"I do too. I think there's so many surveillance devices in so many. Products now that I just think you're trying to stop your arm has been amputated and you're trying to fix it with one of those little band aids that you get in the swimming pool with when you have a good finger. Yeah, no, I hear you, but I've traveled to China and I can tell you that there are certain features on your phone that will not work and obviously social media platforms are not allowed. You will not have access to that. You are being surveilled and you are being allowed by their government what you can and can not do. I got an idea. I can fix this, okay? Okay. Okay. Have you started watching Star Trek discovery yet? You keep asking me that. Though I have not, I've been going to do it this summer. I've been busy podcasting, man. And now it's summer. So there you go. They're communicator badges, right? Which they do a good job of in the discovery TV show with like they actually have a little collector's case where it shows all the different visions of the badge. Cool. The little shot of that on the show. So how about we wear a device a la Star Trek communicator badge? Yeah. But instead of like talking to the ship there in orbit around the planet, it just emits some sort of white noise interference that NASA's with all the frequency recording devices. Think about it. You and I have done stuff many times where it's like, we're getting feedback from somewhere in that mic or that camera's mic is getting a weird where's that coming from, right? Right. It's so easy to do it unintentionally. What about creating a device that intentionally causes interference and it makes it unintelligible? Yes. Don't we already have that? Huh? Look, you guys, I understand somebody's gonna take this idea and they're gonna run with it, which is great. Maybe just give us a little nod here, you know. Yeah, you know, call it a PCG or just give us something out of this, right? Right. What would you say side? You were saying something? I was gonna say, you know what the Chinese government is doing right now? What? Marking down Elon Musk's social credit score. I love it. I love it. Well, hey, you know, there's been a lot of, there's been a lot of speculation with his endeavor into Twitter. And we shall see where that lands him. Exactly. Exactly. So, but there you have it. So Tesla's going to be banned for some weeks, sometimes due to political. Scrutiny, if you will. There you go. So, wow. So we got, let's pick one of the two. What are we going to go with? Baby, Jeep now. All right. And I want you guys, this is your baby right here, okay? Yep. All right, so I'm going to hand this one off to you guys. And I think that I need to hear from our youngest guru on this one. What he thinks too. Now I'm not sure how much you watch the show or listen to the show. Not as much as you should. I know that, okay? But it's the lantis. Announced we announced for them what Jay a couple months back that they were working on a fully electric Jeep 9. Correct. Not a plugin hybrid like in the four by E, but I fully electric. Fully electric vehicle. They called it an SUV. Right. I thought it looked a little bit more like it would be in the crossover category, but in styling it resembles the Cherokee. Right. Right. A little bit. Yeah. It does. You can see the resemblance there. It's like a small, yeah, it has the profile of that, yes. I agree with that. And we said, at the time, and here's where I'm going with this. We said at the time, huh, I wonder why they started with one that size. I wonder why they didn't start with the smaller one. Right. Here you go. Um. So, I mean, is it just, oh, I smacked a mic. Do you remember that conversation, right? I remember it. I remember it 100%. So now we have the smaller one, which the Internet is calling the baby Jeep. Okay. Now it's got the camouflage on it. You can see it right here in the picture. But cute, and a cute. It's like the type of car that's like, oh yeah, I'm an SUV. And in reality, it's like, no, that's just a really small crossover. Well, but, you know, you're getting into almost mini Cooper territory here now, right? You are. What? Would something like this potentially be used for or who potentially would go after this? Do you think this is a good idea? And if so, who's going to buy it? I think this is actually a pretty good idea, and I feel like it's a really good city car. So it's not too big, but it's like just big enough for daily things that you're going to do. And I feel like this is kind of an everyday car, which are always good sellers. Well, most of the time. Okay. So the obvious advantage here, Jay, to doing a smaller EV, one of the obvious advantages to me is price, right? You make a smaller vehicle, it's lighter, it costs less to produce. There's fewer components in it. You can sell it for less. Am I right? Absolutely. If this thing doesn't beat the pants off of some of the larger versions in range, I don't know that it's going to be successful for them. And here's what I mean by that. That thing better be able to get 50 to a hundred mile plugin range better than maybe a Mach-E or a larger crossover. Otherwise, what's the point? How much less is it going to cost? Right. That remains to be seen because I did not turn up any actual figures on what this thing may go for. Obviously, folks, this is a Stellantis venture with the Jeep name. Which in fact, and I want to bring this up, we did a real quick podcast on the Landis had basically took jeepster and they trade named it, right? Right. Or in copyrighted or whatever they did there. And we're like, what world they could do with that? And is this the BMW one series? Commonly referred to as the poor man's BMW. It's like, you can get a Jeep, you can get an electric Jeep. On the cheap. And here's what it is. Do you think that's going to use leverage the name? I think so, but you're talking, you've got three players here. Remember who's Stellantis is? Who's under that nameplate? You kind of wonder what Fiat's going to be used for, because it ain't working in the states. You've got to Peugeot will never happen in the U.S.. It has the Jeep front end. You wouldn't call it a Fiat with that front end, right? That's correct. But what they do go on to say is that Stellantis is used, some of the Peugeot features, the opal mocha,.

James, welcome back to Charlie Kirk show. Great to be with you, Charlie. What a big story this isn't South Carolina. Tell us all about it. Well, this is a democratic candidate for the United States Senate, running in the primary, the primary was last night, June 28th, which is also my 38th birthday, so quite a bit. It's also Elon Musk's birthday, by the way, June 28th is quite a day. And this is the crystal Matthews using racially charged language while encouraging illicit campaign tactics. She was caught on a, in a she was talking to someone inside of a jail. And it was a recorded line and a whistleblower provided this to us. Some of these quotes are pretty incendiary. This is the candidate. And by the way, she won last night. So now she's going to face Tim Scott. The South Carolina U.S. senator in the general election. She said, quote, where's my dope money, my duffel bag boys? Give me that dope money. Honestly, and I'm an N word at heart. I love black people. We need folks that can wear black at night and take down their effing yard signs. I mean, just this is just some of the most shocking things you'll over here. Now, just this week, yesterday, the house legislator in South Carolina has put together an ethics committee to investigate this woman who has just won last night the primary in South Carolina.

