Michael Moore film to be taken down

A new Michael Moore-produced documentary that takes aim at the supposed hypocrisy of the green movement is “dangerous, misleading and destructive” and should be removed from public viewing, according to an assortment of climate scientists and environmental campaigners. The film, Planet of the Humans, was released on the eve of Earth Day last week by its producer, Michael Moore, the baseball cap-wearing documentarian known for Fahrenheit 9/11 and Bowling for Columbine. Describing itself as a “full-frontal assault on our sacred cows”, the film argues that electric cars and solar energy are unreliable and rely upon fossil fuels to function. It

Jeez, Michael, we've only been throwing those facts in the Greenie's teeth for what... 20 or 30 years, now? What took you so long? And what facts have you twisted and warped on your trek to these conclusions? Someone with a gut like yours would be among the first to feel the bite of starvation if we went back to hunter-gatherer days.

Funny to see these clowns attack their own. But don't forget that You-Tube just today took down the video of two doctors who were on Laura last night. Their crime? Saying that this lockdown is counter-productive to getting rid of this C-19. It is terrifying how You-Tube and Facebook are controlling what people can see and here. And isn't it Google that owns You-Tube? These monopolies on speech and thouhg must be broken up.

Dissent from the dogma will not be tolerated and heretics will be censored and shunned. Only because burning at the stake is still illegal. And in the case of MM, would release a ton of carbon. One would have to plant an entire forest to compensate for those emissions.

Yes, Michael is saying that "green" energy is a farce but not that global warming is. He just says the proposed solutions will not work. His new solution, get rid of half the people. Seems there is a movie about that. Thanos snaps his fingers and half of the life forms in the universe are wiped out. Someone should get MM his own Infinity Gauntlet. You think the Left can't get any worse? They are trying REALLY hard.

After seeing the unconscionable fabrication that characterized his earlier "documentary" work, I swore I'd never watch more Moore. So although it's encouraging to hear that he's put together work to expose the fraudulent claims of 'green' tech, I'm still inclined not to watch. Planet of Humans isn't meant to represent a shift in his world view (away from 'progressive' globalism, to individual liberty and limited government), it's just to keep feeding his insatiable appetite for portraying his adversaries as frauds in a way that totally distracts audiences away from his own indulgence in fallacy and fraud. My instinct tells me it's most prudent just to stay away from him and any work of his.

"Real Time" host Bill Maher had some harsh words for the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, whose death paved the way for the confirmation of Justice Amy Coney Barrett. During a Monday night appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," Maher was asked about the moment when news of Ginsburg's death broke while he was taping his show and Jimmy Kimmel expressed his amazement at how his panel was "exactly right" at predicting how events that were going to play out.

The coronavirus struck the United States earlier this year with devastating force. In April, it killed more than 10,000 people in New York City. By early May, nearly 50,000 nursing home residents and their caregivers across the country had died. But as the virus continued its rampage over the summer and fall, infecting nearly 8.5 million Americans, survival rates, even of seriously ill patients, appeared to be improving. At one New York hospital system where 30 percent of coronavirus patients died in March, the death rate had dropped to 3 percent by the end of June. Doctors in England observed

PARIS - Professor Philippe Juvin, a leading member of Paris’ Georges-Pompidou hospital, told RTL radio on Wednesday that France had to accept a new, national lockdown to tackle a resurgence of the COVID-19 virus. “We must take it up,” said Juvin. French President Emmanuel Macron will give a televised address on Wednesday evening. His government has been exploring a new, national lockdown from midnight on Thursday, BFM TV reported, albeit a slightly more flexible one than the two-month shutdown that began in mid-March. Schools could remain open even as restrictions on people’s movements become more severe, BFM TV added.

WEST SALEM, Wis. - Supporters of President Donald Trump were very visible at the La Crosse Speedway in West Salem, and at similar Trump campaign events, Joe Biden supporters have also had a sizable presence nearby. That was not the case on Tuesday. Just outside the entrance to the Speedway there was a sparse group of people holding signs that read things like, 'He Lied = 226,000 Dead' and 'Dump Trump' as well as 'Hate Has No Home Here' and 'Black Lives Matter'. One woman said she was disappointed to see such a large crowd inside the rally. "I thought it was

INDIANAPOLIS — As cultural awareness grows, more people are choosing to celebrate our differences. But as we get closer to Halloween, you’re reminded not to reduce culture to a costume. So often around Halloween you’ll see Native Americans, Hispanics, Asians and Black people turned into caricatures of their culture. While it may seem a fun or a cool way to recognize another group of people, chances are it’s coming across offensive. Candy and costumes are what helps make Halloween what it is, and the fun it brings is great, but not when it delves into cultural appropriation. “People think that

However, Democrats are falling short of the edge they need in early voting to offset the Republicans’ anticipated big edge in election day voting in three of four battleground states where data is available.If pollsters adjusted to fix 2016 mistakes, the RealClearPolitics average in each state shows Biden winning 341-197 and Democrats taking control of the Senate.

QUINCY, FL – From rural churches to downtown streets, Democrat Joe Biden’s campaign is pushing hard to turn out one of his strongest but most uncertain bases of support - Black Floridians. Four years after Hillary Clinton was stung by diminished backing from Black voters, Biden is relying on this 13% of the Florida electorate to help him carry a state most analysts say President Trump must win to have any chance for a second term.

The person he interviewed was Tony Bobulinski, an experienced international businessman who found himself working with Hunter Biden, James Biden, and others on a deal between the Biden group and CEFC, a Chinese energy company with ties to the Communist government and the military. Bobulinski powerfully confirms that Joe Biden was deeply involved in the transaction, which had its beginnings when Joe was still Vice President.

Joe Biden called President Donald Trump “George” on Sunday, as if he were running against George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, or maybe George Washington, before catching himself. (Or being helped by someone outside the camera’s view.) He appeared to be a tired old man in need of help with his everyday life. Yet at both debates, though he made mistakes, he looked to be far more sentient, at times even sharp, in stark contrast to the doddering senior citizen we usually see.

The former New York senator won the popular vote but lost the Electoral College to Trump in 2016, and supports abolishing the institution. “I’m an elector in New York,” Clinton told SiriusXM’s “Signal Boost” in an interview.

You can call me Pollyannish, but I am beginning to believe I may have underestimated the silent Trump vote in my previous posts. This is why. I mentioned the 2020 Cato Institute poll before, which discusses the high percentage of conservatives who are afraid to express their political views. Something I failed to consider was: Nearly two‐​thirds of Latino Americans (65%) and White Americans (64%) and nearly half of African Americans (49%) have political views they are afraid to share. Why would 65% of Latin voters and 49% of Black voters be afraid to express their political views, especially if 70-90% of them, respectively, are voting for Biden?
