    ***Today’s WeBuildTheWall / Fisher Industries posts***
    (Previous posts: https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/06/01/june-1st-2020-presidential-politics-trump-administration-day-1229/comment-page-1/#comment-8283220)

    Note: Most of the WBTW related social media accounts are covering coronavirus, politics, or illegal alien crimes. We will probably be in a quiet period regarding wall content until the next project(s) are near completion.
    The praises (much of which are older news) have been provided for those who wish to give thanks for them before praying for the wall prayer requests. I may add to, trim back, or simplify from time to time as projects/events progress or come to completion. If there is any new wall news I’ll list them in the update below. Otherwise, feel free to page down or scroll past.
    – – – – –
    Sunday night update – 5/31/20 – (See link above.)

    – 4 photos (tweeted 4/27/20) of wall going up in the Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge in Arizona.

    – 1 enlarged portion of a photo marked up to show new innovative hydraulic designs and other CAT/hanger features.
    (Includes descriptions of each feature.)
    – 1 photo with closeup of external control console, probably for operating the 2 hydraulics on the hanger, and possibly the main CAT boom hydraulics as well from outside the cab. This would allow the operator a better view to maneuver panels into trench and easier communication w/ ground crew at the trench.

    – 2 photos Project 1 to showing the steps/platforms Fisher has build up to keep the ground level for the CATs so they can position their load of bollard panels properly. Fisher added the 2 hydraulics on the hanger after learning from the difficulties they experienced on Project 1.
    – 1 Photo with closeup showing bollard securing mechanisms.

    – – – – –
    Monday night update – 6/1/20
    Note: Today’s posts cover the location of Fisher’s 1.28B, 42 mile project, awarded on May 6.
    The project “starts near Nogales and runs west for 38 miles along the Coronado National Forest and Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge until it reaches the eastern boundary of the Tohono O’odham Nation, with small breaks separating the segments.”
    “Another 4 miles of wall will go up about 10 miles east of Nogales. A section of wall measuring two-tenths of a mile will go up at or near the Santa Cruz River.”

    – 2 CBP maps showing Fisher’s 1.28B, 42 mile project location in Arizona.
    CBP map with larger view showing surrounding area, including the Tohono O’odham Nation reservation to the west.
    CBP map of Fisher’s project location, enlarged and marked to show the individual segments/sections of the project.
    Excerpts from 2 articles about Fisher’s project location.

    – 2 Google maps of same location. One map is in “map” mode and the other map is in “terrain” mode. Users may zoom in/out to see different views of the surrounding towns, cities, or terrain. Compare with above CBP maps for location of Fisher’s 42 mile project.

    ***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… (Sunland Park, NM)
    ***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; another $132M could be added if all options in contract are exercised, totalling $400M… or $8.6 to $13M per mile)(Estimated contract completion date is Dec 30, 2020.
    Project: Yuma (Wellton Station) Border Wall System

    ***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: 🧱 (Project 2 complete: Feb 17)… Fisher Industries was able to build 3.5 miles of wall along the Rio Grande River in Mission, Texas. Project 2’s “water wall” design is the first border wall that’s ever been built inside the flood plain.

    ***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: 🧱 (5/6/20)… Fisher Sand & Gravel was awarded a $1.28B border wall contract to build 42 miles of wall in southern Arizona, most of which will run from Nogales to the eastern boundary of the Tohono O’odham Nation. It’s the largest border wall contract that’s ever been awarded. The project includes seven (or 8?) segments and will be painted black.
    Project: Tucson Package 3, (Complex terrain, which includes rugged mountains and water crossings)

    🙏 Prayer for the work crews. 🙏
    Heavenly Father, we pray in Jesus’ name:
    – for safety and health for the work crews and their families while they stay home during the temporary work shutdown; for safety and good weather for the work crews when they start up work again on Project 3, 4, 5… as well as the Federal 7.6M/800 foot, the 400M/31 mile, and the 1.28B/42 mile contracts for wall in Arizona; that they would be able to continue uninterrupted until completion.

