    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.

    – New info and wall calculateion number crunching scenarios for 16 CATs.

    – – – – –
    ***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: (7/26/19) Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle visited Project 1 and showed their support during the Wall Symposium.
    ***Praise: 👍 (11/20/19)… DHS Secretary Chad Wolf & CBP Chief gave a huge endorsement to WeBuildTheWall & Fisher industries project 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, totaling $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: 🧱 (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 floodplain.

    ***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)
    ***PRAISE: (6/11/20)… Foreman Mike stated that Fisher Industries now has ~95 miles of border wall contracts out of the 450. (Of the 95, only ~73 miles are accounted for in the federal awards we know about, which leaves ~21 miles from contract(s) we do not yet know about.)

    🙏 Prayer for the work crews. 🙏
    Heavenly Father, we pray in Jesus’ name (& according to Your will):
    – for safety, health, and good weather for the work crews as they continue working on WBTW’s private projects… as well as Fisher’s Federal 7.6M/800 foot contract, the 400M/31 mile contract, the 1.28B/42 mile contract for border wall, and any other projects they may be working on; that Fisher would be able to continue uninterrupted until completion.
    – that Fisher would be able to safely and smoothly transition(scale up w/ equipment & training of work crews) to be able to build 1+(to 2?) miles of wall per day.
    (Tommy Fisher has previously stated that, given a large enough project, they would be able to build 1 mile of wall per day within 3 months. So this process may have started as early as mid-April or May 6th… and will possibly be ramped up by mid-August??? Just a guess…)

    – 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 potential issues(erosion, construction, maintenance, etc.) and the lawsuits would be dismissed.
    (July 8)… Hearing summary…
    Representative’s for Fisher admits “there are overgrown grass and weeds and soil erosion at the site.”
    “Fisher Industries, is working to smooth out the embankment and re-seed grass that hasn’t taken…”
    Engineers from both sides haven’t been able to come together yet for a hydrology meeting.
    “Both sides expressed frustration at the lack of input from Mexican officials but blamed it on the ongoing pandemic that has struck Mexico particularly hard. ”
    “Crane — who in January ruled that the government had not provided enough evidence to stop construction of the private border wall — said he would reset the hearing for 30 more days.”
    Crane said “I really do expect by then engineers will have gotten together and I hope there is some progress on areas where grass didn’t take.”
    Fisher told BorderReport that “it takes time for the grass to grow in the sand and so areas where the grass hasn’t taken hold yet we’ll fix” … “And then if there’s any spots that it looks like it’s going to just becoming a problem then that’s where we’ll put riprap (rubble).”

    – for Fisher crews to be able fix any issues related to erosion, reseeding of grass, and applying riprap (rubble) or concrete where necessary at Project 2

    – 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 WBTW/Fisher Industries 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
    – (May 29 – CBP notice)… for Fisher to come up with innovative solutions or improvements requested by CBP “related to the anti-climb/anti-cut features of the border wall” (Deadline: June 12)
    – 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 &/or Fisher Industries to build 250+ miles of wall on Private Property in Texas
    (…assuming the “water wall” design is shown to work and be appropriate in the floodplain)
    – 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 🌟

      Holcombe Mixers Joins $1.3 Billion Border Wall Project In Yuma, Arizona
      https://www.prweb.com/releases/holcombe_mixers_joins_1_3_billion_border_wall_project_in_yuma_arizona/prweb17224370.htm

