We’re joined in Solartopia by ALAN MINSKY of Progressive Democrats of America and BOB FITRAKIS of Freepress.org to talk politics and sports.

Hillary Clinton’s latest attacks on Bernie Sanders (“Nobody likes him”) revive the split within the Democratic Party between the corporatists and the social democrats.
Bernie’s poll numbers continue to show unshakable support for an agenda that includes economic rights and social justice for the vast American working/middle class. 
He also represents the unlikely ascendence of the 1960s New Left to a position where one of us could actually become president. 
We inevitably deal with issues of election theft and Russian involvement, which has finally prompted the corporate media to deal with the reality that our elections are being stolen.
We finish with the Olympic Committee’s insane ban on political protest (lotsa luck with that one) and the all-important question of who will win this year’s Super Bowl.

IMPEACHMENT!  ELECTION THEFT!!  A BURNING PLANET!!!

As the House walks its indictment into the US Senate, we dive into the swamp of stolen elections.

Experts BOB FITRAKIS and STEVE ROSENFELD know more about this than just about anyone.

We begin with PAUL MANAFORT, Trump crony now in prison whose nefarious thievery stretches from Ohio 2004 to Ukraine and beyond.

We then navigate from stripped voter rolls and rigged machines to the dubious Iowa caucuses, Cambridge Analytica, the Russians and more.

For a guided tour of the hellish realities of our antiquated, hackable voting system, you won’t do better than this.

ELECTION THEFT ON A WHOLE NEW LEVEL:  CAMBRIDGE ANALYTICA ET. AL. AS WAR CLOUDS LOOM

These two brilliant and powerful citizens have already made a huge difference in how we conduct our elections.

Today the give us the inside information on Cambridge Analytica, computerized ballot marking devices and the other incredibly sophisticated tools being used to manipulate our elections.

Beneath the clouds of war and ecological catastrophe, Susan and John keep their eyes on the prize of actual democracy.

FROM THE GOOD WAR TO THE FOREVER WAR

We are joined in Solartopia by the legendary H. BRUCE FRANKLIN whose astonishing career spans time as a navigator in the Strategic Air Command all the way though the core of the anti-war movement and beyond.

A long-time Professor of history at Rutgers University, Bruce has also grown to great prominence dissecting major science fiction including Star Wars and Star Trek (which he favors). 

He is author or editor of a score of books, all of them of uniquely diverse interest.

I met Bruce in Paris in 1967 at the height of the Vietnam Peace movement.  He has worked the tugs and docks of New York harbor as a laborer (where he helped pull a mafia corpse out of the water) and the streets of the Bay Area as an anti-war organizer.

It would be hard to invent a more brilliant and fascinating citizen of Solartopia.  Don’t miss this show.
