        Yes, it was an ambush.

        President Trump ambushed George Stephanopoulos.

        Expected no less from Georgie Porgie, but PDHT stood his ground against a highly-biased series of questions (and interruptions by the “moderator” — ha!) to make his points about the last four years. I don’t care who those folks voted for in 2016, the queries and statements were D.E.S.I.G.N.E.D. except for the immigrant who recently lost her mother.

        That’s when Georgie lost control of the ABC message as our president handled the situation with the grace and respect we know to be his essence. Those few minutes said more about him and his leadership than all the monkey business (apologies to the monkeys) that the network constructed to diminish him and all the work he has accomplished to overcome the progressive totalitarians trying to overrun our U.S> Constitution and its Declaration of Independence.

        Good show, Mr. President. The PTB got their taste of the debates to come.

      Sleepy Joe can’t even handle a single question from a friendly reporter without using a teleprompter. Does anyone really think he could handle a town hall meeting at this point. I’m beginning to believe there will be no debates between President Trump and Hidin Biden! The Democrats can’t take the chance of having a mentally deteriorating Biden get chewed up big time by the president. There is no way Biden can stand at a podium for ninety minutes and debate a master debater in President Trump. I can’t wait to hear the excuses the Biden campaign and the media will make when the presidential debates are called off

      This is a set-up. Georgie is debating President Trump for Dumb Biden.

      Georgie is absolutely despicable and cuts President Trump off.

      Georgie lied. These questions were from ABC and some of the people reading them looks like they’re members of Antifa/BLM. You can see the hate in their eyes and body language shows it, too..

        At one point, George interrupted and mentioned Mattis, Kelly, and Bolton and said one or other other of them called President Trump dangerous and unfit to be President. President Trump handled it masterfully, perhaps the best of the evening, but it really showed George’s “gotcha” mentality, going at the President full throttle..

        yes the questioners were hand picked …were not the most intelligent but people most likely with grievances …like the Black man who questioned whether Black people even knew an America,that was even great. I could pick that a part till the cows come home but President Trump missed an opportunity to ask him why they didn’t vote in Republicans instead of Dems for local govt.

      Good! More documented evidence for future generations to watch, and learn a true patriotic President fighting to win an election. Its been bad, what they’ve done to him, but its all documented. This is how President Trump secures the future. Americas enemies have outed themselves from the shadows. Infiltration has been laid bare for all to see, which will be studied and taught to future generation’s. This could well be the end for Americas domestic enemies.

      A routine day for President Trump. Two Abraham Peace Accord deals, FEMA briefings, 2 Town Halls, bilateral meetings with heads of state and so on.

      POTUS was great in both Town Halls but I wondered why he held back mentioning many of his successes. Perhaps he didn’t feel it was necessary. I missed a few minutes at the beginning but he never mentioned the opportunity zones, the Black college funding, the 1st Step Act etc in response to the head nodding, skeptical black chap that claimed nothing has changed for blacks since he was elected etc.

      His 401k answer to Stephanopoulos’s comment, about Stock Market gains only helping the rich, was convincing but he didn’t mention all the stock invested private pension plans that many millions of retirees and hopeful retirees rely on for a comfortable retirement from the market gains and so on. If there ever is a genuine debate, I’m sure he won’t leave any arrows in his quiver.

    ***Today’s Fisher Industries / Border Wall posts***
    — Fisher’s Federal and private projects, their methods of construction, and overall wall progress in general… including border wall content from other wall contractors.
    — (Previous posts:

    [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 – 9/14/20 – (See link above.)

    — Chief Rodney Scott tweet w/ Border Wall System update: 321 miles completed.
    — USBP Chief Roy D. Villareal tweet about wall progress in Tuscon Sector.

    — 2 border wall photo

    – – – – –
    Tuesday night update – 9/15/20

    — Tweets w/ 2 videos showing border wall progress.
    — 3 photos from above videos.
    — 1 photo of border wall 5 miles east of Douglas, Arizona.

