Army stands ready to build wall when Trump declares national emergency

Tonight, at 9 p.m. EST, President Trump will speak to America about security along our border with Mexico. Trump will follow his speech with a visit to the border on Thursday.

Vice President Pence said the national address is due to congressional Demonrats’ refusal to even negotiate on funds for border wall construction, which would end the partial (25%) federal government shut-down that began December 22. President Trump asks for $5.7 billion for construction of a steel border wall.

Note that the first order of business of the House Democrats was to pass bills to fund hundreds of millions of dollars for abortion by Planned Parenthood ($100 million), international NGOs ($500 million), and the UN Population Fund ($37.5 million).

A new Economist/YouGov survey, conducted Dec. 30-Jan. 1, found that:

  • A vast majority (86%) of Americans say illegal immigration is a problem, including 97% of Republicans, 82% of independents, and 83% of Democrats.
  • Only 7% of Americans think illegal immigration is “not a problem”, including 2% of Republicans, 7% of independents, and 12% of Democrats.
  • The remaining 6% of Americans are not sure if illegal immigration is a problem or not.

It is expected that in his national address, President Trump will declare a national emergency to build and pay for the wall. Indeed, border insecurity is a national emergency:

  • In fiscal 2017, as many as 3,755 known or suspected terrorists entered the U.S.
  • In fiscal 2018, which ended on Sept. 30, at the southern border:
    • Customs and Border Protection agents caught 17,000 adults who had criminal records.
    • Immigration and Customs Enforcement apprehended 6,000 members of gangs, including the violent MS-13.
    • A 73% increase in fentanyl, one of the deadliest drugs, totaling 2,400 pounds.
    • A 38% increase in methamphetamine.
    • A 38% increase in heroin.
    • 50 migrants a day required medical treatment.
    • 31% of female migrants said they were sexually assaulted on the journey to the U.S. (The Daily Signal)

And when/if President Trump declares border security is a national emergency, the U.S. Army will be the primary contractor to build the wall.

InfoWars reports that two days ago, on Sunday, January 6, the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) sent a letter to Democratic House committee chairs, informing them that the Customs and Border Protection agency is coordinating with the army to fulfill President Trump’s goal of securing the border with a steel wall.

The letter also says that President Trump’s request for $5.7 billion would fund construction of approximately 234 miles of a steel border wall, and several other areas pertaining to border security, including more border patrol personnel, humanitarian supplies, and technology resources. (Read the letter on ScribD, here.)

Yesterday, a White House official said, “If the president declares a national emergency, the Army Corps of Engineers will kick into high gear. They’re already handing out contracts, and that would speed up a lot.”

In fact, the Army Corps of Engineers had begun soliciting bids in mid-2017 for companies to produce “a mix of border fence, border wall, border patrol roads, border access roads, border lights, border gates (for access to border monuments, for maintenance, and for Border Patrol operational use), border drainage improvements, levee walls, and other miscellaneous improvements, repairs, and alterations.” (Daily Mail)

9/11: Elementary school Bush visited recited ‘hit, steel, plane, must’; Army general said no plane hit the Pentagon

“The greatest charity one can do to another is to lead him to the truth.” -St. Thomas Aquinas

On that fateful day, September 11, 2001, President George W. Bush was visiting a reading class at the Emma E. Booker Elementary School in Sarasota, Florida, right before his aide whispered in his ear that a second plane had hit the World Trade Center.

This was the exercise the teacher, Mrs. Daniels, had the students do, pointing to words written on a sheet of paper tacked to the blackboard (beginning at the 0:38 mark):

Teacher: “Let’s read these words as fastly without stopping without mistake. Get ready!” — teacher points at a word.

Students: “Kite”

Teacher: “Yes, kite. Get ready!”

Students: “Hit”

Teacher: “Yes, hit. Get ready!”

Students: “Steel”

Teacher: “Yes, steel. Get ready!”

Students: “Plane”

Teacher: “Yes, plane. Get ready!”

Sttudents: “Must”

Teacher: “Yes, must.”

The teacher then instructs the students to open their books, when Bush’s chief of staff Andy Card walks in, bends down and whispers in his ear . . . .

Albert Stubblebine III (February 6, 1930 – February 6, 2017) was a United States Army major general whose active duty career spanned 32 years. Beginning as an armor officer, he later transferred to intelligence. He is credited with redesigning the U.S. Army intelligence architecture during his time ascommanding general of the U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM) from 1981 to 1984, after which he retired from active service.

In this next video, General Stubblebine is interviewed by a reporter for German NuoViso TV (1:27 mark):

Reporter: “So on September 11, 2001, what hit the Pentagon?”

