Gamma Quadrant Update

GAMMA QUADRANT UPDATE….What’s that, you say? Barack Obama is palling around with terrorists? That is so last week. Here’s a more recent tour of the Gamma Quadrant:

One: Bill Ayers really wrote Obama’s book, Dreams From My Father. Two: Obama had an underage, gay affair with a pedophile. Three: It’s entirely possible that Obama was involved with bombing the South African rugby team while he was at Columbia in the 80s. Four: Obama, Bill Ayers, and Jeremiah Wright (via a chain of associations too Rube Goldbergesque to summarize) were engaged in a conspiracy to teach Pan-African “cultural nationalism” to Chicago schoolkids during the 90s. Five: Obama was having an affair with one of his fundraiser babes in 2004 until Michelle found out and banished the woman to a “little Caribbean island.”

There’s no evidence yet that Obama was actually the secret love child of Malcolm X, but I’m sure we’ll find it soon enough if we just keep digging.

Thank you!

We didn't know what to expect when we told you we needed to raise $400,000 before our fiscal year closed on June 30, and we're thrilled to report that our incredible community of readers contributed some $415,000 to help us keep charging as hard as we can during this crazy year.

You just sent an incredible message: that quality journalism doesn't have to answer to advertisers, billionaires, or hedge funds; that newsrooms can eke out an existence thanks primarily to the generosity of its readers. That's so powerful. Especially during what's been called a "media extinction event" when those looking to make a profit from the news pull back, the Mother Jones community steps in.

The months and years ahead won't be easy. Far from it. But there's no one we'd rather face the big challenges with than you, our committed and passionate readers, and our team of fearless reporters who show up every day.
