How many people would show up for a Lubbock county Republican party event versus how many people would show up for a Jody Errington hint Errington, by the way, played a big role in the headline earlier today because I have met dough trae on my notifications on Twitter that dice air force base will now be the site at which the B Twenty-one weapons training in for the b twenty one weapons tr. Raining and test squadron, but the thing is with Errington. Not everybody has to think alike and believe a like they can agree with each other on seventy or eighty percent of the issues, but whenever it comes to this Lubbock county Republican party by God, you better be at the right place on Sunday. And you better express the same talking points as everybody else is just sheep will in. It drives me crazy in what drives me crazy. Is that west Texans bother very virtue like doing all this work on incest dot com?

I didn't wanna make a though there are some who I've talked with people who may not look like everybody else show up to an event in film like their their second class at those events. That's not my my argument. My argument is more audio logical that there needs to be some flexibility, and you know in. Here's the deal, the Lubbock county Republican party may not feel sorry. If you're outside of Lubbock, but this is pertinent to like, we've got listeners in places where like in the rolling plains where there wasn't a county Republican party until two thousand twelve but we've got some, hyper partisanship.

"Today. Today's announcement is an acknowledgement that the Cruz campaign deprived voters of critical information. Not me. I mean, I've known this about cruise. Why didn't vote for crews in the presidential primary? Why voted for Trump over crews in? I think it's a lot of people went in. And we'll never admit publicly. They voted for Benoa Rourke over cruise. In the home stretch. This is a senior director of campaign legal center in the home stretch, the high profile election voters were misled about cruises, personal and came pain finances. This is particularly harmful given that financial issues were at the issue. In the campaign and could have factored into voters decision making at the ballot. You know, womb on it. And we close out the program. Pointed this out before but I'm going to go back to it. And probably put something on about social media later. There are a lot of good Republicans in Lubbock county. I want to start with that. Disclaimer. The problem is is that so many of them are not involved in the local party anymore because the local party has just gone out. I mean, it's wingnut crazy. If you follow the Lubbock Democratic Party. There are exceptions. And I would say within a leadership there are exceptions. But by and large a bunch of people who are left in the vacuum of cable news in don't have real jobs and just go to town on like, oh, you cannot say anything good about George Mahan. I a congressman who vowed out nineteen Seventy-nine because he's a Jim crow democrat like all this identity politics being extrapolated, it's cultural imperialism and put upon Democrats of generation ago. But I'll tell you this the Lubbock county Republican party is much mess. As is the democratic county party me, it is a absolute disaster. Look, no further than the official Facebook of the Lubbock county Republican party. And there was this. This cartoon that was put up doing the spot memory. It's a lot of people in different colored jackets. A lot of cartoon figures that kind of look the same that go through banner in it's called public schools. And they all come out looking the exact same. It's the Lubbock county. Republican party's way is saying. That everybody goes through public schools is homogeneous, but it's my way of saying this how far from fricken reality or you guys removed that you're gonna come down on spring lake earth is St. you're gonna come down on idolize. Let's stick within Lubbock county. Shallow water is the even down in the Lynn new home that you're gonna come down within all the is Steve's in Lubbock and say that public education is some sort of racquet some sort of propaganda machine. And that's one for you. That's why you've completely. That's why there are fifty to seventy five people in our hope that upper breasts within the Lubbock county Republican party because this program is certainly shifted a lot of things. In how we work politically locally. But I hope that you guys see that sort of messaging and whatever goof in L bet you fifty dollars right now the person who runs the Lubbock county Republican Facebook page works for a state entity. I will promise you that right now. That's not to say on the who they are which I do know who they are. So it is to say who I know who they are. But they work for a state entity. Okay. They work for the the state that you fear so much that runs the economy in Lubbock county, agriculture medical and education public in higher. Ed. In what a bunch of buffoons. You guys are that you would let these people get away with the sort of stuff.

