NATIVE HAWAIIAN ROLL "SWEETHEART DEALS" INVESTIGATION REQUESTED
 

A request by the Grassroot Institute of Hawai`i for information about the expenditures of the Native Hawaiian Roll Commission has led to additional questions about the Commission's possible violation of the state procurement code.  

Former Hawai`i Attorney General Michael Lilly has requested that the Directors of the Departments of Commerce and Consumer Affairs and Accounting and General Services review whether the expenditure of over $800,000 on two vendors by the Native Hawaiian Roll Commission without public bid violated the State’s procurement code.  Such a violation of the code is subject to possible criminal and civil penalties.
 

The Grassroot Institute requested from the Office of Hawaiian Affairs the check register of the Native Hawaiian Roll Commission as part of their ongoing government transparency effort. With the Commission's response now made public, citizens and government observers have been stepping forward with more questions about the expenditures listed and the process behind them.

In his letters sent as a private citizen to the state department directors, Michael Lilly states:

Some $4 million was reportedly transferred by OHA to the NHRC. The attached ledger summarizes payments by the NHRC to various vendors including over $600,000 to Makauila, a multimedia company ... Another some $200,000 went to "1013" which is a branding company found on your web site here as "One Zero Ten Three" ... None of these payments to vendors apparently complied with the procurement code, Chapter 103D.


According to Keli'i Akina, Ph.D., President/CEO of Grassroot Institute, "Much of the money being spent by OHA and the Native Hawaiian Roll Commission could better be used to meet the real needs of Hawaiians for housing, job opportunities, education, and health-care.  And, if any of this public money is being fraudulently used, OHA and the Roll Commission must be held accountable."

Mr. Lilly added in a statement to Grassroot Institute: "The procurement code was established to ensure transparency and openness in public bidding, to ensure everyone has an equal right to bid on public contracts and to protect public funds from being overspent on insider deals."

HAWAIIAN FLAG RESOLUTION PASSES STATE SENATE
 

On Monday, April 6, the full Senate unanimously passed Senate Concurrent Resolution (SCR) 39 and Senate Resolution (SR) 14: Requesting the Governor to order the exclusive display of the flag of Hawaii over state buildings on January 17 of each year.

The SR 14 is now adopted by the Senate, while SCR 39 has been transmitted from the Senate to the House for consideration. We will see what committee it gets referred to in the House, then mobilize to lobby for it to be passed.

Mahalo nui to those who came in person to the Senate session on Monday to witness the resos being passed.
 

The Battle of Mauna Kea -
 

Unity is in Aloha Aina! 
 

The Ku’e action to peacefully block the construction of the monstrous “Thirty Meter Telescope” atop Mauna Awakea (Mauna Kea) is going viral. Not only is support pouring in from around the islands but its taking on global dimensions as well. Press and social media is rallying support from all quarters of the world. And it’s just begun.

Governor Ige called for a 1 week suspension of construction, a token move to try to cool things down. But we have to remain vigilant. As we’ve seen in the past (Naue, for instance), these periods of truce are often used by developers to jump ahead with construction while the people’s guard is down. Our side is wisely using this time to rally even more people to kokua and malama aina…
 

Next Committee Of Hawaiian Nationals Meeting -
 

The Committee of Hawaiian Nationals is having another Talk-Story Briefing at Native Books (Na Mea) at Ward Warehouse on Monday, April 13 from 6:00-8:30 PM. See the attached flyer.

We’ll be catching up on a lot of recent developments plus discussing new Ku’e Actions (like Mauna Kea), international initiatives and ways we can be effective in bringing about a Free Hawaii.

WHAT CAN AMERICANS DO TO HELP FREE HAWAI`I?

US Americans should start using critical thinking in resolving the Hawai`i fake state issue.

If in fact the US is unlawfully occupying Hawai`i logically it should deoccupy it.

US Americans should become familiar with the laws of occupation to understand the issues.

They will then also understand the folly of the failed attempt to turn Hawaiians into American indians and tribes through Kana`iolowalu, the Native Hawaiian roll and what it seditiously represented.

Itʻs well past time for US citizens to learn of the outright lies and misrepresentations of facts that have been fostered on US Americans and what has and is being done in their name.

Amid myths and hoax lie documented facts with US admittance of complicity through covert and overt activities to destabilize the Hawaiian Kingdom. 

US actions include outright invasion and takeover through a declaration among those involved, with the covert assistance of the US which was unbeknownst to the citizens of the Kingdom over a century ago.

This all took shape in insurgents staging a fake revolution to validate the villainous actions spurred by US government officials and their American agents and counterparts residing within the Hawaiian Kingdom.

CURIOUS ABOUT HOW HAWAI`I SUPPOSEDLY BECAME A US STATE ?

