    Honolulu Mayor Rick Blackgirdi this week hinted that a mask mandate could be returning to the city, over two years after the start of the Chinese coronavirus pandemic. Speaking to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s “Spotlight” program, the mayor made it clear that he is more than open to reimplementing mask mandates, particularly in light of rising cases of the virus.

    Honolulu (HawaiiNewsNow) -- A Hawaii lab has detected a petroleum product in a water sample collected from the Pearl Harbor-Hickam system -- a worrisome finding that comes as the investigation into the source of the fuel-like odor and oily sheen from the water continues. It’s the first confirmation of what military households and other impacted residents have been reporting for days: That their water smells like fuel and has made them sick. But the results also raise more questions, including how much petroleum is present and what kind it is. Environmental Health Deputy Director Kathleen Ho stressed the results are...

    The New York Times had an unusual red pill moment and actually threw cold water on the hype behind President Joe Biden’s huge $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill signed into law earlier this month. Independent journalist Ralph Vartabedian wrote an eye-opening analysis for The Times critiquing the bill as extremely risky. He cited the major cost escalation problems that plagued one of Honolulu, Hawaii’s infrastructure projects as a case study for how the dilemma with “big infrastructure” is exacerbated when applied nationally. Vartabedian said the “national spending spree fueled” by Biden’s $1.2 trillion bill “carries enormous risks that the projects will...

    Today’s bombshell that won’t get reported by anyone in mainstream media and shockingly few in conservative media comes from the Care Center of Honolulu. The skilled nursing facility houses nearly 150 residents, the vast majority of whom have received their Covid jabs. They are cared for by a staff that is even more prominently vaccinated than their patients. Considering the vulnerable status of the residents, the protocols they employ to prevent spread of infections are as strong as any place in the country. They have been praised by multiple medical organizations for going above and beyond what is required to...

David Ige, speaking at a news conference on Friday afternoon. He added that even when you take the reporting lags into account, the daily average over the last three days is more than 300. Meanwhile, the seven-day average stands at 230. “That is an alarming number of cases. The...

    Honolulu Police Department Chief Susan Ballard said she thought thousands of protesters were at Kapiolani Park on Saturday afternoon — dispatching dozens of officers to a peaceful Aloha Freedom Coalition event where 400-500 gathered at a rally in protest of COVID-19 health restrictions.

Videos posted online show peaceful protesters calling for calm as officers descended. Many became agitated by what appeared to be an unwarranted police presence that escalated to the arrests.

    The state Constitution says emergency proclamations expire after 60 days, but Hawaii now is in its eighth month of lockdown. Groups nationwide have filed lawsuits against the coronavirus emergency orders declared by their governors. Some have been successful. But what about Hawaii, whose governor just yesterday extended his state-of-emergency proclamation by another month, till the end of November? Can Hawaii’s seemingly interminable state lockdown, first ordered in March, ever be overturned in court? The Grassroot Institute webinar held Friday, Oct. 23, discussed the trends of lawsuits across the nation and whether they offer any hope for Hawaii. Our special guests...
