Ever since Elon Musk took control of Twitter, he has been pushing back on the establishment’s narrative.
The tech CEO has taken on government spending, cultural decline, and even the border crisis.
And Elon Musk just sparred with one RINO Senator over the latest legislative disaster in Congress.
“The long-term goal…is enabling illegals to vote!”
Elon Musk has been pushing back on the establishment’s narrative in a big way.
In a post earlier this month, he suggested that “names of legislation or anything done by the government” is almost always misleading.
“When you hear the names of legislation or anything done by the government, it is worth remembering that the group that sent so many people to the guillotine during the French Revolution was called ‘The Committee of Public Safety’, not the ‘Cut Off Their Heads Committee,’” Musk wrote.

The post seemed to foreshadow the release of the new “border security” bill that was released by Senate negotiators earlier this week.
Now the text of the bill has been made public and he’s pushing back harder than ever before.
“The long-term goal of the so-called ‘Border Security’ bill is enabling illegals to vote! It will do the opposite of securing the border,” Musk responded to a post criticizing the irony of the Inflation Reduction Act.
Now one RINO Senator involved in the bill is hitting back.
Lankford said Musk should focus on the “2 million Teslas” under recall
Oklahoma Senator James Lankford discussed the bill and Musk’s opposition to it in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper.
“Now I know that Elon Musk is not an expert on illegal immigration or the border, but he has a huge megaphone. Explain what he’s talking about here. Is he wrong?” Tapper asked.
Lankford slammed Musk and said that the bill is “not focused on trying to be able to get more illegals to vote, that’s absurd. It’s against the law for anyone that is not a citizen of the United States to be able to vote in the United States in any federal election.”
The RINO Senator then took aim at Tesla by suggesting that Musk should focus on the “2 million Teslas that are currently being recalled right now.”
The criticism of the recall was a low blow.
The recall isn’t over a substantive safety concern, but rather the size of the font on the warning panels.
Lankford is simply trying to redirect the conversation after being a target of criticism on social media over the bill.
Lankford’s actions were “unacceptable” no matter the circumstances
Wall Street Silver, a prominent influencer on X, is one of many major accounts that has been targeting Lankford for his work on the recent border security bill.
“Senator Lankford…just threw away his career in the Senate for nothing,” he said.
Senator James Lankford … threw away his career in the Senate for nothing. Mitch McConnell put him in charge of negotiating on behalf of the GOP for a border security bill.
Then when Mitch realized everyone hated it, he told all of the GOP senators to announce they are against… pic.twitter.com/EY4hsV24iM

The influencer went on to say that “everyone on X considers him a traitorous RINO” and that his “reputation is in shambles.”
While some commentators suggested that Mitch McConnell set him up for failure and then threw him to the wolves, Musk still believes his actions are unforgivable.
Lankford either got utterly bamboozled or was in on it. Unacceptable either way.
