    On Dec. 7, 1941, the Empire of Japan bombed the U.S. Pacific Fleet which was stationed in Pearl Harbor on the Hawaiian island of Oahu. In addressing Congress the next day, President Roosevelt called it “a date which will live in infamy.” But Roosevelt’s reputation should live in infamy too. The line that Roosevelt enthusiasts and left-wing historians have peddled for so many years is that the attack was a complete surprise. Here’s a sample from The American Pageant, a typical left-wing American history textbook widely used in American high schools: Officials in Washington, having “cracked” the top-secret code of...

    On Dec. 7, 1941, Pearl Harbor was attacked. Three hundred fifty Japanese aircraft sank five American battleships and three destroyers. Four hundred U.S. aircraft were destroyed. Over 4,000 were killed or wounded. Subsequent investigations revealed warnings may have been disregarded, such as Four-Star Admiral H.E. Kimmel’s statement in a 1958 radio interview hosted by Notre Dame Law School Dean Clarence Manion: “General Short and I were not given the information available in Washington and were not informed of the impending attack because it was feared that action in Hawaii might deter the Japanese from making the attack. Our president had...

    A preschool in Hawaii is taking a closer look at its snack policy after three children took sips of Pine-Sol. Officials say a classroom assistant at a Honolulu preschool mistook the household cleaner for apple juice. Paramedics were called to the Kilohana United Methodist Church Preschool to evaluate three girls, ages 4 and 5, on Tuesday morning. Paramedics found no signs of trauma or sickness, and the girls' parents declined to take them to the hospital.

    HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -- Teddy's Bigger Burgers has closed its Mapunapuna location for cleaning and fired an employee after a video posted on social media shows what appears to be a rat being cooked on the eatery's grill. The video was posted on Snapchat several days ago, and subsequently shared with the company. "We are horrified that a former teenage employee would conduct themselves in that way and make such a video of which we are investigating its authenticity," said Teddy's President Richard Stula, in a statement to Hawaii News Now. He said in addition to terminating the employee, Teddy's has...

    U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard has a message for President Donald Trump: “Being Saudi Arabia’s bitch is not ‘America First.’” Gabbard sent the tweet to @realDonaldTrump earlier this morning, ratcheting up criticism of the president’s continued support for the country despite the CIA’s conclusion that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman ordered the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Hey @realdonaldtrump: being Saudi Arabia’s bitch is not “America First.” — Tulsi Gabbard (@TulsiGabbard) November 21, 2018 “If we abandon Saudi Arabia, it would be a terrible mistake,” Trump told reporters outside of the White House Tuesday. “We’re with Saudi Arabia. We’re staying...

    Three Democratic senators on Monday filed a lawsuit in federal court challenging the constitutionality of President Trump’s appointment of Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general. Whitaker was appointed by Trump to lead the Justice Department after Attorney General Jeff Sessions was forced out of the role earlier this month. Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal, Rhode Island Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse and Hawaii Sen. Mazie Hirono filed the complaint against Whitaker in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on Monday. All three issues fiery statements. “Installing Matthew Whitaker so flagrantly defies constitutional law that any viewer of School House Rock...
  • Is Tulsi Gabbard The Latest 2020 Democrat Hopeful?

    Is Rep. Tulsi Gabbard preparing for a run in the 2020 Democrat primary for president? The Hawaiian representative is the first Hindu to serve in Congress and an Iraqi war veteran. She’s also a Bernie Bro anti-war progressive who has even managed to get sideways with Hawaii’s teacher union. That takes some doing for a Democrat to lose the endorsement of a teacher’s union. She was one of just three representatives and the only Democrat who refused to condemn Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad’s genocidal chemical attack on his own people. After the attack, Gabbard traveled to Syria to meet...

    Full title: Sen. Hirono Condemns McConnell Calling Leftist Protestors a 'Mob', Says It 'Dangerously Underestimates' Them Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) slammed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) Thursday for using the word “mob” in reference to left-wing protestors that have been targeting GOP lawmakers over the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. “It is the richest of ironies that the majority leader has taken to calling those opposed to the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh a mob when several nights a month the president whips his supporters into a frenzy to attack his target of choice,” she said in a...

