Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is now blogging on his personal website, where you can take part in a poll on whether the US is trying to start a world war. (Click on the flag in the upper-right corner for the English version.) His first– and only– entry last week was a 2,000-word autobiography, so it’s probably a bit premature to call it a blog. Right-wing bloggers in the U.S. are worried that the site is just a way to install viruses on U.S. and Israeli computers.

Though Ahmadinejad’s site traffic is reportedly good, to date he’s only received one comment: A request for bigger font sizes.

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily bluster—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
