Why Robots Will Not Take Over Human Jobs.[3]

Jobs And Robots: 25 Countries Ranked On Job Loss Potential From Automation, Robotics, And AI.[4]

"South Korea, Germany, and Japan are most prepared for the coming wave of automation, according to a new report by The Economist. The U.S., on the other hand, ranks ninth out of 25 countries. And the most-at-risk countries? Mexico, Vietnam, and Indonesia."

Robots replace low-skill workers. If your job can be done by a machine, then it's definitely time to consider learning a new skill. On the other hand, which is cheaper, robots or illegal Mexicans? --David B (TALK) 21:50, 16 May 2018 (EDT)
"Advanced automation is already reshaping low-skill and even medium-skill jobs, and tasks once done by so-called ‘knowledge workers’ are now done by machines (think of financial services). Given that up to 47 percent of current jobs are likely to be automated by 2034, this suggests massive labor market upheaval."[5] - Brookings InstitutionConservative (talk) 21:48, 17 May 2018 (EDT)

Farewell to the Boy Scouts

For a century, no group in America had a better image than the Boy Scouts. In 2016, 2.1 million boys were enrolled.[6] Trump attended the 2017 Jamboree and spoke before tens of thousands of adoring boys. The left was incensed. Now the Boy Scouts are no more. See here and here. PeterKa (talk) 20:51, 16 May 2018 (EDT)

Las Vegas shooter was a gun nut

It turns out that the Vegas shooter was a gun nut.[7] If irrational fears of gun grabbing can trigger the Oklahoma City bombing and the Las Vegas massacre, imagine what the reaction would be if the government adopted such a policy for real. Dear Parkland students, Americans like the Second Amendment. Period. Maybe you could find some other cause, possibly one that doesn't kill us all. PeterKa (talk) 22:34, 17 May 2018 (EDT)

"gun nut" is not really what the link talks about, which includes the observation that Paddock "was on a losing streak prior to the shooting." Appreciate the comment, though.--Andy Schlafly (talk) 00:28, 18 May 2018 (EDT)
According to the article, Paddock told an unnamed police informant that "Federal Emergency Management Agency “camps” setup after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 were “a dry run for law enforcement and military to start kickin' down doors and...confiscating guns.”" Paddock became aware of this issue because of publicity it received in 2015 at the time of the tenth anniversary. Perhaps he started planning the attack at that time, although that is considerably earlier than the timeline as we have understood it up to now. PeterKa (talk) 04:53, 18 May 2018 (EDT)

Failure of gun control

The Left is again trying to use the latest Texas shooting to push for gun control -- however, none of their favorite "solutions" would have actually stopped the shooter. Assault rifle or "high capacity" magazine ban? The shooter used neither (he used a revolver and a shotgun -- guns that most liberals claim to support and that the Supreme Court protected in 2008). Universal background checks? The gun didn't actually belong to the shooter. Waiting period? Once again, the gun didn't belong to him. And in case he wasn't able to get guns, he still had bombs that he would have used instead. The Left claims to support the Second Amendment, or at least some leeway to owning a weapon, but even under their preferred solutions that would supposedly protect the 2A the shootings would continue. Yet, they continue calling for more gun control which would disarm law-abiding citizens and make them beholden to their government no matter how tyrannical or corrupt.

What socialists forget is that before, say, 1968 (or 1934), there were virtually zero gun controls in place and buying a gun was as easy as buying anything else, even if you were underage. A larger percentage of the population had guns, and recreational shooting teams (like what we still see in the Olympics) were common at public schools. Today, none of this is true, and the proportion of armed Americans is shrinking. Yet the number of mass shootings is increasing. Gun control is a superficial (and unconstitutional) solution that misses the underlying reasons for the increase in violence and reduces freedom for law-abiding citizens in the process.

