HISTORICAL EVIDENCE OF WHY THE U.S. IS A PREDATORY NATION

By Amelia Kuulei Gora Page 1 of 7 page(s)

For OpEdNews: Amelia Kuulei Gora – Writer

“Messenger” by Sudden Rush and Amy Hanaialii Gilliom

Reviewing the Kingdom of Hawaii’s History shows the ongoing criminal moves by a belligerent, pirate based, imperialistic nation the U.S. supported by England and the bankers, J.P. Morgan, Bank of England, etc.

The 1493 Papal Bulls, combined with the 1822 Secret Treaty of Verona signed by Austria, France, Russia, Prussia, the U.S., England, and the Vatican consenting to move the people on earth towards a One World Order/New World Order are at the basis of the business of Wars.

The 1822 Secret Treaty of Verona signors complements the Vatican for maintaining OBEDIENCE amongst the people. The Vatican, therefore, are ‘tools’ used to subdue, keep in control through religion, pacify, maintain the “sheep-like” behavior of their followers.

The Vatican also claims ties to all Christian Churches and are associates of those Churches.

Other activities of control over the populations are through the Masons/ Freemasons including the Mormon Church; Hollywood through movies, television utilizing subliminal messages; music; video games, etc.

Chronological Review of History since Dethroning Hawaii’s Queen in 1893:

1893 – Premeditation of assuming a neutral, non violent nation, Hawaiian Kingdom/Kingdom of Hawaii, was made through the standing orders of Congress via the NEW YORK TIMES article, “PEARL HARBOR COALING STATION.; IMPERATIVE NECESSITY THAT THE UNITED STATES TAKE POSSESSION.

January 9, 1893,Wednesday

Page 9, 1176 words

WASHINGTON, Jan. 8. — The United States, through the inactivity of the Navy Department and the indifference of the State Department, is likely to lose the only coaling station of which it stands in real need. Nothing has been done since 1884, when the Pearl Harbor site in the Hawaiian Islands became available, beyond a number of surveys which have abundantly demonstrated the excellence of this harbor as a site for a naval station. [ END OF FIRST PARAGRAPH ]

Note: the article was printed on January 9, 1893, the U.S. military left their Warship Boston two days before dethroning the Queen on January 17, 1893. The breach of treaty by the U.S., illegal acts creating duress upon the Queen and subjects/citizens continues as an obstacle, legal obstacles for the U.S. in criminally claiming the Hawaiian Islands as theirs.

1893 Panic of 1893 in the U.S. President Cleveland made a loan from the J.P. MORGAN N.M. Rothchild’s Syndicate, which was formed in 1870. Suspicion was on President Cleveland due to his allowance of the Nation’s money being in absolute control by private interests, MORGAN, Belmont, and the Rothchilds. The country was shocked by the huge profit that was rendered to the private interest.

U.S. was in a depression. U.S. had FIXED assets and bankrupt.

Queen Liliuokalani wrongfully “overthrown” but actually dethroned by American businessmen supported by the United States. Queen Liliuokalani’s deceased husband was a MASON, her brother in law Archibald Cleghorn was MASON, her hanai/adopted sister’s husband was Banker Charles Reed Bishop, a MASON. (Masons/Freemasons are set in place to break down Monarchy governments worldwide. Masons/Freemasons are a part of the soldiers of the New World Order/ One World Order goals.)

U. S. was in a depression. U.S. had FIXED assets and bankrupt.

Queen Liliuokalani maintained that the U.S. BREACHED THE LAW OF NATIONS. She also stated that the Provisional government made up of 3,000 Americans plus paid supporters, some Hawaiians/kanaka maoli included, was neither a de facto NOR a de jure government but an entity.

Queen Liliuokalani and 40,000 subjects of the Kingdom of Hawaii were called “N*I*G*G*E*R*S” by U.S. Congress, newspapermen, etc.

The Provisional Government backed by the U.S. STOLE the Kingdom of Hawaii’s treasuries monies, gold bullions, gold coins, etc. and with assisted the U.S. in FINANCING WARS —Spanish American War, World War I, and World War II, etc.

Three countries questioned the Provisional governments violations. They were: SPAIN, JAPAN and GERMANY.

OPPOSITIONS by FRANKLIN PRATT married to Kekaaniau, an heir of Kamehameha due to her ancestor being a half brother of Kamehameha was made.

Notes: Franklin Seaver Pratt’s sister was married to Charles Brewer II who associated with fellow PIRATES OF THE PACIFIC, Charles Reed Bishop and Peter Cushman Jones (son: Edwin Austin Jones).

Charles Reed Bishop was a banker, MASON, sugar plantation owner, investor in the Pacific Cable Company. Charles Reed Bishop owed the Kingdom of Hawaii millions of dollars due to loans from the government. The loans remained unpaid and only $179,000+ was left in the treasury with gold bullions, gold coins, silver, fees due, etc. Finally, Charles Reed Bishop was married to Bernice Pauahi who Americans claimed were the last of the Kamehameha’s.

Note: The claim was based on FRAUD. Kamehameha’s descendants existed then and exist now. The KSBE- Kamehameha Schools Bishop Estates/Bernice Pauahi Bishop Estates/ Kamehameha Schools is based on criminal deviance, fraud, corruption, perpetuation of lies, and genocide, etc., as with the other Sovereign trusts: King Lunalilo, Queen Kapiolani, Queen Liliuokalani/Liliuokalani Trust, etc.

Charles Reed Bishop supported the five (5) Commissioners of the Provisional entity in San Francisco.

President Cleveland denounced the Annexation of Hawaii. President Cleveland was the first cousin of James Hyde Pratt. Albany New York banker whose son in Hawaii named John Scott Boyd Pratt married Sarah Dickson. She was Gerritt Parmele Judd’s daughter, twin of Charles Hasting’s Judd, sister of Albert Francis Judd, Supreme Court Justice of the Kingdom of Hawaii who participated, supported those who dethroned Queen Liliuokalani.

Henry A. P. Carter wrote to John Scott Boyd Pratt, New York Banker, to interest President Cleveland in the Annexation of Hawaii.

Albert S. Willis returned to Hawaii to speak to Queen Liliuokalani about her reinstatement providing the revolutionists/Conspirators/
TERRORISTS would be given a general amnesty.

Provisional entity, PIRATES OF THE PACIFIC, Sanford B. Dole and others refused to comply. He further stated that the U.S. had no rights to interfere.

President Cleveland did nothing.

The U.S. Senate conducted an independent investigation in Washington with affidavits or testimonies from the following:

O.P. Emerson; Peter C. Jones; Z.S. Spalding; W. D. Alexander, Lt. Lucien Young; E. K. Moore; L. G. Hobbs; W.T. Swinburne; Lt. Laird; Albert Francis Judd; W.C. Wilder; J.H. soper; A.S. Wilcox; C. Bolte; George No. Wilcox; John Emmeluth; C.L. Carter; F.W. McChesney; W.B. Oleson; J.A. McCandless; Minister J. L. Stevens; J F. MORGAN; William R. Castle; L. A. Thurston; Dewitt Coffman; M. Stelker; William s. Bowen; F. W. Reeder; Charles L. Macarthur; Adm. George Belknap; N. B. Delameter; Francis R. Day; Rev. R.R. Hoes; W.E. Simpson; N. Ludlow; and S.N. Castle.

Queen Liliuokalani stated that they were “Conspirators against my government.” (Note: updated term for Conspirators is TERRORISTS)

MASONS were a secret society with one of the goals to BREAK DOWN MONARCHIAL GOVERNMENTS worldwide.

1898 SPANISH AMERICAN WAR- the Spanish were the arm of the Vatican. After the U.S. won, it appears the U.S. became the new “CRUSADER” for the Vatican who allows the “plundering upon barbarous countries”.

Note: Claims, comments toward “barbaric/barbarous” Hawaiians were made by Americans in Hawaii.

1900 GEORGE MACY, American businessmen, investor in the MACY STORE California began working as the Head of the Internal Revenue for the U.S. in Hawaii.

Note: The MACY name claims to be a descendant of Kamehameha according to the Probate uncovered at the Archives. FRAUD/CONSPIRACY issues appears to be of issue. Research incomplete.

1917 Queen Liliuokalani was approached by the Protestant Church minister to have the Jurisdiction of their Church be granted to the U.S. She did.

The Protestant minister claimed they could not find the Queen’s baptismal records.

Note: It appears the claim that the Queen was a barbaric/ “barbarous” nation was a claim attempted due to the Christian International Laws.

That failed because Queen Liliuokalani attended the Royal School, a Missionary School, a record of Mormon baptism was also kept.

Queen Liliuokalani was sent a letter from an attorney KENNEDY who stated that he would be able to help her out of the dilemma. Queen Liliuokalani dismissed ALL of her American Attorneys and basically stepped out of the Jurisdiction of the U.S. Courts and returned to her Sovereign status.

Queen Liliuokalani recorded that she did not get paid by the U.S.

MORGAN, head of a Presidential Committee claimed the Queen to be a barbaric person and assumed/presumed the transaction made to the President at the time of the Americans in Hawaii, the Provisional Government, was to be assumed by the President.

Queen Liliuokalani died. The President that Queen Liliuokalani had contact with DIED previously.

The LEAGUE OF NATIONS was formed.

Previously strapped for monies, the MORGAN bankers began making large investments.

MORGAN bankers invested monies for the U.S. and Great Britain, financed the Steel industry, etc.

1921 – The COUNCIL OF FOREIGN RELATIONS formed with U.S. and Great Britain’s members.

A meeting was held at the “HAROLD PRATT HOUSE at 58 East 68th Street in New York, the former mansion of the PRATT family, close friends of the Rockefellers. Soon afterwards, the day-to-day administration was taken over by Colonel House and his associates, including the Rockefellers and, particularly, J>P> MORGAN. The CFR’s founding president was John W. Davis, J>P> MORGAN’s personal attorney; the founding vice-president was Paul Gravath, from a law firm representing MORGAN; and the council’s first chairman was the MORGAN partner, Russell Leffingwell”.The Council on Foreign Relations and the Royal Institute of International Affairs are the same organisation, working on different sides of the Atlantic to carry out the same goals and agenda. Their members are in leading positions in government, including the Presidency, banking, business, education, military and the media.”

One of the goals of the CFR according to former Admiral Chester Ward, a former US Judge Advocate General of the Navy “”submergence of US sovereignty and national independence into an all-powerful one-world government”.

1942 – THE UNITED NATIONS was formed. Fifty nations pledged themselves “to employ full resources gainst the Axis powers, not to make a separate peace, etc.” in Washington. They signed a charter, which was written at the United Nations Conference on International Organization.

1944 – Representatives of the U.S., Great Britain, Russia and China met, planned, proposed and formulated to “deal with world peace and security” through a general international organization.

1945 A conference “United Nations Conference on International Organization was held from April 25 to June 26, 1945 in San Francisco. The charter was based on the proposals of Dumbarton Oaks Conference, a mansion in Washington, D.C.

The U.S. became INTERdependent with the UNITED NATIONS. The U.S. continues to be an arm of the Vatican “CRUSADER” validating Christian International Laws which plunders upon “barbarous/barbaric” countries.

1963 President John F. Kennedy was assasinated. He was in Hawaii meeting with the Mayors of the states. He informed everyone that the President would no longer appoint Mayors and the people would vote.

It was 46 years since the death of Queen Liliuokalani. It is interesting to note that the F.B.I./Federal Bureau of Investigations does a history check of only 45 years. A KENNEDY had notified Queen Liliuokalani that he would represent her.
It appears the Kennedy’s knew about the UNRESOLVED issues in Hawaii having to do with the bankers, American businessmen, and Civil Rights issues because Hawaii’s Queen was called “N*I*G*G*E*R*” along with others of color such as Martin Luther King, Jr.

President Kennedy was assasinated in Texas. Interestingly, Texas is the location where the sugar plantation owners in Hawaii moved to assume and occupy large tracts of land belonging to the Mexicans and backed by the U.S. government.
(President’s brother Robert Kennedy was also assasinated. Martin Luther King, Jr. a Civil Rights Leader was assasinated as well.)

1980′s Israel was looked as a “strategic asset” by both Israel and the U.S. “Israel’s primary role was to lie low while Washington forged its anti-Iraqi ties with Saudi Arabia, Egypt and even Syria. The president and his secretary of state, eager to deny Saddam Hussein’s call for linking a solution to the gulf crisis to that of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, seemed intent on keeping Israel at an arm’s length.

1981 June 7. Israel bombed Iraq’s reactor site and stopped construction.

1990 March ” U.S. and British customs officials seized a shipment of capacitors en route to Iraq. Capacitors are used as triggers for nuclear bombs.”

March 10. “Iraqi revolutionary court convicts Farzad Bazoft, Iraniana-born British free-lance correspondent, of espionage after he visits site of military complex explosion; Bazoft is sentenced to death; British nurse who drove Bazoft to site is sentenced to 15 years in prison. Iraq ignores international pleas for clemency and hangs Bazoft on March 15. Britain recalls its ambassador from Baghdad.”

April 2. “Iraqi President Saddam Hussein announces that Iraq posseses advanced chemical weapons and threatens to destroy half of Israel if it launches preemptive strike against Iraqi weapons facilities.”

July 3. “Iranian and Iraqi foreign ministers meet in Geneva for first direct talks since August 1988 conclusion of Iran-Iraq War; no progress is announced, but leaders of both Iraq and Iran express optimism about permanent peace settlement in separate speeches delivered 7/17.”

July 17. “Iraqi President Saddam Hussein delivers speech accusing Arab Persian Gulf nations of “plot” to hold down oil prices. Hussein sends letter to Arab League 7/18 charging Kuwait with stealing oil from disputed Rumaila oilfield straddling Kuwaiti-Iraqi border; Iraqi Foreign Minister Tariq Aziz demands Iraq’s $30 billion debt to Arab gulf neighbors be written off. Aziz travels to Cairo for talks with President Mubarak 7/22; they are joined by Jordan’s King Hussein 7/23. Mubarak 7/24 visits Kuwait, Iraq and Saudi Arabia, 7/25 announces Iraqi and Kuwaiti agreement to hold talks in Jidda, Saudi Arabia. At 7/25 meeting with U.S. Ambassador April Glaspie in Baghdad, Saddam threatens Kuwait and U.S. Iraq masses estimated 100,000 troops along Kuwaiti border; Jidda talks break down 8/01 after single 2-hour session.”

Aug. 2. “Iraqi army invades and conquers Kuwait; Sheik Jabir flees to Saudi Arabia. U.S. President Bush 8/2 calls invasion “naked aggression,” issues executive orders halting trade with Iraq and freezing Iraqi and Kuwaiti assets in U.S.; initially says U.S. military intervention is not under considration, but after meeting with British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher 8/32 in Aspen, Colorado, refuses to rule out “any options”. USSR 8/2 suspends deliveries of military supplies to Iraq, calls for withdrawal from Kuwait. UN Security Council 8/2 votes unaminously to condemn invasion and demand Iraqi withdrawal. France and Britain freeze Iraqi and Kuwaiti assets in their countries. Secretary of State. Baker and Soviet Foreign Minister Eduard Shevardnadze 8/3 issue joint statement condemning invasion. President Bush 8/3 says “integrity of Saudi Arabia” is “vital interest” for U.S. Fourteen of 21 members of Arab League, meeting in Cairo, 8/3 pass resolution condemning “Iraqi aggression”. EC imposes trade sanctions on Iraq 8/4. Japan bans imports of Iraqi and Kuwaiti oil 8/5.

Aug. 6. “UN Security Council votes 13-0, with Yemen and Cuba abstaining, to impose mandatory economic sanctions on Iraq.” U.S. Defense Secretary Richard B. Cheney visits Saudi Arabia for talks with King Fahd 8/6; Fahd requests protection of Saudi Arabia by U.S. troops and aircraft; deployment of U.S. troops to Saudi Arabia (“Operation Desert Shield”) is ordered by Bush 8/6; 2,300 U.S. paratroopers”etc.”

Iraq was a country of 18 million people.

“The Soviet Union provided the Iraqis with the biggest share of military equipment. The Iraqi Army was organized on the Soiet model and equipped by the U.S.S.R. The T-72 main battle tank, which was the heart of the Iraqi forces, was the Soviet Union’s second-best tank. The Irai Air Force flew a number of Soviet MiG-29 fighter planes. The Iraqi Scud missiles that were fired at Israel and Saudi Arabia were an eary Soviet type officially called SS-1, “surface-to-surface missile-1.” The name Scud was the NATO code name for this Soviet missile.”

“The French were the second most important supplier. The best fighter plane in the Iraqi Air Force was the French-made Mirage F-1. Many of these were flown to Iran during the war and were impounded. These planes were armed with Exocet missiles, capable of inflicting serious wounds on warships. Exocets could also be launched from the patrol boats of the Iraqi Navy.”

“A number of other countries provide parts of the arsenal. China had sold Iraq tanks, armored personnel carriers, and a missile called Silkworm. A German company provided the expertise to build a chemical weapons plant. There were even reports that the Iraqi had American-made Stinger missiles passed on to them by sources in Afghanistan.”

“None of these weapons is cheap, so Iraq needed financial assistance to purchase them. They got it from a variety of sources. The U.S. guaranteed about $400 million in loans for food. This freed up money to buy arms. Saudi Arabia provided financial assistance while Iraq fought Iran. During the same period, Kuwait loaned the Iraqis over $6 billion.”

1991 Iraq was defeated after a 100 hour war, even though Saddam Hussein promised “the mother of all battles”.

2001 – September 11. Rockefeller owned Twin Towers collapsed after aircraft armed by U.S. CIA trained Alcaida personnel and innocents/expendables slam into the former Standard Oil Company now EXXON Oil Companies buildings.

Osama Bin Ladin, Saddam Hussein, and others became the target called Terrorists by Oil Investor President George W. Bush, also a Mason/Freemason perpetuating the goals of his father former President George Bush coaching him into continued Wars against the Middle East for access, piracy(ies) of OIL disregarding People of Color, and viewing them as “Useless, Needless Eaters”, “Terrorists”, etc.

Calls for a review was recently made by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Tuesday in Tehran “who said last month that the terrorist attacks in the United States on Sept. 11, 2001, were “a big fabrication,” wrote to the United Nations secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, on Tuesday to ask him to open an investigation into the events of that day.” click here=1&sq=911%20&st=cse

2003 Iraq was inspected for Weapons of Mass destruction. Missiles and others were destroyed at the time of the United Nations Inspectors.

Depleted Uranium expert Leuren Moret: “Population is a political problem. The extreme secrecy surrounding the takeover of nuclear weapons, NASA and the space program and the development of numerous bio-weapons labs is a threat to civil society, especially in the hands of the military and corporations.

The fascist application of all three of these programs can be used to achieve established U.S. government depopulation policy goals, which may eliminate 2 billion of the world’s existing population through war, famine, disease and any other methods necessary.

Two excellent examples of existing U.S. depopulation policy are, first, the long-term impact on the civilian population from Agent Orange in Vietnam, where the Rockefellers built oil refineries and aluminum plants during the Vietnam War. The second is the permanent contamination of the Middle East and Central Asia with depleted uranium, which, unfortunately, will destroy the genetic future of the populations living in those regions and will also have a global effect already reflected in increases in infant mortality reported in the U.S., Europe, and the UK”http://www.cyberspaceorbit.com/kissy.html

2010 – Washington named Iraq, Iran, and North Korea as the axis of evil. Meaning the plans for perpetual Wars is at hand. Inducing potential victims (includes innocents in our Hawaiian Islands due to the criminal use of depleted uranium/DU, etc.) to surrender their right to self-defense under threat of nuclear annihilation.

Summary

Iraq bombed mercilessly. It was not a WAR but a breach in contract from Saddam Hussein and the United Nations. The bill collectors was the United States a documente PREDATORY NATION.
INNOCENTS as with the other wars died needlessly. OIL WAS AND IS THE GOAL. (See backgrounds of the U.S. President and advisors/members of his staff). See issues of the UNITED NATIONS and others at website:
http://myweb.ecomplanet.com/GORA8037 especially see John Nelson’s legal research regarding Americans as SLAVES, U.S. INTERdependent with the UNITED NATIONS whose goal is ONE WORLD ORDER, etc.

CONCLUSION – based on the above, there were no WMD/Weapons of Mass Destruction for much has been previously destroyed with the UNITED NATIONS inspectors observing as reported on the internet, and media.

In our Hawaiian Islands

The U.S. is viewed as a belligerent occupier, supported by the military which has historically acted in an aggressive manner with the intent to claim lands, monies, resources from a friendly, neutral nation, who holds hostage the innocent people of our Hawaiian archipelago utilizing weapons of mass destruction for firing nuclear weapons/DU/depleted uranium, target practice and claims to defend a nation(s) who has criminally maneuvered, created wars against innocents, is bankrupt, cannot Treaty or have a Convention with non-bloods of our Royal families, and fail to protect the lives and safety of their own citizenry, including the aboriginal land owners who legally owns the Hawaiian archipelago.

Since the admission of crimes in Public Law 103-150 signed by U.S. President William Clinton, it is and remains unacceptable to maintain any form of treaty, convention, pact with a neutral, non-violent nation under duress, stress, coercion, and usurpation.

An eviction notice was served. Time to leave is documented as December 2010.

The entity State of Hawaii are not related to our families. The Trustees of the Bishop Estates/KSBE/Kamehameha Schools Bishop Estates, stock owners of more than half of Goldman-Sachs currently under scrutiny by OBAMA, et. als., are not related to us.

Queen Liliuokalani maintained that the Provisional government, supported through conspiracies, piracy(ies) by the U.S. who breached the Law of Nations were neither de jure nor de facto and an entity. Meaning, the entity is a foreign corporation supported by the U.S. military which continues today in all parts of the world through the former Standard Oil Company which evolved into EXXON Corporation headed by the 911 Twin Tower Owners the Rockefellers who also gifted the land for the purpose of the One World Order/New World Order government, the United Nations.

In reviewing the problematic issues and exploring the evidence as to Why the U.S. Is a Predatory Nation, the return of the original Law of Nations must be made, the American citizens move to impeach all who follow the One World Order/New World Order government including U.S. President Obama, those in Congress, set up another Federal Reserve Bank which cannot be sold as stocks, remove all laws set up to ‘protect the lives and safety of corporations abroad’, retrieve the U.S. military from further ‘protecting the lives and properties of corporations’, close many of the thousands of military bases abroad, including those in the Hawaiian Islands. Military Power supports Corporations greed, the true Puppeteers since 1893 dethronement of Queen Liliuokalani from a neutral, non-violent nation, a friendly nation, a recognized Monarchy based government which was criminally usurped by bankrupt, premeditations of Corporate thieves, bankers, sugar planters, American businessmen supported by the bankrupt nations U.S., England and the Morgan and the Bank of England.

The U.S. breached the Laws of Nations, they set up the League of Nations, formed the CFR/Council of Foreign Relations with England, and the bankers (Morgan, etc.), and created the United Nations with funds from the Rockefellers, et. als. /Corporations. The Rockefellers are the permanent heads of EXXON Oil Corporation, an umbrella corporations over many others, which evolved from the Standard Oil Company which was charged with maintaining a Monopoly, then moved into foreign territory supported by Mason/Freemason lawyers in defending them and gaining support from Mason/Freemason Congress to assist with military protection overseas
while keeping the truth from their citizens.

The controls on the citizens by the Vatican/Churches, Hollywood, TV, media, etc. must be recognized as diversions by all.

Americans will need to support of laws opposing Corporations outside of the U.S. will further curtail the use of supporting U.S. militaries, lessen the thousands of U.S. bases abroad. For further information, see: Prof. Jules Dufour 2007 article at http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=5564

Lastly, Queen Liliuokalani prophesied that if the U.S. fails to make corrections (because the true landowners/heirs exist and maintain a neutral, non-violent nation, Monarchy based government as with many of the nations which were wrongfully plundered upon – Spain, Japan, Germany, Iraq, etc.), the U.S. will fall apart.

A BRIEF CONDENSED HISTORY OF OUR HAWAIIAN/KANAKA MAOLI

PEOPLE by Amelia Kuulei Gora (2001) (updated 2010) One of Kamehameha’s descendants, a Royal Person not subject to the law(s)

The following was written with the purpose of showing the early contact period, the Pre-Monarchy Period through the Monarchy Period up till Kamehameha V. (Other Periods have been discussed and has been presented on various boards on this and other other forums as well.)

Number 1.

Utilization of Aged Documents for Land, Money, Water, etc. Ongoing Since 1863 Disregarding the True Heirs

Note: See the Department of Commerce Records for the Hamakua Sugar Company or Kohala Sugar case files for the frauds uncovered. Also see documents filed in the Affidavit/Lien No. 96-177455 on 12/17/96 (281 pages). Note that entity Territory of Hawaii – President appointed Governor Poindexter utilized Lot Kamehameha’s signature in 1935….nearly a 50 years After he died!

KOHALA SUGAR, the predecessors of Hamakua Mill/Hamakua Sugar was started by the missionaries utilizing documents of association signed by Minister of Interior, Lot Kamehameha, in 1863.

Kamehameha IV � Alexander Liholiho was still in command at the time.

Note: The documents found by good researchers includes CW Ashford’s notes for it was he who perpetuated the lies and criminal activities affecting the Crown Lands, water rights, etc.

CW Ashford and his brother Volney Ashford were English subjects/dual citizens. Remember Volney Ashford was arrested with 20 others, along with Robert Wilcox the cousin of King David Kalakaua and Queen Liliuokalani. Volney Ashford and Robert Wilcox were tried for treason during Queen Liliuokalani’s period or approximately six (6) months before Congress gave the order to assume the Hawaiian Kingdom……read Books 1 and 2 above/ see below:

Number 2.

PILGRIMS DESCENDANTS IN OUR MIDST

The Protestant Missionaries, the KOHALA SUGAR and other eventual plantations operating under the documents of 1863, were descendants of the English Pilgrims who had historically created a climate of hate, animosity, greed towards the indigenous peoples, the Indians.

B A C K G R O U N D

The English Pilgrims and 50 years later, Captain James Cook left the location called Plymouth, England. The English Pilgrims landing in the Americas, named their already inhabited site Plymouth, Massachussetts.

A statement made by a well-known Protestant minister sets the climate of the times:

�The woods were cleared of those pernicious creatures (Indians) to make room for a better growth.�
Two well known ministers, Increase and Cotton Mather (father and son), wrote more than 450+ books. They were descendants of Richard Mather a minister suspended from the Church of England�s ministry and moved to Massachussetts where he created conflicts in the church.

**** A Look at the Wampaog Indians � King Phillip�s War ****

The Wampaog tribe was nearly wiped out, many prisoners were taken into slavery.
King Phillip, the high chief was decapitated, his head was placed on a stick in the Massachussetts town square, on display till as late as 1700.

**** A Look at the Witchhunts of Massachussetts ****

The following books witten by the influential Protestant ministers moved the masses of people to witch hunts, hangings, killings, cruelty and punishment to many innocent people.

These books were: ESSAY FOR THE RECORDING OF ILLUSTRIOUS PROVIDENCES; CASES OF CONSCIENCE CONCERNING EVIL SPIRITS AND OTHERS. These books led the people to believe that WITCHES WERE IN THE LEAGUE OF SATAN.

**** The Printing Presses of the Early Missionaries or Pilgrim Descendants ****

With the proud missionaries and their printing presses, it afforded news of all kinds to be dispersed to all �learned men or cultured peoples� including Plymouth, England, the former homes of the Pilgrims who had formed a Pact/Mayflower Compact, forming a new kind of government, a government in the already inhabited America�s.

RETALIATION AFTER CAPTAIN JAMES COOK�S DEATH

Captain James Cook GRABBED kapu alii/chief Kalniopuu by the shoulder.

Cook failed to respect the cultural norms of the Hawaiian Society and was killed. No one was allowed to touch the kapu alii/chief and suffered the consequences, along with his men on shore.

After Captain James Cook and four of his men were slain, the English retaliated similar to the works of the English Pilgrim/missionaries on the Indians.

In Captain Cook�s men�s diaries/journals, they constantly referred to the kanaka maoli as �Indians�. (Notice the Protestant pilgrims influence.)

Three of our kanaka maoli alii/chief�s were decapitated, their heads were hung on the bows of the ship for all to see.

Hundreds of kanaka maoli were shot, many in their backs, fire was set to their homes.

(Notice the Protestant pilgrims influence � see the previous entries of the Wampaog Indians and the slain Indians leader King Phillip.)

Thousands of kanaka maoli were killed, due to the disease infested men from Captain Cook�s ships.

They had frequented many island shores, such as TAHITI, COOK ISLANDS and others leaving disease trails behind them.

The doctor knew that 66 were afflicted.

Note: It was suggested by some that the crew passed the disease among themselves.

The men knew they were afflicted/infected and yet blamed the kanaka maoli for being the cause of the later outbreaks.

The Protestant Missionaries in later years, accused the kanaka maoli as being the cause.

What about the depraved English sailors aching for sexual, bodily pleasures, which ultimately produced another human?

Note: Some of the babies were deformed, some died soon after child birth. The same outcome due to the introduction of Depleted Uranium/DU in the environment by Americans, English, et. als. has occurred or continues today.

Masses of cells clumped together is also a horrific outcome of Depleted Uranium/DU births.

It could be said that the English depraved lot is also applicable towards the description of the military tainted with DNA mutating genes affecting innocents in the World today.

Were whites exempt from the carnal evils preached by whites and caused by only people of color?

Meanwhile, thousands, hundreds of thousands of unborn kanaka maoli babies, women and men died.

Number 3. CATHOLICS IN HAWAII Kamehameha friend/consultant was name Paul Marin, or Paulo Manini, a Spaniard who baptized more than 300 chiefs into the Catholic religion.

Kamehameha (k) instructed his alii/chiefs to set aside the kapu system because he was a makaula/a seer and prophesied the dangers if the Hawaiian religion were continued.

Kamehameha began the Hawaiian Monarchy government in 1810.

Kamehameha treatied with Aetearoa (New Zealand) and the Samoan Islands and the three nations were recognized as the Pacific Empire.

Kamehameha died on May 18, 1819.

Kaahumanu (w), one of his wives, became the Kuhina Nui.

Her Cousin Kalanimoku (k) became the assistant and kahu of Kamehameha�s son through another wife Keopuolani (w).

Kamehameha and Keopuolani (w) had Liholiho, Kauikeouli, Nahienaena, and six (6) unnamed others.

Note: The setting aside of the kapu system left the Hawaiian Society in a fragile condition, a period of Anomie � social norms absent.

This was the perfect period for social change, a time for Opportunists to sell their bibles, preach their bibles, etc.

The main concern of Kamehameha was the ceasing of the ancient Kapu system with �barbaric� rituals which could have been the cause of the demise of the whole of the kanaka maoli society.

Kamehameha was a makaula, a seer, who operated partly with spiritual confidence aside from his physical confidence.

Due to the affects of the Papal Bull issues by the Pope in 1493 and the thrust towards all world civilizations with the claims of delineating the uncivilized vs. the civilized peoples, with intentions of destroying, plundering, and assuming lands, resources, etc. belonging to those suspected as being barbaric, etc., the rationale of our ancestor Kamehameha can be seen.

The Papal Bull was recently set aside after ongoing protests by aboriginal peoples which included kanaka maoli and American Indians.

Kalanimoku�s (k) mother had been baptized a Catholic and had requested for her family to follow.

Kalanimoku (k) whose wives included Akahi (w), my ancestor, and his brother Boki (k) were baptized Catholics aboard the French ship L�URANIE.

Note: Kalanimoku (k), Boki (k) had siblings: Wahinepio (w), Manono Nui (w), Keoua (k) (my ancestor), et. als.

Kamehameha II � Liholiho (k) wanted to be baptized also but chose not to because of stepmother Kaahumanu (w) the appointed Kuhina Nui�s temper.

Number 4. PROTESTANTS/PILGRIMS DESCENDANTS INFLUENCE The First (1st) Company of American Protestant Missionaries sponsored by the American Board of Foreign Missions (ABFM) arrived in Hawaii on the THADDEUS at Kailua, Hawaii.

The American missionaries introduced the concept of Western marriages.

