"... there is NOTHING that can’t be reached by the state legislative power. They can correct the manifold violations of every provision of the constitution that occur every day in every state by federal agencies exceeding the scope of the authority granted to them by the states, in the Constitution. The problem has not been that there aren’t plenty of violations to correct. The problem has been that most States are befuddled into thinking that they get run by Washington, D.C. The press tells them this every day.
The Zionist Lobby with its ridiculous “enforcement organizations,” such as the ADL, by misusing the “anti-semite” accusation have made “anti-semite” and “self-hating Jew” badges of moral honor.

Hawaii state senator David Ige (D) is running for governor of Hawaii. The only thing standing in his way is Duke Aiona (R). The race appears close, unless one looks at the dubious Democratic-funded polls, in which case he is appears to be ahead by a comfortable margin.

Matt Taibbi, who joined First Look Media just seven months ago, left the company on Tuesday. His departure—which he describes as a refusal to accept a work reassignment, and the company describes as a resignation—was the culmination of months of contentious disputes with First Look founder Pierre Omidyar, chief operating officer Randy Ching, and president John Temple over the structure and management of Racket, the digital magazine Taibbi was hired to create. Those disputes were exacerbated by a recent complaint from a Racket employee about Taibbi’s behavior as a manager.
The departure of the popular former Rolling Stone writer is a serious setback for First Look in its first year of operations. Last January, Omidyar announced with great fanfare that he would personally invest $250 million in the company to build “a general interest news site that will cover topics ranging from entertainment and sports to business and the economy” incorporating multiple “digital magazines” as well as a “flagship news site.”
One year later, First Look still has only one such magazine, The Intercept.

Defying its own quack advice that the agency has been propagandizing for months, the CDC has now released a document on Ebola that admits the virus can spread through aerosolized droplets. The document, quietly released on the CDC website, also admits Ebola can contaminate surfaces such as doorknobs, causing infections to be spread through indirect means. 
Here's a backup source of the PDF just in case the CDC scrubs it:
In other words, the CDC is now admitting it lied all along and that Natural News was correct from day one when we warned you about indirect transmission routes of the Ebola virus. (The CDC has always insisted it could only spread via "direct contact.")

A side-by-side comparison of state tax structures has ranked Hawaii thirtieth in the nation on its business tax climate, a position that is unchanged from 2013.
The study, which was conducted by the State Tax Foundation, examined five major elements of each state's tax system: Corporate Taxes, Individual Income Taxes, Sales Tax, Unemployment Insurance Tax, and Property Tax. Although a number of states rose or fell in the this year's index due to policy reforms and efforts to improve the state economy and business climate, Hawaii's ranking is unchanged from 2013, reflecting the lack of action in this area over the past year. Hawaii's overall ranking was thirtieth, with its poorest showings in Individual Income Tax (ranked 37) and Unemployment Insurance Tax (ranked 28).
The poor ranking under Individual Income Tax, which accounts for almost one-third of the total score, is especially concerning for those looking to support small business and entrepreneurship in the state. Although it may seem out-of-place in a survey of business tax measures, the individual income tax score is actually an important reflection of how business-friendly the state can be. A number of businesses, including sole proprietorships, S corporations, and partnerships, report their business income via the individual income tax code. In addition, individual income tax also affects the cost of labor and has been demonstrated to shrink the labor pool as people flee to other states with more friendly taxes. One of the best indications of the importance of individual income tax to the overall business climate can be seen in North Carolina, where significant reform of the individual income tax code contributed to the state's jump from 44th in the rankings in 2013 to 16th in this year's report.
"This year's State Tax Ranking reflects the lack of progress in improving the economy by Hawaii's policy makers," stated Keli'i Akina, Ph.D., President of the Grassroot Institute of Hawaii. "While the state maintains high tax rates to support its budget and excessive spending, policies toward small business discourage entrepreneurship, and contribute to the high cost of living and the brain drain. More is at stake here than simply helping businesses. By pursuing tax reforms that foster a healthy business climate, the state will ultimately help all residents of Hawaii with a more reasonable cost of living, lower individual taxes, and lower unemployment rates."
