Image: The Chinese government used so-called “struggle sessions” to bring about “cultural” reformation during the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution in China from 1966 to 1976. What is remarkable about this photograph is how similar it appears to the incident when Montgomery County Judge Craig Doyal ordered the arrest of conservative Republican Precinct Chairman Reagan Reed in Conroe on April 24, 2018, rather than permitting Reed to speak against Doyal’s beloved $107 million, 3 mile, TX 240 Tollway, which this newspaper has recently renamed the “Marc Lawrence Davenport Tollroad.” A similar photograph of Doyal’s arrest and removal of Reed from the Commissioners Court appears immediately below.
Conroe, June 25 – The worst disasters in human history have almost always come at the hands of government. The Tuesday, June 26, 2018, 9:30 a.m., Commissioners Court meeting brings its own disasters all of which are man-made.
Liberal politicians and the liberal media always overemphasize disasters that come at the hands of man in order to justify more government, such as regulations put into effect after the April 26, 2010 Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill, which caused 11 deaths and 17 injuries. What ultra-liberal politicians, such as Montgomery County Judge Craig Doyal or Precinct 2 County Commissioner Charlie Riley, should remember is that far more disasters have occurred at the hands of government than any disasters which occurred at the hands of private businesses or individuals throughout history.
The worst disaster in human history (Doyal’s efforts to cut off citizen participation)
During World War Two, Nazi Germany carried out the genocide of Slavic people which led to the death of more than 23.4 million people in German-occupied Russia and Eastern Europe between 1939 and 1945.
The worst matter on the agenda of the Montgomery County Commissioners Court meeting, which thankfully will not lead to any direct deaths, still constitutes a trampling of the Constitutional rights of Montgomery County citizens as well as formalization of upside down government. That agenda item is the proposed “Rules of Procedure” of disgraced lame duck County Judge Craig Doyal, who wishes to limit citizen comments to 1 minute for items not on the agenda and who wishes to formalize his elitist posture that the citizens have nothing whatsoever to do with the business of the Commissioners Court.
Doyal’s dictatorial proposal is his answer to his own terrible actions on April 24, 2018, when Doyal directed Sheriff’s Office Sergeant Billy Jordan to throw private citizen Reagan Reed out of the meeting of the Montgomery County Commissioners Court in order to prevent Reed from speaking against the $95 million, 3 mile, TX 249 Tollway, also known as the Marc Lawrence Davenport Tollroad. Renowned conservative Republican Precinct Chairman Reagan Reed, who is also the Houston correspondent for Empower Texans, rose to make a comment and approached the podium. Doyal angrily pointed at Reed and said, “Have a seat please! You’re not signed up to speak!”
Reed said, “I got here more than 5 minutes early. Your clerk told me I would be allowed to speak.” In the past, Doyal has allowed citizens to speak even if they didn’t sign up to speak at all. In the past two meetings, however, without any written rules or approval from the Commissioners Court, Doyal has created his own rules that citizens must sign up to speak to the Commissioners Court at least by 9:20 a.m. Doyal’s secretary, Sylvia Olszowy, confirmed on video that “we make up the rules however we feel” in a conversation with Republican Precinct Chair Ginger Russell videotaped early Tuesday morning.
Doyal repeated, “If you don’t have a seat, you’ll be removed.” Reed answered, “If you want that to be in the press, come on.”
Precinct 3 County Commissioner James Noack interrupted and said, “You’re breaking your own protocol. You have done this time and time again.”
Doyal hissed, “No, I’m not” similar to the manner in which a 3-year-old might protect a toy he just grabbed from another child on the playground.
Noack responded, “You have let people who have not signed up come and speak. Come on, Judge. The people want to have a voice. Give them one.” The audience overwhelmingly chimed in that Doyal should have allowed Reed, a highly-respected leader of the Republican Party, to speak.
Sheriff’s Sergeant Billy Jordan then pulled Reed out of the Commissioners’ meeting room, arrested Reed, and required Reed to stand outside of the meeting during the entire remainder of the Commissioners Court for almost two hours.
Precinct 2 County Commissioner Charlie Riley laughed while Jordan arrested Reed.
Doyal then made clear that his real intent was to prevent Reed from speaking against the Tollway: “He said the same thing every time he has come. We know what he is going to say.”
Doyal’s proposed Rules of Procedure directly contradicts the public policy of the State of Texas by removing citizens from the top of the organizational structure of the local government.
The Holocaust: killing of 5.1 million Jews at the hands of the German government from 1941 to 1945 (Tollway spending spree)
The genocide of European Jews resulted in 5.1 million deaths from 1941 to 1945. Some families still directly suffer from the German government’s organized killing of families, chemical experimentation on prisoners, and torture of children, women, and men. Obviously, the Holocaust was an example of government at its worst.
While the $107 million, 3 mile, TX 249 Tollway fortunately is nothing close to the Holocaust in terms of number of deaths, there’s also no question that it’s the symbol of Doyal and Riley at their worst. Cronyism, downright corruption, and completely ignoring the will of the people are at their peaks in this tollway project that no one seems to want other than two people: Doyal and Riley.
