Podcast Series Rumble with Michael Moore

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...

Ep. 282: Weapons of Mass Balloonery

The last thing you expect to hear on a quiet Sunday afternoon in your Northern Michigan apartment two blocks off Lake Michigan, in the middle of winter, is the sonic BOOM of a fighter jet breaking the sound barrier. But that's exactly what Michael Moore’s neighborhood heard yesterday afternoon, February 12, 2023. Why? Because the U.S. Air Force was on its way to shooting down the 3rd UFO of THIS WEEKEND — this time over Lake Huron. All this and after that Chinese spy balloon last weekend. WTF is going on? It's time to ask some uncomfortable questions...

Ep. 281: The Execution of Tyre Nichols: Another Cover-Up From The Lying Machine

A little over a week ago, Michael watched, along with millions of Americans, 5 Memphis police officers brutally execute 29-year-old photographer and father, Tyre Nichols — a 2nd-shift Fed-Ex employee en route home on his dinner break to sit at his mother’s table for some of her home-cooked sesame chicken — and felt… Numb. A week later, he finally realized why. Under the guise of transparency, we are being lied to — including by Memphis police chief Cerelyn Davis. On this episode of Rumble, Michael Moore pulls the mask off and exposes the truth: there are no heroes here, they haven’t scratched the surface of accountability, this is merely damage control being sold as “justice.” Please listen, and share.
