Good reason for Mary Landrieu to be concerned

Prospects that three term Democrat Senator Mary Landrieu will return to the US Senate to represent Louisiana for a fourth term are looking increasingly bleak. Senator Landrieu has good reason to be concerned.

Demand punishment of government corruption

Often times in America, it seems as if there is no light at the end of the tunnel concerning national affairs. In particular, America is inundated with the crimes of those who represent and serve “We the People,” and often the American people are under the impression that criminal representatives suffer no consequence. But every once in a while, America can see how the judicial system is at work and what its righteous effects are on a corrupt system.

Hitting the Global Warming Hoax Head On

Hitting the Global Warming Hoax Head On

We need more Republicans like Lenar Whitney of Louisiana who is running for Congress who will hit the liberal narratives head-on. Instead of wringing their hands about the “problem” (and lending credence to the Left’s propaganda), Republicans need to be debunking garbage like the myth of anthropogenic global warming the way Lenar Whitney did in this video.

Desperate to deter the rest of the nation from following Jindal’s leadership in teacher union-hated alternative education tools, the Department of Justice (DOJ), led by Attorney General Eric Holder and his boss Barack Obama, last August filed a lawsuit against Louisiana’s school voucher program on questionable grounds. Holder and Obama argue that too many poor minorities are receiving a good education by escaping failing schools.

Federal Govt Interferes With State Education Efforts

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal has been working hard to raise achievement levels for students in his state by expanding choices in the academic marketplace. Standing in Jindal’s way? The U.S. Department of Justice — which filed a lawsuit last month seeking to block Louisiana’s recently expanded choice program on the grounds it might increase “racial identifiability” at failing, government-run schools.

Why two black Louisiana Republicans switched parties

Why two black Louisiana Republicans switched parties

Anyone who doubts that the Republican Party can attract black voters need only look south to Louisiana.During @Large — a conference in Baton Rouge in May aimed at attracting black conservatives — a black Democrat in the Louisiana Legislature, Elbert Guillory, announced that he was switching political parties and becoming a Republican. Less than two weeks later, just up the road in Central City, La., a black Democrat city councilman made the same announcement. The mystery is why this is not happening more often.

Ed Voucher Program Moving Forward in Louisiana

Ed Voucher Program Moving Forward in Louisiana

Louisiana parents and students who are ambitious to switch out of failing public schools have until June 30 to become part of history. That is the cut-off date for applications to be submitted to the state education department for scholarship funds that can be used to cover the full cost of private school tuition. In May, the state lawmakers approved what is arguably the most audacious and far reaching school voucher program in the entire country at the behest of Gov. Bobby Jindal.
