Not exactly news that your Democratic Party Chair, Iliana Holguin, is running against County Commissioner Vincent Perez. And it is not exactly news that your former County Judge, Veronica Escobar, did not necessarily leave on good terms with Perez. That all being said, I did not think Veronica would want...

When visiting a construction site, always make sure your toes are covered. Besides the fact nobody really wants to see your Barney Rubble-feet, you can get injured. Also, your already ashy feet will get even ashier from all the drywall dust. Open-toed shoes are a no-no Continue reading
Posted 2 days ago at Max Powers least until they don't. Remember, right now a lot of you are pissed because the President uses inflammatory language and stuff. So what happens if somebody else uses "inflammatory language"? What if somebody happens to be a Republican and uses sexist and homophobic language to describe fellow members? Well,...

Mr. Joe Moody passed up a chance to become DA in order to do bigger and better things in Austin. But man how much his world has changed since then. His boss, the current Republican Speaker of the House, is in some serious hot water. There is the allegation about... Continue reading

Up until Saturday around noon, things seemed hopeless for Beto. But a tragedy occurred. And once again, it is the Beto show. Is that right? Is that wrong? I do not know. It what it is. But do not kid yourself. Any person that became president had to do things... Continue reading

Employees @FtBlissExchange told me today they’ve seen a steady stream of people purchasing guns and/or ammo over the past 2 days in wake of Saturday morning’s massacre at an El Paso Walmart. One longtime gun department employee said he’s never seen anything like it @epheraldpost — Darren Hunt (@dhuntreporter)... Continue reading

When your former Congressman ran for Senate, he spent nearly two-years of his life crisscrossing the largest state in the Lower 48. Most of that time was spent on the road, eating shitty, unhealthy food and running (literally). Living like that is going to age you. Even after the race,... Continue reading
Posted Aug 3, 2019 at Max Powers least one-side of it is. Per your paper, Juarez is up to no good AGAIN. I recently read THIS! You really start to wonder if this is all one big fucking game and that the drugs and migrants are all just a sideshow of what is really going on.... Continue reading

Tired of Congressional delegations passing through to visit Obama-era cages? Tired of sleazy superintendents being, well, sleazy? Tired of Jose Rodriguez of just being Jose Rodriguez? Well, good news! Finally, something exciting happening in El Paso politics. One of the most interesting folks on Twitter - Mike Cernovich - is... Continue reading

Are y'all really that shocked and surprised that a local area superintendent acted out like he did recently? The guy drives around in a Porsche wearing pinstripe suits. Who does that anymore? That shit was cool maybe in 1987. There is a pattern of behavior with this guy. Whether banging... Continue reading

I tried to get you a decent DA. But that man does not want to give up his current job. I know he thinks he can do bigger and better things where he is at now. That is all nonsense. I remember one-time I was at a trade show I... Continue reading

Last November, Beto on the heels of a "good" loss and Vero winning her congressional seat, the sky was the limit. But something happened. More ballsy women who do not give a phuck also won their races. One woman who lives about 2,200 miles from the border gets more airtime... Continue reading

So some no-names want to run for DA. Meanwhile, Joe Moody does nothing. Maybe Joe is betting on Democrats winning the Texas House, but then what? Will he be Speaker? Unlikely. Not because he is a bad guy, but some of his fellow colleagues who have been around longer and... Continue reading

UPDATE - It's like they read my mind over at the El Paso Times - Escobar's Press Office ******************** Your Congresswoman, Veronica Escobar, is in the news. You would not know it from reading the El Paso Times though. I guess Escobar is so overwhelmed with guilty about her better... Continue reading

Oh, man. Did you see what happened last night? Some little guy named Julian Castro from San Antonio beat-up on y'alls boy, Roberto O'Rourke. First, San Antonio took Sea World from y'all. Now, it is San Antonio's third-rate presidential candidate that beats up on your second-rate presidential candidate. The worse... Continue reading

I gotta dumb question. Did your CongressX, Veronica Escobar, endorse Beto as a presidential candidate? If not, what's the hold up? If she has...ok, cool. Continue reading

Below is a picture of Texas Tech officials and members of your delegation announcing funding for your new dental school. Notice anything? Your delegation's only budget-writing legislator - Mary Gonzalez - is NOT there. You would think of all people she would be there to celebrate her achievement. And rightfully... Continue reading

I used to be a free-trade whore. But less so now especially when the rest of the world does not exactly play fair. As Ralph Nader would say...we have managed trade, not free trade. But I am not coming from the angle of "worker's rights". No, I am come from... Continue reading

Session is over. Now what? Is your State Senator, Jose Rodriguez, going to retire? I would think so, but then I gotta remember he is a guy that if not for senating and stuff, he would be stuck at home with his wife, and no man wants that. But then... Continue reading

My former employer, your former state representative, Norma Chavez, despite losing her congressional race, has not given up. And praise Allah. El Paso is better for having an involved Norma. So what is she up to now? She is a member of EPISD's Citizens' Bond Advisory Committee - No shit!... Continue reading

As the Texas legislative session draws to a close, you gotta wonder if your State Senator, Jose Rodriguez, decides to call it quits. If I am not mistaken, he will be vested with the State. So between that, his county and federal pensions, he is set to make six-figures annually... Continue reading

Let me be clear, I can be wrong. But man, again, it is the El Paso Times. In the build-up to his announcement, and period thereafter, the El Paso Times was on Roberto O'Rourke like flies on shit. But in the past few weeks national coverage of Roberto has been... Continue reading

Yo confieso ante...I subscribe to the El Paso Times. "You're welcome, Zahira." But maybe it is me, but I have noticed something. Back when CongressX Veronica Escobar was County Judge and at times it appeared that the El Paso Times was the de facto public information officer for the Commissioners... Continue reading

Apparently, somebody really wants to run against Cassandra Hernandez-Not Brown? Which I guess must mean she on the outs with the folks with cash. Which would also mean is on the outs with Veronica and Co.? I don't know. I just hear things. But to the would-be candidate, please really... Continue reading

As David K pointed over and over again, Lost Dog will cost you money and it really benefits a few "gabachos". So why did so many people downstream, literally, vote for this? Because they said, "Phuck it." As one person told me after all that was spent on the ballpark... Continue reading