Their names are as follows: Rev. Hiram Bingham and wife Sybil Mosely Daniel Chamberlain and wife Jerusha Thomas Holman, M>D> and wife, Lucy Ruggles Elisha Loomis and wife, Maria Theresa Sartwell Samuel Ruggles and wife, Nancy Wells Rev. Asa Thurston and wife, Lucy Goodale Rev. Samuel Whitney and wife Mercy Partridge Three Hawaiian helpers: Thomas Hopu William Kaniu John Honolii

Note: The Missionaries were Mercenaries/American Mercenaries. It appears that Daniel Chamberlain is one of the ancestors of Daniel Akaka who pushes the Akaka Bill today, set in place to defraud, pirate assets, lands, resources, wealth of our kanaka maoli. Daniel Akaka is also a descendant of treasonous person, conspirator Thomas Akaka who worked with Dr. Mott-Smith, Lorrin Thurston, et. als. in Washington D.C. planning the wrongful, criminal dethronement of our Queen in 1892.

On April 27, 1823, the Second (2nd) Company of American Protestant Missionaries arrived from New England. They arrived on the ship THAMES captained by Reuben Clasby. The missionaries were the following: Rev. Artemas Bishop and wife Elizabeth E. Abraham Blatchley, M. amnd wife Jemima Marvin Levi Chamberlain and wife, Maria Patton Rev. James Ely and wife, Louisa Everest Rev. Joseph Goodrich and wife, Martha Barnes Rev. William Richards and wife, Clarissa Lyman Rev. Charles Samuel Stewart and wife Harriet Bradford Tiffany Miss Betsy Stockton Tahitian: Stephen Popohe Hawaiians: William Kamooula Richard Kalaioulu Kupelii

These mercenaries for the United States, armed with bibles, greed, jealousy, animosities, etc. quickly moved to encourage the kanaka maoli in joining their cause. They were opportunists who entered a Society which was in a state of anomie � unstable, flux, grasping at all religions to substitute one that was in place for hundreds/thousands of years.

These mercenaries(backed by their government: the United States who also paid for their move, etc.) were operating from a slave-master society along with validation given to them through the Papal Bulls of 1493 by the Vatican to plunder upon �barbarous societies�.

The Papal Bulls of 1493 allowed killing of peoples, most of whom were all peoples of color.

On November 27, 1823, Kamehameha II � Liholiho (k) and company sailed for England.

Kauikeaouli was named as heir apparent under Kaahumanu�s regency.

On July 8, 1824, Kamamalu (w) died, six days later, on July 14, 1824 her husband, Kamehameha II – Liholiho (k) died.

Both were afflicted with the measles, died in England and their bodies were returned unaccompanied by John Rives, Kamehameha�s II�s childhood playmate who was a Catholic.

(Kamehameha II had seven wives. One was named Pali who married my great great grandfather.)

Kaahumanu (w) who took care of Liholiho (k) was so angry that it appears that the Protestant Missionaries saw it as an opportunity and took advantage of the situation.

Catholic Chiefs were tortured, imprisoned, put to hard labor. All Catholics were punished.

———————————- Summary:

The information has been placed on the internet due to requests by one of many new friends, namely Mutassdes. The above information covers part of the missionary/mercenary period of Hawaii and the United States revealing the similarities of labeling Hawaiian/ kanaka maoli “Indians” by Americans and Brittish.

Significantly, all countries will see some of the issues when exploring each time period with the missionaries/mercenaries in their homelands as well.

The United States government maintains that they will “protect the lives, and property of their own” actually means that Americans outside of the United States, once investing in foreign soil is also investing as private investors in foreign lands due to the taxes, etc. due to the United States.

As with out ancestors and the Great Mahele/Land Division period, Kamehameha III/King Kamehameha III, foreigners were given “freehold” paperwork, less than “allodial” paperwork.

Americans (and others including British subjects/dual citizens, et. als.) then rewrote the meanings, destroyed old books that has the true definitions and proceeded to accommodate and deviate by helping themselves through devious manipulations of paperwork, legalities, etc.

Although the United States and others tried to write history as Hawaii being barbaric, that charge could not be maintained due to the activities uncovered in conspiracies, deviance, FRAUD, criminal manipulations via the paper trails which exists in Monarchial and other such governments.

FRAUD vitiates all claims, all contracts, which also covers all the bases for the many, excessive amount of reasons why the UNITED NATIONS can and must cease to exist.

A formation of a new entity or return to the Law of Nations must be made for the purpose of ongoing respect to each country knowing that the United States has indeed set everyone up based on FRAUD, CONSPIRACIES, DEVIANCE and as documented by Queen Liliuokalani in 1893 has BREACHED THE LAW of NATIONS.

The continued survival of all ANCIENT nations, countries, societies must recognize the importance of the LAW of NATIONS versus the manipulations and maneuvers by United States etals who maintains the documented charge of BREACHES by Hawaii’s Queen Liliuokalani, Kingdom of Hawaii, a Monarchy government turned Constitutional Monarchy.

The Kings bloodlines EXIST, Kamehameha’s descendants are Royal Persons and NOT SUBJECT TO THE LAWS.

The Sovereigns, namely King Kalakaua, bloodlines and heirs exist and much to the despair, despair of the entity calling themselves the State of Hawaii with documented OPPOSITION and wrongfully backed by the United States with ongoing and unresolved issues affecting ALL NATIONS today.

Oppositions to War, financed at the expense of the Kingdom of Hawaii and our Kamehameha Families, Royals Families is UNACCEPTABLE.

It is with ongoing hope and prayers that these efforts via the Internet are indeed purposeful and useful in maintaining the continued safety from harm by those who make BUSINESS OF WAR and set their goals on PLUNDERING UPON INNOCENTS for greed, power, animosities towards all people of color, etc………It is imperative that our kanaka maoli document that the United States is indeed a terrorist nation, a nation supporting genocide activities in our Hawaiian Islands through the premeditation moves by Congress, the U.S. President Benjamin Harrison, and other U.S. Presidents perpetuating the crimes of the past….It is imperative that the two (2) issues: 1) terrorist nation/terror nation and 2) genocide activities ongoing be documented in the World Courts and added to the Sandanistas who have already documented the U.S.(and partner in crime England, the Morgan bankers, etc.) as a terrorist/terroristic/terror and genocide activist, etc. nation …………….aloha nui loa.

Amnesty International botches blame for North Korea’s crumbling healthcare
“Economic sanctions are, at their core, a war against public health.”
–The New England Journal of Medicine

By Stephen Gowans

If we recognize that “economic sanctions are, at their core, a war against public health” and acknowledge, as a former US president has, that North Korea is “the most sanctioned nation in the world,” it is difficult not to draw the obvious conclusion: that the crumbling of North Korea’s healthcare system is due to sanctions. How is it, then, that a new Amnesty International report blames Pyongyang’s “failed or counterproductive” policies, while saying not a word about sanctions?

The real story on North Korea and its healthcare

By Stephen Gowans

Perhaps, the real story about North Korean healthcare isn’t the challenges it faces, or the systematic efforts of the United States to make it collapse, but the fact that it hasn’t collapsed despite these challenges, and has managed to earn the praise of the WHO as the envy of many developing nations.

Depleted Uranium

Ms. Moore,

While I cannot answer your question about how you can make the U.S. Army change its manner of testing, I will try to recap the status of the two NRC processes at play with respect to the U.S. Army in Hawaii:

Although you were not a party to the licensing proceeding that you, Mr. Harp, and I have been discussing via e-mail, the e-mails that you have sent throughout that process were seen and considered, for whatever action was appropriate, by the licensing staff. As I related to Mr. Harp, the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board’s initial decision is currently under appeal with the Commission. We do not know when a decision will be rendered.

Mr. Harp also filed a petition requesting that the NRC take enforcement action against the U.S. Army. This is 10 CFR 2.206 petition (the regulation can be found here: http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-collections/cfr/part002/part002-0206.html

). The NRC staff is still considering this petition and the finalized director’s decision on Mr. Harp’s request will address whether enforcement action will proceed.

I hope this helps,

Kimberly

Aloha Kimberly,

I have appreciated your response to Isaac’s concerns as his interest in having the army be accountable to accurate information are the same concerns of many of us who are at risk.

My question is, where does this go from here? None of us feel that the testing is being done properly. How can we make it so?

Subject: Re: LB Memorandum and Order (Denying Requests for Hearing) (LBP-10-04) US Army Installation Command

Aloha Kimberly,

Thank you so very much for your very thorough explanation!

Yes, the NRC hearing process is extremely difficult to understand, especially when it comes to establishing standing. I need to make a few points before ending this thread of communication.

The Army prefers to use a 5 micron filter pore size to monitor the air for DU because airborne DU particles of the size captured in a 5 micron filter are quite heavy to remain airborne for any significant distance. The appropriate filter pore size for air monitoring is .45 (45/100) micron or smaller. If the Army used the appropriate filters perhaps folks like myself wouldn’t be sitting for months waiting on an appeal because standing would have been established during oral arguments.

I have come to the opinion that it appears that what we have here is a cooperative effort to provide uranium enrichment facilities a means of turning DU, a liability, into an asset that can be sold to the military. The military is taking advantage of DU to create weapons far superior to all others to carry out the undeniable United States effort towards global dominance.

I sit here asking myself, what is the point of being the dominant party on a planet that will be iunnhabitable because the very weapons that assisted the dominant party has contaminated the planet for billions of years? For a country that is a mere baby compared to many others, including Hawaii, it is so sad that the baby’s greed for power and control has gotten so far out of hand that the baby will do almost anything to get it’s way.

I hope the day comes when all persons involved in this process from the NRC and the Army have an opportunity to visit Hawaii island, specifically the Pohakuloa military training area when the wind is blowing clouds of dust off of the training area and across our island. Perhaps then the NRC and the Army will understand our concern regarding ingesting DU particulate matter through inhalation. The world knows that DU is dangerous but the user, the US military, and regulator, the NRC seem purposefully ignorant to this fact.

Very Sincerely,

Isaac Harp

Dear Mr. Harp,

You asked who the “presiding officer” is and to answer that, under the regulation 10 C.F.R. § 2.341 that I quoted to you in a previous email, the “presiding officer” was the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board that you appeared in front of back in January (Administrative Judges Hawkens, Baratta, and Kennedy). As I explained in a previous email, the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board is the NRC’s independent trial-level adjudicatory body. On February 24, 2010, that Board (aka, the “presiding officer”) released a decision that denied your hearing request for failure to establish standing. You appealed the Board’s February 24th decision. That appeal, per our regulations, is currently being considered by the Commission. The Commission is the NRC’s appellate body.

As Emile Julian explained to you in his July 7th email, he cannot advise you on the timing of your appeal due to a number of different factors. Because Brett Klukan and I are the attorneys for the NRC staff and were parties to the proceeding, we are separate from the Commission. Therefore, we have the same information as the other parties have (meaning that you, me and Mr. Klukan representing the Staff, and the U.S. Army are all in the same position regarding the amount of information we have about the status of the appeal). Mr. Julian, who works for the Secretary of the Commission, informed all the parties that he does not know the timing of your appeal.

I know that this is a lot of information and that the NRC’s hearing process can sometimes be difficult to understand. The NRC’s public webpage has a number of resources for helping members of the public better understand our procedures. Here are some links that might assist you:

Mahalo for your responses.

Could you please tell me who the presiding officer is, and how long it normally takes for the presiding officer to review and make a decision on an application to possess depleted uranium contamination such as that scatter across Hawaii?

Would you be able to inform me on the status of my appeal?

Dear Mr. Harp,

In response to your questions:

(1) No. Under the rules of 10 C.F.R. § 2.341(e), neither the filing nor the granting of a petition for review (i.e., an appeal such as yours) stays the effect of the decision or action of the presiding officer, unless the Commission orders otherwise. Therefore, the NRC staff will continue to review the Army’s application to possess depleted uranium at two sites in Hawaii—Schofield Barracks on Oahu and Pohakuloa Training Area on the Big Island of Hawaii—and make its decisions to grant or deny the license according to its normal procedures.

(2) No response necessary because the answer to question number one is no.

(3) Although no response is necessary to this because the answer to question number one is no, the Army is required to submit separate license applications for the facilities it has identified as falling into the category of facilities possessing licensable quantities of DU: Fort Benning, Georgia; Fort Carson, Colorado; Fort Campbell, Kentucky; Fort Hood, Texas; Fort Lewis, Washington; Fort Knox, Kentucky; and Fort Riley, Kansas.

I hope this has answered your questions,

Aloha Emile,

Mahalo (Thank you) for trying to clarify the situation. I have a couple of other questions that you might be able to assist me with.

1) Am I correct in assuming that while my appeal remains under review by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission that the Army will not receive a Depleted Uranium Possession License for the Hawaii sites?

2) If the response to question number 1 above is YES, does this apply to all locations listed under the Army’s application for an NRC Possession Only License, or does this apply to the Hawaii locations only?

3) If the response to question number 2 above is that it applies to Hawaii locations only, will the Army be required to submit a new application to the NRC for a Depleted Uranium Possession Only License for the non-Hawaii locations listed on their current application?

Mahalo Nui Loa! (Thank You Very Much!)

Hi Mr. Harp,

Before answering your original e-mail I consulted with Commission advisors. It is difficult to advise you on the timing of a specific appeal (each appeal is to the Commission itself [the five Commissioners] sitting as an appellate body) because there are a number of factors, such as the number and complexity of issues on appeal, the number of appeals under review at any given time by the Commission as well as the Commission’s total workload.

I wish I could be more certain in my response, but the fact is that any time provided could change due to the factors I mentioned or unforeseen events that could require Commission’s attention.

Your patience is certainly appreciated.

Aloha Emile,

It’s been 4-months since I submitted my appeal so could you possibly share with me what the usual duration is on appeals to rulings made by the Atomic Licensing and Safety Board Judges? 4-months seems like an extraodinarily long appeal review process.

Ms. Moore,

While I cannot answer your question about how you can make the U.S. Army change its manner of testing, I will try to recap the status of the two NRC processes at play with respect to the U.S. Army in Hawaii:

Although you were not a party to the licensing proceeding that you, Mr. Harp, and I have been discussing via e-mail, the e-mails that you have sent throughout that process were seen and considered, for whatever action was appropriate, by the licensing staff. As I related to Mr. Harp, the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board’s initial decision is currently under appeal with the Commission. We do not know when a decision will be rendered.

Mr. Harp also filed a petition requesting that the NRC take enforcement action against the U.S. Army. This is 10 CFR 2.206 petition (the regulation can be found here: http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-collections/cfr/part002/part002-0206.html

). The NRC staff is still considering this petition and the finalized director’s decision on Mr. Harp’s request will address whether enforcement action will proceed.

I hope this helps,

Kimberly

Aloha Kimberly,

I have appreciated your response to Isaac’s concerns as his interest in having the army be accountable to accurate information are the same concerns of many of us who are at risk.

My question is, where does this go from here? None of us feel that the testing is being done properly. How can we make it so?

Subject: Re: LB Memorandum and Order (Denying Requests for Hearing) (LBP-10-04) US Army Installation Command

Aloha Kimberly,

Thank you so very much for your very thorough explanation!

Yes, the NRC hearing process is extremely difficult to understand, especially when it comes to establishing standing. I need to make a few points before ending this thread of communication.

The Army prefers to use a 5 micron filter pore size to monitor the air for DU because airborne DU particles of the size captured in a 5 micron filter are quite heavy to remain airborne for any significant distance. The appropriate filter pore size for air monitoring is .45 (45/100) micron or smaller. If the Army used the appropriate filters perhaps folks like myself wouldn’t be sitting for months waiting on an appeal because standing would have been established during oral arguments.

I have come to the opinion that it appears that what we have here is a cooperative effort to provide uranium enrichment facilities a means of turning DU, a liability, into an asset that can be sold to the military. The military is taking advantage of DU to create weapons far superior to all others to carry out the undeniable United States effort towards global dominance.

I sit here asking myself, what is the point of being the dominant party on a planet that will be iunnhabitable because the very weapons that assisted the dominant party has contaminated the planet for billions of years? For a country that is a mere baby compared to many others, including Hawaii, it is so sad that the baby’s greed for power and control has gotten so far out of hand that the baby will do almost anything to get it’s way.

I hope the day comes when all persons involved in this process from the NRC and the Army have an opportunity to visit Hawaii island, specifically the Pohakuloa military training area when the wind is blowing clouds of dust off of the training area and across our island. Perhaps then the NRC and the Army will understand our concern regarding ingesting DU particulate matter through inhalation. The world knows that DU is dangerous but the user, the US military, and regulator, the NRC seem purposefully ignorant to this fact.

Very Sincerely,

Isaac Harp

Dear Mr. Harp,

You asked who the “presiding officer” is and to answer that, under the regulation 10 C.F.R. § 2.341 that I quoted to you in a previous email, the “presiding officer” was the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board that you appeared in front of back in January (Administrative Judges Hawkens, Baratta, and Kennedy). As I explained in a previous email, the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board is the NRC’s independent trial-level adjudicatory body. On February 24, 2010, that Board (aka, the “presiding officer”) released a decision that denied your hearing request for failure to establish standing. You appealed the Board’s February 24th decision. That appeal, per our regulations, is currently being considered by the Commission. The Commission is the NRC’s appellate body.

As Emile Julian explained to you in his July 7th email, he cannot advise you on the timing of your appeal due to a number of different factors. Because Brett Klukan and I are the attorneys for the NRC staff and were parties to the proceeding, we are separate from the Commission. Therefore, we have the same information as the other parties have (meaning that you, me and Mr. Klukan representing the Staff, and the U.S. Army are all in the same position regarding the amount of information we have about the status of the appeal). Mr. Julian, who works for the Secretary of the Commission, informed all the parties that he does not know the timing of your appeal.

I know that this is a lot of information and that the NRC’s hearing process can sometimes be difficult to understand. The NRC’s public webpage has a number of resources for helping members of the public better understand our procedures. Here are some links that might assist you:

Dear Mr. Harp,

In response to your questions:

(1) No. Under the rules of 10 C.F.R. § 2.341(e), neither the filing nor the granting of a petition for review (i.e., an appeal such as yours) stays the effect of the decision or action of the presiding officer, unless the Commission orders otherwise. Therefore, the NRC staff will continue to review the Army’s application to possess depleted uranium at two sites in Hawaii—Schofield Barracks on Oahu and Pohakuloa Training Area on the Big Island of Hawaii—and make its decisions to grant or deny the license according to its normal procedures.

(2) No response necessary because the answer to question number one is no.

(3) Although no response is necessary to this because the answer to question number one is no, the Army is required to submit separate license applications for the facilities it has identified as falling into the category of facilities possessing licensable quantities of DU: Fort Benning, Georgia; Fort Carson, Colorado; Fort Campbell, Kentucky; Fort Hood, Texas; Fort Lewis, Washington; Fort Knox, Kentucky; and Fort Riley, Kansas.

I hope this has answered your questions,

THE TRUTH ABOUT PRINCESS KAIULANI – Never mentioned in the Movies or History

researcher Amelia Gora, a Royal person (2010)

Yes indeed, Kawananakoa moved to marry Princess Kaiulani whose mother Miriam Likelike was the sister of King David Kalakaua and Queen Liliuokalani…….

Princess Kaiulani died. Prince Kawananakoa married Abigail Campbell.

Tons of criminal activity surrounding the Cleghorns married to the Lucas who introduced the Secret Society of Masons/Freemasons………Abigail Campbell’s father James Campbell participated in dethroning our Queen, etc. etc. Research continues.

Note: Found some really ugly stuff today………guess what? choke documents of Queen Liliuokalani’s has been removed from the Libers/Books at the Bureau of Conveyances! About 30+ pages to date………….four (4) books have been affected! Now, these are issues of genocide………..and the entity State of Hawaii wants to REMOVE the books by 2012!

aloha.

Because there are some issues of Hawaiians supporting the Akaka Bill, it is only right to republish the names………perhaps connecting the dots from their ancestors to those who move to pass the Akaka Bill will help in proving that many are perpetuating the crimes of the past:

PREFACE

THIS book was partially completed just sub-
sequent to the signing of the Portsmouth
Treaty. But it was put aside in order to allow
sufficient time to verify or disprove its hypotheses
and conclusions.

In all but inessential details it remains as orig-
inally written. Succeeding events have so con-
firmed the beliefs of that time that I now feel justi-
fied in giving the book to the public.

INTRODUCTION

BY

LIEUTENANT-GENERAL ADNA R. CHAFFEE

LATE CHIEF-OF-STAFP, UNITED STATES ARMY

To THE AUTHOR:

Hail! The Valor of Ignorance!!

AFTER careful reading of the manuscript, we
believe that when it is given publication it
will greatly interest public officials, National and
State, as well as the mass of intelligent citizens in
private life, who have not hitherto had arranged
for them a series of pictures equal in importance
to the collection that is to be found in the twenty-
one chapters of this book.

We do not know of any work in military literature
published in the United States more deserving the
attention of men who study the history of the
United States and the Science of War than this
The Valor of Ignorance. And, as the government of
the United States is “Of the people, for the people,
and by the people,” it is quite in order to invite

xi

INTRODUCTION

citizens who control in military matters of the na-
tion, as they do in other important national affairs,
to “know thyself.”

The popular belief that the United States is free
of opportunities for invasion is all “tommy rot,”
if allowable to use an expression that we think more
apt for our purpose than elegant in style. Briefly,
and to the point no nation offers more numerous
opportunities for invasion by a foreign nation than
does the United States whenever cause therefor is
sufficiently great to induce preparations by any
other nation that will beat aside our resistance on
the sea. The world is a grand stage whereon are
many players. In the game of cards called “poker,”
the straight flush, headed by the ace, is occasionally
held by one player. It wins. In the course of time
no one knows when or how soon, the family of na-
tions may get to playing at cards, and beyond the
sea, perhaps, will be found a “full hand” against our
three “aces” the Navy, Coast fortifications, and
the Militia.

Our mobile Army is so ridiculously small in the
World’s War game that it amounts to nothing better
than a discard! What will the Militia do under
circumstances when, in the game of War, as in the
game of poker, there is a call for show of hands the
very time in the game when ” I. O. U.” will not have
the value of coin? Rush into the jaws of death?
Let all who believe in the value of Militia for war

xii

INTRODUCTION

turn to the preface you have chosen for Volume II.
We quote it here, to save the trouble of doing so :

“Regular troops alone are equal to the exigencies
of modern ^war, as well for defence as offence, and
when a substitute is attempted, it must prove
illusory and ruinous.

” No Militia will ever acquire the habits necessary
to resist a regular force. The firmness requisite for
the real business of fighting is only to be attained
by constant course of discipline and service.

“I have never yet been a witness to a single in-
stance that can justify a different opinion, and it is
most earnestly to be wished that the liberties of
America may no longer be trusted, in a material
degree, to so precarious a defence.

“WASHINGTON.”

It is with no lack of appreciation of the military
enthusiasm and skin-deep experience which the
organized Militia of the country has that we quote
this passage from Washington, for every little effort
helps. But who does not know that the sentiment
for cohesion that enables the Militia organizations
to ” keep in the swim ” is chiefly the social sort rather
than the sterner sentiment duty to the Nation?
So, as Washington’s observation had reference par-
ticularly to the condition of soldiery that results
from a levy of volunteers, under our present system
of raising armies for war purposes, we are justified

xiii

INTRODUCTION

in saying that his words are as true to-day as when
penned. They were true then and will be true until
the time when the author of the sentiment shall be
no longer affectionately regarded as a man who
would not deceive his countrymen; as one who
wisely advised of future dangers out of his great
experience and his true appreciation of the natures
of men.

We do not find that Washington was an advocate
of coast-defence fortifications to anything like the
fad of to-day. The few he had were useful then, just
as the many we have now are useful, to divert the
enemy to wayside landings not very hard to find
then, nor impossible to find now.

So when the enemy attempts to invade the United
States he will land, for such is the power of nations
now for the offensive, unless the Almighty who hath
power greater than he to control the waves of the
sea opposes relentlessly his efforts; and when that
time comes, as come it may, nothing short of mobile
armies, trained to discipline in service, can prevent
an enemy’s occupation of lines of supply and, as a
result of such occupation, quick capitulation of
any city of first rank in the United States, plus its
fortified places; this, too, the fate of any such city
in the world. Why, therefore, divert more millions
of money to ineffectual use when we have enough
coast-defence works now ? Possibly one excuse for
further construction may be, as was said by a military
genius interested in the defence of his country:

xiv

INTRODUCTION

“Coast-defence fortifications served well two pur-
poses :

“r. To preserve, and make progress from ex-
perience, the science of manufacturing large guns.

“2. For testing the skill of military engineers.”

When we arrive at the conclusion that it is a mis-
take to rely upon untrained, undisciplined men for
serious war operations (all our war history can be
cited in proof that it is so), we have not far to look
and find what seems to be the popular reason for
such reliance since the Nation has become a grand
factor in the world. It is because the Nation is
wonderfully rich in natural resources and artificially
made wealth so great a Crcesus that it can afford
to pay, at all events it seems willing to pay, for the
extravagance in money and life which follows on
occasions of war and left-handed business, as reg-
ularly as night follows day.

The popular belief in our country that money is the
controlling factor in war needs to be materially
shocked and greatly modified. The better senti-
ment would be and it is a national harm that it is
not so now all men and women in love with
military service, obligatory in peace and war!

The shades of night are not yet so dense as to shut
from memory the recollection that certain states,
having small treasury accounts and poor credit,
fought near to bankruptcy wealth much superior to
theirs. Thus, an example at our door where great

xv

INTRODUCTION

wealth was no scarecrow to men of courage when
long-standing causes (real or fancied) for war arose.

No Hague Conference could have stopped that
conflict, based, as it was, on limitation in opposition
to expansion of the rights of a race.

The second part of your Book I treats of problems
provocative of war so evidently within the realm of
exalted wisdom for correct solution that the citizen
and state legislator will serve his country best by
following the advice of statesmen charged with that
vision which comprehendeth the American universe
and its glory.

The best way to determine whether an apple is
sweet or sour is to eat it. Only thus can one de-
cide what at sight is a doubtful condition of the
apple.

The several chapters of Book I we regard as in
the category of ” gradual approaches ” to obtain view
of the Apple to be found in Book II, which the
reader should attentively examine and determine
the flavor of, through close study of the text and
maps.

It is quite probable, because of the very general
indifference throughout the country for things
military, which serves excellently to heighten the
ignorance of the purpose for and value of armies
to nations, many readers will find the apple to have
a neutral flavor, and in the valor of their ignorance
will answer your well -prepared practical demon-

INTRODUCTION

stration of our actual and possible military situations
in their usual way: “Just let ’em try it and you’ll see
what we can do.”

The statesmen and the technically informed
will more likely pass in review one of Napoleon’s
maxims: “The frontiers of states are either large
rivers or chains of mountains or deserts. Of all
these obstacles to the march of an army, the most
difficult to overcome is the desert; mountains come
next, and broad rivers occupy the third place.”

We can think of nothing better suited with which
to end this letter than the following quotation from
a page of your book: “Nations, being but composite
individuals, all that which moves or is part of an
individual, in a larger sense, moves or is part of a
nation.

“To free a nation from error is to enlighten the
individual, and only to the degree that the individual
will be receptive of truth can a nation be free from
that vanity which ends with national ruin.”
Yours truly,

ADNA R. CHAFFEE, .

INTRODUCTION

BY

MAJOR-GENERAL J. P. STORY,

U. S. A., RETIRED

” ‘”THE Valor of Ignorance ” is the striking title
1 of a most remarkable book by Homer Lea.
The title, however, does not indicate the scope of
the undertaking, which is a military work that should
be carefully read by every intelligent and patriotic
citizen of the United States.

The book consists of two parts the first made up
of philosophical deductions, founded upon the un-
changing elements of human nature as established
by historical precedent.

Man in his evolution from primitive savagery has
followed laws as immutable as the law of gravitation.
No nation has long been permitted to enjoy the
blessings of peace, unless able to safeguard such
blessings by force of arms. The richer a nation may
be in material resources, the more likely it has been
to fall a prize to a more militant people. The con-
tinuous enjoyment of peace and national indepen-

xix

INTRODUCTION

dence has always cost dear, but is well worth the
price.

A few idealists may have visions that, with ad-
vancing civilization, war and its dreadful horrors
will cease. Civilization has not changed human
nature. The nature of man makes war inevitable.
Armed strife will not disappear from the earth until
after human nature changes. Words extolling
peace are worthless for national defence, and a too
clamorous gospel of peace may paralyze the best
efforts to meet our military necessities.

The most persistent lovers of peace, since the his-
torical period, have been the Chinese. China is now
reaping the logical reward of “peace at any price.”
It is a subject nation, its destiny controlled by
alien Manchus, and its fairest possessions ravished
from its littoral.

The most Christian nations of Europe have for
several centuries, in Asia and Africa, exacted tribute
as mercilessly as did the robber barons of the Middle
Ages.

A Century of Dishonor shows that the United
States have seized from an unwilling people nearly
every foot of their soil.

The United States, within ten years, have ruth-
lessly suppressed in the Philippines an insurrection
better justified than was our Revolution of glorious
memory. This insurrection was inspired, from the
Philippine point of view, by a passionate aspiration
to be freed from the domination of a people alien in

xx

INTRODUCTION

language, customs, and religion; yet it was impos-
sible for the United States, in honor, or in the inter-
ests of humanity, to avoid the action taken.

The second part of Mr. Lea’s book consists in
making a logical application of the principles de-
duced in the first part to the United States under its
present conditions. If the data published by Mr.
Lea be correct, and there seems to be no reason to
question its substantial accuracy, Germany could,
if it has sea supremacy in the Atlantic, land within
two weeks two hundred and fifty thousand troops
on our eastern coast.

Japan now has sea supremacy in the Pacific. In
the event of war, that supremacy could not be
challenged until after we had constructed a suf-
ficient fleet of colliers. Japan can within three
months land on the Pacific Coast four hundred
thousand troops, and seize, with only insignificant
resistance, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, and Los
Angeles.

A barrier of mountains and deserts makes the
defence of the Pacific Slope an easy matter against
attack from the East, and only from that direction
could the United States hope to recapture its lost
territory.

Never has there been on this earth so rich a prize,
now so helpless to defend itself, as the Philippine
and Hawaiian Islands, the Panama Canal, Alaska,
and the States of the Pacific coast.

Mr. Lea has lived in the Orient and carefully

xxi

INTRODUCTION

studied it. He sees clearly the menace of the
“Yellow Peril,” yet it is less than sixty years since
the United States went to the uncharted shores of
Japan with an olive branch in one hand and in the
other a naked sword. Then was removed the lid
of Pandora’s box with the enthusiastic approval of
the American people.

It is very remarkable that the author should
have so just a conception of the true value of coast
fortifications in the general defence of the country.
The sole function of such fortifications is to defend
a port against direct naval attack. Against an
enemy powerful enough to land, the coast fort
has no defensive value, and may even prove an
element of weakness, as did Port Arthur to Rus-
sia.

Not the least of Mr. Lea’s service to the country
is in his republication of the solemn warnings of
George Washington against the employment of
militia in war. Within the last one hundred and
twenty -five years disaster and humiliation to our
arms have fully confirmed Washington’s judgment.

The system of organization in the militia is the
cancer which destroys its usefulness. It is futile to
hope the militia may by a change of name escape
the curse of its inherent inefficiency.

Mr. Lea shows clearly that we are confronted by
conditions which may imperil our national security,
peace, and welfare. No candid mind, who carefully
reads Mr. Lea’s book, can draw any other conclusion.

INTRODUCTION

It is to be hoped this book may arouse a public
sentiment throughout the country which will lead
to a full and serious consideration of a problem
which should no longer be ignored.

J. P. STORY,
Major-General, U. S. A., Retired.

BOOK I
THE DECLINE OF MILITANCY

AND THE

CONTROL OF
THE WESTERN HEMISPHERE

” . . . As a principle in which the rights and interests
of the United States are involved . , . the American
continents . . . are henceforth not to be considered
as subject for future colonization by any European
power. . . . We owe it, therefore, to candor and to the
amicable relations existing between the United States
and those powers to declare that we should consider any
attempt on their part to extend their system to any
portion of this hemisphere as dangerous to our peace
and safety. MONROE.”

THE
VALOR OF IGNORANCE

THE diversity of man’s beliefs is as wide as the
uncounted millions that have been or are now
cluttered upon earth; enduring no longer than a
second of time, yet in that brief and broken moment
doubting, affirming, denying. It is this unstable,
widening difference in the viewpoint of man that has
filled the world with so much contention and error;
the setting up and tearing down of so many transi-
tory ideals, the making of fallible laws, constitutions,
and gods.

