HAWAI`I TARGET FOR ELECTROMAGNETIC PULSE ATTACK 

Military.com - May 13, 2017

On July 9, 1962, Hawai`i was hit by a massive electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack, which took down the state's communications systems and traffic lights in a matter of minutes -- virtually everything that ran on electricity.

The EMP wasn't an attack by a foreign government; rather, the US government had set off a 1.4-megaton nuclear warhead at a height of 248 miles above Johnston Atoll in an operation the military named "Starfish Prime." 

The test caused radio disruptions in Hawai`i, California, and Alaska, and knocked out six satellites above the Pacific.

"No one expected the test to impact Hawai`i, because it was 850 miles away," said Toby Clairmont, deputy administrator for the Hawai`i Emergency Management Agency, which is located within one of Hawai`'s most recognizable landmarks, Diamond Head. 

"This kind of blast does not hurt people, but as we've seen, it shuts down power and phones and goes after infrastructure and could cause problems at medical facilities."

With North Korea developing its nuclear and intercontinental ballistic missile capabilities, Hawai`i defense experts are concerned North Korea could target the 50th state with an EMP attack. 

Such an explosion, if executed high enough in the atmosphere, could be hundreds of miles from Hawai`i and still damage its operations and communications.
"This is not theoretical. It has already happened," said Clairmont, noting significant damage was done to both civilian and military electrical and communications systems.
The concern regarding the threat of an EMP attack on Hawai`i's electrical grid and communications systems "is real and must be taken seriously," U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawai`i, told Fox News.

"Almost every aspect of our lives is reliant on electricity, much more so than in 1962 -- everything from banking to health care to communications to automobiles -- so you can imagine the devastating impact such an attack could have," Gabbard said.

In Hawai`i, there is an added layer of risk even if the attack were not directed at Hawai`i, Gabbard said.

"If an attack occurred on the mainland and the electric grid were shut down on the West Coast, it would create a crisis in Hawai`i through the total disruption of our food and energy supply chain," Gabbard said.

Hawai`i is possibly a more desirable target than other states, warned Dean Cheng, senior research fellow with the Asian Studies Center at the Heritage Foundation, in part because the headquarters for the United States Pacific Command at Camp Smith is on O`ahu, and the state has 11 military bases, including Pearl Harbor.

WHAT HAS THE OFFICE OF HAWAIIAN AFFAIRS HAS DONE FOR YOU LATELY?

OHAʻs Mauna Kea Adhoc Committee has been nothing but a smoke screen.
 

OHAʻs Mauna Kea visit was a photo op to placate the lāhui and nothing more than a "feel good" PR Job.
 

OHA tries to co-opt any aloha `āina, Mauna Kea and Independence events every time.

When asked about kokua to support those who protest by occupying lands, OHA chair Colette Machado told Kaua`i residents they would need to be incorporated in order to get OHA help and funding.

OHA also stated their hands are tied when it comes to assisting in land occupations unless it comes from the trustee's personally.


OHA paid $50,000 of beneficiary funds to settle trustee Peter Apoʻsexual harassment lawsuit.


OHA is currently being sued by two different parties to remove Apo and return the $50,000 beneficiary funds.


OHA trustees continue to vocalize their "concerns" about not having enough funds for an independent audit.
 

OHA board of trustees did not approve CEO Kamana`o Crabbe's renewal contract.

OHA is currently being investigated in a criminal probe for funds given to a non-profit without proper bidding.


OHA trustees voted to oust Rowena Akana as OHA chair claiming that she was censoring the voice of the lāhui yet current chair Collette Machado is saying and doing the exact same thing.

OFFICE OF HAWAIIAN AFFAIRS GETS "F" FOR TRUTH & TRANSPARENCY
 
Honolulu Civil Beat - May 10, 2017 - Chad Blair

A new report identifies 42 government agencies across the country that have poor practices when it comes to online spending transparency.

One of them is the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, the only city, county or state agency named from Hawaii.

The U.S. PIRG Education Fund’s report, titled Following the Money 2017: Governing in the Shadows, was released last month.

The federation of state Public Interest Research Groups describes itself as “a consumer group that stands up to powerful interests whenever they threaten our health and safety, our financial security, or our right to fully participate in our democratic society.”

