THE EVOLUTION OF LAW

Even further back than the Code of Hammurabi, in law you see rules based on evolution and social construct.  Biblical law speaks of how you treat your slaves.  It speaks about stoning your own children.  Today such laws are looked at as abusive.

While working on my masters thesis I read an essay by a law professor short on understanding the evolution of law and its utility who called the "Magna Carta" a myth and in fact not a Charter on Liberty.  His limited intellect forced him to view it in the context of the time he wrote his essay and not when it was written.

We know from history and anthropology groups formed and leaders evolved to protect the greater good.  We know of a concept known as Ordered Liberty.  We accept we relinquish certain liberties for protection.

It is false to say only the Barons benefited from the Magna Carta.  The Barons organized their territories for the protection of all.   For this protection the people had to become serfs, or go out on their own and survive.  By protecting the Barons you protected the people from an oppressive King.

In time such as Hegel and Marx noted in the dialectic, the status quo is challenged because it no longer works, the challenge compromises with the old into a new.  So in time as artisans rose the feudal system was doomed to fail, and it did.

Laws evolves with the changes.

But in understanding law, you cannot simply look to today.  You must look at its evolution.  Contrary to people like the late Associate Justice Antonin Scalia claiming our Founding Fathers' understanding of Speech and Liberty was frozen in time, it was not.  These men were educated during the age of Enlightenment and knew all concepts related to Liberty and Justice evolve.

Because none of this is taught even at the university, lawyers and judges know nothing of it. A frightening truth.  Any high school graduate with a B average who takes the Bar Review courses and truly studies will pass the Bar exam.  You do not even need to be a university graduate.  Law school is a complete and total waste of time. Some of the greatest lawyers of our Republic learned as apprentices and went on to be brilliant  jurists.

WHY?

They had to learn the writings from the Age of Enlightenment and learn it in the context of Blackstone's Common Law.  They had to learn the Magna Carta.  They had to learn the great opinions  from the King's Bench which moved us forward to the period of the Revolution.  They were exposed to the "Digest of Justinian" a summary of Roman law.

In all of this they saw how law evolved and the historical meaning of words like Liberty and Speech over time changed with changes in the social construct.

My Blackstone, Digest of Justinian and both Magna Carta's have cross notes to each as to key terms.  They give me in depth meaning to their greater meaning.  I can assure you judges have no interest in any of this.  If any of my law professors cared they never showed it.  More than once I was told to stop referencing these old texts to give context to the constitution.  I have actually read the Constitutional Minutes as written down and actually have correlated them to the evolution of law.

I do not view the law in the context of a simple statute.  I view the law in the context of the statute in regards to constitutional restraints, and what brought about the constitutionl restraints.  Neal Gorsuch's concurring opinion trashing the bureaucratic state is magnificent because it put the intent of restrain of power ahead of the unconstitutional 4th branch of government.  It may take a few years but in time even the most liberal among us will be writing articles on the brilliance of his concurring opinion.  In time the fake conservatives will be attacking it for taking unauthorized rule making not based in law away from these paper pushers.

I know my readers hate these educational posts.  But some of the lawyers and judges will read it and think about it, and it will change how they see the law.

Law evolves and through an ever evolving "Ordered Liberty,"  we must adjust.  At times there appears two valid paths.  Maybe they are both good, or maybe one is bad?   It is essential law makers understand this if they are to move laws forward to keep the peace within reason.

Abortion has no solution other than our thoughts evolving along with medicine.  Today if you are raped or simply have a condom break emergency contraception ends it within hours.  So I do not understand why people who are three months pregnant get to claim rape as a basis for an abortion.  You can even send a friend to buy it over the counter.

In Denmark I was shocked to learn most parents are encouraged to abort Down syndrome babies so there are almost no Down syndrome children in Denmark or for that matter any part of Scandinavia.  This is a social issue like drugs.  It is a war which will be won on the minds of the people using reason.  Of course there will always be valid reasons for an abortion, especially if the life of the mother is in question.   Abortion has so many complex social issues intertwined within it. There is no solution other than one day at a time.  We must respect one another while trying to reason it out.  The path must be chosen carefully.


