'Rigged' Author Mollie Hemingway Describes Changes to Election Law

"Again, the book is called rigged, I want to make sure I keep on plugging it how the media big tech and Democrats seized our elections. And so I want to get into kind of the mail in ballot piece of this. You wrote this piece for newsweek. Recently, and I think it's actually an essay from your book if I'm not mistaken, right? I think so yeah. Yeah, you wrote here about how the change in the election laws themselves had a profound difference in actually the outcome. And so talk a little bit about this because here's one of my complaints about how people talk about the election, which you've done a phenomenal job of doing the opposite, which is, people get so focused on a certain thing like machines or routers. This is comprehensive that there was so many different elements of this that all kind of worked in harmony together. Please talk about the mail in ballot, aspect of this. Well, and I dove in in Wisconsin for mail in ballots because I find that state to be so fascinating. Wisconsin's constitution says that everyone has the right to vote. They also have the right not to vote and that mail in or absentee balloting, I think is how they put it is a privilege. So there are different standards by which they judge in person, election day voting and absentee mail in balloting. And first off, before COVID or anything else, Wisconsin has a problem where they're not keeping their list as clean as they should. So people move all the time like a huge percentage of the population is constantly moving. You might have had yourself like 18 different addresses and you register to vote at one, and then you move to the next, but you're still on the old list. And so states are supposed to clean up their lists with some regularity. And Wisconsin had a quarter of a million voter registrations that they were supposed to remove from their list, but they didn't, they actually lost a court battle about whether to do it or not, but they still didn't. And then into this mix is COVID and the clerks of the two most democratic counties in the state say, we have this special provision in Wisconsin where you can register to vote without showing an ID. So usually you have to show an ID, but if you say you're indefinitely confined, then you don't have to show an ID. So they tell people to do it because of COVID. And I think they get another quarter of a million people registering to vote without requiring them without a requirement for showing ID. Some of them may have shown ID, but they're not

'Rigged' Author Mollie Hemingway: What Happened During the 2020 Election Must Be Discussed

"Show with us today is a legend. Someone who has made America a better place and you can't say that about many people. Molly, Hemingway, author of rigged. How the media big tech and Democrats have seized. Our elections, and it's out right now. Is that right Molly? Yeah. Just just came out and it's doing great. So. Good. Well, everyone go buy a copy, it is a number one bestseller in media Internet and in politics, lot I want to get into, but Molly, you are now bucking the consensus. You're not allowed to say the election was rigged because you're a threat to democracy. How dare you? That's actually partly why I wrote the book. I was very frustrated by the idiotic way that people were talking about the election. You weren't allowed to ask any questions and even before the election, I had felt that the media and tech environments were so corrupted and so brazen in their limiting of information that they were meddling with our election. And that's actually something that international observers will say that an election can't be deemed to be free or fair if you're in a propaganda or censorship environment. And that's what we're in. I mean, we have big tech controlling so much of what we're allowed to talk about, what we're allowed to share, what we're allowed to think. And I thought that was a really important part of the story. That's where I was mostly interested. But then, of course, people were also talking about all these changes to election law and how those changes had degraded the integrity of the election. And the fact that nobody else wanted to look into that, I thought, well, I have to research this. I have to report this. And I was frankly shocked and stunned by what I found. And so I'm really glad that I did write

How Democrats Rigged a Presidential Election with Mollie Hemingway

"But kind of walk through some of the things that you found in researching this because this is one of the most under research topics in the history of news. You have the entire news media just not just uninterested, but they're invested in making sure you don't talk about it. Exactly right. So one of the things that I think is very interesting is that the same democratic operative who ran the Russia lie. That was the lie that Donald Trump stole the 2016 election by colluding with Russia. His name is Mark Elias. He was at Perkins cooey which is this big democratic firm. He recently left to start his own firm at more money and have more power and control. And he was the one that funneled the secretive Russia lie. That was where Hillary Clinton paid for opposition research. It was just inventions, lies, that Donald Trump was planning to steal the 2016 election and that he did steal the 2016 election. They actually have kept it going, this entire time. His name is Marc Elias. He's also the guy who ran the democratic operation to change all voting laws leading up to the 2020 election. And that meant different things in different states. So that could be about watering down the integrity of mail in balloting, that could be expanding the period of time in which you vote so that you're not really sure how many people voted or when they have to get their ballots in by. And he has this array of different groups that he works with, whether they're democratic operatives or nonprofit nonpartisan groups that are actually just kind of arms of the Democratic Party, who would have them file lawsuits. And so it was just this wide ranging operation to weaken the integrity of the election system. And because of COVID, you know, this is something that he had been wanting to do for decades, but because of COVID, suddenly all these judges or other people were more amenable

