From the Diary of a BDS Skeptic

*BDS=Boycott, Divest and Sanction Israel

by Brother Nathanael Kapner

June 12, 2016

DEAR DIARY, TODAY I READ the news that Governor Cuomo of New York is blacklisting groups involved in the BDS movement aimed at Israel.

Along with this, I read that Susan Rice promised Israel it will receive “the single largest military assistance package in American history.”

There’s no justice in this world, and if there is, (like pursuing justice through a BDS effort), the Jews through their patsies (like Cuomo) will kill it.

As far as “American history” is concerned, there’s been no such thing since 1913 when Jews became the country’s central bankers.

Henceforth, America got swallowed into the mouth of “Jewish history” and all that followed has been very good for the Jews but very bad for America.

Some indignant Jew might snap back, “Wrong. World War 2 was bad for the Jews,” pointing to the so-called Holocaust and the so-called six million that were supposedly gassed.

Without arguing about the preposterous number of “6 million” and the absence of proof that a single gas chamber ever existed, I would reply, “World War 2 was very good for the Jews,” pointing to the rise of the Jewish State during the war and its growing power afterward.

Jews know how to use victimization for their benefit, and play the victim card very well.

THE PROBLEM IS that people get excited (and enraged) about the wrong things.

BDS is fine but won’t stop the Israeli beast from swelling or the US government from feeding it.

Doesn’t the ‘indignation’ of the transgender-rights champion, Donna Lieberman, of the New York ACLU, tell us something…

…that Jews will stage displeasure toward some ‘right’ being violated, (like Cuomo violating free expression), but will never fight against some blatant atrocity, (expressly, Israel’s genocide of the Palestinians), and its culpable abettors?

WHICH BRINGS ME to the elections. Both Hillary and Trump are militarists. Both have come out as lovers of IsraHell.

Israel is joined at the hip with the US military: through contracts, intelligence-sharing, a symbiotic development of military technology, and joint military exercises.

It’s a marriage made in hell that no candidate can rend asunder, especially with the one calling for the US-Israel relationship to move to a higher level, and the other calling for a bigger, stronger, more powerful military.

Hillary’s “higher level” will see a lower level of Israel’s misdeeds toward the Palestinians, and Trump’s “stronger military” will see Jews licking their chops to get all they can out of his bloating of the beast.

And so dear diary, I’m becoming a bigger, stronger, more powerful ‘anti-Semite’ than ever.

And my ‘anti-Semitism’ is reaching a higher level than I could have ever dreamed.

Honolulu Charter Commission Votes Down Ballot Proposal Eliminating Neighborhood Boards

The Honolulu Charter Commission subcommittee's proposal to kill Oahu's neighborhood boards by putting the question on the ballot, using manipulative language, was defeated by the Commission yesterday. The subcommittee, also known as the "permitted interaction group," consisted of Honolulu Charter Commission members Pamela Witty-Oakland, Chair; Judge Michael F. Broderick (Ret.); Reginald V. Castanares, Jr.; and Nathan T. Okubo. Witty-Oakland and Broderick were appointed to their positions on the Honolulu Charter Commission by Mayor Kirk Caldwell, while Castanares and Okubo were appointed by the Honolulu City Council, leading one to entertain the reasonable possibility that the mayor and city council might like to see the neighborhood boards gone. The mayor usually has his representative attend the neighborhood board meetings, while the city commissioners customarily attend in person.

The ballot proposal: "Should the City increase citizen participation in the decisions of government through the use of electronic communication, such as television, Internet and email, and eliminate the Neighborhood Board system?"

The city already uses the electronic communication methods mentioned in the proposal. Eliminating neighborhood boards would lead to just the opposite of increased citizen participation.

U.S. Marine Air Support in Dire Straits after Budget Cuts

Hawaii Political Info comment: Does this have anything to do with the Marine helicopter crash off Haleiwa that took 12 lives this past January?

