Michael Moore

by -

Following President Elect Donald Trump’s press conference, documentary film maker Michael Moore appeared on MSNBC to say about Trump, “It was a masterful performance. He owned the room. He owned the day.”

Make no mistake, Moore is no fan of the incoming president, but he has been the only consistent voice on the left that has stated again and again – going back to the primaries – that Donald Trump is a threat . . . because he can win.

Now, after Trump has won the election and is only days away from taking the helm of the United States’ top position, Moore is telling the media, and in this case, MSNBC, that Trump is a threat to them.

The video clip above, which was labeled by MSNBC, “Michael Moore: Donald Trump is ‘Godfather’ of Fake News,” is misleading as Moore covered a variety of topics and even took the time to school the MSNBC host that NBC is an investor in the fake news site, BuzzFeed.

Watch the interview above and comment below.

Dolt .45

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush is finally getting some attention.

After openly expressing his frustration with voters and their lack of enthusiasm for his campaign, a firestorm ignited over a simple post on Twitter.

Here it is:

‘Merica baby, ‘Merica. Jeb(!) had just made a stop at a firearms factory and was given an engraved handgun . . . admittedly it was Bush’s first firearm. The candidate allowed a picture of the minty-fresh .45 to go up on Twitter and everyone from Michael Moore to Edward Snowden is throwing a hissy-fit. They’ve even given the scandal a name . . . “Dolt. 45” Here’s a few of the hissies throwing a fit:

On that note, and in honor of Michael Moore, a reader who shares this publicly on Facebook and names the make and model of Jeb Bush’s handgun in the form below will be entered to win a handgun of their own! Winner will be selected on March 1, 2016.

[The Winner will be responsible for abiding by their local and state firearms laws and the firearm prize will be shipped to the winner’s preferred FFL. No purchase necessary, just share this article on Facebook and  properly name the make and model of the above firearm in the form above.]

Controversial liberal film director Michael Moore protested outside Donald Trump’s office in New York.

His anger was directed at Trump’s proposed travel ban for Muslims.

Moore posted a picture of himself on social media, by himself, holding up a sign that said, “We are all Muslim,” as he stood at the entryway to Trump Tower.

Moore was the only person to attend his protest.

Moore also posted a strongly-worded open letter on his own Facebook page, addressed to the bombastic Republican frontrunner:

“Dear Donald Trump:

You may remember (you do, after all, have a “perfect memory!”), that we met back in November of 1998 in the green room of a talk show where we were both scheduled to appear one afternoon. But just before going on, I was pulled aside by a producer from the show who said that you were “nervous” about being on the set with me. She said you didn’t want to be “ripped apart” and you wanted to be reassured I wouldn’t “go after you.”

“Does he think I’m going to tackle him and put him in a choke hold?” I asked, bewildered.

“No,” the producer replied, “he just seems all jittery about you.”

“Huh. I’ve never met the guy. There’s no reason for him to be scared,” I said. “I really don’t know much about him other than he seems to like his name on stuff. I’ll talk to him if you want me to.”

And so, as you may remember, I did. I went up and introduced myself to you. “The producer says you’re worried I might say or do something to you during the show. Hey, no offense, but I barely know who you are. I’m from Michigan. Please don’t worry — we’re gonna get along just fine!”

You seemed relieved, then leaned in and said to me, “I just didn’t want any trouble out there and I just wanted to make sure that, you know, you and I got along. That you weren’t going to pick on me for something ridiculous.”

“Pick on” you? I thought, where are we, in 3rd grade? I was struck by how you, a self-described tough guy from Queens, seemed like such a fraidey-cat.

You and I went on to do the show. Nothing untoward happened between us. I didn’t pull on your hair, didn’t put gum on your seat. “What a wuss,” was all I remember thinking as I left the set.

And now, here we are in 2015 and, like many other angry white guys, you are frightened by a bogeyman who is out to get you. That bogeyman, in your mind, are all Muslims. Not just the ones who have killed, but ALL MUSLIMS.

Fortunately, Donald, you and your supporters no longer look like what America actually is today. We are not a country of angry white guys. Here’s a statistic that is going to make your hair spin: Eighty-one percent of the electorate who will pick the president next year are either female, people of color, or young people between the ages of 18 and 35. In other words, not you. And not the people who want you leading their country.

So, in desperation and insanity, you call for a ban on all Muslims entering this country. I was raised to believe that we are all each other’s brother and sister, regardless of race, creed or color. That means if you want to ban Muslims, you are first going to have to ban me. And everyone else.

We are all Muslim.

