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…..

Deadly Nukes Being Bailed Out

Throughout the US old failed crumbling reactors are being bailed out to the tune of billions of dollars.

This insane scam could doom us all.

Renown experts Tim Judson and Paul Gunter tell us all about it. 

If you’re not terrified you’re not paying attention.

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.

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.

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.

We’re joined by the truly great ALAN MINSKY to explore the work of Progressive Democrats of America in the Age of Impeachment.

Alan has worked at Program Director of KPFK/Pacifica and now is a major national campaigner for a transcendence of the power of the corporations.

We trace American democracy from the Indigenous to Bernie, whose amazing rise to prominence is due in part to Allen’s great work.

A brilliant activist and analyst, Alan dissects the vital conflict between the corporate Democrats and the Sandernistas.

Bound up in that critical conflict is the future of our species.  Nobody explains it better than Alan Minsky.

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.

Climate strikers NATALIE ROTSTEIN of the Sunrise Movement and MOLLY BASLERof the Green Dream  join us for a spirited talk on Friday’s global climate strike and what it will take to win a green-powered Earth.

The massive walk-out of human beings fighting for survival on a beleaguered planet has become the centerpiece of a desperate attempt to preserve and enhance what’s left of our vital eco-systems.

From Ohio, JOE DEMARR of the Green Partyjoins us with updates on the brutal campaign to repeal the sickening, utterly corrupt HB6, the outrageous attempt by FirstEnergy to bail out its two soon-to-explode atomic reactors along with two obscene coal-burning power plants.

With these great activists we cut to the core of how we must save this earth.  Join us!!

September 13, 2019  


We confront the horrific atomic coup on-going in Ohio with expert/activists PAT MARIDA (Sierra Club), KEVIN KAMPS (Beyond Nuclear) and DONNA GILMORE (SOS). who are in the of thick making the planet green again.

Pat reports from Columbus on the storm trooper tactics being used by pro-nuclear thieves to prevent the gathering of signatures for a certified statewide petition.  The petition is in support of a referendum—certified by the state—to overturn a huge bailout for two nuke reactors (and two coal burners) that are set to explode on Lake Erie.

Kevin tells us that the hugely unpopular theft of ratepayer money perpetrated by the utility’s hired liars (with explicit help from Donald Trump) parallels industry tactics used in New York, New Jersey and Illinois to prop up similar soon-to-explode nukes.   

Donna chimes in with the dire situation in California, where we still can’t get Governor Gavin Newsom to inspect the soon-to-explode atomic reactors at Diablo Canyon.  In time of an earthquake, Diablo would send a radioactive cloud that would utterly destroy Los Angeles, killing millions and bankrupting the state, the nation, the species.

But for now the Ohio battle is all-consuming.  The outcome could actually affect the 2020 presidential election.  This podcast is the alchemical scripture from the dire straits.   Don’t miss it.

Election protection legends JOHN BRAKEY and STEVE ROSENFELD join us to explore major developments in Ohio, North Carolina, Iowa and around the nation.

On the 2020 ballot in Ohio is almost certain to be a referendum aimed at repealing a $150 million/year bailout for two nuke reactors and two coal burners. 
Signatures are being gathered to help kill the extremely unpopular mega-theft.  The repeal might help attract progressive voters and tip the state.

In North Carolina a court has overturned the legislature’s extremely partisan, racist gerrymandering plan.  It’s unclear how will replace it and how, but it’s a big victory.

In Iowa, Rosenfeld has helped convince the Democratic Party to avoid corruptible electronic/internet-based primary voting methods.  It is a big victory with nationwide ramifications.

For a fact-filled, on-point hour on the state of our election process, don’t miss this show.
