Kris Kobach’s Brilliant Chess Move

Greg Palast 

Progressives are always looking for a "victory," a pony hiding in the horseshit. We saw this when most states claimed to reject Kris Kobach’s request to turn over their voter rolls. In fact, governors were lying (Mississippi and Louisiana) or too ignorant (Virginia) to ...more

Civil Rights Groups Challenge Indiana’s Use of Crosscheck:
Lawsuit Cites Palast's Work On Kobach's Racist Voter Purging Program

Greg Palast 

I am thrilled that the NAACP and the League of Women Voters are using our Crosscheck investigation evidence to stop Jim Crow in Indiana. Only 27 states left to go. Next target: Virginia, where a so-called Democrat, Terry McAuliffe needs to dump Trump’s Crosscheck purges.

The lawsuit, which was filed on Wednesday, August 23, challenges Indiana Senate Bill 442 which changed the way the state implemented Crosscheck. Previously, when an Indiana voter was flagged by …more

Here’s what we do now
A personal note by Greg Palast

Greg Palast 

Being right never felt so horrid.

“This is the story of the theft of the 2016 election.
It’s a crime still in progress.”

So opens my film, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy.
And on Election night I waited for the returns to make a fool of me.

Instead, the returns made the fool a President.

And so, my vacation’s cancelled. My life’s cancelled; that is, a life of anything but sleuthing and exposing the details of the heist of our democracy.

What’s at stake?
No way around it, this is one frightening moment.

Decades of progress created with sweat and determination face destruction.  Within the next six months, we may see the Voting Rights Act repealed-and civil rights set back 50 years; the entirety of our environmental protection laws burnt in a coal pit; police cruelty made our urban policy; the Education Department closed to give billionaires a tax holiday; and a howling anti-Semite as White House Senior Counselor.

But the horror we face is countered by this one hard and hopeful fact:  …more

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
