Over the years, many of you have contacted me privately and asked how you could support Liberty Blitzkrieg. Many more of you have donated anonymously and generously via Bitcoin. For this, I’d like to offer a heartfelt thanks.
This website is a labor of love for me, and more than anything else, I believe it to be a reflection of my purpose at this stage in life. It’s not something I see as “work,” but rather a manifestation of my passion and commitment to share a unique perspective on the troubling trends I see around me, and to hopefully help tilt the scales toward a more favorable outcome. At the very least, I see myself as digitally documenting an ongoing crime scene for future generations.
I was never under any illusions as to how difficult this endeavor would be. Challenging the status quo has been extremely taxing (emotionally and financially) throughout history, and at times even physically dangerous. For all the threats facing modern America, I’m still fortunate to live in a country with strong free speech protections and I remain fiercely committed to flexing those First Amendment muscles as often as possible, for as long as people are interested in listening.
In the more than three and a half years since I started writing this blog, I have never launched a donation drive. Likewise, I have never attempted to wall-off any part of the site for subscriptions, and I don’t have any plans to do so in the future. I want everyone who is interested in my material to be able to read it for free. I’m someone blessed with many good things in life, and I am in large part simply trying to give back by doing what I do.
Nevertheless, you should know that blogging about the stuff I blog about does not pay for itself. Many of you use ad blockers, and many more of you will do so in the future. I understand and respect this decision. However, I would ask those of you who have made such a choice to look inward and reflect upon the various blogs out there which add value to you on a daily, weekly or monthly basis and consider donating to all of them.
Personally, I’d love to see a future in which sites such as Liberty Blitzkrieg wouldn’t need to splash third-party ad networks all over their pages because the work is self-funded via reader contributions. This idea may be a total pipe-dream, but it’s a concept I’d like all of you to think about as 2015 draws to a close.
More specifically, I’d like you to reflect upon the value you think Liberty Blitzkrieg has offered you over the years, and donate a representative amount.

Happy New Year!
