Bellow is Accusatory and Slanderous in the Hardin County News

In the March 23rd edition of the Hardin County News Bellow once again accuses LISD and their former lawyer for unethical budgetary practices.  The problem?  He doesn't have ANYTHING to back up his accusations.  Even current LISD attorney Curtis Soileau is shocked at the allegations that Bellow makes against former LISD attorney Kenneth Furlow.  As a lifelong friend of Furlow's, Soileau finds Bellow's accusations so absurd that he's not even surprised that Furlow didn't bother issuing a statement to defend himself.  Although Furlow had not been paid for his services for LISD since January of 2006, Soileau explains, "It's not uncommon for attorneys to not charge for some of their services, and the State Bar of Texas encourages attorneys to volunteer and donate at least 50 hours of time to clients" (Miles, 2011). 

A self-proclaimed Christian, Bellow can't imagine someone giving their services freely (I guess he wouldn't), and although Bellow has ZERO proof of any of his allegations, he says, "Obviously there was some arrangement made where he would not be paid and it would be kept secret" (Miles, 2011).  OBVIOUSLY?  Really?  Because there's not a thing in ANY of the public documents that you've demanded or any of the statements made by Furlow, LISD, the school board, or Soileau that would indicate anything OBVIOUS going on.  Bellow, you jump to conclusions, you expect the worst out of people, and you write slanderous statements about those who give their time to the community.  That's very Christian-like of you.  I'm not sure if they taught you this in your schooling at A&M or in your online ministry program, but you can't just demand documents that show a little of this and a little of that, and then DECIDE that there's something illegal going on. And when you write these accusations out in a blog or article, or whatever form of written media you choose, it's called LIBEL.  Learn your laws!  I thought you had a degree in political science?  I know they go over that in class.  Were you in class during that lesson or where you off gallivanting around Lumberton with a clipboard and petition that day?

I notice that there is nothing mentioned on Bellow's Hardin County Conservatives blog regarding this "breaking news story," nor is there anything on his main website.  (A guy with a really big ego can never have too many websites, you know!)  Why aren't you commenting on this one, Bellow?  Did you realize that you look like a total dumbass and decide to shut up for once?

In one of Bellow's latest blog posts regarding his healthcare bill lawsuit he states that he has a full time job.  WHAT is that full time job?  It's not the prison.  He made it clear that he no longer works there, and that's why those men were able to escape.  Had HE been there, he could have kept the community safe by ensuring that all was well at the prison.  I'm surprised he lost his job there.  It sounds like (according to him) that he was the only competent guard they had!

Now Bellow is apparently "interviewing," and yes I use that term so very loosely, people in the community regarding the "liberal Texas media."  Seriously?  Is that your big story to comment on now?  It seems to be that for Bellow at least, anything associated with the truth is deemed "liberal."  From his actions, I would say anyone acting like a paranoid schizophrenic could be deemed "very conservative."  According to Bellow, every action by LISD and the school board is underhanded and "fishy," and no one in the city can be trusted -- except for him of course.

Bellow, shut up!  Just shut up until you actually find something factual to talk about -- it would save room on the front of the Hardin County News for more important things, like what's ACTUALLY happening in the community!

On a side note, since Bellow was such a huge player in the ban on alcohol sales in Lumberton, I wanted to share a quick story.  I, as a Lumberton citizen, drove the eight minutes north to the gas station near the Beaumont Colony subdivision to buy a SIX-PACK of beer.  That's right.  An entire SIX beers because I was having guests over -- surely an amount of alcohol to cause me to spiral into an abyss of alcoholism, child abuse, drug use, and homelessness, as Bellow would claim.  Anyway, while there, inside the store, I saw FOUR fellow Lumberton citizens, all buying beer.  Yes.  Lumbertonians drink beer.  Can you believe it?  Here's my point, however:  in the maybe five minutes that I was in that store, I watched FOUR Lumberton citizens give over $8 in taxes NOT TO THE CITY OF LUMBERTON.  I know $8 doesn't sound like a lot, but this was in about five minutes from only four patrons.  Two of those individuals also bought gas and other items while in the store.  I wonder, throughout the day, or even a week, how much tax revenue Lumberton loses to that one store?  What about the two Shell stations at Tram Road on the opposite end of the city?  Hmmm.  I bet Lumberton could make enough money off alcohol sales tax alone to keep our teachers hired.  Just a thought.

  1. He doesn't respond to any questions or comments raised after he runs his mouth. What an irritating little man. I give him kudos for his misguided attempt at being an involved citizen but making the serious accusations that he does without knowing the truth is just irresponsible and stupid! I wanna know who he is " in cahoots " with on the school board. One of the board members is discussing confidential information which is illegal. In my opinion, the mole needs to be found out and reprimanded. I bet Bellow wouldn't comment on that! What a hypocrite!