    – – – – –

    ✅ (9/7/20)… Border Wall System Update: 321 miles completed.
    (Update tends to lag by a few days.)
    ✅ (8/18/20)… General Semonite reported that contractors are currently building over 2 miles of wall per day and that they are currently funded for 733 miles of wall.

    This years goal: 450 miles.
    Total goal for full operational control of southern border: ~1,100 miles… some of which will be secondary barrier.

    – – – – –
    ✅ 🧱 (Project 1: May/June 2019)… 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)
    ✅ 👍 (11/20/19)… DHS Secretary Chad Wolf & CBP Chief gave a huge endorsement to the Fisher industries wall 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.

    ✅ 🧱 (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.

    ✅ 🔍 (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.

    ✅ 🧱 (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.

    ✅ 🧱 (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)

    ✅ (7/6/20)… Fisher has partnered with Holcombe Mixers “to fast-track border wall construction.”

    ✅ 🧱 (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.
    ✅ … With the above contract, Fisher probably has at least 112 miles of border wall contract(s), 90 miles of which have been reported on.

    🙏 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 contracts, and any other projects they may be working on; that Fisher would be able to continue uninterrupted until completion.
    — for the safety of other wall contractors and those involved in building the wall.

    — 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 be able to build 1+(to 2?) miles of wall per day.
    (Tommy Fisher has previously stated that, given a large enough project(s), they would be able to build 1 mile of wall per day within 3 months. As early photos taken on March 24 reveal, this process has been going on for at least 5 months. My guess is that Fisher has already scaled up to 1 mile per day, assuming they had enough projects to justify the increase in equipment/manpower required for that output. I’m still waiting to for news to confirm this though.)

    — 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)
    ✅ (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.

    — for 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.
    (September 10)… Hearing summary…
    At the request of both sides, the lawsuit could go to trial September 2021.
    “Judge Crane said he would hold one final status conference on the case prior to Christmas to determine whether the case will be scheduled for trial.”

    — 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.
    — 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 foundation, toward the river.

    — that Fisher would be able to come up with affordable, scalable, innovative solutions to greatly shorten the landscape establishment period, provide some initial protection against erosion during the establishment period, and strengthen the long-term stability(resistance to erosion) for all types of riverbank soil & grades/slopes which may be encountered so that the landscape can handle the stronger hurricanes/floods which may arrive in the future

    — 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.

    — 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 Fisher Industries’ private or federal projects (& other wall contractors)

    — 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 Fisher Industries/USA’s benefit

    🌟 “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 🌟

    My Apologies, Mr. President

    A suburban mom reflects on her 2016 vote and vows to do better in 2020

    President Trump has made me very aware of my inner wuss—the coward made strong by her own judgments of moral superiority.

    My apologies, Mr. President. I misjudged you and grossly underestimated you. It is my judgy mouth that needs to be corrected this time—for criticisms I have made superficially and at no personal cost to me, from the comfy spectator chair on the sidelines of the war raging on this great American battlefield.

    According to the Canadian Fire Service there are a total of five uncontrolled fires in Canada at present of which two are in British Columbia. The fires are described as follows:

    Priority fires:
    British Columbia: 2020-N21257 currently listed as out of control at an estimated 7,937 hectares. Approximately 25 kilometres southwest of canal flats

    2020-N51250 currently listed as out of control at an estimated 539 hectares. Approximately 3.5 km northwest of Hwy 6 and about 30 km north of Castlegar.

    So, the entire Western United States is on fire but the fires virtually stop at the 49th Parallel. Why? Does climate change have a problem with Canadian Customs?

    i don’t typically but this makes me want a public execution —

    September 14th 2020

    Tulsa Police held a news conference on Monday to release information about the video showing the shootings of two Tulsa Police officers from a few months ago.

    …highlighted key points of interest including the moment the weapon appears to have been produced.

