3 Great New Election Integrity Music Videos!

3 GREAT New Election Integrity Music Videos!

Jesse Dyens' 'Steal the Election' | Ellen Bukstel & Nancy Wuerzburger's 'They Lost My Vote!' | Emma's Revolution's 'Why Cant They Count Our Votes?'...

By Brad Friedman, The BRAD BLOG

Three --- count 'em (and watch 'em!) --- three great new Election Integrity songs/videos. The first of which, how could I not love, with lyrics that include...

So tell your sister and your uncle and your Mom,
Better get yourself onto BradBlog.com

They're each must-see/must-listen, and they each follow below...Pass 'em on...

First up... Brand new and just out --- and totally frickin' rockin' --- is from Jesse Dyen, songwriter of perhaps my favorite Anti-War, Anti-Bush tune, "Sons & Daughters". In addition to the lyric mentioned above, Jesse's new tune "Steal the Election" also includes (among many great ones) these lyrics:

While voter fraud is a big fat myth,
It's sure to push the ACORN off the cliff

and

So ask your brother and your grandma in St. Louis
"How come nobody ever heard of Clint Curtis?"

Please watch it! And pass it on! (audio here,video link here)...

Next up...One of my favorite classic Election Integrity songs (and I've got a few of them), "They Lost My Vote!", as performed by Ellen Bukstel, is now a great music video! And not a moment too soon. Thanks, by the way, to Ellen for being on this one so early! Like years ago when few others were paying attention! Enjoy...


Finally...One more...Courtesy of "Emma's Revolution" out of Charlottesville, VA (where, you can bet, they will be having trouble "counting" votes this year!), asking "'Why Can't They Count Our Votes?"...


(Hat-tip on that one to David Swanson!)

Binoy Kampmark: Predictable Monstrosities: Priti Patel Approves Assange’s Extradition
The only shock about the UK Home Secretary’s decision regarding Julian Assange was that it did not come sooner. In April, Chief Magistrate Senior District Judge Paul Goldspring expressed the view that he was “duty-bound” to send the case to Priti Patel to decide on whether to extradite the WikiLeaks founder to the United States to face 18 charges, 17 grafted from the US Espionage Act of 1917...

Digitl: Are we happy living in Handy's Age of Unreason?
In 1989 Charles Handy wrote The Age of Unreason. It's a book that looked forward to a time where telecommuting would be an everyday reality. We live in that world today, although we use the term working from home. The book contains other predictions that were on the money... More>>


Reactionary Succession: Peter Dutton, Australia’s New Opposition Leader
The devastation wrought on Australia’s Coalition government on May 21 by the electorate had a stunning, cleansing effect. Previously inconceivable scenarios were played out in safe, Liberal-held seats that had, for decades, seen few, if any challenges, from an alternative political force. But the survival of one figure would have proved troubling, not only to the new Labor government, but to many Liberal colleagues lamenting the ruins. The pugilists and head knockers, however, would have felt some relief. Amidst the bloodletting, hope... More>>

Binoy Kampmark: Leaking For Roe V Wade
The US Supreme Court Chief Justice was furious. For the first time in history, the raw judicial process of one of the most powerful, and opaque arms of government, had been exposed via media – at least in preliminary form. It resembled, in no negligible way, the publication by WikiLeaks of various drafts of the Trans-Pacific Partnership... More>>




The Conversation: Cheaper food comes with other costs – why cutting GST isn't the answer

As New Zealand considers the removal of the goods and services tax (GST) from food to reduce costs for low income households, advocates need to consider the impact cheap food has on the environment and whether there are better options to help struggling families... More>>
