Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal has been quite busy this week.
As if Louisiana needs any more financial wallops that could hurt its ability to fund governmental projects or that could hamper its economic growth. However, in a budgetary move that could hurt oil and gas industry and the State of Louisiana (which fought hard for revenue sharing of energy revenue) the Obama administration is favoring legislation that would drain Louisiana and three other Gulf states for redirect future oil and natural-gas drilling revenues.
The shift would boost "clean energy" industry efforts and hurt the oil and gas industry.

“I am truly, deeply concerned!”
Before the situation becomes even more toxic, it would be wise for Americans to appreciate Russian concerns and understand their historical perspective. Something this White House seems incapable of doing.
Who can blame Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg for falling asleep during President Obama’s 70 minute snoozer of a State of the Union speech?
Surely millions of Americans either fell asleep or turned off the President as his gave his usual speech, filled with a laundry list of liberal initiatives. In his speech, Obama did not acknowledge there was a Republican Senate and failed to recognize the stunning defeat his party suffered last November.
It is the Christmas holiday season throughout the world particularly in Washington DC where the political temperatures are always red-hot with anger and with communications between the two major parties, the Republicans and Democrats, always ice-cold.
The Jindal administration received Christmas tidings today from, well, perhaps, an unlikely source.
The Obama administration has approved the controversial Jindal public-private partnership deal.
Bernie Pinsonat and SMOR (Southern Media Opinion and Research released its latest poll about Louisiana and the findings are quite instructive:
President Barack Obama has a 81% negative job record among white Louisiana voters which numbers are consistent with the poor Democratic election results in the state since his taking office.

There is a war-a-coming for the hearts and minds of America and it is being played out on the airwaves and in the halls of the state and US Capitols.
The last race in the country for the U.S. Senate is over. On Saturday, Louisiana voters elected Congressman Bill Cassidy to serve as their next U.S. Senator. It is unusual for an incumbent senator to be defeated for re-election in Louisiana but this election was unusual from the beginning.
