AS COUNTY GETS CAUGHT UP THE NUMBERS WHILE HIGH APPEAR BETTER

Cameron county 1265 new cases
Brownsville 559 new cases
Children 9 and younger 13 new cases
Children 10-19, 57 new cases
11 Processed as dying

Again I say processed because they are behind in the paperwork.  The real number is higher

REMI GARZA EXPLAINS WHY TEXAS CAN DELIVER THE RESULTS ON ELECTION NIGHT- and ADELA GARZA GOES ALL TRUMP BY CREATING A CONCERN THE ELECTION RETURNS CANNOT BE TRUSTED

I have no idea why Adela Garza is on the attack against Remi Garza, but the BV reported last week early voting was changed to start on the 13th of October.  Remi Garza was fully aware of this.  Why Adela Garza feels compelled to start a political war with an Elections Administrator who has done an amazing job along with his staff during the most difficult  times, tells me she is pulling a Trump and looking for an argument that the election results cannot be trusted.  Well as a  Republican it shocks no one Adela Garza would create a political war to put the election results into question.  Why I do not know, because as far as I can  tell she has no meaningful opponent and her win is guaranteed. 

REMI GARZA EXPLAINS HOW THE COUNT WORKS AND WHY AFTER THE POLLS CLOSE HE WILL HAVE THE EARLY VOTE AND MAIL BALLOT RESULTS

Texas law is better for these times.  In other states they cannot start to tabulate early voting or mail ballots until after the polls close.  Texas allows for the calculations before the polls close.

From Remi Garza:

"We can start verifying signatures before the close of early voting, but we cannot start processing the actual envelopes until early voting ends. In the past we haven't had to use a signature verification committee separate from the early voting ballot board‎ because the volume has not been that large. This November we might have to use it and start processing them sooner than usual. We usually can wait until the Monday before the election to start. I can see us starting earlier, maybe even Saturday. "

This is leadership and planning in advance to insure the results can be released early on election night.  What the hell is Adela's problem?

IF ADELA DECIDES TO KEEP UP THESE DIVISIVE ATTACKS A LA DONALD TRUMP, SHE MIGHT FIND PEOPLE FUNDING HER OPPONENT SO AS TO SEND HER ASS PACKING

Yes people it was under TSC Board President Adela Garza the removal of Robert W. Lee's name from the youth center was tabled.  Would you expect anything less from a Trump Republican?



OUR CHILDREN ARE THE GUINEA PIGS SO POLITICO CAN LOOK GOOD - THIS WILL NOT END WELL


"Georgia's largest school district has confirmed that around 260 employees have either tested positive for Covid-19 or have been exposed.
The Gwinnett County School District (GCPS) employees won't be returning to school just yet as districts across the country continue to adjust their back-to-school plans to prevent the spread of the virus.
The situation in Gwinnett is fluid, GCPS spokeswoman Sloan Roach told CNN in an email Sunday evening.
"As of last Thursday, we had approximately 260 employees who had been excluded from work due to a positive case or contact with a case," Roach said. "This number is fluid as we continue to have new reports and others who are returning to work," she added."

NEWSFLASH TEXAS:  More people died of Covid in Texas during July than any other state.  
With Governor Abbott's long list of exempt organizations from following the mandates, the spread is not going to stop.  
Trey Mendez and Eddie Treviño can institute orders now ending all of these exemptions.  They simply prefer to do nothing and then blame Abbott.
To protect a contract for a compadre they will allow the city or county to be sued. 
But to defend your right to life, they will not allow the city to be subjected to a suit by the governor.  Let him sue.  The PR against Abbott will be national - he will have no choice but to act.  But Trey Mendez and Eddie Treviño are cowards and will never stand to protect the people. 

THROUGH INTENTIONAL NEGLECT THE COB COMMISSION AN COUNTY COMMISSION HAVE SOUGHT TO KILL OUR SENIORS

In other places in the country what I am about to describe is already happening.  But Texas is about corporate, state, county and municipal welfare.  No one does anything unless the feds come in and give it to them.

There are hundreds of seniors in the county who know they are sick and cannot get tested.  If through a phone conference their doctor refers them for a Covid test, we then expect 80 years olds to sit in cars all day in hopes they will get tested before they run out.  We then expect them to wait up to 10 days for a result.  The end result is they are taken by ambulance to the hospital where they die.

