Saturday Echoes 


Abaddon Awaits

It’s a cold, blustery, day

In the distance, the neighbors are target shooting

The sound of each round echoes through the woods

It reminds me of something

The sound…it evokes a primal emotion within me, and it’s beautiful in its way

It’s the sound of safety…of preservation…of revolution

It is the sound of love blowing out the flame

All one ever deserved or has given comes back in the echo of that sound

I remember hunting with my dad in West Texas when I was little. He and I would ride on the tool box in the back of the truck, while my grandmother drove barely faster than a walking pace. I got to hold his rifle, as he scanned the desert for deer, his binoculars in one hand and a beer in the other.

That rifle was as long as I was tall and I felt very important because…

It’s Official! Kim Jong-un’s Penis Is Smallest of All Time


Hitman With a Limp

epa_kim_jong_un_jef_160106_31x13_1600

Scientist were ecstatic today when the official measurements of North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un’s penis was made public, making his penis size, the smallest ever on human record.

Dr. Jorgenson, a Penis Information Size Specialist (PISS) from the University of South London, published a medical journal outlining this exciting discovery.  Dr. Jorgenson had this to say about what he calls, the most profoundly small penis in well over 20,000 years of human development.  “It’s a miracle,” Dr. Jorgenson said with the enthusiasm of a young college student, “Kim Jong-un’s penis length came in under 2.0 uber-nanometers (fully erect) which was a measurement we had to invent because we couldn’t measure anything that small before.  This size smashed the previous record for smallest penis held by Republican Presidential nominee, Donald Trump, who measured an impressive 2.1 uber-nanometers (also fully erect) and no one in the scientific community thought that was even…

Woman Commands One of the Navy Ships that Fired Missiles Into Syria – VIDEO


The Department of Defense identified the USS Porter and the USS Ross as the two US Navy destroyers that fired Tomahawk cruise missiles into Syria on Wednesday in retaliation for the Assad regime’s use of nerve agents on its own people.

The USS Porter is one of the Navy destroyers that launched the cruise missile strike into Syria.

Commander Andria Slough, a 1998 graduate of the US Naval Academy, is the captain of the Porter. Her counterpart on the USS Ross is Commander Russell Caldwell, according to the web pages for both ships.

 

During her Navy career, Slough has served on a variety of ships and had previously commanded a minesweeper, the USS Defender.

Caldwell, originally from South Africa, graduated from the University of Kansas in 1998. He also served on several Navy ships before taking command of the USS Ross. He also has a master’s degree in Information Operations from the Navy Post Graduate School.

Both ships are Arleigh Burke-class guide missile destroyers and are assigned to the Navy’s forward deployed base in Rota, Spain.

The strike was conducted using Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles – or TLAMS – launched from the USS Porter and the USS Ross in the eastern Mediterranean Sea, the Navy said.

A total of 59 TLAMS targeted aircraft, hardened shelters, air defense systems, and supply depots at the al-Shayrat Airfield – where US officials said the chemical weapons were stored before they were used on the Syrian people.

Guided missile destroyers like the USS Porter and the USS Ross have a crew of about 33 commissioned officers, 38 senior non-commissioned officers and a crew of 210 enlisted sailors.

The ships are powered by gas turbine engines and are capable of speeds in excess of 30 knots or about 35 mph.

In addition to their ability to launch guided missiles, US Navy destroyers – known as DDGs – are designed to carry out anti-ship, anti-air and anti-submarine operations using a variety of weapons systems.

A Wall-Hating Liberal in Texas Who Plans to Defeat Cruz Using The “Trump Factor” Was Once an Emo-Punk Rocker {VIDEO} A Rising Star?


AUSTIN, Texas – Congressman Beto O’Rourke, a former mexican-emo-grunge-rocker who once got his band booked on an evangelical broadcast by pretending to be a new gospel band, needed a hefty upset to win his congressional seat six years ago will have to pull off an even bigger one to unseat powerful Sen. Ted Cruz. He used to play bass and sing in El Paso band, Foss, in the early 1990s.

Here’s a video that explains why he decided to get a day job. O’Rourke wouldn’t confirm that it was him, but anyone who has seen him around El Paso can see he is the one with orange beanie that is playing bass.

Considering what other garbage was out there at the time, I guess it could have been worse, check out more from the band’s MySpace account HERE if you like

A 44-year-old Democrat from the remote West Texas city of El Paso, has advocated for legalizing marijuana and preaches tolerance on the U.S.-Mexico border in massive defiance of President Donald Trump’s “Build that wall” mantra.

