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.

McAuliffe put an end to Virginia's strange and inexplicable participation in a GOP voter suppression trick that reeks of Jim Crow. Since 2013, this stealth voter purge program has cost tens of thousands of Virginians of color their right to vote. It's called Interstate Crosscheck. The Crosscheck hit list is racially biased in the extreme. The lists are little more than compilations of common names.

To do this, oil companies send PIGs -- Pipeline Inspection Gauges -- through their pipes. However, the data they send back is only as good as the computer code used to analyze it.

Twenty-one states listed by CNN as refusing Kobach his demands for voter files have already turned over voter files to Kobach's office.

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.

Crime Scene -- New Orleans Nine years ago this week, New Orleans drowned. Don't you dare blame Mother Nature. Miss Katrina killed no one in this town. But it was a homicide, with nearly 2,000 dead victims. If not Katrina, who done it? It wasn't an Act of God. It was an Act of Chevron. An Act of Exxon. An Act of Big Oil.

Just this month, the Obama administration authorized BP to return to drilling in the Gulf.
