OpEdNews has, for a long time, existed week to week, month to month, in terms of paying bills. We don't have a back-up. So we need a continuous flow of donations.

Now, this last day of the month, we have a bill due today that we don't have the money to cover. I used my credit card to help pay the last bill and that is not sustainable. We need your support-- in the form of purchases of premium memberships and donations. This is very urgent.

if you've never purchased a premium membership, please consider it, especially a lifetime membership.

We are almost there. We particularly need preimum membership purchases TODAY, though donations are also essential.

Please help,

Glad to donate $100. I hope the new book by changes the picture. I am really looking forward to reading and to sharing the ten autographed and inscribed copies with the serious people in my sphere of existence.


You do an excellent job under difficult and trying circumstances, and certainly compared to Daily Kos asking for donations every single day, I encourage readers to contribute as much as you can.

I've got a Premium Membership and donate $10 a month. Not bragging, just hoping to set an example. Seriuosly, picture life without OEN and consider Rob's request. As the shades of fascism come down, has anyone got something more urgent? Even a few bucks a month, multiplied by a thousand, can't be too hard. Many hands make light work.

Billy, couldn't find how to "upgrade" so I just added six months to my "leaders" membership.

Good responses.

I paid enough a year ago to become a Life Member. I value this site, so I felt I should become a Life Member.

People who are not a paying member should pay. In my view, this site is valuable and should be supported especially financially.

Thanks for good and supportive people on this site. Salute.

I donated $50 last month and am donating $50 more today. Those of us who take issue with the mainstream media's fake news have an obligation to keep OEN alive.

I would like to add that Oen is a cooperative. It belongs to all of us in a sense. So those of us who turn to this site for a reality check need to participate in its upkeep.

I have made four or five large donations previously. I will put another check in the mail today.

OEN's crisis is an identity crisis. There are some very knowledgeable people like David Pear, or Daniel Geary, who are clear about our current reality. Too many of your contributors are just Democratic party dupes or worse. I am anti war and anti Democratic party with only rare exceptions like Tulsi Gabbard. OEN lacks focus. I see articles that are just plan factually wrong passing themselves off as doing politics right. I have zero tolerance for Russophobia. Because I have read way more history and visited and talked with real Russians, unlike some of the fools that get space here. Better sites deserve my donations. And I don't see a way out because of the hold that the mediocre uninformed writers and commenters have. No to Daily Kos, Robert Reich and others not to be named.
