On top-secret security clearances
What is all that nonsense the leftist ‘know-itall’ talking heads are talking about? President Trump is not violating anybody’s rights and is not against their free speech. In my opinion, anybody leaving government positions who had any kind of security clearance, that privilege (not right) has to be taken away. They have still their First Amendment rights and can say what they want (even unacceptable insults), but they no longer can receive and distribute government secret information. It does not make any sense for these people to have security clearance, no matter who they are. We have enough stolen information leaked and do not need to have formerly trusted government employees to help that along. Anyway, if absolutely necessary, security clearance can be temporarily reinstated. All those ‘”talking heads” accusing President Trump of being a “dictator” have actually no idea what dictators are really all about (otherwise the Democrats turned Socialists would have to revise their idiotic viewpoints).

Dr. Alex Sherriffs said "the two gorillas in the room" are climate change and forest management problems, and we must acknowledge and work together to resolve both of them.
I hope the governing board will give both forest management and climate change the attention and resources they deserve.

The officers on the task force are there to protect the sanitation workers and provide the homeless with a card offering help. The article was correct in all the facts related to the homeless task force and it’s mission.
The sanitation crews clean up tons of garbage and human waste left by encampments and it’s a seven-day-a-week job. Police are there to protect the crews from angry homeless people, collect hypodermic needles and weapons, and hand out the cards with information to provide assistance. Taking away the police officers would put sanitation crews at risk and deny homeless people with valuable information. I wonder if homeless encampments sprang up on City Council members (Esmeralda) Soria and (Oliver) Baines front yards with trash and the stench of urine and feces, who would they call?
