Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that's 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent reporting. Since our very first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. If everyone who tunes into Democracy Now! signed up for a monthly donation of just $10, we could cover our operating costs for the entire year. Please do your part today. Right now, a generous donor will even DOUBLE your first monthly gift, which means it’ll go twice as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to start a new monthly donation, please don’t delay. We’re counting on your support. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love.

Trump Names Robert O’Brien as Fourth National Security Adviser

HeadlineSep 19, 2019

President Trump has named Robert O’Brien as his fourth national security adviser, after ousting John Bolton from the role last week. O’Brien is author of the 2016 book, “While America Slept: Restoring American Leadership to a World in Crisis,” a collection of essays promoting hawkish U.S. foreign policy. O’Brien is a longtime associate of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and previously served as the top U.S. hostage negotiator. In July, President Trump sent O’Brien to Sweden to win the release of A$AP Rocky, after the 30-year-old rapper’s arrest for allegedly assaulting a 19-year-old man in Stockholm. He’s previously worked as a national security adviser to the presidential campaigns of Republican candidates Ted Cruz, Scott Walker and Mitt Romney.
