Obama’s White House Gets Higher Wall, But a Wall Between Mexico and USA for Border Security is A Bad Thing
WALLS AND SECURITY FOR ME, NOT FOR THEE …
It is the ultimate show of hypocrisy, The White House, the house that Barack Obama lives in; however, thankfully not for long, will be getting a higher fence for better security and to keep people out. The new 11-foot-7-inch barrier surrounding the White House facility will replace the 7 foot one to prevent individuals from jumping or scaling the current one. OH THE IRONY. So from the president who says fences and walls are not the answer comes the following that they are the answer when it comes to White House security. Hmm, this reeks of do as I say, not as I do and that Obama and the house he lives in is more important than the country we live in.
In a commencement speech at Rutgers, see the VIDEO below, Obama makes the point that walls are bad and evil. REALLY? Of course the fool made a reference to the Iron Curtain, and any literate person knows that it was a wall to keep people in, not out. Maybe Obama should take his own advice in that ignorance is not a virtue. Obama said the following: “Building walls won’t do that. It won’t boost our economy, and it won’t enhance our security either. [...] Suggesting that we can build an endless wall along our borders, and blame our challenges on immigrants — that doesn’t just run counter to our history as the world’s melting pot; it contradicts the evidence that our growth and our innovation and our dynamism has always been spurred by our ability to attract strivers from every corner of the globe. That’s how we became America. Why would we want to stop it now?”
But higher and more secure walls are perfectly okay for Obama. And with regards to ignorance not being a virtue Mr. President, the United States of America is a governed by rule of laws. We have never allowed all immigrants into this country. They have always had to pass a standard. And they certainly could not come into the country illegally. Sorry, but that was not how we became America. Also, since you brought up the “melting pot”. What melting pot are you referring to when in today’s society I see Mexican flags being flown at rallies and a Muslims in the USA want Sharia law? The melting pot meant assimilation into the American way of culture and society, not keeping your own.
The federal Commission of Fine Arts has given its preliminary approval for a taller White House fence to better protect the presidential mansion after a rash of fence-hopping incidents.
The commission on Thursday voted to approve an 11-foot-7-inch barrier surrounding the White House facility after a presentation by the U.S. Secret Service and the National Park Service. The new fence would replace the current 7-foot barrier.
The new fence “incorporates anti-climb and intrusion detection technology, while respecting the historical significance and visitor experience at the White House and President’s Park,” the Secret Service and Park Service said in a joint statement.
The commission, an independent federal agency charged with reviewing design and aesthetics at federal facilities, among other things, will still need to sign off on the final design, which will be refined and finalized in the coming months. The Secret Service and the Park Service hope to begin construction on the new White House fence by 2018.
A set of temporary barriers have been placed around the White House since last year to keep visitors away from the current White House fence after a number of security incidents showed that it could be easily scaled. The temporary barricades prevent tourists and visitors from approaching the fence itself.
How come Obama’s “OPEN BORDERS” philosophy is not implemented at his own house? Next up, Barack and Michelle will be telling us to eat cake.
