ANOTHER GREAT NIECE JUST BORN

Family is everything and mine never stops growing.

ENJOY TONIGHT, BUT REMEMBER THE POLICE WILL BE OUT IN FORCE TO PROTECT YOU, NOT TO HARASS YOU

It is okay to drink tonight, but in moderation.  My roommate is going out, but he knows to call me even at 3 a.m. to go get him. So if you are going out make sure you have someone to call to come get you.  This is what friends do.

Yesterday even though I was in a lot of pain and did not sleep the night before I just ran down the block to HEB.  I have learned walking reliefs the pain in the legs but enhances it in the lumbar.  True to myself I left my wallet on the counter so I had to go back just about the time I was getting home.

My roommate became concerned and called me to make sure I was okay. This is what friends do. I rarely drive anymore, but he was busy so I drove myself.  I was fine.  The walking is good for the pain.

My headaches seem to be under control since I have stopped wearing glasses.  They are new, but I actually see better without them.  The VA says I cannot be fitted with corrective lenses and this is the best they can do.  While in NY in March I will go to my sister's eye doctor and get properly fitted.



NEW YEARS ALOE VERA FLOWER

While trimming my palms out front this morning, I saw this and see it as a sign of a brighter tomorrow.  Brownsville has a lot of exciting things going on.  We are moving forward despite a bad County Commission and City Commission.  In terms of downtown there are a lot of great private citizens one house at a time remodelling downtown. 

My neighborhood was in trouble.  About 8 years ago people started buying up the houses in need of major repairs and now those of us who got in early have a nifty profit on our homes if we choose to sell.  Cowen Terrance remains a good investment, and many of the homes are on a 1/4 acre or on a resaca.

On the corner behind the Hernandez business, right on the feeder road was an old warehouse for a furniture store that had become a blight on the area.  It is nearly remodelled and is going to make the area look a lot better, especially from the highway.

More and more strip store property owners are investing in remodelling the facade of the building thereby making their area look new and renovated.

New apartment and housing construction is everywhere.  The city is moving forward despite its inept city commission. 

The unemployment situation goes directly to BISD.  There are an abundant of jobs available in Brownsville, but if you do not have at least a GED, you will not be considered for the job. 

I am doing my best in helping with one on one preparation on the computer in my home to train these people to take the GED, and secure them accommodation to take the test.  My fee, zero.  The GED programs in Brownsville are doing nothing to help those in need of one on one instruction or accommodation which is why they drop out of the GED program, and remain unemployed, under employed, or turn to crime just to feed their family. 

Years ago I went to UTB College of Education and asked that they set up a clinic for the Masters and PhD students to certify those in need of a GED for special accommodation during the test taking.  I got a resounding no.  The clinic would have given the students practical experience while helping the Community.

BISD never did a thing to help these students who now remain unemployed or under employed because they cannot get a job without a GED.  The BISD GED program is a joke.  There is no start date or end date.  Instruction is random from day to day.  This is not how you learn.

Mike Hernandez's GED program is not accredited by the Texas Work Force Commission so you as an unemployed person have to pay for the test.

I HAVE LEARNED PRIVATE CITIZENS WHO KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING, CAN DO MORE THAN ANY ELECTED OFFICIAL, SO LONG AS THEY ARE NOT DOING IT FOR SELF PROMOTION

BISD is so bad, after two months of demanding a special ARD meeting, and the teacher blaming the BISD Administration as to why no special ARD meeting can be scheduled, the little boy continues to fail and comes home crying.  So now next week we will go to the TEA and file a complaint.  BISD will blame everyone but themselves and immediately schedule the Special ARD.  I have been doing this for years.  In my view since IDEA is building 5 more schools in Brownsville, it is time to just shudder BISD and be done with it and allow IDEA to become our new school district.  I am helping as many parents as possible to move their children into IDEA. 

BISD should consider selling off some of its elementary schools to pay down the bonds.  It should be done in coordination with where IDEA wants to build.

MONTOYA BEER MONEY FIRST, THEN LIES FOR THE PERSON PAYING FOR THE BEER - FACTS AND LAW WILL NEVER GET IN THE WAY OF HIS REPORTING


Montoya continues with his lie that Philip Cowen tried to get BISD to pay for Carlos Elizondo's criminal defense.  There are two problems with his stories.  One, it was never on the agenda, and two it would be illegal. 

From the Texas Civil Practices and Remedies Code

Two key variables before a public entity can even consider reimbursing an elected official for their criminal defense, they must be found not guilty or the case must be dismissed.  Because the indictment against Carlos Elizondo has nothing to do with BISD, under no facts could he be reimbursed. § 104.002. If it were a case involving BISD, and he was cleared the maximum payment would be $10,000.

It took me three minutes to pull up the law.  Montoya an alleged journalist claims when making up these conspiracy theories he has no duty to verify the law.

"Sec. 104.0035. STATE LIABILITY; CRIMINAL PROSECUTION. (a) The state shall indemnify a person for reasonable attorney's fees incurred in defense of a criminal prosecution against the person if:
(1) the person is covered by Section 104.001;
(2) the attorney general determines that the conduct for which the person is criminally prosecuted could give rise to a civil cause of action covered by Section 104.002;
(3) the person is found not guilty after a trial or appeal or the complaint, information, or indictment is dismissed without a plea of guilty or nolo contendere being entered; and
(4) the attorney general determines that the complaint, information, or indictment presented against the person was dismissed because:
(A) the presentment was made on mistake, false information, or other similar basis, indicating absence of probable cause to believe, at the time of the dismissal, the person committed the offense; or
(B) the complaint, information, or indictment was void.
(b) State liability for indemnification under this section may not exceed $10,000 for the prosecution of a criminal offense or the prosecution of two or more offenses prosecuted in a single criminal action."
IT IS ALL LIES BECAUSE MONTOYA NEEDS BEER MONEY
For beer money Montoya and his sponsors cost the people of Brownsville millions when Cowen was unable to get the corrupt and cowardly BISD Board to vote for an attorney to look into Tenaska. It is also no great secret that Montoya switched sides on the Cesar De Leon racist matter the second his employer Mike Hernandez wanted Cesar protected. This is why Montoya also went after the hiring of a lawyer to protect the Board Members from acts of intimidation. Such acts promote corruption. An attorney would have destroyed Cesar de Leon, and Mike Hernandez could not have that.
THE AWARD FOR THE MOST SHAMEFUL PERSON WHO ADVERTISES WITH MONTOYA GOES TO ALEX BEGUM. ALEX KEEPS HIM IN HIS BEER MONEY EVEN THOUGH HE DEFAMES THE COWENS, WHILE ALEX CLAIMS TO BE GREAT FRIENDS WITH THE COWENS. HAVE YOU NOT AN OUNCE OF SELF RESPECT ALEX BEGUM?


