One of the most important items to me that a NEW Mayor must PROMISE to do is to conduct some investigations to see if our tax-payer money has found its way into the wrong pockets in the past.
The Council has the power AND OBLIGATION to conduct such Investigations.
Per our City Charter . . .
Section 3.21 Investigation by the Council:
The Council shall have the power to inquire into the conduct of any office, department, agency, officer or employee of the City; to make investigations into municipal affairs and to subpoena witnesses, administer oaths and compel the production of books, papers and other evidence. Failure to obey such subpoena or to produce such books, papers or other evidence as ordered under the provisions of this Section shall constitute a misdemeanor and shall be punishable by a fine to be set by the Council.
I asked Tony Groves about this at TPSG’s Meeting on Thursday, 6/6. He seemed agreeable but it was only when I started to write this that I realized he hadn’t REALLY come out and said he WOULD conduct such investigations if he’s elected.
Earlier, in his “get to know you” speech, he said what he “would have” done if he’d been here before the Mud-Hole deal was approved, etc.
That’s all well and good . . . but he wasn’t here.
NOW what would he do with the Mud-Hole? NOW that he’s running for Mayor?
Will him or Latricia schedule any Public Investigations?
I believe one of them should appoint a Bulldog Committee to attack slight-of-hand shenanigans like this . . . so the Mayor and Council can concentrate on running our City Government . . . but this Committee can not be allowed to run rampant on it’s own. It must be MANAGED by the Mayor and Council . . . on a short leash.
We’ve made mistakes twice in a row on Mayor . . . ARE WE GONNA SIT IDLY BY AND MAKE ANOTHER ONE?
Or . . . are we gonna ask ALL the candidates some tough questions before they’re crowned?

Sandy from San Antonio asked me to add Sheila Hemphill’s name back to my commentaries so those who are trying to do REAL research will get a “fuller picture.”
I’ve done so below.

“You’ve got the guts of a slaughter-house to take on like-minded folks.
“You’ve got the intelligence of a sea urchin.
“You’ve got the Diplomacy skills of a King Cobra.
“Add it all up and you’re a DESPICABLE HUMAN BEING!!
“Is there ANYONE you won’t attack?”
“How do you sleep at night?” LOL.
I just pray that Baby’s Butt is by my head so her infernal snoring doesn’t keep me up all night. But, then, there’s a big problem on the nights she has gas . . . BUT WE MAKE DO! LOL.

Here’s the NEW Silly Council’s first agenda.
WorkShop at 5:30. TODAY!
Meeting at 6:00. TODAY!
6-4-2013 -- 11:18 AM
Since I refuse to give her any FREE advertising while she is on this “Look at Me” Tour . . . Her first and last name will be listed as SH. Her last name will be listed as H. I found her first, maiden, and last names listed a few times during my research so these will be listed as SRH. Edited on 6-6 to add her name back. Sandy from San Antonio requested this so those researching Ms. Hemphill can find something besides the feel-good stories.
I’ve also changed the above on our website because I found her name listed on Google a few times because of our website when doing my research on her.
I was hoping Sheila Hemphill would just agree to stop making the wild and inaccurate claims that SHE or her Smart Meter Obsession was THE reason or reasons we won the election.
Let’s make one fact very, very clear . . . her goofy-as-hell Charter Proposition – Number 27 – ONLY passed because it was on TPSG’s “yellow” sheet.
She rode in on the coattails of the REAL Rebels . . . nothing more.
Here the yellow sheet is . . . along with the vote totals. If the numbers are wrong, blame Jon . . . LOL . . . that’s his chicken-scratching totals written down.
I, along with a few other Rebels, voted against Numero 27 and I PLAN on trying to have it repealed or ixnayed ASAP.
It’ll bankrupt our city and it’s just plain foolish in my Village Idiot mind.
I also HAD the Smart Meter installed in my home!!
So . . . see Loyalists? I’m not afraid of being in the minority and taking on some of my fellow Rebels BUT I’ll bet I can find some converts as I join this Twilight Zone Science debate.
I just don’t believe Sheila Hemphill’s voodoo science. She’s stretched the truth everywhere else, why not with the science?
She’s on this Smart Meter Bandwagon to make money and a name for herself. She’s had her ego inflated . . . now she’s trying to ride it into the stratosphere.
Instead of agreeing to get back on the Reservation of Truth . . . in her reply . . . she either lied again or she’s REALLY delusional and doesn’t pay attention to what’s REALLY happening around her. Perhaps anyone who doubts my version of events should talk to the people she referred me to in her reply. I don’t just throw around people’s names without their approval . . . unless they’re a target as Sheila Hemphill is now.
