U.S. AIDING THE CORRUPTION MECCA: HAWAII
                 Kingdom of Hawaii Records 2010-001by Amelia Gora (2010)

 
It appears the U.S. government through Congress are aiding the CRIMINAL MECCA: Hawaii through the Akaka Bill Maneuver.After the premeditated maneuver by Congress and the military in 1892, the support of conspirator’s (a term updated to terrorists since President Clinton’s administration period), the continued use of propaganda on the World to make it appear that the dethronement of Hawaii’s Queen Liliuokalani was legitimate appears to be the approach to continue a historical crime affecting our aboriginal Hawaiians and all in the World today.

The progressive moves of passing the Akaka Bill’s also known as H.R. 2314 and S. 1011
appears to be worded for the purpose of negating the Apology Law P.L. 103-150 signed by President Clinton, which legally documents the admission of crimes against a neutral, non-violent nation known as the Kingdom of Hawaii which has been documented as having gone “underground”.

Let us look at the Premeditation history as well as the aggressive, imperialistic approach taken by a bankrupt, international law breaking nation, which partnered with England and the bankers, a leadership of corrupt, law- breaking nations and their investors which conjured up the CFR/Council on Foreign Relations which eventually formed the United Nations:

1876 – King Kalakaua signed a Fraud Deed over to two ancestors, Mataio Kekuanaoa and Grace Kamaikui who
had died 8-9 years previously.

The fraud deed is the basis of a claim made by the U.S. government that they own Pearl Harbor (in other
words, the criminal claim did result in hundreds of thousands of Innocent people to die needlessly in the
progressive wars.

Under duress, with a gun to his head, King Kalakaua signed a Constitution prepared by the Americans. The
Constitution was named “the Bayonnet Constitution” by his sister, then Princess Liliuokalani later known as
Queen Liliuokalani.

1878 – U.S. interested in Hawaii as a strategic zone, along with the Samoan Islands, and Aetearoa – the group of
recognized nations known as the Pacific Empire and recognized under the Laws of Nations:

* Americans investing in the 1878 Pacific Cable Company for the purposes of informing the U.S. that Japan
ships were passing the islands. The U.S. was fearful of the Japanese entering San Francisco Bay and that it
would take more than 10 years to get them out.

Reference: VALOR OF IGNORANCE by Homer Lea and parts such as the strategic maps entered in Affidavit/
Lien No. 96-177455 filed on 12/17/96 (281 pages) by Amelia Gora.

1887 – King David Kalakaua’s House of Nobles denied the loan request by the U.S. representative because the
U.S. would not pay back for thousands of years and only small amounts of interest would be paid over time.

1892 – More of the Conspiracies against the Hawaiian nation, the head Queen Liliuokalani found in research:

* Conspiracies, pirating of Alii’s genealogies, wealth, lands recorded by criminal Americans in Hawaii.

* meeting in Makua, Oahu by BF Tracy, a U.S. Representative and Thurston, et. als.

Reference: Bureau of Conveyances Affidavit, Lien No. 96-177455 filed on 12/17/96 (281 pages) by
Amelia Gora

* Thomas Akaka, ancestor of Daniel Akaka – whose name is used for the ‘Akaka Bill’, helped to plan the
dethronement of Queen Liliuokalani with his association, meetings with Dr. Mott Smith, Thurston, et. als.
in Washington, D.C.

Reference: Doctor Mott-Smith’s book; history research

* Hundreds of Masons/Freemasons – those supporting criminal acts to dethrone the Queen, arrived in
the Hawaiian Islands, parading, giving speeches, celebrating a building, and claiming ‘Hawaii to be their
home city’.

* Premeditation of overthrowing Queen Liliuokalani due to U.S. Naval ships docked in Hawaii without
authorization by our neutral, non-violent, friendly nation.

* Premeditation of overthrowing Queen Liliuokalani when the ship BOSTON arrived to replace the other
U.S. naval ship arrived for further orders.

* Congressional orders documented on January 8, 1893 and posted in the New York Times on January 9, 1893
which informed the conspirator’s that the troops would be landed.

Reference: NEW YORK TIMES, January 9, 1893 article PEARL HARBOR COALING STATION – Imperative
Necessity that the United States Take Possession found by researcher Shane Lee.

* January 16, 1893 – “three companies of bluejackets, one of artillery, one of marines, 154 men, and
10 officers; with 14,000 cartridges for rifles and the Gatling gun, 1,900 revolver cartridges, and 174 explosive
shells for the revolving cannon. These forces were landed, on foreign soil, not at the request of the lawful
Government – the Governor of Oahu promptly sent a formal note of protest to Minister Stevens -
representating 88,000 of the population….”

* January 16, 1893 – the Queen, the lawful government, and the subjects were under stress, duress,
usurpation, and coercion.

* January 17, 1893 – Queen Liliuokalani was illegally dethroned by treasonous person, supported by the
U.S. government et. als. (England, and the Morgan bankers who were the investors for the bankrupt nations
in the Wall Street stock markets…..both U.S., England were bankrupt and ill able to treaty due to their
American Civil War investments, etc.).

A legal oppostion was served to the U.S.

* Oppositions to Annexation made by Queen Liliuokalani and her 40,000+ subjects.

Reference:

Signatures of 22,000 subjects found by Noelani Silva.

OPPOSITION to Annexation official documents was only recently found by researcher Kiliwehi Kekumano. It lay hidden away in the National Archives. It is not the same as the one found at the Archives, Honolulu, Oahu.

1898 – War against Spain was deliberately made enncouraged by the Hearst newspapers. Spain did not bomb the MAINE as claimed by the newspapers but due to the ship’s own doing.

Spain’s representative in Hawaii approached Sanford B. Dole’s entity Provisional government turned Republic and asked about the status of neutrality. Dole’s group denied neutrality, and did not align themselved with the Hawaiian government.

Spain lost and gave up the Phillipines, etc.

At France’s, et. als. prompting, the move to assume the Hawaiian Islands were made.

1900 – ORGANIC ACT set up to protect Americans in Hawaii, and disregard the aboriginal Hawaiians/ kanaka
maoli:

1993 – Admission of wrongs made through P.L. 103-150 ‘Apology Law’ signed by U.S. President Clinton.

2010 – AKAKA Bill set up to make corrections on the flaws in the ORGANIC ACT which is the foundation of the U.S. pirating activities in our Hawaiian Islands:

The following came off one of the ” Kingdom of Hawaii” (To date there are 40+ groups calling themselves the Hawaiian government/Hawaiian nation/Hawaiian Kingdom, etc.) website:

Chapter 339.––An Act To provide a government for the Territory of Hawaii.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

Chapter 1. General Provisions.

§ 1. Definitions.

That the phrase “the laws of Hawaii,” as used in this Act without qualifying words, shall mean the constitution and laws of the Republic of Hawaii, in force on the twelfth day of August, eighteen hundred and ninety-eight, at the time of the transfer of the sovereignty of the Hawaiian Islands to the United States of America.
The constitution and statute laws of the Republic of Hawaii then in force, set forth in a compilation made by Sidney M. Ballou under the authority of the legislature, and published in two volumes entitled “Civil Laws” and “Penal Laws,” respectively, and in the Session Laws of the Legislature for the session of eighteen hundred and ninety-eight, are referred to in this Act as “Civil Laws,” “Penal Laws,” and “Session Laws.”

§ 2. Territory of Hawaii.

That the islands acquired by the United States of America under an Act of Congress entitled “Joint resolution to provide for annexing the Hawaiian Islands to the United States,” approved July seventh, eighteen hundred and ninety-eight, shall be known as the Territory of Hawaii.

§ 3. Government of the Territory of Hawaii.

That a Territorial government is hereby established over the said Territory, with its capital at Honolulu, on the island of Oahu.

(editor’s note: is it legal to establish an already internationally recognized nation?)

§ 4. Citizenship.

That

all persons who were citizens of the Republic of Hawaii on August twelfth, eighteen hundred and ninety-eight, are hereby declared to be citizens of the United States and citizens of the Territory of Hawaii.

And all citizens of the United States resident in the Hawaiian Islands who were resident there on or since August twelfth, eighteen hundred and ninety-eight and all the citizens of the United States who shall hereafter reside in the Territory of Hawaii for one year shall be citizens of the Territory of Hawaii.

(editor’s note: recognition of aboriginal Hawaiians/kanaka maoli disregarded; therefore looked at as non-citizens……………because the true government went “under ground” that basically means it still exists! and the subjects are still subjects of the true government.)

§ 5. United States Constitution.

That the Constitution, and, except as otherwise provided, all the laws of the United States, including laws carrying general appropriations, which are not locally inapplicable, shall have the same force and effect within the said Territory as elsewhere in the United States; Provided, That sections 1841 to 1891, inclusive, 1910 and 1912, of the Revised Statutes, and the amendments thereto, and an act entitled “An act to prohibit the passage of local or special laws in the Territories of the United States, to limit Territorial indebtedness, and for other purposes,” approved July 30, 1886, and the amendments thereto, shall not apply to Hawaii. Annotations.

(editor’s note: with special applications, this is evidence that Hawaii is truly not part of the U.S.; it only gives the appearance that Hawaii is likened to the U.S. but not/is not.)

§ 6. Laws of Hawaii.

That the laws of Hawaii not inconsistent with the Constitution or laws of the United States or the provisions of this Act shall continue in force, subject to repeal or amendment by the legislature of Hawaii or the Congress of the United States.

************************
Editor’s Notes: only parts of the 1900 Organic Act was commented on; however, the Act is entirely illegal, and the intent of the Akaka Bill is to perpetuate the frauds of those such as Senator A kaka/Akaka, dishonest Akaka et. als. who continues the treasonous activities of his ancestor Thomas Akaka and kowtows to the PIRATES OF THE WORLD through it’s Congress, government imperialistic moves to perpetuate PIRACIES ON THE HIGH SEAS, and disregarding the rules of Laws, breaching International Laws, criminally assuming monies, properties that they legally have NO claims, no rights to.

Queen Liliuokalani did say that if they fail to make corrections, they will fall apart……and Opposition continues in their criminal moves to pass the Akaka Bill also known as H.R. 2314 and S. 1011 and deny the U.S., their entities jurisdiction in, over, under, around our Hawaiian Islands.

Continued Oppositions, Eviction notices, Banning of Depleted Uranium/DU use, etc. in Hawaii is hereby publicly recorded.

Sincerely,
Amelia Gora, a Royal person, one of the descendants of
Kauikeaouli/Kamehameha III’s children/adopted children, one of
the owners of the Crown Lands, etc., a Royal families representative,
Acting Liaison of Foreign Affairs, and a living human being

 Proclaiming Liberty Throughout The Land

John Baptist Kotmair, Jr., Fiduciary

 
Liberty Works Radio Network, (www.lwrn.net),has a complete lineup of the best talk show hosts in radio, and deserves your faithful support!
 
LWRN is pleased to announce that on February 10th Alex Jones was added to the lineup, he is on from 12 PM to 3 PM Eastern time Monday through Friday, giving LWRN the ability to cover the complete Patriotic informational spectrum. In Alex Jones, LWRN has one of the most far-reaching investigative reporters concerning the globalist movement. He is well known for exposing American traitors, and their every move to subvert our Constitutional Republic. If you are unaware of Alex, you will be amazed at the factual accuracy of his reports. Alex has braved all forms of threats and harassments. We have available a video of Alex being manhandled and spirited away from a George W. Bush re-election rally for his second term for Governor of Texas, and dumped on a deserted road for just asking a question of Bush about he, and his family’s globalist connections. It is a must see, which we will forward for a donation of at least $9.00. Just send your request to LWRN, 12 Carroll Street, Westminster, Maryland 21157, and ask for the video entitled The Real George W. Bush, Mr. Gestapo!!
 
In Glen Beck, Mark Levin and Imus, LWRN has three of the most well known hosts that are accepted authorities by a great number within the Tea Party movement. Their presences brings newly awaken Patriots to LWRN, and exposes them to our Patriot hosts who work tirelessly trying to awaken Americans to their heritage of individual freedom, giving evidence that the Founders created a government whose only function is to secure man’s God Given Rights. It does not matter whether Beck, Levin and Imus are for real or not, they only know what they know, as long as they serve the function of bringing Patriots to be educated.
Beck’s producer called me on February 5th to discuss the unlawful injunction against Save-A-Patriot Fellowship, its staff, and myself violating our secured First Amendment Rights. He had been on the SAPF website, and read all about it. He concluded the conversation by saying that they would get back.
 
At this time, e-mails are flying throughout the Patriot community berating Glen Beck for his comments about Debra Medina, the Patriot candidate for the Governorship of the State of Texas. While being interviewed by Beck, Medina answered his question regarding the alleged government involvement in the 9/11 terrorist attacks, that some serious questions have been raised that deserve to be answered. After the interview, Beck made statements on his show that would give rise to her qualifications to be Governor upsetting Patriots, and caused a stream of demands that he be removed from the LWRN lineup. Our answer to these demands is that such confrontations build audiences, and keep the issue alive for debate, which is the heart of Talk Radio. If we would keep LWRN voice pure Patriot slant, we would be curtailing our reach to the choir only. We cannot become what we despise. THINK ABOUT IT!
 
LWRN hosts Tommy Cryer, Joe Banister, Bobby D., Patrick Gibson, Schuler “Rocky” Reidel, Michael Benoit, Michael Slattery and David Carmichael, give LWRN the knowledge and ability to inform the newly awakened Americans of things about our form of government, and how it is not, but should be operating within the law. Teaching things that are no longer, but should be, taught in our educational institutions. These hosts are filling in the voids that make it easy for any person of average intelligence to identify those conspiratorial individuals who are violating the law to further their desires for global government, causing political and financial havoc to our every day existence. Hopefully, these hosts will play a major role in keeping the Tea Party movement from being hijacked by the globalist, as was such movements in the past.
 
Yes, LWRN is unique in its ability to offset the establishment media propaganda, rendering it to no effect, helping to get America back to political and economical sanity. It must not, and cannot fail. Please do everything within your power to help financially, LWRN’s very existence depends on it. Bills must be paid for this crucial educational effort to continue. Forward whatever amount you can afford, no matter how small immediately, time is of the essence. Also, make every effort to build the LWRN Fellowship, 27 cents a day does not hurt anyone’s pocketbook. Such a pittance donated by enough Patriots will make the expansion of Truth in Broadcasting a reality throughout our Republic. As stated in the February issue of the Liberty Tree newsletter, all it will take is for each LWRN Fellowship member to recruit one new member per month, and our bills are taken care of. Again, please send whatever you can now, do not put it off; America’s future, and that of LWRN is in your hands. We are poised to do the job, whether we have the opportunity to become a major media source, rivaling the establishment media, IS UP TO YOU!
God Bless you, and Our Republic, may we preserve it for our posterity.

Executive Summary

A two-year study involving five independent research laboratories in the

United States, Canada and the Netherlands has found up to 232 toxic

chemicals in the umbilical cord blood of 10 babies from racial and ethnic

minority groups. The findings constitute hard evidence that each child was

exposed to a host of dangerous substances while still in its mother’s womb.

The research, commissioned by the Environmental Working Group in

partnership with Rachel’s Network, marks the most extensive investigation

of the particular environmental health risks faced by children of African

American, Hispanic and Asian heritage.

The laboratory analyses represent the first reported detections in American

newborns for 21 contaminants. Among them:

Bisphenol A (BPA),

a derivative of the petrochemical benzene essential to the manufacture of toughpolycarbonate plastic and epoxy resins that are fabricated into a wide variety of modern products, including

metal food cans, hard plastic infant formula bottles, water bottles, safety helmets and glasses, television,

computer and cell phone housings, compact discs and high performance coatings. BPA is a synthetic

estrogen that researchers have found to disrupt the endocrine system, disrupt normal reproductive system

development and diminish test animals’ intellectual and behavioral capacity.

Tetrabromobisphenol A (TBBPA),

a fire retardant for circuit boards that interferes with thyroid functionand may inhibit the production of T cells the body uses to fight disease, undermining immune defenses

against bacteria, viruses and cancer. TBBPA can break down to BPA, and when incinerated it creates

brominated dioxins, which are considered likely human carcinogens.

Galaxolide and Tonalide,

polycyclic musks that are synthetic fragrances in cosmetics, laundry detergentand other scented products and that have been detected in numerous biomonitoring studies of pollution in

people and in the aquatic environment.

Perfluorobutanoic acid (PFBA, or C4),

a member of the perfluorocarbon (PFC) chemical family used tomake non-stick, grease-, stain- and water-resistant coatings for consumer products, including brands

Teflon, Scotchgard and Goretex. The most studied PFCs, the Teflon chemical PFOA and the Scotchgard

chemical PFOS, are linked to cancer, birth defects and infertility. PFCs are extremely persistent in the

environment. There is almost no toxicological data for PFBA in the public domain.

Previously Undetected Polychlorinated biphenyls

(PCBs). Developed as industrial lubricants, coolants andinsulating materials, also used in caulk, PCBs were effectively banned in the late 1970s but are long-lasting

in the environment. The U.S. government lists PCBs as probable human carcinogens. According

scientists, PCBs have been shown to disrupt the endocrine system and damage the

immune system, and are toxic to the developing brain.

Some racial and ethnic minority communities in the U.S.

experience disproportionate exposures to environmental

pollution (Brulle and Pellow 2006). Whether through poverty or

EWG Minority Cord Blood Report Executive Summary | E… http://www.ewg.org/minoritycordblood/executivesummary

1 of 3 2/14/2010 1:09 AM

This study is EWG’s eleventh biomonitoring

investigation. To date, EWG studies have

found 414 industrial chemicals, pollutants and

pesticides in 186 people, from newborns to

grandparents. Our goal is to quantify the

pollution in people, or what we call the

“human toxome,” and to drive science and

policy changes to protect public health.

The Centers for Disease Control and

Prevention (CDC) has published biomonitoring

study results involving thousands of people

nationwide over the past decade. Its next

report, the fourth in a series, is expected to

list detections of more than 200 pollutants

found in representative samples of the U.S.

population.

EWG’s biomonitoring program complements

the CDC in three key respects:

1. More chemicals:

CDC looks for fewerchemicals, but in larger, statistically

representative samples of the U.S.population.

EWG studies typically look for more chemicals

than the CDC, but in smaller sample cohorts.

EWG has detected more than 414 chemicals in

people, compared to 203 reported by the

CDC. EWG relies on specialized laboratories

around the world to maximize the scope of its

analyses.

2. Mixtures in each person:

Mixtures in eachperson:

3. Early life exposures:

CDC tests adults andchildren age 6 and up. The agency rarely tests

cord blood or infants. EWG studies include

cord blood, infants and toddlers to help

document exposures during the most

vulnerable periods of development.

historical patterns of discrimination, some are more likely to live

near busy roads, industrial sites and in older housing. These

factors, combined with workplace exposures, diet and use of

certain consumer products, may lead to greater contamination

with chemicals. When combined with poor nutrition and health,

the adverse effects of having a greater chemical body burden

can be aggravated.

In spite of the acute need to understand prenatal exposures in

all segments of American society, EWG could find no studies that

examined the chemical body burden in the womb for minority

children. This study is a first attempt to fill that void.

The 10 children in this study were born between December 2007

and June 2008 in Michigan, Florida, Massachusetts, California

and Wisconsin. They are otherwise anonymous.

We have no way of knowing anything about the homes and

neighborhoods into which they were born. This study tested for

chemicals that can be found in virtually every American

household. We did not test for chemicals, such as the

byproducts of smoking or alcohol consumption, that would

indicate behaviors by the mother that could in any way

jeopardize the health of the child. We also did not test for

chemicals from local pollution sources.

We cannot determine how chemical exposures in utero may vary

from one community to another, but our results strongly suggest

that the health of all children is threatened by trace amounts of

hundreds of synthetic chemicals coursing through their bodies

from the earliest stages of life.

The contaminants found in these children are from unintended

exposures to some of the most problematic consumer product

and commercial chemicals ever put on the market. Their

presence in fetal cord blood represents a significant failure on

the part of the Congress and government agencies charged with

protecting human health.

Scientists know far too little about the health threats posed by

exposure to toxic chemicals in the womb. There is broad

agreement, however, that the dangers are greater when

exposure occurs before birth. Just how much more dangerous is

not known.

Brominated flame retardants, PCBs, the Teflon chemical PFOA and the Scotchgard chemical PFOS, BPA, lead,

mercury, perchlorate, dioxins and furans are all considered either likely human carcinogens, serious neurotoxins or

well-established hormone disrupters, according to government health authorities. Many are strongly linked to more

than one of these effects.

Recommendations

Government, academic and independent biomonitoring studies, including those by EWG, have detected up to 358

industrial chemicals, pesticides and pollutants in the cord blood of American infants. Exploring the so-called

“additive” effects of possible carcinogens, hormone disrupters and neurotoxins is a new and urgent priority for

environmental health scientists. EWG supports this very important work.

But as this science moves forward, we need to act now to reduce exposures that present the greatest health

threats based on what we know today, even as scientists struggle to understand how the cocktail of chemicals in

the womb could harm current and future generations.

Many of the up to 232 compounds detected in this study have been the target of regulatory action and government

controls. As a rule, however, these actions came far too late, well after the environment and the human race were

polluted to a degree that has raised serious health concerns. Our failure to act quickly has ensured that these

chemicals will continue to pollute future generations for decades, even centuries to come.

EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson has identified several of the substances found in this study as priority chemicals of

concern. These include BPA, brominated flame retardants and the entire class of perfluorinated (Teflon and

Scotchgard) chemicals.

In our view, any chemical found in cord blood should be a top candidate for tough regulatory action to protect

public health.

To ensure a full accounting of chemical exposure before birth, we recommend that the CDC initiate a

comprehensive cord blood-testing program. This work should be coordinated with ongoing biomonitoring in the

National Children’s Study but should seek to identify and quantify the full extent of chemical exposures in the

womb over time. The complete costs of this work must be borne by industry.

Tomgram: Engelhardt, Fear Inc.Hold Onto Your Underwear
This Is Not a National Emergency
By Tom EngelhardtLet me put American life in the Age of Terror into some kind of context, and then tell me you’re not ready to get on the nearest plane heading anywhere, even toward Yemen.

In 2008, 14,180 Americans were murdered, according to the FBI.  In that year, there were 34,017 fatal vehicle crashes in the U.S. and, so the U.S. Fire Administration tells us, 3,320 deaths by fire.  More than 11,000 Americans died of the swine flu between April and mid-December 2009, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; on average, a staggering 443,600 Americans die yearly of illnesses related to tobacco use, reports the American Cancer Society; 5,000 Americans die annually from food-borne diseases; an estimated 1,760 children died from abuse or neglect in 2007; and the next year, 560 Americans died of weather-related conditions, according to the National Weather Service, including 126 from tornadoes, 67 from rip tides, 58 from flash floods, 27 from lightning, 27 from avalanches, and 1 from a dust devil.

As for airplane fatalities, no American died in a crash of a U.S. carrier in either 2007 or 2008, despite 1.5 billion passengers transported.  In 2009, planes certainly went down and people died.  In June, for instance, a French flight on its way from Rio de Janeiro to Paris disappeared in bad weather over the Atlantic, killing 226.  Continental Connection Flight 3407, a regional commuter flight, crashed into a house near Buffalo, New York, that February killing 50, the first fatal crash of a U.S. commercial flight since August 2006.  And in January 2009, US Airways Flight 1549, assaulted by a flock of birds, managed a brilliant landing in New York’s Hudson River when disaster might have ensued.  In none of these years did an airplane go down anywhere due to terrorism, though in 2007 two terrorists smashed a Jeep Cherokee loaded with propane tanks into the terminal of Glasgow International Airport. (No one was killed.)

The now-infamous Northwest Airlines Flight 253, carrying Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab and his bomb-laden underwear toward Detroit on Christmas Day 2009, had 290 passengers and crew, all of whom survived.  Had the inept Abdulmutallab actually succeeded, the death toll would not have equaled the 324 traffic fatalities in Nevada in 2008; while the destruction of four Flight 253s from terrorism would not have equaled New York State’s 2008 traffic death toll of 1,231, 341 of whom, or 51 more than those on Flight 253, were classified as “alcohol-impaired fatalities.

Had the 23-year-old Nigerian set off his bomb, it would have been a nightmare for the people on board, and a tragedy for those who knew them.  It would certainly have represented a safety and security issue that needed to be dealt with.  But it would not have been a national emergency, nor a national-security crisis.  It would have been nothing more than a single plane knocked out of the sky, something that happens from time to time without the intervention of terrorists.

Is Iran Running a Bluff?
by Patrick J. Buchanan

Did Robert Gibbs let the cat out of the bag?

Last week, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told the world that Iran, unable to get fuel rods from the West for its U.S.-built reactor, which makes medical isotopes, had begun to enrich its own uranium to 20 percent.

From his perch in the West Wing, Gibbs scoffed: He [Ahmadinejad] says many things, and many of them turn out to be untrue. We do not believe they have the capability to enrich to the degree to which they now say they are enriching.

But wait a minute. If Iran does not have the capability to enrich to 20 percent for fuel rods, how can Iran enrich to 90 percent for a bomb?

What was Gibbs implying?

Is he confirming reports that Irans centrifuges are breaking down or have been sabotaged? Is he saying that impurities, such as molybdenum, in the feed stock of Irans centrifuges at Natanz are damaging the centrifuges and contaminating the uranium?

What explains Gibbs confidence? Perhaps this.

According to a report last week by David Albright and Christina Walrond of the Institute for Science and International Security, Irans problems in its centrifuge program are greater than expected. Iran is unlikely to deploy enough gas centrifuges to make enriched uranium for commercial nuclear power reactors [Iran's stated nuclear goal] for a long time, if ever, particularly if [UN] sanctions remain in force.

Thus, ISIS is saying Iran cannot make usable fuel for the nuclear power plant it is building, and Gibbs is saying Iran lacks the capability to make fuel rods for its research reactor.

Which suggests Irans vaunted nuclear program is a busted flush.

ISIS insists, however, that Iran may still be able to build a bomb. Yet, to do that, Iran would have to divert nearly all of its low-enriched uranium at Natanz, now under UN watch, to a new cascade of centrifuges, enrich that to 90 percent, then explode a nuclear device.

Should Iran do that, however, it would have burned up all its bomb-grade uranium and lack enough low-enriched uranium for a second test. And Tehran would be facing a stunned and shaken Israel with hundreds of nukes and an America with thousands, without a single nuke of its own.

Is Iran running a bluff? And if Gibbs and Albright are right, how long can Iran keep up this pretense of rapid nuclear progress?

Which brings us to the declaration by Ahmadinejad on the 31st anniversary of the Islamic Revolution, which produced this headline in the New York Times: Iran Boasts of Capacity to Make Bomb Fuel.

Accurate as far as it went, this headline was so incomplete as to mislead. For here is what Ahmadinejad said in full:

When we say that we dont build nuclear bombs, it means that we wont do so because we dont believe in having it. The Iranian nation is brave enough that if one day we wanted to build nuclear bombs, we would announce it publicly without being afraid of you.

Right now in Natanz we have the capability to enrich to more than 20 percent and to more than 80 percent, but because we dont need to, we wont do so.

On Friday, Ahmadinejad sounded like Ronald Reagan: We believe that not only the Middle East but the whole world should be free of nuclear weapons, because we see such weapons as inhumane.

Now, if as Albright suggests, Tehran cannot produce fuel for nuclear power plants, and if, as Gibbs suggests, Iran is not capable of enriching to 20 percent for fuel for its research reactor, is Ahmadinejad, in renouncing the bomb, making a virtue of necessity?

After all, if you cant build them, denounce them as inhumane.

Last December, however, the Times of London reported it had a secret document, which intelligence agencies dated to early 2007, proving that Iran was working on the final component of a neutron initiator, the trigger for an atom bomb.

If true, this would leave egg all over the faces of 16 U.S. intelligence agencies whose December 2007 consensus was that Iran stopped seeking a bomb in 2003.

The Times credited an Asian intelligence service for having ably assisted with its story.

U.S. intelligence, however, has not confirmed the authenticity of the document, and Iran calls it a transparent forgery. When former CIA man Phil Giraldi sounded out ex-colleagues still in the trade, they, too, called the Times document a forgery.

Shades of Saddam seeking yellowcake from Niger.

Are the folks who lied us into war on Iraq, to strip it of weapons it did not have, now trying to lie us into war on Iran, to strip it of weapons it does not have?

Maybe the Senate should find out before voting sanctions that will put us on the road to such a war, which would fill up all the empty beds at Walter Reed.

Irans Ahmadinejad Strikes Again

by Eric Margolis

[Eric Margolis is contributing foreign editor for Sun National Media Canada. He is the author of War at the Top of the World and the new book, American Raj: Liberation or Domination?: Resolving the Conflict Between the West and the Muslim World.]

To fete the 31st anniversary of the 1979 Iranian Revolution, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad gleefully announced his nation will enrich uranium to 20%.

The bombastic Ahmadinejad seems to delight in provoking howls of outrage from the West. They were not long in coming.

Western media and politicians loudly denounced Irans latest nuclear effort, claiming it would put Tehran within striking distance of achieving the 8590% enrichment needed for nuclear weapons.

Meanwhile, the Florida-based US Central Command has been busy reinforcing US military units and Arab allies in the Gulf to counter any potential Iranian retaliation for an American attack.

In fact, the latest Iranian-American brouhaha was pretty much a tempest in a nuclear teapot.

Iran will only enrich 22 lbs of low-grade uranium to 20% level in order to fuel a small research reactor in Tehran to produce medical isotopes for cancer treatment and imaging. Iran insists it has no plans to produce nuclear weapons.

Tehran has offered to swap its low-enriched uranium for fuel rods from Europe and Russia. But Iran says the swap must be simultaneous, while the US-led Western powers demand Iran hand over its 22 lbs of uranium first, then get the fuel rods at some later date if it behaves.

This rather silly fracas comes as Iran slowly develops a nuclear power industry to produce what it maintains will be electricity. Irans oil is being depleted. Forty other nations are at similar or more advanced stages of nuclear power generation. This is all quite legal under UN nuclear agency rules.

Both UN nuclear inspectors and US intelligence say there is no evidence Iran is developing nuclear weapons. Documents purporting to show Iran working on nuclear warheads have been debunked as fakes.

But this did not stop US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from insisting Iran was working on nuclear weapons. Apparently, she puts more credence in Israels intelligence estimates than those of the United States.

She also blasted Iran for becoming “a military dictatorship,” seemingly heedless of the fact that Egypt, one of Americas key Arab allies, has been a military dictatorship for decades. Or that Washington is now all smiles and hugs with the ghastly dictatorship in Uzbekistan where opponents of the regime are boiled alive. Such selective morality is a leading cause of anti-Americanism around the globe.

Meanwhile, nuclear-armed Israel and its American partisans warn Iran is rapidly developing nuclear weapons and demand severe sanctions or war. European nations with right-wing governments also support the US position more out of fear of the economic disruptions a US-Iranian conflict would bring than out of fear of Iran, a major European trading partner.

Why does Iran keep provoking Western anger, defying the Security Council, inviting sanctions, and risking devastating Israeli attack when it could simply buy fuel rods from Europe that cannot be used for nuclear weapons?

