X.Com – Newest Venture for Elon Musk?

Elon Musk Just Teasing Us?

Cristal M Clark

I admit, I am fan of Elon Musk, as many in my professional position are, we tend to follow his hiring practices, his advice on how we interact with and invest in employees, not to mention he seems like a pretty chill guy for a billionaire. He is remarkably intelligent as far as making solid business decisions go, many in the business community look at Elon Musk as a mentor if you will. 

Now it seems he is teasing the public with a new idea – X.com, which would be his own social media website and honestly, I’d use it. The news is in response to a tweet asking what Elon’s plans were if his deal to purchase Twitter does not go through.

I know everyone has heard Elon planned on purchasing Twitter and he still might but the two have been arguing a bit of late over the number of Bots on Twitter. 

Which is a real concern, Twitter as I would imagine FaceBook and other social media sights do not seem to mind the extra padding of bots on the sites that count as users when they are seeking advertising dollars, investors or are looking to sell outright. 

Elon’s feeling is something like this:  He contends that the social media company isn’t producing the names of employees who are specifically responsible for evaluating how much of Twitter’s customer base is made up of spam and robot accounts.

Which is a credible argument particularly when it comes to Twitter. In part Twitters valuation is based on the number of users it has, but if they are not bothering themselves with counting how many real users they actually have compared to spam and robot accounts why should Elon even purchase Twitter then? 

Elon did get into a bit of hot water for even the very threat of backing out  of the deal over this and he is the one who got into trouble? That is fucking insane right? 

Let’s say that you own a company and you need to get some outside sales going, so you are looking to purchase an advertising list, and you are trying to vet the company that is trying to selling you that list but, you are not allowed to ask for proof of anything like, are the names, email address, phone numbers or people on the list even real? You just have to buy it at whatever value that company says the list is worth and take your chances.

Like any advertisers or investors who already are with Twitter do? Do they not want to know the truth? 

That’s cheating and it’s also misleading the markets. But who am I to judge right?

The mainstream media does not often paint the picture in the reality it truly is however, this is the nuts and bolts as to why Elon Musk still may try to back out of the Twitter deal and, rightfully so.  

One of the main reasons that I stopped posting regularly on both Twitter and Facebook were the number of fake accounts in addition to the frequent and rather rampant slip ups where user information is stolen and then sold on the dark web, as well as all of the goddamn hacking of the accounts where a user account gets locked out for the actual user and some arse hole hacker is in it delightfully fucking about. 

X.com and Elon do have a bit of history by the way, according to Yahoo Finance Elon purchased X.com in 2017 from PayPal, of which he is a former CEO.

Elon actually co-founded X.com in 1999 as an online bank, which was before the website was merged with a competitor in 2000. Elon then bought X.com back 17 years later.

According to Elon the domain has “great sentimental value” which he planned to use an umbrella website that would lead users to Elon’s other ventures like Tesla and SpaceX.

It is looking like Elon might still have to purchase Twitter, what he does with that and the idea of X.com after that is completely up to him, either way if he is in charge of either I would certainly feel like an actual adult would be in the room and start to do a much better job of protecting the actual users and report real data rather than inflated numbers because of the bot or fake accounts.

Threats of Violence Over Search of Trump’s Mar-A-Lago Home

Real Threats or Just Talk?

Cristal M Clark 

When it comes to Trump supporters it’s hard to determine if the threats online are real or just talk. Apparently, when news started to break about the FBI’s search of Trump’s home in search of documents that were stolen and should have been in the presidential archive, staunch supporters of Trump began to post violent rhetoric which started to circulate on Pro Trump internet forums. 

Many of the pro Trump forums urged for a civil war. “Lock and Load” being one of the top comments, others read, “I’m just going to say it. Garland needs to be assassinated. Simple as that.” “Kill all feds,” reads another. 

And probably the most sickening was that users encouraged others to post the address of the judge they believe signed off on the search warrant. “I see a rope around his neck,” a comment under a picture of the judge read.

By the way, this is the same forum that researchers previously found talk of violence and discussion on how to attack police officers in the weeks leading up to the January 6, 2021, attack on the United States Capitol. 

Comments by a convicted US Capitol rioter, Tyler Welsh Slaeker were also in the mix so clearly that conviction means very little to him. 

