WaPo: As Hawaii Democrats battle, RGA goes up with ads
By Selected News Articles @ 8:46 PM :: 7506 Views :: Energy, Environment, National News, Ethics

Three months after Rep. Charles Djou (R-Hawaii) won a key special election in one of the blue state's two House districts, the RGA is signaling that it thinks it can win that state's governor's race too.

The TV and radio ads are 100 percent positive and don't mention Lt. Gov. Duke Aiona's (R) Democratic opponents. They feature Aiona himself and talk about his efforts to control drugs in the state.

The Obama Elite vs The American People
By Heritage Foundation @ 1:35 PM :: 6323 Views :: Energy, Environment, National News, Ethics

This Tuesday voters in Missouri, by a 40-point margin, approved a ballot measure rejecting the individual mandate at the core of President Barack Obama's health care law. Asked what the vote meant to the White House, press secretary Robert Gibbs said: "Nothing." Yesterday in San Francisco, federal judge Vaughn Walker gave the exact same weight to a California ballot measure that affirmed marriage as an institution between one man and one woman. Specifically Judge Walker overturned the California Marriage Protection Act after concluding, as a matter of fact, that the majority of Californians who voted to protect marriage were bigots who had no rational basis to define marriage on their own terms.

By Andrew Walden @ 3:44 PM :: 9422 Views :: Energy, Environment, National News, Ethics

Dan Inouye be next?  The US Senate equivalents of the Waters charges could easly be brought to bear against him if the political will exists.  While Waters was allegedly seeking help for her husband’s bank, Inouye allegedly sought help for Central Pacific Bank.  At the time, CPB stock made up an estimated 66% of Inouye’s personal net worth.

Lingle: Bar Association refuses to state its reasons for ‘unqualified’ ratings
By Gov. Linda Lingle @ 12:51 AM :: 5039 Views :: Energy, Environment

“The Hawai‘i State Bar Association’s (HSBA) ‘unqualified’ ratings of Judge Katherine Leonard and Judge Faauuga To‘oto‘o are outrageous and are clearly not based on the legal experience and qualifications of these two highly qualified nominees,” said Governor Lingle.

“The State Bar Association’s review process was unfair, flawed, and conducted under a veil of secrecy, with no accountability to the public.  The HSBA has refused to state its reasons for its ratings.

“It is impossible to know whether there is political, gender or ethnic bias on the part of the HSBA, since they refuse to state their reasons.

RTTT National Standards: Districts’ Head-fake to grab federal cash?
By Heritage Foundation @ 10:37 PM :: 5611 Views :: Energy, Environment, National News, Ethics

Adoption of national standards by states appears to be only an attempt to gain federal grants—not real reform. But in taking Washington’s money, are states sacrificing their educational autonomy for short-term budgetary security?

By Andrew Walden @ 3:44 AM :: 16735 Views :: Kauai County, DHHL, Maui County, Education K-12, Energy, Environment, National News, Ethics
