NBC´s myth of sawing
through the wall

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.

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.

If you wait long enough, the Lawfare actors brazenly expose their intents. Cue the example today as former SDNY U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara showcases the ideology behind the DOJ and FBI weaponizing their offices based on political policy differences. It has been outlined that President Trump would prefer to withdraw the U.S. from NATO. Trump’s view stems from NATO allies (Germany) engaging with NATO adversaries (Russia) with strategic energy policy (gas pipeline) to benefit Russia; while simultaneously demanding the U.S. taxpayer fund the defense of Germany (and EU) from Russia.

Prime Minister Theresa May´s Brexit deal suffered an overwhelming parliamentary rejection on Tuesday, a rejection on the scale of Michael Dukakis´s rejection in 1984. The consequences for Brexit, as a reality as much as anything, are highly significant. May must now return to the House of Commons within the next week to offer a pathway forward. If she fails to do so, members of Parliament will put forward their own alternatives for a vote. But as a first step, expect May to travel to meet top European Union officials in Brussels. May will beg, bribe

President Trump remarked on Monday, that he felt confident the Clemson Tigers would appreciate the fast food feast he had provided for them when they visited the White House. And it appears, at least in the case of the Tigers star quarterback, that he was exactly right.

Brexit campaigner Nigel Farage has said that the political class ignoring the will of the people is a “complete betrayal of the greatest democratic exercise in the history of our nation.” Calling out the establishment for attempting to frustrate Brexit, Mr Farage said on Jeremy Vine on 5 on Tuesday, “Let’s be clear: we didn’t just vote [to Leave the European Union] in a referendum — we backed it up in a General Election where 80 percent of people voted for parties that said they would honour the result of the referendum.”

Senate Judiciary Committee members are grilling William Barr, President Trump´s nominee for attorney general, in his first day of confirmation hearings on Capitol Hill. At the outset, Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, the new chairman of the committee, told Barr he should expect to face questions about a memo he wrote that contained language critical of the special counsel´s investigation into whether President Trump obstructed justice. "You will be challenged, You should be challenged. The memo, there will be a lot of talk about it, as there should be," Graham said.

PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. — After a painful midterm election for Florida Democrats that showed this crucial swing state drifting away from them, a group of party activists gathered at a Cuban restaurant last month to receive some bitter medicine — and a sober warning — to go with their croquettes and plantain chips. Democrats started organizing Latino voters too late, didn’t tailor their message for an increasingly diverse community and ultimately took Latino support for granted, a Florida pollster told about 50 members of the Democratic Hispanic Caucus of Broward County. Democrats will lose again in 2020 if they don’t

Republicans are crafting an early strategy to take back the House in 2020, zeroing in on districts carried by President Trump that recently flipped to Democrats and starting a recruitment process that will have a heavy emphasis on female candidates. (Snip) The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) will target the 31 Democrats running in Trump districts, especially several seats they view as most ripe for the taking: freshman Reps.

The Fight for $15 isn’t living up to its promise. For years, liberals have claimed that the minimum wage needs to increase to $15 an hour to provide a living wage for full-time workers. The stated goal, as socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders writes on his website, is straightforward, “We must ensure that no full-time worker lives in poverty.” In one way, the campaign has been remarkably successful. California and New York are phasing in a statewide $15 an hour minimum wage. Numerous cities, including Seattle, Minneapolis and Washington D.C., have passed $15 an hour minimum wage

Has President Trump suckered Democrats and the Deep State into a trap that will enable a radical downsizing of the federal bureaucracy? In only 5 more days of the already-“longest government shutdown in history” (25 days and counting, as of today), a heretofore obscure threshold will be reached, enabling permanent layoffs of bureaucrats furloughed 30 days or more. Don’t believe me that federal bureaucrats can be laid off?

Who would want to buy that after such a string of insults? Isn´t ad rule number one to not insult the customer? Well, this one does.

A stench has been emanating from the J. Edgar Hoover Building (FBI headquarters) for over two years. It landed Saturday on the front page of the New York Times in an article citing “former law enforcement officials” claiming they had to deal with “explosive implications” that President Donald Trump was “knowingly” or “unwittingly” working for Russia. Thus, the story goes, there was a basis to begin the Russia collusion investigation. In fact, “The Gray Lady” was covering the derrieres of the Obama administration officials involved in the cabal to frame Trump, who now fear an imminent Special Counsel finding that

Are you a man? That is to say, are you a genetic male who also happens to identify as a "man," for some increasingly antiquated reason? If so, are you under the mistaken impression that you´re not a rapist? Our society has come a long way in shaming men for behaving in any way that anybody anywhere doesn´t like, and reminding men that we´re all complicit even if we don´t behave that way. But it´s not nearly enough. The mere fact of maleness is shameful and problematic. Men and boys everywhere need

Kelly finally resolved her exit three months after she was axed as host of the 9 a.m. hour of “Today,” landing her a $30 million payout to take her salary to the agreed amount in her contract — a total of $69 million. The former Fox News host lasted just 18 months at NBC News, but Page Six learned during the course of her negotiations

Gillette is embracing the #MeToo movement in a new digital ad campaign aimed at men, the latest message from an advertiser attempting to change societal norms. The ad, dubbed “We Believe,” opens with audio of news about the current #MeToo movement, bullying and “toxic masculinity.” A narrator then goes on to dispute the notion that “boys will be boys,” asking, “Is this the best a man can get? Is it? We can’t hide from it. It has been going on far too long. We can’t laugh it off, making the same old excuses.”

For the last 35 years, the snowpack in the West’s mountains has resisted the impacts of global warming. But that could soon change, according to a new study out of Oregon State University. The study, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, found that although climate change should have caused a steep decrease in snowpack, naturally occurring, decades-long weather variations shielded the Cascades, Sierras and Rockies from some of the effects. Although snow stations have recorded some decline, it hasn’t been statistically significant. But according to the study, without this natural weather variation, snowpack in Oregon could have declined
