IT’S HAPPENING: New Photos Reveal Trump Admin. Preparing U.S.-Mexico Border Wall Construction

thegatewaypundit ^ | Joshua Caplan 

New photos show President Trump is making good on his number one campaign promise — building a ‘big, beautiful’ border wall between the united States and Mexico.
Left leaning Texas Observer published photos of contractors preparing the construction of the wall. You’ll read the site was more concerned about the wildlife of Santa Ana Wildlife Refuge in South Texas than the President keeping his word on curbing illegal immigration
Texas Observer reports:
For at least six months, private contractors and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials have been quietly preparing to build the first piece of President Trump’s border wall through the Santa Ana Wildlife Refuge in South Texas. The federally owned 2,088-acre refuge, often called the “crown jewel of the national wildlife refuge system,” could see construction begin as early as January 2018, according to a federal official who has been involved in the planning but asked to remain anonymous.
“This should be public information,” the official told the Observer. “There shouldn’t be government officials meeting in secret just so they don’t have to deal with the backlash. The public has the right to know about these plans.”
CBP plans to construct an 18-foot levee wall that would stretch for almost three miles through the wildlife refuge, according to the official. The structure would consist of a concrete base, which would serve as a levee, and be topped with a fence made of steel bollards, similar to a levee wall built almost a decade ago near Hidalgo, Texas. A second federal official confirmed these details to the Observer.

Democrat Party will collapse in 2018!

 by JLAGRAYFOX

I predicted the Trump POTUS victory from the day Trump announced his candidacy. I predicted that the industrial "blue collar" union folks would go massively for Trump, they did, I said Trump would get over three hundred electoral votes, he did.

I now predict the Democrat Party will lose between 8-10 Senate seats and, 12-20 House seats in the upcoming 2018 Mid-Term elections. The Senate losses could even be larger.

If the attempts to repeal Obamacare fail and Senate Democrats do not support the Republican efforts to repeal Obamacare, the Democrat Party will lose Senate seats in Florida, Virginia, West Virginia, Montana, Nevada, Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and many more!

I warn and caution many Democrats...you have set yourselves on a road to doom and defeat with your leadership and ill advised political quests.
I realize, and expect to be mocked and laughed at....but, none of that bothers me. for I have been right on the money all along!!! We shall see, come November, 2018... Hello, Senator Joe Manchin...you are going down in West Virginia, & Debbie Stabenow is going down in Michigan!!!

Applebee’s Franchise Owner Forced To Cut 1,000 Jobs After New York’s Minimum Wage Hike

westernjournalism.com ^ | July 14, 2017 | Andrew Kerr 

The CEO of Apple-Metro Inc., a company that operates about 40 Applebee’s restaurants in the New York metropolitan area, said he’s been forced to cut at at least 1,000 servers in the past year as a result of New York’s recent minimum wage hike.

“We have 1,000 less servers this time this year than we did this time last year,” Zane Tankel told Fox Business’ Stuart Varney on Monday.

That amounts a two-thirds reduction of his total workforce, Tankel said.
Tankel said the minimum wage increase has forced him to adopt a “concierge” type model of having servers help customers operate self-serve tablets and make them feel “warm and comfortable.”

“I’ve always said increasing minimum wage is technology’s best friend,” Tankel said.