The Left's push for gun control has nothing to do with promoting safety -- it's consistent with their faith in the Idea of Progress that a utopia, where there's world peace and all people are united with zero barriers separating them, can eventually be created on earth. Rather than unilaterally seek to create a one-world utopia (open borders, disarmament, gun control, multiculturalism, compulsory public schooling, etc.), the Left should take a more realistic approach. --1990'sguy (talk) 14:09, 19 May 2018 (EDT)

“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things that you think you could not do before.” ―Rahm Emanuel
Of course these changes would have made no difference--they almost never would. Most of the times these firearms are stolen. It's a fact of life that criminals break laws. It's no problem for them to break a law by stealing a gun before they break the law by killing people. These laws, just like the gun free zones where these shootings almost always take place do nothing to stop the problem, and they've admitted this. They don't care, they just want to use the opportunity to restrict them anyway.
"the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." ―the second ammendment
They are doing all they can to infringe on it. Even permits are unconstitutional, and yet most people must get them to carry. According to the constitution, guns should be as easy to buy, keep, carry, and use (for lawful purposes) as baseball caps. In that way, majority really does rule--one criminal's gun is no match for the 10 guns of moral, law-abiding citizens around him. --David B (TALK) 14:39, 19 May 2018 (EDT)
There was a mass shooting a long while back which featured the wearing of trenchcoats by the murderers. Recent interviews of students at Santa Fe high school revealed the murder suspect wore a trenchcoat as well, even in the late spring heat. This might explain why liberal commentators wouldn't deal with the killings directly, but rather hastened their retreat towards safety up to the heights of elite criticism, feet barely touching the ground, scorching the earth behind them as they went, the abstraction proceeding from the gun culture of the state, barely touching his white skin color, dropping a few words about his bland emotional affect, nodding in approval while rushing past the speaking Governor Abbott, pressing play on a powerpoint about mass shootings in general while whooshing through the state house, and ending in Governor Cuomo's office in violent-crime-ridden New York as he is on Twitter attempting to extort an intemperate act from Trump by laying the responsibility of the atrocity at his feet while assuming a feigned shock, and if you can imagine worse, even casting lurid shadows on the Bill of Rights itself.
Ahhh, VargasMilan! I had thought you might be losing your rhetorical flair, and were unable to improve upon your "pseudoscience that leavens science" comment, among others. Your paragraph above shows that you haven't lost your touch. SamHB (talk) 15:45, 24 May 2018 (EDT)
Yes, but please bear in mind, in these cases, you don't know whether to laugh or cry. VargasMilan (talk) 03:09, 25 May 2018 (EDT)
What a show! I bet by now you've nearly forgotten about the trenchcoat...but yes it was tolerance, liberal tolerance that permitted the murder suspect to carry out a mass-killing homage over a period of months or more by way of the resembling attire he wore–I wonder if that might have been identified as a warning flag for an attitude of disrespect or contempt, that maybe wouldn't have even required the Governor of one of our largest states to evoke the spectre of a constitutional crisis?VargasMilan (talk) 04:54, 20 May 2018 (EDT)
Trenchcoats are from the school shooting scene in Basketball Dairies (1995). Here is a clip. Thanks, Hollywood. PeterKa (talk) 17:02, 20 May 2018 (EDT)

Stefan Halper

We have a Stafan Halper page with his extensive bio back to 1971. Additionally, Halper is already cited as an authority on the neoconservativism page. RobSDeep Six the Deep State! 12:57, 21 May 2018 (EDT)

Sooo...Brennan, Comey, and possibly Rosenstein outed Halper to the NYT - a possible violation of the Intelligence Identities Protection Act. RobSDeep Six the Deep State! 16:14, 21 May 2018 (EDT)
Halper was paid more $1 million to invite Carter Page and George Papadopoulos to England. This allowed the FBI to treat the pair as international spies.[13] Apparently, all four FISA judges fell for this transparent scam. PeterKa (talk) 01:24, 22 May 2018 (EDT)
We have no evidence any of this was presented to the FISA court. It was an entrapment sting concocted by Brennan (similiar to the sting operation on Don Jr & Kushner at Trump Tower) so Brennan could tell Comey & the Gang of 8 that UK intelligence told him Trump people were in contact with Russians. RobSDeep Six the Deep State! 01:33, 22 May 2018 (EDT)
Whoa! Caught a mistake in your link which is sourced from Zerohedge. The chart reads: Recipient Name Start Date End Date Amount Awarding Agency

