Can We Build A Wall?


Can we build a wall on our southern border?

• The US-Mexico border is approximately 1,900 miles, or 10,032,000 ft long
• Trump said he would build a wall 30 feet deep (in the ground?), and 30 feet high, and I’ll assume 10 feet thick
• Every 10 foot long section of that wall (assuming solid construction) would require approximately 222.22 cubic yards of concrete
• 1,900 miles of such a wall would require 222,931,104 cubic yards of concrete
• Last time I priced concrete in my local area, it was $110/cubic yard
• At that price it would take $24,522,421,440 (about $24.5 billion) plus labor, etc to build the wall
• In 2010, it was estimated that illegal immigration costs taxpayers $113 billion dollars
• We have several million more illegal aliens now than in 2010, and they are receiving far more in benefits.

So, for LESS THAN HALF OF ONE YEAR’S WORTH of what we are spending on illegal aliens, we could build a heavily fortified wall, and then man it with guards and guns.


John Kerry Signs UN Gun Ban Treaty – US Now One Step Away From Revolution

We are now one step away from a revolution.  The senate needs to understand that if this treaty is ratified, and the government attempts to take our guns, or force us to register them (a prelude to confiscation), the government will have irrevocably crossed a line that we WILL NOT stand by and allow them to cross.

Secretary of State John Kerry Signs United Nations Gun Ban Treaty Against Wishes of U.S. Senate

by Warner Todd Huston | August 26, 2015 4:13 pm

If U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has his way the United Nations will be able to say if Americans are allowed to have their Second Amendment rights. He has just signed an anti-gun treaty with the United Nations that the U.S. Senate has already said it is against.

 

The treaty Kerry signed[1] without authorization from the Senate would create an un-Constitutional registry of all US gun buyers and would lead to the UN controlling American’s gun rights.

Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday signed a controversial U.N. treaty on arms regulation, riling U.S. lawmakers who vow the Senate will not ratify the agreement.

As he signed the document, Kerry called the treaty a “significant step” in addressing illegal gun sales, while claiming it would also protect gun rights.

“This is about keeping weapons out of the hands of terrorists and rogue actors. This is about reducing the risk of international transfers of conventional arms that will be used to carry out the world’s worst crimes. This is about keeping Americans safe and keeping America strong,” he said. “This treaty will not diminish anyone’s freedom. In fact, the treaty recognizes the freedom of both individuals and states to obtain, possess, and use arms for legitimate purposes.”

U.S. lawmakers, though, have long claimed the treaty could lead to new gun control measures. They note the U.S. Senate has final say on whether to approve the agreement.

Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., in a letter to President Obama, urged his administration not to take any action to implement the treaty without the consent of the Senate.

He claimed the treaty raises “fundamental issues” concerning “individual rights protected by the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution.”

The National Rifle Association blasted the plan, claiming it would impose an “invasive registration scheme” by requiring importing countries to give exporting countries information on “end users.”

“The Obama administration is once again demonstrating its contempt for our fundamental, individual Right to Keep and Bear Arms,” Chris Cox, executive director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, said in a statement. “These are blatant attacks on the constitutional rights and liberties of every law-abiding American. The NRA will continue to fight this assault on our fundamental freedom.”

Once again Obama’s regime tries to end the Second Amendment by stealth.

Navajo Nation Goes “Clint Eastwood” on Hanoi John McCain

Navajo Nation to John McCainJohn McCain recently showed up on the Navajo Nation to talk about building a Navajo Code Talkers Museum, but the Navajo Nation President and Vice President quickly turned the discussion to the EPA-caused ecological disaster where over 3 million gallons of toxic sludge was dumped into the Animas River.

“I keep saying when are we going to hear from the White House? Not a word,” Begaye said, according to Native News. “When somebody wins the Super Bowl or an NBA Championship, they get a call, right? And when something like this happens and people are suffering, nothing.”

“This is just one mine out of hundreds and there’s no Superfund designation,” Vice President Nez said. “Right now, we don’t trust the U.S. EPA’s data and their collection.”

John McCain is an integral part of the government that people are increasingly learning not to trust, and the Navajo correctly keyed in on this.

Obama Pledges US Military to Defend Iran Facilities Against Israel

“It was revealed that Obama has pledged the United States military to protect Iranian nuclear facilities against any and all aggressive moves from Israel, and any other nations like Saudi Arabia who oppose the deal.”

One of two words:  MUTINY or COUP.

Barack Obama has been giving aid and arms to our enemies, now he is going use OUR military to PROTECT OUR ENEMIES, and ensure they are not impeded from getting NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

This has gone way beyond “too far.”  It must stop.  NOW.

The United States and other world powers will help to teach Iran how to thwart and detect threats to its nuclear program, according to the parameters of a deal reached Tuesday to rein in Iran’s contested nuclear program.

