    Califoria Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) was exultant Thursday after signing a law to raise wages in fast food restaurants to $20 per hour and to create a new “council” that will govern the industry. “California is home to more than 500,000 fast-food workers who – for decades – have been fighting for higher wages and better working conditions,” Newsom said in a statement. “Today, we take one step closer to fairer wages, safer and healthier working conditions, and better training by giving hardworking fast-food workers a stronger voice and seat at the table.” The legislation, the Wall Street Journal reported...

    In a unanimous decision, the three-judge panel said the 2021 law runs afoul of a provision of the Arizona Constitution which clearly spells out that lawmakers cannot revoke the right of anyone to recover damages for injuries. That same language bars any statute that caps the amount of damages someone who sues successfully can recover.

    Gene Kim teaches readers of the Bible how to better interpret and divide the Word of Truth. In order to get a better understanding of the Bible, he instructs the reader to understand each Scripture by asking, who is the author? Who is he speaking to? What time period is the author addressing? Does the Scripture have double application?

    Some truths are so staggering in their ramifications that Americans simply shrug and tune them out as if strangers in a strange land. Is their current bewilderment because modernist America is unrecognizable —a nonexistent border, downtown homeless juxtaposed to hipster professional elites, DEI racial essentialism, cities reverting to precivilizational wastelands, millions exiting blue states to red, a DOJ gone rogue, the normalization of violent theft and assault, biologically born men sandbagging women’s sports and their locker room privacy? We are reaching the point where the once unbelievable has become the banal, as a single generation has done its best to...

All day and every day, you constantly receive highly personalized instructions for how to comply with the law, sent directly by your government and law enforcement. You’re told how to cross the street, how fast to drive on the way to work, and what you’re allowed to say or do online—if you’re in any situation that might have legal implications, you’re told exactly what to do, in real time. Imagine that the computer system formulating these personal legal directives at mass scale is so complex that no...

    Donald Trump’s old tweets are coming back to haunt him. Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis highlighted a dozen of the former president’s posts on the platform X, formerly known as Twitter, in her sweeping 2020 election racketeering case against him. The tweets were showcased in a section of the 13-count indictment against Trump that outlined 150 instances that played a role in his alleged conspiracy to thwart the 2020 election. Here are the tweets cited in the 98-page document. “Wow! Blockbuster testimony taking place right now in Georgia. Ballot stuffing by Dems when Republicans were forced to leave the...

    LANCASTER COUNTY, Nebraska (LifeSiteNews) – Nebraska can enforce its law against abortions after 12 weeks and protect minors from surgical and chemical mutilation, a state judge ruled recently. District Court Judge Lori Maret upheld Legislative Bill 574 which prohibits “gender-altering surgery” for minors, such as mastectomies and genital surgeries, while requiring the state’s chief medical officer – Dr. Timothy Tesmer, an appointee of Governor Jim Pillen – to issue regulations on the use of transgender drugs. There are some exceptions in the bill, such as allowing the use of unscientific and dangerous drugs by gender-confused teens already taking them to...

    "Our approach to managing the borders securely and humanely even within our fundamentally broken immigration system is working. Unlawful entries between ports of entry along the southwest border have consistently decreased by more than half compared to the peak before the end of Title 42.” Thus proclaimed Alejandro Mayorkas, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), in his testimony to the House Judiciary Committee on July 26. How did Mayorkas get unlawful entries to decrease by “more than half”? Simply by rerouting the flow, by figuring out “legal” ways to funnel many migrants through ports of entry, so they...

    James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal ^ | July 31, 2023 | Matthew G. Andersson
    Law schools began as trade schools, training future lawyers to sell legal services as licensed providers. Modern law schools, however, have increasingly adopted the routines of political institutions. Even at more practical regional schools, the effect can be insidious, as faculty bring with them a progressive bias from their extensive academic exposure. Sometimes, this ideological emphasis is subtle and difficult to detect, because it can be integrated into the basic framework of how law is taught. At other times, the effect of ideological preoccupation in the legal academy is observable in how law students behave. Recent dramatic disruptions in such...

    Former president Barack Obama said Thursday on CNN’s “News Central” that former President Donald Trump’s indictment upheld the idea that “nobody is above the law.” Amanpour said, “The spectacle of a former president being federally indicted. How is the rest of the world, the democratic world, maybe even the non-democratic world meant to interpret that indictment and indeed the fact that a federal indictee is running, is able to run for the highest office in the land, maybe even the world?”

    OSLO, June 19 (Reuters) - Large and mid-size private firms in Norway must have boards comprising at least 40% women, Norway's government proposed in a bill on Monday, in a further push to break the glass ceiling preventing women from reaching top positions. The Nordic country was the first in the world to introduce a 40% gender quota on the boards of listed companies, in 2005, kick-starting an international push to force companies to have more women on boards. In December, Norway's government proposed an extension of its quota law to apply to large private companies. On Monday, it said...

    A federal judge has created a preliminary injunction which prevents the city of Seattle from enforcing the law against graffiti and misdemeanor property destruction. The SPD released a statement today.Late yesterday afternoon, SPD received an order from a US District Court judge that enjoined, in full, enforcement of SMC 12A.080.020 – the City’s misdemeanor property destruction law. This means that until further order of the Court, SPD cannot take action on damage to property under this law. This is not a matter within SPD or City discretion; we are bound by the court order as it is written.We understand and...
