How Do We Take Back the Military From the Billionaire Owned Military Industrial Complex?

Thom plus logo Democrats (Bernie & Lee) in the senate proposed legislation saying what the Constitution already says: that Trump can't go to war with Iran without congressional authorization. Every Republican on the committee, except Rand Paul, voted against it.

These Republicans are spitting on the Constitution, every American who has ever served in the military, and the Founders of this country in their frightened rush to placate Trump and his fellow billionaires, particularly those who got rich in the Military Industrial Complex.

It's time to overturn the Supreme Court decisions that gave war contractor billionaires the ability to own an entire political party.

Unpopular, irreligious, unpatriotic, immoral, unintelligent, incapable, unfit, and insane,

Trump The Flaccid finally found his Roy Cohn

...as the once great, white, male, puss-gut 'Meerkkka marches ever backward toward full-blown fascism:

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/25/us/politics/trump-intelligence-agencies.html.

The internet -- a depository of all human knowledge in our pockets at our fingertips -- is perhaps the greatest tool ever crafted by we hairy hominids, the purported "thinking" apes, the (ha-ha) "crown of creation." So, OF COOOURSE, how do demented Trump freaks choose to use and abuse their little, pencil-dick tool?

It's not so much what the screeching, feces-flinging monkeys think (who cares); it's how they think (fear and hate). These dead-end offshoots of mutated nature are destroying our society, our planet, our spirit.

A cancer on life...

A functioning democracy free of big-money influence can only happen if the majority of citizens are aware enough to actively resist the avalanche of untruthful propaganda assaulting them on all fronts, and then rise up en masse at the voting booth to overwhelm the minority of authoritarian followers. Willful ignorance and apathy have produced the plutocracies/kakistocracies that plague the world today, which is not that much different from the lopsided rule of the medieval kings and queens and nobles who controlled most of society's wealth.

In the U.S., that dysfunction translates into the willfully ignorant Republicans who vote and the willfully apathetic Democrats who don't. I suspect a similar dynamic is at work in the U.K., the E.U., and everywhere else democracies are in decline.

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

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 Screwed:
"The powers that be are running roughshod over the powers that OUGHT to be. Hartmann tells us what went wrong — and what you and I can do to help set American right again."
Jim Hightower, National Radio Commentator, Writer, Public Speaker, and author of the bestselling Thieves in High Places
From Screwed:
"If we are going to live in a Democracy, we need to have a healthy middle class. Thom Hartmann shows us how the ‘cons’ have wronged this country, and tells us what needs to be done to reclaim what it is to be American."
Eric Utne, Founder, Utne magazine
