On Tuesday, the trial of the lawsuit by the League of Women Voters against Kobach, Kansas’ Republican Secretary of State, began in a Kansas City courtroom. The League has sued to block the state’s law, drafted by Kobach, requiring all new voters to show proof of citizenship.

Kobach’s law has blocked an astonishing 1 in 7 new registrants from voting in the state because ...more

Kobach Citizenship Proof
Voting Requirement Goes To Court

Greg Palast 

March 6 – Catch Greg Palast on the Thom Hartmann show, 1pm ET (10am PT) Wednesday. Palast will report on the trial of the ACLU and League of Women Voters versus Kris Kobach, Secretary of State of Kansas, which began today.

Clip from Palast’s film The Best Democracy Money Can Buy
 

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

Judge Moore’s Campaign Chief
Directed Illegal Voter Caging

Greg Palast 

In 2004, BBC TV exposed Brett Doster, now Judge Roy Moore’s campaign chief, for illegally “caging” Black, Hispanic, and Jewish voters, a crime explained by Bobby Kennedy, Jr. in our film, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy.

The Palast team got our hands on highly confidential documents from inside the George W. Bush campaign giving “BDoster@GeorgeWBush.org,” their Florida chief, one of several secret lists of voters to challenge.

They’d sent letters, for example, to soldiers at their home addresses, where they were legally  registered, while they served overseas.   When the letters came back to the RNC as “addressee not home,” the “caged” letters were used …more

America Cannot Be Great Again
Until America Is Good Again

Greg Palast 

By Lance Simmens | Guest Commentary

Joe Stalin said, it’s not who votes that counts, but who counts the votes.  Having been involved in political campaigns and politics at all levels of government for the past forty years, I can attest to another maxim that is equally as important on election day, in any election, and that is that the side that does the best job of getting out the vote (GOTV) usually wins. …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
