The Counter-Currents Newsletter, May 2020

1,552 words

Dear Friends of Counter-Currents,

Jared Taylor’s American Renaissance Conferences are wonderful opportunities for education and networking. I always look forward to meeting old friends and making new ones at AmRen. The 2020 American Renaissance Conference was supposed to have happened this past weekend. I planned to be there and timed the launch of my new book White Identity Politics to coincide with it. Two weeks later, I was planning to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Counter-Currents going online with a big party in New York City.

But none of us anticipated the Globalvirus and the economic and political chaos that followed. AmRen was canceled. The anniversary party was canceled. And I have decided to postpone the release of White Identity Politics to the fall. I would like it to coincide with the Scandza Forum debate between Jared Taylor and E. Michel Jones, which also had to be postponed because of the pandemic. The new date has not yet been determined.

White Identity Politics is the sequel to my path-breaking book The White Nationalist Manifesto. Like the Manifesto, it is a slender volume, written in a highly accessible style in order to maximize its readership and impact.

White Identity Politics is not just an intellectual contribution to our cause, it is also an opportunity for you to contribute to my work through a number of patronage options. Please follow this link to learn more about White Identity Politics and place your pre-order today!

1. Our Webzine and Traffic

May was a very strong month in terms of traffic, with more than 240,000 unique visitors. But this is a significant drop from April. I noticed the change early in May. It is entirely due to Google manipulating its search engine algorithms to bury our results. When Counter-Currents rolls out our new website next month, rest assured that the Google search function will be gone. I hope all of our readers will stop using Google as well.

This latest tech malarkey comes on the heels of Counter-Currents being de-platformed yet again from a payment processor back in March. We remain without an easy way of taking credit card donations. This is a serious economic blow. There is information on how you can help below.

In May, we added 84 pieces to our webzine, including four podcasts. Our Top 20 articles and full stats are below.

2. Top 20 Pieces (with Number of Reads): 

  1. Greg Johnson, “Irreconcilable Differences: The Case for Racial Divorce,” 15,364

5. How You Can Help Counter-Currents

Counter-Currents, like most promoters of dissident ideas, depends upon the generosity of our donors. In 2019, around 500 donors made it possible for nearly two million unique visitors to find their way to Counter-Currents. If you want to join the people who make Counter-Currents possible — or renew your support — there are several ways you can help out.

Credit Cards

In 2019, Counter-Currents was de-platformed from five credit card processors. We applied to a couple of other processors but were turned down. In the process of applying, we discovered that Counter-Currents has been put on the so-called MATCH list, a credit card industry blacklist reserved for vendors with high rates of chargebacks and fraudulent transactions. This is completely inapplicable to Counter-Currents. Thus our placement on this list is simply a lie — a financially damaging lie — that is obviously political in motivation.

In March of 2020 we again lost a credit card processor. We are looking for new ones and will keep you informed.

Entropy

Currently the only way you can donate via credit card is through Entropy. Just go to our Entropy page and select “send paid chat.” Entropy allows you to donate any amount from $3 and up. If you include a comment or question, it will be read and discussed in the next episode of Counter-Currents Radio, which airs every Friday.

Money Transfers

If your bank does free money transfers to other banks in the US, please contact me at [email protected].

Gift Cards

Gift cards are a useful way to make donations. Gift cards are available with all the major credit cards as well as from major retailers. You can either send gift cards as donations (either electronically or through the mail) or you can use them to make donations. Simply buy a prepaid credit card and click here to use it. If you can find a place that sells gift cards for cash, they are as anonymous as sending cash and much safer.

Checks and Money Orders

Sometimes the old ways are best. The least “de-platformable” way to send donations to Counter-Currents is to put a check or money order in the mail. Simply print and complete the Word or PDF donation form and mail it to:

Counter-Currents Publishing, Ltd.
P.O. Box 22638
San Francisco, CA 94122
USA
[email protected]

Thank you, Boomers, for keeping your checkbooks, envelopes, and stamps. There are youngsters reading this site who have never written a check or put a letter in the mail.

Bill Payment Services

If you wish to make monthly donations by mail, see if your bank has a bill payment service. Then all you need to do is set up a monthly check to be dispatched by mail to our PO box. This check can be made out to Counter-Currents or to Greg Johnson. After the initial bother of setting it up, you never have to think about it again.

Crypto-Currencies

In addition to old-fashioned paper donations, those new-fangled crypto-currencies are a good way to circumvent censorious credit card corporations.

  • Click here to go to our crypto donation page.
  • Click here for a basic primer on how to get started using crypto. Do not, however, use COINBASE. COINBASE will not allow you to send money to Counter-Currents. (Yes, it is that bad.)

The Counter-Currents Foundation

Note: Donations to Counter-Currents Publishing are not tax deductible. We do, however, have a 501c3 tax-exempt educational corporation called The Counter-Currents Foundation. If you want to make a tax-deductible gift, please email me at [email protected]. You can send donations by mail to:

The Counter-Currents Foundation
P.O. Box 22638
San Francisco, CA 94122
USA

Remember Us in Your Will

Finally, we would like to broach a very delicate topic: your will. If you are planning your estate, please think about how you can continue helping the cause even after you are gone. The essay Majority Estate Planning” contains many helpful suggestions.

Remember: those who fight for the Golden Age live in it today.

Thank you again for your loyal readership and generous support.

    ” I hope all of our readers will stop using Google as well.”

    What do you recommend, Greg?

      I use DuckDuckGo. Not sure what Greg uses.

      Brave browser is an excellent alternative to Google as is Duck Duck Go, Also I do not think Bing bury results either at least as far as I can tell.

    Be careful getting your POBox mail. San Francisco seems to be antifa central right now. These sadists – so much better organized than we rightists (why? why?) – are probably looking for CC editors. STAY SAFE!

    Thanks for posting the numbers, and I am hoping for a huge rise in June 2020 due to the horrid protests which at least let us know clearly who our enemies are in this country, and should be a wake-up for a lot of people, though I suppose many millions are still sleepwalking with the ‘Equality”. “Diversity” and “Multiculturalism” pabulum. The filming of the looters was especially helpful — anyone who cannot see the truth from them is especially in denial.

    The list of the top 20 countries also lets us know there is a great cohesion among ourselves, still in place as well.

    The rioters made me feel hopeless and I certainly ‘teared-up’ many times just watching. Counter-Currents, respectfully, gives me hope and courage to carry on.

    “It is entirely due to Google manipulating its search engine algorithms to bury our results. When Counter-Currents rolls out our new website next month, rest assured that the Google search function will be gone. I hope all of our readers will stop using Google as well.”

    I’ve been thoroughly disgusted with google for some time, glad to hear about the website changes!

    Since I read in your post above about Google manipulating its search engine algorithms to bury results, and your closing statement: “I hope all of our readers will stop using Google as well”, I realized I owned a few Google stock shares in my retirement account. So, I sold them and made a small profit this morning of about $92, which I will now spend here to buy 5 books that I don’t have yet.

    Ya see, Google — “Goes around, comes around”. Be careful who you censor!

      Bravo! I salute your moral courage, mettle, and gumption. Please take good care and stay safe in this tumultuous time. Every awakened man and woman in the White nationalist circles is a precious and cherishable asset.

        “Every awakened man and woman in the White Nationalist circles is a precious and cherished asset.”

        Thank you for your kind comments, Comtaose, and I will copy that last sentence onto a card to place on my library shelf, and read every time I get upset watching these ‘protests’, or thinking I am separated from everyone and don’t matter. And this goes for everyone! We’re united in this struggle and each is a ‘valuable asset’.
