Michael Moore's Inconvenient Truth: We Have 50 Days to Go in Our No Trump Bid! Michael Moore's latest blockbuster will hit the cinemas this Friday. Don't miss it. I saw it and appreciated it last night, 9/17, but found the Q&A session with him afterward far more interesting though I do refer to the film also. Priceless footage. I hope it scares us all into action with its warning even more dire than Al Gore's in DC nearly 10 years ago, his Inconvenient Truth.

Greg Palast and the Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr. Are Once Again on the Move to Fight for Democracy Greg Palast and Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr. have converged from both sides of the country into its Heartland, Kansas, and will proceed to the South, Atlanta, suing 27 states plus two SoS's running for governor, Kris Kobach and Brian Kemp. They aim to re-enfranchise voters illegally removed from the rolls for the crime of having similar names, not identical ones, even if they live on opposite sides of the country.

REVIEW: Jonathan Simon's "Code Red: Computerized Elections and the War on American Democracy" Review of Jonathan Simon's magisterial 2018 update of his book series "Code Red," wherein "war" becomes the meme in the People's struggle to salvage our democracy from those laboring ingeniously to disenfranchise minority voters and ultimately eliminate voting from what will become the past tense of government of, by, and for We the People. It won't happen, he tells us, if we hop to quickly to revive it. Get to work!

The Election Assistance Commission, established by the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) to help the people vote, has been effectively abolished by a House committee dominated by the GOP.
