What is this man’s game???

I don’t really *believe* the conspiracy theories about Musk being a complete frontman and a shill offering controlled opposition.

Those theories might be true, but I don’t believe them based on the amount of evidence currently being offered.

What I do believe is that Elon has not followed through with anything good thus far, and has left us with blue balls on all of his grand agendas.


Elon Musk has offered to buy Twitter for about \$41 billion in cash, saying the social media company he has often criticized needs to go private to see effective changes.

Musk’s price of \$54.20 per share, which was disclosed in a regulatory filing on Thursday, represents a 38% premium to Twitter’s April 1 close, the last trading day before Tesla CEO’s more than 9% stake in the company was made public.

The billionaire rejected an offer to join Twitter’s board earlier this week after disclosing his stake in the company, a move which analysts said signaled his intention to take over the company as a board seat would have limited his stake to just under 15%.

Since making my investment I now realize the company will neither thrive nor serve this societal imperative in its current form. Twitter needs to be transformed as a private company,” Musk said in a letter to Twitter Chairman Bret Taylor.

Musk, who calls himself a free-speech absolutist, has been critical of the social media platform and its policies, and recently ran a poll on Twitter asking users if they believed the platform adheres to the principle of free speech.

“My offer is my best and final offer and if it is not accepted, I would need to reconsider my position as a shareholder,” Musk added.

Twitter will review Musk’s offer with advice from Goldman Sachs & Co and Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, a source told Reuters.

The company’s shares jumped 12% in premarket trading, while those of Tesla fell about 1%. The total deal value was calculated based on 763.58 million shares outstanding, according to Refinitiv data.


I think we can all say this makes things a bit more interesting.

Frankly, I don’t know enough about any of this to know if this is a real offer that Elon actually believes could be accepted.

What I do know is that control of the narrative that Twitter provides is worth a lot more than \$41 billion, and if a bunch of Jews at Goldman are making the decision, they are probably going to say “no.”

Granted, finance Jews are less woke/liberal/whatever than other Jews, but they are still Jews.

The other thing I know is that regardless of Musk’s titular position as “richest man on earth,” Jews could destroy him if they wanted to. Unless he really decided to go to war. But I don’t think he is a Christian, and I don’t think that someone who isn’t a Christian (or like, a member of some other serious religion, to be fair) is going to be willing to go to war with the Jews.

Elon does have eight kids, and probably has a stake in the future of the earth because of that. But he’s also trying to put computer chips in people’s brains.


We’ll see.

I am not optimistic or even hopeful. But the fact that he is ostensibly getting much more aggressive piqued my interest.

  1. I wonder if Musk got the courtesy phone call from the Clinton Foundation yet, inquiring if a car accident or a plane accident is better for him sometime early next week.

  2. Yet another Savior of Democracy. You can send messages or post videos of whatever you want — just not of Teslas catching fire. (There’s always a catch.)

  3. Notsofast says:

    they have already refused the offer and gone into a poison pill defense where they offer existing share holders stock at a discount to dilute the shares musk buys. he should dump all his stock after they do this, pocket the 28% increase in value since he bought his current shares and drive the share price of twitter into the toilet. at the same time he should announce his intentions to start a rival platform with the proceeds of the sale.

    3. Musk is an absolute known liar and cult figure so why people believe a word out of his plastic-surgery contrived mouth is further evidence that people are brain-washed drones with very little ability to think critically, especially about what famous people tell them.

  10. Those lefty Tweets nicely exemplify the mindset of the Twitter-verse.

    “I would literally delete my account!” (As opposed to figuratively deleting your account?).

    “Me no like… Ban! Ban! BAN!”

    “I’m leaving!” (As if the world will miss your genius)

  11. Seen this brand of virtue signaling before, when the same brand of people threatened to leave the USA just before and during the early days of the Trump presidency. None of them will really leave of course, should the Musk epoch somehow become reality. They will say they are now staying to “resist”. They will continue doing what they do but will also portray themselves as victims, bragging about needing therapy and medication to cope with their agony. The woes of the elite.

