December is one of the three months of the year (along with April and August) 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.

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.

    You should be ashamed of yourself, you could be doing so much more in life with what Providence has granted you, but you just snark, year after year for paypal (or whoever tolerates you these days) pocket change.

    Disappointing, but I’m still hoping you are going to start aiming high some day.

    Steve aims to be the most accurate journalist, not the most accurate fortune teller. Only your Providence knew that Trump would win the election, not even Trump himself knew it.

    Why do you think PayPal-shaming or whatever it is that you’re doing will make you leftists look more sympathetic? After all the left is *supposed* to be on the side of the guy who fundraises from the fabled “small donors.” So give him a pat on the back, thanks.

    Steve is one of the most efficient sources of information for the busy working person. The succinct, sometimes snarky, and always information dense vignettes on this blog are always a welcome source of news even if the news itself is not welcome. Among other things this is after all, by far the most accurate source of reporting on human intelligence. True, cuz peer-reviewed scientific research says it is.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-politics/wp/2016/08/22/the-race-realist-theory-of-how-trump-can-win-explained/


    "The Republican Brain Trust is notoriously innumerate," Sailer wrote. "Look at the 2013 GOP Establishment 'autopsy' that claimed that Mitt Romney lost because Republicans hadn’t amnestied Mexican illegal aliens. There aren’t many Mexican voters in swing states. In truth, Romney let the election slip away by not doing very well among Rust Belt whites. According to the large sample size Reuters-Ipsos online panel, Romney won only 52 percent of the white vote across Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, all of which he lost in the Electoral College. Romney apparently did especially badly among white working class men in those six states."

  2. Steve,

    I’m going to tell you the same thing I tell any bum with his hand out: Get a job.

    I find begging like this distasteful in the extreme. And it’s not just distasteful, it’s beneath you. Or at least, I thought it was- clearly it isn’t.

    The next time you write about welfare, or beggars on the street, or some group that would rather ask for money than work; I’m going to remind you of your thrice yearly beg-a-thon.

    You should be ashamed of yourself.

    No offense, but if Steve instituted a paywall, then folks like you would be the first to complain.

    There's a difference between a drunken bum who hangs out on a sidewalk accosting random strangers for money and a talented street performer who does his thing while occasionally subtly motioning toward the cup on the ground. (And Steve is far more valuable than the latter.)

    Steve has had "real jobs" throughout his life. But it turns out that his core competency - Noticing Unpleasant Truths, and writing about them - has made him unemployable in the clown world of journalism.

    Would we be better off if Steve went back to market research and put his prodigious intellect to work figuring out new and exciting ways to advertise toilet paper? As Steve Jobs said to John Sculley, "Do you want to sell soda pop, or do you want to change the world?"

    If you find value in Steve's writing - and he is a prolific blogger who maintains a consistently high level of quality - then why not grant him a token of your appreciation? If not, then just ignore this post. Are you so easily triggered that you can't handle an occasional solicitation?

    As an aside, I might note that while you are hiding behind the security blanket of a pseudonym (as am I), Steve posts everything under his real name.

    I actually have tried to donate via coinbase in the past and there was no acknowledgment: I sought none, but the novel tech iffyness raises the issue of acknowledgment beyond a simple matter of courtesies. Also right now I honestly cannot make a respectable donation.
    And then there's this asshole, who moves me to make a widow's mite donation to at least certify that coinbase is good (I find that I have to go through a wallet app rather than the main site to "send," even after installing normie browsers in the latest version).
    , @albionrevisited
    You're a weasel. I'm not sure if there is a coordinated effort by the ADL and SPLC to troll dissident figures with attempts to defund them and demoralize their audiences, but I've been seeing this trend increasing over the past few months. Steve has a job.
    , @Bruno
    « Don’t handle my pseudonym »

    In case your message were not a hoax made to enhance donations, I have tried to find a translation of « Gros connard » in English. I don’t know whether what I found is accurate :

    Noun
    dickhead, fat bastard, big asshole, huge jerk, stupid motherfucker, fat son of a bitch ...

    I don’t know wich predicate suits you best, but you get the idea.

