The DPRK's Foreign Minister has called the speech of Trump at the United Nations: "The Sound of a Dog Barking."
DPRK is the correct name of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
North Korea is a name that has been invented by the Yankee imperialists.

JG: With his nasty speech at the United Nations, Donald Trump has insulted all
the Nations of the World who are civilized and love peace.
Only 38% of Americans support this very disgusting president.
I have no doubts that he will be replaced in 2020 or impeached and
removed from office before then.

Link to the Garbage Article of CBS News.
Maybe Tillerson should contact Florida ambulance chaser Dan Newlin.
Is the CIA continuing its never ending efforts to destabiize the Cuban Goverment? YES! The USA is an evil nation.
They have been doing it since January 1, 1959.
We are dealing with truly EVIL PEOPLE IN WASHINGTON, D.C.
They are doing it in Venezuela too.
One day they will pay for their crimes throughout the world.

Scrambling utility workers restored power for more than 2 million Florida customers on Tuesday, but that left nearly 5 million households still in the dark after Hurricane Irma, including more than 834,000 in Tampa Bay.
82 hours ago we lost electric power at EC Apartments, a 16 stories building, due to hurricane Irma.
We are a community of more than 250 retired Seniors.
The weather forecast for today is VERY HOT. (89-90 Degrees F)
I hope that TECO (Tampa Electrc Company) will be able to give us better news today, and I hope that the rumors that is going to take them one to two weeks to restore electric power is false.

JG: Robert Menendez is the poster boy for corruption in the Democratic Party. He and his buddy, Dr. Melgen, both belong behind bars.
Capitalists are only good for sticking their hands in your pockets and grabbing as much $$$$$ as possible. Thy are innately dishonest.

I hope that he does not run again as a capitalist Democrat.

They are restoring electricity first to the wealthy areas of Polk : the largest private school, Saint Joseph Catholic School, Publix Supermarkets properties, McDonald's properties, Walmart properties.
Placed at the end of the line: blacks, poor people and low income Seniors.
Rosiell Polanco-Suera testified Florida eye doctor Salomon Melgen said he was "going to fix it" by talking to Menendez. She said that at the first visa interview in 2008, she and her sister, who also sought a visa, waited for hours and were treated abruptly. At the second interview, she said, they had little or no wait and the visa was approved that day.
A former Menendez staffer testified Monday that the senator told him to "call the ambassador" after the sisters' first application was denied. Prosecutors are seeking to show it was Menendez's improper influence that pushed the visa through.
Menendez is charged with accepting bribes from Melgen in exchange for helping his friend with business disputes and with the visas, which an indictment claims were for Melgen's girlfriends. Both men faced multiple fraud and bribery charges.

JG: Update: Sept 12, 2017, 6:45 p.m.
TECO (Tampa Electric Company) appears to be having great difficulties restoring eletric power to certain areas of Polk County. The rumors in the county are spreading fast and some are saying that it may take one to two weeks to return to normal times. I hope it doesn't happen that way.
At midnight tonight, it will be 48 hours without electric power at the Seniors building where I live. We have 16 floors and more than 200 Seniors and disabled people living there. The owners of the building (two mainstream Christian churches) take EXCELLENT CARE of the building.
Has the judge been bought? If so, by whom?
Crimial elements have a lot of power and influence in hyper-capitalist USA.
The Democratic Party is full of criminals. Menendez was showing them how to do it, and get away with it.