Daniel J. Jones, a former US Senate investigator had this to say: “We are seeing conspiratorial rhetoric from elected officials, political leaders, and political entertainers that is fuelling calls for real-world violence, the conspiratorial and divisive rhetoric from elected officials and others who should know better is continuing to undermine our institutions and democracy at an alarming rate.”

Quite Right Daniel is. Unless something is done to put a stop to this violent hate speech and rhetoric, it will continue and it will in fact, continue to inspire and incite threats and acts of violence. 

The Fed’s executed a search warrant because they believed that additional classified information remained at the private club, Mar-A-Lago after the National Archives retrieved more than a dozen boxes of White House documents from the resort earlier this year, people familiar with the matter said.

The Fed’s would not have asked to execute that warrant had they not been given sufficient and credible reason to do so. 

Trump is a treasonous bastard who, has never tried to hide that. He proved over and over again his willingness to lie and cheat all throughout his presidency. 

We have laws in this country that prohibit him from keeping any White House Documents at his personal home. 

Perhaps Trump’s supporters should make up their minds, either you are for our laws or not, when it was Hillary Clinton they were all for giving her an anal cavity search, but when it comes to Donald Trump and documents he should not have at home, well how dare the Fed’s?

The absurdity of Trump supporters double standard is absolutely without a doubt the most fucked up thing that I have ever seen, it’s so ridiculously stupid that it is pathetic.

American Apparel Company Selling T-Shirts that Read “Give Violence a Chance”

Facing FTC Fine Over It’s Lies 

Cristal M Clark 

Utah-based Apparel Company Lions Not Sheep and its illustrious owner, Sean Whalen are known for some less than impressive clothing gear what they were not really known for was taking you, the consumer for a ride. 

This Lions Not Sheep is best known for selling clothing items that depict former President Donald Trump as the Terminator and feature military-style firearms as well as apparel that champions the Second Amendment along with violence. 

At any rate, what most people purchasing the companies clothing did not know, this all American company that promises American made apparel isn’t really selling American made, just the catch phrases as it were, as they were straight up busted ripping out the “Made in China” labels and sewing in their own hand made, “Made in USA Labels.”

That’s right, According to the FTC, the company added fake “Made in USA” labels to clothing that had been imported from China and other countries. The FTC however did not identify the other countries.

The FTC saw fit to fine Utah-based Lions Not Sheep along with owner Sean Whalen, after the Federal Trade Commission found that the company falsely claimed its imported apparel is made in the U.S.

In addition to that fine, under a 12-page order from the FTC, the company and its owner must “stop making bogus made in the USA” claims and “come clean about foreign production.”

As well as, any qualified Made in USA claims must include “a clear and conspicuous disclosure” about the extent to which the product contains foreign parts, ingredients or components, or processing.

The fine was just over $200K, but either way I doubt very much that Sean Whalen agree’s with the FTC’s decision here, it’s been reported after all that he did have a FaceBook post from 2020 where he says that the shirts he purchases are from China? 

The real question is, why the in the bloody hell would he think he can market that as made in the USA? So, if you had been purchasing this clothing I would venture to guess that you are the sheep who had in fact followed the lion.

Martin Shkreli Has No idea What an IQ Test Is

Yet Want’s you to Believe He is the Smartest Human Being Ever

Cristal M Clark

Show of hands, does anyone know what an IQ test really is? Better yet, how many individuals who have an above average IQ actually feel the need to inform you of that?

Right, no one.

Martin Shkreli took an IQ test and claims to be of superior intellect however, the test results do not appear to show that.

First, let’s get to what an IQ test really is.  

Way back in 1905, psychologists Alfred Binet and Théodore Simon designed a test for children who were struggling in school in France. The test was designed to determine which children required individualised attention, their method formed the basis of the modern IQ test.

Today’s IQ tests measure a variety of skills like working memory, fluid reasoning, verbal comprehension and more. But the science suggests IQ tests are still not well equipped to provide meaningful scores for these separate abilities and should be interpreted only as measuring someone’s overall general intelligence. 

Hence the current test do not truly measure an individual’s true level of intelligence nor are they designed to prove to you that someone is of far superior intellect unlike Martin would like to mislead you into believing. 

