DEATH BY OIL: TRUMP, BUSH & THE DAKOTA PIPELINE are exposed by the great SARA NELSON & DANNY SHEEHAN.

Among our most effective and dedicated life-long activists, Danny & Sara of the ROMERO INSTITUTE have been at the heart of critical fights such as the Karen Silkwood Case, the Iran-Contra scandal and now the tribal sovereignty struggle for more than four decades.

In this riveting interview they outline the basics of America’s most critical current energy war as the King CONG (Coal, Oil, Nukes & Gas) elite tries to ram this insane flow of global warming petro-poison through the heart of the nation and into the global market for the private profit of a tiny fascist cabal.

Uniquely articulate and compelling, what they have to say affects us all, and should not be missed.

ELECTRONIC ELECTION THEFT, RENEWABLE GREEN POWER & THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE fill our souls today in Solartopia today.

 
With my long-time co-conspirator BOB FITRAKIS of www.freepress.org we study the history of electronic voting machines as presented to the political science profession in a breakthrough moment where mainstream academia seems finally to be taking seriously the theft of our elections.  An attorney and full professor, Fitrakis’s pioneer work on the electronic debasement of what’s left of our democracy is key to our understanding how we wound up with the corrupt, insane Donald Trump in the White House.
 
We're also joined by KEVIN KAMPS of BeyondNuclear.org to dissect the latest pro-fossil/nuke “report” from Energy Secretary Rick Perry (Texas’s former “Governor Good-Hair”) fomenting the obscene absurdity that somehow renewable energy must defer to Trump’s polluters destroying the Earth.  In tandem we discuss Ohio Republican Governor John Kasich’s opposition to a massive bailout for decayed nuke reactors in Ohio versus New York Democrat Andrew Cuomo’s support for a massive bailout of four reactors in upstate New York.  
 
Along the way we also visit the NFL and COLIN KAEPERNICK’s spreading protest, putting forth a demand that we exchange the racist, pro-slavery Star-Spangled Banner for something better, like THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND.  The concussions dealt by the intense military presence at pro football games are damaging our national soul, and need to be replaced by the rising tide of progressive athletic consciousness now sweeping the sports world.

Charlottesville!!!!
 
We spend our hour in solartopia with the great
Peace activist David Swanson talking to us from the belly of the beast. 
 
David has observed the chaos and bloodshed in charlottesville firsthand. 
 
His insights and opinions on Trump, racism, activism and violence are not to be missed. 
 
This is a priceless hour with a uniquely important American commentator right from the front.

HOW DO WE STOP DONALD TRUMP FROM BLOWING UP THE WORLD?

 
Following a successful “Nagasaki / Nixon Day” gathering ( www.solartopia.org ) aimed at abolishing nuke weapons and removing Donald Trump, we are joined by three great activist/experts in discussing the clear and present danger of a nuclear apocalypse…and how to prevent it from happening.
 
 
Long-time Santa Monica-based JERRY RUBIN is joined by author/activist LANCE SIMMONS, and radio/TV analyst PROF. PETER MATHEWS as we run through the catalog of dire possibilities.
 
In contrast with John Kennedy during the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962, the current occupant of the White House has no moral compass, and no intellectual capacity worthy of handling the complexities of global arrears.  His threats against North Korea have been needless, juvenile and supremely dangerous.  He seems to have no idea or concern for the billions of lives he could destroy.  
 
Along with the need to unify our opposition to Trump’s insanity, we discuss the possibilities of nationwide rallies, a general strike, impeachment and more….I
 
If you are as on edge as the rest of us, don’t miss this show.

THE MONUMENTAL COLLAPSE OF THE VC SUMMER NUKE PROJECT is explained by long-time activists TOM CLEMENTS of Friends of the Earth in Columbia, South Carolina, and PAUL GUNTER of Beyond Nuclear in our nation’s capital.

The cancellation of the huge double-reactor construction project drops the number of commercial reactors being built in the US to just two, which are the Vogtle reactors in neighboring Georgia.  As Clements and Gunter explain, like the now-dead Summer project, Vogtle is also massively over budget and years overdue.  The bankruptcy of Westinghouse and the weakness of its parent company, Toshiba, forced the VC Summer cancellation and could soon do the same to Vogtle.

Should Vogtle be cancelled, the US would have zero reactors under construction for the first time since the 1950s, opening the door to a real transition to Solartopia, based on decentralized and community-owned green power.

Don’t miss hearing these brilliant long-time activists spell out how this shut-down has happened, and what is likely to come next in the fast-transforming world of energy.

