  • Trump's Wall

    Smugglers have breached the Trump administration’s border wall along the US-Mexico frontier more than 3,000 times, government maintenance records obtained by the Washington Post reveal.

    Nearly 500 miles of barrier was constructed by the Trump administration beginning in 2019, mostly in rural New Mexico and Arizona. Former president Trump touted the “big, beautiful wall” as the “Rolls-Royce” of barriers, but smugglers have breached the wall at least 3,272 times, mostly with common power tools found at hardware stores.

    “No structure is impenetrable, so we will continue to work to focus resources on modern, effective border management measures to improve safety and security,” Luis Miranda, a spokesperson for Customs and Border Protection (CBP) told the Post.

    He added that border security “requires a variety of resources and efforts, infrastructure, technology, and personnel”, much of which was not funded when Trump’s wall was constructed.

    Before its construction, former president Donald Trump promised Mexico would pay for construction of the border wall and that it would be “virtually impenetrable”.

    Ultimately, 458 miles of new border fencing was paid for by taxpayers at a cost of $11bn and there was evidence as early as 2019 that smugglers were sawing through the boundary with $100 power tools.

    During Biden's SOTU speech the other night, the Trump trolls, Boebert and Greene, started their heckling by chanting, "Build the wall! Build the wall!"

        The idea of the wall was always more useful to Twitler than the wall itself. Guaranteed crowd pleaser at all the Nuremberg rallies.
        Catnip for the xenophobes and bed wetters.

        Like elective wars, more profit (and more political capital) to be made by dragging the whole project out.

        Trump and the people cashing the checks never gave a sh*t about illegal immigration - without it, tRump’s labor force would’ve taken a major hit.

          The people behind Trump, Bannon, Miller and Sessions were masterful in giving ADD Don something simple he could stay on task with, and his low education followers could understand...

          Too bad is such stupid idea

            Another $11 billion down the toilet, I guess.

            Isn't Mexico supposed to pay for this?

                The greed of employers is greater than the bigotry of the nativists.

                    I wonder how long neighboring states will be on board with accepting/ giving refuge to millions of refugees... as soon as economies begin to suffer from the war, you know who will be to blame.

                    ugly!

                          Within the Trump Cult exists a fog. All of these things (the lies, failures and general malfeasance of Trump) disappear into the fog within minutes of occurring, never to be remembered again. Ask anybody in the cult and they'll say, "He never said that," or "He never did that." Cult amnesia. Psychologists call this cult behavior, "Memory loss, disassociation and euphoric recall." They remember things as they are told to remember them, not as they truly were. (1/6 was a triumph!) I think Trump, like most sociopaths, has the innate talent of manipulation.

                                At this point the WRP is basically 90% dead. The vast majority of the post are left wingers yelling into their echo chamber. Eventually you guys will get tired of agreeing with each other and find better use of your time.

                                  I start entirely non-partisan threads with the intent of discussion. Few conservatives bother to respond.

                                  They’ve silenced themselves.

                                      The "vast majority" of posts are Shellhead bumping his Jesus thread to post more scripture.

                                        🙄

                                        According to what metric?

                                        Looks pretty active to me. No less active than the main forum.

                                        Also, this is a new forum, and the membership isn't as large as the Orange Mane...yet.

                                        The vast majority of the post are left wingers yelling into their echo chamber.
                                        Shows how skewed your political compass is. Many of these guys have been around these forums for >20 years, and just because they live somewhere left of you on the political spectrum doesn't mean they're "left-wingers."

                                        Eventually you guys will get tired of agreeing with each other...
                                        You're looking at this through the lens of your own right-wing orientation where everyone marches in lockstep, and where opinions and "beliefs" are more important than facts. In other words, you're projecting.

                                        "Agreement" isn't the point of intellectual discussions. Exchanges of ideas and information are more important.

                                        ...and find better use of your time.
                                        I think most of us understand why you would prefer we do that.

                                          Yep.

                                          With 6998 posts, the BibleBot is putting up insane numbers.

                                                This is what happens when people who oppose their “views” start to outnumber them.

                                                It’s then that they start opining about how a political sub-forum is a bad idea, etc.
