Elon Musk


(FreedomWire.org) – Tesla CEO Elon Musk is throwing his support behind former President Trump if the 76-year-old is arrested by the Manhattan DA next week. 

In a tweet, Musk predicted that Trump would win in a landslide victory in the 2024 presidential election. 

Musk was replying to a tweet from conservative user @KaladinFree, who suggested Trump should be thrown out of the 2024 race. 

On Saturday, the former president took to his Truth Social account, predicting he will be indicted on Tuesday over claims he paid Stormy Daniels to keep quiet over their alleged affair. 

Calling the Left-wing DA’s office motive against Trump “corrupt and highly political,” he claimed the probe is a way to get him out of the presidential race, which he has currently been leading in the polls. 

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) also predicted this stunt would have Trump “win even bigger than he is already going to,” adding that any Republican who doesn’t support the president will be “exposed, remembered, scorned and punished” by the party. 

Additionally, lawyer Alan Dershowitz criticized Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s witch hunt against Trump, saying that if the former president were indicted, it would be a “targeted injustice.” 

“All decent people, whether politically opposed to Mr. Trump (as I am) or supportive of his candidacy, should be concerned about this weaponizing of the prosecutor’s office for the political purpose of preventing a potential candidate from running for office,” Dershowitz wrote in an article for New York The Sun. “Today, this insidious tactic is being used by a Democratic prosecutor against a Republican candidate. In 2016, efforts were made to use it against the Democratic candidate.”

(FreedomWire.org) – The Global Times, a news outlet owned by the Chinese Communist Party, warned Twitter CEO Elon Musk against sharing and supporting the theory that COVID-19 originated from a 2019 Wuhan, China lab leak.

The tech billionaire posted tweets that promoted the Wuhan lab leak theory following a U.S. Department of Energy report that called it likely that COVID’s origins can be traced back to the Wuhan lab.

The state-owned Global Times wrote that Musk was “breaking the pot of China,” which is a phrase similar to “biting the hand that feeds you.” The CCP-owned outlet went on to note that Musk’s Tesla has an “expansive factory campus in Shanghai, and China is the electric vehicle manufacturer’s second largest market.”

The media publication suggested Musk’s tweets supportive of the lab leak theory were slanderous and hostile to China. The outlet explained they were warning Musk about his China-related tweets and attacked him for potentially hurting investment into the country. “This warning comes as Chinese officials, both on a high level as well as on a lower level of the government are really to pulling out all the stops and try to attract U.S. investment into China. The directive has come all the way from the top, President Xi Jinping, who has been saying that there should be greater effort to attract more and welcome more foreign capital as well as more foreign investment.”

On Sunday, Musk made headlines after he accused Anthony Fauci, the former Chief Medical Advisor to President Biden, of funding gain-of-function research at the Wuhan lab. Musk alleged Fauci funded gain-of-function “via a pass-through organization (EcoHealth).”

The Twitter and Tesla CEO sarcastically acted surprised when responding to a tweet that reported the U.S. Energy Department’s Wuhan lab theory. “What!? No way,” he wrote.

With Sunday’s report, the energy department joined the FBI in concluding that COVID-19 could be traced back to Wuhan. The Chinese government has continued to deny any Wuhan leak theory and has pushed a narrative suggesting COVID-19 originated outside of their country’s borders.

(FreedomWire.org) – Twitter CEO Elon Musk made a surprise visit to the U.S. Capitol on Thursday to meet with House Speaker Kevin McCarthy and House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries.

Musk traveled to Capitol Hill on Thursday and met with House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to discuss how Twitter can be “fair to both parties,” Musk said on his social media platform.

Musk noted he also met with House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY). The meeting with Jeffries may have been unplanned, as McCarthy reportedly offered to introduce the pair while they were both in his office, according to the Hill.

“Just met with @SpeakerMcCarthy & @RepJeffries to discuss ensuring that this platform is fair to both parties,” he tweeted.

In addition to meeting with McCarthy and Jeffries, Musk also met with Judiciary Committee chair Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH). Jordan spent nearly an hour with Musk.

Jordan, who will also chair the Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, has said he plans to delve into the “Twitter files,” including their revelation that the FBI paid Twitter $3.4 million for working with the agency.

When McCarthy exited the meeting with Musk he declined to discuss what the meeting entailed. He told the reporters that the tech mogul wished the Speaker a happy birthday.

“He came to wish me a happy birthday,” he told reporters, who turned 58 Thursday.

McCarthy said he did not discuss the debt ceiling that recently exceeded $31.4 trillion, and ignored all other questions related to the matter, Bloomberg reported. The press did not witness Musk leave the meeting or the building after their appointment together on the second floor ended.

