All right, guys, question of the day today: Did Elon Musk just prevent World War III?
Yeah, he did. I’m going to explain to you how, but first I want to talk to you guys about Western propaganda.
This topic is something that fascinates me. Most people think propaganda doesn’t happen in Western countries. It should be so obvious by now that that is not the case. And that propaganda is a big reason why the Left feared Musk buying Twitter.
For example, on Tuesday, President Donald Trump announced he is running for president in 2024. We all knew it was coming and you could sense that it was coming imminently because the press sort of started this peer pressure campaign to divide the GOP: DeSantis or Trump? Pick a side!
And then in true Western propaganda form, they were in lockstep across the media just insulting him after his announcement.
The media instantly ran with all sorts of wild headlines. Here are just a few:
NPR: Donald Trump, who tried to overturn Biden’s legitimate election, launches 2024 bid
CNBC: Donald Trump, twice impeached and under FBI investigation, launches 2024 White House bid
NBC: Trump, whose lies about the 2020 election inspired an insurrection, announces third White House bid
OK, we get the narrative. You all think he’s an evil monster who won’t go away.
The media really seem to be saying they’re all making the same argument ‘because we are trying to uphold the truth — not because we all seem to be operating in lockstep.’
This brings me to the next person who I want to talk about who is engaged in propaganda and who the media loves to celebrate with the exact same tone: President Volodymyr Zelensky.
As I have said since the beginning of the war, he is a dirtbag. I can’t make myself any clearer on that.
Just when the media abandoned the COVID narrative and said ‘you all forget about the sloppy Afghanistan withdrawal,’ they told you that suddenly you needed to trade in your BLM flags for Ukrainian flags.
Zelensky became a hero overnight in the media. The media basically said, ‘You either get on team Zelensky, or we are going to smear you as a pro-Putin puppet.’
I didn’t take that bait because I don’t care what the legacy media thinks of me.
Why would I care?
He’s a fraud. He’s getting magazine spreads and Oscars from Sean Penn and meeting with celebrities while demanding more money and aid from the United States.
And now, in case you missed it, yesterday he recklessly claimed that Russian missiles hit Poland, killing two. He called on NATO to directly hop into the war and defend Poland — despite no proof Russia did it. In essence, it would have started World War III.
When I saw it, I said clearly this is a lie. The narrative defied common sense. Why would Russia attack NATO? They are losing the war. Unless you’re completely insane, it would make no sense for Russian President Vladimir Putin to attack the West — among other reasons.
But then something happened that proved me right.
And this is why Elon Musk may have just prevented another world war.
A user on Twitter who happens to track Ukrainian weaponry used a photo of the debris to identify the weapon.
He tweeted, “So what crashed in the village of Przewodów, Poland today? With the cooperation of @blueboy1969 we analyzed the available photos of fragments and came to a clear conclusion that they belong to the 48D6 motor of the 5V55-series missile of the S-300 AD system- a Ukrainian one.”

By Wednesday morning, authorities confirmed that it seemed unlikely that the rocket came from Russia and rather came from Ukraine.
So Zelensky, it seems, intentionally spread misinformation because he wanted the globe to react to his lies and get involved. He said directly, “Terror is not limited to our national borders. Russian missiles hit Poland — NATO territory,” the former comedian said confidently on Wednesday. “This is a Russian missile attack on collective security — a very significant escalation. We must act.”

And here’s my personal take on it. Zelensky is a real actor — and a bad-faith one. And I believe what he attempted yesterday was to start World War III.
If not for Twitter users quickly calling out his lies, the media may have ran right ahead with the notion that Russia attacked Poland.
So Elon Musk may have prevented World War III because his plan for Twitter upends the Left’s plan to control the conversation. Individuals can share facts that contradict the propaganda on Twitter.
We are all empowered to become citizen-journalists, which in turn removes power from the mainstream media and their narratives fall apart.
