Introducing Gab .ai: The People First Social Network

Gab

What is Gab?

gab ɡab/ informal verb

talk, typically at length, about trivial matters.

Gab is a people first social network
-Users can post “Gabs,” which have a 300 character limit
-Users can follow other Gabbers and be followed back
-Users can upvote or downvote Gabs
-Top Gabs are ranked based on these votes
-Gabs are also displayed in a chronological home feed, something that is no longer a default option on other social channels

Anyone who is searching for a space to communicate freely online is welcome on Gab.

We aren’t out to build an echo-chamber, but would rather welcome and embrace open, honest, and authentic discourse on the Internet.

So how is Gab different from X, Y, and Z social networks?

“The only valid censorship of ideas is the right of people not to listen.” — Tommy Smothers

  1. Gab will empower users to self-censor and remove unwanted followers, words, phrases, and topics they don’t want to see in their feeds. Self-censorship is the only true form of individual liberty and free speech online in an era of corporate-sponsored, politically manipulated, and ever-changing algorithms that are driving our social feeds.
  2. Gab will offer a premium ad-free subscription option for those who want to opt-out of ads completely. This is something AdBlockers might not be able to help out with for much longer.
  3. Gab will use artificial intelligence to help surface breaking news and trending gabs, offer on-demand information resources to users through Gab chatbots, and flag NSFW content for review.
  4. Gab will offer users the ability to reward content creators. In other words: we want to help you monetize the content you work hard to create. 
  5. Gab will offer a secure direct message system for private communication.
  6. Gab will give users the ability to create ephemeral Gabs that disappear after a set time period.
  7. Gab will offer a developer-friendly API and pledges to work closely with the Gab.ai developer community from day one.
  8. Gab will open source the “trending” system that we put into place. This way the community can transparently see how Gabs/hashtags are trending, why, and work together to improve the trend system as the community grows.

What do you mean by “People First?”

People who use Gab will have the tools they need to customize their feed experience, monetize their content, and speak freely without fear of being suspended for some arbitrary unknown reason. Third-party Gab.ai developers will have the transparency and respect they deserve from a social network. They will also have pride in the product and community they are contributing to.

Why are we building Gab.ai? 

At Gab, we believe that free speech and free thought are under attack. Political correctness has risen up at the expense of freedom of speech and has become a cancer on discourse and culture. We think that people shouldn’t treat unpleasant, counter-cultural, or conflicting ideas, words, or behaviors as full-scale criminal offenses.

In an ultra-PC culture, major online communication platforms and social networks censor dissenting opinions and ideas. They do so simply because these ideas don’t fit in with their own individual or corporate-driven political agendas and narrative choices.

What has discourse on the Internet become? A monster. A reflection of humanity itself, but a jaded, censored, and one-sided reflection at best.

Don’t believe us?

Perhaps the most famous case of censorship in ancient times is that of Socrates, sentenced to drink poison in 399 BC for his corruption of youth and his acknowledgement of unorthodox divinities. It is fair to assume that Socrates was not the first person to be severely punished for violating the moral and political code of his time.

This ancient view of censorship, as a benevolent task in the best interest of the public, is still upheld in many countries, for example China. This notion was advocated by the rulers of the Soviet Union (USSR), who were responsible for the longest lasting and most extensive censorship era of the 20th Century. (source)

This is true Liberty when free born men
Having to advise the public may speak free,
Which he who can, and will, deserv’s high praise,
Who neither can nor will, may hold his peace;
What can be juster in a State then this?

        With the best managers of his casinos dead, Trump for the first time took responsibility for running the day-to-day operations in Atlantic City. His mercurial and belligerent style made a quick impact—some top executives walked, unwilling to put up with his eccentricities, while Trump booted others. The casinos were struggling so badly that Trump was sweating whether a few big winners might pull him under. He once hovered over a baccarat table at the Plaza, anxiously watching a Tokyo real estate tycoon who had won big at the casino in the past; executives at the casino were humiliated, since Trump was signaling that he was frightened customers might win. (The Japanese tycoon lost that night.) By early 1990, as financial prospects at the casinos worsened, Trump began badmouthing the executives who had died, laying blame on them, although the cause of his problems was the precarious, debt-laden business structure he had built.

        By June 1990, Trump was on the verge of missing a $43 million interest payment to the investors in the Taj’s junk bonds. Facing ruin, he met with his bankers, who had almost no recourse—they had been as reckless as Trump. By lending him billions—with loans for his real estate, his casinos, his airline and other businesses—they could fail if Trump went down. So the banks agreed to lend him tens of millions more in exchange for Trump temporarily ceding control over his multibillion-dollar empire and accepting a budget of $450,000 a month for personal expenditures. In August, New Jersey regulators prepared a report totaling Trump’s debt at $3.4 billion, writing that “a complete financial collapse of the Trump Organization was not out of the question.”

        In September, Trump informed his bankers that he would not be paying the $1.1 million in interest due and asked that they defer $245 million of future loan payments. Once again, the banks could do little but agree. The shuttle business was put up for sale, as was his $29 million yacht, the Trump Princess. (In 1992, Trump defaulted on his debt for the shuttle and turned it over to his creditor banks.)