Truth, outside of the exact sciences, can only be
approximated. The degree to which that approxi-
mation approaches completeness depends upon the
exactitude of empirical knowledge and freedom
from error in deductions, which means, principally,
a freedom from antipathies or attachments.

Under such limitations we are to write this book.
So the reader, for the time being, must also put

3

THE VALOR OF IGNORANCE

aside his hates and desires, since that which we are
about to write will arouse his passions, support or
rage according to his view-point. If he is not equi-
table his prejudices will distort, these unwelcome
truths and leave undiscovered the fount of their
bitterness.

A man who wishes to be just or seeks after per-
fection has no immutable sentiments of his own,
but will make, as far as possible, the mind of man-
kind his possession. Calmly he looks upon the
world; upon all its transitory institutions, and his
passions are aroused in no manner. He preserves
for all mankind the same regard and consideration.

The just perusal of any work demands such a state
of mind, and requires a temporary obliteration of
such preconceived ideas as have, through their un-
disturbed sway over his mind, become prejudices or
attachments.

In this book many conditions may be met that
will appear impossible or unbelievable, since they are
contrary to what has heretofore been held up as
perfection. When certain beliefs, though false or
dangerous, pass to the stage of national fetichism
they often become invulnerable even to the shafts
of truth itself.

Of the few virtues that appertain to or are emana-
tions of mankind in the aggregate, patriotism is fore-
most in being universally impersonated and put to a
wide variety of uses ; turned to all degrees of roguery.
When it becomes a national fetich, virtue goes out

4

THE VALOR OF IGNORANCE

of it. Under its borrowed cloak crimes are not only
committed, but nations betrayed and given over to
pillage; hence the truth of the old statement, that
in patriotism rogues find their final refuge.

Besides being the subterfuge of rogues, patriotism
is divisible into three forms : two that are false and
common; one that is true and rare. The com-
monest of the accepted forms, also the most errone-
ous, is to be found in uncompromising and general
contempt for all nations, together with an inveterate
prejudice against some one of them. The next or-
dinary and false form shows itself in vainglorious-
ness, whether over great deeds or greater crimes;
the condoning of national faults or their concealment
by the exaltation of this fetich worship.

True patriotism would rot away if its exemplifica-
tion lay only in contempt or prejudice toward others.

To inspire pride it is not necessary to arouse
hatred.

In peace, and not in war, is the time to judge the
worth of a man’s or a nation’s patriotism. Those
who are indifferent to their country’s welfare in
peace will be of no use to it in time of war: while
those who make it a practice to rob the public ex-
chequer of its virtues, as well as gold, or to condone
such thievery, are, during warfare, so delinquent in
patriotism as not to be removed from the sphere of
negative treason.

Patriotism in its purity is a political virtue, and
as such is the antithesis of commercial vanity. To

THE VALOR OF IGNORANCE

boast of a nation’s wealth, under the delusion that it
is patriotic, is to commit a crime against patriotism.

To boast does not liquidate the debt of duty.

As patriotism does not hibernate in the time of
peace, it is by no means difficult to discover the true
patriot from the false. He is made noticeable by
two characteristics causing him to stand out from
among other men. And though he may be humble
and unknown, yet these two virtues make him pre-
eminent even among those who are vain of their
honors and wealth.

To die for one’s country, while not less patriotic
than to live for it, is by no means as beneficial. But
it is in this proposal to die in battle that cowards,
rogues and treasonable men find subterfuge befitting
their evil practices. When, in peace, men postpone
their patriotic activity to a time of war, their pro-
crastination is only indicative of their worthlessness.

As it is impossible after death to distinguish the
coward from the hero, so in national defeat dis-
tinctions cannot be made as to the cause of it. The
world and the victor take no note of post-bellum
explanations. For a nation to suffer defeat through
unpreparedness is, to all practical purposes, as bad
as though it were through cowardice on the field.
In consequence, the man who opposes, in time of
peace, suitable preparations for war, is as unpatriotic
and detrimental to the nation as he who shirks his
duty or deserts his post in time of battle.

To those who have within themselves the spirit of

6

THE VALOR OF IGNORANCE

true patriotism, this book will appeal with a passion
peculiarly its own, for it is not other than an emana-
tion of their own thoughts. To those in whom it
arouses wrath we would suggest that if they will look
to the origin of their feelings they will find that what
they have heretofore regarded as patriotism is not
even the sham of it.

The third matter of importance that the reader
should bear in mind as he makes his way through
this book, attendant with many doubts and perhaps
much passion, is not to set up the transitory fabrica-
tions of man against conditions that are eternal
because such ephemeral works exist in his time.

National existence is not a haphazard passage of
a people from an unknown beginning to an unfore-
seen end. It is not an erratic phantasm of dreams
that has fallen upon the sleeping consciousness of a
world; but is, on the other hand, a part of life itself,
governed by the same immutable laws.

No state is destroyed except through those avert-
ible conditions that mankind dreads to contemplate.
Yet nations prefer to evade and perish rather than
to master the single lesson taught by the washing-
away of those that have gone down before them.
In their indifference and in the valor of their igno-
rance they depart, together with their monuments
and constitutions, their vanities and gods.

II

IN the works of many philosophers, the birth,
growth and decay of nations is made analogous
to the life history of individuals, wherein they pass
from the cradle to manhood, expanding in intellect,
accumulating vigor and strength until, in due time,
they grow old, die and are forgotten, down in the
deep, vast ossuary of time.

This similarity in the lives of men and nations is in
actuality true, although it should not be precisely so.
As the body of man is made up of volitionless mole-
cules allowing the natural course of age, disease and
decay to destroy it, the body politic of a nation is an
aggregation of rational beings, atoms supposedly
possessed of the ability to reason, and who should,
if they are obedient to laws governing national
growth and deterioration, prolong the existence of
a nation far beyond the years and greatness ordina-
rily allotted to it.

The analogy, however, contains this melancholy
truth: that only so long as a man or nation con-
tinues to grow and expand do they nourish the
vitality that wards off disease and decay. This
continuous growth and expansion in human beings

8

THE VALOR OF IGNORANCE

is their childhood, youth and manhood; the gradual
cessation of it, old age or disease; its stoppage
death. But among nations, though the progress and
consummation are identical, we take but little note
of it and name it not at all.

As physical vigor constitutes health in the in-
dividual, so does it among nations, and it is ex-
emplified by strength among them as in mankind.
A brilliant mind, a skilful hand has nothing to do
with the health or duration of life in the individual,
so neither has mental brilliancy compositely taken,
as in a nation of scholars, anything to do with the
prolongation of national existence.

The duration of life in an individual is determined
by his power to combat against disease, age and his
fellow-men, resulting in the gradual elimination of
those possessed of least combative power and the
survival of those in whom these qualities are best
conserved. So it is with nations. So it has ever
been from the first dawn, when protoplasmic cells
floated about in a pallid ether devouring one an-
other, and so in the last twilight shall these same
cells, evoluted even beyond what man now conceives,
pass into endless night.

The beginnings of political life are not hidden ab-
solutely from us, and though there is no exactitude
in our knowledge, we are nevertheless cognizant of
the fact that at one time, when primitive man lived
in continuous, individual strife, there occurred,
somewhere in the sombre solitudes of a preglacial

forest, what has proven to be to mankind a mo-
mentous combat. It was when the brawniest
paleolithic man had killed or subdued all those who
fought and roamed in his immediate thickets that he
established the beginning of man’s domination over
man, and with it the beginnings of social order and its
intervals of peace. When the last blow of his crude
axe had fallen and he saw about him the dead and
submissive, he beheld the first nation; in himself
the first monarch; in his stone axe the first law,
and by means of it the primitive process by which,
through all succeeding ages, nations were to be
created or destroyed.

Wars Victory a nation. Wars Destruc-
tion dissolution. Such is the melancholy epitome
of national existence, and such has it been from the
beginning of human association until to-day. From
the time, six thousand years past, when the wild
highlander rolled down from the mountains of Elam
and moulded with sword and brawn the Turanian
shepherds into the Chaldean Empire, until within
the last decade, when the Samurai of Nippon rose out
of their islands in the Eastern Sea and carved for
themselves a new empire on the Continent of Asia,
there has been no cessation nor deviation from this
inexorable law governing the formation and extinc-
tion of national entities.

All kingdoms, empires, and nations that have
existed on this earth have been born out of the
womb of war and the delivery of them has occurred

in the pain and labor of battle. So, too, have these
same nations, with the same inevitable certainty,
perished on like fields amid the wreckage and cin-
ders of their defenceless possessions.

As physical vigor represents the strength of man
in his struggle for existence, in the same sense
military vigor constitutes the strength of nations:
ideals, laws and constitutions are but temporary
effulgences, and are existent only so long as this
strength remains vital. As manhood marks the
height of physical vigor among mankind, so the
militant successes of a nation mark the zenith of its
physical greatness. The decline of physical strength
in the individual is significant of disease or old age,
culminating in death. In the same manner deteri-
oration of military strength or militant capacity in
a nation marks its decline; and, if there comes not a
national renascence of it, decay will set in and the
consummation shall not be other than that sombre
end which has overtaken the innumerable nations
now no more, but who, in the vanity of their great-
ness, could conjecture the end of time yet not the
downfall of their fragile edifices.

An analysis of the history of mankind shows that
from the fifteenth century before Christ until the
present time, a cycle of thirty-four hundred years,
there have been less than two hundred and thirty-
four years of peace. Nations succeeded one another
with monotonous similarity in their rise, decline and
fall. One and all of them were builded by archi-

ii

tects who were generals, masons who were soldiers,
trowels that were swords and out of stones that were
the ruins of decadent states. Their periods of great-
ness were entirely coincident with their military
prowess and with the expansion consequent upon it.

The zenith of these nations’ greatness was reached
when expansion ceased. As there is no stand-still
in the life of an individual, so neither is there in the
life of a nation. National existence is governed by
this invariable law: that the boundaries of political
units are never, other than for a moment of time,
stationary they must either expand or shrink.
It is by this law of national expansion and shrink-
age that we mark the rise and decline of nations.

Expansion culminates, or, in other words, nations
begin to decline with the subordination of national
to individual supremacy. When the debasement of
this formative capacity of empires is complete, the
state is given over to devitalizing elements social
and economic parasites. It is in these, valorous with
fat pride, that the nation takes its final and in-
glorious departure, as did its predecessors, forever
from mankind.

The hunt for old empires has now become the pas-
time of solitary men who find on the willow-fringed
banks of rivers only a mud mound and a silence;
in desert sands, a mummy and a pyramid; by the
shores of seas, a temple and a song. The shattered
signs of kingdoms are but few, for most of the van-
ished empires have in their departure remitted to

12

THE VALOR OF IGNORANCE

posterity neither broken marbles, teopali, Alhambras,
nor Druid stones. In the manner of nomads they
have gone away and left no sign of habitation in the
sands behind them.

Theorists, in contradiction of this view, with un-
conscious superficiality bring China out of the mists
and mystery of her antiquity and present her as a
nation created and enduring in endless peace. Such
observations, unfortunately, only betray the profun-
dity of their ignorance. The law of national ex-
pansion or shrinkage has governed the development
of the Chinese Empire with the same inexorable
invariability as it has that of nations in the West.

Not only does the history of the political develop-
ment of China resemble the history of the remainder
of mankind, but has, perhaps, within itself the sol-
emn prophecy of the world’s political future. China,
from the obscure hour of its deep antiquity until
modern times, has worked out its own advancement
and civilization in no way benefited by other civiliza-
tions of the world. Yet China, in its political evo-
lution and expansion, has been subject to all those
elements, those periods of physical vigor and de-
terioration, such as have controlled the destinies of
the separate successive nations that have thundered
so loudly in the Occident. China, like every great
empire, is made up of the cleavage and multipli-
cation of political units, alternately decadent and
renascent through the unnumbered years of its ex-
istence.

THE VALOR OF IGNORANCE

When the brawling Elamite mountaineers came
down from their high places and founded the
Chaldean Empire on the plains of Mesopotamia,
there were, in what is now the Chinese Empire, a
number of political units surrounded on the north,
south, and west by less civilized peoples. The state
upon which the present empire was founded was a
small kingdom on the loess plains of Shensi. From
this primitive state has been developed the vast
empire we now watch crumbling and falling away
from its former greatness in a manner wherein time
is less the vandal than the childish vanity of man.

The cycles of decay and renascence that mark the
development of this race have, in cause and effect,
been homogeneous, though thousands of years have
separated a portion of them. This homogeneous
expansion can be compared to the still waters of a
lake where a cast stone causes to extend outward
in widening sphere a series of ripples with inter-
vening spaces. In this manner has been marked the
evolution of the Chinese race from the time a small
splinter of them was cast thither by the hand of
Panku. Each ripple marks a cycle of development,
each depression a period of decadence, similar in
every characteristic except their widening sphere.

The inexorable law of combat has governed in all
its various phases the development of the Chinese
Empire. Its political evolution, in a manner no
different from that of European nations, has been
through the battle-field. The edifice of its greatness

14

THE VALOR OF IGNORANCE

has been builded by no other than those who have
fought its wars. Of the twenty-five dynasties that
have ruled over China, each was founded by a soldier
and each in due time heard from surrounding armies
the melancholy taps of its approaching end.

The reasons for and the conditions contributing to
the long continuance of the Chinese Empire, while
other kingdoms almost as great have survived the
erosion of time but a generation in comparison to
the ages through which it has passed and grown
great, are apparently unknown in the West. The
beliefs ordinarily expressed have nothing whatever
to do with it. They are fanciful, speculative or
otherwise, but worthless. The Chinese as a people,
their laws or customs, have had nothing to do with
the preservation of their nation against the wearing
away by time or that wilfuller element man.

The preservation of the Chinese race for these
thousands of years has been due solely to the nat-
ural environment wherein the race began its na-
tional growth; an environment ramparted by in-
accessible mountains, moated by uninhabitable
deserts or seas as shipless as they were vast. On
the north and northwest are the deserts of Gobi
and Shamo; beyond these, the impenetrable forests
of Siberia and steppes where rests a gloom that is
white. On the southwest is the Roof of the World
and the blue-black gorges of the Himalayas. On
the south, jungles and the Indian Ocean. On the
east is the vast and lonely Pacific, a purple solitude

THE VALOR OF IGNORANCE

through which only a few years ago the ships of
man found their way.

Until the nineteenth century China was as secure
in her isolation as if illimitable space intervened be-
tween her borders and the nations of Europe. To
the rest of mankind China was only the mythical
Kingdom of Cathay, situated somewhere on the
jewelled banks of Eastern seas.

The Chinese, therefore, and their system of govern-
ment have had nothing to do with the preservation
of their race. Isolation alone has been responsible
for its continuation through the storms of more than
fifty centuries. Had the Celestial Kingdom been
surrounded by other powerful nationalities, as were
European and Central Asian Empires, ancient and
modern, it would have gone down in due time as
they did and now be but a memory hidden away in
the old tales of the tribes of man.

A video produced by the Kamehameha Kapalama Advanced Video Productions.

he following article appeared in the Hawaiian newspaper – Monday, May 28, 1894:

…even after fixing it to read upright, it didn’t stay…….but the point is that “The trustees are directed, also, to “devote a portion of each year’s income to the support and education of orphans and others indigent circumstances, giving the preference to Hawaiians of pure or part aboriginal blood.” In carrying out the provision of the will, the trustees have opened the school thus far only to Hawaiians, believing such to be the intention of the benevolent founder; but the terms of the will do not exclude other nationalities from the enjoyment of its privileges, if Hawaiians do not chose (choose) to avail themselves of the advantages offered to them.”

This if clause gives reason for all Hawaiians of pure or part aboriginal blood to sue…….dare anyone make the move to do a class action suit? Kaiu is starting one on the Kaneohe side……where are the leaders………….Hui Pu, where are you? otherwise, every single Hawaiian of aboriginal blood can sue individually. …..better us than Congress tapping into the Estates funds via the Goldman-Sachs stocks investments by Bishop Estates………appears they use the trust(s) for their fringe benefits….. hmmm……..another reason why they’re pushing the Akaka Bill….so the Trust(s) cannot be sued!

amelia,
On the issue of Kahana:
“Gov. Linda Lingle vetoed the bill last year, calling it “special-interest legislation” that would allow the residents to stay in the area even if there were illegal activities. Department of Land and Natural Resources Director Laura Thielen also spoke out against the bill.”

this is so typical on the War on Drugs campaign as in fictional assertions and by Dingle the governor. always “enforcement’ as the bottom line. Always the first sin mentality

hi Kaohi,

the article found by researcher Shane Lee says it all……….the Premeditation article………well, I found it at the Library …………this basically negates all that Lezbo Lingle, Thielen, et. als…..even the Akaka Bill…. Tane talks about that captured phenomenon…….and one of the ways to undo this is to educate the masses, not only our kanaka maoli but absolutely everyone that we reach out to………….here it is…also will be posting another opposition to the Akaka Bill as well shortly:

aloha nui.

p.s. am appalled over our kanaka maoli on the beaches and disturbed about what happened…..thank you for being there Kaohi…will be out to help too after these important projects are completed…which is soon….

Greetings,

My name is Amelia Gora, a Royal person, one of the true Trustees of the Liliuokalani Trust/ Queen Liliuokalani Trust, etc., One of the Representatives of the Hawaiian Genealogy Society, Acting Liaison of the Royal Families House of Nobles for the Hawaiian Kingdom, a descendant of members of the original House of Nobles in the Hawaiian Kingdom and hereby document continued oppositions to the Akaka Bill……I maintain that Congress and the President does not have the authority over our Hawaiian Islands/Hawaiian archipelago which is well out of the 3-12 mile range of the contiguous United States declared by the U.S. Supreme Court Justices.

Intense research by others has been made and my research extends over a period of 30+ years reviewing the history(ies), facts, evidence of Pirates on the high seas. Intense genealogy research has been made for 21+ years, Legal research for 12+ years.

Genocide activities have been documented, historical identity thefts, racketeering, conspiracies, piracies, criminal concerted efforts by many treasonous, conspirators made up of former Hawaiian subjects who were actually Americans, paid off others, etc. has been documented.

Admission of some of the crimes have been recorded and signed by U.S. President Clinton through See Public Law 103-150 – Admission of Crimes against the Queen, subjects of the Hawaiian Kingdom, a neutral, non-violent, friendly nation.

The facts found by researcher Shane Lee, and myself identifies the Premeditation by the U.S. Congress, President Benjamin Harrison and concerted others in assuming our Hawaiian Islands prior to the criminal dethronement of our Queen Liliuokalani who was under stress, duress, coercion, usurpation, etc.

It appears that all claims made by Pirates/conspirators including those who perpetuate all governments in our Hawaiian Islands including the current entity State of Hawaii is illegal, have no standing, along with the U.S. in our Hawaiian archipelago whose Congress mastered the efforts to claim a neutral, friendly nation since the 1850’s and documented below. The following evidence was found by Shane Lee on the NEW YORK TIMES website “PEARL HARBOR COALING STATION” dated January 9, 1893 and has been also pulled up from newspaper records recently and in the attached files:

http://query.nytimes.com/mem/archive-free/pdf?_r=1&res=9F0CE6DC…

Congress has called Queen Liliuokalani and her 40,000 subjects in 1893 “NIGGERS” along with the Press, etc. A total of 3,000 Americans, friends and paid followers were the minority group, the documented conspirators/ criminal deviants /TERRORISTS, an updated term used in letters to President William Clinton time period, President George W. Bush, and foreign born President Barack Obama.

FRAUD is documented on Alii/Chiefs and Chiefesses probates.

FRAUD is documented due to the mysterious loss of the laws made during Kamehameha III’s period and republished by conspirators/TERRORISTS AFTER the wrongful dethronement of Queen Liliuokalani.

FRAUD is documented on Court Cases….many entered by my own ancestors. Examples: John Kapena and Antonio da Silveira, who was married to one of the wives of Kamehameha II – Liholiho.

Kamehameha had 10 wives….i descend from his children KAOLEIOKU, KANEKAPOLEI, MAULI/MAULILI ….i descend from Kamehameha’s siblings: KALANIKAULIHIWAKAMA PIIPII, KALEIWOHI, KELIIMAIKAI, and KIILAWEAU.

I have the same blood as All the Royals and Sovereigns in Hawaii….Kamehameha thru Kamehameha V, King Lunalilo, King Kalakaua and Queen Liliuokalani. There are other descendants and heirs. Research is incomplete.

Due to the evidence/facts found that Kamehameha descendants exists – Royal Persons exist, not subject to the laws (Reference: Victoria Kamamalu’s Probate #2409, First Circuit Court, as stated by nephew of Kamehameha, Mataio Kekuanaoa my ancestor), and that I do not grant all of you: Congress, entity State of Hawaii, Courts in Hawaii, President who has since the time of the usurpation of Queen Liliuokalani in 1893 has died, all others having no claims, any/all jurisdiction on, over, under, around our lands and am hereby documenting oppositions forevermore, I maintain for others and myself, my families ownership of the Crown Lands, wrongfully claimed ceded lands by Conspirators/ Criminal Deviants/Terrorists (updated term) who have criminally assumed as if theirs our lands in a 3,000+ year old society with Royal Persons who are Sovereigns existing since Kamehameha formed the Monarchy government in 1810 and presently 2010.

This post will be placed in various forums and websites for the world to see.

Hawaii, a solvent Nation, whose Queen was wrongfully usurped, who was under stress, duress, usurpation, etc. was conspired against by traitors of the Hawaiian Kingdom/ Americans, Masons/Freemasons – secret society(ies) whose purpose was to break down Monarchial/Monarchical governments worldwide, deviously, criminally, wrongfully backed by the United States, England/Great Britain, and the bankers (Morgan bankers, Bank of England, International bankers) who breached the Law of Nations, severed treaties/broke friendship treaties with the Hawaiian Kingdom as stated and documented by Queen Liliuokalani.

Kamehameha’s descendants/heirs exist, King Kalakaua’s descendants/heirs exist, and Queen Liliuokalani’s descendants/heirs exist and maintain ownership of the Royal Family(ies) lands, including the Crown Lands which is covered under Kamehameha III’s direction under the lands to his “heirs and successors”. Our families also maintain claims to the “Hawaiian Government Lands from the time of our ancestor Kamehameha, and Kamehameha III – Kauikeouli who was the father of adopted children: James Young Kanehoa, John Young Jr./Keoni Ana, Grace Young/Kamaikui, Fanny Young/Fanny Kekela, Gina/Gini Young/Gini Lahilahi, Hueu Davis, Kale Davis, and Peke Davis (my ancestor)” and maintains the “Rights of Tenants” not native tenant rights for our Hawaiian aboriginal/kanaka maoli as well.

The United States falsely claims Pearl Harbor through a fraud deed to two (2) deceased ancestors by King David Kalakaua who had no claims to John Young’s, Isaac Davis families, which was included in a court case No. 92-2435-07 State of Hawaii vs. Robert Kalani Uichi Kihune, Ronald Dale Libkuman, Constance Hee Lau, David Paul Coon, and Francis Ahloy Keala, Interim Trustees under the Will of the Estate of Bernice Pauahi Bishop- see the countless/ other messages sent previously.

As a result of this false claim to Pearl Harbor, etc., hundreds of thousands of innocents have died needlessly………Warmongering Scoundrels, defective people, criminals of the United States, supported by England/Great Britain, bankers (Morgan bankers, Bank of England, International bankers, etc.) existed then and perpetuate the crimes of their predecessors….continuing to wrongfully plunder upon innocents in solvent countries for their lands and resources, pirating more Nations since our Hawaiian archipelago/Hawaiian Islands/Hawaiian Kingdom, and now other solvent Nations for lands, resources, wealth by documented bankrupt countries, the United States, interdependent with England/Great Britain, Morgan bankers, Bank of England, International bankers which formed the United Nations to assist in Plundering Upon others and divvy up the resources of target nations today. (It was the U.S., England, and the bankers (Morgan bankers, Bank of England, International bankers, etc.) who departed from the Law of Nations and formed the United Nations with support by the Rockefellers, the permanent Corporation and Parent Heads of the Standard Oil Company, a monopoly protected by the military, which evolved into the Exxon Oil Company gifting land for the United Nations, etc.

For want of oil, the Middle East has been criminally plundered upon based on a claimed terrorist plot by specific leaders (Saddam Hussein, Bin Ladin, etc.) which were schooled by the CIA/Central Intelligence Agency of the U.S. due to implosion activities planned by the U.S., Corporations during George W. Bush Presidential term. George W. Bush, Candoleeza Rice, Dick Cheney, et. als. all hailed from various oil companies who were under the umbrella corporation Exxon.

The Premeditation issues documented and shown above is one of the many evidences which shows that the U.S. is indeed a belligerent occupier, an organization of Pirates on the High Seas persevering to maintain deceptions, propaganda, criminal racketeering efforts/claims through the Akaka Bill whose authors are descendants of documented conspirators/ treasonous persons named Thomas Akaka and descendant Daniel Akaka, and bankrupt banker Daniel Inouye, et. als.

The Akaka Bill along with claims to annexation, etc. simply cannot be, legally, lawfully, etc.

Oppositions to the Nuclear Regulatory Agency, etc. to Depleted Uranium/DU use in our Hawaiian private properties has been made over time: Pohakuloa, Makua, Schofield are part of the Private Properties of Kamehameha’s descendants heirs, Kamehameha III’s “heirs and successors” and I, Amelia Gora, deny that the criminal entity State of Hawaii is a successor and maintain that they are truly documented Pirates assuming, capitalizing off of stolen monies of our families, our government, etc.

Eviction notices for the U.S. military has been served through the entity State of Hawaii’s attorney general, on the web to U.S. President Obama, entity State of Hawaii Governor Lingle, et. als. Date set December 31, 2010.

Rents and Leases of 500 Trillion dollars in gold coin, per year retroactive to 1893 has been sent to the above parties (U.S. President Obama, entity State of Hawaii Governor Lingle, Attorney General, et. als.) many times, reminders sent through e-mails, etc.

Much mahalo for being there too Amelia,

Lihue is cantaminated with DU, and I hope this story of a child born with congenial birth defects are exposed. But, mother is still in shock. She was invited to tour the area and at that time she was pregnant. Hopefully, Pono can get hold of the film and post the before the bulldozers of Lihue.

The archiolgist for OHA was trying to include Lihue into his/HA’s TCP Paradigm in his presentation and I knew beforhand about the child born with birth defect unbeknown to the mother the dangers of Schofield cantamination of DU. It was trucked to Waianae and on up to Makua.

I was talking at the hip and at the top of my head. I think more at the hip this time.

Kipuka…”It also has to be in line with international laws of occupation line with federal language and law.”
Focused point from Thomas Joseph lenchanko, Hawaiian National.

So, OHA needs to go back and start all over again from the middle before the Procurement process which they put out into the meeting happens. Why, because if the architecture stamp goes on than we stuck with the military and KuKaniloko which brings into play’birthing’ their way. The fricken Native Hawaiian Veterans would love to have a political handle on this human conditioning .. for their..pleasure anytime-anyplace–slam bam thank you mam type of good times. Assholes!!!

Walter Heen was in the audience and I can remember the days of Kahoolawe and the fricken consent decree. I had a full on argument with the archaelogist on Kahoolawe at Kealaikahiki-Honukania in 1979 and that situation never got resolved until Sol Kahoohalahala followed through on it in 1992. We don’t have that time period to resovle this disaster.

But the archiologist wants Lihue, Kailua, Waikiki etc….absolute control over all ‘births’ on Oahu!!!!!

It’s all under Don Marin and the Kam III period of control. I think.

The stupid archiologist said “said not to be in use as a birthing area” I was wreched. He was just slamming at the Common Law and Hawaiian Usage. He also, shift the ‘diplomacy’ from ‘private’ to public thus turning all in attendees as the little people. Daughters of Hawaii, Hawaiian Civic Club and Ohana as well as the public into ‘little people.’

OHA cited over and over ‘Sites of Oahu’ which was a surprise for me, I’m not sure if that study is “TCP” model and if so is that secondary or first source?

My concern is the squabble between the temple of Lono and Kane…my energies don’t go that far and I have expressed this to Pono many times.

Pono, was tolerant of me that night and after he tried to comfort me ..being the fact that I felt like Bambi’s mom.

My husband was stationed at Schofield during the Vietnam War (Robert Mc Namara), and General Westmorland and his ‘Deer Hunter’ and ‘Apocalypse’ was pretty much what my two babies was born into. Unlike the Princess (Barbarian) Kaiulani that the young people have today.

You know, the Princesses of today that is much better–we just have to watch the white (Kenneth Emory type) archaeologist steal our ancestors bones and their land.

hi kukuna o ka la,

it is true about the Pirates Agreements made……….

for some reason everyone focuses on President Cleveland when the focus should be on U.S. President Benjamin Harrison who was in place during the Premeditation period, when Congress (with the President) giving out a standing order to take over the Hawaiian Kingdom eight (8) days before

briefly,

January 8. 1893 – U.S. Congress (with President Harrison) gave a standing order to take over the Hawaiian Kingdom.

January 9, 1893 – Pearl Harbor Coaling Station article printed in the NEW YORK TIMES.

January 15, 1893 – Troops/Bluecoats/Military came off the ship BOSTON causing stress, duress, usurpation, coercion for the Queen and 40,000 subjects.

January 17, 1893 – Queen Liliuokalani from a neutral, friendly, non-violent nation criminally usurped by treasonous persons/conspirators/pirates supported by their nation U.S., some from England/Great Britain, etc.

President Benjamin Harrison suggested that a ‘plebiscite’ be given to the people, with the intention that it would give an ‘appearance’ that the wrongful dethronement were the wishes of people.

President Benjamin Harrison was a former American Civil War General. His Vice President Morton was an expert in international money transfers and owned a bank which was sold to the Morgan bankers after he left office.

The United States, England/Great Britain’s investor was the Morgan bankers. Also, the Bank of England supported all Wars…………the U.S. and England/Great Britain were bankrupt…………… the stockholders of the Bank of England included past President George Washington and his wife Martha.

President Benjamin Harrison used his Executive Order to stop the passage of laws affecting crimes on the high seas………or piracy(ies) shortly before he left office…..

Harrison remained in office until March 1893………There were 6+ American Civil War Generals/ families in the Hawaiian Islands during the period……..

Cleveland had banker relatives who were going bankrupt…….Cleveland sold the Federal Reserves bank to private investors which resulted in an ongoing slave society for democracy thinking people/citizens in the U.S.

There’s lots more but one more point that is of issue: the replacement for recently sainted Father Damien DeVeuster/Father Damien was an American Civil War Officer who was given a salute by U.S. Navy ships passing the islands……………

Perhaps you could put a pirate’s patch on U.S. President Benjamin Harrison as well…..because he should not be forgotten…….

Pulled this off of another forum with info from Tane:

“Many have a misconception of the Kingdom laws and constitution or are ignorant of what it says. because of that, much is conjectured and reinterpreted till many get confused. The constitution lays out the eligibility , criteria, and process in electing a new monarch should the previous one fails to name a successor.”

“Today it’s a catch-22 but still can be worked out lawfully since the Hawaiian Kingdom still exists albeit under the U.S. Belligerent Occupation. Kauikeaouli established the Royal School for his hand-picked ali’i children to be eligibles for successor-ship of the throne should there be a vacancy whereby the previous monarch fails to name one.”

Note: Evidence of eligibles in the 1844 newspapers…..

and KAOLEIOKU’s descendants exist…………Kamehameha’s Oldest Son who had four (4) children: Pauahi (w) – mother of Ruth Keelikolani; Hanuna (k) – father of Kini (w); Hookahe (w); Poohina (w) and Kapule (k); Keola (k) – father of Alenoho (k), et. als.; and Konia (w) – mother of Bernice Pauahi.

Kamehameha III – Kauikeouli did hanai his cousins, the John Young, Isaac Davis families:

James Young Kanehoa – hanai children’s descendants exist; Keoni Ana/John Young Jr.; Grace Kamaikui – her children Hueu Davis (k) – many descendants exist; Kale Davis (w) – many descendants exist; and Peke Davis (w) many descendants exist; Fanny Kekela (w); and Gini Lahilahi – many descendants exist.

Many descendants exist today and many are connecting —had a meeting with several descendants yesterday, and several today……….many receive the IOLANI – The Royal Hawk news on the web.

“There is a process that covers this should it occur. The monarch, Legislature (House of Commons), and the House of Nobles all play a crucial part in this process. The candidates must be above reproach, educated properly, not an idiot, and approved as part of the criteria.”

