WHY I AM ASKING FOR YOUR SUPPORT AT PATREON?

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.

Inspection- There is NO Such Thing as 'Fake News'

If it is news, it’s not fake. News is a measurable quantity. The two terms are mutually exclusive, but together not as clever as some seem to think. In fact those who use it the most, use it frequently, are often purveyors of what some call “fake news.”

Trump? An "innocent" man? Hah! And BILLY JOEL? Rolling in the floor LAUGHING!

Trump? An innocent man? Hah!

INDEED, a truly “innocent” man- and a man with “NOTHING to hide” - would “CLEARLY NOT”:

Poor & Middle Class "GOP" Voters: Exactly WHAT PLANET are you living on?

Anyone with a remote sense of intellect AND honesty can CLEARLY see, AND concede, that the “economic interests" of “the 99%” - and especially those within the “bottom 50%” of incomes, in America, are CLEARLY and ONLY served by the political platform and legislative agenda of the DEMOCRATS. It's just an ABSOLUTE FACT. Case closed. Next case!

YES there was MASSIVE COLLUSION

YES there was COLLUSION that put Donald Trump in the Presidency , a collusion by Vlad Putin, right wing run voter subversion tools like Analytica , FOXfalseNEWS, Russians bots, Americas billionaire owned media, republican controlled states disenfranchising poor and minorities , plus voter apathy and even ill timed comments by FBI head James Comey that STOLE the presidency from Hillary Clinton.

Trump Throws a Rod, Cowen Burns Out a Piston: Stormy Kicks Both of Their Asses

A good day in court for justice. Judge Kimba Wood (originally a Reagan judicial appointee) seems to be taking no BS from the right's lawyer surrogates. This is how things are going in the current pit stop at the Trump 6900 International.

"Do we look like guys who need hookers?”

YES !

Inspection- Boris and Natasha Politics

Meet Boris and Natasha, two dimensional cartoon characters with the usual one dimensional personalities that cartoon characters had. To be honest: content-wise, Boris and Natasha were closer to three dimensional than many cartoon characters back then. You knew exactly what Yogi was going to do, or Astro the dog, Tom and Jerry.