      Excerpts:
      – Holcombe Mixers, a worldwide provider of volumetric concrete mixers and strategic solutions for the concrete industry, teamed up with Fisher Sand and Gravel and Cat® Construction to fast-track the major border wall construction project along Arizona’s southern border.
      – “Working with Holcombe Mixers has been a game changer,” said Tommy Fisher, President and CEO of Fisher Sand and Gravel. “We made a commitment to President Trump, the Department of Homeland Security, and the US Army Corps of Engineers to get the wall up faster, and do it financially smarter. Generally, you’re pouring 2-5 loads per day. With Holcombe Mixers, we can pour 20-25 loads of fresh concrete each day and not have to worry about it exceeding required temperatures.
      – Pouring high volumes of concrete in remote areas with hot and arid climates like Arizona’s creates extreme challenges to mitigate the concrete from setting up too quickly when mixed in a traditional drum mixer. Volumetric mixers from Holcombe are able to mix fresh concrete on site at the point of the pour. The low- and high ad-mixture systems add an additional layer of flexibility to ensure that the concrete being produced can be placed and finished in any extreme condition.
      – “An element of control is key for a project that demands not only durability, but also the volume of fresh concrete that needs to be poured 16 hours a day,” said Brent Holcombe, Managing Partner of Holcombe Mixers.
      – “Our 12-yard aggregate bins have supported a 120% increase to the standard payload where daily concrete pour goals can be achieved and ultimately surpassed. We are thrilled to be part of this visionary team effort.”

      Holcombe dispatches volumetric mixers to 45-mile, Arizona border wall site
      http://concreteproducts.com/news/12414-holcombe-dispatches-volumetric-mixers-to-45-mile-arizona-border-wall-site.html

      New info from article.
      – Fisher now has at least 16 CAT excavators. I think the most I’ve seen in a photo before was 13 or 14.
      – They are working 2 shifts. (16 hours per day) Now we just have to guess how many concrete pours can be poured during those 16 hours. (My guess is between it’s between 4 to 6 pours in a 16 hour period.)

      Excerpts:
      – Holcombe Mixers is providing eight, high payload volumetric mixer trucks in partnership with Fisher Sand & Gravel and Cat Construction to fast-track a wall on Arizona’s southern border…
      – “We made a commitment to President Trump, Homeland Security, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to get the wall up faster, and do it financially smarter. Generally, you’re pouring two to five loads per day. With Holcombe Mixers, we can pour 20 to 25 loads of fresh concrete each day and not have to worry about it exceeding required temperatures,” says Tommy Fisher, whose Dickinson, N.D., business secured a major part of the contract on the strength of a proprietary post and bollard system meeting Homeland Security and Corps performance criteria for a U.S.-Mexico border wall.
      – The partnership equips Fisher S&G crews for speed and volume across a remote area where hot, arid conditions rule. Along with one Holcombe HM10H and seven HM12H volumetric models, a fleet of 16 Cat 390E track excavators is deployed to precisely hold and locate fixtured bollard posts in place as concrete footings are poured and set up.
      – The HM12H heavy duty volumetric model is supported by the concrete industry’s only patented removable cassette conveyor that allows for belt changes in as little as five hours, he adds. Projects can stay on schedule with minimal downtime while saving horsepower and fuel with a frictionless conveyor roller floor and no-lubrication pintle conveyor chain delivering thousands of yards of service.

      HM10H | 10-Yard Volumetric Concrete Trucks
      “The HM10H is Holcombe’s #1 domestic seller with a capacity of 10 cubic yards that carry 110 cubic feet of cement. It’s the go-to workhorse concrete mixer in the United States, striking the perfect balance between legal load weight and capacity when set up with the correct chassis configuration. Although it’s up for any job, customers primarily use it for residential areas, narrow roads, and storm-ravaged areas where other mixers can’t easily go.”

      16 CATS
      – 1 concrete pour = 512 feet.

          I think there are two different usages for the term “concrete pour.”
          – The first would be doing a pour for a complete CAT panel placement cycle
          – The second would be the number of pours the individual Holcombe mixer trucks have the capacity to do.
          – Also, how many mixer trucks does it take to fill the trench length where 16 CATs are placing their panels?

          I think those pour figures are for the potential pour capacity for individual trucks.

          The complete cycle is more limited.

          – Fisher only has 16 CATs and so many crews. You have trenching & rebar, panel placement, the actual pour, drying time and the final release of the panels from the CATS so they can pick up new loads.
          – I’m not sure what the current turnaround time is for the above steps. (Maybe 3 to 4 hours?)

