    @thom i fully agree and hope (as you seem to do also) that "... we choose to be open, inclusive, and a nation where every life is respected"Or will we choose to be open, inclusive, and a nation where every life is respected

    All inclusive, includes the orange ""menace" and its followers, and respect for all life includes a fair and quick trial for all prosecuted, indicted, impeached etc.

    @deepspace !!!! Excellent.

    Impeachment has already been pardonned by congress. Mistake? Yes, according to many. Fact? yes. Possible reparation: vote in congress better senators (woefull attempt to plaguarize you).

    What will Pence exactly pardon? The orange thingy and some of its derivatives have benefited unfairly in many instances against many citizens, communities, even some companies. I just hope that several citizens (especially New Yorkers) will have the time, stamina, and resources to pursue them, in the context of a fair (but not necessarily quick) trial.

    I could not open the link for the bet. At any rate, i stopped betting money a long time ago. Too "capitalistic" and "abstract" I'd rather bet something that grows in my garden, a meal that i will cook etc. Pity, since, i think that he will go for the full four years, and may even get the second term. Statistically, he has a 50:50 chance agains Biden. Biden may increase his chances, by proving beyond any doubt / guaranteeing that the agenda of Sanders, Andrew Young is unequivocally included, supported and pursued by him if he is eventually elected. If not enough people "protest" (= vote) (plaguarizing again), then perhaps USA needs a second term, hoping that it will be the lowest point, where either we get stuck or start ascending (once more)

    I have an issue but don't know where to post it.

    Liberals: PLEASE! Stop promoting, encouraging, supporting "statehood" for PR. Earlier today a caller to the program did just that. Thom's comment was ambiguous at best.

    Why you shouldn't encourage "statehood" for PR?

    1. It would mean the destruction of a nationality.

    2. It would translate into a form of cultural genocide by assimilation.

    3. It would further erode the sense of community, initiative & creativity by feeding Puerto Rican dependence & the myth of US superiority.

    I understand you liberals. Some of you perhaps act in this case out of the goodnesses of your heart & a feeling of "white man's burden."
    However, to promote the destruction of a nation so that you can add the votes of a poor minority (democratic senators & members of the House of Representatives) is not freaking right!

    Puerto Rico must join the constellation of independent & progressive nations of the world.

    Stop being so darn patronizing.

    This Sunday is Flag Day. Something that bothers me has been when protesters a few years ago in Ferguson & a few weeks ago in Atlanta burned the American Flag. This is offensive to people who have served and who believe in American ideals. And it is not smart. The American flag should be the symbol of progressives... it is the symbol of all the ideals we hold dear and we should not be letting Republicans take that from us. Progressive protestors should march with the American Flag at their head and it should be our symbol, not theirs. If you want to burn a symbol that represents what protestors are fighting against now, then protestors should burn the Confedeate flag. The real enemies to American ideals will reveal themselves then, because only racists would defend such a symbol. They have been hiding under a claim of southern heritage long enough. An open wound can not heal until it has been cleaned. Let them have their symbol and we claim the one that morally and patriotically belongs to us.

    SUPREME COURT and Federal Judges

    Article III, Sect. 1 of the US Constitution states:

    “The Judges, both of the supreme and inferior Courts, shall hold their Offices during good behavior, and shall, at stated Times, receive for their Services, a Compensation, which shall not be diminished during their Continuance in Office.”

    Sec 2. “the supreme Court shall have appellate jurisdiction, both as to Law and Fact, with such Exceptions, and under such Regulations as the Congress shall make.”

    There is nowhere within Article III that grants Federal judges or justices a lifetime position, nor the ability to create law, nor strike down duly enacted Federal laws. There are remedies for the court’s current arrogance which the Congress continues to allow. 1. Currently, they require only a simple majority in their decisions, but that can be altered by Congress to a super majority to strike down any duly enacted Federal law or they could ban the court from doing anything other than make a recommendation with regards to certain language within the law. 2. The number of seats on the court can be changed to 11 since it’s historically been changed over the course of our history. 3. Lifetime positions can be eliminated or subject to periodic review at which time they could be allowed to stay in their position, be moved elsewhere or discharged. 4. Congress can add language to legislation, and this has been done on occasion, “not subject to judicial review”.

    5. Grant Congress the right to reverse the Court's decisions with a super majority of both House and Senate when it's proven harmful to the Constitution and/or democracy.

