Before we recap our week in winter wonder, I want to take a moment to send condolences to the family of radio giant, Rush Limbaugh, the groundbreaking political entertainer, proud American, and recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom who passed away this week after an extended battle with lung cancer.
His persona was affable, jovial, bold, and oozing with principled-based confidence, ”on-loan from God!” Those traits made him formidable, and were a great asset in his fight to communicate conservative principles.
Rush became, to a generation, a trusted advisor, and an ally in the fight for liberty. More importantly, he was a larger-than-life, happy warrior who could provide his opponent respect and a platform, then provide, in layman’s terms, a compelling explanation for his positions.
Mega-Dittos, Rush. You did well.
This was a challenging week for many across our state. Thousands remain without power or water, following the Winter-pocalypse of 2021. We already know several lost their lives because of this winter storm. Our prayers are for those struggling at this moment. We’ll keep you updated with ways that you can help as they become available.
Here are a few stories we believe deserve attention as you head into your weekend:
In case you missed it, LFF has added Louisiana’s name to the list of supporters of the Promise to America’s Children. This promise outlines the policy objectives of Americans who want to see America’s children protected from medical experimentation and given a chance to grow up without political interference.
Senator Bill Cassidy offered this explanation in the Advocate for his vote to convict President Trump and faces censure and petitions for his resignation.
Dominion Voting Systems, the company whose machines were so heavily scrutinized after mistakes and strange counting errors, plans to bid on Louisiana’s RFP for replacement of voting machines. The contract could be worth up to $100 million.
As we move into the weekend, we also want to thank those who have been working throughout the week to restore power and water, take care of those who are sick, keep our roads clear and safe, and ensure we have access to the things we need. Louisianians know how to take care of each other well!
Be safe and enjoy this weekend with your family!
In His Service,
