In the first part of Michael's conversation with New York Magazine's Rebecca Traister, they discuss the surprising aspects of Biden's first six months in office, the promise of America's political winds blowing to the left and the peril of permanent minority rule in America. Next week, we will air Part Two of Michael's conversation with Rebecca: an unplanned and challenging discussion about #MeToo, Harvey Weinstein, sexual harassment in progressive media, and what we can do about it.

With COVID-19 cases skyrocketing in the U.S. and around the world, and the Delta variant causing havoc, we must face the fact that this pandemic is on the verge causing much more death and illness as students prepare to go back to school next month. This is especially troublesome in regions in the U.S. and regions around the world where overwhelming majorities of citizens (especially teens and children) are unvaccinated. Mike is joined by Dr. Peter Hotez to explain how important the next few months will be, the never-ending battle with both the anti-vax and right-wing misinformation machines, and the inexpensive Covid-19 "people's vaccine" Dr. Hotez has developed at his hospital in Houston that could become one of the cheapest and most accessible vaccines throughout the world.

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. Since Michael spoke with Rep. Jackie Speier in February, the House has passed her bill to remove the deadline to ratify the E.R.A. Now, it's in the Senate's hands. Michael is joined by the ground-breaking TV anchor and President of the E.R.A. Coalition Carol Jenkins to discuss the next steps towards achieving gender equality in the U.S. Constitution.

In recent episodes of Rumble, Michael Moore has shared his ideas for an alternative to the American way of policing: The Department of Public Safety & Compassion. He's also shared his ideas for an alternative to our brutal and racist system of mass incarceration: The Department of Restorative Justice & Redemption. In this episode, Mike is joined by Desmond Cole, an award-winning journalist and activist who recently published his first book called “The Skin We’re In: A Year of Black Resistance & Power.” They discuss the intellectual underpinnings of the movement to defund the police and abolish the prison system, why white liberals should not fear these ideas, and how our society will be better off when we decide to treat each other differently. Plus, Mike shares an update on Darnella Frazier, the courageous teenager who filmed the execution of George Floyd. On Tuesday night her uncle was killed by Minneapolis police who were in the middle of a reckless car chase. Madness. Tragic.

Larry Charles is one of the great comedic writers, producers and directors of our time. His credits include his pivotal role during the first seasons of Seinfeld, along with Curb Your Enthusiasm, Mad About You, The Arsenio Hall Show, among many others. He directed the original "Borat," one of the great works of satire of all time. He directed "Religulous," a bold, genius broadside against organized religion. His 2019 Netflix series, "Larry Charles' Dangerous World of Comedy," is an epic journey across the world where comedians live actual dangerous lives. He joins Mike to discuss the state of non-fiction and political satire, the meaning of cancel culture and political correctness, entertainment and propaganda, and how advertisers, censors and an insurance company must sign off on everything we see on TV. They also share some personal stories, including how they created a sitcom pilot together that was greenlit by a major network, but then never made it to air due to advertisers’ objections.

Michael is joined by The Intercept's Jon Schwarz to discuss the shockingly unshocking report this week that the Saudi operatives who murdered Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi had received State Department-approved paramilitary training. They also discuss the recent foolish attacks on Rep. Ilhan Omar, the meaning and background of the phrase "moral equivalence," the AP's cowardly firing of Emily Wilder over her college advocacy for Palestinian human rights, and lies we are being told about "worker shortages."

America's prison system is brutal, stupid and inhumane. It makes us all less safe and has a terrible impact on other parts of our society such as health care, education, and even how we treat one another. "Reform" or band-aids will not make it better - it must be uprooted, abolished and replaced. Michael Moore recently proposed a "Department of Public Safety & Compassion" to replace the existing way we do policing. In this episode, he proposes a "Department of Restorative Justice & Redemption" to replace our existing Prison Industrial Complex. He is joined by Dan Berger, a scholar who has studied prison abolition for several years. They talk about the never-discussed constituency in America called "the criminalized majority," how cruel behavior in society is often taught by cruel institutions (like prisons) themselves, and what they would do if Kitty Dukakis were raped and murdered.

