Your expert guest, Theo Meyer incorrectly named the very agencies he reporting on. Under the Department of Homeland Security there exists U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and the U.S. Border Patrol.

Your guest cited, Customs and Border Patrol. This is a common error but making it causes him to loose credibility.

Forget the radio equipment. Why did the Dept of Homeland Security just purchase 1.6 billions rounds of ammunition (including sniper rounds).. for DOMESTIC USE? If our government can't be a good model of being anti-gun, why should they expect the public to be?

Vice president Joe Bidden should ask military help in solving the phenomena of insurgents in America.
If they would give me a nickel for every time they mention the name Bayner i would be able to fix Americas debt problem.
