Boeing Expects 737 Max Costs Will Surpass $18 Billion

Westlake Legal Group 29boeing1-facebookJumbo Boeing Expects 737 Max Costs Will Surpass $18 Billion Company Reports Calhoun, David L Boeing Company Boeing 737 Max Groundings and Safety Concerns (2019) Aviation Accidents, Safety and Disasters Airlines and Airplanes

Boeing on Wednesday said the costs associated with the grounding of the 737 Max were likely to surpass $18 billion, a significant increase over earlier forecasts.

The new estimate, announced during Boeing’s quarterly earnings report, is the company’s most recent approximation of just how expensive it will be to return the Max to service, compensate airline customers and restart the shuttered 737 factory.

Boeing continues to grapple with the fallout from the crashes of two Max jets in 2018 and 2019, which killed 346 people, leading to the worldwide grounding of the plane in March. In addition to the rising costs, the company is contending with a new chief executive, the temporary shutdown of the 737 factory and a range of challenges in other parts of the business.

Boeing on Wednesday said that the costs associated with shutting down and restarting the factory would amount to some $4 billion. The decision to temporarily halt production of the Max was only made last month, and Boeing had not previously given guidance on what the move would cost.

The company also said that the cost of compensating airlines that have suffered lost sales as a result of the grounding of the Max was now expected to reach $8.3 billion, up from a previous estimate of $5.6 billion. That figure represents a mixture of cash payments to airlines, as well as discounts on future sales.

And Boeing said that as a result of the grounding, which has lasted nearly a year now, it expected the overall cost to produce the 737 Max to rise to $6.3 billion in the years ahead, up from an earlier estimate of $3.6 billion.

In total, the anticipated costs now equal more than $18.6 billion, or nearly 20 percent of Boeing’s annual sales before the Max was grounded.

The Max crisis continued to weigh on the company’s financial results. Revenue for the quarter was $17.9 billion, down 37 percent from the same time a year earlier, before the jet was grounded.

Boeing also said it would incur a charge of $410 million as a result of its botched rocket launch late last year, when a space capsule it designed for NASA failed to reach the correct orbit.

This was the company’s first quarterly earnings report with David L. Calhoun at the helm, following the ouster of the previous chief executive, Dennis A. Muilenburg.

Since taking over this month, Mr. Calhoun has tried to set himself apart from Mr. Muilenburg, who was pushed out after alienating airline customers and the Federal Aviation Administration with overly optimistic projections about when the Max would return to service.

“We recognize we have a lot of work to do,” Mr. Calhoun said in a statement. “We are focused on returning the 737 Max to service safely and restoring the long-standing trust that the Boeing brand represents with the flying public. We are committed to transparency and excellence in everything we do.”

There is still no precise timeline for the return of the Max. Last week, Boeing said it did not expect regulators to approve the plane to fly until June or July, though that estimate was conservative. If regulators do not find any additional problems with the plane, the Max could return to service before then, though new issues cropped up earlier in the process.

The company has enjoyed rare bits of good news in recent weeks. It successfully completed the first flight test of the 777X, its new wide-body jet. And the trade deal that the White House struck with China included a commitment for the sale of new American aircraft to Chinese customers.

Yet Boeing still faces enormous challenges. The grounding of the Max is costing the company many billions of dollars, and costs are still rising. The fatal crashes and a cascade of damning revelations have badly damaged Boeing’s reputation, and the company’s own research shows 40 percent of regular travelers are unwilling to fly the Max. Other Boeing programs, including its work for NASA and the United States military, are behind schedule.

The Max is Boeing’s most important product, representing hundreds of billions of dollars in expected future sales. But just over a year after it was introduced in 2017, a Max crashed off the coast of Indonesia, after a new automated system triggered based on data from a faulty sensor. Less than five months later, a second Max crashed in Ethiopia under similar circumstances, leading to the worldwide grounding.

That has thrust Boeing into the biggest crisis in its history and led to the temporary shuttering of its 737 factory in Renton, Wash. Boeing has developed a software update and has been working with regulators to win approval to return the plane to service. But the grounding is now likely to last a year.

British police use Dolly Parton Challenge to find wanted suspects

British police jumped on the social media bandwagon Tuesday by taking part in the viral Dolly Parton Challenge, creating memes of suspects wanted for a number of offenses, including burglary.

