And so the "Twitter Files" Limited Hangout has come to its inevitable, ignominious end. It is over. The Twitter-Files story is dead. It isn't pining for the fjords. It is deceased, cadaverous, bereft of life. It has bought the farm and gone to meet its maker. It is Humpty Dumpty. It has fallen off the wall. Nothing can put it back together again.
Called it, nailed it, killed it, CJ.
Too bad being right isn’t gratifying enough to offset the grief, but your cynical prognostications at least bulletproofed you (and those of us who concurred) against disappointment.
“Elon’s Flying Narcissistic Circus”—that is too good not to use, even though we know our enemies will be spending that gift to their advantage, as you spotted well.
The Twitter Files served a purpose I'd say, and I think the continued work of Matt Taibbi, Glenn Greenwald, Russell Brand, Jacob Siegel, Lee Fang, Aaron Mate, Max Blumenthal, David Zweig, Michael Shellenberger, Leighton Woodhouse, Joe Rogan, Martin Gurri, Bari Weiss and her team, and a host of others — including yourself — in the indie media sphere will draw more converts. Legacy media, intelligence, government and the corporate sphere will continue to ignore it, lie about it, and try to legislate it out of existence, but the genie is out of the bottle and I don't think they can put it back in.
Keep fighting the good fight, and don't give up on it now.
Reading an essay on the calculated efficiency of our Trumanesque reality is much less painful when it’s so wonderfully written.
Yours truly has been exposing this CIA fraudster Musk for quite some time; to wit:
REPOST: Elon Musk Officially Takes Over Twitter in the Latest "Genius" Con
REPOST: PSYOP-MUSK and the X "Everything App"
I continue to be appreciative that you defined limited hangout for me. The concept has come in handy on a practically daily basis.
"I don't believe any of this was intentional, or at least not a conscious plan on Musk's part -- I'm not quite that gibberingly paranoid..." Oh, I am and I do.
Musk played his part just like Trump and other key figures continue to play theirs. This has always and continues to be theater for the masses. The play has already been written and these actors and actresses are just playing their roles. This isn't paranoia, it's the unfortunate reality that we must face.
Tesla and Space X are government dependent-private entities, aka corporate fascism. So no surprise, just disappointment.
One must first get the plebe’s hopes up so they can be dashed properly
Limited Hangout. I like that term. It's typical strategy for them, all of them.
I remember once in college (I went to college) where I took a course in history; it was something like Britain from 1840 to 1914. One day we had a guest lecturer who was explaining the reasons for WWI. There were a lot of reasons being trotted out; let's say there were nine of them. In retrospect all those reasons were probably true, but he didn't mention anything else. Knowing what I know now, I can offer three more reasons. Then the question becomes what is the relative significance of each of those 12 reasons? Well, the official nine reasons are really reasons four through 12. The unspoken other three are reasons one, two, and three. If you have reasons 1-3, you've got the war; reasons four through 12 are totally subsidiary. In fact if you've got reason one, you've got the war.
It recalls Asimov's dictum, which goes something like, "The more truth in the lie, the better the lie. And the best lie, when it can be used, is the truth itself."
Yep, kudos for seeing this one coming from a mile away C.J. In a society in which apparently a growing number of people can no longer figure out "what a woman is" - it would clearly be the equivalent of "rocket science" for those people to figure out - "what a limited hangout is."
Elon Musk is a Globalist with his own agenda.
Good article. Censorship on Twitter is at the same or higher levels than it was prior to Musk's purchase:
The unstated key aspect about all of this is that Twitter, along with Facebook, Google, etc, all are infested with a huge number of active CIA/FBI agents whose job function is censorship of populism on the platform, i.e. see here: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11562433/Facebook-riddled-ex-CIA-agents-ex-FBI-agents-work-Twitter.html and here https://www.mintpressnews.com/national-security-search-engine-google-ranks-cia-agents/281490/
Part of the proposed RESTRICT Act is to put pressure on Musk not to clean house; if he does, then they will pass the Act and take control over Twitter directly. Nasty games behind the scenes.
But also, keep in mind Elon is telling you exactly who he is: his Twitter profile photo is himself in a Satanic Bahomet costume. Lastly, see here: https://i0.wp.com/www.technocracy.news/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/musk-comparison.jpeg?ssl=1
Shurely, that's the point of Muskrat's epiphany? To kill the story, to emasculate, disembowel, marginalise and otherwise dispose of an embarrassing episode in the life and death of what could have been, should have been, a revelation. It's how every exposé is dealt with in the world of NewsSpeak. It's also ironic that having failed to manage an out-of-control and dying capitalism, they can spend so much energy and skill in murdering the truth and do it over and over again. It reveals their true intentions (were anybody watching that is).
We can't really expect more from someone with a background of superiority in South Africa during apartheid and who keeps procreating like the superior sperm spreader he sees himself as. Money corrupts...way too much money corrupts in ways we humans will inevitably pay for BIG TIME. I blame the Jesus Mythology for all of this...had we stayed pagans we would be having a lot more fun and have solid connections to what matters.....the natural world.
This is absolutely a limited hangout. I so appreciate your framing of recent events. I have all three collections of your essays on the way to my house! Very glad to have found you.
Simping for anyone is always a bad idea.
