    Governors Office Newsroom ^ | June 23 , 2016 | David Ige
    HONOLULU – Gov. David Ige signed SB 2954 (ACT 108) which authorizes county police departments in Hawai‘i to enroll firearms applicants and individuals registering their firearms, in a criminal record monitoring service. The system, also known as the “Rap Back” system, is a service of the Federal Bureau of Investigation that provides continuous criminal record monitoring for authorized government agencies such as law enforcement agencies. The service notifies the agencies when a firearm owner is arrested for a criminal offense anywhere in the country. This will allow county police departments in Hawai‘i to evaluate whether the firearm owner may continue...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- FBI investigators so far have not turned up persuasive evidence that Orlando gunman Omar Mateen was gay or pursuing gay relationships, according to two government officials familiar with the investigation. The FBI began looking into that possibility after media reports last week quoted men as saying that Omar Mateen had reached out to them on gay dating apps and had frequented the gay nightclub where the June 12 massacre took place.

    Add Orlando shooter Omar Mateen to the FBI's Most Protected Terrorist list . Like Ft. Hood's Nidal Hasan and the Boston Marathon’s Tsarnaev brothers, Mateen has joined the protected and privileged class of suspected Muslim terrorists allowed to roam free until they shoot or blow up innocent Americans. Following the Pulse nightclub slaughter, sources confirmed Mateen had been interviewed by the FBI in May of 2013 and May of 2014 concerning his connections to Hezb'allah and al-Qaeda. The FBI was also aware that Mateen had traveled to Saudi Arabia on two separate occasions; made threatening remarks to co-workers; and, two...

But it turns out that in the actual email, Rhodes did not mention the State Department. It read: "We need to resolve this in a way that respects all of the relevant equities, particularly the investigation." Republicans also provided what they said was a quote from an email written by State Department spokesman Victoria Nuland. The Republican version quotes Nuland...

    A brave 13-year-old Ladson (SC) boy fended off two hardened felons who were attempting to break into his house by using his mother’s gun to protect himself while home alone. The boy saw the men breaking into the back of his home, “at which time he feared for his safety” and grabbed his mother’s gun, the document states. He began firing at them, and the Sheriff’s office reported that they returned fire. In a heated shootout, he shot Brown three times, and Bennett drove him to the hospital where he later died. The gray Chevy Sonic they were driving had...

    House Democrats ended their 25-hour sit-in over gun control legislation on Thursday, a protest Speaker Paul D. Ryan labeled a high-profile stunt that undermined the basic institutions of government. Mr. Ryan said he was “not going to allow stunts like this to stop us from carrying out the people’s business.” He added, “This is about a publicity stunt and now a fund-raising scheme.” But on legislative business, it was Mr. Ryan who prevailed. He personally reclaimed control of the House, pounding his gavel and muscling through a major appropriations bill that included funding for combating the Zika virus, without debate.

It’s political correctness run amok and the Obama administration has played a central role in promoting it by caving in to the demands of various Muslim rights groups. In this latest case a Homeland Security Advisory Council is recommending...

But to the people in the FBI and intelligence community, he said, that would be “inconceivable.” “There is going to be a revolt of Watergate proportions if criminal charges do not go forward.”

The measure from Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) would have also extended the government’s authority to conduct surveillance over potential “lone wolf” attackers.

    The campaign against Rule 41 – which will give cops and Feds in America the power to hack people's computers around the world – has kicked up a gear. Leaders of the US House of Representatives and Senate got a letter today urging them to block the rule change before it becomes permanent in December. The proposed legislative tweak, quietly passed by an obscure committee and approved by the Supreme Court in April, would allow a US magistrate judge to grant law enforcement access to any stored data on a computer, phone, or any storage device around the world that...

    A former FBI counter-terrorism agent says lawmakers could make mass murders less likely. “What we need to do is keep the ownership of guns known to the government, so we know who has what,” said security consultant Gamal Abdel-Hafiz. Gamal Abdel-Hafiz is now consulting on a government counter violent extremist project to reduce the threat of homegrown terrorists. In December 2002, ABC News reported accusations by two veteran FBI investigators that Abdel-Hafiz interfered in ongoing terror investigations: Perhaps most astounding of the many mistakes, according to Flessner and an affidavit filed by Wright, is how an FBI agent named Gamal...

