CRIME SCENEThe White House, in advance of the full court press to gather public support for his gun control executive order has issued a "Fact Sheet" explaining how these new actions would "reduce violence and make our communities safer.

obama brother2President Barack Obama opened up the gun control debate for Election Year 2016 with an executive order intended to reduce gun violence in the United States.

forgotstonAnybody and everyone closely watching Louisiana politics over the past couple of decades learned of and followed CB Forgotston, who reportedly died from self-inflicted gun-shot wounds yesterday.

Edwards, a Democrat, defeated David Vitter in the hotly-spirited runoff in December 2015.

ourso treyThe Louisiana Governor's race could be considered a text-book case study to how a candidate could come out of nowhere and beat the most powerful politician in the state.  That is exactly what occurred when Jon Bel Edwards bested the rest of the pack and then defeated David Vitter to replace Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal. 

hecht 2While much of the attention by many in New Orleans has been focused upon pros and cons of Civil War monuments removals, crime in the street, water outages, bad streets, race and New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, there are other voices out there who are claiming there is something happenning in the city and the region that should be noted.

scholarshipsIt’s that time of year for college bowl games and NFL playoffs.  And when you look at the winners, it’s all about the coach.  Top college teams like Alabama and LSU don’t build winning programs by setting up boards and committees. The job of producing a winner is on the shoulders of the coach and no one else.  If he wins, he gets a big bonus.  If he loses, he gets fired.

Welcome to the Jindal budget disaster of 2015-2016.

Donald Trump, winner of Ringside Politics Award 2015

Written by

trump tieFor many years, we have bestowed a Ringside Politics Turkey of the Year Award to a worthy celebrity or politician. This designation is anything but flattering, so last year we decided to start a positive award category by recognizing an annual Champion of the Year. 

woody jenkinsDuring Louisiana's recent statewide elections, I was doing a little research on a Democratic candidate for State Senate. I saw that the Louisiana Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee gave the candidate $150,000. Wow! That was a lot of money in a state senate race. I decided to dig a little deeper. So I looked up the donor list of the DSCC. I was shocked to see the names of many big international corporations that gave the Democrats $10,000 or more each — names like Exxon, Dow Chemical, and Pfizer drug company!

abvIt is correct that Jon Bel Edwards campaign beat the David Vitter campaign last month. However, for one of the first times in Louisiana political history, secondary campaigns competed with other similar campaigns to get out the message, either for or against the party they opposed.

A New Year in Louisiana and New Orleans

Written by

jim brownDo you make New Year’s resolutions? I always do. A New Year always brings with it promise and uncertainty, but the coming year brings with it a greater foreboding than we have experienced in the past. I would rather be absorbed with the more mundane things in life. But that’s not going to happen in these especially turbulent times. However, I’m not about to give up hope.
