    FLINT, MI ó An artist/protester has been arrested after taking down the Confederate flag in South Carolina, and Flint-area filmmaker Michael Moore has offered to pay for her bail and legal fees. According to NBC News, two activists were arrested Saturday morning after one removed the Confederate flag from a pole outside South Carolina's Statehouse in Columbia. Reports say Brittany Ann Byuarium Newsome, of Raleigh, N.C., climbed the pole around 6:15 a.m. and unhooked the flag, according to a statement by the South Carolina Department of Public Safety Bureau of Protective Services.

    DETROIT (WXYZ) - Detroit and Michigan State Police are investigating after finding a 500 pound pig trapped inside the basement of a Detroit home. According to Assistant Police Chief Steve Dolunt, an anonymous tip brought investigators to a house in the 10400 block of Orangelawn. They found the pig in a basement standing in feces.

    FLINT, MI -- What started as a local attorney's way to draw attention to an unusual mayor's election has turned into an international phenomenon as Giggles the Pig makes headlines around the globe. News organizations from Russia and the Netherlands have picked up the story of the small porcine from Flint whose owner is attempting to enter into the mayor's race. Even CNN ran a story Friday, May 8, about Giggles' attempt to take on the Vehicle City's political establishment.

    The episode could have been a chapter from the thriller written by former Senator Bob Graham of Florida about a shadowy Saudi role in the Sept. 11 attacks. A top F.B.I. official unexpectedly arranges a meeting at Dulles International Airport outside Washington with Mr. Graham, the former chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, after he has pressed for information on a bureau terrorism inquiry. Mr. Graham, a Democrat, is then hustled off to a clandestine location, where he hopes for a breakthrough in his long pursuit of ties between leading Saudis and the Sept. 11 hijackers.

    September 6, 2004 -- WASHINGTON ó The long knives are out for Democrat John Kerry's campaign manager, Mary Beth Cahill, as infighting rages while his slumping campaign struggles to come back against President Bush. "You'd think they could find a man to throw overboard one of these days," zinged Republican strategist Mary Matalin, a former aide to Vice President Dick Cheney on NBC's "Meet the Press." She said Democrats blamed 1988 loser Michael Dukakis' stumbles on campaign manager Susan Estrich and Al Gore's 2000 fumbles on campaign chief Donna Brazile, and "now they're trying to blame poor Mary Beth Cahill"...

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 3/29/2015 | Jarrett Skorup
    In 2011, left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore sat on the advisory council for the Michigan Film Office. The office is in charge of determining what productions will receive the hundreds of millions of dollars that have been sent from state taxpayers to mostly out-of-state moviemakers since 2008. So perhaps it should not be surprising to learn that Moore himself Ė with a reported personal net worth of $50 million Ė was able to grab taxpayer money to cover some of the costs for his 2009 film ďCapitalism: A Love StoryĒ (which criticized the well-connected for taking taxpayer money).

    Left-leaning documentary filmmaker Michael Moore has come under fire from conservatives over his criticism of "American Sniper," but it turns out his cold war with the biopic's director, Clint Eastwood, started ten years earlier. Moore took to Facebook to confirm a report on Salon that Eastwood had threatened to shoot him during the 2005 National Board of Review dinner. Moore had been in attendance to receive an award for his scathing indictment of the Bush administration, "Fahrenheit 9/11," while Eastwood was being honored for "Million Dollar Baby."

    As I may have had occasion to mention before, movies go as naturally together with paranoia as they do with voyeurism. Possibly with other mental disorders as well, but we can confine ourselves to these two for the moment. Sufferers from both imagine that they see things most people do not see, and the thrill of that exclusive view is what makes it so compelling. The moving picture camera flatters that sense of exclusivity. Everything that it shows us, it has sought out and separated from the torrent of visual experience available to it, a tiny nugget of presumed significance...

    First poor mikey's deceiptful movie failed to deliver the presidency to John Kerry. Then in his sad attempt at redemption, his call to arms for Michigan St. as retribution on Ohio failed as Ohio St. beat Michigan St. 32-19. So, keep it coming Mikey. The more you say, the more my teams win. Thanks big guy! I owe you some twinkies or something!

    The funniest thing I just saw in my local bookstore. When looking for a conservative book, I stumbled onto the grossly overweight, unshaven, meglomaniac Micheal Moore's book and it's cover of "Dude, Where's my country." I know this is tough but look closely at the cover of Moore's book. It has a heavily doctored or photo doubled picture of a much slimmer Moore. The body is A LOT thinner than the real author's by 100+ pounds. The photo features Mr. Moore's face. It's seems that Mr. Moore has some major issues with his grossly overweight bulk on his book covers....

    Las Vegas casino boots singer Linda Ronstadt after performance LAS VEGAS - Singer Linda Ronstadt not only got booed, she got the boot after lauding filmmaker Michael Moore and his new movie, Fahrenheit 9/11 during a performance at the Aladdin hotel-casino. Before singing "Desperado" for an encore Saturday night, the 58-year-old rocker called Moore a "great American patriot" and "someone who is spreading the truth." She also encouraged everybody to see the documentary about President Bush. Ronstadt's comments drew loud boos and some of the 4,500 people in attendance stormed out of the theater. People also tore down concert posters...

    Hi True With Tomas | 30 Jan 04 | Tomas Ojeda
    Today Micheal Moore went to speak in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The event was held at the Fountain Street Church. ( In reality it is a sanctuary for druggies, anti- war protesters, America haters etc.) I arrived and there was a crowd gathered around the Osama of the Left. As I approached the target from the high ground, I got flashbacks from my Marine Corp days. Gotta love that high ground, (more about that later). I was armed with not one but two large American Flags. Combat boots for stomping, hard plastic hand wraps for skull collapsing, and other assorted Bushido...

    City Journal Michael Moore, Humbug Kay S. Hymowitz Summer 2003 Recently a wealthy Chicago couple named Drobney announced their plan to bankroll a left-wing talk radio station. They neednít bother: the Left already has a multimedia staróand even without a radio station, heís bigger than Rush, has more fans than OíReilly, and sells books faster than Coulter. Followers plead with this ďfolk hero for the American peopleĒ to run for president. Reviewers compare him to Twain, Voltaire, and Swift. Unlike Rush and company, the appeal of this blue-collar megastar extends far beyond the hoi polloi. Hollywood and Manhattan agents wave...

    Read rumors of this a few days ago, now we have confirmation and a few new details. Quote from Moore: ďIím making a film called Fahrenheit 911, The Temperature at Which Freedom Burns. Itíll be about how Bush is using 9/11 and those 3,000 lost lives as an excuse to move along his own conservative agenda.Ē The documentary "will be about the ties between the BUSH family and the BIN LADEN family... about the changes in America since 9-11..."

    "Bowling for Columbine" Website ^ | Michael Moore (presumably)
    In Fort Gibson, Oklahoma on December 7, 1999 a 13-year-old boy shot four classmates at school with his fatherĀÁs handgun. His father had purchased the gun six years earlier at Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart had stopped stocking handguns in its stores in 1993, but not before the boy's father had purchased the gun that would bring tragedy six years later. Wal-Mart is now the world's largest corporation. With annual sales of $218 billion, Wal-Mart rivals the gross domestic product of the world's 22nd largest economy, Austria. Wal-Mart is the world's largest overall retailer, and sells more groceries, toys, and jewelry than any...
