  • Adams asks council members to take police ride-alongs as he rails against bill that ‘could make the city less safe’

    Mayor Eric Adams on Sunday continued to campaign against the controversial NYPD bill that will require officers to document even the most minor interactions — inviting members of the City Council to take ride-alongs with cops as they patrol the Big Apple. “With a bill pending that could make the city less safe, city councilmembers deserve to see firsthand how our NYPD officers are keeping the public safe and building relationships in our communities — and they deserve to understand how this bill would force those officers to spend more time filling out paperwork instead of protecting New Yorkers and...

    A Jewish man who lost family in the October 7 attacks was jeered at by protestors who made pig noises and pretend horns while at a San Francisco council meeting. The incident occurred on January 8 at a San Francisco Board of Supervisors hearing scheduled the day before a vote on a resolution to call for a ceasefire in Gaza. In a moving speech to the Board the man described how his first cousins were killed at Kibbutz Be'eri on October 7. 'This resolution does one thing, it fuels antisemitism and hatred, as exemplified in this room right now' the...

    The St. Paul, Minn., city council made history Tuesday when each of its seven seats were filled by women for the first time in the city’s history. Four of the seven members sworn in at an inauguration ceremony were incoming freshman. Anika Bowie, Saura Jost, HwaJeong Kim and Cheniqua Johnson joined incumbents Mitra Jalali, Rebecca Noecker and Nelsie Yang, MPR News reported. Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan addressed the crowd at the inauguration event and said her “heart is overflowing.” “I’m honored to be here today to celebrate these incredible leaders, all that they have accomplished to get here and all...

    A woke Boston city councilor was ordered to retake the oath of office after footage showed her refusing to say the words or raise her right hand during a swearing in ceremony. Tania Fernandes Anderson appeared not to repeat the oath in a video that has since gone viral on social media after the ceremony in City Hall on Monday. Footage shows Anderson standing silently with her hands clasped in front of her in between two fellow councilors who can be seen raising their right hand and repeating the oath of office. Anderson reportedly told the clerk that she was...

    The New York City Council pushed through two controversial bills Wednesday that will see a ban on solitary confinement in Big Apple jails and force cops to file reports for every street stop they carry out — even the low-level ones. The two bills, which were vehemently opposed by Mayor Eric Adams along with police and jail guard unions, passed with a veto-proof majority — meaning the legislation will likely not be quashed by Hizzoner and will become law. “The New York City Council has taken action today that, if implemented, will unquestionably make our city less safe,” the mayor...

    Far-left members of the City Council want to make Big Apple landlords do their work for them — or face five-figure fines. A new bill would require property owners to provide tenants with contact information for all elected officials representing their respective neighborhoods. Under the bill, introduced last week by Brooklyn Councilwoman Jennifer Gutiérrez, landlords would be required to supply new and existing tenants with hard-copy notices listing the names, office addresses and phone contacts for all federal, state and city pols representing their neighborhoods.

    That’s relieving news. City lawmakers are aiming to solve an all-too-common problem of not knowing where to go when you’ve got to go — which plagues tourists and locals alike — with a bill to add thousands of new thrones to the Big Apple within the next 12 years. If passed, the plan introduced by Brooklyn Councilmember Sandy Nurse on Thursday would amend the city’s charter and require the government to build a four-year plan of “establishing and maintaining a public bathroom network,” Hell Gate NYC reported. “This is really an issue of equity and justice. It’s been a long...

    Yusef Salaam, a member of the exonerated “Central Park Five,” has officially won the Democratic primary for a seat on the New York city council, almost ensuring his eventual election to the seat. Salaam had a significant lead over his opponents, New York Assembly members Inez Dickens and Al Taylor, for the nomination to represent Council District 9 in Central Harlem, but he needed additional votes released Wednesday to clinch victory. Initial unofficial results put Salaam as the clear leader with 50.14 percent of the vote, while Dickens and Taylor had about 25 and 14 percent, respectively. Incumbent Kristin Jordan,...

An internal document titled "Workplace Gender Transition Protocols & FAQ" explains the city's expectations for conduct regarding transgender individuals. The guidelines explain that "gender transition" can refer to a spectrum of situations, all of which are equally protected.

  • L.A. City Council Votes Unanimously to Replace Natural Gas with Unproven Hydrogen Power

    The Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously on Wednesday to convert a natural gas power plant to a new hydrogen system that critics say may not provide enough power and could cause more environmental damage. The proposal is part of a “Green New Deal” adopted by former mayor Eric Garcetti to shutter three natural gas plants in favor of “renewable” energy — over objections that solar and wind power would not be sufficient, and that the move would cost thousands of union jobs. Garcetti stuck with his plan even after the state suffered electricity shortages in 2020 and after Democrats...

    We must have missed the announcement, but apparently the Los Angeles City Council has been sold to Court TV. It’s as good an explanation as any for the wall-to-wall stories of court dates, guilty pleas, search warrants and indictments. Every day it’s something else, and if you try to change the channel, it’s like all the buttons on the remote are broken. There’s no escape. Well, there’s always the U-Haul escape, which more and more Los Angeles residents are finding attractive.

    Black Lives Matter protesters clashed with riot cops in Los Angeles this week as the city council installed a new president amid the ongoing scandal of members recorded making shocking racist remarks. At least 50 protesters descended on City Hall ahead of the key meeting Tuesday — even though it was being held virtually, with only the acting president and staffers inside at the time. A throng of baton-wielding cops in protective headgear waited inside, forcing the protesters out when they tried to storm the building. Video footage captured tense confrontations as the protesters demanded the meeting be postponed until...

Officer Pete Arredondo’s bungled orders resulted in the slowed response of at least 19 cops at Robb Elementary School, where a gunman opened fire and killed 19 students and two teachers, according to NBC News.

    The White House ignored calls Tuesday for an independent special counsel to investigate President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden’s shady foreign business deals. White House press secretary Jen Psaki indicated a special counsel was not needed because Biden had not discussed the investigation into his son with his Department of Justice (DOJ).

    We’ve been bringing you a lot of the crazy that various authorities have directed at the Freedom Convoy. Justin Trudeau has been right up there at the top with demonizing the Convoy. But, perhaps no one has been worse than Ottawa city councilor Diane Deans, who’s the chair of the police services board. Deans claimed the protest was an insurrection — that the protesters are terrorists and it’s not mostly rural Canadians behind it, but Americans seeking to overthrow Canada’s democracy. That’s how unhinged it has been in the Zoom meetings on the subject. While she’s not the only unhinged...
