We’re thrilled to welcome tenacious election security advocate Jennifer Cohn, who was an early and brave voice in documenting the attacks on the 2016 election and the broader threat of vulnerable election infrastructure. We ran an excerpt last week for Patreon subscribers — here is the full interview where we ask Cohn what happened in 2016 and what safeguards have been taken since then to secure our election systems.
America 2020 is a land of cults – personality cults, death cults, conspiratory cults, and a transnational crime syndicate masquerading as a government that binds them all together! We examine how the GOP has abandoned even the pretense of a platform in favor of blind worship of Dear Leader, Donald Trump and a dynastic kleptocracy run by Ivanka and Jared. We delve into Jared’s latest dirty deals around the world, and warn of the consequences of allowing an anti-American crime family to retain power.
We look at signs of hope in the midst of this darkness, including young Democratic representatives who understand the severity of the American crisis and have the potential to rebuild our country – if complicit and complacent elites would get out of their way.
After a two-week break, Gaslit Nation is back! This week we continue our documentation of the ongoing shitshow we call 2020, starting with the dismantling of the US Postal Service by newly appointed postmaster general Louis DeJoy. And then we discuss Tom Cotton’s dream come true in Belarus.
Sarah Kendzior and Andrea Chalupa are experts on authoritarian states who warned America about election hacking years before 2016. Here, they take a deep dive on the news, skipping outrage to deliver analysis, history, context, and sharp insight on global affairs.
This week we discuss the capture of child trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell and what comes next. We move on to Trump’s traitorous countenance of the Kremlin-Taliban bounty on U.S. troops, and what Putin’s ultimate goals are for his puppet in the White House.
