According to Musk

(daily wire) Billionaire Elon Musk on Monday slammed President Joe Biden/Brandon, saying he’s not really in charge.

The Tesla and SpaceX founder also said that inflation could spiral out of control if the U.S. government keeps simply printing money.

“The real president is whoever controls the teleprompter,” said Musk, who added he has voted “overwhelmingly for Democrats.”

“The path to power is the path to the teleprompter,” he said. “I do feel like if somebody were to accidentally lean on the teleprompter, it’s going to be like Anchorman,” the CEO added, referring to the 2004 film in which Will Farrell’s character Ron Burgundy will read whatever’s on the teleprompter.

“This administration doesn’t seem to get a lot done,” Musk said on the “All-In” podcast. “The Trump administration, leaving Trump aside, there were a lot of people in the administration who were effective at getting things done.”

Musk also commented on fellow billionaire Jeff Bezos’s assertion that the White House is using “misdirection” to “muddy the topic” of inflation.

“I mean, the obvious reason for inflation is that the government printed a zillion amount of more money than it had, obviously,” Musk said.

Amazon founder Bezos had said: “The administration tried hard to inject even more stimulus into an already over-heated, inflationary economy and only [Sen. Joe] Manchin [D-WV] saved them from themselves. Inflation is a regressive tax that most hurts the least affluent. Misdirection doesn’t help the country.”

Said Musk: “So it’s like the government can’t just, you know, issue checks far in excess of revenue without there being inflation, you know, the velocity of money held constant.”




Tesla CEO Elon Musk says his deal to buy Twitter can’t move forward unless the company shows public proof that less than 5% of the accounts on the social media platform are fake or spam. In his tweet Tuesday, Musk said that “20% fake/spam accounts, while 4 times what Twitter claims, could be much higher. My offer was based on Twitter’s SEC filings being accurate.”


Is CNN Circling the Drain?

DC and New York are flooded with speculation that a major shakeup is coming to the low-rated CNN. New CNN Worldwide CEO Chris Licht has reportedly asked underlings for all options on the table to include completely rebranding CNN back to an all news format from whence it came.

This would include a possible name change and a personnel bloodbath of opinion show hosts including Don Lemon and Jake Tapper.


Russian T-90 

It’s sort of a re-built T-72 but the Russians had a high opinion of its capacity to fight a NATO tank. It hasn’t done well in Ukraine, the graveyard of Russian armor. And there are a few of them at the bottom of the Donetsk River. They were touted as capable of crossing rivers…not so much and upside down when the bridge was shelled and gave way.

The Raconteur Report reminded me of something graphically in this regard. He compared the attractive Kelly McGillis when she starred in Top Gun and aggrieved and bitter Kelly McGillis today, turned lesbo, comparing them to the Russian Army when it was the USSR, 40 years ago, and today. The age gene took both Kelly M. and the Russians.

When I’m feeling particularly frosty toward a female of the species, I don’t refer to her as a cupid stunt, I refer to her as a “cat lady” – with no reference to the hot cat women in the Batman series. As a circumspect metaphor,  the Russian Army has become a “cat lady”.




  1. Back in Atlanta last January for a trade show we do every year that the Plandemic doesn’t cancel it out and every place downtown was open business as usual without masks EXCEPT the CNN Center which required them for entry with guards posted for your convenience and compliance. This in addition to the usual compliment of Atlanta’s Finest providing security for that pile of glass. I do so hope to live long enough to see that place turned to rubble and Lemon, Tapper and all them sumbitches they call friends be forced to tell the truth for a living.

    • I can’t see them telling the truth. Likely we’ll see them on MSNBC as CNN pivots to becoming a news channel. The OLD CNN – the first CNN had some solid international reporting.

      • They’ll never get the stink out of that building, it is far too contaminated for normal disinfectants, or maybe even napalm. Better to nuke it from orbit; that’s the only way to be sure.

        • The former Omni Hotel, what a dump. Saw a movie there a long time ago. The concrete was cut through to the dirt and we had to walk across boards to enter the indoor theater. Fitting that we saw Toxic Avenger 2. Also fitting that was the only place showing it.

          Ted got the place after he bought the Hawks.

          It was also the home of the Sid & Marty Krofft amusement park. Which seems to have laid the foundation for the CNN culture. Tapper’s from Liddsville, Lemon is one of Witchiepoo’s minions and Stelter is Sigmund. CNN the home of the Far Out Space Nuts & D.C. Follies.

          • It’s true, I’m so old that I remember when CNN wasn’t just good, it was the amazing new thing making the network news look stupid.

            I guess success breeds insanity / incompetence.


  2. i wonder how far behind them our military is….my fav gas station is running out of gas, half the pumps turned off, and the local cvs pharmacy is out of my bp meds. the medication is one of the most common on the market. not a big deal for most folks, their bp would only go up a few points if they didn’t have it. but mine keeps on going up and up w/o the meds and then pop goes the weasel in my head. but it’s just a temporary supply chain thing. i was on i81 yesterday, damn few trucks. it’s usually a solid wall in the right lane……just saw elon claim half of brandon’s 22mil twit followers are fake. i’d say he’s off by 11 mil.

    • The Twitter drama is playing out to be very interesting. I’m not a Twitter person per se. I don’t know who would follow Brandon. You know that addled old husk of a human (sorta) being isn’t tweeting. He’d be chatting about how fun it was to shower with his teenage daughter and BS like that. We know what his staff thinks because he reads it from his teleprompter.

      The medication issue reared its ugly head with Covid and the revelation that we don’t make even the most common medications in the USA and the supply chain from China was drying up. High blood pressure isn’t a joke.

    • Aren’t 11M and 22M the official and revised official numbers for “undocumented Americans”?