Musk is a longtime donor of McCarthy and expressed support for him stepping up as speaker during the tumultuous, days-long speaker vote among members of the House. The California Republican finally became speaker after 15 ballots.

The tech mogul has become a popular figure among the political right since urging people to vote Republican and voting for candidates of the party for the first time in the special election held in Texas’ 34th district. He publicly shared that he cast his ballot for Republican Texas Rep. Mayra Flores.

He further became a vocal proponent for free speech amid his $44 billion purchase and eventual takeover of Twitter. He later reinstated the account of former President Donald Trump following a public poll calling for his return.

(FreedomWire.org) – On Thursday Democrat Adam Schiff, whose party will no longer control the House come January, made several false claims about rising abuse on Twitter since Musk has implemented looser speech policies.

Schiff tweeted: “On Elon Musk’s Twitter: – Slurs against Black people have tripled – Slurs against women are up 33% – Slurs against Jewish people are up 61% – And slurs against gay men are up 58% These numbers are abysmal – and unacceptable. Today, @RepMarkTakano and I are demanding action.”

Twitter boss Elon Musk appears to have settled into his new role rather well. In fact, he appears even to have time to help run some of the platform’s fact-checking operations.

Musk replied: False, hate speech impressions are actually down by 1/3 for Twitter now vs prior to acquisition @CommunityNotes.”

Last week, Musk also published a graphic showing that since his takeover, hate speech incidents have fallen considerably.

“Hate speech impressions (# of times tweet was viewed) continue to decline, despite significant user growth! @TwitterSafety will publish data weekly. Freedom of speech doesn’t mean freedom of reach. Negativity should & will get less reach than positivity,” he wrote.

(FreedomWire.org) – Fox News star Kayleigh McEnany put the Dem Party and their friends in the mainstream media on notice saying it is a ‘big deal’ Elon Musk is willing to release secret internal Twitter discussions about the decision to censor the New York Post’s story on Hunter Biden’s laptop.

Kayleigh McEnany replied to Musk:

“Big deal – @elonmusk responding to a request to “make public all internal discussions about the decision to censor the @NYPost’s story on Hunter Biden’s laptop.”

“I was Press Sec at the time when Twitter also banned my personal account after sharing the story Would love answers!”

Musk said the more he learns about what was going on at Twitter before he took over regarding censorship, especially censorship of conservative voices, ‘the worse it gets’

A Twitter user asked Musk: “Raise your hand if you think @ElonMusk should make public all internal discussions about the decision to censor the @NYPost’s story on Hunter Biden’s laptop before the 2020 Election in the interest of Transparency.”

Musk said: “This is necessary to restore public trust.” He continued: “The more I learn, the worse it gets. The world should know the truth of what has been happening at Twitter.

“Transparency will earn the trust of the people.

“It is objectively the case that “conservative” political candidates were more negatively affected than “progressive” candidates.

“Anyone using Twitter knows this. Question is simply one of magnitude.

(FreedomWire.org) – President Joe Biden said on Wednesday that he supports his administration scrutinizing billionaire Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter but laughed off the idea of congressional Republicans investigating his son’s illicit activities.

During a White House press conference, he was first asked about the prospect of investigating Musk’s purchase.

“Mr. President, do you think Elon Musk is a threat to U.S. national security? And should the U.S. — and with the tools you have — investigate his joint acquisition of Twitter with foreign governments, which include the Saudis?” a reporter said.

“I think that Elon Musk’s cooperation and/or technical relationships with other countries is worthy of being looked at. Whether or not he is doing anything inappropriate, I’m not suggesting that. I’m suggesting that it’s worth being looked at. But that’s all I’ll say,” the president replied.

CBS News notes that although “Musk financed much of the purchase through his own fortune,” an estimated $7.1 billion “was provided by equity investors including fellow billionaire Larry Ellison as well as foreign sources,” including Saudi Arabia.

That said, there’s no evidence suggesting that there’s anything nefarious about his equity relationship with “foreign sources,” as noted by critics.

It’s ironic because during the same press conference in which the president suggested Musk may be up to no good, he turned around and dismissed congressional Republicans’ concerns about his crack-smoking son Hunter’s history of shady business dealings.

“What’s your message to Republicans who are considering investigating your family and, particularly, your son Hunter’s business dealings?” a reporter asked him.

“Lots of luck in your senior year, as my coach used to say. Look, I think the American public want us to move on and get things done for them. And, you know, I heard that it was reported … many times that Republicans were saying, and the former president said, ‘How many times are you going to impeach Biden?’” the president replied.

