    ***Today’s Fisher Industries / WeBuildTheWall posts***
    (Previous posts:

    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 private wall content until the next project(s) are near completion. However, Fisher Industries is proceeding full speed ahead on at least 112 miles of federal border wall contracts.

    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.
    – – – – –
    Monday night update – 8/10/20 – (See link above.)

    – Chief Rodney Scott tweet w/ Border Wall System update: 275 miles completed.
    (10 miles more since last week; 10 miles average per week over the past 4 weeks…)

    – Video footage from a boat at Project 2.

    – – – – –
    Tuesday night update – 8/11/20

    – 4 photos from Fisher’s wall project(s) in Arizona…
    (Shows new views of the crane and rack for pre-placement of the bollard panels.

    – – – – –
    ***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 & 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.

    ***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.
    (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 which have been reported.)
    • Update (8/3/20)… Fisher was awarded an additional contract for 17 miles. So Fisher probably has at least 112 miles, 90 miles of which have been reported on. Including the unreported awards, Fisher could have at least 124 miles of contract(s).

    ***Praise: (7/6/20)… Fisher has partnered with Holcombe Mixers “to fast-track border wall construction.” Holcombe is providing one Holcombe HM10H and seven HM12H volumetric models which can pour 20 to 25 loads of fresh concrete each day (vs. 2 to 5 loads with a traditional drum mixer) without exceeding required temperatures.

    ***PRAISE: 🧱 (8/3/20)… Fisher Industries was awarded a $289.5M contract to build ~17 miles of contiguous new border wall in Laredo Sector located in Webb County, Texas.

    🙏 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 Fisher’s Federal 7.6M/800 foot contract, the 400M/31 mile contract, the 1.28B/42 mile contract, the $289.5M/17 mile contract for border wall… as well as WBTW’s private projects, 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, manpower, etc.) 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)
    ***Praise:… Update: 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, differences of opinion on potential deflection of water off the wall during flood events, etc.) and the lawsuits would be dismissed.
    (July 8)… Hearing summary…
    – for the next hearing in Judge Randy Crane’s court which was reset for an additional 30 days at the joint request of the U.S. Gov. & Fisher to the first week in September.

    – for Fisher crews at Project 2 as they continue to fill/fix any issues related to erosion, reseeding of grass (hydroseed), applying rip-rap (rubble) or concrete where necessary; or applying fabric that binds the soil or rocks until the erosion control grass is established and able to hold the sand/soil in place.
    – for Fisher crews as they (1) regrade and repack soil, and then (2) lay down a road made of rock (between 1 & 3 inches large) 10 feet wide from edge of the concrete toward the river.
    – that Project 2 will eventually benefit the natural habitat; perhaps with the formation of its own riparian zone to prevent erosion at the river’s edge and benefit local flora/fauna… but without preventing operational access & visibility in CBP’s enforcement zone.

    – that Fisher would be able to come up with affordable, scalable, innovative solutions to greatly shorten the landscape establishment period and strengthen the long-term stability(resistance to erosion) for all types of riverbank soil which may be encountered so that the landscape can handle the stronger hurricanes/waterflows which may arrive in the future
    Brainstorming possible solutions: Compost erosion control blanket, pneumatically blown in w/ seeds & other ingredients to a depth of at least 2”. Rapid growth & resistance to erosion from the start. Consistent outcome over variable soil/site conditions. Not sure how affordable/scalable the approach is though…
    Possible companies/products ?… (1) Rexius certified Terraseeding®/Ecoblanket®/Microblend® process; (2) Filtrexx® Compost Erosion Control Blanket™, etc.
    Or perhaps Fisher simply spreading the right mixture of topsoil/sand/clay over the surface, as they appear to be doing, would be all that’s required for the hydroseed to become rapidly established…

    – 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/USACE, 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.