On Tuesday, Doyal, Riley, and their lawyer spokesman will go on a spending spree:
- $3.4 million for a contract with HDR Engineering that duplicate the $2.1 million project management contract with Halff Associates, Inc., engineers;
- $430,000 for engineering services from Associated Testing Laboratories;
- $430,000 for engineering services for Terracon Consultants;
- $376,000 more paid to an unidentified engineering firm for unidentified additional work;
- $48,500 more paid to lawyer Rich Muller.
These contracts contain pricing which the engineering firms, all of whom are major contributors to the Commissioners Court members, have established. There’s no negotiation. A stupid spend-happy County government is willing to pay whatever these vendors want. It’s not genocide but it’s certainly killing the public disc.
Mao’s Killing of the Landlords, 1947 to 1951 (making taxpayers responsible for “flood control” when it’s the SJRA’s job)
From 1947, the power-hungry Mao Zedong of China ordered the killing of 4.7 million landlords whom he deed as enemies of the people during the Communist land reforms.
Doyal has proposed a formal agreement by the Montgomery County government to take responsibility for providing flood control in Montgomery County, which also happens to be entirely within the Montgomery County watershed. Doyal’s assumption of this responsibility might ultimate destroy the fiscal health of the County government once and for all. By sitting back and allowing the San Jacinto River Authority to shirk its duty “to provide flood control” for 83 years, Doyal and his colleagues on the Commissioners Court have set Montgomery County up to fail. Providing flood control could cost hundreds of millions of dollars, the type of financial commitment the SJRA could afford, but Montgomery County taxpayers cannot.
The County Commissioners Court will destroy landlords, homeowners, and all other real property owners by taking on this massive responsibility which will likely result in the imposition of even higher property taxes.
The Nazis’ killing of Christian Poles during World War Two (spending $4.8 million)
After occupying Poland in 1941, the Nazis killed 2.8 million Christian Poles through 1945.
After liberal Doyal and Riley have occupied the Montgomery County government, they’ve gone on a spending spree that is already beginning to break the backs of Montgomery County taxpayers. Rather than working to eliminate waste, reduce spending, and lower property taxes, Doyal and Riley have pushed every spending program they could find.
One of the first actions the Commissioners Court will take on Tuesday, June 26, will be to approve spending an additional $4,786,959.74. Those expenditures have received no oversight whatsoever. Doyal and Riley don’t care, because they’re spending other people’s money.
Khmer Rouge Killing Fields, 2.17 million, dead, 1975 to 1979 (money for Halff Associates)
Dictator Pol Pot ordered the torture, killing, and burial of over 2.17 million people in the Cambodian Killing Fields. The victims of the ethnic cleansing were primarily political opponents of the Cambodian government.
Lame duck elitist County Judge Craig Doyal whom the voters rejected in the March 6 Republican Primary Election has made clear that killing all semblance of ethics is happily part of Doyal’s portfolio. One of the worst ethical transgressions in which Doyal has actively and repeatedly engaged is his voting for contracts, change orders, and additional money and benefits to Halff Associates, Inc., the engineering firm of Doyal’s best friend and business partner Bobby Jack Adams. Doyal should never vote on any matter involving payments to Halff. Halff set up Doyal’s criminal legal defense fund as well. When Doyal votes to pay Halff, he may as well be voting to write a check to himself.
In the June 26 Commissioners Court meeting, one of Doyal’s first actions will be to approve a $10,080 payment to Halff for engineering services they supposedly provided to Precinct 1 County Commissioner Mike Meador. Ethically, Doyal should recuse himself from the vote. He won’t.
Mao Zedong’s Cultural Revolution from 1966 to 1976; 2 million dead (blind payroll changes)
Through torture and political repression, China’s Mao Zedong killed 2 million political opponents from 1966 to 1976.
On Tuesday, June 26, the Montgomery County Commissioners Court will approve payroll changes throughout the Montgomery County government blindly. It’s entirely unclear what the payroll changes will be. The Commissioners Court will vote to approve them anyway.
Rwanda (Doyal’s EB-5 immigration program)
The genocide of Tutsis and Hulus in Zaire, Rwanda, and Burundi from 1959 to 1997 resulted in the deaths of 1.2 million Tutsis and Hulus.
What an immigration scam Doyal is perpetrating on Montgomery County and the federal government. Doyal loves the EB-5 immigration program, because some of his low-end real estate developer political supporters like the program which helps them bring in foreign money, mostly from China, for real estate development in return for which they receive favored treatment for immigration visas in the United States. The EB-5 immigration program has brought some of the worst elements of the Chinese mob into the United States.
Once again, Doyal is pushing this program to assist in obtaining private development funding for the area around Interstate 45 and Teas Road. This corrupt Obama-era immigration program is one of the worst examples of government sticking its nose into private business when it simply doesn’t belong there.
