IAM Strikes Boeing - say it ain't so!

IAM strikes Boeing - outsourcing Defense and Amerian Jobs overseas? IAM baffled why USAF awards the Tanker contract to Northrop not Boeing. Lou you and IAM are total wankers. Boeing is the military complex worst offender! IAM you back Boeing and then strike Boeing guess the USAF made the right choice NOT to buy a tanker Boeing and IAM have delayed for 7 years.

Late, Late and Boeing wants more time....

Past Performance a key factor but Boeing wants a 6 month delay to the revised GAO RFP on the Tanker contract. Boeing has already delayed the contract over 7 years with criminal acts and political wankering - Now Boeing wants six months to evaluate the RFP changes they ask for from the GAO! The draft amendment to the KC-X Tanker Request for Proposals addresses the GAO concerns by clarifying in the new RFP. Boeing needs six months to evaluate the changes they wanted or the changes GAO agreed with - so why the extra time for answering the RFP they protested for? What they really wanted is an RFP that just hands the contract to Boeing and stall hoping for a political win come next year to just hand them the contract. Three years late on delivering tankers to Japan and Italy - Airmen sorry, if Boeing gets their hands on the tanker contract kiss this decade and most of the next good bye.

Wankers looking to postpone with letter to Gates - they have had 7 years by hook or crook.

The paid Boeing crew on the hill are at it again! After Gates took control and told all 45 days to a new RFP with the GAO changes. Now the political wankers are stalling, they need more time! The real problem is the new RFP doesn't just hand the contract to their boss Boeing. Tiahrt, Dicks, Murray, Bond, Roberts, Akin or as we like to call it the $250,000.00 Boeing contribution wanker ploy. Delay until they are ready, they got the GAO findings incorporated, then they try a bill to hand the contract to Boeing, now they need more time? They have being trying to hand the contract to their boss Boeing for 7 years by hook, crook or politics.

What's missing from the letter? The wankers sound bytes these past months.- Subsidies- American jobs - Outsourcing American defense and why, their bull shit doesn't fly! All they have left is MilCom and stalling for time so Boeing can catch up, they know that won't fly either!

Boeing mulls 'no re-bid' - after 7 years!

Aviation Week - reported that Boeing was "strongly considering" not submitting a bid on the contract. If you don't re-bid how can you do what you do best "protest"! Boeing in all their illegal, political manuvering, protests, media blitz and political pundants have put the Tankers needed by the USAF nearly Seven years behind. Re-bid, lose again, protest again and keeping our airmen at risk for a decade - Boeing knows what's best for the USAF and America. "Thanks for seven years of Boeing bull shit"

Don't let the Boeing manuvering fool you. What's going to happen to Boeings political wankers Tiahrt, Dicks and Murray who have been spouting Boeing non-sense all these years? Boeing paid for them they are Boeing's to leave hanging just like Boeing has done to the airmen, Air Force and America. Boeing has to re-bid - this is just a media pre-protest by Boeing about the GAO updates to the re-bid that failed to just hand the contract to Boeing. It's all - "just more Boeing bull shit"

Re-bid plus the wankers wrote a bill to try and legislate a Boeing win!

The Tanker re-bid RFP is out and the GAO issues addressed but now the wankers Dicks, Murray and Tiahrt are saying - "Today the Department of Defense (DoD) took the next step and released the new draft Request for Proposal (RFP). After talking with senior officials at the Department of Defense and reviewing some of the changes made to the draft RFP, I continue to have strong reservations about the RFP. So they wrote the Boeing Bill to try and legislation a Boeings win.
The just give the contract to Boeing Bill!
The wankers legislation to hand the contract to Boeing with the Boeing Bill written by the Boeing paid political pack would:
Require the Pentagon to seek a medium-sized tanker like the one Boeing offered. Why - The 767 is the only thing Boeing could possibly build, their bill calls for a Boeing win reguardless of any competition.
Prohibit extra credit for a larger tanker like the one offered by Northrop Grumman and the European Aeronautic Defense and Space Co. Why – Boeing can’t compete or exceed the mission with a 767.
Require that a new tanker be capable of refueling all of the planes currently flown by the Air Force, a requirement the Northrop-EADS tanker was unable to meet but was dismissed by the Air Force in the earlier competition. Why – They don’t even have a 767 tanker and fueling obsolete aircraft would give Boeing an advantage since they can't refuel anyting, why not say they can do everything! - ask them what current aircraft!
Require the Pentagon to consider the cost of operating the new tankers over a 40-year life cycle, rather than a 25-year life cycle. That could favor the Boeing plane, which according to one analysis would use $35 billion less fuel over 40 years. Why – They can’t win on 25 years they need 40 years to just try and keep even.

