trump beat out his unworthy opponent, he and his team will take us all to a better America, and believe me, you all will be thanking him for keeping you alive and hopefully prosperous. Have a nice day folks. 🙂 I will knowing Trump is OUR President for the perhaps next eight years.
I pray every night that when I wake in the morning, he will be gone. We need to find the secret that will instantly bring him and the republicans down forever. It's out there. We just need to find it. The golden shower or whatever he's done. This fake crap with north korea and russia is a ruse so they can make more plans. Who's coming into the White House in the dead of night that he doesn't want us to know about. I think it's McConnell and Ryan. They are up to their necks in this as are most of the republicans. Spycams anyone?
If you would use all the time energy and money on making things better for America that would be more valuable than the damage you are doing. Why do you feel so important and feel called to destroy a sitting President that We voted into office. We were silent when you voted in Obama for 8 horrible years. Now it's our turn. Focus on making yourself a better person. We are so happy for Trump and are finally not an embarrassment to the world. GO TRUMP!
We have to activate the apathetic non-voters who say they don't care about politics. Politics cares about them and will do a lot of damage to their future lives if they don't.
Delusional ! The President really doesnt care what you do or say and neither do most people. Why not use your talent for something constructive instead of tearing things down? Movies about helping people get back on their feet or veteran success stories are far better than tearing down the very country that allows you to do what you do. Happy Easter anyway Gods son died for you too!
Hmmm apparently you think your movie would actually have that much sway on average "wrestling watching" Americans. You condescending fuck! How dare you. You have no idea what the average American wants and needs. Shit up and eat the HAM!
I have spent the last 30 minutes (wasted) reading comments from conspiracy theories,star trek,vegan and winey poor excuses from American citizens with no patriotic backbone. I was raised to be a proud American to stand behind our country. Michael Moore if you are as great as you think and your followers think you are why not do something good with your time or keep mixing your spineless kool-aid so you can keep making money off the media hipe the brain dead keep absorbing.
I'm proud to have my theater, the State Theatre of Traverse City, MI, joining with 200 other cinemas across the country tonight, all of us showing the film "1984" at once. These are dangerous times. Do your part. Feed your head. War is NOT peace. Lies are NOT facts. Jared is NOT a diplomat. ... See MoreSee Less

I attended "1984" tonight in a filled State Theatre in Traverse City. Thank you for offering the film to Northwest Michigan!
George Orwell's 1984, big brother is watching you, no right to privacy, truth is distorted. Sound familiar? Trump just signed away people's right to a private browsing history, talks about fake news, lies about everything, distorts history especially Obama's record. How long before Alt. Facts starts insisting that two and two is five? Hmmm.
And so it begins!! "A nation can survive its' fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves among those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the galleys, heard in the very hall of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor--He speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and wears their face and their garment, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation--he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city--he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared." Cicero, 42 B.C., Roman Statesman, orator, and author. 45 administration! and this next generation has to be reminded how easily freedom can be taken away!! We the people have to stop this!! Wake up America!
"he went to jared" not what you want to hear in reference to international diplomacy.
I just watched the Manchurian Candidate and it was eerily chilling. I guess I'll have to see 1984 next. Just so I'll be up on current events.
Michael Moore PLEASE watch the new documentary What The Health. It's made by the team behind Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret. Everyone needs to see what is going on with the food industry, progressives need to open their eyes here! Please everyone check out these really well regarded documentaries that can help save the planet. And us.
And the blood of 100 Syrians murdered with sarin gas is on Trump's and Tillersonson's hands. Not to mention America's by extension.
It's not "your" theater. get that straight right now. you helped revive it, but you don't own it. it belongs to the community, and to the volunteers that keep it running
Putin has the Executive Branch. Republicans have neutralized the Legislative Branch. If Republicans strip Senate rules to install Gorsuch, they bastardize the Judicial Branch. Game. Set. Match unless there are some patriots left in the Senate Republican party willing to put country first and stop the over throw of our democratic government.
Now is the time for all good men (people) to come to the aid of their Country. ...investigate, Interrogate, indited, impeached, imprisonment. ..Trump, cabinet, staff, advisors, and family
Hopefully people see it for what it is big picture.......and not just for what you want them to. Of course Trump is awful and embodies these themes but so have his predecessors.....people you call heroic and somehow believe to be fundamentally different. Constant war.......endless propaganda.....agencies doing the opposite of what they are called......people being taken in the night.....torture.......indefinate detention.....secret police. This is now true......but the last 8 years have been the same as this garbage. You are a hypocrite.
The irony of Leftists showing 1984...When all they do is vote, beg for and DEMAND that Government be MORE involved in our lives. Step AWAY from the Golden Corral there Jabba.
Fact is the rest of the world sees Trump "speaking publicly" and we shake our heads. He is an illiterate clown. Classic rich boy that's never earnt a cent in his privileged life. Funny thing is his grandfather was an immigrant and a criminal. Watching him speak is physically painful. And filling the white house with his own family what a joke. America has become a circus. Sadly.
1984 watched us @the Academy of Music in Northampton, Mass,( the 6th oldest 🎭 theater in the Country), for free, on a very ☔️ rainy evening. There was a live interview with the director of the movie 🎥 broadcast all over the world 🌎 afterwards too !!!
How long are you folks going to stand for this.....we've been watching all over the world for 2.5 months and it just gets worse and worse.......they say that there are over 400 million guns in the USA, maybe it's time you used them and regain control of your Country.....I hope and pray for you fine folks. None of you deserve any of this shit that is happening......Stand up and be counted, for what you are about to receive.
I am a high school English teacher. "1984" is part of our curriculum. Needless to say, I am aware of how important this book is today. I don't have to give editorial comments; the book presents itself. The Ministry of Truth is alive and powerful.
Just bring your own popcorn and candy bars as you could be sure Michael Moore will have eaten all that all that was for sale.
I went tonight to the #HammerMuseum viewing. As we were filing out, a woman attempted to hand out small post cards on fascism. The Hammer staff stopped her. Guess the overall meaning/message of the film was lost on them. But it was an amazing group of Angelenos who came out to support freedom of thought and true rights
I can't wait to see this! Shut the close minded conservative douches down in every way possible.. say No, to Orwellian times! Privacy & rights r important & need to stay that way.
Best part is, this movie was made so long ago and nothing has changed since then...kinda like airing NETWORK and trying to be prolific. Get off your asses peeps.
The Liberals are the Orwellian ones. Obama expanded the IRS to the point that if you hiccup on your taxes you get letters and phone call. The liberals are the ones guilty of spying and big government .
The problem is that none of the filmed versions really was that great at capturing the novel. I read it when I was... I think 12 or 13 and lots of the novel has stuck with me. I've seen at least two versions of it in movie form and while at least one was good, neither struck me as capturing the full depth of the book...
