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

obama-carterIn his visit to Africa, President Obama once again showed his narcissism. He spent time focusing on the 2016 presidential race and criticizing Republican candidates Donald Trump and Mike Huckabee. He also used a speech to the African Union to claim that he could win a third term because “I’m a pretty good president.”

obama-whistleIn a recent Internet interview, President Obama made the ultimate shocking statement by using the “n” word. The President’s comment was not an inadvertent mistake or a careless slip of the tongue. It was designed to make a point that race relations still need to improve in our country.

chehardy-hangoutRepublicans have long criticized President Obama for using executive action to enact rules and regulations for an agenda that Congress has not authorized.  In effect he creates law where no authority exists for his actions, or he overreaches his authority.  Now Governor Jindal is doing the same thing by issuing an executive order to implement the basic intent of HB 707 even though the House Civil Law Committee earlier in the day effectively killed the bill for this legislative session.

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.
