Derek Peterson is a man who runs a company called Hope Holdings. Hope Holdings is creating human friendly technologies. Human friendly technologies are free speech and privacy oriented technologies. The website of his company is hopeholdings.org
Derek Peterson made critical statements about Gab and Gab banned him because of that. All of the content from his Gab channel was deleted. His Gab channel was gab.com/onewaydotcom
After having all of his content deleted from his Gab account, Derek Peterson recorded a video where he exposes the Dissenter browser which was published by Gab. What you’ll learn in this article are some of the most important things that Derek Peterson exposed in his video titled “Dissenter Browser by Gab.com”.
In his video Derek Peterson tells that Andrew Torba was a guest at Infowars for around 30 minutes, where Alex recommended people to download a browser published by Gab, called Dissenter. Derek Peterson warned people to not download Dissenter because it spies on people. You will soon learn more about that.
Before they started talking about Dissenter, Alex Jones first introduced Andrew Torba by saying this:
“I like Andrew Torba because he’s got a lot of courage. He’s a great Silicon Valley programmer who was rising up the ranks to very top. He’s a very skilled individual. He set up Gab with massive users.”
Next Derek Peterson explained that Andrew Torba is not a programmer and that he doesn’t know how to code. Peterson said: “Andrew Torba is not a programmer. He couldn’t write a line of code if his life depended on it. He’s a philosophy major, something like that.” “And wasn’t climbing the ladder in Silicon Valley or anything of the sort.”
In fact, it says on Gab’s own page that Andrew Torba completed a Bachelor of Arts in philosophy in 2013, at the University of Scranton. Gab’s page doesn’t mention any of his programming education, learning, experience, practice or anything similar whatsoever.
So it’s obvious that Andrew Torba has no knowledge about programming. Since Andrew Torba has no knowledge about programming, he couldn’t have climbed the ladder in the Silicon Valley. It’s simply a false claim. Andrew Torba could have told to Alex Jones that he has no knowledge about programming and that he is definitely not a “great Silicon Valley programmer” as Alex Jones presented him. However Andrew Torba did not reveal the truth in Infowars show and was just silent about the fact that he knows nothing about programming.
Next, Derek Peterson said that Andrew Torba and Gab are lying about the number of their viewers. Derek Peterson published his video on September 29, 2020. That’s more than 7 months ago. At that time, in September 2020, Derek said that Andrew Torba claimed Gab has a million users. Derek said in September 2020 that Gab has around 2000 viewers and that Andrew Torba is lying when he is saying that Gab has a million users. Again, that was back in September 2020. Now the number of Gab users must be much higher than in September 2020, since the mainstream media was talking about Gab a lot.
Although the mainstream media was viciously criticizing Gab, that was still a commercial, since those people who don’t trust the mainstream media learned about Gab and several of them signed up. So the mainstream media was actually promoting Gab by talking about it a lot, even if they were saying only negative things about it. People who know that the mainstream media is lying, got interested in Gab once they learned about it from the mainstream media. I call that inverse commercial.
In his video Derek Peterson warned people that Dissenter published by Gab is spying on people. He said that they should not download it and that this would be a terrible idea.
This is what Derek Peterson revealed about spying activities of Dissenter:
“It reports all your IP addresses, every website you visit and identifies it with you and your Gab account, right, because you have to have a Gab account to use the extension. It takes your identity there, identifies it and keeps track of every single website that you visit, every URL that you visit and associates with your IP and you Gab account, okay, forever!”
So Dissenter is a spying on you. It records all your IP addresses. If you change your IP address, Gab will record that and know you have used this IP address. All the IP addresses that you use, will be associated with your Gab account forever. Besides that Gab will know every single website that you visit, forever.
Dissenter is a software which was basically stolen from Brave and which had some spying featured added. Since Brave is a privacy oriented software, while Dissenter is spying on people. Derek Peterson told what a programer at Brave, Jonathan Sampson, revealed about Dissenter on Twitter. Jonathan Sampson wrote this:
“There’s a call to dissenter.com for the /discussion/begin-extension path. Along with it, a query string appears to carry the current URL. Checking this from another page confirms the URL is sent in the clear to Dissenter’s servers when expanding the extension.”
This is a programmer talk so you probably didn’t understand everything. But what it means is that Dissenter is sending all the URLs that you visit to their server. And from there they can send these URLs to the information center of the deep state.
