    PURGE-ATORY! HOW VOTERS LIKELY TO VOTE DEMOCRATIC WERE DISENFRANCHISED "SWINGING" THE ELECTION WELL BEFORE NOVEMBER 8. A BLAST FROM GREG PALAST. THE "CROSS CHECKING" SCAM.
    During the campaign Donald Trump, anticipating the possibility of losing, accused the Democrats of "rigging" the election. Evidently he was right about the rigging but he lied about the perpetrators. Greg Palast is an investigative journalist who has reported on what are now three elections (2000, 2004, 2016) "stolen" by the  Republicans. Some of the details the machinations that resulted in the "purging" of over one million voters, accomplished by Republican election officials over a period of several years by "cross checking" and other tactics. The details of how Republicans in many states (including the "swing states) purged largely black and Hispanic registered voters, who tend to vote Democratic, from voter rolls are reported in Mr. Palast's August, 2016 article "The GOP's Stealth War on voters published in Rolling Stone Magazine.
    "Democracy Now" has reported that, as a result of a federal judge's order stopping the recount in Michigan demanded by Jill Stein of the Green Party, over 75,000 ballots, in a mostly from black neighborhoods in Detroit and Flint were never counted in state where, according to Palast, Trump's margin of "victory" was just over 13,000 (Shades of the recount termination in Florida in 2000.)
     And so, while much attention has been directed at the 538 members of the Electoral College, which "elected" the candidate who lost the popular vote by almost three million votes, it is apparent that the Republicans (chief among them Trump pal Kris Kobach, Kansas Secretary of State, who devised the "cross checking") literally disenfranchised enough mostly minority voters likely to vote Democratic) to purloin the election well in advance of November 8.
