I’m looking at Twitter this afternoon and my thoughts are literaly shaking. Did I really wake up from last night’s nightmare?
Which Louisiana US Senator Senator is more popular in terms of favorables and unfavorables?
Drum roll, please....
Today, I argued with a friend of mine on Facebook about Donald Trump’s Boy Scout speech yesterday.
My friend said Trump might be unconventional but that is why people voted for him. He also claimed the media is making too much out of it—denouncing them and claiming it’s just another time the media has gone into a frenzy.
What time is it?
It's Politics with a Punch time--which ain't just some little howdy-doody event And what a show we have for you Thursday evening July 27 at 8PM at the Eiffel Society, 2040 St. Charles Avenue, New Orleans. Hey, come join the peanut gallery!!
Add Wendell Pierce to the chorus of people in New Orleans lately who appear to be angry with New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, for one reason or another.
In a tweet today responding to a CNN article following Landrieu’s interview with the Axe Files’s David Axelrod, the actor Pierce said, “Shameless political panderer that he is, Landrieu pivots away from New Orleans to court the Trump supporters of Louisiana. Political science”
According to the CNN article, Landrieu said the following that might have invoked Pierce’s anger:
"President Trump has only been in office for six months. It's in everybody's best interest for him to succeed and for him to do well," he said. "Starting a presidential race for anybody at this time under any circumstances is ill-advised."
"I think there are people who think driving differences helps them. Those generally are people that believe in 50% plus one, might is right view of the world," Landrieu said. "I think President Trump is one of those people."
How much of a deep dive should a President of the United States make into the policies, the law and the intricacies of major legislation affecting one-sixth of the nation’s economy?
It appears, based upon comments by Louisiana US Senator and medical doctor Bill Cassidy, perhaps not much.
It’s been a long time since President John F. Kennedy faced Richard M. Nixon in the first televised Presidential debate. That was 1960. Television was still in its infancy with homes being filled with maybe one television, if that, and possibly three channels to watch, if that.
If Donald Trump Jr., the Trump campaign, Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner possibly violated federal campaign law, what about the democrats regarding the information it obtained from Ukraine and the now infamous Steele Dossier? Aren't those campaign violations too? And what about free speech? Shouldn't the defense of the first amendment prime any claim of wrongdoing?
Today, I was asked on Facebook, "one of my questions is how much was known to the Obama administration and what did they do, if anything?"
I responded with the below commentary. I am posting it here in its raw form, unedited. Do feel to respond below and I apologize for any spelling/grammatical issues that do exist as this was written as a Facebook reply with stream of consciousness to quickly summarize and to give an overview:
JMC Analytics and Polling has released a new poll in the Louisiana Treasurer's Race hours from the closing time of election qualifying.
The poll was commissioned by an organization named AccountableLouisiana.com. A search of that website reveals little or no information other than a "tips" link and "donate button". The website domain was initially purchased in April 2016 and updated April 2017. Whois shows no public information.
