Trump visits border wall prototypes — but when will it ever be built?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander


Donald Trump was in southern California yesterday to inspect prototypes of the border wall with Mexico.

But those prototypes were actually built back in October,2017. While Trump’s visit is encouraging, you’ve got to ask: when is it going to be built?

Trump has made the case. He made the case in 2016. Yesterday, though, he reiterated that worrying about cost is a fake excuse. Even if the wall costs tens of billions of dollars, what’s the cost of all the illegals in hospitals and schools and welfare? Let alone the cost of policing and private security?

Trump also mentioned sanctuary cities. I wish he’d use a different word, one less positive and misleading. How about "fugitive cities"? The word "sanctuary" is rooted in the Latin word "sanctus," for holy. There is nothing holy about terrorists and MS-13 gangs.

I sort of wish Canada had a border wall too. Instead, Trudeau has dispatched our RCMP to be bellboys, to carry across the border the suitcases of the illegal migrants coming up from the U.S., falsely claiming to be refugees from America, when in fact they are illegals or outright criminals who Trump is about to deport.

Speaking of Trump, he's been president for 14 months now.

If there aren’t shovels in the ground at the southern border this summer, I think people are going to start to feel tricked, don’t you?

NEXT: To talk more about this story, I'm joined by Joel Pollak, Breitbart.com Editor at Large.

THEN: Edmonton Sun Senior Columnist Lorne Gunter comes on to discuss the Trudeau government's latest international embarrassment:

The Belgium state visit to Canada that turned into an unfunny comedy of errors.

FINALLY: Your letters to me!

Trudeau’s accomplishments and business card job titles:
Mr. Dress up. The Shiniest Pony. Canada’s Mascot. Foreign Relations Embarrassment. Substitute teacher. Motivational Speaker. Mr. Selfie. DJ Socks. First Prime Minister to be guilty of ethics violations. Inventor of the peoplekind movement. The man who did nothing. Terror supporter or Motivational speaker at Wahhabi Mosque Guy. Terror supporter or just give him a cheque and an apology guy. Terror supporter or I thought Atwal was cool guy. Mr.Why doesn’t everyone think I’m cool?

As for the American border wall, why not just pile garbage there. The Mexicans will be so busy picking through it that they won’t want to cross. Americans waste so much.

I’m amazed that some media people and thousands of armchair experts think that
Trudeau is weakening the Liberal Party and may have to go.
This will never happen as the Party is as Hollow as Trudeau.
Who would replace him, Iqra Khalid ?; who from another country would waste their time to come here to see that unimpressive person. We all know why her ,Hassen and Mackenna received their Cabinet jobs. It definitely wasn’t about IQ.
Think of even Jean Chretien’s cabinet, there were 10 reasonably smart people that could take over if the PM quit or was ousted.
All the Liberal’s have is the Rainbow Socks Boy, and we should all worry as, unless Singh and Scheer start to make big gains that are consistent, Trudeau will lead the Liberals to another majority.
Here is the first 2019 Election Campaign Ad for Scheer. 1 minute.

“There’s a level of admiration I actually have for China. Their basic dictatorship is actually allowing them to turn their economy around on a dime.”

trudeau’s word’s….My question is…. will we all be charged from the state of Canada if we forward his own statement(fact) to others…Is this why he wants to ban The Rebel?…It was a cbc original document…

I wonder what is taking the wall so long. Maybe it has to do with the dreamer deal.
commented 2018-03-14 21:48:54 -0400
The wall is worth every penny that gets spent on it, and I have no doubt that it will be built. Soon would be good. It is beyond me why the naysayers insist that a wall will be ineffective. It is a proven concept.

Gitmo is pretty expensive too but a damn fine housing for the terrorists that we don’t want infecting or recruiting any of our regular grade criminals in our jails and penitentiaries. Gitmo would be a good place for m16 as well. There is no shortage of radical terrorists to fill the place up with. It isn’t being fully utilized and it should be. I don’t care what it costs. I think we should be buying one way tickets for any migrants Justin coerced or invited into the country who wish to go elsewhere. I would be happy to contribute.

