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]. VIDEO CONFERENCE MOTION HEARING as to Sylvia P Atkinson held on 7/30/2020 re: 32 Sealed Motion, 50 MOTION for Agents to Retain Notes, and 52 Sealed Motion. The Court addressed the parties with findings regarding closing the hearing to the public. The Court granted 50 MOTION for Agents to Retain Notes; written Order to follow. Discussion held and ruling issued by the Court re: 52 Sealed Motion; sealed written Order to follow. Discussion held re: 32 Sealed Motion; motion granted.

The Court ordered the discussion regarding 52 Sealed Motion and portions of the discussion regarding 32 Sealed Motion be sealed; remainder of hearing shall be made available to the public. (balvina, 1) (Entered: 07/30/2020)"

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.


RICK PERRY IN WEST TEXAS WITH  TRUMP GUNNING TO JOIN HERMAN CAIN IN GRAVE

There is something profoundly wrong with these Republicans.  Just watch the video of Trump's West Texas visit.  He does not care if he kills you and his dumbass followers are too afraid to  cross him.

Click for Video

HERMAN CAIN WHO ATTENDED TRUMP'S TULSA EVENT WITHOUT A FACIAL COVERING - DEAD FROM COVID 19



OUR DEMOCRACY IS NOT SAFE WITH TRUMP OR THE REPUBLICANS

Now you can feel  secure the election is spelled out in the Constitution and statute.  He cannot delay the election.  But the fact he would call for it, should tell you how far he is willing to go to hold onto power.


DR. FAUCI IS NOW SAYING TO SLOW THE SPREAD YOU SHOULD WEAR GOGGLES OR A FACE SHIELD

He did not suggest a mandate or for people to run out and buy  them.  It is more a question of if you have access to them you will be safer.

"The second way in theory is through viruses in the air. If someone were to cough, sneeze, or pant in your general direction, the eye covering could potentially shield you from the splatter. Alternatively, if the viruses were able to hang in the air for a bit, entering such an airspace could possibly allow some of those viruses to land on your eyes. An eye covering could make that harder to occur."

VALLEY BAPTIST WHERE YOU GO TO DIE

From the Herald: "According to Bingham and Garza, of Valley Baptist Medical Center and Valley Regional Medical Center, respectively, the word from the visiting doctors, nurses and other hospital relief workers sent in from other states to help is that Brownsville’s COVID-19 hospitals patients tend to be sicker than the COVID-19 patients they’ve encountered elsewhere, said Gowen, who is also a medical doctor."

You cannot be a more incompetent CEO than Leslie Bingham.  She is not qualified to clean the toilets.  

I will never forget how she ran cover for an attending assigned by Valley Baptist who nearly killed my brother in law.  I can clearly hear the specialist after the emergency surgery telling the head of risk management she was a liar and altered the medical records to protect Valley Baptist.

Leslie ran cover for the attending during the peer review.  The same quack all but had me discharged for retaliation over handling the complaint against him.  The neurologist assigned to me just fabricated his findings.  The end result was a real brain neurosurgeon in San Antonio verified the need  for the brain surgery. 

Leslie Bingham is simply not qualified.  I would love to meet her in court to prove it.  

Long since before Covid I warned my readers about Valley Baptist is where you go to die.  Now a lot of families are learning the hard way.  

I will never forget her blaming TSC and UT Brownsville for failure to properly train nurses.  She blamed their graduates for all of the malpractice at Valley Baptist.  I posted this story when it happened.

I would imagine these out of state doctors are horrified over the lack of quality care in Brownsville. 


CAMERON COUNTY EXPLODES WITH MORE CHILDREN POSITIVE WITH COVID, AS TREY MENDEZ DOES PUBLICITY STUNT WITH YOUNG GIRL SCOUTS WITHOUT MASKS

Child Protective Services really needs to investigate the parents of these girls used in this publicity stunt. 

CAMERON COUNTY NUMBERS

32 Children under age 9
42 Children under age 19
388 New Cases in Brownsville
647 New Cases in Cameron County

Cameron County reported processing 8 additional deaths.  Again this is not actual deaths, just the number the county processed. 


THE SMOKE STACKS OF BROWNSVILLE'S FORMER RESIDENTS

TEXAS REACHES DEADLY MILESTONE, AND HIDALGO COUNTY TO EXPLODES WITH DEATHS

"Texas has now surpassed New York in total coronavirus cases, according to Johns Hopkins University data.
Johns Hopkins now reports a total of 417,098 total cases across Texas since the start of the pandemic. 
New York state has 413,593 total cases across as of Wednesday"
Now consider with fewer cases, had over 32,000 deaths.
"On Wednesday Hidalgo County reported 45 more deaths due to coronavirus complications and 287 additional people tested positive for the virus — bringing its overall total to 16,375 cases."

KRGV

SO ARE WE NOW HAPPY WITH BISD'S KILL GRANDMA DAY?

Cameron County has so manipulated the data we cannot possibly track how BISD's graduation events impacted families and the elderly.  By hiding the exact age of the children we cannot see how many were BISD graduates. Without proper contact tracking we cannot track back to the BISD graduation.

