Mike, what country are you talking about, certainly not the USA. Some other facts for you to think about, the stock market strongest its ever been, how long has it been since you've seen Merry Christmas said...the last eight years hardly ever and rarely ever God bless America.
The facts will come out haha, they will now about the last 8 yrs. They wouldn't have if HRC was elected. Nothing but cover ups. Too bad the media who was in bed with the dems for 8 yrs won't talk about it. The propaganda machine was the DNC, CNN, MSNBC etc., controlled by the globalists to destroy America. The swamp is slowly being picked apart by DT on both sides. He is a patriot and continues to say God bless America and I love this country, how often did you hear this in the past 8 yrs ? very, very seldom.
And btw comrade Mike, it will take time for you and the left to realize just how bad things were behind the curtains. It takes a bigger person to admit their mistakes and see the light of day instead of just going along in the dark

100%
Merry Christmas and always keep Christ in Christmas. The majority of REAL HAWAIIANS that I know are religious, believe in God and are conservative. Why am I not surprised that the island of Niihau, the majority's voted for DT and in the past for Bush

That’s a list of mistakes, failures, and things against the interests of our country as a whole, that’s not exactly getting things done by any reasonable measure, the consensus is clear, it’s what was expected.
I do find it amusing that you think ISIS has been defeated.
I understand his supporters want to cling to hope and not have to admit they were conned......that realization will be undeniable when all the facts are made public, if not, I’ll be the first to say I was wrong.

You mention "the administration can't get anything done right." I suppose "can't get anything done right" is subjective. But here is a list of what at least half the country is happy with:

- Eliminating Barry's climate change initiatives.

- Trump to remove ‘climate change’ as a national security threat.

- Travel bans for individuals from a select number of countries embroiled in terrorist atrocities.

- Enforcing regulatory reform.

- Protecting Law enforcement.

- Mandating for every new regulation to eliminate two. (However, for every new regulation that Trump has imposed, 16 have been erased).

- Defeating ISIS.

- Rebuilding the military.

-Signed Legislation for the improvements of veteran's and Veteran's Affair.

- Cutting funding for sanctuary cities.

- Approving pipelines.

-An Amazing foreign policy (Many examples

- Reducing regulations on manufacturers.

- Placing a hiring freeze on federal employees.

- Exiting the US from the TPP, Paris Climate Agreement (probably the most under reported, under appreciated moves he's made).

- Tax Reform (for me in 2018 will be a tax savings of about $3000)

-Dismantling “Net Neutrality”

-Neil Grouch Justice

- NATO allies will now have to pay the fair share.

- North Korea now on the list of State Sponsors of Terrorism (where past administrations failed to do so)

-Fixed the bathroom issue

...and so much more.

Now I do realize some of these "wins" are not seen as such for some people, but it would be hard to argue these aren't for the benefit of the American people.

I personally don't think they'll get their way. Trump has done so much reversing the Obama years of regulation that it'll take years to get their power back in any substantial way, not to mention the removal of our duly elected President. The longer he stays in office, the more people who didn't vote for him will realize we're so much better off than any time in the last 3 decades – and the party's just getting started! Too much win, yet?

Re: Need for Lifeguard Tower at Pu‘u Keka‘a Explored
Posted by Boi Crichton on 12/17/2017 5:24am

There is a long line of hotels in the area. Add a dollar to your room tax and that would definitely pay the $600,000 a year lifeguard stand and workers in the states jurisdiction. Provide another tower not take it away. Hotels should have pamphlets or classes that educate visitors about the water surrounding the hotel they are staying at. Not as a scare tactic, which most of them are probably looking at it as, but as an educational tool to ensure that the hotel truly cares for guests and there well being. Back in the day it was proposed to put a tower in front of the hotels in the first place. It was deemed "unsightly" according to hotels management that's why it was put on county land. The only reason near fatal drowning numbers are low in the hanakao'o area is because the locals have been assisting life guards by rescuing people out of the water before serious harm so no sense document. But if the life guard station is relocated rescues in the area will most likely double.

Media outlets are, by and large, propaganda machines. Look no further than the book "Propaganda", by Edward Bernays, to understand how brainwashing happens/works. Once broken from this "media prison", you can no longer have meaningful discussions about politics, and life in general with those who chose to stay ignorant...nor can you ever go back to the "old way" of thinking.

