    Michael Moore Honors Treasonous Jane Fonda For 'Lifetime Achievement'

    There was something ideologically appropriate about the 81-year-old Jane Fonda receiving a lifetime achievement award from Michael Moore at his recent film festival. They have plenty in common. Both are limousine leftists who praise vicious communist regimes like Hugo Chavez's. Both hate capitalism but love its creature comforts. But there the comparisons end.

    An Ex U.S. Attorney Went on Fox News to Explain Why Trump and Giuliani Often Discredit Robert Mueller, And He's Spot On

    Former United States Attorney Michael Moore took to Fox News on Monday, criticizing Former New York City Mayor and current head lawyer of President Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani.

Moore said that Mueller may take some hits in the court of public opinion due to his silence (per Justice Department protocol) against Trump's accusations, but that ultimately, the Trump administration would most likely lose all together.

    New LAPD chief collected $1.27M payout before being rehired: report

    Michael Moore, the new chief of the Los Angeles Police Department, collected a one-time retirement payment of $1.27 million after he retired for a few weeks before being rehired for the same role and pay, The Los Angeles Times reported on Sunday.
