The White House released preliminary guidelines for the Mexican border wall promised by President Trump on the campaign trail.
The wall must be 30 feet high while looking imposing from the Mexican side and tasteful from the American side, Pete Hegseth reported.
The Department of Homeland Security began soliciting bids for the wall, adding that they will accept plans for both concrete and non-concrete walls
The Washington Times reported that President Trump’s budget plan allows for a partition to span as far as 2,000 miles along the border.
Blueprints must prove the bidder’s proposed wall would take at least an hour to break through.
The Times also reported that some of the 700 companies registered as possible contractors for the wall could face some backlash in the future.
Cities like Berkeley, Calif. have said they will essentially ignore future bids from companies involved in building Trump’s wall.
HAWAII HAS ZERO MUSLIM REFUGEES, CRITICIZES TRUMP MUSLIM BAN – HEY, WHY NOT SEND ALL THE REFUGEES TO HAWAII!
( Milo ) Hawaii has landed at the forefront of a national controversy after blocking President Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration.
According to Newsline, Hawaii’s General Attorney Doug Chin has expressed some very strong views against the order, saying it “discriminates against persons based upon national origins” and “violates our nation’s freedom of religion.”
The problem? Hawaii takes in zero refugees from the nations blocked in Trump’s order.
In 2015, Hawaii brought in a whopping seven refugees; one from the Ukraine, one from China and five from Burma – none of which are Middle Eastern countries notorious for exporting extremists.
So, as Steven Crowder puts it, “Hawaii is doing now what leftists worldwide do every day: change and enforce the rules for everyone but themselves.”
“The State of Hawaii will certainly not have any major role when it comes to refugee relocation,” reads the Newsline article. “The state however wants to play a major role in molding the immigration and resettlement policy through the legal process.”
The reality is that Hawaii is restrictive for refugees because of both the high cost of living and its location. In other words, Hawaii is the definition of an elitist state that wants to influence what the rest of the nation does.
SUICIDE! GERMANY’S SECRET 40-YEAR PLAN TO TAKE IN 12 MILLION MUSLIM MIGRANTS TO COUNTER LOWER GERMAN BIRTH RATES
- In a government report published last month by the German newspaper Rheinische Post, experts recommended an annual intake of up to 300,000 migrants a year for the next 40 years, to counter lower German birth rates.
- According to these official estimates, Germany will have to take in 12 million migrants to keep the current size of the German population — 82 million — stable through 2060.
- As they embark on a bizarre social engineering project on a continental scale, members of Germany’s political class evidently do not see the need to consult even their own electorates. Instead, they apparently believe in creating irreversible facts on the ground, and giving voting rights to migrants permanently residing in Germany.
Gang rapes in Sweden by Muslim migrants just don’t stop. Last weekend:
- A 25 y/o woman was stabbed and dragged to a a wooded area and gang-raped by her attackers.
- A woman in her twenties was raped on the Kings Gymnasium’s schoolyard.
- Young women were violently groped and harassed on a dancefloor.
- Police forensics are so understaffed, suspects regularly walk free.
( Gatestone ) Several Swedish women and girls have this weekend become the victim of gang rapes, rapes, and other forms of sexual violence. Increasingly, girls and women are publicly questioning the ‘normality’ of the harassment that for many of them seems to virtually have become a part of daily life.
Linköping: young woman stabbed, gang-raped
In Linköping, a 25-year-old woman was yesterday dragged away by two unknown men to a wooded area near the local university. She was subsequently stabbed, gang-raped, and robbed by the attackers, who have not been caught by police yet.
A passer-by found the crying victim, who was bleeding from cutting wounds. According to daily Aftonbladet, a similar sex attack recently took place in the same area in Linköping.
The woman managed to give a description of the assailants, but police are scarce with details. “We’re not presenting the information yet since it could negatively affect the investigation,” a law enforcement spokesman commented. The victim has been treated for her wounds in a hospital.
Stockholm: young woman raped near school
Stockholm police are investigating the rape, also committed last Sunday, of a woman in her early twenties near a school in the city centre, Expressen reports.
The authorities are secretive on details of the sex attack, that took place in the early morning hours on the schoolyard of King’s Gymnasium. Forensic detectives have sealed off the place and are looking for traces of the crime. No arrest has yet been made in the case, police have stated.
