Blake Masters, Peter Thiel’s associate, appears to have a solid lead in Arizona, winning everywhere except the upscale suburb of Scottsdale.

I don’t follow politics that closely, but it would seem like a good idea for Republicans to nominate high quality individuals like Masters in Arizona and J.D. Vance in Ohio.

It’s time for my August triennial fundraiser. I need a new car to replace my 1998 Infiniti. And dog food for Lambo:

Here are nine ways for you to contribute:

First: Most banks now allow fee-free money transfers via Zelle.

Zelle is really a good system: easy to use and the fees are nonexistent.

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.

Zelle contributions are not tax deductible.

Second: 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.

Third, Zelle might work with other banks too. Here’s a Zelle link for CitiBank. And Bank of America.

Fourth: 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.)

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

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

I have no idea why somebody carefully hung this empty picture frame from a tree alongside the Fryman Canyon hiking trail, but I appreciate it, like I appreciate your support.

Sixth: 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: first, click on “Earmark your donation,” then click on “Steve Sailer:”

This is not to say that you shouldn’t click on John’s fund too, but, please, make sure there’s a blue dot next to my name.

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.

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.)

Eight: You can send me Bitcoin. Bitcoin payments are not tax deductible.

Here’s my Bitcoin address:

1EkuvRNR86uJzpopquxdnmF23iA3vzdDuc

Here’s the OCR

Please let me know if this works, ideally by sending me Bitcoin. Or let me know what else you’d like to send me.

If you’re sending to a crypto address that belongs to another Coinbase user who has opted into Instant sends in their privacy settings, you can send your funds instantly to them with no transaction fees. This transaction will not be sent on chain, and is similar to sending to an email address.

Learn more about sending and receiving crypto.

Send off-chain funds

Mobile

  1. Tap at the bottom
  2. Tap Send
  3. Tap your selected asset and enter the amount of crypto you’d like to send
  4. Enter the Receiver’s crypto address or scan their crypto QR code to see if the address belongs to a Coinbase user

Computer

  1. Sign into Coinbase.com

  2. Click Send at the top right

  3. Click your selected asset and enter the amount of crypto you’d like to send

  4. Enter the Receiver’s crypto address or scan their crypto QR code to see if the address belongs to a Coinbase user

Obsolete: Below are links to two Coinbase pages of mine. But these don’t work anymore. I will try to fix them. 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)

Ninth: I added Square [which is now Block] as a 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.

    OT Democrat foreign policy has been to project weakness, and then hurriedly overcompensate, exposing our forces and reputation to more danger. With all the stumbling in Ukraine (and kowtowing in China [and surrender in Afghanistan {and enabling cartels at the border}]), you might be forgiven for forgetting that we still have bases in Iraq. There are reports that one was less attacked than suffered an attempted workmanlike demolition with bulldozers. This comes after days of unrest. Maqtada as-Sadr, the guy we didn’t want to gain power in Iraq, has gained official power in Iraq and is, in fact, now a member of parliament. So he celebrated by having his guys take over parliament in a protest three days ago. They’re still there. On the bright side, maybe this means he hasn’t been sworn in yet?

    “I don’t follow politics that closely, but it would seem like a good idea for Republicans to nominate high quality individuals like Masters in Arizona and J.D. Vance in Ohio“

    Of course you follow politics closely, Mr. Sailer. That’s why you wrote this statement tongue in cheek. It’s not like you “no longer believe that freedom and democracy are compatible” or think American entry into WW1 was a secret plot directed by the “Houses of Morgan and Rothschild” (Masters), or that Vance has done a complete about face to fellate Trump (He condemned the former president as “an idiot,” described himself as a “Never Trump guy,” and messaged a friend that he vacillated between thinking that Trump was a “cynical asshole” and “America’s Hitler”).

    And, of course, it’s not like Peter Theil is a billionaire homosexual technocrat. I thought we are to loathe Silicon Valley elites. Why should the white working class be worried about a gay man embracing the work of Curtis Yarvin, who champions “formalism,” a theory that argues against democracy and in favor of a federal government structure that operates more like a corporation or dictatorship.

    Vance, Masters, Walker, and Oz will probably all lose (with increasing likelihood in that order). Not that big of a deal as long as Rs take the House, sufficient to stop the worst of Klain’s agenda (though it would be nice to block some judges).

  23. Masters is better than Flake or McCain or Kyl. Arizona Republican Party Civil War over mass immigration is in full swing.

    SAND STATE FED-INDUCED REAL ESTATE ASSET BUBBLE SUBTEXT IN ARIZONA

    Remember the sand states of Florida and Arizona and California and Texas and the belly up real estate asset bubble crash from about 15 years ago? Remember that the JEW/WASP Ruling Class of the American Empire deliberately created that real estate asset bubble to force more debt after the tech and NASDAQ bubble?

