First Look: Prototypes of Trump’s Wall are Under Construction

If you’re a native born American and you don’t like Trump’s wall there’s something wrong with you.

Even as mere symbolism, the wall makes an impressive statement. In the end, the wall should be more than symbolism though. It will keep at least some invaders out of the country.

Now, if only Congress will cooperate so the wall can be built. It’s not clear that Congress will fund it or legislate in such a way that Mexicans pay for it. But there’s no doom and gloom here. The wall looks impressive, so let’s do it.

Excerpt from AZ Central

SAN DIEGO — Workers toiled in intense 95-degree heat here Tuesday, putting final touches on eight possible versions of President Donald Trump’s long-promised border wall.

As an Oct. 26 deadline to finish the prototype border-wall designs drew near, The Arizona Republic toured the construction site a few dozen yards from the border that divides this city from neighboring Tijuana, Mexico.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection awarded eight contracts to six companies, including two from Arizona, to build the prototypes. Four are made of reinforced concrete, and another four incorporate additional construction materials. Construction began on Sept. 26, giving companies 30 days to finish.

By Tuesday afternoon, when CBP allowed The Republic access to the site, five of the wall designs had already been completed and were fenced off with caution tape.

But crews were still at work on others, installing vertical concrete panels on one design, using cranes and bulldozers to place them upright. Another two prototypes were in various stages of construction.

The construction site is about 2 miles east of San Diego’s Otay Mesa border crossing, in the foothills of the Otay Mountains.

At 30 feet, the designs dwarf the primary fence that currently marks the international boundary — it’s made of rusted Vietnam War-era landing mats. They are nearly twice the height of the secondary metal-mesh fence, which ends near where the prototypes are being built.

Their height, officials said, is intended to make a statement to criminals and would-be unauthorized crossers: Stay away.

“The 30 feet is very impressive,” said Mario Villareal, the division chief for the San Diego Sector Border Patrol. “What we’re trying to accomplish is by putting tactical infrastructure on the border, by having all-weather roads, by putting Border Patrol agents on the immediate border is the deterrence.”

Whether the border-wall prototypes keep people away, will be closely scrutinized in the coming weeks. After they are done, CBP will move to the “test and evaluation” of each of the eight structures.

Bombshell FBI Report: Crooked Hillary’s Uranium Deal with Russia Netted Clintons Millions

Lock her up.

The mainstream media pulled out all stops on Tuesday to make this story go away.

New York Post

It turns out the Obama administration knew the Russians were engaged in bribery, kickbacks and extortion in order to gain control of US atomic resources — yet still OK’d that 2010 deal to give Moscow control of one-fifth of America’s uranium. This reeks.

Peter Schweizer got onto part of the scandal in his 2015 book, “Clinton Cash”: the gifts of $145 million to the Clinton Foundation, and the $500,000 fee to Bill for a single speech, by individuals involved in a deal that required Hillary Clinton’s approval.

The New York Times confirmed and followed up on Schweizer’s reporting — all of it denounced by Hillary as a partisan hit job.

But now The Hill reports that the FBI in 2009 had collected substantial evidence — eyewitnesses backed by documents — of money-laundering, blackmail and bribery by Russian nuclear officials, all aimed at growing “Vladimir Putin’s atomic-energy business inside the United States” in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.

The bureau even flagged the routing of millions from Russian nuclear officials to cutouts and on to Clinton, Inc.

Hillary Clinton, again, sat on a key government body that had to approve the deal — though she now claims she had no role in a deal with profound national-security implications, and during the campaign called the payments a coincidence.

The Obama administration — anxious to “reset” US-Russian relations — kept it all under wraps, refusing to tell even top congressional intelligence figures.

And when the Obamaites in 2014 filed low-level criminal charges against a single individual over what the FBI found, they did so with little public fanfare.

“The Russians were compromising American contractors in the nuclear industry with kickbacks and extortion threats, all of which raised legitimate national-security concerns,” one veteran of the case told The Hill.

Yet the administration let Moscow move ahead — publicly insisting that there were no national-security worries — and no evidence of Russian interference, despite many lawmakers’ concern at the time.

There’s more: Until September 2013, the FBI director was Robert Mueller — who’s now the special counsel probing Russian meddling in the 2016 election. It’s hard to see how he can be trusted in that job unless he explains what he knew about this Obama-era coverup.

The Hill offers the full, detailed story, explaining why Hillary reeks of corruption.