UK’S BORIS JOHNSON WELCOMES REPLACING OBAMA-ERA IRAN NUCLEAR AGREEMENT WITH ‘TRUMP DEAL’

Cleveland Police UK in northeastern England shared four images of 32-year-old Scott Mizsei, deeming each appropriate for his profiles on LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram or Tinder.

“Have you seen wanted man Scott Mizsei, 32? He is wanted in connection with a number of offences including aggravated burglary,” the tweet said. “Do not approach him if you see him & call 101 with info RE his whereabouts. Thanks @DurhamPolice for inspiring our post!”

The department nodded to the Durham Constabulary in the neighboring county, which used the Dolly Parton Challenge last week to ask the public for help finding Paul Bishop.

“Have you seen Paul Bishop? We’d like to speak to him in connection with a suspected burglary which occurred in December,” the tweet said. “If you have seen him or know where he is, please call Peterlee Police team on 101.”

Police departments on both sides of the pond in the United Kingdom, the United States and even Canada have participated in the social media craze by sharing images of police dogs in their K9 units.

Last Friday, Durham Police K9 showed off police dog Spike, tagging Cleveland Police UK and NYPD Dog Section to do the same. Police departments in Sarasota, Fla., Irving, Texas, Fort Collins, Colo., and Vancouver, Canada all have shared four-way templates of dogs who help them protect and serve.

Trump scorches Bolton, says ‘fired’ hawk would have started ‘World War Six’

In a pair of white-hot tweets Wednesday morning, President Trump slammed John Bolton over the recent leak of details from his forthcoming book that complicated the president’s ongoing impeachment trial — and needled his former national security adviser over his notoriously hawkish reputation on foreign policy.

“For a guy who couldn’t get approved for the Ambassador to the U.N. years ago, couldn’t get approved for anything since, ‘begged’ me for a non Senate [sic] approved job, which I gave him despite many saying ‘Don’t do it, sir,’ takes the job, mistakenly says ‘Libyan Model’ on T.V., and … many more mistakes of judgement [sic], gets fired because frankly, if I listened to him, we would be in World War Six by now, and goes out and IMMEDIATELY writes a nasty & untrue book,” Trump tweeted. “All Classified National Security. Who would do this?”

GOP DEVELOPS AGGRESSIVE ‘PLAN B’ IN IMPEACHMENT TRIAL, AS SEVERAL DEMS APPEAR TO SUPPORT ACQUITTAL: SOURCE

Trump’s comments come after a New York Times report earlier this week said Bolton wrote in his book that Trump linked aid for Ukraine to his request for Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate 2020 rival Joe Biden and his family for corruption. Those developments are at the heart of the impeachment trial.

Democrats have said that connection was an abuse of power aimed at boosting Trump’s reelection prospects. Trump’s defense team has said that there was no such connection, and even if there was, Trump had good reason to think the Bidens should have been investigated for corruption and that such a “quid pro quo” is common in U.S. foreign policy.

A handful of moderate Republican senators, including Sens. Susan Collins, R-Maine, Mitt Romney, R-Utah and Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, have expressed interest in hearing from witnesses in the impeachment trial — and especially Bolton, after the book leak — to the chagrin of Trump and GOP leadership. Democrats would need four GOP defections to call witnesses.

WHOOPS: BIDEN CAMP TOUTS UKRAINE ACTIVIST WHO CALLED HUNTER BIDEN’S ACTIONS ‘VERY BAD’

Bolton has indicated that he would testify before the Senate impeachment trial if subpoenaed, but the Republican leadership is doing its best to prevent that from happening.

Despite the fact Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., privately said early Tuesday that he wasn’t sure there were enough Republican votes to block witnesses in the impeachment trial, Tuesday night, a Senate leadership source told Fox News that Republicans were assessing two options to prevent witnesses, in a vote likely to happen near the end of this week.

One plan is to amend any resolution calling for a particular witness to also include a package of witnesses that assuredly wouldn’t win enough support in the Senate. For example, if the Democrats seek to call Bolton, Republicans might subpoena Hunter Biden over his lucrative board position in Ukraine, and Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., over his inconsistent statements concerning his panel’s contacts with the whistleblower at the center of the impeachment probe.

Another option, the congressional leadership source told Fox News, is for the White House to assert executive privilege to block witnesses, including Bolton. The administration could head to court to obtain an emergency injunction against his testimony, citing national security concerns.

