The emergency is the noxious, demonic presidency of Donald Trump


Maybe you'll have better luck in 2020 than you did in 2016.

In the meantime, an update: twitter.com...

The wall worked for the Chinese and Turkey. What about all those Castles with Moats?


In the 16th century they didn't have drones that could deliver a pizza, past the walls and moats and right into the exiled princess's tower window!

The Great Wall of China could have been designed to keep citizens in, as much as invaders out. China has historically been a series of very repressive regimes.

Well working along that logical train of thought, which could quite possibly be the case, Trump better hope Yellowstone never goes pop.

Then again if that happens is probably more than just the greater part of the united states that will pay the cost.

Illegal crossings are at an all time low. If it wasn't a national emergency when the numbers were higher I doubt it will be found so now.

The wall will stop people. I am against illegal immigration, drugs, child trafficking, slavery, murder, kidnapping and skipping on income tax. So why are you so hung up on a wall? What is your fix and Master Plan. I may agree with it. The financial breakeven payback for $5 Billion would be less than one year.

It may stop some desperate asylum seekers, but it won't stop terrorist or cartels or VISA overstayers. It won't stop corporations from hiring undocumented workers.

It's only a matter of time before a WMD is slipped across the border.


The southern border is the prime place to do it, because they can blend in better with the local population.



Because Canadians and Americans are so easy to tell apart??????

Don't think God has much to say at all where nonsensical walls are concerned, aside from The wall of Jericho, and look how that turned out.

I think its safe to assume the big dude don't like walls much.

Then why did He talk about it so much?

"wall"
occurs 179 times in 163 verses in the KJV.

Congress decides, not the president, as you are currently seeing, no matter if you "doubt" it or not.

Well, it's unrealistic, but the fix needs to come from the top. There is no "fix" in blaming desperate asylum seekers for the problems they're fleeing from. If the government doesn't want drugs flowing freely, it should stop covertly supporting the cartels and taking their kick back money. If the government is so concerned about how illegals hurt the economy, they should start arresting the employers hiring them. If the government doesn't want refugees pounding on our doors, hey should stop funding rebels and inciting coups.

Simplistic, unrealistic and idealistic, I know.

How did the wall work for the Chinese? LoL

It seems to have worked well... it was in operation for about 1000 years.


For a while like but i think the Mongols kicked there arse a few times, it also did not stop people per-say but armed invasion forces.

It was also used for border control, immigration control, and trade regulation.

As for the Mongols? If they "kicked China's arse" why is there still a China?

Or say terrorist pretending to be caravan organizers fed caravan migrants with oh I don't know ration packs given out close to the border laced with body fluids of Ebola victims so they would not be infectious till they made it across border to cause outbreak in border states.

This is Wikipedia




The Great Wall of China is a series of fortifications made of stone, brick, tamped earth, wood, and other materials, generally built along an east-to-west line across the historical northern borders of China to protect the Chinese states and empires against the raids and invasions of the various nomadic groups of the Eurasian Steppe with an eye to expansion. Several walls were being built as early as the 7th century BC;[2] these, later joined together and made bigger and stronger, are collectively referred to as the Great Wall.[3] Especially famous is the wall built in 220–206 BC by Qin Shi Huang, the first Emperor of China. Little of that wall remains. The Great Wall has been rebuilt, maintained, and enhanced over various dynasties; the majority of the existing wall is from the Ming Dynasty (1368–1644). Apart from defense, other purposes of the Great Wall have included border controls, allowing the imposition of duties on goods transported along the Silk Road, regulation or encouragement of trade and the control of immigration and emigration. Furthermore, the defensive characteristics of the Great Wall were enhanced by the construction of watch towers, troop barracks, garrison stations, signaling capabilities through the means of smoke or fire, and the fact that the path of the Great Wall also served as a transportation corridor. The frontier walls built by different dynasties have multiple courses. Collectively, they stretch from Dandong in the east to Lop Lake in the west, from present-day Sino-Russian border in the north to Qinghai in the south; along an arc that roughly delineates the edge of Mongolian steppe. A comprehensive archaeological survey, using advanced technologies, has concluded that the walls built by the Ming dynasty measure 8,850 km (5,500 mi).[4] This is made up of 6,259 km (3,889 mi) sections of actual wall, 359 km (223 mi) of trenches and 2,232 km (1,387 mi) of natural defensive barriers such as hills and rivers.[4] Another archaeological survey found that the entire wall with all of its branches measures out to be 21,196 km (13,171 mi).[5] Today, the Great Wall is generally recognized as one of the most impressive architectural feats in history.[6]

The Yuan Dynasty (1279–1368) was China's first foreign-led dynasty, in between the Chinese Song and Ming dynasties. It was established by Kublai Khan, leader of the vast Mongol Empire


The Manchurians also ruled China from 1644-1912 through various dynasties.

Most of China's history speaks to the failure of the Wall.



Although a useful deterrent against raids, at several points throughout its history the Great Wall failed to stop enemies, including in 1644 when the Manchu Qing marched through the gates of Shanhai Pass and replaced the most ardent of the wall-building dynasties, the Ming, as rulers of China.




the Tang (618–907), the Song (960–1279), the Yuan (1271–1368), and the Qing (1644–1911) mostly did not build frontier walls, instead opting for other solutions to the Inner Asian threat like military campaigning and diplomacy.

en.wikipedia.org...

AND for effs sake, that was Military Invasions BEFORE the advent of airplanes, and the wall still miserably failed.

The reason there is "still a China" is not due to the failed Wall.
The reason is there is still a China is the same reason there is still an England after the Norman and Viking Invasions etc. etc.. With time all immigrants become natives.
Ditto with the USA.
"We" have been over-run by Chinese, Germans, Irish and definitely English among many other groups.

The vast majority were fleeing famine, war and oppression. Many English immigrants were convicts banished to the new colony to ease the prison burden back in England.

"We" are the descendants of those "invasions".

It is funny that now the democrats will not agree to fund a border
wall between Mexico and the U.S. It seems they used to be for border
security and now they aren't,I wonder why?