WHAT MAKES YOU EVEN MORE PATHETIC ALEX, YOU ARE KNOWINGLY FEEDING AN ADDICTION WHICH COULD LEAD TO THE DEATH OF INNOCENT PEOPLE  

And if you were not feeding Montoya's addiction after he kills someone you would be the first to sue his advertises for enabling his addiction with lies in exchange for beer money

THE EVIL DUO MARY AND LOUIS SOROLA CONTINUE TO PAY THEIR DRUNK MOUTH PIECE TO LIE SO THEY CAN EARN MORE MONEY

UPDATE:

A very reliable source and eyewitness contacted me immediately on this post.  As I have explained over and over againt because of the nature of the beast Linda Salazar gets the bulk of the wedding referrals because of her longevity on the bench. Everyone who has ever run a successful business knows this.  This is why it is lost on Mary Esther and Loius Sorola.

WHAT HAPPENED ACCORDING TO VERIFIED EYEWITNESS STATEMENTS

A couple set up a date for a wedding with Judge Salazar.  They were told they had to get a license.  They went for the license.  Judge Salazar who they had already chosen to perform the wedding went to the second floor to remind them when they are done with the requirements which include a waiting period that they then need to return to her floor.  That is it.

My witness is reliable and was there and heard everything.  What Montoya did was take an innocent act and make it into something big with lies to make it appear to be something it was not.  I trust my source because they were up front that in fact Judge Salazar was there, no denial, but went on to explain what really happened.

My sources in county administration have informed me that they are trying to get on the agenda to make it a basis for discharge if any JP employee is caught outside the office directing people to a particular JP for weddings.  This is good.  I have posted Jonathan Gracia's Assistant near the elevator directing people and posted the picture.  Mary Esther Sorola periodically puts her staff outside the office to direct people to her office for weddings.

My solution is simple, the county should make the maximum rate for county time weddings $100.00, with half being paid to the county.  Or outright ban weddings being done on county time, or allowing the JP staff to work on setting weddings while on the clock.  In fact Alex Dominguez told me he fully supports  this, but then donates to Mary Esther Sorola who is supporting none of the reforms needed to fix the problems in the JP courts.  So what's up Alex with your lies?

ORIGINAL POST

Fact: The evidence shows the Sorolas are in financial ruin, and that several years back Louis Sorola had to file for bankruptcy.  The propaganda mouth piece for the Sorolas never ever talks about the great things she is doing as a JP, because she does nothing as a JP to make things better.  Does she belong to any of the State JP organizations which work to improve the laws and procedures for litigants in the JP courts?  Nope.

Mary Sorola endlessly bitches about not earning enough money from marriages, not about making the JP court system easier for the people, especially the pro se.  When Linda Salazar tries to make it easier for the pro se, the Sorola's propagandist attacks Linda Salazar.

I think it is way past due for Linda Salazar to sue the Sorola's and their mouth piece for defamation per se, and defamation false light.

This is not complex, Linda Salazar has been around for so long she has tons of referrals. This is lost on Louis Sorola because he does not make a living on referrals such as Linda Salazar, but on court appointments, and working with the judges to by pass the wheel for the appointments and go directly to him.  I am sure he has a few clients he has secured on his own.  But he certainly has no concept of the importance of referrals in building a business.

HOW MANY STORIES DID MONTOYA PRINT SAYING LINDA SALAZAR HAD HER STAFF OUTSIDE THE WEDDING CLERK'S OFFICE DIRECTING THE COUPLES TO LINDA SALAZAR?

Not one, not even once could he post evidence of his claim.  Joe Rivera and Sylvia Garza swore an investigation was done and no evidence to support Mary Esther's lies to Montoya could be found.

In fact now Montoya  has backed away from his claims of proof, to suspected "In the past, other JPs had suspected that she had a plant in county clerk Sylvia Garza Perez's office steering customers to her office to hook them up for the wedding ceremonies at $200 to $350 a pop. In Texas, JPs keep the cash for the ceremonies."

THE LATEST STORY IS BIZARRE

On a marriage license, you go to the second floor and pay a fee.  You are given a package about how to proceed.  If you do not want to wait the 72 hour waiting period, you pay the District Clerk a fee for a waiver and then search out a judge to sign the waiver.  You have no way of knowing if the judge will sign the waiver.  So why when just going for the licence would you bring along your entire wedding party?  You would not, which is why we know the story is a lie.  If your witness says he was given a business card by Linda Salazar, why did Montoya not post the business card?  It never happened.

What may have happened is someone told Mary Esther {correction should have read "told Mary Esther Linda Salazar"]was on the second floor for some business reason, and from there they concocted the story.

From Mary Esther's propagandist:

"She said her name was Linda Salazar and the at [should be "that"] she was a JP on the second floor, all in Spanish. I think she thought everyone there was getting [a] license. She didn't know hat[should be "that"]  except for our friends getting the license, we were all part of the wedding party. So she handed out cards and said that she could marry them on the second floor."

When I did a story where I was the eye witness and posted a picture of Jonathan Gracia's assistant outside the elevator directing people, Montoya did not have a word to say about it.

WHY SILENCE ON JONATHAN GRACIA

I have verified that Louis Sorola has a ton of cases in Jonathan Gracia's court.  I could not find one in his wife's court, which would mean automatic recusal anyway, and none in Linda Salazar's court.  I could be wrong on Linda Salazar, I just did not see them.  I was given a tip, and Jonathan Gracia and Louis Sorola before the March primary will be dealing with this. So far everything thing I have been told has proven true. This is why Montoya protected Jonathan Gracia when I was able to speak as the eye witness with a picture to verify my claim.  Louis Sorola  and Jonathan Gracia are part of a forum shopping scheme.  This scheme also goes to a cover up with the help of Alex Dominguez.  It is all coming out before the primaries.