WE NEED SPECIAL TESTING SITES FOR PEOPLE 60 AND OLDER

Other than greed and extreme incompetence, the city and county refuse to order the same day testing equipment. We need special testing centers for only seniors where they get same day results.

This is not about money.  Both the county and the city have the ability to delay contracts and projects to redirect money for Covid.  But that will interfere their commitments to their compadres.

This is so doable.  But the city commission and county commission are going to just allow the disaster facing seniors to continue.

DEEPER INTO THE ABYSS OF COVID

It believed these numbers are not real time.  Normally Cameron County does not release Sunday numbers, but the county now has outside help.

These numbers are believed to be somewhere between 2-4 weeks old and may be more than one day.

CAMERON COUNTY NEW POSITIVES 1439
BROWNSVILLE NEW POSITIVES 935
CHILDREN 9 AND UNDER 53
CHILDREN BETWEEN 10 AND 19 84
21 DEAD IN THE COUNTY WITH 10 DEAD IN BROWNSVILLE

Click for County Chart

Over the next couple of days the numbers are expected to get worse until the outside officials are able to get the paperwork caught up to be real time, and then it is believed the numbers will drop.

But no matter how you cut it, this is not good

A BOTTOM LINE HARD CORE FACT:

Trey Mendez and Eddie Treviño always had the legal authority to force facial coverings in the stores.  They  chose to keep the business community happy instead of protecting the people.  This resulted in massive spread.  The anti-maskers are equally responsible and those who are positive did it to themselves.  They need to take responsibility for their actions.

There are so many asymptomatic people out there this is not going to stop.  Yes it is true someone spreading the virus today, ,may not be still spreading it in three weeks but the people they gave it to will be spreading it.



DR. BIRX CALLS FOR FACIAL COVERINGS IN THE HOME

"To everybody who lives in a rural area, you are not immune or protected from this virus," Birx said. "If you're in multi-generational households, and there's an outbreak in your rural area or in your city, you need to really consider wearing a mask at home, assuming that you're positive, if you have individuals in your households with comorbidities."

cnn

IS THERE FRICTION BETWEEN THE COB AND COUNTY ON THE COUNT

Let me say first Trey Mendez is saying we are passed the worst of it based on the unreported numbers.  What this means based on what they expect to report during the next few days will show a drop in numbers once they get caught up.

I see it maybe in time but the death count for Brownsville being reported by Trey is so much higher than the county is reporting, it seems to me we are going to see a big jump.  As the BV reported the other day based on state numbers the NYT reported Cameron County was under reporting by about a 100 people. 

The county had plenty of notice that as a Latino community we were going to get hit hard.  The county did nothing to prepare.  It just let the paperwork pile up until social media called them out, and then they asked for help.

A leader would have started the hiring process for help months ago.

HERE IS THE RIFFED

When this started according to Trey he and Eddie Treviño agreed to start testing right away.  The city kept its commitment and started testing.  Because of this the city probably saved a lot of lives and got people into treatment early.

Eddie Treviño on the other hand reneged on the testing promise and left the county exposed.  So the question is how many people died because the county refused to start testing as it promised.

NOW WE HAVE TREY PUBLISHING THE REAL NUMBERS OF THE DEATHS WHILE  EDDIE TREVINO CONTINUES WITH HIS EXCUSE THEY WERE UNDERSTAFFED BECAUSE THEY FAILED TO PLAN

What we have is a good old fashion debate of who is more to blame.  Clearly the county failed us at every level.  The true numbers being put out by Trey are not making Treviño look good.

Now it is time for Trey to verify Eddie reneged on the testing promise. 


A NYT HEADLINE THAT SHOULD GIVE YOU PAUSE

"

Infections Swamp the U.S., Which Recorded 42% of All Its Coronavirus Cases in July

Thousands in Berlin protest Germany’s coronavirus measures. The virus is picking up speed in the Midwest. A summer camp in Georgia apologizes for hosting a retreat after hundreds who attended were infected."
NYT
People are not getting it.  Yesterday I posted a video of a Mississippi high school which just opened.  The kids have no facial coverings and are packed in side by  side.  Last night it was reported Mississippi has the highest per capita Covid rate in the U.S.  
So long as we have no national policy, the spread will continue.  There is no stopping this.

