This Week on Between The Lines

Posted Nov. 30, 2016 for week ending Dec. 9, 2016

"In Michigan, for example, there was something like 80,000 to 90,000 ballots that were scanned that didn't register a presidential vote. There were only 11,000 votes separating Clinton and Trump. The Michigan state election officials ... say nothing is wrong, but this becomes an example of well, let's take a look. Verify it, don't take anybody's word."

– Steven Rosenfeld, journalist with AlterNet.org and author of "Count My Vote: A Citizen's Guide to Voting," on several examples of voting system irregularities that prompted Green party candidate Jill Stein's recount efforts in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

Election Recounts in Key Battleground States Will Reveal Deep Flaws in U.S. Electoral Machinery

MP3 Interview with Steven Rosenfeld, journalist with AlterNet.org and author of "Count My Vote: A Citizen's Guide to Voting," conducted by Scott Harris

recount

Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein has captured national attention in this anxious post-election period by calling for recounts in the battleground states of Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. Despite Stein’s own view that the recounts won’t likely change the election outcome, the two-time Green Party standard bearer says she’s launched the recount drive to draw attention to serious questions that have emerged about the integrity of the nation’s voting system after allegations that Russia had hacked Democratic Party emails, and concern about the security of older electronic voting machines. While Donald Trump won the election based on the archaic Electoral College vote allocation, he lost the popular vote by more than 2 million ballots. Although Hillary Clinton had not requested a recount, her campaign decided to take part in the effort to "ensure that it is fair to all sides."  Story continues

Passive U.S. Media Moving Quickly to Normalize Trump's Hate Speech and Stream of Nonstop Lies

MP3 Interview with Robert Jensen, professor of journalism at the University of Texas at Austin, author of the forthcoming book, "The End of Patriarchy: Radical Feminism for Men", conducted by Scott Harris

normalization

From the moment Donald Trump launched his presidential candidacy in the Republican party primary, it was clear that the real estate billionaire and reality TV star was not just another ordinary politician. His denunciations of Mexicans, Muslims and raw expressions of misogyny disregarded the standard GOP dog whistle-style bigotry that's been part of the GOP for decades. Instead, Trump’s incendiary hate speech – linked with the scapegoating of minorities – succeeded in galvanizing his support among white men who were eager to identify those to blame for the decline of America’s middle class and their standard of living. Although the right-wing populism with bogus bumper sticker-like policy solutions helped Trump win the GOP nomination and the Electoral College vote, most Americans saw through the scam and voted against him.  Story continues

GOP Senate Leader Blocking Bill to Extend Promised Health Care to Retired Coal Miners

MP3 Interview with Ron Pauley, retired union miner working for congressional passage of the Miners Protection Act, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

coal

A New York Times editorial on Nov. 28 scolded Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky for his refusal to support legislation called the Miners’ Protection Act. In the wake of major shifts in the coal industry and many bankruptcies, coal companies have, in many cases, been released from their obligation to guarantee cradle-to-grave health care for their union employees. Those benefits were won in 1946 through negotiations between then President Harry Truman and the powerful president of the United Mine Workers of America at the time, John L. Lewis.  Story continues