"He's championed school vouchers. He's proposed cutting college financial aid and during the last legislative session. He led the push for a bathroom Bill in this part of the world, Lauren. It wasn't called bathroom Bill. It was called a shower. Bill. You don't want juniors going into shout junior boys going into showers athletic showers with your seventh grade girls in in you can call it a scare tactic in college. It was a tactic. Nonetheless. Oh, but out in this part of the country were Dan Patrick ran commercials relentlessly against might call your as did other statewide elected to barely won by six percent. That's called conservative is Dan Patrick now. The arbiter of what's called conservative in Texas is he looked at as the denominator between what's conservative and what's liberal in? What's right? And what's left? Oh, I don't know if I can answer that question. It's a good one though. I mean, I think that's a conversation for the Republican party Republican circles, the, you know, we we are putting people on a spectrum, right? This year of who's liberal or now with who's liberal and who's conservative, but these conversations when you go into the the the conferences, Texas GOP, you know, annual semi annual conference that they do these are some of the most far right members. And then when we talk about primary voters, these are some of the most far, right? So I think the definition of conservative is really up to Republicans and up to those inner circles to have this conversations. But I hope they're having them because it's a really interesting question and one that is becoming increasingly murky murkier as we see these divides. You know, it's we used to say that there were three parties in Texas when the Democrats were in power power. Because Democrats would split between the two of them. Right. And now we have splits within the Republican party. So there's the Republicans the Republicans, and the Democrats, and I think that there's always gonna be disagreement over what a true liberal is. What a true true conservatives. But that's not that. I don't think that's neat for me to answer that court will become raise the question to ask you this Lauren in this part of Texas, and I saw even the Lubbock county Republican party the other day put up a post on their Facebook run a nail public education, which in this part of the state. You know, it's I don't want to bore you with stuff that you might have already heard me say, but it's a constellation of rural independent school districts in the life, but lifeblood communities is their public education system, and we're going to run the on public education. Like, I don't think that's what conservatives in this part of the. State think about whenever they think about liberal and conservative. So I don't know how well it plays for the Luton. Or maybe the Lieutenant governor knows more than I think he knows in that I'm going to give teachers a pay raise I'm gonna give you know this teacher in spring lake earth five thousand dollars, which would be you know. I would venture to say a seventh more than they made last year. Maybe maybe he knows more than teepee PF. Maybe he knows more than Julie McCarthy, maybe he knows more than Michael Quinn Sullivan. Well, let me ask you who. Do you think the arbiter of the term conservative should be? Is that up to the top leaders that the governor's job is that some think tank who should answer that question. Well, I mean, Ma I three options are all out of the Houston. So I don't know. I I would think that Bonnin of all the speaker of the house would be able to delineate what's liberal in conserved? Because he deals with a large group of of people with the term GOP side to them. Yeah. I think that he's more on the ground. And that's what's so fascinating about the house ride is that you're more connected in with your superintendents with your local communities in, you know, the aforementioned issue of Democrats, not showing up to create a Corum in Texas house committee that for me is more of a of a signal on what's liberal, and what's conservative..

They are not on board with that. They want to continue. The course that we're on and it's not gonna fix anything and ultimate thing. At the end of the day is nobody's property taxes are going down.

