Lena is what we got for Beto

leave a comment »

Have you heard of Lena Hidalgo?

She is a progressive elected in the “Beto wave” of 2018.  As you may remember, the left invested $80 million to defeat Senator Ted Cruz the last time. Beto O’Rourke didn’t win, but the Democrats used the money to boost Democrat turnout and that’s how we got Lena Hidalgo by 25,000 votes, or 49.8% to 49.2%.   

By the way, this is not a judicial position, but rather more of a county administrative post.

County Judge Hidalgo has been on the front pages lately.

First, she ordered residents to cover their faces in public. The Houston Police Officer’s Union refused to enforce it and criticized the order as unworkable and potentially unconstitutional.

Judge Hidalgo came back with a tweet that created more controversy than her first order:   

What’s next for Lena Hidalgo? I don’t know but let’s hope that the GOP gets that seat back in 2022.

Who needs AMLO? We’ve got ‘Los Chapitos’

leave a comment »

Frankly, I had to check this story to make sure that it was not out of the incomparable Babylon Bee, the satire newspaper. 

So here is the story

The sons of Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, known as “Los Chapitos,” imposed a “curfew” on the inhabitants of the city of Culiacán, state capital of Sinaloa, due to the coronavirus contingency and threatened to “sanction” those who do not comply with the measure.

Through several videos circulating on social networks, the men of Iván Archivaldo Guzmán and Jesús Alfredo, roam the streets of Culiacán aboard vehicles and heavily armed, to supervise that people remain in their homes.

Yes, “Los Chapitos” will enforce the curfew. We also understand that the “ladies of the narcos” are distributing medical packages, such as hand sanitizer and reminders to wash your hands. The cartel version of a Good Neighbor Policy, or something like that.

On one hand, we are grateful that someone is taking the coronavirus seriously south of the border.  I say someone because President Lopez-Obrador does not seem to be.

On a larger point, where are the police and Mexican Army?  How is President Lopez-Obrador allowing a cartel to occupy a city the size of Culiacan with a metropolitan population of 900,000?

A word about May 7

leave a comment »

We remember May 7:

The Rolling Stones:   It happened on this day or the moment that Keith Richards got the inspiration for “Satisfaction”. A few days later, Keith and Mick Jagger worked on the song and the group recorded it.  Satisfaction” was the group’s first # 1 song in the US.      Rolling Stone, a magazine that has nothing to do with the group, ranked the song as # 2 in the Top 500 songs of all time.    

From the movies:    Gary Cooper was born on this day in 1901.  He made some great movies.   My favorite are “Pride of the Yankees” from  1942 and “High Noon” from 1952.  A great actor, an American original, who died in 1961.

Baltimore Colts:   We remember Johnny Unitas who was born in Pittsburgh, PA, on this day in 1933.    He died in 2002.  He led the Colts for many years and titles.

World War I:  It was a turning point in World War I and the US.  On this day in 1915, the Lusitania was torpedoed without warning by a German submarine.   A couple of years later, the US Congress voted to declare war on Germany and the war was truly global.

Motown:      We remember Jimmy Ruffin who was born in around Collinsville, Mississippi, on this day in 1936.    His brother David sang with the legendary Temptations.   He died in 2014.   In 1966, Ruffin recorded one of the greatest pop tunes of the Motown era:  “What becomes of the brokenhearted“.

First Ladies:      We remember María Eva Duarte in Los Toldos, Argentina, on this day in 1919.    She tried acting and modeling but her life changed when she married Juan Peron, a military man who eventually became president of Argentina.   As First Lady, she became President Peron’s secret weapon, a woman of incredible political skills hugely popular with the working class.  Evita died very young in 1952.   She was only 33.
