      Amen, Grandma. Much to give praise for.

      Our PDJT has enormous energy and stamina, no doubt helped along by the MANY people across our USA who pray for him daily. And the fact that he has not only survived, but thrived, against a long term soft coup, shows the power of prayer to our mighty God. Thank You, Lord.

    ***Praise: 🧱 (Project 1: May/June 2019)… WBTW/Fisher Industries was able to build a half mile wall up the side of a mountain in 11 days (with zero safety incidents), cutting off 19 major drug cartel trails, and closing off one of the worst areas along the border… (Began building over Memorial Day weekend in Sunland Park, NM., just across the Rio Grande from El Paso, TX.)
    ***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: While 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 (after which they were off for the holidays).
    ***Praise: (Jan 3)… Judge Crane 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: 🧱 (Feb 17)… Project 2 is complete. (Not sure if they finished the planting/seeding of the last stretch of the river bank yet though; also, there probably is some cleanup left.)

    ***Praise: Fisher has taken the lead on Project 2, covering most of the money for the wall($22M bank loan; total cost is ~$42M). (Haven’t heard any more about other investors with the exception of WBTW as a minor investor. Fisher plans to sell Project 2 back to the government for $14M per mile, or $16.5 million with 10 years of complete upkeep included.)
    ***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.
    ***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.
    (Feb 6)… The bill passed house on reconsideration with 31-29 party line vote. Next, it goes to the Senate.

    🙏 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 3 & 4; that they would be able to continue uninterrupted until completion.
    – for WBTW/Fisher Industries regarding the ongoing lawsuits; that the lawsuits would be dismissed.
    (Feb 5)… Judge Randy Crane granted a 60-day extension to all parties. The three sides will reconvene on April 8.
    – that WBTW would be able to find corporate sponsors for Project 3. (They already have a major construction equipment manufacturer and are looking for a solar LED security lighting manufacturer or supplier next who wants to be involved.)

    – 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.
    (Jan 30)… The bill failed on the house floor as one Republican sided with the Democrats.
    (Feb 6)… The bill passed AZ house on reconsideration with 31-29 party line vote. Next, it goes to the Senate.

    – 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 of wall 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 🌟

      Jeff Rainforth Facebook post – 2/22/20

      – Here are a few photos I took of the second border wall project we (We Build the Wall) invested in in Mission, Texas. Just got back home a few days ago after a month & a half on the road with Foreman Mike & Airman Kolfage (Like my page Jeff Rainforth to follow all of my border journeys).
      – Mike & I traveled to some serious cartel areas where we couldn’t even stop the truck. Tons of pics & videos to share and I’ll be posting them soon.
      – This wall is 3.5 miles long and is right on the Rio Grande River. The property owner has sugar cane plantations there & needed protection from cartels & criminal illegals which is why he agreed to have the wall built. His workers weren’t safe at night on the property so he had to send them away & have them return for work each day.
      – Border Patrol agents I talked to said that illegals would hide in the sugar cane fields where the cane grows to 20-25 feet. Once the illegals were in the cane, Border Patrol couldn’t find them, and the K9s wouldn’t go in. All that changed now! Thanks for everyone’s support in helping make this wall section happen! Project 3 is coming soon & I’ll be there to document it all. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

I don’t accept that there is any sort of “Congressional immunity” that entitles a Member of Congress to knowingly lie to Congress and to attempt to subvert its lawful power and role. I want to hold my Congress to a much higher standard of professionalism and conduct than it apparently holds itself. Businessmen and lower elected officials can be sent to prison for a very long time for doing what Senators and Congressmen do, and think nothing of doing.

      It’s a direct result of Export Licenses signed by Bush II State Depart and a part of the NWO foundation he was laying.

      Over a 24 Year period, Clinton-Bush II-Obama, successive State Departments presided over the export licensing of allot of the US Technology and Manufacturing Know to their financial benefactors. That was followed up by 1-Way Trade Agreements, with TPP set to be signed as soon as Hillary parked her fat butt in the oval office. Export licensing is a business topic that NOBODY discusses and it takes allot of reading to understand how it works if one applies for a license of any type. During my professional career I was part of 100’s of licensing efforts, including; meeting data level, hard data level, tech transfer and manufacturing. It’s very political and there were billions of dollars involved.

      The dirty secret I keep repeating is that alleged technology theft by nations is dwarfed vs the legal transfer that occurs by export licenses. Licensed products and technology transfers CAN NOT be challenged in court as long as the license and supporting off-sets are kept within the boundaries of signed documents.

