  • Democrats believe Ramirez but stiff-arm Avenatti

    **SNIP** While most Democrats are taking Ramirez’s allegation seriously — if not to the extent they're publicly backed Ford — they’re stopping far short of giving the same treatment to a third, unknown woman tied to the nominee and represented by celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti. Avenatti has tweeted that his client is a “woman with credible information” concerning “the targeting of women with alcohol/drugs” by Kavanaugh and his longtime friend Mark Judge, whom Ford has identified as the third person in the room during her alleged assault. But Democratic senators are treading lightly on the claims from Avenatti, who also...

    The Federalist ^ | September 24, 2018 | David Harsanyi
    Whatever happens to Brett Kavanaugh, Democrats have normalized yet another illiberal position in their pretend crusade to save the Constitution from Donald Trump. “Doesn’t Kavanaugh have the same presumption of innocence as anyone else in America?” CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Democratic Sen. Mazie Hirono this past Sunday. “I put his denial in the context of everything that I know about him in terms of how he approaches his cases,” was her unexpectedly honest answer. Plainly put, Hirono argues that because Kavanaugh—who earned the highest rating from the ABA during his time on the DC appellate court—has a record of originalist...
  • Top Democrat cites Kavanaugh's 'outcome-driven' legal philosophy as reason to deny him due process

    Sen. Mazie Hirono on Sunday suggested that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's "outcome-driven" conservative judicial philosophy directly undermines the credibility of his denials that he sexually assaulted California professor Christine Ford at a house party more than three decades ago. Speaking to CNN's "State of the Union," Hirono, D-Hawaii, called for an independent FBI investigation of Ford's claims, before explaining why the presumption of innocence and due process should not apply to Kavanaugh's case. "I put his denial in the context of everything that I know about him in terms of how he approaches his cases," Hirono told host Jake...

    Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) said the Democrats could keep Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court seat vacant for two years if need be should the nomination fail and should Democrats take the Senate in November. Hirono said if a replacement for Kavanaugh needed to be found, President Trump should nominate a less conservative ideologue, or else be ready for Senate Democrats to keep the court seat vacant until after the 2020 presidential election if they win the chamber in November, according to an interview with Politico Magazine. “I think we’ve had those kinds of vacancies before, and we certainly...

    It took the French Revolution ten years (1789-1799) to go from an idealistic fight for freedom to the one-man rule of Napoleon, but these are fast-moving times and the #MeToo movement has gone from the necessary correction of monsters like Harvey Weinstein to an all-out assault on the rule of law and hatred of the entire male sex in about eighteen months. (Well, it was men who came up with the Magna Carta.) Think I'm exaggerating? How about the nauseating misandry of the senator from Hawaii, Mazie Hirono? Not only, in the eyes of Ms. Hirono, is Brett Kavanaugh automatically...

    In a bid which further delayed a vote on Judge Kavanaugh, Christine Blasey Ford's associates claimed earlier this week that Ford's too afraid to fly to Washington DC from California and instead needs to drive. As ABC News reported on Friday: [L]awyers for Ford are asking the Senate Judiciary Committee to schedule a hearing for her to be heard on Thursday, allowing time for Ford to make the drive from California to Washington D.C. Ford's friend, Kate Devarney, told CNN this week that Ford's fear of flying is directly related to her allegation of assault, and that an airplane is...
  • Expected: Hawaii Files For Ninth Circuit En Banc Ruling On Right To Bear Arms

    On 24 July, 2018, a three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit upheld the right to bear arms outside the home. As expected, the State of Hawaii waited until the last possible day, then filed a petition for the Ninth Circuit to hear the case en banc, that is, by the whole court.Because the Ninth Circuit is so large and awkward [President Trump should break this court up] compared to other circuits, an en banc hearing of the Ninth involves 11 judges chosen at random, out of the 23 or 24 judges (depending on confirmation hearings) on the Ninth Circuit....

