Election Fraud in Hawaii: This Year, it is Trumpster Conspiracy Theories that help Nago Get Over

CB: … Elections Commission member Lillian Koller said during the public meeting on Zoom that the purpose was not so much a matter of questioning the outcome of the 2020 election — something that still continues nationally primarily by supporters of former President Trump. Rather, it was to make any necessary improvements to Hawaii’s voting system in time for future elections.

Koller also did not find a response earlier this week from Chief Elections Office Scott Nago to Lam’s latest concern satisfactory, suggesting at one point that it read like an apology for not being able to provide better answers.

(Translation: Every year some excuse is used to keep Nago.  This year the excuse is Trumpster conspiracy theories.)

The meeting Friday sometimes featured testy exchanges between commissioners.

There were complaints about fairly minor issues — for example, the loud buzzer that signaled a testifier’s three minutes were up — to more serious ones such as the desire from Koller that commission deliberations be conducted in public rather than in executive session.

Most of the meeting was public under the state Sunshine Law, but commissioners did go into executive session to discuss some matters.

It also appeared that, after deliberating over the Lam complaint for months now, patience was running out.

At one point Koller took umbrage with Anderson for implying that she was “a conspiracy nut.”

Anderson apologized, saying that was not his intent and that his main point was to express confidence in the answers that Nago and the four county clerks provided in response to Lam’s inquiries.

Koller said more time was needed to examine Lam’s concerns, which she said appeared substantive.

Lam wanted more time, too.

“Nice hearing. Way to bury the evidence,” he said in a text after the meeting concluded….

(Clue: Vote harvesting, exploited by Democrats, is encouraged, but in-person voting, favored by Republicans, is obstructed.  Thank Donald Trump’s conspiracy theories for making Republican voters that much easier to isolate.  And thank Trump’s followers for discussing anything except this very obvious discrimination.)

The ‘Miske Enterprise’: Trial For The Accused Crime Boss Is Being Postponed Again

CB: … Last month, Miske co-defendant Delia-Anne Fabro-Miske, through her attorney, John Schum, asked for the trial to be delayed in order to provide sufficient time to assess and evaluate the massive amount of evidence that has been turned over to the defendants and their attorneys in the process of discovery.

The trial, which had been set to begin in September, was originally scheduled to be held in September 2020, and had already been delayed delayed four previous times.

But following a hearing last week before Magistrate Judge Kenneth Mansfield, the trial has now been pushed back again, and is scheduled to begin with jury selection on April 17, 2023….

Chinatown: 800 Bums Leaving

SA: … Advocates for a safer, cleaner and more business-friendly Chinatown have agitated for years to end meal giveaways at the River of Life Mission headquarters on North Pauahi Street. On Thursday, after 35 years of operation at the site, River Of Life served its final meal there.

The faith-based non-profit is transitioning to a Mobile Meals and Ministry Program that will aim to serve people who are hungry and homeless at “hub spots” closer to those in need, in groups no larger than 50.

“We want to make clear that we’re not moving, we’re going mobile,” said pastor Paul Gates, River of Life’s executive director. “And no matter what community we go into, we want to be a good neighbor.”

(Translation: The enablers are metastasizing.)

The River of Life meals program has attracted an approximate 800 people daily over the course of a breakfast, lunch and dinner, the mission reports. It’s to be expected that drawing a few hundred fewer people to the area will put less stress on the area, and be less stressful for those who need a meal, as they will not need to find their way to the location….

Big Q:  Do you support the move by the River of Life Mission to stop feeding the homeless at its location in Chinatown?