What’s missing from the wankers bill and all their sound bytes these past months.
- Subsidies
-
American jobs
- Outsourcing American defense
and why, their bull shit doesn't fly!

Boeing's big Subsidy

Bidding war to see who could give the sweetest deal to Boeing in order to land the contract to build Boeing’s new 7E7 jet airliner. Boeing set a June deadline for state legislatures to submit their offers. The document containing the fine print of Washington State’s bid will not be publicly released. In less than three days, on June 11, both political parties gave Boeing the largest handout in Washington State history - an astounding $3.2 billion in tax breaks and $4.2 billion in Boeing-inspired transportation projects. The 7E7 final assembly plant (if built at all) will net only 800-1,200 new jobs.
Through arm-twisting and blackmail, Boeing convinced the state legislature and the media that Washington State is “uncompetitive,” setting in motion a bidding war between states for 800-1,200 new jobs, and identified 99 “recommended” actions for our legislature to enact to make Washington “business friendly.” In response, the legislature cut spending for public needs and devoted their time and our tax-dollars to Boeing and a few other multinational corporations. One union leader, interviewed afterward, referred to it as "the day corporate greed won."
It’s incredible to see the details of this deal, which was the biggest tax write-off in state history. Here is only part of what was implemented by the Washington state legislators last year on Boeing’s behalf:

Peppermint Patty & Pantsuit Politics

Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., Supports the Lease of Boeing Refueling Tankers by the Air Force on the floor of the Senate. Darlene Druyun, an Air Force official assigned to the tanker lease contract and who was hired by Boeing, was convicted of federal crimes for negotiating her job at Boeing while working on the tanker program. She and Boeing's chief financial officer at the time were sent to prison in the scandal. USAF awards tanker contract to Northrop Grumman Corporation not Boeing.

Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., said she was frustrated and angry that the contract was not going to Boeing, shot back: "You can put an American sticker on a plane, but that doesn't make it American-made”. Unless the company that gave Murray $59,300.00 is Boeing and out sources the 767 tanker and 777, 787 American jobs to Italian Aeronovali, China and Japans JADC of MHI, KHI, and FHI. Then is its ok to put a made in America sticker on it as long as the pockets of the pantsuite Boeings filling is Murray's.

Tanker Blog 767 Bull Shit Artists of Center for Security Policy - SPEEA and IAM

Boeing caught bribing, caught out sourcing, caught lying...Boeing to pay a $3 million fine for exceeding value limits on the purchases of parts from foreign suppliers for its military products. Boeing Unions have a fit when Boeing out sources wing and tail of 767 to Aeronovali in Italy and Japans JADC. Boeing wins A-10 wings made in America and out sources to Korea KAI. Boeing spokesman Jim Proulx said China is a valued customer and partner, and "it is our intent to continue to grow that relationship far into the future." Translation - Boeing will screw America, the Air Force, the American tax payers and their workers again!


SPEEA and IAM you were loud enough about your jobs when Boeing lost the tanker, what makes you think if Boeing won you would have had a job? - Boeing told you so! STRIKE and demand 100% American made from Boeing military and commercial. STRIKE - you've been feeding on Boeing divisive tactics so long you don't know the difference. STRIKE - or they will outsource the table scraps they toss you now. STRIKE

Boeing - you can polish a turd but.....

