Looks Like the Northern Border is Just as Dangerous as the Southern

Americans are well aware and focused on the need to protect our Southern border. But little thought has been given to the need to protect the border with Canada.

Their citizens are seen as educated, polite, and mostly English-speaking. Their poorest citizens aren't marching defiantly toward our border in a giant invasion of “caravans" aided and abetted by their national government. But that doesn't mean the border to our north can't pose its own specific type of deadly risk.

An enormous, robust, and illegal opioid drug supply is streaming across our border with Canada, killing and poisoning tens of thousands of our citizens each year. Just last month, Canadian authorities busted a huge smuggling ring headquartered in Calgary that was producing an astonishing amount of counterfeit pharmaceutical drugs — 120,000 pills a day. That’s nearly 160 million pills a year from just one source!

Iberia Parish is Preparing to Shove It In Us Folks

file-2.jpeg

A Notice of Public Meeting was issued by the Iberia Parish Council yesterday in regards to a meeting scheduled to take place for levying additional millages for the parish.  The meeting, scheduled for May 9, 2018, intends to "consider levying additional or increased millage rates without further voter approval."  In essence, we are looking at getting stuck with more taxes, regardless of what the citizens of Iberia Parish think.

First thing that came to mind when I read this crap was that money pit called the "Isle of Iberia" formally named "Cajun RVera."  The Parish, in their infinite wisdom, decided to go full idiot and support the building of an RV park, trying to live up to the likes of Cajun Palms.  However, what turned out to be nothing more than a pipe dream and probably filled up a few pockets, we were stuck with millions in debt.

It's now more apparent than ever to get rid of the entire Council and put into place fiscally educated representation.  These clowns that we have running this Parish is intent on having more of an exodus to cities like Broussard and Youngsville.

What You Won't Hear About Alton Sterling Today

Today, Attorney General Jeff Landry declined prosecution of officers that were involved in the 2016 shooting of Alton Sterling outside of a business on the north side of the city.  Throughout the coming days, you'll hear the liberal mainstream media drone on and on regarding the shooting with excuses for Landry not pursuing prosecution, such as political motivation.  However, what you won't hear are some of the facts of this case.

First, Sterling had an obscene amount of drugs and alcohol in his system.  From the AG report, the following was found during the autopsy:

A toxicology test (Exhibit C) was conducted during the autopsy and the results indicated Sterling’s chest blood tested positive for the following substances:

-          Ethanol (29 mg/dL)

-          Blood Alcohol Concentrate (BAC 0.029 g/100mL)

-          Benzoylecgonine (130 ng/mL)

-          Cocaine (26 ng/mL)

-          Amphetamine (23 ng/mL)

-          Methamphetamine (280 ng/mL)

-          Delta-9 Carboxy THC (13ng/mL)

-          Delta 9 THC (3.8 ng/mL)

            Additionally, Sterling’s urine tested positive for Opioids, Cocaine, Cannabinoids (THC), Amphetamines, and Fentanyl. 

            The toxicology report indicated that blood levels of 200-600 ng/mL have been associated with methamphetamine abusers who exhibited violent and irrational behavior. Sterling’s blood level for Methamphetamine was (280 ng/mL) which placed him in this category.

            The toxicology of Alton Sterling clearly indicated that he was under the influence of a combination of illegal substances.

Secondly, the report highlights Sterling's extensive history of interactions with law enforcement and a criminal history.  In one particular case, the circumstances are very similar to the facts of the current investigation.

This incident was documented by the Baton Rouge Police Department under item number 09-00054712 and, other than a seven year difference, mirrors the exact incident that occurred on July 5, 2016 in all but the outcome.

On May 29, 2009, Baton Rouge Police Officer Timothy Daigre responded to a call for service at 999 Rosenwald Street, Baton Rouge, LA. The complainant, identified as Anthonia Anderson B/M, DOB: 04/12/1980, reported that earlier in the evening on May 29, 2009, he had been driving and was approached by Alton Sterling who produced a dark colored handgun and pointed it at him and his passenger.

After being given this information Officer Daigre was directed to where Alton Sterling was selling contraband CDs. This location was identified as 1375 Rosenwald Street, the Scotlandville Grocery Store. 

Officer Daigre relocated to this location and observed an individual who matched the description provided by the victim as Alton Sterling. Upon the officers approach Alton Sterling was carrying a milk crate full of music CDs.

The officer asked Alton Sterling if he had any weapons.

Alton Sterling did not answer the officer, and was instructed put the milk crate on the ground and place his hands on the officer’s marked patrol unit. Alton Sterling complied with the officer instructions.

