      Of course Snowy, let’s not say anything positive about courage or whatever.

        Hi big Al. I view the wall as a deterrent, not a solution. Can you ask Charlotte about the surrounding town border crossing statistics? This would be on either side of the 63 mile long fence.

        If my assumption is correct there would be more border crossings in the towns neighboring the outside wall.

          And by “more” I mean… statistically higher than average border crossings after the wall went up versus before

      Bush 43 makes one last stop in Iraq, December 2008

      It is pretty easy to look up Presidential visits to the Middle East….

      Obama stops in Iraq to see the troops, April 2009
      Obama makes his first stop at Bagram Air Base, December 2010
      Obama makes his second trip to Afghanistan, May 2012
      Obama makes what could be his last trip to Afghanistan, May 2014

      Snowy seems to indicate Trump is a “coward” by not visiting troops more often.

      Seems to me Trump is about on a par with recent Presidential visit timing.

      Obama made 4 visits in 8 years to Iraq and Afghanistan, Trump has made 1 visit in two years.

    Illegal immigration costs tax payers 147 BILLION dollars per YEAR. 5 – 20 billion spent building new wall (fence) sections and improving existing sections is a drop in the bucket compared to the potential cost savings. A wall going across the ENTIRE US.. now yes.. that’s certainly not the best way to maximize the return on your investment dollar, but for 5 billion it wont be a coast to coast wall, this wall will go to the spots its most needed. Many reasonable and cost effective wall proposals have already been proposed by contractors to Trump with visible options publicly available.

      Thanks Joel, I always felt that there was more to this story in favor of “The Wall” than just bickering between people.

      Your comment is an excellent example of my point in my recently posted “Christmas Letter. I truly appreciate your positive and constructive comments.

      Good post, Joel.

      You all know about this, yes?

      As of yesterday, they have raised over $17M.

      Obviously, there are more than a few people who think a barrier to discourage uninvited guests from coming on to a sovereign country’s land without proper permission is a good idea. I certainly do. Of course, I’m a 70 y/o female who can still remember the days when we had quotas and proper vetting to enter this country.

      When the day comes that I’m willing to take the doors off my dwelling, turn off the outside motion sensory security lights, remove any security alarms, chain up the dog, leave my car unlocked with the keys in the ignition (so they won’t have to be inconvenienced by the alarm going off when they try to hotwire it), and post my address on the internet, that will be the day that I start combating this partial solution to mitigate illegal immigration. (Fair disclosure: I do not have all of the “securities” mentioned above in place where I live, but you take my point, as many do.)

      Then there’s this ass

      What a world.

    This a charade in the absurdity. How about we give the border to Israel and put Jared in charge? Make sure everybody has live ammo.
    No? How about we send all those wanting to get in to the U.S to Meteor Crater in Arizona and have them mine Petrified Wood and sell them as Moon rocks to pay for the wall?

    Some people think that the truth can be hidden with a little cover up and decoration.But as time goes by, what is true is revealed and what is fake fades away.
    I love you,and because I love you,I would sooner have you hate me for telling you the truth, then adore me for telling you lies.

      That’s such a ‘sad but true statement’, Snowbird.
      There was a guest that Al had on here many times that used to make comments about how stupid the people were. And he was a government employee. And he, like you, are correct. We did it to our stupid selves.

      Good comments as always, Snowbird.
      Al had a frequent guest on his show a while back that worked in government. He’s always had a delicate way of calling the people stupid. And he was correct with his beliefs. I always chuckled when he cut everyone down, as I knew he / congress and the government knows completely, they are dealing with the brainwashed plebs.

      In a turn of masterful irony, the people are starting to awake.

      It won’t be evil that destroys the world, it will be the people that do nothing about it.

    B.A. Walls DO work. I’m a little surprised by your cynicism. El Paso as a wall ansd it really helps.

    I’m sorry you’re falling for the Fake News.

    I think this interview pretty much settles any questions regarding the effectiveness of walls.

    Who said this?

    “Nation states must today be prepared to give up their sovereignty.”

    Hitler? How about the old Commie witch sMerkel.

    “Nation states must today be prepared to give up their sovereignty”, according to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who told an audience in Berlin that sovereign nation states must not listen to the will of their citizens when it comes to questions of immigration, borders, or even sovereignty.

    So now walls, boys. You must give up sovereignty to the New World Odor.

        Is she an idiot or evil or both?

        I can’t figure out why the German people didn’t string her up decades ago.

    Should be no walls

    It’s sad to hear Al say that “I think that the effectiveness of building a quote on quote wall is absolutely not there. Al is playing Devil’s advocate in order to get his listener’s attention. Anyone with a modicum amount of intelligence and awareness knows that when people don’t obey laws you must uphold the law or change it. In this case illegal immigration should not be tolerated and if building a wall and preserving it’s integrity is what it takes so be it. Maybe Big Al should look at the puny wall The Hungarians built to keep the migrants from travelling through their country. Canada doesn’t need a wall to keep out Americans but Americans need a wall so that they don’t surrender their country to illegal immigration. DT

    It appears that both Feinstein and HRC/WJC have been traitors providing secret information to China or Chinese companies.
    This information should come out in upcoming trials.