Re-organize to put a new face on Boeing's paper tanker. If it's such a wonderful US aircraft and company why the change? Boeing's CFO in prison for trying to buy off the AirForce to lease their paper tanker, loss of the contract to Northrop and holding on to a thread of GAO hope that their media blitz and paid political pundants will carry them through on the lies of smaller is better and american made.

Boeing farce of "american made"

Boeing and their political pundants spin American jobs right out of the US. Right under your nose. The irony of the situation was not lost on Northrop's PR professionals. The Lockheed/Northrop team had proposed basing all A-10 wing manufacturing work in St. Augustine. Even as Boeing and its tanker allies complain about Northrop's choice of a European tanker aircraft, Northrop's spokesperson said, they took jobs away from American workers to win another contract. The story should make Boeing's tanker supporters a little more reluctant to play the protectionism card. The next time you hear politicians or defense contractors scream about the threat of foreign competition, ask them about KAI's role in Boeings foriegn outsourcing the A-10 wing replacement program.

Boeing's $29,000.00 spin pig Norm Dicks - Congress 6th District Washington State, Home of Boeing!

Boeing World Headquarters, 100 North Riverside Plaza. Around noon, SPEEA will march to Chicago City Hall to draw attention to the $22 million of city-backed incentives used to attract Boeing. Boeing cut more than 35,000 employees from its U.S. workforce in the past three years.

Boeing - PR tail spin

Senator Jeff Sessions - “Today, Boeing is running a two page ad that uses statements from the GAO report to assert that the GAO found the KC-767 to be the best tanker in the competition. This simply is not true.” Jo Bonner - Richard Shelby - Artur Davis

Boeing Italian 767 Tanker

Boeing's vapor tankers

Don't let Boeing pull the Japan, Italian vapor tanker game on the USAF. Boeing is not what's good for America, the war fighter or tax payer. Boeing will outsource more of the Tanker while hiding behind made in America. Northrop will buy a French air frame and still create 48,000 jobs in america, 4,000 more jobs than Boeing, who will tell you the 767 is American -Boeing /Aeronovali/JADC!

Boeing's American Paper Tanker

Boeing - what really stinks.

What Boeing wants is not what’s good for America. Get the message through that thick self entitlement skin. Something stinks get a good smell downwind of Boeing, your right Patty Murray it doesn't pass the smell test your too close and use to the Boeing smell. A Band-Aid fix or will Boeing actually shake their rotten barrel. Get over yourself even the French can build airplanes and you can't control the world its market like you try in the US. Boeing had to outsource part of their commercial airline business to Italy and Japan just to get Italy and Japans commercial/tanker business while falling short on delivery. Boeing / Aeronovali / JADC get off your made in America hype your not, you sold out US jobs for revenues and bonuses.

The FIA disaster that cost us tax payers nearly $18B. The Boeing leadership turnovers to resignations and prison, pork barrel politics while the list is long and rotten - something stinks from Chicago to Everrett and they may have to finally ask - is that me! Yes it's you!

Gates says rebid Tanker contract

- Will Boeing/Aeronovali/JADC rebid be 100% american made? You made the noise, now live up to it! - What say you Dicks, where are you on american jobs now you pork pig?
- Will Boeing reduce its SSD costs? They said they have the facilities and people, NG dosen't! - Why are Boeing SDD costs so high?
- Will Boeing deliver a new schedule to make up for the lost time they caused the program?
- Boeing/Aeronovali/JADC has a lot of back tracting to do in their new rebid, they made a lot of noise on a number of issues - don't show up without backing up your BS!

- Will Boeing being the 777 forward or stick with the obsolete 767?
- Will NG winning again finally shut Boeing up?

Billboard Seattle - The unions!

Leave the lights alone! - the 3,688 other Aerospace companys and million workers in the USA need them. - Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, AeroJet, Ball Aerospace, Rocketdyne, General Dynamics, Rohr, Loral, Bendix, Aerospace Corporation, Goodrich Corporation, United Technology, General Electric, ARES, AAI, TRW, BAE, Honeywell and the 230 companies and 48,000 American workers for the new KC-45 Tanker for the US Air Force.

Union locals - where are the nose, wings, tail and rudder for the 767 made again? Can you say Aeronovali (Italy) and JADC (Japan)!

