iSteve has broken the 1,500 mark for blog postings for the first time ever in a single year. Since I started blogging in late 2001, I’m up to 17,418 posts totalling 8,584,102 words. In contrast, Animal Farm is less than 30,000 words and Remembrance of Times Past is 1,267,069 words. So take that, Orwell and Proust.

20170814_133437We also set a new record for page views in one year, breaking last year’s 10,061,393

In the coming week, iSteve will set records with the first ever 200,000 comments and 15,000,000 comments-words year. That’s really a lot. Thanks!

December 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.)

Christmas Laser Steve

Commenter Lot adds:

For paypal, you can currently avoid all fees on both sides of the transfer by (1) selecting the “friends and family” feature (2) using your bank account rather than credit card.

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 deductible contribution 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!

  1. Congratulations, Steve. BTW-has iSteve ever drawn the attention of literary people? Serious. You have a pretty unusual lens on the world that comes out in choice of subject, titling, etc. Absurdist? Comic? Dadaist? I don’t know, but your followers respond to the style.

    I sometimes think if I were a minor bourgeois guy from 1917 suddenly time-transported to 2017, I might adopt the same literary style to deal with an America where eternal verities have been tossed in the sewer, and the restoration of those verities seems very far in the offing.

    It's not perfect, but as the blog is an income producing business, Steve will be able to deduct expenses like equipment, travel, (home) office, research, and the like. That might even explain some of the motivation to write about golf courses and Turkish conspiracy theories.

  6. This would be OT in any current thread, so I’ll put it here.

    Hillary Clinton is Da Bomb:

    http://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/community/miami-dade/article188944039.html#storylink=latest_side

    When two security dogs reacted to a suspicious crate before an Art Miami tent opening early Saturday morning, Miami police officers briefly shut down the area for a few hours to investigate the possible threat.

    But when they opened up the offending crate, officers found something else instead: a punky portrait of Hillary Clinton in a studded jacket and shaggy pink haircut, in a neon picture frame to match.

    Somehow, the artist made Shrillary look even scarier than she already does:

  7. A year or so ago I tried to determine your position in the pantheon of bloggers. I failed. You must know, with your background in market research. Where do you stand among the general purpose political bloggers? If that’s not a meaningful category, tell me the best classifications.

    Steve is remarkably absent from other discussions. He hasn’t been attacked by the MSM like sites such as Breitbart.

    In the vlogging word, that I have begun following just recently, they do of course, refer to print commentators. But I have yet to hear a word about Steve.

    The vloggers seem to be young enough to be my children (some are younger than both). (Jordan Peterson is an exception).

    The listeners seem very juvenile. They make stupid meaningless comments, like how their host is dressed or his hair style.

    There has been a dust up over HBD topics. But no one has mentioned Steve (mind you, the quality of commenting is so low that even skimming is a pain. Especially from an iPad).

    I did leave a comment suggesting the vlogger (who was attacking the alt-right) read books like “The Blank Slate” and “The Bell Curve.” No response.

    It’s a mystery. Mind you, West Hunter hasn’t been attacked either. I really miss hbd*chick.

    Though you have a good writing style and are fairly erudite, Corvinus, I find that you will not understand many people's arguments and go forever trying to get the last word in. Maybe you just don't want to understand reality sometimes. I skip all post from and to Corvinus, unless there is a picture of a hottie embedded - try that one next.

  13. Rock on, Steve. You were pretty insightful to pick a market of pissed off white guys (and (((fellow white guys)))). The conditions for pissing us off have only grown over time, enlarging your market. I am not sure if that aspect has been happenstance or not but it works to your advantage.

    I read quite a few bloggers in the past (when blogging was new and cool) but once I found you there was no one else who was able to generate the quantity and quality of true, interesting, novel and funny posts. Everyone else dropped by the wayside.

    I am not sure if the ever-growing quantity of blog posts has a quality all of its own, or what that quality is, or if it is a net positive. But there is still plenty of insightfully TINF commentary here and for that I thank you guys and girls. And Unz.

    Yep. Glad I'm not the only one to notice something literary going on.

    BTW-can I ask you to give a thought to a suggestion of mine from a few weeks ago?

    "What we need is a Million Geek March on Washington next spring. Or call it a Million Manager March, or Million Engineer March, or sumpin'."