Officer Daigre began to conduct a Terry frisk, a pat down, of Alton Sterling’s outer clothing for officer safety. As Officer Daigre began this frisk, he noticed Alton Sterling removed his left hand from the hood of the marked unit and moved his hand toward his left front pants pocket.

Officer Daigre stopped Sterling from going into the pocket, and told him (Alton Sterling) to keep his hands on the hood of the vehicle. 

At this time, Sterling ignored the officer’s instructions, spun away from where the officer was attempting to conduct his frisk, and tried to flee from the officer. Officer Daigre grabbed Sterling by the shirt and was able to push him to the ground. During this process, he was giving loud verbal instructions to Sterling to stop resisting.

Once on the ground, Officer Daigre attempted to gain positive control of Alton Sterling, giving him instructions to stop resisting.

During his attempt to restrain Sterling, the officer was able to use his radio and summon assistance.

As the struggle continued, a black semi-automatic 9mm handgun fell from Alton Sterling’s waistband.

East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Deputy Dain Lewis had heard the officers call for assistance and responded. Upon arrival, Deputy Lewis helped subdue Sterling and his resistance was brought to an end.

Alton Sterling was subsequently arrested for the following charges: 40:966C Possession of a firearm while in possession of a Controlled Dangerous Substance, to wit: Marijuana; 14:37 Aggravated Assault; 14:108 resisting arrest; and 14:69.1 Possession of a stolen firearm.

What is The Reasoning Behind Jack Montoucet Moving the LDWF Offices???

 Photo source: LDWF

Photo source: LDWF

Earlier in the month of March, a story started gaining traction that Sec. Jack Montoucet, Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries secretary, was planning to consolidate the offices of the LDWF in New Iberia and Opelousas into a location that was being purchased in Lafayette.  The reason?  Sec. Montoucet has stated that he is unable to expand the location in New Iberia, repairs that are necessary for both locations and the need for a centralized location outside of Baton Rouge. 

As a result of the decision to close both locations, parish and city leaders from both areas met with Sec. Montoucet to discuss their concerns.  Among those in attendance was Port of Iberia Director and former State Senator, Craig Romero.  Romero offered property within the Port of Iberia to the LDWF in order to keep the department within Iberia Parish, which was done free of charge. This was offered as a result of the assistance the State of Louisiana has given the Port of Iberia with development costs for many years in the past. The Port felt it was time to repay for all favors in the past. Sec. Montoucet did not respond to that offer.  Additionally, the state owns vacant property in New Iberia that was being used for vocational training.  The campus is large enough to house the operations that are needed in Iberia Parish and can easily meet the needs that Montoucet has stated he requires.

The problem with this whole issue is that, on an almost daily basis, we are reminded by Gov. "Honor Code" that the state is broke.  The property in Lafayette is valued at $7 million dollars and is located in the heart of the city.  Does anyone with a modicum of intelligence think that this is a good idea?  How is it efficient to send boats from Lafayette to respond to calls in Loreauville, Jeanerette or areas in the eastern part of Iberia Parish.  How is it safe to be pulling boats through Lafayette to Dulles Drive?  Some of these boats are over 40 feet long and require a permit to be moved.  How are we going to pay for this location?  Oh, I think I know how.  Raise "fees".

Montoucet has floated the time honored tradition here in Louisiana of raising fees, this time on the backs of hunters and fishermen in the Sportsman's Paradise.  Per this piece from The Advocate, the following is being proposed:

License fees for basic fishing would rise by 42 percent and 33 percent for hunters under a proposal outlined Monday by the secretary for the state Department of Wildlife and Fisheries.

Jack Montoucet, a former state legislator who leads the agency, said the increases are needed to offset a wide range of financial problems, including the loss of $65 million since 2009 because of state budget problems.

This seems like nothing more than another attempt to spend money on the backs of the taxpayers of the State of Louisiana.  When are we going to stop letting these "public servants" shove it to us on a consistent basis. 

Similar to the "Drain the Swamp" campaign that is trending regarding Washington, D.C., we need to "Drain the Stick" here in Louisiana.

Farrakhan and His Democratic Friends, Including Obama

Why is it that only conservative news outlets are pointing out the relationship between several prominent Democrat congressmen and Louis Farrakhan?  If any Republican was caught being in the same room with the likes of David Duke, who spouts similar crap as Farrakhan, this would be plastered over every means of media in America.

If you work in the oil and gas industry and continue to support both JBE and the Democrat Party, then you need to have your head examined.  I give you the latest from the "Honorable One".  It wasn't enough to go after the oil and gas industry last year regarding coastal erosion.  He's now determined it's time to extort them even more.

The self righteous that couldn't bring themselves to vote for a true conservative in Vitter, congrats.  This crap is all your fault and when he's done in another year or two, this state will be poorer yet.