Promoted by the same group of people who protest against free speech dumb dumbdumb dumb lol. If any of you grasp the movie you might take a good look at the leftwing media and dems + libs actions in the last months.
They set people up.., in Wilmette, il. just to profiteer off of other hard working people. This exact way. So sad for the human race. What assholes.
Haha, so you're going to watch a movie that warns about big government, spying on citizens and controlling speech and thought, whilst advocating for an alternative that has committed those very crimes, and would continue to do so were it still in power? This is very hypocritical. The republicans are hardly any better, but if you're going to preach against these measures. supporting the democrats isn't helping your case.
Yesterday 43 of the 48 Democrats in the Senate said they would filibuster to stop Neil Gorsuch from being put on the Supreme Court. All we needed was 41 so thanks to all of you for making your calls! Now the fight will take place on Friday to stop Gorsuch on the floor of the Senate. Tell your Democratic Senators to stand firm-- and warn the Republicans that if they change the rules, we will take them on. ... See MoreSee Less

Why aren't you (MM) and the dems pushing the fact that this administration should NOT be able to nominate ANYONE while under FBI investigation? That is the path which should be taken.
I don't understand the logic of some Democrats here. Either the Democrats allow a vote and Gorsuch will be confirmed, or they filibuster and the Republicans will use the nuclear option and get him confirmed anyway. Also if the Democrats allow the Gorsuch vote this time and Trumps gets a crack at another appointment, the Republicans will use the same threat again. So if you're going to lose anyway, why don't go down fighting, with the knowledge that the rules will be in your own favour when majorities change back.
The Democrats sat on their hands when the Republicans refused to vote on Garland and when put in this position, the Republicans change the rules in order to push through Gorsuch. Democrats need to grow a pair.
Forcing the Republicans to trigger the nuclear solution would backfire on the Democrats in the future. I know the Rep's behaved disgracefully during Obama's attempts to fill the vacant SCOTUS position, but do we have to sink to their levels? By all accounts the candidate is highly qualified, albeit very conservative. But do we really believe that the next candidate will be any better? I think we should pick our fights carefully, not just emulate the Rep's as the party of 'No'.
TRUMP Lies... Feel free to add to this list, if they are factual, evidence-based, and verifiable... * Lied about Obama's birth certificate. * Lied about his inauguration crowd size. * Lied about mass voter fraud behind his 3 Million vote loss. No evidence to support his claim. * Lied (grossly) about his margin of victory in the electoral college being the largest in modern history. * Lied about Mexico paying for the wall. * Lied about wire tapping from Obama. *Lied about the unemployment rate. * Lied about 'Draining the Swamp', but packed his cabinet with billionaires, lobbyists, and Wall-Streeters. The richest cabinet in history, by-far. * Lied about medical insurance for all. * Lied about thousands of N.J. Muslims celebrating 9/11 on tv. * Lied about Ted Cruz's father assassinating JFK. * Lied about locking up Hillary. * Lied to coal miners getting jobs back. They won't. * Lied about ties to Russia. (Flynn, Manafort, etc) * Lied about American petro-pipeline steel - it's from Russia. * Lied about "failing" N.Y. Times. It's thriving. * Lied about being a Christian. He can't even recite a single Bible verse. TRUMP is a deceptive conman and a christianist - an imposter who tricks, fools, and lures naïve and sinister followers like a Lucifer. This much lying is UNPRECEDENTED...by-far. And he's only been in office for TWO MONTHS. This list will be updated as trump's lies pile up...
This is an imperative.
You know he'll pass despite the Fillibuster right? And from now on, all judges will pass without the 60 votes. Bad news considering who's retiring ...
I called all six. Looks like senator Coon realized the error of his position, or there lack of(on the fence). This was easy, many more that are much more difficult to come. RESIST
And what exactly does that mean ..."we will take them on" ?... so far it seems the only resistance that the Democrats have been able to muster has been to sit back and complain... seriously, is there any avenue whatsoever to stop this run away train? ... The thing is that the GOP has been able to get away with whatever they want, because they have a short-sighted ignorant base cheering them on ... who have no conception of an inclusive democratic republic ... they just want "their side" to win and they don't care (or even understand the implications) of how they do it. Look, these are the same guys who refused to even consider Obama's nominee as required by the constitution ... if the Democrats couldn't do anything about THAT, what makes you think they'll have anything to say about this slap in the face of democracy?
Bravo dems! I don't understand how they could have refused to hear garland in the first place. Isn't that negligence? Shouldn't the senators be held to a standard of due care to do their jobs? Somebody please sue them. Their excuse was not even close to credible. McConnell is one of the least principled, most corrupt senators in the senate. He has no regard for the country he serves. Only pursuing his personal agendas. Disgusting. He needs to be voted out of the senate when up for reelection. Same with nunes and Ryan in their houses.
Give Gorsuch EQUAL TIME as Merrick Garland❗️ 🚩TRUMP is a deceptive conman and a christianist - an imposter who tricks, fools, and lures naïve and sinister followers like a Lucifer✨ Christianist - A person who claims to be a follower of Christian teachings, but actively engages in acts, deeds, and messages that are contrary to the teachings. In short, ignorance of the script of the 'Sermon On The Mount' Matt. 7:15 - Beware of those who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves🐺 Never trust anyone who constantly says "Believe Me!" for he is manipulating you like a serpent🐍 TRUMP is the most deceptive 'leader' this nation has ever seen...by far. Yet some sinister media networks are promoting him more than any candidate or president in history. There's a reason for that. He has repeatedly proven himself to be a greedy, misogynist, xenophobic, narcissist, sexist, gambling casino profiteering, pathological lying conman with the highest unfavorability rating in history - A man who provoked violence at many of his speaking rallies. Only 26% of the electorate voted for him. Half of the electorate did not vote. 74% of the electorate did not vote for him. TRUMP has a serious moral deficiency and a penchant for deception...although many of his more sinister supporters are quite pleased with his deception. Deception is his cornerstone. *Even the most naïve, foolish, and sinister among us are beginning to clearly see his deception on full display. ps...I'm a former christian missionary. Humbly graduated from a top 5 University with a degree in Political Science and Economics...then went on to work as a senior analyst at a Big 4 firm. I'm not a democrat, republican, libertarian or engage in any form of identity politics or religion. I'm not in political bondage anymore. Liberate Yourself. FreeYourMind✨ And Be Aware: Trump is an imposter and pathological liar who is in wayyy over his head.
I have called all of the senators you have listed, the offices of Senators Menendez, Cardin , Leahy and Coons have all informed me that they have and will vote no on Gorsuch. Senator Benet's offices in D.C. and Colorado are not answering and Senator King is supposed to make a decision tomorrow according to the lady who answered the phone.