    , @Coag
    How is what Steve’s doing any different from any writer selling a book or article or monetizing a blog or a screenplay? I don’t know which alternate universe you just stepped out of but in this one writing for money is considered a legal and legitimate profession. You’re awake. This is the year 2019. We are on earth. Just wanted to make sure you’re with us.
    , @Jack D
    How is Steve different than Public Television and Public Radio? Or churches or universities or the Red Cross or any other organization that depends on fund raising?

    If you don't want to donate, don't, but don't gratuitously insult people.

    If he instituted a paywall we would be rid of nonsensical trolls like the guy you responded to.

    I’d gladly pay. I donate more than that on the justification that it is essentially a magazine subscription, of which I have none but used to have several.

    On the other hand, instituting a paywall would limit his audience a bit and probably make it tougher for new people to find. That would be a big downside.

  11. LOL @ the first two comments! I’m not sure whether they are complete trolls or not but I suspect that they are at least not completely earnest.

    Mr. Sailer:

    At the risk of appearing immodest or blatantly ingratiating, I will publicly declare here that I contributed a modest sum last month* as a token of my appreciation for your efforts and dedication and, especially, the often exceptional principle, discretion, fairness, balance, indulgence and even forbearance that I have found you to demonstrate in your moderation of comments. I find it particularly commendable that you allow comments that are critical of you (and have seen you state that actually welcome criticism)– even ones that are immoderately worded.

    While I would not claim to be above virtue-signaling, I do hope that this post of mine will inspire and encourage others who are blessed with the means to contribute, to do so, in an amount proportionate to their means and the value they place on your work and efforts. I know that before I finally took the plunge and contributed, seeing someone else mention that he had done so, would always evoke a feeling of shame in me.
    (*I would have given more and earlier but my financial obligations are many and my means limited.)

    That you are relegated to relative obscurity** and “panhandling” while your Respectable*** counterparts enjoy lucrative careers serving as little more than shills for the Woke Capital/ Globo-Homo / Military-Industrial Complex / Coalition of the Fringes ruling conglomerate, is yet another indication of how inverted the world we inhabit is.

    [MORE]

    (**And, forgive me, to having to share space with and appear alongside some of the other writers hosted here at Unz Review.)
    (***Note the capitalization; I do not use the word unironically).

    I extend my best wishes for the holiday season and the coming year to you and to the others who read and comment on this blog– at least all those who would not wish me harm and who would allow me to continue to enjoy the extraordinary kindness that this country, the United States of America, has shown me, my family, and my people.

    A question: In the right-hand-column that appears on each page of your blog, just below the photo of you as a young lad, you provide an AOL email address for general contact. You then go on, however (in the detailed information on payment options) to characterize that same email address as “ancient”. And recently, I saw a comment you had posted in which you replied to someone who had offered to send you a file by requesting that he send it to a Gmail address that you provided. So, it is not clear to me which is the email address that is currently the preferred one to use for general contact.

    Finally, a humble request: Would you, perhaps, be willing to share one or more vintage photos of yourself from one or more points between that when the child photo I referenced above was taken and the photo from your college days that appears further down?
    (I actually had made this request in the recent thread where you mentioned that you had started following school test score statistics at the age of thirteen, but perhaps you missed it. In case you did see my earlier request but deliberately declined, for whatever reason, to respond, I apologize for repeating it here.)

    I realize that this may seem an odd request but I am simply fascinated with boys (seeing in them the boy I once I was, as well as the boy I could only dream of being, and the boy I wish I could once again be) and rarely pass on an opportunity to add to my collection of photos and drawings of said delightful creatures. I am all too aware of the unsavory suspicions that such an interest inevitably arouses in people but I simply refuse to allow myself to be robbed, by the odious associations created by depraved predators and sodomites, of the wholesome joy of celebrating boys. My motto: Who couldn’t be charmed by the magic of boys? Who could bugger, sodomize, or otherwise desecrate, defile or corrupt such precious beings?

