lagop damageThe Louisiana Republican Party has sent out an "URGENT" email to its members asking them to contact their legislature due to "strongarming" by the Governor-in-Transition, Jon Bel Edwards.  Here is the press release:

 

Last month, Louisiana voters elected historic Republican majorities in both the House and Senate.

Now, our next battle is to ensure that our Republican legislators elect a Republican Speaker of the House.

Governor-elect John Bel Edwards is strong-arming Republicans and urging them to choose liberal Democrat Walt Leger as the next Speaker.

Here's the thing...the Speaker wields the power to set the agenda for the House of Representatives. With John Bel Edwards and Walt Leger calling the shots, all conservative reforms will be dead on arrival.

We won't even get to vote on conservative tax reform, expanding school choice, or much-needed tort reform. Instead, we'll be voting on tax increases, restrictions on our Second Amendment rights and policies that will put liberal unions back in charge.

Join us and tell our Republican legislators to commit to only voting for a REPUBLICAN Speaker of the House.

Click here to sign the petition and we'll forward your name on to your State Representative.

- Republican Party of Louisiana.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
