Elon Musk has described himself as “on the Warpath” to change the entire Twitter organization. Once the $44 billion takeover of the social media giant is completed, Musk is “expected to serve as a temporary CEO of Twitter for a few months” after, according to CNBC’s David Faber.

During the Met Gala in New York City, the entrepreneur told the Associated Press of his plans:

“Well, I mean, the goal that I have, should everything come to fruition with Twitter, is to have a service that is broadly — is as broadly inclusive as possible where ideally most of America is on it and talking!” Musk told the AP.

“I think just generally, the — I’m looking for something that’s like I said as broadly inclusive as possible, that’s as trusted as possible as a system, and I hope we are successful in that regard,” he continued.

“I’ve also vowed this publicly that we have to get rid of the bots, trolls, scams, and everything,” he added. “That’s obviously diminishing the user experience and we don’t want people to get tricked out of their money and that kind of thing.”

“I’m on the warpath!” he declared.

    Hey @ElonMusk, Twitter is still shadow banning as of today. May 5, 2022.

    I replied today to Michael “hockey stick” Mann with a quote from a peer-reviewed study which he co-authored. Immediately I was asked by Twitter to take the shadow test. I answered all 15 shadow tests correctly to prove I was human, and Twitter said so. Tried to post, then Twitter message is ‘sorry something went wrong.’ Exit and try again, and there is the shadow test again. And again.

    “Your account is locked. After careful review, we determined your account broke the Twitter Rules. Your account is temporarily in read-only mode, which means you can’t Tweet, Retweet, or Like content. Most accounts regain full access in a week, but it could take longer.”

    Here’s the quote I posted:

    Michael Mann with others in the journal Nature Geoscience: “Over most of the early twenty-first century, however, model tropospheric warming is substantially larger than observed.” (Santer et al., 2017)

    In other words, their computer models substantially overestimate the global warming alleged to occur in the real world.

    Here is the reference:

    Santer, et al.,2017. Causes of differences in model and satellite tropospheric warming rates. By Benjamin D. Santer1 *, John C. Fyfe2 , Giuliana Pallotta1 , Gregory M. Flato , Gerald A.

    If he really wants to protect free speech he needs to stop providing global users’ data to the United Nations, the FBI, the CIA the NSA, the DHS,and foreign intelligence groups like five eyes. No probable cause, no warrant, just send us all your data. The 2 major social media platforms were designed by US intelligence, DARPA and others as a way of doing mass data collection. The reason we are being censored, is because Babylon controls all the data, and thus control the narrative. This is the largest psyop is the history of the world. They are literally brainwashing anyone dumb enough to fall for it.It is truly Biblical and soon enough, their entire system will crumble.Strap on God’s armor boys, it’s about to get a little shaky, everything not built on The Rock is gonna be shaken to its’ very foundation. To him who overcomes, you will be given access to the tree of life.

    Now this is something special to admire. Notice he isn’t taking down the Constitution, burning a building, stealing all the products on shelves, blocking police and traffic on a major street, killing or raping someone, nor picketing at the house of a Supreme Court Judge?????

WSJ: Corporate Dirty Pool in Washington’s Senate Race

Published

on

The Wall Street Journal’s,  Kimberly A. Strassel wrote a piece identifying how the Democrats are so worried about Washington Senator Patty Murray’s re-election “that Seattle’s corporate heavyweights are playing dirty pool on her behalf.”

Murray, a leftwing progressive, has faced little competition while in office; until now. Tiffany Smiley, a Republican nurse and entrepreneur “is pummeling Ms. Murray from every direction and laying out her own detailed reform agenda” adds the WSJ.

A RealClearPolitics average has Ms. Murray winning by 8 points. Another poll has Smiley within 2 points. Regardless, It’s close enough that “Majority Leader Chuck Schumer recently transferred $500,000 of his own campaign cash to Ms. Murray’s campaign.”

