Moon of Alabama Brecht quote

Please Support Moon of Alabama

Dear reader, your support is essential to keep this site going.

Moon of Alabama provides news and analysis which other media cover late or not at all. It offers original thought and no-nonsense writing on a nearly daily basis. This site is free of charge and free of distracting advertisements. The comments are open and lively. It is the effort of a single person.

While that person lives in slightly better circumstances than Spitzweg's Poor Poet, he is neither rich nor does he indulge in luxuries.


Your continued interest and your feed back keep me going. But I also need to eat and pay rent. There is no other income I can rely on. Thus every donation to this Poor Poet - be it $5, $50 or $500 - is welcome and needed. A recurring contribution or sponsorship would be great.

Transaction costs are smallest when you send cash, a check or make a bank-wire transfer. Send email to MoonofA @ for the necessary details. (They are the same as before.) You can use a credit card or other means when you donate through the PayPal button below (The account is in Euro 1€=$1.12; $1=0.89€).

Thanks you very much!

Bernhard aka b.

Thank you MOA for the astute analysis you provide on a regular basis. I hope my small contribution can help to sustain your work. In the strange and volatile period we are living through it is always comforting for me to read your shrewd, rational analysis on current affairs and I am very much thankful for the time and work that you put in to maintaining this blog.

You deserve my little donation for the work you do man..keep going on.

Donation procedure is too complicated. When I tried to donate via credit card, the system was trying to create a paypal account. I do not want to have a paypal account. I want to keep things simple. I get thousands fake e-mails every year that my paypal account needs attention --- well, I don't have one. More traces on the net create more possibilities for being taken advantage of by criminals.

Not just for this website, but in general, I want to support sites that provide good information and which I read all the time, but it is safer not to do this, because when you do it, my info goes out there and who knows where it ends up. Simple and secure would probably result in more support...

Posted by: NL | Jun 22 2020 9:15 utc | 4

I should add, I am willing to pay extra for security.
Freedom and security ain't free...

Done. Your efforts are much appreciated.

Posted by: Yeah, Right | Jun 22 2020 9:49 utc | 7

I will certainly support MoA, a hugely important and highly appreciated independent voice, even though I must say that I would have liked to see somewhat more critical analysis of the Covid media narrative.

Posted by: A reader | Jun 22 2020 10:25 utc | 8

Done, Thanks for all of your time bring us the truth.

Hi M,

Please let me know any other alternative to donate. I can't open a paypal account in India.


Posted by: Niraj Sawant | Jun 22 2020 13:53 utc | 14

I would love to donate, but it appears that Paypal is necessary and I won't use PayPal

Posted by: George Burns | Jun 22 2020 14:18 utc | 15

I urge everyone to support alternative media I support several including Moon

Posted by: Dennis | Jun 22 2020 14:23 utc | 16

Well b - you banned me - for reasons never explained - so ... no donation this year. Cheers

Posted by: Miss Lacy | Jun 22 2020 15:12 utc | 17

Don't use PayPal either--
PayPal cuts off payments to right-wing extremists

Just another way of gathering info and exploiting the proletariat ----

But good luck on the fund raising

Posted by: Duncan Idaho | Jun 22 2020 15:27 utc | 18

I had attempted to make a monthly donation via my Visa card. Everything went well until the end. I got tangled up in the Paypal underwear. In order to donate, I must provide a Paypal password. I did. Paypal says that I can't use it because .....
Can't we stop Paypal. It's a huge discourager. Godfree Roberts recently started a newsletter for which I pay a set monthly amount. And, with no hassle. His E-mail: [email protected]

I have donated through PayPal but dont know that you got it or not?

Posted by: Sk aziz | Jun 23 2020 3:05 utc | 28

Your analyses are some of the most insightful and relevant that can be found anywhere. I would love to support you but I also refuse to use PayPal, like others here. Please consider creating a Bitcoin wallet.

Still no BTC option......that is rather quaint.

Hallo "b" - I have sent my contribution; MoA is now my preferred source of information. How do you manage to produce the articles of such good quality without a big staff??!! mfG !

