COVID-19 NATIONAL EMERGENCY ELECTION PROTECTION ZOOM #11

As our national crisis intensifies, we convene some of America’s leading election protection activists & experts to confront our greatest danger:  the prospect of another stolen election.

We hear from MIMI KENNEDY, DR. MAYA CUMMINGS, REV. GLENCIE RHEDRICK, EMILY LEVY, JOHN BRAKEY, ALAN MINSKY, BOB FITRAKIS, MIKE HERSH and many more.

We have reports from Arizona, Florida, Ohio, New York and many other critical hot spots in the on-going war over American democracy.

Key is a fascinating, in-depth and absolutely critical discussion of the major lawsuit being filed by John Brakey in defense of the electronic ballot images which are being unlawfully discarded
in Florida.  Though federal law requires that such documents must be preserved for 22 months, county election officials are rendering the public blind by denying the digital records that could
produce a quick, highly reliable outcome to all major elections.

Brakey’s complex, compelling suit is almost certain to go to the US Supreme Court.  The Court’s decision in turn could determine whether there is a fair vote count this fall, and whether it is
timely and reliable, with a complete paper backup.

Such a decision would determine whether the 80% of US precincts with electronic ballot imaging machines will in fact use the digital ballot images for the critical vote count, a decision that could
in turn determine the outcome of the election.

John’s in-depth exploration of the lawsuit is essential to understanding what will happen with the counting of ballots through the fall election.

Joel Segal, Dr. Glencie Rhedrick, Jennifer Roberts lead us through the EP uprising in NC.

Dr. Maya Cummings tells us about the catastrophe in the recent MD primary.

We further explore the New York primary, which has yet to report a definitive outcome.

We also discuss various organizations such as Scrutineers, Progressive Democrats of America, People Demanding Action and other organizations ready to work with YOU to save our democracy.

THE TRUMPVIRUS DEATH MARCH & ELECTION PROTECTION 2020

 
The soaring TrumpVirus death plague needlessly kills countless Americans as Trump assaults testing and purposely spreads the plague.  
 
With BUZZFLASH.COM editor/publisher MARK KARLIN we confront the horrifying reality of Trump’s devastating cuts to health services while a terrified nation huddles in disease and fear.
 
JOEL SEGAL explains how Trump uses the Covid nightmare to sabotage fall elections and destroy American democracy.
 
He’s joined by REVEREND GLENCIE REDRICK and WILLIE FLEMMING of the North Carolina Democratic Party, two revered long-time activists at the forefront of protecting what’s left of our national fiber.
 
Together we dissect the terrible crisis of a rampant dictator using a health catastrophe to give himself absolute power.  
 
Be sure to hear these remarkable public citizens guide us toward a survivable outcome.  
June 18, 2020  
In the midst of the most bitterly contested national election in memory, following of primary fiascos in Georgia, Ohio & Wisconsin, we convene the First National Emergency Election Protection Webinar.
 
We dig deep into the details of the all-important Trifecta/Trinity of how this election will proceed:  Voter Registration, Vote by Mail and Counting the Ballots.
 
Broad ideological issues are not at stake here:  we all believe in democracy, which is why we are doing this webinar.  
 
But the election will be decided in the details.  Pro-democracy activists MUST get involved with their local and county election boards to know EXACTLY what is going on.  
 
 
Registration rolls must be checked, Vote by Mail procedures must be confirmed, the vote counts must be monitored.  In 2020 it is not enough just to vote; you MUST be involved on the deepest possible levels.
 
This Webinar aims to make it clear to you just how to do it.  Listen closely, pass it on, and get active!

ELECTION THEFT FROM GEORGIA TO DICTATORSHIP  &

SHUTTING INDIAN POINT & ALL OTHER NUKE REACTORS

We start with the election fiasco in Georgia that is meant as the prototype for the Trump theft of the 2020 election this fall. 

With voting machines designed to fail and eradicated polling stations, the Georgia GOP made sure that thousands of citizens of color could not vote. 

This is Trump’s model for permanent dictatorship in 2020.

We then CELEBRATE the shut-down of Indian Point Nuke #2. 

We’re joined by legendary activists SUSAN SHAPIRO, KEVIN KAMPS, PAUL GUNTER, TIM JUDSON & CYNTHIA FOLKERS who explain the glories of this long-overdue shut-down in great detail.

We’re also joined by Ohio's JOE DE MARE who explains the sickening thieveries of Ohio’s atomic “bailout” and the mobster legislature's latest insane attempt to make Ohio the nation’s radwaste dump.

The nuke industry just stole $1 billion from Ohio ratepayers and used it for stock buybacks.  Ohio could long ago have gotten 100% of its electricity from wind and solar.

Instead the state sinks in a fossil nuclear morass.  And unless American activists can overcome the rigging of its elections, it will only get worse.

TRUMP’S PERSONAL GESTAPO…& ELECTION PROTECTION IN NC

 
 
The nitty-gritty details of the violent battalion that took Trump from his White House bunker to a local church are revealed by Mark Karlin, Editor/Publisher of BuzzFlash.com.  
 
Trump’s goose-steps for his now-infamous Bible photo op were marched through with armed thugs in government uniform without accountability.  They illegally trashed a peaceful demonstration along the way.
Yet the White House refuses to reveal their identity.
 
The presence of an armed battalion accountable only to a dictatorial leader is a terrifying development, unique in US history.  
 
Also unique is the critical importance of the upcoming election.  We are joined by JENNIFER ROBERTS, JOEL SEGAL, COLLETTE ALSTON and BOB PHIILIPS of North Carolina.
 
The stakes in swing state NC could not be great, and each of these powerful guests tells us more about how the election might go there, and what is needed to protect it.
 
As a template for how we save our democracy nationwide, this discussion could not be more critical.

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.  
 
We’re joined by the brilliant MAYA CUMMINGS, now running for the Maryland Congressional seat of her legendary deceased husband Elijah Cummings.
 
Also joining us is JOEL SEGAL, convenor of the National COVID Emergency Response Network.
 
We converse as Trump has gone off the deep end in assaulting the ability of all Americans to cast a ballot in safety and freedom.
 
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.
