Local Hawaiians have called upon some of Maui’s resident billionaire class to help them as wildfires devastate areas of the island beyond recognition. Jeff Bezos, Oprah, and Larry Ellison represent some of the biggest names to have homes on the island paradise along with Clint Eastwood, Steven Tyler, and Mick Fleetwood of Fleetwood Mack. Since the outbreak of the devastating fire on Tuesday, which has claimed over 50 lives while leaving hundreds homeless, residents have been openly asking for help. (Video) Lauren Sanchez, the fiancée of Jeff Bezos, who owns a $78 million property on Maui, issued a statement on her social media in which she called the tragedy “heartbreaking”

I don't know, # 2, what kind of fire was that? Was it arson? Who did it? I honestly don't think it was an act of nature. And those people do need help. They've lost everything. Maybe Biden could send a billion over there instead of all the billions to Ukraine.

We'll see who rises to the occasion. Whatever you might think about Bezos, he has resources available to him that could probably help alleviate suffering faster than any boneheaded government effort. Any odds on whether Biden shows his face?

Native Hawaiians should just take back their ancestral land and confiscate the properties of the rich; stop begging them for help. Call it a riot or something; that's what they do. The faux president just confiscated a bunch of land somewhere out West. Most of the land that has been confiscated was done so in the name of the native people, but we all know it's about a few people owning the world and bossing everyone around so they can live extremely well while we don't. Greedy, wannabe God pigs.

I was In Lahaina not 2 years ago- destination wedding for my child… I fell in love with Lahaina.. beautiful old city with so much history.. now decimated by fire.. The speed at which the fire traveled was so scary- however it started , there are now thousands of people left with nothing- and many lives lost. We do know the Rules for Radicals will be used- why act surprised?

Hawaii is run by dems. Dems live by the "Let George do it," philosophy. We all saw it when the mayor of the town that lost 27 (and counting) people just drove by a woman's body instead of stopping to even check if she were still alive! Let George do it was what the men in the car basically said as they drove past her.

When there are fires in any other of the 49 states the cause is always identified (accurately or not) as soon as the talking heads begin to speak. What was the spark? Climate change ain't the spark. If you need to gaslight the masses this is the way to do it. Ignore the missing spark and drone on and on about an impossible contributing factor - that didn't start the fire. Then go on the media as a "native" - in Hawaii natives are people who have visited the island for more than a few days in a row - and beg for money.

Republican Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas took to Twitter to sound off on Friday’s news that the Department of Justice (DOJ) moved to refile tax-related charges against Hunter Biden in a different venue after his plea deal fell apart in Delaware. The DOJ announced Friday that it would voluntarily vacate two tax charges against Hunter Biden without prejudice in order to refile the charges in the Central District of California or in Washington, D.C, rather than in Delaware. Cotton suggested that the DOJ moved to refile the charges against President Joe Biden’s son so that a more sympathetic judge adjudicates the matter and signs off on a lenient deal

Attorney General Merrick Garland’s appointment of U.S. Attorney David Weiss of Delaware as Special Counsel to investigate Hunter Biden contradicts federal regulations requiring that a special counsel be chosen from outside the government. However, it would not be the first time that an Attorney General had ignored those regulations. In 2003, U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald was appointed as Special Counsel in the Valerie Plame affair. He was appointed by Deputy Attorney General James Comey, who would later depart from procedure and regulations in announcing that Hillary Clinton would not be prosecuted.

Most Americans who have committed what Hunter allegedly did go to prison for years. US Attorney David Weiss has been selected to spearhead this effort (via NBC News):

Britain slept in the 1930s as an inevitable war with Hitler loomed. A lonely Winston Churchill had only a few courageous partners to oppose the appeasement and incompetence of his conservative colleague Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain. One of the most stalwart truth-tellers was a now little remembered politico and public servant Leo Amery, a polymath and conservative member of Parliament.

Adams slammed border states for creating a “funnel” to New York on “CBS Mornings” Thursday, saying, “New York City is the economic engine of this entire state and country. If you decimate this city, you’re going to decimate the foundation of what’s happening.” That foundation finally began to crumble earlier this month as dozens of migrants were left sleeping on the streets of Midtown outside the intake center at the Roosevelt Hotel

It also had an ongoing firebug problem, and recent academic study warning that the place was very vulnerable to fire catastrophes. Somehow, none of that figured in the government's fire plan. The firebug is still out there. The conditions created for big fires, such as the proliferation of non-native grasses, remain on Maui. And the fancy emergency warning system somehow didn't work. Never mind any of that: Its governor says the problem is global warming.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders quietly funneled $200,000 from his campaign's coffers to his wife's nonprofit institute, which appears to do very little work and pays six figures' worth of compensation to her son, Fox News Digital has found. The independent senator's committee cut two $100,000 checks to the Sanders Institute for reported charitable contributions in January and March, its Federal Election Commission records show. The expenditures are the largest from the Sanders campaign to any entity this election cycle. The senator's wife, Jane O'Meara Sanders, and stepson, David Driscoll, co-established the Sanders Institute in 2017 to act as a think tank to promote progressive voices, The Washington Post wrote at its launch.
