Lockheed Martin CEO Tells Trump Company Plans to Lower F-35 Costs, Add 1,800 US Jobs

Lockheed Martin CEO Tells Trump Company Plans to Lower F-35 Costs, Add 1,800 US Jobs After meeting with President-elect Donald Trump on Friday, Lockheed Martin CEO Marillyn Hewson said the company is close to a deal to bring down the cost of its F-35 aircraft, and will also be adding 1,800 jobs to its Fort Worth plant.

"I certainly share his views that we need to get the best capability to our men and women in uniform, and we have to get it at the lowest possible price," Hewson told reporters in Trump Tower.

Trump has been critical of the company recently, saying last month on Twitter that the F-35 program’s costs were “out of control.” He also said he was asking Boeing if it could offer a less expensive alternative.

“I’m glad I had the opportunity to tell him that we are close to a deal that will bring the cost down significantly from the previous lot of aircraft to the next lot of aircraft and moreover it’s going to bring a lot of jobs to the United States,” Hewson said.

She then briefly discussed plans for adding jobs to the company’s Fort Worth, Texas facility where the F-35 is being built.

“In fact we are going to increase our jobs in Fort Worth by 1,800 jobs and when you think about the supply chain across 45 states in the U.S. it’s going to be thousands and thousands of jobs,” Hewson said. “And I also had the opportunity to give him some ideas on things we think we can do to continue to drive the cost down on the F-35 program, so it was a great meeting.”
Vatican opens Palestinian embassy ahead of critical summit in Paris

By Robert Spencer / Jihad Watch


A Palestinian state would, like Gaza, be simply another jihad base from which “Palestinians” would launch new attacks against the State of Israel. That the Pope would validate it in this way is an unconscionable granting of the Catholic Church’s imprimatur both to the fictional “Palestinian people,” who were invented by the KGB and Yasir […]

Cruz, Graham Join Forces to Defund United Nations

By Sandy Fitzgerald / NEWSMAX

Sens. Ted Cruz and Lindsey Graham were fierce rivals last year for the presidential nomination, but said Thursday they're now joining forces to achieve one common goal — defunding the United Nations unless it rescinds its Security Council's vote against allowing Israeli West Bank settlements.

"What brings us together today is an issue that I think really unites Republicans but also unites Americans, and that's standing with Israel," Cruz told Fox News' "Fox and Friends" program. "If you look in the last month what [President] Barack Obama has done, I think it's been nothing short of shameful. It has been striking out against Israel, really showing his true beliefs."

Cruz said he and Graham will file their legislation to defund the U.N. on Thursday, and hope to "end it all unless and until they reverse this anti-Israel resolution."

Also appearing on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" program, Graham noted that 22 percent of the money for the United Nations comes from the American taxpayers, and he does not think "It's a good investment for an American taxpayer to give money to an organization that condemns the only democracy in the Mideast, takes the settlement issue and says that's the most important and only issue in term of impediments to peace."

HAW: First sign of enhanced U.S.-Russia relations under Trump: An invite to Syria talks which Obama was POINTEDLY excluded from
By Pamela Geller / THE GELLER REPORT

Russia has invited the incoming Trump administration to Syrian peace talks it is sponsoring later this month with Turkey and Iran, part of a process from which the Obama administration pointedly has been excluded.

This is really rich.

Remember how the left beat us about the head with Bush? How could we forget? Bush wasn’t liked. Bush didn’t play nice with other countries. Bush didn’t know how to get along (even though our standing had never been so high). Obama was suave, sophisticated and charismatic. Our enemies would drop

their arms and fall into our arms when Obama smiled and calypso-walked into the room. The past eight years of unprecedented foreign policy failures are a testament to Obama’s “magic.” Obama actually had his Secretary of State give Russia a “reset button.” And reset they did.

Relations have been this cold since Khrushchev.

Now the left is excoriating Trump for getting along with Russia and other world leaders in a way Obama only dreamed of.

Just a Thought...
On So-Called' Celebrities
By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor

And so the celebrity snub of Donald Trump's inauguration continues. The newest is Jennifer Holliday who yesterday pulled out of performing after she committed to doing so out of fear her fans will desert her...oh boo hoo...just another gutless liberal wonder.

But what I want to know is first...who cares...and second who gives a flying you-know-what about what any of these 'so-called' celebrities think for the truth is most of them are dumber than a box of rocks.

And most are overpaid, untalented, blowhards who amass fortunes off the stupidity of the masses who think what they say and do matters...guess does NOT. They are heroes and persons of importance in their own minds and in the minds of their clueless followers only...persons who have NOTHING better to do than worship idiots like 'so-called' celebrities.

You want to know who really about our troops, our veterans, our police, doctors who save lives, teachers who actually teach and NOT indoctrinate, our Judeo-Christian clergy, to name but just a few.

Screw the 'so-called' celebrities...they are NOTHING in the scope of things...just a diversion used by the media to steer us away from the things and the people that do matter...period.
