Congressman Jeff Van Drew spoke with President Trump this week after announcing his decision to join the Republican Party; saying “socialism has no place in the United States of America.”
“There are a few points I really wanted to make… I’ve been a Democrat for a lot of years. For years I’ve given everything to my people in my district,” said Congressman Jeff Van Drew.
“This is the greatest country on the face of the earth… I don’t want anybody to ever tell me there isn’t American exceptionalism. Again, I’m a capitalist. Socialism has no place in the United States of America. This country can afford everyone opportunity,” he added.

ADD IT TO THE LIST: Hillary Blames Supreme Court Decision for 2016 Election Loss
Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton continued her worldwide excuses tour this week; asserting a Supreme Court decision regarding the “Voting Rights Act” had a major impact in her 2016 loss to Donald Trump.
“Now, I was the first person who ran for president in more than 50 years without the protection of the Voting Rights Act. And let me just say, it makes a difference,” said Clinton at an event hosted by the American Federation of Teachers.
“The latest remarks were seemingly the first time she alleged a structural disadvantage created by the Supreme Court. In 2013, the Court drew Democrats’ ire when it struck down a portion of the Voting Rights Act, which was passed in 1965 as a way to secure voting rights for African Americans,” reports Fox News.
.@HillaryClinton: "You can get the nomination. You can win the popular vote. And you can lose the Electoral College and therefore the election for these 4 reasons. Number One: Voter suppression."

“Voters faced intimidation and harassment that echoed some of the worst chapters in our nation’s history,” she said. “Voter ID requirements amounted to a modern-day poll tax. Voter ID requirements, which were literally made up for the purpose of preventing certain people from actually being able to cast a vote that would be counted. We saw fewer voting places, long lines, and malfunctioning equipment — again, in certain places.”
To date, Clinton has blamed her 2016 loss on the mainstream media, Facebook, Barack Obama, Bernie Sanders, the FBI, James Comey, misogyny, racism, local newspapers, Russia, and more.

DEM DAM BREAKING? First Democrat Says He Will Likely Vote ‘NO’ on Impeachment
New Jersey Congressman Jefferson Van Drew confirmed Friday he will likely vote “no” on impeaching President Trump should Speaker Pelosi bring the Articles to the House Floor.
“Van Drew represents a district that had long been held by the GOP until his election in 2018. He was one of only two Democrats to break party lines in late October and vote against a resolution establishing procedures for the public phase of the impeachment inquiry,” reports The Hill.
“Van Drew said that the weeks since then — which have featured several public hearings with witnesses to Trump’s dealings with Ukraine and constitutional experts — haven’t changed his position that impeachment isn’t warranted,” adds the website.
“I’ll look at new information that’s presented. I’ll always have an open mind. But where I am now is where I was before,” Van Drew told The Hill.
“Nobody ever forces me how to vote,” Van Drew added.