//www.washingtonpost.com/video/c/embed/61763522-f903-11e6-aa1e-5f735ee31334

The third-term congressman and fluent Spanish speaker is the kind of rising political star Democrats hope can help begin turning deep red Texas blue, aided by a booming Hispanic population and state politics pushed even farther right by Trump and Cruz. .

“The Trump factor. He’s the gift that keeps on giving to Democrats in Texas,” said the state’s Democratic Party Chairman Gilberto Hinojosa. “It’s energizing the base and changing the whole dynamics of electoral politics here, and that’s what these two guys see.”

It’s hard to imagine any Democrat taking Texas by storm, much less toppling Cruz, who added to his national stature running for president while remaining popular in most GOP circles back home. A Democrat hasn’t won statewide office in Texas in 23 years, the nation’s longest losing streak by a political party.

Still, O’Rourke insists Cruz is beatable and there are some positive signs for Democrats, who in November swept down-ballot races in Harris County, which includes Houston, and made notable gains in other fast-growing areas. Trump still beat Hillary Clinton in Texas by 9 percentage points — but that was the first time a Republican didn’t carry the state by double digits since 1996.

Overall only 39% of voters in the state approve of the job Cruz is doing, to 48% who disapprove. It was already clear from national polling that Donald Trump had come out ahead in his feud at the GOP convention with Cruz, but we find that even in Texas 52% of Republicans now say that they prefer Trump as their nominee this year to only 38% who would go with Cruz.

When asked about the Trump Administration, O’Rourke said, “I’m very concerned by some of his nominees. Jeff Sessions is a perfect example of someone who in every way is opposed to the promise that immigration and communities like El Paso and Texas hold for the rest of the country.”

“One thing I’ve learned is that very rarely does the moral argument, which is the compelling one for me, persuade anybody. So I try to make the strongest economic argument that immigration is in America’s self-interest. Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals beneficiaries, for example, will earn $4 trillion in taxable income over their lifetimes, and I’ve looked at what it would cost to deport them and what it would do to our economy should we lose them.”

“Those are things hopefully I can get Republicans to pay attention to. No state would be hurt more than Texas should we take a draconian turn on immigration enforcement, and it’s hard to imagine a more draconian turn than what we saw during the Obama administration, which deported more people than any previous administration.”

“The opinions of Texans show the extent to which a number of progressive policy goals have reached incredibly mainstream popularity, even in a state as traditionally conservative as Texas.”
• 89% of voters in the state support background checks on all gun purchases, to only 7% who oppose them. They’re supported by 94% of Democrats, 91% of Republicans, and 80% of independents.

Texas is becoming freakishly liberal:

• 83% of voters in the state support barring those on the Terror Watch List from buying guns, to only 10% who are opposed. That’s supported by 85% of Republicans, and 82% of both Democrats and independents.

• Voters in the state support an assault weapons ban, 48/43. That’s because Democrats are far more unified in their support for one (70/21) than Republicans are in their opposition to it (34/55).

• 72% of voters in the state support increasing the minimum wage to at least $10 an hour, compared to only 14% who think it’s fine where it is now, and 11% who would like to eliminate the minimum wage altogether. A minimum wage hike to at least $10 gets support from 94% of Democrats, 74% of independents, and 53% of Republicans.

There was widespread speculation Cruz could face a GOP primary challenge for being slow to endorse Trump last fall — but much of that has faded since Cruz has become a vocal supporter of Trump after November. Cruz spokeswoman Catherine Frazier declined to comment on O’Rourke’s entering the 2018 Senate race.

One way or the other, hopefully the other, let’s just hope he keeps his day job!

Killer Had Numerous Arrests Before “Allegedly” Killing 22 Year Old Police Officer, Never Spent A Day In Prison – America First Network


TECUMSEH, Okla. — A 22-year-old officer and new recruit died Monday morning after a shootout with a man who fled a traffic stop in central Oklahoma, police said. 

It was just before midnight on Sunday when Terney pulled Shepard over near Benson Park Road and South Gordon Cooper Drive, an intersection just south of Tecumseh’s town cemetery.

Officer Justin Terney pulled over a vehicle about 11:30 p.m. Sunday in Tecumseh, 35 miles southeast of Oklahoma City, according to police. A woman was driving, and Terney called dispatchers to see if a male passenger had any outstanding warrants.