The report gives OHA, which had expenditures of $55 million in 2013, a grade of F. 

An Office of Hawaiian Affairs Board of Trustees meeting in January. The meetings are live-streamed, which OHA cites as an example of transparency.

U.S. PIRG gave OHA scores of zero when it comes to online searches for checkbook-spending level information, data that can be downloaded in bulk and the ability to search for keywords, recipients and excluded information.

Only nine other agencies, which U.S. PIRG calls “special purpose districts,” were considered worse than OHA. They include the Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency in California, the King County Rural Library District in Washington state and the Nebraska Public Power District.

“Citizens’ ability to understand how their tax dollars are spent is fundamental to democracy,” the report’s executive summary states. “Budget and spending transparency holds government officials accountable for making smart decisions, checks corruption, and provides citizens an opportunity to affect how government dollars are spent.”
 
Nationwide, there are more than 38,000 special districts that spend more than $200 billion annually.

PIRG evaluated 79 agencies in all. Those topping the list with “A” grades include the Port of Houston Authority in Texas, the Chicago Transit Authority and the Louisville-Jefferson County Metropolitan Sewer District.

“The nation’s most transparent special districts are often those in states that have taken action to require or encourage the posting of financial information online,” the report states.

Asked to comment on the report, OHA CEO Kamana`opono Crabbe said, “Transparency and accountability continue to be top priorities for the Office of Hawaiian Affairs. To this end, we are committed to going above and beyond just complying with minimum open government requirements, such as the state sunshine law.”

As examples, Crabbe said OHA’s monthly report on all board actions and votes is included in its newspaper, Ka Wai Ola, which is distributed to more than 60,000 subscribers in Hawaii and on the mainland.

OHA has also live-streamed Board of Trustee standing committee meetings since 2013. And, OHA posts online meeting agendas and minutes, annual reports, financial statements and procurement and awards information.

At least one OHA trustee thinks OHA can do better.

“While OHA serves the special purpose of bettering the conditions of the Hawaiian people, it is a state government agency which must be transparent and accountable to the public,” said Trustee Keli`i Akina. “In my personal opinion, OHA can improve its online financial transparency by simply creating a website page that provides detailed information on OHA’s revenues, spending, fiscal policies and priorities, and also allows the public to respond with constructive feedback."

Akina, who was elected to the board in November, has lede fforts to scrutinize OHA’s operations through auditing. He supported the majority of trustees who briefly installed Trustee Rowena Akana as board chairwoman.

Akana has long criticized how the agency is run, and she tried to have Crabbe fired. Just this week, Hawaii News Now reported that the state attorney general is investigating whether OHA improperly awarded a lucrative contract without competitive bidding. The report quotes Akana as saying the improper awarding of OHA contracts is rampant. 

Crabbe said efforts at greater financial transparency are already underway.

In March, OHA added a page on its website about its upcoming biennium budget, one that allows for community input. More information on contracts and personnel will be posted beginning in October, he said.

“While transparency and accountability are agency priorities, we also recognize that there will always be room for improvement,” said Crabbe. “In the end, we welcome opportunities to share with our beneficiaries and the public how OHA is managing its trust to meet our legal mandate of bettering the lives of Native Hawaiians.”

HAWAI`I AT RISK OF ATTACK DUE TO US OCCUPATION

US Military Says North Korea Can Hit Hawai`i With Ballistic Missiles

Washington Post - April 26, 2017

The top US military officer in the Pacific said Wednesday that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is “clearly in a position to threaten Hawai`i today” with a ballistic missile attack and that the Pentagon is considering adding new ballistic missile interceptors and defensive radar there to counter that possibility.

Navy Adm. Harry Harris, the chief of US Pacific Command, told the House Armed Services Committee there are already “sufficient” ballistic missile interceptors protecting the United States at Fort Greely in Alaska and Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. But he added there is a possibility that not every missile would be stopped in an attack. Hawai`i, about 2,500 miles to California’s southwest, could benefit from having new equipment to protect itself, he said.

“I believe that our ballistic missile architecture is sufficient to protect Hawai`i today, but it can be overwhelmed,” Harris said. “Somewhere, we would have to make a decision about which missiles to take out, and that’s a hard decision....”
