ELECTION PROTECTION ON THE BRINK       

In the face of an election Donald Trump is desperately trying to steal (while claiming the reverse) we speak with three of the great crusaders for our right to vote.

ANDREA MILLER of People Demanding Action is working full time to check voter registration rolls and re-instate the millions that the Trump Cult has stripped.

ALAN MINSKY of Progressive Democrats of America is also working with this great natonal grassroots PDA organization to protect our elections in key states and make sure the people’s voice is heard.

JOEL SEGAL of the National Emergency COVID response group has helped us organize our weekly zoom gatherings to provide a national-state-county network for protecting the vote, and is working on a wide range of desperately needed social responses to the terrors of the Trumpocalypse.  .

Together these three great activists are bringing the fight over the 2020 election to a level where the people might actually triumph.  Do join us to find out how!

VOTE BY MAIL & MAYA CUMMINGS

 
 
Our talk today is about Vote By Mail and the insane attack by Trump on our rights to a full and fair election.

Maya also tells us of her demands for national health care, social justice, racial equality and much more.
 
She is, as Joel says, a national treasure.  And this national election is our ultimate challenge.  Don’t miss this show!!

VOTING BY MAIL IN COLORADO….& MOVING THE WORLD TO RENEWABLES   

We are joined by the legendary AMORY LOVINS who tells us from his totally solar-heated home in Colorado how it goes to vote by mail.

Hint:  IT WORKS GREAT!!!

Amory then explains as only he can how the transition to a green-powered Earth has proceeded since 1975 with epic success.

In 1975 Amory & I attended the  TOWARD TOMORROW FAIR at UMass/Amherst, where he helped introduce the broad overview that has guided us toward the sustainability we will need to survive as a species.

We are also joined by legendary activists JENNIFER ROBERTS & JOEL SEGAL, who are working from North Carolina to secure safe, secure and sustainable elections.

This show has some technical difficulties and will be our last done with telephones, as we now transition to zoom.  Our apologies for the rough audio quality; the content, however, could not be better. 

We will have Amory, Jennifer and Joel back together again!!!

TRUMP IS KILLING WORKERS WHILE MICHAEL MOORE ASSAULTS RENEWABLES

 
 
We are joined by BUZZFLASH.COM editor/publisher MARK KARLIN who explains how Trump is sacrificing the lives of workers in the meat-packing industry.  
 
Trump’s abuse of emergency power, says Karlin, feeds packing-house billionaires while forcing workers to be exposed to the Trump Virus without chance for unemployment insurance.
 
JOEL SEGAL and PROFESSOR MARK JACOBSON then join us to dissect Michael Moore’s horrendous assault on green power.
 
Moore is Executive Producer of PLANET OF THE HUMANS, a grotesquely inaccurate hit job on wind and solar power.
 
Joel Segal worked directly with Michael for many years.  Stanford Prof. Jacobson is one of the world’s top experts on renewable energy.
 
You won’t hear a better dissection of this utterly absurd diatribe anywhere.

EARTH WEEK & STOLEN ELECTIONS

 
We start this Earth Week visit with Green Dream / Solartopian activists ANDREA LEON-GROSSMAN and MOLLY BASLER. 
 
Molly is the Goddess-Mother of Los Angeles's Green Dream campaign to rid the planet of plastics, chemical agriculture, meat eating and all other forms of species-killing pollution.
 
Andrea of Azul.org works to stop fracking in California & elsewhere.  
 
We confront the insane reality that despite oil/gas now having negative value, Trump corporations are continuing to drill and demanding hugs sums of taxpayer money while regular Americans die, starve and go bankrupt.
 
We’re then joined by legendary writer/activists JOEL SEGAL, BOB FITRAKIS & STEVE ROSENFELD.  
 
Joel is a lead convenor of the national COVID 19 EMERGENCY RESPONSE COALITION.  Bob and Steve are covering election theft around the U S and in Ohio.  
 
