Insanity: Proposed California Law Could Ban Skittles, Campbell’s Soup, and Jelly Beans
California State lawmakers are considering legislation which could ban the sale of multiple candies such as Skittles, Sour Patch Kids, and jelly beans. Other foods such as Campbell’s Soup would be face possible bans as well.
Forget about the homelessness crisis and skyrocketing crime which are causing endless misery for the state’s residents. The most immediate threats to Californians according to the state politicians are candy and soup.
The bill, which was introduced far-left Democrat Assemblyman Jesse Gabriel, targets the following five additives: propylparaben, red dye 3, brominated vegetable oil, potassium bromate and titanium dioxide.
The latter three have been banned by the European Union.
Gabriel admitted that the substances were chosen because of their bans in Europe, according to the Washington Examiner.
Some studies have shown these popular food additives have been linked to cancer, DNA and organ damage.
But before people claim lawmakers are just looking out for public, notice that no one is proposing a ban on alcohol and marijuana, for example. These substances are linked to serious health problems as well.
As reported by the Daily Mail, Gabriel’s legislation would also prevent the manufacturing of food products including these chemicals in the state, even if they are sold elsewhere.
Gabriel, the “brainchild” behind the legislation, released the following statement:
Californians shouldn’t have to worry that the food they buy in their neighborhood grocery store might be full of dangerous additives or toxic chemicals.
This bill will correct for a concerning lack of federal oversight and help protect our kids, public health, and the safety of our food supply.
Of all the food additives banned is the bill, titanium dioxide is the most notable, according to Gabriel. The additive was the center of a 2022 lawsuit filed in California last year alleging the popular candy Skittles were not fit to be eaten.
Other products banned by the bill include Trident sugar-free gum and some bread products across the United States.

Read the statement below:
Josh Davis, a football player for Utah state, has been upgraded from critical to fair condition as of Friday morning, following a non-traumatic sudden cardiac arrest during Thursday’s spring practice on Merlin Olsen Field at Maverick stadium.
Davis, who is currently in the intensive care unit at McKay Dee Hospital in Ogden, has been taken off life-sustaining medical devices and is breathing on his own.
Davis, a redshirt freshman wide receiver from Carlsbad, California, collapsed during practice on Thursday and was immediately treated by USU’s athletic training staff, led by Mike Williams, associate athletics Director for sports medicine, followed by emergency medical personnel, who transported him to Logan regional hospital.
Davis received initial critical treatment and was stabilized at Logan regional hospital before being transported to McKay-Dee Hospital, where their critical care team continued treatment with therapeutic hypothermia to lower the body temperature to preserve his neurological function.
Davis’ parents, Matt and Chrissy, arrived in Utah Thursday evening, and were met at the hospital by Utah State team physician Dr. David G. Liddle, interim athletic director Jerry Bovee, head football coach Blake Anderson, and athletic trainer Kendra Gilmore.

He added, “The training staff absolutely saved his life. No hesitation at all. Miracle.”
Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear Vetoes Bill to Ban Minors From Sex Change Surgeries and Hormones
Kentucky’s Democrat Governor Andy Beshear has vetoed a bill banning minors from receiving sex change surgeries and hormones.
Doctors who have already prescribed children puberty blockers or hormones will have to cease doing so or taper them off if stopping abruptly could harm them.
The legislation, SB 150, bans discussion of sexual orientation and gender identity in schools, requires students to use bathrooms intended for their biological sex, and dictates that educators must notify students’ parents when and if they receive any mental health services related to sexuality.
Fortunately, the bill had passed the state’s Republican-led House with a veto-proof majority, so the governor will likely be overridden next week.
“In Kentucky, the expanded version that reached Beshear’s desk was rushed through both legislative chambers in a matter of hours March 16 before lawmakers began an extended break. The fast-track work enabled lawmakers to retain their ability to override the governor’s veto. The action triggered outrage among opponents unable to stop the legislation,” CBS News reports.
In his statement about the veto, Beshear said that the legislation allows “too much government interference in personal healthcare issues and rips away the freedom of parents to make medical decisions for their children.”
The governor also claimed that not sterilizing or mutilating physically healthy minors could cause an uptick in suicide.
“My faith teaches me that all children are children of God and Senate Bill 150 will endanger the children of Kentucky,” Beshear said.
“Andy Beshear thinks it’s okay for children to have access to life-altering sex change surgery and drugs before they turn 18,” said Sean Southard, a spokesman for the Kentucky Republican Party, according to a report from ABC News. “Today, he revealed how radical he truly is.”
The American Civil Liberties Union of Kentucky has already threatened a lawsuit when the bill becomes law.
“Governor Beshear has demonstrated his commitments to protect Kentucky parents’ rights to raise their children as they see fit, and to keep medical decisions where they belong: between providers and patients,” wrote the ACLU Kentucky in a statement. “The adults in the General Assembly should focus on what students, teachers, and schools really need, rather than single out vulnerable children to score cheap political points. ”
Dopey Radical Cori Bush Says She Won’t ‘Succumb to the Nihilist, Insurrectionist View of the Second Amendment’ (VIDEO)
Noted Constitutional scholar, Rep. Cori Bush of Missouri, recently offered some remarks on the Second Amendment that were not only insulting but appeared completely scripted.
It’s amazing to hear a member of Congress speak this way about an amendment to the Constitution that she is sworn to uphold and protect.
Cori also spends hundreds of thousands a year on her own armed security — who happens to be her husband!
Then again, Cori is a member of the squad.
WATCH: Cori Bush Wants Us to Know She Won’t ‘Succumb to the Nihilist, Insurrectionist View of the 2nd Amendment,’ America
Oh, please. I’ll bet you a dollar that Missouri Democrat Rep. Cori Bush could no more define “nihilist,” let alone spell it, than she could teach a pigeon to spell “gun grabber.” Nonetheless, the “noted Constitutional scholar” [ahem] wants us to know where we can stick the Second Amendment, and it’s not in her inbox.
Although, it was delightful how Bush’s handlers included “insurrectionist” in her prattling little diatribe…
First, there’s no such thing as an “assault rifle,” so since they don’t exist, you can’t ban them, Congresswoman. Second, of course your threat requires taking away the rights of people to bear arms — the arms that Democrats don’t want law-abiding Americans to own, or even more ominous, the arms that Democrats don’t think Americans need — which is none of their damn business.
Okay, back to the babble — and my favorite part.
We will not succumb to the nihilist, insurrectionist view of the Second Amendment. We will not allow the apologists for gun violence to win. We will double down on a public health response to the public health emergency that is gun violence in our country. And together, we will end this crisis once and for all.
Here’s the video:
