When the Supreme Court struck down the Voting Rights Act in 2015, we learned that the 2016 election would be the first in two generations without the basic protections for equal voting rights for all people. The Voting Rights Act challenge was bound up with the passage of voter suppression laws in states where the GOP/Tea Party had taken office in the 2014 midterm elections, laws that re-implemented unconstitutional poll taxes, literacy tests, and other notorious techniques for keeping poor and racialized people out of the polls.

Money can buy candidates airtime but not the voters’ approval

>>>Right to Rise spent more than $86 million over the course of the campaign, according to NPR. But none of that money could help Bush stand up straight next to Donald Trump on the debate stage, nor could it mitigate the withering effect of Trump’s “low energy” moniker for Bush.>>>
>>>Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio each had his own war chest. Funny story about those guys . . . In sum, the amount of money spent by super PACs specifically against Trump exceeded $42 million. Not only were candidate-aligned super PACs unable to elevate their candidates, but anti-Trump super PACs were unable to knock out Trump.>>>
>>>What about the Democratic primary? Hillary Clinton defeated Bernie Sanders; the headline “You’ll Never Guess Which Democrat Has More Super-PAC Money” would bait no one into clicking. Clinton outraised Sanders $93 million to $4 million in outside money. Yet Sanders mounted a remarkably successful campaign for a crotchety old socialist from Vermont>>>

Mass Shootings Make Sense In A Democracy

In the wake of yet another mass shooting in America – this time, with the added bonus of being a Muslim terrorist attack – the mainstream media has been treating us all to a smorgasbord of adjectives with twisted and debased meanings. Evil becomes tragic, deviancy becomes familiar, and a perfectly-calculated and well-planned attack becomes ‘senseless.’ Pick any adjective, then pick your preferred meaning.

EXPOSED: Fuel fatcats are using Brexit as an EXCUSE to rip off British motorists

Big corporations have been using the “cloak” arguments about post-Brexit Britain which do not stack up to justify sky-high prices at the pumps, a leading campaign group has unearthed.

FairFuelUK has revealed how, even though wholesale oil prices have tumbled since June 23, the amount it costs to fill up a family car has not budged at all.

The group, which is campaigning to bring down Britain’s fuel prices, said the “only reason we can find to justify this is speculation driven by a cloak of supposed market uncertainty”.

15 Years of Fighting for 9/11 Truth

By The Conscious Resistance

Since September 11, 2001, a growing number of people from around the world have publicly questioned the official story of the 9/11 terror attacks. For 15 years architects, engineers, actors, scientists, pilots, firefighters, activists, and family members of the victims have raised a wide range of questions related to the funding of the attacks, the physics of the building’s collapse, the possibility of controlled demolition or other exotic weapon use to bring the buildings down, and much, much more.

For the 15th anniversary, the collective “9/11 Truth” movement will descend on New York City to protest and rally in the streets. The activists will rally at Ground Zero and other important sites throughout the city. There will also be a conference hosted by Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth and NYC activists. The conference will feature prominent figures who have questioned the government’s version of events over the last 15 years.

Reich claims “there has never been any finding that Hillary Clinton engaged in illegal behavior.” This proves him wrong

Robert Reich, the proud friend of Hillary Clinton since she was 19 years old, says, “there has never been any finding that Hillary Clinton engaged in illegal behavior.”

Everyone except the Obama Administration has “found” that in her handling of her State Department emails, she broke at least the following six U.S. federal criminal laws (none of which laws was so much as considered by the FBI’s ‘investigation’, because it’s too obvious that she did what these laws describe — that she violated each one of these laws):

It took nearly three hours for France's terror alert app to respond to Nice attack

The app, called SAIP (Système d’alerte et d’information des populations) was released by the French Interior Ministry on iOS and Android in June, ahead of the Euro 2016 soccer tournament. According to the ministry, the app would provide users with alerts and information within 15 minutes of a terrorist attack being confirmed. But it apparently took much longer to send out alerts following last night's attack in Nice.

Newt Gingrich: Merely Visiting An ISIS Or Al Qaeda Website Should Be A Felony

Merely visiting a website should put you in jail? What if you're a journalist? Or a politician? Or a researcher trying to understand ISIS? That should be a felony? That's not how it works. This also assumes, idiotically, that merely reading a website about ISIS will make people side with ISIS. It's also not, at all, how the law works.
