Great idea, Henry.

You could sell a Silver Membership allowing you to watch.

And a Gold Membership letting you pull the trigger.

Old Lurker

Hey...we could also place signs on them like counties do for cleaning roadsides "Adopt-a-Sentry: This Sentry Gun is brought to you by AJAX Construction Company".

That might pay for the whole wall.

Trump met a guy who knows a guy whose cousin's cleaning lady told him that her sister was only a legal permanent resident and was still able to vote in....something or other-she can't remember what- but still.

5 million people illegally voted in the last election because if this friend's cousin's cleaning lady's sister could vote in...something....then it's evidence of widespread voter fraud...fraud in the region of between 12 and 5 million.


Ladies and gentlemen......the Republicans are back in power.

Looking at the list of countries that currently use them, I wonder what the Canadians are using those sentry guns for?

PD

I have a distinct recollection of Trump during one of the debates, ( I think it was one of the latter primaries) using the word, "bigly." He was trying to come up with an adverbial form of big.

That may be, and I have no reason to doubt you. Still, when I hear him speak and use the phrase, it sounds to me like "big league."

I agree "bigly" is more fun, of course.

"Several members of the Brock empire painfully recall what they viewed as self-aggrandizing, exuberant episodes involving their boss. One such memory took place at a Christmas party in 2015 at the Comet Ping Pong pizza joint (of “#Pizzagate” infamy) in Washington, D.C. There, staffers recall, Brock at one point climbed atop the restaurant’s bar to deliver a fired-up speech. As Brock approached the finale of his remarks, the DJ started blasting Queen’s stadium-rock anthem, “We Are The Champions.”

As Brock’s acolytes in the crowd looked on and cheered wildly, various staffers began glancing at one another, raising eyebrows and chuckling about yet another moment that read to them as their fearless leader caring only about perceived power and popularity."

Good link, Tbt. Dems find themselves stuck with a self-proclaimed Moses they don't like, who's dedicated to leading them out of the wilderness by supporting third-party candidates.

should be DOJ corruption.

Retreat is a good thing.
We need a concrete unified strategy going forward.
All cabinet positions will be filled in about 3 weeks time.
Good possible picks for SC.
Dems wouldnt be so upset about voter fraud investigation if they didn't know for certain that it exists highly.
John Fund has written an entire book on it.
Absentee ballots are the most vulnerable.
Harder to do than at polling places.
I processed about 75 provisional ballots on Election Day and updated people's registration.
Only people turned away were those at the wrong site and they were given printed out directions to the correct voting location.

Old Lurker

Maryrose "Retreat is a good thing.

Agree except as to the timing.

Why not retreat right after they were sworn in in early January? Why not retreat in December? Why not create the impression that just as the country elected a new President intent on getting things done, the Congress might pretend at least to want the same thing, and "yesterday" as opposed to "some day far far in the future after you have given us even more power next time?"

You are WAY too forgiving, Maryrose.

James D

Ig's Continetti link links to a Daniel Drezner piece at the Bezos Daily Worker. And that article is just mind-blowingly stupid.

This is an example:

The bipartisan approach to China for the past 30 years has been to do everything possible to get Beijing to want to preserve the global rules of the game, as designed by the United States. China has not always complied in practice, but it has mostly done so in its rhetoric. The final outcome of this approach is a cruel irony: As America turns inward, the rest of the world turns to China.

It's just crap on toast, from the first word to the last. Drezner is a moron, regardless of how many degrees he has, how many people follow his blatherings, or who pays him to write and to teach.

If he's an example of an "intellectual" and an "expert" we can just behead the lot of them and start over with no loss to society at all.

The last time the party of stoopid had a retreat they came away stating that, despite Eric Cantor's loss in the primary and R$'s defeat in the general, the voters really wanted comprehensive immigration reform.

You can't fix that level of cluelessness.

Old Lurker

WMAL just reported that the Dem Congressional Motorcade speeding to its own retreat in WV, using motorcycle cops to wave traffic to the side so they could speed by like the Politboro racing to their dachas, caused a multi car pileup (of regular people) with fatalities.

HATEFUL EIGHT.

Put the wall on our credit card. Treat it like a Social Security Promissory Note and write it off permanently.

Magical fiscal misdirection.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Old Lurker,

Seems like a real world metaphor for how the democrats operate in everything they do.

Full speed ahead, ignore the consequences, no matter how many people we hurt.

