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.

What do you do as a society , when you learn everything you've been taught all your life is a lie, Romanticized 'whitewashed' horseshit. Such as it is for America 'home of the free'.
We have learned those traditionally not free ,black people are only 3/5th humans according to their own constitution . We also know that 12 US Presidents ran concentration camps, imprisoning black slaves for free labor. The key figures who wrote their charished constitution were known devout racists and slave owners. The White house itself built by slave labor. Their 'National Anthem' written by Francis Scott Key, a racist.
Americans so proud of their western heritage, are taught that they were the rightful conquering heirs of the vast lands of north America, but fail to mention they carried out a plan of mass extermination to achieve it.
Somehow Americans are taught that even the their civil war was somehow romantic and righteous, even thought they slaughtered each other by the hundreds of thousands.
Americans have been taught that their 'no free lunch' capitalistic economic system is backbone of their nation, the envy of the world, but now we find that this same system is destroying the the planet, is unsustainable and in the end the system has been rigged to benefit the the less than one percent that control it and pocket 99% of all of its riches it produces.
They are taught they are the most powerful nation on the planet, 'American exceptionalism heehaw', how many times have you bragartly heard that one. Take away the 7000 plus nukes, they can't win a war and end up turning tail and running every time they try to start one, even with countries less than half their size.
They continually tell each other the lie about the service of their 'fallen soldiers', when the truth is their military is tax payer subsidized muscle for their world wide corporate colonialism. One of their most decorated servicemen described as "a racketeers, a gangsters for capitalism."
Now Americans are learning their elections are controlled by a lying corporate media, , Russian hacking, voter rolls being purged, that the system is rigged, the system is broken , that according to President Jimmy Carter 'the US is oligarchy with unlimited political bribery.'