This is what Derek Peterson said: “So it’s sending your URLs to Dissenter’s servers and who knows where. Every URL, every page you visit. It’s associating your URL with your Gab, with your IP. Your Gab account, your IP and URLs you visit. And storing and catching them all.”
Jonathan Sampson wrote another statement:
“Oh, interesting. The Dissenter extension track all pages, even internal pages like Settings. It also loads font files from gstatic.com. Ouch – and it sends origin: dissenter.com in the HTTP request, forever associating the user IP address with Dissenter. Hmm.”
Although this is some more programmer talk, I am sure you understood the last part, where it says: “forever associating the user IP address with Dissenter,” which simply means that it’s forever associating your IP address with Dissenter.
On the top of it, Andrew Torba said on Infowars show that they built Dissenter from the ground up, which is a total lie. This is what Andrew Torba said when he was a guest at Infowars:
“We had no choice but to build these things from the ground up, including a web browser. And that’s what we’ve done now with Dissenter.”
Derek Peterson commented by saying this: “That’s an utter absolute lie. That’s a fraud and that’s a lie.”
Derek Peterson explained that Brave blocks adds and is privacy focused. He said Brave does not report any URLs that you visit and does not report information related to you.
Derek Peterson then also told that Gab took Brave, forked it a little bit, added some spying features and changed the logo.
Gab basically stole the software from Brave. They didn’t even take some time to change the design. They just changed colors and added a new logo.
Derek Peterson has commented what Gab is doing by saying this:
“They literally just steal other people’s stuff, take credit for it and slap the word free speech on it. And then try to raise money for it.” “That is a grift. That is fraud. Right. Plain as day. Okay. It’s all it is.”
The respected programer Brendan Eich confronted Gab about forking his software. Forking means to take a software that somebody else developed and to tweak it a little bit. Among other things, Brendan Eich wrote to them: “”Build” is not the same as “fork”. “Who needs another browser just to sideload an extension.” Gab first responded to Brendan Eich, but then deleted all of their messages.
Dissenter is not an open source code. It has hidden parts that nobody knows what exactly they are doing.
A person called Winston Smith asked Gab the following question:
“When are you goin to open source Gab code?”
A programer at Gab, called Rob Colbert, responded:
“We’re not likely to ever completely open all layers of our technology. We will be giving people tools to build sites that work with Gab and that’s all I’m saying for today.”
So Gab’s code in not open source. It has hidden parts or black boxes that nobody knows what they are doing.
Some of these black boxes definitely contain code for spying, since Dissenter was caught spying on people.
In his video Derek Peterson also exposed that Dissenter is not updated regularly enough to be secure. He said that Brave is updated every few days, while Dissenter is updated every few months, which he claims is not enough for security.
Derek Peterson also revealed that Gab was not deplatformed by Stripe because Robert Bowers, one of the users on Gab, was shooting in the synagogue in Pittsburgh. Peterson said that Gab was deplatformed by Stripe because there was child porn and other porn being sold on Gab. Peterson stated: “Nothing to do with the shooting, okay. They were deplatformed for child porn, okay, for having child porn and other porn behind paywalls and through their streaming service and things like that, okay.”
Derek Peterson showed the message which Stripe sent to Andrew Torba. This message was published by Gab on their Twitter account. The message that Stripe sent to Andrew Torba said the following: “During a routine review of your Stripe account, we identified your business as potentially being in violation of the Stripe Services Agreement, section A.7.b (“Prohibited business and activities”). Specifically, we’re unable to accept payments for the sale of products or services that facilitate access to adult content.”
Towards the end of the video, Derek Peterson said: “They didn’t build the browser. It’s a dangerous browser to use. Alex Jones should apologize to his listeners for recommending that they download this browser and endorsing this obvious scam and grift.”
“”Gab is taking three million dollars to build a social network that doesn’t work and to build a browser that they stole the code from and put a new logo on it. Very sketchy stuff.”
My personal view is that extremely likely Andrew Torba is an agent of the New World Order. He is a front man and works as a CEO of Gab which is controlled opposition. Gab controls the narrative in a covert way and spies on people. Andrew Torba builds none of the software and doesn’t even create the basic ideas for it. The deep state is the one that is running Gab, Andrew Torba is just a face they use.