So, the reality is that you could be a complete idiot and still be able to have a working memory, fluid reasoning, verbal comprehension and so on and not be remarkably intelligent at all.

Which brings us to Martin Shkreli, who took an IQ test live but was it really all that live if not just yet another ploy? 

Martin submitted to a voluntary IQ test and streamed it online. The stunt took roughly 45 minutes and, showed a score of a puny 129, putting him in the “above average or bright” category yet not as far superior as he claims he is. Now he did have someone coddling him as well and stroking his ego, like men of who suffer form some form of penile disfunction so need in order to feel superior. 

The Coddler is someone named Taylor Warfield and she says that she  Martin’s director of communications and went on to claim that he had scored 129 on the “first half” of the test, and that his final score was 258. 

Yet Martin admitted during his live stream that his IQ is only 129.

Clearly two idiots, made for one another. 

Martin has claimed in the past to have an IQ of 159 and this test, the actual live version showed that to be quite untrue. In fact, the doctor who performed the original psychological evaluation reported that Martin had multiple psychological issues, including generalised anxiety disorder, major depressive disorder and unspecified personality disorder which, would more than likely fall along the lines of someone who has narcissistic traits, I would assume. Feelings of grandeur certainly fall under that category which we all know Martin suffers from.

At any rate, Martin was previously subjected to an IQ test as part of a full psychological evaluation before his sentencing hearing. At the time, he wrote in a letter that he wanted to have the evaluation circulated widely, because “I want to watch the press squirm when they see I have a 150 IQ and no overt psychological issues.”  

Look, let’s be completely honest here, criminals even at Martin’s level are not well known to be of above average intelligence, not even close, they are gifted with the ability to easily con people, or find ways to make money that prey on insurers, people, systems that are not necessarily illegal. 

That does not in any way make them remarkably intelligent at all, it makes them quite the opposite and a complete waste of potential talent, someone we could help make incredibly intelligent if they were not trying to scam the system, but who would rather rob everyone and the system blind. They just know how to steal, con, rob and hurt people which is something most criminals with psychological issues do, on the daily.

Red Flags – Missed by United States Law Enforcement and Judicial System

Does Our System Actually Know How to Act on Them?

Cristal M Clark 

The answer to that would be overwhelmingly no. A new bipartisan gun law, signed by President Joe Biden last month, has a provision that encourages states to enact “so-called” red flag laws that allow police to temporarily remove guns from people who are at extreme risk of harming themselves or others, including intimate and domestic partners. 

Very rarely however, will that happen in all actuality because no one really knows how to act upon these “red flags.” 

Some will take it too far whilst others not far enough and even worse some law enforcement groups are refusing to act upon any sort of red flag laws over the second amendment right to bear arms. 

“The Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home.”

Naturally, the worry for many is that It simply is yet another law that will do very little in the way of curbing gun violence and mass shootings. 

Look realistically, law enforcement and the system if you will could have and should have been doing more than what they were before this new law, this is unlikely to change much. 

How many recent mass shooters have taken to social media prior to a mass shooting and nothing was done to stop them? Many were reported by people who knew them and nothing was done to stop them, they delightfully went on to kill. 

Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting found that from 2017 through 2020, law enforcement repeatedly ignored even the most glaring signs that a victim was at high risk of being killed.

Now to be quite fair here, the blame should not be thrown at just law enforcement, we do have an entire legal system that starts with the coppers, then a DA and then a Judge. 

The coppers cannot file charges that will not stick which is how most cities, municipalities and states operate, hence if the DA is unwilling to file charges because they do not think that they can win, people walk free to kill. 

Which is a significantly large part of what is wrong with our system, we focus on winning cases rather than, the fucking law and protecting society. 

The Guardian reported that: “according to more than three dozen interviews with domestic violence and criminal justice experts around the US, most law enforcement agencies provide little or no training in how to recognise red flags or how to use them to protect victims and their families.”

Now, during my own time working in and around law enforcement what does happen is that law enforcement officers typically have very little to no empathy for a victim, especially if they keep going back to an abusive partner, so they tend to overlook or dismiss warning signs or red flags rather. Law enforcement fails in so many compounding ways with domestic violence cases they fail even more when comes to threats of mass shooters. 

