Why are Trump & the GOP Allowing Foreign Governments to Mess With Our Elections?

Thom plus logo Donald Trump has, according to news reports, cut back on the task force and staff who are protecting our elections, the same way that Brian Kemp blocked attempts to insure that the elections in Georgia - which he "won" - were fair and clean. In this case, it's not about blocking black voters like Kemp did but, instead, letting foreign governments infiltrate our voter rolls and possibly alter our vote totals. Why would Trump do this? That answer, particularly given the result of the 2016 election, seems self-evident (they want him to win, and he welcomes their help).

A bigger question is why the Democratic Party and the news media aren't raising hell. Can you imagine if Cuba was hacking our elections and Democrats started winning outlier elections?

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Today, we are closing Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to hartmannreport.com - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"If you wonder why and when giant corporations got the power to reign supreme over us, here’s the story."
Jim Hightower, national radio commentator and author of Swim Against the Current
From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