The private tax returns of America's wealthiest few individuals were just leaked to the non-profit journalists at ProPublica and they reveal an American plutocracy that has completely avoided paying personal taxes. We already knew that the wealthiest corporations were able to maneuver the tax code to their benefit, but the levels at which the ultra-wealthy are able to avoid taxes is maddening. And it is all LEGAL. Michael is joined by journalist and author Anand Giridharadas to discuss how they've been able to rig the system, why this is Exhibit A for why we need a wealth tax, and why so many working class Americans have been indoctrinated into supporting the rich and being against taxing them more.

In Dallas, Texas last week, 18 year-old high school valedictorian Paxton Smith decided at the last minute to throw away her school-approved graduation speech to address a new Texas law signed Republican Governor Greg Abbott that would make all abortions illegal as early as six weeks into a pregnancy. Video of her 3-minute speech has gone viral and caused a rumble - so she joins Rumble with Michael Moore to explain how she summoned the courage to deliver that speech, how positive the reaction has been, whether she defines herself as "politically active, and the best advice she's received since going viral. Finally, Michael Moore is confused as to why Joe Manchin was sitting behind the legendary Joan Baez at the Kennedy Center Honors on Sunday night singing along to "We Shall Overcome" to honor her when it is Joe Manchin's intransigence, selfishness and greed that needs to be overcome.

The billions of dollars that currently go to police departments across America are NOT contributing to the safety, health and well-being of our citizens. It's time to re-imagine how we think about "public safety" and "law and order." As police budgets continue to increase (despite calls to defund the police), Michael Moore shares a proposal for the creation of The Department of Public Safety & Compassion in every town in America. Rather than attempting to solve human problems by sending in men with badges and guns, we need to dismantle this anachronistic armed wing of the patriarchy and have a department that will serve and truly protect the public from the real dangers in our society: hunger, the lack of clean drinking water, mental health needs, insufficient healthcare, opioid addiction, inadequate public schools, etc. What if we had Public Safety officers whose sole job was to aid the homeless, the unemployed, the addicted, the mentally ill? Don’t they deserve to be protected? From us? Won’t every neighborhood be better off if those suffering in a society fueled by greed, racism and inequity were helped rather than jailed, abused and abandoned? Wouldn’t there in fact be less “crime” if we chose to attack the real crimes and the true criminals who’ve created these appalling conditions? Instead of a militarized police state, what if we built a compassionate state staffed by those with love in their hearts and the knowledge of how to provide the actual help people need when they call 911? Defund the police? De-police the police! Every neighborhood deserves better, much better. It’s the 21st century, folks. C’mon.

Filmmaker Raoul Peck has made one of the most audacious films to air on American television. The documentary series titled "Exterminate All The Brutes" tells the brutally honest history of colonialism, genocide and white supremacy, and dismantles the Eurocentric framework through which history is normally taught. He joins Michael Moore for a conversation on how this film got made, and what it has to say about the power of ignorance, the preservation of privilege and how the only way to upend all of this is for each of us to join the fight and never give up, no matter the consequences.

How is it that the richest and most powerful country in the world can't provide even the most basic of human needs for its citizens? What has been holding America back when much poorer countries are able to provide a more stable social safety net? Heather McGhee, one of our most thoughtful economic and policy thinkers has a new book out explaining that racism -- specifically the fear by white Americans that any gains by Black Americans come at their expense -- has reliably turned the majority of white Americans AGAINST government programs that would help all Americans for fear that it would be beneficial to people of color. She joins Michael to discuss what we can do to overcome this decades-long propaganda campaign that has afflicted white America, and how the idea of a "solidarity dividend" can unite a multi-racial, cross-class coalition to take on concentrated wealth and power and build a better country.

