Once a Mobster - Always a Mobster?

Thom plus logo Politico is reporting that Donald Trump is raising millions of dollars for individual Republican senators who have signed a resolution opposing his impeachment. Signing that resolution is, essentially, a statement that these men and women who will be "jurors" in the trial of Trump in the Senate have already made up their mind about how they will they will vote in the jury box. If a criminal defendant were to be shoveling money toward jurors before his trial, he would be in prison in a New York minute. But Donald Trump has no shame, and is openly bribing the jurors in his upcoming trial. Once a mobster, always a mobster.

Average polling to date -- even before public hearings -- indicates that nearly half the nation wants Trump impeached and removed from office.

After a month or so of public hearings, the number of disgusted citizens is likely to rise, at least until it hits the upper limit blocked by an intransigent one-third, who are gaslighted into chanting nonsense by the proponents of impossible deep-state conspiracy theories taken as right-wing religion. Politically, those lost souls are beyond redemption.

The further demise of our once-great democracy will be on full display for the world to witness as a corrupt, cowardly cabal of Republican senators, who over-represent their gullible minority, once again defy the Constitution and the powerless masses and prostrate themselves before their almighty masters, the wealthy few.

Now, imagine Trump's second term...

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 The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann channels the best of the American Founders with voice and pen. His deep attachment to a democratic civil society is just the medicine America needs."
Tom Hayden, author of The Long Sixties and director, Peace and Justice Resource Center.
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Beneath the success and rise of American enterprise is an untold history that is antithetical to every value Americans hold dear. This is a seminal work, a godsend really, a clear message to every citizen about the need to reform our country, laws, and companies."
Paul Hawken, coauthor of Natural Capitalism and author of The Ecology of Commerce
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."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