HQ003416P0148 HALPER, STEFAN 9/26/2016 3/29/2018 $411,575 Department of Defense HQ003415C0100 HALPER, STEFAN 9/24/2015 9/27/2016 $244,960 Department of Defense

...meaning Halper was paid by DOD up to March 29 of this year, 2018. True, he was paid something 1 day after the Isakoff article on Sept. 23, 2026. But Tyler Durden of Zerohedge is reading the chart wrong. RobSDeep Six the Deep State! 01:51, 22 May 2018 (EDT)

Significance of the Halper leak: the DOJ (Rosenstein presumably) was trying to set up Nunes & Gowdy as outing the identity of a CIA asset. "the mother of all leaks". Nunes is getting close to the nerve center of the origins of Obama's illegal investigation (Brennan PIDOOMA'd it). The DOJ since December claims it came about through the Halper/Papadopoulos/Carter Page connections. Brennan & Rosenstein are willing to sacrifice Halper, who isn't likely to serve any jail time, to keep Comey, Brennan, Sally Yates, McCabe, Baker, et al out of jail.

While a big story and more evidence of abuse (legislation will be required to fix this), it's not the final conclusion. More importantly, we see another set up of Nunes & Gowdy attending a briefing similar to how Trump was set up January 6, 2017 followed up by collusion between Clapper & CNN with leaks designed to destroy Trump's reputation. This leaves a somewhat ambiguous question: Who in the DOJ violated the Intelligence Identities Protection Act by leaking the details of Halper to the NYT (see Valarie Plame affair, for instance) in order to coverup a bigger crime? RobSDeep Six the Deep State! 17:19, 22 May 2018 (EDT)

Mueller investigation

Actually, Grassley just asked Rosenstein to cite specifically which statute or regulation allows for the appointment of a Special Counsel in a counterintelligence investigation. The law states specifically only in criminal investigations. RobSDeep Six the Deep State! 14:38, 21 May 2018 (EDT)

The upside to yesterday's Twitter ruling

The UK has a road problem, The USA has a mass murder problem (Usually in conservative states). Tell me which problem you would prefer? I will stick with a hole in my tyre rather than a hole on my chest.--MarkI2 (talk) 12:27, 25 May 2018 (EDT)

"Usually in conservative states," really? Virginia (Virginia Tech) voted Democrat in the last several Presidential elections. Colorado (Aurora), used to be conservative but migrants from California have been pulling it left. Connecticut (Newtown) been Democrat for a long time. Washington, D.C. (Navy Yard shooting) long-time solidly liberal and Democrat. California (San Bernadino) Super-liberal and Democrat. Florida (Orlando) is a swing-state, but the region that Orlando is in is Liberal and Democrat. Same with Parkland. Nevada (Las Vegas) voted for Obama and Hillary in recent elections. By the way, mass shootings only make up a small fraction of total murders in the US, and most murders happen in liberal, Democrat-run cities regardless of what the rest of the state is like. Shobson20 (talk) 16:45, 25 May 2018 (EDT)

As I noted elsewhere on the main talk page and its archives, the counties where the Sandy Hook and Parkland shootings happened were overwhelmingly left-wing counties (with 2/3rds of the population voting for Clinton and only about 1/5 of residents being registered Republicans). In conservative places, like that Texas church last year (where the idiotic "gun free zones" garbage doesn't apply), or in conservative Dixon, Illinois,[18] or in Oklahoma, where every county went for Trump in 2016,[19] the shootings were stopped by people with guns. When you say "conservative states", not only is that false in most cases (since most of those states are either purple or blue), but the localities where the shootings happen are left-wing. --1990'sguy (talk) 17:34, 25 May 2018 (EDT)
I just noticed that Shobson20 made essentially the same point above (though without the law-abiding shooting-stoppers part). "MarkI2", you can comment after you get your facts straight. --1990'sguy (talk) 18:09, 25 May 2018 (EDT)