    "Simple, positive demands. Jobs for Americans (IOW, end visa programs). Jobs for breadwinners (IOW, end affirmative action). Maybe two or three more, but always framed positively."

    "Uniform for the March? NASA engineer circa 1960s. Short-sleeved white shirt, narrow tie, shirt pocket protector, belt-mounted calculator case."

    Purpose? Demonstrate strength of numbers, firmness of purpose, and political savvy to Washington decision-makers.

    I've been reading Unz for two years, and there's a lot of good, measured, and articulate anger here. I think Washington would benefit from actually seeing us.

    Steve contemplates Bill Maher's remark that Hope Hicks gives hicks hopes, and asks, "What do you call that kind of sentence where you use a two-word phrase twice but reverse the order?"

    A scan of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Figure_of_speech leads to
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antimetabole
    "In rhetoric, antimetabole (/æntɪməˈtæbəliː/ AN-ti-mə-TAB-ə-lee) is the repetition of words in successive clauses, but in transposed order; for example, "I know what I like, and I like what I know". It is related to, and sometimes considered a special case of, chiasmus."
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chiasmus
    (plural, chiasmi; from the Greek letter Xi, for the criss-crossing X-shaped diagram of two clauses, the second in reverse order of the first).

    If my copy of Mark Forsyth's The Elements of Elegance wasn't in storage, I'd tell you right away.

    He offers you all these little literary tricks, and gives you their Greek names, so you can double your output of aphorisms, as well as name-drop, or rather term-drop, them at cocktail parties.

    You should have a copy on your handy-dandy old-school reference shelf right above your workstation. You do have one of those, don't you?

    , @Autochthon
    You are thinking of chiasmus.The term comes of the cruciform orientation of the duplicated words created when one writes the first construction above the second; a kind of X can be drawn to connect the like words. Like so many useful things, the antient Greeks invented it. It is very effective rhetorically, pleasing aesthetically, and powerful mnemonically; as well as being rhetorically effective, aesthetically pleasing, and mnemonically powerful....

    It’s not perfect, but as the blog is an income producing business, Steve will be able to deduct expenses like equipment, travel, (home) office, research, and the like. That might even explain some of the motivation to write about golf courses and Turkish conspiracy theories.

  31. Steve, any chance of writing another book? It’s been nearly a decade since America’s Half-Blood Prince. What would be your topic that you think would be most important to write about? A follow-up on the consequences of electing a “half-blood prince?”

    Given your posting volume, I can definitely see the impracticability to it all. Still, if you had time to focus on a single topic, what would it be? (Personally, I would love a book titled Occam’s Butterknife).

    Bill Maher: "Isn't it weird Trump's gal Friday is Hope Hicks and his whole presidency is about giving hicks hope."

    That's clever.

    What do you call that kind of sentence where you use a two word phrase twice but reverse the order? I'd probably do it more often if I knew the name for it. It can be useful for, say, raising questions about the direction of the arrow of causation.

    Steve contemplates Bill Maher’s remark that Hope Hicks gives hicks hopes, and asks, “What do you call that kind of sentence where you use a two-word phrase twice but reverse the order?”

    A scan of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Figure_of_speech leads to

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antimetabole

    “In rhetoric, antimetabole (/æntɪməˈtæbəliː/ AN-ti-mə-TAB-ə-lee) is the repetition of words in successive clauses, but in transposed order; for example, “I know what I like, and I like what I know”. It is related to, and sometimes considered a special case of, chiasmus.”

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chiasmus

    (plural, chiasmi; from the Greek letter Xi, for the criss-crossing X-shaped diagram of two clauses, the second in reverse order of the first).
    I look forward to seeing a lot of chiasmi in Sailerian rhetoric.

    A year or so ago I tried to determine your position in the pantheon of bloggers. I failed. You must know, with your background in market research. Where do you stand among the general purpose political bloggers? If that's not a meaningful category, tell me the best classifications.

    I hold your blog in the highest regard. How do others feel?

    Steve is remarkably absent from other discussions. He hasn’t been attacked by the MSM like sites such as Breitbart.

    In the vlogging word, that I have begun following just recently, they do of course, refer to print commentators. But I have yet to hear a word about Steve.

    The vloggers seem to be young enough to be my children (some are younger than both). (Jordan Peterson is an exception).

