The violent, insurrectionist, January 6th mob attempting to overturn the election results are part of a long line of a reactionary and white supremacist elements within American politics who will resort to violence or chicanery when they don't get their way electorally. They are now at the center of the Republican party and we will have to deal with their undemocratic impulses and threats of violence as a regular feature of our politics unless we do something about it now. Historian Rick Perlstein has brilliantly documented the modern conservative movement, and he joins Michael to discuss January 6th and its aftermath, positive early moves by the Biden administration, and the ugly legacy of Rush Limbaugh that contributed to today's violent, undemocratic and dangerous Republican party.

Ep. 166: Idiot Wind

2021-02-1901:08:5613

Between the stupid disaster occurring in Texas to the continuing stupid rampage of Covid-19 to the death of S. Rush Limbaugh, it's been a banner week for enforced ignorance and prideful stupidity in America. Michael Moore makes the connection between the unique strain of American idiocy, the never-ending addiction to the myths about the "free market" and privatization, and one of the loudest and most destructive voices in the country with his legacy of ignorance, hate, fear and violence he leaves behind. Finally, Michael reflects on the passing of Jim Ridgeway, an investigative journalist who left an indelible mark in journalism, on the left, and in Michael's life and career.

Charles Blow is a columnist at the New York Times, and commentator on CNN and the author of a new book, "The Devil You Know: A Black Power Manifesto." His voice is like no other in the media. He joins Michael to discuss the problem with lumping together "people of color," why political attempts at "unity" have often been at the expense of and to the detriment of Black Americans and minority groups, and his radical geographic plan for how to increase the political and economic power of Black American as he's detailed in his new manifesto.

Michael is joined by the director and co-writer of "Judas and the Black Messiah" Shaka King , a long with Fred Hampton Jr., to discuss the U.S. government assassination of Black Panther Party leaders Fred Ham p ton and Mark Clark in 1969, how much (or little) progress has been made by Black Americans since then, why Fred Hampton was seen as a threat by J. Edgar Hoover, and how this provocative film about the FBI infiltrating and murdering American citizens came into existence. Later, Michael is joined by the sister of Black Panther Party Defense Captain Mark Clark, Gloria Jackson Clark, who was living with her mother in Flint, Michigan when they found out on TV that Mark Clark had been killed alongside Fred Hampton.

On Day 3 of the second impeachment trial of Donald Trump, the Democratic impeachment managers unveiled stunning and maddening video proof of the violent, insurrectionist mob being instigated by Trump and showing their lethal and deadly actions and intentions. Footage we've never seen before of Senators running for their lives was among the evidence that showed how the January 6th, 2021 was even worse than we thought. Michael Moore reflects on today's stunning testimony. The Senate must convict this thuggish sociopath and forbid him for running for office again, and any Republican member of congress who voted in favor of the insurrectionists must be shunned, shamed, defeated and removed.

After first being drafted in 1923 by two leaders of the women’s suffrage movement and then finally being passed by Congress in 1972, the century-long struggle to have the Equal Rights Amendment ratified and gender-equality enshrined in the U.S. Constitution is finally on the brink of succeeding. That's because in 2020, the state of Virginia became the 38th state to ratify the E.R.A. matching the two-thirds threshold needed to ratify a constitutional amendment. However, an arbitrary 7-year time limit on the 1972 legislation has provided one final hurdle that advocates for women's equality must overcome. Rep. Jackie Speier of California has been leading the charge in Congress on the E.R.A. since she got there in 2013. The day after Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were inaugurated, Rep. Speier reintroduced this bill to remove the arbitrary time limit and put the E.R.A. on the path to ratification. She joins Michael to discuss the roadmap for what we all need to do to make equal rights for women a reality.

We are in an age of mass confusion, political instability, and social distrust. Even within many families, there's a sense that we are living on different planets, with different realities, competing sets of facts, and values and beliefs that directly contradict one another. So how do we, as a species, go about living together when we don't trust, don't like and even feel mortally threatened by one another? Viggo Mortensen is one of the most talented, dynamic and versatile actors of our time. He has written, directed and stars in a new film that captures this tension within a family, and beautifully depicts their attempts at surviving one another in these tense times. He joins Michael to discuss his directorial debut, these turbulent times we are experiencing, art during the pandemic, living in Spain, the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and when he first learned that he would die one day.

