To the Democratic National Committee elites, keeping average Americans away from their convention is a good idea, while protecting the southern border from intruding terrorists, rapists and murderers is a bad one.

The DNC has erected a four-mile fence around its convention site at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center. (Isn’t it ironic they’re doing so much to protect a site named after a bank?)

The fence, which appears to be about 8 feet tall, is intended to keep out any individuals with whom Democratic Party leaders, delegates and other liberal elites would rather not mingle.

Fox 29’s Steve Keeley shared a picture of a portion of the fence he said was erected near the intersection of Pattison and Broad.

Here’s another shot from a CNN Headline News report:

Twitter user @brokencarpenter visited the DNC border wall and noted there was “acres and acres and acres of fence.”

    So Democrats are temporarily banning good people from having access because of the threat of a few bad people who wish to harm them.

    Huh, we should try that with Muslims entering our country. Thanks for the idea, dems!

  • copperdog1

    Let’s read some of the email out loud. Rush and Kelly and Hannity need to get some of them. Put them out there for all to see. This not national security here. Will HRC say she didn’t know that they were on her private server, hidden In the Clinton Foundation basement closet. No wonder Bernie turned Pro Hillary. He don’t care about those “d” emails. Or he protecting his life…..
    The fence is to keep out Bern’s people

    Four legs good, two legs baaaaaad.

    How ironic, Mexico is considering building a wall on their southern border to keep Central Americans from illegally entering Mexico.

  • well since the dems want gun control lets make the dnc convention a gun free zone no guns allowed by anyone at the site and no police allowed either dnc can get along w/out any kind of protection since that is what they want for the rest of us what better placee to practice what they preach?

  • Susie

    Just sayin, dont be so one sided both had equal protection, with so many high profile people it place its needed no matter who is it. stop with the stupidity

    • ProfElwood

      No one would be making much of a fuss at all if it weren’t for the hypocrisy of the situation. Democrats have been bashing Trump on walls (while living in gated communities), bashing the police for imagined racism (while calling for police to protect them while they bash their protectors), and against gun control while surrounding themselves with armed guards. Obviously they love walls, police, and guns for themselves, but not their subjects.

      • Tom

        Spot on, Professor!!!!

    • MMMMMIKE

      You can “stop with the stupidity” anytime you want by not posting anymore.

      Republicans are FOR border walls and fences to keep America safer.
      democrats are AGAINST border walls and fences to get more voters.

      Hence the fun we are having at the democrats expense.

  • rottenrollin

    Anyone know number of police required to “keep the peace” at the Republican Convention versus this Democrat Convention?

  • Steven Walter

    The Christian Taliban is who they are trying to keep out. They are really, really dangerous.

  • Jordan Madama

  • Greg Thomas

    Hypocrites! I though fences didn’t work!!!

  • Marie R

    Aren’t they the ones who don’t want a wall?

  • AntiqueJenkum

    What do “DNC” stand for?… The Dindu Nuffin Convention???…

  • GBS

    I did not know the Philly zoo was looking to expand.

    • MMMMMIKE

      They weren’t looking to…..it just happened.

  • Robert Travis

    I guess the riot leaders, like Michael Brown’s mom are welcome, just not the rioters they bring with them.

  • Larry I. Lund

    Shameless. Not the least bit embarrassed to exclude non-selected individuals to their private party. It hardly gets any more circus like than a Hillary train. Send in the Clowns….

  • rottenrollin

    Bruce should write a song about this……….. perhaps entitled:

    The Fence of Philadelphia………..

    “I walked a thousand miles
    To get around this fence
    And enter the DNC Convention
    Even if it lacks all sense…….

    On the streets of Philadelphia”

  • Not Gersh Kuntzman

    Philadelphia is about as blue as a city can get.

    Why are Democrats putting up a fence to keep out other Democrats?

    • MMMMMIKE

      They have an income inequality standard to up hold.

  • The Bunny Suit Killer

    The end of the Cold War is in sight and communism will finally soon be defeated!