Thirty-one years ago Iranians overthrew the hated, US-backed monarchy of Reza Shah Pahlavi. The revolution was led by an exiled Shia cleric, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and an old university friend of mine, Sadegh Ghotbzadeh. This historic uprising was ignited by Iranians anger at being misruled by a Western-installed despot who mocked Islam, allowed his rapacious family to loot the nation, and spent billions on US and British arms when his people went hungry and illiterate.

The dreaded US and Israeli-trained secret police, Savak, kept the Shah in power through a reign of terror and torture. Iranians later blamed the US and Britain for engineering and financing Saddam Husseins 1980 invasion of Iran which cost one million Iranian casualties.

In the 1970s, Dick Cheney and Don Rumsfeld went to Tehran to offer to sell the Shahs regime 31 nuclear reactors. Israel reportedly offered to swap medium-range missiles with nuclear warheads for oil. But after the revolution, Iran was declared a “terrorist regime” when Khomeini demanded that Mideast oil money be shared by its people rather than go to 1,400 Saudi princes and other US-supported monarchies, and championed the Palestinian cause.

Nuclear power has become Irans key national issue. Ali Khamenei, Irans current spiritual guide, claims Britain and the US are determined to deny the Muslim world modern technology in order to keep it backwards, weak, and forced to buy Western arms and exports. Imperial Britain did the same to India, keeping its colony economically backwards for two centuries,

For most Iranians, developing nuclear power means breaking out of their Western-imposed technological ghetto and modernization. Its a matter of profound national pride and defiance: Iran was repeatedly invaded by Britain and Russia, its governments were overthrown by Western powers, and its oil exploited.

Nuclear technology offers independence, and, potentially, weapons for self-defense, if Tehran so chooses. This writer has long believed that one day Iran will opt to deploy nuclear weapons for self-defense. The Western and Israeli claim that Tehrans “mad mullahs” are intent on inflicting worldwide nuclear doomsday is ludicrous and absurd.

To Western dismay, most of the current Iranian protest movements leaders back its nuclear program. If Ahmadinejad were replaced, Irans nuclear efforts would continue unless the US and Britain managed to achieve their strategy of imposing a new, compliant royalist regime in Tehran.

In the Iranian view, if France and Britain, and neighbors Russia, Israel, Pakistan, and India (now with US help) can have nuclear arms, why cant Iran at least boil water for tea using nuclear energy?

9/11 UNVEILED” by the author of “THE WAR ON ISLAM”
Reports:
From Fighting Foreclosures at City Hall & Sacramento
to Building International Solidarity
with the Philippines and Haiti


This month we would like to thank all of the organizations named below who took the lead in defending and helping to unify working and poor people both here and abroad. It is a real tribute to the spirit of resistance, unity and militance that Black History Month commemorates.

Chronology of February Activism

Mayor Villaraigosa:
‘Declare a State of Emergency

Protest occurred February 3rd – Initiated by Hermandad Mexicana Trans-Nacional &
IAC/Bail Out the People Movement

In pictures: The first woman on the left is Maria Ortiz. She, her two children and two sisters were thrown out of their North Hollywood apartment at gunpoint by Sheriffs who used at battering ram to knock in her door, then – in spite of warnings about children being present – sprayed pepper spray into the home, causing the children to cry. Maria, her children and sisters were forced to live in a car from that point on.

In the middle is Gloria Saucedo of Hermandad Mexicana Trans-Nacional.

Next to Gloria (to her right) is Blanca Ordonez who was also foreclosed and evicted. The real estate company that bought the home had two U-Haul trucks pull up to her home and forced their way in and took all of her belongings and put them in storage. Some of her jewelry, however, went missing.

PRESS CONFERENCE TO FIGHTBACK:
At 12:30 pm with 6 news outlets witnessing, members of SEIU Local 721, Hermandad Mexicana Trans-Nacional, Bail Out the People Movement and a newly formed organization within Hermandad called Committee to Save Our Homes — made up of families facing foreclosure –
demanded that Mayor Villaraigosa call on Gov. Schwarzenneger to Declare a State of Emergency as required by the  California Emergency Act and a subsequent moratorium on foreclosures and evictions.

Everyone then proceeded into City Hall to visit the mayor and were allowed to go into his chambers to the office of Deputy Mayor Larry Frank. Frank spent about 40 minutes with the group and, given the pressure he was under, found motel housing for Blanca Ordonez and Maria Ortiz.

Activists thanked them for listening and providing some immediate aid but made the point over and over that this was not enough and that the only solution would be a declaration that the City and State were in a State of Emergency and that a declaration of this fact was needed to stop foreclosures immediately.

Frank then got a city council official to schedule a meeting with Gloria Saucedo, head of Hermandad Mexicana Trans-Nacional, at her office the following day to discuss the moratorium.

At the press conference Gloria announced that there would be a bus leaving for Sacramento the following week to make the same demands on the governor — to be continued …


Emergency Protest at Philippine Consulate
February 9th
initiated by BAYAN-USA

 

Torrential rains can’t deter a fighting spirit
About 40 protesters gather outside of the Philippine Consulate

BAYAN-USA issued an urgent appeal for solidarity for the 43 doctors, nurses, and health workers that were illegally arrested and detained in Rizal, Philippines  on February 6, 2010. These health workers were participating in a ‘First Responders’ health training to be more prepared to serve the poor communities.

So, in spite of torrential rains, about 40 activists representing various clergy, international and national social justice organizations gathered outside of the Filipino Consulate. Activists then proceeded into the many-storied office building housing the consulate and crammed inside of the consulate waiting room. An immediate meeting was secured and representatives (including Kusella Hilo, chair of BAYAN-USA; Terrie Cervas, vice chair of Gabriella-USA; Melixa Rojas of BAYAN a recent victim of torture in the Philippines by its government’s military; Chito Quijano of ILPS; Marie Hilao Enriquez, chair of Karapatan; and John Parker of the International Action Center/Bail Out the People Movement) met with the Consul General for nearly an hour demanding that the 43 be released and not harmed. A petition stating these demands and signed by many international and national organizations and activists was delivered at that time to the Consul General.

Protesters Confront Schwarzenneger
Demand he “Terminate Foreclosures”
Occurred February 10 – Initiated by Hermandad Mexicana Trans-Nacional & IAC/Bail Out the People Movement

Leaving at 2a.m. on the bus from Los Angeles County

 

Hearing and Testimony before Assembly Member Pedro Nava

   
Outside of the state capitol during press conference. On left a 14-year old tells of her horrible experience during an eviction; Right –  Assembly Member Nava, who earlier pledged to urge the governor to call for a state of emergency, addresses activists and press.

Over 50 people, predominantly Latino/a and majority women, who have either lost a home through foreclosure or are facing foreclosure took a bus up to Sacramento on February 10th to demand an immediate response from the governor declaring a State of Emergency in California. The governor’s declaration is required by the California Emergency Act whenever the safety and health of a significant number of its residents are in jeopardy and the local and state governments are ill equipped to deal with such a crisis.

A letter was presented to both State Assembly member Pedro Nava and to a staff person for Governor Arnold Schwarzenneger.

During a packed meeting in Assembly chambers, after hearing testimonies of the brutal nature of evictions due to foreclosure, (sometimes at gunpoint aimed at children by Sheriffs) State Assembly member Nava pledged he would sign on to a demand for the governor to issue an immediate declaration of a State of Emergency.

No such pledge was given from the governor to protesters lined up outside of and knocking on his office doors. After about 20 minutes, realizing protesters weren’t going anywhere, in spite of the growing police presence, a staff person came out to accept the letter from protesters.

When Arnold did finally come out of his office hours later to speak at an unrelated press conference — some of the activists who remained waiting for him quickly began chanting “Terminate Foreclosures.” While not even flexing a muscle, he turned to the chanters, grimaced and quickly fled without uttering “I’ll be back.”

Clarity, Solidarity and
Over $2,000 Raised!
A Benefit in Solidarity

with the People of Haiti


Occurred Saturday February 13th – Initiated by SEIU Local 721 Latino Caucus; Global Women’s Strike; BAYAN-USA; IAC/Bail Out the People Movement; Hermandad Mexicana Trans-Nacional; Payday

    


Left: Featured speaker, Robert Roth of Haiti Action Committee addresses SEIU Local 721 members and community activists at the Local.

 


Left: Margaret Prescod provides clarity on Haiti and its history. John Parker and Terrie Cervas MC the program.


Arturo Velasquez of March 4th National Student Protest to Defend Education

SOLIDARITY WITH HAITI:
Women’s organizations, Filipino, Latina/o and other social justice organizations joined with SEIU Local 721 Latino Caucus to respond to the devastating earthquake and the genocidal actions of the Pentagon by raising money and solidarity with Haiti.

Rosie Martinez, executive board member of SEIU Local 721 and chair of the Latino Caucus opened the program and invited the community to get more involved in the union caucuses. Marva, representing the Latino Caucus, pointed out that many union members, like herself, are from the Caribbean and are very concerned about their sisters and brothers in Haiti.

Terrie Cervas of BAYAN-USA and John Parker of the IAC/Bail Out the People Movement Mc’d the event which heard moving and thought-provoking talks from Robert Roth of Haiti Action Committee and Margaret Prescod of Global Women’s Strike. They both exposed how aid is being used as a political weapon against Haiti and the importance of donating to organizations dedicated to sending 100% of the aid to grassroots organizations and not relying on the American Red Cross which has not used the aid they’ve collected to significantly ease the crisis. They compared the aid distribution to that of FEMA which neglected Katrina victims in New Orleans in spite of tremendous resources at its disposal.


A billboard in South Central Los Angeles indicates the close collaboration between the American Red Cross with the U.S. military, which has sabotaged aid to Haiti.

Arturo Velasquez represented the March 4th National Protest to Defend Education and made the links between the attack on students here with the denial of real aid to Haiti. Cervas talked of the similarities in the sabotaging of aid by the U.S. in both the Philippines and Haiti. An audio and visual presentation was presented by a former relief worker in the Philippines explaining the natural and imperialist-made disasters created by the recent typhoon there. A portion of the aid raised at the fundraiser also went to the victims of the typhoon in the Philippines.

A beautiful Filipino art piece was auctioned off in addition to the book Black Jacobins, one of the best historical books on Haiti written by C.L.R. James. This particular book was even better since it was signed at the event by the step son of James, Sam Weinstein, whose organization, Payday, co-initiated the fundraiser.

Dear MoveOn member,Since Friday, nearly 200,000 MoveOn members have signed a petition demanding a public explanation from Blue Cross of their plan to jack up rates by as much as 39% for some customers.

The pressure is working. Blue Cross has just announced they’ll delay the increase by two months—a big signal that the outcry is making them uncomfortable.1

But a short delay isn’t enough—and the company is still providing no explanation for this ridiculous rate hike. They’re hoping this small concession will appease the public, so we’ve got to show them that they’re wrong.

Will you sign the petition today? Clicking here will add your name and show Big Insurance that these abuses have to stop:

http://pol.moveon.org/bluecross/o.pl?id=18941-2186682-Zi58V1x&t=3

Below is the email we sent last week with the full story. Check it out, and forward this to your friends—the bigger the public response, the stronger the message to Big Insurance that customers won’t stand for abusive practices like this.

Thanks for all you do.

–Kat, Michael, Carrie, Stephen, and the rest of the team


Dear MoveOn member,Blue Cross has just announced that it’s immediately raising premiums charged to hundreds of thousands of individual customers by as much as 39%—even though their parent company’s profits soared to a record $4.7 billion last year.2

Even worse, the insurer has so far refused to explain why they’re increasing their rates, and warned that they might do so again this year without warning.

The Obama administration is demanding answers from Anthem Blue Cross, and Congress has opened an investigation.3 But Blue Cross is only going to respond if this story becomes a major public-relations problem for them.

So it’s time to turn up the heat. Let’s join the growing call for an explanation and send a powerful public message that these abuses by Big Insurance are unacceptable.

Clicking here will add your name to the petition:

http://pol.moveon.org/bluecross/o.pl?id=18941-2186682-Zi58V1x&t=4

The petition says: “Anthem Blue Cross must provide a detailed explanation for their exorbitant rate increases, or else roll them back immediately.”

These latest rate increases in California—reportedly the largest ever by Blue Cross for individual policyholders in the state—are yet another powerful example of how badly broken our health care system is and how desperately we need to hold Big Insurance accountable for exploiting their customers.

Anthem Blue Cross’s parent company made record profits last year despite losing 1.4 million customers—increasing their profit margins by cherrypicking the healthiest people to insure.4

Then they can turn around and dramatically increase the rates they charge to the customers they’ve kept, because there are almost no rules governing rate increases. In fact, the company doesn’t even have to publicly reveal how many customers’ rates they’ve increased, or by how much.

The good news is that Kathleen Sebelius, President Obama’s Secretary of Health and Human Services, is already publicly demanding answers from the company. And the House Energy and Commerce Committee has announced plans to hold hearings to investigate.

But to get Anthem to clean up their act—and show politicians and the media that we can’t afford any more abuses by Big Insurance—we all need to lend our voices. Clicking here will add your name to the petition:

http://pol.moveon.org/bluecross/o.pl?id=18941-2186682-Zi58V1x&t=5

Thanks for all you do.

Tomgram: Frida Berrigan, Pimping Weapons to the World As last week ended, the American and British military in Afghanistan finally launched a long awaited operation to occupy the city of Marja in Taliban-controlled Helmand Province.  According to Afghan war commander General Stanley McChrystal, to win “hearts and minds,” the U.S. Army and Marines were arriving with “a government in a box”  — Afghan governing and security structures evidently ready to be unpacked as part of the sort of nation-building operation that once would have staggered the American officer corps.

Not surprisingly, when it comes to the Afghan War, “hearts and minds” pieces are now a dime a dozen in the U.S. press.  (Can McChrystal’s new counterinsurgency strategy of “protecting the people” work?  Will the Afghans start to love us, love themselves, and reject the Taliban?)  In one recent piece about Marines in a Taliban “stronghold” near the southern city of Kandahar, “Forces Strain to Hire Afghans,” Wall Street Journal reporter Yaroslav Trofimov described the crisis a U.S. Army captain faced.  He had more than a million dollars to spend on reconstruction projects meant to gain local loyalties, and few Afghan takers.  The third paragraph of his piece went like this: “Yet, the only construction work here so far has been the hammering of U.S. Navy Seabees, or construction troops, erecting a vast American base overlooking Senjaray. The town’s unemployed men prefer to stay home, for fear of Taliban retribution.

This is fairly typical of U.S. press coverage of the Afghan War.  That “vast American base,” just now under construction, is noticed and mentioned in passing by an American reporter, and then never comes up again.  Yet it is one of approximately 400 bases built or being built in the country, as Nick Turse of TomDispatch.com recently discovered — a staggering Pentagon military construction splurge that is almost never reported on.  It’s simply taken for granted.

As TomDispatch regular and weapons-export expert Frida Berrigan of the New American Foundation points out, the American position in what U.S. news reports always call “the global arms trade” is similarly taken for granted.  If the Hollywood export Avatar sweeps the world, bringing in multi-billions, it’s front-page news.  If American arms exports sweep the world, bringing in multi-billions, you’re lucky to find out about it deep inside your ever-thinning daily newspaper (and such stories seldom even make it onto the TV news).  If we sell weaponry repeatedly to the Indonesians or the Saudis or the Qataris or the Israelis, it’s a ho-hum matter.  The norm.  Like those bases in Afghanistan.  It’s only if some country with clout screams bloody murder, as the Chinese recently did about a massive arms deal with Taiwan, that we have news; or if some other country sells weapons to whatever state is eager, as France recently agreed to do with the Russians, and the Americans responsible for distributing most of the advanced weaponry on the planet disapprove, is attention paid.  Go figure.  Tom 

America’s Global Weapons Monopoly
Don’t Call It “
the Global Arms Trade”
By Frida BerriganOn the relatively rare occasions when the media turns its attention to U.S. weapons sales abroad and shines its not-so-bright spotlight on the latest set of facts and figures, it invariably speaks of “the global arms trade.”

Let’s consider that label for a moment, word by word:

*It is global, since there are few places on the planet that lie beyond the reach of the weapons industry.

*Arms sounds so old-fashioned and anodyne when what we’re talking about is advanced technology designed to kill and maim.

*And trade suggests a give and take among many parties when, if we’re looking at the figures for that “trade” in a clear-eyed way, there is really just one seller and so many buyers.

How about updating it this way:  “the global weapons monopoly.”

Strap-on tank converts a car into a true all-terrain vehicle
If you thought replacing the wheels of a Subaru WRX STi with a Mattracks rubber track system was impressive, take a look at the strap-on tank that turns your old rust-bucket into a half tank, half car, true all-terrain vehicle. Read More

First Littoral Combat Ship deployed
The first Littoral Combat Ship departed from Florida today for its maiden deployment, approximately two years ahead of schedule. The agile 378-foot USS Freedom (LCS 1), designed and built by a team of companies led by Lockheed Martin, is the first of 55 the U.S. Navy plans for a new class of ships designed to operate in coastal waters.

Spokeless bicycle adds some ‘cool’ to pedal power
Usually, when you put nine university seniors together from a mechanical engineering class in a room for a whole semester with no strict agenda, the last thing you expect to get is a useful product. But this team broke the mold and created a “human-powered spokeless bicycle”. Admittedly, only the back wheel is spokeless, but the Yale students had two very good reasons for that – time and money.

Noteput strikes the right chord for teaching children classical music notation
When it comes to teaching children music, getting the little dears to bash away on a piano or strum away on a guitar usually isn’t too hard. Teaching classical music notation, however, is a different prospect entirely. The Noteput table concept from designers Jonas Heuer and Jürgen Graef attempts to make learning music theory fun, and also more effective, by combining the senses of hearing, sight and touch.

Weopia Virtual World: the future of Online Dating?
More and more people these days are turning to online dating to find the love of their life. Practically everyone knows a couple who met via online dating, but conversely everyone has heard a dating disaster tale, and for every happy couple there are lots of hilarious, embarrassing or expensive tales of dating hell. Weopia could be the answer to all that; a virtual dating experience that allows you to take a romantic boat ride, watch the sunset and talk in real time to a prospective date while you sit at home in your pyjamas… Read More

World’s biggest wind turbine to take a spin in Norway
The world’s biggest wind turbine will be constructed in Norway. The prototype turbine will stand 162 meters (533 feet) tall and feature a rotor diameter of 145 meters (475 feet). It is expected to be capable of generating 10-megawatts – enough to power 2,000 homes. The turbine will be tested on land in Øygarden in Hordaland County, Norway, for two years but is intended for offshore placement, where the winds are stronger and more consistent, and the concerns of ruined views and vibrations are removed.

CardioBip pocket-sized ECG monitor
The problem with a heart attack – apart from the obvious of course – is that you have very little time to get to an emergency room or doctor. A medical diagnosis in the first few hours – usually by undergoing an ECG – is critical to determine the severity of the arrhythmia or ischemia (heart attack) episode. Rather than dealing with crowded emergency rooms and overstretched MD’s, this simple to use pocked-sized device can give you an ECG reading on-the-spot. Read More

BMW M3 gets Auto Start-Stop
BMW has introduced a Competition Package for its class-leading BMW M3 Coupé to enhance the model’s exceptional driving dynamics. At the same time Auto Start-Stop technology becomes a standard feature on all versions of the M3, making it the world’s first high performance car with Auto Start-Stop. Read More

Sir Malcolm Campbell’s first world water speed record trophy
Soon to go to auctioneers hammer is this silver trophy presented to daredevil and racing legend Sir Malcolm Campbell to commemorate his first world water speed record (126.33mph) on Lake Maggiore on September 1, 1937. Campbell is somewhat of a rarity in that he successfully competed in some of the earliest motorcycle and car racing events, won Grands Prix, broke the Land Speed Record nine times, the World Water Speed record four times, and was the first human to drive over 300 mph, and fought in WW1 in the RAF, yet he died of natural causes. Few such daredevils escaped death in their pursuits – his son Donald among their number. Read More

The motorcycle air conditioner (no, really)
Yes, a motorcycle air conditioner. As you can see in the picture, though, it’s not as dumb as it sounds. In fact, it’s pretty clever. Haven’t you ever watched bikers riding around in the summer heat wearing full leathers, and wondered how they can stand it? They can’t. They’re boiling to death in there. Some opt to wear shorts and T-shirts instead, but from a safety standpoint… it’s not a sensible alternative, let’s put it that way. What is sensible is a process that pumps cooled air into a vest that the rider wears under their jacket. And that’s just what the EntroSys Motorcycle Air Conditioning system is. Read More

Sony Ericsson quick to update Vivaz handset with Vivaz pro
Only a month after releasing its flagship Vivaz handset, Sony Ericsson has upgraded the model with the pro version, which adds a QWERTY keyboard to the touch screen offering for faster for messaging and communicating via email, SMS or social networking updates. The announcement was made at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. Read More

Posilight – look for it in your grocer’s freezer
If you’re trying to reduce your carbon footprint, replacing traditional fluorescent tube lighting with more energy-efficient alternatives is a good way to start. And when most of us think fluorescents, we think ceiling lights. The fact is, though, a great deal of the world’s fluorescent lights are installed somewhere else – in grocery store coolers and freezers. The creators of a new product called Posilight are hoping to replace those tubes with their own LED-based product that will save power, save money, and save food. Read More

Samsung shows first LTE (4G) Netbook

Marc Hall petitions fed court to stop Iraq transferJailed hip-hop soldier asks to stop army from staging Iraq court martial for “stop-loss” song

Donate | Petition | Leaflet | stoplossmusic.org

So far 53 supporters have donated $1,651 of the $2,500 sent to file this petition for Marc. Please help.

FORT STEWART, GEORGIA – Attorneys for jailed hip-hop soldier SPC Marc Hall filed a petition with the US District Court of the Southern District of Georgia yesterday in an attempt to stop the Army from transferring SPC Hall to Iraq for court martial. SPC Hall currently remains incarcerated in the Liberty County Jail, Hinesville, Georgia as of this morning.

Court filings included: The brief | Habeas petition | TRO | Exhibits

David Gespass, civilian attorney for SPC Hall explained, “Not just the Constitution, but the rules for courts-martial, prohibit prosecutors from holding a court-martial in a combat zone as a pretext for depriving an accused of a public trial, counsel of his choice and necessary witnesses. Whatever the Army may claim, that is exactly what the Army is doing to Marc.” Mr. Gespass is the president of the National Lawyers Guild. He is based in Birmingham, Alabama.

Single mom Alexis Hutchinson wins discharge!By Friends and Family of Alexis Hutchinson.
February 11, 2010

Spc. Alexis Hutchinson, the single-mother in the Army who missed deployment last year when her childcare plans fell through at the last minute was today granted an administrative discharge from the Army. Hutchinson and her civilian attorney, Rai Sue Sussman, are happy with the results. Spc. Hutchinson says that she is “excited to know what will happen to me, and that I am not facing jail. This means I can still be with my son, which is the most important thing.” (Photo:  James Dao, NY Times. 2/12/10)

Hutchinson will receive an “Other Than Honorable” discharge, but will not be facing criminal charges at a court martial, which would have subjected her to a bad conduct discharge and up to a year in jail if she lost, as well as a criminal record. Ms. Sussman stated: “we would have fought the court martial, and I think that we had valid defenses if it went to trial. However, this resolution will give Alexis closure and the ability to move on immediately, without a lengthy trial and possible jail term.” They believe that at trial, the evidence would show that Spc. Hutchinson had intended to deploy until her childcare plans fell through.

The Army has regulations which anticipate the situation of single parents having plans for childcare during deployment fall through. The regulations call for an extension of time to find alternate care-givers, and to discharge a parent honorably if no solution is found. Sussman states: “Here, the Army did not act according to their own regulations, and did not value the family responsibilities of this soldier. If they had, Spc. Hutchinson would not have been in this situation and would be getting a better discharge.”

Travis Bishop wins reduction in sentenceFebruary 10, 2010

FORT HOOD, Texas – Sergeant Travis Bishop received word this week that he was given a 3 month suspension of the 12 month sentence he got last year for refusing to deploy to Afghanistan based on his Christian religious beliefs against war. Sgt. Bishop has been imprisoned at the Fort Lewis, Washington stockade since August 16, 2009. Lt. General Robert Cone, commanding general of Fort Hood approved the sentence reduction on February 4th after considering Sgt. Bishop’s clemency application.

Sgt. Bishop’s clemency application included a legal brief (alleging problems at trial, problems with the processing of Bishop’s conscientious objector claim, and mistreatment at the Fort Lewis brig), a hand-written letter from Sgt. Bishop, and 433 letters (signed by a total of 538 people from 21 different countries) from members of Amnesty International calling for Sgt. Bishop to be released.

Sgt. Bishop’s civilian attorney, James M. Branum, estimates that Sgt. Bishop will be released no later than March 31 based on the amount of good behavior credit Sgt. Bishop has earned.

In an emotional response, Sgt. Bishop asked his legal team to relay this message to the public, “Thank you! Thank you! Thank you to everyone who wrote letters and supported me! This is amazing and unprecedented.”

A man visited a donut shop one morning because he had tried some of the raisin cookies from his office and wanted some for himself……….While waiting in line, he noticed the swinging door was open……..and noticed the baker without a shirt on, cut slices of cookie dough and grabbed two pieces, slapped it on his chest and placed in on the cookie sheet…………this went on until the cookie sheet was filled…………..

the baker then opened a jar of raisins and placed a raisin into each of the impressions………..

The customer was so excited that he complained to the cashier about how unsanitary that was, even though he enjoyed the raisin cookies ……….

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J4YUgJTTSAI
 
The cahier heard the complaint and said………..”if you think that’s unsanitary………..how do you think he makes his doughnuts?”lol.

  The following article was posted in the IOLANI – The Royal Hawk.

  This message is being sent again because the EXHIBIT section was not covered.

  The legal documents should contain the following in the following order:

  1)  Cover page (covers ancestors name, RP/Royal Patent Number, LCA/ Land Commission Award number

  2)  Affidavit/Certification (family genealogies)

  3)  Heirs and Assigns page

  4) EXHIBITS (Write EXHIBITS in top right hand corner):
     a.   RP/Royal Patent LCA/Land Commission Award brief history (shows names of deceased owners and successors)
     b.  Survey Notes (obtain from the Archives, Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii) which shows the map, dimensions of the land(s).  (ask the Archivist how to obtain your survey notes….. also ask how to look at the books available documenting awards from the Great Mahele/ Kamehameha III period, an extra step to take is to find out the testimonies in regards to the parcel(s)/lands belonging to your families.

  5)  JURAT, NOTARY page

  6)  Xerox two (2) or more sets.  The notary usually wants to do only two (2) for a set.  If more copies are needed for family members, you could make copies after the notary signs the documents, and even after the filing is completed.

  7)  obtain a notary signature from your Credit Union, bank — First Hawaiian Bank has a preferred customer account that you may be able to qualify for……worth it because the cost of a Notary will be nothing/free……….at the Credit Unions and some banks also give free notary signature……cousin paid about $50 a couple of weeks ago —$5 per notary signature.

what’s funny? the idea of removing the portraits of the bad guys from ‘positions of honor’ within state government buildings, of course. and the fact that civic club members passed a reso in support of it. wouldn’t have happened five years ago. nowadays the civic clubs are stepping out all over the place. i like to think we (our club) had a lot to do with these small transformation. those clubs that have kept silent for a long time, for whatever reason, seem to be bustin’ out. i noticed this at the last meeting when the body approved keoni agard’s dissenting report on the akaka bill and our reso re support for cultural practice. some of the ‘old guard’ (some might call them big hitters) tried to stop these issues from moving forward. it’s great to have a show of hands–people get to see who takes what position. the invisible become visible. it’s all good.

Hi Kaohi,
my weekend was ok…….Apostile – Mahealani Asing used that………….via the entity state of Hawaii…….was wondering myself about what she’s doing……….some of her arguments sounds valid, yet……….?

Her cousin is Mahealani Ventura Oliver who is currently in hot water for using the bonds program…….

the two, however, did uncover the facts that the state uses monies from the bonds program to pay for the Judges salaries, houses/homes for people as far away as Norway…………..sinister set up utilizing funds of our Hawaiian Kingdom……….and another interesting fact is that the people who are in prison can get a way out – providing they are kanaka maoli/aboriginal Hawaiian that is —if they give up some of their interest!……………….wicked all the way around………..too much for one person to handle…..

Who is in charge while the Kingdom has been operating underground? many are……..guess the answer is all 40+ groups who have groups of kanaka maoli/aboriginal Hawaiians under them……..

realistically, we have to re-form the Hawaiian Kingdom…………get the underground setup and pull it together……………sounds easy but……….

aloha.

p.s. Have a great day……….talk with you soon. 

 
Good Morning Amelia,I am up thinking about my dad as usual and my little Hanai grandson. I’m sitting here waiting for a phone call for work too. This weekend has been a ‘much’ kine, how was yours? I’m trying to understand the word Apostile and how does that work. Who is in charge here in Hawaii while the Kingdom have been operating underground? Just some morning questions, don’t pay too much attention, I’m just waking up for a new day… and a new battle. got a job talk latter. I’ve been reading your last posting about the skin and under the skin. Pretty good argument for the Biology department, I wonder how they are going to get out from under the skin–because they assume the fact that we are no longer in existence and singing farewell to thee. Kaohi

The Devil and Mr. Obama
Barack promised change — and sure enough, things changed for the worse(Note: Patrick Ward, associate editor of the UK’s Socialist Review asked Joe to write a piece for the party publication. This is the unabridged text of Joe’s submission.)

By Joe Bageant

Well lookee here! An invite from my limey comrades to recap Barack Obama’s first year in office. Well comrades, I can do this thing two ways. I can simply state that the great mocha hope turned out to be a Trojan horse for Wall Street and the Pentagon. Or I can lay in an all-night stock of tequila, limes and reefer and puke up the entire miserable tale like some 5,000 word tequila purged Congolese stomach worm. I have chosen to do the latter.

As you may know, Obama’s public approval ratings are taking a beating. Millions of his former cult members have awakened with a splitting hangover to find their pockets turned inside out and eviction notices on the doors of their 4,000 square foot subprime mortgaged cardboard fuck boxes. Many who voted for Obama out of disgust for the Bush regime are now listening to the Republicans again on their car radios as they drive around looking for a suitable place to hide their vehicles from the repo man. Don’t construe this as support for the GOP. It’s just the standard ping ponging of disappointment and disgust that comes after the honeymoon is over with any administration. Most Americans’ party affiliations are the same as they were when Bush was elected. After all, Obama did not get elected on a landslide by any means; he got 51% of the vote.

Right now his approval ratings are in the 40th percentile and would be headed for the basement of the league were it not for the residual effect of the Kool-Aid love fest a year ago. However, millions of American liberals remain faithful, and believe Obama will arise from the dead in the third year and ascend to glory. You will find them at Huffington Post.

This frustrating ping pong game in which the margin of first time, disenchanted and undecided voters are batted back and forth has become the whole of American elections. That makes both the Republican and Democratic parties very happy, since it keeps the game down to fighting the enemy they know, each other, as opposed to being forced to deal with the real issues, or worse yet, an independent or third party candidate who might have a solution or two.

Thus, the game is limited to two players between two corporate parties. One is the Republican Party, which believes we should hand over our lives and resources directly to the local Chamber of Commerce, so the chamber can deliver them to the big corporations. The other, the Democratic Party, believes we should hand our lives and resources to a Democratic administration — so it alone can deliver our asses to the big dogs who own the country. In the big picture it’s always about who gets to deliver the money to the Wall Street hyena pack.

