Any doubt that many progressives have abandoned their commitment to free speech was erased by the hysterical reaction to Elon Musk’s effort to purchase Twitter and return the company to its roots as a free speech zone. Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich and “woke” neocon Max Boot fretted that Musk’s commitment to free speech threatens... Read More
It wasn’t so long ago that the American Civil Liberties Union represented the free speech wing of the free speech party. Even today, on the ACLU’s own website, you can read their self-congratulatory commemoration of their brave “free speech even for Nazis” moment: Unwavering commitment to principle?! I don’t think so. In fact, saying the... Read More
There’s jubilation in some quarters about Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter and his promise to restore free speech, which had been more or less the de facto policy of Twitter until 2016 when the collusion of oligarchs and the deep state mustered all their strengths to rig the public discourse. Over the years, the censorship... Read More
There is technically still some possibility that the Elon Musk deal to purchase Twitter and reinstate freedom of speech could fall through, but this does not appear likely. What appears likely is that he is going to take over the company, and then probably be put in prison a few days or weeks later. However,... Read More

The two most pressing issues of the day are Elon Musk’s plan to reinstate freedom of speech on Twitter and an impending war with Russia. Maybe these two issues can be tied together? First, let’s take a trip down Memory Lane and remember how we got to the point where we are begging a billionaire... Read More
This video is available on Rumble. Elon Musk has bought Twitter and lefties are terrified because Mr. Musk calls himself a “free speech absolutist.” Nothing scares the Left more than letting everyone talk. “The NAACP calls for Musk to keep Trump off Twitter.” It said that if he returns, “lives are at risk, and so...

The most dangerous thing about Elon Musk buying Twitter outright for $44 billion is the rapidly spreading notion that his controlling an influential social media platform is dangerous. It is, but not for any of the reasons his critics assert. The current furor is dangerously misguided for two reasons. First, it assumes that one billionaire... Read More
America’s most successful immigrant and African-American, Elon Musk, recently bought Twitter. His plan is to bring back free speech. This would be ideal for all American social media platforms. Unless the Constitution becomes completely irrelevant, the First Amendment ensures that we can speak without fear of the government. We have something our brothers on the... Read More
Everyone is sort of waiting to pull the trigger on going back on Twitter, because the team was still banning people up until a few hours ago. But we’ve now got a high profile hero returning with an unmolested account. We’ve got many others if we search “I’m back.” Along with making new accounts, people... Read More
Is it really actually happening? It feels like a dream. I’m waiting to make my new account, because apparently Twitter mods are doing a “last watch” and still banning returning heroes. There is no “except for Anglin” clause in Elon’s pitch, and at this point, he is in so deep there is no reason to... Read More

Earlier: Ellen K. Pao In Jeff Bezos' WASHINGTON POST On Elon Musk: We Must "Prevent Rich People From Controlling Our Channels Of Communication" As a Twitter shareholder of record since late 2018, when the stock was trading around $28 per share, I am naturally delighted by Elon Musk’s dramatic $54.20 per share takeover of the...

Marc Andreessen is another “founder of the internet” who is unhappy with the direction it has taken and has spoken out about this dark moon rising. He recently posted to Twitter that the “Stormer treatment” is coming to the rest of the internet, where people who the government/media disagree with will be totally banned from... Read More
Max Boot allegedly listens to Burzum when he is writing columns for the Washington Post about how we have to go to war with every country not run by Jews. But will he join his cousin Sean Penn in his planned siege of Moscow? From what I’ve read about how much he wants to kill... Read More
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... Read More
Tesla’s “TecnoKing,” Elon Musk, reported Monday that he is the biggest shareholder in Twitter. He has a 9.2 percent, about four times Jack Dorsey’s share. Mr. Musk has hinted that Twitter needs to loosen up its censorship. He is also a Twitter board member, and promised “significant improvements.” If white advocates can express their views... Read More

The crisis of 2020 has created the greatest wealth gap in history. The middle class, capitalism and democracy are all under threat. What went wrong and what can be done? In a matter of decades, the United States has gone from a largely benign form of capitalism to a neo-feudal form that has created an... Read More
Why do they hate Elon Musk? The head of Tesla and SpaceX should be a progressive hero. Leftists lecture us about “climate change” and why we need a Green New Deal. One group, Extinction Rebellion, warns of “mass extinction” unless there is revolution. The Guardian says some parents regret having children because of “climate change.”... Read More

A company founded by an African immigrant just launched the heaviest payload ever delivered by a commercial company into space [SpaceX launches its powerful Falcon Heavy rocket for the first time, by Loren Grush, TheVerge.com, February 6, 2018]. But rather than celebrating, Main Stream Media journalists/ activists were furious—the immigrant from South Africa is a... Read More
A Broad Spectrum Column
OK, I’m trying to figure out cars. Especially the electric and nuclear-powered ones. Mostly the fizzing and fuming about how great electrics are, or maybe the end of civilization, seems political. Liberals love them because they will prevent pollution, end global warming, and maybe stop hair loss. Libertarians hate them because they associate them with... Read More
