Please Support JJ

 It's time for  JJ's annual fund-raising drive.   Thank you very much for your support of Jackson Jambalaya and reading the blog over the years. We've come a long way since we started up in 2007. This blog couldn't have gotten as far as it has without support from the readers. You've donated money, provided tips, and helped when it was needed.

JJ is the leading blog in Mississippi and breaks more than a few news stories. We've exposed public corruption and brought stories to you ignored by the rest of the media.  Your support was invaluable when yours truly had to get arm surgery last September due to a compressed nerve.  Money spent on the Dragon Nuance program was money well-spent as it allowed this website to continue when I couldn't type for six months.

Ben Shapiro: Joe Biden's Economy is a Disaster

 This week, the stock market took a turn into bear territory on the heels of yet another brutal monthly inflation report. With the Federal Reserve considering larger rate hikes in order to tamp down record inflation, the possibility of a near-term recession now looms quite large, despite the feeble protestations of Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen. As former Clinton Treasury Secretary Larry Summers -- the man who predicted President Joe Biden's inflation -- stated, "I think when inflation is as high as it is right now, and unemployment is as low as it is right now, it's almost always been followed, within two years, by recession."

Ben Shapiro: Is Ignoring the Other Side a Winning Strategy for the Left?

 his week, my company, The Daily Wire, premiered a blockbuster new documentary starring Matt Walsh. Titled "What Is A Woman?", the documentary investigates radical gender theory and its peculiar hold on the elites in our society -- and how the insane proposition that men can become women and vice versa has become so well-accepted that even normal Americans now live in fear of questioning it. The film has been the single largest success in the history of The Daily Wire; hundreds of thousands of Americans have subscribed to view it. Yet Rotten Tomatoes, the review aggregator for film and television, has not a single traditional review of the film.

Guest Column: Mass Murders Involving Assault Rifles

 Jackson attorney Jeff Reynolds submitted this guest column.  

 On May 24, 2022, nineteen young children and two teachers were killed in Uvalde, Texas, by a deranged teenager who legally purchased an AR-15 assault rifle only days after his eighteenth birthday. While the AR-15 was purchased legally, this same teenager could not legally purchase or consume alcohol or cigarettes. Why? Because, according to the government, an 18-year-old is not yet mature enough to consume alcohol or cigarettes responsibly. But that same government believes 18-year-olds are mature enough to purchase assault rifles – a weapon of war designed to do one thing: kill many people quickly. So, in America, 18-year-olds are mature enough to own a killing machine but not mature enough to drink a beer.

Sid Salter: A Blank Check

Bill Crawford: Reagan: Isolation Will Never be Acceptable

 On June 6, 1944, Operation Overlord commenced, the U.S. led invasion at Normandy that would ultimately doom Hitler and free Europe. Since that time the U.S. has played a major role in sustaining Europe’s defense and freedom. This role was formalized on April 4, 1949, when the North Atlantic Treaty was signed. The resulting North Atlantic Treaty Organization had three purposes: (1) deterring Soviet expansionism; (2) forbidding the revival of nationalist militarism in Europe through a strong North American presence on the continent; and (3) encouraging European political integration.

Ben Shapiro: The Elitists Who Want to Rule the World

 Klaus Schwab is the head of the World Economic Forum; he founded the organization in 1971. Each year, the WEF hosts a massive conference in Davos, Switzerland, with thousands of world leaders, diplomats and experts on various topics gathering to trade ideas about how best to cooperatively run the world. Lest this characterization be seen as overstating the case, Schwab himself said as much this year in opening the conference: "The future is not just happening. The future is built by us, by a powerful community as you here in this room. We have the means to improve the state of the world. But two conditions are necessary. The first one is that we act all as stakeholders of larger communities, that we serve not only self-interest but we serve the community. That's what we call stakeholder responsibility. And second, that we collaborate."

 This week, a racist mass shooter massacred 10 people and wounded three others at a Buffalo, New York, supermarket. The shooter was a white supremacist; his hate-filled 180-page screed about why he had committed the shooting was replete with neo-Nazi sentiments. According to the shooter, he had to slaughter innocent black Americans in order to prevent the white population of the United States from being crowded out. "We are experiencing an invasion on a level never seen before in history," wrote the perverse murderer. "This is ethnic replacement. This is cultural replacement. This is racial replacement. This is WHITE GENOCIDE."

When I got into the restaurant business over 40 years ago, all I wanted was to open one restaurant. That's it. Just one. I wanted to be an independent restaurant owner so I could wear shorts and t-shirts to work every day. Seriously, that was my goal. It wasn’t about money, or accumulating wealth, or anything other than I love restaurants, and didn’t want to have to wear a suit and tie to work every day. That part has come true, but the one restaurant thing has grown legs.