    These are a few suggestions for reigning in the power of the supreme court, which is apparently necessary given the disastrous decisions based on the makeup of the court over the course of our 240 year history and how it’s impacted this nation. Especially given the disaster resulting from the 1976 Buckley case declaring money as protected under 1st Amendment free speech for individuals. 1978 First National Bank that expanded that 1st Amendment protection to business declaring their political ads, candidate contributions, etc. to be “free speech” That began the era of the legal buying of political favors and politicians and ending the representation of the constituents in the 1980’s and forward. Then came the 2010 Citizen’s United decision that declare corporations as persons protected under the 14th Amendment which was intended for the freeing of human slaves, not artificial corporations, yet the Court managed to stretch our imaginations with that one. And the rest is the history of massive corruption of our political system and the destruction of democracy.

    Trump is the antithesis of the ideal leader in Covey's seminal work "7 Habts of Highly Effective People."

    7 Habits of Highly Effective People (and 7 Responses from a Highly Ineffective President)

    1) Be Proactive.
    Trump: "No. Wait and we'll see what happens."
    2) Begin with the End in Mind.
    Trump: "No. Trust my beautiful brain working on the fly and everything will turn out bigly."
    3) Put First Things First.
    Trump: "Yes. ME first. Always."
    4) Think Win-Win.
    Trump: "No. Think zero sum game and incessantly attack any perceived threat to my ego."
    5) Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood.
    Trump: "Why listen to you? I understand your truth better than you do. It's whatever I say it is - believe me."
    6) Synergize.
    Trump: "No. Only I can fix it."
    7) Sharpen the Saw.
    Trump: "Yes... Fast food, stimulants, Twitter, and cable TV to be your best self."

    What? The Covid-19 is not magically disappearing? Arizona is the new hot spot. I guess that shoots down the theory that it will die in the blazing heat of Summer. Looking at the world numbers, it is not going away. An Trump is going back to huge rallies. This will be an interesting election. We will probably be close to 300000 deaths by November 3rd. So much death could be avoided by wearing masks. I stopped going to Home Depot months ago when the retired CEO and major stock owner donated 70 million to Trump campaign. Yesterday, I had to call the Lowes Manager and complain that employees were not wearing masks and most customers were. Costco requires that all customers and employees wear masks. Support Costco.

  • Fox, Tucker and Trump: Get Your Knees off Their Necks   3 weeks 11 hours ago

    Thom usually talks about the stuff he blogs about on air, and when he does, I do my best to find links relevant to what he says (and what guests and callers say), and put them in the stack on the newsletter. This comes out a few hours after the show, is free, and you can sign up for it.

    Later on, I also post the stack on the site https://www.thomhartmann.com/radio/sues-daily-summaries

    So you can check for yourself rather than just take Thom's (or anyone else's) word for it.

  • Will America Go Forward or Backward?   3 weeks 16 hours ago

    Street protests, of course, are a vitally important exercise of citizens' First Amendment rights insofar as focusing attention on the key issues and to excite the masses. But the most powerful form of protest is to vote. That's when the spade in the hole makes the flush, but if you don't play it, ya got nothin. And that's why Trump and his Republican supplicants are desperately focused on suppressing the vote. That's the only card they have left to play this late in the game.

    The Iowa primary totally freaked them because it worked out so well for We the People. Republican strategists know there's not enough time left, even less when factoring in early mail-in voting by a significant percentage of the population, to do their usual Russian-assisted social media disinformation campaign to dissuade voters from participating in the "beating heart of democracy." The idea is not so much to get Republicans to vote as it is to disillusion Democrats.

    Unfortunately for the bad guys, outside events are surpassing their ability to spin them in their favor, especially when those dire circumstances are chiefly caused by the fool at the top of their ticket. If we would have free and fair elections, the Republican Party, and everyone else, knows they don't stand a chance. But since Trump's lizard brain only thinks of his own survival, there will come a day when even he must look beyond utter political defeat and contemplate what comes next.

    If someone doesn't pardon him, he's likely to finally face the justice he well deserves (fulfilling his destiny as a "Law and Order" president), which means he stands a real chance of going to prison like his former thugs. (Oh please, God!) Therefore, what would be his best option to survive a post-presidency?