The filibuster, which can be discarded with a simple majority, has proven to be as useless as the electoral college. There's no reason to save the filibuster for a later date. #FollowBernie
If they change the rules, it will haunt them. Dems are likely to take back the Senate next year, and the White House in 2020. Welcome Supreme Court Justice Barack Obama! 🙂 🙂
Resistance is imperative! Some of us feel the need for a constant reminder to stay vigilant and alert in the face of what is proving to be a terrifying and disastrous presidency. I was inspired by the artist Ai Wei Wei, who is usually referred to as "Chinese dissident Ai Wei Wei" because he has questioned the policies, suppression and corruption of the authoritarian government. With that in mind, I made these wristbands and T-shirts to wear as a reminder of what we need to be for the foreseeable future. I chose the turquoise color, the color of calm, as a reminder of the importance of staying the course and of taking concrete steps toward resisting and fighting oppression. Resist and never give up! In an effort to mitigate the damage that is being done to our country, I will be donating all proceeds to The American Civil Liberties Union, The Southern Poverty Law Center, The Natural Resources Defense Council and Planned Parenthood.

Remember when the Senate Democrats changed the rules and it was the Republicans warning the people wouldn't stand for it? Remember when Independents and Libertarians said changing the rules of Senate voting protocol and decorum would erode our Democratic Republican process? Well hello President Trump and now the chickens have come home to roost in congress, as the Republicans in the Senate will do to the Democrats what the Democrats have done to them. Every single person that divides the country based on political partisanship wether on the left or the right brought this on, and that includes you Mr. Moore.
As much as I like your work Mr Moore, and I mean that sincerely, I think it's important to remember the nuclear option, and even more important to remember that it was democrats under Harry Reid that made it possible in the first place....
The false equivalency of comparing the Democratic resistance movement now to the last six years of Republican obstructionism is LAUGHABLE. Do you think we have no memory? Republicans are absolute hypocrites.
shouldn't be that easy to 'change' the rules. What's next? Next time Dems are in control they make a rule to remove supremes? the GOP are a loathsome bunch.
Hey, I'm all for the Resistance. But please explain to me a) what good the filibuster will do; and b) how we will "take them on". Honestly, just what can we do about it if McConnell uses the nuclear option? How will we handle it if another SCOTUS seat opens up before this madness ends?
Yes thank you. It's great knowing that pettiness continues in our government by ELECTED officials. Who would want a strong and united country? When you don't get your way you should regroup and try to improve matters. Not continue cry baby tactics
The DNC should defund and mark ALL Democrats who support this atrocity for removal in the next election. The GOP wouldn't give the rightful candidate the time of day. Neither should Democrats.
fight fire with fire, so far GOP thinks they can steamroll all the dirty plans they have to make "murika grate", keep strong and let americans know the Dems have not stopped fighting for what is right
it was Harry Reid that changed the process by introducing the nuclear option the repubs dont have to change anything its the dems that are filibustring something that has never been done concerning a supreme court nominee Moore is such a tool
Not Moore had no problem with Harry Reid changing the rules. He sure as hell as never going to "take them on" when Democrats ran the Senate.
Ok, everyone -- this is it! We have ONE job this week and that Is to STOP TRUMP FROM PLACING NEIL GORSUCH ON THE SUPREME COURT!
The Republicans in the U.S. Senate will need 60 votes in order to beat a Democratic filibuster when the vote takes place this Friday. There are 48 Dems in the Senate and 3 of them have already said they are going to vote for Gorsuch! (We will remove them from the Senate when they are up for re-election.) Another 6 have said they are still "undecided." How is that possible? We will need at least 2 of those 6 to commit to opposing Gorsuch and stand with the filibuster.
Here are the 6 undecided Democratic Senators - and their direct lines on Capitol Hill. You must put pressure on them via a phone call today (if it's busy, keep trying; if you get voice mail, leave your message):
Michael Benet (CO)
Chris Coons (DE)
Angus King (ME)
Bob Menendez (NJ)
Ben Cardin (MD)
Pat Leahy (VT)
Call these Senators and tell them you expect them to vote NO on Gorsuch. With a cloud of hanging over Trump -- he and his campaign are under investigation for espionage -- all business like this should be put on hold. A President under investigation for a felony like this should not be allowed to seat anyone on our Supreme Court.
Call the Democrats in the Senate. Tell them you expect them to stand firm against Gorsuch. His views do not represent the majority opinion of the American public.

ANY Democrat who votes yes is a fool.... AND they should lose their seat next election
Just watching this on the news in the U.K. Trump seems determined to make this happen one way or another and seems certain to attempt to change the rules of selection. The news here says it can happen. Is this true? Wish I could do something to help but know this people of the US, this struggle is a global struggle. We are with you. This orange buffoon simply has to go.
I think we can all see where this is going... The Democrats will filibuster, with or without these six, and McConnell will change the rules of the game to win.... And the Democrats can point out the hypocrisy all they want ... but let's face it, hypocrisy has been the default position of the GOP for years, and they get away with it because they have a base that has been brainwashed into believing that gerrymandering, voter suppression, obstruction, and every administrative trick, are all GOOD things, so long as they keep those evil liberals from pursing THEIR agenda. The Republican base have long been taught to oppose every single item that insures a Democratic INCLUSIVE republic... but the real question is what the Democrats can do about it except complain. The entire country, and not just the Congress, White House, and (soon) Supreme Court, have been taken over by oligarchs pretending to be populists, and there is no end in sight... and the irony is that the people who support these anti-democratic measures are the very ones who wave the flag the hardest... yet seem to have no understanding whatsoever as to what that flag represents. So what is the remedy for a party intent on steamrolling over the commonwealth and turning the country into a private piggy bank for the rich? ... they are putting into place all the pieces that will see the end of this little experiment in democracy ... and they are being aided by an electorate too stupid to realize the danger. Frankly all we seem to be able to do is allow them enough rope to hang themselves, resist where we can, and hope by the midterms they will have exposed themselves enough that people will get out and vote for change... that is IF they are still allowing us to vote at all.
I called Joe Donnelley's office and told them I was very upset with his "yes" vote and that I will not vote for him in the primary! 😡😡😡! Dems in Indiana call in and let them know. And vote him OUT in the election!!!!!!!!
Look. I see many here concerned for the rules changing and how it will affect us in the future. Guess what? We don't even know if we'll have a future. We are losing rights and protections that were taken for granted. Let's do something about it NOW!!! The nominee of a man under investigation is not an option! PLUS it's a stolen seat! Let's correct the wrong that was done.
The only reason Bennet is waffling is because Gorsuch is a Colorado boy. I will be calling Bennet and informing him that I voted for him this last election and that he needs to put the welfare of Colorado over the hometown boy. If he votes yes I will vote Bennet out when his term is up.
I think that basically the Republicans shit all over the Constitution, and that any Dem that votes in favor of Gorsuch is holding the toilet paper.
