And Let me be very clear Mr. Trump, after what this country has been subjected to for the past eight years — it will be very personal for me if you screw this up! ~ Allen West
As Written By Allen B. West:
I am a firm believer in the free market economy. But I am a stronger believer in our national security, because economic prosperity without security means nothing. There must be a delicate balance in which the private sector isn’t hampered, as long as it’s operating with integrity. Once the private sector businesses begin to act in a corrupt and nefarious manner, there should be intervention – that’s the nature of good regulation.
We’ve previously shared how Boeing was advocating — ok lobbying — for the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the Iranian nuclear deal. Boeing spent big dollars fighting against legislators who were more concerned with our national security than their profits. Apparently Boeing and Ben Rhodes were batting on the same team, out and about spreading a false narrative for their own respective self and special interests — the heck with the American people. Well, now the chickens are coming home to roost on Boeing — as if having Iran select France’s Airbus over them for the contractual purchase of aircraft was bad enough.
As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, “Members of Congress have summoned the heads of airplane giant Boeing to a meeting to encourage the company to stop spearheading efforts to reenter the Iranian marketplace, a business pursuit that is jointly backed by the Obama administration, according to a letter sent Friday to Boeing leadership and obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
Boeing, like its French rival AirBus, has been working to woo the Iranian government following last summer’s comprehensive nuclear agreement.
Officials at Boeing—a top U.S. government contractor—opened discussions with Iran last month. The company is hoping to sell its aircraft and other services to Iran’s national airline.
Boeing’s overtures have been encouraged and facilitated by the Obama administration, which recently began a public campaign to encourage European and some American businesses to do business with Iran.
Obama administration officials are working with Boeing to help it avoid sanctions that might interrupt its business ventures in Iran, according to three leading House members who want Boeing to sever ties with Iran.
Insiders believe the effort is part of a larger bid to provide Iran backdoor access to the U.S. dollar. While the administration initially vowed to block this sort of action, it has walked back parts of its rhetoric about the nuclear deal in order to soothe recent tensions with the Islamic Republic.
Three House members from Washington state, a major base for Boeing operations, wrote to the company on Friday to request a meeting. The letter also was sent to the head of AirBus.
“We write to express our serious concerns over the sale of airplanes, parts, and other aircraft-related services to the Islamic Republic of Iran,” write Republican Reps. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, the GOP conference chair, Dave Reichert, chair of the House committee that regulates trade, and Dan Newhouse.”
Whoa, what’s happening here? You mean Republican Members of Congress are going after a big corporation? You mean to tell me that the hater of corporations, Barack Obama, is siding with and assisting a large corporation to have backdoor deals with the number one state sponsor of Islamic terrorism?
You mean to tell me Boeing wants to enable Iran, a militant Islamic regime? Boeing wants to place its special interest over that of our American men and