      • Those numbers are low. That being said, they may be the official numbers. The Brandon Administration with who knows whom at the helm – maybe Half Blood Prince? has a stated goal of doing as much damage as possible in four years.

        I know that you’re not at the billing end of the medical biz, but once the government started paying for free healthcare for democrat voters (I have to pay for the same insurance that illegal aliens and democrats get free), the system has been clogged, it takes forever to get an appointment and so forth. The question is what percentage of people in America come out of pocket for healthcare, vs the portion that feeds on tax revenue?

        • America should have voted for him because he’s an African American. And not half Afro-American – all Afro-American.

          • Funny how the Lib’s decided O was “our first black President”, thus achieving some cloud parting milestone where (they swear) the angels were singing a Hallelujah chorus. He’s blatantly half white. Never understood the weird fixation, other than the vacuous SJW narrative.

            Heck, I could be a different Hyphenate every day of the week, rotate thru, but won’t because the extra identifier is moronic. I’m American. Period.

  3. Interesting blog from Raconteur Report. We used to have a Ukrainian man who was a regular at the range. I haven’t seen him in months. Did he go home? Maybe. If so, I hope he’s doing well.

      • I was next to some “Chinese students” who rented an AR and shot it like they owned it.
        A couple guys near me remarked on how well they shot.
        I asked if they really thought those guys were students.
        It never occurred to them.

  4. Billionaires speaking out must have more of an impact on the elected elite than we dirt people.

  5. They were touted as capable of crossing rivers…

    Doubt it. I don’t know about the Abrams, but we pulled enough M-60s out to know anything over 3′ was too much for them to handle. M113s will float, but barely and are too slow to handle much of a current.

    • 1)
      March, 2031.
      USMC anphib tank sank near San Clemente Island (near San Diego, California) in about four hundred feet of water.
      After recovering the drowned marines and Navy corpsman, inspectors inspected the doomed vessel, condemning it as unfit for duty.
      Inspectors discovered none of the emergency flares were used.
      They also realized several pieces of essential equipment were in-op, including the genset and the bilge pump.
      Major sections of the hull lacked integrity, initiating the interior flooding.
      Investigators determined several crew lacked their swim cert.
      According to witnesses, the tank floundered forty-six minutes before sinking below the waves.
      The sinking was accelerated by the inexperienced troops opening the side door.
      None of the recovered corpses carried adequate PFD bouyancy to compensate for the gear they were required to wear
      After an impeccable twenty-one year career, their commander — Colonel C.J. Bronzi — was fired.
      I try to believe our’ team is better than ‘their’ team.
      My trust is constantly betrayed.
      Decades ago, I came to a couple conclusions:
      a — a standing army is most successful in controlling their friends and family.
      b — we have very little difference between us and them.
      If our military exists to eradicate foreign scoundrels, who will eradicate domestic scoundrels.

      • Lance Corporal Sweetwood was one of the Marines lost in that incident. I was close to him and am close to his family. The accident was tragic in the extreme. Conflating that with the situation in Ukraine is apples and oranges.

          • A tragedy to all the families and friends.
            And yes, I miswrote ‘2031’ instead of ‘2021’.
            I offer no excuse, other than my sadness over the loss of so much.
            Apparently, my editing eyes were distracted by an onslaught of tears.
            I offer my deepest humble apologies for stirring memories.

          • I wasn’t trying to nitpick, but I was really wrapping my head around the narrative since I’d never heard the story before. When Larry said he knew the gentleman I realized what was going on. My condolences to all around.

          • The loss of the LCVP was a shock to the family who had just lost another son in an auto accident. Grandpa won the DFC in Vietnam, shot down, made it out, career USAF. Grandfather was a pastor at Camp Pendleton and MCRD-San Diego. I know the family very well.

            The Marine Corps was running old junk and they should have known better.

  6. Musk is going to blow up Twitter, in addition to getting a chunk of the administration. Good on him! CNN is circling the drain and it’s time to pull the funding and let them implode.

  7. Musk is more “American” than half the people who were born here.

    CNN is past it’s sell-by date. They’re just another mothpiece for GlobalCorp.

  8. Musk has set the trap: Twitter lied on their SEC filings about the # of bots, Musk called them out and demanded the real numbers, now Twitter is begging him to honor the original deal and buy the site. LOL. The guy didn’t become the richest man on the planet by being dumb.

  9. Twitter has stated in government filings that the percentage of bots in its active user population is less than 5%. But Elon Musk has suspended his offer to purchase this company until he gets a better handle on what this real number is. Speculation in the business media is that the real number might be north of 90%! Wow! Per FletchersCastoria blog.

    • I don’t know how many bots there are, but once it comes out, Twitter may be finished. Maybe Musk can buy it for pennies on the dollar if he still wants it.

  10. TC announced tonight on his show that a forensic investigation was completed…half The Hologram’s 22million Twitter followers are bots. Every friggin thing the Left does or says, is fake and false and immoral.

    Twitter is done. Musk’s offer – likely he suspected before making it to hedge his bet – is null and void. They’ll start to beg him to resurrect it on the cheap. But watch, the haters on the Left will 180 their tune, screaming “this white capitalist is not holding up his end of a deal!”, conveniently forgetting Twitter lied…a lot.

    The Dems don’t want to, or are so inept they can’t, solve the problems they created…otherwise they would at least try. But they won’t. Chaos is their game, and they wallow in it.

    Aesop is usually spot on but from a different view, the hard reality one.

  11. If fraud is proven then the pressure on the other ad revenue based sites will be enormous to prove their users aren’t bots also.

  12. Raconteur is value, imo.

    Of course the Russians are totally incapable of building tanks and will soon be driven back to Moscow 🙂
