We have the power to do any damn fool thing we want to do, and we seem to do it about every 10 minutes. Former Senator J. William Fulbright
They say that what happens in Las Vegas stays in Las Vegas. That might be appropriate for Sin City, but not for our nation’s capital.
Unfortunately, ninety-five percent of what happens in DC stays in DC at the expense of ordinary, law-abiding, tax-paying citizens. Every day, favors are trading in latte-filled rooms (they used to be smoke-filled) for the benefit of lobbyists, donors, and big corporations.
Very little of this ever sees the light of day through either honest government statistics or faithful media reporting.
Our goal is to remove the veil of secrecy and create a place for greater accountability.
Welcome to DC Alert, a daily collection and breaking news on the truth behind legislation, government data, political maneuvering, conflicts of interests, and the who, what, and why that comes with it all.
We seek out stories not normally covered by the main street media and ones that will have an impact on the day-to-day lives of our readers.
Honest, respectful,unique, and timely, DC Alert goes well beyond the headlines and talking points.
