Rep. Johnson Speaks on Joining Lawsuit Against Pelosi’s Unconstitutional Proxy Voting Scheme

Article Image Alt Text

U.S. Representative Mike Johnson (LA-04), Ranking Member of House Judiciary Subcommittee on Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, joined House Republicans on May 27 to discuss the details of the lawsuit that he and 20 of his Republican colleagues filed yesterday to overturn Speaker Pelosi’s proxy voting rule.

Pelosi’s rule runs counter to both the Constitution and the over 230-year precedent of members of the House assembling inperson to consider legislation. Under the rule, as few as 20 members can control the votes of 220 members.

Johnson made the following remarks as delivered:

“Listen, for 20 years before I got to Congress, I litigated Constitutional law cases at federal courts around the country. I had some difficult cases on occasion- this is a really easy one. I brought along a little visual aid here for our Democratic colleagues.

In Flanders Fields – A Memorial Day Tribute

In Flanders Fields – A Memorial Day Tribute

Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, a noted Canadian physician before the war, served with Canada’s First Brigade Artillery as a surgeon at a field hospital in Belgium. As he worked within sight of poppies blooming across old battlefields and fresh graves, he crafted a poignant testament against war and wasted lives that arguably became the Great War’s most famous poem, “In Flanders Fields.” McCrae himself died from disease in 1918, the war’s last year.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses, row on row,

DFD 1 Observes “We Remember” Night Honoring First Responder Suicides

DFD 1 Observes “We Remember” Night Honoring First Responder Suicides

First responders, who include firefighters, police officers, EMS personnel, medical personnel, disaster relief workers, and coroners, typically arrive early to incidents involving harm to people or property. The nature of their work exposes them to death, grief, injury, pain, and loss, coupled with demanding schedules, physically challenging job requirements, and a lack of safety and security in certain work situations. In DeSoto Parish, many of our First Responders are volunteers that serve out of love for their community and neighbors. Chances are the DeSoto First Responders that come to your aid will know you or your family members.

Repeated exposure to death and destruction can result in emotional trauma, which can lead to mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, PTDS, and in the worst cases, suicide. Ironically, the May 15 event fell on the day before the anniversary of DeSoto Fire District 1’s former chief, Rusty Canton’s death by suicide.

Groups Urge LA to Use CARES Act Funding to Address Educational Inequities

Education advocates are urging state leaders in Louisiana to use the millions of dollars the state is receiving in federal emergency funding to eliminate education inequities and support children and families disproportionately affected by the covid-19 school closures.

The Louisiana Department of Education is set to receive nearly$287 million in education funding through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, and at least 90 percent of those funds will go directly to local education agencies across the state. The law gives the state and districts significant discretion on how these funds are spent.

Help Ease the Medical Bills of Jackson Coffey

Help Ease the Medical Bills of Jackson Coffey

Back in March 2020, Jackson Coffey was in and out of the pediatrician’s office for almost 2 weeks. Jackson had swollen lymph nodes, red puffy eyes and rash that covered most of his body along with being severely lethargic and not being able to get out of bed without help before they finally admitted him to the hospital because they couldn’t figure out what was going on. He was then finally diagnosed with Kawasaki Disease once he was hospitalized.

By that time his fever was staying around 103- 104 degrees and he had already lost 10 lbs. He was treated with IVIG treatment and remained in the hospital another 5 days. Jackson’s fever finally eased at that time so he was sent home, but at home he still remained in bed very weak and still not eating and had to have help to get up to go to the bathroom which is the only time he got out of bed.
