Trump’s Gettysburg Address against the New World Order

The Trump movement is an existential threat to the established order that consistently adopts the agenda and practices from the cabal of the NWO globalists. It is because of this opposition to the transnational ruling despots that the vicious, deceitful and unending assault on Trump and his followers has been unleashed, since real meaningful change cannot be allowed that would reverse the systematic destruction of Western Civilization.

Trump Presents 100-Day Plan To Make America Great Again – For Everyone

“I’m not a politician, and have never wanted to be one. But when I saw the trouble our country was in, I knew I couldn’t stand by and watch any longer. Our country has been so good to me, I love our country, I felt I had to act,” said Mr. Trump in his address.

Just what DOES the Federal Trade Commission Antitrust Division DO Anymore?

It appears that yet again, once more, Obama-appointee FTC Antitrust Chairwoman Edith Ramirez is asleep at her desk.

When are we, the American People, going to begin to hold our elected (and non-elected but appointed) government leaders’ collective feet to the fire?

The latest news broadcasts from up on high is that AT&T is about to buy Time-Warner Cable, for a cool 85 billion dollars.

The USA are about to face the worst crisis of their history

How Putin’s example might inspire Trump

Watching the last Presidential debate was a rather depressing experience. I thought that Trump did pretty well, but that really is not the point here. The point is this: no matter who wins, an acute crisis is inevitable.

Consider the vicious hate campaign which all these “personalities” (from actors, to politicians to reporters) have unleashed against Trump...

Vote for Donald Trump or LOSE America forever

VOTERS WARNED: You've already lost America... this election is about taking it back in the last non-violent way possible: At the voting booth.

If you’re not following the flurry of email dumps now being released every 24 hours by Wikileaks, you’re missing out on the most damning revelations of systemic government corruption in the history of this nation.

Jill Stein Issues New Hillary WW3 Warning

Hillary is of incredible service to Wall Street and to the War profiteers.

"...it would be extremely dangerous to have in the White House a person susceptible to uncontrollable rage"

Until I viewed the video in the URL below, I had concluded from my time spent with Republicans that the Republican Party was more corrupt than the Democratic Party. But after watching this 16 minute video report, which seems too much to be faked, the Democratic political establishment—not necessarily the Americans who vote Democrat—seem to be corrupt beyond the meaning of the word. Make up your own mind.

Democratic dirty tricks operative unwittingly provides a dark money trail to the DNC and Clinton campaign.

WikiLeaks: The two faces of Hillary Clinton on Syria

Clinton’s deliberate duplicity on a number of policy positions.

Note: Hillary Clinton says politics requires “both a public and a private position” on policy. Fresh Wikileaks revelations now give us some detailed insight into what she means by this. I take a peek into her “private-versus-public” positions on Syria in this article. And it ain’t pretty. Little wonder that only 30% of Americans find her “honest and trustworthy.”

Wall Street speeches reveal the real Hillary

The (true) story that Hillary Clinton is a liar on issues big and small, that she uses half-truths, deceptions and dissembling to cover up her reprobate behavior is an old one.

But it’s a story Hillary breathes more life into every day she moves closer to becoming president. The latest treasure trove of evidence: a WikiLeaks email dump chronicling her two-faced behavior in such dramatic tones that it should be required reading for anyone who thinks she has the temperament to lead this country. (She hasn’t denied the emails’ authenticity.)

20 Reasons Why It Should Be Donald Trump in 2016

He is not your ordinary politician. Yes, Trump is different. Guess what? That’s a good thing. His ideas – e.g., a sound immigration policy, returning manufacturing jobs to America, negotiating better trade deals – are not at all radical, but do go against the Washington status-quo.

You see, we’re supposed to select another perfectly malleable politician – a Republican not unlike a Democrat – who won’t shake things up too much while in office. Same ol’, same ol’. And you, little person, you are supposed to vote for more of the same and like it. But the American public has reached a tipping point – we’d rather gouge out our eyes than select another career politician or Washington insider. That’s just electing the problem to fix the problem.

It seems that with every single day, both the Mainstream and Alternative Media are reporting more and more innocent men, women, children, and little babies being blown to bits by bombs and artillery, or drowning somewhere off the coast in some remote ocean off of North Africa or Southern Europe on their way to flee from the bombed out desperation and horror of NATO’s carpet bombing of Libya, or from Western Intelligence and Saudi Arabia/Turkey/Israel’s proxy group ISIS, and their collective attacks on Yemen, Syria, Iraq, and the Kurds.

With each and every additional single day of this mindless bloodshed, the world watches and wonders why it is being allowed to continue.

Donald Trump Is Right: America’s Infrastructure Is Falling Apart

The amount of money that the US Transportation takes in ever year, particularly within the Tri-State Area, is truly staggering – some would argue that is in the trillions of dollars per year with the obscene amount of tolls, taxes (federal state and local) as well as the other methods of raising revenue that should be earmarked for American infrastructure – the ultimate question is where the hell is all of this money going?

People constantly talk about “Auditing the Fed,” but what about auditing the US Department of Transportation?

‘Beholden to AIPAC’ — progressive senators

Senators Warren, Murphy, Brown sign letter seeking to limit Obama’s actions...

The news that many progressive US senators as well as vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine signed on to an Israel lobby letter designed to limit President Obama’s actions against the Israeli occupation, now nearly 50 years old, has been widely reported, but the plain facts need to be stated.

Yesterday the Israel lobby group AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, flexed its muscle against President Obama and on the side of Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu by posting a letter signed by 88 senators warning President Obama not to back any international measures that would pressure Israel to withdraw from occupied territories.

