"No one has told our story of our missing voters like Greg Palast" - Rev. Jesse Jackson.

Follow investigative reporter for Rolling StoneThe Guardian and Democracy Now! Greg Palast as he hunts for the vanished voters of Trump's America.

Yes, the election's stolen but Palast shows you how to steal it back!

"Read this book. It might just save us! Greg Palast is the most incisive journalist on elections. Plus he's @##$% hilarious." Josh Fox, The Young Turks

Palast lets you in on the nasty secrets of Trump-merica's democracy:
    One in five mail-in ballots are never counted.
    The chance of your vote being thrown in the garbage is 900% higher if you're Black than if you're white.
    16.7 million voters were purged from the rolls in the past two years. Guess their color.

In How Trump Stole 2020, you meet the scamps, scoundrels and grifters (or "Governors" as we call them in America) doing the dirty to voters of color. Check out the photo of Palast confronting GOP Governor Kemp of Georgia whom Palast catches under a neon pig at a bar-b-que joint to ask Kemp if he's wiping away Black voter registrations to steal the election. The response: Palast gets busted.

The book includes an exclusive interview with Stacey Abrams on vote thieveryand a 48-page comic book from the piercing pen of Ted Rall.

You may know Palast as the fedora-wearing gum-shoe old-school investigative reporter who busted the theft of Florida in 2000 for The Guardian and in his New York Times bestseller, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy.

"Palast is one of our great investigative reporters. If you are not outraged by what Palast has uncovered, you have no heart. A searing indictment of our rigged electoral system." Chris Hedges, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist

"Palast's work is invaluable for our community." —LaTosha Brown, Black Voters Matter

How Trump Stole 2020: Greg Palast & Noam Chomsky, moderated by Amy Goodman

If your vote didn’t matter, they wouldn’t fight so hard to block it

Greg Palast and Noam Chomsky in conversation, moderated by Amy Goodman




Join us on Tuesday, July 14, at 7:00pm for a conversation on voter suppression with Greg Palast (How Trump Stole 2020), Noam Chomsky (Requiem for the American Dream), and Amy Goodman (Democracy Now!).

Purchase of a copy of the book is required for admission. Orders will be fulfilled by Book PassageThird Place Books, and Word Up Community Bookshop/Librería Comunitaria.

Vote theft was once considered to be a marginal issue that no one wanted to talk about, but as the stakes have risen and the facts have become known it is now recognized as one of the central issues deciding our presidential elections. The scope is staggering. In the Georgia 2018 midterm election alone—the testing ground—Republican voting officials quietly removed half a million voters from the voter rolls. How Trump Stole 2020 is the story of the racially poisonous schemes to steal the 2020 election, the political operatives behind the trickery—and the hard right billionaires funding it all, written by the investigative reporter who has been covering this story from the outset.

DATE/TIME: Tuesday, July 14th, 7:00 pm EST/4:00 pm PST

PARTICIPANTS: Greg Palast, Noam Chomsky, Amy Goodman

COST: $20 including price of How Trump Stole 2020


Greg Palast

Born in Los Angeles in 1952, Greg Palast worked as a government consultant and an investigator for labor unions before turning to journalism full time. A self described “reporting investigator” as opposed to an investigative journalist, he became a writer in order to alert a wider public to abuses he saw committed by governments, corporations, politicians, and lobbyists. For years Palast wrote a column for the Guardian called “Inside Corporate America,” and his articles have appeared in magazines and journals including the Nation, Harper’s, and In These Times. Palast’s 2002 bestseller The Best Democracy Money Can Buy, which covered in detail the fiasco of President Bush’s victory in Florida in 2000, appeared in 2002 and served as the basis for his documentary film Bush Family Fortunes. Palast lives in Los Angeles.
