Fox News, DC Insiders, GOP candidates fuel Trump train heading for White House
Written by

trump-engineWhen Donald Trump first burst on the political scene two months ago as a presidential candidate, the analysts, commentators and pollsters who populate cable news programs, the so called “experts,” claimed it was all a publicity stunt. Then, they said he would never release his financial statements. Then, they said his controversial comments about immigration, Senator John McCain and Fox News Host Megyn Kelly would doom his campaign. Now, they are saying his lead cannot continue for his support has a “ceiling” and his campaign is a flash in the pan. Unfortunately for the “experts,” they are completely wrong on every one of these issues. Trump is solidifying his lead and is not going away, even though the liberal media and the Republican establishment wishes that he would disappear. Trump is upsetting their plan for the GOP to nominate another moderate candidate, such as former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, and, once again, lose to the Democrats.

Governor Jay Dardenne is also running for the top seat and is in the low teens and a virtual tie with Angelle in most polls.

In the 2015 rankings by US News and World Report, LSU comes in at 149.

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.