No more provocations from Washington. Period. The insanity must stop. Now.

If the dumbshit Western peoples and the corrupt EU, UK, Canadian, Japanese, and Australian political puppets don’t wake up ASAP, war will be upon us, a war that cannot be won.

The criminal neoconservatives must immediately be removed from power in Washington before the insane fools start World War 3.

The CIA and the Pentagon must be put under tight constraints. And Donald Trump needs a massive trustworthy security guard.

The European governments need to immediately disband the NATO alliance.

Did the Pentagon Bomb Syrian Army to Kill Ceasefire Deal?

The US has officially taken responsibility for the incident which it called a “mistake”...

A rift between the Pentagon and the White House turned into open rebellion on Saturday when two US F-16s and two A-10 warplanes bombed Syrian Arab Army (SAA) positions at Deir al-Zor killing at least 62 Syrian regulars and wounding 100 others.

Many analysts now wonder whether the attacks are an indication that the neocon-strewn DOD is actively engaged in sabotaging President Obama’s Syria policy, a claim that implies that the Pentagon is led by anti-democratic rebels who reject the Constitutional authority of the civilian leadership. Saturday’s bloodletting strongly suggests that a mutiny is brewing at the War Department.

How Trump Wins the Debate

Trump has the same imperative and same opportunity as JFK and Reagan.

He has to meet and exceed expectations, which are not terribly high. He has to convince a plurality of voters, who seem prepared to vote for him, that he’s not a terrible risk, and that he will be a president of whom they can be proud.

He has to show the country a Trump that contradicts the caricature created by those who dominate our politics, culture and press.

The Trump on stage at Hofstra University will have 90 minutes to show that the malicious cartoon of Donald Trump is a libelous lie.

Donald Trump vs Hillary Clinton – The debate

Question: What kind of foreign policy agenda can we expect?

Donald Trump is one of the most unorthodox presidential nominees in American electoral history. He is unpolished and very brash. But some of his foreign policy ideas are intriguing, even common sense. This terrifies and enrages the establishment.

The Hillary Doctrine: if elected, what kind of foreign policy agenda can we expect? Does Clinton hold an extreme view of American exceptionalism? And is she now a neoconservative?

America's first wave-produced power goes online in Hawaii

Off the coast of Hawaii, a tall buoy bobs and sways in the water, using the rise and fall of the waves to generate electricity.

The current travels through an undersea cable for a mile to a military base, where it feeds into Oahu's power grid—the first wave-produced electricity to go online in the U.S.

By some estimates, the ocean's endless motion packs enough power to meet a quarter of America's energy needs and dramatically reduce the nation's reliance on oil, gas and coal.

But wave energy technology lags well behind wind and solar power, with important technical hurdles still to be overcome.

FBI grilled over handling of Clinton investigation

As lawmakers continued to probe Hillary Clinton’s private email use, the aide who set up the service declined to appear before the House committee. FBI officials had to be given a summons to produce documents on the investigation.

On Tuesday, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee summoned contractors and former State Department officials who set up and maintained Clinton’s email servers and mobile devices. However, the key Clinton aide, Bryan Pagliano, did not show up for the hearing, pleading Fifth Amendment protections against self-incrimination.

The afternoon before, the committee dressed down FBI’s Acting Assistant Director for Congressional Affairs Jason Herring, who was at pains to explain his absence from a major meeting last week and the bureau’s reluctance to hand over unredacted investigation documents.

Is Hawaii's Kilauea volcano about to blow? Lava lake at summit of world's most active volcano is rising

Visitors to Hawaii's Kilauea volcano are being treated to dramatic views of a lake of lava bubbling and splattering at its summit after it rose to one of its highest level in 42 years.

Geologists say the rising lava lake marks a new period of activity from the 4,100 feet high volcano as the summit has repeatedly risen and shrank in the past few days.

The lava lake in the crater at the summit is unusually high and has risen to within 16 feet (5m) of the rim that contains it.

Scientists at the US Geological Survey (USGS) said it was part of a long term inflation of the summit magma reservoir that has been ongoing since 2010.

It is well known that the Israeli Mossad using their Sayanim network in the United States routinely engage in Black Operations (“Black Ops”) against US Citizens here in the United States.

They usually target anyone who they deem to be antithetical or non-supportive of Israeli domestic and foreign policy.

There is virtually no escape from this type of black op once a target has been selected.

They routinely target senators, congressmen, politicians, celebrities, CEOs, academics, intellectuals, journalists, diplomats, or anyone of relative importance in American society.

A lousy dancer blames the uneven floor, and Mme Clinton had proven to be an unexpectedly lousy dancer in the competition for the presidency against the blundering New York tycoon. We would expect her to win or lose graciously, as befits a former First Lady, but gosh, she is clumsy – and blames her lack of grace on poor Mr Putin.

Caesar was renowned for his multitasking; he could dictate seven letters at once, wrote Pliny. But even Caesar lookalike Putin can’t play the role prepared for him by Ms Clinton and other mainstream Western politicians, that is to bear blame for all their shortcomings.

The pueo (Asio flammeus sandwichensis) is a subspecies of the short-eared owl that is endemic to Hawaii. The pueo is one of more famous of the various physical forms assumed by ?aum?kua (ancestor spirits) in Hawaiian culture.

