Both bills unnecessary. Making HHS a part of NSC is dangerous. Declare a virus a national security issue and government will only repeat the political fiasco we are already experiencing. The homicide bill sounds virtuous (who doesn't have sentiment for victim's families, right?) but it is a waste of taxpayer money given most homicides are NOT unsolved and the vast majority of homicides in the US involve family members or acquaintances of victims. Having to go back forty years to use the Austin example is weak. Almost all mass murders (more than two) are always solved. How much taxpayer money you want spent on the the unsolved gang related murders occurring in our inner cities right now? Law enforcement already pursues solving homicides with the resources it needs. How about ES come up with some better plans to fix the hundreds of potholes on 680 right here in his hometown! They waste no time putting in "Express lanes" to charge you $$$ to drive on your freeway. Move to right a few lanes and chip your teeth when your tire drops in a pot hole! Can I get an Amen?

You will lose subscribers if you persist on the Swalwell stories. He is truly a disgraced politician sleeping with the enemy!

Swallowswell… Yeah…

All of a sudden he’s become compassionate towards victims of crime. He sure as hell didn’t give a damn when American cities were being torched. He and Pelosi called the violence peaceful protests while people were being murdered in Democratic run cities - Seattle, Portland, hello?

The Democrats don’t give a damn. They want control, not an end to violence. Besides, why would anyone trust what Swallowswell has to say? He said he has evidence that proves President Trump was a Russian asset. Yet Swallowswell had a Chinese spy working in his office. What a joke!

This clown was once a deputy district attorney in Alameda County. What a joke - credibility zero.