      Photos from Fisher’s wall project(s) in Arizona…

      – Photo 1 was posted before but I’m including it again as it was part of this group of photos.
      – Photos 2 and 3 are new in the sense that I’ve never seen them before… though all of the photos are probably older as the bollards have not been painted black.
      – Photo 4 was the default photo on a video I’ve posted, but this is the first time I’ve seen the individual photo.
      – I’ve included the source links to the original twitter photos in case viewers want to go full screen and enlarge (Ctrl +/-) and for more detail. Use the arrow keys to navigate the enlarged image.

      1: There appears to be a portable, makeshift, wooden bridge (left) so workers can cross the trench.

      2: 5 CATs with a crane and loading rack in the distance.
      – Rust on bollards shows they were not painted black. So this photo is probably from the earlier 800 foot or 31 mile project in Arizona. I believe the 42 mile wall (AZ) and all future walls were to be painted black. (I am assuming the bollards would be pre-painted.)
      – Here is a blurry photo which was our first indication that a crane was being used to load the rack.

      3:This is our first clear photo of the crane and the front of the rack w/ part of the rack exposed.
      – Notches on bottom level of rack show how panels can be placed at different heights in relation to each other before being secured to the CAT hanger. This adjustment becomes necessary when the grade changes and the terrain is no longer flat.
      – Here is my prior post with photos showing the front and back of the rack for comparison. It also includes a photo showing the 16 securing mechanisms being used.

      4: 10 CATs lined up, holding sections of bollard panels in place while the concrete dries; and 2 Holcombe volumetric mixer trucks, one pouring concrete and one waiting on the left.

        I’m not certain that we will ever have herd immunity from the Kung Flu, Marian.

        We don’t have herd immunity from the common cold or seasonal flu. The China Virus might be similar in that respect. So maybe, maybe not. As *someone* is prone to say, “We’ll see.”

        Fortunately, herd immunity isn’t so important now that a variety of effective treatments have been found over the past six months. There were none at the beginning and many treatments were flat out the wrong thing to do.

        And it looks to be that the Trump Cocktail (HCQ + zinc + D3) is a highly effective preventative or cure if taken early. Ivermectin looks very good, too. So if herd immunity is possible and achieved, fine and good. And if not, well that’s OK too, since there are effective preventatives and treatments.

        We should get back to business as usual, herd immunity or not. I’m not counting on herd immunity – and it may happen, soon even – but we don’t need to pin any hope on it.

      (Not a lawyer so I’m certainly open to those who are who can dispute this… using as the reference)

      Tweet number (8), to me, is a flaw in the above. The text referenced in tweet (7) is the language that sets the (general) election date. Roughly put, the 1st Tuesday in November that is not the 1st day of November (i.e. somewhere between Nov 2 – Nov 7). It does not necessarily set the date the electors must be determined as the next section, Section 2, notes that: “Whenever any State has held an election for the purpose of choosing electors, and has failed to make a choice on the day prescribed by law, the electors may be appointed on a subsequent day in such a manner as the legislature of such State may direct.”

      While Section 5 does appear to set some deadlines in how controversies may be resolved, I would presume most states already have a process for this in place. There is some language giving a 6 day deadline prior to the meeting of the electors; but, that appears to be more that the rules must be in place no later than that.

      For example, in North Carolina ( if any elector has not been appointed by 6 days before the electors are to meet, then the general assembly is to choose. If the general assembly hasn’t decided by the day before the electoral meeting, then the governor gets to pick. There are some feigned limitations on who they may pick. (I say feigned as if it’s truly an election in dispute, the presumption would be that the choosers will side with their political party’s candidate – likely even if that candidate is trailing in the recounts).

      Section 7 of the US Code sets the date for the electoral meeting: the first Monday after the second Wednesday in December. (This year 12/14.) Based on that, North Carolina would have until Dec 7th or 8th to finalize their election – or the general assembly steps in, If the general assembly hasn’t agreed before Dec. 13th, then the Governor gets to pick.

