FBI fires anti-Trump agent Peter Strzok

Pioneer cover

From the press release: From the moment he is handed a possibility of making the first alien contact, Saunders Maxwell decides he will do it, even if doing so takes him through hell and back.

Unfortunately, that is exactly where that journey takes him.

The vision that Zimmerman paints of vibrant human colonies on the Moon, Mars, the asteroids, and beyond, indomitably fighting the harsh lifeless environment of space to build new societies, captures perfectly the emerging space race we see today.

He also captures in Pioneer the heart of the human spirit, willing to push forward no matter the odds, no matter the cost. It is that spirit that will make the exploration of the heavens possible, forever, into the never-ending future.

The FBI today finally fired anti-Trump agent Peter Strzok from his job at the FBI.

This action is far too little, and maybe far too late. What we really need is a complete house-cleaning, with a fresh set of new faces in charge at the FBI and the Department of Justice. What we have gotten so far has merely been the removal of a tiny handful of players while many of the big cheese remain in power.


Every July, to celebrate the anniversary of the start of Behind the Black in 2010, I hold a month-long fund-raising campaign to make it possible for me to continue my work here for another year.

This year's fund-raising drive however is more significant in that it is also the 10th anniversary of this website's founding. It is hard to believe, but I have been doing this for a full decade, during which I have written more than 22,000 posts, of which more than 1,000 were essays and almost 2,600 were evening pauses.

This year's fund drive is also more important because of the growing intolerance of free speech and dissent in American culture. Increasingly people who don't like what they read are blatantly acting to blackball sites like mine. I have tried to insulate myself from this tyrannical effort by not depending on Google advertising or cross-posts Facebook or Twitter. Though this prevents them from having a hold on me, it also acts to limit my exposure.

Therefore, I hope you will please consider donating to Behind the Black, by giving either a one-time contribution or a regular subscription, as outlined in the tip jar below. Your support will allow me to continue covering science and culture as I have for the past twenty years, independent and free from any outside influence.

    I agree Peter Strzok is the tip of the iceberg. How did Peter get his position of power? He must of received it from a totally corrupt institution.

    Bruce Ohr and his up coming 8/28 /18 (?) testimony before I believe a closed door no theatrics Congressional hearing will be the next shoe to fall on this what will turn out to be, from the bottom to the top an illegal special prosecutor action set up and political hit job from the word go.

    Ohr is the #3 man in the DOJ who worked directly for Rosenstein and Christopher Steele middle man who after Steele was fired from the FBI orbit he occupied attempted to reinstate him and when that failed funneled “Dossier” information from Steele to Ohrs / his wife who just happened to work for Fusion GPS who supplied or compiled the Steele Dossier for the purpose that was listed above, a set up to justify the special investigation.

    From Mueller, to Comey, to Strzok, to McCabe, to Rosenstein, to Ohr, to McCain (Yes, John McCain is right in the middle of this) to etc, etc, the list is long and ALL are biased and legally conflicted actors, many are actual witnesses and participants, so the Mueller investigation in the long term will be / must be terminated and any actions that are a result of it will be determined to be fruit of the poisonous tree. At least from the perspective of the Trump component of it. IMO of course.

    This will turn out to be one of the biggest political scandals and moves against a duly elected president since JFK.

    Watch for it, ITS COMING.

    I can only imagine the blackmail they must have against A.G. Sessions, which is the only explanation for him and his criminal malfeasance that tracks. Home movies of him and his barnyard friends would be a guess , for a start. McCain? If their was ever need for a wooden stake and some garlic.. Wont he ever die?
