Hawaii GOP disavows their bigoted candidate for launching a holy war against Hindu Rep Tulsi Gabbard

Published

on

The chair of the Republican party of Hawaii is urging fellow party members to disavow his own congressional candidate in the 2nd District after the GOP candidate attacked Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) for her religion and faith.

GOP candidate Angela Kaaihue issued a press release last week saying that Gabbard and former Congresswoman Colleen Hanabusa “worship the devil,” and called the Democratic Party the “Devil Democratic State.” Her meme, that has since been deleted from her Facebook page, read in part, “Some Christians say, a vote for Tulsi Gabbard is a vote for Satan, the devil do you agree or disagree?”

“Then Hawaii, YOU can have YOUR so-called ‘perfect’ pathetic Hindu 1000 GODS leader along with YOUR pathetic ‘career politician’ Buddhist Hanabusa, and your pathetic American Traitor, And my family and I will go our merrily way,” Kaaihue said according to the Honolulu Civil Beat.

“I am talking about God, preaching about God, restoring his kingdom back into Hawaii,” she said in an interview Saturday. “This is God’s country, America is God’s country. I am trying to educate people about that.”

The Republican party chair was quick to attempt to dissociate his party from her attacks. “I want it understood by the general public and the media that the recent inflammatory comments made by candidate for Congress (CD2) Angela Kaaihue do not represent the views, values, or the sentiments of our Party and its members,” GOP chair Fritz Rohlfing said in a release. “Her vulgar, racially-bigoted, and religiously-intolerant descriptions of Democratic Party candidates are offensive, shameful, and unacceptable in public discourse.”

Kaaihue shot back that the party chair should be cautious because he’s attacking the “messenger of God.”

“The biggest liar and deceiver is Satan, the Devil. To call one a racist bigot, when they have taken over our America, GOD’s Country, and while most people do nothing, and allow it to happen, YOU are guilty for NOT standing up for GOD,” the word-salad on Facebook continued. “The biggest liar to call one a Racist Bigot! Take a stand for GOD, Christianity is the birth religion of America.”

She further alleged that the state’s GOP is identifying themselves as “taking the mark of the beast.”

The Texas-born woman further condemned a “local dumb mentality,” claiming if “my neighbor Gov. Ige and his Japanese constituents” would settle a legal dispute over some land that she would drop out of the race.

‘Russia is delighted’: Maddow says the elephant in the room is ‘rearing up and stomping its feet’

Published

on

The host of "The Rachel Maddow Show" on MSNBC broke down how all of President Donald Trump's decisions in the Ukraine scandal primarily benefited Russia.

"We are in the middle of this impeachment now and it is still unfolding and there is still more to learn and tomorrow is going to be — tomorrow should be a big deal," Maddow noted. "Even just the news tonight is a big deal."

"But even after one day of public hearings so far, the elephant in the room here feels like it’s rearing up and stomping its feet, because who benefits with all these things Trump has done?" Maddow asked. "With all of them. With all this stuff in the middle of the impeachment, but all the other stuff he’s doing simultaneously."

Trump begs Louisiana for a ‘big win’ after his last-minute rally in Kentucky backfired

Published

on

At his last-ditch rally in Louisiana to help the struggling gubernatorial candidacy of GOP businessman Eddie Rispone, President Donald Trump boasted — incorrectly — that his rally in Kentucky narrowed the gap for Gov. Matt Bevin, who lost the race, by 19 points. He then begged voters to give Rispone a "big win."

"We elected everybody," said Trump. "The governor got brought up, in a few short days, 19 points. I went, we made a speech, the whole ticket was there, everybody won big. Governor's a really good guy. But 19 points is a big thing, and he lost by just a few thousand votes. And the headlines next day, Trump took a loss — I lifted him up a lot. But Trump took a loss. So you gotta give me a big win, please, okay? Okay?"

Roger Stone’s health in question as prosecutors have him ‘dead to rights’: NBC reporter

Published

on

Jurors deciding the fate of longtime Donald Trump political advisor Roger Stone did not reach a verdict during their deliberations on Thursday and will reconvene on Friday morning.

But there were fascinating details from the courtroom revealed by NBC News correspondent Ken Dilanian.

"What about Roger Stone, does he look like he’s about to burn here?" MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews asked. "Does he look like he’s going down?"

"He does," Dilanian replied.

"And also, physically, he doesn't look well at this trial. He’s walking around the courthouse kind of unaccompanied, shambling around," he continued. "He doesn't look like a happy warrior, which is usually his persona."
