Hawaii´s Governor Ousted in
Stunning Primary Loss

Associated Press, by Cathy Bussewitz & Juliet Williams

Original Article

Posted By:Flyright, 8/10/2014 8:16:03 AM

A 40-year political career came to a close after Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie lost his bid for a second term in a stunning primary-election defeat by a fellow Democrat and state senator who defied party leadership to challenge the incumbent. A second intraparty fight for U.S. Senate was too close to call. State Sen. David Ige, once seen as an underdog, cruised to a decisive 35 percentage point win in Saturday´s primary after being dramatically outspent by Abercrombie, who also had high-profile endorsements including President Barack Obama. Ige said his win "proves that people power can be money power, especially in Hawaii."

If anything this is the equivalent of an ANTI-Cantor vote as the Governor broke with the establishment.

One more victory for the dead icon.

"Abercrombie´s decision to appoint Schatz to the U.S. Senate seat after the death of beloved political icon U.S. Sen. Daniel Inouye, who died in 2012, also angered many Hawaii voters. Before he died, Inouye told Abercrombie that he wanted him to appoint Hanabusa to his seat."

Ige promised in a campaign flier that “there will be no name-calling when I disagree with anyone, no disparaging remarks toward anyone, no taking sole credit for collective achievements or blaming others when things go wrong.”
Soooo, does David Ige like Mr. Obama, because he just described him.

ISIL can either be killed now, or, after they consolidate their control of territory in the Middle East, they will waltz over our southern border and start killing Americans in their hometowns. Remember they have promised to do that, and we should take them at their word.

Obama´s total withdrawal from Iraq--and soon Afghanistan--will leave us in far worse shape than we were in fifteen years ago. Zero may not be interested in war, but it´s coming our way if we don´t do enough to help defend our would be allies. Every time we slither out of one bloodbath, a worse one later becomes inevitable.

Re #16, this was a primary election where Abercrombie was beaten by another Dem.

The notion that Dems stick together and vote for the candidate with the (D) after their name was about the general election. We have had numbers of people who refuse to vote for an (R) against a (D) when the (R) isn´t quite pure enough. So we got Obama. Twice.

I called Hawaii home for almost four years and it is as close to a third world country as you can get. If you are even a part native Hawaiian you get a free ride, the roads are filled with pot holes, the nepotism is unbelievable and Abercrombie looks like a toad and is about as smart as one.

After four years I couldn´t wait to get out of "Paradise" once and for all. I never plan on going back.

They tried to get nuclear power for the islands, but the locals killed it as they don´t want anything nuclear in or around their beloved island, but at Pearl Harbor, it is the home of 18 nuclear powered fast attack subs. Go figure.

They killed the high speed ferry that would allow cars and trucks to actually go to each island, but the long shoremens union killed it because it might bring lower cost labor from the other islands to Oahu.

Near Pearl harbor it took over five years to build a 200 foot long bridge on the Nimitz that crosses over a small creek. You pass a construction site and there are six workers and probably five or six Honolulu cops with their hands in their pockets. Not directing traffic, which is as bad as anything you will find on the 205 around Portland or LA´s freeways on the beginning of a three day weekend. If you live in West Oahu, and work in downtown Honolulu, it can take up to three hours each way, and it´s only about 18 miles.

Cheers....MSgt USAF (ret)

Oh and #17 - by not pure enough the conservative voters are not voting for a non-conservative. Every time the stupid GOP runs a moderate HE LOSES. You can either get mad at the voters whose patterns are not affected by your disdain or you can work to nominate a conservative that will get the votes. Does the GOP intend to repeat the mistakes of 2008 and 2012 by nominating another moderate? That would be the definition of insanity. Funny that, when a conservative runs, he wins. Methinks you are angry at the wrong part of the party.

Re #22, the best we can do is promote and vote for Conservatives in the primaries. But it they don´t make it, we shoot ourselves in the foot by showing our anger by not voting for whoever is the ultimate nominee in the General Election.

Those who sit out GENERAL (not primary) elections or threaten to vote for the Dem because they are angry about the nominee are the ones who are the problem. And those who are too lazy to actually get out and vote for Conservatives in the primaries.

Looking at the polling data, it appears closer to Obama vs. Clinton than anything.

There was a clear racist angle going on, certain races vote lockstep for people of their persuasion.

