DISSECTING THE “GEORGIA WAY” FOR FUTURE GRASSROOTS ORGANIZING

Grassroots Emergency Election Protection Zoom #69

First we’re filled in by CYNTHIA PAPERMASTER of Code Pink on the efforts to free JULIAN ASSANGE from his unjust captivity and torture in the UK.

Then we hear for the bulk of the zoom from the great RAY MCCLENDON on how grassroots organizing in Georgia helped put Joe Biden in the White House and, truly miraculously, send a black and a Jewish Senator to the US Capitol.

Those two Senators gave the Democrats a 50-50 split in the Upper House and put the decisive vote in the hands of Vice President Katherine Harris, changing everything.

But how it was done also changed everything, as we hear from the Political Director of the Atlanta NAACP, who helped coordinate one of the most successful grassroots campaigns in US history.

This “Georgia Way” is now the subject of a major upcoming book and documentary film that will serve as a national paradigm for confronting the Trump-Bannon fascist assault on our democracy.

We also discuss with STEVE ROSENFELD, RAY LUTZ, JOHN BRAKEY and others the preliminary realities of a definitive guidebook on election protection recounts and audits.  This will take up the bulk of our upcoming zoom #70.

In the meantime, we watch with a combination of hope and horror as the Democrats try to pass some kind of compromise legislation while 50 Republicans watch on in brain-dead uniformity.

DISSECTING THE 14 PILLARS OF THE AMERICAN FASCIST INFRASTRUCTURE.

 
In this special overview edition #68 of the Grassroots Emergency Election Protection Coalition Zoom, we take on the structural realities of the US fascist state. 
 
 It is the institutional core of the Trump/Bannon dictatorial fortress.  
 
We do this holistic dissection to link the critical analyses of what we face and how we must dismantle the roots of autocracy to let our democracy breathe.  
 
The definition of fascism, as coined by Mussolini, is “corporate control of the state.”
 
The 14 pillars of fascism in general were codified by Lawrence Brill.
 
The 14 pillars of American corporate/fascist state are:  THE SUPREME COURT, THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE, GERRYMANDERING, THE 2010 REDMAP COUP, THE SENATE, THE FILIBUSTER, DISENFRANCHISEMENT OF NON-MILLIONAIRES OF YOUTH & COLOR, FASCIST CONTROL OF THE ELECTORAL APPARATUS, RIGGED RECOUNTS/AUDITS, THE DRUG WAR, MONEY IN POLITICS, THE MEDIA, ARMED VIOLENCE, THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY.
 
Join us to here how all this is tied together….and can be defeated..

WHY ARE THERE BILLIONS FOR NUKES IN THE BIDEN BILLS?

 
 
We confront the insane reality that these Biden bailout bills include huge sums—tens of billions of dollars—to once again subsidize the nuclear power industry.
 
We’re joined by No Nukes legends PAUL GUNTER and KEVIN KAMPS of Beyond Nuclear to rip through the insanity of spewing ever more of our public money on this insanely dangerous, expensive failed technology.
 
Long-time House staffer JOEL SEGAL now working nationally on the issue of homelessness also speaks.
 
The forever whining of atomic proponents that they can’t compete in the marketplace and therefore must be perennially handed huge sums of cash has come home to roost amidst the fierce national debate over the various Biden plans to rebuild our nation.
 
But any atomic reactor could in an instant destroy our national ecology and economy while killing millions of Americans.  And there are 93 of them currently operating in the US, all of them old, embrittled and poised to blow.  
 
It’s time to forever bury this insane parasitic industry.  Nobody says it better than these guys.  Join us!

CAN WOMEN MAKE MID-EAST PEACE?  CAN BIDEN’S PLANS BE SAVED??  CAN WE AVOID A DICTATORSHIP???

 Women making peace in the Middle East is the subject of a new movement brought to us by LYNNE FEINERMAN and FATIMA ARGUN who announce a new series of zoom gatherings that could make a HUGE difference.

 We then talk with JOEL SEGAL about the hard realities of the Biden infrastructure and remake America bills, including in-depth analyses of where we’re really at with Manchin, Sinema and the rock-solid McConnell Republicans who give no signs of budging. 

 We embrace the acknowledgement by the New York Times that the great work done by JOHN BRAKEY, STEVE ROSENFELD and RAY LUTZ in Arizona save the nation from a bogus, misleading and destructive   fake recount set to be duplicated throughout the US was absolutely essential to the survival of the Republic. 

 We then take the deep dive into the diabolical plans of Steve Bannon and the possibility of turning the US into an actual dictatorship.  Hint:  the Constitutional highway is totally open, it could be done by 2024 and Bannon is clear on his intention to do it.

 We begin the dialogue on this horrifying prospect and will continue it in two weeks, so DO YOUR HOMEWORK, because if you don’t we could all wind up at Guantanamo.
