Mazie is at it again. Just being her own nasty self and spewing venom instead of spreading the spirit of aloha.
Hawaii Democrats probably will never say this out loud, but they are obviously embarrassed and humiliated by both of our two U.S. Senators who think they can act with impunity and that they have lifetime tenure because they have a [D] after their name. Without thoroughly yet perusing social media, today I’ve already seen rebukes of Mazie from Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham and from media personality Laura Ingraham.
Mazie grew up with an abusive father and now takes her hostilities out on men, conservatives, Christians and anybody and everybody who dares to disagree with her on anything or everything. I have never heard her say one positive or constructive thing in all the time during the nearly 40 years she has been a Hawaii politician.
While Mazie is an extreme ideologue, our other U.S. Senator Brian Schatz is nothing but an inept opportunist. The most noteworthy thing he did in college in Southern California was to participate in a fraternity stunt of simulated sheep rape rituals. You can Google that if you’re really interested.
Brian apparently walks around Capitol Hill staring down at his mobile phone and sending out inane tweets. Yeah, I know what some are thinking. Put him and Donald Trump in a room together and project their tweets on a huuuge screen. Let the audience determine who wins the booby prize for incoherence.
The difference as I see it is that when Trump stops tweeting, he occasionally does something sensible. Brian, on the other hand, has no more claim to fame than regurgitating Democrat talking points in non-sequiturs.
If Hawaii GOP keeps doing exactly what they’ve been doing since statehood 60 years ago, the local Democrat one-party machine will never be dismantled. There is not one single Republican incumbent in the 50th state who can really be a standard-bearer and spokesperson for the conservative cause.
Hawaii Governor and Honolulu Mayor are classic liberals, though the latter is actually chosen in a nonpartisan election. Neither the Governorship nor either Hawaii U.S. Senatorial seat will be open in 2020.
That gives Hawaii conservatives a bit of a pause to regroup and start working together better. I’m tempted to facetiously say all half dozen of us. But seriously, there must be at least twice that number.
Now you see why I am not a politician. I simply can’t stomach all the machinations and maneuvers that politicians go through. I will support them behind the scenes as a policy advisor and social media person. But actually campaigning would probably be less fun than running barefooted over a field of broken glass.
The essence of the problem here in Hawaii as well as everywhere else is the “We vs. They” mentality. That doesn’t even apply only to politics. It also involves the players in foreign relations and national security.
Teams are now being formed. The Totalitarian Tyrannies are led by China, Russia, North Korea and Iran. They are challenging stability worldwide, not only in the South China Sea and Pacific Basin. The Middle East, South America, Africa and even Oceania are in their crosshairs.
United States, Israel, Japan and India are cooperating to form a Freedom Alliance. Freedom of Navigation Operations are being conducted on the world’s waterways. Smaller and more vulnerable countries are finding support from one side or the other.
That was a bit of a digression but the international scene and the domestic scene are not mutually exclusive when it comes to assessing our immediate priorities. In American politics, particularly here in Hawaii, the “We vs. They” mentality also pervades and distorts the situation.
So, every American voter must individually decide which groups to identify with and to refer to as “We”. Hopefully, it never comes down to just me and the mouse in my pocket.
Some languages and cultures are more specific about the use of collective pronouns. In Tagalog, for instance, “tayo” means “we” including the person spoken to. “Kami” however excludes the person spoken to. In other words, all of us but not you.
In Hawaii, for most voters, “we”, “us” and “our” typically refer to the Democrat Party. Therefore, no matter how much one may personally not like Mazie Hirono, they can comfortably and without apparent contradiction say “she is one of ‘us'”.
It is most definitely not about demographics. It is about politics. Mazie Hirono is a natural-born United States citizen who was born in Japan with an American mother. Brian Schatz is a Caucasian male and a Jew from the U.S. mainland.
So it really has nothing to do with race, gender, ethnicity or religion. Mazie is a Buddhist. Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard is Hindu.
