This is wild!

I don’t think Donald Trump knows how to run a social media company!

Bloomberg News:

News late Wednesday that the former president’s nascent media enterprise, Trump Media & Technology Group, is planning to go public via a special purpose acquisition company has sent retail investors into a frenzy, even with few details released. The stock gain drove the implied value of the new venture to more than \$8.2 billion.

Based on figures from press releases and filings to the Securities and Exchange Commission, it appears Trump will own more than 50% of the combined company. At its current value, that would make him the richest he’s ever been, up from his estimated net worth now of \$2.5 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

Now comes the arrival of the social-media outlet that Trump, the leader in polls for the GOP presidential nomination in 2024, has been teasing at for some time. There are many reasons to be skeptical of the valuation. It will be months before the new venture publicly releases its first product, a social-media platform called Truth Social. And there are already technical issues. On Thursday, the Truth Social page was hacked to make it appear that Trump shared a photo of a defecating pig.

It’s also unclear how Trump plans to build a social-media platform on the scale of Twitter over the next few months, let alone a streaming service, which is the next phase of Trump Media’s plans, according to the press release announcing the company. That statement was light on numbers even by SPAC standards.

“We have no financials. We have no business plan. We don’t know how they got to the valuation. We have no information,” said Kristi Marvin, chief executive of research firm SPAC Insider. “That’s the fundamental problem.”

Representatives for Trump and Trump Media didn’t respond to requests for comment.

The business has ambitious plans that also include a potential “tech stack” to compete with Amazon.com Inc.’s AWS and Google’s Cloud, among others, according to a presentation on Trump Media’s website. As of now, Digital World’s board is light on members with media experience. Its chief executive officer, Patrick Orlando, is a former Deutsche Bank AG derivatives trader who co-founded a sugar-trading company and started a banking firm, Benessere Capital, before more recently embracing SPACs.

So far, retail investors have little concern. Shares of Digital World Acquisition Corp., the shell company merging with Trump’s new venture to take it public, closed Friday at \$94.20 — up from \$9.96 before the deal was announced Wednesday. It’s also an increase of more than 800% from a \$10 offering price that’s typically used in a SPAC merger agreement.

The press release said the new company would have an initial enterprise value of \$875 million. Assuming that calculation used a \$10 a share offering price and the \$293 million Digital World has in trust, the SPAC’s owners will get about 42% of the combined company after accounting for shares the sponsor receives if a deal gets done.

That leaves 58% for Trump and any partners he has in Trump Media. That stake is worth nearly \$4.8 billion, based on Digital World’s last price. The whole enterprise is being valued by the market at about \$8.2 billion, compared with Twitter Inc.’s almost \$50 billion equity valuation.

With the new media company’s valuation dwarfing the \$875 million enterprise value agreed to by Trump, he may have been able to negotiate a sweeter deal. Terms of the agreement will need to be more fully disclosed and could still change before an agreement gets voted on by shareholders, an event that is probably months away.

For those who don’t know, a SPAC usually allows people to buy shares before they know what the venture is. It’s actually a really ridiculous concept, like a mystery box on a game show.

When the initial investors in this SPAC found out it was Trump on the other end of it, a bunch of them dumped their shares. Then they increased in value by more than 12X.

So, it’s funny.

But seriously – so far, Trump promoted a failed blog. Then he sort of seemed to endorse Twitter-clone GETTR, which was an absolute disaster, filled with porno spam.

We have pretty solid evidence that Trump will not allow anyone to criticize Jews on any site he is on. Gab CEO Andrew Torba said that he talked to Trump’s people after Trump was banned from Twitter, and they said that Torba would have to ban everyone who criticizes Jews or Israel.

Video Link

Then, the same day Trump made an official deal to have an official Rumble account, that company released an updated terms of service banning criticism of the Jews.

An outright ban of criticism of the Jews effectively means that every sort of interesting conversation is banned.

Just as one obvious example: Jews claim that any criticism of vaccines is anti-Semitism, because Jews made the vaccines.

So, if you can’t talk about Jews, you can’t really talk about anything. Of course, banning all criticism of Jews is bad enough. And just stupid. But apparently, even after Jared Kushner destroyed his presidency and caused him to have the 2020 election stolen from him, Trump still lets Kushner run his entire life.

Whatever. I don’t care.

Trump is a vaxer, and that is the only thing that matters to me anymore. I literally don’t care about anything else, as I do not think any other issue is relevant as long as the vax issue exists.

Given that Trump is literally a Pfizer shill and a fanatical vax maniac, he will also probably outright ban any criticism of the pandemic hoax and these deadly fake vaccines.

I’ve tried to work through why he is promoting these vaccines so hard, given that basically 100% of his supporters are against them, and I’ve come to the conclusion that he’s most likely getting paid by Pfizer.

