Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry joined the Tucker Carlson Tonight show on Wednesday to discuss the demise of New Orleans.

“New Orleans has got to be one of the coolest cities in the world, it’s just not like other places. The word unique is overused, but New Orleans really is. So, people love to go…Hard to go there now, particularly the French Quarter. It’s just too dangerous, and that’s a factual statement. New Orleans now has the highest per capita murder rate of any city in the United States,” Tucker said.

After playing a news clip about the murder rate in New Orleans, Tucker continued, “This is an emergency. There’s no bigger. It’s even worse than global warming or Covid. People are dying at a greater rate than any other place in the United States.”

Part of the problem, according to Landry? “One of the biggest problems we’re having is that the city is under a federal consent decree. You know, right now in America, the three cities with the highest homicide rate are all under federal consent decrees,” he said. “Federal consent decrees are basically a federal takeover of your – or that city’s –police department."

"Louisiana State Treasurer John Schroder announced on Wednesday that the Pelican State will withdraw $794 million in treasury funds from BlackRock over its ESG green energy activism," says a report from Breitbart following Schroder's announcement.

ESG (Energy, Social, and Governance) refers to a social-credit system (similar to Communist China's) that evaluates actions based on their potential impact on the environment from a climate-alarmist perspective.

Schroder stated, “A focus on political or social goals or placing those goals above the duty to enhance investors’ returns is unacceptable under Louisiana law. They are pushing their agendas contrary to the best interests of the people whose money they are using!”


You may have heard about President Biden's announcement that he is pardoning marijuana offenders from their federal crimes. Did you get the impression that these offenders were guilty of a simple, small possession of marijuana charge? Well, that's the narrative the media wants you to see. But it's not complete.

Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning explains, "People caught smoking a joint on the corner are not in federal prison.  People who are smuggling drugs are.  The fact is that it is easier to convict someone of simple possession than it is to prove that someone is smuggling, so oftentimes, the crime is pled down by the defendant to get a shorter prison term." He continued:

“Today Joe Biden chose to put thousands of drug dealers and smugglers back onto our streets without any attempt at individually reviewing their cases or any selection process to try to determine the circumstances surrounding their conviction.

“Drug smugglers don’t specialize in what they transport.  Today fentanyl, largely made in China, is responsible for about half the drug deaths.  Rather than pandering to the pot lobby, if the president were doing his job, he would be doing everything possible to shut down the international supply chain for fentanyl, whether it be through cargo ships from China or coming across our southern border.


Friends, these headlines, coupled with rising crime, a borderless America, historic inflation, tightening gas supplies, destabilizing economic policies and the threat of global hostilities likely evoke concern, but remember the words of our Lord: "These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation (troubles); but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world." John 16:33

I trust in these uncertain times that we will all lean into the certainty that Christ offers in this pledge, “In me you may have peace.” In Christ, I am led, cared for, equipped, and purposed to finish my assignment with excellence!

Have a great weekend.

In His Service,