    – 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. (Backstory/timeline)
    ***Praise: (4/15/19)… Fisher Industries has been awarded a 7.6M contract modification to build 800 linear feet of 30-foot bollard barrier while the original 400M contract is still under review by the DoD IG’s office. My guess is this will give further evidence to the IG that Fisher Industries was justified in receiving the original 400M contract. (Details)
    (Update: Fisher has built well beyond the initial 800 feet.)
    ***Praise:… Looks like work has already begun on this 31 mile project, despite the ongoing audit. Photos showing well over 800 feet of wall, started appearing around the end of April. No official word yet though.

    – for WBTW/Fisher Industries regarding the ongoing lawsuits; that both sides would be able to resolve any issues and the lawsuits would be dismissed.
    (May 6)… Positive developments in today’s hearing.
    “Warner and Courtois sounded cautiously optimistic that engineers could work out any remaining problems.”
    “In the meantime, the IBWC and Fisher Industries will review the hydraulic analysis.”
    “Engineers with the United States section of the IBWC also sent hydraulic models to their counterparts in Mexico, who may offer comments or objections.”
    “Attorney Javier Peña, who represents the butterfly association, said his client wanted to independently review the hydraulic model.”
    “U.S. District Judge Randy Crane agreed to schedule a status conference in 60 days.”

    – 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.)
    – 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.
    ***Praise: (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/salvation(through faith in Christ Jesus) for the work crews, security personnel, legal teams, CBP, DHS, Army, National Guard and all involved in Project’s 2, 3, 4, 5 and other private or federal 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 the design is sound and that WBTW/Fisher Industries are capable of safely and effectively building it on a large scale in the Rio Grande Valley, with a superior build, at the lowest price
    – 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.

    🌟 “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 🌟

      CBP maps of Fisher’s 42 mile (1.28B) border wall project
      Contract awarded May 6.
      The CPB site states… “Project Length (Approximate): 44 Miles Pre-Construction & 25 Miles Under Construction.” (Not sure why the articles state that the project is 42 miles and CBP site states it is 44 miles.)
      Location in southern Arizona, most of which will run from Nogales to the eastern boundary of the Tohono O’odham Nation. It’s the largest border wall contract that’s ever been awarded.

        Article excerpts about Fisher’s project location.

        Construction Dive excerpts (Link):
        – Fisher’s scope of work includes 42 miles of barrier construction from Nogales, Arizona, to the eastern edge of the Tohono O’odham Nation reservation, which is situated across three counties — Pinal, Pima and Maricopa. A 38-mile westward stretch will have small gaps separating six segments, and a four-mile piece will be built east of Nogales. Fisher will also build a small section, measuring 0.2 miles, at or in close proximity to the nearby Santa Cruz River.

        Arizona Daily Star excerpts (Link):
        – The funds will go toward building about 42 miles of border wall, most of which will run from Nogales to the eastern boundary of the Tohono O’odham Nation…
        – The May 6 project includes seven segments. The bulk of the project starts near Nogales and runs west for 38 miles along the Coronado National Forest and Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge until it reaches the eastern boundary of the Tohono O’odham Nation, with small breaks separating the segments.”
        – Another 4 miles of wall will go up about 10 miles east of Nogales. A section of wall measuring two-tenths of a mile will go up at or near the Santa Cruz River.
        – A bridge was built over the river last year to help Border Patrol agents drive through the area.

    IMHO, the George Floyd “Peaceful Protestors who morph into Rioters, Looters, and Arsonists” consist of three main groups:

    1) White youth “protestors” are the most superfluous with the exception that they do take up space and marginally harass Law Enforcement.
    The overwhelming majority of the white youth protestors are LARPers (Live Action Role Players) or someone who enjoys acting out fantasy adventures, in this case, pretending to be Revolutionaries. The rest are just bored, who want to be a part of something exciting, and 100% of them want to get some quality Virtue Signaling Selfies.

