butina putin 1

Who is Maria Butina and why was she indicted by the Special Counsel, Robert Mueller? How was the NRA involved as cited in the indictment?  Does this indictment relate to the alleged Russian collusion claims being made against team Trump?

Yesterday, I discussed these and many other issues with Grant Stern, a mortage broker and a very popular investigative writer who has a significant following on social media. He also is Editor-at-Large for Occupy Democrats, We discussed a variety of issues in the near-one hour Facebook/Twitter/YouTube Live interview.

Wanna watch US Supreme Court on TV?

With one recent Supreme Court Justice confirmed and another just appointed by President Trump, the issue of televising hearings before the nation’s highest court will surely be discussed. The Supremes have stood steadfastly against letting the public watch the cases argued before them, even though the court’s decisions can often have major implications for every American. The Constitution guarantees that trials are public and open to everyone.  And what could be more public than televising a criminal trial for the whole world to see?

Several weeks ago, ABC made a major public spectacle of firing Roseanne Barr for posting an offensive tweet about former Obama White House Advisor Valerie Jarrett. Within hours of the tweet, Barr was removed from her successful show. Of course, on the program, Barr portrayed a Trump supporting middle class woman spouting traditional American values. Her show found a huge viewing audience because it was not the usual mix of a leftist agenda with politically correct dialogue. Even though she apologized, ABC had no qualms about removing Barr, but continuing with a show that did not feature its major star.

Today, Gov. John Bel Edwards announced that his request for a third extension of the federal temporary housing program for survivors of the August 2016 floods has been approved by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) through January 15, 2019. Gov. Edwards requested that homeowners be given additional time and the low rent for the Mobile Housing Units (MHUs) be retained as survivors rebuild their homes that were either severely damaged or destroyed by the floods. The incremental rent increases on the MHUs remains in place.  FEMA has confirmed this will be the final extension to the program.

Endangered species, who needs them? They’re lots of other animals. Threatened species are not endangered, yet, so what’s the fuss there? Both impede progress. Climate change, on the off chance it’s real, won’t wipe out entire populations on earth while we’re still alive, so don’t fret when carbon caps get lifted. The banks made honest mistakes in the past, which they’re unlikely to repeat, so everybody’s money is safe again, and deregulation is good there, too. The sick, about time, can stand on their own two feet instead of lounging about in government paid wheelchairs, obviating the need for universal health care. And, hats off to the  generous Iowa hog and soybean farmers who are supporting the economy by going bankrupt. Best news of all, however, the Russians mean us no harm. 

 

comey tweet 5Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey has finally been exposed. For years, his friends in the media have referred to him as a Republican. This has allowed them to legitimize their criticism of Donald Trump by claiming a Republican FBI Director was investigating him. Of course, in 2016, that narrative collapsed when Comey finally admitted in a congressional hearing that he was no longer a Republican.

Since then, Comey has made positive statements about President Barack Obama, exonerated Hillary Clinton despite evidence of criminal behavior and was ultimately fired by President Trump for his poor performance.

John Kennedy has become somewhat of a folk hero on cable TV since his moving from the Louisiana Treasurer’s office to the US Senate.  He’s somewhat of the go-to guy for quips and quotes on the burning issues of the day.

This morning, he appeared on CNN’s New Day. The issue? Of course, President Donald Trump and Russia’s President Vladimir Putin.

Since their joint appearance on Monday, there has been much speculation, outrage, counter-outrage by the media, the left and the right over whether Trump presented a strong image last week at the NATO conference and in Finland, at the summit.

coastToday, Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards announced $60 million in new coastal projects to be built and paid for with funds from the settlement of the Deepwater Horizon, BP Oil Spill.

by Stephen Waguespack, President and CEO of Louisiana Association of Business and Industry

Every now and then, it is important to take the time to reflect on those who deserve some recognition and appreciation.
 
I for one feel blessed that I have a loving family, supportive friends and am surrounded daily by hardworking and talented coworkers. I want each of them to know how grateful I am for all that they do.
 
The last several months, we at LABI have worked daily with an army of elected officials and other dedicated public servants to try and solve the state’s policy challenges affecting Louisiana’s business community. While we agree with some and disagree with others, I want to say thank you to all of them for their commitment to Louisiana and their willingness to offer themselves up for public service.

Benediction for America: Time for Trump to Go
Written by

Donald Trump thinks we’re all fools, based on his embrace of a long-standing enemy, Russia. Ignore all the people who were shot trying to climb the Berlin wall that Ronald Reagan demanded Russian leader Mikhail Gorbachev tear down. Forget the Hungarians who were mowed down when that country sought to throw off the yoke of the USSR. What better way to besmirch the memory of all the U.S. men and women who died in Vietnam, killed by Russian arms, than to embrace Russia? The list goes on and on, throughout the post-war era, consisting of continuous Russian affronts to decency and human rights.

jbe bottom 7In the same week that CNBC ranked Texas as the state with the best economy in the nation, Bankrate listed Louisiana as the 4th worst state in the nation to retire. Analyst Taylor Tepper cited the state’s “very high crime,” as one of the reasons for the poor ranking. This makes sense because retirees usually do not want to move to a state where they will be robbed or murdered.

port no 4Louisiana supported Donald Trump like no other state in the country. This is Trump Country. So is Iowa, Kansas, parts of Michigan, Pennsylvania and others. However, according to many experts, including Tulane's economist Peter Ricchuitti, Louisiana is being hit the hardest now than most states and has a significant amount to lose, should the tariffs keep coming.

Ricchutti discussed this issue during the fourth segment of our Live Stream interview recently.
