Trump faces a truly meaningful choice at SecState -Iran, Boeing, Air Force 1 >> CORKER MUST GO

We have heard a lot about fake news in the last few days.
Trump caught the usual guff over the Air Force 1 deal.
  • He’s a buffoon
  • He’s a liar, who originates, spreads and buys into fake news
  • He shoots from the hip without facts
There appears to be LOT to this story.
Trumps claim of $4+bn is correct. It’s $357m x 2 for 2 747-8’s, $750m for AF-1 equipment, $330m for basing facilities and $2.8bn for ‘research’
Trump appears to have SINGLED OUT BOEING.
WORLD TRIBUNE- Report: Obama moving entire F-16 production line to India
The Obama administration is moving to have the F-16 produced “exclusively” in India.
While the F-16 has been produced in other countries through joint ventures before, President Barack Obama’s move could mark the first time that an entire assembly line has been moved abroad.
The U.S. is phasing out the F-16 for its own use and embracing newer programs like the F-35.
Obama gave the defense industry the go-ahead on plans to build the classic American fighter jets in India. Both Lockheed Martin and Boeing have been in talks with the Indian government to build the F-16 Fighting Falcon and the F/A-18 Super Hornet for the Indian Air Force in India, according to the Washington Post.
Boeing responded that this would cost no american jobs. But of course this is UPSIDE DOWN REASONING. If the F-35 will be replacing both the F-16 and F-18, are there no Americans who would then be INCREASINGLY EMPLOYED building these jets for export? Is it unreasonable that this would occur to a man like Trump?
WORSE and more impactful ..Trump spent YEARS decrying the Iran JCPOA nuke deal as one of the worst deals in the history of deals. It’s a treaty, so HOW ON EARTH did Obama avoid the 67 vote Senate requirement of assent?
In other words, Senator Corker (and the GOP senate leadership?), like Mrs. Clinton is a card carrying member of that party which has no party, and consists of the elite receiving career sustaining and enriching actions of the Wall Street and Corporate beneficiaries who have NEITHER national nor moral criteria to judge their own actions.
Andrew McCarthy in National Review:
top GOP donors like Boeing stood to cash in big-time if the Iran deal was consummated. Boeing had ingratiated itself with Tehran when Obama granted some sanctions relief for Iran’s crippled aviation sector in order to keep the mullahs at the negotiation table. Boeing leapt in to provide Iran Air, the regime’s national carrier, with all manner of assistance – notwithstanding that Iran Air, basically an arm of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps, was best known for providing material support to Hezbollah and the Assad regime. Indeed, in 2011, the Treasury Department designated Iran Air as a proliferator of weapons of mass destruction. By helping Iran at a key point in the negotiations, I pointed out, Boeing stood to win huge Iranian contracts once the Iran deal was approved and sanctions were lifted. Well I know you’ll be shocked to hear this, but Iran has just announced a huge deal to buy aircraft from Boeing! (Thanks to Anne Bayefsky for the heads-up.)
This is, therefore a matter of Trump carrying through on national security, a SOLEMN CAMPAIGN PROMISE in FP, and his entire raison d’etre as president, to MURDER the political class’s amoral actions, and drain the swamp.
If Mr Trump appoints Sen Corker, he will have COMPLETELY violated the oath he has not yet taken, and two of his most important reasons for winning.

Last night at the Michigan rally Trump reiterated we are going to "Hire American and Buy American."

He also introduced Andrew Liveras (CEO of Dow) to head up the American Manufacturing Council. Liveras came to the stage and announced he was going to build an innovative R & D complex in Michigan.

If prior to being POTUS Trump is already working on jobs theft, etc. I believe he will come out swinging in January.

Our GOP have served themselves heaping platters of goodies and reduced us to Fagin's band of beggars.

There has been discouraging stuff going on. We have to be honest about this.

I'll show you another thing that is cause for concern.

Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit who seems to have multiple orgasms over Trump every single day, is concerned about THIS:
