    Default Is Trumpís History Contributing To The Destruction Of America? (w/ Dr Justin A. Frank

    The pattern of Trump in the past is a useful study to understand where he is today.

    Dr Justin A. Franks, M.D. examines Trumpís history and previous destructive streak and how it affects Americans today.

    The moral tone he sets today says that being aggressive, hurting others and his race views are fine with him, so why not with you? His lack of responsibility running the country is going to damage America, not improve it. Trump doesnít care about the rules and this destructiveness rubs off on many people.

    Default We Need To Defeat Trump's White Supremacy Virus

    What happened in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio isn't new.

    The economic and political undercurrent of American culture and politics has always been one of white supremacy.

    Until this poisonous thought virus is defeated, it will continue to function like a cancer in our society. We need to make it as much a criminal act to advocate white supremacy as it is to advocate for Al Qaeda or Daesh.

    Default Why Puerto Rico Is America's Fantasy Island

    A crucial, clear-eyed accounting of Puerto Rico's 122 years as a colony of the US.

    Two years after Hurricane MarŪa, Puerto Rico is still reeling from the storm's physical destruction and the ensuing infrastructure collapse. The devastation compounded the harmful effects of over a century of exploitative US economic, political, and social policies, including the trauma inflicted by its $72 billion debt crisis.

    In Fantasy Island, Ed Morales traces how, over the years, Puerto Rico has served as a colonial satellite, a Cold War Caribbean showcase, a dumping ground for US manufactured goods, and a corporate tax shelter. He also shows how it has become a blank canvas for mercenary experiments in disaster capitalism on the front lines of climate change, hamstrung by internal political corruption and the US federal government's prioritization of outside financial interests.

    Taking readers from San Juan to New York City and back to his family's home in the Luquillo Mountains, Morales shows us the machinations of financial and political interests in both the US and Puerto Rico, and the resistance efforts of Puerto Rican artists and activists. Through it all, he emphasizes that the only way to stop Puerto Rico from being bled dry is to let Puerto Ricans take control of their own destiny, going beyond the statehood-commonwealth-independence debate to complete decolonization.

    US newspaper mergers threaten democracy and journalism.

    Local newspapers in the US are being taken over by huge corporations who can now control national newspapers, radio and TV stations.

    These mega media corporations control what you read and what you see and hear.

    Journalists are being laid off, along with print workers and others in the sector following consolidation and cost cutting.

    Have these businesses grown so large that they should be broke up?

    Yosef Geachew from Common Cause Media joined Thom to discuss the newspaper crisis.

    Default In 33 Years The Rich Will Own All The Wealth In America!

    According to new data from the federal reserve, if current trends of the rich getting richer and the middle class getting poorer continues at their current rate, in 33 years the top 10% of Americans will own one hundred percent of all American wealth. Everyone else will be in poverty and in debt. Right wing billionaires like Donald Trump are cheering this on, calling for more tax cuts on rich people and less power for working people through the continuing destruction of unions and fighting the minimum wage.

    They tell us that the problem is not [a combination of] corporate monopoly and rich people taking everything for themselves....

    Default We Do Have A Mental Illness Problem & It's In The White House

    Trump, the NRA, and the Republican Party keep talking about mental illness as the core of our problem right now in America. And, indeed, we have a major mental illness problem in our country right now. Itís in the White House.

    Our president is mentally ill, and until we recognize that, acknowledge that, and begin a national conversation about it there can be no solution.

    Donald Trump lies, he continuously contradicts himself, and his erratic behavior are all symptoms of his severe mental illness.

    Many of AmericaĎs mental health professionals have recognized this, but a serious discussion of the presidentís mental illness has not yet moved out of the realm of mental health professionals and into our mainstream discussions.

    Default How Cowboys & Capitalism Are Ruining The American West

    Thom Hartmann reads a section from This Land: How Cowboys, Capitalism, and Corruption are Ruining the American West by Christopher Ketcham.

    From the publisher:
    "Journalist Christopher Ketcham has been documenting the confluence of commercial exploitation and governmental misconduct in this region for over a decade. His revelatory book takes the reader on a journey across these last wild places, to see how capitalism is killing our great commons. Ketcham begins in Utah, revealing the environmental destruction caused by unregulated public lands livestock grazing, and exposing rampant malfeasance in the federal land management agencies, who have been compromised by the profit-driven livestock and energy interests they are supposed to regulate. He then turns to the broad effects of those corrupt politics on wildlife. He tracks the Department of Interior's failure to implement and enforce the Endangered Species Act--including its stark betrayal of protections for the grizzly bear and the sage grouse--and investigates the destructive behavior of U.S. Wildlife Services in their shocking mass slaughter of animals that threaten the livestock industry. Along the way, Ketcham talks with ecologists, biologists, botanists, former government employees, whistleblowers, grassroots environmentalists and other citizens who are fighting to protect the public domain for future generations.

    Default Did Impeaching Andrew Johnson Lay The Foundation For Impeaching Trump?

    Could impeaching Trump have the backing of United States history?

    Back in February of 1868, Congress impeached Andrew Johnson, formerly Abraham Lincoln's Vice President who took office after Lincoln passed. What's interesting is that the articles of impeachment for Andrew Johnson could easily be applied to Donald Trump today.

    Could progressives work to impeach Trump just like Congress impeached Andrew Johnson so many years ago?
