NBC News Reports Trump’s Wall Was Demolished by Common Tools–WRONG!

9

NBC faux news published a story claiming that the steel slat fence being touted by President Trump can be cut with common tools as a household saw.

The only problems with their story are it can’t be cut with common tools and it isn’t even the same wall.

The ‘news’ outlet posted an exclusive photo which they say shows the results of the test after military and border patrol personnel were told to destroy it with standard tools.

The left has gone wild trashing the President and his barrier. They believe it’s more proof walls don’t work. NBC used it as an opportunity to insult Trump.

EXPERT SHEDS SOME LIGHT

Jim Hanson, President, Security Studies Group, asked if they were serious. They weren’t common tools.

So you see, you can use your common everday blow torch or C4 to get through the wall, assuming won’t notice.

Anything can be breached, but as the article states, this wall is meant to slow them down or impede. The CBP responded:

In response to KPBS, CBP spokesman Ralph DeSio said the prototypes “were not and cannot be designed to be indestructible,” but were designed to “impede or deny efforts to scale, breach, or dig under such a barrier, giving agents time to respond.”

IT’S NOT EVEN THE SAME WALL

As it turns out, it’s a different wall from the one in the photos. While NBC reports that, they bury it in suggestions that common tools will destroy it so quickly that it will have no value.

The Department of Homeland Security was quoted stating the new design is not the one in the photos:

“While the design currently being constructed was informed by what we learned in the prototypes, it does not replicate those designs,” said Waldman. “The steel bollard design is internally reinforced with materials that require time and multiple industrial tools to breach, thereby providing U.S. Border Patrol agents additional response time to affect a successful law enforcement resolution. In the event that one of the steel bollards becomes damaged, it is quick and cost-effective to repair.

Multiple industrial tools will be needed. So much for the groundbreaking story from NBC.

  1. It’s been declared the new material is not the same as that used in the picture. Of course it also doesn’t tell us what the new material is. My question, ever since talks of a wall started was and still is, “has anyone figured out what the cost of repairing and maintaining something like this is wil be? $25bn to build it, how many millions to keep it up?
    also, this type of fence will not deter those capable of climbing it. There are already pictures/film showing it can be climbed as easily as it is for someone climbing up a coconut palm tree. So there will be additional cost to string a bonnet of razor wire along the top.Of course any barrier put up will have that same issue.

    • I do not see a recommendation of what you would place at the border. Placing a sturdy, continuous type of wall at the border would deter the casual illegal from crossing and would deter or slow down those organized groups that wish to illegally violate the sovereignty of the United States. There will be cost to construct and maintain. However, those costs are less than the cost illegals place upon the US taxpayer to support them and for the lives of the US citizens that are impacted by their actions.

  2. While I am absolutely FED UP with the horrific corruption from the MSM, am also gratified. They have become so outrageous, even the most detached consumer of news is beginning to see them for what they are and have long been. ABSOLUTE FRAUDS.

    Thanks to TDS, gone are the days of subtle propagandizing, gentle massaging of “news.” They are now so blatant in their bias and blatant lies, it’s almost impossible to ignore.

  3. Read the article. It tells you what is in the steel in the new fence Takes more tools and explosives to get through one slat. That picture is not the same as the new fence or wall. Whatever you want to call it. Typical NBC bullshit and twisting the facts. To get through the new wall requires many more specialized tools. Typical bull being force fed by the MSM.