What Brazil's New Social Media Rules Mean for the Internet

"President. Jaya bolsonaro signed a decree on monday that temporarily bands social media platforms from removing many types of content including misinformation about cova nineteen and the country's upcoming presidential election brazil's new rules appear to be the first in the world to make certain types of content take downs illegal under national law even as other national governments around the world implement rules that force social media companies to take down more types of content proactively. What do the rule say the decree targets. What bolsonaro presidential press office called arbitrary removal of content including accounts profiles and posts under the new rules. Tech companies must only remove posts if they fall under a narrow set of definitions including terrorism threats of violence sexual crimes and cyber attacks and less. They obtain a court order. The measures would prevent social media companies from easily removing content including medical and political misinformation. Bolsonaro has repeatedly posted misinformation about covert nineteen and has claimed. That voter fraud would be the only explanation if he loses the upcoming october. Twenty twenty two presidential election. Something pollsters say is likely facebook. Twitter and youtube have all previously removed kovic misinformation shared by bolsonaro. The rules are bad news for brazil. Havi air palero. The argentina based policy director for the digital rights group access now told time adding that the decree ties the hands of internet platforms to deal with hate speech disinformation campaigns and coordinated harassment. We need democratic rules to make content moderation and platforms more transparent fair and accountable palero said but these attempts from illiberal politicians are far from that and aim only at giving a free pass to anti democratic speech.

"presidential election" Discussed on PRI's The World

"Here in other words you they heard and that is what people like yana. Najuma hope to do on saturday. Your points on each other because we know were all that we have in this moment in time that we shared together. She says we will come as strangers but we will leave as family for the world. I'm rebecca cancer in shanghai in north korea. The ruling party has been meeting this week. According to state media leader. Kim jong un says countries prepare for both dialogue and confrontation with the united states. The statement comes days after the. Us and other group of seven nations called on north korea to abandon its nuclear weapons program. Our next guest has been following this closely. John everard is a former ambassador from the uk to north korea ambassador dialogue and confrontation. Those were kim jong un's words it's kind of like prepare for night and day. How do you interpret that. They've been saying this or something very similar for quite a long time now. Keeping both doors open stressing that they're open to dialogue but they're prepared to stand up for themselves if they feel that they're on and entity is being infringed in their favorite phrase all if they feel the. us is bullying them so the formulation was not a tremendous surprise. There's been other news out of the ruling party conference as well. Kim jong made reference to the fact that there have been food shortages in north korea. Admitting that seems big for him what are you reading into that close. You have to look at kim jong un's remarks on this alongside the latest report on the food situation in north korea from the food and agriculture organization the united nations which came out just a few days ago in the fourteenth of june. And there's quite a difference. The united nations is saying that yes. North korea is sort of food with north korea. Usually is sort of food and this year doesn't look very much worse than previous years but the north korean regime is clearly very worried about the food situation either kim's on and his advisors knew something that the united nations don't know to make them believe the food situation is actually a great deal worse or he is worried about the gap between what is going on on the ground in north korea and his own rhetoric. This goes back to the singapore summit. We all focused on. What president trump and Chairman kim said to each other but the real message the north korean people was what he showed. Singapore uncensored pictures of modern glistening city state lights on bright skyscrapers and this went out. Primetime north korean television champion. Kim was leading the north korean. People that things will get better is getting them a vision of the future. Three years on he hasn't delivered on any of those imply promises. Indeed life has got quite a lot harder for orrin north. Koreans and i think the politically akins on on is starting to feel the heat. Well that's interesting because there has been speculation about kim jong himself. There were these photos that were released recently. That showed him looking noticeably thinner than before there was also a document leaked a few weeks ago saying he may have a new second in command. So what's going on with kim jong un. I have to say that. The evidence that i've seen for real serious health problems is being rather scant. I am left wondering whether the move that we saw in the party. Congress in january where as you rightly say the congress created the position of a second in command in the party whether they are designed to reflect not physical weakness but political weakness. Whether kim jong un is actually things slowly pushed to the sidelines in the actual implementation of power in north korea. It may be that. The shock of failed annoy summit and remember that americans present in the room. They're the said. When president trump walked out and kim went white. This is the shock of his political life that the failure of that policy has damaged him to the extent. That bigwigs in the party are moving to a system where life can work without chairman. Kim have signed all the papers. If so that will be a tremendous step if you were advising president biden. miss sorta. How would you tell them to proceed through what appears to be some early signs of some kind of pivot. I would suggest the renews efforts to establish a channel dialogue with north korea. Now this is a frustrating job. The administration thing to do this ever since it came to office and has got very little response. Maybe a message of some kind to ten kim. Just telling him that president biden. I've heard what you say dollar confrontation. Let's do dialogue and see what he says john. Everard is a former british diplomat. Who was uk ambassador to north korea from two thousand six to two thousand eight ambassador. Thank you very much for your thoughts. You'll very welcome.

