    ***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 CBP and other wall contractors.
    — (Previous posts: https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/10/22/october-22nd-2020-presidential-politics-trump-administration-day-1372/comment-page-1/#comment-8964270)

    [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.]

    ***Praises***

    ✅ (10/19/20)… Border Wall System Update: 371 miles completed.
    (Update tends to lag by a few days.)
    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.
    ✅ 🧱 (9/30/20)… Fisher Industries was awarded a $283 million contract to build 27 miles of new border wall with accompanying infrastructure system in Laredo Sector located in Webb County, Texas.

    ✅ … With the above contracts, Fisher probably has at least 139 miles of border wall contract(s), 117 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 Fisher’s 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+ miles of wall per day, assuming they have enough work to justify the increase in capacity.

    — 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)
    ✅ (4/15/20)… 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 working at the private border wall along the Rio Grande as they continue to fill/fix any issues related to erosion, reseeding of grass, and applying various erosion control solutions on the site.

    — 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 Fisher’s 3.5 mile project along the Rio Grande 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 🌟

      The Jaw-Dropping Difference Between the Old ‘Wall’ and the New Wall the Trump Admin Is Building
      https://townhall.com/tipsheet/juliorosas/2020/10/21/the-difference-between-the-old-wall-and-the-new-wall-trump-admin-has-built-n2578540

      Excerpts:
      — “Wow” was all I was able to say as the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Blackhawk flew alongside the U.S.-Mexico border and the difference between the old “wall” system and the new wall system under construction came into view.

      — The Blackhawk landed in New Mexico and we got out to see the difference up close. The old “wall” that covers large lengths of the border is laughably easy to get over. It consists of barbed wire fencing, held together by fragile-looking wooden posts and Normandy barriers intended to stop illegal vehicle crossings.

      — “This is what we had for a very long time, right? Wood and barbed wire. That is what we had to stop people. And then we upgraded to [the Normandy barriers] and this is a joke,” Morgan said, as he explained how smugglers developed techniques to cut through the Normandy barriers so they could move them aside to let vehicles through and then move them back into place.

      — “So when you see this 30-foot high wall, concrete and steel into the ground, yeah, it’s brand new,” Morgan said, adding the wall is part of a system, complete with roads, lighting, and surveillance that helps deter illegal crossings or slow down illegal crossers so border patrol agents have time to respond.

      — With more wall systems being put into place, Chavez says they are able to redirect manpower. An area previously requiring six to ten border patrol agents can now be monitored by two. Resources are able to be redirected so they can address other incursions such as tunnels and drones.

      — The new wall system is not the only noticeable difference between President Barack Obama’s and Trump’s administration, said Morgan and Chavez. They pointed to the much better relations they have with their Mexican counterparts and how motivated they are in stopping people before they get a chance to illegally cross into the United States.

      — As of Wednesday, CBP says 109 miles of the new border wall system has been built in the El Paso Sector, with 36 miles currently under construction.

          Good video. Mark is certainly well chosen and I’m glad P Trump brought him back. I hate to think what would happen with the southern border if Biden was elected. That’s reason enough not to vote for him.

          Here’s a video made by the lefty CBC that tried and failed to create a northern border controversy between B.C. Canada and Washington state because of a wire cable fence intended to prevent vehicles from crossing. Compared to the problems in the south this is laughable–for now.

      FreeRepublic (BeauBo) commentary on above article.
      http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3896776/posts?page=1

      Comments:
      — “371 miles now.”
      — Plus a flood of technology, and a tectonic shift in our policies, as well as the internal enforcement of the next two countries South of the border – Mexico and Guatemala.
      — Instead of actively assisting “migrants” toward our border, they now vigorously impede them.

      — The US/Canadian border is twice as long as our border with Mexico – not even counting the roughly 1,500 mile border with Alaska.
      — Although a continuous barrier is cost prohibitive, a lot of the technology (surveillance, detection, tracking) developed to address the flood on the Southern Border, is deploying to the Northern Border as well.

      — I have not seen any tank traps (ditch/berm vehicle barriers) being built either, as part of the Trump Program.
      — The bollards themselves are an extremely powerful vehicle barrier – ram-proof, even by large vehicles with suicide drivers.
      — A lot of earth is being moved to develop good access roads, clear observation areas (150 feet South of single barrier, and/or in between double barriers) and to manage floods/drainage where needed.
      — Now they are even leveling new basing areas on some commanding high terrain (in Arizona), which will help Border Patrol dominate those local areas for a long time to come, with direct observation and rapid response.

