Following through on another election promise, the Trump Team has been working hard on simplifying the puzzle palace that is Washington.
Paying 50 politicians to do the same job does not make sense
Team insiders with strong business experience want to downsize the number of politicians. “We have politicians from 50 states and their staff who are doing the same job and it does not make sense. Washington is not a state so losing jobs there won’t count, but the money saved will.”
They will organize the states into 14 groups. This could reduce government legislation costs by as much as 70% and cut through miles of bureaucratic red tape.
Draining the Swamp in Washington will help kick illegals out of the country
The saved money will help move illegals back to Mexico. Their jobs will go to hard working Americans. This plan will double down on Draining the Swamp and making America Strong again. The fun part will be contests on twitter for naming the new state groups – Texasippi has a very nice ring to it.
Canadian government insiders reveal the real reason for P.M. Trudeau’s recent meetings with Chinese business leaders – they are selling him a copy of The Great Wall of China.
It’s not a scam on the original wall, but a molded prefab replica built on the Canada US Border. It will mirror the one to be built on the Mexico US Border – La Gran Muralla.
Partnering with Mexico’s La Gran Muralla project will reduce Canada’s costs
China is doubling down on their expertise in product knock-offs: they’re replicating their own Great Wall. Their plan uses molds cast live on the Great wall which will make building replicas cheap. Mexico has already agreed to build one so there could be considerable cost savings if Canada uses the same molds. (see Mexico’s plan)
Crowd sourcing a wall……. Tolls on the Border
The Mexican project is financed by China and will be paid off through tourism and sponsorship activities. Canada will take a multi level approach to paying for it: Crowd Sourcing, Private Investment, Tolls and Tax Revenues.
Crowd Sourcing for a wall on the Canada US border was posted during the US election. Fears of Donald Trump’s foreign policies motivated a group to build a protective border wall. For a large donation people would have a visual space on the wall where they could place photos, ads, messages. When Google Maps confirmed they could film the wall for their “street view” on maps the donations poured in. These donations could be honored and included in the new plan.
Oil companies will heavily invest in a private transportation source for crude oil
Building with molds means the inside of the wall could be empty – a virtual coast to coast tunnel. Large oil companies are very interested as they could build inner rail lines or a pipeline to transport their crude privately. This would give them the freedom to save a lot of money verses traditional pipelines.
The project already has a catchy name – The Bords
Government insiders say the rest of the money will come from charging tolls at all border crossings and general tax revenues. They propose that the economic boom created by the wall construction will offset the money spent on the wall.
The biggest issue is what will the wall be called. An early favorite plays on the border and a hockey theme – The Bords.
After President Elect Trump’s refusal to back down after recognizing Taiwan as a country China has fought back.
They are formally declaring Hillary Clinton as the true winner of the election because she won the overall popular vote. While Clinton has met with Chinese diplomats over the announcement, it is not clear where this issue will go next. P.E. Trump has not yet tweeted his response.
Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson is angry at property developers who are avoiding the new Vacant Home tax he launched this fall.
When the Tax against foreign ownership was introduced there was an immediate dive in the market that indicated it was working. Read More Vancouver home sales drop nearly 33% in September Now it has been revealed that Sales continued as property developers found a way to avoid the city’s meddling altogether.
The Condo Futures market copied the pork bellies, AirBnB, Bitcoins, Uber
Greedy and creative Vancouver developers mixed virtual reality with commodities and created Condo Futures. Rather than build properties that will owe the tax, they are selling un-built virtual condos. Offshore investors who loved the safety of Canada for their investments, now can avoid all property tax and even maintenance costs.
“The tax really opened our eyes to new possibilities” says a property insider. “we were building for people who had no intention of living in our homes, so why build them? We mixed AirBnB and Uber for renting things they don’t have, Bitcoins for starting their own economy and the Chicago commodities market where people invest in pork bellies that aren’t even born yet”
The result is the continuation of a lucrative market for property developers without adding anything into the economy. Mayor Robertson is furious with the developments but so far there is not much he can do about it. Early warnings against government intervention in free markets may now be ringing true.
Real estate insiders say this may be the fastest growing trend in the business. Only a few large developers are involved with thousand of offshore investors so they have been able to keep it hidden.
China has made Mexico an offer it can’t refuse – build a wall on the border with USA and profit from it.
Recent photos from China reveal they are making molds of the Great Wall of China. The molds will allow them to build Mexico a knock-off wall in a fraction of the costs and time as the original.
China has a long history of counterfeiting things from the west. Now it will be copying its own Great Wall and make a fortune – at America’s expense
The cost saving plan is to fill the inside with trash, stones, and sand, whatever is handy and free for the taking. Then cover it with molded concrete to give the famous “Great Wall” look. They predict this wall will attract huge tourist dollars (Pesos) as it is more accessible than the one in China.
The money making plan is to sell advertising and naming rights to the wall. Some of the worlds biggest companies are scrambling to get naming rights, and buy advertising. The world’s biggest billboard will be visible from from space.
La Gran Muralla is just one piece of a developing China / Mexico Partnership
China, Mexico to deepen comprehensive strategic partnership
…. the two sides to make full use of their complementary advantages, align China’s 13th Five-Year Plan and innovation-driven development with Mexico’s structural reform, and strengthen cooperation in industrial investment, infrastructure, special economic zones, finance, telecommunications, new energy, geo-spacial information and nano technology.
The two sides should facilitate people-to-people exchanges, keep close communication in major international and regional issues, Xi said, expecting Mexico to display its regional influence in advancing China-Latin America relations and building the Forum of China and the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC).

Hosting the Summer Olympics could provide a windfall in the $ billions for the new Mexican wall – La Gran Muralla.
The wall would immediately become the largest event venue in the world. It will attract sporting events including cycling and auto racing, marathons concerts, and festivals.
There is even talk of holding the Olympic Summer Games. This alone would draw revenues in the $ billions. There will be an construction boom in Mexico with hotels, restaurants and shopping centers being built to support the wall activities. They estimate that the 2000 mile wall will generate at least $200,000 per mile yearly based on sponsorship and user fees – not including the major events like world cup of soccer and Formula 1 Racing.
The 2,000 mile wall will be the largest event revenue generator in the world
How does Mexico make Trump pay the price? By pulling their labor out of America!
Using molds and collecting non-traditional building materials allows the wall to be built with more labor than technology.
With initial financing from China, Mexican Government officials believe they can attract some of the millions of Mexicans currently laboring in America with the promise of long term employment with training, fair pay and benefits. This could cripple the American fruit and vegetable harvest which will directly benefit Mexico’s producers.
China also plans on sending over Chinese laborers to get a “western education” while they work on the wall. Mexico will develop as tourist attraction for Chinese tourists. They will control a large part of the business around the wall and gain a large foothold in North America.
Using molds in the construction process means China could replicate their Great Wall design in many locations.
While the wall is expected to pay for itself over the long term – they are doubling down to hard sell Canada on a discounted wall using the same molds. The really huge benefit to China is the economic advantage over America. While America is closing its borders and dealing with the consequences, China is making profitable investments and partnerships worldwide. America may never catch up.
After a long debate we have decided to announce the launch of But iS it?
We wanted to say “Go live” but this is where the argument came in – when are we officially live? Was it when we first conceived the idea? Or when the website started developing? Or would it be when our first post emerged? We couldn’t decide so we agreed to call it a Launch.
If the question was: “What is Entertaining” – we hope to be the answer.
Thanks, The Team – But iS it?
