    – 2 articles about Arizona bill HB 2084.
    – Video of Arizona House Federal Relations Committee hearing on HB 2084. – (57:40)

    – Numerous photos from Project 1. Reposting part of Jeff Rainforth’s slideshow from the other day as I realized many can’t view slideshow on Facebook and only saw the first photo. (Photographed Friday & Saturday, Jan 17/18.)

    – – – – – –
    ***Praise: 👍 (11/20/19)… DHS Secretary Chad Wolf & CBP Chief gave a huge endorsement to WeBuildTheWall while visiting Project 1. CBP Chief called it a “Game Changer”. It’s the only time CBP or DHS have ever endorsed a wall builder.
    ***Praise: 🧱 (12/2/19)… Fisher Sand & Gravel was awarded a $400M border wall contract to build 31 miles of wall in the Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge in Yuma County, Arizona.
    (Fisher receives $268M of this $400M project)(Estimated contract completion date is Dec 30, 2020.) (2 days of posts here & here.)
    ***Praise: (12/4/19)… Brian Kolfage & his family were given the opportunity to visit the White House.

    ***Praise: Although the Temporary Restraining Order(s) were in place, Fisher Industries and crews were still able to keep working on some aspects of Project 2 from the Dec. 5th hearing to Dec 12th (off for the holidays), after which they agreed to stop until Jan 4th, the day after the amended TRO expired.
    ***Praise: (Jan 3)… Although Judge Crane extended the TRO for another week, he lifted/removed section 8b from the TRO so that Fisher was able to continue to shave, grade, or cut the riverbank.
    ***Praise: (Jan 9)… Judge Crane lifted/removed the TROs from both the Federal government’s lawsuit (on behalf of the IBWC) and the North American Butterfly Association’s lawsuit (on behalf of Marianna Trevino-Wright’s National Butterfly Center) against Fisher Sand and Gravel Co.
    ***Praise: 🧱 Fisher was able to begin installing bollards on Sunday (Jan 12) and work is progressing well. Looks like at least 1.5 miles have been completed as of ~ Wednesday (Jan 22). (Original estimate for completion was 8 to 10 days, depending on weather.)(Looks like Fisher will take longer than 10 days.)

    ***Praise: (Reported on 12/11/19)… Although WBTW doesn’t have $50 million for Project 2, as a result of the success on Project 1, investors have united to come together to secure that stretch of the border on Project 2.
    (Update)… Fisher is taking the lead on Project 2 and is covering most of the money for the wall costing ~$42 million. (Haven’t heard any more about other investors with the exception of WBTW as a minor investor. Not sure what the discrepancy is between 40M and 50M; perhaps it’s because Fisher plans to sell Project 2 back to the government for $14M per mile ~ $49M for 3.5mi.)
    ***Praise: 🔍 (Reported on 12/18/19)… Senator Kevin Cramer was able to complete his in-depth review of the USACE’s procurement process and send a letter with his findings and recommendations to President Trump on 12/6/19.
    ***Praise:🇺🇸 (12/22/19)… Brian Kolfage was awarded Patriot of the Year award by Turning Point USA at their Student Action Summit for his work with WBTW in helping to securing our border.
    ***Praise: (Reported on 1/22-23/20)… WBTW gained a major construction equipment company as a corporate sponsor & are looking for more. (See prayer below for specifics.)
    ***Praise: (Jan 22)… Rep. Warren Petersen’s (R-AZ) bill,HB 2084, making it easier to build border wall on private property in Arizona moved out of the Federal Relations committee with 4-3 vote in favor. The bill will now go to the House Rules Committee(on Jan 27) before a full floor vote.

    🙏 Prayer for the work crews. 🙏
    Heavenly Father, we pray in Jesus’ name:
    – for safety and good weather for the work crews as they work on Project 2; that they would be able to continue uninterrupted (w/ no new TROs) until completion.
    – that WBTW would be able to find corporate sponsors for Project 3. They already have a major construction equipment manufacturer and are looking at solar LED security lighting next. They are looking for a manufacture or even a supplier who wants to be involved and help with lighting.

