‘All In: The Fight For Democracy’ Examines The History Of Voter Suppression In The United States
“During this period in American history, when the upcoming American election looms large, filmmakers Liz Garbus and Lisa Cortés address the timely and crucial issue of voter suppression in their documentary, All In: The Fight for Democracy, coming to Prime Video, September 18th, 2020. The film tells the story of Stacey Abrams, former minority leader of the Georgia House of Representatives, and includes personal experiences with racism and voter suppression that she and her family faced in her hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. Abrams notably lost the 2018 Georgia Gubernatorial Election to then Secretary of State, Brian Kemp, who, in a conflict of interest, oversaw the election and election data and was subsequently accused of voter suppression. The film includes footage that shows both candidates having difficulties at the polls while attempting to cast their ballots,” by Risa Sarachan, Forbes. Read more
Editor’s note: Undoubtedly, The White House has been prepared for this with President Trump releasing his list our SCOTUS nominees.
Senate leader McConnell announced he will force through a Trump replacement vote, even though McConnell would not allow Obama’s replacement (Garland) to be considered after Judge Scalia’s passing during the 2016 election year.
This is a VERY sad day for America to lose this giant!
The future of the Court will be numerous split decisions IF the President is allowed a replacement appointment before Jan. 20th.
These issues will be under potential assault with a Trump replacement: women rights (Rose v. Wade), Obamacare, LGBTQ and workers rights, and electoral legitimacy, where Trump has said he will challenge the elections results if he loses.
Trump has said he will nominate Cotton or Cruz, so the Court will be solidly conservative, and change the dynamics of most Court decisions.
America should be very concerned the Court will be altered for generations!
Ginsburg dictated this statement to her granddaughter Clara Spera just days before her death: “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”
We should support the Senate to honor her dying wish.
RBG was a legend in the law and American history – a true hero!
Ginsburg was appointed in 1993 by President Bill Clinton and in recent years served as the most senior member of the court’s liberal wing consistently delivering progressive votes on the most divisive social issues of the day, including abortion rights, same-sex marriage, voting rights, immigration, health care and affirmative action.
Along the way, she developed a rock star type status and was dubbed the “Notorious R.B.G.” In speaking events across the country before liberal audiences, she was greeted with standing ovations as she spoke about her view of the law, her famed exercise routine and her often fiery dissents.
“Our Nation has lost a jurist of historic stature,” said Chief Justice John Roberts. “We at the Supreme Court have lost a cherished colleague. Today we mourn, but with confidence that future generations will remember Ruth Bader Ginsburg as we knew her — a tireless and resolute champion of justice. [Click here for the Court’s statement.]
“Ginsburg died surrounded by her family at her home in Washington, D.C., the court said. A private interment service will be held at Arlington National Cemetery.”

“Set in the dark underbelly of Silicon Valley, The Social Dilemma fuses investigative documentary with enlightening narrative drama. Expert testimony from tech whistle-blowers exposes our disturbing predicament: the services Big Tech provides-search engines, networks, instant information, etc.-are merely the candy that lures us to bite. Once we’re hooked and coming back for more, the real commodity they sell is their prowess to influence and manipulate us.Written by Sundance Film Festival,” by Netflix. Read more
“This film is very confusing but also makes perfect sense at the same time. The idea is that we are all fighting against AI every single day through our phones, and it keeps dividing us as a society. It is a perspective I have not come across and I think the execution of the film defining the problem is excellent.”
