Your support of the program is invaluable. Producing the Thom Hartmann Program is a labor of love for the team, but doesn't come without cost. We supply the program to non-profit, community and volunteer radio and cable stations across the US. However, this isn't cost-free and being a supporter through Patreon means you can help us to meet some of the bills, to allow us to continue free supply to the non-profit sector.

As a way of saying thank you, we would like to give you something back for your support at various levels. Every weekday, the live Thom Hartmann Program three hour program is recorded exclusively for Patreon supporters. Unedited, the full three-hour video will be right here on the Patreon page, within a couple of hours of the end of the live program. And we're also providing extra videos exclusive to sponsors.

    HotCoffee, If web privacy is tightened say goodby to stock from Google and Facebook two of the most guilty predators on earth, both run entirely by democrats oddly enough.

    We probably will never see this happen because Thom Hartmann promised us the minute congress passed net neutrality, Al Gores entire internet would come to a halt and you and I would be paying hundreds of dollars a month just to cone to Thom Hartmann's blog.

    Maybe he was correct as there seems to be only three of us left.

    I'm not so sure that will work....why...well look back on this...did it work?

    Why Hillary’s Super-Predator Comment MattersHillary’s comment holds more significance than simply referring to gang members.

    Referring to black kids as super-predators back then is like how people use “thug” now. It was used to justify mass incarceration for many addicts and small dose marijuana users, not dealers.

    They totally blew it off when she called Donna Brazille a dumb buffallo.....They just don't hold there own accountable for anything.

    Hillary says this crap and then we're the racisist.

    Same game different faces.

    I don't see that changing anytime soon.

    I have come to the conclusion that by becoming so over the top with all their little petty personal issues, their hate rhetoric, and attempts at dividing this country into segments, the sane people of this country will turn them out and they will have set their agenda back 30 years. Much as they did in 2016.

    Occasional cortex from NYC is the best example of how a completely clueless individual elected to congress by a few idiots, will ruin the leftie/socialist cause in a very short time. One could only hope she and the billionaire Robert Francis O'Rourke from TX will team up and take over the democrat party ASAP.

    Generators, Coors and canned food. How these ‘mountain boys’ are surviving in Paradise

    By Ryan Lillis

    November 24, 2018 03:00 AM

    Updated 49 minutes ago


    Brad Weldon has lived in Paradise his entire life, and wasn’t about to leave his home or his blind, 90-year-old mother behind when the Camp Fire hit.

    And he’s not going to leave now that the fire is gone, though not much is left of the town he remembers.

    When the flames came up to his neighborhood in the central part of Paradise, Weldon grabbed a garden hose and beat back the blaze. When the hose line cut out, he started throwing buckets of water, five gallons at a time. His home was spared, but everything around him was wiped out.

    Two weeks later, Weldon is still at his house, one of a small group of self-proclaimed “mountain boys” who have defied evacuation orders and are surviving on meat stored in their generator-powered freezers, bagged lunches dropped off by PG&E crews and supplies provided by a mysterious band of volunteers that Weldon calls “the redneck underground.”

    Hey, Good Morning DianeR,

    I have a well stocked medical kit as well, I wasn't really getting it together as a prep thing as much as being so far from town and the time it would take for help to arrive. Just having a compression bandage could save a life. Good on you, training people use the equipment!. We never have enough tools for emergencies.

    Its really sad that the dems want to destroy their own culture, I have no clue what they think that accomplishes? They are great at tearing things down...what do they build??

    Can they show one city that is better off, a nicer place to live after they have been in control for a few years? I don't think so.

    Well, lets see what today brings


  • The Thom Hartmann Program - Aug 30th 2018   21 weeks 3 days ago

    Good morning HotCoffee, Gone all day yesterday teaching kids and ladies to safely handle and shoot firearms. Lots of converts and those people are understanding the fact they are their own first responder. We also include basic first aid, what to do until medical held arrives, and proper tourniquet application all of which wolud have saved many lives during the Boston bombing for example. I am odd because all of our vehicles carry a Resqme Seatbelt Cutter and Window Glass Breaker, RATS tourniquet, and fire extinguisher. Never needed any of them, hope I never do, but they are available if needed.

