Emperor Donald's Welcome Wall: Smugglers helping migrants scale Trump’s border wall ‘using $5 ladders’

Mod: Emperor Donald's mightiest of walls apparently can be easily defeated by using inexpensive and very simple technology. Of course, red hats won't believe it. They can barely get up from their sofas, much less cut their own lawns.

Smugglers helping migrants scale Trump’s border wall ‘using $5 ladders’ (Yahoo! News link): Smugglers are reportedly helping migrants scale sections of Donald Trump’s multi-billion border wall using $5 ladders. US Border Patrol has seen a rise in camouflage “hook-and-ladders” within the far south-west region of Texas since May last year, according to The El Paso Times.

El Paso’s urban stretch of border is said to be littered with the ladders, which are engineered out of rebar and match the rust brown colours of the wall.

“Somebody is making money off those ladders,” agent Joe Romero told the newspaper. “The agents pulled it off the wall and cut it up so it can’t be used again.” The rebar ladders began appearing in large numbers once construction of a replacement wall in El Paso was finished last May. According to Border Patrol, illegal crossings have increased ever since.

“We’re starting to see a lot of evading activity,” said Agent Ramiro Cordero. “We’re starting to see the criminal organisations working hand-to-hand on either side to avoid detection. More and more we are seeing ‘failure to yields’ — they are utilising ladders to go over the fence and diversionary tactics.”

Border Patrol apprehensions of single adults — those most likely to use the ladder method — have nearly doubled in the El Paso sector. From October 2019 through January 2020, Border Patrol apprehended 10,030 adults, compared with 5,150 in the same period a year ago.

  3. BWAHAHA! MAGAts ENRAGED as Fox cuts to commercial during Trump's Daytona speech.

    https://www.rawstory.com/2020/02/communist-fox-network-angers-trump-fans-at-daytona-500-by-cutting-to-commercial-as-he-begins-speech/

    The FOX broadcast network seemingly snubbed the president of the United States on Sunday when it cut to commercial while he was speaking.

    Viewers complained on Twitter that FOX Sports cut away prior to President Donald Trump’s campaign-style speech at the Daytona 500, where he was named grand marshal.

    FOX’s cameras were also criticized for cutting away from Trump’s lap at the Daytona 500 in his presidential limo. Instead, fans were treated to a commercial from Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg.

    Some viewers praised the network for not giving the president’s 2020 campaign additional publicity.

  4. The reality on this wall thing is the choice was "which contractor has given me the biggest campaign contribution... or promised kickback"

  5. Trump campaign manager deletes dramatic Air Force One photo after people point out it's from 2004

    https://www.cnn.com/2020/02/16/politics/parscale-tweet-daytona-500-air-force-one-photo/index.html

    President Donald Trump's campaign manager deleted a tweet featuring a dramatic photo of Air Force One at the Daytona 500 after users pointed out that the shot was from President George W. Bush's visit to the NASCAR race in 2004, not from Trump's visit on Sunday.

    Brad Parscale tweeted the 2004 photo, which shows Air Force One rising above packed stands at the Daytona International Speedway in Florida, and wrote, ".@realDonaldTrump won the #Daytona500 before the race even started."

    The tweet stayed online for about three hours, drawing at least 6,700 retweets and 23,000 likes before it was deleted. Users identifying themselves as Trump supporters replied with messages like "Amazing shot wow" and "WOW WHAT A SHOT!!!!!!!!!"

    But the photo was taken by photographer Jonathan Ferrey on February 15, 2004, after Bush's visit to the racetrack, as Air Force One took off from the adjacent Daytona Beach International Airport. It can be found on the website of Getty Images, and it could be found in articles in the past week previewing Trump's visit.

  9. ‘America — y’all gotta wake up’: MSNBC panel cracks up laughing at Trump bizarre claims about the border wall

    Last month, President Donald Trump’s border wall collapsed due to weather problems. A new decision was made that in certain areas, Trump’s wall must be a kind of “gate” that will remain open during months known for heavy flooding.

    After weeks of ignoring the news, Trump finally found something to say about the catastrophe during a press conference where he rambled about different ways that people have tried to get drugs over the wall using a sling-shot.