This is an example of Linda Salazar trying to make the JP courts more equitable while Mary Esther Sorola offers nothing.  Commissions court so far opposes this reform with Alex Dominguez and and Sofia Benavides opposing the reform to protect Mary Esther Sorola.

The US Supreme Court has an opinion nearly every term denouncing forum shopping and ending it.  Texas law was changed to stop plaintiff lawyers from filing major personal injury claims in the LRGV as part of forum shopping for the judges most likely to rule for them.  The Texas Supreme Court even weighed in in a Cameron county case to end the forum shopping.

Judge Linda Salazar has been for several years asking for a central clerk to randomly assign all new JP cases by computer.  This will make the system more equitable.  But Alex Dominguez with his lies, and Sofia Benavides do not want a central clerk.  It will end the deal making and forum shopping arrangements.

PHILIP T. COWEN: AWARD FOR BOLDEST MOVE FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE PEOPLE

Because Montoya according to Mike Hernandez works for him, and Hernandez hates the Cowans over the Port Election, Montoya trashed Mr. Cowan with a false conspiracy theory on no evidence.

The award is for wanting to hire an attorney to look into the rate increase at BPUB and possible recovery of the money charged for Tenaska.  This would have helped everyone who is billed by the BPUB.

But Montoya was paid to trash him and the matter was set aside.  Because for Montoya the high he gets from addiction is worth more then Mr. Cowan trying to have BISD hire an attorney to represent in effect all of us over the failed Tenaska deal, we all lost.

The only elected official in all of Cameron County and Brownsville who actually tried to do something to lower our bills and help everyone was trashed with a false conspiracy theory for a few beers.

Those who advertise with Montoya are going to be repeatedly linked to this tremendous loss for the people.  There must be accountability.

FAMILY AND I AT WINERY ON PECONIC BAY

We started with fried fresh bay scallops.  Then we went to a restaurant where most of us had a red clam chowder with crab.  Then we headed to the winery for a few glass.

ENJOY THE EVENING AND TOMORROW

This is my favorite picture of Bela and Keaton.  Keaton and Bela were best pals.  She use to rub my cinnamon sticks on Keaton and then smell her.  I just love how patiently Keaton is sitting there watching Bela open her presents.



 REAL NY DELI LUNCH

Yesterday my sister and I spend the day cooking for today, and making pies.  I was on my feet way too long.  This morning she heard me when I fell. It was a bad fall.  So this afternoon while shopping for projects for the grand kids to do tonight, she stopped at the deli and got me a real nice real fresh, made last night roast beef sandwich. I love Texas food, but is is nice to eat NY food.  The sandwich was good. 

Last night my brother had us over for drinks and I see they are cleaning up the the take out Chinese. All of them turned to my brother and said "we told you to invite him."  They got a good laugh over the anger which was on my face. So he made me two Canadian Crowns with Ginger Ale and I was buzzed enough to where I no longer care.

IF IN FACT SHE PERSONALLY SERVED THE BISD LAWSUIT, BISD CAN FILE A MOTION TO QUASH SERVICE

Other than her stupid damages request I have no issue with her lawsuit.  Montoya is full of shit in complaining because he praises Presas-Garcia for her First Amendment lawsuit against BISD.  But then Judge Lopez is not paying him for lies.

I think Judge Hanen is interested in the FERPA violations.  This is a problem at BISD with Board Members and even the supers releasing confidential information to settle scores with parents.  If the FERPA violation is real Judge Lopez will finally put BISD in its place.  It will be sad if the claim is real, but if it is real Judge Hanen will take no prisoners when issuing his order.

I reported how Bret Springston released defamatory and confidential information to Rick Zayas after a student was assaulted by a teacher. It was an attempt to disgrace the child.  Bret was sent packing shortly thereafter.

BISD NEEDS TO FILE A MOTION TO QUASH SERVICE

Federal law says you serve a lawsuit pursuant state law.  Assuming Judge Lopez served the lawsuits herself, they are subject to being quashed.

TRCP 103 in part says, " But no person who is a party to or interested in the outcome of a suit may serve any process in that suit, and, unless otherwise authorized by a written court order..

A review of Pacer shows Judge Lopez did not get an order authorizing her to serve the lawsuits personally.  There is plenty of case law allowing for the court to quash the service, assuming she did the service herself.  But given the potential for FERPA violations Judge Hanen could use his discretion and let it go.

MY MAIN INTEREST IS TO SEE IF JUDGE LOPEZ HAS REAL EVIDENCE OF A FERPA VIOLATION

Her first move is to subpoena everyone who posted the information to the internet. Only the people who posted it to the internet can verify it came from BISD.  They have no protection.  They answer the question or be held in contempt.  BISD needs to subpeona Cesar de Leon and introduce his threats towards Carlos Elizondo, because Cesar speaking for Judge Lopez revealed a lot about her daughter.  This is important for JudgeHanen to consider. Judge Lopez cannot blame BISD for some of this information getting out if she put Cesar de Leon up to threatening Carlos Elizondo.

JUDGE WORKING ON COUNTY TIME

A reader asked about this.  The question is complex.  Someone would have to know the exact time she was serving these papers and determined if she cancelled any hearings previously scheduled.  I have a judge under investigation because I can prove he cancelled a criminal trial for a man who was in jail for a year who was unable to meet bail.  He cancelled the criminal trial to act as a visiting judge for one day out of the county.  The rules are clear on this. 

Judges have no scheduled hours.  The issue is did she cancel scheduled hearings to serve these lawsuits?  Did she use the county computer to prepare the lawsuit?  Did she use the county account for legal research for her personal business?  Judicial Rule 12 allows for an open records on Judge Lopez, but I doubt she will answer it

I AM A GREAT GRAND UNCLE AGAIN

Boy my family loves to procreate.  He is a preemie so he comes home on Christmas day. Life can be weird.  Last time I was packing to go to NY for this baby's great grandfather's funeral I got the call my sister in Tenn had also passed.  Tonight while packing and working I got this text.  Our family is huge and  bit nicer this Christmas.  He is named after his late great grandfather. The family is all stoked he is finally here, although early.

