Media and Democrats Begin Realizing – Trump’s Border Wall is Going To Happen…

It’s stunning when you think abut how political officials have so routinely lied, that people actually thought Donald Trump’s Southern Border Security Wall was a metaphor for something ‘less than’ an actual wall.

Candidate Trump did not state a metaphor on June 16th 2015, he stated an actual “big beautiful wall“.  Now, with his administration only a few days away from moving into the White House, various pundits, media and newsers’ are realizing: “oh snap, he really meant that”.

Well,….. DUH!

Not only does President Trump intend to build a wall across the U.S./Mexico southern border, he also plans to start on it right away.   90′ tall poured concrete and rebar reinforced panels, footed and set with solid steel supports.

[…]  Trump’s grand vision of a impenetrable barrier from the Pacific Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico — a physical monument to his hardline immigration policy — hasn’t dimmed, although some of the specifics have changed.  (CNN)

He’s a builder; it’s what he does.  He’s already explained this.

(Breitbart Understands) […] “When you understand that Mexico’s economy is dependent upon U.S. consumers, Donald Trump has all the cards he needs to play. On the trade negotiation side, I don’t think it’s that difficult for Donald Trump to convince Mexico that it’s in their best interest to reimburse us for building the wall,” Rep. Chris Collins (R-NY) explained to CNN.

Trump NeitoIt’s a bit rich to see the media that staunchly defended Barack Obama doubling the U.S. national debt in a single presidency — the media that thinks quibbles about deficit spending only come from heartless grinches looking for an excuse to defund social programs so they can enjoy watching poor people die — suddenly become deeply concerned about Trump launching the border wall project before the last shrink-wrapped pallet of cash has been delivered to the White House by the government of Mexico.

Trump is, quite obviously, correct to note that if building the wall is an urgent project, waiting for the tricky business of securing Mexican financing to be completed first would result in an unacceptable delay.

trump neito 3Unlike most of what Democrats routinely blow billions in taxpayer cash and imaginary deficit dollars on, the border wall is an actual bona fide duty of the federal government — a duty that was supposed to be fulfilled long ago. As the Associated Press observes, congressional Republicans believe no new legislation will be necessary to secure financing, because existing law “already authorizes fencing and other technology along the southern border.”

Trump’s proposals for making Mexico pay for the wall have never assumed the funds would be collected from them before the wall was built. For example, he wrote a memo to the Washington Post in April 2016 outlining how trade tariffs, visa cancellations, increased border crossing fees, and a ban on cash remittances from Mexicans living in the U.S. could be used to either compel the Mexican government to pay for the wall, or collect the necessary monies from them over time.  (read more)

President-elect Donald Trump explains the construction aspects of the wall and how it gets built:

    Did you see the movie World War Z? There was a horrifying scene set in Jerusalem, where the zombies outside the city’s wall, attracted by singing idiots, breached the wall by piling on each other till they got to the top. That was the end of Jerusalem. Trump will need to booby trap the U.S. side, just in case…

            This project has mind-boggling potential. Citizen Donald Trump garnered an enormous fortune in one of the most impossible places to do so, NYC. Never-Trumpers will likewise be relentless (think cockroaches), but his great patriotic and protective passion, matched by our own and our willingness to participate, will eclipse his NYC success. We’re just now catching up to his dreams for the wall that he’s had all along.

        Don’t forget the attraction of the big beautiful doors in the wall. Because there will be no point for normal people to cross illegally, no benes, illegal voting, anchor babies etc, normal people will be attracted to crossing legally through the legal channel, ie the door. This will protect them. Don’t forget 95 percent of Latin American women are raped going through Mexico. If the Narcos don’t get you, the Federales will. Or just the friendly neighbourhood a@@hole. Despite what the SJWs tell you I bet you any money when the women see ICE they praise the Lord, ordeal over.

        Cf Hadrian’s wall not a wall to keep Picts out, rather a wall to filter traffic and commerce to protect Roman Britain from nasty people. It seemed to have worked pretty well. One border town had housing that subsequent people didn’t have until the 17th century in the area.

      In real life border walls, the wall Morocco built on its border to stop Polisario border crossings from Western Sahara is mostly sand berm. It’s been working for decades. It simply enables the border guard to control wider stretches of the border with fewer people and more effective. That’s called a ‘force-multiplier.’
      Right now US Border patrol is playing whack-a-mole arresting ten noisy distraction people on mile 42 while two hundred people sprint across undeterred at mile 47. A barrier would stop that sort of nonsense in a hurry.

        there’s already rail along part of the border, Union Pacific’s old SP “Sunset Route”. They can’t even stop trains in some places or they get picked clean. The Wall will revitalize that rail line.