"When was the last time? Let me ask you. This dot was last time. You went to a Lubbock county Republican party of Vince never. And I think a lot of people would sit on none. I I mean back in the past. I used to be actively involved and wanting to be actively involved in the Republican party. But. But it's not that. They just don't follow the same mindset and thoughts that you. And I share. And I think a lot of people, and that's why like at their annual within there's like seventy five people. Yeah. And there's no one finger to point there, though, I've got a couple of names in mind. But it's just what these political parties on the county levels have dwindled into is a national Lynn's on what's going on locally and people just don't jive with it. So guess what you got one Saturday a year in which you're gonna have your big annual event. And there's a reason why seventy five people show up on both sides. Right. Even though buying large the Republican party should have. I mean justed for the amount of people that vote Republican should should have several hundreds or thousands of people are actively involved in their local committee loss touch because they don't in. This is the point that I make is that did, you know of our top employers in Lubbock. Hold on. I'll pull this up. The majority are. Our government entities. In of that majority. I think some eighty two percent our government jobs now government, I say government. I mean, you MC I mean, Texas had. And the UC physicians network, but in that's not egg. By the way, that's non egg numbers that some seven or eight out of the top ten, and if you can't in this is my thing jas if let's say in another universe. Beddoe Aurore came into Lubbock and said you guys do a fantastic job with government. You've harnessed government. You make it work for you. People would say how so in all you have to answer three easy questions about how. So and we in Lubbock make government worked for us. There's no doubt about it in all these non like you started up eighty auto. How many nurses, how many teachers how many how many government employees have you had in call nurses? I don't mean to call nurses, government employees in. I think certainly every teacher goes to work everyday like every other professional, but how much of their paycheck is made up by Medicaid and Medicare in other government entities. Right. And I'm not meaning to put anybody's knows. I'm not I I don't mean to put anybody's nose in cal-, Patty. That's not the point. Because a lot of us here. A lot of us that are in business know-how Lubbock works. What makes it turn the KANU the knowledge that just mentioned and government does make Lubbock Lubbock never has a recession. No, I'm in the real estate business. Now, you're gonna radio show. Win win. Does Lubbock Windass Lubbock have downturn? It doesn't have a downturn. You know, why because of agriculture because a medical because of? Education. And if you don't recognize those facts, then you're blind. And if you're on the right, and you're like, well, we shouldn't have any government will shut Lubbock down the Morrow. If you're on the left anyone say, let's have overreaching government. Then that's not what makes Lubbock work love, it makes government work for it. And that's what you're the other side, Texas where you came up with that idea, right? From the beginning is to represent that new political party per se. Well, west Texas, crat Reese caught that two years ago. Remember? The west Texaco or the weather status Krant. Yeah. Yeah.

"Have on the air with us. John Gibson who is the Lubbock county Democratic Party chairman people take offense to. Democrats being called democratic they to say, the Lubbock county democrat party talked to us about parlance there. I have no idea where that comes from people. Tell me that Rush Limbaugh is the one that started that I'm old enough. I remember the world before Rush Limbaugh. And and back whenever I was in college, the professors would complain about that sort of thing. I don't I really complain that it should be called democratic or democrat both. Okay. Because unlike what a lot of Republicans believe when you go to college, and you're in the political science department. They aren't all raving liberals, you've got conservatives in the political science departments to and I would have conservative professors that would insist that you call it democrat, and I'd have liberal professors, call it democratic you insist on just whatever comes out of my mouth grad democratic I get some of my some people will will correct me at times because I happen to make the mistake of saying. Democrat at times, but democratic Democratic Party. I I don't say democrat party at that sounds kind of silly. I would say Democratic Party. I mean, but it's it's semantic quibbles. I don't I don't get caught up in those kinds of games. Yeah. Okay. So I tried to get you caught up in that game. But you stiff arm there, John Gibson. But you are an attorney sure. Yep. Okay. What do you practice worker's comp? Okay. So guys mostly guys getting injured out in the oilfield. I've got an office. No Desa, and I spent a lot of time out. No Desa, but I love Lubbock. And this is where we raised our family, and this is where I wanna live. But yeah, the injuries the work is out in out in the oilfield. So so, but also you run out of DFW as well from time to time. Yeah, I've got an office in Fort Worth too. So okay. That to say, we don't have just some schlumpy sittin here. You know, it's not like it's not like there's a guy who just ran for Democratic Party chair who doesn't really do anything. I mean, you're an accomplish your accomplished within your profession. I'm. I'm blessed to have good clients that have given me some good cases and had some good success with that. So what's the way forward? John. Are we going to see the Democratic Party because you know, I say this all time we rave on in the program in always say, I'm non adherent. I'm not a devout adherent, I vote Republican, but I'm not a devout adherent to either party. And I think a lot of people listening program. I'm thirty nine people who are younger than me who if we go through and we look at the demographics and who's listening to the podcast. I think it'll show that the not devout adherents either in. I think a lot of people are wondering what this Lubbock county Republican party do. Now, we can critique Beto all day long. But in day moss by less than three points. Does the Lubbock county Democratic Party look that is cute run further to the left. Or run more to the middle. You know, I don't know with respect to the state party. I can tell you that here locally. I think that one of the reasons why I got elected was because I am more of a moderate. And I think that we were elected win. I think June. I think okay. So this is before all the November hullabaloo area. Yeah. But anyway, yeah. Here. Locally the problem that we have is. We've got thirty percent versus seventy percents. I mean, that's just the fact and we can slowly over time road that thirty percent or erode the seventy percent and gain numbers off the thirty percent. But what the Democratic Party here is primarily right now as a watchdog for the Republicans. And so yeah, I want to see my Republican legislators do well because I live in this community. And I like you I'm somebody who believes in the politics of place, and I want my Republican legislators to have success for the south plains. You know, Bob Duncan. I know Bob Duncan. He's a he's a good guy thought he did a really really good job state Senator is pointed at his campaign side. Yeah, you've got you've gotta sign here.