Americans may be starting to get the big picture about politics, money and corporate power. But I doubt it. Given that most still believe the war on terrorism is real, and that terrorists always just happen to be found near gas and oil deposits, there is plenty of room left to blow more smoke up their asses. Especially considering how we are conditioned to go into blind fits of patriotism at the sight of the flag, an eagle, or the mention of “our heroes,” even if the heroes happen to be killing and maiming Muslim babies at the moment. Patriotism is a cataract that blinds us to all national discrepancies.

Much of the rest of the world seems plagued with similar cataracts that keep it from noticing the chasm of discrepancy between what Obama says and what he actually does. The Nobel Committee awarded the 2009 Peace Prize to the very person who dropped the most bombs and killed the most poor people on the planet during that year. The same guy who started a new war in Pakistan, beefed up the ongoing war in Afghanistan, and continues to threaten Iran with attack unless Iran cops to phony US-Israeli charges of secret nuclear weapons facilities. It’s weapons of mass destruction all over again. Somewhere in the whole fracas has been forgotten that Iran has been calling for a nuclear free zone in the Middle East since 1974. Iran has also been consistent in its position that “petroleum is a noble material, much too valuable to burn for electricity,” and that nuclear energy makes much more sense, given that our food supply, whether we like it or not, is fundamentally dependent upon petrochemicals and will remain so until the earth’s population is reduced to at least half of what it is now. The Iranian attitude has been to use the shrinking petroleum deposits as judiciously as possible.

To which oilman George Bush replied that “There will be consequences for Iran’s attitude.” Obama has reinforced Bush’s sentiment, stating that not only will there be consequences, but that a military strike on Iran “is not out of the question.” Although nuclear weapons are in direct opposition to the Muslim faith, 71 million Iranians must have shuddered and paused to think: “Maybe an Iranian bomb isn’t such a bad idea after all.”

Under cover of being the first “black” president, Obama is looking to best one of the Bush administration’s records. And that is causing unshirted hell for anybody two shades darker than a paper bag, particularly if they are wearing sandals (Obama himself being only one shade darker than the bag and given to size eleven black Cole Haans). So far, two million Pakistanis have been, in official US State Department jargon, “displaced” by U.S. backed bombing and gunfire — which will surely displace a fellow if anything will. A significant portion of them are “living with host families.” Translation: packed into crowded houses ten to a room, wiping out food and water supplies, crashing already fragile sanitation infrastructure, and serving as a giant human Petrie dish for intestinal and respiratory diseases. Many more are still living in the “conflict area.” Makes it sound like living next door to a neighborhood domestic squabble, doesn’t it? God only knows how many more innocent people will yet be killed in the conflict area of Obama’s “war of necessity.” You know, the “good war.” The war that is supposed to offset the interminable bad one in Iraq, where we continue to occupy and build more bases.

Afghanistan: Grab the opium and run

Then there are Obama’s noble efforts to fight terrorism by beefing up troop “deployment” in Afghanistan. Deployment may be construed to mean an American style armed gangbang, in which everybody piles on some wretched flea bitten hamlets for all they are worth, with periodic breaks for pizza and video games.

Now if you look at the deployment of US forces in Afghanistan, compared to NATO country forces there, you’ll find them in a nice even line along what could easily be mistaken for an oil pipeline route. One that taps into the natural gas deposits in Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan and, by the purest coincidence, just happens to bypass nearby Russia and Iran. But we all know that “It’s about fighting terrorism over there so we won’t have to fight it here!” That still plays in Peoria, so we’re sticking with it.

At the moment, out-of-pocket cost of America’s wars in Iraq and Afghanistan is $900 billion. Interest on the debt incurred, plus the waste of productive resources on the war, pushes the cost to three thousand billion dollars (Nobel economist Joseph Stiglitz). By comparison, the entire 2009 government budget for elementary and secondary education is slightly above $800 billion. Or to look at it another way, how far would three thousand billion dollars go toward establishing energy independence? As Harvard monetary expert Linda Bilmes points out that there is “no benefit whatsoever for any American whose income does not derive from the military/security complex.” I sent an email to Obama pointing this out, suggesting that we pull out of Afghanistan, grab the opium and run. I got a nice reply saying that my president is grateful for the input. So there ya go.

Lately there has been a ruckus about our little “slap shop” in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Despite Obama’s promises to close down, “Cigarland,” it is still open for business. Word has it that Cigarland may be moved to an “underused” maximum security prison (one would think a scarcity of criminals for a maximum security prison would be good news, but what do I know?) in the desperately broke community of Thompson, Illinois. Locals there tell the national press, “Sure, put it in our backyard. No problem.” Or, “This town is in the prison business. Prisons R Us.” Or more bluntly, “We know how to handle these creeps and we need the jobs.”

It’s the kind of job creation Stalin would have understood.

Happiness is a warm tent

But at least the recession is over. This, according to Obama’s monetary point man, Ben Bernanke, chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank. For British readers unfamiliar with the US system, the Federal Reserve is not a government agency, despite its agency like name. “The Fed” is an offshore private banking cartel that decides just how much bogus currency can be printed and circulated profitably for bankers without wrecking their Ponzi schemes. And the chairman of that august body has announced that the recession is over. Well halleluja! We can quit rolling our own cigs and buy ready mades, and run recklessly through the Dollar Store scooping up dented canned goods and cheap Chinese tube socks.

That makes us luckier than the three and a half million Americans, most of whom led normal lives a few of years ago, who are now homeless. That includes one million school children sleeping in tents, shelters and other makeshift arrangements, and trying to look presentable each morning at schools that have not even the mercy to let them use the school showers. By the administration’s own calculation, the number of homeless and people out of work will continue to escalate at least into the next year. Home foreclosures, and therefore homelessness, “has not topped out yet,” says Obama.

But Bernanke has announced that the recession is over. So there you have it. A grateful nation breathes a sigh of relief. And besides, he is right about it being over. The recession is over for the most important members of a capitalist society, the oligarchs and banksters, who have made fortunes off this recession, thanks to our unique economic system, and may now return to their standard garden variety usury.

Economic systems are merely belief systems. I didn’t say that. Keynes said that. For instance, if the early Assyrians believed a shekel was worth a jar of wheat, then it was worth a jar of wheat. American style capitalism eventually stretched belief to the absolute limits of fantasy to the snapping point, as regards general credulity. Nobody abroad still believes the dollar is worth folding up and sticking in a wallet, certainly not worth exchanging for a good old fashioned shekel. However, be it shekels or dollars or euros, there is no economic system at all if there is no production. And there is no production if there are no jobs. Hence the obsession with unemployment rates.

The U.S. Ministry of Truth has announced that our unemployment rate is at 10%. I’ve yet to meet an American who does not know the official unemployment rate is a complete fiction. One half of the unemployed — the half that has been unemployed for more than one year — are simply erased from the official count. Poof! The real rate is somewhere around 20%. But if we acknowledged that, we’d have to admit to being on par with Europe’s unemployment rate. And by diddle damned we can never do that. Every American fully understands that the purpose of life is to hang onto one meaningless job or another, two of them if possible. And by the state’s official numbers more Americans have a white knuckled grip on life’s purpose than any of those pussy socialist European nations with their free healthcare, low infant mortality rates and ridiculously long vacations.

But the bad news, which the Obama administration openly acknowledges, is this: Unemployment will in all likelihood go higher. And nobody on earth knows how to reduce it (although no one in the administration is about to acknowledge that). The factories are all but gone and they are not coming back. Not unless American workers are willing to work 13 hours a day for two Chinese yuan an hour, which is about 31 cents. What US factories remain are laying workers off due to high interest rates, and waiting for a lower interest rate policy before deciding if it is feasible to call any workers back into production.

During their wait they can watch hell freeze over. Banks know a fatter hog when they see it. And that hog is the consumer credit business (nobody has figured out yet that consumers need paychecks before they can consume anything, on credit or otherwise ). To that end the Federal Reserve has logically set a low interest rate policy. And in true accordance with banking logic, the banks took the Fed’s money, then raised the annual percentage rate (APR) on credit card purchases and cash advances and on balances that have a penalty rate because of late payment. Next they raised the late fee. What the hell? If Americans are on the ropes, struggling to make their payments on time, then the logical thing to do is to stick it to them. Bleed ‘em for all they’re worth. It’s an American free market tradition. We the people do not complain. We expect no mercy. America is a business and the American concept of business is pure ruthlessness.

A Deutsche Bank analyst tells me a near term worst is yet to come. Bank failures and home foreclosures have not peaked. A commercial real estate bust is coming down the pike. He says that, while there will be some minor periodic upswings, the fraudulent value of the dollar is now evident as it falls against every other currency, even the Russian ruble (13%), except those unlucky enough to be pegged to the US dollar. As former Assistant Secretary of Treasury Paul Craig Roberts says: “What sort of recovery is it when the safest investment an American can make is to bet against the US dollar?” My Deutsche Bank friend, who is younger and has a family to think about, has taken what he considers more appropriate action. He’s buying gold and moving to an undeveloped Central American country.

But Mr. Bernanke assures us that the worst is indeed over. Despite the outside world’s serious doubts, but Bernanke’s announcement just might fly in the U.S. We believe whatever our Ministry of Truth tells us. We believed that debt was wealth, didn’t we? And we believed in WMDs, and have come to believe warfare is a prerequisite to peace.

The saddest thing is that Americans are cultivated like mushrooms from birth to death, kept in the dark and fed horseshit. Consequently, they haven’t the slightest idea that there is an alternative to the system in which they labor at the pleasure of corporate and financial elites who own both their government and their every waking hour. That alternative is democratic Socialism. Self governance for the broadest common good. Which the Ministry of Truth has defined for them as fascism.

Healthcare and environment? Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha

I would guess that you have heard about the “debate” over “healthcare reform in America.” There really wasn’t much debate, just a lot of thuggish behavior and wild tales of geriatric death panels by the right, and groveling capitulation on the left. The “reform” turned out to be a $70 billion a year giveaway to the insurance companies, by forcing those 45 million folks who cannot afford insurance at all to buy it anyway. Taxpayer dollars will make up the difference between what can be wrung out of the working poor, and what insurance corporations can demand and get because they have a throat lock on both of the other parties involved — the doctors and the patients. As for the doctors, they have played it so cool butter wouldn’t melt in theor mouths, and successfully avoided the question of whether their quarter million dollar and up incomes just might be contributing to the exorbitant cost of healthcare. Even with a majority in Congress, the best Obama and the Democratic Party’s corporate lapdogs could come up with was total handover to the insurance industry. If this smells a bit suspicious, it is the sweat of cold fear you are smelling. The insurance companies have always made it clear they have billions to spend in defeating and destroying any elected official not on their side.

As for environmental legislation, under the Obama administration environmentalism is pretty much reduced to “cap and trade.” In the truest spirit of capitalism, corporations will be able to sell their pollution for a profit, instead of ending it. And even this legislation barely made it through the House of Representatives. Moreover, environmental legislation has had the snot knocked out of it by the economic crash, and opinion polls now show the American public believes the price is too dear. It should be interesting to see what price their children will be willing to pay for oxygen and water.

Goldstone who?

Just when you think your country has reached the limits of raw shame and the outer banks of rogue internationalism occupied by Korea’s Kim Jong-Il and Sudan’s Omar al-Bashir, it surprises you with some new and worse outrage. America’s latest is right up there with holocaust denial in sheer unmitigated abrasive gall — putting the kibosh on the UN’s Goldstone Report. The report documents Israeli war crimes in the Gaza Ghetto, where 1.5 million Palestinians have been held miserable hostages by Israel. Admittedly, leadership both in Gaza and Israel is nothing short of a pack of criminals. But the Israeli attack on civilians and civilian infrastructure such as hospitals and schools, using illegal munitions such as skin melting white phosphorus, was a war crime by every definition. The UN and the world agree that it meets and exceeds the Nuremberg standard that the US established in order to execute Nazis. But as any American will tell you, the United States has never considered itself part of the rest of the world or in any way obliged to join. So the rest of the world was not surprised when the US House of Representatives voted 344 to 36 to condemn the Goldstone Report. The Obama administration has promised Zionist groups that it will never let the report get to the criminal court. The perps are safe. Zionists everywhere threw their hats in the air and cheered. The AIPAC boys at the back of the room nodded in approval: “Now tell us Congressmen, who’s yer daddy?”

I might add at this point that I am not one of those conspiracy freaks who see Zionist plots behind everything. The Zionists are but one of many backstage operators with a death grip on some aspect of U.S. policy. Frankly, of all the greaseballs and thugs muscling US domestic and international policy, I fear the Wall Street and the bankers far more than I fear any Zionist (except maybe that spooky shapeshifting motherfucker, Rahm Emanuel. Brrrr!).

In any case, most Americans have never heard of the attack on Gaza or the Goldstone Report. They were prevented from hearing the outside world’s news coverage of the grisly two week long specter. Residing in a free Central American country at the time, I was fortunate (or unfortunate) enough to hear the daily dispatches from inside Gaza, despite Israeli efforts to suppress them. About the only place the Zionist misinformation machinery really worked was in the United States, where it successfully repressed media coverage of Israeli atrocities and genocide. Not that it required great effort. American politicians and media long ago learned, as a client state of Zion, to look the other way. Or if that is not possible, to support one of the prepackaged lies conveniently provided the U.S. media by the Likudnik media management apparatus. “And besides, weren’t the Palestinians the fuckers who danced in the streets after 9/11? Screw ‘em! We now return to Cable News coverage of last night’s America’s Got Talent winners, the ZOOperstars!”

The man with the plan

The same day the assault on Gaza began, January 4, 2009, president elect Obama announced he would create or save three or four million jobs during his first two years in office. Ninety percent of them were to be in the private sector, of which about 400,000 would be in building roads, bridges, schools and broadband lines. Another 400,000 were predicted in solar panels, wind turbines, fuel-efficient cars; and one million in healthcare and education. The key term here was “jobs saved.” Any job not lost apparently goes in the jobs created column. I’m rather math impaired, but it seems to me that with real unemployment at about twenty percent and rising, and job losses predicted by the administration to continue for at least another year, it’s hard to see how the claim can be made. I suppose that as long as three million jobs remain in the US economy, Obama can claim to have saved them. I’d be the first to admit it’s all over my head, and a damned good example of why I am not suited for public office. Then too, I never did understand Bill Clinton’s surplus either. Political math is done in some fourth dimension anti-space where terrestrial rules do not apply.

One thing I do know is that for every dollar a worker would earn under Obama’s plan, a capitalist corporation employing the worker would earn almost two dollars. That Mexican guy balling sod along the new highway’s median strip for the contractor may be making eight bucks an hour he wouldn’t have otherwise earned. But he is making his employer about $15.50 on the same hour. As a younger man in Colorado I balled sod, hired the Mexicans and passed out the paychecks, so I know. First rule about capitalist math is: The capitalist owner gets to do the math.

So Obama’s plan lines more corporate pockets than those of the working man. This being America however, Obama was charged by conservatives with having an anti-capitalist socialist agenda. These businessmen conservatives are more than happy to take the money. But the rule of thumb in America is “Show No Gratitude! Bite the living hell out of any hand that feeds you, on the chance that it may give up more. Maybe even drop everything it is holding so you can grab it up and run while a crowd gathers to stone the alleged socialist.”

But the truth is that Obama’s jobs would have done nothing to help the economy “recover” anyway. There is no economy left to recover. It moved to China and India. Things such as road projects do not generate capital. Under capitalism roads are worthless unless they make money, and they can do no economic good if there is nothing being manufactured to haul on them.

Likewise education that does not contribute the gross national product (otherwise known as corporate interests) by producing higher wages to exponentially pump up American consumer fetishism is considered worthless. And let’s face it, higher education has become, for the most part, another racket. The student is saddled with massive loan debt (again, there is the odor of hyena banker spoor in the air) on the promise of eventual higher wages. Or at least that the graduate will work in a nice warm dry video store and never have to ball sod. Unfortunately, the number of jobs that require “college educated” Americans — quite an oxymoron, given the caliber of U.S. colleges these days — is shrinking right along with the Empire. All those jobs middle managing the Republic, such as helping us cheat on our taxes, brainwashing the school kids, and devising sales strategies for beer, grow scarcer by the day. Even book editing and reading medical scans are being outsourced to Asia. There’s a nasty rumor that American medical scans are being read in India by trained Buddhist temple monkeys to save rupees. The US healthcare industry has been mum on the subject.

Obama’s recovery plan depends on going deeper in hock to the Chinese. For Christ sake, aren’t there any of our tax dollars lying around anyplace other than in Wall Street vaults? Apparently not. So the Treasury Department keeps cranking out more funny money to make payments on the pawn ticket for the Empire. Rather like those doddering old Englishmen one meets on estates in rural Kent sporting “The Queen’s Own” military ties, we still prefer to think of ourselves as an Empire.

But the Chinese are looking askance, questioning the wisdom of pouring more money down a rat hole, based upon the US Treasury’s allegation that the other end of the rat hole comes out somewhere in China and not on Wall Street. Chinese talk shows publicly question American loans, when upcoming powerhouses such as Brazil are so ripe for investment. You can bet that if it’s on television in China, the public is being issued an official state sanctioned opinion they may feel free hold as their own.

The big heist

In the end the campaign rattle and prattle about Obama’s recovery plan turned out to be moot anyway. Wall Street moved in and heavied up on the whole damned country, in one of the ballsiest heists in American history. It was a stroke of pure genius as theft goes. Following a meeting of the Five Families, Citicorp, Bank of America, Morgan Chase, Wachovia, Taunus Corp., the financial cartels said, “The rip-off is in. We got it all. Now if you don’t hand over all the people’s savings and assets so we can loan it back to them, the whole flaming ball of shit you call the services and information economy is gonna come down on everybody’s asses like a giant meteor. So you can load three trillion bucks for now into the armored cars lined up out front and nobody will get hurt. Or you can watch the national economy shrivel up until the schmucks out there in the cul de sacs and cardboard condos can’t even put together cab fare for their ride to the poor house. It’s your call Barack.”

There are still a few delusional souls out there who believe Obama is trying to do his honest best to fulfill campaign promises, but just cannot get past the pack of vampire financial corporations and cold blooded Republican lizards. Which is true in a sense. He cannot get past the Wall Street pack because he is running in the middle of it. Obama’s nefarious relationship with Wall Street’s power players has been ongoing for years. It is no accident that Wall Street got to select the members of the president’s financial cabinet. My mutton eating friends, it’s a sad and sordid tale, one I have neither the space nor the stomach to cover here. Especially since better journalists such as Matt Taibbi and others have written extensively about it in detail.

Last I heard, the banks never un-assed the dough. Never let it circulate in the people’s hands or even through business loans. Instead, they declared a profit, divvied it up in bonuses, and congratulated themselves. Indeed, this was the sort of sheer brilliance we have come to expect from the Yale/Harvard MBA crowd. Getting rich by going broke. Then getting even richer by sticking up the US government and the entire American public, and eventually the entire world, leaving 1.5 quadrillion dollar cloud of toxic derivatives girding the world, to hoover up more money for them before imploding like a dark star. And indeed, the derivatives are even astronomical in nature. They represent $180,000 in debt load for every man woman and child on earth (although I cannot understand why, if the money isn’t real, why we should consider the debt real). It is impossible to produce our way out of this calamity. There aren’t even enough resources left on earth to sustain that scale of production.

For now the financial mobsters have retired to Tuscan villas to savor their haul. The poor schmucks out there in the US heartland are left to devise new ways of hiding the family ride from the repo man. Never once, though, do they doubt capitalism. They figure it is all just a big financial accident. Fate. And that will somehow “work our way out of it,” like we always have. These things happen in a dynamic free market economy.

A new mob moves in

To backtrack, that was when the smell of long green flying out of the public — the insurance industry. Insurance racketeers moved in with their own muscle to fill the void left by the Wall Street gang. The insurance syndicate dispatched its made men and soldiers throughout the halls of Congress, and, voila! They were able to pass the aforementioned $70 billion a year political blackmail job off as “reform legislation.” Say what you want to about my country, but pillage and looting have never been so elegantly ritualized, institutionalized and executed.

Realistic people on the left have long known that the last act of American strong-arm capitalism would be a massive gunpoint redistribution of wealth from the public to the owning class through the private financial sector — which the owning class happens to own. But few would have expected it to be executed under a Democratic majority in both the House and the Senate. Or under a Democratic administration honchoed by the first black president. One liberal blogger wondered aloud, “Imagine what the Republicans would have done had John McCain been elected?”

The same thing, brother. The same thing. Only with a different cover story. Both parties exist at the pleasure of the same crime syndicates.

How to join the rackets

As I remember, it was a Mexican diplomat who once told me that graft, theft and bribery are socialized in his and other Latin American countries — democratically distributed throughout much of society. But in America, he said, this sort of criminal activity is legislatively institutionalized. Only the elites are allowed to practice usury, theft, insurance blackmail and other forms of non-violent looting (violent looting being reserved for oil bearing Middle Eastern countries). The first step in building one of these rackets is to become a legally recognized interest group, in order to access the key Congressional players you wish to bribe or strong-arm into acquiescence or complicity.

The banking mob, the insurance mob, and other criminally organized legislative muscle men, cartels and commodity syndicates, are all officially sanctioned as “interest groups” operating alongside hundreds of others in that whorehouse by the Potomac River.

To list just a few, there are environmental interest groups such as the Sierra Club, which exists so its officers can draw fat salaries and meet movie star environmentalists. There is an interest group for education, which exists to assure the mediocrity of our public schools. Munitions manufacturers are an interest group. Gambling casinos and tobacco corporations are interest groups. There is an interest group to force feed us corn sugar, in order to sustain Midwestern Republican farmers and ensure the future of the ever expanding weight loss and diabetes industries. There are even lobby groups to protect the interests of syndicates in other countries, such as Israel. There is an interest group for everything except we ordinary American pudwhackers. The folks who just want to raise families in peace, and maybe have modest financial security in old age. And there are thousands of interest groups whose purpose is to make damned sure we never get either one.

We ain’t mean, just thrifty

Yesterday I watched a CNN host ask two experts: “Is stepping up the war in Afghanistan really the best use of our tax dollars?” The killing, maiming and displacement of untold thousands is discussed in terms of the best use of capital. A dehumanized and monetized capitalist society sees everything in dollars and cents and return on investment. Even infant mortality is rated that way, though seldom does anyone admit it. Saving a black ghetto baby has a low return on investment, according to some human services analysts, as regards their lifetime contribution to the gross national product. I actually heard an expert on a television panel show say this.

Yet Americans sitting in front of their TV sets do not find this one bit odd. Or even mean spirited, much less an indication of a cruel society. No American thinks of himself or herself as cruel, or connected in any way with the world’s largest human and environmental killing machine. No American doubts his inalienable right to drive around or run air conditioning or drink wine from grapes grown in Chile at the expense of a national war on the environment and those of the world’s people who have been born amid energy resources. If there are things such as cruelty and injustice, we the people aren’t the ones doing it. We the voters and taxpayers are not the CIA snatching people off to Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan to be raped with broken bottles and boiled alive to extract those “terrorist confessions” that keep the war on terror alive. We simply finance such operations.

And accountability? Well, on the very slight chance that someday the world will hold America accountable (which will never happen so long as we possess more armaments that the rest of the world combined and are quite clearly willing to use them toward our own ends) we the people can express our shock and disgust as citizens. We good people would never, never, never have approved of all those awful acts. And besides, there is not much the ordinary person can do about such things anyway. Right?

Maybe not. But it was Americans who so loudly proclaimed that complicity through silence is no defense, when we rubbed the German people’s noses in the grisly filth of the concentration camps and hung their national leadership.

The revenge of Smirking George

We haven’t heard much from George W. Bush since he packed up his comics and moved to Dallas. But his policies remain like dog piss stains to stink up the Obama White House. Rendition and assassinations continue, as does warrantless spying on the citizenry, along with other civil liberties violations in the name of the “war on terror.”

All of these are terrible things for a president who ran on reform and change to continue to do. But it is the thing Barack Obama and his party did not do, the thing they did not insist upon, that will have the greatest ongoing effect on this country. Obama and the Democrats refused to prosecute Bush and Cheney, ensuring that:

1 — No quail hunter is Georgia will ever be safe as long as Cheney’s pacemaker still functions;

2 — The precedents set by the most criminal administration in US history remain. Until they are confronted and rectified, America will not to have the opportunity to heal and recover. Honestly speaking though, the patient has been dead since the 2000 election fraud went unchallenged.

Obama’s election was the only chance America had to hold the Bush Republicans accountable for their crimes. Now it’s gone.

Opportunities to exercise moral principles as a nation and a people are rare to begin with, and fast vanishing. At some point they will be extinguished by the exigencies of human species survival. It doesn’t take a prophet to know this. Anyone paying attention to planetary population, resource depletion and the eco-collapse understands it in the gut. The mounting worldwide competition for human survival will not allow for much high mindedness. So we should exercise principle and administration of justice while principle and justice are still possible.

There are endless rationalizations proffered as to why Obama has not come within a mile of fulfilling the promise and potential of his presidency, and the Democratic Party is writing more of them every day. Disappointed Democratic voters grab at them, and desperately defend each one on internet forums and in letters to the editor. But we must use our own personal capabilities as free rational human beings to assess Obama, and decide why he is failing. Or not failing. To hell with highly crafted official explanations about “wars of necessity” and trillion dollar blackmail payments.

George W. Bush left office wearing the same smirk he came in with. Perhaps it’s congenital. But if Bush was smirking when he left office, he must now be convulsed in crazed hysterical laughter. His gang not only got away clean, but Obama carries on the dark Bush-Cheney legacy. And, almost as if to top the whole black escapade with a cherry of irony, the most inarticulate president in American history is now on the motivational speaking circuit at $200,000 a pop. Never let it be said that the Devil does not care for his own.

Will Americans ever rise up in defense of their own common well being through such things as education, health and a productive peace caring society? Nope. Because it has been seen to that socialism — the administration of the nation solely for the common good and benefit of all the people without preference or privilege — doesn’t stand a chance in America. For over a century those who have attempted to further socialism have been shot, hanged, burned alive in their beds on Christmas Eve, imprisoned, falsely accused of crimes and falsely convicted, and demonized by the capitalist elites of the corporate state. The cause of socialism has effectively been wiped out in the US. Few Americans can even define the word. Most think it is a political system when it is a social philosophy. Hell, half the socialists these days think it is entirely a political system.

But even if Americans understood socialism, they are too terrified to ever admit to its virtues, much less publicly support the cause. And without free and open public participation in some democratic form of socialism, regardless of the name or label given it, there can be no recognition of the people’s common welfare and good. And so the most egalitarian social philosophy ever conceived dies within a nation, with very little chance of being reborn because such an ideal, by its definition, cannot exist within the narrow mindset of bankers and oligarchs.

Bush smirks, Obama breakdances in and around the minefield of his false promises, and Wall Street CEO bonuses are higher than ever.

Like I said, the Devil does take care of his own.

My response:

Hi guys good luck on this one. It’s truly sad, because the homeless have had a series of attacks from DLNR since Jan 17 2010. Two days later, the DLNR reserected the DLNR signs at the Haleiwa Harbor where the homeless are parked. Most of their cars don’t meet the requirements for the streets. Lots of children at this harbor and I don’t know what is happening because I’ve been at the other homeless areas along the Waianae Coast with similar problems. We have no place for these homeless people. The evictions, citations are coming down heavy on these people since the incident at the palace. Act 50 (Marie Beltran vs State) is on the attack by the DLNR because of the vagueness within the law. But I believe they the DLNR were able to clear up the their problem because of the incident, “what defines a wall” is up for scrutiny (don’t know of a better word to use). Our people that are Na Kanaka lives in poverty in their own land. Somethings wrong here, I belive the court case should be coming up for the incident on March 1. We need a whole lot of prayers for our people as for concepts and ideas good thing to do, but children, old and handicap people ‘gotah eat’, and feel safe too. Kaohi

THE LAWS AND TREATIES OF The Kingdom of Hawaii, the ‘Entity’/ Provisional Government turned Republic of Hawaii, turned Territory of the United States turned State of Hawaii (with Oppositions) THE LAWS AND TREATIES OF The Kingdom of Hawaii With FINDINGS/ EVIDENCE of U.S. Conspiracies, etc. AFFECTING HAWAII AND THE WORLD TODAY (350 A.D. – 2010)</b> by Amelia Kuulei Gora, one of Kamehameha’s descendants, a Royal person not subject to the laws (2005)(revised 2010)

INTRODUCTION

The Kingdom of Hawaii became suppressed after the wrongful, criminal dethronement of Queen Liliuokalani. Fortunately, she left documentation that the U.S. Breached the Law of Nations, an ‘entity’ dethroned her, an ‘entity’ which was neither de facto nor de jure, she named the conspirators/Terrorists, and she stated that she did not sign a deed of Trust, but signed a Will.

The following has been prepared to provide the reader with a glimpse into: (1) the Kingdom of Hawaii’s laws and Treaties. (2) the Kingdom of Hawaii’s laws and Treaties, the ‘entity’ lawless group, turned Republic of Hawaii – self proclaimed group, turned into a Territory of Hawaii and State of Hawaii (with Oppositions documented). (3) The Kingdom of Hawaii’s laws and Treaties, with the conspirators/ Terrorists issues – with documented issues of Conspiracies, etc. –

Overview.

This has been set up like a skelton. The first part represents the skeleton, the naao/the primary organs, heart – lungs- kidneys – liver – brain, muscle, the endoderm and the mesoderm necessary. The second part provides the outside skin, the epiderm, the outside, superficial layer which is aided by bandaids (namely the U.S.) for assistance. The third part represents the natural growing skin belonging to the first part, providing a natural layer to the skelton making up a full body.

This part, aided with all the skills of the ages, comes into play. This part represents the truth and all that is good for the skeleton, it’s important parts and its’ function. As we all know, the bandaid approach is not the solution because under the bandaid, there is an enormous problem that will not go away. Bandaids are easy to pass around, but spreading oneself thinly around the world leads to unhealed tissues, and issues exposing TRUTH, which is what this exposes to everyone. The FACTS remain “Hawaii and the United States were separate and independent nations prior to July 7, 1898.”

Kamehameha descendants exist, Royal persons subject to the laws existed then and now. Conspiracies with Evidence are now documented. Aloha.

“The Supreme Court wrote “the governmental lands of Hawaii…passed to the United States by the Joint Resolution of Congress of July 7, 1898, which annexed Hawaii to the United States and accepted for the United States all public, Government or Crown lands and all other public property then belonging to the Republic of Hawaii.” Id., at 259.

2010 Update: See testimonies, research of Law Professor and Attorney Williamson Chang.

Admission of wrongdoing has been recorded and cannot be negated.

38. 1900 Organic Act:

The 1900 Organic Act provides at section two that: “That the islands acquired by the United States of America under an Act of Congress entitled “Joint Resolution to provide for annexing the Hawaiian Islands to the United States,” approved July seventh, eighteen hundred and ninety-eight shall be known as the Territory of Hawaii.” “As noted above, the United States Supreme Court found in Fullard-Leo (case) that the United States acquired all property of the Republic of Hawaii by the Joint Resolution.

