Today is like Christmas Day for Governor Gavin Newsom (D-CA) and the Progressives, who must have been giddy with anticipation last night. If it is January 1, it must be the signing day of head-shaking bills in California. If “as goes California, so goes the country” is correct. God save us all.
Newsom signed five WOKE new laws into effect today. The signing ceremony is a New Year’s Day tradition in California, where common sense and sound governing retired long ago. California is the land of homeless encampments, proposed reparations for black descendants of slaves, sanctuary cities, and no cash bail. California has become a dangerous and expensive state leading to an exodus of people and businesses. That is not a concern of Progressives. Let’s take a look at the five new bills of 2023.
The first was signed in September, but takes effect today. SB107 makes California a sanctuary state for transgender kids. It will protect the use of drugs or surgery to provide “gender-affirming care” to kids who travel to California from states that have restricted allowing minors to receive the life-alternating surgery.
Sen. Scott Weiner (D-Calif) said that the bill offers “refuge” to trans minors and their families “if they’re being criminalized in their home states.”
We know from the midterms how important abortion rights are to Democrats. SB 1375 will allow nurses to perform abortions without the help of a medical licensed doctor, which was passed alongside a referendum guaranteeing the right to abortion and contraception.
Under the new law, nurses will be able to perform the procedure without a doctor supervising in the first trimester of pregnancy.
The third law that goes into effect on the first, is a Covid misinformation law. Signed in September, the law will require medical licensing boards in the state of California to take disciplinary action against doctors who are involved with the “dissemination of misinformation or disinformation related to the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, or ‘COVID-19’. It is apparently up to the state to determine fact or fiction.
Additionally, Newsom signed a law that decriminalizes jaywalking because of “racism.” Titled “Freedom to Walk Act,” the law will prevent law enforcement from stopping people who are crossing the street not at a crosswalk unless they are in visible danger. The law claims that jaywalking is a racist crime because it is enforced unfairly in “communities of color” where people apparently cannot afford to pay the fines.
The fifth law, which is currently on hold by the courts, is state control of fast-food restaurants. The law would create a ten-member politburo, aka the Fast Food Council, which would serve for ten years,” allowing them to set wages and working conditions for the fast food industry. After a group of restaurants collected petition signatures against the law sued, the law was put on hold.
None of these laws serve the needs of the majority of California residents. They cater to special interest groups or strengthen government power over people. These actions by Gavin Newsom have to be broadcast loud and clear. Newsom is considered one of the front-runners for 2024 should Biden not run. Whether as Mayor of San Francisco or Governor of California, he has proven himself to be a highly Progressive politician and would be a detriment to the country if he gets near the Oval Office. We have to ensure he gets nowhere near D.C.
