We're closing in on the goal on our quarterly fundraiser. We need your support to put us over the top so we can get back to the job of giving you the best foreign policy coverage on the Internet – and making the case for peace.

And with matching funds – your tax-deductible donation has double the impact.

The "mainstream" media is the War Party's megaphone, the voice of the elites and their agenda of global intervention. It's left to us, the "alternative" media, to be the people's voice – but we can't do it without your help.

Please make your tax-deductible donation today!
