I had no idea how much I needed you to do this. We now live in a country where the news cycle has been reduced to a fraction of a day by the ostentatious incompetence of those in positions of authority. We can't wait for production times associated with movies and TV shows to hear from you. Thank you for this lifeline -- an antidote to the insanity.

Ep. 21: Martin Luther King Jr.'s Democratic Socialist Dream
4329

Martin Luther King Jr.'s legacy has been sanitized by mainstream American society, erasing his fierce anti-capitalist and anti-war advocacy. Before he was assassinated, King was forcefully denouncing the "three evils" in America -- racism, militarism and a corrupt economic system -- and arguing that these three evils were all tied together. For this MLK Day episode, Michael Moore shares audio clips and quotes from King that will not be celebrated on the evening news.

Ep. 20: The Half Baked Politics of Half Measures (feat. Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor)
4804

The failures of liberal half measures, compromise and "third way" politics has opened the door for right-wing demagogues to take power. It has also re-awakened a militant and energized left to combat both the wackadoodle right and the tepid center. We're seeing this play out in American politics and the 2020 Democratic primary.

Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor is a scholar, author and activist. Her writing and speaking has incisively and ferociously exposed the failures of capitalism and the necessity of a fierce struggle to overcome it. She joins Michael to discuss how the hell we got here and how we liberate ourselves.

Ep. 19: The Sad Downfall of Elizabeth Warren
4088

Michael Moore shares his personal history with both Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, who both starred in 2009's "Capitalism: A Love Story." In very personal terms, he addresses the possible fracture within the progressive movement and why we must move past this in order to ensure the defeat of both Donald Trump and the rotten system that produced Trump.

Ep. 18: Assassins
2914

176 passengers on a Ukrainian passenger jet were all killed after it was shot down this weekend. The government of Iran admitted that they mistakenly shot it down, days after Donald Trump ordered the assassination a top Iranian leader who was in Iraq, setting off 72 hours of chaos and heightened tensions. If not for America's illegal and unjustified assassination, wouldn't these 176 passengers still be alive?

Michael discusses America's history in Iran, the stupidity of pro-war Democrats, and the balmy winter weather on the East Coast.

2432

Michael Moore lays out the case for how and why the Senate can convict and remove Donald Trump from office.

Hear Mike’s urgent call to action on this episode of Rumble.

Ep. 13: EMERGENCY PODCAST SYSTEM — Trump Assassinates Soleimani — “An Act of War”
1711

We are pre-empting today’s scheduled podcast due to Donald Trump ordering the assassination of the #2 leader of Iran last night. Michael lays out the truth behind this and why Trump did it. And what we need to about it. Recorded in the middle of the night, we decided the urgency of us needing to deal with Trump’s actions was important enough that we post this emergency podcast. There must be no delay before we act. Senate switchboard: 202-224-3121

Michael Moore reflects on the past year and the past decade and asks YOU to make DECLARATIONS for the year 2020.

Ep. 10: Reconsidering Ralph (feat. Ralph Nader)
3193

Michael Moore and Ralph Nader have a complicated relationship. So during his trip to D.C. to witness the impeachment of Donald Trump, Michael was surprised when he bumped into Ralph while visiting the office of Flint's representative in Congress. They ended up having their first real conversation in nearly 20 years. Ralph agreed to let Michael record it for this podcast.

Ep. 9: Please Let Me Rob You, I'm Woke (feat. Anand Giridharadas)
6577

While the majority of Americans live paycheck-to-paycheck and one emergency away from financial peril, a new study shows that the 500 richest people in the world gained a combined $1.2 trillion in wealth in 2019. In the U.S., the richest 0.1% now control a bigger share of the pie than at any time since the beginning of the Great Depression.

But what happens when the very people hoarding this wealth at the expense of democracy, the environment and an equitable society, re-brand themselves as the people who will fix society's problems? What happens when the arsonists pose as the firefighters?

Anand Giridharadas has been studying these questions and he joins Michael Moore to name names and discuss what to do about it.

Since the economic crash of 2008, polling has consistently showed that young Americans are embracing socialism more than capitalism. Media outlets like Jacobin and organizations like DSA have emerged and they are mobilizing and informing new generations of political thinkers.

In this episode of "RUMBLE with Michael Moore," Michael is joined by Alex Press, an editor and writer at Jacobin, a labor organizer and a DSA member.  She and Michael discuss the movement behind the Bernie Sanders campaign, health care, the Wizard of Oz, suicide, labor and more.

Ep. 7: A Very Rumble Christmas
766

Join Michael Moore for a RUMBLE Christmas sing-along! The lyrics are below and are slightly altered to match the times we live in.


Merry Christmas!


1. Rudy, the Red-Nosed Reindeer

Rudy, the red nosed lawyer

Had a very shiny nose

That’s cause of where he put it

Right up in, well, you know.

All of the other Trumpsters

Used to roll their eyes and sneer

As Rudy hung out in Ukraine

Hoping to deliver a smear.

Then one foggy winter’s day

Donald came to say

Rudy with your nose so bright

Won’t you tell more lies tonight

Then all the Trumpsters loved him

And they shouted out with glee —

“Rudy the red-nosed lawyer

You’ll go down in infamy!“


2. Nancy Pelosi Is Coming to Town

Oh, you better watch out

You better not cry

You better not pout

I’m telling you why

Nancy Pelosi is coming to town!

She’s making a list

Checking it twice

Gonna find out who’s working for ICE

Nancy Pelosi is coming to town.

She sees you when you’re sleeping

She knows when you’re awake

She knows what else is in that server —

And she knows you're on the take!

You better watch out

You better not try

To hold a fake trial

I’m telling you why —

Nancy will kick your ass!


3. Silent Night 

Silent Night!

Holy Night!

Fox is gone.

Murdoch’s left town.

Tucker and Hannity —

Nobody cares.

Fox and Friends

Are lost in Times Square

Sleep in heavenly peace!

Trump will be joining you soon!


4. White Christmas

I’m dreaming of a White Owner

Just like the owners we’ve known before

Where they fire Colin Kaepernick

For taking a knee

Cause he didn’t like cops shooting black kids in the snow.

I’m dreaming of a White Owner

With every Christmas card I write.

May Colin’s days be merry and bright —

And may all you owners take flight.


5. Jared the No-Man 

Jared the No-man

He brought peace to the Middle East!

He brought happiness to all the world

And he never even said a peep!

Jared the No-man

He fixed climate change!

With a wink and a nod and a twitch of his eye

The entire earth was saved!

But then one day his father-in-law called

And told him to stay away -

Ivanka would now run the world!

“Pack your bags, she’s mine today!”

Jared the No-man knew he had no choice that day —

So he waved goodbye,

Saying “don't you cry,

I’ll be fine in East LA.!”


6. Joy to the World 

Joy to the world!

The Trump is impeached!

And soon we’ll get Pence too!

What will Mitch McConnell do?!

What will Stephen Miller do?!

Run and hide then go to jail?

Run and hide then go to jail?

Run and hide then go to jail?

Run and hide, run and hide

Then go to jail!