        By December, Trump was on the verge of missing an interest payment on the debt of Trump Castle, and there was no room left to maneuver with the banks this time. So, just as he had in the past, Trump turned to Dad for help, according to New Jersey state regulatory records. On December 17, 1990, Fred Trump handed a certified check for $3.35 million payable to the Trump Castle to his attorney, Howard Snyder. Snyder traveled to the Castle and opened an account in the name of Fred Trump. The check was deposited into that account and a blackjack dealer paid out $3.35 million to Snyder in gray $5,000 chips. Snyder put the chips in a small case and left; no gambling took place. The next day, a similar “loan” was made—except by wire transfer rather than by check—for an additional $150,000. This surreptitious, and unreported, loan allowed Donald Trump to make that interest payment. (The Castle later settled charges by the Casino Control Commission of violations from this escapade and paid a $65,000 fine.)

        By opening the Taj Mahal, Trump was cannibalizing his other two Atlantic City casinos; their profits plummeted that first year.
        MARKO GEORGIEV/NORTHJERSEY.COM/AP

        It didn’t matter—Trump’s casino empire was doomed. A little more than a year after the opening of the Taj, that casino was in bankruptcy court, and was soon followed there by the Plaza and the Castle. Under the reorganization, Trump turned over half his interest in the businesses in exchange for lower rates of interest, as well as a deferral of payments and an agreement to wait at least five years before pursuing Trump for the personal guarantees he had made on some of the debt. The total debt remained huge, weighing down the reorganized company for years. In 2004, Trump Hotels & Casino Resorts—the new name for Trump’s casino holdings—filed for bankruptcy, and Trump was forced to relinquish his post as chief executive. The name of the company was then changed to Trump Entertainment Resorts; it filed for bankruptcy in 2009, four days after Trump resigned from the board.

        In his books and public statements, Trump holds up this bankruptcy as yet more proof of his business genius; after all, his logic goes, he climbed out of a hole so deep few others could have done it. He even brags now about how deep that hole was. Trump falsely claimed in two of his books that he owed $9.2 billion, rather than the actual number, $3.4 billion, making his recovery seem far more impressive. (When challenged on the misrepresentation during a 2007 deposition, Trump blamed the error on Meredith McIver, a longtime employee who helped write that book. Trump testified that he recognized the mistake shortly after the first book mentioning it was published; he never explained why he allowed it to appear again in the paperback edition and even in his next book. McIver went on to garner some national recognition as a Trump scapegoat—nine years later, when Trump’s wife, Melania, delivered a speech at the Republican National Convention that was partially plagiarized from Michelle Obama, the campaign blamed McIver. But despite all this supposed sloppiness, Trump has never directed his trademark phrase “You’re fired!” at this loyal employee.)

        Rich in Name Only
        Huge corporate failures are the stuff of headlines, but Trump’s mistakes in business have included plenty of small deals as well. In 2008, he defaulted on a $640 million construction loan for Trump International Hotel & Tower in Chicago, and the primary lender, Deutsche Bank, sued him. Trump countersued, howling that the bank had damaged his reputation. In a snarky court reply, Deutsche Bank said, “Trump is no stranger to overdue debt.” (The suit was ultimately resolved, with Deutsche Bank extending the terms of the loan; another lender, Fortress Investment Group, had to suck up losses from its foray into Trump’s Chicago project.)

        Trump has also based huge projects on temporary business trends. For example, for a few years during the George W. Bush administration, wealthy expatriates from around the Middle East flocked to Dubai. In response, Trump launched work on a 62-story luxury hotel and apartment complex on an artificial island shaped like a palm tree. But, as was predictable from the start, there were only so many rich people willing to travel to the United Arab Emirates, so the flood of wealthy foreigners into the country slowed. The Trump Organization was forced to walk away from the project, flushing its investments in it.

        Beginning in 2006, Trump decided to take a new direction and basically cut back on building in favor of selling his name. This led to what might be called his nonsense deals, with Trump slapping his name on everything but the sidewalk, hoping people would buy products just because of his brand.

        Trump hosted a glitzy event in 2006 touting Trump Mortgage, then proclaimed he had nothing to do with managing the firm when it collapsed 18 months later. (Trump tried again, rechristening the failed entity as Trump Financial. It also failed.) That same year, he opened GoTrump.com, an online travel service that never amounted to more than a vanity site; the URL now sends searchers straight to the Trump campaign website. Also in 2006, Trump unveiled Trump Vodka, predicting that the T&T (Trump and Tonic) would become the most requested drink in America (he also marketed it to his friends in Russia, land of some of the world’s greatest vodkas); within a few years, the company closed because of poor sales. In 2007, Trump Steaks arrived. After two months of being primarily available for sale at Sharper Image, that endeavor ended; the head of Sharper Image said barely any of the steaks sold.

