    Comedian Larry David, the Seinfeld co-creator and Curb Your Enthusiasm star, reportedly screamed at billionaire Elon Musk over his ties to the Republican Party. The incident reportedly occurred at Hollywood mogul Ari Emanuel’s high-profile wedding in Saint-Tropez, France last year. David even officiated Emanuel’s marriage to fashion designer Sarah Staudinger. Author Walter Isaacson writes in his new biography, Elon Musk, that David “seemed to be fuming” during the encounter. “Do you just want to murder kids in schools?” David reportedly asked Musk, a reference to the horrific shooting in Uvalde, Texas, wherein 19 children and two teachers were murdered.

    Former President Donald Trump will appear with striking union members of the United Auto Workers (UAW) in Detroit, Michigan, as his opponents squabble for the spotlight on the debate stage on September 27, according to a report that multiple sources have confirmed to Breitbart News. The New York Times first reported on Trump’s forthcoming appearance with Detroit auto workers striking against the big three automakers — General Motors, Ford, and Stellantis — which will serve as counter-programming to the GOP debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California.The GOP frontrunner will deliver a “prime-time speech before current...

    Last week, the United Auto Workers union launched strikes against the Big Three American auto companies, General Motors (GM), Ford, and Stellantis, after they failed to reach an agreement on increasing wages and providing other benefits. According to Breitbart, one of the leading causes for the strike is the impact that President Biden's electric vehicle mandate is having on the industry. As previously reported by the DC Enquirer, American car companies are trying to keep up with Biden's EV push but it has led to companies like Ford being forced to lay off workers as billions of dollars in losses...
  • 'Our Tesla insurance is DOUBLE what we pay for our gas car!' Married couple is shocked to discover high cost of covering electric vehicles - so why DO insurers penalize eco-drivers?

    'When they're damaged, the cost of repair is higher,' she said. Since electric cars have fewer components, when one does fail its more expensive to replace. That means insurers may prefer writing off a car over repairing it. Unlike in the past when a windshield could be replaced with relative ease, the sensors that go into them now mean traditionally simple repairs have become longwinded and expensive. That also means they can take a while, leaving the insurance company responsible for renting a replacement car for the customer for even longer periods. 'If an electric vehicle is involved in a...

    A Tesla burst into flames on a busy highway on Monday in the Southern Highlands region of Australia, sending firefighters on a difficult mission to battle the blaze. The fire started after the electric vehicle built by Elon Musk’s company hit debris that fell off another vehicle. The Tesla Model 3, which costs upwards of $60,000, likely caught on fire due to a lithium battery that was damaged after a piece of debris fell from a truck onto the battery shell, according to a report by Daily Mail. Both the driver and passenger of the Tesla were thankfully able to...

    A new report accuses the space agency of a lack of transparency regarding the cost of its SLS program.NASA has come under heat for the increasing cost of its Space Launch System (SLS) rocket, which space agency officials have finally admitted to being unsustainable and unaffordable, a new report revealed. The Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a report on Thursday that heavily criticized NASA for its lack of transparency regarding the true cost of the SLS program, which has already gone $6 billion over budget. The SLS rocket launched on November 16, 2022 for the Artemis 1 mission, sending an...

    Tesla CEO Elon Musk says fellow entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy is a "promising" 2024 GOP presidential candidate. "He is a very promising candidate," Musk wrote on social media in reference to an interview Ramaswamy did Thursday with conservative pundit Tucker Carlson. In the interview, Ramaswamy discussed foreign policy, the importance of truth and him being the youngest Republican candidate in the race. Ramaswamy is the first millennial to run for U.S. president as a Republican and has made a lot of his messaging toward young people and bringing back American pride. "We are hungry for a cause," he stated during a...
  • Elon Musk Appears to Switch Sides From DeSantis to Ramaswamy

    Just months after helping GOP presidential candidate Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla) announce his campaign, Elon Musk appears to switch sides, bonding over the failing American dream with 2024 candidate Vivek Ramaswamy. During a Twitter Spaces interview, Musk complimented Ramaswamy, calling him a "very promising candidate" as they both agreed the elite's ongoing anti-American efforts are "insane." Ramaswamy said everyone should be proud to be an American, condemning progressive Democrat's "self-destructive" efforts to undermine the Constitution. He told Musk that he is concerned his sons will never have the opportunity to achieve the American dream so long as Democrats keep control...

    The U.S. is turning to a much-criticized source as it races to secure supplies of battery metals to meet the growing demand for electric vehicles. To do so, it is homing in on cobalt from the Democratic Republic of Congo’s informal mining sector, where miners, sometimes including children, often work with no safety equipment in dangerous, hand-dug mines. Congo supplies around 70% of the world’s cobalt, a key metal in the lithium-ion batteries used in EVs, with about a third of that coming from these so-called artisanal miners. The U.S. Agency for International Development said earlier this year that it...

    BENGALURU, Aug 23 (Reuters) - An Indian spacecraft landed on the moon on Wednesday, the space agency said, in a mission seen as crucial to lunar exploration and India's standing as a space power, just days after a similar Russian lander crashed. For India, the successful landing marks its emergence as a space power as the government looks to spur investment in private space launches and related satellite-based businesses.

    After test-driving one for an entire week, we learned we will never buy a Tesla or any electric vehicle as long as we have the option of gas-powered cars or even hybrids. ********************************************************* While planning a week-long trip to the Seattle area recently, I wondered aloud to my husband if we should rent a Tesla. Neither of us had ever driven an electric vehicle before. The price difference between the long-range Tesla Model 3 and a standard mid-size gas-fueled vehicle was pretty negligible. We agreed it would be an interesting learning experience despite our objections to the eco-agenda to phase...

    Republican Sens. Tom Cotton of Arkansas and Marco Rubio of Florida are teaming up to push the Biden administration to review the planned acquisition of Forbes magazine. The pair sent a letter Wednesday to Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen warning her that the planned buyout involves entities tied to Russia and the Chinese Communist Party, which previously tried to purchase the outlet. "Forbes reportedly holds a significant market share among younger Americans, with tens of millions of monthly users," the lawmakers wrote. "This puts Forbes in a unique position to collect and store sensitive personal data on these populations and influence...

The vehicle, which had been salvaged from flooding in Florida, had been sitting idle in the yard for several months when it caught fire last week.

    An Arizona man says he was trapped in his Tesla in the extreme heat after the power died and he didn't know how to escape. Investigators at Scripps News Phoenix found dozens of drivers have filed complaints with federal auto safety regulators who are urging car owners to learn how to manually get out in an emergency. "It's definitely a safety concern; it was one of the hotter days," said 73-year-old Rick Meggison. He said he was stuck in his Tesla Model Y in his garage back in June. "I couldn't open the doors. I couldn't lower the windows. The...

    An “unidentified electric vehicle” — actually a Tesla Model Y — accused of siphoning power from the local electric utility energized the gossip mill in the small eastern Montana town of Ekalaka last week, prompting front page newspaper coverage, a frantic apology and, in the end, much jawboning about the future of transportation in one of the most remote counties in the lower 48 states. Driver Chad Lauterbach said in an interview after the fact that he and his girlfriend, Allis Markham, had driven up from Los Angeles to volunteer at the county museum’s annual dinosaur festival.

    When an average person say they’re thinking about buying something huge, they’re probably not really going to do it. When mega-billionaire Elon Musk says he’s thinking about it, he probably already has the ball rolling. That’s why his latest Tweet about purchasing something is possibly more than just fodder for his social media fans. So is Musk going to buy Fox News? CNN? Both? We’ll see, but speculation is already ramping up.
