Report by the Hawaii Republican Assembly
About HIRA: "The Hawaii Republican Assembly (HIRA) is the conservative standard-bearer for Republicans in Hawaii and the leading advocate for conservative solutions in the islands.
"We are not an official arm of the Republican Party of Hawaii (RPH).
"We are the conservative base of the Republican Party and an affiliated chapter of the National Federation of Republican Assemblies."
**** This weekend's one-day GOP state convention in Waipahu had its share of highlights and lowlights. Only 325 delegates out of an eligible 2,000 statewide bothered to show up for the convention. Not exactly a resurgence of Republicanism in the islands or a cause of concern for local Democrats. But, hey, a few dozen more people attended than the previous year and were all treated to some convention memories which will last a lifetime . . .
CLOSET DEMOCRAT FUKUMOTO EXPOSED AND BOOED RIGHT OFF THE STAGE
Probably the single most memorable incident during the convention was when RINO Beth Fukumoto was booed off stage by the overwhelming majority of convention goers. As Civil Beat reported, the progressive (i.e. liberal) GOP leader of all seven Republicans in Hawaii's State House of Representatives decided to allow delegates to ask her questions rather than giving a mundane report about what bills passed during the 2016 legislature.
Either Fukumoto mistakenly committed political suicide with her Q&A format, or this move was her premeditated and sneaky way of manufacturing a final justification for switching parties, as HIRA has previously reported Fukumoto as plotting. During the Q&A, several delegates addressed Fukumoto from microphone stands which her minions hurriedly placed on the convention floor. Virtually all of their questions pertained to her RINO political outlook and her closet Democrat qualities.

Phyllis Schlafly Rallies Supporters Nationwide as She Defends against Internal Coup Led by Her DaughterSubmitted by Guest on Mon, 05/23/2016 - 21:50

Eagle Forum chairman and founder Phyllis Schlafly is mobilizing the grassroots across America, asking them to help her shut down a coup attempt against her, led by several supporters of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), over her decision to back billionaire Donald Trump in the 2016 GOP presidential primary.
Schlafly says in a robo-call sent out to more than 123,000 conservatives nationwide, obtained by Breitbart News:
Hello, this is Phyllis Schlafly, founder and chairman of Eagle Forum. We’ve been fighting for conservative causes and against liberals for so many years. Unfortunately today, I find myself having to fight back against people who have sued Eagle Forum and dragged me into court. I’m fighting to protect what you and I have built over 40 years away from people who want to take over. They’ve even tried to seize Eagle Forum’s bank accounts. It’s very wrong.

Debates over the US government’s foreign and economic policies have recently taken a backseat to the debate over what bathroom transgender individuals should use. The two sides of the debate both believe that government has the legitimate authority to tell private businesses who they should allow to use their facilities. Few on either side of this debate defend the right of private property owners to decide for themselves who may and may not use their bathrooms.
Some say government must be involved in this issue in order to ensure that private businesses do not violate individual rights. Those who make this claim are accepting the idea that rights are no more than a gift from the government that can be revoked at the will and whim of legislators and bureaucrats. This argument turns rights from a shield protecting our liberties into a sword that can and will be used to increase government control of our lives.
Two weeks ago, the Department of Education waded into this debate by threatening to withhold federal funds from schools that do not allow transgender students to use the restroom of their choice. State and local officials around the country have promised to resist the Education Department’s new bathroom rules. However, given how addicted most state and local governments and school boards are to federal funds, it is likely that even most conservative state governments and school boards will eventually adopt the bathroom policies desired by federal bureaucrats.
Many of the conservatives who (correctly) denounce the Obama administration for trying to blackmail local schools either supported or were silent when a so-called conservative administration expanded the federal role in education via No Child Left Behind. These conservatives fail to realize that No Child Left Behind’s testing and other mandates are no different in principle from President Barack Obama’s bathroom mandates. Both use money stolen from the people and sent back to the states to force states to change their policies according to federal commands. Both are equally unconstitutional. Conservatives who want to defend local schools from federal bureaucrats must work to repeal, not reform, the Department of Education.
One positive result from this latest controversy is that it may encourage more parents to homeschool. Homeschooling is a means for parents to provide their children a quality education that meets the children’s needs. Homeschooling allows parents to ensure that their child's education reflects their values and beliefs, not the values and beliefs of federal bureaucrats.
Working with a team of top scholars, I have created my own homeschooling curriculum. My homeschooling curriculum provides students with a rigorous education in history, math, English, and other subjects. The curriculum is designed to benefit both college-bound students and those interested in pursuing other educational or career opportunities.
The curriculum features three tracks: natural sciences/math, social sciences/humanities, and business. Students may also take courses in personal finance and public speaking. The government and history sections of the curriculum emphasize Austrian economics, libertarian political theory, and the history of liberty. Unlike government school, my curriculum never puts ideological indoctrination ahead of education.

