U.S. Department of Transportation Charged With Corruption Over Tesla Cover-Ups

U.S. Department of Transportation Charged With Corruption Over Tesla Cover-Ups

 

 

BY Conrad Lester For The New York Times submissions

 

 

 

Over a hundred parties have offered evidence and testimony to the the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) about Tesla Motors safety defects but have gotten ignored, blown-off and stone-walled. Many think that this is because Tesla is a major campaign financier of the Obama administration.

 

 

When DOT NHTSA director Erick Strickland was told, in writing, that it was known that he was running safety cover-ups in order to protect campaign financier Elon Musk and Tesla Motors, Strickland suddenly quit as head of the NHTSA 48 hours later.

 

 

Tesla Motors has had more crashes, deaths and reported safety defects than any other U.S. car per volume yet the DOT avoids taking any action because the White House orders DOT to ignore any issues with campaign financiers.

 

 

Tesla’s partner, major stock co-owner, sleep-over buddies and campaign co-financier s billionaire’s Eric Schmidt and Larry Page at Google are set to get billions of dollars of U.S. taxpayer dollars as a give-away in exchange for rigging election perceptions with Google. What are they getting the no-questions-asked money for? Driverless Google Cars that nobody wants and that have already been involved in a number of crashes.

 

 

The Department of Transportation, under the Obama Administration has emulated the corruption reign of terror that Steven Chu operated at the U.S. Department of Energy, also for the Obama Administration. In order to nip the DOE corruption in the bud, one must examine the history of DOT’s mirror image operation at DOE. The following articles provide a great over-view of how the scam was run by Chu and his crony’s:

The testimony from witnesses stone-walled by DOT in order to protect Tesla along with the following books and references show that DOT is long over-due for an FBI raid:
