Trump's First Pillar of National Security: Build the Border Wall
In both his National Security Strategy released today and the speech he delivered at the Ronald Reagan Building explaining it, President Donald Trump said the United States will build a wall along the southern border as part of the first pillar of his plan, which focuses on protecting the American homeland and way of life.
“We will secure our borders through the construction of a border wall, the use of multilayered defenses and advanced technology, the employment of additional personal and other measures,” said the president's formal strategy document.
He reiterated the point in his speech.
“First, we must protect the American people, the homeland and our great American way of life,” Trump said. “This strategy recognizes that we cannot secure our nation if we do not secure our borders.
"So, for the first time ever, American strategy now includes a serious plan to defend our homeland," said Trump. "It calls for the construction of a wall on out southern border, ending chain migration and the horrible visa and lottery programs, closing loopholes that undermine enforcement, and strongly supporting our Border Patrol agents, ICE officers, and Homeland Security Personnel.”
Trump also criticized politicians in Washington, D.C., whom he said left the nation's borders open even as the American people objected to what they were doing.
“Over the profound objections of the American people, our politicians left our borders wide open,” Trump said.
“Millions of immigrants entered illegally, millions more were admitted into our country without the proper vetting needed to protect our security and our economy,” he said.
“Leaders in Washington imposed on the country an immigration policy that Americans never voted for, never asked for, and never approved,” Trump said. “A policy where the wrong people are allowed into our country and the right people are rejected.
“American citizens, as usual, have been left to bear the costs and pick up the tab,” he said.

2018 -- Hermes -- A soldier in the information war
As we head into 2018, be assured of one thing - it will be characterized by an immigration and border information war.
The mainstream media, including CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, etc., will be on one side --- and President Trump and his tweets will be on the other.
Backing up the president will be the only non-profit that works right on the border - American Border Patrol.
In addition to fixed-wing aerial surveillance that provide so valuable in Operation BEEF, this next year we are going to make extensive use of our HERMES drones to give America a close-up view of the action.
PS -- We operate without donations because the following give us what we need for free: Bebop drones of France, DJI drones of China, Cessna Aircraft Company, all airport Fixed Base Operators, all insurance companies, local, state and federal taxing agencies, the time of all workers, Internet Service Providers, electric utilities, propane gas companies, Home Depot, Lowes and Amazon --- not to mention the Federal Reserve.
