BALLS TO THE WALLS  ••



HOW A TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY DEMAGOGUE GETS BEAT

 BY A TWO THOUSAND YEAR OLD CIVILIZATION   

Desolately the wind rises.
We march thousands of miles over vast distances.
Why do we cross the deserts?
To build the Great Wall.

This poem, written by Emperor Yangdi at the beginning of the seventh century A.D., is a lyrical reminder of the centuries spent by the Chinese building a wall to repel foreign invaders. Just one among many defensive strategies that China employed, the Great Wall stretches more than 5,000 miles long.   Rather than one continuous wall, it consists of many smaller pieces, all built during different eras in history. 

The Great Wall of China is more than just a part of history, it’ part of the world’s geography, a sprawling, massive edifice of mud, reeds, and billions of bricks. 

And a secret ingredient that has held the wall together for 2000 years and only recently the secret of its strength been discovered. 

But why did the Chinese go to such lengths to build it? And what secrets have enabled it to survive for over 2,000 years? We unravel its mysteries and rewrite its complex history through groundbreaking science and pioneering drone technology. 

This is how the wall was built, what its real purpose was, how it has survived multiple earthquakes and attacks, and how long it really runs.

First, there’s not just one wall, but many. The Great Walls of China, at least 16 of them, built over 2,400 years by successive emperors and dynasties. Total length: 21,000 km, three times longer than previously thought, longer than the distance between the poles. 

The idea was the same as Hadrian’s, though: to keep out marauders from the North: Scots, Mongols, they’re much of a danger, fierce warriors, tremendous horsemen on their smaller mongol horses and firing their bows, guiding the horse with their legs.  They were a constant danger on the north walls for centuries. 

So how did the scientists come up with corrected new figures for the walls?  Technology, that’s how: aerial mapping, satellite images, 3D models, GPS, laser scanning. And drones. The helicopter drone has become an essential piece of kit in the making of television documentaries like this; they breathe new life into the very ancient, using the very modern. 

These drones are good. They’re got five cameras and loads of mapping stuff.  You can just fly them along the wall and they come back with everything you need to know about it. But there is more, lots more. 

What else have they discovered, then, using all their groundbreaking science, technology and code-breaking?  That they had a complex signaling system, early Chinese semaphore, to warn of attack.  

• Red flag run up the signal pole meant 50 Xiongnu attacking  •
•   Three red flags meant 200 Xiongnu coming • 
•  Big Bonfire meant 1,000 Xiongnu coming and  •

*  HOP ON HORSE OR MULE AND GET ASS OUT OF DODGE.

The attackers were the Xiongnu  (Chinese: 匈奴; ) were a tribal confederation of nomadic peoples who, according to ancient Chinese sources, inhabited the eastern Eurasian Steppe from the third century BC to the late first century AD. Chinese sources report that Modu Chanyu, the supreme leader after 209 BC, founded the Xiongnu Empire.

After their previous overlords, the Yuezhi, migrated into Central Asia during the 2nd century BC, the Xiongnu became a dominant power on the steppes of north-east Central Asia, centred on an area known later as Mongolia. The Xiongnu were also active in areas now part of Siberia, Inner Mongolia, Gansu and Xinjiang. Their relations with adjacent Chinese dynasties to the south-east were complex, with repeated periods of conflict and intrigue, alternating with exchanges of tribute, trade, and marriage treaties.

During the Sixteen Kingdoms era, they were known as one of the Five Barbarians.  Attempts to identify the Xiongnu with later groups of the western Eurasian Steppe remain controversial. Scythian’s and Sarmatians were concurrently to the west.

The name Xiongnu may be cognate with that of the Huns or the Huna, although this is disputed. Other linguistic links – all of them also controversial – proposed by scholars include Iranian, Mongolic, Turkic, Uralic, Yeniseian, Tibeto-Burman or multi-ethnic.

THE SECRET INGREDIENT
Top chemistry professor and expert in ancient building materials Dr Xiang has taken samples from the Ming dynasty wall, which was built after the Mongols – who had occupied China for over a century – were finally sent packing. He has found that the secret of the Ming wall’s strength and longevity lies not in the bricks but in the mortar. 

