Another Brick in the Border Wall

As I reported from CPAC the GOP activist class has two big things that they have their hearts set on when it comes to the Trump’s Admin­is­tra­tion, The repeal of Oba­macare and the build­ing of the wall.

As we all know the US sen­ate in gen­eral and John McCain in par­tic­u­lar have thrown a mon­key wrench into the first (although I still have hopes that we will see some­thing come of it) but there is good news on the 2nd.

Though Home­land Secu­rity announced the move Tues­day morn­ing, the full waiver wasn’t to be avail­able until later in the day.

The waiver comes as Cus­toms and Bor­der Pro­tec­tion, one of Home­land Security’s agen­cies, is prepar­ing to name final­ists to build pro­to­types of Mr. Trump’s new bor­der wall. Designs will be built in San Diego, then sub­jected to testing.

Con­tract­ing doc­u­ments said the agency was hop­ing for designs that could reach 50 feet in height, and could with­stand breach­ing attempts for up to four hours.

To be sure this is only the first in a series of moves that are going to be nec­es­sary and the left will no doubt go wild at each one of said steps but as long as Pres­i­dent Trump can change the entire media land­scape with a sin­gle tweet, I sus­pect the wall will con­tinue to pro­ceed and the left will be in no posi­tion to stop him.

Update: Don Surber tells of other things the Trump admin­is­tra­tion is achiev­ing while nobody is looking.

As I reported from CPAC the GOP activist class has two big things that they have their hearts set on when it comes to the Trump’s Administration, The repeal of Obamacare and the building of the wall.

As we all know the US senate in general and John McCain in particular have thrown a monkey wrench into the first (although I still have hopes that we will see something come of it) but there is good news on the 2nd.

Though Homeland Security announced the move Tuesday morning, the full waiver wasn’t to be available until later in the day.

The waiver comes as Customs and Border Protection, one of Homeland Security’s agencies, is preparing to name finalists to build prototypes of Mr. Trump’s new border wall. Designs will be built in San Diego, then subjected to testing.

Contracting documents said the agency was hoping for designs that could reach 50 feet in height, and could withstand breaching attempts for up to four hours.

To be sure this is only the first in a series of moves that are going to be necessary and the left will no doubt go wild at each one of said steps but as long as President Trump can change the entire media landscape with a single tweet, I suspect the wall will continue to proceed and the left will be in no position to stop him.
