20170728_160313December is always the third of my three fundraisers each year (along with April and August). So, please, I greatly appreciate any and all financial support. Nothing encourages me more than your appreciation, especially in monetary form.

Here are seven ways for you to contribute to iSteve:

First: So far, I haven’t been blackballed from Paypal. You can use Paypal (non-tax deductible) by going to the page on my old blog here. Paypal accepts most credit cards. Contributions can be either one-time only, monthly, or annual. (Monthly is nice.)

Second: You can mail a non-tax deductible donation to:

Steve Sailer
P.O Box 4142
Valley Village, CA 91617-0142

Third: You can make a tax deductiblecontribution via VDARE by clicking here. (VDARE has been kiboshed from use of Paypal for being, I dunno, EVIL. But Stripe and other ways of contributing are still working.) Note: the VDARE site goes up and down on its own schedule, so if this link stops working, please let me know. Don’t forget to click my name.

Fourth: You can use Bitcoin:

I’m using Coinbase as a sort of Paypal for Bitcoins.

Coinbase payments are not tax deductible.

Below are links to two Coinbase pages of mine. This first is if you want to enter a U.S. dollar-denominated amount to pay me.

Pay With Bitcoin (denominated in U.S. Dollars)

This second is if you want to enter a Bitcoin-denominated amount. (Remember one Bitcoin is currently worth many U.S. dollars.)

Pay With Bitcoin (denominated in Bitcoins)

Fifth: if you have a Wells Fargo bank account, you can transfer money to me (with no fees) via Wells Fargo SurePay. Just tell WF SurePay to send the money to my ancient AOL email address steveslrAT aol.com — replace the AT with the usual @). (Non-tax deductible.) There is no 2.9% fee like with Paypal or Google Wallet, so this is good for large contributions.

Sixth: if you have a Chase bank account (or even other bank accounts), you can transfer money to me (with no fees) via Chase QuickPay (FAQ). Just tell Chase QuickPay to send the money to my ancient AOL email address (steveslrATaol.com — replace the AT with the usual @). If Chase asks for the name on my account, it’s StevenSailer with an n at the end of Steven. (Non-tax deductible.) There is no 2.9% fee like with Paypal or Google Wallet, so this is good for large contributions.

Seventh: send money via the Paypal-like Google Wallet to my Gmail address(that’s isteveslrATgmail .com — replace the AT with a @). (Non-tax deductible.)

Thanks!

    Steve is an extremely White White guy. Looking like he couldn't care less is just how they present themselves to the world.

    Speaking of race check out who our betters in the Florida state government think are White people:

    White woman -

    https://mylifeofcrime.files.wordpress.com/2017/12/magbanuakatherine-info.jpg

    And a couple of White men:

    It's not like they are just going off verbal descriptions. They have the photos and the real people are incarcerated.

    This is standard operating procedure in Florida, Utah and many other states.

  2. What do you think about the space aliens Steve? I’d pay for a post on that NYT article. Didn’t you say you saw that phenomenon folks from California to Nevada observed a couple years ago? The Navy said it was had test fired a missile but the video I saw sure didn’t look like a missile…

    A few months ago a woman in my neighborhood told the FBI she was driving home and followed a flying saucer through our neighborhood for three miles. I heard about it from another neighbor, who heard it from another neighbor, who works at the FBI in DC, who said it got brought up at some meeting there at the FBI, and was nonplussed when he found out the incident under discussion had occurred in our gated community.

    My general opinion for the last 20 years has been that the Cold War produced a lot of whizbang experimental flying machines that were hard for accidental civilian witnesses to describe accurately with the vocabularies they had, and that the US and USSR governments didn't mind or actively encouraged flying saucer talk to muddy the waters. E.g., Roswell in 1947 was a high tech strategic reconnaissance balloon made out of brand new synthetic fibers.

    A suggestion: Setup a Patreon account. It is PC as hell, but you should be fine. If not, then the open speech system Hatreon would work too. You’ll need to create some content that is just for patrons, but it is another funding mechanism that is quite popular.

  4. Sent. Happy Christmas.

    Say, any commentary on Google, Inc.’s newest doodle touting “December Global Festivities?”

    This phrase is one of those visceral philological and linguistic matters of which Tolkien and Orwell were so expert: the very words, printed or spoken, are beyond merely anodyne and vapid, like, say, “Happy Holidays” (Great, which holy days; just holy days in general? Why don’t you ever say that on Easter or Sawhain?). No, “December Global Festivities” is both horrifying in its manipulative and invidious intent (in ways Orwell perhaps best explored), and ineffably offensive and unpleasant essence (in ways Tolkien perhaps best explored with his famous discussion of how beautiful is the phrase “cellar door” and similar works).

    By being evil and off-putting in so many ways simultaneously, “December Global Festivities” is easily the most deplorable thing yet in this vein.

