Thanks for Keeping Us Independent

I’ve been remiss.

I had plans to send out a thank you note to all the people who donated during our fundraiser. But then a family issue came up and I haven’t gotten it done yet.

Nevertheless, this piece of news made me realize I need to issue a heartfelt thank you immediately.

I am very excited to announce that tomorrow, we are launching a project with our friends at the New Republic to bring Lawfare content and writers to the New Republic‘s web site. Astute readers may have noticed that we have been sharing a certain amount of content with the New Republic over the past few weeks. The partnership aims to build on this relationship, situating Lawfare‘s expertise in national security legal issues within the New Republic‘s broader policy focus.

We are calling the project, which is being sponsored by the Northrup Grumman Corp., “Security States.” [my emphasis]

Some national security commentary gets sponsored by a drone manufacturers and spy companies (the announcement also led me to realize that Brookings itself gets $1 to $2.5 million a year from Booz h/t Katherine Hawkins).

Ours gets sponsored by you.

To all of you who help keep us independent, you have my profuse gratitude.

emptywheel @mmasnick I was actually hoping certain "call" providers would have done that before passage of USAF. They didn't.

emptywheel @radicalmandy Cmon, you have to make it easy for complete strangers to impose their gender norms on your infant. It's your duty as a parent.

emptywheel @electrospaces I don't know whether they do or not. No one does. It's not checked. @pwnallthethings
