[CNS] "It's unbelievable that a prosecutor would insert himself into an ongoing investigation for which he had nothing to do," Gowdy said.
According to Gowdy, "Bruce Ohr worked for the Department of Justice. He had nothing to do with the Russia investigation other than he inserted himself by having contact with Christopher Steele."
Ohr "even had contact with Chris Steele after the FBI terminated its relationship with Chris Steele." Gowdy noted that one branch of the Justice Department -- the FBI -- decided Steele was "not even fit to be an informant," yet a high-ranking Justice Department official, Bruce Ohr, was continuing to funnel information from Steele to the FBI.
"Unbelievable"...only if you reject the notion that Ohr's wife Nellie was still working for the Klingons. Or if you have forgotten that Ohr was working directly for Obama appointee Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
Gowdy should know since he inserted himself verbally into the investigation but really accomplished nothing. The only difference between Gowdy and Sessions is that Seasions does not run his mouth while accomplishing little.
[American Thinker] Because Trump-haters already are donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to Peter Strzok's GoFundMe begathon, they are likely to fund his lawyers making an issue of his firing. The fact that the deputy director of the FBI overruled the Office of Professional Responsibility's recommendation for a mild penalty of a 60-day suspension and a demotion will no doubt be a centerpiece of their argument that politics reared its ugly head, and he is a martyr.
Sara Carter, with many sources within the FBI, lays out the case that the OPR acted with bias and needs reform. I recommend that you read the whole thing, but here are some excerpts:
[W]hat could have led FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich, to make the decision to overrule OPR? ...
Former FBI special agents, some of whom worked with OPR for years, said they agree with Bodwich's decision. They told SaraACarter.com that the system is broken and Bodwich had no other choice but to step in and fire Strzok. They say political leanings, friendships and dual systems of justice inside OPR have plagued how cases regarding FBI agents are adjudicated and handled.
"Strzok was under oath before Congress and he made statements that appeared to be false and refused to answer some questions, but he was going to get just a slap on the wrist," said a former supervisory special agent from OPR adjudication, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the nature of their work. "There is absolutely no wiggle room when it comes to lack of candor in the FBI...unless you're an SES (Senior Executive Service). Strzok's firing went well beyond texting about Trump. Strzok would have also been involved in the handling of the FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) application to the FISC (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court)..." The agent noted that Strzok was "well aware that he was lying by deception when they did not include the information on who paid for the dossier and (that) Bruce Ohr was back-channeling information for a discredited source."
"Strzok knew they were not putting the application in the right context," the former FBI supervisory special agent added. "If there was the slightest doubt if that application was not 100 percent true, then that application would not go forward."
Unless I am mistaken, these are felonious actions. No wonder Strzok needs a legal defense fund.
The OPR obviously needs reform, as does more than just the top management of the FBI.
[Breitbart London] Dutch professor Maurice Crul has said that with the ever increasing number of migrants and migrant background people living in the Netherlands, that the native Dutch should just get used to being a minority.
A professor at the Free University in Amsterdam, Crul says that in the larger cities in the Netherlands white Dutch are already a minority and that such trends will follow in smaller cities and towns as well, Dutch newspaper Trouw reports.
"In Amsterdam the time has come: there this group is a minority. Only one in three young people under the age of fifteen is of Dutch descent," Professor Crul said and added, "If you want to know how the integration is going, you also have to look at that group. Who adapts to whom if there is no majority anymore?"
"The first guest workers were a small migrant group in a dominant culture. With the second and third generation that is an outdated idea. Integration now works in two directions," he said adding, "This way a Turkish Dutch person can become your new manager. Or your child is in the minority at school. That is the new reality that the old ’dominant majority’ will be confronted with."
Crul, along with a team of eight researchers, recently received 2.5 million euros from the European Research Council to conduct studies on the subject in Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Antwerp, Malmö and Vienna.
Over a decade ago, before the current migrant surge, I had heard that the Dutch Language was going extinct as a Living Language. The younger generation was using the neighboring languages in preference in common, every day speech: English, French or German were in more common usage.
*Hmmm* Were they already starting to lose their Group Identity back then?
Maurice Crul should take the first pitch beating

They also like to come to San Diego for work during the winter for some reason.
Probably because the only way to get around is ice skating.