NEW NUMBERS COMPLETE DISASTER

Now County Judge Eddie Treviño wants you to know these numbers are not really real, they are catch up numbers now that the government sent workers  to help with the paperwork.  He got caught lying about the numbers and now calls it transparent to  report the back up numbers and then tells you not to worry because they are not the real time numbers. 

CAMERON COUNTY 1,106 NEW CASES
BROWNSVILLE 664 NEW CASES
56 CHILDREN AGE 9 OR YOUNGER
66 CHILDREN AGES 10-19
10 DEATHS PROCESSED 

Tomorrow, has Trey Mendez called out Eddie Treviño on this deception





MISSISSIPPI SCHOOLS OPEN WITH COVID POSITIVE CHILDREN

"A Mississippi high school student has tested positive for coronavirus during the first week of classes, according to the Corinth School District.
"We have had an initial test positive at Corinth High school," district officials said on Friday.  
After conducting contact tracing at the school, anyone who came in contact with the student was asked to quarantine at home for 14 days, according to social media posts from the district.
Students who were asked to quarantine "should continue working digitally in order to be counted present," the district said on social media."
 Click and watch the video on the top right.  Look at the high school students.  It is a death wish.  There is no control.  I give this school district two weeks before it closes.  I blame the parents.  Be parents and stop allowing your children to make life and death decisions. 


CAMERON COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT PROCESSING THE PAPERWORK ON THOSE YOU HAVE LOST TO COVID

For months commissioners court watched things get worse by the minute and did nothing.  They could not make money on hiring more staff, so it was not a priority.  The money is for projects where their  compadres can make money and there is no money in processing the passing of your loved ones.

It is not enough no county commissioner is ever re-elected, history must record their part in the death of so many, the loss of family businesses, and all the pain and suffering.  We cannot let it go.  We must insure they each live with what they did. They should not be allowed one happy day in what is left of their miserable lives.  The same goes for the city commissioners and mayor.

A HOUSTON DOCTOR PLEADS WITH YOU

"“You have no idea my frustration when I leave the hospital, I’m heading home, and then in one of these outdoor malls I see a hundred cars, a bunch of young guys or young women having a party — no face masks, no nothing. That kills me,” he said. “People are not listening.”

ONCE AGAIN A REMINDER TO WOMEN, IF YOU FEEL LIKE YOUR DOCTOR IS DISMISSING YOU, FIND ANOTHER DOCTOR - WOMEN HAVE HEART DISEASE, THE MEDICAL SCHOOLS ARE JUST NOT TEACHING IT

The way women display a heart attack can be different than men.  Even today the medical schools are not clear in how they teach the difference,  The result is women needlessly dying of heart disease.

It was today in 1977, the doctors at Nassau County Medical Center refused to believe my mother when she said she was having a heart attack.  A week or so before I was with her when she had what today we would call a TIA.  The ER doctors treated her like shit.  I know what I saw and heard.

After they discharged her a few days later they took her back in an ambulance.  The same ER doctors diagnosed her with  female hysteria and put her in the psych ward.  The last my sister saw of her was when they were changing her after she vomited.

By the time my sister got back to the house, the call came mom had died from a heart attack.  The sac around her heart filled with fluid and it was over.

SO I SAY TO EVERY WOMEN OUT THERE, IF YOU THINK YOU ARE HAVING A HEART ATTACK GO TO 20 DOCTORS IF THAT IS WHAT IT TAKES TO GET ONE TO LISTEN

Had mom lived passed a 100 like so many of her aunts and uncles from her mother's side, she would be 101.  Instead she passed at 58.

My late sister who never left Brownsville the day before she died of a heart attack in her sleep, she was cleared by a well known cardiologist.  Ladies if you think you have heart disease go to San Antonio or Houston.  I have dealt with three cardiologists in Brownsville and it was not clear to me they knew the difference between the heart and the gallbladder.  I eventually forced a full cath and learned I was extremely clear of any blockage.  So I am good and will continue with the diet that got me to 62 with clean arteries. 

THIS STORY IS EVEN MORE IMPORTANT IN THIS TIME OF COVID

I have documented several stories of doctors sending children home with a fever and never even checking them for covid.  They then die of Covid.  Guys you must take control of your healthcare.

