March, part 2

Aloha Friends.  Welcome to part 2 of 2.

There are many strong and energy-filled conservatives and Republicans in Hawaii.  Thank you.

Writing to conservatives and Republicans, mostly in Hawaii, I email rather than blog because this is a (quasi-) private discussion.  These reports chronicle HRP’s story.  My perspective is that of conservative, former State Party Chairman and RNC member, now with several conservative organizations nationally and in Hawaii.  Hawaii conservatives need to know that they are not alone.  Please forward this to conservatives or let me know to be removed.  Have to know where you’ve been.  Not my site, but past reports at www.hawaiideservesbetter.com

– March 2-5 CPAC, National Harbor www.conservative.org

– March 3 R debate, Detroit

– March 8 Statewide Ted Cruz rally www.tedcruzhawaii.org

– March 10 R debate, Miami

– March 12 AIM 2016 (Air Rifle Champs) kailuadawn@gmail.com

– March 19-20 Great Guns Gun Show, Honolulu

HIRA’s exposure of Saiki and R/H/L corruption shows that HRP needs cleansing.  Fearful R legislators are as culpable as the State Cmte is incompetent.

Readers’ Comments – Party News – Quick Hits

I don’t necessarily agree with ALL our readers.  “The level of ridiculousness is too high for my tastes. I’m going to remain inactive for now….which is looking like forever.“  “This makes me angry over the slipshod way HRP is running.  Most of the people running the show have no clue, and have never participated when things were run well.”  “The people we have running the show have exceptionally awful people skills, to the point of bordering on antisocial personality disorder.  I have to minimize the amount of exposure I have around these people because, the closer you get, the sicker you get.“  “I suggest we make some serious leadership changes in the HI RP. Can’t continue like this. The game is money and the lack of effective & honest leadership. How can these people sleep at nites when their minds are full of corruption & betrayal?“  “You’d think [Fukumoto] would be in the loop to be more proactive instead they pick all the superficial useless issues …“

-Reader  After observing the Legislature for a month, I see no difference between the Rs and Ds.  Some Ds have better manners, more polite staff and are more principled than the Rs.  Hawaii is where a total charlatan can be a big fish in a small pond.  On the Mainland, some of these people in the Hawaii House or Senate, whether Ds or Rs would be waitresses or used car salesmen.  But in Hawaii, they can fool themselves and others into thinking they’ve arrived.

Meetings – Finances – By The Numbers

Caucus meetings.  1/3 of districts held organizing meetings with low, or no turnout.  1/3 more may do so by the end of March.  1/3 won’t do anything and no one will notice.  You have no idea which category is your district.   Welcome to HRP 2016.  HRP doesn’t want people to attend caucus meetings to become state delegates because those delegates will attend state convention and find that we have place-holders for national committeeman & woman, no election plan nor effort, and no Platform.  Districts are two months later in organizing for 2016 elections.  Three months out, vice chair Monahan and ED Tagavilla revealed there is no convention venue.  Now two months and no venue – voter suppression and HQ incompetence.

CNP, San Diego.  Google it if you’re curious.  Gaffney and Ashcroft were the two evening speakers,   Honored to be on a panel with Tony Perkins and Morton Blackwell to discuss national delegates and committees, the national convention and RNC rules.  Considerable discussion of a Scalia replacement.

-R debate, New Hampshire.  Top three are weak – Trump, Cruz, Rubio.  Governors – Bush, Christie, Kasich – do well.  Christie took Rubio to the woodshed.

-R debate, South Carolina.  Just when we didn’t need any more debates, we did.  Winners:  none.  Loser: Carson has become inconsequential.  Not his message, but his candidacy.

-R debate, Houston.  Sparks.  We needed these issues raised four months ago.