Stubblebine: “I don’t know what exactly hit it. But I do know from the photographs that I have analyzed and looked at very, very carefully, it was not an airplane.”

Reporter: “What makes you believe that?”

Stubblebine: “Well, for one thing, if you look at the hole that was made in the Pentagon, the nose penetrated far enough so that there should have been wing marks on the walls of the Pentagon. I have been unable to find those wing marks. So where were they? Did this vessel, vehicle, or whatever it was have wings? Apparently not, because if it had wings, they would have made marks on the side of the Pentagon. One person counteracted my theory and said, ‘Oh, you got it all wrong. And the reason that it’s wrong is that as the airplane came across, one wing tipped down and hit the ground and broke off.’ I said fine, that’s possible, one wing could have broken off. But if I understand airplanes correctly, most airplanes have two wings. I haven’t met an airplane with only one wing. So where was the mark for the second wing? Okay, one broke off; there should have been a mark for the second wing. I could not find that in any of the photographs that I’ve analyzed. Now I’ve been very careful to not say what went in there. Why? Because I don’t have that evidence.

I’ve never believed it was an airplane since I’d looked at the photographs. Up until that time I looked at the photographs, I accepted what was being said. After I looked at it, no way. We pride ourselves with the free press. I do not believe the free press is free anymore. It’s very expensive, it’s very expensive, and the press is saying what they have been told to say about this. Now, do I have proof of that? No. But I believe . . . the stories that we’re told all about 9/11 were false. I mean you take a look at the buildings falling down. They didn’t fall down because airplanes hit them; they fell down because explosives went off inside — demolition. Look at Building 7 for God’s sakes. It didn’t fall down to its side; it didn’t fall this direction or that direction. Just like the two towers. When you look at the temperatures that you can create with fuel in a gas tank or fuel tank of an airplane, and then uou investigate the amount of heat that would be required to melt, to melt the superstructure of the buildings that came tumbling down, when you put all of that together, the one thing that shows, it does not match the facts. What is it they do not want the public to know?”

Triple-amputee veteran creates GoFundMe fundraiser for border wall

President Ronald Reagan famously said “Trust, but verify” — a Russian proverb — at the signing of the nuclear disarmament Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty with the Soviet Union on December 8, 1987.

This post is an effort at “trust, but verify”.

Four days ago on December 16, 2018, a triple-amputee Iraq War veteran named Brian Kolfage created a GoFundMe for donations toward construction of the US-Mexico border wall that has stymied Congress and Trump, although Trump’s State Department manages to give away $10.6 billion in aid to southern Mexico and $5.8 billion in aid to Central America from whence came the invading migrant “caravans” (Daily Wire).

Kolfage’s #GoFundTheWall fundraiser has already garnered more than $5.8 million from more than 96,000 people toward its goal of $1 billion.

Here is a FoxNews story on Kolfage and the fundraiser: https://www.foxnews.com/politics/veteran-launches-gofundme-campaign-to-help-fund-border-wall.print

Pic of Brian Kolfage with family from Facebook

Kolfage writes on GoFundMe:

My name is Brian Kolfage, I have a verified blue check facebook page as a public figure and I’m a Purple Heart Recipient triple amputee veteran.

The government has accepted large private donations before, most recently a billionaire donated $7.5 Million  to fund half of the Washington Monument repairs in 2012; this is no different.

Like a  majority of those American citizens who voted to elect President Donald J Trump, we voted for him to Make America Great Again. President Trump’s main campaign promise was to BUILD THE WALL. And as he’s followed through on just about every promise so far, this wall project needs to be completed still.

As a veteran who has given so much, 3 limbs, I feel deeply invested to this nation to ensure future generations have everything we have today. Too many Americans have been murdered by illegal aliens and too many illegals are taking advantage of  the United States taxpayers with no means of ever contributing to our society.

I have grandparents who immigrated to America legally, they did it the correct way and it’s time we uphold our laws, and get this wall BUILT! It’s up to Americans to help out and pitch in to get this project rolling.

If the 63 million people who voted for Trump each pledge $80, we can build the wall. That equates to roughly 5 Billion Dollars, even if we get half, that’s half the wall. We can do this.

Democrats are going to stall this project by every means possible and play political games to ensure President Trump doesn’t get his victor. They’d rather see President Trump fail, than see America succeed.  However, if we can fund a large portion of this wall, it will jumpstart things and will be less money Trump has to secure from our politicians.

This won’t be easy, but it’s our duty as citizens. This needs to be shared every single day by each of you on social media. We can do it, and we can help President Trump make America safe again!

