With my long-time co-conspirator BOB FITRAKIS of we study the history of electronic voting machines as presented to the political science profession in a breakthrough moment where mainstream academia seems finally to be taking seriously the theft of our elections.  An attorney and full professor, Fitrakis’s pioneer work on the electronic debasement of what’s left of our democracy is key to our understanding how we wound up with the corrupt, insane Donald Trump in the White House.
We're also joined by KEVIN KAMPS of to dissect the latest pro-fossil/nuke “report” from Energy Secretary Rick Perry (Texas’s former “Governor Good-Hair”) fomenting the obscene absurdity that somehow renewable energy must defer to Trump’s polluters destroying the Earth.  In tandem we discuss Ohio Republican Governor John Kasich’s opposition to a massive bailout for decayed nuke reactors in Ohio versus New York Democrat Andrew Cuomo’s support for a massive bailout of four reactors in upstate New York.  
Along the way we also visit the NFL and COLIN KAEPERNICK’s spreading protest, putting forth a demand that we exchange the racist, pro-slavery Star-Spangled Banner for something better, like THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND.  The concussions dealt by the intense military presence at pro football games are damaging our national soul, and need to be replaced by the rising tide of progressive athletic consciousness now sweeping the sports world.

We spend our hour in solartopia with the great
Peace activist David Swanson talking to us from the belly of the beast. 
David has observed the chaos and bloodshed in charlottesville firsthand. 
His insights and opinions on Trump, racism, activism and violence are not to be missed. 
This is a priceless hour with a uniquely important American commentator right from the front.

Following a successful “Nagasaki / Nixon Day” gathering ( ) aimed at abolishing nuke weapons and removing Donald Trump, we are joined by three great activist/experts in discussing the clear and present danger of a nuclear apocalypse…and how to prevent it from happening.
Long-time Santa Monica-based JERRY RUBIN is joined by author/activist LANCE SIMMONS, and radio/TV analyst PROF. PETER MATHEWS as we run through the catalog of dire possibilities.
In contrast with John Kennedy during the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962, the current occupant of the White House has no moral compass, and no intellectual capacity worthy of handling the complexities of global arrears.  His threats against North Korea have been needless, juvenile and supremely dangerous.  He seems to have no idea or concern for the billions of lives he could destroy.  
Along with the need to unify our opposition to Trump’s insanity, we discuss the possibilities of nationwide rallies, a general strike, impeachment and more….I
If you are as on edge as the rest of us, don’t miss this show.

THE MONUMENTAL COLLAPSE OF THE VC SUMMER NUKE PROJECT is explained by long-time activists TOM CLEMENTS of Friends of the Earth in Columbia, South Carolina, and PAUL GUNTER of Beyond Nuclear in our nation’s capital.

The cancellation of the huge double-reactor construction project drops the number of commercial reactors being built in the US to just two, which are the Vogtle reactors in neighboring Georgia.  As Clements and Gunter explain, like the now-dead Summer project, Vogtle is also massively over budget and years overdue.  The bankruptcy of Westinghouse and the weakness of its parent company, Toshiba, forced the VC Summer cancellation and could soon do the same to Vogtle.

Should Vogtle be cancelled, the US would have zero reactors under construction for the first time since the 1950s, opening the door to a real transition to Solartopia, based on decentralized and community-owned green power.

Don’t miss hearing these brilliant long-time activists spell out how this shut-down has happened, and what is likely to come next in the fast-transforming world of energy.