Senator Cardin is voting No. Here's what he posted on FB: I listened closely to Judge Gorsuch's testimony last week. And I've read through many of his rulings and public statements. Combined, I found an extensive legal record that is peppered with examples of putting corporate interests before working Americans, showing hostility to agency decisions that protect our environment, disregard for women's health, marginalizing students with disabilities, and many more troubling decisions. Further, despite his protestations, Judge Gorsuch's record points to a jurist who has not separated his political views from his legal views. I also do not believe that he would serve as an independent check on this president, who has tested the limits of the Constitution and the separation of powers in a way that no other modern president has done. Judge Merrick Garland, who was never even given a hearing, was considered by almost all independent judicial scholars to be mainstream. Judge Gorsuch does not enjoy a similar evaluation. For these reasons, I must vote against his nomination to the Supreme Court.
I know McConnell will do what he said he was going to do but I feel it's important that if this country goes down, I want to be able to tell my children and grandchildren that I did what I could to stop it and that our family was on the right side of history
Just talked to a real person at Senator Leahy's office and he voted No today and will vote No later this week. No to Gorsuch.
We already know how this week’s Neil Gorsuch saga will end: Democrats will filibuster, McConnell and Republicans will change the Senate rules so Gorsuch can be confirmed with 51 votes, and then in late April Gorsuch will take his place on the Supreme Court as one of the most right-wing justices in American history – right up there with Clarence Thomas." Robert Reich
Here's my opinion (coming from a very progressive liberal). Yes, Merrick Garland should be on the Supreme Court. And I think the Republicans are plain awful for the stunt they pulled. And Gorsuch is an absolute nightmare of a human. But would he vote any differently on cases than Scalia would have? Probably not. Now we say, we shouldn't confirm while Trump is under investigation. But if he is convicted at an impeachment or resigns, Pence is President. And Pence would nominate either Gorsuch or some raging lunatic just like him. Ok, so Pence resigns too because he was on the same ticket and is implicated in the collusion. Then PAUL RYAN is the damn President. Do you think his pick will be any better? No, it wouldn't be. And we can't possibly stall until 2020. So we will certainly have a conservative replacing Scalia (which doesn't change the balance of the court). Do we really want to set the precedent of the Repubs using the nuclear option in a war we can't win? One last point: I detest Manchin and Heidtkamp as much as the next liberal. But we have to be REALLY careful when we talk about backing a primary challenger. If we kick out those moderate Dems who mostly vote party lines, our candidate on the ticket loses to the Republican. Our only hope of hanging on to West Virginia and North Dakota right now are with those DINOs. Once the balance shifts back more strongly in our favor, we can primary them. Now is not the time. Again, my opinion.
So ridiculous. Republicans complaining that democrats are being wrong in not supporting Gorsuch. If they don't accept him it is because they don't accept trump won. So they think a new president (as long as republican) is more qualified and best to nominate for the position instead of a President who had 7 years experience as President when he nominated someone for the supreme court seat. They are complaining it is bi-partition and dems are so inappropriate. So they want to changes laws so they can get their way. I wish they would have changed the laws and required them to vote on Garland. There should be a timeline in which they must hold hearings and vote. They just decided they weren't going to at all and now vilifying democrats. Hypocrites and criminals.
Your government is broken. The only thing left for you to do is move to another country. Hard to believe si ce WW2 Germany has become more progressive than the US. Its almost like they freaky friday's their stances.
Of we might want to try to stop the hotheaded Neanderthal from pushing N. Korea into launching missiles at the US. Good time to remember he has the nuclear codes. We need to get him out of the White House ASAP.
Do the democrats realize the secondary effects of blocking Gorsuch and forcing the Republicans of going nuclear? If they go nuclear, it will only make it easier to push through the next couple justices in the next 4, possibly 8 years when current justices kick the bucket. And we all know that Ginsberg is gonna go any minute now. Mark my words...the Dems KNOW this to be reality and are just putting up this dog and pony show but will come short of blocking Gorsuch. This will be evident by the next cycle of candidates (in swing districts) being the ones voting NO, to retain their seats and the long term, "safe" democrats voting YES, in just enough numbers to prevent nuclear option.
Pat Leahy is voting NO on Gorsuch per his office, Mon 4-3 10:53 a.m. PDT. I spoke to a staffer on the phone just now. She said he announced his vote this morning. And, per Vox: On Monday afternoon, Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) told reporters that he would be joining the Democratic filibuster against Gorsuch’s nomination.
According to the Washington Post, Leahy and Coons are a no. www.washingtonpost.com/powerpost/senate-panel-prepares-to-consider-gorsuch-as-threat-of-filibuste...
Michael Moore, we need to fund and defeat the opponents of Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell. Plus any climate change deniers! SUPERFUND of smaller donations? I'd contribute what I could...
It is unbelievable that they should vote on a nominee who avoided answering so many questions. This position is lifetime and it should require forthright answers to critical questions.
No stopping this, even though the Republicans never even gave Garland the courtesy of a hearing....they will use the Nuclear option.
Hi Michael, What about shutting down govt. Altogether before Friday. No actions allowed from a president or govt under FBI. The election should be void. All decisions overturned.
Additional phone numbers for Cardin (the main one is full up): Baltimore: 410-962-4436 Bowie 301-860-0414 Cumberland 301-777-2957 Rockville 301-762-2974 Salisbury 410-546-4520
I say...go for it. Change the rules. Thing is that there are 2 liberal judges who are getting old and 3 conservative judges getting old. So Seems to me that it is possible within the next presidential cycles..some of the conservative judges might need replacing. So change the rules. We will have power back again soon and they will be sorry they played this game.
Way to be American. You reek of hate and we the people know what you sociopaths are about. Leave,go, because President Trump is here to stay and Hillary will NEVER be President. You are appalling and disgraceful. Way to join together. The only ones you are hurting are we the American people. You sociopaths don't give a shit about the people. Always have an agenda and always conditional. Disgrace. . Oh and Gorsuch will be passed and you horrendous idiots need to cope. Stop this!!! Enough! We are all sick of you libs, fkn poor losers.

Michael, can the resistance organize massive protests to members of Congress and massive protests like women's march "specifically" on the kleptocracy issue? Trump,his family, and his cronies are cashing in with impunity. Welcome to life in a banana republic. Elizabeth Warren is trying to confront this issue starting with Carl Icon who hand picked SEC position .
We are just a small farm/goat milk soap business but we are doing what we can to help the ACLU also. We are giving our customers an option to have 15% of their purchase total (online store) donated to ACLU by entering code ACLU. We hope other small businesses will do the same. We're all in this together!
Mr. Moore, taking about rights, i respectfully suggest if you can please come to south america and take a look on how polititian are devasteting the countries. I live in Ecuador, where we had election of president yesterday. The awful govermnet of Rafael Correa made a fraud, so we will have the same party that was int he power the last 10 years, fo toher 4 years. We can stand anymore. Please come and make a research!
