President Trump Travels to Joint Interagency Taskforce-South in Key West, Florida…

Earlier today President Trump traveled to the Joint Interagency Taskforce-South in Key West, Florida.  Those who have traveled to Key West will note they actually landed AF1 at the Key West airport; quite a remarkable accomplishment (video below).

The U.S. border interdiction activity, the U.S. Coast Guard and Department of Homeland Security in the South Florida Keys is an important part of the larger national security network.  President Trump visited the Naval Air Station at Key West, a strategic part of the Southern security network. Additionally, President Trump thanked those who work within the Joint Agency Task-Force.

.

The Florida Keys are still recovering from last year’s Hurricane and the visit by President Trump is a huge morale boost for the recovery workers still on the ground and the tight knit communities rebuilding. These are great people, born with saltwater in their veins. Thousands lined the streets to cheer for POTUS Trump.

The residents cheer, the turons protest. It’s always this way…

  1. Sure, sure, but what’s REEEEALY going on?

    Puerto Rico’s power grid just failed, getting ahead of the “Trump failed at hurricane relief” story\fake-news-narative?

    Organising the counter-imigration forces, ahead of a coming push?

    ……hmmmm….. Why does it have the air of being a spur-of-the-moment decision?

      Here’s the deal. The power grid is like a giant bathtub. Each generator is pouring water in, and consumers are draining the water out. There are many companies that exist whose purpose is to make sure that the water level stays constant (AC 60 Hz). You don’t overfill the tub (over-frequency), and you don’t let it empty (under-frequency, then blackout).

      On a macro level, there is a pattern to the demand. Sleeping at night, waking up at dawn for the morning ramp, by midday most people are at work who are going to be there so it levels off, a dip as people go home, and a spike again in the evening for home, TV and lighting loads. On a micro level, everyone is random, from the light switch you switch to the fan you turn on. But the balance must still be maintained, so there is planning, scheduling, automation, and reserves to cover unexpected loss (tripping) of generation.

      When you have the United States Eastern Interconnection, the load and generation is simply massive (large tub), and the random loss of any one generator does not have that large of an effect on the whole. Automation and reserves deployment have silently corrected all but the largest outages (the 2003 blackout, but that’s a whole different story). But, if you are a small isolated grid, such as the island of Puerto Rico, the loss of any one generator may be too large to recover from before you hit the under-frequency relays. And, they haven’t really be in a position to carry reserves since the hurricane. So, it is not surprising to me that they would experience a black-out, since their risk exposure is much higher.

        Yes PS knows what he is talking about.
        Unfortunately he is starting from the premise that he has proper grown up fossil fuel supplied electricity.
        Now PS start out with intermittent power generated from windmills and people cells and tell us how you balance the grid and keep it at 50 or in your case 60 hertz.. This is what engineers have to do in greenasylum countries who practice the global warming religion.

    In all seriousness though, that’s always going to be the case. The same goes for the rallies. I have to say though, i think the video at the Key West airport was the best one of all with all of the service members and their families.

        Different geographical areas have different names for them. In Northern Minnesota, eastern, we called them ‘swampers’ because they were known for swamping or tipping over their canoes up in our Boundary Waters. They would lose a lot of expensive gear and yes, we would eventually find them.

        I’m sure there are many here with stories of their own for what they would dub their tourists.

        Turon does have a certain ring to it, I surely like it. I think it will fit nicely in my vocabulary.

      I was a tourist in the beautiful state of Florida just a few months ago and I hope the locals were not laughing at me behind my back especially, at all of the money I spent there.

      I loved Key West.

      Most of us here in Colorado appreciate the tourist dollars.

    And whether all were celebrating his arrival there or not, really does not matter to me. Many many were.

    And why he did it is his own reason. Maybe to simply encourage. Maybe something more. He did say he prefers not to use computers for important stuff. Yet it can be important to encourage people who work hard both to recover and to protect our southernmost sea borders.

    And, don’t we have neough to speculate about yet?

    I hope he visits Truman’s “Little White House” and channels some of Harry’s inner ghost, so to speak. If any of y’all ever get to Key West, please make it stop on your itinerary…it’s a hoot to see where HST went to get away from it all and play poker with his buddies. I can’t even begin to imagine what old “Give’em Hell” would think of his beloved political party nowadays, SMDH.

      In Buffalo, NY we had 16,000+ people come out for a rally for DJT in a hockey arena. There would have been more, except there were suppose to be a lot of violence by imported Soros funded rabble rousers to outdo the Chicago rally that was cancelled. That coupled with the long walk and cold weather kept a few thousand people away. In contrast, later HRC got about 2500-3000 people in a much smaller venue (a larger car museum) in nicer weather.

      The Democrat mayor and very Pro-DJT County Sheriff would have none of it. They kept the protestors corralled across the street and LE was standing shoulder-to-shoulder around the arena. Many people were thanking the LE folks when leaving.

      The DemoCommies always cheat. They actually believe that they know more than we do and all that is best for us. They don’t see what they are doing as being criminal acts. They believe their actions are merely correctional and necessary to defeat evil rich people and conservative morons. Many of them think of themselves as twenty first century crusaders. A peoples army, fists high, marching forwards a Marxist Utopia.

    I loved that the President stopped and seemed like he was going to allow questions from the press—baiting them—then ignored them, said what he wanted to say and continued with his tour.
    I watched for the remaining part of the first video till they got bored and realized they were being ignored and then packed up.
    finally dawned on them, they were insignificant! 🙂

    What’s a turon?

    Key West Airport… elevation 3 feet (!!!), main runway 4801 feet.
    Boeing 747-200, 6000′ feet considered a short runway.

    Was AF1 almost empty with almost no fuel.

    Do we have video of AF1 taking off from Key West? Did they put rockets under the wings to help the take off?

    Yikes.

      AF1 has special high performance jet engines to take off and land from shorter runways. WJC came into Buffalo NY and landed on an airport runway too short for commercial jumbo jets.

      There is a very long runway at the Niagara Falls air base 30 miles north, but the logistics for security along the roads negated going there with AF1.

      ” Did they put rockets under the wings to help the take off?”

      I do not think AF1 is configured for JATO units (Jet Assisted Take Off), which are usually used on smaller (C-130) propeller driven Air Force cargo planes that are heavily laden on short runways.

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JATO

      “JATO became largely unnecessary as the take-off thrust of jet engines improved and is now rarely used even when operating heavily laden from short runways or in “Hot and high” conditions. It is occasionally used in exceptional circumstances, on specially equipped, mostly military, aircraft.”

    As a medically trained person, I can assure everyone that we all have saltwater in our veins, that hanging and infusing a bag of plain water would kill us by rupturung every red bllod cell: that is why we infuse saline(which is a salt water.)

    Which only means, of course, that the GOOD people in Key West, who “have salt water running through their veins” are REAL PEOPLE and as deplorable as the rest of us Treepers whether inlanders or coastal dwellers.

      We need the same lethal force on our southern border with Mexico.

      The Border Patrol is OK when it comes to handling simple illegals but way out of their league in battling the drug Cartels who are in control down there.

      The National Guard is only there now to help free up Border Patrol agents from desk jobs.

      We need a fighting force on our border.
