Relaxing and soaking in their ocean of billions and billions of dollars, they never saw this day coming. Why would they? They privately refer to themselves as “The Owners.” They own the country. They own the politicians. They think they own you and me. In just this decade alone the Big 3 car companies made off with profits —
We are so fortunate that he is here for such a time as this. He’s the only one that funneled Federal money into flint to clean up the water problem. #BidenHarris2024
Thank you so much for this reporting, Michael! I feel so much more hope. You are the best!
Dear precious Michael, You are spot on, as usual. Joe Biden is a decent man and understands and "gets" us. It was my 4th year teaching in NJ when we went on strike. It is against the law in NJ and each one of us was served with a subpoena to appear in court and plead guilty. It was then that I became involved; first female president of the teachers association, chief negotiator for 8 yrs. of contracts, etc. It was then that I totally understood why people strike. Anyone striking has reached the absolute end of their rope. Thank you, Joe Biden!!!! Thank you, Michael!!!
I remember very well seeing your film “Roger and me” many years ago and thinking how amazing it was to see someone standing up to the powerful and feeling empowered myself to look at the world differently and be able to express the injustice that seemed to be the mainstream ethos. In an incremental way that enabled what we will witness today with the symbolism of President Biden walking the picket line in solidarity with the working class. Thank you Michael Moore!
I just this minute finished watching this commentary by Rachel Maddow.
I love this woman's mind, and I wish she were President.
These remarks are really scary. People who aren’t concerned about our democracy and don’t realize how the system works. We have two choices people …2. Stop wishing and thinking and discussing. It’s 2…if you want a democracy you vote for Biden. If you want a dictatorship vote for Trump. Very simple. If you vote for any idiot that thinks he could possibly win, that vote goes to Trump the wannabe dictator. Biden is old and yes he requires sleep, but Trump is only three years younger and thinks he ran against Obama and said if Biden wins we will start WWII. So there. If you think Biden hasn’t done a great job as President then you aren’t very smart. If you want to know how smart he is and proof that he knows what he’s doing read Thomas Friedman’s article about his meeting with Netanyahu in the NYT. That’s how he works, behind the scenes. He is not a sociopath criminal who demands attention. He hasn’t tried to overthrow our government. He cares about the American people and he is proving that again today. VOTE!
Michael, as a lifelong democratic voter - yet never more as the DNC is one of the most corrupt bodies in the U.S. You write so well of Biden's history on behalf of corporate America, but PLEASE don't praise him for standing with the auto workers it only enforces the legacy propaganda. But PLEASE DO INFORM us on TNI. The Trusted News Initiative started by the BBC - says those in our legacy media circle agree to CENSOR any who express opinions outside the status quo initiative. Too many of my progressive friends who listen to NPR, Democracy Now, PBS are full throated voters for Biden (how can that be?) when we have Bobby Jr. with a 30 year history of prosecuting corporations and certain corrupt agencies within U.S. government. Do people only listen to opinion, or willing to read HIS words and view the dozens of podcasts he has been on Left, Right, and Center. The media keeps lying about what he believes and does.
Way too little too late. I think he is doing it because of his poll numbers or because some handler told him he had to.
There's Trump for the extremely ignorant and "Trumpism" for the "criminally" insane.
Come on people. He can't even stay awake they've got him so pumped with drugs due to his alarmingly progressing dementia. Did you see the video of Biden in Vietnam last week? His last comment was, I'm paraphrasing: Time to go to bed now, I gotta go to sleep! What a bloody embarrasament. Trillions for Ukraine but $700 dollars each for those in Maui. ALL campaign promises broken. Cable nightly news is FUNDED 74% by big pharma. Try some facts with Bobby Jr. HIS WORDS, not legacy media OPINION.
Thank you Michael for this. We all need any inkling of hope to keep going, and hearing that our president is on the side of the working man gives me hope. Go Joe go!
Michel, I Think a certain Person you know has Taught President Biden a lot of Things he may or may not have realized was so important and you all so if willing learn from your mistakes of the past and obviously President Biden has and has recently seen enough ! He is doing very good Things inspite of Republicans and dosent get the credit he deserves however if his fellow Democrats are smart they will point out age is just a number and as you say and I agree a President for The American people is what is always needed I’m glad as hell he is joining those brave hard working UAW Workers ❤️
Oh, Michael. I do so love you. Your wit. Your candor. Your movies. Your baseball cap.
But this article? I'm the first to agree with all you've said about the 1%, the 40% and the 60%. And the fact that the time for the UAW to win this is long overdue. But Joe Biden walking the picket line? While this makes both you and me happy to see, does this make Joe any less beholden to the 1%? Don't get me wrong. I think he's done a lot of good so far while President. And maybe as Vice President. Certainly more for the people than the repugnicants. But the rest of the workers are still at $7.25 an hour. They need more. And don't let me start on my question about why our schools aren't teaching their students how to become rich [all of them can, you know].
Still, I'd rather have Joe Biden asleep in the White House, than have Trump anywhere near it.
Biden is only doing this for votes. Get ready for him to start making hefty promises with the next election around the corner. DONT LET THE DNC STEAL THIS ELECTION FROM KENNEDY LIKE THEY DID BERNIE. RFK 2024
I appreciate President Biden doing this and I hope it signals to the elite Democrats, yes those among the men and women you mentioned Mike who couldnt pass RvW, who couldn’t raise the minimum wage, who havent fought hard enough to overturn Citizens United, who havent quite done enough for their fellow country people to lessen the percentage of us who work pay check to paycheck. I am one of the latter. Yet I have a graduate degree (psychology) which was required to qualify for my job (healthcare chaplain in hospice) yet my wage is just enough for me to rent a one bedroom apartment pay the utilities, buy groceries and keep my car running (which I need for work). There’s nothing left over to save. There never appears that there will be a plateau, where maybe rents wont rise and eat my cost of living raise. But no. The Democrats MUST do better, they cannot just be “better than Trump” or these other Republican creeps. They have to be more than better. Ok Thanks Biden for joining the strike. How about also creating unions for jobs which dont have unions. Nurses have unions, janitors too, but the multitude of other jobs dont. We have no leverage. Dems, I hope they are listening.
It’s a cinch he’ll lose in 24’ he’s a coward who refuses to even debate the issues with the other candidates. That in itself reveals his lack of any kind of integrity, in fact he’s no better than old orange face, and sadly, because of Biden’s refusal to allow true democracy in the primary, the current oligarch controlled government wins either way.