THE LATE JUSTICE ROBERT JACKSON WILL FORM THE CORNERSTONE OF MY ARGUMENT TO REEXAMINE JUDICIAL IMMUNITY

""But if I have agreed to any prior decision which forecloses what now seems to be a sensible construction of this Act, I must frankly admit that I was unaware of it. However, no rights have vested no prejudicial action has been taken in reliance upon such a ruling. It does not appear to have been called to the attention of Congress and in effect approved by failure to act. Under these circumstances, except for any personal humiliation involved in admitting that I do not always understand the opinions of this Court, I see no reason why I should be consciously wrong today because I was unconsciously wrong yesterday."


All of the above forms the analysis on how I intend to get the Supreme Court to reconsider judicial immunity.  I know which three Justices are already with me, and they are all Republicans.  I need one more to get the case heard.

Juridical methodology became a serious form of study after my published masters thesis.  I remember my chair questioning if such a thing existed.  He went on to graduate at the top of his class at UT.  He was a well published Marxist theorist, and he was uncertain if such a thing exists.

I know all the way back to the Digest of Justinian how the issue of judicial immunity was handled.  Even the original opinion by the Supreme Court found immunity did not exist under our constitution, but because of congressional pressure they changed their mind and turned the 11th Amendment on its head wherein it is used way outside of its plain language and the minutes which record the debate as to its purpose.

Mike Hernandez is going to have to hire a historian lawyer at $1,500 an hour to address my arguments.  The judge will know they are well researched.  Typically in such a case a trial judge will go with the basic immunity and then issue a dissent against their own opinion so as to encourage more in depth analysis at a higher level.  This is proper conduct and what I will expect from the trial judge.  It is just a step at a time to prepare the debate for the Supreme Court. 

BISD IN COMPLETE DENIAL BECAUSE ALL OF THE TRUSTEES ARE COMPROMISED

With the federal government overseeing the TEA, and the TEA now formally investigating BISD and Special Services, the Board has no action on or discussion of set for Special Services for Tuesday.  There are 4 people set for resignation.  Maybe there is something in that.  There is no effort to reorganize the Board, so Cesar Lopez's faltering ship continues adrift in the seas of chaos.

What a sad state of affairs.  People tell me all of the trustees up for reelection will survive.  Others tell me Otis Powers will save the day.  I'm still laughing at that one.  Recycling failure is not moving forward.   No one with self respect wants the job because unless they have a majority of 4 they themselves become part of the problem

I am told all of the time there are three to make radical change.  But all three are cowards.  The law allows for them to speak up about what is happening, but as consummate cowards they remain silent and allow the children and teachers to suffer.   In my opinion the three are worse than the majority 4.



ZEKE SILVA, ALEX DOMINGUEZ'S WELFARE QUEEN LIVING OFF OF TAXPAYER MONEY ACCUSES RENE OLIVEIRA OF BEING A COWARD FOR ADMITTING TO HIS MISTAKE, WHILE ZEKE USES HIS ASSOCIATION WITH DA SAENZ TO ENDLESSLY DELAY  THE TRIAL OF HIS SECOND FELONY DWI.  WHAT DOES ZEKE KNOW ABOUT SAENZ TO BE ENTITLED TO SUCH PRIVILEGE NOT AFFORDED ANYONE ELSE?

More in about an hour.  Going for documents.

SORRY FOR DELAY - ENDLESS PHONE CALLS ON THE PORT ELECTION - I WILL TELL MY READERS WHAT I AM TELLING EVERYONE - THE RESULTS ARE ANY ONE'S GUESS

FIRST ZEKE SILVA'S BOND

The bond was set at $20,000, which was covered by a bondsman.  I would say this is about right for a second felony DWI claim.  But unlike Montoya because there is no public record of the conditions of bond, I am not going to claim Zeke got special privilege when they failed to impose the standard conditions under these circumstances.  For reasons unknown to me you rarely see conditions of bond.  So with no documents yet filed on Rene Oliveira how does Montoya claim no additional restrictions were imposed on Rene Oliviera?  He cannot, but Alex Dominguez only has a drama queen campaign so that is how things are reported.

