Congratulations to all the winners in this years elections. There are 3 new county council people on Kauai. (Felicia Cowden, Luke Evslin, and KipuKai Kuali‘i.)
"Felicia Cowden came from behind to win the seventh and final council seat in Tuesday’s general election. She’ll join incumbents Mason Chock, Arryl Kaneshiro, Ross Kagawa and Authur Brun on the council, along with challenger Luke Evslin and former councilman, KipuKai Kuali‘i." TGI
   Derek Kawakami  beat Mel Rapozo in a blowout election. The people on Kauai have spoken.

Just Imagine, Governor Kawakami and Mayor Rapozo


   I can always pick the winner of any reality show by going to the final contestant's Facebook page and looking at their likes and how many followers they have. Every year I



pick 'America's got talent,' 'The voice' and 'American Idol' by this method. This same concept can be applied to predicting political races. 

When I frequented Mel Rapozo's Facebook page he would have many likes for a sign waiving or special event, maybe 50-60.  Derek Kawakami for the same type event could have 300-500 likes. Believe it or not Derek once  posted a photo of himself eating a cheeseburger
at In-n-out burger in California and got over 300 likes without saying a word.
Derek could post a photo of himself picking his nose and he would get 500 likes.  Kawakami is the most charismatic politician the state of Hawaii has ever manufactured. The people love him and he  loves the people.

Mel Rapozo put up one heck of a fight for Mayor. Rapozo, a humble man, a true mensch and a man who loves Kauai more than any person I have ever met. It's heartbreaking not seeing
Mel win after all the hard work. They say the Lord works in mysterious ways and there is a reason for everything. Although I supported Mel, Derek Kawakami is a great guy and  Kauai really cannot go wrong.

Mel Rapozo will be sorely missed
as the Council chair when his term
limits expire next month. I look forward
to Mel running again for either
 Council, Mayor or both!

(Whose that guy with the MAGA hat?)


I have heard through the coconut wireless and even at one of the mayoral debates that Derek could possibly have higher aspirations to make a run for Governor in 2022 when Governor Ige's term limits expire. I believe Kawakami is one of the most popular politicians in the state and a run for Governor is not out of the question.  Mel Rapozo will then hopefully be given his due right and time to run again for mayor, the position he so rightly deserves. They say, "the third times a charm!"

Just Imagine, 2022, Governor Kawakami and Mayor Rapozo! Talk about winning!
Congratulations to Mayor  Derek Kawakami and First lady Monica

Publisher's note;
This is election week and many important seats and issues  are at large both national, state wide and locally.
Kaua'i has a cliff hangar Mayor's race. The race is between two friends, two men that most in the community consider friends, (Mel Rapozo and Derek Kawakami) therefore many people are not coming out publicly with endorsements. I  am friends with both men but came out publicly.(came out publicly for Mayor that is! ;-) 
Mel on the left, 
Derek on the right...
May the best man win!
 
I am voting for Mel  Rapozo as Kauai's next mayor.  I believe Mel knows better how to lead and have experienced first hand Mel's response to dire situations. Whenever I have had any dilemmas  with the county in the past and contacted Mel as either a county council man or county chair the situation was always promptly resolved with positive results.
Two Good men, only room for one Mayor!   They say, "When Mel Wins, Kauai wins!"  Good luck and God bless Derek Kawakami and Mel Rapozo.
May the best man win.

(Scroll to the bottom of this blog to read the exclusive news!)

  Writing a letter to the editor or penning a guest column, even a regular column in
any periodical isn't what it used to be.  You open yourself up to the peanut gallery, or what  I like to refer to as "the monkeys who like to throw feces at each other." Most have degrading, negative comments raging on bullying, even though the rules in most publications say no personal attacks, no name calling and all comments must stay on topic ---many times they don't.  Whatever happened to a good civil debate where people could disagree in a humane manner? 
                                                                                              Monkeys throwing poo? It's actually a sign of INTELLIGENCE - especially if they score a hit
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2068645/Monkeys-throwing-poo-Its-actually-sign-INTELLIGENCE.html 
My good friend Glenn Mickens dis-agrees with me politically on many issues and has  been a frequent
Glenn Mickens knows the art of
the civil debate
commenter and guest-blogger on my blog.  He never name calls or belittles anyone. He can disagree without putting one down or being a bully, a lost art in this day in age of "hatriotism"
(sic)



My two favorite publications disabled online comments for awhile, however for some reason  both decided to bring them back?
 Why is beyond me? I believe they are opening themselves up to liabilities for which they cannot foresee?
 Both publications have excellent editors. The editors who monitor just have to be on their toes when monitoring comments. Why do they do this when comments bring no additional advertising revenue, additionally it can take many extra hours a week to monitor every article in their periodical.


On the other hand an editorial writer must be a politician with thick skin. A writer once a lonely 'Maytag' repairman nerd is now in the firing squad and open to the harshest of criticisms while  monkeys in the zoo throw feces at your every word.