The whitish color of the mortar was said, in legend, to be because it was made from ground-up human bones. Not so, says Xiang. The secret ingredient that went into the mortar, kept the WORLD’S GREATEST MEGASTRUCTURE standing for hundreds of years?   Sticky rice. Yes, the same thing that sticky rice in SuShi without acetic soy sauce can bind you up, binds the wall.  Thats why sticky rice or Su-Shi in Chinese means vinegar flavored rice.

TRUE IN TOTAL ONLY OF MANY EFFORTS -  IT IS 13, 000 miles (21,000km) long but was built over many dynasties, decades and centuries. It also includes the first walls, a mud and reed wall built further north against raiders.  Most of which has deteriorated, leaving a few small house size hills and the newer ( Ming Dynasty and later ) walls were built with heat treated bricks and the secret mud mix using sticky rice which has survive over 2000 years.   

A comprehensive archaeological survey, using advanced technologies, has concluded that the walls built by the Ming dynasty measure 8,850 km (5,500 mi).   This is made up of 6,259 km (3,889 mi) sections of actual wall, 359 km (223 mi) of trenches and 2,232 km (1,387 mi) of natural defensive barriers such as hills and rivers.

Another archaeological survey found that the entire wall with all of its branches measures out to be 21,196 km (13,171 mi).  Today, the Great Wall is generally recognized as one of the most impressive architectural feats in history.



EMPORER T-RUMP - MODERN DAY WALL BUILDERS

2/15/2019 - THE ROSE GARDEN SPEECH LIES

NOTE:  For brevity we only printed the lies, the highlights, explanations and falsehoods would have taken three pages and are just more of the bullshit he tells so often, he believes himself.  These were the high points of the lies.  In addition he quoted his imaginary  invisible, no name, no corroboration people he invents during the hours he spends doing nothing in the oval office.

  • “I built a lot of wall. I have a lot of money and I built a lot of wall. (Bullshit) (Pay off the billion dollar debt you just ran up on the deficit)  
  • “A big majority of the big drugs, the big drug loads don’t go through ports of entry”  ( Bullshit)
  • “President Obama put on more debt on this country than every president in the history of our country combined. (Bullshit)
  • “China is paying us billions in tariffs.”   (Bullshit)
  • T-RUMP: "Two weeks ago, 26 were killed in a gunfight on the border a mile away from where I went (Bullshit)
  • “In fact, (Obama) told me he was so close to starting a big war with North Korea.  (Bullshit)
  • "We had certain funds that are being used at the discretion of generals, at the discretion of the military. ... Some of them haven't been allocated yet. And some of the generals think that this is more important. I was speaking to a couple of them. (Bullshit) They think this is far more important than what they were going to use it for.   ( Name Names or it’s (Bullshit)
  • “We will have a national emergency, and we will then be sued, and they will sue us in the 9th Circuit, even though it shouldn’t be there and we’ll possibly get a bad ruling, and then we’ll get another bad ruling and then we'll end up at the Supreme Court, and hopefully we'll get a fair shake."  ( Colossal Bullshit)


ARE WALLS OBSESSIONS ?

LIKE A FART IN A SPACESUIT THE SMELL ARISES, 
AS WE LISTEN TO THE WORDS THAT COME WITH NO SURPRISES...

HIS WORLD OBSESSED BY MILES OF A MIGHTY STEEL WALL
WILL NOT STOP ANYTHING OF CONSEQUENCE AND REALLY COST US ALL

FOR OUR LEADER A MAN OF MANY WORDS
COMES FORTH AS ALWAYS WITH PILES OF TURDS...

WHY DO WE LISTEN TO THIS MAN ACROSS THE NATION,
HOPEFULLY ONE DAY, WE WILL HEAR OF HIS TOTAL ELIMINATION... 

The short poem is dedicated to Donald J. T-RUMP for his recognition as the Greatest Liar ever Born


WASHINGTON —  When someone is obsessed, they’ve lost control of their feelings about the object of their obsession. The adjective obsessed is often used to simply mean “ they ar very interested,” but when someone is truly obsessed, their interest has become compulsive, and they’ve begun to lose control over it.   Thus T-RUMP is compulsive about the wall and adding to his compulsive lying it become viral.