It wrote “Hawaii has been a territory of the United States since the Joint Resolution of Annexation of July 7, 1898.” 331 U.S. at 265.

It cited Senate Doc. 16, 55th Congress, 3d Session, 1898, which listed Oahu as one of the Hawaiian islands acquired by the United States in 1898.

“The Supreme Court also cited Hawaii v. Mankichi, 190 U.S. 197 (1903). There, the United States Supreme Court upheld a manslaughter conviction by a less than unaminous jury verdict under the laws of the Republic of Hawaii. But in so doing, the Supreme Court clearly recognized that Hawaii was annexed to the United States in 1898.

“In Mankichi, the issue was whether United States laws and constitutional provisions automatically and instantly became applicable to Hawaii by virtue of the 1898 Joint Resolution, 190 U.S. at 212, or whether those laws and constitutional provisions did not become applicable until Congress affirmatively extended the laws of the United States to Hawaii by the 1900 Organic Act, Id., at 215.

The Supreme Court found the latter. Id. Republic of Hawaii laws continued to apply to the Territory of Hawaii during the transitional period between the 1898 annexation and the 1900 Organic Act.”

“However, the Supreme Court recognized that the “main objects of the (1898) resolution were, 1st, to accept the cession of the islands theretofore made by the Republic of Hawaii, and to annex the same ‘as a part of the territory of the United States and subject to the sovereign dominion thereof…’” 190 U.S. at 214.

“Judge King correctly held that all of Kahoolawe except for the lighthouse portion was sufficiently under Government control. Apparently recognizing that on their face these documents provide sufficient Government control, the defendants first argue that at least the 1898 and 1900 agreements were invalid because they were made by “illegal revolutionaries.”

In light of Congress’ recognition of the government of the Republic of Hawaii as the established government, the acceptance of the validity of the transfer agreements by both the United States and Hawaiian Supreme Courts (see United States v. fullard-Leo), 331 U.S. 256, 270, 67 S. Ct. 1287, 91 L.Ed. 1474; Bishop v. Mahiko, 35 Hawaii 608 (1940), and the failure of defendants to make a record on this argument below, we reject this challenge as frivolous.”

“In United States v. Mowat, 582 F. 2d 1194, 1206-07 (9th Cir. 1978). “Territorial Supreme Court cases also rejected challenge to the jurisdiction of legitimate successors to the Kingdom of Hawaii. In Territory v. Kapiolani Estate, 18 Haw. 643 (1908), the Hawaii Supreme Court first addressed the legitimacy of government-owned land after the 1893 overthrow.

2010 Update: Opposition to the Princes Kuhio and Kawananakoa was recorded by Queen Kapiolani who also maintained the lands of her sister Princess Poomaikelani.

The Princes were told to file the deed of conveyance AFTER her death, instead they filed it upon receiving it.

Queen Kapiolani recorded her Opposition and nulled and voided the deed.

The usurpers Courts supported the Princes filings.

It was after Queen Liliuokalani’s death that Prince Kuhio took an out-of-court settlement to the claims of Queen Liliuokalani maintaining that she did not sign a Trust deed with the criminal deviants: Smith, Iaukea, and Damon (who replace Cleghorn).

Prince Kuhio received property in Waikiki for his claim and signed documents which declared he gave up claims to the throne.

additional note: Queen Kapiolani was the hanai/adopted daughter of Kaluakini, my great grandfather. In other words, Queen Kapiolani was the sister of my grandmother.

Princess Poomaikelani was my great great grandmother. Years of research has resulted in finding the evidence.

Princess Poomaikelani was my grandmother’s own grandmother.

Princess Poomaikelani was said to be the daughter of Kaeha/ Kamakaeha/Namakaeha/Liliuokalani/Queen Liliuokalani. The Queen actually had many whom she called her children:

Abigail/Princess Poomaikelani

Kema (male)

Wahie (male)

Kamukai (male)

Kaeha opio (female)

Luka (female)

Pau (male)

Ioane (male)

and others

The Hawaii Supreme Court said: “The law(Sec. 272 R.L.) places with the commissioner of public lands the general supervision of all public land which was ceded to the United States by the Republic of Hawaii, which included (Sec. 99 Org. Act) the “portion of the public domain heretofore known as crown land.” Id., 18 Haw. At 644.”

“In Kapiolani Estate, the territorial land commissioner had brought an action in the name of the Territory to recover possession of government land that had been leased and upon which the rent was in arrears.

The Hawaii Supreme Court ruled: “As above stated, it was unnecessary to aver the title of the territory in that portion of the public lands which at the date of the lease were known as crown lands since judicial notice is taken that by Art. 95 of the constitution of the Republic of Hawaii the crown lands were declared to be the property of the Hawaiian government and that by the public land act of 1895 those lands as part of the public domain were placed under the management of the commissioner of public lands, a title which was recognized by the joint resolution of annexation, the lands having been ceded by the Republic of Hawaii to, and accepted by, the United States, and also recognized by the organic act (Sec. 83) in continuing in force the land laws of the Republic of Hawaii, and (Sec. 99) declaring that the crown lands on August 12, 1898, were, and prior thereto, had been, the property of the Hawaiian government. The validity of the declaration in the constitution of the Republic of Hawaii, under which the present title is derived, does not present a judicial question.

Even assuming, but in no way admitting, that the constitutional declaration was confiscatory in nature, this court has no authority to declare it to be invalid.

The subsequent derivation of the title by the United States, as above stated, is clear.”

“The position here taken in refusing to regard the defendant’s claim is otherwise than as fixed by constitutional law as presenting a judicial question is well illustrated in numerous decisions of the United States supreme court.” Id., 18 Haw. At 645-46, citing Foster v. Neilson, 2 Pet. 253, 256; Williams v Suffolk Ins. Co., 13 Pet. 414, 420; Luther v Borden, 7 Haw. 1, 41, 56; Jones v. U.S., 137 U.S. 80, 82; McCray v U.S., 195 U.S. 27, 54; Wilson v. Shaw, 204 U.S. 24.”

“Later, in Territory v Puahi, 18 Haw. 649 (1908), the Hawaii Supreme Court ruled that the question of whether Section 95 of the constitution of the Republic of Hawaii violated the United States Constitution was not a judicial question.

Section 95 had declared the former crown lands to be the land of the Hawaiian government. It is by now clear that: “Upon the adoption of the Newlands Resolution (30 Stat. L. 750, Resolution No. 55, adopted July 7, 1898) and the transfer to the United States of the Hawaiian Islands the entire dominion and sovereignty, national and territory vested in the United States….

Every nation acquiring territory by treaty or otherwise holds the acquired territory subject to the constitution and laws of its own government and not according to those of the government ceding it.” Bishop v. Mahiko, 35 Haw. 608, 649 (1940).

FACTS FOUND: Researchers Rachel (husband Merle) Painter and their attorney Williamson B.C. Chang, University of Hawaii Law School Professor and legal researcher, claimed that “the boundaries of the State do not include that island (Oahu). Said island was excluded by the Act of Admission, Section Two.”

“Section Two of Public Law 86-3 applies plainly to deny this court of jurisdiction over the res.

Section Two states: “Section Two: The State of Hawaii shall consist of all the islands, together with their appurtenant reefs and territorial waters, included in the Territory of hawaii on the date of enactment of this Act, except the atoll known a Palmyra Island, together with its appurtenant reefs and territorial waters, but said State shall not be deemed to include the Midway Islands, Johnston Island, Sand Island (off shore from Johnston Island, or Kingman Reef, together with their appurtenant reefs and territorial waters.”

“Public Law 86-3 is the Act of Admission, the Act of Congress by which Hawaii was admitted as a State.

Section Two of that Act defines the area of the State to be those islands which were acquired by the Joint Resolution (30 Stat 750) an Act of Congress.

Hawaii and the United States were separate and independent nations prior to July 7, 1898.

This Court may take judicial notice of that fact.

No act of Congress, no Act of the Congress of the United States, no act of any Congress in the world can, without more, result in the incorporation of the territory of another nation.

”(see Reference (1)) Reference (1): See Exchange of remarks, Senators Allen and Stewart, 55th Cong. 2d Session. 31 cong. Rec. 6369 (Senator Stewart taking the position that the resolution was mere “puffing,” in that the United States can “annex the world” if Congress so chose.)

No nation has that power and not nation ever will have that power. Equally true, no nation can suffer the loss of its lands by “joint resolution.”

It is not simply an illegal act – it is an impossible act.

See Statement of Senator Foraker admitting Joint Resolution cannot annex Hawaii. 55th Cong. 2d Sess. 31 Cong. Rec. 6585.

“So said the Supreme Court in Kalb v Feuerstein, 308 U.S. 433 (1940.(See Reference (2) The terms of Public Law 86-3 divests this Court of power.

Section Two is plain on its face.

The legislative history is more than clear: Congress deliberately sought to deny the Courts of the State of Hawaii in rem jurisdiction. (See reference 3)

Public Law 86-3 is the sole basis by which this Court derives its very existence, let alone its powers.

Reference (2): “In Kalb, appelants were ejected from their farm. Later, they brought an action in equity in the Circuit Court of Walworth County, Wisconsin, against the mortgagees, who had purchased at the sheriff’s sale, The appellants, farmers, sought restoration of possession, the cancellation of the sheriff’s deed and for removal of the mortgagees. Appellants had filed in the bankruptcy court for an extension of time to pay, under section 75 of the Bankruptcy Act, (Frazier-Lemke).

Nevertheless, the County Court granted the motion for confirmation of the sheriff’s sale and denied a stay. The mortgagees acquired the property by sale. The mortgagees ejected the appellants pursuant to a writ of execution.”

“The issue was whether the County Court had jurisdiction. The confirmation of sale and ejectment took place while the petition was pending in the bankruptcy court.

On appeal, the Wisconsin Supreme Court stated: “It is the contention of the plaintiff that this statute is self-executing,….”.

Appellants had not applied for a stay in the County Court. The Supreme Court posed the issue as whether or not the Frazier-Lemke Act was self-executing, providing for a statutory, not a judicial stay. The Wisconsin Supreme Court decided that the Frazier-Lemke did not impose an automatic stay and thereby terminate the jurisdiction of the state court. Thus, the ejectment was not in violation of the law.”

“The Supreme Court of the United States reversed. The Supreme Court deemed this an issue of power, of jurisdiction. The county court had jurisdiction over foreclosures in general. Nevertheless, then by its terms the Frazier-Lemke Act automatically divested the County Court of jurisdiction once a petition was filed. The County Court was stayed whether or not the appellants filed for such a stay in that court.

The effect of the federal law as automatic-not resting upon the affirmative act of the appellant. The appellant was not required to file to benefit from the stay.”

“The principle in Kalb applies to the instant case. This Court is divested of in rem power by act of Congress. As in Kalb, it was the intent of Congress to deny this Court any power incident to in rem jurisdiction, whether eminent domain, the power to confirm a sale, to issue a writ of execution, or to quiet title.

” Reference (3): “Leaders of both the Republic of Hawaii and the Untied States were well aware of this fact.

See Correspondence of Sanford Dole, President of Hawaii to A. Hartwell, dated November 15, 1899 from the State Archives of Hawaii (“A reference to the joint reolution of annexation and the treaty shows clearly the untenable position of the President’s order in that it attempts to affect land transfers made between July 7, and August 12, 1898; for the treaty by Article 1st agrees that the hawaiian Islands be annexed to the United State under the name of the Territory of Hawaii;”) the joint resolution changes this in a most radical way in the first paragraph by annexing the Hawaiian islands “as a part of the territory of the United States.”

The Treaty agreement having been departed from in this important particular by the joint resolution, it cannot be of course contended that the letter has an authority in relations to the Hawaiian Islands until it was accepted by us which acceptance took place on the 12th of August 1898.”

The protracted debate over the Joint Resolution had brought this fact to public attention.

No one claimed that Congress had power beyond the boundaries of the United States.”

Note: Williamson B.C. Chang, University of Hawaii Professor, attorney, legal researcher is pono/good.

He was ridiculed by Federal Judge Ezra in the past, and lost his assets helping other aboriginal Hawaiians in the past.

Other researchers and I had at one time organized to do legal research, other research, and applied for grants.

Unfortunately, the plans fell through and we went our separate ways.

Thanks to his intensive, extensive research, the outcome shows that Professor Chang put the Court on notice when he documented

“Hawaii and the United States were separate and independent nations prior to July 7, 1898.

This Court may take judicial notice of that fact. No act of Congress, no Act of the Congress of the United States, no act of any Congress in the world can, without more, result in the incorporation of the territory of another nation.”

Additionally, in Reference (1): “No nation has that power (to annex) and no nation ever will have that power. Equally true, no nation can suffer the loss of its lands by “joint resolution.”

“It is simply an illegal act – it is an impossible act.”

Lastly, in Reference (2): The issue of terminating “the jurisdiction of the state court” is possible.

Comment: Terminating “the jurisdiction of the state court, etc.” could be stated in an alternate fashion, “jurisdiction not granted”, a message which was sent out to the Courts, the Governor, Mayor(s), and U.S. President’s Clinton and Bush also via Senators Daniel Akaka, and Daniel Inouye time and time again (Certified/Registered Mailings, letters, personal visits to their offices, and e-mails).

39. 1959 Admissions Act. Statehood of Hawaii – 1959 and Executive Order by U.S. President Eisenhower.

The ‘Entity’/ Provisional Government turned Republic of Hawaii, turned Territory of the United States turned State of Hawaii (with Oppositions):

The State of Hawaii Attorney General claimed as follows:

“The 1959 Admission Act provides, at section two, that: The State of Hawaii shall consist of all the islands, together with their appurtenant reefs and territorial waters, included in the Territory of Hawaii on the date of enactment of this Act, except the atoll known as Palmyra Island, together with its appurtenant reefs and territorial waters, but said State shall not be deemed to include the Midway Islands, Johnston Island, Sand Island (off shore from Johnston Island), or Kingman Reef, together with their appurtenant reefs and territorial waters.”

“The validity of the Joint Resolution, Organic Act, and Admission Act have been judicially attacked before. None of these attacks have ever succeeded.”

The historical evidence is being worked on disputing the United States claimed facts with evidence.

2010 Update: Evidence has been found, much has been recorded in books, articles, and on the news on the web IOLANI – The Royal Hawk which has 276 issues to date, publisher, researcher, writer includes many and author Amelia Gora.

42. Affidavit/Lien No. 96-177455 filed on 12/17/96 (281 pages) filed at the Bureau of Conveyances, Honolulu, Hawaii with issues of ownership of Hawaii’s lands, 133 islands; conspiracies/piracies discovered – examples, Pacific Cable Co.; genealogies; Queen Liliuokalani’s claim that she did not sign a Trust deed, etc.

FACTS FOUND: Documented in Affidavit/Lien No. 96-177455 on 12/17/96 (281 pages) at the Bureau of Conveyances on 12/17/96 (filer: Amelia Kuulei Gora, address, Mililani, Hawaii 96789) Cost $25 to file, shortly after the State of Hawaii changed their fees to $25 per page up to a certain amount, then a lesser fee is charged. Cost to copy $.50 per page and $.50 to certify each page.

A copy of the Affidavit/Lien was left at the Aiea Copy Service, Aiea Shopping Center, Aiea, Oahu, Hawaii, under the Hawaiian Genealogy Society file folder.

The reason: so that many aboriginal Hawaiians, friends would not have to pay $300 + per copy as some have paid in the past. Cost is their printing cost only.

2010 Update: The file was removed from the Aiea Copy Service since 2007.

aloha.

2010 update/editor note: This was written in 2005……….since then, additional information has been found that our Queen and people were under duress. stress. coercion, usurpation, etc……….due to the arrival of the military a day PRIOR to the dethronement with a gatling gun, etc.

Refer to article that I’ve posted previously……….then, print all and keep with your important files.

Also print WHAT EVERY KANAKA MAOLI NEEDS TO KNOW, and other important information intended to inform others that although Hawaii is the Criminal Mecca of the United States, it is important to remember that we maintain a neutral, friendly, non-violent nation that has been recorded as having gone “under ground”.

We continue to maintain Queen Liliuokalani’s instructions, and continue to state that the Provisional government which evolved into the Republic, Territory and State are neither de facto nor de jure but an entity.

Queen Liliuokalani and her subjects were under duress which means all is null and void.

Queen Liliuokalani maintained that the U.S. breached the Law of Nations.

To put it plainly, and to repeat what other kanaka maoli/aboriginal Hawaiians have been saying and documenting, “Hawaii IS A FAKE State!”

It is necessary that we the aboriginal Hawaiians – as Queen Liliuokalani identified us to be………or kanaka maoli as our tutus identified themselves to be according to the CENSUS records prior to the wrongful, criminal dethronement of our Queen —see the question on the CENSUS records “Are you a kanaka maoli” —our tutus answered “YES”.

Evidence of our Alii are nearly in place….

Evidence of our Konohiki are nearly in place…..

Evidence for All our aboriginal Hawaiian people are hereby documented and recorded in the Kingdom of Hawaii Records No. 2010-0009.

 THE LAWS AND TREATIES OF The Kingdom of Hawaii (Since 350 A.D.) THE LAWS AND TREATIES OF The Kingdom of Hawaii, the ‘Entity’/ Provisional Government turned Republic of Hawaii, turned Territory of the United States turned State of Hawaii (with Oppositions) THE LAWS AND TREATIES OF The Kingdom of Hawaii With FINDINGS/ EVIDENCE of U.S. Conspiracies, etc. AFFECTING HAWAII AND THE WORLD TODAY (350 A.D. – 2010) by Amelia Kuulei Gora, one of Kamehameha’s descendants, a Royal person not subject to the laws (2005)(revised 2010)

 INTRODUCTION

 The Kingdom of Hawaii became suppressed after the wrongful, criminal dethronement of Queen Liliuokalani. Fortunately, she left documentation that the U.S. Breached the Law of Nations, an ‘entity’ dethroned her, an ‘entity’ which was neither de facto nor de jure, she named the conspirators/Terrorists, and she stated that she did not sign a deed of Trust, but signed a Will.

The following has been prepared to provide the reader with a glimpse into: (1) the Kingdom of Hawaii’s laws and Treaties. (2) the Kingdom of Hawaii’s laws and Treaties, the ‘entity’ lawless group, turned Republic of Hawaii – self proclaimed group, turned into a Territory of Hawaii and State of Hawaii (with Oppositions documented). (3) The Kingdom of Hawaii’s laws and Treaties, with the conspirators/ Terrorists issues – with documented issues of Conspiracies, etc. –

 Overview.

This has been set up like a skelton. The first part represents the skeleton, the naao/the primary organs, heart – lungs- kidneys – liver – brain, muscle, the endoderm and the mesoderm necessary. The second part provides the outside skin, the epiderm, the outside, superficial layer which is aided by bandaids (namely the U.S.) for assistance. The third part represents the natural growing skin belonging to the first part, providing a natural layer to the skelton making up a full body.

This part, aided with all the skills of the ages, comes into play. This part represents the truth and all that is good for the skeleton, it’s important parts and its’ function. As we all know, the bandaid approach is not the solution because under the bandaid, there is an enormous problem that will not go away. Bandaids are easy to pass around, but spreading oneself thinly around the world leads to unhealed tissues, and issues exposing TRUTH, which is what this exposes to everyone. The FACTS remain “Hawaii and the United States were separate and independent nations prior to July 7, 1898.”

Kamehameha descendants exist, Royal persons subject to the laws existed then and now. Conspiracies with Evidence are now documented. Aloha.

 “The Supreme Court wrote “the governmental lands of Hawaii…passed to the United States by the Joint Resolution of Congress of July 7, 1898, which annexed Hawaii to the United States and accepted for the United States all public, Government or Crown lands and all other public property then belonging to the Republic of Hawaii.” Id., at 259.

2010 Update:  See testimonies, research of Law Professor and Attorney Williamson Chang.

Admission of wrongdoing has been recorded and cannot be negated.

38. 1900 Organic Act:

The 1900 Organic Act provides at section two that: “That the islands acquired by the United States of America under an Act of Congress entitled “Joint Resolution to provide for annexing the Hawaiian Islands to the United States,” approved July seventh, eighteen hundred and ninety-eight shall be known as the Territory of Hawaii.” “As noted above, the United States Supreme Court found in Fullard-Leo (case) that the United States acquired all property of the Republic of Hawaii by the Joint Resolution.

It wrote “Hawaii has been a territory of the United States since the Joint Resolution of Annexation of July 7, 1898.” 331 U.S. at 265.

 It cited Senate Doc. 16, 55th Congress, 3d Session, 1898, which listed Oahu as one of the Hawaiian islands acquired by the United States in 1898.

“The Supreme Court also cited Hawaii v. Mankichi, 190 U.S. 197 (1903). There, the United States Supreme Court upheld a manslaughter conviction by a less than unaminous jury verdict under the laws of the Republic of Hawaii. But in so doing, the Supreme Court clearly recognized that Hawaii was annexed to the United States in 1898.

“In Mankichi, the issue was whether United States laws and constitutional provisions automatically and instantly became applicable to Hawaii by virtue of the 1898 Joint Resolution, 190 U.S. at 212, or whether those laws and constitutional provisions did not become applicable until Congress affirmatively extended the laws of the United States to Hawaii by the 1900 Organic Act, Id., at 215.

The Supreme Court found the latter. Id. Republic of Hawaii laws continued to apply to the Territory of Hawaii during the transitional period between the 1898 annexation and the 1900 Organic Act.”

“However, the Supreme Court recognized that the “main objects of the (1898) resolution were, 1st, to accept the cession of the islands theretofore made by the Republic of Hawaii, and to annex the same ‘as a part of the territory of the United States and subject to the sovereign dominion thereof…’” 190 U.S. at 214.

“Judge King correctly held that all of Kahoolawe except for the lighthouse portion was sufficiently under Government control. Apparently recognizing that on their face these documents provide sufficient Government control, the defendants first argue that at least the 1898 and 1900 agreements were invalid because they were made by “illegal revolutionaries.”

In light of Congress’ recognition of the government of the Republic of Hawaii as the established government, the acceptance of the validity of the transfer agreements by both the United States and Hawaiian Supreme Courts (see United States v. fullard-Leo), 331 U.S. 256, 270, 67 S. Ct. 1287, 91 L.Ed. 1474; Bishop v. Mahiko, 35 Hawaii 608 (1940), and the failure of defendants to make a record on this argument below, we reject this challenge as frivolous.”

“In United States v. Mowat, 582 F. 2d 1194, 1206-07 (9th Cir. 1978). “Territorial Supreme Court cases also rejected challenge to the jurisdiction of legitimate successors to the Kingdom of Hawaii. In Territory v. Kapiolani Estate, 18 Haw. 643 (1908), the Hawaii Supreme Court first addressed the legitimacy of government-owned land after the 1893 overthrow.

2010 Update:  Opposition to the Princes Kuhio and Kawananakoa was recorded by Queen Kapiolani who also maintained the lands of her sister Princess Poomaikelani.

The Princes were told to file the deed of conveyance AFTER her death, instead they filed it upon receiving it.

Queen Kapiolani recorded her Opposition and nulled and voided the deed.

The usurpers Courts supported the Princes filings.

It was after Queen Liliuokalani’s death that Prince Kuhio took an out-of-court settlement to the claims of Queen Liliuokalani maintaining that she did not sign a Trust deed with the criminal deviants:  Smith, Iaukea, and Damon (who replace Cleghorn).

Prince Kuhio received property in Waikiki for his claim and signed documents which declared he gave up claims to the throne.

additional note:  Queen Kapiolani was the hanai/adopted daughter of Kaluakini, my great grandfather.  In other words, Queen Kapiolani was the sister of my grandmother.

Princess Poomaikelani was my great great grandmother. Years of research has resulted in finding the evidence.

Princess Poomaikelani was my grandmother’s own grandmother.

Princess Poomaikelani was said to be the daughter of Kaeha/ Kamakaeha/Namakaeha/Liliuokalani/Queen Liliuokalani.  The Queen actually had many whom she called her children:

Abigail/Princess Poomaikelani

Kema (male)

Wahie (male)

Kamukai (male)

Kaeha opio (female)

Luka (female)

Pau (male)

Ioane (male)

and others

The Hawaii Supreme Court said: “The law(Sec. 272 R.L.) places with the commissioner of public lands the general supervision of all public land which was ceded to the United States by the Republic of Hawaii, which included (Sec. 99 Org. Act) the “portion of the public domain heretofore known as crown land.” Id., 18 Haw. At 644.”

 “In Kapiolani Estate, the territorial land commissioner had brought an action in the name of the Territory to recover possession of government land that had been leased and upon which the rent was in arrears.

 The Hawaii Supreme Court ruled: “As above stated, it was unnecessary to aver the title of the territory in that portion of the public lands which at the date of the lease were known as crown lands since judicial notice is taken that by Art. 95 of the constitution of the Republic of Hawaii the crown lands were declared to be the property of the Hawaiian government and that by the public land act of 1895 those lands as part of the public domain were placed under the management of the commissioner of public lands, a title which was recognized by the joint resolution of annexation, the lands having been ceded by the Republic of Hawaii to, and accepted by, the United States, and also recognized by the organic act (Sec. 83) in continuing in force the land laws of the Republic of Hawaii, and (Sec. 99) declaring that the crown lands on August 12, 1898, were, and prior thereto, had been, the property of the Hawaiian government. The validity of the declaration in the constitution of the Republic of Hawaii, under which the present title is derived, does not present a judicial question.

Even assuming, but in no way admitting, that the constitutional declaration was confiscatory in nature, this court has no authority to declare it to be invalid.

 The subsequent derivation of the title by the United States, as above stated, is clear.”

“The position here taken in refusing to regard the defendant’s claim is otherwise than as fixed by constitutional law as presenting a judicial question is well illustrated in numerous decisions of the United States supreme court.” Id., 18 Haw. At 645-46, citing Foster v. Neilson, 2 Pet. 253, 256; Williams v Suffolk Ins. Co., 13 Pet. 414, 420; Luther v Borden, 7 Haw. 1, 41, 56; Jones v. U.S., 137 U.S. 80, 82; McCray v U.S., 195 U.S. 27, 54; Wilson v. Shaw, 204 U.S. 24.”

 “Later, in Territory v Puahi, 18 Haw. 649 (1908), the Hawaii Supreme Court ruled that the question of whether Section 95 of the constitution of the Republic of Hawaii violated the United States Constitution was not a judicial question.

Section 95 had declared the former crown lands to be the land of the Hawaiian government. It is by now clear that: “Upon the adoption of the Newlands Resolution (30 Stat. L. 750, Resolution No. 55, adopted July 7, 1898) and the transfer to the United States of the Hawaiian Islands the entire dominion and sovereignty, national and territory vested in the United States….

Every nation acquiring territory by treaty or otherwise holds the acquired territory subject to the constitution and laws of its own government and not according to those of the government ceding it.” Bishop v. Mahiko, 35 Haw. 608, 649 (1940).

 Reference: First Circuit Court Case Civil No. 98-0559-02 (Condemnation) State of Hawaii, by its Attorney General vs. Richard Sung Hong Wong, Oswald Kofoad Stender, Marion Mae Lokelani Lindsey, Gerard Aulama Jervis, and Henry Haalilio Peters, Trustees of Kamehameha Schools Bishop Estate; Kaiser Aluminum & Chemical Corporation, a Delaware corporation; and Hawaii Kai Development Corporation, a Nevada corporation.

FACTS FOUND: Researchers Rachel (husband Merle) Painter and their attorney Williamson B.C. Chang, University of Hawaii Law School Professor and legal researcher, claimed that “the boundaries of the State do not include that island (Oahu). Said island was excluded by the Act of Admission, Section Two.”

“Section Two of Public Law 86-3 applies plainly to deny this court of jurisdiction over the res.

Section Two states: “Section Two: The State of Hawaii shall consist of all the islands, together with their appurtenant reefs and territorial waters, included in the Territory of hawaii on the date of enactment of this Act, except the atoll known a Palmyra Island, together with its appurtenant reefs and territorial waters, but said State shall not be deemed to include the Midway Islands, Johnston Island, Sand Island (off shore from Johnston Island, or Kingman Reef, together with their appurtenant reefs and territorial waters.”

 “Public Law 86-3 is the Act of Admission, the Act of Congress by which Hawaii was admitted as a State.

Section Two of that Act defines the area of the State to be those islands which were acquired by the Joint Resolution (30 Stat 750) an Act of Congress.

 Hawaii and the United States were separate and independent nations prior to July 7, 1898.

This Court may take judicial notice of that fact.

No act of Congress, no Act of the Congress of the United States, no act of any Congress in the world can, without more, result in the incorporation of the territory of another nation.

”(see Reference (1)) Reference (1): See Exchange of remarks, Senators Allen and Stewart, 55th Cong. 2d Session. 31 cong. Rec. 6369 (Senator Stewart taking the position that the resolution was mere “puffing,” in that the United States can “annex the world” if Congress so chose.)

No nation has that power and not nation ever will have that power. Equally true, no nation can suffer the loss of its lands by “joint resolution.”

It is not simply an illegal act – it is an impossible act.

See Statement of Senator Foraker admitting Joint Resolution cannot annex Hawaii. 55th Cong. 2d Sess. 31 Cong. Rec. 6585.

“So said the Supreme Court in Kalb v Feuerstein, 308 U.S. 433 (1940.(See Reference (2) The terms of Public Law 86-3 divests this Court of power.

Section Two is plain on its face.

The legislative history is more than clear: Congress deliberately sought to deny the Courts of the State of Hawaii in rem jurisdiction. (See reference 3)

Public Law 86-3 is the sole basis by which this Court derives its very existence, let alone its powers.

Reference (2): “In Kalb, appelants were ejected from their farm. Later, they brought an action in equity in the Circuit Court of Walworth County, Wisconsin, against the mortgagees, who had purchased at the sheriff’s sale, The appellants, farmers, sought restoration of possession, the cancellation of the sheriff’s deed and for removal of the mortgagees. Appellants had filed in the bankruptcy court for an extension of time to pay, under section 75 of the Bankruptcy Act, (Frazier-Lemke).

Nevertheless, the County Court granted the motion for confirmation of the sheriff’s sale and denied a stay. The mortgagees acquired the property by sale. The mortgagees ejected the appellants pursuant to a writ of execution.”

 “The issue was whether the County Court had jurisdiction. The confirmation of sale and ejectment took place while the petition was pending in the bankruptcy court.

On appeal, the Wisconsin Supreme Court stated: “It is the contention of the plaintiff that this statute is self-executing,….”.

Appellants had not applied for a stay in the County Court. The Supreme Court posed the issue as whether or not the Frazier-Lemke Act was self-executing, providing for a statutory, not a judicial stay. The Wisconsin Supreme Court decided that the Frazier-Lemke did not impose an automatic stay and thereby terminate the jurisdiction of the state court. Thus, the ejectment was not in violation of the law.”

 “The Supreme Court of the United States reversed. The Supreme Court deemed this an issue of power, of jurisdiction. The county court had jurisdiction over foreclosures in general. Nevertheless, then by its terms the Frazier-Lemke Act automatically divested the County Court of jurisdiction once a petition was filed. The County Court was stayed whether or not the appellants filed for such a stay in that court.

The effect of the federal law as automatic-not resting upon the affirmative act of the appellant. The appellant was not required to file to benefit from the stay.”

