Elon Musk to Step Down as Head of Twitter
After Bombshell Poll Results Go Final

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 12/19/2022 11:22:43 AM

Per RedState’s Sunday evening reporting, Elon Musk put out a poll asking if he should step down from Twitter, promising to abide by the result. Well, the result is now in, and a majority believe the newsmaking billionaire should go focus more on Tesla and SpaceX. (Tweet) 61 percent say Musk should “step down as head of Twitter.” That’s not surprising given that Twitter has always been a majority left-wing site. When talking about a poll that got that much play, there was no chance the result would be anything different. In response, some are claiming Musk made a mistake, effectively “owning” himself in the process.

Interesting, I wonder if his poll was a bot trap, over 17 million votes. Really?

I'm sure he knew this would be the result and that he has intended all along to get someone else to actually run the company. He didn't say *when* he will step down, and hopefully he will choose a strong free speech advocate to replace himself.

And he did all of this on his phone while at 45,000 feet; or, hanging around a soccer stadium in Qatar. And he takes the time to pop his media detractors on their lack of coverage of border crisis... "Why do so few report about millions of people crossing the border?"

Wouldn't it be hilarious if he hired someone like, Donald Trump, Jr. or Steve Miller to run Twitter? Heads would explode.

Are people so enraged that Musk is making Twitter a legitimate space to express opinions and not a source of people for the government to go after if they don't agree with the Woke agenda?

I agree he should step down, but not until he finds someone who can develop and assure a fair free speech policy. And capable of fighting off the inevitable attacks from the left, inside and outside Twitter. Your mission's not finished, Elon. It's like selling SpaceX to Bezos before you get to the moon.

Musk, knowing Twitter was a leftwing cesspool perhaps decided to have this poll and to abide by the results because he knew what the results would be. Perhaps leaving the running of Twitter to someone else was his plan all along. Maybe getting back to Tesla and SpaceX was the plan. Certainly, responding to the constant harping from the leftwing nut jobs just got tiresome and he knew his real businesses needed more attention.

I can’t believe that letting someone else run twitter was not always the plan. There is a core of societal value in the product, which includes informative advertising, but mainly it’s a fantasy product for people to use to yell at themselves and believe someone is listening. A little like the argument bureau in monty python. Space and automobiles are more substantive. But twitter was corrupted and needed/needs to be fixed. Like a dog.

When you have the brain power of a Musk, trolling is as easy as breathing. Bot-trap or not, he still _owns_ the thing. So whatever the "storefront" looks like, he that pays the piper calls the tune.

Weird. Did Musk have stepping down in mind all along? If he wanted to stay as CEO, he would not have taken a poll on it. That he did reveals he just wanted the W in buying Twitter or revealing the fraud. Or both. What is next on his agenda, I wonder?

It is hard to believe Musk didn't expect the poll results and have a plan to deal with it. I expect he wanted to free up time to run Space-X and several other ventures. He can name his replacement at Twitter and continue the same policies there. OTOH, another of his huge assets, Tesla, seems headed for big troubles.

My guess is he has already decided that. The poll was no surprise to him. He is simply getting more points (man of his word etc.) as he brings in his chosen successor. Twitter is after all a business. Some professional manager will probably replace him in due course.

#19, SpaceX saved the USA a lot of money and delivered on or ahead of schedule. It would be innovating even faster if the FAA could operate at 21 century. Compare SpaceX to Boeing and it is a big reveal about old vs new thinking. IF SpaceX stopped development right now they would still be years ahead of the rest. After all that, I hope Musk can some how counter the flow of mentally ill neocommunists that infest Twitter. $44 billion is a lot for a broken sewage plant.

IMHO he's using the polls to find the bots. Also heard (read) that he didn't want the CEO job and was looking for a replacement. He has already started to replenish the people on the committee he disbanded. People of character want to work for him.

I honestly believe that, very early on, Musk realized that this was going to be a lot more of an investment in time than he originally thought. So he has been planning to find a way to step down and appoint someone to run Twitter as a full-time job. Several of Trump's kids have time on their hands and the ability to drive lie-berals crazy. That would work for me!!!!!

All Democrats voted in favor of the action while all Republicans on the panel voted against. It's not immediately clear when the documents will be released.

Senate Republicans are gearing up to punch their voters in the mouth again, this time by passing a massive omnibus bill that gives the farm away to Democrats for essentially nothing in return. The reasoning behind the push is a bit of a mystery. Are we really to believe that these Republicans fear a short government shutdown so much that they are willing to concede the power of the purse their party fought so hard to win in November’s election? Color me skeptical on that front. On the contrary, as a nice change of pace, I think this move isn’t about cowardice but is about business as usual.

Predictably, Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s politically motivated House Select Committee wrapped up its one-sided investigation of the Jan. 6, 2021, protest at the U.S. Capitol with criminal referrals against former President Donald Trump. While it may be a stretch to say the criminal referrals were the panel’s objective all along, it was certainly predictable that the nine Trump-hating members would eventually vote to refer Trump to the Department of Justice for prosecution, which is precisely what they did this week on four trumped-up charges: inciting insurrection, conspiracy to defraud the United States, obstruction of an act of Congress, and conspiracy to make a false statement.

We can thank Watergate and the fall of Richard Nixon for numerous words and quotes that continue to shape public understanding of political scandals. There’s “hush money” and “Deep Throat,” a “modified limited hangout” and “follow the money.” But half-a-century later, two other Watergate phrases are key to comprehending the FBI’s sordid role in suppressing The Post’s initial coverage of Hunter Biden’s laptop.  The first is, “What did the president know and when did he know it?” In a 1973 Watergate hearing, the question about the president’s knowledge was asked by Sen. Howard Baker to White House counsel John Dean.

Why Do Liberals Hate Trump So Much? 29 replies

The question in the title needs, I believe, critical examination. Why DOES the Left hate Trump so much? The answer, as usual, can largely be found by analyzing history. But first. Do they hate him because the average price of a gallon of gas in his administration was far lower than under Biden? Is it because inflation was low (around 2%) and trending downward? Is it that the USA was energy independent and didn’t need to beg our enemies for oil, deplete our strategic oil reserve or sell it to China? Is it because black and Hispanic unemployment was lower than at any time in history?

PORTLAND, Ore. — Policymakers for the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality on Monday approved a rule that prohibits the sale of new gasoline-powered passenger vehicles in Oregon by 2035.

The transportation sector accounts for nearly 40% of greenhouse gas emissions in Oregon.