      — 221 miles of the barrier built under the Bush Program (Secure Fence Act) has been assessed as operationally effective, and does not need to be replaced (a good start). It was a very significant effort, with a lot of valuable lessons learned, and some solid infrastructure built – but it fell short of the task.
      — President Trump however, took a comprehensive approach to the problem. His Administration has planned, structured and funded toward a comprehensive solution – complete operational control of the Southern Border – not just marginal improvements within an arbitrary budget.
      — The real magnitude of the operational impact will likely not be recognized widely until sometime next year, but we are now undergoing an explosive transformation in Border security.

      738 miles of Trump-style Super Wall System have been funded (now half done), and 221 of good pre-existing barrier (959 miles total) gets us into the ball park of what we need to fully control the border (by design). A similarly dramatic (but even faster) technological deployment is also now occurring.
      — In his first term, President Trump baked into the cake all the plans and funding for the whole solution. Full scale deployment really just began this year, but it is now progressing shockingly quickly. It is going to be glorious!

      — “we need… A ready reaction force every 50 miles or so”
      — Something like that seems to be built into the plan, within CBP. Thousands of additional full positions were identified as needed, which will require a few years of increased recruitment and training (which has been underway).
      — The new access roads that accompany the new barrier will allow Border Patrol to quickly occupy the former Construction staging areas as new forward operating bases – some of which are being created with heavy earth moving equipment on the high commanding terrain – with the apparent intent to make them as future forward operating bases for Border Patrol.
      More forward deployment and rapid response capability, is clearly part of the total plan.

    Here you are folks, you asked👇

    1. SUMMARY
    1. Joe Biden’s compromising partnership with the Communist Party of China runs via Yang Jiechi (CPC’s Central Foreign Affairs Commission). YANG met frequently with BIDEN during his tenure at the Chinese embassy in Washington.
    2. Hunter Biden’s 2013 Bohai Harvest Rosemont investment partnership was set-up by Ministry of Foreign Affairs institutions designed to garner influence with foreign leaders during YANG’s tenure as Foreign Minister.
    3. HUNTER has a direct line to the Politburo, according to SOURCE A, a senior finance professional in China.
    4. Michael Lin brokered the BHR partnership and partners with MOFA foreign influence organizations.
    5. LIN is a POI for his work on behalf of China, as confirmed by SOURCE B and SOURCE C (at two separate national intelligence agencies).
    6. BHR is a state managed operation. Leading shareholder in BHR is a Bank of China and BHR’s partners are SOEs that funnel revenue/assets to BHR.
    7. HUNTER continues to hold 10% in BHR. He visited China in 2010 and met with major Chinese government financial companies that would later back BHR.
    8. HUNTER’s BHR stake (purchased for $400,000) is now likely be worth approx. $50 million (fees and capital appreciation based on BHR’s $6.5 billion AUM).
    9. HUNTER also did business with Chinese tycoons linked with the Chinese military and against the interests of US national security.
    10. BIDEN’s foreign policy stance towards China (formerly hawkish), has since turned…..

    Read the entire intelligence report. I have more.

    I posted months ago that Solomon Yue had this report (well before the laptop from hell by NYP).Now it is released into the wild. Taiwan knows, Japan knows, Singapore and Hong Kong know.

    Japan has been putting out very precise reports on the connections of these gangsters to Xi especially the emperor maker the Guangdong Ye Crime family ( you know them as high CCP officials 🤣). Taiwan security services passed this Information on to the US govt of that I am sure. It’s breaking now, IMO because had to wait until the Congress (controlled by the Rats) passed the funding for high tech arms to Taipei. Also the Trump administration is negotiating with Japan for increased military presence and intel sharing. All good.

    Take them all down. Asia wants Xi and his monsters gone.

        Complicated question. They all have their own national interests and play them accordingly.

        Fear is a big motivator and fear that the US and allies may just put them on the back of the stove ( they too read the international wankerati). The Trump administration has raised this as a priority but many folks here who want Esper, Pompeo, Barr, Wray (domestically by indicting spies and international money laundering crooks) and so forth to be tarred and feathered, are working hard to change that. Pompeo and Esper have taken the lead internationally all under the approval of the President. Great team.

        Two maybe three examples of fear, Cambodia is a bribe state, Indonesia is wary don’t want US spy planes based there, the Philippines is trying to play it both ways. Not very successfully.

