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.

sinkhole decDear Bayoubuzz Publisher,

I have followed your publication for many years. During the campaign for governor I kept reading with amusement the posts of Professor Sadow. In almost every instance he is an apologist for those in and out of government who are proponents of Tort Reform or are just plain anti trial lawyer.

jindal runOn the same day that Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal communications office announced that he will be traveling to Alexandria to highlight what his offfice calls the " economic development success of the region" and meet with local employees of Crest Industries, the Louisiana Democratic Party issued the following statement, that questions the veracity of Jindal's claim:

louisiana capital 3Incoming Gov. John Bel Edwards throughout his campaign tried to distance himself from his image as a wild-eyed liberal. Yet leopards don’t change their spots, as a recent comment of his validated.

cruzWhile it might not be a direct contradiction to what Ted Cruz has told America regarding his positions on Gay Marriage, the recent audio of Ted Cruz does question his conservative bonafides.

Just why is Donald Trump resonating so well in US political theater?

Perhaps, it is because the blue-collar men, guys who have nothing in common with The Donald at all, feel he is one of them.

dumFor decades, the Louisiana Legislature has been a puppet of the Governor, a mere extension of the power of the executive branch instead of an independent political body with separate powers. Governors from Huey Long to Bobby Jindal have called the shots regarding legislative initiatives and leadership.

Our new Governor, John Bel Edwards, is no exception and he has already indicated his choice for the next House Speaker, Walt Leger (D-New Orleans). The problem is that Leger, while a bright and respected legislator, is definitely to the ideological left of not only most House members, but also most of the voters of Louisiana.

It looks as though Bobby Jindal’s former commissioner of administration Kristy Nichols will finally have to comply with state regulations. Or maybe not.

The Louisiana Board of Ethics, in typical fashion first put the kibosh on any effort by Kristy Kreme to lobby state government on behalf of her new employer—and then promptly withdrew the opinion.