"There's a new the ground is shifting in Texas right now, and it shifting away from a one party system, Texas is synonymous with one party state back whenever it was all democratic and now that it's all Republican. But you're seeing that all Republican begin to recede to road in. So the extreme whenever it was one party in the Republicans were winning statewide races by twenty points. You saw people give in to far-right policy that wasn't necessarily conducive to place. It's not conducive to place in every begin to talk about eliminating or consolidating schools. Number one example in rural Texas, we just went through the state championships. My goodness how many great football programs. We have in outlying areas of Lubbock new deal in shallow water in Abernethy. And then you go up into other places as well. Canadian. These great football programs in those all come from proud school districts, and you cannot talk about consolidation of schools without talking about consolidation towns in that means the end of a place. But the more the Republican party gay into in this being five years ago. Like, there are things I see today that I would never drained that were possible five years ago p so many people shifting position. I don't want to get ahead of myself. But in the media impolitic people begin to shift and come back to the middle to till middle right position. Maybe even a middle left position. And one thing that the rural Texas always fight against his suburban, Texas, at least for the last decade where there is no sense of place. And I don't mean to be ugly. People live in the suburbs and follow the pursuit of happiness, and I get it. But there's not a sense of place. So that property taxes become the predominant issue. And then there are other side issues, but guess what when the suburbs begin to vote democratic then that changes, the dynamics, and that's what happened in Texas. Two thousand eighteen all of a sudden, I'm speaking of an urban conference urban counties event next week with Ross Ramsey. We'll talk about here in a minute in. What I would have said in October, and what I will say in January or totally different because of the composition of what turned out in the suburbs. It changed a lot of the picture. Now, what you've got left in place where it has been one party or the da hard left wing Democrats at run a lot of in involved out at true ideological positioning in Lubbock in in a lot of other places in what guess what they wanna do. Now, they went to go. They wanna to go further lift based upon two thousand eighteen they can't take signs and say, well, maybe if we moderated a little bit we might achieve a win in a lump counting Republican party this one I hear a lot. We ought to be able to carry guns at the courthouse. We'll carry if you not into the Lubbock county courthouse. She know that they're inmates are being shifted from floor. Floor. It'd be crazy for somebody to have a gun accessible to an inmate at anytime. But, but that's a big part of Lubbock county Republican party platform right now, it just shows you how out of touch they really are the terrain shifting a new politics. And I'm telling you watch people who you've watched over the last decade in politics in media and you'll begin to see how they'll begin to shift. But I do think it bodes well for a vet school in that terrain to say guess, we're Republicans won. They won in rural Texas follow the lead. And we'll take you the promised land make a deal with us. That's just some west Texan ISM some prairie populism. As we kick off. Ross Ramsey coming up with us at mystic with us fun program. Head. Some. Jags all star up in this. Yeah. So mild Ma Daggs. Hey, you can follow along the program on air AM, five eighty on line at other side of Texas dot com..

"Tim Collins was able to get that done along with major donations and things like that which is of mazing feet in.

We're talking about the Lubbock expo center and Lubbock county expo center. Excuse me, always say that the wrong way. But it's a classic case of some nebulous. Protected. You don't know their identity who is opposing this. Tony renteria. I know you love hearing your name on air. But why are you such a coward? Why can't you come on in talk about why you're running the organization opposing this? What's your plan? Tony wrench RIA. What do you plan on doing in? Why are you such a big shot? Tony wrench RIA.

