Tesla, ‘World’s Safest Car,’ Explodes Like a Bomb
By DailyBellStaff - November 05, 2016

 

Fiery Tesla Crash Sends Flaming Batteries Shooting Like Projectiles, Killing Two In World’s Safest Car … When a Tesla Model S collided with a tree in downtown Indianapolis Thursday, an inferno erupted. The crash, which killed the driver and her one passenger, sent battery cells “firing off almost like projectiles around rescuers,” fire department officials told local NBC affiliate WTHR.  “It hit that tree and it bounced around and all of a sudden it just exploded,” Al Finnell, an eyewitness, told the station. -IBD

The world’s safest car just blew up like a bomb but that message seems to be getting lost amidst the larger coverage about Tesla.

For years and years, Tesla has never made a nickel despite spending hundreds of millions of dollars. But the company is beloved by the predictable monetary elites that seek more and more control over the rest of us.

Founder Elon Musk offers that potential control. Every day, he works as hard as he can to ensure that sooner or later government will take away your ability  to drive where you want when you want.

Here at DB, we’ve written several articles about Tesla (here and here, most recently). We don’t like the car and much more than that, we don’t like the implications behind it.

Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, is fairly clear about his goals. He wants to create an electric, self-driving car. And he has Tesla fans throughout the US and the world.

Extend the logic and you come the inevitable conclusion that larger entities will have to support Tesla’s vision. These entities will surely be linked to some sort of government control.

Don’t pay your ticket? Have a confrontation of some sort outside of the home? Or simply fall afoul of one of a plethora of rules and regulations that increasingly hem-in behavior … and you will pay the consequences in terms of your driving life.

You will  get up in the morning and your car won’t start because someone has flagged your behavior. If you do manage to get your car started, it won’t go anywhere because its driving mechanisms have been disabled.

You’ll have to go to court. You’ll have to pay a fine. Then you’ll be able to drive again. Or maybe not. Think driving is a “privilege”? Just wait.

We could extend this logic beyond government. It’s perfectly possible that large private entities could have relationships with government that generate similar consequences.

Why Musk has managed to attract fans for his cars given the inevitable results of his technology is a mystery to us. His ability to continue to fund his endless automotive depredations are a mystery as well.

It is most probable that his access to funds has a lot to do with the maturation of his technology and the increasing governmental control it offers.

We live in a time when technology is  being celebrated as an enabler of freedom but it the kinds of technology that Musk is perfecting has little to do with freedom. No doubt it could, but not in the current climate.

There are other issues as well. Musk is running a vast corporation with other people’s money. But if you look elsewhere you will see other titanic entities are throwing their resources behind the development of technology, especially robots.

It would be one thing if these technological innovations were being developed by entrepreneurs. But one of the biggest developer of robot technology – deadly technology at that – is the Pentagon.

Since we’ve already seen movies about deadly robots,  we’re not shocked by the idea of what the Pentagon is doing. But that doesn’t make it much better.

How many people wake up in the morning and decide they’re going to build a robot that will kill people automatically?

But that’s what is going on. This technology is being developed by huge corporations with virtually unlimited funds. These corporations wouldn’t exist without monopoly central banking and a variety of rules and regulations to support them and ensure they have little or no competition.

The world today is technocratic and fascist. It is run by gigantic corporations that would not exist without laws and judicial decisions that guarantee their viability no matter how incompetently they operate.

These corporations work hand-in-glove with governments around the world. Both the corporations and governments are run secretly by the same banking cabal that runs central banking via the Bank for International Settlements in Switzerland.

In other words, the technological progress that we are supposed to celebrate is actually being organized for nefarious purposes. It wouldn’t exist in the form it does without vast entities that have turned their energies toward perfecting technology that is  intended to create additional control, not freedom.

A normal entrepreneurial society in which individuals and groups applied technology with an eye toward marketplace acceptance might end up with completely different kinds of technology.

Many people might reject self-driving cars and killer robots – at least without proper safeguards.

But we don’t have normal societies in the world, for the most part. Instead we have people like Elon Musk who builds “the world’s safest car,” albeit one that explodes like a bomb at high impact.

More:

The impact knocked the wheels off of the car before the batteries caught fire and exploded. Speckman died at the scene while her passenger, 44-year-old Kevin McCarthy, died at the hospital.

What else do we learn? “’Lithium-ion battery cell fires are tough to put out,’ Indiana Fire Trucks Battalion Chief Kevin Jones said.”

The Tesla Model S is “known” for being fabulously safe. As the article informs us, it achieved the highest National Highway Traffic Safety Administration rating of any car ever tested.

Conclusion: Except when it explodes.