I tried to post Trumps accomplishments the other day but Maui Now had decided it wasn't appropriate, and needed to be censored. Let's just say the list was "Bigly." The reason this list would never see the light of day in any liberal news publication is because it would expose the lies of the left, and right to some degree, and would change the perception of Trump for many. But most of what Trump is doing is to enhance american lives, bringing power back to the people as it should have been all along, backing out of global agreements that would have strapped the american way of life while abdicating our soverenty to unelected bureaucrats, and to bring back security our country deserves.

But hey, at least half the country appreciates what he has done!

And Merry Christmas!

Re: Two Seriously Injured in Fall from Mules on Kalaupapa Cliff-Side Trail
Posted by Sam on 12/17/2017 12:04am

My prayers are with the injured. Accidents will happen, humans have them so do animals. Recently I was Blessed to visit Kalaupapa. Personally, I opted out to walk this trail, I could just have easily fallen and been injured walking.
To see something so beautiful and sacred as Kalaupapa the dangers and risk supersedes the chance of having an accident.

Re: Letter Goes Home to Kīhei Parents Amid Attempted Kidnapping Report
Posted by commenter#37 on 12/16/2017 6:18pm

A group of alcoholics and drug addicts hang out on the green area by the bike path on Liloa. The Kihei elementary kids have to pass through them on their way to school. Why does the county allow them to get high there? The police know about this as they pass by them on there way to their lunch breaks at the Safeway food court.

I hope they take a close look at this firebug, it’s likely not his first arson.
Over a million dollars in destruction!
I hope the punishment will be severe.

Back in the old days, there wasn't a need for the justice system. Parents took responsibility, and we called it DISCIPLINE.

Thanks Nailbanger. Greatly appreciate additional sources. Heads are definitely spinning and we definitely dodged the bullet with DT. If not for our President we would never hear about anything that's currently happening. Have no fear and have faith. Actually some time ago I "signed out" from Communist regime, extremely difficult times and an average teen would never believe the true meaning of communism on daily basis...people in this country have to wake up once and for all and realize that if HRC was our leader we would have no country.
and yes practice practice practice 9mm hahaha

The president and CEO of the conservative advocacy group The Family Leader is calling on Congress to investigate the allegations of sexual assault and harassment against President Donald Trump by more than a dozen women. The top conservative activist endorsed Republican Sen. Ted Cruz in the 2016 presidential election. “I think if these ladies need to be heard on this," he said.
Trump about beauty pageants on Howard Stern's show - “You know they’re standing there with no clothes. You see these incredible looking women. I sort of get away with things like that.”

Check out conservative treehouse lots of good articles and people who are actually awake, all factual, interesting commentary too, they have a good take on DJTs direction as far as dealing with trade, etc, i find its best to just stay away from MSM, Drudge is a good spot to get the basic jist of the bs that the libs are pushing, Matt links all the news, libtard or otherwise if its important, another good read is the Woodpile Report, Remus' writings are good commentary and will get your head nodding to what he says, or at least an eyebrow raise.
Trump basicly says and tweets the stuff normal folks think, it isnt a secret, he isnt a polititian, he wasnt elected because he was the best, he was elected because he was the biggest middle finger to the establishment and all the snowflakes
Interesting times we are living in, i bet none of this ends well, im ready and more than willing to stand for our republic, i NEVER signed on to be part of a collectivist, socialist, progressive, communist, marxist country, and i will NEVER support such even if it means i die in a pile of brass,
I have basicly distanced myself from anyone i knew who outwardly identified as a liberal or hillery supporter or bernie supporter, i would rather have no friends than that kind of people, i have also pretty much turned down work from the overt snowflakes who were in need of my services, no thanks, not interested.
Our republic was built on very specific principals, anyone who says otherwise is delusional,
Who is John Galt!

So very proud of that child! Our children took the bus to/from school and would walk home from the stop. We told them if there was ever an emergency and we had to send someone to meet them, it would be someone that they knew and they would have a secret code word to tell them it was OK to go with them. Our code word was handsoap. (Picked by my youngest son). We never had to use it when they were little but we use it now 25 years later when we are snorkeling and see something cool so the tour boat snorkelers don’t swarm us. As in “ hey come over here there is handsoap hiding under that rock about to surface”.
