The Counter-Currents Newsletter, June 2020Greg Johnson
Dear Friends of Counter-Currents,
In June, Counter-Currents celebrated its tenth anniversary of going online. Since our planned birthday party in New York City was canceled due to the pandemic, we had a three-hour birthday livestream instead, with an amazing list of guests: Kevin MacDonald, Jim Goad, Sam Dickson, Mark Weber, Mark Collett, Ricardo Duchesne, John Morgan, James O’Meara, Travis LeBlanc, Fróði Midjord, Jared George, Morgoth,
Tiina and Junes, F. Roger Devlin, Rich Houck, Nicholas Jeelvy, Fullmoon Ancestry, and
Scott Weisswald. Please give it a listen.
Unfortunately, the celebrations were overshadowed by a convergence of catastrophes:
- The second deadliest pandemic in US history
- A devastating recession
- Widespread anti-white pogroms lead by blacks and communists
- The moral collapse of President Trump and the Republican Party
White Nationalists saw it coming, of course. We warned against the dangers of globalization: hollowing out the US economy and opening our borders to disease carriers. We warned against the deadly combination of black ethnonarcissism and white ethnomasochism, both of them stoked by Jewish ethnic activists who set the tone of culture and education in America.
If you want to destroy a nation, just make it a taboo to say “no” to black people. They’ll take care of the rest.
It gives us no pleasure to say “We told you so.”
We simply have to take advantage of these crises, for more of our people than ever before are now receptive to our message, and we need to increase both our activity and also our commitment and moral intensity if we are to reach them and change their minds. Thus it is important for you to support Counter-Currents, now more than ever.
1. Our Webzine and Traffic
June was a very strong month in terms of traffic, with more than 283,000 unique visitors. But this is a significant drop from March and April. I noticed the change early in May. It is entirely due to Google manipulating its search engine algorithms to bury our results. However, when the riots began in the US, our traffic began to rise again. When people have questions that we can answer, eventually they find their way to us.
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 June, we added 100 pieces to our webzine, including three podcasts. Our Top 20 articles and full stats are below.

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.
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.
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.
If your bank does free money transfers to other banks in the US, please contact me at [email protected].
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
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.
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
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’ve never been able to get that Entropy thing to work. If I sign in, then click “Send paid chat,” it just asks me to sign in again, then click, then sign in over and over. I’ll try to figure something else out.
Have you tried a different webbrowser or just clearing the cache?
I am going to try it on a PC when I get home.
Ok. I tried it with firefox on my PC and still got the same loop effect. I don’t know if it has something to do with logging in with Google or what.
The URL just says…/not-found/countercurrents/no-stream
I might try to get another email provider and log in that way.
Did you place the hyphen between Counter and Currents? Counter-Currents.
I finally got it to work by registering another email. I have no idea what the deal was.
I wonder if the increase in unique visits is in part due to the growing use of VPNs?
I wouldn’t say so. The number of visits/unique visitors fraction kept itself very constant through time. You would expect to have far fewer visits per visitor if some of the latter count the same person using different IPs.
