Lindsey Graham Reaches Out to Mueller as Barr Testimony Tizzy Continues

Lindsey Graham’s outreach to Mueller proves that the Congressman has the best interests of the American people at heart.

Despite enduring several weeks of grueling examination, the Mueller report seems to still possess its metaphorical legs, and will be running up and downs the teleprompters of the mainstream media for some time to come.

Further muddying the waters was a bout of contentious testimony from Attorney General Bill Barr, half of which the top cop in the country simply skipped…a decision that could very well lead to Congress voting to find him in contempt.

With the special counsel and Barr seemingly at odds over the true meaning of the report, focus has now turned back to Robert Mueller himself, as the democrats continue to negotiate his coming testimony.

It seems as though Republican Congressman Lindsey Graham has had similar thoughts.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., sent a letter to Special Counsel Robert Mueller Friday asking him if he wanted to “provide testimony regarding any misrepresentation” by Attorney General William Barr concerning a phone call the two had about the findings of his Russia investigation.

Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, thanked Mueller and his team “for the professional and thorough manner in which you conducted your investigation.”

At the center of the issue are two attempts by Robert Mueller to contact Barr and address concerns about Barr’s possible misrepresentation of the findings.  Barr’s story when speaking in front of Congress is far different than Mueller’s account, causing some concern among Americans.

Graham wrote, “In response to questions by Senator Blumenthal, the Attorney General testified in essence that you told him in a phone call that you did not challenge the accuracy of the Attorney General’s summary of your report’s principal conclusions, but rather you wanted more of the report, particularly the executive summaries concerning obstruction of justice, to be released promptly.  In particular, Attorney General Barr testified that you believed media coverage of your investigation was unfair without the public release of those summaries.”

He concluded his letter asking Mueller if he would “like to provide testimony regarding any misrepresentation by the Attorney General of the substance of that phone call.”

The only thing that we know for certain is that the American people deserve the whole truth, and Lindsey Graham understands this.

Canada Responds to Trump’s Tariff Reversal in a BIG WAY

China may still be a holdout at this late stage, but Trump’s economic prowess is paying dividends up north.

President Trump is once again at the helm of the American economy, after a few embarrassing weeks of distraction by the delusional democrats, and we couldn’t be happier. As the CEO-in-Chief pushes forward on a number of trade initiatives designed to spur the American economy ever upwards, reaction from the world’s stage has been mixed. In China, trade talks have begun to stall as Beijing continues to play the only card they have:  Sheer economic size.  Closer to home, however, President Trump is capitalizing on the close relationship that the US has with Canada in order to drive home the USMCA. Canadian officials look to be fully on board. Canada will move quickly to ratify the new North American trade pact, Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said on Saturday, a day after the United States agreed to lift tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum. U.S. President Donald Trump had imposed the global “Section 232” tariffs of 25% on steel and 10% on aluminum in March 2018 on both Canada and Mexico on national security grounds, invoking a 1962 Cold War-era trade law. The metals tariffs were a major irritant for Canada and Mexico and had caused them to halt progress toward ratification of the new U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), the trilateral trade deal signed last year which will replace the 25-year-old North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). The language was unmistakable. “We were very clear that as long as the 232 tariffs were there it would be very, very hard for us to ratify the new NAFTA, and that is why we did not table the legislation,” Freeland said in an interview broadcast by CBC radio. “Now that that big obstacle is lifted, full steam ahead,” she said, without saying when the agreement would be presented to parliament, which closes down in…

Dog in Thailand with Three Legs Hailed as Hero After Saving Abandoned Newborn

And he did it all with only three legs.

We don’t deserve dogs. Sure, that has been said thousands of times over throughout the course of modern history, but the logic is still difficult to argue with even with all of that preparation. These creatures, after tens of thousands of years as our only true companion animal, have evolved into not only being fairly well dependent on us, but also to love us unconditionally, and in ways that we could only dream about. New research even suggests that owning dogs has altered the human genetic code, and that being a “dog person” is something that a DNA test can reveal. Furthermore, dogs are kind and caring in ways that we may never be able to replicate as a more sentient animal. Take the case of a peculiar pup in Thailand who this week saved a newborn baby from an unfathomable fate at the hands of its mother. A dog in northern Thailand has rescued a newborn baby after it was buried alive, allegedly by its teenage mother. The baby boy is said to have been abandoned by his mother, 15, to hide her pregnancy from her parents. Ping Pong the dog was barking and digging in a field in Ban Nong Kham village. Its owner says he then noticed a baby’s leg sticking out of the earth. Locals rushed the baby to hospital where doctors cleaned him up and declared he was healthy. Ping Pong, despite having lost a leg in a car accident, has always been a good boy. Ping Pong’s owner, Usa Nisaikha, says it lost the use of one of its legs after being hit by a car. He told Khaosod Newspaper: “I kept him because he’s so loyal and obedient, and always helps me out when I go to the fields to tend to my cattle.…