      Maybe it will take this controlled biological assault by China Inc., to regain it’s economic edge or just flat blackmail the world, for the US Government to finally pay attention to its licensing processes and review as well as modify those licenses already in place.

      Hillary Clinton and John Kerry did not chose to be Secretary of State for the government experience. The State Department is the FINANCIAL end of the Executive branch of government, dispersing as well as controlling; aid, grants and export licenses.

      This was also a result of the second wave of parasites on our medical system: the large class action lawsuits.

Just outsource it. The third wave of parasites, the one meant to kill the host, was of course our lovely government….

      We could argue about whether Crazy Bernie is a populist. I would argue that a socialist, globalist Cultural Marxist cannot be a populist, regardless of whatever rhetorical window dressing he spouts. But even if conceded the populist tag for argument’s sake, Crazy Bernie’s ideology and public policy visions are about as far removed from DPJT’s vision as can be.

    How The “Interpreter” Scam Brought 75,000 Iraqis And Afghans To America
    http://sultanknish.blogspot.com/2020/02/how-interpreter-scam-brought-75000.html

    “That’s a lot of interpreters considering that there were only 5,200 American troops in Iraq…”

    The truth is that the military brass has wrongly used the incentive of Special Immigrant Visas to recruit local personnel and cut costs by promising them resettlement in the United States. … The SIV scam passes the buck to local cities and states, to ordinary taxpayers and communities who have to hire interpreters who speak Pashto to interact with the children of the interpreters who are swamping local school systems.

    … the number of SIV visas for Afghans and Iraqis shot up from 10,681 in 2014, to 14,383 in 2016, to 18,390 in 2017.

    That’s when Stephen Miller tried to slam on the brakes.

    Examples:

    Bilal Abood came to the United States on an SIV visa. Like many SIV applicants, he had worked as a contract linguist in Iraq.

    Once in the United States, Abood began viewing ISIS beheading videos and tweeted, “I pledge obedience to the Caliphate Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.” … the leader of ISIS.

    “The United States is the enemy of Allah,” he had said.

    5 Iraqis who who came to America on SIV visas took part in the rape of an American woman in Colorado Springs who was abused so badly that there was blood splattered on the wall. Her mistake was sympathizing with the poor hapless refugees.

    That’s our mistake as a country.

    For all the Bernie hate around here, I think Bernie is going to be good for us. Yes, Bernie voters hate President Trump. But they hate the establishment Democrats even more. President Trump will slaughter Bernie in November, so don’t worry about that. But if he can put the Clinton wing of the democratic party on tilt at the same time that President Trump disassembles them from the front side, there is very little chance that they will recover and become formidable by 2024, when we are going to have to face the difficult task of replacing President Trump. We don’t want another George Bush scenario.

      Good thinking about “Bernie.” But I think it’s largely irrelevant to the bigger picture which is that exposing, indicting, and jailing the Deep State coup plotters will keep the Dems out of power for generations. In other words, this event is what was supposed to flip the Establishment from liberal back to conservative. If this doesn’t happen, and in 2024 we simply have another Left vs. Right election, we’re toast. Trump is a force of nature and won’t come around twice in a lifetime. We need an unconditional surrender from the other side or we LOSE! There is no replacing Trump. In 2024 Trumpism survives or Leftism crushes us into oblivion.

    • The radical Crazy Bernie wing of the left/Democrat Party is worse than the “progressive” wing. Both camps are globalists and Cultural Marxists. The only difference is the Crazy Bernie wing is more overtly socialist/communist, while the “progressive” wing is some mix of corporatist or “social democracy” socialism-lite.

      You’re right that the Crazy Bernie wing doesn’t have nearly as much power and money as the “progressive,” wing. The “progressive” wing is awash in corruption, extra-legal power, Deep State infrastructure, etc., etc., so they are the biggest current threat.

      But woe be the day when the Crazy Bernie/AOC wing ever gets the power that the “progressive” wing has! They will make Arkancide look like child’s play.

    FTA – While the race for the Democratic presidential nomination threatens to devolve into an intraparty civil war, President Trump’s campaign is expanding the Republican base by tapping into the vast pool of Americans who are eligible to vote yet exercise the franchise very sporadically. These desultory voters constitute more than 40 percent of the electorate according to a new Knight Foundation poll. Brad Parscale, Trump’s 2020 campaign manager, is deploying a small army of volunteers at each of the President’s rallies to identify attendees who may belong to this immense reservoir of potential supporters and convert them into 2020 Republican voters who will show up and cast ballots on Election Day.

