"Kris Kobach, secretary of state of Kansas, was in with Trump to resurrect and expand a program that existed under President Bush that would have required Muslim immigrants from certain countries to register."

– Drew Courtney, communications director of People for the American Way, on why his group and other civil liberties activists believe the "Muslim registry," proposed by President-elect Donald Trump is unconstitutional and destructive to the fabric of American democracy.

Opponents Organize to Block Expected Trump Muslim Registry and Jeff Sessions' Attorney General Nomination

MP3 Interview with Drew Courtney, communications director with People for the American Way, conducted by Scott Harris

registry

Throughout the 2016 presidential election campaign, GOP candidate Donald Trump, now president-elect, trafficked in racism, hate speech, and scapegoating of ethnic and religious minorities. The many days of anti-Trump protests in U.S. cities and towns after he won the state-by-state Electoral College vote, while failing to win the popular vote, were inspired in part by Trump’s campaign promises to deport 11 million undocumented Mexicans in the U.S. and build a wall the length of the U.S. southern border. The real estate billionaire also pledged to ban the immigration of Muslims into the U.S., and institute a national registry for Muslims already living in America.  Story continues

GREG PALAST: GOP Wrongly Purged More Than 1 Million Votes, Changing Election Outcome

MP3 Interview with Greg Palast, investigative journalist and author, conducted by Scott Harris

stolen

The victory of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in the 2016 U.S. election was a shock to his supporters and opponents alike due to the critical mass of statewide and national polls that had confidently predicted a win for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Exit polls, too, had forecast that Clinton would be the next president, but discrepancies between exit polling and actual vote totals led many observers to suspect that the election outcome was somehow rigged in favor of the GOP.  Story continues

Maine Becomes First State in Nation to Adopt Ranked Choice Voting System

MP3 Interview with Kyle Bailey, campaign manager with Maine’s Committee for Ranked Choice Voting, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

rankedchoice

On Election Day, Maine became the first state in the nation to approve a ballot measure establishing ranked choice voting, also known as instant run-off voting. It's a method that enables citizens to vote for the candidates they really want, and to rank other candidates as their second, third or even fourth choices for any given elected office. A number of cities across the U.S. already use Ranked Choice Voting, including San Francisco, California; Portland, Maine; Takoma Park, Maryland and St. Paul, Minnesota.  Story continues