In an onslaught of historical and sometimes ignorant hysterical morning 2/15/2019 Twitter posts, President T-RUMP aka  The Ignorant Oneinsisted on Thursday that he has been unwavering in his stance for building a border wall between Mexico and the United States to thwart illegal immigration. 

He was responding to — and directly contradicting — most of the will of the United States.   “The Wall is the Wall, it has never changed or evolved from the first day I conceived of it,” Mr. T-RUMP wrote.   

But a review of Mr. Trump’s public statements on Twitter, in campaign speeches and during interviews shows that the president’s views on the border wall have shifted repeatedly since he raised the idea nearly four years ago, on Aug. 5, 2014.


THE WALL -- THE EVER CHANGING LIE WHICH CHANGES BY THE WHIM OF AN IDIOT LIAR

Mr. Trump’s early statements about the length of the wall were ambiguous. More recent descriptions about the distance it would cover, however, have been fairly consistent since it has been dissected and shrimped by those who don’t believe one word from T-RUMP  aka “ The Ignorant One”  Again so many lies and untruths, I had to use brevity or run out o of room and patience. 

2015  - “You don’t need a wall for the entire piece because we have wonderful people, Border Patrol people, that can do the job.  But you do need walls in certain sections, without question.   How are you going to build a 1,900-mile wall?  Trump: Very easy. I’m a builder.  That’s easy. I build buildings that are — can I tell you what’s more complicated? What’s more complicated is building a building that’s 95 stories tall.

“As far as the wall is concerned, we’re going to build a wall. We’re going to create a border. We’re going to let people in, but they’re going to come in legally.  They built the Great Wall of China. That’s 13,000 miles.   Here, we actually need 1,000 because we have natural barriers. So we need 1,000.”

“In our case, we need really 1,000 miles. It’s 2,000 miles, but some is natural borders, natural barriers which are pretty good, not as good as the wall but pretty good; you know what, let’s use it.”  “So, let’s say it costs $4 or $5 billion. Our trade deficit with Mexico is $53 billion. So $4 or $5 billion is peanuts.” “You mean to tell me I can’t take $7 billion and build a wall?”  “If the wall costs $6 billion to build, and you know we’re talking about 1,000 miles, it’s 2,000, but you need it on 1,000. The Great Wall of China, think of it, is 13,000 miles.”

2016 -- “China built a wall that’s 13,000 miles long 2,000 years ago. My ambition is for ours to be much higher.”   The height of the Great Wall of China averages 20 to 23 feet. Its tallest point is 46 feet.   -  “I’m talking about precasts going up probably 35 to 40 feet up in the air.   That’s high. That’s a real wall.”   “The wall just got 10 feet higher.” — Speech in Tampa, Fla., after the former Mexican president said Mexico would not pay for it.
“But — and I used an example. And this isn’t necessarily what was said, but whatever was said, the wall’s 50 feet high. Is it going to be 45 feet or 40 feet? That could very well be. That could very well — he wants it to be higher.”
'Every Time They Fight Me, It Gets 10 Feet Taller'
Reporter: How high is this wall going to be lately? How high is it —  Mr. Trump: I think a good 35 feet. It’s getting higher all the time.

2017  -  “You have 2,000 miles. You have mountains, you have rivers, you have things that you don’t put the wall in, you don’t need them.”  Maybe $10 or $12 Billion'   “First of all, they say the wall is going to cost $40 billion — the Democrats are saying. We’re talking less than half.” 

2018 - So the wall. The wall’s never meant to be 2,100 miles long. We have mountains that are far better than a wall. We have violent rivers that nobody goes near. ...Mr. Trump’s price tag for the wall has grown from $4 billion to $20 billion.   The height of the proposed wall has roughly doubled and could grow even higher.
 “If you have a wall this thick and its solid concrete from ground to 32 feet high, which is a high wall, much higher than people planned. You go 32 feet up and you don’t know who’s over here. 


THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD

BECAME THE BIGGEST LIE BY TRUMP

Mr. Trump wants Mexico to foot the bill — but it’s not clear how.  Mr. Trump has been consistent in insisting that Mexico would pay to build the wall. But his position on how he would compel that country to fund it has varied.  
The opposition has been strongly against any funding of a wall.  He made it up like everything else, that what losers do.