I will not presume such a thing on Zeke because I was not able to see the conditions of Bond.

I will also hold to what I have said for years.  DA Saenz, the magistrates, and the judges all get an F when it comes to bonds, and conditions of bonds for DWI.  MADD is a joke because they remain silent so long as they get their cut of the fines.  I can assure you in Dallas MADD would be marching in the streets if DWI's were handled in Dallas as they are here - no big deal.

ZEKE FAKE NEWS BLOW IT OUT HIS ASS

He suggests anyone else would have 3-felony charges under the facts of Rene Oliveira's alleged DWI.  And yes go back and read his admission.  Did he admit for showing poor judgment for leaving the scene or for drinking?

First of all if no one was injured all he is require to do is leave his identifying information.  Like I said the Dallas police will not even send anyone unless there is a claim of injury.  But even if there is a claim of injury it can be a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the facts.

Zeke knows from first hand experience how felony charges work.  There has to be an investigation and then the facts presented to a grand jury.  Zeke was arrest on what became his second felony DWI in November of 2016, because of the time needed for an investigation and presentation to a grand jury he was not indicted and formally charged until March 2017.  But in Oliveira's case he alleges a cover up because he was not charged with a felony at the scene.

Zeke please tell my readers why were you entitled to a long investigation before being charged and that is not privilege, but the DA following procedure and not immediately charging Oliveira with a felony before investigation is special treatment.

THE COUNTY WELFARE QUEEN

Zeke is not smart.  On his FB page be brags about how his average driver earns about a $1000 a week take home.  This is good, very good.  He has lucky hard working workers.  But with this reality can you imagine how much his business must be earning.  Then there is the coffee shop earning.

Zeke yells compadreism all of the time.  But for trashing everyone opposing Saenz he got a cushy job with Saenz, until they had a falling out and then he began to trash Saenz.  Then for trashing everyone opposing Dominguez he got a cushy job with the county.  Who does he think he is fooling?

So by his own accounts he has two successful businesses, and still needs the county job which by all rights belongs to one of the many unemployed people who would love the job.

But Zeke is greedy and needs his public paycheck and does not care who is out a job so long as he gets his money from the county, while running two successful businesses.

The fact Alex Dominguez accepts all of this proves he is no better than Rene Oliveira.  Like I said I get to vote in this one, and I am voting for neither.  I just hate Alex Dominguez's holier than thou campaign when in fact he is no better than the worst of the worst of the elected officials of Cameron county.  This does not excuse Rene Oliveira's dismal record.

MIKE HERNANDEZ BACKED BY AN ATTORNEY WHO WOULD SUE GOD FOR HIM FOR MAKING HIM STUPID IF MIKE WOULD PAY, TAKES THE BAIT AND SINKS HIMSELF DEEPER INTO THE FEDERAL LAWSUIT - MORE DECEPTION FILED WITH THE TEXAS SUPREME COURT

I have been pretty clear, I have no chance of winning this in state court.  It may be as early as this Friday morning's orders that my Petition for Review is denied.  The fact there are conflicting appellate court opinions on the legal issue will not matter to the Texas Supreme Court.

People have paid investigators to learn who I work for.  Most of my work is very confidential.  It has been years in the making, but the federal lawsuit will ask the federal judge to assign a master to oversee the Office of Court Administration.  Mike Hernandez and his con artist lying ways is just one of many con artists named in the lawsuit.  This is a lawsuit which shows case after case wherein no matter the issue and no matter how solid the case law is, the Texas Supreme Court has ordered I be denied redress.

It is truly an extraordinary allegation.  But in this case the law was and remains black and white.  While the case is on appeal the trial court must stand down.  The judge refused and the Texas Supreme Court was asked to stop her.  They refused. I have maybe 5 or 6 mandamuses on this issue.  They just ignored it.  I knew they would thereby giving me the evidence I need for futility.  

They just issued an injunction against Judge Bañales based on the case law I created concerning a recusal against a judge.  As to the State Bar we faced the same issue.  I cited the same case law which won me the issue in Flores v. Banner - mandamus denied.  These are two separate examples.