When President Biden moved into the White House, one of the changes to the Oval Office included removing a massive portrait of President Andrew Jackson and replacing it with a portrait of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. In the weeks leading up to being sworn in, Biden and his team studied biographies of Roosevelt in the hopes of emulating the bold, heavy-handed use of the federal government to help solve monumental crises. One of these great biographies is "Traitor to His Class: The Privileged Life and Radical Presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt," which was written by historian H.W. Brands. Michael is joined by Brands to discuss how and why Roosevelt succeeded and what Biden must do to achieve similar success. Michael also shares his thoughts on Congresswoman Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez's IG Live about the threats to her life during the January 6th mob violence and includes the audio from AOC's message.

100,000 Americans have died since New Year's Day due to the coronavirus. The decades-long planned bombardment of the federal government, started by Ronald Reagan and completed by Donald Trump, has left us with a feckless, confused, and backwards response to the Covid-19 pandemic. Fortunately, we have a new, Democratic administration trying to fix this mess, but Michael Moore has an even bolder idea: A World War II-level aggressive American government action needed to prevent hundreds of thousands of more unnecessary deaths in the coming months. Mike also shares his surprising early impressions of the first weeks of the Biden/Harris administration.

The Democrats are now in control of the White House, and have majorities in the House and the Senate and have several massive emergencies they were elected to deal with. However, as Republicans made clear when Obama was President, and with the GOP turning even more nefarious since then, they will ruthlessly try to stymie the Biden administration no matter what they try and accomplish. Their best instrument to undercut democracy from working is Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and the cynical use of the threat of a filibuster. Will Americans (and the Democratic party) really let a misused legislative tactic prevent the government from making any progress on Covid, the economy, health care or anything else? Michael is joined by Adam Jentleson, a former top aide to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who has written a book about the undemocratic U.S. Senate and the need to kill the filibuster for the sake of democracy.

It's over. It's finally fucking over. Donald Trump's presidency is finished. On Inauguration Day 2021, Mike takes us back to Inauguration eve 2017, hours before Donald Trump was to be sworn in as President, where he read Langston Hughes' very timely 1935 poem "Let America Be America Again" at 3AM in a Washington D.C. hotel room. Mike recounts that night in D.C., on the brink of Trump's presidency (and Women's March the following day) and also shares new thoughts on how, four years later, in a militarized "Green Zone" in our nation's Capital, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris take the reigns of a beaten and bruised nation, but one full of promise.

As we've now learned of the proliferation of military and police who helped organize and who participated in the insurrection, the people Biden and Harris must actually fear are the ones wearing guns, camo and a badge. Take down the fences and send home the National Guard. The terrorists are not coming from the outside. The real terrorists are already inside the house (and the House!). January 6th was their horror movie version of calling from somewhere downstairs. Michael Moore shares his latest thinking on the ongoing terrorist threat from the American right-wing, how the white supremacist infiltration of law enforcement and the military poses our biggest challenge, why the white, patriarchal society's perceived losing of power will motive their anger and hate for a long time, and why Biden-Harris must stick to their plans to hold the inauguration on the Capitol steps.

After more than six years of no accountability for former Michigan Governor Rick Snyder for his actions leading to the poisoning of the city of Flint, Snyder was arraigned on Wednesday for two counts of willful neglect of duty. He is the first of Michigan’s 49 governors in 184 years to face charges related to their time in office. If convicted, he could face up to one year in jail and up to $1,000 in fines. Snyder is among nine senior officials who are facing a total of 42 criminal charges for their actions that caused a deadly Legionnaires’ disease outbreak in Genesee County, and caused permanent, irreversible brain damage due to lead poisoning to thousands of Flint children. Michael is joined by investigative journalist Jordan Chariton who had doggedly reported on the plight of the people of Flint and the wide-ranging cover-up by Snyder and his henchman. They discuss why it's taken this long for any sort of legal action to be taken against Snyder, why his misdemeanor charge is not enough, and what we must do now.

