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

The Louisiana legislative session is history. It ended Thursday night, at midnight and now the question is-- what happened?

Well, we raised taxes, again although some say, there was no need to do so.  The Republicans have taken credit for successfully plugging the tax dike.  Some say Governor Johnn Bel Edwards was the loser.  Others claim, no, it is the House of Representatives conservative republicans.  And still, others say it is the taxpayers who actually lost.

As anticipated, the Louisiana Republican Party leaders have taken credit for stopping the invading army of tax hogs descending upon the state.   After the prior special session, despite a GOP-Democratic-Edwards coalition, they pinned the tax tale increase solely on John Bel Edwards and his band of donkeys. Today, via email, the party said:

From the right, they say, the House must come down, the government is failing “we the people”.

They cry: "We need another American Revolution and the political messiah must come from the outside, not from within". 

“Let Trump be Trump”.

That was the campaign cry of one--Corey Lewandowski.  Trump’s family members prevailed forcing the once- combative campaign manager to be nicely police-escorted out of the Trump towers after getting axed.  The also once-loyal master, in the latest installment of Trump Campaign Apprentice TV show had finally spoken and Corey quickly became a rerun.

America is at a crossroads.  This is America’s last chance but it must be achieved by a leader and a message from outside of the system, not from within.

This is the message of Jeff Crouere’s first book, properly titled, America’s Last Chance, which has just been published and released, for sales.

What this presidential election season is proving to me is that we as a nation hate the other side, the other candidate, so much that many of us are willing to just fabricate or simply create false rationales for our opinions to protect our favorite politician.

No doubt, Donald Trump has had better weeks.
His poll numbers are in the tube, compared to only a few weeks ago.  Republicans are getting nervous.
So, I wanted to check what was being said on twitter.

Needless to say, there is much depending upon the passage of HB38 today in the House of Representatives at the Louisiana State Capitol and the full court press is on by all involved.

Judging from the flurry of tweets, Louisiana’s Future is on the line and advocates for and against the legislation are leading the cheers.

Congratulations to Attorney General Jeff Landry's office, for earning the "U.S. DHHS-Inspector General’s Award of Excellence"

On Sunday morning, the world discovered the horrors of the Orlando terror attack at the Pulse gay nightclub.
When America awoke to the news, the social media boards, particularly Twitter and Facebook, exploded.  Trump proponents blamed Obama and Clinton and the discussion turned to how President Obama would not use the word “Islamic terror” and would blame guns.