Under the terms of a deal that provides Iran billions of dollars in sanctions relief, Iran and global powers will cooperate to help teach Iran how to manage its nuclear infrastructure, which will largely remain in tact under the deal. Continue reading

Subsidizing and price fixing us into the poorhouse

This article does a great job explaining how government through its burdensome regulations, tax laws, and cronyism does nothing but create massive market distortions that disrupt and drag down our economy.  The MYTH that the free market has failed is just that.  A MYTH.  We haven’t had a free market in a very long time because it has been pushed off the tracks by progressive Marxist/socialist policies.

This paragraph is a pretty good summary, but you are cheating yourself if you don’t read the whole thing.

Government is theft. It produces nothing and has nothing except that which it takes from the producers. It then turns around and grants what it has taken to favored constituencies in a massive reverse Robin Hood scheme. Subsidies are a subtle form of economic warfare between the haves (crony corporations) and have-nots (the people) and class warfare created between the people who are divided based on their economic status, minority status, etc. Price controls distort natural supply and demand, destroy profit margins, and create shortages. All is a masquerade for the benefit of a wicked political system.

Subsidizing and price fixing us into the poorhouse

corn subsidy concept“The whole of economics can be reduced to a single lesson, and that lesson can be reduced to a single sentence. The art of economics consists in looking not merely at the immediate but the longer effects of any act or policy; it consists in tracing the consequences of that policy not merely for one group but for all groups.” — Henry Hazlitt, “Economics in One Lesson”

One of the greatest fallacies of recent generations is the argument that free market capitalism has failed and that said failure is responsible for America’s moribund economy, the ongoing destruction of the middle class and the growing level of income inequality in which the 1 percent get richer at everyone else’s expense.

The American system is much more fascist and oligarchic than capitalistic. Special incentives, tax breaks and subsidies are given to crony corporations and certain industries in order to buy votes and generate kickbacks for lawmakers. And central planners set prices and control production levels of foods and other commodities. These policies create malinvestment and shortages and cause increased costs for staples and other goods by acting as a sort of hidden tax. Much of this stems from the creation of the Federal Reserve — which is neither federal, nor holds reserves — and Great Depression-era legislation that was bad at the time but has since morphed into something much worse.

Elijah “Mob Mentality” Cummings Says Removing the Confederate Flag is Not Enough

Well, Representative Elijah E. Cummings. If you’re going to erase history like ISIS is trying to do, don’t stop with just the Confederate flag. You must erase any likenesses or references to racists who hid behind it, like all the democrats who filibustered the Civil Rights Act led by KKK member democrat senator Robert “Sheets” Byrd of WV, and his good friend Al Gore Sr. Don’t forget the democrats who actually founded the KKK, and the democrats who implemented poll taxes and Jim Crow laws, and democrat president LBJ who said “we’ll have these ni***rs voting democrat for 200 years.” Don’t for democrat presidents like Bill Clinton and even Barack Obama who campaigned behind the Confederate flag while pandering for votes.  I’m sure I missed MANY who deserve your ire and energy to erase. It seems that if you carry your mob mentality madness to a logical conclusion, you’ll have to erase the entire democrat party.

Dem: Removing Confederate flag ‘not enough’

By Timothy Cama

+

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) on Sunday welcomed the movement in South Carolina and elsewhere against the Confederate flag, but said much more needs to be done to help race relations.

“It is a major thing that has to happen, and it will happen, I agree,” he said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

“And I applaud the folks in South Carolina for doing that. I also applaud the Governor of Alabama for doing what he’s done, taking down the flag,” Cummings continued. “But that is simply is not enough.”

Obama: Constitutionalist when a Republican is in Power; Marxist when HE is in Power

This statement from Barack Obama in 2006 sounds ALMOST like he has actually read the Constitution, and ALMOST like he ACTUALLY believes in it.

Barack Obama (2006): “Americans fought a revolution in part over the right to be free from unreasonable searches, ensure that our government couldn’t come knocking in the middle of the night for no reason. We need to find a way forward to make sure that we can stop terrorists while protecting privacy, and liberty, of innocent Americans. We have to find a way to give the president the power he needs to protect us, while making sure that he doesn’t abuse that power. It is possible to do that. We’ve done it before. We can do it again.”

So, what happened between 2006 and 2015 to change Obama from sounding like Rand Paul (who is right on the issue of the “Patriot” Act), to sounding like the little Marxist dictator he has become? Instead of guarding AGAINST unreasonable search and seizure as our Constitution mandates, and as he once proclaimed, Obama has actually EXPANDED the unconstitutional search and seizure provisions of the “Patriot” Act with other top secret programs that were exposed by Edward Snowden. You do realize that had Edward Snowden done what he did while Bush was in office that every Obama supporter would have called Snowden a hero instead of calling him a traitor now, right?
