This wall has been one of the biggest distractions by the Trump operations of all times. Of course Trump lied through his teeth that Mexico will pay for this thing
“The dishonest media does not report that any money spent on building the Great Wall (for sake of speed), will be paid back by Mexico later”!
-Donald Trump (Source Twitter)
… and if you believe that I’ve got a ‘wall’ on the moon I’ll sell you.
What’s interesting to note about this ‘so-called’ wall, is that the democrats seem to show zero signs of wanting to stop the use of tax payer money to build it. One has to ask why.
Here is the link to Trump’s DARPA ‘Cyber Security industrial complex‘ (The virtual wall) being rolled out upon USA blog post with is being updated constantly.
However, the reader should read my original blog post on this issue. Donald Trump has only verified what I posted about his ‘so-called’ wall back in 2016.
Before reading this, let’s not forget that stocks for military contractors sky rocketed once Trump had won the election.
The Lexington Institute  is a military industrial complex ‘think tank’ that has been advocating for the newly elected Trump administration.
The idea of building a wall around the entire United States is not necessarily a nationalist or patriotic idea. In fact, the military industrial complex has been wanting to build ‘a wall’ around the entire United States for quite some time. However, in the 21st century, ‘the wall’ that the military complex is wanting to build is of the ‘virtual’ variety, NOT the physical kind at all.
Daniel Gouré, Lexington Institute: Vice President Wants Trump To Build The Military Industrial Complex A ‘Digital’ Wall Around The USA.
First, check out who these military industrialists are, who advocate for President Trump … Can you say Neocons 2.0?
“Daniel Gouré is vice president of the Lexington Institute, a conservative, defense-oriented think tank that is closely tied to military contractors. A past adviser to the neoconservative Center for Security Policy and a letter signatory for the now defunct Project for the New American Century, Gouré is a persistent advocate of large U.S. military budgets, a modernized nuclear arsenal, and expensive “missile defense” programs. He comments frequently on military and defense issues on his Lexington Institute blog and in various media appearances.
Gouré is a proponent of the notion, espoused by many American exceptionalists and other military interventionists, that the United States has a unique role to play by asserting itself militarily overseas. “Unlike other countries,” he wrote in April 2014, “the United States needs to be able to project military power at great distances, rapidly and into multiple regions of the world.”
Military Industrialist Daniel Gouré Want’s Trump To Build The Military Industrial Complex a ‘Digital’ Wall
“Donald Trump catapulted to the top of the list of Republican presidential candidates based on his stance on illegal immigration and, in particular, his call to build a wall along the U.S. southern border and somehow make Mexico pay for it. Trump has taken an enormous amount of “flack” for his views on immigration policy and some for his proposal to build a wall.
While the idea of controlling our borders is a good one, building a 1200 mile wall is the wrong way to achieve this objective. A physical barrier along the length of the U.S.-Mexico border would be expensive, difficult to maintain and by itself ultimately ineffective. Without continuous surveillance of the fence itself, and appropriate, agile and informed response forces, even the greatest physical barrier can be circumvented. In addition, a physical fence would not be feasible along much of the northern border with Canada. Other measures and technologies will be required. In the end, they are likely to be both more effective and efficient, reducing the overall cost for securing the border.
The right approach is to build a digital wall consisting primarily of land-based sensors supported by airborne and at-sea ISR assets. This system would not only detect actual attempts to cross into the U.S. and track people, vehicles, aircraft, drones and boats, but could look across the borders and out to sea to provide early warning of hostile activities. Over time, it would provide persistent surveillance and in-depth knowledge of the physical and human environments on both sides of the border. An integrated surveillance system along the entire border would provide tactical intelligence to Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents and aerial units and strategic intelligence to a host of government agencies at the state and federal levels.
Such a system already exists. Israel has built an integrated, multispectral digital surveillance system along each of its borders, including westward into the Mediterranean. Yes, there are fences. But these are primarily to prevent inadvertent border crossings and to provide evidence of hostile intent. The fences themselves have intrusion detection sensors. The heart of this digital wall is an array of sensors – radar, cameras, motion and electronic emissions detectors – that surveils everything that moves along the border on land, sea and in the air including aircraft, drones, boats, vehicles, individuals and even animals.
I recently saw this system in operation along Israel’s border with Gaza. At a base several miles from the border, in a command center filled with work stations, young Israeli soldiers watch a defined sector of the border. Sophisticated radars provide persistent surveillance and initial detection day/night and in all kinds of weather. When something is detected, high resolution optical sensors are employed to more accurately determine the object’s identity. The soldiers watching on their screens can call on additional assets, including mobile patrols and even robots, to track or intercept the potential threat. They also can send live video directly to patrols along the border. The number of sensors and their operating ranges in each sector depend on that area’s specific physical characteristics. The Israeli Air Force and Navy provide equally sophisticated surveillance of their respective domains shared with the land forces as needed.
The Department of Homeland Security tried other ways of watching the borders, primarily using sensors in aircraft and drones, with little success. Now, after several false starts (anyone remember the Secure Border Initiative?), CBP last year began a project to build a series of electronic surveillance positions – Integrated Fixed Towers (IFTs) – along the Arizona-Mexico border. Data from the IFTs and other sensor systems will be fed into command and control centers. Together with remote sensors, airborne surveillance and mobile patrols with mast-borne radar and optical systems on their vehicles, the result could be similar to that achieved by the Israeli border surveillance system. It should be noted that Israeli radar systems are a critical component of the IFT surveillance suite.
The IFT program, if properly deployed and employing the right suite of sensors could minimize the need for massive, field barriers or walls. Groups of illegal immigrants or drug smugglers, even single individuals, aircraft, drones, ultralights and boats, could be detected well before they reached the border and tracked when they cross, allowing CBP to plan their interception.
Candidate Trump should promise that on his first day in office he will sign an executive order directing the Department of Homeland Security to begin a Manhattan-style project to build a digital wall along all our borders. Physical barriers still will be needed, particularly in highly populated areas, in order to manage the rate at which people and vehicles cross the border. But like with Israel, most of the border will need only a simple fence backed up by a full array of sensors.” 
The idea of a virtual wall goes back to Trump’s neocon friends in the military industrial complex ‘Full Spectrum Dominance’.