The same thing happens when people report parents, friends, they report social media posts, co-workers report concerns, bystanders, law enforcement and our legal system are not trained or simply no longer care because I have seen that too. They feel under appreciated and are less likely to actually look for the warning signs much less to act to upon them. 

When it comes to reporting non partners who might be a potential high risk individual who is making threats of mass shootings, or engaging with groups who threaten domestic terrorism, well law enforcement and our legal system have no idea whatsoever as to how to deal with that.  

And on the other hand when they do see warning signs they fail to act, whilst they do make the effort it’s actually very little, police, prosecutors and courts more often than not do not follow through.

What that plays out like is they will tell someone they are not allowed to have weapons but they do nothing in the line of making sure any legally owned guns are turned over nor do they return to anyone’s home to ensure that they have no guns that they should not have. 

Right now in the United States we are seeing soaring rates of gun violence, over half of which could be prevented if our system knew how to act upon these red flag laws. 

When you hear law enforcement and the system say things like, “it was just a post on social media, or he/she said it in anger but we cannot do anything unless they act upon it,” it is clear that they do not understand the meaning of red flags. 

Whilst many here in the United States do have high hopes for Red Flag laws, unless police, our Judicial System and Courts actually know how to deal with, look for Red Flags and actually act upon them, this is just another law on the books that will do very little if anything to change things.

Donald Trump – Prison Orange Might Clash with Trump’s Skin Tone

As Donald Trump’s Legal Team Prepares for Criminal Charges

Cristal M Clark

Quite a few American’s agree that, Donald Trump should be in prison over the January 6th insurrection at the Capitol. In fact as of now, his very own legal team is preparing for criminal charges to be handed down, according to Rolling Stone, whilst Trump worries about prison orange clashing with his unnatural skin tone.

The January 6 committee and all of the witnesses thus far are in fact proving just how unhinged Donald Trump truly is. So far they have shown clearly the level at which he was willing to cause a war here on US soil had no bounds.

The question of course, becomes whether or not the Department of Justice is actually going to indict a former president let alone Donald Trump, the biggest con man in the world.

Let us not forget that the DOJ is reportedly now investigating Donald Trump’s specific actions surrounding the plot to overturn the election results and the ensuing insurrection suggests, that just it might be willing to charge Donald Trump.

If we are going to be completely honest, Trump did encourage the insurrection, wanted the then Vice President Mike Pence hung and demanded to be taken to the riots at the Capitol not to try to help stop them but, to cause as much mayhem and encouragement towards violent acts as humanly possible. 

He tried to bully state officials in Georgia to overturn the election results, sent out fake electoral officials and built up an army of solid American’s through lies. He played on their patriotism and used it against the United States Capitol because he did not get his fucking way.

What a wanker!

He used the good old fashioned American Patriot and is now hoping to utilise them as his scapegoats. 

Trump had been informed that some of his supporters who’d gathered in D.C. on the day of the riot were as a matter of fact, armed, yet demanded they be allowed in to hear his “Stop the Steal” speech anyway. Knowing that it would set off a chain of undoable events. Trump also assaulted a Secret Service agent after being told he could not march to the Capitol himself.

The former chief of staff was also in the Oval Office during a January 4, 2021, meeting in which attorney John Eastman pressured Pence to either suspend the Electoral College vote count and ask willing state legislatures to reexamine their results, or just reject Joe Biden’s win outright.

Mike Pence’s chief legal counsel, was present at that same meeting, and told the January 6 committee: “During that meeting on the fourth, I think I raised the problem that both of Mr. Eastman’s proposals would violate several provisions of the Electoral Count Act. Mr. Eastman acknowledged that was the case, that even what he viewed as the more politically palatable option would violate several provisions.”

Why in March, a federal judge wrote that Eastman and Trump very likely committed a crime in attempting to overturn the election, and noted that “the illegality of the plan was obvious.”

According to Rolling Stone, Trump reportedly believes that running for president will allow him to claim the investigation is a politically motivated witch hunt, while actually winning a second term will let him shut it down and possibly have anyone working on it, prosecuted. 

Will Attorney General Merrick Garland charge Trump or will he not, over fears of politicising the agency?