            I take the 16 CATS to be at capacity, within variance of temperature I guess, with the rest of their current equipment.

            I think they’re implying they will scale up with the greater capacity of the Holcombes.

            • Stillwater says:

              That’s my take as well… the CATs being the limiting factor. Also, that 45 mile stretch has some very mountainous terrain so the ability to build roads ahead of the CATs may be a limiting factor as well.

              At Project one I remember Tommy Fisher saying they were willing to scale up to 30 CATs if they had a large enough stretch of wall to build. Foreman Mike said something similar w/ regard to Fisher as well.

              From the articles about Holcome mixers, it states that Fisher has 16 CATs at the 45 mile job site. Fisher could possible have more CATs if they have other job locations they are working on.

              I was just thinking that the mixers will be pouring for both the trench as well as the concrete road along side already completed wall further back. So some of the concrete pours will be for the trench and and some for the concrete road.

        Practically no one spewing the daily talking points in the yellowstream or out of politician corruptocratic mouths is saying something original.

      Just like the FBI was too busy wiretapping the President to catch real criminals like the San Bernardino terrorist or school shooter Nikolas Cruz, and mayors are too busy coddling rioters to stop them from shooting little girls, so Twitter was too busy shadowbanning and censoring conservatives to protect their customers’ information.

    On 7-15-2020, my Texas State Senator Bob Hall hosted a Facebook Live forum of 6 Texas doctors that have successfully treated patients with Covid 19, with almost none of them ending up in the hospital. The video is 1 1/2 hours but worth it because they get into not only their successes with varying protocols, but also they get into the fact that there have been a lot of roadblocks on the part of government regulating agencies (FDA, CDC, NIH, TMA, politicians and media, too) to not allowing these already-proven, safe medications to be used as the standard of care for their off-label use in treating covid patients. The doctors said that they have been harassed and slandered by these same agencies for speaking out about their use of these medications in their protocols.

    They make the valid point that it’s unethical to do double-blind studies on Covid patients while people are dying. It’s also unethical not to allow these medications to be used as standard of care for their off-label use while people are dying. They say that Covid 19 should not be feared because they have effective treatment protocols now, outside of a hospital setting. They insist that the nation should open up now. And that schools should open up in the fall.

    They make the valid point that it’s unethical to allow a political agenda to dictate how we are to treat patients with this virus. Patients that have died due to their agenda.

    This video is literally a matter of life or death… it should be watched and shared by everyone!

      It looks like the video disappeared. I watched it all. EXCELLENT! Thanks for posting. Hopefully you can get it uploaded again. It is so important that I hope Sundance will have time to put it up as an individual thread. Everyone should know about the possibility to treat COVID-19: early treatment, HCQ+AZ+Zn or inhaled steroids. Supplemented with vitamins. In later stage probably best also add anti-coagulants.

      Some very positive thinking among these physicians, sounded like they were going to take the fight to the regulatory agencies – maybe via the WH.

      Just a quick point. Lots of discussions about my country, Sweden, and what has been going on there. I have written before that it is one thing to discuss the strategy of Sweden – non-closure – but unless you look at the granularity of the actual facts one may well miss the whole point. I don’t think our strategy was wrong, but implemented in a faulty way – not able to protect the old-age homes, not understanding that our new ghettos would be the most vulnerable areas (for a lot of reasons), not being able to procure enough testing equipment etc etc – it did not turn out very well.

      However, another point is the way we have treated our sick. Initially hydroxychloroquine was used at least in some hospital districts, but since the received wisdom (just as discussed in this video) was that patients should only be treated when very ill and not before, HCQ was used in intensive care settings, where it probably has very little effect. At the same time our health authorities decided to make it harder to prescribe CQ and HCQ for anyone except specialists in rheumatology and infectious diseases. That meant that most patients visiting the ER or their GP would not get any treatment until it was time for oxygen in ICU-settings. And given our socialized medicine very few doctors complained.
      Presently, the regulated prescription of HCQ will remain in force until 31 October, and no use of HCQ will be allowed for COVID-19 except in accepted studies. As late as last month there were no studies involving CQ or HCQ ongoing in Sweden.
      This may well be one of the reasons for our high mortality rate.