They knew. The government knew and law enforcement knew that what took place on January 6th, 2021 was not an isolated incident or a total surprise. Not only were right-wing organizations, led by Donald Trump, planning this attack out in the open, but as far back as 2009 a Department of Homeland Security threat assessment warned of the growing right-wing domestic terror threat within America. Rather than heed the warning, the author of the post was attacked by the right-wing, the Obama administration was forced to retract the report, and everyone who worked on it was eventually out of their jobs. The author of the report was a former DHS analyst named Daryl Johnson, who joins Michael to discuss the rising terror threat from within, why it won't end anytime soon, how Trump "poured fuel on an already burning fire," and what we all must do to defend ourselves and protect humanity. Plus, Mike shares his thoughts on Impeachment Day #2, the awful press conference held by the Department of Justice and FBI, and the long overdue news that charges will soon be filed against former Michigan Governor Rick Snyder and his associates for the poisoning of the water and the children of Flint, Michigan.

Many of the attackers are still in D.C. They were aided and abetted by certain members of the police, military and Republican party.

Flint, Michigan Democratic Congressman Dan Kildee has been friends with Michael Moore since they were both teenagers. Throughout the terrorist attack on the Capitol yesterday, he was in frequent contact with Michael about what was transpiring. He joins Michael on Rumble to describe how it felt to not know if he would live or die as he was trapped inside the House chamber, why Members of Congress told family and staff to not show up at the Capitol yesterday, how law enforcement failed to protect them, and why Trump must be removed so he doesn't do more damage in his final 13 days in office. Rep. Kildee also described walking through the damaged and ransacked Capitol building, his disgust with his House and Senate colleagues for aiding and abetting the terror attack, and how white men with American and Confederate flags can literally get away with treason. "I just felt that we were fucked. We were sitting ducks." - Rep. Kildee Here's the video Rep.

Michael Moore was in personal contact for five hours during this terrorist siege with Congressman Dan Kildee of Flint, Michigan, who was among the 30 members who stayed inside the House chamber as it was stormed by the armed mob. He shares this first-hand account as the Members hit the floor in fear of their lives. Shots were fired. A woman died. We need to deal with these traitors in the most aggressive way so that this never happens again. And their traitorous leader, Donald J. Trump, MUST be arrested tonight. No excuses. NO mercy.

As re the idea that once you resort to violence you have lost: we are now seeing MAGA nation push the idea that the violence of January 6th was leftists and imposters posing as Trump supporters. so, does that mean they will think we have lost? if so, then what happens?

Straw man arguments abound in this episode. Moore has become so unbalanced in his arguments that he has become the polar opposite extreme of those he opposes on the far right. used to.enjoy this but not listening anymore, he is just one big and everlasting whine.

Gimme a break Mike. Getting another 11 GOP Senators to find a conscience? It's just like when you said that there was a chance for witnesses in Toad45's first impeachment. You would be better off trying to convince Biden to not just let this get swept under the rug.

I don't know about watching the proceedings right before bed... the case against Trump is being presented with stunning clarity and detail and pathos. the most difficult part for me is watching it while knowing that the sedition caucus will likely acquit. How?!?!?

Thank you for acknowledging the work that Biden has done since his inauguration, and taking back some of the Biden bashing that you were doing even just before the election.

I believe there's a difference between unity and unanimity. working together doesn't mean we have to agree on everything. and it certainly doesn't mean letting criminals and terrorists go unpunished.

We are safe and warm. Power outage and current issue of inability to recognize that next week, the USA may be Germany 2.0... Metaphor only. What the police (Trump) decide to call us is up to them. Up to half of the national guard are cops and WE just paid for thier transportation to OUR capital to finish the job. If like me, you think OUR current events are not a real threat, I love you, and we are wrong! This is really me. Not some re-twit bullshit. Read this again. Hope I'm the nut. Not WE don't care

Man. I'd heard snippets of this call over the news, but hearing it beginning-to-end really brings it home. I keep underestimating how low Trump can go, how bad he can be, how stupid he can sound, how menacing and argumentative and rude and childish... Trump is an absolute tortellini.

if most of the cabinet resigns over the weekend, is the 25th amendment still an option?

But, but, 28% of registered voters are Republican, 29% Democrat and 49% Independent. How does that fit your, "the Democrats have won"?

Michael needs to go on a walk and clear his mind. This episode was very rambling and incoherent.
