Preliminary numbers for this year’s report, released Friday, show that between July 2018 and July 2019, the state’s population grew from 4,195,300 to 4,236,400—an overall 1 percent increase.

In part, that’s because a story like this is a hard sell to the masses: A beloved French actress (Huppert), diagnosed with cancer, draws her extended family to a vacation on the coast of Portugal to settle her affairs … Read More

Viktor Fedorovych Yanukovych was the President from 2010 until his ouster in Feb 2014 by REVOLUTION. He was a known Russian sympathizer so Ukrainians removed him. People he placed in power were corrupt and are the people Trump is referencing in his defense. RUSSIANS – just another link to our President’s ties to Russia. This isn’t about elections, this is about a Russian Asset running our country.
