Medical Debt and Mass Murder

We talk first with the great Jerry Ashton about his astonishing campaign to wipe out the medical bills of those in collection.

Abolishmedicaldebt.org has so far freed a half-million families from more than a billion dollars in financial liabilities.  Join us to find out how.

We then hear from Jevin Lamar who was raised impoverished and unloved in Dayton, Ohio.  His amazing story is both heartbreaking and uplifting. So is the rap song he wrote and sings about his cousin, a father of four gunned down in Dayton’s horrific mass shooting last august.

For pure pride and pathos don’t miss this show.

IMPEACHMENT, DEMOCRATS, DEATH PENALTY & NUKE POWER

We talk with the great anti-death penalty activist ROBERT “RENNY” CUSHING and the great safe energy activist KEVIN KAMPS about the impeachment hearings, the Democrats, the death penalty and nuke power.

Renny has just won a major award for his stellar decades-long work to abolish the death penalty, a uniquely powerful activism that has helped save countless Americans from wrongful death at the hands of a barbarian state.
Renny’s fascinating story starts with the murder of his own father, and his work to prevent the killer from being assassinated by the state.

Now a long-time member and committee chairman in the New Hampshire Legislature, Renny is also a founder of the No Nukes movement, having marched against the nearby Seabrook reactor since the 1970s.

With Kevin we discuss the current sorry state of atomic energy and the latest industry scam aimed at stuffing nuke waste into various places where people don’t want it, and where it’s bound to fail.

After determining we all support the ever-evolving Bernie Sanders, this lovely talk with two spectacular activists is a pure joy.  Don’t miss it.

WILL VIOLENCE DECIDE THE 2020 ELECTION?

We talk with the great activists BARBARA ARNWINE and JOEL SEGAL about the realities of the upcoming popular vote on the future of the human race.

Violence has now entered the attempt to repeal a nuclear bailout in Ohio.  Code Pink activist Medea Benjamin has been assaulted at a public rally, and by police.

When push comes to shove do we doubt that Donald Trump will call out the Storm Troopers to stay in the White House.

We face these awful realities as none by activists of Barbara and Joel can do.

We then hear from long-time activist LORNA SALZMAN about the rise of the environmental movement and its tortured march into the realities the present.

In particular we hear about the challenges of beating nuclear power in the Age of Trump.  Don’t miss this show.

ELECTION THEFT & THUGGERY IN KY, OH & 2020

We’re joined by leading election expert/activists JOHN BRAKEY and STEVE ROSENFELD to cover the theft-in-progress of the Kentucky governorship and the 2020 election.

We confront the reality that Trumpist Republicans may try to overturn the will of the voters in ousting the incumbent GOP governor of Kentucky despite a 5,000-plus margin in the popular vote.

We also face the reality that the GOP will do everything possible to steal the 2020 election for Donald Trump.

And we learn that fascist physical violence has been used against legitimate signature gatherers to stop a referendum from overturning a nuke bailout in Ohio.

This is what we can expect in 2020 as we try to send Donald Trump from the White House to the Big House, where he belongs.

Hear it all with John, Steve & Harvey…..

FASCIST PRO-NUKE ASSAULT GOING TO OHIO SUPREME COURT

The assault by violent pro-nuke thugs against anti-bailout signature gatherers in Ohio is now going to that state’s Supreme Court.

We discuss this astonishing battle with long-time experts KEVIN KAMPS, DICK MUNSON and DAVE KRAFT, with Ohio Green Party activist JOE DEMARE.

A federal judge has now rejected a request by opponents of a statewide nuclear bailout for more time to gather signatures for a referendum.

The request was made necessary because Ohio’s Republican Secretary of State sat on the referendum application for 40 days, effectively reducing the signature gathering window from 90 days to 50.

Signature gathering was also disrupted by widespread physical attacks by thugs who also circulated a fake petition designed to create confusion.

In at least one case a repeal signature gatherer reported being offered $2500 to turn over legitimate signatures for obvious destruction.

To get a vital update on this deadly, democracy-destroying situation, listen in to Dick, Dave, Kevin, Joe and Harvey dissect the damage.

Our planet hangs in the balance…and the whole world is watching.

OUTRIGHT NUCLEAR FASCISM IN OHIO….BE VERY AFRAID

 
 
A violent, overtly fascist putsch against an anti-nuclear referendum in Ohio has taken the corporate assault on American democracy to a terrifying new level.
 
We talk with Attorney ROBERT FITRAKIS, Green activist JOE DEMARE and Beyond Nuclear’s KEVIN KAMPS about the brutal attacks being waged against signature gatherers for an anti-nuclear referendum.
 
In July the gerrymandered Ohio legislature passed AB6, a massive bailout for failing nuke and coal burners.  Pro-safety forces immediately filed to put on the ballot a referendum overturning the bailout.
 
Polls show Ohioans—including much of the conservative media—deeply opposed to the bailout, and supportive of the referendum.
 
But the nuclear industry is now using hired thugs to physically intimidate signature gatherers, putting in question whether the referendum will get on the ballot at all.  It’s a deep assault on democracy itself.
 
Don’t miss this riveting, horrifying discussion among experts deeply enmeshed in a fight that cuts to the core of American democracy.

WILL THE 2020 ELECTION BE STOLEN?

We talk with superb experts JOHN BRAKEY and STEVE ROSENFELD about the state of the 2020 elections.

Steve & John have been investigating and reporting on the status of electronic and other voting machines in key swing states throughout the country.

The inventory is definitely mixed, as are the prospects for a free and fair election.  The prospects for a fair vote count are also definitely mixed.

To get a grip on what we are now facing in 2020, you’d do well to listen to this powerful and penetrating discussion.

IMPEACHED!!!   AND NUKE/MAFIA INSANITY IN OHIO

Now that Nancy Pelosi has dropped the Impeachment shoe on the mobster-in-chief, we talk with the great Attorney/Political Scientist BOB FITRAKIS about the deep background of Trump’s Ukraine connections.  It’s even worse than you think.

We also visit with KEVIN KAMPS of Beyond Nuclear on the absolutely astonishing mobster strong-arming being used in Ohio to keep off the ballot a referendum meant to reverse the billion-dollar bailout FirstEnergy wants to scam from Ohio ratepayers.

From fake petitions to anti-Chinese hate ads to assault and battery to outright mass deceit, you will not believe your ears.  It’s Donald Trump on radioactive steroids.  Don’t miss this show.