    – that the DoD IG’s office audit of the $400 million border wall contract which the USACE awarded Fisher Sand & Gravel would show everything is fair and above board; that the swamp in DoD and USACE wouldn’t be able to corrupt the process; & that Fisher would be authorized to proceed with the project as planned.
    – that Rep. Warren Petersen’s (R-AZ) bill,HB 2084, making it easier to build border wall on private property in Arizona would get passed.
    (Jan 22)… Bill passed out of Federal Relations committee with 4-3 vote in favor. The bill will now go to the House Rules Committee (on Jan 27) before a full floor vote.
    – for the bi-national summit with the Mexican IBWC and American politicians that WBTW will be hosting; for open lines of communication/understanding; and that WBTW/Fisher Industries would learn what they need to know to facilitate the sign off and approval of their projects by the Mexican IBWC.

    – 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, 4, and other projects; and for WBTW/Fisher Industries as they work with private landowners to secure more property to build on
    – that work would go smoothly with continual, innovative improvements in method/process/efficiency and quality of construction; 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 Project 2’s wall will prove that WBTW/Fisher Industries can rapidly complete large sections of wall, with a superior build, at the lowest price
    – that this wall would prove that the design is sound and they are able to safely and effectively build it on a large scale in the Rio Grande Valley (Project 2’s “water wall” design is the first border wall that’s ever been built inside the flood plain)
    – that the federal government would provide funding for WBTW/Fisher Industries to build 250 miles on Private Property in Texas

    – that the Government would purchase all of WBTW/Fisher Industries projects so the funds can be rolled into future projects and Fisher Industries will be able to scale up with additional equipment and manpower as needed.
    (This, in addition to ongoing fundraising from public/investors, will allow WBTW/Fisher Industries 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.)

    🌟 “The more that a broken system tells you that you’re wrong, the more certain you must be that you must keep pushing ahead. Because it’s the outsiders who change the world and will make a real and lasting difference. Nothing worth doing ever came easy. Treat the word impossible as nothing more than motivation.” ~ President Donald J. Trump 🌟

      Why are these persons not being held in violation of 18USC Section 1001 (False statements to federal agent)
      False statement is:
      -materially false
      -knowingly and willingly made (being proved to know it was 1) false, 2) unlawful
      -in U.S. jurisdiction

      It would be highly suspect for any of these spooks to declare they did not know it was unlawful to make false statement. So that would be a very tenuous defense. Too, they could not claim violation of 5th Amendment (self-incrimination) since the facts have presented themselves ‘organically’, not through interrogation.

      It is especially troublesome since the feds would be on an ordinary citizen like green on grass, lickety split. (I’ve known three separate persons who were investigated by the FBI and all three were threatened with Section 1001. (none were criminal;y-minded; two ran afoul the EPA for work on their own privately owned lands, the third because an accident during demolition released ammonia to the ambient atmosphere.)

  23. jello333 says:


    Was anything written into the rules concerning interruptions / objections during the 24-hour “presentation” periods?

    The reason I ask is that there were clearly, obviously MANY MANY irrelevant, “beyond the scope”, and just clearly FALSE statements made by the Dems. And yet (as far as I’ve heard) not one peep from the Rep side. So I’m assuming that means they weren’t ALLOWED to object… sort of like you rarely hear an objection during opening statements in a criminal trial. At least I HOPE that’s why it happened. Because if Reps were just “playing nice” and wanting to just let the Dems keep digging their holes, it’s gonna get REAL ugly once the Reps start talking. Because you KNOW that, if allowed, the Dems will be jumping up and interrupting non-stop.

    So… does anyone know what the rules have to say about this?

And no, I’m not even really talking about this current “trial”… it’s more what comes afterwards, including Durham, declassification, etc that I’m looking forward to. I’m hoping that eventually we’ll be looking back on all this and thinking of the old saying.

It would be a shame if all your support and work during the tough times are destroyed by this vote, a mistake, AND your actions after it. I think he would like to be a part of the next four years of Trump.


  27. most interesting these sentiments occurred a year after the last corrupt VP actually got prosecuted in 73… a scar is born. joe might struggle in the defendants chair.