    JUST SHUT UP!!!....wow. As the attacks on the credibility of Christine Blasey Ford continue, and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh repeatedly denies the allegations made against him, lawmakers are speaking out. Senator Mazie Hirono, for one, did not mince words. She held men — especially those in government — responsible for the harrowing experience of coming forward with allegations against a powerful man. “Guess who’s perpetuating all of these kinds of actions? It’s the men in this country,” she said at a press conference. “I just want to say to the men in this country: Just shut up and step...

    Senator Mazie Hirono (D., Hawaii) accused the White House Tuesday of “victimizing” Christine Blasey Ford by asking that she testify under oath before the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding her allegation that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers. “The White House is victimizing this person. She has no obligation to appear at a smearing. . . . I want to say to the men of this country: Shut up and just step up and do the right thing,” Hirono told reporters during a press conference on Capitol Hill. The White House has joined Republican lawmakers...

    Senator Mazie Hirono thinks Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is not telling the truth about the sexual assault he allegedly committed as a teenager. She thinks he wasn’t telling the truth to the Judiciary Committee when he claimed not to remember any sexual misconduct by a judge he clerked for who was forced to resign last year after allegations from more than a dozen women. And the Hawaii Democrat says that if she gets to question Kavanaugh in another hearing, she’s going to tell him that the revelations over the weekend—when Christine Blasey Ford came forward to accuse Kavanaugh of...

    t seems that every other day, a Bridezilla meltdown goes viral. Last month, a bride “vented” on Facebook after her guests declined a $1500 donation towards her special day. And today, another bride has some… warped expectations about her wedding. In a viral Facebook post posted to Reddit, a bride has completely slammed her guests for not RSVPing to her $2000 destination wedding in Hawaii. She began by admitting that a $3000 wedding in Thailand might have been too much. But that a $2000 Hawaii destination wedding is “within everyone’s reach”. Except, erm… It’s not.

  • Hawaii Braces for More Rain as Hurricane Olivia Barrels Toward Island

    09/08/2018 2:28:23 PM PDT · by BenLurkin · 11 replies
    “Although it is too early to pinpoint any details with regard to specifics related to potential impacts to the islands, forecast confidence is increasing each day as the guidance remains in very good agreement,” the National Weather Service in Honolulu said. Olivia would be the second tropical system to hit the Hawaiian Islands this year. Hurricane Lane dropped more than 50 inches of rain across the Big Island last month. The storm was the second-wettest tropical system to affect the United States and the wettest tropical system on record in Hawaii, surpassing Hurricane Hiki in 1950. Some rain from Olivia...

    Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) on Thursday tweeted screenshots of documents from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's time in the Bush White House that are stamped "committee confidential." "These are the docs Rs don't want you to see—because they show that Judge Kavanaugh wrongly believes that Native Hawaiian programs are Constitutionally questionable. I defy anyone reading this to be able to conclude that it should be deemed confidential in any way, shape, or form," Hirono said in a tweet. Hirono's tweet includes two pages of an email thread from 2002 about "Treasury testimony on Capital Investment in Indian Country." "I think...

    U.S. Sen. Mazie K.

Given his lengthy record of partisan political activity, I could...

    A hurricane warning has been issued for Oahu as Lane continues to track toward the islands as a massive Category 4 storm. The Big Island and Maui County also remain under a hurricane warning, while Kauai County is under a hurricane watch. Lane was centered about 260 miles south of Kailua-Kona — or 385 miles south-southeast of Honolulu — and has slowed to just 8 mph. Hurricane Lane passed just south of the Big Island on Wednesday morning and is now marching northwest, bringing it "dangerously close" to the island chain as a hurricane Thursday through Saturday. Heavy rains from...

    Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) announced Wednesday that she has cancelled a planned meeting with President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, in light of former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s guilty plea and testimony.In a scathing statement during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing and in a tweet Wednesday morning, Sen. Hirono called President Trump an “unindicted co-conspirator.”“This president who is an unindicted co-conspirator in a criminal matter does not deserve the courtesy of a meeting with his nominee, purposefully selected to protect, as we say in Hawaii, the President’s okole,” she said, employing a crass, colloquial Hawaiian term.“These are not...
