Nice Tunnel Builder Rahm

  • Electric car manufacturer Tesla has asked suppliers to simply give it money back in order for the company to stay afloat According to the Wall Street Journal, a Tesla memo calls the payments “essential to Tesla’s continued operation.”

    The Wall Street Journal reports that Tesla has asked some of its suppliers to refund the electric car company money that it previously used to purchase parts and supplies for vehicle production. According to a leaked memo, the company is requesting money back from suppliers to help the car company become profitable, as if this is the responsibility of the company’s suppliers. The company reportedly asked suppliers to return a “meaningful amount of money” from the companies payments since 2016.

    The memo was sent by a Tesla global supply manager and described the monetary request as “essential to Tesla’s continued operation,” and “characterized it as an investment in the car company” according to the Journal. Tesla declined to comment on the memo, but did confirm that they have been seeking price reductions from suppliers for their recent projects.
Rahm's supposed business acumen is looking pretty tattered right about now. How did he ever made any money in the private sector if it wasn't handed to him via crooked Clinton contacts?

“Crooked Clinton contacts,” ain’t that the truth.
It paid to put that wedding dress in basement storage, it paid really, really well.

I can see why campaign donors line up to make an investment in this digitally challenged prick.
What I can’t see is why sheeple line up to vote for this prick.

His business acumen is non-existent. I guess the monorail ain’t coming to town after.

Fuck You Rahm!

Musk is a grifter.

Successful at proving the adage, There's a Sucker Born Every Minute, is still thoroughly true.

Only the stupid are impressed with the few successes, produced not BY Musk, but by those who get paid with public funds via subsidies and all those suckers who've invested in the grifter's grift.

Remove the public funded subsidies and Musk becomes the Mutt he is, with whatever stash of cash he has, as the grifter he is, off somewhere with no extradition treaty with the USofA.

About a century ago, W.C. Fields said it. Still is true.

Rahm made his money via the usual suspects that make money on everything they touch. This vile natured little twerp couldn't run a damn hot dog stand successfully. But he sure seems to know how to pick someones pocket for $15,000,000 by being a panderer. Well, anyway, that's what they call it when you arrange for someone to get sex, when you introduce people to make money from the taxpaying boobs, it's called shrewd business acumen. Now Rahm, head back to the congressional shower to berate someone who just stepped out of the shower and is looking for his clothes, you sawed off little wanna be bully.

Musk is just like most democrats. They love using other peoples money and screwing other out of theres. For Rahm “its for the children”. For Musk it’s “ for our continued operation”. This guy is a snake oil salesman but people fall all over themselves thinking he is some kind of savior. Fuck you Rahm. And fuck you Elon Musk. Taxpayers already subsidize your crap.

Musk never built a working tunnel before. His machine dug a short hole under that's the extent of his experience. Kind of like a guy who says he can build the highest skyscraper in Chicago but never built one before. But he did build a model of one made out of cardboard boxes.

Gabe Klein, Architect of DC’s Bike Progress, Is Chicago Bound

Chicago Mayor-Elect Rahm Emanuel has snapped up Gabe Klein, former head of the District Department of Transportation in Washington, to head up his transportation team in the Windy City

According to Erik Weber at Greater Greater Washington, “Gabe Klein was the poster child for Fenty’s reliance on fast-acting, agile agencies that were willing to push new policies quickly into fruition, evaluate them on an interim basis, and, assuming successful outcomes, work quickly to push for broader implementation.”

Klein, whose résumé includes a stint as an executive at Zipcar, based many policies on the principle that people shouldn’t have to own their means of transportation. He advocated for car-sharing, bike-sharing and transit in order to reduce household transportation costs.
DC active transportation advocates already miss Klein. Chicago is luck to have him.
Hat tip to Alex Goldmark at Transportation Nation for the breaking news on the Klein hire.

KLEIN: " $positive...."

please provide email address so I can send you these emails.
tiny dancer must go!!!!

Democrats don’t have any business acumen. They have their hands in everyone’s pockets and everything is done as a favor to someone on a wink and a handshake. That’s how they make money and Rahm is no different.

elon musk needs to use the state of illinois supply chain method.

