In 2016, a rare breed, a maverick political outsider and businessman Donald Trump ran for President of the United States as a Republican. He faced 16 establishment Republicans as challengers who had years of political experience and extensive party connections. Despite the formidable opposition, he secured the GOP presidential nomination. It was a political miracle, only made possible because of the unique skills and name recognition of Donald Trump.

It is never easy taking on the party establishment, as U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is discovering. In 2016, Sanders was denied the nomination by the ultimate insider, Hillary Clinton. She received unfair assistance from the Democratic National Committee and the media. She was even given questions in advance of a CNN presidential debate by former DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile.

President Donald Trump did not create the Coronavirus. He does not want it to spread. His administration has taken steps, to date, that has limited the breakout. 

Nor did Trump cause the stock market to nosedive this week.  There are many causes for what many are calling a correction that has nothing to do with Trump.

Nor, by the way, are the Chinese engaged in some type of wild-brained conspiracy to cause the US stock market to crash, ushering in a more socialist-friendly American government.

As usual, Democrats will stop at nothing to blame President Trump for literally everything. With the world anxiously watching the spread of the coronavirus, the Democrats have decided that President Trump is responsible. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer are blaming the President for not allocating enough money to combat the spread of the disease.

Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer believes the President’s response to this health threat has been weak and delayed and that it will result in his Katrina type of political disaster. For those of us who survived Hurricane Katrina, it is disgraceful for any politician to use such a tragedy to score political points. The deadly storm killed over 1,800 people, but it was a disaster that was man-made in many respects. The levees designed to protect New Orleans failed and 80% of the city flooded. It was a failure at all levels of government: local, state and national.

Thankfully, Mardi Gras 2020 is over. It was a very challenging celebration this year as tragedy struck multiple times. Sadly, two people were killed in separate float accidents. The first one occurred during the Krewe of Nyx, while the second one occurred during the largest Mardi Gras krewe, Endymion. The last accidental death at a Mardi Gras parade occurred in 2008, but, in recent years, this was the first time that two people had accidentally died in the same carnival season.

It is time for another presidential election, so it is time for the media and their Democratic Party allies to begin their hysterical warnings about Russian “meddling.” This was their mantra in the 2016 election. It led to congressional investigations, the failed Mueller investigation and the waste of almost $40 million in taxpayer funds. Of course, Mueller’s team of partisan Democratic Party attorneys found no collusion with the Russians by President Trump or his campaign.

We don't need Russian Bots to tell us there is a misinformation campaign taking place as we crank up for the upcoming elections. President Donald J. Trump is taking care of that Russian misinformation issue in the way that "only Trump can." We now know that in addition to his and the GOP Senate's refusal to pass any legislation that could stem the voter manipulation tide, the president has other ways to handle the problem.

landrieu 2014

What a profound difference makes six years!

Back in February 2014, Louisiana was embroiled in a hotly-contested free-for-all for the U.S. Senate position. Retired, and unknown Air Force Colonel Rob Maness had just announced his candidacy to oust Senator Mary Landrieu, the powerful senior Democrat US Senator. Landrieu, generally had been hailed as the hero from the Hurricane Katrina wars fighting the emotional unending battles to save South Louisiana and New Orleans.  However, Landrieu faced one major obstacle--President Barack Obama who down in these parts was less popular than the BP Oil Spill (if that were possible).

In 2017, New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell made history as the first female to be elected Mayor of New Orleans. She began her tenure the following year and is nearing the mid-point of her four-year term.

At this juncture, it is a good time to reflect on her political standing in New Orleans. Historically, New Orleans Mayors have easily won re-election. The last incumbent Mayor of New Orleans to lose re-election was Robert Maestri in 1946. Without a major scandal, Cantrell will be a strong favorite to win a second term.

This week was dominated by the questions regarding the sentencing of political operative Roger Stone. Last January, he was subjected to a pre-dawn raid by federal officials carrying assault rifles. Somehow, CNN was informed about the raid and their cameras captured the dramatic footage of agents entering home and arresting Stone.

I dislike epitaph baskets. I know you do too.

Yet we hear them, read them and even say them. I think at one time or another, we are all guilty. I know I am.

Hundreds of millions of dollars have been spent over the past year pumped into two small states, Iowa and New Hampshire respectively as they formally opened up the presidential election season.  Ever since the first Democratic candidate entered the field, the number of competitors for president has winnowed down to a handful. Left standing are those men and women who hope to have the momentum and the staying power to become the Democratic nominee chosen at this summer's convention owning the right to go up against current White House occupant, Donald Trump.
