  • LSU Determined To Split It's Fan Base And Destroy It's Sports Programs

    LSU Facebook Basketball page ^ | 07-09-2020 | Uncle Sham
    With this latest insult to it's majority white fan base, LSU and many of it's former black basketball players put their skin tones above what is best for the school and it's support from fans in another display of total ignorance in support of Black Lives Matter. How many more insults can a state financed institution throw at it's fans who just want to be left alone? That the school actively supports this effort and that it is occurring during an election year is criminal. The leftist behind all of this have destroyed one thing after another in their demonic...

    Sen. John Kennedy on Monday advised Americans to “build a fallout shelter” if presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden is elected president in November. “The vice president says he will transform America. He will and the American people will pay a fearsome price,” Kennedy, R-La., told “Hannity.” Kennedy said that Biden’s foreign policy is “hugs and hot cocoa” for America’s enemies. “Build a fallout shelter. You’ll need it. Weakness invites the wolves,” Kennedy said.

  • Higher Taxes, Layoffs, And Service Cuts: The State And City Budget Crisis Is Here

    The recession is hitting state and city budgets hard in the new fiscal year that starts on July 1. They are responding by firing workers, reducing services, and even increasing taxes. Massive federal aid is the only real solution. The new fiscal year for 46 states and many cities begins on Wednesday. And a flood of red ink caused by the deep pandemic recession is forcing them to fire workers, reduce spending and services, and even raise taxes (one of the worst things you can do in a recession). Without Congress providing up to $1 trillion in federal aid, non-federal...

    The measure would have required abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at hospitals within 30 miles of a clinic. The Supreme Court ruled Monday that Louisiana's tough restriction on abortion violates the Constitution, a surprising victory for abortion rights advocates from an increasingly conservative court. The 5-4 decision in which Chief Justice John Roberts joined with the courts liberal justices struck down a law passed by Louisiana's legislature in 2014 that required any doctor offering abortion services to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles. Its enforcement had been blocked by a protracted legal battle. Two Louisiana doctors...

    HREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – An attempted home invasion and robbery is thwarted by a sister with a gun who’s quick reaction helped to save her brother. It was early Sunday morning when a Shreveport homeowner said he was working on his Jeep in his garage along with his sister when two men with guns rushed up to him shouting “where’s the money?” “I was leaning into my Jeep and two boys came up behind me and one grabbed me by my arm and the other grabbed me by my head and went to walk me into my house and …...

    As a renowned foodie there aren't many dishes that could faze him. So Gordon Ramsay didn't think twice as he tucked into a swamp rat stew whilst filming his National Geographic series, Uncharted. The potty-mouthed chef, 53, helped catch and kill a semiaquatic rodent known as a coypu or nutria whilst in the Southern American state of Louisiana.

    John Roberts is a politician — a politician who consistently makes laws, inconsistently applies the Constitution, and can't be voted out of office. Knock, knock. Who’s there? Unelected leftist politicians in robes with lifetime tenure. Turns out, the Supreme Court is a joke, and the punchline is Chief Justice John Roberts.Two high court decisions this week brought that reality into focus, when the George W. Bush-appointed chief sided with leftist justices to say sexual orientation is “sex,” and that the current commander in chief can’t undo unlawful executive action from a past president because of his reasons.Roberts has quite the...

    It's visuals that take down a president, and the video of George Floyd's death is about as graphic as it gets — just like the victims of Hurricane Katrina stranded on rooftops, waving for help that was slow to come. Katrina was the end of President Bush's presidency, even though it occurred at the beginning of his second term. After Katrina, Bush lost credibility and limped through the last three and a half years of his administration. After Katrina, Republicans lost control of Congress, and Bush was powerless to accomplish anything, even if he had wished to. Bush was charged...

    Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards on Friday signed a bill into law that makes it a crime to throw water on members of law enforcement. The bill amends previous Louisiana law that excluded water from the list of liquids that can lead to criminal charges if thrown on an officer, WAFB reports. The new law also removes a requirement that the offender has to be incarcerated or detained at the time that they doused the officer. Penalties for violating the new law include a fine of no more than $500 and between 15 days and six months behind bars without...

    The third named storm of the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season will make landfall by early afternoon on Sunday along the Gulf Coast, but will not grow any stronger before roaring ashore. As of Sunday morning, Tropical Storm Cristobal is still a 50 mph sustained wind storm and its window for strengthening is gone. The official forecast from the National Hurricane Center (NHC) keeps Cristobal at a 50 mph storm through landfall and will then weaken as it moves north up the Mississippi River Valley. The center of the storm should pull over land early afternoon around Houma, La. Tropical storm...

He said: I will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America or our country. Let me just tell what I see or what I feel when the national anthem is played and when I look at the flag of the United States.

    Image courtesy Dean Weingarten Louisiana is one of a few states which ban guns in churches but allow church leaders to allow guns on a case by case basis. According to Concealed, as of 2018, there were ten states and the District of Columbia with this policy of religious discrimination against churches that approve of an armed population. The laws in states that ban guns in church are a way to demonize guns. They fairly scream: Guns Bad! Good People Don't Have Guns!The laws flip the script of the Second Amendment, where guns are assumed to be part of...