Here’s my story about Sheila Hemphill.
Early on I met her in her office a few times.
I heard later what was her version of what we talked about . . . which was ALWAYS wrong.
I’ve heard of many, many other stories similar to mine.
Why does she do that?
For self-promotion? To make herself look important? To make money?
All the above is my choice.
As of the time of this commentary . . . I’ve received 19 phone or email replies to my original commentary . . . and 6 to Ms. Hemphill’s reply.
18 of the 19 Rebels agreed with my commentary . . . and the lone one who didn’t, a Rebel I trust as much as anyone, just wanted me to move on – so the ex-Mayor and her friends wouldn’t be able to say “See! We told you so!” LOL.
I humbly disagreed with my friend.
All 6 of the replies to Sheila Hemphill’s reply . . . LOL . . . complained that I was too easy on her.
We should NEVER forget this!!!!!!!!!!!!
We won the election because we’re open to EVERY opinion . . . not because we censor opposing views . . . as the Loyalists did.
We will NEVER agree to be led from the Top - Down again.
It’s okay for reasonable folks to disagree . . . without going postal on each other.
I JUST CAN’T . . . AND WON’T . . . STAND BY WHEN SOMEONE SHOWS ANY DISRESPECT TO OUR SUPPORTERS!!
Or to folks like Jon and Mary Ann Chase, Bill and Deb Neslage, KJ Hallmark, Tom Swearingen, Paulette Savage, Joe Whitehead, Pamela Cantrell, the Steelhammers . . . the list is endless. The TPSG PAC was instrumental in this Revolution but hundreds of other people worked their asses off as well.
Hell, Joe Whitehead and Pamela Cantrell canvassed the voting for days and days. If you wanna talk about a THANKLESS-ASS job . . . that’s it!!
Paulette Savage is a relentless bulldog researcher who’ll chomp the ass off any Politician who stands in her way.
I’VE ALSO GOT A GREAT RESEARCHER!! SHE KNOWS WHO SHE IS!!
They’ve ALL worked long and hard to change how Brady has been run for the past 143 years.
143 DAMN YEARS!!
THE PRAISE IS THEIRS . . . NO ONE ELSE’S!!!!!
I’ve been approached by two Reporters.
One insisted on a quote . . . I offered to set her up with TEN Supporters who I KNEW had done the hard work.
She refused . . . she wanted a quote from me since I was one of the “Rebel Leaders” . . . or that’s what someone told her.
I HUNG UP!!
The other Reporter was sent my way by Jon Chase . . . to do some research for her.
I agreed to help with ONE condition . . . THAT SHE NEVER MENTION MY NAME IN HER ARTICLE!!
She didn’t and we still email each other.
I know all the other Rebel Cheerleaders . . . not “Leaders,” I hope we never use the “Leader” moniker again . . . have done similar things.
I ONLY know of ONE person who has claimed any credit . . . and she was never in the mix in the first damn place. She was never a Rebel Leader or a Cheerleader. She was . . . and still IS . . . her OWN cause.
I DO NOT enjoy doing this but Ms. Hemphill’s continued insistence that EVERY media outlet got it WRONG . . . that she NEVER claimed credit for winning the election . . . just has to be explored and debunked.
Then Our Supporters can be the judges.
They are, after all, our bosses, right?
When did I first talk to Ms. Hemphill?
Remember, when we started on our City Government Jihad . . . LOL . . . I still didn’t know anyone in Brady. I’d been a hermit for over 20 years.
Our initial Supporters had just finished thrashing the School Board.
Wild Bill talked me into joining him and others in taking on the City in September, 2012.
In October or November . . . somewhere around there . . . I started receiving phone calls from Ms. Hemphill. I didn’t know her but I didn’t know squat about the city either so I listened intently. Her suggestions and comments ALWAYS ended with this . . . “Please don’t use my name or tell anyone we’ve talked. I can’t afford to be ASSOCIATED with you.”
Hell, I knew I was making some Big Dog enemies . . . as was my plan . . . LOL . . . so I assumed she was afraid she might lose some business or something.
Then . . . later . . . I heard that she made the same requests from the other Rebel Cheerleaders.
SHE DIDN’T WANT TO BE ASSOCIATED WITH ANY OF US REBELS!!!!!
She even walked out of one TPSG Meeting as soon as they just started TALKING about Recalling Her Highness.
SHE WALKED OUT!!
