Neocon Nikki Haley Gets Paid as Boeing Outsources Engineering Work Amidst Deadly Crashes

Haley joined the scandal-plagued defense contractor to cash out despite their aggressive outsourcing.

After leaving the Trump administration, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley joined the board of defense contractor Boeing to cash out based on her years of government work.

“It’s an honor to have the opportunity to contribute to Boeing’s continued success as a cutting edge industry leader and a great American company,” Haley said after she joined Boeing’s board of directors.

Haley was not reticent about joining a corporation that is currently embroiled in massive lawsuits following recent massive crashes of their 737 MAX airliners that resulted in hundreds of deaths.

“We have learned that Boeing relied on a single sensor that had been previously flagged in over 200 incident reports submitted to the FAA (U.S. Federal Aviation Administration),” said attorney Nomaan Husain, who is representing Nadege Dubois-Seex in a $276 million lawsuit after her husband was killed when one of Boeing’s planes crashed.

The shoddy work in the 737 MAX airliner may be due to the corporation’s outsourcing of crucial engineering work. It was recently revealed by Bloomberg News that Boeing paid their foreign engineers as little as $9-an-hour to develop software to develop the plane, from countries with little aerospace experience like India.

Indian software developer HCL Technologies Ltd. was tasked to design code for the plane, which former Boeing software engineer Mark Rabin says led to a sharp increase in errors for the purposes of penny-pinching.

“It was controversial because it was far less efficient than Boeing engineers just writing the code,” Rabin said. On many occasions Rubin noted that “it took many rounds going back and forth because the code was not done correctly.”

A summary posted by an HCL employee shows the types of problems that occurred when the 737 MAX airliner was being tested.

“Provided quick workaround to resolve production issue which resulted in not delaying flight test of 737-Max (delay in each flight test will cost very big amount for Boeing),” the HCL employee summarized.

Boeing refuses to take any culpability for its hiring practices, maintaining that there is nothing to worry about despite the mounting evidence to the contrary.

“Boeing has many decades of experience working with supplier/partners around the world,” a company spokesman said. “Our primary focus is on always ensuring that our products and services are safe, of the highest quality and comply with all applicable regulations.”

Embracing globalism is certainly paying off for Boeing, particularly their relationships cultivated in India. Boeing inked a $22 billion deal in January 2017 to supply SpiceJet Ltd with commercial aircraft including over 100 737-Max 8 jets.

Boeing’s ruthless profit-seeking unfortunately comes with a great human cost. An Ethiopian crash of a Boeing 737 MAX airliner resulted in the tragic deaths of all 157 passengers and crew in March. In Oct. 2018, 189 people were killed after a Lion Air 737 MAX crashed into the ocean near Indonesia under similar circumstances.

Boeing’s history of embracing globalism and questionable safety practices did not stop ‘Neocon’ Nikki Haley from joining their board. Haley, who is a favorite of the Never Trumpers, is happy to further her ambitions even if it comes at the expense of hundreds of crash victims who were essentially sacrificed to boost Boeing’s bottom line.

Lindsey Graham Leads Senate RINO Coalition Urging President Trump to Protect Foreign Worker Visas

Graham led the letter of RINOs urging Trump to protect foreign labor.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is leading a coalition of RINOs in the Senate urging President Donald Trump to keep visas for foreign workers to take U.S. jobs.

Graham is joined by fellow RINO Sens. John Cornyn of Texas, Mike Crapo of Idaho, James Risch of Idaho, Mike Rounds of South Dakota, Todd Young of Indiana, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Dan Sullivan of Alaska, and James Lankford of Oklahoma in signing onto the letter that has the audacity to claim that these foreigners taking jobs from U.S.-born workers will help the economic recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.

“The coronavirus pandemic has brought devastating loss of life and livelihood across our country. As we begin to reopen, we know you have many difficult decisions to make to ensure the road to recovery balances economic wellbeing with the safety of every American,” the letter states.

“In part, that balance requires consideration of vulnerable American businesses across all industry sectors, including farming, forestry, packing, hospitality, healthcare, and communications and information technology, all which rely on non-immigrant guest workers to survive,” they added – showing that they care more about protecting corporate profits than protecting American workers.

The letter urges for Trump to specifically protect the H-2A and H-2B programs to keep so-called temporary workers in the country to steal jobs from American workers who desperately need them.

“As you know, the H-2A and H-2B programs are temporary and seasonal guest worker visa programs that allow businesses to find the help they need when no American worker is available or qualified to fill in the gaps,” they wrote, adding that they hoped the Trump administration would “continue to protect American farmers and other small business owners who work hard to provide our country with fresh food and other vital services by not pausing issuance of H-2A visas in the future.”

The entirety of the letter can be seen here:

The letter comes in stark contrast to another letter issued by young “America First” conservatives urging President Trump to put U.S. workers first.

Big League Politics reported on how one right-wing student leader appeared last night on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tongiht” to discuss the necessity of protecting U.S. workers during the coronavirus pandemic:

San Diego State College Republicans President Oliver Krvaric called for President Donald Trump to end the H-1B and OPT foreign worker programs during an appearance on Tucker Carlson Tonight on Tuesday, citing the danger the frequently abused cheap labor programs pose to the economic prospects of American college graduates.

“So essentially this giving a signal to this administration, letting them know that there is an appetite- especially among young likely voters to take care of the egregious H1B and OPT abuse that’s displacing American graduates and professionals across the board,” he said.

Krvaric had joined a coalition of College Republican groups across the country calling for an end to the visa worker programs in the midst of the recession. President Trump already enacted what has been called an immigration moratorium, but a lobbying effort by White House liberal Jared Kushner on behalf of globalist business groups limited Trump’s executive order to a few immigration restrictions.

The letter from the college Republican coalition staked out several policy proposals that would give American college graduates a real stake in mitigating the effects of the coronavirus recession.

President Trump should listen to his constituents who put him in the White House instead of the RINOs who he was elected to rebuke on immigration and other key issues.