HERE IS THE MEDICAL EVIDENCE


"Young people are infecting older family members with coronavirus in multigenerational homes"


"As the death toll escalates in coronavirus hot spots, evidence is growing that young people who work outside the home, or who surged into bars and restaurants when states relaxed shutdowns, are infecting their more vulnerable elders, especially family members.

Front-line caregivers, elected officials and experts in Houston, South Florida and elsewhere say they are seeing patterns of hospitalization and death that confirm fears this would happen, which were first raised in May and June. That was when Florida, Texas, Arizona, California and other states reopened in efforts to revive their flagging economies.

TEXAS TRIBUNE 

I have been warning about home transmission since the debate concerning BISD graduations.  It is now very real.  Where is Trey Mendez on this?  He is compromising young girls for publicity and planning Charro Days.  He does not care if one of these young girls brings Covid into their home and kill grandma.  He got his Trump Bible picture and that is all that matters.

Parents keep your  children as far away from Trey Mendez as possible.  He is not there to protect them.  He is cynical in hoping you fall for his stunt.

Where is our city medical official? Praying to a heathen god to bring about the rapture to save the innocent.

Eddie Treviño will never be forthright with the people.  He is subject to a removal action.  The mayor can only be removed through a petition.

It is so sad we do not have a public service law firm in Brownsville because in other cities both Treviño, and Mendez would be handled.

PLEASE KEEP YOUR KIDS HOME, AWAY FROM TREY MENDEZ AND MAKE EVERYONE IN YOUR HOME WEAR A FACIAL COVERING

THE NUMBERS ARE ONLY WORSE, HOW MUCH OF A COVER-UP CAN WE EXPECT FROM CAMERON COUNTY

"State health officials reported 313 additional deaths attributed to the coronavirus on Wednesday, bringing the known pandemic death toll in Texas to 6,190.
It was the most deaths reported on a single day, although they occurred over the past week or more, as the state has adjusted how it counts deaths caused by the virus.
Officials also announced 9,042 new known cases, bringing the current statewide tally to 403,307 cases.
The crossing of 400,000 total COVID-19 cases in Texas is another grim record of the disease’s spread."


FEDERAL JUDGE FERNANDO RODRIGUEZ CAVES TO THE BV AND TRIED TO CLEAN UP THE MESS HE HAS MADE OF THE ATKINSON CASE, BUT FAILED

He proves you can be a Yale graduate and be very challenged to understand basic law. Or is it that being a federal judge makes him believe he is above the law.

You see he knows the local news media cannot challenge his conduct.  The cost is more than the local news media can handle.  So he uses our poverty as a weapon to keep a criminal trial beyond  closed doors.  He will not be moved unless the ACLU or millionaire lawyers are willing to hire a media firm to challenge him.

His silly little email to everyone having access to the hearing tomorrow does not tell the story.  His order tells the story.

You see before anything can be sealed he has to have a motion, a hearing and a ruling.  He has done none of these things.  But to try and salvage the mess he has made of the Atkinson case his order says after the hearing, under  the rules for what can and cannot be sealed he will review the transcript and consider releasing the entire transcript or part of it after he redacts anything he finds prejudicial to Atkinson or the government,

Until the BV's complaint he was not going to do this.  His order only sinks him deeper with the Commission on Judicial Conduct.The BV will stay on it. 

HERE IS THE US SUPREME COURT AUTHORITY ON THE MATTER AND JUDGE RODRIGUEZ HAS MET NONE OF IT

If the trial court closes the proceeding, the closure must be no broader than necessary to protect the interest of the party asserting the need for closure. The court must consider reasonable alternatives to closing the proceeding, and it must make findings adequate to support the closure. See generally Press-Enterprise Co. v. Superior Ct., 478 U.S. 1 (1986).

Where are the orders on the sealed Motions making sure they are narrowly tailored?  Where are his findings?  Judge Rodriguez has thrown the constitution out with the bath water.  He does not even make a pretext to follow the constitution.

If Sylvia Atkinson is guilty and she walks, it will be because of Fernando Rodriguez.  If we had a public interest law firm in Brownsville this abusive conduct by Judge Rodriguez  would not survive.

SO WHAT DID JUDGE RODRIGUEZ ACTUALLY SAY IN THE ORDER IN RESPONSE TO MY COMPLAINT?


AS NOTED ABOVE THE LAW REQUIRES HE REVIEWS THE SEALED MOTION IN ADVANCE TO INSURE ALL OF IT HAS TO BE SEALED.  HE HAS NOT FOLLOWED THE LAW AND WILL NOT FOLLOW THE LAW UNTIL THE ACLU COMES IN AND REPRESENTS THE PRESS AND THE PEOPLE, OR A MILLIONAIRE IS WILLING TO HIRE A MEDIA FIRM TO REPRESENT THE PEOPLE

The is absolutely no Motion by any party asking for a closed hearing.  This at least according to the docket sheet.  The sealed event was filed by the DOJ and not Sylvia Atkinson so the burden is on them to show it meets the legal requirements, not Sylvia Atkinson.