Men's group a kind of barbershop group for networking and mentoring. But they haven't met in person for over a year now he says china recovers from cova nineteen. The time is ripe for a return to in person gatherings chino's to come together and celebrate our heritage. Even though many of us are not able to return home some people haven't seen their loved ones for over a year. And i really think people are looking for that sense of community. He and the other organizers thought juneteenth celebration might be a way to grow the black business network here black owned businesses will be at the event selling their products and services. There's an entrepreneurship by example and of recycling black dollars. If you will through commerce fellow organizer william frazier. I came to shanghai twenty years ago.

There's no relative there's no vice-president in campaign nothing straight. Call experts experts. Yeah people who who are knowledgeable in that field to guide the president in order for the president to guide the nation unfamiliar to us. Expect the president to be an expert in everything. I mean if the president's an expert in one thing in economics early govan military tactics. That's one thing but she'd have a doctor a medical doctor as president review years away from that. Hopefully it happens. But that's why presidents have cabinets outside. Presidents have response teams so those people can advise the president on how to act. It's not science In this makes sense doesn't make sense. I mean the bar is set low for trump. But i at least expected him to have to listen to some doctors now. His vice president has no he.

"Maybe maybe there is. There were just more trump supporters. That didn't want to give their answer to the polls. I don't know maybe the pollsters Job either way. I might entrust them so either theory. Not not well-founded at all in not scientifically proven not enough. This came up with it on election night. And i'm sharing with you guys. I think i think holes might just not correctly read. Trump's candidacies i think i think it his supporters vaca- mail silent majority of buying large the previously like not too politically active even voice. I think they like this idea of heavy. Their candidate trump being underdog. They might not want to share that. They're voting for trump that they plan to vote for trump or even share. Like eating with a pollster. I think they liked the idea of a comeback story which is still bizarre because trump has never been an underdog until he entered. Politics is east. It looks life. Silver spoon is that or or. I've leave nate. Silver from five. Thirty eight came up with this term. The shy from supporter. Someone who similar to my theory is not out front and not open. voting for trump. But more so because they're barest devote embarrassed be public about it he makes it makes sense. I believe it. I make sense to me. Maybe it's by theory is agree Hundred san with what you said but also add the fact that maybe some trump supporters don't want to publicly say or poll with that run for trump. Because they're afraid of getting attacked and he said you decide shyness but maybe they're they're not shy is one of the public. Backlash i dunno. It's it's instant blanket term. I think i don't know i don't i. Don't talk to make silver from by me. I wish maybe we can treat a him one of these days. We'll work on that win. I want to go back to the underdog claiming mate. How you think how you these his supporters probably bo fram digging in a good outlet linear. Let me. Let me her back bay. They like they might like this idea of their candidate. Being an underdog.