Chicago, Baltimore, Atlanta and L.A. have never been conservative or Republican, and have consistently had the highest violent crime and homicide rates for decades. RobSDeep Six the Deep State! 18:52, 25 May 2018 (EDT)
New Orleans, St. Louis, Newark, and Oakland, too. By contrast, look how low the murder rate is in Idaho, with the loosest gun laws in the nation.Shobson20 (talk) 19:14, 25 May 2018 (EDT)
Or you could look at Kennesaw, Georgia, which requires gun ownership and yet has seen only one murder in six years (of a town of 30,000).[20] In places like this and Idaho, it's normal to go into a place like Walmart and see people with guns -- and contrary to what leftists will think, people aren't shooting each other. --1990'sguy (talk) 19:26, 25 May 2018 (EDT)

Most mass shootings in the USA are done by immigrants (or their progeny) and they usually come from dysfunctional societies.[21] It is the liberals/leftists who want mass immigration. Donald Trump wants to restrict immigration from dysfunctional countries.

In addition, the mentally ill are more likely to commit mass murder in America. Furthermore, the data indicates that liberals/leftists are more likely to be mentally ill.[22] See also: Atheism and psychopathy and Secular leftists and psychogenic illness.

I hope that helps clarify things.Conservative (talk) 17:29, 25 May 2018 (EDT)

By the way, the mass shooting issue has nothing to do with potholes. This is a red herring. The red herring is being used because some Brits do not want to face the national disgrace of having a road system that is below Chile in its quality due to an epidemic of potholes in Britain (see: United Kingdom's road repair crisis).

The red wave in California

Believe it or not, this is the New York Times headline for a profile on the upcoming June 5 primaries: "Democrats Go All-Out to Avoid Disaster in California House Races." How can the Dems lose a primary, you might ask? California has non-partisan primaries in the which the top two candidates of any party go on to the general. In other words, things have gotten so bad for the party that NYT is worried the Dems can do no better than third place in the nation's most liberal state. The Dems don't necessary disagree on issues, but they might have rival candidates who are gay, female, Hispanic, Muslim, etc. Such divisions could leave them shut out of six of California's 53 House races. PeterKa (talk) 01:03, 27 May 2018 (EDT)

Spy or confidential informant?

The New York Times and The Washington Post are spewing rabid, foaming at the mouth rage because Trump called Stefan Halper a "spy" instead of a confidential informant.[28] Here's how the English language works, MSM: If someone spies on you, he's a spy. If someone spies for you, you may try to think of a nicer name. But the fact remains that he's still a spy. As Churchill put it, “Enemy submarines are to be called U-Boats. The term submarine is to be reserved for Allied under water vessels. U-Boats are those dastardly villains who sink our ships, while submarines are those gallant and noble craft which sink theirs.” PeterKa (talk) 06:46, 27 May 2018 (EDT)

A spy is someone sent into an organization, an informant is an existing source within an organization. Halper is by definition a spy, although the FBI traditionally uses the term "informant" in court filings for deniability to hold the source at arms length RobSDeep Six the Deep State! 18:00, 29 May 2018 (EDT)

British public now protesting Tommy Robinson illegal arrest and liberal media censorship of same

Reported here in this video from YouTube: [29] It also makes mention of how members of Robinson's media crew are being illegally threatened with arrest for talking about his arrest in the media. Northwest (talk) 07:56, 27 May 2018 (EDT)

