    Elon Musk Restarts Tesla Factory In Defiance of County Orders

    Tesla CEO Elon Musk said Monday that the company's factory in Fremont, California is open and has restarted production despite a stay-at-home order issued by Alameda County. TechCrunch reports:

    Musk said in tweet Monday afternoon that he will "be on the line," a reference to the assembly line at the factory where Tesla makes the Model X, Model S, Model 3 and Model Y. He added "if anyone is arrested, I ask that it only be me." Musk's reopening follows days of public venting on Twitter as well as a lawsuit all aimed at pressuring Alameda County officials to allow the company to reopen its factory. Tesla filed a lawsuit Saturday against Alameda County seeking injunctive relief, an effort to invalidate orders that have prevented the automaker from reopening.

    Tesla had planned to bring back about 30% of its factory workers Friday as part of its reopening plan, after California Gov. Gavin Newsom issued new guidance that would allow manufacturers to resume operations. However, the governor's guidance included a warning that local governments could keep more restrictive rules in place. Alameda County, along with several other Bay Area counties and cities, last week extended the stay-at-home orders through the end of May. The orders were revised and did ease some of the restrictions. However, it did not lift the order for manufacturing.
    Good for him. With the media hype of COVID, the only thing really spreading is FEAR, by, of course, the Fearmongers. I swear the intent is to collapse what is left of the economy and force mass starvation as that gives the Elites plausible deniability. Well they wouldnt have starved to death if only they let us vaccinate them, chip them, enslave them, and give them Universal Basic Income, and all they had to do was just give up every freedom that so many had died to establish. I think Elon may understand that without the ability to work, people will starve.

    Honest Money System , which frees the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, is the single largest contributing factor to the World's current Economic Crisis.

    Musk is sort of a loud mouthed idiot like Trump. But I agree with him doing this, like I agree with most of what Trump does.

    He was also threatening to move to Texas.

    Instead of threatening he should just follow through and actually do it.

    I wouldn't say Elon is loud mouthed but he has said some things that didnt vibe with the media/outrage mob or eventually he had to take back but I like that about him. Hes got this sort of social autism that allows him to think on a different level and not be afraid to say it.

    And good for him. Hope he leaves CA. Maybe he'll finally understand what Peter Thiel has likely been saying all these years.

    Yeah. Because it is really easy and cheap to move the main production plant, and all the employees and reroute the whole production and supply chain of a $143 billion company.

    Could it be he's looking for another opportunity to dance in China again?

    Possible, but more likely move to China or Tel Aviv.

    This was way before any lockdown directive were issued in the US as part of President/VP led war on 'unseen enemy' aka COVID-19:

    While TX like CA also shares very high border wall with MX but if recall correctly, in TX a hair salon owner was sent to prison few days ago for not adhering to lockdown directives guided by President led Task Force's phased reopen plan.
