Please help Project Pajamas to continue its mission: distributing brand new PJs to every child needing sheltering in Santa Cruz County. These kids, infant to age 18, need our love and support.
In June 2018, David Mackereth, a British medical doctor and disability assessor, was effectively forced out of his job for disagreeing with transgender identity. He cited his Christian belief in Genesis 1:27, that God created humans male and female, along with basic genetics. He sued his former employer, the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP), claiming discrimination for his beliefs. Tragically, the employment tribunal ruled that he was not discriminated against, while actively demonizing — if not outlawing — his beliefs.
In a decision handed down Wednesday, the court ruled that Mackereth’s disagreement with transgender ideology is “incompatible with human dignity.”
“Lack of belief in transgenderism and conscientious objection to transgenderism in our judgment are incompatible with human dignity and conflict with the fundamental rights of others, specifically here, transgender individuals,” the judges wrote. “In our judgment, refusing to refer to a transgender person by his/her/their birth sex, or relevant pronouns, titles or styles would constitute unlawful discrimination or harassment.”
Ironically, the judges claimed to be upholding religious freedom.

To say someone, i.e. Rep. Adam Schiff, is “shifty” is anti semetic? So says Rep. Ocasio-Cortez and other members of her “squad”.
Rep. Ocasio-Cortez responded to President Trump who posted a video showing Lyin’ Shifty Schiff aka Adam Schiff as pinocchio. With each “lie” Adam Schiff’s “nose” gets longer and longer.
Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez accused President Donald Trump of antisemitism for mocking Rep. Adam Schiff.
Ocasio-Cortez made the claim while linking to an Intercept article in which the author accused the president of antisemitism for calling the freshman lawmaker and her “squad” (who are not Jewish), Rep. Jerry Nadler, and Schiff “Do Nothing Democrat Savages.”
The article also claims that the nickname “shifty Schiff,” given to him by President Trump following his massive lies involving the Ukranian phone call “whistleblower,” is an antisemitic attack.
“Understand that Trump is engaged in deliberate, atrocious, targeted antisemitism towards Chairman Schiff. Then ask yourself why no one cares to denounce it – esp when his accusation of it towards others drove full news cycles earlier this year,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.
“It’s wrong. It’s harmful. And his bigotry is reflective of the white supremacist base he relies on for political gain,” Ocasio-Cortez continued.
The article claims that “the stereotype of Jews as ‘shifty,’ the suggestion that they are sneaky and manipulative, has a long and ignominious history. Trump — who ‘often plays on well-worn caricatures about cleverness, deviousness, and physical weakness’ when discussing Jews, to quote Peter Beinart — knows what he is doing when he gives Schiff this particular nickname; it is no accident or coincidence.”
The accusation is part of a clear trend in which Ocasio-Cortez and other members of the Democrat Party attack President Trump relentlessly and then cry victim when he responds. It’s reminiscent of Twitter trolls who tweet terrible things at you for days and then cry bullying when you’ve finally had enough and respond.
President Trump’s daughter, who he works closely with in the White House, is Jewish, as are his grandchildren. He has been called the most “pro-Israel president ever” by many.
Firenze Sage Another cogent argument from college educated kindergartners.
Rugby referees in the UK would rather quit their jobs rather than watch male players who identify as females injure and maim actual female players. The Sunday Times reported that the fear of “being sued as more men claim to be women join the women’s leagues and end up hurting natural-born female contestants with their strength and speed” has led to their decision to resign rather than take the liability.
The refs also report that they have been warned not to question even bearded men for fear of being seen as non-inclusive. Women’s rugby does have a testosterone limit, but instead of testing the participants, refs are told to take the transgender athletes at their word.
Firenze Sage: This is like the circus with the bearded ladies. Woman’s movement –Move!!
