  • Musk tweeted "Love me tender" with music notes

    People think he'll make a tender offer. He has to show he has sufficient funds, though. There are no competing offers, so analysts say if he has the money he'll own Twitter.

  • Musk bought like 10% of Twitter stock

    Stock rose 25%. It went down a bit in the following days, but is still up significantly.

    A few days earlier he engaged with the public on his Twitter, asking about if Twitter respects democracy and stuff and what should be done, and people wondered if he might buy a majority in Twitter for a few billion.

    A few days after buying his 10% in stoc, he offered to buy all of Twitter for like $40b or something. It wasn't accepted. News is discussing it.

  • Sometimes people are making anti-suicide statements

    John McAfee did this a while ago, I guess when he first started to become concerned he would be 'suicided,' as people are calling it (coining a verb the way we coined 'disappeared' for what happens frequently in China and like Russia).

    He had made a video statement, where he said he was not suicidal and he wouldn't be, and expressed his reasons why not, and said if he was ever reported to have committed suicide, it would be false.

    But this year I've seen another person, a YouTuber, make a similar statement. And whenever YouTubers blog on controversial issues, many of the comments ask or mention this possibility for them.

    ... first time a woman does it. Some in the past have even said that due to women's bodies they couldn't. She's 15, and was expected to win the Gold, but tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs, or something like that.

  • Mexican president Andres Obrador had sent a letter to Trump before Trump's term was over, saying he should pardon Assange

    Obrador got no response.

    Now, it is reported Obrador has made statements saying something like he would offer Assange asylum in Mexico.

    This is all according to things Obrador said publicly.

  • San Jose police officer quits to speak out against vaccine mandate

    "When we received a email saying that you're gonna have a vaccine by a certain date or face discipline up to and including termination, I took it as a threat. Because I don't plan to be vaccinated. And I decided to turn in my badge so I could speak up cause others can't for fear of losing their job," David Gutierrez told Fox News.

    In Gutierrez's case, he didn't want to put the thing in his body for religious reasons.

     
  • Report shows CIA had made plans that included options to kill Assange in the embassy in London


    In 2017 the CIA under Pompeo (although the report showed the plans predated Pompeo although he pushed it forward) and the Trump Admin did some work making possible plans to kidnap and possibly kill Assange.

    The following statement can be attributed to Freedom of the Press Foundation (FPF) executive director Trevor Timm:

    “The CIA is a disgrace. The fact that it contemplated and engaged in so many illegal acts against WikiLeaks, its associates, and even other award-winning journalists is an outright scandal that should be investigated by Congress and the Justice Department. The Biden Administration must drop its charges against Assange immediately. The case already threatens the rights of countless reporters. These new revelations, which involve a shocking disregard of the law, are truly beyond the pale.”

    Trump, as everyone knows, called Assange a hero when he was running for pres, and people looked for him to pardon Assange before he left the White House, but he didn't, although he pardoned other people.

    The US has been trying to have Assange extradited from England to the US for trial, and now people are asking if a nation can legally extradite someone if they had made plans to possibly kill them. Experts say the UK could continue without paying attention to this all, because it's considering on very narrow grands the legitimacy of the US's appeal merits.

    According to YahooNews, the some Obama officials looking at reclassifying Assange and related journalists Glen Greenwald and Laura Poitras (who were working on the Snowden documents at the time), as 'information brokers,' which would allow the government to get around a lot of legal guidelines they're expected to follow which prevented them from mounting various types of offensives against the journalists.

    A random commenter on this story wrote, "CIA wanted to assassinate a journalist? They're no better than the Saudi's with Jamal Khashoggi if that's the case. DISGUSTING!"

  • Assange case: Bit of progress for US gov side

    Many are heartbroken.

    Last January a London court (Judge Baraitser) ruled he couldn't be extradited to the US over concerns of 'risk of suicide' (and some mental health concerns) while not opposing the US gov on the more central political issue.

    In the US's appeal, now Britain's High Court has granted permission to the US to expand their grounds for appealing the decision to not send Assange to the US.

    Next trail date is Oct 29.

  • Assange case witness says he lied to US officials to get immunity

    Many have commented that the mainstream media have been quiet about this revelation.

    Assange has been in a UK prison since April 2019 since Equador gave him up (removed their protection of him in their embassy in London). Extradition to the US for trial was recently denied, but not on the merits on the case, but rather on humanitarian grounds.

    The Icelander, who back in the early Wikileaks days had been a volunteer, had been convicted of forgery, fraud and some 'sex crimes,' and is, according to Assange's legal representatives, a dubious source.

  • John McAfee died in a Spanish Prison, June 23, 2021

    Age 75, after a life full of stories and adventure, and being very vocal about his beliefs.

    He was found hanged in a Spanish prison. He had been arrested 9 months earlier trying to board a plane from Barcelona to Istanbul on a British passport--he was arrested on a US warrant for tax evasion.

    In 2019, he said he hadn't payed taxes for 8 years for ideological reasons.

    His lawyer said McAfee had said that, given his age, if sentenced for tax evasion, he could spend the rest of his life in jail. (Up to 10 for tax evasion, up to 20 for securities fraud.)

    Some think his death was not by suicide. In 2019 he tweeted he was getting subtle messages from the government they were going to kill himself [sic] and that if he suicided himself, he didn't, and got a tattoo that says '$WHACKD.' In Oct 2020 about a month after his arrest he tweeted, 'I am content in here. I have friends. The food is good. All is well. Know that if I hang myself, a la Epstein, it will be no fault of mine.'

    Other people have also referenced Epstein when talking about McAfee's death.

    Camera footage from inside the prison and an autopsy report have not been made available at this point.

    Some people think he might have set up a 'dead man's switch' to leak information about elites after his death, particularly considering his tech-savvyness.