HOPE FOR A BETTER YEAR AFTER Ben Driebergen WON SURVIVOR

For 4 votes in a row they were gunning for him.  He did not sleep looking for immunity idiots to save himself at tribal.  He found three and then voted the sole vote to eliminate a player.  Then when it appeared he won the final immunity, an upside down U cost him immunity.  But a twist never used before forced the final immunity winner to only take one player to the final three leaving Ben and another player to compete with fire for the third place.  Ben won big.

Ben won in the end on one key vote.  Laura who was voted off by Ben as the sole vote against her, as he had immunity and the votes did not count against him said, "Ben use this win to help veterans with PTSD," while she was casting her final vote.  That is how the game is played.  She put aside the fact Ben voted her out and voted for the one player who suffers from real bad PSTD as an acknowledgment he did not let it hold him back and to promote more help for more veterans.  Like any good Marine he held his ground on 4 votes alone and beat the petty players who dishonored themselves and their families.

This is how you play survivor.  The players who play to settle scores never win.  The jury members who make clear they are going to vote to settle a score never vote for the winning player.

This was a great  end of the year.

MY SCHEDULE

Well Thursday will be 6 a.m. through the night until my ride comes to take me to Harlingen mid morning Friday for New York. 

My self esteem is not so low I need to be seen or be around the right people.  I am happy with the politicos calling me to wish me well in NY and when I get back and hopefully will get surgery on my spin and legs.

I never attend these politico parties and have never agreed to associate with anyone on social media because I am independent.  I do not need to be seen and glorified by people who live off the public tit, and use their office for self dealing.

Second many politicos including judges are silent supporters who feed me information.  I will go to jail before I compromise them.When I was trying to raise money to help with my brother's case I immediately stopped when these wonderful people came forward and put money on the table.  I told each of them, if I ever had to disclose the name of the donors their careers would be hurt and I could not be party to that.  So I wiped out the last of my savings.  Some have a bright futures and not being associated with anyone in social media is key to their moving up.  I respect them, but take their help when they offer it in terms of information.

MY JOY

Not everyone is blessed with a family of incredible love and hysterical dysfunction.  I am so stoked to get to NY.  Every day is planned out.  Every day will be another form of international cuisine from great family cooks or great restaurants.  The tradition of ordering in Chinese at my brother's is always awesome.  The egg rolls are fresh, and his daughter and I always share the eggplant in garlic and black sauce. 

THE NORTH ATLANTIC IN THE WINTER IS MAJESTIC

I love the North Atlantic in the winter.  Other than family those few hours on the beach will be the highlight of the trip.

PEOPLE WHO NEED TO BE SCENE ARE SLAVES TO LOW SELF ESTEEM - THIS IS WHY YOU WILL NEVER EVER SEE ME AT ANY PUBLIC FUNCTION OF A POLITICO PARTY.

My next post will probably be on Christmas Eve as I continue my tradition of posting holiday music.

Guys go enjoy your family and friends.  You do not need to be scene anywhere to have worth.

To the politicos, I would prefer if you gave it up until January 2, 2018, so we can have peace for the holidays, but I know better, so at least try and stop the lying and defamation of your opponents until the 26th of December.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS NO MATTER WHAT YOU CELEBRATE, EVEN IF IT IS NOT RELIGIOUS AND JUST ABOUT FAMILY

MAKE YOUR NEW YEARS RESOLUTION TO STAY AWAY FROM SOCIAL MEDIA.  MY FB ACCOUNT IS FAMILY ONLY ON FAMILY JOY.  NO POLITICS ALLOWED.  TRY IT, IT IS SO MUCH MORE JOYFUL.


AS TRUMP AND HILLARY CONTINUE THEIR TWITTER WARS, POLLS SHOW BOTH AT RECORD LOWS IN TERMS OF POPULARITY

Twitter wars are for twits.  The polling has them at a statistical dead tie for unpopularity, 35/36%.  The Democrats being self destructive still are clueless as to why they lost.  The Democratic Plantation Politics will never end.  They believe they own minorities.  Slavery is over numb nuts, you lost the war between the states.

Trump Polling

Hillary Polling

  • But some Democrats say the party needs to do more to engage black voters during nonelection years.
  • "It's time for them to get off their ass and start making life better for black folks and people who are poor," the retired NBA star Charles Barkley, an Alabama native, said.
  • Source:
Charles Barkley's speech was amazing when he praised Doug Jones for the win, and then put out the warning that Blacks and other minorities will no longer be dismissed by the Democrats as for sure votes.

The Democrats did not hear a word he said.  How dare a slave speak to them that way.  Stop covering up black on black crime and do what needs to be done, spend the money for a large law enforcement presence to protect the innocent.  Admit the truth about how Reagan and Bush I flooded poor communities with drugs to fund the civil wars in Central America.  Admit how Bush II, Obama, and now Trump aid the Afghan farmers by aiding in opium production for sale in the U.S. to keep the farmers happy and away from the Taliban.

Black on black crime is a direct result of both Democrats and Republicans treating them as slaves and lab rats.  The Democrats have summarily dismissed Charles Barkley's warning.  Slaves do not get a vote in Democratic Party Plantation politics.

If I could sue Nancy Pelosi to get her to stop sending upwards of 5 emails a day with her endless petitions which are meaningless I would.  They all get marked as spam, and they keep on coming.  She has no opt out on her emails.  She somehow seems to think she is going to endear me to her by harassing me to death.

Gilbert Hinojosa plays the same game.  Everyday my FB account gets hit with another  Texas Democratic Party demand I sign a petition.  These petitions are a distraction from the fact the Democrats have put forth not one idea for anything.  They cannot compete with the Republicans for ideas which get their base jumping so they con us with stupid petitions which are going nowhere.

For weeks we had to hear the same talking points over tax reform long before there was even a Bill.

We are not stupid.  We know talking points are nothing more than an indoctrination tactic used by rudderless politicians to manipulate the ignorant.

Okay back to bed.  Monday I took a hard fall.  By chance I had an appointment on Monday with the physical medicine doctor.  There was no swelling and no obvious broken bones.  I just hurt.  Yesterday was real bad, and right now my ribs, back, right side, and shoulders are killing me.

Since nothing works for pain, I use sleep.  Sitting in this chair is killing my back.

