AGAIN: Family Court Gave Another Girl to Another Convicted Felon, She was also starved and tortured to death

Naming Names: Which Honolulu Lawyers are Helping Miske Catch Informants?

ILind: … It appears Miske referred associates to his favored attorneys when they were in legal trouble, and at times even paid their legal fees. And then Miske used his association with these attorneys to learn whether others were in fanger of “flipping” or not….

The government pointed to a series of messages exchanged via WhatsApp in February 2018, where Miske told Jake Smith, who became a cooperating witness, that he was “just leaving doctors office now,” accompanied by a photo of the entrance to the office suite where Otake, Kaneshiro, Lynn Panagakos, also a member of the defense team, and other attorneys all shared space.

In the text messages, Miske said the “doctors” had told him that another member of the Miske Enterprise, Jake Bermudez, was “flipping,” and said, “I seen the paperwork.”

“I wouldn’t take any calls from anybody inside if I were you guarantee it’s going to be recorded,” Miske wrote.

A document filed by Panagakos as an exhibit contains the text string.

Miske and Smith used coded conversation to discuss Lance Bermudez a.k.a. “Hanmah” and the possibiity that he would cooperate with law enforcement. Miske and Smith discussed Bermudez’ change of attorney fron “Jason” (believed to be Jason Burke) to “Mb” (believed to be Myles Breiner), the attorney who represented Lindsey Kinney.

Miske asked Smith to let Bermudez know “they only trying get him to flip on something he had nothing to do with”.

Smith asked Miske why he did’t get Scott, a corrupt ACO who assisted Miske, to pass the message to Bermudez.

“Idk he no even call me for like a month,” Miske replied….

The specific questions asked about name “Alii” on Miller’s contact lists suggests this is likely to come up again later in the trial….

Inciong introduced a text message string between Miller and Tom Otake, whose name was also on his list.

“Alen said you wanted me to call you,” Otake wrote. “I’m in court now, but later this afternoon.”

Miller responded, “OK, just call me whenever you can.”

Alen was a reference to attorney Alen Kaneshiro, a defense attorney who works (or perhaps formerly worked) out of the same office at 841 Bishop Street as several other attorneys, including Otake.

Miller described him as “one of my friends that helped me out with traffic tickets.”

“Did you have to pay him?” Inciong asked.

Miller replied that he wasn’t really charged attorneys fees. “I used to throw hin a couple of hundred bucks when I would see him,” Miller said.

Inciong asked Miller why he had been trying to reach Otake.

Miller explained he had been trying to make contact for someone else who had just been busted.

“I was reaching out to Tommy to see if he could check him out,” Miller said, adding that Alii had been arrested separately.

Alii Wilcox? And Otake ended up representing him? Yes, Miller replied to both.

So I dug around a bit, and found Justin Kaanoi Wilcox, A.K.A. Justin Alii Kaanoi, had been indicted along with eight others in September 2017 on federal charges of conspiring to distribute cocaine and methamphetimine. Wilcox/Kaanoi allegedly distributed multi-pound quanitites of both drugs through a multi-level network. He had three prior state felony drug convictions.

He retained Tom Otake to represent him in the case on November 2, 2017….

Article misrepresents status of Hawaii ballot bill

USAT: … Hawaii has not passed bill to remove Trump from 2024 presidential ballot….

A Feb.6 article by the Gateway Pundit claims legislation purportedly passed in Hawaii will heavily impact the upcoming presidential election.

"Hawaii Democrats Pass Bill to Remove President Trump from Ballot," reads the article's headline.

Similar versions of the claim were shared on Instagram, Facebook and X, formerly Twitter….

(CLUE: You are being exploited for clickbait.)

A bill that could disqualify Trump passed through its first vote in Hawaii's Senate and the Senate Judiciary Committee, but it still has to pass through several more votes in the Senate, House and committees before it could be signed into law by the governor….
