Oh, look! Pentagon ‘finds’ $12.8 billion for Trump’s border wall

By Jon Dougherty

See, if you apply yourself and try really hard, you can accomplish tasks assigned to you. With that in mind, let’s give the Defense Department an A+ for mission accomplished in finding billions and billions of dollars to spend on POTUS Donald Trump’s border security wall.

As reported by the Washington Examiner, the Pentagon has identified $12.8 billion in “possible” funding for the wall, according to a spreadsheet released via Twitter Monday night by Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I.

After the president lawfully declared a national emergency on the U.S.-Mexico border last month, he said he wanted to use $3.6 billion in money already approved for the Pentagon on border wall construction.

The Pentagon has since found an amount of money “in excess of the amount needed.”

It’s not yet clear where the funds will come from, but some states could see their money pulled back. That includes Lefty boroughs like California, which has $700 million in unused Army and Navy construction funds, and Hawaii, which has $400 million that can be used for the wall.

In his tweet, Reed warned that “military bases in your state could be negatively impacted” by the president’s border emergency.

Well, perhaps — depends on how “negatively impacted” is defined. One could certainly argue that the tens of thousands of largely poor and uneducated migrants members of Reed’s party are allowing to flow into our country will “negatively impact” every state, costing Americans far more than a couple hundred million dollars.

And here’s fun fact: A 2017 analysis found that building substantial new walls in places where U.S. Border Patrol and other border officials have identified the need would pay for itself within a decade.

There’s more, in terms of costs, and One America News Network recently did a report on it.

How will armchair generals who never even fielded a battalion of green army men enjoy a golden parachute pension if the wall is funded?

Want to solve the filthy street homeless problem?The US Navy has old barracks barges and troop ships laid up waiting to be junked.For the seaport cities,they could dock one or two at an unused dock run power and water to them and house the bums aboard them.

Also there are old cruise ships that could be used to house the homeless also.
