This year, Counter-Currents is trying to raise $150,000. Since our last update, we have received 48 donations totaling $2,188.33. Because of the remaining money in a matching grant, $615 of that amount has been doubled, for a total of $2,803.33. Thus we have so far received 456 donations totaling $70,126.65. I want to thank everyone, especially the generous donor who gave us the matching grant, for getting us almost halfway to our goal.

Details on how you can help out appear below.

Michael Anton’s “The Case for Trump”

This weekend on The Writers’ Bloc, we will be discussing Michael Anton’s Claremont Review of Books essay “The Case for Trump [4].” Anton is the author of the famous “The Flight 93 Election [5]” arguing for Trump in 2016. Anton also worked briefly in the Trump Administration.

Anton supported Trump’s nationalist and populist policies on trade, immigration, and foreign affairs. He acknowledges that Trump has been largely a disappointment on these issues but notes that Trump faced unprecedented handicaps as president:

I would also add:

But if Trump’s America First positions were correct on trade, immigration, and foreign policy, then the question really comes down to: Who is more likely to advance those positions in the next administration, Donald Trump or senile Joe Biden and his running mate, Brown Hillary?

Obviously, Trump is the better choice. It is a completely predictable argument.

What is really interesting about Anton’s essay is his frank acknowledgment that America has lost all semblance of national unity and is little more than an economic zone. But instead of seeking to rebuild national unity, he suggests that Republicans simply try to hold on to power by offering greater economic opportunity. Anton is aware that tribal politics is dominant among non-whites, but he recommends that Republicans try to hold on to their white base with economic populism while competing with Democrats to pander to non-white tribalism.

In short, the same old Republican losing strategy that has allowed America to decline into a failed state. There’s a lot more to say about Anton’s argument and specific proposals. So join this conversation on the Writers’ Bloc this Saturday.

Credit Cards

Currently, we are unable to take credit card donations except through Entropy. Entropy is a site that collects “paid chat” or “superchat” donations for live streamers. But they can take donations any time.

Just go to our Entropy page [3] and select “send paid chat.” Entropy allows you to donate any amount from $3 and up.

If you want to leave a question or comment, they will be read and discussed on the next Counter-Currents Radio livestream, which air on Sundays noon PST/3pm EST on DLive: https://dlive.tv/Counter-Currents [2]

Money Transfers

If your bank does free money transfers to other banks in the US, please contact [email protected] [6].

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  [7]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

[8]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 [9] or PDF [10] 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.

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 Greg Johnson at [email protected] [13]. 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 [14]” contains many helpful suggestions.

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