Former and current Representative Ed Case is identified as a Christian. He’s the guy who said that he feels like an Asian trapped in a white body. He immediately walked back that statement.
Strangely enough, I actually understand his underlying intent as a Caucasian in the Asia-Pacific environment. But everybody should be comfortable with who they are. None of us should seek to be that which we are not.
My own background is mixed Anglo-Saxon and Native American. I have spent most of the last half-century and the majority of my adult life in Hawaii. I spent several years in the Philippines and on Okinawa. But occasionally, I run into a liberal who says that anybody with my conservative views can go back home to Alabama. I drove across southern Alabama on I-10 once in my entire life.
But that is the essence of the incongruous [and perhaps “In Congress”] tendency to divide us all up into teams unnecessarily. As Americans, we should stand side-by-side or perhaps back-to-back with one another facing against mutual enemies both foreign and domestic.
So, going forward, conservatives in Hawaii need to speak out and identify ourselves as to where we stand on the substantive issues of the day. While labels should not be important, in Hawaii being a Democrat means that an election is yours to lose. Being a Republican means your chances of ever getting into office are somewhere between slim and none.
But getting elected is not the ultimate goal. People with ethics and integrity will not join the Democrat Party which opposes virtually everything we hold dear and whose standard-bearer in the upcoming presidential election we most definitely will not be able to support. We don’t have to agree with everything President Trump does or tweets to be able to accept him as the least worst alternative in the White House.
Next year will be the nonpartisan Honolulu Mayoral race. Both U.S. Congressional Districts 1 and 2 will as always be up for challenge. We need viable conservative unflappable candidates for each of them.
This time, we must take off the kid gloves! Do you know where that term comes from? It refers to kid leather made from young goats. I’m actually old enough to remember in elementary school in Oregon in the 1950s when I was scolded by a teacher for referring to a classmate as a kid. She reminded me that he was not a baby goat. Yes, that actually did happen. Times surely change, don’t they?
But kid gloves today is a colloquial expression which refers to careful delicate treatment of a person or situation. Anybody who deals with Mazie Hirono that way will feel the imprint off her heels on their back. She will walk all over them.
We’ve got until 2024 to take her on again in an electoral contest. But, in the meantime we can expose her betrayal of the spirit of aloha to everyone who asks us how we can possibly send such a spiteful person to Washington DC in our behalf.
Brian Schatz will be up for reelection in 2022. We need now to make a very substantial file of all his stupid short-sighted tweets. He is much less a legislator than he is an attack dog for the DNC. He should be very vulnerable in a one-on-one debate with a knowledgeable competent opponent. Of course, the Hawaii media will do everything they can to cover for him and protect him from that.
Enter NOQ Report on the Hawaii scene. In 2018, the Hawaii Democrat-controlled media buried the conservative agenda and we had no way to present it to the voters in a timely and thorough manner. But that is no longer the case.
This article you are now reading is a prime example of that fact. This is the 37th article which Publisher JD Rucker has posted for yours truly. Most are not just about Hawaii politics. National security and foreign relations are also very high on my own agenda.
We need other conservatives here in Hawaii to prove that that terminology is not just an oxymoron. Many people in Hawaii are social conservatives and fiscal conservatives. But they are mired on the Democrat Plantation because they always have been and it was handed down from one generation to the next.
So, we need an intervention and an infusion of truth into these heretofore murky political waters. Those who want to be part of the future of Hawaii as we shake off decades of Democrat domination and oppression need to ignore Mazie’s threat for us to just shut up. No, ma’am, that ain’t gonna happen!
If you see yourself in the rhetorical picture I just painted, please click on this link to let NOQ Report know that you will stand with us and you will speak up. Then in 2020, we will surprise not only the world but specifically the do-nothings at the Hawaii Republican Party HQ.
I close with a reminder to all of our good friends outside of Hawaii; you can also help get the conservative message to your family, friends and neighbors in your home state. You are also invited to support NOQ Report to share the message of Hope in America.
God bless Hawaii and all the other 49 states!
