Trump’s Beloved ‘Border Wall’ Is Being Washed Away By Rainstorms

Back when he announced he would for president in 2015, Donald Trump proudly declared that he was planning to build a massive wall on the U.S.-Mexico border:

“I will build a great wall—and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me—and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.”

And Trump did build a wall of sorts, although it was actually more of a fence. But it wasn’t inexpensive, as he’d promised. Oh, and Mexico has yet to pony up a dime to pay for the wall.

As it turns out, the “great, great wall” isn’t so great after all, Gizmodo reports, because large sections of it are being ripped apart by rainstorms in the Southwest:

“Photos show former President Donald Trump’s border wall in deep disrepair after summer monsoon rains literally blew floodgates off their hinges.”

So what exactly happened? Simple. Like everything he’s ever done in his life, Trump did it half-assed and now the failure is being laid bare for all to see:

“In the rush to build the wall, Trump sidelined environmental and cultural protection laws. Those laws are meant to protect the natural world and historically significant artifacts and sites. But they also serve the purpose of ensuring multibillion-dollar construction projects don’t face catastrophic failures within a few years of being built.”

You may recall that Trump even diverted millions of dollars from the Department of Defense (even though Congress didn’t approve of his doing so), all so he could have a cheap wall/fence built that cannot even stand up to water. Hell, I have a privacy fence in my back yard that can likely handle rainwater better than the Trump wall does. And it’s made of wood, not the steel that the Donald demanded be used for his flimsy wall.

Now that we have a real president in the White House, the wall is no longer being constructed. Considering how poorly the portions that have been built are faring, that’s a wise move on the part of the Biden administration.

Oh, in case you were wondering, the wall has also been a disaster for the wildlife in the areas where it was constructed:

“That has created an environmental catastrophe for one of the most fragile ecosystems in North America, a place where the wildlife from the tropics, desert, and mountains mingle. Images captured during construction of iconic saguaros being razed as well as numerous environmental impact statements laid the risks bare, and Traphagen described camera trap photos his group has taken documenting everything from rare jaguars to common javelinas pacing along the wall in search of a way around.”

If there’s any justice in the world, nature will continue to take its toll and level the wall/fence much the same way the failed, one-term former president saw his political career cut short because the majority of Americans realized there was a monster in the Oval Office.

Or maybe we should take the wall, deconstruct it, and drop the pieces atop Mar-a-Lago from helicopters. Then Donnie can wall himself in and wait for the cops to show up and slap the cuffs on him.


Immigration The Trump Adminstration

Former White House Aide Stephen Miller Could Face Charges For Human Rights Abuses

During the four years of the Trump administration, Stephen Miller was one of failed, one-term former President Donald Trump’s closest and most influential advisers, especially on the issue of immigration, where he urged Trump to separate immigrant children from their parents and place them into internment camps reminiscent of the horrors inflicted upon Japanese Americans during the Second World War.

But if one member of Congress has her way, Miller will soon be facing charges of violating the human rights of thousands of people.

The Hill reports:

A House Democrat … called for former Trump White House adviser Stephen Miller to be jailed, citing what she called ‘human rights violations’ at the southern border.

“Rep. Veronica Escobar (D-Texas), who sits on the House Judiciary Committee, said on The Intercept’s ‘Deconstructed’ podcast that Miller should be “behind bars” for his role in the Trump administration’s zero-tolerance border policy.

“I think he committed heinous human rights violations, and I think that those around him [who] helped plot this out should be held accountable, as well.”

And while Rep. Escobar will no doubt have plenty of Democratic colleagues who also believe Miller should indeed be locked up for the things he did to immigrants seeking asylum in the United States, she acknowledges that it will be a challenge to get the former White House adviser formally charged for his crimes against humanity:

“That is going to be very difficult, but it kills me that these people could potentially walk away and even potentially rebuild their reputations. I find them to be just among the most reprehensible, abhorrent people that our generation could have ever produced.”  

The House Judiciary Committee is currently taking a long look at the way the Trump administration dealt the issue of immigration, including the incarceration of toddlers in horrific conditions: Forced to sleep on cement floors, denied essentials such as soap and toothpaste, and treated like criminals.

For his part, Miller just formed a new legal nonprofit organization he calls America First Legal, which he claims is aimed at “resisting the radical left’s agenda.”

Sounds just like something a neo-fascist would say, doesn’t it?


Donald Trump Immigration The Trump Adminstration WTF?!

