NUCLEAR FASCISM IN OHIO

We confront the horrific atomic coup on-going in Ohio with expert/activists PAT MARIDA (Sierra Club), KEVIN KAMPS (Beyond Nuclear) and DONNA GILMORE (SOS). who are in the of thick making the planet green again.

Pat reports from Columbus on the storm trooper tactics being used by pro-nuclear thieves to prevent the gathering of signatures for a certified statewide petition.  The petition is in support of a referendum—certified by the state—to overturn a huge bailout for two nuke reactors (and two coal burners) that are set to explode on Lake Erie.

Kevin tells us that the hugely unpopular theft of ratepayer money perpetrated by the utility’s hired liars (with explicit help from Donald Trump) parallels industry tactics used in New York, New Jersey and Illinois to prop up similar soon-to-explode nukes.   

Donna chimes in with the dire situation in California, where we still can’t get Governor Gavin Newsom to inspect the soon-to-explode atomic reactors at Diablo Canyon.  In time of an earthquake, Diablo would send a radioactive cloud that would utterly destroy Los Angeles, killing millions and bankrupting the state, the nation, the species.

But for now the Ohio battle is all-consuming.  The outcome could actually affect the 2020 presidential election.  This podcast is the alchemical scripture from the dire straits.   Don’t miss it.

Election protection legends JOHN BRAKEY and STEVE ROSENFELD join us to explore major developments in Ohio, North Carolina, Iowa and around the nation.

On the 2020 ballot in Ohio is almost certain to be a referendum aimed at repealing a $150 million/year bailout for two nuke reactors and two coal burners. 
Signatures are being gathered to help kill the extremely unpopular mega-theft.  The repeal might help attract progressive voters and tip the state.

In North Carolina a court has overturned the legislature’s extremely partisan, racist gerrymandering plan.  It’s unclear how will replace it and how, but it’s a big victory.

In Iowa, Rosenfeld has helped convince the Democratic Party to avoid corruptible electronic/internet-based primary voting methods.  It is a big victory with nationwide ramifications.

For a fact-filled, on-point hour on the state of our election process, don’t miss this show.

JEFFREY EPSTEIN REVISITED:  THE EPSTEIN-BARR SYNDROME

Two days before he died, we interviewed BOB FITRAKIS and NICK BRYANT about the horrendous life, awful times and filthy secrets of Jeffrey Epstein.

As you can surmise from this discussion, we were not surprised when he died under predictably mysterious circumstances two days later.

We are here re-running the full-hour interview.  In reviewing the ensuing coverage of Epstein’s death, we have seen nowhere else the investigative detail contained in this deeply disturbing dialogue.

REMEMBER, as revealed here by Bob Fitrakis, that Epstein got his first teaching job from the father of the current attorney general, William Barr.

Be prepared:  this interview is spooky, infuriating and downright terrifying in what it says about the current state of politics in America.

Green Party Presidential hopeful HOWIE HAWKINS joins us to talk with eco-activist MOLLY BASLER about the future of our planet and the NEW GREEN DEAL.

Now that Bernie Sanders is calling for a mega-conversion to a green society, the playing field for saving our planet has been vastly stretched.

In upstate New York, Howie has been a huge force for the shutting atomic power plants and birthing a Solartopian economy.  He has also fought to re-introduce the concepts of democratic socialism to our body politic.

In southern California, Molly has focused powerfully on the need for a vegan diet and a plastic-free consumer economy.

Do not miss this wonderful conversation with these truly great, exceptionally brilliant green activists.

JEFFREY EPSTEIN.  It’s much worse than you think

We speak with experts Bob Fitrakis and Nick Bryant about the hideous sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. 

These brilliant researchers know what’s really at stake here.

THE INDIGENOUS FIGHT FOR GLOBAL SURVIVAL

We are joined in Solartopia by the great Indigenous activists PHYLLIS YOUNGand CHASE IRON EYES of the Lakota Nation.

And by long-time organizer DANNY PAUL NELSON of the Lakota People’s Law Project.

We start with a report from the Democratic candidates’ debate in Detroit, then rapidly hear from Phyllis on the deep spirituality of the Indigenous struggle to save our planet Earth.

Danny then explains much of the legal and political reality of the struggle against the murderous, illegal pipelines being imposed on native lands.

Chase explains the horrific military assault that still proceeds against the Indigenous peoples and their treaty rights.

We also discuss the coming of green energy to the rez, as especially pioneered by the late great Bob Gough.  

This sacred hour is full of wisdom and guidance for a species at the brink of extinction.  Don’t miss it.

MUELLER, SOCIALISM & THE OHIO NUKE BAILOUT

We’re joined by the great LILA F. GARRETT, long-time host of Pacifica’s Connect the Dots; JOE DEMARE, Ohio green activist; and BOB FITRAKIS of the Freepress.org, long-time author and election protection activist.

We start with Lila and a tough discussion of the Mueller Report and the utter incapability of the corporate Democrats to rally toward saving our democracy.  A long-time Mueller critic, Lila makes it clear that defeating fascism in our country will take tremendous organizing and stamina.

Joe takes us through the horrendous bailout now being perpetrated in Ohio by the owners of the Perry and Davis-Besse nuclear reactors, both on the brink of economic ruin, both capable of utterly destroying the entire Great Lakes region.

Bob, a long-time socialist scholar, explains the roots of much of the modern conflict between national socialism/monopoly capitalism and democratic socialism or social democracy.

This is a fascinating, nuanced discussion of some of the most critical issues of our time.  Don’t miss it.

TRUMP AS HITLER / OHIO AS NUKE WASTELAND

As TRUMP channels his inner HITLER we face an insane NUKE BAILOUT IN OHIO that could bankrupt the state and make it a radioactive wasteland.

With BECCA POLLARD of the Ohio Sierra Club, nuke expert MICHAEL KEEGAN of Don’t Waste Michigan, and KEVIN KAMPS of Beyond Nuclear we begin our show with the obligatory exploration of Donald Trump’s attempted fascist putsch.
As a history professor it’s clear Trump is plotting a textbook fascist takeover, complete with race hate, violence and contempt for democracy.  It is time to use the “H” word (Hitler) and to be prepared .  

We then cover the criminal $150 million/year robbery being attempted by FirstEnergy to "bail out” the decayed, destructive, bankrupt nukes that are super-heating Lake Erie and all around them.

The scam FirstEnergy has been running on the Legislature was expected to be complete by now.  But continued resistance and various glitches have delayed the next vote until August 1, giving citizen activists a chance to defeat it.

As our planet roasts, this extremely critical battle will go a long way to determining the human future.  We get right to the bottom of it with these three great guests.

5G WILL KILL US ALL

We’re joined by cell tower/phone experts Dr. Trevor Marshall, Carol Taccetta and Diane Rother to discuss the horrific threat to humankind posed by the spread of cell towers & phones, and the new plague of 5G.

Dr. Marshall, Ph.D.,  is one of the world’s leading researchers on the biological impacts of microwave radiation on the human body.  Based in southern California, Carol has been involved with the issue for decades.  Diane is a holistic health practitioner based in Minnesota.

The 1994 Telecommunications Act banned local communities from fighting cell towers on the basis of health concerns.  The potential impacts on the human race as a whole are horrifying.  

Cell phone/tower technology is being deployed worldwide with virtually no independent health research done on its potential impact to the human species.  Early indicators are not good.  Highly significant symptoms of physical and mental disease are starting to show in with the spread of unregulated cell towers and the indiscriminate use of cell phones throughout our society.

The early reports are absolutely terrifying.  You will not want to miss these early warnings from some our most important experts.
