Dear Friends

As gas prices climb and our wallets are emptying, it's fair time that we demand that our legislators act upon the available remedies to this "Green Energy Flu" we have been subjected to.

It's simple: suspend Russian gas purchases, open up the Keystone XL pipeline (and others), and facilitate oil and gas production in the Gulf area.

Gary Bauer of American Values explained it succinctly in his email yesterday: 

When Donald Trump left office, we were energy independent. America was a leading energy producer. Even during the height of the Trump economic boom in 2019 gas prices averaged just $2.60 – down from 2018. Wouldn't you like to be paying $2.60 a gallon for gas today?

But when Joe Biden took office, he literally walked into the White House after his inauguration and declared war on the American energy industry. 

Among his "Day One" actions in the Oval Office was blocking a critical pipeline from Canada, and putting us back into the absurd Paris Climate Accord

In the days that followed, he blocked permits for drilling on federal land, limited offshore permits, banned additional drilling in Alaska, and pushed higher taxes and more regulations on energy companies. 

Not surprisingly, costs for gas and home heating oil went up as Joe Biden limited production and supply. But they didn't go up initially as much as experts predicted. Well, now we're finding out why. 

The Biden Administration started buying record amounts of Russian oil. That's right – Biden started buying oil from Vladimir Putin. (What does Vlad have on Joe Biden?) 

Biden is also trying to buy oil from Venezuela's Marxist dictator. He's trying to get oil from Libya and Saudi Arabia. He's even trying to cut a deal with the mullahs of Iran where we end sanctions on Iranian terrorists and human rights abusers and start buying their oil

Let's be absolutely clear about that: Instead of siding with the hard-working men and women of the American energy industry, Biden is siding with foreign dictators. 


U.S. Circuit Court Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson has been nominated to the Supreme Court. 

The Heritage Foundation issued an article about Jackson's background, judicial record and philosophy, and supporters. Not surprisingly, Jackson is an outspoken advocate of abortion and the LGBT agenda: “she is a favorite of left-wing special interest groups and was among the top front-runners for the seat.”

Ahead of her hearing, senators should consider the following evaluation criteria:

  • Is she committed to faithfully applying the Constitution and statutes by relying on their original public meaning?
  • Is she fair and impartial, putting facts ahead of her personal opinions?
  • Does she understand that a judge’s role is limited?
  • Will she reject outcome-oriented decisions?

With Jackson as the next possible SCOTUS justice, it is imperative that our legislators do their due diligence before casting their votes.


Fourteen states, including Louisiana, have sued the Biden administration for FBI surveillance of school board meetings. The lawsuit was issued to find out if “the administration colluded with the National School Boards Association (NSBA) last fall to create a pretext for the Department of Justice to investigate parent protests at school board meetings as ‘domestic terrorism and hate crimes.’”

This comes as parents have become increasingly concerned with how the public school system is being run. From Critical Race Theory (CRT), pro-LGBT curricula, and a push for inappropriate sex-ed classes/literature, to virtual learning and restrictive Covid mandates, many parents are fed up with the woke indoctrination and government overreach flooding schools across the nation.

“Things came to a head on October 4, 2021, when U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland wrote a memo to the director of the FBI and various federal prosecutors around the country authorizing investigations into parent protests, equating them with harassment, intimidation and threats of violence.

When multiple states requested documentation of the investigation, invoking the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), they were subsequently ignored. In turn, the lawsuit was issued, “asking the federal courts to order the government to respond.”


Friends, we must remain vigilant in the pursuit of truth. If you are looking for ways to help the suffering in Ukraine, you can donate through Samaritan's Purse, which has deployed a field hospital inside Ukraine, and Mercy Chefs, who are providing food and water to refugees.

In His Service,