“Lot named Pauahi and she rightfully declined; that left the Queen Dowager Emma who deferred it to Lunalilo whose rank was higher than hers and being a bloodline of Kamehameha. Thus he was the first elected monarch and popular with the people.”

Note: Lunalilo’s mother Auhea/Kekauluohi was married four (4) times. Her first husband was Kamehameha; her second husband was Kamehameha II – Liholiho.

Lunalilo had a special status and was respected thru his mother’s lines, who was a three time widow before she married Charles Kanaina.

“When Liliuokalani died, there were two women from the Royal School that survived the queen; Abigail Maheha and Jane Loeau. Coincidently, they were the only ones that had legitimate descendants that survive today. Kuhio tried to declare the Queen incompetent which created a rift between them and she cut him out of her will. He became persona non grata. Which amounted to him being cut out of the line of succession. The Crown Princess was patented and approved as heir to the throne due to the fact that she was directly blood-related ; unfortunately, the Queen out-lived her which ended the Kalakaua Stirps.”

Note: Abigail Maheha has many descendants and heirs. Jane Loeau did marry a haole. Research incomplete.

Kuhio’s connection to the King Kalakaua’s Dynasty was thru his aunty Queen Kapiolani who gave a deed for Kuhio and Kawananakoa after she died. They immediately filed it, and she opposed them publicly in the Hawaiian newspaper in 1898.

Princess Kaiulani was to be married to Prince Kuhio, but she died……..it was not in the movie Kaiulani, by the way….

Queen Liliuokalani in her younger days living as a hanai grandchild of a Kamehameha descendant did have children/hanai children and formed a Trust in 1872.

Queen Liliuokalani denied she signed a will with the haole. See her will below:

Prince Kuhio, after Queen Liliuokalani died, did take an out of court settlement to the claim by our Queen that she did not sign a will……….he received a house in Waikiki, and agreed not to become a King/Monarch.

The bottom line is that the Princes were not part of the Kamehameha families, nor part of the Kalakaua, Queen Liliuokalani families.

How they did gain a fractional interest was through an agreement to pay off one of her 1872 designated trustees hanai daughter’s child who has been problematic over time. Research continues on this line, and evidence of the agreements are recorded at the Bureau of Conveyances………..research incomplete.

Queen Liliuokalani’s issues remain unresolved…………and it appears issues of genocide has occurred over time affecting the families of Queen Liliuokalani, which others and myself are a part of………do your genealogies folks because she had many children that she called her own and hanai as well.

“Since the unlawful belligerent occupation of the U.S.A., the still-existing Hawaiian Kingdom has been powerless to act on its own behalf and due process of choosing a monarch. Precedent demands that today, should the subjects of the kingdom choose to continue the constitutional monarchy, that this would then open up to all collateral relations of the children that were picked for the Royal School; which includes the direct descendants from Jane Loeau and Abigail Maheha provided all meet the requirements established in the Constitution.”

Picks also include the actual Kamehameha bloodlines, his brother Keliimaikai’s descendants, et. als. who were the hanai/adopted children of Kauikeouli/Kamehameha III.

The Kawananakoa’s are not from the above lines.

“We must remember there were senior lines and junior lines. Also important in the Hawaiian system was who’s the mother and who’s the father whereby the birthright and birth rank are established. With all the intermarriages today, it could be a problem for many. If that practice is dispensed with; then it would open up to many more. Catch-22 is that the monarch has to approve of the marriages or that person would be struck from the line of succession as if dead. So, we can see updates and changes must be ratified by legislature and House of Nobles before electing a monarch or reformation of government. This tells me we are putting the cart before the horse and needlessly worrying about who will be mo’i.”

Some of Kamehameha’s descendants are also descendants of the original members of the House of Nobles. Some of us are descendants of multiple individuals as well. Like marries like, the sociological phenomenon can be seen in marriages in our families. Studies of cross cultural marriages also shows this significant phenomenon.

“The other point brought up was identifying who is ali’i. Many of us were raised not to profess that we were ali’i and that people will know by one’s demeanor, conduct, and even to the extreme of name recognition. In other words you’ll be judged by your actions. To boast you are ali’i or descendant from one; is to be ho’okano, arrogant, and presumptuous as well as vain. When the missionaries came to Hawai’i, many ka po’e haole Melika wanted to kill off the ali’i so they could control the people and takeover Hawai’i. Poison was the most prevalent usage during that time; and the reason many went underground. This produced the behaviour I previously described.”

Note: The Hawaiian Genealogy Society came together in 1995……..not because we are Kamehameha descendants, et. als. but the question asked was “do you have ancestors who were killed, beaten, thrown on Kalaupapa, Molokai (charged with leprosy, etc.)?” well, many showed up to the meetings and documenting genocide issues has been made over time as well. These are issues of human rights violations and needs to be told to our people and the World today.

“The ali’i of olden days were related to many throughout the islands. Many bloodlines intermeshed with others and there are descendants from pio unions on all islands. It becomes irrelevant what island since most were related to each other.”

Note: Genealogy(ies) remains a study of individuals bloodlines because not everyone has the same ancestors, not everyone can claim that they descend from Kamehameha who began the Monarchy government in 1810. Genealogy(ies), history, laws are part of our active practice of an ancient 3,000 year old culture…………and to lump everyone together saying that they are related to each other is just a failure to heed the ancient practices of linking the truth, the people to the land, failure to respect one’s ancestors, etc. or

It could just be an implanted fear, deliberately taught by the haole that something will happen to those who find out who they’re from……..many say that there’s a spiritual guide prompting them to do their research…….and it’s all good………..because one has to realize that the squatters, homeless, pirates plundering comes from people who were the castouts, the throwaways of England who searched out already occupied lands and called it theirs only 200+ years ago……….and we are nearly 3,000 years old……..the Middle East nations are more than 8,000 years old, along with China, Africa, Russia………..then look at what one of the youngest nations, the U.S. supported by England has done with their propaganda, lies, etc.

“Each island has their sacred places which should be revered and preserved. Hawai’i ka pae aina has been recognized internationally as the Kingdom of Hawaii and to splinter it up more would be a treasonous action. Governorship was given to each island and this is where your ali’i from your island could hold title. Molokai and Lana’i was always part of Mau’i’s jurisdiction. If you view hawaiiankingdom.org you may better understand the construct of the Kingdom and its laws which are still in effect.”

Note: “Kingdom of Hawaii” is actually the “Hawaiian Kingdom” only – was corrected by a Hawaiian legal eagle recently. Also, “Hawaii” became used intensely after the wrongful dethronement of our Queen…..the words use were “the Hawaiian archipelago” the “Hawaiian Islands” “Hawaiian Kingdom” and Ko Hawaii Pae Aina words in the period of Kamehameha III.

Out of the 40+ Kingdoms claiming government, many of them have important information as well……..i enjoy using http://www.pixi.com/~kingdom/ and others for legal information as well as my own which is made available to documented Royal family members, friends.

“There is strength in our unity when compared to other world nations. We should look to the 21st century and adjust to today’s dynamics and choose as subjects of the kingdom which was evolving, modern, and progressive. Before the U.S. intervention, Hawaii was one of the richest country in the world. Today it’s what we make it.”

“Instead of living under the racist U.S. WASP society, we can live under the Hawaiian Polynesian society and still relate to the outside world and actively participate with them once again.”

The Kamehameha Waltz
Performed on Friday, June 12th, 2009 at the lei ceremony on Oahu.
by sarahinhi | 1 year ago | 307 views

The following are two (2) of the main examples documenting the existence of Kamehameha’s descendants/ heirs.

The first example is the basis of my book Kaoleioku: Kamehameha’s Oldest Son, His Descendants and Heirs (2003) by Amelia Gora :

Notes:

Kaoleioku was Kamehameha’s Oldest Son. He died in 1818 or before Kamehameha’s death in 1819.

The Russians recorded some of our ancestor’s information in their ship logs.

Out of the files at the Archives, Honolulu, Oahu – note the reference at the top right:

‘Kaoleioku had four (4) children’………

Notes:

1) Pauahi – mother of Ruth Keelikolani;

2) Hanuna – father of Kapule (k); Kini (w); Hookahe (w); and Poohina (w);

3) Keola – father of Alenoho (k) et. als.

4) Konia – mother of Bernice Pauahi

‘Bernice Pauahi was claimed to be the last of the Kamehameha’s…………’ which is an absolute LIE!

Many of his descendants have been defrauded over time……..this is also evidence of genocide…….by pirates, racketeers, criminal deviance perpetuated over time.

EXHIBIT No. 2

This document comes out of the Bureau of Conveyances:

This document shows Mataio Kekuanaoa/Kekuanaoa with one of his wives, along with relative Keaka who were the heirs of Ahia (w).

Mataio Kekuanaoa/Kekuanaoa was the father of Paalua (k); Ruth Keelikolani (w); Moses Kaikioewa; David Kamehameha; Lot Kamehameha/Kamehameha V; Alexander Liholiho/Kamehameha IV; Victoria Kamamalu; hanai: Bernice Pauahi; E.N. Kaaua; Enoka/Enosa; Keloha (w); Alenoho (k); Kapehe (w); Kapau (k); John Kapena (k); Sam Kapena; Ialua/Kalua (k); Nalua (w); Kala (k), et. als.

This document shows that One of Kekuanaoa/Mataio Kekuanaoa’s wives included

Kalima (w).

Kalima (w) died about five (5)+ years AFTER Mataio Kekuanaoa.

On this document /Liber 19 page 175, Note that the grantee of the land was a treasonous person Clarence Judd, and notice the witness was another treasonous person named Albert Francis Judd.

Clarence and Albert Francis Judd were the sons of early GENOCIDE LEADER Parmele Judd.

Gerrit Parmele Judd withheld the smallpox vaccine from our kanaka maoli and many dropped like flies, many died. Gerrit Parmele Judd vaccinated only haoles and a few Hawaiians/ kanaka maoli. Gerrit Parmele Judd advertised in the U.S. that he had an abundant supply of arsenic in the Hawaiian Islands.

Arsenic has been dusted freely on the research documents at the Archives and the Bureau of Conveyances……………..so be sure to wash your hands before you eat!

You wouldn’t want to die like our Kamehameha families did in the past would you?

The entity State of Hawaii had passed a law preventing the testing of our Sovereigns…..so what’s up with that?

aloha.

p.s. will be bringing out my books again soon……….UH Manoa Bookstore; Chaminade University of Honolulu; some of the bookstores carried some of them previously.

Sons of Mau Piailug talk about the master navigator

By Clarissa David
Reporter

Mau Piailug Antonio Piailug’s fond memories of his father, legendary Micronesian navigator Mau Piailug, were about the countless voyages they made together.

“I used to sail with my father in Yap and Chuuk since I was 6 years old,” the younger Piailug told Saipan Tribune in a telephone interview.

With unsurpassed skills in journeying across the Pacific without the use of any navigational instruments, Mau Piailug was considered a palu, a master navigator that only uses of ancient methods of wayfaring.

On July 12, Mau Piailug, the last of the traditional master navigators, passed away on his home island of Satawal, state of Yap, in the Federated States of Micronesia. He was 78.

Mau Piailug was well-known for having navigated the Hokule’a, a Polynesia double-hulled voyaging canoe, in the 2,500-mile journey from Hawaii to Tahiti on its maiden voyage in 1976.

According to his son Henry Yarofalpiy, they found out about his father’s death through a call from their relatives back in Satawal.

Mau Piailug had 10 sons and six daughters, three of whom are based on Saipan.

Yarofalpiy said his father was buried the day after he died, which is customary in Yap since they do not have a morgue.

To observe the death of a navigator like his father, Yarofalpiy said sailing between islands is banned until the family of the deceased opens up the seas by initiating sea voyaging once again.

“We won’t hold it for long. We understand that people need to travel to other islands for food. We plan to open sail nine days after his death,” said Yarofalpiy.

Piailug, who last saw his father when he sailed to Satawal last year, said he followed his father in most of his trips from Satawal to Saipan on a conventional canoe.

“He had diabetes but he was in good condition [then],” said Piailug.

Legend continues

Being one of the last traditional navigators, Mau Piailug trained younger navigators, including Charles Nainoa Thompson, executive director of the Polynesian Voyaging Society, which invited Mau Piailug to support them in their quest to revive the ancient art of Hawaiian wayfaring.

“There are young people that have the knowledge but not like what he did. He’s into traditional [method],” said Yarofalpiy.

In an e-mail to Saipan Tribune, Commonwealth Council for Arts executive director Angel S. Hocog offered his condolences to the family of the late Mau Piailug.

Hocog said the death of Mau Piailug is “a great loss” for the Micronesian culture because “there is so much to learn” from the late master navigator.

He added that CCAC is planning to organize an exhibit that will coincide with the Cultural Heritage Month in September to pay tribute to Mau Piailug.

Piailug noted that the continued existence of the art of traditional navigation lies to a great extent on those who have learned from the late master navigator.

“Whoever learned from him should step up and do what they learned. We have to step up and try navigating around and pass the knowledge,” he said.

To continue his father’s legacy, Yarofalpiy said he plans to work closely with the Canoe Federation on Saipan and the CCAC and do educational outreach to students.

Yarofalpiy, who has done presentations at Marianas High School and other schools in the past, said he is willing to teach children so they can learn about traditional art and culture.

“It will be up to the young generation to continue this art. That’s what we want, to preserve our culture,” he said.

The family of the late Mau Piailug started the nightly rosary last Tuesday, July 13, at 7:30pm and will continue until the memorial service 6pm on July 21 to be held at Santa Soledad Church.

Note: Be at peace

I have pictures of my visit with Mau and educational material of the 1992 voyage to Tahiti. Like Yarofalpiy says. ““Whoever learned from him should step up and do what they learned. We have to step up and try navigating around and pass the knowledge,” he said.’

Not being Catholic, I attended one only prayer night with the chuk’s.

hi Kaohi!

Mau has been a good teacher for many……….the pride of his family…..

Thank you for posting this………….

The contribution that he gave to our people are reminders of our ancestors navigating history…….. even the petroglyphs show sailing with feathers (red religious feathers according to history) which were exchanged in the Polynesias long ago………..like thousand years ago………..exchanging food items, etc.

Our Polynesians brothers and sisters link through reading the stars, navigating, exchanging plants, foods, animals……….even rats! yes, Captain Cook’s men are recorded to have been roasting rats over the fire to be eaten and the Tahitians, Hawaiians laughed at them………..because as it turns out, rats were deliberately introduced into our islands to eat the unko (Japanese word)/kukae (Hawaiian word) meaning waste……..

The American Missionaries are on record in the early missionary/mercenary days claiming the Chuk’s, Micronesians were Hawaiian in part.

It appears that our Polynesian voyagers along with their oral history(ies) are better persons to learn from than the American mercenaries/missionaries………….

May he rest in peace, and hope his babies will continue to share what they have learned from him and their ancestors too.

aloha.

THE TRUTH ABOUT PRINCESS KAIULANI – Never mentioned in the Movies or History

researcher Amelia Gora, a Royal person (2010)

Yes indeed, Kawananakoa moved to marry Princess Kaiulani whose mother Miriam Likelike was the sister of King David Kalakaua and Queen Liliuokalani…….

Princess Kaiulani died. Prince Kawananakoa married Abigail Campbell.

Tons of criminal activity surrounding the Cleghorns married to the Lucas who introduced the Secret Society of Masons/Freemasons………Abigail Campbell’s father James Campbell participated in dethroning our Queen, etc. etc. Research continues.

Note: Found some really ugly stuff today………guess what? choke documents of Queen Liliuokalani’s has been removed from the Libers/Books at the Bureau of Conveyances! About 30+ pages to date………….four (4) books have been affected! Now, these are issues of genocide………..and the entity State of Hawaii wants to REMOVE the books by 2012!

WHAT’S LEFT – “Overthrow Incorporated” from Steven Gowans:

Subject: [what’s left] Overthrow Inc.
To: sr.gowans@sympatico.ca
Date: Thursday, August 6, 2009, 12:55 PM

Overthrow Inc.: Peter Ackerman’s quest to do what the CIA used to so, and make it seem progressive

When some of State’s desk officers don’t want to create international incidents by advising activists on how to overthrow governments, they gently suggest visiting Ackerman, who has fewer qualms about lending a helping hand.” [1]

By Stephen Gowans

Peter Ackerman, an immensely wealthy investor and board member of the premier U.S. foreign policy think-tank, the Council on Foreign Relations, [2] and Robert Helvey, a 30 year veteran of the U.S. Army [3] who served two tours of duty in Vietnam [4], are the principal proponents of a nonviolent alternative to military intervention in the pursuit of U.S. foreign policy goals.

Students of Gene Sharp, who developed a theory of how to destabilize governments through nonviolent means, Ackerman and Helvey have been at the head of a kind of Imperialist International, training “a modern type of mercenary,” who travel “the world, often in the pay of the U.S. government or NGOs, in order to train local groups” [5] in regime change.

Ackerman and Helvey’s new type of mercenary are practioners of what the CIA used to call destabilization. To escape the taint of its CIA past, destabilization has been rebranded. It’s now called nonviolent resistance (NVR), shrewdly drawing upon the reputation of Martin Luther King Jr.’s nonviolent struggles for black civil rights in the 1960s. But where King sought to bring about change within the system, and in the United States, NVR is strictly a foreign affair, seeking to overturn governments abroad that operate outside the system of U.S. imperial domination.

NVR is not about pursuing social, economic and political justice at home. It’s about taking power abroad, in order to bring resistant countries into the U.S. imperial fold. To make itself appear to be squeaky clean, NVR explicitly rejects overt CIA and U.S. military sponsorship. As Helvey explains, “The easiest way to destroy a movement is for the CIA to taint it.” [6] That, however, doesn’t make NVR any different in its aims and content from the destabilization campaigns the CIA used to plan, sponsor and implement. Indeed, Ackerman and Helvey have simply taken over a CIA function, made it semi-overt, and created the illusion that it’s progressive.

from Mike Benoit:

What say you?

Michael Benoit

Wind out of my Sails

What pulls the wind out of your sails? For me, I just have to reflect on how good men do virtually nothing to stop evil and how for the most part they don’t recognize it even when it crosses their path. I am also disheartened when good men make form more important than substance.

Form over Substance

Making form more important than substance is evil as far as I am concerned. I see a world that has made “Form” senior to “Substance” This teaches us appearance is everything. It is no wonder we can’t recognize right from wrong. We have a Constitution now in form only.

Constitution in form only

It is not uncommon for people to invoke the Constitution making its form senior to it purpose or substance. Someone came into my office and told me how he came to acquire some copies of our Constitution from the local congressman’s office. I then inquired as to where in the Constitution the congressman was given authority to take the fruits of our labor to hand out Constitutions. By what right do they act?

Rights and Responsibilities

Even the atheists among us concede that we all are endowed with certain rights. listed a few of them in the Declaration of Independence. Does anyone actually think these rights come to us without having to be responsible for them? Rights without sovereignty over them are rights in form only.

Spheres of jurisdiction

Who is sovereign over what realm? Do we own ourselves? Who gave us that ownership? Can we be sovereign over ourselves yet subject to a higher authority who would in turn be the ultimate sovereign? Can we delegate to a state sovereignty over citizens disputes or conflicts? If we do that have lost sovereignty over ourselves? If the State takes control over our endowed rights who then is sovereign?

What is the Purpose of the State?

Was the state not created to secure our rights? When the state violates its designated jurisdiction has form not become superior to substance? If the state takes from you what is yours by endowment (sovereignty over self) what then is that?

What is theft?

Theft is simply taking that which is not yours to take. It can come in many forms. Paper currency printed out of thin air takes from all of us. Our right to be self determined in our actions short of harming others being infringed on by government is a form of theft. Taxation for redistribution is theft and refusing to submit to it might be extremism in defense of liberty.

What is the touchstone of ?

You decide without violating someone else’s unalienable rights.

Can you have liberty when self determinism is destroyed?

No!

Why did God give us pain?

Pain is for the purpose of teaching not to do something that harms the body, mind or soul.

What would happen if we never felt hunger?

We would perish!

What happens if Government feeds people so they don’t feel hunger?

They will not do what is necessary to survive as survival is provided at the expense of someone else. This will cause us to eventually perish.

‘If you give up liberty in the name of security you will end up with neither’

This is not just Benjamin Franklin talking, it is a law of nature. is a two sided coin with responsibility on the other side. Security is impossible without liberty. If you give up liberty, life diminishes in the process.

Why is it we trade our liberty constantly for security?

I say that it is because we are also flawed with a “something for nothing” desire. We think that we will get security by not being responsible for it. We see the loss of liberty as being nothing and security being something. Thus we satisfy the something for nothing desire.

‘All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.’

Yes evil triumphs because good men want something for nothing. They want evil to lose without battling it. Evil is winning the day and it is doing so for this reason for because we value form over substance. Working on substance requires so much more effort than supporting form.

If a few good men do something but most do nothing is that also the same result?

I think the results are the same as a few doing a lot does not hold the line against evil. I think many have to do something even a little something for good to triumph.

The totalitarian regimes of Hitler, Mao, Stalin, and Pol Pot were the fault of whom?

You got it. Good men!

Barry M. Goldwater said ”extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice” and that ”moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.”

I would rather give up form than substance any day, and the substance of our system is now control and loss of freedom. The form looks good but the reality or substance doesn’t.

Is it extremism to refuse to take a license from the state to be a minister?

Is it extremism to refuse assent to confiscation of your labor?

Call me an extremist who does not conform to form. I wish you would judge only on substance and let form follow not lead.

What puts wind in my sails is for good men to recognize evil and to do something about it.

Mike Benoit

Report: Pentagon seeks WikiLeaks founder Assange, fearing cables will be published
June 11, 2010, USA Today
http://content.usatoday.com/communities/ondeadline/post/2010/06/report-pentagon-seeks…

The Daily Beast

reports that Pentagon investigators are trying to track down Julian Assange, the elusive Australian-born founder of WikiLeaks

, who they believe is preparing to publish several years of State Department cables allegedly passed by the 22-year-old Manning, now being detained in Kuwait. The cables contain “information related to American diplomatic and intelligence efforts in the war zones in Afghanistan and Iraq,” and they could do “serious damage to national security” if made public, government officials told the Beast. But even if they find him, it’s not clear what they could do to stop publication. Daniel Ellsberg says Assange “is in danger.” Meanwhile, Wired’s Threat Level blog, which broke the Manning story, is reporting that Assange … is arranging Manning’s legal defense and says Manning is no spy. Assange, who first gained notoriety as a computer hacker, canceled an appearance today at an International Reporters and Editors conference in Las Vegas.

WikiLeaks to release video of deadly US Afghan attack

http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2010/jun/16/wikileaks-us-military-afghanistan-garani

The whistleblowing website WikiLeaks

says it plans to release a secret military video of one of the deadliest US air strikes in Afghanistan in which scores of children are believed to have been killed. It said it fears it is under attack after the US authorities said they were searching for the site’s founder, Julian Assange, following the arrest of a US soldier accused of leaking the Afghanistan video and another of a US attack in Baghdad in which civilians were killed. It says it is still working to prepare the film of the bombing of the Afghan village of Garani in May 2009. The video could prove to be extremely embarrassing to the US military. The US … used weapons that create casualties over a wide area, including one-tonne bombs and others that burst in the air. But two US military officials told a newspaper last year that no one checked to see whether there were women and children in the buildings. In an email to supporters, Assange said WikiLeaks has the Garani video and “a lot of other material that exposes human rights abuses by the US government”. In his email, Assange also calls on supporters to protect the website from “attack” by the authorities following the detention of a US soldier, Bradley Manning, who was arrested in Iraq after admitting to a former hacker that he leaked the Garani and Baghdad videos to WikiLeaks.

Wanted by the US: WikiLeaks founder keeps his head down
June 14, 2010, Sydney Morning Herald (Australia’s leading newspaper)
http://www.smh.com.au/technology/technology-news/wanted-by-the-us-wikileaks-founder…

Julian Assange, the Australian-born face of the [whistleblowers’ website] WikiLeaks

, is in hiding overseas after the US military arrested one of its own soldiers, Bradley Manning, and accused him of leaking a a secret video of a US Army helicopter gunning down civilians in Iraq in 2007. The video was released on Wikileaks this year, and the US is now desperate to find Mr Assange before he leaks thousands of hugely embarrassing state diplomatic cables, which are believed to discuss the Middle East, its governments and leaders. Mr Assange, 38, is an enigmatic figure who moves frequently between countries and has bases in Iceland, Kenya, Australia and elsewhere. He was due to speak at a conference in Las Vegas on [June 11] but cancelled shortly before he was due to appear. At the same time [a US website] published an article

claiming that Pentagon investigators were engaged in a “manhunt” for Mr Assange. There have even been suggestions that Mr Assange may be in physical danger. Daniel Ellsberg, who famously leaked a top secret US history of the Vietnam War dubbed the Pentagon Papers at the height of that war, told US television he had spoken to Mr Assange last week. “He … understood that it was not safe for him to come to this country,” Mr Ellsberg said.

Federal approval still flowing for flawed Gulf drilling plans
June 18, 2010, Miami Herald/McClatchy Newspapers
http://www.miamiherald.com/2010/06/18/1688759/federal-approval-still-flowing.html

Despite President Barack Obama’s promises of better safeguards for offshore drilling, federal regulators continue to approve plans for oil companies to drill in the Gulf of Mexico with minimal or no environmental analysis. The Department of Interior’s Minerals Management Service has signed off on at least five new offshore drilling projects since June 2, when the agency’s acting director announced tougher safety regulations for drilling in the Gulf, a McClatchy review of public records has discovered. Three of the projects were approved with waivers exempting them from detailed studies of their environmental impact — the same waiver the MMS granted to BP for the ill-fated well that’s been fouling the Gulf with crude for two months. Environmental groups [say] the administration is allowing oil companies to proceed with drilling plans that may be just as flawed as BP’s, which concluded that a major spill was “unlikely” and that the company was equipped to manage even the worst-case blowout. “It’s just outrageous,” said Kieran Suckling, executive director of the Center for Biological Diversity

, a conservation organization. “The whole world is screaming and … they’re just continuing to move this stuff through the system.”

Is Using Dispersants on the BP Gulf Oil Spill Fighting Pollution with Pollution?
June 18, 2010, Scientific American
http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=is-using-dispersants-fighting-pollution-with-pollution

Roughly five million liters of dispersants have now been used to break up the oil spilling into the Gulf of Mexico, making this the largest use of such chemicals in U.S. history. And there is no doubt that dispersants are toxic: Both types of the dispersal compound COREXIT used in the Gulf so far are capable of killing or depressing the growth of a wide range of aquatic species, ranging from phytoplankton to fish. But the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), for one, has become concerned about the toxicity of the most-used dispersant at the Gulf of Mexico spill—COREXIT 9500—and ordered BP to look at alternatives. The problem? The EPA’s industry-generated data is unclear as to the relative toxicity of various dispersants. “If you think the data on COREXIT is bad, try to find any decent toxicology data on the alternatives,” says toxicologist Carys Mitchelmore of the University of Maryland’s Chesapeake Biological Laboratory, who helped write a 2005 National Research Council (NRC) report on dispersants. “I couldn’t compare and contrast which one was more toxic than the other based on that.”

Fed dodges bullet as House drops audit idea
June 15, 2010, Reuters News
http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSN1527338120100615

The Federal Reserve scored a political victory … as Democrats mulling financial reform backed off measures that would expose monetary policy to audits and make the head of the New York Fed a political appointee. The U.S. House of Representatives had approved a bill in December that included a provision, championed by Texas Representative Ron Paul, that would have opened the Fed’s interest rate policy to congressional audits. But in a statement on Tuesday, House Democrats participating in negotiations over a final financial reform bill signaled a willingness to live with a narrower Senate audit provision that does not cover monetary policy. The Fed, which has admitted it was too complacent about regulatory oversight in the run-up to the global financial crisis, has come under heavy fire for being too close to the banks it regulates. The House Democrats also said they would try to defeat a plan contained in the Senate bill under debate that would allow the U.S. president to name the head of the New York Fed, a step that Fed officials have argued would undercut the central bank’s political independence. The U.S. central bank appears to be emerging largely unscathed by the regulatory reform efforts. It successfully fought off a Senate push last month that would have stripped it of its oversight of smaller banks, and is poised to emerge as the most powerful financial regulator when reforms are complete.

Note: A news search on both Google and Yahoo revealed that MSNBC was the only media to pick up this Reuters story, yet MSNBC then removed the story. Why might that be?

Lawmakers Negotiating Bank Bill Hold Industry Stocks
June 17, 2010, Bloomberg/Businessweek
http://www.businessweek.com/news/2010-06-17/lawmakers-negotiating-bank-bill-hold-industry…

Lawmakers writing the biggest overhaul of financial regulations since the Great Depression may have a stake in the outcome. Eight of 11 senators and six of 22 House members on a conference committee writing the final legislation own stocks in financial companies affected by the legislation, disclosure statements released yesterday show. One senator and nine representatives who also sit on the committee got extensions of the filing deadline and haven’t yet disclosed their holdings. “It’s always a concern that personal interests influence legislation,” said Lisa Gilbert, a lobbyist for the U.S. Public Interest Research Group

, a Boston-based organization pushing for stronger financial regulations. Senator Judd Gregg of New Hampshire reported Bank of America stock holdings and a savings account valued between $1 million and $5 million. The 43 negotiators are trying to iron out differences between the House and Senate versions of the legislation as they respond to an economic crisis that forced the U.S. to provide $700 billion in bailout funds for New York-based Citigroup Inc. … Bank of America Corp. and other banks.

Saudi Arabia gives Israel clear skies to attack Iranian nuclear sites
June 12, 2010, The Times (One of the UK’s leading newspapers)
http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/middle_east/article7148555.ece

Saudi Arabia has conducted tests to stand down its air defences to enable Israeli jets to make a bombing raid on Iran’s nuclear facilities, The Times can reveal. Defence sources in the Gulf say that Riyadh has agreed to allow Israel to use a narrow corridor of its airspace in the north of the country to shorten the distance for a bombing run on Iran. “The Saudis have given their permission for the Israelis to pass over and they will look the other way,” said a US defence source in the area. “This has all been done with the agreement of the [US] State Department.” Sources in Saudi Arabia say it is common knowledge within defence circles in the kingdom that an arrangement is in place if Israel decides to launch the raid. “We all know this. We will let them [the Israelis] through and see nothing,” said one. The targets lie as far as 1,400 miles (2,250km) from Israel; the outer limits of their bombers’ range, even with aerial refuelling. An open corridor across northern Saudi Arabia would significantly shorten the distance. An airstrike would involve multiple waves of bombers, possibly crossing Jordan, northern Saudi Arabia and Iraq. Passing over Iraq would require at least tacit agreement to the raid from Washington.

Report: Pakistani Spy Agency Arms, Trains Taliban
June 13, 2010, ABC News
http://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory?id=10900484

Pakistan’s main spy agency continues to arm and train the Taliban and is even represented on the group’s leadership council despite U.S. pressure to sever ties and billions in aid to combat the militants, a research report concluded. U.S. officials have suggested in the past that current or former members of Pakistan’s powerful Inter-Services Intelligence agency, or ISI, have maintained links to the Taliban despite the government’s decision to denounce the group in 2001 under U.S. pressure. The report issued [on June 13] by the London School of Economics offered one of the strongest cases that assistance to the group is official ISI policy, and even extends to the highest levels of the Pakistani government. The report … was based on interviews with Taliban commanders, former Taliban officials, Western diplomats and many others. “Without a change in Pakistani behavior it will be difficult, if not impossible, for international forces and the Afghan government to make progress against the insurgency,” said the report, written by Matt Waldman, a fellow at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government.

U.S. Identifies Vast Mineral Riches in Afghanistan
June 14, 2010, New York Times
http://www.nytimes.com/2010/06/14/world/asia/14minerals.html

The United States has discovered nearly $1 trillion in untapped mineral deposits in Afghanistan, far beyond any previously known reserves. The previously unknown deposits — including huge veins of iron, copper, cobalt, gold and critical industrial metals like lithium — are so big and include so many minerals that are essential to modern industry that Afghanistan could eventually be transformed into one of the most important mining centers in the world. American and Afghan officials agreed to discuss the mineral discoveries at a difficult moment in the war in Afghanistan. Just last year, Afghanistan’s minister of mines was accused by American officials of accepting a $30 million bribe to award China the rights to develop its copper mine. The minister has since been replaced. American officials fear resource-hungry China will try to dominate the development of Afghanistan’s mineral wealth, which could upset the United States, given its heavy investment in the region. After winning the bid for its Aynak copper mine in Logar Province, China clearly wants more, American officials said.

