2019 has been another strong year for iSteve. So far in 2019 there have been 1,685 blog posts comprising 666,9555 with is a lot, perhaps a half dozen typical books. You all have contributed 226,393 comments comprising 15,744,145 words, which is an insane amount. So far, iSteve has seen 4,211,669 unique visits total 10,355,015 page views with a little under 2 weeks to go in 2019.

It’s been a very good year and I thank all my readers for their contributions, which dwarf mine in volume. On the other hand, as Reggie Jackson once said about the 1977 New York Yankees, I’m the straw that stirs the drink.

Sanity is just so much more fun of a way to use your brain than to enslave your mind to Crimetop.

So, I want to say thanks to my veteran donors who have kept me going over all these years: Say not the struggle nought availeth.

And too the new readers interested in investing in my continuing to be the most important American social analyst that nobody has ever heard of, now’s your chance.

As I mentioned, in 2020 I want to put aside enough money to replace by 1998 car with almost 265,000 miles on it. Thanks for the 188 comments full of purchasing advice. I have been studying the suggestions assiduously.

December is one of the three months of the year (along with April and August) when I hassle you for donations.

Large or small, I find each to be a personal message of encouragement to keep doing what I’m doing. I more or less figured out the basic logic of the 21st Century, which hasn’t made me popular, but with your support I can keep on keeping on pointing out how the world works.

Here are eight ways for you to contribute to me, iSteve:

First: 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

Third: You can make a tax deductible contribution via VDARE by clicking here.

Please don’t forget to click my name at the VDARE site so the money goes to me:

Screenshot 2017-12-23 15.25.23

VDARE has been kiboshed from use of Paypal for being, I dunno, EVIL. But you can give via credit cards, Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin, check, money order, or stock.

Note: the VDARE site goes up and down on its own schedule, so if this link stops working, please let me know.

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

Fifth: if you have a Chase bank account (or even other bank accounts), you can transfer money to me (with no fees) via Chase QuickPay/Zelle (FAQ). Just tell Chase QuickPay/Zelle 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 also good for large contributions.

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

Seventh: [Warning: Does this still work?] You can use Bitcoin using Coinbase. 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)

If Coinbase isn’t working, what other Bitcoin intermediaries would you recommend? My goal is to not get audited by the IRS. The SPLC has been out to get me via the IRS for about 15 years, so I am fastidious about paying my taxes. For several years, Coinbase instantly transformed any Bitcoin donations into cash so I didn’t have to worry about the cost basis of capital gains on Bitcoin, but instead just reported income.

Eighth: At one reader’s request, I recently added Square as an 8th fundraising medium, although I’m vague on how it works. If you want to use Square, send me an email telling me how much to send you an invoice for. Or, if you know an easier way for us to use Square, please let me know.

Thanks.

  1. Uh, oh, you’ve been warned twice about this by an astute commenter: starting the post with a number is not copacetic for Ron Unz’s software. It shows 116 comments at the bottom, but the post itself is all munged up.

    I wrote to tell you about the typos at the beginning. I assume you mean to say that you have 2/3 of a million words in your posts of 2019 (“words” was not stated), but you have an extra digit, making it look like a phone number.

    Also, for the web-astute here or the host himself: I don’t know if you have “unique visitors” for the entire year, or just the sum of monthly unique visits. The latter would be erroneous. I’m just interested in that to sort out my own numbers. Is the :uniqueness” simply based on IP numbers?

    Nonetheless, congratulations on the great numbers, Steve!

    Actually I, like Steve, thought the problem with the previous problem posts was entitling them with just a year alone. I was caught by surprise that starting the title with a year was enough by itself to cause problems.

    Race and racism in the geosciences
    Kuheli Dutt
    Geoscientists in the United States are predominantly White. Progress towards diversification can only come with a concerted shift in mindsets and a deeper understanding of the complexities of race.

    The geosciences are among the least diverse science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields in the United States, with almost 90% of doctoral degrees awarded to White people.

