    Chris Pavlovski - CEO of Rumble

    I was just watching Tucker Carlson as he focused on the recent Orwellian-like developments where big tech companies have resorted to censoring platforms where conservatives prefer to voice their opinions, namely the shutting down of Parler, the Twitter alternative. Now that the Left have full political control of the U.S., it looks like the big “private” tech giants such as Google, Facebook, Twitter & Amazon (all of them thoroughly left-leaning) have been emboldened to make these illegal and unprecedented decisions without a care in the world.

    Tucker had the CEO of Parler on the show who explained that his company has filed a Law Suit against the big tech giants for shutting them down the way they did. Then, at the 26 minute mark, Tucker introduced the CEO of Rumble, Chris Pavlovski, who went on to explain that his company has followed suit and decided to sue Google for “unfairly rigging its search engine algorithms to wrongfully divert massive traffic to YouTube, which it owns”.

    Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube.


    A quick Google search revealed that Chris Pavlovski is a young Canadian Macedonian who is quite the Macedonian patriot (see Chris’ Twitter posts which I've linked below). His company Rumble seems to be quite popular among conservative viewers. The following info on Rumble is from Wikipedia:

    Rumble is a Canadian online video platform headquartered in Toronto. The site was founded by Chris Pavlovski, a tech entrepreneur from Canada.
    For its first seven years, content largely consisted of videos of pets and babies. In August of 2020, however, Representative Devin Nunes accused YouTube of being overly censorious toward his channel and began posting his videos on Rumble. Other prominent conservatives and libertarians such as Dinesh D’Souza, Sean Hannity, and Representative Jim Jordan soon followed. Although the platform forbids pornography, harassment, racist and illegal content, anything else is permitted.

      Can someone please click on Chris' twitter account that I provided above and let me know if you can still see his tweets regarding his Macedonian identity. I clicked on it this morning and it's telling me that "This tweet is unavailable".

      Wouldn't surprise me at all if Google and Twitter were watching Tucker as well last night and promptly canceled the CEO of Rumble after he revealed he was going to sue Google. Really hope that's not the case...

          Thinking about throwing some content on Rumble.
          A bit of digging around revealed a more than significant presence of Macedonians within the organisation. This is wonderful to see!

                Recently Rumble went public by merging with blank check firm CF Acquisition Corp VI, with the aim of competing with big tech companies. The deal is expected to provide about US$400 million in proceeds to Rumble and they will be listed on the Nasdaq Stock Exchange.

                They are also moving their headquarters to Florida.

                Some links below for a video and article.

                Big Tech’s monopoly days are coming to an end. The free and open internet is being reborn, and Rumble is leading the way.

                  "Rumble offers Joe Rogan $100M contract amid Spotify controversy

                  Offer comes as more artists boycott Spotify, accusing Rogan of spreading COVID-19 misinformation

                  Rumble is offering Joe Rogan a $100 million deal to join the Canada-based video platform in an attempt to woo the popular podcast host away from Spotify.

                  "We stand with you, your guests and your legion of fans in desire for real conversation. So we'd like to offer you 100 million reasons to make the world a better place," Rumble CEO Chris Pavlovski wrote in a note shared on Twitter. "How about you bring all your shows, both old and new, with no censorship, for 100 million bucks over four years? This is our chance to save the world. And yes, this is totally legit."

                  Representatives for Rumble, Rogan and Spotify did not immediately return FOX Business' requests for comment.

                  In 2020, Joe Rogan went exclusive with Spotify in a deal that could net the podcaster roughly $100 million.

                  Rumble, which launched in 2013, reached a total of 39 million monthly active users in January, marking a 19% increase over the previous month.

                  In December, the company announced it would go public through a business combination with special purpose acquisition company CF Acquisition Corp. as part of its mission to take on Big Tech as an alternative to YouTube. That same month, Trump Media & Technology Group announced it had entered an agreement with Rumble to provide video and streaming services to TRUTH Social, a social media platform expected to launch at the end of the first quarter of 2022."

                    Great advertising, but $25 million a year ain't gonna get him doing that. If he goes out on his own (or with Musk), MSM and big tech better watch out.

                      Agreed, great advertising idea, plenty of attention for Rumble. Joe Rogan has apparently declined the offer saying that he will stick with Spotify for now and see how things go. From what I am hearing Spotify have deleted a good number of his episodes from over the years that are 'controversial'. It will be interesting to see what happens with his podcast in the future.

                        "Rumble Completes Business Combination with CF Acquisition Corp. VI

                        — Rumble Stock to Trade on the NASDAQ Stock Exchange Under the Symbol “RUM”
                        — Rumble Retains Nearly All Cash in Trust Due to Total Redemptions of 0.1%

                        LONGBOAT KEY, FL and NEW YORK, NY – September 16, 2022 – Rumble Inc. (“Rumble”), the video-sharing platform, and CF Acquisition Corp. VI (Nasdaq: CFVI) today announced the completion of their previously announced business combination. The merger, which closed today, was approved at a special meeting of stockholders of CFVI on September 15, 2022. The combined company will operate as Rumble Inc. going forward and its common shares and warrants are expected to begin trading on the NASDAQ Stock Exchange under the ticker symbols “RUM” and “RUMBW” respectively, beginning on Monday, September 19, 2022.

