Active Duty Army Soldier From Hawaii Arrested While Attempting to Join ISIS…

In addition to Hawaii being the origin of Barack Obama’s worldview and the epicenter of currently failing leftist judicial attempts to block President Trump from implementing a temporary travel ban from known terrorist and extremist nations, now Hawaii has the distinction of being home to an active duty soldier arrested while attempting join ISIS.

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) –  An active duty Hawaii soldier has been arrested for allegedly trying to provide material support and training to the Islamic State.

FBI special agents and SWAT arrested Ikaika Erik Kang, 34, on Saturday evening at his Waipahu apartment.

Authorities said they believe Kang was a “lone actor,” and “not associated with others who present a threat to Hawaii.”

“Kang has been under investigation by the U.S. Army and the FBI for over a year,” said Honolulu FBI Special Agent in Charge Paul D. Delacourt. “FBI assets and Army investigative resources were continuously deployed to ensure the public’s safety during the course of this investigation and Kang’s eventual arrest.”

Kang is with the 25th Infantry Division at Schofield Barracks.

He was deployed to Iraq in 2010, and served in Afghanistan in 2014, according to his military service record.

A criminal complaint filed in federal court alleges that Kang swore allegiance to ISIS, attempted to provide military documents to ISIS, and attempted to provide training to the terrorist organization.  (read more)

Democrat congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, who was also in the military, and also suspiciously opposed President Trump for his action against ISIS in Syria, and she is also coincidentally from Hawaii….

Just sayin’….

Barack Obama, Muslim Ban, Judicial Intervention, People who join ISIS, Hmmm.  Hawaii has some suspicious connective tissue, or something.

I mean, well, if Democrats can play a game with a Russia, Russia, Russia narrative… they might also open themselves up to someone -obviously not me- beginning a ‘Muh Hawaii’ narrative.

Gnome sayin’, Mr. Suspicious?

Hmmm, and what’s with this ‘aloha and mahalo’ lingo?…

            Thank you WSB, that was pretty informative even though there are still a great deal of questions. I will say I am so sick and tired of these parents claiming their kids were so great and they had no idea whatsoever what was going on with their kid. Oh, but it must be PTSD claims his dad. I say bs on that one. Bigly. There is no way his dad didn’t know of something going on since his son seemed to be so vocal about his stance off and on post.

            Most of, if not all of his medals were for participation only. I would think being in infantry he saw battle, but I’ve been told it isn’t always necessary so. However, he did take the highest level in combat training which he did here in the states. What was it a four week session? I wish I knew more about that.

            I wouldn’t doubt if this guy was picked on a lot growing up. He seems to hold a great deal of hatred towards others, especially if they slighted him. For heavens sake, studying ways to torture others and saying he wanted to kill a lot of people. I think it was smart for the FBI to pick him up the same day he had said it. I cannot imagine how many lives they saved over this one. I am ever so thankful for that.

            We have been giving the FBI a very hard time about letting these sick bastards go so easily in the past to later witness a horrific attack on innocents. I wouldn’t doubt it has a lot to do with pressure from the public, no more comey, and some smarter people running the show. I’m talking about the leaders in the field. All I can say is, THANK YOU!

            And thank you WSB for sharing this. You’ve hit awesomeness again!

              He was an air traffic controller in an aviation brigade attached to the infantry. Kang was not knocking down doors in combat, he was in the rear with the gear…and probably never even left any bases he deployed to. His “PTSD” was probably limited to basic training.

              Kang was a POG 15Q (Air Traffic Controller). His awards were all participation trophies and while he was assigned to an Infantry Division, he was support all the way. His “highest level in combat training” is his certification as a Combatives Instructor (unarmed “combat”).

        If I might just add one last update on Charlie Gard. The Supreme Court in Britain seems to believe that their judgment is more important than that of the parents of this 11 month old baby. The Justice used the same words as the Hospital. Charlie needs to die with dignity. He will not be allowed to travel to the US because the court feels that the new medication will do nothing for him and its better if he dies with dignity. I’m sure Charlie has no idea what dignity means. He does know what love is however because of the enormous love his parents have demonstrated toward him. The parents of this child were treated more like British Slaves than British Citizens.

