Liberals and progressive elites had zero problems firing police officers, firemen, nurses, doctors and anyone else who did not get the COVID-19 vaccine. Those same individuals are now crying bloody murder after Elon Musk fired some of those individuals who suppressed freedom of speech while working at Twitter.
President Biden said earlier this week: “I think that Elon Musk’s cooperations and/or technical relationships with other countries is worthy of being looked at. Whether or not he is doing anything inappropriate, I’m not suggesting that, I’m suggesting that it’s worth being looked at and that’s all I’ll say.”
Publicly saying something may be inappropriate is, in fact, quite suggestive; whether or not Biden understands that. When asked by the reporter if Biden believes Musk is a threat to national security, he responded “it’s worthy of being looked at.”
On Thursday a reporter asked National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan for more details as to why the Bide administration would be interested in investigating Musk, and if it indeed was a potential. “Well you heard the president yesterday and the [Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States] process is the normal process through which transactions that might have a national security nexus get reviewed and I will defer to the CFIUS process rather than comment on it further,” Sullivan said.

National Review writes:
The Biden administration began discussing last month whether the U.S. should perform national security reviews on some of Musk’s ventures, including his Twitter deal and SpaceX’s Starlink satellite network, according to media reports.
Musk’s $44 billion Twitter takeover was funded in part by $7.1 billion from equity investors, including foreign sources such as Prince Alwaleed bin Talal of Saudi Arabia, Qatar Holding, and Binance Holdings Ltd., a digital-asset exchange founded and run by a Chinese native, according to Reuters. Tesla, Musk’s electric-vehicle company, also pulls in roughly a quarter of its revenue from China.

Historic House Vote Expels Rep. George Santos Amidst Scandal
In a turn of events, the House of Representatives made history on Friday with a vote to expel Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.), marking the first such expulsion in over two decades. A moment fraught with gravity unfolded as Speaker Mike Johnson wielded his gavel to formalize Santos’ removal, setting a precedent in congressional annals.
Santos, indicted on 23 counts related to wire fraud, identity theft, and other charges, has not faced conviction but stands accused of misusing campaign funds for opulent purchases. The bipartisan vote, tallying 311 to 114, signaled robust support for expulsion, with a marginally higher number of Republicans opting to retain Santos.
Questions loomed as Speaker Johnson left the chamber, his silence leaving the fate of the ongoing government spending battle uncertain. According to reports from Fox News, Democratic Rep. Steny Hoyer emphasized the non-partisan nature of the decision, asserting that members concluded Santos had tarnished the House’s reputation and was unfit for representation.
Within the GOP, conflicting opinions emerged, with Rep. Darrell Issa arguing against expulsion, citing the presumption of innocence. The tight-lipped stance of the House Ethics Committee played a pivotal role in the deliberations.
Conversely, members of the New York Republican delegation, led by Rep. Marc Molinaro, asserted Santos’ commission of crimes, justifying expulsion based on a comprehensive investigation.
Santos himself predicted the outcome in an exclusive morning interview on “FOX & Friends.” This vote not only underlines the House’s rare use of expulsion powers but also sets a critical precedent in handling members facing severe legal challenges.
