Dear Common Dreams Readers, Common Dreams is a small non-profit that exists only because of the support of our readers. No advertising; no paywalls: our content is free. But our costs are real. A free and independent press is essential to the health of a functioning democracy. Independent journalism and democracy itself have never been more fragile, more at risk than now. Without your support, we will not exist. Will you join again with those readers who have come forward to make sure Common Dreams has a future? Every donation makes a difference. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder

Man, the lows keep going lower. Now the sociopath-in-chief is bickering with a Congresswoman and the family of Sgt. La David Johnson, killed in Niger, pouting he didn't say the grotesque things they say he said; he hasn't denied he didn't know Johnson's name, which could be tough given he's calling his widow "the woman." This is not normal. The wrenching video of the return of Johnson's remains will remind you why it matters.