Update on the Tommy Robinson situation (including some inconvenient [to the liberals] truths regarding the Islamic rape gangs and the UK Child "Protective" Service's complicity in their actions): [30] Northwest (talk) 09:43, 27 May 2018 (EDT)
In 2016, Muslims made up about 6.3% of the UK population. Pew Research's estimates are that the UK's Muslim population will be between 9.7 percent to 17.2 percent of the UK's population by 2050 depending on the level of immigration.[31]
According to Dr. Peter Hammond:
"When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions ( Paris --car-burnings). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats (Amsterdam - Mohammed cartoons)....
After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning: Ethiopia -- Muslim 32.8%".[32]
One thing for certain, the Muslim/evangelical immigration into the UK is affecting the level of creationism in the country. Johns Hopkins University Press reported in 2014: "Over the past forty years, creationism has spread swiftly among European Catholics, Protestants, Jews, Hindus, and Muslims, even as anti-creationists sought to smother its flames."[33] In addition, the rate of secularization in Britain appears to be zero (see: UK and secularism).
At the same time, Europe does have a bloody history. Muslims could eventually be expelled from Europe or there could be civil wars within European nations due to Islam or other conflicts. For example, the Reconquista was the reconquest by Christians of the Iberian Peninsula (nowadays Spain and Portugal), which was under Muslim control. Here is a 2016 report about France which has a large Muslim population: ​Jews are leaving France in record numbers amid rising anti-Semitism and fears of more Isis-inspired terror attacks. If there is a backlash against Muslims in Europe, Muslim could be forced to flee Europe. See: Essay: Anders Breivik is the canary in the mine showing that right-wing politics could become much more violent.
Hopefully, there will be a Christian revival in Europe. I do know that John Wesley is frequently credited with avoiding a violent revolution from occurring in Britain (which of course happened in France (see: French Revolution). And Jesus did say, "Blessed are the peacemakers". As far as peace, it does take two to tango so to speak and unfortunately Muslims are not assimilating in Europe and Islam has a very blood past compared to other religions. Vox Day wrote: "It’s also interesting to note that more than half of these religious wars, sixty-six in all, were waged by Islamic nations, which is rather more than might be statistically expected considering that the first war in which Islam was involved took place almost three millennia after the first war chronicled in the Encyclopedia, Akkad’s conquest of Sumer in 2325 B.C.".[34]Conservative (talk) 10:28, 27 May 2018 (EDT)

Right now, secularism/atheism/irreligion is a spent force in Europe with low morale and a bleak future and this situation will continue and go well beyond 2100 should Jesus tarry (see: European desecularization in the 21st century and Militant atheism vs. Christianity, Islam and right-wing ideology).

Pardon Martha Stewart

Trump is said to be considering a pardon for Martha Stewart, who was convicted of "lying to the FBI" in 2004. James Comey was the prosecutor in the case. It is well-documented in psychology that witnesses to the same event may remember it differently simply because of the way memory works. Stewart is hardly the first person to be convicted of lying to the FBI. But her case was unusual at the time in that there was no issue of an underlying crime for her to cover up. The case created a precedent that was used against Scooter Libby in 2005 and Michael Flynn in 2017. Knowing that the tactic was Comey's brainchild leads to an obvious question: "Why didn't he use it against Hillary?" I think it's safe to conclude that Comey and the FBI treat this tactic as a fig leaf to justify partisan prosecution. PeterKa (talk) 21:34, 31 May 2018 (EDT)

It was a twin agenda - exonerate Hillary for her crimes and frame Trump on crimes he did not commit. RobSDeep Six the Deep State! 23:14, 6 June 2018 (EDT)

Overseas informants in the Trump campaign

Let's get focused. This should be the main issue in both the 2018 and 2020 elections - the FBI, Clinton campaign, and Obama Democrats used foreigners, Brits, Australian, Russian, Estonian, etc. to meddle in American democracy. Not a shred of evidence Trump colluded with any foreign individuals or entities. RobSDeep Six the Deep State! 23:10, 6 June 2018 (EDT)

Likely scenario

(A) OIG report & Obama FBI election meddling pushes corruption issue to the fore; (B) during abbreviated August recess, Trump (C) cans Sessions and (D) makes recess appointment of Judge Jeanine Pirro as AG, who then (E) relieves Rod Rosenstein of managing the Mueller probe, (F) assumes control herself, (G) re-assigns Rosenstein elsewhere, and (H) replaces Mueller with a neutral arbiter, who proceeds to implement ethical rules and replaces Clinton cronies & donors. (I) The reputation of the Special Counsel could further be salvaged by (J) writing an interim report exonerating Trump and associates, and (K) adding to the mandate instructions to prosecute those perpetrators who colluded with Russia and foreigners to interfere in the election, i.e., Hillary, Glenn Simpson, John Podesta, Brennan, Comey, etc etc etc. RobSDeep Six the Deep State! 20:54, 8 June 2018 (EDT)

