The Trump wall. A new web site following the construction says there are 89 miles of bollard-type steel wall completed, with 226 plus miles to go. I guess the rest of the two plus thousand miles are in inaccessible terrain. Soon we won’t have to guess. We’ll know.
No thanks to the fake news media, i.e. the Mediacrats, who won’t cover it. They’d have us think it isn’t being built. Now we’ll see it anyway.
To these fine people, for full asking price. Now to await the inspection and other rigmarole before possible closing on Sept 27. Yay! Then we can give our full attention to the mini-rancho and its remodeling.
It’s Mexifornia, of course. Where historian Victor Davis Hanson sees:
“We have the highest income tax rates,” said Hanson of California. “We have the highest gas tax rates. We have among the highest sales tax. Our schools [and] our infrastructure is in the bottom ten percent. I don’t remember one out of every three people being admitted to a hospital suffering from diabetes in California. When I was growing up we didn’t have two or three dialysis clinics in every single little town. We have an epidemic of health problems and yet the money to address that is such that we can’t spend it on infrastructure.”
What happens in California stays in California. Let’s hope.
If Trump declares one to get the Southern border wall built, it will be the 59th declared since Congress passed the National Emergencies Act in 1978. Thirty one are still in force.
Of course the Dims would go to the courts to fight Trump and try to legislate their way out of it. Remains to be seen.

“This is a crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul,” Trump said. “Women and children are the biggest victims by far of our broken system … this is the tragic reality of uncontrolled migration on our southern border.”
An example, apparently, of what the Dims (Pelosi) called his malice and CNN (multiple personalities) called his lies.
“Trump said his proposal to Congress has both medical and other resources to deal with the flow of migrants, as well as law enforcement, and a $5.7 billion ‘steel barrier,’ which he said was a concession to Democrats, rather than a concrete wall.”
