. . . we should look more closely at what the nature of business is, because I don't think Armand Hammer [a Jew] was alone in using the techniques of bribery and things that you wouldn't speak about in public [gross deception, conspiracy, amorality, etc.] to achieve an economic purpose. I think that he might be much more representative of a kind of business, especially a business that depends on government favor and government concession.

This practice of constitutional revision by an unelected committee of nine, always accompanied (as it is today) by extravagant praise of liberty, robs the People of the most important liberty they asserted in the Declaration of Independence and won in the Revolution of 1776: the freedom to govern themselves.
Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is that people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of the leaders of their government and have gone to war, and millions have been killed because of this obedience.
Israel’s Prime Minister [Benjamin Netanyahu] is well-placed to explain to the U.S. Congress the alleged danger of a nuclear Iran. After all, it was Israel and its allies in Washington who fabricated this issue to begin with.
There are millions of Christians in America’s churches that couldn’t tell you what’s in the Bible to save their lives. They couldn’t quote the Ten Commandments; they couldn’t quote the Golden Rule; they couldn’t name Christ’s apostles; they couldn’t quote five verses of Scripture from memory if their lives depended on it.
In all ages the people of the world, equally with individuals, have accepted words for deeds, for THEY ARE CONTENT WITH A SHOW and rarely pause to note, in the public arena, whether promises are followed by performance.

MIT economist Jonathan Gruber’s factually impoverished testimony on Obamacare [before the House] didn’t get nearly the attention it should have, as congressional Democrats cleverly decided to release a report on CIA torture abuses on the same day.
Watchdog group says redundant benefits package puts special interests above people's health
HONOLULU, HAWAII--July 12, 2016--Today, the Grassroot Institute of Hawaii commended Governor Ige, who vetoed SB 2077, which would have put a $42 million benefits package in the way of the Maui hospital public-private partnership transition. Though hospital employees were already provided for in the original plan with guaranteed job transfers and pension protections, the union has continually tried to delay the transition through lawsuits and political machinations.
The watchdog group warned the legislature not to put a new $25 million package in the way of the transition, which could further delay the process and set a dangerous precedent for future public-private partnerships in the state.
The Grassroot Institute affirmed what Governor Ige said Monday in concerns about the "substantial" cost of the $42 millions in benefits. However, the Grassroot Institute warned that a new $25 million version of the measure would also add substantial costs to the transition and should be avoided.
"The high price of a special, additional deal for hospital workers would be prohibitive and could ultimately result in potential loss of services and jobs," said Dr. Keli'i Akina, Ph.D., President of the Grassroot Institute of Hawaii. "By demanding special treatment--above and beyond the provisions included in the original legislation--they are putting special interests above the lives of our citizens and jeopardizing the future of healthcare in our state."
Dr. Akina continued: "We commend Governor Ige's vetoing of a severance package for hospital employees that would increase our state's debt and cause further delay in the hospital transition. However, we warn the legislature that similar packages or special sessions would also be both costly and damaging to our state. The people of Maui have suffered enough. Let us get them the care they deserve."
"The legislature must avoid establishing a costly disincentive that would hinder the saving of other neighbor islands' hospital systems through healthy public-private partnerships," added Dr. Akina.
This video is one that will go down in history. Whether writ large or small remains to be seen.
Warning: Video of man who has just been shot and is dying.
According to Philando Castile's girlfriend, who was with him, he told the police officer who had just stopped them for a busted taillight that he had a gun on his person and had a permit to carry. Immediately after he moved his hands to reach for his ID, complying with the officer's request, according to his girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds. The words and action were a bad combination. The St. Anthony, Minnesota police officer, Jeronimo Yanez, may not have clearly heard what Philando said and may have also seen that he had a gun.
The live-streamed video shows that the officer is aghast at what he has just done to the dying Philando. What Philando's girlfriend Diamond is telling Officer Yanez likely is making him feel much worse.
And it appears she won’t be the last, either. In recent days, more than a dozen women have contacted Carlson’s New Jersey-based attorney, Nancy Erika Smith, and made detailed allegations of sexual harassment by Ailes over a 25-year period dating back to the 1960s when he was a producer on The Mike Douglas Show. “These are women who have never told these stories until now,” Smith told me. “Some are in lot of pain.” Taken together, these stories portray Ailes as a boss who spoke openly of expecting women to perform sexual favors in exchange for job opportunities. “He said that’s how all these men in media and politics work — everyone’s got their friend,” recalled Kellie Boyle, who says Ailes propositioned her in 1989, shortly after he helped George H.W. Bush become president, serving as his chief media strategist.
Six of the women agreed to speak with New York publicly for the first time. Two spoke on the record; the others requested anonymity for reasons that include shame and fear of retribution. “I didn’t tell my husband, it was so mortifying,” said Marsha Callahan, a former model who says Ailes harassed her in the late ‘60s, shortly before he became Richard Nixon’s media adviser.
Gretchen Carlson, who was recently canned by Fox News, is suing her ex-boss Roger Aisles for sexual harassment. She has publicly accused her former co-host, Steve Doocy, on the Fox & Friends news program of not treating her with respect and of being "sexist and condescending." He is not being sued by her. Here she's shown eight years ago showing little respect toward him and treating him like a sex object. He looks none too pleased.