Jack is Back!

OL,

If Hillary had been elected then they would have held the "retreat" once the new Congress came in session. But with Trump they had to wait until the inauguration. At least, I think that is the timing issue. Plus why wait 2 or weeks? Everyone in a unified government needs to synch their priorties and the public's business to come.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Old Lurker,

Furthermore, I bet they blame it on the cops.

HATEFUL EIGHT.

Ignatz found the conundrum.

You can't play footsie with China and Russia contemporaneously.

To recep:

Meetin scheduled for next week with Pena.

Trump tweets that we have a huge imbalance in trade so maybe they should go ahead and cancel if they're unwilling to pay for the wall.

Now Mexico says cancelling would be bad.

Posted by: HATEFUL EIGHT. | January 26, 2017 at 10:58 AM

good grief.

illegal immigration costs the US and states tens of billions of dollars annually. even if the wall squelched a small percent of the problem (and it would most likely be the most problematic part) it would pay for itself over time.

Appalled

The GOP retreating early in January may have handed Obama a recess appointment to the Supremes.

Dave (in MA)

Why do these assholes (both parties) need to have remote retreats? Apparently there are no facilities with conference rooms in D.C.

henry

It sure sounds like there was some precipitating event.

from the State Department top guys quit thing. Maybe Tillerson asked if they had personal emails for govt business.

HATEFUL EIGHT.

BoE: Truly, your face-to-face assessment of the inarticulate one has been spot-on..lol

Old Lurker

Too bad more of them didn't resign at the same time.

I would start with the assumption that every single employee of State is a danger to keep and then look for the exceptions rather than the other way around.

Comanche Voter

Was there vote fraud in even one single voting precinct in the whole USA? The Dems say no.
The several different precincts in black Detroit where more votes were cast and counted than there were registered voters in the precinct say yes.

Under our current loose system, there is going to be vote fraud--plain and simple. Whether it is as bad as Trump suggests, or as nonexistent as the Dems suggest (after all a vote from a deceased Democrat still counts) is an open question.

The scandal in Washington state a few years back where Christine Gregoire (D) finally prevailed on the fourth or fifth recount against Dino Rossi (R) for governor comes to mind. Ms. Gregoire was forty or fifty thousand votes shy of winning on the first count. The voter registrar in King County (Seattle) kept "finding" previously uncounted boxes stuffed
full of Democrat votes in the basement of their office. Didn't find enough on the first recount, found some more boxes on the next recount, and so it went until they had finally pushed Ms. Gregoire over the top.


There is also a distinct odor of fraud in getting Senator Al Franken (Looney-Tunes) elected via multiple recounts in Minnesota.

One could go on--but you get the picture.

Old Lurker

Appalled at 11:36 makes a very good point.

Accepted.

So why not last December?

HATEFUL EIGHT.

IT PAYS FOR ITSELF...

Maybe we could use Iraq oil to pay for it...lol.

the generallyistic deplorable rich

ha JamesD. clever.

I was making a big deal about it but no one else seemed to care. Kinda of weird to see Xi headlining the Money Oscars when no one there would willing invest their fortunes there.

The devil you know and all that I guess.

and re: McGuffin ... I'm getting the stench of saudi on him. It wouldn't surprise me in the least actually.

Captain Hate

Old Lurker

Dave, the Trump Hotel has HUGE meeting rooms.

the generallyistic deplorable rich

yeah I'm pretty sure a line item in a 3.8 TRILLION dollar budget is going to be the back breaker. just that one thing.

lets not build a billion dollar wall because it costs so much, but tolerate tens of billions in other spending because Mexico needs its welfare state ...

... perfect sense.

Nobama, oh Mama.

Mebbe because of the year long term. I dunno, tho. There are many things, particularly to do with the Clintons that he did less than I expected.

Left a lot hanging. Typical.

HATEFUL EIGHT.

Cost estimates $25 B? Get real.

100 to 250 billion depending on our credit card interest.

Just cancel a couple of F35s.

Regnuable.

Heh, rich, I mentioned somewhere, mebbe here, that Xi was hoping to persuade the DavosVolk into continuing funding of his green industry. I hope they were sufficiently persuaded.

the generallyistic deplorable rich

delusional. JiB has probably built some walls before so we can get an expert opinion.