  2. Well, in the past, when writing about the alleged "inappropriate" play that was performed at LHS, Bellow mentions a couple board members. I'd be interested to know if these are the two that he's getting his information from. One is up for reelection. Might not be the best time to be associated with Bellow. Here's what Bellow said regarding the play and two Lumberton School Board members:

    "Members of Lumberton School Board, Gene Stewart and Kenny Burkhalter have expressed disgust that this happened and have told me that they WILL be supporting creating new school policy to protect the children of LISD and to prevent this from ever happening again. I am sure the rest of the school board would agree. I applaud these school board members for standing up against this unacceptable behavior."

    You can find more information regarding that story on his Hardin County Conservatives Blog:

  3. Interesting...I actually had someone else in mind but at this point, there is no tellin'.

  4. There is no telling. I don't like the thought that a school board member would be sharing confidential information with someone so volatile and destructive to the community.

  5. David Duke and David Bellow’s Southern Style:

    “We Hate Blacks in the South” Non- Whites in the Republican Party Say . . .

    Bishop L. J. Guillory, Republican For 25 Years

    Sad to report; The New- ‘Republican Party’; “White Racist Men, are Using Bigotry and Elitist Ideals that seem to have Galvanized American White Male Voters.” In Fact: One Texas Republican Party Executive-Committee Member David Bellow is now using the tactics of David Duke, the most recognizable figure of the American Radical Right, a Neo-Nazi, longtime Klan Leader and now International Spokesman for Holocaust denial. Most can remember until David was stopped by the NAACP, ACLU, Southern Poverty Law Center as well as other National Civil Rights Organizations; he had won election to Louisiana’s House of Representatives and once he was even nearly elected Louisiana’s Governor. David Duke also founded an organization: The National Association for the Advancement of White People (NAAWP) – a “Klan without the sheets.” Well, David Bellow is on his way to prove that poor whites without jobs, education, or health benefits will still follow a message of hate and even blindly give their support to a person and party who could care less about them.

    David Bellow, who has talked his way into the Texas Republican Party Executive Committee, only using his National Guard Status and his hate for blacks (President Obama). He was the white racist who used internet blogs to push whites in Jasper, Texas to attack Blacks on The Jasper City Council in order to fire Jasper’s first African American Chief of Police. David Bellow like David Duke is proud he can insight others to hate based on race. David says, he wants to “Take Back America from the Black Man.” In his own words, “I have a passion to stand up and get people excited.” “That is what the Republican Party NEEDS!” “In a time where Republicans are poised to take back America (Thanks to Obama) we must not be complacent. We must be bold and be loud and get people excited and push forward to victory.”

    Jasper, Texas is known for its troubled history when it comes to race. In 1999, the town’s first black highway patrolman, Rodney Pearson, was on the scene when a black man James Byrd, Jr. was dragged to death by three white supremacists. A little more than a decade later Pearson was appointed by the Jasper’s City Council as the First Black Police Chief. The racism he witnessed more than 10 years earlier in Jasper, showed up at his home. He was attacked and fired, proving hate and racism is still very much alive today and working well in the south. Thanks to David Bellow aka Michael David Bellow, Jr., a Texas State Executive Committee Member, who has become the David Duke of the Texas Republican Party. And is allowed by law to disseminate hate all over The State of Texas; but, nowhere more transparent and supported than in East Texas.

    Like David Duke, David Bellow has found a way to write hateful blogs and newsletters to receive the support from those left wing white supremacist who need to see a white male out in front saying the things that mainstream Americans refuse to say, even if some still have those odious bigoted thoughts. It is only a matter of time before this Bigot starts running for Congress like David Duke and if allowed he will be elected in East Texas. Because David believes that all Black people should be re-enslaved or put in prison. David Bellow is a ‘Great supporter of the Lock Them-Up Ideals,’ quickly re-emerging among republicans who have received large donations or employment from the prison industry.

  6. I do not like David Bellow, but I would not recommend having Bishop L J Guillory as a friend of this blog.

    Guillory travels around finding black people who are in trouble. Guillory shows up and acts like an official. He says he is the Ombudsman General. He is a convicted felon and is not even a Bishop. He is a con man He pulls the race card and says the black person is a victim of racism. He is worse that Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton. Guillory showed up in Jasper and said that only white people opposed the Police Chief because he is black. Guillory did not have any facts so he just pulled the race card. He said everyone involved in the Jasper situation including David Bellow was part of the KKK and was the next White Supremacist like David Duke. Bishop L J Guillory said they were racists and and hated all blacks.

    I know this because my sister was part of the group who opposed the police chief in Jasper. Guillory said the same things about her. He said she only wanted white people to get elected or to be in leadership positions.

    David Bellow is a conservative right wing nut, but Bishop L J Guillory is far worse. Guillory is a convicted violent offender and and racist who calls everyone racist.
