The mass removal of 183,000 #Ohio voters from the rolls is a clear violation of the National Voter Registration Act gregpalast.com/ohios-junk-mai… #NVRA #PurgeByPostcard
With attorney Robert Fitrakis of Columbus, #Ohio, and Jeanne Mirer of New York coordinating our national legal effort, we'll prove these removals are illegal as we did in #Georgia where our team is working with @StaceyAbrams@FairFightAction. gregpalast.com/suing-ohio-kan…

😱 #Ohio is set to purge 235,000 voters from the rolls TODAY!!! The state ALREADY removed 265,000 voters from the rolls in January, so with this latest purge, half a million voters will have been removed so far this year. huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/ohio-vot…
Ohio is using the same discredited, biased #PurgeByPostcard game our team is fighting in #Georgia. Our experts say the method is over 70% wrong. That’s 200,000 voters in Ohio set to be wrongly purged TODAY!!! gregpalast.com/georgias-brian…
Bob Fitrakis, a top #VotingRights attorney, has already notified #Ohio's GOP Secretary of State, Frank LaRose, that he plans to sue in federal court under the National Voter Registration Act. This purge is a CRIME, and when they steal Ohio they steal the nation. #NVRA

ALERT: Neo-Nazi Organizing “Salute to President Trump” Rally, September 14 in #Dahlonega, #Georgia

Chester Doles, a longtime neo-Nazi & “fourth-generation” Klansman, is organizing rally in downtown Dahlonega, GA 9/14
atlantaantifa.org/2019/08/16/ale…

#LumpkinCounty #racism #noklan #gapol
Despite the #Dahlonega rally being organized by a notorious neo-Nazi with a history of violence, the national director of Bikers for Trump - Dale Herndon - has pledged his support.

#BikersforTrump #NeoNazi #klan #Georgia
Looks like the local #LumpkinCounty #GOP also give a nod and a wink to the Nazi-organized event.

Cuomo: "What would you do if the President said, 'I am a racist'"
Kobach: "Then I would not defend him."
Cuomo: "Would you still support him as President?"
Kobach: "I don't know."
Cuomo: "You have to think about whether or not you would support a racist?"
#KrisKobach has a long history of racism. He started out as a lawyer for a white supremacist group called FAIR, which says its purpose is to maintain a European majority America. podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/pal…
#KrisKobach's the author of SB 1070, which the ACLU calls the Driving While Brown law. And he's very proud of the fact he came up with the idea for Trump's wall — and that Mexico would pay for it. gregpalast.com/trump-may-name…

1. Dear Foreign Minister Lavrov, thanks so much for noting of my recent visit to #Georgia. I certainly don't oppose amicable relations between neighbors, but when your country occupies 20% of Georgian territory, is that really amicable? <cont'd> tass.com/world/1065468
2. I've noticed your country has been moving the occupation line deeper & deeper into Georgian territory, depriving #Georgians of access to their farms and livelihood. Is that how you normalize relations? (NB: I see you're trying this in #Ukraine too).
tabula.ge/en/story/12182…
3. Also, I read that in February your deputy, Mr. Karasin, threatened Georgia with an ultimatum stipulating it either abandon Euro-Atlantic integration or "unpleasant surprises" await. Is that standard diplomatic language for normalizing relations?

Dear @WSJ,

Sorry, Mr. Rove, but #StaceyAbrams’ claim that the 2018 gubernatorial election was corrupted is hardly "unsupported." Our team found a half million-plus Georgians were purged from voter rolls by #BrianKemp in the year before the election. wsj.com/articles/stace…
They lost their vote on the ostensible grounds they’d left the state or voting county. We found 340,136 of those voters had never moved from where they originally registered. But Kemp took away their right to vote — while he was running for Governor. gregpalast.com/georgias-brian…
Mr. Rove is correct in stating these citizens were purged in accordance with #Georgia’s "Use It or Lose It" law. But that law only acts as an "alternative means" recognized by the National Voter Registration Act for determining if a voter has moved. truthout.org/articles/gops-…

Ok about this whole #Georgia boycott. Any state that passes laws that endanger women's reproductive freedom also endangers their health. We all know this, no matter how much the forced birth advocates want to pretend that isn't true. #StopTheBans
Any employer that will consider doing business in Georgia has to consider the risk to any female employees that they will send there.
An ectopic pregnancy, even a miscarriage, can be fatal if it isn't treated because they detect a heartbeat.
In Ireland, Savita Halappanavar died of an untreated miscarriage that turned into sepsis because doctors could still detect a heartbeat. Her death galvanized Irish citizens to overturn their draconian abortion laws. American States are now working overtime to pass them.