"Reported that. You guys could check that out. I understand you have to be careful with that. In closing here, James, I want to just go through some of your greatest hits the last couple of days. Can you talk about the Elon Musk's meeting with Twitter that you guys publicized? We haven't really talked about Elon. Well, you just mentioned his birthday. Decide that we haven't really focused a lot on it, what did we learn in that call? Well, Elon Musk and I share a birthday just funny, funny irony, coincidence there. Yeah, we've been reporting some raw phone calls that Elon Musk has had with Twitter. There was that one that he dialed into the call and expressed his commitment to freedom of speech. We also reported recently that Twitter's own all hands call right when the deal was announced with Elon Musk buying it. People were up in arms upset about it. And then Charlie, that comes on the heels of our two Twitter executives caught on hidden camera. One of the mocking Elon Musk's Asperger's condition saying he's special needs and then that guy Alex Martinez sprinting away from me in New York City, running away from me as I confronted him with his own words. And then the other Twitter engineer calling themselves communist as FUCK and saying that they don't really show up to work there at Twitter. So a lot going on. And by the way, we have sources inside Twitter that keep feeding us these phone calls. You have to remember, all these people, including this north, South Carolina, Senate race, again to remind you crystal Matthews, state rep has just won the primary in South Carolina running against U.S. senator Tim Scott Tim Scott will likely win. But this is probably the most damning thing you ever hear in the history of project veritas, released two days ago, talking about dope money, campaign violations using the N word. This is crazy, and she won. Despite us releasing this. So this is, this is a new Rubicon that we're crossing here in American society when people can win after saying things like that. James keep up the great work. They're trying to take you out and they fail every single time. We have your back, project veritas dot com slash brave, make a financial support of James O'Keefe's organization. It's worth it. I don't say that about a lot of groups. Project veritas's great hope to see you in Tampa James. Keep up the great work. See you soon. Thank you. So Madrid is kind of the center of the world right now. I've been to Madrid. It's a nice city, nice place, Spain is fine. I have some good friends in Spain. But Madrid is kind of a meeting point for a lot of global leaders right now. And there's a code Dell happening, a congressional delegation in Spain. So while you are not able to afford to go on vacation, don't worry, your Republican officials are touring Spanish wine country, but not just touring it with anybody. Senate majority whip dick Durbin said that the time he's spending traveling throughout Europe with Tom tillis is giving him confidence that they can restart immigration talk reforms again.

The Real Reason Companies are Taking a Stand on Abortion Rights

"Sign as Tucker Carlson beautifully put it last evening in his monologue, a woman is less likely to quickly respond to an email about some sort of internal issue happening in the company if she has to put her kids down to sleep, or she has to feed them dinner, or pick them up at soccer practice. Moms do not make as good of corporate loyalists as Goldman Sachs, Nike or Netflix would like them to be. Now, I still think they make phenomenal workers, but they need to be moms first. That's what actually matters for your society and your civilization. Now, one of the kind of circumstances we're seeing is a generation of millennial women that are in their late 20s and early 30s that have pursued their career first. I'll get married later. I'll find a boyfriend or a husband later in life. And that very well might work out for you. Who am I to say differently? But I am one to look at generational trends and trajectory that largely as more of a generalization than a rule that has created a deeply unhappy demographic of hyper successful corporate women. Of women that are in corporate life, I should say, but they're deeply unhappy. Why? It's because they've been told to just get the next paycheck, stick with cats and dogs, get an above Azure part above average apartment, live in a very expensive urban center in metropolis, focus on your career at all costs and do not whatever it takes. Get married or have children. Now, some women get fine fulfillment in that for the rest of their life, fine. Most do not. And so make no mistake that corporate America that is pushing forward these I'm going to pay you to go get an abortion. I'm going to pay you if I'm Amazon to go out of state or even Tesla deeply disappointed to hear that from Elon Musk's company. I'm going to pay you to go out of the state to go basically remain loyal to our company. It's not about abortion, it's about profit

So your WT have all this, when we get on those calls, you see people of all ages all backgrounds, and it's mostly women, but there are a few men, but it's just really like, it's really open. And then on the inclusive side, for the customer, what we love about them, what I love about the phrasing is that they're self identifying. So they're saying I want to be an inclusive company. So I'm looking here for, you know, for what you're bringing to me. So to me, that's really powerful. I agree. I absolutely love that. Okay, for our company, we will be checking it out for sure. That's awesome. Tell me about, so if you talk about backstage capital, tell me two or three of your some of your favorite companies you've invested in. I want people to kind of understand what it's like. Yeah, so we run the gamut. We're called industry agnostic. And so that means that we can look at almost any different type of company. So I'll talk about curl mix. I'll talk about curl mix, a cosh, and mommy. Really quickly. Curl mix, they actually mixed, they used to mix ingredients in their kitchen, it's a black couple in Chicago. They've had two kids since they started. I met them before they were making 10,000 a month in revenue. Something about them struck me. We were the first investor. They now are going to do $10 million in revenue this year. They turned down Shark Tank because it was a bad deal. They're worth way more than they ever were. They do more than their Shark Tank bump on a regular basis. So cool. These days. And they're just amazing people. There's a whole story there. I'd love to introduce you because they're really, really cool people. Akash is this guy, so he's a black man. He's I'm going to call him this and this is with all the love in the world. We should kind of nerdy. Like that's how I look at it and I hope that's not offensive. But he's just a genius, right? And he developed this technology using fake diamond technology. It's crazy, and what it does, it's going to take you from hair care to space. Because what does is it keeps objects in space cooler longer so they can stay up there longer. And they can get closer to the sun and closer to the different parts of the atmosphere. And so what he's doing is he's building satellites for broadband. So he's going up against Elon Musk and SpaceX, essentially there are different parts of SpaceX, where it's not rockets, but it's satellites and the Internet we're using right now and the Internet we use on planes, et cetera, he wants to take that broadband to more places around the world who can't get them can't reach reached. Now small villages and things like that. And also make it super strong for the ones who can so that we can be competitive. Yes. And so to me, he's just, he's just the coolest guy. And you'll see a lot more about him soon. And then mommy, mommy is Melissa Hannah. She's a woman of color in Los Angeles, and the cool thing..

"Even the world's richest man is getting hit with this bullshit too. He's getting the splatter too. Elon Musk's no good and spoiled son, Xavier. Just filed legal documents to not only recognize his gender identity as female, but also to say I'm cutting the ties with my father completely. But just the completely, I'm going off on, I don't want to be a Musk anymore. So Xavier will now be Vivian Jenna Wilson. That's what the documents say he wants. And she also added that she no longer wants to be related to my biological father in any way, shape or form. And all this is because Elon Musk openly tweeted a while back that he supports trans rights, but he hates the pronoun bullshit. He tweeted pronouns suck. And he's right. And that cost him his son.