Terney approached asked the male passenger in the car to exit the vehicle, and he started patting him down. When he was doing so, the suspect — who has not yet been identified — ran away from him and headed into the nearby woods.

At that point, the man ran toward some nearby woods, Kidney said. Terney chased the man on foot and used a stun gun, but that failed to stop him. The man then shot at Terney, who returned fire, he said.

From there a shootout ensued. Terney was shot three times and died about nine hours later at a local hospital. Shepard was shot five times but has survived.

Byron Shepard never went to prison despite having been charged with at least 12 felonies or misdemeanors since 2000. Weeks after being charged in yet another crime, Shepard allegedly shot and killed Tecumseh Police Department Officer Justin Terney on Sunday.

How had he avoided prison for so long despite his lengthy criminal record?

When deputies from the Okmulgee County Sheriff’s Office entered Pam Dodson’s residence, they knew who and what they were looking for.

About $500,000 dollars of equipment had been reported missing from Terrapin Energy Sources, an oil well servicing company out of Morris, a town about a 10-minute drive east of Okmulgee. Authorities suspected Byron Shepard, a former Terrapin employee with a long criminal history.

When deputies arrived at Dodson’s property, they noticed a 1992 red Chevrolet pickup with a bed full of what they believed was property stolen from Terrapin. Dodson told them the truck belonged to Shepard,
who had recently moved in. He had told her he was driving that 25-year-old pickup because the tag was out on his vehicle.

She let the deputies into the home, where they located items whose serial numbers matched up with equipment belonging to the well-servicing company. By the time they left, they had nearly recovered $200,000 of the stolen property.

About a week after deputies had entered Dodson’s residence, Shepard was charged with knowingly concealing stolen property.

It was at least the 12th time he was charged by Oklahoma authorities with a felony or misdemeanor since 2000. Yet he has always managed to avoid prison, records reviewed by The Frontier show.

Sometimes the cases were dismissed. Sometimes he was able to plead a felony down to a misdemeanor and receive a suspended or deferred sentence in place of prison time.

This time would be no different. Despite deputies knowing where Shepard lived and what he drove, court records show he was never arrested after that last charge was filed.

On Sunday, Shepard allegedly shot and killed a rookie Tecumseh police officer named Justin Terney after fleeing on foot from a traffic stop. It was the first death of an on-duty Tecumseh police officer in nearly 90 years, officials there said.

‘A passion for wanting to be an officer’

Terney was described by his coworkers as a dedicated police officer who chose a career in law enforcement early in life.

“He was a very young officer, just getting a start,” they said. “He was taken way too soon.”

“Talking to his dad today, while they were in the family room during surgery, he said he (Terney) chose law enforcement from a really young age,” Terney’s friend, Dillion Degraffenreid, told The Oklahoman earlier this week. “He had always shown a passion for wanting to be an officer.”

After he graduated from high school, Terney pursued his dream of serving the community. He studied at Eastern Oklahoma State College and pursued working for the police force. The school is a community college that offers associate degrees and certification programs. It’s located in Wilburton, Oklahoma and was founded in 1908 as the Oklahoma School of Mines and Metallurgy. Originally, the school focused on mining engineering, but expanded its studies as the years moved along.

Terney obtained his degree and shortly after doing so, got his first job as a police officer for the Tecumseh PD.

Terney’s own Facebook page showed a love for the outdoors, dogs, and for police work. 

hannah smith plea

The shooting will likely put an end to nearly two decades of alleged criminal acts by Shepard, who records show was first arrested in 2000 for selling a stolen handgun. Just 19 years old, and with only a 10th-grade education, Shepard eventually pleaded guilty and was given a five-year deferred sentence.

Records show Shepard’s life of crime began with that relatively small-scale infraction. A search of his name in the state’s On Demand Court Records database (ODCR) shows at least 36 traffic infractions, felonies and/or misdemeanors in the 17 years since his first brush with authorities.

And despite a seemingly escalating level of alleged crimes, Shepard only entered Oklahoma Department of Corrections custody once during that time, though he still avoided spending any time in a state prison.

In 2014 Shepard pleaded guilty to not paying child support. Court documents showed he owed more than $60,000 to the mother of his children. He was initially given a five-year deferred sentence, but was arrested again after falling behind on paying fines and costs. He eventually was given a four-year suspended prison sentence.

