Hi Thom. I heard that your letter to Louise made it out. I have a contact that is a guard here in the Seditious Negro Supermax Wing of the facility (SNSW) and he has assured me that this kite will make it to your cellblock. When I contacted you last, my lawyers had filed a last minute appeal on my execution that was denied. They tried to get the supreme court to hear the case, but Chief Justice Marjorie Taylor Greene rejected the Writ of Certiorari. Right now I am scheduled for the firing squad next month as they are killing brothers at a clip of about five per month just in this facility alone. Seems like yesterday we were on the air talking vicariously of this happening (though neither of us really believed it). Night of long knives all day long.

Gotta go, man. If I don't get a chance to say farewell, I'll see you on the other side.

Sorry Thom, but I'm afraid you have underestimated the extent of the predictable violence and death that would follow a second Trump inauguration. Someone who is known to have the kind of influence you have would not live to write home from prison. You are much too dangerous to a paranoid dictator such as Trump. I wish all this were exaggerated or an impossible scenario. God punishes those who are unwilling to submit to his decrees and to carry out his will without mercy and without concerns for his image. Vengeance is mine saith the Lord.

Brave New World? We’d better pray this doesn’t become reality. I have grand- and great grandchildren who deserve a life!

Hi Thom,

I was sorry to hear that you had not been released or escaped.

I know I offered to help you find refuge here if things went south there, but there is no refuge here now, either.

Prime Minister Braverman was emboldened by Trump's seizure of power and after Rishi Sunak was assassinated she seized power herself and declared martial law.

She ordered all immigrants and protesters she did not agree with shot.

The homeless and sick have been rounded up and put in workhouses.

Anyone who has been critical of her - and there were many of us on Twitter - have been jailed, often on barges like the Bibby Stockholm. Those guilty of alpha male style crimes like sexual abuse have all been released or spared jail, including many Tories, to make room for us. I'm on the run at the moment but sooner or later someone supplying me on the black market with stoma supplies will give me away, and I won't be able to afford them for much longer anyway.

Most of the media was already right wing or cowed, but now the left wing media, what little there was of it, has either been closed down or given to a right wing oligarch, and the journalists jailed.

She hasn't dared touch any right wing extremists with a significant number of followers like Nigel Farage, so they are all trying to outdo each other in their extremism, which is scary.

Let's hope that Trump and Braverman piss off so many people that their leadership collapses, and that China and Saudi Arabia are not waiting in the wings to fill the vacuum.

I hope to see you on the other side of these annos horribilis.

Best to Louise.

Thom, this made me cry, and it lit a fire under my arse to do more, much more with WI Dems. I've been active my entire life, and I 100% believe this will be our reality. However, it was this letter to your amazing wife that hit home just how close we are to a life we cannot fathom. Thanks for "tagging" me. I'm it! I'm it! I'm in and getting more active! Your an accent to life, Thom Hartmann! Be well, great man! Love & light from Madison, WI! Xoxo-Frances

I do not think that this predictive essay is too far off base, and it sets up a terrifying scenario.

My greatest fear is that all of the Republican actions and laws passed in state legislatures, especially where they have a veto proof majority, will re install Trump in the White House. I'm talking of voter suppression, and voter nullification, not to mention that death threats have driven honest election officials to flee their jobs, and guess who is replacing them? Violent, zombie MAGGOTS, Even in blue California.

Hollister, CA is a small sleepy town, sits astride the San Andreas, Fault, and it is also the county seat of San Benito, Co., and it is Democratic. After Trump launched his insurrection, the election officials were violently threatened, told they knew who where they lived, and sent pics of the family.

Result they resigned and guess who now holds the positions, the only ones that would not be threatened with loss of life and limb,: Trump traitors.

What I fear is that this is a scenario that is being played out across the country. It is a given that the south and Midwest are, as they were last time, in the tank for Trump, but the efforts of voter suppression and even vote counting fraud, have reached into blue and swing states.

I fear that there will be massive voter fraud and suppression in blue and swing states, this time, and there is nothing to be done about it, certainly not by Garlands Department of Justice, who by all appearances will do what it did last time, sit idly by, and let hell rain down on you, I and this country.

