White Presumacy. The white population is rapidly declining in the U.S. and worldwide. At the same time, Latino, Asian and Black populations are growing inexorably. White people's numerical inadequacy and vulnerability fuel the practice of racism here and abroad. [MORE] Racists must practice racism to survive - this includes rigging elections.
Electionologist and investigative journalist Greg Palast, explains 'the GOP's white votary was not large enough to elect Donald Trump. That is, it is too small unless the GOP quietly builds a secret blacklist of millions of voters, especially voters of color, and systematically and quietly wipes out voter registrations.
In 2016 the voter erasing system was built and GOP operatives put it into action. Its name: Interstate Crosscheck. Crosscheck along with thousands of votes intentionally not counted in Black voting areas, such as Flint & Detroit chose the president and determined who controls Congress.' [MORE]
Palast reveals that millions of Black, Latino & Asian voters were removed from voter rolls in swing states by Interstate Crosscheck, a so-called "voter fraud" program created by the GOP. Thirty (30) states participate in Interstate Crosscheck. Palast calls Crosscheck the "Great White Hope Machine."
Interstate Crosscheck removed voters from the voter list if a voter's name appeared to be registered in more than one state. Around 7 million names were put on the list of “potential double voters” before the 2014 election. Crosscheck then compares each state’s list with lists from other states in the program. Specifically, according to Palast, the Crosscheck list contains 7,264,422 voters.
Although the Crosscheck program aims to prevent individuals from voting in more than one state in the same election, Crosscheck has been doing the exact opposite and is used to remove legitmate voters from voting rolls. Greg Palast has claimed that before a single vote was even cast, the election was already fixed by Trump operatives who eliminated millions of legitimate African American, Latino and Asian voters from the voter rolls in North Carolina, Ohio, Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.
An investigation in Rolling Stone found that Crosscheck uses a biased and questionable methodology that puts voters with African-American, Latino, and Asian names in greater danger of being purged from the voter list and being falsely accused of double voting. Crosscheck supposedly matches first, middle and last name, plus birth date, and provides the last four digits of a Social Security number for additional verification.
However, in practice a quarter of the names on the list did not have a middle name match or were only partially the same name. The list contained thousands of errors. The system also neglected to take into account designations of Jr. and Sr., and did not include any Social Security numbers to croscheck whether the suspected voter is the same person.
An overwhelmingly disproportionate number of non-whites have been removed who have typical Black, Latino and Asian last names and who reside in predominately minority zip codes. Names such as Jackson, Garcia and Wong in areas such as Detroit, Milwaukee and Philadelphia. U.S. Census data shows that minorities are overrepresented in 85 of 100 of the most common last names. “If your name is Washington, there’s an 89 percent chance you’re African-American,” says Palast. “If your last name is Hernandez, there’s a 94 percent chance you’re Hispanic.” Finding these common names the GOP targeted non-white voters and put them on the list and then stopped them from voting on election day.
Now take a look at a couple of "double voters" on this Crosscheck list:
This is typical of the Crosscheck "suspects." Above it says that James Elmer Barnes Jr. of the state of Georgia supposedly voted a second time in Virginia as James CROSS Barnes III.
In other words, the only evidence that these two names represent one criminal voting twice is that the first and last names match. That's all. Nothing more.
Look at the second "double voter": James Ratcliffe Barnes Jr. of Georgia is accused of voting a second time in the state of Virginia—even though the second voter has a different middle name (Anthony) and has no suffix added to his name.
While state government officials could not locate Mr. Barnes, the alleged double-voting criminal to arrest him, Palast had no trouble locating him. Mr. James Elmer Barnes Jr. told said he had never used the middle name "Cross," never been "III" (the "Third"), and never been to the state of Virginia, let alone voted there.
Georgia and Virginia officials wouldn't explain why these clearly different Mr. Barnes were still on the suspect list. Indeed, the Republican officials wouldn't talk to me at all.
Neither state arrested a Mr. Barnes for voting twice (that is, they did not arrest James Elmer Barnes Jr. nor James Cross Barnes, who are in fact two very different people). Rather, both states prepared to remove them from the voter rolls. Both Messrs. Barnes are about to lose their right to vote, that is, be removed from voter rolls.
How odd. If you rob a bank and get caught, the police don't close your bank account. They arrest you and send you to prison. Here, Mr. Barnes is accused of a crime punished the same as robbery, yet he is not arrested.
And that's because Mr. Barnes is innocent—both Mr. Barneses are innocent. Clearly. But, without a trial— indeed, without their even knowing it—both men could lose their right to vote.
Now, take a look at the longer list of suspects above. Everyone is named James Brown. That is, for example, James S. Brown is supposed to be the same voter as James Howe Brown Jr.
What is the evidence? Only that each voter has the first name "James" and the surname "Brown." Like the late soul singer.
According to Palast there are 27,456 people in the USA named James Brown. According to Crosscheck, they must be a criminally minded family. According to Crosscheck, thousands of people named James Brown are vorting twice. [MORE]
And the elite media has yet to even acknowledge Palast's findings. Such is the nature of the system of white supremacy/racism.
The inherent racial bias in the Crosscheck database results in an astonishing one in six Hispanics, one in seven Asian-Americans and one in nine African-Americans landing on what Palast dubs “Trump’s hit list.” His investigators calculated 1.1 million non-white people, many spread over crucial swing states were deprived of their right to vote on election day.

Enough votes to swing the election away from the Hillary Clinton victory predicted in polls – explaining suspicious exit polls inconsistencies – and towards a "suprising" result for Trump and Republican victory in the Senate. [MORE] and [MORE]
