A few personal notes from the Saker

Dear friends, After giving it a lot of thought, I have had to take the very painful decision to cancel my trip to Russia.  There are several causes which contributed to this decision, but the main one is my health and current inability to embark upon such a trip.  Also, the planned dates (July) were probably not the best ones possible, so this trip is probably going to have to

I will be out of reach just for a few days for a short but much needed break

Dear friends, I just wanted to let you know that I will be on the road for a few days and totally out of reach.  Specifically, I will be completely disconnected from the Internet from Saturday April 28th until Wednesday May 2nd. Please do not email me during these days. I will be meeting a friend in a remote location and I badly need this time off so, at the

Change of Saker snail mail address

Dear friends, For a few years I used a PO Box in Edgewater, Florida but after having an almost infinite amount of frustrating problems with the gross incompetence of the USPS, I have decided to ditch it.  This is the address I used in the past: The Saker PO Box 711 Edgewater Florida 32132-0711 USA PLEASE DO NOT USE IT ANYMORE!!! Instead, please send all snail mail to me at

The War on the People-Silencing The Truth

source: https://christopher-black.com/the-war-on-the-people-silencing-the-truth/ New Eastern Outlook has been subjected to a series of DDOS attacks, denial of service attacks,  for the past week and are attempting to restore their site. They issued a statement today, March 25th, but service is still being interrupted and so people may not be able to see it so I have decided to publish it here. People should be spreading the word on what has happened

EMERGENCY WARNING FROM THE SAKER

Dear friends, I have learned that several anti-Empire websites have been hit by strong and sustained DDoS attacks including Craig Murray (https://www.craigmurray.org.uk/archives/2018/03/massive-attack-on-this-blog/) and, apparently, the the Russian journal New Eastern Outlook which was knocked off line by a big hacking attack and is still down Saturday. They have been attacked multiple times the past 2 months and then a final attack succeeded in shutting them down. They are trying to

Moderators needed (friends in Russia and Australia, please read this!)

Dear friends, The Saker blog needs a moderator for Sat/Sun from 10am-2pm (EST) the current person covering this time slot has a big professional commitment coming on and will be unable to help us in the future.

“Shortener” volunteer sought for a Saker video report with South Front (SOLVED)

Dear friends, My friends at South Front want to make a high quality video on the basis of this article of mine: https://thesaker.is/the-end-of-the-wars-on-the-cheap-for-the-united-states/ However, the current total length of this article is too long for a script of that video.   I simply don’t have the material time to do the script so what I need is a “shortener”, i.e. a person who would be willing to sit down and “squeeze”

About the importance of moderation (a “thank you!!” to the mods)

There was an interesting comment posted recently on the Unz Review under one of my recent articles.  It said the following: Kiza’s comment mirrors something I did indeed observe: every time I post something at the Unz Review the exact same group of commentators immediately rush to post an X number of negative comments and the real conversation begins only further below. Unlike Kiza, I am not sure that this

Message to the Saker Community about Great October Socialist Revolution

Dear friends, I have been getting a lot of requests to express my views about the event which was officially known as the “Great October Socialist Revolution”.  All over the Internet, various authors are pitching in, offering their views and insight about this event which changed the world 100 years ago.  After pondering this issue I have decided to refrain from joining into this discussion and I will limit myself

The Duran has been in existence for well over a year… In that time, called these major events right, where most were dead wrong: The Brexit vote Donald Trump’s victory Russian victory in the Syrian war Recovery of the Russian economy despite the oil price crash and the sanctions All things the MSM and other publications said would NEVER happen, and we did it with a fraction of the resources. Imagine what we

Changes to the Saker blog layout and organization

Dear friends, This morning you might have noticed that there are a few changes on the blog’s layout.  Let me explain what we have done so far. First, to make it easier for visitors to get to what I personally wrote, we have re-designed the former “Analyses” section into “Saker Analyses”.  From now on, everything I write will be posted in this section which will only include my own analyses. 

Dear Saker Community – Request for a very special Volunteer

  Let me first explain what we are doing:  On the community support side of the Saker house, our artist is creating a series of posters or infographics or quick information sheets.  The first one that we are doing is based on the Saker’s Letter to My American Friends, distilling the hard data that The Saker outlined here.   Other infographics may deal with for example geography, or size of