Revealed: Japan’s bribes on whaling
June 13, 2010, The Times (One of the UK’s leading newspapers)
http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/environment/article7149091.ece

A Sunday Times investigation has exposed Japan for bribing small nations with cash and prostitutes to gain their support for the mass slaughter of whales. The undercover investigation found officials from six countries were willing to consider selling their votes on the International Whaling Commission (IWC). The revelations come as Japan seeks to break the 24-year moratorium on commercial whaling. An IWC meeting that will decide the fate of thousands of whales, including endangered species, begins this month in Morocco. Japan denies buying the votes of IWC members. However, The Sunday Times filmed officials from pro-whaling governments admitting: – They voted with the whalers because of the large amounts of aid from Japan. One said he was not sure if his country had any whales in its territorial waters. Others are landlocked. — They receive cash payments in envelopes at IWC meetings from Japanese officials who pay their travel and hotel bills. – One disclosed that call girls were offered when fisheries ministers and civil servants visited Japan for meetings. Barry Gardiner, an MP and former Labour biodiversity minister, said the investigation revealed “disgraceful, shady practice”, which is “effectively buying votes”.

Dearth of financing stalls inventor of 110-mpg engine
May 28, 2010, Toledo Blade (Toledo’s leading newspaper)
http://toledoblade.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20100528/BUSINESS07/5280334

A year ago, hundreds of people flocked to a 100,000-square-foot former factory building in Wauseon’s industrial area where a Napoleon, Ohio, inventor promised to begin building engines that would travel more than 110 miles on a gallon of E85 gasoline. But time and the economy have not been kind to Doug Pelmear’s plan to revolutionize the American automobile. The factory today is largely dark and empty, Mr. Pelmear’s dreams of putting northwest Ohioans back to work are still constrained within two file drawers full of job applications, and his hopes of mass-producing his HP2g engine have fallen victim to a lack of funding. “We can’t get the banks to look at us,” Mr. Pelmear said yesterday. Mr. Pelmear said he hasn’t sought money from more traditional capital sources such as investors, selling stock or bonded indebtedness, because such sources would likely cost him control of HP2g LLC – something he’s unwilling to provide. A partnership Mr. Pelmear forged with Revenge Designs Inc., a Decatur, Ind. specialty carmaker that had planned to use his engine in its upcoming “Verde” supercar, dissolved this spring.

San Francisco Passes Cellphone Radiation Law
June 16, 2010, New York Times
http://www.nytimes.com/2010/06/16/us/16cell.html

Imposing roughly the same cautionary standards for cellphones as for fatty food or sugary soda, this city — never shy about its opinions — voted on [June 15] to require all retailers to display the amount of radiation each phone emits. The law — believed to be the first of its kind in the nation — came … amid opposition from the wireless telephone industry, which views the labeling ordinance as a potential business-killing precedent. But the administration of Gavin Newsom, the city’s … mayor … called the vote a major victory for cell phone shoppers’ right to know. Under the law, retailers will be required to post materials — in at least 11-point type — next to phones, listing their specific absorption rate, which is the amount of radio waves absorbed into the cellphone user’s body tissue. These so-called SAR rates can vary from phone to phone, but all phones sold in the United States must have a SAR rate no greater than 1.6 watts per kilogram, according to the Federal Communications Commission, which regulates the $190 billion wireless industry.

Number of volunteers has grown despite recession, study says
June 15, 2010, Washington Post
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/06/15/AR2010061501449.html

The number of volunteers increased last year despite the recession, the biggest one-year jump since 2003. The volunteer rate has been rising nationally for years, … but the increase in the midst of a punishing recession surprised some experts. More than 63 million Americans volunteered last year, a bump of 1.6 million, according to the Corporation for National & Community Service, an independent federal agency that runs AmeriCorps and other programs. That’s nearly 27 percent of all residents. Americans donated more than 8 billion hours of service in 2009, worth an estimated $169 billion to the economy. “Folks throughout the country are looking around their communities, seeing people in pain and turning toward the problems, not away from them,” said Patrick Corvington, chief executive of CNCS. “It’s an important shift: Folks want to get engaged, want to make a difference.” At the same time, charitable giving dropped nearly 4 percent last year, to about $304 billion, according to a study by Giving USA Foundation and the Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University. Many experts had predicted a greater drop because of the economy.

Amnesty International botches blame for North Korea’s crumbling healthcare
“Economic sanctions are, at their core, a war against public health.”
–The New England Journal of Medicine

By Stephen Gowans

If we recognize that “economic sanctions are, at their core, a war against public health” and acknowledge, as a former US president has, that North Korea is “the most sanctioned nation in the world,” it is difficult not to draw the obvious conclusion: that the crumbling of North Korea’s healthcare system is due to sanctions. How is it, then, that a new Amnesty International report blames Pyongyang’s “failed or counterproductive” policies, while saying not a word about sanctions?

Wikileaks is an example of what an ideal press organization should be. Funded by public support entirely, it provides ways for information to get to it so that all the sources are protected.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

White House Ends Climate Change Gag Order

EPA Whistleblowers Now Free to Speak Out

( Washington , D.C. ) – The Government Accountability Project (GAP), counsel for EPA and climate change whistleblowers Laurie Williams and Allan Zabel, sent a letter to President Obama yesterday thanking the White House for causing the EPA to withdraw its censorship orders that effectively gagged the two enforcement attorneys.

Williams and Zabel had challenged “cap-and-trade” as a climate change solution in their personal capacities by, among other actions, posting a video on YouTube late last year. The EPA accused them of violating ethics rules simply by listing and referencing their government positions and experience to strengthen their credibility.

GAP was particularly impressed that White House Ethics Counsel Norm Eisen not only intervened in this specific case, but successfully sought the Office of Government Ethics (OGE) to issue new guidelines against using ethics rules to gag whistleblowers’ noncommercial speech.

After 22 years of intransigence, the EPA also committed to implement and obey the federal anti-gag statute – requiring agencies to include a qualifier to nondisclosure policies. The qualifier makes clear that free speech rights outlined by the Whistleblower Protection Act supersede any restrictions elsewhere in the policy.

“This victory would not have happened without the White House,” stated GAP Legal Director Tom Devine . “Most impressive, the administration delivered on transparency commitments by ending censorship of those criticizing its own policies. At GAP we’re not used to that kind of leadership.”

Rick Piltz, Director of the GAP-sponsored project Climate Science Watch, emphasized the important role of the White House, stating: “The culture in federal agencies of inappropriately restricting communication is dug in. It won’t be changed overnight and it won’t change all by itself. It’s going to take sustained, hands-on White House leadership and oversight.”

Background

Williams and Zabel have worked at the EPA for over 20 years. Zabel has two decades’ worth of experience assisting EPA oversight of Los Angeles ’ cap-and-trade program and California ’s Clean Air Act offsets. Last November, under threat of discipline, the EPA ordered Williams and Zabel to remove a YouTube video they created to share their concerns on cap and trade. Although their efforts were uncompensated, and they made clear they were speaking in their own capacity, the agency accused them of ethics rules violations. Besides threatening discipline, EPA imposed prior restraint by ordering them to submit future public communications for advance review. The agency reasoned that the pair violated conflict of interest rules by exploiting their titles and experience for personal views.

After Williams and Zabel sought Administration support, White House Ethics Counsel Norm Eisen’s staff checked with OGE and began discussions with relevant EPA officials. Those talks led to OGE issuing a government-wide ethics guideline opinion on 5 CFR 2635.807(b) to instruct agencies that compliance only requires employees to provide disclaimers that they are speaking for themselves and not the government, and to include other biographical details when identifying themselves. OGE explained the rules:

The purpose of section 807(b)(1) and (b)(2), in conjunction with section 702(b), is to ensure that public is not misled as to whether the views expressed by an Executive Branch employee in uncompensated teaching, writing, or speaking are those of the employee or those of the Government. A too literal parsing of either 807(b)(1) or (b)(2) divorced from this broader purpose could lead to unnecessarily restricting employee’s rights of free speech and commentary. OGE believes that when it is clear from the actual language or context of an employee’s teaching, writing, or speaking that the employee is representing personal rather than agency views, the purpose of the specific provisions discussed above has been met. [emphasis added]

EPA then agreed that Williams and Zabel had not violated ethics rules and lifted restrictions. Freed from censorship, last week they thanked the President and EPA, while blowing the whistle to Congress on offsets as part of a cap-and-trade program. Their disclosure can be found here.

Shield Pakistan’s civilians from the horrors of living inside a human rights-free zone.
“The few days we don’t hear gunfire or explosions, we feel really happy.”
Shield Pakistan’s civilians from the horrors of living inside a human rights-free zone.

Dear amelia,

Northwest Pakistan, including the Swat valley – once known as the “Switzerland of Pakistan” for its scenic and natural beauty – is now the center of a deadly triangle between the Taliban, Pakistani army forces and U.S. drone attacks.

Relentless fighting between these groups has left millions of civilians homeless and unable to care for their families. Countless more have lost their lives in this appalling, human rights-free zone.

As Parveen, a girl’s school teacher who now holds her classes in a tent after the original school building was bombed by the Taliban, sees it: “The few days we don’t hear gunfire or explosions, we feel really happy.”

The innocent men, women and children trapped in the middle of this violence are not acceptable casualties of war. The harm caused to them during such indiscriminate attacks is a clear reason why we must draw a line now.

Act now to ensure that the civilians of northwest Pakistan won’t be forgotten.

The human impact of conflict in Pakistan

Donate Now!

We created the website eyesonpakistan.org to help give private citizens and policy makers access to these previously inaccessible conflict zones. Our thinking was that if we could help people visualize the extent of the violence and human rights abuses in the region, then decisive action would be taken to correct it.

In just a matter of weeks, thousands have visited the website and by using our interactive maps have been able to see the destruction of Pakistan’s schools, hospitals, and homes with their own eyes. The BBC, Huffington Post and other news sites have reported widely on our efforts to expose abuses committed against civilians in the region.

Now that attention is finally starting to focus on Pakistan’s civilians, we must ensure that clear action steps will follow.

Your support means that we can continue to provide compelling imagery and analysis of human rights abuses in Pakistan. This research reinforces our case that the Pakistani and U.S. governments must do more to protect human rights in their strategies for northwest Pakistan.

With your help, we can keep our eyes on Pakistan’s civilians, even when it seems like the rest of the world has forgotten them.

Thank you for taking action,

SB 1070 court ruling:
An “important but partial victory”
Protests set for today and tomorrow

Tell a friend / Forward email Facebook button Twitter button

Statement from the ANSWER Coalition
null
July 10th march in Boston

Today’s decision by the U.S. District Court barring key provisions of the racist, anti-immigrant law SB 1070 is an important but partial victory.

The court decision comes on the eve of the implementation of the Arizona law and as demonstrators are assembling in Phoenix and elsewhere throughout the country. The ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Susan Bolton comes after weeks of intense mobilization, demonstrations and street rallies in states throughout the country. Following the decision by Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer to sign SB 1070 into law, a Boycott Arizona movement has spread from coast to coast. The court’s decision will undoubtedly be challenged. This is all the more reason to intensify the mobilization of the people, in Arizona and everywhere.

Ironically, the preliminary injunction was granted in response to a lawsuit filed by the U.S. Justice Department. The Obama administration, while opposing the Arizona law, has carried out a record number of deportations – far more than were carried out during the last two years of the Bush administration in 2007 and 2008.

The U.S. District Court today granted a preliminary injunction against key provisions of the law. They include:

* The requirement that police officers in Arizona investigate the immigration status of anyone arrested in the state if the police officers “suspect” that the individuals are in the country illegally. This provision institutionalized racial profiling against Latinos and all people of color.
* The imposition of criminal penalties for any non-citizen in Arizona who failed to carry their immigration documents with them or for all immigrants failing to register with the Department of Homeland Security.
* The mandatory arrest of anyone who had been detained for even the most minor offense that would usually result in a ticket or citation, if that individual could not verify that they are legally authorized to be in the United States.
* The allowance of police to arrest individuals, even without an arrest warrant, if they are deemed by police officers to be removable from the United States.
* The creation of a new category making it a crime for undocumented immigrants to be employed in the state of Arizona.

SB 1070 will go into effect tomorrow, but without the provisions of the law that are barred by the preliminary injunction.

The ANSWER Coalition has been deeply involved in the organization of today’s and tomorrow’s demonstrations protesting SB 1070 in Phoenix, Arizona, and in all of the earlier demonstrations in Arizona and around the country.

Without the mobilization of people in the streets throughout the country, the reactionary and racist forces that pushed this law through in Arizona would have succeeded. Moreover, state legislatures throughout the country are watching Arizona with an eye to the outcome of this battle. If this clearly unconstitutional law could take effect in Arizona, racist bigots will eagerly try to pass similar measures in states throughout the country.

The Obama administration’s decision to file a lawsuit against the Arizona law was the consequence of the pressure it felt from an outraged and mobilized population that is demanding the overturn of this racist law. Judge Bolton’s decision today is in response to a number of lawsuits, including one filed by the U.S. Justice Department.

The Obama administration, however, has greatly intensified the arrest and deportation of immigrant workers since it took office in January 2009. As the Washington Post of July 26 reported, “[T]he Obama administration is deporting record numbers of illegal immigrants and auditing hundreds of businesses that blithely hire undocumented workers. The Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency expects to deport about 400,000 people this fiscal year, nearly 10 percent above the Bush administration’s 2008 total and 25 percent more than were deported in 2007. The pace of company audits has roughly quadrupled since President George W. Bush’s final year in office.”

We will continue to organize in the streets and support efforts in the courts to overturn SB 1070 and all federal, state and local laws that criminalize undocumented workers and promote racial profiling against Latinos and other people of color. It is not enough to allow the Obama administration to formally oppose SB 1070 in Arizona while engaging in mass deportations and arrests of immigrant workers.

Instead of mass deportations, the Obama administration should support comprehensive immigration reform that gives millions of super-exploited immigrant workers full legal rights.

This Thursday, July 29, Arizona’s racist, anti-immigrant law, SB 1070, goes into effect. SB 1070 enshrines racial profiling and immigrant bashing into law. A wave of protest has greeted SB 1070 since it was passed in April. Hundreds of thousands of people have taken to the streets in Arizona and across the country. In July, a major demonstration organized by the ANSWER Coalition greeted Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer at a national governors’ conference (see photo to the right).

Protests this week are happening in Arizona and around the country. On July 28, the night before SB 1070 takes effect, ANSWER and other community organizations will gather at the Arizona State Capitol in Phoenix for a march and rally. People are coming from Phoenix, Tucson and Flagstaff in Arizona, as well as Nevada, New Mexico and California to make their voices heard.

Dear MoveOn member,

Yesterday, whistle-blowers released a huge trove of government documents about the War in Afghanistan—many of which raise grave questions about the U.S. strategy and whether it can ever succeed.1 Some are calling these documents “The New Pentagon Papers.”2

This is a critical moment for Congress to review Afghanistan policy. But instead, without even considering the new information, they’re about to vote on a bill to spend an additional $33 billion on the war. The vote could even happen today.3

Can you call Representative Mazie Hirono today? Tell her that Congress must not pass the $33 billion war spending bill until they’ve at least held public hearings on these shocking new revelations. Here’s where to call:

http://pol.moveon.org/call?tg=FHHI_02&cp_id=1412&id=22066-2186682-nSaLodx&t=3

The New York Times reports that “the documents sketch a war hamstrung by an Afghan government, police force and army of questionable loyalty and competence, and by a Pakistani military that appears at best uncooperative and at worst to work from the shadows as an unspoken ally of the very insurgent forces the American-led coalition is trying to defeat.”4

Perhaps most troubling is evidence that Pakistan—supposedly our ally and the recipient of over $1 billion a year in U.S. taxpayer dollars—is secretly supporting attacks on U.S. troops by the Taliban.

According to polls, Americans are increasingly dissatisfied with the nine-year-old war in Afghanistan.5 This latest bombshell makes clear the public’s concerns are well-founded and has reopened the debate over whether this war is really worth fighting.

But despite these new revelations, Congress is expected to vote as soon as today on an additional $33 billion for the war. Before spending one more dime on this war, Congress must hold full, public hearings on the new information that has come to light.

Can you call Rep. Hirono and urge her to demand hearings on the WikiLeaks revelations before the vote on continued funding of the war? Here’s where to call:

Dear MoveOn member,

We’ve just unearthed a shocking new video of right-wing activist Andrew Breitbart.

Breitbart is best known for using highly misleading video “hit pieces” to smear progressives, and his videos have been shown widely by Fox and others.1

Given that, you’d think he’d be more careful about what he says on tape. Guess again.

Check out this shocking video of Breitbart that MoveOn has just obtained:

http://pol.moveon.org/breitbart.html?id=22053-2186682-9orAIlx&t=1

Is this video real? Hey, video can’t lie, right? Just ask CBS, The Washington Post, Fox, and other news outlets who’ve faithfully covered Andrew Breitbart’s videos.

Last week, Breitbart released a highly edited video purporting to show former USDA official Shirley Sherrod making racist comments. He was exposed as a fraud when the full video came to light and it was clear Sherrod was actually making an impassioned case against racism.2

But for 24 hours, the mainstream media covered the edited Sherrod video as though it were real news—just as they’d covered Breitbart’s equally deceptive videos about ACORN that smeared that organization.3

And that’s why it’s so galling that the media is now ignoring MoveOn’s shocking new video of Breitbart himself. Our video, just as truthful as any Breitbart has ever released, deserves equal coverage from the news media.

So please share this video with your friends today on Facebook and Twitter, and forward this email. Here it is again:

http://pol.moveon.org/breitbart.html?id=22053-2186682-9orAIlx&t=4

Thanks for all you do.

Dear Amelia,

Not since the Pentagon Papers have the inner workings of war been exposed to the public in such an explosive fashion as with the WikiLeaks’ revelations on the Afghan war. Last night we talked to Daniel Ellsberg, who made public the Pentagon Papers that helped end the war in Vietnam. He said:

“Wikileaks has given us a picture of the this war that shows a total replay, as in Vietnam, of a corrupt, incompetent set of allies whose main merit is a willingness to be paid by Congress and be supported by the drug trade. We are clearly mired in an escalating stalemate. The troop increase Obama has requested will make no difference.

I admire the courage of Bradley Manning for sacrificing himself to make the public aware of the futility of this war. Let us make sure his sacrifice is not in vain by using these revelations to force Congress to stop funding this war.”

The “leak” comes precisely during the week that Congress will be voting on another $33 billion for war. Thanks to your calls, Congressional visits and determination this past month, the Administration has not been able to get the quick vote on the war funding they requested. Your efforts have had an impact; now we have to open the floodgates of opposition and drown the funding that would send more of our soldiers to die in vain.

To fuel your passion for these calls, here’s the link to the section on civilian casualties, including incidents like the gunner at a roadblock who killed a 14-year-old girl and wounded a toddler or the Marine air strike that left seven children dead. You can also read our WikiLeak talking points here!

Call 888-493-5443 now. Tell your Congressperson that the WikiLeaks’ documents confirm that this war is immoral and unwinnable.

Whether we succeed in blocking the war funding or not, we’ll be able to clearly identify Congressional war enablers and war opponents, so we can punish and reward them when they’re home for August and at the polls in November.

Thank you for turning this leak into a tsunami of anti-war pressure,
Bonnie, Dana, Farida, Gael, Gayle, Joan, Jodie, Medea, Nancy, Rae, and Victoria

What the Wikileaks files TRULY reveal
ANSWER Coalition interview on breaking Wikileaks story
Send a letter to the editor of your newspaper
Brian Becker RT video interview Wikileaks Afghanistan documents
Watch the 2 1/2 minute video
with Brian Becker, National Coordinator
of the ANSWER Coalition, on the
breaking news of the leaked documents

The release of 90,000 secret U.S. military files by the whistleblower website Wikileaks, in its broadest context, reveals that the Obama administration and the Pentagon brass have been and still are fully aware that they are not only losing the war in Afghanistan, but also have no possibility of winning.

The documents present a powerful indictment against the Pentagon, the Obama administration and the Bush administration for their failure to tell the truth about the war in Afghanistan. They provide documentary evidence of the killing of hundreds and perhaps thousands of civilians by U.S. and NATO troops.

The files reveal that the Pentagon set up a secret commando unit called Task Force 373 that is nothing other than a death squad. Task Force 373, made up of Army and Navy Special Operatives, is seeking to assassinate individuals from an assembled list of 2,000 targets.

And despite rosy-sounding publicity missives coming from the Pentagon, the information released on Wikileaks shows an obvious pattern of intensifying bomb attacks against U.S. and NATO forces.

The decision by the Obama administration to send 60,000 additional troops to Afghanistan in 2009 is exposed as nothing other than a decision to send more human beings to their death in an ongoing war that cannot be won, so as to avoid taking the political responsibility for a military setback. That is the rule that all U.S. policymakers abide by. No matter what, they must avoid the appearance of military defeat at the hands of an armed resistance.

The White House condemned the release of the classified documents in the most disingenuous and hypocritical way. It denounced those who provided the files for putting “the lives of U.S. and partner service members at risk.” That is turning reality upside down. It is the Obama administration that is putting the lives of U.S. service members and Afghan civilians “at risk” every day by continuing a war just so that it can avoid the political backlash for suffering a defeat on its watch.

The released documents paint a grim picture that is repeated over and over again involving a large number of previously unknown incidents where U.S. and NATO troops shot and murdered unarmed drivers and motorcyclists.

The documents reveal another incident where French troops used machine guns to strafe a bus full of children in 2008. A military patrol machine gunned another bus, wounding or killing 15 of its civilian passengers. In 2007, Polish troops rained mortar fire down on an Afghan village, killing a wedding party, including pregnant women, in a revenge attack for an earlier insurgent assault.

In April of this year, Wikileaks published the now-famous classified video of a U.S. Apache helicopter murdering 12 Iraqi civilians and seriously wounding children. The Pentagon arrested Bradley Manning, a 22-year-old intelligence analyst in Iraq and has been holding him incommunicado in recent months. Wikileaks has not disclosed whether Manning was the source of the leak of the classified video or the recently released documents, but has announced that it will help provide legal assistance for Bradley Manning.

For months now, the web of lies spun by the White House and Pentagon about the Afghan war has started to come undone. Public support for the Afghan war, along with support from inside the military ranks, continues to decline. But it will take a resurgent anti-war movement to convert this latent frustration into a powerful political force that can finally bring the criminal occupation to an end.

Editor’s Choice
Premature deaths should be the priority for prevention

Fiona Godlee, editor, BMJ

fgodlee@bmj.com

“We must all die from something,” Iona Heath reminds us, lest we forget (doi:10.1136/bmj.c3883). Her point, beautifully made as always, is that we should focus not on reducing mortality, which will always be 100%, but on reducing premature mortality. And this means we must prioritise. “If we continue to fight all causes of mortality, particularly in extreme old age, we have no hope of success,” she writes. “And we will consume an ever increasing proportion of healthcare resources for ever diminishing returns.”

This week’s BMJ features two important global causes of premature mortality: malaria and suicide. Now that TV celebrity Cheryl Cole is on the mend from her recent bout of malaria, it seems reasonable to hope that she’ll find ways to support the fight against the disease. The new WHO guidelines will also help, says Hugh Reyburn (doi:10.1136/bmj.c2637), with their emphasis on parasitological diagnosis in young children wherever possible rather than presumptive treatment. Robert Newman agrees (doi:10.1136/bmj.c2714) but says we’ll never beat malaria unless we train enough health workers in countries where the disease is endemic.

As for suicide, in the UK it kills twice as many people as die on the roads and is the commonest cause of death in young people, surely a problem on which to focus our preventive efforts. Alys Cole-King and Peter Leppina (doi:10.1136/bmj.c3890) say doctors avoid asking about suicidal thoughts for fear of uncovering a risk they will be unable to manage. An emphasis on risk minimisation rather than risk management could help, they say. So too could knowing which methods of attempted suicide carry most risk of completed suicide in the future. Bo Runeson and colleagues found greatest risk in those who had previously tried to jump to their death or to hang, gas, shoot, or drown themselves (doi:10.1136/bmj.c3222).

How best to keep people safe while they get the social and psychological support they need? Putting a barrier across the Bloor Street Viaduct in Toronto stopped people jumping from that bridge but made no difference to the city’s overall rate of death from jumping, according to the study by Mark Sinyor and Anthony Levitt (doi:10.1136/bmj.c2884). D Gunnell and M Miller say that although targeting suicide hotspots is important, more can be achieved by restricting access to highly lethal household methods such as toxic pesticides in developing countries and firearms in the United States (doi:10.1136/bmj.c3054).

Our coverage three weeks ago of deaths and difficulties arising from the use of locums in the UK has upset some locum doctors. Alexandros Tsikoudas rightly points out that “high profile locum disasters are no different from the plethora of non-locum disasters,” such as the serial killings by GP Harold Shipman and the paediatric heart surgery scandal at Bristol Royal Infirmary (doi:10.1136/bmj.c3875). But as he and others go on to say, the UK is unique in relying so heavily on locums to staff its health service. Is this a sign of a failing medical staffing policy, asks Erik Walbeehm (doi:10.1136/bmj.c3876). Would it help if we paid GPs more for out of hours care, asks Timothy Jefferson Cantor (doi:10.1136/bmj.c3881). And why don’t we have a properly staffed scheme to cover the perennial vacancies, asks Peter Trewby (doi:10.1136/bmj.c3880). These are all good questions. While Andrew Lansley turns the NHS upside down—again (doi:10.1136/bmj.c3843)—here’s one bit of it that really needs reform.

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

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.

Dear MoveOn member,

We struggled with whether or not to share this photo, taken of a bird on the beach at East Grand Terre Island, LA on Thursday. It's hard to look at.

But we have to face where our addiction to oil has taken us—and this photo brings that home: (Click here

The disaster in the Gulf of Mexico is heartbreaking—but if an image like this can do anything, it can sear into our minds the fact that we need a real plan to get America off of oil.

Forward this to ten of your friends, and sign the petition to Congress and the White House today:

I, Amelia Gora, am one of the descendants of Kamehameha, one of the heirs of Kauikeouli/Kamehameha III, Crown Land owners, and others including Mikahela Kekauonohi who was a niece, adopted daughter of my ancestors, are the documented land owners since 1848.

Royal persons are not subject to the laws. We are and remain the legal owners of these, and other lands, water, resources, etc.

Historical evidence, genealogy(ies) have been documented and are available at http://www.iolani.wordpress.com or see yahoogroups.com under the hawaiian genealogy society for more information posted regarding all lands owned by our Royal families who are not subject to the laws, and whose ancestors were under duress, stress, usurpation, and coercion, including Queen Liliuokalani in 1893.

James Campbell and his descendants, the Kawananakoa's have criminally claimed lands that they do not own. Their closure of their Trust and conveyances, etc. to the James Campbell Land Company and others remain dubious claims to lands which has owners who were not treasonous to the Hawaiian Kingdom, and moved with the conspirators/pirates documented. The Kawananakoa's including Abigail Ellerbrock, and the Lamberts, et. als. criminally claimed private properties of Royal families whose genealogies supersede their claims of being Royals, additionally, their ancestors were treasonous persons, documented in conspiracies against the Queen, her subjects and our families. It's not O.K. for the Kawananakoa's to ride on our families claims.

Additionally, the claims of a Fake State, the entity Provisional government, evolved into a Republic, a Territory, and a Fake State, supported by a nation -U.S., their Congress, Military, England, and the Morgan(etc.) bankers which claimed Prvate Properties and called it Public Lands are in parts lands criminally claimed by wicked, treasonous, conspirators, plotters against our families, our people, our Queen Liliuokalani discovered through 30 + years of research on our history, your history, the history abroad, our families, the hidden Royal family lines, laws, and so forth.

Oppositions remain in the entity State of Hawaii Governor Linda Lingle in claiming the surfing zones which is held under the jurisdiction of our konohiki ancestor David Keawe/DW Pauahi for Waikiki; and, North Shore which is held under the jurisdiction of our konohiki family member Victoria Kamamalu who was the sister of our ancestor(s) and the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Estates Trustees are not related to us but a consortium of thieves, scoundrels, criminal deviants who conspired against our families, our Queen and our people.

"Honouliuli Forest Reserve dedicated today

By Associated Press

POSTED: 06:34 a.m. HST, Jun 02, 2010

The state and the Trust for Public Land will dedicate the Honouliuli Forest Reserve today.

The trust is handing over the 3,500-acre tract to state forest managers to help protect Oahu's watershed and wildlife habitat.

The trust bought the land from the James Campbell Co.

The land covers a lowland forest on the eastern slope of the Waianae Mountain Range. It's home to 35 threatened and endangered species, including 16 found nowhere else in the world.

The land is also part of the watershed feeding the Pearl Harbor Aquifer, the largest drinking water resource on Oahu.

U.S. Sen. Daniel Inouye and Senate President Colleen Hanabusa are joining Board of Land and Natural Resources Chairwoman Laura Thielen at today's dedication.

"New name for Arizona Memorial Museum Association announced

Advertiser Staff

The nonprofit organization that has long supported the USS Arizona Memorial has changed its name to reflect its broadening mission.

The Arizona Memorial Museum Association on Tuesday changed its name to Pacific Historic Parks.

The association was created in 1979 as a nonprofit cooperating association with the National Park Service to support and fund educational programs, museum displays and exhibits, and interpretive programs for the USS Arizona Memorial.

Many charter members of the association, originally from the Fleet Reserve Association, had been involved in the fundraising for the construction of the USS Arizona Memorial in 1961 and the original visitor center in 1980, officials said.

The Arizona Memorial visitor center now is part of the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument.

The Arizona Memorial Museum Association grew over the years to support interpretive and visitor activities at three additional national parks: American Memorial Park on Saipan; War in the Pacific National Historical Park on Guam; and Kalaupapa National Historical Park on Moloka'i.

"Our association's new name, Pacific Historic Parks, better reflects our expanded scope of support at historical sites throughout the Pacific," said chairman George Sullivan. "Although our name has changed, our mission remains the same. We will continue to preserve and support these historical landmarks …"."

"Lingle's executive order establishes two surfing reserves in Hawaii

Advertiser Staff

Gov. Linda Lingle established surfing reserves by executive order today, resurrecting a measure killed by lawmakers in what could be a first.

The move was a symbolic gesture of support for retiring Republican state Sen. Fred Hemmings, whose bill establishing surfing reserves was "recommitted" in the last day of the legislative session in a move Republicans have taken offense to.

Political onlookers have said they couldn't recall a governor ever issuing an executive order to resurrect a bill killed by lawmakers.

The executive order sets up the reserves, which essentially highlight two surfing spots — in Waikiki and the North Shore — as important in the world of surfing.

The order doesn't have any appropriation, and doesn't change any enforcement or other rules.

"It's like declaring Diamond Head a national monument," said Hemmings, in a news conference today."

World Conspirators Meet in Spain

Many of the most powerful people in the world, including heads of state, foreign ministers, heads of big banks, and leaders of the largest corporations, regularly have secret meetings where they plan to control the world. The Media generally hides these meetings from the public, although the English newspaper The Guardian, Russian Television News, and other news sources do report about it.

Bilderberg 2010–Plutocracy Below the Palm Trees

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/blog/2010/jun/02/charlie-skelton-bilderberg-spain

"For a long and luxurious weekend at the Dolce Sitges, relishing its 'new and creative buffet concepts' (a table with food on it), prime ministers will mingle with European royalty, with various EU commissioners, with representatives from Goldman Sachs, Microsoft, AIB, Deutsche Bank, Chase Manhattan and Royal Dutch Shell."

Goldman Sachs, known as "Government Sachs" because so many of its personnel hold high positions in the U.S. Government, is a key player.

What is their plan? It is the end of nations, the end of the white race, the end of Christianity, the end of traditional values, and a new global economy where most people are equal….equally poor and powerless. An American will have the same rights as tribesman in New Guinea or a farmer in the Congo. Everyone will have the same wages and the same medical care and the same pensions (if any). At the top will be the billionaire elite, like the folks at Goldman Sachs, some of the jaded royalty of Europe, some heads of huge international corporations, like BP, the people who run the Media, and some liberal anti-white, anti-traditional value pseudo-intellectuals. There will still be the pretense of democracy, but the controlled Media will tell people what to think, and hate-speech and political correctness laws will muzzle all dissenters and punish them economically.

