Tesla CEO Elon Musk filed a countersuit against Twitter, intensifying his legal battle with the social media platform over pulling out of his $44 billion agreement to buy out the company.
The 164-page lawsuit was filed under seal just minutes before the 5 p.m. judge imposed deadline.
According to the New York Post, the contents of the suit were not immediately released to the public, however a redacted version may be available next week.
“I have reviewed the counterclaims and declare that the matter contained therein insofar as it concerns my acts and deeds is true, and insofar as it relates to the acts and deeds of any other person, I believe it to be true,” an accompanying filing signed by Musk read.
The Wall Street Journal reported that the lawsuit includes a quote from Warren Buffett: “Only when the tide goes out do you discover who’s been swimming naked.”
The quote is apparently in reference to Musk’s accusation that Twitter has hidden a fake account problem.
Musk’s lawsuit comes hours after Chancellor Kathaleen St. J. McCormick of a Delaware court ordered a five-day trial beginning October 17 to determine if Musk can walk away from the deal.According to NBC, Musk asked the court to keep some details of the suit confidential despite the billionaire being vocal on the social media platform months leading up to it.Earlier this year, Musk announced he was buying Twitter for $44 billionaire, however he backed out in July after claiming Twitter of lying about the number of spam and bot accounts on its platform, and denying him access to information about their handling of these accounts.In return, Twitter sued Musk after he terminated the deal, sending the two to fight it out in court for not holding up his end of the deal.
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
