Norma Chavez is running for Congress. She has name ID. But does she have money? If not, can she raise it? The good thing for her is that her race is short. She played it smart by filing at the last moment thereby considerably reducing the amount of money she... Continue reading

You know who has the most to lose in this congressional race? If your answer is "Veronica Escobar", you're wrong. It is Cesar Blanco. If Escobar loses, Blanco will live with the regret.

Your County Commissioner David Stout is trying to point out the fact that his opponent, Sergio Lewis, owns a small business is bad thing. Something about him being a business owner would make him a part-time County Commissioner. To which I say, "Nice." But I digress. The point Stout is... Continue reading

...we know what Veronica Esocbar will do. Or at least I know. If you all remember, when Steve Ortega ran for mayor, Escobar wanted Max bad. She even teased Max about some out-of-court settlements of Leeser's that she wanted to share, but did not. More than likely, those settlements will... Continue reading

Veronica Escobar is supposed to be your next Congresswoman. She's been around for a while, she loves all the right causes, and she's brown. But can she blow it? I have said for a while she can because knowing her and her inability to delegate she can blow this election.... Continue reading

Bob Moore leaving the El Paso Times is probably the best thing to happen to the El Paso Times since its competitor folded a while ago. Sure, the paper will still be friendly to a certain political faction. But it will not be as friendly. You see, Moore, like David... Continue reading

UTEP should kill its football program. Forget spending the time and money searching for a new head coach. If UTEP wants to be bold, just get rid of the damn thing. The future of football for UTEP has not been any bleaker. A losing season aside. A shitty conference aside.... Continue reading

Folks smarter than me said that Brexit would destroy England. Folks smarter than me also said Trump would destroy the economy. I am not going to say those folks were wrong, but perhaps they were a tad bit off. Those same folks are saying more or less the same thing... Continue reading

When Mary Gonzalez first ran for State Representative, her claim to fame was the fact she was a lesbian. And because she was a lesbian, she managed to get money out of LBGT PACs. But it turned out she was not exactly lesbian, she was bisexual. Then it turned out... Continue reading

Because Veronica Escobar did not resign earlier, she gave Dori Fenenbock some ammunition. That damn ego of hers gets in her own way. Yes, to be an elected official you have to have an ego, but it is on a spectrum. Escobar's is on the bad end of the spectrum.... Continue reading

Back in March, your Congressman, Beto O'Rourke, announced he was running for Senate. That was the announcement, but his decision was probably made long before then. And you know who was probably privy to that decision? County Judge Veronica Escobar. And you know what other decision was made at that... Continue reading

Did you all see this story - HERE! An 18-year old and 20-year old were moving 100lbs of cocaine. You guys may call that stupidity. I call that ambition. When I was at that age, I was either studying or masturbating. But not these kids. Had they gotten away with... Continue reading

The immediate knock against Dori Fenenbock is that she is being backed by "The Republicans". But if that is a knock against her, it is the knock against Escobar. Look at Escobar's reception host committee list (see below). If the other knock against Dori is that she is corrupt because... Continue reading

Paul Moreno has passed. He was a lot things to a lot of people. To some, he was a "great legislator". So let us take a moment to reflect upon all that Moreno accomplished legislatively for El Paso while serving in the Texas Legislature for nearly half a century: .... Continue reading

I do not know why Mayor Dee Margo feels compelled to fight for something that deserves to die...the downtown arena. His argument is basically, "Well, shit we spent this much money now." Just because you have spent money already does not mean you have to keep spending it. "Well, the... Continue reading

Some folks want you to "encourage" Veronica Pleters...err...Veronica Escobar to run for Congress because she is, for a lack of a better word, a beaner. Let us not kid ourselves. Escobar needs no encouragement. But back to this whole brown thing. The problem once you play the race card is... Continue reading

Man, poor Commissioner Vincent Perez. He keeps getting publicly bitch-slapped by County Judge Veronica Escobar over this immigration Gitmo stuff. The worst part about it is that Perez's best friend, Jaime Abeytia, is doing nothing to stick up for him. On one hand, I get it. Abeytia is engaged. So... Continue reading
