Is Hawaii exempt from terror attacks?



Is Hawaii exempt from terror attacks

In August 1982, a Palestinian terrorist who had been harbored and given safe haven in Iraq by Saddam Hussein flew from Baghdad to Tokyo with his Austrian wife and their toddler son. During the final leg of his journey between Hong Kong and Tokyo, he planted a bomb under the seat near the rear of the aircraft and then he disembarked in Japan. It detonated when a Japanese youth stood up. He was killed in the explosion upon landing at Honolulu International Airport. The terrorist bomb was designed to breach the fuselage of the aircraft and take it down if it had occurred in midair.

You can Google Pan Am 830.

I’m not going to delve deeply into the details of this incident and the others which we will consider because I want to avoid having anyone get sidetracked into each case study, but rather do your own research and learn about what has brought us to this point in time.

Have you ever heard of the terror plot called Bojinka? In 1995, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who later was the architect of 9/11, conspired with others in Manila, Philippines, to plant explosives on nearly a dozen jumbo jets crossing the Pacific Ocean and take them down in midair. At least one of those flights would have been destined into Honolulu. The same plot would have assassinated Pope John Paul II on his visit to the Philippines. It was foiled only because of an explosion during the preparation stages in Manila. This was a predecessor of a similar plot from London, England, about a decade later.

In the years leading up to the 9/11/2001 terror attacks in the United States, several of the future hijackers trained at flight schools in the Philippines. Several also made visits into the Fiji islands in the South Pacific which have never really been fully explained as to what they did there or with whom they met. The nexus with Hawaii in this one is a bit more speculative but Hawaii historically has served as either a transit point or a meeting place.

Within the last decade from the present date, a suspected terrorist from Staten Island in New York City spent a significant amount of time in Hawaii and was apprehended here and extradited back to that jurisdiction. His Hawaii connections are not clear.

Hawaii has long served as a backdoor entry into the United States for persons traveling on to locales on the United States mainland. On the one hand, this has included circuitous air routes from South America via the South Pacific into Hawaii utilized by drug smugglers evading detection on the east coast and other major mainland cities.

Indirect flights from the Middle East and Southwest Asia connect via cities like Bangkok or Singapore or Manila or Tokyo or Hong Kong, for instance, into Hawaii. Now that jumbo jets can fly long distances without refueling, many just wave at Hawaii from 35,000 feet overhead. So, anybody who stops here has chosen to do it for some specific reason.

There is also a very serious issue involving small vessels. This includes both the fishing vessels that circumnavigate the Pacific Basin for their catch as well as private yachts. I’ll save this to go into in more depth at a later time. Basically we do not know who or what is on any of these boats until they get here.

I will wrap it up this time with the case of Ikaika Kang. He was a local Hawaii boy who converted to Islam while serving in the U.S. Army in the Middle East. He was then stationed at Schofield Barracks here on Oahu. Military authorities in conjunction with the FBI documented his attempts to provide material support and information to ISIS. Public domain reports also indicate that he had threatened to attack commuters on the H-1 freeway as a sniper and also to shoot people in Waikiki and at local shopping centers such as Ala Moana and Ka Makana Alii. He was willing to commit treason and kill his fellow soldiers and neighbors in the name of his new religion and ideology.

All of this information is strictly from open sources. In this internet age, the distance from Honolulu to Islamabad and from Pakistan to Hawaii is just one nanosecond in social media.

Yes, it can happen in Hawaii. It did happen in Hawaii. It almost happened in Hawaii. It may have been plotted in Hawaii and carried out elsewhere. It could be plotted elsewhere to happen here. Circumspection is the order of the day!

Thanks to Trump, Americans still have free speech



Thanks to Trump Americans still have free speech

In spite of what mainstream media says, Trump’s rejection of the “Christchurch Call” may spare Americans from the Orwellian censorship other Western countries have pledged their allegiance to

Using tragedies to push political agendas is nothing new.

While people are still reeling from some disaster, before they are thinking rationally again is the best time for the shrewd-minded to take advantage of the situation. These cunning individuals cite prevention of another catastrophe in order to pressure those soft hearts – yet to come down from the shock of recent horrific events – into taking rash, impulsive, immediate action.

This is exactly what happened on May 15, when several nations and big tech companies, such as Facebook, Google, Twitter, Amazon, and Microsoft, signed a pledge written up in response to the Christchurch mosque massacre which was live-streamed by the shooter on Facebook.

The “Christchurch Call To Action,” which can be read in its entirety here, outlined efforts to be taken in order “to eliminate terrorist and violent extremist content online,” including “strengthening the resilience and inclusiveness of our societies” and encouraging media to “apply ethical standards when depicting terrorist events online.”

Among the countries who signed the call were Britain, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, Ireland, Italy, France, Germany, Spain, Norway, Sweden, the Netherlands, the European Commission, Japan, Senegal, Jordan, India, and Indonesia.

But not America.

President Trump saw through the guise of humanitarianism that the Christchurch Call hid behind and refused to get on board.

In a statement regarding the president’s decision not to sign the Call, the White House claimed,

”We continue to be proactive in our efforts to counter terrorist content online while also continuing to respect freedom of expression and freedom of the press. Further, we maintain that the best tool to defeat terrorist speech is productive speech, and thus we emphasize the importance of promoting credible, alternative narratives as the primary means by which we can defeat terrorist messaging.”

Unsurprisingly, Trump has received a lot of backlash from mainstream media accusing him of being a “white supremacist bigot” contributing to “hate” for not signing the Call, but in reality, Trump was wise to stand against the crowd on this one.