  • Dawn

    They can knock that wall down very easily…What was Killary thinking?…

  • Anthony Porreca

    How Pothetic .
    I’m live in Philly and have never seen a freakin fence around the stadium or the one that stood before this one was biult.
    What hypocritical assholes.
    Especially the ones bold enough to stand behind the name democracy.
    Just goes to show the disconnect and lieing class they are.

  • daveveselenak

    You know it’s over folks when nearly half of the “TRANSGENDERED & TRANSFORMED” AMERIKA is willing to commit political suicide by voting for this ole ugly commie whore that should only be running, along with her former pimp the Muslim-Marxist jihadist in the “Outhouse”, for the (border?) to escape facing a firing squad for treason! REVOLUTION will be the SOLUTION – guaranteed!

        Hardly, it is the truth!

        • FEMA Camp Administrator

          More low income republican logic.

          • daveveselenak

            Here is some logic that is way over your head, Lefty!
            Mike Adams writes brilliantly about the state of the State – this is what we would be hearing if we had a free press:
            (NaturalNews) Regardless of your political affiliation, this is a must-read article because it describes in raw, naked detail how the FBI / DOJ justice scam really operates in America. Remember, thanks to the absolute corruption of Washington D.C., “justice” really means “just us.” In other words, the politically connected elite write laws and carry out the selective prosecution of laws solely to serve their own self-interest.
            And if you’re not part of the politically connected elite, you’re automatically guilty and will sooner or later be prosecuted under some wildly exaggerated, arcane rendition of a law that’s never applied to people like Hillary Clinton.
            Here’s exactly how the FBI and DOJ carry out their “justice theater” that’s essentially nothing more than gross injustice that exists in violation of the rule of law.

            Step 1: Generate hundreds of thousands of laws and regulations that ensnare anyone who might be targeted for scrutiny
            The first step in achieving selecting prosecution is to pass so many laws that no human being can possibly be innocent of them all.

            Read the book Three Felonies a Day to learn the startling truth that the average American unknowingly commits three felony crimes each day (thanks to all the insane laws on the books).
            The point is that no ordinary person can survive scrutiny without being arrested, prosecuted and jailed.

            Step 2: Practice selective prosecution to target your political enemies while looking the other way for your political friends
            Since everybody is guilty of three felonies a day, the job of the politically-motivated FBI or DOJ simply becomes one of choosing whom to target.
            Since every person in America can be brought up on criminal charges if their actions are sufficiently scrutinized, the goal of criminalizing the government’s enemies is achieved in the simplest manner possible: Focusing surveillance and scrutiny on those individuals the political regime wants to imprison.
            And now that the federal government has all your financial records, email records, search engine queries, web surfing activities and even your careless social media posts, they can easily easily link you to any number of crimes you unknowingly committed by violating the multitude of confusing laws you didn’t even know existed.
            While people like Hillary Clinton get away with treason by claiming they “didn’t mean to do it,” when the FBI comes knocking on your door, they’ll calmly explain to you that “ignorance of the law is no excuse.”
            See, laws are for the little people like you and me… not for the Washington elite.

            Step 3: If your political friends happen to get caught breaking the law, refuse to prosecute them… problem solved!
            Despite the best efforts of the corrupted mainstream media to cover up the criminal behavior of the political establishment, every once in a while some member of the political elite gets caught engaging in a violation of law that’s so heinous, it can’t be swept under the rug.
            What to do in such situations? Just “pull a James Comey” and announce to the world that you refuse to prosecute the person who violated those laws. After all, prosecutorial discretion means that “career prosecutors” who work for DOJ can decide to ignore the criminality of all their friends.
            And who are their friends? Remember that all the prosecutors who work for DOJ are paid by the government. They know where their paychecks come from, and they fully realize that if they ever attempted to prosecute someone with sufficient power in government, their own careers would be destroyed.
            Thus, the primary function of the DOJ becomes one of suppressing the sheeple while protecting the criminal class of Washington political operatives.