When you build a Medieval wall you can be sure the siege folks already know how to go over through or under it. The wall is thinking by a third grade intellect in a 70 year old ignorant body working on keeping a base and wasting billions of dollars.  Dollars not be paid to innocent federal workers and he doesn’t care.


THE WALL AND TRUTH 

Border Patrol agents in Arizona thwarted some clever drug smugglers and dismantled a drug catapult used to launch marijuana into the United States from Mexico.  

The catapult was attached to the top of a border fence near the Douglas Port of Entry, which is about two hours southeast of Tucson, Customs and Border Protection officials said in a statement Tuesday. The device appeared to be constructed of square tubing and a heavy spring welded together, with rope tied around parts of it.

The design portion was attributed to the pumpkin throwing contests held in the mid west. The contraption was powerful enough to sling two bundles of weed -- weighing a combined 47 pounds -- into the United States from Mexico. 

The wall is not the answer, the wall is his political death because it’s all about him.  Its old like his ideas.  I fear for him, his unstableness and with no one in the WhiteHouse besides ass-kissers and those working in fear, the Generals were thought of as guard rails. If I were him, I would be more realistically concerned about living longer.  In the past many times one bullet has changed nations. 

Look at the facts, good people were assassinated for being good people.  The difference is that T-Rump is far from being a good guy, very, very far.  The Gandhi’s, the Kennedy’s, Lincoln, Martin Luther King, McKinley and others all were for the people.  Herr Trump is not.  He is for Donald J. Trump alone, when he tells you how much he loves his country, thats what he means... he thinks it’s his country and we are there to serve him.  


MEXICO SAID NO TO PAYING FOR THE WALL   The present President of Mexico Andrés Manuel López Obrador, doesn’t care about the wall and will not pay for it.  Former President of Mexico Vincente Fox in a more positive manner has stated many times he is not in the wall business.  

‘No way Gringo, we are not paying for the friggen wall’...  73% of the Americans do not want that wall.  Update, about 90% now.  It was more of his bullshit promise’s you made to those weak minded GOP base idiots and Evangelical supporters you have.  The only ones stupid enough to support you. 

Next time, as sooner or later folks wake up from the ether, many will rejoice maybe at your impeachment, funeral or  assassination, the wall issue will be dead, the timing is wrong, you were using it for political rhetoric and now you are in the toilet over it shutting down the government.  

So you should not make promises you can’t keep even if they are to people stupid enough to believe you and excuses you use for failure.  


COMMENTS, READERS SUGGESTIONS, AND QUESTIONS

There is a reason Donald Trump will never testify in court even if they subpoena him and drag him into court. Before you testify you are told  “WE WANT THE TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH”.  Not a good idea for TRUMP... He can’t spell ‘ Truth’ and has no idea what it means.  

Most likely he will gag at that point,  start gasping, the Lord might intervene and will strike him dead, or his hair will start to burn and toast his brain already diminished by gallons of Diet Coke which can rot the ganglia of nerve cells in the smallish brain he has and it can also can take paint off a car.  And today 02/15/2019  Nearly half of US adults have cardiovascular disease, study says.  Previous research has shown a link between diet beverages and stroke, dementia, Type 2 diabetes, obesity and metabolic syndrome, which can lead to heart disease and diabetes.

"This is another confirmatory study showing a relationship between artificially sweetened beverages and vascular risks. While we cannot show causation, this is a yellow flag to pay attention to these findings,” said American Academy of Neurology. 

Donald doesn’t understand truth, it’s not part of his DNA, he lies over and over again to cover his lies with more lies, then calls it fake news. There is little fake news, thats the big lie right there.  Most things said about TRUMP are the truth, and he is no good with truth.

Donald J. Trump came into the office aimed to set the world on fire... He did, and the frickin world is still burning, but it’s all about him, he hates everything and everybody who is not on his side... some call it a back-side. 

But the axion is true he is probably hated now as bad as Putin and for Trump it was just as simple, just act like a lieing pr•ck. And he is a bigot, his immigration policies are clear...  and do not represent those of the majority of Americans the bigotry represents the beliefs and false promises Trump made to the GOP base and the Evangelicals. 


