News Roundup! Priestap’s Interview, Discharge Petition, Closing the Southern Border, Iran Fuel Sanctions, FL Party Affiliation Data, 9th Circuit…..

Representative Doug Collins of Georgia decided to release Bill Priestap’s Interview earlier this morning on the House floor.

I think Mexico heard our President loud and clear and are stepping up their efforts in order to have our border remain open. At the end of the day, I think our President will shut the border at the end of this week.

What I admire most about our President is that Americans come before everything else whenever he makes a decision.

Representative Steve Scalise is filing a Discharge Petition to bypass Nancy Pelosi & force every member of the House to go on record on where they stand on the Born Alive Act. 218 votes are needed to move forward.

8 countries got a waiver from the fuel sanctions placed on Iran. The sanctions were imposed on November, 4th.

From the article linked above:

Washington has pledged to eventually halt all purchases of crude oil from Iran globally but for now it said eight countries – China, India, South Korea, Japan, Italy, Greece, Taiwan and Turkey – can continue imports without penalty. Crude exports contribute one-third of Iran’s government revenues.

There won’t be any waivers going forward.

From the article linked above:

Three of the eight countries to which Washington granted waivers to import Iranian oil have now cut their shipments from Iran to zero, a U.S. special representative said on Tuesday.

“There are better market conditions for us to accelerate our path to zero. We are not looking to grant any waivers or exceptions to our sanctions regime,” Hook said.

A senior Trump administration official told reporters on Monday that the U.S. government was considering additional sanctions against Iran that would target areas of its economy that have not been hit before.

Based on Jared’s statement last night to Laura about Florida ex felons registering as Republicans in larger numbers than Democrats, I decided to take a look at the Party Affiliation numbers since 2016 up until February 28, 2019.

Our President is transforming the 9th Circuit! After the remaining nominees are confirmed, there will be 16 Democrat Appointed Judges versus 13 Republican Appointed Judges.

If our President is able to replace 2 more Democrat Appointed Judges (9 of the active Judges are Clinton Appointees), we will have a MAJORITY on the 9th Circuit (15 to 14).

From the article linked above:

For the first time in more than three decades, Republican-appointed judges will soon occupy nearly half the seats on the left-leaning 9th Circuit Court of Appeals — dealing a setback to progressive legal advocates who have long seen the court as a safe bet for favorable rulings.

The Atlanta Federal Reserve revised their 1st Quarter real GDP rate earlier today. It remained at 2.1%.

Lets keep on WINNING!
