Was our “traffic incident” investigation in Grand Isle a contributing factor for Stuart Bishop entering rehab?
LCG administrators think that the image of the Lafayette Police Department needs to be repaired while Kenneth Boudreaux, the most recent appointee of the Lafayette Fire and Police Civil Service Board, feels that a complaint filed by CNLA is ‘tarnishing’ the image of officers. What do you think? After 450 days is it finally time for the Civil Service Board to look into the internal investigative and discipline practices of the Lafayette Police Department?
It’s true. The poisonous Denice Skinner has finally been excommunicated from the Lafayette Republican Party. Was it because she absconded with the party’s $35,797 Facebook asset? Yes, but there’s more. Here’s a timely update to our previous coverage of this issue.
When a very attentive Livingston Parish mom took her pre-teen girls to their local library she was SHOCKED by one of the books her girls opened and then quickly closed. “Nothing could have prepared me for what I was about to see.”
Crime continues to be a problem for Downtown Lafayette despite a recent 50% property tax hike, an extra 1% sales tax, and an extra 2% occupancy tax. According to one police officer, not only have multiple safety suggestions been completely ignored, but for making the suggestions he’s now been forbidden from working downtown!
Should government resources be used to pick winners? It took Louisiana Department of Health months to respond to our records requests about doing just that. While certain bureaucrats in LDH were using the state agency’s voice to blatantly promote a political agenda, many legislators and even top bureaucrats inside the department were asking “what does this have to do with healthcare?” The short answer is: nothing.
The tremendous amount of unnecessary, negative attention directed at the Livingston Parish Library is the result of a compounding series bad decisions. Thankfully, and based on an in-person visit to Livingston Parish to inspect Live Oak Middle School’s library inventory, these problems appear to be isolated to the public library system only. Said again for emphasis: the Livingston middle school libraries appear to be free of this erotic material.
The Louisiana Department of Health’s response to the covid pandemic has largely been an uncritical regurgitation of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidance, which to this point — two and half years in — has been not only incredibly inaccurate, inept, and devoid of scientific rationale, but harmful to people’s physical and mental health.
Our attempts to acquire law enforcement agreements with the federal government were rebuffed by the City-Parish of Lafayette. “You can’t have” the agreements that offer money to us for spying on our citizens (on the feds behalf). Now, before you start screaming “conspiracy theory,” know that not only do we already have copies of these agreements, but we’re also sharing them with you.
I keep telling you that these people are first-rate hypocrites. Maybe you want proof. Well, here you go. Last week, Citizens for a New Louisiana got called out by the American Library Association for being responsible for censorship! When we tried to respond publicly, THEY CENSORED IT! What a bunch of agenda-driven political hacks!
Republicans are constantly trying to convince you that they are doing everything they can. The truth is, they are not. They count on not having to stick to their word or stand by their vote. Is insincerity the reason they fear a veto session? Senate, the place where...
People follow our content because we aren’t afraid to point out when those with nefarious intent hijack the process for their own selfish gain. In fact, it’s one of my favorite things to tell you about.
Documents acquired by Citizens for a New Louisiana reveal that it was the speaker himself who ordered our media credentials seized and revoked earlier this year; and made to appear as if someone else had done it.
