    Louisiana public schools are closing the door to woke ideologies in social studies curricula and turning instead to American exceptionalism. “If you look throughout the course of American history, you see that we have always been on a quest for freedom, whether it was the signers of the Declaration of Independence or the abolishment of slavery,” Louisiana Superintendent of Education Cade Brumley told The Epoch Times. A detail from the painting “Declaration of Independence” by John Trumbull (1826), depicting the Committee of Five: (L–R) John Adams, Robert Livingston, Roger Sherman, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin. (Public Domain) Brumley oversaw the...

    NEW ORLEANS - The Louisiana Supreme Court has ruled in favor of Tony Spell, the Central Pastor who continued to hold church services in defiance of restrictions Gov. John Bel Edwards imposed to stop the spread of COVID. Overruling lower courts, the justices ruled that the restrictions on gatherings and the stay-at-home mandate Edwards imposed were unconstitutional. They ordered the charges against Spell quashed. Justices John Weimer and Scott Chrichton dissented on the ruling.

    Louisiana lawmakers 'cannot wait on the Supreme Court' and have advanced a bill that would not only abolish abortion but classify it as homicide. The move on Wednesday came two days after a leaked draft ruling showed the US Supreme Court poised to overturn the 1973 landmark Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion nationwide. Louisiana state Representative Danny McCormick, a Republican who introduced the 'Abolition of Abortion Act' legislation in March, said the impending ruling from the nation's high court should not delay the state's efforts to ban abortion access. 'We cannot wait on the Supreme Court,' McCormick said...

    Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) asked Nusrat Jahan Choudhury, who is the nominee to serve as a U.S. district judge of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, during a hearing about a previous comment she made claiming police kill unarmed black men every single day while at Princeton. "This is a really simple question, counselor. Do you believe that cops kill unarmed black men in America every single day? You said it at Princeton," he asked. "Senator, I said it in my role as an advocate," said Choudhury. "Oh, okay. You didn’t mean it," Kennedy replied....

    Loud fireball spotted over southern Mississippi mostly heard, hardly seen. A fiery meteor streaked across the morning skies in southern Mississippi yesterday, April 27, 2022. More than 30 eyewitnesses in the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi reported seeing a bright fireball at 8:03 a.m. CDT. The sighting was soon followed by numerous reports of loud booms heard in Claiborne County, Mississippi, and surrounding counties. Approximately 22,000 miles out in space, NOAA’s Geostationary Lightning Mappers (GLM) onboard the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites (GOES) 16 and 17 detected several bright flashes associated with the fragmentation of this bolide, or exceptionally bright...

    An elderly Slidell man has "significant" injuries after being attacked by a "vicious" squirrel Tuesday, police said. It's the second reported squirrel attack this year in Slidell, according to authorities. The 78-year-old man told authorities he was walking outside his home when the squirrel came from the direction of his roof and attacked him unprovoked. The squirrel "was eating his hand," according to a written statement from Slidell police about the 911 call. "The man was attempting to choke the squirrel, but was unable to obtain a good grip," police said. The man was still struggling with the animal when...

    A Louisiana mother and grandmother were charged with murder on Friday after they forced a four-year-old girl to drink half a bottle of whiskey, as punishment for taking a sip. Roxanne Record, 53, and her daughter Kadjah Record, 28, were each booked into the East Baton Rouge parish prison following the death of Kadjah's daughter China from acute alcohol poisoning. The little girl had a blood alcohol level of .068 more than eight times the .08 legal limit for people over 21 to drive when she died. Police were called to the home in the Windsor Place area of Baton...

    A viral TikTok video from a Louisiana elementary school teacher has gone viral after she insisted she should be allowed to teach her students that God did not make a mistake when he created them. Kristan Whann, a 4th grade teacher at Doyle Elementary in Livingston, argued that if other teachers can talk to her children about “gender identity” she should have the liberty to counter it in her own classroom. “I should be able to teach them about Jesus and how God created them a boy or a girl on purpose and for a purpose.

    Private donations from Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg were used "to manipulate state law in a way that they could harvest ballots," asserts Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry. Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry won an appeal last week against private, "Zuckerbucks"-style funding for state elections, arguing that it's not the government's job "to entice people to go vote." Landry told the John Solomon Reports podcast on Tuesday that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckberberg, who spent nearly $400 million on city and county voting operations in the 2020 presidential election, found loopholes in the law. "He ... found a way to manipulate the laws,"...

