Educate, Organize and Mobilize: Last week we shifted our focus to voter mobilization for November 2014. This week, as we look back we’ll also take a look at the current state of affairs in the fight to protect the voting rights of all US Citizens. As we discuss current court activities concerning voting rights, please remember that nothing that the courts decide between now and November will replace the need for a massive voter turnout and that such a turnout will only happen if we, the people accept the responsibility for making it happen. I’ll also update my outreach efforts to get Black Republicans to respond to voter suppression and my suggestions for our communities to get involved in protecting our voting rights.

The standoff between federal agents and armed supporters of a Nevada rancher earlier this year was a highly coordinated effort by far-right militiamen that has since energized volatile extremists who are increasingly targeting law enforcement officers, according to a new SPLC report released today. The report – War in the West – contains new details about the April standoff between the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and militiamen sympathetic to rancher Cliven Bundy, which was seen as a victory within theantigovernment “Patriot” movement after federal agents pulled out despite Bundy owing more than $1 million in grazing fees and fines to the federal government.
