President Trump's core campaign promise of 2016 was to build the wall on the southern border. Dr. Jerome Corsi has been working with HESCO, which is an established defense contractor that specializes in rapid-deployment perimeter defense systems for the U.S. military around the world. They have a product that is a very flexible wall system: Terrablock. This barrier they propose can't be scaled - it's designed with a spring mechanism that springs right back off. You can't drive a truck through it. With the current wall, the steel bars are being cut through by smugglers who are able to take drugs in by cutting a few bars out.
Terrablock has installations in military establishments all around the world. The advantage is it's a "smart wall" - all of the sensors and electronics are built into it. You can tell if someone is penetrating it and respond immediately. This is a modern-day solution to the problem. The U.S. military understands that perimeter defense is not going to be achieved by big steel barriers. These walls appear formidable, but they're pretty easily able to be gotten through. President Trump doesn't need additional appropriations; he can do it with the amount of money he's got available right now and the entire 1,200 miles can be completed by Election Day. Trump’s detractors in the MSM who are trying to say not much has been built and the campaign promise hasn't been fulfilled will be proven wrong. If Terrablock can protect our troops in combat, they can protect the American people from drug criminals at the border. [more...