    There is a strong movement to secede from the US and become an independent nation in Hawaii as well as a great deal of anti white sentiment. They call whites haole, a derogatory term. It is not surprising that ISIS appeals to someone from there. Disconcerting but not surprising.

    Maybe this is something to keep an eye on.

        There are many more of us who are Americans to the core and would give our lives for the Country.

        Back in the 70’s, during a period known as the “Hawaiian Renaissance” there was a land dispute over some farms in an area slated for massive development owned by long time local families (There will always be land disputes in Hawaii, cause there isn’t much of it). The local mob (very bad people…the book “Hell Bent” gives a good background on them…the Detroit mob once sent a kill team here to show some muscle. They were sent them back in pieces in a Samsonite, with a note that said “Send more”) sent some car loads of assorted firearms to the leaders of the land protest to “support” them. The leaders thanked the mob but refused the weapons. Cooler heads prevailed.
        Sadly, the new generation of protest leaders (the Mauna Kea telescope and Hawaiian Sovereignty movements to name a couple) are immature SJWs who tend to lean toward irrational , emotional responses. As the new breed they show up already fed up.
        I can see them making deals with the devil to get what they want, while giving everything away.
        Just like we did hundreds of years ago.
        We wanted nails, so we traded our land for them.

          Hawaii, “the Gibraltar of the Pacific” is a strategic military base that not only guards the shipping lanes but is also a forward vanguard to the west coast of the United States and Canada. Additionally, Honolulu is an international banking center that handles accounts from all around the Pacific Rim and Asia. Hawaii which has no innate military of its own would become prey to any number of foreign powers if left to its own devices. For those reasons and many others, The Kingdom of Hawaii will forever more be incorporated into the United States of America.

        That was something Obama was pushing…special recognition.

        There has been a militant movement within Hawaiian “sovereignty” groups for decades. It would occasionally break into the news. However, like all good communist cells in the U.S., they lay low for the most part until they gain political power through subterfuge. Leftists have fostered it, caused divisions, and perhaps have now reaped a reward for their efforts, just not quite what they had hoped.

        Note that the traitor’s father cites PTSD as an excuse. Guess we’ll have to wait and see exactly how “shocked” and “we-didn’t-have-a-clue” the entire family really is. But you can bet the bank it will be one of his defense’s memes.

          Bill Clinton recognized the Hawaii sovereignty movement and the claim that the Kingdom was stolen by the US in a coup which is partly fact. OBama, Mr. Punaho Pretty Boy himself added fuel to that fire. There are few full blooded Hawaiian left and the sovereignty activist are loud but a small group too. Hawaii will never go back to having a monarchy because the Democrats that run the state will never allow that to happen.

        You’re wrong. There is a move to secede. It’s radical but it exists and is similar to those who wanted to secede in Alaska. Remember how Todd Palin got smeared over that?

        Actually the only purpose was to destroy the Pacific Fleet to give Japan time to make their conquests in the Far East. The irony was they were concerned with the battleships. Their use of aircraft essentially showed that the battleship was no longer the naval threat that it was in WWI.

          I had a “friend” who visited Hawaii so often… it was almost his second home. (Almost)
          He did say it was expensive there, and that most things were “imported” on cargo ships or by air.
          He had so many friends and business contacts that he always talked about and palled around with. He was always entertaining, someone!
          Oh, the mischief they would get into. Lol
          He especially liked the fact that, whatever “business” adventure he was off to next, Hawaii afforded him the ability to travel (non-stop) to every major city. Although, he spent most of his time going to: Seattle, Portland, S.F., LA, and San Diego.
          His business had several “Defense Contracts” and required going to the Military bases in those areas.

Those movements are similar to Native American Nations in their scope and that is the extent of it.

