Adam Schiff costing taxpayers millions

I saw on TV today that China is coming back to the bargaining table. A reporter said they were waiting for the Mueller report, but also the political climate in general. Also said they were concerned that President Trump may not get re-elected. Now that he might be re-elected because they see the report is false they are back, conceding on several issues.

So it would seem that if the Democrats had not made such a huge deal about a false report, China would have negotiated in earnest months ago. The whole tariffs issues would possibly be over, or greatly reduced by now as bargaining leverage.

Those tariffs are estimated to cost U.S. taxpayers millions of dollars a day. So thanks Adam Schiff and the Democrats for blowing this up and costing the U.S. taxpayers and the economy every day.

Adam Schiff is her new hero

Thank you, Adam Schiff, for standing up to the bully in the White House. You didn’t stoop to his level. You simply stated the facts and saved the day. You are my hero.

We need more leaders like you.

Community Choice energy a plus

I read with interest the “It is time to revisit Community Choice Energy for the Central Valley” by Al Galvéz (The Bee, March 23). I have heard about Community Choice energy and think the Fresno County Board of Supervisors and the Fresno City Council should be proactive in looking into this opportunity.

I am afflicted with Valley Fever among other health issues, I am mostly housebound, and have to have the AC on during the summer. I am a senior citizen, and know there are others who cannot afford AC due to the high costs of energy bills. I also hear that the city is considering raising rates for sewage and water by July, and most likely we will see energy rate increases by summer.

I keep reading about how there’s no money; well, here’s your solution. Therefore, my question is: Why aren’t they taking Community Choice more seriously? The communities are the ones who seriously suffer and our elected leaders should be looking for solutions instead of ignoring them. Half the state is doing this. Why aren’t we? I say the City Council and supervisors should actively consider Community Choice Energy for us, and the future of our children.

Look up ‘exonerate’ in dictionary

Maybe someone in the White House can locate a dictionary so the staff and D. Trump can know the meaning of the phrase (from Robert Mueller’s report as extracted by William Barr) “... but does not exonerate him.” (Regarding obstruction).