You don't want to know a lot. You don't want people to know. Why can't she be more transparent? If you're a part of an accountability group. I don't understand it to me in. This is a problem for the Lubbock county Republican party is that the people who are most involved. It seems to me are the most adamant in campaigns like this. But there's nobody who wants to come on the show nobody who wants to go wait Wilkes his show. My show any other show. They just want to hide behind ads and say, well, it's your tone, your tone is supreme new white guys your tones, the problem your tone in the tax. There's no wonder why.

"Ten thousand dollar loan from Strathern production company, which is an energy company in Roswell New Mexico. That's a long ways from Lubbock. There was a seventeen hundred dollar in-kind contribution from Lubbock. Charles. Quote, unquote, CJ Hargrove presumably to cover the campaigns seventeen hundred dollar yard, son, political expenditure, and then there was an in-kind contribution from Mesa media in Austin for radio and television production while no amount was specified on their campaign. Finance report four Mesa media. A Lubbock county election official says that the contribution amounts to six thousand nine hundred dollars. Now Lubbock tax payers. Four accountability political expenditures were mostly for advertising, and we have the whole campaign finance report there on the website. Now, here's the interesting part. And I said something about this yesterday. But other documents show that the packs treasurer changed on October nineteen that treasurer was Hargrove. And a new treasure was appointed by Hargrove six days later, Tony Renteria who's a big dog on social media, but doesn't like to take questions because who cares about accountability. Right. Tony Renteria you like your name being mentioned on the radio. Bet you do because it's one of the only time you'll hear it Hargrove is the nephew of former Lubbock state Representative Karl is it and Hargrove I'm told step down because he was concerned about quote, unquote. The campaign's tactics Renteria thing just said his name again, who is a very look you got to measure your words because you don't want to sound like a tyrant, but who is a very involved in by very involved. I mean, overly involved. With the Lubbock county. Republican party is also said to be a longtime. Volunteer of is it who held the state office from nineteen ninety seven to two thousand ten on Sunday night. I spoke with Carl is it and asked him if he had any involvement with the pack. He said, no. And Furthermore, they he had no knowledge of who was running the pack. His nephew informer big campaign guy. Is nephew as well. As another guy who helped him in his campaigns Corliss it saying, hey, I don't know anything about who's running that campaign that the that pack. I I don't I don't know who that is which. I think to a lot of people would be breaking news your nephews in them when you're when you're tough lieutenants. And you don't know about it. Okay. So I'll just take you cheer word there. Renteria and Hargrove did not respond to requests for comment on for this story by the time, we publish it today. Renteria I called him on Sunday evening publish this today called Hargrove yesterday. Didn't hear back from either one. Now, like, I said I've raised a question about the rental cars, and what seems to be a prohibition in this will play out in courts. So those folks have answered some hard questions because at this point, it seems to me you've got to. Two candidates up in both our packs. The. The expo people have answered the question, and they've linked some stuff. So that you can go see how they've answered the question within the piece, but the other group Lubbock tax payers, four accountability have not answered the questions, and it seems to me to be that the aforementioned person who has name I will not glorify dignify again on the radio has resisted answering even though he is heading up a pack. That says we're we to be accountable. We want to kill ability. Where's the accountability? And they are not there. And this is my my thought, and you can go to the peace other side of Texas dot com. We've got the full campaign finance report that can be viewed this fella's pack at this point. Because the other guy walked away said he didn't like the tack. Ticks, and by the way, some of you guys at Lubbock county Republican party, you need to understand that the reason that you see dwindling numbers are because guy dufuses like what you've got running this thing in shouldn't tie you to it. But do like this guy run rampant within your your party in your local county counterparty, but. If you're going to say, you want to be accountable men or your four accountability than you need to answer questions. And one of the first questions is this. How does ninety percent of contributions to your pack derive from outside far outside Lubbock county. That's my question to you. Hope you chime in hope you'll also stay with us. We just run ninety second commercial breaks here on the program keeps you involve might bazaar in studio carried a little bit over there..
