Focusing on Hawaii this week. SuperflyOz takes a look at the subpoena that the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transit received from the Federal Grand Jury in Honolulu, asking for all kinds of records about the now very-overpriced rail project. With the subpoena, both supporters and opponents have been re-invigorated and the mis-information about the project that got us here in the first place will come out again, concerning to SuperflyOz. Because the people don't know the truth of this project, SuperflyOz highlights who should be the "core sources" of information that the people of Honolulu should look to, moving forward, to find out what is really going on with the Honolulu Rapid Transit System. Here is a hint, SuperflyOz will not be caring what the opposition or supporters, or even the City's government have to say, any more, until the investigation is done.

We also open the mailbox and read a letter from a long time listener who expresses his mana'o (knowledge) on the issue of the media and their shenanigans, highlighted in Ep. 83. The SuperflyOz podcast can be contacted by email sjfhawaii@gmail.com and can be heard on these fine platforms.

House of Representatives HR 109 is being called the "Green New Deal" (GND) with its author and ideas taking Washington DC by storm. SuperflyOz this week takes a look at the resolution and provides an alternative analysis of why this resolution even saw the light of day. SuperflyOz looks at it from a perspective that this is yet another level of fight by Bernie Sanders followers to push their ideas forward. Furthermore, SuperflyOz sees that this resolution with the superstar Congresswoman, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, pushing this, has literally taken the ability to create party policy out of the hands of the Democratic party, and is now in the hands of this 29-year old newly minted Congresswoman. SuperflyOz closes out with a hope that all sides actually take a tack from this effort and actually come out with alternative or even more novel ideas that will address what is in this resolution. SuperflyOz also gives a shoutout to all of the Hawaii podcasts that were featured in Honoluu Magazine for Feburary, featuring this new medium to a larger audience. SuperflyOz also provides an update on the shows progress, with the start of building of a new Website for the show that will be rolled out soon.

SuperflyOz this week takes issue with the recent behavior of the news media. Seeing how the media has gone ahead to throw facts and patience aside, the actions of reports on "Forrest fire" issues concerns SuperflyOz a great deal. SuperflyOz first talks about his background in print media, having worked for a newspaper and been a news reporter in prior jobs. From the Covington High School students issue in Washington DC to the more recent issue of Governor Nordham in Virginia, SuperflyOz points out that the media is putting labels on individuals and events faster than the news can get out. Furthermore, SuperflyOz is concerned that this immediacy of getting a story and narrative out is truly damaging the ability of Americans to "look at both sides" and evaluate a story before coming to judgement. The media is then put to blame for some of this by SuperflyOz.

Shout outs this week go to Devon Nekoba for his great acting work on "In the Heights" and a announcement of interviews coming up on the show. The show very much appreciates feedback. If your letter is clean enough and good enough for this clean broadcast, go ahead and email the show at sjfhawaii@gmail.com, comment on the show's post on Facebook under "Stan Fichtman", or on Twitter at the handle @PoliticsHI.

With the federal government shutdown on a three-week hiatus, SuperflyOz takes apart the issues that led our country up to a record-breaking shutdown. SuperflyOz first looks at the instigators of the shutdown and places prime blame on this with a new player in presidential influence - conservative media. Then SuperflyOz takes a look at the winners and losers and finds out that - surprise - no one is a winner in this. Because of Congressional actions that showed they were as much in a stalemate as it was between Congress and the White House, SuperflyOz then declares who is the real adult in all this - and you will be surprised who that is!

Then SuperflyOz opens up the mailbag and reads off reactions to SuperflyOz episode No. 81 - Lukewarm Love for Tulsi. Two specific letters are read out and perspectives given from both them and SuperflyOz response to them. He also provides updates of what happened since her announcement.

The show very much appreciates feedback and as demonstrated, if your letter is clean enough and good enough for this clean broadcast, go ahead and email the show at sjfhawaii@gmail.com, comment on the show's post on Facebook under "Stan Fichtman", or on Twitter at the handle @PoliticsHI.

The 2020 Presidential Race landed on the shores of Hawaii this week with the announcement of Representative Tulsi Gabbard's candidacy for President. SuperflyOz looks at the reaction of the announcement at the local (Hawaii) level. One thing is for sure, the reaction of locals here on her announcement is very different than how Hawaii welcomed the candidacy of 44th President Barack Obama in 2007.

Why is that?

SuperflyOz gives insight and analysis not only of the reaction by the media and public, but also reveals that, despite being in the middle of the Pacific, the people's view of politics is evolving. That evolution, which SuperflyOz theorizes is partially due to the "Trump Effect" of desensitizing political actions, all the way to how Gabbard had interfaced with the state before this, is unpacked for the SuperflyOz listener. Further, find out why so many have decided to jump into the race on the Democratic side, outside of Tulsi.

