As predicted, a major drug bust takes place at the southern border and the Donald Trump relief force and the build-a wall-or-else-crowd goes into high gear.
Just read it on twitter.
From Bill O’Reilly to members of the Freedom Caucus to the MAGA HAT crusaders--the cry has been very succinct: If the smuggling of drugs that could kill 57 million people is not a national emergency, then what is?
It may take awhile longer, but Louisiana looks set to shape state powers to regulate abortion providers, in a good way.
Last week, the full U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit refused to hear a decision made by a panel from it last September. The case involved operating restrictions upon abortion mills placed by the state back in 2014, but stayed from implementation because of the court challenge. The three-judge panel had ruled the state could proceed with the changes, which would tighten up provision standards on par with other surgical procedures and have doctors involved obtain admitting privileges to a hospital within 30 miles.

It was back in 1966 that a young telephone installer-repairman realized that climbing telephone poles was not his cup of tea. The hot summers and cold winters perched atop some utility pole in rural Union Parish attempting to resolve repeated outages in the Truxno community held no real appeal for him.
How do you put a dollar value on the worth of a public official? How about this idea. Shouldn’t receiving any salary increase be based on results?
LSU football coach Ed Orgeron will pocket some three and a half million dollars this year, making him one of the highest-paid football coaches in the nation. He received such an enormous salary package based on results. It’s the old adage that you get what you pay for, and with Ed, LSU ended the football season winning10 games.
Should time and work be the only criteria in paying public employees? Why not pay the governor, the secretary of economic development, the superintendent of education, and a cross section of other public officials that directly affect our lives based on a scale of how well they perform and what results they achieve?
The New Orleans Saints have been in operation for 51 years and have only delivered one Super Bowl championship to their faithful fans. Nevertheless, the most loyal fans in the world still bleed black and gold and are passionate about supporting their team. Maybe it was because of the fact the team was announced on All-Saints Day in 1966 but supporting the team has become a religious experience.
For those keeping score, the American Foreign policy and intelligence Super Bowl reveals that the President's Intel Chiefs are not willing to be benched as to the way they see the world. However, the President hired them all and can fire them all without cause. And he can publicly insult their individual and collective intelligence as he has done to others in his administration who have disagreed with him.
Deciding to run for office Running for elective office is not for those operate life impulsively.
It is a process.
It’s slightly different to running for re-election or for that matter, deciding to use existing good name recognition to propel into another political contest.
It’s a major lifestyle decision.
President Donald Trump has announced the settlement of the longest government shutdown in American history.
Now, it is time to get serious.
Trump was blasted by his base for accepting a prior deal on the wall. Now, he’s being sliced and diced by the same folks
New Orleans Saints fans and practically the whole state of Louisiana are up in arms. And for good reason. It’s become the most talked about call in the history of NFL football. Simply put-the Saints got robbed.
To many of the radical leftists who inhabit the interconnected worlds of the media, Hollywood and the Democratic Party, the red hat with the words “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) has become the new similar of racism. According to left wing activist and actress Alyssa Milano, wearing the MAGA hat is akin to wearing a “white hood.”
Thus, supporting Donald Trump is the same thing as belonging to a terrorist group like the KKK. Never mind that the MAGA slogan was also used by former Presidents Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton, it is now incredibly racist because it was resurrected by Donald Trump. To the left, he is the epitome of evil.
Today, Gov. Edwards announced Chip Kline as the new executive assistant for coastal activities and board chair of the Coastal Restoration and Protection Authority (CPRA).
“We have reached a critical moment to address coastal restoration and hurricane protection in our state in a way in which we have never done before,” said Edwards. “In order to take full advantage of this opportunity, the CPRA must have a leader who recognizes the severity of the crisis we face, has a deep knowledge and understanding of the many complex issues that must be worked daily, and has a vision for our state. For the last 10 years, Chip has worked tirelessly on behalf of our working coast, and I have full confidence he is committed to accomplishing our goals vital for us to have a coast that we can continue to be proud of.”
It is now official; Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards is running for re-election. He released a video yesterday confirming the worst kept secret in Louisiana. It has been clear from the beginning of his first term that Edwards was running for re-election.
In his video, Edwards outlined his so-called accomplishments, but neglected to remind voters that he is a Democrat. Ironically, he is trying to have it both ways, pursuing liberal policies while masquerading as a conservative.
Nothing has changed, so nothing should change, despite the histrionics of the Gov. John Bel Edwards Administration.
What’s the difference between politics of today compared to politics of the past?
Actually, politics, as everything else today, moves in warp speed, where yesterday seems like forever and what existed the day before has no relationship to tomorrow.
Which is why I asked three of the best know political minds in the region to discuss the evolution and changes in the political landscape.
The Louisiana governor race has begun, kinda.
Today, on the other side, enters one Democrat John Bel Edwards, the current occupant of the governor's mansion who first won the seat in 2015.
Here is the campaign information which Bayoubuzz received this morning via email.
There are three ways to lose a game. First, you get beat by a better team. You can understand that and you go back to the drawing board to get better. Second, you can lose a game with poor execution or an ill-timed mistake. But stuff happens and you can understand that. Third and the worst of all is when you do nothing wrong, your execution is good enough to win but you get it taken away from you. And that’s the one you can’t understand nor forgive. And that’s what happened to the Saints Sunday in the Superdome.
