John Kasich for President in 2020? Please Go Away, RINO Johnnie!

John Kasich.

The governor of Ohio has to sign off on conservative reforms because of a hard-core, supermajority Republican legislature.

As Presidential contender, all he wanted to do was make nice and preach hollow niceties all while abandoning conservative principles and pushing a smarmy liberalism that taxes us into oblivion and forcing higher spending.

Give me a break.

Check out this report from Kyle Plantz of the New Hampshire Insider:


The flurry of activity in the Granite State this week has some calling it the start of the 2020 New Hampshire primary. Former Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley held some meet-and-greets and a town hall meeting on Sunday, and former Vice President Joe Biden is headlining the state Democratic Party’s fundraising dinner on April 30. Smack dab in the middle of the two Democrats is Republican Gov. John Kasich, who visited the state on Thursday to promote his new book.

It felt like a reunion of sorts for Kasich, his team, and over 200 supporters who came to hear him speak at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics at Saint Anselm College. In a small gathering before his speech, he thanked key allies for their help during the 2016 Republican presidential primary. Even though Kasich was in the state in August to campaign for Gov. Chris Sununu in his gubernatorial bid, it’s his first foray back to New Hampshire since Trump won the White House.

John Kasich is now the anti-Trump Establishment favorite.

They can control him, they know that he will make nice and play along with special interests, including the Chamber of Commerce Main Street Crowd.

He wants to grant amnesty to 11 million illegal aliens. He has already jumped in bed with the Big Green renewable energy lobby, which is more government subsidy than energy independence.

And he's the outgoing governor of Ohio, the swing state which old-timey Republican operatives still see as the swing of all swing states, and the lynchpin for any future national efforts.



He also lasted slightly longer than Ted Cruz, whom the Republican Establishment loathed just as much as Trump.

Of course, there was an elephant in the room (and not just because the room was chock full of Republicans): is Kasich going to run for president again in 2020? Those waiting with bated breath will have to wait a bit longer.

“People ask why I am back,” Kasich said. “I am back to sell books.”

Selling books? Romney played the same game shortly after his losing 2008 bid for the Presidency. In 2012, he had tried to tack a similar line and failed. The working-class white vote which Trump scooped up and won with did not turn out for Romney.

The Evangelical vote also sat out the election.

Remember that the Chamber of Commerice, Big Business phalanx of the Republican Party wanted Romney and also wanted Jeb in 2016, then switched to Kasich, who in turn complied with their demands for cheaper labor and corporate cronyism.

His new book, “Two Paths: America Divided or United,” came out on Tuesday and one of his first stops in his book tour was New Hampshire, so it’s easy to see where the 2020 speculation comes from.

He mostly talked about his 2016 campaign and national politics, with some advice to his followers who are unhappy with President Donald Trump.

“In course of running for president, something happened to me that never happened before,” he said. “I was, like, so boring, you know, and boring didn’t cut it.”

Kasich finished second in last year’s first-in-the-nation presidential primary, far behind Trump (35 percent to 16 percent). Yet, Kasich spent more time in the state than any other candidate, holding more than 100 town halls during the primary.

Still for all of that work, Kasich came up short.

100 town halls, and he barely edged into second place, and kept other candidates at bay against Donald Trump. It's not surprise, since Kasich was out of touch with the desires of the Republican base as well as the growing concerns of the general American electorate. Would Kasich have had any kind of chance of winning Pennsylvania? Wisconsin?

Nope. He did not respect the guns and the Bibles of the same Middle America which Obama had scorned two months before Election Day 2008.

Now he wants to sell books. Lets see what the sales turn out to be ...


Kasich is still popular in the Granite State, and he said he had a feeling he would return often because he has many friends here, so he could become a regular face in these parts over the next three years.

What about this book?


In Two Paths: America Divided or United, Kasich blamed Trump’s electoral win on groups ranging from the media to dishonest politicians, but he also said one of the main reasons Trump won was because of the spiritual decline in America.

Excuse me?

This coming from the same guy who said "I am past the gay marriage issue," who believed in the freedom of worship (restricting freedom of conscience) and incarceration of bakers and florists who don't want to assist the celebration of same-sex weddings.

For the record, the Evangelical vote exceeded by a wide margin the 2008 and the 2012 elections. Christian voters saw the damage done by the secularizing Obama Administration, and the imminent threats to the First Amendment. The wide phalanx of voters confronted the stark contrast and feared the worst should Wicked Hillary become President.

They voted their Bible. They demonstrated true religious fervor in voting for Trump.

Yet Kasich slams America's voters as suffers of moral decline.

Kasich the man is insufferable.