"Position. Trump wasn't agree president but he the country was doing trinity. Okay for three years under his regime when shit hit the fan earlier in two thousand twenty earlier this year. He didn't change his game. You know the difficult through difficulty increased in he just kept ongoing f flat level So i mean that's not really is campaign but it's tough to talk about the things that you did good from a year or two years or three years ago recently. You're not doing your recently. The country's in shambles so that that's my cheek he he. He didn't realize where he was needed. Realize this position. I think you're on hundred seventy with you to think it's more it's also like he just like you say he's using the same thing when he really needed to show that he could govern actually steers through an adverse time. He kinda failed to do so and he will remember that in. I really thought i really thought that. Once he got covid his attitude would change probably late into leap for to make a big difference no knowing he kept on talking about health not that bad he he said he got it so when he recovered record time so he was fine. Anyone can get it. Is he talked an earlier episode. You know he had like he had probably the world's best doctors operated on him like he's the president united states did not gonna let him dr kofi. So so i mean i. I thought it was very lacklustre. Reelection bid on but you know. Now they're putting so much effort for recounts into challenge the vote and stuff. I think it's baseless crash in touch on a little bit later in this episode. One more thing for i will say kaelin brought up the sleepy joe thing before the debates. I didn't personally believe by one hundred percent there however he proved me wrong. A lot of people wrong when he was able to competently competently debate trump. I think that was a big reason why he divorced. He reinforces legitimacy. I guess and the greg's point about trump i guess cruising through his first three years because nothing crazy happened.

"And a lot of different hypotheticals but you know had to remember that mail in ballots. Were counted later Then voted votes in person. And yet you know it worked out for a three of us. Who predicted in also won. A joe biden win. Why did why did biden win in. What did trump lose josh. If we're speaking literally. I i said it was gonna come down to three states at did miss michigan pennsylvania wisconsin by one by tennis of margins this year and in two thousand sixteen trump won by the margins and clearly the voters in that state in those states decided the election trump clearly bungled covid He governed for half the country most of his term. He didn't look to be present for all during his entire presidential campaign. In twenty twenty. I didn't hear many policy provisions. I just heard him touting how great he had done in. I don't know what his plans were for his next term. He cast doubt over the sanctity of the election process leaving contracted code himself although things led to him losing some linzie votes in the polls and trump still received the second most second highest amount of votes in the presidential elections unfortunately for him by the first the highest amount of votes But if you dig a little deeper. I think trump's ability to connect with issues. That young people really care about such as covid. Police say race relations. It caused him to lose a lot of the voters he wanted. Twenty sixteen and it was part of the reason he lost. The blue wall states virus a razor thin margin late as as to why he lost the blue wall states or anything they one trump loss. All right well. I think okay well as long as trump lost honestly mainly because of his rhetoric he. Let's think about what he did to twenty sixteen. He took what barely works like. You said he won by raising martins in a lot of states and somehow he's still keep that in mind to for years ago and he took this four divisive rhetoric..

"Affected by electoral wage. The only the presidential campaign that is affected by electors. That is where we use it solely and it's solely for the purpose of representing or electing rather than the president and the vice president of the United States because they are the most powerful people in our country. Are you still in the lecture or they knew every election? I am not to lecture only or presidential election which occurs every four years and so every four years we would get new electors in the Electoral College, but during the time that I was just in the Electoral College, I was the Secretary of the of the elector. So if you go to the Secretary of State's office, you'll see that I signed the document showing what our vote was dead and how we proceed it, but at the after I completed signing those documents and they were file with the Secretary of State's office and sent to the vice president of the United States who serves as wage, Resident of the Senate that vote was red in the Senate.

