    Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-LA) scolded Attorney General William Barr ... in his opening statement. "When you all came here and brought your top staff, you brought no Black people. That, sir, is systematic racism. That is exactly what John Lewis spent his life fighting,” Richmond said. "I would just suggest that actions speak louder than words and you really should keep the name of the Honorable John Lewis out of the Department of Justice’s mouth."

    Lousiana GOP Sen. John Kennedy has blocked a bill drafted by a top Democratic Senator that would accelerate the flow of Indian visa workers and immigrants into Americans’ office jobs. “The American people deserve an immigration system that looks like somebody designed it on purpose,” Kennedy told Democrat Sen. Dick Durbin during a polite conversation on the Senate floor. He said: I am rising to object [to Durbin’s bill] because a number of my colleagues … would like a little additional time to study this bill. But equally important, if not more important, many of my colleagues’ sentiment is that...
  • Louisiana Discovers the Always-Growing Costs of Free College

    06/12/2019 7:44:24 AM PDT · by reaganaut1 · 17 replies
    Student loan debt has become a major concern for young people. In response, some Democratic candidates for president are offering “free college” proposals. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders was the first presidential candidate to propose this in 2016. His plan came with a price tag of $47 billion and had the federal government covering two-thirds of the cost. In 2019, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren proposed a more ambitious plan that would forgive student loan debt for everyone with a household income of less than $100,000. Some states, too, have embraced free college: Currently, 21 of them offer some kind of tuition-free...

    BATON ROUGE, La. – Louisiana voters chose Saturday to send Republican state Treasurer John Kennedy to the U.S. Senate, filling the nation's last Senate seat and giving the GOP a 52-48 edge in the chamber when the new term begins in January. Kennedy had always been the runoff election's front-runner in a state that overwhelmingly supported Donald Trump. He defeated Democrat Foster Campbell, a state utility regulator whose chances were seen as such a long-shot that national Democratic organizations offered little assistance to Campbell's campaign. As he celebrated the victory, Kennedy said he represented change in Washington. "I believe that...

    NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana – What started as a protest against President-Elect Donald Trump soon turned to violent riots where one of New Orleans’ most famous monuments was covered in graffiti and glass windows were shattered out of a nearby bank. Hundreds showed up to denounce the election of Trump–but despite media reports of a peaceful gathering, the crowd grew increasingly hostile and violent, according to Breitbart Texas sources on the ground. Students holding signs reading “End white supremacy” originally gathered on the steps of the Lee Circle monument before the demonstrations turned destructive. Lee Circle was fully covered in graffiti...

    Louisiana and Oklahoma have declined a Russian request to send its diplomats to monitor polling stations on Election Day, according to letters from state officials provided to CNN. In turning down the request from the Russian consulate in Houston, Louisiana Secretary of State Tom Schedler wrote that recent flooding had left his office extremely short-staffed trying to deal with the damage and prepare adequately for the vote on November 8.

    Donald Trump, the New York real estate mogul who has cannon-balled the 2016 Republican presidential race, incensed party elders and set off hand-ringing across the country, is enjoying a sizable lead on the eve of Louisiana's GOP primary. The University of New Orleans found Wednesday (March 2) that 38 percent of likely Republican voters wanted to see him win the party nomination in Cleveland. His nearest rival, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, scored 26 percent of the vote and Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., just 11 percent. Ohio Gov. John Kasich won 5 percent. The survey removed neurosurgeon Ben Carson from its...

    Governor Bobby Jindal of Lousiana, who pledged not to raise taxes, has raised taxes, aided by the radical Islam loving Grover Norquist. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal was caught in a jam. He had to plug a $1.6 billion projected deficit for next year — 20 percent of Louisiana’s general fund — and he had to do it without violating an anti-tax pledge he made to Americans for Tax Reform (ATR), the influential conservative group headed by Grover Norquist. Jindal’s solution: eliminating $526 million in tax rebates, most notably for the state’s business inventory tax. Norquist’s group blessed the decision, concluding...