      With NC having a non-veto proof republican majority in both houses, if it were to get to them due to an undecided election, I can already hear the calls to split the electoral votes. And if they allow themselves to fight over that and not choose, then the democratic governor gets to pick – and I’m sure the calls to split the electoral votes would magically disappear,

      New York’s true nursing home death toll cloaked in secrecy

      “…That’s a problem, bro,” state Sen. Gustavo Rivera, a Democrat, told New York Health Commissioner Howard Zucker during a legislative hearing on nursing homes earlier this month. “It seems, sir, that in this case you are choosing to define it differently so that you can look better.”

      How big a difference could it make? Since May, federal regulators have required nursing homes to submit data on coronavirus deaths each week, whether or not residents died in the facility or at a hospital. Because the requirement came after the height of New York’s outbreak, the available data is relatively small. According to the federal data, roughly a fifth of the state’s homes reported resident deaths from early June to mid July — a tally of 323 dead, 65 percent higher than the state’s count of 195 during that time period.

      Even if half that undercount had held true from the start of the pandemic, that would translate into thousands more nursing home resident deaths than the state has acknowledged.

      Another group of numbers also suggests an undercount. State health department surveys show 21,000 nursing home beds are lying empty this year, 13,000 more than expected — an increase of almost double the official state nursing home death tally. While some of that increase can be attributed to fewer new admissions and people pulling their loved ones out, it suggests that many others who aren’t there anymore died…”

        I have no link to provide, but at least in blueMA, some of the problem in the nursing homes (under the jurisdiction of RINO Baker!) was that they were in the habit of employing illegal immigrants – who, naturally, lived in overcrowded conditions likely to infect the workers and then bring the ControlaVirus right in to the most vulnerable.

        I also have no evidence that this issue has been addressed at all, if even mentioned!

        I can however confirm from word of mouth that the illegals were heavily employed there. One moonbat/TDS Level 6 case of my acquaintance was furious last year about the wall because “all those lovely people who took care of our elderly” might be deported.

        And of course now that all the nursing homes are locked down tight, who can see what goes on?

          I’ll also add to your information that I think everybody knows that in nursing homes and hospitals, you get better care if your visitors, help you get better care. The more frequent the better the care.

          Since the public was/is (?) banned, care would naturally plummet imo.

      We can no longer pretend that these dark forces are going to go away by mere prayer alone. Prayers matter, but action is required.

      This action is needed at the local, state and federal levels. Action is also required in the economic, media, clerical and ecclesiastical realms.

      Decide how you can act within your abilities. Stand up and state your beliefs. Be proud of who you are and what you stand for. And face, head-on, those community “leaders” who are willing to allow dark forces to go beyond peaceful protests and destroy and violate your safety and security.

      How to destroy America from within
      July 04, 2020

      What would you do if you wanted to destroy America?

      The first thing you would do is take control of the education system and teach children that they are living in an evil country. Then you would undermine the police, the military, and law enforcement. You’d use every opportunity you can to divide people by race, religion, and class. You would stoke feelings of grievance regardless of how much progress was being made to promote racial reconciliation and equal opportunity.


      All of these things have been done by the cultural and political left over the last 50 years. Unless the forces of family and faith rally soon, we will lose our constitutional republic.

      TikTok Tracked User Data Using Tactic Banned by Google
      The tactic, which experts in mobile-phone security said was concealed through an unusual added layer of encryption, appears to have violated Google policies

      “ TikTok skirted a privacy safeguard in Google’s Android operating system to collect unique identifiers from millions of mobile devices, data that allows the app to track users online without allowing them to opt out, a Wall Street Journal analysis has found.

      The tactic, which experts in mobile-phone security said was concealed through an unusual added layer of encryption, appears to have violated Google policies limiting how apps track people and wasn’t disclosed to TikTok users. TikTok ended the practice in November, the Journal’s testing showed.

      The findings come at a time when TikTok’s Beijing-based parent company, ByteDance Ltd., is under pressure from the White House over concerns that data collected by the app could be used to help the Chinese government track U.S. government employees or contractors. TikTok has said it doesn’t share data with the Chinese government and wouldn’t do so if asked.”

