Barr complained that Trump's DOJ tweets make it harder for him to do his job.

I laughed so hard when I read that!

NYT:
After Trump’s Attacks on Justice Dept., Barr Says He Will Not ‘Be Bullied’
The attorney general said that the president’s attacks on prosecutors’ handling of his friend Roger Stone’s sentencing undermine the legal system and the Justice Department.

So. You are happy, right?

Every election cycle, we here at this point talks about a brokered convention and while there might not be a candidate with enough delegates to win on the first ballot, there certainly are no brokers anymore.  My constant theme.
What else are you hereing?

All four DoJ attorneys on the Stone case have resigned.

LOL away, Ward.
ROFL!
All four were Mueller lackeys who misled the DOJ.
How fucking stupid are you ?

Oooh, right wing rhetoric with no substantiation to it.

I am less stupid than you are, Ward, and less dishonest, too.
Who employed the lackeys?

Multiple news reports said DOJ was blindsided by the formal recommendation from operatives tapped by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller that Stone be sentenced to up to nine years in prison. A source told Fox News that the sentence recommendation was “extreme, excessive, and grossly disproportionate” to Stone’s crimes.

The DOJ was in the process of rescinding the rogue prosecutors’ recommendation.
Sources told The Federalist that Timothy Shea, who was recently appointed to take over as the top federal prosecutor in D.C. earlier this month, was bullied into agreeing to the sentence recommendation by Adam Jed and Aaron Zelinsky, who were originally tapped by Mueller to investigate whether Donald Trump treasonously colluded with the Russian government to steal the 2016 election from Hillary Clinton. A full investigative report released by Mueller last year revealed that the Mueller investigation found zero evidence for any of the claims of collusion between Trump and the Russians. According to a separate report on serial abuses committed by the Department of Justice (DOJ) during its investigation of Trump, the DOJ inspector general found that the government knew long before Mueller was even appointed that there was no evidence of any collusion.
Shea’s acquiescence to the demand by the disgruntled former Mueller operatives raised questions about whether Shea was operationally in control of the D.C. prosecutor’s office, or whether he had effectively outsourced major decisions in high-profile cases to Mueller’s former deputies.

Vote Blue, no matter who!" argues Warren.

LOL!  What a campaign slogan!

I'd love it if Bernie would say that *now*.

Wrong color. Socialism is a Red Flag.

Fundies who believe God doesn't like gays or that Jesus never jacked off.   Lotta sexual hangups among Christians.

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
Oh. You must mean Mitt Romney, eh?

Luee - I doubt "religious purists" are a big factor in the Democratic Party.

What the hell is a “ religious purist?”

James Carville( the democrat who in 1992 gave us the memorable Clinton Campaign slogan:It's the ECONOMY, stupid!) in a recent interview with Vox:

We have candidates on the debate stage talking about open borders and decriminalizing illegal immigration. They’re talking about doing away with nuclear energy and fracking. You’ve got Bernie Sanders talking about letting criminals and terrorists vote from jail cells. It doesn’t matter what you think about any of that, or if there are good arguments—talking about that is not how you win a national election. It’s not how you become a majoritarian party. . . .

Capitalism is “ unregulated”?
Science is “ denied”?
You can’t possibly be serious.

You can't possibly be reading.

He didn't say either of those.

He said those were "the wet dreams of unregulated capitalism and science denial that get you all sticky."
LOL
Reading comprehension escapes you.
Unlike you , though, I do know how to invoke the ignore feature.

If you are ever interested in more fact-based and objective news sources,  I recommend

apnews.com

Or npr.org

Or https://www.independent.co.uk/us

Or Toronto based Reuters.com. 

These organizations are not current owned by any American political party or corporate entity that controls content.   This should enhance their credibility,  as sources free of partisan control.
LOL. 
Get a clue about how news is disseminated.
The AP?
NPR?
Both non-profits relying on the information(news) as reported by its fee paying members who thus are able to use the info themselves. All of the members are owned or controlled by corporately owned media enterprises or public news outlets funded by private donations and federal tax income.
Each supposedly are free of “ bias”?  Get a life.  The AP is routinely criticized for anti Israel bias and
NPR for political correctness ( Ask Juan Williams).
The Independent? A website owned by a Russian that it is an unabashed center-left outlet interested in pushing views, not news. Nothing wrong with that unless you are looking for balanced “ news” coverage. Point is the Independent is owned by someone who has partisan control.
But so what?
If all you do is search for news you agree with you remain as shallow as you post.

None of the above reply is factual or in any way true.   The Independent is actually more pro-market in its economic views than I am.   
LOL.  Then  it is not free from opinion. Thank you.

NPR features conservative opinions,  in balance with liberal ones,  and clearly separates opinion content from news. 
As does the Wall Street Journal , America’s most widely read newspaper.
Quote
Ditto AP. 
As I said the AP is a conglomerate  of corporate owned media outlets. This seems to confuse you.
Quote
They all have firewalls between any corporate money and newsrooms.
No. there are separations between the news side and corporate ownership opinions. The historical objective of any bona fide news organization is to inform, entertain, and influence
Another fundamental that confuses you
Quote
I notice you also erroneously assumed these are the only sources I use.
I replied to the ones you enumerated.

  PBS NewsHour is also good.  Marc Short is on all the time.   And many other conservatives.  You didn't mention Thomson Reuters - couldn't find a handy way to disparage,  I guess.   I also read National Review,  a conservative political mag.   And The Guardian,  which does lean Left in its opinion pieces,  but another one with an independent news division that has no control from corporate sponsors and is supported by small donors like me.
Bully for you.

Here's a thought for you - maybe when you separate news from corporate control,  the actual reality reported doesn't conform to the wet dreams of unregulated capitalism and science denial that get you all sticky.   If that insult seems unwarranted, you had best review the last sentence of your reply.
Capitalism is “ unregulated”?
Science is “ denied”?
You can’t possibly be serious.

Another day, another GOP cover-up blocked by a judge:

This one is about the records for how Georgia purged half a million voters.
You may want to read more.
But the film noire pic was laughable.