    The first two were the same person. It is possible to defeat Ron’s system for restricting the use of multiple pseudonyms. The satirical poster who starred out using only Tiny Duck is now using multiples.
    This imbecile thinks he can Astro-turf a trend by pretending to be multiple people. However, I suppose he is at least providing some alternative opinions. While people on the Right are happy to go to Left sites in large numbers and post comments until they get banned, the Left avoids Right sites like the plague. They are probably afraid of having their brain cells contaminated, or of their fellow moonbats finding out that they even look at sites like this one.

    Hubris much? You didn't even confidently predict Trump's election, which I would consider the bare minimum for having figured out yada yada.

    How much do we have to donate to get you to tell us?

    Me, I figure it it is marginally deniable anti-semitic rabble rousing and old dude obsession with female journalists and their hair. There's more, of course, but it is a template.

    Oh, did I figure out the basic logic of iSteve?

    The opioid manufacturers aren't the only ones making bank off of bitter clingers.

    You should be ashamed of yourself, you could be doing so much more in life with what Providence has granted you, but you just snark, year after year for paypal (or whoever tolerates you these days) pocket change.

    Disappointing, but I'm still hoping you are going to start aiming high some day.

    Why do women think this type of moral posturing is effective bantz? You have nothing insightful to say, my dear, so stick with commenting in MSNBC youtube video comment sections.

    Steve,

    I'm going to tell you the same thing I tell any bum with his hand out: Get a job.

    I find begging like this distasteful in the extreme. And it's not just distasteful, it's beneath you. Or at least, I thought it was- clearly it isn't.

    The next time you write about welfare, or beggars on the street, or some group that would rather ask for money than work; I'm going to remind you of your thrice yearly beg-a-thon.

    You should be ashamed of yourself.

    Let's not jump to conclusions regarding the recent mass (4 person) shooting at the Pensacola Air Station --
    aaaaaaand it's a Muslim.
    You know, the media hasn't gotten around to mentioning this for some reason, but Muslims have this pre-medieval honor code thing, requiring them to become violent if certain thresholds are crossed.

    2019-2001=18 years later. And we’re still importing Saudi aviation students.

    LOL @ the first two comments! I'm not sure whether they are complete trolls or not but I suspect that they are at least not completely earnest.

    Mr. Sailer:

    At the risk of appearing immodest or blatantly ingratiating, I will publicly declare here that I contributed a modest sum last month* as a token of my appreciation for your efforts and dedication and, especially, the often exceptional principle, discretion, fairness, balance, indulgence and even forbearance that I have found you to demonstrate in your moderation of comments. I find it particularly commendable that you allow comments that are critical of you (and have seen you state that actually welcome criticism)-- even ones that are immoderately worded.

    While I would not claim to be above virtue-signaling, I do hope that this post of mine will inspire and encourage others who are blessed with the means to contribute, to do so, in an amount proportionate to their means and the value they place on your work and efforts. I know that before I finally took the plunge and contributed, seeing someone else mention that he had done so, would always evoke a feeling of shame in me.
    (*I would have given more and earlier but my financial obligations are many and my means limited.)

    That you are relegated to relative obscurity** and "panhandling" while your Respectable*** counterparts enjoy lucrative careers serving as little more than shills for the Woke Capital/ Globo-Homo / Military-Industrial Complex / Coalition of the Fringes ruling conglomerate, is yet another indication of how inverted the world we inhabit is.

    (**And, forgive me, to having to share space with and appear alongside some of the other writers hosted here at Unz Review.)
    (***Note the capitalization; I do not use the word unironically).

    I extend my best wishes for the holiday season and the coming year to you and to the others who read and comment on this blog-- at least all those who would not wish me harm and who would allow me to continue to enjoy the extraordinary kindness that this country, the United States of America, has shown me, my family, and my people.

    A question: In the right-hand-column that appears on each page of your blog, just below the photo of you as a young lad, you provide an AOL email address for general contact. You then go on, however (in the detailed information on payment options) to characterize that same email address as "ancient". And recently, I saw a comment you had posted in which you replied to someone who had offered to send you a file by requesting that he send it to a Gmail address that you provided. So, it is not clear to me which is the email address that is currently the preferred one to use for general contact.

