  • WHAT'S ON THE POLICE CHIEF'S CELL PHONE?

    WHAT'S ON THE POLICE CHIEF'S CELL PHONE? The mystery surrounding former Baton Rouge Police Chief Dewayne White's cell phone just took another turn, with the release of the police report relating to its disappearance to the local news media.  White, who has said he did not have a city-parish cell phone, then said he had one but it was lost or stolen, finally turned it over to his attorney last week.  You can read more about who the chief was talking to and what police say the phone was being used for at the link below.

Baton Rouge Police Chief Dewayne White was fired from his job amid applause from an audience that included dozens of members of the Baton Rouge Police force after he made an hour-long attack on Mayor Kip Holden and his administration.  White requested a public hearing to dispute recommendations for his dismissal and afterwards was called a "master of deception" by Holden, who said he could no longer allow White to divide the community with his actions.  Read more at the link below.

Marco Rubio's Drinking Problem

The good news for Florida Senator Marco Rubio, who delivered the Republican response to the President's State of the Union address, is that the internet has exploded with photos, video and jokes about his ill-timed drink of water right in the middle of giving the speech that was supposed to launch his 2016 Presidential campaign.  Admittedly, people who never would have given him a second thought are still talking about him.  However, many are saying he has gone the way of Bobby Jindal, whose national debut turned out to be a flop which still haunts him.  Read what the Twitterverse is saying about him at the link below. 
We're number one -- almost!  According to the conservative Tax Foundation's annual breakdown of state and local sales tax rates, Louisiana ranks third in the nation for the highest combined sales tax burden, behind only Tennessee and Arizona.  But if Governor Bobby Jindal gets his way, Louisiana will zoom to number one in the nation, with a combined  10.65 percent, according to the plan currently being presented to legislators for consideration in the upcoming legislative session.  You can see how Louisiana ranks in comparison to neighboring states, where consumers are likely to drift, in the Tax Foundation's report:
The state Republican Party has spent $50,000 on efforts to fight a potential recall of House Speaker Chuck Kleckley of Lake Charles, who is a target of teachers for his support of Governor Bobby Jindal's education package in the recent legislative session.  The Party reported expenditures, including TV spots, that have been run in support of Kleckley and says more spending to help him fight the recall effort against him and the Governor are inevitable. 
Governor Bobby Jindal's veto of funding for a correction facility in Pineville and deep cuts to the state hospital there have left Central Louisiana Republicans fuming.  Republican Representative Chris Hazel of Ball said, "He spends money like a drunken sailor on things that he wants, but cuts things that provide services to the community."  Hazel said Jindal has been traveling the country promoting himself but "he dislikes Louisianans; he dislikes Louisiana."  Representative Robert Johnson of Marksville said, "I think this Governor is mean-spirited and vindictive."  It is estimated that Central Louisiana will lose 300 jobs as a result of Jindal's cuts. 

 

Governor Bobby Jindal announced the resignation of longtime Revenue Secretary Cynthia Bridges late Friday after news broke that she expanded an alternative fuel tax break which the Governor promptly halted.  Bridges has served 12 years as Revenue Secretary, under three Governors.  The announcement comes on the heels of Jindal slashing the budgets of political rivals Treasury Secretary John Kennedy and Lt. Governor Jay Dardenne. Also this week, Jindal announcement vetoes on several bills passed by legislators who had opposed some of the Governor's education package bills, with one legislator stripped of his title as vice chairman of a legislative committee.  

 Following years of revelations about devious acts by priests and the Vatican, be it sexual exploits or sinister financial deals, the Catholic hierarchy in Rome has decided to fight back by attacking nuns.  In fact, the Holy Sea has focused on U.S. Nuns as its target in attempting to purge open thought from some women scholars who are well known and respected in an organization representing over 80% of American Nuns from a variety of holy orders.  Often whispered but rarely discussed by the vast majority of Louisiana Catholics, this attitude and moves by the church to become more political and partisan leave many worshipers wondering if this is the church in which they were raised.  CNN reports on a Vatican out to silence the word of its nuns.  
 There is a smug elitism demonstrated by a few politicians, whose families earlier sought a better life in the U.S., when discussing the plight of new American immigrant populations.  The liberties and freedoms that immigrants have enjoyed throughout our history goes forgotten by a few of the Republican elite as they venture to Tea Party states hoping to enhance their attractiveness as right wing Vice Presidential contenders.  Take Mark Rubio, for instance, who would deny children basic rights to pursue their education and live healthy lives as future tax paying citizens, much as his family was allowed.  Marc Rubio touts that being a Cuban exilie is his claim to legitimate immigrant status, but as pointed out by the Washington Post, his family came to Miami in 1956 and sought a green card to enjoy the benefits of America, far earlier than 1959, when most would agree that the Rubio family was exiled.  So what is in the mindset of a Rubio or Jindal who, allowed to preach the gospel of the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights, now turn their back on many of their own kind, the kind in the history of most all of us, immigrants, who made this country great?

A few weeks ago, Public Service Commissioner Jimmy Field, 72, was planning to seek his third six-year term, but abruptly made calls and announced Friday that he will not run.  Rumors had been flying that Field would face opposition from Department of Natural Resources Secretary Scott Angelle, which would shift control of the district from the Baton Rouge area to the Lafayette region.  Read why Field decided not to run at the link below.

The Baton Rouge Metro Council led by Mayor Pro-Tem Mike Walker, shown here, melted down last night over a dispute over how to spend the remaining money of discretionary funds the Council took control of from Mayor Kip Holden for 2012.  After blowing through most of the funding in only four months, the Council is now looking to the administration to find additional funds.  Councilman Smokey Bourgeois said he regretted that the council spent the previous $607,850 from the discretionary account so quickly.  “The year is far from over and we should be a little more prudent at least with the rest of the money,” he said. “I have regrets about what we did in the past. Dropping $600,000 in that amount of time is kind of amazing.”

The cover story in this week's Independent out of Lafayette spells out how Governor Bobby Jindal's "fuzzy math" has failed Louisiana.  Writer Jeremy Alford details how Jindal rolled back taxes that voters had approved, funded legislator's pet projects and squandered Louisiana's $1 billion budget surplus he inherited from Governor Kathleen Blanco.  Along the way, he raised salaries in the executive branch to an all-time high and concentrated on championing laws against online sex predators while the state's finances collapsed around him.  Read it all at the link below.

Flanked by law enforcement from across the parish, Baton Rouge Mayor Kip Holden kicked off a new crime fighting initiative that has been used in other cities to reduce violent crime by as much at 50%.  Holden was joined by D.A. Hillar Moore, Sheriff Sid Gautreaux and area law enforcement agencies to announce the Baton Rouge Area Violence Elimination (BRAVE) Project.  The group has been working together for some time to secure funding and set up the program, which will be run by Baton Rouge Police Sgt. Herber Anny and housed in the Mayor's Office. 

Efforts to shorten Louisiana's 14-hour Election Day failed in the Senate Committee after a bill cutting one hour off of the day passed the House.  Louisiana's election day is the second longest in the nation.  Secretary of State Tom Schedler sought the change, while the Professional Firefighters Association and the AFL-CIO argued that it would make it harder for those who work shifts to vote.   


The Pelican Republic debuts as a compilation of diverse viewpoints from different places and ideologies.  You may find that The Boiling Frog frets over societal values while The Purple Veil delves into personalities; Politique Deux Centimes digs around Acadiana while Anonymous Rex keeps Louisiana in the DC picture and The Lively Pelican weighs in with more blabber from the Crescent City region.