If you enjoy writing editorials,
just beware, every one of your thoughts is under a microscope.  I've spoken with a  few letter writers whom have stopped sending in letters since the comments at times have been so harsh.

Comment sections
have become the sewer line of online editions. The worst part commenters can be anonymous and use monikers, whereas letter writers, journalists and columnists must use their legal names. This is unfair,  commenters should be held to the same  scrutiny as letter writers, reporters and  columnists. Believe me, if their legal names were on these
comments they would be much more tame,sane and civil plus not be calling people some of the names I've been called---ranging from 'Nazi,' 'Dullard,' 'Idiot' 'Commie Pinko ,' and other names I won't mention...

For those whom only read the print editions, you don't know what your missing. (NOT!) At least on my own blog I am the "editor" and have the  power option of hitting delete!

A big Oy Vey to the comment sections of all periodical's!

An exclusive to dakinetalk blog! 

Mel Rapozo had been falsely accused for the last 23 years due to  false reports in a book called "KPD Blue" authored by Anthony Sommers. Basically Mel was a Sergeant back with the Kaua'i police in 1995 when Monica Alves was arrested for prostitution
 and two officers allegedly molested her in the Kauai police station while she also allegedly 
 performed lap dances while Rapozo was on duty and in charge? The incidents took place around 2:00 A.M. Rapozo left the precinct at approximately 10:45 P.M.
Sgt. Mel Rapozo (1995?)
Rapozo was cleared of all charges and  later reinstated however turned down reinstatement, which would had required him to accept a demotion to patrolman, however instead he became a private investigator. He later was elected to the Kauai County Council and eventually became after much hard work and dedication the County chair. Rapozo also works graveyard shift as a night auditor at a local resort.  Some in our community have never accepted Mel's clearance of all charges and innocence and have been very hard on Mel and his family over the years. Below is a short note form Mel and a Letter from 
Patricia (Alves) Cremer that should settle this for once and for all.
James "Kimo" Rosen

"It has been 23 years of hell for my family. I actually can't believe this finally came out. I am so thankful for the Alves family for doing this. I thank God for all of his blessings." Mel Rapozo

My name is Patricia (Alves) Cremer and what I am about to say is fact, not fiction, and is on behalf of the Alves family! The victim, Monica Alves, is our niece and we want to clear up the vicious rumors against Mel Rapozo.
Mel Rapozo was not present when all that nasty things happened. We know this to be true as we have first-hand information. Before anyone makes any false allegations, we suggest that you please get the facts and not rely on false media reports and fictional books (KPD Blue).
We, the Alves family, support Mel Rapozo 100% because his vision for Kauai is for all of us. We believe that he is going to fight hard for us like he has been for the past 14 years. Think about it! This man loves Kauai just like we do, and that is the kind of Mayor Kauai needs now, more than ever!
We ask you to support Mel Rapozo with your vote because if he wins, we all win! The people will win, not special interests.
Thank you,

Patricia (Alves) Cremer,
on behalf of the Alves ohana

"God is crying, It's gone too far... " 'James "Kimo" Rosen' (Kimo's world's #264)

Publisher's note;
 This past week  brought America a terrible tragedy when an anti-Semitic shooter opened fire in a Pittsburgh Synagogue during a 'bris' (baby-naming ceremony where a boy's foreskin is removed) killing 8  people and wounding six others, including four police officers who dashed to the scene. Please pray for the families of the victims... 
Please be safe, count your blessings, Pray for America, God bless

God is crying, It's gone too far...


  God is crying on what happened at 'Tree of Life' Synagogue in Pittsburgh when an anti-Semitic mad man walked in and brutally gunned down eleven 

worshipers during a bris ceremony and wounded many others  including 4 police officers.This is truly a national tragedy, but dreadfully not the worst worship killing in the recent past.  November 5, 2017,  Texas shooting kills 26 at Southern Baptist church in Sutherland Springs,Texas.  It was the deadliest attack on a house of worship in US history.  Prayers to every innocent soul who has suffered an unjust death while praying in any house of worship.
The RepublicCons(sic) need to quit blaming the DemonRats(sic)
and the DemonRats(sic) need to quit blaming the RepublicCons. (sic)
The media and far left want you to believe it’s President Trump's fault for the pipe bombs that were recently sent in the mail by a nut job and also Trump's fault for the 'Tree of Life' Synagogue mass shootings in Pittsburgh.  
The shooter and nut job with the pipe bombs are responsible for their own actions, nobody else.

It would be like blaming movie star Robert DeNiro and Hollywood for bank robberies, kid napping’s and every other crime in the book that you’ve ever seen in the movies that has happened in every day life.  People are responsible for their own actions, and need to take responsibility, nobody else.
 We must stand together as one America, not as partisans, especially in times like these.  It doesn’t matter what  political party you are affiliated with. When I was a kid I remember most  my friend's parents regardless of political affiliation had a photo of John F. Kennedy in their homes or offices,  even my dad proudly displayed JFK on his office wall. 

