Deep State Targets Tesla

Elon Musk: Serial Entrepreneur, and Threat to the Deep State
Just as Nicholas Tesla was targeted and destroyed
 by the Deep State when he came up with ideas and 
inventions which would improve the lives of humanity 
-- and provide free electricity and communications, 
so too is Elon Musk now being targeted since he
abhors wasteful and overly expensive inefficiencies.  
In this story line, follow the money, but recognize 
Elon Musk can, and will, dislodge the Deep State.

Business Insider, ByLine: Matthew DeBord

Elon Musk settled with the Securities and Exchange Commission [SEC] on charges filed over his abandoned attempt to take Tesla private. Musk will have to step down as the chairman of Tesla, and will be barred from that position for three years. He will remain Tesla’s CEO. The SEC charged Tesla with “failing to have required disclosure controls and procedures relating to Musk’s tweets.”  

We are curious what role Melissa Hodgman, Director of the SEC's International Divisionplayed in this bizarre attack; you might remember she is married to Peter Strzok, the corrupt, and now former Director of the FBI's Counter-Intelligence Division; her role has been to block any investigations into Hillary's money laundering operation in the Clinton Foundation.  
[Other than working with his girlfriend to undermine Trump, Strzok's notable success was in destroying the FBI's long term Operation Ghost Stories which identified and arrested a Russian SVR Sleeper Agent program by allowing the escape/release of the eleven spies arrested.]

Musk and the company will pay separate $20 million fines that will “be distributed to harmed investors under a court-approved process.   Tesla is being forced to appoint two new independent directors to its board. The company must also hire a lawyer to monitor Musk’s communications, including his tweets.

Musk's crime?

He tweeted that he was "... considering taking the company private."
He didn't, but that's irrelevant as far as the corrupt SEC is concerned.



Back in 2010, Musk's initial public offering of the Tesla stock was $17 in 2010; today, it sells for $300, a modest increase that made its investors millionaires.


[We're curious as to how investors were harmed by Tesla's chronic speculation, captured this time in an eight word tweet]

Musk is a perceived enemy of the Deep State, which derives its wealth primarily from the Transportation industry, i.e., Detroit's internal combustion industry, the oil industry, the financial industry, and the Defense and Space industry.

Musk has challenged each of the industries.
Tesla Semi; non-diesel

His electric vehicles have spawned dozens of US and international electric vehicle competitors; the only barrier seemed to be the limitations of 2,000 year old battery technology, so he created a company to make 21st Century batteries for electric vehicles, to include the Tesla Semi trucks  which could travel long distances without expensive diesel fuel costs
[currently about $150 Billion per year, which could cut into Warren Buffet's $34 Billion petroleum movement system of railroads].


The financial industry is leery of Musk because he can manufacture affordable vehicles and finance their sales through his own company at reasonable interest rates.  As opposed to Detroit's products which languish on car lots, Tesla vehicles are sold on waiting lists because demand is so great.

Automobile dealerships, a mainstay of the financial industry selling car loans of $30,000 to $150,000 at high interest rates, will gradually disappear with the dominance of electric vehicles since the need for mechanical maintenance is eliminated with electric motors which need only simple lubricants; no more expensive maintenance and overhauls of automobile drive trains consisting of thousands of moving parts [there are about 13,000 moving parts in the drive train of the average gasoline propelled car today; an electric propelled automobile has a motor with nine moving parts; do the math].  Electric vehicles will still need financing, but their mechanical and physical life spans are indefinite as the structures are now carbon-based and the motors simply don't wear out.

GM's EV-s, all in working order, were destroyed

GM figured this out in 1995 after they had created the EV-1 and EV-2, wildly popular leased vehicles - which needed no maintenance.

So, GM's Chairman, Rick Wagoner, revoked the leases, confiscated all the vehicles, and destroyed them all, not even giving one to the Smithsonian for historical purposes.

Musk's exceptional drive has produced a number of extraordinary ventures, most of which have made him, and his investors, quite wealthy.

