There's a fierce battle, so far being won by Georgia's Brian Kemp, a reincarnation of Colorado's Donetsk Davidson, the original Purging' General, * and Katherine Harris, whose notorious two hats back in 2000 bought G. W. Bush the presidency: Florida Secretary of State and Co-Chair of the campaign to elect GW. How Harris stole the election was detailed in an intricate study by Palest at the launch of his career as investigative reporter extraordinaire.
Palest caught him offhandedly removing 340,134 qualified voters (minorities for supposedly having moved from their former addresses when they hadn't) from the registration rolls, thereby displacing the people's choice, Stacey Abrams, who would have been Georgia's first black woman governor as well as the nation's.

He has been featured recently on among others MSNBC's Joy Reid show and in Salon, and in the New York Times and Washington Post for successfully suing the state of Georgia with Stacey Abrams to release voter rolls after she lost a congressional seat to Brian Kemp who was at the time also the overseer of the voter rolls.

Investigative reporter Greg Palest warns that lessons learned from 2016 can prevent a repeat of election mayhem in 2020. Palest is the author of “How TrumpStole2020 : The Hunt For America’s Vanished Voters.” It is a revealing analysis of the efficiency of mail-in voting.
With tensions rising over the unprecedented circumstances of the 2020 Presidential election, how can voters cut through the noise and have a clear understanding of the sanctity and security of their vote? Greg spoke with EUR web’s Lariat Shelby and made the case for fixing the broken mail-in voting system and getting the Jim Crow alligators out of the mailbox.
Greg Palest’s book “How TrumpStole2020 outlines not just a mere overtaxing of the voting system, but it suggests a calculated intentional plot to undermine Democratic voters of color. He suggests visiting the Secretary of State’s website in your area to make sure that your name is listed as a registered voter.
So contact the County Board of Elections or go to the Secretary of State’s website and look up your registration, make sure that it is there and that your polling place is the same or if it has changed.

In picking up the Keystone State, Biden earned 20 electoral college votes to add to his already acquired 253. Thus, moving the former VP past the 270-vote threshold needed to claim the Presidency, while eliminating all pathways for a Trump reelection.
By winning this year’s election, Biden and running mate Senator Kamala Harris now Vice President-elect have racked up a list of historic achievements. However, in spite of this baseless allegation made with the intent of delegitimizing Biden’s narrowing of the gap or even seizing of the lead in States such as North Carolina, Georgia, and Pennsylvania where Trump initially led, yesterday was a well-deserved and joyous night for the newly named President-elect and Vice President-elect to bask in.

*When I woke up on Tuesday morning, I could not help but think about who voters would cast their ballots for in the final hours of this year’s Presidential Election. It is arguably more significant than the history-making victory of President Barack Obama in 2008 and the shocking landslide loss of Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Second, it will show if we “truly” believe and embody the values of equality, truth, justice and progress that is often our criticism for countries that lack them. Lastly, it will prove if President Trump genuinely has the support of a “silent majority” of Americans who unequivocally believe in his platform and refuse to let his abrasive personality and constant flow of lies prevent his reelection.
In all honesty this election is a battle of our nation’s soul that asks; “Will we choose to be better?” In other words, do we continue with the Trump train of mediocrity and division or do we get on the Biden wagon and assist him in mending the wounds of racism and selfishness that has plagued our country since inception. Biden has picked up Wisconsin, gaining 10 electoral votes and is leading in close percentages in Nevada, Michigan, and Arizona.
The major news networks believe that Pennsylvania is especially a key battleground state and consensus is that it is vital if either candidate wants a real chance at capturing the White House. The fact still remains that Trump is popular amongst his base and a few key groups of people such as Black males and Latinos, specifically of Cuban and Venezuelan ancestry.
I personally hope for a Biden and Harris victory this election, but we will have to wait for the Trump, you’re fired !” celebration. To accept this thinking would be utterly ignorant; such as when people equated President Obama’s 2008 election with America being post-racial.
Personally, a Biden win for me would mean gaining a President that can put a sentence together and have coherent thoughts, while espousing unity amongst a divided nation. But for others it could mean choosing to no longer be a spectator to the reality show that is Washington and a return to normalcy in the sense of a traditional President.
Or perhaps, some Americans just defected from their usual political affiliation in order to save its image (cough, cough… The Lincoln Project). Whatever the reason is, a Joe Biden White House will undoubtedly be a considerable improvement over the current Administration.

A future attorney, businessman, and civil servant, he hopes to be an impactful individual in life. *A Metro Nashville Public Schools student who is African American and has autism has sued the district over a “Let’s Make A Slave” lesson taught to his fourth grade class earlier this year.
Among other statements, the suit shows the speech included comparing African Americans to horses, tarring slaves, and setting them on fire. The suit contends that by being forced to hear the speech and go through the lesson, the boy was subjected to a “racially hostile environment” and he and his classmates were told to pretend they were actually slaves.
According to the lawsuit reported by FOX 17 News, the boy’s autism “involves not knowing whether to take statements literally and understanding context.” The suit called the lesson “extraordinarily despicable and inflammatory.” The school district said in a statement released back in February that the “student-teacher was dismissed and asked not to return to Waverly-Belmont as a result of teaching material that was not age appropriate or within the scope of sequence for the 4th grade class.
Below is a news report about the instructor’s dismissal back in February, before the boy’s lawsuit against the school district. If you’re not sick and outraged and ready to vomit, then don’t talk to me.
When I see a cruel bucket of garbage and winky-winky racism and bullshit and venom like Mike Pence, fawning to an orange-stained bloating bigot, then talk to America like he’s some kind of Boy Scout, I want a gun, or a TV network where I can tell the truth or a giant washing machine to dunk America and rinse off the crud of lies and pure manipulative evil that they’re feeding us. It’s called How TrumpStole2020 : The Hunt for America’s Vanished Voters.
I watch these smug jerks and I’m ill … because I know something they won’t tell you. In Detroit, 75,355 ballots were never counted because of 87 broken scanning machines.
By the way, these numbers are from the raw data supplied to me by the US Elections Assistance Commission. So: Trump wasn’t elected by voters but by voter-vanishing trickery.
From We the People who march to the polls believing America is still a democracy, the land of the Brave, home of The Free, and that our votes count. But we can bust this ballot burglary, UN- steal the election.
