Credibility. None. Part Two

Readers’ Comments – Quick Hits – Politics

I don’t necessarily agree with ALL our readers. “She should join the liberal party. We have to get the party moving forward, & start cleaning up the swamp here like President Trump is doing.“  “Rail is the biggest crime in Hawaii history of record that RINO Lingle helped to carry out…. Rail is the Hawaii Democrat Party’s Super Bowl of Corruption!!!“  “I said it before….boot the bitch crook Pine!“  “(Fukumoto) has become a sideshow, only due to our failure to act.“  “Hawaii GOP is actually a social club not a political party. Think about it.  Every now and then they sponsor a money making event and have a wonderful time. Lots of speeches and feeling good.  Cash goes to pay office expenses but no other activity–no positions, no recruiting, no candidate support.  Attend national meetings and return enthusiastic but again no action. It’s all an ego booster for the officers and that’s all.”

Reader Democrats from across the nation are sending Fukumoto postcards asking her to stay in the Republican party.

Reader Some of us Mililani people were polled if we’re ok with Fukumoto turning Democrat.  I said no. It’s dishonest doing it right after an election and that she was only doing it because Joe Souki gave her a taste of vice chairmanship and she likes it.

Reader It’s hard to say which is more nauseating: watching Fukumoto turn her back on the voters who elected her as a Republican or listening to her spew that infantile line of anti-Trump rhetoric.

Reader it is so dishonest of Beth Fukumoto to take advantage of Republicans in Mililani by running as the Republican candidate then after the Legislature starts go and switch parties!!  From your emails, I knew, but the rest of Mililani who thought they were voting for a Republican — it’s a breach of trust!  They could have gone with Marilyn Lee if they wanted a Democrat, not someone who’d lie and pretend to be a Republican just to get a vote!

Reader the most recent gossip going around about Beth’s divorce was that David was gay and she’s bonking Rep. Lee. So, that would explain her hate for Trump since she doesn’t understand a normal, heterosexual alpha male.

Reader I was told that the Democrats deliberately recruit people like Beth to infiltrate the GOP…Eric’s reasoning seemed to be that Miriam seeks puppets, but maybe it’s a combo of the 2 things?

Readers’ Comments – Quick Hits – Campaigns

I don’t necessarily agree with ALL our readers. “Hawaii gop is a joke. The only solution is to abandon Hawaii and move put pf state asap.“  “The first time you mention a name, could you put the first name as well?“ (YES)  “HRP is tacitly providing you with the golden opportunity to constructively share your sentiments with us.“  Former candidate after reading last report of HRP corruption “Whew. Sure glad I answered you honestly before.“ “Interesting insight about the former Rs in office. Could have added those who ran as R but didn’t get elected until ran as D (former Rep Sonson, Sen Espero, etc — both are not local born so they didn’t know to run as D originally).“ “Your detailed descriptions of  problems within the HRP reveal the pettiness which comes from folks who never experienced real fear and therefor concoct all sorts of irrelevant complications because they have lived in luxurious freedom and plenty so long they simply have no concept of what is truly important in this world and this country.“

Reader: Fukumoto’s “difficult to get a job”– she could have gotten work if she had been willing to apply for or take job that required hard work or didn’t have status. Moving here in 2002 from mainland without connections, I had to take jobs as transcriptionist and program coordinator to support my children, for example, because jobs I was trained for with a MS and doctorate weren’t available. My neighbor, an immigrant from Hungary, with a PhD in cellular biology, had to work selling Primerica and as security guard to support her son. We humbled ourselves to take jobs we were overqualified for but we did honest labor and are self-sufficient. Beth just didn’t want to really work?

Reader: My grandfather was a European champion in free pistol and an excellent shot in WWII. Mom as a kid made his bullets and he ordered some of his guns from Smith and Wesson….guns were his entire life; everyday! My mom and I just couldn’t stop laughing at the Mattis quotes.

Reader: Do you know why Gene Ward only served as a Trustee of the East West Center for a year rather than a full term?  The President’s office had explained that he thought it was an honor (you know, his status obsession since he is a failure) and didn’t think he had to contribute to the center financially like all the other Trustees on the Board, so was given the boot.

Reader: The one toilet in HQ is not dirty!  I clean it and the sink regularly. Please retract that remark!  It reflects on me as several people know I clean it. My response: Thank you for helping at HQ, it is important.  Seriously?  Of all the issues for this corrupt HRP, this is what you choose to send me?

Hawaii has it’s first-ever member of the NRA Board of Directors. Based on the results of the 2016 NRA election, last month, I filled the NRA Board vacancy for the remainder of the current term (April 29).  I am running for election to a full term, now as an incumbent. Strong support from friends at HRA, FNRA, and HIRA made this possible. THANK YOU.

YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE THIS, or cry.  As we go to print, follow this. President Trump is sworn in. Honolulu progressives hold a Trump Protest rally with Beth Fukumoto as speaker. Fukumoto and Cynthia Thielen bash Trump to the cheering crowd of abortion-loving snowflakes. HIRA exposes Fukumoto, and puts heat on GOP HQ. Then, HIRA blasts R micro-caucus for unanimously making Fukumoto caucus leader and calls on them to grow some… guts to take Fukumoto out of leadership. HQ is paralyzed, go figure, but micro-caucus “discusses” Fukumoto situation. Ha, discuss. Somehow, hmmm, media is alerted to the caucus meeting. But, turns out the “discussion” is whether to apply a censure to Fukumoto. Seriously? Censure? Bob McDermott, Gene Ward, Andria Tupola, Lauren Cheape, Thielen are worthless. Ever looking for the excuse to bolt, Fukumoto takes her hurt feelings and CB: Fukumoto Bailing.

Readers’ Comments – Quick Hits – Campaigns

I don’t necessarily agree with ALL our readers. “I think corrupt shameless arrogant HRP is very useful – for the Democrat Socialist Demonrats Scumbags.”  “HRP is completely useless. I recommend to start over. Clean The HRP Swamp of Corrupt insane leadership!  It’s time to Clean Hawaii HRP Swamp!  Let us work together to unite the party bring sanity to the State of Hawaii Republican voters…help support HIRA to Clean The Corrupt shameless Useless HRP Leadership!“  “It is frustrating that current leadership at HRP cannot unite, much less do anything else.“  Reader, on Pine “(At NB) I tried to expose her every chance I had; and she would lie to defend herself and attack me and get away with it.  Cedric Gates (D) and her are tight and protect each other and Caldwell (D).  An attack on one is an attack on the other, so they all retaliate and make up democratic bs stories and get away with them.  She is as bad as Hillary and Obama.“  “Time to drain the swamp at GOP Headquarters!“  About Agustin “did you really need to put in the part where someone said “Whoa, another Dem Bitch”?“  “Those GOP leaders entire mission is self-promotion.”  Reader to HQ “It’s frustrating that HRP ..  cannot endorse and campaign for a proven Republican (Slom) who’s received consistently perfect ratings from the ACU.“  “We did it without the Republican Party in Hawaii…Trump is President Elect.“  “Now…we change the Hawaii Republican Party.“  “drain the HRP swamp and either start over with HIRA lead cleanup and vetting of new members or may be faster start brand new party since the Republican Brand has been so damaged by the leaders, is meaningless, and became pathetic in HI.“  Carroll to HIRA “I heard Eric Ryan on the Carroll Cox show and he did a terrific job explaining why the HRP is so defunct!“

Gowan, BI “I feel there has never been a better time to revive and reorganize the Republican Party here in Hawaii. Out with the old, in with the new. The HRP in Honolulu is a complete failure.  Its failures are mirrored here on the Big Island, in West Hawaii.“

Reader, Slom supporter “HRP is blatantly ignoring Sam’s race — I asked the Oahu Chair yesterday if she was planning to devote any phone banking to him, and she rudely dodged the question because they aren’t doing anything. Spoke with Barbara Marumoto today, and she says it’s not just Sam’s race, but that they’re pretty much ignoring all State Legislature races.“

Berg, to HQ: “I will never support Djou or Duke again.  They are the problem along with you at GOP to embrace someone like Pine who endorsed DEM Matt LoPresti over Republican Bryan Jeramiah this go around- she even gave Jeramiah’s opponent $$$$.  Pine also endorsed Caldwell. When you finally kick Pine out of the party, I will your best worker bee cheerleader. You guys at GOP are pathetic“

Party Secretary Ready response “She’s not a Republican, hasn’t been for years“. Does not explain why Ready did NOT speak five months ago when Walden pushed for Pine’s endorsement.  Does explain HIRA’s ‘GOP is infiltrated” as HQ, Djou and Aiona encourage Rs to give to Pine.  She funnels your money to our Dem opponents. HIRA: PINE-HAS-GONE-TO-THE-DARK-SIDE. HQ and MSM won’t touch the story HIRA: Pine Flips Off Hawaii GOP.

HISTORIC HAWAII.  HRP adds to history as the only state, and first in a generation, with NO opposition voice in a legislative body following Slom’s defeat.  Hawaii made history a few years ago when sitting party leader Johanson switched to Democrat.

