- Technical Difficulties Plague DeSantis, Musk Twitter Spaces Campaign Launch
Breitbart – Technical issues plagued the beginning of highly anticipated presidential campaign launch of Gov. Ron DeSantis, as the initial Twitter Spaces audio continued to cut out prior to DeSantis even being introduced.
The Twitter Spaces call, scheduled to launch at 6 p.m. Eastern, began several minutes late as one unidentified voice whispered that it was “quiet.” David Sacks, the entrepreneur hosting the event, began to introduce Elon Musk and asserted that this was “historic” before the audio cut out. From then on, the audio continued to cut in out several times, with continued echoing and seemingly random voices — not the voice of the governor, whom the conversation was all about.
“I’d like to just introduce the folks in the room here. So it’s safe to say we wouldn’t be making history without the man sitting next to me, Elon Musk his decision to purchase this platform last year,” Sacks said, praising Musk before audio issues began to take over.
They continued to come up with reasons for the audio issues, asserting that they were “melting the serves,” which they viewed as a “good sign.” Eventually, the entire audio ended, leaving many listeners confuse in a state of silence.

Denny’s Insight: Obviously last night did not go as planned for DeSantis and Musk. I must give them credit for trying something unique and different to announce his campaign launch, but the memes and commentary coming out of the failed Spaces event have been brutal. Luckily for DeSantis, attention spans are short and this event will soon be forgotten about as the campaign kicks up.
2. Nvidia stock surged by as much as 28% in after-hours trading following the blockbuster earnings report:
Fox Business – Nvidia has emerged as one of the leaders of the tech companies racing to incorporate advanced artificial intelligence (AI) tools into their products, and the company’s stock has surged amid growth in demand.
While there are no “pure play” AI stocks, as all the publicly-traded companies heavily involved in AI have other business offerings, Nvidia has come to be considered one of the leaders in the field despite being in a similar position.
Nvidia stock has soared by 113% year-to-date as of Wednesday’s close – outpacing some of the biggest names in tech and AI including Google and Microsoft which have enjoyed 30% growth in their share prices in the same period. After the market closed Wednesday and Nvidia held its earning call, its share price surged as much as 28% in after-hours trading to extend its lead as the world’s most valuable chipmaker and the fifth most valuable company on Wall Street.
“Generative AI is driving exponential growth in compute requirements and a fast transition to Nvidia accelerated computing, which is the most versatile, most energy efficient and the lowest [total cost of ownership] approach to train and deploy AI,” said Colette Kress, Nvidia chief financial officer and executive vice president. “Generative AI drove significant upside in demand for our products, creating opportunities and broad-based global growth across all markets.”

Denny’s Insight: Nvidia has been a leading tech company for years, but it does not surprise me the producer of supercomputer software and critical parts is dominating the A.I. game. It sounds like they’ve “cracked the code.” With a stock surge of nearly 30%, this is definitely a player in the A.I. world to look out for.
3. Republicans Savagely Put Joy Behar In Her Place Over Comment On Black Conservatives:
Townhall – Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) and Rep. Byron Donalds( R-Fla) unleash fury on The View host Joy Behar for claiming Black conservatives don’t understand racism in the United States.
For those who don’t watch the liberal-filled panel talk about things they have no idea about, Behar insinuated that Black Republican Americans, including Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, “don’t get” the struggles of being a U.S. African-American because they choose to ignore or never had to face systemic racism.
“He’s one of these guys, like Clarence Thomas, Black Republican, who believes in pulling yourself up by your bootstraps rather than understanding the systemic racism that African Americans face in this country and other minorities. He doesn’t get it. Neither does Clarence. That’s why they are Republicans,” Behar said.
Reacting to Behar’s ignorant remarks, Scott said he is the presidential candidate the radical Left fears the most.
When a Black conservative who believes in the future of this nation stands up to be counted, they lose their minds.
That’s why I’m the candidate the radical Left fears the most. https://t.co/JBAVZUjpZt

Joy, dressing up as a Black woman for Halloween with dark paint on your face doesn’t magically make you Black or make you an expert on what it’s like to be Black.
From one Black person to another White liberal who got a pass for wearing Black face, sit this one out. https://t.co/cz2j96SeJJ

