The final tally is in on the $24 million bond floated by Sonora High and it isn’t pretty. Around 40% went to athletic facilities, including the pool and track and field; approximately 35% for building construction and repairs, like the cafeteria and H Building; but a whopping 25% went for “Consultants.” We hope that they were consultants on how to improve test scores and graduation rates and not just on how to inefficiently spend taxpayer money.

This is getting way out of hand. Portland Oregon’s mayor recently ordered Portland PD to stand down and not respond to vicious mobs besieging ICE offices there, refusing the requests of federal officers for help. Calls by the Far Left for the abolition of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency are just plain ridiculous.

The Mayor and his police chief owe these federal officers who are doing their job by upholding the law equal protection under the law.

After President Trump and his economic advisors enacted punitive tariffs on multiple fronts, harming U.S. agri-business and consumers among others, they’re now going to take $12 billion of taxpayer money to bail out the very farmers they hurt.

The Social Security trust fund is running out of money faster than expected with spending now exceeding revenues. The Medicare fund is suspected to run dry in 2026. The number of workers receiving federal disability benefits has more than tripled, to 14 million recipients, since 1990. With an unemployment rate at less than 4%, or what is typically defined as “full employment,” the U.S. needs its immigrant workers to sustain these programs. Legal workers paying payroll taxes. That is a mathematical fact.
