Joining governors from several other states, Louisiana Gov.  Bobby Jindal has issued an Executive Order blocking Syrian refugees from entering the state. This is in response to Friday's attack by Islamic militants on several targets in Paris.

With this order,  Jindal joins governors from Texas, Michigan and Alabama, who have acted similarly in blocking the flow of refugees into their states.

Is Jay Dardenne's Criticism of Bobby Jindal's Use of State Police Hypocritical???

Louisiana Lt. Governor and candidate for the office of Governor in this fall's election, Jay Dardenne, has come out hard against the current officeholder, Bobby Jindal, for his use of Louisiana State Police during his campaign for President.  A piece written by NOLA goes into great detail regarding this issue and Dardenne's criticism of this practice.  However, videos have recently come out that show Dardenne utilizing the same agency during his campaign for the Governor's office.

And, another video shows that Dardenne readily admits that he utilizes the State Police in political events.

Could this be a mere oversight on the part of Dardenne or could this be a case of blatant hypocrisy? You be the judge.

These are Desperate Times for Louisiana Democrats

In what can only be called a sign of desperation and viewed as grasping for straws, the head of the Louisiana Democratic Party, Karen Carter Peterson, used a satirical website in order to promote a false story concerning Gov. Bobby Jindal.  In her defense, she claimed she knew it was satirical all along, but nonetheless, this made her and the Party look foolish.

Jason Dore' with the Louisiana Republican Party had this to say about the fiasco in an email last night:

"It's a good day in Louisiana if the Democrats are focused on anything other than trying to keep children trapped in failing schools.  That seems to be their mission, so if they want to waste more time attacking Republicans for things we didn't do and for saying things we didn't say, that's fine. A brief look at Louisiana's political environment shows that the voters aren't buying what they're selling any more,"

Not to be outdone, one of the stars in the Democratic Party in Louisiana, Ted James, picked up on this same piece and ran with it later in the evening.  He's since deleted it off of his Twitter page, but with the power of screen shots, it has managed to be captured.  Scott McKay of The Hayride has written a piece on this issue, which can be found here.

Folks, this is what it looks like when a political party is in the death throws in the State of Louisiana.  After losing their brightest star, Mary Landrieu, in the last election, the Democrats are desperate for anything to stick against the wall.  Bobby Jindal can be criticized for plenty of things, but this is just ridiculous.

In a rapid response to the SCOTUS decision this morning on the legalization of same sex-marriage, Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, presidential nominee for the Republican Party in the 2016 elections, tweeted out several statements.  It is apparent that Jindal is continuing his crusade for the nomination with his courtship of the religious right and using this issue to bolster his standings within that demographic.
