There are 1,209 mosques all over the United States of America, in almost every state and every major metropolitan area. Most of the Muslims who worship at these mosques are law abiding Americans who do not wish harm on any innocent people.
Unfortunately, studies show that 15 percent of Muslims adhere to a radical branch of Islam that calls for violent jihad and the death of the United States of America. Because of the past few decades of violence from radical Islamists against the United States and other western nations, it is not surprising that Americans are opposed to the construction of any new mosques. For radical Muslims, mosques are used not just for prayer, but for planning terrorist attacks.
Today, Governor Bobby Jindal and Steve Moret made a blockbuster of an announcement. They joined Cheniere Energy Chairman and CEO Charif Souki to announce that one of the first natural gas liquefaction facilities in North America will be constructed at Cheniere’s Sabine Pass terminal in Cameron Parish. Cheniere will invest $6 billion to expand its existing facility, which will be one of the largest capital investments in Louisiana history.
Cheniere Energy Inc. (NYSE Amex Equities: LNG) is a Houston-based energy company primarily engaged in LNG-related businesses.
It feels so good to be back in my beautiful adopted city of New Orleans. I still remember when I was able to spend the summers at the beautiful island of Ibiza, Spain and miss a few parties. Not anymore. There are more than I could attend. I just did my calendar for the month of August and there are days that I‘m going to need a clone. Wishful thinking but I am sorry not to have one yet.
Tomorrow, Mayor Mitch Landrieu, in partnership with the White House Business Council, Office of Public Engagement, and Domestic Policy Council will host an Urban Entrepreneurship Forum at Xavier University. The Forum will be held from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. in the Xavier University Center.
Louisiana Rehab Services
The Louisiana Rehabilitation Council (LRC) and the Statewide Independent Living Council (SILC) will hold a two-day meeting focusing on Louisiana Rehabilitation Services (LRS) on Thursday, July 21, from 12:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Friday, July 22, from 8:30 a.m. - noon.
The joint meeting, which is free and open to the public, will be held in the Shell Room of the Louisiana Resource Center for Educators, 5550 Florida Blvd., Baton Rouge.
The councils will discuss suggestions and ways to improve consumer engagement, ensure the services provided by LRS meet the needs of Louisiana’s citizens with disabilities and hear success stories. The 25-member LRC and the 21-member SILC, appointed by the Governor, represent a cross section of stakeholders who meet quarterly to provide advice and guidance to LRS leadership.
Mitch Landrieu and Baptist Convention
Today, Mayor Mitch Landrieu welcomed the 138th Annual Session of the Louisiana Missionary Baptist State Convention, which convened in New Orleans on Sunday, July 17, and will end on Friday, July 22, at the Roosevelt Waldorf Astoria Hotel, located at 123 Baronne Street. This is the first time the group has assembled in New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina.
Gov. Bobby Jindal’s roundabout plan to squeeze more efficiency out of Louisiana’s bloated, inefficient bureaucracy continues to succeed at great cost savings to taxpayers, and may pick up even more momentum at the beginning of next year after time out for fall elections.
Yes, three large bogeys for Democrats statewide to concern themselves with.
First, of course, is the seemingly inevitable reelection of Bobby Jindal. He'll be steamrolling to a 50+1 victory on October 22nd (that'd be two straight), while trying to find some way to spend all of that state campaign money he's raised. It'll probably be around $10-12m when he reports on July 25th, and no matter how many TV buys he makes, he'll be hard pressed to find places to put all of that cash for his own race against... nobody.
Right now, the “Louisiana Buzz” is none other than Edwin Edwards.
Edwards, who served four terms as Louisiana Governor and then ten years in prison, is now making the book tour rounds and is indeed a “hot” item—since he is out of jail and is a free man.
The below is a commentary by Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal which he sent out on his campaign email.
It appears that Americans are not as sophisticated as the Obama Administration had hoped. Thank goodness.
Despite the President and his Treasury Secretary constantly threatening us with the end of the world if we don't all agree that more debt is crucial to American success….Americans are still against putting the country more in debt. I guess the American people are just hardheaded.
In Washington they are making this into a very complicated debate. It's really not. Our unprecedented 14 Trillion dollar debt is endangering not only our future, but also our present. Everyone talks about how damaging this debt will be to future generations, and that is true. But it is also damaging our country right this minute.
