Dear friends,

The tsunami of emails expressing their support and understanding has not abated at all!  Many also express sadness, which I very much share.  For me the blog was my “baby” which I “raised” for 16 years, and now this child of mine will go away.  Of course I feel sad, even if I am now 100% sure that this was the right decision.

This being said, I really hope that we all can stay in touch. So I will, once more, list all the options I can think of now.

Right now I see three options which I can offer to you all:

  1. I will keep the emails [email protected] and [email protected] and I will check them at least once every few days or so.  Feel free to contact me for any reason after March 1st.
  2. To my absolute amazement, after asking my Patreon supporters to cancel their pledges (which, quite reasonably, many did), some readers actually signed-up (when I saw that, my jaw dropped and I could not believe my eyes!).  Well, quite obviously, the very least I can do is to remain available on Patreon for questions and other forms of interaction (video Q&As maybe?) on Patreon at until the very last patron cancels his/her pledge.  And, frankly, I cannot even begin express my gratitude to those who so kindly extended their help to me and my family in spite of me having to close the blog.
  3. There is the Saker telegram channel ( which you can join and that, unlike Patreon, will not cost you a penny!  I do not personally run that channel (and that is very good, as I don’t have the energy for that right now), but I trust the person who does and we can stay in touch there too!

Finally, if somebody wants to create some other option, say a Discord channel, or any other possible “meeting place” – please let me know and I will announce it here.

Next, on the issue of archiving the blog.

My two awesome IT gurus are working on various options and testing various things.  I will announce here what we have come up with when we have more than plans.  Please stay tuned.

And, no, I have not forgotten about the Q&A :-)  I am still getting questions.  I am now thinking of recording it next week.

Love and thanks to all


PS: one more thing, I have now added a PDF version (made by a friend) of my “Christian Vignettes” to the subdirectory you can download all my books from (for free, obviously!):

The Essential Saker IV: Messianic Narcissism's Agony by a Thousand Cuts
The Essential Saker III: Chronicling The Tragedy, Farce And Collapse of the Empire in the Era of Mr MAGA