His first venture was a software company called Zip2, which provided News Media resources with research capabilities. He sold out to Compaq Computer for $307 Million -- his share was $22 Million.

His next venture was X.com, an on-line bank which eventually became PayPal, which blind-sided the banking industry as it made transactions electronic and simple; he eventually sold the company for $250 Million.

Further down the road, he studied "rocket science" in his spare time and created SpaceX on the basis that rockets were unnecessarily overpriced.  His ventures included buying Russian rockets, developing a re-usable rocket; his reusable rockets were 100 time cheaper than those purchased under existing government contracts. He then secured a NASA contract for  $1.6 Billion to resupply the Space Station [after the Space Shuttle program was ended by Obama in 2011].  This program evolved into the BFR [Big Falcon (Fucking) Rocket] program which has evolved into the Interplanetary Space Flight program with reusable rockets.

This venture caused him a great deal of opposition since the Deep State is unwilling to give up control of the Space Industry, funded by billion dollar NASA contracts, and promoted by Trump's Space Force.

On a number of early launches, Musk's rockets inexplicably exploded on the pad or shortly after lift-off, as we would later learn via sabotage, or via snipers who could puncture a fuel tank from a mile away.  Musk and Trump solved this problem by launching from a highly restricted Military base, entry to which was only for fully identified, by-name personnel.

The Deep State has been squeezed out, for now, but will likely launch propaganda campaigns to denigrate Musk's efforts -- which promise to deliver astronauts to Mars, and the Moon in the immediate future.

Having successfully launched his Interplanetary program, Musk turned his attention again to his electric vehicles, addressing the limitations of battery life; so he built the GigaFactory, a lithium-ion battery factory in Nevada to power his vehicles and homes with solar-energy Powerwalls [a stationary home/business energy storage unit.

These ventures would undercut the battery companies, which have produced batteries which  are archaic [3,000 years old in design], expensive, and have a life span of about five years.


Cancer Transmission Systems?
They would also undercut the electric utility companies by providing consumers with an alternative to buying ever-more expensive electricity by government-protected monopolistic utilities which produce electricity and deliver it to consumers in the least efficient and highly vulnerable manner.

There is reportedly a high correlation between exposure to the Electrical Magnetic Fields [EMF] high tension power lines and cancer.  Electric utilizes have spent considerable money "debunking" these theories, but, it seems there is now pretty much of an inexplicable epidemic of cancer.

There's a considerable amount of money to be lost if Musk succeeds in creating electricity that is "off-the-grid", and naturally, the Deep State is reluctant to all the disruption of the "status quo". Expect a massive propaganda campaign to malign Musk's program.

But, lest you think Musk was slacking off, he came up with still another innovation; i.e., the Hyperloop passenger/freight train which replaces railroad trains with a high speed [700 mph], efficient, and comparatively inexpensive process.

Hyperloop Concept
The Hyperloop is a sealed tube, or system of tubes, through which a "pod" can travel without air resistance or friction -- at very high speeds.

The pods would be pressurized capsules which ride on "air bearings" driven by linear induction motors and axial compressors.

All that sounds complicated, but, think in terms of the vacuum tube system many banks still use in drive-through lanes to deliver your cash from the teller in the window.  Sixty years ago, that was the preferred system for office complexes and department stores.

This is a great idea which would provide a viable alternative to our crowded, expensive, uncomfortable, and inefficient airways   which are highly vulnerable.  Once again though, the Deep State is highly resistant to innovative technology which could slaughter their cash cows.  Railroads, though massively inefficient and slow, are basically passenger-unfriendly and highly profitable freight carriers.  Warren Buffett would be resistant, although rail would be the preferred carrier of dangerous loads of oil, coal, and explosives.

Nonetheless, opponents have already produced "studies" which call this technology impractical and vulnerable to disruption from power outages and "terror attacks".