You guys might have seen this “Brought to you by Pfizer” video – if not, it’s only 53 seconds.

Video Link

Basically, I think anything Trump does might as well say “brought to you by Pfizer.”

Given the blanket ban on criticism of the Jews, there will likely be more aggressive censorship on “Truth Social” than there is on Twitter. Trump of course thinks it’s just all about him, and the people around Trump do not seem to grasp the fact that censorship simply is not viable for an alternative social media platform. The only reason anyone is going to leave a mainstream social media platform is that they are getting censored or the content they like is getting censored, and if you ban criticism of the Jews (and follow the ADL rules as to what amounts to “criticism of Jews,” which at this point includes Tucker Carlson), you end up with Mike Cernovich and Paul Joseph Watson, who are still at this point allowed on Twitter.

I don’t think Trump understands the censorship issue at all, or he would have done something when I was censored in 2017. It was obvious then that his own days were numbered. But he seems to think that censorship started with him, and the only thing people want to talk about is the election fraud. In reality, every right-winger is more concerned about the vax than the election.

When you add to that the fact that Trump has proved consistently that he does not understand how to run a business, and has had all of these problems with getting any type of media presence since getting banned, I do not think this is going to work at all.

Apparently, it is literally a meme stock. I don’t give financial advice. It’s possible that it will go up from where it is now, I guess. But it will not maintain value. As soon as Truth Social comes out and it is totally broken and filled with porn and everyone is getting banned by some brutal ADL-appointed team of Jews that Kushner brings in, the value is going to collapse immediately.

The sad part is, virtually anyone else on earth could create a real competitor to Twitter/Facebook with an 8 billion dollar SPAC.

Note: I just want to remind everyone that I’m as sad as you are about Donald Trump turning into what he’s turned into. He is Pet Semetary Trump. I don’t even like to write about it, really – but this is news. I lost everything for Trump. The censorship I experienced was all directly related to the fact that all those think tank research papers – including one by the ADL – said that I was responsible for getting Trump elected. He’s turned around and tried to vax me with a deadly satanic gene therapy.

  2. Anglin’s thinking is interesting in making the vax issue, the acid test for political legitimacy. Hell, I tend to agree with him on this highly important topic that has so very many implications for what is genuine democracy and therefore the actual rights Americans have.

    The Apprentice may have convinced Trump he’s good at managing a business and deciding who should be fired, rather than good at helping (((Russian))) organized criminals launder their ill-gotten gains.

  4. People can sit around sulking about Trump, but I like clarity, and he offers it—by letting you know that anyone supporting him is your direct enemy, from which you must separate mentally, if not in every other way.

    The standard above-midwit reaction to Trump, as Anglin offers, is disappointment. Forget it. Trump showed reality, and that’s better than the fantasy most were buying while swimming in leftist tears back in dream times.

    We didn’t lose Trump, because Trump never offered anything. The supposed downfall of the rat was merely him exposing himself. You lost nothing, and gained a clearer picture of real numbers and real rats. Wake up; time to live.

    Trump is/was a tweeter, not a leader.

    No one believes it now, but if DeSantis starts to build momentum, you will bear witness to (((fake news))) claiming, “Trump wasn’t so bad,” and promoting this one-time loser to be the gopertard nominee!

    Anglin is right, if you can’t even criticize Israel then what’s the point. Hell, antiwar.com still does that and it’s run by a weird Jewish lady. As an aside, I noticed that the FBI lost interest in that site right before she took over. Unz is the only place you can have a serious discussion about Jews. I’m open to suggestions.

    That is how the stock market is now. People throw money at companies, many unprofitable, and the stock price continues to rise. Of course, inflation is soaring so you may still be falling behind in real terms. The stock market is due for a big fall.

    Yes, I have never heard of someone building a media company from ground up with absolute confidence it will become a major player. Facebook, Twitter, Google and the many less successful ones like Myspace all started without knowing if they would even survive. And as someone else pointed out, all these media companies earn their money from advertising but corporate America is against Trump. Many may not advertise on his website. He can charge people for using the website but will people pay to use it?

    Thanks for the well-thought-out critique of Truth Social.

    I came to the conclusion that basically everything Trump does is for the money, especially after the “CARES” act debacle(Ellen Brown had a really good article about how that was basically written up by Blackrock 6 months beforehand, I recommend checking it out) But I had given up on the awoovment even before after Syria was bombed the first time. I guess the amazing thing is how little scruples the so-called”Leaders” of the alt-light or whatever have. But whatever. Honestly I feel like I have more in common with people like Jimmy Dore, Caleb Maupin or Nick Cruse than any of the happy MAGA merchants

  13. Chris Moore says: • Website

    Regarding Trump and army of ((Jewish))-duped followers, allow me to quote myself from another thread:

    Christians, for example, are brainwashed to turn the other cheek, so they don’t become bitter haters like ((Jews)). But this also becomes a pathology, because they have ignored the ((Jewish))-psychotic elephant in the living room to the point that it is now running the country based on mentally ill ((Jewish)) principles.