Yes doctors are overwhelmed, but remember in every decision they make they are thinking can they afford to use the swab to test you when all you have is a fever.  

We have intentionally abandoned our seniors.  They cannot sit in a car for hours waiting to get tested and then waiting days to get the results.  Many seniors are just staying home and hoping for the best, until the ambulance comes and it is too late.  It is criminal in how we have treated our seniors.

OUR HOSPITALS, COUNTY AND CITY ARE CRIMINAL IN THEIR MISMANAGEMENT OF COVID AND TESTING

If it is ever over, which I do not see for years, Congress will hold political hearings and then do nothing.  The courts are the best place for justice.  Even if all anyone can secure is a finding of extreme incompetence by our hospitals, county and city, that is a start.

I will bet the farm before this is over Trey Mendez takes up full time residence in San Antonio where he has an active law officer and he can start new without people knowing what he did to Brownsville.

AS TEXAS SLOWLY RECOVERS CAMERON COUNTY AND BROWNSVILLE GO DEEP INTO THE ABYSS

RECORD NUMBERS IS ALL I CAN SAY

816 NEW CASES IN CAMERON COUNTY
481 NEW CASES IN BROWNSVILLE
14 CHILDREN 9 OR YOUNGER
56 CHILDREN AGES 10-19
10 PROCESSED DEATHS [AGAIN WE KNOW THIS IS A LIE]

Click for Chart

People refuse to accept reality.  You must wear facial coverings in your home.  We have had mandatory facial coverings in the stores long enough for the numbers to start to level off such as the rest of the state.  But no, we get worse by the day.

We have no leadership.  We have no public service  commercials.  As Covid spreads to our children we have a narcissistic mayor taking publicity pictures with girl scouts with no facial coverings.  Then he hides behind their skirts by saying attacking the picture is to attack the girls.  NO TREY YOU PIECE A SHIT - THAT WOULD BE LIKE BLAMING THE RAPE VICTIM



FIRST OF ALL OUR TEACHERS NEED A 10% PAY INCREASE ACROSS THE BOARD - NOT THE ADMINISTRATORS, BUT THE TEACHERS



I THINK PEOPLE DO NOT APPRECIATE HOW FAST  TEACHERS HAD TO ADJUST TO A NEW TEACHING METHOD AND EXECUTE ON IT

The teachers, parents, and children are the experts and not the administrators. 

This morning I spoke with a teacher who said of her 18 students only 8 regularly participated with the online teaching.

WE NEED TO ABSOLUTELY STAND WITH THE TEACHERS AND HELP THEM TO GET THE KIDS ON LINE

There could be any number of reasons for the problem.  We are well past the time for Texas insuring every child has access to internet service.  

This is so doable because of our great teachers.  I hate to say it, but if a parent has no better excuse than it is an inconvenience to have their children doing distance learning, then we need special truancy rules for those parents.

I get some parents cannot help their kids.  Months ago I said BISD needs to ID these parents,  BISD did not. 

TODAY GOVERNOR ABBOTT SAID LOCAL OFFICIALS CANNOT CLOSE SCHOOLS

This is the job of the unions to handle.  The teachers are too busy learning how to teach under the circumstances, and from I have seen we all should be very, very proud of the teachers.  This is why I support an immediate 10% across the board raise for the  teachers.  Circumstances forced them to swim for themselves, and they did it.  This raises the question about how much state mandates and testing impair real teaching.  The teachers left to swim for themselves, met the challenge and we should respect them.

BISD NEEDS TO ID NOW THE CHILDREN WHO ARE NOT GETTING PARENTAL HELP, AND FORM A SOLUTION

Look we have a lot of prospective teachers who can earn college credit helping the  teachers to reach out the to the children whose parents cannot help them.

The problem is there is no innovation coming from BISD, the unions, TSC or UTRGV.

People let BISD understand you stand with the teachers and that you expect action from the Administrators.

THE AMBULANCE CAME AND WITHIN 2 DAYS THE WIFE THEN THE HUSBAND WERE DEAD FROM COVID

I will not name names.  I am holding on my policy of privacy unless the family asks that their story be told.

The ambulance pulled away.  One died on the July 28, and the other on the 29th.  I now have two fewer neighbors.

