Michael Moore describes an epiphany he had after witnessing throngs of New Yorkers cheering out their quarantined windows in tribute to all of the workers and medical professionals dealing with keeping the rest of us alive during the Covid-19 pandemic. Amidst the uncertainty how this will all end up, there are slivers of hope — and reasons to be optimistic about humanity and what we can accomplish after ridding ourselves of this (and, ahem, other) viruses. ********* Here is the video Michael mentioned: NYC FRONT LINES DOCTOR EXPLAINS HOW EASY IT IS TO NOT GET INFECTED AND STOP THE SPREAD OF COVID-19 https://youtu.be/WxyH1rkuLaw Music Credit: Armies of Your Heart - Elizaveta https://music.apple.com/us/album/armies-of-your-heart/1446020638?i=1446020777 --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/rumble-with-michael-moore/message
The U.S. Senate is on the brink of passing a massive corporate giveaway that will be yet another transfer of wealth from the American people to the wealthy. It was described by HuffPost's Zach Carter like this: "It is not an economic rescue package, but a sentence of unprecedented economic inequality and corporate control over our politics that will resonate for a generation. It represents a transfer of wealth and power to the super rich from the rest of us, with the support of both political parties ― a damning statement about the condition of American democracy."

One of the great studies on the history of pandemics is John M. Barry's 2004 book "The Great Influenza: The Story of the Deadliest Pandemic in History," a study of the 1918 flu pandemic. In addition to being a journalist and author, Barry is also a Professor at Tulane University's School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine. Prior to becoming a writer, Barry coached football at the high school and college levels. Using his expertise in both pandemics and football, Barry joins Michael to put the coronavirus pandemic in historical context and to share his game plan of discipline, teamwork, and doing our jumping jacks the right way. *************** SPECIAL OFFER FOR RUMBLE LISTENERS: Get a one-month free trial of Audible!

The coronavirus pandemic and all of the economic and social crises that it has exposed has politicians of all stripes calling for massive government intervention. And, funny enough, no pundit or politician is whining about how “WE CAN’T AFFORD THIS!” But just as in 2008, corporations and lobbyists are salivating at the opportunity to milk this crisis for as much government money as they can get their hands on. This is why we MUST use this moment to massively reshape our economic and healthcare systems and immediately get money in the hands of all Americans. Michael discusses what action must be taken with economist and professor Stephanie Kelton, former economist with the Senate Budget Committee and author of the forthcoming book, "The Deficit Myth: Modern Monetary Theory and the Birth of the People's Economy." ************* Call your U.S. Senators: 202-225-3121 Call your U.S. Rep: 202-224-3121 ************* FDR's 2nd Bill of Rights scene from "Capitalism: A Love Story": https://vimeo.com/32647556 Stephanie's op-ed in NYT: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/21/opinion/-coronavirus-stimulus-trillion.html Pre-order Stephanie's book "The Deficit Myth": https://bookshop.org/a/1381/9781541736184 --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/rumble-with-michael-moore/message

Ep. 54: Don’t Panic. PANIC.

Overnight the hospitals in New York began to drown. ICUs are filling up. There aren’t enough ventilators. Only a few masks are left. Many doctors and nurses already have the virus, and too many are being hospitalized themselves. A woman in Michael’s apartment building tested positive and died. The day we have dreaded is here. If we scramble - if we scream bloody murder - if we act smart, today, might there be a way out? Trump has shut all the doors. Forget for now about beating him in November. A number of us won’t live 'til November. We need to beat him now, beat down those doors he’s blocking, so that a million voters don’t die. ************** Music Credit: Escape from New York (Original Film Soundtrack) - Main Title - John Carpenter https://music.apple.com/us/album/main-title/100959866?i=100959665 --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/rumble-with-michael-moore/message
Michael Moore sounds the alarm like never before. We don’t have days — we have HOURS left to act. Trump’s weeks of inaction and leading the public to believe this virus is “a hoax” will now cost millions of people their lives. Perhaps we can save some of them — but only if everyone who hears this podcast takes action today. Michael exposes the facts that have been kept from the public. He reveals what he’s been told by several public health experts, doctors, government officials and one source who is in frequent and direct contact with President Trump. None of it is pretty. There will be no more school this year — and maybe little or none next year as well. Our hospitals are about to get slammed and overwhelmed on a massive scale. The Army Corps of Engineers must be called up to build dozens of field hospitals. We will not have enough nurses and doctors. The government must nationalize industries to build the ventilators and other equipment we need. This must happen this week. Mike issues a call to action to save lives and for all of us to make serious sacrifices like we never have before. ********** Call your U.S. Senators: 202-225-3121 Call your U.S. Rep: 202-224-3121 WATCH: Mechanical Ventilation Explained Clearly - Ventilator Settings & Modes https://youtu.be/gk_Qf-JAL84 The Sewell Avery photo: http://bit.ly/3d8hvsN --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/rumble-with-michael-moore/message
In a modern, functioning, democratic society, how should a public health crisis be handled? And what would America's response to the coronavirus pandemic look like if we had a universal healthcare system such as Medicare For All? Michael discusses this with Dr. Abdul El-Sayed, a physician and epidemiologist and the former Health Commissioner in the City of Detroit.

Michael Moore reveals conversations he's had with public health and security experts, foreign journalists and government officials (plus one source directly in contact with President Trump) to share the awful truth: we may lose multiple times more Americans to coronavirus than the total number of American troops killed in World War II; this is the most serious pandemic since the 1918 flu;  President Trump is actively and purposefully holding up the federal government response and putting millions of lives at risk. ********** READ:  Coronavirus: Why You Must Act Now https://medium.com/@tomaspueyo/coronavirus-act-today-or-people-will-die-f4d3d9cd99ca WATCH: Rep.

