The New Orleans Mayor’s race was boring. The main excitement was the sideshow between businessman Sidney Torres and Desiree Charbonnet. Torres wasn’t even a candidate. Since LaToya has a strong lead in the runoffs that will occur November 18, her opponent needs to go negative and she will do so.

Those were just some of the comments from political analyst and conservative talk radio host Jeff Crouere in a Facebook Live discussion Thursday night, only days after the general election.

Last week, President Donald Trump took unilateral action via an executive order to stop paying insurance companies amounts as designated under the Affordable Care Act, to reimburse insurers for their payments to insureds under the Affordable Care Act.  The President claims the payments to the insurance companies are a bailout. After terminating the payments, Trump said that  "Obamacare is dead". The President and the Republican-led Congress were unsuccessful in repealing and replacing Obamacare which lack of success precipitated Trump's move last week.

Louisiana throws elections but nobody comes
Written by

It’s like they threw a party but nobody came. That’s how election officials must have felt when they counted the ballots for last week’s statewide election. The turnout was a paltry 13.5%. Now remember that some 50% of adults over eighteen who could register have not done so. That means the less than 7% of Louisianans over eighteen bothered to show up at the polls to vote.

Ask any politico: Elections are a game of numbers. It is a question of where a candidate will place assets to achieve the winning numbers.

There was one indisputable fact during the New Olreans Mayor’s race—turnout was very poor. There seems to be one logical conclusion for the runoff. The Mayor’s race and the New Orleans elections, in general, are bound to get negative and dirty.

While the Louisiana Treasurer’s race did not light up the voter’s interest, yielding a roughly 13.5 percent turnout, there is a very interesting story to be told from one of the individuals involved in the election process.

John Couvillon, polled for Angele Davis’s unsuccessful run.  She was one of three Republican candidate who was trying to garner her share of the 65 to 70 percent of the vote that would be likely be split up between the three conservative candidates which included John Schroder and Neil Riser.

A go fund me campaign has been established for Tulane Professor Mia Bagneris, who was struck by a drunk driver Saturday night and is now battling severe injuries.

While the Louisiana Democratic Party did not formally support the only candidate for Treasurer, Derrick Edwards, during the general election and while there are still questions as to whether it will hold off its support for the leading candidate who received the most votes on Saturday, the Republican Party of Louisiana has not dither one bit.  It announced its official endorsement of John Schroder for Louisiana State Treasurer who will be facing Edwards on November 18.. 

don kimmel trump jrTime magazine ran a front-page photo of a saint-like Jared Kushner the week of June 1, 2017, identifying him as “The Good Son.”  When it published a cover with Donald Trump Jr., the identifier was “Caught Red Handed,” with a dark, moody, picture that resembled a mobster’s mug shot. The disparate treatment was extreme, though Kushner, so far, is unlikely to bring the Administration down.

How did Representative John Schroder beat his Republican opponents in the Louisiana Treasurer’s Race, only to come in second against Democrat Derrick Edwards, who some believe has no chance to beat his GOP foe?

Runoff for State Treasurer
    As expected, the lone Democrat in the race for State Treasurer – Derrick Edwards – finished first in the field of six candidates.  He garnered 31% of the vote in the primary on Saturday.

oswaldAfter almost 54 years, the controversy about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy still rages today. 

The question at the center of the debate is the roll of Lee Harvey Oswald. Was he the diabolical perpetrator of the crime or an unwitting patsy set up to take the blame for the murder of the century by powerful forces either within the U.S. government, the Mafia or foreign entities?
