We explain and analyze the news that matters. PoliticusUSA was founded in February of 2008 by Jason Easley.
PoliticusUSA is fiercely corporate-free political news and analysis. We have grown into being White House and Congressional credentialed journalists and are proud to have become a Reuters publishing partner.
Our first responsibility is to the people.
We started and maintain the site with old-fashioned hard work and dedication – not a drop of investment capital was used in the startup. We do not seek grants or funding from foundations. We do not accept advertising dollars from any outlet that would have even the opportunity to dictate our coverage. There is no think tank dictating our analysis. We don’t ask for money from readers. We are not affiliated with any other group, political PAC or party.
PoliticusUSA is 100% minority-owned and deliberately out of the beltway.

“If by a ‘Liberal’ they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people-their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties-someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a ‘Liberal,’ then I’m proud to say I’m a Liberal.”~J.F.K.
If you think we have some responsibility for the poor, the elderly, the veterans, the disabled, and the vulnerable in society and you believe in a government of and by the people rather than of and by the corporations, welcome to PoliticusUSA.
