We’re already seeing some free speech social media networks and apps starting to rise to compete with the censorious leftist giants of Silicon Valley, platforms like MeWe, Gab, Rumble and the recently-returned Parler.com (reminder: the Capitol rioters mostly communicated via Facebook and Instagram, not Parler.) Last week, I told you that MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell said he is creating a new social media network for free speech. And now, the big dog has barked.

Former President Trump’s spokesman announced that he is creating his own social media platform that will launch in two to three months. Just as CNN’s ratings have tanked by as much as 50 percent once they didn’t have Trump to kick around and blame for everything from bad weather to their ingrown toenails, Twitter (which banned Trump) might learn that it will hurt them far more than Trump when he takes his tens of millions of followers to a new platform that competes with them.

These other platforms have a tough row to hoe, competing as small, poorly-funded upstarts against multi-billion-dollar established giants that act like ironfisted monopolies with no fear that the current government will stop them. They might not have such luck against a former President with billions of dollars himself and a built-in following of over 75 million voters. Frankly, if the competition sends Twitter and Facebook and all their censorious, cancel-culture trolls spiraling to the same irrelevancy as MySpace, it could be the greatest contribution Trump ever makes to saving America.

    I am beginning to believe with all my heart & soul, that the ONLY redemption for this country is to have a mobilization point that will be provided by Trump’s social media platform. My God this country & its leaders are taking us down FAST!

    So my one concern about Donald Trump returning to social media is that someone needs to teach him kindness, manners, and how to stick to his own issues and not worry about anyone who criticizes him. I do believe his popularity has risen since he has been off social media and he should take that message under advisement.

    I hope and pray President Trump starts his own social media! I will drop FB and join it even if I have to pay for the priviledge! He has been SO unfairly treated by the Media and social networks, and now we Conservatives will have a Voice! I pray that God will bless President Trump and help him to prosper in every way. Thank you for always supporting him, Governor Huckabee!

    This will be great for the country and her citizens. How will we know how to get on the new site? Even if he tells us through email, it's still Google or one of the other Zuckerberg controlled media. I hate the captcha thing.

    Or will Twitter just send their ubiquitous AttackTwits over to Trump's new platform to bedevil him there? It's not that easy to steal a march against Trump, though. Hopefully he's got a plan for that.