GOP Rep. Doug Collins confirms bid for Georgia Senate

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6126855374001_6126857897001-vs GOP Rep. Doug Collins confirms bid for Georgia Senate Tyler Olson fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/georgia fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives fox-news/politics/2020-senate-races fox news fnc/politics fnc article 314104c5-7493-5dfc-812e-db30201bcf74

Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., confirmed on “Fox & Friends” Wednesday morning that he will run for U.S. Senate in a November special election, challenging incumbent GOP Sen. Kelly Loeffler, who was appointed to her seat last year by Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Politico originally reported Collins was planning to announce a run, but Collins confirmed his plans on Fox News.

Collins will join a special election field that includes Loeffler and two Democrats, with a third Democrat likely to announce a run as well. The special election rules pit all candidates against each other – regardless of party – with a runoff in January if no candidate secures a majority of votes.

Collins’ entrance into the race makes a runoff far more likely, which could potentially decide the balance of the Senate.

Collins, a staunch supporter of President Trump during the impeachment saga, is likely to try to ride the president’s popularity within the Republican Party to victory. Trump favored Collins over Loeffler last year when Gov. Kemp was deciding who would replace the retiring Sen. Johnny Isakson, also a Republican.

Loeffler, a wealthy co-owner of the WNBA franchise Atlanta Dream, has said she will spend $20 million to retain her seat.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Boeing Expects 737 Max Costs Will Surpass $18 Billion

The company also said that the cost of compensating airlines that have suffered lost sales as a result of the grounding of the Max was now expected to reach $8.3 billion, up from a previous estimate of $5.6 billion.

Oklahoma district attorney auctioning counterfeiter’s classic Ford Mustangs

A six-pack of classic Ford Mustangs is being auctioned in Oklahoma, but buyers should definitely beware.

The cars were seized by the Pottawatomie County (Oklahoma) District Attorney’s office during an investigation into a car cloning operation run by a lawyer, Kermit Milburn, who committed suicide in 2016 while facing accusations he tried to pass off counterfeit Shelby Mustangs with phony Vehicle Identification Numbers (VINs) as authentic at a car auction in Indianapolis.

Turning run of the mill cars like Mustangs into “clones” of valuable models is a relatively common practice and typically legal as long as a seller doesn’t misrepresent them. For instance, one of the long-lost Ford Mustangs used in the making of the Steve McQueen film “Bullitt” was discovered in a junkyard by a custom car builder looking for a donor vehicle to turn into a replica of the “Eleanor” Mustang from “Gone in 60 Seconds.”

According to News 9, the cars are from Milburn’s personal collection and have been in storage ever since. They’re now being auctioned online, with most of the proceeds earmarked for the attorney’s office and county jail.

The cars include what appear to be two 1970 Mustang Boss 302s, a 1970 red Shelby GT500 Convertible, an unfinished 1970 Shelby GT500 that’s either mid-restoration or mid-transformation, a 1970 Mustang Convertible that hasn’t had any work done on it yet and a 2006 Mustang GT modified with some Shelby-style parts.

(Proxibid)

District Attorney Allan Grubb said they believe at least some of the cars may be authentic, but can’t vouch for their provenance and have issued new state titles and VINs, which experts say can lower their value by putting a cloud over them, even if they turn out to be the real deal.

The auction house recommends that bidders perform their own inspections. The odometer in the red Shelby, for instance, is set to zero, which could mean it doesn’t have its original engine or isn’t a Shelby at all. If it is real, it could be worth well over $100,000, while the Boss 302s are potentially valued at $50,000 or more.

Most wanted female terrorist lives in freedom in Jordan despite extradition request for bombing that killed Americans

Ahlam Ahmad al-Tamimi is the most wanted woman in the world, with a $5 million bounty for information that leads to her arrest or conviction.

Tamimi is accused by U.S. officials of conspiring to use–and using–a weapon of mass destruction, and masterminding a brazen Hamas terrorist attack that killed 15 – including eight children and two Americans, one of whom was pregnant.

Despite being on the run from American authorities, Tamimi has been hiding in plain sight for years– under the eye of one of the United States’ longest and closest allies in the Middle East: Jordan.

Despite requests from Washington, the Kingdom has been publicly steadfast in its refusal to extradite Tamimi, who at just 20 years old masterminded the suicide bombing on the Sbarro pizza restaurant in Jerusalem three weeks before planes struck the U.S on Sept. 11, 2001.