She didn’t wanna be associated with EVEN the discussions of Recalling Her Highness!
And now she wants to claim the CREDIT for her Recall?
She wrote this in her reply . . . “How ironic you would have written your article at 3:30 today, too bad he didn't talk to John Chase before you went to print. I called John this morning and asked when the next TPSG meeting would be to see if he could take a picture of the group so I could post it on my site to put a face behind the “silver brigade” of the PAC on #4 of the steps necessary to do what we accomplished in Brady regarding 9.004 amendments petitions. Call John.”
I’ve talked to Jon (NO H), Ms. Hemphill. As you’ll learn in a bit . . . I didn’t HAVE to call him as you suggested.
His story seems to differ from yours.
He got the impression you wanted a group photo of the TPSG Members so you could post it on your website as proof that YOU and YOUR Army defeated the Smart Meter Menace and all the other Brady problems that YOU Petitioned the city for. That you wanted the TPSG folks to be the “background” faces of YOUR Movement as you stood before them like a triumphant General Patton.
He, in fact, came over my house after your phone call . . . in the afternoon . . . upset because you would make such a request. He hadn’t read my initial commentary about you until he came over to my house.
I’ve also talked to 4 other TPSG Members . . . all have refused to allow their photos to be put on your website.
You walked out of their Recall Meeting . . . didn’t want to be associated with them . . . AND YOU NOW WANT THEM TO BE YOUR SELF-SERVING PROPS TO PROVE THAT YOU’RE THE QUEEN OF THE POLITICAL WORLD??
You’ve got gonads . . . I’ll give you that.
By the way . . . now that we’re talking about hubris . . . who called the various media outlets that gave you air-time on TV or the Radio . . . or space in their newspapers and on their websites?
YOU DID!! IN YOUR FERVENT MODE OF SELF-PROMOTION!!!!!
Now . . . let’s get to the facts . . . just a few of ‘em.
The items in blue on the research documents are the items I have problems with. If I comment on ‘em . . . as usual . . . my comments are in red.
There won’t be much need for MANY comments. Sheila Hemphill’s pompous words and actions are plain for all to see.
Here’s the first posting that’ll prove her intentions early on. “Step on up . . . Step on up. $20 per household and I’ll take y’all to the promised land.”
Here’s a video and text where Hemphill claims credit for EVERY good deed since ‘ol Chris Columbus settled on our shores. Be sure and check out the video! Just click on the link at the top of the document and it’ll take you to the video . . . you might have to try it a few times before it works. It didn’t work twice for me yesterday and I just tried it again and it didn’t work again. LOL. If you can’t see the video . . . after being patient . . . let me know and I’ll get it for you.
Here’s something I won’t post an article from. Just go read it for yourself. Sheila Hemphill is gonna save the world!!
Next she brought in some folks from the Texas Tribune to trumpet her personal triumphs. She even somehow got the NY Times to reprint this article!! The gal’s self-promotion is endless!
Another wacka-doo article!
Last but certainly not least . . . here’s the most infuriating article and video of all! Please, please check out the video . . . it’ll make you stomach churn like it’s a rising tide in a tsunami! Just copy and paste the link into your browser for the video.
If Sheila Hemphill stops making her outrageous and false claims . . . I’ll stop dogging her.
If not, I’ll stay after her. No matter who my campaign pisses off.
A false-Shaman like her has to be stopped . . .
Especially when she’s cheapening a hard-fought battle won by TRUE Rebels!!

How ironic you would have written your article at 3:30 today, too bad he didn't talk to John Chase before you went to print. I called John this morning and asked when the next TPSG meeting would be to see if he could take a picture of the group so I could post it on my site to put a face behind the “silver brigade” of the PAC on #4 of the steps necessary to do what we accomplished in Brady regarding 9.004 amendments petitions. Call John. I told John that the Alex Jones article was the second time the reporter’s had tried to sensationalize the story and put "single handedly" in the article which are words I have never spoken nor would speak because it's not the truth. If you listen to the interview Alex repeatedly says she and others. I was a random call in regarding the 9.004 petition Amendments to the City Charter to fight Smart Meters. The writer got it wrong. The KLST news got it wrong too when they said "H filed a Writ of Mandamus". I never said that. I called John Chase when that came out too and told many others I never said that and I wouldn’t because it’s not true.
