Things Are Falling Everywhere You Look
From rockets to media superstars, big things are falling from great heights this week
Today is the Daily Doom Boom!
Yesterday’s editorial noted how Tesla’s big rocket launch ended looking a little upside-down. Headlines carried today show the “spectacular” ending was, indeed, not quite the spectacle that was intended. Or, as Elon Musk called it, things ended abruptly in “unscheduled disassembly.” More than Elon’s big rocket fell. Tesla’s stocks, yesterday, also nosedived.
As it turns out, many things in today’s headlines are going down in unscheduled disassembly. Dan Bongino unexpectedly announced he is falling from the Fox roster of media superstars. As a result, Bongino also fell from grace with many Trump supporters, who began accusing him of being a sell-out, much to Bongino’s shock, because he supposedly got dumped when he and Fox couldn’t come to terms over how much he should be paid. Hours after announcing an amicable parting with Fox, Bongino had a blow-out with the network over an August clip Fox cut from his show where Trump claimed the election was stolen.
Rumor has it that Maria Bartiromo & Judge Jeanine Pirro may be next to fall, and that won’t be over pay. Rupert Murdock is looking to “cut his vulnerabilities” after losing a vast fortune in the Dominion lawsuit for reporting Trump election claims that were not even believed by superstars like Tucker Carlson, several of whom stated they aired the reports in order to avoid dissatisfying their audiences, while saying deplorable things about Trump, Giuliani and Sidney “Kracken” Powell of camera.
Buzzfeed News, which launched the fake story about the Trump-Russia scandal that blew up in the news years ago, is now going down in a scheduled disassembly, and it appears Vice, the magazine I just questioned over the Chaos AI story, may be going down, too.
Not surprisingly, the economy looks to be nearing a free-fall as leading economic indicators look “brutally bad” with one analyst saying stocks will not escape the velocity of this plunge but will be sucked down in the falling economy’s undertow. Home prices also posted their biggest drop in a decade, and sales to all-cash buyers fell a whopping 24% year over year.
Sudan, after weeks of two generals battling each other, appears to be falling into a civil war. Things are exploding to such an extent now that the US is preparing to evacuate its embassy, and Russia accidentally dropped a large bomb onto one of its own cities, blowing a 66-foot crater into the city floor.