Elon Musk Just Had an Epic Meeting With Twitter Employees

"Right, let's turn to some fun stuff. Twitter, Twitter, Elon Musk, just drive and everybody over Twitter absolutely crazy. He had a meeting with employees today that he did over cell phone and he spoke to them as he promised he would and let's just say they're not too psyched. They're not rolling out the red carpet for Elon anytime soon. And he said some stuff that caused them to get very, very worried. In fact, one of the things he said is he would err on the side of allowing outrageous tweets. He's okay with outrageous tweets. This is a company that has worked very, very hard to sort of control what's out there if you would. And there are certain biases, shall we just say that I think have been reflected in how they manage that quote unquote control. So now you get this guy coming out of outer space, shall we say he did say it had never seen an alien, by the way. But anyway, he's coming in from we're going to say outer space, Texas, right? I think for a lot of Twitter employees, Texas might as well be outer space. And he suggesting things that would effectively turn the company on its head from everything that they've known, but I do believe one would be better for society and two will ultimately be better for the company as well. Because he wants to grow to a billion users. They've got roughly 229 million. I believe for their last filing, that's if they're all legit users, right? Because don't forget, that's another wrinkle in all of this. As Elon Musk threatens to get out of the deal as Elon Musk threatens to renegotiate the deal, I'll get to that in a second, but first back to this meeting, one of the issues that came up was whether or not employees would be able to work from home. Don't forget what he said to Tesla employees, like no way no how? And if you have a problem with that, come see me directly. Well, he told the Twitter employees that it would be considered for really exceptional employees. So apparently they were all conversing with each other on slack as this whole thing was going on and they were like, oh, you know, what is an exceptional employee and apparently sending memes and there was a lot of sort of hazing and teasing about the presentation. But look, he's talking about rocking their world. And that's never fun. Right? It's not fun for them, it's not fun for the establishment, but I think ultimately it could be incredibly healthy for our

Google's Shadow Operation to Kill Gendered Language With Allum Bokhari

"Let's just kind of talk more broadly about Google right now. And this is a phenomenal story you guys could check it out at the great breitbart dot com. We love breitbart dot com. By the way, a story right next to your story. I just have to say this. We'll talk about it. Miss Universe insists, not all people who menstruate are women. That's where we're at. This is a breitbart dot com story. Go ahead all them. Well, yeah, that's exactly the kind of thinking that's driving this Google's happenings at Google. There are no men and women. If you even use the word men or women or mother or boy, then you're somehow being non inclusive. That's the way they want. It's what we like. It's one of the great and Elon Musk pointed this out. I've said this for a while, but the fact Elon is saying it is hilarious, which is in the same sentence, they'll say, there's no such thing as a woman, but trans women are women. Oh really, so which is it? Or trans women, women? What is that word woman? And I just, I just I've plugged at so many times. Matt Walsh's just precise focus on this question of what is a woman is one of the most brilliant approaches to the trans calamity that I've seen in quite some time. But let's talk about kind of Google as a whole. Do you think that they have been kind of quiet in the last couple of months, at least this is not my beat. I know you're a reporter on this stuff. What have they been up to? What do we have to keep our eyes on when it comes to Google? There's still manipulating search results. Are they woke or than ever? Are you seeing any sort of kind of back to reality movement at Google? What's going on there? I actually don't see any back to reality inside Google. And I've always considered Google to be the worst of the Silicon Valley tech giants. Twitter arguably has a more work culture, but they have less because Twitter is a smaller company with a smaller user base to have less impact on the information we receive, whereas with Google, everyone uses Google. And Facebook, you know, they someday sometimes they sometimes try and throw a bone to the right. They don't always do what the left says. They're still extremely left wing. But Google suppressed right about news completely during the 2020 election. They took our visibility on certain central almost zero. You could even type in bright news headlines and they wouldn't show up in Google even when you're typing in the exact headline. So they clearly intervened in the 2020 election. And we even got a tape of their executives discussing doing that after the 2016 election. So they are the openly and brazenly imperial and elections. We've seen the manipulating search results related to referendums around the world. And nothing is stopping them from doing that again. So I think Google is definitely one we should continue watching. We should look for discrepancies in search results. Discrepancies and traffic from Google to the mainstream media as opposed to Google to conservative media.

People were coming off the street fighting in the school and all he did was pepper spray. Now, do I believe that it was invaluable to have him there? Yes. Why? 'cause you know a cop is there. There's a cop there. So if the cop is there, then you're less likely to commit crimes. Why? Because if he see you, you go to jail. The problem with our society today, ladies and gentlemen, I've been saying this ever since I woke up from the Democrat plantation. It's that we don't want to hold black kids accountable. That's what it comes down to. If you are saying black kids are afraid of SROs. We went to an all black school in the SRO in our school was black. So black kids are afraid of SROs.

They were accused and said that they were whipping people. Now we're going to talk about that later. Shout out to my mother in law for giving me that story. However, the Democrats, 27 Democrats voted against protecting the Supreme Court justices. Why do you say that, mister Tatum? After Brett Kavanaugh, a person literally showed up to his house to kill him. Okay, can you imagine this? A person showed up to a Supreme Court Justice house to kill him because they disagreed with the position that he may take on roe V wade. The stances that he may have taken if the gun law legislation was brought to the Supreme Court. Show her to kill him. And immediately, Republicans asked for there to be protection for Brett Kavanaugh. Now in the credit of Democrats and Republicans in a bipartisan bipartisan measure in the Senate, all 100 senators voted, yes, to have the Supreme Court Justice get more security 24 hours a day. They're immediate family is I'll read the details of it. But to get them more security, the beef of the security is so they will be protected.

"Meanwhile, Democrats are trying to screw up big tech. Now we need some reforms in big tech, some protection of data. We need national security, cooperation from big tech.

Because once again, if you let Democrats run anything, they will run it into the ground. Cut number 26. Well, look, the one thing standing in the way of Chinese domination of the world in Chinese Communist Party domination in the world is the American private sector and the bigger one of the big parts of that is tech. And so all you have to do is look at what Elon Musk did with Starlink at the outset of the Ukraine war keeping Ukraine connected, what YouTube did and getting zelensky's speeches out to the Russians. And we see why the Chinese don't like it. And they've said that they're going to surpass American tech, they're going to scale their companies. They're going to put trillions of dollars into it. They've been public about it. So they've got this China 25 policy to destroy America's tech sector. And now we've got these bills out to help them do it. It's pretty amazing. I want to give them access to our algorithms, access to our data. We should be banning Chinese companies and taking action like India did against Chinese big tech and instead we're coming after the American companies.

But I also knew that the left has been so successful in squelching virtually any public discussion of this. I wasn't even sure I'd be able to tweet about it on Twitter. I got to say that the Elon Musk proposal on Twitter that has opened up Twitter and made Twitter into something at least close to a free speech platform has been critically important for this movie. Because this movie has not traveled on YouTube or on Facebook at all. Obviously it has helped also by getter becoming a strong platform by rumble and then also by the emergence of truth social. So it really shows we're building an alternative infrastructure to get our information out. And the left has been trying their best to launch fact check upon fact check up on fact check.

Can Elon Musk Really Back Out of His Twitter Deal?