THE CRIMINAL CITY COMMISSION CONTINUES TO SIT ON $29 MILLION IN TENASKA MONEY AND REFUSE TO USE IT TO BUY SITE TESTING EQUIPMENT.  THE VA HAS THESE MACHINES AND ARE GETTING PEOPLE RESULTS IN 24 HOURS OR LESS.

If you are a veteran and have Covid you will get immediate care.  If you are just a retired BISD elderly couple you will wait and wait and wait and then just die.

Those in need of care can head out of the death center of Texas known as the LRGV and get treatment in San Antonio.

THE VA TO THEIR CREDIT HAS OPENED ITS SAN ANTONIO HOSPITAL TO CRITICAL CARE PATIENTS FROM STARR COUNTY - YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A VETERAN.

You know I do not trust the VA when it comes to my healthcare, but I have to say the VA is showing itself very responsive. I am confident my personal VA PCP in Harlingen is on top of the latest information.  I cannot say that about all doctors at the VA. I had to remove a lot of doctors to get to my current one, but I am lucky.  I am certain if I develop Covid he will make sure I get the best care even if it means sending me to San Antonio.  I would rather die at home than go into Valley Baptist.

THE PROBLEM WITH THE SPUTNIK VACCINE WHICH BEGINS WITH A SIMPLE PHONE BILL

The story is true.  I will be right back - going for coffee. What is a vaccine and the false hope some people are seeing.  And the others who will not  trust it.

In 1957, ATT was the only phone company.  In your bill you got a news blurb.  In the October bill was the blurb the U.S. would be first in space.  Within a day or two the Soviets launched Sputnik and were the first in space. 

My mentor at UTEP would once a semester bring that phone bill to class to show us you cannot always be first.

THE RUSSIANS CLAIM TO HAVE A VACCINE WHICH IS NOW IN MASS TESTING

I hope they are successful. But this is the Sputnik race again.  We use to actually play a game with a spalding ball called Sputnik.  What happened was a reality imbedded in our brains.

It is good there are many companies working on a vaccine, but when the press releases make it appear to be a race to see who is first, people will lose trust.

THE GOOD NEWS

Our government has already begun the process of preparing the delivery systems so when a vaccine is ready the delivery system will already be in place.

TRUST IS KEY

Many people are concerned that the expedited processes will compromise the vaccine.  What the government is doing is limiting red tape.  This is not the same as ignoring safety issues. 

BUT WE CANNOT BE PUSHED BY THE FACT THE RUSSIANS MAY HAVE BEAT US AGAIN.  I DON'T CARE.  I CARE ABOUT SAFETY.  I AM WORRIED THAT YESTERDAY ALL OF A SUDDEN THE READY DATE FOR OUR VACCINE WAS PUSHED UP AFTER THE RUSSIANS ANNOUNCE THEY HAD A VACCINE.  I DO NOT WANT ANOTHER SPUTNIK MESS.

Guys you may not like this, but I hope the  Russians have succeeded.  If they failed it will cause concern in the U.S. rushed research in the U.S. could end up with the failure in Russia. 

I do not care who is first.  I care about safety and effectiveness.










IT IS TIME WE START TO REQUEST OUR MAIL BALLOTS

Unlike some states, Texas does not require the polls be closed before your mail ballot can be tabulated.  This will insure the result of all the mail ballots are released on election night with the exception of some oversea ballots and late stragglers.

AN INTERESTING NOTE:  DONALD J; TRUMP HAS NEVER VOTED ABSENTEE FROM FLORIDA BECAUSE NO SUCH THING EXISTS.  FLORIDA ALLOWS ALL OF ITS VOTERS TO VOTE BY MAIL WITHOUT CAUSE.  SO WHY IS IT OKAY FOR FLORIDA TO ALLOW EVERYONE TO VOTE BY MAIL BUT NOT CALIFORNIA?  OH, THAT IS SIMPLE.  ONE VOTES REPUBLICAN AND THE OTHER VOTES DEMOCRAT

BUT TEXAS IS DIFFERENT ON ABSENTEE BALLOTS

In Texas in order to vote absentee you must be out of the area from the first day of early voting until election day.  If you are in town just one day during this period you do not qualify for an absentee ballot, so do not request one.

