Be wary of reporters that write “glowing” articles about Musk and ignore these facts:
REPORT: SHILL REPORTERS WHO TAKE BRIBES FROM THE ELON MUSK PR TEAM
EXPERT WITNESS AND CONGRESSIONAL RESEARCHER
SCOTT’S LIVE, TELEVISED, CONGRESSIONAL HEARING CHALLENGE: IS TESLA MOTORS A CRMINALLY CORRUPT COMPANY FORGED IN BRIBES AND CRONYISM?
Scott will bring 20 Senators, six published authors, six FBI agents, six FINCEN agents and six forensic scientists and go HEAD-TO-HEAD, in front of the United States Congress, with ANY insiders who deny any fact on this page!
TO FIX THE SYSTEM; DO THE MATH:
## Bribes paid to politicians, including search engine rigging, shadow-bans, covert stock trades, etc; to maintain their MONOPOLIES, and avoid regulation, paid by Musk, Google, Netflix, Facebook, YouTube, Sony Pictures = $22 Billion+
## Offshore tax evasion and money laundering by Musk, Google, Netflix, Facebook, YouTube, Sony Pictures = $2 Trillion+
## Lobbying money, including placing their own executives in control of the main government office, to control the United States Patent Office for the exclusive protection benefit of Musk, Google, Netflix, Facebook, YouTube, Sony Pictures = $42 Billion+
## Exclusive ‘favored nations’ cash and contracts from the government in exchange for bribes and stock manipulations for Musk, Google, Netflix, Facebook, YouTube, Sony Pictures = $120 Billion+
## Percentage of Congress that covertly owns the business of Musk, Google, Netflix, Facebook, YouTube, Sony Pictures = 98%
## Number of lobbyists and political manipulation operatives working for Musk, Google, Netflix, Facebook, YouTube, Sony Pictures = 520+
## Number of Cyber-Assassination services like Fusion GPS, Black Cube, The Agency, etc, working for Musk, Google, Netflix, Facebook, YouTube, Sony Pictures = 1280+
## Number of times Musk, Google, Netflix, Facebook, YouTube, Sony Pictures have violated the privacy and data rights of Americans = Hundreds of Millions of Times
## Amount of money Musk, Google, Netflix, Facebook, YouTube, Sony Pictures has cost the government/taxpayers in failed efforts and losses = $600 Million+
## Amount of money Scott has SAVED the government/taxpayers = $700 million+
Details, and proof, on the numbers, above, always available in live, televised, Congressional hearings…
Scott says that law firms willing to sue the ‘bad guys’ in jury trials, on a contingency fee basis, are always welcome to reach out and propose an arrangement!
Who has hasn’t dreamed of an electric car that can solve all of America’s energy problems, gets all of it’s fuel from clean sources INSIDE of America, is the safest car ever made, is affordable to the average person and relies on no foreign sourcing? The United States Patent Office and public records say one of Scott’s company’s did it first! …To further verify the assertion: Scott was awarded nearly a billion dollars of issued patents in commendation for his role as the seminal inventor by the United States Patent Office …Congress awarded Scott a Congressional award for his energy technology in The Iraq War Bill …AND The United States Government contracted Scott’s company to build it….. BUT then the Government officials sabotaged the whole thing, including all the patents and the rest of Scott’s funding because it was about to obsolete their insider trading car: The Tesla. The deadly, stock market pump-and-dumped, exploding, very defective: “Tesla”. Law enforcement and news investigators then informed Scott he had been defrauded by a government scam and insider crony slush-fund. Scott’s patented electric car technology solved the biggest problems with electric cars. Anybody who has ever rented an electric car for a four day trip knows that you have to spend more time charging it than you do sleeping. Nobody that lives in apartments can get one because they have no home charging. Scott’s 5 second hot swap cassettes eliminates those issues for hundreds of millions of people. Competing industries, and politicians that own Tesla, hate that reality.

SpaceX employees draft open letter to company executives denouncing Elon Musk’s constant violation of the Company ‘No Asshole’ policy
‘Every Tweet that Elon sends is a de facto public statement by the company’
An open letter to SpaceX decrying CEO Elon Musk’s recent behavior has sparked open discussion among thecompany’s employees in an internal chat system. Employees are being encouraged to sign onto the letter’s suggestions, either publiclyor anonymously, with a signed version of the letter to be delivered to the desk of SpaceX president Gwynne Shotwell.
