WE MUST FIGHT THEM BY EXPOSING THEIR WORDS, AND NOT BY REMOVING STATUTES

Removing a statute will do nothing to educate people on the danger these non-humans represent.  Here is a fact the Alt anti-Fact fake liberals hate.  It was our Founding Fathers who we celebrate who put in the Constitution that blacks were only 3/5ths of a person.  This provision was included at the demand of the northern colonies.  The southern colonies wanted them counted as 100% persons.  The north wanted to deny the south equal representation and an equal share of federal revenues.  

In Dred Scott the Chief Justice was bound by what was in the Constitution as to the 3/5ths rule and for following the the clear language in the Constitution as written by the northern colonies, his statute was removed last night.

I agree the Dred Scott opinion is shocking.  But why is the Chief Justice blamed and not the Founding Fathers of the northern colonies?  I will be laughed out of town if I were to suggest we  remove all of the statutes of the Founding Fathers who supported the 3/5ths rule.

What angers me so much is our selective indignation as to who we will hold accountable for a history created by our Founding Fathers, many of whom were slave holders.

My issue is, lets make this video go viral so people see the truth by the words of these non-humans and get away from the statutes.

6 MORE SENATE VOTES, AND THERE WILL BE ENOUGH TO VOTE FOR REMOVAL OF TRUMP

Impeachment is a two step process.  First the House must draw up Articles of Impeachment and send them to the Senate for trial.  No one is suggesting we are even close to the House drawing up the Articles of Impeachment.  But according to Newsweek 12 Republican Senators are hinting if the evidence is there they will vote for conviction on the Article of Impeachment.

"Following impeachment in the House, a trial takes place in the Senate. Conviction requires two-thirds of the Senate and by my count there are already twelve senators who have shown a willingness to take on the president when they believe he is in the wrong.

If you add that to the forty-eight Democrats in the Senate (who have shown no inclination to work with this President), Donald Trump could be six votes away from conviction in the Senate."
Now do I think it will happen.  No. Personally, I think it would be bad for the nation and the world for the US to remove a president for being an ass and a bigot. 
But as the numbers move more and more, the Republican Congress is going to have to move forward in compromise with the Democrats, and this will be good. The president will be powerless for all practical purposes.  If this becomes a reality, Trump will resign rather than being a body filling a seat in the Oval Office.
The best way to rid this country of Trump is to use his weakness against him, namely his ego.

IT IS TIME WE CHANGE THE NAME OF THE CAPITAL OF TEXAS

I do not care what you call yourself, if you are advocating for the violent overthrow of our country, civil unrest, or illegally stock piling weapons, I fear you and want you in jail.  The words of Stephen F. Austin justified the endless lynching of black men.  What kind of state celebrates such a man.  It is not the statute which offends, it is his words.

These words were said by the Father of Texas long before the Civil War. They have nothing to do with the confederacy. They emulate the pure and unadulterated hate used throughout this country for centuries, including the north. They are the justification for lynching black men. It was not too long ago a black man was lynched in East Texas, where Stephen F. Austin university is based. This is pure hate with no excuses. Will Texas change the name of its capital? No. Will they change the name of the university? No. Will the Democrats speak up on the issue? No. But odd, we ignore words of such extreme ignorance and hate, but a mere statute is what really offends. I am ashamed of Texas and have been for a long time.

My time in Texas is very short.  Once my brother and Buster are gone, I am gone.  I am looking at being an ex patriot in Peru or Ecuador, or a resident of Raleigh Durham. 

Now I challenge my readers to send this to Oliviera, and the Lucios and see what they say.  Hell even Congressman vela the fake Democrat will ignore it.  He would prefer these words go unchallenged than offend the sensibilities of the ignorant.

i researched this quote and found it in many sources.  Fake memes are a dime a dozen which is why I always verify the quote before I share or create one.

AFTER INVESTMENT IN ENERGY EFFICIENCY, BPUB BILL DOWN $80, FROM THIS TIME LAST YEAR

When people looking to buy a home come to me for help, I always tell them to tell the sellers you want to see the BPUB bills from June through September.  That house next door may be a bit more expensive but if their BPUB bill is a $100-$200 less a month, it is actually cheaper.

I will note the energy surcharge is no longer on the bill.  So that would be part of my savings.

CORRECTION:

When I started the above sentence, I was going to complain about the energy surcharge and then I thought I better go back and check the bill.  I did not see the energy surcharge which was added when the cost of fuel was over the top, as opposed to the now record lows.  So it occurred to me maybe it is in the part on the electric summary.  There it was $56.53. This is an outright theft by BPUB.  The reason given to the city commission to justify the surcharge no longer exists.  So why do we pay it?  Theft.