    2) Antifa Domestic Terrorists
    Antifa (overwhelmingly, if not exclusively, white but a little older (college professors and college dropouts)) are the most organized and of all the “protestors”. They dress mostly in black hoodies, including black face masks / bandanas. Antifa are Anarcho-Communists, organized in small groups structured in a quasi-military fashion (Area Riot Captain, Lieutenants, Communications, Surveillance, Lookouts, etc.) Their backpacks are equipped with battle gear (hammers for breaking windows, spray paint canisters, bottled water, bottles of liquid fire accelerant, wire and bolt cutters, etc.) They have a mission, which is violence, destruction, arson, fomenting violence and creating chaos.

    3) Local Urban Youth who live in the neighborhoods where “peaceful protests that morph into rioting” are happening. They primarily are opportunists taking advantage of the chaos created by Antifa.

      Speaking of ” virtue signaling selfies”. Was

      Crazy white woman standing out in front of her historic,

    Who is responsible for the death of George Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis City Police Officer?

    Chief of Police, Minneapolis Police Department: Medaria Arradondo, an Afro-Latino, nominated by the Mayor after the resignation of former police chief Janee Harteau in mid-2017, shortly after the shooting of Justine Damond by Minneapolis police officer Mohammed Noor.

    Mayor of Minneapolis: Jacob Frey, Democratic–Farmer–Labor Party, 39 YO

    Hennepin County Attorney’s Office: Mike Freeman, Democratic–Farmer–Labor Party, son of Orville Freeman, Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party Governor of Minnesota from 1955 to 1961.

    Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison, African-American, Democratic–Farmer–Labor Party. Ellison is taking over as Lead Prosecutor from Mike Freeman after 10 members of the Minnesota state legislature complained that “their constituents of color, have lost faith in the ability of Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman to fairly and impartially investigate and prosecute these cases.”

    Governor of Minnesota Tim Walz, Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party.

    All the politicians and officials listed above have talked a good game of Reforming the Police, making them more Ethical and Accountable, Community Oriented Policing, Yada, Yada, Yada, but it proved to be All Talk.

      Who is responsible for the death of George Floyd?

      The short and long answer is George Floyd! A career criminal (armed home invasion) high on Fentanyl (or some other opiate) decided to resist arrest and feeling invincible fight four police officers one of whom had to forcibly restraint Floyd (Floyd at 6′ 7″ and very muscular) at which point the drugs he had taken killed him just as they kill tens of thousands of Americans each year.

      Frey lit the match which started the conflagration. He is the one who cast the arrest in racial terms saying “being black shouldn’t be a death sentence”. This remark is incredibly irresponsible, divisive, destructive and stupid. It is completely at odds with the facts.

      Once rioting began, he “gave it space”.

      Frey is a virtue signalling fool who set the country ablaze. He should apologize, resign, and disappear from public life.

      Troublemaker10,

      This is seriously so creepy. I am trying to avoid the “convenience ” of Amazon, but it is hard with so many local small businesses “deemed” non essential.

      What happens when Amazon is the only choice? They openly allow 3rd party sellers to price gouge, especially on scarce items.
      Good example, Kirkland toilet paper, unavailable for shipment because of covid, and now riots, Took a screenshot just now.
      If available at your local Costco, $19.99.

      right now on Amazon,

      $49.95 + $16.12 shipping

      or $79.79 + free shipping

        Scalpers are very quick to spot the newest need, buy it up, then gouge on price. Good example recently, PPE, isopropyl alcohol, hand sanitizer. masks during the covid19 panic.

    So I looked up this reply tweet to a tweet someone posted about President Trump’s visit to St. John’s church today. The woman bishop of this church denounces his visit! What has happened to our church? It’s been infiltrated by communists! They claim they tear gassed the protesters to clear for POTUS to visit. She says he didn’t ask in advance (why should he? He didn’t go inside, he was on the sidewalk!) and said he came to share a message that was antithetical to the teachings of Jesus Christ! I’m not going to link the articles but the name is Bishop Mariann Budde and see what this so-called woman of Christ has to say. “Let me be clear………I am outraged…..I can’t believe what my eyes have seen.”