With pressure on the VA the physical therapist's decision to deny me the EMG requested by the neurosurgeon has been granted.  The consult was on Monday.  Based on multiple head and spinal MRI's the doctor concluded it was necessary to do the EMG from the neck down to my feet.  It will be two hours with a 28 gage needle poking me from the neck down to the feet.  It will be two hours of intense crying in horrific pain.  The procedure is on January 5th.  It has to be done to determine if surgery is a must, and how to proceed and where.

I had it done on my hands twice before the carpal tunnel surgery.  It is very, very painful.

A VIRGINIA RECOUNT CHANGED THE HOUSE OF DELEGATED BY ONE SINGLE VOTE

In the original count the Republican won by a handful of votes thereby leaving the Virginia House of Delegates in the hands of the Republicans. A recount gave the seat to the Democrat thereby splitting the House of Delegates 50/50.  The Republicans hold the Senate by a 21/19 margin, with the Democrats holding the Governor's House.  One Republican Senator defects and there is a 20/20 tie.

In the case of Alabama the Republican Secretary of State has said there is no chance a recount will flip the vote to Roy Moore - so that is a done deal

The lesson here guys is, one vote can decide any of the handful of contested Democratic Primary contested races.  To the candidates in contested races, do not take for granted even one vote.

See NRP story

THE PRIMARIES IN CAMERON COUNTY  MAY BE A BUST COME MARCH, BUT IT IS THE TIME WE USE THIS VOTE TO END THE BETANCOURT DYNASTIC FAMILY, AND THE USE OF MACHINES AND THREATS TO KEEP BETTER PEOPLE OFF OF THE BALLOT

Yesterday I was asked if I will be voting a blank ballot in March.  I said no.  The Betancourt Dynastic family has to go.  Between now and March the BV will be covering the Betancourt Dynastic family a lot.  So I will be voting for Sylvia Garza Perez, mostly because I use her office all of the time, and everyone is helpful and professional.  Why would you change course when you have someone already doing a great job?

I will also be voting for Carol Sanchez for County Court at Law #2.  Laura Betancourt is part of Team Saenz and openly helped Saenz's nephew walk a second time on a DWI with property damage.  I was in court when she went along with Saenz little puppet and barred the arresting DPS officer from testifying.  He told me everything and the evidence had Laura Betancourt done her job would have sunk Victor Garcia.  When you have a witness like a DPS officer in court you do not send them away.  You preserve their testimony for later use.  But Laura Betancourt  kept the evidence out of the record.  She either does not know basic law, or ran cover for Victor Garcia, Saenz's nephew, which is why she and her sister Lali are part of Team Saenz.

A video from the first victim of Saenz's niece and nephew, before the second accident involving Victor Garcia.  Laura Betancourt putting drunks on the road to kill your family as part of Team Saenz.




These Dynastic Families and the political machines are why qualified people do not run.  As I knew and verified, they will offer you help, but then demand favors upfront.  Anyone can put their name on the ballot.  But no matter how qualified you are, you will go nowhere without the money and the machines, which require you cut deals upfront.  The Betancourt battle will be the first major battle to end this system which keeps the most qualified from running for office.

If we want better candidates, we must defeat Lali and Laura Betancourt.  There will be a lot of stories coming from the BV on how "Judge" Laura Betancourt is part of Team Saenz and corrupts the process through judicial discretion on command from Saenz.

BECAUSE FACTS MATTER THE TAX BILL HAS NOT PAST YET

The Senate is not even due to vote on the final bill until tonight.  There will be only 99 of the 100 Senators voting. We are  at 51 Republicans and 48 Dems and Independents. John McCain is out.  He is in Arizona, too sick from the treatment for brain cancer.

Senator Corker is in a hole the size of the Grand Canyon. Conflicting stories have the Senate House Conference Committee putting in a provision which will benefit Republican Senator Corker and his aide in the millions.  After the provision was added Corker went from a No vote to a Yes vote.  Democrats have already begun the investigation independent of a committee to prove the provision was added to buy Corker's vote so they can push for his indictment and those who may have conspired with him.

THE POLITICAL DOCTRINE PROBLEM

Rumblings in Washington have a lawsuit being filed alleging Corker and others were bought.  If you know the juridical methodology of the Supreme Court you know this kind of lawsuit would be considered a Political Question - hence they will never hear it.  But the mere filing of the suit could cost the Republicans big time in November 2018.

Senator Corker does not care what the people of Tenn think of him because he is retiring at the end of 2018.  But the 10 Republican Senators up for reelection in States won by Hillary Clinton, and with dismal polling numbers on how disliked this Tax Bill is, they have a lot to think about.

The national press will not report on, and the Senators will certainly not reveal what they are hearing on the phone or through emails from their constituents in these 10 states.  No matter how you run the numbers, if 2 Republicans vote with the Democrats, with McCain out of the picture, the Tax Bill fails.

It is too early to call the end vote.

BUT BECAUSE FACTS MATTER, THE SENATE HAS YET TO VOTE ON THE FINAL BILL

WHAT I WANT TO HAPPEN AND WHY

Most of my family and I have some type retirement account managed by a professional investor.  We are already seeing riskier investments being sold off in favor of the old standards.  This has nothing to do with Trump.  Historical analysis shows the stock market is about to hit a bubble.  A lot of money will be lost.

JCP's is looking at a possible class action suit because just before Black Friday its CEO sold off over $800,000 worth of stock, legally.  That sent a message to investors  the CEO did not see a bright future.  On balance the stock is down since Black Friday.  Last week it fell under $3.00 a share again.  Right now it is up to $3.07.  Within the last three weeks it was up to just under $3.50.  It started the year just under $10.00 a share.

Employees are reporting their retirement accounts have dropped nearly 25% in some cases because their contributions were being used to bolster JCP stock only to see their money lost.  The move just before Black Friday by the CEO will be the cornerstone of the class action by the employees and retirees if it happens.

THE POINT

With or without the Tax Reform the stock market and housing markets are expect to take a hit within the next year.  Because people are fact resistant, if it starts before the November 2018 elections, the Republicans will be blamed, even though it was going to happen anyway, and the Democrats will take the House and Senate, and Donald Trump will be a lame duck president for the last two years of his term.