The United States acquired Hawai`i through force.

Queen Lili'uokalani, Hawai`i's last Queen, was deposed on Jan. 17, 1893, by a group of American businessmen supported by the United States Navy and Marine Corps and diplomatic representatives.

Sovereignty of Hawai`i was allegedly transferred to the US on Aug. 12, 1898 during ceremonies at `Iolani Palace in Honolulu, on the island of O`ahu.

Hawai`i allegedly became a US territory in 1900.

On Nov. 23, 1993, the United States apologized for illegally overthrowing the Kingdom of Hawai`i, and recognized the inherent sovereignty and right of self-determination of native islanders.

Needless to say, a lot of shady events took place between January 17,1893 and August 21, 1959.

Today, the US and itʻs puppet, the fake state of Hawai`i, is attempting to cover over itʻs illegal and immoral acts by offering to make native Hawaiians American Indians and place them on reservations.

Needless to say Hawaiian sovereignty is a hot issue in the islands to this day and likely will be for as long as the United States illegal occupation of Hawai`i continues.

Hawaiian Kingdom Nationals Were Told They Were Adopted - But Instead Found Out They'd Been Kidnapped.

ALERT! - OHAʻS SECRET PLAN TO GIVE KANA`IOLOWALU $350,000 

Please forward this to all Hawaiians and our supporters.
 

By now you may have seen the recent publicly released financial records of the Native Hawaiian Roll Commission (NHRC) because of an open records request from the Grassroot Institute.

These NHRC financial records reveal missing checks, mysterious payments and widespread wrongdoing.

Here are just a few examples gleaned so far from their check register -

  • $23,679 was paid to the Council For Native Hawaiian Advancement.
  • $10,384 was paid to Roll Commissioner Robin Danner.
  • A single check in the amount of $10,000 was paid to Leimomi Khan.
  • Political operative Norma Wong was paid almost $500,000.
  • Two checks each for $100,000 were paid to “1013.”
  • Multiple checks were written to Makauila, Inc., a media company run by Amy Kalili who happens to be the girlfriend of Native Hawaiian Roll Commissioner Na'alehu Anthony.

And this is the tip of the iceberg.

You may view the NHRC check register here - TinyURL.com/NHRCBombshell


These are Hawaiian beneficiary funds given to the NHRC by the Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA.)

Accordingly, we want to make you aware of a very recently discovered secret OHA plan to give additional Hawaiian beneficiary funds in the amount of $350,000 to the the Native Hawaiian Roll Commissioners.

OHA Trustee Chairperson Robert Lindsey hatched the plan and is its chief advocate.

Highly reliable sources have reported Chairperson Lindseyʻs strategy is to wait until three OHA trustees who oppose further funding are temporarily away from OHA and then quickly schedule an OHA board of trustees meeting so the remaining trustees can have a majority vote to approve this scheme.

Sources have told us this special board of trustee meeting will be scheduled with only  twenty-four hour public notice so that neighbor island beneficiaries will not be able to attend and those on O`ahu will hopefully be caught off guard.

The strategy is to move quickly to minimize public opposition and accomplish passage before most even become aware of it.

Therefore, we ask you to contact OHA Chairperson Robert Lindsey today to let him know you are aware of and outraged by his secret plan to further fund the Native Hawaiian roll.

Let him know in light of the financial wrongdoing that has already been discovered, you want OHA to immediately cease funding all nation-building activities.

Please also contact the other OHA trustees with the same message.

TWO RESOLUTIONS TO SUPPORT -  COMMITTEE OF HAWAIIAN NATIONALS  UPDATE

The Committee of Hawaiian Nationals is pleased to announce that we were able to get two resolutions (with concurrent resolutions) introduced at the Hawaii State Legislature. Now we have to lobby to get them passed.

The purpose of these resolutions is to get the fake state to respect our nationality and stop discrimination and mistreatment of Hawaiian nationals. 

If we can mobilize a fraction of the energy and mana’o that was used to stop the Carleton Ching appointment and other bad stuff from happening, just think what we can do to get good stuff going! These “resos" may seem insignificant, but they will have a huge, game-changing impact!

TWO PAIRS OF RESOLUTIONS


House Resolution 45 (HR 45) is titled: “RECOGNIZING HAWAIIAN NATIONALS AS A POPULATION RESIDING LAWFULLY IN THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS”  Passage of this resolution would be a game-changer. It would have the fake state acknowledge (admit) the lawful status of Hawaiian nationals and it would stop the discriminatory actions currently being committed against Hawaiian nationals by state law enforcement, judiciary, agencies, etc.

