Not a cult: Michael Moore’s tree topper is Ruth Bader Ginsburg

From Fat Man’s twitter timeline: “My Christmas Tree Topper this year. Better than an angel or the star over Bethlehem. A nation of millions stand with you…”

He also delivered some chicken noodle soup to the SCOTUS judge and streamed it live on Facebook, of course. Everyone needs to see what a caring person he is!

Liberalism is a mental disorder.

Waaaaah: Michael Moore claims his ex-wife is trying to smear him

Sorry, Fat Man. Your fellow demorats have set the new rule of  “#believeallwomen.”

From NY Post: Documentarian Michael Moore says his ex-wife’s lawsuit against him is a malicious end-run around a sealing order in their ongoing Michigan arbitration case filed to “smear” Moore in the press, according to new court documents.

Kathleen Glynn, who is also a filmmaker and has worked on many projects with Moore, divorced him in 2014 after a 23-year marriage.

Earlier this month Glynn filed a lawsuit against Moore in Manhattan Supreme Court claiming that he was stiffing her on profits from their joint movie projects.

Moore’s lawyer, Kenneth Warner, wrote in court papers filed Friday that Glynn sued in order to publicize information that would have remained sealed and confidential if their case had stayed in the Michigan court.

It was an attempt to “smear [Moore] in the press with her false allegations,” Warner said, scting The Post’s exclusive coverage of the lawsuit.

The lawsuit is “an act of extreme disrespect to the Michigan Circuit Court,” the court documents say, noting that decisions in the New York case could conflict with progress in the ongoing Michigan case, Warner said.

She “gratuitously included highly personal and confidential information in her petition in an apparent effort to increase public exposure and try to embarrass [Moore],” Warner wrote.

The fact that the suit revealed Moore’s negative income reportings to the IRS in 2014 and 2016 served “no legitimate purpose,” the court papers say.

The pair collaborated on some of Moore’s most famous documentaries, such as “Bowling for Columbine” about the Columbine high school massacre and “Fahrenheit 9/11.”

Separately, Moore released a documentary in September called “Fahrenheit 11/9.”

Moore claims in the court papers that Glynn maliciously “filed on September 6, 2018, the day of the world premiere of [Moore’s] most recent film, Fahrenheit 11/9,” where it opened at Toronto Film Festival, according to the court documents. A lawyer for Glynn declined to comment.

The first court date in the case is set for Oct. 4, but it is unclear if Moore and Glynn will be present.

Fat Boy Michael Moore’s anti-Trump movie bombs at box office

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

From Inquisitr: Michael Moore’s latest documentary, Fahrenheit 11/9, is winning rave reviews but is tanking at the box office, Forbes is reporting.

Styled as a sort-of sequel to Moore’s groundbreaking 2004 documentary Fahrenheit 9/11, which explores the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks and, specifically, the George W. Bush administration and the Iraq War, Fahrenheit 11/9 opened on under 1,000 screens nationwide (generally typical for documentaries). All told, the movie brought in $1.051 million on Friday, and Forbes writer Scott Mendelson expects it to close out the weekend with around $3 million in ticket sales. That works out to a per-screen average of under $2,000 – nothing short of dismal.

To be fair, says Mendelson, documentaries aren’t generally geared for wide release and boffo box office (excluding Disney nature documentaries, that is). Rather, they’re intended mostly for the on-demand and home-viewing market, once their theatrical run has ended.

Basically, says Mendelson, nobody wants to pay theater prices to see a two-hour-plus movie about a wide variety of depressing topics- the “horrors of the day,” as he calls it.

In the Fahrenheit 11/9, Moore takes aim at Trump and his administration, repeating allegations that Trump refused to rent to black people; that he called for the execution of the Central Park Five (a group of minority youths accused of raping a white woman); Trump’s “birtherism” (that is, his repeated claims that Barack Obama wasn’t born in the United States); and a host of other controversies surrounding the 45th president.

Stingy, fat man: Michael Moore’s ex-wife claims he’s stiffing her of movie profits

Fat man who rallies against capitalism refusing to pay his fair share of capitalist profits to his ex-wife. Shocker, not.

From Page Six: Documentarian Kathleen Glynn is cranking up the Fahrenheit on her fellow filmmaker-ex husband Michael Moore, hauling him to court for allegedly stiffing her on profits from their movie projects.

Glynn and the “Fahrenheit 9/11” director split in 2014 after 23 years of marriage, and an even longer business partnership.

“She was the driving force in the making of many of [his] films and other ventures in which Mr. Moore was the featured personality, dating back to their first big success, ‘Roger and Me’ (1989),” Glynn’s attorney Bonnie Rabin says in the new Manhattan Supreme Court suit.

