Terminated by PayPal. Also a New Mailbox

Well, it finally happened. I never understood why it took so long, but PayPal has finally bounced TOO as part of the campaign against the Alt Right and truth-telling generally, presumably pressured by the usual suspects. The PayPal buttons have been taken off the donations page, and recurring donations will not go through.

We are trying to figure out what to do next (suggestions appreciated), but in the meantime your continued support is very important. Right now the only way to donate is to send a check or money order to our new mailbox:

The Occidental Observer
1750 Delta Waters Rd Suite 102, #374
Medford, OR 97504


Donors who had a recurring donation via check distribution companies need to change the address, as the old mailbox in California will no longer be working.

Thanks for all the support we have received. This will definitely not shut us down.

Fair Use Disclaimer

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

Under the 'fair use' rule of copyright law, an author may make limited use of another author's work without asking permission. Fair use is based on the belief that the public is entitled to freely use portions of copyrighted materials for purposes of commentary and criticism. The fair use privilege is perhaps the most significant limitation on a copyright owner's exclusive rights.

Fair use as described at 17 U.S.C. Section 107:

"Notwithstanding the provisions of section 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phono-records or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright.

In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include:

  • (1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for or nonprofit educational purposes,
  • (2) the nature of the copyrighted work,
  • (3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole, and
  • (4) the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work."