Some may remember how the high-speed MagLev trains conceived in the 1980s were derailed in the US by Deep State nay-sayers to protect the airlines and rail monopolies -- but those constructed in foreign countries work just fine, until mysterious accidents caused them to shut down.

Musk's Tunnel Boring Machine
The question arose on how the HyperLoop would move through non-existent paths.

Naturally, Musk had an answer - his Boring Machine Company, which produces machines capable of boring tunnels through any material [e.g., rock]  at 50-60 feet per day, with a diameter up to nearly 60 feet.

Currently, Musk has a variety of tentative contracts for boring his tunnels, into which he can insert his Hyperloop trains; since these might cause the disruption and obsolescence of existing transportation systems, we can guarantee a great deal of political opposition to arise from Deep State functionaries.

Stay tuned for more adventures of Elon Musk, the man from the future.

China's "Social Credit System" - A Copy of the US?



We're reprinting this article as it captures the essence of China's new mass surveillance system, which couples with a mind and behavior control process of rewards and punishments imposed by the government, based on the citizens' behavior. 

Generally, we'd simply point to this as the extremism inherent in China, but, in reality, we're seeing such a mechanism in the US as our  Social Media has now become a censorship mechanism, not unlike China's Gamification of Trust. If you "violate" the vague, yet comprehensive Terms of Agreement of Facebook, Twitter, Google, etc., they will shut you down and ban you for a week, a month, or forever, particularly if you take a dynamic Conservative position.

Unless Congress and the President step in to force these IT giants to honor the First Amendment, the concept of Freedom of Speech will be lost forever, and the core of the United States will be lost forever.

Keep in mind that, under the successive Administrations of Bush-1, Clinton, Bush-2, and Obama, [the foursome comprising the embodiment of the Deep State Puppetry], a series of Executive Orders [EO] were enacted, using 9/11 as the excuse to protect America from terrorists.  These incrementally restricted the rights of American citizens and were capped by the Patriot Act and the NDAA, which stripped the Constitutional Rights of citizens suspected of any linkage to TERRORISM, no matter how spurious or specious the accusations.  The counter-terrorism excuse was used to authorize NSA surveillance on US citizens, as well as introducing Secret Letters, Confiscation of personal property, warrantless searches, and sanctioned torture of prisoners of war.

These EOs and legislation were supplemented and enforced by the expansion and weaponization of our Intelligence and Law Enforcement Communities and the creation of new agencies [e.g., Homeland Security] which morphed into massive bureaucracies with no visible purpose other than to harass and control citizens to force them into total compliance.


Ultimately, we have witnessed the systematic deadly assault, physical and ad hominem, against our Legislators, our Cabinet members, our Supreme Court nominees, and our President [notably the attempted assassination of Representative Scalise, the physical assault of Senator Paul, and, last but not least, the derailing of Congressional train in Virginia designed to kill both our legislators and their families and cause the collapse of Congress.]   Our News and Social Media have been purchased and controlled by Left Wing billionaires, and our journalists have been replaced by propagandists.

Although few will recognize the symptoms and indicators, we are in the last stages of a fight for the very existence of our Republic; and we may very well succumb to the Chinese model described below if we lose.

 China's 'Social Credit System' Has now been switched on, 
and is straight out of Dystopian Sci-Fi

China's "Social Credit System" is a sprawling, complete, technological mass surveillance network. It's already been switched on and is expected to be fully operational by 2020.

It monitors China's nearly 1.4 billion citizens, and it's also designed to control and coerce them in a massive social engineering process some have called the "gamification of trust" in which the system assigns an individual Trust Score to each citizen as well as to businesses.

The Chinese Communist system will, according to the Chinese government
"allow the trustworthy to roam freely under heaven while making it hard for the discredited to take a single step".

This scheme will harness the immense reach of China's technological infrastructure which includes 200 million CCTV cameras. This 24/7 surveillance will be linked to facial recognition systems, and cross-checked with financial, medical records, and legal records – with the whole apparatus regulated and interpreted by advanced, data-crunching AI [artificial intelligence] networks.

