Jindal Fundraiser

There surely will be no cottoning up in Texas as Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal attends a fundraiser in his honor for his gubernatorial reelection campaign. After the fundraiser, is travelling to Arlington, TX to attend the Cotton Bowl Classic between LSU and Texas A&M. Governor Jindal will participate in the coin toss before the game.

 

 

There are reports that Jindal has over ten million dollars in his campaign chest.  So far, Governor Jindal has no challengers.

 

Steve Scalise and the Constitution

Republican Congressman Steve Scalise included the below in his email newsletter:  

On Thursday, we started what should become a new tradition by reading the Constitution aloud on the Floor of the House of Representatives.  This marks the first time in the history of the United States that the complete Constitution has been read on the House Floor.  I was honored to participate and hope this will be the first step towards getting our country refocused on the principles spelled out in this historic document.

Jindal For President

The Reuter News Agency has listed Louisiana Governor  Bobby Jindal as one of the “list of Republican contenders, many of whom have built robust fundraising operations and paid repeated visits to the early battleground states of Iowa and New Hampshire.”

Some of the others on the list include Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin, and Chris Christie.  Jindal was one of the “contenders” featured in the article.

President Buddy Roemer

According to John Maginnis, there might be a candidate for President of the United States from Louisiana.  In his Fax Weekly, Maginnis quotes Roemer   "It certainly interests me. There is a lot of work to be done," the former governor and bank president told LaPolitics.

 "I am making no announcement. I am not running today," he said. "It will take months to work out if it happens. I don't want to scare anyone."

Democrats and Congressman Jeff Landry

The Democratic National Committee took a shot at new Republican Louisiana US Congressman, Jeff Landry this week by stating in an email:

As reported byPolitico this morning, incoming U.S. Rep. Jeff Landry will begin his career in Washington surrounded by lobbyists and special interests paying $50,000 at a fundraiser at the exclusive W Hotel in Washington.  The fundraiser will benefit members of America’s New Majority, which includes Landry.  Democratic National Committee Spokeswoman Joanne Peters released the following statement:

 

“In the latest example of Republican hypocrisy, Rep.-elect Jeff Landry will begin his career in Washington by taking money from the special interests he claimed to oppose on the campaign trail.  Before he is even sworn into office, Landry will schmooze with lobbyists paying $50,000 at a lavish Washington hotel. While families in Louisiana are struggling, Landry will be living the life of luxury, if even for one night, at the expense of special-interest lobbyists. Landry has made it clear, before even casting his first vote, who it is that he will really represent in Congress – not the people of Louisiana, but Washington insiders and lobbyists.”

Last week, Landry sent out an email showing his pleasure with an article from Politico that stated he is one of 10 freshman Republicans to watch on energy issues, according to politico.com.

 

Landry has been assigned to the Transportation & Infrastructure and Natural Resources Committees, was humbled by the recognition.

 

 

Politico.com said: “Landry is eager to use his seat on the Natural Resources Committee to end what he calls the administration’s ‘de facto moratorium’ on oil and gas drilling in the Gulf and allow the permitting process to move more swiftly.”

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
