As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, the devastating wildfires across Maui are a classic toxic combination of liberalism, corruption and inexperience all rolled into one. The people of Maul begged for life-saving water from the West Maui stream to be used to fight the fires only to be brushed off. The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported Wednesday there was an official request made to divert the water and it was ignored for several hours by Deputy Director M. Kaleo Manuel of the Hawaii Commission on Water Resource Management Hawaii Commission on Water Resource Management (CWRM).

No, what is required for water is availability. If available, you have a mind and two hands to figure out your equity portion.

My neighbor, who was an electrician and a union man, told me he always voted Democrat. Now that he's retired, he's voting Republican. Say what?! Then I realized the voters in Hawaii are a bunch of idiots. The proof in my statement is the politicians "stuck on Stupid" running the State. Indeed they were the reflections of the voters who put them there. Left the island six years ago to avoid stupid.

FTA, last line: 'No wonder the Hawaii state government is trying to cover up their actions before and after the fires. Blood is all over their hands.' Or maybe they wanted those people off their land, so they can sell or repurpose it; sort of a creative twist on Kelo eminent domain.

"The government" is not our enemy. "The government" is not a sentient being. It is an Organized Crime Syndicate. Our true enemies are the criminally insane sociopaths and psychopaths that work in government and use the levers of illegitimate government power to advance their tyrannical personal agendas. Whenever "government" does evil, it is actually an individual giving the order. Find out who they are. Usually some faceless bureaucrat in a cubicle in the seventh sub-basement of some soviet-style concrete block office building who has a personal vendetta against normal human beings.

After an extensive terrorism investigation in Philadelphia, on Friday, Aug. 11, a jihadi was arrested who was, according to the FBI and Philly officials, planning major jihad massacres, not just in Philadelphia, but around the nation. He had access to guns and was building bombs. Adding to the shock of this was the fact that the young man who was arrested was only seventeen years old, and yet he now stands accused of plotting what the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office said was “the most serious alleged terrorist activity prosecuted in Philadelphia County court in recent history.” Even more shocking, it later came to light that he is the son

We all know what an October Surprise is. It’s when a rival campaign (or its supporter), right before the election, releases damaging information about an opponent. The idea is to expose the politician when it’s too late for him to recover, giving the candidate whose team released the information a clear path to victory. Always feared, sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn’t. As the number of inane indictments of Trump demonstrates, the Democrats will do virtually anything to keep Donald Trump from ever again occupying the White House and threatening the Swamp’s grip on the throats of the American people.

In 2012, Barack Obama famously made the cover of Newsweek magazine with the heading, “The First Gay President.” That headline, meant in jest, now seems more than a little prescient. Much publicity has been given in recent weeks to Barack Obama’s very real homosexual fantasies. These were communicated in a letter to girlfriend Alex McNear in 1982, when Obama was in his early twenties. These comments were first included in the paperback version of David Garrow’s 2017 biography, Rising Star, and later amplified in Jack Cashill’s 2020 book, Unmasking Obama, but news of Obama’s gay ruminations is only now breaking through to mainstream media.

Emulating the Biden administration’s Department of Justice’s special counsel, Jack Smith, once again a partisan local Democratic prosecutor in a one-party jurisdiction has stretched state laws to indict a former president from their opposing party who is also the leading candidate for its 2024 nomination.

The New York Times and Politico published a pair of lengthy stories detailing the collapse of Hunter Biden's plea deal over the weekend, and they're packed with extraordinary details. It seems likely that members of the president's son's legal team acted as sources for both pieces -- which offer a series of jaw-dropping claims about what was happening behind the scenes before the wrist-slap agreement disintegrated in open court, as the result of a simple question from the presiding judge. Early in the Times story, I had to re-read this sentence: "The deal’s collapse — chronicled in over 200 pages of confidential correspondence

Barr said Trump’s conduct related to the classified documents stored at Mar-a-Lago is “egregious.” “I think the federal cases are legitimate.

Imagine if the United States treated China in the same way it does us.

What if the American government targeted Chinese industries by dumping competing American export products below the cost of production -- to bankrupt Chinese competitors and corner their markets? What would the communist Chinese government do if a substantial American spy balloon lazily traversed continental China -- sending back to the United States photographic surveillance of Chinese military bases and installations?

Poor Fani. Her moment of glory will be a short one. Lawyers tell us that Fani’s case against President Trump is likely to be moved to a federal court -- because it is directed at federal officials and because the accusations are very similar to those made by Jack Smith in the January 6th indictments. In the end, however, Fani may be happy to let the feds conduct the trial because some of the 161 “Acts of Racketeering” (ACTs) in the indictment involve dangerous criminals doing dangerous things.

The former president previously indicated that he would be skipping the first debate, which is set to take place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on Wednesday.

That comes after devastating fires left over a hundred people confirmed dead with nearly a thousand still missing, including what is assumed to be many children.
