Photo by Evan Agostini/Invision/AP, File Tesla CEO Elon Musk said in an interview with the Financial Times published on Friday that Taiwan should come under the control of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), supposedly to solve the tension between the two nations. This may be disappointing to many but not surprising, as Musk is beholden to the CCP.
“My recommendation . . . would be to figure out a special administrative zone for Taiwan that is reasonably palatable, probably won’t make everyone happy,” Musk said, according to Just the News . Musk added, “And it’s possible, and I think probably, in fact, that they could have an arrangement that’s more lenient than Hong Kong.” The CCP has been conducting ongoing political crackdowns in Hong Kong.
Elon Musk has been hailed for some months now as a great champion of free speech. But while his comments and his attempt to buy Twitter seem to support free speech, his ties to the Chinese government raise some concerns about his sincerity.
Musk poured effort and money into his Tesla China branch. All major businesses in China are surveilled by and answerable to the CCP. Meanwhile the CCP is running internment camps and inflicting genocide on Xinjiang’s Uyghur Muslims and persecuting up to 50 million Chinese Catholics.
Former White House National Security Council (NSC) chief of staff Alexander Gray told Media Research Center recently that the Chinese government practices “civil-military fusion,” where everything in the economic and tech spheres is accessible to the Chinese military, the People’s Liberation Army. That would include Tesla China.
A report from the Observer in April said that Tesla workers in Shanghai, China, were being forced to work and live under inhumane conditions due to the city’s COVID-19 policies, including being forced to sleep on the factory floor.

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!
