Cancel Culture: The Scourge of the Voter Purge

Hundreds of thousands of voters have been struck from the voter rolls and they have no idea. There’s no question that this attack on the voter rolls is affecting voters of color and young people. Asian Americans, African Americans, Hispanic voters are being removed by the hundreds of thousands from the voter rolls of America. And this could absolutely change the outcome of … READ MORE

ACLU, citing Palast investigations, stops Crosscheck in Indiana

Our 2016 report for Rolling Stone exposing Kris Kobach’s Interstate Crosscheck purge program was cited several times in a lawsuit filed by the ACLU for Common Cause as the evidence that Kobach’s system of removing tens of thousands of voters in Indiana was both wildly inaccurate and racially biased in the extreme. This past week, Federal District Judge… READ MORE

You have people registered in two states. They’re registered in New York and in New Jersey. They vote twice. There are millions of votes in my opinion. – Donald Trump

Don’t laugh. Trump’s claim that millions of Americans are voting twice, a felony crime, is the principal reason… READ MORE

LaTosha Brown: They’re constantly skimming votes
Palast in conversation with the co-founder of Black Voters Matter

“We’re seeing the same old problems that our community has seen in the past, which we know are all forms of voter suppression,” laments Black Voters Matter co-founder LaTosha Brown. “We’ve got to hold people accountable… And there’s some people that have got to, not only be held accountable in the sense of being put out of office, but there are some people that should face some charges… READ MORE

Why didn’t the Justice Dept indict Kobach as well as Bannon?

The wire transfers of $250,000 and $100,000 that Steve Bannon and Brian Kolfage were indicted for would have to be approved by the We Build the Wall foundation’s general counsel — Kris Kobach. The payments were in direct violation of the foundation’s by-laws. Furthermore, Kobach used the non-profit’s donor list to raise money for his Senate run, normally a felony crime. I worked with the Justice Department on racketeering cases. You don’t… READ MORE

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.

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?

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

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