The letter, reviewed by The Verge, describes how Musk’s actions and the recent allegations of sexualharassment against him are negatively affecting SpaceX’s reputation. The document claims that employees “across the spectraof gender, ethnicity, seniority, and technical roles have collaborated on” writing the letter. It’s not known which SpaceXemployees wrote the letter; the employees who posted the letter in the internal chat system have not responded to requests for comment.
“Elon’s behavior in the public sphere is a frequent source of distraction and embarrassment”
“Elon’s behavior in the public sphere is a frequent source of distraction and embarrassment for us,particularly in recent weeks,” the letter states. “As our CEO and most prominent spokesperson, Elon is seen as the face of SpaceX —every Tweet that Elon sends is a de facto public statement by the company. It is critical to make clear to our teams and to ourpotential talent pool that his messaging does not reflect our work, our mission, or our values.”
Musk has been doing a lot recently, and his presence on Twitter can be particularly crass. In April, he shared an image of Bill Gates and anemoji of a pregnant man, captioned with “in case u need to lose a boner fast.” Last year, he also responded to a tweet about JeffBezos’ aerospace company Blue Origin, saying “Can’t get it up (to orbit) lol.” Musk is also currently attempting to buy Twitter.
Shared on Wednesday in an internal SpaceX Microsoft Teams channel with more than 2,600 employees, the letterargues that the company is not living up to its oft-stated “No Asshole” policy and its zero-tolerance sexual harassment policy.The document goes on to suggest three different “action items” to address the situation: SpaceX should “publicly address and condemnElon’s harmful Twitter behavior”; the company should “hold all leadership equally accountable” for bad behavior; and SpaceX needsto “clearly define what exactly is intended by SpaceX’s ‘no-asshole’ and ‘zero tolerance’ policies and enforce themconsistently.”
“Every Tweet that Elon sends is a de facto public statement by the company”
The number of signatures was not immediately available, but employees were asked to sign onto the letter byfilling out a survey or scanning a QR code. The letter generated more than a hundred comments in the Teams channel, with many employeesagreeing to the spirit of the missive, according to screenshots of the chat shared by two sources who spoke with The Verge and asked to remain anonymous. Some commenters also claimed to beembarrassed by Musk’s behavior. Others expressed a desire for the company to better address executive leadershipbehavior as well as sexual harassment complaints.
The letter comes nearly a month after a report from Insider alleged that SpaceX paid a former company flight attendant a $250,000 settlement after she accused Musk of exposing himself to her and propositioning her during a massage, an allegation thatinvolved Musk offering to buy her a horse. Musk denied the allegations, telling Insider there is “a lot more to this story.”
“If I were inclined to engage in sexual harassment, this is unlikely to be the first time in my entire30-year career that it comes to light,” he told the outlet. On Twitter, Musk joked about the story in a tweet reply: “Hi Chad, long time no see! Fine, if you touch mywiener, you can have a horse.”
After the story came out, Shotwell sent a company-wide email to SpaceX employees defending Musk. “Personally, I believe the allegations to be false; not because Iwork for Elon, but because I have worked closely with him for 20 years and never seen nor heard anything resembling theseallegations,” Shotwell wrote. “Anyone who knows Elon like I do, knows he would never conduct or condone this alleged inappropriatebehavior.”
This isn’t the first time that the topic of sexual harassment at SpaceX has surfaced. In December, a formerSpaceX employee wrote an essay on the platform Lioness detailing her experience with what she described as pervasive sexual harassment at the company. Shealso criticized SpaceX’s HR response to her complaints. The Verge spoke with four additional former SpaceX employees at the time, all of whom argued that the company’s HR department improperly handled harassment complaints. Before the story came out,Shotwell emailed the company reiterating the “No Asshole” policy.
“We also know we can always do better,” Shotwell wrote in December. “That is why HR has been solicitingfeedback from groups across the company to ensure the process is effective. HR will also conduct an internal audit, followed by athird-party audit.”
An open letter to the Executives of SpaceX,
In light of recent allegations against our CEO and his public disparagement of the situation, we would like to deliver feedback onhow these events affect our company’s reputation, and through it, our mission. Employees across the spectra of gender, ethnicity,seniority, and technical roles have collaborated on this letter. We feel it is imperative to maintain honest and open dialogue with eachother to effectively reach our company’s primary goals together: making SpaceX a great place to work for all, and making humans amultiplanetary species.