One more thing. You might have seen the news that Hillary Clinton broke her toe and cancelled her interviews.

Did she really?

There were hints that something big was breaking on Tuesday. Could she be faking a broken toe in order to give herself an excuse for hiding out from the questions that would be forthcoming about her collusion with the (((Russian mafia?)))

Sean Hannity made this story his lead Tuesday night:

“Uranium One will be one of the biggest scandals this country has ever seen,” he said.

“Hillary Clinton and her husband sold out America to the Russians as [money] flowed to the Clinton Foundation,” he added.

He said that, for the “liberal ideologues” who are “screaming Russia” and looking for collusion, “we’ve got it for them.”

Hannity said Congress and special counsel Robert Mueller should “stop wasting time” with Trump and turn their attention to the Uranium One deal.

Illegal Aliens Escalate Demands

Claims that illegals are “living in the shadows are laughable to begin with, but when they come out to hold a press conference demanding this, that, and the next thing, it’s even more laughable.

The evil hand of Mark Zuckerberg is present in this, as noted in the story.

Excerpt from Breitbart

Top Democrats and business allies invited reporters to a Capitol Hill event to watch illegal immigrants demand amnesty and smear Republicans as racist, in Spanish and broken English.

“I’m here representing all the immigrant mothers like myself, will not allow the government to tear down our sons’ and daughters’ dreams while they try to separate our families,” said Lenka Mendoza, an unskilled illegal alien who has been living in the United States for 17 years since the year President Geoge W. Bush was elected. She continued, using a translator, saying:

The president does not care about our children and our families. Trump and his government supposed priorities are nothing else but an anti-immigrant and white-supremacist agenda that don’t solve anything … need clean act now.”

Mendoza was welcomed to the podium by Todd Schulte, a Democratic political activist who is president of FWD.us, a lobbying group formed by Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, Venture Capitalists and software CEOs. Nine of the group’s 15 founders are investors who would gain from cheaper white-collar labor and a larger population of customers in the United States.

Schulte hosted the event to showcase Democrats’ opposition to President Trump’s new immigration principles, which balance business’ demands for more workers and customers against Americans’ worries that they and their children will be unfairly outsourced, sidelined and ignored amid mass immigration.

In his October 8 letter to Congress, Trump said:

These findings outline reforms that must be included as part of any legislation addressing the status of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients. Without these reforms, illegal immigration and chain migration, which severely and unfairly burden American workers and taxpayers, will continue without end.

Immigration reform must create more jobs, higher wages, and greater security for Americans — now and for future generations. The reforms outlined in the enclosure are necessary to ensure prosperity, opportunity, and safety for every member of our national family.

Instead of urging compromise, Schulte’s speakers upped their demands, saying they want an amnesty for young ‘dreamer’ illegals plus an amnesty for their parents, to be delivered immediately and without any compromises, such as the improved border defenses sought by a supermajority of Americans.

Haha. Every illegal baby factory has picked up on that phrase “strong woman.” Are there no normal women out there anymore? How about weak women?

“I am a weak woman who must be supported by the taxpayers so that I can stay pregnant all the time.”

That Washington-imposed economic policy of mass-immigration floods the market with foreign labor, spikes profits and Wall Street values by cutting salaries for manual and skilled labor offered by blue-collar and white-collar employees. It also drives up real estate prices, widens wealth-gaps, reduces high-tech investment, increases state and local tax burdens, hurts kids’ schools and college education, pushes Americans away from high-tech careers, and sidelines at least 5 million marginalized Americans and their families, including many who are now struggling with opioid addictions.

Americans tell pollsters that they strongly oppose amnesties and cheap-labor immigration, even as most Americans also want to favor legal immigrants, and many sympathize with illegals.

Because of the successful cheap-labor strategy, wages for men have remained flat since 1973, and a growing percentage of the nation’s annual income is shifting to investors and away from employees.

A sane country would have raided this press conference, rounded up the illegals, and arrested the citizens who organized it.

Maybe one day we’ll be at that point, but not yet.

Trump Pulls Out of UNESCO in Support of Israel

Candidate Donald Trump ran a campaign that was partly about getting tough with the United Nations.

In a Thursday morning surprise, he announced the U.S. would withdraw from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

Conservatives, nationalists, and populists should be happy to see the UN weakened by this move. Soon after, Israel also withdrew from UNESCO.

This excerpt explains the background to Trump’s move. The part that everyone should be concerned about is that he did it for Israel.

