El Gringo Viejo's Observations Concerning the Texas Early Voting


     We are witnessing a peculiar phenomena.  An election is held in the United States of America now with two of the worst candidates, perhaps, in the history of the Republic. It has established a new low combining two hopelessly self-consumed egomaniacs with an electorate that is desperately searching someone who will "give" something to this or that special cohort of the universe of voters.

     Typically, after all the dust settles, it goes back to the same as usual.  The Pseudo - Democrat candidate tries to point out how many bennies she will give to all the downtrodden who have suffered due to the American "Systems of Oppression".
     The pseudo-Republican candidate promises to give his followers a "vision" and more efficient administration of stupid programmes that still would keep people mired in the notion that "the government should do something for.....(enter name of personal gimme-gimme or group gimme-gimme, and/or major operator in some major industry or other human activity gimme-gimme such as the much needed ethanol.)".   Where does the line form for my new glasses?

     However, all of the above notwithstanding, we would like to point out that yesterday morning El Gringo Viejo went to vote absentee....in the ridiculous "window" of voting opportunity that starts, essentially two weeks before election day.  He was among the first.   At 07:59 about seventeen people had voted, all but one Spanish-surnamed.   The line formed up while I was voting.   When I finished there were about 20 persons formed up through the narrow doorway, being used as both entrance and exit.  The line was composed about equally of men and women, with the Latin element composing about 80 per cent of the group.

    All had their proof of citizenship.  I had used my passport.  Only one person did not have identification.   He had been brought in, ostensibly, by his daughter.  She declared that he had never voted, and that he was 92 years old and had no documentation of citizenship but had been born locally of American-born parents.  She had a very old Fe de Bautizo from a local Roman Catholic Church indicating that her father had been baptised as an infant in 1924 in Hidalgo County.   She, herself, had her proof of citizenship, and the old man was permitted to vote on a provisional permit....but immediately registered on the electronic machine. 

     Surmising the group, and after speaking with several as I left, it was apparent that about 90 per cent had voted for Trump.  It is also worth noting that in my driving around during the past few days, in an area where normally Democrat Presidential yard signs will outnumber Republican yard signs easily by a three to one margin....there have been very, very few Democrat / Hillary signs.

     The campaign of Hillary has been touting during the past few days that it is going to make push to "turn Texas Blue!" because the "polls" have shown HRH "within" striking distance, even here in Texas.   Now to the point of this entry in the blog.  We would suggest to HRH that she will not come close to any such measure.   While she might be popular in places like Dallas and Austin, the fact is she is the most thoroughly despised woman or person in the Republic of Texas.   Trump is up there, but HRH (Sir Edmund) Hillary is a few quantum leaps lower that even Trump.

That's all.

Saul Alinksy Speaks from His Cell in Lucifer's Gardens



             This submission to the OROG Library of Truth comes from an old (not in age) classmate of El Gringo Viejo.   She was nicknamed by the males in the McAllen High Class of 1964 as Bridgette Bardot....because her real name initialed-out as B.B.  In a lot of ways, she was and is prettier, and though born to privilege, never acted hootsey-snootsey.  Old Episcopalian, in EYC with El Zorro and El Gringo Viejo, for instance.

David Christian Newton It is a fact that 85% of the Mexican / Spanish element of the population at that time assisted or served militarily in the War Between the States on the side of the Confederacy. The War Between the States had the only General officer in the War who was of Mexican / Spanish origen and it was the Confederacy he served.. He was Gen. Santos Benavides. Much of the very effective military and public order work along the border and inland areas of South Texas was done by Benavides, his two brothers, and their troops who were mainly Latins although many Anglos were in his ranks. Over 80 men from the Penitas - Tabasco area of Hidalgo County enlisted in his brigade. He and his brothers were the main point of reliance in keeping the Cotton Trail open in to Mexico and even to the point of making sure the shipments made their way to Baghdad...the port facility of Matamoros in those times. Benavides was integral to the keeping of order in the non-coastal areas of South Texas...there were many deserters and vagabonds associated with the disorders brought on by the concurrent War between the Imperial government of Maximiliano von Hapsburg and the Republican forces of Benito Juarez Garcia. It is my opinion that John Salmon (RIP) Ford received most of the credit down here for what was actually done by Gen. (and mayor) Benavides and his men. Benavides and his men were the truest form of the best of the Confederacy. The man pictured receives a solemn salute from this SCV member....five dead, 8 wounded, serving mainly out of the Winchester, Tennessee area....also non-slave holders.

Remarkable Legacy......very remarkable.




  The charts alone are enough to convince any non-lobotomized person that Lucifer's work in what looks to be a vineyard has born fruit. The surprise will be when the dolts learn that the wine produced by the fruit is actually hemlock brandy.

   Once again, attribution goes to the Anglican Curmudgeon for having fished this fine piece of analysis out for the hurried horde of producers who still cling to their guns and bibles and sanity....if only by a string.

Mount from the left, milk from the right.....


     The olde carcass just refuses to rebound as it once did.   We put off trying to formulate any reasonable and/or profound observations because there simply was not enough firewood available to even kindle a small fire in the old iron stove.   Five or six relatively minor invasions of the metabolism have lent to the problem.  Our fight against them continues to go well. 