So much so, that national Republican officials have declared that they want nothing more to do with that selfish Ohio Governor. I don't blame them. Kasich is a "me-player" not a team player.

He's an insufferable liberal masuerading as a Republican. He shames conservatives and moderates with this religious veneer, while at the same time agreeing that freedom of conscience is not a right worth fighting for.

Whatever he may have done in Ohio, much of it rests on a conservative legislature which passed key bills to stop waste, fraud, and union abuse. For all ofhis well-placed attempts in the first two years of his tenure, he caved on too many issues afterwards. His influence in the Ohio state party has also waned, as his favorite to head the state party lost to Donald Trump's pick.

Honestly, though, a Kasich run may be just the thing to thoroughly demoralize the Big Business/Big Amnesty/Make Nice wing of the Republican National Committee.

Wouldn't that be great?





BREAKING: RINO-PLAC Blocks Republican Challenger to Maxine Waters on Twitter

What is going on in Los Angeles Republican circles?

The RINO Central Committee is attacking individual candidates.

Now they are blocking the individuals we are counting on to run against entrenched Democratic incumbents in Los Angeles County.



Look what RPLAC did to Omar Navarro, the First Vice-President of the Beach Cities Republicans:

The Republican Party of Los Angeles has definitely forgotten how to lead.

They certainly have no interest in winning elections.

They revoked the charter for the largest volunteer group in Los Angeles County.

They blocked me on Twitter, as did the former Chairman and now regional Vice-Chairman Mark Vafiades.

Now they have blocked Omar Navarro.



Unbelieveable.

But this perverse retaliation against Maxine Waters' star challenger did not go unnoticed:



When Hawaii reporters say that Republican circles are in trouble, you know that's bad!


And  there's more:


With friends like RPLAC, who needs enemies?



This is the sad state of Republican politics in Los Angeles County.

They can't win elections. They don't want to win elections, either.

And to add insult to injury, Omar Navarro is a member of the Central Committee ... and now the county Central Committee is blocking one of their own members--and also one of the rising stars in Los Angeles County running against ...


Hawaii RINOs Fired Bad GOP--But Forgot Tell Everyone Else!

SECRET EXPULSION:
Democrat Infiltrator Kymberly Pine-Ryglowski Ousted from Hawaii GOP


Aloha Republicans:

Hey, do you know what Miriam Hellreich, Pat Saiki, Fritz Rohlfing. Gene Ward, Jack James and their puppet party officers ALL HAVE IN COMMON??

Answer:  They love to keep SECRETS - party secrets which make Democrats and RINO's look bad.

Here's just one of several secrets that you MUST know about -- IF you want to understand WHY the GOP keeps losing in Hawaii and/or WHY voters (including island GOP voters) are so confused about island Republicans.

SECRET #1:
RINO's Just Can't Bring Themselves to Expel a Traitor
Following
HIRA's multiple stories documenting and exposing how the corrupt Honolulu City Councilwoman Kymberly Ryglowski (alias "Kym Pine" alias "Kym Marcos Pine") had been deliberately destroying the Republican Party from the inside, Mrs. Ryglowski was formally (though secretly) kicked out of the Hawaii GOP on a unanimous vote of the State Committee nearly five months ago at its meeting on 17 December 2016.

Thanks to the Hawaii GOP's RINO leadership of closet Democrats, this secret has been kept from you until today.  Now, thanks to HIRA, you know the truth . . . and, in a moment, the rest of the story.
In 2016,
HIRA repeatedly warned the party NOT to endorse or support corrupt Ryglowski (a.k.a. "Pine") because she had been publicly endorsing Democrats and donating very large sums of campaign money to Democrats on the ballot in 2016.  HIRA was ignored by RINO party leaders who chose to waste weeks of valuable campaign time and energy during Fall 2016 organizing special arm-twisting meetings of misinformed party leaders; lobbying them to whip votes in hopes of obtaining a public endorsement of Ryglowski (a.k.a. "Pine" a.k.a. "Marcos Pine") so the Hawaii GOP could help the tax-hiking, backstabbing, Democrat-supporting "Republican" and mayoral hopeful to win re-election to the Honolulu City Council.

While the news media and KHVH's talkradio host Rick Hamada were constantly referring to Ryglowski as a "Republican" based on serving several terms of office in the State House as a Republican and Tea Party leader, HIRA knew Pine's partisan affiliation had changed dramatically.  That's why HIRA continued exposing Ryglowski during 2016 as a fraud who was in the pocket of the Democrat Rail Cartel and the public employee unions.


