Prototype of the Great Wall Of Trump’s Southern Border ?

Yuuge, and the southern border is only 11k miles shorter than the original.

h/t AFVet, It’s doable, here’s the practical version:

Open Thread Ya’ll, today is Nevada, or whatever they call these CaCa things.

    Thanks for the video. I know that Trump will figure out the best way to build that wall. And he will get Mexico to pay for it too. I can hardly wait to see it go up. 🙂

    • DeniseVB says:

      They could save a lot of money by recruiting every able bodied person on unemployment or welfare, much like the old Civilian Conservation Corps. In the days before welfare, the government paid you to work. Even convicted non-violent criminals could be sentenced to this Federal Community Service 🙂 I should run for President, heh.

      • blowme0bama says:

        That’s actually an economically good idea in that there would then be loads of people who would have at least some construction experience who would then be available to replace all the illegals doing construction work now.

        • elliesmom says:

          A blank wall like that would be very tempting for taggers. The furniture store in the town where I used to live had a windowless concrete wall that faced the parking lot. It was a favorite spot for the local kids to get busy with spray paint. So the owners came up with a plan. Every spring they would give the wall a fresh coat of paint. Then they would offer local mural artists some “real estate” on the wall. The kids were invited to submit art proposals, too. The wall became a local attraction, and the kids left it alone.
          What if we built the wall and invited artists to paint a section of the wall? We could have a thousand mile long art museum on our border.

      Nice wall here. 😀

    USA Today has a guide to the Nevada Caucus tonight. Results are expected after midnight on the east coast.

    • Somebody says:

      The republican candidates are having a “voter summit” on Megyn Kelly’s show tonight. Trump has declined to participate. Rubio will be appearing by satellite which is probably a good thing; he sweats enough as it is can you imagine combining that with Megyn’s drool?

      • leslie says:

        She can’t drool any more than Hannity did last night. I saw about 60 seconds and couldn’t tolerate the drool pool where my teevee was sitting. good thing I turned away before I drowned. 😉

      • DeniseVB says:

        Little Miss Tuffy should get a voter summit with Hills and The Bern too. That would be fun to watch.

    The Obama Administration Wants to Make Sure Non-Citizens Vote in the Upcoming Election

    • Somebody says:

      You would there are some issues that are sacrosanct, only allowing citizens to vote should be one of them. If we allow non-citizens to vote then there is no point in voting, because our votes, our desires are nullified by someone that isn’t even a citizen. Either we have a country or we don’t, what is hard about that concept for the left???

    • taw46 says:

      There is so much corruption in our government. The far left doesn’t care about our country and its laws, never has. And the media is just as bad. Years ago, this would have been a major story, but I don’t see any of the MSM reporting on this. We need someone strong as President, who will begin to clean out these agencies.

      That photo gave me an idea. Why not build a bike/walking trail along the wall ? With corporate sponsored rest areas like on some of the interstates?

  6. Somebody says:

    If a wall is built, number one I hope it does the job we need it to do…..but it would also be nice if it was attractive and not an eyesore.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Well, Bernie’s won the coveted angry black man vote 😉

      • elliesmom says:

        How could he not? I think Hillary is taking the black vote, especially the men, for granted. I’d say it’s going to bite her in the butt, but we all know the DNC will give the nomination to whoever they choose, regardless of how the people vote.

      • driguana says:

        Spike Lee spikes it for Bernie…another reason never to consider voting for him.

        • leslie says:

          I can’t imagine Hillary’s war room is too concerned though. They have all those super delegates lined up, right?
          It’s Sanders’ war room that will be up in arms when those little snowflakes finally learn what politics in the real world of Democrats is like. That little girl crying down thread will be devastated when HRC walks away with the nomination.

      • Propertius says:

        Well, Bernie’s won the coveted angry black man vote

        Or at least the coveted wealthy, privileged, angry black man vote.

