now could they?
The Obama administration "systematically disbanded" law enforcement
investigative units across the federal government focused on disrupting Iranian, Syrian, and Venezuelan terrorism financing networks out of
concern the work could cause friction with Iranian officials and scuttle
the nuclear deal with Iran, according to a former U.S. official who
spent decades dismantling terrorist financial networks.
Much like Fast & Furious, wonder how many bodies are piled up because of this?
This really tells you all you need to know about what a pit D.C. is:
It all started when Nunes said he had received unsolicited
information of wrongdoing from one or more whistleblowers. Unfortunately
for Nunes, he approached complaints of improper surveillance in a
Central Valley sort of way (but a most un-Washington manner).
Instead of the usual pattern of leaking the whistleblower's
information to friendly media (and, of course, denying that he was the
source of the leaks), Nunes went ballistic -- and, heaven forbid,
The result? Suddenly, Nunes himself became the object of Washington
vituperation for not immediately informing House Democrats about the
potentially inappropriate monitoring.
Nunes was targeted by progressive activists and investigated by the
House Ethics Committee -- which has thus far not released any findings
of improper behavior -- apparently because he went public and is now
viewed as a partisan of Trump.

The French-German broadcaster ARTE has reportedly shelved a documentary on antisemitism because it doesn’t bash Israel enough. ARTE and WDR, the publicly-funded TV networks that commissioned the 90-minute documentary, have decided to confine the film to the archives, calling it “unbalanced”. “You can’t make a film on antisemitism without saying every three minutes that the Palestinians are the victims of Israelis,” the co-producer of the documentary, Joachim Schröder, told The Jerusalem Post.
The documentary makers reject the objections publicised by the broadcasters as eyewash. “It’s not about balance,” Schröder was quoted saying in the German newspaper Bild, “How can a film on Antisemitism be ‘balanced’? ARD with offices in Strasbourg is obviously fearful of calling out the Jew-hatred in France and Germany.” Both ARTE and WDR are financed by German taxpayers.
From the Dark and Fascist State of New Jersey:
A police union official said the video 'clearly shows' officers acting in the victim's interests.
'Taking swift action isn't always elegant, but this video clearly shows that the officers acted quickly to extinguish the flames, and pull this man out of harm's way,' said Carmine Disbrow, president of the Jersey City Police Officer's Benevolent Association.
Yeah, nothing says "We care" like kicking and stomping someone.