Pueo inhabit forests and grasslands throughout the islands of Hawai?i, although their numbers seem to be declining, particularly in the last two decades, and especially on the island of O?ahu, upon which they were at one time numerous. Pueo is listed by the state of Hawai?i as an endangered species on the island of O?ahu.[3]

Hawaiian seafood caught by low-paid foreign crews confined to boats

Pier 17 doesn’t even show up on most Honolulu maps. Cars whiz past it on their way to Waikiki’s famous white sand beaches. Yet passing tourists, let alone locals, are unaware that just behind a guarded gate, another world exists: foreign fishermen confined to American boats for years at a time.

Hundreds of undocumented men are employed in this unique U.S. fishing fleet, due to a federal loophole that allows them to work but exempts them from most basic labor protections. Many come from impoverished Southeast Asian and Pacific nations to take the dangerous jobs, which can pay as little as 70 cents an hour.

Pentagon And CIA at War in Syria

What a mess! In the crazy Syrian war, US-backed and armed groups are fighting other US-backed rebel groups. How can this be?

It is so because the Obama White House had stirred up war in Syria but then lost control of the process. When the US has a strong president, he can usually keep the military and intelligence agencies on a tight leash.
But the Obama administration has had a weak secretary of defense and a bunch of lady strategists who are the worst military commanders since Louis XV, who put his mistress, Madame de Pompadour, in charge of French military forces during the Seven Year’s War.

As a result, the two arms of offensive US strategic power, the Pentagon and CIA, went separate ways in Syria. Growing competition between the US military and militarized CIA broke into the open in Syria.

Fed up with the astounding incompetence of the White House, the US military launched and supported its own rebel groups in Syria, while CIA did the same.

The Tide is Turning: The Official Story Is Now The Conspiracy Theory — Paul Craig Roberts

The question is: who are the real conspiracy kooks, the majority who disbelieve the official lies or the minority who believe the official lies?

In a few days it will be the 15th anniversary of 9/11, and this November 13 will be the 53rd anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas, Texas. These two state crimes against democracy destroyed American democracy, accountable government, and the Constitution’s protections of civil liberty.

Years after the damage done by these events the American people no longer believe the official stories. Neither does the government, but the government will never validate the distrust that Americans now share of “their” government by acknowledging the truth.

They were about to be targeted.”

Andrew added:

“They need to marginalize and demonize those that would stand up to their hardball, toxic, and antidemocratic tactics … But it won’t work. Given a fair hearing, given just the slightest exposure — and the American people will rise to the occasion. They see these tactics for what they are.”

The Neocon in the Oval Office

Neoconservatives are wedded to war, death and destruction. It is the foundation of their policy and it dominates the culture that they have created.

If Hillary Rodham Clinton becomes US President, she will be the first neoconservative to actually occupy that office.

Israel and its supporters were inseparable from the neoconservative movement from the beginning.

Many neocons were already Zionist or pro-Zionist, and their support for aggressive militarism was largely indistinguishable from Israel’s own strategic plans.

To the extent that the neocon movement could sell Israel’s views as solidly American, it could bend the resources of the most powerful military on earth for Israel’s own ends.

Hawaii avoids direct hit from Tropical Storm Madeline; Hurricane Lester looms

Storm system Madeline missed making a direct impact on Hawaii after being downgraded from a hurricane to a tropical storm but the Big Island is bracing for Hurricane Lester over the weekend.

The Real Secret of the South China Sea

To understand the Big Picture, we need to go back to 1890 when Alfred Mahan, then president of the US Naval College, wrote the seminal The Influence of Sea Power Upon History, 1660-1783. Mahan’s central thesis is that the US should go global in search of new markets, and protect these new trade routes through a network of naval bases.

That is the embryo of the US Empire of Bases – which de facto started after the Spanish-American war, over a century ago, when the US graduated to Pacific power status by annexing the Philippines, Hawaii and Guam.

Julian Assange: “1,700 emails” proves Hillary Clinton sold weapons to ISIS in Syria

“A vote today for Hillary Clinton is a vote for endless, stupid war,” - Julian Assange

In Obama’s second term, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton authorized the shipment of American-made arms to Qatar, a country beholden to the Muslim Brotherhood, and friendly to the Libyan rebels, in an effort to topple the Libyan/Gaddafi government, and then ship those arms to Syria in order to fund Al Qaeda, and topple Assad in Syria.

BRANDON RITTIMAN: So, I want to start by asking. Hillary Clinton did make history. I know she’s not your favorite person, but she made history by becoming the first female presidential nominee from a major party in American history.

Do you acknowledge that? Is that a positive step for the country?

TRUMP: She’s got bad judgment. Everything she’s touched has turned bad. Whether it’s Syria, or Libya, or the migration, or the beginning of the Iran deal. She’s got horrible judgment. She voted for the war in Iraq. Another mistake. She was in favor of NAFTA. Another mistake. She’s got bad judgment.

We’re going to have a woman president, but it shouldn’t be her. She would be catastrophic for our country.

Number sickened in Hawaii Hepatitis A outbreak hits 135

The outbreak of Hepatitis A in the islands has now sickened 135 people, the state Health Department said Wednesday.

What you need to know about Oahu's Hepatitis A outbreak
State investigating outbreak of Hepatitis A on Oahu
All cases have been in adults, and 39 have required hospitalization.

The total number of cases statewide is up by 42 people since last week. The onset of illness ranges from June 12 to July 24.

This is by far the largest outbreak of Hepatitis A in the islands in decades. State health officials said the outbreak appears to be focused on Oahu, but its source remains unclear. Seven of those who have been sickened live on the Neighbor Islands; one visitor has returned to the mainland.

The last outbreak of Hepatitis A in the United States happened in 2013, and was linked to frozen pomegranate seeds from Turkey.

