Charlottesville: A gun in his face, but he got the photo Don't look away. Four white neo-Nazis are beating a Black man, crawling on the ground, with their metal poles and a yellow hunk of lumber. The beating continues -- there's blood on the pavement. Our photographer, Zach D. Roberts, continues to shoot -- even as a white militant raises a 9mm pistol to his face.

GOP States Send Voter Files to Kobach, While Claiming They Will "Resist" His Demand Kobach, who has recently announced his candidacy for Governor of Kansas, has indicated the lists will be used to remove illegal voters. But voting rights advocates say the goal is actually to allow fewer people to vote. Twenty-one states listed by CNN as refusing Kobach his demands for voter files have already turned over voter files to Kobach's office.

Here's what we do now about Election Fraud -- a personal note Being right never felt so horrid. "This is the story of the theft of the 2016 election. It's a crime still in progress." So opens my film, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy. And on Election night I waited for the returns to make a fool of me. Instead, the returns made the fool a President. And so, my vacation's cancelled. My life's cancelled; that is, a life of anything but sleuthing and exposing the details...

Starting in 2013 -- just as the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act -- a coterie of Trump operatives, under the direction of Kris Kobach, Kansas Secretary of State, created a system to purge 1.1 million Americans of color from the voter rolls of GOP--controlled states.

Bernie Should Take Satan's Advice Clinton ran a campaign that basically sneered at idealism. It was the vice-principal telling us, "You can't have universal health care, you can't have low-cost education, you can't bust up the banks. A permanent coalition of Bernie activists will quickly turn that sneer into fear. Because if there's one thing a politician hates more than full disclosure of their donors, it's an informed, organized, and activated voter.

We are heading into a primary where poll workers are going to try to shunt the independent voters to the provisional ballots and get their votes thrown away. If you take a provisional ballot and you are an NPP voter, it will 100% be thrown away because you're not allowed to use that ballot even if they give it to you.

But behind his jokey comments lay a cruelty aimed at the poor, the injured, the Beemer-less class that turns to the Court as the last hope for protection against corporate and state violence. Here's a telling example of Scalia's humor from a crucial voting rights case.

Who Hatched Rubio? I've been on the trail of racist vote suppression tactics since 2000 when Katherine Harris was Purge'n General. And behind so many of the moves to disenfranchise voters, all too successful, is the Rove operation. This is not about whether Rubio or Clinton or Sanders or any other candidate should win. This is about making sure that the ballots, not the billionaires, determine the election.

The answer, Nate, is "Crosscheck." If not for the boost of this voter-roll purge system used in 23 Republican-controlled states, the GOP could not have taken the U.S. Senate.

Novel Idea: Asking an Afghan about Afghanistan The Silk Road nation of Kazakhstan is an excellent place to encounter the dervishes of the Great Game for control of the camel-and-pipeline routes of the Central Asian steppes. Here we can witness the diplomatic-military idiocies of new empires pathetically attempting to ignore the dried skeletons of the imperial forces that went before them.

FBI Spiked Chechen Jihadi Investigation When the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon, I grabbed those FBI files -- and a plane for Kazakhstan, bullying cameraman Rocco D into joining me. [Rocco, no fool, won't let me print his full name.] Here in Astana, Kazakhstan's capital, televisions everywhere run endless loops of the bombs going off at the Boston Marathon, the screams, the blood, the victims... and the questions.

Billionaire Bankster Breaks into Obama's Cabinet Today, Obama has named Penny Pritzker Secretary of Commerce. As the President says, It's a milestone: the first female fraudster to hold that post. No longer will criminal bankers have to lobby the administration - because now they'll have one of their own in the Cabinet.

Bradley Manning & The Deepwater Horizon Manning could have saved the lives of the eleven killed on the Deepwater Horizon: Only after I dove into deep water in Baku did I discover, trolling through the so-called "WikiLeaks" documents, secret State Department cables released by Manning. The information was stunning: the US State Department knew about the (previous) BP blow-out in the Caspian and joined in the cover-up.

How Bush Won The War In Iraq -- Really! Oil men, whether James Baker or George Bush or Dick Cheney, are not in the business of producing oil. They are in the business of producing profits. And they've succeeded. Iraq, capable of producing six to 12 million barrels of oil a day, still exports well under its old OPEC quota of three million barrels. As George Bush could proudly say to James Baker: Mission Accomplished!

Vaya Con Dios, Hugo In one last move, Chavez played a brilliant endgame, naming Vice-President Nicolas Maduro, as good and decent a man as they come, as heir to the fight for those in the "ranchos." The One Percent of Venezuela, planning on Chavez's death to return them the power and riches they couldn't win in an election, are livid with the choice of Maduro. Class war on a chessboard. Even in death, I wouldn't bet against Hugo Chavez.

Too Fat To Vote The Voting Rights Act was the law that Martin Luther King Jr had a dream about a half-century ago: that all citizens will be able to exercise their right to vote. But, like all pleasant dreams, morning means waking up to the ugly reality sleeping next to you.

"I want my fair share--and that's ALL OF IT": The Kochs & the XL Pipeline Why did Koch, worth about $3 billion at the time (now $20 billion) need to pilfer a few bucks from some Indian in a trailer home? Koch answered: "I want my fair share -- and that's all of it." Now "all of it" includes a pipeline, the Keystone XL, which would run the world's filthiest oil, crude made from tar sands, down from Canada to his family's refinery on the Gulf Coast of Texas.

Hugo Chavez Told Me He Won't Sell Oil To The Kochs All the Kochs have to do is get the US government to agree to pop a pipe through Cushing to Houston: the Keystone XL. But that would require that the US government go stark raving mad, commit environmental suicide and reverse all policy to slow global warming -- all to bring in foreign oil while the US itself is suffering from a major oil and gas glut.

Aaron Swartz Died For Piers Morgan's Sins In 2000, Aaron Swartz, aged 14, had just released his astonishing invention, RSS, liberating news and information. Around the same time, one of Piers Morgan's stringers hacked into the phone of Sir Paul McCartney's wife and stole some highly personal, and highly valuable, information. But Piers is serving time on prime time while Swartz was prosecuted and driven to commit suicide.
