September 17, 2020  

Ballots are in the mail, & in some places early voting has begun.

 
This ARMAGEDDON ELECTION will determine whether Donald Trump will obliterate our democracy, make himself dictator for life and end our species’ ability to survive on this planet.
 
We cover in deep detail the critical issues surrounding the conduct of the election in NORTH CAROLINA, SOUTH CAROLINA, OHIO, MICHIGAN, WISCONSIN, PENNSYLVANIA and elsewhere.  
 
The right to vote, and to have those votes counted, is under total assault.  Nowhere are the details of how to protect this election discussed in greater detail than on these zoom calls.
 
We are further joined by BOB FITRAKIS and GARY KRANE to examine possible non-violent responses to Trump’s promised refusal to leave the White House even if he loses the election.  
Key to our discussion is the possibility of a GENERAL STRIKE, whose history as an effective tactic of social change and resistance Bob explains.
 
This is our 17th exploration of the electoral emergency we face, as explained at the www.grassrootsep.org website.  Don’t miss it.  
September 10, 2020  
We use this hour in Solartopia to dig deep into the hard realities of this apocalyptic election.
 
We’re joined by STEVE ROSENFELD, JOEL SEGAL & BOB FITRAKIS, three of America's leading experts on exactly what is happening at the nuts-and-bolts grassroots of an electoral contest that has already begun.
 
With votes now being cast in parts of the country, we look under the hood in North Carolina, Ohio and elsewhere at exactly how this election is being manipulated and what dangerous and often insidious means are being used to twist its meaning and outcome.
 
Apparently "small details" like recounting deadlines, screening of incoming absentee ballots and vote count minutiae could make all the difference November 3.  Don’t miss this vital discussion.

STOPPING OHIO'S BRIBED NUKES & UNBLOCKING NORTH COAST WIND

The astonishing $60 million nuke-powered bribery scandal in Ohio has opened the door for a game-changing return of wind power to Ohio.

Six years ago corrupt legislators inserted a setback clause in the Ohio Code that has blocked $4 billion in wind development along the North Coast.
With revolutionized technology installation of turbines in the flat, breezy farmlands stretching from Indiana to Pennsylvania along Lake Erie could power the entire state while creating thousands of jobs.

Legendary wind developer DAN JUHL explains the details of how lifting one simple sentence from Ohio’s law books could create an economic and ecological bonanza while helping to shut two decrepit nukes likely to explode at any moment.