HR 45 was introduced by Rep Kaniela Ing and it has been referred to the House Ocean Marine Resources & Hawaiian Affairs (OMH); Judiciary (JUD) and Finance (FIN) committees in that order.

To view the status of HR 45 go here

To read the text of the resolution go here

House Concurrent Resolution 85 (HCR 85) is identical and has also been referred to OMH, JUD and FIN.

Start lobbying Kaniela Ing now, to schedule a hearing for both HR 45 and HCR 85.  Here are Rep Ing’s coordinates -

Representative Kaniela Ing
Hawaii State Capitol Room 311
phone: 808-586-8525
reping@capitol.hawaii.gov

Prepare your testimony now in support of HR 45 and HCR 85 so when the hearing is announced you’ll be ready to. Spread the word and let’s get as many people as possible involved.

-----
Senate Resolution 14 (SR 14) and Senate Concurrent Resolution 39 (SCR 39) are identical: REQUESTING THE GOVERNOR TO ORDER THE EXCLUSIVE DISPLAY OF THE FLAG OF HAWAII OVER STATE BUILDINGS ON JANUARY 17 OF EACH YEAR.

To view the status of SR 14 go here

To read the text of the resolution go here

It’s not as strong as we asked for, but it is a start. Main thing is that it reminds the fake state every year of the significance of the date.

The resolutions were introduced by Sen. Maile Shimabukuro and referred to the Senate Government Operations (GVO) committee.

Let’s organize some lobbying behind this!

1. We have to get it heard by the Senate Government Operations Committee

2. To do so, we have to coax the committee chair, Sen. Donovan Dela Cruz to schedule and hold a hearing.

3. That means generating lots of phone calls and emails requesting Sen. Dela Cruz to schedule a hearing for SR 14 and SCR 39. Here are his coordinates -

Senator Donovan Dela Cruz
Hawaii State Capitol Room 202
phone: 808-586-6090fax: 808-586-6091
sendelacruz@capitol.hawaii.gov

Once the hearing date is set, make sure to get lots of in-person and sent-in testimonies submitted, favoring the resolutions.

Again, the object is to have the state and the people of Hawaii honor the significance of the January 17 date every year.

HAS THE ILLEGAL US OCCUPATION OF HAWAI`I WORKED?

Waikiki Beach Is Totally Man-Made & Disappearing 

Huffington Post - March 9, 2015

Tourists in bikinis and board shorts packed onto the narrow strip of sand fronting the iconic Royal Hawaiian and Moana Surfrider hotels on a recent weekday. Dozens of novice surfers lurched to catch waist-high waves in the turquoise water.

It’s a scene that has played out for decades at the world-famous beach that lures several million people a year to Waikiki, generating about 42 percent of the state’s visitor industry revenue.

But the beach stretching to the Kuhio Beach Basin, where a bronze statue of famous surfer Duke Kahanamoku welcomes visitors with outstretched arms, is in danger of disappearing.


A crumbling, century-old stone wall that juts out from the Royal Hawaiian Hotel is in imminent danger of collapsing, say scientists. The groin is the sole reason sand remains along this main stretch of Waikiki Beach.

Without it, the beach in front of the Royal Hawaiian would likely disappear in a matter of days, said Dolan Eversole, a scientist with the University of Hawaii’s Sea Grant program. It would take several months to a year for the rest of the stretch of sand to erode.

Most visitors may not know it, but Waikiki Beach is almost entirely man-made. It has had erosion problems since the late-1800s when developers began erecting hotels and homes too close to the natural shoreline and building seawalls and other structures that blocked the natural ebb and flow of sand along the beach.

By 1950, more than 80 structures, including seawalls, groins, piers and storm drains, were counted along the Waikiki shoreline, according to a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers report.

Efforts to combat the resulting erosion have been haphazard, however, and with sea level rise now claiming about a foot of the beach a year, the threat of losing Waikiki Beach has become more dire.

“Waikiki is arguably as important as a slice of the H-1 and if a part of the H-1 needed maintenance there would be no question that we would go and maintain it, repave it, fill potholes,” said Chip Fletcher, a coastal geologist and associate dean at the University of Hawaii’s School of Ocean and Earth Science Technology. “Well, that is what we are doing to Waikiki Beach -- it’s maintenance. If it costs millions of dollars, there is abundant economic justification for that.”

The groin jutting out from the Royal Hawaiian isn’t the only structure in danger of collapsing. Many of the old shoreline structures in Waikiki weren’t engineered to modern standards and are at risk of failing, according to scientists. 

And some of the beaches along Waikiki have been gone for years, including parts of Kaimana and Gray’s Beach and an area on the Ewa side of the Natatorium. Just a few years ago, water was flooding the bar at the Moana Hotel because there was no beach left, noted Eversole.
