    Default Will $23 Billion Nuclear Bailout Cause Nuclear Fallout?

    Why does the failing nuclear power industry want billions of your tax dollars to run dangerous nuclear plants?

    Nuclear power is a failing industry because the cost of nuclear power and the risk of nuclear contamination are too ..., especially compared to green energy which out perform this industry greatly.

    Now the nuclear industry is trying to get a government bailout to keep running power plants that put you and your communities in danger.

    Kevin Kamps from Beyond Nuclear joins Thom Hartmann to discuss the $23 Billion Nuclear Bailout.

    Default The Hidden History Of Witchcraft & Women

    The witch hunt was a result of the printing press, or were men afraid of powerful women?

    People of all sexes follow witchcraft and are modern practitioners of the craft, but the history of witchcraft is really the history of women's rights, feminism and much more!

    Being a witch can be associated with women’s rights, or is there more to it?

    Default Will We See The Crash Before It's Too Late?

    Should we care about corporate debt and will it mean we will all lose our home?

    There is a high risk in ignoring how much money is owed by corporations. If the interest rate rises even by a small amount, many will default. That could bankrupt thousands of businesses and out millions out of work with no income.

    Bad decisions take when borrowing cheap money will come back to bite when their corporate bonds come to mature.

    Dr. Richard Wolff asks whether the credit rating agencies should have lowered the credit ratings of corporations due to their level of debt.

    What will happen if the economy crashes?

    Donald Trump is sending out a letter to donors demeaning his political opponents and the results could be very dangerous.

    Default The Secret History of Nuclear War!

    Fred Kaplan, hailed by The New York Times as “a rare combination of defense intellectual and pugnacious reporter,” takes us into the White House Situation Room, the Joint Chiefs of Staff’s “Tank” in the Pentagon, and the vast chambers of Strategic Command to bring us the untold stories—based on exclusive interviews and previously classified documents—of how America’s presidents and generals have thought about, threatened, broached, and just barely avoided nuclear war from the dawn of the atomic age until today.

    Kaplan’s historical research and deep reporting will stand as the permanent record of politics. Discussing theories that have dominated nightmare scenarios from Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Kaplan presents the unthinkable in terms of mass destruction and demonstrates how the nuclear war reality will not go away, regardless of the dire consequences.

    Default What Is Stopping Trump From Being Placed In Jail?

    Congress has a law enforcement officer who could put Trump in jail . . . but there is one thing stopping him from arresting Trump.

    Should progressives lobby to change the rules around inherent contempt, where Congress acts as the jailer so that Trump and future presidents would not be able to hide behind justice department officials like Bill Barr?

    Default The Dehumanizing Doctrine Of Discovery (Mark Charles and Soong-Chan Rah)

    Thom reads from Unsettling Truths: The Ongoing, Dehumanizing Legacy of the Doctrine of Discovery.

    From the publisher: You cannot discover lands already inhabited. Injustice has plagued American society for centuries. And we cannot move toward being a more just nation without understanding the root causes that have shaped our culture and institutions. In this prophetic blend of history, theology, and cultural commentary, Mark Charles and Soong-Chan Rah reveal the far-reaching, damaging effects of the "Doctrine of Discovery." In the fifteenth century, official church edicts gave Christian explorers the right to claim territories they "discovered." This was institutionalized as an implicit national framework that justifies American triumphalism, white supremacy, and ongoing injustices. The result is that the dominant culture idealizes a history of discovery, opportunity, expansion, and equality, while minority communities have been traumatized by colonization, slavery, segregation, and dehumanization. Healing begins when deeply entrenched beliefs are unsettled. Charles and Rah aim to recover a common memory and shared an understanding of where we have been and where we are going. As other nations have instituted truth and reconciliation commissions, so do the authors call our nation and churches to a truth-telling that will expose past injustices and open the door to conciliation and true community.

    Default Richard Wolff Proves Medicare For All Saves Money

    The rest of the world has resolved the provision of healthcare and wealth taxes, but not in the US.

    Health in the whole of Europe is provided by the state, yet the US seems incapable (or unwilling?) to respond to the demands of the population for a quality, free health service.

    Richard Wolff explains what needs to be done to resolve this in the United States.

    And how many people are employed to prevent your payments being made and others who argue with them. Imagine the savings if those people were not needed?

    Default What Happens When Families Are Separated By The Border?

    What really happens to people caught in Trump's Mexico family separation scheme? Discover more from the book 'Separated by the Border' by Gena Thomas.

    In 2017 five-year-old Julia traveled with her mother, Guadalupe, from Honduras to the United States. Her harrowing journey took her through Mexico in the cargo section of a tractor-trailer.

    Then she was separated from her mother, who was held hostage by smugglers who exploited her physically and financially. At the United States border, Julia came through the processing center as an unaccompanied minor after being separated from her stepdad who was deported.

    Author Gena Thomas tells the story of how Julia came to the United States, what she experienced in the system, and what it took to reunite her with her family. A Spanish-speaking former missionary, Gena became Julia's foster mother and witnessed firsthand the ways migrant children experience trauma.

    Weaving together the stories of birth mother and foster mother, this book shows the human face of the immigrant and refugee, the challenges of the immigration and foster care systems, and the tenacious power of motherly love.

    Default Is Everything On Facebook Fake News? (w/ Judd Legum)

    A report shows that there have been 150 million views of fake US political news on Facebook. Fake news come from both sides, with about two thirds aimed at Democrats.

    The amount of fake news has shown a considerable increase since the 2016 election, which does not give much confidence for 2020. Many of the fake news posts and misinformation are from individuals with fake memes and aimed at making the poster money through advertising.

    Judd Legum joined Thom to discuss the latest on online fake news and whether it is paid-for propaganda.