How do you know this is not a scam? I’m using my real name, my real information, you can contact me and hold me accountable. People who try to scam you will not be upfront with their information, they will hide and not use their name. I have a public figure Facebook page with a blue check  mark issued by facebook that verifies my identity.  I’m a retired United States Air Force member who was wounded in Iraq, and lost 3 limbs. I have a website BrianKolfage.com where you can verify more about me.  I will respond. I’ve been on Fox News many times, you can see I’m credible and a real person. The Gary Sinise Foundation also built me and my family a home. Do your research before donating, and contact me if you have any questions.

• How will we get the funds to the right place? We have contacted the Trump Administration to secure a point of contact where all the funds will go upon completion. When we get this information secured we will update. We have many very high level contacts already helping.

• Republican Representative Steven Palazzo of Mississippi is introducing legislation to direct the Treasury Department to issue government savings bonds which would allow us to fund the wall with this method. This is just one option, there are others on the table being discussed.

100% of your donations will go to the Trump Wall.

We are working with a law firm on a legal document that will bind the government to using the funds for the border wall itself, nothing else.

We will hold all funds and not release a single penny until we have all legal aspects covered to ensure our money goes only to the wall.

• If we don’t reach our goal or come significantly close we will refund every single penny.  We are working on a time frame to achieve.

LET’S GET THIS WALL BUILT! And make America Safe Again!

Brian Kolfage 
4833 Front St. Unit B-158
Castle Rock, CO 80104

4833 Front St. is a strip mall of various businesses; Unit B-158 is most likely a UPS Store.

Confusingly, the GoFundMe site has another location for Kolfage — Miramar, FL. Below is a screenshot of the page.

As poster draaaak of Voat points out, Miramar is in Florida’s very blue Broward County.

So I conducted a people search for “Brian Kolfage”. Below are the results:

(1) According to Spokeo, there is no Brian Kolfage in all of U.S.A.

(2) According to TruthFinder, there is no Brian Kolfage in Miramar, Florida, or anywhere in Florida.

(3) Nor is there a Brian Kolfage in Castle Rock, CO, or anywhere in Colorado:

(4) According to TruthFinder, there are only two individuals by the name of Brian Kolfage in all of U.S.A.:

Brian Gregory Kolfage, 65, was born in 1953; lives in and owns a modest home in Dearborn Heights, Michigan; has a business in Dearborn Heights — Professional Home Care; has a LinkedIn profile that is, however, “unavailable”.

According to Manta:

Professional Home Health Care is a privately held company in Dearborn Heights, MI and is a Single Location business.

Brian G. Kolfage, 37, was born in 1981; lives in Farmington Hills, Michigan, and has lived in Dearborn Heights, MI (in 2000); Miramar Beach, FL; Mulberry, FL; San Angelo, TX; Tucson, AZ; and Honolulu, HI. His business and employment history are listed as the same as 65-year-old Brian Gregory Kolfage — Professional Home Care in Dearborn Heights. The Facebook page identified with 37-year-old Brian G. Kolfage is a joint account he has with his wife, Ashley. Pictures on that Facebook page show this is the GoFundMe Brian Kolfage.

65-year-old Brian Gregory Kolfage must be the father of 37-year-old Brian G. Kolfage. Their towns of residence, Dearborn Heights and Farmington Hills, are only 12 miles apart.

I don’t know why Brian Kolfage gives two locations/addresses on GoFundMe (Miramar, FL and Castle Rock, CO), neither of which is his actual residence (for security reasons?). Other than that, he appears to be legit, although I would have more confidence if he already had a “legal document” instead of just “working” with a law firm on one, which would ensure that “100% of your donations will go to the Trump Wall”.

Delusional: Jesse Venture says “Trump will not have a chance” if I run for president

Jesse Ventura: A legend in his own mind/Instagram photo

This douche bag won’t get many votes from the military and patriotic citizens.

From Fox News: Jesse Ventura is considering running against President Donald Trump in 2020 — and the former pro wrestler is confident he can deliver a DDT to DJT in the election.

“I haven’t made a decision yet because it’s a long time off, but if I do do it, rest assured … If I do do it, Trump will not have a chance,” Ventura, 67, told TMZ on Tuesday. “Because for one, Trump knows wrestling — he’s participated in two WrestleManias. He knows he can never out-talk a wrestler, and I am the greatest talker wrestling’s ever had. So if I go for it, he’s history and he knows it.”

As for the former Minnesota governor’s platform, “The Body” says, “I’m big into cannabis legalization, I’m also into alternative energy, big. We gotta get away from fossil fuels, we gotta go to the sun [for energy]. It’s time. The Greens have shown some interest.”

