    Filmmaker Michael Moore was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award, while Won’t You Be My Neighbor won the Best Documentary and Best Director categories at the third annual Critics’ Choice Documentary Awards, held last night at BRIC in Brooklyn. Robert De Niro presented the award to Moore right before rushing off to appear on SNL, calling him “a true, true American hero … one of the greatest truth- tellers in this country right now.” Moore used his acceptance speech to finish his 2003 Oscar speech for Bowling for Columbine. At that ceremony, he had been pulled off the stage and...

    May 27, 2004 | Filmmaker Michael Moore filmed an interview with American Nicholas Berg in the course of producing his documentary film "Fahrenheit 9/11" before Berg left for Iraq, where he was taken hostage and killed, Moore confirmed to Salon in a statement Thursday. The 20 minutes of footage does not appear in the final version of "Fahrenheit 911," according to the statement. Word of the footage reached Salon through a source unaffiliated with Moore or his film "Fahrenheit 9/11," which is reported to feature stark images of U.S. civilians and soldiers grappling with conditions in war-torn Iraq, as well...

    Despite "a Hulk-like exterior," Cesar Sayoc, the Florida man charged with sending 14 bombs to President Trump’s political opponents, was “a lost dog with no direction home,” Michael Moore wrote in an Instagram post Sunday in which he revealed footage his crew shot of a February 2017 rally that Trump held in Melbourne, Fla., in which Sayoc can been seen as part of an angry crowd chanting "CNN sucks!" Although the three-minute-38-seconds of raw footage did not make it into Moore’s current film, Fahrenheit 11/9, Moore — who himself was pictured, with a rifle’s cross hair superimposed on his image,...

    Osama bin Laden, the founder, and leader of terrorism conglomerate al-Qaeda, who was responsible for the deadly and devastating Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on U.S. soil, never was hiding in Afghanistan or its damp caves, according to explosive revelations in a new book from intelligence insiders and highly secret government documents. Thousands of Americans died that day and many more in the wretched aftermath. Instead, incredibly, bin Laden was whisked to a safe house in Iran following the deadly attacks on the World Trade Centers in New York, the Pentagon and the downing of a commercial jet in western Pennsylvania...

    It falls to Michael Moore’s empty stomach to help explain to me the difference between hope and optimism. “Right now, I’m hoping that somebody will feed me today,” he says. But that hope is passive. It may whet his appetite, but the disappointment will be all the more crushing if it isn’t satisfied. On the other hand, he explains, optimism is constructive, strategic. “I’m in a first world country, and somewhere I have a wallet with a credit card and some money in it. So the optimist in me has credibility, because it’s safe to say I will eat. Does...

    It’s been almost two years since Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election to Donald Trump in a stunning upset. Director Michael Moore lays out his take on how Trump pulled off the surprise victory in his latest film, Fahrenheit 11/9, in theaters Friday. (The title is a riff on the day when the race was called for Trump and the title of his 2004 movie Fahrenheit 9/11). In his new doc, the liberal Moore slams Republicans, showing footage of Adolf Hitler dubbed with Trump speeches. But he also criticizes Democrats, claiming that the party rigged the Democratic National Convention to...

    Moore’s Law: Life is Older than Earth Itself — “A Process that Began Billions of Years Before the Formation of Our Solar System” Posted on Sep 24, 2018  As life has evolved, its complexity has increased exponentially, just like Moore’s law which states that the number of transistors on an integrated circuit doubles approximately every two years. The regression suggests that if life takes 10 billion years to evolve to the level of complexity associated with homo sapiens, then we may be among the first, if not the first, intelligent civilization in the Milky Way, negating Drakes Equation.Our Solar...

    Michael Moore's latest anti-Republican documentary tanked at the box office compared to his movies from a decade ago, as “Fahrenheit 11/9” barely registered with a $3.1 million take on its first weekend. The title was a play on his 2004 documentary “Fahrenheit 9/11” that sought to expose mishandlings in President George W. Bush’s White House following the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. The latest film, as Fox News previously reported, sought to do the same to President Trump at a key time for the country: the 2018 midterm elections. “Fahrenheit 11/9” took in $3.1 million in 1,719 cinemas — a large debut for...

    [Snip] So, in that sense, it’s no surprise that Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 11/9 tanked in its whopping 1,719 theater wide release debut. [Snip] folks are even less likely to flock to an openly political documentary, and frankly even those on the left don’t necessarily want to pay to see a 125-minute crash course of the current horrors of the day. I’d gladly pay triple the ticket price to see a version of the movie without you-know-who babbling incoherently. I’d argue that Moore’s motives in making the movie were less about spreading the word through its contents than in using the...

