Elon Musk Is 'Out for Blood,' Declares Total War on the Democratic Establishment


From the moment news of Elon Musk’s purchase of a 9-percent stake in Twitter Company broke, the assault on the self-described free-speech absolutist began. Musk has faced regulatory scrutiny, been labeled a racist and on Thursday, he was accused of sexual misconduct.

If the left was expecting to cow the world’s richest man into submission, they’ve seriously misread him. Not only is he undaunted, he’s “out for blood.”


Although Twitter is best known for suppressing the Hunter Biden laptop story ahead of the 2020 presidential election, the company also played a huge role in perpetuating the Trump-Russia hoax, which began as an effort to sway the 2016 election and was quite possibly the biggest fraud ever perpetrated in American political history.

Elon Musk Is ‘Out for Blood,’ Declares Total War on the Democratic Establishment

The powers that be at Twitter, other Big Tech firms and the legacy media, who hold themselves out to be arbiters of the truth, helped advance the lies and conceal the truth to shape the national debate. Their efforts turned a large portion of Americans against former President Donald Trump and have caused untold destruction and division in the country.

The Tesla and SpaceX CEO was actually a Clinton campaign donor and voter in 2016. He, like many Americans, bought the lies.

Not anymore.

Now, he’s taking aim at the Trump-Russia hoax, a fabrication that’s still being allowed to spread on Twitter, despite overwhelmingly harsh action against conservatives who try to counter the lies.

After her campaign alerted the media to the bogus story that the Trump organization had covert ties to Russia’s Alfa Bank in October 2016, a move we learned on Friday that she herself had approved, then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton immediately took to Twitter to disseminate the false story. She even included a statement from our current national security advisor, Jake Sullivan, for added credibility.


Both tweets are textbook examples of disinformation, yet each remains in place on Twitter’s website. This issue was raised by a Twitter user, who sent a message to Musk asking him to look into it when he gains control of the company.


Musk acknowledged the tweet below and then messaged Twitter’s current CEO, Parag Agrawal, and the company’s policy and legal head, Vijaya Gadde, who serves as Twitter’s ultimate censor.

The Democrats started it and now it’s game on. Musk has declared war on the Democratic establishment.

It will be good for America to have someone like Musk at the top of a major tech platform. There’s no way to overstate the importance of a plurality of voices in the...

Biden’s Big Lie: ‘Green’ Energy Doesn’t Save Money, It’s 4 to 6 Times MORE Expensive


Joe Biden keeps claiming that wind and solar energy are going to save money for consumers. But more government subsidies to “renewable energy” is a key feature of the White House anti-inflation strategy recently announced by Biden.

He probably got that idea from John Kerry, the administration’s climate czar, who recently claimed that “solar and wind are less expensive than coal or oil or gas.” Pete Buttigieg, the Biden Transportation secretary, makes the same claims about the thousands of dollars that motorists can save if they buy electric cars.

This couldn’t be more wrong.

Proponents of “green” energy boondoggles are often masters at playing with the numbers, because that is the only way that wind and solar electricity generation make any sense. Advocates such as Kerry love to focus on the low operating costs of solar and wind since they don’t require constant purchases of fuel. Ignoring the relatively short lifespan of solar and wind components, as well as the high initial investment, can make it appear as though solar and wind operate at lower costs than fossil fuels or nuclear power.

Let’s get the facts straight. The cost isn’t just what you pay at the retail level for gas or power. It also includes the taxes you pay to subsidize the power. A 2017 study by the Department of Energy found that for every dollar of government subsidy per BTU unit of energy produced from fossil fuels, wind and solar get at least $10.

That’s anything but a money saver.

The reason the subsidies are so high is that solar and wind have additional costs compared to their more reliable competition. “Green” energy sources are non-dispatchable, meaning their output can’t be changed to match demand. The wind doesn’t blow harder, and the sun doesn’t shine brighter, just because electricity use is peaking.

Conversely, fossil fuel entities—such as a coal plant—can ramp up generation when we need it most and ramp down when demand falls.

Widespread adoption of solar and wind generation would necessitate expensive batteries on a large scale to ensure that people still have power when the wind stops blowing or when the sun stops shining—like it does every single night.

So, unlike reliable and flexible natural gas, solar and wind require large-scale storage solutions: massive banks of batteries that are hardly environmentally friendly but are also extremely expensive. And since batteries don’t last forever, they add to both the initial expense and maintenance costs during the life of a solar or wind energy generating station.

The same problem exists with electric cars. The sticker price on EVs is considerably higher than for conventional gas-operated cars, and the so-called savings over time assume that the electric power for recharging is free. But it isn’t and power costs are rising almost as fast as gas prices.

Factors such as these are consistently ignored by Kerry and other “green” energy activists.

To genuinely evaluate dissimilar energy sources and provide an apples-to-apples comparison, the U.S. Energy Information Administration uses the Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE) and the Levelized Cost of Storage (LCOS). These measures consider the initial costs, the lifespan of generation and storage systems, maintenance and fuel costs, decommissioning expenses, subsidies, etc., and compare that to how much electricity is produced over a power plant’s lifetime.

The numbers don’t lie: “green” energy is a complete waste of resources.

The LCOE and LCOS for solar and on-shore wind farms are four times as expensive as natural gas. But offshore wind takes the cake—it’s six times as expensive as natural gas.

Imagine paying four to six times as much every month for the same electricity! That’s the green paradise world that the Biden administration wants for America.

Yet, it’s even worse than that because electric power costs greatly affect the cost of producing nearly everything else. In the case of producing aluminum, for example, a third of the total production cost is...

Robby Mook throws Clinton allies under the bus, testifies Hillary ‘agreed’ to leak Trump-Russia allegation to media


Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton got a nasty surprise on Friday when her 2016 campaign manager, Robby Mook, testified during the Michael Sussmann trial that she “agreed” to leak allegations that the Trump Organization had a secret communications channel with Russia’s Alfa Bank.

During a cross-examination by government prosecutor Andrew DeFilippis, Mook was asked whether the campaign believed the allegations against former President Donald Trump and whether they had planned to release the evidence to the media, according to National Review.

He recounted that he was first briefed about the Alfa Bank issue by campaign general counsel Marc Elias, who at the time was a partner at the law firm Perkins Coie.

Mook testified that he was informed the data came from “people that had expertise in this sort of matter.”

Mook claimed under oath that he was not sure of the evidence’s credibility at the time. He justified the leak to the media, claiming the purpose of it was to get a reporter to “run it down” further and “vet it out.”

The Clinton acolyte asserted that he discussed the matter with senior campaign staff and then he “discussed it with Hillary as well” and that “she agreed to” hand the evidence over to the press.

The trial revolves around Michael Sussmann, who is a former partner at the Perkins Coie law firm. He allegedly lied to then-FBI general counsel James Baker in the fall of 2016 when he presented debunked evidence of Russian collusion with Trump.

Prosecutors are contending that Sussmann gave the purported evidence to Baker and tech executive Rodney Joffe. He ostensibly told Baker that he was handing over the evidence to “help the bureau.” That evidence included Domain Name System (DNS) data that allegedly showed frequent communications between servers associated with the Trump Organization and Russia’s...