    If he actually heeds the advice of his lawyers and more sober advisors, then that would be to pull a Nixon, resign, and get Pense to pardon him. Biden has laid down a marker saying that he wouldn't. (He better not, gawddammit!) Nixon was already in his second term, so he immediately resigned when it became apparent that he would lose a Senate impeachment trial; and on cue, Ford pardoned him. (Gawddamn him for that!) Nixon then went on to live out his life as a free man, whom many even considered an elder statesman for his work with China. (Yeah right; look at what that did to America's manufacturing base!)

    The non-strategists among us might say that Trump would never resign before the election because of his big fat ego, and they would be right. But, pray tell, why would he not resign once he already lost the election so that Pence can sell out the American people yet again and pardon his big fat ass in the two and a half months left of their lame-duck administration? After all, Pence completely blew his political career anyway, what little he might have saved, by being the ultimate yes-man for the worst (fake) president in history.

    So, wouldn't that be Trump's best option for at least avoiding his federal felonies, notwithstanding the many state charges, for which he can't be pardoned?

    Anyhow, I see that bet and raise 20 bucks.

  • Fox, Tucker and Trump: Get Your Knees off Their Necks   3 weeks 19 hours ago

    Again, if this, and events like it happened, and I believe they did, because I believe Thom,

    where is our leadership? They should be all over the MSM with this story. But, they're not. The question is, why not?

  • What Will It Take to Stop Republicans from Maintaining Structural Racism in Our Voting?   3 weeks 20 hours ago

    Voter supression is in the RNC's DNA. If Pelosi and Schumer were real leaders they'd call them out on it. But, IMO, they're more interested in kissing up to the eilites who fund their election runs. They serve the most powerful, unnamed party in politics, the party of "Big organized money", as do the majority of both parties.

    You can't change a system you never mention...

  • Fox, Tucker and Trump: Get Your Knees off Their Necks   3 weeks 20 hours ago

    Obviously, they do not.

    Yeah, that Forbes article synopsis the Farleigh Dickinson University poll quite nicely -- a very important finding that quickly disappeared down the corporate media memory hole, naturally.

    I seldom watch any of their shallow, sensational baloney, no matter the ideological bent (more of a reader than a watcher). But it does seem that some of them, MSNBC particularly, is getting somewhat better at focusing -- to a degree, anyway -- on the truly momentous and consequential events that deeply impact all of us. Perhaps the intervening Trump years and the cascade of lies have woke them up a bit.

    As far as responding to the lies and conspiracy theories madly proliferating on the right, Amanda Marcotte nailed it. Thom is also an inspiration for how to talk to "conservatives" without blowing a cork -- a truly herculean task.

  • What Will It Take to Stop Republicans from Maintaining Structural Racism in Our Voting?   3 weeks 21 hours ago

    Fair points.

    I'm just wondering if we have enough sand left in the evolutionary hourglass before we destroy most life on Earth. If one follows the science at our current rate of carbon emissions, it ain't lookin good.

    When's the last time climate change hit the front pages amidst all the nonstop coverage of the Trump lunacy? Humans are great at ignoring dire emergencies. The most powerful nation on Earth is largely acting like we're past the pandemic. We're not. And we're acting as if climate change is no big deal. It is.

    De-evolution can't be ruled out.

  • What Will It Take to Stop Republicans from Maintaining Structural Racism in Our Voting?   3 weeks 23 hours ago

    @deepspase

    It is hard statistically to have racism fall along political lines in USA, unless all political parties are cosidered to be more or less racist.

    If 98% of a place are yellow avocados and 2% red avocados, it is highly likely that the latter will be discriminated, and probably 98% of the time the discriminated against and 2% of the time for. It is in the avocado nature. Nature evolves, slowly but securely. To the extent that racism goes against it, it will eventually disappear due to natural selection. An after death experience in my case, but since i do not believe in afterlife such an experience will go unnoticed, so far as i am concerned. Still, evolution should continue at least for 2500 years after mi expiration date, and possibly more.

    While Fox viewers tend to be misinformed (e.g. http://www.forbes.com/sites/kenrapoza/2011/11/21/fox-news-viewers-uninformed-npr-listeners-not-poll-suggests/#5ed1be8b6189) there is no need to be rude - they may not realise it.

  • Fox, Tucker and Trump: Get Your Knees off Their Necks   3 weeks 1 day ago

    No, it's not OK.

