Elon Musk also flying to Trump Tower to kiss the ring

We recently learned that Tim Cook and Sheryl Sandberg were among a handful of tech moguls being summoned to Donald Trump’s gilded lair for a mysterious summit this week, but the full roster of invitees remained unknown. Yesterday, The Wall Street Journal revealed another name on the President-elect’s guest list: Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk.

The exact purpose of the meeting between some of America’s most successful businesspeople and Donald Trump is still unclear. If Peter Thiel’s alleged recruitment efforts are any indication, the summit will serve as an opportunity for Silicon Valley leaders to share their ideas with the next President of the United States.

If it’s like a similar post-election gathering of media organisations at Trump Tower (described by one attendee as a “fucking firing squad”), however, Musk and company will probably be asked to bow before the American Empire’s new god-king.

As the Journal notes, Musk potentially has far more at stake than his peers:

SpaceX’s single largest customer is the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, which over the past eight years has awarded contracts valued at more than $US6.5 ($9) billion to deliver cargo and eventually, U.S. astronauts, to the international space station. The company also seeks to win hundreds of millions of dollars of additional contracts from the U.S. Air Force over the next few years.
Tesla benefits from government tax credits that reduce the effective price of its vehicles. The electric car maker recently acquired SolarCity Corp., a company founded by Mr. Musk’s cousins that installs solar panels, a portion of the cost of which can be offset by federal tax credits.

Even under the best circumstances, however, the summit seems unlikely to be the kind of meeting of minds Silicon Valley Trump supporters like Thiel might hope for.

“Look, this is obviously a circus,” a source told Recode. “Everyone in tech just wants to be invisible right now when it comes to this administration, but has to participate since we have done it before.”

Recode is reporting that Reince Priebus and Peter Thiel personally sent out the invitations to about 12 or so Silicon Valley leaders for a meeting scheduled for this coming Wednesday. But according to Recode, leaders of the tech industry have been less than enthusiastic about the meeting.

Despite confirmation that people like Alphabet’s Larry Page will attend, we don’t yet know if others who were invited will show up. It’s not yet mandatory to meet with the president-elect if a private citizen chooses to decline the invitation.

If history is any guide, the meeting could be pretty awkward. When Trump previously summoned the heads of media, Trump chewed them out in what some people who were present described as a “fucking firing squad”.

“I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed,” Trump reportedly told Jeff Zucker, head of CNN.

Trump has repeatedly hit Apple for making products overseas and even floated a boycott of Apple products during his campaign. But he has been spotted “using” Apple computers on occasion.

As Recode points out, the list of leaders who haven’t gotten an invitation are perhaps as notable as those who have. The top execs at Netflix, Salesforce, Slack and Dropbox have not been invited. But leaders from Microsoft, IBM and Oracle have been. Those that have been invited are more deeply ingrained in the military-industrial complex and already have lucrative defence contracts. Others, like Uber CEO Travis Kalanick, were invited but will be out of the country.

great headline..like lemmings they line up..

musk has to go..he has to much on the line:

“SpaceX’s single largest customer is the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, which over the past eight years has awarded contracts valued at more than $US6.5 ($9) billion to deliver cargo and eventually, U.S. astronauts, to the international space station. The company also seeks to win hundreds of millions of dollars of additional contracts from the U.S. Air Force over the next few years.”

thats real easy money..

  1. Not sure why you are up Trump so bad. If the crap on mainstream media is any indication, they hate him. The elite own mainstream meadia, and they hate him. The disinfo is incredible. The lies are obvious. Any man that can make the elite shit themselves has quite a bit of credibility!!!

    • Not sure why you are up Trump so bad.

      huh?

      no sacred cows here mate! 😉

      call it as i see it..trump is better than clinton like a pimple is better than gonorrhea..i wanted her to lose but by default you get this guy and its negligent of me not to keep him under the same spotlight as we would any president..

    • just because he’s .000000000000000000001% better than HRC doesnt mean he’s not utter scum.

      according to the official team trump twitter, tillerson was backed by baker, rice, and gates. they’re proud of cheney’s endorsement of tillerson too.

      does that sound like draining the swamp to you?

  2. There are desperate efforts by the Elite, the Liberals, and the elite Democrats to steal the election from Trump!! Thats got to tell you something!

    • its all hyperbole..the electors will elect trump..he will be inaugurated unless taken out..the fed will not be taken apart..the full wall will not be built..and the paris climate agreement wont be torn up..want to make a bet? 🙂

    • Not really mate.. we keep an eye on everyone. especially Trumpet.
      U don’t get to run for El Presidente unless you are chosen/selected. You knew that right? (expect more obama style disappoint-mints)

  3. Ive never been an infowars fan, but i started listening to it the day of the election as the mainstream broadcast was disgraceful. Ive been listening to it every other day since, and mate, there is some great stuff on it. Jones is also holding Trump accountable for his promises. You gotta admit, Trump has said all the right conspiracy things and acted on them (global warming) etc.

  4. The story here is the lies and obvious bias of mainstream media. wow. its amazing.

  5. I dont believe all powerfull men in America were involved in 911… Actually, i bet there are MANY who detest it. The media was so compicit in the 911 false flag, that anyone they hate must be a danger to them.

    • you’re not allowed to be powerful in the USA if you cross the 9/11 red line. van jones was tossed out of the obama admin for the mere crime of signing a petition asking for a new investigation.
