Louisiana has never suffered from a pandemic as much as the Delta strain of the Covid-19.

Here are the latest news stories dealing with this issue

How challenging for the State of Louisiana is Covid-19's omnipresent Delta variant? What impact is it having upon the state's premier health system? 

Today, the President and CEO of Ochsner Health, Warner Thomas, was a guest on Morning Joe to discuss the raging Covid-19 Delta virus. Thomas said it is the fourth surge in Louisiana.  During the interview, CEO Thomas talked about the impact the virus was having upon medical services, even to the point that over the past ten days, Ochsner had to turn away 300 transfer patients from other facilities due to the level of COVID patients Ochsner is treating and due to the level and pressure on staffing.

Ochsner is Louisiana’s largest nonprofit academic health center and is the state’s largest private employer. The health system has facilities in New Orleans, Jefferson Parish, Kenner, the River Parishes, Baton Rouge, the Northshore, the West Bank, Raceland, Houma, St. Bernard, Shreveport, and in Mississippi.

A SMOKING ADMISSION?

On Friday, Congress released secret Department Of Justice documents. They revealed that former President Donald Trump once again tried to pressure the DOJ to continue his Don Quixote impossible dream--to overturn the 2020 election.

“Moreover, the entire project at times feels like product-placement for Trump’s various assets. Contestants stay at the Trump Towers and speak of him in hushed, reverent tones, fretting about what to name their teams in order to impress him.” Variety review of The Apprentice Jan. 4, 2004.

The groveling subservience and worship of Trump by many of his subordinates began almost immediately. Who can forget 1st chief of staff, Reince Priebus, groveling before his boss at the first cabinet meeting. Before starting, Trump went around the table and gave his appointees a chanced to tell the media what a swell guy he was.

IT ALL SMELLS SO GASLIGHTING

Republicans, especially Senator Cassidy of Louisiana and Donald Trump of Conspiracy Land, are blaming the Democrats, President Biden, and the media for the recent rise in Covid-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths.

Cassidy, also a medical doctor, was asked during Fox News Sunday about the recent increase in covid incidents across the nation. Meantime, continuing his assault on the truth, Trump exploded another scud this weekend, designed to spray chaos, regardless of the outcome.

Perhaps one of the legacies the recently deceased former Governor, Edwin Edwards, will forever maintain is his slaying of David Duke in a world-wide watched election for the state’s stop spot, Governor of the State of Louisiana.

Some far-right wing sites are publishing the identity of the "alleged" cop that shot Ashli Babbitt.  The publications I have seen are showing a black man as the "murderer" as they put it.

You do recall, Babbitt was the lady killed on 1/6 as she tried to crash through the window of the door that separated the rioters  from the lawmakers.

trump flag point 11zon
In the War of 1812, Francis  Scott Keys wrote The Star-Spangled Banner, a tribute to our flag kept aloft by patriots who sacrificed their lives every time it was knocked down one perilous night by withering cannon fire from 100 + British Men of War anchored off Fort McHenry. The Fort was not a full-fledged military establishment and contained many families with abundant women and children but that was immaterial to the invaders. 

On Jan. 6, X-President Trump’s shock troops turned our flag upside down and used their poles to stab, maim, and kill police, hunt legislators they could murder, and desecrated the U.S. Capitol a stone’s throw from the White House the British burned during the same War of 1812. Men and women in the hundreds of thousands have died under our flag to preserve freedom and our way of life. It’s a time of choosing whether we are Americans, or worshipers of pagan god.

bent minBENT OUT OF SHAPE?

I'm not. So what if the Senate Republicans refuse to approve a bipartisan 9/11 style investigation. By standing against transparency, they don’t mind kicking the capitol police in the gut one more time. Nor do they care about hiding all roads leading to Donald Trump or to others involved in the Jan. 6 insurrection.

They say they want to put the past behind them. Really? Six months past the elections, they want states to investigate election results in swing states. For them, state certifications don’t matter. Nor do over 60 court decisions including those by the president’s own appointees. They’re fine with the Lord and Master hiding his past while he continues to spread the BIG LIE.

NOW THAT THE LIZ CHENEY "ET TU ELISE" MOMENT IS HISTORY...

Where do we go from here? That depends upon knowing, just where are we now?

On Friday, Elise Stefanic got her “kiss the ring” opportunity showing her immense loyalty to the Mar-a-Lago Emperor for his elevating her to Cheney’s perch. The New York State Congresswoman is in perfect company with Kevin McCarthy and Steve Scalise.

Taking the Trump BIGGER BIG LIE oath

Written by

oath down

Since the November vote, Trump has been calling the 2020 contest (the one where he got shellacked), a "stolen election". He promoted what others coined "Stop the Steal". That phrase inspired some of his most angry supporters to the "The Big Insurrection" at the nation’s capitol. As a result, hopefully, some of those folks who he whipped into a frenzy will spend time in the BIG HOUSE.

After over 60 court decisions, including his own 6-3 majority US Supreme Court bouncing him on his supreme tush, Trump continues with his attack upon our democracy.   He has "ghosts-of-a-chance" fantasy to change the elections results.  His behavior reminds many of us of an emotionally spoiled-brat--who will torch earth rather than being branded as a “loser”.

SCREW GOP min
So, the GOP doesn't like Trump hogging donors for $ which he is demanding cash go only to his Save America PAC. He claims he doesn't want any $ to go to RINO'S (and fools) and presumably those who impeached him.  He says he doesn't want his name/identity to be used without his approval.
If you're a donor, just what do you do? Do contribute to his personal slush fund PAC or do you stay loyal to the party? True, the party might help people like Rep. Cheney, Romney and others.
But, don't forget, the number of Republican US Senators not seeking re-election is now up to FIVE.  Not good, even for mastermind Mitch McConnell.
