Politics: A Step-By-Step Breakdown Of How Trump Stole The Election (Video)

And wait… this is NOT a pro-Clinton post either. Keep reading and watch both vids…to the very end!

In short, here are the two major steps detailing how the Trump campaign stole the election: (1) votes that were never counted and (2) interstate cross-check. Greg Palast (you saw our earlier post on here featuring him right?) goes in-depth about the ‘strategery’ in this two-parter. Start above, continue after the jump.

Politics: Greg Palast Speaks On How Voter Suppression Sealed Donald Trump’s Victory (Video)

Wowww… Cross Checking. Damn, they stay scheming, right? Actually, voter suppression is only part of the problem with getting truly fair and open elections. A good chunk of the problem is STORY suppression! Why is this only being talked about on outlets like DemocracyNow and podcasters like Margaret Prescod? Wonder if even they would know to cover such without investigative reporter Greg Palast exposing these political underbelly scum tactics.

If you’re Black, you’re 900% more likely to have your vote disqualified than if you’re White.

A must watch. The 15 minutes goes by fast. Feel free to watch twice to really get it.

Politics: Ed Asner Takes Less Than 9 Minutes To Explain Things To The 99% In This Animated Piece (Video)

Incredible work… incredibly infuriating to some politicians and the super-rich (oh well)… by legendary actor Ed Asner. C’mon son. Why you mad though? Asner was the voice of mega-wealthy Ed Wuncler on ‘The Boondocks.’ He’s one of you. Maybe it’s the truth in it all that is hurting you. A plain talk explanation of why things are currently f####d up with the U.S. economy, who’s really to blame, who’s enabling them (looking at you, money-grabbing politicians), and who is fed up with it all. All in a Schoolhouse Rock sort of animated clip (no music though).

Ha! Bet some folks on ‘Capitol Hill’ were shouting some ‘Interjections’ when they saw this. You know, some of them could lose their jobs this coming Tuesday (go vote)!

(And watch for Mr. Asner’s explanation of ‘Trickle Down Economics’…)

Politics/Activism: Comedian Lewis Black Says, ‘F#%! Voter Suppression!’ (Video)

No need for a political action committee (PAC) to raise a ruckus… just raise the ire of a politically informed sharp-tongued don’t give a WHAT comedian, like Lewis Black; and step back! By this video’s end, I hope you are laughing; because that’s what Mr. Black does for a living. BUT, I also hope you are thinking… no GOING to vote this November. Remember, this ain’t the sexy elect-the-first-whatever election. This is to elect Congresspeople, state and local officials – folks whose decisions (or indecision) DIRECTLY affect our lives. Folks who are only a short drive, and a kicked-in door frame, away. Vote for ’em and stay on ’em and you WILL get results. You want to get active about Trayvon and stand-your-ground? About Ferguson and Mike Brown? About your car’s license tag tax being so costly? About your f#cked up dimly lit roads full of potholes?

WELL GET MAD LIKE LEWIS AND GO VOTE! You don’t even have to fight cops, dogs and fire hoses. But you DO have to show up for the fight! Bring your ID (why wouldn’t you?), your voter registration card (order a copy if necessary), your decisions on the candidates and bills on the ballot (read a paper, Google, watch some local debates), and your not-gone-let-nobody-turn-me-around attitude to your polling place (call your City Hall and ask them, if you don’t know where that is) on November 4, 2014.

Otherwise, those who do show up (and yeah; it’ll probably be folks controlled/brainwashed by those WAY richer than you) WILL vote. And in that case the ‘privileged’ few, having spent gobs of dollars to keep you and your people away from the polls (again), will WIN. Again. And that’ll be on you. But not me… Not on my watch!