The world does need a world government to solve the overwhelming problems that threaten our survival. But I have a better idea of how it should be handled.

Here is a list of attendees at the lasting meeting:

http://govtslaves.info/2010/01/07/bilderberg-2010-attendees-list-in-greece-revealed/

Some people claim it is a Jewish conspiracy, but only about 40% of the attendees are Jewish. There are also a few people with old Nazi connections who have attended these meetings too.

I actually like one of them, Professor Niall Ferguson, who has some excellent ideas on history and economics.

hi,

Thank you for posting this article which reveals some interesting people uniting to plan the future, including the Worlds innocents.

Attendee(s)using our Hawaiian Royal Families assets without authority:

Goldman and Sachs – Kamehameha Schools Bishop Estates, a pirating, racketeering, criminal Trust based on fraud, criminal conveyances, claims,did invest in them and owns 40%+ interest. The transactions of this Trust created in the Hawaiian Kingdom period has been operating by pirates, conspirators, treasonous persons since 1884 who conspired against Hawaii's Royal Families,Queen Liliuokalani, and her 40,000 subjects (versus the 3,000 treasonous, conspirators supported by the U.S. military, government, Presidents, Morgan bankers, England, and the international bankers).

Trustees claimed to be the heirs, when descendants/heirs of the Royal Families exist. Issues continue. Genocide issue continue. Racketeering, corruption, and problematic issues exposed for the World to see. Ramifications are ongoing.

Attendee affecting the criminal Plundering Upon Innocents in the Middleeast, affecting perpetual Wars for OIL:

Rockefellers are the permanent CEO's of the EXXON Oil Corporation, formerly Standard Oil Company (umbrella monopoly corporation with hundreds/thousands of corporations under their cover), owners of the 911 Twin Towers, and gifted the land for the United Nations which moves towards One World Order/New World Order.

Those who signed the 1822 Secret Treaty of Verona – Austria, France, Russia, Prussia, U.S., England, and the Vatican continue to have members actively pursuing the moves towards One World Order/New World Order.

Belgium, Netherlands, and Spain Monarchs attend, which is interesting because the 1822 Secret Treaty of Verona, seeks to destroy Monarchy governments.

Conspirators of nations meet to be among their compadres, when their citizens can do something about it if they don't want to be SLAVES, be exterminated, imprisoned, etc.

In other words, these groups basically represent the united minority of WARMONGERS, WAR FINANCIERS, scum and scoundrels who would like to enforce their agenda on the masses or the majority.

Message: Research and Study these plotters moving to take away your liberties, enslave you, kill of the environment, poison, make toxic, extermination practices of nuclear weapons such as DU/Depleted Uranium use affecting everyone in the World today …..Watch them and TAKE BACK YOUR GOVERNMENTS……….especially for Americans whose Congressmen and Presidents are treasonous against their own!

aloha.

appears you haven't taken much Sociology or Psychology courses…..or even Social Change/Modernization/Urbanization courses………….

the terminology used over time by the haole are those to deliberately put down, diminish, etc.

such terms used are "children" which makes our people "less than"………don't fall for that move to make our people "less than".

another term is "indigenous" which is recognized by the United Nations as "less than" persons/ groups incapable of ownership of lands, those without entitlement, have nothing, are nothing, and recognized as people who exist with nothing – no ownership of anything…..

you have to get out of thinking American/Amerikkkan.

anytime you need someone to set you on that path of non-violence…..you know some of the Gora's ….some of them will also set you straight as well……we are non-violent, and can give some new meanings to lip service, which is intended to teach varying kinds of people….those who are sweet and tender, and those who are rough, and at times even those who are pilau — what a waste of good energy to interact with those dubious types who don't even live here in the islands.

it is truly amazing to me how our Hawaiian people don't look up their ancestors and go back on their lands, or rent, lease it…………it's irritating to see some of our people stuck and believing the crap that the criminal deviants, pirates around us put out…………….

btw, the heads at the Bureau of Conveyances just last week are discussing the movement of our Hawaiian Kingdom books……if you didn't know already, the intent of the AKAKA BILL is to destroy all the books and transfer all lands once and for all to the U.S.

so, if you have digital cameras folks………howz about working on a project to capture all of the books before the PIRATES criminally discard all?

yes, you've heard it first here…………

btw………why the hell are you talking about Tienaman and other areas that doesn't pertain to us…….my Dad was a seer, like Kamehameha, and he said to stay away from the Chinese…….. maybe i'll say more off of the web…….or ask certain Gora's if they know…….many know more about our ancestors ruling Japan for nearly 300 years than our Hawaiian genealogies….and then certain Gora's know more about our Apache ancestor Geronimo than our Hawaiian ancestors……the fact remains, like marries like……which is why everyone should find out about their roots, etc.

Maintain a neutral, non-violent nation, otherwise, do not link yourself to the Hawaiian Kingdom, because I for one will disclaim anyone with the intent to cause violence. period. end of story.

aloha.

SAME NEWS OVER AND OVER AGAIN?

commentary by Amelia Gora (2010)

Yes indeed. Three (3) legal notices is desirable; however, in the Hawaiian Kingdom Legal Notices, four (4) legal notices appeared during King David Kalakaua's period.

The specific issues in the above are about the United States criminal moves mucking up the environment, in our Hawaiian Islands, moving to assume lands, aggressive moves to assume our water, our resources, blatant disregard for iwi, descendants existing/true owners claims,

I've posted issues about the Bishop Estates and how they have bought into the Goldman and Sachs stock markets, and did file an opposition to that shortly after (years ago)……wanted everyone to read the fact that CONGRESSMEN/Women are the INVESTORS in Goldman and Sachs too…..which means, they too are feeding off of PIRATED monies which were expended to float the Goldman and Sachs stock markets…….and don't forget the fact that MACY's stores, formerly Liberty House, is also part of that financing scheme due to the investments of the KSBE /Bishop Estates support…….etc……..MACY's beginnings are based on the use of Kamehameha families monies because one of the original owners named George Macy claimed his child was the grandson of some of Kamehameha's descendants named Kaili (w) married to Kahiamoe (k)………..many descend from them including our families……….so, research continues in maintaining all lands of our families by going over the MACY's claims as well………..if you look in the PAAOAO Probate, Second Circuit Court, you'll find that two (2) children were documented –the youngest two that is, named: Wahineaea (w) and Kamauoha (k)……..they are siblings of our tutu……..and the funny thing is that the Macy's claim to be tied to a sister named PIENA (w)….checked the dates, and funny thing….the dates don't match up!

George Macy participated in dethroning our Queen Liliuokalani in 1893, and what do you know? He became the first INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE Head to collect (wrongfully) taxes for bankrupt U.S. who supported the criminal entity Provisional government which evolved into the Republic then Territory and Executive Ordered entity State of Hawaii with documented oppositions throughout the criminal history due to the documented premeditation or standing order by CONGRESS, and the U.S. President Benjamin Harrison who were in collusion in criminally assuming a friendly, neutral, non-violent nation recognized as the Hawaiian Kingdom and the Pacific Empire with Aetearoa, and the Samoan Islands since Kamehameha's period (1810-1819).

Here's the important documents, once again:

What about U.S. President Obama who was born in the Hawaiian Kingdom, a friendly, neutral nation that went "under ground"?

Obama is one of the descendants of the BOOTH family, who has direct connects to the BANK OF HAWAII………….so, doesn't that mean he's a BANKSTER, a Bankrupt, User of our Hawaiian monies?…………….the Queen Liliuokalani Trust was held by that BANK OF HAWAII……….research incomplete………..A while back, I had posted the facts that our Queen had denied that she signed a Trust Deed, and even has it documented on her WILL…. then, remember Prince Kuhio (and brother Prince Kawananakoa) took lands in Waikiki as an OUT OF COURT SETTLEMENT……………yes, those documents will be posted soon (again)…….and, I'll give all of you a hint……the TRUE Queen Liliuokalani Trustees are kanaka maoli, and thru years(!) of research, much has been uncovered…..showing yet more evidence of PIRATES, Criminal racketeers operating utilizing OUR families trusts!………oops, premature or too much info..slip of the lip (the Portugee/Portuguese lip) …….lol…….but there's more to come………providing OBAAAMA doesn't shut down the internet which is currently being proposed by the U.S. lawbreakers/law makers….

once again, review why your CONGRESSMEN/Women, and PRESIDENTS are treasonous by reading John Nelson, legal researchers article at

http://myweb.ecomplanet.com/GORA8037

Americans, will you please control or take back your government, less the new constitution that they are currently operating on?

Kanaka maoli – it would be perfectly acceptable to present charges of Terrorist activities against a neutral, non violent nation the Hawaiian Kingdom and charges of genocide too….. because that's all that is needed…..the Hawaiian Kingdom Courts and the International Court which follows the directions of the U.S., etc…….the complaint and charges are already recorded in our Royal Families House of Nobles Records along with all the Genocide Activities List of People which has also been recorded with the Honolulu Police Department File No. 98-273435 AF-CFdated July 23, 1998 in answer to my letter of July 17, 1998 regarding genocide activities in Hawaii "Your complaint has been made a matter of official record under police report number 98-273435." – LEE D.

Hawaiian Flags

A Review

by Amelia Gora, a Royal person (2010)

A prophesy was stated that when the true Hawaiian flag was brought out, many things would happen……..or something like that……….however, it just may be a good thing!

1868 – found at the Archives, Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii – Kahn Collection – million dollar collection:

1891

King Kalakaua's flag
1893

(not the flag but some of the soldiers who came off the ship to place duress upon our Queen, our subjects on January 15-16 or 1-2 days BEFORE dethroning our Queen)

1898

1993

Kanaka Maoli flag:

aloha.

p.s. The flag depicted under the heading of the "sandwich islands" although black and white….appears to be as follows:

Stripes: white, dark blue, red, white, dark blue, red, white, and dark blue.

also, for added information….the flag that has been flying over our Hawaiian Islands since January 8, 1893 or when U.S. Congress and then President Benjamin Harrison's period of 1893 is this one:

The wonderful celebration of Ho'iho'i ea is ironically preceded on June 19 by Juneteenth and the emancipation of the African American slaves. Before the Americans occupied our country it had already described the rights of slaves in terms of its own constitution. Where are the Hawaiians described in the American constitution?

I can not find them and I can only see our position as a form of slavery. Yes, our oppression is gold plated and the chains manacle our wrist only if we refuse to give up "Who we are" and our absolute ownership of our lands.

Perhaps next year we can organize to remember our bondage or better yet our emancipation. I would propose we produce our own order to the Americans

"The people of America are informed that in accordance with a

As most people know I am a cut of the missionary cloth in Hawaii. I never kept this away from my activism and nor did I not remember my great grandparents and their involvement with the Kue petition. As a matter of fact all my grandparents were born into this enivronment and my parents and myself have carried on their wishes until today.

However, allow me to share: Samuel Mills an active player in the Haystack Committee (200 years ago) and this is at the time that the capitalism and charity split into two distinct groups in America. What most don't understand is the mechanism of 'need' base. I don't have time to explain… Charity work (which is who I am) and capitalism have been structured to intergrate for 200 years which is the basic problem with welfare and military budget on the American hill.

Samuel Mills approximat 200 years ago, created the idea of 'Gospel of Salvation' he meant it for the emanciaption of the African American slaves from the continent of Africa My grandparents Auld and Mitchell created a chain of Gospel of Salvation in Hawaii.

Which is the bases of Protestants in Hawaii. Through this I see your posting, 200 years of missionary in Hawaii and your "between partner nation and a free people of a sovereign nation."

This is where I loose it, because of the economics.
Yesterday front page in the uni newspaper(don't have the citation) 4 thousand plus homeless (a lie) without basic income. Why is this a stupid lie? Back to the past, "need' which is nothing but a cash crop. Maintaing the need to bring in federal dollars into the states pig troughs is the unintended missonary charity work in the State of Hawaii. The 'obama'(capitalist) from my view was to continue the missionary capitalistic run of the mill federal reserve banking system in their global market. And at a high school level? Very dangerous stuff! But, so was Reagan (regonomics).

For me, I try to keep a balance, I ask that you go and look at page 308 of the Kue Petition on the Oahu men side of things. Look at the names, I was raised in that 'think tank' I don't know if I was suppose to carry on the 'no treaty no annexation' or no one man one vote, all I know is they (my auld and mitchell side) were totally against a plebiscite (sp) in Hawaii. There is more to day and I appreciate your posting. Yes, it needs freedom and equality, but from my view we need Independence first than all the other stuff can come after.

I can see how you might read "Partner Nation". I refer to the relationship described in the treaty of friendship between the Hawaiian Kingdom and American. Partnership is an idea of equal status and power to say no to the other when they step out of bounds. We have had a historical relationship with the occupiers and I suggest we move to a positive one.

We can not have a legitimate relationship with America until they remove their military and stop interfering in our foreign and domestic policies.

What treaty of annexation?

Oh the one between the pirates and the traitors, that one has no effect on Hawaiian law.

Maikai no kou mana'o i'o, e Kai. Some native Hawaiians rather have the Hawaiian Homes Commission Act with it's Bloom Quantum with the United States over a legitimate relationship with America. After all the American military is in Hawaiian to protect their rights as "Americans of Hawaiian Ancestory", or AHA. As you have to be an American to receive the benefit of a homestead thru the Hawaiian Homes Commission Act. The Treaties that the United States signed with the Kingdom of Hawaii are still in place. This is one of the reasons of the AKaKa BILL. To reorganize the Hawaiian Kingdom and to terminate the Treaties between the United States and the Hawaiian Kingdom.

Pilau white men-female always attack Blood Quantum and Hawaiian Homes Commission Act. Talking out of their ass mostly, cause nothing else works. DHHL is a natalist program to keep up with the dying race. Which white men-female love to destroy, hurt and kill from their closet. Mark Twain's post Civil War abuse to native Hawaiian women are perpetuated by stupid white-female veterans that came in from foul air via SanFrancisco.

Stinking up the air is all that one does with pilau his-his talk.

I am sorry to see you two having such bad feelings for each other. I hope you can forgive any trespass. I work to improve the rights and life of all Hawaiian people. I do not believe we need American constructions of Hawaiian land use.

I would rather have you design the Lei Ali'i land use program than the congress or the administration of the fake state. I believe we have enough resource for 2% and 98% in Aloha aina.

FCC in move to regulate internet

FCC Moves to Regulate Internet–Even Though the Law Calls for Internet to be 'Unfettered by Federal or State Regulation'
Friday, June 18, 2010
By Matt Cover, Staff Writer

CNSNews.com) – The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted on Thursday to begin the formal process of bringing the Internet under greater federal control – a move sought by both President Barack Obama and FCC Chairnman Julius Genachowski–even though federal law calls for an Internet "unfettered by Federal or State regulation."

This step comes after the federal D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals in April rebuked the FCC in its attempt to enforce a controversial regulatory doctrine called Net Neutrality, which would allow the government to prevent private Internet providers from deciding which applications to allow on their networks.

The court said that the FCC did not have the authority to prevent Comcast, specifically, from blocking certain peer-to-peer Web sites.
http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/68003

snakeweasle:

"Can you cite internet providers that are blocking sites of their own choosing?"

"The FCC in 2008 censured Comcast for blocking subscribers using peer-to-peer software often used to view videos, a decision hailed by consumer groups as a step toward keeping Web traffic free of obstruction from corporations."
http://bit.ly/d1HC5x

This was big news a couple of years ago. I'm surprised you missed it.

While P2P is essentially a "technology" as opposed to a "site", as I'm sure you will bring up, P2P technologies and methodologies are used by an increasing number of some sites to provide content. Even were this not the case, it starts us down a "slippery slope" whereby providers could decide, based on their individual interests, what content would be available to their customers. Would you like it if for example you could only make or receive calls to other Sprint customers on your Sprint phone? I think not.

Bottom line: when the government starts wanting to proscribe what internet providers can PROVIDE as opposed to what they may BLOCK I will start to worry.

You do realize that Internet Neutrality is essential to a free and open Internet don't you? Without some kind of regulation of this sort providers would be able to favor their OWN content, slowing down or blocking content from rivals, thus creating a de facto corporate censorship of content based on the users' provider, and I can't imagine anyone wanting something like this."

Mort Zuckerman: World Sees Obama as Incompetent and Amateur
The president is well-intentioned but can't walk the walk on the world stage
By Mortimer B. Zuckerman
Posted June 18, 2010
President Obama came into office as the heir to a great foreign policy legacy enjoyed by every recent U.S. president. Why? Because the United States stands on top of the power ladder, not necessarily as the dominant power, but certainly as the leading one. As such we are the sole nation capable of exercising global leadership on a whole range of international issues from security, trade, and climate to counterterrorism. We also benefit from the fact that most countries distrust the United States far less than they distrust one another, so we uniquely have the power to build coalitions. As a result, most of the world still looks to Washington for help in their region and protection against potential regional threats.

Barack Obama: Let Them Eat Tar Balls
So many parties, so little time.

You are Barack Obama, and you know how to party. And now, as oil hits the Florida beaches and dying wildlife and desperate Louisiana fishermen fill the cable news in searing testimony to what Reuters is calling our "worst environmental disaster," you are doing what you do best…party.

Your bureaucrats have been saying "No we can't" to request after request for assistance along the Gulf Coast, but for you it has been "Yes we can" as you spend taxpayer dollars on entertainment at a greater rate than any U.S. president. Your parties have averaged one every three days and your vacations seem endless as you've satisfied the vow of your former social secretary to bring "the same kind of [party] environment" you had in Chicago to the White House.

You weren't known for your attention to business in the Illinois state senate, but, as one friend said about you and Michelle, "if there was a party or an event, they were there." And as little as you did in the Illinois and the U.S. senates, you've been doing even less in the Gulf, notes radio host Hugh Hewitt.

News flash. The United States engages in secret war.

To millions of Americans, and hundreds of millions around the world, this is not news. It's part of an ongoing part of U.S. foreign policy.

Last century is littered with examples. Chile, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Korea, Congo, Somalia, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Indonesia, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Cuba, Panama, Grenada, Haiti, Colombia, Poland, Hungary, Yugoslavia, Soviet Union … shall I go on?

All these countries — and more — have had U.S. special forces deployed in them. Many of them under the auspices of the CIA or the Pentagon or some other U.S. military/intelligence group, including private corporations.

Some of these operations have been run out of the basement of the White House. (Last century's Reagan and Iran-gate) Some have been run out of the vice president and president's offices. (This century's Bush/Cheney and Iraq, Afghanistan … )

All of these operations have had the goal of crushing democracy and any budding socialist-oriented or worker-friendly movements or nations, controlling resources, including labor, for U.S. corporations, and, especially during the Cold War, blunting the Soviet Union. Some of these operations have assassinated people, including elected leaders.

(It's also important to point out these "special ops" also happen on U.S. soil: re: COINTELPRO ,etc. That is one reason in the1970s Sen. Frank Church and a Senate committee investigated the CIA and FBI and found the CIA conducts "covert media operations" in the U.S. to "manipulate" public opinion. Hmmm. Sounds eerily familiar to 2002-2003 Iraq war build up.)

But recently, The Washington Post reports President Obama has "significantly expanded a largely secret U.S. war against al-Qaeda and other radical groups." A reality, they say, in a post-Sept. 11 world.
The article continues, "Special Operations forces have grown both in number and budget, and are deployed in 75 countries, compared with about 60 at the beginning of last year. In addition to units that have spent years in the Philippines and Colombia, teams are operating in Yemen and elsewhere in the Middle East, Africa and Central Asia."

There are 13,000 such special operatives, according to the report, with 9,000 of them mainly in Iraq and Afghanistan. Eighty percent of them, one official said, are to resolve "current conflicts."

Assassinations and drone attacks are part of the operations, yet, WaPo reports, they "go beyond unilateral strikes and include the training of local counter-terrorism forces and joint operations with them."

The Atlantic Monthly, in a recent blog post called "The end of Dick Cheney's kill squads," says there is considerable difference in Obama secret warfare policy and the Bush/Cheney years.

Comparing it to Seymour Hersh's expose of the Bush/Cheney "executive assassination ring" AM says, "While reports for some time have indicated that the Obama administration has continued and even expanded military special operations throughout the world, it is now clear that he has increased oversight and ended the Bush-era practice running secret military operations directly from the presidential and vice president offices."

AM calls it "an important change to the Bush-era use of military special operations," which now is overseen by "regional military commanders as well as the State Department."

But, AM, questions, like many, the expansion of secret warfare, without any judicial oversight, legal (or moral) authority, including assassination orders, which only continues the "judge, jury and executioner"-type of foreign policy of old.

The secret war report somewhat eclipsed the release of the Obama administration's new National Security Strategy, which, by all reports, looks "beyond" military might to "maintain" U.S. influence and interests around the world; emphasizes diplomacy and development; does away with unilateralism of the Bush/Cheney era and emphasizes building "global institutions," expanding partnerships and multilateralism beyond "traditional allies."

Many have said it's a departure from the saber-rattling of the Bush administration, but does not go far enough in a break with past, destructive foreign policies, and is a long way from a more "good neighbor"-type of policy.

At a recent progressive conference, America's Future NOW!, speakers on foreign policy emphasized the shift , but also said there has to be a larger and more influential movement on the ground to win a significant change.

Reply by Kaohi 17 hours ago
June 22, 2010 — The introduction of a new Senate bill, S.3480, dubbed the “Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act of 2010,” is sparking concerns about a massive power grab over the Internet under the guise of “national security.”

The bill, proposed by Sen. Joe Lieberman (I — CT) claims the entire Internet, the whole global computer network and everything on it, as a “national asset” of the United States, and seeks to give President Obama the power to seize control over broad swaths of it with no oversight during a “National Cyber Emergency,” which would itself be something the president would be able to declare at any time.

But easily the most controversial aspect of the nearly 200 page bill is what is being called a “kill switch,” granting the president the power to shut down the entire Internet across the planet for national security reasons. Sen. Collins (R — ME), a supporter of the bill, claimed it was necessary to prevent a “cyber 9/11.”

The bill amounts to a remarkable claim of presidential power, claiming a large portion of the global economy as a specific asset of the United States and further claiming the right to nationalize or destroy it in whole or part on a whim. The news may be disquieting enough for Americans faced with this sort of power grab from their own government, but for foreigners the idea that another nation can commandeer the Internet, cut them off from it, or render it unusable is totally shocking, and not surprisingly, a source of no small consternation.

When reading through the bill, one can’t notice how frankly it claims such enormous powers, or imagine how shocked the entire planet would be if Sen. Lieberman proposed the same measures without adding the prefix “cyber” to every few words. Couching it as a technical matter, with the usual technical ignorance of a Congressman thrown in for good measure, is a way to hide exactly how sweeping the new powers would truly be.

In fact Sen. Lieberman insisted that the very fact that the internet is now “a necessity of modern life” was the justification behind his bill. We can’t, it seems, have billions of people worldwide living a modern life without the president’s imprimatur

Sightings.com Is Back!

In 1994, Jeff Rense created his award-winning radio program in Santa Barbara, covering the UFO and Paranormal field in addition to a carefully-selected number of geopolitical, health and other eclectic topics. The program was called ‘The End Of The Line with Jeff Rense’ and Jeff still uses that same name as his subtitle after 17 years on the air.

During this time, Jeff also launched his famed Sightings.com website to expand upon the program and to explore and develop the exploding potential of the internet. In fact, Jeff was a primary pioneer in the interactive use of a live, nationally-syndicat ed radio talk program and an interactive website working in tandem to present leading and controversial personalities and information.

While with Premiere, Jeff’s Sightings On Radio and Sightings.com successfully rivaled the immensely popular Coast-to-Coast show and website… until Jeff realized that world events and geopolitical subjects were moving far too fast and growing far too serious to have them stand behind a generally paranormal venue. After 12 years as an award-winning network affiliate television news director and anchorman, Jeff was growing more and more determined to push back, hard, at the mass of propaganda and mind control the controlled mainstream media had become.

So, in 1999, Jeff changed course and began to roll out an information super-storm which spanned his program, now the Jeff Rense Program and his enormously popular net site, now renamed Rense.com… which became the internet’s first truly ‘alternative’ news forum featuring views, commentary and information of national and international substance and importance found virtually nowhere else.

Now, to start the second decade of the new century, Jeff Rense has joined forces with the inimitable, remarkable Brian Vike, to re-launch Sightings.com as its own unique research and reporting platform expressly devoted to the UFO, ET and paranormal genres. Brian, through many years of intensely devoted efforts through his HBCC UFO Research site, has amassed an enormous database of encounters and reports, second only to Peter Davenport’s 15 years of meticulously recorded and reported treasury of UFO sightings and events of often highest strangeness.

The UFO issue – which Jeff often refers to as the most important of all – is so dynamically interwoven into real-world affairs that it deserves its own venue of this nature and scope. So long as we remain in a struggle against controlling oligarchies determined to drown the public in lies, disinformation, treasonous subterfuge and mind-control, the insulting, vile UFO cover-up remains a central element in the planned deception and manipulation of essential realities to which every person should be firmly awakened. To this end, Sightings.com renews its vigorous role in shining light into the darkness and illuminating this profoundly important issue of truly cosmic proportions.

Sightings.com hopes to help expand the awareness of the cosmic conspiracy, and further assist in enlightening the public to what many astronauts, astrophysicists, airline pilots and military aviators have repeatedly asserted… that ET visitation and UFOs are REAL. We hope you’ll stop in often and participate with us on this ongoing journey.

Our best,
Brian Vike

Historic Victory at Oakland Port –
Israeli Ship Blocked from Unloading

Facebook button

Oakland port action 387×246

Oakland port action 2

In a historic action and unprecedented action today, over 800 labor and community activists blocked the gates of the Oakland docks in the early morning hours, prompting longshore workers to refuse to cross the picketlines where they were scheduled to unload an Israeli ship.

From 5:30 am to 9:30 am, a militant and spirited protest was held in front of four gates of the Stevedore Services of America, with people chanting non-stop, “Free, Free Palestine, Don’t Cross the Picket Line,” and “An injury to one is an injury to all, bring down the apartheid wall.”

Citing the health and safety provisions of their contract, the International Longshore and Warehouse Union workers refused to cross the picketline to report for duty.

Between 8:30 and 9:00 am, an emergency arbitration was conducted at the Maersk parking lot nearby, with an “instant” arbitrator called to the site to rule on whether the workers could refuse to cross the picketline without disciplinary measure.

At 9:15 a.m, after again reviewing the protests of hundreds at each gate, the arbitrator ruled in favor of the union that it was indeed unsafe for the workers to enter the docks.

To loud cheers of “Long Live Palestine!” Jess Ghannam of Free Palestine Alliance and Richard Becker of the ANSWER Coalition announced the victory. Ghannam said, “This is truly historic, never before has an Israeli ship been blocked in the United States!”

The news that a container ship from the Zim Israeli shipping line was scheduled to arrive in the Bay Area today has sparked a tremendous outpouring of solidarity for Palestine, especially in the aftermath of the Israeli massacre of volunteers bringing humanitarian aid to Gaza on May 31.

With 10 days advance notice of the ship’s arrival, the emergency “Labor/Community Committee in Solidarity with the Palestinian People” was set up. On Wednesday, some 110 people from unions and community came to help organize logistics, outreach and community support. Initiating organizations included the Al-Awda Palestine Right to Return Coalition, the ANSWER Coalition, the Bay Area Labor Chapter of USLAW and the Bay Area Labor Committee for Peace & Justice.

This week the San Francisco Labor Council and Alameda Labor Council passed resounding resolutions denouncing Israel’s blockade of Gaza. Both councils sent out public notices of the dock action.

The ILWU has a proud history of extending its solidarity to struggling peoples the world over. In 1984, as the Black masses of South Africa were engaged in an intense struggle against South African apartheid, the ILWU refused for a record-setting 10 days to unload cargo from the South African “Ned Lloyd” ship. Despite million-dollar fines imposed on the union, the longshore workers held strong, providing a tremendous boost to the anti-apartheid movement.

Today’s Oakland action, in the sixth largest port in the United States, is the first of several protests and work stoppages planned around the world, including Norway, Sweden and South Africa. It is sure to inspire others to do the same.

The goal is for a 24-hour shutdown of the docks where the Israeli ship is docked, so the protest is planned again for 4:30 p.m. Click here for details of the 4:30 p.m. protest.

Subject: Act now to stop executive-order amnesty

From: Roy Beck, President, NumbersUSA
Date: Tuesday 22JUN2010 9 a.m. EDT

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION CONSIDERING EXECUTIVE-ORDER AMNESTY FOR MILLIONS BECAUSE CAN’T GET VOTES IN CONGRESS

PEOPLE LIKE YOU ARE THE ONLY WAY TO FIGHT THIS

This is a true red-alert danger. Read below for background, but please take action immediately.

TAKE ACTION: Send faxes

to your 3 Members of Congress that warn them of the plot and urge them to speak out against it.

http://www.numbersusa.com/faxes?ID=12309

Your great success in keeping Congress from voting on a mass amnesty this year has stirred up a new threat.

Seeing that most Members of Congress are scared to death to vote for an amnesty in an election year, Administration officials are working on ways to do a de facto amnesty without involving Congress.

We at NumbersUSA have been hearing about this behind the scenes for a few weeks now but haven’t had solid enough evidence to mount a national mobilization against. Now, the whispering has erupted with an open letter to the President from 8 U.S. Senators (see below my signature) spelling out the details known thus far.

In a nutshell, there is discussion going on within the Administration about stopping nearly all deportations, presumably until “comprehensive immigration reform” can be passed to give illegal aliens full work and residency rights permanently.

I am guessing that this is what religious leaders were hinting at the Brookings conference I attended last week. They indicated that they had been talking with Administration officials about a way to help illegal aliens without having to deal with Congress. They then said they had better not say any more about it.

Friends, U.S. Presidents have proven whether Republican or Democrat that they are capable of doing almost anything they please until they come up for re-election. Only an incredible outburst of outrage from the public can stop the Administration from doing a de facto amnesty all by itself.

Your faxing today is just the first part of the outburst that we are mobilizing.

We need all 535 Members of Congress to know about the De Facto Amnesty Plot — and to know that you know. We want Democrats in Congress to begin to tell their Leaders and the White House that even the hint that this amnesty could happen will hurt their chances of winning in the fall. We want Republicans to start threatening to use the Plot as a campaign issue.

We want the White House to publicly promise that it will NOT unilaterally proclaim an amnesty. Short of that, we want to see the White House forced to deny over and over that such a plot is even underway.

Send the faxes now.

We will come back later with more actions to take.

THANKS,

Roy Beck’s signature

Roy Beck, President NumbersUSA

LETTER FROM 8 SENATORS

Dear President Obama:

We understand that there’s a push for your Administration to develop a plan to unilaterally extend either deferred action or parole to millions of illegal aliens in the United States. We understand that the Administration may include aliens who have willfully overstayed their visas or filed for benefits knowing that they will not be eligible for a status for years to come. We understand that deferred action and parole are discretionary actions reserved for individual cases that present unusual, emergent or humanitarian circumstances. Deferred action and parole were not intended to be used to confer a status or offer protection to large groups of illegal aliens, even if the agency claims that they look at each case on a “case-by-case” basis.

While we agree our immigration laws need to be fixed, we are deeply concerned about the potential expansion of deferred action or parole for a large illegal alien population. While deferred action and parole are Executive Branch authorities, they should not be used to circumvent Congress’ constitutional authority to legislate immigration policy, particularly as it relates to the illegal population in the United States.

The Administration would be wise to abandon any plans for deferred action or parole for the illegal population. Such a move would further erode the American public’s confidence in the federal government and its commitment to securing the borders and enforcing the laws already on the books.

We would appreciate receiving a commitment that the Administration has no plans to use either authority to change the current position of a large group of illegal aliens already in the United States, and ask that you respond to us about this matter as soon as possible.

End These Secret Meetings!

Dear Friend,

The Wall Street Journal just revealed that the FCC has been convening secret backroom meetings with phone and cable lobbyists to cut a deal on Net Neutrality.

The closed-door meetings have included a small group of lobbyists from AT&T, Verizon and Google. The goal, according to insiders, is to “reach consensus” on rules of the road for the Internet.

This is outrageous. The FCC can’t ignore the public’s demand for Net Neutrality and then quietly give control over the Internet to a few massive corporations.

