Boustany Says Democrats’ Misguided Sit-In ‘Misses the Point’

(Washington, DC) – Dr. Charles Boustany released the following statement as House Democrats held a sit-in on the floor of the House of Representatives to protest lack of action on gun control measures after the terrorist attack in Orlando, Florida, earlier this month.

Boustany said: “The Democrats gutted the military, tied the hands of the intelligence community, and deny the murderous nature of radical Islam, but they still blame the Constitution for terrorism. This sit-in shows the Democrats haven’t just missed the point on this issue; they’re not even playing in the same ballpark. Louisiana families have lost their jobs, their healthcare, and now their security is at risk because of the policies of this President and congressional Democrats.

“Why won’t they sit-in to lower healthcare costs, reform the tax code, and get our economy moving again? The people of Louisiana are waiting for an answer.”

Birds of a Feather Flock Together

Last evening, "conservative" Democrat John Bel Edwards appeared at a meeting in St. Tammany Parish with Karen Carter Peterson, state senator and head of the Louisiana Democrat Party.  She is also the same person that stated any criticism of Obama is paramount to racism.

Bel Edwards is no "conservative" Democrat, as evidenced in one of his recent debate performances. He has gone on record stating that he support Obama, supports Planned Parenthood while pretending to be pro-life and supports his Party, in general.

Louisiana doesn't need to fall for another sheep in wolves' clothing.  This guy is a dyed in the wool liberal Democrat, as evidenced by past statements and his "running crew", the likes of Karen Carter Peterson.  As the old saying goes, birds of a feather flock together.

LAGOP Issues Release on John Bel Edwards' Debate Performance

Jason Dore' with the Louisiana Republican Party issued the following email regarding statements made by John Bel Edwards during last night's Governor's debate in New Orleans:

Liberal John Bel Edwards exposed his true liberal self at the WDSU gubernatorial forum last night.

Here are a few of Edwards' greatest hits, for the record:

Liberal John Bel Edwards exposed his true liberal self at the WDSU gubernatorial forum last night.

Here are a few of Edwards' greatest hits, for the record:

"I SUPPORTED THE PRESIDENT." The Louisiana democrats' standard-bearer, Rep. John Bel Edwards, doubled down on his support for the liberal democrat policies of President Obama.

"THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS I AM A DEMOCRAT. I SUPPORTED THE PRESIDENT." The entire quote.

"I BELIEVE WE SHOULD LET THAT PLAY OUT AND LEARN ALL THE FACTS. ONE OF THE FACTS IS PLANNED PARENTHOOD DOES PROVIDE PREVENTATIVE HEALTH SERVICES, CANCER SCREENINGS, BREAST EXAMS, AND OTHER NEEDED HELP SERVICES. THE ONLY THING I WILL SUGGEST IS BEFORE WE CLOSE PLANNED PARENTHOOD DOWN, WE KNOW THEY ARE NOT PROVIDING ABORTIONS IN LOUISIANA..."

In supporting government funding for Planned Parenthood, John Bel Edwards used the abortion industry's often repeated, yet untrue narrative about the nature of the abortion provider's services. The fact is Planned Parenthood is currently building a $4.2 million, 8,000 square foot abortion clinic in New Orleans and does not own nor operate a single mammogram machine in the state of Louisiana.

New Orleans' "mayor", Mitch Landrieu, who has defied a court order to comply with the payment requirements regarding millions in back payments to firefighters, has decided to forgo a house arrest threat and attend out of state functions last week, all the while the city falls further and further into violence.

Per the NOPD Major Offense Log, several violent crimes have occurred during his time away from the city. 

Keep Louisiana Working Executive Director Anthony Ramirez released the following statement:

“Never one to let important city business keep him at home—even with with a public health crisis and crime epidemic—Mayor Landrieu has left the city behind to further his own political ambition.”
 