        Easy on the zinc, by the way. My brother’s in healthcare and cautioned that we get many vitamins and minerals from our diet and that it’s perhaps more advisable to get it there than long-term use of supplements.

        Zinc competes with copper so it’s good to talk to your doctor and have your blood levels tested. Also, the fine print in protocols mention cutting back zinc after 20 days, other periods and wording are used too.

        Brother recommended more of a “surge” strategy with zinc, upping intake depending on exposure – if there are days you’ll be in crowds, shopping, etc, dose a little higher before and thru that period.

        So for low dose I’m getting 22mg/day (11 from my multi and another 11 from my quercetin-zinc supplement), and then there’s diet (meats are rich, for example).

        For surge, I’ill up it with a half-tab zinc supplement for another 25 mg, total is 47 mg.

        Protocols call for 75-100 mg, so I’m staying shy side regardless. If I feel a cold I’ll make it a full 50 mg zinc tab for total 72 mg, that gets me right up to protocol

        The single quercetin-zinc cap gives me 400mg quercetin, protocol is 250-500, so I’m good there

        Basically, after my brother’s advice I’m going on the shy side on all the supplements, figuring diet will provide some in addition.

        Coronavirus: Putin says vaccine has been approved for use


        “ Russian President Vladimir Putin has said a locally developed vaccine for Covid-19 has been given regulatory approval after less than two months of testing on humans.
        Mr Putin said the vaccine had passed all the required checks, adding that his daughter had already been given it.
        Officials have said they plan to start mass vaccination in October.
        Experts have raised concerns about the speed of Russia’s work, suggesting that researchers might be cutting corners.
        Amid fears that safety could have been compromised, the World Health Organization (WHO) urged Russia last week to follow international guidelines for producing a vaccine against Covid-19.
        On Tuesday, the WHO said it had been in talks with Russian authorities about undertaking a review of the vaccine, which has been named Sputnik-V.
        Currently, the Russian vaccine is not among the WHO’s list of six vaccines that have reached phase three clinical trials, which involve more widespread testing in humans.”

    First Thank you Sundance.

    Greetings Comrades, welcome to East Germany, we are watching you, COVID papers please…

    I’ve been reading the CTH posts since 2017, sort of found my way via other website comments. Lurking mostly. Past three years driving friends and family mad with almost weekly evidence dropping on this whole sordid affair, thanks to this site. Willful blindness from in-laws can also be so infuriating lol.

    Am i the only one reading this stuff at 4am wakeup? I doubt it.

    The realization that we are living under the tyranny of a communist political party in all but name, since FDR, is a bit overwhelming for me. I never wanted to live in the movie 1984 or Brazil. I am a creature of statism, ie someone who grew up as a ward of the state. As such, I would never recommend living under government care for anyone. Not all social workers know best, not all foster homes are well intentioned. I knew kids that died in government care. But like others, I lucked out, joined the military, made something of myself and am a productive member of society. But i also know those who didnt. I know more still the abuses of unchecked government oversight into our lives. I have proven the ability to survive state control, im not sure if others can, and i am sad to know that many wont realize what life is really like under state control until its too late. We are feeling it now with the Covid era.

    I am saddened to think that there is not much bench after Trump. I feel he is just a blip surrounded by greed and aravice. Ive worked in DC (well established lobby firm) and I understand what the bubble looks like. They ever tell you about the DC sex parties the congress critters have at some Virginia camps? Some people have to organize them. And thats what i learned my first week in town.

    i was married inside the bubble, ive lived among and got to understand these people who think they MAKE america. They feel they ARE america and everyone else is just ignorant peasants. And for the most part thier military credentials allow thier bias while enjoying the officers club overlooking Annapolis. Inside DC beltway is a system of patronage and parley that rivals any historical empire in terms of corruption and family network maneuvering. You think they really care that you feel your rights are violated by thier survaillance systems? Or that you are upset about them profiting from such information? They dont.