        Amusing as those fiascos are for those of us who didn’t lose money on them, the most painful debacles to witness were many involving licensing agreements Trump sold to people in fields related to real estate. There is the now-infamous Trump University, where students who paid hefty fees were supposed to learn how to make fortunes in that industry by being trained by experts handpicked by Trump; many students have sued, saying the enterprise was a scam in which Trump allowed his name to be used but had nothing else to do with it, despite his claims to the contrary in the marketing for the “school.” The litigation has already revealed plenty of evidence that the endeavor was a scam. Particularly damning was the testimony of former employee Ronald Schnackenberg, who recalled being chastised by Trump University officials for failing to push a near-destitute couple into paying $35,000 for classes by using their disability income and a home equity loan.

        Around the country, buyers were led to believe they were purchasing apartments in buildings overseen by Trump, although his only involvement in many cases was getting paid for the use of his brand. For example, in 2009, Trump and a developer named Jorge Pérez unveiled plans for Trump Hollywood, a 40-story oceanfront condominium that they boasted would sell at premium prices and feature such luxuries as Italian cabinetry. But with the entire real estate market imploding, condo buyers were looking for bargains, and sales were minuscule. In 2010, lenders foreclosed on the $355 million project. Even though Trump’s name was listed on the condominium’s website as the developer, he immediately distanced himself from the project, saying he had only licensed his name.

        A similarly sordid tale unfolded for Trump Ocean Resort Baja Mexico, a 525-unit luxury vacation home complex that Trump proclaimed was going to be “very, very special.” His name and image were all over the property, and he even personally appeared in the marketing video discussing how investors would be “following” him if they bought into the building. Scores of buyers ponied up deposits in 2006, but by 2009 the project was still just a hole in the ground. That year, the developers notified condo buyers their $32 million in deposits had been spent, no bank financing could be obtained, and they were walking away from the project. Scores of lawsuits claimed the buyers were deceived into believing Trump was the developer. Trump walked away from the deal, saying that if the condo buyers had any questions, they needed to contact the developer—and that wasn’t him, contrary to what the marketing material implied.

        The same story has played out again and again. In Fort Lauderdale, Florida, people who thought they were buying into a Trump property lost their deposits of at least $100,000, with Trump saying it was not his responsibility because he had only licensed his name.

        Investors in another failed Floridian property, Trump Tower Tampa, put up millions in the project in 2005 believing the building was being constructed by him. Instead, they discovered it was all a sham in 2007, inadvertently from Trump, when he sued the builder for failing to pay his license fees. The investors lost their money, and finally got to hear Trump respond to allegations that he had defrauded them when they sued him. In a deposition, lawyers for the Tampa buyers asked him if he would be responsible for any shoddy construction; Trump responded that he had “no liability” because it was only a name-licensing deal. As for the investors, some of whom surrendered their life savings for what they thought was a chance to live in a Trump property, Trump said they at least dodged the collapse of the real estate market by not buying the apartments earlier.

        “They were better off losing their deposit,” he said.

        So said the man who now proclaims that Americans can trust him, that he cares only about their needs and their country, that he is on the side of the little guy.

            Trump says he can save these workers’ jobs – but they’re not supporting him
            by Shannon Gupta @shannonfgupta
            August 24, 2016: 1:45 PM ET

            Trump’s message isn’t wooing workers losing jobs to Mexico
            It’s a case of unrequited love between Donald Trump and Indiana’s blue collar workers.
            Trump says by getting tough on trade he could save American jobs at the Carrier manufacturing plant in Indianapolis. The company is known for manufacturing air conditioners, but it announced in February it would be moving its furnace operations to Mexico by 2018.
            “Here’s what’s going to happen,” Trump told a crowd in Indianapolis this April. “I’ll get a call from the head of Carrier and he’ll say, ‘Mr. President, we’ve decided to stay in the United States. That’s what’s going to happen — 100%.”
            But the furnace workers aren’t convinced. TJ Bray, a worker at the Carrier plant for 14 years, isn’t buying it, especially given Trump’s own record of making products overseas.
            “We believe he’s opportunistic and says what everybody wants to hear,” Bray told CNNMoney’s Cristina Alesci. “How can you sit there and say, ‘I’m against these trade deals, I’m all this,’ when you make your own things in cheap countries?”
            On a national level, the United Steelworkers’ union have endorsed Hillary Clinton. Chuck Jones, president of the local unit in Indianapolis, said he’d “hold his nose” and probably vote for her as well. He believes many of his members will too.
            “It’s good to hear,” Jones says of Trump’s promises, “but it probably ain’t reality.”

            And they feel the same about Trump’s running mate, Indiana Governor Mike Pence and his response to the Carrier announcement. “As a governor, he did nothing.” Jones said.
            Trump has said he’d renegotiate trade deals like NAFTA and be stricter about enforcing existing rules.
            Around one-third of American manufacturing jobs have been lost since the turn of the century. But trade deals like NAFTA are only part of the cause.
            Technological advances in U.S. manufacturing cost some of those jobs. And it was inevitable that big U.S. multinationals would seek out cheap labor in other countries.
            Plus, NAFTA has supported some American jobs by opening up opportunities in Mexico and Canada.
            Carol Rogers, a business researcher at the University of Indiana, says NAFTA partners Mexico and Canada are two of Indiana’s biggest customers, with exports making up more than 10% of Indiana’s economy.
            Cummins, another manufacturer employing around 10,000 people in Indiana, agrees.
            “I’m not sure Americans understand how much international business is actually an important part of American businesses being successful,” said Jennifer Rumsey, Cummins’ Chief Technical Officer.
            Darren Wildman, the manager at Cummins’ Seymour plant, adds that American consumers benefit from lower prices.
            Many of Carrier’s competitors have also opened factories outside the U.S., including Lennox and Nortek.

