Dem Looziana Boyz Are Helping the Nawlin’s Brand!

The Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) has just recently released (Yeppers, something about a storm coming clouded my mind and I didn’t post on it then.) their Third Annual report on the Corrupt Members of Congress.

Good old brothers Dollar Bill and Sinnator Davy have stepped up to the plate and proudly represent that Nawlin’s Brand.

Brother Bill, Brother Dave… I would so very much like, from the depths of my Bohemian soul, standing here at the Pulpit, the Holy Pulpit of the Church of the Light That Is New Orleans, to say that the two of you have done so much for the Gret Stet by your actions ably representing us up in the District to embark upon a great mission for all of us parishoners here.

We humbly ask in the name of the Church for you two Wise Men to attempt a journey of thousands of miles and many, many years, in search of the Holy Elixir of Crustal Rebound that shall save the Gret Stet from a watery grave. We also please beg your Holy selves to take our Wise Man C. Ray with you.

We will also daily pray for you whilst you are on this perilous Journey, even though it might lead to the Depths of Hell.

Have a good trip jerks.

The T-P’s violence report for last weekend.

Either we get some cops, or we’ll just have to do this in a vigilante fashion.

Sinnator Vitter Fucks Up…

Filed under: Crime,Louisiana,New Orleans,Politicians — Tags: , , — Morwen Madrigal @ 7:34 pm

It will not be a shock to my readers that I hate David Vitter. I won’t call him a pervert because many of us have some form of kinkiness (or should have) in the bedroom, but I’ll admit my little “special” things. (Mine are a little more “physical”.)
He fucked up some years ago in an interview: “Thank you for repeating all these vicious rumors that my political enemies are trying to bandy about,” Vitter had responded on the show, adding, apparently mistakenly, that “those rumors are absolutely true,” and continuing,”they really don’t belong in any political campaign and I’ve stated very clearly that they’re lies…”

Thanks to the Flaming Liberal for forcing that admission.

So Davy boy, why don’t you come to visit Momma Morwen and she will put you in nice soft nappies, some mittens and booties, a sweet little bonnet and a cute baby dress with yards and yards of petticoats so you can just be your baby self and not have to deal with your wife Wendy whilst you go Goo-goo and gaa-gaa until I fill your mouth with a passifier.

Sound good Sinnator? You know how to find me.

Here’s the Summary of the Government’s Case.

Oliver Thomas Goes Down…

Filed under: Crime,New Orleans,NOLA Politics — Tags: , , — Morwen Madrigal @ 10:47 pm

Our City Councilperson At-Large is to be arraigned Monday on Federal charges of corruption.

The one time favorite for Mayor in 2010 is now going down in flames. The word is he will enter a guilty plea on this matter and resign from the Council.

Good-bye CROOK! (And yes… I want these ministers who keep showing up to “vouch” for their crooked heroes to be investigated too. Same goes for the Progressive Democrats and the Black Organizaton for Leadership Development *BOLD*)

Who are the other pieces of criminal trash to be taken out of our City government…. Hmmmm…. ?

Night Out Against Crime…

Filed under: Crime,New Orleans,Racism — Tags: , , — Morwen Madrigal @ 12:29 am

Tonight was the Night Out Against Crime in the Mid-City, and b.rox had this to say about the event.

I was writing a comment to his Blog, and then realized that my comment was really a post about the problem of unbridled crime and how I see it in New Orleans. I decided that here is where it belongs.
Here’s what I wrote:

We ARE on our own in this aspect of the City’s rebuilding.

I’m looking forward to getting back into our place in Gentilly, but I do know the neighborhood will be less than 10% re-populated by then. This is not a welcome scenario as our neighborhood pre-Flood was probably the safest area outside of the Isle of Denial, (in truth, it was…), but no longer does that hold true. I see the incursions of those who hold nothing decent or Sacred. To those whom Life means nothing outside of their warrior games.

We are putting in security cameras and automatic gates. We have now opted to go with shatter-proof glass in the windows for both storms and thugs. Our fences, both property and security, will be very hard to deal with if bad creatures decide to break into one of the few lit houses around.

There will be an arsenal at the house: shotguns, rifles, and two pistols. Both of us, and some of our upcoming tenants, are crack shots trained by the military. Most of us have been hurt by these thugs before.