            Step 4: Arm up all federal departments with military weapons while calling for the complete disarmament of the population
            Another important step in accelerating the FBI / DOJ war against the American people is to call for the mass disarmament of the citizenry while ramping up the paramilitary wings of every major government agency with a huge influx of military weapons.
            Today, right now, the EPA runs its own paramilitary organization, complete with weapons of war to be trained upon U.S. citizens. From Circanews.com:
            The U.S. Agriculture Department’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service doesn’t seem like a Wild West sort of federal agency since its biologists mostly check on the human health impact of animal and plant species.
            But it reported buying $4.7 million in high-powered weapons, ammunition and military gear during the last decade, including shotguns, night vision goggles, and propane cannons, according to federal purchasing records reviewed by the nonpartisan government spending watchdog openthebooks.com.
            It turns out that U.S. federal agencies are spending between $150 million and $200 million per year on military gear and weapons. While this is happening, the very same government criminals who are granted selective immunity against prosecution for treasonous acts are all over the mainstream media calling for the complete disarmament of the population.
            All the guns in America, it turns out, belong solely in the hands of the government… according to government. Funny how that always leads to genocide and tyranny, isn’t it?

            Step 5: To sweep up even more citizens into prosecutions, plot acts of domestic terrorism, then recruit low-IQ citizens who you then “catch” in the act
            Here’s an irrefutable fact about the FBI that very few people realize is true: The agency routinely plans domestic terrorism attacks and draws up the plans and equipment to carry them out. FBI agents then run around the bad parts of town, recruiting hapless (and sometimes even HOMELESS) victims to carry out those acts of terrorism so they can be conveniently “caught in the act.”
            Right before the bomb goes off, the FBI swoops in and declares victory for “stopping domestic terrorism.” Yet, in all these cases, it was the FBI that masterminded the acts of terror in the first place.
            We have extensively documented this fraudulent phenomenon here on Natural News, including in this article review of the book “The Terrorist Factory: Inside the FBI’s Manufactured War on Terror.” The New York Times has ever covered the FBI’s fake terror plots, believe it or not.
            Also, check out these stories: FBI intercepts its own terrorist plot against US Capitol, Pentagon and FBI halts terror plot dreamed up by the FBI, then claims victory against terrorism.
            Like almost everything else done by the fraudulent federal government in America, the FBI is mostly a theatrical production company engaged in elaborate street theater. We now know that most of the so-called “crimes” that are halted by the FBI actually consist of drugged-out patsies who were recruited by the FBI to carry out FBI-inspired terror attacks. Meanwhile, any actual criminals who commit actual crimes — like Hillary Clinton — are given a free pass even when their crimes violate national security.
            The FBI, much like the DOJ and every other federal agency, has become a joke… a hollow shadow of its former self and the laughing stock of informed citizens everywhere. The public perception now is that the only crimes the FBI seems to be able to stop are those crimes its own agents dreamed up in the first place. Yet the agency can’t seem to nail the worst criminals of all… the ones in power in Washington who commit the most heinous crimes against the entire nation by selling out the White House to foreign interests.

            Why the citizens are nearing REVOLT
            This is how it all works today in the corrupt America we are all desperately trying to save from sinking into despotism. The rule of law has been abandoned everywhere in Washington, and now the agencies of the federal government clearly exist for no other reason than to consolidate power in Washington, no matter what methods of tyranny and totalitarianism must be unleashed against the citizenry.
            Those citizens, it turns out, are nearing a state of mass revolt. The obvious criminality in Washington has gone too far. The cover-ups are too numerous. The weaponization of government against innocent people is modeled after totalitarian regimes that almost always end in genocide. Today in America, there are journalists who sit in prison for no reason other than the fact that the government did not like what they reported. There are ranchers in prison who were convicted of the same “crime” the BLM carries out routinely (accidentally burning too much acreage in a controlled burn of rural ranch land). There are whistleblowers in prison who tried to warn the public, but the Obama administration has prosecuted more whistleblowers than all the other presidential administrations combined… across the entire history of America.
            The last straw is now the government’s brazen attempt to completely disarm the citizenry — an effort aided by the truly retarded verbal grunts of Hollywood morons like Matt Damon (who now insists that only government officials should have guns, not citizens). This effort will be accelerated in the near future with larger and more numerous false flag shootings, staged by the same theatrical production agencies that already stage fake terror plots to claim victory for “stopping terrorism.” Do you think you know the real story of the Sandy Hook massacre? Watch this video to learn about the ACTORS who played key roles as both parents and FBI swat team members (yes, the same guy plays both roles in all the media coverage).

