    ***Today’s WeBuildTheWall / Fisher Industries posts***
    (Previous posts: https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2019/12/08/december-8th-2019-presidential-politics-trump-administration-day-1053/comment-page-1/#comment-7635911)

    – – – – – –
    Sunday update – 12/7/19

    – There appears to be some work activity taking place on Project 2. Brian Kolfage seemed to be hinting at that as well. I’m not sure, but from the video it looks like workers may be assembling individual bollards into panels.
    – Mentioned that Project 1 cost $9 million.
    – Misc. articles

    – – – – – –
    ***Praise: 🧱🧱🧱 Fisher Sand & Gravel has been awarded “mammoth” border wall contract (receiving 268M of this 400M project) to build 31 miles of wall in the Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge in Yuma County, Arizona. Estimated contract completion date is Dec 30, 2020. (12/2/19) (2 days of posts here & here.)
    ***Praise: Brian Kolfage & his family were given the opportunity to visit the White House. (12/4/19) (RSVP Confirmation from WH & 2 photos.)

    Prayer for the work crews.
    Pray:
    – for 100% safety/health/guidance/direction for the work crews, security personnel, legal team, CBP, DHS, Army and all involved in Project’s 2, 3, and other projects
    – that work would go smoothly with quality construction; with continual, innovative improvements in method/process/efficiency; and with transitioning as they scale up capacity(manpower, equipment, etc.) to build larger projects
    – that there would be no outside interference (cartels, IBWC, courts/judges, protesters, swamp, etc.) and that if outside interference takes place that it would only work toward WBTW/Fisher Industries/USA’s benefit (exposing corruption, raising awareness, fundraising, etc.)
    – that any Temporary Restraining Orders that may have been put in place this week to halt construction would be resolved/dropped and work will continue so that the 3.5 mile project would be completed by WBTW’s January 15 goal (Date may be pushed further as video was made a few days before Fisher Industries was ordered not to build wall.).

    – that Project 2’s wall demonstration will provide the evidence necessary to overcome any objections and show that WBTW/Fisher Industries can rapidly complete large sections of wall, with a superior build, at the lowest price
    – that this demonstration of the first border wall that’s ever been built inside the flood plain would provide undeniable proof that the design is sound and they are able to safely and effectively build it on a large scale in the Rio Grande Valley

    – that the Government would purchase all projects that WBTW builds so the funds can be rolled into new &/or larger projects in the future and Fisher Industries will be able to scale up with additional equipment and manpower as needed.
    (This, in addition to ongoing fundraising, will allow WBTW/Fisher to continue to self fund projects, build their reputation/resume, while they continue to pursue other avenues which could lead to government contracts down the road.)

      A real effect, though anecdotal, I’ve seen is since Trump’s election in 2016 many public TVs in restaurants, bars, and malls have stopped showing cable news channels as their default station. They don’t get paid like airport contracts and CNN – is this even still true?

      Why?

      It stresses people out and causes problems. They’ve defaulted to sports stations now. The sports stations should take care and heed that lesson.

    Pentagon Alarmed Russia Is Gaining ‘Sympathy’ Among US Troops
    https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/pentagon-alarmed-russia-gaining-sympathy-among-us-troops

    Article speculates that troops tiring of wars are a main cause. Maybe so.

    And quotes “sources” laying out a framework that it’s the Russians actively sowing subversion.

    Probably on reason one. Doubtful on reason 2.

    More likely than Russian subversion is that our troops have been witnessing the ongoing “Russia hysteria” screamed by frenetic Democrats, the “Mueller Russia investigation” that turned up nada, and can see for themselves the fraud and attempted coup that’s been going on.

    The troops realize they’ve been lied to about “Russians! Russians! Russians!”

    They’re not stupid. They can think for themselves.

    So it’s little wonder the troops are more inclined to think Vlad’s probably not such a bad guy.

    As perhaps more honest than the liars in their media and Democrat party

        sen. Graham must recuse himself from overseeing the impeachment charade. In my opinion, his hands are stained with tainted greenbacks funneled to him by Ukraine’s dictator Poroshenko, His decision to protect corrupt House members like rep. Schiff is nothing but an attempt to prevent being outed for his own criminal action (taking kickbacks of American foreign aid money). Is that why sen. McConell assigned him to chair the senate Judiciary committee?

      What kind of accountability processes are there on the behalf of American taxpayers for money we give to other countries? What kind of responsibility and accountability does the receiving country have? What kind of responsibility does the government have to track that money? What kind of assurances/monitoring/declaration does a politician and all of their aids have to sign when they are involved in the process of being generous with our money to other people?

      Biden, Kerry, Pelosi, Waters and their corrupt offspring must rot in prison as a minimum. The countries that participated in the corrupt use of U.S. money and paid money back to crooked politicians and their families must also be held accountable in some way so they never do it again.

      The U.S. must stand for morality and honor. We the People must awaken and demand accountability for our government and the use of our tax money.

      These same democrats who have been screaming about our religious hypocrisy. They look with disdain as they point out “dishonor of mother earth”, our lack of taking care of the poor, the sick, and the downtrodden victims in this country and anywhere else in the universe– capitalizing on the guilt and shame they are able to induce in our still intact collective good conscience — They have been collectively giving to “the poor countries” with a collection scheme to line their own pockets with far more money than would take care of their self-righteous “causes”

      This is what they need their noses rubbed in, and contrasted to the sleeping and blindly trusting American “social justice” warriors.

    What a contrast, yet still typical.

    A US Attorney in Tennessee essentially pleads guilty to falsifying time records for work for a couple of weeks. She loses her job, has to pay $10,000 restitution, and possibly jail time.

