Per the Daily Caller:

Former President Barack Obama’s Border Patrol chief blamed the disagreement surrounding the border wall on identity politics, during a Friday night interview with Brian Kilmeade on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

Mark Morgan was on Carlson’s show to discuss President Donald Trump’s decision to declare a state of emergency in order to reallocate funds toward constructing a wall along the southern border. Trump received $1.375 billion from the bill that he signed, and intends to dedicate an around $6.5 billion more from other agencies.

“Mark Morgan is the former head of the border patrol. And he’s heard the rhetoric, but he knows the reality. Mark, is the president making up an emergency?” Kilmeade asked.

“Absolutely not,” Morgan responded. “Brian, this is part of the frustration for those of us from a law enforcement, border security perspective. How many more statistics do we have to provide? How many more factually based examples do we have to provide? How many more angel families have to stand in front of some of these individuals before they finally say, ‘Yeah, okay, this is real.’ It’s just incredulous.”

In an interview with CNN former border patrol chief Mark Morgan said that President Trump had no choice but to declare a national emergency to get funding for the border wall because “Congress failed.”

The Democrats think they know so much more and are much better informed than those who are actually on the ground every day at the Southern border.

This is not the first time Mark Morgan explained that a border barrier was necessary. In a mid-January interview he stated:

“Before I was the chief of border patrol I was with the FBI,” Morgan explained. “And I actually supervised MS-13 gang force in southern California. We used to catch them on surveillance wires, and they would laugh, MS-13 gang members would laugh [at] how easy it was to go back between Mexico and the U.S. border.”

(…) The other day when they had the national press conference, and they [border patrol agents] got up, and they said the wall works, they’re right,” said Morgan. “And it’s not based on a personal political ideology. That’s based on historical data and facts that can be proven.”

This isn’t only about identity politics. It’s also about stupid, stubborn, defiant Democrats who have chosen to disregard their duty to represent the people in favor of petty party politics

GAME ON: Trump Gives Bill Barr Complete Authority to Declassify Origins of Russia Probe

HERE WE GO…

John Salvatore

President Trump dropped a whopper on Thursday night. Soon enough, the entire world will know the origins of “spying” on the 2016 Trump campaign. Also, how the whole Russia conspiracy fiasco became a thing. Trump tweeted out the following… “Today, at the request and recommendation of the Attorney General of the United States, President Donald J. Trump directed the intelligence community to quickly and fully cooperate with the Attorney General’s investigation into surveillance activities…. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1131716322369392646?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1131716322369392646&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fhuge-trump-gives-ag-barr-complete-authority-to-declassify-info-on-russia-probe-origins%2F ….during the 2016 Presidential election. The Attorney General has also been delegated full and complete authority to declassify information pertaining to this investigation, in accordance with the long-established standards for handling classified information…. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1131716323485073409?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1131716323485073409&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fhuge-trump-gives-ag-barr-complete-authority-to-declassify-info-on-russia-probe-origins%2F ….Today’s action will help ensure that all Americans learn the truth about the events that occurred, and the actions that were taken, during the last Presidential election and will restore confidence in our public institutions.” @PressSec https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1131716324751826949?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1131716324751826949&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fhuge-trump-gives-ag-barr-complete-authority-to-declassify-info-on-russia-probe-origins%2F From Fox News: Trump claims his campaign was the victim of “spying,” though the intelligence community has insisted it acted lawfully in following leads in the Russia investigation. The president had told Fox News earlier in May that he would allow declassification “soon.” He elaborated, “I didn’t want to do it originally because I wanted to wait, because I know what they — you know I’ve seen the way they play. They play very dirty.” Last month, Barr ran into a buzz saw of criticism from Democratic lawmakers and media figures for testifying that “spying did occur” against the Trump campaign in 2016. But despite the backlash, Barr appeared to be referring to intelligence collection that already has been widely reported and confirmed. Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani weighed in: The President @realDonaldTrump made a wise decision to let AG Barr on the docunents. I don’t know for sure but I seriously doubt there’s any…

BOMBSHELL: Obama Admin’s Surveillance Of Reporters Is MUCH Worse Than Anyone Imagined

Kind of a big deal…

John Salvatore

The Obama administration was supposed to be the most transparent in American history. Due to inept leadership, the entire country knows that that is not true. Now, it is being reported that the previous administration’s surveillance of reporters is way, way worse than anybody imagined. Here’s the scoop… From Daily Wire: On Thursday, the Columbia Journalism Review reported on the results of a Freedom of Information Act request for documents related to the Obama Justice Department’s attempts to crack down on leaks to reporters which reveal that the Obama administration’s actions against the press “were broader than previously known.” […] “In 2013, the Justice Department launched a brazen attack on press freedom, issuing sweeping subpoenas for the phone records of the Associated Press and several of its reporters and editors as part of a leak investigation,” the authors report. While those subpoenas have long been understood as “a massive intrusion into newsgathering operations,” they note, the recently unearthed 2014 report reveals that the subpoenas targeting AP “told only part of the story.” The Office of Professional Responsibility’s report on the Obama Justice Department’s subpoenas of AP phone records reveals that “the DOJ’s actions against the AP were broader than previously known, and that the DOJ considered subpoenaing the phone records of other news organizations, including The Washington Post, The New York Times, and ABC News,” the authors explain. The report also reveals “how narrowly the DOJ interprets the Media Guidelines, the agency’s internal rules for obtaining reporters’ data.” Former Attorney General Eric Holder is still the only cabinet-level member in American history to be held in contempt of Congress. He might actually run for president in 2020. But first, Eric wants to do away with the “undemocratic” electoral college. Classic. He tweeted: A good reform measure to support. Change the…
