Trump and the GOP are playing us AGAIN. By attacking vote-by-mail as being highly prone to fraud by voters (it’s not, BTW), he’s tricked the establishment Dems into a full throated defense of it. Why is that a problem? Because voting by mail DOES have a major flaw, but IN TRUMP’S FAVOR: many, and I mean MANY places have managed to put regulations and shady tricks in place to cause MILLIONS of mailed votes to be discarded by those we’ve trusted to COUNT them. And whose votes are the most likely to be discarded? College students, black people and low-income city folk… in other words, demographics the GOP does very poorly with.
But don’t take my word for it. Greg Palast has it all laid out in his book, “How Trump Stole 2020”. I am providing a link for you here to get your own copy. Don’t be fooled into JUST voting by mail: be sure to steal your vote BACK.
Also in the episode: figures don’t lie, but liars do figure, and that’s never been more true than with the current pandemic. Listen in on how to properly understand the numbers, and how to tell when someone’s abusing them to distort reality.
Finally, we talk about the federal response to Portland’s BLM/George Floyd protest, and how those aren’t ACTUALLY all FEDERAL agents bring used against the protestors.
Don’t miss this episode of TMI, fresh from its return to WSUM!