    I know, this is DC, but I’ve been very disturbed by some of our organized religious denominations, they’ve been hijacked by leftists.

    Okay, found the interview. These people are so far gone, there is no hope with these people if they see what she is describing. God forbid he visits the church that was set on fire the night before by the people she is calling “peaceful protesters”. He is our President! He is standing tall for our country and for the church. I can only hope and pray we win the election. I don’t know how much this grieves our President, to have this kind of reaction. Slings and arrows.

          It’s so sad to see so many men/women of the cloth spew such nonsense.

          Grandmas Bible Hebrides Revival is terrific, and stirs something deep in me. I was born in Scotland, and have been to the Hebrides, and have visited their tiny churches in my youth.

          I appreciate there are many church goers on this site, and this site has been instrumental in me having a bible bedside.

          That said, and I appreciate it’s a generalization, but a significant number of priests, pastors and minsters are really soft and spineless.

          A few of us met at a local church today to discuss with the minister new rules for our respective groups, post Covid.

          The minister seems like a decent sort, but goodness me what a Marshmallow.

          Lefty talking points galore, as he regurgitates our socialist politicians talking points.

          Our group will be moving on, and will now find another venue. Considerably less income for the church.

          We hear several other churches in the community are struggling. All appear to have socialist clergy.

          They continue to see their congregations age, dwindle and die. Yet seem unable to look at their own part in it.

          Liberalism truly is a mental disorder.

      Over here in what was once a bastion of democracy (ok I tend to exaggerate).
      all the players of Liverpool Football Club went down on one knee around the centre circle on Monday.
      They said it was in support of Black Lives Matter – whatever that is.
      They were in training and no spectators. Naturally the biased BBC were having organisms as a result.
      Now LFC is probably the second most popular and influential club among the young especially.
      A few items about the club.
      They are majority owned by an outfit called Fenway Sports Group. The boss is a bloke called John Henry. He also owns the Boston Red Socks and a basketball team. One of the other shareholders someone called James LeBron – I think
      The team is coached by a German noted for his left wing opinions.
      This guy Henry also owns a Marxist rag called the Boston Globe.
      LFC have many black players both British born and imports. Their star is an Egyptian called Mohammed.
      Back in the early eighties, Liverpool experienced catastrophic racial riots known as the Toxteth Riots and has barely recovered. Toxteth was a transit area for the slave trade upon which Liverpool’s affluence was based, and had/has a large black population.
      So that together with thousands of criminal gangs gathering in London on Sunday whilst the police ignored their quarantine regulations tells you that the Anifa pandemic is well established over here.
      BTW on Sunday in London whilst the criminals were ignored, the police were issuing fines to any one breaking the “lockdown” regulations. So yes, we are right on your hymn sheet in Europe.

    Conspiracy theories are appealing because they impose an artificial order on the world.

    It’s very hard to accept that a ridiculous loser like Oswald killed JFK: far more comforting to blame the CIA or the Mafia, if you’re on the Left, or the Cubans or the Russians, if you’re a conservative.

    But a far more prevalent force could be called the zeitgeist, the spirit of the age. The assumptions and tropes widely held in the culture, the evanescent truths of the day.

    We now call these things political correctness, or dogma, if it’s the belief system of the other guy.

    Rioting and looting is widespread, and yet our police forces and politicians, across the country, refuse to intervene. Why?

    As many have observed, the culture war is nearly over, and the Left won. In Michigan, the pot shops remain open during the Corona lockdown, while the churches are forced to stay closed. A thousand examples are to hand, but that one is striking.

    Leftists are mostly atheist, and they do not believe in an after-life: that huge assumption, more than any other, is guiding public policy now. The criminal killed by the police loses everything: no after-life awaits him. The magnitude of the potential wrong done by the policeman who kills the criminal is thereby hugely increased.

    The leftist assumption that property is theft also heavily informs public policy. The progressive tax system denies the British common law truth that your property is yours alone. Your home is your castle? No more. The looter is no longer a criminal without a defence. Stealing bread to feed your starving children is an eternal debate. Stealing TVs? Now you’re addressing social inequality.

    So many police are conflicted by their duty, in the end, to protect property. Yes, it’s going to often be the rich man’s property, because he has more of it. In America, the poor man is equally entitled to the protection of his property, and the poor man can less afford to lose it. After the ill-advised Corona lockdown, many storekeepers cannot afford any more setbacks. The looters are dealing them one now. It is absolutely not the place of the police to decide, now or ever, who deserves protection, and who doesn’t. The written law and the courts decide that. Not you, flatfoot, not you.

    Look what all the 1968 anarchy did. Destroy the Dems in the election. And give identity and solidarity to the silent majority.

    And the chaos over asasinations, war, European revolts, student and cultural unrest was severe and entrenched. But when protests turned from peace ideals to underground radicalism the left was beaten to a pulp electorially.

    Unfortunately the bitterness of their loss resulted in an intense campaign of ideological brainwashing in colleges and media. And became the source of values informing a large segment of present day swamp figures. Removing Nixon has always been their cherished achievement and an inspiration that motivates current actions. With so many more tricks and affiliations added to the basic play book over the years. . .

    But in the end, normal Americans crushed the radicals. Demographics have changed a lot, as well as so many other facets of society. But at this moment in history the semi silent majority are still behind Trump and traditionalism. And the chaos of this week really doesn’t damage electoral map preferences enough. The anarchy in blue cities comes from those who would never vote for Trump under any circumstances. He isn’t going to lose what he never had.

    Cheating is the defining issue. The very last card the left can play. Expect desperation and schemes like never before. If they can organize and mobilize so quickly now, it might be a preview of how they can operate in sync and co-ordinate between themselves. With the media complicit.

    Vigilence and immediate action will be necessary throughout the process. No extra stalling and opportunity to cook the books. No deferring to corrupt practices because of past habits. Try and keep it as clean and clinical as possible.

    11:30 pm in my upper middle class AZ suburb governor has issued a curfew until June 8th.
    I went out for food and to check things out. Curfew was not being enforced, I drove around the city and saw zero police, but saw a few people that looked like out of state antifa.

    The other night we had looting at our local high end shopping mall maybe 150 people
    lots of them were young punks.Our police were tipped off by an ex intern in the afternoon
    about the event being organized on Social media the police monitored and knew it was coming but did nothing. The organizers said that they were “going to teach white people a lesson” Millions of dollars of damage was done while a low number of cops stood by and watched.

    The police in a later interview said they wouldn’t risk officer safety over property.
    One lone store owner in the mall kept his store safe by holding off the punks with a baseball bat as the mall was looted for several hours before the police entered at 2:00am after everyone left.

    The governor condemned our suburbs handling of the situation. I called the police and complained and they said they did there best and hung up. I can not express my outrage.
    This was superposed to be one of the safest suburbs in my state.

They can replace the stolen merchandise and fix the damage. But if a cop got killed protecting their “stuff”, that life is irreplaceable. Much more valuable than any stolen goods.

      Record the thieves on video, and arrest them later, one by one. These are looters, not murderers. It’s despicable behavior, but I agree, not worth risking any officer’s life.

      The lesson to be learned is the question of what matters more, lives or material goods.

          Generally speaking on Property policies and inland marine policies, damage to property and equipment caused by a rioting mob is covered.

          Most policies are essentially all risk, except for excluded causes of loss. Riots and looting are not typically excluded.

          In fact, riots are typically included, because they include the following:
          -Vandalism
          -Rioting and civil commotion
          -Fire
          -Malicious mischief

          Rioting and civil commotion are typically included in “Specified Causes of Loss”.

          If there is a Covered Cause of Loss to property, then business income and extra expense would also be covered (assuming those coverages were purchased).

          I spent 34 plus years in Law Enforcement, and I don’t know where this nonsense is coming from. I took an oath to protect and serve the citizenry and property. It’s the leadership that is at fault. The P O’s on the street will engage if they have backup and are allowed.