Ventura is also pondering a return to the ring for WrestleMania, which is returning to Minneapolis for 2019.

Flaunting his six-pack, the former WWE star boasted, “I’m 220 pounds, I’m in fighting shape.”

Trump: Close southern border; troops to use lethal force

Here’s the latest “migrant caravan” invasion news:

(1) The first wave of thousands of “caravan migrants” has arrived at America’s southern border. Among them were some 350 people who arrived in nine buses in the border city of Tijuana, Mexico. As you can see in the pic below, some of them were carrying the Guatemalan and Mexican flags. (USA Today)

(2) Wonder of wonders, LGBT freaks are the first to reach the Tijuana border! (Washington Post)

(3) The Trump administration is hardening the Tijuana border in preparation for the invasion. Customs and Border Protection announced it was closing four lanes at the busy San Ysidro and Otay Mesa ports of entry in San Diego, California so as “to install and pre-position port hardening infrastructure equipment in preparation for the migrant caravan and the potential safety and security risk that it could cause.” However, 23 lanes remain open at San Ysidro and 12 at Otay Mesa. San Ysidro is the border’s busiest crossing, with about 110,000 people entering the U.S. every day. (AP)

(4) Tijuana mayor and residents reject the “caravan migrants”:

Tijuana Mayor Juan Manuel Gastelum correctly calls the invaders — whom the U.S. Hate America Media (HAM) call “migrants” and “caravans” — a “horde,” an “avalanche” and a “tsunami.”

On Sunday, Tijuana residents waved Mexican flags, sang the Mexican national anthem and chanted “Out! Out!” in front of a statue of the Aztec ruler Cuauhtemoc, 1 mile (1.6 kilometers) from the U.S. border. They called the migrants messy, ungrateful, “a danger” to their city, and an “invasion”, and voiced worries that their taxes might be spent to care for the invaders.

There were public clashes between Tijuana residents and the Central American “migrants”. At least three people were injured, all of whom were journalists. (New York Post)

In the past week, Tijuana officials have arrested three dozen “caravan” members for drug possession, public intoxication, disturbing the peace and resisting police, and said they would be deported to their home countries.

(5) On November 8, 2018, invoking the President’s national security powers to protect the United States against threats from abroad, the Trump administration announced new immigration rules giving President Trump new authority to deny asylum to “migrants” who illegally cross the border. No one could apply for asylum except at an official border entry point.

On November 19, however, U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar in San Francisco, an Obama appointee, put the administration’s asylum policy on hold. Tigar ruled that President Trump “may not rewrite the immigration laws to impose a condition that Congress has expressly forbidden.” Tigar’s order will remain in effect until Dec. 19, when the court will consider arguments for a permanent ban. (Politico)

In 2015, in a first-of-its-kind ruling for the state of California, Tigar ruled that the state must pay for an inmate’s gender realignment surgery because denying “her” that surgery violates “her” constitutional rights.

So President Trump threatened to close America’s entire southern border for an undisclosed period of time if his administration determines that Mexico has lost “control” on its side. He said that if U.S. officials “find that it’s uncontrollable, if we find that it gets to a level where we are going to lose control or where people are going to start getting hurt, we will close entry into the country for a period of time until we can get it under control. The whole border. We’re either going to have a border or we’re not.” (Foxnews)

(6) President Trump also said he has given the thousands of active-duty troops sent to the border the “OK” to use lethal force against illegal border-crossers “if they have to.”

Citing DHS Secretary Nielsen who had said there are as many as 500 criminals and gang members in the “caravan” heading northward, Trump said there are “fistfights all over the streets” in Tijuana, Mexico, and that “these are not like normal, innocent people. These are people you talk to them and they start a fistfight. I don’t want that in this country.”

Indeed, the Military Times reports that on Tuesday, November 20, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly signed a “Cabinet order” expanding the authority of troops at the border to include “a show or use of force (including lethal force, where necessary), crowd control, temporary detention, and cursory search” in order to protect border agents.

Before this, the Pentagon had rejected requests for troops to provide crowd and traffic control and protection for agents. Troop activities at the border have been largely restrained due to the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878, which prohibits the military from acting as law enforcement on U.S. soil, except in cases and under circumstances authorized explicitly by the Constitution or Congress. But defense officials told the Military Times that the language in Kelly’s order “was carefully crafted to avoid running up against the bedrock legal limitations set in Posse Comitatus.”

On Wednesday, November 21, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said that the White House had given him explicit authority to use military troops to protect Customs and Border Protection personnel at the southwest border, with lethal force if necessary. But he was adamant the military would remain within its legal limits.  Generally, U.S. troops are authorized to use force in self-defense.