As the decades-long ethnic cleansing of Palestinians from their homeland by Israel has intensified over the past week, Michael Moore shares his thoughts on America's culpability in funding these atrocities. He also recounts his trips to the Occupied West Bank and Gaza in the 1980's, his history of activism with Flint and Detroit's large Jewish and Arab populations, and why the U.S. government must stop funding Israeli apartheid and violence. Michael also shares his concerns with the dangerous announcement by the CDC to loosen the mask standards when only one-third of Americans have been vaccinated, plus the scary news that the conservative Supreme Court will be taking up a new abortion case that might continue to weaken a women's right to choose.

A new report claims that U.S. and worldwide COVID deaths are actually much higher than the official numbers: over 900,000 deaths in the U.S. (as opposed to the official count of 574,000) and nearly 7 million worldwide (twice the official number of 3.24 million). This virus has ravaged the world and upended all of our lives. And we still can’t get the truth? However, as we live through an historically deadly pandemic, we are also living through one of the greatest scientific and medical breakthroughs in history. As Dr. Eric Topol tells Michael Moore, "we are so damn fortunate." In record time, we have developed multiple, extremely effective vaccines that are reaching millions of arms, that cause very limited side effects (and no side effects for the majority of people aside from a sore arm), and it's free. We have an unbelievable opportunity to crush the virus, severely limit the havoc it causes us all, and get back to living healthy lives. Without these amazing vaccines, we'd be staring down several more years of death and destruction. But thanks to these medical and scientific breakthroughs, we stand a fighting chance if we all continue to get vaccinated! Dr. Topol, who is the Executive Vice President of Scripps Research, one of the most important medical research institutions in the world, helps Michael put this all into perspective and clears up myths about the vaccine and about "herd immunity."

Due to the 50-50 split in the United States Senate, the fate of all critical legislation and of the Biden Presidency itself, lays in the hands of West Virginia's conservative Democratic Senator Joe Manchin. And Senator Manchin has made it very clear that he intends to use this power for all it is worth. Fine! Good! In this episode of Rumble, Michael Moore encourages Senator Manchin to go ahead and use that power, but do so for the good of the people of West Virginia. Bring home the bacon! High-speed internet! More funding for research at West Virginia University! Help for those suffering from opioid addiction! Job training and jobs for former coal workers! Michael also shares his love and appreciation for the state and its people. West Virginia has a rich history militant union action. The state also happens to be very poor. There are so many good, helpful things that Senator Manchin can deliver to the state of West Virginia if he wants to use his power wisely. Hasn’t anyone from the White House called Manchin and simply said, “just tell us what you want— and it’s yours!” Call Senator Manchin's office and encourage him to give Biden the votes he needs - but do it in return for getting a bunch of good stuff for the people of West Virginia! 202-224-3954 202-225-3121 Listen to Michael Moore & Pulitzer-winning Heath Policy writer Laurie Garrett on How To Defeat Covid: https://rumble.media/episode/its-like-herding-americans-how-to-defeat-covid-this-year-w-laurie-garrett/ Music in episode: "Hey Joe" - Jimi Hendrix https://open.spotify.com/track/3VMMmMR4IYL28n7oKHyUoD?si=db5468d8285e419a "Country Road" - WVU Band https://youtu.be/NPiXMzAgMEc Special offer for Rumble listeners!

Michael is joined by public health expert and Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Laurie Garrett to discuss the new reports that the United States of America will never reach herd immunity to the coronavirus. President Biden seemed somewhat defeated when he had to announce recently that we will have to settle for 70% getting just one shot by the 4th of July. They discuss how each of us are the most important ambassadors for total vaccination success. If 200,000 Average American citizens who are listening to this podcast each convince 10 people to get their shots — BOOM! Yes, there is a small portion of the American public who will simply refuse to get the vaccine and whom we cannot reach. However, most of the people avoiding vaccination have fears and skepticism — and each of us can help convince them with our support, encouragement, kindness and love. President Biden — don’t give up on us. We’ll get millions of those sleeves rolled up by summer!

