    Ep. 129: Supreme Nightmare -- When Abortion Wasn't Legal

    Ep. 129: Supreme Nightmare -- When Abortion Wasn't Legal

    With the Republicans prepared to take full control of the Supreme Court with a 6-3 majority if Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed, Roe V. Wade and the right to a legal abortion is in serious jeopardy. What would this horrific rollback of women's rights and reproductive rights do to American society and to the health of millions of American women?

    In this special episode, Michael shares a personal story from 1971, when a close friend of his had an unplanned pregnancy in their home state of Michigan, where abortion was illegal. He recounts their plan to drive to Buffalo, since New York was one of the first states to allow women to have this medical procedure legally. This true story originally appeared in Mike's autobiographical book of short stories, "Here Comes Trouble: Stories From My Life" and he shares it here on Rumble as a lesson for what may be coming back to America.

    Ep. 128: The Plot To Kill 'Planet of the Humans' (feat. Max Blumenthal)

    Ep. 128: The Plot To Kill 'Planet of the Humans' (feat. Max Blumenthal)

    Investigative journalist and best-selling author Max Blumenthal recently published an explosive 8,000-word investigation on the "green" billionaires, Wall Street investors, industry insiders and family foundations' coordinated suppression campaign against the film "Planet of the Humans." The film, Directed by Jeff Gibbs and Executive Produced by Michael Moore, has now reached over 12 million viewers on YouTube, but was the subject of a campaign that civil liberties group PEN America twice rebuked as "censorship." Blumenthal joins Michael to discuss why he turned his attention to this issue, what he learned about the billionaire financial backers and family foundations that underpin elements of the environmental movement, and how some environmental groups now serve to "greenwash" the reputations of large corporations that make cosmetic changes while still ruining the planet.

    Ep. 127: The Terrorists Next Door

    Ep. 127: The Terrorists Next Door

    Earlier this week, the government announced the arrest of 13 men from Michigan who plotted to kidnap and do harm to Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, a woman, a Democrat and a regular foil to Donald Trump. Among their grievances was Governor Whitmer's level-headed and prudent handling of the pandemic, which included mask-wearing and temporary shutdowns of businesses and schools. Michael Moore has been covering these "Michigan Militia" types for a long time, beginning with a 1979 radio interview of the Grand Dragon of the Michigan Ku Klux Klan and including a few on-camera interviews over the past few decades (see below). However, he's never seen them have an ally and leader in the White House. In this episode, Michael shares his thoughts on this new generation of homegrown, caucasian, Michigan terrorists and how the stakes have been raised when it comes to removing their leader from the White House in a few weeks.

    Additionally, Mike shares his thoughts on how Donald Trump is drowning, and what his Eagle Scout training taught him about how we should deal with him.


    Michael Moore's "TV Nation" spends the day with the Michigan Militia in 1995 shortly after the Oklahoma City bombing:

    In "Bowling For Columbine" (2002), Michael pays a visit to trained militia members in Michigan with an imaginative calendar:

    Ep. 126: A Pre-Existing Condition Called Trump (feat. Kristin Urquiza)

    Ep. 126: A Pre-Existing Condition Called Trump (feat. Kristin Urquiza)

    Kristin Urquiza's father Mark was one of the more than 200,000 Americans to die from COVID-19. He was a Trump supporter who was led to believe that he was safe from the virus because of President Trump, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey and Fox News downplaying the risks. Since his passing, Kristin has dedicated herself to keeping the memory of all COVID-19 victims alive, sharing accurate public information about the pandemic, and never letting anyone forget about the mismanagement and misinformation from Trump and his enablers that have led to all of these preventable deaths.

    Kristin was invited by the Biden family to be their guest at the 1st Presidential debate in Cleveland, and she joins Michael to discuss what it was like seeing her father's killer on stage 15 feet away from her, how she must now get tested because of Trump's reckless behavior and her non-profit organization's upcoming actions to remember those lost during this pandemic.

    Ep. 125: EMERGENCY PODCAST SYSTEM — Trump Has COVID-19, But...

    Donald Trump has a history of lying about his health (and about the health of his political opponents). So how should we handle his announcement that he and Melania have tested positive for COVID-19? Michael Moore shares his thoughts on this EMERGENCY PODCAST SYSTEM edition of Rumble.

cindy from mendo ,

Thanks Mike

I laughed and cried while you were reading it. I am a girl but I’ve had guy friends like that and I totally get it. Being such good friends that you don’t want to ruin that with a kiss.
I’ve had one and besides the outer turmoil, the inner is indescribable. Like you I don’t believe that human life is such until it can survive outside of me but the thought of having to make it stop before it gets the chance well I guess I can only say that the real story will be forever hidden in my tears.

Paul Ron ,