HOW AN ALL AMERICAN EVIL HAS FLIPPED POLITICS ON SOCIAL ISSUES - THE BATHROOM BILL- AND ON TRUMP

Trump has ended most of his councils because no one will serve.  The resignations were coming so fast he could not keep up.  The number of Republicans fleeing Trump has reached a number I have lost count.  Former Presidents Bush I and Bush II have issued a joint statement on the hate issue implying Trump has failed the nation.

Generals have publicly come out and made clear there is no room for hate.  They will never support Trump on removing Transgender soldiers.  The military needs unity to work not division, something lost on Trump.

Corporations are pushing money dependent Republicans away from Trump.  The midterms are coming with many Republican districts up in the air because of court rulings.  The Republicans are cornered.

Section 4 of the 25th Amendment should not be treated lightly.  I have not done a count but I am assuming maybe a 1/3 of the Republicans along with all Democrats can remove the president in the two step process which seems an impossibility.

If a real movement emerges and the numbers are close many Republicans will look to corporate American and their money and wishes and do as they are told.

It just intrigues me how this all American evil relationship between corporations and government is now working to stand with the American people, well except with deregulation and other such matters.

CORPORATE PROFIT DECIDES TEXAS BATHROOM BILL - IT FAILS AGAIN

"A special legislative session in Texas drew to a close late Tuesday without passing a bill to limit transgender people's access to bathrooms. The now-dead bill had the support of the state's governor and Senate, but was opposed by powerful business interests and the Republican House Speaker."

I think sooner than later the radical right, especially the religious right, will die.  The Republicans need corporate money to survive.  So in the case of the bathroom bill, the corporations won and the Bill died.  

Corporations care more about profits than who uses which bathroom.  Maybe now some city in Texas will have a chance at the new Toyota plant.  Now Brownsville will not be in the mix because we have no leadership who understands you cannot recruit manufacturing jobs without trained workers.  Brownsville is a perfect fit for Toyota.  We can ship the cars/trucks on barges up to Chicago and elsewhere.  We have rail and an interstate highway.  But we have no leadership.

I VOTE ELOTE MAN - OUR PRIORITIES ARE ALL WRONG - WE MUST END HOME GROWN TERRORISM

I do not care if you are ALT Left or ALT Right or a clown, if you are breaking the law in a way which substantively hurts society, and not merely being a refugee, or seeking to overthrow our country I want you in jail.  For the latter I want life in prison without the possibility of parole.

EAT CORN AND MAKE AMERICAN GREAT AGAIN




SUSAN BRO MOTHER TO HEATHER HEYER WHO DIED IN VIRGINIA SHOWS WHAT IT REALLY MEANS TO BE A PATRIOTIC AMERICAN

Heather Heyer's mother, a true American who speaks for her daughter. You will never convince me the Alt Left was 100% innocent in the mayhem. I am not smart enough to view all of the video and assess % of blame, but I will concede the White Supremacits appear to be the primary agitators. 

But listen to this beautiful women. She actually has empathy for the mother of the man who killed her daughter. This is who we need to become as a nation. Her daughter was an innocent victim for her empathy for the other side by asking, why? instead of just yelling. Yelling solves nothing. Heather Heyer and her mom are the kind of Americans we need to move forward and end hate. In my book Heather Heyer and her mom Susan Bro are true American heroes. Stop yelling, ask questions, and try to get educated.

THE CANDIDATE'S FOLLY WITH THE BLOGS

First the readership.  When someone Google's a subject and by chance they are connected to your blog, they are not a reader.  They are someone doing research who by chance came onto your blog through a google search.  While the BV gets a lot of hits from outside the US and one time hits from other states, the BV  does not consider those page views.  They are like false positives.  The BV has three regular readers popping up from other countries.  I suspect they are from Brownsville working or studying abroad and are just trying to keep up with the local scene.  The rest the BV does not count as readers. No honest blogger posts page views as evidence of readership.  I have a service which breaks down my readership by page views and individual IP hits.  IP hits are only counted once as individual readers, but the number of times that IP address hits the BV on any given day is recorded in the data I receive.  This is how I know the same people view the BV as many as 4-10 times a day.

My data shows most readers click on the BV 4-10 times a day.  Those will show as  page views, when in fact it is a lot lower as to individuals actually looking at the BV.  My individual hits are smaller than my page views.

Even on individual hits you cannot rely on that data. People look at the BV at work, on their phone and at home.  Each will record as an individual hit because of different IP addresses, but they are the same person looking at the BV from different mediums.