"Turn to Elon Musk because this guy is killing me. Hi, I am a big Elon Musk fan. I think he's a brilliant guy. I think having him involved in this space is actually really important and a lot of good could come of it, but I don't know if he's going to get there. Actually, I do think he's going to get there. I do think he wants the company. I think he just doesn't want $54 and 20 cents a share. And it's a little bit tricky because there's that whole look. I'm buying it. I'm just buying it and that it doesn't matter what anything is. I've described this to you all before it's like, you know, you go and you see this great house that you want to buy off the street and you don't know what the bones are like, you don't know how the electricity is or how the basement is and then you buy it or you sign a paper to buy it. You say, you know what? I'm going to waive all my rights to all that stuff. There's no inspection. I'm going to buy for cash and then it turns out like basements flooded and you figure out the basements flying around like wait a second. This house is not worth what I offered to pay. So there's a little bit of that going on. It's got a little bit of buyer's remorse, so I'm going to especially look where Tex Ben since he made the initial bid and so now it's going to be kind of a contest to wills and part of me thinks that you don't want to fight Elon Musk on that one. I think that he might actually, you know, this is very unusual. This is, I will just say this because it is not often in merger deals that you would get a haircut on the price. I mean, it just doesn't happen. There's only like one time it's ever happened, and that was Tiffany. But hey, you know what? He might get it done. Only because this thing is so darn messy. I mean, think about it. If you're on the board of Twitter right now, you're like, oh, first of all, you couldn't say no to the deal because it was an amazing offer. I'm like, what are they thinking? But now that they've said yes, and now that there's all this commotion, what happens? I mean, if they say, okay, we'll take a haircut on the deal. Guess what? Twitter, shareholders will sue the board. Of course they're going to sue. There's going to be tons of litigation because they'll say, why did you do that?

Will Elon Musk Really Back out of Twitter Now?

"All right, turning to Elon because he's quite a character. I love him. I think the guy is brilliant. I would be nervous as a Twitter shareholder right now. I think the deal eventually gets done. I'm not so sure it's going to go at 54 20, though. I've said before, you know, it kind of has to because he signed all these agreements, waving his right to due diligence and historically, deals. They always happen. And the only one I can think of is Tiffany, where they were able to negotiate a little bit of a discount after having signed all the paperwork, but in this particular situation, you have a, you have an entrepreneur gifted entrepreneur that is now saying, wait a second. This is not what I signed up for. Now, I've in the past said, you know, I don't know how much of a leg he really has to stand on only because it's like, you know, if you go and buy a house, see your neighbor's house, and it looks fantastic and you say, I don't need to look at the guts of the house. I don't need to go inside. I don't need to see the basement, and then it turns out, oh, basement's all flooded. Well, if you don't actually agree to have any kind of inspection, if you say I'm just buying it, cash deal, sign on scene, then how much recourse do you really have? Well, that's the question here in this particular case. Typically the courts would be like, yeah, you know, good luck. This is what you signed up for, but in Elon's case, he's really making a lot of noise. His concern is that there are more than 5% bots on Twitter. I think they're probably are. I know the company tries to cut down on those bonds, but I have a feeling that Elon might be onto something that there are a lot of fake accounts. And so his point is, look, I had to go off of your SEC filings. If you lied in the SEC filings and I really shouldn't have to be on the hook for

Elon Musk Threatens to Walk Away From Twitter Deal

"Kara, first of all, I got some breaking news that came to me in my ear before we joined and I want to talk about this. Elon Musk and Twitter. Now we all know that Elon Musk was scheduled to acquire Twitter, but now with the bot situation, the pretty much what happened is that there have been deceitful. They claim that it was worth more than what it really is because bots do not count for success and it does not count for involvement and engagement. So he may walk away from this. Can you talk a little bit about this and give us your thoughts on Elon Musk potentially walking away from the Twitter deal? Yeah, there are a couple of schools of thoughts here. Well, one of them thinks that, okay, maybe Elon is just trying to get himself more favorable terms for this deal. Oh, he is a businessman after all. The richest man in the world doesn't become rich by spending all his money. So there is an idea that, okay, he might be trying to negotiate for a better deal. And he actually might still be committed fully to the acquisition. He said as much a few weeks ago when all of this consternation about Twitter's what they're actually saying about their bot levels are started roiling around. This seems to be the most serious step that he's taken in order to potentially extricate himself from the acquisition. You know, lawyers sending letters around, it could be sort of gamesmanship, but it also could be very serious. And what I think is really interesting in this regard is more breaking news. The attorney general from Texas Ken Paxton, he basically said that if this is true, then we are going to take it to Twitter and he filed what's basically looking at Texas deceptive trade practices act to protect the Texan consumer. So he's taking what Elon is saying very seriously in his statement. He targeting Twitter. He basically said, they said it was about 5% in their public documents, but it might be as much as 20%. So it looks like Elon is creating a little bit of a snowball effect when it comes to Twitter's woes. So, you know, I've heard the Elon Musk take over touted as the free market solution, you know, this is why tech companies don't have to be reined in because we've got billionaires, you know, waiting to buy these platforms. Not true. Whatsoever. Look how difficult this has been. So in my estimation, it's a little naive to think that we're going to have white knights riding out of the woodwork to save us conservatives from censorship and the abuses these big tech companies are visiting upon the American people. And I don't think it's a replicable strategy. I hope Elon prevails, but it's looking really sticky at this point.

"After Elon Musk says quote he has a super bad feeling about the economy and wants to slash Tesla jobs. Tesla CEO Elon Musk has a super bad feeling about the economy and wants to cut roughly 10% of jobs at the electric carmaker. He said in an email to executives on Thursday, the message came two days after the world's richest man told employees to return to the workplace or leave the company. Tesla employs around a 100,000 people in the company and its subsidiaries at the end of 2021, according to an annual SEC filing. Add that to Jamie Dimon.

