Kobach Behind Scheme to
Ask Citizenship in Census

Greg Palast 

Tom Hartmann and Palast discuss the implications of the new citizenship question on the 2020 census.
As soon as I heard Trump was adding the question about whether you have a non-citizen in your household to the census I smelled Kobach. He’d already suggested it in a secret memo that we caught a glimpse of during a meeting in November, 2016 with Trump.

The GOP’s basically turning the census into a giant caging operation to get rid of real citizen voters by asking if you have a non-citizen in your household. They want to scare people off from voting and they want to scare people off from filling out the census. …more

Jerry Quickley And Greg Palast Discuss The War On Voting Rights

Greg Palast 

You’re more likely to be hit by lightning than commit voter fraud, but they’re using the myth of double voters to eliminate real voters — who are almost always voters of color. However, they can’t steal all the votes all the time. It’s really important to understand that. …more

Gov. McAuliffe, End New Jim Crow
Voter Suppression Tactic

Greg Palast and Gary Flowers for the Richmond Free Press

President Trump, who is unfit to serve, alleged that millions of Americans were registered or “voting many, many times” in two or more states in the same election — a felony.

In June, Gov. McAuliffe laughed off these claims of mass voter fraud as nonsense and denounced the Election Integrity Commission as “a tool to commit large-scale voter suppression.”

Furthermore, the governor flatly refused to hand over Virginia’s voter files to Mr. Kobach.

What Gov. McAuliffe did not say — and apparently did not know — is that Virginia already had turned over the files to ...more

New #TrumpStoleIt, Post-Election Edition Of “The Best Democracy Money Can Buy” Available Now!

Greg Palast 

The massive success of our film, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy — which was first released two months BEFORE the 2016 election and predicted Trump would win (and how!) — has led to demands from NAACP, ACLU, Transformative Justice Coalition for an update. This post-election edition is subtitled: The Case of the Stolen Election.

Over TWO MILLION have seen the original version of our film — and it’s had one hell of an impact: The NAACP and League of Women Voters have sued the State of Indiana to stop Kris Kobach and “Crosscheck” voter purges based on our film’s findings. After viewing our film, Indivisible and the ACLU have drafted legislation to kill off the Jim Crow Crosscheck operation in Illinois. …more

Do I have to set my hat on fire?

Greg Palast 

Do I have to set my hat on fire to get America’s attention?


I released a movie last year, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy, that told exactly how Trump and his billionaire buddies were going to steal the election.

DID ANYONE LISTEN? YOU did — but the Dummycrats and the pin-head media already bought their party dress for Hillary’s inauguration.

So I’m trying again:

Today, this moment, I’m releasing the new Trump-Stole-It update of our hit film. DOWNLOAD  IT HERE NOW

I was going to sub-title it: “This time, pay attention!” But instead, the new subtitle is: The Case of the Stolen Election.

It will be released commercially next year. But you can get it right now — here, and only here, for a tax-deductible donation to the Palast Investigative Fund.

Warning: If you get “Best Democracy” on Amazon or iTunes, you’re getting the OLD version.


The NEW edition tells you exactly how Trump pulled off the heist. Follow me as I hunt for 75,355 missing ballots in the snows of Michigan. And as I find the voters from Ohio to Arizona who were shafted out of their vote. Voters of color — Hispanic, Asian-American, Black — and all “Blue.”

Get the download of the feature length film right now, right here; or donate for the DVD which comes off the presses in …more

Crosscheck Overwhelmingly Purges Legitimate Voters, New Study Finds
Researchers From Stanford, Harvard, Yale, Penn, and Microsoft Independently Corroborate
Our Work

Greg Palast 

Hall-Trump-elujah! Profs finally back up what I’ve been screaming for years. The Kobach-Trump Crosscheck program is the Alt-Right Godzilla of voter suppression.

One Person, One Vote — Crosscheck Study

“We find that one of Crosscheck’s proposed purging strategies would eliminate about 300 registrations used to cast a seemingly legitimate vote for every one registration used to cast a double vote.”

And even that 1 in 300, say the profs from Stanford, Harvard, Penn, Yale and Microsoft, is probably just clerical error. …more