    This is really what the Trump legions have done. And we know why they’ve done it. In fact, they’ve done it for the same reason Trump does it: because ((Jews)) have such inroads into the Fed, Wall Street, the financial industry, and MSM.

    Anglosphere “Christians” aren’t really Christians anymore, and haven’t been for a long time. Because Christianity means veneration for the “anti-Semites” Moses and Jesus, who literally turned violent against Hebrew criminals and corruptors. In fact, that institutional memory is what made Christendom, and it was repeatedly validated and reinforced by Christian culture, even in the Anglosphere (for example, Shakespeare writing of the psycho ((Jew)) moneychanger Shylock; Dickens writing of the ((Jewish)) criminal Fagan).

    So Trump’s followers reflect Trump’s brand of “Christianity,” which worships ((Jewish)) criminals, because their crime gang has cornered so much of the market on money, which has allowed it to corner the market on so much media, which allows it to write the cultural narrative and establish cultural norms along the lines dictated by the ((ADL)).

    Of course, this too shall pass. Because Russia and China have seen what the ((Jews)) have done with their domination of the money franchise in the Anglosphere, and don’t have a death wish for their nations and peoples.

    Neither did the Anglosphere, at one point in time, before ((Jewish)) criminals made such inroads.

  14. Trump’s New Media Company Has a SPAC Worth \$8.2 Billion

    Just to be technically correct, the SPAC is (was) valued by the markets at that amount at some point in time. It may very well be worth far less than that if the software changes they made violated the GPL upon which it is based.

  19. Trump cashes in pretending to intend to construct alternative social media? How smart is that?

    Reminds me of the once lucrative dotcom IPO churn scams pre-2000. Vaporware for the coming release of Windows NT. Those were the days.

    Can’t think of a group of sheep more worthy of shearing.

    That money they throw at Trump will be used against them in the end. Probably puts them on a red flag list at the SEC too!

    Trump’s entire political operation might be better properly viewed is a conspiracy to divert right wing political money to his Shit Lib Grifter cause. Thus hurting and denigrating the political right. Trump’s a true blue Shit Lib.

And that movie was one where not one actor was in the cone of debris of the thousands of blanks expended in training, production and filming. Forget the EEOC weapons “expert” chick, Baldwin pointed a loaded .45 revolver at a human being, cocked it, and pulled the trigger, killing her. I don’t care he has regrets, he committed murder.

  30. Trump is a spent force and yesterday’s news and the fact that he started this new media company, is just showing that he doesn’t realize it yet. Jared Kushner probably encouraged him to do it for 1) To make lots of shekels and 2) To give the old man something to do 3) Again, divert the American right so that they hitch their wagons up to another dead horse.

    Trump’s a Zionist dog to the end.

    Also the conservative media is going into overdrive to promote Ron DeSantis for 2024, he and Marco Rubio are even bigger sycophants than Trump when it comes to the Zionist tribe, and will no doubt give us the same Ziocon BS of endless wars, endless immigration:

    I voted for Trump twice but will not vote for him in 2024, I want him gone. He is too thin skin, megalomaniac, tactless and ineffective as a leader. I hope Josh Hawley will get the nomination. He’s still a pretty anti-China neocon but nowhere near as big a sycophantic philo-Semite as Trump, which was just nauseating.

The boutique is led by Mexican founder Abraham Cinta, who’s lived in the Chinese financial center for over eight years…The firm also has offices in the central Chinese city of Wuhan, as well as Mexico City, Jakarta and Singapore

    For the past fifty years white Americans have been told “don’t be racist.” We now live in a country where anti-white is an official state ideology, explicitly or implicit. You can find it in gov., gov. programs, all the political parties and individual politicians. You can find it in our universities and public schools, the entire mainstream media and alternative media, and in the business world as well.
    What do white peoples do? They either do nothing, or, the promote diversity, multiculturalism, feminism and queer rights. Non-white people are allowed and encouraged to have race based special interest groups. White are not only not allowed, they are being told they don’t exist. Last year a black man was “murdered” by a white cop and American cities experienced mayhem for six months. I m not even sure what the hell happened because of such little coverage of the rioting. White people experience racial hatred and racial violence all the time, no one says anything.
    I think Mr.Anglin had a point about watching the ongoing Covid fiasco and vaxxing programs both here in America and abroad. The racial catastrophe that is America is a given-there is nothing left to salvage-white people are going to be knocked in the head with reality, but by then it will be too late.
    It is however very important to see what where the Federal gov. can get away with implementing mandatory vaccination. This door will in turn open another door with what the gov. Can get away with.