Elon Musk Has 'Super Bad Feeling' About Economy

"I want to get to Elon Musk right now because Elon Musk sort of single handedly helped drive the market down. That's going to make people nervous, right? That's going to make a unit. They don't want him having Twitter now for sure. Anyway, it came out that he issued an email telling all his managers around the world to lay off 10% of the workforce and that he's really anticipating a significant challenge ahead for the economy. So he's got kind of this bad feeling about it. Biden was asked about it on Friday and kind of scoffed it off and said, you know, he wishes him well on his trip to the moon. So do I, by the way, and by the way, you shouldn't actually laugh at that because the guy is actually looking to colonize Mars, which is a heck of a lot more than the U.S. government is doing as far as space goes. I would just say, but Elon Musk making these comments and of course setting everybody off and more concerns now about the economy. Look, we have every reason to be worried right now. I think markets have every reason to be worried. It's the reason why I've been reluctant. I told you you can kind of nibble on the edges here, but you got to be really cautious because there could be more downside to come. Once the reality sinks in, that yes, indeed, we probably are going into a recession. The question is how bad a recession is it? I mean, I really hope it's not that bad, and I'm praying that the Federal Reserve is maybe smarter than we think, but I don't have a whole lot of faith,

Learn more about a past one at a vast dot com. To understand the evolution of Elon Musk is a businessman, you have to go back. Back before the tweets on the rockets and the controversial cars to the late 1990s. In his 20s, Musk started a company called zip two with his brother Kimball. The idea was to provide online directories and city guides to newspapers. And Ashley says this Elon Musk was hardly the flashy global celebrity, we see today. He had grown up something of a loner and this almost sci-fi nerd. He was a little awkward. He was a little shy. And that was reflected a lot, I think, in the way he ran zip two. He was the CEO, but had no experience being a CEO, he was pretty rude. To people that worked there, I mean, he would have meetings where he would just dress people down brutally. He's still known as being this tough boss to work for, but it was almost like a little bit different. It was almost coming from this place of insecurity, I think, and trying to let everybody know that he thought he was the smartest guy in the room and being pretty abrasive about it. I mean, this was a guy who was trying to make his way in the world and again was something of a kind of insecure loaner. Musk sold zip two just as he was starting his second company X dot com, an online bank. It would eventually merge with another company and become PayPal. None of this sounds particularly exciting now, but at the time, Ashley says, it was revolutionary. This is at a time when people were afraid to put their credit card numbers onto the Internet because you had no idea what was going to happen, but this guy is sitting there saying, no, we need not just payments online, but you should be able to manage all of your finances and send money much more efficiently and so he also wanted to aim the company very much toward consumers and really in really take risks. Then we get to sort of the Tesla and SpaceX era. And so much of the meat of your reporting has centered on those companies and kind of the place they occupy in current capitalism. What do you think makes them special? They come with a cause, SpaceX has this goal of setting up a colony on Mars, Tesla was always set up as this antidote to climate change and making the electric car work, so they come with this philosophy, this mantra that employees get behind, the customers get behind, obviously, both companies also had this advantage of being kind of a clean slate. You had rich people that had tried to make rockets before, and they'd all failed. It was thought largely impossible that a private space company could succeed. And not only have they succeed, SpaceX accounts for the vast majority of government launches today and then commercial launches of satellites, and now people to space. On a level that it's essentially like SpaceX versus China, and that's it. Same thing with the carmakers. By the time Tesla shows up, the carmakers were kind of soulless. They were just really assemblers of hearts from thousands of suppliers. And I felt like had lost their way and Elon went against the grain there with both of them being very vertically integrated and making so many of their parts inside the company at a time when it was thought that's really that's not how you do it because it's such a money losing proposition. And it ended up being that having all the control over that technology is really what separated them. What do you think is worth paying attention to within those companies that I guess maybe gives you some insight into Elon Musk? Everybody knows he's a really hard bus who's incredibly demanding. And can occasionally go well beyond demanding to sort of just be way too hard on people. But he does have this devotion from his employees. His greatest gift is getting thousands of people to work hard and intelligently. Toward these massive goals that he has, I think, just he gets knocked all the time, right? For setting these unrealistic timelines. So this is a part where I sort of feel like his personality carries over to the companies and then over to the employees as well. I wanted to interrogate the mythology around Elon Musk. Is he some singular genius with ideas that no one else has thought of? After all, Tesla actually had two founders before Musk. Is it more that Musk spots holes in the market at the right time? Or takes other people's ideas and builds on them? So no one no one builds a rocket by themselves or anything close to it. SpaceX was the fruit of a lot of people's labors. What I think Elon did was there were a lot of people who were in the traditional aerospace industry who felt beaten down and discouraged by all these decades of nothing changing and things just getting more expensive, slower, more cautious. And Elon presented this opportunity for all these people that have fairly similar dreams to him. I think sometimes he especially initially overplayed his genius in rocket design and people within the company would get frustrated when Elon would take credit for things when he's a guy that's read some textbooks. It hasn't built a rocket before. Do you think the same thing in principle applies for Tesla? More or less, I would say there were electric car buffs and there was that same religious fervor that went with the technology, but fewer of them. I think the freeing aspect of Tesla was treating the car like a computer. And it became a technology object rather than just a car. And this, this so played to Silicon Valley strengths and let Elon tap into, again, these hundreds or thousands of incredibly smart.

"Corleone is old. He's puttering around his kitchen in a cardigan complaining that the mobster life just won't let him go. Just what I thought I was out. They pulled me back in. Admittedly, not a great movie. But anyway, that is how I think about Elon Musk and reporter Ashley Vance, who wrote a pretty exhaustive book about him in 2015. Yeah, the book was from start to finish. I was probably about three years and that was living and breathing a lot of everything Elon Musk and his universe for lack of a better term. Ashley got sick of talking about Musk. He was burned out. Elon and I also had a really tense go of it after my book came out, which made wanting to write about him not that attractive of a proposition. I just thought I was writing a book about an interesting person and some interesting companies. I didn't expect it to be this almost inseparable part of my life forever after that. But the problem is, once you have written the big Elon Musk biography, people like me want to call you up and ask you questions. What was your first impression of him? There were no handlers in what I would ask him a question. He just answered it. So openly and thoughtfully and kind of differently than the on message billionaires and CEOs that I was used to interviewing, you know, he does have a slightly. I don't know if awkward is the right word. He's not always like the easiest conversationalist, especially at the beginning of a chat. So there was a little bit of that going on. But I was immediately struck like, oh, this guy's, you know, you might not agree with what he's going to say, but he's actually saying what's on his mind. For weeks now, Musk has been saying what's on his mind. On Twitter. And dominating so many conversations about the future of the Internet. On Friday morning, just as we were putting this show to bed, there was news that he might cut Tesla's workforce by 10%. So today on the show, I wanted to ask Ashley some bigger questions about the richest man on the planet. A guy so rich, he wanted to buy his own social network, and then maybe decided he didn't want it after all. How good is Elon Musk at business, really? Are his companies that innovative? Does he just keep showing up in the right place at the right time? I'm Lizzie O'Leary, and you're listening to what next TBD, a show about technology, power, and how the future.

Now the latest tabulations of where his net worth is, they kind of re tabulated every single day. It's about $221 billion today. He certainly has the net worth still to be able to purchase Twitter.