            In Stunning Reversal, Trump Suggests He’d ‘Work With’ Immigrants In U.S. Illegally

            August 25, 201611:03 AM ET
            Domenico Montanaro – 2015

            After signaling that his position on immigration is “to be determined” and that it could “soften,” Donald Trump did an amazing thing — what amounts to almost a full about-face on the principal issue that has driven his campaign.

            Trump indicated in a town hall with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, which aired Wednesday night, that he would be in favor of a path to legalization for immigrants in the U.S. illegally.

            “No citizenship,” he said, but added, “Let me go a step further — they’ll pay back-taxes; they have to pay taxes; there’s no amnesty, as such, there’s no amnesty, but we work with them.”

            Donald Trump’s Real Problem Is With White People
            He continued: “Now, everybody agrees we get the bad ones out. But when I go through and I meet thousands and thousands of people on this subject, and I’ve had very strong people come up to me, really great, great people come up to me, and they’ve said, ‘Mr. Trump, I love you, but to take a person who’s been here for 15 or 20 years and throw them and their family out, it’s so tough, Mr. Trump,’ I have it all the time! It’s a very, very hard thing.”

            “Look, we have to follow the laws of our country,” Trump said, before conducting a call-and-response with the audience. “Now, can we be, and I’ll ask the audience. You have somebody who’s terrific who’s been here, right, long time — long court proceeding, long everything in other words to get them out. Can we go through a process or do you think they have to get out?”

            Citing a hypothetical example of an immigrant who came into the country illegally but has been in the country 20 years and has “done a great job, has a job and everything else,” Trump asked:

            “Do we take him and the family … and send ’em out? Or when somebody really has shown — it’s called like the merit system, other than they did break the law in the first place, OK? And that’s a little unfair to people but we’re going to let people come in anyway … So do we tell these people to get out or do we work with them and let them stay in some form?”

            Trump stood by his stance that immigrants in the country illegally who have committed crimes should be “out on day one.”

            “That one is so simple,” he said. “There are some things where you sort of feel bad, this one, we have these killers in this country.”

            Trump said earlier this year that his support was so strong, he could go out on Fifth Avenue and shoot someone, and he wouldn’t lose his base. Well, that’s about to be tested, because if there’s one issue that has animated the Republican rank and file over the past decade, it’s immigration.

            Trump courted hard-liners on immigration in the primary campaign. In his announcement speech, he infuriated Latinos with his comments that Mexican immigrants entering the U.S. illegally were “rapists” bringing in “drugs” and and that “some,” he assumed, “were good people.”

            His original immigration policy was written with the help of Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, an immigration hard-liner.

            Overall, Trump’s supporters are split on how they view immigrants in the country illegally — according to a new survey from Pew Research Center, only 50 percent of Trump supporters agree that “undocumented immigrants currently living in the U.S. are more likely than U.S. citizens to commit serious crimes.” However, most Republicans (79 percent) favor building a wall along the entire border with Mexico, the survey found — a policy Trump stood by on Wednesday night, and one that has been echoed at nearly every Trump rally.

            That may help satisfy some supporters who take a hard line on immigration like Krista Kosier, 51, who told the Washington Post that the wall is “the most important thing” to her.

            “He’s still going to build the wall. He’s still going to get rid of the murderers and rapists and those wreaking havoc in our country,” she said.

            The reversal on deportations, though, comes after Trump called for a “deportation force” during the GOP primary, and went after fellow Republican candidates like Jeb Bush for their their positions.

            “The great majority of people that come to this country come because they have no other choice, they want to come to provide [for] their families. … but the motivation — they’re not all rapists, as you know who said … these are people who are coming to provide for their families and we should show a little more respect for the fact that they’re struggling,” Bush said in a January debate.

            “The weakest person on this stage by far on illegal immigration, is Jeb Bush,” Trump hit back. “They come out of an act of love. Whether you like it or not, he is so weak on illegal immigration, it’s laughable and everybody knows it.”

            And last year, Trump told NBC’s Chuck Todd on Meet the Press that while he’d be open to keeping families together, “they have to go.”

            He was pressed on what would happen in cases where immigrants didn’t have anywhere to return, and Trump repsonded, “we will work with them. They have to go. Chuck, we either have a country, or we don’t have a country.”

            Trump’s new position on legalization is essentially the House Republican position on the 2013 immigration bill. Legalization was the biggest flashpoint between Democrats and Republicans. A bill that included citizenship, but only after a wait for immigrants of more than a decade and needing to pay fines, passed with 68 votes in the Senate that year.

            Democrats argued that a bill that didn’t include citizenship amounted to millions of people being ushered into a second class. By not being citizens, they wouldn’t have the right to vote, for example.

            Arguably, no other issue has animated the GOP base more than immigration over the past decade since former Republican President George W. Bush, a former border governor, pushed for a similar bill in 2007.