    Sources say that AG Merrick Garfinkel and ADL chief Jonathan Greenblatt both sh*t their pants at the same time over this news. The called each other immediately but kept screaming “Oi Vey!” at each other over the phone. After they calmed down they finally decided to intimidate the impudent goy Musk using teh Jew controlled SEC and DOJ.

    I think Elon Musk is serious but don’t know if he will succeed. The decision to take it private is genius and scares the bejesus out of Jewish elites because a privatized Twitter would provide a strong layer of protection against the Jewish occupation government. Plus he wouldn’t be dealing with Jew and woke stockholders trying to crash the stock price or control policy.

    Twitter has morphed into a quasi government agency whose goal is to control the narrative and narrow the bounds of acceptable political dissent which means no talk of white genocide and race replacement, black crime and Jewish control of the American system.

    Musk’s offer is a perfectly valid and correctly-priced offer that would be more or less an obligatory accept if it weren’t for political shenanigans.

    This is a fork strategy.

    Either Musk gets his Twitter and does Musk things with it, XOR they show their hand by doing blatantly illegal things and getting away with it. Either way he’s holding them responsible, whether they like it or not. All of a sudden the SEC will forget its own regulations. Twitter revealed not to be a private company after all, to such a clear degree even the dumb peasantry can see it.

    Remember Hulk Hogan sued Gawker into oblivion. They can’t quite defend against someone with real money, because they have to give up too many lies to pull the necessary acrobatics.

    Musk’s great value-add has always been snake-charming the Fascist bureaucracy. He’s not an engineer. He’s barely even a manager. He’s learned the Wormtongue language so as to use it against the Wormtongues. Now he’s become extremely rich without them realizing he was never on the plantation. Haha, oops.

  22. Max Boot is an evil Neo-Con who pushes nation-wrecking mass legal immigration, mass illegal immigration and amnesty for illegal alien invaders. Max Boot wants to bog down the American Empire in unnecessary overseas war. Max Boot was a big backer of the Iraq War debacle.

    I personally hate the Neo-Cons. I have no problem admitting it. The Neo-Cons are warmongers who put the interests of Israel ahead of the interests of the United States. The Neo-Cons are treasonous scum of the worst sort.

    George W Bush is the man responsible for the Iraq War debacle, of that there is no doubt, but the Neo-Cons in the corporate media were screaming bloody murder for regime change in the Middle East — and the bastards are still screaming for more endless overseas war.

    Max Boot, John Podhoretz, William Kristol and the other Neo-Cons are evil scum who want to flood the United States with foreigners. Boot, Podhoretz and Kristol continuously push for the American Empire to be engaged in endless overseas war. Boot, Podhoretz and Kristol are actively hostile to the interests of the European Christian ancestral core of the United States.

    It was a mistake for the United States to allow the ancestors of Podhoretz and Kristol to infiltrate into the territory of the United States. It was a mistake for the United States to allow the Max Boot mob to infiltrate the USA. Max Boot is an immigrant interloper infiltrator ingrate of the worst sort.


    Jews form a nation within a nation everywhere they reside. Can Jews ever be considered to be part of the larger nation in which they reside when they are genetically and culturally predisposed to put the interests of the Jew Nation over and above the interests of the larger nations in which they reside?

  23. Elon Musk Muses About Who Owns The Press(2018):

    I say:

    Jews control NBC/Comcast

    Jews control CBS/Viacom

    Jews control ABC/Disney

    Murdoch’s Fox News Is Neo-Conservative Leaning

    Jews control the evil and treasonous Neo-Conservative faction of the JEW/WASP Ruling Class of the American Empire.

    There is no doubt that certain JEWS have a disproportionate control of the corporate propaganda apparatus in the United States. There is no doubt that the Jew-controlled corporate media pushes an anti-White and anti-Christian message of total hatred for European Christians. No honest person would disagree with that.