The attack claimed the lives of two Americans, 15-year-old Malki Roth, and Shoshana Yehudit Greenbaum, who was five months pregnant with her first child at the time. In addition to the two murdered Americans and the unborn infant, four more U.S. nationals were among the some 122 injured. At least one of the victims remains in a vegetative state.

For Roth’s parents, the fight for some semblance of justice has already been a long one – and the bumpy road stretches on.

“We are in touch with members of Congress and U.S. government officials. The situation is fluid, and there are some indications of meaningful progress,” Malki’s father, Arnold Roth, told Fox News from Jerusalem. “Our sense is that the law and enforcement parts of the U.S. government have done everything that needs to be done to set the stage. What is preventing extradition is the political will to see the Sbarro bomber brought to justice.”

Two years after the Jerusalem attack, Tamimi pled guilty in an Israeli court for her pivotal role and received 16 life sentences and an additional 250 years behind bars.

U.S. federal laws also came into play because Tamimi, who was born in Australia, held American citizenship at the time.

In 2011, Tamimi was part of a prisoner swap in which Israel released more than 1000 Palestinian prisoners – many of whom were serving life sentences for assaults on Israelis – for the return of one Israeli soldier, Gilad Shalit, who was captured by Hamas four years earlier.

“It was important to Israelis to show the importance put on that one soldier’s life, and how much we were willing to sacrifice to bring him home,” one Israeli intelligence official, who requested anonymity, told Fox News of the exchange.

Most of the Hamas operatives and sympathizers released were sent to Gaza and the West Bank. Tamimi and her husband were among a handful relocated to neighboring Jordan, under varying terms of restriction.

But seemingly no one anticipated the terrorist’s rise to public fame.

Tamimi, who is now 39, refers to herself as a journalist and was purportedly given free rein to host her own program on a local TV station broadcast from the city of Ramallah, focused on “occupation practices.” Moreover, she was left unencumbered to bolster a heroic image, of which she has dedicated fan pages, which claim that she “holds a medal of honor” for her “life imprisonment in Zion prisons.”

Tamimi has also given several interviews detailing and illuminating her role, admitting that she selected the restaurant because it was known to be a favorite for families, and expressing her delight that so many children were slain.

“I was really shocked at the American behavior,” Tamimi told an Al Jazeera reporter from her home in the Jordanian capital of Amman in 2017, detailing how she was suddenly arrested by a branch of Interpol and spent one night in jail before successfully fighting extradition through the Jordanian courts. “The U.S. government, who is always trying to solve the problems of the world, has decided to go after one woman for no obvious reasons.”

Several employees of Al-Quds TV told Fox News that they are no longer operating. The diplomatic spotlight on the case – and the hefty bounty on her head – has prompted Tamimi to slide under the radar in recent months.

“She doesn’t appear on TV. The last time she popped up was March 2019,” noted Yotam Feldner, director of Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) TV. “Last time her Facebook was active was in 2011.”

Yet for the Roth family, the notion of their daughter’s killer living a life of freedom and open glee renders more than just a jar to the stomach.

“It is audacious that she was allowed to host a program solidly identified with her and what she embodies – unhindered for nearly five years. We are talking about a program that places terrorists on a pedestal,” conjectured Arnold Roth. “She has always maintained a noisy social media presence. But that part of her noisy activity is currently in abeyance after we were instrumental in getting Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter to, one by one, shut down her known accounts.”

The U.S. government first filed under seal a criminal complaint against Tamimi in 2013. The criminal complaint was publicly unsealed in March 2017. But almost three years later, and she still remains free.

The Jordanian government has argued that Tamimi cannot be extradited on the grounds that there is no treaty with the U.S. While the late King Hussein, who died in 1999, is reported to have signed the extradition treaty on March 28, 1995, it was not signed into law by the Jordanian parliament.

“Legally, Jordan’s parliament has to ratify a treaty, much the same way that the U.S. Congress has to ratify any treaty signed by the president in order for it to have the force of law,” explained Josh Lipowsky, a senior researcher at the Counter Extremism Project (CEP). “Nonetheless, King Abdullah could choose to honor the extradition request as a goodwill gesture to the United States or if he believes it is in Jordan’s best interests.”