Lorne Gunter was great as usual! He nailed Trudeau with that Village People comment.

POINTS TO PONDER….THE POLICE AND GOVERNMENT ARE TERRIFIED AT WHAT THEY KNOW. TOMMY ROBINSON AD OTHERS KNOW WHAT WILL HAPPEN IN THE NEXT DECADE…….DO YOU KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TERRIFIED OF…….WIDE SPREAD CIVIL WAR…..THE BRITISH PEOPLE WILL ONLY HOLD BACK FOR SO LONG. IN TOMMY’S STORY THE POLICE TRIED TO HAVE HIM LEAD THE SO CALLED RIGHT WING AND WORK FOR THEM FROM THE INSIDE. WITH THIS ACTION YOU CAN SEE HOW AFRAID THE POLICE AND GOVERNMENT ARE. YOU CAN SEE THIS HAPPENING IN THE REST OF EUROPE.
IF YOU WANT TO HAVE A GREAT EUROPEAN VACATION GO TO POLAND AND HUNGARYWHY? DO YOU HAVE TO ASKWELL HERE IS THE ANSWER. THOSE COUNTRIES DON’T ALLOW MUSLIMS IN.

The simple answer is that the Wall is not a priority for them, but they know that they have to toss a handful of peanuts out for the voters every so often to make it look like they still care. They’ll renovate a couple miles of the existing wall between San Diego and Tijuana, nice visuals for Breitbart to publish, and they already own the right of way.

The cost-benefits simply don’t work – the wall will, in practise, stop very few illegals, most of whom entered the United States at legal border crossings, and simply never went home – which is to say, the wall would stop little. In addition much of their southern border is already a substantial obstacle; with walls already built in the worst areas, and others being too remote or simply a large river that offers greater obstacle than any wall. As for the schools? I simply answer, that the farmer down the street wouldn’t be able to run his business and pay his taxes, without the illegal workers that he relies on for the grunt work since Americans don’t want the work. That’s one reason why California tolerates them- their economy would fall apart if they deported them.

Just remember the Brits have hundreds of thousands of native born terrorists. They are known as football hooligans. In the old days they would have been “Tommies”. Don’t give up on the Brits just yet.

- Trump said the wall can be built within one year when he was told that it would take 6 years to be built. I’m still confident it will be built. I expect the wall to start going up mid to late summer – in time for the midterm election campaign.

- The wall itself is only part of the plan. Response teams, drones, sensors to detect tunneling, etc.

- Why would foreign leaders visit Canada? If they want to see the leader of Canada since the Liberals came to power they can meet with George Soros. The Liberals are finding new & interesting ways to disgrace themselves on the world stage. I’m betting they’re wishing Trudeau would go on vacation for the entire year instead of just 2/3 of the year. Trudeau is an idiot man-child who has been surrounded by people his entire life who told him how awesome he is.

I know how to get Mexico to pay for it.
Put the graffiti on first

Ezra, Mexico doesn’t want the wall. Why not show the beautiful wall on “THIER” southern border, to keep out immigrants?
commented 2018-03-14 20:48:15 -0400
Ezra, I quite enjoyed Lorne Gunter’s comical statements and hand gestures. His remark about Trudeau’s steel mill outfit reminding him of the Village People was quite amusing.
He also made some great points during the interview.

Once the Wall is finally built, I think President Trump should focus on the North…Canada is a spring board for Islamic terrorists who plot against the United States.

A few things about Jr.’s meltdown in the Liberal Caucus, I think it showed that Jr. has very thin skin, that the pressure from his constant series of blunders has started to get to him and that his caucus has started to get restless. The fact there are Trumpian leaks from caucus is very telling. Imagine Liberal members telling the press that they call Butts, PM Butts, what cheek. P.S. Jr. needs a time-out.

I love how the left wing blames America for creating MS 13.
