  • Elon Musk’s SEC twitter taunts may backfire

    The settlement between Tesla and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission stipulates that CEO Elon Musk will no longer have free reign to tweet. Yet on Friday, Musk fired off another damn-the-consequences tweet, calling the SEC the “shortseller enrichment committee.” Whoops! We couldn't access this Tweet. What gives? Even though Musk’s Twitter post appears to violate the spirit of the recent settlement, the SEC is largely powerless to stop Musk’s tirades until the settlement is approved by Federal Judge Alison Nathan of the Southern District of New York, which could take several weeks. She has asked Tesla and the SEC...

    Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has reportedly reached a settlement with the Securities and Exchange Commission after his abandoned attempt to the company private. As a result of the settlement, which is still subject to court approval, Musk will have to step down from his role as chairman for at least three years and pay a civil penalty of $20 million, CNBC reported Saturday. Tesla will also have to pay a $20 million if the settlement is approved. DEVELOPING

    Regulators accuse him of misleading shareholders when he said he had funding for a corporate buyout Securities regulators on Thursday sued Elon Musk for fraud and sought to remove him from Tesla Inc., TSLA -0.67% raising doubts about the future of an electric-car maker synonymous with the audacious entrepreneur. The SEC’s lawsuit—sparked by Mr. Musk’s August comments that he had lined up funding for a corporate buyout—seeks civil penalties against Mr. Musk and asks a court to bar him from being the officer or director of a public company.

    A multi-million kroner money laundering case at Danske Bank’s Estonian branch could be investigated by US authorities. The Justice Department, Treasury Department and Securities and Exchange Commission are each examining Danske Bank over the allegations of money laundering flows, according to a report by the Wall Street Journal. The investigations are the result of a complaint made by a confidential whistleblower to US authorities more than two years ago, according to a person familiar with the matter and documents reviewed by the WSJ, the newspaper writes. In early August, the Danish state prosecutor’s office for serious economic and international crime...

    Elon Musk was at home in Los Angeles, struggling to maintain his composure. “This past year has been the most difficult and painful year of my career,” he said. “It was excruciating.” The year has only gotten more intense for Musk, chairman and chief executive of the electric-car maker Tesla, since he abruptly declared on Twitter last week that he hoped to convert the publicly traded company into a private one. The episode kicked off a furor in the markets and within Tesla itself, and he acknowledged Thursday that he was fraying. At multiple points in an hourlong interview with...

    Sanity: Without question, President Obama and his administration were the biggest enemies of the fossil fuel industry in the history of our country. Never mind that fossil fuels (along with innovation) were responsible for transforming the United States into the world’s leading economic power. Obama was dead-set on destroying the industry in lieu of some ‘clean energy’ nirvana that is decades away from reality, given the pace of technological development in that industry.

    If this were Donald Trump’s campaign, we’re sure this would be breaking news everywhere. But, since it has nothing to do with Trump and everything to do with the Clinton machine, the mainstream media’s silence on the matter makes it clear they’re not interested in honesty or truth. According to Fox News, “The Committee to Defend the President, a political action committee, filed its complaint with the FEC on Monday with the allegations that the Hillary Victory Fund (HVF) solicited cash from big-name donors, including Calvin Klein and ‘Family Guy’ creator Seth MacFarlane — money that was allegedly sent through...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court gave presidents more control over key jobs in federal agencies on Thursday, ruling that the way the Securities and Exchange Commission selected in-house judges who enforce investor protection laws violated the U.S. Constitution. The justices agreed with President Donald Trump’s administration that the SEC, in having low-level staff install administrative law judges, infringed upon powers given to the president in the U.S. Constitution’s “appointments clause” regarding the filling of certain federal posts. The ruling could reverberate through the federal government, which has nearly 2,000 administrative law judges who....

    The inmates are running the asylum and locking up the guards. When the media first began to spin the raid on the president's lawyer, they claimed that it had been approved by a Trump appointee. Of course it hadn't. It came from Rosenstein on one end. And Trump's appointee had recused himself. That left his deputy, an Obama holdover. Robert Khuzami. And there are reports that he allegedly made the decision. Khuzami was in charge of SEC enforcement under Obama. He did speak at the RNC convention in '04 in support of the Patriot Act and donated to McCain in...

    Now that the liberal media has apparently hit a dry hole in its effort to make a collusion case against President Trump, the MSM is going to have to get more creative in accusing him of other misdeeds. Joe Scarborough has come up with an innovative idea: charge President Trump with market manipulation for talking down Amazon’s stock price. On today’s Morning Joe, Scarborough said that President Trump: “lies about [Amazon], causes its stock to go down. I’ve watched enough episodes of Billions to know that if you’ve spread lies about a company or product to cause its stock prices...

    Elizabeth Holmes — the Silicon Valley wunderkind whose blood-testing startup Theranos has collapsed in a slew of scandals — has been charged with “massive fraud” by the Securities and Exchange Commission. The SEC on Wednesday accused Theranos CEO Holmes and a top lieutenant of defrauding investors of more than $700 million through false claims about its blood-testing technology. Theranos and 34-year-old Holmes ran “an elaborate, years-long fraud in which they exaggerated or made false statements about the company’s technology, business, and financial performance,” according to the SEC. While Theranos had said it was on track to make $100 million by...

Those text messages, as previously reported, shed new light on the political leanings, unvarnished bias and possibly...

    A very interesting memo from former US Attorney for Manhattan Mary Jo White apparently escaped being smuggled out of the National Archives in Sandy Burglar's pants. It turns out that White, who aggresively prosecutor terrorists responsible for the first WTC attack, told Jamie Gorelick that the infamous wall she built between intelligence and criminal justice would lead to disaster. "This is not an area where it is safe or prudent to build unnecessary walls or to compartmentalize our knowledge of any possible players, plans or activities," wrote White, herself a Clinton appointee.

    Peter Strzok, the top FBI agent under fire for allegedly sending anti-Donald Trump texts, is married to Melissa Hodgman, an official at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. An obituary confirms that Strzok is married to Hodgman, 49, who was named to her position with the SEC in October 2016. Peter Strzok, a top counter-terrorism agent in the FBI, was quietly removed from Robert Mueller’s probe into President Donald Trump and his associates when Mueller learned that Strzok had allegedly sent the texts. “Bosses discovered he and another member of Mueller’s team had exchanged politically charged texts disparaging President Trump...
