Rumors That Elon Musk Tortured and Killed 23 Monkeys During Testing Of Brain Chip Implants Aimed At Humans

Ok folks, this is a wild one.

Elon Musk a polarizing figure.

I know half of you love him and half of you don’t trust him farther than you could throw him.

I come down somewhere in the middle….

I find him endlessly fascinating and I want to believe he’s a white hat, but I understand his links to Space (fake?) to Green Energy (hello AOC!) to mind control chips (hello Revelation!) and so many more things make him questionable.

I will also say this: don’t hate on a Tesla until you’ve driven one.

Put simply: they are incredible!

So I’m not one of these people that hates on all Tesla owners.

Sorry folks, can’t do it.

Driving a Tesla is a FUN experience.

No, I don’t think I’m saving the world driving one but I also am not going to say anyone who drives a Tesla is evil.

So that’s where I come down on Musk.

But our mission here at WeLoveTrump has always been to print the truth.

Since Day 1, that’s our primary driving force.

So whether I like or dislike Elon Musk, I have to print this story.

And the story is extremely troubling.

Here’s the essence of it:

Many people are claiming, and it appears to be nearly confirmed, that Elon Musk’s Neuralink company has “tortured and killed” at least 23 monkeys in their efforts to place a computer chip in the brain.

Take a look:

If you know me at all, you know I am probably not aligned much, if at all, with PETA.

I’m not an PETA freak.

I love HUMANS over Animals.

Yeah, I said it.

But I’m not heartless.

I don’t want to see animals suffer….who would?

So this story does trouble me.

People are suing to have the pictures of the tortured animals released:

From DailyClout:

While Elon Musk’s brain-tech company Neuralink may have left its days of conducting painful experiments on monkeys in taxpayer-funded facilities well behind it, its animal research program is now in-house. A lofty animal welfare statement sits at the top of the company’s blog, and a few rounds of PR showing how enriching Neuralink facilities are for pigs and monkeys seems to distract from the fact that these animals’ brains will soon have electrodes implanted in them.

All of this has been paving the way to developing a brain-machine interface that Neuralink claims would help people suffering from paralysis regain independence. The research started in 2017 and was initially conducted at the California National Primate Research Center (CNPRC) at UC Davis and paid for by Neuralink.

Last year, a public records request– resulting in the disclosure of 600 pages of documents– was followed by a legal complaint alleging eight violations of the Animal Welfare Act. The documents detailed the procedure wherein portions of monkeys’ skulls were removed and electrodes inserted, as well as other varying circumstances that resulted in the deaths of 15 monkeys.

Photo and video records of the research were not disclosed and an ongoing public records lawsuit aims to compel their release to keep this research from being swept under the rug (and scrubbed from Neuralink’s history). In May of 2021, doctor’s group Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) sued UC Davis for refusing to release the photo and video records.

Last week, the firm representing UC Davis responded to a request for a Vaughn Index (a legal document describing withheld records and grounds for non-disclosure). I was provided a copy of this Index from PCRM. The Index outlines two sets of photos related to the Neuralink/CNPRC research.

The first set of 185 photos pertains to necropsy (autopsy) reports. They are used to assist pathologists in preparing said reports, and to “inform future research and clinical practices.” The Index also indicates that they are the photographic equivalent to note-taking and are not intended for public disclosure.

Among the reasons for non-disclosure of this set are concerns that without the contextual facts, the photos would be misinterpreted by the public. This implies that any objections to the content of the images would be misinformed and out of context. To the contrary, it’s possible (and legitimate) that the public would ingest the images with proper context and still have objections. PCRM research advocacy director Ryan Merkley puts it this way: “UC Davis thinks the public is too stupid to know what they’re looking at.”

Additionally, the Index argues that due to the graphic nature of the photos, their release could result in harassment of the researchers involved in the project– this risk alone would have a “chilling effect on future research.” The Index says:

“The interest in protecting the safety of public employees and ensuring research that benefits the public can proceed without risk of violence clearly outweighs the public’s interest in viewing said photographs.”

In this case, the public’s interest in seeing the photos would be transparency into the activities performed by a taxpayer-funded institute. Further downstream, an informed electorate could engage with lawmakers to enact changes to the functions performed by institutes funded by their tax dollars. But the public cannot make this calculation in the dark.

The ‘risk of violence’ rationale on its face contains an uncomfortable admission: that the activities this research involved were deleterious enough to potentially result in violence and harassment. No serious, ethical person would endorse violent backlash against CNPRC or Neuralink lab workers. But the refusal to release the images speaks volumes. If the public requested images of an innocuous activity, such as a custodian mopping the floors of CNPRC, there would be no secrecy or litigation. Similarly, Neuralink conspicuously publishes images and videos of monkeys and pigs playing in their childlike enclosures, but nothing of the surgical procedure for which the animals are confined at Neuralink to begin with.