            Arizona Sen. John McCain was a principal advocate of that bill — and nearly saw his presidential campaign derailed because of it. He had to go on what amounted to an apology tour because of his support of the legislation. McCain would repeatedly tell New Hampshire voters that he’d gotten the message. McCain eventually won the nomination, but lost to Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential election.

            After Mitt Romney called for “self-deportation,” which sounded tame in comparison to the way Trump has talked about Latinos, Romney only won 27 percent of the Latino vote in 2012. The Republican Party recognized the problem and after the election, a Republican National Committee report recommended moderating on immigration – seen as a threshold issue for many Latinos.

            On a scale of 1 to 10, ten being irate, how mad are you going to be when Trump takes office? I absolutely love your misery.

          • Doc

            -10. Will be going to one of my condominiums in Costa Rica shortly. I recognize that you are stuck in your suburban 4×4 trailer shack.

          • John Sparks

            So the question begs itself, what else will you lie about liar?

          • Doc

            Your question has no merit since you are mentally incapacitated. I am puzzled why you have not been strapped yet?

          • John Sparks

            So you’re at about a 12. How’s my aim? I love your pain and misery.

          • Doc

            Why? Do you have a distinct fondness for 12 year old boys? Post a picture of you nude.

          • John Sparks

            You want so desperately to distract from a Trump Presidency but it just isn’t working out for you is it? Maybe you should move to mehico before he builds the way. He has promised to take the trash out(you) and Make America Great Again so obviously that means you’ve gotta go! Mehico loves unexceptional people so you should fit in just right.

            David Duke Show Celebrates Trump’s Breitbart Hire: We’ve ‘Taken Over the Republican Party!’
            by Tommy Christopher | 2:02 am, August 21st, 2016 VIDEO

            Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump rocked the political media world this week by hiring Breitbart.com honcho Stephen K. Bannon to be his campaign CEO, and while the move has mainstream pundits scratching their heads, its meaning appears to be crystal clear to David Duke and his followers. The former Klan leader and current U.S. Senate candidate closed out the week celebrating the move with Stormfront-friendly radio co-host Don Advo, who got a chuckle from Duke by saying that the Bannon hire means “We’ve taken over,” an assessment that Duke mostly agreed with:

            Don Advo: So, something extonishing has happened. We appear to have taken over the Republican Party.

            David Duke: Well, rank and file, but a lot of those boll weevils are still in those cotton balls, and, uh, the Republican Party may be a European-American populated party, but like a ball of cotton, you can have boll weevils in there that are going to rot it out from the inside.

            The praise from David Duke comes as new campaign manager Kellyanne Conway is trying to present a more “presidential” Donald Trump who is making a show of reaching out to African-American voters.

            Dump Rump

            So, Uh, Trump Isn’t Even on the Ballot in All 50 States
            He has three days to fix this.​

            GETTY AFP
            BY JACK HOLMES
            AUG 25, 2016
            Donald Trump and his running mate, former aspiring cartoonist Mike Pence, have still not signed up to appear on the Minnesota ballot, NBC affiliate KARE11 reports via The Hill. Major party candidates have until Monday—as in this Monday—to get on.

            Smaller parties need 2,000 signatures to appear, according to The Hill, but the two major parties do not, so what the hell is Trump waiting for? Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine are on the Democratic ticket in the North Star State, while Libertarian Gary Johnson, the Green Party’s Jill Stein, and even Independent Never Trumper Evan McMullin are also all set.

            Now, Minnesota has gone blue in every election since 1972, but Trump is also campaigning in other historically blue states, like New York. So this really just seems like a matter of disorganization.

            We thought Trump wanted to set up offices in all 50 states. Maybe the Minnesota team could use some beefing up—preferably over the next three days or so. Does anyone know if you can you register to run for president on Sundays?

            Or maybe this is all just part of Trump’s “rigged election” ploy.

            Costa Rica is the country of choice for retirement for white trash Americans that want to go there only because it’s “cheap”. Unfortunately I’ve been there, it’s a typical third world s hithole.

          • Doc

            “white trash Americans” Your mental basement is a typical hithole. And the fact a large German, Italian, and French population who live there defies you cultural ignorance and stupidity. Perhaps Mississippi or Alabama is suited for you under your klan robe.

          • Vallum Hadriani

            The fact that you like a cesspool like Costa Rica speaks volumes about you. I suppose the cheap liquor and prostitutes would be an attraction for a gutter dweller like you.

          • Doc

            A comment from one of the Swamp of Crazies. Your the whore. Open your legs and have your father grab you cock.

          • Vallum Hadriani

            A telltale sign of a mouth-breathing ignoramus is the inability to understand the proper usage of “your” and “you’re”. Like this: No wonder you love living among the ignorant, you’re one of them.

          • Doc

            Stuff your head up your ass and have your father suck your cock at the same time.

          • Vallum Hadriani

            Just because those are part of your inbred family’s traditions doesn’t make it so for normal folk. Stop projecting.

            Incidentally, you should bring your mom and dad to Costa Rica, you could probably make a few extra dollars a week there by pimping them out. The turistas love seeing deviant sex acts.

