Drain the Swamp, Part 2

Aloha Friends. Welcome to part 2 of 2.  Drain the Swamp

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.  I am not here writing for any of my current conservative organizations, nationally or 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.  Read about how and why we are again bankrupt.  Not my site, but past reports at www.willeslee.hawaiideservesbetter.com.

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.

Drain the Swamp, Part 1

There are many strong and energy-filled conservatives and Republicans in Hawaii.  Thank youThe Hawaii Republican Party can be better.

Writing to conservatives & Republicans, mostly in Hawaii, I email rather than blog because this is a (quasi) private discussion. These reports chronicle HRP’s story with enormous amounts data and solutions. My perspective is that of conservative, Republican, former State Party Chairman & RNC member. I am not here writing for any of my current conservative organizations, nationally or in Hawaii. These reports augment what you should hear from HRP, or what you need to research. Ask party leaders to act, or continue to lose. We won’t always agree but we should be informed. Hawaii conservatives should know they are not alone. Please forward this to conservatives or ask to be removed.

To know where you’re going, you have to know where you’ve been.  We’ve provided reports at least monthly for six years.  Not my site, but my reports www.willeslee.hawaiideservesbetter.com.  Read HRP’s ups and downs to understand how we got to this lowest point in modern times.

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.
