Sold As A Savior For The Environment, The Cold Reality That EVs Are Unsustainable Now Clearly Evident As Tesla, GM And Ford All Furiously Slashing Prices

Outside of wealthy, trendy communities, consumers are walking past plug-in EVs and snapping up hybrids and gasoline-powered engines instead.

We have all seen the videos of what happens when the batteries that power EVs get exposed to salt water, they burn for hours and take tens of thousands of gallons of water to put out. We live in America’s oldest city, Saint Augustine, and watch as 10 million tourists flock here each year to enjoy the sites. But I have yet to see my first EV charging station anywhere in or out of town. The sad truth is EVs are not sustainable in the long run, and if you don’t own your own home, in the short run as well.

The chariots shall rage in the streets, they shall justle one against another in the broad ways: they shall seem like torches, they shall run like the lightnings.” Nahum 2:4 (KJB)

As for me, I like my gas-powered vehicle, I can fill it up anywhere and everywhere. I like my gas-powered stove and gas-powered dryer. Now, if you want to come up with a better technology that the common people like me can easily use and afford, I say let’s have it. But creating elitist cars that only the rich can afford that run on a power grid that is underpowered and regularly breaking down in the summer time is not the answer anyone is seeking. Car manufacturers and rental car agencies like Hertz are losing their shirts, and running as fast as they can to get away from EVs. You should, too.

Evidence EVs are a fading fad is ‘rolling in fast’ as Tesla, GM and Ford slash prices on electric vehicles

FROM MARKET WATCH: In the early 1990s, every self-respecting American yuppie and retired suburban couple bought an electric bread maker, with sales hitting 4 million units. But the fad soon faded as these amateur bakers discovered that stuffing a precise quantity and ratio of flour, eggs, butter, yeast and salt into a metal box takes time and costs much more than strolling to the corner bakery.

Are plug-in electric vehicles the bread makers of our day?

Despite Tesla Chief Executive Elon Musk’s entrepreneurial brilliance and billions of dollars in U.S. government subsidies to support EVs, it appears that consumers still prefer to drive to a gas station for a five-minute fill-up than to retrofit their garage and suffer the range anxiety that comes from hunting for a charging station in the parking lot of an abandoned shopping mall. J.D. Power reports that 21% of public chargers do not work in any case. As consumers start to shy away from EVs, their choice will affect not just the car industry, but U.S.-China relations, state budgets and commodity prices.

The evidence is rolling in fast. Earlier this month, Hertz HTZ, which purchased 100,000 Teslas to great fanfare in 2021, executed a squealing 180-degree turn and began dumping one-third of its EV fleet, taking a $245 million charge against its earnings. Its pledge to buy 175,000 EVs from GM GM, 0.03% will likely go up in smoke, too.

EVs tend to sit on dealer lots for about  three weeks  longer than gasoline-powered cars.

Outside of wealthy, trendy communities, consumers are walking past plug-in EVs and snapping up hybrids and gasoline-powered engines instead. In the fourth quarter of 2023, EV sales crawled up by just 1.3%. According to Edmunds, EVs tend to sit on dealer lots for about three weeks longer than gasoline-powered cars. With Mercedes Benz MBG, +2.53% EQS units languishing for four months, the company’s chief financial officer recently acknowledged that the market is a “pretty brutal space.” Customers are staying away despite a price war in which Ford F, 0.44%, Tesla, and GM slashed EV prices by 20%, on average, leading Ford to lose $36,000 on each unit sold.

MARK IT DOWN: Elon Musk Proudly Tweets On X That The First Human Has Received His Implantable Neuralink Brain Chip, Will YOU Be Next?

Elon Musk, billionaire founder of Neuralink, said the first human received an implant from the brain-chip startup on Sunday and is recovering well, in a post on social media platform X on Monday.

Elon Musk has achieved fame and riches untold through the use of cutting-edge technology assisted by artificial intelligence, and today he announced on X that his company Neuralink has successfully implanted the brain of the very first human. Wow, to infinity and beyond, eh? Well, not so fast. My dime store King James Bible, last updated in the year 96 AD, is still way ahead of anything he has or will invent. That new brain chip? Get in line, bucko, we know what that’s all about.

