Few things spoke as loudly about political realities in Texas as when the House of Representatives finally achieved quorum Thursday with a sufficient number of Democrats having returned to the Capitol. They immediately adjourned for four days.

Nothing says urgency like leaving town.

One mail in ballots was a problem in Texas. I’ve posted many times, the indictments and folks found guilty duplications of mail in ballots. Also a dem operative in Texas also did a video of voter fraud. So let’s be honest about a topic the facts has denied

Most of the bail recipients come from major urban areas. Most DA’s are minorities as many of the judges and court system. So why are they giving preference to whites and not exercising more fairness? Did the facts look into this?

The facts cannot even attack anyone on bias. This paper on state and national news reporting is so pro dem it’s sad as responsibilities to report balanced news. No mention of Cuomo resignation. No Afghanistan coverage. No coverage of dem mayors and Representative Henry Cueller pleas of border disasters . Why??? Makes Biden look bad

Here’s a fact about the ethnic make up of appellate and trial judges in TX in 2020: https://www.txcourts.gov/media/1449683/judge-profile-sept-2020.pdf.

Most judges are white and that’s by a large percentage. Facts matter.

Mail in ballots were a issue in Texas last election. Dems were indicted and convicted. Any fraud must be addressed. This paper has denied voter fraud for years and they are wrong

Texas will have more liberal voting times opportunities than New York!! Don’t hear the facts complaining about New York

Regarding bail reform. Most bail recipients are from large urban areas. These Da’s are minorities as much of the court and justice system in these areas. Has the facts checked why whites are getting special treatment in the minority run systems?

The facts needs to stop and look the the mirror on news bias accusations. This paper has always been pro dem on national and state news. How about cleaning your act up before pointing fingers at others

Just a few recently. No news on Cuomo resignation. No Afghanistan coverage. Why?? Makes Biden look bad

PJBM626

Excuse duplication. Not sure how that happened

PJBM626

But the DA’s who recommends sentence and conditions are minority and many got elected by Soros money. Also city and county governments are minority. Where is the edict to stop this. The judges usually follow DA recommendations

So the boogeyman Soros was able to get minority DA's elected but not judges? Really?!?! Your statement "City and county governments are minority" makes no sense to me. What are you trying to say? And what do you want stopped? I need tylenol after trying to figure out your points.

An example of DA’s influences in cases even after conviction

City , County , Commissioner's and DA’s have a say laws within their geographical region. City, county laws. DA’s have a say in punishment, legal process , and recommend jail time and holding time. They work hand in hand with judges. So the point you don’t want to get, per Michael’s allegation about people of color theses major urban areas are made up of minority politicians. So maybe the facts can see what they are doing to solve the bail comments he made

I know native you want to blame the judges because they are the bad white boogeyman although many are dems in these urban areas.

Actually I’m just trying to get you to be coherent. You and this claim of a minority run judicial system have me cracking up. Your logic is beyond flawed. And you are the one who always blames the white bogeyman Soros. Bless your heart and have a good day!

Should point out one more time the Emperor has no clothes. It's plain to see Mr. Morris liberal bias on display. First, in every regular session of the Texas Legislature the bodies adjourn almost immediately because they aren't allowed to pass any legislation for 60 days. In this case, an emergency or special session they could have, however because the cowardice democrats broke quorum the bills need to process through committee first. Therefore, they referred the proposed new bills to committee and adjourned. (as usual) Mr. Morris continues to spew democrat talking points on voting rights versus convenience. This bill expands early voting and restricts mail in ballots and voter ID. That's what Texans want. Social media bias? Is there anyone on The Facts editorial board who doesn't or has not worked for Mr. Morris?

PJBM626

Without doubt of Trump we’re in office with this Afghanistan debacle and lies Biden is spinning, the facts would have multiple printings on this. They would print our allies condemning Biden, hi zero planning, the loss of billions in sophisticated arms to terrorist , being shunned by British parliament, Americans being beaten and trapped. But with Biden being a dem NOTHING!!

No current member of the editorial board has ever worked for me and does not now.

That's cute. I run a $200M company and no one works for me either.

Nothing "cute." Editorial board: Yvonne Mintz, publisher; Waylon Smart, Southern Newspapers IT manager; Jennifer Crittenden, business office; Bobbie Greer, retail advertising sales. I supervise none of them.

Managing editor: Oversees and coordinates the publications editorial activities. Are you the managing editor?

Who's being cute now? The editorials are the voice of the newspaper and, in our case, convey the opinions of a diverse group of board members. In no way do they "work for" me. The publisher chairs the editorial board.

Right. I suppose you hold a non paying position and no one there thinks you're the boss. Well, just everyone.

If people can’t get off their behinds and vote per the times they know are available, then that’s their fault. No one else’s. I don’t want to hear the lie folks can’t get out and vote

PJBM626

If the dems are for voting rights ,why are they insistent if Military ballots happen to come in late , you don’t count them. These are from our deployed soldiers many in combat. Why. Because they go repub on high percentage. I don’t hear any cries from the facts on this
