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

lame-ducksBobby Jindal has been running for President since the day he was elected Governor of Louisiana. It has been a long process of national campaigning and neglecting his duties of Governor. He has traveled the country in a non-stop effort to get recognized by the elite network of GOP activists and donors. Unfortunately, Jindal has been going nowhere fast as he does not even register in many polls and many commentators forget to mention that he is even running for President.

Landrieu survives challenge
    Some politicos and political journalists are beginning to believe that the GOP feels they only way they can defeat incumbent Democratic U.S. Sen.  Mary Landrieu is to have her removed from the November 4 ballot.  That strategy did not work.

The Governor has previously been very open about his fondness for the show and the Robertson family. When Phil Robertson, the family patriarch, was criticized for his viewpoints on homosexuality, Jindal went out and defended him. Furthermore, Gov. Jindal gave the family the Governor’s Award for Entrepreneurial Excellence. The Robertsons were the first recipient of this award. The season premiere showed the awards ceremony.

robertson-philIt is refreshing to see a public figure with enough guts to take on the liberals in our society today.  Most celebrities who are criticized for making a politically incorrect statement will fold like a tent and immediately issue an apology. The aim is to rebuild their reputation with the media elite and get back in their good graces.

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.