You have been amazing recently, including on COVID

Posted by: Shyaku | Jun 24 2020 19:19 utc | 36

Like your stuff but believe overreached on coronavirus censorship.
Looks like may apply to contribution comments as well.
Imagine bottom line will be impacted.

Posted by: Joe | Jun 24 2020 20:25 utc | 37

Thanks for your everything you do to make MoA the go to place to know about the most important issues and for the amazing comments. I will be sending 50.00 by mail.

Donation in the post today.
Many thanks for your great work. Very beneficial for me in discussions with the misinformed.

One wonders what is really going on with this troops 'reduction' in Germany from 35k to 25k, is just a cover for a redeployment to Poland? Is it a case of "Duda where's my War?"

Posted by: Et Tu | Jun 25 2020 11:09 utc | 42

Donation made! Thanks for all of your considerable effort.

Posted by: Ground Control | Jun 25 2020 17:26 utc | 43

Thank you so much, b, for your stellar work!

Posted by: Jeffrey Kaye | Jun 25 2020 17:44 utc | 44

I think the MASK (which you promote so rabidly) manufacturers should sponsor you. I quit your analysis and site because of your stupid covering of PLANDEMIC. Goodbye

re bogdan | Jun 26 2020 1:37 utc | 47

the address has a coupla spaces in it so the bots who scrape blogs cannot inundate our proprietor - remove them & addy will most certainly work

Posted by: A User | Jun 26 2020 8:11 utc | 48

Thank you b for the past year of dedicated research and publishing. Thank you all comrades and foes who post and lend support to maintenance of the bar and heightening of the intellect.

There has been some serious drinking in the past year and now that the solstice has turned there will be another draught brewed to keep the pain away and the speakeasy chatting.

Stay well b and enjoy the Russian gas heating if it ever arrives.

Posted by: uncle tungsten | Jun 26 2020 10:45 utc | 49

I disagree with your and most of your commenters political leaning but holy cow, you have a sharp mind and pen. And what you pull off alone (I hope you are alone and not the best Russian Psy Ops ever lol ) Is astounding. So dont shut up and take my money ;)

MOA is the only media outlet i financially contribute to.

regardless of their political leanings i've recommended MOA to all friends that i suspect have not been propagandised beyond hope.

Though i only began visiting the site less than 2 years ago, it has quickly become a trusted and valuable resource for me...a ruby in a mountain of rocks.
Thank you Bernhard.

Posted by: LeoNemo | Jun 27 2020 20:12 utc | 53

I may be critical from time to time, but I do appreciate the forum, b, and all the interesting things I have learned here over the years.

while I am not giving overt financial support, I do hope you see some value in how we clever primates arrange sounds and words to produce meaning.

here's a poem I just wrote about a Clinton friend who recently turned himself into a stain on the concrete, to which I say GOOD RIDDANCE.

did Steve Bing fling
his flesh suit thing
off the 27th floor?

this Clinton pal
who liked the gals
and knew how to score?

is Steve Bing’s mess
a rorschach test
showing I am nuts?

or do Clinton pals
who like the gals
often get the cut?

Posted by: lizard | Jun 27 2020 23:55 utc | 54

There you go pal!

Posted by: michelb | Jun 28 2020 4:09 utc | 55

I don't agree with a lot you say but we are lucky to have you.

I will donate so we can agree to disagree.

Posted by: leee c | Jun 29 2020 1:48 utc | 56

MoA(you)will always be my #1 go-to site on the internet i love you b.
somehow, someway, on my very first day on the net(thanks to my adolescent boy persuading me to buy him(us) a computer) i stumbled upon billmon/whiskey bar. already massively addicted when you took over and rescued us when he abandoned ship. it totally blows my mind and all expectations how you've carried us thru these long long years. i love you b, you've shaped my perspective, my life, more than my words do justice. just know, we're still here. you're our anchor. i say that knowing i am not alone.

toasting to you on cheap whiskey tonight, please spend my (meager) donation on Lagavulin. yours always❤️
