A more than 1,300-foot underground passageway stretching from Arizona to Mexico was recently discovered — with the feds calling it “the most sophisticated tunnel in US history.”The unfinished tunnel — which ran from San Luis, Arizona, to neighboring San Luis Rio Colorado in Mexico — had a ventilation system, water lines, electrical wiring, a rail system and extensive reinforcement, Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Thursday.“This appears to be the most sophisticated tunnel in U.S. history, and certainly the most sophisticated I’ve seen in my career,” said Carl E. Landrum, acting chief patrol agent

Was it build with US dollars sent back to Mexico ? Throw a stick of dynamite in it.

El Chapo's tunnel with access to his prison cell was better, IMO. However, it didn't extend into the US.

Everything that Mexicans build is done with US Dollars. Sixty years of the War on Drugs has turned our tens of thousands of addicts into a protected class that is now supported by taxpayer dollars so they can keep their link to Mexico intact and their bodies filled with poison. You want to stop the drug trade? Clean out the homeless camps and the inner city ghetto gangs. As a bonus, the murder of black children will simultaneously stop.

Where there is one smuggling tunnel you can bet that there are more. The truth be known those tunnels were most likely built from the USA side of the borderline down into Mexico, as a construction job on the USA side of the borderline would not engender much attention, especially in a Mexican neighborhood that makes money directly and indirectly from all sorts of borderline smuggling activities.

#1, "a stick of dynamite" would do extremely little damage. That tunnel needs about 3 or four truckloads of high explosives, planted very carefully into drilled holes along the length of the tunnel by experts. THEN set it off. Preferably, they should have planted the charges so that they weren't visible and waited until the tunnel was filled with people and goods.....THAN detonate it.

My doctor prescribed it. My pharmacy had it. Took it that day and within two to three days I was able to breathe,” Vallone told The Post. “Within a week I was back on my feet.”

Ronald Reagan famously observed nearly sixty years ago: "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same[.]" The man could say so much with so few words. (1) Freedom is an idea; (2) it belongs to anyone wise enough to recognize its value irrespective of race, color, or creed; and (3) it will be endlessly threatened at all times by those opposed to liberty.Three generations later, and Reagan's warning is uncomfortably prescient.

After NBC News reported Thursday that Brennan agreed to do an interview with Durham, signaling that his investigation is nearing its end, a lawyer familiar with the situation told NPR that the Obama-era CIA director has been told he is not a target of prosecutors. Instead, this source said, the interview will mainly consist of technical questions. The news is sure to disappoint some of President Trump's most ardent supporters who believe Brennan and other top officials in the Obama administration

Johns said she replaced it with a different mask — but then had another tense conversation with the flight attendant.

On Tuesday night, President Trump announced that U.S. Attorney John Durham had uncovered “breathtaking” evidence about the “corrupt” Russia hoax. That might just have been Trump puffing, except for the fact that the Trump campaign also released a new video hinting that the Democrats, from Obama on down, are going to be in trouble. (snip) Keep in mind that Donald Trump ran a hugely successful reality show. He understands the importance of a narrative arc for any successful broadcast. If Durham’s report had broken six months ago, it would have been old news by the summer. Worse, the media would have explained away almost everything and deep-sixed what it couldn’t explain.

Friday is the official start of the 80th annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, where 250,000 people are expected to gather in the South Dakota town of that name for nine days of defying proven precautions against the spread of COVID-19. “Nobody is social distancing and none of them are wearing masks,” local psychologist Michael Fellner told The Daily Beast. “None.” Fellner is originally from Brooklyn in New York City, which was once the nation’s COVID-19 epicenter but has just reported three straight days without a single death from the virus. The transformation is almost certainly the result of the same precautions the bikers in Sturgis are ignoring.

The Seattle City Council voted unanimously on Wednesday in support of police budget proposals that would lay off 100 police officers, despite objections from the city's mayor and police chief. The city council began to reexamine the police department's budget earlier this summer in response to anti-police protests. Mayor Jenny Durkan (D.) and police chief Carmen Best criticized the most recent set of proposals, which would also end the removal of homeless people from the city's streets and cut salaries for police leadership. Durkan said the cuts would hit the "most diverse class" of officers the city has ever had, as police union rules mandate that layoffs are determined by seniority.
