The song remains the same

Looks like Elon Musk is getting Trumped by FederalGovCo.

A court filing made public just yesterday revealed that Elon Musk is under federal investigation related to his $44-billion takeover deal for Twitter, Inc., the social media company.

Apart from yesterday’s announcement that Musk was being investigated by the Feds, there was another bit of news.

Ian Bremmer, head of the Eurasia Group political risk consultancy, alleged that Musk had personally told him about the conversation with President Putin.

Musk denied he spoke to Putin about the intervention in Ukraine.

Federal investigation and allegations of being in contact with Putin?

Where have we heard this before?

The tone and content of the probe demands and the investigations seem reminiscent of hoaxes against Trump.

It has to be remembered that government agencies do not need any probable cause to investigate.  An allegation made could be enough.

This is exactly what happened during the Trump-Russia Collusion hoax. The hoaxers couldn’t tell how Russia meddled with the 2016 elections or if votes were altered. They couldn’t cite the laws that were broken or how votes were altered. They just didn’t like the outcome of the election and were doing all they could to unseat President Trump.

The “investigators” know that every human has his limit of endurance; they probably hoped that someday Trump would think, “I am a multi-billionaire, I have a great life, I don’t need this” and walk away from politics forever.

That didn’t happen, and hence myriad baseless investigations continue to this day.

They live in hope that a breaking point will be reached. The other objective of this persecution of Trump is to prevent any other aspiring private citizen from entering politics by challenging the D.C Democrat establishment and the Deep State.

This is exactly what seems to be happening with Musk.

What liberals fear the most is any challenge to their monopoly. Musk has been championing free speech and expressing support for Republicans. Musk has been violating the D.C. Democrat groupthink over and over again and has been enjoying the free publicity he gets from being provocative and amassing a significant following for it.

It is hard to say if Musk is a real disruptor or merely addicted to publicity.

But the D.C. establishment doesn’t like challengers and dissenters.

You’d think the Deep Staters would choose easier targets to pick on than two of the wealthiest celebrities on earth, but apparently their arrogance and emboldenment is so vast as to convince them they’re both invincible and untouchable. They badly, badly need to be taught otherwise, without further ado.

Many years ago, we made sport of Iran’s Mooselimb leadership when they denounced the US as “the Great Satan,” the USSR being “the Lesser Satan.” The characterization was self-evidently absurd, nothing more than a really piss-poor joke, not a thing to be taken at all seriously. Now, though, with each new and more outrageous FederalGovCo insult to all that’s good, fair, and decent, it begins to seem as if the Mad Mullahs may have had a pretty good point after all.

  1. It is a training for ALL of us..tow the line or get mowed, we will see how much is too much

  2. In Trump’s case, only the official position has suffered any legal action, wrong though it is. Musk has the means and $$$ to fight any investigation, if it is even true. That twitter asserts it is proof of little to anything.

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free."