Tell Obama and the FCC: Stop These Secret Meetings

President Obama pledged to “take a back seat to no one” in his support for Net Neutrality. To head the FCC, he appointed Julius Genachowski, the man who crafted his pro-Net Neutrality platform in 2008.

But even after millions of people joined Obama’s call for Net Neutrality, FCC staff is huddling with industry lobbyists in secret to cut a deal that could leave the free and open Internet in jeopardy.

This plot is all too familiar. We’ve seen it before, during the BP oil disaster and the subprime mortgage meltdown, when government officials put the interests of big business ahead of those of the public.

Now, the same thing is happening to the Internet. We can’t let the one agency tasked with oversight of communications strike secret deals that undermine Net Neutrality.

Don’t Let Lobbyists Determine the Future of the Internet

Sign our letter to President Obama and the FCC to end the secret meetings and guarantee that the public — including the tens of millions of Americans who use the Internet every day and in every way — is given a seat at the table.

Thank you,

TomDispatch.com: A Regular Antidote to the Mainstream Media

June 22, 2010
Tomgram: Michael Klare, The Coming Era of Energy Disasters

Isn’t it strange that, no matter how terrible the news from the Gulf, the media still can’t help offering a lurking, BP-influenced narrative of hope? Here’s a recent headline

from my hometown paper, for instance: “Signs of Hope as BP Captures Record Oil Amounts.” The piece is based on a BP report that, last Thursday, its woefully inadequate

, ill-fitting “top hat” had captured more than 25,000 barrels of the gushing oil — that is, five times

more than it long claimed was spewing from its busted well (25 times more than it originally suggested).

With semi-official estimates in the range of 35,000-60,000 barrels escaping a day (and those numbers regularly on the rise), this represents a strange version of hopeful news. Ominously enough, by the end of July, with a new, larger, “tighter” cap theoretically in place, BP is aiming to capture up to 80,000 barrels

a day (that is, 20,000 barrels more than it has publicly acknowledged

might possibly be spewing from the floor of the Gulf). In all such articles, the real narrative of hope, however, involves the relief wells, the first of which is now within “200 feet” of the busted well. Usually, the date for one of those wells to plug the leak is given as “early August” or “mid-August” and it’s regularly said that the drilling of those wells is advancing “ahead of schedule.”

Whatever “signs of hope” do exist, however, they’re already badly beslimed by on-gushing reality. On the very day that BP announced its 25,000-barrel capture, huge amounts of methane

were also reported to be pouring into the Gulf. Until now, this had evidently been largely overlooked (or under-reported), even though methane in high concentrations can deplete water of its oxygen and so suffocate marine life, creating vast dead zones and inhibiting the natural breakdown of the spilling oil. According to

John Kessler, a Texas A&M oceanographer, the Deepwater Horizon spill represents “the most vigorous methane eruption in modern human history.”

Meanwhile, if you read carefully, you’ll note that those relief wells are no sure thing. They might not do the job until the fall or even, worst-case scenario, Christmas

, or (even-worse-case scenario) they might fail entirely

, leaving the well to spew oil and natural gas (with its methane) for an estimated

two to four more years. And let’s not forget general bad weather

, as well as hurricane season bearing down on the Gulf, the possibility that the well’s casing

might be cracking or eroding — meaning even more spillage or seepage — and that a “clean-up” in which, in Interior Secretary Ken Salazar’s words, the Gulf ecosystem would be “restored and made whole,” may not, as Naomi Klein wrote recently

, be “remotely possible, at least not in a time frame we can easily wrap our heads around.”

Worse yet, the disaster in the Gulf is largely being dealt with as a one-shot nightmare. It isn’t. Consider our potential American Chernobyl

as just a precursor to a future filled with “unexpected” energy mega-disasters, as Michael Klare, TomDispatch regular

and author of the invaluable Rising Powers, Shrinking Planet

, suggests. (To catch him discussing our dystopian energy future on the latest TomCast audio interview, click here

BP-Style Extreme Energy Nightmares to Come
Four Scenarios for the Next Energy Mega-Disaster
By Michael T. Klare

On June 15th, in their testimony

before the House Energy and Commerce Committee, the chief executives of America’s leading oil companies argued that BP’s Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico was an aberration — something that would not have occurred with proper corporate oversight and will not happen again once proper safeguards are put in place. This is fallacious, if not an outright lie. The Deep Horizon explosion was the inevitable result of a relentless effort to extract oil from ever deeper and more hazardous locations. In fact, as long as the industry continues its relentless, reckless pursuit of “extreme energy”

— oil, natural gas, coal, and uranium obtained from geologically, environmentally, and politically unsafe areas — more such calamities are destined to occur.

Fighting talk: The new propaganda
By Robert Fisk

Following the latest in semantics on the news? Journalism and the Israeli government are in love again. It’s Islamic terror, Turkish terror, Hamas terror, Islamic Jihad terror, Hezbollah terror, activist terror, war on terror, Palestinian terror, Muslim terror, Iranian terror, Syrian terror, anti-Semitic terror…

But I am doing the Israelis an injustice. Their lexicon, and that of the White House most of the time and our reporters’ lexicon, is the same. Yes, let’s be fair to the Israelis. Their lexicon goes like this: Terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror.

How many times did I just use the word “terror”? Twenty. But it might as well be 60, or 100, or 1,000, or a million. We are in love with the word, seduced by it, fixated by it, attacked by it, assaulted by it, raped by it, committed to it. It is love and sadism and death in one double syllable, the prime time-theme song, the opening of every television symphony, the headline of every page, a punctuation mark in our journalism, a semicolon, a comma, our most powerful full stop. “Terror, terror, terror, terror”. Each repetition justifies its predecessor.

Most of all, it’s about the terror of power and the power of terror. Power and terror have become interchangeable. We journalists have let this happen. Our language has become not just a debased ally, but a full verbal partner in the language of governments and armies and generals and weapons. Remember the “bunker buster” and the “Scud buster” and the “target-rich environment” in the Gulf War (Part One)? Forget about “weapons of mass destruction”. Too obviously silly. But “WMD” in the Gulf War (Part Two) had a power of its own, a secret code genetic, perhaps, like DNA for something that would reap terror, terror, terror, terror, terror. “45 Minutes to Terror”.

Power and the media are not just about cosy relationships between journalists and political leaders, between editors and presidents. They are not just about the parasitic-osmotic relationship between supposedly honourable reporters and the nexus of power that runs between White House and State Department and Pentagon, between Downing Street and the Foreign Office and the Ministry of Defence, between America and Israel.

In the Western context, power and the media is about words and the use of words. It is about semantics. It is about the employment of phrases and their origins. And it is about the misuse of history, and about our ignorance of history. More and more today, we journalists have become prisoners of the language of power. Is this because we no longer care about linguistics or semantics? Is this because laptops “correct” our spelling, “trim” our grammar so that our sentences so often turn out to be identical to those of our rulers? Is this why newspaper editorials today often sound like political speeches?

For two decades now, the US and British and Israeli and Palestinian leaderships have used the words “peace process” to define the hopeless, inadequate, dishonourable agreement that allowed the US and Israel to dominate whatever slivers of land would be given to an occupied people. I first queried this expression, and its provenance, at the time of Oslo although how easily we forget that the secret surrenders at Oslo were themselves a conspiracy without any legal basis.

Poor old Oslo, I always think. What did Oslo ever do to deserve this? It was the White House agreement that sealed this preposterous and dubious treaty in which refugees, borders, Israeli colonies, even timetables were to be delayed until they could no longer be negotiated.

And how easily we forget the White House lawn though, yes, we remember the images upon which it was Clinton who quoted from the Koran, and Arafat who chose to say: “Thank you, thank you, thank you, Mr President.” And what did we call this nonsense afterwards? Yes, it was “a moment of history”! Was it? Was it so?

Do you remember what Arafat called it? “The peace of the brave”. But I don’t remember any of us pointing out that “the peace of the brave” was used by General de Gaulle about the end of the Algerian war. The French lost the war in Algeria. We did not spot this extraordinary irony.

Same again today. We Western journalists used yet again by our masters have been reporting our jolly generals in Afghanistan, as saying their war can only be won with a “hearts and minds” campaign. No one asked them the obvious question: Wasn’t this the very same phrase used about Vietnamese civilians in the Vietnam War? And didn’t we didn’t the West lose the war in Vietnam? Yet now we Western journalists are using about Afghanistan the phrase “hearts and minds” in our reports as if it is a new dictionary definition, rather than a symbol of defeat for the second time in four decades.

Just look at the individual words we have recently co-opted from the US military. When we Westerners find that “our” enemies al-Qa’ida, for example, or the Taliban have set off more bombs and staged more attacks than usual, we call it “a spike in violence”.

Ah yes, a “spike”! A “spike” is a word first used in this context, according to my files, by a brigadier general in the Baghdad Green Zone in 2004. Yet now we use that phrase, we extemporise on it, we relay it on the air as our phrase, our journalistic invention. We are using, quite literally, an expression created for us by the Pentagon. A spike, of course, goes sharply up then sharply downwards. A “spike in violence” therefore avoids the ominous use of the words “increase in violence” for an increase, of course, might not go down again afterwards.

Now again, when US generals refer to a sudden increase in their forces for an assault on Fallujah or central Baghdad or Kandahar a mass movement of soldiers brought into Muslim countries by the tens of thousands they call this a “surge”. And a surge, like a tsunami, or any other natural phenomena, can be devastating in its effects. What these “surges” really are to use the real words of serious journalism are reinforcements. And reinforcements are sent to conflicts when armies are losing those wars. But our television and newspaper boys and girls are still talking about “surges” without any attribution at all. The Pentagon wins again.

Meanwhile the “peace process” collapsed. Therefore our leaders or “key players” as we like to call them tried to make it work again. The process had to be put “back on track”. It was a train, you see. The carriages had come off the line. The Clinton administration first used this phrase, then the Israelis, then the BBC. But there was a problem when the “peace process” had repeatedly been put “back on track” but still came off the line. So we produced a “road map” run by a Quartet and led by our old Friend of God, Tony Blair, who in an obscenity of history we now refer to as a “peace envoy”. But the “road map” isn’t working. And now, I notice, the old “peace process” is back in our newspapers and on our television screens. And earlier this month, on CNN, one of those boring old fogies whom the TV boys and girls call “experts” told us again that the “peace process” was being put “back on track” because of the opening of “indirect talks” between Israelis and Palestinians. This isn’t just about clichés this is preposterous journalism. There is no battle between the media and power; through language, we, the media, have become them.

Here’s another piece of media cowardice that makes my 63-year-old teeth grind together after 34 years of eating humus and tahina in the Middle East. We are told, in many analysis features, that what we have to deal with in the Middle East are “competing narratives”. How very cosy. There’s no justice, no injustice, just a couple of people who tell different history stories. “Competing narratives” now regularly pop up in the British press.

The phrase, from the false language of anthropology, deletes the possibility that one group of people in the Middle East, for example is occupied, while another is doing the occupying. Again, no justice, no injustice, no oppression or oppressing, just some friendly “competing narratives”, a football match, if you like, a level playing field because the two sides are are they not? “in competition”. And two sides have to be given equal time in every story.

So an “occupation” becomes a “dispute”. Thus a “wall” becomes a “fence” or “security barrier”. Thus Israeli acts of colonisation of Arab land, contrary to all international law, become “settlements” or “outposts” or “Jewish neighbourhoods”. It was Colin Powell, in his starring, powerless appearance as Secretary of State to George W Bush, who told US diplomats to refer to occupied Palestinian land as “disputed land” and that was good enough for most of the US media. There are no “competing narratives”, of course, between the US military and the Taliban. When there are, you’ll know the West has lost.

But I’ll give you an example of how “competing narratives” come undone. In April, I gave a lecture in Toronto to mark the 95th anniversary of the 1915 Armenian genocide, the deliberate mass murder of 1.5 million Armenian Christians by the Ottoman Turkish army and militia. Before my talk, I was interviewed on Canadian Television, CTV, which also owns Toronto’s Globe and Mail newspaper. And from the start, I could see that the interviewer had a problem. Canada has a large Armenian community. But Toronto also has a large Turkish community. And the Turks, as the Globe and Mail always tell us, “hotly dispute” that this was a genocide.

So the interviewer called the genocide “deadly massacres”. Of course, I spotted her specific problem straight away. She couldn’t call the massacres a “genocide”, because the Turkish community would be outraged. But she sensed that “massacres” on its own especially with the gruesome studio background photographs of dead Armenians was not quite up to defining a million and a half murdered human beings. Hence the “deadly massacres”. How odd! If there are “deadly” massacres, are there some massacres which are not “deadly”, from which the victims walk away alive? It was a ludicrous tautology.

Yet the use of the language of power of its beacon words and its beacon phrases goes on among us still. How many times have I heard Western reporters talking about “foreign fighters” in Afghanistan? They are referring, of course, to the various Arab groups supposedly helping the Taliban. We heard the same story from Iraq. Saudis, Jordanians, Palestinian, Chechen fighters, of course. The generals called them “foreign fighters”. Immediately, we Western reporters did the same. Calling them “foreign fighters” meant they were an invading force. But not once ever have I heard a mainstream Western television station refer to the fact that there are at least 150,000 “foreign fighters” in Afghanistan, and that all of them happen to be wearing American, British and other NATO uniforms. It is “we” who are the real “foreign fighters”.

Similarly, the pernicious phrase “Af-Pak” as racist as it is politically dishonest is now used by reporters, although it was originally a creation of the US State Department on the day Richard Holbrooke was appointed special US representative to Afghanistan and Pakistan. But the phrase avoids the use of the word “India” whose influence in Afghanistan and whose presence in Afghanistan, is a vital part of the story. Furthermore, “Af-Pak” by deleting India effectively deleted the whole Kashmir crisis from the conflict in south-east Asia. It thus deprived Pakistan of any say in US local policy on Kashmir after all, Holbrooke was made the “Af-Pak” envoy, specifically forbidden from discussing Kashmir. Thus the phrase “Af-Pak”, which completely avoids the tragedy of Kashmir too many “competing narratives”, perhaps? means that when we journalists use the same phrase, “Af-Pak”, which was surely created for us journalists, we are doing the State Department’s work.

Now let’s look at history. Our leaders love history. Most of all, they love the Second World War. In 2003, George W Bush thought he was Churchill. True, Bush had spent the Vietnam War protecting the skies of Texas from the Vietcong. But now, in 2003, he was standing up to the “appeasers” who did not want a war with Saddam who was, of course, “the Hitler of the Tigris”. The appeasers were the British who didn’t want to fight Nazi Germany in 1938. Blair, of course, also tried on Churchill’s waistcoat and jacket for size. No “appeaser” he. America was Britain’s oldest ally, he proclaimed and both Bush and Blair reminded journalists that the US had stood shoulder-to-shoulder with Britain in her hour of need in 1940.

But none of this was true. Britain’s oldest ally was not the United States. It was Portugal, a neutral fascist state during the Second World War, which flew its national flags at half-mast when Hitler died (even the Irish didn’t do that).

Nor did America fight alongside Britain in her hour of need in 1940, when Hitler threatened invasion and the Luftwaffe blitzed London. No, in 1940 America was enjoying a very profitable period of neutrality, and did not join Britain in the war until Japan attacked the US naval base at Pearl Harbour in December 1941. Similarly, back in 1956, Eden called Nasser the “Mussolini of the Nile”. A bad mistake. Nasser was loved by the Arabs, not hated as Mussolini was by the majority of Africans, especially the Arab Libyans. The Mussolini parallel was not challenged or questioned by the British press. And we all know what happened at Suez in 1956. When it comes to history, we journalists let the presidents and prime ministers take us for a ride.

Yet the most dangerous side of our new semantic war, our use of the words of power though it is not a war, since we have largely surrendered is that it isolates us from our viewers and readers. They are not stupid. They understand words in many cases I fear better than we do. History, too. They know that we are drawing our vocabulary from the language of generals and presidents, from the so-called elites, from the arrogance of the Brookings Institute experts, or those of those of the Rand Corporation. Thus we have become part of this language.

Over the past two weeks, as foreigners humanitarians or “activist terrorists” tried to take food and medicines by sea to the hungry Palestinians of Gaza, we journalists should have been reminding our viewers and listeners of a long-ago day when America and Britain went to the aid of a surrounded people, bringing food and fuel our own servicemen dying as they did so to help a starving population. That population had been surrounded by a fence erected by a brutal army which wished to starve the people into submission. The army was Russian. The city was Berlin. The wall was to come later. The people had been our enemies only three years earlier. Yet we flew the Berlin airlift to save them. Now look at Gaza today: which Western journalist since we love historical parallels has even mentioned 1948 Berlin in the context of Gaza?

Instead, what did we get? “Activists” who turned into “armed activists” the moment they opposed the Israeli army’s boarding parties. How dare these men upset the lexicon? Their punishment was obvious. They became “terrorists”. And the Israeli raids in which “activists” were killed (another proof of their “terrorism”) then became “deadly” raids. In this case, “deadly” was more excusable than it had been on CTV nine dead men of Turkish origin being slightly fewer than a million and a half murdered Armenians in 1915. But it was interesting that the Israelis who for their own political reasons had hitherto shamefully gone along with the Turkish denial now suddenly wanted to inform the world of the 1915 Armenian genocide. This provoked an understandable frisson among many of our colleagues. Journalists who have regularly ducked all mention of the 20th century’s first Holocaust unless they could also refer to the way in which the Turks “hotly dispute” the genocide label (ergo the Toronto Globe and Mail) could suddenly refer to it. Israel’s new-found historical interest made the subject legitimate, though almost all reports managed to avoid any explanation of what actually happened in 1915.

And what did the Israeli seaborne raid become? It became a “botched” raid. Botched is a lovely word. It began as a German-origin Middle English word, “bocchen”, which meant to “repair badly”. And we more or less kept to that definition until our journalistic lexicon advisors changed its meaning. Schoolchildren “botch” an exam. We could “botch” a piece of sewing, an attempt to repair a piece of material. We could even botch an attempt to persuade our boss to give us a raise. But now we “botch” a military operation. It wasn’t a disaster. It wasn’t a catastrophe. It just killed some Turks.

So, given the bad publicity, the Israelis just “botched” the raid. Weirdly, the last time reporters and governments utilised this particular word followed Israel’s attempt to kill the Hamas leader, Khaled Meshaal, in the streets of Amman. In this case, Israel’s professional assassins were caught after trying to poison Meshaal, and King Hussain forced the then Israeli prime minister (a certain B Netanyahu) to provide the antidote (and to let a lot of Hamas “terrorists” out of jail). Meshaal’s life was saved.

But for Israel and its obedient Western journalists this became a “botched attempt” on Meshaal’s life. Not because he wasn’t meant to die, but because Israel failed to kill him. You can thus “botch” an operation by killing Turks or you can “botch” an operation by not killing a Palestinian.

How do we break with the language of power? It is certainly killing us. That, I suspect, is one reason why readers have turned away from the “mainstream” press to the internet. Not because the net is free, but because readers know they have been lied to and conned; they know that what they watch and what they read in newspapers is an extension of what they hear from the Pentagon or the Israeli government, that our words have become synonymous with the language of a government-approved, careful middle ground, which obscures the truth as surely as it makes us political and military allies of all major Western governments.

Many of my colleagues on various Western newspapers would ultimately risk their jobs if they were constantly to challenge the false reality of news journalism, the nexus of media-government power. How many news organisations thought to run footage, at the time of the Gaza disaster, of the airlift to break the blockade of Berlin? Did the BBC?

The hell they did! We prefer “competing narratives”. Politicians didn’t want I told the Doha meeting on 11 May the Gaza voyage to reach its destination, “be its end successful, farcical or tragic”. We believe in the “peace process”, the “road map”. Keep the “fence” around the Palestinians. Let the “key players” sort it out. And remember what this is all about: “Terror, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror.”

Bradley Manning arrested for leaking murder video

June 23, 2010

“From what I’ve heard so far of (Wikileaks co-founder Julian) Assange and (Army Pfc Bradley) Manning,… they are two new heroes of mine.” -Daniel Ellsberg, famous whistle-blower of the Pentagon Papers

In April, Wikileaks.org

released a notorious video depicting a U.S. helicopter attack resulting in the killing of 11 unarmed Iraqi civilians, including two Reuters employees. The video, titled “Collateral Murder” was widely posted and reported on. Last week, the U.S. military arrested 22-year-old Pfc Bradley Manning, an Army intelligence analyst who allegedly took credit for leaking the video. Lawyers for Wikileaks have not yet been allowed access to Bradley, who is currently being held in pretrial confinement in Kuwait. Courage to Resist’s primary concern is that Bradley has access to civilian legal representation to fight what are expected to be very serious charges at court martial. We expect to collaborate with many concerned organizations and individuals in order to best support Bradley legally and politically.

Message from released objector Nicole Mitchell

June 20, 2010

I just wanted to give a big thank you for posting an outreach for support in regard to my recent incarceration after being AWOL. I was let out just this past Saturday, June 12th and now I am in the process of separating from the Army at last! I received quite a few letters of support from people across all spans of the US. Those letters truly helped me to stay positive not just about my reasons for being confined, but about being able to remain stable outside of the military. It is good to be reminded that there is such a strong community out there that won’t look at the terms of my discharge like the military claims. (Check out Nicole’s Myspace music page

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:

REASONS WHY OUR HAWAIIAN MONARCHY
GOVERNMENT EXISTS

Review by Amelia Gora, a Royal person (2010)

There are problematic issues caused by the U.S. belligerent occupation in the Hawaiian Islands in the world today, which leads to ongoing issues affecting 191 nations in the world today.

A friendly, neutral nation headed by our Queen recognized as part of the Pacific Empire with Aetearoa, and the Samoan Islands, and locked into permanent treaties, conventions, agreements with other nations, by the Law of Nations was criminally usurped by a belligerent, hostile, bankrupt nation called the U.S. (supported by England and the bankers) whose military acted on behalf of the U.S. President Benjamin Harrison, Congress, et.als.orders.

They criminally moved to assume the private properties of our Royal families, assumed the assets, lands, resources, identities with the help of pirates, racketeers, bankers, sugar planters, American businessmen, treasonous persons working in the Hawaiian government positions, etc.

In a concerted effort by 2,000+ Americans and supporters who were paid $50-$500 each, hundreds of Masons/Freemasons who arrived to celebrate a building two weeks prior and calling Honolulu their “home city”, the following is part of a trail of evidence discovered in research,

*Masons/Freemasons were set in place to break down Monarchy governments worldwide.

1893 Constitution

Queen Liliuokalani destroyed the Constitution changing
– Hide quoted text –

the government or the Constitutional government back to a Monarchy.

This negated the Bayonet Constitution and her own Constitution that she wanted to update.

Queen Liliuokalani utilized her Sovereign right, her Royal decree, similar to the executive order used by the U.S. Presidents.

The difference being that a Royal person can legally do as they wish, and are not subject to the laws. The U.S. Presidents use of an executive order is by “tradition” started by George Washington, and is NOT law or legal. A tradition is not law.

(Note to Americans: This is one of the flaws, areas where the PEOPLE can make changes in government when the PEOPLE move to take back their government.)

Genealogy Based Leadership

Because Monarchy governments are based on genealogies, these are the reasons why our Queen could apply her Royal authority(ies):

(1) her mother Keohokalole (female) was a hanai/adopted daughter of a Kamehameha descendant.

This is How:

Kamehameha (male) – he started the Monarchy government in 1810.
/
Kaoleioku (male)
/
Hanuna (male)
/
Kapule (male) married Kini (female) (pio/close marriage)
/
Nahuina (female)
/
hanai: Keohokalole (female)
/
Kaeha/Kamakaeha/Namakaeha/Liliuokalani/Queen Liliuokalani

2) Queen Liliuokalani attended the Royal School – with the intent that
specific children would be leaders, etc.

3) Queen Liliuokalani was a hanai/adopted child of a Kamehameha
descendant. This is how:

Kamehameha (male) – he started the Monarchy government in 1810.
/
Kaoleioku (male)
/
Konia (female) married Abner Paki (male)
/
hanai: Kaeha/Kamakaeha/Namakaeha/Liliuokalani/Queen Liliuokalani

History Reviewed

Queen Liliuokalani utilized her Sovereign status to change the laws at her leisure. The premeditation by the U.S. government, military, and American businessmen to dethrone her to some degree was foiled.

Our Queen Liliuokalani basically locked up the Hawaiian Kingdom as a
Monarchy government, purposefully with the intent to maintain Sovereign
rights for our people as well which also limited the rights of the foreigners (including those who conspired, did treasonous acts against her, her subjects, others loyal to the Hawaiian Kingdom).

Amidst the drastic changes, the standing orders of the U.S. Congress, government to dethrone her, and the U.S. military’s aggressive move against a neutral, non-violent, friendly nation, the following are the event that occurred:

1893 – January 9. U.S. Congress gave orders to assume Pearl Harbor and “to not mention the troops” in the NEW YORK TIMES newspaper article. (In the past, messages were passed through the news media.)

1893 – January 15. American Minister Stevens and men left the steamship -of-war BOSTON “to protect American lives and property,” with their “three companies of bluejackets, one of artillery, one of marines, 154 mean and 10 officers; with 14,000 cartridges for rifles and the Gatling gun, 1,300 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 – representing 88,000 of the population, but at the request of a committee of rebels representing 2,000 American residents.”

“One company was left at the legation where the “American life and property” were to be found, while the rest of the force was marched to
Arlon Hall, a structure close to the palace and just across the street from the Government Building, where, of course, the rebels would necessarily make their attack.”

1893. January 16. The Rear Admiral reported that “Arlon Hall was ill=chosen for the professed purpose for which the troops were landed. “Naturally,” he adds, “if they were landed with a view to supporting the Provisional Government troops than occupying the Government Building, it was a wise choice.”

1893 – January 17. The American “conspirators signed their proclamation announcing that the Hawaiian monarchy had been “abrogated” and a Provisional Government established, with Sanford B. Dole as Chairman of the Executive Council.”

“They took this to the Government Building and there read it, within seenty-five yards of the point where the United States forces were stationed with their Gatling gun and small cannon.”

“With only the Government Building in their hands, the Queen being at the palace and her troops in possession of the police station, and but for the overawing force of United States troops in possession also of the city, the rebels posted off to the American Legation with a request for recognition. They got it with extraordinary promptness. The Provisional Government was proclaimed between 2 and 3 o’clock. Two hours later the new Government had received the following document, which, to our shame, will live in history:

United States Legation.
Honolulu, Hawaiian Islands, Jan. 17, 1893.

A Provisional Government having been duly constituted in place of the recent Government of Queen Liliuokalani, and said Provisional Government being in full possession of the Government buildings, the archives, and the Treasury, and in control of the capital of the Hawaiian Islands. I hereby recognize said Provisional Government as the de facto Government of the Hawaiian Islands.

JOHN L. STEVENS
Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary of the United States.

Noted by author of the NEW YORK TIMES article, “The Story of a Crime”:

“The Dole conspirators were not “in full possession of the Government buildings.” but of only one of them, which was occupied only by clerks and porters at the time of their raid…………..it was still too early to apply the word “recent” to the Government of the Queen, for the rebels did not wait on the Queen with their treasonable proclamation until after Minister Stevens had recognized their Government.”

“The Queen yielded, of course,. She could do nothing else against a rebellion that was so manifestly backed up by the superior armed forces and by the Minister of the United States. She signed, under protest, a paper renouncing her rights.”

Queen Liliuokalani in 1895 was forced to sign an abdication by conspirators, treasonous persons, pirates, Sanford B. Dole, et. als.

Summary

Queen Liliuokalani returned the government to a Monarchy government when she destroyed the Constitution affecting King Kalakaua’s Bayonet Constitution which was signed at gun point, and a Constitution that she had put together which did not appeal to the Americans in the Hawaiian Islands.

Queen Liliuokalani utilized her Sovereign authority based on the following:

1. Hanai/adopted relationship to the Kamehameha line, a leader who formed the monarchy government.
2. Attending the Royal School – a School for Hawaiian leaders – based on genealogies for a monarchy government.
3. Hanai/adopted daughter of a Kamehameha descendant, part of a monarchy government.

and another reason taken as an excerpt from above:

The American “conspirators signed their proclamation announcing that the Hawaiian monarchy had been “abrogated” and a Provisional Government established, with Sanford B. Dole as Chairman of the Executive Council.”

4. The American’s at the time of the wrongful dethronement did proclaim and announce that the Hawaiian monarchy was “abrogated”.

In other words, the recognition of a monarchy form of government, not a Constitutional monarchy

aloha.

**************************************
A CONSTITUTIONAL MONARCHY “IN REM” CLAIMS SOME:
The following was posted by Tane on Maoliworld.com This is his take:

It’s simpler to refer to the Constitution of 1864 which is still basically in effect. The reason being that the 1887 was never ratified but implied; Legislation was out of session at the time; the Queen attempted to restore it; it was still a Constitutional Monarchy whereas the Bayonet Constitution of 1887 was done under duress which makes it null and void; 1887 stripped her powers which means her veto power was nil.

She proposed the new constitution to restore the rights of the citizens and redeem the powers of the monarch enjoyed by Lot. Her muhe’e cabinet had double-crossed her once she intended to promugate the illicit constitution and told her to hold off. When the people gathered, she told them to be patient as she could not promulgate the Bayonet constitution and introduce the new one which she felt had to have the approval and support of her cabinet to go through the proper protocols as was done in 1864.

As far as the Kawananakoas, they are collateral relations to Queen Kapiolani who was not head of state. Queen Regnant Lili’uokalani had the Crown Princess Kaiulani confirmed by the legislature as as successor dictated by the constitutions. Under the Constitutions, the criteria was established on succession and eligibility of successors. Today there would be an election as the two previous Kings were elected to the throne.

There is a catch-22 we are faced with today. The marriages had to be approved by the Monarch; if not, the eligible would be cut from the line of succession as if he/she were dead. One could not be an idiot; and it was important for the candidate to be above reproach and groomed as well as educated through the proper process of schooling befit for a monarch.

Kauikeaouli had set up the pool of eligibles. None had direct descendants except for Abigail Maheha whose decendants are still living. Nonetheless, the pool would then be open to ALL colaterals of high birth; Hawaiian system relied on who is the mother and who is the father which determined the rank of the offspring.

On top of that, illegitimate/bastard children under the Christian guidelines that influenced the “legitimacy” of successors as written in the constitutions, would be cut from the line as if dead and become ineligible.

So, do we set a precedent?

********************************************
– Show quoted text –

To answer your initial question, we can refer to the treaties ratified by over 20-25 countries including the U.S.A. which establishes within their Constitution that ratified treaties are the Supreme law of the land. The U.S. have admitted to their complicity by invading and conspiring to unlawfully takeover the Kingdom of Hawai’i.

Under International law, such admittance deems the invasion, a belligerent occupation with a civilian arm to govern. The U.S. continues to violate the laws of occupation and the laws of neutrality. International law experts have declared that the Kingdom still exists.

The Queen’s formal protest, the memorial along with the Ku’e Petitions of 1897 led to the treaty of annexation to be rejected by the U.S. Congress. Within the Turpie Resolution of 1894, it allowed the people to determine and maintain their own governance and political policy, hence the petitions that was given to U.S. Congress in 1897.

The U.S. joint resolution, considered not binding but a declaration, is null and void in a foreign country since it is outside of their jurisdiction and any other subsequent action within that foreign country has no standing according to international law and the laws within the U.S.A.’s constitution.

While the U.S. government considered Hawaii as a U.S. territory, the world including U.S. Americans recognized us as a foreign country and under NGO status. I knew I was a Hawaii national/citizen since I was about 8 years old.

The Constitutional Monarchy of the Kingdom of Hawai’i still exists but in rem.

**************************************************************
Third Point…………

There are problematic cases affecting our Royal families:

* Estate of Kekauluohi (1876) – Flaws in genealogy(ies)/heirs, etc.
Reference: Volume 6 Hawaii Reports

* Thurston vs. Bishop (1888) Opinions of the Court on land, konohiki laws, etc.
Reference: Volume 7 Hawaii Reports

* Bishop vs. Gulick (1889) Bishop Estates trustees become heirs.
Reference: Volume 7 Hawaii Reports

* Estate of Brenig (1889) Samuel Maikai claimed heir and Estate of Bernice Pauahi
Bishop case used as precedence.
Ref: Volume 7 Hawaii Reports

* Hawaiian Government vs. Cartwright (1890) Government lien on private lands of Kamehameha IV, etc.

