duke beardLouisiana Treasurer John Kennedy leads in the most recent US Senate Race poll as six candidates, including David Duke, are scheduled to debate November 2 at an African American University in New Orleans. Duke has signaled that he will attend the first televised debate since the 1990's

The poll by Mason Dixons, from Florida:
John Kennedy - Republican 24.2%
Foster Campbell - Democrat 18.9%
Caroline Fayard - Democrat 12.0%
Charles Boustany - Republican 11.4%
John Fleming - Republican 10.2%
David Duke - Republican 5.1%
Rob Maness - Republican 3.4%

Colonel Rob Maness did not make the 5.0 percent cut.

The poll differs from another recent poll by JMC Analytics and Polling, an electronic poll commissioned by Republican Congressman John Fleming. In that poll, Louisiana Treasurer Kennedy is mired in double digits in a virtual tie with Fleming and Republican Congressman Charles Boustany for the second spot. Leading the pack was Foster Campbell and trailing in 5th place spot was Caroline Fayard.

In that poll, David Duke did not qualify for the LPB debate.

Jim Brown discusses the debate and the significance of Duke’s presence in a recent video interview with Stephen Sabludowsky, publisher of

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