            Elaborate theater to weave a prison for your mind
            It’s all theater, friends. The media, the FBI, the DOJ, the U.S. Senate, the Federal Reserve and even the rule of law. It’s all elaborate theater carried out as a prison for your mind, to keep you occupied, confused and manipulated so that you never figure out the greater truth that threatens the entire corrupt establishment.
            What greater truth is that? The simple fact that all government power is granted by the People and can be instantly taken away by the People with nothing more than a consensus decision. Government and the rule of law exist as nothing more than consensus mental constructs — structural delusions of the mind that are widely shared and thus believed to be real. But government can collapse in an instant when the fraudulent promises of government suddenly collapse in the minds of the populace. Hence the need for drastic, elaborate financial theater to create the illusion of a booming economy even as we teeter on the verge of global, systemic economic collapse.
            (By the way, “faith” in fiat currency is also a mental construct that can be shattered in an instant. The only reason another person accepts your green paper dollars as money is because you both share a false believe in the agreed-upon underlying value of the digits printed in cheap ink on near-worthless fiber. If that illusion of value is shattered in both your minds, dollars immediately collapse into worthlessness because they have no tangible value. All fiat money systems are run entirely on FAITH… and faith is fleeting when it comes to money.)

            The illusion of government power depends on the continued indoctrination and intimidation of the enslaved masses
            Those who run government fully realize that they are a tiny minority who rule only by fiat. Their rule depends entirely on the masses believing in the delusions played in for their minds by the ruling elite. If that delusion were to ever be shattered and the people realized how they were being fraudulently manipulated and exploited, the political elite wouldn’t survive even 24 hours (and there would be a dire shortage of rope in the D.C. area in particular).
            That’s the bigger, deeper picture of what’s really happening around you right now. You are living in a nation that’s run by a corrupt, criminal elite who carry out campaigns of elaborate delusion to enslave and manipulate the clueless masses who keep robotically voting for their very own slave masters. Any person who attempts to free the slaves is deemed an enemy of the state and is subjected to selective prosecutorial scrutiny to have them imprisoned (as described above).
            In fact, the only reason I am still allowed to function as a relatively free citizen in this nation is because my articles simply aren’t popular enough to warrant the effort of oppression. I’m relatively safe, in other words, because my reach is so tiny compared to the mainstream media. Interestingly, that also means that you who are reading this are among the top 1% of the most informed individuals in the world. You are reading and learning about these eye opening, fundamental truths that 99% of the population will never encounter (partly because the 99% don’t have the mental fortitude to even face reality in the first place, since believing in popular fairy tales requires no real effort… and besides, there are Oreo cookies that need licking, right?).
            As long as the system can continue to censor my message and keep it restricted to less than 1% of the population — via Google and Facebook censorship, mostly — then I will be “allowed” to continue my work because it doesn’t legitimately threaten the establishment in any serious way. But if my message ever somehow explodes in popularity and breaks through 10% of the population, then I would be in serious danger and would be silenced in one way or another. Remember, selective prosecution can target ANYONE and indict them for unknowingly committing three felonies a day.
            Have no fear, however: My message of truth is not of much interest to 99% of the population. They are far too happy in their Golden Corral, GMO-infested junk food eat-a-thon fairy tale illusions to ever bother investigating reality. There is virtually zero risk to the establishment that my words will ever be embraced by more than a tiny fraction of the population. Deep truth, it seems, has never really been that popular in delusional societies.

You do realize that if you cross into Mexico illegally, you are going to be arrested and put in jail for a very long time, right?

    As a 20 year Season Ticket Holder to Flyers and Sixers. To place a fence from Broad and Pattison to To Ramps to I-95. Is roughly 3/4 mile.

    To install a 4 mile fence to encompass the Wells Fargo Center would end up goon East into the Delaware River….North to Broad and Federal Street…West to West Most Runway for PHL…South would lead into he Ship Yard and into The Delaware River.

    There would also be several major roads, Food distribution center, ten thousand homes..
