Sally Quinn and the FBI!

Sally Quinn, noted journalist and news anchor, as well as the widow of Washington Post editor Ben Bradley, was a guest on my nationally syndicated radio program this last weekend. She has a fascinating book out called “Finding Magic-A Spiritual Memoir.” I stayed up late one evening reading it, and would highly recommend the book, where she talks of life in Washington, the news business and the magic she finds in religion and the occult. One of her best stories is about an incident where the FBI came to interview her and promised to keep her comments confidential. Her response? “I burst out laughing, Are you kidding?” I certainly have the same distrust of the FBI. You can find out more of her book by Clicking Here.

THE BETRAYAL ON JUSTICE IN LOUISIANA!

We live our daily lives, and are glad when the bad guys are arrested and put in jail. But sometimes, prosecutors mess up. By and large, we have good prosecutors at both the state and federal level. But there are bad eggs in every batch. A fellow named John Thompson quietly died last week. And he was the victim of one of the worst cases of prosecutorial misconduct that ever happened in America. And it never should’ve happened. Yet nothing, nothing will happen to those who falsely accused and then put this man in jail for 18 years. Read my new column now posted and see what you think. This is a real American tragedy. You can read it now by Clicking on the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here.

Check local listings for times and stations. We will see you on the radio.

Tom Petty not backing down!

I’ve been a big Tom Petty musical fan for many years. He is one of America’s great songwriters, and, sadly, he died last week at the young age of 66. My favorite Petty rendition is his song “I Won’t Back Down.” The song is quite personal to me, because I relate it to my run in with the Justice Department, and the prosecutorial misconduct that has been allowed to fester in the New Orleans U.S. Attorney’s office. I talk about such misconduct in my new column posted this week. And I wrote about similar misconduct, in fact, outright criminal activity by prosecutors, in my book Justice Denied. Take a listen to Petty’s anthem for justice in America.

TOO BUSY FOR NATIONAL ANTHEM!

Have you weighed in on the “taking a knee” controversy as the Star Spangled Banner is being played at sporting events across the country? Does it really make any real difference if some use our national anthem to protest? Or is this the time and place? I must admit I have some pretty strong views about this issue as well as flying the American Flag. Take a look at my thoughts and see if you agree.

TELL OUR YANKEE FRIENDS TO BUTT OUT!

Some folks up north just can’t seem to stop taking pot shots and the supposedly “backward” South. A few Yankee pundits are even calling for a wall. No, not to keep out Mexicans, but to block off southerners. When will these reprobates just let it go? I write about the north-south tensions in my new column week. Take a look and see what you think. You can read it now by clicking on the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here.

LOUISIANA AND FLORIDA: NIGHT AND DAY ON PROPERTY INSURANCE!

Will the recent storms, the did so much damage in Texas and Florida, cause their insurance rates to go up? What makes the cost of insurance go up in the first place? Shouldn’t these companies be sticking back the money they’re taking in for a rainy day to pay out all the claims? And why does Florida have lower insurance rates then does Louisiana, even though much of Florida is exposed to hurricane damage? All these are questions I look into in this week’s column.

SHOULD YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO DIE?

Americans are extremely protective of their rights. We don’t want government interfering in anything we do. But how about the right to determine just when you shutdown your life? That does when government steps in, and says you have no choice. Is this right? Should you have a choice? Take a look at my column this week on the right to live in the right to die. See what you think. You can read it now by going to the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here.

WHAT TO DO ABOUT RISING FLOOD INSURANCE RATES?

What a month for disasters. Hurricane Harvey caused great devastation in the Houston area as well as parts of Louisiana. And hurricane Irma destruction will take years to repair and recover. And it’s just not hurricanes. There’s a wave of natural disasters in the United States. Wildfires out west, tornadoes in the Panhandle, and flooding from coast-to-coast. States just can’t afford to deal with this problem by themselves. What’s the solution? I talk about it in this week’s column based on years of experience as an insurance regulator. You can read the column now by clicking on the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here.

