“Elon Musk is a criminal and a racketeer”
Op-Ed- By Lee Van Steiner
If you hear that phrase and you suddenly turn your brain off and think to yourself: “I don’t want to hear that because either; A. I bought into Musk’s hype and now I feel stupid or; B. the mainstream media told me that Musk is someone I should worship and it makes me feel stupid to find out he was a sham…” or both, then get over it.
A bunch of media hype told the public that Al Capone, Bernie Madoff and Enron were cool before the truth came out. Live and learn.
The Wall Street Journal just said: “Tesla is a soft budget constraint company in two ways. It gets plenty of revenue indirectly as result of government policy (consumer tax rebates, fuel mileage credits, HOV permits), not to mention directly in the form of loan guarantees, corporate tax abatements, etc.
But Tesla also gets considerable funding from repeated sales of stock to the public. Though its Wall Street cheerleaders don’t emphasize its dependence on political favoritism, Tesla’s own disclosures are required to be more candid. Keeping investors giddy about Tesla’s prospects therefore implicitly means reassuring them that Tesla will continue to attract the political patronage that has sustained it so far.”
This means, in normal language that Musk is running a scam and he is using the taxpayers hard-earned money to operate his shell game.
“With enough government handouts, a car company never has to break even” Says the Wall Street Journal.
This means that Musk and his Silicon Valley Mobsters are running a Bernie Madoff-style ponzi scheme where they bribe politicians, get huge government hand-outs, use those hand-outs to pump the stock market with fake valuations, skim those sudden stock perks and then do it all over again. Wash-Rinse-Repeat; except their dirty laundry just keeps getting dirtier.
Elon Musk is an absolute crime-ster who pays PR agencies to post self-aggrandizing glory Op-Eds about himself in every major city in the world and on Twitter, Google and Facebook around the clock.
As his rockets and cars explode into flames over-and-over, and volumes of evidence against him pile up, it is hard to imagine that anyone but the utterly clue-less could still think Musk is not an epic crook.
He is the wolf in sheep’s clothing. He is a felon. The FBI, SEC, FTC, and most major regulators, have received hard copies of this fact for many years. When will they commit to the arrest of Musk? Probably when we finally get a new President whose West Wing is no longer running cover for Musk’s crimes, dirty overseas mining deals, “donations”/bribes and market rigging!
