GETTR officially launched on July fourth to declare ‘independence’ from Big Tech

Former Donald Trump senior adviser Jason Miller launched a new social media platform on Sunday, using the July fourth holiday to declare “independence” from Big Tech.

Miller declared that the platform, which he calls “GETTR” and says came from the idea of “getting together” as a community on social media, officially launched at 10 a.m. ET.

“GETTR is a direct challenge to the social media oligarchs from Silicon Valley, and what better day to declare independence from their woke tyranny than July 4th?” Miller, GETTR’s chief executive officer, said in a statement. “GETTR is the marketplace of ideas. We will not cancel people for their political opinions, and GETTR offers far more features and better technology than anything else out there.”

Miller last week told Fox News – which was first to report on the new platform – that the July fourth launch was “very much intentional.” He emphasized that it “ties in with Independence Day. Independent from social media monopolies, independent from cancel culture; embracing free speech.”

On Sunday, he announced that while GETTR was only available for a small amount of time during Beta testing, it rushed into the top 10 among all free Apps downloaded from the Apple App Store and ranked third among social networking Apps. He added that GETTR ranked two among all free Apps in the Google Play App Store, ahead of the launch.

Miller pointed to what he called “the explosion of interest in GETTR,” and stressed that the platform is not just for conservatives but “for people of all political stripes from around the world. We’re not afraid of ideas that challenge our own. That’s what the online experience should always be about.”

Miller said that GETTR permits users to post longer messages with up to 777 characters, will also permit users to post “clearer pictures,” post videos that are up to three minutes long, and have the ability to edit the videos while using the app. He added that when you sign up for GETTR, users will have the choice to “import their existing tweets into this new platform.”

As for former President Trump, Miller told Fox News last Thursday that “realDonaldTrump is waiting for him and ready to go.”

“We certainly hope President Trump will join the platform, but I’ll leave it to him to make decisions on what he’s doing,” Miller said.

Miller told Fox News that Trump is not backing the platform in any way.

“I hope he joins, but President Trump has a number of different options he’s considering,” Miller said.

The former president’s been looking for ways to reach his millions of supporters after being banned from Twitter and suspended from Facebook earlier in the year. Trump temporarily tried to engage his base through the launch of a now nonexistent blog.

The banning of Trump from the social media giants’ platforms only amplified feelings by Trump supporters and conservatives that Big Tech is attempting to silence the right online.

Former Trump 2020 campaign spokesperson Tim Murtaugh is also involved with the new app, serving as a consultant.

President Joe Biden said that Pope Francis let him know he was a “good Catholic” and said he could keep on taking communion regardless of the complaints of numerous U.S. bishops.

Biden made the case after a private gathering with the pontiff at the Vatican on Friday.

“We just talked about the fact he was happy that I was a good Catholic and I should keep receiving Communion,” Biden said about the gathering.

He added that the topic of abortion didn’t come up in the gathering.

An assertion from the White House showed that Biden said thanks to the Pope for pushing for an “equitable global economic recovery” and for battling global warming.

“Biden thanked His Holiness for his advocacy for the world’s poor and those suffering from hunger, conflict, and persecution,” the assertion added.

Gold Star father David Horton slammed President Joe Biden in a meeting Sunday, scrutinizing the Biden organization’s accounted for plan to convey huge financial installments to some migrant families.

The Wall Street Journal announced last week about the arrangement to pay migrant families affected by previous President Donald Trump’s zero-tolerance illegal immigration policies.

The Biden administration is in talks to offer immigrant families that were separated during the Trump administration around $450,000 a person in compensation, according to people familiar with the matter, as several agencies work to resolve lawsuits filed on behalf of parents and children who say the government subjected them to lasting psychological trauma.

The U.S. Departments of Justice, Homeland Security, and Health and Human Services are considering payments that could amount to close to $1 million a family, though the final numbers could shift, the people familiar with the matter said. Most of the families that crossed the border illegally from Mexico to seek asylum in the U.S. included one parent and one child, the people said. Many families would likely get smaller payouts, depending on their circumstances, the people said.

Among the issues pundits have raised with the arrangement, the greatest is that non-citizens remain to get additional cash from the U.S. government than gold star families if the arrangement becomes reality.

As of now, the U.S. government pays the group of fallen assistance individuals $100,000 in “death gratuity”; the installments are tax excluded. The families of service members additionally have the choice to gather a limit of $400,000 in extra security, however administration individuals need to pay into the protection intend to accept its advantages.

Speaking on “Fox and Friends,” Horton — whose son, Army Spc. Christopher Horton, was killed in Afghanistan in 2011 — proclaimed the Biden administration’s arrangement “an insult” and clarified it disrespects military families.

“I think it’s another — yet another insult … against our military families and Gold Star families and veterans’ families,” Horton said. “It’s just another another slap in the face. It’s completely disrespectful.”

“To compare an illegal person who has broken our country’s border laws … they’ve broken the law coming in on our borders and to compare that with someone, a patriot like my son, who gave his all on the battlefield of Afghanistan, and to just say, ‘Oh well, the value is more for someone who has broken our laws’ … and now to say, ‘Oh, we owe you money — and it’s more money than we would pay a patriot — I am outraged,” Horton said.

“You just wonder, where is the outcry against some of these policies that are just there? Unbelievable to me,” Horton added.
