THE PRESIDENTIAL RACE HITS CRITICAL MASS

As we approach Super-Tuesday and the all-important March 3 California primary, we’re joined by two of America’s great activists.

CLIFFORD TASNER heads the southern California of AMERICANS FOR DEMOCRATIC ACTION.

ALAN MINSKY leads the national PROGRESSIVE DEMOCRATS OF AMERICA. 

Together these two powerful, charismatic and brilliant leaders dissect this most critical of all American elections.

We particularly focus on whether Bernie Sanders will be deprived of the Democratic nomination.  And if so, who will the corporate Democrats anoint?

With a major New York Times piece to day, the name of Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown has jumped into the ring.

If you are following this presidential race, do not miss this wildly interesting and provocative discussion.

THE DEVASTATING CHAOS OF THE DEMOCRATIC PRIMARIES

We’re joined by election protection experts STEVE ROSENFELD and JOHN BRAKEY for a terrifying excursion into the bizarro world of the Democratic primaries.

Steve has been to Iowa, New Hampshire and now Nevada for the Alice in Wonderland pageant of utterly chaotic non-credible primaries where the results vary from unreliable to absurd.

Are the corporate Dems stealing it from Bernie?  Are they merely incompetent?  Have the Republicans successfully sabotaged the process entirely?

Will the Democrats let Bernie have a credible run that falls just short of the nomination, and then hand it to a “safe” non-candidate like Adam Schiff or Sherrod Brown?

What we know for sure is that the Dems are using untested software in contests watched by the whole world.  And that the only thing predictable is embarrassing chaos.

You might want to take a Valium before listening to this essential show.

We’re joined in Solartopia by a true national treasure, the great activist/journalist Professor KARL GROSSMAN.

For some SIXTY years Karl has been blazing a powerful path to the Truth on nuke power, electoral realities, official corruption and more.

From his days as a cub reporter in Cleveland to his decades of dedicated college teaching on Long Island, Karl has been a mainstay of American journalism.

He talks to us about the dying atomic reactor industry, Trump’s insane push for war into space, socialism versus social democracy, and much much more.

Karl is a brilliant, witty and unfailingly pleasant and courteous individual who has made a real difference in our nation and world.  Do not miss spending this hour with him.

HOW THE DNC STOLE IOWA & IS GEARING UP TO TAKE CALIFORNIA TOO

We’re joined by election protection experts BOB FITRAKIS & JOHN BRAKEY to dissect how the Democratic National Committee deliberately screwed the Iowa caucuses and how they’re likely to do it again in California.

Despite the smokescreen, Bernie Sanders was the clear winner in Iowa.  All reliable polls showed him with a substantial lead prior to the caucuses.  All reliable vote counts show him winning. 

There may be room for the DNC to fudge on the delegate count.  But there is no doubt that Joe Biden has gone down in flames, Amy Kobuchar is not a factor, and Elizabeth Warren is barely hanging on. 

The fate of Pete Buttigieg is unclear.  But there’s no doubt the DNC will do anything & everything to prevent Bernie from winning the Democratic nomination.

Which may now make this a two-person race, between Bernie & Michael Bloomberg, who is plastering the nation with anti-Trump ads.

The DNC has already adjusted its rules to let Bloomberg into the next debate.  How far will they go to make him the nominee?

And if he loses the nomination to Bernie, will he use his billions to support him?

Don’t miss this amazing discussion.

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

As the insanity escalates in Iran and Iraq, we face the extremely sophisticated and dangerous on-going  push to manipulate the American electorate.

We’re joined by two of America’s top election protection analyst/activists JOHN BRAKEY and SUSAN PYNCHON.

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.

If you’re concerned about the realities of 2020 election, don’t miss this show.

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.

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!!!
