Carroll's guest today is Attorney John Carroll, the Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate in the last election. He is particularly concerned about the Jones Act and its effect on Hawaii. He now plans to get together with John McCain to try to get a bill through Congress.
John Carroll discusses the future of the Republican Party and what will be happening in Washington, D.C., under President-elect Trump, his transition team and his cabinet picks. John says he is very hopeful and sees a good future ahead. Cox talks about the corrupt Democratic government in Hawaii and asks why we are so worried about Trump considering all
the problems we are currently having in Hawaii under the Democrats.
John Carroll notes there are many good people in Hawaii who will not run because they do not want to run as a Democrat and Republicans rarely win. He also says he is calling for a complete audit of the rail, from the time of Linda Lingle forward, to determine who did what.
The second hour Carroll and callers discuss government, Democrats, Republicans, and whom can we trust, if anyone. Carroll notes Trump won because he does not have anything to do with the government that so many people distrust. One caller talks about why many politicians in Hawaii act like Republicans even though they
ran as Democrats,
because Republicans never win. For example, because of the Republican leaning Democratic politicians, most housing in Hawaii is being built for the high-end market.
The second hour Carroll also talks about the hippo exhibit, zoo accreditation, and the loss of another zoo director. This week Carroll worked with KGMB on a story about the hippo
exhibit still being closed and why one of the hippos died during construction of the exhibit. He also was interviewed for a story by KITV showing a sign in the zoo administration building saying the zoo was accredited, even though it has not been since earlier this year, and may not
gain accreditation for several more years. Carroll talks about problems he had trying to get permission to film the KGMB story, including footage of the remaining hippo who has not been seen in public for approximately two years.
Carroll also wants you to know about the Winter of Praise Gospel Concert on December 4, 2016, 5 p.m., at the Hawaii Theater. Sounds like a good one.
Sweeping up is a big task. The cleanup needs to start now.
