Elon Musk showered with praise from public, after Biden admin shuns him from White House EV party

Looks like Elon Musk will have the last laugh after being shut out of the White House Electronic Vehicles party by the Biden Administration.

It certainly shouldn’t effect Musk’s sales. The move, however, makes absolutely no sense at all.

Yet, the public’s response to Biden’s shunning of the King of EV’s is priceless. Musk supporters are all over social media with the funniest of memes and some pretty interesting statements and observations.

The fact that the White House left him out of the party really is bizarre since Musk’s Tesla corporation (ticker: TSLA) sells more EVs than any other company in America, according to Barron’s online. Think about this, between 2015 and 2020 there were 974,000 all-electric vehicles sold in the U.S. and of those 730,000 were made by Tesla.

White House officials did not respond to reporters questions about the decision to leave Musk out of the EV party.

However, Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg said on CNBC, “we are moving toward a future where this is all across the market. I don’t want there to be a perception that this is just…a luxury thing or…or cars that you use to zip around cities.” 

Weird response don’t you think.

There were 10 million electric cars on the world’s roads at the end of 2020, following a decade of rapid growth. Electric car registrations increased by 41% in 2020, despite the pandemic-related worldwide downturn in car sales in which global car sales dropped 16%. Around 3 million electric cars were sold globally (a 4.6% sales share), and Europe overtook the People’s Republic of China (“China”) as the world’s largest electric vehicle (EV) market for the first time. Electric bus and truck registrations also expanded in major markets, reaching global stocks of 600,000 and 31,000 respectively.

Biden frees Venezuelan President Maduro’s drug dealing relatives in prisoner swap

Joe Biden

President Biden freed two of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s relatives Saturday in exchange for seven jailed Americans. The two nephews of Maduro’s wife Cilia Flores, had been convicted in the United States for drug dealing and sentenced to 18 years in prison, according to the BBC.

According to the report, the swap was in exchange for five American oil executives. Those Americans were “exchanged for two of Mr Maduro’s wife’s nephews, who were serving 18-year sentences in the US on drug charges,” the officials told the BBC. Maduro’s nephews were convicted under the Trump administration and the Venezuelan government claims that they were “unjustly” jailed in the United States.

In a statement from the White House Saturday, Biden said the American’s were  “wrongfully detained.”  He said the American’s  would soon be reunited with their relatives, according to reports.

“Today, we celebrate that seven families will be whole once more. To all the families who are still suffering and separated from their loved ones who are wrongfully detained – know that we remain dedicated to securing their release,” the Biden statement added.

Meanwhile, 13 Republican members of Congress sent a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, requesting more information on “the intelligence report” that alleges Maduro is emptying his prisons and allowing them to head to the United States in the caravans that crossing the porous border.

The letter states that the report warns Border Patrol agents to be on the look-out for “violent criminals from Venezuela among the migrant caravans heading towards the U.S.-Mexico border.”

“It has been widely reported that the Venezuelan regime, under the control of Nicolás Maduro Moros, is deliberately releasing violent prisoners early, including inmates convicted of ‘murder, rape, and extortion,’ and pushing them to join caravans heading to the United States,” the letter states.
