    I happened to catch a jaw-dropping incident on the Fox News Channel air yesterday, as Shepard Smith’s breaking news coverage of the Baton Rouge police ambush brought on Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal for telephone comments. In the course of attempting to heal the raw nerves, Gov. Jindal said “all lives matter” and was rebuked by the crew-cut newsman. Kristinn Taylor of Gateway Pundit captured the exchange:

    Because it was in the middle of the afternoon and because it was Shep Smith I wondered if anyone else had seen this exchange in which Shep chastised Governor Jindal for using an offensive term:The answer was a resounding yes. The offensive term? “All Lives Matter.” It takes a special kind of stupid to berate a former governor for using an innocuous term that some people have decided is objectionable. “Very, very divisive phrase – I don’t understand…so unhelpful.” “Why would you…I don’t understand why you’d say that?” Said by Shep with that tone of superiority made up of equal parts...

    On Sunday, Fox News’ Shepard Smith slammed former Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, who had the temerity to say that “all lives matter.” Twitter responded by demanding Smith be fired. “Shepard, I will say this, look, it, it is time for folks across party lines, across ideological lines to con–to condemn this violence, to condemn this insanity. We gotta come together. We’ve got to say that all lives matter,” Jindal said, according to a partial transcript posted at the Gateway Pundit. “It doesn’t matter what color you are: Black, white, brown, red, it doesn’t matter. All lives matter. We’ve got to...
  • Louisiana Re-brands Common Core in Attempt to Dupe Citizens

    State officials in Louisiana tried to deceive citizens last week by approving what amounts to, essentially, a glorified name change for the deeply unpopular Common Core education standards pushed by the Obama administration. Basically, policymakers re-branded the scheme as “Louisiana Standards,” while pretending that there had been some “revisions” to the widely loathed education-nationalization effort. However, according to experts and activists involved in the process, the politically toxic national education standards imposed on state governments with federal funding and pressure remain almost entirely intact in Louisiana, despite the new name. Similar scams by government officials have taken place in states...

    Did you ever wonder why unsuccessful candidates merely “suspend” their campaigns after losing a key primary, instead of terminating them? Surely all those candidates knew that it’s impossible to restart a presidential campaign once it’s been suspended. In the famous words of Theodore Roosevelt’s daughter Alice Longworth, “You can’t make a soufflé rise twice.”

    David Lane, the founder of the American Renewal Project, argues, "Jesus Christ is not on the ballot in 2016."Debunking a recent article published by the Christian Post (Leading Southern Baptist ethicist Russell Moore says Christians should vote for third-party or write-in candidates rather than settle for the 'lesser of two evils'), Lane argues that "none of the [presidential] candidates can claim "no evil" as [their] campaign motto." And if Moore and others self- ascribed evangelical leaders believe they know who the "perfect candidate" is for 2016-- they should run for office, he claims.In other words, there's no perfect presidential candidate.But...

    The Marshall Report ^ | January 7th, 2016 | Dianne Marshall
    Well, so far complaints involving the ineligibility for Cruz, Rubio and Jindal to run for president have been filed in three states. Florida, Vermont, and MD. It appears all these people have to do is show proof of the eligibility requirements to run for president as stated in the constitution. So far none have, however Jindal has dropped out so it is moot for him. (Citizenship is not the same as the naturalization requirements for citizenship to run for President as stated in the constitution.) For some odd reason, Cruz has had his birth records sealed. He’ll have to answer...

    Saudi Arabia is mulling the sale of shares in Aramco, believed to be the world's most valuable company, as part of plans to repair its finances and open up its economy. The announcement was made by the country's deputy crown prince as Saudi's secretive, state-owned oil firm grapples with the effects of oil prices nearing 12-year lows . Mohammed bin Salman told The Economist: "That is something that is being reviewed, and we believe a decision will be made over the next few months." The Saudi economy has taken a battering from the oil price decline and the finance ministry...

    After the British victory at the Battle of the Second El Alamein in November of 1942, Winston Churchill spoke to the British people. Churchill eloquently stated, “Now, this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.” Perhaps, the same can be said of the opening salvos of the 2016 Presidential Election. We have watched numerous debates on both sides, filled with candidates grandiose and not very grandiose. Gradually, the field is being thinned and on February 1, 2016, the games truly begin at the Iowa Caucuses....