        However, Vietnam, a nominal communist State hates China. Like all SE Asian nations they are caught in the regional power plays. The PRC is bribing island states all over the Pacific rim that is strategic. The US under Sec Pompeo is meeting them regularly countering CCP influence.

        I think in the President’s second term we will see a sea change in the Indo Pacific. Free and open.

      • China’s cheap labor was the drug of choice for the west.
        As a result China became very rich and owns much of the worlds debt incl. USA
        They fund liberal causes, countries, politicians, Universities.
        I fear they are not done with USA’s pesky tariffs.
        Trump has their number and they don’t like it

          LOL You are either VERY bad at math or a liar. The US with a current national debt estimated at $27T has a PRC holding of an estimated $1.2T and this has been decreasing of late as they counter PDJT’s trade offensive. The LARGEST holder of US debt by FAR is the US public through bonds with an estimate $10T+ in total

      Thank you! Lists like this really help put the process of political corruption into perspective.

      1) Hunter Biden sets up shell companies in China
      2) per laptop, Hunter fishes other Dem politicians as “investors”
      3) China politicians & military steer funds into shell companies for “investment” returns
      4) US politicians legislate to ease business restrictions & sell connections up to VP, at least, to gain favor with DOJ and State Dept in disputes
      5) Hunter kicks back money to Joe Biden

      Next, We have the University angles

      6) Biden funds “investments” in Ivy League colleges like Univ of Penn with foreign $$$
      7) Universities give preferential treatment to foreign Chinese students for knowledge transfer (tech espionage)
      8) US scandal over racial bias, colleges not admitting enough academically excellent American Asians … is it because they reached their “quotas” with Chinese Asians?
      9) US Tech companies use US college student labor as incubators for R&D of latest tech, good material for espionage

      Circling back

      10) US colleges (MIT) and politicians are “dirtied up” with money and sexual blackmail from individuals like Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell. This ensures no one talks.
      11) US federal gov creates money pipelines to colleges, think tanks, and non profits through generous and unauditable grant systems. Think Clinton Health Initiative contracts.
      12) US politicians place children into leadership roles (Board members, honorary degrees) of these groups to enrich themselves.

      We should not pretend that the Biden’s are the only family doing this.

    On November 4th President Trump has to fire at least 100 Cabinet officials starting with FBI Director Wray and working down through the FBI HQ tp every Special Agent in Charge of every FBI Office in the country. Next is DOJ and CIA starting with AG Barr and Gina Haspel. President Trump needs to sent FEAR through the upper ranks of each agency because being nice to them obviously didn’t work. If he doesn’t they will crap all over him again for another four years!

      Based on PDJT’s comments in the Leslie Stahl vs DJT unmoderated debate,…i think the A.G. is toast, and Director Wray has been trying to get fired.
      If Mueller could initiate a policy “7 and out”, PDJT can initiate a different policy, and in “Trump time” clear out the rif-raff.

    Mark Wauck has a blog entry on an executive order President Trump signed recently, relating to the civil service, that has many in the administrative state feeling rather uncomfortable:

    “President Trump on Wednesday signed an executive order creating a new classification of ‘policy-making’ federal employees that could strip swaths of the federal workforce of civil service protections just before the next president is sworn into office.”

      Julie,
      Those prices are ONLY during the “transition period” till 2025, after which you won’t pay ANYTHING for Gasoline or Propane, cause you won’t be able to buy it, at ANY price.

      And, following the individual mandate model, you’ll pay $500/ month to NOT get electricity, at least not when the sun don’t shine, and the wind don’t blow.

      But hey, they will have 50,000 charging stations, to not charge up your vehicle with.

      How is it that food service workers, truck drivers, etc kept working, despite some getting covid, but teachers are allowed to “opt out”, COLLECTIVELY, from taking LESS risk?

      I guess they are affirming they aren’t “essential workers”, is that it?

    Joe Biden promised $100 trillion in new spending tonight and the elimination of the oil, gas and chemical industries worldwide. We will all be enjoying lower medical costs through our new Bidencare insurance programs and racism, drug addition and crime will be a thing of the past. None of us except the rich will be paying a dime more in taxes and millions of us will actually be getting a substantial increase in wages. Climate change will be solved by joining the Paris accord and paying our share of the carbon tax as we implement the AOC green new deal which will create millions of new high paying jobs. Wow. I don’t know what drugs they have been treating him with for his dementia but boy are they some powerful mind altering drugs.
