The Counter-Currents Newsletter, July 2020 What Are Trump’s Chances?Greg Johnson
Dear Friends of Counter-Currents,
People keep asking me for my predictions for the 2020 US Presidential elections. It is really impossible to say.
As the incumbent, Donald Trump, would normally enjoy the advantage, but incumbency has been nullified by two serious disadvantages:
- Trump’s margin of victory was narrow, and demographics is destiny. Thus there may simply not be enough sensible white people left to re-elect Trump.
- Trump ran as a populist but governed as a Republican. For the most part, he failed to keep his promises to the people who elected him. Instead of securing the votes of the white working class, he wasted the last four years on sickening displays of pandering to Jews, blacks, mestizos — really, anyone but whites.
Beyond that, in 2020, Trump has been beset by a convergence of catastrophes:
- The second deadliest pandemic in US history
- A devastating recession
- Widespread anti-white pogroms led by blacks and communists
- His own moral collapse, as well as the moral collapse of the Republican Party, in the face of this insurrection.
This election is the Democrats’ to lose. I have been saying that for years.
But they may just be stupid enough to lose it by running a ticket of the creepy, senile Joe Biden and any of the shortlist of crazed black women he is considering for VP.
In short, given the instability of America today, anything can happen in the next three months. The election could even be postponed or called off entirely. So I simply have no idea who will be the next President of the United States.
But I can say one thing with 100% certainty: no matter who is elected, the other half of the country will regard the results as illegitimate:
- Democrats, because they are spoiled, entitled, sore losers
- Republicans for very good reasons, namely a history of massive Democratic voter fraud, censorship (election meddling) by tech monopolies, and the Democrats’ open strategy of creating a one-party state by promoting race-replacement immigration. Non-white immigration is simply election tampering.
It is becoming increasingly clear that:
- The United States is a failed nation: too diverse to be governable.
- The United States is a failed state: its laws are openly defied on its own territory.
- The US is governed by a failed President, who has allowed lawlessness to run rampant for more than two months. The first BLM riot was the rioters’ fault. Every subsequent riot is Trump’s fault.
White Nationalists have been warning America about these problems for years. It all could have been avoided. Thus it gives me no pleasure to be so damned right, given the suffering ahead.
The good news, though, is that 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, not just in spite of the hard times, but because of them.
1. Our Webzine and Traffic
July was a very strong month in terms of traffic, with more than 300,000 unique visitors. This is good news. In early May, I noticed that Google was 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 July, we added 90 pieces to our webzine, including four 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.

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.
