Ep. 40: EMERGENCY PODCAST SYSTEM — Russian Bot Bros
Senator Bernie Sanders issued a forceful statement on Friday against Russian attempts to meddle in the 2020 election, as he has done in the past. This came in response to a Washington Post story that Sanders was recently briefed by U.S. intelligence officials that Russia was meddling in the election and attempting to "help" his campaign in an unspecified way. This comes on the heels of the Sanders' opponents and the media dredging up the "Bernie Bro" canard from 2016 and attempting to portray online Sanders supporters as uniquely vile. In this EMERGENCY PODCAST SYSTEM edition of RUMBLE, Michael Moore makes the connection between these two stories and explains the urgency of setting this story straight. Sanders opponents who falsely accused Sanders supporters of "death threats" and ugly online behavior appear to have been duped by a Russian disinformation campaign. ********************** Washington Post story on the briefing Senator Sanders received: https://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/bernie-sanders-briefed-by-us-officials-that-russia-is-trying-to-help-his-presidential-campaign/2020/02/21/5ad396a6-54bd-11ea-929a-64efa7482a77_story.html

Ep. 39: Bloomberg And His Own "Kids In Cages"
Michael Bloomberg’s commandeering of the 2020 Democratic party nomination campaign is a dangerous moment for the party and the country. If Democrats give in, it will have horrific consequences. Michael Moore lays out the truth of Bloomberg's record and how support for Bloomberg is an endorsement of the Trumpian values we claim to have been resisting. ****************** The Trumpian Liberalism of Michael Bloomberg By Jamelle Bouie https://www.nytimes.com/2020/02/18/opinion/michael-bloomberg-stop-and-frisk.html Michael Bloomberg Puts Democrats in Moral Peril By Osita Nwanevu https://newrepublic.com/article/156596/michael-bloomberg-puts-democrats-moral-peril Michael Bloomberg’s Polite Authoritarianism He never hid his callous indifference to civil liberties; too many people just didn't care.

Ep. 38: There’s More Of Us Than There Are Of Them (feat. Rachel Bitecofer)
Why do so many Democrats keep making the mistake of running to the so-called "middle" or apologizing for being Democrats every election cycle? And why do Republicans -  an unpopular political party that enacts awful and discredited policies, continue to win and hold onto power? Michael is joined by a political scientist who has studied the fallacy of focusing on "swing voters" and how, instead, the number one goal of Democrats should be turning out non-voters, occasional voters and their base. Rachel Bitecofer is a political scientist and professor at Christopher Newport University in Newport News, Virginia and a Senior Fellow at the Niskanen Center. Her election model accurately predicted the outcome of the Democratic blue wave in the 2018 House elections and she shares her thoughts on 2020, what the Democrats keep getting wrong, and how accidentally getting hit in the head by a pack of Ramen Noodles by Michael Moore in 2004 turned her life around. *********************** Follow Rachel on Twitter here: https://twitter.com/RachelBitecofer Rachel's 2020 election model: http://cnu.edu/wasoncenter/2019/07/01-2020-election-forecast/ New Politico profile of Rachel Bitecofer: https://www.politico.com/news/magazine/2020/02/06/rachel-bitecofer-profile-election-forecasting-new-theory-108944 To watch the film on the "Slacker Uprising" tour that Rachel & Michael discussed, go here: https://youtu.be/Axk_8DV2GXM

Ep. 21: Martin Luther King Jr.'s Democratic Socialist Dream
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)
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. ********** "Five Years Later, Do Black Lives Matter?" https://jacobinmag.com/2019/09/black-lives-matter-laquan-mcdonald-mike-brown-eric-garner "How Real Estate Segregated America" https://www.dissentmagazine.org/article/how-real-estate-segregated-america-fair-housing-act-race Read about and order Keeanga's books here: http://www.keeangataylor.com/books.html Follow Keeanga on Twitter here: https://twitter.com/KeeangaYamahtta ******************** Subscribe to “RUMBLE with Michael Moore” on: Apple apple.co/rumble Spotify https://open.spotify.com/show/5KubucWBfyJr14bD7xWBvS Google: https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cHM6Ly9hbmNob3IuZm0vcy8xMGZjOWEzMC9wb2RjYXN0L3Jzcw== Stitcher: https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/michael-moore-4/rumble-with-michael-moore Anchor: https://anchor.fm/rumble-with-michael-moore Follow Michael on: Twitter: https://twitter.com/MMFlint Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/mmflint/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/michaelfmoore/ ********************

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

Ep. 9: Please Let Me Rob You, I'm Woke (feat. Anand Giridharadas)
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.  Rumble Reads: Anand's book, "Winners Take All" is here: https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/539747/winners-take-all-by-anand-giridharadas/9780451493248 Follow Anand here: https://twitter.com/AnandWrites The Jamie Dimon "60 Minutes" episode that Michael and Anand ridicule is here: https://www.cbsnews.com/video/jamie-dimon-jp-morgan-chase-ceo-the-60-minutes-interview-2019-11-10/ The new survey about the wealthiest people in the world is here : https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-12-27/world-s-richest-gain-1-2-trillion-as-kylie-baby-sharks-prosper

Ep. 7: A Very Rumble Christmas
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!