SuperflyOz then opens the mailbag and reads a letter from a listener who wanted to share their mana'o (knowledge) on the issue of illegal immigration, spoken about on episode #80.

**CORRECTION to 9-19 Upload** error was made in the number of terms that Tulsi Gabbard has served in Congress, it was 4, not 2 as said in the 9-19 broadcast. That reference has been removed, with thanks to the commentator who called that error out.

SuperflyOz this weeks looks at the issue of "The Wall" and why the idea of declaring a national emergency to build it is probably the worst idea to resolve the stalemate between the White House and Congress. SuperflyOz first provides an update as to what has happened to this point, noting that both sides are negotiating on very different levels - one side being business minded and the other being more politically minded.

Then SuperflyOz provides insight as to why declaring a emergency is a bad idea in that the precedent set will affect generations of Americans to come. Then he provides a alternative approach to resolving the issue by reshaping the debate from that of a wall to that of how we can really revamp our immigration laws and bring them up to the 21st Century. You will not want to miss this analysis as it is something your not hearing on the mainstream media.

SuperflyOz also gives a shout out to friends who have commented on the show and he gives an update as to his first week as a radio host on the "808 State Update" on Honolulu radio station AM940. You can find the SuperflyOz podcast on these hosting sites and websites:

With the new year comes some reminiscing and some new opportunities for the host and the show itself.

SuperflyOz first does some reminiscing and shares with the listener a presentation that Stan Fichtman, SuperflyOz himself made in front of an audience back in early 2018. I talk about how my family, the Fichtman's, came to Hawaii and eventually raised two generations of my family here. This presentation was made through hard work between myself and a storytelling coach at Civil Beat, the hosts of the presentation. Please listen and find out more about my background leading up to now.

Then we talk about the future of the program and it's host. Find out about the opportunity presented to me to be a regular host on a local radio show every Monday, and find out my thoughts of where the SuperflyOz podcast will go with this development. It is an expansion of the analysis, perspective and insight that you have come to trust in the podcast, but now with a Monday afternoon presentation of these thoughts from 4-6 on AM 940's "808 State Update".

Episode 77 is the Christmas/Holiday episode, and how else should it be celebrated on SuperflyOz? Well, with politics and things going on this week in your federal government.
We start with talking about the latest episode of "Government Shutdown" that seems to have become a well seen sitcom on the American television. For this episode, it has to do with one side wanting to have a wall funded, and the other side saying "no way Donnie". Nice tidbits from the lead up from a SuperflyOz perspective are shared along with giving everyone a reality check on what this shutdown really is and the performance of outside players to influence the building of the wall.
We then turn to the other big news out of Washington and the resignation of Jim Mattis as Secretary of Defence. While it can be seen as cut and dry that there was a philosophical disagreement between Mattis and his boss, Pres. Trump, SuperflyOz delves deeper into what is really leading the call to get out of Syria and scale down our work in Afghanistan. Lets say that the behaviour of this Republican administration is way more dovish than others, almost Democrat like.

Intro and outro music for this episode is courtesy of the United States Air Force Academy Band, and their rendition of "The Polar Express, Spirit of the Season".

It's transportation and potpourri on this week's episode of the SuperflyOz Podcast, with a sprinkling of shout outs to SuperflyOz friends and a read of letters.

SuperflyOz gives a shout out to the new Chief of Staff hired by Hawaii's new Lieutenant Governor, Josh Green. Brooke Wilson is a friend of SuperflyOz and having people who knows how government works at levels below the executive can only benefit the LG's office.

Onto Transportation issues, SuperflyOz talks about the most recent announcement by Southwest Airlines on their service to Hawaii. Once again, a lot "we're coming"noise is being made by the airline but things that would be more definitive, like dates and places where they will fly first from, is still unknown. SuperflyOz puts a perspective and gives the listener a couple of items that would be a real signal that the airline is very close to starting services to the islands.
Continuing on with transportation, Civil Beat, an online news source, is starting a new section dedicated to transporation issues on Oahu. "Wayfinders" is being written by reporter Marcel Honore. Excited about the possibility that there be more focus on Oahu transportation, SuperflyOz has reached out to him and is encouraging listeners of the show to read Marcel's column that has just started this week and provide him your perspective as he develops this column.

In the mailbag - feedback has already arrived regarding Episode 75 - "Calling out & challenging the Social Justice Warriors". Listen to a perspective of a listener on this subject.

And finally, some programming notes as we end up the year.