There are at least 20.  

So my goal with Mike has been to further create a record for the big federal lawsuit, which I am now being told because it involves perjury by a federal judge I have jurisdiction in Washington DC.  Mike will never find a lawyer to represent him before a federal judge in Washington DC.  If he does he will spend at least  $250, 000 or more.  

OKAY THE LATEST CON BY MIKE HERNANDEZ BEFORE THE TEXAS SUPREME COURT

The following is from Mike's Response to my Motion for Sanctions, concerning his relationship with Juan Montoya" - click to enlarge:


In addition to the Response conflicting with Hernandez's own emails, it is defective.  My evidence is verified and sworn to.  What you see is a summary by Mike's lawyer with no sworn statement from Mike denying anything.  Given the fact he has already once been caught misleading the court with a sworn to statement, there was no way his lawyers were going to allow him to sign anything.

Below I give you the previous sworn to misleading statement.

Oh in one of the more bizarre claims by Mike's lawyers they blame me for damaging his reputation by posting Montoya's not mine, claim Mike is trying to buy the Port election.



The following is from emails sent by Mike Hernandez to Duardo Paz Martinez:

"I HAVE DEFINITELY SUPPORTED HIS [Montoya] SITE BUT NOT REALLY IN A VERY LARGE WAY.

"From Mike Hernandez – To Duardo Paz-Martinez Today at 2:27 PM
My cousin gives him $400 per month to cover some of his overhead and I think it started a month or two ago. I have no direct involvement with Juan."
WHY MIKE DID NOT VERIFY THESE CLAIMS AND WHY AS A MATTER AS LAW MINE ARE TAKEN AS TRUE
The Rules of Appellate Procedure require the person who signs the pleading verify they have read the factual allegations and that based on their investigation they are true and correct.  This mandatory certificate is not included in Mike's Response.
Second the law is black and white, because my claims are verified under oath they are taken as undisputed fact, unless countered by a sworn to denial by Mike Hernandez.  No such denial  exists.  Under the law I win, but the Texas Supreme Court will ignore the law because no matter the facts or law, they have decided because of my quite work against the corruption in the legal field in Texas I must be silenced and denied redress.  They know I am paid to do what I do.  My benefactor is not going away.  These cases of judicial corruption are piling up, and Mike is going to be complaining to his attorney how is he part of a federal lawsuit involving people he has never heard of?  Answer, he took advantage of the corruption for his own benefit to silence speech and corrupt the judicial process.
MIKE'S PREVIOUS MISLEADING SWORN TO STATEMENTS:
So on November 17, 2017, Hernandez in an email admits through Jose Angel Gutierrez I was trying to communicate with him, and he would have nothing to do with it.  This is from Mike's email. 


To Duardo Paz-Martinez Today at 10:43 AM
That is a complete falsehood. I spoke with him in the phone during the Port elections and all of a sudden he literally goes off crying about his dying veteran brother and how he could not afford his cancer treatments. After literally 10 minutes I simply asked him, “how much does he need to stay alive?” which I assumed was the reason for his conduct. Then he flips a switch the next day and posts that I was trying to pay him off to endorse a candidate, which never came out of my mouth. That’s when I texted him that I would not deal with him anymore and I haven’t. When he saw that I was talking to you, he then contacted (Jose Angel) Gutierrez in an attempt to get back in contact with me. That is not going to happen.
Thanks again.
Later in an affidavit Mike Hernandez said that before the alleged December 2, 2016, defamatory act, I never tried to contact him.  On November 17, 2016, he admitted I tried to contact him through Jose Angel Gutierrez.  This was my only option because my emails to him came back as blocked.

Mikes sworn statement.