  7. It’s just a shame that all dollars spend the same. I can’t afford to be a major donor, but know that the money I give was honestly and dearly earned by the sweat of my brow. I’ve formed the habit of disregarding my nominal pay schedule and dividing my net paycheck by the number of hours I work so as to arrive at my real hourly take-home rate. Then, whenever I’m contemplating a purchase, I consider it in terms of the number of hours I will have to work to make good on it. This is real microeconomic thinking of the sort that approximates to a physical science, and it let’s you know just how much of your life you will have to trade away for whatever it is you want to buy.

    Our lives in the sublunary sphere are nothing but time and effort; at bottom, that’s all we are. In economic matters, the goods and services we produce derive their value ultimately from the time and effort that went into them, and this value is accounted for, albeit very imperfectly, by a monetary figure. By donating money to Steve, you are in a very real sense donating some of your time and effort—your life–to him. This is the kind of thing that matters down here. “Money talks,” as the saying goes, and it is of paramount importance to provide financial assistance to those institutions, such as churches an public intellectuals, that are necessary for higher life but are not in and of themselves intrinsically profitable on a strictly economic basis.

    To wit, based on initial assumptions, I’ve figured that perhaps $10.00/month might be a fair subscription rate if Steve was a subscription service, although I might be low-balling this. I have therefore made a donation of $120.00 for the year, through the VDARE portal. This represents about 1.2 days’ worth of the clear, net proceeds of my labors. And as there are 260 working days per year, this is just under one half of one percent of my economically useful time.

    It does not sound like much in the great scheme of things. It may perhaps buy Steve up to 8 decent meals, or 4-5 new books for his library, or 2-3 tanks of gas for his car. But human nature is so selfish. When you look at the cold numbers, and realize that now you will “only” keep 99.5% of what you might have kept to yourself for the year, tell me: Who does not feel the sting of that 0.5 percent? Does the morsel not become much dearer to you when its value is so starkly displayed? The giving up of one’s life is not easy or pleasant, but that’s what makes it a real gift. No one attains any merit for giving that which costs him nothing.

    Surely Steve has enough readers that, if they all followed suit, it would keep his body and soul together for another year. Merry Christmas to Steve and all, and let’s keep this thing alive.

    Good call. For instance, it seems accepted now that the US was spoofing Sweden with at least some of the submarine sightings in the 1980s, so it isn’t like we, or anyone else for that matter, would be averse to something like you describe.

  16. You might consider promoting the Brave web browser, founded by Brendan Eich (co-founder of Netscape who got kicked out of the Mozilla project’s lead position because they discovered he had donated to the opposition of gay marriage in California).

    The Brave web browser now _regularly_ and _automatically_ dispenses the cryptocurrency, BAT (Basic Attention Token) directly to content providers it detects — even demonetized youtube content providers. They just notified me today that 25 that it sent 25 BAT (~$10 at the current exchange rate) on my behalf, divided among 40 content providers I visited over the last month. The next contribution will be Jan 17.

    I wish the BAT model applied to non-browser Youtube viewing. I'd love to kick a buck or two to all the channels I watch without going through the hassle of setting up a Patreon account, even if Google took a small cut. YouTube is doing their best to suppress non-commercial or alternative channels. Maybe someone could exploit this niche by using some of the open source P2P video libraries and cryptocurrencies and getting the authors monetized.

  27. Steve, you should replicate the Washington “non profit” Think Tank model. I.e., create a shell 501c, assemble a crony BoD that authorizes you a salary of $500,000. Viola! Tax free donations.

    E.g. A Grace-Marie Turner has stood up something called The Galen Institute. A 501c that apparently is a mouthpiece for Big Health Care. The IRS 990 suggests the “Institute” is a 2 or 3 person shop that works out of a shabby walk-up in Old Town Alexandria.

    Given all of the complexity, Grace-Marie pays herself $330,000 a year to oversee operations. She also shovels her husband $40K to do the accounting (QuickBooks anyone?)

    P.S. Hire me as an officer. I’ll make you coffee and put out the cat as a $150,000 Senior VP.

    I'm pretty darn white myself, and had the same attitude in my twenties except when I went to bars or special occasions. If you are a guy with proportions that don't suit an off the rack shirt, going tailored looks way better, especially if you have broad enough shoulders and are not overweight. Western countries have a rich tradition of tailoring, it's not like I'm suggesting that Steve start wearing gold chains.

    I wouldn't have commented if it was a t-shirt or Hawaiian collared, but it's something that could be worn to a business meeting worn for a holiday snap.

  30. Ta-Nehisi Coates deletes widely read Twitter account

    Dec 2017

    NEW YORK (AP) — Ta-Nehisi Coates has had enough.
    The influential author and journalist has deleted his widely followed Twitter account, writing “peace, y’all. I’m out.” Coates had had a contentious exchange with Cornel West, author of “Race Matters.” West had recently called Coates’ views on race simplistic and defeatist. He contended that Coates was too uncritical of Barack Obama and was preoccupied with white acceptance.

