DCCC cuts and runs from HI-01.

    Guess they decided to stop throwing money away, more’s the pity. The DCCC is pulling out of the race to replace ex-Rep. Neil Abercrombie (D-HI), effectively ceding the heavily Dem seat to the GOP as intra-party feuding splits the vote. “The DCCC will not be investing additional resources in the HI-01 (Abercrombie-open) special election. Local Democrats were unable to work out their differences,” DCCC communications | Read More »

    Will the DCCC show moral courage in HI-01?

    Good question, if I do say so myself: The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is re-evaluating whether to continue to spend money in this month’s Hawaii special election, Chairman Chris Van Hollen told POLITICO Thursday. With former Democratic Rep. Ed Case and Democratic state Senate President Colleen Hanabusa splitting the Democratic vote against Republican Honolulu City Councilman Charles Djou, Van Hollen said the committee recognized challenges | Read More »

    Democrats Didn’t Listen to Massachusetts. Let’s Send Them Another Message.

    All eyes are on the House this week as Washington Democratic leadership tries to use obscure and questionable procedures to pass — by hook or by crook — an extremely unpopular health care bill that will become a fiscal disaster for generations to come.  I’m not a naive person by any means, but I’m just astonished at their relentless pursuit of folly. Like the majority | Read More »

    Hawaiian Separatist Bill: HR 2314

    House Chamber, Washington, D.C. February 23, 2010 Mr. Speaker:  It pains me to rise in opposition to the valedictory measure of the gentleman from Hawaii, but I believe this bill strikes at the very foundation of a nation dedicated to equality under law.  It establishes a different set of laws, a different set of rights and a different government for one group of Americans based | Read More »

Neil Abercrombie (D-Hawaii) announced today that he will be resigning from the House next month so he can run for governor, a move that sets the stage for a special election to fill his seat. “I can now set | Read More »

    It’s A Brave New World – Terror Attempt Won’t Be The Last.

    First and foremost I’d like to thank Dee for a dynamite, insightful article. Judging by your responses I’m not the only one who thinks so. Dee will return from time to time with more perspective from across the pond. We have pointed out the horrors associated with the NHS (National Health Service) and the hopelessness of the people trapped in socialism over in Britain, which was | Read More »

    Fee, Fi, Fo, Fumble – Obama’s Nuclear Naïveté Could Spell Disaster.

    Correction to article of Mon 12/21: I incorrectly stated that Americans were barred from travel in Pakistan in 1981. The State Department warned Americans that travel in Pakistan could be dangerous. Pakistan at that time was issuing 30 day visas. I have been unable to determine what national passport Barack Obama was traveling under, although it has been established that he was then living with | Read More »

    Hawaii’s garbage is headed for Washington State……. Really……. Over the open ocean and everything.

    The obvious snark pertaining to the image of a certain current POTUS who shall remain nameless will not emanate from the author of this commentary. http://www.oregonlive.com/business/index.ssf/2009/09/hawaii_trash_headed_for_northw.html Hawaii trash headed for Northwest landfill. A Honolulu spokesman has confirmed that Monday will mark the start of shipping Oahu trash to a landfill on the mainland.

    Taking Down the Birthers

    Leon Wolf has already taken down the birthers by showing the negative political consequences of pushing the vast, bipartisan* conspiracy theory, and of course point by point takedowns of the theories themselves have been published, but today NRO has a good summary up. All at once, the Editors (of NRO or National Review, I don’t know which) take down every aspect of the whole birther | Read More »

    And Then There Were Two

    Virginia Republican Congressman Bob Goodlatte has signed on as a co-sponsor to a measure in Congress that would require presidential candidates to verify their eligibility to hold the highest elected office in the United States. Rep. Bill Posey, R-Fla., filed H.R. 1503, an amendment to the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971.  H.R. 1503 would “require the principal campaign committee of a candidate for election | Read More »

    Hawaii has new “Islam Day”

    State lawmakers signed into law yesterday that formed “Islam Day” in Hawaii.  They just want to “recognize ‘the rich religious, scientific, cultural and artistic contributions’” of Islam.  Does anyone else think this is scary?  Is this the U.S. or England and France.  We’ve seen how well bowing to Islams demands do for those countries in the past.  This was the beginning for them.  Then there were | Read More »