After the above his lawyers certainly could not chance a second misleading sworn to statement, so Mike signed nothing denying my claims.
MIKES PRIMA FACIE FRIVOLOUS LAWSUIT
If I were to file such a frivolous lawsuit on its face against Montoya and Hernandez, Montoya would stroke out during his post while having a meltdown with his anger.  But Mike pays him $400 a month to run cover for him, and Montoya claims my non-existent suit is frivolous.
Here are the factual claims against me by Mike Hernandez.  His lawyer was given months to fix the problem and did nothing until after the appeal was perfected, which by that time was too late.
To put this into context we must consider what you must allege in a lawsuit to state a claim for defamation.  As you can see Mike Hernandez through his lawyers never alleged any published statement by me as written or spoken.
A claim for defamation under Texas law has three elements: The defendant (1) published a statement; (2) that was defamatory concerning the defendant; (3) while acting with actual malice (if the plaintiff was a public official or figure) or with negligence (if the plaintiff was a private individual) regarding the truth of the statement. WFAA–TV, Inc. v. McLemore, 978 S.W.2d 568, 571 (Tex.1998)
Based on the below factual allegations made by Mike Hernandez will someone tell me the "published statement."

THE BOTTOM LINE WHEN IT COMES TO MIKE HERNANDEZ


Again, as soon as Friday the Texas Supreme Court could deny my Petition for Review.  I knew this the day Mike sued me.  Under Rucker Feldman the federal courts can intervene because the underlying case remains pending.  My challenge was to create the evidence of futility to add to the other lawsuits.  Mike handed me all the evidence of futility I needed.  He was so easily played because I know his self destructive ego.
I would love to be a fly on the wall when Carlos Marin's lawyer tells him it will cost him $250,000 because of his association with Mike Hernandez.  That relationship will explode as Ambiotec and Carlos Marin are permanently injured.

SUNDAY'S POLITICAL ADS

I find newspaper political ads basically of very little value.  But Alex Dominguez continues to show he has no idea how to run an ad, or even who is audience is.  He has put forth not one idea as to how things will be better under him.  Job training is a major problem in our area.  Not a word on this key issue from Dominquez or Oliveira, or Oliveira for that matter.

ALEX DOMINGUEZ

He is oblivious as to who reads the Herald.  It is not young people, and I suspect most of their readers are over 40 or even 50.  Many subscribe over tradition and never even look at it, or if they do they just look at the headlines to see if the story interests them.

I have said this same thing about many ads and the truth remains the truth regardless of who is running the ads. Cluttered ads are not seen or read.  Alex Dominguez's ad this morning is like a hoarder's home impossible to discern any thing.  It appears to be all negative with not one idea as to how to make the life of the constituents better.  I literally could not get through the ad.

You see Alex, older people have problems focusing on hoarder ads. They are not going to look at it. Also all of the polls show people are tired of the negativity.  With all the endless negativity against Trump his positive numbers are going up.  

RENE OLIVEIRA

Rene had two uplifting positive ads.  They did contain empty political platitudes - so in the end other than being readable and positive, the ads did nothing to inform.

JOHN WOOD AND JAVIER VERA

Both had positive ads about the Port and its growth.  This is what people want to hear.

CESAR LOPEZ

He bought one of those small stickers the Herald places on the front page.  It was a platitude small statement with nothing to offer.

TSC

If anyone had an ad, I did not see it, same for Steve Guerra in the Port Election.  They could have been there but they would have been so small, my old eyes missed them.

TO THE TROLLS

There is one particular troll who insists I am protecting Oliveira and if I would just take his advice I would have the best blog on the planet.  The comments are not getting through.  I challenged him to copy and paste his claims against me based on my writings and of course he could not.

I refuse to do a legal analysis based on a Herald edited police press release.  Doing an analysis on edited information is reckless.

But what is really funny the trolls are missing key parts of the edited press release.  They claim Rene is married.  They claim he was detained at his home and not the scene.  They claim the victim had his business card which is how they identified him.  Rene claims he gave his business card to the victim.  There is no claim of injury anywhere by anyone, but if you believe the trolls the funerals are today.

There is more to this story which could hurt Rene or help him.  His only smart move is to plead guilty this week and be done with it.  He should make it clear he has ordered his insurance company to pay for all repairs and a rental.

If the passenger was injured, the police report will show they were transported to the hospital.  How about let's getting facts before we allow the trolls to publish endless disinformation.