Judge Rodriguez does not even make the pretense of reviewing the Sealed Motion and making findings that the Motion is narrowly tailored to meet its purposes and that there is no other means to pursue the matter without a sealed Motion. 

So while ignoring the law on how a sealed Motion is filed, Judge Rodriguez is going to continue with these secret hearings in a public criminal trial against an elected official based on corruption and at a later date decide what we can and cannot know.

This is not how things are done in the U.S.  Judge Rodriguez would do well to file for a judgeship in Iran or China where his skills, or lack thereof would be better appreciated and  received. 

It is sad with all of our millionaire lawyers none will fund a challenge by the people and the press against Judge Rodriguez's abuses.

HOW ABOUT J GONZALEZ HIRE A MEDIA FIRM TO DEFEND THE BROWNSVILLE PRESS AGAINST JUDGE RODRIGUEZ

Didn't Gonzalez go out of his way to say he stands with our press.  Well buddy here is your chance.  It is time to defend us against the recalcitrant Fernando Rodriguez


Sylvia Atkinson's case is going to be a thorn in Rodriguez's side for years, especially if a lawsuit is filed to open the case. 





TREY MENDEZ'S TRUMP BIBLE IN FRONT OF THE CHURCH PROPAGANDA PHOTO

First of all the U.S. will have another day of more than a 1000 dead.  Yesterday was a near record high of 1300.

CHILDREN AND COVID

"On July 16, the state had a total of 23,170 children ages 17 and under who had tested positive since the beginning of the pandemic, according to the Florida Department of Health. By July 24, that number jumped to 31,150.
That's a 34% increase in new cases among children in eight days."
THE FACES OF CHILDREN WITH COVID


19 CHILDREN UNDER 9
38 CHILDREN UNDER 19

Yesterday  saw a surge of children with Covid in Cameron County.  These are the symptomatic children.  We have no idea how many children actually have Covid.

The BV has been 100% consistent about the children, keep them home and make them wear facial coverings in the home.

SO HOW DOES THIS NARCISSIST RESPONDS TO THIS PICTURE WITH THE GIRL SCOUTS?

A Montoya reader said it best.  Trey is hiding behind the skirts of these very fine young ladies.  And for the record, Montoya broke this story and deserves credit for it.

From Trey Mendez: "Thanks to Julissa, Ruby and Vania from Girl Scout Troop 2139 for coming by to visit with me today. These young girls and their troop leaders, Julie Cantu and Érica Mancias Ramos, asked great questions and brightened my day with their energy (and cookies) !
UPDATE: Masks were worn during our meeting and were removed for less than a minute for the purpose of this photo where we were spaced sufficiently apart. If you want to judge me, go ahead. But these little girls and their mothers (who were present) should be allowed to enjoy their moment without having to deal with criticism."

How pathetic. No one would criticize the children and Trey knows it, but he raises it so it appears by calling him out we are going after the children. Trey you are a pathetic little weasel.

Such as a Montoya poster said the children were used as a prop by reckless parents and a mayor who seems to not care one bit about the spread of Covid among children.

I support this troop and these young ladies. The girl scouts are wonderful. The girls have nothing to do with this photo. It was Mendez and a group of reckless parents using these innocent girls as props.

PLEASE SUPPORT THESE FINE YOUNG LADIES BY GOING TO THEIR FB PAGE AND ORDERING ON LINE SO THESE BEAUTIFUL YOUNG LADIES DO NOT HAVE TO GO OUT

Please flick and buy on line and show your support. These young ladies should not be out and about especially for a propaganda photo for a desperate mayor Trey Mendez


MONOYA BROKE THIS STORY NO ME - KUDOS TO HIM

I said it before and will say it again, if Montoya would stick to this type reporting and stop the pay to play policy I would be the first to tell people to place ads with him.  When he wants to he gets it very right. 

He knows on a few occasions I have helped in in legal matters. And to be truthful he has helped me.  In fact based on his reporting over the last few days, if I see a problem I will email him and give him 24 hours to correct any mistakes before I say anything.  Believe it or not I want him to succeed.  He has the skills no mainstream reporter has in Brownsville, but his pay to play policy kills his credibility.

Guys there is nothing wrong with paying him for political ads.  Simply tell him not to shill for you.  Make sure your ad has a FB link and you as the candidate can say as you please. Hey if Montoya can make 4-5 K a month in legitimate ads more power to him.  I will be the first to help him  when he asks for it.

I WILL SAY THIS, THE CANDIDATE NEED TO TAKE OUT ADS WITH HIM.  JUST TELL HIM IF HE GOES BACK TO PAY TO PLAY YOU WILL PULL THE AD.  

IF HE CAN MAKE THE MONEY ON HONEST ADS AND NOT PAY TO PLAY HE WILL BURY THE HERALD AND ALL OF THE LOCAL NEWS MEDIA AS HIS HANDS ARE FREED.

GUYS HELP HIM BECOME THE BEST HE CAN BE WITH LEGITIMATE ADS AND NOT PAY TO PLAY.
