  • Bill Ackman post on X

    X ^ | Bill Ackman
    A friend who supports Biden and hates Trump complained to me this morning that I am being narcissistic by sharing my views publicly on the presidential election, and that I should keep my views to myself.I explained to my friend that part of being a good citizen is participating in the political process. If one believes that one candidate is materially better for the country than another, one should advocate in any way that they can for that candidate. This is not narcissism. It is patriotism. All of us have an obligation to stand up and be counted.

    I have been waiting for quite a while to see the war between Elon Musk and the European Union break out into the open. Ever since Elon bought Twitter the Establishment has been panicked by their loss of control over the Narrative™, and they have been making noises about pushing Twitter/X out of Europe or imposing fines if Musk doesn't shut down free speech on his platform. The Elite have been waging an open financial war on the platform, driving advertisers away and trying (and failing) to come up with competitors that will drive Twitter/X out of the market. The...

    Just the News ^ | 7/10/24 | Greg Piper
    The leader of the World Federation of Advertisers' Global Alliance for Responsible Media falsely claimed it did not direct its members to blacklist Twitter after Elon Musk purchased the platform, since renamed X, according to a House Judiciary Committee GOP interim staff report. Rob Rakowitz's claim during his transcribed interview with the committee is contradicted by a GARM member's documentation of "discussions about the boycott, noting that the company had pulled advertisements from Twitter based on GARM's recommendations," a committee press release Monday says. The report documents how GARM "participated in boycotts and coordinated action to demonetize platforms, podcasts, news...

  • South Dakota Gov. Noem's official social media accounts seem to disappear without explanation

    ABC AP ^ | 07 08 2024 | Staff
    Longstanding official social media accounts belonging to South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem appear to have been deleted without explanation. The accounts on Facebook, Instagram and X, the site formerly known as Twitter, had reached hundreds of thousands of followers. As of Monday, links to them on the governor's official website led to pages that said the accounts were no longer active. A fourth link from the governor's website to her official YouTube page remained active, as did Noem's personal accounts on Facebook, Instagram and X. A new X account for the governor's office was created this month and had just...

    The Federalist ^ | April 13, 2021 | Margot Cleveland
    The modern democracy desired by Saturday’s participants is one our corporate and ivory tower overlords control, rather than the peons in red states.On Saturday, 100 big business leaders joined a Zoom call to plot a unified response to voting-integrity legislation pending in many states, similar to a law recently passed in Georgia. While billed as “non-partisan” efforts to defend voting rights and democracy, the players involved, their preferred policies, and the undemocratic pressure they seek to exert proves the virtual gathering was nothing of the sort.CBS News’ Ed O’Keefe first confirmed the existence of the call on Saturday, identifying American...
  • Audio Proof Biden’s Regime Was Behind the Mar-a-Lago Raid

    Independent Sentinel ^ | June 9, 2024 | M DOWLING
    Judicial Watch published proof that the entire government was involved in the Mar-a-Lago raid. They refused to give Donald Trump a heads-up as they did with Joe Biden, who actually did commit a documented crime. This information came out last month, but it’s still relevant.The recording was uncovered in an October 2022 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Department of Homeland Security for all communications of the U.S. Secret Service internally and with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) regarding the raid on President Trump’s home and for any video or audio recordings made during the raid on...
  • Elon Musk’s Supreme Court petition is a window into how a leftist 'justice' system works

    American Thinker ^ | 8 Jun, 2024 | Janice Edgar-West
    The special prosecutor’s overreach and the trial judge’s open bias are equally disturbing. Just when you thought the “swamp” judicial system could sink no lower, an Elon Musk-X petition to the Supreme Court reminds us about Jack Smith’s and a leftist judge’s complete disrespect for Americans’ constitutional freedom from intrusive government searches. The information emerges in X Corp.’s petition for a writ of certiorari relating to a court order arising from a search warrant that special counsel, Mr. Jack Smith (yes, that one), served on X demanding data and records from former President Donald Trump’s Twitter account. The problem from...

    The social media platform X has updated its policies to formally allow pornography on the site. “We believe that users should be able to create, distribute, and consume material related to sexual themes as long as it is consensually produced and distributed,” the platform said in a recent update. “Sexual expression, whether visual or written, can be a legitimate form of artistic expression,” it added. “We believe in the autonomy of adults to engage with and create content that reflects their own beliefs, desires, and experiences, including those related to sexuality.”

    The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is the most famous of the 18 US government agencies that comprise the Intelligence Community (IC) of the United States of America. Unlike the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), the law strictly prohibits CIA employees or contractors from spying upon or running clandestine operations against American citizens on US soil. But now, a new Twitter Files investigation reveals that a member of the Board of Trustees of the CIA’s mission-driven venture capital firm and ostensibly “former” IC and CIA analysts were involved in a 2021-2022 effort to take over Twitter’s content management system. The effort...

The layoffs followed federal probes filed by Republican Attorneys General Ken Paxton of Texas and Andrew Bailey of Missouri into the outlet for possible fraudulent activity by allegedly manipulating data on “X,” formerly known as Twitter.

A tainted brand if there ever was one. Associated by many with mass censorship, election interference and wokeness.

    The Conversation ^ | May 9, 2024 | Paul Reilly Senior Lecturer in Communications, Media and Democracy, University of Glasgow
    On May 16 the world will mark the UN International Day of Living Together in Peace. It is a rallying call for people to listen respectfully to others and promote tolerance and understanding. Perhaps someone should tell tech entrepreneurs Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk. The online platforms they head up – Facebook, Instagram, Twitter/X – have become synonymous with fake news, hate speech, misinformation and other online harms. Social media has been widely blamed for destabilising democracies and fomenting civil unrest in Europe and North America. In July 2023, the French president, Emmanuel Macron, proposed restricting access to online platforms...

    Australia’s prime minister has labelled X’s owner, Elon Musk, an “arrogant billionaire who thinks he is above the law”as the rift deepens between Australia and the tech platform over the removal of videos of a violent stabbing in a Sydney church. On Monday evening in an urgent last-minute federal court hearing, the court ordered a two-day injunction against X to hide posts globally containing the footage of the alleged stabbing of Bishop Mar Mari Emmanuel on 15 April. The eSafety commissioner had previously directed X to remove the posts, but X had only blocked them from access in Australia pending...
