Hey DREAMers! Donald Trump has your back:

As always, keep in mind that this is a message to Trump’s base, not to anyone else. The message is: I’m anti-immigrant but I still have a heart. This is precisely the message they want to hear, because it is precisely how they think of themselves. They’re sick of people accusing them of being racist or xenophobic or just plain nasty because they’re opposed to the brown hordes coming over the border. Trump is the only one who understands this, and that’s why they love him.

LESS DREADING, MORE DOING

This is the rubber-meets-road moment: the early days in our first fundraising drive since we took a big swing and merged with CIR to bring fearless investigative reporting to the internet, radio, video, and everywhere else that people need an antidote to lies and propaganda.

Donations have started slow, and we hope that explaining, level-headedly, why your support really is everything for our reporting will make a difference. Learn more in “Less Dreading, More Doing,” or in this 2:28 video about our merger (that literally just won an award), and please pitch in if you can right now.
