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.

President Trump´s approval rating has bounced off a previously low point, according to a new poll. According to data from the latest Harvard-Harris Poll survey, provided exclusively to The Hill, 48 percent of respondents say they approve of the job Trump is doing, compared to 52 percent who say they disapprove. (Snip) Mark Penn, the poll´s co-director who has past experience as a pollster for both former President Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton´s 2008 presidential campaign, has argued that the polls are underestimating Trump´s support by 5 or 6 points by sampling all U.S. adults, rather than only those who

The boy jumped on the manure and started to shovel away happily. The stunned father asked why. His son said, “There must be a pony in

Tesla is exploring the possibility of establishing a Chinese manufacturing plant with the Shanghai municipal government, the U.S. electric car-maker said on Thursday in a statement. Tesla has said it wants to build electric cars in China to avoid a 25-percent tariff on imported vehicles. In the statement, it said, "While we expect most of our production to remain in the U.S., we need to establish local factories to ensure affordability for the markets they serve." Tesla said it expects to "more clearly define" its China production plans by year end.

Then the Republican voters in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District unexpectedly showed up in droves.

ST.

Financial terms of the settlement approved by U.S. District Judge E. Richard Webber were not disclosed. Anthony Gray, the attorney for Brown´s parents, declined comment, as did Ferguson Mayor James Knowles III. Michael Brown Sr. and Lezley McSpadden sued the city, former Police Chief Tom Jackson and former police officer Darren Wilson in 2015.

(Facebook) - Former President Barack Obama took to Facebook to ask Republicans to reconsider their efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare. "I recognize that repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act has become a core tenet of the Republican Party," Obama wrote. "Still, I hope that our senators, many of whom I know well, step back and measure what’s really at stake, and consider that the rationale for action, on health care or any other issue, must be something more than simply undoing something that Democrats did." He argued that the Republican health care bill

Most illegal immigrants who pay taxes have stolen someone else’s legal identity, and the IRS doesn’t do a very good job of letting those American citizens and legal immigrants know they’re being impersonated, the tax agency’s inspector general said in a new report released Thursday. The theft creates major problems for the American citizens and legal foreign workers whose identities are stolen, and who have to deal with explaining money they never earned. But the IRS only manages to identify half of the potentially 1.4 million people likely affected by the fraud in 2015, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax

The deadly collision between a U.S. destroyer and a container ship June 17 took place while the freighter was on autopilot, according to Navy officials. The Philippines-flagged cargo ship ACX Crystal was under control of a computerized navigation system that was steering and guiding the container vessel, according to officials familiar with preliminary results of an ongoing Navy investigation. Investigators so far found no evidence the collision was deliberate. Nevertheless, an accident during computerized navigation raises the possibility the container ship´s computer system could have been hacked and the ship deliberately steered into the USS Fitzgerald, an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer.

President Donald Trump has said he will pursue legislation that would bar immigrants from being eligible for welfare for at least five years. At a rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, last night he said ´the time has come´ for ´new immigration rules´ that would require those seeking admission to the country to be able to support themselves financially and would bar the use of welfare for a period of at least five years. He said his administration would be ´putting in legislation to that effect very shortly.´ It is unclear, however, how Trump´s proposal would change the current situation.
