Musk Tweets about Taking Tesla Private, Subjects Tesla to SEC Investigation

Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Inc., has come under scrutiny this week after tweeting that he would take Tesla private at $420/share, and that he had funding secured.  Now, Musk must face his critics, as well as his shareholders regarding this announcement. The notion to take Tesla private stems from the fact that the company has faced loads of scrutiny after missing self-imposed deadlines to beef up production of the Model 3, and how these delays have greatly impacted Tesla’s already dwindling cash reserve.  According to Musk, Saudi Arabia’s sovereign-wealth fund, which currently owns a 5% stake in the company, has consistently contacted him over the past 2 years concerning allocating financial support to take the company private. [more...]

Mapping the U.S. Farm Subsidy $1M Club
By Adam Andrzejewski, Author of “Operation Drain the Swamp”

During the Great Depression, farm subsidies were created to keep the family farm afloat and ensure a stable national food supply. Today, these subsidies have grown so lucrative that wealthy investors, large corporations, and farm-estate heirs use taxpayer money to maximize their personal return on investment. Since 2008, however, the top 10 farm subsidy recipients each received an average of $18.2 million – that’s $1.8 million annually, $150,000 per month, or $35,000 a week. With the median household income of $60,000 a year, these farmers received more than 30 times the average yearly income of U.S. families. It was never the intent of Congress to create a new class of millionaires through federal farm subsidies. Yet, the subsidies continue to flow. [more...]

Robert Spencer Banned from Two Platforms

The fascism is coming down fast. I’ve now been banned from Patreon and GoFundMe. The authoritarian Left is working energetically now to ban all dissenting voices, in the run-up to the 2018 elections. We haven’t seen the last of the bannings. It’s clear that I am in their crosshairs, and Muslim Brotherhood-linked Congressman Keith Ellison has already demanded that Amazon stop stocking books by people who are blacklisted by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Twitter Isn’t Removing Hatred, It’s Silencing Dissent

One of the last things that David Horowitz was able to tweet before his account was locked was a link to an article, “How the Left is Outsourcing Censorship of the Internet.” The article described how the left is using tech companies to silence political dissent. Not long after, @horowitz39 was locked by Twitter, which accused David Horowitz of violating its rules against “hateful conduct.” And that’s on a site which not only allows Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam, a violently racist hate group, to use its platform, but has turned a blind eye to his top tweet, “Thoroughly and completely unmasking the Satanic Jew and the Synagogue of Satan.” According to Twitter, there’s nothing hateful about that.

Providing Better Deals for Health Coverage
By Sally Pipes, President & CEO of the Pacific Research Institute

More than a dozen state attorneys general just sued the Department of Labor over a new rule that makes it easier for small businesses and self-employed individuals to form “association health plans.” AHPs enable these firms and sole proprietors to band together to negotiate with insurers for better deals for health coverage. The attorneys general claim the rule violates consumer protections in the Affordable Care Act. But the opposite is true - the rule will work to the great benefit of consumers. Since Obamacare’s many rules took full effect in 2014, the cost of insurance for small firms and self-employed people has skyrocketed. AHPs will grant them access to the affordable, high-quality health plans they want and deserve. [more...]

Socializing the Democrat Party

With their secret Internal polls apparently showing it may be political suicide that 57 percent of its voters now view socialism positively, but only 47 percent view capitalism favorably, the Democratic Party’s bosses are having their media comrades attempt a new party line. “Socialism does not mean government control,” their new propaganda line goes. “When young people favor ‘socialism,’ they merely mean the restoration of liberalism with a bit more welfare for the poor and a bit more social justice for the downtrodden. It’s nothing to be afraid of.” This attempt to sanitize the Democrats’ rapid shift and candidate scramble towards socialism is nonsense. [more...]