So when someone says they have 4000 page views, that by itself is a deception to play candidates into a major folly and for money. Once you divide the 4000 by the average number of times individuals look at the page, and minus the false positive individual page hits by people who accidentally clicked on the blog based on a google search, you are down to maybe 300-500 actual people reading the blog, and then how many are trolls who do not even vote?

ALEX DOMINGUEZ HAS MADE A MESS FOR HIMSELF

By paying for publicity on a blog while Rigo Bocanegra appears to be running for Alex Dominguez's elective office, Alex has made a folly of his campaign to the extent he even has one.

No one at this time has the money or skill set to beat Rene Oliviera.  A handful of trolls posting vulgarities against Rene on blogs which for all practical purposes do not exist as far as the voters of Cameron County know, does nothing to help Alex.  Bought and paid for publicity diminishes Alex's credibility while his hack approves the vulgarities against Rene without proof.  I am speaking to the vulgarities and not all of the comments.  Some are actually true and have been proven as same.

The reality is no one knows what position Alex is running for, and Rigo Bocanegra polluting the district with his signs is only adding more confusion to the mess.  Alex Dominguez's folly in this campaign will cost him elective office unless everyone running for his position withdraws, or Rene Oliviera retires.

CARLOS CASCOS- POLITICS MAKES STRANGE BEDFELLOWS

Because I actually meet with people and gather first hand information, I need not speculate about why Carlos Cascos is speaking out on issues of the day.

First as to Carlos becoming as Democrat again, Carlos told me to my face he would never kiss the ring of Gilberto Hinojosa, so I do not see them ever working together since Gilbert is the State Party Chair of the Democratic Party.  But I will say politics makes strange bedfellows.  But given the fact at this late stage Cascos cannot raise the money to run against Governor Abbott, such claims are the worst form of unsubstantiated rumors I have seen.

Now while this is just my speculation I could see Cascos running against Filamon Vela, but I am not saying he is, or speculating.  I am just putting out a scenario and how it would work..  He can run as a Republican and win if the Republicans come to his aid.  This is how such campaigns work.  Cascos puts his name out their on issues important to Vela's Congressional District.  He is creating name recognition and speaking to issues.

The Party money people will investigate Cascos chances of beating Vela.  If they conclude Vela can be beat by Cascos, the money will flow.  Unlike Dominguez Cascos has strong ties at the state level.

So for now, he can just speak to issues without running for anything. If he can prove his name has catched on in Vela's district and he can win, Republican money will flow his way.  He is not the first Republican County Judge who went on to Secretary of State to be currently speaking to important issues to the border area without actually running for anything.

The Honorable former US Ambassador to Mexico, Antonio Garza, a very moderate Republican speaks every day through news letters and oped pieces in many countries concerning any number of issues impacting the border, such as the wall, trade, NAFTA etc. and no one would ever speculate he is running for anything.

WHO REMEMBERS OKLAHOMA?

Does any one remember Oklahoma? We did nothing about that domestic terrorism. 165 dead including 15 children. We have done nothing about the attacks on Muslims, blacks, and innocent black children killed in their beds. We have done nothing about the murder of transgender Americans. 

Trump and Texas Governor Abbott are promoting hate against the LGBTQ community. But someone raises the Nazi flag and now it matters? Stop with the false indignation and really care. It is truly a myth the people care about hate. In Spanish we say cuando me convience - basically when it suits me, or is convenient for me

. These hatemongers are building their militias with lots of guns, and Trump and the Republicans want a worthless wall. Read the Preamble or Our Constitution and tell me we are not a Failed State wherein the government no longer meets its most basic function. .

 "We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

In three days Virginia will be yesterdays news, just like Oklahoma. You either believe in fighting for liberty and equality full time or do not believe in it at all.


TRUMP MOCKS ONLY BLACK PERSON ON HIS MANUFACTURING COUNCIL AFTER HE RESIGNS OVER TRUMP'S REFUSAL TO DENOUNCE WHITE SUPREMACISTS

In response, Mr Trump tweeted that Mr Frazier would now have "more time to lower rip off drug prices".

Where is the indignation by the fake Republican Prophets and fake press for that matter who denounced Trump for not denouncing the White Supremacists? How is this attack on Merck CEO Frazier not an attack on a black man the same as White Supremacists attacking blacks. The Republicans are dead silent. Trump's response to the attacks on his failure to denounce White Supremacists is to mock a black CEO.  Where is the outrage by the press for this obvious correlation between the two? Dead silent.