It’s unclear exactly how Shepard was able to stay out of an Oklahoma prison system that incarcerates people at a rate that outpaces most of the nation.

Most of his alleged crimes took place in Okfuskee County, a county approximately the same size as Oklahoma City, though he also received suspended sentences, or had cases dismissed in Garvin, Hughes, and McIntosh counties.

Two of the cases against Shepard (both domestic violence allegations that were laid out in detail in arrest affidavits,) were dismissed after the alleged victim failed to appear in court.

One case ended in probation; two ended in suspended sentences, in which a judge allows a convict to be on probation, which can be revoked if involved in a subsequent crime.

Two more cases ended with Shepard serving a deferred sentence, which allows a convicted person to possibly have the case erased from their criminal record if they meet certain conditions.

Of the seven Okfuskee County cases in which Shepard saw his criminal case resolved through dismissal, suspended sentence, probation or deferred sentence, four involved assistant district attorney Maxey Reilly. District Attorney Max Cook was involved in the other case, a protective order violation.

Six of those cases were at least initially heard in front of Associate District Judge David N. Martin.

Shepard’s rap sheet also includes numerous acts of alleged violence.

In 2005 he was charged with domestic assault and battery after his girlfriend told police Shepard punched her in the stomach as she was holding her four-month old son.

The woman returned to Shepard’s residence days later to take some items with her when Shepard arrived enraged, she told authorities. Prosecutors alleged Shepard grabbed the keys from the ignition of the vehicle the woman was in and threw them in the weeds so she couldn’t leave. He then tried to drag her through the window of the pickup, the woman said.

Shepard entered into domestic violence awareness classes, though he only attended two of the required three sessions. However, court records show the teacher reported that Shepard “accepted responsibility” for what he had done and showed “victim empathy.”

That charge was eventually dropped after the woman failed to appear at court hearings.

Two years later Shepard was arrested again. This time he had a loaded .22 caliber pistol, methamphetamines, and an open bottle of “low point Bud beer,” court records show.

Once again he pleaded guilty and was given a sentence of no prison time, instead receiving a five-year deferred sentence.

Before that conviction was handed down, Shepard was arrested again — this time for pointing a shotgun at a man, woman, and their three children during a dispute. Shepard at first told police the shotgun was unloaded, but eventually admitted it had been loaded during the dispute. He had unloaded it before police arrived, he said.

Shepard eventually pleaded that case down to “reckless handling of a firearm,” a misdemeanor. He was again sentenced only to a term of probation.

His offenses continued to escalate. In 2009 he was charged with kidnapping — a felony — after his girlfriend alleged Shepard had forced her to the ground and held her there during a dispute.

Police also found marijuana and paraphernalia in the apartment. That case was dropped after the woman failed to appear to scheduled court hearings, and records show she and Shepard were married about six months after the incident.

Two years later Shepard was charged with beating a man with a metal baseball bat, a charge to which he pleaded guilty and again received a four-year suspended sentence.

A year later he was charged with threatening to “slice the throat” of the mother of his children, court records show. A witness told police that Shepard reached through the window of a vehicle the woman was in, grabbed a phone from her hands and destroyed it, then said he was going to “kill her and the baby,” and that she “was a dead bitch.”

He once again pleaded guilty and was sentenced to a short probation term. On the probation paperwork Shepard signed, under a section intended to list contacts probation officers can call in case the offender doesn’t report to his probation officer, Shepard listed the victim from the crime for which he had just been sentenced.

That woman later was granted a protective order against Shepard, which he later was charged with violating.

Less than a week later, he was charged with driving under suspension and escaping arrest. While out on bond for that alleged crime, he was charged with the oilfield equipment theft.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said it will assist with crime scene investigation, which is common for police shootings.

Kidney told The Oklahoman that Terney had a new puppy and had hoped to become a canine officer. Terney grew up in Canadian, in eastern Oklahoma, and was also a volunteer firefighter, Kidney said.

Parenting Low: Outsource Your Kids, Hire a Coach to Teach Them to Ride a Bike! The End is Near!


obama bike

Some of today’s upwardly mobile generation doesn’t want to take time to teach their kids the time-honored rite of learning to ride a bike. Another of the ways that parents could bond with their kids and have an experience they could all fondly remember, going down the drain.

Teaching your child to ride a bike is so passé. Sure, you may think it’s your job to teach balancing, pedaling, and breaking, but for some it takes too much of their precious “me time.”