    The contrast? I believe shat Comey, McCabe, Brennan, Strzok, Lisa Page, attorney James Baker, and what others did is far worse and essentially guts our election process & Lady Justice.

      Well, everything he writes is true. It was known that Roosevelt wanted America in the war in Europe much earlier. He started the lend/lease program to at least help the Brits. However, as stated the American public did not want to fight a war in Europe. But still, even with the American President supporting and desiring our involvement in Europe, it wasn’t until the Pearl Harbor attach that war was declared against the Japanese and it was not until Germany declared war against the USA that we entered that war. And, certainly, Roosevelt put most of the energy into Europe rather than the Pacific theatre, at least initially. In reality the “campaign to lie America into WWII” did not work. The Japanese did that and Hitler’s stupidity in declaring war against us. Regardless, American’s did the right thing in crushing both Nazi Germany and the Empire of the Sun. Imagine a world with those two powers existing in todays world. Our Congress would have sold us out a long time ago just like they are doing with China right now. We should have crushed their ass during the Korea wars. Probably the only thing MacArthur said the was correct.

          The Russians were in no way crushing the Germans at that point.

            The Battle of Moscow took place between October 1941 and January 1942.
            After that the Soviets started to push the National Socialists back.

              Please read history. Look up Case Blue, the war plan against the Soviet Oil Regions. Without the convoys to Murmansk and through Persia the Russians would have lost Atrakhan and the Caucasus and the Germans might have been able to attack the British positions in the ME.

                I do know that, and I have read history.
                I am aware that the Soviets got a lot of assistance after America entered the war. With arms and fuel also. It was a lack of natural resources that helped defeat the Nazis. Once they lost the oil field of Romania they were beaten. It was only a matter of time.

        I sincerely hope we never need to go to war again because we won’t win. Not that we couldn’t, but because our brave soldiers are not ALLOWED to; rules of engagement are getting them killed and imprisoned.

        I listened to an old song on 12/7 that people listened to after the attack on Pearl Harbor, called “Don’t Forget Pearl Harbor”; today, we are not even allowed to THINK about eliminating our enemies before they kill us. Most young white people are petrified of the mere accusation of “racism”. They are doomed to lose every freedom they have. They just don’t know it yet.

        The attitude in that old song is why we won WW2; kill them. Kill them all. BEFORE they kill you.

          President Trump has already redefined the ROE, Rules of Engagement, and that is why we were able to wipe out so much of ISIS so quickly.

          Our President will not enter into a “half war”, “police action”, “nation building”, or any other nonsensical military engagement that ties one hand behind their back policy for our warriors–and our warriors by definition are color blind except for Red, White, and Blue!

          Any general, admiral, Pentagon pencil pusher, or perfumed prince who does not understand this in a crisis setting will quickly hear the words; “You’re Fired!”

            PT well may have redefined the ROE; but what makes anyone think the deep state mindset has not infiltrated the military…LEO, dog catcher fer that matter.

            Every damn day we watch our betters walk all over us and PT. Laws are only for the little people and republicans; nothing, absolutely nothing, surprises me anymore.

              Jeez – our President can change the ROE all he wants, but that’s not gonna fix the precious snowflake generation(s.) There’s a few badasses in there to be sure, but the majority of the young men I see complain about having to bend over to use a drinking fountain. Unless it’s time to scream leftie political slogans or ‘fight to protect the planet’ by shaming someone about climate change. Standing in groups screaming ‘racism something or other’ wouldn’t have had much of an effect on a real enemy.

                Kay, this is what I’m trying to say. We have the best soldiers in the world, but the snowflakes are in for a very rude awakening.

                They’re afraid of their own shadows, and they’ll pay. Their masters will enslave them even further, then kill them.

                  Well now, I hear your concerns loud and clear, but I take a more historical view of the situation while adding in the “President Trump Factor”.

                  What you and Kay are saying is nothing different from what has been said historically by every generation since before the Revolution, but somehow when the need truly arises Americans, including the wayward youth, always, eventually stand up to the plate and deliver.

                  Just like my nephew, who was the flightiest of stoner snowflakes, is now an Army Captain after signing up as a private 18 years ago.

                  Young or old, military service or civilian, eventually we hear/feel the call embedded deep within our very bones/conscious/bond with our unique country to “stand and deliver”.

      The Japanese, Germans and Italians were all allies. The Japanese were keeping the Brits held down in the Asian theater. We were fighting them all. In my mind it made sense to fight in both theaters.

    FTA – This week ended with the Senate confirming 8 federal judicial nominees, bringing the total of Trump-appointed federal judges to 172, one-fifth of the federal judiciary.

      By my count, which I get directly from usgovcourt site, lists 19 judicial confirmation in 2017, 66 in 2018, and 90 so far this year = 175 confirmations out of 890 Federal judicial positions. Which means that President Trump has now filled 19.66% of all the federal judicial positions.
      Total Federal Judicial Positions (judges):
      US court of Appeals : 179
      US District Courts: 677
      US Court of International Trade: 9
      US Court of Federal Claims: 16
      US Supreme Court: 9
      So every 89 judges confirmed = 10% of Federal judicial positions.

      There are currently 90 vacancies to be filled. And 18 future vacancies to be filled-5 of which become vacant before Congress reconvenes January 6th, 2020.

        Thank goodness Zero was such a lazy dweeb who expected Clinton to win and fill many of these positions rather that him doing it himself.
        We used to moan about him and all of the time that he spent playing golf and on vacation on our tax dollars. Money well spent it seams to me.