REQUESTING A BALLOT BASED ON DISABILITY

On this one the Texas Supreme Court opened the door to everyone voting based on their subjective understanding of a disability which can cause them an injury at the polls.  

BUT I WARN YOU IF THE ONLY REASON YOU ARE CLAIMING DISABILITY IS COVID, YOU ARE COMMITTING A CRIME. THIS IS SO IMPORTANT I WILL REPEAT IT AT THE END.



You will chose the November General Election option.Box 6a  Before clicking on the application copy the email address you see on the first page so you can paste it into box 9.  Make sure in box 4 you include your email or phone number so the elections office can contact you if they need to.

YOU MUST THEN MAIL THE APPLICATION WITHIN 4 DAYS OF EMAILING IT

WHY I AM CLAIMING DISABILITY

Even though my spinal stimulation has ended all neuropathic pain when I sleep if I stand more than 5 minutes the pain is back.  They have still not addressed the SI joint pain issue.  A decision on that surgery remains pending.  Also I have two respiration diseases.  I keep my pulse odometer with me to monitor my oxygen concentration levels.  

NOW, YOU  DO NOT HAVE TO SAY WHY YOU ARE CLAIMING DISABILITY, AND NO ONE CAN ASK YOU THE NATURE OF YOUR DISABILITY OR DEMAND YOU PRODUCE PROOF OF SAME.  THE TEXAS SUPREME COURT HAS FOUND THIS DECISION IS COMPLETELY SUBJECTIVE ON YOUR PART

WHO QUALIFIES ACCORDING TO THE TEXAS SUPREME COURT?

"Eligibility for voting by mail is provided by Chapter 82. Section 82.002(a), entitled “Disability”, provides that “[a] qualified voter is eligible for early voting by mail if the voter has a sickness or physical condition that prevents the voter from appearing at the polling place on election day without a likelihood of needing personal assistance or of injuring the voter’s health. "
" The State has conceded that “Respondents [MEANING ELECTIONS ADMINISTRATOR] have no discretion to do anything but determine whether the voter is entitled to vote by mail and process the application accordingly.” The State acknowledges that the Election Code does not require election clerks to “investigate each applicant’s disability.” Indeed, the Legislature rejected the requirement of a physician’s proof of disability for mail-in voting applications when it amended the Election Code in 1981. And the application form provided by the Secretary of State requires only that voters check a box indicating whether the reason  for seeking a ballot by mail is a disability.  The voter is not instructed to declare the nature of the underlying disability. The elected officials have placed in the hands of the voter the determination of whether in-person voting will cause a likelihood of injury due to a physical condition. 
The Texas Supreme Court has been clear. The decision of whether you will suffer an injury belongs to you. The State cannot question you on the issue.
FROM THE CONCURRING OPINION OF GUZMAN, LERHMANN, AND BUSBY
"rather, whether a voter is eligible to vote by mail ultimately depends on the voter’s own assessment of his or her individual health status"
The opinion is clear, if you have any condition which makes you more susceptible to Covid-19, you qualify for a mail ballot based on disability based on those other conditions. BUT AGAIN COVID 19 BY ITSELF IS NOT A BASIS FOR A MAIL BALLOT
It is your call, not mine. I have two verifiable respiratory conditions and will be seeking a mail ballot based on disability.

THE TEXAS DEMOCRATIC PARTY SHOULD BE PUTTING OUT A MAILER SIMILAR TO THIS, BUT WILL NOT BECAUSE GILBERT HINOJOSA IS WORTHLESS.

THE NUMBERS ARE NOT GETTING BETTER - THE NUMBERS AMONG CHILDREN EXPLODES

CAMERON COUNTY 731 CASES
BROWNSVILLE 419 CASES
CHILDREN UNDER AGE 9 19
CHILDREN 10-19 53
PROCESSED DEATHS 6


This is a record high for Cameron County.  The spread continues because our mayor in Brownsville, and county judge refuse to close the county and city down.  Who gives a crap if the governor sues.  We know they do not care, so who are they really protecting?  The business community who put them in office.

Processed deaths are those claimed by the county, but we know the county continues to mislead us.  The Herald is reporting 127 deaths so far this week based on its obituaries.  Why are these not reflected in the county numbers.  The county is claiming 206 dead.  The NYT is claiming 304 deaths.  We know it is in fact even higher.

