Lombardi: Biden Continues To Show He Must Go

Congress Must Impeach Biden At Once To Save American Lives

Joe Biden is showing the world he will not stand up to terrorists. The United States cannot allow him in office one day longer”

— Jac Lombardi

MANHATTAN, IL, UNITED STATES , August 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today, Jack Lombardi, Republican Candidate for Congress in Illinois’ 16th Congressional District, called, again called for Congress to begin impeachment proceedings against Joe Biden immediately following Biden’s statements regarding leaving Americans stranded in Afghanistan. Lombardi said he is not taking impeachment lightly, but that Biden has clearly demonstrated in his statements and actions that he is not up to continuing in office. Lombardi said that Biden has left hundred of Americans basically as hostages of the Taliban and then blames them, the Afghans, and Donald Trump for the predicament he created. Joe Biden either through cowardice or incompetence has abandoned Americans in danger, something no American president has ever done. Joe Biden is showing the world he will not stand up to terrorists. The United States cannot allow him in office one day longer. Congress must impeach him immediately.

“Joe Biden has abandoned American citizens to the Taliban,” said Jack Lombardi. He gave up Americans to terrorist threats. Joe Biden has abdicated his role as Commander-in-chief. He abandoned his post in the face of the Taliban and clearly showed his incompetence. Congress must begin impeachment proceedings immediately. American lives depend on Congress impeaching him at once.

“I do not take impeachment lightly, it should only be used in extreme cases,” concluded Lombardi. “This is such a case. It is not a Republican or Democratic issue. It’s an American security issue. Joe Biden’s first responsibility is the safety of America and its citizens. And he has failed in this. Joe Biden must go; our national security is at risk every second he remains at the helm.”

Why EB-5 Investors Should Invest Today in a Direct Project at $500K

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, August 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — EB5 Affiliate Network (EB5AN), a leading EB-5 consultancy, regional center operator, and fund manager, will host a free webinar, “Why Direct EB-5 Today at $500K” with guest panelist Edward Beshara, Esq., of Beshara, P.A on Thursday, September 2, 2021, at 3:00 PM EDT. Click here to register for the webinar or to watch a video recording of the webinar after the webinar takes place.

Following the sunset date of the EB-5 Regional Center Program on June 30, 2021, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is accepting only I-526 petitions for direct EB-5 investments. Additionally, on June 22, 2021, a California magistrate judge invalidated the EB-5 Program Modernization Rule that came into effect on November 21, 2019. Consequently, the minimum investment amount for projects located in targeted employment areas (TEAs) has returned to $500,000 ($1.0 million if not located in a TEA).

To help investors make the most of the opportunity to make direct EB-5 investments of $500,000 in projects located in TEAs, the webinar addresses several frequently asked questions and provides an overview of the benefits of multi-unit direct EB-5 investments. The following questions will be covered in the webinar:

• How is a direct EB-5 investment better than a regional center investment?
• How does a direct project show 10 new jobs?
• How can I receive a return on my $500K investment?
• When will my $500K investment be returned?
• How can I evaluate immigration risk in a direct EB-5 project?
• How can I evaluate financial risk in a direct EB-5 project?
• What are multi-unit direct EB-5 investments, and what benefits do they offer?
• Will a multi-unit direct EB-5 investment diversify my immigration and financial risk?

EB5AN Managing partner Sam Silverman noted that there is likely a limited window for investing at $500,000 and encouraged prospective investors to take advantage of the opportunity while it remains available. “The EB-5 regional center program is likely to get renewed in the coming months,” said Silverman. “When it is renewed, it is highly likely that the EB-5 program’s minimum investment amount will be increased.”

“It is important to conduct due diligence on all prospective EB-5 projects, either direct or regional center, in order to make an informed investment decision that considers all financial and immigration risk aspects of the investment,” Edward C. Beshara, Esq., managing partner of Beshara, P.A., added.

Created by the U.S. Congress in 1990, the EB-5 program provides a clear pathway to permanent residency and citizenship. Tens of thousands of families from nearly every country have successfully immigrated by making qualifying investments in U.S. projects and business enterprises. The EB-5 visa is popular among people currently living abroad and those already working in the United States on nonimmigrant visas.


EB5 Affiliate Network is a national EB-5 regional center operator and consulting firm that has been trusted by 1,800+ EB-5 investors from 60+ countries. EB5AN works with direct EB-5 and regional center EB-5 project developers and sponsors to assemble high-quality EB-5 projects across the country. EB5AN also works with EB-5 investors from around the world to identify high-quality, low-risk EB-5 investments and to structure EB-5 projects for those who seek to create their own.