    Coates rebutted West’s allegations and was defended by others, notably his friend and fellow writer Jelani Cobb. But early Tuesday, Coates tweeted, “I didn’t get in it for this.”

    I know I'm gonna rile-up a bunch of guys here, tonight: but, I like Cornel - he's a fighter. He also smells hypocrisy, as efficiently as some of us here...he believes in truth, even if looking for it, these days, sucks big time. He has been on a long and twisty path for decades...and, he has accepted mistakes he has made ( more or less) as far as his assumptions and generalizations about white people (more or less). What I like about him, is that he never gets ugly in his debates with anyone. I think he gets it that China will become all of our overlords; if not for Trump throwing a wrench in the wheels, right now, in the early stages. He can't say he supports Trump, ever; but he knows what the USA is up against.

    You could do with a tailored shirt, Steve.
     
    Steve is an extremely White White guy. Looking like he couldn't care less is just how they present themselves to the world.

    Speaking of race check out who our betters in the Florida state government think are White people:

    White woman -

    And a couple of White men:

    It's not like they are just going off verbal descriptions. They have the photos and the real people are incarcerated.

    This is standard operating procedure in Florida, Utah and many other states.

    I’m pretty darn white myself, and had the same attitude in my twenties except when I went to bars or special occasions. If you are a guy with proportions that don’t suit an off the rack shirt, going tailored looks way better, especially if you have broad enough shoulders and are not overweight. Western countries have a rich tradition of tailoring, it’s not like I’m suggesting that Steve start wearing gold chains.

    I wouldn’t have commented if it was a t-shirt or Hawaiian collared, but it’s something that could be worn to a business meeting worn for a holiday snap. Other than that he was presentable, hair and facial hair neatly trimmed, looking good. With a less smock-like shirt and a level horizon, everything would have been in sync.

    My general opinion for the last 20 years has been that the Cold War produced a lot of whizbang experimental flying machines that were hard for accidental civilian witnesses to describe accurately with the vocabularies they had, and that the US and USSR governments didn't mind or actively encouraged flying saucer talk to muddy the waters. E.g., Roswell in 1947 was a high tech strategic reconnaissance balloon made out of brand new synthetic fibers.

    I agree. These last two years, people have gone into overdrive about ET’s. People are convinced that the arctic is “the zone,” and, the 7′ tall aliens come from the arctic circle. Makes me laugh: youngish Finns made a ton of money with Iron Sky

    However, the weird sh*t from Cuba, for the state dept. folks, was…well, weird.

  36. Anonymous • Disclaimer says:

    Bill Gates used to refer to a variable quantity of money as a “Brodie”. The value of a Brodie was the current value of the quantity of Microsoft stock former Microsoft employee Richard Brodie left with, or sold, when he left the firm. Gates was expressing discontent with Brodie’s having left and pointing out what he’d be worth if he’d just stayed with the company.

    Similarly, the value of a unit known as the “Sailer” will probably be known to future generations as the differential value of all the Bitcoin Steve Sailer immediately converted to dollars vs. what that amount of BTC would be worth if he’d kept the stuff.

    I’m guessing that one Sailer would probably buy me a T-38 Talon of my own about now. (At any given time there’s usually one on proffer in Trade-A-Plane, usually a pile of T-38 and F-5 parts the vendor, perhaps the Thornton Corporation, will put together for you if you put the cash up. Whether they accept Bitcoin is unknown. )

    Not to be confused with a Sailer, a Senine, however, is :

    A Senine of gold = a Senum of silver = A measure of barley (or any other grain)
    A seon of gold = 2 senines of gold
    A shum of gold = 2 seons of gold
    A limnah of gold = the value of them all*

    Or one bottle of Pay Lay Ale, Masonic Breweries, Nauvoo, Ill.

    You might consider promoting the Brave web browser, founded by Brendan Eich (co-founder of Netscape who got kicked out of the Mozilla project's lead position because they discovered he had donated to the opposition of gay marriage in California).

    The Brave web browser now _regularly_ and _automatically_ dispenses the cryptocurrency, BAT (Basic Attention Token) directly to content providers it detects -- even demonetized youtube content providers. They just notified me today that 25 that it sent 25 BAT (~$10 at the current exchange rate) on my behalf, divided among 40 content providers I visited over the last month. The next contribution will be Jan 17.

    I wish the BAT model applied to non-browser Youtube viewing. I’d love to kick a buck or two to all the channels I watch without going through the hassle of setting up a Patreon account, even if Google took a small cut. YouTube is doing their best to suppress non-commercial or alternative channels. Maybe someone could exploit this niche by using some of the open source P2P video libraries and cryptocurrencies and getting the authors monetized.
