“Strategic Winning” – Singapore Airlines Signs $14 Billion Deal With Boeing During White House Diplomatic Visit…

“MAGAnomics” is about gaining serious economic benefits for the middle-class; the “Trump Doctrine” is about securing the national security interests of the U.S. through economic leverage and economic partnerships; put them together and you have Boeing Airline Manufacturer signing a deal with Singapore Airlines worth almost $14 billion and providing 70,000 U.S. Jobs.

During the diplomatic White House visit between Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and U.S. President Donald Trump the leaders of Boeing and Singapore Airlines signed the deal. Watch:


But wait, there’s a strategic aspect to this deal.  In the background, and generally invisible to an oblivious U.S. media, you’ll note the Trump administration (Treasury Secretary Mnuchin and Secretary of State Tillerson) are  on the verge of quashing a deal between Boeing and Iran.

“The Obama administration’s nuclear agreement with Iran paved the way for U.S. aerospace corporation Boeing to ink a deal with Iran’s state-controlled airline, Iran Air, which was recently caught using its commercial planes to ferry Iranian militants to regional hotspots.” –link

As we noted when President Trump outlined the Strategy Toward Iran, the labeling of IRG members (Iran Republican Guard) as terror entities opened the door for State and Treasury Depts to block Iranian economic activity.

The Boeing deal today, created between the U.S. and Singapore, fills a financial and jobs void created by a looming cancelled Boeing contract with Iran.

The Big Picture: All-in-all this is another great example of how President Trump, Secretary Tillerson, Secretary Mnuchin and Secretary Ross use economic leverage to enhance and secure U.S. national security interests.

See how that works?

…. Strategic Winning !

      I apprectiate that the five remaining ex-presidents gathered together last week. It must have been one huge pity party backstage. But there they stood….thinking that they all did great jobs. I suggest that they all should find a hobby (Bush has become an artist) and stay out of he limelight. However, if they keep up their dog and pony shows together, I suggest that every teachers from Maine to Hawaii use it as a example of those who don’t understand the Constitution and how important it is to Americans….there is a lot more that can be taught about them but that is one of the most important.

    Our President is a complete American Loving Patriot! Amazing how he was able to get Singapore to purchase nearly $14 Billion dollars worth of airlines from us. 70K Americans will be employed because of the deal that was signed earlier today.

    We just recently shipped our first ever shipment of Fuel to India. This is also HUGE because India relied on Iran for a majority of their fuel needs. The Indians realize that in the next 3 to 6 months, our President will do to Iran what he has successfully done to NK. He is telling our European allies to make all the money they can because eventually, the faucet will be closed with Iran.

    It is absolutely breathtaking to see all of this play out right in front of our eyes.


    From the article linked above:

    India is set to emerge as a key market for American crude exports in coming months, as refineries in that country are ramping up “test” purchases of US grades to diversify their imports.

    US exports recently set a weekly record with nearly 2 MMbbl of crude a day sent overseas. But shipments to India have been rare, with just a few deliveries since the US lifted its ban on crude exports in late 2015.

    Indian refineries are starting to increase purchases as the country seeks to secure more supply from outside the Middle East. Refiners are testing both US sweet and sour crudes in their facilities, a common practice when importing crude from new sources.

    In June, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Donald Trump met and discussed energy exports to India. Since then the Modi administration has been encouraging more crude imports by waiving some shipping requirements.

    Indian refiners Indian Oil Corp, Bharat Petroleum Corp and Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited were given a special permission by the shipping ministry to import oil from the United States until March.

    “They’ve been stepping up to be a sizeable importer; they’re looking to diversify away from the Middle East,” said John Kilduff, partner at energy hedge fund Again Capital LLC in New York.

    One supertanker carrying nearly 2 MMbbl discharged in India earlier this month, according to Eikon shipping data, while two other vessels carrying a combined 3 MMbbl are set to arrive in November.

    Prior to this, US crude rarely went to India, with only one month this year—February—showing deliveries, according to US EIA data through July.

      I was just at a wedding of an Indian friend. The family and he are very strong Christians and in keeping with their culture, the marriage was partially arranged by the families. He was raised in the US and she has never been in America before a couple weeks ago. Family members from several states and many from India were at the wedding. One of the impressions I came away with was just how well spoken and cosmopolitan the Indian people at the wedding were. About 20 years ago, I attended a church with many Indian members. Most of them dressed in Early Salvation Army (They could afford better) and seemed to have no care for personal appearance, although they were all very nice people. It seems that their culture seems to have matured greatly in the last several years. I understand that capitalism has taken root in many areas of the country. Sadly, the current Prime Minister is strongly anti-Christian and will probably take the nation into some reversion. I may be completely wrong, but this is my impression from one experience.

      Flep, do you know how big the Iran order was?
      Will this just basically replace an already signed order in size…I only ask because airlines book sales when the contract is signed, as opposed to when the aircraft are delivered, so the Iran contract will be booked and will show as earnings for stock value purposes, the cancellation will require a write down on their earnings when the order gets cancelled which will clip the stock price pretty good.
      Simply put is Boeing actually better off here, and would those jobs have been added to fill the Iran order anyways?
      Sounds like a good order though.

        Having worked for Boeing for 30 years, I think it’s probably not new hires. The company goes through major boom and bust cycles because people are laid off when times are lean. But having a contract that keeps the current workforce intact instead of shoved out the door is essentially the same economically as hiring new people, because they’d be new hires somewhere else after they were fired.

        It’s also good for Boeing because, even if their management can’t seem to figure it out, it’s good to keep the tribal knowledge within the company…

              Cruz, Rubio, and Jindal, all other qualities and qualifications aside, were premature. They saw one green upstart ride the identity politics wave into office, so they all thought they would jump on that, being the “first [fill in the blank] president.