        It’s so upsetting to me how HCQ has been slandered, misused in studies by giving patients a toxic dose, and now limited by regulatory agencies for being prescribed or even studied!

        And people have died due to their policies and agenda. It makes me so angry.

      The wording of the President’s tweet doesn’t imply replacement – it implies “doubling”:

      Donald J. Trump tweets: “I am pleased to announce that Bill Stepien has been promoted to the role of Trump Campaign Manager. Brad Parscale, who has been with me for a very long time and has led our tremendous digital and data strategies, will remain in that role, while being a Senior Advisor to the campaign.

      I read it more like that the President knows that Brad can’t do everything needed for this important election alone and is giving him a hand. But who knows…?

    DEMOCRATIC PARTY GOALS – HOW TO DESTROY AMERICA FROM WITHIN

    This is no joke – it’s 100% real. This is what Joe Biden and the democrats are planning if they can pull off their massive election fraud in November. All of the items listed below have been put forward by Biden and the democrat party.

    Biden gave a speech in which he said that the core of his economic agenda is a hard-left crusade against American energy. He wants to kill American energy. He wants to re-enter the unfair, one-sided Paris Climate Accord — which will destroy the US, while many other nations will benefit. 

    The democrats are planning to Impose massive energy taxes and job-crushing mandates to eliminate carbon from the United States economy. This would  obliterate American oil, clean coal, natural gas, and the natural energy resources that provide countless American jobs. America today is the world’s number one energy exporter. The democrats want to kill that. 

    Biden put a young radical socialist, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who was a bartender before becoming a congresswoman, in charge of his energy plan and the environment along with the communist Bernie Sanders. 

    Regarding immigrants, both legal and illegal:

    Abolish immigration detention. No more detention. People crossing the border illegally will not be detained. Anyone will be able to walk right into the country. 

    Stop all deportation. This will, of course, include violent gang members from gangs such as MS13.

    End prosecution of illegal border crossers. 

    Expand asylum for all new illegal aliens. Cancel all asylum cooperation agreements in the Western Hemisphere. 

    Provide taxpayer-funded lawyers to all illegal aliens. Abolish any and all immigration enforcement against illegal workers.  

    Grant work permits for illegal aliens. All illegal immigrants will be able to obtain a work permit.

    Provide taxpayer subsidies and welfare for illegal aliens and new immigrants.  

    Provide government healthcare for all illegal aliens.

    Provide Federal Student Aid and free community college for illegal aliens. 

    Sign new immigrants up for welfare immediately. 

    End requirement for immigrants’ self-sufficiency and maximize their welfare. 

    Grant mass amnesty and create a roadmap to citizenship for all illegal immigrants.

    Vastly expand low-skilled immigration to the United States. There go the jobs for both black and white Americans with low skill sets.

    Increase refugee admissions by 700 percent. 

    End all travel bans, including from jihadist regions. 

    Regarding crime and punishment:

    End cash bail. No bail will be required in order to be set free after committing a crime.

    Abolish the death penalty.

    Appoint social justice prosecutors in order to free violent criminals.

    End mandatory minimum sentences. This would empower judges to determine appropriate sentences or even let criminals go free without punishment.

    End solitary confinement as a punishment for out of control prisoners. 

    Provide free federal housing for former inmates. After a criminal leaves prison they get free housing. Who said crime doesn’t pay?

    Regarding the communist invented climate change hoax:

    Rejoin the Paris Climate Accord and seek an even higher level of climate restrictions.

    Mandate net-zero carbon emissions for homes, offices, and all new buildings by 2030. 

    Mandate zero carbon emissions from power plants by 2035. Zero means that absolutely nothing at all can be released into the air.

    Mandate all 500,000 school buses and all 3 million government vehicles in the US be changed to zero-emission vehicles within five years.