          • Doc

            Inbred, look only to yourself, cockroach.

          • Vallum Hadriani

            You are clearly out of your league here, goober. Now off you go with your circus freak family to your banana republic where you can all bask in the sun smelling of cheap suntan lotion and feel like you’re living the dream. Hey, it’s ok, even retards have the right to dream.

          • Doc

            Goober, you are a piece of dried up shit, ejected out your mothers ass.

          • Vallum Hadriani

            If you’re going to try to be insulting at least try to be original and not repeat what someone obviously superior to you just called you, it makes you appear even more ignorant, but originality is obviously note your strong suit.

            Like this: You walk into a cantina in Costa Rica and the waitress asks “what would you like to eat?” And you reply “I’ll just have a beer, I’m not hungry, I just ate my mom’s pussy.”
            See, that’s how an original insult is done, Chucklehead.

          • Doc

            “Superior” in being an asswipe, it came from one of your Nazi compatriots

          • Vallum Hadriani

            You forgot the apostrophe on “mother’s”. No wonder you want to live in a Spanish speaking country.

          • Doc

            You forgot the ‘ of your mother’s pussie

          • Doc

            “Goober,” comment coming from a piece of shit with grand delusions of becoming diarrhea. ‘On a scale of 1 to 10, ten being irate, how mad are you going to be when Madame President Hillary Rodham Clinton takes office. I absolutely love your misery.’

          • Vallum Hadriani

            See, now you’re interested in what someone with intelligence has to say. It’s a step in the right direction. However, you’re obviously incapable of complex thought, and your question requires a complex answer, one which would definitely escape your pea-sized brain. But suffice it to say that whatever the outcome of the election I won’t have to be moving to Costa Rica to make ends meet

          • Doc

            Intelligence on a piece of shit. Have someone shit on you face.

          • Doc

            “Cesspool” excellent descriptor of your brain and the diarrhea it spouts.

          • Doc

            Better in Costa Rica then having to look at the walls of your rectum considered as home.

          • Vallum Hadriani

            It is “than”, not “then”. Your ignorance is shining bright tonight.

          • Doc

            It is wasted on your cockbrain

            Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson says he considers Donald Trump a fascist.

            “It walks like a duck, quacks like a duck,” Johnson told The New York Times on Tuesday. “Where’s the Constitution in all this? He’s saying horrible things.”

            Johnson said his running mate, former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld, was “spot-on” in comparing Trump’s immigration policies to Nazi Germany earlier this year.
            Weld said Trump’s plans to deport illegal immigrants reminds him of Kristallnacht — a Nazi march through Austria and Germany in 1938 that led to the destruction of Jewish properties.

            “I can hear the glass crunching on Kristallnacht in the ghettoes of Warsaw and Vienna when I hear that, honest,” he said.

            “My Kristallnacht analogy does evoke the Nazi period in Germany,” Weld said when asked if Trump is fascist. “And that’s what I’m worried about. A slippery slope.”

            Johnson on Wednesday said party loyalty may prevent Republicans from abandoning Trump, the party’s presidential nominee.

            “To come out in support of anyone other than a member of your own party — I understand how difficult that is,” he said.

            Johnson noted his campaign is still making overtures to anti-Trump Republicans, however, citing former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger as one example.

            He said the Libertarian Party ticket offers at least one trait neither Trump nor Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has: “We’re likable.”

            Machado won Miss Universe while representing Venezuela in 1996, a beauty pageant owned — and formerly judged — by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. After her victory, she claims Trump referred to her as “Miss Piggy” and “Miss Housekeeping.”

        will be a ‘real opportunity’ for white nationalists
        By Peter Holley August 7

        Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks during a campaign rally at Windham High School on Saturday in Windham, N.H. (Evan Vucci/AP)
        The effort to plant the seeds of white nationalism in the political mainstream, where they might blossom into pro-white political coalitions that appeal to a broader swath of Caucasian voters, will not be easy, according to the chairman of the American Nazi Party.

        But Rocky Suhayda thinks there is one political figure who presents a “real opportunity” to lessen the load.

        Who is it? Donald Trump, the Republican nominee for president.

        “Now, if Trump does win, okay, it’s going to be a real opportunity for people like white nationalists, acting intelligently to build upon that, and to go and start — you know how you have the black political caucus and what not in Congress and everything — to start building on something like that,” Suhayda declared on his radio program last month.

        “It doesn’t have to be anti-, like the movement’s been for decades, so much as it has to be pro-white,” he added. “You know what I’m saying? It’s kinda hard to go and call us bigots if we don’t go around and act like a bigot. That’s what the movement should contemplate. All right.”

        [How America’s dying white supremacist movement is seizing on Donald Trump’s appeal]

        Audio from the radio program was posted Saturday by BuzzFeed’s Andrew Kaczynski, who noted that Suhayda has in the past avoided making statements about Trump out of concern that he might harm the businessman’s candidacy. Yet, Kaczynski reported, in an American Nazi Party report from September, the chairman argued that Trump’s rhetoric revealed the secret popularity of the party’s messages.