Turmoil at Honolulu’s Bishop Museum

The Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum in Hawaii, which holds the world’s largest and most important collection of cultural artifacts and natural history specimens from the Pacific Basin and Oceania, has seen some challenging times. Following a scandal over the alleged misuse of funds by its former director, the institution’s finances remain perilous and researchers claim that much of the collection is inaccessible, leading to fears that some pieces might have disappeared. …

The Stolen Nation of Hawaii

Produced by Ken Nichols O'Keefe in early 2001, this is the virtually unknown story of Hawaii and the hidden Genocide being committed by the American government with the use of 'blood quantum' for the purpose of eliminating the Hawaiian national; and the reason America does this? Because according to their own laws, America never lawfully annexed Hawaii*, therefore according to law Hawaii never became a state, and if the Hawaiian land was never lawfully annexed, the only true claimant to the land, is the Hawaiian national.

Kilauea lava flow elicits crowds, smiles

Is the volcano goddess Pele smiling?

Volcano videographer Mick Kalber, of Tropical Visions Video, captured this image on video of what appears to be a crooked smiley face in the lava lake at Puu Oo vent on Wednesday, a day after lava reached the ocean from the Puu Oo.

The cracks of bright molten lava in the lake are formed as lava circulates and the black, semi-solid lake surface pulls apart.

At the Kamokuna ocean entry, the sight of the lava falling over a steep ocean cliff to the sea has attracted thousands of visitors.

In Signal to Military, Hillary Clinton Picks Senator Tim Kaine as Running Mate

In selecting Kaine, Clinton is making clear that she plans on running a right-wing, pro-war campaign targeted at winning over the military and sections of the Republican Party dissatisfied with Trump, and particularly with the Republican candidate’s attitude toward Russia. Clinton also wanted to repudiate any association with the issues of social inequality that motivated the widespread support for her main rival in the primaries, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.

Kaine is among the most hawkish figures among Senate Democrats. As governor of Virginia from 2006 to 2010, Kaine oversaw billions of dollars in cuts to the state budget. The state of Virginia is a major center for the military and defense industry, and is home to the Pentagon and the headquarters of the CIA.

Between 2009 and 2011, Kaine served as the head of the Democratic National Committee, the leadership body of the Democratic Party. He is close to Wall Street, having recently backed measures to deregulate banks.

Eric Trump’s full speech at the 2016 Republican National Convention

“To whom much is given, much will be required.

“This is the very belief that made my father make this great sacrifice.
“To run for the most powerful yet unforgiving office in the world.

“There is no greater calling….

“Vote for the candidate who can’t be bought, sold, purchased, coerced, intimidated or steered from the path that is right, and just and true….

“To the veteran tuning into this speech from his or her hospital, whose been ignored and disrespected by an ungrateful system, my father is running for you….

“Vote for the one candidate who does not need this job.”

— Eric Trump, son of GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, spoke Wednesday night at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

Jill Stein Just BLASTED the DNC Over Leaked Emails

“This latest revelation from WikiLeaks underscores how much the media is in bed with the DNC to circle the wagons around Hillary,” Stein told US Uncut in a phone interview. “The corruption and underhanded tactics and deception and conspiratorial efforts to silence Bernie and delegitimize him — I mean, welcome to the Green Party. This is what we’ve been up against forever.”

“The leaked DNC emails are the smoking gun that the Democratic establishment was rigging the game against Bernie the whole time,” Stein said in a press release issued by her campaign. “Instead of running the process impartially and letting the voters decide, top Democratic officials were doing all they could to ensure a Clinton victory, including collusion with journalists to present a pro-Clinton, anti-Sanders narrative.”

Tropical storms in East Pacific could become hurricanes this weekend

Two more tropical cyclones are spinning in the East Pacific, while former Tropical Storm Estelle weakened to a post-tropical cyclone.

Donald Trump and the Revolt of the Proles

The Trump phenom is about economic insecurity. This isn’t about ideology, or racism, it’s about reality;

Western elites were shocked by Brexit, shocked that all their fear mongering and finger-wagging amounted to nothing. The same is true in the US, where the media’s daily attacks on Trump have failed to erode his base of support at all, in fact, they may have added to it.

That’s the reality that made Trump possible, and that’s what this election is about, economic insecurity.

Tropical Storm Darby

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Current track has the storm center right over us on Oahu 2AM Monday. The storm is also strengthening.

Now, one factor does not appear to be included in the computer models, and that is what happens when the storm passes over that huge plume of heat rising from the volcanoes on the southern part of the Big Island. In the past I have seen storms, including one full-blown hurricane, tear apart when passing through that area. So, I am not going to get real worried until this time tomorrow morning.

Hillary Rebuffs Bernie’s Policy Demands

Eager to hold the political “center,” Hillary Clinton has budged little on Bernie Sanders’s policy proposals beyond nice-sounding platitudes, a strategy that could lead to clashes at the Democratic convention, says Lawrence Davidson.

Hillary Clinton has pursued the presidency for almost a decade with a tenacious determination. She almost achieved the nomination in 2008 only to lose to Barack Obama. That led to an eight-year stifling of this ambition.

Finally, in the long run-up to the 2016 election, she was convinced the nomination was hers.

Jeremy Corbyn gives #Chilcot statement

The much-edited Chilcot Report finally arrived and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has issued a pretty-sounding apology for his party’s decision to go to war in Iraq in 2003. He called it the most serious foreign policy calamity of the last 60 years and “a stain on our party and country”.

