The Massive Election-Rigging Scandal the Media Ignored


The election of 2016 may have been stolen—or to use Donald Trump’s phrase—”rigged,” and nobody in the media seems interest in talking about this.  


The rigging was a simple process, in fact: in 27 Republican-controlled states (including critical swing states) hundreds of thousands (possibly millions) of people showed up to vote, but were blocked from voting for supposedly being registered with the intent to vote in multiple states.


Greg Palast, an award-winning investigative journalist, writes a piece in the Rolling Stone magazine (August 2016 edition), forecasting that the November 8, 2016 presidential election had already been decided: “The GOP’s Stealth War Against Voters.” He also wrote and produced a documentary on this exact subject that was released well before the election, titled The Best Democracy Money Can Buy.


He said a program called the Interstate Voter Registration Crosscheck had been quietly put together in Kansas and was being used by secretaries of states in Republican states to  eliminate African American, Asian and Hispanic votes in what would certainly be the swing states of the 2016 election.

Crosscheck was developed by Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach back in 2007 under the pretext of battling so-called voter fraud. In the ‘thumb in the eye to the American voter’, the state where Crosscheck started was the only state to refuse to take part in a New York Times review of voter fraud in the 2016 election, which found that, basically, there wasn’t any fraud at the level of individual voters. Turns out, according to Palast, that a total of 7 million voters—including up to:

  • 344,000 in Pennsylvania;
  • 589,000 in North Carolina;
  • up to 449,000 in Michigan (based on available Crosscheck data from 2014)

may have been deprived of their right to have their votes counted under this little known but enormously potent Crosscheck program.


Yes, that’s way more than enough votes to swing the 2016 election to Hillary Clinton and the Democrats. But no one seems to care.


Not Hillary Clinton, not the DNC, not the New York Times, not the Washington Post, not even MSNBC. In fact, on November 26, MSNBC Host Joy Reid ended her interview of Greg Palast by saying, “I wish more people would listen to what you have to say.”

But he was never asked back, by Joy or anyone else at MSNBC.



Why wouldn’t the media and lawyers swoop in to every swing state and demand that every single purged, provisional or uncounted vote either be counted or verified to be illegitimate?


Why is it more relevant to focus on a crazed and completely unconfirmed and untrue claim about 3 million “illegal aliens” voting, but not a claim by a fellow journalist that 7 million American citizens weren’t allowed to have their votes counted?


Yes, Hillary was adamant that we must accept the results of the election, but doesn’t that require legitimate, verified or verifiable results? A coach who questions a call on the field is not challenging the system; he just wants to make sure the result is accurate.


So, maybe investigative journalist Greg Palast is totally wrong. Completely inaccurate. Maybe there weren’t 7 million voters who were at risk of being excluded, with millions of them being handed “placebo” ballots (provisional ballots) that almost never get opened or counted. Maybe it’s only a million or two citizens. The problem is that the Republican secretaries of state are refusing to say, and the press has dropped the topic.


What we do know is that there is a program called Crosscheck executed in 27 states that serves to eliminate voters:

  • Who are not qualified to vote;
  • Trying to vote multiple times;
  • Trying to defraud the electoral system.

And if Palast’s reporting (and interview of Kobach) is true, that system is mainly being used to disenfranchise large numbers of African American, Hispanic, and Asian voters.


In 2000, the United States Supreme Court wrongly ruled that America was not allowed to count the votes that were cast in Florida that determined the presidency of the United States.

In 2016, the Democratic Party and the American media and American people have wrongly decided that America should not count the votes that were not cast in Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and so many other places that determined the presidency of the United States.

The DNC and the press need to get on this story now.