'as long as i owe you, you will never be broke'

illinois has what? 8 billion owed to suppliers?

So the owner of Tesla already has permission to start building this tunnel and project, he has proven that his skill set is unproven! The bigger question is how much were the elected officials paid off to even consider this monstrosity?

How many of these dreamers and users and lovers of OPM (other people's money) ever actually worked a real job? NOT ONE OF THEM. They know zip about anything, other than conning people. Grifters, users, con artists, theives, flim flams and on and on and the idiots vote for them...

By the time he starts and gets barely through the ballerina will be gone,with all the extra payoffs and he will be prancing and dancing away! Musk tries but his brain spins up ideas,they are not plausible, he is like Thomas the tank engine "I think I can,maybe I can" but at least Thomas realizes he can't do all things as Musk thinks he can! Trump will not give him billions in a government bailout as barry obama did for many democratic donors!

When money is tight, where investors get returns upfront, in-laws get their broker fees up front too, why not roshambo the taxpayer for the coin, especially when it’s for a shaky sham outfit that’s suckered the greenie snowflake tender minded libs?
Couple years ago this would have passed through lickety split.

Funny how the “investors” (i.e. friendly obama donors) from failed the obamaEra hairbrained Solyndra made out very well in the beginning, huh?
Who made out on Tesla so far? (i.e. former obama friendly advisors).
Rahm slept late on this Tunnel - no money for “investors”, seems like bad timing. but as long as he’s still in office there’s a good chance Muskie will be saved by a Chicago style Block 37 Deal too.
Maybe that’s the real reason he wandered off the reservation to China couple weeks ago.

And since Corrupt Chicago has a proven history of bad deals from the get-go...
Think we can get LAZ Parking to give back some surplus money collected on taxpayer owned streets?
What about the fortuitous Skyway?
The Economic Engine known as Ohare Airport?
Think Rahm can renegotiate some of those Contracts?
He’s all for violating contractual and promissory agreements.

If Muskie is hitting the brink, maybe he should have invested a campaign donation to Willie Wilson, the people’s answer to walking around money. Bad choice Muskie, you picked a loser.

Early Monday morning I pulled into the Union Station Parking Lot at Canal/Van Buren. Well over 200 brand new Mercedes CLA250, GLA250 and Smart (or not so smart) cars parked in the garage. Each one with the "Cars2Go" logo. The Mercedes are +$34,000 vehicles. The only thing "Cash Positive" with this deal are the election coffers.

The "Montana Skeptic" (an outspoken critic of Musk in
financial blogs and on Twitter) has agreed to stop writing
about Musk and shut down his Twitter account after Musk
friendly Twitter users tracked down his real identity and
Musk called his boss and threatened to sue for damages.
This is breaking news.

Those aldermen should stop that tunnel until after the election. The new mayor shouldn’t have to deal with Rahms nonsense projects. Where is the brains of these 50 thieves ? Let Rahm fund the tunnel with the 15 million he stole from Wall Street. If Rahm Gaines from Wall Street , who lost that 15 million ? That money came from somewhere! I would like to know exactly where the 15 million originated from!! Stop
voting for millionaires, they can not relate to you !! Good god help us!!

just read in this months smithsonion air&space that space x was completely paid for by nasa and used nasa facililities and computers and engineers. improving a linear concept (80year old rocketry) and doing it slightly cheaper than boeing is progress but not earth shaking break throughs the fawning snowflakes would have you believe. i wrote a comment a couple days ago of my tunneling experience in shitcago and would like to add one thing to this fairy tale. in the trump economy there are not enough qualified tunnel rats in the whole country to man this job. all our union halls are empty. no engineers, iron workers, laborers etc. no equipment either. all in use. while not glamorous, this is skilled work done by specialists. most trades will never go underground in their career. its cold wet and muddy. its arthritis and phuenomia work. the idea that this yuppie carnival barker can come into town and outdo companies that have done this for 50 years is ludicrous like their shitty cars. no personel, no equipment,no experience, youre hired! didnt these fools learn anything from solyndra? i give up.
