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

clapper insightOn November 8, Donald Trump won the presidency with a substantial victory over Hillary Clinton. He captured 30 states and 306 electoral votes, the most for a Republican presidential candidate since 1988. In the process, he garnered 62.8 million votes, more than any other Republican presidential candidate in history. Of course, Clinton received almost 3 million more votes than Trump, but the candidate who receives more than 270 electoral votes wins the presidency and that is what Democrats will not accept.

stronger greatToday we face our future whether we are ready or not, whether we want to or not. 

It's Trump vs. Clinton.

I prefer neither, but, given the choice, I can't go with Trump.  However, I respect the opinions of those who have decided to push the Trump button.

trump compressedNow, only four days left before the election that will change America, forever.

In a number of polls in battleground states and national surveys, Donald Trump has amazingly made the election competitive.  Only one week ago, a Washington Post-ABC news poll found Hillary Clinton up by low double digits.  Now, the margin has swung around rapidly to where Trump leads in the same poll.

wilson trump part1The last time Chris Wilson and I discussed elections during a Bayoubuzz video interview, was shortly after the Democratic convention.  At that time, the walls were caving in on the Republican Party and on Donald Trump.  Now, six days before the elections, Trump is suddenly on a major upswing, some Democratic-strong states' walls are collapsing and the news simply gets worst every day for Hillary Clinton as Wikileaks, the FBI Director James Comey email case reopened and Obamacare put a major laceration on the nation's healthcare.  Trump could hit the 270 electoral college votes.  What a turnaround!!

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.