 “The principle in Kalb applies to the instant case. This Court is divested of in rem power by act of Congress. As in Kalb, it was the intent of Congress to deny this Court any power incident to in rem jurisdiction, whether eminent domain, the power to confirm a sale, to issue a writ of execution, or to quiet title.

” Reference (3): “Leaders of both the Republic of Hawaii and the Untied States were well aware of this fact.

 See Correspondence of Sanford Dole, President of Hawaii to A. Hartwell, dated November 15, 1899 from the State Archives of Hawaii (“A reference to the joint reolution of annexation and the treaty shows clearly the untenable position of the President’s order in that it attempts to affect land transfers made between July 7, and August 12, 1898; for the treaty by Article 1st agrees that the hawaiian Islands be annexed to the United State under the name of the Territory of Hawaii;”) the joint resolution changes this in a most radical way in the first paragraph by annexing the Hawaiian islands “as a part of the territory of the United States.”

The Treaty agreement having been departed from in this important particular by the joint resolution, it cannot be of course contended that the letter has an authority in relations to the Hawaiian Islands until it was accepted by us which acceptance took place on the 12th of August 1898.”

The protracted debate over the Joint Resolution had brought this fact to public attention.

 No one claimed that Congress had power beyond the boundaries of the United States.”

Note: Williamson B.C. Chang, University of Hawaii Professor, attorney, legal researcher is pono/good.

He was ridiculed by Federal Judge Ezra in the past, and lost his assets helping other aboriginal Hawaiians in the past.

Other researchers and I had at one time organized to do legal research, other research, and applied for grants.

Unfortunately, the plans fell through and we went our separate ways.

Thanks to his intensive, extensive research, the outcome shows that Professor Chang put the Court on notice when he documented

“Hawaii and the United States were separate and independent nations prior to July 7, 1898.

This Court may take judicial notice of that fact. No act of Congress, no Act of the Congress of the United States, no act of any Congress in the world can, without more, result in the incorporation of the territory of another nation.”

 Additionally, in Reference (1): “No nation has that power (to annex) and no nation ever will have that power. Equally true, no nation can suffer the loss of its lands by “joint resolution.”

“It is simply an illegal act – it is an impossible act.”

Lastly, in Reference (2): The issue of terminating “the jurisdiction of the state court” is possible.

Comment: Terminating “the jurisdiction of the state court, etc.” could be stated in an alternate fashion, “jurisdiction not granted”, a message which was sent out to the Courts, the Governor, Mayor(s), and U.S. President’s Clinton and Bush also via Senators Daniel Akaka, and Daniel Inouye time and time again (Certified/Registered Mailings, letters, personal visits to their offices, and e-mails).

39. 1959 Admissions Act. Statehood of Hawaii – 1959 and Executive Order by U.S. President Eisenhower.

The ‘Entity’/ Provisional Government turned Republic of Hawaii, turned Territory of the United States turned State of Hawaii (with Oppositions):

The State of Hawaii Attorney General claimed as follows:

“The 1959 Admission Act provides, at section two, that: The State of Hawaii shall consist of all the islands, together with their appurtenant reefs and territorial waters, included in the Territory of Hawaii on the date of enactment of this Act, except the atoll known as Palmyra Island, together with its appurtenant reefs and territorial waters, but said State shall not be deemed to include the Midway Islands, Johnston Island, Sand Island (off shore from Johnston Island), or Kingman Reef, together with their appurtenant reefs and territorial waters.”

“The validity of the Joint Resolution, Organic Act, and Admission Act have been judicially attacked before. None of these attacks have ever succeeded.”

2010 Update:  Harold Abel Cathcart was a first cousin of my great grandmother Mele Kauweloa.  He visited my great grandmother to discuss genealogies according to our family history.

The following was recorded on his Court documents: Cathcarts documents were also filed in the Affidavit/Lien No. 96-177455 on 12/17/96 (281 pages) at the Bureau of Conveyances on 12/17/96 (filer: Amelia Kuulei Gora, address, Mililani, Hawaii 96789)

41. Public Law 103-150, 103d Congress, to acknowledge the 100th anniversary of the January 17, 1893 ‘overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom’ etc – 1993.

U.S. President William Clinton signed this Joint Resolution with a disclaimer: “Nothing in this Joint Resolution is intended to serve as a settlement of any claims against the United States.”

 Approved: November 23, 1993.

The ‘Entity’/ Provisional Government turned Republic of Hawaii, turned Territory of the United States turned State of Hawaii (with Oppositions):

FACTS FOUND: Former Governor Waihee was employed by the group who wrote up the Public Law 103-150.

The Claimed Facts in the Public Law 103-150 is heavily flawed, or filled with erroneous ‘Facts’ or lies, lies, lies.

The historical evidence is being worked on disputing the United States claimed facts with evidence.

2010 Update:  Evidence has been found, much has been recorded in books, articles, and on the news on the web IOLANI – The Royal Hawk which has 276 issues to date, publisher, researcher, writer includes many and author Amelia Gora.

 42. Affidavit/Lien No. 96-177455 filed on 12/17/96 (281 pages) filed at the Bureau of Conveyances, Honolulu, Hawaii with issues of ownership of Hawaii’s lands, 133 islands; conspiracies/piracies discovered – examples, Pacific Cable Co.; genealogies; Queen Liliuokalani’s claim that she did not sign a Trust deed, etc.

The ‘Entity’/ Provisional Government turned Republic of Hawaii, turned Territory of the United States turned State of Hawaii (with Oppositions):

FACTS FOUND: Documented in Affidavit/Lien No. 96-177455 on 12/17/96 (281 pages) at the Bureau of Conveyances on 12/17/96 (filer: Amelia Kuulei Gora, address, Mililani, Hawaii 96789) Cost $25 to file, shortly after the State of Hawaii changed their fees to $25 per page up to a certain amount, then a lesser fee is charged. Cost to copy $.50 per page and $.50 to certify each page.

 A copy of the Affidavit/Lien was left at the Aiea Copy Service, Aiea Shopping Center, Aiea, Oahu, Hawaii, under the Hawaiian Genealogy Society file folder.

 The reason: so that many aboriginal Hawaiians, friends would not have to pay $300 + per copy as some have paid in the past. Cost is their printing cost only.

2010 Update:  The file was removed from the Aiea Copy Service since 2007.

43. Jurisdiction not granted to the U.S., the State; the City and County(ies) governments in Hawaii, including the coral reefs, islands, islets in Letters to the U.S. Presidents Clinton and GW Bush – 2003 – present.

The ‘Entity’/ Provisional Government turned Republic of Hawaii, turned Territory of the United States turned State of Hawaii (with Oppositions):

 FACTS FOUND: Our families claimed the coral reefs, the oceans, fisheries in 1832.

 The following are testimonies of the Facts: “ Owners exist. Kamehameha’s descendants exist. Royal persons exist, not subject to the laws. It is not our problem that the U.S. backed or assisted documented conspirators/Terrorists in Hawaii. References: Victoria Kamamalu’s Probate – First Circuit Court

44. Oppositions to the ‘A kaka’ – Daniel Akaka and Daniel Inouye’s Bill seeking to set up a native Hawaiian government, likened to the American Indians, destroy all the Kingdom of Hawaii records, transfer all the lands to the United States government and imprison researchers – 2001 to present.

aloha.

2010 update/editor note: This was written in 2005……….since then, additional information has been found that our Queen and people were under duress. stress. coercion, usurpation, etc……….due to the arrival of the military a day PRIOR to the dethronement with a gatling gun, etc.

Refer to article that I’ve posted previously……….then, print all and keep with your important files.

Also print WHAT EVERY KANAKA MAOLI NEEDS TO KNOW, and other important information intended to inform others that although Hawaii is the Criminal Mecca of the United States, it is important to remember that we maintain a neutral, friendly, non-violent nation that has been recorded as having gone “under ground”. 

We continue to maintain Queen Liliuokalani’s instructions, and continue to state that the Provisional government which evolved into the Republic, Territory and State are neither de facto nor de jure but an entity. 

Queen Liliuokalani and her subjects were under duress which means all is null and void.

Queen Liliuokalani maintained that the U.S. breached the Law of Nations.

To put it plainly, and to repeat what other kanaka maoli/aboriginal Hawaiians have been saying and documenting, “Hawaii IS A FAKE State!”

It is necessary that we the aboriginal Hawaiians – as Queen Liliuokalani identified us to be………or kanaka maoli as our tutus identified themselves to be according to the CENSUS records prior to the wrongful, criminal dethronement of our Queen —see the question on the CENSUS records “Are you a kanaka maoli” —our tutus answered “YES”.

 Evidence of our Alii are nearly in place….

Evidence of our Konohiki are nearly in place…..

Evidence for All our aboriginal Hawaiian people are hereby documented and recorded in the Kingdom of Hawaii Records No. 2010-0009.

U.S. CONGRESS PERPETUATION OF FRAUDS, DEVIANCE, CONSPIRACIES, PIRACIES and POINTS OF ISSUES

February 13, 2010

U.S. CONGRESS PERPETUATION OF FRAUDS, DEVIANCE, CONSPIRACIES, PIRACIES and POINTS OF ISSUES

                                                             Discussion by Amelia Gora (2010)

Due to the discovery of conspiracies/piraces supported by the U.S. President Harrison, Vice President Morton, U.S. Congress, and the U.S. military, and their paid supporters, the discussions in the Morgan Act, along with the Turpie Resolution were simply a “song and dance” maneuver to give an appearance to the other nations that justice was being given. The real issues stand whereas a criminal, belligerent, pirating nation maneuvered to assume a peaceful, friendly, neutral, non-violent nation, a wealthy nation which became evidence for all nations in the World to be watchful of the U.S. who utilized the Mahan’s Theories, the imperialistic moves by recklessly claiming 300 miles around the borders of the contiguous U.S.

 The highlights follows:

* Premeditation of Dethroning the Queen in 1893 was found by researcher Shane Lee – see article which is basically a Standing Order by CONGRESS.

 * CLEVELAND was Not the person to address but U.S. President Benjamin Harrison who did instruct everyone in Congress to ‘have a plebiscite to give the appearance that the people wanted the change’

*Harrison and his Vice President Morton were in collusion with the MORGAN Bankers and England to assume monies, assets of the Hawaiian Kingdom. (see articles posted previously).

*Discussion of the Provisional government which could last only two (2) years, and how to bring forward the Republic of Hawaii (based on the Texas Republic) can be found in the habeas corpus case of SHELDON, editor of the Hawaiian Holomua newspapers by the Provisional government (see Archives – Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii – First Circuit Court Case).

*the True Opposition to Annexation signed by Queen Liliuokalani found by researcher Kiliwehi Kekumano is contrary to the lies promoted by the belligerent entity Provisional government, turned Republic, turned Territory, and EXECUTIVE ORDERED State of Hawaii with Oppositions documented at every point by our aboriginal Hawaiians/kanaka maoli since continued oppositions documented by our Queen in 1893.

*Documented treasonous activities, etc.  *Add the facts that descendants of Kamehameha, heirs of Kamehameha III exists, etc.

*Add the fact that our Kingdom of Hawaii went “under ground” documented, and continues to exist amidst terrorists, treasonous persons amongst our good people. aloha from one of the members of the Royal families….Ua Mau Ke Ea o ka Aina i ka pono!

The purpose of the United Nations is One World Order/New World Order.

Isn’t it interesting that the person visiting is from Japan, when the group gathered it was to plunder upon Japan’s innocents……thru the use of the Nuclear bombs? Hiroshima and Nagasaki…..

now, a representative from the very nation moves to connect with a neutral, non violent nation who also appears to defend the destructive nation, U.S. and accommodates the criminal activities of DU/ depleted uranium?

I have a book, and did file parts of it in the Affidavit/Lien/Notice No. 96-177455 (281 pages) filed on 12/17/96 which shows the strategic maps and the fear of the Japanese and efforts to lay down cables were made so that the sugar planters/Americans in Hawaii could notify the U.S. government that the Japanese were heading their way.

It is documented that it would take more than 10 years to get the Japanese out of San Francisco Bay, etc.

Due to loans based on LEASE lands, associations by PIRATES OF THE PACIFIC: Charles Reed Bishop and Friends, the Pacific Cable Company was started in 1878………………yes, plans to assume Hawaii was in the works well before dethroning our Queen in 1893!

aloha.

“Preservation of our planet” would be an argument for non use of DU/depleted uranium anywhere. But, according to Leuren Moret, the Queen of England has the majority shares of the uranium mines……..

The UN has never represented the people of the planet. It was a place where the vast majority of countries could make speeches but all the real decisions were made behind closed doors by a tiny in-bred elite. The UN presided over genocide, war and the deliberate spreading of disease. It will soon run out of money, be dissolved and replaced by an entirely new organization that truly represents the people of the planet earth. Sayonara UN.
********Couldn’t have said it any better………..aloha.

thanks Amelia,

I came across a letter dated March 19 2009 to close for comfort cause in Oct we sent a letter for contentions and standing. It’s about changes in defining DU which is super crazy and tells why NRC is in Hawaii.

We are so dam easy to walk over like ants. Will get back to this posting. Kaohi

Amelia,
Under the gun, so to speak.. I can’t believe how we the people of Hawaii are being abused by the NRC and AEC plus the Pentagon how in the world this could be happening right before our eyes.

Things did not add up with the video conferencing and Tad Davis visit to Hawaii. I realized that the rules for NRC are being rewritten and we were pawns in the game. Luckily you weren’t there!

The NRC are waste streaming depleted uranium through their rules, and of course Hawaii is vulnerable for lack of education etc..

About ten years ago, Waianae Coalition, and Representative Mike bought into hook line and sinker the up coming dangerous ideals of making money through “waste stream” I tried to not connect this to the situation here, but it keeps poping up.

Today, I came home from work and started researching this problem. I did not have the citation, so I just did it on probability. Since March 2009 everything has gone nuts on the web over the issue of DU and waste stream and Class A. for RDD and IND.

The stryker brigade cannot go to the continent they have to come here by their NRC rules. Good grief how evil! I’m tired need to work tomorrow. talk later. What I am upset about is their is no way of cleaning up the dam DU and it’s not safe to be around both Plutonium and other type of isotopes in surface dumping. Plus the chem trail it leaves along the highway. much aloha Kaohi

Never look a gifted horse in the mouth for you may feel sorry for it. And if you are one who believes you deserve anything without deserving it, you are the one they are looking for.

Especially so, during the off-seasonal holidays like Valentine’s, Mother’s and Father’s. And if you get something for President’s Day, you will be probably buying a bridge in Dubai very shortly.

Subject: Census Jobs as Training

Aloha Kakou,

The census is still looking for people in Hawai‘i. If anyone is
looking for work, this might be a good idea. But not just for the job.
If we learn the process for the census, then we could use this
information to help register all of the Hawaiian Kingdom subjects.

The census pays $12-$23.

Anyone interested?

Mahlao,

what’s funny? the idea of removing the portraits of the bad guys from ‘positions of honor’ within state government buildings, of course. and the fact that civic club members passed a reso in support of it. wouldn’t have happened five years ago. nowadays the civic clubs are stepping out all over the place. i like to think we (our club) had a lot to do with these small transformation. those clubs that have kept silent for a long time, for whatever reason, seem to be bustin’ out. i noticed this at the last meeting when the body approved keoni agard’s dissenting report on the akaka bill and our reso re support for cultural practice. some of the ‘old guard’ (some might call them big hitters) tried to stop these issues from moving forward. it’s great to have a show of hands–people get to see who takes what position. the invisible become visible. it’s all good.

Subject: FW: This scam happened in Hawaii

Please see below. Pass on to family & friends in Hawaii .
Safety Manager, High School
Hi everyone,

I want to let you all know that Frank and I have been the victims of credit card fraud this week and felt I should warn you all about the clever scam. It works like this:

Last Wednesday I had a phone call late morning from Express Couriers to ask if I was going to be home as he had a delivery for me. He said he would there in roughly an hour. He turned up with a beautiful basket of flowers and wine. I expressed my surprise as I wasn’t expecting anything like this and said I was intrigued to know who was sending me such a lovely gift. He said he was only delivering the gift and the card was being sent separately (the card has never arrived). There was a consignment note with the gift.

He went on to explain that because the gift contained alcohol he has to charge the recipient $3.50 as proof that he has actually delivered to an adult, and not left on a door step if the recipient is out, to be stolen or taken by children. This seemed logical and I offered to get the cash. He then said that the company required the payment to be by Eftpos (credit card) so he’s not handling cash and everything is properly accounted for. Frank was there and got his credit card and ‘John’ swiped the card on this small mobile machine that also had a small screen upon which Frank entered his pin number. A receipt was printed out and given to us.

Between last Thursday and Monday, $4,000 was withdrawn from our credit account at ATM machines in the North Shore and Rotorua area. It appears a dummy credit card was made using the details in the machine and, of course, they had Frank’s pin number.

The Bank has stopped our cards and I’ve been to the Police this morning, where they confirmed that it is a definite scam and many households were hit during the first 3 days of October.

So PLEASE be wary of accepting a gift you’re not expecting, especially if the card is not with it. We’ve all received gifts like this and would never dream that it could be such a despicable act. Please also let other female friends and relatives know. Hopefully, these fraudsters have ceased this activity by now but you never know. I wanted to warn all my friends.

P.S. I don’t think I’ll ever drink the wine – I’d probably choke on it!

If you do have this happening try to record as much detail as you can, Person¢s description, vehicle driven, license, color, make, etc.

Sophists for sanctions

By Stephen Gowans

Tony Hawkins, a professor of economics at the University of Zimbabwe, thinks that Western sanctions on Zimbabwe should be maintained but that their effects “are minimal” and that “their continued existence really plays into the hands of some people in Zanu-PF.”

You would think, then, that Hawkins would favor the lifting of sanctions. After all, why continue to play into the hands of Zanu-PF, if, like Hawkins, you’re opposed to the party, its direction and its program, and the sanctions’ effects are minimal anyway?

For decades, supporters of the U.S. economic war on Cuba have lied that a near total U.S. blockade of the island has had little effect on the Cuban economy. On the contrary, they say, the blockade has actually worked against the U.S., by handing Fidel Castro, and now his brother, Raul, a way of diverting attention from their “failed” economic policies. The Castros, they say, blame Cuba’s problems on the blockade and thus evade responsibility for their much larger role in crippling the island’s economy.

Yet none of these people has recommended that the blockade be lifted, a measure you would think Cuba-opponents would immediately latch onto for its supposed benefits in making clear to Cubans that socialism, not the U.S. blockade, is the source of their poverty, something that might impel them to fulfill U.S. foreign policy goals by overturning socialism. So, why aren’t these people, if they truly believe what they’re saying, pressing for the blockade to be lifted? Continued at http://gowans.wordpress.com/2010/02/09/sophists-for-sanctions/

Closing the Deal in Health Reform, With or Without the GOP
Any ideas will be considered in the health care summit; but most Democrats are confident that after public debate, with input from recognized health care experts, any reasonable observers will conclude that the GOP proposals, as we’ve heard before, will not be better than the (probably-by-then-reconciled) House/Senate plan for making health care insurance more available, dependable, and affordable (and lowering the deficit).

The New Moon in Aquarius is the energetic time of year to plant seeds of ideas and ideals that will benefit all of us in the future. This year this is a vitally important activity. This new Moon falls near America’s Aquarian Moon, which represents the People and their needs. What values do we want to live by? What virtues need renewing?

Well, one of the AP’s big headlines following the Super Bowl on Sunday was “Super Bowl is Most Watched TV Show Ever”.

On Monday, Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei vowed to deliver a “punch in the mouth” to those who might exercise their right to peaceful dissent today during Iran’s national holiday. But a “punch” is a far cry from the two executions recently carried out for the same reasons.
Don’t let Iran execute any more people for expressing their dissenting views!

Dear amelia,

Today during Iran’s Victory of the Revolution Day, when words like “revolution”, “independence” and “freedom” are on everyone’s lips, fears of torture, repression and death still remain.

The shock is still very much palpable over the two horrific hangings that took place in Iran just weeks ago. The two hanged men became the “fall guys” for the post-Presidential election violence that consumed the streets of Iran last summer. This happened despite the fact that the accused men were nowhere near the widespread demonstrations – they were already in prison!

Now fear mounts again that 9 more men will hang based on similarly outrageous charges. Help focus Iran’s attention on its real problem. Urge Iran to stop the executions!

Today as Iranians pour onto the streets once again by the thousands we can’t help but fear that their fate may be the same. They are Iranian citizens who gather to peacefully protest and demonstrate against the actions of their own government. But they are corralled like cattle, beaten back with sticks and even dragged away to cages.

But even Iran must answer to someone for these human rights abuses. On Monday, the United Nations Human Rights Council will conduct an in-depth review of Iran’s human rights record and recommend concrete actions to improve its standing. Even Iran, known to be strongly resistant to external parties investigating these issues, has called the Council the most competent body in dealing with human rights.

Amnesty’s researchers have recommended to the Council that they include the following points in their final review of Iran’s human rights record:
Halt all executions of juvenile offenders
End the use of indefinite prison sentences, torture and other forms of ill-treatment in detention
Prohibit the executive use of excessive force by riot police and Basij paramilitaries
Most importantly, we ask that Iranian authorities finally allow independent investigators into the country to observe and report on torture and other human rights abuses directly.

To date, we’ve relied on the brave reporting being done by citizens in Iran to give us this information. Despite the best efforts of their government to clamp down on all media and communications carrying these stories – even the most recent banning of Google’s email service, Gmail – they manage to break through.

We especially can’t shake the eerie memory of Neda, a young woman whose brutal death during last summer’s demonstrations was captured on video and shared on YouTube – stunning and saddening viewers by the millions.

As we expected, once again YouTube videos, messages on Twitter, and blogs from those participating in today’s demonstrations are surfacing – telling the true stories of what’s happening on the streets of Iran.

Remember that today we’re counting on you to help us raise the voice of those calling for freedom and justice in Iran by showing your support online.

All your messages, blogs, videos and emails are helping to build a stronger case against Iran’s human rights record. And Iran will have to answer for it one day very soon.

Thank you for standing with us and the people of Iran,

Elise Auerbach, Christoph Koettl and the rest of the Iran crisis response team

Just for Laffs

Amidst All the Serious Business………Howz About some HUMOR?
Posted by Amelia Gora on February 8, 2010 at 11:39pm in Politics

Found this posted at the English forums:

Peed my pants laughing!

I took my dad to the mall the other day to buy some new shoes
(he is 66).

We decided to grab a bite at the food court.

I noticed he was watching a teenager sitting next to him.

The teenager had spiked hair in all different colours – green, red, orange, and blue. My dad kept staring at him.

The teenager kept looking and would find my dad staring everytime.
When the teenager had had enough, he sarcastically asked: “What’s the matter old man, never done anything wild in your life?”

Knowing my Dad, I quickly swallowed my food so that I would not choke on his response; I knew he would have
a good one!

In classic style he responded without batting an eyelid
“Got stoned once and f**ked a peacock. I was just wondering if you were my son.”
– Jason

That’s exactly how I feel right now!!!! Makaha home of peeea…pee…cocks and the rest of the communities are teenage spikers. I’m probably going to get fired today …because as usual, I will not stand down…!!!! for bullies in my classroom.

I want to tell parents where they can get off using our classroom as a place for babysitting. Raising evil for the good is not what I envisioned for our Nation or anything pertaining to Hawaii. Haiti has chaos and pe….cocks running around, why? And now they are looking for outside help for a natural disaster.

And the UN’s in Hawaii–Why?

So thanks I needed this piece of humor and need to get to work. Much love LOL Kaohi

hi Kaohi,

When I worked with the DOE as a Special Ed teacher……….couldn’t stand the bully behaviors in the classroom too……

Have noticed that out of fear, the children supported the behavior of the bully ones and were very nervous when the problematic ones were near……..

It took a while to realize that the kids are that way because their DNA’s are messed up (to put it nicely)….

It’s due to their parents faults, their failure to take care of their health (excesses in drugs, drinks….) that had something to do with the kids being the way they were………..

Now, it appears another factor contributes to the irrational behavior of the bullies in Waianae or anyone near the environmental toxins, pollutions contributed by the military such as the DU/depleted uranium, other environmental toxins from the GMO’s, and the rest of the crap that UH – Manoa experiments that continue and are financed by the Federal government today…………agent orange of the past buried in the Ewa Plains – contributed to the environment turning toxic on the Big Island prior to the use in Vietnam, etc………….and all kinds of other experiment ongoing with “funding” by many………..suspect the UN is behind of it because after all, they move to PLUNDER upon Innocents since Day 1 — going after the Japanese with the Nuclear Bombs, etc.

The UN in Hawaii should raise suspicions for all concerned about health, safety, wellness, and the ramifications of their supporting belligerent nations in utilizing Genocide caustics, toxins, poisons, etc.

I give you credit for doing what you do…….because I found my limits and working with DNA damaged children is not for me……….can only support them from afar.

Much Aloha.

love them from afar.

They understood the play and realized that I care more about nonbully students and really care about our kids that come to school to learn. The HSA is on and every teacher in the DOE are focusing on teaching. So, althoug I didn’t get fired I managed to survive the day.

It’ so sad…I got through the chaos and met some people that are just on it and sum that are not on the track of teaching and learning just plain drama. The people that are caring about our society and teaching are the unsung heros for me each day. Bless their hearts.

hi Kaohi,

having a population of DNA damaged people appears to be the goal of New World Order/One World Order……..

the way i figure it, the NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND program is set in place with minimal expectations… because the goal would be for the child – DNA damaged ones, would only need to learn minimally because they will be the frontline soldiers for a WARMONGERING nation such as the United States who operates as the New World Order/One World Order military………..

there is a concern that such DNA damaged, inept people could eventually be trusted in controlling the Nuclear missile buttons………..and thank God GWBush is no longer there…..but sad to say that OBAMA is assuming the role……..does anyone know which Presidents attended Special Education btw? hmmm……

aloha.

p.s. with a nation of DNA damaged people, no one would question the WARS would they?

Do you think we can stop the UN from 14 points of disaster, and stop them from carving out our common law of “mordern realities with traditional Hawaiian values and writing aloha into our laws” ? MidWeek February 10, 2010.

Embedded are our water and access rights and yes I am concern that someone had convinced the UN to come to Hawaii like Pentagon, NRC and AEC and screw up our environment for Green profits.

I am concern with Depleted Uranium Waste Streaming and RDD/ IND…Class A and their stockholdings that disregard public safety in place of Aloha. Profits over our lives, but why? Why can’t people just understand that DU can never be safe or cleaned up. I’m so upset. Kaohi

Hi Kaohi,

found out from Jean earlier today………he said he would attend……will find out more later…..have a relative also who attends the meetings with his friends and most likely will find out info too.

Jean said Van Dyke was pro Akaka………….and the other was pro United Nations, however, the value was that he took on the International laws perspective…………and to some degree that was valuable.

did ask Jean to post a story for the IOLANI if he could…….

aloha.

p.s. Jean said that the Burial Council meeting today was illegal because they did not forewarn everyone about what was going to be heard…….and up until 4:00 PM yesterday, it was not posted……therefore, the stuff on the agenda was illegal………..they actually threw in the KAWAIAHAO Church issues….

There were babies lined up in heaven and the first was a haole baby, and God gifted him with wings… and said “you’re an angel”……….

the second was a haole baby, and God gifted him with wings……..and said “you’re an angel”……..

the third baby was a haole baby….the popolo baby said ‘how about me?’ and was told ‘not yet!’, and God gave the haole baby wings……….and said “you’re an angel”…..

then the popolo baby’s turn came up….and God gave him wings……..the popolo baby said “ooh, am I an angel now?………..and God said “no, you’s a bat!”

cruel but funny lol……can only guess who made up that joke!

aloha.

A man visited a donut shop one morning because he had tried some of the raisin cookies from his office and wanted some for himself……….

While waiting in line, he noticed the swinging door was open……..and noticed the baker without a shirt on, cut slices of cookie dough and grabbed two pieces, slapped it on his chest and placed in on the cookie sheet…………this went on until the cookie sheet was filled…………..

the baker then opened a jar of raisins and placed a raisin into each of the impressions………..

The customer was so excited that he complained to the cashier about how unsanitary that was, even though he enjoyed the raisin cookies ……….

The cahier heard the complaint and said………..”if you think that’s unsanitary………..how do you think he makes his doughnuts?”

lol.
old joke but funny…….

much aloha.

CLAIMING YOUR ANCESTORS LANDS — ALLODIAL ISSUES…..

The following article was posted in the IOLANI – The Royal Hawk.

This message is being sent again because the EXHIBIT section was not covered.

The legal documents should contain the following in the following order:

1) Cover page (covers ancestors name, RP/Royal Patent Number, LCA/ Land Commission Award number

2) Affidavit/Certification (family genealogies)

3) Heirs and Assigns page

4) EXHIBITS (Write EXHIBITS in top right hand corner):
a. RP/Royal Patent LCA/Land Commission Award brief history (shows names of deceased owners and successors)
b. Survey Notes (obtain from the Archives, Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii) which shows the map, dimensions of the land(s). (ask the Archivist how to obtain your survey notes….. also ask how to look at the books available documenting awards from the Great Mahele/ Kamehameha III period, an extra step to take is to find out the testimonies in regards to the parcel(s)/lands belonging to your families.

5) JURAT, NOTARY page

6) Xerox two (2) or more sets. The notary usually wants to do only two (2) for a set. If more copies are needed for family members, you could make copies after the notary signs the documents, and even after the filing is completed.

7) obtain a notary signature from your Credit Union, bank — First Hawaiian Bank has a preferred customer account that you may be able to qualify for……worth it because the cost of a Notary will be nothing/free……….at the Credit Unions and some banks also give free notary signature……cousin paid about $50 a couple of weeks ago —$5 per notary signature.

8) take the two (2) sets of documents to the Bureau of Conveyances, Regular System section and pay $25 for a set which covers up to 20 pages. Any amount of pages over 20 will cost $1 per page.

9) The Bureau of Conveyances located on Punchbowl Street is open in the mornings till 3:30 p.m. They do not accept documents later than that time. (Mondays-Fridays (Holidays closed)).

aloha and malama pono.

——————————————————————————–

Article 1
The Purposes of the United Nations are:

1. To maintain international peace and security, and to that end: to take effective collective measures for the prevention and removal of threats to the peace, and for the suppression of acts of aggression or other breaches of the peace, and to bring about by peaceful means, and in conformity with the principles of justice and international law, adjustment or settlement of international disputes or situations which might lead to a breach of the peace;

2. To develop friendly relations among nations based on respect for the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples, and to take other appropriate measures to strengthen universal peace;

3. To achieve international cooperation in solving international problems of an economic, social, cultural, or humanitarian character, and in promoting and encouraging respect for human rights and for fundamental freedoms for all without distinction as to race, sex, language, or religion; and

4. To be a center for harmonizing the actions of nations in the attainment of these common ends.

Article 2
The Organization and its Members, in pursuit of the Purposes stated in Article 1, shall act in accordance with the following Principles.

1. The Organization is based on the principle of the sovereign equality of all its Members.

2. All Members, in order to ensure to all of them the rights and benefits resulting from membership, shall fulfill in good faith the obligations assumed by them in accordance with the present Charter.

3. All Members shall settle their international disputes by peaceful means in such a manner that international peace and security, and justice, are not endangered.

4. All Members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state, or in any other manner inconsistent with the Purposes of the United Nations.

