Many Ways to Support Between The Lines' Bringing Progressive Voices to More Listeners

With Google's, Facebook's and the Trump administration's attacks on "fake news" that threaten long-standing, independent media resources like Between The Lines, we are facing new challenges. From keeping up with technological changes, to the the FCC plans to dismantle Net Neutrality and allow right-wing Sinclair TV (aka "Trump TV") in 72 percent of U.S. households, we need your support as we continue to raise another $1000 by the end of this year.

Please donate now to help keep progressive voices and viewpoints on the airwaves. See our thank you gifts for your donation.

"Hispanic, black, Asian American names – blue voters. Democratic voters, and that's minority voters; 85 of 100 of the most common names in America are minority names."

– Greg Palast, investigative journalist and author, on Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach Election Integrity Commission's plan to remove millions of illegal "double" voters by looking only for first and last name matches

Trump's 'Election Integrity' Commission on Mission to Purge Millions of Non-GOP Voters

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

voting

Not long after Donald Trump won the presidential election with the required Electoral College majority, he falsely claimed that he had lost the popular vote to Hillary Clinton by some 3 million votes because millions of illegal votes were cast for the Democratic candidate. While Trump’s accusation is baseless and has been repudiated by both Republican and Democratic state officials, the lie was a central rationale to justify an executive order establishing the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity. The commission, chaired by Vice President Mike Pence – and whose vice chairman is Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach – has been tasked with studying vulnerabilities in federal elections that can lead to fraudulent voter registrations and fraudulent voting.  Story continues

Supreme Court To Hear Pivotal Case on Partisan Gerrymandering

MP3 Interview with Drew Spencer Penrose, legal and and policy director with the group FairVote, conducted by Scott Harris

voting

While Donald Trump emerged as a victor in the 2016 presidential election by winning the majority of Electoral College delegates, he lost the popular vote to his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton by nearly 3 million ballots. One of the critical states in determining Trump’s narrow victory was Wisconsin, which he won by less than 1 percent of votes cast. Yet, Trump led Clinton in 63 of the state’s 99 Assembly districts and 23 of the state’s 33 state Senate districts.  Story continues

DACA Supporters Express Solidarity with All Immigrants Targeted by Trump

MP3 Excerpts of speeches by DACA recipient Eric Cruz Lopez and immigration attorney Joanne Lewis at a recent DACA hearing, recorded and produced by Melinda Tuhus

DACA

On Sept. 11, U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut sponsored an emergency field hearing on immigration issues at the New Haven church where Marco Antonio Reyes had taken sanctuary for more than six weeks, since he was ordered deported to his native Ecuador. Blumenthal said such hearings can’t be held in Washington, D.C. under the Republican congressional leadership, but he hoped to take the stories he heard back to Congress to bolster efforts to pass the Dream Act that would allow undocumented youth to work or attend school legally in the U.S. and put them on a path to citizenship. Before the hearing, President Trump had rescinded Barack Obama's executive order known as DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, that would take effect in six months, declaring that Congress can use that time to pass legislation allowing these undocumented young people to remain in the U.S.  Story continues