He stressed that even without a formally ratified treaty, King Abdullah “can override the courts’ decision not to extradite Tamimi” and that it is “a matter of weighing potential damage to the U.S.-Jordan relationship versus the threat of upsetting some on the Jordanian street.”

“For now, the risk is low for King Abdullah to keep Tamimi in Jordan, but that could change if the United States were to threaten economic sanctions against Jordan,” Lipowsky continued. “The passage of the Omnibus Spending Bill in December threatens to sever financial aid to any country that ignores a U.S. extradition request of somebody indicted for a criminal offense that carries a life sentence. Tamimi’s 2017 U.S. indictment carries the penalty of life imprisonment or death, which means Jordanian aid could be threatened if her extradition is not carried out.”

Several sources in both the U.S. and Israel acknowledged that the extradition request does put the Hashemite Kingdom – a strong and necessary ally in the tumultuous region – in a difficult position given that an estimated 70 percent of those in Jordan are of Palestinian origin. Thus, King Abdullah needs to maintain popularity with the overwhelming majority both from a political and security standpoint.

Jordan has made extradition exceptions in years past. In 1995, Jordan allowed the U.S. to extract Eyad Ismoil, a Jordanian national, to stand trial over his role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

The U.S. State Department declined to comment specifically on the Tamimi case, but on its website denotes that it “deeply values its long history of cooperation and friendship with Jordan,” a diplomatic relationship that dates back to 1949.

“In light of ongoing regional unrest, the United States has helped Jordan maintain its stability and prosperity through economic and military assistance and through close political cooperation,” the bilateral relations fact sheet states.

The U.S. is Jordan’s single largest provider of assistance, “providing over $1.7 billion in 2017, including $1.3 billion in bilateral foreign assistance and over $200 million in Department of Defense support.”

Yet some critics have pointed to the notion that despite the huge sums of U.S. taxpayer dollars dished to Jordan, they still refuse to hand over Tamimi, who masterminded the death of an American child.

“The Kingdom freely takes American foreign aid, relies upon Washington to safeguard it militarily and claims they are a modern state that respects the rule of law. No one, not even Tamimi, denies her role in perpetrating these mass bombings that killed and injured U.S. citizens,” contended Nitsana Darshan-Leitner of the Israeli law firm Shurat HaDin, which represents some of the Sbarro bombing victims. “Just as the Trump administration is pressing every ally from Europe to Canada to NATO to start to fulfill obligations, Jordan must be forcefully pressed and compelled.”

According to the Israeli intelligence source, Tamimi is just one of many in a “well-known” family line accused of waging war in the bitter battle between Palestinians and Israelis.

Among the clan of cousins is said to be that of Ahed Tamimi, a 19-year-old Palestinian activist who has gained international notoriety in recent years for her bold confrontations with Israeli soldiers. In late 2017, she was detained for slapping a soldier and subsequently spent seven months in prison, her signature curls and youthful face becoming a symbol for the proclaimed Palestinian “freedom fight.”

Last April, her younger brother, Mohammed Tamimi, then 15, was arrested along with their cousin Muayyid in overnight raids in response to “rioting and other disturbances.”

A spokesperson for the U.S. Department of Justice told Fox News that while they cannot discuss the next steps in terms of specifics regarding the extradition request, it remains a matter of “particular importance.”

The Australian and Jordanian embassies in Washington, D.C. did not respond to requests for comment.

But for the Roth parents, it’s a nightmare they are compelled to fight through every day – and they are determined not to stop in their quest to see the woman who wears American blood on her hands have her day in U.S. court.

“Thinking about our precious Malki, looking at photos of her, even just hearing her name, is unspeakably painful even nearly 20 years on,” said her mother, Frimet Roth. “I force myself to post pieces about her periodically so she won’t be forgotten and so that the evil massacre that she perished in won’t be either.”

Frimet remembers everything about her daughter, who will forever be a smiling 15-year-old in her heart. Her talents as a classical flutist, her voluntary work caring for children with severe disabilities, including her sister, 10 years her junior.

“Malki’s love and devotion to Haya, our profoundly disabled child, was positively astounding. Malki also found time to be a loving daughter and granddaughter as well. We often walked arm-in-arm together. She usually ended our phone conversations with ‘I love you,’ which I distinctly recall she did the last time we spoke,” Frimet added. “Just one hour before she was snatched from us forever.”