Former Staffer Reveals Trump’s ‘Incandescently Stupid’ Plan For Getting Cattle Over His Border Wall 

One of Donald Trump’s signature issues and campaign promises when he ran for president in 2016 was that he’d build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border and make the Mexican government pay for it.

Here’s a quick video memory refresher:

However, as soon as construction began on the wall, it soon became clear that some unanticipated problems would require solutions, according to former Trump administration Department of Homeland Security Miles Taylor in a soon-to-be-released book he’s written, Blowback: A Warning to Save Democracy From the Next Trump

According to Newsweek, one of the most daunting challenges involved cattle.

In his book, Taylor recalls that in a March 7, 2019, meeting, Trump “out of nowhere” complained that ranchers in Texas were being allowed to open doors in the border wall to allow their cattle to reach the Rio Grande.

“No doors. I don’t want doors,” Trump said, according to Taylor. “How crazy is this? There are doors in the border wall? It’s stupid. They can just walk up, open the door, and thousands of [illegals] rush in.”

Kirstjen Nielsen, then the homeland security secretary, told Trump that this wasn’t true, Taylor writes. But Trump “didn’t care” and ordered them to acquire any land where ranchers had access to the Rio Grande.

But if you build a wall with no doors, how in the world will the cattle be able to go across?

Trump’s solution: Have the animals cross via ladders.

“Give the ranchers ladders. They can use ladders to get to the other side, but not doors. You could use small fire trucks. Call the local fire stations, and use the ladders on their trucks to help them get over.”

Taylor says the idea was “so incandescently stupid I couldn’t laugh.”

How do you tell a moron with no understanding of basic physics and the animal world that cows and horses are not going to climb ladders, no matter what’s waiting for them on the other side?

Of course, none of this should surprise anyone when you consider some of the other moronic ideas the Donald had while serving as president. For example:

And now we can add cows traversing ladders. The idiocy has no bottom with Donald Trump.


Congress GOP Immigration WTF?!

Marjorie Taylor Greene: The US Is Unsafe For Migrants Because We Have So Many ‘Natural Disasters’

According to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), immigrants fleeing their home country due to climate change need to stay where they are because the United States has so many natural disasters that it might wind up being more dangerous than the nation they came from.

At a hearing of the House Border Security and Enforcement Subcommittee, Greene was in full dumbass mode as she told Department of Homeland Security official Blas Nuñez-Neto, “Right here, it says that you say the reason why people are coming to America today is because of violence, food insecurity, severe poverty, corruption, climate change, and the COVID-19 pandemic. So we have homelessness here in America. Natural disasters, talk about climate change. This is the fourth largest country in the world. We have an extremely diverse climate. We have a wide range of natural disasters.”

“97 natural disasters occurred in 2021,” Greene added. “I don’t think this is very safe for migrants here in America. We had 97. How many are they having in their country?”

Greene then went on to name the sorts of disasters to be found in the U.S.

“Wildfires, heat waves, droughts, flash floods, winter storms, cold waves, tropical cyclones, and on and on and on.”

“But yet they need to come to our country because of climate change?” she asked. “It’s not a safe country either, by the way. In America, there were 1,313,000 violent crimes in the US, and that was in 2020.”

Well, damn, Marge! If things are so freaking dangerous in the United States, when you are planning to pack up your shit and move? They say Russia is lovely this time of year, provided you don’t dare say something negative about Putin and wind up “jumping” from a 10-story building.

Just when you think Margie can’t possibly get more bigoted or more ignorant, she opens her mouth yet again and proves otherwise.

Here’s the video:


Congress GOP Immigration

Lauren Boebert Just Proved She Has Absolutely No Idea How Time Works

Colorado Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert has never been the sharpest knife in the proverbial drawer, but something she tweeted out Monday afternoon regarding the situation on the U.S.-Mexico border is now making some wonder if she can even understand how time works.

The subject of Boebert’s tweet was the so-called “surge” taking place at the border since Title 42 ended last week.

Has there been a massive influx of migrants since the policy ended? No. There hasn’t.

The Hill reports:

According to the most recent figures released Monday, the number of encounters at the border fell by about 50 percent in the first three days after Title 42 was abandoned 

Whereas the daily number of such encounters had been predicted to reach somewhere in the ballpark of 13,000, it instead came in around 5,000. There were few scenes of disorder or chaos. 

And yet, Boebert tweeted out this:

Just how stupid is Boebert? Is she unable to read a chart? Or is the congresswoman so mentally challenged that she cannot even understand last week versus this week?

Twitter users were only too happy to answer that question and also mock Boebert for her lack of comprehension.