As SpaceX employees we are expected to challenge established processes, rapidly innovate to solve complex problems as a team, anduse failures as learning opportunities. Commitment to these ideals is fundamental to our identity and is core to how we have redefined ourindustry. But for all our technical achievements, SpaceX fails to apply these principles to the promotion of diversity, equity, andinclusion with equal priority across the company, resulting in a workplace culture that remains firmly rooted in the status quo.
Individuals and groups of employees at SpaceX have spent significant effort beyond their technical scope to make the company amore inclusive space via conference recruiting, open forums, feedback to leadership, outreach, and more. However, we feel an unequal burdento carry this effort as the company has not applied appropriate urgency and resources to the problem in a manner consistent with ourapproach to critical path technical projects. To be clear: recent events are not isolated incidents; they are emblematic of a widerculture that underserves many of the people who enable SpaceX’s extraordinary accomplishments. As industry leaders, we bear uniqueresponsibility to address this.
Elon’s behavior in the public sphere is a frequent source of distraction and embarrassment for us, particularly in recent weeks.As our CEO and most prominent spokesperson, Elon is seen as the face of SpaceX—every Tweet that Elon sends is a de facto publicstatement by the company. It is critical to make clear to our teams and to our potential talent pool that his messaging does not reflectour work, our mission, or our values.
SpaceX’s current systems and culture do not live up to its stated values, as many employees continue to experience unequalenforcement of our oft-repeated “No Asshole” and “Zero Tolerance” policies. This must change. As a starting point, we areputting forth the following categories of action items, the specifics of which we would like to discuss in person with the executive teamwithin a month:
Publicly address and condemn Elon’s harmful Twitter behavior. SpaceX must swiftly and explicitly separate itself from Elon’s personal brand.
Hold all leadership equally accountable to making SpaceX a great place to work for everyone. Apply a critical eye to issues that prevent employees from fully performing their jobs andmeeting their potential, pursuing specific and enduring actions that are well resourced, transparent, and treated with the same rigor andurgency as establishing flight rationale after a hardware anomaly.
Define and uniformly respond to all forms of unacceptable behavior. Clearly define what exactly is intended by SpaceX’s “no-asshole” and “zero tolerance” policies andenforce them consistently. SpaceX must establish safe avenues for reporting and uphold clear repercussions for all unacceptablebehavior, whether from the CEO or an employee starting their first day.
Elon Musk’s Electric Car Batteries Made By Forced Labor Overseas
Increasing ties have been found between the origin of the batteries needed to power the technology and forced labor in Chinese work camps.
In addition to forced labor, Uyghurs are also subjected to re-education, wherein government-appointed “teachers” attempt to create loyal subjects to the nation and communist regime.
These are the steps that the The Public must demand in order to strengthen public integrity by eliminating corrupt financial conflicts in Congress. These “Big Tech Gorilla” abusers steal technology because they can steal technology. They buy politicians, lobbyists and shill reporters to help them get away with it.
Congress must be ordered, by the voters, to eliminate both the appearance and the potential for financial conflicts of interest. Americans must be confident that actions taken by public officials are intended to serve the public, and not those officials. These actions counter-act the corrupt actions taken by tech oligarchs officials in illicit coordination with U.S. Senators.
Small business has experienced all of the damages from each of the abuse-of-power issues listed below. Your public officials are being paid BRIBES through their family stock market holdings. We asked every office of Congress what the worst of the problems are and this is what they told us, below.
CUT THEM OFF – Demand that Congress make it a felony for any politician, judge or regulator to own stocks, or to let their family own stocks. If they want to get rich, they can go into another line of work.
If the public can get these laws made, it will end 90% of American corruption. Politicians won’t allow these laws to be made because it will cut off their corruption. Thus: You have to force the politicians to make these laws and leverage them with investigations and recall elections.
These are the actions needed to resolve this corruption:
- Ban individual stock ownership by Members of Congress, Cabinet Secretaries, senior congressional staff, federal judges, White House staff and other senior agency officials while in office. Prohibit all government officials from holding or trading stock where its value might be influenced by their agency, department, or actions.
- Apply conflict of interest laws to the President and Vice President through the Presidential Conflicts of Interest Act, which would require the President and the Vice President to place conflicted assets, including businesses, into a blind trust to be sold off
- Require senior Department of Energy government officials, employees, contractors and White House staff to divest from privately-owned assets that could present conflicts, including large companies like Tesla, Google, Facebook, Sony, Netflix, etc., and commercial real estate.