    The JEW-controlled corporate propaganda apparatus constantly pushes nation-wrecking open borders mass immigration and multicultural mayhem. In order to stop Mass Legal Immigration and Mass Illegal Immigration it will be necessary to remove disproportionate media power from the Jews.

    A political chieftain from the White Core American Patriots will have to dislodge from power all Jew-controlled media outlets in the United States.

    Certain JEWS must be recognized as a hostile element within the treasonous and evil JEW/WASP Ruling Class of the American Empire.

    The United States is a European Christian nation, and anti-White elements hostile to the European Christian ancestral core of the United States of America must not be allowed to have disproportionate power in the media to attack Whites and Christians.

    Go read “The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy” by Walt and Mearsheimer to see how certain JEWS use their disproportionate political and media power to shape the foreign policy of the American Empire.

    Musk has dreams of selling everybody a Tesla like Henry Ford sold everyone a Model T. It would make him the world’s first trillionaire. But for that to happen, the economy has to be strong enough for a lot of people to be able to afford to buy them. Musk is smart enough to know that a tanking economy will make Tesla’s sales plunge.

    It’s been obvious to anyone who’s not a idiot that our economy has been going to the dogs under the Democrats. Biden is an arrogant jerk who has no qualms about wrecking the American economy just because he wants to quarrel with Russia over the Biden mafioso family business in Ukraine.

    Musk wants a business-minded Republican running the government, because he thinks the economy will be much healthier that way. For that to happen, conservative voices need to be heard by the average voter, so average voters can be persuaded by Republicans. That means social media has to stop censoring conservatives like a bunch of sullen putzes.

    Not how that works. I don’t feel like spoonfeeding you right now; do your own homework.

    Certainly none by his workers at Tesla, who have the highest incidents of injuries and lost-time accidents of any of the automakers in the United States.

    Did you get that from the Official Press? Very believable.

    Naturally all his workers are soon going to quit due to the awful conditions. Any day now.

    Teslas win because Musk isn’t anti-intellectual. “I drive a car. What would I like my car to have?” Then he puts that in a Tesla. His cars have features that cars should have had decades ago, but don’t because engineers at other automakers aren’t [even allowed] to think about car design unless they absolutely have to. These “new” features fit so well that Tesla owners go apeshit.

    Sure he’s not perfect…but you’ve already stopped listening, haven’t you? Nuance: what’s that, is it tasty?

    Likewise, SpaceX puts stuff in space at 1/10 to 1/50th of the price of NASA alternatives. Do you like space travel, Brad? Or do you hate space travel? Obviously, if you hate it, this is bad.

    I’m impressed that Musk was able to freely extract so much knowledge from NASA scientists. I would have thought they would be shamed by a) his company doing it better and b) the fact they chose to work at NASA and thus gut their own productivity.

    Though, at least, he doesn’t piss off sensei. I would be all like, “Sensei, that sounds wrong. You sound like you’re full of shit. Are you full of shit?” Fun fact: this pisses off sensei. He doesn’t like that. Musk is willing to brown-nose teacher. Clearly it worked for him.

    One of the main reasons why the hwuhite race and Europeans are going out of the show. They literally can’t help themselves but to suck kike dicks.

    Musk is an obvious kabuki show. Anglin is chasing his celeb worship bug again. He believes that the huwhite masses deserve grace and not having to put any work into repentance and waking up. He did this with (((trump))), the same thing, before he crossed the damnation line with the vax. Hell, he even said the betrayal at the capital wasnt bad, but the vax shilling AFTER was his boiling point. This is Anglin’s vain attempt to appeal to the low IQ huwhite masses, who deserve such devotion for the virtue of being kike loving low IQ masses because that is what being White American is all about.

    Now he is being “neutral” on musk, who publicly claimed he wants to implant chips into everyone. The real Mark of the Beast…

    The fact that the Daily Stormer is now on a “.cn” domain still hasn’t waken up the majority of people is both terrifying and dissappointing. China will literally own the world for the next millenium.

    And you know what, I’m very fine with it. At least they will be faithful to our classical arts, and I will not have to see some subhuman huwhite “-ski” or (((Goldsmith))) perverting another Wagner’s play. There is no genuine European nationalism left, and there has never been a huwhite race. This is our punishment for letting muttmerica, the cancer upon the world, festered. Now the disease consumes the host.

    May God have mercy on us all.

  36. The Twitter shareholders better realize that for far less than Musk’s offer for Twitter, he can assemble a team to duplicate Twitter in about a year. He’s got the money for the hardware and software development needed for the task and then some.

    Could this be Musk getting free publicity for the new “Eagle” (I made that up) social media site that’s he’s already decided to build should Twitter scorn his advance? Half the country would subscribe day one just to piss off the other half and the race would be on.

    There are a lot more salesmen out there than men who start companies from scratch. Most people can sell to a greater or lesser degree. It’s a fairly common skill. Founding a company is very hard and very few people can do it.

    Musk is selling his customers products they already want, which means he doesn’t have much to do in the sales line. There were already people who wanted a car with very advanced features before Musk showed up. There were companies who wanted to launch satellites more cheaply than NASA could do it before Musk showed up.

    His real skill is in the founding of companies. The organizational effort and drive needed to launch a company from scratch is insanely high.

    Musk is a purposely put together Champion of the Jew. Musk is a Jew to deceive technos and drive a weakening wedge into European manufacturing and first of all car manufacturing.

    Mercedes was forced to help build the environmentally most damaging car deceivingly called Tesla. Musk can not build anything, just the way his predecessor was a useless imposter.

    The muskoxen now need Twitter to control the rising critique on the Starlink application to subdue Europe and the Ukraina in particular. Starlink is transporting the communication of the Jewish provoked operation in the Ukraina to exterminate Ukrainians and Russians in the Ukraina and weaken and enslave Europe further.
    The Jewnighted States of Israhell are the enemy for the peoples the world over and Europe in particular. “America” and Israhell are exploiters only and that shit mask is another cover for it.

    The simpletons who think they live in a country with a constitutional amendment giving them rights to free speech will be exposed to his bid to buy twitter and what his motivations are. The left is freaking out, saying all the usual stupid things, and personally attacking Musk.
    He’s driving home the message that twitter is anything but a free speech platform and that it should be.
    If nothing else it’s bringing the free speech discussion to the forefront and the left is doing all the heavy lifting for him. It’s a win win.
    If he takes over great, that’s a crushing defeat for the left. If not, he’s exposed them, and made their heads explode.
    Whatever people’s opinion of Musk, he has gravitas, I don’t get it myself, but he’s extremely influential.
    Say what you will about the guy being a grifter, but he’s had the balls to come out and criticize the govt, and the left. He got the ball rolling with his critique of the Covid fiasco. He’s throwing gas on the fire with his critique and attempt to take control of twitter.
    For the record, I’ve always said Twitter is for “twits,” never used, never will. But, as Tucker Carlson said, Twitter is the sounding board of the elites, and anything that fucks that up, and pisses them off is a net victory!

    “Musk is serving the same purpose as Trump did”, namely to fool you.
    Both are Jewish figures to destroy white man.
    The musked up Jews need Twitter now to mutate quicker. Right now into covering the Starlink crime in the Ukraina and the follow ons with a widening war entangling greater Europe while the Jew is gaining even more control, power, money (and women and children).
    “Elon Musk” is a project of the Jew. Musk is fake and sold to you as “champion”.

  47. Supporting Musk and/or buying any of his BS, like Tesla, Starlink, Solar BS, is supporting the crimes of the Jewish project on the Ukraina.
    Would you be surprised if Musk’s Bitcoin PR is another Rothschild-Rockefeller OP to destroy Bitcoin?

