Your neighbors in League City and the rest of Galveston County overwhelmingly voted for him: 97,136 to 55,672 votes for Bell in the County, 190,541 votes to Bell's 118,574 in Congressional District 14. Adrienne Bell has lost twice to Randy because she does not represent our values, Randy does.

George Laiacona

This is nothing more than the Hoover days when Americans were forced to wait until March for the changing of the guard. Many different types of disasters in political policy will take place before January 20th. Webber has to fall in place with the TV celebrity in order to remain in the graces of the Republican Party

Carlos Ponce

Trump hater and a Randy Weber hater.

Gary Miller

Carlos> Probably hates others too. I'd hate to be so comsumed by hate.

Carlos Ponce

Yes, haters have no bounds.

Gary Miller

How late it's done is less important that getting it right. A DOJ team unlocked the Dominion machines used in one Michigan County. The machines were proved to have flipped 13,000 Trump votes to Biden. How many votes were flipped by the other 50 Michigan counties. The Michigan DOJ team has passed the clue they found to other agency's investigating Dominion voting Machines that they suspect were provided by China.

Gary Miller

Randy has voted for the virus stimulus bill as many times as Pelosi voted against it. 3,000 dead a day from covid. What did the other 9,000 a day die from. 4,5 million Americans die each year from all causes. Calculate it your self. 352,000,000 with a life expectancy of 79+ =4,5 million a year or 12,000+daily.

Carlos Ponce

Remember, Nancy Pelosi held back the relief bill as a political move until after the election. She admitted it.

Everybody can't make it by going around hiding in a hole all year and letting the Fake MEDIA, Deep State, FBI, and Twitter highjack the Election for them like JOE 90% did! Some people might not like Weber but others do, so what? I don't like a KKK AFFILIATE, & RACIST who hates minorities in the White House, but others did, and that is what happened! I had to accept what they pulled off!

Next thing we will see is election fixing here in this county I suppose. To be cautious I am going to try to find somebody who can teach me Mandarin Chinese so I can be on the point when China start organizing their surrogates here like they are doing in California! Nancy & Swalwell are not even bashful about favoring China over America anymore!

I was all about sending HUNTER up the river but if they don't investigate Swalwell and Pelosi, they need to let HUNTER go too. China brags about how many politicians is on the take or how many of them are in their hip-pockets now! One thing about China, and it is they play the LONG GAME, and they PLAY IT EXCELLENTLY!

They have been handling Swalwell every since he was in City Level Politics! All this kind of activity going on and the DEMOCRATS, with FEINSTEIN, PELOSI, & SWALWELL being handled, by Chinese Spys & Hookers, for as long as twenty years, while they bully, harrass, vilify, and conspire to get rid of TRUMP!! No bad deeds go unpunished! Russia has started early coming after the weak leaders who will be in DC! China, North Korea, and Iran are sure to follow, because they know JOE 92% is going to do NOTHING to stop them, unless THEY try Bribery like they did with the IRAN NECLEAR DEAL under JOE 95% & OBAMA!

I will set back, and light up a cigar, cross my legs and sip a frosty tall bottle of DIET COKE in honor of the Greatest American President ever born of woman,....Mr. Donald James Trump! Lolo.

Gary Miller

Charles> I expect many of the people who voted for China Joe will start thinking they made a mistake as soon as China Joe asks China when to start giving orders for them.

Gary Scoggin

I'm sure that "China Joe's" first request to China will be to revoke all those trademarks they gave to Ivanka Trump after her daddy was elected President.

See, IF all those Hunter Biden accuasations are true, here's the difference between the Bidens and the Trumps: When it comes to shady business practices, the Trumps are really good and practiced at it. It reminds me of the Clintons and Whitewater. The real mistake by Hillary Clinton on that deal is that she actually lost money on it. If you're going to be a shady business person, at least be good at being shady. This is a lesson the Trump family has taken to heart.

Carlos Ponce

"And no, $600 one-time stimulus checks aren't sufficient". Teresa, Randy is a member of the MINORITY PARTY in the House. Republicans don't have enough votes to change things - yet. Pelosi and her gang of Democrats are in charge. If you don't like the legislation blame the Democrats, not Randy!

