    What’s worse…. Election lies destabilizing democracy or a private platform trying to do something about misinformation?

    Clearly you are fighting for your constitutional freedom to be dishonest. That’s really what this is about… the ability to lie and profit of it.

    The election lies squad already lost in court. They already lost with their recounts.

    Exclusive: Tesla faces U.S. criminal probe over self-driving claims
    Seems more than belated for Elon to be caught in all these probes after he's made outrageous claims for more than 5 years.

    It's as if insiders who owned Tesla stock have suddenly decided to jump ship and are more inclined to Pursue Truth now that Elon isn't toeing the company line.

    Just a hypothetical.

    Yes I have "full self-driving" and I wouldn't trust it.

    "resigned" lol

    Maybe @Major should "resign" from making completely wrong predictions on Clutchfans.

    It's hilarious that he claims he blocked me - clearly doesn't want to own up to his massive L. Been lecturing us like a real *******, and couldn't have been more wrong.

    Is this season 3 or 4 of the Elon marathon saga?

    At this pace, might take another 2-3 seasons for him to take on the American government.

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/arti...e-thinks-he-ll-stick-with-musk-in-twitter-bid

    Binance Holdings Ltd.’s chief executive officer said he thinks he will stick with Elon Musk’s proposed $44 billion buyout of Twitter Inc. amid potential concerns from Washington about foreign investors backing the bid.

    “I think so,” Changpeng Zhao said when asked if he will stand by his financial commitment to Musk. Zhao spoke in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, where he was attending the kingdom’s Future Investment Initiative conference on Tuesday.

    Biden administration officials are discussing whether the US should subject some of Elon Musk’s ventures to national security reviews, including the deal for Twitter and SpaceX’s Starlink satellite network, Bloomberg reported last week, citing people familiar with the matter. The Twitter sale faces a Friday deadline for closing, or risks ending up back in court.


    Some US officials may be concerned about foreign investors backing Musk’s bid, including Prince Alwaleed bin Talal of Saudi Arabia, Binance -- a digital-asset exchange founded and run by a Chinese native -- and Qatar’s sovereign wealth fund, said Gregory Lafitte, who heads merger arbitrage trading at Tradition Securities and Futures, in written comments last week.

    Binance said in May it committed $500 million for Musk’s proposed takeover of Twitter as part of its strategy to bring social media and news sites into the world of web3.​

    Zhao will of course stick to what he said - I had some bites with him the other day. But it's a rounding error for Elon.

    “CEO Parag Agrawal, chief financial officer Ned Segal, and Vijaya Gadde, head of legal policy, trust, and safety, were all fired, according to the people.”

    “The three top Twitter executives were hastily shuttled from the building, the people said. The deal closing caps a months-long roller coaster saga.” — WaPo

    ___________

    “The Twitter executives who were fired include Parag Agrawal, Twitter’s chief executive, Ned Segal, the chief financial officer, Vijaya Gadde, the top legal and policy executive, and Sean Edgett, the general counsel, said the people, who declined to be identified because they were not authorized to speak publicly.”

    “At least one of the executives who was fired was escorted out of Twitter’s office, they said.” — NYTimes

    Elon has the f you money to do it that way.

    Now, these guys are going to leave with KPJ type of money. Similarly deserved. So, no need to feel sorry for them. I'd be luck to get close to that (in cash - on paper, it has been close, maybe).
