Omicron under the Christmas Tree (with Dr. Peter Hotez) 

 

Friends, 

Just in time for the holidays, Mother Nature has given us her biggest pandemic surprise.  

Yes folks, Omicron is everywhere – and that includes right under your Christmas tree, as you get ready to gather with your grandparents and your unvaccinated baby nieces or nephews.  

To help you navigate the holidays, know a little more about how to stay safe while living with Omicron, and learn about what can be done in the fight for vaccine equality across the world, I'm joined by returning Rumble guest Dr. Peter Hotez, Co-Director for the Texas Children's Hospital Center for Vaccine Development, and Dean for the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine.

Dr. Hotez & I talk about why we might be assuming a bit too much about Omicron being more "mild", whether healthcare workers and the vulnerable might need another booster, vaccine inequality across the world, and what the Biden administration  – and you & I – can do about it.

I hope you’ll give this a listen and share with friends and family.

Hoy, 78 años después de que mi padre se encontrara atrapado en una colina en el Pacífico Sur el día de Navidad de 1943, con un B-25 estadounidense ametrallando su unidad de marina, golpeando a todos ellos menos a mi papá.  

Un tipo diferente de historia de Navidad me gustaría para compartir contigo hoy.

Friends,

Today marks the second anniversary of Rumble with Michael Moore. Thank you for participating in and supporting my podcast! We’ve done 224 episodes and have had over 31 million downloads! 

On today’s Rumble, with the end of the year approaching & reports about inflation dominating the nightly news, Americans everywhere are anxious about what this means for them. 

Former US Secretary of Labor and progressive activist Robert Reich, however, thinks this is a major misdiagnosis: the problem isn’t inflation, but a lack of competition to stop big, monolithic corporations from jacking up prices. Robert joined me on the show today to talk about who is really responsible for your gas and milk prices skyrocketing, and why it’s more important than ever for the government to intervene in a moment when they’re trying to pull back. 

Plus, we discuss the rising labor movements in America and whether the “labor shortage” the media & big companies keep alleging is actually a general strike of workers across the country. 

I hope you’ll give this a listen and share with friends and family.

Gun and Done  

4 actions that will end the reign of gun terror in America.

After each mass shooting, after each school and church and shopping mall slaughter, a choir of voices screams out, “Why have we not done something to end gun violence in this country?” We ask this question as if we don’t know the answer, when in fact deep down we know exactly what we need to do. We just don’t want to say it out loud. We don’t want to be attacked. We are afraid of the anger of the gun owners.  

But we also know if we don’t stand up and say the four things I’m about to say, four things we know must be said and must become the law of the land, then we are doomed to suffer hundreds more of these mass murders. Who is willing to take the leap with me? 
I understand most of you don’t believe this cancer on our American soul can be expunged. You feel like it’s too late. There are too many guns out there. How will we ever get millions of gun nuts to cooperate?  

Well, maybe it’s not as hard as you think. The strange thing about humans is that they want to live. How did we get 55 million people to stop smoking? In bars! How did we get the nearly 300 million of us to wear a government-mandated seat belt nearly every day of our lives? 78 million Americans have let the government order their dogs to get shots and a goddamn license!   

Although we’re nowhere near the herd immunity we need to stop the pandemic  — and while we have untold millions calling the Coronavirus fake and the vaccine for it a plot to control us  —  how in the hell have we still succeeded in getting, to date, 201 million Americans fully vaccinated? So millions have agreed to get licenses for their dogs, for their bicycles, for cars, to cut hair, to burn leaves, even a friggin’ license so you can be hired to suck the shit out of someone’s toilet — BUT NO ONE HAS TO HAVE A LICENSE TO OWN AND FIRE DOZENS OF BULLETS OUT OF A GUN?! Who are we?

HIGH NOON FOR SENATOR MURPHY  

Episode 223; Rumble w/Michael Moore  

Dear Friends,  

On the day of the school shooting at Oxford High School last week, Senator Chris Murphy delivered a passionate speech on the Senate floor tying together the dishonest “sanctity of life” rhetoric from conservatives and the culture of guns, violence and death that is plaguing America. Senator Murphy has been a leading voice when it comes to gun violence in America ever since the Sandy Hook massacre on ​​December 14, 2012 in Newtown, Connecticut.  

So I asked him to join me on this week’s episode of Rumble with Michael Moore. We discussed how America’s founding violence against slaves made the disregard for human life part of our national ethos and how America’s modern day wars overseas continues to legitimize and promote violence both abroad and at home. Senator Murphy wrote a book last year on these subjects titled, “The Violence Inside Us: A Brief History of an Ongoing American Tragedy.”  

We also discussed the possibility and the limits of gun legislation, the power of visceral, uncensored images to change history, and the potential compromise on filibuster reform. I hope you’ll give this a listen and share with friends and family.

A MOTHER’S LOVE FOR SON, GUN AND COUNTRY 

LOL – I’m not mad. You have to learn not to get caught” 

In a nation born and built on violence, where there are now more guns in homes than there are people, a parent buys the son a gun as a gift. A Sig Sauer 9mm. 

But the son is disturbed. Nonetheless, she takes him to the gun range. She wants him to be a good shot. She wants to spend time with him. She loves these mom-and-son days shooting guns.  

Then he wakes up one December morning, walks into his mother’s bedroom and blows her head off. He has four of her guns including the Sig Sauer 9mm she gave him as a gift.  

That did not happen this past week in Oxford, Michigan (about 19 miles as the crow flies from where I went to high school). It’s what took place on December 14, 2012, when the 20-year-old Adam Lanza took those guns his mother gave him to use when they went to the gun range together in Newtown, Connecticut — and after he killed her, he took them to Sandy Hook Elementary School, where he murdered 20 first-graders and 6 teachers and staff before he killed himself. The only gun he didn’t use in this bloody massacre was the Sig Sauer 9mm

Thanksgiving Survival Guide   

Friends,

The corporate class, the politicians that they fund, and the media that they own are currently using rising prices to ram an inflation panic down our throats and prevent the Democrats from passing any legislation that will help the American people with their health care, child care, elderly care or education costs. 

They are falsely using economic trends to argue against popular and necessary policies that they always fight against because those policies might cut into their profits. 

To help me untangle the lies around the inflation panic and the so-called “labor shortage,” I asked the brilliant economist Stephanie Kelton to join me on Rumble with MichaelMoore

We also discussed why it is foolish for Democrats to place the fate of their agenda in the hands of the Congressional Budget Office, what’s really going on with the economy, and how capitalists attempt to keep a pool of workers chronically unemployed and underemployed and desperate for work. 

Stephanie is a Professor of Economics and Public Policy at Stony Brook University. She was chief economist for the U.S. Senate Budget Committee in 2015 was the senior economic adviser to Bernie Sanders’ 2016 and 2020 presidential campaigns and served on Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force to craft the progressive aspects of President Biden's agenda. 

She's the author of  "The Deficit Myth: Modern Monetary Theory and the Birth of the People's Economy," and has her own Substack newsletter called, “The Lens by Stephanie Kelton.” I hope you’ll give this a listen and share it with whoever needs to hear it