Excerpt from Vox

Thursday morning, Americans woke up to some news that felt like it was out of left field: The Trump administration was withdrawing the United States from membership in the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

This seemed strange because UNESCO is such an inoffensive-seeming organization: Its most prominent function is designating and protecting official international landmarks, called World Heritage Sites — places like The Alamo and the Great Barrier Reef. What possible reason could the US have for quitting an organization devoted to culture and science?

The reality, though, is bit a more complex, as the US and UNESCO have actually been at loggerheads since 2011.

The key issue, as with many US-UN disputes, is the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In October 2011, UNESCO admitted the Palestinian territories to the organization as an independent member-state called Palestine. This triggered a US law which cut off American funding for any organization that recognized an independent Palestine. The US had previously paid for 22 percent ($80 million) of UNESCO’s annual budget.

Finally, in 2013, after the US missed several rounds of payments to UNESCO, the organization suspended US voting rights in its core decision-making bodies. So the US hasn’t been a real UNESCO member for a while. Trump is just making that status official — and scoring a domestic public relations coup with pro-Israel, anti-UN conservatives in the process.

“A lot of UNESCO’s work is quite pointless,” Gowan tells me. “But it also runs an odd array of worthwhile programs on issues ranging from education to tsunami warning.”

Some of these things, like supporting international Holocaust education, are really important. But the organization isn’t nearly as prominent or geopolitically significant as the UN Security Council, which sets binding international law, or UN Peacekeeping, a body literally tasked with helping war-torn countries transition to peace. That makes UNESCO a natural venue for countries that want to engage in ideological grandstanding and symbolic protest votes without actually causing too much chaos in the international system.

Earlier this year, UNESCO designated the core area of the West Bank city of Hebron — home to the Cave of the Patriarchs, an important religious site for Jews and Muslims — as a Palestinian World Heritage Site, a symbolic slight of both the US and Israel. It’s easy to imagine UNESCO voting to take more actions like this in the future.

“Non-Western countries are already a powerful bloc in UNESCO, and their influence will increase further [after US withdrawal],” says Gowan. “Expect lots and lots more UNESCO resolutions bashing Israel, for a start.”

Vox’s use of the word “bashing” tells you their politics. Israel can’t be criticized without somebody paying a price. Fair criticism and bashing are two different things. How far will Trump go to please the Israeli lobby?

Loyal Family Dogs Help Police Find Missing Toddler

WHAT THE HELICOPTER PILOT SAW.

Here’s a story with a happy ending. This is one of two stories from Tuesday featuring lost toddlers saved by dogs. I’ll post the other story later this week.

There’s no photos of the hero canines available, but if some surface I’ll update this post.

Star Tribune

An “adventurous” 2-year-old wandered from his central Minnesota home and was rescued well after dark thanks to a State Patrol aircraft’s heat-seeking device detecting one of two family dogs that loyally tagged along and remained with the toddler in the dark, autumn chill.

The boy’s few hours on his own with Bella Grace, an English Springer Spaniel, and her 12-week-old pup, Madeline, came to a tail-wagging happy ending about 9:20 p.m. Thursday in a neighbor’s cornfield roughly a quarter-mile away, the boy’s grandfather said Tuesday.

The toddler “goes with me in the tractor and goes with me to check the corn,” said Rick Gertken. “He’s adventurous. He’s Grandpa’s boy.”

The son of Kaitlyn Bottem was outside the family’s home northwest of Richmond playing with three cousins ages 7, 11 and 12, when he strayed about 6:15 p.m., Gertken said.

Grandma, who was watching the kids, couldn’t locate the boy or the dogs, Gertken continued. Authorities were notified after the family’s 30-minute search failed to find him and full darkness drew near.

Sheriff’s deputies were joined in the search by various fire and rescue department personnel, two law enforcement bloodhounds, roughly 200 volunteers and the patrol helicopter, the grandfather continued.

Searchers “heard the dog barking at one point [before the boy was located], then it stopped barking,” said Stearns County Sheriff’s Lt. Vic Weiss.

The helicopter picked up “a heat signature” below in a cornfield nearby, which turned out to not only reveal the boy but the family’s dog as well, Weiss added.

The blurry gray and black imagery from the heat-seeking video shows the older dog walking near the boy and at times sitting down before a sheriff’s deputy and a state trooper arrived at the child’s side about 9:20 p.m.

What the imagery had more difficulty discerning was puppy Madeline by the boy’s side.

