“From the Flintstones to the Jetsons, you get an idea of how Americans always thought it would work. George Jetson went to a job not all that different from Fred Flintstone’s. But we’ve taken a detour and ended up with the Simpsons.”


It's been a tough several weeks for those who care about the truth: Congress, the FBI, and the judiciary are seemingly more concerned with providing cover for a foregone conclusion than with uncovering facts.

But we also saw something incredibly powerful: that truth-tellers don't quit, and that speaking up is contagious. I hope you'll read why, even now, we believe the truth will prevail—and why we aren't giving up on our goal of raising $30,000 in new monthly donations this fall, even though there's a long way to go to get there. Please help close the gap with a tax-deductible donation today.
