Jimmy Acosta just showed that the walls do work.

Jimmy wouldn't want to go near all the vagrants. Might get dirt on his girly Ray Ban lenses...
Wait really? What a dumb argument.

I think Trump should just dig a huge crevasse like the end scene in Moria in Lord of the Rings. Maybe if we're lucky he'll trip and fall in.

Trump is his own preciousssss, he gazes at the mirror each night, at precious, and precious whispers sweet words of love back at him and nothing else matters.

One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them, One ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.


The sad thing about all of this is that Tolkien wrote it so many years ago, in what was supposed to be another world, but here we are and it's 2019.

A clip from a 1950s TV show is going viral because of some eerie parallels to President Donald Trump and his plan to build a wall.

The episode of the series “Trackdown” titled “The End of the World” featured a conman by the name of Trump ― Walter Trump ― who was trying to sell a wall to a town to protect it from meteorites.

“I am the only one, just me,” Trump said on the show. “I can build a wall around your homes that nothing can penetrate.”

The episode aired on May 8, 1958, with Lawrence Dobkin as Walter Trump, Snopes reported.

Much like President Trump claimed “I alone” can fix the nation’s problems in 2016, the Trump in the TV show said “I alone” had a message about the end of the world ― and a way to prevent it.

His answer? Build a wall.

The Trump on the show also had a penchant for threatening lawsuits.

“Be careful, son,” he warned in one scene. “I can sue you.”

And to round out the parallels, the fictional Trump was called a liar by the show’s protagonist, Texas Ranger Hoby Gilman, who was played by Robert Culp.

For anyone who still doesn't believe we are living in a simulation, explain this video from 1958 about Trump and his wall.

This is incredible and also I am glad I am not using psychedelic drugs because I'd be having some serious "time is a flat circle" concerns  ;D ;D

I know what you mean.  I still can't wrap my head around this one (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=irrbuaiUMVw).

This time line is definitely an interesting one.

The Republicans could have approved money for the wall at any point during Trump's first two years.  I wonder if they did not do so because they do not like the optics of it.  They don't want to be labeled the anti-Mexican White Nationalist Party by the Democrats.

They appear to have waited to push for Trump's wall until losing the House to the Democrats in order to spin the resulting wall as bi-partisan.

+1.   Both parties do this type of thing all the time and no one ever calls them on it.  They wait until they can blame the other side.  Notice how Republicans never reduce government when they control everything and Democrats never reduce military spending or bring troops home.   Sometimes they do something you would think the other side would do (Clinton reforming welfare, Bush creating a new major entitlement program, Obama expanding the war on Terror and the war on drugs, Trump pulling troops out).   But they never do what they say they are going to do. They are all frauds.
