Hawaii’s quest for a new type of independence

Boston Globe, July 23, 2018 has an opinion piece by Steven Kinzer, author of Overthrow: America’s Century of Regime Change from Hawaii to Iraq, arguing that Hawaii’s unique history, geography and culture qualify it for “some form of special status” in relation to the United States.

    I read the article it is such a confused mess of truths and untruths and just plain ignorance. Though to attempt to be kind, I’ve been on a learning curve for years as to the international status of the Hawaiian Kingdom. But, to make any excuses for the United States’ fraudulent annexation and continued occupation…because “the way things are, are the way things are”, to quote Babe, is just pathetic! The time is upon us, in my educated opinion, that there will be the ignorant, those educating themselves, and the wilfully ignorant. “The overthrow of the Royal Family” that’s a new one. What do these people do make it up as they go along? It’s a wilful twisting of the Nation’s continued sovereignty.

    Notice to principal is notice to agent, notice to agent is notice to principal.

    The following are statements of fact rebuttable only by verified affidavit:

    1- A Scottish corporation calling itself “The United States of America, Inc.” and a Delaware corporation calling itself the “United States of America, Inc.” have been usurping the American Government masquerading as a constitutional republic since ~1868.

    2- To incorporate is to agree to submit to some other corporation or entity.  A corporation is limited to powers and authorities of the entity under which it is incorporated. Corporations and their agents only have jurisdiction over other corporations, not over living people.
    -28 U.S. Code § 3002 – Definitions
    (15) “United States” means—
    (A) a Federal corporation;
    -The District of Columbia Organic Act of 1871 created a private corporation within the ten mile square of Washington, District of Columbia. “Corp. U.S.”

    3- The Data Universal Numbering System is a business identification database where corporations are registered, including US corporate government and its major agencies.

    4- All three levels of the United States “Federal Government” have been rendered incompetent. The actual Federal Government is still dormant pending completion of its “reconstruction”. Both the Territorial and Municipal Government have gone bankrupt.

    5- The “Agencies”, including the elected Governor, are NOT ‘Public officials’ responsible to the people. They are not organized under the Executive Branch.’ Rodney–Dale; Class v. NORTH CAROLINA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION, 11 CV 1559, 2011

    6- Oaths of office relinquishes US citizenship; thus, oath takers are acting as foreign agents and are required to file with the Attorney General.
    People v. Vaughn, 196 Cal.App.2d 622, 16 Cal. Rptr. 711. See 18 U.S.C.A. § 911 et seq
    (a) A person who is a national of the United States whether by birth or naturalization, shall lose his nationality by voluntarily performing any of the following acts with the intention of relinquishing United States nationality—
    (2) taking an oath or making an affirmation or other formal declaration of allegiance to a foreign state or a political subdivision thereof
    No person shall act as an agent of a foreign principal unless he has filed with the Attorney General a true and complete registration statement and supplements.

    7- The United States Supreme Court functions actually as a “business”. CRIS (Court Registry Investment System) account is what connects a false judicial system to the bank; it is the mechanism through which they access funds that were created in people’s names without their knowledge.

    8- County, state, and federal governments keep a hidden, second set of books, CAFR, to defraud and steal from people:

    9- The unincorporated Hawaiian government was illegally and unlawfully occupied by the private corporation, United States, through force.
    UNITED STATES PUBLIC LAW 103-150, 103d Congress Joint Resolution 19, Nov. 23, 1993
    “Whereas, the indigenous Hawaiian people never directly relinquished their claims to their inherent sovereignty as a people or over their national lands to the United States, either through their monarchy or through a plebiscite or referendum.
    Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, The Congress
    (3) apologizes to Native Hawaiians on behalf of the people of the United States for the overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii on January 17, 1893 with the participation of agents and citizens of the United States, and the deprivation of the rights of Native Hawaiians to self-determination;
    (4) expresses its commitment to acknowledge the ramifications of the overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii, in order to provide a proper foundation for reconciliation between the United States and the Native Hawaiian people; and
    (5) urges the President of the United States to also acknowledge the ramifications of the overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii and to support reconciliation efforts between the United States and the Native Hawaiian people.

    10- No Treay of Annexation exists.
    Official Protest to the Treaty of Annexation, Presented by Lili`uokalani in Washington D.C., June 17, 1897

    11- Treaties are the supreme law of the land, Article VI of the Constitution
    “…and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.”

    12- The Motu Proprio issued by the Pope on July 11th, 2013, (Roman Curia being the highest legal instrument of all corporations world wide) decree that all corporations and their agents have no immunity.

    13- The bankrupt, incompetent, private corporations, “The United States of America, Inc.”, “United States, Inc.”, “UNITED STATES, INC”, “THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, INC”, and all subsidiaries, all sub corporations and all “State” franchises, have no jurisdiction within the Hawaiian Islands, an independent sovereign nation. These corporations are engaging in war crimes without immunity since 1893.

    I cannot say I understand all that the United States of America is or was or will be in regards to the document above. I do see that the name Kingdom of Hawai’i is used in error. The Hawaiian Kingdom was and is the name of the Country. The Kingdom of Hawai’i refers to Hawai’i Island itself…as when there was the Kingdom of Maui, O’ahu, and Kauai before the unification under Kamehameha I. I always like to mention this is not unusual to have several Kingdoms at once in history, as in England there was at one time The Kingdom of Wessex, The Kingdom of Northumbria, and the Kingdom of Mercer until unification, a lot of history there, and smaller Kingdoms to boot! So, not that unusual. But if we are to move ahead properly we must be on the same page and use the correct information. May I suggest the fine book, Ua Mau Ke Ea?

  • Christopher Sorrell

    Looking again at the name Kingdom of Hawai’i it seems that it was in the god awful original US document/apology and is being quoted…so I understand now that it is the error of the US document not of the author of the document above. Apologies…
