Election Hoax 2016 FACT: The white population is rapidly declining in the U.S. and worldwide. At the same time, Latino, Asian and Black populations in the U.S. are growing inexorably. Numerical inadequacy and vulnerability fuels the practice of racism here and abroad. [MORE] Racists must practice racism to survive. This election was the first post Voting Rights Act election and Jim Crow was in effect.
FACT: 'The GOP's white votary is 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]
According to investigative journalist Greg Palast millions of non-white voters were purged by Interstate Crosscheck. Crosscheck has nothing to do with electronic voting or Russians.
The program, launched by racist suspect, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, was designed as a method to counter voter fraud through so-called "double voting." Double voting occurs when the same person registers to vote in more than one state and then casts multiple ballots on election day in different states. It is a felony criminal offense. With no factual basis or evidence of actual fraud - that is no prosecutions, arrests or convictions, the GOP has claimed that double voting is rampant in the US.
Interstate Crosscheck removes a voter from the voter list if the voter's name appears 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 (30 states participate). 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.
How was the list manipulated? 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.
For instance, if the common name "Jose Garcia" appears on voter rolls in Wisconsin and Michigan it was removed from the rolls in both states without any cross referencing for middle name or social security number. When "Jose Garcia" appeared to vote on election day he would be given a provisional ballot -which would never get counted.
This inherent 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. Thus far, Palast's claims have not been refuted.
Trump victory margin in Michigan: 13,107
- Michigan Crosscheck purge list: 449,922
Trump victory margin in Arizona: 85,257
- Arizona Crosscheck purge list: 270,824
Trump victory margin in North Carolina: 177,008

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]
Electionomist Greg Palast explains that Michigan officials declared in late November that Trump won the state's count by 10,704 votes. Yet a record 75,355 ballots were not counted. The uncounted ballots came mostly from Detroit and Flint, majority-Black cities that vote Democratic. The votes went uncounted because Blacks in Detroit and Flint voted on old, broken down voting machines. An astonishing 87 machines broke down in Detroit, responsible for counting tens of thousands of ballots. Many more were simply faulty and uncalibrated. Detroit is bankrupt, so every expenditure must be approved by "emergency" GOP overlords appointed by the Republican governor. The GOP operatives refused the city's pre-election pleas to fix and replace the busted machines. [MORE] and [MORE]