    Denise ~ Do we have an Oscar Pool this year ? (Maybe I missed it?)
    BTW: I watched the nominated documentary about Nina Simone on Netflix last night. Netflix is also streaming “Amy” and “Cartel Land” both also nominated in the documentary category for Oscars this year.
    I’m seeing the short films this weekend at a local theater that now devotes a screen for them every year on Oscar weekend. 🙂

    I didn’t read this:

    • taw46 says:

      I read the original article where he asks the governors to send him a list of regulations they disagree with. Then proceeds to tell them why all of those regulations are needed, so of course, all suggestions would be ignored. Right, the little dictator wants input.

  10. elliesmom says:

    I was watching Jake Tapper the night of the South Carolina primary. They started talking about today’s caucus, and it turned into a funny conversation about regional accents and dialects. Coming from the Boston area, I’ve sort of had to develop a sense of humor about how I say things. I only moved about 60 miles, but I’m getting a lot of, “You’re not from Rho Disland, are you?” Fortunately, I don’t drink “cawfee” so I get spared that one. So is it “Nevaada” or “Nevahda” where you live? Trump says “Nevahda”, and Tapper laughed. I say “Nevahda”, too, but then my mother’s sister is my “ahnt”.

    • taw46 says:

      I was reading a lot about this last night. RS McCain banned for life. Ace, Adam Baldwin, and several others left Twitter. Reports of Twitter “shadow banning” conservatives. (This i would not doubt, because over the last several weeks, i don’t see tweets from some people I follow. Have to go to their account to see). Hope someone comes up with an alternative, read it was being worked on. I know micro-blogging sites exist, but not perfect. Read some users are checking out

      • DeniseVB says:

        Do we know what Twit sin McCain committed ?

      • votermom says:

        I signed up for MeWe ( as a social network.
        They say they believe in privacy and are #not4sale

        There is a group of rightwing writers on there which is why I went there.

        We’ll see.

        Look for me as Vi M if you go there.

        Not sure how it works really, seems mostly group oriented.

        • taw46 says:

          I read today that stopped taking sign ups, did not want conservatives. Don’t know if that is true. Some people have signed up for freeze peach. I will have to read about all of these sites.

          • votermom says:

            here is the mewe about page

            MeWe began in 2011 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, as a vision hatched over a forgettable dinner between good friends who had previously been early founders of social media, Mark Weinstein and Jonathan Wolfe. With Facebook all the rage, Mark and Jonathan felt something was getting lost: the spirit of our democracy and the backbone of our privacy. The big technology companies, you know who they are, had reverted to treating us as commodities. They somehow mistook people signing up to use their service as a welcome invitation to mine, spy, and sell our information to advertisers. All in all, it felt pretty creepy.

            and when I browse their groups this is their message at the top:
            MeWe is not in the business of politics and has a clear Terms of Service that defines “acceptable use.”
            We are for law abiding citizens everywhere. Read our Terms of Service.

            So that seems encouraging.
            Still seems small but under Groups/Politics almost all the groups have right-leaning names. 😉

          • taw46 says:

            Thanks for that, vm. Will take a look.

    Hot Air:

    With all of that said, I’d like to answer the question of who should actually be responsible for either “stopping” someone running for president or handing them the winner’s trophy. And in a bit of irony, I’ll call on the WaPo editors who started this conversation, taken from one short passage buried far down in their diatribe where they offer some possible “excuses” for not attacking Donald Trump. (Emphasis added)

    There are several pretexts Republican officials might offer to avoid giving Mr. Trump the public thrashing he deserves: condemnations from “establishment” politicians might only make him stronger; the results of the GOP nominating process deserve some respect, and Republicans must abide by the rules; maybe Mr. Trump would beat the Democrats in November.

