How About This Wall Deal, Mr. Trump?

Washington, DC – It was mind-boggling today to learn that Trump is expected to stay dug into his “must have a border Wall no matter what” position, deaf to what the Democrats have been saying for months (“we’re absolutely for border security, let’s protect Americans using modern technology; it’s far more effective, takes less time to install, can be moved around very easily, and is a better match for how drugs and illegal migrants enter the country”). This traumatic impasse is now expected to last until the end of the month, January 29, 2019 apparently, when Trump’s State of the Union Address is scheduled.

If the shutdown continues past thirty days, there are some who predict that the negative impact on the 800,000 furloughed federal employees may become catastrophic. This simply cannot happen. We have to move quickly to shake things up so that obstinate Donald J. Trump can see the light and reopen the government.

The most baffling part of the this bizarre showdown and shutdown is that Trump is very aware of modern technology. He’s the one who demanded the U.S. establish a Space Force. Even before that, right out of the gate in March 2017, Trump launched the White House Office of American Innovation. But the absolute penultimate technology advancement example, that’s dawning on the 2019 horizon, that Trump surely has been briefed on monthly, even weekly, is the huge technology revolution that will change society as we know it – the 5G revolution – that will kick-off an enormous surge in product innovation, many devices that will be specifically designed to address personal security, home and corporate security, and border security. CES 2019 debuted many of these new products just last week.

So what’s going on here? What is Trump really up to? How can he be trashing the lives of 800,000 Americans when he’s fully aware that the technological awakening has arrived and will be mushrooming though everything we do, and everywhere we go.

Does Trump have a mental block about technology? Do we have to craft some type of “learning experience” to help him understand how valuable these innovative border security options are?

Actually, maybe we do. So… Let’s Make a Deal, Trump? If you don’t want to use modern technology to secure the border after you’ve been bragging for two years about all these modern advancements, well then fine. Perhaps you’ll realize the benefits of modern technology if we take away yours.

Would you agree to giving up your cell phone forever, and only using a landline, and never being able to tweet again, and never using a computer, in exchange for Nancy Pelosi agreeing to your demand for $5.7 Billion Medieval Wall?

No? I didn’t thing so.

Mr. Trump, you have absolutely no justification whatsoever for shutting down the government of the United States of America. You know it, the American public knows it, and the world knows it.  You should be charged with a crime for shattering the lives of 800,000 Americans. No more wall, Mr. Trump. The shutdown has been your worst ruse yet.

Welcome 2019 Tweets from American Leaders

With such a heated ending to 2018 (#TrumpShutdown, Mattis resignation, and dismissal of 83 complaints against Kavanaugh), it’s important to note how 2019 began so we can reference it down the road. It seems the following is how every single day in 2019 will play out (several leaders took a hiatus from Twitter during the holidays, Mitch McConnell for one):

Dem’s Innovative Border Security Plan

The Democrats have proposed a very sophisticated, efficient, and economical security plan that will bring us forward in successfully accomplishing the mission of stronger security along our Southern border. President Trump apparently refuses to consider these innovative ideas.

We’re all familiar with the invisible fence created for our pets; these have existed for decades, ever since it was invented in 1973. The infinitesimal expense – especially when compared to the cost of a stone or concrete wall lining residential property, or even a wooden fence for that matter – in addition to the aesthetic advantages, have made invisible fences a very successful consumer product.

Ranchers have also been resourceful in coming up with innovative solutions in containing cattle and horses; and farmers are very creative in their methods of keeping predators away from crops. For example:

  • Invisible fence for Cattle – all that’s required are two components, the charger and the fence wire
  • Guard animals – Many farmers rely on guard animals to keep predators away from crops, examples: llamas, donkeys and dogs

With these proven solutions in mind, it makes sense that many lawmakers are thinking along these line for our Southern border. The options currently being floated by the Democrats, some of which were outlined by Senator Durbin on Meet the Press December 23, 2018 include:

  • Fund the Z Portal to dramatically increase the scanning of trucks and cars coming across border, we currently only screen approximately one out of five cars and trucks
  • Integrated Fixed Towers (IFT) system, “with radar, day and night cameras, and thermals imaging” to monitor thousands of miles of border; used along the border between Israel and Palestine
  • Predator Drone Aircraft, certain areas along the border in Texas are currently using this type of equipment for monitoring the border that the military brought back from Afghanistan

There are clearly many technological advancements that make border control much more simple and more advanced than the medieval stone wall of the 14th century that Trump is demanding.
