A week of successful launches for a certain billionaire investor.

Shootin’ for the Stars…

DM: ‘Burning the evidence before the new boss starts?’: Don Jnr and right wingers see giant leaps in their Twitter followers after Musk bid was accepted – as Obama and left wingers lose huge numbers amid speculation algorithm has been changed

  • Right wing figures on Twitter such as Florida’s governor, Ron DeSantis, and Donald Trump Jr have seen their number of followers soar
  • Left-leaning people like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Barack Obama have witnessed a noticeable drop in followers
  • The fluctuations have been dramatic since Monday, when Elon Musk’s $44 billion takeover of the company was confirmed
  • Twitter on Tuesday confirmed that the figures were organic, and were not due to any internal alterations to their operations
  • Trump Jr, however, did not believe the company and speculated that it was due to artificial restraints on right-wing figures finally being lifted
  • He claimed that the changes were being made before Musk’s team took over to avoid an embarrassing expose of their practices 

Nothing to see here … Move along…….. Riiiiiight???
Some of the numbers movement is related to some folks who’d dumped Twitter because it had become a POS, now returning, and some of the “moving to Canada if he” left taking a dump out of the years-long churning cesspool they helped foment. However, it’s not wrong to assume the Twitter STASI crew is trying to ‘rearrange the deck chairs’ before their reign sinks. They can deny it all they want but one thing remains. “Twitter is forever” as has been said. And no amount of scrubbing will erase the evidence. BTW, Makes ya wonder about, um, Facebook’s electronic ‘books’, eh?

Thank you! Mostly it’s the ‘bot squad’ that has several members constantly opening new accounts and stalking designated people until that person dumps their Twitter account.

Lawrence Richard: Elon Musk seems to throw shade as Truth Social passes Twitter on App store: The comment comes after Twitter agreed to Musk’s offer to purchase the platform … You have to wonder that the uptick in social media site that the conservatives flocked to for free speech not allowed on old Twitter, is possibly the left now infiltrating these other conservative friendly sites in order to make trouble. Truth Social, if you aren’t aware, is the social media site built by Pres. Trump and Devin Nunes. Yesterday, I did see one leftist signing out from Twitter and insisting she was going to GETTR, a social media site that the conservatives have been using as an alternative for months.

It really is all about silencing anyone and everyone who is not chanting the leftist narrative line.

Brandon Gillespie: Critics blast Adam Schiff as ‘king of disinformation’ following his concerns about Musk’s Twitter purchase: Schiff has faced years of criticism for spreading misinformation on Trump-Russia collusion

Richard Hanania @RichardHanania is indeed trolling. The full tweet thread is pretty funny, and a lot of people bought it.

Twitchy: Elon Musk weighed in on the Hunter Biden and Sussmann stories and there’s not enough popcorn in the world for what’s about to happen

The contamination clean-up is always worse than the toxic spill…

The left always hates when what they stole is taken away from them…

Megan Fox: [WATCH] Amazon Employees Hold Secret Zoom Meeting Plotting to Ban Conservative Children’s Book

Paula Bolyard: Leaked Audio Shows Twitter Execs Trying to Comfort Staff in All-Hands Meeting

DM: Woke Amazon staffer cries in meeting to discuss the ‘trauma’ caused by best seller children’s book ‘Johnny the Walrus’ that compares being transgender to pretending to be a walrus … The crazy left are now like the worms that frantically crawl up out of the ground when it rains, only to wither in the sun and air and/or be eaten by birds.

Onto Other News:

Yes, there is other news in the newsfeed…

Biden Crapola:

I did it all for you, “Big Guy”— Well, 10% … I did 10% for you, “Big Guy”. Yeah.

Miranda Devine (4/4/22): Throwing Hunter Biden under the bus won’t be enough to clear Joe

But tell us what you really think, Hunter…

Jessica Chasmar , Cameron Cawthorne: Hunter Biden ripped Bill Clinton as ‘a–hole’ who ‘looks like s—,’ said Clinton aides are ‘greedy’: Emails – ‘Petty, Greedy, Venal, Low Rent bulls–t is what it is,’ Hunter Biden said about Clinton aides double dipping on salaries … Well, you know the Clinton Foundation had its own grifts going on at the time and were obviously in competition for those foreign big bucks the Bidens were working on. Safe to ‘assume’, ya know.

