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.

African Trophy Hunt Licenses

Despite what the young man says on MSNBC, very little of the fee trophy hunters pay the Zimbawbwe government goes to wildlife conservation and park rangers -- most of the fee goes to support their dictators lifestyle. This is a person who serves roasted baby elephant at state dinners and who is currently snatching baby elephants from their mothers to sell to highest bidder -- mostly China.

Being that Zimbawbwe's governement is currently in turmoil, it is unknown what a future ruler will do about the country's great cats, water buffaloes, and elephants -- all of which are endangered.

The ban against importing trophy heads and ivory into the US from trophy kills should remain. We as a nation cannot contribute to the killing of these endangered animals.

I cannot speak for Zambia since it is not a country I track. However, all elephants, rhinos, and big cats are threatened and should not be hunted. Biologists predict these big animals will be extinct by 2050 -- some say by 2040. Very very sad.