It’s unfortunate that he dignifies the evil Iraq war conspiracy by suggesting it had anything to do with policy of the British people. It was a private venture, pledged in secret, by a Labour prime minister and his closest henchmen, and backed by the Cabinet.

Iraq Verdict: Trouble if heads don’t roll

Trump Hammers On Brexit, “Independence Day” And Repudiation Of Rule By The Global Elite

One thing is clear, whether or not everyone will agree with what is said, Trump is at least speaking more directly than most politicians do

Globalists and Neocons Prove Incapable of Understanding Reality

If Trump wants to put America first, he needs to start firing the Neoconservatives and their lackeys from the White House and putting them on trial for making Americans look really bad.

Rather than listening and learning and modifying their actions, the ruling elites stick to “more of the same.” This process clearly emblematized by the endless procession of Bushes and Clintons replacing each other in the positions of power.

Russia May Test-Fire Its Most Powerful Ballistic Missile Sarmat Near Hawaii


Good luck Mike and Claire!

“As a rule, our missiles were tested using Plesetsk — Kura trajectory or Baikonur — Kura. The range of such a flight does not exceed 7,000 kilometers, while many of our missiles on tactical and technical characteristics fly well over 12,000 kilometers. In this case, our military must fire from the north to the area near the Hawaiian Islands. The test is difficult, but it is necessary,” Esin explained.

Homeless count up: Report shows Hawaii Island increased by 153

The Hawaii Point-In-Time Count, an annual survey of the state’s homeless population, was released Wednesday, and the results were a mixed bag of both encouraging and disconcerting numbers.

The homeless tally statewide increased from 7,620 to 7,921, a jump of 301 homeless individuals, or a total increase of 4 percent. That movement is moderate, however, when compared to leaps made in the previous two years. The homeless population rose by 583 individuals (9.2 percent) between 2013-14 and by 702 individuals (10.1 percent) between 2014-15.

Whether the inflated numbers can or should be spun as a positive simply because they’re expanding more gradually than before is open to discussion.

Well I don’t know why I came here tonight

I’m so scared in case I fall off my chair,
And I’m wondering how I’ll get down the stairs,
Clowns to the left of me,
Jokers to the right, here I am,
Stuck in the middle with you.
Yes I’m stuck in the middle with you,
And I’m wondering what it is I should do,
It’s so hard to keep this smile from my face,
Losing control, yeah, I’m all over the place,
Clowns to the left of me, Jokers to the right…

Victory Is Possible – Israel Shamir

Brexit is a game-changing event. Now Euro-sceptics all over Europe has got fresh wind in their sails.

Few people expected the positive outcome of Brexit referendum. Among other doubters, I expected the UK government will borrow a trick from the Clinton collection, and proclaim the "Bremain" hath it.

The political establishment of both leading parties, the Tories and Labour, wished to remain in the cosy lap of the EC. This was the will of the Bank of England, and of the City of London; of the powerful media lords, of the creative minority of yuppies, of cosmopolitan intellectuals.

FLASHBACK - Hawaii Moves One Step Closer to Declaring Sovereignty from U.S. Government

This week, Native Hawaiians initiated an historical election that may grant them sovereignty from the United States and the state of Hawaii, itself, after well over a century of colonial rule. More than 95,000 indigenous people will elect delegates to a constitutional convention, scheduled for this winter, when they will work to create a government that serves and represents Native Hawaiians — the only group of indigenous people in the United States currently restricted from forming their own government.

In the 19th century, European and American missionaries and traders began settling in Hawaii. They quickly formed a political movement and succeeded in transferring power from the king to his cabinet and the legislature. Though they drafted a new constitution limiting the king’s control, they also limited the voting rights of Asians and Native Hawaiians while granting that right to wealthy non-citizens.

Webmaster's Commentary: 
Jun 28 10:01


Hawaii is an odd place. Smack dab in the middle of the world’s largest ocean it has been said that Hawaii is as close to the developing world as one can come (in some respects) and still be in the 50 United States. It has weird politics. (From which our current president politically sprouted it should be noted.) It has a strong Leftward tilt in many ways. The Communist Party of Hawaii of the 1940s and 1950s was arguably the strongest of the communist parties in the USA. The flag has the Union Jack on it with American stripes. It’s the home of surfing. (My first love.) It’s the only state which is wholly tropical. It has active volcanoes. Hawaii is an outlier in practically everything. I guess putting perfectly law abiding gun owners on an FBI list is just another one of these weird things. Let’s hope this sort of over the top statism just stays out in the deep blue of the North Pacific.

Now, Zuckerberg has built another giant unsightly wall around his property in Hawaii.

Retired frigates to be target of live-fire tests at RIMPAC exercise

The retired frigate USS Thach will be sunk during Rim of the Pacific war games in July from fire including the first Harpoon missile shot from a littoral combat ship, a type of U.S. warship being deployed regularly to Singapore and the volatile South China Sea.

The Navy originally wanted 52 of the now controversial littoral combat ships, which were touted for their speed and shallow draft for operations in near-shore environments against pirates, mines and diesel submarines.

With the rise of China, however, concerns were raised about the ships’ armor and lethality, and the Pentagon reduced the total and is seeking a more robust frigate as a replacement.

While in Hawaii, the littoral combat ship USS Coronado will test the greater lethality of a Harpoon missile, which has the capability of destroying enemy ships 100 miles away, the Navy said. The Navy is seeking to arm all of its LCSs with over-the-horizon missiles.

Hawaii is not legally a state!