    BEIJING – China’s leader said Sunday the new coronavirus epidemic is the communist country’s largest-ever public health emergency, but other nations were also increasingly under pressure from the deadly outbreak’s relentless global march.
    _____

    President Xi Jinping said the epidemic was the “largest public health emergency” since the founding of the People’s Republic in 1949.

    “This is a crisis for us and it is a big test,” he said during remarks carried by state television.

    In a rare admission, at a meeting to coordinate the fight against the virus, Xi added that China must learn from “obvious shortcomings exposed” during its response.

    The World Health Organization (WHO) has praised Beijing for its handling of the epidemic, but China has been criticized at home for silencing early warnings from a whistleblower doctor who later died from the virus.

        But, again, that’s IF he wins the nomination. We will find out, after the fact, if the Democrat establishment is trying to defeat Crazy Bernie or if they must eliminate him. If Bernie gets another heart attack or is forced to step out of the race because of x, y, or z, then the Democrat establishment could not live with Bernie and had to eliminate him (unlike our VSG PDJT, Crazy Bernie is not the least bit equipped to withstand a serious effort by the establishment to eliminate him).

          And, as I’ve said before, don’t expect all this “criminal evidence” to be declassified and released to the public. Barr has the authority instead to show it to a Grand Jury composed of citizens who don’t have security clearances. All of the evidence, and the very existence(!) of the Grand Juries, will be kept profoundly secret.

          “That’s the Law.” You are presumed innocent. You are entitled not to be “tried in the court of public opinion” unless and until actual criminal charges are filed against you. Prosecutors (and AG’s) are strictly forbidden to discuss anything with anyone. We are witnessing these people adhering absolutely to these principles, which will become extremely important when these cases come to trial and the world’s most-expensive defense attorneys immediately begin attacking the clay feet of the process.

In fact, officials told CNN the US “does not have evidence that Russia’s interference this cycle is aimed at reelecting Trump.”

          Although there’s a lot of talk about “biological weapons,” the real problem with them is that we are all “biological,” with no way to identify friend vs. foe. And furthermore, as we’ve all seen when we “get a flu shot” but then “get the flu anyway,” actual viruses love to mutate and do so constantly.

          Now that we know how to “sequence” viruses, there’s a huge amount of computer simulation work being done, trying to learn exactly how a virus becomes virulent … and sometimes, suddenly stops being so, as the “Spanish Flu” suddenly did after infecting more than 500 million people. They’re also trying in the same way to understand cancers.

    • Re Cuban Literacy. Story from personal experience. Years ago worked with young fellow who was born in Cuba around time of Castro taking power. I once asked him if his parents fled with takeover. He said no his mother was a all pro Castro and was happy with Revolution . They lived in a smaller town and when he was in 5th grade or so and his brother in 4th , he said a government official came and told his parents that the smartest kids in their little school (which included his brother and him ) had been chosen by the government to continue their education in Bulgaria the following semester (this was during Cold War). This was Communism in practice not in theory and hit too close to home for his mother and he said his mother made sure the family was on the next flight to Spain and they eventually got to the USA . Yes Bernie knows Cuba….

        Nice story about a smart woman who was not brainwashed by the ideology to commit her children to it.

        Ronald Reagan was my Commander-in-Chief when I served, so he is extra special to me!

        Defeating Communism was Reagan’s number 1 goal.

        Bernie Sanders talking about how Castro did some good things like literacy and healthcare is the kind of hogwash that only people who know nothing about Cuba before Castro took over believe. The fact, proven by UN Statistics, is that Cuba was No. 12 in the world in literacy and was third in the world in the number of physicians per 100,000 population BEFORE Castro took over.
        Cuba was no economic basket-case either, as it is today; it was in fact a fast developing country (proven by UN statistics) with the second highest standard of living in Latin America (behind Venezuela). But, I don’t need UN statistics to know that because I was born there and experienced the pre-Castro Cuban economy before I had to flee at age 15, nearly two years after Castro took over under false pretenses. All That Castro accomplished was to acquire total control by bringing the Iron Curtain and its subsequent darkness to my native country’s shores, thus setting Cuba back 100 years.

      My niece is married to an American of Cuban descent whose parents escaped Bernie’s wonderful Fidel paradise in the early 80’s. They say the same as those described in the Reagan article. The father,Popi, says Castro’s Cuba smells like death.