oconus lures

Beware of misstating the significance! While it dates from December 2015, it pre-dates the primaries. It proves the Obama FBI was ready to frame whoever the GOP nominee was, Jeb, Rubio, Cruz, etc. It is more evidence that the Hillary email whitewash & Russia collusion narrative are all ONE scandal in the Obama DOJ, and not so much that Trump alone was specifically targeted. By not having command of the facts, you weaken your own argument and play into the denials of media/deep state operatives. RobSDeep Six the Deep State! 11:44, 10 June 2018 (EDT)

Good points, but Trump was the only one the Deep State opposed. The other GOP candidates were pro-Deep State. Also, December 2015 was one of the early peak months of the primary battle.--Andy Schlafly (talk) 13:35, 10 June 2018 (EDT)

Andy, I'm almost of a mind that Hillary withheld her emails as bait for a "Russia collusion" conspiracy theory, knowing she had allies in the MSM & IC who would support her, that she was "tuff on Putin," knowing Uranium One, the Russian Reset, and Russisn intervention in Syria would be 2016 issues.

Oh, Cons! You're doing it again!

You wrote, on MPR:

A Bundestag parliament session was shut down amid an uproar which is a rare occurrence.

Perhaps you meant

A Bundestag parliament session was shut down amid an uproar, which is a rare occurrence.

As written, you said that there are lots of uproars, some of which are rare occurrences and some of which are not. (Yes, that makes no sense conceptually, but never mind that.) And the one that shut down the Bundestag session was of the former kind.

The feds have separated Manafort from his family too

In view of the media's current family unification mania, isn't it time for Trump to pardon Manafort? See Rush Limbaugh. PeterKa (talk) 08:00, 18 June 2018 (EDT)

What really annoys me is that nobody is talking about the fact that it's normal to separate people accused of crimes from their families. If it's OK to do it to American citizens, why is it somehow immoral to do it to people who knowingly break our immigration laws? We should pass a law stopping this for American citizens before we do it for illegal migrants. --1990'sguy (talk) 09:18, 18 June 2018 (EDT)
Elián González's mom sacrificed her own life so her son could have a better life in America. But giving Castro a propaganda victory was more important to the left at that time. Mark Steyn has a great take. A U.S. immigration officer once threatened not to let his Canadian-born daughter into the country. He responded that as a responsible father he would in that case stay in Canada himself. These parents faced a similar choice and decided to continue to the U.S. PeterKa (talk) 08:26, 19 June 2018 (EDT)

If I shoplift a candy bar from a convenience store, I get separated from my family. And I'm an American citizen. If I get a DWI with a child in car, I get additional charges of child abuse. Progressives argue that non-citizens have rights that Americans citizens don't have. Their arguments are not based on logic, rationale, or equal justice.

The death of single-issue politics

Earlier today, socialist activist David Hogg (the one who's supposedly the face of the gun control "movement") again called for boycotting Laura Ingraham's show -- but it had nothing to do with guns. It was because Ingraham made the ghastly and unforgivable sin of actually defending the Trump Administration's immigration policies, worst of all, actually daring to say that the illegal minors are actually being treated quite well by the government[37] (better than millions of American children[38][39][40]). In addition to illustrating how rabid the Left has become (since when was it acceptable to call for destroying a political commentator's life simply because of some mild and 100% defensible comments they made?), this shows that "single-issue" politics are a thing of the past. Gun control activists are essentially synonymous with open borders activists, or pro-abortion (murder) activists, or homosexual agenda activists. There's no difference. Political groups which once focused on a single issue (such as Planned Parenthood) now advocate for multiple different topic areas. --1990'sguy (talk) 21:31, 19 June 2018 (EDT)