        I do like the idea of parking something on top. Heavy rail would make costs uncontrollable, viaducts are super expensive compared to walls. But maybe someone will have a breakthrough idea that makes it work.

        The Apollo program generated a lot of neat technology.

        The Superwall could too. If it’s 90′ tall, make the top 50′ solar panels. The physical support structure (the wall) is free. The right of way is free. Just hang em on the side, connect em up and presto: full power for security + lighting plus probably enough for every small town along the way. Cellular coverage? Now complete for both US & MX sides. High-speed data? Fiber end to end.

        Security/Medevac helo pads every 10 miles with stations every 100. Emergency healthcare for areas that never had it.

              Defense of the border while mitigating the current practice of putting Border Patrol in great physical danger should be the goal. The potential of assaults on any border barrier if the Mexican economy continues to deteriorate is real.
              The value of remittances to Mexico from their expatriates here exceeds the value of their fossil fuel production. What is likely to be the result of the cessation of that cross border revenue stream? Defense of the border that has been wide open for eight years is not for the faint hearted.
              When you add desperate, motivated people to that equation, people will be injured and people will die. (For the last eight years border incursions have resulted in many deaths in the desert.)
              As for McCain, his conduct has put him in a class by itself since his days in the Navy.
              His responsibility in the USS Forrestal fire and the number of Navy Pilots who lost their freedom or their lives after McCain was captured and did his singing to his captors is a legacy he has been running from and evading up to the present. (Ergo his nickname from that era, “songbird.”)
              By the way, the defense of the border is NOT an act of war.

Establish trade relations with the natives. He never returned home to claim his wealth. He did Will this fortune to his children by marriage and also to his Native American children.

            Paul Agustin not only rebuilt the meager fort he introduced the natives to contractual relations to end wars up and down the Mississippi and Arkansas rivers which were the primary trading routes. He like his father also established the first legal rights of the Jewish diaspora to practice their faith in the colonies, and even in small groups, (enabling them to be part of the most daring to venture west).

    This “wall” was approved in the Border Fence Bill of 2006. Money was appropriated for it but I’m sure that is gone…Trump mentioned it at a Town Hall with Hannity and he asked Trump WHY it wasn’t built? Trump replied ” I don’t know…maybe they saw a snake!” Congress did a half-hearted effort to build one as seen in photos for it is a joke.
    Trump needs to build it FAST due to the unrest in Mexico and the violence of starving people in Venezuela who are spilling into nearby countries like Brazil and they can’t handle the in-flow. WE could have the South American Continent flooding into the USA!!!

    Perhaps they should look at the Israeli fence. It is not all concrete. Some or most is difficult to cut steel and wire topped with concertina. Advantage it is cheaper, faster to construct and you can see the “threat” on the other side. There are also combined with this ground sensors, cameras and other electronic surveillance.

      Yep, there are very effective security fences available. On day one Trump needs to send 100,000 US military troops tongue border to protect the border and the construction workers. The military can help build it btw.

    Mr. Trump’s campaign commitment to build the southern wall was high on my wish list for supporting him. It is pleasurably reassuring to hear and read/see this ginormous project is really throttling up.

    I built a wall once. After back-to-back hurricanes, the privacy fencing gave way in our backyard.
    After some financial cost/benefit calcs and goading my lovely wife into helping, we decided to DIY the project – using upgraded materials, precise location stakes, and repetitive line levels. Our attention to detail equaled a rather grand outcome and envious neighbors. We were beyond proud of our handiwork!

    My point is…don’t underestimate the accomplishment or wow factor for PE Trump.

    Yes, he is a builder – but completing the Wall (under budget & ahead of schedule!) represents a
    personal goal as much as a promise kept. Trump wants to ‘wow’ himself and bask in the glow
    of a job well done. This project will definitely be one of his greater signature achievements.
    I hope to visit it one day…..for a confirmation selfie souvenir. 😎

      I suspect he will have contractors all across the border area to work on the wall at the same time. This will get it done quicker. I’ll also bet that while it is being built thousands will be trying to rush across the border before they are stopped by the wall. That too will be a mess.

      Some suggest the National Guard be deployed. Unfortunately the Posse Comitatus Act forbids military and military hardware from being used against civilians. Clinton violated that Act by sending tanks and guns to the Branch Davidians in Waco. If Trump was to do that he would be persecuted big time.

    Lots of Americans would love to own a little piece of the wall. Let them buy a brick for $20.00 or so and put any engraving on it if they wish, to honor somebody or just to be part of it. They would come to visit their part of the wall. Tourist business, remember ‘Field of Dreams’? I know, that was just a movie, but still…..Or build a brick path in front of the wall that people have bought, piece by piece and it can become a park, honor something or someone in this country. Park food trucks there, get your lunch, I would cause I love Mexican food. Just keep it clean and nice.
    Bet the other side of the wall would do the same thing.
    Lots of creativity is starting to be unleashed; freedom does that to people. I’m so grateful I’ve lived long enough to see all this, going to be fun!