"The electors get to know your electoral college is spicy tea and Shihan from Schoolhouse Rocks the vote right here on The Children's Hour. We're talking with an elective or dr. Pamela Herndon was an elector for the state of New Mexico in a previous presidential election. And one question we have is can anyone be an elector doctor Herndon? Generally the elector is come from the State Central Committee. It could also be a member a high-ranking political officer could like the governor for example are the lieutenant governor is that if they chose to be an elector, but generally they leave it to the policymakers who set out the the rules and and the policies that will be governing with a different a particular rather political party. So the State Central Committee is elected in the state of New Mexico, and they are elected by precincts and by Ward's to represent a particular area where they live and it's just like the United States where we have House of Representative members representing each person in a state. Well in the state of New Mexico, we have State Central Committee members representing the entire estate coming together to determine either the procedures and policies that are particular political party will use can collector go Rogue can it like just discard the popular vote and just do whatever it takes to do. Well, I want you to know because that that have been some electors who have tried to go Rogue and they've tried to cast their ballots for for somebody different than what the people in the state that age where they live have cast their ballots. So that matters been already has also been taken to the Supreme Court and they cannot do that and then Most states and in some states for example if a game Elector tries to catch the ballot different than what the people of the state have directed them to cast then they could be actually put in jail for purposes of mass following the rules as they should have been what does Rogue mean Rogue means? They're not following the the process or that they should be following. They're not going down the path that they're supposed to follow I'd say for example, if we took boys and girls in the state of New Mexico and and girls were one party and boys were one party and the girls won the race, but the Boise office where the where the electors and they said well we're going to vote for boys. We not going to vote for the girls, but that would not work because the girls had the majority of the votes. So the boys have to vote for the girls go and Rogue would mean that you would you would vote in a different way than what the majority had voted and that's not what electors are supposed to do. They're supposed to cast their ballots the same way that wage. Majority of the people in the state have cast their ballots. I've been studying the Electoral College and so far. It's also pretty simple that everyone's saying it's really confusing. So what's the confusing part? So the confusing part is that when you look at the number of votes that are cast across the United States, sometimes they don't necessarily coincide with the way the Electoral College ends up selecting the President and Vice President and they've been two examples to record during the past then two of the past presidential elections one involved George Bush Junior. And so when he ran for office, he did not win the popular vote and when Donald Trump ran for office, he did not win the popular vote when George Bush ran that was a five hundred thousand a difference in the in the boat dead. When Donald Trump one that was over three million differences in the vote that he received and and looking at what people had cast so often the people were saying then why are we utilizing this electoral college because the people really haven't spoken when the majority of the people had voted for somebody else but the electoral college has had determined that a different person other than the majority had voted. So there seems to be a very very different process that really is confusing because in the various States, they you must vote for the person with the popular vote. But then if you look at it on a bigger scale the country is not voting for the person that the country will want it so that is what it's very very confusing about the electoral college today. I'm just going to ask my crew. What do you think about that? Does that seem fair? I feel like that's unfair the only girl We can change this Corvette is through changing our constitution because the right now the Electoral College is constitutionally mandated and it would require two-thirds of the vote of the house and the Senate to change that rule to make it go out to a vote of the states and then three-quarters of the states would have to vote to change the rule. So those are kinds of things that we really need to think about. How do we work on them to make things very fair so that when a group of people vote they all vote for something that they want that their bosses are really hurt because that's the basis for which I our country is built upon if this is all true, how did the Electoral College coming about the early writers of our constitution thought that they were really creating a process that was going to be fair for everybody who is in the country so they're dead. More people in the eastern part of the of the country along the New York Corridor for example than there were in the southern part of the country like in Texas or in New Mexico for that matter. So, they thought if they gave people electoral votes that I would somehow balance out so that those votes that are cast in areas where they are fewer people would not be diminished in any way because there are larger groups of people who might be voting in other parts of the country, but what has happened is looking for one thing that really has not worked out well and that has shown itself in the in at least two elections that have occurred so far. Do you think the Electoral College would have worked better when it was first created do I think when it was first created it probably worked a little better. But even that is hard to see because if you look at what the Electoral College does it gives us the same number of votes as we have representatives in the in Congress. So that way you look at New Mexico. We only have five electoral votes because those are the members of members that we have in Congress. And if you look at a place like California, for example, which is the largest of the states with the most members in the in Congress you wonder you said how did that really make things more equal because all you've done now is to Pare down those numbers that you really haven't brought about equality in terms of the Voting. Is it only the presidential campaign that's.