Once the evidence became too overwhelming for even RINO party leaders to ignore, something had to be done to correct the record.  So, several weeks after the November 2016 General Election, party leaders began to wipe the egg off their faces; realizing they should have listened to HIRA, no matter how hard the blow to their fragile self-esteem.

That's why, at the 17 December 2016 meeting of the party's governing State Committee, a unanimous vote was taken to kick Ryglowski out of the Hawaii GOP . . . albeit to do so secretly at first, and then let promise to let party members and the public know later.

AUDIO BONUS:  Here are the last five minutes of that December meeting during which the matter of ousting Pine was discussed and then UNANIMOUSLY supported.



As you heard, following the unanimous vote of the State Committee, Ryglowski (alias "Pine") was given a deadline to reply on or before January 4th, after which the Hawaii GOP leaders were supposed to issue a press release alerting the media, the public, and the membership of the Republican Party that Pine was out.  That never happened.
To this day,
NEARLY FIVE MONTHS AFTER PINE WAS KICKED OUT OF THE GOP, Saiki, Hellreich, Rohlfing, Ward, James, Mukk and Ready REFUSE TO TELL THE WORLD ABOUT IT.  The promised press release never got sent.  Party members were never informed.  And Mrs. Ryglowski stands ready to continue using her years of kinship with Republicans (who are still none the wiser) to help Democrats destroy the Hawaii GOP even more . . . exploiting the memories of donors, volunteers, and supporters from her Republican days.

Yes, silent RINO party officers are deliberately allowing Pine-Ryglowski to get away with political murder to this very day.
Forget about the fact that the rules explicitly call for the State Committee to terminate Ryglowski's membership after she actively campaigned for Democrats to defeat Republican candidates in the 2016 election.

RINO's like Saiki, Hellreich and Rohlfing want to allow phony Republicans to retain their disguises so the assault on the Hawaii GOP can continue.  Just as we saw when closet Democrats like Boyd Ready publicly begged Beth Fukumoto to stay in the Republican fold -- "we need liberal voices" in the GOP, Ready cried.

Forget also about the fact that Pine's public affiliation with the Republican Party continued through 2016 and beyond with donations like this to the Hawaii Republican Party Building Fund in 2014 and to her RINO pal Bob McDermott.


In addition are the Pine donations in 2016 to full-blown RINO's Bob McDermott, Lauren Cheape, and Beth Fukumoto, alongside Pine's many, many donations to Democrats.

Because Pine has bought off these RINO's, screwed over the party, and whacked the state GOP's RINO party leaders senseless, these RINO officers haven't done a thing they said they would to set the record straight -- DESPITE the unanimous vote of the State Committee to do so by January 4th.

Only RINO's are unwilling to take appropriate measures after the Hawaii GOP got repeatedly kicked in the groin by a political traitor who donated thousands of dollars to Democrat opponents and publicly endorsed multiple Democrats; all of which went on to defeat multiple GOP candidates.

And thanks to fake Republican party officers like Boyd Ready, Fritz Rohlfing, Pat Saiki, Miriam, Hellreich and the rest, the party deliberately let Beth Fukumoto kick the Hawaii GOP in the groin for months and months without consequence; allowing Fukumoto to stage her exit from the GOP using taxpayer dollars to choreograph every moment and every groin kick.


Ironically, as already mentioned, party chair Rohlfing and his stooges wanted the Hawaii GOP to endorse Pine-Ryglowski even as she was endorsing and donating to multiple Democrat campaigns, including Caldwell.  Such bad judgement was proven to be even worse as Pine-Ryglowski led the effort to oust from power at Honolulu Hale all of Charles Djou's allies in his mayoral campaign.  Ernie Martin - OUT.  Ann Kobayashi - OUT.  Trevor Ozawa - OUT.  

Top GOP leaders know EXACTLY what they were doing when the let Democrats undermine the Hawaii GOP from the inside.  To the novice, it merely seemed that RINO party officers simply didn't know what to do about Pine and Fukumoto.  But the lack of proactivity by party leaders was deliberate.  Their refusal to take appropriate action when Ryglowski's support for Democrats was successful and Fukumoto's attacks on the GOP were successful was in keeping with RINO strategy.

ZERO TRANSPARENCY:  No matter who wins the leadership positions at the Kauai state convention in two weeks, both RINO camps have made it clear they will lie, cheat and steal to keep power and that they will keep island Republicans in the dark about absolutely everything to cover their RINO tracks.