TRUMP ON GUN CONTROL AND A HEINOUS THOUGHT
  -- 
 Now we know Donald will do nothing about gun control.  He is owned lock stock and barrel by the NRA, and thats a bad move for him.  He should be quite worried about all those military style high-powered rapid fire rifles floating around.  Add Russian collusion with the NRA, with the gal spy who pled guilty and will most likely be deported.  It occurred to me the odds:  And he better give this some consideration. 

350 million or so Americans and Illegals...who live in the United States, most are legal enough to own a weapon, but bad guys don’t register their guns... all of the 250-275 million guns are not registered or legal. Millions are not traceable

And it only takes one person and one bullet between the eyes and the rest of the numbers don’t matter.  It is not my style nor thoughts thereof or preferred choice, for settling or elimination of political matters, by a bullet. I really prefer T-Rump just drop dead from Diet Coke Poisoning”  and be buried in the imaginary swamp, he drained but why did he replace it with an OPEN-AIR CESSPOOL?  


TRUMP and YOUR FUTURE –  And if you work for him while you researching your future with Donald,  think of JOB Security... You might stand a chance getting another job in Washington if you worked for Trump and were fired for insubordination, or talking to the press with truth. 

You will then be safe, otherwise eliminate and short time with Trump, staying will be very toxic to your resume. Simply explained, working for Trump is a bad move if you intend to stay or live anywhere near Washington, Virginia or in some way be involved with a government position. You have a choice work for another agency or start your own business.

You can always check with Mrs McMahon the cabinet secretary for small business.  Run by Professional Wrestling’s Favorite mom... Linda McMahon is the 25th Small Business Association administrator, advocating for the country’s small businesses.  

And she’s a tough old broad known for kicking opponents in the ring and kicking her husband in the balls on occasion in front of fake wrestling fans, fake bouts, fake outcomes, fake announcers and some really bad acting by a few steroid generated supermen and women.

She,  just like Betsy DeVos of EDUCATION gave a lot of money to Trumps projects and fake foundations, to buy the jobs they have.  (Millions)  Neither is really competent, they were loyalty gifts given out by Trump.  And tough to get rid of since their jobs were gifts and nothing good will come from them.  How do you quit or get fired when or because you did nothing and failed to fail.

JOB HUNTING? - TRUMP JOB OPENINGS - Some opportunities do exist for former employees of the T-RUMP Cabinet and staff debacle.  They may seek employment with the District Of Columbia, Department of Refuse. Their Street Pickup Division is looking for a  “FEW GOOD MEN” at the Department Of Public works.   Contact Email:  dpw@dc.gov  Applicants must be able to lift seventy-five pounds. 


HOW TO GET FIRED WORKING FOR TRUMP SO IT LOOKS GOOD ON YOUR RESUME 

☠️ You will get fired for asking Donald’s confidant,  Kelly “ Condom” Conway what exactly is  “ Alternative News” and why the condom nickname?  She needs one on her tongue, it’s a very contagious source of misinformation, lots of bad news, untruths, lies and bullshit come from it. 

☠️ Then ask Sara Notawara  “What time is it”?   And getting in response   “ I’ll have to get back with you”.  Tell her please don’t!   She’s still learning how to tell time.  She was so bad as the Press Corps Representative when asked in a survey what needs to be done to make the Press Corp meetings useful and active again, they suggested tossing her from the roof.

☠️ When you consider TRUMP had to get Rudi Giuliani to be his representative media lawyer you realize he has chosen not only the bottom of the barrel but the dirt beneath the barrel.  As if that isn’t bad enough, they hit a sewer pipe!  Just ask Rudi if he still cross dresses, weird... we called RuPaul of Drag Queen fame to get Rudi an audition but he/she/?  Our offer was refused. 

☠️ It’s more than the concern of the damage Donald will do in the last two years of office. A few things are evident all revolving around the deficit, the 17 investigations, the flip flops of former consorts, and conspirators.  He is under a lot of pressure as his world is being autopsied and the results by Dr. Mueller will be out soon.


