IS ARMANDO VILLALOBOS THE SCAPEGOAT FOR AN INSTITUTION OF CORRUPTION THE FBI HAS NO DESIRE TO CLEAN UP?  I SAY YES

There is a side of me which feels Armando is holding back on talking out of fear for himself and his family.  Something is not right here.

Way long before Armando Villalobos became District Attorney, the Texas legislature had to amend the law concerning venue because of the institutionalized corruption in the Cameron county courts, and among its lawyers. In part this is how our esteemed mayor, Tony Martinez made his fortune. Venue is where you may file a lawsuit. Under the old venue statute if a trucking company for example had a drunk driver kill someone in Dallas, they could file the lawsuit in Cameron county if that same trucking company did business in Cameron county. The same for a medical device for example - if a person became injured in Houston for example because of a defective device, and the company also sold the device in Cameron county, the company could be sued in Cameron county.

Why did the plaintiff's lawyers look for any basis at all to file in Cameron county?  Because our judges were bought and paid for - 100%.  The law changed and the practice stopped.

Armando Villalobos chose his conduct.  He walked into a legal profession which in Texas celebrates its institutionalized corruption as a birthright of the attorneys.  Only those who seek to stop it are punished, until it becomes something for the press. Then all of a sudden the State Bar finds god, and law enforcement feigns interest.

I am not apologizing for Armando Villalobos - I am  telling you the biggest of the big are still operating and law enforcement is turning a blind eye to what is happening.  Armando Villalobos is a smoke and mirrors game being played by the FBI and DOJ.  Do not feel safe in your homes because you are not.

Riddle me this - in Armando's case the illegal use of forfeiture procedures to secure money for his office formed a basis for part of his conviction.  The DOJ and FBI went after the small time drug dealers while intentionally turning a blind eye to James Dannebaum.

Why has District Attorney Saenz not sought any forfeiture actions against Oscar de la Fuente - the same Oscar de la Fuente who gave Saenz money for his campaign.  The same Oscar de la Fuente who Judge Hanen found overwhelming evidence of guilt?  The system remains very dirty - only the scapegoat was sent away while the head of the snake continues to operate in open view of the FBI and DOJ.

James Dannenbaum's firm paid one million dollars in forfeiture to DA Villalobos office in exchange for all criminal claims being dropped.  Click for Original Agreement.  By law the Brownsville Navigation District was to be notified of the deal and it was not.  Carlos Masso and Martin Arambula both said no big deal and allowed the taxpayers to be left holding the bonds to be paid with property taxes, while Armando Villalobos got the million dollars for his office.  James Dannebaum and his firm walked.

How is it this was not investigated?  It is not complex.  Nearly from day one the case was taken from the US Attorney for the Southern District and given to the US Attorney for the Western District.  Robert Pitman is a hack US Attorney hand picked by John Cornyn to insure Republican interests such as James Dannenbaum were protected.  This is such an easy issue for the Democrat running against John Corning to make, but will not because the institutionalized corruption crosses over into the Democratic Party, so Candidate David Alameel will remain silent. If David Alameel would just raise the issue he would become the next Senator from Texas.  The national Democratic Committee can take down Senator John Cornyn and they will not because any real investigation will also include Democrats.

I am not saying Armando Villalobos should not do 13 years, I am saying he is nothing more than the baby fox who got into the hen house, while the DOJ and FBI intentionally allowed the papa fox to walk.  We are not safe - the worst of the worst are still out there walking around free because we were made to believe Armando Villalobos  was the head of the snake - he was barely near the tale.  This part of the US Attorney' argument was 100% bogus.

Judge Hanen admonished Villalobos he better do what ever he is going to do before Judge Hanen loses jurisdiction - although I suspect the parties can agree to a remand at a later date to redo sentencing based on a deal Villalobos' cuts. 

I think last week was nothing more than the DOJ saying - we are done talking - time for you to go to jail.  They want Gilberto Hinojosa and other key Democrats - its political - and not based on some altruistic desire to bring justice to the people of Cameron county.  I say to Armando - through your mother tell the world the truth - begin with Dannenbaum.  Double jeopardy has attached.  If you must serve 13 years you need to take down the DOJ and FBI with you.  It may take a couple of years, but you will walk free a lot sooner than 13 years - because once the truth comes out your conviction will be voided as corrupted by the DOJ and FBI.

Armando, redeem yourself in the eyes of the people and your children - you have one chance - do it while you still can-  Get your hearing before Judge Hanen and put the truth on the record and watch the DOJ and FBI squirm.  if anyone will allow you to speak your mind and create a record it is Judge Hanen.

Question, didn't Sen. Eddie Lucio bring in James D to the Brownsville Port bridge?

I believe he was involved - and if you think I am over stating what is happening - read AUSA Surovic's brief to the court as to why he wants to keep Armando in jail pending appeal - [1] to keep him silent and [2] so he cannot cut deals with ADA's in Cameron county and further taint the system

The system has always been corrupt in CC however, AV took it to a new level and didn't control his big mouth bail bonds buddies that circumvented the courts altogether and we're fixing DUI's and the like for what seemed like set fees for his buds. This could only go on for so long before it would lead to a more detailed investigation of his office. His investigators had absolutely free reign so he could act like he didn't know what was going on with them. Hear, Speak and see no evil. These guys even went as far as to set people up and attack political enemies just like the current admin is doing. Look into why some of his investigators were let go and you'll be surprised to find out how he pushed them aside when they went overboard and he wanted distance. A couple of them should be in federal prison. This charade couldn't continue at that pace.
Politics is set up to inherently fail. PACs buy influence, so do most major contributors in state and federal races including the presidency. YOu buy a VERY expensive plate to a Presidential dinner to have access to the his office and you usually have an agenda. Then the elected official helps out his friends...who else? It's been this way since the beginning of time. It becomes illegal when you sell justice, bid rig and attack the enemies of yours and your friends. Until ALL contributions are capped and fully accounted for this will never change.

On the do not post - I have no idea who you are. My readers have no way of tracing you. Some of you are confused about the IP address issue. Federal and state agencies include their name with their IP Address - a lot of businesses also do the same. The average joe is 100% protected against being ID, unless they post a defamatory statement which I would not let through anyway.

People are fearing this IP address issue for nothing. Unless you are posting defamatory statements you are 100% protected in terms of your privacy.

The only way I pay to ID an IP address is when I get a threat - trust me I have no interest in knowing who is and who is not posting.

Now to answer your question - there is a formal criminal complaint pending on the very issue against Saenz and both Yolanda and Alex Begum. the complaint has not been rejected as of this time
