Today, President Donald Trump fired back against CNN, a left-wing network masquerading as the home of “excellence in journalism.” His attorneys sent a four-page letter to the network pledging to sue for a “substantial payment of damages” for their history of biased coverage.

The primary is over and Louisiana voters will now choose between Gov. John Bel Edwards and businessman Eddie Rispone.

If you are like me, you are sick and tired of all the mudslinging that took place.  Being factually correct and critical of a person’s record is fair game. But I was shocked at the mean-spirited attacks on Gov. Edwards.  But this is where our politics has gone. I call it Washington style politics. Ugly attacks on the opponent. Ignore the facts. And just say whatever comes to mind.  One example is President Trump’s assertion that Gov. Edwards if reelected would take away our guns. That is so false. Gov. Edwards has repeatedly stated that he is pro second amendment.  But lies don’t matter. Lies excite certain voters so lying is acceptable.

“Mr. President, with you all roads lead to Fordham.”  Before Donald Trump got his academic bona fides at Penn, with its acclaimed Wharton school, he spent two years at Fordham University in the Bronx. Close to his home, and run by the Jesuits, it is a fine school, by all reasonable standards, even if it isn’t Ivy League. In fact, the only reason it deserves mention, since the University keeps its Trump affiliation mostly to itself, is a partial responsibility for gaps in the president’s knowledge of history,

election surprise 5

As Gomer Pile insightfully said:  Surprise, Surprise, Surprise. There were a number of them on election night in the Bayou State. Governor John Bel Edwards’ quest for a first primary victory fell flat as several factors in the final days of the campaign caused his poll numbers to plummet.  Now voters can look forward to a nasty runoff, with the airwaves filled with a boatload of negative TV and radio spots.

My my!  How things have changed.

It goes without saying that Eddie Rispone is in a surprise runoff with incumbent Democrat, John Bel Edwards for Louisiana Governor. Somehow, a very rich, but politically unknown, Rispone morphed into Donald Trump.  He, wore Trump  around his neck. He  covered himself with Trump cologne and met him at the alter last week along with fellow gubernatorial candidate and ardent Trump name-dropper, Congressman Ralph Abraham.

If Teddy Bridgewater has achieved anything this season, he has added another feather in Coach Sean Payton’s genius bonnet. If Payton had not pushed the re-signing of the free agent quarterback after last season, the Saints might not be at 5-1 today and a favorite to make the Super Bowl. Of course, with Pope Francis inadvertently expressing his blessing on the Saints this week, Who Dat Nation is trying to enlist the Pontiff to use his spiritual influence to speed up Drew Brees’ recovery and send Bridgewater back to the bench.

The results of the primary election on October 12 showed that Louisiana voters were rather interested in this campaign and the candidates. Either they realize that Louisiana is not doing well economically and want change, or they want four more years of John Bel Edwards as Governor. Regardless, 200,000 more voters participated in this election than in the 2015 election. It is a good sign that turnout increased despite a major LSU vs. Florida football game scheduled for Election Day.

Last night, President Trump entertained 20,000 enthusiastic supporters in Minneapolis, Minnesota at the Target Center. Another 20,000 or more supporters were unable to get into the arena. The event was pure Trump as he excoriated Joe Biden and his son Hunter as well as the impeachment inquiry which is the latest Deep State and Democratic Party scheme to overthrow the 2016 election results.

Bernie Sanders attempt to beat the clock hit midnight when the indefatigable campaigner suffered a heart attack. He’s vowed to trudge on, but the handwriting is on the wall. The last ailing man elected president was FDR, and there has yet to be anyone like him on the American stage.

With the Louisiana statewide election only a few days away, and with many voters already making their way to the polls, it would seem to be a good time for me to gaze into my crystal ball and make a prediction of just who will be successful after all the vote are tallied.  As many of you regular reader well know, I generally am right on the money. (yeah, right!)

The groundswell of Republican support for President Donald Trump is simply amazing. It seems to me that not only would Trump survive culpability if he shot someone on Fifth Avenue, but his loyalists “see-no-evil-anywhere” would insulate him even if he downed someone on Broadway, too.

Some call the passion and never-dying support for Trump by his ardents as a cult. Others simply point to his ability to feed the red meat needed to satisfy the angry right wing who has roamed the political wilderness, seemingly forever, without a leader. But, he’s now here and Trump is to be protected at all costs.  In fact, religious activist Ralph Reed claims that evangelicals have a moral duty to support Donald Trump.  Yep. A Moral duty.

This Saturday is a big day for Louisiana.  Voters will choose the person to serve as our state’s governor for the next four years.  My vote goes to Gov. John Bel Edwards.

When Gov. Edwards assumed office nearly four years ago, he inherited a fiscal nightmare that was worse than anyone realized.  It was a $2 billion deficit that the state had to remedy.