From the flyer announcing the screening:
HECO plans to blanket the state with Smart Meters starting next January.
This can affect our health, safety, privacy and electric bill.
Health: A 7 million dollar California government mandated study showed with a 92% certainty that EMFs (the type of radiation produced by smart meters) caused leukemia and an 80% certainty that EMFs caused brain cancer.
The World Health Organization classifies such EMFs as a Class 2B possible carcinogen, the same class as DDT, chloroform and car exhaust.
Safety: There have been thousands of fires worldwide related to smart meters. Faulty installations, old wiring and impact vulnerabilities have been cited. Massive and expensive smart-meter installations have at times been halted because of documented fires. Most smart meters are not UL approved.
Privacy: Smart meters violate privacy. "With smart meters, police will have access to data that might be used to track residents' daily lives and routines inside their homes, including their eating, sleeping and showering habits, what appliances they use, and when and whether they prefer the television to the treadmill, among a host of other details," according to a U.S. Congressional Research Report. Also, the Hawaii Civil Liberties Union has expressed concerns about Fourth Amendment rights violations posed by smart meters.
Electric Bill: Your bill will go up. Hawaiian Electric's $340 million smart-meter project will
be ratepayer funded. Plus, where smart meters have been deployed elsewhere, energy bills have consistently increased, sometimes drastically.
Price increases will be steeper when Time-of-Use pricing goes into effect. We will be charged more for electricity when we need it most.
Come see the movie: Take Back Your Power, a DVD about Smart Meters
Where: Church of the Crossroads

In our ongoing discussion of how our Health Care system (or more aptly-named "Sick Care" system) has been hijacked by those who profit most from it, we interview Dr. Dave Janda this week, who recently and very publicly announced he was walking away from his clinical practice in protest of how poorly the quality-to-cost ratio has dropped in his profession.
Dr. Janda's perspective is informed not just from his years as a practicing surgeon and researcher, but also through his involvement with health initiatives for the Reagan and Bush I administrations, as well as the National Institute of Health. His overall conclusion is that the health system now exists to serves its corporate and administrative owners, to the detriment of patients and practitioners.

At the end of World War II, one of America's top military leaders accurately assessed the shift in the balance of world power which that war had produced and foresaw the enormous danger of communist aggression against the West. Alone among U.S. leaders he warned that America should act immediately, while her supremacy was unchallengeable, to end that danger. Unfortunately, his warning went unheeded, and he was quickly silenced by a convenient "accident" which took his life.
Thirty-two years ago, in the terrible summer of 1945, the U.S. Army had just completed the destruction of Europe and had set up a government of military occupation amid the ruins to rule the starving Germans and deal out victors' justice to the vanquished. General George S. Patton, commander of the U.S. Third Army, became military governor of the greater portion of the American occupation zone of Germany.
It was only in the final days of the war and during his tenure as military governor of Germany -- after he had gotten to know both the Germans and America's "gallant Soviet allies" -- that Patton's understanding of the true situation grew and his opinions changed. In his diary and in many letters to his family, friends, various military colleagues, and government officials, he expressed his new understanding and his apprehensions for the future. His diary and his letters were published in 1974 by the Houghton Mifflin Company under the title The Patton Papers.

For many of us concerned with liberty, the letters “NDAA” have come to symbolize Washington’s ongoing effort to undermine the US Constitution in the pursuit of constant war overseas. It was the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for 2012 that introduced into law the idea that American citizens could be indefinitely detained without warrant or charge if a government bureaucrat decides they had assisted al-Qaeda or “associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States.” No charges, no trial, just disappeared Americans.
The National Defense Authorization bill should be a Congressional mechanism to bind the president to spend national defense money in the way Congress wishes. It is the nuts and bolts of the defense budget and as such is an important oversight tool preventing the imperial executive from treating the military as his own private army. Unfortunately that is no longer the case these days.
Why am I revisiting the NDAA today? Unfortunately since 2012 these bills have passed the House with less and less scrutiny, and this week the House is going to vote on final passage of yet another Defense Authorization, this time for fiscal year 2017. Once again it is a terrible piece of legislation that does great harm to the United States under the guise of protecting the United States.
Unless some last minute changes take place, this latest NDAA will force young women for the first time to register to be drafted into the US military. For the past 36 years, young men have been forced to register with Selective Service when they turn 18 or face felony charges and years in prison. Under a perverted notion of “equality” some people are cheering the idea that this represents an achievement for women. Why cheer when slavery is extended to all? We should be fighting for an end to forced servitude for young men and to prevent it being extended to women.
The argument against a draft should appeal to all: you own your own body. No state has the right to force you to kill or be killed against your will. No state has a claim on your life. We are born with freedoms not granted by the state, but by our creator. Only authoritarians seek to take that away from us.
Along with extending draft registration to women, the latest NDAA expands the neocons’ new “Cold War” with Russia, adding $3.4 billion to put US troops and heavy weapons on Russia’s border because as the bill claims, “Russia presents the greatest threat to our national security.” This NDAA also includes the military slush fund of nearly $60 billion for the president to spend on wars of his choosing without the need to get Congress involved. Despite all the cries that we need to “rebuild the military," this year’s Defense Authorization bill has a higher base expenditure than last year. There have been no cuts in the military. On the contrary: the budget keeps growing.
The Defense Authorization bill should remain notorious. It represents most of what is wrong with Washington. It is welfare for the well-connected defense contractors and warfare on our economy and on the rest of the world. This reckless spending does nothing to defend the United States. It is hastening our total economic collapse.
