In Coronavirus Hoax Economic Devastation, Coronavirus Lockdown, Elon Musk by Jeffrey Lee PierceLeave a Comment

The coronavirus hoax was a bridge too far for the Dems. They really thought that they could destroy everyone’s life without a backlash because they’re so desperate for dictatorial power that they often quickly and easily delude themselves into believing that they have it. And they’re all afraid of being ostracized by their fellow cult members if they don’t play along with the delusional party line.

UPDATE: The lawsuit has in fact been filed, per the WSJ story below, just hours after Musk made the threat in his tweets.

Excerpted from the Wall Street Journal: Tesla Inc. has asked a federal judge to allow the electric-car maker to reopen its lone U.S. assembly factory, calling a local government’s insistence that it remain closed to fight the spread of Covid-19 a power grab that defies the U.S. Constitution.

The lawsuit, filed Saturday, followed a new string of messages on Twitter by a frustrated Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk, saying he is ready to abandon California as the company’s home after Alameda County officials said Tesla can’t resume production even as the state begins to start reopening.

The Tesla CEO, through Twitter, on Saturday morning said: “Tesla is filing a lawsuit against Alameda County immediately. The unelected & ignorant “Interim Health Officer” of Alameda is acting contrary to the Governor, the President, our Constitutional freedoms & just plain common sense!”

By the evening the company released details of how it planned to keep its workers safe, saying it had begun the “process of resuming operations.” It didn’t specify when production would restart.

“Alameda County’s power-grab not only defies the Governor’s Order, but offends the federal and California constitutions,” Tesla said in the lawsuit, filed by outside lawyer Alex Spiro.

The company filed its suit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, seeking an injunction against the county’s order and arguing, in part, that the local government had overstepped its authority by overruling the

Tesla initially fought to stay open in March when the local order was first announced but eventually relented under pressure, stopping production on March 23. It had hoped to resume manufacturing on May 4, a day after the shelter-in-place had been scheduled to be lifted but that order was extended last week through the end of May, sparking Mr. Musk to call such restrictions a violation of people’s rights and equated them to fascism.

Excerpted From CNBC: CEO Elon Musk said on Twitter Saturday that the company is preparing to file a lawsuit against Alameda County, and will move its headquarters and future operations out of California.

On Friday, Alameda County’s interim public health officer, Dr. Erica Pan, said that health orders to contain a Covid-19 outbreak in the region are still in place, and that Tesla does not have a “green light,” to resume vehicle production at its main U.S. car plant in Fremont, California yet.

Tesla had wanted to resume production on Friday afternoon. The plant is where the company makes vehicles for Europe and North America.

Insulting Pan personally, Musk wrote on Twitter:

“Tesla is filing a lawsuit against Alameda County immediately. The unelected & ignorant ‘Interim Health Officer’ of Alameda is acting contrary to the Governor, the President, our Constitutional freedoms & just plain common sense!”

He also claimed that: “Tesla knows far more about what needs to be done to be safe through our Tesla China factory experience than an (unelected) interim junior official in Alameda County.”

Previously, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO called Covid-19 health orders “fascist,” on a Tesla earnings call.
