    I'm going to have to respectfully disagree with you on this one. I don't see at all how Dolores is going out of her way to defend Hipolito Mejia at all. If anything according to the timeline (I'm assuming she researched) she is simply stating the facts. At least this is what I see.

    Which facts? She was totally incorrect with regard to Ramfis ineligibility to run for president and has not provided any solid proof to demonstrate Leonel's U.S. citizenship claims are false; with regard to Hipolito's citizenship, I agree it's not very clear but I am honest about my inclination to believe that he does have it as I find him to be very sleazy and it is not uncommon for heads of state to have more than one citizenship to facilitate an exile should it be necessary, among other "benefits".

    Additionally, for anyone questioning my defense of Ramfis candidacy, let me make myself very clear: I believe he is the best choice right now to deal with the biggest threats facing the DR right now in terms of corruption, threats to our sovereignty, culture, existence as a people, etc., and Iappreciate his U.S. upbringing and perspectives as well as his being a fresh face to the usual 'palate' of politicos that have been the M.O. in the DR since the days of after his grandfather's regime.

    Hipólito Mejía recognizes the fundamentals behind Ramfis Domínguez Trujillo's popularity. In essence, its the fault of Dominican politicians for the way they have governed the country and he includes himself in that. He said that Dominican politicians are a national frustration.

    Israel possibly supports Ramfis Domínguez Trujillo, because his father saved thousands of Jews during the Holocaust. At least, that's what this is lead to believe in this Jewish dinner.

    Will Israel offer help, in case Ramfis becomes president, in border controls?

    Roughly a week ago Ramfis was interviewed in a staple of Dominican morning programs, Telematutino 11.
