So, here we are.

Four years ago, the MAGA train powered across the nation. Farmer, coalminers, former-Obama backers jumped on at every stop. The battle cry, shrieking through Donald Trump's "Maga Phone" demanded major disruptions and destruction of our nation's institutions, far and wide.

Instead of backing our traditional allies in Europe who, for seventy-years, we courted as indispensable partners, the candidate Trump gave notice they were no longer needed. Our new best buddy would be Putin' and Russia.  Candidate Trump told us that our leading the world through cooperation in the sciences, trade, human rights were not going to be his goal.  He warned us that he, if President, would leave those tracks of which the world valued our incredible contributions.  

 
Despite almost unanimous scientific evidence of global warming, he promised to turn on the spigot for old coal and dirty energy sources. Instead of working with the strengths of our past, the world became all about us—America First. Always.

His loyalists and later his voters saw all of this as a way to tell the world they have had enough!! It was time to disrupt the status quo.

The Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company is headquartered in Akron, Ohio, where it was founded in 1898. Since that time, it has grown to be a massive corporation with operations all over the world. Today, it is the third largest tire company in the world with 63,000 employees. In addition, Americans have become accustomed to seeing one of the nine Goodyear Blimps at major sporting events across the country.

Say what?  I’m sure I’m not hearing this right.  After spending millions of dollars in lobbying for so called tort reform, and promising that limiting policyholders’ legal rights will cause a major reduction in the cost of automobile insurance, the industry seems to be taking an “about-face”.  Here’s what the Morning Advocate reported this week:

“Louisiana drivers will pay the highest prices for auto insurance in the nation next year despite having passed a sweeping tort reform law that was sold as a way to dramatically lower premiums by as much as 25%, an insurance industry executive, who was one of the primary forces behind the legislation, told a panel of primarily Republican businessmen and legislators, who helped pass the new law.”

 

media5 4Former Vice President Joe Biden has enjoyed incredibly favorable coverage from the mainstream media in the 2020 presidential race. His baggage, such as a history of plagiarism, racist comments, and shady dealings for his son Hunter, has been completely ignored by the media.

While the media are working overtime to demonize President Donald Trump, Biden has been able to stay in his basement for months conducting very few interviews. In his recent press appearances, Biden has exited without taking questions from the media. His staffers told the media to leave and they meekly complied with these demands without shouting any questions.

It's official!! The US presidential race pitts the challengers Joe Biden and Kamala Harris vs. incumbent Donald Trump and Mike Pence.

Today, only days leading up to the Democratic convention, Joe Biden announced his running mate.

Shortly after the announcement,  we wanted to see what the talking heads were saying about the match up. Below is a transcript of a portion of the Daily Meet the Press with Chuck Todd as host. Following that is Dana Perino and Chris Wallace from Fox News

It might be time for patriotic Americans to discover a new favorite sport, professional hockey. Unlike other professional athletes, hockey players have refused to show disrespect toward the National Anthem.

At exhibition games this week, all players with the New York Rangers, New York Islanders, Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers stood for the National Anthem.

Likewise, for last night’s start of the season, all the players with the Dallas Stars and the Nashville Predators stood for the National Anthem.

 Late on a hot July night in a neighborhood off Downman Road in New Orleans, a man was shot in the head. After being taken to the hospital, he succumbed to his injuries. It was another grisly statistic in a city known for its high rate of violence.

Sadly, the shooting was barely mentioned in local media, just another murder victim in a violent city. As usual, the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) provided few details. These regular incidents of crime spark little outrage from the public numbed by the never-ending violence.

What do you think about President Donald Trump's trial balloon he launched today?  According to the president, we can't trust the future election results because of mail-in voting. So, the Potus tweeted his frustration which in essence asked , "how about if we delay this November vote, guys?".

Maybe he has a point. While there absolutely is no evidence of the type of massive "mail-in" voting fraud that could turn the November results, admittedly, it is possible, and we have seen isolated cases.

How Louisiana can cash in on ethical judges

Written by

judge money 7Is Louisiana a judicial hellhole where decisions by state judges are influenced by campaign contributions?  Apparently, the Louisiana legislature and business lobbying groups think so. In the recent legislative session, laws were passed taking away the authority of state judges to make decisions involving small claims above $10,000.  Evidently elected judges often do not make fair decisions.  Or at least that what insurance companies and other business groups want you to believe.

In the past two months, hundreds of corporations, all the professional sports franchises and political leaders of both parties have expressed support for the group Black Lives Matter (BLM). Any expression of “All Lives Matter” has been deemed to be racist. For example, a Sacramento Kings broadcaster lost his job for tweeting “All Lives Matter.” In New Orleans, a Mardi Gras krewe captain faced withering criticism and the defection of members and bands for a similar message. A local teacher was fired because her husband painted “We All Matter” and other slogans on his fence. It seems clear that in the politically correct climate today, everyone must express support for BLM or face withering backlash.

Turning a page on a pandemic; It's reading time

Written by

brown book sign

If you’re a book publisher like me, and want to sell a lot of books, there’s no better time than during a pandemic. Book sales have been high for months, particularly the big box stores like Walmart, Target, Costco, as well as bookstores nationwide. Some of the titles published by The Lisburn Press have sales that have tripled in recent months.  If you’re stuck inside, what better way to pass time by reading a book.

AWOL TRUMP 3
It's now official. Down is up, and day is night. And Donald Trump is the man who saved America from health and economic Armageddon.

That's the White House narrative. If you were to believe the quick-talking, take-no-prisoners Presidential Counselor, Kellyanne Conway, her boss is the best thing to happen to treat infections since penicillin.

On Wednesday, Conway told a gaggle of reporters that the governors opened up too quickly. Her finger-pointing and boss-protection is no surprise, especially now. After a long hiatus during which the White House put fixing the virus on cruise control, with poll numbers heading due south, the President decided to become relevant once again.
