    West Hawaii Today ^ | Monday, August 13, 2018, 5 p.m. | Generic
    Hawaii is dropping its legal fight against President Donald Trump’s travel ban on citizens from several mostly Muslim countries after the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the policy. The state attorney general’s office voluntarily dismissed the case Monday. Lt. Gov. Doug Chin sued to stop the travel ban from taking effect when he was attorney general last year. “Although we were disappointed by the United States Supreme Court’s decision upholding President Trump’s third travel ban,” current Attorney General Russell Suzuki...

    The title is somewhat misleading. This essay is specifically written for young black Americans who believe or have absorbed the message that the ghetto and life on the margin are their destiny, that success is unattainable, and that dreams are only for white people. Before you are halfway through the essay, many of you will be condemning and ridiculing me as simplistic, unrealistic, idealistic, and naive. I agree. But you ignore my message at your own peril. It is very demanding. Anything worth having is very demanding. Your friends may ostracize you and ridicule you as "trying to be white."...

    The #NeverTrumpumpkins define themselves by their visceral distaste for the president. He offends their fastidious sensibilities, outrages them with his unfiltered Twitter musings, and violates their sense of propriety with his secular hedonism and sheer joy in his own vulgarity. That he’s also delivering the most conservative administration in history is, to them, beside the point—because Trump neither represents nor embodies “movement” conservatism. And therein, for them, lies the problem. Movements are, almost by definition, attractive to the young and the emotionally immature. Followers love to follow; even more, they love to memorize catechisms and rote talking points, which they...

    n the small-town and rural Midwest, the Republican margin of victory over the Democratic presidential candidate increased to 28.8 percent in 2016 from 12.4 percent in 2012. Hillary Clinton ruled the big Midwestern cities and suburbs in 2016, often surpassing Barack Obama’s 2012 margins of victory in places like Hamilton County, Ohio (Cincinnati) and Hennepin County, Minnesota (Minneapolis.) But in every Midwestern state, the small towns and countryside gave Donald Trump much higher victory margins than they gave Mitt Romney in 2012. The small-town and rural Midwest gave Hillary 20 percent fewer votes than Obama received in 2012, and gave...

    Jane Fonda resumes her performance as an historical revisionist on a subject that keeps coming back to haunt her: the Vietnam War. Jane basked in the glow of her safe audience at the festival -- taking advantage of the occasion to screen the sanitized version of her life in the recently released HBO documentary, Jane Fonda in Five Acts. At the event, gullible liberals made up most of her audience embracing the activist’s “proud” anti-war participation from the 1970s, but not everyone proved to be a fawning fan. Dozens of Vietnam veterans showed up to protest Fonda’s blatantly false wartime...

    Republic Standard ^ | 08/13/2018 | Arjuna Rubbo-Ferraro
    A common claim amongst civic nationalists and mainstream conservatives relates to putting ideology before ancestry, believing that if a select group of people thinks in a certain way, genes aren’t important. The issue with this line of thought is in the inherent neglect of inheritance of political views, how beliefs travel generation to generation, the environment they’re raised in and the lineage which biologically constructs their sets of beliefs, ingrained into their genetic code by birth. That is of a birthrate, the heritability of political views -genopolitics- that goes so often ignored by the right and the left, pushed aside...

    A passing thunderstorm forced the far-right demonstrators to break down their rally stage in Lafayette Park near the White House prematurely, but as police escorted them from the area, reports of Antifa resistance emerged. Some 200 anti-fascists, many of them wearing black masks, confronted police about a half-mile from the White House as officers shoved them back, The Associated Press reported.

    No matter how globalism is repackaged, it always smells the same way in the end. For decades, the globalists have subtly (or sometimes not so subtly) been moving us toward a world in which national borders have essentially been made meaningless. The ultimate goal, of course, is to merge all the nations of the world into a “one world socialist utopia” with a global government, a global economic system and even a global religion. The European Union is a model for what the elite hope to achieve eventually on a global scale. The individual nations still exist, but once inside...

    Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Gov. John Kasich (R-OH) said American who agree with President Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy that caused the separation of families “have not come to understand what faith is.” Kasich then cited Biblical doctrine of loving your neighbor. Kasich said, “The reason why I did not go to our convention and support Donald Trump as president is I’m not for a divider. I’m not for people who say the reason you don’t have something it’s because somebody else took your stuff that’s told victimization. I don’t believe in that.”

    Despite numerous promises from congressional Democrats and President Barack Obama when they passed the Affordable Care Act in 2010, the health care law has created far more problems than it has solved. Premiums, deductibles, and health care choices have all worsened since Obamacare went into effect, and there’s no sign America’s health insurance system will improve anytime in the near future.President Trump inherited a health insurance crisis when he took office in January 2017, so he and congressional Republican leaders immediately began to work to implement their plan to replace Obamacare with a more market-centered approach to improving the...

    • "We have to realize that perhaps China isn't as strong as when we at first think. China is still figuring out also how to deal with this trade situation, how to ensure the stability of its domestic economy," said Curtis Chin, an Asia fellow at the Milken Institute. • Speaking to CNBC's "Squawk Box," Chin also "totally" disagreed with the view that U.S. President Donald Trump's policies are backfiring. China's power may have been overrated and the U.S. economy is staying strong, meaning that U.S. President Donald Trump has an advantage in the trade war, according to one expert....

    A conservative activist crashed a campaign event for two Muslim candidates on Saturday, interrupting them with shouted questions about Hamas and “terrorist groups.” Laura Loomer, formerly of the group Project Veritas, shared images and video of the incident on Twitter, calling the candidates "Jihadi" and writing that she was helping Minnesotans “break free from Sharia.” The event supported Minnesota state Rep. Ilhan Omar (DFL) and former Michigan state Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D). Omar is a Somali-American candidate running to fill the congressional seat vacated by Rep. Keith Ellison (D), who is running for Minnesota attorney general. Tlaib, meanwhile, won the...

    The #NeverTrump GOP establishment is pouring money and resources into duping Arizona voters into backing a non-Trump supporting “Republican” in a crucial U.S. Senate race. “Allies of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell dove into the middle of a major Senate race Thursday, airing ads to help remake Rep. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.) as a border hawk ahead of her August primary with two prominent immigration hard-liners,” wrote Politico in June.
