Is Impeachment a Remedy to Hate?

Thom plus logo Since Trump took office, we have seen several white supremacist, Fox news watching, Donald Trump cult following "very fine people" try to send pipe bombs to the entire leadership of the Democratic Party, murder a young woman in Charlottesville, show up at Hillary Clinton's house to try to arrest her, make death threats against black and Muslim members of Congress. His supporters have murdered multiple people across America already.

And now Trump supporter Franklin Graham is going after Pete Buttigieg for being gay. Counties that hosted Trump campaign rallies have seen a 226% increase in hate crimes immediately following the rallies.

Donald Trump is spreading a disease in America, and a small part of the cure for that disease is to disgrace and discredit him through a comprehensive impeachment investigation.

It's driving me nuts that on your show and one or two others I've heard the comment that the impeachment of Clinton did not hurt the Republicans because they "won" the Presidency in the 2000 election. THEY DID NOT WIN!!! The Supreme Court chose our president that year. It was a coup! A caller referenced on your show that Gore lost in 2000 even though he won the popular vote and you didn't mention that he also won the electoral college, had the Supreme Court allowed Florida to finish the counting. Please correct yourself.

Can Americans Stop the Republican Party and Their Billionaire Lifeline Before Another Hundred Thousand Americans Die?

If a group of international billionaires who don't like democracy, business regulation, or the idea of a functioning multiracial culture wanted to hire somebody to destroy America, they couldn't have done better than Donald Trump.
From Cracking the Code:
"In Cracking the Code, Thom Hartmann, America’s most popular, informed, and articulate progressive talk show host and political analyst, tells us what makes humans vulnerable to unscrupulous propagandists and what we can do about it. It is essential reading for all Americans who are fed up with right-wing extremists manipulating our minds and politics to promote agendas contrary to our core values and interests."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community and When Corporations Rule the World and board chair of YES! magazine
From Screwed:
"I think many of us recognize that for all but the wealthiest, life in America is getting increasingly hard. Screwed explores why, showing how this is no accidental process, but rather the product of conscious political choices, choices we can change with enough courage and commitment. Like all of Thom’s great work, it helps show us the way forward."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen and The Impossible Will Take a Little While
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
