So I finally got a picture of myself at my new weight of 175 pounds, down from the 220 pounds I spiked up to in 2015 during Merkel’s Million Muslim March. I appreciate you putting up with my stepping away from the keyboard long enough to walk a few miles per day. I hope to be in this for the long run, which being 220 was not conducive towards.

But then I went for a barefoot walk and gave myself huge blisters, which she shall see.

Thanks to everybody who contributed so far to the August iSteve fundraiser.

August is one of the three months of the year (along with December and April) when I hassle you for donations. I sometimes find myself discouraged, but then my loyal readers chip in with cash in its manifold forms, which I find highly encouraging. Say not the struggle nought availeth.

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.

I haven’t taken a new picture of myself, but I’m down to 6’4″ and 175 pounds. Honest!

I’ll soon prove it to you.

I peaked at 220 pounds in the fall of 2015 during Merkel’s Mistake. That was a wake-up call that no matter how insane Respectable World Leaders are acting, I can’t stop taking care of my health just because they aren’t worrying about the the well-being of their nations.

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:

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. Boohoo, service jobs cater to bad people with money. But at least they are done by good people (i.e., immigrants): https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2019/08/americas-hot-new-job-being-rich-persons-servant/595774/

  2. Trump used the phrase “Hates Whites” for the first time and it goes unmentioned on this site?

    Just don’t sit on a bench in Hollywood and hitchhike. We don’t want to begin doubting your gender identification.

    For some serious blistering, Real Life Lore has identified the longest walkable route in the world, from Cape Agulhas in South Africa to Magadan in Siberia. Any journey on which Uganda is likely the safest stretch must be mighty interesting.

  4. Just $1619 to become a Sustaining Member — and fight the ongoing scourge of slavery

  5. On the topic of Merkel’s Hegira, here is an article from Roger Boyes of the Times of London, which demonstrates one of the reasons why otherwise sensible and rational people are unable to open their mouths about immigration without saying something cretinous. To wit, Mr. Boyes constructs rational sounding talking points by presenting disastrous data by deploying what can best be described as “the glass is 1% full” verbiage:

    https://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/comment/angela-merkels-great-migration-gamble-is-paying-off-j5ccv8zrq

    For those without a Times subscription, the following quotes (and their translations) are all you really need to read:

    Yet German employment statistics don’t really justify the political assumptions of the anti-immigrant lobby. More than a third of refugees from seven key countries — Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, Somalia, Eritrea, Syria and Afghanistan — now have legal jobs and are paying into the social insurance system. Employers expect this number to rise provided the economy does not lurch into recession in the next quarter.

    Translation: Well north of 60% of these immigrants have not found gainful employment four years after entering the country in spite of well nigh all of them being of working age. This may improve a bit over time, but not if there’s a recession any time soon – which there almost certainly will be.

    There are three reasons for this relatively swift integration. First, the refugees are young, fit and well-educated. Forty-two per cent of Germany’s 2015-16 intake of refugees had received secondary education at home.

    Translation: 58% of the migrants haven’t even completed secondary education – and it’s not as if Afghanistan is all that well known for the quality of the secondary educational qualifications emanating from its schools.

    The biggest employer turned out to be the postal service; online shopping has created a huge need for package delivery. Fast-food chains, hotels and, above all, the medium-sized family businesses that are the economy’s lifeblood have been hiring.

    Translation: The 35% or so of immigrants who have found work have done so in the lowest skilled cohorts of the labour force, designing and building the next generation of cutting edge, high tech Currywurst mit Pommes.

    When Merkel opened the gates, Dieter Zetsche, head of Daimler, said it would be “the basis of the next German economic miracle”.

    Translation: Things have worked out so badly that we have dug up a quote from four years ago when the experiment began and haven’t felt confident enough to go back to Herr Zetsche to see what he thinks now.

    I just went to schooldigger to check out the quality of those Afghani middle schools. They don't seem to cover Afghanistan.

    Great fisking of the NY Times propaganda paper, I.P.!
  6. WaPo’s article about “neo-nazi” neglects to mention that he is asain:

    The name “Lin” did seem suspicious. Democracy dies in darkness, I thought.

    Anyway, thanks for the blog, check’s in the mail.

  9. Am I missing a Morrison reference in the first sentences? Is Steve saying that Merkel will see his foot blisters because Muslims consider the sole an insult?

    My longest walk was across two states on the Appalachian Trail, but they were small states. One of the many things I like about Steve is that he is an old hiker.

  12. Cancer Patient Says Question Could Save Lives: ‘Do You Have Eastern European Jewish Ancestry?’

    Thought this might be of interest around these parts. Apologies if old news. Selected excerpts:

    The panel says that Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry — meaning Jewish forebears from Eastern Europe — is enough to consider genetic testing for BRCA mutations, even without a known family history of cancer.

    “It’s really primary care physicians and gynecologists that need to be educated on this matter so that they start identifying their patients who are at this heightened risk,” Corduck says. “Asking the simple question: ‘Do you have Eastern European Jewish ancestry?’ will save so many lives.”

    There are also high-risk groups beyond Ashkenazi Jews, says Dr. Judy Garber, a medical oncologist at Dana-Farber. They include some French Canadians, “and many populations in the world have small groups who have an increased risk. Some Caribbean populations also can be included in that list.”

    Stopped eating sugar and starch. In particular, I didn't try to rely on willpower to eat in moderation: Oh, I'll just eat ONE slice of pizza.

    Nah, I really really like sugar and starch, so the less often I remind myself of how much I like them by eating a little of them, the easier it became to forget how much I like sugar and starch.

  17. Steve, I know you like living in CA, but now might be the time to leave given that they’re now massively expanding benefits for illegals; only the super-rich are going to be left in a few years.