Shame this overlaps Bernie time . Hope both can be viewed later in full. Thanks to all who are working for the betterment of the world.
@MMFlint You fat ugly luciferian satan blood drinking cock sucking loser look at your self Good=Trump and Devil Worship Equals Michael Moore
Mr Moore, Just heard you on Indivisible radio program. Should and can Trump tax churches. They seem to be increasingly political. And talk about solving our tax problems. But can tithes be double taxed? I would like to hear your opinion. Than you, Annie (Michigan resident from 1999-2005 - A2 baby!!)
Mr Moore, Thank you for all your brilliant work. Could you consider making a documentary on the torture of dogs in China at the Yulin dogmeat festival. Dogs are skinned alive, tortured and then eaten by people all because they think the meat taste better if the dog is under stress. The torture of these defenseless animals is beyond repugnant. This is not cultural relativism. It is The most extreme torture. Someone of your stature could get the attention of proper law enforcement and government entities.
Oh yes, America, once the heart of anti-war protests, now reduced to screaming like mad at their own President who has never been in politics, and hence has not been the cause of wars... but that doesn't matter, you all want more wealth and prosperity for yourselves, so go ahead, smash windows, burn cars, demand more wealth, threaten your President with bloody murder... while wars engulf the opposite side of the Earth, far from the madding American crowds, mad at themselves, their own selfish wants and small, petty disappointments, just because Republicans got back in.... War protests-valid... Climate protests-valid... Screaming at everything the new President does out of your own pure hate and anger for no real reason but to vent your rage-wasting oxygen.
We also need to get back our rights to internet browsing privacy. I can't believe it's even legal to give permission to sell it.
"The Utterly Abhorrent Psychopathy of Moral Relativism" Eugenicist Margaret Sanger started Planned Parenthood originally to erase, eliminate, and extinguish racially undesirable people from the human gene pool because the "human beings who never should have been born" divert and waste societal resources. Today, the genocidal ghouls and goblins of Planned Parenthood continue to function as extermination engineers at the conveyor belt of industrial death. These "black market" merchants of baby body parts offer a much more "final solution" to the persistent problem of human degeneracy. Planned Parenthood serves to illustrate quite definitively the utterly abhorrent psychopathy of moral relativism. When an individual becomes useless to the collective, designated scientific "experts" defending Hegelian elitism are duly directed by competent legal authority to terminate the discredited defendant deemed as "obsolete" using the most effective, efficient, and useful methods yet devised by a notoriously sinister statist cadre of surreptitiously embedded termites, a dangerously diabolical, deep-state, shadow government of deceitful, bureaucratic administrators. - - - - - "Have you reached a verdict?"

Spin your wheels if you want, but I'll focus on the root of all our problems! If we had fair and honest elections, Ron Paul and the Bern would of won by landslides! Folks, all a person can do is try. As a grandparent I think we try harder as most of us know now the obvious fraud and downright evil forces who have us and our families by our throats! Maybe, in my case anyway, I feel somewhat guilty for not paying closer attention. Anywho I'm wide awake now and trying hard to awaken others and inspire them to get involved--#electionreform ANYONE interested , the group changes a little every week as well as the topic( state to state/ legislation/ discussion of different coalitions) but always surrounding voting and the problems. I feel like it empowers me a little as I'm new to the whole debacle and love getting to meet all the people that have been trying to tackle the issues. I would like to get involved in a meaningful and productive way as I feel it paramount to democracy. All else seems moot without valid, true, transparent and verifiable elections. I'm hoping to attend a physical meeting at some point. Everything is very slow because of course there is no money in it and those in position of power got there through the broken system and have little reason for change. Please consider joining in next week. For more info check out Lulu Friesdat film and website Hollerbackfilm.com

Michael Moore: Time to fight for Medicare for All
Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore argues that in the wake of the failure of the GOP's plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, Democrats should start fighting for single payer health care. ... See MoreSee Less
4 weeks ago
I don't understand why so many Americans dislike Michael. He speaks so much truth, or is that the problem?
Hello America. I'm a surgical nurse working in the NHS in Dundee, Scotland. Our national health service is something us Brits are rightly proud of. Its the best thing Britain has done since the war.. Universal, cradle to grave and free at the point of use. Its not perfect but its a hell of a lot better than you guys deal with. So demand a single payer system, scream it from the rooftops. You deserve a better society the same as the rest of us.
I truly wish that the United States had Universal Healthcare like we do in Canada. Is the system perfect? no. But Freedom should not mean the freedom to suffer and to die from preventable and treatable causes.
Thank you for this!! This is a great interview and I agree with you wholeheartedly. I have been a nurse for 17 years. I have seen the ACA transform our health care system into one that now faces in the direction of social justice and can get there (to single payer) if it is not dismantled. I recently went back to school so that I can teach nursing. I have been questioning how I will be able to train nurses into the hellscape of a system the GOP is trying to create. Also, I am on Obamacare and I am relieved that I get to keep it at the moment but I know they are coming for it, now just from a different angle.
i got hurt at work a bit ago. Went to the hospital emergency room, got stitched up, checked out and had some followup. Cost me nothing because I'm Canadian. Dad had a quad bypass, didn't have to pay because he's Canadian. I hope my American friends one day benefit from a system like we have here
Yes, now is the time for Dems to propose OUR Obamacare fix, and show the Trump voters that we DO understand its shortcomings, and we DO have the solution: single payer. Let's keep pointing out that the GOP's main argument against it is that insurance companies will lose money.
While we work for single payer, we must ensure that Trump does not succeed in bringing about the collapse of Obamacare. For insurers to be profitable in this market, there has to be active outreach to bring in new customers. The Obama Administration -- including the president himself -- did exactly that. But Trump has yanked the ads that reached out to new customers, and there is more he can do, administratively, to create the explosion he so desperately wants. Let's get the word out and sign up as many new people as possible while we work for coverage for all.
This is true. Time for Republican and Democrats (the people), to stand up and demand that corporations get out of the health care industry.
Single payer healthcare is the 🔑 key and it's worth the fight. It's the affordable care that covers everyone that they keep talking about. The profiteers need to be pushed out of the health industry. The way to do that is with Medicare for all.
This bill didn't get passed because of the Freedom Caucus who thought it was too generous. This cannot be a lost fact. We benefit from this truth and we have to resist celebrating this as some kind of good over evil victory. It is not.
If this doesn't tell you the true nature of the ppl running the country- nothing ever will. Trump, Ryan and the rest of them need to go fuck themselves insead of fucking over the American people.
As a Canadian watching all this go down I am horrified that the elected leader of the US, the person whose job it is to represent and protect the people of his country, has stated your healthcare system will fail, people will suffer, and yet he lets his inflated ego and fear of failure stop him from doing anything to help the people he swore to serve! It is his job to stop a crisis, not sit back and watch it happen, not sit back and gloat while people suffer. Do Americans see and understand this, that their leader admitted he doesn't care What happens to them, does not intend to protect them from an explosion he predicts is coming? Disgusting.