    Read Miles Mathis’ paper on Elon Musk. Very interesting… milesmathis.com/updates

    • That link is broken because it is missing .html at the end.
      It should be
      //milesmathis(DOT)com/updates.html
      http://milesmathis.com/updates.html

      There is no search field on that site and it is a multi-page index by date. Can you provide a date please?

      • kwin

        Sure… 10/7/15 “I Don’t Believe in Elon Musk.”

        • Nothing there with that date. 😕

          • kwin

            You must be looking at his physics article updates. Go to his art sight (milesmathis.com) and click on Updates. The first papers should be on Obama’s geneogy. Then scroll down…

          • Another wild goose chase!! I was interested, I even fixed your incomplete link. Now I am just annoyed.

            Why did you even bother to post the original comment if it was too much bother to get it right?

          • kwin

            I can assure it wasn’t intentional. Now that I have access to a larger screen I see his art site uses his middle initial “w.” mileswmathis.com
            A quick search for his name would have shown you my error and spared your annoyance…

          • Nexusfast123
          • Thank you, Nexusfast, for the pdf.

            After reading thru Mathis’ opening assertions, I was pleasantly surprised by his factual back-ups!! With that caveat, I highly recommend his article.

          • James Clander

            That’s certainly a report worth reading. Lots to think about

  • apberusdisvet

    Shouldn’t Musk be building electric boats? After all, with the icecaps melting, leaving 2/3 of the world’s population under water within a few decades (h/t Al Gore), water craft would be a more logical way to waste the taxpayer money. sarc/

  • I think Lone Skum finances his Tesla cars with US funds given by NASA to his SpaceX operations to send fake capsules to the fake international space station. All is fake about him and his operations.

    • mary

      We know he funds Tesla with other govt funds that are supposed to promote alt energy, which Tesla cars don’t do. And don’t forget the Solar City fiasco

      Anders, can you point me to evidence that the space station is fake, particularly in regards to the many claims I’ve read that the space station can be seen from earth? ty

      • The International Space Station seen from Earth is probably an unmanned satellite orbiting Earth at great speed and altitude – a silver balloon – to impress/fool us. Reason is that you cannot dock with it and you cannot return alive from it according my calculations provided at my web site. The space station is part of a NASA hoax to steal money from tax payers.

        • James Clander

          — -except that it’s a so called “International” Space Station that Russia is heavily involved in as well. Can’t see them being part of the same scam ? — please advise otherwise.

          BTW I don’t believe anyone has been to the Moon & returned.

          • mary

            The Russians went along with the cold war/nuclear weapons hoax and the moon landing hoax, too. Why not this?

          • georgesilver

            mileswmathis(dot)com also has an article showing that ALL films and photos of atomic explosions are fake.

          • robt

            Atomic weapons being revealed as a hoax means we should all feel less threatened after being frightened for so many years for no reason.

          • The Russians are part of the space race hoax since the 1950’s, IMHO. The first man in space was a Russian. But it was just propaganda.

          See my comment above as well.

    I might get flagged if I give this article a thumbs up. Sorry.

  • georgesilver

    Free with every non-polluting Tesla car…. a polluting power station.

  • pepper

    thank you & bless you for using electro-motive force to kill yourselves-
    more fuel for me & you guys, right? : )
    too early?

  • Praetor

    Excellent DB. Musk is just a con-artist, with government backing.!!!

  • Don Duncan

    All the above criticism of this particular tech could have been used to vilify the military’s invention of the internet, in spades. And the ‘net was meant to be controlling by authoritarians, for authoritarians. It backfired, big time.

    So what? So some tech can’t be identified as evil. Only people are. I do not fear tech. I welcome it as a natural extension of the mind.

    Half the fun of being on the “bleeding edge” is you never know where it will take you — or how much you will bleed…

    “In other news, 90 other people died today while crashing Fords, Chevrolets, Hondas, Nissans, and VWs. Where are their big headlines? Oh that’s right, we’re only scared of new things, not infinitely scarier but older things.” (Great comment from Daily Mail)

    Elon Musk and Tesla are one of the greatest success stories in America. Yet many Americans keep bashing him like a bunch of neanderthals laughing at the guy who can start his own fire. I agree that big corps and banks around the world are running and destroying the world but Musk isn’t one of them. He is NOT financed by the govt. He got a $365 million new tech development loan from the feds when he ramped up the building of the Model S and paid it back 5 years early. Ford and GM got billions which have still not been paid back. For those who think conspiracy, this very article seems like a plant from “big oil” that sees a very dim future for themselves as electric cars eliminate their earth killing pollution.

    • Mstrjack

      Oh good grief. I’ll bet you still believe that the 1969 moon landing was real and not a TV soap opera.

    • JohnnyZ

      See my comment above

  • James Clander

    I looked at one of these cars on a recent visit to Germany – Fabulous looks & finish.