5. All Members shall give the United Nations every assistance in any action it takes in accordance with the present Charter, and shall refrain from giving assistance to any state against which the United Nations is taking preventive or enforcement action.

6. The Organization shall ensure that states which are not Members of the United Nations act in accordance with these Principles so far as may be necessary for the maintenance of international peace and security.

7. Nothing contained in the present Charter shall authorize the United Nations to intervene in matters which are essentially within the domestic jurisdiction of any state or shall require the Members to submit such matters to settlement under the present Charter; but this principle shall not prejudice the application of enforcement measures under Chapter VII.
*********************************
Charter of the United Nations
Chapter XIV

The International Court of Justice

——————————————————————————–

Article 92
The International Court of Justice shall be the principal judicial organ of the United Nations. It shall function in accordance with the annexed Statute which is based upon the Statute of the Permanent Court of International Justice and forms an integral part of the present Charter.

Article 93
1. All Members of the United Nations are ipso facto parties to the Statute of the International Court of Justice.

2. A state which is not a Member of the United Nations may become a party to the Statute of the International Court of Justice on conditions to be determined in each case by the General Assembly upon the recommendation of the Security Council.

Article 94
1. Each Member of the United Nations undertakes to comply with the decision of the International Court of Justice in any case to which it is a party.

2. If any party to a case fails to perform the obligations incumbent upon it under a judgment rendered by the Court, the other party may have recourse to the Security Council, which may, if it deems necessary, make recommendations or decide upon measures to be taken to give effect to the judgment.

Article 95
Nothing in the present Charter shall prevent Members of the United Nations from entrusting the solution of their differences to other tribunals by virtue of agreements already in existence or which may be concluded in the future.

Article 96
1. The General Assembly or the Security Council may request the International Court of Justice to give an advisory opinion on any legal question.

2. Other organs of the United Nations and specialized agencies, which may at any time be so authorized by the General Assembly, may also request advisory opinions of the Court on legal questions arising within the scope of their activities.

——————————————————————————–
The purpose of the United Nations is One World Order/New World Order.

Isn’t it interesting that the person visiting is from Japan, when the group gathered it was to plunder upon Japan’s innocents……thru the use of the Nuclear bombs? Hiroshima and Nagasaki…..

now, a representative from the very nation moves to connect with a neutral, non violent nation who also appears to defend the destructive nation, U.S. and accommodates the criminal activities of DU/ depleted uranium?

I have a book, and did file parts of it in the Affidavit/Lien/Notice No. 96-177455 (281 pages) filed on 12/17/96 which shows the strategic maps and the fear of the Japanese and efforts to lay down cables were made so that the sugar planters/Americans in Hawaii could notify the U.S. government that the Japanese were heading their way.

It is documented that it would take more than 10 years to get the Japanese out of San Francisco Bay, etc.

Due to loans based on LEASE lands, associations by PIRATES OF THE PACIFIC: Charles Reed Bishop and Friends, the Pacific Cable Company was started in 1878………………yes, plans to assume Hawaii was in the works well before dethroning our Queen in 1893!

aloha.

 
“Preservation of our planet” would be an argument for non use of DU/depleted uranium anywhere. But, according to Leuren Moret, the Queen of England has the majority shares of the uranium mines……..

The UN has never represented the people of the planet. It was a place where the vast majority of countries could make speeches but all the real decisions were made behind closed doors by a tiny in-bred elite. The UN presided over genocide, war and the deliberate spreading of disease. It will soon run out of money, be dissolved and replaced by an entirely new organization that truly represents the people of the planet earth. Sayonara UN.
********Couldn’t have said it any better………..aloha.

Never look a gifted horse in the mouth for you may feel sorry for it. And if you are one who believes you deserve anything without deserving it, you are the one they are looking for. 

Especially so, during the off-seasonal holidays like Valentine’s, Mother’s and Father’s. And if you get something for President’s Day, you will be probably buying a bridge in Dubai very shortly.

Can one imagine the plantation parcels of the Paradise, Sandwich Islands, that was advertised “fee simple”  in the journals of American Board of Missionaries?

Subject: Census Jobs as Training

Aloha Kakou,

The census is still looking for people in Hawai‘i. If anyone is
looking for work, this might be a good idea. But not just for the job.
If we learn the process for the census, then we could use this
information to help register all of the Hawaiian Kingdom subjects.

The census pays $12-$23.

Anyone interested?

Mahlao,

what’s funny?  the idea of removing the portraits of the bad guys from ‘positions of honor’ within state government buildings, of course.  and the fact that civic club members passed a reso in support of it.  wouldn’t have happened five years ago.  nowadays the civic clubs are stepping out all over the place.  i like to think we (our club) had a lot to do with these small transformation.  those clubs that have kept silent for a long time, for whatever reason, seem to be bustin’ out.  i noticed this at the last meeting when the body approved keoni agard’s dissenting report on the akaka bill and our reso re support for cultural practice.  some of the ‘old guard’ (some might call them big hitters) tried to stop these issues from moving forward.  it’s great to have a show of hands–people get to see who takes what position.  the invisible become visible.  it’s all good.

Subject: FW: This scam happened in Hawaii

Please see below.  Pass on to family & friends in Hawaii .
Safety Manager,          High School
Hi everyone,

I want to let you all know that Frank and I have been the victims of credit card fraud this week and felt I should warn you all about the clever scam.  It works like this:

Last Wednesday I had a phone call late morning from Express Couriers to ask if I was going to be home as he had a delivery for me. He said he would there in roughly an hour.  He turned up with a beautiful basket of flowers and wine.  I expressed my surprise as I wasn’t expecting anything like this and said I was intrigued to know who was sending me such a lovely gift.  He said he was only delivering the gift and the card was being sent separately (the card has never arrived).  There was a consignment note with the gift.

He went on to explain that because the gift contained alcohol he has to charge the recipient $3.50 as proof that he has actually delivered to an adult, and not left on a door step if the recipient is out, to be stolen or taken by children.  This seemed logical and I offered to get the cash.  He then said that the company required the payment to be by Eftpos (credit card) so he’s not handling cash and everything is properly accounted for.  Frank was there and got his credit card and ‘John’ swiped the card on this small mobile machine that also had a small screen upon which Frank entered his pin number.  A receipt was printed out and given to us.

Between last Thursday and Monday, $4,000 was withdrawn from our credit account at ATM machines in the North Shore and Rotorua area. It appears a dummy credit card was made using the details in the machine and, of course, they had Frank’s pin number.

The Bank has stopped our cards and I’ve been to the Police this morning, where they confirmed that it is a definite scam and many households were hit during the first 3 days of October.

So PLEASE be wary of accepting a gift you’re not expecting, especially if the card is not with it.  We’ve all received gifts like this and would never dream that it could be such a despicable act. Please also let other female friends and relatives know.  Hopefully, these fraudsters have ceased this activity by now but you never know.  I wanted to warn all my friends.

P.S.  I don’t think I’ll ever drink the wine – I’d probably choke on it!

If you do have this happening try to record as much detail as you can, Person¢s description, vehicle driven, license, color,  make, etc.

Sophists for sanctions
 
By Stephen Gowans
 
Tony Hawkins, a professor of economics at the University of Zimbabwe, thinks that Western sanctions on Zimbabwe should be maintained but that their effects “are minimal” and that “their continued existence really plays into the hands of some people in Zanu-PF.”

You would think, then, that Hawkins would favor the lifting of sanctions. After all, why continue to play into the hands of Zanu-PF, if, like Hawkins, you’re opposed to the party, its direction and its program, and the sanctions’ effects are minimal anyway?
 
For decades, supporters of the U.S. economic war on Cuba have lied that a near total U.S. blockade of the island has had little effect on the Cuban economy. On the contrary, they say, the blockade has actually worked against the U.S., by handing Fidel Castro, and now his brother, Raul, a way of diverting attention from their “failed” economic policies. The Castros, they say, blame Cuba’s problems on the blockade and thus evade responsibility for their much larger role in crippling the island’s economy.
 
Yet none of these people has recommended that the blockade be lifted, a measure you would think Cuba-opponents would immediately latch onto for its supposed benefits in making clear to Cubans that socialism, not the U.S. blockade, is the source of their poverty, something that might impel them to fulfill U.S. foreign policy goals by overturning socialism. So, why aren’t these people, if they truly believe what they’re saying, pressing for the blockade to be lifted? Continued at http://gowans.wordpress.com/2010/02/09/sophists-for-sanctions/

Can you imagine living in an America freed from constant wars?
I certainly can; it would be a new kind of America where war was no longer such a dominant part of our lives and our national discourse. A nation that could use its great wealth for positive developments such as better systems of education, universal health care, creation of alternates to fossil fuels, improving our infrastructure, and providing a safer environment for our society.

  On Monday, Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei vowed to deliver a “punch in the mouth” to those who might exercise their right to peaceful dissent today during Iran’s national holiday. But a “punch” is a far cry from the two executions recently carried out for the same reasons.
Don’t let Iran execute any more people for expressing their dissenting views!
 
 
         
Dear amelia,

Today during Iran’s Victory of the Revolution Day, when words like “revolution”, “independence” and “freedom” are on everyone’s lips, fears of torture, repression and death still remain.

The shock is still very much palpable over the two horrific hangings that took place in Iran just weeks ago. The two hanged men became the “fall guys” for the post-Presidential election violence that consumed the streets of Iran last summer. This happened despite the fact that the accused men were nowhere near the widespread demonstrationsthey were already in prison!

Now fear mounts again that 9 more men will hang based on similarly outrageous charges. Help focus Iran’s attention on its real problem. Urge Iran to stop the executions!

Today as Iranians pour onto the streets once again by the thousands we can’t help but fear that their fate may be the same. They are Iranian citizens who gather to peacefully protest and demonstrate against the actions of their own government. But they are corralled like cattle, beaten back with sticks and even dragged away to cages.

But even Iran must answer to someone for these human rights abuses. On Monday, the United Nations Human Rights Council will conduct an in-depth review of Iran’s human rights record and recommend concrete actions to improve its standing. Even Iran, known to be strongly resistant to external parties investigating these issues, has called the Council the most competent body in dealing with human rights.

Amnesty’s researchers have recommended to the Council that they include the following points in their final review of Iran’s human rights record:

  • Halt all executions of juvenile offenders
  • End the use of indefinite prison sentences, torture and other forms of ill-treatment in detention
  • Prohibit the executive use of excessive force by riot police and Basij paramilitaries

Most importantly, we ask that Iranian authorities finally allow independent investigators into the country to observe and report on torture and other human rights abuses directly.

To date, we’ve relied on the brave reporting being done by citizens in Iran to give us this information. Despite the best efforts of their government to clamp down on all media and communications carrying these stories – even the most recent banning of Google’s email service, Gmail – they manage to break through.

We especially can’t shake the eerie memory of Neda, a young woman whose brutal death during last summer’s demonstrations was captured on video and shared on YouTube – stunning and saddening viewers by the millions.

As we expected, once again YouTube videos, messages on Twitter, and blogs from those participating in today’s demonstrations are surfacing – telling the true stories of what’s happening on the streets of Iran.

Remember that today we’re counting on you to help us raise the voice of those calling for freedom and justice in Iran by showing your support online.

All your messages, blogs, videos and emails are helping to build a stronger case against Iran’s human rights record. And Iran will have to answer for it one day very soon.

Thank you for standing with us and the people of Iran,

Elise Auerbach, Christoph Koettl and the rest of the Iran crisis response team

Just for Laffs

Amidst All the Serious Business………Howz About some HUMOR?

 

Found this posted at the English forums:

Peed my pants laughing!

  I took my dad to the mall the other day to buy some new shoes
(he is 66).
 
 We decided to grab a bite at the food court.
 
I noticed he was watching a teenager sitting next to him.
 
 The teenager had spiked hair in all different colours – green, red, orange, and blue. My dad kept staring at him.
 
 The teenager kept looking and would find my dad staring everytime.
When the teenager had had enough, he sarcastically asked: “What’s the matter old man, never done anything wild in your life?”
 
 Knowing my Dad, I quickly swallowed my food so that I would not choke on his response; I knew he would have
a good one!
 
 In classic style he responded without batting an eyelid
 “Got stoned once and f**ked a peacock. I was just wondering if you were my son.”

 – Jason

CLAIMING YOUR ANCESTORS LANDS — ALLODIAL ISSUES…..

  The following article was posted in the IOLANI – The Royal Hawk.

  This message is being sent again because the EXHIBIT section was not covered.

  The legal documents should contain the following in the following order:

  1)  Cover page (covers ancestors name, RP/Royal Patent Number, LCA/ Land Commission Award number

  2)  Affidavit/Certification (family genealogies)

  3)  Heirs and Assigns page

  4) EXHIBITS (Write EXHIBITS in top right hand corner):
     a.   RP/Royal Patent LCA/Land Commission Award brief history (shows names of deceased owners and successors)
     b.  Survey Notes (obtain from the Archives, Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii) which shows the map, dimensions of the land(s).  (ask the Archivist how to obtain your survey notes….. also ask how to look at the books available documenting awards from the Great Mahele/ Kamehameha III period, an extra step to take is to find out the testimonies in regards to the parcel(s)/lands belonging to your families.

  5)  JURAT, NOTARY page

  6)  Xerox two (2) or more sets.  The notary usually wants to do only two (2) for a set.  If more copies are needed for family members, you could make copies after the notary signs the documents, and even after the filing is completed.

  7)  obtain a notary signature from your Credit Union, bank — First Hawaiian Bank has a preferred customer account that you may be able to qualify for……worth it because the cost of a Notary will be nothing/free……….at the Credit Unions and some banks also give free notary signature……cousin paid about $50 a couple of weeks ago —$5 per notary signature.

  8)  take the two (2) sets of documents to the Bureau of Conveyances, Regular System section and pay $25 for a set which covers up to 20 pages.  Any amount of pages over 20 will cost $1 per page.

  9)  The Bureau of Conveyances located on Punchbowl Street is open in the mornings till 3:30 p.m. They do not accept documents later than that time.  (Mondays-Fridays (Holidays closed)).

  aloha and malama pono.

A man visited a donut shop one morning because he had tried some of the raisin cookies from his office and wanted some for himself……….

While waiting in line, he noticed the swinging door was open……..and noticed the baker without a shirt on, cut slices of cookie dough and grabbed two pieces, slapped it on his chest and placed in on the cookie sheet…………this went on until the cookie sheet was filled…………..

the baker then opened a jar of raisins and placed a raisin into each of the impressions………..

The customer was so excited that he complained to the cashier about how unsanitary that was, even though he enjoyed the raisin cookies ……….

 
The cahier heard the complaint and said………..”if you think that’s unsanitary………..how do you think he makes his doughnuts?”

lol.
old joke but funny…….

much aloha.

 
There were babies lined up in heaven and the first was a haole baby, and God gifted him with wings… and said “you’re an angel”……….

 
the second was a haole baby, and God gifted him with wings……..and said “you’re an angel”……..

 
the third baby was a haole baby….the popolo baby said ‘how about me?’ and was told ‘not yet!’, and God gave the haole baby wings……….and said “you’re an angel”…..

 
then the popolo baby’s turn came up….and God gave him wings……..the popolo baby said “ooh, am I an angel now?………..and God said “no, you’s a bat!”

 
cruel but funny lol……can only guess who made up that joke!

aloha.

Yes, let’ go to the movies yeah!!!I like you too.

Hi Kaohi,

found out from Jean earlier today………he said he would attend……will find out more later…..have a relative also who attends the meetings with his friends and most likely will find out info too.

Jean said Van Dyke was pro Akaka………….and the other was pro United Nations, however, the value was that he took on the International laws perspective…………and to some degree that was valuable.

did ask Jean to post a story for the IOLANI if he could…….

aloha.

p.s. Jean said that the Burial Council meeting today was illegal because they did not forewarn everyone about what was going to be heard…….and up until 4:00 PM yesterday, it was not posted……therefore, the stuff on the agenda was illegal………..they actually threw in the KAWAIAHAO Church issues….

hi Kaohi,

Think we’ll have to pick up some of the intense discussions offline…….

Cousin Eric is planning a show for us…….will keep in touch about that, and he’ll be contacting Tane as well.

Cousin Eric and I did a show on OLELO – TV umpteen years ago called THE TRUE CEDED LAND OWNERS…. the script became a book with the same title………..he does loads of editorials in the newspapers too……..
and has funny ideas on how to repopulate the Hawaiians/aboriginal Hawaiians and admits he likes surfing too………….told him you mean you like dry land surfing and ocean surfing? we all laughed because he said yeah, “both”……lol! much aloha.

Did you read todays MeWeek, I just pulled it out of my mail box.

Do you think we can stop the UN from 14 points of disaster, and stop them from carving out our common law of “mordern realities with traditional Hawaiian values and writing aloha into our laws” ? MidWeek February 10, 2010.

Embedded are our water and access rights and yes I am concern that someone had convinced the UN to come to Hawaii like Pentagon, NRC and AEC and screw up our environment for Green profits.

I am concern with Depleted Uranium Waste Streaming and RDD/ IND…Class A and their stockholdings that disregard public safety in place of Aloha. Profits over our lives, but why? Why can’t people just understand that DU can never be safe or cleaned up. I’m so upset. Kaohi

hi Kaohi,

having a population of DNA damaged people appears to be the goal of New World Order/One World Order……..

the way i figure it, the NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND program is set in place with minimal expectations… because the goal would be for the child – DNA damaged ones, would only need to learn minimally because they will be the frontline soldiers for a WARMONGERING nation such as the United States who operates as the New World Order/One World Order military………..

there is a concern that such DNA damaged, inept people could eventually be trusted in controlling the Nuclear missile buttons………..and thank God GWBush is no longer there…..but sad to say that OBAMA is assuming the role……..does anyone know which Presidents attended Special Education btw? hmmm……

aloha.

 
p.s. with a nation of DNA damaged people, no one would question the WARS would they?

They understood the play and realized that I care more about nonbully students and really care about our kids that come to school to learn. The HSA is on and every teacher in the DOE are focusing on teaching. So, althoug I didn’t get fired I managed to survive the day.

It’ so sad…I got through the chaos and met some people that are just on it and sum that are not on the track of teaching and learning just plain drama. The people that are caring about our society and teaching are the unsung heros for me each day. Bless their hearts.

hi Kaohi,

When I worked with the DOE as a Special Ed teacher……….couldn’t stand the bully behaviors in the classroom too……

Have noticed that out of fear, the children supported the behavior of the bully ones and were very nervous when the problematic ones were near……..

It took a while to realize that the kids are that way because their DNA’s are messed up (to put it nicely)….

It’s due to their parents faults, their failure to take care of their health (excesses in drugs, drinks….) that had something to do with the kids being the way they were………..

Now, it appears another factor contributes to the irrational behavior of the bullies in Waianae or anyone near the environmental toxins, pollutions contributed by the military such as the DU/depleted uranium, other environmental toxins from the GMO’s, and the rest of the crap that UH – Manoa experiments that continue and are financed by the Federal government today…………agent orange of the past buried in the Ewa Plains – contributed to the environment turning toxic on the Big Island prior to the use in Vietnam, etc………….and all kinds of other experiment ongoing with “funding” by many………..suspect the UN is behind of it because after all, they move to PLUNDER upon Innocents since Day 1 — going after the Japanese with the Nuclear Bombs, etc.

The UN in Hawaii should raise suspicions for all concerned about health, safety, wellness, and the ramifications of their supporting belligerent nations in utilizing Genocide caustics, toxins, poisons, etc.

I give you credit for doing what you do…….because I found my limits and working with DNA damaged children is not for me……….can only support them from afar.

Much Aloha.
 

love them from afar.

That’s exactly how I feel right now!!!! Makaha home of peeea…pee…cocks and the rest of the communities are teenage spikers. I’m probably going to get fired today …because as usual, I will not stand down…!!!! for bullies in my classroom.

I want to tell parents where they can get off using our classroom as a place for babysitting. Raising evil for the good is not what I envisioned for our Nation or anything pertaining to Hawaii. Haiti has chaos and pe….cocks running around, why? And now they are looking for outside help for a natural disaster.

And the UN’s in Hawaii–Why?

So thanks I needed this piece of humor and need to get to work. Much love LOL Kaohi

Amelia,
Under the gun, so to speak.. I can’t believe how we the people of Hawaii are being abused by the NRC and AEC plus the Pentagon how in the world this could be happening right before our eyes.

Things did not add up with the video conferencing and Tad Davis visit to Hawaii. I realized that the rules for NRC are being rewritten and we were pawns in the game. Luckily you weren’t there!

The NRC are waste streaming depleted uranium through their rules, and of course Hawaii is vulnerable for lack of education etc..

About ten years ago, Waianae Coalition, and Representative Mike bought into hook line and sinker the up coming dangerous ideals of making money through “waste stream” I tried to not connect this to the situation here, but it keeps poping up.

Today, I came home from work and started researching this problem. I did not have the citation, so I just did it on probability. Since March 2009 everything has gone nuts on the web over the issue of DU and waste stream and Class A. for RDD and IND.

The stryker brigade cannot go to the continent they have to come here by their NRC rules. Good grief how evil! I’m tired need to work tomorrow. talk later. What I am upset about is their is no way of cleaning up the dam DU and it’s not safe to be around both Plutonium and other type of isotopes in surface dumping. Plus the chem trail it leaves along the highway. much aloha Kaohi

thanks Amelia,

I came across a letter dated March 19 2009 to close for comfort cause in Oct we sent a letter for contentions and standing. It’s about changes in defining DU which is super crazy and tells why NRC is in Hawaii.

We are so dam easy to walk over like ants. Will get back to this posting. Kaohi

IOLANI – no. 276 Part 2

hi Kaohi,

The following important information reveals that Kamehameha III’s heirs exist……..the descendants of his hanai children exists which means that the Crown Lands has legal owners……..and Linda Lingle, et. als., the entity State of Hawaii ARE NOT RELATED TO us…………….which also means the claimed Lease held by the military is INVALID, NULL/VOID, ILLEGAL, A FRAUD, A DECEPTION perpetuated by the criminal wrongdoers/evil doers/ treasonous persons whose descendants perpetuate the CRIMES of the past, etc.








aloha.

p.s. John Young, Isaac Davis descendants, please contact me at hawaiianhistory@gmail.com – mahalo.

It is hoped that many of our kanaka maoli/aboriginal Hawaiians will see that much evidence has been found showing that Kamehameha III’s families exist………..who are not related to the State of Hawaii, those who perpetuate the frauds, criminal activities, including all the Trustees in position using the criminal opportunities to maneuver monies, lands, etc. which does NOT belong to them.

As you may also come to the conclusion that the criminals are very real and operating our Alii funds, assets, disregarding the TRUE bloodlines, you will also realize and conclude that Hawaii in the present State is criminally operating on LIES, criminal deceit, criminal conversions, and supported by the U.S. government since 1893………..the World needs to know this………….Zap these messages out to all of your families, friends, in Hawaii, the U.S. and many more around the World!

And, continue to do your genealogies because we are a genealogy based society……..and don’t let people make you think otherwise………..for some remain mischievous and counter the TRUTH…….
contrary to what some people spew out, not everyone descends from Kamehameha…………as a matter of fact, some descend from his cooks, his servants, including John Ii who was the spitoon carrier and whose families associated with the usurpers………….and what about the Thompsons at KSBE/Kamehameha Schools Bishop Estates?………..ancestors were the hanai of Sanford B. Dole, crime syndicate noted…………and the Lucas family…….ancestors were the ones introducing the Knights of Pythias, Masons/Freemasons in Hawaii in the 1880’s, and who descend from the illegitimate children of Archibald Cleghorn……claiming themselves to be the siblings of Princess Kaiulani having different mothers and the same Mason/Freemason Father……….then there’s Abigail Kawananakoa who’s actually an Ellerbrock…..and Prince Kawananakoa had denied her as being part of his family…….remember that Queen Kapiolani is on record opposing the two Princes filing of a deed to her Estate and our great great grandmother Princess Poomaikelani’s Estate.. the two filed the deed immediately after receiving it contrary to the wishes of Queen Kapiolani…….remember Prince Kuhio did take an out-of-court settlement in his claim (along with his deceased aunt Queen Liliuokalani) and took her Waikiki residence……earlier the Princes had wanted to declare her as being crazy, etc……….know and watch those who perpetuates their ancestors crimes…….note who signed the KU’E Petition, note whose names appears in the PIRATES OF THE PACIFIC: Charles Reed Bishop and Friends list……….discover the TRUTH, dare to CARE and remain part of our neutral, non-violent, friendly nation……..

We were born and raised in an evil setup/neighborhood………….be a Fraudbuster (change ‘GHOSTBUSTER’ to ‘FRAUDBUSTER’ in the video) too………….aloha.

Brief Description

The Gatling gun saw only limited use in the Civil War, (Ben Butler used two around Petersburg and eight on gunboats; Porter acquired one; and Hancock ordered twelve for his I (Veteran) Corps), however, the conflict did test this weapon, perhaps the first successful true machine gun used in warfare. Invented by Dr. Richard Jordan Gatling, the Civil War model served as the precursor of more successful models.
The Gatling gun was a hand-crank-operated weapon with 6 barrels revolving around a central shaft. The cartridges were fed to the gun by gravity through a hopper mounted on the top of the gun. 6 cam-operated bolts alternately wedged, fired, and dropped the bullets, which were contained in steel chambers. Gatling used the 6 barrels to partially cool the gun during firing. Since the gun was capable of firing 600 rounds a minute, each barrel fired 100 rounds per minute.
The gun had a number of problems, however. The bores were tapered, and often the barrels and chambers did not exactly align, affecting accuracy and velocity. The chamber system itself, in which a paper cartridge was contained inside a capped steel chamber, was both expensive and fragile. While the gun showed much promise and fired the standard .58-caliber ammunition, it had so many drawbacks and was so radical in both design and purpose that Gatling was unable to interest the U.S. government. The army purchased none of his guns, but Maj. Gen. Benjamin F. Butler, after a field test, purchased 12 for $1,000 each and two were used on the Petersburg front in 1864 and apparently were considered successful.
In Jan. 1865 Gatling’s improved Model 1865 gun was tested by the Ordnance Department. Among other things, this weapon used rimfire copper-cased cartridges instead of the steel-chambered paper variety. Though this model did not see service, it was adopted officially in 1866. Having at last received government approval, Gatling began to sell his guns throughout the world; they achieved lasting fame in the post-war years.

Background

The revolving bundle of barrels to which Dr. Gatling attached a hopper feed for steel chargers solved many of the problems then plaguing machine gun designers. First, the hopper permitted the sustained fire desired. With sustained fire, as in the Ager or Williams gun, came hazards; expansion from over heating and either jamming, or erosion of the bore. Gatling solved this by adding barrels. The time delay between the firing of succeeding shots in any one barrel, as it revolved about to return to its place before the firing mechanism, was enough to permit some cooling. Originally Gatling conceived of an enclosed barrel group with a cylinder about the barrels to hold cooling materials. This was found to be not necessary and the Gatling guns from first until the brass-jacket Ml883 were exposed barrel models.
It can be answered with some degree of certainty why Gatling invented his gun. That is, in the lives of many other inventors, statements of purpose are often lacking. Some may have invented such-and-such for patriotic motives, to get rich quick, or some other mundane, prosaic reason. Dr. Gatling, independently wealthy at the start of the war, has chosen to set forth his own reasons quite clearly.
In 1877, Gatling lived in Hartford, Connecticut next door to Mrs. Colt, widow of the late Samuel Colt at whose factory the Gatling Gun Company now contracted the manufacture of their guns. Mrs. Colts little niece, Elizabeth Jarvis, was a frequent visitor to the Gatling’s hospitable residence, and Gatling explained to her his beliefs at the time he developed the guns:

Hartford, June 15th, 1877

My Dear Friend.

It may be interesting to you to know how I came to invent the gun which bears my name; I will tell you: In 1861, during the opening events of the war, (residing at that time in Indianapolis, md.,) I witnessed almost daily the departure of troops to the front and the return of the wounded, sick, and dead. The most of the latter lost their lives, not in battle, but by sickness and exposure incident to the service. It occurred to me if I could invent a machine–a gun– which could by its rapidity of fire, enable one man to do as much battle duty as a hundred, that it would, to a great extent, supersede the necessity of large armies, and consequently, exposure to battle and disease be greatly diminished. I thought over the subject and finally this idea took practical form in the invention of the Gatling Gun.

Yours truly,
R.J. Gatling

By the time of Gatling’s elderly years, the story had grown slightly in nobility; as his granddaughter, Mrs. Albert Newcombe, remembers it. “He was a most peace-loving soul, and I remember that his reason for inventing that then-lethal gun, was to make war so horrible that it would end wars.”
But Gatling’s own written words seems to be less glamourous, for in 1864 he touched somewhat on his motives in a letter to President Lincoln. “The arm in question is an invention of no ordinary character,” he wrote from Indianapolis to the President on February 18, 1864. “It is regarded by all who have seen it operate, as the most effective implement of warfare invented during the war, and it is just the thing needed to aid in crushing the present rebellion.” (Emphasis supplied by Dr. Gatling). Taking a swipe at the Ager gun in a postscript, Gatling concluded his appeal to Lincoln to have the gun adopted by the Army with: “I have seen an inferior arm known as the ‘coffee mill gun,’ which I am informed has not given satisfaction in practical tests on the battlefield. I assure you my invention is no ‘coffee mill gun’,–but is entirely a different arm, and is entirely free from the accidents and objections raised against that arm.”
There is in this a hint of the efficiency, the veritable “automation” which Gatling, a mechanical scientist first and always, sought to bring to the battlefront. His first gun was patented November 4, 1862, but was in existence, working well on July 14, 1862. That day, T.A. Morris, A. Ballweg, and D.G. Rose certified t the working of the gun which they had tested at direction of Governor Oliver P. Morton of Indiana. “The discharge can be made with all desirable accuracy as rapidly as 150 times a minute, and may be continued for hours without danger, as we think, from over heating.”

Now, Congress gave a standing order to assume Hawaii….and “not to mention the troops” on January 8, 1893 which was printed in the NEW YORK TIMES January 9, 1893 (article discovered by researcher Shane Lee)….

The U.S. and England were in financial straits and the J.P. Morgan bankers were their representatives in Wall Street, Finances, etc.

Let us look at the President in place during the period and his Vice President:

A Life in Brief Next Section: Life Before the Presidency

Benjamin Harrison was born in 1833 in North Bend, Ohio, to a prominent family that had a legacy of political activism. After all, he was the grandson of the nation’s ninth President, William Henry Harrison. Raised on a farm adjacent to his grandfather’s vast estate, Harrison believed he was destined for greatness.

He was tutored at home and read widely on his own, and he would always be more comfortable in the company of books than with other people. Over time, he developed an effective public speaking style, and he was popular among Civil War veterans because of his service as a Union general. Privately, however, Harrison was a frigid character, so stiff and aloof that he was sometimes referred to as “the human iceberg.”

Political and Military Activism

Harrison graduated from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, near the top of his class and studied law with a prominent firm in Cincinnati. In 1853, one year before he began his own law practice, Harrison married a young woman he had met while still in his teens, Caroline Lavinia Scott. They moved to Indianapolis, Indiana, in 1854. She was outgoing where he was reserved, and she loved celebrations and holidays. Eventually, she would put up the first Christmas tree ever in the White House. As a young lawyer, Harrison quickly became involved in the affairs of the new Republican Party, supporting its first presidential candidate, General John C. Fremont in 1856 and working for Abraham Lincoln in 1860. In 1862, he joined the Seventieth Regiment of the Indiana Volunteers during the Civil War, eventually rising to the rank of brigadier general.

