Trump to divert $7.2 billion in additional Pentagon funds to build 900 miles of Border Wall…

Trump Taking Major Step To Complete Border Wall Construction

 

The Trump administration is preparing to divert more than $7 billion in funds from the Pentagon to build an additional nearly 900 miles of border wall along the southern border.

 

“The Pentagon funds would be extracted, for the second year in a row, from military construction projects and counternarcotics funding,” The Washington Post reported. “According to the plans, the funding would give the government enough money to complete approximately 885 miles of new fencing by spring 2022, far more than the 509 miles the administration has slated for the U.S. border with Mexico.”

 

Trump has struggled to get the funding needed to complete the construction of the border wall from Democrats who do not want to secure America’s borders and from Democrat-appointed judicial activists who have repeatedly sabotaged his immigration agenda.

 

Earlier this month, a federal appeals court overturned a lower court ruling that blocked the Trump administration from diverting billions from military construction funds to fund the border wall.

 

“The decision from the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, based in New Orleans, lifts an injunction issued last month in Texas that blocked the reallocation plan,” USA Today reported. “In the 2-1 ruling, judges granted the administration’s request to temporarily halt the nationwide injunction from U.S. District Judge David Briones of El Paso. Congress appropriated the $3.6 billion to the Department of Defense for 127 construction projects, Briones had ruled, so the Trump administration shouldn’t divert it to the border wall.”

FANTASTIC! Now, as OUR Constitution MANDATES the government protect OUR borders, the DOJ needs to show they are working for the masters of this government, we the people, and start arresting for obstructing justice and treason EVERY government official involved in various “Sanctuary” towns, cities, states around the country.

If the DOJ refuses to do this then it is proof positive they are only working for Deep State and must be destroyed.

We need to cut foreign aid in half or all of it especially in the places that are against us and corruption is high. Illuminate all tax dollars and government funds for illegals in the US make it a law that no funds will be used for illegals. Use the money for the wall and technology.

What do you bet, that after Trump is re-elected in 2020, he cuts off foreign aid to Ukraine? That would take a big bite out of Soros’ present income.

In half…?? Cut the whole thing, from top to bottom and start over. If foreign aid is needed it should be for humanitarian reasons, not much else. If a country needs funds to protect itself from another, hostile country, then an agreement can be worked out where said country pays the US for that protection. In the case of a country like Israel, sell them military gear at a deep discount but provide no money, directly. Unless a conflict breaks out and they request assistance, stay out of their business.

“Commerce with all nations, alliance with none, should be our motto. Money, not morality, is the principle commerce of civilized nations. Peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations; entangling alliances with none.”

Thomas Jefferson

Once this 900 miles is in place, we need to begin the purge of illegals already here. I pray to see the day where we have a net export of illegals rather than import.

As an American of spanish/mexican descent I approve wholeheartedly!! Come in the right way, or dont come at all!! My father served in the U.S.Navy, he loved this country, it gave him the means to provide for his family at a job he liked and then to strike out on his own to be his own boss and business owner. He instilled in my brothers and I a love of country,one of my older brothers and I joined law enforcement and are now both retired. G.B.A!!! M.A.G.A!!

Human beings and all animals are territorial. Denying that is counter-intuitive and counter-natural. “Good fences make good neighbors,” as the Robert Frost poem “Mending Wall” goes, reveals the psychological understanding of human relationships involving boundaries. Where boundaries are clear, honored, and respected, relationships may prosper without suspicion and confusion. When one understands where his property begins and ends, he is free to pursue his functions on his side as his neighbor is free to pursue his functions on the other side, thus making for more clearly defined parameters of activity and better relationships between and among people. Nothing can be more contentious between neighbors than a property boundary dispute. Strong walls and fences reduce the probability of disputes and contentions. In olden days they built forts and surrounded their cities with strong walls. Enemies were always trying to breach the walls for nefarious purposes. The “curtilage,” of a residence under common law is the area of land occupied by a dwelling and its yard and outbuildings, and is enclosed, or deemed to be enclosed, for the owner’s better use and enjoyment. The intention of those who oppose boundaries is to produce confusion, to blur relationships between and among people, to take their freedom, and to make them feel insecure, fearful, and more dependent on authority and thus more subject to submission of the authority. In short, Democrats and other enemies to freedom.

Hire more hands, machinery and work around the clock. US snipers should be deployed to protect the workers and the snipers should have orders to kill any possible threats.

I’ll volunteer for this duty. We don’t even need snipers, just a few battalions of grunts. Supply the beer, porn, and plenty of pogi-bait and they will easily be good to 600+ yards. Wake them up at 04:30 and don’t serve breakfast, they will probably invade Mexico just because they can.

Excellent.

The military wastes so much money (every department in every unit has an credit card) and they buy expensive pens and things they should not buy like coffee. I used to have the job of seeing every purchase (like a monthly credit card for every department in my unit) come across my computer and had to pay all those credit cards statements, as well as approve all medical TDY orders etc. Taxpayers would scream bloody murder if they knew how much of their money was scammed and wasted. In some commands, colonels and generals get to buy new office furniture every 2-3 years if they don’t like the furniture of the previous colonel/general (times around 40 offices) Nothing wrong with the furniture – just did not like style.

And sadly, everyone puts their pork projects into the military budget …and then accuses any congressmen who does not want to sign the bloated defense budget – anti military. That RINO NJ governor Chris Christie did that when congressmen objected to millions of dollars of NJ pork projects NOT related to the NJ flood or to the military were added to the defense budget.

1,954 miles = USA Mexico border.

900 miles fills a lot of it in one go.

This does not include the hundreds of miles going up now or the number of miles already constructed.
