    It is no small irony that the Hero of the DUmmies is a rich fat white guy. Michael Moore, Thicko himself, would be crowned the King of the DUmp, if there was such a thing. What's moore, some of the DUmmies would rather have Mikie for President than the guy that's in there now. Today we check out two Moore threads, this THREAD,"Michael Moore: 'ENOUGH!'" and this THREAD, "Michael Moore: I went into the polls to vote for a black man and got a white man!" But before we get to those threads, we sing this tribute to the...
  • Michael Moore Belongs on Same Shelf With Thomas Paine, Says NYT Book Critic

    The front of Wednesday’s New York Times Arts section featured Dwight Garner’s review of the new book by left-wing documentary film-maker Michael Moore, “Here Comes Trouble -- Stories From My Life.” Garner, a fan, called Moore (infamous for his anti-conservative conspiracy theories and vicious, purposely misleading mockery of Republicans) a “necessary irritant,” and in one nauseating paragraph suggested Moore’s book belonged alongside works by the revolutionary founding activist Thomas Paine.

    Post-9/11 MysteriesThe aftershocks of 9/11 have generated a bizarre collective amnesia. Strangely, both the media and the public rarely mention some of the most important aftershocks in the decade since 9/11. Here are some representative examples of landmark events that to this day remain mostly undiscussed.1. No more falling skyscrapers? Few imagined that the United States could go an entire decade without another major terrorist attack — other than freelancing jihadists’ killing members of the American armed forces. Almost monthly, U.S. authorities have thwarted serial attempts to cause mayhem on airliners, bridges, city squares, shopping malls, and high-rises. It was...

    Liberal firebrand Michael Moore called on President Obama to respond to the U.S. credit downgrade by arresting the leaders of the credit-ratings agencies. On his Twitter feed Monday, the Oscar-winning film director also blamed the 2008 economic collapse on Standard & Poor’s — apparently because it and other credit-ratings agencies did not downgrade mortgage-based bonds, which encouraged the housing bubble and let it spread throughout the economy. “Pres Obama, show some guts & arrest the CEO of Standard & Poors. These criminals brought down the economy in 2008& now they will do it again,” Mr. Moore wrote. Standard & Poor’s,...

    Like many, I was extremely hopeful when Obama won in 2008. And like many I’ve become totally disillusioned with the president and the political process. The debt ceiling fiasco is yet another illustration of Obama’s failures, not just because it’s a betrayal of his base and the American people, but because it further calls into question whether he’s a total fraud. In Winner Take-all Politics, political scientists Jacob Hacker and Paul Pierson argue that if Obama had his way his first year in office would have rivaled FDR’s infamous first 100 days as a juggernaut of reform. The book, which...

    Now, as if to hammer the final nail into any credibility the troubled DePape may have had, the ever-irrelevant Michael Moore has jumped into the fray with a show of public support. Moore, whose 15 minutes of fame evaporated around the same time the Bush presidency ended, felt compelled to do a little cross-border publicity whoring of his own. While he may claim that he cares deeply about the 'struggle' DePape is going through, it is all too obvious what the Fat Man's motives really are.

The "Fahrenheit 9/11" director has been setting Twitter aflame Wednesday afternoon urging the Obama administration to come clean about the circumstances surrounding the terrorist leader's death -- particularly in light of the White House's shifting account of last weekend's firefight in Abbottabad. The Oscar-winning director has been tweeting about his belief that Bin Laden should have received a trial, and his theory that Pakistan was keeping the Al Qaeda head under house arrest.

There is a scene in the film where Tony Montana’s boss, Frank Lopez, is describing what a “chazzer” is.

"This happened sometime during the night Tuesday night into Wednesday," said Plainfield Deputy Police Chief Michael Surprenant.

    In the very last days of his presidency, George W. Bush was so desperate to locate Osama bin Laden that he reportedly invited son Omar bin Laden to the White House. This, of course, according to Omar bin Laden himself; a spokesperson for the White House refused to confirm or deny the previous administration's activities. Bin Laden tells a Spanish newspaper that White House staff visited him in Qatar in January 2009 to make the invitation. "They invited me to accompany them to the White House, offered to defend, help, and protect me, on the condition that I helped them...

