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.

Published

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.

OUT OUT OUT: Study Shows That Each Illegal Alien is Up to a $6,500-Per-Year Burden for the U.S. Taxpayer

The cost of illegal immigration is massive.

Published

on

A ground-breaking new study has shown that illegal immigrants cost the U.S. taxpayer approximately $6,500 per year by soaking up welfare cash and other government benefits after they break the law to enter the country.

The study, commissioned by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), showed that that small states are particularly burdened by the illegals, and the money and services are going to aliens instead of veterans, children, and the disabled.

FAIR surveyed ten small states and determined that illegal immigration cost them an average of $454 million per year.

“To put that figure into context, that $454 million expenditure is more than 200 times what the state of Montana budgets for its entire Veterans Affairs program, and it is 2.5 times the total sum that West Virginia invests in its state university,” the report states.

Dan Stein, president of FAIR, notes that the native populations of these small states are getting squeezed the most by the burden caused by illegal immigrants. These individuals are essentially being replaced as a once-great nation transforms into a globalist economic zone.

“In many ways, the influx of immigrants into less populous areas of the country has an even greater impact on long-time residents than it does in larger and more urban areas,” Stein said.

“These areas have neither the tax base, nor the economic and social infrastructure to accommodate the needs of the growing numbers of immigrants taking up residence,” he added.

The FAIR study, Small Migrant Populations, Huge Impacts, analyzed Alaska, West Virginia, South Dakota, Vermont, Wyoming, New Hampshire, Montana, Mississippi, North Dakota and Maine to discover their startling conclusions regarding the costs of illegal immigration.

“Many local officials tout immigration, including illegal immigration, as a remedy to economic stagnation. However, as this report reveals, the reality is precisely the opposite,” Stein said.

“Illegal immigration, in particular, drives down wages and inhibits job opportunities for legal residents, while bringing more low-skilled, low-wage workers to these states. In turn, this increases costs to state and local governments, and discourages investment by businesses seeking a skilled labor force and lower overhead,” he added.

FAIR released the following video to accompany their newly released study:

“This report highlights the fact that the adverse effects of unchecked mass immigration, combined with an immigration selection process that does not choose people based on individual merit, job skills and education, are now being felt in all parts of the country,” Stein explained.

“Americans, in every part of the nation, are being affected by antiquated and unenforced immigration policies, which is why it is at the top of the list of voter concerns heading into the 2020 elections,” he added.