This is basically the same as Obama, who got 95% of the black vote against Hillary, which is statistically impossible except for race.

#22, the big trouble about so-called republican moderates is, that once they get the nomination they turn into not quite liberal, socialist democrats. If they would fight the demoncRATS as hard as they did other Republicans they could have won without outraging and losing their original Republican support.

We are not having an argument, it´s just that you don´t seem to see that your disdain has no impact and serves no purpose other that to vent your spleen. You will not ´shame´ a person into voting against their convictions. period. The only people who don´t understand that do not suffer from convictions. In a value neutral situation, I might agree that there is no reason for petulance, however the GOP/RNC funding and organization have not only not served conservative interests, they are fighting against them almost as hard as democrats. I didn´t leave my party, they left me. I always vote, but I can understand those who won´t as a matter of conscience, and I can only hope that someday those idiots in the Beltway Bubble come to terms with their ever-present losing strategy, and give their party BASE someone to support. Again, you are angry at the wrong part of the party.

Obama´s Speech on ISIS, in Plain English

Qua speech, Barack Obama’s address Wednesday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was surprisingly terrible: a disorganized mess, insincere and unconvincing. To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.

Some Capitol Hill lawmakers are baffled. What does President Obama want from Congress as he begins the U.S. military escalation in Iraq and Syria? The question wasn´t answered by the president´s much-anticipated speech Wednesday night. First, Obama seemed to tell Congress to mind its own business. "I have the authority to address the threat from ISIL," he said, indicating he didn´t need or want any permission from the legislative branch to fight the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.Then Obama added, "But I believe we are strongest as a nation when the president and Congress work together.

With his address to the nation Wednesday evening, President Obama revealed that he is a leader in deep denial about the threat the United States faces, and about the steps that are necessary to deal with it. In his remarks, Obama offered up a series of delusions, each of which point to the ultimate defeat of the United States in the war he has embarked upon. Delusion #1: Obama still thinks ISIS is the JV team. Here’s how he began his speech: We can’t erase every trace of evil from the world, and small groups of killers have the capacity to do great harm.

President Obama on Wednesday night outlined an open-ended campaign to combat the threat posed by the Islamic State, significantly expanding the counter­terrorism strategy that has been a hallmark of his presidency.Obama said in a prime-time speech televised from the White House that the United States will join “with our friends and allies to degrade, and ultimately destroy, the terrorist group known as ISIL,” using an alternative acronym for the group that has emerged in Iraq and Syria.Saying the United States is meeting the threat with “strength and resolve,” the president also sought to assuage the concerns of Americans who are

The left front foot wide open, out of the box until the last moment, and the cop-at-a-crossing right hand ritually lifted astern until the foot swings shut.

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

The Obama administration is preparing to introduce major steps to phase out production of a popular chemical coolant used in refrigerators and air conditioners, citing growing evidence that the substance is contributing to the warming of the planet. The White House will announce on Tuesday a series of voluntary commitments by some of the country’s largest chemical firms and retailers to move rapidly away from R-134a and similar compounds used in nearly every office, home and automobile in the country, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the effort. The administration is simultaneously stepping up diplomatic efforts to

There’s a lot of competition for Barack Obama’s biggest lie. The man who could assure the American public with a straight face over thirty times that they could keep their doctor under his health plan, when he knew that to be completely false, is one hellluva fibber. But execrable as that serial prevarication may have been, it doesn’t hold a proverbial candle to his most recent whopper — that the Islamic State is not Islamic — not to mention its corollary, or perhaps subsidiary lie, that real religions do not indulge in murder.

Is a mutiny happening around President Obama? It appears possible that the president may not have made two of his most recent decisions with complete free will.

Maybe Democratic leaders in Congress and a few members of the Obama team have had it. Could it be that, after President Obama briefed Democrats in Congress on the immigration plan, they balked? Maybe the president was told that, if he

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) tsk-tsked conservative media for "coarsening our debate" and vowed to "do my small part" to keep things civil before spontaneously praising President Obama´s recent foreign policy decisions. In an interview for Meet the Press´s "Press Pass" segment, Ryan and new host Chuck Todd might have been mistaken for being on a "No Labels" panel discussion as they both lamented how politicians are rewarded in "advocacy media outlets" for bold rhetoric and standing firm in their positions. Todd lamented that "members of both parties" often "get standing ovations for the rhetoric," to which Ryan replied, "I don´t
