End PG&E's Reign of Error With a Hostile Takeover The only thing more dangerous than leaving PG&E in the hands of its current mis-managers is the proposal to give control of PG&E to the financier known as "The Vulture," Paul Elliott Singer of Elliott Management.

The Las Vegas Shooter, Two Years Later Just like veterans of the Vietnam War who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder even after five decades, so too losers of the class war can be driven mad by a PTSD that lingers, that gnaws away their whole lives.

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.

What We Must Do Now: Abrams, Georgia And Something Extraordinary I have been investigating Brian Kemp for five years. And I remember in 2014 shocking a Legislator, Stacey Abrams, with Kemp's purge lists. She told my al Jazeera audience that she was furious that "our Secretary of State" was spending his time attacking the voter rolls. Little did I imagine they'd be squaring off years later, and Kemp's voter-roll monkey business would be decisive in the ugliest way.

Georgia Voter Purge Victim: "This Was a Strategy From Kemp" Abrams' legal team is fighting to count every ballot -- including those provisionals, as well as the piles of absentee ballots rejected under Kemp's rules -- to force Kemp into a run-off. The fact that Kemp is blocking legitimate requests for provisional ballots will make the push for a re-run that much harder.

Purged Voters' "Provisional" Ballots Could Decide Georgia Governor Race "Federal judges may feel differently about Kemp's right not to count these provisional ballots," says Jeanne Mirer, lead attorney on the lawsuit filed against Kemp in October. If the court determines that Kemp misused his power as Georgia's "Purge'n General" it could order that those provisional votes be counted.

How the "Bernie of Mexico" Won the Presidency AMLO has won a crushing, too-big-to-steal victory in Mexico's presidential election. And while the Good and Great told him he'd be finished if he kept protesting the stolen election, he made counting every vote the very first of his five-point campaign platform. He understands that even those with empty stomachs also hunger for democracy.

Why we are suing Ohio and Kansas -- We CAN Reverse Purges The doors to the truth are opening. Ohio's Husted has now given us the name of every single voter purged in the last decade. But we need the details of who got postcards, who returned them, and why he sent these voters postcards in the first place. And we need copies of the junk mail that stole Ohio's democracy.

Ohio's Junk Mail Trick Led The Supreme Court To Approve Jim Crow Vote Purge Even the Court's right-wing majority concedes that federal law strictly forbids removing voters because they skipped some elections. The National Voter Registration Act of 1993 states that a voter purge program "shall not result in the removal of the name of any person ... by reason of the person's failure to vote."

Mom's Last Message For You In 1988, Mom was a delegate to the Democratic Party Convention in Atlanta. But the maids and janitors at the Atlanta Marriott were on strike. My mother donned her red-white-and-blue outfit, added a mop and bucket -- dressed union pickets with the same outfits -- and challenged the Democrats not to cross the picket line. It put her and her mop on the cover of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Gladys Palast 1921 -- 2018 On Friday at 11am, Mom will be memorialized at Miramar Military Cemetery. My father, who gave away his combat medals to protest the War in Vietnam, will have his ashes interred beside her; each will receive a full military color guard. Mom taught us how to make noise, make trouble and make a difference -- in our little tract home in San Fernando Valley, filled with extraordinary idealism, humor, confidence, caring and love.
