A bought, gerrymandered Ohio Legislature has just handed a much-hated $150 million/year public bailout to two dinosaur nuke reactors primed to explode. It also bails out two filthy 50-year-old coal burners and guts programs for increased efficiency. But a possible repeal referendum could reverse all that and have a serious impact on the Trumpsters who pushed it in the 2020 election.

Had Friday's 7.1 earthquake and other ongoing seismic shocks hit less than 200 miles northwest of Ridgecrest/China Lake, ten million people in Los Angeles would now be under an apocalyptic cloud, their lives and those of the state and nation in radioactive ruin.
The likely human death toll would be in the millions. The likely property loss would be in the trillions. The forever damage to our food supply incalculable

Donald Trump rolls along as the ultimate composite of all we've done to the rest of the world. He's not an accident, an aberration, or an outlier. He comes from the core of our multi-century global assault on all things social democratic.

Defying all laws of competitive economics, climate change, and technological progress, the Ohio House has voted in a ratepayer-funded bailout for two aging nuclear power plants on Lake Erie, and two even older coal burners, one in Indiana, but owned by the Ohio Valley Electric Corporation, based in Piketon.

Putin and company will be back in 2020 on behalf of their wholly-owned asset. They'll be more powerful and sophisticated than ever, marching in lockstep with their fellow mega-corporations and terminal polluters. A victory would let them complete the fascist assault on what's left of American democracy. And they'll have two other key allies: Jim Crow, and War.

Every downwind American is now threatened with deadly radiation while state after state bankrupts itself with soaring electric bills and ecological disaster, crippling the Solartopian green energy revolution. It is, in short, the "hole in the head" wave of massive state-based nuke bailouts

As the issues of ballot marking and imaging flow into the mix, the question of how to secure a reliable, verifiable vote count in 2020 and beyond will require a huge grassroots effort. In this century, with the likes of Donald Trump in the White House, Thomas Jefferson's warning that preserving democracy requires "eternal vigilance" remains an epic understatement.

All reacters heat the planet with massive steam and hot water emissions. Their cooling towers kill thousands of bats and birds. The heat, radiation, and chemicals spewed by their out-take pipes destroy entire marine ecosystems, including millions of fish. The radiation from Fukushima still pours into the Pacific.

Eight years ago this week apocalyptic radiation clouds began pouring out of Fukushima.
They haven't stopped. Nor have the huckster holocaust deniers peddling still more of these monsters of mass destruction. Some even deny the health impacts from Fukushima fallout that's already more than 100 times greater than Hiroshima and Nagasaki's.

Since the Great Society sank into the Vietnam quagmire, the only major federal program meant to benefit the working/middle class has been Obamacare. The gap between rich and poor has become a bottomless pit. What matters now is substance. And it's coming from the post-corporate left.

The Green New Deal's most visible public advocate, newly elected 29-year-old U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Democrat of New York, has laid out a preliminary blueprint advocating an energy economy meant to be based entirely on "renewable" and "clean" sources. According to a report in The Hill, fossil fuels and nuclear power are "completely out" of her plan.

Trump's insane decision to shut the government has shaken even many Republicans. That hate-crazed banshees like Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter could scream down the White House is a reality too terrifying even for many at Fox "News." Visuals of young innocents being tortured and murdered have moved the madness even deeper.

Like Nixon in the last days of Watergate, Trumputin has begun to twist in the wind. The Trumputin madness will get worse. Donald will do anything to stay out of prison, no matter what the cost to the planet or the rest of us. But the survival instincts of our species are strong, and the pushback mounts by the moment.
This endgame will be a WILD ride.

In the Trumputin world of organized crime, Michael Cohen has committed the ultimate betrayal: he's helped Robert Mueller prove beyond doubt that don Putin in the Kremlin put his very own bagman into the White House. Cohen is the ultimate mobster nightmare, the inside attorney who flips. Many a consigliere has died at Mafia hands for far less.

The Don Jr.-Eric-Ivanka-Kushner-Cohen-Manafort cabal has lied to Congress, the courts, and the people. More will arise as the Trump consiglieri flee the sinking ship. The real push must come from an awakened public, bouncing back at last with a rebirth of grassroots outrage and social democracy.

The infamously tainted elections in Georgia and Florida MUST be re-done while the whole world watches. These elections have been run by candidates who are running in them. There's no reason to have any confidence in any outcome. There's just one solution: New Elections. This time supervised by the United Nations, or some other neutral international body, under intense global scrutiny.

The path to security is narrowing. Breathe the air, look at your kids, think about being in a crowded public room, and know that the need for meaningful, powerful, and effective citizen action is more immediate than ever. In today's America, random mass murder has merged with ecological devastation.

Franklin Roosevelt lacked the courage and backbone to allow the Jewish refugees on the St. Louis into the United States. Their death is forever on his soul.
Donald Trump has now whipped up the whirlwind that has slaughtered still more Jews in Pittsburgh. He intends to use this "Red Wave" of bigotry and violence to solidify a fascist regime that can only lead to more slaughter.
