Congressman Randy Weber sent me a personal letter.

“Thank you for taking the time to share your support for President Donald Trump,” he wrote. “I stand with you in backing the President against the unfounded attacks by Democrats.”

Problem: I don’t support Trump, as Weber and staff should definitely know.

Fact: I’ve told Weber staffers on the phone that I deplore Trump and Weber should as well.

Question: Why would Weber send me such a letter?

Answer: Because he and his staff ignore what people actually say in calls and don’t actually care what a majority of people believe. Weber and his staff ignore facts.

In his letter, Weber maintains the transcript of Trump’s July 25 talk with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky proves “there was no wrongdoing.” That’s a lie.

Truth: Weber is a right-wing radical. He backs a criminal who calls parts of our Constitution “phony” and likens the constitutional process of impeachment to a “lynching.” Weber claims to be a Christian, but supports all the un-Christian things Trump says and does. He should be publicly condemning Trump.

Please dump Weber in 2020. He cares nothing for the beliefs, needs and aspirations of average citizens — and never will.

Must lead a sad life to hate without justification.

Gary Miller

The Ukraine President said the transcript of his conversation with Trump was accurate.

The whistle blowers account was second or third hand and not even close to accurate.

Guess which a devoted Democrat would believe?

Charles Douglas

Mr.Miller> What whistleblower? There is no whistleblower, ...it's just some phony DEEP STATE operatives, working with Shifty-Schiff, trying to do what they will never do! Many of us already know this, because we have eyes to see that Trump and BB NETANYAHU are not going anywhere, where still many others are just wishing to no avail.

Gary Scoggin

I see you got the talking points down.

Carlos Ponce

I guess when the vote to impeach comes up short Gary Scoggin will call that a "talking point" too.

Carlos Ponce

So much hatred in Kevin's letter! With a great economy the incumbents in this area are likely to win re-election and that includes Weber and Trump. When you find a candidate that you can endorse please write again - if there's anyone perfect enough for your endorsement, that is. There's a reason why most Evangelicals and church going Catholics in this country endorse Trump. Seek the truth rather than pursuing baseless propaganda. I predict your Galveston County neighbors will vote as they did in 2016. Even with a negative campaign ran by his opponents, Trump won 60% of County votes in 2016. Randy Weber won 65% of County votes in 2016, 61% in 2018.

Charles Douglas

Gary, talking points has nothing to do with it. We have an individual who has no first hand knowledge of anything, who out of the clear blue sky reported something to Shifty- Schiff that others says never happened and later the transcript proved did not happen the way Schiff said the operative told him and his staff. Also, the operative told Schiff and staff all those lies before he/she filed a made up fake report to the IG! I'm not worried about any of this stuff! This whole barrel of lies has begun to BOOMERANG on the Left, Schiff, and Pelosi! This Russian Operative who helped Comey, Brennan, and Clapper, and Struzok set Trump up, is now hiding in ITALY, with people protecting him. It is said that his life has been threatened, ...and I think he sung like a canary to Dunham, and Barr! This is why attorneys are at a premium in DC NOW, I'M told. I don't see big Jim Comey in the woods looking up at tree tops, tweeting " I have questions any more!" Brennan, Clapper, Struzok, and McCabe are mighty quiet now too! I don't blame them, ...time for consequences and repercussions.

Michael Jozwiak

I'm surprised the GDN lets you comment so much. Many are worthless, and if you can't get everything in one comment, give up.

Carlos Ponce

Jealous, Michael Jozwiak?

Charles Douglas

Well Mr. Jozwisk, I'll try to help you with your question as to why GDN allows me to post as much as I like. The reason is that I have the same rights as you, unless you think we are STILL in the Old South, "MASSA." Another reason is My subscription is paid up to date as I assume your's is. Let's not get personal here okay? You post your liberal opinions and I post my conservative ones. You have no more rights on this forum or in this country than anyone else! Now, lets move on now that the air is cleared and we have an understanding! Oh, if you ever purchase the GDN, then we shall revisit this discussion.

Charles Douglas

Mr. Jozwiak> I forgot to respond to my posts being worthless in your opinion. Well you should consider doing what I do when your post appears to me. I just glance right by and read the next post of whoever that is. Makes sense to me, ... no muss...no fuss! Lol.

Michael Jozwiak

I too, have written Congressman Randy "Photo Op" Weber letters that have gotten no response. Even though I may not agree with him, as a constituent, he doesn't even have the decency to respond. Randy's all over Facebook with "Photo Ops" to pose under causes for which he's had nothing to do, just seemingly taking credit for the accomplishments of others, whether it's actual legislation or a win at a local sport event. Mr Moran is correct: Weber is Worthless and only gets elected clinging to coattails while doing nothing in his office and ignoring the problems of this area and of his constituents. He's nothing but a "Photo Op" Congressman.