“I mean, I think the — I think the American people will look at all of that for what it is. It’s just almost comedy. I mean, it’s — but, you know, look, I can’t control what they’re going to do. All I can do is continue to try to make life better for the American people,” he added.

(FreedomWire.org) – Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York continued her feud with Twitter’s Elon Musk Thursday suggesting that Musk has targeted her account as payback for her recent flurry of contentious tweets about him.

“I was at a community event in the Bronx in Coop City, and when I get home, I see a text from my team saying ‘Hey let us know if you need any help with this Elon stuff,’” she said in between bites of food in an Instagram story.

“And I was like ‘What?’ So I pull up my Twitter app, and it’s like, gone. Like when you pull up your mentions and stuff, it’s just like literally it’s a blank screen. Totally gone. And I was like ‘Hmm, that’s weird.’ So it turns out we got under a certain little billionaire’s skin,” she said.

“So then, he decides to like tweet a screenshot of our campaign store because our sweatshirts are like $50 to $58 as some kind of like ‘Gotcha’ that like other people pay money for goods, emphasis on ‘real goods’ in the world,” Ocasio-Cortez continued.

“But here’s the thing is that unlike Elon Musk, all the workers with our campaign, our campaign is unionized. We pay full health care. We have other benefits like childcare stipends,” she said.

AOC said the alleged censorship came after she criticized Musk for wanting to charge users $8 a month in order to be verified. Musk simply replied, “Your feedback is appreciated, now pay $8.”

Ocasio-Cortez then defended the pricey sweatshirts she sells in her campaign store, which Musk had criticized during their past two days of Twittersphere zingers at each other.

“The claim appears to be at odds with her own online merchandise store which explicitly states that ‘purchases are campaign contributions,’” the site reported in its fact-checking expedition.

Ocasio-Cortez has since posted a screenshot showing her verified notification tab is empty. She said she was unaware Musk had responded to her because she has not been getting notifications. It is possible that due to Musk’s response from Wednesday, it has crashed her notifications due to high number of users interacting with the thread.

Musk has defended the idea to charge money for users to be verified because he says it will make Twitter profitable and give users better perks, including paying users.

Twitter users weighed in on the dispute between Musk and AOC.

(FreedomWire.com) – In his latest move Musk called out Hillary Clinton for sharing a LA Times article that aimed to paint Paul Pelosi’s “attacker” David DePape as a far-right conspiracy theorist.

Elon’s now deleted tweet  that the Speaker of the House’s husband may have actually been in a confrontation with a gay male prostitute.

Musk would respond to Clinton by tweeting “There is a tiny possibility there might be more to this story than meets the eye” and then proceed to link an article titled “The Awful Truth: Paul Pelosi Was Drunk Again, And In a Dispute With a Male Prostitute Early Friday Morning.”

42-year-old David DePape was arrested after police, responding to a wellness check Friday morning, discovered him and Pelosi in their underwear, struggling over a hammer on the floor of his San Francisco, California home.

The original link to the article was scrubbed from Google but here’s a quote from the archived version of the article:

As SF’s gay bars closed at 2 am, two gay men met in a bar and went home together. Happens every night in the City by the Bay. Except one of these two men, was married to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

It’s been a rumor for years in SF that Paul Pelosi is gay. David Depape is said to be a Castro Nudist. “The lunatic who allegedly assaulted Paul Pelosi is a Berkeley resident and a ‘Former Castro Nudist Protester’.

Police dispatch records reveal “Pelosi stated there’s a male in the home and that he’s going to wait for his wife. RP stated that he doesn’t know who the male is but he advised that his name is David and that he is a friend.”

DePape was discovered to live in Berkeley, about 20 minutes away from San Francisco. According to neighbors and other people familiar with him, he’s a “hippie” and a “nudist activist.” However, reporters were instructed to not mention this.

After the Los Angeles Times reported that DePape spread Q-Anon conspiracy theories, the former secretary of state wrote on Twitter: ​​”The Republican Party and its mouthpieces now regularly spread hate and deranged conspiracy theories. It is shocking, but not surprising, that violence is the result. As citizens, we must hold them accountable for their words and the actions that follow.”

The information Hillary Clinton used to smear Republicans is very questionable.

The websites that started these rumors were scraped after the attack on Friday. They were taken down on Saturday!

On Sunday news broke that David DePape was in Paul Pelosi’s bedroom.

For some reason that piece of information did not leak out until Sunday, three days after the attack.

(FreedomWire.org) – The Biden regime is clearly threatened by Musk’s moves. Bloomberg reports that the Biden administration is weighing a “national security” review of Musk’s business ventures, including his Twitter deal and Starlink. This is Biden’s idea of “democracy,” apparently.