Glynn also produced the Academy Award-winning “Bowling for Columbine” about the Columbine High School massacre and “Fahrenheit 9/11” — “the highest-grossing documentary film of all time.”

The suit claims Moore has walked away from a binding arbitration that was required to “flesh out the terms of an important provision in their property settlement.”

Glynn claims Moore’s trying to obtain all the benefits of their 2014 settlement in which she “signed over essentially all of her interest in the fruits of the parties’ joint efforts as film-makers … in exchange for a promise of future revenue-sharing by” Moore.

He was supposed to pay her 4 percent of total revenue from his creative works — but he gave her just $541 in 2014, the suit says. That means he would have pulled in just $13,525 during a seven-month period, according to court papers.

And Glynn’s not buying the amount of income Moore reported to the IRS — negative $350,862 in 2014 and negative $221,025 in 2016.

Moore and his lawyer did not immediately return messages seeking comment.

Michael Moore wonders if a Broadway show can take down Trump

Michael Moore: Infected with Trump Derangement Syndrome


Um, no.
From Playbill: Academy Award-winning filmmaker and bestselling author Michael Moore is set to make his theatrical debut with The Terms of My Surrender, a subversive new solo play and cross-examination of America’s political climate, that will take aim at the current administration. The show will open on Broadway this summer with direction by Tony winner Michael Mayer.
The Terms of My Surrender is set to begin a limited 12-week engagement July 28 at the Belasco Theatre, ahead of an August 10 opening.
“I think what the world needs right now is Michael Moore standing on a Broadway stage sharing his hilarious stories and incendiary political perspective, creating the kind of dialogue that can only happen in the theatre,” says Mayer in a press statement.
The Terms of My Surrender will be performed by Moore live each night, and will feature his signature wry, satirical humor. The show will pose the question: “Can a Broadway show take down a sitting President?”

More libtard butthurt: Michael Moore calls for protesters to 'disrupt' Trump's inauguration

Moore should find a cure for his disorder. Otherwise it’s going to be a long four years for him.
michael moore
From Fox News: Michael Moore — who predicted Donald Trump would win the presidency months before his surprise victory — is now encouraging people to protest the President-elect’s upcoming inauguration.
“Disrupt the Inauguration. The Majority have spoken – by nearly 2.7 million votes &counting! Silence is not an option,” Moore tweeted Wednesday.
The liberal filmmaker shared a link to the website for DisruptJ20, a campaign for “a bold mobilization against the inauguration of Donald Trump on January 20, 2017.”
The website states, “We call on all people of good conscience to join in disrupting the ceremonies. If Trump is to be inaugurated at all, let it happen behind closed doors, showing the true face of the security state Trump will preside over. It must be made clear to the whole world that the vast majority of people in the United States do not support his presidency or consent to his rule.
butthurt
DisruptJ20 is planning D.C.-based protests on the day of Trump’s inauguration, but also asks people to protest on “the streets wherever you are.”
The social justice organization also calls for worldwide action. “If you are living outside the US, you can take action at US embassies, borders, or other symbols of neocolonial power. Our allegiance is not to ‘making America great again,’ but to all of humanity and the planet. #DisruptJ20.”

Trump's election will be the biggest F-you in history

If we go by most of the MSM/corporate polls, Hillary Clinton will win on November 8.
But there are dissenting voices. Among them is Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams, who’s still predicting a 98% chance of not just a Trump win, but a landslide. Interestingly, the dissenters also include a flaming leftist — docu-maker Michael Moore.
Moore is loathsome, but I don’t think anyone has captured or articulated the reasons why so many Americans resonate to Trump’s anti-globalism as well as Moore.
Below is an excerpt from a recent speech Moore delivered, followed by my transcription:

“I know a lot of people in Michigan that are planning to vote for Trump…. They don’t necessarily like him that much and they don’t necessarily agree with him. They’re not racists and rednecks certainly; they’re actually pretty decent people. And so I wanted to, after talking to a number of them, I wanted to write this.
Donald Trump came to the Detroit Economic Club and stood there in front of the Ford Motor executives and said, ‘If you close these factories you’re planning to do in Detroit and build them in Mexico, [when I’m President] I’m going to put a 35% tariff on those cars when you send them back and nobody’s gonna buy them.’
It was an amazing thing to see. No politician, Republican or Democrat, had ever said anything like that to these executives, and it was music to the ears of people in Michigan and Ohio and Pennsylvania, in Wisconsin, the Brexit states. You live here in Ohio, you know what I’m talking about.
Whether Trump means it or not is kind of irrelevant because he’s saying the things to people who are hurting. That’s why every beaten-down, nameless, forgotten working stiff — what used to be part of what was called the middle class — loves Trump. He is the human Molotov cocktail that they’ve been waiting for, the human hand grenade that they can legally throw into the system that stole their lives from them. And on November 8th, Election Day, although they lost their jobs, although they’ve been foreclosed on by the bank, next came the divorce, and now the wife and kids are gone, the car’s been repo’ed, they haven’t had a real vacation in years, they’re stuck with the shitty Obamacare plan when you can’t even get a fucking [inaudible]. They’ve essentially lost everything they had, except one thing. The one thing that doesn’t cost them a cent and is guaranteed to them by the American Constitution — the right to vote.
They might be penniless, they might be homeless, they might be fucked over and fucked up. It doesn’t matter because it’s equalized on that day. A millionaire has the same number of votes as the person without a job — one. And there’s more of the former middle class than there are in the millionaire class.
So on November 8th, the dispossessed will walk into the voting booth, be handed a ballot, close the curtain and take that lever or felt pen or touchscreen and put a big fucking X in the box by the name of the man who is threatening to upend and overturn the very system that has ruined their lives: Donald J. Trump.
They see that the elites who ruined their lives hate Trump. Corporate America hates Trump. Wall Street hates Trump. The career politicians hate Trump. The media hates Trump, after they loved him and created him and now hate him. Thank you, media.
The enemy of my enemy is who I’m voting for on November 8. Yes, on November 8, you, Joe Blow, Steve Blow, Bob Blow, Billy Blow, Billy Bob Blow — all the Blows get to blow up the whole goddamn system because it’s your right. Trump’s election is going to be the biggest fuck-you ever recorded in human history, and it will feel good.”

Perversely, after articulately so beautifully the profound alienation of so many Americans and why Trump speaks for them, Michael Moore then proceeded to make a whole-hog defense and endorsement of Hillary Clinton.
Here’s a screenshot from a video showing “Jabba the Hut” Michael Moore making the speech you heard and read above.

What if Trump loses?
Below are excerpts from a powerful essay, “The Elite ‘Have No Idea’ — Society is Near the Breaking Point,” written by a guy who calls himself Chindit13 for ZeroHedge:

“What I find most surprising today is that the insiders and the elite have no idea what is percolating just beneath the surface.  Okay, maybe their arrogance actually produces its own fog, so it should not come as a surprise that they are blinded. They do not look at the calendar, which, if one really looks, says ‘1788’ on it.  Something is close.  Very close.  Society is near the breaking point.
My own experience is that Hillary’s so-called Deplorables are actually the most reserved, most polite, and most honest demographic in the country. They are more informed, more self-reliant, and among other things, better armed.  Regarding their arms, they are incredibly responsible, and not the source of the violence for which the implement, and not the person, is too often blamed.  The Deplorables have the longest fuse.  It is, however, a fuse. […]
The Deplorables, however, are not possessed of infinite patience. Like a capacitor, there is a charge building, and at some point it will be released into the circuitry of society.
The media and other insiders believe themselves to be immune.  That thought no doubt results from being immersed inside a cocoon where dissonant voices are not allowed.  When the levee breaks, or the capacitor releases its charge, they are going to be gob smacked.
Precious few of them are anywhere near as immune as they believe themselves to be.  Additionally, what they might think, or hope, is their support, their security, their safe space, doesn’t really exist.
Most of society’s guardians, whether they are law enforcement or military, are card-carrying members of the Deplorables.
France was similarly constructed in the late 1780s.  The elite were isolated only in thought, not in reality.  Their protection was of a Potemkin Village nature: not actually there, but merely a facade that gave them false comfort.
They paid dearly for their arrogance and ignorance.
History may not repeat, but it does rhyme.  The calendar really does seem to say 1788, so 1789—and 1792–are not as far off as some would like to believe.
This is not a call to arms, but it is a call to reality.  Ignore it at your own peril.
Some may see these words as a threat.  They are not.  They are, however, a warning, and a warning from someone who is a student of history.
Every society eventually reaches a breaking point.  Ours is nearly there.  Some of those who might feel threatened, the so-called elite and insiders, think that they can buy protection as easily as they can buy a Gulfstream.  How naïve!  Who are the private security contractors?  Who are the various SOGs?  Like law enforcement and the rest of the military, they are the Deplorables.  The Deplorables will take your money, but you will not take their lives.  Better said, they won’t give up their lives for you or your family.  The security you believe you have purchased is an illusion.  Make that delusion.  Best to get that out front here and now.
Some might think this is all Trump’s fault.  Again, that shows a degree of ignorance and naïveté which characterizes the elite.  Trump is a symptom, not a cause.  He might even be a salve, as the changes he could bring might defuse some of the current anger.
On the other hand, Hillary is a lit match in a room of dynamite.  She, like many of the self-important, thinks her very existence is a favor to the rest of us.  She epitomizes the absolute worst of what America has become.  Above the law, wealthy not through accomplishment, but through influence peddling only, and a bull in a china shop in terms of her effect on both the country and the world—and I apologize to bulls for that analogy.  The world is more unstable because of her.
America is less safe because of her.  Russia and the US—the two largest nuclear powers—are more at odds because of her.  With her in power, we will reach the breaking point at home and internationally, perhaps leading to ‘accidental’ nuclear war, as the heightened rhetoric impacts clear thinking.  Society is more stratified because of her.  Race relations have deteriorated because of her (and Obama).
There are few current ills in society and in geopolitics that cannot be laid at her feet, at least to some extent.  The Great Deceiver to many, who exhibits an astonishing aversion to truth telling, is enough to make even an agnostic wonder if the anti-Christ hasn’t finally arrived for its three and a half years of rule.
A recently hacked email of John Podesta finds him saying ‘she (Hillary) has begun to hate everyday Americans’.  No doubt the same feelings were voiced by [Romania dictator] Nicolas Ceaucescu.  It turned out the feeling was mutual. […]
Elect Hillary, and continue with business as usual, and it is likely this warning will become an epitaph for the America we know.  Society may collapse regardless, because the rot is already very great, but she will hasten the day of reckoning. […]”