Moscow has dispatched a specialized spy ship off the coast of Hawaii with the likely mission to monitor the U.S. Navy led Rim of the Pacific 2016 exercise, USNI News has learned.
A Russian Navy Bal’zam-class, “auxiliary general intelligence ship recently arrived in international waters off Hawaii where exercise Rim of the Pacific is taking place,” U.S. Pacific Fleet spokesman Lt. Clint Ramsden told USNI News this week.
“The ship’s presence has not affected the conduct of the exercise and we’ve taken all precautions necessary to protect our critical information.”
While it wasn’t unusual at all during the Cold War for Russian spy ships to linger off the coast of the U.S. to suck up signals intelligence information or monitor exercises like RIMPAC, the Russians have been lax in their surveillance until recently.

PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii — U.S. Pacific Fleet commander Adm. Scott Swift said Tuesday he wants all 26 nations participating in military exercises in Hawaii to leave better prepared to respond to humanitarian crises.
Swift said he also wants participants to better understand what the best practices are for using maritime power to increase security and stability.
The admiral spoke during a news conference at the beginning of the Rim of the Pacific military drills that will last through early August. The exercises will include 45 ships, 200 aircraft and more than 25,000 people.

Twenty-six nations, more than 40 ships and submarines, more than 200 aircraft and 25,000 personnel are participating in RIMPAC from June 30 to Aug. 4, in and around the Hawaiian Islands and Southern California. The world's largest international maritime exercise, RIMPAC provides a unique training opportunity that helps participants foster and sustain the cooperative relationships that are critical to ensuring the safety of sea lanes and security on the world's oceans. RIMPAC 2016 is the 25th exercise in the series that began in 1971. (U.S. Navy Combat Camera video by Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Benjamin A. Lewis/Released)
Nearly a thousand pounds of kalo [taro] were stolen from a Waimanalo farm just days before harvest -- and this wasn't just any taro either, but Hawaiian varieties that were being grown organically for research.
"People do different things for different reasons, so I really don't know what the motivation was. I suspect hunger was probably not part of it because they took so much. We suspect it was for sale or for an event," explained Dr. Ted Radovich, an Associate Specialist with the University of Hawai'i at Manoa Sustainability and Organic Farming Systems. Radovich oversees the organic kalo research program, which is focused on understanding how crop yield and quality can be optimized in agricultural systems that reduce reliance on conventional chemical inputs and increase use of ecological farming practices.
Radovich says sometime overnight on Monday, June 23, thieves made off with more than 700 pounds of taro. Just two weeks prior, he says another 300 pounds were stolen.
Hawaii Political Info introduction: The number of dead at Auschwitz was given at one point as 4,000,000 and commemorated on a plaque at the site. That was later revised downwards to 1,500,000 as these two Auschwitz plaques show. Notice that the plaques don't claim the dead were all Jews.
However, the total Jewish dead given by Jews and the mass media they control remains 6,000,000. It is against the law to say otherwise in upwards of 14 countries, including Germany, France and Canada. In fact Jews have used the 6,000,000 figure for Jewish victims from various calamities since well before Hitler and WWII.
The following 1948 German newsreel has English subtitles. Should you, like most in Hawaii and across the U.S., not speak German, you may wonder about the translation accuracy of that 300,000 figure. This can easily be checked for yourself because the German narrator clearly says "dreihunderttausend" (300,000) twice. The second time it is followed by "Opfer" (victims).