One woman gave the kid a bike with training wheels and just told him to go for it. Eight-year-old Max Goldberg of New York couldn’t quite get the hang of riding his bike, so after two years of training-wheeled trying, his mother stumbled onto a solution. 

BICYCLE COACHES, take the dirty job away from them, justified using all kinds of excuses.

Ah, hell. Didn’t want to get to know the kid anyway…

Sure the child might get a skinned knee (HORROR!) or something, but we wouldn’t want the Participation Trophy Generation to suffer such an indignation! It could mar their self-image for life!

Here comes the punchline… Private lessons cost in the neighborhood of $75 to $150, EACH! Where do I sign up to be a coach???

Howard Roth works as a bike coach in Long Island, N.Y., where he “teaches” kids how to master a two-wheeler.

 

Seriously! I need in on this! I’ll do it for $50 a lesson!

Clinton Adviser: Huma Abedin Wants More Weiner, “Working Hard At It” – Hopes For Change


Image result for anthony weiner huma abedin

Couldn’t possibly be the fact that spouses can refuse to testify against each other in a court of law? “A spouse cannot be compelled to testify against the other spouse.

If they had a formal signed separation that privilege it is gone.

With involvement in many possible upcoming investigations and litigations surely it’s a coincidence, getting back together?

“Huma has been working hard on her relationship with Anthony,” said a source close to the Abedin family. “He has been spending 80 to 90 percent of his time at the Irving Place apartment they share. If there is a disagreement, he goes to his mother’s apartment in Brooklyn.

“Both families are hoping they will reconcile.”

As his wife led Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, even more sexts were uncovered. Last September, the Daily Mail alleged that Weiner had sent ­X-rated messages to a 15-year-old girl. The next month, Abedin was sucked into the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s e-mails after her then-estranged husband’s laptop was seized.

Despite all of this, the family friend said, the couple is still in love. They blame “the pressures of the campaign and presidential race . . . and him drifting off into obscurity” for Weiner’s most recent relapse, the friend added.

After years of public humiliation by her sext-a-holic husband, Anthony Weiner, 40-year-old Abedin finally separated from the former congressman in August, one day after he had sent another explicit photo, this one showing his toddler son asleep beside him.

Image result for crazy huma abedin

In October 2015, a federal court in Washington, D.C. heard arguments on a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by conservative watchdog organization, Judicial Watch for records related to Abedin. Judicial Watch asked to make Ms. Abedin’s emails and employment records public, requesting details of the arrangement under which Abedin was designated a “special government employee”, allowing her to do outside consulting work while also on the federal payroll.[38][39] On October 6, the State Department said it would be able to hand over 69 pages of emails in response to the FOIA request.[40]

In 2015, emails by Abedin became part of the FBI investigation and the controversy concerning Hillary Clinton’s private email account while Secretary of State,[41][42]resulting in various allegations by Republicans of violations of State Department regulations.[43] Some officials within the intelligence community have stated that potentially-classified information was contained in e-mails from Abedin relating to the 2012 Benghazi attack and its aftermath, which had been sent through Clinton’s private, non-government server.[41][44][45] As of February 2016, 1,818 emails were found containing classified information on the private server; 22 of those were classified as Top Secret. “They were not marked classified at the time they were sent, but they did contain classified information when they were originally sent and received.” Clinton’s aides also sent and received classified information.[46]

On October 28, 2016, the FBI announced that while investigating allegedly illicit text messages from Anthony Weiner to a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina, they discovered e-mails related to Clinton’s private server on a laptop computer belonging to Abedin’s husband. FBI Director James Comey said the agency would review the e-mails to see if they contained classified material. Clinton called for the FBI to release its findings as soon as possible.[51] CNN reported: “The Justice Department and FBI officials are working to secure approval that would allow the FBI to conduct a full search of top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin’s newly discovered emails, sources familiar with the discussions told CNN.” The issue is complex because Abedin shared a computer with Weiner, according to officials, and the case may raise “spousal privilege legal protections” for Abedin since the computer belongs to her husband. In addition, a new search warrant is needed because the existing subpoena relates only to the investigation of Weiner.

The FBI’s New York field office were conducting the Weiner investigation and “stumbled on” the Abedin emails on the computer, which they thought was only Weiner’s, the officials said. They then stopped their work and contacted the team of investigators from FBI headquarters who had handled the probe of Clinton’s private email server. The investigators saw enough of the emails to decide that they seem pertinent to the Clinton server investigation and that they might be emails not seen before. Because they feel they need a warrant specific to Abedin’s emails, officials have not been able to examine them further.

