DO THE CORPORATE DEMS PREFER TRUMP TO BERNIE?

 
As Bernie Sanders shows escalating strength at the grassroots, we explore 2020s electoral realities with two GREAT activists:  JOEL SEGAL and BOB FITRAKIS.
 
Both long-time associates of the legendary Detroit Congressman John Conyers, Bob and Joel have unique in/outsider grasps on how the electoral system and the Democratic Party really work.
 
Bob is now an amicus attorney in the pivotal cases surrounding Ohio’s nuke bailout repeal, in which the atomic industry is conspiring to destroy the referendum process by physical force.
 
Like Bob, Joel is integral to the nationwide grassroots movement to protect the integrity of the 2020 election and prevent it from again being stolen.
 
As we ramble through the realities of the corrupt corporate Democrats and our compromised electoral process, we grapple with the fact that this campaign will determine the fate of human life on this Earth.
 
Don’t miss the outcome!!!

VOTER RIGHTS & THE TRUMP ASSAULT ON DEMOCRACY

Nothing cuts to the core of the 2020 election more sharply than the Trump Party attack on the right to vote.

Legendary activist BARBARA ARNWINE and voting rights expert STEVE ROSENFELD inform us on the GOP's latest attempts to suppress the public franchise. 

Barbara discusses the infamous Texas attack on Crystal Mason, an African-American ex-felon facing stiff prison sentences from her attempt to vote.  As Barbara shows, the prosecution is clearly designed to intimidate voters.

Much more like it, she says, is being directed all over the country. 

Steve follows up with discussions of new voting machine technologies and much more.  From state to gerrymandered state, he says, the questions surrounding how we will cast ballots and have them counted grow ever more fierce. 

If you’re concerned about where our democracy is headed in 2020, this in-depth exploration of our crumbling democracy from two world-class experts is not to be missed.