    The listeners seem very juvenile. They make stupid meaningless comments, like how their host is dressed or his hair style.

    There has been a dust up over HBD topics. But no one has mentioned Steve (mind you, the quality of commenting is so low that even skimming is a pain. Especially from an iPad).

    I did leave a comment suggesting the vlogger (who was attacking the alt-right) read books like “The Blank Slate” and “The Bell Curve.” No response.

    To the community a question.

    If each spouse can "GIFT" around $14k per year "Tax Free", ......... why the Hell are the "Gifts" not tax free to the recipient like Steve.

    Doesn't it means that a 10k gift to a kid is taxable income to the kid if the Steve has to pay tax theory is correct?

    However, I always thought gifts were tax free to the recipient in all cases, and taxes were assessed to the donor providing certain limits have been exceeded like the 14k per year or certain lifetime maximums.

    Do you have file a special IRS form to have it recognized as tax free to the recipient?

    Which is it?

    With the Patreon community and others growing in importance, not being able to deduct for your taxes is one thing, but then having the recipient have to surrender 30% of it as well is a bridge too far.

    Patreon says they take 5%.

  37. Steve,

    Have you ever talked much about prof. Wilfred McClay’s work? I think he has the best diagnosis I have ever read about guilt in the modern age. The problem is that he has a couple of small essays on it, and they are all slightly different from each other, due to word length limits, etc. So it is annoying to go through all of them, only to notice a bit of copy/pasting, but at least check out one of these to get the basic argument

    http://www.iasc-culture.org/THR/THR_article_2017_Spring_McClay.php

    There is also one on FirstThings, I believe.

    One of them delves into international politics, ww2 reconciliation, civil war reconstruction, while other versions.

    He is currently writing a book on the topic of guilt. He also just published a piece, “Why Nations Matter”

    You are thinking of chiasmus.The term comes of the cruciform orientation of the duplicated words created when one writes the first construction above the second; a kind of X can be drawn to connect the like words. Like so many useful things, the antient Greeks invented it. It is very effective rhetorically, pleasing aesthetically, and powerful mnemonically; as well as being rhetorically effective, aesthetically pleasing, and mnemonically powerful….

    Steve,

    Have you ever talked much about prof. Wilfred McClay's work? I think he has the best diagnosis I have ever read about guilt in the modern age. The problem is that he has a couple of small essays on it, and they are all slightly different from each other, due to word length limits, etc. So it is annoying to go through all of them, only to notice a bit of copy/pasting, but at least check out one of these to get the basic argument

    http://www.booksandculture.com/articles/2014/janfeb/politics-of-guilt.html?paging=off

    http://www.iasc-culture.org/THR/THR_article_2017_Spring_McClay.php

    There is also one on FirstThings, I believe.

    One of them delves into international politics, ww2 reconciliation, civil war reconstruction, while other versions.

    He is currently writing a book on the topic of guilt. He also just published a piece, "Why Nations Matter"
    http://iasc-culture.org/THR/THR_article_2017_Fall_McClay.php

    Thanks for the links.

    Something I’ve not seen much of on YouTube.

    Yep. Glad I’m not the only one to notice something literary going on.

    BTW-can I ask you to give a thought to a suggestion of mine from a few weeks ago?

    “What we need is a Million Geek March on Washington next spring. Or call it a Million Manager March, or Million Engineer March, or sumpin’.”

    “Simple, positive demands. Jobs for Americans (IOW, end visa programs). Jobs for breadwinners (IOW, end affirmative action). Maybe two or three more, but always framed positively.”

    “Uniform for the March? NASA engineer circa 1960s. Short-sleeved white shirt, narrow tie, shirt pocket protector, belt-mounted calculator case.”

    Purpose? Demonstrate strength of numbers, firmness of purpose, and political savvy to Washington decision-makers.

    I’ve been reading Unz for two years, and there’s a lot of good, measured, and articulate anger here. I think Washington would benefit from actually seeing us.

    If the MSM can portray your populist demonstration as "Nazi", they will. And they can.

    Any attempt at a demonstration which does not comport with the political objectives of the owners of the MSM will be thus portrayed.

    This is why nothing really matters except for control of the MSM, and they are never, never giving that up. Just look at the emphasis on "deplatforming" the tiniest, most ineffectual voices of protest online.
