NBC´s myth of sawing
through the wall

Donsurber.com, by Don Surber

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 1/11/2019 6:31:10 AM

NBC reporters showed they know as much about saws as they do AR-15s.The network reported, "President Donald Trump has repeatedly advocated for a steel slat design for his border wall, which he described as ´absolutely critical to border security´ in his Oval Office address to the nation Tuesday. But Department of Homeland Security testing of a steel slat prototype proved it could be cut through with a saw, according to a report by DHS. ((Snip) "Cleary these were cut with an acetylene torch (one tank of acetylene and one tank of oxygen each weighting about

The creativity of American forum posters is impressive. From the comments after the article:

Worse than just solid steel, those are hollow and filled with concrete. These would be a b**** to cut through. You´d need to torch this a long time as the concrete would suck up the heat. Sawing it won´t work well as most blades that cut steel well are dulled quickly cutting into concrete. Chuck a few pieces of rebar in there in the center of the concrete and it would be much more difficult. Make it really exciting by embedding smallish explosives occasionally.

A beautiful mind!

I guess they rehired the guy who faked the truck explosions from years back in 1993. I think it was an old Dateline skit where they added incendary devices to ensure a fire would erupt if gasoline leaked from a GMC truck hit by a test car.

NBC had to broadcast a retraction by Stone Phillips and Jane Pauly.

I doubt they´ll do that this time.

Hogwash. I used to have a portable oxyacetylene rig that TOTAL weighed about 45-50 lbs, max, nicely unitized. However, that does have pretty limited cutting time.

It is OBVIOUS to anyone with a brain that ANY fence made of ANYTHING can be cut, breached, blown up, whatever.

No wall can stand without defenses. Walls delay, inconvenience and block. The people with guns are the real block, and will arrive as soon as the wall is attacked, if proper sensors are in place.

The beauty here is that illegal alien-caused damage to the fence could be easily repaired strong as ever. Cut the jagged edges off square, then prep and weld in new material.
If I were some coyote or drug runner boss rolling up in a pickup with pressurized oxygen and acetylene tanks in the back to cut through the Americanos’ fence I’d be nervous about a hunter’s stray bullet causing an explosion.

Germany Furious at U.S. Ambassador
for Calling Out Low Defense Spending
Breitbart National Security, by John Hayward    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 3/20/2019 5:39:34     Post Reply
German politicians on Tuesday threatened to expel U.S. Ambassador Richard Grenell over his sharp criticism of Germany’s low defense spending. Grenell took Germany to task for failing to meet its own spending goals, let alone its commitment to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Grenell responded on Monday to advance word that Germany’s new budget plan calls for defense spending to peak at 1.37 percent of national income in 2020, but then begin declining to 1.25 percent by 2023. NATO members are supposed to spend 2 percent on defense, a target the Trump administration has insisted upon

This is a little funny. CNN’s Dana Bash interviews President Trump’s 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale. The discussion is about the election, but on a granular level is really about data use in the 2020 election. (Snip) However, the more interesting aspect to the interview actually comes after the segment when CNN’s Jake Tapper happens to note what the DNC is attempting to do. Within Tapper’s remarks he happens to outline why the DNC is running the crew currently enlisted as candidates. Watch specifically at the 04:00 point.

In the past several days the 2020 Democrat candidates have been assembling a rather odd set of 2020 platform issues. President Trump notes it all seems rather “strange”: (Tweets)In addition to promoting infanticide; eliminating borders and Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) and banning guns; the Democrats have all signed on to The Green New Deal, which advocates for: raising taxes, paying people not to work, eliminating air travel, banning cows and rebuilding every structure in America to run on ‘sustainable energy’. The platform is now expanding to: lowering the voting age to 16; eliminating the electoral college; placing term

John Walker Lindh, a former American Taliban militant convicted in 2002 for supporting the terrorist organization, is due to be freed in May. The former Islamist fighter, dubbed “Detainee 001 in the war on terror,” was arrested in 2001, just months after the Sept. 11 attacks and the start of the war in Afghanistan. Then just 20 years old, he was among a group of Taliban fighters who were captured by U.S. forces. Within a year, Walker Lindh was convicted of supporting the Taliban and sentenced to 20 years in prison —

It appears it really will be another promise made and another promise kept by an American president who continues to confound his enemies and delight his tens of millions of supporters both in the United States and around the world.Via The Washington Examiner: The Defense Department has identified $12.8 billion in possible funding that it could use to fulfill President Trump’s call for a border wall.

President Trump Wins SCOTUS Decision

Conservative, by Sundance    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 3/19/2019 4:13:10     Post Reply
The Supreme Court reversed a prior 9th Circuit Court ruling restricting when illegal aliens could be detained and deported. The SCOTUS ruling (full pdf below) was in favor the Trump administration, allowing federal officials to detain and deport illegal aliens after they have served their time in the U.S. for other crimes regardless of whether they were picked up immediately or later, after criminal release. The 9th Circuit Court previously stated ICE would have to detain illegal aliens immediately after release or they would be exempt from later detainment.

Oh dear, this doesn’t bode well for those who are concerned about U.S. imposed 20% auto tariffs on EU, mostly German, automobiles. [NOTE: Pay attention to the timing here as it relates to Nord Stream 2] Germany’s chancellor Angela Merkel has announced she will no longer uphold her prior agreement for NATO military spending. At the 2014 NATO meeting in Wales, all NATO members agreed they would immediately begin a process to increase their military spending to two percent of GDP. However, over time, and in direct contravention to the purpose of the effort, Germany (Merkel)

The people who thirst for justice over Washington’s continued attempts to deny Donald Trump the power of the presidency make a mistake in treating Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe as an actual whodunnit. (Snip)The “who” that “dunnit” was none other than Barack Obama’s CIA and FBI turning that facial absurdity into probable cause to go fishing into the life of Donald Trump to find something, anything, that might damage him. The object of the Mueller probe was never to investigate collusion because nobody could possibly believe something so idiotic. It was to create suspense in stupid people

According to Mexican federal and state authorities, gunmen for Hector Raul “El Tory” Luna Luna were linked to numerous mutilations and other high-impact crimes throughout Nuevo Leon. El Tory recently assumed control of CDN after an early release from a federal prison. The cartel boss was originally imprisoned for drug trafficking and a 2008 grenade attack on the U.S. Consulate in Monterrey.

Political leaders and public figures were falling over themselves this weekend to condemn the mosque attacks in New Zealand, while dozens of Christians were slaughtered by Muslims in Nigeria to the sound of crickets. The mosque attacks were indeed a horrific affair and worthy of universal condemnation. Presidents, prime ministers, royalty, and religious leaders rushed to extend their condolences to victims and their families — as well they should — while decrying the hate that purportedly motivated the shootings. Without exception, the mainstream media gave top billing to the shootings, with newspapers carrying the story on their front pages

I am excited by the opportunity to share my perspective and views with the Fox News audience and to help shape the dialogue at this important juncture in our history. More importantly, I’m eager to learn from the experience. The 2020 presidential election is a consequential moment in American democracy. Everything we believe in as Americans will be examined and, in essence, ratified by our votes. But it concerns me, as it does the majority of good Americans, that our national debate has become hostile and disrespectful. We no longer simply agree to disagree. Too often we demonize the intentions

Asked if she believes the state should adopt a new flag, Warren had a short answer. "Yes," she said to an applauding crowd.
