Elon and the Magnificient Twitter Deal

elon musk (3018710552) (1)

As if repudiating the cultural zeitgeist, Elon Musk has decided to purchase Twitter, a large social media platform, to add to his stack of companies like Tesla, SpaceX, Starlink, and the Boring company. While he has taken several unique perspectives, from fighting against population decline (citing it as a major problem), the Ghislaine-Epstein child sex trafficking scandal, and colonization of Mars, he seems to be a free speech absolutist. Musk believes that freedom of speech is not constrained by the feelings of an individual who hears it, that everyone should be allowed to speak, and...

No Charges for Cop Who Ran Over and Killed Wounded, 911 Caller

cruiser runs over man 1050x525

A year ago, on June 13, 2021, 42-year-old Eric Cole called 911 for help, like he was supposed to do, after he was shot in the arm. However, police were the first to show up on the scene and help was the last thing Cole received. In fact, he received the exact opposite—and it killed him. Police Chief Lee Graf referred to the negligence of one of his officers—Amanda Rosales—as an “accident,” which left Cole dead. While it may not have been on purpose, dashcam video shows it was completely avoidable. Eric Cole lie bleeding on the ground from a gunshot wound to the forearm when officer...

Actually, Socialism IS When the Government Does Stuff

img 1604

Of course, that is too honest to be a real Karl Marx quote. It is a popular meme that is used to mock the allegedly misguided view of many who oppose socialism. It has been famously paraphrased by prominent socialist, Richard Wolff. “Socialism is when the government does stuff; and it's more socialism the more stuff it does; and if it does a real lot of stuff, it's communism.” These comments were made sarcastically, as socialists do not believe that “government doing stuff” accurately sums up their ideology. I intend to argue that it does. Let me be clear: I am not proposing an alternate...

6/3/22 Tom Secker on the Pentagon’s Control Over Top Gun: Maverick

 Download Episode. Scott interviewed British journalist Tom Secker about the Pentagon’s role in producing Top Gun: Maverick. The Department of Defense has an entire office set up to work with Hollywood. They give producers access to some military personnel as well as equipment in exchange for the final say over the script. Secker has gone through many documents over the years to find exactly what the military has changed in popular films. But with the Top Gun movies, the relationship is on a whole other level. Secker lays out the history of the first film, the sequel that got scrapped...

Cop Receives No Jail Time After Gunning Down Innocent Couple, Confusing Them for Robbers

As TFTP reported in 2019, citizens of New Haven protested for several days after April 16 when police blocked in a couple in their vehicle and opened fire on them for no reason. The entire incident was captured on video and showed the utter cowardice and ridiculous violence carried out by New Haven’s best.

According to police, Hamden officer Devon Eaton and Yale police officer Terrance Pollock were responding to reports of a robbery at a nearby gas station...
