Louisiana has a reputation as a conservative, law and order, state, but that has been changing in recent years. After approval from the legislature and the voters last fall, unanimous jury verdicts will be required in felony convictions. This will make it much harder for prosecutors to convict criminals in our state.

Paul Manafort should remember March 11, 2019 and perhaps Donald Trump might too.

Today is the day that Paul Manafort was sentenced to a total of 7.5 years for crimes prosecuted by special counsel Robert Mueller. Perhaps conveniently arranged, Manafort has just been indicted by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance for "a yearlong residential mortgage fraud scheme through which Manafort and others falsified business records to illegally obtain millions of dollars."

President Donald Trump is enjoying a strong upswing over the past two months in the red-rock state of Louisiana.


In the recent Morning Consult poll released on Monday, Donald Trump now has an 18% net approval. In January, his net approval had dropped to 13% from his inauguration high of 31%. The uptick reflects a 5% increase from two months ago.

President Donald Trump is pro-crime.  I know he claims to be in favor of the rule of law. But, his actions overwhelmingly prove otherwise.

For weeks House Democrats hyped the scheduled public testimony of former Trump attorney Michael Cohen. They chose to hold the congressional hearing while the President was in Hanoi, Vietnam negotiating with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. Of course, the objective was to distract the media from the historic summit, minimizing any potential diplomatic achievements, while focusing on the salacious allegations of an embittered and disbarred attorney.

What was the very quotable Senator John Kennedy’s point?

Earlier this week, the Louisiana Republican US Senator made national news, once again. Louisiana’s junior Senate was questioned on CNN about a report claiming President Donald Trump acted vindictively against his “favorite” news media, CNN. The allegations are that President Trump pushed his staff to block the sale of CNN to AT&T. Reportedly, Trump’s disdain for CNN was the reason for Trump’s action to block the sale.

It should come as no surprise that the Democratic Party will not allow Fox News to host a presidential candidate debate for the upcoming 2020 election. According to Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez, “Recent reporting atThe New Yorker on the inappropriate relationship between President Trump, his administration and FOX News has led me to conclude that the network is not in a position to host a fair and neutral debate for our candidates. Therefore, FOX News will not serve as a media partner for the 2020 Democratic primary debates.”

lady justice 3According to several watchdog organizations, Louisiana has one of the worst judicial climates in the country.  The state has been given the dubious title of the nation’s judicial hellhole by several neutral watchdog groups. Campaign funds given to a judicial candidate are often cited as possibly influencing future judicial decisions. Some are advocating the appointment of judges in order to do away with the pressure on judicial candidates to raise campaign contributions. So is this the solution? Is appointing rather than electing judges the way to go in Louisiana?

boards

Today, Gov. John Bel Edwards announced his appointments and reappointments to several Louisiana boards and commissions including Board of Regents, Greater New Orleans Expressway Commission, Louisiana Workers Compensation Corporation. Ernest N. Morial-New Orleans Exhibition Hall Authority, Dentistry and more.

Gov. Edwards announced appointments to the following boards and commissions:

Greater New Orleans Expressway Commission 
The Greater New Orleans Expressway Commission is responsible for constructing, maintaining, repairing and operating the dual span bridge-Expressway and requisite approaches, and the Causeway Bridge across Lake Pontchartrain connecting Jefferson and St. Tammany Parishes. In addition, in Act 762 of 1986 the State has asked the Commission to police the Huey P. Long Bridge across the Mississippi River.

Lindsey Williams, of Metairie, was appointed to the Greater New Orleans Expressway Commission. Williams is an attorney in private practice and will serve as a representative of Jefferson Parish.

It seems to be the rage in Hollywood, celebrities raising gender fluid children. Several weeks ago, actress Kate Hudson announced that she would raise her 3-month-old daughter Rani with a “genderless approach.” This pledge was greeted with plenty of praise from her celebrity friends, but left many traditional Americans confused. What is wrong with treating girls and boys in accordance with their God-given differences? Unfortunately, in today’s society, emphasizing the differences between the sexes is considered an unpardonable sin.

court justice

Although a decision on the matter will apply to many fewer defendants across Louisiana now, a needed challenge to a badly flawed decision on jury sentencing points out in passing an unintended consequence of recent change to this policy.

Last year, voters amended the Constitution to sweet away the state’s requirement – shared now only by Oregon – that juries decide cases with only 10 of 12 votes (except, according to the criminal code, cases that could carry a capital sentence). However, the change to unanimity didn’t affect cases already in the pipeline.

Watching former Trump attorney Michael Cohen’s testimony before the House Oversight and Reform Committee, it was impossible to ignore the grandstanding by Democrats out for blood and Republicans just as determined to protect the damaged goods personified in Donald Trump.

But it was the brief appearance of 3rd District U.S. Rep. Clay Higgins that provided a brief moment of unintended comedy.

During his five minutes in attempting to defend Trump from Cohen’s bombshell charges, Higgins managed to allude to “the many arrests” he had made in his law enforcement career.