Michael Moore calls all Donald Trump supporters 'legal terrorists'

response to Michael Moore
From Daily Mail: Donald Trump supporters are furious at Michael Moore for branding them ‘legal terrorists’.
The filmmaker used the term in an interview with Rolling Stone published Friday, saying that Trump would ‘blow up the system’ and his voters would ‘participate in the detonation’.
Moore also compared Trump to a pedophile, saying voters had to protect America from the GOP nominee the way children should be protected from molesters.
His movie ‘Michael Moore In Trumpland’, which Moore has called his October surprise, came out earlier this week after just 11 days of development.
Moore, once a fervent Bernie Sanders supporter who has now endorsed Hillary Clinton, told the LA Times he hoped the film would convince ‘the depressed Hillary voter’ to cast a ballot on November 8.
‘Michael Moore In Trumpland’ is based on a one-man show that Moore performed earlier this month in Wilmington, Ohio. The show revolves mostly around Moore’s support of Clinton – but he denied having written it in the hopes of converting devoted Trump supporters.
‘I did not want the racists or the crazies in there or we would have never gotten the show done,’ he told Rolling Stone. Instead, Moore said, he wanted to strike a chord with voters who typically support Democrats but where thinking of casting their ballot for Trump.
‘I want them to think about the damage they could do by being a legal terrorist on November 8th,’ Moore said. Rolling Stone asked if the words ‘legal terrorist referred to any Trump voter or to anyone in particular. Moore replied: ‘Any.’
‘Legally, you have a right to vote on November 8th. You can go in there and even though you’re not necessarily in favor of Trump and you don’t like him that much and you know he’s a little crazy, you also know he’s going to blow up the system,’ Moore added.
‘The system that took your job and house away from you. You get to get back at the system now and blow it up and this is the only day you can do it legally.  He’s told everybody that’s what he’s going to do. He’s the outsider who is going to ride into town and blow up the old way.’
‘So you, as a voter, get to participate in the detonation. He’s going to get a lot of votes from people who actually just want to sit back and watch the thing blow up.

What's really about to blow up...

What’s really about to blow up…


Moore later called the GOP nominee a ‘sociopath’ and said Trump had a mental illness – to the point where Moore didn’t feel comfortable ‘picking on’ Trump anymore and wanted him to get help. 
‘At the same time, you have to protect the population from him like you do with a pedophile,’ Moore said. ‘A pedophile doesn’t need to be in prison; they’re sick. They have to be separated from us so they don’t hurt children. But you have to treat it that way.’
Furious Trump voters blasted Moore’s comments on Twitter. One called Moore a ‘pathetic thing’, another accused him of being ‘terrified’, and a third tweeted a story about Moore with the words ‘IDIOT ALERT’.
User Merle Patterson wondered: ‘So, Americans have #rightofchoice, unless it’s #Trump?’ Another Twitter user, Dan Foster, wrote: ‘like Michael Moore would know anything about patriotism or reality.’ Real estate broker Greg Bennett compared Moore to a ‘butt itch’, adding: ‘it’s there but you can’t scratch it, just annoying.’
Brunell Donald-Kyei, a Trump supporter and the vice-chair of the national diversity coalition for Trump, blasted Moore’s comments on Fox News, accusing ‘anyone that votes for Hillary Clinton’ of ‘aiding and abetting a felon’.
