The United States should build a canal more than twice or more the size of Panama’s between Brownsville and San Diego, while expediting the wall. Panama’s canal is now under PRC’s control. The military and commercial benefits of an American Canal between Brownsville and San Diego would be enormous, quite apart from its use as a barrier to migrant invasion. The American Canal would pass right by the GREATEST OIL STRIKE IN HISTORY, on federal lands in the Permian Basin of Texas and would compound many times over the benefits of the strike. It would help make America more the “middle kingdom” than China ever was. It would pay for itself in short order while blocking migration from south of the border.
Of paramount importance is the strategic advantage of an American Canal linking the major oceans, enabling the deployment and redeployment of American and allied military assets world-wide. If there were no other benefit and cost were ten times greater and not recoverable, this strategic advantage would make the American Canal worth the of Panama’s canal in establishing an American world order. That’s by the by, as stupid Presidents have given control of the canal away, enabling the enemy to cut the American Navy in two.
But the commercial benefits of the American Canal are also compelling.
It would vastly improve shipping routes between Asia and Oceania on the one hand and Europe and Africa on the other. Oil could be shipped around the world from the GREATEST OIL STRIKE IN HISTORY, on federal lands in the Permian Basin of Texas, without having to go through troubled waters like the Persian Gulf, the Strait of Hormuz, the Gulf of Oman and the South China Sea. This would help avoid military conflict. Take for example the tankers that were attacked in the Gulf of Oman taking non-Iranian oil to Japan. Had the American Canal been in operation, they could have filled up with oil in the American Canal and it would have been a straight shot through the Canal across the Pacific to Japan. The supply of good sweet cheap oil would be ample. There is no need to ship non-Iranian oil through the Persian Gulf, the Strait of Hormuz, or the Gulf of Oman. For those who want to buy non-Iranian oil from the Middle East, it can be sent by pipe, truck or rail to an Israeli port and shipped from there. While arrangements for that are being made, and the American Canal is being built, oil can come from the GREATEST OIL STRIKE IN HISTORY, on federal lands in the Permian Basin of Texas, through Panama’s canal when convenient, with plans to conquer Panama if the chinks are about to try anything.
Upon Trump’s election, federal lands were opened to oil exploration that had been blocked by the queer bastard communist Quisling pretender Barack Hussein Obama II d.o.b. 4 August 1961.
Quickly thereafter came the GREATEST OIL STRIKE IN HISTORY, no, not just the greatest in American history, the GREATEST OIL STRIKE IN HISTORY, on federal lands in the Permian Basin of Texas.
And soon after that, within a year or so, the United States became a net oil exporter for the first time in many years. In 2018 it became the world’s top oil producer. By now it’s probably the world’s top oil exporter.

Oil is the largest item in international commerce. Once it was tea. Now it’s oil. Return of the petrodollar, this time on the basis of American oil, not Saudi Arabian.
Hardly anybody noticed these events or their implications, certainly not the dumbasses in the mass media. Oh, some passing puzzled references to “increased American oil production”, but never the slightest suggestion that this just might be the result of the GREATEST OIL STRIKE IN HISTORY, on federal lands in the Permian Basin of Texas, a hoot and a holler from Brownsville with its harbor and huge refineries, and the American Canal connecting the world’s major oceans.
The American Canal will pay for itself in short order while blocking mass migration from south of the border, vastly improving trade routes between Asia and Oceania on the one hand and Europe and Africa on the other, and providing enormous strategic advantage by facilitating the deployment and redeployment of American and allied military assets world-wide. The profit from the American Canal can be used to buy European and other ports out of foreclosure by China, and gold, lots and lots ‘n’ lotsa gold.
Imagine, dear reader, the traffic through the American Canal. Super tankers, cargo ships, aircraft carriers and other naval vessels, giant cruise liners and residential ships, various and sundry super yachts and myriads of boats and ships for pleasure, delivery from shipyards, and matters of official business. The United States might resume ownership of a yacht. The cash flow from tolls would be huge. Passengers and crew would disembark at various points for shopping, dining, entertainment and medical care north of the Canal. There would be essentially a linear city there. A very high berm along the south side, from the excavation of the Canal, would be further protection against the enemies south of the border. For nearly a century the United States of America bent over backwards to be a good neighbor, but Estados Unidos Mexicanos would have none of it. So be that way and be damned. Mexico has never accepted the loss of territory to the United States in the mid-19th century. There’s no point in arguing about it. Have it your way, Mexico, just stay out of ours.
Imagine, also, how much more effective the American Canal would be than a wall in blocking mass migration from south of the border.
There is much wailing and gnashing of teeth about the economic infeasibility of an American Canal across the United States of America. Some seem to think the route must cross every high mountain range there is. Au contraire, mein Herr. The route would largely track the border with Mexico, where the land tends to be relatively level and low, so few if any locks would be needed, maybe one to accommodate the tides. Some of the excavation has already been done by the Rio Grande. Tidal action and dredging might be used to deepen the bed. Giant tunneling machines, such as are used to open underground roadways and other subterranean spaces, would need to be only partly in the ground and throw up a huge berm on the south side to be a further defense against incursions from Mexico by mass migration and military forces. As land for the Canal and a redirected Rio Grande north of the Canal and parallel to it would be taken under the war power, no compensation would be required. If nevertheless given, it could be in the form of war bonds and other land in the West. 85% of land in the West is (unfairly) held by the federal government, so there should be plenty to go around.