    SHREVEPORT, La. -- "Goin' Home." It keeps going around and around in my head as we drive around my old home town -- the slow, sweet musical theme Dvorak used for the largo in his New World symphony. By writing lyrics for it, a gifted pupil of his turned it into a kind of modern Negro spiritual, putting into words the plaintive, elegiac spirit of the music -- and the longing felt by anyone homesick for an irretrievable past: Goin' home, goin' home, I'm a-goin' home; Quiet-like, some still day, I'm jes' goin' home. It's not far, jes' close...

  • Louisiana State House's second-ranking leader, Joel Robideaux, switches to the Republican Party

    BATON ROUGE, La. — The number two ranking member of the state House is becoming a Republican. Rep. Joel Robideaux of Lafayette has been a lifelong independent, but he announced Thursday he's switching to the GOP. The change comes as Robideaux is hoping to become House speaker in the next term that begins in January — in a chamber that is majority Republican. Robideaux says he decided to become a Republican after discussing a possible switch with GOP Gov. Bobby Jindal. "I have prided myself on being able to work with everyone, no matter their party affiliation, and to forge...

    The guest list for Rick Perry's August 6 day of prayer won't include many U.S. governors. Only two governors, both Republican, plan to join Perry at the event at Houston's Reliant Stadium, which Perry has labeled as a non-denominational, apolitical, Christian prayer meeting. Perry invited all of his fellow U.S. governors to the event. Just two - Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback and Lousiana Gov. Bobby Jindal - have accepted the invitation. Mark P. Jones, a government professor at Rice University, said he is not surprised by the lukewarm response. "For a Democrat there is nothing to be gained by attending,...

    BATON ROUGE, La. — A Houma area state senator Monday became the Louisiana Legislature's newest party switcher to the Republicans. Sen. Norby Chabert, a first-term senator from Little Caillou, announced that he has moved from the Democratic Party to the GOP. The member of a longtime Democratic political family, Chabert holds the Senate seat once held by his father Leonard and brother Marty. He's the fourth Democrat in the Senate to switch parties in the last five months, as the fall elections near and the state continues a trend to the right. Chabert said the national Democratic Party and President...

    BATON ROUGE - The Republican Party's nascent majority in the state Senate continued to grow Thursday when a Democratic lawmaker from the Baton Rouge suburbs announced he is switching parties. Jody Amedee of Gonzalez, a trial lawyer first elected to the upper chamber in 2003, became the third Senate Democrat in the past five months to move into the Republican column. Amedee's move gives the GOP a 21-18 majority in the Senate and comes after two veteran lawmakers -- John Alario of Westwego and John Smith of Leesville -- switched parties last year. Republicans also picked up two seats in...

    The latest refugee is State Rep. Bubba Chaney of Rayville, who made his switch official today. With Chaney’s move, there are now 53 Republicans, 47 Democrats and four independents in the House, with one seat open (the one formerly held by Democrat-turned Republican Fred Mills, who just won a special election for the Senate) and set for a special election next month. Chaney, who is serving his first term in the Louisiana Legislature, changed his party affiliation at the Richland Parish Courthouse late Monday afternoon. “I just didn’t feel that my philosophy as a traditional conservative Blue Dog Democrat has...

    BATON ROUGE -- Attorney General James "Buddy" Caldwell plans to switch his party affiliation from Democrat to Republican this week, according to multiple sources who spoke on condition of anonymity. Caldwell, who is up for re-election this year, becomes the latest in a long line of conservative Louisiana Democrats to leave the party. His departure will leave U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu as the lone Democratic statewide elected official. As recently as 2004, Democrats held both Louisiana's U.S. Senate seats, as well as six of the seven statewide constitutional offices. First elected in 2007, Caldwell was the only Democrat to join...
