The right and #Tesla fans see it as a fight for free speech
Sun Tsu provides a combination of both, in a wild game of 4D chess 1/ 2/ I'll start with a question many $TSLA investors are asking: Why go political? Why paint a huge target on your back?
Sun Tsu supports this idea. Try to avoid being seen as an enemy, grow your strength in the shadows, strike by surprise when strong
This was not an option

When doing my series that went viral HOW GM SOLD AMERICA, one question constantly bugged me:
If GM wanted to move production to China, where was the UAW? Why didn't they act to stop GM's plans?
This video explains why.
Unsurprisingly, the answer is "Follow the Money" 1/ 2/ For those who missed the series, here's a link to the playlist
- Part 1: Giving the Tech
- Part 2: Moving Production to China
- Part 3: Sucking Taxpayer Dollars

SPACEX + UKRAINE = ONGOING
You probably know that Elon's providing tremendous help to Ukraine with Starlink.
But did you know that Ukraine has worked with SPACEX previously, before the war? 1/ 2/ First, for those who didn't catch it, here's Zelenskyy's talk with Elon yesterday
Let's say you're an OEM planning to make 50-50 ICEV-EV by 2025, 2028, 2030 - you name the date
Till now I thought you're screwed bc demand will go full EV soon, but even disregarding demand fall, you're still screwed bc of DOUBLE DISRUPTION
1/2/ The first disruption is EVs eating demand, but the 2nd disruption is your INABILITY to make the ICE cars you do have demand for
We all know closing ICE factories will be costly with layoffs, environmental cleaning etc, but also it's 3D chess on which you have little control

TESLA BOT UPDATE
All following occurred BEFORE earnings call, mostly Sunday-Tuesday
Preface: My CTO friend has pivoted her company's future plans around the assumption that Tesla Bot will become a reality😮
1/2/ I briefly said this before and will give details in video I'll make soon, but anyway, this shows conviction that bot will be a thing
Their plan is highly risky IMO but they seem very confident

The first pic was used as a teaser for #Tesla#Cybertruck, so reusing it as a teaser for my next video
And I need a teaser because it should be MY BEST VIDEO BY FAR!
1/ 2/ Not leaking topic yet, but giving hints:
1. Title ultra provocative, topic touchy. It's LOVE it or HATE it. Risking many of my viewers leaving me, but hoping they won't and this has to be said!
2. It's about Elon (+possibly Tesla)
3. Not a hint but it's also about a farm

BREAKING NEWS! OTHER OEMs TO USE GIGACASTINGS!
A trustworthy source working for a well-known OEM shared some interesting info with me regarding their employer's future plans, including giga (or mega) castings: 1/ 1/ OEM acknowledges that having both ICE and EVs is a DISadvantage compared to pure-EV plays such as Tesla. Converting old factories and unloading ICE legacy slows the transition and adds cost

TESLA BUILDING AN ENERGY TRADING TEAM
True story: I have extensive experience in Resource Allocation Algorithms/Systems, so several years ago I was offered to be chief engineer for developing a novel energy distribution system 1/ cleantechnica.com/2021/09/09/tes…2/ I started learning about the project (which had already started along with a subcontractor) and the problem at hand.
Real interesting project!
Client was a foreign utility company which supplied power to lots of varied customers - from retail households to large industry

B. Not just for Tesla. Will be REMEMBERED IN HUMAN HISTORY as THE DAY THAT STARTED IT ALL

I need your help for a video I'm making.
Do you recall a movie scene (or music vid, cartoon etc) where ppl
turn light on and find something huge/surprising/frightening/important
OR see one thing and then something else big hidden behind it or in plain sight?
2/ My video is on a hot topic and shows something people didn't notice, probably bc other things drew their attention, so it's either I turn the light on this topic (and show what was in dark) or i show something people didn't see bc focused on something else.