Abedin is cooperating with the investigation, according to Justice Department and FBI officials. Investigators believe that some emails which were deleted from the Clinton server are possibly among those in question, and that they will need to interview Abedin again after examining the emails in Weiner’s computer.[52][53][54][55]

On October 30, 2016, the FBI obtained a search warrant for the Abedin-linked emails related to the probe of Hillary Clinton’s private server that were discovered on Weiner’s laptop. Abedin used the same laptop to send thousands of emails to Clinton, according to NBC sources.[56] On November 6, in a letter to Congress, the FBI said that, after reviewing all of Clinton’s emails from her tenure as Secretary of State, it had not changed its conclusion reached in July exonerating Clinton.[57][58][59]

A lot to cover up, especially if the ex-spouse can testify against her in a bargain to get out from under his own mess. Perhaps a mutual understanding may have been met.

Abedin seems ready to do whatever it takes to emerge from the shadows after years of major career disappointments and personal struggles, including being part of two failed Clinton presidential bids and getting named as one of the “Western Muslims” on an ISIS hit list last April.

A former senior Clinton aide who worked closely with Abedin during the 2016 race told The Post that a shift into the fashion world has been nixed. “I know she has been advised by people in the fashion industry not to do that,” he said.

The former aide confirmed Abedin is now working for Clinton, saying that whether she will be employed by Hillary’s personal office or the Clinton Foundation is moot. “If she’s working on Hillary’s time and schedule and appearances and public positioning, it’s not material who pays the check,” he said.

So, life goes on? I guess we will have to wait and see how it all plays out…

Our Big (Um, Little) Doob Adventure — Part Two

Hawaii: No Vetting For Potential Terrorists, But Six Month Quarantine For Your Dog! WTF?


If you travel to Hawaii and you bring a dog, even if the dog is a guide dog for a blind person, it is subject to a six-month quarantine to determine if it is a risk to the citizen’s welfare and safety.

But apparently they have no problem with allowing potential terrorists to enter with no more than a passport and plane ticket.

Trump’s travel related executive order was all set to go, but needed to be revised. Now Judge Watson’s restraining order prohibits the executive order from working as designed, putting American citizens at risk due to lack of extreme vetting. The executive order provides an extra layer of security for travelers and citizens alike, but some democrats and liberals feel as though the extreme vetting is too extreme and causes an inconvenience due to the temporary halt in travel for some people. You know, those “some people” who could be terrorists.

Hawaii claims that the EO violates the Constitution’s protections against religious discrimination, but Hawaii has to go beyond what the EO actually says to support this claim.

On page 40 of its memorandum, Hawaii says, “It is well established that evidence of purpose beyond the face of the challenged law may be considered in evaluating Establishment and Equal Protection Clause claims.”

But the “evidence of purpose beyond the face” of the EO consists primarily of statements President Trump made before he took the oath of office to become the president.

According to Eugene Kontorovich, a Northwestern University law professor, “there is absolutely no precedent for courts looking to a politician’s statements from before he or she took office, let alone campaign promises, to establish any kind of impermissible motive.”

Moreover, the claim that it is a Muslim ban is contradicted by Iraq’s removal from the list because arrangements have been made for the Iraqi government to provide the information needed for effective vetting of Iraqi nationals.

Now they pour in, unvetted. Here comes the good part…

Hawaii State law governs the importation of dogs, cats and other carnivores into Hawaii. Normal quarantine is 180 days at the Animal Quarantine Station (AQS) on Oahu.

120 days! WTF? 

They can qualify for the 5-Day or Less Quarantine, with extreme vetting…

  • You must start preparation at least 4 months prior to arrival. Sometimes it is even longer.
  • Your pet must have 2 rabies vaccinations at least 30 days apart.
  • The second rabies vaccination must be given at least 3 months prior to arrival in Hawaii.
  • Your pet must pass a blood test that shows a response to the vaccine. This blood test must be passed at least 4 months before arrival in Hawaii.
  • Your pet must be micro-chipped and dna markered.
  • Due to the minimum requirements, puppies and kittens would be at least 9 months of age before they can qualify for direct release.
  • This includes direct release at the Kahului Airport, if you meet requirements.

And the Governor claims that Trump’s order violates Due Process??