My father-in-law (RIP) was a purple-heart guy from the legendary 100th battalion, Japanese descendants that loved and fought for this country. I wonder why every Hawaii incident thread degenerates into general statements of dislike for the islands. Blue Hawaii, sure, hardly a Republican in office at any level. But it is a complex tapestry of historical and social threads that are always glossed over in these threads, in a way that other states do not seem subject to. I wonder why?

Or how about criticisms of San Francisco or Los Angeles turning into criticisms of California and all Californians? Or criticizing New Orleans or Baltimore politics turns into accusations of racism? Criticism and generalizations happen everywhere.

          Hawaii isn’t being singled out for criticism because of the ethnic composition or culture. Anyone who hates a person solely because of his race is bird dung in my book. Hawaii IS being criticized for allowing the political takeover by radicals who look at America as the root of all evil in the world. The communist party has a long history in Hawaii. Frank Marshall Davis, Obama’s mentor, being one. Without doubt, communists and other leftists have sown hatred of America in both covert and overt ways.

          But that failure of Hawaiians’ political vision certainly doesn’t translate to criticism of inhabitants who love their country, see its benefits and want to live their lives without rancor or hatred, even if their ancestors may have been wronged by those who came to their shores uninvited.

            Just been watching Classic Hawaii 5 0. You get a sense of that happening in the late 70s, I’m up to series 9. It’s actually quite scary, because you can feel society dislocating and they can only stop the gaps, whereas in the first years, there are bad guys, but they are not part of the population.

      • The following is a sampling of this thread, on a discussion about a soldier turned traitor. I don’t see the connection, but I do detect the venom:

        “Strip Hawaii of its statehood and forcibly grant it independence. #ExpelHawaii”
        “3rd world nation under the protection of America. Let is secede!”
        “Never goin back. Got better things to do.”
        “Honolulu, believe me, it’s a cesspool full of corruption croneyism & ineptitude!”
        “As far as I am concerned Hawaii can go on its own.”
        “How much are WTP via taxes paying Hawaii and how much are we receiving? If it is not a credit , we should let them go along with Puerto Rico.”

          No poisonous snakes in HI. The guy is from HI so HI gets slammed. If he was from NY there would be a bunch of NY stories. Just opinions based on experience, hearsay, rumor and internet knowledge. Like anything on the web some is good and some is bad.

          Nothing wrong with defending your State. We even had a war over that.

        Perhaps vision in the past of OZero on our dime surfing his time away, and more recently visiting just before a pal Judge did a temporary stay ban are still on the mind of at least this sheep. That is not to diminish the whole state and its people, but the mental image for me now is not what it once was.

        I don’t know why you are shocked. Hawaii is a cesspool of nepotism and cronyism. The native Hawaiian people have been shipped to one island (Niihau) in order to keep the blood pure because the island have been overran with every race in the pacific and orient. They were cheated out of their land. Housing costs are atrocious. Local people live in house owned by the grandparents….sometimes as many as four or five families in a single family home. Most work for locals is menial at best. Union jobs are sold to family member or close friends. The police department is corrupt (the last police chief was removed after years of fighting corruption charges. The great trusts set up by the last monarch (Queen Liliuokalani) to take care of the land and people have turned into corrupt money grubbing pay to be on the board trusts: leasing lands given to the people to huge corporations to build hotels and shopping centers. Condo are built and sold by the floor to investors parking money in real estate so that housing prices are so high that even one bedroom condos built for the poor costs over 350,000.00. The island of Oahu is overran with the homeless that today, 7/10/17, the legislature is voting to arm the Park Police in an attempt to stop the take over of “valuable tourist locations.” The Hawaiian public education system is one of the worst in the USA. Many schools do not have air-conditioning and students get sick from overheating. If you are a tourist or very wealthy it is a great place…if you are a middle class or lower it is not such a great place to try and succeed.