Beshara, P.A., is a top U.S. immigration law firm exclusively dedicated to immigration law. Their highly reputable legal services are available to EB-5 investors, regional centers, and developers. The firm is recognized as one of the top EB-5 visa-focused law firms in the U.S.

Award-Winning Author, Adrienne Rubin, Examines the Successful Aghan Businesswomen Who Have Been Forced to Shut Down

Adrienne Rubin, Acclaimed Author.

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, August 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — From CEOs to coffee shop owners, Afghan women entrepreneurs have shut down their businesses and fled the country or gone into hiding, fearing reprisals after the Taliban's takeover. Thousands of Afghan businesswomen shut up shop. Almost 57,000 women own enterprises in Afghanistan. Female entrepreneurs worry over safety and income

Acclaimed author, Adrienne Rubin, shares her thoughts on this matter as she is deeply affected by such tragic events. "As of June, 2021, Congress had approved the expenditure of $3.9 million to aid the civilians in Afghanistan, most of it for COVID-19 vaccines, emergency medical assistance, and shelter and food to the needy," states Rubin. "Because Afghan women were considered an important part of the economy, $787 million was designated specifically for businesses run by women."

Aug 26 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – Ten days ago, Nadia was a successful businesswoman running a popular cafe in Kabul, championing female empowerment on television and mentoring scores of fellow women entrepreneurs. Today, the 33-year-old MBA graduate is holed up in a secret location in the Afghan capital – fearing for her life, unable to provide for family and resigned to the belief that her many achievements of the past two decades now amount to nothing.

Rubin continues, "The US is expected to donate a similar amount in 1922. However, this allocation has yet to be decided. Ideally, our goal in the US has always been to support a secure, unified, democratic, and self-reliant Afghanistan. However, with the withdrawal of US troops and the Taliban in control, the Afghan people lost their sense of freedom overnight."

Nadia, whose name has been changed to protect her identity, told the Thomson Reuters Foundation by phone from Kabul, "There was no choice when the Taliban entered Kabul, I had to run and hide. I am well known in Afghanistan. Now I am worried they will come for me and my family. Over the past 20 years, so many women like me have worked hard to make our place in society and make a future for our country. Now, we are back to zero."

These successful businesswomen have been ostracized and all progress has been reverted back to its original state. Rubin concludes, "It happened too fast. Depression and hopelessness have suddenly surged as the austere control of Taliban rule begins, and women with viable businesses once again don their burkas."


Adrienne Rubin:


Adrienne Rubin is a wife, mother, teacher, and businesswoman who started a wholesale jewelry company from scratch. Originally a high school French teacher, Adrienne published two cookbooks for charity before making the decision to go into business as an importer of fine jewelry, selling to the trade. Selling successfully to stores all over the United States, she eventually opened Avanti Fine Jewelry, her own jewelry store in Beverly Hills.

An entrepreneur, risk-taker, and iconoclast, Adrienne believes that, even though honesty and integrity are losing ground to greed and a lack of ethics in today’s world, rewards will come to those who persist. She is passionate about showing aspiring business owners how to put the “I can do that!” into everyday practice.

As the recipient of the 2019 Jane Wyman Humanitarian Award from The Arthritis Foundation, Adrienne has been recognized for her efforts to raise funds and awareness for this painful disease. Today her recent pursuits involve investing in real estate and spending time with her husband, her children, and grandchildren in Los Angeles.

Brian Dean Abramson, Esq., LL.M. Announces Second Edition of Legal Treatise "Vaccine, Vaccination, and Immunization Law"

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, August 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — I am pleased to announce the forthcoming publication of the second print edition of my legal treatise, "Vaccine, Vaccination, and Immunization Law," coauthored with Dorit Reiss, Peter O. Safir, and Jay Thomas. Publication is anticipated between late 2021 and early 2022 releasing in the United States, and it is made possible by an agreement between Bloomberg Law, as owner and publisher of the electronic version, and the American Health Law Association as publisher of the print volume.

With vaccine law rising sharply in importance over the course of the pandemic, it is timely and useful to introduce a second edition of this treatise, with numerous areas of updated and expanded content.

This work represents a massive expansion over the first print edition, with updates throughout, including content on COVID-19 vaccine development and mandates. The second edition will also contain entirely new chapters on:

¤ Employer/employee vaccination mandates, incentivization, facilitation, and promotion efforts;
¤ International and comparative vaccine law, including profiles of vaccine laws of selected countries
¤ Legal issues regarding anti-vaccine activism and responses

Other new materials include new or greatly expanded coverage of topics such as FDA Emergency Use Authorization, the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program, applicability of Worker's Compensation for alleged vaccine injuries, OSHA standards and requirements, rights of minors seeking vaccination without parental consent, forced vaccination concerns, vaccination mandates for animals, and pandemic and bioterrorism response. I hope that everyone seeking information in this field will enjoy this volume and find it useful.


