Kris Kobach claims that MILLIONS of aliens voted in the last election. To stop the Alien Invasion, Kobach, Kansas Secretary of State, wrote and passed a law in the state requiring proof of citizenship to vote. The effect: to knock out one in seven new voters — 22,000 so far — not because they come from another planet or nation, but because they don’t have a passport or original birth certificate to prove they’re citizens.

The lawsuit against Kobach was brought by the ACLU on behalf of the League of Women Voters and five Kansans — including two Air Force vets — who were denied the right to vote because …more

Unsealed Kobach Docs Shed More Light On Tactics For Trump’s War On Voting Rights

Greg Palast 

Kobach memos unsealed.

On Friday, August 6, thanks to a lawsuit filed by the ACLU, a federal judge unsealed two documents relating to Kris Kobach’s proposed amendments to the National Voter Registration Act (a.k.a. the “motor-voter law”).

The first document was a memo that Kobach brought to a meeting with President-elect Trump in November 2016, which was partially exposed during a photo op and revealed that Kobach wants to “stop aliens from voting” by drafting amendments to the National Voter Registration Act “to promote proof of citizenship requirements.” The second unsealed document offers more insight into precisely how Kobach intends to do this. …more

Trump’s GOP Hitman Who’s Stealing
Your Vote – The Best Democracy Money Can Buy Podcast

Greg Palast 

Listen to The Best Democracy Money Can Buy podcast with Greg Palast and Flashpoints’ Dennis Bernstein. This week they expose Donald Trump’s go-to operative who would steal your vote — by accusing you of not being an American. The Vote Rustler of the Week: Kris Kobach, Trump’s man behind SB 1070, the “Driving While Brown” law.


Dennis Bernstein: Welcome to our weekly Election Protection Bulletin with best-selling author Greg Palast. Let’s start in Topeka, Kansas with its Secretary of State Kris Kobach. He’s definitely going head to head with the ACLU there.

Greg Palast: Kris Kobach is the most influential Republican Secretary of State in America – the Katherine Harris of 2016.

He’s one of the very first governmental Republican supporters of Donald Trump. Anne Coulter has said Trump should pick him as his running mate. This guy is an important cat.

What’s he up to? He’s “saving” America from an invasion of aliens – not from outer space, but from other nations, wading the Rio Grande to vote in American elections. He claims there is a mass incursion of illegal aliens coming to the US to vote for Hillary.