That question is really rather stupid the man broke the law, attempted to break several other laws, tried intimidate state and local officials over the election, incited a riot that led to an insurrection that promised violence and one that which a human being lost his life over.

Ahhh, let us not forget officer 42-year old, Brian Sicknick, who tried to stop rioters and suffered two strokes after the insurrection which ultimately caused his death, that was incorrectly ruled accidental. 

Donald Trump was elected and served as President of the United States and caused an insurrection politicising the untrue and used men and women who love this country, who are willing to fight tooth and nail for it. 

He, in fact politicised this and now it is time he pay the price for breaking the law and if our illustrious Attorney General is afraid to charge Donald Trump for his actions, weak Merrick Garland should not serve as an attorney general, anywhere. He should worry about the law and not the optics and narrative that Trump is clearly still controlling.

The one thing we know for sure is that if Trump is not charged to the fullest extent of the law, this nation’s already distrust of Government and Law Enforcement will only deepen and potentially push us closer to a disastrous breaking point.

Tesla Branded Cocaine?

The Sinaloa Cartel is Rebranding Cocaine

Cristal M Clark

Not to long ago Elon Musk made a joke about purchasing Coca-Cola just so that he could put the cocaine back into it. Obviously he did not purchase Coca-Cola but the joke was heard loud and clear by the Sinaloa Cartel who is now branding packages of cocaine with the Telsa logo as well as the Prada Label. 

It’s actually quite ingenious and as it turns out, in Mexico City authorities busted 4 men who were in the midst of moving 1.6 tons of cocaine through the capital earlier this week. The police in Mexico City have increased police operations against the Sinaloa Cartel operatives that are found to be working in and around Mexico City.

The cocaine had been found in 2 tractor trailers, along with a 3rd vehicle that was staged in an effort to protect the shipments. During the bust authorities found the drug’s packaging were stamped with the logos of Tesla and Prada.

It is rumoured that this is one of the largest bust for Mexico City and that whilst some of the drugs were en route to the Tepito neighbourhood, a good portion of the drugs were also earmarked to be sent here to the United States. 

Sadly sometimes Red Bull does not give you wings and you need a little something stronger. 

Whilst authorities were somewhat hesitant to truly identify the 4 men who had been arrested as being part of the Sinaloa Cartel, local media in Mexico City were quick to point that the 4 men in fact are part of the Sinaloa Cartel. 

It is said that the Mexico City police force is as war with the Sinaloa Cartel, on July the 12th the police engaged the cartel in a rather bloody shootout through the southern part of Mexico City, where 150 police thought it would be a good idea to engage the cartel in a gun battle. The cartel however, was found to be well armed and quite ready for the police. 

The Sinaloa Cartel was found to have a 50 caliber sniper rifle, grenades, and cache of numerous guns and high powered rifles. This left 14 alleged Sinaloa Cartel members arrested and later released due to lack of evidence while 4 officers were injured. 

Perhaps next time the police will have a better thought out plan other than engaging the cartel in a dangerous gun battle in the streets of Mexico City. 

I’m not sure how Elon Musk or Mario Prada feel about this but I give the Cartel a thumbs up here for the rebranding effort.

Robot Reaches Over and Breaks Childs Finger

AI Gone Awry

Cristal M Clark 

You know, I am all for AI if we could get things working properly and sorted correctly. I really am all for having IA all over. But when the robot breaks a kids finger, that I just cannot get behind.

In Moscow, Russia during a chess match I guess the robot got a we bit confused and reached out and broke a little kids finger. 

According to Moscow Chess Federation President Sergei Lazarev the robot broke a 7-year-old boy’s finger whilst they were playing chess during a tournament. 

During a match at the Moscow Chess Open last Thursday, the young chess player made a move on the board and did not give enough time for the robot to respond so the robot then grabbed his finger and broke it.

The federation had rented the robot several times before without incident, and have nothing to do with its programming. 

This is actually a good case in point where it is important to note that if you are going to play with robots at some point you will need to give them the ability to be human and think on their own. It actually needs to be built into the programming, which means that yes, they would have the ability to make decisions. Human nature is rife with error so it makes very little sense to have us determine when to make a move, the robot needs to study us and learn on its own. 

This little boy of course deserves a round applause, he returned to the match despite the broken finger.