[Ed Note: This ties to the interlocking companies in the US in which Medical, Financial, Legal, Personnel, and Security files are accessible by one major company which owns the subsidiaries operating in a different name.]

The scope of this venture is reminiscent of the TV show Black Mirror [i.e., the eerily prescient episode "Nosedive" which depicts a world where people can rate each other from one to five stars for every interaction they have, and which can impact their socioeconomic status].  China's goal goes even further.

Algorithmic Governance will rule your life

"This is potentially a totally new way for the government to manage the economy and society," according to economist Martin Chorzempa from the Peterson Institute for International Economics. 

The goal is algorithmic governance!"
[Think in terms of a computer managing your life, as in HAL, the computer in 2001, Space Oddysey.

For such a complex plan, the crux of social credit is simple.

In localised pilot programs currently operational in Chinese cities, citizens are assigned a numerical score. For positive personal and social acts – such as paying bills on time, engaging in charity, and properly sorting your recycling – citizens get their score bumped up, which gives them access to perks, like better credit facilities, cheaper public transport, and even shorter wait times for hospital services.  [Ed Note: Not unlike the impact of your FICO score.]

But if you break the rules, beware. People with late with payments, caught jaywalking or smoking in non-smoking areas, will be punished.

In what's being described as a "digital dictatorship", their score takes a hit for each infraction, meaning they incur things like financial penalties and even travel restrictions.

That's what happened to investigative journalist Liu Hu, who says the social credit system destroyed his career after he was blacklisted for making accusations of government corruption. Branded "dishonest", he had access to rail travel suspended, and his social media accounts – comprising some 2 million followers – were reportedly shut down, effectively making his job impossible.
[Ed Note: We now note US airline computers will unilaterally cancel your reservations if you are categorized as "non-compliant".]

As Hu told Foreign Correspondent, he doesn't believe most Chinese are aware of how these kinds of punishments could affect them. "You can see from the Chinese people's mental state.  Their eyes are blinded and their ears are blocked. They know little about the world and live in an illusion." 

But the social credit system reaches even further than this.
Individuals aren't the only ones subject to this ramification.

Companies within and outside China are affected, with international airlines already feeling the coercive aspects of the controversial system, which could "interfere directly in the sovereignty of other nations".

Social surveys show the preliminary system is popular with socially advantaged citizens who already enjoy the perks of pilot programs.

"It sounds like it will help improve the quality of citizens in the long run," Shanghai-based saleswoman Joyce Hu told NPR last year.

"As long as it doesn't violate my privacy, I'm okay with it."

-----------

Editor's Note:


We are reminded of China's Cultural Revolution [1966-76] during which the Red Guard brutally controlled/suppressed "free speech" by having children report on their parents, students report on each other and on their teachers, and even on farm workers who reported on each other's work habits.   Penalties for violations included imprisonment, and execution. 

This was the ultimate thought and mind control, much like the insinuation and imposition of Political Correctness and the violent "demonstrations" of the Left on campuses and the destruction of historical monuments in the US.  A side effect consisted of the destruction of much of China's recorded history as books and documents were destroyed, much like the systematic erasure of historical material on Google searches.




We are, naturally appalled at China's intrusion on the privacy of their citizens, yet we tend to forget NSA'S harvesting of thousands of Terabytes [Zettabytes], encompassing virtually every email, text, and phone conversation of every US citizen. 

As we've noted, our DHS and DOJ, under Obama, did not hesitate to use the information gathered against those designated political 'enemies' of the Deep State.  

State surveillance and suppression in the US far outweighed that in China; we just didn't notice it.

Judge Kavanaugh Confirmation Debacle

Judge Brett Kavanaugh -  Supreme Court Nominee


This is an analysis from a FB friend 
which deserves broad viewership. 
It is a succinct and lucid summary 
of the Judge Kavanaugh Senate 
hearings and issues.