Thank the Republican led Senate for stopping Pelosi from giving BILLIONS to ILLEGALS and bailing out Blue States and Blue Cities for their non-Chinese Virus related debts incurred over decades. The father accepted the prodigal son who was repentant for squandering his inheritance with a decadent lifestyle. But do the Blue states and Blue cities intend to mend their ways???? Nooooooo! There's a reason why people are leaving Blue states and Blue Cities.

Remember the story of the ant and the grasshopper - the original story. The ant worked and stored for the winter while the grasshopper partied. In the original story the grasshopper dies. The moral was clear. It is important to be prepared and work hard in case hard times occur. But the Liberals changed it so the grasshopper now eats and drinks what the ant had saved. No lesson here! Party, Party, Party and let someone else pick up the tab!

Charles Douglas

Mr. Ponce> Great metaphor! My sentiments exactly! Hard Work. [thumbup]

Paula Flinn

https://www.google.com/amp/s/mobile.reuters.com/article/amp/idUSKBN26K39O

The Truth.

Carlos Ponce

From your website: "The Democrat-backed HEROES Act in May proposed payments to illegal immigrants, but the amount was far from $1 trillion and it did not pass the Senate."

In other words, Paula shows us Democrats wanted to give BILLIONS to illegals but under the $1 trillion mark. Thanks Paula for backing my post that states Pelosi and the Democrats wanted to give BILLIONS to illegals.

"...the HEROES Act would spend $23 billion to 'loosen rules for current and previous rebates,' which includes direct payments to those not eligible under the CARES Act—U.S. citizens and non-citizens alike." [beam]

Gary Scoggin

Rep. Weber has been fortunate in that he has been up against a very weak Democratic candidate in Adrienne Bell. Ms. Bell is way too far left for this district. If the Democrats ever expect to have a chance here, they must nominate someone closer to center. But even then, I don’t think any Democrat could win the 14th District as it is currently configured.

Bailey Jones

Yeah, it doesn't matter who the candidate is. The way the district is drawn it's always going to be a Republican. A better tact would be running a more capable candidate against Weber in the primary. There are plenty of competent conservatives out there. I'd love to have one represent us.

Carlos Ponce

Randy Weber is a competent Conservative, selected by the his constituency.

Carlos Ponce

"a very weak Democratic candidate in Adrienne Bell" Democrats picked her, not the Republicans.

CD 14 is configured along the Gulf Coast with people of similar interests including the petrochemical industry.

Charles Douglas

Was she weak because she was BLACK or because she was a WOMAN? Talk quick because I would imagine many Hispanics and African-Americans would like to know? I'll be waiting on an answer!!!!

Gary Miller

Gary S.> Most who vote Democrat do it because they get their news from the liberal media. Not knowing the truth clouds their thinking.

Craig Mason

Heck I would be happy with a decent Republican as long as they serve the constituents.

Carlos Ponce

Randy is a decent Republican who serves his constituents.

Patricia C Newsom

Whatta uninformed letter writer!

All opinion instead of facts.

Gary Scoggin

"All opinion instead of facts."

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the purpose of the Opinion Section to be a place for people to express opinions?

Patricia C Newsom

Column reads Letters to the Editor, not Opinions to the Editor.

Gary Scoggin

On the website menu it says "Opinion." But I understand your need to disagree with everything a non-MAGA says.

Gary Miller

Patricia> Letters to editor is for facts and opinions. Your choice.

Craig Mason

Gary and Carlos haven’t stated a fact since before the election. They are both stuck in the Trump bubble, which has now been popped.

Craig Mason

Gary Miller not Gary Scoggin

Carlos Ponce

Craig Mason, I have stated plenty of facts but you still stick with the DNC Propaganda handbook.

Charles Douglas

Hey Ms. Newsom! "OG" is right in his assessments true enough, but you made a good evaluation of an OP-ED by challenging the veracity of truth concerning the performance of a good conservative politician representing us.... made by the author! Nothing wrong with that! The difference was the author was not a poster on this thread, but was the author of a public OP-ED offered up for others to either agree, or disagree with. [wink]. Good job!

