    "We Are So Damn Fortunate" -- The End of COVID Could Come If You and I Convinced Everyone We Know To Get Their Shot (with Dr. Eric Topol)

    "We Are So Damn Fortunate" -- The End of COVID Could Come If You and I Convinced Everyone We Know To Get Their Shot (with Dr. Eric Topol)

    A new report claims that U.S. and worldwide COVID deaths are actually much higher than the official numbers: over 900,000 deaths in the U.S. (as opposed to the official count of 574,000) and nearly 7 million worldwide (twice the official number of 3.24 million). This virus has ravaged the world and upended all of our lives. And we still can’t get the truth?

    However, as we live through an historically deadly pandemic, we are also living through one of the greatest scientific and medical breakthroughs in history. As Dr. Eric Topol tells Michael Moore, "we are so damn fortunate." In record time, we have developed multiple, extremely effective vaccines that are reaching millions of arms, that cause very limited side effects (and no side effects for the majority of people aside from a sore arm), and it's free. We have an unbelievable opportunity to crush the virus, severely limit the havoc it causes us all, and get back to living healthy lives. Without these amazing vaccines, we'd be staring down several more years of death and destruction. But thanks to these medical and scientific breakthroughs, we stand a fighting chance if we all continue to get vaccinated!

    Dr. Topol, who is the Executive Vice President of Scripps Research, one of the most important medical research institutions in the world, helps Michael put this all into perspective and clears up myths about the vaccine and about "herd immunity." Finally, some truth!

    And some true hope.

    How to Convince Joe Manchin to Do the Right Thing

    How to Convince Joe Manchin to Do the Right Thing

    Due to the 50-50 split in the United States Senate, the fate of all critical legislation and of the Biden Presidency itself, lays in the hands of West Virginia's conservative Democratic Senator Joe Manchin. And Senator Manchin has made it very clear that he intends to use this power for all it is worth. Fine! Good! In this episode of Rumble, Michael Moore encourages Senator Manchin to go ahead and use that power, but do so for the good of the people of West Virginia. Bring home the bacon! High-speed internet! More funding for research at West Virginia University! Help for those suffering from opioid addiction! Job training and jobs for former coal workers!

    Michael also shares his love and appreciation for the state and its people. West Virginia has a rich history militant union action. The state also happens to be very poor. There are so many good, helpful things that Senator Manchin can deliver to the state of West Virginia if he wants to use his power wisely. Hasn’t anyone from the White House called Manchin and simply said, “just tell us what you want— and it’s yours!”

    Call Senator Manchin's office and encourage him to give Biden the votes he needs - but do it in return for getting a bunch of good stuff for the people of West Virginia!

    Ep. 187: It’s Like Herding Americans! How To Defeat COVID This Year (w/ Laurie Garrett)

    Ep. 187: It’s Like Herding Americans! How To Defeat COVID This Year (w/ Laurie Garrett)

    Michael is joined by public health expert and Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Laurie Garrett to discuss the new reports that the United States of America will never reach herd immunity to the coronavirus. President Biden seemed somewhat defeated when he had to announce recently that we will have to settle for 70% getting just one shot by the 4th of July. They discuss how each of us are the most important ambassadors for total vaccination success. If 200,000 Average American citizens who are listening to this podcast each convince 10 people to get their shots — BOOM! Yes, there is a small portion of the American public who will simply refuse to get the vaccine and whom we cannot reach. However, most of the people avoiding vaccination have fears and skepticism — and each of us can help convince them with our support, encouragement, kindness and love. President Biden — don’t give up on us. We’ll get millions of those sleeves rolled up by summer!

    Ep. 186: Biden Our Time

    Ep. 186: Biden Our Time

    Joe Biden is an unlikely savior. Nothing in his past indicated there was a second coming of FDR on its way. However... WTF is going on?! Elected President at a time of transformational change in America, he has chosen to read the political winds — and those winds have shifted left. The progressive worldview is in ascendance, and the demand by the American public for a big, active government that serves the needs of the American people is what the majority wants. Contrary to what he's done throughout his political career, Joe Biden is not punching left, but riding the progressive wave. And it is looking really, really good.

    While it's too soon to paint a full picture of the Biden presidency and whether this political change will last, Michael Moore shares candid thoughts about being shocked by how Biden has governed, asks leftists to understand and acknowledge political victories that are occurring, and also notes that there will be serious political battles ahead. He also shares a story of the first time he met Senator Biden in 2004, and makes an open, public plea to the President to keep delivering for the people, keep following his conscience, and keep telling Republicans and Larry Summers to fuck off.

    Ep. 184: EMERGENCY PODCAST SYSTEM — Guilty! Guilty! Guilty!

    Ep. 184: EMERGENCY PODCAST SYSTEM — Guilty! Guilty! Guilty!

    It took only 10 hours of deliberations for a Minneapolis jury to find former police office Derek Chauvin guilty of second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter of George Floyd. The decision was swift, overwhelming, obvious, and yet, somehow, shocking. Maybe it should not have been such a shock that jurors in the political district that elected Rep. Ilhan Omar to Congress (twice) made the right decision.

    However, as Michael Moore explains in this EMERGENCY PODCAST SYSTEM episode of Rumble, it is not normal for these cases to go the right way. He shares his feeling of total shock, plus his warning to white Americans and police officers who do not want to see America change into a more diverse, just, and equitable society. He also explains how this one act of accountability is not the massive, revolutionary change we need to address white supremacy, criminal justice reform, and anti-Black racism. Finally, he pays tribute to Darnella Frazier, the courageous teenager who filmed the the Chauvin murder with a steady hand and a lot of gumption.

Solidarity from Denmark

Don’t give up!! You can still vote for Bernie in the primaries to come and get him delegates. He is focusing on the corona crisis. We need to carry his vision and compassion and legacy forward. Remind your friends to vote, write op eds to your local newspapers, phone bank for down ballot progressives and use that call to also remind people to vote for Bernie in the primary. The fight continues. The whole world is rooting for you.