Reference: Volume 8 Hawaii Reports

* In Re Sheldon (1893) Discussion of changeover from provisional government to Republic because provisional governments last only 2 years

Reference: Volume 9 Hawaii Reports

* Rooke v. Queen’s Hospital (1899) Note: TCB Rooke’s heir C Rooke, a nephew and his heirs forever

Reference: Volume 12 Hawaii Reports

* In the Matter of….Pa Pelekane (1912) Note: Territory as successor the Hawaiian Kingdom

Reference: Volume 21 Hawaii Reports

*also see the Corporation Documents for the Queen’s Hospital which documents Kamehameha IV as the perpetual trustee allowing free health care to our kanaka maoli, sailors, and others. Note: This is the reason(s) why a change was made eliminating sailors and others – issued a null and void order previously as a descendant of Peke Davis, whose mother was Grace Kamaikui and both were the hanai/adopted children of Kauikeaouli/Kamehameha III.

Reference: Archives, Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii

*also note that the Bonds of the Hawaiian Kingdom is criminally utilized currently by the entity State of Hawaii to pay for the Judges salaries, homes for many including foreigners discovered by some of the Sovereignty groups.

Additionally, kanaka maoli/aboriginal Hawaiians/Hawaiian nationals prisoners are released from prisons/jail if they sign an interest over to the entity State of Hawaii in exchange for their release.

Reference: Credible sources.

Fourth Point……….

Is it true that the Hawaiian Kingdom government lies in the Royal Order of Kamehameha?

I leave you with these questions:

Why did the military approach the Royal Order of Kamehameha for approval to use depleted uranium/DU?……………and did you know they accommodated and approved?

Why did Daniel Inouye/Senator Daniel Inouye, one armed bandit, invite all of the Royal Societies….the Royal Order of Kamehameha, the Kaahumanu Society, the Sons and Daughter of Hawaii (a Missionary society), etc. to a meeting and asked for their approval in claiming all of downtown Honolulu, Nuuanu, etc. as a Memorial?…..and did you know they accommodated and approved?

Well, this article documents oppositions to the U.S. Military, Daniel Inouye/Senator Daniel Inouye moves to gain approval from the Royal Societies without the approval of the descendants and heirs of the lands.

Lastly, the entity State of Hawaii, City and County of Honolulu, Inouye, et. als. are not related to our families, and perpetuate the frauds of those who conspired against our families, our people, and wrongfully/criminally assumed a neutral, non-violent, friendly nation.

I have a problem with news from a girlfriend who was given a call a few hours after “9/11” and said that her good friend was in a meeting in a nearby building………the telephone rang and her boss answered and said as they all looked out at the planes passing, “yeah, here they come now……….”

They watched in horror as the planes crashed into the buildings……….then the boss told them ‘leave the building!’

go to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=teZNcC5IJ8s&feature=player_embedded

911

The buildings were owned by the EXXON Corporation headed by the Rockefellers who are the permanent heads of the corporation interested in OIL in the Middle East.

The EXXON Corporation is formerly the Standard Oil Company and operates as an umbrella corporation over many such as the Electric Companies (using oil), Oil companies such as those with GWBush, Cheney, Candoleeza Rice all tied to oil companies, etc.

Then there’s the bankers under the umbrella corporation ……….of which Inouye who’s pushing the Akaka Bill, along with OBAMA affiliated with Bank of Hawaii ……giving out corporate welfare, perpetuating WARS and continuing his compadres works while working with his handlers…………

The Rockefellers are part of the group that purchased stocks in the Federal Reserve making monies off the backs of Americans………….and OBAMA and friends benefit off of the assets of the Corporations feasting off of ‘people of color’ in the Middle East, Hawaiian Islands/archipelago/Kingdom of Hawaii/Hawaiian Kingdom/He Mokupuni Pae Aina o Hawaii, etc. and disregard the respect for life, liberties, and the pursuit of happiness.

Contributions to the world is in the form on the United Nations which departed from the Law of Nations as documented by our Queen Liliuokalani…..with the United Nations, the move towards One World Order/New World Order continues with LIES being told about 911, Middle East’s TRUE History, Hawaii’s TRUE History, Liberia’s TRUE History (they are made up of transplanted American slaves as well as many other nations (Cuba, South America, etc…………).

Yep, much can be found out through an intense study of the TRUE History of America. And, much can be found out by studying each President, their backgrounds, their finances, their affiliations, etc………..the story of WARMONGERING through Corporation affiliations are at the roots of the ongoing evils.

Queen Liliuokalani did say that if the U.S. fails to make corrections, they will fall apart.

Everyone, including all nations can continue to watch.

aloha.

President Obama: Replace Rahm with Me …an open letter from Michael Moore

Friday, March 5th, 2010

Dear President Obama,

I understand you may be looking to replace Rahm Emanuel as your chief of staff.

I would like to humbly offer myself, yours truly, as his replacement.

I will come to D.C. and clean up the mess that’s been created around you. I will work for $1 a year. I will help the Dems on Capitol Hill find their spines and I will teach them how to nonviolently beat the Republicans to a pulp.

And I will help you get done what the American people sent you there to do. I don’t need much, just a cot in the White House basement will do.

Now, don’t get too giddy with excitement over my offer, because you and I are going to be up at 5 in the morning, 7 days a week and I am going to get you pumped up for battle every single day (see photo

). Each morning you and I will do 100 jumping jacks and you will repeat after me:

“THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ELECTED ME, NOT THE REPUBLICANS, TO RUN THE COUNTRY! I AM IN CHARGE! I WILL ORDER ALL OBSTRUCTIONISTS OUTTA MY WAY! IF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DON’T LIKE WHAT I’M DOING THEY CAN THROW MY ASS OUT IN 2012. IN THE MEANTIME, I CALL THE SHOTS ON THEIR BEHALF! NOW, CONGRESS, DROP AND GIVE ME 50!!”

Then we will put on our jogging sweats and run up to Capitol Hill. We will take names, kick butts, and then take some more names. If we have to give a few noogies or half-nelson’s, then so be it. In our pockets we will have a piece of paper to show the pansy Dems just how much they won by in 2008 — and the poll results that show the majority of Americans oppose the Afghanistan and Iraq wars and want the bankers punished. Like drill sergeants, we will get right up in their faces and ask them, “WHAT PART OF THE PUBLIC MANDATE DON’T YOU UNDERSTAND, SOLDIER?!! DROP AND GIVE ME 50!”

I know this is the job Rahm Emanuel was supposed to be doing.

Now, don’t get me wrong. I have always admired Rahm Emanuel (if you don’t count his getting NAFTA pushed through Congress in the ’90s which destroyed towns like Flint, Michigan. I know, picky-picky.). He is what we needed for a long time — a no-apologies, take-no-prisoners fighting machine. Someone who is not afraid to get his hands dirty and pound the right wing into submission. Far from being the foul-mouthed bully he has been portrayed as, Rahm is the one who BEAT UP the bullies to protect us from them.

That’s certainly what he did in 2006. After six long, miserable years of the middle-class getting slaughtered and the poor being flushed down the toilet, Rahm Emanuel took on the job of returning Congress to the Democrats. No one believed it could be done.

But he did it. Big time. He put the fear of God into the party of Rush and Newt. They had never been so scared. More importantly, though, he instilled a sense of hope in the Democrats that they could actually score the mother of all hat tricks in 2008 — and with you, an African American no less, in the pole position!

It worked. The Darkness ended. The vast majority of nation wept with joy on the night of the election (those who weren’t weeping went out and bought a record number of guns and ammo). Unlike the last president, you didn’t “win” by 537 votes in Florida (although Gore won the popular vote by a half-million), you beat McCain nationally by 9,522,083 votes! The House Democrats got a walloping 79-vote margin. The Senate Dems would caucus with a supermajority of 60 votes unheard of in over 30 years. The wars would now end. America would have universal health care. Wall Street and the banks would, at the very least, be reined in. Hardworking citizens would not be thrown out of their homes. It was supposed to be the dawning of a new age.

But the Republicans were not going to go quietly into the night. You see, instead of having just one Rahm Emanuel, they are ALL Rahm Emanuels. That’s why they usually win. Unlike most Democrats, they are relentless and unstoppable. When they believe in something (which is usually themselves and the K Street job they hope to be rewarded with someday), they’ll fight for it till the death. They are loyal to a fault to each other (they were never able to denounce Bush, even though they knew he was destroying the party). They dig their heels in deep no matter what. If you exiled them to a lone chunk of melting polar ice cap, they would keep insisting that it was just a normal “January thaw,” even as the frigid Arctic waters rose above their God-fearing necks (“See what I mean — this water is COLD! What ‘global *warming*’?! Adam and Eve rode dinos…aagghh!!… gulp gulp gulp”).

We thought we were all done with this craziness, but we were mistaken. Like a beast that you just can’t cage, the Republicans convinced not only the media, but YOU and your fellow Dems, that 59 votes was a *minority*! Precious time was lost trying to reach a “consensus” and trying to be “bipartisan.”

Well, you and the Democrats have been in charge now for over a year and not one banking regulation has been reinstated. We don’t have universal health care. The war in Afghanistan has escalated. And tens of thousands of Americans continue to lose their jobs and be thrown out of their homes. For most of us, it’s just simply no longer good enough that Bush is gone. Woo hoo. Bush is gone. Yippee. That hasn’t created one new friggin’ job.

You’re such a good guy, Mr. President. You came to Washington with your hand extended to the Republicans and they just chopped it off. You wanted to be respectful and they decided that they were going to say “no” to everything you suggested. Yet, you kept on saying you still believed in bipartisanship.

Well, if you really want bipartisanship, just go ahead and let the Republicans win in November. Then you’ll get all the bipartisanship you want.

Let me be clear about one thing: The Democrats on Election Day 2010 are going to get an ass-whoopin’ of biblical proportions if things don’t change right now. And after the new Republican majority takes over, they, along with a few conservative Democrats in Congress, will get to bipartisanly impeach you for being a socialist and a citizen of Kenya. How nice to see both sides of the aisle working together again!

And the brief window we had to fix this country will be gone.

Gone.

Gone, baby, gone.

I don’t know what your team has been up to, but they haven’t served you well. And Rahm, poor Rahm, has turned into a fighter — not of Republicans, but of the left. He called those of us who want universal health care “f***ing retarded.” Look, I don’t know if Rahm is the problem or if it’s Gibbs or Axelrod or any of the other great people we owe a debt of thanks to for getting you elected. All I know is that whatever is fueling your White House it’s now running on fumes. Time to shake things up! Time to bring me in to get you pumped up every morning! Go Barack! Yay Obama! Fight, Team, Fight!

I’m packed and ready to come to D.C. tomorrow. If it helps, you won’t really be losing Rahm entirely because I’ll be bringing his brother with me — my agent, Ari Emanuel. Man, you should see HIM negotiate a deal! Have you ever wanted to see Mitch McConnell walking around Capitol Hill carrying his own head in his hands after it’s just been handed to him by the infamous Ari? Oh, baby, it won’t be pretty — but boy will it be sweet!

What say you, Barack? Me and you against the world! Yes we can! It’ll be fun — and we may just get something done. Whaddaya got to lose? Hope?

Retardedly yours,
Michael Moore
MMFlint@aol.com
MichaelMoore.com

P.S. Just to give you an idea of the new style I’ll be bringing with me, when a cornhole like Sen. Ben Nelson tries to hold you up next time, this is what I will tell him in order to get his vote: “You’ve got exactly 30 seconds to rescind your demand or I will personally make sure that Nebraska doesn’t get one more federal dollar for the rest of Obama’s term. And then I will let everyone in your state know that you wear Sooner panties

, backwards. NOW DROP AND GIVE ME 50!”

REPRINT PERMISSION GRANTED

It makes strategic sense, specially for Muslims, to push for a legal definition of terrorism — the importance of this issue should not be minimized.

How Does Dr. Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri’s
Anti-terror Fatwa Define Terrorism?
by Enver Masud

Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri, founder of “Minhaj-ul-Quran International, has issued a 600-page fatwa that bans suicide bombing “without any excuses, any pretexts, or exceptions.”

Several years ago, we’ve raised a number of issues regarding suicide bombing, and other fatwas on terrorism.

The first question any fatwa on terrorism must address is how does one define terrorism?

In 2005, then UN secretary general, Kofi Annan, recognized this need, and called for a “universally accepted definition of terrorism, he endorsed the wording contained in the recent report from the UN High-level Panel on Threats, Challenges and Change, . . . The panel defined terrorism as any action intended to cause death or serious bodily harm to civilians or non-combatants with the purpose of intimidating a population or compelling a government or an international organisation to do, or abstain from, any act.
Five years later, there’s still no generally accepted definition of terrorism — presumably because it would include acts that major powers now commit with impunity.”

We would be satisfied with the simple definition in Webster’s New World Dictionary, Second College Edition, which defines terrorism as the “use of force or threats to demoralize, intimidate, and subjugate, esp. such use as a political weapon or policy”.

Given this definition of terrorism, together with the definition of “power politics” and “realpolitik”, leads to the conclusion that frequently realpolitik equals, power politics, equals terrorism.

We did not find a definition in Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri’s English language summary.

Neither “suicide” nor “terrorism” are mentioned in highly regarded, English language translations of the Quran by Abdullah Yusuf Ali (an Indian Muslim), Muhammad Asad (a Polish Jew who reverted to Islam), and Marmaduke Pickthall (a British Christian who reverted to Islam).

To paraphrase Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri — “without any excuses, any pretexts, or exceptions” — killing civilians is wrong.

However, like previous fatwas, this new “fatwa against terrorism” leaves relevant questions unanswered.

Tomgram: Robert Lipsyte, The Commercials Are the Super Bowl

It’s right and proper that the ad has its own high holy day which, as Robert Lipsyte points out, we call the Super Bowl. After all, the ad has so much to celebrate. It’s been the great colonizing force of our age. When I was younger, for a period, I subscribed to the trade magazineAdvertising Age, not because I had anything to do with the business, but because I was fascinated by the fact that, no matter how obscure the subject, the ad had an interest in (and a perspective on) it.

In a sense, in this century, the ad has inherited the restlessness once associated with the American pioneering spirit. The Marlboro Man, it turns out, was more than a logo. The ad can’t stay still. It’s always searching for, and moving into, new territory, and then trying to settle down, often initially alone and under attack. It is expansionist by nature, never taking no for an answer. By my childhood, the ad had already redefined most common space as consumer space. In my lifetime, the ad has broken almost every taboo, and into just about every previously sacred (or profane or private) space. It’s made it into the bedroom, first via the radio and then, far more strikingly, the TV set; into the school, the doctor’s office, and the airport; onto the sides of buses, into and onto taxis, into elevators, onto gas pumps, and above urinals, as well as into your pocket, thanks to the iPhone and the like. You name it, and the ad’s invaded its territory. One of the last largely ad-free bastions

in the culture, the book, is about to fall to next generation Kindles, iPads, and other “readers” which will, like the rest of the Internet, be ad-friendly.

Weirdly enough, the spread of the ad may not be due to its persuasiveness, but to its ineffectiveness. “Clutter,” the collectivity of all those ads in familiar space that you just tune out, is the motor that seems to drive the ad into virgin territory, which it invariably colonizes until all the other ads follow, driving it on again. The constant flight of the ad from (or around or above) the clutter could be the prime narrative of the last hundred years, as it has driven itself deeper and deeper into what one might someday hesitate to call “our” lives.

As for ads and sports? Don’t get me started. Fortunately, Robert Lipsyte, former New York Times sports columnist and TomDispatch Jock Culture Correspondent, is back from a long sabbatical writing a memoir (and doing a little TV

on the side) to cover the play-by-play, and offer some classic highlights from Sportsworld’s highest holy day. (To catch him in a superb audio interview with TomDispatch’s Timothy MacBain discussing why sports matter, click here

.) He’s been to the Super Bowl for TomDispatch before

, but never this way. So sit back and watch, just like I’m going to do. Tom

Colombia is one more stepping stone on the road to global domination. The American people can’t say we were not warned.

Fascists Were Driven Out of Occupied Lands; So Will US Imperialists. Contrition?

In Germany and Japan, the general feeling is now one of contrition for the atrocities committed during brutal occupations, not one of innocence as grandparents professed claiming themselves co-victims. When all the U.S. troops, ships and planes have exited all the places they didn’t belong, will Americans’ sense of innocence be replaced by similar pangs of conscience, and shame for the disappointing behavior of their parents?

Budgets, War and Blind Ambition: The Limited Minds of the American Elite

Our elites and their courtiers literally cannot imagine life without a permanent war for global dominance, fueled by a gargantuan war machine spread across hundreds and hundreds of bases implanted in more than 100 countries. And so, the concept, the mere possibility, of shrinking our Empire in order to shift the resources of war to improving our lives is never even considered by the elites controlling our leaders and our fate.

Israel is NOT and Never was a Democracy

“The terms “democracy’ or “democratic’ are totally absent from Israel’s Declaration of Independence. This is not an accident. The intention of Zionism was not to bring democracy. It was solely motivated by the creation in Eretz-Isrel of a Jewish state belonging to all the Jewish people and to the Jewish people alone. This is why any Jew of the Diaspora has the right to immigrate…”-Ariel Sharon

When that growth became impossible capitalism turned inward. It began feeding on itself. That’s when Wall Street turned Bear Sterns and Lehman Brothers and the other investment banks into casinos.

Obama Provokes War Against China and Iran

The possibility of yet another U.S. war became more real last week, when the Obama administration sharply confronted both China and Iran. The first aggressive act was performed by Obama’s Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, who “warned” China that it must support serious economic sanctions against Iran (an act of war).

One of the key challenges faced by the mission is not just getting there, but also how to apply the brakes against the Sun’s gravitational pull when you do… and that’s where QinetiQ’s solar-electric ion propulsion system comes in. The company has just announced a £23m contract with EADS Astrium for the supply of its system for the BepiColombo mission. Read More

Skinput turns your hand into a touchscreen and your fingers into a keypad

Always thought your skin was more than just a device to keep your insides tucked in neatly and out of harms’ way? Well, you were right. Chris Harrison has developed Skinput, a way in which your skin can become a touch screen device or your fingers buttons on a MP3 controller. Harrison says that as electronics get smaller and smaller they have become more adaptable to being worn on our bodies, but a couple of drawbacks are that the monitor and keypad/keyboard have to be big enough for us to operate the equipment. This can defeat the purpose of small devices but with the clever acoustics and impact sensing software, Harrison and his team can give your skin the same functionality as a keypad. Add a pico projector attached to an arm band, and your wrist becomes a touch screen. Read More

A car flashlight that’s always ready to go

This is especially likely if you live somewhere that gets cold winters, where just a few hours parked outside could send your car-flashlight’s batteries into hibernation. There’s a nifty new product, however, that addresses this problem. It called the Spotlight, and it’s a small yet heavy-duty flashlight that plugs straight into your car’s dashboard power socket, where it will stay charged constantly. Read More

If you’re looking to eat healthfully at your favorite restaurant, don’t automatically turn to the salad menu. Turns out, restaurant salads can often be as bad as—or worse than—any burger or steak on the menu. Sure, salads may contain a fresh produce base, but those leafy greens are too often weighed down with cheese, deep fried croutons, and high-calorie dressings. In fact, one salad from a popular chain restaurant contains over 1,500 calories! Surprised? Then check out this list of the Worst Salads in America, culled from the new book Eat This, Not That! 2010.

#6. Quizno’s Honey Mustard Chicken Regular Chopped Salad
920 calories
65 g fat (20 g saturated, 0.5 g trans)
1,685 mg sodium

The secret to this salad’s salacious calorie count is in the sauce. A general rule of thumb when you eat at Quizno’s: Serving sizes are often not what they seem. This “Regular Chopped Salad” accounts for nearly half your day’s caloric allotment. Even most of the small chopped salads pack over 500 calories. Unless you order the Pan Asian small, consider a salad at Quizno’s a meal unto itself, not a side dish.

Bonus tip: Want to make sure your lunch doesn’t destroy your diet? Familiarize yourself with this indispensable list of the 30 Unhealthiest Sandwiches in America. It’ll help you keep your waistline from ballooning.

Eat This Instead!
Pan Asian Small Chopped Salad
270 calories
11 g fat (2.5 g saturated, 0 g trans)
1,190 mg sodium

#5. Romano’s Macaroni Grill Parmesan-Crusted Chicken Salad
960 calories
16 g saturated fat
1,990 mg sodium
49 g carbohydrates

Here’s a little menu magic for you: Anytime you see the words “parmesan-crusted,” assume the dish has been slathered in cheese and given the frying treatment. Which is probably why this Parmesan-Crusted Chicken Salad has nearly a full day’s worth of sodium and half a day’s worth of calories. One of the biggest problems with Mac Grill’s menu items—though we love it in general—is the sodium content. We’d say order the Warm Spinach Salad, but it’s packed with as much salt as you’ll find in five large orders of McDonald’s french fries. Your only smart salad side dish selection at this chain is the Fresh Greens or Caesar.

Bonus tip: Order anything from the 20 Best Restaurant Foods in America and leave the restaurant feeling satisfied with your healthy and delicious dish. Or lose your belly fat fast by making all your favorites yourself with the new book Cook This, Not That! Kitchen Survival Guide.

Eat This Instead!
Fresh Greens
320 calories
5 g saturated fat
300 mg sodium
20 g carbohydrates

#4. Chili’s Quesadilla Explosion Salad
1,400 calories
88 g fat (26 g saturated)
2,370 mg sodium

This salad is explosive all right. Here’s a tip: At most Mexican restaurants, the salads are actually the absolute worst items on the menu. For example, with burritos and tacos, the amount of high-fat, high-calorie fillers is limited to what will fit in the shells. But there’s no built-in portion control with salads. So it’s no surprise that this Quesadilla Explosion Salad contains a full day’s worth of salt and nearly three-quarters of your day’s calories (it’s the caloric equivalent of 172 Cheetos, in fact). Unfortunately, Chili’s offers only three salads with less than 500 calories. Stick with the Guiltless Grill options, or the salad mentioned below.

Bonus tip: Corona may taste great with Mexican food, but is it the smartest beverage option? Read The 40 Best and Worst Beers to find out. (Otherwise it’s nearly impossible to tell the difference between a bottle of beer with more than 300 calories versus one with just 100—knowing the difference and choosing the smarter swap can save you 20 lbs of fat a year!)

Eat This Instead!
Small Caribbean Salad with Grilled Chicken
490 calories
24 g fat (4 g saturated)
420 mg sodium

#3. Applebee’s Oriental Chicken Salad with Oriental Vinaigrette
1,430 calories

This salad starts out with a bed of “Fresh Asian greens,” according to the menu. Unfortunately, these greens serve as a bed for deep-fried chicken tenders and carbohydrate-heavy crispy noodles. Without dressing, this dish rings in at 840 calories—already more than in an Applebee’s hamburger. But factor in the super-heavy dressing and you’re adding another 590 calories to the mix. To put that in perspective, a lunch sandwich shouldn’t pack more than 500 calories, tops. At Applebee’s, the only salad that won’t sink your entire meal is the Paradise Chicken Salad, which cuts back on calories by using grilled chicken instead of fried and actual produce instead of noodles. (Note: Applebee’s refuses to disclose their nutrition information, so you just might be consuming days’ worth of sodium as well!)

Bonus tip: For full nutrition information for all of your favorite chain restaurants and thousands of foods, download the bestselling Eat This, Not That! to your iPhone. It’s like having your own personal nutritionist in your pocket at all times, and will help you avoid the caloric calamities and guide you to the best ways to lose your belly fast.

Eat This Instead!
Paradise Chicken Salad
340 calories

#2. Cheesecake Factory Caesar Salad with Chicken
1,513 calories
16 g saturated fat
1,481 mg sodium
23 g carbohydrates

The top three words you never want to see sharing a space with “salad” on a menu: tuna, taco, and yes, the mighty Caesar. Consider that tangle of romaine a hapless vehicle for the troubling trinity of croutons, Parmesan cheese, and viscous Caesar dressing. This Cheesecake Factory version is the worst; the elephantine portion yields a salad with more calories than 10 Twinkies! If you’re looking for a salad meal at Cheesecake Factory, choose from the Weight Management varieties—every other salad tops 500 calories.

Weight Management Pear & Endive Salad

1,509 mg sodium
31 g carbohydrates

#1. California Pizza Kitchen Waldorf Chicken Salad with Blue Cheese Dressing (full)
1,570 calories
30 g saturated fat
2,082 mg sodium

CPK is no stranger to the title of “Worst Salad in America”—in fact, last year’s Thai Crunch Salad from California Pizza Kitchen won this dubious distinction for having over 2,000 calories. CPK has since downgraded the Asian-inspired leafy disaster (to a more modest 1,399 calories). Unfortunately, the rest of their salad lineup is still sorely lacking in smart options. This Waldorf Chicken Salad takes the title this year—the blue cheese dressing certainly doesn’t help, and neither does the oversized plate this salad is served on. Believe it or not, your best bet at CPK is to order two slices of thin-crust pizza with any toppings you want. But if you’re set on a salad, choose a half-size of the Moroccan Chicken, below.

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.

..TABLE> ..TR> Crown Lands of the Hawaiian Monarchy

Crown Lands are the Royal families Lands (approximately 1 million acres), the private lands of Kamehameha III, his heirs and successors, which he set aside for the dignity of the royal office with the intent of it being the private properties of his heirs and successors.

The Crown Lands were the private lands of King Kamehameha III.

WHO HAS THE OWNERSHIP OF THESE LANDS?

The U.S. conspirators/terrorists/treasonous persons in collusion with their U.S. government did premeditate the criminal assumption of a neutral, non-violent, independent nation under a Monarchy form of government. Legally, the act was illegal and Queen Liliuokalani documented that the U.S. breached the Law of Nations. Under stress, duress, usurpation, and coercion, Hawaii’s Queen, Kamehameha’s descendants, heirs, and her subjects submitted to the planned U.S. military occupation.

The Treaty with the United States, ratified on the 19th day of August 1850, stated in article I reads:

There shall be perpetual peace and
amity between the United States
and the King of the Hawaiian Islands,
His heirs and successors.

The treaty over Pearl Harbor was due to expire (1894) and the U.S. feared that they would have lost the right to maintain a military base. The premeditation to assume the Kingdom of Hawaii was set through the standing orders from Washington as documented in the New York Times, dated January 9, 1893 or seven (7) days before the criminal dethronement of Hawaii’s Queen on January 16, 1893.

President Benjamin Harrison was then the U.S. head, a former American Civil War General whose Vice President was a bank owner who was well versed in internation money transfers. The U.S. was bankrupt, along with England and their agent James Morgan purchased the U.S. Vice President’s bank and secured funds which were used to finance business, and Wall Street stocks.

President Grover Cleveland won his second term as President after losing to Benjamin Harrison. The U.S. was in a depression in 1893, losses accounted for the expense of the American Civil War which left the U.S., England, and France bankrupt. All three nations did invest in the War which funded the Confederate army, moreso than the Union army. In other words, the move to support slaves, workers for the plantations, etc. was the motivation of funding the War. Briefly, a U.S. representative requested for loans from the Kingdom of Hawaii during King David Kalakaua’s time, and our House of Nobles denied them. The U.S. intended to repay only interest amounts and return the principal after thousands of years.

Conspiracies to assume the Kingdom of Hawaii was planned for years. Conspirators recorded are General Schofield, Lorrin Thurston, Sanford B. Dole, James King, Thomas Akaka, Dr. Mott Smith, U.S. agent B.F. Tracy, Charles Reed Bishop, Albert Francis Judd, etals. are only some of those discovered to have conspired against the Royal families and were set to assume everything, including the Crown Lands, government lands, resources, gold bullions, gold coins, trusts, valuables, shipping income, loans, etc. were regarded by President Grover Cleveland of the U.S.A to be clear violation of International Law.
Although for appearance sake, the U.S. Presidents were actually in collusion with the criminal act of assuming a friendly neutral nation which became a cause for all nations to be on watch for the U.S. and the onward claims utilizing an illegal ‘Monroe Doctrine’ reaching for lands 3,000 miles off of the contiguous coast. President Grover Cleveland’s families included bankers who were in dire straits due to the depression and sought monies to invest, etc. It was during this period that Grover Cleveland sold the U.S. Federal Reserves to private parties leaving the nation without its’ own banking system. It was also during this period that the Standard Oil Company became a monopoly which escaped legal ramifications because of their moves outside of the U.S., with gained support of the U.S. Military through their attorneys who supported the Standard Oil Company Agreement. The Standard Oil Company evolved into EXXON Oil Company with the same permanent heads, the Rockefellers at the helm. The Rockefellers also purchased the Federal Reserve Bank, etc.

Her Majesty Queen Lilioukalani was dethroned by bankrupt, corrupt U.S. agents under the standing order of Washington and the claims to the Crown Lands along with the government lands, etc. were taken on January 17, 1893. Queen Liliuokalani maintained that the claimed provisional government was neither de facto nor dejure and they were an entity. On July 4, 1894, the entity evolved into another illegal entity dubbed the republic of Hawaii which was patterned after the Republic of Texas. Some of the sugar planter’s from the Hawaiian islands had moved over to Mexican territory, squatted on their lands, obtained support from the American military who fought over occupied lands and called it a Republic.

Under continued stress, duress, usurpation, and coercion, Hawaii’s Queen was forcefully made to abdicate her position as queen, and the lands ‘vested in the king for the purpose of maintaining the royal state and dignity’ were criminally assumed by the deviants, criminal belligerents, terrorists, pirates, treasonous persons who were in the employ/citizens of the U.S. government.

The pirates constitution provided ‘That portion of the public domain heretofore, and now to be the property of the Hawaiian government and to be now free and clear from any trust of or concerning the same, and from all claim of any nature whatsoever upon the rents, issues and profits thereof’.

The Newlunds Resolution remained simply a resolution which could not alter the status of our Hawaiian government. Oppositions were documented by 40,000 subjects of Queen Liliuokalani versus 3,000 Americans and paid supporters, including the American military who occupied the Hawaiian archipelago since January 16, 1893.

After the illegal annexation of Hawaii to the United States in 1898, supported by England, France, etals. The organic act, passed by Congress in 1900 establishing a government for the territory exclude Hawaii’s aboriginals/kanaka maoli. Shortly after, 30,000 subjects were recorded as being slaves, ignoring the fact that the Kingdom of Hawaii during Kamehameha III’s reign had passed an anti-slavery law in 1852. The U.S. finally passed theirs (nearly the same wording as the Kingdom of Hawaii’s law) 13 years later, or 1865, shortly after the assassination of U.S. President Abraham Lincoln.

Criminal conversions, piracies, ruthless, unsconscienable transactions occurred including the planned maneuver of passing lands over to the United States, after securing treaties made amongst themselves, and not with the Royal families, the heirs and successors. Their illegal treaty of annexation also provided that ‘the republic of Hawaii also cedes and hereby transfers to the United States the absolute fee and ownership of all public, government, or crown lands,…together with every right and appurtenance thereunto appertaining’. The treaty was not ratified as such, but their joint resolution providing for annexation adopted its terms. The reality is that a resolution is just a resolution, and not law. The illegal moves of a non-warring nation, a neutral non-violent nation was usurped by an active pirate nation, piracies on the open seas occurred. Additionally, Monarchy government land transactions are not the same as a democratic government’s land transactions.

Nevertheless, The United States did premeditate the criminal assumption, piracies of a neutral, non-violent nation, and did WAR with other nations who questioned their actions (Spain, Germany, Japan, Iraq, etc.), and has been documented by our Queen to have breached the Laws of Nations. The U.S., it’s agents, pirates, occupiers descendants remain the law breakers and must remain a concern to all in the world today, because the resources, assets of a Neutral nation has been used to WAR, pillage, plunder upon many, many Innocent nations over time. The acts of annexation, joint resolution, Organic Act, Statehood, etc. continue to be illegal activities recorded for the world to see.

The United States of America, occupiers, criminally claimed over 971,463 acres of Crown Land that belongs to the Royal families, descendants and heirs of Kamehameha, who existed then (1893) and now.

Liens, legal filings, etc. has been made with evidence of conspiracies, piracies, etc. Kamehameha’s descendants, heirs, along with Kamehameha II’s, Kamehameha III’s, Kamehameha IV’s, Kamehameha V’s, King Lunalilo’s, King Kalakaua’s, and Queen Liliuokalani’s families maintain the claims to all hereafter.

As with our alii nui, and alii of the past, we again continue to represent and retain the land claims, etc. of all aboriginal/kanaka maoli in our Hawaiian archipelago.

aloha.
