    In an interview last Friday with “Freedom Friday” host Carl Gallups, Obama birth-certificate lead investigator Mike Zullo revealed for the first time that the “Deep State” prevented a federal investigation of his findings, compiled over a 5+-year period, that the “long-form” birth certificate image posted by the Obama White House in 2011 is a “computer-generated forgery.” Virtually unknown in the United States prior to the election of Donald J. Trump last year, the term “Deep State” has now been invoked by some newscasters, journalists and commentators as well as by Trump himself through his Twitter account. Left-leaning news outlets reluctantly...
  • Dem Sen Who Called for Franken to Resign: ‘I Would Love It’ if Trump and Moore Stepped Aside

    On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead,” Mazie Hirono (D-HI), who called for Senator Al Franken (D-MN) to resign, stated she would “love it” if President Trump and Alabama Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore stepped down. Hirono said, “I would love it if both of them stepped aside. Because I have said publicly that President Trump has admitted to being a sexual predator. And as for Roy Moore, the credible allegations of him being a child molester basically should cause both of them to look at themselves and step down. I would love it. But at the same time, you...

  • Medical Marijuana rules being used to confiscate guns in Hawaii

    12/01/2017 7:03:06 AM PST · by rogerantone1 · 22 replies
    While 29 states have legalized medical marijuana in some form, the drug is still illegal under federal law. Some police departments are now selectively enforcing federal law — people can get the medical marijuana, they just can’t own guns. Hawaii requires all medical marijuana users to register in a state-run patient registry and also requires gun owners to register all their weapons with the county police chief.

    The Honolulu Police Department has told legal marijuana users who own guns that they must turn in their weapons within 30 days. In a letter to about 30 medical marijuana card holders on Oahu, the police said “you have 30 days upon receipt of this letter to voluntarily surrender your firearms.” The letter was signed by Susan Ballard, the new chief of police, and dated Nov. 13. “Your medical marijuana use disqualifies you from ownership of firearms and ammunition,” the letter said.
  • Woman wants charge of killing twin in cliff crash dismissed

    A murder charge against a woman accused of deliberately driving off a cliff in Hawaii and killing her identical twin sister should be dismissed because prosecutors misled the grand jury that indicted her, a defense attorney said. Authorities described the 2016 crash as a hair-pulling fight over the steering wheel. The sisters were seen arguing on the narrow, winding Hana Highway on the island of Maui before their SUV plunged 200 feet over a cliff. Anastasia Duval was in the passenger seat and was killed, and her sister Alexandria Duval was arrested. A judge later ordered Alexandria Duval released after...

    The Democratic Party is trying to figure out how it feels about sexual misconduct when the accused party is an elected or prominent Democrat.  After many years of reflexive excuse-making, victim-mocking and wagon-circling on Bill Clinton's behalf, a number of Democrats and liberals are belatedly coming around to the stance that perhaps he should have been run out of office in the late 1990's after all.  Others are forcefully pushing back in his defense, while still others are contorting themselves in order to blame for their own moral confusion and inconsistency on Republican partisanship, or whatever.  Presented with 'The Bill...

    It has been a rough few days for Republicans, who lost big in mayoral and gubernatorial races across the country in Tuesday’s election. But Shirlene Ostrov knows it can be much worse. She is the chairwoman of the Republican Party in Hawaii. The job can be lonely and thankless. Her party is teetering on the edge of extinction here.

    The trip is Donald Trump's first to the Pacific state, which residents fear could be in the firing line of a North Korean missile. Image: Hawaiians fear they may be in the firing line if the war of words escalates Donald Trump will arrive in Hawaii later as the islands step up emergency preparations to deal with a possible nuclear strike from North Korea. The US President is making his first visit to the country's Pacific outpost en route to a critical 12-day swing through Asia. And Hawaiians are growing increasingly nervous that Mr Trump's war of words with Kim...

