> PROF. ROBERT FITRAKIS fills us in on the long, dangerous history of Trump’s reliance on the Russian mob throughout his career in finance and real estate.  Fitrakis warns in his latest writings, including THE STRIP & FLIP DISASTER OF AMERICA’S STOLEN ELECTIONS, that Trump owes Putin and the Russian underworld too much money, and that they have too many secrets on him, to bode well for America’s future.
> We also explore the stolen elections of 2000 and 2004, as well as 2016, and speculate on why muilti-millionaires like Al Gore, John Kerry and Hillary Clinton have refused to fight for presidencies they clearly won, leaving America’s electoral system in a total shambles.
> Author and election integrity activist MARTA STEELE fills in the details on the 2008 and 2012 elections and how Barack Obama did manage to win despite the corrupted process.  HINT: it had to do with millions of devoted grassroots activists.
> PAUL KANGAS also joins us to report on his recent travels in Putin’s Russia, and on a new French Ph.d. program offering advanced studies in climate change with expenses-paid sojourns in Paris.

We’re joined by JOHN BRAKEY, legendary election protection activist in Arizona.  John fills us in first on the breaking
news of Arizona Senator John McCain’s illness and its potential impact on politics in that state.
We’re then joined by green business pioneer MITCH ROFSKY for a wide-ranging discussion of how Kris Kobach and Trump’s
Jim Crow “Election Commission” has been tasked with stripping registration rolls throughout the US and guaranteeing that blacks,
Hispanics, Asian-Americans, Muslims, students, the elderly and other non-millionaires do not get the chance to vote.  
Election hacking by Russians makes it clear it can and has been done more easily by American secretaries of state and other
partisan officials intent on keeping gerrymandered seats safe for incumbents.
Mitch also tells us about his Better World auto club and on-going attempts to do socially responsible ratings on the widest possible
range of consumer items….including our elections.

STOPPING NUKE SUBSIDIES & GOING MICRO-GRID IN OHIO & EVERYWHERE is our Solartopian talk today as we're joined by NED FORD and PAT MARIDA of the Ohio Sierra Club, and energy expert MARK SOMMER, a former Ohioan now based in California.
Because Ohio is a bellwether, the attempt by FirstEnergy and other fossil/nuke dinosaurs to gouge massive public subsidies could decide much of America's energy policy.  Massive nuke handouts are scheduled in New York and Illinois, but are being resisted in Ohio, which could turn the tide.
Ohio also has spectacular wind resources which are begin quashed by the utility-owned legislature, but which could create thousands of jobs and billions of cheap kilowatts that could clean the rust off Ohio's industrial belt.
And as we learn from Mark Sommer, the advent of micro-grids could turn the Buckeye State into a cyber-secure bastion of energy independence.  
Don't miss this blueprint of how Ohio could be again the Heart of it All:  this time in Solartopia.

Solartopia depends on an actual democracy, and we no longer have one.
Columnist BOB KOEHLER, author JON SIMON and Georgia-base election activist GARLAND FAVORITO tell us warn us about the destruction of our electoral process.
We start with the ridiculous panel Trump has appointed to investigate “voter fraud.”  This gang of thieves includes the very worst election abusers in modern America.
We then cover the GOP “victory” in the Georgia 6th district which was clearly stolen.
Why won’t the corporate media or the Democratic Party say anything about this?  Join us to find out.

The Ohio legislature may be on the brink of rejecting FirstEnergy’s request for billions in handouts to keep its failed nuke reactors operating.  As much as $4 billion in wind projects is set to go for northern Ohio.
Will this tipping point in the nation’s bellweather state send America's energy balance deep into Solartopia?
US renewables now generate more juice than nukes  So we host DICK MUNSON of the Environmental Defense Fund, PAT MARIDA of the Ohio Sierra Club and KEVIN KAMPS of Beyond Nuclear to dissect the reactor bailouts in Ohio, Illinois and New York where the future of atomic energy will be decided.  At least half the 99 reactors still licensed in the US are losing money. 
 If these three states reject these massive radioactive bailout, nuke power’s death spiral will significantly deepen.  
Let’s hope!!!

We are joined by election integrity activists Deb Arnason, John Brakey, Mimi Kennedy & Bob Fitrakis to sift through the wreckage of yet another D failure (this one in Georgia) due to election theft.

From vote flipping electronic machines to the stripping of voter rolls and much more, the Trump GOP has once again made of mockery of our democracy.

Don’t miss this riveting, infuriating post mortem for a party & our democracy.

MASSIVE ELECTION THEFT BY THE RUSSIANS AND OTHERS is the Earth-shattering reality we deal with to get to Solartopia.

Legendary election integrity activists MIMI KENNEDY, JOHN BRAKEY and BOB FITRAKIS join in to dissect the fact that our elections are being stolen and that Donald Trump is the hideous result.

Thankfully, there are solutions on the horizon.  If you are at all vested in the future of democracy, don’t miss this show.

INSANE BAILOUTS FOR DEAD NUKES come to the anti-Solar war chest in the form of $7.6 billion in NY, $2.3 billion in IL, $5+ billion in Ohio and much more.

These bailouts are scams for utilities owning nukes that should be shut down immediately.  The money is tied to nothing except the personal profits of the mega-rich executives and stockholders perpetrating this fraud.

Two great safe energy stalwarts come to Solartopia to dissect this disaster.  KARL GROSSMAN, legendary author, professor, journalist and activist, tells us how green forces won on Long Island and how such victories can be duplicated today.  KEVIN KAMPS of BEYOND NUCLEAR fills us in on the situation in Illinois, Ohio, Michigan and other states where greedy nuke-based utilities are fleecing the public while keeping increasingly dangerous nukes on the brink of Chernobyl roulette.

Thankfully, a grassroots movement may defeat the bailout in Ohio, and court cases are proceeding against the one in New York.  To get the inside scoop on perhaps the most critical battle of our lifetime, in which future Fukushimas are prevented or subsidized, be sure to listen in to these two great expert/activists.

NULLIFICATION OF THE 2016 ELECTION BY NON-VIOLENT MEANS is the banner headline at Solartopia today.

As the increasingly dangerous disaster of the Trump fiasco deepens, we are joined by long-time activists DON GOLDMACHER and BOB FITRAKIS to discuss survival strategies.

DON is a life-long Berkeley-based grassroots campaigner and film producer.   BOB is my co-author on the new STRIP & FLIP DISASTER OF AMERICA’S STOLEN ELECTIONS (

As we see impeachment being an unlikely outcome of Trump’s massive misbehavior, we search for alternative routes.  Impeachment would empower a Gang of Four including Mike Pence, Paul Ryan, Rex Tillerson and Mitch McConnell.

Redoing the 2016 election would provide an actual choice of competent alternatives, but there is no Constitutional provision for this and no historical record of it ever happening.

Maybe it’s time to make one!

Solartopia is joined by the great HAZEL HENDERSON, legendary pioneer of the green economy.

 Hazel’s clarity and brilliance light up the airwaves as we tour through the rise of the alternative economy, green investing and much more.

 Hazel’s prescient work in renewable forecasting, ethical investing and sustainable finance has stood the test of a transitional time.

She now predicts ever greater things for the alternative worldview.  This hour flies by!!!