“The puppy stayed next to the boy the whole time,” Gertken said. “The pup’s mom backed off.”

The lieutenant said the Bella Grace’s movements near the boy “absolutely, for sure” played a major role in leading searchers to the boy so quickly on an increasingly chilly night.

“The [older] dog was in preservation and protection mode,” Weiss said.

Law enforcement brought “the boy back to his house, where he was reunited with his mother and was evaluated by the ambulance,” a Sheriff’s Office synopsis read.

The child was “in good condition, although a bit cold and hungry,” the Sheriff’s Office continued.

Gertken said the little guy “didn’t cry once. He wasn’t scared, and that’s after being in the dark for three hours.”

Terrifying! Tornado Appears Out of Nowhere and … (Video)

This is what it’s like to go through a small tornado. Count me out.

From youtube:

She sits through a tornado – literally! (Typhoon Soudelor in Taiwan)

August 9, 2015 – Tainan City, Taiwan (Yong Cheng Road)

Terrifying dashcam footage captures the moment that several pedestrians and vehicles are swept into a powerful tornado. These tornadoes were a part of Typhoon Soudelor. The woman left sitting on the road was seriously injured by the tornado while the others involved suffered only minor injuries. Dashcam was not configured properly, hence the incorrect display date.

Watch the entire incident on youtube. One minute.

Advocate of African Adoptions, Radio Host Delilah’s White Teen Son Commits Suicide

DELILAH. MOTHER OF 13, 10 ADOPTED. ON HUSBAND #4 TOO.

If you’re male, you probably don’t know who Delilah is, but millions of white women could explain her appeal to you.

Women call into her show, tell their sob stories, then Delilah offers words of encouragement and plays a special song she’s picked out just for them.

She’s a strong influence on her vast female audience.

Which is not good when she’s big on adopting Africans and bringing them to the States.

Here’s Delilah holding a niglet, a familiar site to her legion of followers:

Here she is on Instagram with her youngest “daughter:”

My youngest daughter and I made May Day baskets to fill with flowers from my beautiful spring gardens.

A post shared by Official Delilah (@radiodelilah) on

What’s particularly off putting about her favoritism toward the dark race is that she couches her message in terms of her so-called Christian belief system. She sometimes offers a prayer for a caller. Her favorite Bible verse is 1 Corinthians 13:13: “There are three things that last forever: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.”

Delilah should know that there are white children who need love more than the Africans she prefers. They are more likely to appreciate love, too.

Delilah will be missing from the airwaves for a while because her white teen son (natural or adopted?) killed himself last Tuesday.

MSN

On Saturday afternoon, syndicated romance radio host Delilah announced on Facebook that her son Zachariah had taken his life.

“My dear friends, I need to share some devastating news with you. In the early morning hours, Tuesday, October 3, my son Zachariah, took his life,” she wrote to her 1.4 million fans.

“He was being treated, counseled, and embraced fiercely by family and friends while battling depression for some time now. My heart is broken beyond repair and I can not fathom how to go on…but I have to believe he is at peace with the Lord and that God will get us through,” she continued.

“I will be absent from the radio and on social media for a time as I grieve and try to process this loss with my family. In the meantime we’ll be playing some of my favorite shows from the recent past. I’ll look forward to my return, as you all lift me up so very much,” she added. “Please pray for my beloved Zacky, and I will pray for all suffering from this debilitating disease called depression.”

Unfortunately, this is not the first child Delilah has lost. The mother of 13 previously lost her son Sammy, who died in 2012 from complications of sickle-cell anemia.

“My son Sammy passed from this world today into heaven, but he left behind a piece of his amazing soul in all that met him. As painful as this moment is, I am so so so so so thankful that God allowed me, my family and friends to experience the essence of his soul for the past two years,” she wrote in her announcement of her son’s death. “Everyone who met him was blessed by his big heart, his silly character voices, his wonderful sense of humor and his kindness towards all. He was a precious, precious young man and I praise the Lord that I was allowed to be bathed in Sammy’s love as his “MommaBear”…we have been forever changed by having him in our lives.”

To be honest, I enjoyed listening to her show once in a while before the local station dropped it. That was before I discovered her quirky desire to save Africans, a kink that has made America worse off.

Why her son killed himself remains a mystery to the public, but it wouldn’t be surprising if being raised in a multi-racial household drove him over the edge. Being a white teen in a houseful of blacks sounds like torture to me.
