Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, who is leading her Democratic opponent, has made a pitch to Elon Musk after the billionaire entrepreneur took over control of Twitter this week.
Lake, who has a roughly 3-point lead over Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, appealed to the SpaceX and Tesla founder to move Twitter’s headquarters to her state.
“Hey @elonmusk — you have an open invitation to move @Twitter HQ to Arizona. DM me and we’ll work it out!” the former Phoenix-area newscaster tweeted on Friday. DM me and we’ll work it out! After Musk’s deal went through on Thursday, he immediately made changes at the top echelons of the company, The Wall Street Journal reported :
Mr. Musk fired Chief Executive Parag Agrawal and Chief Financial Officer Ned Segal after the deal closed, the people said. Spokespeople for Twitter didn’t comment.
It wasn’t immediately clear who would step into those top positions. CNBC previously reported the firings. Mr. Musk also fired Vijaya Gadde, Twitter’s top legal and policy executive, and Sean Edgett, general counsel. Earlier this week, Musk signaled the deal was done when he posted a video clip of himself walking into Twitter headquarters in San Francisco carrying a sink, adding: “Entering Twitter HQ – Let that sink in!”In addition, Musk changed his Twitter bio to read “Chief Twit.” Later, he tweeted, “Meeting a lot of cool people at Twitter today.”Musk faced a 5 p.m. deadline on Friday to complete the deal, or litigation to force him to proceed with it would have relaunched in Delaware.All said, Musk is prepared to make major changes to the workforce at Twitter when he officially owns the company.For instance, he plans to cut the workforce by “nearly 75 […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
