Trump's GOP Hitman Who's Stealing Your Vote

Greg Palast, Rolling Stone/BBC News/Billionaires & Ballot Bandits joins Thom. With just over 6 months until the November elections - Trump is presumptive Republican nominee - and he's getting a lot of help from Kansas' Secretary of State - Kris Kobach. Kobach has spent years pushing for strict voter suppression laws that help Republicans get elected by putting undue burdens on voters to prove their citizenship - despite the fact that there is no evidence that voter fraud is a real problem in the United States. And that means that 36,000 people have had their registration suspended in the state of Kansas alone.

The Zika Threat Looms as the GOP Dithers

Erik Altieri, Agenda Project Action Fund joins Thom. Less than two years after the Republicans were freaking out about Ebola crossing the border from Mexico or whatever - and the Republicans are basically just shrugging at the idea of the Zika virus spreading throughout the United States. But more people here are going to be sickened by Zika than were at risk for Ebola in the United States - so what will it take for Republicans to come around and actually address this threat before it becomes a crisis?

Politics Panel - The Bernie Blackout Returns

Hughey P. Newsome, Bold.global/Move-On-Up & Ari Rabin-Havt, The Agenda/SiriusXM Progress/Lies, Incorporated: The World of Post-Truth Politics & Rebecca Downs, Red Alert Politics all join Thom Hartmann. The mainstream media may have already decided that Hillary Clinton is the democratic nominee for president - but don't tell that to Bernie Sanders or his supporters. For example - a Sanders campaign last night in Sacramento - California drew 21,000 people. The mainstream media - of course - was nowhere to be found. Why has the mainstream media just bought hook line and sinker the Clinton line that the general election has already begun?

How & Why You Should Sue Your Bankster

James Goodwin, Center for Progressive Reform joins Thom.

Hughey P. Newsome, Bold.global/Move-On-Up & Ari Rabin-Havt, The Agenda/SiriusXM Progress/Lies, Incorporated: The World of Post-Truth Politics & Rebecca Downs, Red Alert Politics all join Thom Hartmann. The Republican Party is still struggling to come to grips with the fact Donald Trump is its de facto nominee for president. And even though he's said that he can't endorse Trump just yet - Speaker of the House Paul Ryan told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Monday that he'd step down from his position as convention chair if that's what Trump wanted. Will Trump end up shaping the Republican Party in his image or will the Republicans party manage to shape Trump in its image?

Survivors in the Sudan Need Help

Dr. Atong Ayuel Longar Akol, Republic of Sudan Ministry of Health/Juba Teaching Hospital joins Thom. South Sudan is the world's newest nation state - and like all new nation states - is working hard to build up new institutions. But South Sudan is also emerging from three decades of brutal civil war - and therefore faces challenges that many new nation states don't have to worry about. For example - it's estimated that as a result of the extreme violence of the past 30 years almost 35 percent of the population of South Sudan has Post-Traumatic Stress Disoder - or PTSD. This comes on top of existing mentall illnesses, and is compounded by the fact South Sudan has just one practicing psychiatrist - 5 psychologists - and 24 mental health trainees. So how IS South Sudan working to deal with its mental health problems?