        “We have a wonderful OPPORTUNITY here folks, that may never come again, at the RIGHT time,” Suhayda wrote, according to BuzzFeed. “Donald Trump’s campaign statements, if nothing else, have SHOWN that ‘our views’ are NOT so ‘unpopular’ as the Political Correctness crowd have told everyone they are!”

        Suhayda is far from the first avowed white supremacist to publicize his support and enthusiasm for Trump.

        Earlier this year, Rachel Pendergraft — the national organizer for the Knights Party, a standard-bearer for the Ku Klux Klan — told The Washington Post that the KKK had begun using Trump’s candidacy as a new conversation starter to recruit followers.

        Memorable moments on the campaign trail with Donald Trump
        View Photos The GOP presidential candidate’s campaign has been far from ordinary. Here are some of the more memorable moments.
        She said this has been discussed on a private, members-only website and in “e-news, stuff that goes out to members.”

        In addition to opening “a door to conversation,” she said, Trump’s candidacy had electrified some members of the movement.

        “They like the overall momentum of his rallies and his campaign,” Pendergraft said. “They like that he’s not willing to back down. He says what he believes, and he stands on that.”

        On his radio show in February, David Duke — a former Ku Klux Klan leader and a current U.S. Senate candidate from Louisiana — encouraged listeners to cast their ballots for Trump, saying that “voting against Donald Trump at this point is really treason to your heritage.”

        This week, Duke told NPR that he is “100 percent behind” Trump’s political agenda.

        “As a United States senator, nobody will be more supportive of his legislative agenda, his Supreme Court agenda, than I will,” Duke said.

        “Donald Trump is not a racist,” he added. “And the truth is — in this country, if you simply defend the heritage of European American people, then you’re automatically a racist.”

        Duke told NPR that polls among Trump supporters in Louisiana showed that “75 to 80 percent” would back his Senate run.

        “You think Trump voters are your voters?” asked Steve Inskeep, the host of NPR’s “Morning Edition.”

        “Well, of course they are!” Duke replied. “Because I represent the ideas of preserving this country and the heritage of this country, and I think Trump represents that as well.”

        Jared Taylor, editor of American Renaissance, a white-nationalist magazine and website based in Northern Virginia, told the New Yorker magazine that Trump may be in denial about the makeup of his base.

        “I’m sure he would repudiate any association with people like me,” Taylor told the magazine, “but his support comes from people who are more like me than he might like to admit.”

        In January, Taylor’s voice could be heard in a robo-call that encouraged Iowa voters to throw their support behind Trump.

        “I urge you to vote for Donald Trump because he is the one candidate who points out that we should accept immigrants who are good for America,” Taylor says on the recording, which was paid for by the American National super PAC. “We don’t need Muslims. We need smart, well-educated white people who will assimilate to our culture. Vote Trump.”

        Taylor told The Post in February that he finds Trump’s rhetoric on immigration appealing, even though he does not particularly care for the candidate’s brash style.

        “I think what he’s done is a very important thing,” Taylor told The Post. “He’s the first candidate in decades to say almost explicitly that immigration should be in the interest of Americans and not just immigrants.”

        He added, “He’s attractive to many Americans who see their country slipping through their fingers. You don’t want to end your days living in an outpost of Haiti or Guatemala, do you?”

        During his radio program last month, Suhayda said he was confident that Trump would emerge victorious in November’s election.

        Trump, he noted, has tapped into the frustrations among a large segment of white voters who have been forgotten.

        “I think it’s gonna surprise the enemy, because I think that they feel that the white working class — especially the male portion of the working class and with him his female counterparts — have basically thrown in the towel,” Suhayda said. “Given up hope of any politician again standing up for their interests.”

            Your comment is ambiguous. It is unclear as to ‘the record.’

          Amazing considering that minority folks who have worked for Trump tell a totally different story…

          • Doc

            Parallel to Jews who worked for and reported their own to Nazi officials overseeing the implementation of policies during the 1930s hroughout Germany. Such Jews in cahoots with Nazis would have equally held a different story about German social realities.

            Just remember that when Trump takes the oath. It may not be the brand of limited freedom YOU want, but it will be a breath of freedom that Americans have not breathed for a long time.

  • حصاد الذئب

    Downvoting is the most pernicious aspect of social media ever devised and will sink this site as soon as a base of power like SRS becomes sufficiently established to do so. You’ve learned nothing from the failures of reddit. How stupid.

    • I trust Gab to get around this. If Gab is truly for free speech, it will not succumb to failures already visited. Gab will evolve to circumvent mobs who scheme to keep voices unheard.

      • Aaron M

        Diminishing returns on down votes is one way to do it. Counting upvotes more is another way. Detecting when the same people (i.e. a mob) up or downvote the same things over and over.

        Just off the top of my head.

        • Jim

          And that is censorship don’t trust up or down votes that’s on you you tell gab to do it you again ask for outsider to do what they say is opposite to the goal.