    Whether you work in the newsroom, write editorials, drone on from your cable news anchor desk or stand on a soap box, perhaps you hate The Donald or maybe you love him. But in the end, we’re talking about an election here. And if that many people are supporting a particular candidate and setting them up for a potential victory under the established rules, doesn’t that say something rather important? In the end, it wasn’t Reince Priebus or the rest of the RNC who made Trump a leader in the polls. It wasn’t the network news anchors who handed him sweeping victories in New Hampshire and South Carolina. It was the voters who answered the phones when the pollsters called and showed up at their precincts to cast their votes. If you want to insult someone for making this choice, why not be honest and just say that you despise the American voters taking part in the democratic process?

    • lyn says:

      Exactly. The donor class doesn’t like losing its power to those pesky and irrational voters.

    • elliesmom says:

      I knew that was Jazz Shaw before I clicked on the link.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Wasn’t it the RNC that made Trump sign a loyalty pledge not to run as third party and support the eventual nominee or they wouldn’t let him on the state ballots? Idiots.

      • Somebody says:

        Yes, but they didn’t expect him to win Denise. That pledge was to keep him from taking his voters and running 3rd party and if he did anyway then they’d have his signature to throw in his face.

        I’m getting really, really sick and tired of all the pundits and their anti-Trump drivel. I’m sick of talking heads breathlessly conversing about how to take Trump out. They have these conversations with other talking heads, strategists, various elected officials and some party officials. WTF???

        I’m waiting for Megyn Kelly to suggest someone take Trump into a room and only one come out……..I assume she’ll suggest Cruz for the job since he’s already tried that with Carson. Who knows maybe she’ll suggest that tonight in her little voter forum.

        Haha, someone should let Megyn know she’s the right’s Keith Olbermann, gee how did that work out for Keith??

        • lyn says:

          • DeniseVB says:

            Wasn’t that great “……and that’s just on Trump’s first day in office, imagine what he’ll do on the second day…”

            Two numbers jumped out at me … the 5 billion for the Obamacare computer system and the 6 billion Hillary misplaced at State. That alone would pay for the border fence. 🙂

          • AFVet says:

            Thanks Lyn for posting that over here. 😀
            This guy really nailed it.
            This Country is bleeding money at an outrageous rate and I only see one man out there that can stop it.
            I think the Country is willing to try a businessman this time, especially one who has a track record like Trump’s.
            I don’t care about his marriages or his personal history so much.
            None of these guys are what you call “choir boys”.
            Choir boys don’t survive long in the high end business world.
            This Country needs a gladiator, well seasoned in the tactics it takes to win the battles.

          • lyn says:

            AFVet, I agree with you. That’s why the establishment is trying to take Trump down. People seem to be obsessed with Trump: He is not conservative or he is vulgar. Sometimes the needed change is greater than the man.

      After watching a 30 second flawless commercial,still having problems with the rally video, but did notice the black curtain behind the stage, so they’re just using half the arena.

  18. Somebody says:

    So did anybody else see O’Reilly last night? He interviewed Rubio and Cruz. Rubio refused to answer whether he’d grant amnesty or not, he kept reverting to talking points. Cruz took a harder stance than he’s taken before insisting he will deport every single illegal in this country and if they get deported they can’t ever become a citizen. I like Ted’s new stance, too bad I think it’s for political expedience. I think passing a law that says if you’re caught here illegally you will never, ever become a citizen is a fantastic idea, provided it’s enforced. Then we give people X amount of time to get out and apply to come here legally.

    Back to the interview, Marco basically told Bill that if he’s elected we’re going to war in Syria. Oh he prettied it up, using his talking points about a Sunni led army, blah, blah. However, he said they need support and they’ll need more than just air support. Bill pressed him on NATO, he then said in essence……sure call it NATO, whatever, we are NATO one way or the other it will be our boots on the ground. So the GOPe is going to lead with a candidate promising war in another middle east shit hole??? We all know Hillary wants to topple Assad, so if Hillary and Rubio get the nominations I guess we’re headed to war in the middle east again. I’m sure we’ll beat the war drums for a bit, but it seems to be a foregone conclusions.