DebinNC

The State Dept. holdover who wanted to keep his job, Patrick F. Kennedy: "The Republican minority on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence has alleged that Kennedy, as Under Secretary for Management, failed to approve requests for additional security in Benghazi and Tripoli, and failed to implement recommendations regarding high-risk diplomatic posts that had been issued after the bombings of embassies in 1998" ... Good riddance to him and his 3 State Dept. underlings leaving with him.

I don't recall seeing your comment at the time, but he did make a big deal of climate change. Like any good con man tell your marks what they want to hear. Also emphasized the point they would not devalue ... a challenge accepted moment for the more aggressive currency traders I think.

It would be cheaper and more humane if we built the wall with deceased illegals..

Do a King Leonidas on 'em.

Dave (in MA)

Looks like little has a new sock.

Jack is Back!

OL & Appalled,

That was my point. If Hillary had been elected they could meet once Congress was in session. So what if Obama made a recess appointment? Hillary would just go ahead and make it permanent later on.

the generallyistic deplorable rich

25B @7.5% pencils out to 173 million a month for 360 months ... or a sum of payments 62.5B after 30 years.

Old Lurker

The savings from cutting UN payments 40% alone will pay for the wall.

Works for me.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Surely a vast government, shovel-ready infrastructure project is just the thing to stimulate the economy and create millions of new jobs through the magical Dr Keynes multiplier effect.
Then when the wall is done and the labor laid off the economy will be heated to a glowing cherry red by the Dr Pelosi unemployment multiplier.

Old Lurker

Thanks JiB. I missed that nuance in your post.

XERXES COST FREE WALL

It's a win/win ain't it Ignatz?

Old Lurker

And anyway, the whole problem with looking at numbers through a DC lens is that they look at the cost of the wall absent any look at the benefits thereof. Just looking at numbers, I wonder what the long term economic value of having a controlled infusion of foreigners, as opposed to open floodgates, might be over thirty years, net-net-net?

XERXES COST FREE WALL

It's a free wall built with OPM.

the generallyistic deplorable rich

tap,tap,tap ... is this thing on?

/flop sweat

JMHanes

"Precipitating event?" LOL. Like reading in the WaPo that Team Trump is going to fire you? Good news indeed. The folks at State are the ones that ran interference for Hillary every step of the way -- and watched while Bill & Clinton Inc. sucked up international dough without a peep. Drain 'em all.

Drain the DoJ bigly, too, Clarice. The monsters weren't at Blackwater! We need to put a stake in the heart of the non-partisan "career professional" myth.

Now back to packing....

Miss Marple the Deplorable

How much do we pay for EBT cards for illegals? Medicaid? Federal aid to overcrowded schools>

How much do we pay for law enforcement? How much for damage to health and property due to drugs brought in?

Trump is looking at both costs and benefits. Seems like it would be a net plus to me.

Mebbe both in many ways.

Agree rich about climate change and marks; and interesting that other given the increasing governmental risk there is in the Chinese currency. Wonder whether George is short or long?

XERXES COST FREE WALL

You build the wall with the taxpayer revenue you have, and what they don't have...then just get more of what they don't have.

There's a book of stories, of course, so you don't need the Disney movie to get the reference. But the movie has many warm moments and gives a historically accurate picture of a point in time.

Jack is Back!

rich,

I gave an estimate a few days back on another thread.

First, need to design it. Different soils, topography and intrusion systems. Also, need to make it tunnel proof or very difficult. Sheet piling, maybe tie back walls etc.

Second, need to get all the planning permissions, right of way (lot of the real estate is private), no unlike doing a pipeline or highway. Even the Feds have to do an environmental impact study unless Trump EO's al that away.

Then you can start procurement and construction. There is lot of wall in place now may need to upgrade it, install int.rusion detection etc. Depending on design, you could modularize it, off site and save some field labor costs.

I am more interested in the design right now and technical details for preventing tunneling.

In any event you can split up the construction by area. 200 mile segments. Run it like a pipeline - sequential construction.

Epaminondas.

Y'all be careful how you step in the middle o' dem pies.

neither would be my guess (much "easier" to try to break the HK dollar peg and safer too). He did feature in a chapter in Unrestricted Warfare though (his and the west's actions generally during the Asian Financial Crisis).


Old Lurker

Make it a great American race, JiB. Award 100 mile sections to ten contractors at the same time. Award the next ten 100 mile sections to the best (quality, cost, speed) five from the first bunch. Rinse and repeat.
