ELECTION THEFT IN GEORGIA, INDIAN COUNTRY & BEYOND

As the Trump Fascists close in on another stolen election, four leading experts tell us how it’s happening and what they’re doing to stop it.

First the great investigator GREG PALAST explains the basis for his lawsuit in Georgia, where Secretary of State Brian Kemp is running the election in which he is himself running for Governor.  Palast is suing to make public how Kemp is disenfranchising more than 500,000 citizens based on false information.

In North Dakota DANNY SHEEHAN and SARA NELSON are working with the Indigenous nations to stop vote stripping imposed by the legislature, which now demands street address on reservations where there are none.  

JON SIMON also joins us to talk about his book CODE RED and the anti-social sickness that is moving America’s super-rich to strip all others of their rights.

Join us in this powerful, passionate plunge into the pit of electoral hell from which our worst nightmare is poised to emerge….unless we stop him.

We’re joined by activist JOEL SEGAL to discuss the many ways the Trumpist GOP is stealing the 2018 election, and what we can do about it.  We particularly focus on stripping of voter rolls in Georgia, North Carolina and in North Dakota, where virtually all Indigenous reservation residents are being disenfranchised.

We also talk with ELLEN BROWN and MARC ARMSTRONG about the public banking option.  North Dakota has had a public bank form a century.  Now Los Angeles has a charter amendment that could establish one in one of America’s biggest cities.  Putting LA’s finances into public hands could save as much as $170 million/year, more money than it spends on road maintenance.  Brown and Armstrong explain how.

SAINTHOOD FOR OSCAR ROMERO; VICTORY OF INDIGENOUS RESISTANCE; FIGHT FOR THE SOUL OF OUR NATION

We are joined at the Green Power & Wellness Show by three great activists with key insights into the canonization of the murdered activist Archbishop Oscar Romero, a major court victory for Indigenous activism against the Dakota and Keystone XL pipelines, and for social justice and democratic survival in the US.

CLIFFORD J. TASNER of Americans for Democratic Action joins SARA NELSON and DANNY SHEEHAN of the Romero Institute along with host Harvey “Sluggo” Wasserman in a fascinating, lively hour. .

We start with the Catholic Church’s decision to recognize the sainthood of Oscar Romero, who was murdered in El Salvador in 1980 by fascist death squads.  Romero is the first “Liberation Theology” priest to become a saint, marking a major shift in the church’s orientation under Pope Francis.

We also explore a major court victory as North Dakota drops charges against Indigenous leader Chase Iron Eyes for his opposition to the Dakota Pipeline, which threatens the entire ecological system of the Mississippi Valley.  Charges of “trespassing” against the First Peoples who own the land to begin with has become a trap door into a new realm of legal challenge the corporate establishment may not want to touch.

Finally we use the furor over the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to explore the need for America's progressive wing to retake the nation and prevent a total fascist/misogynist take-over.  As Sara makes clear, it may well be America’s women, enraged by the Kavanaugh catastrophe, who lead the charge and ultimately make the difference.
