Coming Soon: Moore Movies

Posted in Press Release on May 17th, 2010 by admin – Comments Off

Michael Moore seems to have gotten too big for the less than average Hollywood movie screen. His supposed “politically humorous” movie making has been a less than interesting effort at campaign promotions but now certainly lucrative and far more interesting for those with campaign budgets that value victory. Big Mike has found a lesser method of financing a movie than Hollywood Guild dominated budgets. Moore’s nuanced method has proved lucrative enough to cause even Bill Maher, a less than equal film maker to create films at even less expense. Worse it appears that the Supreme Court’s recent failure to defend any future effort to limit the amount of campaign contributions donated by corporate entities will now make even more of these Moore Movies possible. With that boost Big Mike has suddenly gotten bigger.

Thanks to big Mike’s increasing big budget productions, John McCain and Russ Feingold have been kissed off like two mafia punks waiting to be wacked by history. After all of the howling has been forgotten the art of “swift boating” gets validated and given a new license. Now with a market hungry for product development of swift boating film projects is suddenly struggling to find new film making myths and disinformation scams to distract media from real issues. In doing so, they will extend the term of presidential campaigns and their season beyond anyone’s imagination.  Who will regulate the truth in these productions and the film maker’s objectivity is another matter that the Supreme Court has yet to discuss or concern itself with. Could it be that the old check and balance theory will kick in and Dick Chaney and Big Mike will be consulted by a Congressional Committee to determine how to keep everyone honest?

Case in point, Big Mike’s latest but obviously not his last effort at political targeting and movie making. This Romance with Capitalism shows no insight into the causal factors of greed. Big Mike’s convenient failure to identify principle players does dimly reflect his own security around his greedy modus operandi. After all, how else “Big Mike” be noticed unless he was the leading character in his own college production? Characterizing capitalism as evil while furtively subsidizing the beast itself, isn’t too distinctly different than being the obese representative of preventive health care program.

On camera Mike’s oversized body may signal Moore greed than Big Mike realizes. Why else have Moore Movies progressively managed larger expenditures? Why are Big Mike’s incredible film narratives being funded and produced? Unlike his previous health care filming in France and Cuba, Mike’s latest attack on “Free Markets” avoids traveling beyond our borders but offers a more significant brand of disinformation. Mike says that Government is frightened because we possess the right to vote. Yes! This is the same Big Mike that previously made another Moore Movie that claimed our right to vote can not be guaranteed to be registered or counted!

Beyond the boundaries of reason, humor, history, and movie financing Mike’s new claims create nothing new but his obvious growing influence on campaign prattle. With little effort Mike will be making more thrillers to financially support another democratic presidential campaign. Yes, like Cecil B. De Mille, Mike’s last film effort probably had significant budget overages that would sink even his oversized ego.  Yet thanks to the Supreme Courts latest ruling, Mike doesn’t need to worry about film financing or audience turn out. He will have enough money not only to make Moore movies but also to buy the four seats next to you on a plane. Don’t be too concerned! Sitting next to Big Mike on a plane has to be more difficult than sitting in front of him in a movie theater.

How did such an unlikely dude manage to become so financially nimble? Was it Moore bucks that placed Bill Maher in the movie business or was it Moore’s “free market”? Maher’s film rhetoric validates the concept that making light of Americans is fun because Americans appear on screen proud of being undereducated. Maher’s Movie leaves Americans with less pride than a Moore Movie. Maher’s inability to stimulate anything but his hubris, and the very militias that scare the rest of us, raise some serious questions about his sanity as he finds Moore humor in our laboring America’s illiteracy.

Is all of this fun to watch? Isn’t it humor at everyone’s expense? Do they care? Notice there isn’t much laughing because the truth here is deafening and yet unspoken. When considering the hidden expense and affect of the last Moore movie and those who will profit from it, we look forward to possibly a never ending “ground hog day” election system that is directed not by government but by the same corporations and lobbying firms that funded the disinformation found in Big Mike’s attack on capitalism, and the free market.

To historians there is little fun in the discomfort of viewing such a cognitive and selective reconstruction of history. Clearly, as Maher attaches to his whipping post a cast of some selectively chosen unfortunates. Bill has made certain that his casting bucks will hardly pay anyone’s bills but Bills! Granted this all knowing Master Maher seems validated by Big Mike’s musings about free markets so much so that he too discharges no criticism of Big Mike’s handling of health issues nor does he offer any effort to whip Mike into shape or sanity.

While Maher stands silent, this historical Free Market Capitalistic Moore movie selectively acknowledges Reagan’s ties to the credit card companies! Hoorah! Yet Moore omits telling us why those cards were seen as a necessary change in our banking system. While Big Mike’s history omits the gambling industries incredible involvement in the election of Ronald Reagan, it makes us wonder why Big Mike said nothing about the financing of casinos on Reagan’s foreign military bases and the Federal Reserve’s stimulating interest as well as AIG and Goldman Sachs involvement in funding Indian Casinos, Las Vegas and the gambling industries choke hold on not only on state governments but on Wall Street and world markets. Mike’s disinformation effort is even more complicit in protecting and developing an even larger world market bubble around debt than his prattle about the financial losses on Wall Street.  The gambling industry is empowered by foreign money and feeds those foreign gambling investments our working class’s cash. Did this entity feed Big Mike a Big Snack?

