    Someone help me figure out this:

    on at least 2 occasions, I see ABC’s WH correspondent, Jon Carl, say that he has heard from good authority that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s final report may be anti-climatic …… (contrary to the expectations of many)

    I have also heard him imply that the:

    (a) former leaders of the FBI were had an antagonistic (or suspicious) attitude towards traitor-in-chief and that is a possible explanation about how the counter-intelligence investigation be allowed to proceed …. perhaps that explains why they are no longer with the FBI;

    (b) the fact that no other information is coming out about the counter-intelligence investigation other than it was started before Special Counsel Robert Mueller came in and was then handled to him; he then concludes that it may have ended.

    why is Jon Carl pushing this line of argument when:

    (a) most agree that we do not know what the spy-hunters are doing;

    (b) former and current professional law enforcement officers have stated that by the nature, complexity, and sensitivity counter-intelligence investigations take very long (maybe even years) to conclude;

    (c) others have stated that it not always easy to justify WHY most of the FBI leaders left their positions …. and that politics could be involved;

    I am confused …. does he know more or …. what is really up with these arguments ?????//

      I would question Jon Carl on who’s his source is. Wasn’t he one of the reporters that asked horrible right wing questions at President Obama’s Press Briefings. All though that describes most of the WHPC towards President Obama.

      Mueller’s team do not leak information. Whoever his source is – they know nothing. Bluster and b.s. from Jon Karl

    The former president of the United States will be in Calgary on March 5 at noon. He’ll be speaking at the Scotiabank Saddledome to what will likely be a soldout crowd. “A Conversation with President Barack Obama” will be his first appearance in Calgary. … bit.ly/2M7t7Pw

    service to community is in my soul and I am really interested in all aspects of politics.

    I would have loved to run for public office. I believe that I could work very hard to win. Those who know me best are convinced that I can be a good elected official.

    But, I choose not to run because I know the shortcomings of my life’s decisions (aka my secrets) which would embarrass me, my family, supporters and constituents.

    Instead, I choose to do all I can in the day-to-day activities that support candidates who share my value.

    Therefore, I am always puzzled by people who choose to run for office when they know the specific secrets they are keeping which could be revealed in an instant and destroy them and the ones they care about.

    I hope that some of our potential Dem candidates who have important deep secrets can sit this one out …. can we deal with a candidates who have the secrets after what we have experienced from traitor-in-chief, his family, friends, and republicans

      Everyone must see this. Thank you Robert Reich.
      The little russian has delivered, or is in the process of delivering all of the above to his boss.
      What Reich doesn’t go into is Siberian oil:
      imo Trump and GOP officials are invested, have shares, and will try to raise sanctions.
      Siberian oil will potentially make Putin the richest man on Earth.
      Easy to see why Dicktraitor denies climate change = thumbs up to Russian/KOCH/global fossil fuels.

      #WeThePeople…and the Dems in the House and the Senate…must build a consensus among the American People…that Trump presents a clear and ever present danger to the national security of the United States.. and therefore must be impeached…Public hearings are a must….the people have to see this for themselves…True there is going to be a small segment of Americans who will not believe…but if we can get 75% or more…It’s On….

      As I watched that spectacle last night the only person I could think of was my wife. Now my wife is sort of a health nut, she’s a RN which means I’m not allowed to eat junk food, fried food or drink soda. Once in a while when I’m driving home from work I might relapse and eat something that I shouldn’t, I scarf it down before I pull in the drive way. I jump out the car and throw the evidence of what I ate inside the trash can in the garage. Now my son is thin as a rail, he gets to eat whatever he wants to, life isn’t fair.

    I dunno why, but Robin blocked me on Twitter years ago. It really threw me, cuz I’d never done anything but retweet her and praise her. Maybe I got caught up in a mass blocking session by accident. [I’ve done a few myself.] She’s the only person whose blocked me that I’m actually sad about. Anyway, I’ve admired her since back when she was a sports reporter in Atlanta. Still proud to see her success.

      What PBO did in response to the Global 2nd Depression was nothing short of masterful, considering the Collins GOP-ers who dragged it out, watered down the ARRA, and then voted No. If he’d had his druthers on how much $$$, we’d have recovered quicker.
      Nevertheless eh? Longest job rollout in our history. PBO should be CANONIZED just for this!
      Consider the filthy Mafia financial games that nearly brought down the globe. (And they’re at it again.)

    per Gallup, Trump is the only POTUS in history of polling never to reach 50% approval in first 2 years

    also the only POTUS whose average approval for first 2 years (39%) was below 40%

    averages for predecessors: Obama 52%, GWB 70%, Clinton 48%, GHWB 70%, Reagan 50%, Carter 54%
