Texas governor sent bill abolishing position of Harris County elections chief
"The Republican controlled Texas legislature has approved a bill that would abolish the position of elections administrator and Harris county, which includes Houston, only months before that city chooses a new mayor. The bill headed to Republican governor Greg Abbott would return elections oversight in Harris county to the tax assessor and county clerk. Both of which are elected offices currently held by Democrats. Harris county is a democratic stronghold, with more than 2 million voters. The proposed changes come after last year's elections in which local officials have acknowledged problems that included paper ballot shortages and delayed poll openings. Republican candidates have challenged losses in races across the county. However, there has been no evidence that the issues affected the outcomes. Those elections were run by the Harris county elections administrator. I'm Mike Hempen.
Why Wasn't Ron DeSantis at CPAC This Year?
"Not sure if you listen to the Trump speech at cpac, the conservative political action committee. Very interestingly, Trump was there, but not desantis. And I guess this could be because desantis made the evaluation. Hey, listen, this is going to be a Trump Trumpist crowd. They're going to do a straw poll, Trump is likely to win it. So it's going to make me look bad if I sort of compete, so to speak directly in that form. This was at the I believe the club for growth event. He was in a couple of events. Well, one here in Texas, another one in at the Reagan library in California, another Texas event Debbie told me was a big success for the Harris county GOP. They raised a record amount of money. They had a lot of people there. And I saw a picture of desantis at the Reagan library. He had about 1300 people. Now all of this is a way of saying that dissent this actually is able to draw a crowd. He may not be able to draw a crowd. In fact, I don't think he can like Trump, but it's not to say that he doesn't have the appeal to be able to pull people to come to hear and people do want to hear from desantis as well as Trump.
Houston Taco Joint Hero Forced to Lawyer up & Face a Grand Jury
"The good guy with the gun then collects all the cell phones and the wallets and the purses and the money and he returns it to every customer in the restaurant. Every person in that restaurant said that man was a hero. Every single one of them. The owner of the state, the owner of the taco joint said that this guy is a hero, and they had no idea what would have happened, had he not stood up and done because again, nobody knew that it was a fake gun. Nobody knew. So now Houston police, they were trying to figure out who the guy was, the good guy, the good Samaritan, and they finally figured it out, and they brought the guy in for questioning, and now it's possible that this hero could face charges. They're actually bringing this before a grand jury. And I can't imagine anybody on that grand jury willing to send this guy to prison or to indict this guy. So anyway, the good guy with a gun had to lawyer up, so now he's out money. The attorney by the name of one guerrera junior released a statement. I want to read this to you. He says, my client, who wishes to remain anonymous, was dining with a friend at el ren chito, taco place. And by the way, it looks like a great taco joint. And as it has been seen on video, a robbery suspect under the restaurant pointed a weapon at my client and the other customers demanding money. In fear of his life and his friend's life, my client acted to protect everyone in the restaurant. In Texas, a shooting is justified and self defense, defense of others, and in defense of property. The customer has met with the Harris county district attorney's office and investigators with HPD homicide. He fully intends to cooperate with the ongoing investigation. When the investigation is complete, this case will be presented to a grand jury. We are confident a grand jury will conclude the shooting was justified under Texas law.

