Brodner’s Person of the Day: John D. Rockefeller

Democrat Cave-In of the Day

Sen. John D. (Jay) Rockefeller IV (W. Va.), in an incredible act of political spinelessness, gave Bush more than he asked for in the new FISA law, making him and the Democrats just as guilty of violating the rights of Americans and the U.S. Constitution. Rocky negotiated a new bill to correct abuses of power in electronic eavesdropping ON AMERICANS by winding up giving into Bush with a bill that MAKES IT WORSE.


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.