Bruce Golding: Joe Biden agreed to pay Hunter’s legal bills tied to Chinese firm deal: email

Eric Lendrum: Newly-Revealed Email Reveals that Joe Biden Paid Hunter’s Legal Bills over Chinese Firm Deal

#BuildBackBrandon …

Tyler Olson: Thune, GOP senators push bill to ban Biden from canceling student debt, as president mulls ‘executive action’: Federal student loan payment pause currently set to expire at end of summer

Pretty sure this kicks Americans out of jobs (again) & boosts China’s LED production (again). Too bad the China leg of the supply chain could eventually have us in the dark. No worries. All part of the plan, cold, dark & hungry.

Breanne Deppisch: Biden finalizes rule to ban incandescent lightbulbs, reversing Trump

Thomas Catenacci: Biden Blocks Oil Drilling On Millions Of Acres Of Land As Gas Hits $4.13 Per Gallon … Just a reminder that Brandon is ‘Selling Out U.S. Oil Reserve’ to Europe.

VIDEO: Sen. Marco Rubio rips Biden admin for ‘encouraging’ border crisis: ‘It’s a joke’

Paul Bedard: Sheriffs shocker: ‘No border left’: President Joe Biden’s 15-month dismantling of U.S.-Mexico border protections and policies has essentially eliminated efforts to keep illegal immigrants out of the nation, according to the nation’s front-line sheriffs.

Lisa Schiffren: Impeach Mayorkas: Alejandro Mayorkas has flouted the nation’s immigration laws and effectively opened America’s borders. It’s time for him to go.

Anders Hagstrom: Biden admin to comply with court order blocking removal of Title 42 border restrictions: Biden’s fellow Democrats were critical of his plan to end the restrictions … Title 42 is a health measure that was trying to keep untested, unvaxxed, and infected illegal aliens out of the U.S.. But hold the phone, y’all, Dr. “The Science” Fauci just might have an avenue out for old Joe now…

Midterm Election Cycle Politically Calculated COVID “Relief”:

Lawrence Richard: OUT OF THE WOODS? Fauci makes a bold declaration about the end of the pandemic in America … US is ‘certainly’ out of the ‘pandemic phase’. Fauci still suggested people get vaccinated yearly and ‘longer’ than they might expect


Callie Patteson: Vice President Kamala Harris tests positive for COVID-19 … Now she’s “seeing it with her own eyes! WITH HER OWN EYES!” How exciting. BTW, Harris is “fully vaxxed and twice boostered”, so, there’s that.

Twitchy: COVID positive. Double-boosted. No symptoms. So, why is Kamala Harris now taking Pfizer’s Paxlovid?

Twitchy: Will journos and President Biden follow the science now that Anthony Fauci says it’s too risky for him to attend the Nerd Prom? … So, you see, broke-back Fauci can’t seem to quit COVID, even after he says something 180 degrees different moments before. THAT is exactly how this bloke has operated for over two years.

Rick Moran: CDC Says 3 in 5 Americans Have Been Infected by COVID at Least Once

Chris Donaldson: Pfizer seeks FDA emergency use approval on booster jabs for kids 5-11 years old … Admit this was a bio-weapon and these last two years have been one long experiment on the mass public. It would primarily explain why the off-brand therapeutics were so demonized and banned and doctors threatened with career death if they dared prescribe them to infected/sick patients. Why? Because in a phased clinical study it ruins the data/results if something outside the strict protocol is allowed in.

Chris Donaldson: Dr. Deborah Birx dials up the hyperbole to hawk new tell-all Trump trashing book

Terresa Monroe-Hamilton: Tucker Carlson warns Kevin McCarthy is poison for GOP, ‘a puppet of the Democratic Party’

Robert Jonathan: Senator squeals on government ‘spending porn’, ‘$530,000 to a group called Hookers for Jesus’: U.S. Sen. John Kennedy called out both Republicans and Democrats over their failure to get serious about stopping wasteful federal government spending, which includes more than a half a million dollars for an organization called Hookers for Jesus, as well as sending checks to dead people…

When “Marriage” no longer has meaning:

Welp, here’s hoping that if they’ve had any ‘vax’ it’s the HPV vax— and here’s hoping it’s more effective than that ‘other vax’…

Ben Cost: Man with 9 wives has ‘sex schedule’ to ‘fulfill my sexuality at any cost’

Look, they’re not even holding hands in their wedding picture. *tisk-tisk*. What’s even more nuts is there are lawyers that would take his side in a divorce case…

Brooke Kato: ‘Fictosexual’ man married hologram bride, but now struggles to bond with her