I heard Michael last night and here's what he said: We have to be vigilant about the budget now, because even though the ACA is going to stand, Congress can cut the funding which Bob Costa, a respected journalist who just appeared on The Last Word, said, "it'll be like stepping on the oxygen tube." The ACA will die and the Republicans will then be able to blame it on the inherent problems within the healthcare act. So stay awake, everyone. This isn't over.
The public healthcare system here in France is remarkable, and even better when you supplement it with a private mutual insurance... which incidentally is also ridiculously affordable. I pay less than 80 euros a month for the highest level of supplementary private cover, which is so much cheaper than you'd pay in the states for the equivalent level of cover it's not even comparable. I've had spinal surgery with months of rehab, all in a top notch private clinic, barely a cent out of my own pocket which was all reimbursed later anyway. Nobody here fears going to a doctor in case something serious comes up which might drive them bankrupt, it's the opposite... Given how much conservative Americans like to poke fun at France (white flag raising surrender monkeys, etc etc)... maybe all that's needed is a reminder that there's something France does WAY better than them. People should dare them to outdo France, that might irritate them enough to do something about it!
Single Payer solves all the problems the RIGHT has been bitching about. But since it doesn't make any money for their benefactors, I don't see this going anywhere until LONG after the 2018 election, and 45, if he's still in office, will just VETO anything the Dems come up with. Patron saint of rich people.
He is absolutely right about going after the insurance companies who have been controlling and manipulating our lives and healthcare to line their own pockets. We need to get behind real universal health care for all.
I'm 57, my Husband is 60. Last year without any warning my Husband was rushed to the hospital by ambulance with chest pains. Turned out he needed an emergency triple bypass. His arteries were blocked 90, 99 and 95%. We found that out when they got him in the same day for an angiogram. He was kept in hospital for 4 days while they stabilized him and kept him on blood thinners. He had his surgery on a Friday. Afterwards, he was in the surgical ICU with a one on one nurse for 2 days. They were wonderful and made a very stressful and scary situation slightly easier! He came home the following Wednesday with strict instructions and a plan to attend heart rehab for 6 months. Do you know what all this cost? ZERO, I'm Canadian! Now, our system isn't perfect, It's not, but is yours? You may have to wait for elective surgery, and you have to pay a little more in taxes for this, but it's so worth it. We all pay a little each year, so everyone is covered. That means that my taxes are going to help others, but I call that being a decent human being, and just the right thing to do. This "every man for himself" attitude I see in the US, is not going to help anyone, including yourselves!
Since Trump claims to want to cover everyone, and wants to do away with the mandate (but still keep the rest-youth to 26 on the plan, pre-existing conditions, etc.)...why the hell not do something BOLD? Why not reach across the aisle and bring on the single-payer or government option or whatever it takes to improve this bill. It's what the people want! BE BRAVE. He'd get most Dems on board, smart Republicans, too...and BURY the tea-baggers. How cool would that be?
The ACA was only the beginning, and it is now time to expand it, improve it and convert it into Medicare for all.
There is NO sustainable and affordable replacement for the ACA except Medicare for all i.e. Universal Health Care. Putting a cap on ALL provider costs including medicine and salaries for payer companies would be an alternative, but what do think the chance is for that happening. And, of course premiums will increase under the ACA. Costs go up and premiums go up. Insurance companies aren't charities.
Agreed! I didn't see this yet but I woke up thinking why don't the people push for the better system? Take the insurance company out of the equation as well as the 2%. Let's draft our own bill!!!!!! Let's push for single-payer....
the frustrating thing is our politicians won't even address the elephant in the room which is that the insurance companies and drug companies control the inflated prices and our funding their campaigns. They keep trying to dissuade people into blaming Obama and saying that Obama care is collapsing. I think/hope the Trump voters are finally seeing that they were conned. Obamacare expanded Medicaid and now we need to expand it further into universal coverage. I think even Trump voters would be on board with Medicare for all. We just have to all stand up and fight for it!
Make all states take the federal funded expanded medicare to fill in the gaps in Obamacare. Once the Dems are back in power go all out for single payer health care like Canada has.
Hello America! “Single-Payer”? -- What does a single-payer system mean for America? Every person deserves good health, even if they can’t afford the high cost of health care services; health care should be a human right, especially here in the United States, one of the richest nations in the world. According to a study conducted in 1991 by the General Accounting Office, national health insurance (a single-payer plan) would save the United States more than 10% of all health care costs annually by reducing paperwork, and this saved money alone would adequately cover the uninsured and provide better long-term care, home care, and medication coverage for the entire population (McDermott, 1994). Under a single-payer system all Americans would receive comprehensive medical benefits, and like Canada and Denmark, coverage would include all medically necessary services. However, proposals for a single-payer system in the U.S. extend coverage to rehabilitative, long-term and home-care services, mental health care, prescription drugs, medical supplies, and preventive public health measures (Physicians for a National Health Program). Thus care would be based on need and not on ability to pay. Legislation in Congress based on the Canadian approach had 120 sponsors in 1994, more than any other health care proposal, and although similar bills have failed, single-payer resolution seems to have support (Physicians for a National Health Program).
A country that claims to be the best and the greatest, can't give their people healthcare? I find this ridiculously shocking, Look around Americans, at all the countries in the real world that give their citizens this and much more. You live under a great deception of your greatness.

I think we also need to look at the pharmacudic companies. I'm watching a commercial on being blind. Really? If you're blind, don't you have a doctor that knows if this medicine will help you. They spend all this money on advertising. They are out of control.
I had a great name for the proposed health care bill. I thought it should be named after Ryan and Trump and should be called Tryan Health Care....like TRY and GET some!!
What they should be doing , asap..... Republicans and Democrats should be getting together and coming up with some "fixes" for Obamacare that will cut costs for their citizens and still provide top care..for all.. .. Trump, self proclaimed, MASTER Negotiator, should be talking deals with insurance,medical and pharma companies .. and all the other health services and price gouging companies that rob everyone blind for necessary services needed for your very survival..
The grassroot movement is working! The town halls are working! Next must get an independent investigation going and those tax returns released! The Donald Trump Ultimatum today meant nothing to his fellow republicans today! A victory for the people!
Michael Moore ... I have total respect for you but please refrain from using the phrase "trust me" or "believe me" as they now indicate the telling of a lie. See all of trumpism's use of those phrases.
Can you tell them that Joe and Mika are partly responsible for getting Trump elected by cozying up to him for 2 years while obsessing covering Hillary's emails?
Good job, Michael. As usual. Yes, let's beware of Republicans sabotaging the ACA for their "We told you so" moment. They are more than capable of it.
I'll be waiting. Don't let him keep cutting you off like Chris Matthews does.