"That was the deedle deedle Dee Dee's with vote with my mom released in 2018. And before the break you heard Miss Katie sings with a birth. A new release called let's vote. Well, you are tuned to The Children's Hour and I'm Katie Stone here with the kids on zoom and with New Mexico Secretary of State near Maggie Toulouse Oliver. We have a lot more questions about the election and voting. What is the youngest age? You can be able to vote. The federal law says you have to be eighteen years old to vote. However, there have been some movements around the country to allow folks as young as sixteen to be able to vote in. Let's say School elections because students are being impacted directly on a daily basis by the decisions of the school board who makes all the decisions about how your schools are going to run. So it's entirely possible in the future we could see that voting age lowered down to 16 or who knows maybe even lower. Can you choose not to vote, you know in the United States you can wage That choice that is your right as a citizen as to whether you want to vote or not. And did you know Octavia? There are some countries where you actually have to you're required by law to vote. And if you don't you actually have to pay money to the government for not voting and some people think we should do that here because some people don't think there are enough people that actually come out and vote even though we had this really amazing right to have our voices heard that here in the United States. It is our choice not to vote if we choose not to in the state of New Mexico. We vote paper ballots. We use a pen and actually fill in a piece of paper a little circles like kids will do at school when you have standardized tests, right but need a lot of places in the country. They use electronic voting machines, which kind of looked like a screen like an iPad and you touch them and vote that way. I feel like our paper bag. It's a really safe and secure and a great way to vote. But I also have a couple of questions for you. Like how do you count so many paper ballots so quickly and often are they all the same voting paper ballots or voting with electronic voting machines. So it's a combination right? We do of course use the paper ballot and to your point Katie we use that thought that if there is ever I mean how many times have you guys tried to start your iPad or start your computer? And it doesn't start up. Yeah, right. Something went wrong. How many times have you had to turn it off and turn it back on again? And then sometimes have you guys ever like worked hard on something on your computer, like maybe tried to write a book report or something and something happened with the computer and the document didn't save and you had to do your work all over again has that ever happened to you so many time lot. So that's the thing with computers. That's why we have the paper ballot if anything ever happened to that machine that's counting your bowel. We still want to be able to know how you voted at the end of the day, right? We want to be able to go back and say this is how Melissa or Maya or Isaac voted. So we're able to do that with the paper ballot. But we use the machines to count those votes a lot faster than a human can and they can count sometimes up to a thousand ballots a minute as we're feeding them through the machine to be counted. That's how we can count them so fast, but if it ever got messed up we have that paper ballot that we can go back to and make sure that we count your vote correctly secretary to loose Oliver. How do you decide who goes first on the ballot and the Order of the candidates? First of all, depending on the office of the federal or the national government offices are going to be first to like president is going to always be at the top of the list then the United States Senator. Then you asked Congress then any state-level offices than in county level or local level offices wage. But here's how we decide the order we take the alphabet and we put all of the letters of the alphabet into a random hop or kind of like if you guys were doing Bingo, right? And you saw maybe have you guys ever watch those bingo machines where the pieces bounced around I'm describing This and like a story like kind of way cuz we actually do it by computer and it's really boring. But imagine if you will that someone were to reach out and pick out a letter off the first letter of the alphabet this year that we picked out was the letter c so everybody with a letter C starting last name got to go first on the ballot then we picked out a second thoughts and I can't remember what the letter is but let's say for the sake of argument that it was a p then everybody with a letter P got to go second until we went all the way through the alphabet. So we picked it totally random so that everybody had an equal chance of going first or last or what-have-you. That's how we pick that secretary. We're hearing in the news that we should all expect that the results. The election will not be available the night of the election. But do you think we're going to have the results by say Thanksgiving? Of course, we're going to New Jersey by Thanksgiving the outcome of the election, you know people like me all over the country that are in charge of elections are working so hard already and we're going to keep working so hard to make sure that every single vote gets counted and gets counted accurately so that we know the outcome. We know how important it is for the public for all of your parents and all of you guys to know who's coming next who's going to be our next series of leaders in this country and we want to know that too. So we are going to make sure that that happens. Is there a way where teens like me can go out and work at the Palm. Yes. I'm so glad you asked Melissa, and I don't know exactly how old you are. But if you're sixteen or Seventeen years old, you can work at the polls in New Mexico and in fact our County Club. Works love having younger people work the polls along with the other poll workers because a lot of times there's like heavy equipment to set up or like, you know, they don't really feel comfortable with computers a great and of course our younger people are so good at that sort of thing. And so if you're interested, you can call your county clerk or go online to your county clerk's office and sign up to be a poll worker. They would love to have or sixteen and seventeen year olds working at the polls and at Children's Hour. Org for this shows episode page on elections. We have posted a link that has all the data state-by-state for poll worker rules, including the minimum age and there are many states where teenagers can jump on Thursday and and become poll workers. Even if you're not old enough yet to vote. We've been with New Mexico Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver. Thank you so much for birth. With us on The Children's Hour. Oh, it's been a pleasure.
