Will There Be Mass Vigilante Vote Challenges on Election Day?
Greg Palast talks to Thom Hartmann about his new film, and how the challenges it exposes are spreading across the US

While Georgia may be the only state that allows a single person to challenge the rights of an unlimited number of voters, in other states Republican activists are getting around this by filing thousands of single challenges. This raises the possibility that … READ MORE

Contents of Alex Jones’ phone set to implicate Trump
Jan 6 rally organizers communicated with Trump Chief-of-Staff Mark Meadows

The contents of Alex Jones’ cellphone — which were accidentally handed over to the prosecution in their entirety by the shock jock’s own lawyers during the Sandy Hook defamation trial — could provide proof that Trump and members of his administration were directly involved in the planning of the illegal … READ MORE

Steven Donziger: A corporate criminal prosecution, orchestrated by Chevron

On October 1, 2021, human rights lawyer, Steven Donziger, was given a 6 month sentence — punishment for winning a $9 billion judgment against Chevron for poisoning the Amazon.

When he began his sentence at the federal prison in Danbury, CT, we began posting clips from this interview each week to keep his plight in the public eye. As Donziger approaches the end … READ MORE

The January 6th Committee and the 7 sets of phony electors
"You can smell the mendacity and the subpoenas”

The January 6th committee has subpoenaed 14 GOP operatives from 7 states to ask them who is behind their very strange, and very dangerous attempt to overturn the election, by providing 7 sets of phony electors. They want to know who was behind this scheme, because it’s a fraud upon the government and looks like a crime. Chairman Thompson, I’m going to give you a hint… READ MORE

There were 29 phone calls between Trump and Raffensperger
What was said in those other calls?

The Republicans, including Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, were playing fast and loose with accusations of voter fraud. I wouldn’t be surprised if… READ MORE

They can imprison Steven Donziger, but they cannot silence him

On the morning of Steven Donziger’s sentencing hearing, I spoke extensively with the human rights attorney about his extraordinary case.

Fact Injection: Donziger v. Chevron

This is the first time in history that a private corporation has criminally prosecuted a U.S. citizen. In an unprecedented move, a judge asked Chevron’s lawyers to prosecute Donziger for criminal contempt — after the Department of Justice had refused to do so. No jury would convict Donziger, so the judge refused him a jury trial and found him guilty. On October 1 this judge is going to sentence Donziger. He could get six months in jail—on top of the two years he’s already served under house arrest—so I want you to… READ MORE