David Hogg has very little power related the gun rights/control issue. He is boxed in by Supreme Court case precedents concerning the Second Amendment.Conservative (talk) 00:25, 20 June 2018 (EDT)
The problem is that the Supreme Court still has a lot of leeway for future decisions -- the only real court precedent is that Americans can actually own a gun inside their house. There have been no decisions on "assault" rifle bans, the minimum age, constitutional carry, or other issues -- and left-wing activist judges would love to rule on such issues. --1990'sguy (talk) 00:36, 20 June 2018 (EDT)

Strzok out at FBI

Although deep state ringleader Peter Strzok was dismissed from Mueller's team months ago for his Trump-hating cell phone messages, he was still an FBI agent in good standing until Friday: "Report: Agent Peter Strzok Was Escorted from FBI Building Friday." This was the guy who noticed that Hillary deleted 33,000 email messages and concluded, "No obstruction of justice here, folks!" What do you want to bet that he was bribed, like McCabe? PeterKa (talk) 01:18, 20 June 2018 (EDT)

I don't think he was bribed as much as he's just a die-hard Democrat who would do anything - legal or otherwise - to get Hillary elected. Karajou (talk) 03:27, 20 June 2018 (EDT)
In reading the IG report, it looks like the fix came from DOJ (Lynch, Yates, Axelrod, Carlin, and Toscas). The FBI made some rather lame objections (that is Comey, McCabe & Strzok) but only to cover their own butts ("preserve the integrity of the institution"). I was reading a section last nite where Strzok was the loan hero surrounded by a bunch of crooks - probably what he was anxious to testify about. Horowitz and Huber are working on FISA abuse and the Trump-Russia scam right now. They probably found some serious criminal conduct and fired him on the spot.
In perspective, I'll hypothesize the Hillary whitewash was a DOJ operation that the FBI was more less forced to go along with, whereas the FBI (along with Brennan & Brennan's boys Halper, Mifsud, Downer, possibly even Papadopoulos and Carter Page, too) is the lead agency in the Trump-Russia investigation, and DOJ is riding in the backseat, at least til it comes to FISA abuse.
Democrats are in a difficult spot now: if they oppose FBI reform, they are consenting to Trump surveilling whoever the Democrat nominee in 2020 is, and the entire Democrat nominee team. RobSDeep Six the Deep State! 10:34, 20 June 2018 (EDT)
The text message recently released by Horowitz supports the idea that the FBI leadership did it because it was just that partisan and anti-democratic. (Page: "[Trump's] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!" Strzok: "No. No he won't. We'll stop it.") Did Strzok really think the outcome of the presidential election was in his hands? Men have been known to exaggerate when trying to impress a girl. I assume the fish rotted from the head down and these lackies were just following Obama's instructions. We know that Obama met Strzok and Page in person to discuss the Russia probe. PeterKa (talk) 23:34, 21 June 2018 (EDT)
Strzok was acting on orders. Strzok was the interdepartmental liaison between the FBI & CIA (between Brennan and McCabe), as the "oconus lures" text corroborates. Brennan organized the network of "lures" which then Strzok oversaw the counterintelligence probe.
Remember, Midyear & Trump-Russia are intertwined: First exonerate Hillary, then frame the GOP nominee. The motivation is the same in all machine politics: Strzok was hoping to be appointed a deputy AG or deputy FBI director someday, or US Attorney and appointment to the federal bench by President Hillary. RobSDeep Six the Deep State! 12:44, 22 June 2018 (EDT)
Strzok refers to "All our oconus lures." So Halper wasn't the only informant outside the continental United States did political spying for the FBI. So what's a lure? "The Justice Department describes a lure as a technique used to “entice a criminal defendant to leave a foreign country so that he or she can be arrested in the United States.”"[41] The more you know about the DOJ, the sleazier the place gets.
Strzok's message was sent in December 2015 at about the same time Podesta wrote in his infamous email that the "best approach is to slaughter Donald for his bromance with Putin." So Clinton's campaign manager says, "jump." Strzok responds "How high?" PeterKa (talk) 19:16, 22 June 2018 (EDT)

The J. Edgar Hoover building needs to be renamed. J. Edgar Hoover abused his power and the headquarters of the FBI should not be named after him.
