Palast Fund gives FREE Rent of Hit Movie
Today, Monday & Tuesday

Greg Palast 

 

Yes, the hit film featuring Rosario Dawson, Shailene Woodley, Willie Nelson and a look inside real live Rolling Stone investigation exposing the scheme that’s swiping a million votes in North Carolina, Ohio and the states that pick our President and Senate.

The soul of this nation is on the line.  So,…

with the very generous approval of our distributor, I am releasing our film while it is still completing its sold-out, smash-hit runs in Hollywood, New York and nationwide—for no charge until midnight on Election Night.

America needs the film more than we need the money (though, we DESPERATELY do need money—read below).

For the last few days leading up to the election, you can view the complete film that John Perkins calls, “Hilarious, totally entertaining, heart-breaking and absolutely MUST be seen by EVERYBODY.”

… And for now through Election night, it’s stone cold free.

No tricks.  Free.  Though I am asking those of you who can, to make a tax-deductible donation when you stream the film.

Most important is that you pass on this link to your friends, fellow activists — and especially to your …more

I’d love to tell what Palast dug up
But then I’d have to kill you…

Greg Palast 

“…a wild and woolly ride, peppered with moments of wry sardonic humor that would make Dashiell Hammett smile. There’s so much more I’d love to tell you about what Palast dug up. But then I’d have to kill you. So you’ll just have to see “The Best Democracy Money Can Buy” for yourself.”
– Paul Rosenberg – Salon | READ THE FULL REVIEW

The film’s out and playing to packed houses — and now the sequel, after a decade’s wait, to the book that rode the top of the Times list for nearly a year and Howard Zinn called, “The most important political tome of the century.”

Get the book (signed) that busts the theft of the 2016 election BEFORE IT HAPPENS.  Trump says the election’s rigged.  He should know:  his buddies are rigging it.

And I rip back the curtain that’s hiding the money behind the Donald.  Trump only PLAYS a billionaire on TV — I name and get in the faces of the big bucks behind the big blond. And — cover the children’s ears — the billionaire bandits behind Hillary, too.

And the new Best Democracy comes complete with a 44-page comic book by gonzo cartoonist-journalist Ted Rall.  (Rall joins us from the LA Times from which he was fired for committing journalism.)

Or get the all-new “Best Democracy” sequel right now from the usual suspects (Amazon, B&N, Indiebound).

Here’s a better idea:  Get the new book AND the new film on DVD—not yet available in stores—for a tax deductible donation of $85.  Donate NOW — and if you do it by Monday, I’ll sign’m and send’m within 48-hours.

About that film—based on my reports for Rolling Stone, BBC and Democracy Now!   As in the book, I hunt down the glove-puppet politicians who are mucking with the voter rolls, the NEW Klux Klan—and expose the billionaires whose fingers are in the gloves.

But in the film I’ve got a little help.  When I’m stumped on the investigation, Detectives Tutola and Munch (Ice T and Richard Belzer) jump out of the …more

Greg Palast 

best_dem_movie

Academy Award nominee Josh Fox has seen The Best Democracy Money Can Buy and says that it’s “brilliant - not just as a piece of reporting but as cinema.” Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Chris Hedges, says Palast’s film is “wonderful, really humorous and brilliant…” And TeleSur’s Abby Martin says that Palast “calls these mother-f***ers out.”

The Best Democracy Money Can Buy is now playing in Los Angeles and soon moving to theaters across the country.

Tickets available now for San Francisco (Oct 14-20) – Get them while they last!

Coming soon: Seattle (Oct 21-27 and Washington, DC (Oct 28 – Nov 3). We also have one day Gathr screenings in Oak Creek, WI (Oct 24), Smyrna, TN (Oct 26), Denver, CO (Oct 31), Houston, TX (Nov 1), Chicago, IL (Nov 2), Teaneck, NJ (Nov 4). You can sign up your own town to get a screening of The Best Democracy Money Can Buy here.

As Gasland’s Josh Fox says:  Once you have this information, you know, you have to pass it on. There’s a specific kind of outrage that I think only the work of Greg Palast can evoke. And it is the outrage that when we realize that our democracy is being taken away from us. And that there isn’t anyone in the mainstream media aside from Greg Palast reporting on this with any reliability or accuracy or passion or intelligence – and that is itself a crime.

Big Oil Threatens Academia, Again

Greg Palast 


This week on Democracy Now, 350.org’s Bill McKibben was on the program to discuss Exxon’s “thuggish” attempt to threaten Columbia journalism students after they published an investigation into Exxon’s climate lies.

It’s not news to anyone who follows my work that big oil likes to use their financial sway in higher education. Back in 2009 I wrote about the Deputy Director of the Louisiana State University Hurricane Center, Ivor Van Heerden who was pushed out of his job when he started talking too much about how Big Oil helped drown New Orleans.

I don’t get to use the word “heroic” very often. Van Heerden is heroic. It was van Heerden who told me, on camera, something so horrible, so frightening, that, …more

Roast Goldman Sachs’ Chestnuts
on an Open Fire

Greg Palast 

Call me crazy, but I’ve couldn’t stop myself:  I’ve made a film about the scoundrels, scalawags, scumbags and bankers just in time to roast their chestnuts on an open fire.

Vultures and Vote Rustlers combines my favorite eight investigations for BBC-TV  and Democracy Now into a one hour film that will make you howl with laughter — and with anger—or your money back. …more

Get The Film That Got Us Busted:
Big Easy To Big Empty

Greg Palast 

New Orleans DVD

Just released today: Big Easy to Big Empty DVD– the real story of how the White House drowned New Orleans and holds it underwater today. Donate at least $30 (tax-deductible) to our investigative reporting foundation and I’ll send you, signed, the one-hour-plus broadcast. The DVD includes Amy Goodman and me on New Orleans as the front line of the class war.

On August 22, my producer and I were charged by the Department of Homeland Security with violating anti-terror laws — we upset them for filming the bad guys. While the charges were dropped (whew!) we still have the film — originally made for Democracy Now! and LinkTV. …more
