Kris Kobach has brought a new weapon to his hunt for the chimerical Fraudulent Voter: A flag-covered military jeep with a mounted 50-caliber machine gun — a toy one. It’s a fitting symbol for Kobach, whose hunt for Trump’s claimed 3 million fraudulent voters has only shot blanks.
Kobach, once thought the obvious successor to Kansas Governor Sam Brownback, is now running …more
Greg Palast, the journalist, shares a brain with Greg Palast the poet and story writer. This is the first time Palast the poet has bothered you with verse—and the last time. I will never send you another poem nor story unless you specifically sign up for my rhymes and fictions.
I was living in Hollywood, this was years ago, working as a sandwich-sign man, jazz drummer and a sperm donor. God knows why, but my girlfriend decided to try out for a film. This is about her encounter with Harvey Weinstein – or, more correctly, one of the 120,000 Weinsteins trolling the arts.
[Caution: language not for the squeamish.]
Audition (for Harvey Weinstein)

“The American voting system is busted. It’s shattered. They’re trying to take away your vote by saying you’re not a citizen, by saying you voted in another state, by giving you provisional ballots for some cockamamie reason, by purging you from the voter rolls. These obstacles are put in the way of mostly voters of color — that’s the real issue. We have an apartheid election system in the United States.” — Greg Palast, Free Speech TV, May 10, 2018
On May 10, 2018, I participated in a broadcast and companion Twitter chat hosted by Free Speech TV and MNN entitled, “Elections 2018 — Voting Rights Under Attack.” The opening featured an interview with me and clips from the updated edition of my movie, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy: The Case of The Stolen Election, which served as a springboard for a panel discussion on voting rights — and the lack thereof …more
While Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un are playing double-or-nothing with the survival of Koreans, Trump’s billionaire sugar-daddy is taking advantage of political upheaval to attempt a seizure of one South Korea’s major employers: Hyundai Motor. Paul Singer, known as The Vulture, is mounting an attack on the auto-maker known for providing life-time union-wage employment for workers. Putting worker welfare on a par with profits infuriates Singer. He sees them as fat targets ripe for takeover and tearing apart.
In our film, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy, we explain how Singer, his Vulture Fund called “Elliott Management,” and Singer’s cronies took over the General Motors auto parts operation (Delphi) — then closed almost every factory, ended all union jobs, and reopened the factories in China.
Here is my interview with Korea’s main newspaper, Chosun Ilbo.
Singer’s goons have said they, “have a file on Greg Palast.” As you can see, I have a file on HIM… …more
This Thursday night, May 17, at 7:30 PM Greg Palast will be Camping Out with Lee Camp in Conversation Unredacted.
At a secret Studio City home location, only 25 political guerillas will be lucky to witness BBC and Rolling Stone investigative journalist GREG PALAST and the great political warrior comedian LEE CAMP spew truths that will make the ruling elites cry.
Look at the photo, her last one, taken a couple weeks ago. A few days before she died.
There’s a message for you there. And it’s way bigger than the IMPEACH TRUMP T-shirt she’s wearing.
What message? It begins in Chicago. 1920s. Her dad, Grandpa Alex, was a milkman, schlepping milk cans by horse-drawn cart.
At the time, a kid could get into the movies for ten cents; and her mother gave her the dime to go every week. For 10 weeks straight, my mother went to the movies, but didn’t go in. For 10 weeks she saved the ten cents, and looked for a warm place in the Chicago snow to wait for her brothers and sisters to come out of the theater.
Until she had a dollar to get her mom a birthday present.
In 1943, during World War II, Gladys Palast was the first woman to enlist in the US Coast Guard.
I wish I could say Mom signed up to lick Hitler. But, truth is, she did it to get out of …more
Sponsored by KPFK, Truthdig, and Women Occupy Hollywood, the night not only includes an hour-long interview of Print but also a live music performance by McGaw and his band who will be showcasing his composition “You & Me” — the companion song to Collusion amongst other songs on his upcoming album. …more