☠️ Our Fuehrer and Entertainer in Chief took his road show all over the world and just about managed to just about screw up everything.  To hear him tell it, “ He killed them!"  He sure did and they would have liked to return the favor.   

True but not the way you might have expected.  His speech to the United Nations, Hong Kong, Paris, twice, England, Germany...  all well covered by lies and more lies and at the UN they laughed out loud at him.  He killed it all right, kiss most relationships goodby.

☠️ The only possible way some of those allied countries respect us again would be with a full formal apology and someone entering the UN Building with Trumps head still bleeding on a stick.  But that was not the story he told the American people.  Telling Americans how great he was, well the consensus tells us he did kill it, right, he did kill it in a different sense, and it will take decades to fix it.  He went FUBAR every time Air Force One stopped on the trips abroad and enough FUBARS to keep FOX news in business.

☠️ You should read the foreign press. They were not kind... Insults, couth of an outhouse, no manners, disgusting, unsuccessful deals, splitting our allies, The real Press reports what a really sick man Donald Trump is and the destruction of this country by him.  They did their job, his attacks on the press don’t work there. 


☠️ TRUMP ATTACKS THE PRESS:  The job of the PRESS  is to protect the people by sifting and selection of truth, not fabrication and lies our politicians are capable of.  The expression sorting the wheat from the chaff, does not really correlate with this WhiteHouse, since it’s all usually chaff.

Sorting the TRUMP bullshit of today from yesterday’s TRUMP bullshit which becomes fake news is a lot closer to the truth. 


☠️ THE FREE PRESS IS THE GUARDIAN:   Fact:  he blames everyone but himself  just like other demagogues did. He blames the Democrats, how frickin stupid can people be to believe this... if the GOP ruled both the House and Senate for two solid years and nothing made headway in Congress and used obstructionism to not movie on Democratic bills please show me how can the Democrats be the problem.  How can you claim a crisis when the GOP did nothing of consequence about the border when they were totally in control, and suddenly it’s the focus of an obsession that has stopped anything good in the government for months.   

HE HAS NOT ONLY SUCKED THE AIR OUT OF THE ROOM
HE HAS TURNED IT INTO A GAS CHAMBER...
 

Almost three years of lies and daily attacks on the press, ring the bell and puts him in contention with others who did the same like Hitler, and Mussolini.  Eventually there was no press only a propaganda operation for the regime.  That does not work in a Democracy, and the press fights back.  More Lies, Lies after Lie, and More Lies, the man is sick.   His friends, protected by Freedom of Speech and healthy ignorant audiences,  Hannity , Ingraham, Coulter and Limbaugh should be arrested as traitors to this country.  He lies they swear to it...bless the poorly educated.

This is simple, if all the news 24/7 is all about Trump,  [he rules the airwaves] but to do that he has to come up with some ridiculously stupid crap beyond immagination.  Only then,  the information brewing has to be coming from Trump.  It’s not coming from Boris and Natasha, Jesus Christ, Mahatma Gandhi, Alfred E. Neuman, Boris Badinoff, Emma Kazinsky, Counselor Troi, or Goofy of Mickey Mouse fame.  

His thoughts do come from Lenin, Hitler and Trotsky, Stalin and others who down through the ages hurt a lot of mankind.  

He admires some of the worst scumbags of the century, Vladimir Putin, Kim Jung Un, Mohammed bin Saud, Duarte, and others. 

There are a lot of dead people that will back that statement.  He is building an Oligarchy from a Democracy.

WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS:   But the effect will be brutally nasty for us as who would be stupid enough to walk into the chaos and mess he has created;  

Who is smart enough to fix the physical damage he has done to the environment, school systems, housing; 

Who can draw a partisan government together to secure and repair infrastructure, and immigration, and Medicare;  

Who will solve the riddle of Medicaid, Medical Insurance problems, OPIODS/Fentanyl problems;  

Who can put the trust back in the DOJ, the FBI related organizations, our Judicial system and reunite them as truthful and not just political favored hacks;  

Who, and this is a great challenge, will have the ability to encourage good people to get into government after this ass-clown has polluted Washington with the worst bunch of handpicked scumbirds and losers ever in the history of the country.
