The Hill [Washington, DC], by Amie Parnes

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 6/17/2017 9:41:46 AM

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.

Drivers on the road this Fourth of July holiday will see the cheapest gas prices since 2005, according to a GasBuddy report on Tuesday. U.S. consumers will pay an average of $2.21 per gallon at the pump, well under the 10-year average of $3.14, according to GasBuddy, an app that helps its 65 million users find the cheapest gasoline prices in the United States, Canada and Australia. The prices are also expected to be lower than prices seen on New Year´s Day by 12 cents. "So many Americans love to hold onto that myth that gas prices go up for

The wicked witch is back. This time, her name is Nancy Pelosi. The House minority leader was the prime punching bag for Republicans during the Georgia race Jon Ossoff just lost, targeted in a series of ads painting him as her puppet and the epitome of the reviled Washington liberal establishment. Now a rump group in her own party has chimed in, blaming her for a loss that could as easily be credited to a weak candidate who had shallow roots in the district. Nevertheless, the group is calling on her to step down, insisting she’s a liability for the party.

WASHINGTON • The Supreme Court has ruled in a Missouri case that churches have the same right as other charitable groups to seek state money to pay for new playground surfaces and other non-religious needs. The justices on Monday ruled 7-2 in favor of Trinity Lutheran Church of Columbia, Mo. The church sought a grant to put a soft surface on its preschool playground, but was denied any money even though its application was ranked fifth out of 44 submissions. Chief Justice John Roberts said for the court that it "is odious to our Constitution" to exclude the church from the

Kennedy retirement would

Supreme Court Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy is rumored to be poised to announce his retirement and, if it happens, it will trigger a confirmation battle that could make the fight over Neil Gorsuch look like a playground skirmish. That’s because Gorsuch replaced Antonin Scalia, who was a reliable conservative vote. Kennedy, on the other hand, while considered a conservative, has often found himself in the middle, and become the court’s “swing vote.”  Thus, whoever replaces him could very much determine in what direction the court will go. There are a number of areas where Kennedy has not followed the “conservative”

It’s one of the core questions in the debate over minimum wage: Does hiking the pay floor lead businesses to cut hours and jobs? A much-anticipated study released Monday by a team of researchers at the University of Washington is likely to intensify that controversy — just as Los Angeles heads toward its own minimum-wage increase for large businesses,from $10.50 an hour to $12 an hour on July 1. The new study has found that jobs and work hours fell for Seattle’s lowest paid employees after the city raised the minimum wage to $13 last year. The analysis shows that

He lofted it over the hill and sank the attempt off of the roll for birdie. Spieth tossed his club and immediately ran up to his caddy and gave him a chest bump. The hole was the first in Spieth´s playoff against Daniel Berger. Spieth joined Tiger Woods as the second player to have at least 10 wins on the PGA Tour before turning 24-years-old. Spieth

BAHAWALPUR, Pakistan — An overturned oil tanker burst into flames in Pakistan on Sunday, killing 153 people who had rushed to the scene of the highway accident to gather leaking fuel, a hospital official said as the death toll continued to rise.

Highway police moved quickly to redirect traffic but couldn´t stop the scores of villagers who raced to collect the fuel, spokesman Imran Shah told a local TV channel.

WASHINGTON - The top Democrat on the U.S. House Intelligence Committee on Sunday criticized the administration of former President Barack Obama for not taking earlier and tougher action against Russia for its alleged hacks aimed at swaying the Nov. 8 election for Donald Trump. "The Obama administration should have done a lot more when it became clear that not only was Russia intervening, but it was being directed at the highest levels of the Kremlin," said Representative Adam Schiff on CNN´s "State of the Union" program. The Obama administration imposed sanctions in December on two Russian intelligence agencies over their

He knocked on the doors of restaurants in Burlington, Vt., where he lived at the time, and asked managers not to offer straws unless patrons asked. He was 9 years old. Today Cress, 15, is one of the

Offshore Wind Turbine May

The carcass of a young humpback whale washed ashore Friday morning in Rhode Island, causing experts to think that a nearby offshore wind turbine may be to blame. Rescue workers and two veterinarians from a nearby aquarium collected samples from the dead whale, and suspect that the nearby Block Island offshore wind farm could be responsible for the whale’s death. Noise from the turbine allegedly hampers the sonar that whales use to navigate and communicate. “If necropsy shows that a perfectly healthy whale beached itself where offshore wind turbines do exist, they need to really check what kind of sound these

Former national security adviser and UN ambassador Susan Rice refuses to go quietly into retirement, even though she remains one of the most controversial figures of the Obama Administration. Now, thanks to a glowing profile in New York Magazine, we know that despite Susan Rice’s very public shortcomings (whatever happened to that dastardly filmmaker who spurred violence across the Middle East, anyway?), she believes any criticism of her tenure is at least partly the result of racism and sexism.

I’ve been talking about the importance of protecting against voting-machine hacks since 2002. And now, finally, people are starting to take me seriously. The move to paperless voting started in response to the Florida “hanging chad” fiasco in the 2000 presidential election. Some people (like me) thought this was a mistake, but such concerns were often dismissed. Now, apparently, you can’t be paranoid enough. As Politico’s Bob King noted, while 10 years ago critics of paperless voting were called paranoid, now both parties are worried. It remains true that there is no actual evidence that a single vote was changed by hackers

The incident happened at the Qwik Chick takeout stand next to U.S. Highway 1 in Baxley, Georgia just after 3pm on Thursday, reported WTOC. The couple, identified as Nathaniel Eric Smith and Latasha M.
