Your Vote – The Best Democracy Money Can Buy Podcast

Greg Palast 

Listen to The Best Democracy Money Can Buy podcast with Greg Palast and Flashpoints’ Dennis Bernstein. This week they expose Donald Trump’s go-to operative who would steal your vote — by accusing you of not being an American.

Just Google “Karl Rove Meltdown,” and you’ll see a video from Fox News election night, he did not take it well.

After the knock-down of the Voting Rights Act by the US Supreme Court earlier this year North Carolina jumped at the chance to …more

The Idiot’s Guide to the Voting Rights Act

Will the Supreme Court pull the teeth out of the law?
by Greg Palast for TheMudflats.net

This month –as early as tomorrow— the US Supreme Court will tell us whether Black and Brown citizens have the right to vote.

Now, if you saw the film Lincoln, you probably thought that issue was settled about 143 years ago. But Honest Abe never imagined a High Court occupied by Dishonest Thomas and Scalia the Scurrilous.

There’s been a lot of nonsense talk fogging the issue before the Court. To cut through the BS, the Palast Investigative Fund has made a little film, How Do You Steal a Dream?

You could call it ‘The Idiot’s Guide to the Voting Rights Act.’ The idiots, of course, are …more
