Well, they couldn't have people finding out what Iran did with all those pallets of cash,

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, public.
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.
"You're not doing this the Right Way!  You're causing us problems!"  Etc.

The line I've read is "Europeans have never forgiven the Jews for the Holocaust."
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.

I'm hearing more Strother Martin: What we've got here is failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach. So you get what we had here last week, which is the way he wants it. Well, he gets it. I don't like it any more than you men.

That guy who was run into, crawled from the wreck on fire then was stomped by the cops & dragged into the street was having a really bad day.