    The chairman of the Fraternal Order of Police said I have to watch a lot of body camera footage as part of my job. I can only think of two times in my life – upon the death of family members – when I wept like I did watching the conclusion of this video. It is terrible.

    News report – also further down the page is a 24 minute presser with Chief Franklin. You can see his heart is heavy. Sad.

    Officers asked the killer to step out of vehicle 40 times!

      The guy was a criminal. He was a felon in possession of a gun. He was driving totally illegally. He resisted arrest. I make no excuses for that guy. But those cops behaved in a manner I find quite unprofessional. I can’t believe they never unholstered their guns There was no violence in the situation until they started using their stuff on him. Screaming doesn’t work with everybody. Some guys are going to fight. I know a lot of cops. I’m going to send this one out to a few of them and see what they think. I can’t believe this was the best way to handle that situation. I’m reading here and there that the cops knew this guy, and knew he was violent. Were they afraid of drawing their weapons or put him in a headlock? Tough job.

    The Maldives and U.S. Sign Defense Agreement

    Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for South and Southeast Asia Reed Werner and Maldivian Minister of Defense Mariya Didi signed the “Framework for U.S. Department of Defense-Maldives Ministry of Defence Defense and Security Relationship” in Philadelphia on September 10.

    The Framework sets forth both countries’ intent to deepen engagement and cooperation in support of maintaining peace and security in the Indian Ocean, and marks an important step forward in the defense partnership.

    DASD Werner and Minister Didi also discussed U.S. support for the Maldives’ response to COVID-19 and areas for future cooperation, and agreed to work toward scheduling the first Defense and Security Dialogue. Both sides reiterated their commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific that promotes the security and prosperity of all nations in the region.

    The PRC was pouring money and making promises to the Maldives government for over at least over a year.

      Perot Conservative says: Hope porn?

      That’s my take on it.

      Several pundits (including Housley), have been ladling on the hope porn and tick-tocks thick and heavy last week and this this week (and you’ve been posting a fair-share of it from them 🙂 ).

      Looks a whole lot like “been there done that” (the tick-tocking), but they’re pouring it on so thickly of late, pounding the message so hard, that it’s like a tsunami suffocating my senses and makes it feel like a “how dare you” to state, “looks like hope porn” – like we should all just forget we’ve seen similar hope porn tick-tocks so many times that we’ve lost count. But yet – that’s what it looks like again.

      Housley “stands by” his reporting on this topic.

      I stand by my own take, posted a few days ago, here:

      (Summary – expect to be underwhelmed when the tick-tockers may be technically correct but the promised big news will be a let-down – just like the FISA “reforms”).

      Of course, time will tell.. Which is, of course, par for the course with hope porn tick-tocks.

      Housley’s recent predictions went from 1. August to 2. early September to 3. before the election to 4. “it’s a slow roll out and I don’t think they care about the election.”

    The Biden campaign has brought in an army of lawyers, including former President Barack Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder, in anticipation of a brawl in the courts with the Trump campaign over the “unique challenges” that voting in 2020 entails.

    The New York Times reported on Monday that “hundreds of lawyers”—including Holder, two U.S. solicitors general from the Clinton and Obama presidencies, the former general counsel for Obama’s campaigns and the DNC law firm Perkins Coie that has been on the front lines of various voting-related cases—have joined Joe Biden’s so-called “special litigation” unit.

    Lyrics for Despacito:
    I want to breathe your neck slowly
    Let me tell you things in your ears
    So that you remember when you’re not with me
    I want to undress you with kisses slowly
    Sign the walls of your labrynth
    And make your whole body a manuscript
    Turn it up turn it up….. turn it up, turn it up

      This dirty old man should have been locked up and shamed publicly a long time ago. Disgusting and unbelievable that anyone would vote for him while aware of his history. Those that do vote for this insane creature are more than likely filled with self-hate.