Facts:

1)  Six FBI background checks over 25 years:
     No Negatives found.
2) 1,325 written questions from US Senators:
    No Negative Comments
3) 65 meetings with US Senators:
    The allegations were never mentioned
4) 32 hours of public hearings:
     No mention of the allegations
5) In US Senate Judiciary Committee Executive session:
    No reference to the allegations
Booker: aka: Spartacus 
6) Senator Cory Booker
     Made no mention the allegations
7)  At the time of this post [18SEP2918], the accuser continued to refuse to appear before the Senate Committee.
     -- No other witnesses will be allowed to appear before the Committee.

8)  The Washington Post published a hit piece mentioning a single, uncorroborated, allegation from 36 years ago, during Kavanaugh's high school days, and the Senate Committee must now delay or defeat Judge Kavanagh's nomination to the Senate for confirmation to the Supreme Court.

9)  Click here for Kavanaugh's biography

This is a disgraceful, partisan debasement of the 
US Senate and the confirmation process, and the 
fact that it was held until the eleventh-hour is 
suspicious, at best, and nefarious at worst!

To clarify, here is the Democrats timeline:

Senator Feinstein
• Dianne Feinstein, a Senior Democrat member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, had a written statement in her possession from a woman accusing Kavanaugh of misconduct when they were both teenagers, weeks before Kavanaugh ever came before Congress for hearings.

• Feinstein did not turn the letter over to the FBI, which would then have had the authority to discretely interview those involved and assess the allegation's legal ramifications for a public figure.

• Feinstein (and other Senate Dems who presumably knew about the letter) did not ask Kavanaugh about the allegations they knew had been made against him during the hundreds of hours of closed and open testimony and thousands of submitted questions.

• Feinstein held the letter until Kavanaugh's hearing was concluded and a vote for him was all-but-sure to pass nomination, and then first mentioned the letter during a press release to reporters - where the case would be litigated in the public arena, and not within the halls of investigative or deliberative bodies whose job it is to assess these claims.

• Because Kavanaugh was never asked about the accusations or his relationship with the accuser in days of questioning by the Senate, the Judge presumably had no idea what the allegations even were.
   a) The accusations lack a time, place, and circumstances
   b) making them all but impossible for Kavanaugh's defense
   c) Such accusations would never be admissible in a court of law!

Senator Grassley
• Feinstein did not cooperate with Republicans in setting up follow-up calls with the Kavanaugh accuser who accuser continues to ignore requests from Senator Grassley for a hearing.

• Feinstein and Senate Democrats refused to speak with Kavanaugh and the Senate Judiciary staff Monday after the accuser had gone public and Kavanaugh had forcibly denied the allegations.

The accuser's lawyer says it is not her client’s job to corroborate her claims against Kavanaugh
[a normal process in a court of law]

Every legitimate accuser should be  heard -- after investigation and verification;  and such cases should be  litigated to the fullest extent. However, the way Democrats have handled this claim has in no way benefitted the accuser, accused, or the greater Me Too movement.  
A court would throw out such an accusation for lack of evidence as well as the fact that the event allegedly occurred 36 years prior. The fact that the accuser is linked to the Hillary campaign and to the Steele bogus accusation degrades the accuser and the accusation. 

It smacks of political weaponization!



EDITORIAL NOTE:
Who is the accuser?
Christine: Now  --                                           36 Years Ago

Here's a summary
Judge Kavanaugh's Accuser

Notably, Christine Blasey's brother, Ralph III, worked for Baker Hostetler, the Fusion GPS law firm, for 15 years.

She is affiliated with Indivisible, an Alinsky-style Anti-Trump "Resistance Group" in Silicon Valley [their Facebook page has now been taken down].

Katz






According to Michael Collesano, her lawyer, Debra Katz, a defender of Bill Clinton's assaults on women, to include Paula Jones ["a 'one-time' incident"] is a board member of POGO, a Soros-funded organization.  She is currently representing Irwin Reiter [a Harvey Weinstein company executive]
