Deadline Extensions

Ah, so it looks like the deadline for the Iraqi constitution will be pushed back an extra seven days. No idea why disagreements that were intractable today will somehow become tractable a week from now, but one can always hope—it’s what everyone’s been doing for the past two years, after all. On the plus side, this debt story in the Financial Times seems like positive news.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
