Will 9 GOP governors put Romney in the White House? Republican governors of the nine key swing states above have the power to flip the election without significant public recourse. Except for exit polls there is no established way to check how the official electronic vote count might square with the actual intent of the electorate. And there is no legal method by which an electronic vote count can be effectively challenged.

Four Ways Ohio Republicans are Already Stealing the 2012 Election By purging registration lists, limiting voting times, messing with voter ID requirements and controlling electronic voting machines, the GOP has a huge leg up on winning what has often been America's key swing state. Clearly the Ohio GOP is once again geared up to deny the vote -- and vote count -- to as many Democrats as it can. If it succeeds, as it did in 2004, Barack Obama stands little chance of being re-elected.

How Ohio's Energy Economy Became a Radioactive 19th Century Relic Today Ohio's fossil-fueled, landlocked capital city is the western world's largest with neither internal commuter light rail nor access by passenger train service from anywhere else. After being at the cusp of major solar & wind power advances, the state has all but killed the prospects for any large new green energy projects. The state may now miss one of history's biggest and most profitable technological transformations

Trump's Assault on Solar Masks an Epic Crisis in the Nuclear Industry A major crisis in the nuclear power industry is threatening to shut four high-profile reactors, with more shutdowns to come. These closures could pave the way for thousands of new jobs in wind and solar, offsetting at least some of the losses from Trump's attack.

The suit joins a wide range of GOP attempts to shut down the counting of such votes in swing states like Nevada, Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Florida.

These cuts will cripple regulation of air and water quality, strip oversight of a wide range of land management programs, and loosen restrictions on chemical emissions from industrial facilities.

The Court's ruling clearly grants the power to any US president to ban any immigrant group for any reason. And it, by default, approves their detention in concentration camps, as Trump is now doing along the Mexican border.

Today's $7 Billion New Nuke Attack Nuke lobbyists have spent more than $640 million in the past decade to fund a "nuclear renaissance" from the federal trough. Because they are uneconomical and cannot compete with natural gas and renewables, private funding for new reactor projects has been virtually non-existent. The General Accounting Office and Congressional Budget Office have predicted at least a 50% financial failure rate for such loans.