    U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) speaks at his rally for religious liberty on 8/21/15 in Des Moines. Photo credit: Dave Davidson (Prezography.com) When Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal exited the race a little more than a month ago, I was not sure I would offer another public endorsement. As you can imagine, I have had different campaigns reach out, and I’ve struggled with making a decision. I did have a short list; I admire and respect those who were on it, but I knew that eventually I was going to have make a decision whether I made it public or...

    I keep telling my friends in the national media that if you think Bobby Jindal has a chance in hell of becoming president, send a reporter down to spend a few days in Louisiana, seeing what condition he’s leaving his state in. In today’s NYT, Campbell Robertson tells the country about the current mess. Excerpts: "Since I've been in Louisiana I've never seen a budget cycle as desperate as this one," said Robert Travis Scott, the president of the Public Affairs Research Council, a nonpartisan group based in Baton Rouge.Louisiana's budget shortfall is projected to reach $1.6 billion next...
  • No FAFSA, No Diploma in Louisiana

    In order to graduate from high school in Louisiana, students will soon be required to apply for federal financial aid for college. The state's Board of Elementary and Secondary Education approved the new graduation prerequisite earlier this month, and the new policy will go into effect beginning with the class of 2018. The move makes the Pelican State the first in the country to require students to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, also known as the FAFSA, in order to receive a high school diploma.
  • Edwards says he'll remove work requirements for food stamps

    Lake Charles American Press ^ | December 21, 2015 | Melinda DeSlatte
    Gov.-elect John Bel Edwards intends to remove work requirements that Gov. Bobby Jindal has enacted for more than 60,000 food stamp recipients. Edwards sent a letter Monday to the U.S. Department of Agriculture saying he will seek a federal waiver of the work requirements. The governor-elect says Louisiana's unemployment rate qualifies it to skip the work mandate. He's asking the USDA and the state social services department to stop any interruption of benefits until Edwards can reapply for the waiver that Jindal allowed to expire. The work requirements are supposed to kick in Jan. 1 for adults aged 18 to...

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- New Orleans is poised to make a sweeping break with its Confederate past as city leaders decide whether to remove prominent monuments from some of its busiest streets. With support from Mayor Mitch Landrieu, a majority on the City Council appears ready to take down four monuments, including a towering statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. Their ordinance has sparked passionate responses for and against these symbols, and both sides will get one more say at a special council meeting before Thursday's vote.

    Canada Free Press ^ | 12/19/15 | Jeff Crouere
    Mayor Landrieu created a firestorm, stoked racial divisions, and attacked the city’s history, all to promote his political career. Yesterday, in the “City that Care Forgot,” New Orleans politicians displayed very little care for their city’s history, but showed they cared a great deal for political correctness. In a 6-1 vote, City Council members passed an ordinance supported by Mayor Mitch Landrieu to declare four historic Confederate monuments “nuisances” and remove them from the city landscape. It was a big political victory for Landrieu who created this controversy after the murder of nine African Americans in Charleston, South Carolina, by...

    Not since I voted for Ronald Reagan in 1980 have I been so excited about the prospect of a true conservative as I was for 2016. With the likes of Rick Perry, Bobby Jindal, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 94% there was plenty to be excited about. What I didn’t realize was the depth of disgust and anger that the base had for the establishment republicans. It wasn’t so apparent to me given that I have been living with RINO’s and turncoats up here in Massachusetts for decades. Then enter Trump. I could never have...

    Where does Bobby Jindal go to get his reputation back? The Louisiana governor and former presidential candidate took some heat following last January's Charlie Hebdo attack when he spoke about Muslim no-go zones in Europe. No-go zones are Muslim enclaves, completely separate from civil law and authority, run according to street justice and Muslim tradition. Jindal was quickly rebuked by political commentators and even the mayor of London, Boris Johnson, who insisted that "no-go zones" are fictional. "Jindal condemns imaginary no-go zones" wrote Steve Benen on Rachel Maddow's MaddowBlog. A Washington Post headline mused, "Bobby Jindal Won’t Back Down on...