Carlos Ponce

"yet the Trump administration is holding up delivery of the vaccine for no discernible reason." That's not a fact, that's not an opinion. That's a fabrication - a downright LIE.

Paula Flinn

Carlos Ponce

On Paula's second link, the United States has more suppliers other than Pfizer. There was no guarantee back in July that the Pfizer vaccine would be effective. Best thing to do was spread the contracts over several companies. Pfizer wanted it all.

Charles Douglas

Google is a communist Propaganda Tool used by Red China, and their American Surrogates, consisting of NBA STARS, NFL STARS, HOLLYWOOD STARS, Democratic MEMBERS like Pelosi, Feinstein, Schumer, and Swalwell, who have been handled by Chinese operatives in this country for up to 20 years with the FBI SAYING & doing NOTHING! Where is FANG-FANG? How did she get on a plane and fly back to China undesturbed by American authorities! I know a little bit about law-enforcement after having been trained and having worked inside it for YEARS! One reason Pelosi don't want to anger Swalwell is because the same handler from China was probably handling them both, and both knew this info for years! In short Swalwell is a THREAT TO PELOSI! However with all our ace government agencies on the side of the RADICALS, who will press for this type information? It is why I want to start my Mandarin Chinese classes asap!

Another thing, this is why General Flynn and Trump was so hated by OBAMA/ JOE 99% and the LEFT, because they were a THREAT to all the infiltrations and payoffs China was doing in the high echelon of American government, ie THE SWAMP! IT is why the Radical LEFT tried to frame both men!

Russell Rac

The Trump Administration(which literally changes week to week- its hard to keep up with who has what position considering how many individuals in the past 4 years have been removed and replaced) knew head on that the virus was actively taking it's toll on the Country yet no appropriations were put in place to secure surplus vaccine doses.

I can imagine it being hard to run a country when one isn't in their office, though. Trumpty Dumpty has had more golf course days than office days.

At least I got the Christmas present I was hoping for. Its arriving a bit late, though. Shipped and due to arrive JANUARY 20TH.

Gary Miller

Gary S. Yes of course.

Gary Miller

Patricia> A well known fact is the liberal media publishes very few facts.

Patricia C Newsom

I just felt the need to join in y’all’s conversation this morning.

Nowhere in her letter did Teresa say “in my opinion”, instead she made statements that many would consider to be fact.

Just my opinion. 🙃

Thomas Carpenter

Republican values: greed and power.

Carlos Ponce

As Thomas Carpenter's mentor puts it: A lie told often enough becomes the truth". That seems to be a tenet of the Democrat Party.

Another Democrat Party line: When a Democrat does wrong accuse Republicans of doing it.

Paula Flinn

No. That’s what Trump does. Both things. You really need to read Mary Trump’s book about her family.

Russell Rac

Trump fans are like those bratty kids that when they lost the game in whatever sport they played their daddy had to come on the field, pick them up crying and carry them to the car. Sore LOSER. Mr. Trump's favorite word.

Ted Gillis

It’s projection and Karl Rove perfected it.

Dan Freeman

Fascinating that no one disagrees with Ms Kumelski’s lead points: “Russia has hacked and infiltrated our most sensitive government departments, yet the defense secretary has stopped all Pentagon cooperation with President-elect Joe Biden’s transition team.

We're in the middle of a pandemic that is killing over 3,000 people in this country daily, yet the Trump administration is holding up delivery of the vaccine for no discernible reason. They don't care that people are dying and don't care to lift a finger to stop it.”

As well as the conclusion that Congressman Weber “has been … signing on to seditious frivolous lawsuits that further endanger our democratic processes.”

It follows that while you may be trumpeting your conservative credentials, you accept that Mr. Weber and Mr. Trump have sold out the U.S. to Russia.

I think the current White House misdirection, which even ignores the statement of Secretary Pompeo, is the final demonstration of proof, not opinion.

