Meet Mitch Landrieu, the 2020 dark-horse Dem
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Amie Parnes

Democrats looking for new blood to revitalize their party are taking a close look at New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, who is suddenly being discussed as a dark-horse presidential nominee. After delivering a powerful speech last month on the removal of Confederate monuments from his city, Landrieu made national headlines and won praise from Democratic strategists looking for ways to ignite hope in their party. (Snip) Landrieu´s family is considered Louisiana royalty. His father, Moon Landrieu, also served as mayor of New Orleans and also as the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. His sister, Mary Landrieu (D-La.) served in the

A Southern boy who removes Confederate monuments and tries to rewrite their proud history? I don´t think that´s going to catch on. Good luck though.

Mitch Landrieu has to find a career elsewhere, his political career is toast locally. The only chance he has of being elected in Louisiana is as a representative in a district carved out of black neighborhoods that guarantee only a black candidate can win.
Just one example of his ego: He pushed an "air-rights" tax on any existing and future overhangs & balconies over city sidewalks! Owners of all the French Quarter balconies would have to pay a tax each year. In other areas of the city, property owners are threatening to tear down their balconies, but property owners in the French Quarter are stuck because it is a Historical District. We are depending on the City Counsel to stop this insanity, even though there is a majority of black reps on the Counsel.

Protesters topple Confederate

Posted By: NorthernDog- 8/14/2017 9:47:21     Post Reply
Protesters toppled a Confederate monument in Durham, N.C. on Monday night. Video posted to Twitter shows protestors surrounding the statue and chanting "No KKK! No fascists! USA" as several protestors appear to pull down the statue with a rope. WNCN reports the statue was dedicated in Durham in 1924 and was located in front of a local government building. The statue represented a soldier who fought in the Civil War and an inscription on the front read "The Confederate States of America." One organizer of the protest told WNCN that toppling the statue was in response to the violence at a white supremacist

A Chinese automaker reportedly made a quiet bid to acquire Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, raising the distinct possibility that the traditional member of the Detroit Three that was bailed out by U.S. taxpayers could wind up with Chinese ownership. (Snip) The U.S. government bailed out Chrysler in late 2008 and 2009, funding the company´s bankruptcy and helping to negotiate Italian automaker Fiat´s deal to gain control of the brand. Several years later, Fiat gained full ownership of Chrysler. A deal would almost certainly raise political hackles in the U.S. over the possibility that a company rescued by taxpayers could yield to

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Among the chaos of the white supremacist rally and apparent car attack that left one dead and 19 others injured, one group in Charlottesville, Virginia, said they were present to maintain the peace: local and national faith leaders. The leaders are now questioning the response by local and state police officers. Brian McLaren, a former priest and nationally-known religious author and speaker, traveled from Florida to be part of an effort called "Congregate C´Ville," which aimed to bring hundreds of faith leaders across the country to Charlottesville, organizer Seth Wispelwey tells CBS News.

The "vegan mafia" is a group of powerful vegans across the country who fund start-ups, and try to wean people from their dependence on animal products.

ATLANTA — Referring to the crowd of progressive conference-goers as President Trump´s "worst nightmare," Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., tore into members of her own party who believe Democrats should move toward the center in a fiery speech at Netroots Nation. In the Saturday morning keynote, Warren singled out a July op-ed in the New York Times written by Mark Penn and Andrew Stein titled "Back to the Center, Democrats." The headline itself was enough to draw a loud chorus of boos from the audience. "It was all about how we have to stop caring about ´identity politics´ and how we

Former President Obama will re-emerge on the national scene this fall, though Democrats expect him to do so with caution. One aide describes the beginning of a "delicate dance" that aims to put Obama in the Democratic fray, but prevent him from remaining the face of the party. Aides will huddle with Obama in the coming weeks to plot out what shape the former president´s fall schedule will take. Advisers close to him say that while he will play an active role in helping his party rebuild, much of his work will be behind the scenes. He is likely to

The parent company of Applebee´s and IHOP plans to close up to 160 restaurants, vastly boosting the number of eateries from the two comfort-food chains that it plans to shutter. Some 105 to 135 Applebee´s restaurants will close, up from the 40 to 60 that parent DineEquity said would close in the first quarter.

MARTHA’S VINEYARD, Mass.—Jamaicans and other foreign workers have long powered the summer economy in the upscale tourist haven of Martha’s Vineyard, cleaning hotel rooms, waiting tables and mixing fudge. This year, many local businesses had to come up with a Plan B. Facing a shortage of foreign laborers, local restaurants have reduced hours of operation and pared back menus. Managers are cleaning hotel rooms, laundry is piling up and at least one restaurant is using disposable cups to ease the dishwashers’ load. The problem is a scarcity of the H-2B visas used to bring foreign seasonal workers to the U.S.

Marshawn Lynch, a runningback for the Oakland Raiders, sat and ate a banana during the national anthem on Saturday before the Raiders’ first preseason football game against the Arizona Cardinals in Glendale, Arizona. Lynch did not play during the game, and the Raiders’ coach said Lynch’s actions were a “non-issue.” Although Lynch said he has been doing this for 11 years, photos and videos show he stood on many occasions for the national anthem in recent years.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), America’s largest Muslim civil rights group, is calling on state and local governments all over the United States to tear down all monuments and memorials commemorating Confederate leaders and the short-lived Confederate States of America.

San Antonio lawmakers are looking ahead to removing a statue that many people wrongly assumed represented a famed Texas leader who died at the Alamo. Some people refused to wait.

If President Trump pardons former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, it “would be an official presidential endorsement of racism,” the American Civil Liberties Union said on Monday. Arpaio, now 85 years old, is famous for his tough stand on illegal immigration. He was convicted two weeks ago of criminal contempt for violating a court order instructing him to stop detaining people suspected of being in the country illegally. Fox News interviewed Trump on Sunday at his club in Bedminster, N.J. “I am seriously considering a pardon for Sheriff Arpaio,” Fox quoted the president as saying. “He has done a lot
