A few decades ago, Howard Hughes was the enigma. In today’s terms, a likely billionaire. An inventor, risk taker, playboy and, in the end, an utter mystery. Now we have Elon Musk in much the same vein, only he is much more fun to watch. (My opinion, of course.)
Mr. Musk has been instrumental in industrializing and bringing to market critical technologies. Space X, Tesla, Neuralink, Boring, Paypal, and a couple of others are products of his imagination and risk-taking behavior. Mr. Musk’s latest adventure is his purchase – or is it a purchase? – of the openly radical left managed Twitter.
Twitter’s top executives have admitted to being communists and socialists and also using that platform to undermine anything conservative or, frankly, pro-American. These executives have openly condemned freedom of speech as well as Musk himself. (Thank God for Project Veritas as they exposed all of this.)
Musk has recently held up completing his purchase of Twitter claiming that they were fudging the amount of bot/spam traffic. Twitter management says bot/spam traffic is about 5%. Musk has suggested as much as 20% or even quite a bit more. This is not an insignificant issue as Twitter stock prices, as well as ad revenue, are predicated on “live consumers”. Current and future corporate value claims could very well be bogus. (Now I don’t know what the impact of bot/spam fraud would be but I suspect there are a lot of lawyers just waiting for an opportunity to test the water here.)
Just the other day, Mr. Musk was accused of #MeToo sexual harassment which he immediately denied and suggested that the accusation should be viewed through a political lens. (Mr. Musk recently said, “In the past I voted Democrat because they were mostly the kindness party. But they have become the party of division and hate, so I can no longer support them and will vote Republican. Now watch their dirty tricks campaign against me unfold.” And right on cue, #MeToo.)
Mr. Musk strongly advocates freedom of speech. The people who oppose him aren’t. They are for the great reset which would tear America down and put in her place some type of global authoritarian dictatorship. (The constant destructive activities of the Biden regime and Democrat leaders, in general, aren’t accidental. They aren’t a mistake of bad policy. They are deliberate.)
It appears that the contest is Musk in one corner and the Ministry of Lies in the other. My bet is on Musk.
