In the ultimate election year, confusion and fear have overtaken our species. That America's Constitutional recourse for removing this de facto dictator has been plunged into chaos. That a megalomanic mobster has declared a national emergency and granted himself tyrannical dominion.

Now that the dust has settled from Glenn Beck's weekend revival at the Lincoln Memorial, two messages need to be delivered loud and clear.
First: the United States of America has NEVER been a Christian nation, but there are those who would make it so, past and future.
And second: do not discount Glenn Beck becoming president of the United States.

The legendary Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists (BAS), which tracks issues related to technology and global security, has issued a terrifying warning: We are less than two minutes to midnight on the Doomsday clock.

In the face of outright fascism and corporate corruption, it's time to reclaim the legitimate mainstream acceptance of American Socialism. The idea that our citizenry is entitled to ownership of our nation's core economic institutions is as American as apple pie. So is opposition to empire and a deep, abiding commitment to real grassroots social democracy.

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.

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.

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.