One troll asked in typical fashion about the bond, because they are too lazy to read the story in the Herald.  Bond was $2,500.  Now Ben Neece with Montoya having previous DWI's gave Montoya a PR bond on the new DWI.  Now remember in the course of about a year Montoya got three DWI's.  Standard practice is, when you have a pending DWI and you get another one, your bond is pulled and a higher one is set, in addition to additional restrictions being put on you while driving.  On DWI two Ben Neece refused to pull Montoya's PR bond and gave him another.  On the third DWI Ben Neece refused to pull the two previous PR bonds and gave him yet another one.

So why is the troll not asking about Montoya's privileges from Ben Neece, while allowing people  to believe Oliveira got privilege on his bond at $2,500?  I can assure you in Dallas  a new DWI while you have two pending would have resulted in no bond, and the third one being charged as a felony.  Ben Neece covered it all up for Montoya.

Montoya says nothing about all of the privilege Zeke Silva is getting on his 2nd felony DWI charge [still innocent until proven guilty] .  The online system does not say the amount of the bond.  I will look at the hard copies on Monday to compare Zeke Silva's bond for a second felony DWI vs. Oliveira's misdemeanor DWI bond.

To be clear Cameron County is terrible in how it handles DWI's.  DA Saenz and the magistrates basically encourage DWI's.  In Dallas if you plead guilty or no contest you will take the conviction.  There will be no lesser included offense.  And you will have to take all of the requisite courses.  I support this for everyone.

JAVIER VERA GETS OUT FACTUALLY BASED MAILER ON EVE OF THE END OF EARLY VOTING


STORIES ABOUND RENE OLIVIERA ARRESTED FOR MISDEMEANOR DWI

Because Montoya knows nothing about journalism, his story fails to tell you Oliviera is innocent until proven guilty.  This is journalism 101.

I really did not want to do this story because it is already out there, but the claim will come I am covering for Rene.  For a long time I have made it clear there is no chance in hell I would ever vote for him, so such a claim is false.

The story is 100% newsworthy, but in this case the motivations is 100% political gamesmanship by Montoya and Alex Dominguez. The political gamesmanship does not take away from the fact the story is very newsworthy.

SO WHY DO I SAY POLITICAL GAMESMANSHIP?

In November 2016, Alex Dominguez's administrative assistant Zeke Silva was arrested for his second felony DWI.  He was indicted formally in March 2017. Since then he has been granted one continuance after another.  Saenz just goes along.  If you think this is not privilege you know nothing about privilege.

In the latest continuance the trial was delayed until May 21, 2018, so it will not influence early voting.

If this were Ernie Hernandez's administrative assistant Montoya would be yelling from roof tops daily about the corruption and favoritism.  But it is not, it is Alex Dominguez's administrative assistant so he gets a pass, and the corruption continues.

The privilege being given to Zeke Silva does not take away from the newsworthiness of the Oliviera alleged arrest.  I will say a source who would know confirmed same on the phone for me a few minutes ago.

WHAT RENE SHOULD DO?

Rene should flip the story against Alex Dominguez by having his lawyer get the case set next week for a plea bargain and just plead guilty and put it behind him.  Rene then gets to say, a responsible and respectful elected official accepts responsibility for his actions.  So why is Alex Dominguez helping his administrative assistant Zeke Silva avoid his trial for a year and a half?

The story will then become about Alex Dominguez and the privilege Zeke Silva is receiving, while Rene has the issue behind him.

Thursday, April 26, 2018





Montoya and Mike Hernandez reach new low in pathetic lie to make Port Commissioners look bad.  With the exception of the yellow home, everyone of these limited camping homes - 4 in all - have holes in them and are uninhabitable.  Also if you look at the yellow house, it is not on the water as Montoya wants you to believe.  All lies, because that is all Montoya and Hernandez have.  The funny thing is if you ask me who is going to win, I will tell you it is any one's guess.  I say everyone has an equal chance of winning.  If the past is any indication, the election is already over because people have already made up their mind and the decision will be made in early voting which is over for all practical purposes.

This story bought and paid for by Hernandez was just plain stupid.

Okay for Montoya I will agree this house is pristine.  The house in "Green Acres" was a palace compared to his house.


