An episode of the 1950s western TV series ‘Trackdown’ featured a character named Walter Trump who claimed he would build a wall in order to protect a town from the end of the world.
Nearly 60 years ago, an episode of a TV showed called “Trackdown” told the story of a man named Trump who warns people that the world will be destroyed and that only he can save them… by building a wall.
Check out the video below to see the bizarre coincidence for yourself:
Decades before The Simpsons predicted a President Trump, an obscure CBS Western from the 1950s called Trackdown featured a man who claimed he could prevent the end of the world by building a wall. The man’s name was Walter Trump, and he shares a number of similarities with the president-elect.
As pointed out by Snopes, in the episode “The End of the World,” which aired on May 8, 1958, the mysterious Trump was a confidence man, decked out in a cultish robe, who arrived in the town of Talpa and, “tells the townspeople that a cosmic explosion will rain fire on the town and that he is the only one that can save them from death.” The wall he wanted to build was designed to keep out certain doom, of course, but his mere presence arouses suspicion from some of the locals.
Trump’s plan never comes to fruition, and he’s eventually brought to justice by the show’s hero, Texas Ranger Hoby Gilman, for grand theft and fraud. YouTube user Marcy Brafman uploaded portions of the episode on November 4, 2016, just four days before the presidential election.
In what appears to be an effort to allow unchecked border crossing in the final two month of his presidency, Obama’s DHS has shut down the a critical Border aerial surveillance program despite the fact that the program was fully funded for Fiscal Year 2017 by Congress.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott went the extra mile to post on twitter: “Obama is doing everything he can to open the border. January 20 can’t come soon enough.”
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security quietly shut down Operation Phalanx, an aerial surveillance program that intercepts drugs and illegal crossings along the Mexican border.
Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Laredo, vows to challenge DHS’s move, saying Congress provided “full funding” for 2017.
Cuellar, a member of the House Appropriations Committee and the Homeland Security Subcommittee, is drafting a letter to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson protesting the shutdown.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and Cuellar challenged Johnson last February when DHS reduced Phalanx’s flight operations.
This time, Cuellar is seeking reinforcements from Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, and Reps. Mike McCaul, R-San Antonio, and John Carter, R-Round Rock.
Cornyn sits on the Senate Judiciary Subcommittees on Immigration, Refugees and Border Security and the Terrorism, Technology and Homeland Security panel. McCaul chairs the Homeland Security Committee in the House and Carter chairs the Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee.
Abbott’s office declined to comment; Cornyn and Carter did not respond to requests for comment.

A 2015 Nissan Tsuru, made in Mexico, goes head on with a 2016 Nissan Versa made in the US.
“They don’t make ’em like they used to.” Chances are, you’ve heard that before. And thank goodness they don’t.
Case in point, the Nissan Tsuru – a common sight in Mexico as taxicabs, the Tsuru is essentially a ‘new’ 1992 Sentra. It’s cheap, simple, and as the U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety shows, has the ability to turn into a four-wheeled accordion in the event of a crash.
The IIHS collaborated with the Latin and Global NCAP groups to show how a Mexican market-spec 2015 Nissan Tsuru would fare against a U.S.-spec 2016 Nissan Versa sedan, all in a bid to not only highlight the differences between U.S. and Mexican automotive safety requirements, but to also get cars with zero-star crash test ratings – like the Tsuru – off Mexican roads.
To say the least, the results are alarming. Both cars were travelling at 40 mph, or just over 64 km/h. While the Versa‘s airbags and structure do a formidable job in keeping the dummy relatively unscathed, we definitely can’t say the same about the Tsuru. Let’s just say, after seeing how the Tsuru’s A-pillar deforms so quickly, a steering wheel flying off is the last thing we’d worry about.
According to the NCAP, more than 4,000 fatalities in Mexico were linked to Nissan Tsuru crashes between 2007 and 2012.
Isn’t the Internet wonderful? Here is a video of Hillary Clinton saying the United States needs to secure their border and put a wall up to keep all the people from Mexico from coming over and deport those that are already here.
Thursday marks the ten-year anniversary of the day Hillary Clinton voted in favor of building a 700-mile fence along the Mexican border, intended to stop illegal immigration.
The Secure Fence Act of 2006’s stated purpose was to check the flow of illegal immigrants, drugs, and other illegal goods into the U.S. by erecting a double-layer fence along large swaths of the border. The law also generally increased funding for border security, authorizing funds for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to purchase cameras, drones, and other assets.
At the time, Hillary Clinton said the law was the only possible fix to a seemingly endless torrent of illegal immigrants entering the U.S.
“There isn’t any sensible approach except to do what we need to do simultaneously: you know, secure our borders with technology and personnel, physical barriers if necessary in some places,” she told the Council on Foreign Relations.
Texas Rancher Finds Urdu-to-English Dictionary Near The Border
Texas rancher Mike Vickers found an Urdu-to-English dictionary on his property near the Mexican border. Urdu is the official language of Pakistan, and is spoken by Muslims in India and parts of Afghanistan.
Here is a thought that should make Liberal heads explode and fascinate conspiracy theorists. What if Barack Hussein Obama created this crisis so that he could build an army and disperse it all over the Untied States. Some of the kids in the picture below don’t look all that harmless. If fact, some look like they know how to handle an AK-47.
I’m Just Sayin’
While local ranchers have to contend with torn-up fences, broken water lines, contaminated wells and robbery on a daily basis from illegal immigrants streaming through, a Texas Border Patrol agent told TheBlaze there is “no doubt” that among the hordes of Central Americans are also crossers from Pakistan and Afghanistan, raising significant national security concerns.
“We have limited resources,” said the agent, who was not authorized to speak publicly. “It’s frustrating for all of us and there’s no doubt that we have OTMs [Other Than Mexicans] coming from Pakistan, Afghanistan, Somalia and other parts of the world that we are very concerned with — these guys won’t be turning themselves into Border Patrol like the family units or children. I expect we’ll see more the OTMs of special interest this year and next, now that they know they can get in easier and they won’t be turned back home.”
Urdu, the national language of Pakistan, is also spoken in parts of Afghanistan and India. People coming from these parts of the world are considered persons of special interest because of their potential connections to extremist groups in those regions, the agent said.
“We’ve found Korans, prayer rugs and many other unusual items at the border that certainly raise concern,” the agent said.