    Every new technology had its teething problems –AND – I note that ordinary petrol motor vehicles often explode in a serious enough collision. That woman must have been driving like a maniac at very high speed to cause the damage she did.

    This Daily Bell article is also available at Zero Hedge. The following comment from a Zero Hedge reader makes a lot of sense – – –

    “Gasoline explodes much better than batteries. Each year there are an
    average of 152,000 car fires in the USA, killing an average of 209
    people. I cannot believe how Tesla gets trolled on Zerohedge. From what I
    can tell it is one of the best cars ever. The only problem with them is
    the quality. And they are so good at jumpinig in and fixing warranty
    problems that owners are posting love videos to their cars on YouTube.
    As an engineer I can tell you it is impossible to put out a brand new
    product that does not have a mountain of problems. In a few years they
    will have quality licked. Then it just might be the best car company in
    the world. That is provided frightened children don’t convince their
    congressmen to outlaw the Muskmobile. Ford and GM would love that. He
    paid back the government loans, by the way. Years ago and early.”

    • Mstrjack

      Steam Power is by far a better technology.

      If only the government would allow it.

      • robt

        According to the specification on the website, the engine requires 800,000 BTU/hr for a 100 HP engine for vehicle propulsion. That’s about 8 USG/hr, or 15 USG of methanol/hr, or 13 USG ethanol. Liquified natural gas would be about 13 USG/hr. Assuming eight USG/hour at, say 70 MPH would mean about 9 MPG on gasoline. Fifteen USG of ethanol would be less than 5 MPG.
        The engine is claimed to develop superheated steam at 1200 degrees fahrenheit under 3200 psi pressure. (Superheated steam is the process whereby saturated steam is passed through the heat source a second time, significantly boosting the pressure; the temperature is raised several hundred degrees).
        The engine is claimed to run ‘above’ 30 per cent efficiency, a little less than an internal combustion engine.

      Sorry, gasoline cars do NOT blow up. They can burn, but NOT blow up. Gasoline is flammable, not explosive. To get the Hollywood effects, they have to put explosives in the cars. If a car does blow up–for example Michael Hastings and Paul Walker–that’s a dead give away (sorry for the pun) for murder. Think about it, have you ever seen a gasoline car with your own eyes blow up in an accident in real life? I can’t believe adults can’t tell the difference between real life and the movies.

      This guy may be an engineer, but he’s not a chemist. Note how his first two sentences are a nonsequitur? First he says gasoline explodes (which it doesn’t) then he give stats on car fires. Of course there are car fires. That’s not the issue.

      This gasoline cars blow up is a psyop.

      • JohnnyZ

        I think Paul Walker faked his death. The car that “crashed” did not even have the same number plate.

  • woohooman

    Hit piece. TESLA is way ahead of the competition. Anyone disagreeing is an industry hack.

  • Re-news

    … driving a car that you know might explode if you mess up probably makes you a better driver. lol

  • rahrog

    Think of all the trouble tesla can save car bombers.

  • NJguy – Proudly Deplorable

    Who keeps giving money to this idiot? Is he getting funded from carbon taxes?

  • Tim C.

    Don’t tell Obama about this, he might just want to earn another Nobel Peace Prize by dropping one from a drone onto a children’s hospital in Aleppo.

  • JohnnyZ

    I always found Elon Musk somehow unlikeable. But I found out why. He is a major freemason – that is why he is pushed so strongly.

    “Why Musk has managed to attract fans for his cars given the inevitable results of his technology is a mystery to us. His ability to continue to fund his endless automotive depredations are a mystery as well.”

    I think the above paragraph explains it pretty well. People nowadays seem to be zombiefied to idolize “celebrities” – hollow satanist puppets that are playing them for fools. Musk’s Ebay co-founder, Peter Thiel, got involved in Facebook (a CIA pushed company) at an early stage and is a Bilderberg participant. Musk makes all the masonic hand signs when in public. His Space X company is pushed by NASA and co. And by the way his rockets seem fake – e.g. check how his carrier rocket “lands back on a platform in the middle of the ocean (where no one can see) after arriving back at an angle” – its all CGI (add on top of it that it seems that earth is flat and NASA or the ISS have never been in “space”).

    “In other words, the technological progress that we are supposed to celebrate is actually being organized for nefarious purposes.”

    One of those purposes seems to be the push of transhumanism – e.g. achieving immortality (god status) via cloning, transfer of consciousness in a hybrid man-machine vehicle etc. The control of the cattle (or goyim as some call them) is of course another aim.

    “Both the corporations and governments are run secretly by the same banking cabal that runs central banking via the Bank for International Settlements in Switzerland.”
    I think this only one arm (maybe among the most important ones), but there are others – ideological, religious, scientific, political, military etc.
