- PARTY FOR INDEPENDENCE DAY !! OUR ANNUAL EVENT.
SAVE THE DATE , JULY 9, FOR OUR ANNUAL BASH!! ALWAYS GREAT FUN. Come celebrate perhaps the greatest holiday of all times..... INDEPENDENCE DAY and the beginning of American exceptionalism based on liberty for all. As John Adams said....... Independence day "will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more." We will have "pomp"...but no bonfires!! We will also have a wonderful Bar B Que meal catered by Dickey's Barbeque Pit complete with 2 slow cooked, smoked meats, 3 sides, rolls, drinks, ......and a yummy cake. If anyone else would like to bring a special dessert to share, we would be thrilled to have it!! This is the perfect opportunity to enjoy mingling with fellow Patriots , enjoy a good meal, and discuss the issues of the day. Suggested topics: *Compare and contrast the Founding Fathers with the current Dem candidates for president. *Exactly when did SCOTUS start issuing rulings, not based on the Constitution, but on whether the Chief Justice thinks you are lying. Just kidding on the topics..... but could be interesting!!! PLEASE RSVP ASAP. Hope to see you there!
- RESTORE LAW AND ORDER: JUDGE SCOTT SCHLEGEL
Our Founding Fathers wisely gave us a "Republic" based on the Constitution and the Rule of Law. They knew an absolute "democracy" could result in mob rule, majority rule (even if the majority was lawless and prioritized their own self interests), and a takeover by powerful elitists/dictators who would make up their own "laws". But is our Republic slipping away..... Deep state at the federal level and legislators at every level who ignore our God given rights in favor of more government control? Our Keynote Speaker will be 24th Judicial District Court Judge Scott Schlegel, a former Jefferson Parish prosecutor who had handled thousands of criminal cases before he was elected to the Court in 2013. Judge Schlegel has a reputation as a law and order judge and has a special interest in carefully targeted criminal justice reform. There is a possibility that Judge Schlegel will run for the LA State Supreme Court in October..... another reason to come meet him. Other Agenda items: Updates from Mary Review of LA legislative Session by Terri ( it ends June 6!!) Constitution Bootcamp presentation of 5th Amendment GNOTP member Joe Liss ( Toastmaster Extraordinaire) will introduce the Judge more TBA Please RSVP ASAP..... we will be serving dinner. And HAT TIP to our wonderful members who have been bringing dessert and other items for all to enjoy. Thanks!!! Bring friends and family. Meeting open to the public!!

- FORMER DEM, NOW REPUBLICAN SEN. ELBERT GUILLORY SPEAKS
Please join us for our March 12 meeting to hear our keynote speaker, former Louisiana Senator Elbert Guillory who speaks out eloquently about the evils of liberalism... especially for the black community. ICYMI here is a video of Sen Guillory when he abandoned the Dem Party and became a Republican in 2013 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aD1r6IEV5Bw In 2014, Elbert Guillory would play a critical role in the defeat of Senator Mary Landrieu in his home state. Guillory filmed a speech standing in the poorest neighborhood street in Opelousas - "Academy Street" - demanding that Senator Landrieu explain why, after 18 years in the Senate, nothing had changed. The message resonated. Guillory went on to replicate similar messages in North Carolina against Sen. Kay Hagan, as well as Sen. Mark Pryor in Arkansas and finally played an instrumental role in the defeat of Michelle Nunn in Georgia. Guillory has made numerous TV & radio appearances with the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Mark Levin, Megyn Kelly, Alex Jones, Greta Van Sustern and Neil Cavuto. He has been featured in National Review Online, the Weekly Standard and the Wall Street Journal, to name just a few. The Senator recently was a featured speaker at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference in Kenner. As usual, we will have GNOTP and legislative updates.... and dinner!! Please RSVP ASAP !!!
- PART 2: INDOCTRINATION IN OUR K-12 CLASSROOMS
The Marxists, socialists,and commies are working hard to destroy our culture.... hoping that will open the door to their LEFTIST ideals and their eventual takeover of the country. We know (cause they have told us) that one of their tactics is to infiltrate the schools and indoctrinate young minds with not only propaganda but also confusing thought processes which discount morality, truth, facts, and critical thinking. Last year, Dr. Beth Myers gave us an excellent talk regarding the current Leftist tactics being used on our Pre-K - 12 students. She will be back for this meeting for Part 2 with important updates.... with an emphasis on the Comprehensive Sex Education aspects, While CA and NY may have willingly accepted the Left's plan, Louisiana may not be too far behind. Our LA legislature will undoubtedly be facing multiple bills this year that attempt to transform our schools. Dr. Meyers will soon be moving out of state so this may be your last opportunity to hear her speak. PLEASE bring family, friends, parents, grandparents, teachers...anyone who needs to know what is happening in our schools. Dinner will be served so please RSVP asap