    Speaking of Rubio I came up with another name for him……”The Understudy”. We all know the GOPe really wanted Yeb! That didn’t work out so enter the understudy, and little Marco has worked so hard to memorize all of his lines. I’m pretty sure if you look closely enough you see Marco’s puppet strings.

    • mothy67, says:

      I like the Understudy.

      • Somebody says:

        Thanks Tim! I think it fits……he’s young, he’s not quite ready for prime time, he’s still a little nervous and it shows. He’s not the lead the establishment wanted but their lead was tragically injured by Trump and the voters. Luckily their little understudy has most of lines memorized and all he needs is some good direction from the right people and a little encouragement from the media.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Would Cruz or Rubio even be qualified to run for Governor ? I like them, but I’m a little skeptical of another First Term Senator. As was John Edwards, but he ran a business for 20 years, then beat an incumbent with his snake oil charm.

      • lyn says:

        The Understudy is perfect. People liked Obama also because he was electable.

    • lyn says:

      Marco sweats like Nixon, and we know how that turned out.

      • Somebody says:

        I know, he does. Denise likes that Buffalo Springfield song “For What It’s Worth” from 1968 and I keep resisting the urge to post a reply that asks……so who is the 2016 Nixon……because I don’t want to hear Marco.

      She should have made calls for Hillary in 2008 and encountered an Obama supporter on the other end of the phone. lol

      • elliesmom says:

        After thinking about this for a few minutes, I realized something. If she’s doing GOTV calling, has she been given a list of registered Democrats or is she cold calling from the phone book? If she’s got a registered Democrat list, it’s interesting she’s getting “Trumped”. I don’t remember ever calling anyone who wasn’t a Democrat when I called for Hillary.

        • DeniseVB says:

          GMTA em. Or she would have been given the donors’ lists from the DNC, DSCC or DCCC. It’s illegal to cold call per the Do Not Call lists, but the party calls are legal because you have “made a personal contact and established a relationship” with the committees via your donation. And candidates sell their lists to each other, etc, etc

          Or, there are a lot of ticked off Dems out there voting for Trump 🙂

    • leslie says:

      Geez. This is what disappointment looks like to our special snowflakes? She should try going door to door and asking for contributions for Greenpeace or Sierra Club as my daughter did, or canvassing Milwaukee for Hillary like I did in ’08. I had someone come to the door with a gun. My life was threatened when I protested the Iraq war and had to call for police protection.
      I wonder if they were calling some of the states that border Mexico. They really ought to have some kind of training — or life experience before they put their little idealistic selves out here to face what is really going on in the parts of the country where real problems exist.

    I just got home a little bit ago. While at my son’s, they wanted to talk about Bernie and the elections. Oddly enough, they want to vote for him even though they agree that the D’s won’t run him. And even more oddly enough, they had NO Idea when the IL primary is, even thought it is on my son’s birthday. They were pretty upset when I said I wouldn’t vote for a Democrat ever again and reminded them that this has been my position since 2008. My DIL was fairly surprised that it wasn’t simply a matter of BHO. Oh well.
    Then I came home and the phone rang while I was looking up the dates/hours for early voting. It was a Sanders person. I explained my position and he was really surprised that anyone was still upset with the Democrats over 5/31/2008. But at least he knew the significance of the date. We had a really nice conversation. When I suggested that even if Sanders won every state and every vote, the DNC would not run him, he agreed with me. He said, “I’m not supposed to say this” and then went on to say that he had just returned from the Nevada caucus 2 days ago. He was a really dedicated worker who says he won’t be surprised when Bernie is dumped by the DNC.

    • taw46 says:

      So, if that were to happen, would the caller vote for Hillary in the General?

      • leslie says:

        He didn’t say. but I suppose so. Although he did say I gave him some things to think about. Our conversation was pretty long given the circumstances…. He became more and more conversational and open to what I was saying after I shared that I’d been actively volunteering on Dem campaigns since I was 16 y/o. He, of course, hadn’t even heard of some of the politicians I worked for. They probably died before he was born. 😉