  48. Has anyone heard if Russia will start knocking out Musk’s satellites as he is using them to spy on behalf of the Ukrainian side? He is a participant in the war and should be targeted by Russian sanctions, and all his operations put on their black lists. Since Russia is a major supplier of essential resources to many countries it could start applying more aggressive sanctions against its enemies in various regions. Throwing out Western corporations could be achieved with ultimatums such as: food and ferilisers or else … But as this is too much the like USA and the West operates it will probably not blackmail in such a way friendly countries that it trades with.

    Your question is the most interesting and most important one today.
    Starlink, i.e. Jewish imposter Alan Musk, has and is supplying the Jewkrainian warferer and army with unlimited, unrestricted, cost free communication. Without that they are finished.
    JewS Central Command is out of Stuttgart in Germany leading the Jewkrainian warfare with the help of high altitude spy drones and maned flights too. Russia is no longer communicating with the JewS army. Thanks to the JewS occupation and stationing Germany is a prime enemy target for Russia.
    The lackey government over the German remnants has declared itself party to the Jewkrainian war.
    Russia has ended its common space program with the JewS.
    Russia has just announced its own separated, renewed and no longer Jewed space flights. It would be surprising if those flights are not to hunt down the thousands of Starlink objects, while the JewS is replacing them as they go. It all runs on the ideology of rotten Rand Foundation and its noble formula of “stretching Russia”.
    Once again they are stretching far beyond. The only difference is, that this time they have an opponent with the capacity to wipe the scum within 5 minutes from the earth, then they can send from out space, or more likely from way down below, where the fire is so hot that they will freeze up and no Arctic warming will be in sight for eons to come.

    I’m sure you know perfectly well that Twitter is a private company, not a government property. If it is subject of some regulations, being owned by Musk is not going to change that basic fact – it will still be subject of the same regulations.

    As for why not Musk, in particular; well, I just think he is shady af; personally I don’t trust him as far as I can throw him. I am sure of one thing: whatever he is up to, public interest is never on his agenda.

    I also see some contradiction in a claim that Twitter is “the public square” and ownership by one individual; it seems clear to me that a public square by definition should not be private property… although I don’t actually think comparison to the concept of public square is apt, but it is one that Musk himself uses.

    “Control by government is an obvious failure. Control of others is the problem, okay in nature, a failure in civilizations.

    Anything by government will eventually be a failure – including government itself”

    If it wasn’t for (some) control of the commercial airline industry and the automotive industry, planes would be crashing and falling out of the air. We would also see Corvair-type vehicles being sold.

    You sound like the typical “Libertarian” – get rid of all government controls and regulations. The consumer and his or her safety be damned!

    What is needed is HONEST government, with COMMON-SENSE controls and regulations. Things that I will never see in what few remaining years of my lifetime that I have left!

    Thank you.

    My fault.

    Government, controlling most all of every society, is a failure.

    So 400 million deaths at the hands of government in the 20th century is okay?

    So many stupid people that can’t come close to comprehending reality.

    No, ONE DEATH is too many. It all goes back to the greed and power thing.

    If we had truly honest and non-corrupt government that was doing what it was supposed to and not doing what it was not supposed to do, all of these non-stop wars would end. If there was no corruption in OUR government, there would be no need for personal income taxes and there would be no need for any political parties, because all of the politicians would be doing the right thing by the people. But it will NEVER happen!

    Thank you.

    Let’s say that is true: government is a failure. But why? I would say two main issues are concentration of power and lack of accountability. Now, let’s say we have a system free of government interference – I think two main issues with such system would be… concentration of power and lack of accountability!

    Except now it would be individuals like Musk and/or corporations reaping benefits of power directly, unrestrained by any pretense of oversight. As history shows, that just leads to them creating authoritarian government-like structures of their own, worse or at best just as bad as the current ones. (see the early days of unregulated capitalism for historical evidence supporting what I’m saying. In particular, see East India Company which practically run India for a while – with disastrous results. Disastrous for India, I mean; the company did very well for itself)

    The answer to the problem of governing is not removing the government; the answer is more democracy. Direct democracy, not representative one.