Denny’s Insight: There’s nothing more patronizing than a white liberal woman telling Black conservatives how they should view racism and how they should vote. Luckily, only mindless hacks watch The View and agree with their incompetent talking points. Good on Scott and Donalds pointing out her BS and history of blackface.
4. George Washington University announces new moniker after student backlash:
NY Post – Out with the old, in with the new. George Washington University changed its “Colonials” moniker to “Revolutionaries” after facing scrutiny from students who deemed the school’s mascot as offensive.
NBC anchor and alumnus Chuck Todd helped reveal the new name Wednesday, scrapping the former centuries-old Colonials name the school was under since 1926. The school committee received 8,000 suggestions and 47,000 points of feedback, narrowing it all down to the final 10 names that best fit, the school said in a press release.
George Washington was pressured to come up with a plan to dispel the Colonials’ name in 2018. More than 530 students objected to the “extremely offensive” Colonials moniker and claimed it “has too deep a connection colonization and glorifies the act of systemic oppression.”
The dream of the George Washington University Blue Fog or Hippos died today.
Chuck Todd of all people delivered the sad news: the Colonials are the Revolutionaries.

5. Criminal justice reforms after George Floyd put city police in ‘catastrophic’ state:
Washington Examiner – Three years after George Floyd’s death at the hands of Minneapolis police officers, the criminal justice movement he inspired has come nearly full circle.
The police departments whose budgets the movement sought to slash are flush with cash again. The officers labeled as agents of systemic racism are fielding offers of hefty signing bonuses from city governments eager to welcome them.
Calls for more lenient treatment of offenders have given way to calls, from even those sympathetic to the cause, for more aggressive enforcement of the law.
Criminal justice reform advocacy did not begin on May 25, 2020, when a police officer knelt on Floyd’s neck until he died in a brutal encounter captured on video. Nor has it ended with the spike in crime that’s hit major cities since then.
But progressive criminal justice reform burst into the mainstream so forcefully three years ago that lawmakers ushered in changes they may now find difficult to reverse.
“It’s a well-intentioned catastrophe,” Douglas Carswell, president and CEO of the Mississippi Center for Public Policy, told the Washington Examiner. “We can now begin to see what the effect of the defund-the-police, anti-incarceration agenda is having, and it’s been catastrophic.”
Pres. Biden: “The day before her father’s funeral, George Floyd’s young daughter Gianna told me, ‘Daddy changed the world.’
Three years after her father’s murder, my answer to Gianna remains the same: he has.” https://t.co/rpJQWjtpin pic.twitter.com/kD0A1P5hy7