To try and save himself he will work with the Dems to do another Tax Reform which they favor, thinking it will save him.  It will not, but in time the natural cycle of things will see the economy recover after a lot of suffering which will all be put on the Republicans.

The long game is making Donald Trump a lame duck. With or without the Republican Tax plan the market and housing bust is coming, so why not just let the Republicans take the blame and use it to our advantage to make Donald Trump a lame duck president?

NEW TO BV, TACKLING THE MEN OF DOWNTOWN WHO STALK ABUSED WOMEN WITH OFFERS OF DRUGS AND ALLEY SEX

A Brownsville person will never open a top of the line bar downtown which will succeed because of the downtown bars where misogynist men prey on abused women for quick sex in the alleys and induce their behavior by feeding their drug addiction.

It is time the abused women have a voice.  Since the misogynist have decided to paint themselves as the heroes of these women, the BV will print the truth, without names.  The women have suffered enough.  The men who seek to make light of this will be called out.

I will never forget the day I went to a friend's home to drop off something and one of these women took off her bra and tried to lap dance with me.  I left infuriated and she knew it.  But I know based on questioning of my friends she was abused as a child, became a drug addict, has an arrest record as long as they get, and seeks out sex, even after marrying a man who only used her for sex.

A sample story "Jenna is a wife, mother, former model, and running enthusiast. She is also a recovering sex addict whose compulsion drove her to both indiscriminate sexual encounters in her personal life and engagement in professional sex work as a dominatrix and sensual masseuse. Triggered by years of sexual abuse at the hands of her stepfather, she relentlessly sought the attention of men to quell the residual pain of sexual trauma. “[I used] everything at my disposal to try to keep myself from feeling bad,” she says. “Like a shark who must constantly swim to stay alive, I would move from relationships to relationship … wanting to find that place that would make me feel like a safe little girl again.”

Click for full story:

So what the BV is going to do is call out the men who prey on these abused women, the bar dives they go to downtown, and help educate the women as to the source of their pain and where they can go for help.  The women are victims, NOT SEX TOYS

With rare exception the downtown bars are dives with women in the alley not thinking twice about performing oral sex on 5 men at a  time all standing there with their wankers out.  The police know the score but since some of them are the ones abusing these women, silence rules.

So the BV which launched the successful "Parents Against Domestic Abuse," which is read world wide as an informational FB link because it covers every angle of Domestic Abuse, will now launch a page on "Overcoming Abuse and Sex Addition."





The women need a voice with admissions and a guide to healing, and not a page promoted by the misogynist men who abuse these women as a way to run cover for  their perverted ways.

Only when the women feel empowered to speak up and thereby empower themselves will they begin to heal and thereby help other women to heal.

CAMERON COUNTY REPUBLICAN PARTY IN A WAR NO ONE WILL WIN

The BV has lost count on how many times it will not allow through the cowardly anony comments accusing the County Chair of everything under the sun.  I rejected another one this morning.

Imagine a group of elephants attacking one another endlessly until there is only one left standing, that is what is happening within the Cameron County Republican Party.

Now the funny part is the same trolls whose comments I reject over and over again who are part of this internal war, will post today with distraction saying it is all lies.

The conspiracy theories on Robert Sanchez entering the race for County Judge are endless.  There are so many contradicting claims on who did what and when it is just bizarre.  And of course none of these cowards will post their name.

Guys, kill each other, I do not care.  But again I am telling you type away.  None of your comments will get through.

A HOPEFUL MESSAGE FROM DISTRICT CLERK ERIC GARZA

"I’m proud to announce that I am running unopposed as your District Clerk of Cameron County. A Special Thanks to my Family and Friends for their support. I am looking forward to my continued commitment to the Office of the District Clerk and to Cameron County. We have accomplished many goals and have many more in the works. Let’s Keep Moving Forward!!! #EricGarzaDC"

This was shared to my FB page by a friend who knows Eric well.

I have dealt with a lot of District Clerks.  Some are down right batty, like the one in Tarrant County who openly defied an order for the Court of Appeals, to Eric Garza who knows his job and follows it even if it angers the judges.  This is not to suggest any judge dislikes him, it is simply to say they know the rules will now be followed.  I have never heard a bad word from any judge or their staff when it comes to Eric Garza.

This young man is a breath of fresh air in this county.  Every time I have to interact with his office, professionalism defines every move.by Eric himself or his staff.

If Eric Garza is the future of Cameron county, we have a great future.

ROBERT SANCHEZ ANNOUNCES AS DEMOCRAT FOR COUNTY JUDGE UNDER MANIPULATION OF CRIS VALADEZ, AND THE TYPING MONKEY CRIES ME A RIVER

I do not even know where to begin with the clown.

 BUT A SECOND ABOUT YESTERDAY 

 The battlefield acupuncture stopped working again. My roommate had to help me around all day. Then came his new Smart TV. Great TV horrible instructions. So that took a few hours. But with my wifi, he has Internet, with my Amazon Prime he gets all Amazon movies and programming for free, and with his family cell phone plan gets him all Netflix.  It cost me the entire day. but Smart TV's are real cool.

My legs are bad.  Walking, sitting down, standing up means falling.  This morning I felt a bit better and went to Home Depot, and while parking loss complete use of my right leg and while trying to move it off the gas peddle the car accelerated, I had to swerve to avoid hitting a pole.

The VA will not help.  We have no qualified doctors in Harlingen.  If there is a qualified neurosurgeon in the LRGV the VA cannot find one.  That is the problem.  The VA San Antonio and Dallas by law are to accept us and they will not.  I am working with a group of veterans going through the same process.  The doctors promise something and then drop it because no one will work with LRGV veterans.

The VA San Antonio has a great pain management neurologist.  He wants to treat the veterans from the LRGV, but the Chief Administrator and Medical Officer are banning treatment of for LRGV veterans.

The Trump White House complaint line is just another one of his cons.  They are powerless and the doctors here just dismiss their complaints on behalf of the LRGV veterans.  As noted before, the Harlingen Clinic for years has been rated as at the bottom when it comes to caring for veterans.  Congressman Vela is a con artist who has refused to help the veterans.  When he speaks of veteran issues he lies because he knows he can.