Those other languages are how they speak with non-Dutch speakers. Among themselves they happily revert to their own tongue, much like a small group of children babbling in their private variant of pig latin to the exclusion of outsiders.
[Times of San Diego] Here's why CA's DMV is such a hot mess - politics. Just like the Dams, High Speed Train, Illegals, poop and needles in the streets and playgrounds....

Let's just hope that CA's government doesn't. for the sake of economy, decide to merge the water tunnels with the high speed bullet train. But that would be funny. Sort of like a supersized 'ACME' project (cue Wile E.)
Was at DMV in July with my wife to renew her license...got there at 6AM,,it opened at 8AM and she finished at 9 AM.
I went this past Monday at 6am (was 4th in line)and finished my DL renewal at 11 am.
One huge bottleneck is the driver license exam area.. not near as fast as the 'hand written" tests.
The new computer operating system is very slow and there is not enough terminals.
...This wasn’t one of the faux Title IX cases of post-hoc regret, but the real deal. Ronell was grad student Nimrod Reitman’s doctoral adviser. He came to NYU because of her, to study under her. And from the start of his graduate studies, she turned him into her boy toy upon the implicit threat of destroying his career. And it continued throughout his graduate studies, as proven by Ronell’s emails.
Professor Avital Ronell used her academic power over Reitman to coerce him to be her sexual plaything for years, or else.* And the feminist academy, via Judith Butler and myriad other signatories to a letter, demand that NYU lay off Ronell, or else. And it’s incredible to believe that the finding of responsibility wasn’t the impetus for the threat letter. Yet, these scholars sought to coerce a university into silence and impotence to conceal Ronell’s conduct.
...Diane Davis, chair of the department of rhetoric at the University of Texas-Austin, who also signed the letter to the university supporting Professor Ronell, said she and her colleagues were particularly disturbed that, as they saw it, Mr. Reitman was using Title IX, a feminist tool, to take down a feminist.
We hear a lot about white privilege from liberals, but no one on the Left wants to talk about the most glaring privilege infesting our nation today: celebrity privilege.
Let’s start with football players who use company time to protest ‐ what? I’m not quite sure what they’re protesting and what it has to do with football or the flag, but they’re out there raising their fists and bending their knees. While they’re being paid by their bosses to play football and abide by team rules, they inject their politics into the sporting experience and alienate customers.
Only someone with celebrity privilege could get away with that. The lowly office worker can’t speak his mind whenever and however he wants. The cashier at Chipotle can’t spout off about his political views and drive customers out the door. The assembly line worker can’t walk off the job to protest his latest beef with society. If he did, he’d get fired in a heartbeat ‐ justifiably so.
Regular, hard-working Americans who remain faceless in the crowd don’t get the luxury of saying whatever they want to say ‐ because they’re not celebrities. They labor in the shadows while multi-millionaires add to their piles of gold.
"[T]here seems to have been an actual decline in rational thinking. The United States had become a place where entertainers and professional athletes were mistaken for people of importance. They were idolized and treated as leaders; their opinions were sought on everything and they took themselves just as seriously-after all, if an athlete is paid a million or more a year, he knows he is important ... so his opinions of foreign affairs and domestic policies must be important, too, even though he proves himself to be ignorant and subliterate every time he opens his mouth."
-- Robert A. Heinlein
Killing Western Civ and real American history (in perspective to all others vs perfection), was to sooth the masses that what they have is 'natural' when in fact, a working republic is unnatural to human behavior and requires hard work of its engaged citizenry. One can not glide along and hope the system takes care of itself.
