tommu, do you believe the goings on pertaining to the FISA warrant are bi-partisan ?
Well, not to prosecute already debunked talking points but:

a) Carter Page has been on the FBI watch list since 2013

b) FISA warrants have to be re-authorized every six months

c) and have been reliably signed off by judges who we do NOT declare partisan flags

d) long before Trump became president!

I *never* wear wife beaters and cutoffs.

Lets do some facts.
    The Legislative branch of government is currently republican. Both houses have a republican majority..
      The Executive branch of government is Republican. President and Royal Family included.
        The Deputy Attorney general, a republican was appointed by the President (republican)
          This republican Deputy Attorney General appointed a republican Special Counsel.
            This Republican special counsel is an ex Marine and holder of Bronze Star (with valor) Purple Heart Medal Navy Commendation Medal (2) (with valor) Combat Action Ribbon South Vietnam Gallantry Cross. In normal times people would look respectfully at those sacrifices and be reassured that they have the country's wellbeing at heart.

            So yes, this investigation so far is not looking very bi-partisan. The President's party runs both political branches of government and has absolute majority power. I guess it's not going to be bi-partisan.

            But the FISA warrant goings on? Who actually applies for a warrant from the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court? Well that would be the FBI which reports to the the Justice Department which reports to the Executive which is run by none other than the REPUBLICANS.

            So yes you're right. It's not very bi-partisan.

            My advice is to stop being such a moody fecker to everyone. This is politics not sports. No billionaire property developer gives a flying ### about your welfare. Take a step back and try to work out why so much disinformation is being pumped into your news feeds, twitter timelines, cable news and daytime TV. Who OWNS those organizations? Who do they support?

            But what do I know? I am after all Colin.

            That is a very interesting point. Would Colin ever tolerate this clock for more than a second?

            It is getting there. I split the case again to install a new distributor drive gear and change number 1 main bearing. I just learnt why we need to install the under cylinder tins before pushrods.

            That is a VW stamped oil cooler I picked up from my local FLAPS which once was an air-cooled parts specialist:

            NOS distributor, oil pump and AFM waiting to run!

            Looking forward to seeing you in June. I intend to be ready. Do you prefer first run out of the car? I have a spare bell housing, starter and pump so it should be possible.

            After ninetynine million years, I still find these engines intriguing and beautiful.

            I like Democracy Now! with Amy Goodman. And the Intercept. Otherwise, I consider NPR to be the line of the most left the right will allow you to be. Not all that enamored with "mainstream" outlets, that are dominated by conservative voices. I give more credence to Reuters, and yes, Al Jazeera, the Guardian and the like when it comes to a lack of bias reporting on events in this nation. I like Maddow, but often she can really beat a dead horse.

            Neal, do you ever read Mother Jones? They too are slipping in this new frenzied media landscape, but they have primary research journalism, at least.

            What I love about the dead horse-beating Rachel Maddow, is that she lines up her facts to be an air-tight backstop against the sure-to-come attacks, then she methodically beats all comers deaddeaddead. Each comer must be dispatched. It is tedious, but all who come to a Rachel Maddow fight will have their turn.