Boeing/Aeronovali/JADC 767 Tanker

We'll all hear the things Boeing and their propagandist hope - rebid, flyoff, split award or just hand the contract to the loser - in reality its an Air Force decision to let the contract stand.

Dicks Pig
The propaganda machine from Washington and Kansas will try and stop funding but in truth the budget is already approved. Congressman Norm Dicks of Washington says just give the contract "Dicks Pig" to the loser.

Tiharts Turkey
The best "Tiahrts Turkey" could hope is blocking future payments from next years defense budget. They don’t have enough votes in congress to stop payment. All they can do is try to sell publicly their desperate ideas and fiction to delay the needed Tankers. Ten years airmen have waited - Boeings CFO in jail, the new bid process, the award, the protest. Add to that two more years before Boeing could ever deliver a new tanker provided noting else goes wrong and their foreign suppliers for the nose, wings, tail and rudders can actually deliver.

Paper Cannolli
The Air Force awarded the contract on a number of merits including past performance and confidence in the supplier. Three years late delivering the “Paper Cannolli” the 767 Italian tanker. $18B lost on Boeings FIA disaster, their deplorable relationship on the contracts they have. They couldn’t deliver a fence, how will they complete the SSD and deliver on time in two years from now.

Sleazy-as-can-B
Boeing’s sense of entitlement and arrogance are breathtaking. The propaganda and arrogance of Boeing backers - they think they know better than the Air Force what is needed! They will propose, speculate, and spout propaganda holding our servicemen and the Air Force hostage to their $35B demand.

State Department fines Boeing $3 million

Boeing has agreed to pay a $3 million fine for exceeding value limits on the purchases of parts from foreign suppliers for its military products.

Entitlement and Arrogance

Jo Bonner says - “It makes one wonder why there was even a competition at all, if the only “acceptable” winner was Boeing. “The company’s sense of entitlement and arrogance are breathtaking".

Remember this is the same Boeing whose officials pleaded guilty and went to jail over corruptly influencing the last tanker contract in 2003.

Congressional leaders from Washington and Kansas attempt tax coup!

Competition is being tossed out when it comes to Boeing by Washington and Kansas legislators. Tiahrt a fourteen year ex-boeing employee and the senators in Boeings pocket announced pork belly politics is now the name of the game in Washington DC when it comes to spending tax payer’s money. The delegation is calling for handing $35B to Boeing and forgetting about the need for competitive bidding and winning a contract is now not enough for any American company.

The bill doesn't stack the deck in favor of Boeing it simply hands the deck out right by the morally bankrupt to the criminal. Boeing convicted CFO attempted to bribe its way into tax payer pockets and enlists the pork belly pigs of capital hill to help commit the white collar crime of the century.

The GAO on a 111 point protest from Boeing held 103 of the of Boeings protests were not founded. Boeing has no tanker and the tax payers of America get the shaft from Washingtion and Kansas deligation. They want us all to fund their interests when the Air Force rejected their attempt time and time again. There are 48 other states in our union that won't let this happen stand up for fairness, standup for america, standup for the United States Air Force.

AF Post Hearing Brief

The Air Force post hearing brief of 154 pages is a very intresting read and is loaded with statemets such as: "In rasing this allegation. Boeing has once again attempted to substitute its judgement for that of the Air Force. Boeing continues to allege. Once again Boeing is wrong. Boeing's argument is simply without merit. Once again the facts do not support Boeing's claim." Very intresting read from the USAF as to why NG won!

"Seven-Chitty-Seven Bang Bang"


Starring Todd Tiahrt as Caraetacus and Patty Murray as Truly, co-staring those lovable felons Darleen Druyun and Michael Sears as Jemima and Jeremy, featuring the hilarious antics of Norm Dicks as The Baron. They sing and dance their way around the world in a foreign patchwork Flying Gas Can "Frankentanker" - in this magical two faced fairy tail with a cast of political pundits and protectionist all wrapped in the flag, while down playing their years of outsourcing American jobs to Japan and Italy.