If people had been watching my site, they would have seen from the beginning #4 on the 123 steps that states:
4. Find people of like mind regarding the right of a Citizen of Texas to refuse a product or service they deem harmful to their person, property or privacy. This is a very bi-partisan effort. Need to form a General Political Action Committee (PAC) if spending over $500 on multiple political issues which requires a filing with State of Texas Ethics Commission. If spending over $500 on a single special issue, filing is done at the City Hall or the School District or County Clerk depending on issue. There is no charge for forming a PAC but there are reporting requirements.
TEXAS ETHICS COMMISSION CAMPAIGN FINANCE GUIDE FOR POLITICAL COMMITTEES
I got this information from Tom Swearingen when I discussed with him how crucial this group was for the success of the election. Ask Tom.
I am never given an opportunity to review of any articles that are written before they go to print. I’m not about to ask KLST, the NY Timse or Alex Jones to correct such trivial details when the bigger battle is to teach other communities how we used 9.004 petition in Brady to provide an Opt Out for Smart Meters.
And for the record – the story that is being picked up is because my son and “I” spent 4 days in Austin at Senate Committee and PUC hearings and lobbying Senators to try to get them to pass a state law that would have protected everyone. We were one Senator vote short and it didn’t pass.
So now what options do people have to remove these devices from THEIR HOMES? I daily receive stories of people who are literal tortured by these frequencies in their homes.
Oh but I forgot, it was the “Moula” issue for you about the Smart Meters wasn’t it? From the very beginning, I’ve never wavered that it’s been about the health issues for me, to the point I have sacrificed my time, money, energy and my business to fight for what I know is true.
But for the record, “I” found 9.004 by asking Monte Akers, “I” put together the four 9.004 petitions, “I” circulated these petitions with help of numerous people, “I COULD HAVE NEVER DONE IT BY MYSELF”.
The story line is fighting Smart Meters and using Texas Local Government Code 9.004 and teaching people how to petition and do what “WE“ did.
I will continue this fight utilizing whatever media outlet I am provided.

Piss on Me?
Okay . . . Fine.
I Probably Deserve it!
Piss on Our Supporters?
That Ain’t Cool.
Be Prepared for Village Idiot Hell!!!!
I’ve tried to fire some anonymous shots across SH’s bow . . . but I’m either a poor shot or she’s such a moving target that I haven’t been able to hit her.
Either way . . . she hasn’t gotten the message.
Our Supporters are really, REALLY getting pissed off that she’s either claiming ALL the credit for the May 11th election results . . . or she’s not correcting the talking heads she’s been kowtowing to. Either situation is disrespectful to Our Supporters.
Her self-promotion . . . at the sake of the REAL winners of the election – the Rebel Division of WE THE PEOPLE – is more than this Village Idiot can take any longer.
I realize I’ll probably upset some Rebels with this commentary . . . especially both of her Supporters . . . but I’m just not gonna allow her to show such disrespect to our CORE Supporters any longer!!
They did the work!
They changed a 143 year-old culture with one damn election!!
Ms. Hemphill had as much input into the election results as a mosquito does on a rhino’s ass when a big-game hunter blows the rhino to hell with a cannon.
The Rebel Division of We the People was the Cannon.
Jon Chase is the grandfather of the Rebel Movement . . . he’s been fighting these wars since Moses came down from the mountain.
Bill Neslage provided some much-needed financing and some incisive commentary on the radio.
KJ Hallmark provided her legal background and the steady influence TPSG needed.
I’ve got a BIG MOUTH . . . nothing more . . . and I came on the scene late.
And we were ALL mosquitos as far as the election results were concerned.
We did our best to get out the vote . . . and to convince the Silent Majority that NOW was the time for them to take over.
But we ALL realize that our Supporters were the forces behind us that won the election.
Not one of us has claimed any PERSONAL credit for the results.
If any ONE of us does . . . this Village Idiot will take them on as well. But I know no one will . . . because we’re not in all this for any personal gain.
The above list did far, far more to cheerlead to the masses than Sheila Hemphill did.
She can do what she wants to do with her Smart Meter campaign but if she thinks THAT is what won the election for US . . . she’s delusional.
If her self-promotion doesn’t stop . . . I will point out IN DETAIL how, when, and where she has for damn sure STRETCHED the truth on TV, in the newspapers, online and most every other media function she can get to listen to her.
I’ll also explain IN DETAIL how she didn’t wanna be associated with us Rebels until late in the game.
It’s time for this foolishness to STOP!!
Why am I making a commentary that I suspect will be controversial?
Because I work for We the People . . . and no one else.
SH was a mosquito on a rhino’s ass.
We the People kicked ass and changed 143 years of history!!
THEY’RE THE HEROES!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And they didn’t do it for ANY financial gain.