Professor Brian Dean Abramson, Esq., LL.M. is a leading expert on vaccine law, having completed teaching the Vaccine Law course for the Florida International University College of Law, and having previously served as a law clerk to a judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, reviewing appeals of both vaccine injury claims and vaccine patent claims.

He published the first edition of the legal treatise, "Vaccine, Vaccination, and Immunization Law," in 2018, overcoming doubts as to whether there was sufficient interest to support a comprehensive legal treatise in this field. In 2021 he established Vaccination Program Counsel to advise individuals, organizations, and entities on matters of vaccine law, including legally compliant vaccination policies and procedures.

His vaccine law expertise has recently been quoted by Reuters, Bloomberg Law, the L.A. Times, Il Sussidiario, the Epoch Times, and The Conversation, and his writings have been cited in numerous academic publications.

Decarbonization: The transition has barely begun; By Graeme Baker, Co-Portfolio Manager, Ninety One Global Environment

Graeme Baker, Co-Portfolio Manager, Global Environment for Ninety One

Understanding how the flow of capital can help solve the climate crisis could be the single most important action of our generation.

It's our hope these recent reports will galvanize quicker political action and leave the investment industry in no doubt that understanding the flow of capital can help solve the climate crisis…”

— Graeme Baker, Co-Portfolio Manager for Ninety One

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, August 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The summer of 2021, with its record-breaking heat waves, devastating floods and wildfires, has vividly illustrated the realities of climate change. This season has served as an uncomfortable reminder that the climate crisis has still barely been addressed, and it is clear that we urgently need to do much, much more as a global economy. This also means that tackling this problem presents us with significant growth opportunities.

We’re not moving fast enough
The 16th edition of the World Economic Forum's Global Risks Report reminds us, once again, that failure to take action on climate change is the biggest risk that we face as a species. In fact, it’s the top risk not just by impact but also by likelihood.

The UN IPCC’s Sixth Assessment Report confirms with science what we have all feared to be true – that humanity has had an ‘unequivocal’ influence on global warming and that widespread and rapid changes to the climate system have already begun. Every 0.1 degree of warming matters and, unless urgent action is taken to decarbonize our global economy, global warming of 1.5°C and even 2°C (vs pre-industrial levels) will be exceeded in the current century.

The findings of both reports are alarming in themselves, while also underscoring that we need to act, and that we need to act quickly.

Five years after the Paris Agreement (COP21), in which political leaders pledged Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) to curb greenhouse gas emissions, many of those NDCs are up for renewal with leaders needing to pledge ahead of COP26. The UN Interim Synthesis Report released in February this year states that many regions’ pledges and NDCs have not been ambitious enough, potentially yielding the equivalent of a mere 0.5% reduction in emissions from 2010 to 2030, when this figure should be closer to 45%. So as we head towards COP26, we hope to see more positive news and announcements from many countries around the world.

Once-in-a-lifetime investment opportunities abound
The scale of the immense change in how we function as economies means that we have a rare opportunity to invest to support the step change needed. The latest International Energy Agency (IEA) Report highlights that a four-fold increase in wind, solar and renewable energy capacity is required by 2030 from where we are today. It also states that, by 2030, the number of electric cars on the road needs to increase by 18 times and the annual battery production for electric vehicles by 41 times.

This means that significantly more capital must be spent in these areas, and the focus needs to shift to sustainable supply chains. The report further states that we need to spend over $4 trillion by 2030 if we are to have any hope of getting to net zero – a huge increase from the just under $1 trillion that’s been spent over the last few years.

Can we eat our way to net zero?
At Ninety One, we believe this provides an exciting, long-term, potentially once-in-a-lifetime structural growth opportunity for investors. An important point to highlight is that the IEA Report focuses only on the energy system, which accounts for about two-thirds of global carbon emissions. There are additional areas that we believe should be prioritized, and one of these is the future of food.

The global population is expected to increase to nine billion by 2050. To meet the demand associated with this number of people, food production will need to increase by 70%. What’s more, we need to achieve this in a carbon-efficient way, with less land and in increasingly challenging environmental conditions. Almost 20% of global carbon emissions are derived from ‘growing things’ for consumption – whether that’s plants or animals – and it is becoming quite clear that massive change in agriculture, livestock and the supply chain is urgently needed to decarbonise this sector across the world.