The second set of 186 images pertains to the actual research conducted on monkeys for Neuralink. Revealed in the written records of this research were details of infections, seizures, distress, and the harmful and hazardous misuse of a product called BioGlue (see page 4 here), which caused bleeding in one monkey’s brain and vomiting to the point of developing open sores in her esophagus.

In addition, these photos are of particular interest in constructing a fuller picture of what the primates endured. However, the Index notes that these images are “proprietary,” depicting research that was done using Neuralink “proprietary devices,” and are therefore the property of Neuralink. Moreover, the Index argues that “there would be a chilling impact on public-private partnerships if a private company’s proprietary, protected research was subject to disclosure simply by virtue of its relationship with a public institution.”

This is extremely troubling.


From MSN:

In a press release, the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) advocacy group said that it had learned that the University of California, Davis is in possession of 371 photos of the experimented-upon monkeys that were subjected to Neuralink tests, which took place at the school’s veterinary lab facilities.

Earlier this year, Neuralink admitted that a fifth of the 23 rhesus macaques monkeys it used to test its brain-hacking implants had been euthanized after developing infections and malfunctions. Bolstering PCRM’s credibility, that admission came in the wake of its a complaint it filed against Neuralink.

Now, PCRM says it learned that UC Davis is in possession of the hundreds of photos depicting, among other things, “necropsies of animals killed” in the experiments after filing a lawsuit against the school in February over its shielding of the photos, which the university argues are “proprietary.”

“UC Davis thinks the public is too stupid to know what they’re looking at,” Physicians Committee research director Ryan Merkley said in the press release. “But it’s clear the university is simply trying to hide from taxpayers the fact that it partnered with Elon Musk to conduct experiments in which animals suffered and died.”

And from YahooNews:

The post “Extreme Suffering”: 15 of 23 Monkeys with Elon Musk’s Neuralink Brain Chips Reportedly Died appeared first on Consequence.

Out of a total of 23 monkeys implanted with Elon Musk’s Neuralink brain chips at the University of California Davis between 2017 and 2020, at least 15 reportedly died.

Via Business Insider and the New York Post, the news comes from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, an animal-rights group that viewed over 700 pages of documents, veterinary records, and necropsy reports through a public records request at the university.

Neuralink was founded in 2016 with a goal of helping people recover from traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries, curing depression and other mental health disorders, and connecting humans to the internet for everything from music streaming to near-telepathic communication. The company has often touted its successes, such as a demonstration on a pig in 2020, and a 2021 video of a macaque playing Pong with its mind.

The project has attracted a great deal of interest from celebrities like Grimes and Lil Uzi Vert, and people suffering from paralysis often petition Musk on social media to be a part of human trials. Musk previously said that he hoped to begin human trials in 2021, but that goal has been pushed back to 2022. Based on the PCRM’s findings, the brain chips may be nowhere near ready.

“Pretty much every single monkey that had had implants put in their head suffered from pretty debilitating health effects,” said the PCRM’s research advocacy director Jeremy Beckham. “They were, frankly, maiming and killing the animals.”

Neuralink chips were implanted by drilling holes into the monkeys’ skulls. One primate developed a bloody skin infection and had to be euthanized. Another was discovered missing fingers and toes, “possibly from self-mutilation or some other unspecified trauma,” and had to be put down. A third began uncontrollably vomiting shortly after surgery, and days later “appeared to collapse from exhaustion/fatigue.” An autopsy revealed the animal suffered from a brain hemorrhage.

And one more….

This from the NY Post:

Neuralink’s brain chips — which Musk claims will one day make humans hyper-intelligent and let paralyzed people walk again — were implanted in monkeys’ brains during a series of tests at the University of California, Davis from 2017 to 2020, according to a compliant from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine filed with the the US Department of Agriculture on Thursday.

In one example, a monkey was allegedly found missing some of its fingers and toes “possibly from self-mutilation or some other unspecified trauma.” The monkey was later killed during a “terminal procedure,” the group said in a copy of the complaint shared with The Post.

In another case, a monkey had holes drilled in its skull and electrodes implanted into its brain, then allegedly developed a bloody skin infection and had to be euthanized, according to the complaint.

In a third instance, a female macaque monkey had electrodes implanted into its brain, then was overcome with vomiting, retching and gasping. Days later, researchers wrote that the animal “appeared to collapse from exhaustion/fatigue” and was subsequently euthanized. An autopsy then showed the monkey had suffered from a brain hemorrhage, according to the report.