                        The transaction provides Rumble with approximately $400 million in gross proceeds, including approximately $85 million of proceeds from a PIPE financing, $15 million from a Forward Purchase Investment, and approximately $300 million of cash held in a trust account. After payment of transaction expenses, the net proceeds will be used to attract new content creators to the Rumble and Locals platforms, continue to build out Rumble’s independent infrastructure, expand Rumble’s teams, begin robust marketing of the platform and services, finance future acquisitions, and for other general corporate purposes.

                        “Today marks an amazing milestone for our company, and one that I have been looking forward to for a long time,” said Chris Pavlovski, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Rumble. “This transaction allows Rumble to fund a wide range of business initiatives, including the development of our independent infrastructure while we continue to add top creators to our platforms. I am extremely excited to report that despite current market conditions, we have retained nearly all the cash in trust, with nearly zero redemptions from CFVI shareholders. This is truly a vote of confidence in our mission and platform, and I look forward to further delivering for all our constituents going forward.

                        Lastly, I would like to thank Rumble’s employees who have worked tirelessly to get us where we are today. Congratulations to the entire Rumble team on this incredible achievement,” concluded Chris Pavlovski.

                        Howard Lutnick, Chairman and CEO of Cantor Fitzgerald and CFVI, stated, “With its massive growth in users and engagement, this is an exciting time for Rumble to become public. I am excited to see ‘RUM’ shares trading in the marketplace.”

                          10 Things You Didn't Know About Chris Pavlovski


                          1. He is also the founder of Rumble.com

Rumble currently serves more than 18,000 clients, helping them distribute their videos and make money in the process.

                          2. Pavlovski has been officially recognized for his contributions
                          Chris has been acknowledged for his entrepreneurial skills publicly. In 2010, he was under consideration for a prestigious award issued by Ernst & Young. He made it all the way in the contest to the position of finalist for the Entrepreneur of the Year. Although he was not the recipient of the award, it is still an honor to have your hard work and skills appreciated and acknowledged.

                          3. Rumble.com isn’t the only company that he established
                          Chris Pavlovski went on to found yet another company after getting Rumble.com on its feet. He is also the founder of Cosmic Development. This is a global IT business that has gone international. The business owns and operates offices throughout North America and Europe.

                          4. Pavlovski treats his workers well
                          Chris has earned a solid reputation as one of the best employers in some parts of the world. He has earned the appreciation of employees who work for his business in Macedonia. The company has earned the distinction of being voted as the second-best employer in the country, which is no small feat.
                          A contributor to Chris’ huge success is his knowledge about how to treat people. He realizes that they help him to make his businesses successful. The Macedonian company has received several awards for excellence in various areas.

                          5. He has a heart for the people of Macedonia
                          Chris donates a great deal of his time to providing advisement and help to his local community in Macedonia. He sits on the Macedonia 2025 board, which is a non-profit organization seeking to provide educational and economic development in the country. Although Pavlovski is busy leading Rumble.com, he makes time to be available to provide advisement to the community of this and other organizations.


                          6. Chris Pavlovski is a serial entrepreneur
                          According to his Linkedin page, Chris has also founded a third company in addition to Cosmic and Rumble. In January of 2001, he founded the Jolted Media group. He remained with the company as the chief executive officer from January of 2001 through September of 2013.

                          He spent a total of 12 years and 9 months leading the group. The Jolted Media Group was headquartered in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. We can see that Chris has a talent for starting new businesses. From his track record we can also see that he stays with the companies he starts long enough to make sure that they are on solid footing.

                          7. He worked as a Director for a space exploration company
                          Even after founding his own companies, Chris Pavlovski spent time working for other companies in the tech industry. Chris is a dedicated and hard worker who served as the director of marketing for Next Giant Leap from 2009 through 2012. He spent a little over 3 years at the job.

                          Pavlovski was responsible for leading corporate donations, sponsorships, and internet marketing strategies. He has a versatile background as NGL is a company that specializes in the exploration of space, and looks forward to providing commercial lunar transport services. They hope to return to the moon as a provider of these services as well as transportation to asteroids.

                          8. He got his start at Microsoft
                          Chris was employed at the Microsoft Corporation. He served the tech giant as a junior network administrator from January 2001 through June of 2001. He left after 6 months of employment, but this was also the same year that he launched his own business, Cosmic Development, in the global IT industry.

                          9. He is highly educated
                          The same year that Mr. Pavolvski founded Cosmic Development, he also enrolled in a course at the University of Toronto Mississauga in Canada. He attended the university from 2001 through 2006, spending 5 years studying.

                          Chris does not list the degrees that he earned at the institution on any of his commercial sites, nor does he share his program of study, but he was likely involved in some aspect of computer/IT administration or some other area of technology.

                          This indicates that he is a humble person who doesn’t feel the need to talk about himself or his accomplishments. These are apparent in the number of successes he’s had in his entrepreneurial endeavors.

                            I hope Rumble doesn’t run out of money before fully penetrating the market. It’s looking like a tight race.
