Al Gore Misinforms 9,000 on Climate Change at Stan Sheriff Center

Honolulu Civil Beat

By Chad Blair

April 19, 2014

The man who was almost president graced Honolulu with his presence Tuesday and walked us through a "seminar of sustainability."

By turns a university professor, a wry observer, a recovering politician, a joke teller and a Southern preacher, Al Gore fired up an audience of thousands at the Stan Sheriff Center to believe that global warming can be stopped. But it's possible only if each of us does our part.

"Ultimately, we are going to win this thing," he said, one of many statements met with hearty applause.

Ron Paul Group Defies IRS

By Joel Gehrke

April 15, 2014

Ron Paul's nonprofit Campaign for Liberty will fight the Internal Revenue Service's demand that it reveal its donor list to the agency, despite having already been fined for refusing to do so.

"There is no legitimate reason for the IRS to know who donates to Campaign for Liberty," Megan Stiles, the communications director at Campaign for Liberty, told the Washington Examiner in an email on Tuesday. "We believe the First Amendment is on our side as evidenced by cases such as NAACP v. Alabama and International Union UAW v. National Right to Work. Many 501(c)(4) organizations protect the privacy of their donors in the very same way as Campaign for Liberty. For some reason the IRS has now chosen to single out Campaign for Liberty for special attention. We plan to fight this all the way."

Ron Paul suggested that the group will refuse to pay the IRS fine in a fundraising email to supporters about the agency's request for information.

"Paying this outrageous extortionist fine — just to exercise our rights as American citizens to petition our government — may even be cheaper in the short run," he wrote. "But it’ll just embolden an alphabet soup of other federal agencies to come after us." Paul's email said that the rule requiring that 501(c)(4)s list their donors is "rarely enforced."

Gov. Abercrombie Apologizes for Comments about Sen. Inouye Letter

Los Angeles Times

April 15, 2014

Four days after questioning a death-bed letter at the center of Hawaii’s heated U.S. Senate race, Gov. Neil Abercrombie apologized to the widow of its ascribed author, the late Sen. Daniel Inouye, and others he offended. But he stuck to his key assertion Inouye told him the choice of a successor was his alone to make.

"I apologize to the late Sen. Inouye, his wife, Irene, his family, friends, and former staff for the comments I made concerning the letter," Abercrombie said in a statement issued late Monday. "I regret that my comments were interpreted as hurtful and disrespectful to them. That was certainly not my intent. Sen. Inouye was, without a doubt, one of the finest leaders in Hawaii's history, and a mentor to me.”

Under Hawaii law, Abercrombie had the choice of three candidates to succeed Inouye, a fellow Democrat, who died unexpectedly in December 2012. He spurned Inouye’s favored successor, Rep. Colleen Hanabusa, and selected his lieutenant governor, Brian Schatz.

Democrats Making End Run around Constitutional Provision for Electoral College

Hawaii Political Info introduction: Hawaii is among nine states that have passed legislation altering the nature of the Electoral College, which is provided for in the U.S. Constitution. Politico Dick Morris says the movement is making rapid progress in state legislatures nationwide and is partially funded by the Center for Voting and Democracy, a George Soros-funded election group. Soros, one of the wealthiest men in the world, is a Hungarian-born Jew with Wall Street ties who takes great interest in manipulating the political system. The hand-tying of Electoral College delegates by the legislative change is going to make it easier to control and manipulate the presidential election, particularly by foreign interests, such as AIPAC, Israel and China. Founding Father Alexander Hamilton wrote in Federalist Paper #68 that the Electoral College was created to prevent such detrimental influences.

A plan, now stealthily making its way through state legislatures with astonishing speed, would junk the Electoral College and award the presidency to the winner of the popular vote.

The plan involves an Interstate Compact where states would commit to select electors pledged to vote for the national popular vote winner regardless of how their own state voted. When enough states pass this law -- sufficient to cast the Electoral College's majority 270 votes -- it will take effect.

The Electoral College will become a vestigial anachronism.
