Louisiana Legislature Session: Christopher Tidmore LIVE

troy henryThe dirty attack ads and websites that define most political races are off and running in the race for New Orleans Mayor.  In an age of SuperPacs with unknown donors, we're now seeing cowardly anti-candidate sites showing up in political cyberspace without any identifiers as to who funded, built, created or responsible for the domain and sites itself.

That station, WGNO, an ABC affiliate, is among other statons that have been purchased by the conservative and pro-Donald Trump leaning network of TV stations, Sinclair.

Landrieu monument tear downMr. Mayors and Governors, "Tear down those confederate monuments" Hearkening back to Ronald Reagan's epic urging of Mr. Gorbechev, in essence, that has been the cry by none other than the Mayor of New Orleans, Mitch Landrieu

 

 

  Landrieu has received a tremendous amount of national exposure since taking a controversial public stand over the past couple of years. While his stock has gone up in the minds of the national media (Landrieu confederate monument hailed), back home, former supporters and certainly his detractors, are not pleased, to say the least.   Landrieu has used the issue along with his presidency of the powerful US Conference of Mayors and other government officials to try to push his fellow mayors to follow his footsteps.   One of the leading advocates to maintain the confederate monuments in New Orleans and elsewhere has been long-time columnist for Bayoubuzz and WGSO radio talk show host, Jeff Crouere, who has written columns about the issue, discussed it often on his conservative talk show and has played a instumental role in trying to stop the city from removing those monuments.   On the other side of the debate, Landrieu has been congratulated by national media for his efforts, which has fed into the prospects of his running for President, despite the increased unpopularity and anger, locally, primarily by those who oppose the monument removals Also, as fate would have it, the intense hostility has increased due to the pumping system failures caused by unexpected New Orleans flooding primarily due to administration neglect. The flooding problem has become heightened due to perceived dishonesty by various officials and the recent hurricane threats.elow are some of the articles and columns published by this website that have addressed the efforts by Mayor Landrieu, Crouere's responses and Landrieu's popularity increase nationally, yet, decrease locally, among those upset about the confederate monument issue and the unfortunate pumping problem: Here is a list of articles about Mitch Landrieu, about confederate monuments and recent New Orleans news

compassIn the chaotic days after Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast, members of the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) were ordered to confiscate legally owned firearms. Not only was it an illegal breach of the Second Amendment rights of New Orleans citizens, but it also deprived vulnerable hurricane victims the best means of protecting themselves. 

Labor Day has come and gone which means other than escaping from Category 5 hurricanes, what else is there to discuss than New Orleans elections?