"Have seen the slow assist. Dr morales is the head of reef md. Let's talk about testing procedures. I had a guy call in a few days ago and he was quoting from the cdc site. And i think he was taken out of context but he said the test is not as accurate in the. Cdc has has changed their opinion on that. Can you talk about the various tests that are done. How quickly we get the result and the accuracy of them. Yeah the city c. Thing is a little bit complicated and noth- nothing that anybody needs to worry about it concerning differentiating the code from flew in one particular way of testing. But it's not widespread spread problem and really not anything anybody to worry about The different tests. Pc are there's the rapid antigen There's different ways of doing pc are a saliva. There's a flop and There's cycled rational which is a little bit complicated but some of the bigger labs are known to have higher cycle thresholds. Which is more likely because it's dead virus so there's a high higher risk of a false positive the Rapid antigen was a little less sensitive to that i would want. How is that the spit or the the little news or charged. That's one that go in your pickler and then as you put it And then but there's also saliva tough. There's debate over which one is more accurate. We did our own internal study and found the saliva test to be more accurate but not by a huge margin. So i you know. I think either method is perfectly fine. The the one that we have in our Office the is a rapid. Pcr which means you get back within a couple of hours that is a slob where you have to the very back but the nice thing about it is it does test for multiple viruses. Eighteen different viruses. So you know if you have flu or sb or there's some other issues going on and also tests for three bacteria that can cause upper respiratory infections the The last rapid way takes well right now. The there's with a surge taking a day and a half sometimes two days In that sent off to an outside lab and we. I mean today's a long time. If you think you might have it right well you think you might have it. You should have seen habits until you know and and do what. I love the monoclonal. Antibodies or gener- on. We've been doing that. That is what. What is the application. That i'm i'm trying i'm trying to explain. It's a i know but you gotta let me talk. It's because you go off into a bunch of terms that people don't like otolaryngology and it doesn't help. I have never said otolaryngology. Just all you anyway. Three gener- on is monoclonal antibody. It's two different types so in prior surge we had monoclonal antibodies. But we only have one and so it wasn't as effective. This is a combination of two different ones. So it's better at hitting the delta on it can be given even if you don't have cova which is awesome so if you suspect you have covet or if you've been in close contact with somebody who has survey you can get it and it's a one time deal. It's either get three shots near but or you can get an iv. and i the takes them fusion. Itself is only tennessee sees medications so it does not take long And then you are you in the earlier. The better we. We've just put a thing on my blog about what we've done over six hundred people. What people's responses are and We only had three percent end up going to the er after treatment. I mean not because of the treatment because the treatments failed and and Yeah and we have not seen bad serious reactions reactions. We seen our rash in pain or swelling at the injection site. Some people go on to have more severe ovid symptoms which i think some people think that's from the monoclonal antibody infusion which is hard to say but no one has had any kind of in a lexus or heart problems or anything like that. That's concerning and i feel like it's a safe treatment. It's if supported by the medical establishment. It's not controversial and we've seen great results so the monoclonal antibodies you recommend only after a positive or why thank you should jump on it if you think you have cove it and if you're waiting for a test and you have good reason you've been exposed. You should get the monoclonal antibodies. How long are they good for ninety days. Okay so then would you just come back in ninety days again. Well we'll have to see what the company says. It has not been talked about yet effective. But why wouldn't you. I don't see a reason why you couldn't guess has not come up yet. I well well so there is a little catch. You can't get the vaccine for ninety days. Afterwards so i suspect that that's part of the reasons because you know it's interfering with back nations. Do you think that for a healthy person monoclonal. Antibodies and no vaccine is better than a vaccine. No monoclonal antibodies. And that's that's a bad question. But i I think the vaccine is an individual choice. I understand that people. That are nervous about it. You don't want to answer. But that means i know what the well hold on. Let me finish. I will just say and i will. I will say that from our testing and from all the people that were giving treatment to monoclonal. Antibodies about half of these people have been vaccinated. Which if this were the flu and half the people who got a flu shots were getting the flu be. Everybody would say okay. The flu shots not working. So i i've been underwhelmed by the efficacy efficacy of the vaccine based on what i'm seeing in my clinic that say that line again i have been underwhelmed by the efficacy of the vaccine based on what i am seeing in my clinic. Based on my personal experience the vaccine is not the be all end. All people think it is not to say it's not effective in most cases but it's not the solution to all our problems fair. hold on. mary bowed. you stay with us. you don't have to actually practice medicine right. You can just talk to us.

Abbott has signed into law a bill. That bans twenty four hour and drive thru voting and he also has new hurdles on mail in ballots. Any also has empowered partisan poll watchers. Here's what he had to say. I'd be astonished if a law like this was not challenged in court. I feel extremely confident. It will be upheld and a quarter of law because exactly what we've said it does make it easier for people to be able to go vote. No one who is eligible to vote will be denied the opportunity to vote it does however make it harder for cheaters to cast an illegal ballot humidity. Collards not cheaters. And this is definitely going to restrict voting act test for marginalized voters particularly people of color and people with disabilities. Because what they're saying now is last year they offer dragged through voting twenty four hour early voting in particular harris county where houston is but now the bill restricts. The hours accounts can offer early voting to between six. Am and ten pm and prohibits things like What was used in harris county when garage at the toyota center. Which is where the houston rockets play was among the venues. That residents could use to vote from their vehicles. It also blacks counties from sending unsolicited mail and voting applications even to who are over the age of sixty five and therefore and therefore order automatically qualified vote by mail at places new rules around in boating and it also gives more protection for partisan poll-watchers and sets new limits on those who helped voters including people with disabilities cast their ballots only know the voter suppression law signed right in our faces and when you got the white supremacy court upholding voting restrictions in arizona.

This law does fan abortion as we talked about his earliest six weeks into a pregnancy. Even if a woman has been raped or incest has been committed. And here's what he had to say about Forcing victims of rape to give birth. Why force a rape or incest victim to carry a pregnancy to term It doesn't require that at all. It provides at least six weeks for a person to be able to get an abortion that said however let's make something very clear rape is a crime and texas will work tirelessly to make sure that we eliminate all rapists from the streets texas by aggressively going out and arresting and prosecuting them and getting them off the streets.

