Elon Musk isn’t one to back down from a challenge, and he is proving that fact yet again in his ongoing attempt to purchase Twitter outright in a bid to restore freedom of speech to the internet. However, his bold move caused the establishment to put a target on his back. As of this week, both Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) have reportedly opened new investigations into the billionaire Tesla founder, according to reports.

Curious timing.

Earlier this week, Fox Business Senior Correspondent Charlie Gasparino broke the news of Biden’s alphabet agencies’ turning their sights on Musk in an appearance on ‘Cavuto: Coast to Coast.’ The longtime legal expert explained that as of right now, it is unclear what Musk has done that warrants the federal probes, but the Twitter takeover likely has a lot to do with it.

Gasparino pointed out that Musk has “stirred up a regulatory hornet’s nest” and the SEC is scrutinizing every little detail of his recent stock trades, looking to nab him on some small technicality.

From Gasparino:

“Both the DOJ and the SEC are clearly scrutinizing this entire matter. Now, we’re getting this from lawyers… they’re clearly monitoring and scrutinizing this entire issue – whether he filed the right forms, whether there’s a stock manipulation case here, whether he’s making public statements that he probably shouldn’t make… What we do know is that he’s stirred up a regulatory hornets’ nest. DOJ, SEC, I’m getting this from lawyers who deal with them.”

Gasparino followed up with more details in a tweet on Thursday:

“[Elon Musk] offers to buy the rest of [Twitter] a legal source tells [Fox Business] [SEC] and [DOJ] have launched what he described as a ‘joint investigation’ into a myriad of Musk regulatory issues primarily involving [Tesla}.”

Musk has gone toe to toe with the SEC in the past, calling it out publicly for filing a complaint against him after he tweeted about taking Tesla private in 2018. At that time, Musk fired back at the federal agency, saying that the action against him was “unjustified” and rejected any claims of wrongdoing completely.

Nevertheless, Musk eventually settled with the SEC, with both him and his company each paying a fine of $20 million in addition to some restrictions surrounding his public statements and his stepping down as the CEO of Tesla.

But this isn’t the same SEC or DOJ, and it isn’t the same type of dissent. This new “joint investigation” is that much more concerning if it takes place. Musk is taking a stand the establishment just can’t afford to let succeed.

Big tech, the legacy media, politicians in the DC swamp, and elites alike have resoundingly condemned Musk’s crusade because the success of their radical anti-American agenda relies completely on silencing the truths that contradict the approved narratives. Twitter itself is even jeopardizing its own financial prospects and betraying its shareholders in a desperate attempt to fend off the hostile takeover bid. Capitalists don’t turn down a free $10 billion dollars, which is what Musk offered over Twitter’s market value – radical ideologues focused on controlling people’s thoughts for the sake of their dystopian agenda do.

Without the ability for mass censorship of dissenting thoughts, which is what Twitter provides in excess, the propaganda would not have the same effect. The unhinged meltdown to condemn free speech by media elitists has exposed exactly how radical they truly are.

In just one example, the progressive activists at the LA Times  said it  outright: Musk buying the left’s most effective censorship tool would create “more freedom” and “less democracy.” ‘Democracy’ in this case means the (il)liberal world order, of course.

As Revolver News put it last week, “the world’s richest man might be on the cusp of launching a global crusade to restore freedom of speech” – so, naturally, the Biden regime and the sycophants in the media can’t just sit around and let it happen.
