Former CIA Agent Wants to Buy Twitter to Keep President Trump From Using It http://time.com/4912853/valerie-plame-wilson-donald-trump-twitter/ That's just way too much money in the wrong hands. It's just got to have something to do with the shady quasi-government no-book-profit private investment firm In-Q-Tel: IQT is the non-profit strategic investor that accelerates the development and delivery of cutting-edge technologies to U.S. government agencies that keep our nation safe. Our work bridges the gap between the challenging technology needs of the national security agencies, the rapidly changing innovations of the startup world, and the venture community that funds those startups. IQT occupies a distinct role at the intersection of all stakeholders – our government customers, the venture capital community, and the startup world. It is our access to and deep understanding of these diverse communities that fuel our ability to make relevant investments. https://www.iqt.org/about-iqt/ "Start-ups" with too much money and too much national security clearance. Ha, ha! What a "diverse" community! Harrrummph! Now we need the hammer of the law to smash those greedy knuckles to a bloody pulp and syrup of ipecac to force them to disgorge their ill-gotten gains. Yes. A "privately held not-for-profit corporation." What an oxymoron! Who are the members or shareholders, and how are the proceeds of these investments disbursed to them? A non-profit needs to have a mission statement and do fundraising, and if the mission is investment, and the funds are raised from persons expecting a return on their investment, that demonstrates a profit-seeking behavior as the main raison d'e^tre of the firm, which to any reasonable person immediately disqualifies the firm as a "non-profit." Except that it's so F-in' classified that the IRS can't even audit those non-profit tax returns.