    The “Fahrenheit 11/9” director also said Americans should expect the “evil genius” to be re-elected in 2020. Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore said he believes President Donald Trump either wrote or directed one of his staffers to write the anonymous Op-Ed in The New York Times that described an alleged “resistance” effort within his administration. “Trump or one of his minions wrote it,” Moore told CNN in an interview published Sunday. “He’s the master distractor. He’s the king of the misdirect. If we have learned anything by now, it’s that he does things to get people to turn away.” He continued:...

    Michael Moore the Liberal blowhard, is at it again, he has come up with some more ridiculous claims to feed to the left. Moore was recently on the news promoting his latest political film, Fahrenheit 11/9, a play on his last movie’s title. This time focusing on the Trump presidency from of course a left bias. Moore appeared on MSNBC where he was interviewed by Chris Hayes. He spared no time before making some digs at Trump. Hayes asked Moore if he actually believed that Trump was America’s last president. “I think it’s possible, absolutely. I think that we have...

    Gun control activist David Hogg joined activist Michael Moore in Canada for the premiere of his anti-Trump film "Fahrenheit 11/9." "I have a question for you guys: Who's ready to save America? Who's ready to make America the country we say it is on paper and make it the actual country that it wants to be?," Hogg asked the Canadian crowd. "I think the most important thing to realize, however, is the problems we face as a country, whether it be water in Flint, Michigan or the amount of mass incarceration of people of color that can't vote." "In Florida,...

After screening Moore’s anti-Trump “Fahrenheit 11/9” at the Toronto Film Festival, Hogg and other Parkland, Florida high school students joined the millionaire filmmaker on stage during a Q&A. “I have a question for you guys,” Hogg said after grabbing the mic from Moore. “Who’s ready to save America?” The Canadian audience cheered. “Who’s ready to make America the country we say it is on paper, and make it the actual country that it wants to be?” he asked.

Page Six reported Thursday the lawsuit was newly filed in Manhattan Supreme Court this week. Glynn's lawyer claimed in court documents that Gylnn was supposed to receive four percent of total revenue from their partnership. Page Six reported that Glynn only got $541 in...

    The New American ^ | 11 August 2018 | Selwyn Duke
    Leftist filmmaker Michael Moore says that his new “documentary,” Fahrenheit 11/9, will help “bring Trump down.” Curiously, however, he also predicts that President Trump will “win the 2020 election” and be the “last president.” So is he implying that he and his fellow travelers, after destroying Trump, will also destroy the presidency itself? Far more likely is that Moore (shown) is contradicting himself because he’s speaking based on emotion, which changes with the wind. Nonetheless, Moore’s passionate useful-idiot advocacy of the anti-Trump “resistance” certainly does undermine our republic. Moore’s title, Fahrenheit 11/9 — referencing the day after the 2016 election...

    “Fahrenheit 9/11,” Michael Moore’s polemic about George W. Bush and the War on Terror, remains the highest-grossing documentary of all time. If the national mood was splintered when that movie opened in 2004, it’s nothing compared to what it is now, almost two years into Donald Trump’s presidency. So, naturally, Moore is channeling his most famous film to explore that exact subject: “Fahrenheit 11/9” seeks to “bring Trump down” before November’s midterm elections. HuffPost has an exclusive look at the first trailer for “Fahrenheit 11/9,” a reference to the day Trump was declared the winner of the 2016 election. It...

    "This is a serious point," Moore warned on Bill Maher. Michael Moore is urging Americans to oppose Donald Trump right now, before the U.S. looks just like Gilead. "We are living 'The Handmaid's Tale,'" Moore said on "Real Time With Bill Maher" Friday night. "This is a serious point. The best part of the show is the flashbacks, where [Offred, played by Elizabeth Moss] tries to figure out where was the point where it was too late. Where was the point that if we all just had risen up, just done something? But because it happens in little increments. That's...

    Bill Maher began by asking Moore about the “Hail Mary” plan he supposedly had to prevent the replacement of Justice Anthony Kennedy. “Listen, the Senate right now is 50-49. Sadly, McCain will not be able to vote, so it’s a 50-49 vote,” Moore declared. “C’mon! We’ve got to push it off til after November.” “And I don’t trust every Democrat,” Maher told Moore. “I’ll join a million other people surrounding the United States Capitol,” Moore responded. “I will stand there. I will put my- Bill, let me tell you something. If this judge goes through, for at least the rest...

    In 2004, Michael Moore released his documentary Fahrenheit 9/11 about the run-up to the Iraq War. This September, he will premiere his latest film: Fahrenheit 11/9. As the liberal filmmaker told Stephen Colbert on The Late Show Thursday night, that date represents the night Donald Trump was elected president. “This is about how the hell we got in this situation and how we’re going to get out of it,” he said. After playing a clip from the film in which he tries to infiltrate Mar-a-Lago, Colbert asked him if he was “civil” to the people there. “I was as civil...