You haven't heard from the Hawaii GOP about this Pine-Ryglowski situation because party RINO officers -- even those who hate each other like Rohlfing, Ready, James, Hellreich and Saiki -- agree on one point:  The Hawaii GOP should never make Democrats look bad.
This entire episode of secrecy shows how much the two RINO camps vying for control of the state party (
Team Rohlfing/James/Tupola and Team Hellreich/Saiki/Ostrov] have in common.  They seek to protect their fellow closet Democrats from exposure of the truth.  Shirlene Ostrov's campaign managers Pat Saiki and Miriam Hellreich have been conspiring with Tupola campaign leaders Fritz Rohlfing and Jack James and Boyd Ready to prevent any formal announcement from the Hawaii GOP that Pine-Ryglowski had been unanimously kicked off the party's membership roster.

Meanwhile, since this secret meeting at party headquarters on Kapiolani Blvd., Pine has continued to attack Republicans and the GOP with complete impunity, not to mention taxpayers.  Why would the Ostrov campaign and the Tupola campaign want to keep the revocation of Ryglowski's membership a secret?  What crazy liberal nonsense is the Oahu League of RINO Women up to?  How about the Tupola faction at the State Capitol?  Ultimately, these RINO's all collectively refuse to fight back.

This same sorry episode of preventing disclosure of Pine-Ryglowski's expulsion from the Hawaii GOP also speaks to how disconnected from political reality these RINO nimrods are.  Neither Team Rohlfing nor Team Hellreich are able to keep score by staying on top of the running total of how many Republicans are in office.
Flat-footed and incompetent
Boyd Ready says he had no idea Pine was no longer a Republican.  That's because Ready, like his RINO party friends, isn't plugged into the political scene enough to know if the party's incumbents or candidates are moving in the Democrat direction.  The party isn't tracking donations, tracking votes, tracking statements, or even keeping in touch with these politicians.  So, they are ALWAYS the last to know and the VERY LAST to figure out the ramifications.

THESE ARE TOTAL IDIOTS who do NOT have the party's best interests at heart. Democrats LOVE these loser GOP officers because they suck so badly.

Never forget that, right up until the last minute, RINO's like Boyd Ready were trying to keep Beth Fukumoto in the Republican fold, as if completely oblivious to what Fukumoto's game plan was.  Anyone with eyesight and hearing could see and hear that Fukumoto spent nearly an entire year as GOP Minority Leader using her position to make Republicans look bad in order to pave the way to a fruitful career as a Democrat.  But Rohlfing, Ready, Hellreich and Saiki let Fukumoto do to the Hawaii GOP what they let Pine-Ryglowski did during most of 2016.

And WHO exactly is Kym Ryglowski?  Kirk Caldwell's heir apparent and daughter of a white community college teacher (
who uses an invented stage name or pseudonym "Kymberly Marcos Pine" designed to appeal to Filipino voters, even though there is no "Marcos" in her name), is a local politician from Ewa Beach who still owes taxpayers tens of thousands of tax dollars that she and her office employees stole while working at the State Capitol.  To date, Pine-Ryglowski refuses to reimburse the State and taxpayers.  And Democrat attorney general Doug Chin has been more interested in helping Middle Easterners and illegal immigrants move to Hawaii than in helping to put crooked politicians behind bars.

Finally, thanks to HIRA, it no longer remains a guarded secret that HRP finally acted after months and months of HIRA's warnings to kick Kym Pine out of the GOP.

Stay tuned for more secrets of the downward-spiraling, RINO-controlled Hawaii GOP.

In the meantime, don't waste your time or money going to Kauai or going to the Lincoln Dinner.  There are much better ways to help the Republican movement in Hawaii.

The BEST of all ways to help the Republican movement is supporting the Hawaii Republican Assembly and HIRA Action.

HIRA's officers and members are pleased to help Republicans get the information they need to take back their party from RINO's, liberals and closet Democrats . . . even though the desperate circling of wagons and pathetic lashing out by RINO's in retributions causes the faint at heart to cover their ears and hide their eyes.

Eventually, when the shocking truth is fully understood by those now in denial that our party is run by those whose sympathies lie with the Democrat Party, its politicians and its policies, the Hawaii GOP will emerge stronger and finally ready to take on the Democrat Machine in the Aloha State.

Thanks and God Bless Hawaii.

Mahalo,

Ann Coulter: Not Showing UP for Free Speech is a Cultural Shutdown

I have been hard on Ann Coulter in the past.

I once called her “The Incredible Shrinking Ann Coulter” because of her vicious—and sometimes vulgar—attacks on long-term Presidential favorite Ted Cruz. She was right about Trump, though I still give Senator Cruz mad props for fighting the good fight. His latest legislative insight, civil asset forfeiture of Mexican Drug Lord El Chapo’s billions for the wall—is pure gold.