In the aftermath of a leaked Supreme Court draft majority decision prospectively overruling Roe v. Wade, the Left in the United States has gone into full-fledged panic mode. That outsized panic has manifested as a variety of unconvincing or blatantly immoral arguments: the argument that abortion is a necessary adjunct to women's freedom -- as though contraception doesn't exist, and as though women are never responsible for their own sexual decisions and the consequences thereof; the argument that unless society provides for any number of government programs, abortion should not be prohibited -- as though the solution to lack of universal child care is the death of the child; the argument that conservatives will next attempt to outlaw interracial marriage -- an absurd slander on its face.

They lost 90,000 troops in six weeks. It was a bloodbath. We lost 58,000 over a decade in Vietnam but we're still whining about it."

Every conflict ends with a winner and a loser. There is no shame in losing -- only in not trying.

Polo tried to be pretty in pink today as he smiled his way through his initial appearance in Clinton Municipal Court today.  William Ervin Edwards may have found the proceedings amusing but his fate is anything but funny as Judge Will Purdie denied bond for the murder suspect.  Clinton police charged Edwards with first-degree murder in the death of Robert Davis Sunday.   Edwards fled the state but was caught in New Orleans yesterday.

Ag Commish Vows to Protect Fairgrounds, Stand up to Crime

Commish won't say how many LEO's on duty during shootout. 

Warning: Criminals are not welcome and will go to jail if they act up at the Mississippi State Fairgrounds.  So warned Ag Commish Andy Gipson in no-nonsense terms during a press conference yesterday at the Mississippi Trademart. The press conference was vintage Commissioner Gipson, sans hat, as his trademark booming voice swore to fight Jackson's crime wave and make the fairgrounds safe for all as he liberally quoted scripture.

Robert St. John: Home Again

 It’s great to be home. I have spent the last two months overseas. First in Spain leading a group of 25 enthusiastic Americans from the top to the bottom of that country while filming an upcoming television show. Then I spent a month or so in Tuscany leading tours for three weeks, and with a group of friends the final week. I've been home for six days. The adjustment back to Central Daylight Time in America has been easier than normal.

Ben Shapiro: Elon Musk's Twitter Takeover Reveals the Left For What It Is

 This week, in one of the most shocking business moves in recent memory, Twitter reversed itself and decided to sell itself after all to Elon Musk, who paid some $44 billion for the privilege. The move was made, at least in part, for ideological reasons; Musk has been vocally critical of Twitter's management of information flow. Immediately upon the news of the buyout breaking, Musk tweeted, "Free speech is the bedrock of a functional democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated. I also want to make Twitter better than ever by enhancing the product with new features, making the algorithms open source to increase trust, defeating the spam bots, and authenticating all humans."

Flashback: 26 Years Since JFD Massacre

It's been 26 years since Kenneth Tornes went on a racist rampage to kill whites at the Jackson Fire Department. The Jackson firefighter showed up at JFD headquarters on April 24, 1996, killed four white JFD officials and injured three others (one of the injured victims was black).  He led police on a chase that ended in front of McRae's at Northpark Mall.  Ridgeland police officer Corporal Richard Gooch stopped Tornes with incredible marksmanship as he shot Tornes in the eye at 50 yards with a pistol.  The 9mm round did not kill Tornes, but instead glanced off of his skull.  Tornes died in prison.

Ted Rall: When It Cares, the US Government Is Extremely Efficient

 As the COVID-19 pandemic has made painfully clear, our health care system is a disaster; 12% of Americans are uninsured and 21% are underinsured. Many counties have zero or just one health care plan on offer through their local Affordable Care Act marketplace, so there is no price competition whatsoever. Due to the lack of competition, and price gouging, by for-profit insurers, the average family of four who buys insurance through Obamacare pays a whopping $25,000 a year in premiums and deductibles-more than a third of their income after taxes.

Banks Statement of Facts on Garbage Collection

Jackson Ward 6 Councilman Aaron Banks authored and submitted this column.  Guest columns on the Jackson garbage controversy are welcome. 


Over the past two years, the Mayor and City Council have sparred over the garbage collection contract. Each time, the Council has spoken by a majority vote over who would have the capacity to collect garbage within the 113.2 square miles of the City of Jackson.  Our procedural process is that after a winner of a bid within the RFP is presented, it is then presented to council for approval. If the council votes it up,  the mayor’s office proceeds with contract negotiations; if it is voted down, then the mayor’s office begins negotiations with the 2nd place winner of the bid within that RFP.  After the council, having voted down the proposal (bid) presented by FCC twice, the mayor’s office asked the City attorney’s office to see if he (the mayor) could declare an emergency to execute a contract. However, this was done; one week before any negotiations began with Waste Management.  Those negotiations failed, the council went to court to ensure that garbage collections would still happen. In court, we reached a settlement agreement signed by both parties and entered into a six-month agreement with Waste Management that was approved at the next council meeting. That agreement allowed WM to service the City of Jackson for 6 months, while the administration proceeded with another RFP process.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