    Please keep it civil, everyone. If not, you will be booted. You have been warned!

  • What Will It Take to Stop Republicans from Maintaining Structural Racism in Our Voting?   3 weeks 1 day ago

    Well, once it was a small town. Those old-age drugs are really working out well.

    };--)))

  • Fox, Tucker and Trump: Get Your Knees off Their Necks   3 weeks 1 day ago

    I can feel your anger.

    Didn't know that calling out your Fux News bullsht was a personal attack. In reverse, would your idea of banned speech also count for spreading unsourced disinformation about the scourge of racism then? That's the real mud.

    Now, what's that label wingers hang on overly sensitive liberals who whine too much? Oh yeah, "snowflake." Sorry for "triggering" you. Mea culpa.

    BTW, in addition to his overt racism, Trump built his entire political career on ad hominem attacks against anyone and everyone who dares to call out his over-the-top bullsht too. Hypocrisy comes in many flavors.

  • What Will It Take to Stop Republicans from Maintaining Structural Racism in Our Voting?   3 weeks 1 day ago

    I also grew up in a small town called Los Angeles.

  • Fox, Tucker and Trump: Get Your Knees off Their Necks   3 weeks 1 day ago

    Moderator if there is one here:

    I am new here so forgive me if I don't know all the rules.

    Is it OK to throw out ad hominin attacks on other posters just because they are too biased to allow others to make comments that may or may not agree with the host?

    Most forums I have participated in have a moderator that prevents personal attacks and bullying and those posters are quickly dealt with through public warnings followed by removal from the group. Does this forum follow that same practice?

    If bulverism is permitted please let everyone know and we can go at it tooth and nail and drag this forum down into the mud.

  • What Will It Take to Stop Republicans from Maintaining Structural Racism in Our Voting?   3 weeks 1 day ago

    Haha, good one. That might be a little before my time also.

    It probably depends on the unique cultural makeup of each community as far as racism in the political sense; but by and large, in Trump's America at least, chances are that if you are a racist then you will vote Republican this fall.

    Anecdotally, I grew up in a small town that was and mostly still is about 98 percent white. It was true then that there were unconscious bigots, if not full-fledged racists, who belonged to both major parties. Now, however, as the world gets smaller and people become more self-aware of their own prejudices, it seems that racism does fall along political lines.

  • What Will It Take to Stop Republicans from Maintaining Structural Racism in Our Voting?   3 weeks 1 day ago

    I agree wholeheartedly, but i sense a diverting shift. I can accept that it is structural racism, which is a subset if racism. But i disagree with reducing the issue to a political one. Racism, even structural one, does not discriminate along political lines. I wish the oriblem was as easy as voting one party out, but it won't do the trick (based on past experience). Simoly because the parties voted in, will continue much of the same. Even in the 21st century and despite the progress in science, art and technology, the advancement in resolving intellectually basic issues, such as racism, appears painfully slow. We will get there eventually, at least that what Trevor Noah claims/hopes.

    Social changes that require paradigm shifts apparently need time, time and time. Paguarizing Mark Vernon ("Plato's podcasts", page xx): ....Well ask yourselfwho wrote this:"Today most people favour the life of consumption and pursue pleasure or wealth or fame." It was Aristotle 2500 years ago.

    Allegedly, i have not been living for that long to have first-hand experience.

  • Fox, Tucker and Trump: Get Your Knees off Their Necks   3 weeks 1 day ago

    There ya go again... There is no truth in what you say, just unsourced crap you pulled out of your butt or more likely the racist butts of the Fux News "oh-so-logical" hosts with whom you are obviously enthralled, and who no doubt feed your delusions. These illusory screeds are pitiful attempts at excusing and diluting the very real problem of right-wing hate and systemic racism that is destroying our civilian police forces and tearing our nation apart.

    "White nationalism" is nothing but a cheap euphemism for "white supremacy." As the popular saying (falsely attributed to Sinclair Lewis, though he would be in full agreement) accurately predicted, "When fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in a flag and carrying a cross." Trump wingers are neither patriotic nor religious -- they are just liars.

Will America Recover from the Rightwing Billionaire's War Against Us?

Thom plus logo This morning on CNN a physician in Texas talked about having 10 young people with COVID-19 who needed immediate hospitalization and only having three beds left. He had to decide who is going to get treatment and who was going to be turned away from the hospital.
