This is a very, very big deal, the Florida Republican and Cuban-American said...I think really good things are coming from this. And so, you can't minimize the impact.....
President Trump is getting ready to place an unprecedented amount of economic pressure on Cubas communism regime and some of the non-U.S. companies that have invested there, according to a leading Republican lawmaker.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has signaled that Americans who decades ago had property stolen by Fidel Castros regime and sold to other foreign companies may soon be able to sue those companies to recoup their losses. That will intensify financial pressure on the island government, according to Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, and have ripple effects for authoritarian states around the world.
"A lot of the atrocities committed by the Maduro regime are committed by Cubans sent there by the Castro regime, Diaz-Balart told the Washington Examiner. The Castro regime is very fragile, at best. The Venezuelan money is drying up, and I think you're going to have a lot of companies that if they knew that they could get sued for trafficking in stolen properties, I think they're going to look elsewhere to invest. And so, I think that's a really important factor."

If only Cuber were to set up a ‘57 Cheby Assembly Plant, they would become economically viable...
Getting interesting. Who is going to stand up for the property owners from70 years ago? owners are dead. Kids to far removed.
Trump is such a meanie.
welcome to the west, you tinhorn tyrants. we aren’t enslaved by guys with guns, we’re enslaved by angry little lawyers.
Oh come on now, if you just discovered your grandparents’ valuable properties had been stolen and now there was the possibility of the property or the monetary value of the property could be recovered, wouldn’t you be interested? What makes you think the children and grandchildren of these cheated Cubans would be likewise interested?
Just realized that this is in part due to America flooding the market with energy... two for one deal — sink Venezuela and Cuba is a freebie. Ya, baby!
Oh, that is good.
Another example of the Trump doctrine of winning on the cheap - choke off our enemies incomes, rather than spend ours opposing them militarily.
China, Iran, Venezuela, North Korea, Cuba - all being taken down or reined in through economic measures.
Cheap? Absolutely— we don’t have to send our young kids over to some foriegn country to die in some war.
Yep....go after the purse every time!
You’d be surprised if there’s money to get who comes out of the woodwork.
by golly, all of the murdering oil producing thugocracies we created because of our insatiable lust for energy have got a thing or two coming now that we create our own energy.
now if we could just create our own iPhones.
Our guys are so wise!
Dad sold it to a young man for $75 who restored it from stem to stern. I remember when that young man brought it by the house to show us what he'd done . . . that fellow was good!
I found it interesting the the Nomad actually is a different body from the other 2 Door Station Wagons.
Amazing as to all of the ‘57 body styles available. Not so many these days.
Multiply by all of the engines/transmissions/axles to get to true complexity.
The Nomad seems to have a unique front door, among other unique body elements.
Communist Party heads are exploding everywhere.
One of my friends talks about his grandfather’s stolen rum factory. Castro burned his grandfather alive for not submitting. Grandma took the kids and all she had and cane here.
These are the most anti socialists folks i have ever seen.. however, they hate anything to do with stopping illegal immigration.
