While speaking with Fox News this week, President Joe Biden's former Border Patrol chief, Rodney Scott, confirmed that under Biden's leadership :monkey:, U.S. taxpayers are paying millions of dollars each day "to not" build a wall along its border with Mexico.

What did he say?
Scott told host Bret Baier that at one point, the U.S. was paying $5 million a day to contractors despite the fact that wall construction had been canceled.

"Many of those projects today are just still on hold, so we're paying contractors. For a while, it was almost $5 million a day between [Department of Defense] and [Department of Homeland Security] to not build the border wall," he said.

"That money is just trickling away to contractors for not doing work each day," he added.

Scott also noted that in places where former President Donald Trump had ordered wall construction all that is left are "stacks and stacks of border wall panels," "hundreds of miles of fiber optic cabling," and "hundreds of cameras" that are just "sitting there."

What else?
Scott's claims matched the findings of a Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Subcommittee on Government Operations and Border Management report released in July.

In the report, the committee revealed that the Biden administration has spent roughly $2 billion — or $3 million per day — on costs associated with canceling wall construction inaugurated under Trump.

Contractors, instead of getting to work building the wall, are now paid primarily to guard construction materials.

"By the end of the Trump Administration, $10 billion had been transferred to U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) accounts for border wall construction and related projects. As of June 2021, the Biden Administration has wasted roughly 20 percent ($2 billion) of that $10 billion on suspension and termination costs related to border wall contracts," the report stated.

"The Biden Administration is paying contractors at least $3 million per day to guard steel, concrete, and other materials in the desert," the report went on to explain. "This waste of taxpayer resources threatens military readiness and national security."

Anything else?
Scott, who described himself as nonpartisan, agreed that Biden's approach to border security was endangering the country.

He said he was there during all of the transition briefings and made clear to the new administration that rolling back Trump's immigration enforcement policies would cause disaster at the border. But no one listened.

"We made it very clear that if we dropped all of the initiatives that have been put in place over the last several years that we would get an influx of mass migration that we would not be able to control," he said. "It was very clear there are people involved in this process that have been involved before, and they're choosing not to take simple, commonsense steps to secure the border."

Scott served in Border Patrol for nearly 30 years before stepping down in June. He was replaced by Raul L. Ortiz in August.

Isn't it sad that this administration hates America so much and wants it destroyed before our very eyes while they get richer and richer.  :(

Yes, ssarber, it is monumentally sad.

Thanks for noticing; not everyone does, you know.  :(

No problem now.(sarcasm).  Biden canceled all construction contracts too. Did you see the pictures of all the products sitting there ready to go up? "New videos captured by drone from Fox News captured footage of stacks of steel panels worth roughly $120 million, already funded by taxpayers’ expenses being left unused and abandoned in Pharr, Texas. According to Fox News, the massive piles of 20,000 steel panels have been “baking in the sun” since Biden halted border wall construction in January." 

I love the way Biden has opened our borders (more sarcasm) to anyone that wants to come here, no testing, no vaccinations. yet our citizens are being forced by Biden and companies to get vaccinated.  They have flown or bussed over 77,000 illegals around the county to hide them from being counted. That includes sick with Covid, measles, TB, and any other disease you can think of plus terrorists. They caught at least 50 terrorists. Who knows how many slipped through...oh, and then there's the other 60,000 illegals on their way according the the Panamanian PM last week.

Some good news!! I just heard this today.  :thumbsup: 8)

"EAGLE PASS, Texas — Trucks arrived in the early morning hours Tuesday hauling dozens of shipping containers to the banks of the Rio Grande. Governor Greg Abbott is using the re-purposed containers to serve as a makeshift border barrier in preparation for the latest migrant caravan. As locals looked on from both sides of the border, Texas authorities worked with contract crews to install the containers."

How much does the US military spend on ammo?
Overall ammo spending in 2022 could be $2.1 billion, down sharply from $2.8 billion this year. from the $470 million it spent this year. Spending on mortar rounds could drop by $13 million. The Army's rocket budget would take a huge hit, dropping from $229 million to $134 million.May 28, 2021

I just googled this.

If you had the $$$$ *issed away on ammo you can build a few lemonade stands for the guys building wall.Gets mighty hot in Texas in summertime.

You know, you really should show a little bit more respect for the most powerful man in the free world. He was duly elected and everything. I mean, you are spot on in calling him out as being wicked and all - it's just that he is in power based upon the will of the people.

With how little Christendom warns us of the machinations of the devil and how politically you are involved with this Satanic world,im not surprised you even made this POOR attempt at humor/sarcasm!!

ALL scripture is inspired by God and beneficial for teaching,reproving and setting matters straight.2nd Tim 3:16

Based on the will of the people?LOLL!!!

And you support the USA???Clearly you support the election was rigged with that comment.

One nation under god?LOL!!!Correct when bible warns us Satan is even referred to as a god.

You wont find one nation under Jehovah written.But you will find "MY kingdom is NOOOOOOOOO part of this world".as Jesus said to Pilate and the name Jesus means,"Jehovah is salvation"

But why am i telling you all this?Even tho the truth stands out like a nude Marilyn Monroe coming out of a birthday cake would be,Satan has BLINDED you and most of the world to have Jesus declare the road to destruction is broad and spacious and narrow to those finding life.

No. I don't think the election was rigged. I DO think that there were some attempts to rig it on behalf of Joe Biden, and I think there will be more attempts in 2024, but Joe won the election. I am not one of the crazies who attacked the Capitol on your "Remember January the 6th!" battle cry.


Also - thank you for acknowledging that I was making an attempt at humor and sarcasm.


But blinded by Satan?  Ouch! That one still hurts a bit. So I guess even if a nude Marilyn Monroe DID come out of a birthday cake - I wouldn't be able to see her? 
Damn.   :'(

To compare that scripture to Joe Biden,yes its hard NOT to think Satan has you wrapped around his pinky.

JWs put much emphasis on why this world is the way it is and that Satan and his angels have much to do with it....just as the bible says.

Seriously time to check your religeon against the bible.We have helped you immensely to see the truth RE Christendom and the bible.

Is Hail Mary still in existence in Catholics or just in NFL now?Did Christendom forget the bible advice to remove the wicked one from you when MANY priests and so-called preachers of the bible raped children?

The millions that died before Jesus came to earth where did they go if Jesus said NO man has ever gone to heaven or man had an immortal soul ?Did they all go to YOUR hell?Satan couldnt have been there.He was roaming around in heaven and in 1914 got thrown out of it with his angels confined to earth.If anyone deserved to go to YOUR hell it was certainly Satan.Cant explain that?Use your peace and $$$ sign.

What was Satan showing Jesus when he asked him for an act of worship?His tomato garden?

Jesus never disagreed when Satan showed him all the kingdoms of the world.Seems like the scripture in John is pretty dead on accurate.Eh?

Just how petty do you have to be to stop all programs by your predecessor just because he is who he is?   :monkey::(

Never mind how much if harms the country and the citizens therein.  :o

You get my drift?