    Singapore Airlines (SQ) is arguably the best major airline in the world. During the 90’s I was a “Preferred Passenger”, having flown the SFO to SIN route (SQ-1) via HKG many times in business class. Lots of air miles and I was eligible to use the Silver Kris lounges worldwide. The SK lounge in Changi Airport was like a first class hotel, great food and ambiance…you can even get a “sleeper” room to catch a few winks. There were times when we’d joke about “moving in” to the lounge it was so luxurious. The SQ airline crew and staff were the most passenger friendly of any airline and I’ve flown on most all of the worlds majors. SQ would send me a birthday card and a small gift every year…serious customer appreciation. For years SQ was buying Airbus equipment and it’s now aging. Upgrading the fleet to the new Boeing Dream Liners will pay off big time as they are more Fuel efficient and a very robust aircraft. Makes me want to saddle up and hit the skies again.

We even had METAL UTENSILS for our meals, which were quite decent. They also have a great safety record.

    Hmm.. it looks like the 777-9 will have just enough range to make it from SFO to Changi.. NO way from LAX. Although with 300 miles to spare on the SFO route I doubt they’d take the risk on Westerly flights. The 787-10 is the newest, biggest 787 and again it doesn’t quite have the range. I’m surprised that Singapore Air didn’t go with the 777-8 and the 787-9 but I guess they’ve committed themselves to size and a fuel stopover in Japan.

    Interesting, as Singapore Air was the launch customer for the 380. I wonder what they Euros are thinking about this.

      A former top Clinton administration diplomat who used his political sway to garner support for the Iran nuclear deal apparently was being bankrolled the entire time by Boeing — which is set to make billions off a jet deal with Tehran now that sanctions have been lifted.

      Thomas Pickering, who also served as co-chairman of the board examining the Benghazi attack response, publicly pushed for the nuclear deal before its approval last year. He did so by penning op-eds, writing to high-level officials and even testifying before Congress.

      With the deal in place, Boeing has since moved forward on a $25 billion deal with Iran Air made possible by the nuclear agreement.

      While Pickering never denied being on Boeing’s payroll during the talks, he didn’t regularly disclose it either, according to a new report in The Daily Beast. And that’s the problem, transparency advocates say.

      “In Pickering’s case, he has a direct connection to Boeing, which I think should be disclosed,” Neil Gordon, an investigator for the Project on Government Oversight, told The Daily Beast. “I think it’s necessary for the public debate. It’s necessary for the public to fully realize the participants’ financial interests. Some of them might have a direct financial stake in a particular outcome.”

      Pickering was a former top State Department official in the Bill Clinton administration, and before that ambassador to Russia. He also served as ambassador to the United Nations, Israel and elsewhere in prior administrations.

      When Pickering testified before the House Armed Services Committee on June 16, 2014, the biography provided to committee members touted his military and government services but did not list his business ties.

      Pickering also sent a July 7, 2015 letter to lawmakers urging them to back the nuclear deal but reportedly did not make his association with Boeing known. The letter was cited by the media, lawmakers and the White House in the push to sell the nuclear deal to the public.

      The reason for the Airbus-Bombardier partnership is to avoid a 300% duty-tariff that would be imposed if the planes final assembly were done in Canada.

      Boeing complained to the US Department of Commerce (DOC) that the Bombardier planes were being sold at an absurdly low price due to Canadian Government subsidies. This resulted in US DOC recommending that a 300% import duty-tariff be imposed on the import (sale) of each plane into the US.

      With the Airbus-Bombardier Merger, final assembly of the C-Series narrow-body planes will be at the Airbus USA Mobile, Alabama plant thereby avoiding the US 300% duty-tariff.

      In the end it will result in more Jobs in the US.!

        Thanks Tex…Boeing management is pissed and claims the tariffs will still apply, but I dont think that is their call….more big picture this could be a big threat to boeings regional jet market…embraer and bombardier make exceptional regional and corporate planes.
        With Airbus now acting as a protectorate to Bombardier, and with their scale to produce, reduce costs and leverage their purchasers, Boeing is gonna pop a vein.
        The article mentions they may need to take a run at aquiring Embraer to compete in this space. We shall see.
        Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Let the trade wars begin. Im Canadian, so I have a little interest in this particular issue.
        Maybe Trudeau will order Uranium exports halted for national security issues. The US produces about 3.5m /lbs annually, and consumes 44m/lbs…much of it imported from Canada…lets hope everybody cools their jets and remembers that we have the most beneficial mutual trade arrangement in the world before things get stupid.

          “Final assembly” in the US won’t negate the fact of the Canadian govt’s subsidies on the manufacturing of all the aircraft parts pre assembly.
          The value of those constituent parts means Boeing has an ongoing case against Canada.
          The parts manufacture is of greater value than the assembly, which is labour only.

      We had a tour of the WA facility in the ’90s, and attended an outside “expo” in St. Louis more recently. Really neat. Thanks for posting the video.

    What an absolutely amazing President. Those five that were on stage the other night should be ashamed of what they have done to this country.

    Wow. I never really grasped what it truly meant when then-candidate Trump said we’d get tired of winning. I had no idea the depth of winning he had in mind to do and do it it on a worldwide basis to right this ship back on its rightful course and he was going to do it at warp speed.

    I thank God Sundance has thoroughly explained it to me and all the Treepers who have added to my knowledge. My mind cannot fathom what is to come in the next 7 years. Only President Trump knows. That way he won’t be sidetracked.

    He’s a steamrollers. Get out of the way or attempted to stop at your own risk.

    I will continue to say we are looking at the greatest US President in the history of our country – bar none.