    There's a popular postcard of Hawaii that shows the blue waters of Waikiki Beach and the famed Diamond Head with the greeting "Aloha" -- a symbol of the open-arms, easygoing way of life touted by the state. But this week, a different image has spread around the islands through fliers and social media. It shows the same picture with a green scoreboard: "Hawaii 3, Trump 0" -- a nod to the state's judicial defeats of the president's travel ban -- under the words, "Wish you weren't here." When President Trump arrives in Honolulu on Friday, he'll be in enemy territory....

    Coast Guard officials told the Associated Press on Monday that the two women had an emergency beacon but never turned it on because they did not fear for their lives. If they had, rescue would have been headed their way in a matter of minutes. The women said Tuesday they did not use the beacon because they never felt they were in immediate danger, yet they have been quoted as saying they did not think they would survive another day, and that they were fearful during a dramatic tiger shark attack that lasted six hours. Furthermore, the pair said they...

    After violating a court order by calling and sending “nasty” text messages to his former girlfriend 144 times, a man was ordered to write 144 compliments about her. “For every nasty thing you said about her, you’re going to say a nice thing,” 2nd Circuit Judge Rhonda Loo told Daren Young. “No repeating words.” Young, 30, was sentenced Friday after he had pleaded no contest to 16 counts of violating an order for protection. He was given credit for about five months he had spent in jail and was placed on two years’ probation. In a court order issued Feb....
  • Volcanic Unrest at Mauna Loa, Earth’s Largest Active Volcano

    Mauna Loa is showing persistent signs of volcanic unrest. Since 2014, increased seismicity and deformation indicate that Mauna Loa, the volcano that dominates more than half of the island of Hawaiʻi, may be building toward its first eruption since 1984. Thousands of residents and key infrastructure are potentially at risk from lava flows, so a critical question is whether the volcano will follow patterns of previous eruptions or return to its now historically unprecedented 33-year slumber. Mauna Loa has erupted 33 times since 1843, an average of one eruption every 5 years [Trusdell, 2012]. Typical of shield-building Hawaiian volcanoes, Mauna...
  • US judge blocks latest Trump travel restrictions to the US from eight countries (This again?)

    A federal judge in Hawaii blocked President Donald Trump's latest bid to impose restrictions on citizens from eight countries entering the United States, which had been set to take effect this week. The open-ended ban, announced last month, targeted people from Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Chad and North Korea, as well as certain government officials from Venezuela. It was the latest version of a policy that had previously targeted six Muslim-majority countries but had been restricted by the Supreme Court. U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson on Tuesday granted Hawaii's request to temporarily block the federal government from enforcing the...

    Hawaii state representative Chris Lee has introduced a bill to guarantee economic security for the state's residents. Amidst fears of technology leading to job automation, Lee's Universal Basic Income (UBI) measure would ensure that that all residents of Hawaii are able to receive a steady income, regardless of their employment status. Prominent billionaire businessmen including Richard Branson, Mark Zuckerberg, and Elon Musk have expressed their support for the bill. "In the modern world, everybody should have the opportunity to work and to thrive. Most countries can afford to make sure that everybody has their basic needs covered," Virgin Group founder...

    A 240-foot salvage ship is on its way to aid in the recovery of a crashed Army UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter and its missing crew west of Kaena Point, a spokesman for the 25th Infantry Division said. The Military Sealift Command-chartered MV HOS Dominator, a submarine support ship, is expected to arrive in the coming days, Lt. Col. Curt Kellogg said Thursday. The ship’s involvement represents a transition from seafloor sonar mapping and camera observation by the Navy using an unmanned underwater vehicle and remotely operated vehicle to actual salvage and recovery. All five crew members from the Hawaii-based Black...

    The total number of crimes reported across Hawaii in 2016 was the lowest since statewide data collection began more than 40 years ago, according to an annual report released Thursday. Some 45,805 crimes were reported statewide last year, a rate of 3,206 offenses per 100,000 residents. That's more than 6 percent below the 2015 report, and 27 percent lower than the crime rate reported in 2007. “The record low crime statistics in 2016 highlight the outstanding work of law enforcement throughout the State and in all four counties," said Doug Chin, Hawaii's attorney general, in a statement that accompanied the...