  40. In fairness, investing in centre-right media is a profitable pursuit. Fox News makes money, CNN doesn’t. And Australia’s News Corp is proving to be a great value play in an expensive market. So its not surprising there is investor interest in this project. Done properly, it should make money.

    On the other hand, investing in a profitable theme isn’t as smart as investing in a profitable company. Most politically incorrect investors aren’t going to sell their shares in Chevron, Gazprom, or British American Tobacco to invest in a flakey SPAC that isn’t producing anything.

  42. @anaccount

    I’m open to suggestions

    Suggestions ?

    I love the bleedin’ obvious… and lateral thinking… and other stuff too, so since you ask, I’m happy to make a suggestion:

    I suggest someone ask that awfully nice Mr Unz to consider the possibility – perfectly seriously – of actually taking a little time away from his software work or whatever – and taking the trouble to pick up the phone and contact Trump privately, which a man with his connections should be very easily able to do. The purpose being, to invite Trump to begin a regular contributory column to this very journal. Benefits ? Ok… Lets go:

    1) Ron would have the inordinate pleasure of being able to confirm to Trump that, on his fully-owned and intelligently-administered website here, the Moderation is generally light, and the censorship non-existent. That in itself is enough to make anyone with a brain cell stop and think – especially an ex-President who has been publicly humiliated across the world by Twitter – and then to draw very unfavourable comparisons against the mainstream media – including the Twittershit and the rest, whose ideas of political balance, factual analysis and impartial democratic fairness are limited to far-left cancel culture.

    2) This website would immediately – with Trump’s publicity, virtually overnight – receive the benefit of most of Trump’s colossal, exceptionally loyal and fanatical following who would be dropping in here to read his articles – and in the process browsing many hundreds of other unique and highly Deplorable articles (and hardline comments), and discovering more than they ever dreamed about the REAL causes of the West’s decline and those behind it. And just PERHAPS… that might actually in turn lead to a very sudden and unstoppable major wake-up for roughly half of the American voting population. Yes…HALF, being those who actually VOTED Republican – who currently have no idea at all exactly how gaslighted on every level of information and narrative they have been for decades by their own scum in the Senate – and by their own msm garbage and it’s invisible ((( owners ))).

    3) Since that is, I’d guess, the kind of sudden and overwhelming massive national publicity for TUR which even Mr Unz can presently only dream of – despite the obvious past visitor figure triumphs over the main opposition sites – I’d guess again that Ron would also very quickly find himself in some very unexpected national spotlight across the tv stations and a thousand political radio talkshows. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing – unless Ron genuinely prefers media anonymity. But however challenging that newfound publicity – and also some overt political opposition for sure – might be, I don’t think most entrepreneurs imagine anonymity is a smart goal for a website which is chasing visitors and revenue.

    4) And last for now – but not least – the delightful and wonderfully-entertaining spectacle of the resulting media explosion, probably of Mount Etna proportions, and subsequent tsunami of point-and-splutter outrage; NOT just for a “minority” conspiracy website which dares to offer a new free and open platform for Trump himself after all their efforts to silence him, but even more importantly, one which insists on publishing Deplorable writers who unveil every hidden narrative, explore every concealed motive, and underline every lying, invalid, political premise – and tops it all off with completely VERBOTEN anti-mainstream, anti-Left evidence and invective. Operating in the dark, on a tiny budget, with a comparatively small readership is one thing.But suddenly having unfettered access to the whole of Trump’s international fan-base is something else. What are the chances, I’d wonder, that the ADL and SPLC would be stupid enough in their endless chutzpah and hubris to lose patience at last – and come out publicly as ANTI-fact, ANTI-truth, ANTI-free-speech – and ANTI-American on every level ? That might even wake Trump himself up once and for all at long last – about the JQ in all it’s glory.

    The only downside I’d see is that Trump is at heart a real-estate dealer, a politican – and a general blusterer, with an addiction to Twitter-length soundbytes. I’d wonder quite seriously whether he’s ever written a tight, focussed, 2000-word essay in his life – I doubt it was ever a requirement for Business Studies at Pennsylvania University.

    But I can dream.

    National Vanguard, and it’s actual membership organization the National Alliance have a history of security lapses. Their current chairman is a boob, and a few years ago let a mostly-unvetted accountant onto the compound for some time to straighten out the books, try to cover some things up, and deal with unpaid tax charges from the IRS. He had little to no supervision, and made copies of current and past membership lists, book purchasers, financial contributors, etc. He gave all this info to the SPLC, and it was in turn given to the FBI and ADL.

    There has been other turmoil, in-fighting, poor decision-making, etc. Their site is a good one with good articles, and lots of them, but the org is unstable under current chairmanship.