    Democratic U.S. Sen. Mazie Hirono says she was disappointed by recent comments Sen. Lindsey Graham made on Fox News, in which he sharply criticized her role in the confirmation hearings of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Hirono said that she had been able to work with Graham on bipartisan issues in the past. “I do think Lindsey is channeling Trump to a great extent,” Hirono told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser on Tuesday. “I’m very disappointed because I worked with Lindsey on immigration issues and other issues … Frankly, it is so outrageous; it just shows that they will say anything to...

    So far, the Senate has managed to keep the FBI report on their supplemental background check of Brett Kavanaugh from leaking. Who knew Washington could keep a secret? Late last night, however, Senate Judiciary chair Chuck Grassley released the report’s executive summary, which only took one page to write. Their conclusion was even more terse: INBOX: Sen. Grassley just emailed an executive summary of the FBI investigation report. It's concise enough to fit in one screenshot. pic.twitter.com/Ubuk3xaANk— Steven Mazie (@stevenmazie) October 5, 2018 The Supplemental Background Investigation confirms what the Senate Judiciary Committee concluded after its investigation: there is...

    “He’s going to be on the Supreme Court with a huge taint and a big asterisk after his name,” said Ms. Hirono on ABC’s “This Week.” “The partisanship that he showed was astounding.” Ms. Hirono, a prominent Kavanaugh critic, made the rounds on the Sunday shows blasting Republicans for their support of President Trump’s nominee, in particular Sen. Susan Collins, Maine Republican. . . . Ms. Hirono called her explanation “insulting.” “To say that she thinks that Dr. Ford thinks that she was assaulted, what is that? Is she mistaken?” asked Ms. Hirono.

    Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins -- a key swing-vote whose dramatic floor speech on Friday assured Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court -- revealed on Sunday that she initially thought Kavanaugh "perhaps needed to withdraw" after she heard Christine Blasey Ford's "very compelling and painful" testimony. But then, Collins said, "When [Kavanaugh] came back with a forceful denial, the anger and anguish he showed, and then the lack of corroboration, led me back to the fundamental issues to our legal system." Both Ford and Kavanaugh testified at length in late September before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Ford alleged that...
  • Grassley Sends Scathing Letter To Ford’s Attorneys Has Serious Dirty & Looking To Charge Them

    Hidden by the rabid anti-Trump media, who were preoccupied with their role in reporting non-stop the coverage of the protesters who were paid to disrupt the hearings for President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was a letter that Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley sent to the attorneys for accuser Christine Blasey-Ford. Chairman Grassley sent the letter on Thursday, the same day as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell moved for cloture to advance Kavanaugh’s nomination to the full Senate where a vote would them be taken (Friday) to open a 30-hour period of comment and consideration before the final confirmation...

Whispers, the Senate Judiciary Committee is now preparing to launch a full investigation into the machinations of Christine Blasey Ford’s legal team and the office of Senator Diane Feinstein based upon “…recently uncovered information.” It appears that FBI supplemental investigation into Judge (Justice) Brett Kavanaugh that Senator Feinstein demanded has backfired on her – BIG TIME.

Sen. Grassley has fired off another blistering letter to credible Christine Ford’s lawyers demanding evidence and communications. At the same time, ‘witness’ Leland Keyser says she was pressured to alter her statement, allegedly by the suspicious former FBI agent Monica McLean, the one Christine Ford allegedly helped prepare for a polygraph.

    Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) on Tuesday expressed concerns about the growing number of reports and anecdotal testimony that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was "aggressive" when he was drunk in high school and college. "The portrayal of himself as practically a choir boy is very much contradicted by his roommate, for example, in college, as well as people who knew him in high school," Hirono said on CNN's "New Day." "It all goes to how he behaves when he’s drunk," she continued. "His very aggressive behavior, belligerent behavior when he’s drunk. For someone to say I never did any of...

    The Democrats sacrificed Al Franken in order to shore up their effort to win a Senate seat in Alabama. They knew that Minnesota’s governor would appoint another Democrat to replace Franken, so they could net a Senate seat with an upset pickup in Alabama, which is exactly what happened. Many Minnesota Democrats are still unhappy that Franken was forced out of the Senate, not by Republicans but by his own Democratic colleagues. Now it is starting to look as though the Democrats may be throwing Deputy DNC Chairman Keith Ellison overboard in a similar manner. We noted last week that...