    President Joe Biden should prioritize American energy independence and end reliance on adversaries such as Russia, Venezuela, and Iran, 27 state financial officers say in a letter Tuesday to the president. In their letter, they urge Biden to consider the consequences of foreign energy dependence for U.S. businesses and consumers. “Policies implemented during the last year thwart the vitality of American energy production,” the financial officers’ letter to Biden reads. “The rising cost of fuel, coupled with precipitous inflation has, and will, continue to result in dire consequences for working-class families.” The 27 state-level officials are part of the State...

    Title 42 makes sense with or without the pandemic. Vaccine mandates make no sense either way. The Biden regime's selected use of Pandemic Panic Theater is a major concern. The reason Joe Biden didn’t lift Title 42 in the beginning of his term is because he couldn’t take away focus from Pandemic Panic Theater. Now that everyone’s attention has been diverted to Ukraine temporarily, Biden is able to pretend like the emergency part of the pandemic is over and Title 42 can be lifted. The public health policy was designed to allow border patrol to immediately send back illegal aliens...

    Border chief Alejandro Mayorkas is directing that economic migrants get every opportunity to stay once the Title 42 barrier is removed — regardless of the huge damage he inflicts on ordinary Americans. Mayorkjas’ intentions are described in his February strategy, which was leaked to Breitbart Texas on April 4. The February strategy is titled “DHS Southwest Border Mass Irregular Migration Contingency Plan,” and it says on page 16: A. Secretary’s Intent. 1 ) Purpose: The purpose of this plan is to describe a proactive approach that humanely prevents and responds to surges in irregular migration across the U.S. [southern border]....

    Three red states — Arizona, Louisiana, and Missouri — have filed suit to block the Biden administration from lifting Title 42. The administration said on Friday that it would lift the public health policy that has been in place since the Trump administration, which enabled border enforcement to summarily expel millions of aliens who attempted to enter the country at the southern border. The order is set to be lifted on May 23 — at which time DHS estimates the already overwhelming influx at the southern border may increase to as many as 18,000 apprehensions per day.On Sunday, the attorneys...
  • Ben Sasse to Vote ‘No’ on Jackson’s Supreme Court Nomination, Threatening Judiciary Committee’s Approval

    Senate Judiciary Committee member Ben Sasse (R-NE) announced Friday night he will vote “no” on Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Supreme Court nomination, threatening the committee’s approval of the judge. If a majority of Judiciary Committee members do not vote to approve Jackson’s nomination, the vote may result in an 11-11 tie between Republicans and Democrats, forwarding her nomination to the Senate floor with additional procedural steps, meaning the nomination does not have the committee’s recommendation, which under other circumstances is often fatal. A full Senate vote could then mean moderate Democrats may oppose Jackson’s nomination because of her record of soft...

    You heard it. I heard it. The whole world heard it. Even CNN reported it. PJM’s Matt Margolis reported on it here. At the winter meeting of the Democratic National Committee in Washington on Saturday, Kamala Harris said: “The United States stands firmly with the Ukrainian people in defense of the NATO alliance.” Now, Ukraine is not actually in NATO, and so standing firmly with the Ukrainian people would not actually be an act in defense of the NATO alliance, and of all people, the person pretending to be vice president of the United States should know that. So...

    Kamala Harris is a nightmare to work for, reportedly refusing to do her 'homework' her staff prepare for her and then blaming staff when her ignorance makes her a laughingstock to the public. Not surprisingly, she hasn't been able to keep staff. That was news a few months ago, and the bad public relations from it died down with the news cycle. But it doesn't mean the flight still isn't happening. The Daily Mail did some interesting digging and found this: Kamala Harris is losing her ninth staffer since June in deputy press secretary Sabrina Singh, who is moving to...

    In what appeared to be an off-script opening to her speech, the vice president said: 'The Governor and I and we were all doing a tour of the library here and talking about the significance of the passage of time. Right?' 'The significance of the passage of time,' she repeated. 'So, when you think about it, there is great significance to the passage of time in terms of what we need to do to lay these wires, what we need to do to create these jobs,' Harris continued. She went on: 'And there is such great significance to the passage...