Charles Douglas

Delusion 101! JOE 97% has mastered the art of selling America out! He knows every aspect concerning the subject! He know how to deceive, and there-by is also gifted at lying and stealing! Not to worry though because Facbook, Google, Twitter, Yahoo The other Big Media TECHS, The FBI, CIA, & EVERY Intelligence Agency in America have being covering, censoring, and lying for him for FIFTY YEARS! Calling Trump a sell out is hilarious, and unconscionable!

Jim Forsythe

I do not think that Thomas Carpenter is a follower of QAnon, unlike others on this forum. Part of QAnon being rest in using " lie told often enough becomes the truth" as the way they conduct themselves.

QAnon is pushing that Trump was robbed and the election was fixed.

Trump has used some of QAnon clips, to try and make his point that he was robbed, even though Trump and his followers have no proof and no path to change the election. QAnon and their followers also likes to say, victory is just around the corner, wait and see and other such things, because they do not have facts to backup what they say.

The political defeat of Donald Trump in the 2020 election is a crossroads for the quasi-political movement grouped loosely around the QAnon conspiracy myth and, more broadly, around Trump himself.

The QAnon movement started early in the Trump administration when a mysterious person, calling himself Q and claiming to be an administration insider, began posting cryptic messages on internet message boards. These consisted of hints and promises that Donald Trump was executing a masterly plan to vanquish his enemies, uproot the Deep State, and restore America to greatness. Their mantra, by which followers (call QAnons) kept the faith, was “Trust the plan.” However bad it looked for Trump, victory was just around the corner.

Carlos Ponce

looks like Jim Forsythe knows more about "QAnon" than the rest of us combined. I don't know anything about "QAnon" other than what Jim has posted. He must be a follower.

Charles Douglas

Very interesting!! Very Interesting!

Jim Forsythe

" lie told often enough becomes the truth"

George Laiacona

Republicans and Democrats will always disagree with each other. It’s already been written in history books. There is still around those of us that are ordinary citizens that at are not to be expected to represent themselves with the vocabulary of lawyers or the poise of politicians.

Carlos Ponce

Which are you? A Democrat, a Socialist or a Communists? Either one, you are definitely to the far Left of center, George.

Gary Miller

On the truth of the election being rigged or stolen. Libs say no truth because the lib media doesn't report it. This month there nearly 100 people being charged with election law violations. A few each in Georgia, Nevada, Oklahoma, Michigan, Nevada, NY and NJ. Less than 10 in each state but representing thousands of votes in each state. Most were about grave yard or double voting. Double voting is the easiest election violation to convict. S. Carolina says they are identifying double voters by the thousand. Most are "snow birds" who live in new England and winter in the south. A few months in jail or a big fine should reduce their violations.

Carlos Ponce

"the lib media doesn't report it" [thumbup]

There's so much coming out about election fraud, Hunter Biden, Swalwell, etc but our Liberal friends will not see it so to them it never happened. CNN, MSNBC, etc - keeping you ignorant.

Gary Miller

Being in my late 80's I can remember when we were represented by Democrats. Webber is a wonderful improvement. I remember when the Texas Primaries selected winners without waiting for the general election. Texas was a one party "democrat' state. Today Democrats think they have a chance but thankfully lose.

Ted Gillis

He already said he was a normal citizen Carlos, so I’m guessing he’s a Democrat.

Carlos Ponce

Ted, who are you posting about?

Thomas Carpenter

Lou Lying Dobbs was forced to admit his lies and fabrications to his prime time audience. So did two other broadcasters on Fox. The election is over. No fraud, you Trumpsters turn on anyone who disagrees with you ... and you're down to a traitor and a whacko lawyer advising Trump to do crazy things. Still crickets from "is he really a congressman" Weber.

Ted Gillis

Attorney General Barr should release the un-redacted Mueller report on his way out the door tomorrow. It would be a classic parting gift as he distances himself from the criminals left inside 1600 Black Lives Matter Plaza.