    “The Senator shows a healthy respect for money: “Politics is a damn expensive business. I had one hell of a time trying to raise money as a candidate. I had to put a second mortgage on roy house to get that campaign started, and I ended up spending over $300,000 to get elected. I believe that public financing of federal election campaigns is the only thing that will insure good candidates and save the two-party system. It is the most degrading thing in the world to go out with your hat in your hand and beg for money, but that’s what you have to do if you haven’t got your own resources.’
    He feels the indignity is compounded by the temptation to sell out to big business or big labor for financial help, and says it’s almost impossible for a candidate to remain true to his conscience in this situation. He admits that more than once he was tempted to compromise to get campaign money. “I probably would have if it hadn’t been for the ramrod character of my Scotch Presbyterian wife,” he say’s. “I am not a rich man. And my family does not have money. If I sold every thing I own, including my house and cars, I could probably’ scratch up S200,000, but that’s nothing compared to most of the guys in the Senate.”

    Unlike most other senators, Biden makes no bones about saving he is underpaid. Last September, when the Senate was debating a pay raise for itself, he said, “I dont know about the rest of you but I am worth a lot more than my salary of $42,500 a year in this body. It seems to me that we should flat out tell the American people we are worth our salt.” Before he finished his speech, the Associated Press was banging out a dispatch later picked up by William Loeb, the right-wing editor of the Manchester Union Leader. “Can you imagine the conceit and stupidity of a young man of 30 who would say that?” said Loeb in a front-page editorial. “The voters of Delaware who elected this stupid, conceited jackass to the Senate should kick him in the rear to knock some sense into him, and then kick themselves for voting for such an idiot.” ”

    Didn’t Brennan brief Trump before inauguration that the dossier was floating around and that Trump merely needed to be aware of its existence and that they knew it to be bunk? Imagine telling Trump to his face that something about his personal behavior he knows is not true is “found not to be true, per our investigation…just so you know”. Who thinks like that? Anyhow, was this kick-off of the dossier into the public realm a president-elect briefing or a post inauguration briefing. Either way, it was submitted in the briefing that the dossier was crap.

    So, how to justify a FISA when the FBI attests to the president that it’s crap?

    Democrats, Politicians, Self-serving/witless/pissants/cowards?
    What kind of madness will the Democrats back this time, or America, when is enough, enough; or who the hell are we?

    Before we try to answer the questions let’s review how we got here.

    1. Slavery was legal in all the colonies during most of the 18 century and in the southern colonies/confederate states until 1865.
    2. Approximately 4,000,000 slaves were liberated in 1865 after the nation lost over 650,000 souls.
    3. Most of the slave owners held to be protestant and politically identified with the Democrat Party of the time.
    4. The vast majority of historians agree slavery was the primary factor leading to the Civil War though many southern politicians preferred to substitute slavery with the term, ‘states rights.’
    5. Share croppers replaced slaves as the primary laborers for agricultural production in the southern states from 1865 well into the 20th century.
    6. Democrats have remained one of the true power players in restricting the equal standing of minorities while sustaining in uncountable ways white supremacy through the present day.
    7. While keeping their boots on the necks of Americans minorities/other poor what-evers, the democrats in league with their republican buddies and other not-so-easily-labeled members of the American oligarchy spent the majority of their time/efforts selling out the American middle class by a menagerie of arrangements with the rest of the world to distribute American’s wealth with appreciable kickbacks in their general direction.
    8. Abortions are currently legal in all 50 states. The majority of abortions were/are performed on minority females. The majority of Pro-Choice politicians are democrats. Though failure to accurately report abortion statistics is known to be common (some states, organizations readily admit to inaccurate reporting) 46,413,319 abortions were reported between 1970 and 2016. For 2014, the Guttmacher Institute reported 926,200 abortions, an abortion rate of 14.6 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15 to 44 years. For 2017, the Guttmacher Institute reported 862,320 abortions, an abortion rate of 13.5 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15 to 44 years. A majority of United States senators joined politicians in NY, VA, and VT voted to defeat legislation designed to protect babies born after failed abortions. Makes any half decent human being ask; What does it say about a society that would fight a war for over four years and suffer approximately 675,000 casualties to free 4,000,000 souls, and yet do virtually nothing to save the lives of 47,275,639 babies?
    9. Now comes an outsider to seek the top job in the executive branch of the United States oligarchy. He promises a whole bag full of goodies like; government of the people for the people, free trade, rule of law, pro-life versus pro-choice, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, right to bare arms, etc., etc…. Though in spite of all the words of wisdom from the gaggle of so-called experts the outsider shows all of the experts that they forgot to ask the American people who they wanted for the top job. Rather than accepting the will of the American people and the rule of law, the self-serving oligarchy proceeds to spend millions of dollars in an amateurish coup d’etat to drive the outsider out of town and put the American people back in their place.
    10. Now one last bullet (No belay that), how about one great big bomb! What kind of a society kills millions of babies while spending billions to provide for convicted criminals, inviting hoards from around the world to invade their land, and trading America’s jobs/resources while standing by as their politicians and bureaucrats receive kickbacks in addition to their bloated compensation packages? Note: I dare any American politician (especially one’s leaning to the so-called left) to sit down with this old, long, retired, criminal investigator and answer my questions! Of course I will welcome the presence of any number of American so-called media types in the room as long as they keep their mouths shut!
    11. As one who spent over 45 years as a soldier/cop trying to serve/protect the American people I with mixture of disdain, pity, and hope submit my answer to my question in paragraph #10. Until one Donald J. Trump was elected by the American people to be the 45th President of the United States of America I would have stated without reservation that Americans do not comprise a society when one considers the standard definition of a society. I would have stated that America is currently nothing more than a gaggle of self-serving, witless, cowards. Note: Before living in the woods for the last 20 years and in my own ignorance, I originally labeled Americans as self-serving, witless, pissants and cowards. I have since learned that pissants are not self-serving, nor witless, and certainly not cowards! Since the election of D.J. Trump and considering the events/reactions to the same over the last three years, I have had to consider modifying my positions as to:
    1). My general assessment of the rank/file American.
    2). The various groups making up the new oligarchy.