Sam Gompers was the first to see the slavery of American labor and warned that the American laborer had to come first not last. Our president has promised to govern those Wall Street cats with new restraints, yet he will not govern your local casino with any restraints because it is casino cash that keeps lobbyists bundling money to pay off state congressman, federal congressman, and campaign fund managers. Moore indicates that it is our right to vote that keeps these congressman honest but Moore avoids the whole truth. It is that very system that has fed Moore his Big Snack! The shadowing of the usage of the word casino is only a small part of the furtive campaign that has been created to steal voting power from America. The casino and gambling industry through its symbiotic interests of liquor lobbies, tobacco lobbies, media lobbies, credit card lobbies and insurance lobbies have been affecting our government. These lobbies bundled money to create casinos and they now bundle cash to promote gambling where ever they can. Moore’s Free Market movie is not much more than Moore disinformation and omission at its best.

Even if Sherlock Holmes had a lobotomy, one would suspect that he would still notice that Moore’s movie was filmed in New York City right on Wall Street in what most film makers know as the most expensive locations possible in the movie business. Couple that with a cast of high priced individuals from AIG, Sachs, and others leaving one to wonder, how Big Mike has gotten so big.  Yes the very crooks Mike seems to be toying with, signed off on his film. This signature statement probably means that big Mike paid them well for their appearances and location usage. Gee! Together they have assisted in veiling the financing of his entire production. My bet is that their real interests lie in protecting the bank and legislative power of the gambling industry.   At any rate Big Mike in creating this media piece of economic distortion of “debt, wealth, and corruption” Mike did more to service the stealth funding of the gambling industry than the levers of our voting machines. Mike failed not only to use the word casino but to mention another simple fact. The credit card biz has been pulling around 190 billion dollars a year from America’s interest payments on our credit cards while online gambling has been sending just about the same amount overseas annually through credit cards.

Yes as relevant as it is the “C” word was banned by Big Mike to never be used or associated with America’s “debt, and corruption.” Without any explanation, this chilling censorship or subtle omission deliberately dances through Moore’s movie without excuse or explanation. Yet there is another chilling tremor aside from this cold evisceration. Moore blurts out an arcane claim that Wall Street is an “INSANE” Casino. Is this claim shadowing another untold story?

What is a sane casino?  Master Maher also avoids the “C” word, as his film engages in pondering the greater meaning of Bud Abbott’s “Who’s on first” routine which he obvious believes to be a more significant contemplation than any discussion of gambling’s control of media, congress, and presidential campaigns. The censorship and “name game go on. Big Mike on the other hand now gambles on a higher plateau where he rolls with less humor and more questions. Using deductive reasoning to sway us all, we are finally left to believe that casinos must be sane, while on the other hand the stock market is “insane”.  With reasoning like this, Mike supposedly protects the rich folks so that Big Mike can securely make Moore movies, while the rest of us suffer with little hope as we deal daily with the predators that sit in our back yard and use the “C” word as they pay our state legislators. Think about it in pre-casino days those guys were considered part time employees and our Universities had more full time faculty than part time. Capital isn’t evil, but the hands touched by it seem to be demonstrating little sense or goodness.

The Supreme Court, president, congress and corporate interests are moving government out of election campaigns just as they have managed the placement of casinos in our very back yards. In doing so Government has assured us that there will be Moore movies. Sooner or later some of us will not only loose money to taxes, movies, and elections but will make that final suicide bet. We will make our last bet at the media owned casino in our back yard with our very last copper penny! Wow!!! I’m worried! Where will Big Mike find a confession booth large enough to fit his ego?

Gambling With the Money of Hardworking Americans

New Book Exposes History of Political Ties to Casinos, Alerts Americans to Future Dealings
November 10, 2008

BATON ROUGE, La. – What if an American voter’s choice of president proved to be a literal gamble with the financial future of the country? In his new book, Believe Me or Your Lying Eyes: An entertaining History of Casinos, Corruption and Charities in America (published by AuthorHouse), Lou Illar presents startling evidence of a long history of political ties to casinos and suggests that our nation’s future leaders have no choice but to rely on these same establishments.
Believe Me or Your Lying Eyes presents evidence of presidential relationships with casinos, from Ronald Reagan to George W. Bush to presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama. With the suspense of a crime novel, it lays before the reader an impressive body of research on the ethics of the casino culture as inspired by Illar’s personal experience. Illar leaves no boundary uncrossed as he relates his years of investigating the furtive, not-so-subtle games national leaders have played with America’s financial resources and moral values. Illar’s personal story reveals a courageous testing of our scales of justice against wealth, gambling and presidential power.

The book begins in 1990, when Illar is developing a script for what has become a well-known movie. The intended script is disrupted by the deceit of a single casino developer, and Illar proposes that this same deceit flows furtively through America’s justice system into the very politics of the nation. With a swelling of empirical evidence, he makes a convincing case against gambling and corruption. As a counterbalance, the gripping narrative explores charity, humor and the kind of heroism that is rooted in so many everyday Americans.
“It is a lost history covered by charitable deception and inconveniently relevant to the current crisis of government’s failure to govern,” writes Illar. “Although this book suggests that our next generation may witness an ‘unbridled’ gambling rampage on our dollar and our human value that may weaken our very culture and way of life, this writing, without strain or falsity of tone, more importantly offers a useful function for humor and irony which, in this exciting advocacy, serves to hallow and encourage human self sacrifice.”
A rare work of investigative writing, Believe Me or Your Lying Eyes entertains and enlightens curious readers concerned with lies and corruption among America’s leaders, as well as the local, national and international handling of America’s expendable income.
About the Author: A prolific comedy writer, ethicist, and martial artist, Lou Illar. He has written numerous television commercials and developed the original script for the movie “Sidekicks.” He has worked as a copyright expert and a strategic marketing consultant. As a writer and martial artist, Illar was twice inducted into Inside Kung-Fu magazine’s Hall of Fame.
