Washington, D.C. Congressman Jeff Van Drew released the following statement regarding the Mueller Report and the impeachment question:

“Currently impeachment is not the answer. We have an election in a year and a half and the American people can decide then. We are thoroughly reviewing the Mueller Report, and once we are done with the review it is time to move forward and get to business. Congressional issues such as Social Security, Medicare, Health Insurance, Infrastructure, Student Debt, and Climate Change are all things that we should be focusing on. I look forward to working in a bipartisan way to solve some real issues.”

WHY NOTHING PERMANENTLY STICKS TO TEFLON DONALD

Trump

Stop looking at Trump and look where Trump is looking. It’s All About the ‘Flair’

By Peter Rosenberger

When it comes to Trump, it’s all about Flair.

For several years, the media and the Washington establishment have railed against Donald Trump with little success. Porn stars, special counsel, duplicitous lawyers, celebrities—they’ve all taken him on to no avail. It appears they really don’t grasp the nature of Donald Trump.

If you want to understand Donald Trump, you don’t have to look much further than professional wrestling superstar, Ric Flair. Flamboyant, even by professional wrestling standards, Ric Flair maintained an astonishing career and achieved a lengthy list of championships and successes. Adopting the nickname, “Nature Boy,” Ric Flair emerged in the 1970s as a fan favorite. With flowing blonde hair and swagger, he paraded in front of thousands wearing only an industrial speedo, boots, and often a floor-length feather boa robe.

NICOSIA CYPRUS , U.S. Senator Bob Menendez (D-.N.J.), Ranking Member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committeetook time out of his busy schedule to issue the following statement in reaction to an announcement by the Trump Administration that the United States will implement Title III of the LIBERTAD Act. In Section 302 of the law, Congress provided U.S. citizens with verified claims for confiscated properties by the Cuban regime with the ability to pursue litigation in U.S. courts against companies that are conducting business in, on or with these confiscated properties.

“By fully implementing Title III of the LIBERTAD Act, the United States is rightly providing U.S. citizens with the means to hold the Cuban regime accountable through the U.S. justice system.

“For decades, Cuba’s authoritarian government has profited extensively off of the private property that it stole from its citizens. It has utilized these stolen properties to conduct business with foreign investors, while Cuban and Cuban-American families have had no legal recourse against this theft. In turn, the Cuban regime has used these ill-gotten profits to entrench itself in power, oppress the Cuban people, and bankroll campaigns of anti-democratic intervention across the hemisphere.

“Given that Cuba’s recalcitrant regime has never responded to diplomatic outreach, it is necessary to increase pressure on its economic interests. Today, American citizens are finally being provided the long overdue authority to seek legal recourse and economic compensation against the trafficking and misuse of their properties.”