Gary Miller

Ted> The liberal media didn't cover it when it(Muller report)was released and will not cover it if released again. Not covering it isn't lying but is just as dishonest. The 20% of Americans who believe the liberal media still believe the Muller report was not released. America would be better informed if the liberal media went belly up.

Dan Freeman

Mr. Miller the liberal NYT has covered the release of the Mueller Report in detail. Here is a old link:

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/30/reader-center/mueller-report-media-coverage.html

Thomas Carpenter

In another blast from Trump’s side of the aisle, Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) called the president’s continued snit over his loss “embarrassing.”

“My God. Trying to burn the place down on the way out because you can’t handle losing,” Kinzinger tweeted. “No evidence, nothing but your temper tantrum and crazy conspiracies.”

He called the baseless complaints part of a “grift” that will allow Trump and his backers to “raise money and gain followers by blaming everyone else[,] knowing full well they can’t do anything” to change the election.

“It’s sad, and an utter scam,” Kinzinger wrote.

What happened to the Christmas miracle?

Carlos Ponce

The Christmas miracle happened, Thomas but by keeping it low key Republicans get an edge. The replacement for the most FAR LEFT Senator has been named. If Trump's victory was announced she would not step down. So we wait until AFTER her replacement is seated then she's out of the Senate especially the Senate Judiciary Committee. Putting her back in would upset many Hispanics. Even though Padilla's a Lefty, he would be a newbie and not assigned to a high position. Goodbye Commielah!

Curtiss Brown

Wait? What? The Christmas miracle happened??? When? What miracle. Carlos, you have been telling us to expect a Christmas miracle and then we missed it?? How does that happen? Could you tell us just what miracle we all saw as you predicted that I don't remember?

Carlos Ponce

You didn't miss it, the Nashville bombing took over the news cycle. Let it be a SURPRISE when it happens. If I reveal it now there would be Liberal pundits acting silly trying to debunk it. So, sit back and watch it unveiled to you.

Russell Rac

You realize 5.5% of D.C. voted for your hallowed leader. He's a joke, dude.

Curtiss Brown

I'll be watching.

Ted Gillis

We’ll all be watching, because it’s hard not to look away from a freak show.

Bailey Jones

I'll be watching as well. It's too fun not to. I watched the #worldsbiggestloser lose on election night. I watched him lose again on November 6th when the first media outlet called the election for Biden. I watched him lose again on November 7th when Fox News officially labeled him as #worldsbiggestloser. I watched him lose 59 more times as lawsuits built on alcohol and cheap hair dye foundered against hardheaded jurisprudence. I watched him lose again on December 14th when state after state after state racked up their electoral votes without a single faithless elector coming forward. I watched him lose again on December 15th when the highest-ranking Republican member of Congress declared him to be the one, and truly, #worldsbiggestloser.

I intend to watch him lose again on January 6th - perhaps multiple times if any of his loser compatriots object to any states' electoral votes. And on the 20th I will watch him slink away to Mar-a-Lago like the pathetic loser that he is, unwilling to stand beside and shake the hand of the better man he lost to.

And I've watched as every single prediction and prognostication and every nonsense du jour served up by his cheerleaders in this forum has failed to come to pass. State courts have not intervened. The Supreme Court has not intervened. Faithless electors have not intervened. The military has not intervened. The peasantry has not risen in revolt. The heavens have not opened and God has not intervened. #worldsbiggestloser has lost, and he's taking whatever true believers he has left down with him. And good riddance to them all.

My only issue with all of this losing is that I'm running out of champagne. I received a nice bottle of Prosecco for Christmas that should get me through the 6th. But after that - I may have to crack open that bottle of Courvoisier Millennium Napoleon I put up in 2000. It's just been gathering dust - waiting for a truly epic WIN.

Carlos Ponce

These are not "faithless electors", Bailey. DUELING ELECTORS are sent by the states.

"In a closely contested state, it is theoretically possible for the governor and legislature to submit two different election results, leading to so-called 'dueling slates of electors.' In 1876, dueling electors in three states deadlocked the election until a deal was brokered days before Inauguration Day."

https://graphics.reuters.com/USA-ELECTION/ELECTORAL-COLLEGE/qzjpqaeqapx/

Bailey Jones

OK, Carlos - I'll add DUELING ELECTORS to the long list of your idiotic predictions.

