5/8/2018 Last Saturday, May 5, the City of Del Rio elected Bruno “Ralphy” Lozano mayor who happens to be a U.S. Air Force veteran…and openly, flamboyantly gay. Ironically, Del Rio has for decades been known as the “Queen City”. Lozano defeated longtime incumbent Mayor Robert Garza 2,128, or 61.54 percent to 1,330, or 38.46 percent, but voter turnout was considered low. Only 3,458 voted for mayor out of a city with a population of 36,000. Garza was viewed as a terrible candidate who ran city council meetings like his own private club. He also was known to berate and disrespect…

2/16/2018 George Soros is pumping money into the Bexar County Democratic DA primary race – Wake up San Antonio and Bexar County! Noted anti-American leftist George Soros has indicated how important the LGBT and Sanctuary Cities movements are to him and his supporters by financially backing progressive/leftist Joe Gonzales for Bexar County district attorney in the Democratic primary. Soros has donated just under $70,000 to back Gonzales in his Democrat primary challenge to Bexar County District Attorney Nicholas LaHood.

2/7/2018 In another quiet effort to create a socialist system in the city of San Antonio, the mayor and city council are preparing to institute a major change in contracting policy which could negatively impact local businesses. The proposal is called the “Labor Peace Agreement” (LPA) will require a private entity to enter into an agreement with a labor organization as a condition of a receiving a city contract. It is yet another example of the lack of transparency by the leftist/liberal city government because this LPA was added to the request for proposal (RFP) without any public hearings or…

2/1/2018 It appears the border is wide open again – The so-called “Trump Effect”, the illegal aliens’ newfound fear of being caught and deported by the new Trump Administration, faded and ended. Legal and policy loopholes at America’s southern border are spurring a renewed influx of illegal migrants. After a steady decline in apprehensions, U.S. Customs and Border Protection reports that arrests are climbing again. It appears the illegal immigration problem is back to square one, with large numbers of illegal aliens pouring across the border and being released by administrative judge. These released illegal aliens very rarely return or…

Cost of Dream Act – The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) says the DREAM Act will cost Americans $26.8 billion over the next decade, and that’s just the beginning. The DREAM Act, which would grant lawful permanent residence to some 3.25 million illegal aliens, is being played as a bargaining chip in negotiations over immigration reforms, but it’s no bargain and it punishes American workers. (Report from Immigration Reform.com) Inconvenient Truth and News Stories – CBS, NBC, Univision and Telemundo conveniently ignored this story of an illegal alien taking 40 people hostage aboard a Chicago-bound Greyhound bus. This is further evidence…


DiGiovanni Resigns Amid a Centro Investigation

Four years ago, Pat DiGiovanni, the former San Antonio Deputy City Manager and soon to be ex-CEO of Centro San Antonio, the public-private partnership that helps oversee downtown, received a “letter of admonition” from the city’s Ethics Review Board for “unknowingly” violating San Antonio’s code of ethics. Today, on Tuesday, November 28, 2017, the Centro board of directors was scheduled to meet to accept the DiGiovanni’s resignation because there is a police investigation within the organization. A Centro staff accountant is being investigated for embezzling $175,000. While DiGiovanni has not been implicated directly in any illegal activity, a source with knowledge of…