There is one reason why Joe Biden has emerged as the Democratic frontrunner - the concept of "electability." While all of the exit polls show that Bernie Sanders' policy ideas are the most popular among voters, Joe Biden is winning races on the strength of his perceived ability to defeat Donald Trump. But is he really the "safe" and "electable" choice? Michael Moore discusses the major flaws behind this thinking, including revealing conversations he's had with Democratic officials and media insiders. ****************** Music Credit: Big Sean (feat.

The Democratic nominating contest is down to Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders. The Biden campaign’s plan appears to be to hide Biden from the voters as much as possible and allow nostalgia for the Obama years and positive media coverage carry him to victory.

What if the sun rose on the West? What if, on Tuesday night at 8pm ET, the first Super Tuesday results had been announced from the largest and most diverse state in the country, California? ”Huge win for Bernie Sanders! A huge delegate lead!" An hour later, in conservative, Mormon, Utah, “the winner is....Bernie Sanders!” Then Colorado comes next…”another victory for Bernie Sanders! And in a key swing state!” How we were presented the results on Tuesday night, which has turned this into a two-person race between Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders with only a handful of delegates separating them, has greatly affected the public perception of the race. While Bernie Sanders is now the underdog, it is a close race, and the American people must hear vigorous debates between Biden and Sanders about who they are, what they believe, what their plans are for the country and how they will defeat Trump. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/rumble-with-michael-moore/message
The corporatist, centrist wing of the Democratic Party has gotten in formation. Joe Biden is their man. The mainstream media is endlessly promoting him and not hiding their bias. Sadly, many of them would rather have Donald Trump in the White House than Bernie Sanders. Michael Moore gives an impassioned plea to everyone who wants to defeat Trump and to defeat the system which gave us Trump to not give in to the failed establishment that handed us Trump in the first place. The future of the county and of humanity depends on it. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/rumble-with-michael-moore/message

The Democratic political, corporate and media establishment were giddy on Saturday night as the South Carolina election returns showed a big victory for Joe Biden.

Four days until Super Tuesday, Michael lays out the stakes of how important Tuesday's elections are what role coronavirus will play in shaping our views of this election.  We are only as safe as the human being who has no health insurance or access to medical care. A nation that has millions of people who are not insured or are under-insured means that millions of American's are encouraged to NOT seek tests or treatment - which makes the coronavirus that much more dangerous. *********** Watch "SiCKO" here: https://youtu.be/YbEQ7acb0IE --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/rumble-with-michael-moore/message

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 --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/rumble-with-michael-moore/message

Christopher Hitchens is dearly missed. Moore and his idiotic rephrasing and misleading rhetoric going as far back as 9/11 will never be missed. Phone your Congressman and get Moore interned for treasonous words.

Maybe our medical experts can trick Trump into utilizing the Defense Production Act by assuring him that workers will be able to go back to work by Easter, if he does so? Since Trump is such an idiot, he might buy into it. We need to beat him by his own game.

Michael, I truly appreciate your leadership in this hard, frightening time. Thank you for doing your best in trying to enlighten people about many things, and at the moment, about the situation on the ground. I just posted a tweet about Trump’s attempt to push people back to work: “Attorney General has recently announced that anyone spreading the virus deliberately will be considered a terrorist. But what about Trump who wants people back to work by Easter? Trump is the most dangerous terrorist of all. He is the Terrorist in Chief.”

Maybe i don't understand politics well or perhaps the country as a whole.....i can say that i have been following progressive outlets for quite some time and i am very much a fan of Rumble which i have listened to almost 98% of the releases.... so one common thing i find on all progressive outlets is blaming the main stream media which i find to be a bit ridiculous because in my opinion at the end of the day its the people deciding what they want...for instance however the media reports about the Trump's doing on the current outbreak of the virus they can see what is actually going on around them but despite all what is going on, like shortage of medical equipments, simple things like masks and gown and testing kit polls are showing that the approval rating of Trump is going higher and higher...i mean i don't trust any kind of statistics that just tells me the percentage w/o the base like how many people participated but still how can anyone be approving of the steps that this dummy is taking while seeing what is actually going on regardless of reports from any kind of media... again same thing with Biden....everybody sees that his mental situation is not sound and he is not going to deliver on any kind of policies that helps the working class but yet again the people casted their vote for him so how can anyone blame the media while its the people making the call... i believe that instead of blaming the media it is time to understand what the people want, maybe America is not ready for any kind of democratic socialism so its wise to educate the people on this issue rather than blaming the media, after all the media has their own agenda, but the its the peoples agenda that matters and unless elections are rigged for real, the people are casting what they want so lets stop saying the problem is the media, its the people. educate the people!!!!

anyone in their right mind knows that Bernie's plan is at least 10 years away from being a real M's free? what happens to the $135 pay now? If it's not free, how much will it cost? What will happen to the millions who have jobs in all the areas affrected by these changes? Why are you acting as if the voters are ignorant if they haven't agreed to vote for Bernie by now? I also think you know more about the negatives but are purposely hiding them. That is Lying Michael! You love being rebellious so much that sometimes I think you just go looking for a cause for the attention and income it provides you. so please don't be condescending toward non bernie voters. we don't need another revolution and if you don't see how seamless he makes bringing his dreams to fruition. and how ridiculous that is you need help too

Mike I don't believe what you're saying about Biden mostly because he does have a position on everything you said he hadn't. his position on Obamacare might bring us back but back is where we want to be after these 4 years. And what is wrong with YOU that more chaos looks good to you? if you don't think this country needs time mending the damage Trump did between us and each other and America and our allies
