It is rather fitting that a distasteful party was planned to mark the end of a very disturbing period in New Orleans history. Today, masked city workers removed the statue of General Robert. E. Lee, the fourth monument labeled a “nuisance” by the New Orleans City Council. It is the most prominent monument on New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu’s hit list. This impressive and priceless monument has been in place for 133 years in the middle of a circle, also named after Lee.
If Donald Trump is looking for a “win”, he might need to wait for another day.
Yesterday, the assistant Attorney General ordered an investigation, headed by an old FBI pro, Robert Mueller.
Want to connect with government projects? Looking for government contracts? Want to work with larger companies here in Louisiana?
If so, perhaps this might be the opportunity you've been seeking:
With tax dollars scarce in Louisiana, this should be the time to discuss streamlining on the state and local levels. Just how many boards, commissions, water districts, sewer districts, parish auditors, law enforcement offices, and other special districts are spread throughout Louisiana? Some estimates are as high as 7,000. No one really seems to know. Would you believe that no agency, public or private, can list all the public bodies that exist in Louisiana today? And if no one knows that number, then it goes without saying that no one can even begin to know the overlapping costs.
As if things couldn’t get any worse for President Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin has offered to send Congress transcripts of the Oval Office meeting between Trump, almost famous Russian Ambassador, Sergey Kislyak, and Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov.

The Trump administration in meltdown? Is the Trump train falling off its track? This is exactly what appears to be the case
According to conservative columnist Quin Hillyer, Trump should not be President.
That comment puts it lightly compared to some of the other statements Hillyer made in our Bayoubuzz Facebook Live interview earlier today.
The media smells blood in the Potomac River. They sense the President they hate could be removed from office. Never mind that he won a landslide, winning electoral votes in 31 states. The media hates the President’s agenda and they hate that he defied their wishes and expectations by winning last November.
Did New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu and the City of New Orleans err when it took down the statue of P.G.T. Beauregard last night?
During the campaign President Donald Trump posed the question, “Wouldn’t it be nice if we had a better relationship with Russia?” Who would’ve thought Trump’s concept of a better relationship was to share our most highly classified information with that country? The way things are going the Russian mission might as well move into the West Wing of the White House.
On Monday, the Louisiana black caucus walked out of the House of Representatives after that body approved HB 71, legislation that would prohibits state and local government entities from taking actions with respect to removal or destruction of public military memorials.