Just as we are all Mexican, we are all Catholic and Jewish and white and black and every shade in between. We are all children of God (or nature or whatever you believe in), part of the human family, and nothing you say or do can change that fact one iota. If you don’t like living by these American rules, then you need to go to the time-out room in any one of your Towers, sit there, and think about what you’ve said.

And then leave the rest of us alone so we can elect a real president who is both compassionate and strong — at least strong enough not to be all whiny and scared of some guy in a ballcap from Michigan sitting next to him on a talk show couch. You’re not so tough, Donny, and I’m glad I got to see the real you up close and personal all those years ago.

We are all Muslim. Deal with it.

All my best,
Michael Moore”

Moore has a long history of liberal activism. Most notably, he was the director of the film Fahrenheit 9/11, which skewered the Bush Administration’s response to the September 11th attacks, shortly before Bush’s re-election in late 2004.

It seems like now (with another movie coming out in a few weeks), Moore has focused his attention to an even more controversial Republican: Donald Trump.

American Sniper Widow

Proving once again that Middle American patriotism should not be underestimated, the Clint Eastwood film ‘American Sniper’ opened in wide release over the Martin Luther King weekend to filmgoers who plunked down a record-breaking $105 million in domestic box office to see a film that cost producers just $60 million to make.

The life story of a former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle pulled best in theaters located in Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, New York and California according to weekend data provided by Rentrak Corporation, a global media measurement and research company serving the entertainment industry.

“This is staggering. Its blockbuster numbers in January, the sort of numbers usually reserved for summer films and superhero movies,” said Rentrak senior analyst Paul Dergarabedian in USA Today.

Dergarabedian added, “this was maybe the most underestimated film of all time, considering that it did about twice what estimates predicted.”

“It shows the depth of the movie. It is playing in both red states and blue states,” Warner’s domestic distribution chief Dan Fellman told Hollywood Reporter analyst Brian Porreca.
Fellman continued:

“It’s the biggest opening of all time for a war film, but people don’t view it as a war film. It is about a true hero, and family and patriotism. It doesn’t matter that the movie is R-rated, which is sometimes a problem in smaller towns. This is the first real superhero movie.”

There was some disagreement among the Hollywood Left, which has led to Chris Kyle’s widow, Taya Kyle, cancelling appearances.

An event organizer that was hosting the widow told the Star Tribune, “Her reps just called me and apparently due to some comments made by Michael Moore, they are cutting off her press.”

Moore’s comments as well as the legal battle between Chris Kyle’s estate and Jesse Ventura have put a chill on candid conversations with Kyle’s widow.

Ventura sued Kyle’s estate in 2014 for defamation and won a $1.8 million verdict. The lawsuit money awarded to Ventura will go against Kyle’s widow and the two children the Navy Seal left behind after his death in 2013.

While Taya Kyle will continue some interviews, questions regarding Moore’s comments, Ventura and the ongoing murder trial of her husband’s killer are now off of the table.

Michael Moore Snipers are Cowards

Michael Moore of “Bowling for Columbine” and “Fahrenheit 9/11” fame took to Twitter over the weekend saying:

Moore went on to insinuate snipers from Iraq and Afghanistan are “brave”:

Moore’s comments fall in line with the release of “American Sniper,” a film about Chris Kyle, a Navy Seal who was known as one of the most lethal snipers in history.

Moore backtracked on his comments saying he never mentioned “American Sniper” but the comments were clearly taken for what they were.

Even Rob Lowe questioned Moore’s comments on Twitter:

Moore, who is quick to create his own facts regarding a number of issues may not have taken the time to look at the risk involved in being a sniper.

Snipers have to covertly place themselves not just behind enemy lines, but within rifle range – close. They do this alone or with a spotter. Not only do they have to get in, but they have to get out after being discovered . . . in many cases without support.

Snipers have one of the most dangerous jobs in the armed forces, and a reason why their level of skill goes beyond being handy with a rifle. A significant portion of sniper training is SERE training (Survival, Evasion, Resistance and Escape).

Marine Corps Scout Snipers must attend SERE School before Sniper School. Fifty percent of Marines (not recruits, but Marines), drop out of the program within the first 24 hours.

SERE training prepares snipers for what they may encounter during deployment. They are captured, tortured (beaten and some are water boarded), starved and trained to escape . . . and that’s just the training.

Real life for a sniper is much more unpredictable and dangerous.

Michael Moore’s closest relation to the military is his time spent in the Boy Scouts where he achieved Eagle Scout. Moore’s knowledge of the military and its professions is likely limited to what he’s watched on the big screen.

Over the weekend, the New York Times was slammed for running a piece where the news outlet apparently tried to cover up the motives...