IN THE STORY ONE OF THESE SO CALLED COMFORT HOMES 

From Montoya. "The port does not permit the structures to be permanent, but looking at the structures, it is obvious that a person could live in relative comfort as long as there is drinking water and stored water for domestic purposes."

There are only 4 structures.  You are looking at them. Montoya again. ""They ought to start a new method, otherwise it will be the same old connected individuals who will continue to enjoy these prime properties subsidized by the port taxpayers," said one."

Who are these connected families living in these dilapidated shacks, save the yellow one, and maybe one other which is always boarded up.

One are the the children of the famous "Gordon's"  every one's fish and bait shop in Brownsville.  Yes I have a very indirect familial connect.  My nephew's wive is Sheila Montes, not Monters.  They are the children and the late Gordon and Jackie Williams.  I can assure you their beach front property in Port Isabel is something, but not their shack.

Pristine property?  What an effing joke.  Fact Montoya and Hernandez do not tell you.  For free I can set up my tent which sleeps 12 in front of any of these shacks closer to the water, start my generator for AC, and computers to watch movies at night, and sleep on comfy blown up mattresses, while taking a dump in the dunes in front of these shacks.  And yes, my dumps are pristine.

God, Mike Hernandez has lost it.  This is way way too funny.

SPACE X - ANOTHER HERNANDEZ LIE BECAUSE THAT IS ALL THE CON ARTIST HAS

In the interest of full disclosure, the BV has questioned whether Space X has left us because the city failed to produce the runway needed for Space X.  Guys there is no new airport or runway.  Space X will have to land their rockets in San Antonio unless the slightly larger runway at the Corpus Christi Naval Air Station will due.

By chance based on Montoya's bogus attack on Space X as another failure I was driving out there which is only minutes from me, when I checked his blog and read someone posted the pictures of the houses were fake.  Since I was already at Space X I decided to also go to the houses.

Here is a fact.  Press reports in the last few weeks has Space X applying for the permits to drop its rockets in the gulf and start construction on the launch pad.  But lets look at the pictures taken today.

The first is the UT Space X project more or less across the way from Space X.  The tracking satellites already installed by Space X, and the cement fenced off area where construction is about to start on the launch pad.  Just another Montoya/Hernandez lie and con.




If you are to believe Montoya/Hernandez, someone forgot to tell UT Space X abandoned Boca Chica, and for that matter Cameron County which is moving forward on the observation amphitheater.

Boca Chica was chosen by Space X based on science and not on the fictitious promises of the inept Brownsville City Commission.  The science is still there. but the city failed to deliver on the runway.

THE FOLLOWING TWO GRAPHICS BEST DESCRIBE MIKE HERNANDEZ AND OP1033




The first of course was created by Montoya before he was put on Mike Hernandez's payroll.

THE BIG LOSER IS CARLOS MARIN AND AMBIOTEC

All of these new companies coming into the Port know Carlos Marin and Ambiotec was part of the lies and trashing of their businesses.  Let's see if Ambiotec now gets any of the engineering contracts.

KEEP THIS ECONOMIC GIANT MOVING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION AND VOTE FOR 



Or you can vote for the chumps backed by Mike Hernandez.



THE BENEVOLENT SLEEPING GIANT GULLIVER [ THE PORT] AWAKES AND MIKE HERNANDEZ AND HIS CABAL OF LEMMINGS SEEK TO DESTROY ITS IMAGINE TO THE WORLD FOR CONTROL

Hernandez propagandist Montoya wants you to believe it is a big conspiracy to influence the election that the  Big River Steel deal was just announced.  As is always the case with Montoya he is very short on facts, and instead spins a nefarious conspiracy to destroy anything not liked by Mike Hernandez because it does not serve his lemmings seeking to control the Port.

The real story also involves OmniTRAX, which Montoya attacks.  He never explains all of the financial benefits which came to the Port by selling the railroad, and the obligations put in OmniTRAX to develop the Port.

On May 3, 2018,  this was the Port's press release: "Alan Simon, vice president of industrial development for Denver-based OmniTRAX, which is in charge of developing the port’s industrial base, said Arkansas attracted the first Big River Steel facility through major cash incentives via the state legislature."

