"The object of terrorism is terrorism. The object of oppression is oppression. The object of torture is torture. The object of murder is murder. The object of power is power. Now do you begin to understand me?" -- George Orwell, 1984
The shocking implosion of the FTX crypto exchange has become an embarrassment for a who’s who among global elites, with some issuing mea culpas — and others apparently scrambling to hide their ties to its disgraced, 30-year-old founder Sam Bankman-Fried.
Web archive sites show that the World Economic Forum — whose glitzy shindig in Davos, Switzerland is a must-attend for billionaires and world leaders each year — had previously listed FTX as one of its “partners,” touting the Bahamas-based firm as a “cryptocurrency exchange built by traders, for traders.”
Bankman-Fried also was a speaker at Davos last May alongside luminaries such as Google financial chief Ruth Porat and Bill Winters, CEO of the London-based financial giant Standard Chartered. Nevertheless, WEF has since scrubbed any mention of FTX from its website in the days after the crypto exchange filed for bankruptcy.
The Geneva-based organization headed by Klaus Schwab didn’t immediately respond to Post inquiries. According to one WEF insider, Bankman-Fried likely landed on the group’s site because he donated cash to the group, in addition to his upcoming speaking gig.

Alphabet’s Google will pay $391.5 million to settle allegations by 40 states that the search and advertising giant illegally tracked users’ locations, the Michigan attorney general’s office said Monday.
The investigation and settlement, which was led by Oregon and Nebraska, is a sign of mounting legal headaches for the tech giant from state attorneys general who have aggressively targeted the firm’s user tracking practices in recent months.
In addition to the payment, Google must be more transparent with consumers about when location tracking is occurring and give users detailed information about location-tracking data on a special web page, the Iowa attorney general’s office said.
The University of Virginia student who allegedly killed three members of the football team had been on the police’s radar since September and had a prior criminal incident involving a concealed weapon, officials revealed at a press conference Monday.
Christopher Darnell Jones Jr. was arrested after a 12-hour manhunt following the shootings at the school’s Charlottesville campus on Sunday night.
“Because I want to be transparent with you, I want you to know [that]…Mr. Jones came to the attention of the University of Virginia’s threat assessment team in the fall of 2022,” the school’s chief of police Tim Longo said.
“They received information that Mr. Jones had made a comment about possessing a gun to a person that was unaffiliated with the university,” he said.
Shares of the Walt Disney Co. are down more than 60 percent so far this year and aren’t expected to recover anytime soon as the company is likely to announce a “painful cycle” of earnings cuts in the months ahead that will make the stock look even more unattractive to investors, according to a new report.

Elon Musk has yet to bring freedom of speech to Twitter, but he is nonetheless paying the price for it.
Demon-RAT Senator Ed Markey (more like Ed Malarkey, amirite?) has begun issuing extremist and terroristic threats towards Elon Musk, demanding he change Twitter in all the ways he wants it changed – or else.
The exchange started with Markey spewing dumb 20-year-old memes about rich people “putting profits over people” and suggesting that Musk is making money by not censoring people enough. He demanded answers over an impersonation account of him made by the WaPo.

Iconic conservative commentator Mark Levin went scorched earth on Sunday night and addressed Republicans’ “underwhelming performance” in the midterm elections.
During the opening monologue on his show, “Life, Liberty & Levin,” he told viewers that the expected Republican gains were “mathematically impossible” and never indicated a “red wave,” despite polling and predictions from many that claimed Democrats were posed to underperform.
“I noticed that many of the same people who were wrong about a red wave are now telling us what to think about a non-red wave. The experts, the consultants, the ruling class, the media, and the politicians. We need to think for ourselves, enough of the static. I said before the election, and I said repeatedly here and on the radio: Forget about the red wave. Forget about a red tsunami. Forget about Armageddon and vote,” Levin began.
Webmaster addition: Maybe it would be better to look carefully at the election system!

The Biden Administration has become known for almost supporting the migrant crisis at the border.
They refuse to take action and even take action to ensure that states can’t do anything. For example, when Arizona attempted to build a wall of shipping creates to help reduce the surge of illegal immigrants. The Biden administration wants to ensure that illegal immigrants have access to abortion.