    Finally, a humble request: Would you, perhaps, be willing to share one or more vintage photos of yourself from one or more points between that when the child photo I referenced above was taken and the photo from your college days that appears further down?
    (I actually had made this request in the recent thread where you mentioned that you had started following school test score statistics at the age of thirteen, but perhaps you missed it. In case you did see my earlier request but deliberately declined, for whatever reason, to respond, I apologize for repeating it here.)

    I realize that this may seem an odd request but I am simply fascinated with boys (seeing in them the boy I once I was, as well as the boy I could only dream of being, and the boy I wish I could once again be) and rarely pass on an opportunity to add to my collection of photos and drawings of said delightful creatures. I am all too aware of the unsavory suspicions that such an interest inevitably arouses in people but I simply refuse to allow myself to be robbed, by the odious associations created by depraved predators and sodomites, of the wholesome joy of celebrating boys. My motto: Who couldn't be charmed by the magic of boys? Who could bugger, sodomize, or otherwise desecrate, defile or corrupt such precious beings?

    The first two were the same person. It is possible to defeat Ron’s system for restricting the use of multiple pseudonyms. The satirical poster who starred out using only Tiny Duck is now using multiples.
    This imbecile thinks he can Astro-turf a trend by pretending to be multiple people. However, I suppose he is at least providing some alternative opinions. While people on the Right are happy to go to Left sites in large numbers and post comments until they get banned, the Left avoids Right sites like the plague. They are probably afraid of having their brain cells contaminated, or of their fellow moonbats finding out that they even look at sites like this one.

    No offense, but if Steve instituted a paywall, then folks like you would be the first to complain.

    There's a difference between a drunken bum who hangs out on a sidewalk accosting random strangers for money and a talented street performer who does his thing while occasionally subtly motioning toward the cup on the ground. (And Steve is far more valuable than the latter.)

    Steve has had "real jobs" throughout his life. But it turns out that his core competency - Noticing Unpleasant Truths, and writing about them - has made him unemployable in the clown world of journalism.

    Would we be better off if Steve went back to market research and put his prodigious intellect to work figuring out new and exciting ways to advertise toilet paper? As Steve Jobs said to John Sculley, "Do you want to sell soda pop, or do you want to change the world?"

    If you find value in Steve's writing - and he is a prolific blogger who maintains a consistently high level of quality - then why not grant him a token of your appreciation? If not, then just ignore this post. Are you so easily triggered that you can't handle an occasional solicitation?

    As an aside, I might note that while you are hiding behind the security blanket of a pseudonym (as am I), Steve posts everything under his real name.

    If he instituted a paywall we would be rid of nonsensical trolls like the guy you responded to.

    I’d gladly pay. I donate more than that on the justification that it is essentially a magazine subscription, of which I have none but used to have several.

    On the other hand, instituting a paywall would limit his audience a bit and probably make it tougher for new people to find. That would be a big downside.

    Me, I figure it it is marginally deniable anti-semitic rabble rousing and old dude obsession with female journalists and their hair. There's more, of course, but it is a template.

    Oh, did I figure out the basic logic of iSteve?

    The opioid manufacturers aren't the only ones making bank off of bitter clingers.

    You should be ashamed of yourself, you could be doing so much more in life with what Providence has granted you, but you just snark, year after year for paypal (or whoever tolerates you these days) pocket change.

    Disappointing, but I'm still hoping you are going to start aiming high some day.

    Steve aims to be the most accurate journalist, not the most accurate fortune teller. Only your Providence knew that Trump would win the election, not even Trump himself knew it.

    Why do you think PayPal-shaming or whatever it is that you’re doing will make you leftists look more sympathetic? After all the left is *supposed* to be on the side of the guy who fundraises from the fabled “small donors.” So give him a pat on the back, thanks.

    Steve is one of the most efficient sources of information for the busy working person. The succinct, sometimes snarky, and always information dense vignettes on this blog are always a welcome source of news even if the news itself is not welcome. Among other things this is after all, by far the most accurate source of reporting on human intelligence. True, cuz peer-reviewed scientific research says it is.