Seen ya Michael! I so appreciate your knowledge and your determination! God bless you! Trump just showed today how well he makes deals! Also, Andrea Mitchell reported how his associates is purging their phones! He is learning "You can fool some of the people, some of the time." "But, you can't fool all of the people, all of the time!" Those that believed this "GRIFTER" are seeing who he is! Lets all pray intelligence get him GONE SOON!
I notice a lot of news articles and facebook postings and comments that amount to gloating that Trumpcare, or whatever it is called, was withdrawn because Paul Ryan determined it would not pass if held for vote. Although I wish Ryan had allowed a vote so the bill could flat out fail, understand the reason it was going to fail was not because a number of Republicans in the House felt that Obamacare was better for the American public, but contrarily, because a sizable contingent of ultra-far right Republican Representatives did not like that Trumpcare, as does Obamacare, prohibits healthcare insurance companies from refusing to insure those with pre-existing conditions. Furthermore, they did not think that Trumpcare went far enough in cutting Medicaid to sick, poor people. They did not like that parents could keep their kids on their insurance plan to the age of 26 and they especially did not like that plans still had to cover conditions unique to women's healthcare. In other words, they did not object to the fact that millions would have lost access to the healthcare system under Trumpcare, nor did they object to the huge tax cuts afforded super rich Americans in the bill, but rather it failed because they objected that it was not draconian enough. Let that sink in and temper your enthusiasm before you gloat too much, because the defeat of this bill does nothing to curb the enthusiasm of the Republican dominated Congress to wreak havoc on struggling Americans.
The failure to repeal and replace Obamacare would be a stinging defeat for Trump. But it would be an even bigger defeat for Paul Ryan, who has all but staked his Speakership on passing this bill. And in the hall of mirrors that is Washington, the big winner to emerge out of the health-care debacle could be Steve Bannon. That’s because Bannon has been waging war against Ryan for years. For Bannon, Ryan is the embodiment of the “globalist-corporatist” Republican elite. A failed bill would be Bannon’s best chance yet to topple Ryan and advance his nationalist-populist economic agenda.
John Shaw, why is it that conservatives have so much trouble making a point without name-calling? If you have an argument, make it. Just railing at somebody you disagree with doesn't accomplish anything. Also, there's this thing call "spellcheck...."
My physician father and eldest brother were among the heroes who defeated Hitler and Nazism. See if you can access this video. It shows why Trump believes he is of superior German Blood. That probably makes everyone else, not of that same heritage, his inferior and in his warped mind, unworthy of being alive. He can tolerate and even marry a Russian (Correction - Slovenian) that he considers to be of the white race. m.huffpost.com/us/entry/us_57ec4cc2e4b024a52d2cc7f9
Trump will start throwing people under the bus! First casualty Michael Flynn. Big cover story on next Trump newspaper....National Enquirer. Watch for it in your supermarket check out line. It is beginning.
And talking about how great President Trump is and work together and he is on top today!! Good for Trump!! A man with a conscience!! I love my President!! #44 shady shady!! Dems getting nervous!!! Shit is going down!!
We, the people, need to organize and demand that the United States of America join the rest of the industrialized world in garanteing healthcare to all of our people as a right of citizenship. Despite the Affordable Care Act millions of Americans still have no health insurance and millions more are under insured with high deductibles and high copayments.
I watched your documentary "Where to Invade Next" today and then caught your appearance on Chris Hayes tonight. You've actually given me some optimism so thanks. However there is a ton of work to do.
Mike - you didn't get a chance to tell us what we need to do now to put pressure on the insurance companies to keep them from pulling out of states and to bring a state Medicare single payor system. Let us know!!
What can we do specifically to fight insurance companies who want Obamacare to collapse while we're stuck with Republican controlled congress who also want it to fail? You mentioned going after insurance but I'm not sure what actual actions to take...
Why do we KNOW that DAPL is Ecocide? THIS: Note Well: If this pipeline leak was the Dakota Access Pipeline, it would be 570 times as bad! OR 302 million gallons/7.2 million barrels. DAPL carries 570+ times the oil of this pipeline. This article also refers to a spill out in the Bakken region near Tioga, ND. Still not cleaned up & costing more than $60 million!!! Also Note: the original spill report was erroneously set at less than half the revised figure. Who polices the reporting of the spills. Also Note: the benzene compounds do not "appear" to have reached the river... confident enough for the drinking water supplies of #StandingRock #CheyenneRiver & 18 million other people downstream? Not to mention ecosystems? Farming? #waterislife #allpipelinesleak #NoDAPL www.cnbc.com/2017/03/24/north-dakota-oil-spill-3-times-larger-than-first-estimated.html
Fake news media.....Moore your films sux and I have not even seen one.. you are a biased , racist, hater POS...Try doing something for the American people?? What have you done besides twist stories and tell lies...
I'm not happy. It would have been better had their bill passed because that would mean they owned it from now until 2018. What's going to happen now is the republicans will strangle Obamacare so that the Dems will get the blame come the next election.
The Irish Prime Minister has a few words to say about immigrants, right to Trump's face:
Channel 4 News
“The Irish believed in the compassion and opportunity of America.”
Ireland’s Prime Minister Enda Kenny tells Donald J. Trump that for over 200 years, millions of Irish immigrants have called America home. ... See MoreSee Less

What kind of particular stupid are these Trump followers?! And still they believe and follow #bless The world is sitting back with a large bag of popcorn waiting for the grand finale of this embarrassing circus. Trump supporters,, lets see how this works out for you...we don't predict a happy ending.
I don't think Trump has a problem with immigrants, just illegal ones. His wife is an immigrant. Why do people think Trump thinks like this?
Dumb ass trump standing there looking like a complete n total idiot!! Lol
Trump's facial expression clearly shows he's not listening. He might hear the sounds of the Irish PM's vice, but he's not paying any attention because he's too ignorant, arrogant and selfish. Donald Trump is a cross section of the majority of today's society. No one gives a shit.
Trump is ruining our Country, and bringing shame to it by his tyrannical deeds., not caring about the poor, taking away health care stopping meals on wheels for the elderly cutting funds for EPA, our drinking water is in jeopardy,Trumps only concern is building the defense,and getting more money for himself and his wealthy cronies, and the heck with the Americans and America.
Irish here...living in Ireland so I know what I'm talking about....don't be fooled by this little shit...most of the country hate him. He has turned his back on the homeless and sick in this country. And he is going to step down as "our dear leader" soon...he just wanted his free trip to America first...on taxpayers money...so he lick Trump's arse. He's angling for a cushy job in Europe when we get rid of him! He doesn't give a shit about anyone...let alone immigrants!
sorry Michael Moore but even a broken clock is right twice a day, his speech writer wrote that he hasn't the brains to come up with that he has sold us out to the bankers and Europe so anything he has to say is a joke, look at the state of our country he is about to step down while 2 huge scandals are ongoing including the discovery of a mass grave with 900+ children's bodies, this man is a joke.