    Trillions at stake are trillions at stake and not one lobbyist is gonna let another Trump get into office and ruin that gravy train again. At least not willingly. As long as they feel they control the illegal domestic survaillance apparatus to their profitable benefit, DC wont change. I can only say i know the people that we speak of, and nothing will change from thier view. DC wont change. it might have a new name, a new boss, a new party, but corrupt business will always be the same. History proves this about capital cities. We are not unique in that regard. We have about as much chance cleaning up washington dc as getting rid of rats in nyc. We wont stop it but we can at least shine a light on the problem and expose it for what it is.

    And i take heart and solace that i am not alone in this endeavor to seek truth and proclaim it loud lest corrupt goons decieve us further. My conscience is clean in that regard.

    Not my fault i drank the anti-commie 80’s koolaid that reagan was pimping. I dont care what anyone says, the 80s has the best toys in my opinion as a child, cementing my belief in capitalist superiority. I blame the system lol.

    Now the system wants you to believe that statism is good, yet my mind remembers them saying otherwise. Oceania bad, Europa good….

    But the younger generations have no such memories of the Cold War. The vast legions of educated suburbanites do not understand the risk of statism, although i find that people who grew up in poverty such as myself, are usually wary of state control having experienced it first hand. Honestly i think due to all the educational brainwashing

    About brainwashing…

    Supposed a traveller were to visit 1600s Salem, and watched all the educated privilieged elite of Salem wage war against “witchcraft” burning and killing people over what we now know to be absurdly rational lynchings. Would that traveller be out of line to call the educated elite majority of Salem as ignorantly brainwashed and/or willfully blind? I am feeling like that traveller these days. A stranger in a strange land. How is Salem any different than todays america with our privilieged and educated elite hopelessly brainwashed ans/or complicit.

    And yet God compels us to speak, damning our lives to torment by those who wish to destroy us. But so we do, because if we dont, who will? So it remains the good fight.

    Someone above my pay grade said these are the times that try mens souls. This is not disheartening post as much as a reality gutcheck. A future where Trump loses this election is a bleak one for all shades of freedom. Hope waiting for justice wanes as each day passes. But one foot moves ahead of the other one and so we do. Speak up today lest we starve tomorrow.

    A2, i read ur stuff, hong kong has our empathies and support. Sorry if we seem distant at times, just we are also fighting for our freedoms and future out here also. If trump doesnt win, we are ALL fawked. And then we wont be in position to help, at all. Please have patience with the ungainly slow giant waking up from a commie induced stupor. We are doing our best under constrained circumstances ie corrupt govt. Hang in there! It might be a while. Prepare accordingly.

    Lasty thank you Sundance for putting together a Pulitzer prize worthy research and compilation of what is the greatest scandal in the history of our nation. Godspeed!

    P.s. Sorry about my spelling, i plead ignorance and mojitos. PLUR

      I think that much of US strategy under President Trump’s administration is to cement in his policy on the PRC, no matter who is elected and that means for years to come.

      Of course a Biden presidency will try the same old failed Obama policy, ignore the threat. But if he wins ( not likely) he will still be constrained on many levels of government legislation passed by both houses of Congress. His donors will be pissed, but the worm has turned. And the apologists for the PRC actions in the US will risibly go back to ‘failed engagement’ against a CCP who doesn’t care.

      As Hong Kong people have presciently said, we are all Hong Kongers.

      The CCP and Xi’s cohort will not stop. unless they are stopped. My opinion but borne out of 4 decades in situ.

    FLASHBACK: Kamala Harris Descends From Slave Owner Who Said Slaves Were ‘Comfortable’, According To Her Father
    August 11, 2020

    But Harris might have to come to terms with claims from her father that her ancestors were slave owners.

    According to Harris’ father Donald Harris, a retired Stanford University economics professor, the Harris family descends from a 19th-century slave owner, Hamilton Brown.

    Brown owned multiple plantations throughout the 19th-century, even going so far as to say slaves were “comfortable” in Jamaica, according to a pamphlet from 1832 entitled “Three months in Jamaica” that documented life on sugar plantations. Brown also advocated against the abolition of slavery, per Snopes.