One area where we have carried out significant research is the decarbonization of meat. We see significant potential for growth in plant- and cellular-based meat because they have significantly lower carbon emissions relative to what they are replacing within the meat supply chain. We expect this market to potentially grow from tens of billions of dollars currently to over $300 billion by 2035.

Other opportunities include the natural-based products and enzymes used in plant- and cellular-based meat alternatives; and biochemicals and biosurfactants. Producers of these are helping to replace petrochemicals in many different industries, for example, the use of natural products to improve crop yields and resource efficiency when growing plants for consumption.

It’s no longer responsible or even viable to maintain current forms of agriculture, infrastructure, urban planning, land use, and economic development. Global movements on climate change have put pressure on leaders to take action and address the climate crisis like never before, and what is decided by their pledges ahead of COP26 will be key to how effective countries are at tackling the climate crisis in the next ten years.

It is our sincere hope that the findings of recent reports will galvanize far quicker political action, and leave the investment industry in no doubt that understanding how the flow of capital can help solve the climate crisis will be the single most important action of our generation.

Celebrity Dentist, Dr. Jay Grossman, Examines How Medicare Might Cover Dental Care for the First Time in 50 Years

Dr. Jay Grossman

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, August 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Democrats are maneuvering to add dental benefits to Medicare for the first time in its history, a proposal that is part of the large budget bill moving through Congress. The impact would be enormous: Nearly half of Americans 65 and over didn't visit a dentist in the past year, and nearly one in five have lost all their natural teeth.

Acclaimed celebrity dentist, Dr. Jay Grossman, believes dental care is crucial to everyone's needs thought it often goes overlooked. "Dental care has been long neglected as a benefit in most insurance plans. We get a job and expect medical care, rarely is dental care offered, and if offered, has a maximum allowable cap that has not changed in decades, affording very little coverage to the patient."

But first, lawmakers must overcome resistance from a key group: dentists themselves, who want the dental benefits to be offered only to poorer patients and face a potential hit to their income. So far, no Republicans have endorsed the plan.

Grossman continues, "It is interesting to note that about 50% of the population has dental insurance and 50% of the population sees the dentist each year. One can conclude that this is the same group of people, meaning that without dental insurance, teeth are often neglected. This leads to pain, loss of work, loss of teeth, inability to eat, esthetic issues that decrease the opportunity to seek work and Mal-nourishment as the number of teeth in one's mouth decreases."

Poor adults in other states have even fewer resources. Medicaid is not required to cover adult dental services, and many states do not pay for any services at all, while others cover only emergency treatments, like tooth extractions. Vermont’s program is among the most generous in the nation. On Capitol Hill, the proposal to add a Medicare dental benefit has near-universal support among Democrats, and many health industry and consumer groups back it, too. With the Democrats’ large policy ambitions but narrow majority, its passage is not assured.

"Offering dental insurance would help those with minimal resources gain basic care, which will enhance one's ability to eat, nourish themself, maintain a job where a smile is important, and decrease health issues overall," concludes Grossman.


Dr. Jay Grossman (http://www.conciergedentistry.com) has a concierge dental practice in the Brentwood neighborhood of West Los Angeles since 1991 with several specialists offering "continuity of care", all specialties under one roof. He is a graduate of NYU College of Dentistry as well as a former Lieutenant in the United States Navy Dental Corps. He is a current Professor at UCLA College of Dentistry and Professor at NYU College of Dentistry and a former Professor at Western University College of Dental Medicine. Dr. Grossman is a speaker on the national stage, and the founder of Homeless Not Toothless, an organization that has donated over $7.7 million in free dental care to over 100,000 homeless Veterans and foster children.

Dr. Jay Grossman and his Concierge Dentistry team’s goal has always been simple: to deliver the finest dental care available. Using state-of-the-art dental technology, they have provided modern imaging capabilities that allow their patients to clearly see the reasons for procedures and the intended results. They recognize that patients are individuals with different goals and needs, and they strive to provide a soothing and educational environment where extraordinary results are realized.

Gerald Celente, World's Top Trend Forecaster, was the first to predict in 2001, “U.S. Will Lose Afghan War”

Celente, in a movie based on his book, “Zizi and Honeboy,” starring Doris Roberts from “Everbody Loves Raymond,” was banned by the media for speaking the truth.

We’re going to lose in Afghanistan”

— Gerald Celente

KINGSTON, NY, USA, August 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — On December 14, 2000, USA TODAY ran a headline based on Gerald Celente’s Trends Journal annual forecast: “2001 Will Not Be Our Year, Trend Seer Says.” Nine months before 9/11, Celente said that Americans wouldn’t be safe at home or abroad and warned of an attack against America.

