Trump plays tinpot dictator instead of president

Thom plus logo The first job of a president is to be the president for all Americans. To bring people together. Like Lincoln talked about in the Gettysburg address, to bind our wounds and heal us.

Donald Trump not only did not do that, but he went out of his way to tear us apart, to pit one American against another, and inflame people like the 17-year-old Trump-humper who killed two people in Kenosha.

And he did it all on our property. The White House belongs to the people, not to Donald Trump or the Republican party. He, and every government official who was in that audience, violated both a civil and a criminal law.

Last night, the White House was a crime scene. And it must be punished.

They have successfully destroyed the Post Office. My wife uses it for her business and all is delayed. A package goes through multiple cities in zero organized routing. A package that the post office said was lost was actually delivered and never reported as delivered. She does not get paid until proof of delivery. This has all happened in the last month that deliveries have become completely unreliable. She is now looking at alternative shipping methods.

Trump has broken the law before he was elected and after he took office with no concern. The Republican controlled Senate protects him.

Actually, I think it was, Tinpot Dictator Prom Night Fox News Star Wars Fourth of July on steroids. Interesting that while basing much of his speech on law and order, he was agressively breaking the law and abusing the Constitution via the Hatch Act. All with the full throated approval of his shithead toady pchyophants that think the law and Constitution only applies to those saps that weren’t born rich. “Let Them Eat Shit” was the motto of the Republican Convention.

It occurred to me, what if everyone put a first class stamp on their mail-in ballots when they return them. Would that insure that they are treated like first class mail? True, “No Postage Necessary” but that doesn’t mean that you can’t put a stamp on the damn thing anyway! Then would’t they be obligated to treat it as First Class mail?

The County that I live in is heavily Republican. They County Comissioners and City Council voted to not have masks. The Governor mandated masks statewide. It has proven highly effective and has brought the number of cases per day down dramatically. Both in the State and the County. Wearing masks is a simple, cost effective solution. But The Republicans still fight it.

Good article for Whatabutt. Here goes your Social Security.

It has occurred to me that “Whataboob” is not really a real person but probably a rightwing computerized site programmed to send out propaganda to progressive sites.

Anybody else get that feeling?

Whatabutt is concerned that some liberals are overly politically correct. Yet Republicans who proclaim to be deeply religious do the opposite of what Jesus would do for the poor and homeless. Consistently break the law in this administration. Have numerous aids to the POTUS convicted of crimes and several receiving Presidential pardons. Have a POTUS that is at 20000+ lies. A POTUS that has totally blown the Pandemic to the point where Americans are banned from travel to most countries. Not to mention, we are number 1 in the world with 6 million+ cases and 190000 deaths. Feel free to add to the list.

Piers is a Royalist not a Liberal.

I wonder how to persuade the legitimate BLM protesters to back off until the election since the rioters are using them for cover and giving the RNC leverage. Polling shows that "rioting" has given the orange a huge bump.

Things will get better if Trump is in office for the next term. Wait, he all ready is in office.

Secret service is coming down with the virus because they deal with unmasked Republicans.

@#4; Seriously? Real Liberal my ass. Corporate hack, and paid to be such. There are NO,

I repeat, NO real liberals on MSM. I was hoping you'd give us a REAL liberal like Jimmy Dore, maybe even Thom, but since you're humping DJT's leg right now, neither was offered.

You paid sycophants are so F'ing transparent, but keep swinging.

@ #9; BLM backing off won't change a thing, DJT and his sycophants will only manufacture some kind of violence, and play off of it. Cause' it's a viable tactic....

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 - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Through compelling personal stories, Hartmann presents a dramatic and deeply disturbing picture of humans as a profoundly troubled species. Hope lies in his inspiring vision of our enormous unrealized potential and his description of the path to its realization."
David Korten, author of Agenda for a New Economy, The Great Turning, and When Corporations Rule the World
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 The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom is a national treasure. Read him, embrace him, learn from him, and follow him as we all work for social change."
Robert Greenwald, political activist and founder and president of Brave New Films
