    Why would you say that when the walls that exist, do in fact work. You think just sticking your head in the sand is going to make it not so?

    When Trump was at the CBP facility in McAllen, Texas yesterday, a CBP agent was showing him blown-up pictures and showed Trump two places near McAllen where tunnels were dug under the wall. Trump didn't want to hear about that and said nothing. Funny as hell.

    McAllen sits right on the border. Not all of McAllen even has a border fence. Yet it's rated the safest city in Texas. That's mighty odd for a crisis border city.

    McAllen is Safe and Sound


    We are now in → Day 30 ← of the Donald Trump/Mitch McConnell government shutdown.

    I was being facetious.

    My “belief”, based on facts, is that KUSI exec’s were looking for their 15 minutes of national fame by making an unsupported accusation (by their own admission) against a globally known, major news network.

    As reported by The Daily Caller (friend of the right wing crowd):

    CNN claims that they reached out to several local reporters for the planned segment and didn’t end up interviewing any of them — and it wasn’t because of their politics.

    “We called several local stations to book someone for a show. We didn’t end up booking any of them. That happens many times every single day,” a CNN spokesperson said in a statement provided to The Daily Caller. “We did, however, book a reporter from KUSI for a story on immigration and the border wall on CNN in November. This is a nonstory.”

    Cohen admitted that CNN never explicitly indicated that they were declining to interview Plante over his reporting that walls work.

    “Nobody said, ‘We don’t want your guy because of that,'” Cohen said, adding that the “dust-up” with CNN was really “no big deal.”

    Some great reporting by those journalists. Would have been even better if they reported facts, instead of opinion.
