turk schiffy2

Since the beginning of the Ringside Politics TV and radio shows, we have enjoyed an annual Thanksgiving tradition of awarding our “Turkey of the Year” to recognize individuals who distinguished themselves in a particularly foolish way. It seems appropriate since turkeys are commonly regarded as one of the most dim-witted animals on the planet.

impeach cocktail

The goal of the House Democratic Party leadership is to use the impeachment inquiry to destroy President Donald Trump. They hope to impeach him, followed by conviction and removal from the U.S. Senate. Otherwise, they believe he will be so politically damaged that he will resign before the next election. Ironically, the exact opposite political result is occurring.

This year, it was a perfect opportunity for Louisiana Republicans to defeat a vulnerable Democratic Governor, the only one in the Deep South. Unfortunately, once again, the GOP lost a race it surely should have won.

It must be nice to be John Bel Edwards. On Saturday, he was re-elected to a second term with 51% of the vote even though Louisiana is a conservative “red” state. Other than Edwards, all statewide elected officials in Louisiana are Republicans. In 2016, Louisiana voters supported Donald Trump in the presidential election by a 58-38% margin over the Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton.

A Louisiana Governor's race post-mortem

Written by

 

jbe win

The Louisiana elections are now history. Governor John Bel Edwards bested businessman Eddie Rispone and indirectly President Donald Trump who campaigned heavily for the Republican candidate.

The day after the election political analyst and pollster John Couvillon of JMC Analytics and Polling published the following:

As both the decade and the 2019 election cycle comes to a close, JMC would like to analyze the results through the prism of the December 2002 runoff that saw Democratic Senator Mary Landrieu re-elected, as there are similarities between that race and Governor John Bel Edwards’ successful re-election race (that comparison was also made in this prior article).

Does a target of an investigation have the right to smear a witness who might or who did testify against him, and then claim he has free speech right to so engage?  Does he have the right to threaten removal from employment or position to limit any future witness from providing testimony when subpoenaed by Congress?

Trump tweeted this weekend slamming Jennifer Williams,  calling her a Never Trumper.   Williams testifies today. So the most powerful man in the world claims he has the right to tweet and disparage to tens of millions of people, intimidating that or any future witness who is compelled to testify against him?   He is asserting that anybody who agrees to a subpoena should now be labelled “Never Trumpers” without providing one iota bit of evidence.

punch holiday 2019 2

It's time to talk Turkey.  

With Thanksgiving now roughly ten days away, it is almost winter holiday-time when we spend quality moments with our friends, relatives and loved-ones.  And to prepare everyone with the right spirit, on Thursday November 21, we're serving up some of the most recognized political-turkey-talk with punch.

hill stone 5

Today, Roger Stone, a political operative who had worked with Presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump, was convicted on seven counts ranging from lying to Congress to witness tampering. His sentencing will take place on February 6, 2020. Stone could face up to 50 years in prison.

Prosecutors argued that Stone lied about his efforts to gather information for the Trump campaign from WikiLeaks about the hacking of Democratic National Committee computers.

facts dont matter 6

I am convinced. It is a fact. For those who I call ardent pro-Trumpers, the national GOP and the Republican Congress, facts don't matter in the Donald Trump impeachment probe.  It is all about politics.

No matter what the House of Representatives do, no matter what evidence has been or will be uncovered, the probe is not about facts. It is about emotions and partisanship.

The inquiry is not for truth. Truth is irrelevant. 

This does not mean that I believe that the Democrats have proven their case. However, I do believe they could and would if Donald Trump allowed the witnesses to testify and the documents to be released.

But, that won't happen. Regardless how we have heard the Fox News bunch call for transparency for the FISA probe, let all the facts come out, that type of talk is all talk when push comes to shove and the probe is on their own.

The Trump impeachment inquiry day one is now history. The hysteria mounts. Tomorrow, part two.

This week, I posted the below items on my Facebook page. The first written Tuesday deals with what I consider to be the real evidence developing in the proceedings that could possibly result in impeachment of President Donald J. Trump, although, obviously, bets are off when it goes to the US Senate. The second post was written minutes after the first impeachment hearing yesterday.

 rispone jeff trumps pence 7

President Donald Trump is campaigning for Louisiana GOP gubernatorial candidate Eddie Rispone today in Bossier City. This marks his third rally in Louisiana in recent weeks. He is working overtime to try to unseat Democrat incumbent Governor John Bel Edwards. Vice President Mike Pence has also headlined a rally in Louisiana and hosted multiple high dollar fundraisers. Tomorrow, he will call into the Ringside Politics radio show, M-F 7-11 a.m. CT on WGSO 990-AM & www.Wgso.com, to urge listeners to support Rispone for Governor.

lies trump 7

Are you serious?

That’s how I felt when I saw Donald Trump’s commercial as he screamed to his rally crowd that Louisiana must reject current Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards.

Bad enough that Louisiana Republicans have to import a national figure into the state to tell us whom should be our governor.  But if they are going to do so, please bring in someone with real credibility than bringing in a clown who is always tripping over his falsehoods.

Billionaire Michael Bloomberg is now considering a potential race for President of the United States. The former Mayor of New York, who has flirted with the race many times, has reportedly become concerned with the possibility that ultra-progressive U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) will win the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination, but not be able to defeat President Donald Trump in the 2020 general election. According to Democratic pollster Jef Pollack, Bloomberg’s move “reflects a feeling that the field cannot beat Donald Trump.”

duke vard 4

It has been thirty years since David Duke won his only election victory, as a State Representative, in Louisiana. He followed that race with losses for U.S. Senate, Governor of Louisiana, U.S. President, U.S. Senate, U.S. Congress and U.S. Senate.

Today, his following is mostly based online and outside of Louisiana and his political standing in Louisiana is non-existent. Nevertheless, liberals continue to resurrect the name of David Duke, former KKK leader, to motivate African American voters in Louisiana to support Democrats.
