A Builder Tours The Wall – President Trump Tours New Border Wall Construction in San Diego Sector…

Promises made – Promises Kept…

President Donald Trump delivers remarks to the media today while touring border wall construction in Otay Mesa, California.   As a builder himself, the president outlined some of the more particular details of the construction project including the difference between compressive strength and tensile strength of 5,000/lb concrete.  There is apparently some additional aspects to the wall that are kept secret (they’re wired for sound).

The President was briefed on the project by Douglas Harrison (Acting San Diego Sector Chief Patrol Agent, United States Customs & Border Protection); Kathleen Scudder (San Diego Sector Deputy Chief Patrol Agent, United States Customs & Border Protection); Scott Garrett (San Diego Sector Division Chief, United States Customs & Border Protection); James O’Loughlin (Border Wall Program Lead, Emergency Action Programs, Department of Defense), and various local officials.

This guy has sacrificed everything from his Legacy and Business to his life to fight these bastards (Washington Insiders). I’m on auto pilot now but I still preach the Gospel of Trump to any non converted that will listen.

        Prison fences have “shake sensors” that feel any effort to climb. They have proximity capacitive sensors that tell if a person is near the fence. They have tensile sensors that tell if a fence is being bent. And they have ground pressure sensors to tell if anyone is approaching a fence. The area on both sides of the fence are kept clean and raked. The patrols can easily see if there have been any activity by noting footprints in the sand. When there are escapes, it is usually due to an inside job. The prisoners cannot in actuality get over a fence.
        This is all done even with the famed “razor” wire at the top of the fence.

    5,000 lb mud, eh?….that’s some stiff mix….that also explains some of these higher costs per mile now….Standard is considered 2,000 – 2,500 lb…. every step above that “adds” to the cost per yard, delivered… And, some of these spots are way out in the stick’s, so that delivery fee mounts up fast, at 50 mph in some mixer beating it down the highway. The real key is the also the rebar used…but, some short-fiber admix used with 3,500 lb mix can equal the performance over many years of weathering of that 5,000 lb stiff willy… It’s what I use in snow country for my ham tower bases!.. no cracks in my original, from back in 2007.

      It think you are speaking of 5000 psi concrete. A “5 bag mix” is ~3800 to 4000 psi, where a “6 bag mix” is closer to 5000 psi. With all the additives, platicizers and retardants, 5000 psi is not that impressive, but it really doesn’t matter- it’s the steel that holds everything up. Think of “compressive strength” as the weight a one inch square piece of concrete would handle just before you place feather on that weight and it shattered. Tensile strength is the brittleness. If a 200 foot by 5 foot slab was cantilevered over a cliff, sliding it a couple inches over that cliff at a time, at what point would the concrete snap of its own weight?

      You may have seen that they discussed painting the wall. Paint is VERY expensive and once applied must periodically be replaced or repainted (ongoing expenses).
      Most steel skyscrapers are sided with stainless steel (WTC 1 & 2) or anodized aluminum, both are very expensive! The best solution was to clad the the building with steel that formed a strong coat of oxidation (rust) that protected the steel from further deterioration.
      This was a specification for the steel bollard wall as it should be maintenance-free FOREVER.
      Besides, the Aliens are going to cover it with graffiti anyway. Let them paint it for us!

Lastly, I see a man who generously shares the credit with everyone of us who took a chance on him, as opposed to claiming it for himself, like some OTHER guy we know all too well…..

    This, My Fellow Americans, is by definition an edifice.

    …..an Edifice with a capital E.

    I’m sorry it was allowed to become necessary.

    I am hugely thankful it’s being put there by a President who knows why National Sovereignty exists and how to protect it. And us.

    Just as they did when the economy tanked in 2008, when the pickings get slim, historically many illegal immigrants self-deport until such time as conditions were more favorable.

    This wall will make that a lot more difficult if not impossible to do.

    Some might now try and stay, whereas before the wall they’d have gone, but that will be greatly offset by the fact that things are being made less exploitable by the day and they can’t hide forever or brazenly demand to be here. And now, with increased border security, once they’re deported they won’t be back.

    Thank you, Mr. President.

    Next up: remittances, I hope.

      I’ve heard residents near the border opine that it was ‘normal’ for people on both sides of the border to cross back and forth all the time, for work and for play, and it was no trouble at all.

      To them, I say then it should be no trouble at all to get the proper paperwork to pass through *legal* channels from now on. We should suffer human trafficking, drug running, gang bangers, socialist leeches and terrorists, so that other people can move about freely as a mere convenience? Uh uh.. I mean HELL NO!

        I was raised in San Diego. I have passed back and forth across the border at San Ysidro many times “for work and for play”. And yes, the residents who have said that was normal are correct. Also normal, but perhaps not specifically mentioned, was everyone being required to present the proper paperwork to pass through in both directions. That was true then and it still is true.

        The difference now is that ports of entry like San Ysidro handle a great deal more traffic requiring even more stringent and careful oversight by border personnel due to trafficking of all kinds exploding in volume in recent years. They are overwhelmed, but nevertheless do a heroic job with the resources they have.

        There has never been an “open border” situation through any of the ports of entry. The illegal activity occurs in remote areas that are fast being fenced properly as today’s article shows. As more smart fencing goes up the volume of illegal activity is being reduced. This is allowing the overworked and overburdened agents to move personnel around to put greater attention on the ports of entry.

        We are very grateful to PDJT for doing what has long been needed and wanted by the residents near the border and the border patrol who have faithfully protected us even as they suffer the “slings and arrows” of a largely misinformed and/or ignorant public who are often far from where the work is being done.

    Pfffft. What does Trump know about building?

    World Trade Center ➜September 11, 2001⬅︎
    Why the World Trade Center Buildings Collapsed
    A Fire Chief ’s Assessment
    By: Deputy Chief Vincent Dunn ret.

    The trend over the past half-century is to create lightweight high buildings. To do this you use thin steel bent bar truss construction instead of solid steel beams.  To do this you use hollow tube steel bearing walls, and curved sheet steel (corrugated) under floors. ➜To do this you eliminate as much concrete from the structure as you can and replace it with steel.⬅︎  Lightweight construction means economy. It means building more with less. If you reduce the structure’s mass you can build cheaper and builder higher. Unfortunately unprotected steel warps, melts, sags and collapses when heated to normal fire temperatures about 1100 to 1200 degrees F.

    The fire service believes there is a direct relation of fire resistance to mass of structure. The more mass the more fire resistance. The best fire resistive building in America is a concrete structure. The structures that limit and confine fires best, and suffer fewer collapses are reinforced concrete pre WWII buildings such as housing projects and older high rise buildings like the empire state building, The more concrete, the more fire resistance; and the more concrete the less probability of total collapse. The evolution of high- rise construction can be seen, by comparing the empire state building to the WTC.  My estimate is the ratio of concrete to steel in the empire state building is 60/40. The ratio of concrete to steel in the WTC is 40/60.  The tallest building in the world, the Petronas Towers, in Kula Lumpur, Malaysia, is more like the concrete to steel ratio of the empire state building than concrete to steel ratio of the WTC.  ➜Donald Trump in New York City has constructed the tallest reinforced concrete high-rise residence building.⬅︎

    MAGA🇺🇸
