The People Have Spoken’: Elon Musk Restores X Account Belonging to Alex Jones

X owner Elon Musk reinstated InfoWars host Alex Jones on the social media platform Sunday.

Musk cited a poll which results showed in Jones’ favor.

In a subsequent post at 12:20 a.m. on Sunday, Musk said, “The people have spoken and so it shall be”:

Following the reinstatement, what appears to be Jones’ account shared several posts on the timeline. The profile says he joined the platform in January 2010.

The AP report continued:

Musk, who has described himself as a free speech absolutist, said the move was about protecting those rights. In response to a user who posted that “permanent account bans are antithetical to free speech,” Musk wrote, “I find it hard to disagree with this point.”

The billionaire Tesla CEO also tweeted it’s likely that Community Notes — X’s crowd-sourced fact-checking service — “will respond rapidly to any AJ post that needs correction.”

Biden faces grim re-election odds as he trails leading GOP candidates in two key battleground states

President Biden’s week is off to a rocky start as a new 2024 election poll released Monday found him trailing three of the leading Republican presidential candidates in two key battleground general election matchups.

According to the CNN poll, former President Donald Trump, former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis would nearly all defeat Biden in both Georgia and Michigan — two key states won by the president in 2020 — if the election were held today.

The survey found Trump leading Biden in Michigan by a whopping 10%, receiving 50% support over only 40% who said they would vote for Biden. About 64% of registered voters in the state said they do not approve of Biden’s handling of the presidency.

Trump Says ‘Dictator’ Label Being Pushed On Him Is Latest ‘Hoax’ and ‘Democrat Misinformation’

Former President Donald Trump said at a Republican event in New York on Saturday that a hoax is being revisited by his political rivals for the 2024 election cycle, namely the claim that he’ll act as a “dictator” and undermine democracy if he wins the presidency.

In a speech at the New York Young Republican Club’s 111th Annual Gala on Dec. 9, President Trump dismissed warnings that his victory in next year’s presidential election represents a threat to democracy as a “hoax” and “Democrat misinformation.”

“Can you believe it? This is their new line, you know,” President Trump said. “Here we go again—‘Russia, Russia, Russia,’ ‘Mueller, Mueller, Mueller,’ ‘Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine.’ One hoax after another,” he said.

“But no, I’m not a threat. I will save democracy. The threat is Crooked Joe Biden,” President Trump said, referring to the Democratic president. “And that’s what it is, it’s a hoax. We call it now the threat-to-democracy hoax, because that’s what it is.”

President Trump’s remarks follow an outpouring of news headlines in recent weeks playing up the idea that President Trump would run roughshod over democratic norms if elected in 2024 and would run the country like a “dictator.”