Officials in the Biden government “and intelligence community are weighing what tools, if any, are available that would allow the federal government to review Musk’s ventures,” the report said.

Elon Musk has been a hero to liberals for years. He pretty much single handedly created a real market for electric cars and is aiming to become a clean energy superpower using solar panels and battery storage. He supported Democrats both rhetorically and financially until recently, and was well regarded as a success story.

This year and last he has put twice as much mass into orbit than the rest of world combined. His Starlink internet service is so revolutionary that Ukraine might be losing the war with Russia if it did not have access to the system. He donated the use of Starlink free of charge.

The Left, now has turned on him. And it can all be traced to something that has happened over the past year: Elon fell out of love with the Left, and they are returning the favor big time. In April Musk made his troubled bid to buy Twitter in order to turn it back into a free speech friendly site, criticizing the politically motivated censorship that the election season and COVID accelerated.

In May Musk told his followers that he was voting Republican because Democrats had become the Party of division and hate.

“In the past I voted Democrat, because they were (mostly) the kindness party,” Musk wrote.

He then bashed the Democratic Party, writing: “But they have become the party of division & hate, so I can no longer support them and will vote Republican.”

“Now, watch their dirty tricks campaign against me unfold,” Musk wrote, adding a popcorn emoji to his tweet.

It is in this context that you should understand what was just revealed. The dirty tricks campaign is on full display, and the MSM and the Left are all in on destroying Musk entirely.

News hit the wire today that the Biden Administration is considering labeling Musk a National Security threat and subjecting all his deals to federal reviews on that basis.

Biden administration officials are discussing whether the US should subject some of Elon Musk’s ventures to national security reviews, including the deal for Twitter Inc. and SpaceX’s Starlink satellite network, according to people familiar with the matter.

Twitter shares fell 5.1% as the market opened in New York on Friday.

US officials have grown uncomfortable over Musk’s recent threat to stop supplying the Starlink satellite service to Ukraine — he said it had cost him $80 million so far — and what they see as his increasingly Russia-friendly stance following a series of tweets that outlined peace proposals favorable to President Vladimir Putin. They are also concerned by his plans to buy Twitter with a group of foreign investors.

The discussions are still at an early stage, the people familiar said on condition of anonymity. Officials in the US government and intelligence community are weighing what tools, if any, are available that would allow the federal government to review Musk’s ventures.

One possibility is through the law governing the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States to review Musk’s deals and operations for national security risks, they said.

Now you have to understand how ridiculous this is on so many levels. NASA and the US military have been relying on SpaceX as a major partner in expanding our presence in space and as a potential provider of transportation services to the military. They have viewed SpaceX as a partner, and rightly so. For years the US government relied upon Russia of all countries to bolster our access to space, and now they have an American company providing the most reliable, inexpensive, and rapid access to space available in world history.

NASA has worked for a decade, spent billions, and can’t launch Artemis into space. Yet SpaceX can do it cheaply and reliably almost on demand.

There is one and only one reason the Biden Administration is doing this, and it ain’t concerns about national security. SpaceX has done more than any non-government entity to prop up Ukraine in its war with Russia, and all they asked for was a little consideration given how much they have invested. How about helping them not bleed cash by having the US government start picking up the tab, as they do with literally every other company supporting the war effort?

This is about Musk’s no longer supporting Democrats, as he did financially for years. He is now giving donations to Republicans and the response of the Biden Administration is to turn the full force of the US Security state against one of their most important partners. This is exactly what fascists do: make everybody bend their knee to the state and party, and it is utterly anti-American.

Forcing businesses and businessmen to comply to the political whims of the party in power is vile and in a normal political environment beyond the pale.

But not in Joe Biden’s America.

(FreedomWire.org) – Elon Musk announced Wednesday he that voted for a Mexican-American immigrant for Congress and was accused of upholding “white supremacy” by a black Democrat.

Musk, who was born and raised in South Africa, announced Wednesday that for the “first time” ever voting Republican, he voted for Mayra Flores.

“Massive red wave in 2022,” Musk added.

His tweet to anger Democratic New York Rep. Jamaal Bowman, who accused Musk of upholding white supremacy.

“Elon Musk is not a leader,” Bowman tweeted. “He’s just another Republican billionaire who supports white supremacy and authoritarianism because he doesn’t want his workers to unionize or to pay his fair share in taxes. The GOP just tried to end democracy and now he’s supporting them.”

Musk, who has described himself as a long-time Democrat, announced in May he would vote Republican in the upcoming midterms.

“In the past I voted Democrat, because they were (mostly) the kindness party,” Musk tweeted recently. “But they have become the party of division & hate, so I can no longer support them and will vote Republican. Now, watch their dirty tricks campaign against me unfold.”