    It’s amazing and sad how some are still TRUMP haters when the man is a great
    successful business man who may not be perfect but he’s AMERICAN! unlike BO
    who lied about everything in his past and the media ignored it even though it was
    there for all to see and hear! now Hellary has so much baggage her diapers she
    wears are so full of crap you can smell her across the world and people support
    her and willing to let this pos and the left wing Demoncraps continue with BO’s
    and the lefts decades of destruction? Trump had to go thru the red tape of the
    left and right politics to get things done and Hellary is part of that red tape and
    will make even more red tape to tie up regulations and put more strain on jobs
    and businesses! IS THAT WHAT YOU MORONS ON THE LEFT WANT? dopes!
    I can understand all the brainwashed and free loaders who live on the left wing
    demoncraps crumbs and handouts and the IVY league and rich liberals who
    benefit off all the left wing scams like climate change and Obombacare etc…
    who refuse to give up their tax payer money and produced nothing jobs but any
    hard working America should be sick and tired of the failed policies of the LEFT!

    I haven’t even signed up for the Beta and I blogged about my hope for Gab! (hope the link works): https://www.facebook.com/notes/matt-blom/the-gift-of-gab/10157334479425015

  • Great invention, but isn’t MeWe technologically superior? On MeWe, you can do anything you can on Twitter or Facebook, but they also have good group features. You can’t have a conversation on Twitter or Gab. Also, if the point of staying on Twitter is to do battle with fascist progressives, then why move to a Twitter clone where there are no fascist progressives?

    I like and appreciate the idea and contribution; I just think it would be better to invest in MeWe or Diaspora.

  • canopfor

    Interesting me thinks!

  • What I don’t like about GAP.ai is that you can’t read before joining. That I have no way to know if GAB is worth my EMail address. Which you have to give away for the invite.

    Also I like to share links to articles outside the community. If non members only get redirected to the get an “invite” defeats the object. You know: sharing is caring. You can’t do that with a closed community.

    Both GNUsocial (https://sealion.club/sockenpuppe) and Minds (https://www.minds.com/Sockenpuppe) fair better in both respects.

    And then there is the three hundert character limit. Coming not from Twitter (https://twitter.com/Sockenpuppe_1) but Google+ (https://plus.google.com/101516099039613794574) that seems restricting.

    PS: Note how I was able to share link to my profile to non signed up users? This is what I expect from a social network.

  • Murad Beybalaev

    Users can post “Gabs,” which have a 300 character limit
    Oh, yeah, thanks so much for limiting me. I’ll pass.

    • It is free. And Twisted only has 140 characters permitted. 300 is an improvement by nearly 2.25 times

      Yup, a video source is needed, hopefully they will incorporate this, same opportunity exists as YouTube is now taking away monetiziation from conservative feeds.

    Who are the “makers” of GAB?

  • timmaguire

    I just heard about gab yesterday through Instapundit. I’m on the list now, but I have serious concerns about the TOS, particularly the repeated use of the deservedly ridiculed phrase “zero tolerance.” Particularly the zero tolerance for violence and threats. Under the gab TOS, you cannot post about a boxing match, you cannot post self defense advice for victims of violence or even recommend self-defense generically. (Zero tolerance!) Ironically, Glenn Reynolds, whose travails with twotter led me to gab, would be banned from gab in an even more extreme way then he was banned from twitter.

    It’s a TOS that cannot and (obviously) will not be enforced fairly. Unless this TOS is fixed, it already contains the seeds of gab’s demise.

    Is there some magic trick to joining gab? I’m quite certain my email is valid, but gab says otherwise.

  • thinkerfromiowa

    A few weeks ago, I mentioned on Facebook a place called Gab-ai, which was supposedly a place to post without the censorship that is rampant in Facebook. I’m afraid that I have to tell you to avoid that place at all cost.
    First of all, it has scores of problems. It is in beta — in reality, with all of the problems, it should be called “alpha” — and there is no telling when they will get it right.
    Its biggest problem is that it does not keep accurate records of the material you type in when you join. I often use the username “thinkerfromiowa,” and I used it there. I also used a password that I use other places. But when I type the stuff in I get an error message that says “your information doesn’t match our records.” There is no way of learning what their “records” really say. I can log on by resetting my password to my old password, but who wants to go through that crap when you are in a mood to post?
    There’s an old saying that says, “If it sounds too good to be true, it generally is.” That is VERY true about Gab.ai. So right now, your only option is to put up with the unconstitutional censorship. However, if you are Conservative, there is a good place called “Tea Party Community.” They are passionately in love with the Constitution, unlike Facebook, and you are free to post as you wish.
    Hopefully, Gab.ai will pass into beta and then into a full-blown website that delivers what it promises. But until then, stay away from it!!

    • Adrian

      Try it again – I just created two accounts today, with no hassle. It’s still in beta, so you should expect some hiccups. I imagine when you tried it, it was even more raw.

  • Kay Powell

    Your link will not allow me to sign up with my Gmail account. Tried different accounts, same result, says email not valid address. Help! I want in, please!!!

  • Never ever signed-on to Bookface, deleted my Linked-In and deactivated my Twitter. I find Gab refreshingly open and honest, without “shaming” and virtue-signaling – and a fast dwell-time.

  • Spike Team Idaho

    Definitely worth keeping a weather eye on this.

  • Beta looks promising.
    Need a way to easily insert/attach GIFs from your own computer.
    A user guide to cover features as they are added to the beta would be helpful.