IS DONALD TRUMP A MONEY LAUNDERER FOR THE RUSSIAN MAFIA?
>
> PROF. ROBERT FITRAKIS fills us in on the long, dangerous history of Trump’s reliance on the Russian mob throughout his career in finance and real estate.  Fitrakis warns in his latest writings, including THE STRIP & FLIP DISASTER OF AMERICA’S STOLEN ELECTIONS, that Trump owes Putin and the Russian underworld too much money, and that they have too many secrets on him, to bode well for America’s future.
>
> We also explore the stolen elections of 2000 and 2004, as well as 2016, and speculate on why muilti-millionaires like Al Gore, John Kerry and Hillary Clinton have refused to fight for presidencies they clearly won, leaving America’s electoral system in a total shambles.
>
> Author and election integrity activist MARTA STEELE fills in the details on the 2008 and 2012 elections and how Barack Obama did manage to win despite the corrupted process.  HINT: it had to do with millions of devoted grassroots activists.
>
> PAUL KANGAS also joins us to report on his recent travels in Putin’s Russia, and on a new French Ph.d. program offering advanced studies in climate change with expenses-paid sojourns in Paris.

STOLEN ELECTIONS & SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE CONSUMER SCREENING are with us today in Solartopia.  

 
We’re joined by JOHN BRAKEY, legendary election protection activist in Arizona.  John fills us in first on the breaking
news of Arizona Senator John McCain’s illness and its potential impact on politics in that state.
 
We’re then joined by green business pioneer MITCH ROFSKY for a wide-ranging discussion of how Kris Kobach and Trump’s
Jim Crow “Election Commission” has been tasked with stripping registration rolls throughout the US and guaranteeing that blacks,
Hispanics, Asian-Americans, Muslims, students, the elderly and other non-millionaires do not get the chance to vote.  
 
Election hacking by Russians makes it clear it can and has been done more easily by American secretaries of state and other
partisan officials intent on keeping gerrymandered seats safe for incumbents.
 
Mitch also tells us about his Better World auto club and on-going attempts to do socially responsible ratings on the widest possible
range of consumer items….including our elections.

STOPPING NUKE SUBSIDIES & GOING MICRO-GRID IN OHIO & EVERYWHERE is our Solartopian talk today as we're joined by NED FORD and PAT MARIDA of the Ohio Sierra Club, and energy expert MARK SOMMER, a former Ohioan now based in California.
 
Because Ohio is a bellwether, the attempt by FirstEnergy and other fossil/nuke dinosaurs to gouge massive public subsidies could decide much of America's energy policy.  Massive nuke handouts are scheduled in New York and Illinois, but are being resisted in Ohio, which could turn the tide.
 
Ohio also has spectacular wind resources which are begin quashed by the utility-owned legislature, but which could create thousands of jobs and billions of cheap kilowatts that could clean the rust off Ohio's industrial belt.
 
And as we learn from Mark Sommer, the advent of micro-grids could turn the Buckeye State into a cyber-secure bastion of energy independence.  
 
Don't miss this blueprint of how Ohio could be again the Heart of it All:  this time in Solartopia.

TRUMP’S “ELECTION INTEGRITY” FRAUD & THE THEFT OF GEORGIA’S 6TH CONGRESSIONAL ELECTION

 
Solartopia depends on an actual democracy, and we no longer have one.
 
Columnist BOB KOEHLER, author JON SIMON and Georgia-base election activist GARLAND FAVORITO tell us warn us about the destruction of our electoral process.
 
We start with the ridiculous panel Trump has appointed to investigate “voter fraud.”  This gang of thieves includes the very worst election abusers in modern America.
 
We then cover the GOP “victory” in the Georgia 6th district which was clearly stolen.
 
Why won’t the corporate media or the Democratic Party say anything about this?  Join us to find out.

WILL OHIO DEFEAT ITS NUKE BAILOUT & COLLAPSE THE US REACTOR INDUSTRY?

 
The Ohio legislature may be on the brink of rejecting FirstEnergy’s request for billions in handouts to keep its failed nuke reactors operating.  As much as $4 billion in wind projects is set to go for northern Ohio.
 
Will this tipping point in the nation’s bellweather state send America's energy balance deep into Solartopia?
 
US renewables now generate more juice than nukes  So we host DICK MUNSON of the Environmental Defense Fund, PAT MARIDA of the Ohio Sierra Club and KEVIN KAMPS of Beyond Nuclear to dissect the reactor bailouts in Ohio, Illinois and New York where the future of atomic energy will be decided.  At least half the 99 reactors still licensed in the US are losing money. 
 
 If these three states reject these massive radioactive bailout, nuke power’s death spiral will significantly deepen.  
 
Let’s hope!!!