Most folks have heard that Hawaii is a state, one of the United States of America. Most people, including those who live in Hawaii, accept that statement as a fact.

But the reality is that in a world in which nations are as bound by the rule of laws as are the citizens of nations (if not more so), the truth is quite different!

The truth is that each and every step along Hawaii's path from sovereign and independent nation, to annexed territory, to state, was done in violation of laws and treaties then in effect, without regard to the wishes of the Hawaiian people. Many people, including President Grover Cleveland, opposed the annexation of Hawaii.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The success of BREXIT has not only triggered a wave of new referendums across Europe but energized secession movements here in the US, such as in Texas.

Here in Hawaii, the situation is simpler. Hawaii's statehood is of dubious legality to start with. But the local sovereignty movements are feeling the inspiration of BREXIT, and we may see some changes start to happen in the islands. We will be having a guest on this topic in the coming days.

Trump as the ‘Relative Peace Candidate’

The danger to the rest of us is not Trump, but Hillary Clinton. She is no maverick. She embodies the resilience and violence of a system whose vaunted ‘exceptionalism’ is totalitarian with an occasional liberal face.”

Hillary Clinton has shown no real remorse over her support for neocon “regime changes,” aggressive wars and belligerence toward Russia, leaving the oft-obnoxious Donald Trump as the relative peace candidate, says John V. Walsh.

Let us hear from these heretics, among them William Greider, Glen Ford, John Pilger, Jean Bricmont, Stephen F. Cohen and William Blum. Their words are not to be construed as “endorsements,” but rather an acknowledgement of Trump’s anti-interventionist views, the impact those views are having and the alternative he poses to Hillary Clinton in the current electoral contest.

Choosing to speak in San Diego, home base of the U.S. Pacific Fleet, on a platform draped with 19 American flags and preceded by half an hour of military marching music, Hillary Clinton was certain of finding a friendly audience for her celebration of American “strength”, “values” and “exceptionalism”. Cheered on by a military audience, Hillary was already assuming the role to which she most ardently aspires: that of Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces.

As usual, she goes for the military solution, ridiculing the notion of diplomacy.

Hillary Clinton: Electing a Foreign Spy for President?

As Sherlock Holmes would say, “We are entering in deep waters, Watson”.

The executive leadership now faces the problem of how to deal with a traitor, who may be the Democratic Party nominee for US President. How do the executive leadership and intelligence agencies back a foreign spy for president, who has been deeply compromised and can be blackmailed? This may explain why the FBI, NSA, and CIA hesitate to press charges; hesitate to even seriously investigate, despite the obvious nature of her offenses. Most of all it explains why there is no indication of the identity of Secretary Clinton’s correspondents in the various reports so far available.

'Minivan-sized' sea creature discovered off Hawaii

Two Hawaii scientists believe they've come across one of them, and it's a jaw-dropping wonder.
A "minivan-sized" sea sponge was discovered deep in the ocean near Hawaii, according to findings published this week in the scientific journal Marine Biodiversity.
Scientists aboard the NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer spotted the massive sea creature at a depth of 7,000 feet within the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument, a protected U.S. National Monument spanning 140,000 square miles of ocean, during a month-long expedition from July to August of 2015.

Did Clinton’s Emails Expose CIA Agents?

Even as Hillary Clinton closes in on the Democratic nomination, facts continue to emerge indicating that her sloppy email practices may have endangered secrets, including the identities of covert operatives, writes Peter Van Buren.

These are facts. You can look at the source documents yourself. This is not opinion, conjecture, or rumor. Hillary Clinton transmitted the names of American intelligence officials via her unclassified email.

From a series of Clinton emails, numerous names were redacted in the State Department releases with the classification code “B3 CIA PERS/ORG,” a highly specialized classification that means the information, if released, would violate the Central Intelligence Act of 1949 by exposing the names of CIA officials.

As Sherlock Holmes would say, “We are entering in deep waters, Watson”.

There are several lines of inquiry against Mme. Clinton:

(1) Did she work with, as yet unnamed, foreign governments and intelligence services to strengthen their positions and against the interest of the United States?

(2) Did she provide information on the operations and policy positions of various key US policymakers to competitors, adversaries or allies undermining the activities of military, intelligence and State Department officials?

(3) Did she seek to enhance her personal power within the US administration to push her aggressive policy of serial pre-emptive wars over and against veteran State Department and Pentagon officials who favored traditional diplomacy and less violent confrontation?

(4) Did she prepare a ‘covert team’, using foreign or dual national operative, to lay the groundwork for her bid for the presidency and her ultimate goal of supreme military and political power?

A lot of businesses along the route have been driven out of business because people cannot easily get into the parking lots! 50% over budget (so far) and two years late (so far) and now there is talk of shortening the route, with the Honolulu end stopping at Middle street rather than Ala Moana, with a bus line to take people the rest of the way to their destinations! The money would have been better spent buying everyone on Oahu a new electric car!

Maui Completely Stops Spraying Roundup, Switches to Organic Herbicides

By Christina Sarich

Maui’s State Department of Transportation just agreed not to spray Monsanto’s Roundup along roadways. All purchases of the glyphosate-based, carcinogenic weed killer have been halted, according to Maui Mama. What’s more, the department is about to change the signs on all of their spray trucks to say “Certified Organic Herbicide.”

Beyond Pesticides has also agreed to teach county workers how to make the switch from the health-damaging Roundup chemical applications to a non-toxic solution, FREE OF CHARGE. The county of Maui has yet to take the offer to heart, but with some world-wide support, they could be gently urged to do so...