#Ukraine and Republic of #Georgia changed #rulesoforigin in their trade agreement. They replaced the existing ones with rules identical to those used in Europe’s origin cumulation zone known as the Pan–Euro–Med (PEM) /1

ukrinform.net/rubric-economy…
PEM allows for cumulation of originating materials between countries within the zone. Meaning firms can treat materials from PEM members as their own when exporting to other PEM members (conditions apply). This change will allow the Ukraine/Georgia #FTA to work under PEM /2
Once ratified, "Ukrainian producers will be able to import raw materials and components from Georgia, recycle them in Ukraine and export them, for example, to Germany with Ukrainian certificates of origin with zero or preferential duty rates" /3

#Alabama, #Ohio, #Missouri, and #Georgia have begun the @GOP's orchestrated attack on women with restrictive abortion laws.

Make NO mistake this is NOT about protecting life. It is a hostile GOP and their #WarOnWomen restricting #WomensReproductiveRights and #WomensHealth.
Highly restrictive abortion laws are not associated with lower abortion rates! Whether legal or prohibited the number of abortions taking place remains relatively unchanged. Highly restrictive abortion laws simply prevent SAFE abortions.
In countries where abortion is completely banned or permitted only to save the woman’s life or preserve her physical health, only 1 in 4 abortions were safe; whereas, in countries where abortion is legal on broader grounds, nearly 9 in 10 abortions were done safely.

I’m proud to announce my endorsement of Senator @RonWyden's election security bill, the PAVE Act.

This bill would ensure secure & accurate federal elections by requiring paper ballots, which would be subject to the voter’s verification before counting. 1/
bit.ly/2YAKttl
The PAVE Act would prohibit the use of paperless machines, like those used in the 2018 elections here in #Georgia, where election security experts found deeply flawed vote counts that could have had a dramatic impact on the outcome of our election. 2/
In my race for Lt Gov, we saw a suspiciously large drop off of almost 160,000 votes, although those voters did cast ballots for remaining down ballot races.

As has been reported by multiple data security experts & news outlets, this is highly unusual. 3/ ajc.com/blog/politics/…

Dear fellow white males,

Even though I'm outnumbered 2:1, we're going to have this conversation. Since I want to ensure I have your attention, here's a picture of boobs with a gun.

1/
#Alabama #Georgia #Ohio #WomensRightsAreHumanRights
Have that out of your system? No? Well, I'll find more. Bigger guns. More boobs.

So let's talk about your mom's pussy and the fact that your father or father figure is probably a gigantic asshole.

2/
He is a gigantic asshole because when you were a little boy, you respected and cherished your mother. But your gigantic asshole of a father did not. Children have to be taught things like what to be scared of and what to hate and what values to cultivate.

THE GOP IS OUT OF CONTROL

1. Any Dem who says we need MORE evidence for #impeachment or that they're worried about the optics, shouldn't be in a leadership position.

2. Instead of MORE candidates joining the 2020 race, we need some to start withdrawing.

WOMEN ARE UNDER ATTACK

I've been in politics for two decades and I've seen my party steadily lose ground to the rightwing onslaught. Women are now facing #Gilead in states like #Alabama, #Georgia, #Ohio, and more. The Republican Party is an extremist threat.
ACCEPT OUR FAILURES. AND FIGHT SMARTER.

I look at my own efforts working within the Democratic establishment to bring about change. And I see failure. I want to do better. I ask Dem leaders to look in their hearts and ask what they've done wrong. How did we let things get here?
