Solartopia Green Power and Wellness Hour – 02.11.16


We are joined by MIMI KENNEDY, BOB FITRAKIS & ANGELA WATTERS to seek out ways to stop the White House and the rest of our government from again being stolen yet again by election fraud.

The need to verify your own voter registration, to safeguard exit polling, to monitor electronic vote counts and much more are what we discuss here. Mimi from Progressive Democrats of America, Bob from and Angels from Reader Support News fill a completely packed hour on this critical topic.

We cannot afford the thefts of governorships in Wisconsin and Alabama to keep happening, or the thefts of the White House as in 2000 and 2004, and much more to continue to happen.

Get to the core of it in this hour with these great experts. We will continue to work on it as we fight our way to a truly democratic Solartopia the only way we can….with legitimate, reliable democratic elections…..

Tom has been a leader in the AIDS dissident movement that perceives AIDS is a social problem and not a medical problem. He has also developed a counseling technique that centers on “crisis mentality” – an anxiety-regulating mechanism where, in the face of a crisis, preexisting and unresolved emotional tensions and conflicts in one’s life drive one not to solve the crisis but to perpetuate and escalate it. Along with HEAL’s president Michael Ellner, Tom’s mission has been to demystify health and illness, advocate for non-toxic, alternative approaches to health and healing, and help people with fears, concerns and conditions about AIDS.
