      Sorry (not really) to step on a "highly-intolerant-to-dissent" leftie's toes ,,, BUT it's not illegal to be stupid … nor should stupid [BUT LEGAL] statements be censored, BUT soundly & immediately debunked to be seen by all.

        No, it's to make people think it's the only place to find the truthful narrative. If you think the name is not marketing to a particular group, you're lieing to yourself.

        I'm not familiar with SPAC's history, but given the merger now with Trump's social media and the massive gathering he will pull in (the investment spike alone speaks volumes), I'm willing to wager.

        As for failure in the whitehouse, if you gauge Trump's first 4 years performance as failure, I'm interested to know how you rate the current regime, with the multiple crisis's within the first 12 months?

          • +3

            @cashews: From what I've heard and read about Trump and his personal life, there are some serious questionable conduct and behaviours that's for sure, I personally don't approve of his behaviour, especially on Twitter, whilst a sitting POTUS, his policies however were beneficial for Americans and the empowerment of America, hence a strong America means a strong Western Civilisation alliance (including Australia), which is critical as the world has to face a hegemonic nation such as China, seeking world dominance.

            Just take a look and compare the US 2019 vs 2021, COVID aside of course, you have inflation, supply chain crisis, oil inflation crisis, Afghanistan debacle, crisis/invasion at the border breaking new records (which might be fueling the COVID crisis?) etc. there is just so many bad things going on now there.

    This will not be a success. Donal Trump seems to be one of the biggest layers in the world. He is delusional. I suspect this network will be full of trash and eventually will fall by the wayside and be shut down sometime after the next election. This is really just an election tool to have in case the big social networks block him for spreading misinformation again - What gs calls alternate facts, which doesn’t even make sense. Donald Trump does not care about regular people. He’s only interested in power and celebrity for himself.

      Either way we need both sides of the media to have the full picture. Sometimes multiple facets on multiple sites. This is just the way things are these days. Before we actually had one platform which was quite open. For example, when I was younger there was was child pornography rampant on Neopets and Facebook.

        I'd assume it was downranked extensively to stop the virality (eg. if you search for "Lets Go Brandon" the theme song doesn't come up despite it having the most views and intent for someone searching) but I don't think it was removed at any point.

    So much "truth" despite the fact none of the 'rigged election' claims have gone anywhere in court, even though Trump rammed through the most federal judges & SCOTUS appointments in a long time. If there was any "truth" to these claims, wouldn't Trump appointed judges have said so? Instead: Trump lawyers getting sanctioned for bringing up spurious lawsuits about the election (https://www.nytimes.com/2021/08/25/us/politics/sidney-powell...)

    They're bogus claims from a disgusting narcissist who is happy to tear apart society for his own gain.

    Now, under the guise of 'election integrity' GOP controlled legislatures are gerrymandering the s*%t out of their states to ensure that they will win even if they get less votes (https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/redistricting-2022-maps...). Not to mention installing Trump cult lackeys as election officials, who say they wouldn't have certified the last election despite the absense of any evidence for wide spread fraud (https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/oct/14/michigan-rep...).

    Oh, and if all this isn't disgusting enough, evidence has been coming out for months that Trump had a plan to get the DOJ to say the election was rigged which didn't go ahead purely because dozens of top DOJ officials threatened to resign en-masse (https://www.nytimes.com/2021/07/30/us/politics/trump-justice...).

    Do Trump supporters and more moderate conservatives not see how absolutely f(&*ing insane that is?

    I have no problem having political differences across the aisle with conservatives & other right wing folk. But I draw the line when 80% of registered republican voters now think the last election was stolen becaue Trump and other GOP politicians lied to their constituents about the election being stolen (https://www.forbes.com/sites/alisondurkee/2021/04/05/more-th...). It is an absolutely scary statistic where one of the two major parties is content lying to millions of their followers about the results of fair election.

    No matter what side of the aisle you are on, democracy is sacred and should be preserved, and the GOP have repeatedly shown they are more concerned with winning than maintaining a society where everyone has their own say about a nation through elections.

    As for this social media platform - grifter is gonna grift. Their own T&Cs say that you can be kicked from the platform for criticising the platform lol. The biggest joke of it all is that Trump supporters sincerely believe this man has their best interests at heart. Absolute farce.

      "That’s why the participants want the secret history of the 2020 election told, even though it sounds like a paranoid fever dream–a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information. They were not rigging the election; they were fortifying it. And they believe the public needs to understand the system’s fragility in order to ensure that democracy in America endures."

      or the (pre-election only) FAKE AND DEBUNKED Hunter Biden laptop "Russian disinformation" story
      … on and on it goes …
      and, of course, the rigging of the 2020 presidential election is heavily censored, with an almost reflex, automatic denial upon any mention of it.

        There were talks between Trump's "team" and russia. There were people arrested and charged….. Tell those that served jail time that it was debunked :)

        The Biden kids laptop was the biggest bit of fake news out there and Trump's team just ran with it.

        And the election rigging, rejected

        " with an almost reflex, automatic denial"..

        Nah, pretty sure the judges listened to the cases and then denied them :)

        Election wasn't stolen or rigged (unless you mean by the Republicans and their incredibly obvious attempts to do things like ban perfectly legal mail in ballots), and not one of Trump's unpaid, high qualified or hair dyed lawyers could produce a single piece of evidence in court.

        But sure, it's leftie talking points that are fake news.

                  Unfortunately I didn't note the source.

                  Apparently the judges were having a very loud meeting (lots of disagreement apparently) about the election fraud and whether to hear the cases. So loud that a staffer overheard something like "do you really want mass rioting in the streets if the election is overturned?"

        • "The Biden kids laptop was the biggest bit of fake news out there and Trump's team just ran with it."

          FYI the MSM admitted that the baby Biden laptop was gernuine IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE ELECTION.
          Strange that eh?

          The Hunter Biden laptop is confirmed?! Color us shocked!

          In his new book, “The Bidens: Inside the First Family’s Fifty-Year Rise to Power,” Politico reporter Ben Schreckinger says that evidence points to Hunter Biden’s laptop being legit.

          While we appreciate the support, the truth is The Post’s reports always have been true, and it’s only because the media wants to protect Joe Biden that they keep referring to the laptop as “unsubstantiated.”

          Schreckinger notes that “A person who had independent access to Hunter Biden’s emails” confirms two of the emails The Post published, including one about a potential deal with China with the line “10 held by H for the big guy?” — that is, Joe Biden.

          But Hunter Biden’s former business partner Tony Bobulinski already said those emails were authentic — the media just ignored him.

          Schreckinger adds that emails released by the Swedish government also match emails from the laptop (Hunter had gotten into a kerfuffle when he was staying in a Swedish embassy building). That’s also been reported.

    Trump doesn't need social media. Trump needs the mainstream news to be talking about him. He needs a platform to put out his comments that news outlets will see and report on. This network doesn't need to be a success, it just needs to be a milk crate until he is unbanned from Facebook and Twitter.

    Judging by his other fundraising scams, it would not shock me in the slightest if this was pay to use. Donald knows that his supporters will pay money to feel like they're supporting the cause, often with minimal cajoling.

I, for one, never gave up any freedoms or liberties by rejecting that narcissist. I see those backing Trump as either amoral opportunists, or gullible fools. Take your pick.
