WILL MANCHIN BLINK?…THE ESCALATING WAR OVER AMERICAN DEMOCRACY

 
In our Grassroots Emergency Election Protection Zoom #55, we again dash through the ever-shifting playing field of the immediate present and daunting future of American democracy.  

 
As West Virginia Senator JOE MANCHIN indicates he will support major voting reforms, we examine exactly what he might be willing to do.  Some is pretty good, including making Election Day a national holiday, a general guarantee of 15 days’ early voting, alterations to ID requirements, automatic voter registration, computer-based counter-measures against Gerrymandering, and more.
 
This compartmentalization of the FOR THE PEOPLE VOTING RIGHTS ACT could have huge impacts on our future elections if Manchin and AZ Senator KYRSTEN SINEMA will bend on the filibuster that has jammed the US Senate into a deathly Mitch McConnell coffin.
 
We hear from CHARLES MORELAND on DC on the upcoming DREAM MARCH FOR DC STATEHOOD, GREEN JOBS & JUSTICE.  
 
GLORIA TINUBU and RAY MCCLENDON fill us in on the horrendous attack on voting rights in Georgia.
 
RAY LUTZ brings us more new from insane Arizona, from which election documents have somehow found their way to Montana.
 
JULIE WIENER fills us in on the disastrous failure of the New York Legislature to ban hybrid electronic voting machines that can allow our elections to be stolen.
 
We also discuss state-based crises in attempts to overcome gerrymandering in Virginia, Ohio, Colorado and Oregon, with the outcomes very much in doubt.
 
As this war over American democracy continues to rage, our activism becomes ever more critical.  Don’t miss out on the deadly details.