Money from Schumer isn’t the only liberal panic dough. “Starbucks, the Seattle Times and the Seattle Seahawks—are actively attempting to sabotage the Smiley campaign, albeit in a distinctly underhanded fashion” writes the WSJ. “Their targets are two effective Smiley campaign ads.”

At the center of the fight are two of Smiley’s ads: “Game Day” and “Cup of Coffee.”

Strassel reports:

In “Game Day” the Republican is in a kitchen preparing to watch a football game, hitting Ms. Murray and Democrats for the spiraling cost of food. In “Cup of Coffee,” she stands in front of a derelict building. Barely visible at the top, and seen backward, is the store’s faded Starbucks sign. Ms. Smiley hits Ms. Murray for rising crime, while the ad flashes two Seattle Times headlines, one of which reads: “Starbucks to Close 5 Seattle Stores Over Safety Concerns.”

“Game Day” hit the airwaves Sept 1. Five days later, according to documents I obtained, the Smiley campaign received a terse email from the Seahawks claiming a trademark violation. The ad briefly shows Ms. Smiley’s husband, Scotty—a retired U.S. Army Ranger who was blinded by shrapnel in Iraq—expressing alarm that “even beer” prices are rising. You only see his shoulders above a tall couch—and if you get a magnifying glass you might make out a letter or two from the word “Seahawks.” The letter insisted the Smiley campaign “immediately cease” its “unauthorized commercial use.” Nothing like your local sports franchise dumping cease-and-desist orders on wounded veterans.

“Cup of Coffee” went live on Sept. 20. The next day, the Seattle Times sent an email to the “Jane Smiley” campaign—apparently without running it past its fact-checking desk—accusing it of “unauthorized use of The Seattle Times logo and two headlines” in violation of the paper’s “copyright and trademark.” It demanded the campaign remove any references to the paper not only in its own ad, but in an NBC News article about the ad’s launch.

Two days later, Starbucks sent a certified letter saying the campaign was appropriating its intellectual property, and complaining it might “create an unfounded association in the minds of consumers between Starbucks and your campaign.” It insisted the campaign either pull the ad or alter it to strip both the (barely visible, backward) sign and the Seattle Times headline referencing Starbucks.

One such letter may be the product of an overzealous lawyer, but three in a row looks like more than a coincidence. One might even wonder if some Murray staffer was putting bugs in Seattle business leaders’ ears. And while corporate political-action committees routinely play politics by making donations, it’s something else for individual companies to go to bat for a candidate via behind-the-scenes threats based on tenuous legal claims. These letters were bound to cost the Smiley campaign money and headaches and might have pushed it off the airwaves.

The campaign didn’t roll over. It made a painless accommodation to the “Game Day” ad, blurring the jersey colors to obscure anything distinct. In a legal letter sent Thursday to Starbucks, the campaign rebutted the company’s infringement claims, running through political speech protections and noting that no reasonable person would ever think a factual ad about shuttered Starbucks stores amounted to a coffee-chain endorsement. It suggested Starbucks focus on its own problems, like its recent union woes.

The Seattle Times also received a letter refuting its claims, but it got something in addition. The Smiley campaign on Thursday filed a Federal Election Commission complaint, charging the paper with providing the Murray campaign a prohibited in-kind contribution. It turns out that Ms. Murray has also used a Seattle Times headline in her ads. Her “First 2016 Ad” sports the newspaper’s logo under the headline: “Patty Murray’s and Paul Ryan’s Teamwork Is a Model for Congress.” It seems the Times has a different legal standard for candidates it endorses.

As the FEC complaint notes, the Smiley campaign would have to spend an estimated $5,000 to remove and update the ad—“costs that Patty Murray does not have to accrue.” It cites FEC regulations that provide “if a corporation makes its resources available for free, it must do so for all candidates.”

Don’t expect the Seattle corporate set to do anything on behalf of Ms. Smiley soon. But it shouldn’t be too much to ask that they do their politicking straight—and out in the open.