I am hoping to get a walker today.  A lawyer for a group of veterans is putting the VA on notice that the VA, the Harlingen Clinic, and VA San Antonio are about to be sued over this mess.  I know the VA they will spend a year investigating, nothing will change, no one will be fired, and the veterans will be left hanging.  Well they are going to do it before a federal judge in Washington.  The veterans I am working with are sinking into deep depression, unable to function, and are in disbelief no one in the VA system cares.

OKAY SANCHEZ- THE CRIS VALADEZ CONNECTION

I have a ton of text messages Sanchez forwarded to me from Cris.  In our conversations Sanchez repeatedly demanded I do a story that Carlos Cascos lost his job with the SOS because Mexico filed protests with the Governor that Cris was using his job at the SOS's office for self dealing in developing his own business connections with Mexico for his private dealings.

He continues to refuse to admit he lied about Mike Hernandez's drug use and that Mike is a scam artist.  Or are the two in a Mexican stand off with Mike fearing what a lawsuit will reveal. and Sanchez simply not having the money to defend a lawsuit so he continues to endorse Herndandez.  His is the deal boys, every time Sanchez praises Mike Hernandez this paragraph and following graphics will be posted to the BV, until suit is filed by Hernandez, or Sanchez admits he is a liar.  Admitting he is a liar clears Cris Valadez of the lies Sanchez told me about the SOS and Cascos, and Hernandez.  But did Sanchez also lie when he implicated himself in knowing drug dealers?




We know Sanchez is a coward, drug user during his divorce according to official court filings, and a liar.  We know he claims there is an alien civilization in the Gulf of Mexico, and that he favors closing the libraries as not needed.  The latter explains why he dropped out of every university his daddy sent him to, and why he is a complete moron when it comes to knowing history.

His Aztec piece to try a play the race card was so devoid of reality, who ever wrote for him did it to humiliate him.  Historical fact, most of the indigenous people east of what is today Mexico city, grew tired of being enslaved and slaughtered by the Aztec nation and willingly joined forces with the Spaniards to defeat the Aztec nation.  According to Sanchez the Aztecs are somehow the victims.

Mexico is filled with hundreds of indigenous tribes which still practice their traditions, while speaking their language.   The Rarámuri or Tarahumara, in Chihuahua are mixed in terms of their independence from Spanish influence.  Some are integrated and a large number still speak their native language and practice and live by their traditional ways.

If you believe Sanchez the olive skin, not the white skin such as the French and English, Spanish used the darker skin as a basis to discriminate.

Historical fact is indigenous tribes all over what is today New England and Southern Canada fought with the French against the British settlers because of the barbaric practises of the British towards the indigenous people.

The Narragansett people of New England and Long Island, fought with those who truly believed in Religious Freedom and with those who paid to buy their land for settlement.  This is a unique part of Rhode Island history.  My grandfather 11 generations removed was saved by the Narragansett people during a raid in Connecticut to return him to his home in Rhode Island before being sent back to England for religious hearsay.  

All civilizations going back to modern humans conquering Neanderthal man, is about one group conquering another.  There is no pure genetic British blood line because it is an island of different conquering people.  This is why English is considered a barbaric language. It is a mutt language of many languages.

Playing the race card on lies is despicable.

SPACE X  

Sanchez's evidence delusions is seen in the following statement.

"I as Cameron County Judge will tell all when first space rocket will launch.  Elon Musk will tell me and I will insist his word is golden.  I am Robert Sanchez and business will proceed ladies and gentlemen. We do not wait."

Musk is accustomed to working with billionaires with highly qualified staff and PhD engineers, and Sanchez wants you to believe as a drop out of every university he has ever attended, he is going to force Musk to ignore all science variables and answer his question or else.  Delusional

Sanchez fails to understand, other than he has no chances of winning, he is one vote, and the City Commission and County Commission are laughing their asses off over his claim on Musk.

Sanchez who is very science challenged fails to understand windows for launching and weather.  Something which Musk cannot predict at this stage of the game.

I am not saying he is lying, he is just stupid.

THE TYPING MONKEY

He finally realized McHale played him into working with Sanchez for the benefit of Cascos.  So today the typing monkey today announces because Sanchez is running for office he is done with Sanchez.  The typing monkey was the only one not aware of how he was being played to promote Sanchez for the benefit of Carlos Cascos and Cris Valadez.  He monkey I think Cris's tax picture applies here again, because he bested you, again.

TO CRIS VALADEZ

I give you safe haven to call out Sanchez on the SOS claims.  I will allow for no comments.  Your response will be free standing to clear your name from Robert Sanchez's lies.  The power is yours Cris.  But if you do not, boy do I have a lot text messages from you to Sanchez, which he gave me, which in the end will give people pause to think what Sanchez says you did may be true.

DEMOCRAT DOUG JONES PROJECTED WINNER IN ALABAMA

This is a huge loss for Trump and a big win for women.  I use projected because the number is still not as high as I want.  There will be more mail votes and provisional votes counted in the days ahead.

If this reality holds the US Senate is now 51/49 favoring the Republicans.  Republican Senator Susan Collins has said she is not on board with the Republican tax bill.  Just one more Republican says no, and Trump's tax reform fails.

With 2018 around the corner and the RNC backing Roy Moore, Republican Senators are going to rethink their position on Trump. 

Two Republicans going independent will turn the Senate to the Democrats and make Trump a lame duck president until at least January 2019, or possibly the remainder of his term.

But I caution, as I am typing Jones margin has shrunk to under 10,000.  So once the other votes are counted we could see a different result.

But no matter how you look at it, the Republicans are going to do some soul searching about 2018.

IS ROBERT SANCHEZ RUNNING  COVER FOR A DRUG USER SCAM ARTIST?

There are two theories why Mike Hernandez has not sued Sanchez for claiming he is a drug user: one, Sanchez has the evidence to prove  the claim which is the same evidence he offered to sell me for $25,000, or he lied. and Hernandez has him shitting in his pants, which is why he now runs cover for the man he accused of being a drug user and a scam artist?  If Sanchez wants to be County Judge he either admits he lied, or explain why he is in bed with a drug using scam artist.