Carlos Ponce

It's not a prediction. It is a fact. Seven states have submitted dual lists of electors.

Bailey Jones

And you idiotically predict that something will come of it. It won't. It's over. Time to pay the piper. Gohmert is just adding embarrassment on top of Paxton's humiliation. Texas is now the clown capital of the nation.

Carlos Ponce

Wait and see!

Carlos Ponce

I'm glad Bailey Jones was not present during the Texas Revolutionary War. "Give it up, Sam Houston. You lost the Alamo, you lost Goliad. Might as well admit defeat and concede to El Presidente Santa Anna." You may have been born in Texas but you sure don't think like a Texan, Bailey Jones.

Ted Gillis

Bailey thinks more like a Texan than either of those two dufos’s you claim to hero worship.

Carlos Ponce

Ted, you were born in Galveston and wound up in Santa Fe. I suggest you not talk politics with your neighbors since a clear majority are polar opposite of your view.

Russell Rac

Carlos- remember this: Sam Houston actually fought in a battle. His family didn't pay to have him sit on the sidelines. Its over. Move on.

Carlos Ponce

It's NOT over. I will listen to God and His prophets.

Gary Scoggin

So Carlos, You mention God often in your comments here with the implication that He will intervene on behalf of President Trump. What is the biblical basis for this? Or has God spoken directly to you on this? You continually assert a special role for God in this but haven’t offered even the vaguest of explanations as to what your assertions mean.

Carlos Ponce

I will listen to God and His prophets.

Carlos Ponce

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t8uxEfhI5Fg

Gary Scoggin

Carlos, thank you for replying and posting the video. I sincerely appreciate it as it helps me understand your position better. My question is this: Is Hank Kunneman a legitimate prophet or just another guy with a website and an opinion? How do we know the difference?

Carlos Ponce

If you don't like Hank Kunneman there are hundreds more all saying the same thing - Black, White, Asian, Hispanic, male, female, Protestants, Catholics, Jews, Americans and world-wide from Indonesia, Ethiopia, South Africa, Australia, England, etc.

Pray for discernment if you question whether each is legitimate.

God directed all who walk in His path on whom to vote for. If you did not hear His word....

Gary Scoggin

“ God directed all who walk in His path on whom to vote for.” Actually, God gave me free will to make that decision. I do my best to apply His principles in making that choice.

Carlos Ponce

And if your "free will" is what Satan wants?

Gary Scoggin

It would be as bad as listening to false prophets, I suppose.

Carlos Ponce

And if these prophets are proven would that change your mind?

Bailey Jones

"I Myself will call to account anyone who does not listen to my words that the prophet speaks in my name. But a prophet who presumes to speak in my name anything I have not commanded, or a prophet who speaks in the name of other gods, is to be put to death. You may say to yourselves, How can we know when a message has not been spoken by the Lord? If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the Lord does not take place or come true, that is a message the Lord has not spoken. That prophet has spoken presumptuously, so do not be alarmed."

-thus saith the Lord

Gary Scoggin

Look at the story of Jesus in the wilderness. Even theDevil can quote scripture. So, no.

Carlos Ponce

You need to study up on prophets, Gary.

Ted Gillis

Yes, and they’re all asking that you send them money.

Curtiss Brown

"You're sitting with Lin Wood. Or has the second coming already started?" Wood is quoted as saying in the brief. "Maybe I'm already here. You want to take the risk that you might be wrong. And I might actually be Christ coming back for a second time in the form of an imperfect man, elevating Christ consciousness."

Curtiss Brown

What worries me is that some fine fellow at the news is spending his/her New Year's Eve approving all of our posts.

Bailey Jones

A thankless task to be sure.

Curtiss Brown

What happened to my last two posts submitted.

Ted Gillis

I read them yesterday.

Russian hackers, maybe?

Curtiss Brown

Good call, Ted, they were frightened away and returned my posts.