Following the war, Harrison returned to political life. He won the Indiana Republican gubernatorial nomination in 1876 but lost the election. He became an influential party power broker, throwing support behind the successful presidential campaigns of Rutherford B. Hayes and James A. Garfield, and in 1880, he was named to the United States Senate by the Indiana state legislature — senators were not elected by popular vote until 1913. In the Senate, he championed pensions for Civil War veterans, high protective tariffs, a modernized navy, and conservation of western lands — all issues that he would uphold as President. He also broke with his party to oppose an act designed to close America to Chinese immigrants. The Chinese Exclusion Act passed without his support.

In 1887, the Indiana state legislature had come under Democratic control, and it declined to return Harrison to the Senate. A year later, declaring himself a “rejuvenated Republican,” he announced his candidacy for the party’s presidential nomination. He proved to be everyone’s second choice in a field of seven serious candidates. He was nominated on the eighth ballot, and New York banker Levi P. Morton was named as his running mate. The Democrats, meanwhile, nominated the incumbent President Grover Cleveland and Ohio Senator Allen G. Thurman.

It was a relatively polite campaign, with both candidates limiting their appearances and focusing primarily on the tariff and Southern problems rooted in Reconstruction. When the votes were tallied, Cleveland had received the larger number of popular votes, but Harrison had carried the Electoral College, thus giving Harrison the victory in the 1888 election.

Tough and Decisive Actions

Even though all his life he believed that he had been born to do great things, historians have traditionally not ranked Harrison as one of our most distinguished chief executives. Some historians contend that his economic policies may have contributed to the economic depression that struck America after he left office. In particular, Harrison was a protectionist who favored high tariffs. This was exemplified by his nurturing of the McKinley Tariff of 1890, which imposed high import duties to protect American corporations but had the effect of increasing prices — a stand that would cost him heavily among the voters. Harrison lobbied successfully for the passage of the Sherman Silver Purchase Act of 1890, which required that silver be used in federal coinage, a concession to the western silver interests. However, this plan was badly conceived and nearly depleted the U.S. Treasury of its gold reserves.

On the other hand, Harrison advocated the conservation of forest reserves, and he embarked on an adventurous foreign policy that included U.S. expansion in the Pacific and the building of a canal across Central America. He also supported the landmark Sherman Antitrust Act, the first bill ever to attempt to limit the power of America’s giant corporations. In the area of civil rights for African Americans, Harrison endorsed two bills designed to prevent southern states from denying African Americans the vote, and he appointed the great and eloquent former slave Frederick Douglass as minister to Haiti. Recent assessments of Harrison’s accomplishments give him more credit for his vision and convictions.

On the international front, Harrison was the most active President since Abraham Lincoln. He convened the first Pan-American Conference in 1889. He negotiated an American protectorate over the Samoan Islands, attempted to annex Hawaii, and continued the work of modernizing and expanding the United States Navy into a world-class fleet. He moved quickly and decisively where American interests were threatened, taking the nation to the brink of war with Chile over an assault on American sailors and standing firm against Britain and Canada to protect the overharvesting of fur seals in the Bering Sea. Perhaps most importantly, he saw trade as an essential part of the nation’s foreign policy and negotiated a number of important reciprocal trade agreements that set the pattern for American trade policy in the twentieth century.

When Harrison lost his bid for reelection in 1892 to Grover Cleveland, he had himself partly to blame. He had frozen out many of those who should have been most active in his support, and his own party was lukewarm toward him. Additionally, midway through this second election, near the end of Harrison’s term, his wife, Caroline, died of tuberculosis. Her illness and eventual death greatly distracted him, which accounts in part for the magnitude of his defeat. In 1892, the voters handed Cleveland the most decisive presidential victory in twenty years. Harrison told his family he felt as though he had been freed from prison.

In 1896, Benjamin Harrison married his deceased wife’s niece, Mary Lord Dimmick, a widow nearly thirty years his junior. He remained active in public life until his death from pneumonia on March 13, 1901. His activism and willingness to wave a big stick in international affairs inspired Theodore Roosevelt, and years later, the American writer Henry Adams called Harrison the best President since Lincoln. Whether he deserved that high praise or not, there is little doubt that his presidency deserves the reconsideration many historians are giving it.

Levi P. Morton
Levi Parsons Morton was born on May 16, 1824, in Shoreham, Vermont. His father was a Congregational minister who was unable to afford a university education for his son. Levi’s hard work and dedication led him to leave his common school at the age of 14, traveling to New Hampshire to work as a clerk at a local general store. He spent two years at the store before moving to teach at the Boscawen common school.

In 1842, Morton assumed another general store clerkship, rising to the position of manager while diligently saving his earnings. By the time he was 21 years old, he was able to purchase the store from its primary creditor. After earning a small fortune, he joined the James M. Beebe and Company dry goods firm, where he became a partner in the firm and opened an office in New York on his own. The business prospered until the outbreak of the Civil War, when it faced bankruptcy due to its inability to collect debts from Southern clients. Morton was able to revive the failing company and repay the earlier debts.

After founding his own banking house in 1863, Morton began establishing friendships with powerful political figures, such as President Ulysses Grant. Morton also cultivated connections with Senators Roscoe Conkling and Thomas Platt of New York, both of whom were active in the Republican Party machinery. Morton used his growing influence to run for a seat in the House of Representatives in 1876. He lost by a slim margin but made a second attempt in 1878. Divisions within the Democratic Party and his popular rescue of a Republican newspaper helped him win the election easily. During his brief tenure in the House, Morton served on the Committee on Foreign Affairs and was a vocal proponent of the gold standard. He remained a consistent advocate of the gold standard throughout his political career.

After Morton served on the Republican Party’s national finance committee in 1880, President-elect James A. Garfield looked to him to fill the vice presidency in order to satisfy the interests of the New York party machine. Roscoe Conkling, however, was not satisfied, and he advised Morton to turn down the offer because he did not think Garfield could win the election. When Garfield won, Morton sought the position of secretary of Treasury, but Garfield questioned the legitimacy of giving the position to a banker. Garfield instead appointed Morton minister to France, and Morton resigned his House seat in 1881 to accept the post. By the time he sailed for France, however, President Garfield had been assassinated, and Chester A. Arthur had become President.

While in France, Morton’s main accomplishment was achieving stronger legal rights for American businesses operating in France. On July 4, 1884, he formally accepted the Statue of Liberty from Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi and arranged for its shipment to New York. He returned to the United States soon after, raising funds for the presidential election, which the Republicans lost. He then made two unsuccessful attempts to win a seat in the U.S. Senate. In 1888, Republican presidential candidate, Benjamin Harrison, selected Morton as his vice presidential candidate. Harrison defeated Grover Cleveland 233 to 168 in the electoral college despite losing the popular vote by 90,000 votes.

Vice President Morton was best known for his conflict resolution in the Senate. As the presiding officer, he was dedicated to working out problems and forging compromise, even when this meant acting against the wishes of his own party. He angered many members of the Republican Party when he refused to end the Democratic filibuster of the Force Bill, which would have mandated cooperation from election officials to allow African Americans to vote. Although Morton was well regarded in the Senate and willing to accept a second term as vice president, Harrison decided to choose a new vice presidential candidate for his unsuccessful reelection attempt in 1892. In 1894, Morton was elected governor of New York, and he was instrumental in creating Greater New York City, merging New York City and Brooklyn. He briefly sought the presidential nomination in 1896, but William McKinley outmaneuvered him. Afterwards, Morton decided not to run for a second term as governor, preferring instead to retire back to the world of finance, creating the Morton Trust Company in 1897, which was subsequently merged with J.P. Morgan’s Fifth Avenue Trust. Levi Morton died on his 96th birthday on May 16, 1920.

Let us look at another character in the plans to dethrone our Queen:

Tracy, Benjamin F. (1830¨C1915), soldier, jurist, secretary of the navy.A small©\town lawyer and Republican politician from Tioga County, New York, Tracy served in the state legislature before raising and commanding troops in the Civil War. He received a Medal of Honor (1897) for gallantry at the Battle of the Wilderness despite subsequent controversial administration of the Elmira, New York, prison camp. Elmira, with its prisoner death rate of 25 percent, held the distinction of being the worst Union prison, although more as a result of War Department policy and bureaucracy than Tracy’s management. Moving to Brooklyn in 1865, he served as federal district attorney from 1866 to 1873, and chief justice of the state court of appeals in 1881 and 1882. Tracy’s major contribution to national security came as secretary of the navy (1889¨C93) during Benjamin Harrison’s presidency.

Tracy publicly championed Alfred T. Mahan’s doctrine of seapower. He launched the navy upon battle fleet construction in support of that doctrine, as well as introducing a prototype military©\industrial complex through close relationships between government and the steel industry. He encouraged technology transfer from Europe, and shrewdly negotiated with Congress for increased naval budgets. He modernized operational planning through establishment of a policy board, organized the first tactical squadron of evolution for fleet maneuver training, and abolished the spoils system in navy yards in order to reform the shore establishment. His ventures in overseas naval base acquisitions in Samoa, Haiti, and Santo Domingo, as well as his response to revolutions in Chile and Hawaii, proved more controversial than successful. Tracy’s active retirement included service in the boundary dispute over British Guiana and chairman of the greater New York Charter Commission in 1897.

This is the background of use of the gatling gun, an American President who was an American Civil War general faced with a depression, no financial backing for our House of Nobles denied them loans…………the BANKERS were certainly a part of it—-the VEHICLES being the President and banker Vice President Morton who was an expert in international transfers.

So, this is what happened to the Hawaiian Kingdom’s monies……..with the help of PIRATES OF THE PACIFIC: Charles Reed Bishop and Friends that is………….


******************
*Benjamin Tracy helped plan the criminal dethronement of our Queen in 1893. He was part of Benjamin Harrison’s cabinet. He met with Lorrin Thurston, et. als. in MAKUA, WAIANAE, OAHU to set up the plans in 1892.

MAKUA is one of the areas where the military seeks to destroy…….along with our peaceful, neutral non violent kanaka maoli/aboriginal Hawaiians who maintain /defend our neutral non-violent, friendly nation………..SCHOFIELD, and POHAKULOA are the other primary targets.

http://www.encyclopedia.com/doc/1O126-MahanAlfredT.html”/&gt;

Mahan, Alfred T. (1840¨C1914), naval officer and theorist.Born to Mary Okill and Dennis Hart Mahan, the latter a professor of civil and military engineering at West Point, Mahan became a career naval officer. He also became a historian and strategic analyst upon his appointment to the new Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island, in 1885. Over the following quarter century, he wrote some of the most influential works on history and strategy ever produced.

Mahan’s studies range widely, incorporating innovative and resourceful historical research and analysis with the perceived strategic and political needs of his day. Though his writings were long ago distilled into dogma from which U.S. naval doctrine has frequently been derived, Mahan himself aimed for accuracy and insight as much as for political or strategic influence. In fact, by the 1906 all©\big©\gun battleship controversies, Mahan had already been outpaced by enthusiasts willing to go even further in defense of these behemoths of concentrated fire.
Much of Mahan’s forty©\year naval career passed with barely a hint of his future influence. Prickly young Mahan completed two years at Columbia College before entering the U.S. Naval Academy’s Class of 1859. His Civil War service was limited to blockade duty except for a few hours of combat during the assault on Port Royal. In successive postwar assignments, he rose slowly through the ranks without distinction. Most of his cruises were on the remote Pacific or Asiatic Squadrons, reinforcing his alienated nature and encouraging his chauvinistic views toward the peoples of the Pacific Basin. His High Church Episcopal beliefs aggravated the disdain he felt for most people¡ªnaval officers, sailors, and foreigners alike.

Mahan’s most famous and important work¡ªThe Influence of Sea Power upon History, 1660¨C1783¡ªfirst published in 1890, suggests the main thrust of his historical efforts. From 1885 to 1893 he was assigned to the Naval War College, briefly as a professor and soon as president of the fledgling institution. In the years before his retirement in 1896, he prepared his most influential studies. Originally, these were designed for his midlevel officer students. They quickly lost their heuristic value, becoming instead primers of international relations, force, and diplomacy. Over the course of a long second career, Mahan produced twenty©\one books, including eleven collections of essays, two naval biographies, two memoirs, and the famous Influence series that examined international history from 1660 to 1815. His histories emphasized the persistent nature of international conflict, particularly between great powers competing for access to trade and resources. His religion, research, and theorizing, as well as his experiences at the First Hague Conference for limiting warfare (1899), led him to believe that diplomacy was best engaged in after successful conclusion of the battle. For Mahan, international relations hinged on power projection. In the modern era, this was best exercised by navies.

Mahan identified three critical elements of seapower: (1) weapons of war, primarily battleships and their supply bases; (2) a near monopoly of seaborne commerce from which to draw wealth, manpower, and supplies; and (3) a string of colonies to support both of the above. His theories, however, rested on two serious fallacies. First, his overreliance upon the notion of concentrating forces falsely denied the importance of coastal defense, and undervalued commerce raiding. These assumptions forced strategists to search for a decisive, war©\winning battle, often in vain. Second, he overstated the strategic benefits of controlling seaborne commerce and colonies. Whereas in peacetime these components of empire frequently contributed to wealth and consequently to long©\term strength, in war they often proved to be liabilities. Mahan’s timeless principles, as enacted along the lines of late©\nineteenth©\century navalism, had the effect of turning America’s strategic vision of itself on its side; instead of remaining an unassailable continental power with maritime reach, it became an overstretched maritime power with global vulnerabilities.

From 1896 until his death, Mahan lived in New York City and at Quogue on Long Island with his wife and unmarried daughters. Though the value of his writings continues to be debated, of their influence on the navies of the United States and other countries there can be no doubt.

Conclusion:

The Gatling Gun according to Weak a Pedia:

An 1876 Gatling gun preserved at Fort Laramie National Historic SiteThe Gatling gun is one of the best known early rapid-fire weapons and a forerunner of the modern machine gun. Its first combat usage, and the battlefield role it is most well-known for, was its use by the Union forces during the American Civil War in the 1860s. Later it was also famously used in the assault on San Juan Hill during the Spanish-American War.[1]

Developed following the 1851 invention of the mitrailleuse by the Belgian Army, the Gatling gun was originally designed by the American inventor Dr. Richard J. Gatling in 1861 and patented in 1862.[2] He wrote that he created it to reduce the size of armies and so reduce the number of deaths by combat and disease.[3]

Although the first Gatling gun was capable of firing continuously, it required a person to crank it; therefore it was not a true automatic weapon. The Maxim gun, invented in 1884, was the first true fully automatic weapon, making use of the fired projectile’s recoil force to reload the weapon. Nonetheless, the Gatling gun represented a huge leap in firearm technology. Prior to the Gatling gun, the only rapid-fire firearms available to militaries were mass-firing volley weapons as the mitrailleuse or grapeshot (as fired from cannons, similar to shotguns). And though rate of fire was increased by firing multiple projectiles simultaneously, these weapons still needed to be reloaded after each discharge, which for multi-barrel systems like the mitrailleuse was quite cumbersome and extremely time-consuming, thus negating their high rate of fire per discharge and making them impractical for use on the battlefield. In comparison, the Gatling gun offered a rapid continuous rate of fire without needing to manually reload.

The gun’s operation centered around a cyclic multi-barrel design which facilitated cooling and synchronized the firing/reloading sequence. Each barrel fired a single shot when it reached a certain point in the cycle, after which it ejected the spent cartridge, loaded a new round, and in the process, cooled down somewhat. This configuration allowed higher rates of fire to be achieved without the barrel overheating. Some time later, Gatling-type weapons were invented that diverted a fraction of the gas pressure from the chamber to turn the barrels. Later still, electric motors supplied external power to operate the Gatling gun.

[edit] History

Patent drawing for R.J. Gatling’s Battery Gun, 9 May 1865.The original Gatling gun was a field weapon, which used multiple rotating barrels turned by a hand crank, and firing loose (no links or belt) metal cartridge ammunition using a gravity feed system from a hopper. The Gatling gun’s innovation lay neither in the rotating mechanism (featured by many revolvers of the day)[clarification needed]| nor the use of multiple barrels to limit overheating (used by the mitrailleuse gun); rather, the innovation was the gravity feed reloading mechanism, which allowed unskilled operators to achieve a relatively high rate of fire of 200 rounds per minute.[2]

The Gatling gun was first used in warfare during the American Civil War. The gun was not accepted by the Union Army until 1866, but a “sales engineer” of the manufacturing company demonstrated it in combat.[4] Admiral Astete of the Peruvian navy took with him from the US dozens of Gatling guns to Peru in December of 1879 during the Peru-Chile’s “saltpeter war”. Gatling guns were use by the Peruvian navy and army, specially in the “battle of Tacna” (May 1880) and the battle of “San juan”(January 1881) against the Chilean army invaders. Lieutenant A.L. Howard of the Connecticut National Guard had an interest in the company manufacturing Gatling guns, and took a personally-owned Gatling gun to Saskatchewan in Canada in 1885 for use with the Canadian military against the M¨¦tis during Louis Riel’s North-West Rebellion.[4]

Early multi-barrel guns were approximately the size and weight of artillery pieces, and were often perceived as a replacement for cannon firing grapeshot or cannister shot.[4] Unlike earlier weapons such as the Mitrailleuse which required manual reloading, the Gatling gun was more reliable, easier to operate, and had a higher firing rate. The large wheels required to move these guns around required a high firing position which increased the vulnerability of their crews.[4] Sustained firing of gunpowder cartridges generated a cloud of smoke making concealment impossible until Smokeless powder became available in the late 19th century.[5] When fighting troops of industrialized nations, Gatling guns could be targeted by artillery they could not reach and their crews could be targeted by snipers they could not see.[4]

The Gatling gun was used most successfully to expand European colonial empires by killing warriors of non-industrialized societies including the Matabele, the Zulu, the Bedouins, and the Mahdists.[4] Imperial Russia purchased 400 Gatling guns and used them against Turcoman cavalry and other nomads of central Asia.[6] The Royal Navy used Gatling guns against the Egyptians at Alexandria in 1882.[5]

Gatling guns were used by the US side during the Spanish-American War, most notably during the battle of San Juan Hill.[7]

[edit] Basic design of the original gun

A British 1865 Gatling gun at Firepower – The Royal Artillery MuseumThe Gatling gun was hand-crank operated with six barrels revolving around a central shaft, similar to the Puckle Gun. Early models had a fibrous matting stuffed in among the barrels which could be soaked with water to cool the barrels down. Later models eliminated the matting-filled barrels as being counterproductive. The ammunition was initially a steel cylinder charged with black powder and primed with a percussion cap, because self-contained brass cartridges had not yet been fully developed and become available. The shells were gravity-fed into the breech through a hopper or stick magazine on top of the gun. Each barrel had its own firing mechanism. After 1861, new brass cartridges similar to modern cartridges replaced the paper cartridge, but Gatling did not switch to them immediately.

The model of 1881 was designed to use the ‘Bruce’-style feed system (U.S. Patents 247,158 and 343,532) that accepted two rows of .45/70 cartridges. While one row was being fed into the gun, the other could be reloaded, thus allowing sustained fire. The final gun required four operators. By 1876 the Gatling gun had a theoretical rate of fire of 1,200 rounds per minute, although 400 rounds per minute was more readily achievable in combat.

Each barrel fires once per revolution at about the same position. The barrels, a carrier, and a lock cylinder were separate and all mounted on a solid plate revolving around a central shaft, mounted on an oblong fixed frame. The carrier was grooved and the lock cylinder was drilled with holes corresponding to the barrels. Each barrel had a single lock, working in the lock cylinder on a line with the barrel. The lock cylinder was encased and joined to the frame. The casing was partitioned, and through this opening the barrel shaft was journaled. In front of the casing was a cam with spiral surfaces. The cam imparted a reciprocating motion to the locks when the gun rotated. Also in the casing was a cocking ring with projections to cock and fire the gun.

Turning the crank rotated the shaft. Cartridges, held in a hopper, dropped individually into the grooves of the carrier. The lock was simultaneously forced by the cam to move forward and load the cartridge, and when the cam was at its highest point, the cocking ring freed the lock and fired the cartridge. After the cartridge was fired the continuing action of the cam drew back the lock bringing with it the spent cartridge which then dropped to the ground.

The grouped barrel concept had been explored by inventors since the 18th century, but poor engineering and the lack of a unitary cartridge made previous designs unsuccessful. The initial Gatling gun design used self-contained, reloadable steel cylinders with a chamber holding a ball and black-powder charge, and a percussion cap on one end. As the barrels rotated, these steel cylinders dropped into place, were fired, and were then ejected from the gun. The innovative features of the Gatling gun were its independent firing mechanism for each barrel and the simultaneous action of the locks, barrels, carrier and breech.

The smallest caliber gun also had a Broadwell drum feed in place of the curved magazine of the other guns. The drum, named after L. W. Broadwell, an agent for Gatling’s company, comprised twenty stick magazines arranged around a central axis, like the spokes of a wheel, each holding twenty cartridges with the bullet noses oriented toward the central axis. This significant invention does not appear to have been patented separately, and may have been included in the April 9, 1872 patent, U.S. 125,563; a post and base, apparently for mounting a Broadwell drum, is visible in Figure 13 of U.S. 125,563. As each magazine emptied, the drum was manually rotated to bring a new magazine into use until all 400 rounds had been fired.

[edit] Modern Gatling-style guns

The GAU-8 Gatling gun of an A-10 Thunderbolt II at Osan Air Base, South Korea.After Gatling guns were replaced by lighter, cheaper blowback style weapons, the approach of using multiple rotating barrels fell into disuse for many decades. However, Gatling gun-style weapons made a return in the 1940¨C50s, when weapons with very high rates of fire were needed in military aircraft. For these modern weapons, electric motors are used to rotate the barrel, although systems that derive power from their ammunition do exist such as the GShG-7.62 machine gun and GSh-6-23, which uses a gas-operated drive system.

US Special warfare combatant-craft crewmen use a Gatling gun to lay down suppressing fire during a practice “hot” extraction of forces on a beach.One of the main reasons for the resurgence of the Gatling gun-style design is the weapon’s tolerance for continuous high rates of fire. For example, if 500 rounds were fired per minute from a conventional single-barrel weapon, this would likely result in the barrel overheating (distorting in extreme cases) or a weapon jam. In contrast, a five-barreled Gatling gun-style weapon firing 500 rounds per minute, only fires 100 rounds per barrel per minute, an acceptable rate of fire. Ultimately the limiting factor is the rate at which loading and extraction can occur. In a single barrel design these tasks must alternate, a multiple barrel design on the other hand lets them occur simultaneously, with different barrels at different points in the cycle. Their high rate of fire also makes them useful in systems that have little time to engage their targets, such as CIWS which defend against fast-moving anti-ship missiles.

The M61 Vulcan 20 mm cannon is the most prolific member of a family of weapons designed by General Electric and currently manufactured by General Dynamics. It is a six-barreled rotary cannon capable of more than 6,000 rounds per minute. Similar systems are available ranging from 5.56 mm to 30 mm (there was even a 37 mm Gatling on the prototype T249 Vigilante AA platform); the rate-of-fire being somewhat inversely-proportional to the size and mass of the ammunition (which also determines the size and mass of the barrels). Another Gatling design well-known among aviation enthusiasts is the GAU-8 Avenger 30 mm cannon, carried on the A-10 Thunderbolt II (Warthog) attack aircraft, a heavily-armored close air-support aircraft. It is a seven-barreled cannon designed for tank-killing and is currently the largest bore Gatling weapon active in the U.S. arsenal.

During the Vietnam War, the 7.62 mm caliber M134 Minigun was created as a helicopter weapon. Able to fire 6,000 rounds per minute from a 4,000-round linked belt, the Minigun proved to be one of the most effective non-explosive projectile weapons ever built and is still used in helicopters today. They are also used on USAF AC-47, AC-119 and Lockheed AC-130 gunships, their original high-capacity cargo airframes able to house the items needed for sustained operation. With sophisticated navigation and target identification tools, Miniguns can be used effectively even against concealed targets. The crew’s ability to concentrate the Gatling’s fire very tightly produces the appearance of the ‘Red Tornado’[8] from the light of the tracers, as the gun platform circles a target at night.

*********************************
So, the gatling gun was one of the major reasons of duress on our Queen and people who maintained a neutral, non violent, friendly status then and today.

Under international laws, the U.S. along with England did breach the Law of Nations along with the bankers………..being totally illegal, everyone should support the former documented “under ground” Kingdom of Hawaii which exists amidst the Pirates, racketeers, criminal activists, treasonous people criminally sitting on what is not theirs….. yes, indeed the entity State of Hawaii is truly a FAKE STATE!

aloha.

“SUMMARY: The Preparedness Directorate of the Department of Homeland
Security (DHS) is issuing guidance entitled, “Application of
Protective Action Guides for Radiological Dispersal Devices (RDD) and
Improvised Nuclear Device (IND) Incidents” for Federal agencies, and
as appropriate, State and local governments, emergency responders, and
the general public who may find it useful in planning and responding to
an RDD or IND incident. The guidance recommends “protective action
guides” (PAGs) to support decisions about actions that may need to be
taken to protect the public when responding to or recovering from an
RDD or IND incident. It also outlines a process to implement the
recommendations and discusses operational guidelines that may be useful
in the implementation of the PAGs. The full text of the document is
included in this Notice. This guidance is provided for interim use and
will be revised based on comments received. The Preparedness
Directorate is seeking input on the appropriateness, implementability
and completeness of the guidance.”

I had totally forgotten about this work in progress which I knew about pryor to 911. Hawaii, at that time for first responders was about radiating papayas and what was needed to understand the overall problem should responders needed to put out a fire at the plant. Our children have the same spots on their bodies that papayas have which is shocking to me for now.

I know Leuren Moret went to Japan, I was disappointed in hearing what she had to report, but it was because of my small thinking. I could not expand my attention span to what she was talking about in this particular piece.

I was trying to narrow the scope down as to what is the up todate reasoning between DU and the UN or international thinking. From what I got in my research it’s an opinion.

http://www.eenews.net/public/25/10229/features/documents/2009/03/20…

I feel very uneasy about the UN and it’s visitation to Richardson Law School.

Here are the following reasons:

Judge Richardsons court is a ‘natural court’
We have a common law that gives water rights to native Hawaiians.
as well as gathering rights because of the Hawaiian Kingdom laws.

Add on the pile of such we are talking about a definition of DU that’s diluted or ignored if and when the thought processes reaches the general public or the moral authority.

thanks a bunch for letting me process this mess on your forum. I was a bit battered this morning by someone on this forum on my email. Kaohi

hi Kaohi,

It appears that we will need to call/notify all nations that the Law of Nations is back in place along with the Kingdom of Hawaii. This could be done with some of the other Monarchy, neutral nations existing during the period.

Since 1893, the breach made by the U.S………the U.S. , England, and the bankers formed the other international organizations which led up to the organizations which departed/became contrary to the Law of Nations……..which is where the visitor comes from.

The United Nations are aligned to plunder on innocent nations and divvy up the assets:

See the setup of the United Nations thru their Charter http://www1.umn.edu/humanrts/instree/chapter1.html :

Charter of the United Nations
Chapter I

Purposes and Principles

——————————————————————————–

Article 1
The Purposes of the United Nations are:

1. To maintain international peace and security, and to that end: to take effective collective measures for the prevention and removal of threats to the peace, and for the suppression of acts of aggression or other breaches of the peace, and to bring about by peaceful means, and in conformity with the principles of justice and international law, adjustment or settlement of international disputes or situations which might lead to a breach of the peace;

2. To develop friendly relations among nations based on respect for the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples, and to take other appropriate measures to strengthen universal peace;

3. To achieve international cooperation in solving international problems of an economic, social, cultural, or humanitarian character, and in promoting and encouraging respect for human rights and for fundamental freedoms for all without distinction as to race, sex, language, or religion; and

4. To be a center for harmonizing the actions of nations in the attainment of these common ends.

Article 2
The Organization and its Members, in pursuit of the Purposes stated in Article 1, shall act in accordance with the following Principles.

1. The Organization is based on the principle of the sovereign equality of all its Members.

2. All Members, in order to ensure to all of them the rights and benefits resulting from membership, shall fulfill in good faith the obligations assumed by them in accordance with the present Charter.

3. All Members shall settle their international disputes by peaceful means in such a manner that international peace and security, and justice, are not endangered.

4. All Members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state, or in any other manner inconsistent with the Purposes of the United Nations.

5. All Members shall give the United Nations every assistance in any action it takes in accordance with the present Charter, and shall refrain from giving assistance to any state against which the United Nations is taking preventive or enforcement action.

6. The Organization shall ensure that states which are not Members of the United Nations act in accordance with these Principles so far as may be necessary for the maintenance of international peace and security.

7. Nothing contained in the present Charter shall authorize the United Nations to intervene in matters which are essentially within the domestic jurisdiction of any state or shall require the Members to submit such matters to settlement under the present Charter; but this principle shall not prejudice the application of enforcement measures under Chapter VII.

U.S. AIDING THE CORRUPTION MECCA: HAWAII
                 Kingdom of Hawaii Records 2010-001

by Amelia Gora (2010)

 
It appears the U.S. government through Congress are aiding the CRIMINAL MECCA: Hawaii through the Akaka Bill Maneuver.

After the premeditated maneuver by Congress and the military in 1892, the support of conspirator’s (a term updated to terrorists since President Clinton’s administration period), the continued use of propaganda on the World to make it appear that the dethronement of Hawaii’s Queen Liliuokalani was legitimate appears to be the approach to continue a historical crime affecting our aboriginal Hawaiians and all in the World today.

The progressive moves of passing the Akaka Bill’s also known as H.R. 2314 and S. 1011
appears to be worded for the purpose of negating the Apology Law P.L. 103-150 signed by President Clinton, which legally documents the admission of crimes against a neutral, non-violent nation known as the Kingdom of Hawaii which has been documented as having gone “underground”.

Let us look at the Premeditation history as well as the aggressive, imperialistic approach taken by a bankrupt, international law breaking nation, which partnered with England and the bankers, a leadership of corrupt, law- breaking nations and their investors which conjured up the CFR/Council on Foreign Relations which eventually formed the United Nations:

1876 – King Kalakaua signed a Fraud Deed over to two ancestors, Mataio Kekuanaoa and Grace Kamaikui who
had died 8-9 years previously.

The fraud deed is the basis of a claim made by the U.S. government that they own Pearl Harbor (in other
words, the criminal claim did result in hundreds of thousands of Innocent people to die needlessly in the
progressive wars.

Under duress, with a gun to his head, King Kalakaua signed a Constitution prepared by the Americans. The
Constitution was named “the Bayonnet Constitution” by his sister, then Princess Liliuokalani later known as
Queen Liliuokalani.

1878 – U.S. interested in Hawaii as a strategic zone, along with the Samoan Islands, and Aetearoa – the group of
recognized nations known as the Pacific Empire and recognized under the Laws of Nations:

* Americans investing in the 1878 Pacific Cable Company for the purposes of informing the U.S. that Japan
ships were passing the islands. The U.S. was fearful of the Japanese entering San Francisco Bay and that it
would take more than 10 years to get them out.