"Amount of emphasis on the culture wars, Lauren from The New York Times. Do you think this makes sense in business terms and consumer terms because the glory days of U.S. cable news was very much based on covering politics. Yeah, I mean, I think that unfortunately probably unfortunately it's the right word culture worse has kind of taken over the media and the way that politics are being covered now and we've seen that in the U.S. landscape. So I think it's actually fairly consistent with the trajectory that we've seen. Amphibian, just before we go on to talk about Twitter, presumably all of the strands of our discussion point towards the fact that news and how we all consume it is in for a tumultuous few years. Oh, yes. I mean, it's impossible to even address that respond to what you just said without talking about Twitter. Because I think in many ways, Twitter is sort of the hub for the many spokes of how news is what news takes what hold who pays attention to what and what storylines dominate. Well, let's talk about Twitter, of course, this jaw dropping announcement came on Monday. It's a major news sources, Vivian explains, and Elon Musk has had an offer of $44 billion accepted for the whole thing. Lauren hirsch, from The New York Times, you've been reporting on this in detail and, well, it would have been jaw dropping, however long it took, but for it to happen so quickly really took us all by surprise. How did that happen? It was incredibly. I've told this story a couple of times. I was at a show on Sunday texting with the source just to kind of touch base. And my source goes ideal could happen maybe Monday, maybe not. I was like, what are you talking about? And even it would think if you would have it, let alone by tomorrow. It happened at an exceptionally fast speed. I think the board, you know, one just take a step back. Elon Musk had put it forward out there. Put the offer out there without any financing. And so there was a lot of criticism that it was real, that it was legitimate. And he lined up financing last week. He lined it up on Wednesday displayed it on Thursday. And then all of a sudden, it became very real. And the board was face of a decision of looking at its prospect of standing alone and what its long-term business trajectory was. And there was a sense that frankly, it was limited. There's a lot of challenge right now with social media companies, the advertising business is under pressure. And they came to the conclusion that perhaps Elon Musk was not their desirable buyer, but he was the only buyer and the price that he was offering, posted better solution from a number of perspectives than going alone. And once they arrived at that conclusion and understanding, they raced to get a deal done anymore. We're up into the night on Monday and signed the documents right, you know, shortly before it was announced Monday afternoon. And the deal has been done and that the board is accepted the offer, but none of this magic's away the tensions between whether Twitter is a platform and whether it's a publisher and just help us understand how that particular tension plays directly into this emphasis from Elon Musk on freedom of speech and how he feels like Twitter should be doing better on that front. So he's even kind of gone back and forth in the past couple of days. And when he was trying to launch the bid he spoke a lot about how passionately he felt about freedom of speech, European regulators came out yesterday and reminded mosque that if he closes the field of.

"This is the media show from BBC Radio four. This week, we're going to talk about three grand plans. First of all, there's Elon Musk. Twitter has become kind of the de facto town square. So it's just really important that people have the both the reality and the perception that they are able to speak freely within the bounds of the law. Since he said that, Elon Musk has had his offer to buy Twitter accepted. It's a story with any number of consequences for media, for tech, for all of us who use Twitter. But if you don't use it and you're thinking, what's this got to do with me? We'll get into that too. The next plan is one that's come to a shuddering halt. This was only a few weeks ago. CNN is an icon of the cable and satellite age. But now cable is competing with streaming. And there isn't a streaming subscription service for TV news in the United States. So if you were creating a news product from scratch in 2022, how would you build it? That's one of the questions. One of the starting points for CNN plus. It's the biggest bet any company has made in the news streaming world. That CNN's Brian stelter, millions had been spent on a new streaming service, CNN plus, but the plug was pulled within weeks of the launch, and while that was stopping, Rupert Murdoch's talk TV was starting, with a familiar face at the center of it.

If Google is not allowing coverage of the Hunter Biden laptop or Twitter didn't allow coverage of the Hunter Biden laptop or Google manipulating search results where according to doctor Epstein said that Google flipped millions of votes through their search engine optimization manipulation or Facebook not allowing critical stories of Biden to be shared, but now MSNBC goes and puts the I hate rich people had on even though they're a Microsoft started company by the formerly world's richest man, Bill Gates, hard to keep all this straight because now they hate rich people because the rich person they created Elon Musk because they all want to drive electric cars isn't obeying and is not healing to their demands. You see, once there is an objector, a renegade or a dissident or an insurgent, the left will do everything they possibly can to stifle that person. The problem is that Elon is probably too big to stifle. Play cut 28. Do you own all of Twitter or Facebook or what have you? You don't have to explain yourself. You don't even have to be transparent. You could secretly ban one party's candidate or all of its candidates, all of its nominees, or you could just secretly turn down the reach of their stuff and turn up the reach of something else and the rest of us might not even find out about it till after the election. Elon Musk says this is all to help people because he is just a free speech philosophically clear, open minded helper. Who is this guy? Ari melber? That's exactly what they've been doing to conservatives the last 6 years. Shadow banning, changing the ability for people to be able to see trends manipulating trends, a friend of mine here in Phoenix. Very smart guy. He said, Charlie, you know what I want to see? I want to see what James O'Keefe recovered or uncovered, where they showed that special bar do you remember that special dashboard that they say did not exist where it allows you to ban certain people that allows you to suppress certain accounts that I want to actually go see that? That I want to go after the dashboard that is suppressing potential disagreeable accounts. Part of Elon Musk's project is going to be actually uncovering all of the censorship that Twitter has been openly and privately involved in. The last couple of years. I wonder how different our country would look politically if we actually had a free and open Twitter. This is why they're so nervous. If people are actually able to have transparent information and news, the country might not actually have a Democrat controlled Senate. Pelosi might not be Speaker of the House. The government of the Silicon Valley elites is crumbling. Almost every day we hear about another major corporation that has gone woke, Disney hates you and everyone should cancel Disney. They hate families, Disney made tons of money off of being family friendly and family safe. Now it's time to divest from Disney. So a lot of companies like T mobile that's firing all their unvaccinated employees, their tormenting their employees with leftist propaganda and funding organizations who seem to hate this country. And so I was on a mission. I was seeing how much I was spending on my cell phone bill, how much turning point USA was spending on our cell phone bill. I said, I'm so sick and tired of giving these anti American cell phone companies. My hard earned money and our amazing donor money at turning point USA. So I told my team, I said, go find the cell phone company that shares our values. And I remember I met this guy Glenn, we'd run into each other a couple of times when he was super enthusiastic always wore this right red polo, some patriot mobile on it. And I saw him again in an event. I said, okay, now you really got to sit down, let's plan some time together and talk about this. So we had this meal in Dallas, this was back in November, and he laid it all out. And I got it. I was like, wow, okay. So you're at a conservative Christian cell phone provider, and I don't have to pay all these woke companies. And it just like clicked in a minute. I said, let's partner together. Let's have you on the show. Let's do some things. And that's how it.

So he was like, okay, he's not going to join the board and because the board is full of people who don't or are not. Who doesn't support his agenda. So he was like, okay, he ain't going to join the board. He just wants to he decided one day to just wake up and say he wants to own 100% of Twitter.