    Install 500,000 taxpayer-funded charging stations nationwide for electric vehicles.

    Regarding Education:

    End school choice. All schools will be run solely by the government. Private schools will be shut down.

    Abolish all educational standards.

    Regarding Housing:

    Low-income housing (ghettos) will be forcibly built in all middle class and upper class neighborhoods. This is obviously aimed at destroying America’s middle class.

    To add to all of this, Biden described the rise of China as, quote, “a very positive development. He wants to defund the military. This, while the Chinese are building a massive military. Biden described the rise of China as, quote, “a very positive development.”

        To staff these kinds of task forces it’s often “hiring by organizational chart”, I’d presume

        So I don’t think it’s particularly constructive to fault Pence for Fauci’s hiring

        … except to learn the lesson that you can’t hire by organizational chart and instead must mount vetting teams who can dig around and ask questions until they turn up those “epidemiologists who loathed and mocked him as a buffoon”

        We simply need more sharks, more killers on Team Trump

        Guys of the caliber of Stephen Miller in terms of intellect and with killer, assassin instincts

        And you need to put guys like that in charge because Pence obviously is no killer, no shark

        You can put a guy like Pence in that position as a figurehead, but he’s got to have oversight, a minder, who can report back to Pres so that Pres can keep him in line if need be

        So to summarize – Fauci should have been much, much more thoroughly vetted, but apparently no vetting mechanism was put in place or it was inadequate

    Opinion Piece: How to Go On the Offensive Against the Mask Nazis

    Since my encounters with the Mask Nazis on Monday, I’ve been researching a strategy to take them down. Here’s a strategy that I believe should work in most cases as most of these mask mandates have exemption clauses.

    First off, my local mask exemption:

    Exception: A person who has one or more medical conditions or disabilities that prevent wearing a face covering, including anyone who has trouble breathing or is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove a face covering without assistance. A person asserting this exception for medical conditions or disabilities is not required to carry or produce documentation verifying the health condition to a business or law enforcement.

    This is the paragraph I read to the idiot bank guard who then smugly cited the CDC “guidelines”. However, what I didn’t know at the time, but found later in in a comment on another site, is that these almighty guidelines have this in them:

    The CDC says that if you have a physical/mental issue and would be harmed by wearing a mask, you don’t have to do it……

    How much clearer can that be that if it harms you health you don’t have to wear it?

    This comment also said this in the same paragraph:
    The CDC says that if you have a physical/mental issue and would be harmed by wearing a mask, you don’t have to do it. And under the ADA, you are not required to disclose any medical condition to anyone. The Department of Justice ADA violation reporting number is 1-800-514-0301. If found in violation of the ADA, the violator could face steep penalties. Organizations and businesses can be fined up to $92,383 for the first ADA violation, and $184,767 for subsequent violations.
    So, today, Gateway Pundit had up an article about how big corp such as Walmart, Best Buy, BJs etc. are joining the Mask Nazi army and bringing their mask tyranny to all places, even those that don’t currently have it:

    https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/07/walmart-sams-clubs-new-coronavirus-mask-mandate-customers-enforced-black-shirt-health-ambassadors/

    So how can we fight the Mask Nazi Army? Well, of course there can be lawsuits which are time consuming and expensive; the legal foundation is on our side. For example, in commenting on the legality of these mask mandates, AG Landry of Louisiana says:

    “Although the mask mandate and the 50-person limit may be good recommendations for personal safety, they may not be enforced with financial or criminal penalties,” Landry wrote. “Both businesses acting under color of law as mask police and actual police acting as mask police could face liability if individual civil rights are violated due to the proclamation.”
    Landry also said that the Governor has no power to make substantive law through an executive order, even in an emergency and asserts that the mask mandate “exposes individuals to unlawful searches and seizures, as well as burdens them with exposing potentially sensitive personal health information and having it exposed to others in a public setting.”

