This appeal was made by our friend The Saker:
I was putting off this post over and over again, but now I really have no other option than to finally post it. Here is the deal: I need your help.
First, it has been many, many months (over 6 for sure) since I have made a appeal for donations and while a few good hearts have continued to send in support (thanks guys!!), the donations have slowed down to a trickle. So, please, help me focus on my work for this blog which I am still keeping 100% ad-free, with no paywall limiting access to anything and support my work by donating generously. I always give everything away for free, but I also count on your support which is vital to keep this blog running. Please help me in my struggle against the Empire’s propaganda machine!
Ask yourself two simple questions: how much is the information I provide on this blog worth to you?
I get well over a million visitors each month and my articles are re-printed in many top-visibility sources. How important is it to you to keep this blog running?
The other thing I need help with is finding a lawyer willing to be my ‘in house council’ pro bono. Until recently, I had a lawyer acting in that capacity for me: he helped me set up my LLC and he gave me advise on accounting, taxation, copyright, domain names, opening a bank account, etc. Alas, he had to resign from this position due to personal difficulties so now I am left alone, which is pretty bad because I am a financial/legal moron and I need help with the very simplest of issues.
So, if you are a lawyer in the USA, or if you know a lawyer willing to help me on his/her free time, please contact me at email@example.com. That would be a *huge* help for me, really!
So far, every time I have asked for the help of the community the miracle happened and the needed help materialized. Please make that miracle happen again!
Many thanks in advance and kind regards,