At a time when President Bush warned anyone who would not support his war, “you are with us or you are with the terrorists,” Celente was accused of being anti-American because he forecast the Afghan War would end in US defeat. As a result, he was blackballed and banned from the mainstream media, after frequent appearances on Oprah, The Today Show, Good Morning America, CNN, MSNBC, NPR, and more.

Once again, Celente has been blackballed by the media for forecasting a Covid War debacle. As he’s said many times, “when all else fails, they take you to war,” just as Bush did following the Dot.com bust. He’s now forecasting that the U.S. will not only lose the Covid War, but they are at the onset of WWIII if current trends are not reversed. Celente’s magazine, Trends Journal, continues to report on geopolitical and socioeconomic trends shaping the future, and what you can do to prepare, prevail, and profit, now and in the years ahead.

Gerald Celente is the Founder of the Trends Institute and Publisher of the Trends Journal. With a 40-year track record of identifying, tracking, and forecasting trends, Celente is world-renowned as today’s #1 Trend Forecaster. Celente has earned the reputation as a trusted name in trends for his many accurate forecasts; among them, the 1987 Stock Market crash, 2000 Dot.com bust, “Gold Bull Run,” the “Panic of 2008,” rise of organic foods and bottled water, the popularity of gourmet coffee (long before Starbucks was a household name), whole health healing trends, and much more.

Celente, who developed the Globalnomic methodology to identify, track, forecast, and manage trends, is a political atheist. Unencumbered by political dogma, rigid ideology, or conventional wisdom, Celente, whose motto is “Think for Yourself,” observes and analyzes current events forming future trends for what they are – not for how he wants them to be. The Trends Journal is a weekly magazine that presents Facts and Truth over fear and propaganda to help subscribers prepare for What’s Next in these increasingly turbulent times.

Gerald is available for live videos, interviews, podcasts, and other partnerships. View the trailer for his movie, "Zizi and Honeyboy," at the link here.

Palmer has refused to cosponsor the congressional resolution. The billboards inform residents of Rep. Palmer’s district of his broken pledge on term limits.

The U.S. Term Limits amendment has been introduced in Congress calling for six years total in the U.S. House of Representatives and twelve years maximum in the U.S. Senate. Senate Joint Resolution 3 (SJR3), sponsored by Texas Senator Ted Cruz has 15 sponsors and cosponsors. House Joint Resolution 12 (HJR12) sponsored by South Carolina Rep. Ralph Norman has 69 House members on board. Support is expected to exceed 100 Congress members during the 117th Congress.

“Gary Palmer made a promise to the citizens of his district to cosponsor the U.S. Term Limits amendment if elected to Congress,” said Nicolas Tomboulides, Executive Director of U.S. Term Limits. “Now he is choosing to break that pledge. We are alerting Alabamans to his broken promise. Rep. Palmer should apologize to his constituents and keep his word.”

U.S. Term Limits is the oldest and largest grassroots term limits advocacy group in the country. We connect term limits supporters with their legislators and work to pass term limits on all elected officials, particularly on the U.S. Congress.

Laurie has worked with both state and national legislators to create and strengthen laws to protect animals; authored a curriculum to assist law enforcement for investigating and prosecuting animal abuse cases; starred in “Animal PD,” a television series on Nat Geo WILD showcasing stories of Alaqua’s animal rescue efforts in conjunction with law enforcement; and created the Unconditional Love program providing trained companion dogs free of charge to PTSD patients, the elderly and special needs individuals, and offering inmates a contributing role in the process. She currently serves as the State Director for Florida for Animal Wellness Action, the District Leader in Northwest Florida for The Humane Society of the United States, and is a Board Member for the Florida Wildlife Federation. Laurie is available for speaking engagements.

About Alaqua Animal Refuge
Alaqua Animal Refuge is a no-kill animal shelter and sanctuary, located in the panhandle of Florida. As the Southeast’s premier 501(c)3 refuge, Alaqua believes that every abused, neglected and homeless animal deserves a second chance. Committed to providing protection, shelter and care to animals in need, this private, non-profit Refuge also offers a full-service adoption center, educational outreach, and community programs that extend far beyond their geographic location. Since its inception in 2007, Alaqua, led by Founder Laurie Hood, has become a recognized leader in animal rescue, welfare, cruelty prevention, and advocacy. Alaqua is currently in the midst of a relocation and expansion capital campaign to build a one-of-a-kind facility—the first in the United States—on 100 acres. The new facility and sanctuary will allow Alaqua to continue to do the important work of animal rescue and rehabilitation, as well as be an educational and training center for animal welfare advocates as a place that will inspire, empower, and educate others to make change in our society and recreate the model worldwide.
