Don't be fooled by news of Trump's Executive Order dissolving the so-called Commission on Election Integrity. Trump is not ending the Kris Kobach scheme to attack, he's moving it into Homeland Security as per Kobach's original plan.

Kobach gloats that Homeland Security is exempt from Freedom of Information Act demands and public hearings -- that was part of his original plan given to Trump.

Kobach claims Homeland Security can REQUIRE states to turn over voter records and can secretly gather lists of "double" or "alien" voters -- this is Kobach's "Crosscheck" on steroids.

The one Democrat on Kobach's committee, Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap, warns: "Homeland Security operates very much in the dark...and I think people should be, frankly, frightened by that."

Kobach will be advising Homeland Security and that's MORE dangerous than operating through an open committee.

This is not a win for progressives -- it's a brilliant chess move by KKK (Kris Kobach of Kansas).

I have been an avid fan of Greg Palast since he first broke the story behind the Florida election in 2000. Knowing what went on, and knowing that it continues it varying forms, should be enough for the citizens here, not to just throw up their patties in despair, but to fight openly for truly free and fair elections. Despite the sickening outcomes of both the 2000 and 2016 elections, where the 'minority vote' winners won (and both were awful, IMHO), it has happened 3 other times in our history. Seems like the power elite don't give a hoot about popular vote, as the outcome is literally manipulated in favor of corporatists and the MIC. Citizens United is a great misnomer. The Electoral College effectively ignores all the minority votes in all but 2 states...hardly a representational government. The real citizens voted for Gore and Hillary (after the DNC effectively got rid of Bernie). The job for the 'real citizens' is now much harder, but not impossible. Unless we effectively demand it, no positive change will be coming.

The voters for both Trump and Hilary were real citizens. Hilary had a strong record of evil while in office, Trump had a strong record as a crook in business, prior to the 2016 election. Trump won a bunch of votes on one of Obama's campaign points: hope for positive change. Neither delivered.

The election was not rotten primarily due to the electoral college. It was rotten because US politics produces the worst candidates, and the worst voters too.

Why are Liberals so frightened of voter verification?

Where I live the state driver's license bureau will give people a picture card I.D. for free. TransVac will transport anyone who can't afford transportation for free.

Where is the proof that anyone anywhere has been denied a chance to vote because they couldn't get identification?

To paraphrase an older idiom: "Me thinks you protest to much".

I agree in principle that voyer ID is a reasonable requirement. However, it is well documented that in some states acceptable ID is not always easy to get.

It is well known that some states have denied people the vote without making any attempt to verify ID, by invalidating voter registration without legal cause.

in some states, you need two forms of I.D. - one with a picture - just to GET a voter I.D. card, especially if you don't drive. How many people even have picture I.D. cards if they don't drive? That's how this voter i.d. thing really works; disenfranchises the poor and minorities - which is exactly the plan. And as pointed out, just because you have an I.D. doesn't mean that voter machines will recognize it, or pollsters. Corruption happens everywhere and so far, voter repression and fraud is the biggest corruption in elections - NOT "voter fraud."
