  • Abortionist trainer: Women injured by abortion don’t matter

    LIVE ACTION NEWS ^ | October 15, 2019 | Laura Nicole |
    Newsweek has published an opinion piece blasting the Louisiana Unsafe Abortion Act currently before the Supreme Court by arguing that the law, which requires abortionists to have “active admitting privileges” at hospitals within 30 miles, is not based on science. The author, Sarah CM Roberts, is an Associate Professor in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Sciences at the radically pro-abortion University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). UCSF is a hotbed of abortion activism that includes funding and training abortionists at dozens of colleges around the country. Given the author’s associations, it is no surprise that the piece is...
  • Rep. Scalise: "What Is Adam Schiff Trying To Hide" With Secret Hearings?

    House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) said House Intel Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) wants to impeach President Donald Trump behind closed doors in an interview Monday with FOX Business Network's Maria Bartiromo on 'Mornings With Maria.' "Well, this is part of Adam Schiff's -- it's like a kangaroo court he set up, but they've got this shroud of secrecy, where they want to drip out things that they want to allude to, they make false accusations to try to," Scalise said. "And so, why Adam Schiff continues to hide in secret the Volker testimony, he was already starting to...
  • Brutal wipeout for Democrats in Louisiana and the press trying to keep it quiet

    The last of the Louisiana state election numbers are in and it's not pretty for the Democrats. Not only does its moderate Democratic governor, John Bel Edwards, face a runoff as noted here, the state Senate has taken a supermajority. And a whole bunch of key state offices went squarely to Republicans. Funny how the press isn't covering this much. But Guy Benson at Townhall is, and he found a Democratic Party "decimated": Among statewide office-holders, the incumbent GOP Lieutenant Governor (68 percent), Attorney General (66 percent), Treasurer (60 percent, and Agricultural Commissioner (58 percent) were all re-elected without the...

    "The Five" discussed Monday whether or not Democrats are underestimating President Trump and his ability to connect with voters. Fox News correspondent-at-large Geraldo Rivera made the case that the president's Friday rally showed that he will be "formidable." "I'm telling you no Democrat could match that enthusiasm, even with Beyonce they couldn't get their kind of a crowd and keep that crowd for as long as he did," Geraldo said Monday. "He had them spellbound. He is a master performer." Trump slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., during a Friday night rally in Louisiana, saying "Nancy Pelosi hates the United...

    The Republican National Committee should offer to be the official sponsor of a weekly Democratic presidential debate. There would be no better advertisement for President Trump’s re-election. Every time the Democratic presidential contenders gather together, it’s a contest between the merely delusional, the vaguely vindictive and the patently absurd. There are funny moments, like when Andrew Yang risked the ire of the political-correctness police and told us, “I am Asian, so I know a lot of doctors.” There are substantive moments, like when former Vice President Joe Biden reversed himself on China, apparently now agreeing with Mr. Trump that intellectual-property...

    They Hayride ^ | October 13, 2019 | Scott McKay
    There was a decent indication of the rout in Louisiana legislative races to come back in August, when the Democrats failed to qualify credible candidates in the majority of districts up for grabs due to term limits – including several districts they currently control. We knew then that the Republican majorities of 60 votes in the House (out of 105) and 25 votes in the Senate (out of 39) were going to expand. When qualifying was over, those 60 House votes became 63 because the Democrats didn’t event contest seats being vacated by Sam Jones, Truck Gisclair and James Armes....

    Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards’ quest for a second term as the Deep South’s only Democratic governor will stretch over another month, as voters denied him an outright primary win Saturday and sent him to a runoff election. The incumbent’s inability to top 50% of the vote in the six-candidate field raised questions about his reelection chances against a national Republican offensive that includes President Donald Trump. Trump made a last-minute appeal to Louisiana’s voters to reject Edwards. Edwards will compete in the Nov. 16 runoff against Eddie Rispone, a Baton Rouge businessman and longtime GOP political donor making his...

    Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards, a Democrat, will face a Republican candidate in a runoff after he failed to get more than 50 percent of the vote in Saturday's "jungle primary" in his GOP-friendly state. President Donald Trump rallied on Friday in the state to support the Republican candidates on the eve of the election, calling Edwards "a liberal Democrat who has sold you out." The jungle primary meant that instead of top candidates of each party facing off one-on-one, any number of candidates from any part could compete for a final against the top two. On Friday Trump asked...

    The winners of the 2019 Little League World Series flew home from Washington to Louisiana in style -- aboard Air Force One. President Donald Trump met with the Eastbank All-Stars on Friday at the White House. At the meeting, Trump asked the team members' parents whether the team could hop on Air Force One for the ride back to Louisiana since Trump was already headed to the state for a campaign rally. The team then met again with Trump at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland, on the tarmac near Air Force One, and they all ascended onto the presidential...

    Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards fought Saturday to hang on to a rare Democratic governorship in Deep South Trump territory against a national GOP offensive aimed at forcing him into a runoff. Republicans were trying to hold Edwards under the 50% benchmark the region's only Democratic governor needed to win outright over five others in the field. President Donald Trump made a last-minute appeal to Louisiana's voters to reject Edwards. Edwards, Louisiana's only Democratic statewide elected official, faced two main GOP challengers, U.S. Rep. Ralph Abraham and businessman Eddie Rispone. But three lesser-known contenders also could peel off a few...

    President Donald Trump will make an 11th-hour trip to Louisiana to stump for Republican candidates who are attempting to unseat Gov. John Bel Edwards, the only Democratic governor in the Deep South. The president plans to hold a rally in Lake Charles on Friday, alongside Republicans Eddie Rispone and Ralph Abraham. "Keep Democrat Governor Edwards under 50%, force a runoff and have a great new Republican Governor," Trump tweeted Sunday, announcing his plan to visit Louisiana on the eve of Election Day. The Louisiana Republican Party also tweeted about the news, along with an image of Trump altered to make...

    Republican congressional leaders accused Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and Democrats of rigging the impeachment scheme after news broke that Schiff was in contact with the whistleblower before the complaint against President Donald Trump was filed. The report from the New York Times claimed that Schiff received an “early account by the future whistleblower” days before the person filed the complaint accusing Trump of presidential misconduct. The report seemed to be confirmed by a Schiff spokesman, who said: “Like other whistle-blowers have done before and since under Republican and Democratic-controlled committees, the whistle-blower contacted the committee for guidance on how to...

    Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards’ decision to hire a chief deputy previously accused of sexual harassment is the target of a new Republican-financed attack ad that aims to dent the Democratic incumbent’s support from women. The 30-second spot released Thursday by the Republican Governors Association’s PAC comes as national GOP leaders step up efforts to keep the Deep South’s only Democratic governor from outright victory in the Oct. 12 election. Vice President Mike Pence plans to travel to Louisiana on Saturday to rally support for defeating Edwards. Read more here: https://www.bnd.com/news/business/article235745342.html#storylink=cpy