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:16,17 (KJB)

Funny how technology, all of a sudden, is giving us things like the iWatch, Amazon Palm Pay, the Neuralink brain chip, is it just me or does anyone else see a theme building here? For longtime listeners of our NTEB ‘Rightly Dividing’ King James Bible studies, you know that this is a 3-step plan. Step one they got us in front of a computer, that took place from 1994 to 2007. Step 2 is they put the technology on us, that started in 2007 with the iPhone and continued up to 2020. Step 3 is the implanting of the technology inside of our bodies as the world gets prepared to recieve Antichrist and his mark.

Elon Musk says this about his new brain chip: “Enables control of your phone or computer, and through them almost any device, just by thinking. Initial users will be those who have lost the use of their limbs. Imagine if Stephen Hawking could communicate faster than a speed typist or auctioneer. That is the goal.” You really should blow the dust off your Bible and get back to reading it, it’s way ahead of Musk and his Silicon Valley minions.

Elon Musk says first human implanted with Neuralink brain-chip

FROM THE NY POST: The Food and Drug Administration had given the company clearance last year to conduct its first trial to test its implant on humans.

“Initial results show promising neuron spike detection,” Musk added.

The startup’s PRIME Study is a trial for its wireless brain-computer interface to evaluate the safety of the implant and surgical robot.

The study will assess the functionality of the interface which enables people with quadriplegia, or paralysis of all four limbs, to control devices with their thoughts, according to the company’s website.

Reuters reported earlier this month that Neuralink was fined for violating Department of Transportation rules regarding the movement of hazardous materials. READ MORE

World’s Richest Man Elon Musk Visits Netanyahu In Israel As Some Call For Him To Be Given A Seat On UN Security Council As A ‘Global Player’

‘Elon Musk is not just a player that should be regulated by the American government. He’s a global order player, who should probably have a seat at the UN Security Council’

We live in a strange world during a most very strange time in human history. I realize that’s not good grammar but it’s quite accurate. Think about it, all the real power that exists in our global society is all concentrated in the hands of about 6 men, and all of them in the tech fin sector. The man at the top of the pile, the one with the most power and influence amongst world governments is Elon Musk. What a very strange time indeed to be alive.

“For the LORD shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act.” Isaiah 28:21 (KJB)

Your King James Bible has a lot to say about words that end in X. It tells of a coming king, that’s a REX, who brings with him a HEX, that’s the Mark of the Beast. That Mark causes a POX, Revelation shows us the ‘grievous sore’ that it will cause. The Mark of the Beast in Greek is ‘χάραγμα cháragma’, the number 666 in Greek is ‘χξϛ chx stigma’. X truly does ‘mark the spot’, how ironic is that statement? You’ll get it in a minute. This is what Elon Musk’s CEO at X says about their company, pay attention:

X is the future state of unlimited interactivity – centered in audio, video, messaging, payments/banking – creating a global marketplace for ideas, goods, services, and opportunities. Powered by AI, X will connect us all in ways we’re just beginning to imagine.”

So yes, we do agree, Elon Musk is absolutely a ‘global order player’, but he is much more than that. Elon Musk has been given nearly unlimited wealth and power, and the fame of him has gone out over all the Earth. World leaders fall at his feet because he is the guardian at the gates of technology, and he can sign the bottom of any check no matter how large. Just wait until he takes over the world financial system, because he will.

Elon Musk is preparing the world to receive X. What is X? Go open your King James Bible and find out.

Elon Musk Wields Starlink in Israel to Curb Uproar Over Antisemitism

FROM YAHOO! NEWS: A week ago, Elon Musk was facing international backlash after endorsing antisemitic content on his social media platform, X. Corporations including Apple Inc. and Walt Disney Co. stopped advertising on the site in protest of hateful and racist commentary.

And yet on Monday, Musk was in Israel being welcomed by the nation’s political elite — including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu — to visit the region where the Islamic militant group Hamas murdered 1,200 people on Oct. 7.

For all of Musk’s stumbles, world leaders can’t afford to criticize or alienate him for long: The world’s richest person holds the keys to powerful technological tools. In this case, Starlink, his satellite internet provider, is at the heart of his political clout. Starlink, which is owned and operated by Musk’s rocket company SpaceX, formally named Space Exploration Technologies Corp., has provided him with the ability to woo world leaders from Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to officials at the Pentagon, by offering essential communications services.

“Musk is not just a player that should be regulated by the American government. He’s a global order player, who should probably have a seat at the UN Security Council,” said Tehilla Shwartz Altshuler, a senior fellow at the Israel Democracy Institute. “Elon Musk can simply shirk his responsibilities and that’s because of his power.”