Radio Weekend Program Schedule!

Wow, what a Radio weekend coming up! We will be following all the natural disasters. Free hurricanes in the gulf, and wildfires raging out west. And how about the immigration fight going on in Washington? What to do with all the children of the illegal immigrants that came in to this country. We will have several guests on to discuss. Finally, there’s a new study out saying that concussions continue to be a major problem, and that experts feel your child should not play competitive sports like football until they’re 18 years old. Any truth to this? We will discuss with Concussion Expert Dr. Sally Fryer Dietz. (www.concussion-therapy.com). So tune in for a lively program.   Check local listings for times and stations. See you on the radio.

 

Huge Police Overreach!

Here is an outrageous example of a police officer going completely out of the bounds of his authority. Alex Wubbels, a nurse at University Hospital in Salt Lake City, was arrested after explaining to police that she couldn’t draw a blood sample from an unconscious person. A Salt Lake City police detective asked for a blood sample. After explaining to the detective that the police needed a warrant, consent from the unconscious patient or that the patient needed to be under arrest before the blood sample could be drawn, she was arrested..  As a lawyer, I can  tell you that Salt Lake City is  going to have a heck of a lawsuit on their hands.  And for good reason.  Check out the video below.

HERE COMES THE CAJUN NAVY!

Houston remains under siege and the rescue operations will go on for weeks. Isn’t it ironic that almost 12 years ago to the day, Hurricane Katrina struck Louisiana and the entire the Gulf Coast. In both storms, one of the saving graces was the Cajun Navy. Large contingents of Louisianans are in Texas right now with their bass boats or whatever they have to offer help. Were lessons learned from Katrina? Maybe not. Check out my thoughts in this week’s column. You can read it now by clicking on the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here.

Time to Change the name “America?”

Why wasn’t our country called Columbia, after Christopher Columbus? He discovered the Americas, right? Columbus might well have had the new world named after him, had it not been for two shortcomings. The first was that Columbus was under the mistaken impression that he had found a new route to Asia and was not aware that America was an entirely new continent. The second was that he never wrote publicly about it so the masses were not aware of his discovery. Right after Chris comes another Italian explorer, Americus Vespuccius. He did write a great deal about the new world and the first map called the new nation America. But did you know that both Columbus and Vespuccius were slave traders? That’s right. So, to be politically correct, what do we do? Check out the cartoon below.

LSU FOOTBALL AND RACE RELATIONS!

Are college football players considered little more than mascots? This seems to be the conclusion of a recent column in the New York Times where the college game his supposedly there to amuse the fans, with no respect for the players. And black football players particularly take it on the chin by the Times article, with specific reference to LSU football. And get this! Louisiana judges get into the mix for longer sentences on black defendants following an LSU upset. I kid you not!   To read more of these over-the-top conclusions, take a look at my new article now posted. You can read it now by Clicking on the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here.

Big Upset on Fight Night!

I don’t know about you, but I’m a big fight fan. And this Saturday night, August 26, is a big fight night out in Las Vegas. Former pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather will come out of retirement to face UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor in a boxing match to determine the super welterweight champion of the world. Some are saying this will be the highest grossing fight in history. Seventy million dollars alone will be bet on this fight. And the odds say Mayweather will win as a big favorite. I don’t think so. McGregor is taller, has a longer reach, is much younger, and not the grandstander that Mayweather is. So get ready for a big upset.

Weekend Radio Schedule!

It’s show time this weekend, and we will be on a major hurricane watch throughout entire Gulf South. What’s Harvey going to do? Severe weather expert Michael Smith will join us to discuss. (www.accuweather.com). And how about gas prices? Huge refineries in the hurricane’s path. Energy expert Wolf Hanschen will be our guest (http://www.peregrine1031.com).

We will see you on the radio.
