In response to a tweet on Wednesday claiming that Elon Musk is “playing both sides of the political aisle,” Musk said “Crazy theory – maybe I’m just centrist? Also, when did free speech become right-wing? That was the weirdest switcheroo ever.”

Right or Left, Liberal or Conservative, Independent or Libertarian, we all follow the same Constitution. Our forefathers understood how important certain freedoms are and the most important of all freedoms being that of speech. In an uncanny evolution of extreme left-wing politics, far-left ‘woke’ liberals have used a belief in freedom of speech as a way to attack followers of the republican party.
Musk bought Twitter for this reason, he saw the censorship enforced by Twitter on many republicans for expressing their opinions while extremist groups were allowed to continue tweeting. The far-left claims to be the party of equality but they have shown time and time again that if you don’t agree with there beliefs they will do everything in their power to cancel you and keep you quiet.
In another tweet on the same thread, YouTuber Farzad Meshabi said too Musk, “Most of my conversations with folks go something like ‘I hate politics, everything is so polarizing’. Many people are craving for a reasonable middle that has its eyes set on a better future. Hopefully we see more of this soon.”

What happened to the days where we could all get along no matter the difference in political opinion? The days where we could set politics aside and enjoy family events without ex-communicating certain members of the family for having a difference in opinion. Freedom of speech is essential to running a free state. America has had its faults but we have recognized them and progressed forward. Stifling freedom of speech is a step of regression and just like Musk and Mesbahi, along with many other folks, we are all hopeful of a world one day that will not be as polarizing as it is today.

Hunter Biden Indicted on Federal Gun Charges Amidst Special Counsel Investigation
In a significant development, Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, was indicted on Thursday on federal gun charges as part of Special Counsel David Weiss’ ongoing investigation. The indictment alleges that Hunter Biden made false statements during the purchase of a firearm, among other charges.
The charges against Hunter Biden include:
• Making a false statement in the purchase of a firearm
• Making a false statement related to information required to be kept by a federal firearms licensed dealer
•Possession of a firearm by a person who is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance
According to the indictment, the alleged incident occurred on or about October 12, 2018, in the District of Delaware. Hunter Biden is accused of knowingly making a false and fictitious written statement during the acquisition of a Colt Cobra 38SPL Revolver. According to reports from Fox News, the statement, submitted on Form 4473, falsely certified that he was not an unlawful user of, and addicted to, any stimulant, narcotic drug, or controlled substance.
Furthermore, the indictment further states that between October 12, 2018, and October 23, 2018, in the District of Delaware, Hunter Biden knowingly possessed the same firearm despite being an unlawful user of and addicted to controlled substances. This marks the first set of charges brought by Special Counsel David Weiss against Hunter Biden since being granted special counsel status.
The investigation came to public attention when it was reported by Fox News in 2021 that police had responded to an incident in 2018 involving a gun owned by Hunter Biden.
Reports state that, Hallie Biden, the widow of President Biden’s late son, Beau, who was in a relationship with Hunter at the time, discarded the gun. Hunter’s gun was thrown away in a dumpster near a market, located close to a school. It was subsequently revealed that Hunter Biden had purchased a gun earlier that same month.
Hunter Biden’s legal troubles do not end with the gun charges. Earlier in July, an original plea agreement collapsed, which would have seen him plead guilty to two misdemeanor tax counts for willful failure to pay federal income tax, thus avoiding jail time on a felony gun charge. Instead, he pleaded not guilty to two misdemeanor tax charges and one felony gun charge.
Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed David Weiss as special counsel to oversee the Hunter Biden investigation and related matters. The White House has declined to comment on these developments, which continue to draw significant public and media attention.