“Mayor Landrieu has seemingly turned his back on the city, traveling out of state when the city needs him the most. Louisiana cannot afford to have another absent politician with a personal political agenda."

Vitter Again Urges Mayor Landrieu to Focus On Murders, Not Monuments

For Immediate Release
Contact: Luke Bolar

 Vitter responds to Landrieu mass email

(Metairie, La.) – David Vitter today sent a letter to New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu urging him to unite our community by focusing on murders, not monuments. The letter is in response to a racially charged email blast by Mayor Landrieu this week. 

A copy of Vitter’s letter from today is below. 

  

September 4, 2015

The Honorable Mitch Landrieu
1300 Perdido Street
New Orleans, LA 70112

Dear Mitch:

A friend forwarded me your mass email, attached.

Really, Mitch?

I have said many times, and I repeat again, that I think you should unite our community by focusing on murders, not monuments.

114 of our fellow citizens have been murdered in New Orleans already this year.  Lester Johnson was gunned down in his driveway in New Orleans East on Wednesday morning. 

Rather than taking strong, bold action on the out-of-control crime problem, however, you send out a hateful email to create a distraction and play the race card. It attacks and insults not just me, but countless concerned citizens who feel as I do. That's not leadership, it's pure political cynicism.

Wake up, Mitch. The monuments aren't murdering our family members and neighbors. Focus. Lead. Unite. Track down those who are.

Sincerely,

David Vitter

  

A copy of Landrieu's email from September 3rd is below:

"Yesterday, a panel of New Orleans residents on the Vieux Carré Commission took a big step towards removing the Liberty Place monument.

However, at the same time, Senator David Vitter and David Duke, the former Ku Klux Klansman, doubled down on their efforts to keep this monument, fighting to preserve the last vestiges of white supremacy rather than honoring the great diversity that defines us today.

Tell David Vitter and David Duke that this monument has no place in New Orleans.

The history of the Battle of Liberty Place monument goes back to 1874, when a group of radical ex-Confederates launched a coup against the racially-integrated Reconstruction government of Louisiana, forming a militia and storming New Orleans. The mob attacked a force made up of the integrated Metropolitan Police force and state militia and killed police officers and innocent bystanders.

In 1886, private groups erected this monument to honor the members of the White League that were killed in the Battle of Liberty Place — not the police officers or the innocent bystanders.

Why David Vitter and David Duke are defending this monument is beyond me.

Our state has always been a place that honors the lives of law enforcement officers lost in the line of duty. But this monument stands in direct contrast to those ideals.

The ideals represented in this monument never belonged in a city as great as New Orleans, where diversity is our lifeblood. It’s time we chart a future of togetherness, not division.

Sign on now to add your support in removing this monument erected in honor of those who killed police officers.

We have to make our voices heard over the noise of opponents like David Vitter and David Duke.

Let’s start by removing the Liberty Place monument.

Sincerely,

Mitch Landrieu

Thank Goodness This Nut-Job Liberal Was Never Elected President

Former Allied Commander, US General and liberal Democrat, Wesley Clark, had the following to say regarding "radicalized" and "disloyal" Americans and what should be done with them.

I wonder who these "disloyal" Americans would be in this dude's liberal mind????

So, if these people are radicalized, and they don't support the United States, and they're disloyal to the United States as a matter of principle, fine that's their right. It's our right and our obligation to segregate them from the normal community for the duration of the conflict.

I think we're going to have to increasingly get tough on this.

Another Democrat who Feels the First Amendment is Irrelevant

In the latest installment of the ongoing fight in the State of Oregon regarding a couple who owns a bakery that have refused to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian wedding, the state's Bureau of Labor and Industries and the Commissioner, Brad Avakian, have issued a cease and desist order regarding the couple's right to voice their opinion on same-sex marriage.  This is on top of a $135K fine that was issued by the same department.

It's one thing to ruin a family business and bankrupt them financially, but it's entirely another when you deny them freedom of speech.
