Summary of Saker’s ‘search news feeds’ feature

Almost a year ago I added an additional ‘news’ page on our website. The ‘search news feeds’ feature on this page has been only used by the most adventuresome of our readers, as it was never announced and only found by exploration. This page is accessed by the ‘NON MSM NEWS’ button on the home page. On this page is an RSS feature that allows readers to review the news

Scott Humor’s new book Hell and Israel: Après Lavrov le Déluge

The opinions of reviewers who read the book varies from ‘Wow, that’s an extremely energizing book!” to “Thank you very much for this. A brilliant satirical work. Hope it gets exposure.” It’s hard to find a great political satire book, it’s even harder to come across of a satirical work about a war.  The Good Soldier Švejk by Jaroslav Hašek, comes to mind, and Catch–22 by Joseph Heller, and not

UK Saker Community members: Sheikh Imran Hosein will be lecturing in the UK in Aug/Sept!

Dear friends, My dear friend Sheikh Imran Hosein will be lecturing in various cities across the UK (including Scotland!) in August and September.  If at all possible, I highly recommend that you do you best to try to attend one of his lectures and, if given the opportunity, speak with him.  This is especially true if you consider yourself a Christian and, even more so, an Orthodox Christian.  Don’t miss

About the Alex Jones & Infowars ban by US corporate giants

Let me immediately begin that I have really no use for Alex Jones or for Inforwars.  I do recognize the very important and positive role they played in the 9/11 Truth movement, but the rest of their agenda and ideology is really not my cup of tea, to put it very mildly.  Their constant hysteria about Islam and China is particularly stupid and, worse, misleading (Israel, for some reason, totally

Appeal from South Front (PLEASE HELP THEM!!)

Dear friends, Despite an outstanding complexity of the work, and only thanks to your support, SF has released the announced long-awaited documentary on the Houthis and the conflict in Yemen. Let us say thank you and to apologize for all our readers and subscribers for their pations and the delay with the production of the Houthis documentary. Unfortunately, last month, the project found itself in a complicated situation facing unexpected

Saker on a short road trip

Dear friends, I am going to be on the road for 10 days or so, visiting a sick relative of mine and seeing some good friends.  I should have Internet, at least in the evenings, but please be patient with me if I am slow in answering emails.  I will be updating the blog as best I can, mostly in the evenings.   Hopefully, my short trip will therefore have little,

Saker Community Translations and new collaboration launched!

Dear friends, Excellent news!  First, I am happy to announce the official launch of the Saker Community Translations YouTube channel which you can find here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgh-2Oe7nK5lp_H3f0SQ89Q This project has been launched by three volunteers of the Saker Community and its main goal is to regularly post the insightful political commentaries of Ruslan Ostashko, one of the most insightful Russian analysts whose videos have been regularly translated and subtitled on this

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. That time slot would be best suited for somebody in Russia, Asia or Australia. If you can help, please email our Head of Moderation, Herb, at vineyard.mod_hs@unseen.is Thanks a lot!! Hugs and cheers,

“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