Carlos Ponce

"Even though I may not agree with him," I believe that says it all. Your post sounds very partisan. Have you ever taken the time to talk with him in person? As many times as he's been in the area there's been ample opportunity. I've spoken with him several times in person. But go ahead and vote against him if you like. You didn't vote for him each time he won. [cool]

Craig Mason

I agree. I met him right after he was elected. I really had high hopes for him. I just think he is out of touch with his constituents.

Carlos Ponce

"out of touch"? He votes the same way I and most of voters in Congressional District 14 would. Not 100% but pretty high. Maybe you'd be happier with someone with Sheila Jackson Lee's voting record- or Maxine Waters, or AOC and her "squad".

Craig Mason

Maybe, maybe not?

Bailey Jones

I couldn't disagree more. When Bernie is elected president and we start to get free EVERYTHING - which, as Republicans have explained to me in these pages ad nauseam - is the goal of Democrats - we're going to need congressmen with the courage to ignore spending increases, national indebtedness, and traditional Republican "fiscal conservatism". And that's Randy Weber - he was 100% behind Trump's increasing military spending from $550B to $700B, and he was 100% behind Trump's tax cuts which have helped raise the deficit from Obama's paltry $585B in 2016 to Trump's $665B (2017), $779B (2018), and this year's amazing $984B. He's 100% behind everything Trump does - 100%!!!

And where Obama SQUANDERED his deficits on averting a world wide economic collapse, Weber has supported Trump's plans to spend our children's future on tax refunds and new guns and stuff - that's the kind of head in the sand politicking we need!

Vote Weber - he'll win anyway!

Michael Jozwiak

"He'll win anyway" ??? Obviously you have no strong political convictions at all. If that's your position, just stay home.

Bailey Jones

I'm well known for my utter lack of political conviction.

Carlos Ponce

And Bailey posted that with a straight face. [rolleyes]

Bailey Jones

BAWA HA HA HA HA

Carlos Ponce

Now that's fitting.

Carlos Ponce

Bailey, the tax reductions have produced more income for the US government. See "Go Figure: Federal Revenues Hit All-Time Highs Under Trump Tax Cuts"

https://www.investors.com/politics/editorials/trump-tax-cuts-federal-revenues-deficits/

The military needed rebuilding after years of neglect. Trump had a choice of signing an omnibus funding bill proposed by the Democrat House with a lot of pork - or shut the government down. He reluctantly signed it.

Bailey Jones

That's just what Trump said! Also, deficits are fake news.

It's a shame, Trump could have been a deficit hero - reining in spending during a record economic expansion - and done something no president has accomplished since Clinton (the budget surplus, not the sex scandal). But I get it, making deals is hard - I hear there's an art to it. I can certainly commiserate with you that Trump wasn't up to the task.

Carlos Ponce

"Trump could have been a deficit hero - reining in spending during a record economic expansion..." The HOUSE writes the budget. Trump could have vetoed the omnibus bill but then Bailey would say, "Trump shut down the government!" It's the Democrat game plan - add a lot of pork into the bill. If the Republican Senate doesn't go along the Democrats would claim Republicans shut down the government. If the President vetoes it, they will say he shut down the government. If the president signs it, Democrats (like Bailey) would say he increased the deficit ignoring their role in it. Politics as usual. Devilish creatures these Democrats. I'm surprised Bailey did not add "BAWA HA HA" at the end of his post.

Bailey Jones

Yesssss - The Dems resisted, and Trump caved. I understand he's not used to that kind of behavior, having no previous political experience. Maybe he could ask Obama how to deal with a contrarian congress? Or Bush? Or Clinton? Or other Bush? Or Reagan? Or any of the governors and mayors who deal with political reality every day?

Carlos Ponce

This is the way Democrats play - Government shutdown - blame the Republicans. With a Liberal media to back them, only the gullible believe. And yes, Bailey does.

Charles Douglas

Only thing I think President Trump should've asked President Obama was Why he allowed "Hands Biden" and his son along with "Crooked Hilliary" to go rogue profiting off play for pay payday schemes while pretending to be public servants in his administration! Well, a close second would be, how in "#<'ll did he hoodwink someone into giving him a Nobel Peace Prize for nothing? Still again, he might've ask him why would anyone who cared for America, and those who gave life and limbs in sacrifice to make it great, would allow utter chaos, illegal unmasking, counter intelligence targeting, and illegal wiretapping of American citizen, to run wild and rabid in his administration? Two things about a man who allow such things to happen: 1) He was as CROOKED, and wickedness as those who perpetuated the acts if he knew about them...or.. 2) He was grossly incompetent, gullible, void of proper leadership skills, and prone to be disrespected by his subordinates, if he did not know! Neither one is anything to write home about.

Charles Douglas

Mr. Jones, thank you. I wasn't sure about Mr. WEBER. I usually cherry pick my ballots, but I'll take your recommendation and be sure to vote for Mr. WEBER this time! I usually surf this forum for fun, but sometimes you can pick on some abundance of great information! I am nothing but greatful sir.

Bailey Jones

Randy appreciates your support!

Gheesh. I read all of these posts from the beginning to end thinking I would get some useful insight on what my district neighbors think. I see nobody has anything useful to say, just sniping back and forth.