There was respect for America and respect for the office of the presidency.  The media knew JFK had numerous affairs including the one with Marilyn Monroe.  They knew his brother Ted covered up a killing in a car accident.  The media back then didn’t report on gossip or their personal life or the size of their hemorrhoids. Now they report on the shape of your ding dong and call you a pedophile because you love your daughter.  That’s what they now do with Trump. 
 It’s time  both parties take a chill pill. No more blame games.  
I heard this was excellent!


It’s gone to far.  

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God,indivisible with liberty and justice for all.  

Hear O Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord is One...

I am sitting with movie star Irene Bedard 
back in 1998 in Anchorage Alaska
when I was the publisher of Alaska People magazine. 
Bedard is most famous for the voice of Pocahontas
 in the classic Disney animation. I choice this 
throwback photo as a play on words. This blog is about 
Senator Elizabeth Warren whom many sarcastically 
 refer to  as Pocahontas. If you didn't know why she
 was called Pocahontas, read the blog!
Hope you enjoy!

Pocahontas is now Sitting Bull


I am proud to call myself an Independent.

Every week when you think the political rhetoric couldn't stoop any lower just tune into late night talk or open your Facebook timeline.

Last week Stormy Daniels
the porn star or as she prefers "Adult entertainer,"  appears to be a spokes person  for the Demon-rats(sic) on 'Jimmy Kimmel live,' comparing different sized toad stool mushrooms to the president's private crowned jewels.
Can't believe this is allowed on TV?
Watch the whole segment below,  a total disgrace and lack of respect to POTUS.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Ji8i7Wy4mo

 This  past week Elizabeth Warren wanted to prove she's an Indian.

Trumps saying if she has the DNA test and can prove she's an Indian he will give her favorite charity one million dollars. The results showing she is 1/1024th native American.  
 The average European American is .18% Native American , therefore the average European American is actually more native American than Elizabeth Warren is at 0.09% native American.
YouTube of Elizabeth Warren excited about her DNA test!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ANAWb6fgxaA&app=desktop
Pocahontas is no longer an appropriate moniker for Elizabeth Warren, many are calling her more suitable  nicknames of the likes of  "Spreading Bull" and "Sitting Bull."

Harvard Law school in 1997 was proud to disclose Warren as their first woman of color as part of their legacy. Warren used the native American heritage to better her career   as part of affirmative action. She clearly   stole from a deserving native American.
Pocahontas was trying to prove a point. She would show Donald Trump. Yes she sure did show Mr. Trump!"Pocahontas, you chose to play chess with Trump, and lost. "CHECKMATE".


America is a melting pot. Do we now have to prove our pedigree with papers like AKC registered dogs? After-all we are all created equal according to the US constitution.   Then why did Elizabeth Warren a senator, a viable candidate for the democrats to run for president on her Harvard  job application check native American to help get her a teaching position? The position was specifically reserved for minorities of color. Chances are more than likely you or I would  have the same amount or more DNA (1/1024th) of native American blood than "Sitting Bull."
Youtube-Gutfeld on Elizabeth Warren's DNA result claim
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=skvCtT15d2I&app=desktop


Elizabeth Warren did herself more harm than good.The Cherokee nation now wants nothing to do with her.She has less native American blood than the average American. I guarantee Trump has more native American blood than her.
Trying to prove who she was, she definitely proved who she was, a FRAUD.

  The media even fellow democrats were hard on Warren this past week. The comments were relentless all over the internet.  Elizabeth Warren hit back at Elizabeth Warren and ruined all chances of a presidential run.
Here is a sampling of comments form YouTube;
"Will Elizabeth Warren pay Harvard Law School back the scholarship she stole from a REAL NATIVE AMERICAN???"

"We are very confident that a person sneezed upon by a native american will have more native blood than she does."
Warren legit just proved she's whiter than your average Klansman."

"Elizabeth Warren’s DNA says she is 1/1024 Indian and the rest of her test shows her to be cocker spaniel. LOL"

   "Elizabeth Warren is more white than snow-flake ... Shame on her, taking advantages from Native American."

"1/1024th is LESS than the average WHITE American.  She proved she's "whiter" than most white Americans!
AND got an official rejection letter from the Cherokee Nation... Ouch!"

 "Elizabeth Warren hits back at Elizabeth Warren the Cherokee Indian by releasing DNA test"

"Only an idiot would release results like this."

"She scammed the system. If we still have affirmative action we should use it for the people it’s design to help.
How come someone that is 99.9% white can be a “woman of color”?"

"Next she will claim herself handicap to get front row parking . I have a thorn in my feet . I'm 1/1000th handicap."

"Pardon the phrasing, but Warren got caught red-handed."

"Elizabeth Warren made history at Harvard university by being the first “woman of colour” gaining such a senior professorship.
Ask them, it’s in their records."

"This is just hilarious. She really has thrown a tomahawk at her own foot."

Finally, I just saw the results of my own DNA test and saw that I am 1/1028 Afro American. I can't wait for my next application where there is a box to check ethnicity!  ;-)
