Democrats in Virginia may override local zoning to bring high-density housing, including public housing, to every neighborhood statewide — whether residents want it or not.
The measure could quickly transform the suburban lifestyle enjoyed by millions, permitting duplexes to be built on suburban lots in neighborhoods previously consisting of quiet streets and open green spaces. Proponents of “upzoning” say the changes are necessary because suburbs are bastions of segregation and elitism, as well as bad for the environment.
The move, which aims to provide “affordable housing,” might be fiercely opposed by local officials throughout the state, who have deliberately created and preserved neighborhoods with particular character — some dense and walkable, others semi-rural and private — to accommodate people’s various preferences.

The University of Virginia canceled the 21-gun salute portion of its annual Veterans Day ceremony – citing gun violence.
James Ryan, the university’s president, posted a statement on Facebook explaining that there were concerns about firing weapons on school property in light of recent school shootings.
He said there were two specific reasons.
“First, to minimize disruptions to classes, given that this event is located at the juncture of four primary academic buildings and is held at a time that classes are in session; and second, recognizing concerns related to firing weapons on the Grounds in light of gun violence that has happened across our nation, especially on school and university campuses,” the president wrote.

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren is pledging to crack down on school choice if elected, despite the fact that she sent her own son to an elite private school, publicly available records show.
The 2020 presidential candidate’s public education plan would ban for-profit charter schools — a proposal first backed by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders — and eliminate government incentives for opening new non-profit charter schools, even though Warren has praised charter schools in the past.
“To keep our traditional public school systems strong, we must resist efforts to divert public funds out of traditional public schools,” Warren stated in her plan.
Warren has pledged to reduce education options for families, but she chose to send her son Alexander to Kirby Hall, an elite private school near Austin. Tuition for Kirby Hall’s lower and middle schools — kindergarten through eighth grade — is $14,995 for the 2019-2020 school year. A year of high school costs $17,875.

The Austin Independent School District (ISD) school board approved a radical new sex-education curriculum for grades 3-8 that encourages all kinds of sex at young ages, urges kids to join LGBT “pride” parades, and aims to redefine biological sex and erase the words “mom” and “dad” from children’s vocabulary.
More than 100 people testified against the new curriculum on Monday night, and testimony lasted until after midnight. Yet the school board unanimously approved the new curriculum.
“This vote by the Austin ISD Board sends a clear message: people of faith and traditional moral values are not welcome in Austin ISD,” David Walls, vice president of Texas Values and a parent in Austin ISD, said in a statement. “By passing this curriculum, Austin ISD has broken the sacred trust that parents put in their children’s schools. Austin ISD parents have no reason to entrust their children to a school district that weaponizes education to indoctrinate children into the LGBT political movement.”
In a document revealing the radical nature of the curriculum, Texas Values drew attention to materials for the Grades 3-5 curriculum that encourage children to abandon the terms “mother” and “father” or “mom” and “dad.”
“Use Gender Inclusive Language,” the curriculum advises teachers. “It is important to avoid terms which refer only to ‘male’ and ‘female’ identities when speaking with young children as this can limit their understanding of gender into binaries and can exclude children who may not identify within these identities. For example, when discussing family members or adults they may have in their life, try not to only use terms like ‘mom’ or ‘dad’. Try integrating words like, ‘parents’ or, ‘guardians’ to include children whose parents might not fit into ‘traditional’ concepts of family structures.”
Annrae Angel says why she — not Ari Symons — should get your vote for Santa Cruz County Superior Court Judge in 2020 elections. Egregious conduct by judge Symons running a red light is the issue, says Angel.
Attorney Annrae Angel spoke 10/30/19 at the monthly meeting of Santa Cruz Repbulicans.
Read “the facts” of the Symons case as gathered by the CA state government Commission on Judicial Performance. The Commission meets behind closed doors and allows no questioning of “the facts” before reaching their “conclusions”. Closed door proceedings without input raise multiple red flags for me.
Should you, as I do, think this Commission has overstepped it bounds, tell them what you think. See the form which you can fill out complaining about a judge. How to complain to the government entity which appears to target people wrongly? Petition your government.
Ari Symons said that she ran the red light. Think of the Simon game many people have played.
Ari Symons clicked the Red and played the game straight. ‘I did it!’ she told people immediately. Symons told co-workers the truth. She ran the red.
When someone says repeatedly that they did it, that they ran the red light and that the moving vehicle violation ticket is their –how can that be a viewed by the watch dog government entity as a ‘cover up’ or considered ‘egregious behavior’?
Rather, overall this appears to be the Democrats in Sacramento targeting an individual. Perhaps it would be better if CA was not run by the Democrats?
Per the “facts” as stated by the Commission, Ari Symons told co-workers that she ran a red light that morning. Some time later Symons wrote letters saying she was the one who ran the red light. Later, things got muddled between spouse Michael and wife Ari. Not every spouse does what the other spouse wants, correct? So says Symons concerning overall handling of the red ticket. Ari Symons made mistakes how the matter was handled. Symons has admitted her mistakes.
Aptos Psychologist: These facts and the others listed by the Commission for Judicial Performance don’t add up to “egregious conduct” by Ari Symons.
And, the CA state government should not get away with wrongful behavior. Come on, government Commission for Judicial Performance Do better! Or disband, re-group, and re-fresh your standards. Don’t target individuals. Play the game straight.
This entity. the Commission on Judicial Performance, meets in San Francisco Dec. 4-5, 2019 and Jan 29-30, 2020. Phone: 415 557-1200 FAX 415 557-1266 Three members of the Commission — Nishimura, Capozzi and Torres — can be replaced immediately as they have exceeded the number of years they can serve.
Tell our state government to add new members to the Commission on Judicial Performance who will act honestly and with integrity. Make sense?

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.

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.