A Marine familiar with Marine Corps Base Hawaii's troubled Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 463, the unit the two helicopters belonged to, said as a whole it was "way, way low" on flight time. The source declined to speculate what may have depleted training opportunities, saying only "they were not flying enough."

The Blaze

April 15, 2016

A majority of Marine Corps aircraft can’t fly, prompting Marine officials to warn that the aviation corps is reaching a “breaking point,” Fox News reported.

Years of airstrikes in Afghanistan, Iraq and battling the Islamic State have taken its toll on the aircraft.

“Quite honestly, it is coming on the backs of our young Marines,” Lt. Col. Matthew “Pablo” Brown, commanding officer of VMFA (AW)-533, a Hornet squadron based at Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort in South Carolina. “They can do it, and they are doing it, but it is certainly not easy.”

Trump and the La Raza Judge

Freedom's Back

by Pat Buchanan

June 7, 2016

Before the lynching of The Donald proceeds, what exactly was it he said about that Hispanic judge?

Stated succinctly, Donald Trump said U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who is presiding over a class-action suit against Trump University, is sticking it to him. And the judge’s bias is likely rooted in the fact that he is of Mexican descent.

Can there be any defense of a statement so horrific?

Just this. First, Trump has a perfect right to be angry about the judge’s rulings and to question his motives. Second, there are grounds for believing Trump is right.

The Hard Truth about Owning a Condo in Hawaii

Honolulu Civil Beat

They’re often the only homes people can afford, but maintenance fees can suddenly explode. Should the state do more for owners?

by Anita Hofschneider

May 16, 2016

When Melinda Salcedo bought her two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo unit at Pearl Ridge Gardens and Tower near Pearl Harbor on the south shore of Oahu a year and a half ago, it was a dream come true.

Finding a place to purchase hadn’t been easy. The cheapest houses for sale cost half a million dollars, far beyond her budget as a single mom and nursing assistant at Queens Hospital.

Even when she found an affordable condo, she had to use some of her retirement savings to cover the $24,000 down payment. But it was worth it. With a monthly mortgage of about $1,250 and maintenance fees set at $539 per month, she could finally raise her two kids in a place of her own.

Hoping to Squelch the Voices of the Neighborhoods

Honolulu Civil Beat

by Ian Lind

A Honolulu Charter Commission subcommittee met behind closed doors, then emerged with proposals to limit or abolish boards and commissions.

The Honolulu Charter Commission commission [sic] is poised to vote on two proposed amendments to the city charter described as enhancing public participation.

But that bit of political doublespeak conceals the reality that the proposals would dismantle important structures providing opportunities for active participation in city government.

After turning down several proposals for strengthening access to public records (concluding there’s no need to “facilitate greater access to public records”) and others calling for improving Honolulu’s system of neighborhood boards, a commission subcommittee made just two recommendations, which are both scheduled to be decided by the commission at its meeting Thursday.

Hawaii Political Info note: The permitted interaction group members, not named in Lind's article, are Honolulu Charter Commission members Pamela Witty-Oakland, Chair; Judge Michael F. Broderick (Ret.); Reginald V. Castanares, Jr.; and Nathan T. Okubo. Witty-Oakland was appointed to her position on the Honolulu Charter Commission by Mayor Kirk Caldwell.

Snowden: U.S. Government Carrying Out Mass Surveillance in Japan

The Japan Times

by Shusuke Murai

June 4, 2016

Edward Snowden, a fugitive and former U.S. National Security Agency contractor who leaked information from the agency in 2013, warned Saturday that all people in Japan are subjected to mass surveillance initiated by the U.S. government.

Snowden lived in Japan from 2009 to 2011. At the time, he was an employee with computer giant Dell Inc. contracted out to the NSA, where he worked on a surveillance program at the U.S.’s Yokota airbase in Fussa, Tokyo.

“They know your … religious faith. They know whom you love. They know whom you care about … This was our job to establish the pattern of life of any individuals,” he said.
