    Hey civic-minded folks! Big news from the Golden Gate City – over 60% of San Francisco residents have just given a nod to Propositions E and F. Let’s unpack the changes and what they might mean for the city’s future. First up, Proposition E is handing more tools to the police to tackle crime head-on. Think of it as a power-up for law enforcement, allowing them to fight crime more effectively, pursue suspects with added vigor, and even bring drones into the mix for catching criminals. It’s like a strategic upgrade for the city’s crime-fighting team.

Speaking at the Faith & Freedom Coalition’s Road to a Majority Conference in Washington, DC, Trump went into his border and immigration plans in great detail. He first blasted automatic citizenship as “so unfair for our country” and vowed to end it on his first day in...

    At least 80 county sheriffs and prosecutors have vowed not to enforce the new Illinois gun control law that bans 170 kinds of semi-automatic rifles and places limits on ammunition magazines. “The right to keep and bear arms for defense of life, liberty and property is regarded as an inalienable right by the people,” said Iroquois County Sheriff Clinton Perzee. “I, among many others, believe that [House Bill 5471] is a clear violation of the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution,” he added. Perzee said he would not use his jail to detain people solely for violating the new gun...

    Several sheriffs in Oregon said they will not enforce the state’s new gun law that places a limit on magazine capacity, arguing that the provision violates the Constitution’s Second Amendment.Oregon voters approved Measure 114, also known as the Reduction of Gun Violence Act, during the Nov. 8 midterm elections. The rule, among other restrictions, outlaws magazines that hold more than 10 rounds—similar to rules that have been implemented in New York, California, and other Democrat-controlled states.Several county sheriffs have publicly announced they won’t enforce the law or parts of the law.“The biggest thing is this does absolutely nothing to address...

    President Joe Biden’s vaccine coercion mandate will rely on snitches for enforcement.When Biden announced the pending mandate requiring businesses with 100 or more employees to compel the COVID-19 vaccine, he hoped it would force over 100 million workers to get the jab. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, however, currently only employs 1,850 inspectors, which the agency notes is “about one compliance officer for every 70,000 workers.” This shortage of oversight has already sparked enforcement using tattletale workers and union representatives who report businesses that are not following the Emergency Temporary Standard related to COVID-19 protocols and health care facilities.OSHA...