 


SO MIKE TELL MY READERS THE TRUTH, IS ROBERT SANCHEZ A LIAR OR DOES HE HAVE PROOF?  I HAVE NO WAY OF KNOWING, BUT  EITHER WAY IT APPEARS HE HAS THE PROOF AND THAT IS WHY YOU HAVE NOT SUED HIM, OR YOU THREATENED HIM INTO SILENCE


MIKE THE BV FORUM IS OPEN TO YOU TO SET THE STORY STRAIGHT

I will give you safe haven, so no negative comments can be posted.  In fact there will be no comments allowed.  Just set the story straight.  And I have so much, much more.  Robert has made it clear his brother runs his mouth like terminal diarrhea.  Is he lying about his brother too.  You promised to end this nonsense and have done nothing. Here is your chance.  Denounce Sanchez and finally make a name for yourself while suing Sanchez into bankruptcy.  You cannot continue to ignore this elephant in the room. 

Finally do something right for Brownsville and end Robert Sanchez for good.

THE POLITICAL NEWS OF THE DAY, I AM HOME AND READY TO REPORT

With me everything is a social experiment.  I knew if I made a go for the JP position Montoya would screw over Mary Esther Sorola with his endless defamation false light.  Yes, Mary Esther Sorola and others will be distracted in court for a long time over Montoya.

Even today, Montoya never able to print the truth claims Carlos Elizondo had a criminal charge for stealing lumber expunged.  It never happened.  It is just Montoya typing any lie which comes to mind.  On the left of my blog you will see the Elizondo documents.  The charge was for stealing wheelchairs, which was dropped after restitution.  Personally I think stealing wheelchairs is worse than not paying for lumber.  But I guess that is me.

THE JP ISSUE BEGAN WITH AN EMAIL

A political machine offered up a nice donation if I ran.  Realizing I had enough to get my name on the ballot I said, well okay, and I will worry about the rest later.

I have posted many many times, I hate candidates who put their names on the ballot without any hope of winning, or a game plan. People work hard for their money, and endanger their businesses when they donate against a political machine.  So a responsible candidate makes sure they have a fighting chance.

Out of nowhere I had 5 political machines, but iffy commitments on money.  Then came the emails, get on the ballot and I will give.  Well, I do not play that way.  Then came the questions of what I could do for them if they give.  Well as a private citizen I can endorse someone, but not while using any title as a judge or allowing it to be used at a fundraiser.  I do not play that one either.  Do not ask me for your endorsement in exchange for a donation.  I will say no.

So an advisor gives me a number on what it will cost to send one mailer to people who voted in the last two primaries as a way to direct them to my web page, and then get more money for more mailers.  I said that makes sense, so I lowered my goal.

Then I started to ask people if I can accept the donations on Monday morning after I file my designation of campaign treasurer.  What I heard was endless threats to anyone who helped me.  In one case a long term friend of my local family and their friends decided best to just stop talking to all of his long term friends because of his business and fear.  This is not how a democracy works.

I am horrible at taking money.  There are a few people who could have gotten me to a sufficient number, but they are high profile elected officials or family members and I simply have too much respect for them to chance be thrown out of office based on retaliation.  Brownsville is always first.

SO FOR MY 60TH I WILL HAPPILY SPEND IT IN NEW YORK, WHILE PURSUING MARY ESTHER SOROLA AND OTHERS IN COURT

I will never collect a penny from Mary or Louis Sorola because given their financial situation I suspect if it appears the case will go to trial they will seek bankruptcy protection.  Which is fine with me.

My days are very, very busy working with intellectually and learning challenged people.  We work on protecting their rights, getting them free GED testing with accommodation based on their special needs, and driver's licenses.  One person at a time can change a lot of lives.

THE DYNASTIC FAMILY ISSUE

I will be reporting on this a lot.  Sofia Benavides is going to take a lot of hits over the next two years.  This election will see a lot of hits against the Betancourts.  If Ernie Hernandez runs for the Port, the BV will raise the Dynastic Family issue.

When Ruben Peña sued him for election fraud I covered it, filed the complaint against Margarita Ozuna, and the process of ending the harvesting of the mail ballots started.

Montoya attacked me nearly every day for exposing the truth saying I was just an outsider who did not understand harvesting mail ballots is just done in Brownsville.

Montoya has whined like a baby every time some who pays him has a sign stolen.  I with my own eyes saw Yolanda Begum taking down Erin Garcia's sign.  According to Montoya this meant I supported the harvesting of mail ballots.  No.  I reported what I saw.

You see Alex Begum offered to pay Montoya more than Ernie Hernandez was offering.  Every time Ernie told me he never paid a penny I did my best to contain myself.  But I needed inside information so I kept the door open.  Cris Valadez would feed him lies and then he would try and feed them to me.  None of them made it to the BV.

When Begum filed the election contest lawsuit I warned if she did not move asap because of the rules, it would be dismissed.  Again me telling the truth about how to proceed to get the evidence in in time was me supporting the harvesting of mail ballots.  No.  The judge looked at the reality and dismissed the lawsuit as lacking sufficient time to be tried under the rules.

I called out CAVA for compromising the evidence by getting unqualified people to get affidavits from easily manipulated people.  In Dallas I saw the same problem and in the criminal case the DA refused to call any witnesses because the private group tainted the evidence to the point of having an Anglo blind women signing an affidavit in Spanish that my client stole her mail ballot.  The woman verified under oath she spoke and understood no Spanish and never signed the form.

Had CAVA had good evidence they may have been able to file on time and prove their claim.  I do not know.  All I did warn Begum of her challenges and she paid Montoya to claim I support stealing mail ballots.  People who tend to listen to Montoya's lies never seem to do well in the end.

Had Peña allowed me to prepare the mandamus for him, he would have been able to finish trying his case and a new election would have been called.

People chose to not listen.  I have a winning track record in election contests, but rather then rely on my expertise people like Begum prefer to lie.  I have a lot of respect for Michael Cowen taking on her case.  It is about the truth.  But the clock was against him and even as a great litigator he could not overcome the clock.

SO OFF TO NEW YORK FOR MY B-DAY AND NEW SUITS FROM BARNEY'S AND BROOKS BROTHERS 

The BV will oppose all Dynastic Family candidates in favor of new faces and ideas.  The people own the elections and not the Dynastic Families

A heart felt thank you to Montoya for giving me what I need to bog down the Sorola's and others in court.