     There are a few points concerning the reportage from the Left and the Right concerning the passage of people from points South of Mexico to the frontier of the United States.   These stories speak to various happenings, policies, and assumed facts that are all inaccurate to a fault.  Some of the stories are purposefully inaccurate.   Included among these stories are others currently being bandied about that are related to the inundation of "migrants" and "refugees" but not in a direct way.

(1)   Sociologically, the people who are hoarding into the United States during these times with the aid of generally leftist "religious" groups, and blatantly anti-American politicians, and the Obsolete Press as well as most of the international press, are not "Migrants".  They are, in fact, either refugees, or displaced persons, or in many cases, invaders.
     Some of the invader group has a psuedo-religious mission, in that it is composed of people who are being shepherded into the United States by leftist, liberation theology practitioners whose mission it is to overload the public assistance programmes to the point that they finally break the American exchequer.  Pastors for Peace, much of the Catholic Charities operation here along the southernmost part of the Republic of Texas, and various other previously respected charitable groups are involved in this mission to introduce millions of people into the country who will begin their indentured servitude instantly by becoming literally injected into the public assistance industry.  We shall have an Anchor Baby Boom in the coming years that might well dwarf the post-World War II, plain old regular Baby Boom period.
     Sister So-and-So who runs the Catholic Charities operation at the Sacred Heart Church in downtown McAllen bemoans the fact that "....there are so many, and they need so much".   She says that right now (this date) there are 200 - 300 women and children coming in every day, and they need disposable diapers, clothes, spending money, a place to wash up and change now that they have their temporary permit to stay in the United States as refugees.   All are going north, almost without delay to glob onto the growing neighborhoods and barrios of incredibly violent Salvadorian, Honduran, and Guatemalan "communities" that are found in most major cities of the United States at this time.
     All these women head north after receiving their permit that allows for them to stay in the United States to await their court hearing date to determine their eligibility to stay as ''refugees".  Over 80 per cent either never receive that notice due to the fact they gave a false address or other locational information, or because they simply disregard the order to appear if they do receive the order.

     It is all a loosely, but carefully, co-ordinated plan that the intellectual social engineers who are intent upon destroying America as a common law, natural law, free-enterprise nation have now placed in full function.   In other words, the engine of destruction is hitting on all twelve cylinders.   Those coming in are not "migrants".   They are, essentially, sociological termite saboteurs. 

(2)    (a) The OROGs (Order of the Readers of the Old Gringo) may have seen a long-distance picture  of a partition wall of considerable strength and height extending for miles, obviously dividing place number one from place number two.   Underneath the photo, it states, ''If Mexico can build this wall between it and Guatemala, why can't we build one here?"
     To respond quickly and accurately, that fence is not on the Guatemala - Mexico border.   It divides Israel from the lunatic jihadi Hamas and Hezbollah murderers in "Palestine".  There is no fencing on the Mexico - Guatemala border save for a few stretches of mediocre to excellent ranch fencing that demarcates property lines mainly.
     The exception might be at the very few official crossing points, there is some fencing near the immigration and processing entry points.

     (b)   The same people who publish that picture, and those who forward it on Facebook, etc. also will intone that, ".....and on the Mexican border, the Mexican Army patrols along there and they just shoot the ones trying to come in illegally."  Suffice to say, such is not the case, at least in 99.99999993% of the cases of anyone crossing in with or without papers.
     There are tales we could tell concerning other distant times, but 80 and 100 years dim the lustre of those images, and many of those tales did not build their houses upon a rock.

(3)   This matter about "The 43 Missing Children of Ayotzinapa" remains a cause-celebre among those on the Left literally all over the Planet.  If anyone sees the articles, please understand that they were not children, nor students, nor are they alive.   They were all killed in a fight to the death struggle between Bolshies and Trotskies.  It was a fight brought on the by the woman who was going to run for Governor of Guerrero and her husband (the presidente of the city/county of Iguala, Guerrero) against the admittedly communist leaders of the false "teachers' college" of Ayotzinapa.   All the aforementioned were involved in the drug transportation and trade, all were involved in sabotaging legitimate businesses that did not pay "war taxes" to their movements, and all were committed to anarchy as a quick resort in order to ply their will in the locale.  The man and wife were of the Trotsky-like group and the rest are out-and-out Bolshies.
     The woman in question, who is in prison now as is her hubby, had two of her brothers killed in a shoot-out about sixty miles away from area above-mentioned.   The shootout was between competing drug transporters and was provoked by their territorial contentions.

(4)     Finally, it would to well to tell everyone that we have actually had an up-tick at the Quinta over the past several months and weeks at the Quinta.  Much of the reason is due to the increasing recognition in our extended area that a reasonable and deepening calm is steadily re-establishing itself to the extent necessary to impulse the actual milling around people used to do before.
     By "before", we mean before that time that the previous three governors tried to limit military "presence" in the State of Tamaulipas.  Many folks might be unaware that Governors of States in Mexico are in most ways subordinate to the Central Government, but they do have wide discretion in terms of accepting or dispersing regular Army or Naval Infantry deployments.   There are exceptions but in the main, it is a rule that is very gummy, sticky, and politically tricky.
     Our new Governor, Francisco Javier Garcia Cabeza de Vaca, a conservative and PAN party member (Republican-equivalent), has made certain that "more is better" and that Tamaulipas is "military friendly".  That is a policy widely, very widely endorsed  in every corner of the State.

More later.