Stop the purchase and use of Roundup and other glyphosate based herbicides and neonicotinoid in our parks, roadways, and near schools.

We the residents of Maui and the state of Hawai'i, ask Maui County and the State of Hawaii to stop the use of Round Up and Neonicotinoids immediately and permanently.

The long term and often excessive use of the herbicide Roundup Pro, and other glyphosate based herbicides to control weeds in our city parks and roadways unnecessarily expose children, adults, and wildlife to a toxic stew of chemicals.

This poison is being sprayed all over our roadways, city parks, and next to schools. And with no warning, signs, or mandated limitations around application? This must stop. There are better ways to keep up our parks, roadways and playgrounds without spraying toxins that harm our children!

Study eyes risk of big tsunami in Hawaii from mega-earthquake in Aleutians

A mega-tsunami in Hawaii generated by an Aleutian Islands earthquake with a magnitude of 9.0 or higher would affect more than 300,000 people, the state estimates, and cause some $40 billion in damage.

But how probable is an event like that?

A team of University of Hawaii at Manoa researchers spent five years trying to answer that question, and here's what they concluded: There's a 9 percent chance of Hawaii suffering a direct hit from such a mega-tsunami in the next 50 years.

In other words, rare but possible.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Back in 1964 there was a magnitude 9.2 quake that hit Anchorage, Alaska. The Tsunami wiped out much of the city of Hilo, on the Big Island.

Hawaii OKs $12M to tackle homelessness

Hawaii lawmakers set aside more money to tackle the highest rate of homelessness in the nation — a crisis that has left families with children living on sidewalks alongside the beaches of paradise.

The Legislature allocated $12 million in new funding during the session ending Thursday. It will go toward social services and clearing out homeless encampments.

The amount surpassed Gov. David Ige's funding request and added to the more than $15 million the state already spends annually to address the problem.

Hawaii under martial law was ‘military dictatorship’ (1941-1944)

In declaring martial law, all forms of civilian law were suspended. An entire new system of justice and order was instituted and controlled at the absolute discretion of Lt. Gen. Short — the newly declared “Military Governor” of the islands.

The transfer of power meant that all civilian courts would be closed, and all government functions — federal, territorial, and municipal — would be placed under military control. The U.S. Constitution was suspended and civilians no longer guaranteed any individual rights or protections from the government. Civilians had no freedom of speech, self-defense, assembly, or protections from from unreasonable search and seizures, inter alia.

Hawaii considering decriminalizing all recreational drugs for personal use

It’s a bold move, the likes of which hasn’t been seen in recent United States history: The state of Hawaii is on the cusp of decriminalizing ALL recreational drugs. If the resolution passes, Hawaii would become the first state to investigate alternative solutions for treating drug addiction other than just locking people up.

The US Is Militarizing the Pacific – and Not Taking Questions

Though overshadowed by unrest in the Middle East, the pivot remains very much underway. Already the US has expanded and established new military exercises and agreements with Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Vietnam, the Philippines, and other parts of Southeast Asia – as well as Myanmar, Bangladesh, India, Mongolia, and even China.

The linchpin of this military realignment is my home state of Hawaii, which has hosted the headquarters of the US Pacific Command, or USPACOM, for almost 70 years.

Beyond Scrutiny

Based on the island of Oahu, USPACOM claims the Asia-Pacific as its “area of responsibility.” Home to 36 nations – and more than half the world’s population – the region stretches, in the words of top military brass, “from Bollywood to Hollywood and penguins to polar bears.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The "power projection" of US military might from here on Oahu, coupled with the military activities controlled here, make this island potentially a first-strike, decap target for any Chinese war against the United States.

As an Oahu resident, that makes me more than a little nervous.

I would strongly suggest we constituents deserve some kind of answer from the "alleged" Representatives who ducked this reporter's questions, and ask them seriously about what they are doing to prevent a potential "Oahuclypse" if there is a war with China.

Hawaii's last sugar plantation workers can get federal help

Workers left without a job when the state's last sugar plantation closes this year will be able to get financial help.

Hawaiian Commercial and Sugar Co. employees who lose their jobs will be able to get money through a federal program to help replace lost wages, U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, announced Monday.

About 675 Maui residents work for Hawaii's last sugar plantation, which plans to end sugar operations by the end of 2016. Under the federal program, workers could receive up to $2,000 a month for a year while they're retrained for a new job. That's in addition to state benefits and job training.

Hawaii Citizens Beat Monsanto, Bypass ‘Right To Spray’ Pesticides Bill

Residents of the Hawaiian Islands just breathed a sigh of relief – literally, as the deadline passed for Hawaii’s House Judiciary Committee to hear House Bill 849, relating to Right to Farm, that would force residents to succumb to pesticide spraying without any say. All the while, companies like Monsanto, Dow, Syngenta, and BASF use Hawaii land as a testing ground for GM crops.

On Sunday a group of indigenous people affected by oil spills in the Peruvian Amazon seized a group of eight members of the Peruvian Air Force who came to assess the area in a military helicopter. The natives demanded compensation for the oil spills’ pollution. In an official statement, the Peruvian Air Force (FAP) reported that both the helicopter and its crew are in perfect condition. The head of communications of the Interethnic Association for the Development of the Peruvian Rainforest (AIDESEP), Segundo Chuquipiondo, said the helicopter was taken so that an emergency would be declared in the 20 communities affected by the spill and not just in 16.

ACLU: Hawaii GOP bills aim to punish homeless for ‘basic life functions’ — like sleeping

The American Civil Liberties Union of Hawaii warned this week that bills being pushed by Hawaii’s Maui County Mayor Alan Arakawa (R) would punish homeless people for “the basic life functions of sleeping and going to the bathroom.”

