The four men are being charged with second degree robbery in connection to the beating of two Boston tourists Saturday night on Bienville Street. One of the victims is still listed in critical condition. Police said the attack was reported before 9 p.m. in...

    The group Take 'Em Down NOLA claims New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu paid a private security firm $750,000 to spy on the organization. Its members held a press conference in front of City Hall on Friday to address what the group calls the city's "unauthorized contract" with the Trident Response Group of Dallas... {snip} Suber said Take 'Em Down NOLA meetings are public, so the city "certainly could have sent spies" to these events as well to monitor their actions. He also questioned why the city would pay this group for surveillance work if the city claims to have resources available...

    The New Orleans Police Department dedicated more than 200 officers and 8,600 man-hours to keep the peace at three Confederate monuments as the city removed them last month, city records show. The cash-strapped city spent more than $173,000 on paying officers deployed to protests and removal operations at the Jefferson Davis, P.G.T. Beauregard and Robert E. Lee monuments, including $112,000 in time-and-a-half overtime pay that went to 178 officers. The city overtime data and expenses were provided to WWL-TV in response to the station’s public records request for police overtime dedicated to the removal of four monuments starting with the...

    NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - There's a new push to have more monuments removed in New Orleans, including the French Quarter's iconic Andrew Jackson statue. The group Take Em Down Nola says the removal of four statues is not enough. "We're issuing an invitation to the mayor to finish the job. He has already begun the job, and we want him to finish the job," said Malcolm Suber, Take Em Down NOLA spokesman. "What we would like to see in their place is people who stood for people and liberation. For instance, we think since Harriet Tubman is going to...

    It is the “state of the city’, not the “look” of the city that needs a good mayor’s attention. Landrieu is obviously too engrossed in his liberal subjectivism to garner this simple, but profound truth With a long heritage of Spanish, French and other influences New Orleans has a unique place in the history of the nation.

    A New Orleans school principal has been "removed from campus" after a photo emerged showing him standing at the Robert E. Lee statue in front of a Confederate flag. Crescent Leadership Academy superintendent Tracy Bennett-Joseph confirmed Monday (May 22) that Principal Nicholas Dean was removed from campus. She said the school's management was investigating. "With the recent events in the city it is important that this matter is thoroughly reviewed," she said. Dean said he did go to the monument Thursday evening to take photos as rumors circulated of the statue's imminent removal. Mayor Mitch Landrieu had the statue of...

    “The cultural and economic and the spiritual loss to this city for having those statues up that have run people out of the city,” Landrieu claimed. “The great migration that sent some of our best and brightest to places across the country that we don’t have the benefit of has been incredible.”

    True to his word, New Orleans mayor Mitch Landrieu ordered the city’s monument to Jefferson Davis taken down this week.  P.G.T.  Beauregard and Robert E. Lee are next in line. But if this column’s title sounds like shameless click-bait, please note the pic at the end of this article which was taken recently at the opening ceremonies of the New Orleans Jazz Fest.  See the smiling man with the neck-tag sandwiched between smiling New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu and smiling former New Orleans Senator Mary Landrieu? That’s Jose Ramon Cabanas, the KGB-trained “ambassador” to the U.S.  from the mass-murdering, terror-sponsoring...

    I am NOT in favor of removing historic monuments. I especially think it is stupid to take down the Robert E. Lee statue at Lee Circle, a New Orleans landmark. Nevertheless, what gripes me most about the issue is its nonsensical nature on both sides. I find it incredibly disappointing that the mayor of New Orleans, in the midst of all the challenges and problems New Orleans faces, chose this issue to be his legacy. And make no mistake: this will be his legacy. He has no other accomplishments or achievements of note in his 8 years in office.

    Six boys were arrested on an unseasonably warm day in New Orleans Chinatown in October 1910. The alleged ringleader of the group was Henry Smith, a 15-year-old from Lafayette Street who had been in trouble with the law before. Among his alleged accomplices was a 9-year-old who lived in the neighborhood where the crime occurred: Louis Armstrong. That incident was lost to history until I unearthed it several years ago. It was an episode perhaps alluded to in contemporary media coverage of Armstrong's more famous arrest for firing a gun on New Year's Eve in 1912; a crime brief about...

    “Nothing good happens after midnight.” Certainly, this is true today in New Orleans under the leadership of egomaniacal Mayor Mitch Landrieu. It is quite ironic that the liberal Democrat Mayor of New Orleans, Mitch Landrieu, is trying to erase uncomfortable parts of the city’s rich history while simultaneously preparing to celebrate the tri-centennial next year. A world-renowned city known for priceless architecture and monuments is becoming less interesting, all because of Landrieu’s insatiable political aspirations. The march toward political correctness began early Monday morning at 1:30 a.m. as masked men in unmarked vehicles with no license plates removed the Liberty...

    New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu cannot stomach the sight of Robert E. Lee in his city.  So one of the city’s most famous landmarks, the statue in Lee Circle in downtown New Orleans, will soon be toppled.  Mayor Landrieu refers to the towering Lee statue as an “aberration.” Historic statues of Jefferson Davis and Confederate General PGT Beauregard are also slated for imminent disgrace and demolition.  Mayor Landrieu first gave vent to his anti-Confederate-monument fetish back in 2015, declaring the monuments “public nuisances” which necessitated prompt removal.  The majority black city-council voted 6-to-1 in his favor for removal.  (Meanwhile the city’s...

    NEW ORLEANS -- New Orleans began the process of taking down Confederate statutes early Monday with the removal of the monument to the Battle at Liberty Place. The city became the latest Southern body to divorce itself from what some say are symbols of racism and intolerance but which opponents say are historic.

    Years of Democratic leadership abetted by a sycophantic media have done enormous damage to New Orleans When you read about the worst cities in the United States you’ll find that they all share a common characteristic: each has been under Democratic leadership for decades. Most of you have read horror stories about some of these cities; Detroit, Cleveland, Birmingham, St. Louis, and New Orleans. In many ways, the deterioration of these cities is a microcosm of what’s gone wrong with our nation. As the 1970s drew to a close, I decided to move to New Orleans. Media at that time...

    Two 12-year-old boys were arrested Saturday night after one of them pulled a gun on two victims during an attempted armed robbery in the Garden District, according to New Orleans police. In a preliminary report, the Police Department said the juveniles approached a 48-year-old woman and a 31-year-old man at Chestnut and Philip streets about 8:45 p.m. They asked the two for a dollar, police said. When the victims refused, one of the boys produced a gun and made the man get on his knees, police said. The man complied, and the two fled. The NOPD said both boys were...