"It's like, okay, you're in the arena. Let's go. Twitter's a war zone? That's somewhere in the First Amendment. I'm pretty sure. I think I'm just going to stick to Instagram. Anyway, regardless of how I active Musk might get. For neither companies shareholders seem to be delighted to have him on board. Anna says the company's growth hasn't really lived up to Wall Street's expectations recently. Now, the market thinks that Elon Musk is going to make some positive changes. Of course, positive is in the eye of the beholder. The danger from Musk and for Twitter is that Twitter's users might not want it to be liberated. I mean, if Musk decides that he wants to push the company to be a platform of unfettered free speech, that might not go down so well. Many users and shareholders might not want the bands that Twitter imposed on certain people to be lifted. They might not be comfortable being involved with a company willing to host misinformation and violent rhetoric. Instead, they might run for the hills. Deserting the platform, selling their stock and leaving Elon Musk and the board of directors very badly, needing a drink.

"Hey there listeners, it's Bret Molina, welcome back to talking tech. You know Elon Musk I'm sure. He's the CEO Tesla, the CEO of SpaceX. He's also the richest person in the world. Add one more title to his resume. Time Magazine's person of the year. The magazine announced on Monday, that Elon Musk is their person of the year. This is the top honor for the magazine. This is what time editor in chief and CEO Edward felsenthal said about Musk, being named time person of the year. Quote, person of the year is a marker of influence and few individuals have had more influence than Musk on life on earth and potentially life off earth too. As of Sunday, Musk is hands down the world's richest person. According to the Bloomberg billionaires index, he has a total net worth of $266 billion. A lot of that value surged this past year, a 110 billion. In fact, in a lot of that is due to what he's been doing with Tesla obviously. There's also everything he's doing with SpaceX. He's also got Starlink, which is this investment in satellite Internet and he is projected according to Morgan Stanley to become the world's first trillionaire, which his mind boggling when you think about it. For some perspective on Musk is the world's richest person. Second in line is Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, whose net worth is valued at $198 billion. That is a lot of money. Of course, Musk has been super vocal on Twitter throughout this whole time. He actually took a jab at Bezos for falling to second place among the world's richest people. He's also had a lot of other thoughts and opinions about a lot of things. His most recent tweets, he talked about how he worried about the falling birth rate, and how that could threaten human civilization. Obviously, he's got a lot of thoughts. It's going to be really fascinating to see what he does with Tesla. SpaceX in particular because we've obviously seen this race to space and we've seen it with Bezos and Blue Origin. That is going to be really interesting to watch, especially if it opens up the opportunity for more people, just regular people to be able to fly to space. How does consumer travel work? Lots of.

"And pains are no fun, and you know, they come to us all eventually, whether from just a normal wear and tear of time or from injury. But now there's a 100% drug free solution. It's called relief factor. Really factor supports your body's fight against inflammation and inflammation is the source of aches and pains. Now the vast majority of people who try relief factor order more, why? Because it works for them. One proof, well, Debbie right here has been suffering with frozen shoulder for a couple of years and well, I'm just going to let her tell you what happened. So a while ago, I tried relief factor. It was amazing. I could lift my arm and no longer hurt. I got busy, I ran out of the supply. They sent me and unfortunately the pain came right back. So I've been on it for actually a few months now and the pain is gone. I can lift my arm again and so anyway, so to get out of pain, you've got to order the three week quick start for the discounted price of only 1995. Go to relief factor dot com or call 833-690-7246 that number again 833-690-7246 I'll go to relief factor dot com. Debbie and I have been chatting and chuckling a little bit at the remarks of the richest man in the world, no we're not talking about Jeff Bezos, if you've been keeping track, the richest man in the world is Elon Musk, SpaceX, Tesla, this guy is just an unbelievable genius. And what an entrepreneur now of late. He did session with The Wall Street Journal, and I gotta say, well, first of all, really Elon that haircut, what are you going for these the Kim Jong-un look? It's a little bit unnerving, but I like all the things he said and honey, let's talk a little bit about some of the things. First of all, he comes out against the infrastructure Bill. And I love this. I mean, he goes, honestly, I would just can this whole Bill. Don't pass it. I would just delete it. Delete. Delete. So you see here his libertarian streak. He goes on to say, and this is the broader point. It does not make sense to take the job of capital allocation away from people who have demonstrated great skill. In other words, from the entrepreneurial class and give it to an entity, the government that has demonstrated very poor skill. And then he sums up the nature of government. I think beautifully, where he goes the government is simply like a big corporation. In fact, it's the biggest corporation in the country, but it has a, a monopoly on violence and B, you have no recourse. So normally with a company you don't like it, go shop somewhere else. But with the government you don't have well, I mean look at when we go to the DMV or we go to the post office or it's like, oh my goodness. Do we have all day to waste? But this is how they are. This is how they operate very inefficient, unlike probably his facility is amazing. You know, I can only imagine. And going to a place like the Apple store, you know, you go right in right out. Boy, wouldn't that be something if government could work like that. Number Dana Carvey. Oh my gosh, yes. Socialism is the DMV. Capitalism is the Apple store. What do you want? Which one do you want? No, with Elon Musk. You know, here's a guy. Now he makes some general points here about society. He says, you know, civilization is going to crumble if people don't have more children. In fact, he says, a lot of elites think there are too many people in the world, but he says, in fact, I can't emphasize this enough, there are not enough people, and then he goes on to find out this is one reason why he has 6 kids. Oh, I was gonna ask, how many kids does he have? Yeah, he's setting a good example, so he's practicing what he preaches. Definitely. But we were talking about how there's a little bit of a larger role for him. It's almost like the stage is set. It's waiting for Elon, and it's, you know, we're calling this your turn Elon Musk. And what do we mean by that? Yeah, so what we mean by that is that we are tired of the billionaires on their side of the aisle, making all of these changes that are extremely disturbing. For example, look at what Zuckerberg did with all those drop boxes that his money bought. Oh, George Soros. But your sorrows, as I've told you before, George Soros not only changed the landscape of Europe, Spain, Portugal, all those Asia. Asia, but he also changed South America. He was very involved in the Venezuelan politics and with ugo Chavez Maduro, his money went down there to change and to change their country and to make sure that it was socialist, and he's trying to do the same thing here. So when people talk about Soros, don't assume that he's just wanting to socialize just America, which is bad enough, but he wants to socialize the entire world and his money can do it. But you know what, Elon? You have more money than George sold. Yeah, I mean, let's put things in perspective. Soros has a lot of money and Soros can spend a $1 billion here a $1 billion there, but if I'm not mistaken Elon Musk's current net worth is close to $300 billion. So this is a guy. He says at times I want to stay out of politics, you know, he'll do a tweet here, a tweet there. Here's Elon Musk kind of pontificating. There are minimum age requirements for the House Senate and presidency, reciprocally. There should be maximum age limits to blah, blah, blah. I mean, this is okay. But it's not really it's not an adequate response to the situation of the country. Hangs in the balance. The only person in the world that can do anything about our politics in America, right? He lives in America, he can literally change. The way the culture is, I mean, I can't emphasize enough, how much Elon, you could help us. Well, it's not just the look, it's not just the fact that he has the opportunity to do it and he has the means to do it. I think it's a broader point. A lot of these entrepreneurs, they work hard at making money, but they don't do enough to protect the infrastructure that makes capitalism possible. But makes their own success possible. Here's Elon Musk a success story..