    Geoscience is too white! And apriori this means it’s racist. Could it possibly, maybe be that geoscience is by far the least sexy branch of science and thus the only people involved are nerds who do it for the love of it alone with little expectation of wealth or prestige? White people hogging all those important geoscience PhDs! Think of the impact on the rest of society…

    Whole thing is worth reading, it reads more like prose of critical theory than an assessment from a scientist about her field. Of course, we is never allowed to wonder if Ms Dutt herself might find intersectional sociology more interesting than the academic fields she finds herself in. She is apparently the ‘Assistant Director for Academic Affairs and Diversity at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO)’.

  3. OT, from today’s Debka.com: The Shin Bet domestic security service disclosed on Wednesday that the terrorists who planted the IED which killed Rena Shnerb five months ago belonged to a large terror network run by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) in the Ramallah district. Fifty suspects have been detained along with a substantial arsenal of M-16 and Kalashnikov semi-automatic rifles, Galil and Carbine assault rifles, a homemade mini-Uzi submachine gun, pistols, silencers, fertilizers for manufacturing bombs, detonators, iron ball bearings for explosives and a large assortment of ammo.

    How’s that for fine police work, if it turns out to be as they say?

  11. OT impeachment collapse
    Pelosi is refusing to call role (which would tie each congresscritter’s name to how they are voting). This information will be publicly accessible anyway after the vote (unless our wierdly consistently antiprocedural congress hides it). This is not the behavior of a confident opposition.

  13. 666,9555

    That’s the number of the beast, blocked from a soixante-neuf ménage-à-quatre by a comma/fig leaf, and followed by Hollywood’s generic telephone exchange.

    I remember an LTE once complaining that no matter how much was spent to make a movie look realistic, the fake phone numbers always destroyed the illusion for him.

    LOL on the mark of the beast. That last 6,000 was me, BTW.

    Yep, it was always 555 in the movies. I wonder who decided that - maybe an agreement between Bell Telephone and Hollywood moguls?

    All the other exchanges were in use somewhere, so people would get prank calls at home. 555 was never used (except by Ma Bell herself (eg, 555-1212), and thus was free. Unfortunately, it was also all too obvious.
  15. Well done. I get a little snarky sometime and for that I apologize. If it helps, I’m a monthly payment guy. I know how nice steady income can be.

    There could have been as many as ~ 2 x 8 x 9 = 144 families harassed due to Tommy TuTone, Redneck. I'm thinking of back before almost any cell phones (faxes were around I guess), so there were just the old-fashioned area codes that would have started with 2 through 9 (there's the 8), had either a 0 or 1 in the middle (there's the 2), and ended with 1 through 9 (there's the 9).

    We didn't have the time to call them all of them and ask for Jenny, but it was also a matter of money. Anyone remember long-distance charges?

    "Collect call for Jenny, will you accept the charges?"
    "Oh, God, no, honey, please we have to change our number, I can't get half way through making the meatloaf ..."
    "Sir, I think that's a no."

  21. So far, iSteve has seen 4,211,669 unique visits … with a little under 2 weeks to go in 2019.

    I believe this is an aggregate of daily unique visitors, meaning 10,000 to 15,000 unique visitors per day to iSteve summed up over ~350 days.

    The character of these visitors is inevitably partly guesswork which might be shored-up by comment-counts or other data.

