Saudis Buy Uber: No More Women Drivers!

Uber has welcomed the largest investment in history by Saudi Arabia, the hegemon's ally, but a named conspirator in the 9-11 attacks.

Uber said on Wednesday that it had raised $3.5 billion from Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund, the kingdom’s main investment fund. The money was part of the ride-hailing giant’s most recent financing round and continued to value the company at $62.5 billion. The investment does not cash out any of Uber’s existing investors.
As part of the investment, a managing director at the Public Investment Fund, Yasir Al Rumayyan, will take a seat on Uber’s board, joining Uber’s chief executive, Travis Kalanick, and other directors, including Arianna Huffington.
“We appreciate the vote of confidence in our business as we continue to expand our global presence,” Mr. Kalanick said in a statement. “Our experience in Saudi Arabia is a great example of how Uber can benefit riders, drivers and cities and we look forward to partnering to support their economic and social reforms.”
Social reforms?  Uber is about social reforms?  Where?  Saudi Arabia, where they have beheaded several hundred political dissenters this year?  Shouldn't the 28 pages detailing Saudi provision of the attack on USA be released before we let them get to big to jail?    Well, never mind, in capitalism if you are rich enough you cannot be prosecuted for crimes.

So what do we lear from Uber?  Success comes if you...

1. Benefit the hegemon over states and locals entities, that is shift revenue from local to federal.

2. provide massive self-reporting.

That is the winning combo.  Saudi Arabia wants in on anything that helps the hegemony, since Saudis are utterly dependent on the hegemony.  If the hegemon withdraws support, the Saudi regime will fall faster than Saigon in April of 1975.

Of course the Saudis don't care about women drivers or not, that is just for Saudi Arabia.  Wonder if Uber will be as hypocritical as to accept the Saudi ban on women drivers?  Who cares, it all benefits the hegemony, and the hegemon is who Kalanick worships.  The hegemony is making Uber successful by changing rules to benefit Uber.

The Bush family actively traded with the Nazis during WWII, and had companies seized by Congress when they got caught, so who cares?  Big money never worries.

If you qualify as a Uber driver (background check, fog a mirror), then you may buy any car 4 years old or newer, on credit, no matter how bad your credit is.  Your payments on the car are weekly and out of your Uber earnings (Uber makes the payment.)  The interest rates are very high, and this makes the borrower a slave to Uber (and the usurer).

This has been going on for at least three years.  I wonder how many people have been trapped by this Uber scam.

Four years old or newer means the car is trackable, the dealer can get a tow truck near the car and then shut the car down, repossess it, and have it back on the lot for sale to another Uber sucker before the engine cools down.

Feel free to forward this by email t three of your friends.

Hmmmm… more? do you see any camels on the streets of NYC now? Anyway, a month ago the Saudis were threatening to destroy our economic system by selling off all the US Bond they own… if USA releases the 28 secret pages of the 9-11 commission report, which names the Saudis. Fact is, that was silly … wouldn't happen, wouldn't work. Now the Saudis are making a real move, buying into the Hegemon's economy, where when their Kingdom is overthrown, thy can flee to USA where their billions await, invested in USA Hegemon enterprises.

Very good points John. The only camels in NYC right now come in small packs inside 24 count cartons. As for the Saudis, 19 of the terrorists that perpetrated 9-11 came from Saudi Arabia. Why did we not attack SA instead of going to Afghanistan? There's a lot that we do not know, even going back to the end of WWII where the U.S. gave asylum to Nazi scientists who eventually played a key role in developing U.S. rocket technology as well as nuclear weapons.