The Christchurch Call is framed as a means for combating terrorism, but the vague terms sprinkled throughout the reactionary document like “inclusiveness” and “ethical standards” leave too much open to interpretation. Such loosely defined words make plenty of room for government censorship of any dissenting opinions on the Internet.

Other western countries are already sliding down the slippery slope towards an Orwellian future.

Just after the Christchurch shooting, New Zealand criminalized the video of the assailant’s livestream and his manifesto. Now, several citizens of New Zealand have been arrested and are facing up to 14 years of imprisonment just for sharing the video.

Some New Zealanders have also reported receiving visits from local police, who asked questions regarding their political views, such as if they liked Trump or not.

In Scotland, a man was fined £800 for making this video in the spirit of comedy:

Several U.K. citizens have been arrested, fined, or had the police visit them for criticizing Islam on social media.

While Americans like Alex Jones have questionably been banned from platforms like Facebook and Youtube, this is the worst it gets in the United States.

In America, government involvement in silencing online political dissidents through arrests and fines is unheard of. In declining to sign the Christchurch Call, Trump made a statement displaying his commitment to preserving his people’s right to voice their opinions, no matter how controversial.

While the Trump administration still stands, America will remain the land of freedom of speech.

Blue Collar Logic: How the left is acting like a villain who wants to be caught



Blue Collar Logic How the left is acting like a villain who wants to be caught

There are many ways to look at the unprecedented lurch to the left the Democratic Party has been experiencing over the last couple of years. Some, particularly the radical progressives leading the charge, see it as a natural evolution of ideas as their delicate sensibilities blossom. Establishment Democrats see them as a backlash against losing so inexplicably with Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. Many Republicans don’t see much of a difference other than a more vocal expression of what they’ve held in their hearts for some time.

The folks over at Blue Collar Logic have a different take. They’re seeing the strange actions and hyper-leftist lurching by the Democrats as a transition into a criminal mindset. Whether consciously or subconsciously, they’re throwing out ideas that make very little sense even when compared to what they’ve said in the past. Like a criminal that wants to be caught, they’re leaving clues that they know what they’re doing and saying is wrong, but they feel compelled to do them anyway.

The clearest example to me is the notion that abortions can and should be a consideration even after an “unwanted” baby is born following a botched abortion. Even in the most evil levels of consciousness, there has to be a sense of wrongdoing in the way they’re describing the events as they can hypothetically happen based on what’s being proposed in some states today, but they continue down this road as if they’re unaffected by logic or compassion. The push for “women’s rights” has so superseded their thinking when it comes to abortion that the most extreme version of abortion must be the one that they embrace.

As we approach the 2020 election season, let’s keep a close eye on the rhetoric and radical policy proposals candidates are throwing out. Just because it’s on record doesn’t mean enough voters will hear them. We need their ideas to stick to them like evidence in a murder case.

Conspiracy Theory

What does San Francisco Mayor London Breed have to hide about Jeff Adachi’s death?



What does San Francisco Mayor London Breed have to hide about

San Francisco politicians would be in an absolute uproar if the Trump administration ordered the suspension of an unambiguous liberty for the sake of expediency. They would declare a Constitutional crisis was underway and would demand the rights of their citizens be upheld while those who violated them should be held accountable. But when the rights of a citizen are trampled on to benefit their corrupt politicians, they stand by the trampling and pretend like nothing foul is afoot.

Such is the story of journalist Bryan Carmody. His 1st Amendment rights were disregarded so blatantly and so frivolously that it’s obvious there’s a major cover up underway that is protecting very powerful people in the progressive mecca of San Francisco. Following Public Defender Jeff Adachi’s death, a leaked police report was released by Carmody, prompting the San Francisco Police to illegally attempt to force him to reveal his source. He is protected by the Freedom of the Press from divulging his source, but strong-arm techniques reminiscent of the actions of third-world dictators doesn’t seem to be making a dent in the official stories from San Francisco politicians, most notably Mayor London Breed.

San Francisco’s mayor shows the country what a real attack on the free press looks like

Carmody claims he was restrained in handcuffs for nearly six hours as the authorities ransacked his home, seizing “laptops, phones and hard drives — including all the images and documents he had archived from his 29-year career as a reporter and cameraman,” the report adds.

Law enforcement officials have neither denied nor contradicted the freelancer’s version of events. The San Francisco Police Department has not yet returned Carmody’s equipment. The raid, which was approved by two trial court judges, also included agents from the FBI.

And all because Carmody refused to give up a confidential source, as is his right. The mayor sees it differently, though, and she is digging in.

The Mayor took the unconstitutional route from the start and hasn’t looked back.

“San Francisco Police Department is in the process of conducting an investigation into how confidential information was released within the Department. As part of this investigation, the Department went through the appropriate legal process to request a search warrant, which was approved by two judges,” her office said in a statement last week.

Even now, as the pressure mounts from news outlets across the country for the far-left political machine of San Francisco to denounce the attack on the press, one that is so much more direct and heinous than anything President Trump has done, they continue to focus on the legality of the search warrants (even though they clearly were not legal by any stretch of the imagination) and the imperative of finding out who leaked the memos, something that no average San Francisco resident could ever actually care about if they’re being honest.

Instead of defending the Constitution and the rights of their citizens, they’re redirecting.

Their unabashed willingness to continue forward despite all the bad press they’re getting can easily lead someone to one conclusion: There’s something really bad surrounding Adechi’s death that has San Francisco Democrats terrified. There’s a cover up happening right before our eyes, one that has politicians, police, and judges involved and unwavering in their willingness to discard the 1st Amendment altogether.

Whatever has London Breed and her cronies spooked about Adechi’s death, it has to be huge. Otherwise, they wouldn’t be pressing so adamantly against the Constitution of the United States in the broad daylight of public condemnation.
