    Is he as big as Michael Moore, and do people take Michael Moore all that seriously compared to regular commentators?

    Funny, you'd think they'd teach you in soldier school when to run from a fight.

    Oddly, no.

    That said, I work for the Canadian Army, not the French.

    For operational reasons, I actually cannot answer that question.

    He's different than Michael moore, it's not really the best comparison despite both having made successful documentaries.

    Regardless, he's a very significant right wing commentator in the US. You look pretty silly here with insisting to argue a point from pure ignorance

    Who would be a good comparable on the left in your opinion then?

    I felt I was being generous comparing him to Moore.

    His lack of knowledge about how much money documentaries usually make is even sillier.

    I'm more questioning the reach and impact of these documentaries.

    Maybe it's because I don't engulf myself in right wing propaganda, I don't see these having anywhere close to the impact Fahrenheit 9-11 had. Something meaty for the fringes, obviously ignored by the masses.

    As such, when someone as obscure as him, and lets be clear, you ask the average american to name 3 political commentators and his name probably never comes up, post something stupid on twitter, and it's immediately debunked, how is this news?

    Dumb conservative is dumb on twitter, more at 11?

    He's nowhere near as infuential as Michael Moore, but these documentaries made a lot of money as far as documentaries go.

    It's the hypocrisy mixed with outright fabrications that is extremely frustrating. That and the fact that they pull this shit so often.

    Here's the thing.

    If Michael Moore said something stupid on twitter, I would immediately say the same thing. Something along the lines of, hey, calm down, its Michael Moore, let's not take him seriously. And he's Michael Moore. This guy wishes he was Michael Moore.

    Avi Lewis or Ezra Levant here in canada, same thing. They tweet some nonsense, immediately debunked. To me, it reveals nothing more than nutjobs have access to twitter.

    So when this Dsouza character posts dumb shit, its not news, it just shows that there are dumb people on twitter. These aren't journalists, these aren't policy makers, these aren't people that any self respecting person takes seriously nomatter how much airtime they get, why the hell is it news when they post stupid shit on twitter?

    I dunno, I guess I'm not as political as zeke and as such I am immune to insignificant people talking out of their asses. Actually, not true. I remember callijg zeke out for saying that foxnews.com didn't have the Flynn plea deal on its site, and zeke is very insignificant

    I guess the question is why you consider this to be "news", it's not on the front page of CNN. It was a quick throwaway post by Zeke. I don't think he even commented on it. If you don't find it interesting, scroll past it and move on.

    Rex Tillerson may be gone, but he hasn't forgotten.

    Speaking to soon-to-be graduates of the Virginia Military Institute on Wednesday, Tillerson dropped this truth bomb:

    "If our leaders seek to conceal the truth, or we as people become accepting of alternative realities that are no longer grounded in facts, then we as American citizens are on a pathway to relinquishing our freedom."
    “When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty.”

    Rudy is straight up bonkers

    @FoxNews

    Rudy Giuliani on Russia investigation: "When I ran against [Democrats] they were looking for dirt on me every day, I mean, that's what you do...Nothing illegal about that. And even if it comes from a Russian or a German or an American, it doesn't matter."

    Giuliani said Mueller appeared displeased when the deputy spoke up. He compared the special counsel’s reaction to that of Vito Corleone, the mob boss that Marlon Brando played in the movie “The Godfather.”

    “He didn’t seem to want to give the answer,” Giuliani said. “It reminded me of that scene in ‘The Godfather,’ with Sonny and the Godfather, where he said, ‘Oh, you’re going to take care of us? We can take care of ourselves.’ One of his assistants broke in and said, ‘Well of course, we’re bound by Justice Department policies.’ Mueller looked at him like, ‘Don’t interrupt me.’ ”

    Warning: Do not mix Giuliani interviews with indica. It’s too trippy.