    I have only been to the big island, Oahu, in 2014, staying in the Hale Koa (military) high rise hotel on Waikiki. I insisted on a few days visit on a return trip from NZ. I am glad we went, and thoroughly enjoyed seeing most of the military sights there. I had a former student who, with her husband, were stationed at Schofield Barracks, and they showed us all around. Personally, you can have Honolulu, and have NO desire to go back there. Maybe other islands are different. The US WWII memorials were amazing, and very inspiring, as my dad was a B29 pilot stationed on Tinian, and Hawaii was their stop off on their way to the S. Pacific. Just my observations about Hawaii. We may never know what triggered that guy with ISIS……………

        Thank Heavens Abraham Lincoln did not say that about the southern states when they WANTED to secede.

        It has never been easy to hold together as a country.

        Infighting and picking on each other is easy.

        Making America Great Again is going to take a lot of work.

        It seems to me that this soldier has possibly committed treason.

        There are always a few really nasty people in every state.

        Some states and cities seem to have more than a few.

        New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Miami, San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, Los Angles, Baltimore, I could go on and on and on,

        We talk about these one beautiful cities and if we don’t live there we sometimes become smug and think “we should build a fence around them and let them go”.

        But Donald Trump said let’s Make America Great Again and we said we would help.

        So I say how about it Treepers.

        Stop the negative trash talk.

    Third military personnel involved in ISIS inspired plot this year?

    We’ve already had Estaban Santiago (Ft Lauderdale, Marines) and possibly Richard Rojas (the New York Times Square “drunk driver”, Navy). Now this.

    All previously deployed military. All ethnic minorities.

    Something is stinky in the military. And no, that doesn’t mean Mk-Ultra. I’d start looking into imam-led “chaplain” services or other programs (diversity outreach or sensitivity training anyone?) that might be fostering connections between jihadist elements and young veterans.

    Which reminds me of another name associated with both the US military and jihadism: Nidal Hassan.

      Clarification:

      The reason to point out all three are/were ethnic minorities is to raise the possibility individuals may be seeking out young veterans who are taught to feel marginalized by society due to their race/background.

    I have lived in Hawaii most of my life. Hawaiians have great pride and deservedly so. It is a magnificent culture. They also have legitimate grievances. But their desire for recognition is not driven by militancy or a majority wish to secede from the US.
    The communist party usa which has long had a foothold (Frank M Davis) and the dominant presence of labor unions supporting the Democrat party are what breeds the nonsense coming out of this state. It’s embarrassing, and now dangerous. They know not what they breed and none of us are prepared for the consequences.

        Corrupt democrat politicians and a compliant, morally bankrupt democrat population ( with the probable exception of Hawaiians ) are the problem. Being ruled by liberals is miserable. Hawaii is a state because of opportunistic businessmen and geopolitics. I don’t know where you live, but chances are Hawaii is protecting your ass in some way. It is forward listening post, it is armed, and most likely a western US first line of defense.

          Indeed.

          Notice the beautiful places are where they congregate most, where the living is easy, then create a cesspool. Somewhat ironically, those are places vital to US commerce and security, supposedly anathema to those people, that we need to reclaim, not discard. Also note, they don’t protest the fruits of commerce and security, just the people and process that create and enable them, quite twistedly parasitic foolishness.

          In any case, MAGA, as Chloe reminded us upthread, means ALL of America, not whatever remains after we vote all the lost sheep off our island, so to speak whilst mashing metaphors…

    If only there were some way for us to recognize some common trait of these Jihadi Soldiers. Something that would clue us in to a particular risk group, folks that bear watching, kept out of the Military, never ever trusted as their professed ideology teaches and glorifies deceit and delayed-gratuitous-murder in order to build up their numbers and sucker Civilization into accepting their assertions of fidelity and harmlessness as they scheme behind those lies.

    Well, its just as well we can’t recognize these “self-activating” I mean “self-radicalized,” all by themselves, with no influence whatsoever from going on two millennia of murderous bloodthirsty conquest and subjugation and drives to destroy Civilization.

    For if we could recognize the murderous deceivers, (being themselves deceived), then we would be Profiling, which is RACIST!