Trump supporters: you voted for him because he said he would help you.....the poor, the elderly, the disenfranchised. He has proposed ending meals on wheels. Does this help you? Your parents? Your grandparents? He has proposed ending free meals at schools for poor children. Does this help you? Your children? He wants to stop after school programs. Does this help you? Your children? He has allowed toxins to be dumped into clean water? Does this help you? Your family? He has proposed stopping assistance for heating bills. Does this help you? Your family?He has proposed ending job training programs. Does this help you? Your family? He wants to end the program to help home buyers purchase their homes. Does this help you? Your family? The changes he has proposed for health care will knock millions off the health care insurance. Does this help you? Your children? Your family? The premiums on health care will increase dramatically for millions...especially the elderly and the poor. Does this help you? Your parents? Your children? He wants to end head start? Does this help you? Your children......you have been LIED to!!! He will continue to lie to you! You are being SCREWED! DO YOU GET IT?! @Janet Rohrer
Please do not put Enda Kenny on a pedestal in the area of immigration. Ireland must practice what they preach. Mr Kenny is responsible for the inhumane treatment of refugees in Ireland at this moment and I say this as an Irish citizen!
Yes we Irish don't cower, we'll find a way to give. Tongue lashing and you won't be sure if we've insulted you or not but we've put you in your place!!!! We've been through too much not to!!!
I must admit, I didn't pay much attention to other world leaders when they visited the U.S. in the past. I guess I didn't have to & now I am drawn to them (Trudeau in Canada is my favorite 😍) like moths to a bright light. I think I am longing for decency, diplomacy, intellectualism & appreciate it in other leaders since we clearly don't have any of that now. I particularly like it when they use their coherent & articulate words to point out the hypocrisy & darkness of this administration. Nice job Prime Minister Kenny 👏...
Michael Moore you flipping moron!! If you think Radical Islamic Jihadist are in the same group as hard working immigrants that want to assimilate into the host country then you are sadly mistaking! Open your flipping eyes and look at what is happening around the countries that have accepted these Jihadist!
Everybody is an immigrant to the US! Immogrants are not bad people. They go through a lot of pain to leave their country and settle in the new country. They have to make a big adjustment. Can you imagine moving to Japan and settling there and learn their language and culture? I migrated to the US in the 70s. I got my Bachelors and Masters degrees in the US. I worked as a professional educator in the public school system of Texas for 24 years and before that as a marketing director at a local medical school. I helped the citizens of Texas!!! Other immigrants can do the same if given a chance to come here.
Enda kenny is a little wessle of a man that has overseen the largest homeless crises in the history of the state and let his ministers ruin the health service. He has done nothing for the refugees living in direct provision here in ireland that live in appalling conditions , he is hated here, we can't get rid of the little prick
Glad someone had the guts to say something to his face. Unfortunately, our 'president' is too f*%^ing stupid and self-centered to realize the Prime Minister was making a statement against him.
Absolutely brilliant. Bravo! Very simple truths have a walloping impact. I guess Trump will now refuse to shake the hand of Irish PM's, just as he purposely snubbed Angela Merkel's handshake for the cameras recently. The extent of Trump's narcissism is truly gobsmacking. The lack of the man's intelligence is astounding.
Wow, Michael Moore if I want to get an insight into how feeble minded, hate mongering, knuckle dragging, Republican voting troglodytes think, I can just scan the comments on your FB posts. Those losers troll the shit out of you. Maybe if they took spare handgun #7 out of the toilet cistern and got their TVs out of hock they could get back to watching some #FakeNews on Bill O'Reilly instead?
The Irish PM just told the story of my family. Too bad the rest of my family has forgotten about it. Happy St. Patrick's Day 🇺🇸☘️🇮🇪.
You mean the Taoiseach? It's not the Prime Minister. And Patrick was a slave, not an immigrant. If you plan on using our culture to make political points, please look educated when doing so or choose sources that raise the standard of education on Irish culture, not lower it. #notfortrumpforaccuracy #stein2020
The Irish came here and worked any shit job the Americans didn't want. They worked on the railroads, shoveled coal and swept the streets. They didn't ask for welfare or any other hand-out. They became citizens and embraced our culture and values and have always displayed the American flag. And above all else they emigrated legally! Other cultures need to follow their lead!
Don't be fooled by Enda kenny he's no better than Donald trump he is a politician and Like all politicians he is in it for himself he knew well this speech would make him look good to the world but to the Irish he's just a greedy pig that cares about himself and what Europe thinks!! Doesn't give a bollox about the Irish people and especially the homeless!! A PIG WITH FINGERS!!!
Enda Kenny is twenty times worse a liar,corrupt and just in general a bastard than Donald Trump will ever be,don't use this piece of shit to make a point...By the way,Saint Patrick wasn't an immigrant,he was kidnapped but as usual Enda the dick changes history to suit himself,this man is a crook, do not,DO NOT!!!! praise him, he is letting Irish people die on the streets and foreign vulture funds put families into destitution, the whole country is trying to get rid of him as he is our unelected leader,he refuses to leave....The fact you would use this man as a poster boy is boiling my blood and proves how out of fucking touch you really are and I'm a fan.
Jack Hodge - you ask a legitimate question and you don't deserve abuse for asking it. The laws can define what is legal or illegal but let's be compassionate and legally allow immigrants. Looking for a better life - whether fleeing from death or seeking higher education or offering genius-level technical, scientific research and development to improve all our lives.
I just wonder how long those with common sense and knowing will put up with this man. It's time that those with huge egos that don't ever want to admit that they are or were wrong will give up the fight and just do something to impeach this poor excuse for a president. For goodness sake save your country. He is a liar - always has been. For what reason do you want to believe him? Here comes ego again. I don't care what party you belong to - do the right thing before it's too late!!!!
Michael Moore been a follower of your page for a while now, marched in Dublin in solidarity with the #WomensMarch last January not only in opposition to Trump but to Mr Kenny, we too marched just like those in the US for our reproductive rights...so no as an Irish citizen I can't get excited by Mr Kennys words because I know them to be populist, orchestrated and disingenuous.
24hrs later & the "news" network that attacks laws that help & protect women, the channel that harasses women leaders, is still on the air!
Tonight, the Tribeca Film Festival will present a special screening of Bowling for Columbine on the 18th anniversary of the tragedy.
Said the NBC-Universal TV star who is a member of the Screen Actors Guild.
Dems failed in Kansas and are now failing in Georgia. Great job Karen Handel! It is now Hollywood vs. Georgia on June 20th.
Bill O'Reilly. Bill Cosby. Billy Bush.
I'M THE ONLY GOOD BILLY ON TV!!!!!
#MichaelMoore predicts Trump won't be impeached until some time in second term: I disagree I think self preservation will drive GOP to act