    Realize that the current asset bubble in stocks and bonds and real estate and just about everything else is twice as big as the previous two Fed-created asset bubbles combined.

    Mania and delirium and tip toeing through the Tulip Bubble and the Mississippi Bubble and now the asset bubble to end all asset bubbles is bubbling and the POP sound is achingly close and the greedy money-grubbing slobs will be howling with fury at the loss of their supposed wealth.

    You don’t even need someone to grasp HBD. Simple math suffices now.

    The immigration driven debacle in housing–pumped up by the Covid money printing and lockdowns and the “racial reckoning” destruction of rule-of-law energizing more “get me out of here”–is overwhelming.

    “The American Dream”, “affordable family formation”, our children’s, the nation’s future is melting down right in front of our eyes.

    “There is a great deal of ruin in a nation”, but 60 years of letting the minoritarian jackals have their run of looting America has pretty much used up the material and social capital that my ancestors heaped up over the previous couple hundred.

    Any competent politician willing to offer the people some basic nationalist sanity should have a clear path to victory. No detailed HBD exposition required. The platform can simply be

    “Had Enough?”

  26. “Blake Masters,” someone noted, sounds like a character right out of Days of Our Lives or As the World Turns. Let’s hope he’s the real deal

  27. @EdwardM

    JD Vance is favored to win.

    Masters is still in it, but less than 50% chance.

    Walker has a path to victory, but seems too incompetent to execute.

    I bet Oz loses.

    So maybe 1-2 wins out 4.

    I’d be shocked if all 4 lose. Especially JD Vance. He just needs a couple Trump rallies and he’s there.

    Don’t know anything about Masters but Vance doesn’t appear to be a high quality candidate. Apparently he hasn’t been seen much since winning the primary. Still a heavy favorite since Ohio is a red state but could be dangerous to start taking victory for granted as the Democrats have nominated someone who can at least fake being a moderate. In contrast to the Republicans who seem to prefer nominating hard liners in blue states and going down to glorious defeats.

    In all that mass of stuff I read, there’s often one piece that stands way above the rest. This week that one was Michael Anton’s essay “They Can’t Let Him Back In” at a website named compactmag.com, previously unknown to me.

    Anton is the guy who wrote “The Flight 93 Election” back in 2016, one of the most politically influential opinion columns ever published. He subsequently served in the Trump administration.

    This new essay, “They Can’t Let Him Back In,” is a must-read. The “Him” there is of course Donald Trump. Anton lays out likely scenarios for the next 2½ years, based on the hypothesis that the regime will do anything at all, up to and including a military coup, to prevent another Trump presidency.

    I’ll say no more except: Read that article. It’s brilliant.

    https://compactmag.com/article/they-can-t-let-him-back-in

    And just what is so terrible about Trump anyway? I get many of his critics’ points, I really do. I hear them all the time from my mother. But even if we were to stipulate them all, do Trump’s faults really warrant tearing the country apart by shutting out half of it from the political process?

    Love him or hate him, during Trump’s presidency, the economy was strong, markets were up, inflation was under control, gas prices were low, illegal border crossings were down, crime was lower, trade deals were renegotiated, ISIS was defeated, NATO allies were stepping up, and China was stepping back (a little). Deny all that if you want to. The point here is that something like 100 million Americans believe it, strongly, and are bewildered and angered by elite hatred for the man they think delivered it.

    Nor was Trump’s record all that radical—much less so than that of Joe Biden, who is using school-lunch funding to push gender ideology on poor kids, to cite but one example. Trump’s core agenda—border protection, trade balance, foreign restraint—was quite moderate, both intrinsically and in comparison to past Republican and Democratic precedent. And that’s before we even get to the fact that Trump neglected much of his own agenda in favor of the old Chamber of Commerce, fusionist, Reaganite, Conservatism, Inc., agenda. Corporate tax cuts, deregulation, and bombing Syria: These are all things Trump’s base doesn’t want, but the oligarchs desperately do, which Trump gave them. And still they try to destroy him.

    Interesting that Trump’s toadie is essentially referring to Trump’s various war rooms on Jan 6 as “one of his many faults”, even as his own hand picked advisors were telling him that he lost the election.

    “And that’s before we even get to the fact that Trump neglected much of his own agenda in favor of the old Chamber of Commerce, fusionist, Reaganite, Conservatism, Inc., agenda. Corporate tax cuts, deregulation, and bombing Syria: These are all things Trump’s base doesn’t want, but the oligarchs desperately do, which Trump gave them. And still they try to destroy him.”
