Across the U.S., Police-Killing Cases Extremely Slow to Justice
Six ‘Debates,’ But Are They Talking About What Really Matters?
Developments in several cases involving police killings point to a historic problem and pattern—the inordinately long time such cases take to investigate and prosecute, and the unusually high failure rate in securing indictments and convictions.
The Republicans have had four of them; the Democrats, two. But are the superhyped Q&A sessions (Leid Stories refuses to call them “debates”), hosted by various media entities, really educating the public about what’s at stake in the 2016 presidential election? Listeners cast their votes on the issue.

Solartopia Green Power and Wellness Hour – 10.01.15

ALTERNET political editor STEVEN ROSENFELD joins us again in Solartopia to talk about ELECTRONIC ELECTION THEFT and the 2016 election….plus a lot more.

Steve’s major feature on the BRENNAN CENTER report dissecting our crumbling computer-based voting system introduced many Americans to the reality that our network of casting and counting votes is simply not reliable.

Steve also talks to us about the 2016 horse race and conversations that might have occurred between BILL CLINTON and DONALD TRUMP before Trump decided to run.

He analyzes why SCOTT WALKERS’ candidacy collapsed.

And we look into an important new book on the culture of slavery and why its poisonous effects continue to permeate our culture.

If you’re at all interested in American politics, don’t miss this show…

IS DISNEY BANNING AMERICAN WORKERS?

Attorney JAMES OTTO talks about his California lawsuit against the Disney giant for dumping its American workers and forcing them to train their own“cheaper” replacements being brought in from India. According to Otto, this global scam involves the loss of millions of American jobs including nearly a thousand at Disney. It’s a fascinating portrait of yet another corporate assault on the American workforce, this time at the iconic place where “dreams come true.”

ARE AMERICA’S ELECTRONIC VOTING MACHINES OBSOLETE?

The second half-hour of our show is with STEVE ROSENFELD of AlterNet. His powerful new piece covers a major report from the prestigious BRENNAN CENTER of New York University, one of America’s leading authorities on our voting process. Steve’s piece underscores the finding that the voting apparatus about to be used to decide who will be our next president is obsolete, falling apart and very easily hackable. Brennan stops well short of issuing a meaningful warning about how the election could be stolen.

But we do not. Steve is a strong source of expertise on this most important issue for American democracy, and we only begin to scratch the surface.
