      ‘A lot of money! Big dollars!’ and ‘Jobs, jobs, jobs!’ Trump team delivers $350 BILLION in new long-term business for U.S. companies as Saudis snap up defense equipment.

      Deals inked Saturday during signing ceremony will drive $110 billion in immediate new business for defense companies in the U.S.

      Longer-term value will be $350 billion over 10 years

      White House chief economic adviser said the Saudis are ‘going to hire US companies’ for ‘a bunch of infrastructure related things’

      He boasted that the deal is worth ‘a lot of money. Big dollars. Big dollars’

      Military hardware going to Saudi Arabia: ‘aerostats, tanks, artillery, counter-mortar radars, armored personnel carriers [and] helicopters’

      State Department also says the Saudis will acquire and and missile-defense systems ‘such as Patriot and THAAD’

      HRC took money from SA for her own financial gain! Barry from Hawaii did everything in his power to destroy this region of the world for the Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR, ISIS, IRAN etc.

      The magnitude of this agreement will live in Saudi history books for generations to come! SA knows that Jordan took in over 2 million+ Syrian refugees. President al-Sissi of Egypt has singlehandedly destroyed the MB in his country and ran the rats to Turkey. He also destroyed Hamas’ stronghold near the border of Israel to allow the Israelis greater security. Jordan, Egypt and Israel do not have the financial means that Saudi Arabia has. This investment was also an investment in those countries because they will grow the military hardware to be able to successfully fight the Iranians and other extremist nations.

      The other massive piece of this agreement is that it sets the foundation for a ME NATO type agreement with these countries. AD has spoken about that wonderful canvas. Folks some serious paint has been pored on that canvas today!

      Does anyone have more details on this global center to defeat the radical ideology?
      I think this is a major change in the war on terror. It adds a new element in addition to physical battlefield if I’m reading into it correctly. Gorka talked in his book about how we needed to confront the actual ideology (just like we did during the cold war)…not just drop bombs. Is this the beginning of an aggressive campaign with Muslim partners to do just that?

        Troublemaker, it’s just my opinion but I’m gathering (thanks to Sundance!) that all of this has been in the works for years. Somehow, maybe our Lion’s blessing on all of this helps bring it all to fruition. Credit must go to Egypt’s al-Sisi (sp?) and Jordan’s King [and Israel, of course!] but somehow having President Trump in on this rising tide helps add credibility to all of it.

        War, of course, never stops – it only pauses but even a pause may be welcomed by people who have been suffering for DECADES [again, I’m referencing what I’ve read from Sundance]. Maybe the Saudis get some good press out of this – maybe it’s only propaganda for them. I think, however, they’re going to discover that they have allowed a LION into their midst. They can choose to hunt WITH the Lion or they can choose to be devoured. Ball is in their court. MAGA!!

One of most interesting parts was toward end when Saudi foreign minister gave a basically a tutorial on 1) fighting in Yemen and 2) deeds vs words of Iran- very informative and impressive ( and no wonder Saudi’s disliked Obama and his crew so much , who were so totally ” in love ” with Iran’s words – It was all phony PR that served both parties’ dishonest interests. Boy , Obama sure earned that Nobel Peace prize ( sarcasm )

SD is right the canvas is ready. One more thing, 350 Billion is what in terms of “turnovers” as that money pays the welder who buys lunch, who buys his kids shoes etc for a 7 to 8 X of activity. Note, and that is all value added high end jobs here in the U.S. it is interesting we spent trillions defending that part of the world under GWB and trying to liberate them and getting rid of the despots. Perhaps it took the right POTUS willing to build relationships that is liked, and is a true Alpha that convinced the Saudi’s that they could finally say to themselves “I got this” and sell them the hardware to make it so.. Wow, that is a seed change of epic proportions and those watching the lame streams today won’t even see it let alone get it…

      DebbieUK TREX will be seen by our Energy sector as a God not because of his work as CEO of EXXON but his little additional nugget that is separate from the deal.

      From the article in the DailyMail:

      Separately, a CEO forum being held on the margins of the Trump-Salman meeting resulted in $22 billion in new deals in the oil and gas sector, according to the event’s organizers.
      Saudi Aramco announced agreements with U.S. companies including Weatherford, Jacobs, Honeywell, McDermott, and Nabors.
      The agreements will result in an unspecified number of new offshore Persian Gulf drilling rigs, at a time when the kingdom is pumping less oil to stabilize global prices.

      If kids aren’t encouraged to go into the Energy fields, we will fail our future generation! Forget college readiness. This is Career Readiness on steroids!

    • The only thing that marred the press conference was the idiot woman reporter at the end asking about the Russian investigations and the boisterous yelling of questions after the presser ended. No class, no intelligent thought. Waste of food clothing & shelter.
      Luckily it was just a few minutes & quickly shut down. Each yeller should lose their press credentials for calling out like a jackal; we would soon have decorum.

    Been thinking about this. Peace Through Strength. Our good president is making peace not war. Would not surprize me if he sets up the Arab Force and pulls our bases out of there as part of the deal. We might end up with a port/airbase on the Mediterranean Coast in Sinai or Israel. Anything can happen.

      Howie the sky is truly the limits of what is taken place here today! Would not shock me that after his 8 years that President al-Sissi commissions the building of a great pyramid for our Lion financed by SA in honor of his greatness and what he accomplished in the region. Our President will be seen as a savior and there is NOTHING that any of the animals in our country can do about it!

  25. Prior to today, I was leaning toward being anti SA. My gosh how I have been brain washed by the MSM as to who and what SA is about. 9/11 was funded in part by SA, but now I understand that it was not the Kingdom of Saudi, but by extremists wealthy people, who, like in America fund violent protestors.

    President Trump has changed the world with his vision, experience and talent. When I see his loyal cabinet work so hard to make President Trumps agenda come to pass, my heart is filled with respect and trust.

    Thank you to Sundance for this amazing site where I’m learning what really is happening in our complicated world. SA has made me so happy. They truly respected our President and showed the world how they also believed in, and put there money where their mouth is.

She never.stops.watching/listening/assessing. Ms. Melania may be the most important intelligence asset available to our Lion. Is she Bene Gesserit? I had no idea and I STILL don’t have words.

    What I saw in this press conference was the Saudi’s sensitivity to being viewed with suspicion by people in the West, and they want to counter that with proving they are partners and not enemies.

    This is really important. Over the last decade I myself have become suspicious of all Muslims due to radical Islamic terrorism. Americans aren’t familiar enough with Muslim beliefs or customs to know when someone is moderate vs radical, until the bombs go off.

    In my head I know that there are many Muslims who like America, but my default is to be suspicious of all Muslims. The Saudis know this, and a reform effort to counter the violent jihad movement is welcome. They are more able to spot subtle differences in attitudes to spot radicalization.

    I say give them a chance but follow Reagan’s motto: Trust but verify.