    “The mask mandate flatly violates due process, separation of powers, the delegation clause, state public accommodation anti-discrimination laws and it is unenforceable,”

    So, if you had the dollars and the time, a civil suit against these businesses would likely, eventually prevail. Over the years, I’ve been in necessary litigation a few times in my life and it takes years and a lot of money even if you prevail. But these days, who has that kind of time and money? But there IS another faster and inexpensive solution that I believe will get results.

    The Feds have already given us the tools to take down the Mask Nazis without spending a lot of years and money. Here is how I see it. I would not recommend doing this at one of the Globalist banks who have all your private information and can retaliate but it would work at local businesses and the big corp stores.

    This mask issue is a civil rights issue. And it’s ironic that us older, health impaired people can lead the fight for all people on this issue. We, due to our health and age, have the ability to effectively take the fight to the enemy. Yes, this requires some courage, action, and some confrontation but our personal freedom is at stake.

    Those of us who have breathing issues or other conditions that we cannot tolerate deprivation of oxygen have the power to act. People with heart disease, mild congestive heart failure, poor circulation, asthma, mild COPD, etc that are documented in the medical records have more power over the Mask Nazis than you think.

    This is a situation where a handful of people can make a very large difference. Just a steady stream of people challenging the Mask Nazis around the USA at the various stores will serve as an inspiration to all. If you have a health issue that makes oxygen deprivation a problem and feel bold enough to stand up for your rights, I would suggest you have a witness with you that knows your health status and to help you document the confrontation, e.g. video and audio recording.

    Go to a big box store or a grocery store. These days, you will likely be confronted about not wearing a mask. Of course, you are ready for it.

    When confronted by the Mask Nazi, inform the gate keeper that you have a medical condition that makes it dangerous for you to deprive yourself of oxygen by wearing a mask. As per the federal guidelines, you do NOT have to disclose your health condition, simply state that you have it. Of course, your medical records document it but you don’t have to tell them.

    Inform the Mask Nazi gate keeper that the CDC guidelines clearly state that you do NOT have to wear a mask with said health conditions because a mask endangers your health.

    If you are dealing with someone with a brain, that should be enough to allow access, however it’s been my experience that the low level employees, even managers, will obey the mindless corp demand like the Nazi death camp guards. So, be prepared, after all you came prepared for a confrontation, don’t be shy, stand your ground. Here are some possible outcomes.

    They acknowledge your exemption but still refuse to let you in the store. They offer to let someone shop for you. This is NOT acceptable. For myself, I never let someone pick out my food or anything else for that matter. No one knows what you personally want or your quality standards. Refuse and tell them you have the right to shop for yourself and are capable of shopping for yourself and that right is protected under the American’s with Disabilities Act (they know this. Why do you think they have all those electric carts?).

    If they still won’t let you in to shop for yourself, ask them if, since you disclosed that wearing a mask is a health hazard to yourself and you have the right to shop for yourself like everyone else, if they are aware they are violating the Americans with Disabilities act by refusing you admission. Get them to say something, yea or nay, doesn’t matter. You want them on record that they know you are exempt from wearing a mask but are trying to force you to do so anyway by depriving you of entry to shop and thus, are in the process of violating the ADA. Inform them you are going to report them to the DOJ ADA violations hotline. You warned them.

    Then, turn around, leave and promptly call the DOJ toll free hotline for ADA violations and turn them in. If you have a medically documented condition that makes low oxygen hazardous, you have grounds for the complaint and the idiots at the CDC have given you the grounds to do so in their “guidelines.”

    I suspect if the DOJ started getting hundreds or thousands of complaints about ADA violations by these big corps, local businesses etc. the corps and local businesses would change their tune really fast but that’s JMHO.

    Now to stand up to them takes some grit. Most people would rather just avoid the confrontation but this mask thing is more serious than it looks; it’s a clear civil rights violation and a violation of our Constitutional freedoms. The apathy of the people of Germany led to the Nazi take over; the Nazis started chipping away at freedom a small step at a time over and over until a mountain had been built and it was too late to stop it by the majority of the people who were not Nazis.

