    Orleans Parish was deemed the most-murderous county in the United States, based on a study of per-capita homicide rates spanning most of the past decade. The ignominious honor was bestowed upon New Orleans in a report posted on law enforcement website, which looked at nationwide data from the seven-year period between 2009-15. The study determined New Orleans' rate of 43 homicides per 100,000 people was the highest of any county, independent city or district during the sampled period, exceeding the rates recorded in such murder hotspots as Chicago's Cook County, Baltimore, St. Louis and Washington D.C., among others.

    1) Why Didn't Louisiana Follow it's Emergency Plan? Why isn't anyone talking about this? 2) Why hasn't anyone mentioned that a Pre-Requisite for a Federal Response BY LAW is that State Law is Executed and the Emergency Plan is Executed FIRST? 3) Why did the Governor abandon the City of New Orleans for the Safety of Baton Rouge, before the Plan was Executed? 4) Why, when the federal Government was acting in accordance with the Stafford Act, did the State of Louisiana, by its Governors acts, delay making requests when being told this storm was going to hit? 5) Why...

The wall of skepticism began crumbling when Henderson revealed that he, and most members of his group, were former prison inmates determined to unleash the power of a virtually forgotten voting...

    Monitor the polls! Check the count! We certainly know the DEMOCRATS are serious about vote fraud. (See below.)   The GOP had better get very serious very soon. There is no greater threat to its power. There is no greater threat to our freedoms.     For aliens to obtain citizenship, federal regulations require that their application be accompanied by a complete set of determine if the applicant has a criminal or arrest record...It was in this area that Mr. Gore's pressure caused the biggest breakdown...   In the end, the White House got their one million voters...