It seem as if the i'm doing some wacky that's completely ineffective. Cnn was saying that. I'm a distributor of misinformation. But what's crazy is look better are are pretty quick media. Didn't just lie about ivermectin overdoses. in oklahoma. the associated press forced to issue embarrassing correction after pushing a story that went viral that claimed seventy percent of calls to the mississippi poison control center where from people who had ingested ivermectin. The truth is that it's about two percent in an article published in late august about people taking and to try to treat cova. The ap erroneously reported seventy percent recent costs mississippi poison control center. Were from people who had ingested ivermectin to treat cove nineteen state epidemiologist. Dr paul buyer said wednesday. That's not true it's down about two percent. He said seventy percent whereby people who ingested the veterinary version of the medicine. Don't take horse medicine.

Md dr boden. What is all the fuss about ivermectin I honestly don't understand all the fuss I my heart goes out to pete lopez his family i think that's a travesty and I think you know it's an off label use but it's gotten blown way out of control and You know. I think he said it very well with its yeah The joe rogan One of noble peace pry the people that created the drug nobel peace prize. That's on the world health organization's list of most important medications in these people that are saying well do no harm There is there's not very much evidence at all that it it's dangerous You know the it's just gotten out of control and I think part of it is the medical establishment is inflexible and doesn't want to be told what to do. And but you think about it. If one of these people denying the drug to adine patient what they would do if one of their relatives were in the same situation. And i guarantee you if they had a child that was dying of kovin. They would want that child to try the ivermectin. If nothing else at work and i it's just astounding to me that this kind of thing is happening. What do you think is the first of all you prescribe medicine acton. Yes okay win. Generally speaking every case is different. When is ivermectin appropriate. What types of patient and at what point is this something you suggest. People be taking before their covert positive or upon a positive. Is there a point at which it's too late to take it or did it does more harm than good I don't think there's any point at which it does more harm than good i. I do think there's sort of hysteria that everybody's gotta get their hands on ivermectin and that's a little bit much but You know i. I let i let the patient decide we talk about it. We you know. It's it's research that most people have researched it before they come to talk to me and understand that it's off label long as they understand that i am completely fine letting them have their hands on it. What is it being off label. What to the person it's not you know. Every drug has specific indications for how it's to be used off label means that this is. This is something that has not specifically been approved by the fda and fda approval is very tedious Intricate process so there are medications out there that doctors will prescribe that are not under the fda guidelines But still have been found to be efficacious. Just haven't gone through all the rigmarole to have that proven. What are some other examples of a common off label. Applications of drugs now. It's a good question. I'm trying to think of an emt what i would prescribed off label I think i don't know off the top of my head but as an emt it's less common cause we do antibiotics. Allergy medication But yeah i have no qualms about ivermectin and i let you know power to the we have give some power to patients. It's not it's not a one sided deal the doctor It's not. I think a lot of people. Maybe are worried about getting sued. Well that's just a restraint and have to take a doctor that's just part of our profession and I believe that a discussion between the doctor and the patient and not shirley the doctor's decision And along the doctor is one of the patient says and then You know let them habit.

"There. No sir second skimpy constable. Ted heap is our guest constable. Let's talk about what brought you to our attention this morning. And that is the rollover funds and harris counties. Democrats deciding to peel those. What exactly are they doing in. Why does this matter. Michael rollover funds stardom referred to a savings accounts and and the reality is rollover funds. Or when you're fiscally prudent in your in your budget sometimes it's because you may have openings as far as manpower throughout the year but rather than everybody spending their money in the last two months of fiscal year on things that are not needed It was put into place probably. I don't know ten twelve years ago that we have a portion of that Being able to roll over for us to be able to use within the department on things so we wouldn't have to go back to the budget office. Wouldn't have to go back to the tax payers and say hey we need fifty thousand dollars for best so we need another hundred hundred. Twenty thousand dollars for training or for tasers cartridges. We could utilize our rollover funds and it is limited. You still have to ask. Commissioner scored borlaug station to be able to use those funds over the years that has become part of the budget that we have depended on and so whether or not i think he parts were saying budget rollover funds. The reality is that get is part of the money that we rely on as i stated before last year on million this year two million this year i have four four because they took eight point. One eight point seven million dollars my role over fund and utilized it for other programs You know. I don't know what programs those are so i'm not gonna say whether or not it's a wise choice. As far as that goes. I just know what position it puts us in and law enforcement and it would be very difficult for me to be able to say that you know somebody can utilize funds better for law enforcement than those who are on the street and who are running the department themselves. I mean one point two million people in my precinct and about three hundred square miles It's probably the most populous precinct of of the eight in harris county. And i believe that the people who elected put me in office know best how they want that money spent to be able to protect them from not doing a good job. They've got an option to elect somebody else to do that job better than me. Would you say those numbers again. How many square miles. I have about three hundred square miles within my precinct. and accept population is about one point two million people so with a spike in crime. The democrats on harris county commissioners court are reducing. Your budget they have reduced. They would argue and say that it was not my budget. What i'm saying is they reduced my available funds to be able to deter crime to fight crime now to me that is the funding and reducing my budget. Yes if instead of cutting eight million of your rollover funds they had given you an additional eight million more than what you had. Where would you spent that. Well i think that one technology is always important. I think that we have to be up to date with technology I think that helps us to fight. Crime but I think anytime that we have the flexibility of putting more officers as i stated before and some of these Trending areas than i think that we we pretty much snuff a fire out before it becomes rachel buyer so we're able to determine through communication with the city of houston communication with sheriff's department and we do community. We share a lot of information meet regularly and so this is stuff that we do jointly. Those funds would have been used to put more manpower on the streets as far as some challenging areas and in underserved areas areas. That may not have as much visibility. Well an important to understand that while there are overlapping jurisdictions a big portion of precinct. Five last time i saw the map was outside the city of houston. So you got a lot of folks who don't have hp resources being thrown at them and they pretty much have the sheriff's department and and the precinct five commissioner and there's some some pretty hot crown areas out there. Well that's true Precinct fog when you look at The the map has about fifty fifty in the city and fifty percent of the unincorporated harris county. But last year we answered Almost two hundred fifty thousand calls for service in this in the city of houston and Just under that and the unincorporated county so you know one. That doesn't make any difference. People don't care what uniformity is. What color your car is what w uniform when something is happening when they call nine one one when they call for law enforcement when they have a Something going on in their life. They just wanna police officer. They're they need somebody there to take control of the situation. And that is where the departments worked together There is overlapping jurisdiction. But there's never been a problem. People say all the time that there's overlapping efforts as far as that is a waste of resources. I would argue with that day in and day out It's very refined as far as we don't have multiple agencies responding to one scene unless it's it's warranted very interesting. Well i will tell you.