Reference: VALOR OF IGNORANCE by Homer Lea and parts such as the strategic maps entered in Affidavit/
Lien No. 96-177455 filed on 12/17/96 (281 pages) by Amelia Gora.

1887 – King David Kalakaua’s House of Nobles denied the loan request by the U.S. representative because the
U.S. would not pay back for thousands of years and only small amounts of interest would be paid over time.

1892 – More of the Conspiracies against the Hawaiian nation, the head Queen Liliuokalani found in research:

* Conspiracies, pirating of Alii’s genealogies, wealth, lands recorded by criminal Americans in Hawaii.

* meeting in Makua, Oahu by BF Tracy, a U.S. Representative and Thurston, et. als.

Reference: Bureau of Conveyances Affidavit, Lien No. 96-177455 filed on 12/17/96 (281 pages) by
Amelia Gora

* Thomas Akaka, ancestor of Daniel Akaka – whose name is used for the ‘Akaka Bill’, helped to plan the
dethronement of Queen Liliuokalani with his association, meetings with Dr. Mott Smith, Thurston, et. als.
in Washington, D.C.

Reference: Doctor Mott-Smith’s book; history research

* Hundreds of Masons/Freemasons – those supporting criminal acts to dethrone the Queen, arrived in
the Hawaiian Islands, parading, giving speeches, celebrating a building, and claiming ‘Hawaii to be their
home city’.

* Premeditation of overthrowing Queen Liliuokalani due to U.S. Naval ships docked in Hawaii without
authorization by our neutral, non-violent, friendly nation.

* Premeditation of overthrowing Queen Liliuokalani when the ship BOSTON arrived to replace the other
U.S. naval ship arrived for further orders.

* Congressional orders documented on January 8, 1893 and posted in the New York Times on January 9, 1893
which informed the conspirator’s that the troops would be landed.

Reference: NEW YORK TIMES, January 9, 1893 article PEARL HARBOR COALING STATION – Imperative
Necessity that the United States Take Possession found by researcher Shane Lee.

* January 16, 1893 – “three companies of bluejackets, one of artillery, one of marines, 154 men, and
10 officers; with 14,000 cartridges for rifles and the Gatling gun, 1,900 revolver cartridges, and 174 explosive
shells for the revolving cannon. These forces were landed, on foreign soil, not at the request of the lawful
Government – the Governor of Oahu promptly sent a formal note of protest to Minister Stevens -
representating 88,000 of the population….”

* January 16, 1893 – the Queen, the lawful government, and the subjects were under stress, duress,
usurpation, and coercion.

* January 17, 1893 – Queen Liliuokalani was illegally dethroned by treasonous person, supported by the
U.S. government et. als. (England, and the Morgan bankers who were the investors for the bankrupt nations
in the Wall Street stock markets…..both U.S., England were bankrupt and ill able to treaty due to their
American Civil War investments, etc.).

A legal oppostion was served to the U.S.

* Oppositions to Annexation made by Queen Liliuokalani and her 40,000+ subjects.

Reference:

Signatures of 22,000 subjects found by Noelani Silva.

OPPOSITION to Annexation official documents was only recently found by researcher Kiliwehi Kekumano. It lay hidden away in the National Archives. It is not the same as the one found at the Archives, Honolulu, Oahu.

1898 – War against Spain was deliberately made enncouraged by the Hearst newspapers. Spain did not bomb the MAINE as claimed by the newspapers but due to the ship’s own doing.

Spain’s representative in Hawaii approached Sanford B. Dole’s entity Provisional government turned Republic and asked about the status of neutrality. Dole’s group denied neutrality, and did not align themselved with the Hawaiian government.

Spain lost and gave up the Phillipines, etc.

At France’s, et. als. prompting, the move to assume the Hawaiian Islands were made.

1900 – ORGANIC ACT set up to protect Americans in Hawaii, and disregard the aboriginal Hawaiians/ kanaka
maoli:

1993 – Admission of wrongs made through P.L. 103-150 ‘Apology Law’ signed by U.S. President Clinton.

2010 – AKAKA Bill set up to make corrections on the flaws in the ORGANIC ACT which is the foundation of the U.S. pirating activities in our Hawaiian Islands:

The following came off one of the ” Kingdom of Hawaii” (To date there are 40+ groups calling themselves the Hawaiian government/Hawaiian nation/Hawaiian Kingdom, etc.) website:

Chapter 339.––An Act To provide a government for the Territory of Hawaii.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

Chapter 1. General Provisions.

§ 1. Definitions.

That the phrase “the laws of Hawaii,” as used in this Act without qualifying words, shall mean the constitution and laws of the Republic of Hawaii, in force on the twelfth day of August, eighteen hundred and ninety-eight, at the time of the transfer of the sovereignty of the Hawaiian Islands to the United States of America.
The constitution and statute laws of the Republic of Hawaii then in force, set forth in a compilation made by Sidney M. Ballou under the authority of the legislature, and published in two volumes entitled “Civil Laws” and “Penal Laws,” respectively, and in the Session Laws of the Legislature for the session of eighteen hundred and ninety-eight, are referred to in this Act as “Civil Laws,” “Penal Laws,” and “Session Laws.”

§ 2. Territory of Hawaii.

That the islands acquired by the United States of America under an Act of Congress entitled “Joint resolution to provide for annexing the Hawaiian Islands to the United States,” approved July seventh, eighteen hundred and ninety-eight, shall be known as the Territory of Hawaii.

§ 3. Government of the Territory of Hawaii.

That a Territorial government is hereby established over the said Territory, with its capital at Honolulu, on the island of Oahu.

(editor’s note: is it legal to establish an already internationally recognized nation?)

§ 4. Citizenship.

That all persons who were citizens of the Republic of Hawaii on August twelfth, eighteen hundred and ninety-eight, are hereby declared to be citizens of the United States and citizens of the Territory of Hawaii.

And all citizens of the United States resident in the Hawaiian Islands who were resident there on or since August twelfth, eighteen hundred and ninety-eight and all the citizens of the United States who shall hereafter reside in the Territory of Hawaii for one year shall be citizens of the Territory of Hawaii.

(editor’s note: recognition of aboriginal Hawaiians/kanaka maoli disregarded; therefore looked at as non-citizens……………because the true government went “under ground” that basically means it still exists! and the subjects are still subjects of the true government.)

§ 5. United States Constitution.

That the Constitution, and, except as otherwise provided, all the laws of the United States, including laws carrying general appropriations, which are not locally inapplicable, shall have the same force and effect within the said Territory as elsewhere in the United States; Provided, That sections 1841 to 1891, inclusive, 1910 and 1912, of the Revised Statutes, and the amendments thereto, and an act entitled “An act to prohibit the passage of local or special laws in the Territories of the United States, to limit Territorial indebtedness, and for other purposes,” approved July 30, 1886, and the amendments thereto, shall not apply to Hawaii. Annotations.

(editor’s note: with special applications, this is evidence that Hawaii is truly not part of the U.S.; it only gives the appearance that Hawaii is likened to the U.S. but not/is not.)

§ 6. Laws of Hawaii.

That the laws of Hawaii not inconsistent with the Constitution or laws of the United States or the provisions of this Act shall continue in force, subject to repeal or amendment by the legislature of Hawaii or the Congress of the United States.

************************
Editor’s Notes: only parts of the 1900 Organic Act was commented on; however, the Act is entirely illegal, and the intent of the Akaka Bill is to perpetuate the frauds of those such as Senator A kaka/Akaka, dishonest Akaka et. als. who continues the treasonous activities of his ancestor Thomas Akaka and kowtows to the PIRATES OF THE WORLD through it’s Congress, government imperialistic moves to perpetuate PIRACIES ON THE HIGH SEAS, and disregarding the rules of Laws, breaching International Laws, criminally assuming monies, properties that they legally have NO claims, no rights to.

Queen Liliuokalani did say that if they fail to make corrections, they will fall apart……and Opposition continues in their criminal moves to pass the Akaka Bill also known as H.R. 2314 and S. 1011 and deny the U.S., their entities jurisdiction in, over, under, around our Hawaiian Islands.

Continued Oppositions, Eviction notices, Banning of Depleted Uranium/DU use, etc. is Hawaii is hereby publicly recorded.

Sincerely,
Amelia Gora, a Royal person, one of the descendants of
Kauikeaouli/Kamehameha III’s children/adopted children, one of
the owners of the Crown Lands, etc., a Royal families representative,
Acting Liaison of Foreign Affairs, and a living human being

went internet surfing and found Keanu Sai’s recently downloaded book – 67 pages at http://www.scribd.com/doc/24876483/Legal-and-Political-History-of-t…

a Must read! it’s taken from a military occupation point……….however, piracy(ies) means a whole lot of different things………..in other words, the military becomes a military belligerent occupier, documented pirates rather than his quaint accomodations as a mere military occupier.

aloha.

Keeping in mind my Dad came home to find the military not only on the land that they thought was owned by Lilu, but parked on his mom and dad graves. They left the land eventually, but heavily littered with military garbage.

Yes, there is much sadness to experience once one get past the missionary mentality–much can be learned, not just from my dad–but it’s surroundings. Over the years when I get caught up in political vortexes, I would dance through and visualize how things were way before the greedy missionaries arrived.

The mountains the ocean and in between are all immediate experiences when one learns about space and time.

Washington Place has a gate a place where like with what the documentary would say “she was never really welcomed” but at Maunawili she was cherished by the women and loved.

Hawaiian sexuality and missionary abuses are two distinct sphere, I get to be in a safe zone because of both strengths, thanks to mom, in my up bringing. That safe zone are the natural surroundings, unlike the walls or boxes, that contains our minds.

Need to get back to bed, talk later. Kaohi

Forgot to tell you Ho’ aikane is Lydia’s kids, Rub-a-Dub….Kaohi
I just went through Keanu’s slides–pretty neat. Kaohi
Aloha Amelia.

Shannon just posted this on your forum, it’s interesting because during the video conference I tried to stay away from the effects of DU and stick to the cause which is induced exposure.

“Reported in “The Enemy Within” (1996) by Jay Gould, “The Nevada down winders’ suits were unsuccessful. Despite winning their case in the lower courts, the Appellate Court ruled in favor of the Atomic Energy Commission on the grounds that the US government could not be held responsible. At one point, one of the lawyers for the plaintiffs sent a series of interrogatories to the AEC defense counsel with the following simple question: Who has the responsibility for the safety and welfare of persons and their property near areas of possible fallout? The AEC answered as follows: “It is the responsibility of the heads of families and owners of property to protect their families and their property from possible radioactive fallout.”

In the Navajo creation story, the people were warned
not to touch a yellow substance called “cledge”, to leave it in the ground. “cledge”, now known to be uranium, was from the underworld. The Navajo people had a choice, yellow cledge or yellow corn pollen. The yellow corn pollen posses the positive elements of life, if cledge were to be released from the ground it would bring forth the serpent. The serpent would bring into the world evil, death, and destruction.”

I like to part about cledge and corn, it seems that our farms out here in Waianae should cease in production and as I see it–people need to leave Waianae. And the US should pay for the exiting.

hi Kaohi,

The following important information reveals that Kamehameha III’s heirs exist……..the descendants of his hanai children exists which means that the Crown Lands has legal owners……..and Linda Lingle, et. als., the entity State of Hawaii ARE NOT RELATED TO us…………….which also means the claimed Lease held by the military is INVALID, NULL/VOID, ILLEGAL, A FRAUD, A DECEPTION perpetuated by the criminal wrongdoers/evil doers/ treasonous persons whose descendants perpetuate the CRIMES of the past, etc.

hi Kaohi,

It appears that we will need to call/notify all nations that the Law of Nations is back in place along with the Kingdom of Hawaii. This could be done with some of the other Monarchy, neutral nations existing during the period.

Since 1893, the breach made by the U.S………the U.S. , England, and the bankers formed the other international organizations which led up to the organizations which departed/became contrary to the Law of Nations……..which is where the visitor comes from.

The United Nations are aligned to plunder on innocent nations and divvy up the assets:

See the setup of the United Nations thru their Charter http://www1.umn.edu/humanrts/instree/chapter1.html :

Charter of the United Nations
Chapter I

Purposes and Principles

——————————————————————————–

Article 1
The Purposes of the United Nations are:

1. To maintain international peace and security, and to that end: to take effective collective measures for the prevention and removal of threats to the peace, and for the suppression of acts of aggression or other breaches of the peace, and to bring about by peaceful means, and in conformity with the principles of justice and international law, adjustment or settlement of international disputes or situations which might lead to a breach of the peace;

2. To develop friendly relations among nations based on respect for the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples, and to take other appropriate measures to strengthen universal peace;

3. To achieve international cooperation in solving international problems of an economic, social, cultural, or humanitarian character, and in promoting and encouraging respect for human rights and for fundamental freedoms for all without distinction as to race, sex, language, or religion; and

4. To be a center for harmonizing the actions of nations in the attainment of these common ends.

Article 2
The Organization and its Members, in pursuit of the Purposes stated in Article 1, shall act in accordance with the following Principles.

1. The Organization is based on the principle of the sovereign equality of all its Members.

2. All Members, in order to ensure to all of them the rights and benefits resulting from membership, shall fulfill in good faith the obligations assumed by them in accordance with the present Charter.

3. All Members shall settle their international disputes by peaceful means in such a manner that international peace and security, and justice, are not endangered.

4. All Members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state, or in any other manner inconsistent with the Purposes of the United Nations.

5. All Members shall give the United Nations every assistance in any action it takes in accordance with the present Charter, and shall refrain from giving assistance to any state against which the United Nations is taking preventive or enforcement action.

6. The Organization shall ensure that states which are not Members of the United Nations act in accordance with these Principles so far as may be necessary for the maintenance of international peace and security.

7. Nothing contained in the present Charter shall authorize the United Nations to intervene in matters which are essentially within the domestic jurisdiction of any state or shall require the Members to submit such matters to settlement under the present Charter; but this principle shall not prejudice the application of enforcement measures under Chapter VII.
*********************************
Charter of the United Nations
Chapter XIV

The International Court of Justice

——————————————————————————–

Article 92
The International Court of Justice shall be the principal judicial organ of the United Nations. It shall function in accordance with the annexed Statute which is based upon the Statute of the Permanent Court of International Justice and forms an integral part of the present Charter.

Article 93
1. All Members of the United Nations are ipso facto parties to the Statute of the International Court of Justice.

2. A state which is not a Member of the United Nations may become a party to the Statute of the International Court of Justice on conditions to be determined in each case by the General Assembly upon the recommendation of the Security Council.

Article 94
1. Each Member of the United Nations undertakes to comply with the decision of the International Court of Justice in any case to which it is a party.

2. If any party to a case fails to perform the obligations incumbent upon it under a judgment rendered by the Court, the other party may have recourse to the Security Council, which may, if it deems necessary, make recommendations or decide upon measures to be taken to give effect to the judgment.

Article 95
Nothing in the present Charter shall prevent Members of the United Nations from entrusting the solution of their differences to other tribunals by virtue of agreements already in existence or which may be concluded in the future.

Article 96
1. The General Assembly or the Security Council may request the International Court of Justice to give an advisory opinion on any legal question.

2. Other organs of the United Nations and specialized agencies, which may at any time be so authorized by the General Assembly, may also request advisory opinions of the Court on legal questions arising within the scope of their activities.

——————————————————————————–
The purpose of the United Nations is One World Order/New World Order.

Isn’t it interesting that the person visiting is from Japan, when the group gathered it was to plunder upon Japan’s innocents……thru the use of the Nuclear bombs? Hiroshima and Nagasaki…..

now, a representative from the very nation moves to connect with a neutral, non violent nation who also appears to defend the destructive nation, U.S. and accommodates the criminal activities of DU/ depleted uranium?

I have a book, and did file parts of it in the Affidavit/Lien/Notice No. 96-177455 (281 pages) filed on 12/17/96 which shows the strategic maps and the fear of the Japanese and efforts to lay down cables were made so that the sugar planters/Americans in Hawaii could notify the U.S. government that the Japanese were heading their way.

It is documented that it would take more than 10 years to get the Japanese out of San Francisco Bay, etc.

Due to loans based on LEASE lands, associations by PIRATES OF THE PACIFIC: Charles Reed Bishop and Friends, the Pacific Cable Company was started in 1878………………yes, plans to assume Hawaii was in the works well before dethroning our Queen in 1893!

aloha.

 
“Preservation of our planet” would be an argument for non use of DU/depleted uranium anywhere. But, according to Leuren Moret, the Queen of England has the majority shares of the uranium mines……..

watch and read the comments at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X2Q1DKwPViQ

brindmaster (5 days ago)
The UN has never represented the people of the planet. It was a place where the vast majority of countries could make speeches but all the real decisions were made behind closed doors by a tiny in-bred elite. The UN presided over genocide, war and the deliberate spreading of disease. It will soon run out of money, be dissolved and replaced by an entirely new organization that truly represents the people of the planet earth. Sayonara UN.
********Couldn’t have said it any better………..aloha.

 Aloha kakou,

E ala e!
Never look a gifted horse in the mouth for you may feel sorry for it. And if you are one who believes you deserve anything without deserving it, you are the one they are looking for. 

Especially so, during the off-seasonal holidays like Valentine’s, Mother’s and Father’s. And if you get something for President’s Day, you will be probably buying a bridge in Dubai very shortly.

Subject: Census Jobs as Training

Aloha Kakou,

The census is still looking for people in Hawai‘i. If anyone is
looking for work, this might be a good idea. But not just for the job.
If we learn the process for the census, then we could use this
information to help register all of the Hawaiian Kingdom subjects.

The census pays $12-$23.

Anyone interested?

Mahlao,

what’s funny?  the idea of removing the portraits of the bad guys from ‘positions of honor’ within state government buildings, of course.  and the fact that civic club members passed a reso in support of it.  wouldn’t have happened five years ago.  nowadays the civic clubs are stepping out all over the place.  i like to think we (our club) had a lot to do with these small transformation.  those clubs that have kept silent for a long time, for whatever reason, seem to be bustin’ out.  i noticed this at the last meeting when the body approved keoni agard’s dissenting report on the akaka bill and our reso re support for cultural practice.  some of the ‘old guard’ (some might call them big hitters) tried to stop these issues from moving forward.  it’s great to have a show of hands–people get to see who takes what position.  the invisible become visible.  it’s all good.

Subject: FW: This scam happened in Hawaii

Please see below.  Pass on to family & friends in Hawaii .
Safety Manager,          High School
Hi everyone,

I want to let you all know that Frank and I have been the victims of credit card fraud this week and felt I should warn you all about the clever scam.  It works like this:

Last Wednesday I had a phone call late morning from Express Couriers to ask if I was going to be home as he had a delivery for me. He said he would there in roughly an hour.  He turned up with a beautiful basket of flowers and wine.  I expressed my surprise as I wasn’t expecting anything like this and said I was intrigued to know who was sending me such a lovely gift.  He said he was only delivering the gift and the card was being sent separately (the card has never arrived).  There was a consignment note with the gift.

He went on to explain that because the gift contained alcohol he has to charge the recipient $3.50 as proof that he has actually delivered to an adult, and not left on a door step if the recipient is out, to be stolen or taken by children.  This seemed logical and I offered to get the cash.  He then said that the company required the payment to be by Eftpos (credit card) so he’s not handling cash and everything is properly accounted for.  Frank was there and got his credit card and ‘John’ swiped the card on this small mobile machine that also had a small screen upon which Frank entered his pin number.  A receipt was printed out and given to us.

Between last Thursday and Monday, $4,000 was withdrawn from our credit account at ATM machines in the North Shore and Rotorua area. It appears a dummy credit card was made using the details in the machine and, of course, they had Frank’s pin number.

The Bank has stopped our cards and I’ve been to the Police this morning, where they confirmed that it is a definite scam and many households were hit during the first 3 days of October.

So PLEASE be wary of accepting a gift you’re not expecting, especially if the card is not with it.  We’ve all received gifts like this and would never dream that it could be such a despicable act. Please also let other female friends and relatives know.  Hopefully, these fraudsters have ceased this activity by now but you never know.  I wanted to warn all my friends.

P.S.  I don’t think I’ll ever drink the wine – I’d probably choke on it!

If you do have this happening try to record as much detail as you can, Person¢s description, vehicle driven, license, color,  make, etc.

Sophists for sanctions
 
By Stephen Gowans
 
Tony Hawkins, a professor of economics at the University of Zimbabwe, thinks that Western sanctions on Zimbabwe should be maintained but that their effects “are minimal” and that “their continued existence really plays into the hands of some people in Zanu-PF.”

You would think, then, that Hawkins would favor the lifting of sanctions. After all, why continue to play into the hands of Zanu-PF, if, like Hawkins, you’re opposed to the party, its direction and its program, and the sanctions’ effects are minimal anyway?
 
For decades, supporters of the U.S. economic war on Cuba have lied that a near total U.S. blockade of the island has had little effect on the Cuban economy. On the contrary, they say, the blockade has actually worked against the U.S., by handing Fidel Castro, and now his brother, Raul, a way of diverting attention from their “failed” economic policies. The Castros, they say, blame Cuba’s problems on the blockade and thus evade responsibility for their much larger role in crippling the island’s economy.
 
Yet none of these people has recommended that the blockade be lifted, a measure you would think Cuba-opponents would immediately latch onto for its supposed benefits in making clear to Cubans that socialism, not the U.S. blockade, is the source of their poverty, something that might impel them to fulfill U.S. foreign policy goals by overturning socialism. So, why aren’t these people, if they truly believe what they’re saying, pressing for the blockade to be lifted? Continued at http://gowans.wordpress.com/2010/02/09/sophists-for-sanctions/

I certainly can; it would be a new kind of America where war was no longer such a dominant part of our lives and our national discourse. A nation that could use its great wealth for positive developments such as better systems of education, universal health care, creation of alternates to fossil fuels, improving our infrastructure, and providing a safer environment for our society.

  On Monday, Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei vowed to deliver a “punch in the mouth” to those who might exercise their right to peaceful dissent today during Iran’s national holiday. But a “punch” is a far cry from the two executions recently carried out for the same reasons.
Don’t let Iran execute any more people for expressing their dissenting views!
 
 
         
Dear amelia,

Today during Iran’s Victory of the Revolution Day, when words like “revolution”, “independence” and “freedom” are on everyone’s lips, fears of torture, repression and death still remain.

The shock is still very much palpable over the two horrific hangings that took place in Iran just weeks ago. The two hanged men became the “fall guys” for the post-Presidential election violence that consumed the streets of Iran last summer. This happened despite the fact that the accused men were nowhere near the widespread demonstrationsthey were already in prison!

Now fear mounts again that 9 more men will hang based on similarly outrageous charges. Help focus Iran’s attention on its real problem. Urge Iran to stop the executions!

Today as Iranians pour onto the streets once again by the thousands we can’t help but fear that their fate may be the same. They are Iranian citizens who gather to peacefully protest and demonstrate against the actions of their own government. But they are corralled like cattle, beaten back with sticks and even dragged away to cages.

But even Iran must answer to someone for these human rights abuses. On Monday, the United Nations Human Rights Council will conduct an in-depth review of Iran’s human rights record and recommend concrete actions to improve its standing. Even Iran, known to be strongly resistant to external parties investigating these issues, has called the Council the most competent body in dealing with human rights.

Amnesty’s researchers have recommended to the Council that they include the following points in their final review of Iran’s human rights record:

  • Halt all executions of juvenile offenders
  • End the use of indefinite prison sentences, torture and other forms of ill-treatment in detention
  • Prohibit the executive use of excessive force by riot police and Basij paramilitaries

Most importantly, we ask that Iranian authorities finally allow independent investigators into the country to observe and report on torture and other human rights abuses directly.

To date, we’ve relied on the brave reporting being done by citizens in Iran to give us this information. Despite the best efforts of their government to clamp down on all media and communications carrying these stories – even the most recent banning of Google’s email service, Gmail – they manage to break through.

We especially can’t shake the eerie memory of Neda, a young woman whose brutal death during last summer’s demonstrations was captured on video and shared on YouTube – stunning and saddening viewers by the millions.

As we expected, once again YouTube videos, messages on Twitter, and blogs from those participating in today’s demonstrations are surfacing – telling the true stories of what’s happening on the streets of Iran.

Remember that today we’re counting on you to help us raise the voice of those calling for freedom and justice in Iran by showing your support online.

All your messages, blogs, videos and emails are helping to build a stronger case against Iran’s human rights record. And Iran will have to answer for it one day very soon.

Thank you for standing with us and the people of Iran,

Elise Auerbach, Christoph Koettl and the rest of the Iran crisis response team

Just for Laffs

Amidst All the Serious Business………Howz About some HUMOR?

 

Found this posted at the English forums:

Peed my pants laughing!

  I took my dad to the mall the other day to buy some new shoes
(he is 66).
 
 We decided to grab a bite at the food court.
 
I noticed he was watching a teenager sitting next to him.
 
 The teenager had spiked hair in all different colours – green, red, orange, and blue. My dad kept staring at him.
 
 The teenager kept looking and would find my dad staring everytime.
When the teenager had had enough, he sarcastically asked: “What’s the matter old man, never done anything wild in your life?”
 
 Knowing my Dad, I quickly swallowed my food so that I would not choke on his response; I knew he would have
a good one!
 
 In classic style he responded without batting an eyelid
 “Got stoned once and f**ked a peacock. I was just wondering if you were my son.”

 – Jason

CLAIMING YOUR ANCESTORS LANDS — ALLODIAL ISSUES…..

  The following article was posted in the IOLANI – The Royal Hawk.

  This message is being sent again because the EXHIBIT section was not covered.

  The legal documents should contain the following in the following order:

  1)  Cover page (covers ancestors name, RP/Royal Patent Number, LCA/ Land Commission Award number

  2)  Affidavit/Certification (family genealogies)

  3)  Heirs and Assigns page

  4) EXHIBITS (Write EXHIBITS in top right hand corner):
     a.   RP/Royal Patent LCA/Land Commission Award brief history (shows names of deceased owners and successors)
     b.  Survey Notes (obtain from the Archives, Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii) which shows the map, dimensions of the land(s).  (ask the Archivist how to obtain your survey notes….. also ask how to look at the books available documenting awards from the Great Mahele/ Kamehameha III period, an extra step to take is to find out the testimonies in regards to the parcel(s)/lands belonging to your families.

  5)  JURAT, NOTARY page

  6)  Xerox two (2) or more sets.  The notary usually wants to do only two (2) for a set.  If more copies are needed for family members, you could make copies after the notary signs the documents, and even after the filing is completed.

  7)  obtain a notary signature from your Credit Union, bank — First Hawaiian Bank has a preferred customer account that you may be able to qualify for……worth it because the cost of a Notary will be nothing/free……….at the Credit Unions and some banks also give free notary signature……cousin paid about $50 a couple of weeks ago —$5 per notary signature.

  8)  take the two (2) sets of documents to the Bureau of Conveyances, Regular System section and pay $25 for a set which covers up to 20 pages.  Any amount of pages over 20 will cost $1 per page.

  9)  The Bureau of Conveyances located on Punchbowl Street is open in the mornings till 3:30 p.m. They do not accept documents later than that time.  (Mondays-Fridays (Holidays closed)).

  aloha and malama pono.

A man visited a donut shop one morning because he had tried some of the raisin cookies from his office and wanted some for himself……….

While waiting in line, he noticed the swinging door was open……..and noticed the baker without a shirt on, cut slices of cookie dough and grabbed two pieces, slapped it on his chest and placed in on the cookie sheet…………this went on until the cookie sheet was filled…………..

the baker then opened a jar of raisins and placed a raisin into each of the impressions………..

The customer was so excited that he complained to the cashier about how unsanitary that was, even though he enjoyed the raisin cookies ……….

 
The cahier heard the complaint and said………..”if you think that’s unsanitary………..how do you think he makes his doughnuts?”

lol.
old joke but funny…….

much aloha.

 
There were babies lined up in heaven and the first was a haole baby, and God gifted him with wings… and said “you’re an angel”……….

 
the second was a haole baby, and God gifted him with wings……..and said “you’re an angel”……..

 
the third baby was a haole baby….the popolo baby said ‘how about me?’ and was told ‘not yet!’, and God gave the haole baby wings……….and said “you’re an angel”…..

 
then the popolo baby’s turn came up….and God gave him wings……..the popolo baby said “ooh, am I an angel now?………..and God said “no, you’s a bat!”

 
cruel but funny lol……can only guess who made up that joke!

aloha.

Yes, let’ go to the movies yeah!!!I like you too.

Hi Kaohi,

found out from Jean earlier today………he said he would attend……will find out more later…..have a relative also who attends the meetings with his friends and most likely will find out info too.

Jean said Van Dyke was pro Akaka………….and the other was pro United Nations, however, the value was that he took on the International laws perspective…………and to some degree that was valuable.

did ask Jean to post a story for the IOLANI if he could…….

aloha.

p.s. Jean said that the Burial Council meeting today was illegal because they did not forewarn everyone about what was going to be heard…….and up until 4:00 PM yesterday, it was not posted……therefore, the stuff on the agenda was illegal………..they actually threw in the KAWAIAHAO Church issues….

hi Kaohi,

Think we’ll have to pick up some of the intense discussions offline…….

Cousin Eric is planning a show for us…….will keep in touch about that, and he’ll be contacting Tane as well.

Cousin Eric and I did a show on OLELO – TV umpteen years ago called THE TRUE CEDED LAND OWNERS…. the script became a book with the same title………..he does loads of editorials in the newspapers too……..
and has funny ideas on how to repopulate the Hawaiians/aboriginal Hawaiians and admits he likes surfing too………….told him you mean you like dry land surfing and ocean surfing? we all laughed because he said yeah, “both”……lol! much aloha.

Did you read todays MeWeek, I just pulled it out of my mail box.

Do you think we can stop the UN from 14 points of disaster, and stop them from carving out our common law of “mordern realities with traditional Hawaiian values and writing aloha into our laws” ? MidWeek February 10, 2010.

Embedded are our water and access rights and yes I am concern that someone had convinced the UN to come to Hawaii like Pentagon, NRC and AEC and screw up our environment for Green profits.

I am concern with Depleted Uranium Waste Streaming and RDD/ IND…Class A and their stockholdings that disregard public safety in place of Aloha. Profits over our lives, but why? Why can’t people just understand that DU can never be safe or cleaned up. I’m so upset. Kaohi

hi Kaohi,

having a population of DNA damaged people appears to be the goal of New World Order/One World Order……..

the way i figure it, the NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND program is set in place with minimal expectations… because the goal would be for the child – DNA damaged ones, would only need to learn minimally because they will be the frontline soldiers for a WARMONGERING nation such as the United States who operates as the New World Order/One World Order military………..

there is a concern that such DNA damaged, inept people could eventually be trusted in controlling the Nuclear missile buttons………..and thank God GWBush is no longer there…..but sad to say that OBAMA is assuming the role……..does anyone know which Presidents attended Special Education btw? hmmm……

aloha.

 
p.s. with a nation of DNA damaged people, no one would question the WARS would they?

They understood the play and realized that I care more about nonbully students and really care about our kids that come to school to learn. The HSA is on and every teacher in the DOE are focusing on teaching. So, althoug I didn’t get fired I managed to survive the day.