Denny’s Insight: Here comes my question for you, the reader… Given how Floyd’s death has sparked anti-police sentiment to its highest fever pitch, especially in Democratic cities, my question to you is the following: If you were the leader or mayor of a big city, how would you protect and enhance your police department? What measures or policies would you implement so they would never have to face fears of being defunded and letting the city go to hell? Would you militarize them, upgrade their equipment and resources, a mix of both, etc.? I’m very curious, so please leave your comment in the comment section below!
Quit hating cops because some idiot got killed. The whole Floyd thing was just a way to make people fear racism that isn’t there. They push racism as if it still exists when it doesn’t. Give the cops the equipment they need. Quit hating the only men and women who protect us on a daily basis. They did nothing wrong it is just a way to ease the hatred that liberals have for anyone who doesn’t toe their line. Liberals are insane.
As an Asian American of Chinese descent, to me, racism is dead as far as I am concerned. The word should be banned and taken off the dictionary. The reason why Democrats, liberals and progressive cry racism is because they want to enslave the minority votes, especially the blacks. They know the use of racism will end one day, hence the influx of migrants to give them a path to citizenship for their votes. They know they are losing minority votes.
When your IQ is 75 but you think it is 220 you must be a liberal
Love the comments. Good work!
Personally, I think the Floyd thing was a set-up by the left. I don’t see it as a murder. Floyd was a large man out of his mind on drugs. The only video shown was of the cop’s knee on his neck. They stopped showing Floyd acting like a wild animal on screen after they showed it the first time. I would call Guilianni & follow what he put in place for NY. It was the only time NY city was in decent shape. Also, I would definitely up the pay…..a lot…..for police.
I agree! Floyd was a common criminal who was canonized by the left to push their racist narrative! Look back at the Guliani days, when he was mayor. The best NYC ever had! Treat the police with more respect and start by teaching children how to respect and trust the men and women in blue!
More money for more equipment for departments that are already militarized against a populous that is in the throws of battle trying to hold onto 2A rights to protect against tyranny -I don’t see as an answer. More money for more people, effective training and community engagement may be a start. We need prosecutors that will hold people accountable with consequences.
Unfortunately the policies the liberal left employed have given crime free regin. I don’t blame any police man/ woman who quit. I believe it will be hard for these cities to get police back again. I think they should be given all the equipment they need to protect themselves. I don’t know if N Y or Chicago, Portland, etc are salvageable, maybe once leadership changes in their mayor’s & governors however they go from bad to worse. Adams ran as a republican who being in the police & to clean up crime and we see how just a great jobs he is doing…. for the criminals. If you don’t get rid of prosecutors who do not do their sworn duty which goes from the WH on down it won’t change either.
3. When will this nonsense end? Pull the plug.
4. Caving to a small minority only because it affiliates with dangerous organizations that are lawless and will destroy at a call.
5. Any officer of the law that has chosen to work for the pay they receive (too low) should be commended for dedication and commitment to help, protect and serve in a dangerous life threatening situation never knowing on a daily basis if their family will ever see them again. I’ve always felt they should make more. Something’s wrong when our priorities are confused about who should be highly respected. The public seems to idolize sport figures or celebrities with $$$$$. My hero is a police officer. Law enforcement should receive a deserving pay.
Also, introduce law enforcement visits/presentations to schools in the early grades, beginning in Pre-K. This will enforce the importance of safety, right vs wrong, and how they serve the public early on with a positive understanding.
I would start by going after media. They would never be allowed to mention color or race in their articles. They are fueling the fire! Support the police & punish the criminals.
As a former police officer, creating an atmosphere of support for the police department and its officers is crucial for maintaining a safe and secure community. Here are some ways in which I would create an atmosphere of support for my police department and its officers:
1. Recognize and appreciate their hard work: Police officers work hard to keep our communities safe, and it is important to recognize and appreciate their efforts. I would publicly acknowledge the hard work of police officers and thank them for their service.
2. Provide resources and equipment: Police officers need the proper resources and equipment to do their job effectively. I would work to ensure that the police department has the necessary resources and equipment to keep our communities safe.
3. Encourage community involvement: Community involvement is crucial for building trust between the police department and the community. I would encourage community members to get involved in neighborhood watch programs and other initiatives that promote community safety.
4. Foster a positive work environment: A positive work environment is essential for the well-being of police officers. I would work to create a positive work environment that promotes teamwork, communication, and mutual respect.
5. Provide mental health support: Police officers are often exposed to traumatic situations that can have a negative impact on their mental health. I would work to provide mental health support for police officers to ensure that they are able to cope with the stress of their job.
6. Advocate for fair compensation: Police officers deserve fair compensation for their hard work and dedication. I would advocate for fair compensation for police officers to ensure that they are able to support themselves and their families.
Creating an atmosphere of support for the police department and its officers requires a multifaceted approach. By recognizing and appreciating their hard work, providing resources and equipment, encouraging community involvement, fostering a positive work environment, providing mental health support, and advocating for fair compensation, we can create a supportive environment that promotes community safety and well-being.
The labels have got to go! Every occupation on earth can have people with nefarious intent. All of them. When good people do nothing is key. Our communities are not built on law enforcement alone and it takes good people to unite with those organizations that we design to keep us all safe and support them. We can not stand against them and thrive.
Every organization/group has both good and bad. Politics, religion, race, family. My family and faith taught me to accept the good and pray for conversion of the bad. Unfortunately our “news” focuses primarily on the bad and says very little about the good. I have limited my news time to a few sites that I believe tell the truth and have stopped accessing the others. Since then I realize that I am much happier and sleep much better. God is good…put our focus there for truth, peace and joy.
Curious if you know any link of Bill Gates company Apeel putting a form of covid-vaccine in our fruits and vegetables, like avocado. Saying it is keeping them fresh longer. I saw something on instagram but can not find it now.