The experiments involved 23 monkeys in all. At least 15 of them died or were euthanized by 2020, according to the group, which based the report on records released through California’s open records law.

“Pretty much every single monkey that had had implants put in their head suffered from pretty debilitating health effects,” Jeremy Beckham, the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine’s research advocacy director, told The Post. “They were, frankly, maiming and killing the animals.”

The macabre report comes as Neuralink plans to begin its first human tests. Musk said in December that he wants to start human trials for the devices in 2022 and the company posted a job listing for a clinical trial director this January.

The group behind the report, the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, advocates for veganism and alternatives to animal testing — positions that have sometimes put the group at odds with the American Medical Association. It has also previously received funding from controversial animal rights group PETA, The Guardian reported.

The group doesn’t currently have “any relationship with PETA” but sometimes works on overlapping issues, Beckham said.

The organization is accusing Neuralink and UC Davis of nine violations of the federal Animal Welfare Act — a federal measure designed to reduce suffering during animal experiments.

“Many, if not all, of the monkeys experienced extreme suffering as a result of inadequate animal care and the highly invasive experimental head implants during the experiments, which were performed in pursuit of developing what Neuralink and Elon Musk have publicly described as a ‘brain-machine interface,’” the group wrote in its complaint to the USDA.

“These highly invasive implants and their associated hardware, which are inserted in the brain after drilling holes in the animals’ skulls, have produced recurring infections in the animals, significantly compromising their health, as well as the integrity of the research.”


The group is also suing UC Davis in an attempt to make them release more photos, videos and information about the monkeys under California’s public records laws.

The alleged abuses come in stark contrast to publicly shared materials from Neuralink. In a video posted on YouTube last April, the company showed a healthy and happy-seeming monkey playing the video game Pong with its brain.

So….what do you think?

Elon was also in the news recently related to Rumble….

Would you like to see Elon team up with the free speech alternative?

Again…white hat or bad guy?

Hard to tell.

Elon Musk To Rumble: “Let’s Talk”

Well, this is certainly interesting!

Yesterday, we brought you the news that Russell Brand was struck down by YouTube.


Given a strike.

Details here:

MAX CENSORSHIP: YouTube Just Struck Down Russell Brand!

Of course, YouTube can’t really say what he did wrong and it’s just a big coincidence that the strike appears right before he launches a new show on Rumble.

Why is YouTube so scared?

And here’s the irony of it all…

If YouTube had simply allowed free speech and not started banning everyone, they’d still have a monopoly and Rumble would not even exist!

Go back and read that last sentence again, it’s 100% true!

They shot themselves in their own foot.

But now I want to advance the story because this is where it gets really interesting.

Is Elon Musk about to enter the scene?

He’s already in the process of buying Twitter (which I’ve been on record as saying still goes through and you’re currently just witnessing a big show in the meantime)…

And while he’s messing with Twitter is he about to get into the YouTube/Rumble brawl too?


Let me bring you up to speed…

So it starts with Russell Brand’s tweet below making the announcement he’s been censored:

Fine, we’ve all seen that.

But then it gets really interesting.

Elon slides into RB’s replies and posts this:

It’s always fascinating when Elon just drops into a conversation, and he does it a lot.

So then Dan Bongino jumps in replying to Elon and saying Elon should team up with Rumble:

Elon actually replied!

But it was pretty disappointed.

We’ve all experienced a “blow off” reply, and that’s what Dan got here:

But it didn’t end there.

Then Chris Pavovski, the founder of Rumble jumps into the conversation!

He tells Elon he was at SpaceX 12 years ago and he wants to team up:

Elon replies again and this time it’s more open:

That is where it stands as of press time for this article.

So…where will this go?

We need free speech on ALL platforms.

I saw a great post the other day that I really loved.

It said:  BAN Banning.

Perfectly said.

Stop banning people.

Let people talk.

Stop removing them from all platforms just because you don’t like one thing they said.

If they have a bad idea, let the marketplace tell them that.

Let the idea be vetted by millions of voices and let the good ones rise to the top and the bad ones sink.

That’s how America was founded.

Why are these freaks — the so-called “Elites” — suddenly so paranoid about people being able to speak freely?

The million dollar question…

Performing medical testing and experiments on monkeys have gone on for years. But let’s ask a relevant question-Why is it okay to rip little people’s arm and legs off of and kill them while they are in the womb because they are an inconvenience to the mother. Their parts harvested and sold –I seem to think that that is a more pressing issue than monkey experiments.

Animal testing goes on continuously, everywhere, all the time. Not to say I agree with it but…, this is a non-story.