- Make it a felony to not respond to a filing by a citizen within 48 hours. Former White House and Energy Department staff use ‘stone-walling’ to intentionally delay responses for a decade, or more.
- Apply ethics rules to all government employees, including unpaid White House staff and advisors.
- Require most executive branch employees to recuse from all issues that might financially benefit themselves or a previous employer or client from the preceding 4 years.
- Create conflict-free investment opportunities for federal officials with new investment accounts managed by the Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board and conflict-free mutual funds.

- Lifetime ban on lobbying by Presidents, Vice Presidents, Members of Congress, federal judges, and Cabinet Secretaries; and, multi-year bans on all other federal employees from lobbying their former office, department, House of Congress, or agency after they leave government service until the end of the Administration, but at least for 2 years ( and at least 6 years for corporate lobbyists).
- Limit the ability of companies to buy influence through former government officials.
- Require income disclosures from former senior officials 4 years after federal employment.
- Prohibit companies from immediately hiring or paying any senior government official from an agency, department, or Congressional office recently lobbied by that company.
- Prohibit the world’s largest companies, banks, and monopolies (measured by annual revenue or market capitalization) from hiring or paying any former senior government official for 4 years after they leave government service.
- Limit the ability of companies to buy influence through current government employees.
- Prohibit current lobbyists from taking government jobs for 2 years after lobbying; 6 years for corporate lobbyists. Public, written waivers where such hiring is in the national interest are allowed for non-corporate lobbyists only.
- Prohibit corporate outlaws like Google, Tesla, Facebook, Linkedin, Netflix, Sony, etc., from working in government by banning the hiring of top corporate leaders whose companies were caught breaking federal law in the last 6 years.
- Prohibit contractor corruption by blocking federal contractor and licensee employees from working at the agency awarding the contract or license for 4 years.
- Ban “Golden Parachutes” that provide corporate bonuses to executives for federal service.
- Publicly expose all influence-peddling in Washington.
- Strengthen and expand the federal definition of a “lobbyist” to include all individuals paid to influence government.
- Create a new “corporate lobbyist” definition to identify individuals paid to influence government on behalf of for- profit entities and their front-groups.
- Radically expand disclosure of lobbyist activities and influence campaigns by requiring all lobbyists to disclose any specific bills, policies, and government actions they attempt to influence; any meetings with public officials; and any documents they provide to those officials.
- End Influence-Peddling by Foreign Actors such as that which occurred in the ENER1, Severstal, Solyndra and related scandals.
- Fire the Fed officials that own, trade and pump stocks using the Fed itself for profiteering.
- The most senior officials in the U.S. Government are the worshipers of Elon Musk, investor’s in Elon Musk’s companies and suppliers, deciders of the financing for Elon Musk, suppliers of staffing to Elon Musk, recipients of political campaign financing by Elon Musk and Musk’s covert Google And Facebook partnership, social friends of Elon Musk and the attackers of Elon Musk’s competitors. Make this a felony.
- Combat foreign influence in Washington by banning all foreign lobbying.
- End foreign lobbying by Americans by banning American lobbyists from accepting money from foreign governments, foreign individuals, and foreign companies to influence United States public policy.
- Prohibit current lobbyists from taking government jobs for 2 years after lobbying; 6 years for corporate lobbyists. Public, written waivers where such hiring is in the national interest are allowed for non-corporate lobbyists only.
- End Legalized Lobbyist Bribery and stop lobbyists from trading money for government favors.
- Ban direct political donations from lobbyists to candidates or Members of Congress.
- End lobbyist contingency fees that allow lobbyists to be paid for a guaranteed policy outcome.
- End lobbyist gifts to the executive and legislative branch officials they lobby.
- Strengthen Congressional independence from lobbyists and end Washington’s dependence on
lobbyists for “expertise” and information.
- Make congressional service sustainable by transitioning Congressional staff to competitive salaries that track other federal employees.
- Reinstate the nonpartisan Congressional Office of Technology Assessment to provide critical scientific and technological support to Members of Congress.
- Level the playing field between corporate lobbyists and government by taxing excessive lobbying beginning at $500,000 in annual lobbying expenditures, and use the proceeds to help finance Congressional mandated rule-making, fund the National Public Advocate, and finance Congressional support agencies.