"And down. This is recode's ronnie. Mola she been reading lot of tweets from elon. Musk and has been paying attention to how it's been moving markets running and truly blessed. Hi adam so go back to that for twenty tweet from twenty eighteen. Tell me a little bit more about the trouble. Daddy lennon too. So the brought must to court Basically because they're saying this is true you didn't have funding secured you misled. Investors sent the stock price up. You know it was nowhere near four twenty at the time. So they ended up settling out of court. He'd have to admit any wrongdoing. But he lost his chairmanship tesla. And musk find a total of twenty million dollars each and he was supposed to run any like market-moving tweets by the company's lawyers kind of the settlement was to sort of get a hold of of this wild twitter. And we've been seeing the tweets alana's sort of famous for being wild on twitter but recently we learned that you didn't really follow the judge's orders. In the case of running his tweets by lawyer right right even after paying forty million dollars was against chairmanship turns out based on this correspondence that the wall street journal through a request that he not running tweets by his lawyers. And the sec's upset that he's not actually following the agreement in the settlement so one of the tweets was about solar reproduction and the other one was him saying that the the stock was too high which actually sent the stock down about ten percent to be clear you on. Musk is still the. Ceo of tesla. Right he is still the. Ceo tesla in a ceo saying that your company's stock prices too high. Seems like a bad idea. Yeah i mean. He just has such an effect on the stock price. And it's like so obvious. Every time he sends a tweet you can chart out. You know how much he sends the tesla's stock upper down. Has anything happened to. Egon tweets by the sec added. The short answer is no There's a lot of back and forth between the sec. And his lawyers lawyers are saying he doesn't really need to run those tweets by them because their opinion Sec tried to hold him in contempt of court for an earlier tweet but the judge was like you guys deal with this and they did by saying okay. Employers have to go re tweets but only when they have to do with production refinances. But that doesn't seem to have stopped him here. I mean sec's only recourse. Would be to try to go back to a federal judge. See if the hold him in contempt or relitigate this whole thing you know get rid of the settlement and try to try to get him in trouble for that original for twenty tweet. So that's sort of one issue with tweets where the government can't get involved but lately we've been seeing. ilan moved. The price of bitcoin crypto currencies. What's happening there. Yeah he he's like not he's not an upper of to move the prices tesla. He's also now tweeting. A lot about cryptocurrencies in particular point and bitcoin. And every time he does so he sends the stock up or down in case of bitcoin. He's been tweeting a lot about the environmental impacts of it. He saying that they're no longer accepting bitcoin as payments every time he doesn't mean like that The price of bitcoin goes down. There's also been tweeting. Positively about those point. Sending the price does point up saying that he's going to work with doj coin developers to make it about air cryptocurrency key clear when alon said that tesla was going to start accepting bitcoin that sent the price of bitcoin way up and then he said they were gonna stop in that senate right back down. Doesn't outface at it made sense because it was weird that he said we're gonna accept bitcoin which is like notoriously bad for the environment. Tesla is eight electric car company. And then you know. He reneged on. That was like okay. No we're not going to accept it because it's bad for the environment some ways he's just like playing around. It seems it seems like he's playing around and there's not a teacher on the playground to stop him. Is that right because his parents bought the playground so they owe him okay right or i guess case a cryptocurrency like who is going to stop him. The crypto police right the the thing with currencies. It's not clear who is any. Us government body regulates at. It's it's unregulated. So he has a lot less to worry about with his crypto tweets than he does with ones for tesla so it sounds like we can expect this to keep happening is the last nike tweeted a medium and some text emoji about breaking up with bitcoin. Stock down something like five percents this morning so it doesn't seem like he's gonna stop he's having fun with it tweet. A lot tweets to express myself some people use their. He's not even just tweeting. About tesla and crypto. He's also like testing the waters with baby. Shark we did that. How much he loves baby. Sharpen how much it crushes that or something and that sent stock price of sohn's publisher up something like ten percent of my head. Why does this matter there. Are there consequences. It's easy for us to talk and joke about and certainly easy for yuan to but why should we pay attention to his tweets of crypto. This matter is because it's become much more mainstream So many more institutional investors and then just regular retail investors. You know people like you and me are investing in stuff like bitcoin and the price is all over the place. He's making people lose or gain lots of money with a single tweet. One of my coworkers said something. Like i lose two hundred bucks every time elon. Musk tweets about bitcoin so here we have someone who is often the richest person in the world tweeting and making others either richer reporter right it might be insubstantial to him but he is definitely messing with other people's wealth. There's also the issue of tesla having a lot of bitcoin so you can say that sort of unfair they were able to turn a profit last quarter. I leave because of selling bitcoin so he's able to make money on.

"To get started now never link. Let's get back to Elon Musk's neuro link. They have implanted this device in a monkey like I said before but the ultimate goal is to begin implanting devices in paralyzed humans and that allow them to control phones computers etc the first big advance for neuro link is that it it has flexible threads which are less likely to damage the brain than materials currently used in brain machine interfaces and these threats also create the possibility of transferring a huge amount of data according to the nearly whitepaper the notes <hes> say that the system could include as many as three thousand seventy two electrodes paret distributed across ninety six threats. People have been doing this for a little while. Though neuro link didn't come out of nowhere. There's a long history of academic research. The building on the shoulders of giants said one of neuro links scientists but none of the existing technology fit neuro links goal directly reading neural spikes in a minimally invasive way so there's also called brain gate which is a series of stiff needles that allows for up to one hundred twenty electrode channels. That's fewer channels neuro link so that means less data that is being picked up and transferred for two devices. It's also stiffer than their links threads and that's a problem for long-term functionality. The brain actually shifts in your skull but the needles of the array don't which could lead to damage brain undamaged so you don't really want to use something that's going to cause you bring damage if you already have something else going on. Neuro link is using very thin polymers to solve that problem so that's the next big leap for Elon Musk. It's in your brain. It's in your head. It's your body communicating with devices and maybe eventually communicating..
