Noam Chomsky says, "Greg Palast upsets all the right people."
Is there a special someone I can upset for you this holiday season?
Donate at least $45 (tax-deductible) to my research foundation and I'll send you a signed copy of the just-released book, "Project Censored 2006" -- with three guaranteed-to-upset stories: The Theft of 2004, Iraq for Sale and The Lynching of Dan Rather PLUS the 25 award winning stories too hot for America's press by the most courageous and outrageous reporters in the USA.
Go right now to to receive it in time for the holidays. And in the message box, tell me whom I should personally sign it for. (Mr. President, in case you are reading this, Dick is spelled with a "D".)
Or, for a minimum donation of $50 (tax-deductible) choose a signed copy of my book, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy -- "one of the most important tomes of this century," according to Howard Zinn.
Also available for a minimum donation of $50 is the DVD of the updated BBC film, "Bush Family Fortunes," signed.
For a minimum donation of $25 get a signed set of "The Joker's Wild" oversized deck of cards. The cards are the illustrated version of The Best Democracy Money Can Buy: check it out on the site at
Order this week to receive it well before Christmas, Hannukah and Kwanzaa.
Better yet, ORDER THE WHOLE GIFT SET (The Best Democracy Money Can Buy book, Joker's Wild Deck of Cards, Weapon Of Mass Instruction CD, and Bush Family Fortunes DVD) for a minimum donation of $200 at
WE NEED YOU TO KEEP US ALIVE. This year, my investigative team broke some extraordinary stories: the Republican Party's racist "caging lists" to knock out Black voters; the TWO secret plans for the US to control Iraq's oil; the US involvement in the coup d'etat against Hugo Chavez and more.
There is no way I can expose this stuff without the help of a killer investigative staff. But they keep asking for food and a lump of coal to stay warm. It being Christmas, I can't say no. All kidding aside, the investigations we have conducted for BBC TV, Democracy Now, and Harper's over the years have won us awards, brought some bad guys to justice, but have not come close to covering our costs.
We need your donations for us to keep going, to continue digging, and telling the truth on'm.
You may have noticed that things have been fairly silent at over the last few months - we have been working day and night on a bunker-buster of a book. Duck and cover, Mr. Vice-President! This takes staff time, equipment and huge operational costs. We are running deeply in the red -- but with the hopes that you'll support our work.
Please, if you think my reports are worth the reading, worth the broadcasting, keep our investigative team going with your tax deductible donation at:
OR BY CHECK made out to "IHC/Palast Investigative Fund" (mail to PO Box 923, Malibu, CA 90265).
Last year, your donations saved us from having to shut down due to legal bills to fight off (successfully) those who attack our work. I can't thank you enough.
As this Year of Fear comes to a close, let me leave you with one thought and hope: Peace on Earth. It's not original, but you can't beat it.