Why does the county continue to hide the ages of the children the way they did before things got out of  control?

We are past the point of an attorney standing up for the people and filing the Removal Petition against Eddie Treviño based on incompetence. 

THE US IS NOW CONSISTENTLY LOSING OVER A 1000 PEOPLE A DAY - YESTERDAY WAS 1449. 




EXACTLY HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE DYING?

One funeral home is giving us a good insight. "“The surge started in the first week of July,” Vega said. “It still really hasn’t decreased. We’re backed up by a couple of weeks.”


"We’re backed up by a couple of weeks.”

I have spent hours trying to bring up an old Obit list in the Herald to compare to today's 127 so far this week.  There is no way a year ago the Herald was  reporting a 127 obituaries in a week.

If someone else can figure it out please post it here or give it to your favorite blogger, I do not care.  We just need the number published.

When I read the obituaries and see so many families are not having any service it saddens me.  But there is no money.

We cannot allow these  deaths to pass without protest.  Cameron County and the City of Brownsville are denying accurate information.  This leaves people believing things are okay when they are not.

The county's decision to not publish the age of the children is reckless.  Nothing is being done to put word out about the children.  No child should be outside.

THE AEROSOL SPREAD

I walk Sam every morning.  We have several walkers and joggers in the morning.  They are not wearing facial coverings.  They are spewing the aerosol from their breath.  It can go 12 feet, and then I walk through it.  I wear a triple layer facial covering.  But now that I know the aerosol spray can get into my eyes, I have ordered 5 facial shields.  They come in a package.

Think about the people in the parking lot at Walmart talking up a storm with no facial covering.  You then pass them and walk right through their aerosol spray.  It goes in your eyes.  If they have Covid, you may then have Covid.

Where are the Public Service Announcements explaining any of this.

The COB Commission is too busy deciding how they will use the $29 million in Tenaska money they took to stop the return the of the Tenaska money to the people to spend the money on educating the people, or helping to pay people's utility bills.

IT IS TIME A LAW FIRM FILE TO REMOVE EDDIE TREVINO FROM OFFICE OVER HIS MISMANAGEMENT OF COVID

Chapter 87

"(2) "Incompetency" means:
(A) gross ignorance of official duties;
(B) gross carelessness in the discharge of those duties;"
A first year law student could win this lawsuit against Treviño. Guys nothing is going to change this year. We need a real leader and that can only happen if Treviño is removed.
TREY MENDEZ CAN ONLY BE REMOVED BY PETITION


SAENZ BIG LOSER IN ATKINSON HEARING

His Petition in Quo Warranto was based on the idea Sylvia abandoned her office.  The evidence has shown she has been in communication with BISD, and now in fact attended a meeting.  Until we see an unredacted order there is no evidence anyone tried to pull Sylvia's bond for attending a BISD meeting.   Just another fabricated story.

But something is up.

BUT NOW WITH THE NEW TRIAL DATE SET FOR AFTER THE MAIL AND MILITARY BALLOTS GO OUT, IF SYLVIA SEEKS REELECTION THE BALLOT WILL LIST HER AS THE INCUMBENT.  THERE IS SIMPLY NO TIME FOR A JURY TRIAL TO REMOVE HER FROM OFFICE  BEFORE THE BALLOTS ARE PRINTED AND MAILED



On the day jury selection will begin, early voting will begin in Texas.  If Sylvia decides to run she will be on the ballot and people will be casting votes for her.  Also many mail ballots will have gone out and the military ballots have to go out 45 days before the election.  If she chooses to run for reelection she will be on the ballot as the incumbent and no one can stop it.

IS SAENZ ACTUALLY DELUSIONAL ENOUGH TO BELIEVE JUSTICE HINOJOSA IS GOING TO INTERFERE IN A FEDERAL CRIMINAL TRIAL AND GIVE HIM DISCOVERY WHICH JUDGE RODRIGUEZ MAY HAVE ALREADY ORDERED SEALED?  YEP

This is why insight into legal proceedings matter.  By Sylvia getting Judge Rodriguez to seal all sorts of stuff she can obstruct her removal hearing in state court.  Justice Hinojosa is going to show deference, and properly so, to Judge Rodriguez.

