Why he was so determined was that he wanted to interview Putin for years, but was ‘prevented’ by the agents of the 3letters of his government, and they admitted doing it, spying illegally on his phone and leaking it to Russia, scaring them away from granting an interview. He said that enraged him and fortified him in wanting to do it.

    Milei rompe los esquemas en Davos con una magistral oda al capitalismo - YouTube
    Milei took aim at Western 'collectivism'.
    'El colectivismo al inhibir estors procesos de descubrimiento y al dificultar la apropiacion do lo descubierto ha ata al emprendador de las manos y imposibilita producir mejores bienes y ofrecer mejores servicios a un mejor precio.'
    'Para entender que venimos a defender es imporante definir de aca hablamos nosotros cuando hablamos de libertarismo.' ... 'principio de no agresion, en defensa del derecho a la vida, a la libertad y a la propiedad, cuyas institutciones fundamentales son la propiedad privada, los mercados libres de intervencion Estatal, la libre competencia, la division del trabajo y la cooperacion social, donde solo se puede ser exitoso sirviendo al projimo con bienes de mejor calidad a un mejor precio.'
    'Nunca debe olvidarse que el socialismo es siempre y en todo lugar un fenomeno empobrecedor que fracaso en todos los paises que intento.'
    'Un mercado es un mecanismo de cooperacion social donde se intercambian voluntariamente derechos de propiedad.' ... 'la unica contexto en el que puede haber un fallo de Mercado es si hay coaccion, y el unico con la capacidad de coaccionar de manera generalizada es el estado que tiene el monopolio de la violencia.' 'ejempol regular monopolios destriorle las ganancias y destrozar los rendimientos crecientes automaticamente destruiria el crecimiento economico.'
    'El unico que devino esta agenda del feminismo radical es en mayor intervencion del Estado para entorpecer el proceso economico, darle trabajo a burocratas que no le aportaron nada a la sociedad ...'
    '... donde el Estado es el dueno de los medios de produccion.'
    He grouped all 'colectivistas' like nationalistas, globalistas, social democrats, keynsians, progresistas, populistas as 'en el fondo no hay diferencias sustantivas. Todos sostienen que el estado debe dirigir todos los aspectos de la vida de los individuos.
    'No se dejen amedtrentar ni por la casta politica ni por los parasitos que viven del Estado. No se entreguen a una clase politica que lo unico que quiere es perpeturarse en el poder y mantener sus privelegios. Ustedes son benefactores sociales. Ustedes son heroes. Ustedes son los creadores del periodo de prosperidad mas extraordinario que jamas hayamos vivido. Que nadie les diga que su ambicion es inmoral, si ustedes ganan dinero es porque ofrecen un producto mejor a un mojor precio, contribuyendo de esa manera al bienestar general. No cedan al avance el estado. El estado no es la solucion, el estado es el problema mismo. Ustedes son los verdadores protagonistas de esta historia, y sepan que apartir de hoy cuentan con Argentia como un aliado incondicional. ...Viva la libertad carajo!'

He said he doesn't care if people hate him, told blackmailing “” ad spenders to fuck off, and they will cause X to fail. A lot of the conversation was about ‘hate’ for Musk, ‘trust/not’ of Musk. He should learn to reframe this, since this is not a pleasant occurance, that people will even think of hate/not in the Musk conversation. He should just say his resume is public and long, and that he doesn't know how many times people need him to say the same thing but state it once more for them.

    Javier Milei: Feminist Ideology Is Destroying Argentina - YouTube
    ‘it is a violent action that harms the right to private property and in the end, limits our freedom.’
    'We believe that liberalism entails the unrestricted respect for the lives of others, rooted in a principle of non-aggression, and the defense of life, liberty, and property.

    Proposals from 3 bidders, reportedly.

    SBF took the stand, without the jury present, by his own choice. (Some time ago he'd also commented that he regretted filing bankrupcy that he knew he had the right to not do so but he'd be pressured to by his advisors or whoever, and that he only had his own self to blame.)

    SBF had been started to be painted by other people. I guess this can happen when you stay silent (which happens during legal proceedings, or when you don't want to be baited by unworthy intentions to engage with people of higher value). He's been painted as a fake genius who put on his famous appearance to look like a tech savant, etc. But now it seems he's showing who he is and speaking for himself, and I haven't heard any real missteps. He's blamed himself for errors, but hasn't of course taken any gratuitous contrition. To me he comes off as a scientist or engineer, dealing with things rationally, but it appears he has no malevolent or particularly avaricious intentions. Now people say he'll get destroyed by cross examination. They point out he hasn't been forthcoming on some of the things he was asked about, saying he didn't recall with confidence.

    Whatever happens in the trial now, on the other side of it SBF still is a person worth listening to and believing and seeing what he does. He retains his integrity, and maybe gets a bit more for chosing to speak for himself and by speaking show normal intentions, rather than playing law and hunkering down.


    SBF was convicted on all counts. People are saying the prosecution really went after him, but some have already raised the counter that the prosecution handed out plea deals and things left and right, and might have really only been going after SBF. Also, there might be something worth noting about SBF being a non legal(read:insincere and advantage-seeking) type of defendant. He's spoken openly and sincerely, not at all guardedly, to it seems everyone, including vloggers and the court. This is the kind of defendant its pretty easy for a prosecution to tear up.

They want to enjoy them.

  • People not liking Elon

    So he agreed to buy Twitter and now, after weeks of 'show me how many bots,' he's not going to buy it. Twitter is taking him to Delaware court to make him buy / pay a fine (capped at $1b someone said), and their case is strong.

    However, the Delaware Chancery Courts people have reportedly said they are concerned that even if they rule, Elon might just say nope not paying, and that reflects bad on them as an authority. Also, it's an extreme measure to make someone buy something they don't want to buy, although they have forced people to do so, but for like $500m not for like $20b.

    What people were talking bad about was that people can get so powerful and rich, no one wants to go after them. They're just like nope I can't get involved with that guy. That it's sort of 'flouting the institutions' of the country.

  • 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.

  • 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!"

    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.
