C4 News: Revealed: Trump campaign strategy to deter millions of Black Americans from voting in 2016

30/09/2020

September 28, 2020

Trump’s election campaign wanted to deter millions of Black Americans from voting in 2016. The ‘Deterrence’ project can be revealed after Channel 4 News obtained the database used by Trump’s digital campaign team. Millions of Americans in key battleground states were separated into eight categories, so they could be targeted with tailored ads online. One of the categories was named ‘Deterrence’, which was later described publicly by Trump’s chief data scientist as containing people the campaign “hope don’t show up to vote”. Analysis by Channel 4 News shows Black Americans – historically a community targeted with voter suppression tactics – were disproportionately marked ‘Deterrence’ by the 2016 campaign. In total, 3.5 million Black Americans were marked ‘Deterrence’. Overall, people of colour labelled as Black, Hispanic, Asian and ‘Other’ groups made up 54% of the ‘Deterrence’ category. Meanwhile, categories of voters the campaign wished to attract were overwhelmingly white. The investigation reveals the Trump campaign targeted Black Americans with negative ads on Facebook and social media – despite the campaign’s denials.

Nat’s SFO announcement happy coincidence

30/09/2020

National is promising to do more to stamp out corruption:

A National Government will back the Serious Fraud Office to do more to stamp out corruption, National Party Leader Judith Collins says.

“New Zealand’s most successful crime fighting agency will get the resources it needs to deliver on its stated role as the ‘lead law enforcement agency for investigating and prosecuting serious financial crime, including bribery and corruption.’

“National will double the Serious Fraud Office’s budget, from its present total budget for the 2020/21 financial year of $12.7 million to $25 million a year.”

Ms Collins says it doesn’t make sense for the lead agency battling fraud, bribery and corruption, with the greatest legal powers to uncover those things, to be playing second fiddle to other government agencies working in this area.

“The SFO will continue to work alongside the likes of the NZ Police’s Financial Intelligence Unit, but…

You’re Moving Out Today – A Meidas Touch & Bette Midler Production

30/09/2020

We were honored to learn that Bette was a big fan of MeidasTouch and it goes without saying we have all been long admirers of her legendary career and her political advocacy and fighting for equality and civil rights. The original song in the video ‘Move Out Trump’ was written by Bette Midler along with the prolific and talented singer and songwriters Carole Bayer Sager and Bruce Roberts.

The MeidasTouch video highlights the many ways Trump is intolerable, un-American, and the most dangerous threat facing the country.

The lighthearted approach of the music video and song, while discussing the sobering reality of Donald’s failed leadership, seeks to break through the noise of the yelling and screaming in political discourse and focus our attention on the undeniable realities.

Trump is a deadly parody of leader in a Banana Republic let loose like a bull in a china shop to run roughshod on our democracy. The song and music video seeks to capture that essence in a manner that is more easily digestible (though still potentially puke inducing).

Sung by Carole Bayer Sager Written by Bette Midler, Carole Bayer Sager and Bruce Roberts Executive Produced by MeidasTouch