In an email on Friday, ACLU of Hawaii legal director Daniel Gluck told The Maui News that his group “strongly opposed” several bills being offered to prevent homeless people from sleeping on sidewalks or going to the bathroom in public areas.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to Maui County Mayor Arakawa; as a Hawaii State resident, sir, this is one of the most hamfistedly, pigheadedly pieces of proposed legislation I have ever seen, not to mention decidedly cruel in its intent.

Criminalising homelessness doesn't solve the problem; it exacerbates that problem, and thinking people understand this.

It is obvious to me that you and your minions need to go on a junket to Salt Lake City, Utah, where city officials have pretty much eliminated the problem of homelessness almost completely.

And how have they done that?!? They crunched the numbers, and realized that it was ultimately cheaper to house these people, and hook them up with social services to get them back in the work force, than throw them in jail, or fine them with fines they cannot possibly pay.

This is both a logical, and compassionate, response to a complex problem, and the good news is, it is working for Salt Lake City; why can something like that NOT work for the State of Hawaii?!?

Hawaii: 120 Years of US Occupation: Militarism and “America’s Pacific Century”

Many tourists from the US and around the world visit Hawaii for its beautiful islands and its beaches covered with white sand. It is known for its food and traditional luau celebrations, its native people and its culture. When you vacation in Hawaii it offers surfing, snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing, hiking and many other activities. It has been the 50th State of the United States since August 21st, 1959. Since statehood, tourism has been the main industry followed by Education, Government and the Military. However, Hawaii was a country whose government of Queen Lili’uokalani was overthrown more than 120 years ago on January 17th, 1893, when Hawaii was actually known as the Kingdom of Hawaii. It is a part of history that needs to be told.

VOLCANO WATCH: Mauna Loa, Earth’s Largest Active Volcano, is Still Stirring

Despite not being in the headlines, Mauna Loa continues to be in a state of unrest based on seismic and deformation monitoring data.

The USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory’s improved seismic network began to detect increasingly frequent, small earthquakes on Mauna Loa as early as 2013. Renewed inflation of the volcano was detected by HVO’s GPS network and also with Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) in 2014. Based on the elevated rates of earthquakes and persistent inflation, the Volcano Alert Level for Mauna Loa was elevated from Normal to Advisory on September 15, 2015.

According to the USGS Alert-Notification System for Volcanic Activity, an Advisory level indicates that the volcano is showing signs of unrest above known background levels, but does not mean that an eruption certain. Another period of Mauna Loa unrest in 2004–2005 included inflation and anomalous seismicity, but did not result in an eruption.

Presidential Elections 2016: The Revolt of the Masses

Commentators grossly oversimplify when they reduce the revolt to incoherent expressions of ‘anger’.

The presidential elections of 2016 have several unique characteristics that defy common wisdom about political practices in 21st century America.

Clearly the established political machinery – party elites and their corporate backers -have (in part) lost control of the nomination process and confront ‘unwanted’ candidates who are campaigning with programs and pronouncements that polarize the electorate.

But there are other more specific factors, which have energized the electorate and speak to recent US history. These portend and reflect a realignment of US politics.

In this essay, we will outline these changes and their larger consequences for the future of American politics.

We will examine how these factors affect each of the two major parties.

Missiles in paradise: Kauai island faces controversial Hawaii defense plan

When 2016 began with North Korea declaring it had detonated a hydrogen bomb, its fourth nuclear test, the U.S. military had already tested a land-based Aegis Ashore missile defense system in Hawaii — Lockheed Martin’s version of the short-to-intermediate-range ballistic missile defense (BMD) system used on Aegis Navy destroyers.

Now, as tension mounts after Pyongyang’s satellite launch on Feb. 7, media reports suggest the Pentagon is mulling making the Aegis Ashore test facility operational at the Pacific Missile Range Facility (PMRF) at the Barking Sands naval base on the Hawaiian island of Kauai.

A Navy spokesman said, “There are no plans for an operational site of Aegis Ashore at PMRF. It was constructed as a test and training site only.” But Adm. Harry B. Harris Jr., the commander of U.S. Pacific Command, has publicly stated that he believes the Aegis Ashore test facility should be considered as an operational site.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks as though if the US military has its way on Kauai, all of us in the state will have a ring-side seat to any Chinese or Russian bombardment of our islands!!!!

And, of course, the geopolitical "ownership" of these islands (if the onslaught doesn't destroy too much of the infrastructure) translates as power projection, either East or West, depending on who has staked their claim here, militarily.

What in sam's hill ever happened to the US government's capabilities to enter into honest, good-faith negotiations, as a way to resolve geopolitical disputes?!?

It appears that this process is completely gone from DC's mindset,and the only thing this government is capable of doing is attempting to win its geopolitical battles only by military means.

And this is a problem, because right now, the US military doesn't have the money, the weapons, the troop strength, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome against either Russia or China.

And how has our military come to this point? Because the weapons procurement process has become incestuously corrupt, and those politicians who steer various weapons programs to various weapons manufacturers get taken care of handsomely by those same companies.

And how that translates for our military in the field is that when these weapons are finally deployed, many times they do not work as advertised; are chronically late, and horrifically over budget.

Please understand; as a Christian pacifist, I abhor war, and I never advocate violence. However, when it comes to weapons for our men and women in uniform, I want them to have the best, which perform as advertised, and are supplied on time and within budget.
