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.

Article II Section 4 of the Constitution states that Bribery is a reason for impeachment and removal from office for all Civial Officers of the United States

The Supreme Court of the United States in "Citizens United" found that corporations could give/donate unlimited funds to the campaign funds of members of congress.

However, as of recent, those "generous donations" have been used as a threat against members of congress in order to achieve passage of legislation. They call it "Primarying". This "quid pro quo" constitutes Bribery or coercion. According to law, the offerer and acceptor of a bribe are both guilty of Bribery. Therefore anyone voicing or implying a threat of primarying is a Briber; such as: Steve Bannon, Grover Norquist, Koch Brothers, Mitch McConell, Paul Ryan and others.

This is false. Corporations are prohibited from giving to political campaigns.

Regarding Citizens United: It's clear we are not going to get either Congressional relief or from the Supreme Califate (excuse me, Court). However, relief could come from an open Constitutional Congress session and place limits and method for how politicians are funded. I would also recommend Term Limits for all offices including the Supreme Court. This one concept was a source of despaIr for our "democracy" for Thomas Jefferson and we are seeing the problem lifetime appointments to the Court(s) make. There are many other issues that changing times and attitudes could help resolve. Yes, let's "rock the boat"!

The question is not if corporations are allowed to back political parties or not, it is about self interest.

No More Presidential Immunity!

When Ronald Reagan committed treason in 1980 to get elected, Attorney General Bill Barr shut down the investigation in 1992 with five pardons.