The intent is to bring evidence before a federal grand jury to determine whether or not charges will be brought against Salman. As US Attorney General Loretta Lynch said today, federal authorities are going back and looking at all of the contact with Omar Mateen, as well as those around him in order find out if there is anything that was missed.However there is one rather large problem with...

    Following the terror attack in Orlando, the dominant media/political narrative turned to gun control and now-discredited claims of the suspect's mental illness (claims which included gay-baiting).Now, one controversial former FBI agent -- and current consultant to the Obama administration on "countering violent extremism" (CVE) -- is suggesting a national gun registry be created. Such a registry would target millions of law-abiding American citizens. Gamal Abdel-Hafiz, born in Cairo, immigrated to the U.S. in 1990. He recently retired from the FBI after 22 turbulent years at the bureau. Following the Orlando attack, Abdel-Hafiz explained his rationale for creating a national...

A search of their vehicle revealed the weapons cache. The guns seized included long-range weapons as well as handguns. A camouflage helmet with what appeared to be night goggles was also recovered.

The Washington Times reports that “15 percent” of one batch of such emails were “marked classified.” The FBI continues to investigate Clinton and her State Department staff over this issue. Yet on June 13, one day after the terror attack on the Pulse Orlando nightclub left 49 dead, Clinton suggested that people under FBI scrutiny ought not be able to buy firearms. According...

Florida-based Islamic Caliphate field rep Omar Mateen had more red flags flapping than a Chinese military parade, yet as with Ft. Hood psychia-terror-ist Maj. Nidal Hasan, the feds saw no evil, heard no evil, and found no probable cause until it was too late. Afterward, they still can’t get themselves to acknowledge the unbroken connection between the original Islamic mass-murderer, the alleged prophet Mohammed himself, and Mohammedans of today. Nowhere and nobody is safe from Manifest Diversity now. Just when Hispanic trannies thought it was safe...

Authorities placed Mateen on a watch list in May 2013 after coworkers at the Florida courthouse where he was a security guard told authorities he boasted of connections to al Qaeda and other terrorists organizations. He remained on the list for 10 months, and FBI Director James Comey told reporters this week that during that time the agency placed Mateen...

    Citizens should not forfeit their rights if they haven't committed a crime. The massacre at an Orlando LGBT club has predictably provoked the same reaction as past terror attacks: recriminations that authorities should have done more to stop it in advance, accompanied by demands for new police powers to prevent future ones. Blame-assigners immediately pointed to the FBI's investigation of the Orlando shooter, Omar Mateen. "The FBI closed this file because the Obama administration treats radical Islamic threats as common crimes," GOP Sen. Lindsey O. Graham argued on Fox News. "If we kept the file open and we saw what...

    Someone tell me what is up with this freaking administration. The more we hear the more Americans are getting sick to their stomach. How in the hell does the FBI just discard information about a potential threat asking for body armor and spoke in, wait for it, Arabic while he was on the damn phone!!! This is why Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton is not behind bars right now. The FBI has to be working alongside the Obama administration. There's no way high crimes are getting passed over like this if someone didn't have their hands on the pulse. Not only that,...

    Attorney General Loretta Lynch overruled FBI Director James B. Comey on Thursday, saying the Obama administration does support a ban on firearms sales to those on terrorist watch lists. Mr. Comey last year had told Congress that the ban could end up alerting suspected terrorists that they are being investigated, and that could “blow” the cases his agents are trying to build. But his superiors at the Justice Department rejected that, issuing a statement Thursday saying they want to see Congress approve the “no-fly, no-buy” plan Democrats are pursuing. “The amendment gives the Justice Department an important additional tool to...

Well, we have to thank the Obama administration for that. I have a series of stories here that are gonna boggle your the mind. The first is from the French News Agency.

    Four-time presidential candidate Ralph Nader has a bit of advice for Democratic candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders. Stay in the race. In an opinion column run this week in TIME magazine Nader said Sander should ignore cries from the Hillary Clinton campaign that he is playing the spoiler and stay in the race until at least the convention, if not longer: There are still lessons that Sanders can teach the decadent corporate Democrats for whom this 2016 campaign may be their last hurrah. It is called political energy. It is the lack of political energy that explains why the Democratic Party,...