Section 1252(c) of the “Aliens and Nationality” laws is titled: “Authorizing State and local law enforcement officials to arrest and detain certain illegal aliens.” The section authorizes state and local law enforcement officials “to arrest and detain an individual who— (1) is an alien illegally present in the United States; and (2) has previously been convicted of a felony in the United States and deported or left the United States after such conviction.”
But in OZ:The city of New York’s Commission on Human Rights has decided that illegal aliens need more protection from the law than American citizens. So they passed an ordinance that not only makes it illegal to threaten to call immigration authorities on a suspected illegal, but you could be fined $250,000 just for saying “illegal alien.”
This is not The Onion.
You can call an American anything you want — any vile, vulgar, obscenity in the book — and not be punished for it. This ordinance would seem to grant extraordinary protections to those in the United States illegally.
What’s the fall out from years and years of Democrat Party policies on Santa Cruz and Watsonville, CA?
Some current 2019 impressions:
Kids kill other kids in Watsonville, CA. Take a look at crime statistics. Because Watsonville gang members routinely target younger kids, parents keep children inside their homes. Kids are not allowed to ‘hang out’ in their front yards in Watsonville, CA. So parents tell me.
North County Santa Cruz CA frequently ignores South County Watsonville CA issues. Watsonville and Santa Cruz are two different worlds joined by Highway 1.
Psychotic adults hang out and talk in loud voices to themselves at the McDonalds Restaurant on Ocean Street in Santa Cruz. The Watsonvile McDonalds are much more family centered and much cleaner.
Two ‘more than typical’ Progressives city officials face probable recall by 8000+ Santa Cruz City voters. The recall effort states that these two public officials ignored numerous public safety issues (needles, human feces and violence) posed by the Ross St encampment. And other issues. Click the recall effort link for more information.
‘Free’ Santa Cruz beaches are far dirtier than the CA County managed beaches which you pay to enter.
Idle adults hang out in droves near the Santa Cruz COSCO, close to the Ribele Family Shelter Building located at Highway 1 and River St. It does not ‘feel safe’ to drive near by.
Oh, my …… Oh my ….
There’s more control by city government of ‘the little things’ — such as can a business have a sign or an awning? — than the ‘big picture’ i.e, how can we work with the community to reduce violent crime and improve public safety?
Opps!!! Perhaps it’s time for a change from the Democrats and their policies?
Best soft taco in Watsonville, CA? D’La Colmena sells three soft tacos for $5. Try the lengua (tongue). Yum! Delicious!
Cheap! Lots of lime! There’s several different kinds of soft tacos. Three soft tacos for $5 is a new item.
D’La Colmena Market & Catering is located at 129 West Lake Ave., Watsonville, CA
More than 40 years in business, E’La Colmena is run as a father-son team by Adrian Gonzalez who purchased it from his father Manuel Gonzalez. Some employees have stayed more than 20 years. One more than 30 years.
“For Glover, the substantiated complaint, as described by hired consultant Joe Rose, was that Glover violated the city’s Respectful Workplace Conduct Policy when addressing Meyers Feb. 1 about shared conference room scheduling. According to Rose’s report, the timing of Glover’s “needlessly and unjustifiably antagonistic” response to Meyers’ overstaying her allotted time in a city conference room was “humiliating and embarrassing” to Meyers because it occurred in the presence of “important community partners.”
Glover responded in his Facebook post to the public group SCCCP – Santa Cruz and Central Coast Politics, saying, “the substantiated complaint was “due to a communication issue combined with the mishandling of the conflict by the other party involved as they did not come to speak to me first before filing a complaint.”
To be fair, let’s look at the report filed by consultant Joe Rose. Let the public read the report for themselves.
So who’s who in the Santa Cruz Sentinel article? The paper wrongly printed Santa Cruz Councilman Glover with Krohn’s face and Councilman Krohn with Glover’s face.
Glover is Afro-American, not Caucasian as portrayed in the Santa Cruz Sentinel. . Opps! Pictures are worth a thousand words.
So here’s an example of “wrong news” by our local paper.
