Conspiracy Watch: The Best Law Ever


the conspiracy: In 2000, Congress secretly passed the National Economic Security and Reformation Act (nesara). But George W. Bush and a cabal of Supreme Court justices and other dark figures have blocked its implementation. No wonder—the law requires the president and vice president to resign; would bring troops on foreign soil home; and best of all, would end the federal income tax and zero out all personal debt. Some nesara believers think it will also hasten the Second Coming.

the conspiracy theorist: Shaini Goodwin, a.k.a. “The Dove of Oneness,” a Washington woman who hits up supporters for help to fund the law’s implementation. She recently promised to turn a $5 million investment into $150 million in eight weeks.

meanwhile, back on earth: A monetary reform plan called nesara was drafted by a business consultant in the late ’80s, but no one on Capitol Hill has ever touched it.

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