Harassment at the dance floor
Tess Bengtsson, a 20-year-old Swedish woman (pictured above), on Friday posted an open letter on her Facebook page to the men who had groped her and two of her friends a few days before during a night out in Halmstad.
When Bengtsson and the other young women were dancing in a crowd, several men systematically harassed them, even after the victims had repeatedly signalled to the attackers that they were not interested.
VIDEO: PROTESTING STUDENTS DITCHED SCHOOL CAN’T NAME 7 COUNTRIES UNDER TRUMP’S TRAVEL BAN – WATTERS’ WORLD
Several hundred New York City high school and college students walked out of their classrooms at noon on Tuesday to protest President Donald Trump and his executive order restricting travelers from seven Muslim-majority nations
On Watters World, Fox News reported.
“Which nations are on the travel ban list?” Watters asked one student.
“Well, as of right now I’m not completely sure about the actual countries,” the student said.
Countries listed by the students included Afghanistan and Lebanon, which are not part of the travel ban.
Watters asked one woman, “Why don’t you want people extremely vetted before they come here from those countries?”
“Why should they be extremely vetted?” the woman responded.
After Watters told the student that the countries could serve as terrorist safe havens, she responded, “America is a haven of terrorism.”
TRUMP SLAMS FAKE VIETNAM VETERAN SEN. RICHARD BLUMENTHAL FOR ALLEGED CRITICISM OF TRUMP BY SC NOMINEE NEIL GORSUCH
( Daily Mail ) Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut made headlines Wednesday night when he said Trump’s Supreme Court pick, judge Neil Gorsuch, agreed with his own substantial concerns about the president’s slams on judges – including one who ruled against Trump’s new immigration order.
…‘He said very specifically that they were demoralizing and disheartening and he characterized them very specifically that way,’ Blumenthal said following his meeting with Gorsuch.
Trump hammered Senator Blumenthal in a tweet Thursday morning meant to shred Blumenthal’s credibility following the revelation.
‘Sen.Richard Blumenthal, who never fought in Vietnam when he said for years he had (major lie),now misrepresents what Judge Gorsuch told him?’ Trump tweeted.
The pushback brought up a troubling part of Blumenthal’s record. While running for the Senate in 2010 while serving as the attorney general of Connecticut, the New York Times revealed that Blumenthal had claimed he served ‘in Vietnam’ when addressing veterans’ groups.
In one example, Blumenthal said to a group in 2008, ‘We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam. And you exemplify it. Whatever we think about the war, whatever we call it — Afghanistan or Iraq — we owe our military men and women unconditional support.’
Blumenthal got multiple deferments from the war, joining the Marine Reserves in 1970 but was stationed in Washington and never served in-country

VIDEO: PROTESTERS AGAINST MUSLIM TRAVEL BAN REFUSE TO OFFER SHELTER TO REFUGEES…WHY NOT :) YOU SCARED EH :)
( The Blaze ) Well-known video prankster Joey Salads — who also performs self-described “mind-blowing social experiments” — said he conducted a mock solicitation on hidden camera at Los Angeles International Airport amid protests against Republican President Donald Trump’s temporary immigrant ban.
So, arming himself with spectacles and a “Feel the Bern” T-shirt, Salads went “undercover, as a leftist” to ask the question: Would protesters be willing to put their money where their mouths are and offer to let refugees live with them?
Approaching a group of protesters sitting on a ledge at LAX, Salads introduces himself as a member of an outfit that “just got approved by the commissioner of naturalization.”
He then asks if any protesters would be willing to “give donations or to possibly offer shelter.”
Salads’ first victim says, “I have no resources. Sorry.”
A second guy writes in a “small donation” on the clipboard, Salads notes in the video, but declines to offer shelter.
Another guy says he’s “not able to do that” when asked to provide shelter to refugees.
“I live with a man who is a Trump supporter,” one woman replies, “so I don’t think he’d go for it.”
“I’m very interested in helping,” one guy answers. “I’m a little apprehensive, and I also have a female roommate who’s, like, a very nervous girl … but I’m very interested.”
“How many refugees will you be willing to hold?” Salads asks him.
The guy says he has only a couch to spare.
When Salads tells him that would be enough — in addition to providing “food and water” — the guy wonders how long he’d have to keep that up.
“Until legislation passes,” Salads replies.