If you're looking for any potential silver lining To Inauguration day in January. The 20th Might it be the official beginning of the end of the covert 19 pandemic and your ability to get around hard to imagine considering all the draconian rules the Democrats have put in But now, of course they have. Ah, Joe Biden have to make look good. Dr. Brian. June Deaf joins us with American thinker. What'd you happens? What do you Where do you think the goalposts change of anywhere? Dr. June deaf starting January, 20th. Well, I think they may classify death in a different manner that they have been doing. For the past year. Anyone dying with Cove ID is classified as a covert death. And very simply, they can change the classifications to what most other countries do. Not classified coded death unless it's from covert. Or that's the predominant factor leading to death. They could also acknowledge that the PCR test is very sensitive. And is even the New York Times reported a few months ago. Maybe up to 90% false positives. All of a sudden, they change what's called the amplification cycle from 40 down to 25, which is more reasonable. And cases go away all of a sudden.

Well, then it's not such a high rate. But you know, the healthy people aren't going to get tested. Now, are they That's correct test too readily available. The only healthy people getting tested to those that want to travel or they might have been exposed. But you're not testing mass population on dweeb. Never done that before we we don't Run flu tests on people randomly or require a flu test before you want to fly to New York or Hawaii. We're best thing, everybody. This is not being handled like previous similar Viral pandemics have been Well, they changed the rules. And I think it's on purpose to make the current administration look bad.

How long is after a while? Well, it went too long. Because my dad just I mean, he just went on. He said. Hey, you know what he told me and I'm kind of carried it with me is Hey, uh, you know, I worked every I worked every day. It's hard that could for, uh, for that person. And they paid me every day for my work and that you know, and he's so that's the bottom line. You know, they've got the right is 13. If they want to change, they change, you know, so And And like, like you said, you know, two kinds of coaches. Well, I didn't think I was gonna be one because I thought I thought I was doing a heck of a job of coaching. Then we got fired. So, um, But there you just don't you, don't you? Don't worry. You don't worry about what somebody else did especially After it's already done. But it wasn't handled right. Can we agree to that? Uh, well, I mean, you know, I don't know. I don't know if you find somebody, you fire somebody. I mean, it's uh Yeah, it could be better, Certainly. But, uh, you know, it's still done either way, but it didn't. It didn't bother me. I mean, it really didn't. He just felt like you did this because he could do And somebody said they You know you have to go somewhere else. There was then a move. Obviously, they replaced the head coach and they wanted to stick you to your contract and make you stay in coach and you say, Look, you didn't just fire My head coach. You fired my dad. You didn't want to stay talk about that. If you would Yeah, I mean, they came to us. First, they came to the assistant coaches. Part of it was a I don't know why, but I don't know a whole gist of it, but I know part of it was. Hey, we just need to get rid of bomb. We got great assistant coaches, you know?

And then you say it was one of our greatest coaching jobs ever. Nobody spends much time on the New Orleans portion of the Phillips coaching career, but you seem very proud of it.
