For the third and final show of this series we're again joined by world-renown election protection expert BOB FITRAKIS to discuss what we can expect in the presidential and other elections of 2016.

The answer is clear:  we can expect the unexpected.

In particular, given the fact that the nation's electronic voting machines---and thus the ultimate vote count---are in the hands of the GOP, HILLARY CLINTON would need a VERY substantial majority to be able to claim the White House.

The only visible way that could happen at this point would be for DONALD TRUMP to run as a third party candidate, siphoning off votes from the Republicans as did ROSS PEROT in 1992.  That was how BILL CLINTON got into the White House then, and it may be Hillary's only chance now.

We also talk about how Ohio Governor JOHN KASICH illegitimately won election in 2010, and how the GOP stole the US Senate in 2014.

This will all be part of Bob & Harvey's upcoming WHY HILLARY CAN'T WIN.  Listen now, see it soon!!!

World-renowned election protection expert BOB FITRAKIS joins us again from central Ohio to further explore the electronic challenges facing any non-Republican candidate for president and other office in 2016.  

The safe assumption that Hillary Clinton will be the Democratic nominee makes it incumbent upon us all to explore how the election is likely to be stolen.  Our experience with mainstream Democrats like Ms. Clinton, Al Gore and John Kerry indicates that as in 2000 and 2004, they are likely to do nothing to expose the obvious manipulation and theft of our voting process.  

So as members of the Green Party, Dr. Fitrakis and HarveyW discuss the various steps that could be taken to protect the process in 2016. Harvey was a plaintiff and Bob the lead attorney in the successful King-Lincoln-Bronzeville federal lawsuit that exposed much of what had been done to steal the 2004 election.  In this series we prepare for the next round of battle in an electoral system that is yet again on the brink of being bought, rigged, lynched and flipped.

World-renowned election protection expert BOB FITRAKIS joins us in Solartopia to analyze the history of election theft in the US and to explain why Hillary cannot get elected in 2016.

The reason is simple: the electronic voting machines are rigged.

This first of two shows outlines the rise of electronic voting and its intimate links to the Bush family, dating back to the 1988 election which Bush One stole first from Bob Dole, then from Mike Dukakis.

We track the progress of electronic voting machines through the thefts of 2000 and 2004.

If you believe in democracy and your blood doesn’t boil while listening to this, check your pulse.

KEVIN KAMPS joins us from BEYOND NUCLEAR to fill us in on the latest developments in the fight to shut the atomic reactor business.  With nuke owners begging legislatures in Illinois and Ohio for bailouts, and for help in dealing with radioactive waste, this “too cheap to meter” technology never looked more bankrupt.

Then GREENPEACE co-founder REX WEYLER talks to us about stricken singer JONI MITCHELL.  And about the rise and current prosperity of one of the world’s great environmental organizations.  

It’s always a joy to talk to these two great activists.  JOIN US!!!

PAUL KRASSNER, America's pioneer investigative satirist, takes us partway through his astonishing career.  

We begin with a violin concerto alone on the stage of Carnegie Hall at age 6. Paul spins us through how he scratched an itchy leg with his other foot, drawing the laughs that would define his career.

We meet him at MAD Magazine and carry through the founding of The Realist, American's first adult satirical periodical.  
We meet Lennie Bruce, Allen Ginsberg, Abbie and Anita Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Tom Hayden and a host of those who've shaped our nation.

We also take an LSD trip on the witness stand of the Chicago 8 Conspiracy Trial, and much more.

At 83, Paul is a national treasure.  Be sure to hear the beginnings of his amazing story, which we will continue at a later date….

We talk with BECCA CLAASSEN and DR. JERRY BROWN of the World Business Academy in Santa Barbara about the latest catastrophe from King CONG (Coal, Oil, Nukes, Gas) as tens of thousands of gallons of oil spill onto pristine California beaches.

For years the region's citizens fought off shore drilling there.  Now, exactly what they predicted has happened---a pipeline company has spewed its crude all over the beaches and into the ocean, killing marine life and harming our planet with still more poisons.

Meanwhile, the company's owners go scott-free.

At the same time new revelations about earthquake faults surrounding Diablo Canyon have upped the ante on those shaky reactors' license.  Amidst chaos and death, we grow ever closer to shutting that horrific power plant.

