Jonathan Simon's "Evening of Election (in) Security": Outrages Viral and Exponential Jonathan Simon amazed an amply filled room of interested listeners on the depth and breadth of election corruption in this country and what we're doing to fight back, based on his magisterial book Code Red, which now exists in three editions, 2018 the most recent one, and we're hoping for a 2020 follow-up of unmatchable insights into what's been going on in this country and what might happen thereafter.

Third Annual Women's March Converges on DC; Blocked from Capitol Building Far fewer women showed up in Washington, DC for this year's Women's March--thousands as opposed to hundreds of thousands in 2017. A photo essay + commentary. Will we ever be able to sit back and not plan marches? Let us never stop marching--that's what democracy looks like.

But there are too few of us and we're succeeding too slowly up against a massive brick wall of corruption. Will the world end first?

Michael Moore's Inconvenient Truth: We Have 50 Days to Go in Our No Trump Bid! Michael Moore's latest blockbuster will hit the cinemas this Friday. Don't miss it. I saw it and appreciated it last night, 9/17, but found the Q&A session with him afterward far more interesting though I do refer to the film also. Priceless footage. I hope it scares us all into action with its warning even more dire than Al Gore's in DC nearly 10 years ago, his Inconvenient Truth.

Jesse Jackson Sr. have converged from both sides of the country into its Heartland, Kansas, and will proceed to the South, Atlanta, suing 27 states plus two SoS's running for governor, Kris Kobach and Brian Kemp. They aim to re-enfranchise voters illegally removed from the rolls for the crime of having similar names, not identical ones, even if they live on opposite sides of the country.
