Keystone Pipeline, Cassidy and Landrieu tweets, Maness and Angela Hill talk Palin
Written by 

 palinThe Keystone Pipe political war continues today as Republican Congressman Bill Cassidy and Democratic US Senator Mary Landrieu fight the campaign PR battles.

Early Friday, the Louisiana GOP sent out this email statement:


The Republican Party of Louisiana released the following statement today in recognition of the passing of Dr. Bill Cassidy’s Keystone XL Pipeline bill:

“Today, Dr. Cassidy has once again kept his promise to Louisiana with the passage of his Keystone XL pipeline bill. Time after time, Dr. Cassidy has proven he can deliver on the issues that matter most to Louisianans, which is why so many people are supporting his campaign. That is the kind of leadership Louisiana wants from its U.S. Senator and it is the kind of leadership that Dr. Cassidy will continue to provide every day.”- Roger Villere, Chairman of theLAGOP


Cassidy, likewise, is taking credit for the passage and slamming his opponent, Landrieu.

His tweets following the passage:

Bill Cassidy @BillCassidy

2,247 days to act, and nothing. Why is Mary Landrieu just now moving on #KeystoneXL?

Senator Landrieu, meanwhile acknowledges cooperation of the House and Senate.  She does not share the Republican Party’s appreciation.  Obviously, Landrieu was able to reverse the US Senate leadership decision to not call an up or down vote on the legislation.  That vote is likely next week.

Mary Landrieu

I’m glad that Congress passed its copy of the Senate #Keystone bill. Their cooperation will help make 42,000 new U.S. jobs a reality. –Mary


Former candidate and Tea Partier Rob Maness issued this statement regarding an upcoming event this weekend. 

This Saturday will mark just 3 weeks until the runoff election and I'm thrilled to tell you that Gov. Sarah Palin will join us in Louisiana at a Unity Rally for our next Senator, Dr. Bill Cassidy.

I'll join both of them in Monroe, along with Phil Robertson, to stress the importance of Getting-Out-to-Vote.

We simply can't trust the national political media and assume that this race is already won; we need to get our friends and neighbors fired-up and motivated to vote on December 6!

Sarah Palin endorsed Maness during the general election.

Interestingly, one of the voices of WWL Radio tweeted her comments about the appearance:

Angela Hill @AHillWWL

Sarah Palin is coming to Louisiana to campaign for Republican Bill Cassidy. Who does this help: Cassidy or Landrieu?

  • A July 4th Fact of Facts: America is Land of Immigrants
  • Poll: Trump strong on jobs, weak on tweets, viewed as reckless, thin-skinned, sexist
  • President Trump, It doesn't feel like Independence Day
  • YIPPIE! The naked truth about free speech, cherished especially on Independence Day

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.