What they have to tell us about the state of our nation and upcoming elections will shock and dismay you….and hopefully prompt you to take immediate action.
 
Between the destruction of our planet and of our democracy, the future of the human species has never been more endangered.  Join us to find out some key reasons why.

DYING FROM THE TRUMP VIRUS….ESPECIALLY AT US NUKES 

Trump is purposely spreading the Pandemic for reasons of his own says MARK KARLIN, editor/publisher of the popular website BUZZFLASH.com.
 
Karlin estimates at least 80-90% of the TrumpVirus deaths could have been avoided.
 
Those deaths are especially critical at atomic power reactors, where the workforce is being decimated.  
 
With fewer & fewer skilled workers, the industry is forcing staff to work 15 hour shifts, 85 hour weeks while they come down with illness.  
 
As ERIC EPSTEIN, TIM JUDSON & KEVIN KAMPS warn, this is a recipe for catastrophe.
 
An item of very good news—the shutdown of NY’s Indian Point #2—comes admits a terrifying time when atomic energy has become more dangerous than ever.
 
The crisis is being nowhere covered in the major media….except here.  Let’s hope another TMI/Chernobyl/Fukushima is not in the making...
April 3, 2020  

WILL COVID BE OUR ULTIMATE ATOMIC TERRORIST?

The world’s atomic power reactors—our future Three Mile Island, Chernobyl and Fukushimas—depend on an ever-shrinking work force. 

That rare crew of skilled technicians is now threatened by the Coronavirus Pandemic, which in turn threatens the future of our entire species.

We are joined by top experts MAGGIE GUNDERSEN and ARNIE GUNDERSEN of Fairewinds along with PAUL GUNTER of Beyond Nuclear.

These uniquely informed experts take us on a terrifying tour of a corrupt, decayed industry now being decimated by COVID.

Because students have long since ceased entering the industry, the skilled laborers operating, refueling and repairing these nukes is aging and retiring.

COVID is further decimating their ranks.  Given the small size of control rooms, and the realities of making repairs, social distancing is not possible.

The operators “jumpers” and “sponges” are wearing out.

Be sure to be sitting down when you listen to this terrifying and apocalyptic discussion.

ELECTION BREAKDOWN & CORONAVIRUS CATASTROPHE

 
 
We’re joined in crisis time to explore the dual breakdowns of our election protection & health care industries.
 
STEVEN ROSENFELD, BOB FITRAKIS & JOEL SEGAL take us first on a tour of the utter disaster of our core electoral apparatus.  
 
Steve has examined the process in California, Iowa, Nevada, Michigan and elsewhere.  
 
The report is disastrous, with machines breaking down, long lines, paper ballots uncounted and more.  
 
Stripping of the voter rolls and flipping of vote counts as reported by Bob and Joel are also rampant.
 
We then enter the swamp of the Coronavirus and the horrific, lethal non-response of the Trump administration.
 
It’s unable to deal with national health crisis and more than willing to profit from it, a private insurance companies line up for a bonanza.
 
 
And don’t miss this show!

 HOW THE CORPORATE DEMS STEALING THE NOMINATION SO THEY CAN LOSE IN NOVEMBER

With their traditional strip & flip / Jim and Juan Crow voter suppression and vote count theft tactics, the corporate Democrats are doing all they can deny Bernie Sanders the nomination and crush the social movement he has led.

The generational, ethnic and racial turnover in this country and world is totally upon us.  But with Joe Biden as the stalking horse, the corporate Democrats are joining with the Trump GOP to keep Big Money in control.

We’re joined by the great investigative reporter GREG PALAST and legendary activists JOEL SEGAL of JAMN and ALAN MINSKY of PDA to hash it out.

This is the most critical show you’ll hear on what’s REALLY happening with the Democratic parties and the fake nomination of Joe Biden, who is sure to lose to Donald Trump in November.
