Gab literally cannot accept credit or debit card transactions to sell you a hat on the internet. Thankfully we had options: checks and bitcoin. New and old technology coming together to defeat financial censorship. It’s not perfect, but it works and we are about to take it to the next level.

I bet Torba doesn't mind sitting on a big ol' pile o' Bitcoin lucre.

At the $64K ATH Stefan Molyenux's Bitcoin donations totaled something like $60-80 million.

I’m glad DMs are back but there’s a major problem: there’s no notification when you get one. I didn’t even realize 11 people had DMd me until I clicked the message thing to DM someone else.

Unfortunately for Stefan it appears he cashed out along the way so most of those Bitcoin were sold in the low 4 figure range. He did however cash out 10 BTC in January 2021 worth over $300,000 USD. So he is probably still set for life from all those donations.

Hit Piece on Gab Falls Flat, Makes Gab Look Based​

I woke up to yet another hit piece about both Gab and myself this morning. You know you are over target when you’re taking flak on a weekly basis. The funny thing is the “hit piece” actually made Gab look pretty great.

The journo who wrote it admitted that Gab is positioned for success, admitted that Gab doesn’t answer to the powers that be, and admitted that I am personally authentic with my belief in Jesus Christ, free speech, and defending Christian values. It’s nice when even your enemies can’t help but to admit that you are authentic and poised for success if nothing else. You can watch my full response and breakdown of this latest attack on our community below.


This hit piece follows the recent defamatory attacks from the New York Times and the Washington Post after I dared to remind people that they have religious liberty and bodily autonomy in this country. Sharing vaccine religious exemption forms, which can be found here, is apparently “disinformation” according to the powers that be. Many people have reached out to let me know that the exemption forms worked at their school or place of employment, praise God for that! Maybe they will work for you too.

So I’m going to keep sharing them and I encourage you to do so as well, especially now that employers seem likely to force vaccine mandates after the rushed FDA “approval.” Note that 100 million people who are already skeptical of every branch of government aren’t likely to be compelled by the approval of another three letter government agency which has so often in the past approved dangerous drugs that were later recalled.

FDA approval means nothing to me. I don’t look to our failing secular and wicked institutions for validation, I have God for that.

Remember when the FDA approved Quaaludes, which are now considered a Schedule 1 drug like heroin?

The FDA also approved DES, a “synthetic form of estrogen, was marketed to the expecting mother who preferred to have a healthy baby. It claimed to prevent spontaneous abortion, miscarriage, and premature labor. Studies soon showed that mothers who took DES during the first five months of pregnancy were more likely to suffer from complications with their reproductive systems. The FDA finally banned it in 1971.”

The FDA approved Vioxx, “an anti-inflammatory medication intended to treat arthritis, was the subject of one of the largest recalls in history. After it was approved in 1999, it was prescribed to over 20 million people and was one of the most widely prescribed drugs of 2003. The following year, it was recalled. One of the FDA’s own scientists, Dr. David Graham, estimated that Vioxx had been associated with more than 27,000 heart attacks or deaths linked to cardiac problems.”

There are many more examples that you can research yourself. The bottom line is that this is predicatably being used as an excuse for the government and employers to force experimential vaccinations on people. Meanwhile Israel, one of the most fully vaccinated countries in the world, is struggling with a surge of the Delta variant of Covid.

The best part about all of these attacks is that Gab is so big now that this post you are reading will get more views than all of these hit pieces on us combined. That’s really what they are mad about: our distribution is now larger than some of the top “news” outlets in the world and there’s nothing they can do to stop me from hitting the publish button on this blog.

I’m getting private messages from hundreds of people on Gab who are afraid of what these vaccine mandates will mean for their families and personal health. I don’t have all the answers, but I do have faith that God is using this time of trial to draw us closer to Him. Please know that I am praying for each and every one of you and am doing my best to share your stories and make sure that Gab is the one place on the internet where you can get access to information that is banned everywhere else.

God bless you and God bless America,

Andrew Torba

Torba is a hero, and I hope to build my business to be as based as his and a fraction as effective for good.. but man, someone needs to help him with his style. If he just threw on a white henley here under his leather jacket he would come off much better for that initial impression.

He needs to build his style around that hat, because it will become classic Americana someday.

Torba: I had a chat with our moderation team today and there has recently been an uptick in accounts fedposting and promoting violence. Some of these accounts are brand new and likely infiltrators. Others are longstanding accounts. I understand that with everything going on in the world right now that people want to let off some steam and can have bad days posting very foolish things, but we have a zero tolerance policy for this stuff for a very good reason.

Do not advocate for violence. Do not fedpost. Period. We don't allow fedposting or the promotion/advocation of violence for two reasons: first, it's against US law and therefore our terms of service. Second, we do it to protect our users from having actual feds show up at their house because they were being a moron and posting threats or promoting violence on the internet.

Wise up and cut the crap, for your own sake and for Gab's as a whole. If you see someone promoting or advocating for violence please use our reporting tool to let our moderation team know.

Good man. Obvious hit piece.
Yep. It's pretty obvious they want to ask him about the Congress letter he received, which he posted and wrote about via his Gab News page.


Edit. Fun fact: she used to write for The Daily Beast.

Torba is heroic. Lots to like about him. I wish him success.

But, his belief in "free speech" is naive and misguided. Those Dark-lightenment concepts allowed the enemies of Christendom to gain the upper hand. Gab--like Google--should institute their own speech codes and values (like the comment policy at Jim's Blog).

I'm beginning to realize that the whole concept of freedom is Satan's deception. You are either a servant of God or you're a slave to the sin. No one is without a master, no one is his own God.

Agreed 100%. As a former libertarian/ancap, I can see how much damage these ideologies caused. As with so many things, Satan takes concepts that are good and just in principle and then twists and distorts them so they become godless parodies of the original, something the followers will worship as their god instead. Libertarians, for example, worship freedom, free speech, free market - not realising that without God nothing is truly free. So, the actual freedom can only exist when it's bound and harnessed by God's laws. But many libertarians think it would be too restrictive because, well, there should be no restriction on freedom. Except for, of course, those restriction we came up with (non-aggression principle).

Saying that, I still support Andrew Torba and his platform as even though he does seem to put a lot of faith in free speech, he certainly puts even more faith in Jesus Christ!