    Here is one guess that may be close on the breakdown. At any given time, the iSteve blog might have:

    a.) Regulars: 4,000 to 6,000 different people actively following on a daily or near-daily basis (of whom the core group of regular commenters numbers in the hundreds at any given time, meaning the ‘lurker’ rate could be 95% even among this ‘Regulars’ category);

    b.) Semi-Regulars: 4,000 to 6,000 more sporadically but still ‘actively’ following;

    c.) a further pool of perhaps tens of thousands more one-time followers or readers, who would have fit into (a) or (b) at some point in the past, but who have dropped off anything like regular visiting within our given measuring-time window, due to work or personal commitments or the like (or who are deceased, such as former prolific blogger, cartoonist, and iSteve regular “Ex-Army,” a.k.a. Baloo, said to have died in 2015);

    d.) Baseline search-engine- or link-clinker-type traffic: 3,000 to 5,000 newbies who surf in once, clicking a random link or search result (this number was probably once double in size, before the late 2017 and early 2018 active google suppression began).*

    A given individual is not assigned a category for life, but (obviously) may move up or down categories given their own circumstances or inclinations at a given time.

    I would also have to include one last category, not related to blog visits directly:

    e.) those influenced in (say) any given week, by Sailer material indirectly, via repackaging by MSMers or borderline-MSMers (also including non-MSMer citations or quotations), on left and right, who either read or are one step removed from a regular reader (e.g., show writers on Fox News): Hundreds of thousands?

    __________

    * – Due to this well-document political suppression campaign by Google in cooperation with the ADL and SPLC, the likely cap for this category by 2019 I would expect to be half of the pre-suppression numbers and maybe lower still; given that random surfers-in will be a large share of any site, if iSteve has maintained its overall traffic roughly consistently despite a fall-off in entries-by-search, this suggests a strong increase in categories (a) and (b), which is also borne out in comment volume.

    • Replies: @Hail
    I should add, categories (a) and (b) will be bumped up by some number (in the thousands?) of those reading blog posts at VDare who do not click onto the small [Comment at Unz.com] link at the bottom (otherwise they'd be counted as daily visits in this blog's stats).

    VDare has republished Steve's blogposts since the 2000s, back to the iSteve Dot com [R.I.P.] era (I think), and certainly in the blogspot era.

    A pre-social media purge satire on Big Tech (Facebook):

  26. Baloo was a frequent contributor to the old Liberty magazine, a libertarian journal in black, blue and white printed on matte paper stock, and having been married to a libertarianess in those days we always had copies laying around. He also did a few things for the old Loompanics book catalog, some of whose offerings would probably get you put in jail for selling them now.

    I’m sorry to hear of his passing. I always got a kick out of his work.

    Remember though, the poor family who had to change their phone number due to Tommy TuTone AEN.

    There could have been as many as ~ 2 x 8 x 9 = 144 families harassed due to Tommy TuTone, Redneck. I’m thinking of back before almost any cell phones (faxes were around I guess), so there were just the old-fashioned area codes that would have started with 2 through 9 (there’s the 8), had either a 0 or 1 in the middle (there’s the 2), and ended with 1 through 9 (there’s the 9).

    We didn’t have the time to call them all of them and ask for Jenny, but it was also a matter of money. Anyone remember long-distance charges?

    “Collect call for Jenny, will you accept the charges?”
    “Oh, God, no, honey, please we have to change our number, I can’t get half way through making the meatloaf …”
    “Sir, I think that’s a no.”

    Steve Sailer is actually kept afloat by the rather substantial salary I pay him every month

    I was just trying to get some of the rightwing nitwits commenting here to recognize that the nonsense they’re spouting

    In 1994, he launched a surprise Republican primary challenge to incumbent Gov. Pete Wilson of California, running on a conservative, pro-immigrant platform against the prevailing political sentiment, and received 34% of the vote. Later that year, he campaigned as a leading opponent of Prop. 187, the anti-immigration initiative, and was a top featured speaker at a 70,000 person pro-immigrant march in Los Angeles, the largest political rally in California history to that date.

  30. Thanks for all the writing, Steve. I donate $20.00 a month. Not a large sum but not nothing, either. It is worth every penny.

  31. Have you purchased your new computer equipment?

    That was the thing before the car, so we would like to know. Ron says he pays you a “handsome salary.” (Is that how he put it?) We want you to be well compensated and well equipped, because you are a valuable member of our tribe.

    So, if you can find the time, please answer. We care.
