WILL THE GOP STEAL THE 2018 ELECTION?

We cover the terrain of how the Trump Republicans can steal the 2018 election. 

 It ranges from rigging the census to stripping the voter rolls, installing flippable machines, eliminating precincts, ending early and Sunday voting, and much more.

We are joined by GREAT experts SUSIE SHANNON (of the Democratic National Committee), DOROTHY REIK (Progressive Democrats of the Santa Monica Mountains), JOHN BRAKEY (the “Brakey Method” of digital scanned ballots) and BOB FITRAKIS (Ohio-based election protection attorney & author).

This is a deep, detailed discussion of what has happened to voting in the US and how it needs to change to prevent a complete fascist takeover in 2018 and 2020.  Don’t miss it.

CALIFORNIA DREAMING:  WILL TRUMP QUIT IF THE DEMS WIN THE HOUSE?

We’re joined in Solartopia by three great California activists to share their take on this week’s primaries.

SUSIE SHANNON (a member of the Democratic National Committee), Climate Hawk RL MILLER, and housing activist LARRY GROSS all have the inside scoop.

We focus mostly on the US Senate candidacy of KEVIN DE LEON, who will face incumbent DIANE FEINSTEIN.  

Should De Leon win, he could shake up the brain-dead corporate Democrats and help finally inaugurate a serious resistance to the Trump Dictatorship.

It’s a big deal….hear all about it, along with other key races in California and around the country in this cutting-edge discusion of this all-important election.

The great JOSH FOX joins us in Solartopia for a terrifying and totally timely excursion into the vampire Gasland of full-on fracking.

A brilliant activist, writer, filmmaker and dramatic presenter, Josh’s supremely articulate attack on the sick business of blowing apart our planet to get at methane is not to be missed.

We cover in this show Josh’s own personal history with the rise of the anti-fracking movement.

We learn of the hugely funded counter-attacks by the fossil fuel industry.

And we take the horror show ride of his brilliant, riveting and ultimately terrifying description of Cambridge Analytica and the extremely sophisticated black art of data mining and public manipulation through Facebook, Google and the corporate internet.

Nominated for two Academy Awards and far more, Josh is full of energy, savvy and hope.  Don’t miss this show….or his presentations on the road and in the theaters.

The ALL-OUT CORPORATE ASSAULT AGAINST THE INDIGENOUS AND THE ENVIRONMENT is what threatens Solartopia as we talk today with the great SARA NELSON & DANNY SHEEHAN.

Danny are Sara are lifelong activists with the ROMERO INSTITUTE. 

 They’re defending in the courts and in the public forum the right of the Dakota Nation to stop horrendously destructive pipelines from ravaging their land and water.

The pipelines cross Indigenous land which does not belong to the United States government or the pipeline companies that are destroying it.  Not surprisingly, Donald Trump and Energy Secretary Rick Perry both have direct financial ties to those who are profiting from this disaster.

Danny are Sara are true national treasures, brilliant, dedicated and effective.  They are defending the great Indigenous activist Chase Iron Eyes, the right of ALL humans to protect their homes... and the sacred Earth on which we all depend.

Don’t miss hearing them in Solartopia.

OHIO IN TROUBLE & ELECTRONIC VOTING MACHINES are where we’re at in Solartopia today.

We start with BOB FITRAKIS who explains the vicious attack  waged by the Corporate Democrats against Dennis Kucinich.  With a boring candidate for governor, the Democrats may drag the superb US Senator Sherrod Brown into the lost column.

We also discuss Bob’s breakthrough work on gerrymandering.

We’re then joined by election protection activists JOHN BRAKEY and RAY LUTZ who fill us in on the progress being made with electronic voting machines that give us both a paper ballot and a digital ballot image.

This show is a primer for the election protection that’s essential to stopping the fascist Trump coup.  Don’t miss it.

ELECTION THEFT & PLASTIC POLLUTION are our Solartopian peaks today as we talk to two of America’s greatest activists.
 
MIMI KENNEDY, world-renown actress (“MOM”) and Chair of Progressive Democrats of America tells us about major new technology that can guarantee ballot images for hand-counted paper ballots.  It’s a critical breakthrough that might allow us to avoid the kinds of stolen elections that have left us with a true crisis of democracy from which we will struggle to recover.
 
Then we hear from DIANNA COHEN, founder of the Plastic Pollution Coalition, which is pioneering the global fight to transition away from fossil feed stock and into bio-renewables.  By 2050, she says, there could by weight be more plastic in the oceans than fish.  Her crusade to get rid of this anti-life scourge is epic, fascinating and vital!
 
Like Mimi, Dianna’s depth of knowledge and commitment are truly awesome.  Don’t miss these interviews.

CHERNOBYL at 32 is the tragic theme of today’s sojourn in Solartopia.  

> We try to grasp the full meaning of a catastrophe that may have killed more than a million people, has created “zombie forests” that do not decay and has warped the genetic code of humans and other animals for generations to come.

> LINDA PENTZ-GUNTER, PAUL GUNTER and CINDY FOKKERS of BEYOND NUCLEAR dissect the horrendous radioactive landscape that has emerged from Chernobyl’s apocalyptic fallout.

> Among much more, downwind lands are still too radioactive to farm.  Wild as well as domesticated animals are too contaminated to consume.  And even after three decades the possibility of another major catastrophe at the Chernobyl site remains very real.

> These three brilliant, pathbreaking experts make it clear that in the wake of this horrifying disaster, which essentially brought down the Soviet Union, much of Europe has fled the “nuclear option” and gone rapidly to wind and solar.  Most importantly, Germany is on path to shut all its reactors by 2022 and to break into an advanced economy based entirely on renewables.  

> But with still more radioactive nightmares pouring into our air and water at Fukushima, and with things far from over in Ukraine, we can only shudder at what might happen if we fail to shut all reactors before the next Chernobyl hits our planet,

BLACKOUT IN PUERTO RICO, GLOBAL WARMING WORLDWIDE are on the menu today.

Two great activists lead the discussion  

JOEL SEGAL of North Carolina tells us the shocking truth about two new grid collapses in Puerto Rico which have caused, among other things, a critical nationwide shortage of pain killers morphine and delaudid.

Anti-fracking leader DAVID BRAUN explains how this horrifying gas extraction technique is destroying land and water tables California and elsewhere.  David was instrumental in winning New York’s ban on fracking and hopes to do it again in the Golden State.

These are two brilliant, unique expert/activists.  Do not miss this show.

NUKE REACTORS ARE SHUTTING & ELECTIONS ARE BEING STOLEN.

We start in Solartopia with legendary activists TIM JUDSON and KEVIN KAMPS telling us about TWENTY (of 100) US nuke reactors on the brink of shut-down and/or being bailed out.  Challenges everywhere are being waged by a wide range of grassroots environmental and consumer organizations

Four reactors in northern Ohio and Pennsylvania will shut if we can stop Donald Trump from handing them an $8 billion bailout.  Four more will shut in New York State if we can defeat Andrew Cuomo’s $7.6 billion bailout in court.  .

Three more reactors are being bailed out in Illinois.  At least nine more have near-term shut-down dates, again subject to demands by their owners for outrageous bailouts.  Join us to hear the whole list, and how you can help us win a nuke-free nation.

At the half-hour, we talk with JOHN BRAKEY about ELECTION THEFT.

Major lawsuits are being waged in Ohio and elsewhere demanding some kind of accountability in our voting process.  John has pioneered the “Brakey Method” of using universally available electronic ballot images as a backup to the voting process.  

Unless the electoral process is made transparent to the public, all the big hopes for a counter-balance to the madness in the White House will go nowhere.
