Mark Morgan, the acting commissioner of US Customs and Border Protection, joined Judge Jeanine Pirro on Saturday to discuss Friday’s Supreme Court decision that allows US President Donald Trump to use Pentagon funds to build the US border wall with Mexico. The Supreme Court ruled Friday that the Trump Administration can use $2.5 billion in Pentagon funds to build the border wall. (Snip) Mark Morgan: Right now we’ve completed 52 new miles of wall along the southwest border strategic locations. And by 2020 we’re going to have about 205 miles of wall completed.

Good news. And this is much more than the first estimates of 250 miles. Still seems pretty expensive per mile, but we need to 'git 'er done', ASAP.

The 5-4 split notes again the poison of left ideology. Four supreme court justices have decided that the president should not be allowed to secure the border to protect our citizens. Wow. Shameful.

My only concern about cost is that with it being so damned hard to pry money loose from Congress, we need to get as many miles as we can for the small dribs and drabs of funding that Trump is able to get kicked loose. More miles per dollar is important with the Dems strangling the money flow.

A mile of fence a day seems terribly slow. Put two or ten teams on it and have them building in ten different spots simultaneously, working to join up. Get TEN miles built per day instead. This is an inherently parallel process, you do not have to wait on one section to be done before building the next section, so why so slow?

I think the private citizen s who put up the wall in ElPaso could do more than that with that much money.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is open to running for president after his boss leaves office, the top U.S. diplomat confirmed. “America has given me an awful lot,” Pompeo said Monday in Washington. “And if I thought I could do a good turn, there's nothing I wouldn't consider doing for America.” Pompeo’s future has become a topic of keen interest for political insiders in recent months. A former House backbencher from Kansas, his tenure in President Trump’s administration — first as CIA director, now as secretary of state — has made him one of the most visible American leaders in the world.
Mulvaney: If Trump Could Pass Spending

Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney told “Fox News Sunday” that if President Donald Trump could pass spending bills, the federal budget would be on the path to being balanced and the deficit would be down.“The Senate votes this week on a bill that would extend spending limits and also extend the debt limit into 2021. This is what the bill would do. It raises spending by $324 billion over spending caps, and runs out the clock on sequestration. No more forced spending cuts. Question, does the president want the Senate to pass it and if it does, will he sign this bill?”

Well before Sigmund Freud formalized the idea of “projectionism”—the defense of one’s own shortcomings and sins by attributing them to others—it was a common theme in classical literature and the New Testament: the ridiculing of the mole on someone else’s nose to hide one’s own boil.The term projection more or less sums up much of the woke identity politics movement, in which obsessions with racial privilege and tribal exceptionalism are justified by accusing others of just such bias.While such racist projectionism can often be a psychological tic that assuages the guilt of one’s own rank prejudice, just as often accusing others of racism is a peremptory careerist move to

On July 28, 2019, word leaked out to Axios, and President Trump confirmed on Twitter that he will replace current director of national intelligence (DNI), Dan Coats, with Texas Republican Representative, John Ratcliffe, effective on August 15, 2019. During his two-year tenure, Coats several times appeared to be out of sync with the president, reflecting some broader disagreements between Trump and the government’s intelligence agencies. In January 2019, Trump exchanged some verbal blows with Coats and Gina Haspel, the CIA Director, after they testified about a threat-assessment report that called into question some of the president’s foreign policy judgments regarding Iran. “Perhaps Intelligence should go back to school!”

Donald Trump is going after black racism head-on. After Elijah Cummings (D-MD) attacked Trump over comments about the Squad, Trump fired back with tweets about Baltimore being a rodent-infested mess that its Congressman, Cummings himself, should invest his time on improving rather than poking his nose into other people's business around the country. Of course, the Leftiverse lost its mind and now shouts of racism fill the airwaves. That nothing Trump said touched on race in any way is irrelevant. He trampled all over the Sacredness of Anything Black and must pay the penalty.At long last we have someone in a position of power who isn’t afraid

But at the age of eight, James Kaplan, now 11, who was born a biological girl, realised he had to transition from female to male.
