Articles on Hawaiian independence

Around this anniversary commemoration of the illegal invasion of the Hawaiian Kingdom and overthrow of its lawful government by the United States (which we now have proof was planned and executed with malicious intention from the very top), the status of Hawaii is getting some national press coverage with these three articles:

Is Hawaii an Occupied State?” by Umi Perkins in The Nation

Review: Francis A. Boyle’s Restoring the Kingdom of Hawaii: The Kanaka Maoli Route to Independence” by Catherine Bauknight in the Huffington Post

Native Hawaiians debate best path to sovereignty” by Cathy Bussewitz from Associated Press (AP)

    Aloha Scott,

    I posted this link on, but left no comment:

    In my opinion, I think President Putin’s description of
    the changing world is accurate.

    “The very notion of ‘national sovereignty’ became a relative
    value for most countries. In essence, what was being proposed
    was the formula: the greater the loyalty towards the world’s
    sole power centre, the greater this or that ruling regime’s legitimacy.”

    The Hawaiian Kingdom presents a problem for the world’s sole
    power center. The global ruling regimes are confronted with
    information backed by evidence on the events that occurred
    in Hawaii concerning the sovereign Hawaiian Kingdom 122
    years ago. The irony in a regime’s recognition for a greater
    ruling legitimacy while discounting the sovereignty of the
    Hawaiian Kingdom would enslave them to the sole power and
    giving them in reality no respectable equal right.

    “The measures taken against those who refuse to submit are well-known and have been tried and tested many times. They
    include use of force, economic and propaganda pressure,
    meddling in domestic affairs, and appeals to a kind of
    ‘supra-legal’ legitimacy when they need to justify illegal intervention in this or that conflict or toppling inconvenient regimes. . .”

    Given Hawaii’s unique situation it automatically defaults to
    measures taken against it!

    “I will add that international relations must be based on international law, which itself should rest on moral principles
    such as justice, equality and truth. Perhaps most important is respect for one’s partners and their interests. This is an obvious formula, but simply following it could radically change the global situation.”

    I think in short, countries that do not support the truth may
    one day find the truth used against them!

    As we navigate the future its good to see what’s currently going
    on in the global community.
