Political Discussion / Shadow War QAnon #WWG1WGA
« on: January 15, 2019, 01:16:30 PM »
I admit I am slow to the party.

I have only recently really looked into what is going on.

I took a kind of hiatus because of information overload.

Anyway, maybe we need a thread on this.

Preparedness and Survival / Satellite internet for SHTF?
« on: January 11, 2019, 10:01:02 AM »
Aloha, does anyone here have any info or experience with satellite internet service?

Specifically, for island-wide power outage lasting 1 or more days.

I need it for my work (need to check emails, etc.).

It seems like there's the Inmarsat service (Iridium seems not to have good coverage for our specific location on the planet, the latitude) and then there's "exede" (?) service which maybe people use for their regular internet instead of cable/DSL?

Political Discussion / 2018 OHA candidates OAHU

Sam King is the only one with a good answer:

4. What are your views regarding Hawaiian independence?

If this refers to independence from the United States, I do not think that is a good idea. The U.S. is the greatest country in human history, and Hawaii has outsized influence over U.S. policy. We have two senators in Congress for our small population, giving each Hawaiian voter a larger impact. Currently we get billions of dollars from the federal government, and I’ve yet to see an independence plan that would be more beneficial to the Hawaiian people.

Additionally, what would we do with independence? Who would lead us? Would we restrict our leadership pool based on race? Would those race-based leaders subject themselves to the kinds of audits that exposed the waste and abuse at OHA this year? There are too many unknowns to make this a viable plan.


I have no info on the At-Large candidates and will abstain from voting for them, unless someone else has info and can post guidance here.

Political Discussion / 2018 VOTING - City and County
« on: August 08, 2018, 11:09:39 AM »
See other thread on Governor (Tupola) and Lieuytenant Governor (Low) - these choices are simple. A ratings from NRA.

City and County, none of the candidates look good.

However, the LEAST BAD seems to be HUSSEY.

I read these:

https://www.civilbeat.org/2018/07/candidate-qa-honolulu-city-council-district-6-ikaika-hussey/

Links are on that webpage to the other candidates.

All of them are bad.

I had wanted to see if any candidate supported vacation rentals (e.g., AirBNB) because this is fundamental to property rights (you own property, you do what you want with it).

But they all reject it and want legislation to restrict usage by property owner.

On Sit/Lie, I wanted to see if anyone rejected it, and they all seem to do so but only Hussey specifically called it out as "cruel" and he also would "draft and support legislation requiring that all government documents be published automatically to the web, with “publicly viewable” as the default setting."

That is simple, direct, no-BS runaround talk.

He also seems skeptical about Rail but doesn't outright say it: "Rail, if designed and executed correctly to meet commuter needs, will help to lessen traffic."

STODDARD seemed "nice" with many great ideas, but he also seemed to be a bit naive and I am not sure if he is aggressive enough to get things done.

Only thing I am not sure about for HUSSEY is that he is Chair of this thing called Men's March Against Violence, which sounds a bit liberal ditzy. Could be wrong. I tried briefly to read about it but couldn't understand what it was really for.

Let all your socialist loving friends watch this.

I think those interviewees sometimes laugh because they have been so mentally traumatized since childhood, it's a survival reaction.

"The net result of these technologies is that we are forgoing our personal privacy and our personal autonomy and even sovereignty as humans and relinquishing that to a combination of state, harvesters of big data, omnipresent institutions and systems."

The Central Intelligence Agency is able to permanently infect an Apple Mac computer so that even reinstalling the operating system will not erase the bug, according to documents published Thursday by WikiLeaks.

Political Discussion / Is the Deep State in control?
« on: February 28, 2017, 12:48:40 PM »
Interesting article.

Quote
Revenge of the Deep State

The unseen government within the government has so much data on Americans that it can reward or punish at its own discretion.

Last week, The Wall Street Journal revealed that members of the intelligence community — part of the deep state, the unseen government within the government that does not change with elections — now have acquired so much data on everyone in America that they can selectively reveal it to reward their friends and harm their foes. Their principal foe today is the president of the United States.

Liberty is rarely lost overnight. The wall of tyranny often begins with benign building blocks of safety — each one lying on top of a predecessor — eventually collectively constituting an impediment to the exercise of free choices by free people, often not even recognized until it is too late.

Here is the back story.

In the pre-Revolutionary era, British courts in London secretly issued general warrants to British government agents in America. The warrants were not based on any probable cause of crime or individual articulable suspicion; they did not name the person or thing to be seized or identify the place to be searched. They authorized agents to search where they wished and seize what they found.

No need to actually read the article.

But look at the friggin' headline

The minute-by-minute breakdown of the shocking ‘Moonlight’/‘La La Land’ best picture mix-up

This is the kind of shit that so many people are totally wrapped up in. Most of them voted Trump of course.

I kinda skipped over this news when it first came out, but this article is a really fascinating read.

Makes you wonder why are there so many NK agents running around outside NK!

And what does this mean to geopolitical stability?

Oh, I guess since Snopes says it is fake, it must be huh.

All the MSM is saying it is fake now. I bet Trump is going to release facts on this later.

Off Topic / Happy to agree to disagree
« on: February 10, 2017, 10:30:56 AM »
Just want to say that despite not agreeing with fellow members' viewpoints on here, I have the utmost respect for everyone who is seriously debating issues (as opposed to those who are not serious about it).

Nobody here is going to 100% agree with me on every issue, and I won't agree 100% with others either.

The only time when everyone is going to 100% agree is when we all live under communism and don't dare disagree.