    I’ll let you know my modified assessment come November!

    Another great catch by Sundance.

    I had forgotten that the sub-source was (according to the OIG) questioned “shortly after the first renewal of the FISA on Jan 12, 2017” – Whoa!

    Perhaps they meant to say shortly “before” not “after”. I mean, why would you renew the FISA, THEN go interview the sub-source “a few days after” that renewal?

    Isn’t that doing things ass-backwards? Sounds fishy to me.

    Also, why, if they knew the dossier was BS DEFINITIVELY by mid-January, 2017 (before inauguration I might point out), did they not stop the entire investigation then and there?

    When they failed to do so, then surely every action thereafter against PDJT became part of a conspiracy (in the unlikely event it was not before) to frame and overthrow an elected President.

    Does this lend further nuanced meaning to the “by the book” email less than a week later? They ALL knew by then that there was nothing there…..

    Could they be trying to confine the damage to the two renewals only. Since Comey and his sidekick McCabe are already dirtied, will they be singled out to take one for the team?


    • Beau Geste says:

      The DOJ/FBI had an ethical and rules requirement in the FISC to immediately report the “sub-source” debunking of their false FISA to the court, and withdraw their fake FISA.
      They did not so advise the FISC. Instead, they withheld the info, maintained the FISA extension, and then sought more extensions. Completely corrupt and unethical. And despite this DOJ/FBI corruption being known, the FISC does nothing. No discipline (fines, jail, disparment…) to protect the integrity of the FISC proceedings. The FISC refueses to withdraw the fake FISA warrants, which protects the DOJ/FBI liars and their illegal spying before and after the FISA Warrants. 18 USC 242 makes it criminal for judges to willfully deny civil rights under color of law.

      The timing is not that critical – the DOJ/FBI had an obligation to not act under the fake FISAs at least as soon as they had the sub-source debunking. (and the original FISA was corrupt also, and the political-spying-complicit FISC knew that spying in its purview was 85% illegal going back to at least 2012)

        FISA court trying to cover their ass. I have no doubt that they were in on it from the beginning with a wink and a nod. They’re swamp critters too you know.


  33. History Teaches says:

    Like it or not, those redundant, dinosaur Sunday morning news shows still create narratives and further leftist agendas. Even indirectly via later excerpts, clips, sound bites. And by setting the tone for further media embellishments.