    The beauty of the day and a perfect example of where those malcontent leftie/socialists, so overwrought with "white guilt", are trying to drag this society into their own gloomy little being. I cannot imagine what it is like sitting around their dinner table flipping from CNN to MSNBC every other second, then rushing to the twitter machine to confirm what some idiot bobblehead had just spouted.

    "Critics are slamming ABC’s “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” for seating its only black character, Franklin, alone on one side of the holiday table — in a rickety old lawn chair."

    ^^enough said right there^^

    I hope all is well in your world.

    See Ya!

    Good morning DianeR,

    Kerry, these people just never go away.

    So glad there were NO mudslides in paradise.

    Another beautiful day.

    “They have categorically omitted and not complied with their legal obligations,” Gastelum said Thursday at a news conference, according to the Arizona Republic. “So we’re now asking them and international humanitarian aid groups to bring in and carry out humanitarian assistance.”

    The Tijuana municipal government says it is spending about $27,000 per day to house and provide care to the caravan migrants in the city. Gastelum, who has drawn criticism for his tough rhetoric about the caravan, warned that he would not authorize more spending as additional migrants arrive.

    “I will not compromise public services,” Gastelum said. “I will not spend Tijuanans’ money, I will not bring Tijuana into debt now, in the same way we haven’t done so these past two years.

    Tijuana, a sprawling border city of about 1.6 million, has long been a waypoint for migrants of all stripes seeking to cross the southwest border. But it has never had to accommodate the sudden arrival of so many homeless Central Americans, who are now waiting indefinitely to apply for asylum at the U.S. ports of entry. (RELATED: Angry Tijuana Residents Push Back Against Caravan Migrants: ‘This Is An Invasion!’)

    Nearly all of the caravan migrants are being sheltered in Tijuana’s Benito Juarez sports center. Officials say the center, which is already over capacity, cannot hold any more migrants while still maintaining even minimal safety and sanitary conditions.

    Good morning DianeR,

    I have a slow connection this morning we're under flash flood watch....no worries, not flooding here but contant downpour is slowing down my laptop.

    I will try posting when the rain slows down.

    Heavy rains in northern California are helping firefighters contain what has now become the deadliest wildfire in the state’s history.

    Mother Nature is giving firefighters badly needed relief as they continue to battle the Camp Fire, a raging wildfire in the northern region of the state that has killed at least 84 people and has caused billions in damage. An inch and a half of rain came down Wednesday, a level of water that experts say was the perfect amount — not too little, but not too much.

    “We needed it to come in and rain, and rain not too heavy,” National Weather Service meteorologist Bill Rasch explained, according to CNN.

    The Camp Fire is now 95 percent contained, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE). Firefighters will be given extra relief as rain continues to pour down on the region. Two to 4 inches of rain were forecast to hit the upper portion of Camp Fire by Friday morning, and rain is expected to continue through Saturday.

    However, while the rain is helping clear smoke and extinguish flames, is it also causing other problems. The combination of burned soil and heavy rain brings the deadly threat of flooding and mudslides. Meteorologists are now closely monitoring the amount of rainfall in the region and warning residents to be careful. (RELATED: As California Burns, Jerry Brown Takes Heat For Vetoing 2016 Wildfire Mitigation Bill)

    “Rainfall that would normally be absorbed will run off extremely quickly after a wildfire, as burned soil can be as water-repellent as pavement,” said the National Weather Service. “If you can look uphill from where you are and see a burnt-out area, you are at risk.”

    A flash flood watch remains in effect until Friday morning for nearly 1 million people living in northern California.


    I was able to see your townhall post....

    Happy Friday!

    more later.

    NO THANKS. Those who just heard it what about them?