Meetings – Finances – By the Numbers – Elections

Election.  We have the White House, Senate, House, majority of state houses, majority of state legislatures.  Our message to President-elect Trump “Drain the Swamp, Republicans and Democrats”.  Our message to the Trump-McConnell-Ryan team “Keep Your Promises”.  Yes, we’ll be pissed with both for the next four years, but it is better than the alternative. The economy, jobs, foreign policy, terrorism is why people voted, SCOTUS is what the election was all about: let’s do it right (no pun).   Election day is filled with good news of Republicans winning everywhere, and election night in Hawaii sucks.

Election, Hawaii.  Thank you: candidates, volunteers, donors.  HIRA also thanks you even if HQ does not HIRA: Thank you, candidates.  You didn’t fail, HRP did.  By 10 PM the damage was obvious and HIRA called for the resignation of the HQ’s incompetents:  “While every single GOP challenger went down in flames tonight, we also lost two Republican incumbents – State Senator Sam Slom (SD9) and State Representative Feki Pouha (HD47).“  HRP changes must be made to attempt to restore confidence.  SA saw the same incompetent HQ which gave no support, yet wondered why they lost every challenge AND Slom SA: Hawaii GOP Shrivel Effect “Hawaii Republicans this week continued their slide into near-oblivion on the state political scene.“  Can’t win until the disease is removed HIRA speaks to the election results.  1.4M residents, 750k registered.  58.3 voter turnout, is lower than Hawaii’s record-setting nation’s lowest 2012 61.9%. This follows a record low 38% in the primary. Those 44.5k “new” registered voters yielded only 400 more votes.  Absentee votes (AB and early) continues to rise and exceeded 50%.  Don’t blame voters.  Blame it on the lack of candidates, qualified and not, by your local GOP.

I don’t necessarily agree with ALL our readers. “Vote for Trump/Pence to make America Safe and Great Again.“  Carroll campaign “It has been like pulling teeth to get any kind of press coverage or party support.  This is starting to become ridiculous!”   “Cheape-Matsumoto is pathetic.“  “HQ un-willingness or this case blatant refusal to hold Republican Legislators (Cheape) accountable not only to their constituents, but to the Party.  Just another reason why HRP continues to fail.“  “Boyd Ready the wagon-circler has invested a LOT of ego into HRP during the past decade.  His affliction?  He cannot admit he was duped.“  “this might be historically the most abysmal election year for HRP ever.“  “Ward – while promoting himself month ago HRP full blast about himself, in the end he pretended to be “one party one ohana” good boy by asking all candidates to send him their door piece file. He was promising to use data center to send all to specific districts from HRP HQ on behalf of specific candidates. Good idea but as all “skilled” politicians in our state do – promise everything deliver nothing.“    “Gene Ward is lost, too.”  “Anything Hellreich touches is screwed for all.”

Palcic to HRP “I received the GOP Voters Guide for our district and the Charter amendments guide.  BUT NOT our own Candidate email piece as promised by National Committeeman Ward.  Why the delay? I’ve sent the piece to you and the County Chairman twice.  Why can’t we have the complete list for our district, which might be, what, 1-2% of the total?  What makes our campaign such a great “security risk?”  We are putting forth a Republican message and supporting Republican candidates, as we have since 2004, and deserve better treatment from our own party.“

If you’re reading this in Hawaii, you have one chance to win the Presidential election, and likely win a targeted US Senate race.  In the next three days, call every one of your mainland family, friends and contacts.  Start with battleground states.  Must call, email or text is not good enough.  For Republicans and conservatives, remind them the election is about SCOTUS.  They must vote Trump.  For D friends (ugh) remind them why they should NOT vote Clinton.  You’ve sat out most this cycle.  Trump Hawaii is too little, too late.  We don’t rely on HRP’s corrupt ‘leadership’ to do anything.  Win the Presidency and the Senate.  Get on the phone, please.

I don’t necessarily agree with ALL our readers. “What is the point of even being a Republican in Hawaii? This is so discouraging half of the party is Rhinos the other half sends out constant criticisms of the Rhinos.“  “I have tried to contact Fritz a couple times, but never an answer.  I can’t say it matters because I would expect nothing more than lip service from these guys.“  “it seems whenever self-professing “Republicans” are mad these days and are in a pissing contest, they feel the need to recite their DD-214 or academic CV as if that makes a difference.“  “I cannot campaign for a candidate because there is no one qualified running in Hawaii.“  “The best part is that Trump is loved by all these Hawaii Republicans who used to complain that HIRA, Lee and Ryan were too hard-hitting!!“

Degracia “there is ALWAYS the same pattern to self-declared political alignment when one is a RINO. When first called out for voting the wrong way, they call themselves “moderates.”  When called out over another vote, they call themselves “bipartisan.”  When they persist in voting with Democrats they become “independents” though still carrying an (R) for ballot access, and, if conservative outcry persists, they finish the evolution by doing a press conference to announce they have become Democrats.“