When the sensors are tripped, the lights will blaze, and whilst the aggressors are blinded, the hailstorm begins.

When the NOPD shows up days later (’cause it will take them that longer to find our neighborhood), they’d better be carrying body-bags, because we will have done their J.O.B..

I have seen the swarms as they roam the Marigny and Bywater… seen the same in the 7th Ward. Watched them set up their traps on the edges of the Quarter and the Treme. (I’m not seen as I can walk the shadows.) These conditions cannot be allowed to stand as it is nothing more than preying upon innocents that probably have nothing to do with the cause of the horror.

Social failures and situations cannot excuse these kinds of actions. Many of us who are trying to rebuild in my roaming areas are poor, or at best, Middle-Class. We do not avail ourselves of the barbaric solutions they have chosen in order to correct their or our problems. We are not responsible for the lack of teachings about Human Dignity and Decency… how we function as a group in order to survive the task of living in this World. Those who’s job it was to instill these lessons have totally failed in their task as concerns their folk.

Part of this was the failure of Society, partly the bullshit that came from Racist attitudes (on both sides) and the indifference to our Constitutional mandate to provide for all in Equality. Much came from the indifference of family groups to teach the basic lessons of Humanity when living in a polyglot Culture.

Many of the possible/probable victims in the Future/Past had nothing to do with these failures. Many of us have tried to help eliminate these problems, but all too often we are destroyed, not those who created the situation. (And here in NOLA, we are being left to our own devices when it comes to this scenario.)

I will stand on this issue and the performance of my duties to neighborhood and friends. Same goes for many folk here. Our city’s rebuilding is up to us who ARE rebuilding our homes and lives. Those who would stop or hinder our efforts to save New Orleans must be stopped, one way or another.

The corporations, the rich, the privileged…. they can afford Blackwater to protect their worthless moneyed asses. We common folk must defend ourselves against the horde, and in doing so we save our homeplace and the legacy of place.

New Orleans exists to train the Faithful… and the faithful believe in the importance and Sacredness of this most unique city and Her people. It’s our job to protect Her.

Like I’ve stated before, I believe in St. Joan, and we are her city and people.

Take Our DA Down…

Filed under: Crime,New Orleans,NOLA Politics — Tags: , , — Morwen Madrigal @ 9:36 pm



New Orleans citizens, fed up with the resurgence of violent crime in their city, will stage a protest in front of the Cabildo on Jackson Square on Monday, July 16 at 6 a.m. to demand the resignation of District Attorney Eddie Jordan.

Although every component of the city’s criminal justice system has been in disarray since Hurricane Katrina, the district attorney’s office is widely seen as the biggest obstacle to reform because of its pattern of not pursuing charges.

In just the past two weeks, the D.A.’s office has dropped murder charges against suspects in two high-profile murder cases:  that of Dinerral Shavers, gunned down in his car, and last summer’s quintuple murder in Central City.  In both cases, the D.A.’s office cited lack of witnesses as the reason for the dismissals.  However, in the Shavers case, there were other witnesses and evidence, inexplicably not used; and in the Central City murders, New Orleans police were able to locate the supposedly un-findable witness within a matter of hours of learning about the dismissal.

These incidents come on the heels of a protest march in January, in which 5000 New Orleanians took to the streets to demand that city officials address the rampant violent that had taken over the city.  Notably, although mayor Ray Nagin and Superintendent of Police Warren Riley attended, Mr. Jordan did not.  At that time, Mr. Jordan claimed a 92% conviction rate, although he declined to provide statistics on the number of cases he chooses not to pursue, raising questions as to the validity of the 92% figure he provided.

In the past, Mr. Jordan has shown disdain for anyone questioning the actions of his agency.  Most notably, he stormed out of an Nightline interview with ABC’s Brian Ross when Ross pressed him about whether his office had performed as it should ( ).

It appears that Mr. Jordan has lost the confidence not only of the citizenry, but of his fellow politicians as well.  Mayor Nagin released a statement last week condemning the D.A.’s office for its “a disturbing pattern in which the DA dismisses charges without securing assistance from NOPD or any other entity in the criminal justice system.”
