    KHON2 ^ | July 2, 2024, Updated: July 3, 2024 | Gina Mangieri
    HONOLULU (KHON2) -- Drug cartels from Mexico are operating in Hawaii, making and pushing deadly drugs including methamphetamines and fentanyl. New tougher penalties akin to murder charges are aiming to take them down. Authorities told KHON2 that the big cartels are ramping up business not just south of the border but right here in our island state. The top federal law enforcement official in Hawaii warns of the dangers not just to drug users, but to drug pushers once caught. Authorities have seen a big shift in recent years to Hawaii’s most dangerous drugs methamphetamine and fentanyl especially coming mostly...

    ~A land of legalisms is not the same as a land of law - a vital distinction increasingly lost on Americans of both left and right. Thus, yesterday's Supreme Court decision on "presidential immunity", which was good-ish for Trump, was immediately seized on by Democrats as an opportunity to indulge their kinky and psychologically unhealthy murder fantasies: Sean Davis on X: One of the lawyers for the fake Ukraine impeachment “whistleblower” just called for Biden to imprison his political opponents and then have them killed. There was a lot of this about yesterday - including the penetrating insight that the...

    The Justice Department has presented Boeing with a plea deal after it accused the airplane manufacturer of violating the terms of a 2021 deferred prosecution agreement that was put in place following two 737 Max crashes in 2018 and 2019. The Justice Department told Boeing it could plead guilty or go to trial, people familiar with the talks confirmed to CBS News. The agreement, which was presented to Boeing on Sunday, would have the company plead guilty to the conspiracy charge it originally faced in 2021. In exchange, Boeing would pay a fine and enter a three-year probationary period, the...

    Remember University of Michigan law professor Barb McQuade? She’s a regular “legal analyst” on MSNBC and was but one of many who supported the assertion that Hunter Biden’s laptop was, in her words, “Russia.” Hilariously, she’s written a book titled “Attack from Within: How Disinformation Is Sabotaging America” the description of which reads “We are strategically being pushed apart by disinformation—the deliberate spreading of lies disguised as truth—and it comes at us from all sides.” More hilariously, McQuade (pictured) told Rachel Maddow earlier this year that the United States’ “deep commitment” to the First Amendment means there needs to be...

    The Daily Caller ^ | 06/04/2024 | Julianna Frieman
    Sirius XM’s Megyn Kelly criticized President Joe Biden’s “play for sympathy” over Hunter Biden’s trial for his federal gun charge. Biden released a statement saying that he is “the president” but is also “a dad” who is “so proud” of his son, who faces three felony gun charges brought by special counsel David Weiss. As jury selection kicked off Monday, Kelly ripped into Biden for attempting to “influence” potential jurors. “So now we’ve got President Biden going to Wilmington and actually making a statement like, well on the eve of this trial,” Kelly said. “It’s still inappropriate. It’s not appropriate...

    The Biden administration is doing an end-run around the nation’s immigration laws — by giving migrants work permits in record numbers. Since President Biden took office, more than 3.3 million migrants have been given a Employment Authorization Document (EAD), commonly known as the federal work permit, even though many didn’t even legally have the right to be America. And as of February of this year, pending EAD applications stood at an another 1.4 million. In many cases, migrants are given the right to work before they are even given asylum, a green card or other legal documentation that allows them...

    Florida sheriffs have been making news of late for doing their jobs. I say that not as a commentary on said sheriffs, but as a sad observation that in parts of this country, violent repeat criminals rule the streets. One such Florida sheriff is Lee County's Carmine Marceno, whose hard line on criminals who think they can "play" in his county is crystal clear: My message … is clear. If you think you can deal poison and commit crime, stay clear of Lee County and all the great state of Florida. We're ready, and we will absolutely find you, hunt...

    New Delhi -- Months after admitting in a UK court that its COVID-19 vaccine, which is being sold as Covishield in India, may have a potential rare blood clot side effect known as Thrombosis with Thrombocytopenia Syndrome (TTS), pharma giant AstraZeneca has recalled the jab made in collaboration with Oxford University.

    ATLANTA (AP) — Gov. Brian Kemp signed legislation Tuesday that makes additional changes to Georgia's election laws ahead of the 2024 presidential contest in the battleground state, including defining probable causes for removing voters from the rolls when their eligibility is challenged. Republican activists — fueled by debunked theories of a stolen election — have challenged more than 100,000 voters in the state in recent years. The activists say they are rooting out duplicate records and removing voters who have moved out of state.

    “For my friends, everything; for my enemies, the law.”This philosophy, announced by Brazilian President Getulio Vargas in the 1940s, is no longer just the favored approach of Latin American strongmen. It has become the openly practiced strategy of today’s Democratic machine.Laws that hamper Democrats are ignored. Laws that might be used to hurt Republicans are enforced to — and often well past — the limits of the law.One need look no farther than the absurd circus-clown show trial (one pundit prefers the term “goat rodeo”) in which the state of New York has gone so far in trying to turn...

    Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) signed a series of bills into law Wednesday, including the Georgia Criminal Alien Track and Report Act. Kemp signed the Georgia Criminal Alien Track and Report Act (House Bill 1105), which requires police and sheriff’s departments to identify illegal aliens who commit crimes and detain them for deportation by federal immigration authorities, according to a report by WXIA-TV. The legislation gained momentum after the death of 22-year-old nursing student Laken Riley, who was killed while jogging on University of Georgia’s campus. Notably, the murder suspect in Riley’s case is 26-year-old Venezuelan native Jose Ibarra, who...

    If you are planning a lengthy holiday getaway don’t leave your home unattended: beware the squatters. In some towns in the U.S. if homeowners take a lengthy vacation and squatters move into their home in the interim the intruders may wind up calling it their own “home sweet home.” And “yes,” it’s legal. The issue of squatter rights is not something new; squatters have been around since the first European settlers arrived in America. What is new is the emergence of squatters in growing numbers as a result of the Biden administration’s open borders policy. Texas Senator John Cornyn tells...