Coulter has written very provocative statements, and one tweet got her fired from National Review. On the flip side, she has written some of the most penetrating and erudite political studies, and never once has she feared bucking trends and upending narratives. For this reason, among others, I joined with Los Angeles County for Trump as well as other social media stars like Baked Alaska, Tim Pool, and Shuttershot45 to see Ann Coulter give a riveting speech about illegal immigration and our government’s needs to enforce its immigration laws.

Wednesday morning, in the Encino/Universal City section of Los Angeles, I was getting primed to join her in the culture war for freedom of speech. Friends and fellow fighters from throughout Los Angeles County were ready for another rumble in the hotbed of liberalism. Then the news trickled in: Ann Coulter was cancelling her speech, citing security concerns. The announcement overwhelmed social media like a deluge: her sponsors backed out, her legal team would not defend her, and the Berkeley police signaled that they would not be able to protect her.



I could not believe this. I had read one week ago that Coulter was the last conservative with guts. Then she backs out. What an epic fail. Ben Shapiro wrote the next day: Fascism Wins. Coulter joined Tucker Carlson later that night to explain the situation. I was left unimpressed. Whether anyone realizes it or not, freedom of speech faces unprecedented assault, especially in institutions where one would expect its sanctity to remain defended and inviolable. Churches, charities, and small businesses face lawsuits, threats, and bankruptcy for voicing their concerns and standing by their religious convictions. College Republican/conservative cubs must pay hefty security fees and assume all liability costs—which they can’t, so they don’t showcase keynote conservative speakers.
The assault on free speech has hit Main Street, too.

I have attended town halls and city council meetings throughout Southern California. When I called out the Mayor of Anaheim, CA Tom Tait for violating the Brown Act and for not enforcing the rules of decorum, I was thrown out. Aggressive liberals have invaded town halls, yelling and jeering for every time on the check-list of socialist goals. They don’t get sanctioned or thrown out. When I called out card-carrying Communist Congresswoman Judy Chu (D-Pasadena) for her numerous ethical violations, the rogue police immediately escorted out. Before that, they had ordered me to remove a banner on my shoulders because it violated the town hall rules of decorum, when it actually didn’t.
This is fascism with a smile on its face, folks, and it’s time for our leaders as well as the followers to take a stance. I will not be silent.



And neither should have Ann Coulter.

So, Los Angeles County for Trump took a private limousine-bus up to the People’s Republic of Berkeley, ready for anything, with or without Queen Anne. On the way up, we stopped in Central and Northern California, where so many Trump supporters came up to us. They embraced our passion and courage. The same refrain came out of their mouths: “I didn’t know there were other Trump supporters in California.” Especially in Los Angeles County!

Within minutes of our final stop on Bancroft Street at UC Berkeley, the local media interviewed us. Mind you, they were preparing a story on something else, but we became their featured report for the evening. Twitter sensation Baked Alaska spoke out: “We are here to be peaceful. We have no intention of starting violence.” That was true then, and it’s true now. Our team demonstrated the true diversity of the Trump movement in California. We had Asians, Blacks, and Latinos for Trump joining, including immigrants from Central America furious about millions of illegals clamoring for immediate amnesty.

I expected nothing less than peaceful victory the next day, and I was right. The makeshift free speech rally began at 2 p.m. in Martin Luther King Jr. Park. By 1 p.m., conservatives of all stripes swarmed the main plaza. One man held the American flag at the top of a dried-up fountain. He ensured that our banner yet waved above all other banners. Men and women draped in American flags, Trump gear, picture of Pepe the Frog, and most importantly riot gear of their own populated the entire square. This Trump supporter never felt so at home, and right in the heart of ultra-liberal Berkeley, California.



The conservative masses there were stumping not just for Trump, but for freedom of speech, for our rights as citizens, and for our great country. After eight years of Barack Obama and the insidious poison of silencing political correctness, We the People—especially in California—had had enough and staked out our stance. Other guest speakers, including Laura Southern and Gavin McInnes, spoke at the rally. McInnes even read Ann Coulter’s scheduled speech.

She should have been there. Granted, not building the wall along our southern border counts as government abandoning its core responsibility. But a conservative advocating for principles of freedom of speech as well as enforcement of our immigration laws needs to stand up and fight for these principles, even in the face of dire threats.




Antifa showed up, but with limited effect. Berkeley police, in full riot regalia, defended the streets, and free speech advocates won the day. Trump supporters signaled that they won’t rest until every right is secured, even in the most liberal bastions. If conservatism’s leading minds won’t step up, then We the People will. After all, Americanism is at stake. There is no America apart from the First Amendment.
