Brian Ross Investigates: How Trump Stole 2020

November’s presidential election is now just 16 weeks away. In the primaries we saw all sorts of chaos and mayhem — long lines, few polling places, few polling workers — and the worst is yet to come.

Palast’s new book, How Trump Stole 2020, reveals how the fix is in to steal the election — and how we can unfix it.

Mary Trump won’t tell you…

Mary Trump’s book tells you how little Donald was a whiny grifter even as a toddler.
That’s history. This is now: How Trump Stole 2020 tells you how Trump’s minions have already erased 16.7 million from the voter rolls (guess their color)—I show you how to … READ MORE

John Lewis

John Lewis (1940-2020)

John Lewis, whom we filmed in 2016, was nearly beaten to death in Selma, Alabama in 1965, so that all Americans could vote. He made history. What will WE make? And when?

Trump Re-elected by Five Votes

…It was the Supreme Court—or, more accurately, the Supreme Republican Five—that, only five months before Kemp’s election, blessed Kemp’s Big Purge.

This is it, folks…
A personal request

This morning, Rev. Jesse Jackson said, “Buy Greg Palast’s book now—we need to put it on the New York Times bestseller list as we did with The Best Democracy Money Can Buy.” If we slam the Amazon and Times bestseller lists again, they’ll have to … READ MORE

Roger Stone is not just an impotent trickster
He's a violent, evil man who had a lot to do with fixing the vote in Florida in 2000

Roger Stone is not just an impotent trickster. He’s a violent, evil man who had a lot to do with fixing the vote in Florida in 2000. George Bush supposedly officially won the presidency by 537 votes in Florida — just 537 votes! But 178,000 ballots were disqualified, considered unreadable. A hundred and seventy-eight thousand!!! These were concentrated in Democratic and Black areas: Jacksonville, Gadsden County, Miami-Dade and Broward.… READ MORE

You Are Not Guilty
America, let’s talk...

America, you can stop hiding your face in shame: you are not guilty.
Trump didn’t win in 2016. And I’m not talking about Trump losing the popular vote. Trump lost the Electoral College. That is, he lost if you count all the votes burgled, jacked, swiped, shoplifted, purloined, filched, fiddled and snatched from citizens not of … READ MORE

We Still Have Apartheid Elections

They’re hostile to counting the vote in the US for voters of color and for young people, that’s just the truth. We still have an apartheid vote counting system and they will do everything to get in your way.

There were 7.9 million votes not counted or voters blocked in the 2016 election. That figure is from the US Election Assistance Commission, which keeps track not only of our votes, but … READ MORE

Democracy? Greg Palast & Lee Camp

If We Don’t Have Democracy, What The Hell Do We Have?

Is the 2020 election already stolen? Can we steal it back? (Yes and hell yes!) Why were 17 million Americans purged from the voter rolls between 2014 and 2016? And why aren’t our elected officials screaming to high heaven about all these vanished voters? What’s a provisional ballot? What’s a residual vote? Do we have a functioning democracy? And should we be more worried about … READ MORE
