David Acevedo attended a Corp of Engineers meeting and thought he would come away with more information about the Trump’s border security plans, but Acevedo, whose family owns 180 acres of land near the Rio Grande, said the meeting only produced more questions about how the administration was going to move forward with plans it had for this family's land.

“They didn’t tell us that they were doing a physical barrier. They said, ‘It may be a wall, it may be that we just need lights, we’re going to put lighting up, it may be we just need a road.’” He knew the administration wanted access to his land to conduct surveys and site samples and grant access for 18 months.

The actions are similar to the sporadic but hurried moves the administration is taking as it fast-tracks construction of a border barrier ahead of the 2020 election, moving ahead with construction of new barriers.

I wonder how much the lovers of freedom and liberty love this president? They'd probably say something like, "Well Obama was just as bad or worse and all of this didn't just start with Trump!" Excuse me. How obvious is that non response? I can name that tune in five centuries. Seems like a little bit of denial and over compensation for something, I don't know what exactly...sort of a downplaying of the seriousness of having to be honest, to be real in the moment, instead, suggesting that our current demise is not to be blamed on our current leaders. Seriously?

If my friends not only cannot let go of the duoploy how in the world will they ever let go of being played over and over again, strangely thinking that evil has never looked so good?

The key concept that totally explains the apparent enigma from which you are suffering and laboring to understand is this:


CORPORATE KLEPTOCRACY.


I have labored like you to comprehend the last few years, and that is the only concept and terms that opens and answers all the explanations.

What are they so afraid of that a wall must be built? Such a total waste of time and money.