    Using the law to stand up to these bullies is the only thing that will get their attention. Not buying stuff won’t do it but creating a lot of red tape for them with ADA violation complaints will, and will cost nothing but a little time. A civil lawsuit would probably work but would take years and cost a lot of money. We need results NOW!

    It’s time we start fighting back now against the mask tyranny before things escalate which is exactly what the leftists intend. So we of the Granddaddy and Granny brigade need to mobilize and go on the OFFENSE. If you are a young person with asthma, JOIN US! As I said, us old folks have the power to fix things for everyone. Let’s use that power. What say you?

      What if you do not have a medical condition to preclude you from mask wearing? There goes the lawsuit for bluffing.

        I suspect that if they get enough complaints filed by people with health conditions that cannot be seen, they will be less likely to challenge a claim.

        Since the CDC guideline states if you have a physical/mental issue and would be harmed by wearing a mask, you don’t have to do it…… Since the guideline states physical or mental issues as a cause for an exemption (e.g of mental: wearing a mask makes me have a panic attack) you can rightfully claim the exemption. If they deny it, you just don’t file a complaint with the DOJ. No loss for you but you need to tell them you are filing a complaint anyway. Psych them out.. Just my thoughts.

        Say nicely and without malice, “Did you know that refusing entrance to your business to a person with a medical disability is equivalent to refusing to allow someone in due to race?”

        If the door guard decides to argue the “medical reasons why you ‘should’” simply ask him/her if he/she knows the penalty for practicing medicine without a license in your state, and whether he/she has such a license.

        Smile and kindly ask the the “door guard” for her/his name, address, phone#. Tell him/her that you will need the information for your attorney should you choose to file a federal lawsuit due to ADA violations or Civil Rights violations, and in case you also choose to file a civil suit for damages, which would, likely include his/her PERSONAL finances as well as the store itself and the corporate headquarters. When he/she refuses the info, just smile and say “That’s okay, my attorney can easily find that through your employer records; I was just asking to save him some time.”

        Say, “I would most likely just start through the ADA hotline anyway.”

        And, instead of giving a paper with your medical info on it, print out the paragraphs of the CDC guideline and the ADA guideline that apply, as well as exceptions stated in your own state’s guidelines. ADA guideline is also based on non-discrimination USA Bill of Rights amendment, so type that out too. And don’t fail to include penalty amounts listed for ADA violations, and the hotline number, just to let the gate guard know these exist.

        Then say, “My condition also makes it such that I cannot stand out here in the summer heat while you take these papers to your store manager, so you really have no choice but to either allow me in or tell me you are violating my rights right now. I will be using my cell phone to record your answer.”

        All of this should be done very low key, smiling politely, making as little scene as possible: the guard should be fearful but not irate. He/she may be just trying to earn a living for her/his family and might even welcome a chance to “defeat” the mask ordinances.

        You will be allowed in. His/her store manager will get the paper you presented.

        If you should then be accosted and ushered out, leave quietly. DO CALL the ADA hotline. The manager was warned in explicit terms and cannot deny knowledge, and neither can the store security guard.

        I suggest printing out a few copies for your car each time you go out.

      • soozword, thank you for saying that. If you legitimately have a medical condition that precludes you from wearing a mask and are denied service then you have a legitimate lawsuit. IF however, you are lying and pretending that you have a medical condition that prevents you from wearing a mask and are denied service THEN YOU DO NOT HAVE A LEGITIMATE LAWSUIT. So there were no ADA laws broken.
        Private businesses can require whatever attire they so desire. Right now, under the threat of their political “betters” they are doing this. I hate wearing a mask but I don’t want to see these small businesses be punished even more than they already have. I just dummy up and put on the mask so that they can stay opened and feed their families.
        When the time comes, I will vote out every piece of garbage that forced us to do this. Then we will have our vengeance.

          We need to do far more than voting out people when election time comes around. It will take attending public meetings, writing letters, calling, etc. I used to do all that but got burned out — much easier to recede into my little piece of heaven and hope some sanity comes about.