    I suggest Thom buy up some phones and send them off to regular guests, and do a WHOLE SHOW on the scandalous nature of American cell phone quality. Imagine if having a medical emergency the 9-11 staffer desperately trying to hear "WHERE ARE YOU again I CAN'T HEAR YOU"

  • The Thom Hartmann Program - Aug 30th 2018   21 weeks 5 days ago

    HotCoffee: Good morning. I hope you had a great thanksgiving. Hopefully the rain will be just enough to get the fires under control but no enough to create devistation mudslides.

    It will be interesting to watch the border this week.

    I cannot think of a better use of our National Guard.


  • The Thom Hartmann Program - Aug 30th 2018   21 weeks 5 days ago

    Dear Louise and Thom,

    Thank you for all that you do, for all these wonderful years, for shining a light in the darkness. And may you remain humble in spirit and joyful in life for many more wonderful years.

    Around the world, so many people are graced by your good works.

    Thank you, from the heart.

  • The Thom Hartmann Program - Aug 30th 2018   21 weeks 5 days ago

    Dear Diane/HotCoffee/whatever,

    Thank you for playing the dupes. You deserve the honor accorded to any living being but not for spreading destructive delusions.

    In all sincerity, beyond the quick takes of daily news and despite being surrounded by it for a lifetime, it's still a rare opportunity to peer more deeply into the troubled mind of avid racism and religious hypocrisy as it unfolds in real net-time. Alas, forever sealed in this blog's archive and in the proverbial Akashic Record, let the lie stand alongside the truth. It's our choosing.

    Near the end, this once vibrant forum deserves at least a tribute, a taste of Thom's larger body of work, and of other writers and key references addressing the larger issues facing humankind and all life on Earth, does it not?

    And, on the darker side, in this nearly thousand-post thread (but also stretching back years), is there any clearer evidence of far-right bile and hate than the Thanksgiving Day messages from Dianereynolds and HotCoffee?

    Perhaps this is a good place to stop:



    Sorry for the long quote but it is dead on point.



    Time is like a river. You cannot touch the water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again. Franklin Graham was speaking at the First Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Florida, when he said America will not come back.

    He wrote:

    "The American dream ended on November 6th, 2012. The second term of Barack Obama has been the final nail in the coffin for the legacy of the white Christian males who discovered, explored, pioneered, settled and developed the greatest republic in the history of mankind.

    A coalition of blacks, Latinos, feminists, gays, government workers, union members, environmental extremists, the media, Hollywood, uninformed young people, the "forever needy," the chronically unemployed, illegal aliens and other "fellow travelers" have ended Norman Rockwell's America.

    You will never again out-vote these people. It will take individual acts of defiance and massive displays of civil disobedience to get back the rights we have allowed them to take away. It will take zealots, not moderates and shy, not reach-across-the-aisle RINOs to right this ship and restore our beloved country to its former status.

    People like me are completely politically irrelevant, and I will probably never again be able to legally comment on or concern myself with the aforementioned coalition which has surrendered our culture, our heritage and our traditions without a shot being fired.

    The Cocker spaniel is off the front porch, the pit bull is in the back yard The American Constitution has been replaced with Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals" and the likes of Chicago shyster David Axelrod along with international socialist George Soros have been pulling the strings on their beige puppet and have brought us Act 2 of the New World Order.

    The curtain will come down but the damage has been done, the story has been told.

    Those who come after us will once again have to risk their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to bring back the Republic that this generation has timidly frittered away due to white guilt and political correctness.."




    They will say things about this man, but it will not affect him, and they shall say it rolls off of him like the duck, for as the feathers of a duck protect it, so shall my feathers protect this next president. Even mainstream news media will be captivated by this man and the abilities I have gifted him with, and they will even begin to agree with him says the Spirit of God.

    One can't argue with lies and lunacy. So thank you, DR & HC, for demonstrating that simple truth so succinctly.

    And may God have mercy on your souls.