When the state is part of the deal you are not going to see the stupid type contracts entered into by the BPUB and Tenaska. But while tell you there is state oversight?  Oh, yea, that does not fit Montoya's and Hernandez's narrative. 

Also from the Port: "Besides the abatement, key incentives would come in the form of land discounts and bond financing from the port and OmniTRAX; capital investment from OmniTRAX parent company The Broe Group"  You see OmniTRAX is not just making money on the Port's old railroad, they have a duty to invest in future business for the Port.  This is a perfect example of a private, government partnership.  But Mike Hernandez does not want you to know this because it proves the Port is on the right track and thriving.  So instead Mike Hernandez pays his propagandist to attack the progress so he can place his lemmings on the Port.

And before Montoya lies about the tax abatements, the deal only allows for the tax abatements to go in place once the facility is built and its full value is known.

This is how a deal is done.  

OmniTRAX was key in helping to bring Big River Steel to our Port.  The obligation imposed on OmniTRAX Montoya presumingly asserts is not newsworthy.  The only thing newsworthy is comparing it to the failed Tenaska deal.

Eventhough Tenaska was a disaster because of a lack of true oversight, it still had a very important purpose for helping to develop the Port, thereby jobs and taxes.

There is no question Tenaska was a disaster.  The purpose behind it was jobs which the additional electricity generation would mean for our area.  From the Port on the history and delay in securing this contract. "Eduardo Campirano, port director and CEO, said port officials have tried for decades to attract a steel mill, though an insufficient supply of electricity in the Brownsville area always was the main stumbling block. Recent upgrades to the Rio Grande Valley’s power grid have eliminated that obstacle, he said."

Montoya's dishonesty in Tenaska comes in the form of his lie and bogus attack on BISD Trustee Phil Cowen when Cowen tried to have the Board hire an attorney to look at going after BPUB and Tenaska for a roll back of the price of electricity and recovering the money already lost.  Montoya in one of his more bizarre twists tried to turn it into a back door attempt for the Board to pay for Elizondo's criminal defense which is a black and white violation of state law.  But attacking the Cowens to settle a score is what Mike Hernandez pays him to do.

If you want development you must have a plan for expanding electricity generation and water.  We are still without a water plan.  

From this morning's Herald. "The Brownsville plant, like the Osceola facility, would support approximately 500 full-time jobs with an average annual salary of $75,000."   This is not some number out of a hat.  It can be compared to the Arkansas plant.


THE BIG QUESTION IS - WHAT WILL WE DO TO MAKE SURE WE HAVE WORKERS READY FOR THE JOBS?  



TEXAS SUPREME COURT ENJOINS VISITING JUDGE BANALES FROM PROCEEDING IN CASE BASED ON CASE LAW CREATED BY THE BV'S EDITOR - INJUNCTION AGAINST MIKE HERNANDEZ COMMUNICATING WITH MONTOYA REMAINS PENDING

 Flores v. Banner, 932S.W.2d 500, 501 (Tex. 1996), in part stands for the proposition that you do not have to object to a visiting judge 10 days before the hearing if you received notice of the assignment of the visiting judge less than 10 days before the hearing.  Judge Bañales believed the law did not apply to him so the Texas Supreme Court stopped him in his place.


What makes this interesting is when I cite my own created case law, the Texas Supreme Court turns me down.  This is part of the federal lawsuit on the issue of futility.  The fact I can now prove when a big insurance company cites my case law and gets an injunction, and I cannot in other cases, means there is bias.  

Montoya cannot explain this to you because one - he is paid to lie, and two the only thing he knows about the law is getting arrested and going to jail.

JOHN WOOD WAKES SLEEPING GIANT AT PORT, AND NOW AFTER HIS DISASTROUS LEADERSHIP AT BISD CESAR LOPEZ WANTS CONTROL OF THE MONEY

Cesar Lopez at BISD has consistently turned a blind eye to the special needs children and is now turning a blind I to FERPA violations through the illegal release of children's confidential information, and the release of confidential personnel information.
