    “If you’d told me six months ago that the governor of Illinois would declare churches ‘nonessential’ and shut them down, while liquor stores are ‘essential’ and open, I’d have asked what blend of weed you were smoking,” Peter Breen of the Thomas More Society told me. The ministry serves the homeless. State and local social welfare agencies refer ex-convicts and others in dire circumstances to the ministry. The Jesus House had been offering food and clothing and church services indoors. But with coronavirus, and wanting to maintain proper social distancing, Brown took his operation to a private outdoor parking lot....

    In fact, we’re talking about charging these up at night, so there won’t be any solar at that time. So we’re down to wind, and very often at night, the wind does fall off. GM’s Zimmerman then says: I don’t think coal is bad. It’s got lovely BTUs. It’s got lovely energy value. ...Similarly, the film explains that the Koch Brothers build the mirrors used in solar panels. Josh Fox, the director of Gasland, led a campaign to have the film taken down and for Michael Moore to issue an apology:

    Former Vice President and Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden was confronted by protesters who called him a “pervert,” “Quid Pro Joe” and told him to “stop touching kids” at a campaign stop in New Hampshire on Sunday. Biden is infamously inappropriate with women and children in photographs and recently told a story about how he likes when children sit on his lap.

    Professor blames Trump and racism for black women’s overweight issues A Rutgers University professor linked President Trump's policies and racism in the U.S. to African American women's obesity issues during an appearance on "Black Women OWN the Conversation” on the Oprah Winfrey Network. The story: Brittney Cooper, a gender studies professor, argued that the lack of access to necessary health care and the stress black women experience because of discrimination affects their metabolism and enhances the struggles they face when trying to lose weight. “I hate when people talk about Black women being obese. I hate it because it becomes...

    Meghan McCain ripped into President Donald Trump on Thursday for pulling U.S. troops out of Northern Syria to allow Turkish forces to attack the America-allied Kurds. The View kicked things off by discussing Trump insulting the Kurds while they face attacks from the Turkish military. Trump’s remarks drew a rebuke from the panel, with Joy Behar remarking that “draft evasion runs in the family.” McCain cited reporting of Fox News correspondent Jennifer Griffin, who heard from a U.S. Special Forces soldier who said he was “ashamed” by what’s happening in Syria. McCain said she was “happy” with the bipartisan outrage...

    U.S. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler on Monday subpoenaed former White House counsel Don McGahn to testify before the panel in its investigation of possible obstruction of justice by President Donald Trump. In a statement, Nadler said the committee had asked for documents from McGahn by May 7 and for him to testify on May 21. Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report said Trump asked McGahn to fire Mueller. “Mr. McGahn is a critical witness to many of the alleged instances of obstruction of justice and other misconduct described in the Mueller report,” Nadler said. An attorney for McGahn was...

    Michael Moore appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher and urged fellow liberals not to give up hope on the inevitable confirmation of President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee. 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. “We’ve got to hold the Democratic seats we...

    ORLANDO, Fla. - A woman said she felt fat-shamed when she was unable to ride Skull Island: Reign of Kong at Universal's Islands of Adventure. Angel Morales said she asked workers if she could ride the ride bench with one fewer person so that she wouldn't make anyone sitting beside her feel uncomfortable. Morales said she felt humiliated when employees declined her request. The theme park doesn't have weight restrictions, so Morales said she didn't know she couldn't go on the ride until she was about to board it. Morales said she bought annual passes to the park last year...

    President Trump admitted he couldn’t help himself but take a shot at filmmaker Michael Moore’s Broadway show, which closed last week. Moore’s one-man show "The Terms of My Surrender" essentially was an opportunity for the Michigan documentarian to take shots at Trump on a nightly basis. It closed after its final performance on Oct. 22. Trump was delighted at its ending. “While not at all presidential I must point out that the Sloppy Michael Moore Show on Broadway was a TOTAL BOMB and was forced to close. Sad!” Trump tweeted. " While not at all presidential I must point out...

    No more backwards hats for Barack Obama. The former president and wife Michelle Obama returned home to their new $4.3 million home in Washington, D.C. on Thursday night after enjoying a post-presidency vacation in Palm Springs and the British Virgin Islands. The former first couple, who spent the past 10 days on Virgin billionaire Richard Branson’s private island, flew out from Tortuga island by helicopter on Thursday before boarding Branson’s jet headed for Washington. Later, their motorcade was seen pulling up to their nine-bedroom mansion in Washington’s Kalorama neighborhood, where a neighbor had posted a welcome home sign, according to...

    While speaking at the Women's March in Washington, D.C. this morning, liberal documentary filmmaker Michael Moore addressed the crowd and gave them some advice for what they should do when it comes to the Democratic Party in the future. "We have to take over the Democratic Party," Moore exclaimed. [Snip] The Roger and Me auteur railed against the "old guard" of the Democratic Party and said that the party needed more people of color and those in the LGBT community to run for office and take positions of leadership.

    Donald Trump ripped Rosie O’Donnell during the first Republican presidential debate in 2015, saying that she was the only woman about whom he had ever made disparaging comments. Now, with less than 10 days until Trump takes the oath of office, O’Donnell says that she’d support “martial law” in order to delay his inauguration. “FULLY SUPPORT IMPOSING MARTIAL LAW – DELAYING THE INAUGURATION – UNTIL TRUMP IS ‘CLEARED’ OF ALL CHARGES,” O’Donnell wrote in response to a Twitter user who suggested the U.S. military take control of the government until the president-elect can prove he has no financial ties to...

    Come this time of year, it’s usually the holidays that lead to overeating. But now another event has some people packing on the pounds: the election of Donald Trump. From Massachusetts General Hospital’s Weight Center, to a pilates studio in Belmont, to a South End bakery, some Hillary Clinton supporters have taken to stress eating, bigly. “The response is similar to what you see after a divorce or a death in the family,” said Fatima Cody Stanford, an obesity-medicine physician at MGH’s Weight Center. “Numb” and “fearful” patients are backsliding into comfort food, she said, adding that it’s too early...

Speaking with CNN's Don Lemon Thursday night, Moore showed footage he took on his phone while marching with protesters of Trump's win in New York City, and also touched on the low voter turnout in this year's election.

    Earlier this week, veteran documentarian Michael Moore delivered his own October Surprise. The Oscar-winning documentarian and legendary muckraker suddenly announced the release of a previously unannounced project: Michael Moore in TrumpLand, a new film culled from two one-man shows the director performed earlier this month in the predominantly Republican town of Wilmington, Ohio. Shot, edited and released in less than two weeks, the movie largely avoids haranguing the Republican presidential nominee, with Moore devoting most of the film to Clinton's virtues alongside polemics about the decline of the "angry white male" and need for increased gun control regulations. (The film...