Listen how from these two great activists, as we struggle to save the eco-systems without which we cannot survive.

A NUKE-FREE SOUTH PACIFIC and the END TO ATOMIC POWER in California and elsewhere is the domain of JIM HEDDLE and MARY BETH BRANGAN of the Ecological Options Network of Bolinas, California (

Mary Beth and Jim tell us first of their award-winning documentary on the resistance of the people of Palau against the incursion of the US nuclear military into their South Sea paradise.  For their troubles, EON was blacklisted by the Reagan Administration but has persevered over the years and is now at the forefront of documenting the fight to end atomic energy in California and make it a Solartopian reality.

EON continues to document the fight to deal with the radioactive waste from the thankfully shut San Onofre reactors, and to force Diablo to obey the law on issues of water quality, seismic safety and fire protection (

With their brilliant insights and rich history, Jim and Mary Beth's EON operation both documents and makes history (, and we're honored to hear them tell us how.

Yet another EXPLOSION AT INDIAN POINT has threatened the entire New York/New England region with a RADIOACTIVE APOCALYPSE.

Another transformer has yet again blown up at Entergy’s rogue reactors on the Hudson River some 40 miles north of Manhattan.

More than $8 TRILLION worth of damage could have followed along with more HUMAN DEATH AND INJURY than could ever be calculated.

Long-time expert activists SUSAN HITO SHAPIRO, GARY SHAW and JUDY ALLEN give us a Solartopian hour’s worth of absolutely essential information on this catastrophe that nearly happened but still lurks in the balance at these unlicensed, unmanageable and unconscionable atomic reactors that YOU can help shut down RIGHT NOW!!!!

The escalating campaign to LEGALIZE CANNABIS is the work of our superb guest ERIC STERLING, President of the Criminal Justice Policy Foundation and a commissioner on the Maryland state commission implementing medical Cannabis there.

Eric first testified for legalizing cannabis to the Pennsylvania legislature more than four decades ago. He recalls for us the 1972 Schafer Commission, authorized by Congress and appointed by Richard Nixon, that advocated decriminalization. Nixon did his best to suppress the recommendations, which came from a blue-ribbon commission led by a Republican Governor of Pennsylvania. But 43 years later, after more than a million arrests, its wisdom is obvious.

With his decades of leadership on the issue, Eric takes us through the realities of legalization on Colorado and Washington, as well as the recent authorization of medical cannabis in Puerto Rico. He emphasizes that the term marijuana was adopted in the 1930s as a race-based stigmatization for cannabis, which has been used by humankind for a wide range of purposes for many millennia.

Eric also emphasizes the racial and political injustices still being perpetrated by a Drug War whose primary function has been to keep the rich in power while demonizing and disenfranchising those of youth and color.

If youre at all interested in our drug laws, the process of legalizing cannabis and the realities of our criminal justice system, dont miss this show!

The fabulous, fascinating FREDA SIDEROFF joins us to describe the GARIFUNA FILM FESTIVAL ( )upcoming May 22-25 in Venice, California.  Freda is a member of the indigenous Garifuna culture, one million humans strong, based largely in the Caribbean regions of St. Vincent, Belize, Guatemala and Honduras….but with “diaspora” representatives through the western hemisphere.    

Currently a resident of Topanga Canyon, Freda tells us in transcendent detail about the ethereal nature of the Garifuna culture, which dates back way before Columbus, has been mixed with African immigration,  and continues to thrive throughout the Americas.
Her festival is a celebration of indigenous cultures, featuring the likes of ALUNA, a gorgeous exploration of native resistance to the destruction of our planet.  GARIFUNA MEDICINE tells us about an indigenous hospital in rural central America, completely off-grid, powered entirely by solar energy.  
The festival also features a talk from Joseph Paulino, the police chief of the San Bernardino City School System, himself a Garifuna.  And a performance by Danza Temachtia Quetzalcoatl, the resident Aztec dance group at Tia Chucha’s Centro in the San Fernando Valley.
Needless to say, Freda is a brilliant representative of a  beautiful nature-based culture with much to offer to a mass society poised on the brink of self-destruction.
