Martin Paredes. He needs to let it go. And I say this as someone who also has a CURP. His whole thing is that Mexicans always get shafted in El Paso, and that corruption is somehow worse in El Paso than in Mexico. As far as the latter is concerned...NOT... Continue reading

...y'all notice something about local reporting in El Paso? Back when your CongresspersonX served in local government, there seemed to be non-stop local coverage of county government. You could probably run a search in the El Paso Times - County Judge Veronica Escobar v County Judge Old Guy - and... Continue reading

I regret to inform you Jaime Abeytia is trying to be a tough guy again. He says he would slap a political blogger because they made fun an elected official's appearance because he is, or was?, banging her. Because Jaime is like Will Smith. But tough guy could not come... Continue reading

So EPISD has selected its finalist. Not that I care. Prior to, I saw that local media was making a big deal out of one trustee and her relationship to one of the finalists. What I can gather it was a bunch of ugly people beating up on the hot... Continue reading

No matter what happens next spring Claudia Ordaz wins one way or the other. Her race against Art Fierro is likely to get expensive. Which is good for Claudia AND Vince. Why? Cos' more than likely Vince will be running Claudia's campaign. Why? Well, he's not exactly employed or running... Continue reading

Marisa Marquez's name is being thrown out there again for something. Whether it be a House seat or Senate seat. And if it is a House seat, apparently, she too has options. If she was able to take out Paul Moreno, and survive two primaries afterwards, she probably could make... Continue reading

When Claudia ran for her current seat she defeated a newcomer. But now she is challenging not exactly a newcomer in El Paso politics. Not that Claudia is lazy or one to back down from a fight. I have been one to make fun of Art. But in all seriousness,... Continue reading

Claudia Ordaz Perez is moving districts to avoid taking on a fellow female, Lina Ortega. But there is a rumor out there being spread that Lina is NOT retiring after all. And it ain't just one or two people saying it from the same political circle. And, it gets better.... Continue reading

Hold up... Is it true that Claudia wants to run against Art? That would be interesting. Art would still be the the "Democratic" candidate while Claudia would be the "Republican" candidate. I can only assume the El Paso money guys prefer to keep Lina, and would rather TRY to get... Continue reading

Lina Ortega, whatever you do, do not retire. Do not let ageists get their way. The only thing standing in the way of Republican-lite Claudia Ordaz-Perez is you. El Paso is a Democrat town. There is no need to send two-face Democrats to Austin to do Republicans any more favors.... Continue reading

I gotta give Art Fierro credit. For some reason - only God must know - when Republicans were drawing their proposed redistricting map, they left his district intact. Or maybe I know of a reason. Art probably does not rub anyone the wrong way...unlike other members of your Delegation. Continue reading

Man, Beto is booty hurt. Beto is truly bothered by the fact a much more accomplished, and better looking man - Matthew McConaughey - is considered a potential gubernatorial candidate. Sure, Beto is gonna say "It's about the issues", but Beto who has tried to play Hollywood is scared of... Continue reading

Yea, I know. It's been a minute. More about that later or maybe not. Anyways. So apparently your ex-congressperson, Beto O'Rourke, wants to run for governor. Today is September 20th, 2021. Beto announced he was running for Senate back on March 31st, 2017. This motherfucker has spent the last 4... Continue reading

It is been a year since I was infected with the Wuhan Flu. As of a blood donation earlier this this month - I regularly donate blood - I still test positive for Wuhan antibodies. So when I hear about people who are vaccinated - like Texas House Democrats -... Continue reading

Your Congressperson, Veronica Escobar, is something else. Check this tweet out. So…we shouldn’t change our behavior but instead pollute elsewhere? 🤔 We can and must do better than that.#ClimateAction #saveourplanet #TaxTheRich https://t.co/laKUKhrgQY — Rep. Veronica Escobar (@RepEscobar) July 21, 2021 Where to begin.. Escobar does not want us to "pollute"... Continue reading

So apparently five Democratic legislators that went to DC to "protect democracy" could not protect themselves from Covid despite being vaccinated. One of those legislators came out publicly to say he had the Wuhan. But the other four remain anonymous. Which is kinda bullshit. First of they are public officials,... Continue reading

...I do wonder how Ex-Speaker Pro Tempore Joe Moody's boss, Rick Francis, is dealing with the fact his employee just got up and took a month off by flying with a bunch of other Democrats to DC and lose his leadership position in the Texas House. All this in order... Continue reading

Some of your elected officials are in DC to protect democracy or some bullshit like that. For one of them, Claudia Ordaz drive thru-voting is should be protected. Even though said thing was not really a thing until last cycle in Houston. What kind of lazy ass mother fuc*er do... Continue reading

You want to talk about white priviliege. Read Beto's op-ed on Bob Moore's version of Newspaper Tree. Beto thinks the Hispanic woman behind the meat counter where he buys his meat from is too stupid to form her own opinion about US immigration policy without having been hoodwinked by former...

Anthony Jackson is allegedly a reporter for the El Paso Times. He is the one the behind the softball pieces for Claudia Ordaz, and now his most recent softball is about Fernando Garcia and the Border Network for Human Rights (BNHR). If I am not mistaken, Garcia has been in... Continue reading

So back to my previous post. If you just read the El Paso Times, you would have thought State Representative Claudia Ordaz did all sorts of heavy lifting and kicked ass. But that is not true. If anyone did any heavy lifting this past legislative session, it was State Representatives... Continue reading

I am not sure what to make of it, but I do find the way the El Paso Times covers State Representative Claudia Ordaz kinda interesting. Last week, she got front page treatment. And she's just a freshman. And you know that had to annoy the more experienced, accomplished legislators.... Continue reading

Hi. If there is one area of electoral politics I do not care for it is for school board races. For starters...the children. To hell with them. Teachers? Same. And Trustees? Hell isn't severe enough. "I serve on the school board." Yeah, tough gig, bro. But I am rambling now.... Continue reading

I have not posted because there is not much to post about. Really. Between Wuhan and Winter Storm Uri?, expectations are kinda low as to what can or cannot happen in Austin. But that being said, they still gotta do redistricting. And your El Paso House Delegation might lose a... Continue reading
