Episode 299: Rumble with Michael Moore
Donald J Trump is a very clever CON MAN and a violent psychopathic liar who is trying to con his way back into the white house with full support of crooked Republicans in congress.
Trump uses his con artist talents to get people to threaten the lives of judges, lawyers, witnesses and jurors, and he does not care one bit on what happens to the people who are doing his threatening for him once they get arrested.
His only goal is to become dictator of the United States which is why he orchestrated the violent insurrection on our country.
Trump DEFINITELY belongs in prison

the 121 Congress people should be considered traitors. Use the 14th amendment, section 3! Hoping each and every one of them will be voted out. So disgusting and they don't get called out LOUD enough. Scream it to the rooftops! Traitors.
My understanding is that first D. J. Trump needs to be convicted for the insurrection on Jan. 6th, and then—before the 14th Amendment, section 3 can even disqualify him—you need 2/3’s of the House vote. So before we all get excited, that’s only 212 Dem votes with another 78 needed to pass. So unfortunately for us, it’s not going to happen. McCarthy will shut down any Republican vote on the floor and demand his party support Trump. So don’t plan on that. We’ve got to get out the vote.
Listening to your podcasts is so so so helpful Michael. It's like zooming out from the mire to recalibrate back to the FACTS and have a nugget of hope again. I appreciate you so much.
Michael, first of all I do not mean to sound caddy. As a Black Woman I have to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for thoughtfully selecting a photo of Fani Willis that portrays her as the beautiful, intelligent and amazingly talented woman she is. Unfortunately, over the years I have seen some pretty unbecoming photos of Black Women. Especially the angry Black Woman photos (although, we do have stuff to be angry about).
So, her dad took her to the office and exposed her to the law at an early age. If he was a White dad, he’d be classified as an amazing father. Yes, there are lots of Black Men who are amazing dads, who expose their kids to many experiences. Mine was an amazing dad. He could not take me to work because he worked in a steel mill. However, on his days off he spent lots of time with us at the park, the zoo, at civil rights demonstrations. He put us in the car and took us on lots of interstate road trips to expose us to other places and also put us through college. I just needed to get that off my chest! Black People and all People of Color are Normal People. I know I may be preaching to the choir on this site 😀.
There is a really important thing. I would like to make a request of all our White allies who believe that everyone deserves equal rights and want to see an inclusive nation. Simply and bluntly stated, we need you more than ever! We need you to stand up and find White friends to bring on the journey along with you. Your White friends will listen to you before they listen to me or other people of color. Based on my experience, that is just a fact. Your getting involved will help make the defining difference as we move towards an inclusive and welcoming country. Your standing in the shadows perpetuates the current situation.
The problem is not Democrats. The problem has and always will be Republicans. They run the House and the Supreme Kangaroo 🦘 Court. A Democrat can be educated 🏫 and you can move them to new positions to help the country. That is impossible to do that with a Republican. Zombie 🧟♂️ kangaroos 🦘 can’t be taught.
Wonderful podcast, Mike, from a Canadian follower + supporter.
Written by Pete Seeger and sang poorly by me and Puff the Magic Dragic is totally a weed anthem.
Ms. Larson, It must not necessarily happen that way. There is a simpler, legal way to prevent Trump from appearing on the next ballot. The state official responsible for placing candidates' names onto the ballot can simply refuse to include Trump. That official would be the Secretary of State for any state in the U.S. That official can legitimately do it.
The ball would then be in Trump's court. He would have the option of challenging that secretary of State's action in state court.
Good morning Michael I promise that I would read at least half of all your columns but I do not have the time to listen or do not process as much listening or ??? but if you sent those of us who ask for the written version of what you say it sure would be great Yes I can go someplace and find it but that just does not happen
We need some Democrats to pick a GOP candidate in Iowa Caucus to take it from Trump.
Wow. Powerful stuff Michael. Thanks for the insights about Fani's background. Respect. She is putting her life on the line. Thanks again for all you do for real freedom in the USA.
Pearl habor is near Honolulu. Different island from what I see on Google maps. But WTF, indeed, and thanks for pointing it out Michael, troops could be mobilized. Does the governor have to request it? Can't see why the governor wouldn't! Every administration just seems to really mess it up with emergencies and communication. Shameful.
With regards to the comments about Maui: The suggestion of putting electrical cables underground from my understanding may be wrong with regard to any area of the earth that experiences earthquakes caused by volcanic or any other geologic activity (such as fracking). So many cables would be severed, even with redundancies in place, that it could take a very, very long time to replace those lines within underground conduits and over a broad area after the stretching and shearing by those forces. Even routine disruptions unrelated to earthquakes could require digging to restore service rather than overhead repair by crane crews. I am no expert. ("For godsakes, Jim, I'm a doctor, not an electrical engineer") but a months-long restoration from damage over a broad area would compromise too many critical services for too long.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NUyicbdB07o How Trump Got Rich: The Real Story. This video I watched last night...it is so incredible. Trump was nurtured from the crib to be a menace, a grandiose self-entitled monster/mobster. The video's audio at the beginning is not so great but persevere. Fascinating.
In writing about Trump’s speech from the Ellipse on January 6, 2021, to his supporters who then overran the Capitol, Baude and Paulsen said Trump delivered a “general and specific message” that the election was stolen, calling on the crowd to take immediate action to block the transfer of power before falling silent for hours as the insurrection progressed.
“Trump’s deliberate inaction renders his January 6 speech much more incriminating in hindsight, because it makes it even less plausible (if it was ever plausible) that the crowd’s reaction was all a big mistake or misunderstanding,” they write.
The law professors argued current and former officeholders who took part in supporting or planning the efforts to overturn the election for Trump should also be “stringently scrutinized” under the Constitution should they seek bids for future public office. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/legal-scholars-increasingly-raise-constitutional-argument-that-trump-should-be-barred-from-presidency/ar-AA1funuO?fbclid=IwAR0HyYu3wcV53mOhi1gkf-1ZRpth7zLZRJj_kJSuKztnCWD1m2FI6IhcBGw