    With the defense starting on Saturday, it deflates much of the script. The MSM will have less than 24 hours to deal with the presumed lethal debunking of their premises. Lawfare and the media executives will be working overtime on defense themselves. Rather than simply amplifying the themes of the Shifty circus they will have to deal with what we expect to be the beginnings of an aggressive deconstruction of this sick sham.

    By Monday, the Trump team will have built up momentum, established the lack of legal justification for this procedure and exposed some of the facts and details kept hidden or misrepresented.

    Whatever talking points are laid out on the Sunday shows will also be deconstructed on Monday and Tuesday by the Trump team as they see fit strategically.

    For the first time, the Trump team is going to be on offense, and hopefully in an aggressive mode.

    Happy Lunar New Year! Year of the rats. 恭喜發財!

    Unless you are a victim of the Wuhan SARS.

    An encomium to Chairman Winnie the flu, used these unfortunate words:

    亲切的回应,暖心的笑容,瞬间拉近了人民领袖与人民之间的距离。人民领袖和蔼、可亲的形象穿过人群,透过屏幕,感染着每个人。(The kind response and warm smile instantly narrowed the distance between the people’s leader and the people. The image of the people’s leader, who was kind and amiable, passed through the crowd and infected everyone through the screen.)


    Then the New Year gala on CCTV when Traitor Jackie Chan (Americans know him through his US movies), sang a song

    ‘CCTV 2020 New Year Gala just played a patriotic song with lyrics proudly saying “[if you’d ask me], I’d tell you my country doesn’t look diseased!”. The song is performed by Jackie Chan.’

    The rest of the presenters were over the top. Propaganda over allies.

    You think the US Dems are tone deaf, welcome to China.

    Pray for the victims of Wuhan SARS, lots of prayers because it is spreading.

    I have few comments or expectations from the defense team:
    1) First of all, they need to use a god mix of video, powerpoint and their own oral argument. Sometime, 1 hr of argument can be summarized within few slides with lasting impact. They should play each of Schiff’s lies, then follow up with a slide on that with facts and perhaps some video of some sort if needed.
    2) Executive privilege thing is great law point and absolutely needed. However, they should not cling on to it too long. General public does not like any excuse to hide truth. Dems will sell it that way.
    3) Dems have thrown everything on it including Russia hoax thing. So there are too many lies to debunk. There is a danger of people getting lost. So, they should pickup important items about russia hoax and then follow up with conspiracy against trump (point to durham thing, fisa ruling etc).
    The major point out of mueller is : NO US person conspired or colluded with russians. This is the most important line.Specifically, no one form trump campaign colluded with russians. So dems should not say russia, election interference and trump in the same sentence.
    4) On the ukraine front, they should simply point out that no one is above the law even if he runs for office. If corruption is there, then trump is right to investigate it. They should point out what laura ingraham is discovering from state dept and even obama state dept was concerned about it. Also, the whistle blower connection to ukraine visitors at WH.

    I am generally worried that there are too many details.

      Parody vs Truth


    • “there are too many details..” Weeds, tall weeds. The 4 day telethon of Dim talking points to any television viewer seemed believable IF they only watched a few seconds. The Dims put on a TV spectacular designed to convince low info channel surfers. Channel surfers typically could only stand a few seconds before getting lost in the weeds and falling asleep. Good strategy for playing to the low info public. The President’s defense team needs to play to the Senators, of course. They also must put on a TV spectacular to the few viewers that are tired of the previous week’s ‘inside baseball’, SIMPLE COLORFUL GRAPHICS with quick simple points to educate the low info viewer. No tall weeds, please.

      The DoJ and Judge Sullivan will continue to ignore the collateral damage framing of Gen, Flynn until the sun turns green. “FISA officially garbage” and AG Bagpipes and Nazi Van Grack and Judge Sullivan continue to ignore reality and contrive rationale that results in Flynn being a criminal.

    This Biden emo is shocking. Biden’s campaign wrote a memo to all reporters and editors. It tells them what to say and not say, and if they don’t say what they must say, it’s “JOURNALISTIC MALPRACTICE”.
    I imagine the Obama Administration sent these kind of memos out with their daily talking points.