Tragic propaganda shifting blame for our country's woes and the destabilizing influences of the weapons clearinghouse known as NATO and the mass executioners known as our military industrial complex onto other countries. As Thom shouts down those who come on his show talking about history or discussing valid concerns regarding Biden's war cabinet, we have an article fearmongering about Putin taking over Europe when Biden liberals including Thom find endless pleasure in pointing out what a paper tiger Putin's military is. So which one is it? The Domino Theory or an incompetent military that can't even conquer the country adjacent to it? Should we continue weaponizing the region and developing more deadly nukes as the Doomsday Clock draws nearer to the end or do we continue the talks between Zelensky and Putin from March of 2022 that were interrupted by Biden's messenger Boris Johnson? The chilling part is that Putin and Trump are symptoms of our militarism, imperialism and exceptionalism which are promoted by Democrats and Republicans alike.

All this is in accordance with what Trump has called "Project 2025", according to Isaac Arnsdorf's article in the Washington Post. Here's a short Youtube video confirming it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pvs6jnRndqo

Thom. I'm writing in hopes that you are well. I've been able to evade the Civil Obedience Compliance Force with a little luck, and a whole lot of BS. It would be untruthful if I told you things were simply bad.

What I want to tell you is most of the people I've come across who were duped by Trump and Putin are deeply, tragically, regretful for their part in the rise of the MAGA cultastrophe. The remorse is never spoken of course, but it is obvious in their once wildly hypnotized eyes - now reduced to nothing more than craters of suffocating sorrow. It didn't take long for them to realize their usefulness had come to an end. We are united now, if only by despair.

With Mike Johnson having successfully installed Trump as indefinite Czar of RF - West (we knew it as The United States of America) and Mike Flynn's relentlessly grotesque enforcement of Trump's rule, there wasn't much need for the sheep anymore. When it dawned on them, despite many a bumper sticker's claim, that they were in fact not lions, but rather useful idiots - it was too late. In a marvel of irony, those oh-so precious guns they believed were the vanguard of their liberty, were actually confiscated last month - because "peace" had been achieved (although through very violent means), there was no longer a need for them it was explained.

And I suppose it is peaceful now - peaceful in the spirit of a morgue, or hospice care - save for the night raids into enclaves of suspected "non-patriots" where private security firms unleash their highly paid and highly violent squads. I won't recount the horrors of their visits - anyone familiar with war knows there exist no boundaries to the barbarism .

To be blunt, Thom, we're all sick - most are starving - those "lucky" enough to find work soon find their end, as their production withers rapidly under the sun of 16-hour shifts. I wish I had something positive to say, but all I feel is sorrow. We had our chance. We all should have done more. We all needed to embrace the inconvenient moments that came before this living death - perhaps if more of us had, we wouldn't be here now. After all, we were foretold.

My best to you, Thom - and your loved ones. I know I've mentioned it before, but we're still working hard on fundraising to purchase you a pardon. The fee has increased to 1,000,000,000,000 rubles. It might be a little while, but we'll get there.

Kindest Regards,

J Notabot

Send this to the Washington Post, New York Times, NPR, CNN, ABC, CBS, BBC, Politicol and to anyone who will listen. Heed these predictions before it is too late. Trump as president should terrify everyone with a brain.

Great article. I think the fascist robber barons who are globalist autocrats will get rid of the minimum wage and all of the useless eaters also. I don't think the immigrants will be shot at the river, I think they will turn around and head back. Biden and the GOP has let in millions since 1980, spread them all over the US to help the autocrats attain slave labor. Sex slaves, cancer, torture, organ harvesting and starvation dead ahead. Even the maggots won't fare well because they are poor and want a living wage. This is an unlimited greed capitalists Utopia.

Good luck to you too. I am an American born British-Irish citizen presently living in Northern Ireland. The DUP currently stopping democratic governance from functioning here with British state support, are made up of christo fascist fundamentalists and MAGA followers. My main focus is on expiditing their political demise !