        Good idea. Suggestion: utilize one (interior – US side) section of the wall as a memorial wall. Use bricks that can be inscribed with the name of the deceased and any message desired by survivors. Each can be purchased for a nominal sum. Mortar those bricks right into that wall; it’s going to make it damned difficult for any follow-up administration to think about tearing down or modifying that wall if those names and memories are attached to it.

    • There will need to be places for the workers to sleep and eat, as the wall is being made. Do some long-term leases from the ranchers, and build some small towns about every 100 miles along the border. Those would become staging areas for both the workers and the material need for the wall. Once the wall is complete, and everything functioning well, the land can be turned back over to the ranchers, who could then use those developments to make money from the tourists that will come in to see The Wall. This will be a massive civil engineering project. There will need to be roads, runways, railroad lines, power stations, as well as what you would need in small towns, such as sewer, trash, and water. The border will become quite livable because of this, and open to all sorts of development. It is the American Way.

    I expect that the wall will be started in numerous areas and using various techniques and materials. There also maybe areas that get a quick treatment of a glorified fence with a better wall to follow.

    There are likely to be areas that are challenging and will take creative efforts to deal with. It may also look like there is no rhyme or reason to what they are doing… but it maybe strategic to funnel illegal crossings in certain areas.

    What is interesting is that instead of assuming the wall wouldn’t be built like they did for months, Trump’s critics are going on about how the taxpayers are going to pay for it not Mexico. It’s like they haven’t been paying attention. Trump’s supporters have. When I see someone, either the media or a friend mention it on FB they get slammed on all the ways Mexico is or can be made to pay for it.

    Replacing the head of the EPA was a major first step in the construction of the wall. Those would have been the people telling the wall-builders they could not build on certain sections of the border because of spoilage of natural habitat, protected species, etc. Now with a friendly EPA head we can forget about environmental concerns. A new head of the DHS – which includes BP and ICE – ensures they will fall in line with patrolling the border and IMMEDIATELY turning around anyone caught somehow circumventing it. The law says it can and must be built. That’s already been covered by Congress, which even allotted money for it years ago. All it took was some judicious personnel choices, and a review of existing law, and we will have the wall construction start quickly upon his inauguration.

    The one problem will not be crossers, but diggers – those who go underneath the wall in tunnels. Israel has developed tunnel-detection technology to a high degree and I don’t doubt that will be employed as a safeguard as well.

    There is major unrest building already in Mexico – yesterday’s deliberate shooting of a US consular official shows that. They’re already rioting among themselves in scattered locations, soon it will spread and become universal. The wall, plus Trump’s rules he’ll put in effect soon forbidding money transfers south over the border, plus much stricter visa expiration deportation rules, will mean that very soon there won’t be any US dollars coming south over the border to fund the Mexican govt plus average Mexican citizens. Mexico will have to grow, almost overnight, a viable domestic economy to support themselves and to provide taxes for the Mexican govt to function as a responsible govt should. Capital and revenues for domestic usage in Mexico are two things that are SEVERELY lacking right now – we’ve been carrying them economically for many decades – and when that realization hits the average Mexican shortly, he’s going to see how his govt over the years has short-changed him and let a bad situation to begin with get much, much worse over time. You are going to see MAJOR social upheaval south of the border, much rioting, violence, murder and mayhem. Hence that wall can’t get built soon enough.

    Remember, it won’t be built right on the border. That leaves plenty of room for a 1/2 mile wide band of stainless-steel razor/concertina wire, with tanglefoot in there as well. NO watering points on the US side. The narrow openings leading to the few border crossing points will be well-covered with automatic weapons, or effective non-lethal weapons – sound cannon, non-lethal gas, microwave emitters, and so on. Microphones need to be sunk 100′ or so into the ground to listen for seismic (tunneling) activity, so effective explosive countermeasures can be employed against them. We can think about opening up those border crossings once the violence in Mexico subsides.

    BTW with the wall in place the amount of drugs crossing into the US via land will be reduced to ZERO. That leaves water and air as mediums of transport. How difficult do you think it will be to police that? Easier than trying to secure over 1,000 miles of unprotected land border?

    Remember “that giant sucking sound” Perot referred to Mexico as being? That ending is what is going to pay for the wall. Money saved by no longer being the “wallet” of Mexico is going to save so much money, so much misery and grief, and force them to deal with their own economic and criminal social problems that they have passed off on the US. The wall is like a contentious eviction. Expensive but you get your property back and then it pays for itself shortly. Mexico has been parasitic, criminal and a very bad neighbor. Walls make good neighbors and it is way overdue.
