I don't recall these politicos showing up and doing a press event after the Boston Marathon or San Bernardino. You are correct-an opportunity to get their face in the paper and push an agenda. These are the same Democrats that refuse to call this Islamic terrorism. Shameful!

haven't the local yokels read or heard of Israelis being stabbed ? Obviously a nut determined to kill will use anything.

BTW, knives in Israel are still legal.

And your good friend Tolbert was front and center. Betcha David Stout was miffed that Tolbert wormed his way to the front next to Escobar where the cameras could catch his every tisk-tisk, head shaking moment, I'm-such-pious-person moment.

These politicians are huge hypocrites. Using a national tragedy for their own gain shows that their first thought is for themselves and their political careers. Wiles, at least, gave some practical advice. O'Rourke patted himself on the back, Rodriguez attacked the 2nd Amendment, Moody attacked Republicans. There was not one mention of radical Islam.

What should have been a public expression of grief and sympathy for the families turned into a self-promotional, nauseating political ad. I'm ashamed of every politician who stood there and will tell this to their face.

"None of those people are leaders. They are representatives. They represent their constituents. They do not lead them."

Your right but some people like to follow.

There may be confusion on definitions of words like "Leaders" and "Celebrity", one or the other my be loved and the other damned.

What alarmed me and I don't know if it was a Politician or a Celebrity or a retired FBI agent but he was saying something about walking back the First Amendment now and that scares me more than someone coming for my Guns.

Embarrassing. Pathetic . Sad.

I noticed the same thing when I saw the picture on television -- Escobar (who, btw, looked horrible)and then, right in front, Tolbert. Everyone feels horrified about what happened in Orlando. Why do we need to see "those people" holding a press conference? Isn't Tolbert an ex-priest? He should have been in church paying for the families -- or holding a prayer vigil somewhere. What jerks. All of them -- jerks.

DO NOT BLAME ALL DEMOCRATS FOR THIS. TAKE A LOOK AT TRUMP AND HE IS REPUBLICAN. THIS ISSUE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH PARTIES, IT HAS TO DO WITH A TRAGIC EVENT. WHEN ARE WE GOING TO STOP ISIS!!!

SOME OF YOU MIGHT NOT LIKE ESOBAR BUT AT LEAST SHE IS NOT GOING TO PRISON FOR CRIMINAL CHARGES LIKE SOME OTHERS OUT THERE.

Perhaps someone can verify the validity of a report that indicated the county made it mandatory for employees to attend an Orlando ceremony.

If true, that's overstepping authority.

Like the Chicago mayor(Emmanuel) stated never let a crisis go to waste and the Three Stooges ran to the nearest TV camera. The crocodile tears the three shred. Truth is they couldn't care less about gays. It's all about votes. It's no different when cook voted for partner benefits. He voted for the change because his daughter, children and lazy live in boyfriend (now her husband) did not have insurance. He didn't even mention the same sex partners.

Escobar is not in jail yet. We still have not received an answer as to why the hospital members haven't been charged. They voluntarily admitted committing fraud to receive federal funding. Of course the wannabe brown Hillary made calls to a few officials. The reason given is to punish the county for fraud would take money from the. "Children". Never mind the people that could have been eligible for those funds. Not my words, it's paraphrasing the Times report.

However, the denial of facts is not surprising. Although the nut admitted on video he was an ISIS supporter and swore allegiance, his father has been linked to terrorists. The Orlando LBGT organization stated that guns were not the issue, it was the terrorists. The Democrats are still denying that it was not a terrorist plot and blamed guns.

Remember these terrorists threw gays off 30 story buildings. An american woman that hitch hiked thru the Middle East to prove that the men were nit dangerous and were to be trusted. They aren't rapists, crooks etc. Second day there she was raped by the poor misunderstood Muslim men.

If its butt is in the air, it doesn't belong here.

Lupe,

I do not blame all Democrats for the ludicrous, hypocritical event the local politicians held. El Paso is predominately Democrat, even though most El Pasoans are conservative at heart and actually agree with Republicans but won't admit it. Unfortunately, few people in El Paso pay attention anyway. Actually there were probably more people on the stage than in the audience. The politicians were preaching to the choir.

It is important for politicians to know that their BS not only reflects their own lack of intelligence, but that thinking people see through them. If the politicians or their "people" do not read the blogs they are stupid in addition to hypocritical.

PS Lupe, using all caps in your comments is like shouting. No one pays attention after a while.

I'm not sure the Islamic Terrorist was targeting gays. He may have just found an easy target. Nightclub, as in Paris. The day before the shooting, he visited Disney World. I'm sure the nightclub looked like a much easier place to kill people that Disney World.

Abandon: I doubt it the local politicians read this blog. If Tolbert did, he could surely not hold his head up and still keep up his revenge for Gonzales. Someone should forward Tolbert the web address. Maybe he'll get a hint. -- Or then again, maybe he won't. Hatred is Tolbert's strong suit.

"Escobar is not in jail yet. We still have not received an answer as to why the hospital members haven't been charged. They voluntarily admitted committing fraud to receive federal funding."

False Claims Act/Qui Tam lawsuit covers any of this kind of alleging, it has some narrow rules however and it may be too late. Any citizen can file the lawsuit and then get 10percent maybe more of the recovered fraud funds, its been the law since 1863. Very narrow rules however, issues of first discovery etc.

David,
At this event, did Beto really say he wanted to see the Catholic Church forced to perform gay ceremonies & acknowledge gay marriages?

Worried Catholic,

He didn't say "force," but he did indicate he wished they'd attend those types of events and perform gay marriages. I think he really got caught up in the moment and kind of went a direction he probably regrets.

They get the knickers all twisted up over making a public look at me I'm so concerned statement about a terrorist attack in Orlando, but no one has said a word about people dying in vehicle accidents on El Paso roads nearly every single day.

Or am I the only one noticing that the body count is racking up pretty high for the year.
