DHS: Green Appoints Political Hack to Oversee Department Overflowing with Dead Babies

Marijuana Legalization “relies on a huge criminal crackdown on the black market”

HNN: … “The bill relies on a huge criminal crackdown on the black market on people selling illegally, recreational marijuana and that amount of money that we’re going to need to hire all this officers to do all that crack down, it’s going to leave nothing left over for schools or any other government services,” he said….

$250K -- Another grift for Waianae Meth Camp

SA: … Pu‘uhonua O Wai‘anae received a $250,000 donation from the Oweesta Corp. to assist with the construction (charade) of “a permanent village of affordable homes in Waianae Valley,” the village announced Thursday.

Pu‘uhonua O Wai‘anae has a population of about 200 residents, two-thirds of whom are Native Hawaiian. The group (pretends to aim) aims to house 250 people at a reduced cost through its “community-first” model.

At least that is the picture that emerges from a stream of witnesses who have appeared in the racketeering trial of former Honolulu business owner, Michael J. Miske Jr., over the past couple of weeks.

In recent posts, I’ve described the assault of an employee of a competing termite treatment company, and the vicious attack on an M Nightclub bartender who Miske allegedly suspected of skimming cash from the bar.

The victim of another attack told his story to the jury this past week, with supporting testimony coming from responding police officers and medical personnel….
