Forum Post: Yet More American Jobs Lost! American Airplane Manufacturing Company Is Getting Shafted

Yet another American airplane manufacturing company is getting shafted by the Obama regime. But this time the jobs are being outsourced to Brazil to a company with Soros connections. There are links at the bottom to a few source articles.

“Any president whose actions so consistently refute his own words must have deep contempt for the intelligence of the American public.” The obama administration told U.S. owned Hawker Beechcraft earlier this week they are being excluded from bidding on the US Air Force contract for a light attack aircraft. That leaves Brazilian owned Embraer as the likely recipient of the lucrative deal.

I found this one hard to believe so I did a little research. It was tough because this was completely ignored by the main stream media. The information is out there on several conservative sites. Please see the two articles linked below.

This is a double slap in the face of the United States. At a time when jobs, the economy, and security are the most critical priorities for our country, the Obama administration decides to send a defense contract to a foreign owned company.

This has to be the stupidest thing this administration has done to date. This is not just a dumb decision, it is a perfect example of why this president is such a poor leader. He talks about wanting jobs. He says we need to force companies to repatriate billions of dollars that Americans keep overseas. He wants to raise taxes so he can spend billions on stimulus that does nothing to stimulate anything. And when its time to act, he sends our tax dollars overseas at the expense of American jobs and income for an American company.

This is nothing more than a Chicago-style political pay back; but this time it is at the expense of our national security.

How much more damage will obama be allowed to do in the next 14 months? One of the lead stories in the media this week blasted congress for insider trading. If this contract goes to Embraer it will be a huge pay off to another George Soros company.

When will the 4th estate do its constitutionally protected job and expose the real obama to the American people?

We can no longer depend on the media to pass on any news that might be construed as negative towards the democrats. Please pass these articles to your friends to insure they get the information lacking from so much of todays liberal press.

It is very possible that Embraer may be better equipped for the job. There are clauses that any bidder has to fulfill. Without knowing those you are simply jumping the gun. And nowhere does it say that all defense contracts have to be awarded to domestic companies.

Obama has been on a mission since 2008 to destroy America. Even his own job czar (CEO of GE) is sending about all of their manufacturing jobs overseas

yeah war equipment profiteering is the way to save the country. you sir are a moron. the aircraft that hawker beechcraft wanted to sell us was not up to spec. idiot. sure lets buy the equipment from america but if america is putting shit equipment out because they think they will get the contract because they are american they are mistaken. of course i think we should nationalize the defense industry solve that problem straight away.

even to outsource it to another country it's bad enough but outsource it to your enemy is a bloody disgrace!

Lookie here ya would be witch, your source is inaccurate as far as the contract dollar amount, those planes are not being built for 355 million bucks. I'm equally sure if Obrotha does it, none of you care that NO FAWKING government contracts SHOULD ever be awarded to any non-American entities. That crap has been going on easily since the early 70's and it's just plain wrong. The money leaves the country largely untaxed.

Lookie here: Every news source is repeating 355 million dollars. If you have other data post it. Whether you choose to acknowledge it or not, this was a misrepresentation of the facts of the case. This leaves you two choices: start reading right to left or deal with it.
