LIVE: JOHN COUVILLON TALKS POLITICS

Louisiana News & politics focus on Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards and Louisiana legislature

With the release of an American aid worker egypt ari, who was unfairly held in an Egyptian prison for three years, President Trump’s new approach to the Middle East has been vindicated. For weeks, Trump administration officials had been working behind the scenes to secure Ms. Hijazi’s release. The negotiations paid off yesterday when she was allowed to leave Egypt and return home to the United States. Today, President Trump welcomed her to the White House and praised her “great strength” during her time in prison.

kimThe most helpful suggestion anyone could offer President Trump about the parlay he’s being forced into with North Korea’s Kim Jong-un is to settle the configuration of the table right away. LBJ’s 1968 Paris Peace talks with the North Vietnamese were stymied for a year because no one could agree on the shape the of the table. Eventually, three tables were employed; one round and two square ones that abutted the round one on each side. Once geometry was over the real work began.

hitler spicerSean Spicer is not the only one who has gotten toasted for making a reference to Hitler with another historical figure.

Last week, the Donald Trump press secretary, foolishly stepped into an "embarrassment slop" by claiming that even the former German dictator did not use gas on its own people.  After entering the “oh, no zone”, he suddenly tried to correct himself by claiming that Adolph Hitler and Assad did not use poisonous gas "in the same way" against his own people.  He stepped into the mud even deeper by remarkably and nervously calling the infamous concentration camps, “Holocaust Centers”.

kim putinPresident Donald Trump, recently, fired five-dozen rockets at an airfield in Syria that did little damage. Now, he’s dropped our biggest weapon short of a nuclear device, “The Mother of All Bombs,” on top of a tunnel in Afghanistan. The airfield strike told Assad that his house might be next; that Trump won’t hesitate to use a first strike option on another sovereign nation; and, that he’s willing to go eyeball-to-eyeball with the Russians who helped get him elected. That isn’t proof he didn’t sleep with the enemy, just that they’re no longer kissing.

Britain’s spy agencies played a crucial role in alerting their counterparts in Washington to contacts between members of Donald Trump’s campaign team and Russian intelligence operatives, the Guardian has been told.

maness fbOn Friday, the day after Trump ordered the attack on the Syrian air field, I saw a post by Colonel Rob Maness criticizing Trump's decision.  Retired Col Maness has been a very staunch supporter of candidate, president-elect and president Trump.  He is a full colonel in the United States Air Force.

trump cpacDonald Trump, finally, did something really presidential, and he did it using war powers. It wasn’t tweeting that Bill O’Reilly did nothing wrong to justify the massive walkout of the TV commentator’s Fox sponsors. It wasn’t any other of the, by now, dozens of hair-brained tweeted assertions that reveal the nonsense that occupies Trump’s thinking, mostly at night. It wasn’t a batch of executive orders, or appointments, that aided the better off. This time it meant something to everyone in the world.