He’s made a career of trashing his country, and made a fortune doing so under the same capitalistic economic system he so bitterly criticizes and tries so hard to discredit. Question: Does a successful capitalist have any credibility at all trashing capitalism? Normally, no, but that doesn’t stop Mr. Moore, who is upset that the country’s wealth...

A kind of Moore-fatigue set in, even with his most ardent fans.

Considering the fact that this figure was only 21 percent back in the year 2000 and only 10 percent back in 1960 that is very frightening. The sad truth is that today the American people are more dependent on direct government payments than they ever have been before. What this does is that it...

Scott Walker, that would strip politicians of the power to reward government employee unions for their political support by committing taxpayer money to their members' extravagant pensions and other fringe benefits. The near-unanimity of the vote belied the controversy over the legislation. The Wisconsin Senate has 33 members: 19 Republicans and 14 Democrats. Only Republicans participated in yesterday's vote.

    Michael Moore used some non-union crewmembers when union workers were available in the production of his latest film "Capitalism: A Love Story," a documentary that argues the capitalist system allows for greedy corporations to exploit working-class people. "For all of the different jobs on the movie that could have used union labor, he used union labor, except for one job, the stagehands, represented by IATSE," said a labor source unauthorized to talk about Moore's decision not to hire members of The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees. In a statement issued to ABCNews.com, Moore's agent, Ari Emanuel, said the filmmaker...

    Filmmaker Michael Moore and U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin were among those who pumped up a pro-union crowd of more than 12,000 at the Capitol on Saturday to protest Gov. Scott Walker's budget repair bill. The crowd was substantially smaller than those on the past two Saturdays. Capitol police estimated 12,000 people gathered for the outdoor rally and that 7,385 people entered the Capitol building itself throughout the day. Moore praised the 14 Democratic senators who left the state to block a vote on the bill, saying they'll go down in the history of labor in America.

    (VIDEO AVAILABLE AT THE LINK) "They're sitting on the money, they're using it for their own -- they're putting it someplace else with no interest in helping you with your life, with that money. We've allowed them to take that. That's not theirs, that's a national resource, that's ours. We all have this -- we all benefit from this or we all suffer as a result of not having it," Michael Moore told Laura Flanders of GRITtv. "I think we need to go back to taxing these people at the proper rates. They need to -- we need to see...

    Controversial schlockumentarian Michael Moore this week unveiled a new website giving high school students a venue to have their views published. Under the headline "Join My High School Newspaper" were words destined to frighten parents across the fruited plain: "Students: I am inspired by this moment in history that you've made happen. From Egypt to Wisconsin, you are leading a much-needed non-violent revolt. I want to do my part to help. I've decided to turn a page of my website over to you, the high school students who are raising a ruckus. Here you will be able to write what...

    Filmmaker Michael Moore has sued Harvey and Bob Weinstein, accusing the brothers of “Hollywood accounting tricks” and “financial deception” that cheated him out of at least $2.7 million in profits from the hit documentary Fahrenheit 9/11. Moore's claim may be legitimate. It may not be. Regardless, his choice to sue is further evidence in the ongoing case against his character in the court of public opinion. Moore's entire career has centered around excoriating capitalism and profit. One of Moore’s most strongly held convictions is that, as he declared on the CNN program Crossfire in 2002, “Capitalism is a sin....

    Al Gore, Arianna Huffington, and Michael Moore, in varying degrees and contexts, have long indicted capitalism for the inequality of its spoils. Yet recent news suggests that their critique of the capitalist status quo is a very good capitalist way of making lots of money.

    At least Michael Moore didn't have the chutzpah to sue Harvey and Bob Weinstein in a New York City court. Because there's no way a jury in the city that suffered through the attack on the World Trade Center would give Moore a penny. Today, Moore filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court for breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, and even fraud arising out of his audit of his controversy documentary Fahrenheit 9/11. Moore is seeking at least $2.7 million in what he claims are unpaid profits. But I've learned that the Weinsteins have already paid Moore...
