From the Fox 8 case in Nova Scotia we have this map entered into evidence: Continue reading “Here are a couple of maps of the Trout Point Development as a nice visual aid for our readers.”
After reading Drew Broach’s piece and the latest filing by the federal prosecutors in the bribery case involving disgraced former Parish President Aaron Broussard I came away with the distinct feeling I had seen the name of his original Louisiana based LLC set up to accept bribes from Parish contractors that went to buy real estate at the Trout Point resort, Nova Scotia Enterprises, LLC. The connection is Broussard’s long time associate and part owner of the Lodge at Trout Point, Danny Abel but Abel’s name does not show up in the Team USA legal filing, rather we have a redacted list of the original investors. There is some interesting things in the redacted ownership document that was presented to the court however and I bet Slabbed can shed some light on the names which were redacted from the court filing.
To set things up though I feel compelled to point out the Times Picayune trail blazed this topic, was SLAPP sued in Nova Scotia by Broussard’s property managers Charles Leary and Vaughn Perret who are Abel’s business partners that are based at the Lodge. Val Bracy at Fox 8 also had a great report on the topic which was retracted earlier this year as part of the SLAPP suit settlement in Nova Scotia filed by Leary and Perret. Through time I have also learned this same bunch has availed themselves of Canada’s defamation laws against several Canadian media outlets such as the Rural Delivery, which did an excellent expose on Leary, Abel and Perret’s attempted fleecing of the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency among others.
I have also been SLAPP sued by this same bunch in Canada but continued to investigate the topic of Broussard’s use of a real estate development in Canada to launder the alleged bribes that were paid to him. This litigation is currently awaiting a ruling by US District Court Judge Louis Guriola. They have also repeatedly threatened a new media journalist in the Town of Shelburne Nova Scotia for reporting on the court case they filed against me among other things for they simply do not want this topic discussed. With the latest Federal Court filing in the case against Aaron Broussard I think everyone now understands why Charles Leary lied to the Times Picayune in January 2010 regarding their involvement with Aaron Broussard and why their story continually changes with each revelation. More on that in a bit.
Let’s begin with a few pages of documents from that Team USA Court filing, specifically the exhibits as here are the initial owners of Nova Scotia Enterprises LLC, which according to Team Fed was a conduit to pay bribes to Aaron Broussard: Continue reading “Let’s talk a bit more about Aaron Broussard’s “evidence of other crimes” involving the resort at Trout Point Nova Scotia and the use of SLAPP suits by his business associates in Canada.”
Nope I’m not saying anything. Not yet that is. Welcome to the Inn at the Do Slabb.

“I have watched through a window the world that has fallen.” ~ W. H. Auden
This Tuesday’s date, 9/11, turned into the frantic dialing of 911 eleven years ago. . A surreal feeling of shock and helplessness enveloped all Americans as we watched that day’s events unfold. In hindsight, we should ask many questions. Is America a safer place today? Maybe. But we also have witnessed a fundamental shift in our culture, where liberty and freedom have been compromised so that we supposedly feel “more safe.”
Ten years ago on that horrific day, I was at home, when a family friend called, a little after 8:00 a.m. central time to tell me about the first plane’s crashing into the World Trade Center. Like millions of Americans, I turned on my television just in time to see the second plane hit the second tower.
I was home alone, so I immediately felt the need to call the people closest to me. I was able to reach my mother, my brother Jack, and two of my daughters. I told them all to turn on their TV sets. I reached my son on his cell phone as he was entering the LSU Lab School. But, what about my oldest daughter, Campbell? I knew she had flown back to Washington late the night before, from California, where she was doing a story on the retirement of the president’s plane, a former Air Force One. Perhaps she was still home. I called her apartment, but got no answer. Then the third plane hit the Pentagon in Washington. Thoughts raced through my head. Was there a fourth plane — or more? Wasn’t the White House a likely target? Was my oldest daughter sitting in her NBC office in the White House? Continue reading “Jim Brown Extra: Our lives were changed by 9/11”
