We're hours away from qualification closing time and unless there are any surprises at this point, it appears these will be the candidates for the statewide offices. John Bel Edwards, the incumbent is facing two Republicans Congressman Ralph Abraham and businessman Eddie Rispone. They of course are the top tier with money, name recognition and background support. Other candidates in the mix are a democrat, an Independent and two other republicans.

After the tragedies in El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH it is especially unfortunate that the new movie The Hunt is scheduled for release in September. This sick and twisted movie depicts a group of elite liberals hunting down and killing 12 “deplorables” as a big game contest.

Qualifications have ended and it’s now a sprint to election day.  So what top issues should the candidates for governor and the legislature talk about in the coming weeks?  There is an abyss of a state with massive fiscal problems, an educational system that is dysfunctional, a healthcare system that needs a major overhauling, a highway system that has been neglected for years…get the picture?

Mike Yenni, the beleagured but successful President of Jefferson Parish has made his future decision. He will not run for re-election.

Yenni, the former Mayor of the City of Kenner, was voted parish president in 2015. Shortly afterwards, he became embroiled in a personal controversy.  The two candidates who seek to replace him are Councilwoman Cynthia Lee Sheng and former Jefferson Parish President John Young.  Here is the just-released press statement from his media advisor Greg Buisson:

Last week, a reporter for a local television station called, asking my reaction to the Saints’ $100 million, five-year extension for WR Michael Thomas. Of course, he didn’t get me the first time he called -  I was on the golf course and the phone was muffled -  so he left a message. That gave me some time to think about it, so after I finished playing I went home to prepare before I called him back.

How else can one explain it?

Our President Trump is more Vladimir Putin than he is our national intel. He's being called "Putin’s Puppet" and our Majority Leader, called McConnell, "Moscow Mitch".

Our nation’s intelligence, not only those experts appointed by President Barack Obama but those working on Donald Trump’s coin have warned us that the Russians interfered, are interfering and will do so come November 2020.

In the past few weeks, President Donald Trump has enjoyed an incredible stretch of good news. In fact, it has been his best stretch of good news since he entered the presidential race in 2015.

The highlight was former Special Counsel’s Robert Mueller embarrassing performance during two congressional hearings. He spent six hours bumbling and fumbling through incomplete answers. He seemed unable to hear or understand many of the questions. Overall, it was a shocking display of ignorance. Not only was Mueller unaware of Fusion GPS, but he also seemed to be clueless about the type of partisan Democrats he hired for the investigation. The Republican congressmen who questioned Mueller exposed him as a figurehead who was not in charge of the two-year $40 million investigation.

How do you put a dollar value on the worth of a public official?  Attorneys working full time for the LSU Health Sciences Center are asking to be paid more than $400,000 a year. So how do you justify such large increases? How about this idea? Shouldn’t receiving such large salaries be based on results?

LSU football coach Ed Orgeron will pocket some four 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 Orgeron, LSU ended the season with a top ten ranking.

crooked caucus 2

Once again, the House Democrats are at odds with the solid recommendations of our top military leaders. After prodding from House Armed Services Chairman Adam Smith (D-WA), the House passed the National Defense Authority Act (NDAA) 220-197 on July 12 without the support of any Republican members and with eight Democrat members voting against the bill.

After roughly 18 years of playing in some of the finest venues in the city, Politics with a Punch is taking it to the burbs and going Italian.   

“Punch”, as we love to call our political comedy show where just about everything goes, is leaving the Eiffel Society in New Orleans and taking its troupe of the top local newsmakers, celebrities,  media stars, comedians and politicians (no, the latter two are not necessarily synonymous.

Our new home is Andrea's in Metairie, and our next show is this Thursday August 1. Doors open at 6 pm, show begins at 8pm..

Louisiana has the "hots" for Tobasco Sauce

Grandparents visiting day took me to Portland, Maine this past weekend to spend time with my two oldest grandsons.  The highlight of the trip was of course hanging out with the boys and attending their various camp activities. But second on my list was to partake and enjoy Maine seafood, particularly the bountiful supply of lobster.  Now coming from the Bayou State with the best seafood in the nation, my standards are high. And with all due respect to the fine folks in Maine, I was disappointed.

In the coming weeks, will Sen. Bill Cassidy protect Louisiana residents from unnecessarily high healthcare costs?

  
It was not long ago that the Institute of Medicine named six Louisiana cities on its Top 10 list for most expensive places to buy healthcare.

  
Not only are Pelican State families struggling to pay for their health needs, but they are also not receiving the quality of care they deserve. According to a recent Wallethub study, Louisiana has the nation’s worst health maintenance as measured by cost, accessibility, and outcome.
