Voter ID Law Handed Wisconsin to Trump in 2016. It Could Happen Again in 2020. On Election Day 2016, a giant hunk of the student vote simply...vanished. And the Milwaukee Black vote also seemed to just...disappear.

Vote-by-Mail Could Cost Dems the Election Unless America radically changes the way we send, receive and count mail-in ballots, the massive switch to postal voting, and the mountain of uncounted minority votes it will generate, could lead to Trump's re-election -- no matter the will of the voters.

Trump may name Kris Kobach new immigration czar The real danger in this "Immigration Czar" appointment: Kobach could organize the purge of young voters and voters of color by the hundreds of thousands just before the 2020 election. For all his antics, don't underestimate Kobach, a graduate of Harvard, Yale and Oxford. The wily lawyer and political hit-man knows that the lawsuits by voter victims wouldn't bite until after the steal of the 2020 election.

How Brian Kemp Illegally STOLE The Georgia Election Abrams was prepared to fight over the provisional ballots. She even got a judge to say count them -- but you can't count provisional ballots which were never handed out. It was a pure steal. And the trick that Kemp used to bleach the voter rolls whiter than white was used by the GOP nationwide. And this is the practice for 2020 -- unless we put a stop to it.