While Musk toured the Kfar Aza kibbutz, where some of the worst violence occurred last month, wearing a protective vest and snapping photos or videos on his phone, Israel’s Communications Minister Shlomo Karhi tweeted about a deal the ministry is discussing with Starlink. A representative for SpaceX didn’t reply to a request for comment.

Musk had proposed providing internet services to Gaza last month and said Starlink could help support connectivity with “internationally recognized aid organizations.” But Karhi rejected the offer at the time, saying “Hamas will use it for terrorist activities.”

Musk, who calls himself a free-speech absolutist, often weighs in on political matters on X, which he bought last year for $44 billion. But he may have gone a step too far earlier this month after agreeing with an antisemitic post, which said that Jewish people hold a “dialectical hatred” of white people. The global response was swift and fierce. The New York Times reported that the exodus of advertisers could cost X as much as $75 million in lost revenue this year.

It wasn’t clear how Musk’s trip to Israel came about, whether he was invited by Netanyahu or requested the trip himself. But his generally warm welcome in the country mixed pleas for regulating antisemitic commentary on X with discussions of satellites.

Starlink now counts more than 4,500 satellites in space, more than half of all active satellites, that communicate with terminals on Earth to provide high-speed internet. Based in Hawthorne, California, the closely held company was valued last year at about $140 billion and could eventually seek a public listing. READ MORE

After Warning About The Dangers With ‘Releasing The Demon’ Of AI, Elon Musk Creates New Artificial Intelligence Company He’s Calling X.AI

Published

on

SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

Elon Musk has created a new company dedicated to artificial intelligence — and it’s called X.AI, as first reported by The Wall Street Journal.

Elon Musk for years has warned against the rise of AI, even going so far as to say that because of our dependence on mobile devices, we have already become transhuman. He famously said in an interview that AI was ‘releasing the demon’, and on many levels we say that to be largely true. Now Elon Musk throws his hat into the ring with the launch of X.AI, which no doubt will be tied to his implantable brain chip company Neuralink. One does wonder, however, if any of this or indeed all of this has any connection to his Baphomet Halloween costume with the upside-down Christian cross? Hmm, I wonder.

And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” Revelation 13:15 (KJB)

Back at the dawn of the 20th century, the world seemed to be filled with inventors creating things like the light bulb, the telephone, the automobile and the skyscraper, all things that made life better, faster, easier and more prosperous. But here in the opening quarter of the 21st century, everything is dark, mysterious and foreboding, ever wonder why that is? Tech company Apple makes, on a good day, one billion dollars give or take a few hundred thousand. One billion dollars per day! And yet, all of this can be explained with a Book written over 400 years ago and available for free in our Bookstore for people who can’t afford one. I am quite confident that Elon Musk and his X.AI company will be used to advance the end times timeline, and as he has said, to usher in the ‘release of the demons’.

Elon Musk founds new artificial intelligence company called X.AI

FROM THE VERGE: The company, which a Nevada filing indicates was incorporated last month, currently has Musk as its director and Jared Birchall, the director of Musk’s family office, listed as its secretary. The filing, which The Verge has also obtained, indicates that Musk incorporated the business on March 9th, 2023.

Rumors about Musk starting up an AI company have been floating around for days, with a report from Business Insider revealing that Musk had purchased thousands of graphic processing units (GPUs) to power an upcoming generative AI product. The Financial Times similarly reported that Musk planned to create an AI firm to compete with the Microsoft-backed OpenAI. Musk even reportedly sought funding from SpaceX and Tesla investors to get the company started.

During an interview on Twitter Spaces, when Musk was asked about all the GPUs he purchased, the billionaire made no mention of his plans to build an AI company, stating “it seems like everyone and their dog is buying GPUs at this point.” The purported X.AI name matches the branding of the X Corp. name he has since assigned to Twitter, along with the “X” label he’s applied to his vision of an “everything app.”

Musk has been openly opposed to OpenAI, the AI organization that he co-founded in 2015 but walked away from in 2018, and recently signed a letter calling for a pause on “giant AI experiments.” In recent months, OpenAI has become a hugely recognizable name on the backs of technology like ChatGPT and GPT-4 and is partially responsible for kicking off Microsoft and Google’s current push to integrate AI tools more deeply into many of its products.