So Saenz's only choice is to intervene in the federal criminal trial and ask the court of appeals to review all sealed matters as in fact a stunt to obstruct the state proceedings. Saenz is too much of a coward to do that, so he is dead in the water.  

Even if before the November elections are certified and the winners sworn in, if a civil trial can be conducted to remove Atkinson we face the prospect of the court reversing an election Atkinson may have won.  Or does he?  It will be a new term and her actions under this term will not matter.  Her removal is for the current term, not the new term where technically she could win, but I would not bet on it.

Let's just call this one big cluster boink.



SYLVIA ATKINSON HEARING OVER WITH ZERO EVIDENCE ANYONE FILED A MOTION TO REVOKE HER BOND OR MODIFY IT

Part of the transcript of today's hearing will be released.  The policy of the DOJ just filing Sealed Motions without court review is now over.  

It is s sad the BV had to bring in the DOJ Inspector General to get Fernando Rodriguez to honor our  constitution.  Everything he is still trying to keep sealed is subject to review.  I am working hard on using my sources outside of Texas to get the ACLU to take the media challenge against Fernando Rodriguez to the Court of Appeals. 

Rodriguez will live with his decision to abandon his constitutional duties in the Atkinson case until I filed the Inspector General Complaint until his tenure on the bench comes to an end.  Hopefully that will be sooner than later with the Judicial Complaint.

The  BV called it spot on that there was no motion to revoke her bond based on how the court set the briefing schedule.

Something else is up and the Court of Appeals will insure we know the truth.   Rodriguez abandoned his constitutional duties and now he needs to be held accountable.

HERE IS HIS DOCKET ENTRY AFTER THE HEARING

"Minute Entry for proceedings held before Judge Fernando Rodriguez, Jr: Video Conference Appearances: Jody L Young and Robert Searls Johnson, AUSA's f/Govt; E Dale Robertson and Noe Domingo Garza, Jr, f/Deft; (Court Reporter: Sheila Perales) (USPO: Cecilia Senteno) [Court time: 8:31-9:36].

SYLVIA PLAYED DIRTY POLITICS AFTER HER FIRST INDICTMENT WAS DISMISSED INSTEAD OF HOLDING THOSE RESPONSIBLE ACCOUNTABLE - I SMELL SOMETHING PROFOUNDLY WRONG WITH THE DOJ AND ATKINSON

She is clearly not happy with me for undoing her secret trial, with my Inspector General Complaint.  This is why she praised Trey Mendez and Eddie Treviño. Two of the most unpopular people in Cameron County are not going to help her credibility.  She is now sounding like a desperate Donald Trump. People are laughing at you Sylvia - you are sounding desperate.

For educating Fernando Rodriguez in constitutional law and open criminal trials should I send him a $10,000 bill?  LMFAO

I am not done Fernando, your part in this mess will be the center point of the judicial complaint and in fact a criminal complaint  to investigate you, the DOJ lawyers and Atkinson lawyers.  You abdicated your constitutional duties until I forced your hand.  You need to be removed as a federal judge. 


CAMERON COUNTY SEEING HIGHER DEATH RATE THAN REST OF THE STATE

"Texas’ southernmost county, Cameron, is home to just 1.5% of the state’s population, but it accounts for nearly 5% of its known COVID-19 fatalities.
Cameron County — where 89% of residents are Hispanic and nearly a third live below the poverty line — stands out as just one stark example of widespread disparities in COVID-19 outcomes. Across Texas and the nation, the novel coronavirus is deadlier for communities of color and low-income communities."
If you go back to the reports out of NY during the worse days they were reporting Covid was hitting blacks, browns, and the poor the hardest.

Our inept medical professionals and political leaders ignored all of the scientific evidence coming out of NY months ago and now we have this.


TREY MENDEZ AND EDDIE TREVINO HAD EVERY LEGAL AUTHORITY TO MANDATE FACIAL COVERINGS IN THE STORES - THEY CHOSE TO PROTECT THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY INSTEAD OF THE PEOPLE

The scientific evidence as to how Covid impacts Latinos was known months ago.  What did our hospitals and medical professionals  do to prepare?  Nothing.  The self professed Republican doctors got behind the nut job in chief Trump and remained silent.

There can be no immunity in the relief Bill.  When this is calm enough to investigate for gross negligence those responsible need to be held both criminally and  financially responsible.