Ep. 186: Biden Our Time

Ep. 186: Biden Our Time

2021-04-2801:00:109

Joe Biden is an unlikely savior. Nothing in his past indicated there was a second coming of FDR on its way. However... WTF is going on?! Elected President at a time of transformational change in America, he has chosen to read the political winds — and those winds have shifted left. The progressive worldview is in ascendance, and the demand by the American public for a big, active government that serves the needs of the American people is what the majority wants. Contrary to what he's done throughout his political career, Joe Biden is not punching left, but riding the progressive wave. And it is looking really, really good. While it's too soon to paint a full picture of the Biden presidency and whether this political change will last, Michael Moore shares candid thoughts about being shocked by how Biden has governed, asks leftists to understand and acknowledge political victories that are occurring, and also notes that there will be serious political battles ahead. He also shares a story of the first time he met Senator Biden in 2004, and makes an open, public plea to the President to keep delivering for the people, keep following his conscience, and keep telling Republicans and Larry Summers to fuck off.

It took only 10 hours of deliberations for a Minneapolis jury to find former police office Derek Chauvin guilty of second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter of George Floyd. The decision was swift, overwhelming, obvious, and yet, somehow, shocking. Maybe it should not have been such a shock that jurors in the political district that elected Rep. Ilhan Omar to Congress (twice) made the right decision. However, as Michael Moore explains in this EMERGENCY PODCAST SYSTEM episode of Rumble, it is not normal for these cases to go the right way. He shares his feeling of total shock, plus his warning to white Americans and police officers who do not want to see America change into a more diverse, just, and equitable society. He also explains how this one act of accountability is not the massive, revolutionary change we need to address white supremacy, criminal justice reform, and anti-Black racism. Finally, he pays tribute to Darnella Frazier, the courageous teenager who filmed the the Chauvin murder with a steady hand and a lot of gumption.

hi Michael, happy birthday! I love this podcast! honestly Elizabeth Warren was my first choice even if she didn't have a chance! I am as happy as you are about Joe! I worked for him I voted for him and I really like him a lot. I think he got a lot of experience with Obama his 30 + years as a senator. I'm so glad to see he's leaning left and helping working people! he is definitely my guy! and I am swooning over Kamala and Jill! now what do we do with the 74 million white supremacists? I adore your films and have been to see everyone on the 1st Friday night that they playing. I did not know you had written eight books but I have read several books by you and I will have to look up all your books. now go on and make another 12 movies and ride another eight books and campaign for Joey again or whoever is running as a dam in 4 years! a quick note about who I am. I started agitating in 1965 when I was 14, in Washington Square Park, NYC singing 'blowing in the wind' when it was new. i was protesting the Vietnam War. and I went from there and protested more and walked precincts and made a zillion calls and called my senators and representatives and emailed them and call them. I am 70 yrs. old now and am disabled. now I call and email when I can, mostly I wear my Politics on my chest and soon they will be on my face. Nancy Pelosi has a mask with her face on it. I can't wait to get it! take care and stay safe! Juliette Ashmoon, Ventura CA

I was working for an American multinational in South Africa in the Reagan, Apartheid eighties and Joe Biden was doing the right thing then, Corporations, cities and states followed his lead and started the boycotts and disinvestment that played the major part in ending that crime against humanity. I knew then that Joe Biden is the real deal. He really cares and he listens to his conscience. That fight of his wasn't political showboating it was the real deal.

Aaron Sorkin is one of the most eminent dingbats in all of entertainment history and informed the wretched political instincts of an entire generation of shitlibs.

Thank you Michael. unrelated to this episode I was happy to hear that the new infrastructure bill will include replacing 100% of the lead piping in the United States. I honestly believe this is because of you publicizing about Flint's water for years and years and years. Thank you.

well...that was hard to listen to but all of it needs to be faced squarely. I hope the question of how nonviolent people deal with violent lunatics will be explored further because it's one of a couple essential components of a strategy for moving forward with the American experiment.

You’ve been trying to sell this lie for almost two decades now. America is not the only country with mass shootings, in fact we’re not even the country with the most (Norway). I don’t know if you’re too fucking lazy to do research, or (more likely) just don’t care because it doesn’t support your narrative. You’re actually a talented film maker, it’s just to bad that your full shit.

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.
