Rob: Great to have you back. What are you up to
Making a movie, Best Democracy money can buy, a tale of Billionaires and Ballot Bandits.
How Katherine Harris shoplifted the election for George W. Bush-- by accusing black men of being ex cons.
Of 55,000 on the list, not one was a criminal.
Hunting up billionaires all over the globe buying up
knocking off minority voters. aim-- to keep the senate for Republicans
Not only Republicans are stealing elections.
NY Democratic party-- Hillaryistas-- shoplifted a good hunk of the vote. In this case it was the King's county Democratic party-- Brooklyn-- 125,000, half the number of votes counted, were blocked. Those people filled out an affidavit, in most states called a provisional ballot. It's really a placebo ballot. They end up throwing them away.
The US keeps a count of no-counts. After 2000 they said you have a right to a ballot, but you don't have a right to have it counted. According to US federal statistics, about 2.5 million ballots in any national election get thrown in the garbage.
There's also purging-- usually done by the Republicans--
But something very unusual happened-- it happened to White folks.
End of voting rights act, in 2013, said that places with racial bias could not not
It applied to Kings county and it was under justice dept special scrutiny and could not have happened if the act was still in effect.
Arizona was republicans practicing for November. No long lines in highly contested republican primary.
Basically the Supreme court ordered the voting cops off the beat.
We estimate that about 5.9 million votes that have been flushed down the toilet in the last few elections.
new trick, out of Kansas, is going to take away a million votes.
Trump claims people are voting multiple times.
OVer past four years there have been about 2 billion votes cast and about three people have been caught.
These claims is always an excuse to stop mostly people of color from voting.
Interstate Cross Check
Interstate crosscheck. Kris Kobach, the Katherine Harris of 2016.
He's the guy who wrote Arizona's "driving while brown" SB 1070 law and Justice Department filed a criminal complaint against Sherriff Joe Arpaio, because the targets mostly vote blue.
Southern POverty law center calls Kobach a racists and supporter of hate groups.
Ann Coulter said that Kolbach should be Trumps running mate.
Thought 3 people have been convicted, they say that there are 7 million suspects.
Who's on the list
John Jackson, John Black, David Lee, Jorge Rodriguez-- people with common names of color.
if you get your name on this list as a suspected voter, you get a postcard that looks like junk mail. If you don't return the card you lose the vote.
Seven million people under criminal investigation.
Only reason your would be on that list if there's another voter in another state with the same first and last name in a different state.
So, middle name doesn't matter. They don't even know it and they're
They're going to knock off about a million voters.
They've knocked off 44,000 in VA already.
The Democratic officials in VA don't even know it's being done.
in NC they haven't found one of the
Elmer Cross Barnes Jr. in NC,
There was another ELmer Barnes 3rd in Georgia
He didn't vote once, so now, he won't be able to vote in NC
OH, VA, NC and FL will be the states that determine the election.
And AZ should be a blue state, but they have been purging dark voters.
What about Karl Rove?
he's getting about half a billion through American Crossroads.
I know Rove. He should be in prison. He's in charge of the Republican vote suppression machinery.
He says Trump will not only lose but take the senate down with him.
We have a person who registers Republican
Rubio, OH, Ayotte"
Rove is saying the senate is in great danger.
Crosscheck knocks off Chunk, yuen, lee and Mohammed.
Rob: Who was behind Brooklyn?
King's county machine-- one of the great democratic machines.
In Brooklyn, it's only Democrats, so it's always Democrats they don't like
That's what they do, they knock off voters they don't like and they were helping Hillary.
Most Americans don't vote in midterm elections. If you didn't vote before, you can lose your vote.
The Brooklyn machine, King County Dem party wanted to deliver for Hillary.
Exit polls showed their unadjusted numbers Bernie just lost by 4 percentage points. But the official count as 16%. Bernie was crushed and that knocked the wind out of his sails and donations were cut.
is there any hope for their
NY Public Interest Research group, headed by Neil Rosenstein, is filing a motion that all of those affidavit ballots will be counted and those people will be put back on the voter rolls.
I don't think the ballots will be counted but I think the people will be put on the voter rolls.
Rob: Tell me about Fukushima
In NY I directed an investigation of nuclear plants, we found that guys who build nuclear plants lie. about the cost, about the safety.
Stone and Webster was found guilty of conspiracy, racketeering and fraud charges against.
I have the notebooks which say that the earthquake proofing had been faked.
In the case of Fukushima, one of the lies spread by the US media, like Anderson Cooper, was that no-one expected a 9.0 earthquake to hit Fukushima.
The nuclear plant a t Fukushima, was well under the tolerance Fukushima was supposed to handle.
All the emergency Diesel generators failed. Same used by all the plants-- most are old cruise ship engines. They are supposed to snap on when there's an accident. But cruise ships warm up their engines for h ours before torquing. So, when the Nuclear plants need the power, they have 12 seconds to fire up. So they fail. They know they will fail. They are like Xmas decorations.
There are some "greenies" who say we should resuscitate the Nuclear industry-- like Obama.
Rob: So, Stone and Webster are the ones who built Fukushima.
They are literally rebuilding Fukushima, with a new name, Shaw Construction.
They are the problem. They are the danger.
