Dear friends,

First, I want to begin this news update with an un-official pre-announcement: it appears that the Saker Blog community might welcome a new Language Team in our community, and a big language at that!  Since this is neither final nor official, I don’t want to announce this yet, but I cannot resist giving you a little head-up about this.

Second, I have seen the prototype of the new WordPress based blog, and it looks very good.  Here is what one of the two IT specialists preparing the new blog emailed me two days ago:” I am hoping to have this thing ready this week, and hopefully ready to go to the live next week… then we can do the dual post phase like we talked about, and I am hoping it is fully functional and live by Oct 1 or sooner.”  There will be kinks and various issues needing fixing, so for at least a month I will be double-posting here, the this blogger platform, and on the new blog.  There will be plenty of time for everybody to adapt.

Third, I want to thank all the people who have sent contributions to support this blog:

To all of you I cannot say anything other than what I said before: that you really help me, not only financially, but also morally, especially at a time when the hate mail is pouring in.  I also want to thank you who simply send me very kind and often very heartfelt emails and letters.  What I feel reading them is that I had grossly underestimated the number of kind and truth-seeking people our there.  I am also regularly amazed at the deep felt anger so many of you feel when the realize how much they have been lied to.  It is, truly, mind-boggling.  I have already mentioned that even the Soviet era Pravda, Trud, or Izvestia were far more honest and lied far less then the modern MSM (take that form a fierce anti-Soviet like I used to be, who was totally against the CPSU rule over Russia).

Sure, our 1% masters and overlords can still enjoy the passive support of the army of zombies they have successfully created over the years, but I also think that they are becoming very concerned about those who took the “red pill” and are simply not buying any of their lies and propaganda.  Besides, one awaken and conscious person is far more effective than thousands of zombies, so this is not about numbers, but about networks of people.

In conclusion I will repeat that I am truly very sorry that I cannot write to every one of you a personal reply.  I physically don’t have the time any more. Right now I am basically working two jobs: one regular one in “meat space” and one here, on this blog.  I the latter in reality takes more time than the “regular” one.  In fact, it takes every free minute I have.  And since you are not sending donations to this blog to have me spend time writing individual thank you notes but to actually work on this blog and the community it is building, I took the decision to thank you by means of a post like today.  But that thank you is no less sincere.  Without your help I simply could not do what I am doing.

My most sincere thanks to you all, kind regards,

The Saker
