Those that have known me for any period of time know that my belief is that information empowers everyone. Unfiltered information, however unpalatable it might be, is the nexus to prosperity as it shines the light on those trying to hide in darkness. I also believe that we all have our own reality based on our own perceptions. It is our reality and thus it cannot be wrong. We should be allowed to express our perceptions so that others can glean something from them, if they like.

I launched the El Paso News platform hoping to build it as a source of expression for anyone interested in expressing themselves. Very few took up the challenge and I found myself doing all of the expressing. Therefore I’ve decided to make a change.

I am making this platform my personal blog.

I am currently in the precipice of significant changes both professionally and personally. And I have a lot to say. As some of you know, my interests are diverse and cover a range of disciplines. Professionally I am in the technology sector and I am about to launch a very interesting web-based product. Personally, having lived in Europe, Mexico and the US I am always delving into geopolitics and I am always studying history and military strategies.

Therefore I am sure my topics will cover those subjects significantly but you shouldn’t be surprised to find an occasional off topic post as my new personal life begins to take shape. As for changes to this site there won’t be many. I’m withdrawing the stipend offer for writers I made a while back and my focus will move away from El Paso politics to a more global outreach. I will be adding the complete archive of the El Paso Tribune here as many of those topics are still relevant. Other than that, the only other difference will be that the articles will no longer appear on Monday’s, Wednesday’s and Friday’s as they were before. New articles will appear when I feel I have to comment on a topic.

For those that may want a platform to say something, feel free to submit an article and I will consider it for future publication. Either way I’ll let you know of my decision. And now for some “cover my ass” legalese. Feel free to skip to the next paragraph.

Occasionally I may write or make a comment about a product or a company I am currently involved in. First, the comment is my opinion only and is not a release to the public domain. Second, any comments I may make in relation to the financial or wellbeing of any entity I am involved in, is based on forward looking statements and are not meant as an endorsement or a guarantee of future success. I encourage you to look at all regulatory documents for specific information. Finally, the commentary and content is owned by El Paso News Organization, Inc. and any reproduction of the content, other than for commentary purposes, is strictly prohibited.

Without further ado, I welcome you to my rants and raves and I look forward to you challenging me on my notions with your thoughtful comments. The only thing I know for sure is that I may not always be right, but I’m more right than wrong! So start sending them my way. ¡Saludos!

  1. I came across your blog and I was amazed at your courage for speaking to the on-going corruption in El Paso. Can you research our local sorry legal community and their protective powers. The local el paso attorneys running scams on our el paso citizens with full acknowledgment of the courts and the DA’s office. While the Courts and DA’s and police sit on their plump salary the average citizen is questioned when they attempt to seek justice. The corrupt el paso attorneys outnumber any (if there is any) good attorneys we may have. Citizens cannot file a complaint with the Texas Cartel bar because it will be placed in the back burner. It is ashamed that nobody is covering these stories. But than again, you did state that the media is controlled by the elite and that is the truth. The local newspapers and news channels, 9, 4, 14 and 7 are bought and paid for.
