Tea, Salt & Mauna?

Every day at Hawai'i's Puʻuhonua o Puʻuhuluhulu, people learn in a loving community what being a PROTECTOR means: Aloha ʻĀina - Love the Land.

Aggressive intruders abuse Hawaiian resources. shove aside locals, illegally rip-up family graves, and disrespect the Hawaiian nation.

US Military Occupation is increasingly ugly.
Military force did not conquer Hawai'i or extinguish our neutrality.

LOVE continues. Ku kia’i mauna.  ❤️

Kū Haʻaheo e Kuʻu Hawaiʻi

I've lots of family & friends actively protecting Hawai'i. Many struggle for Aloha ʻĀina or conservation, some seek to remedy theft & abuse of Hawaiian lands by the US military.

Native Hawaiians & allies beg YOU please recognize -- Hawaiians are not a dead people.

Despite decades of colonization and destruction of national neutrality and our inheritance, Hawaiians maintain peaceful, loving communities in Hawai'i and around the world.

Please listen to this chant:
Kū Haʻaheo - Hawaiʻi Loa Medley

"Kū haʻaheo e kuʻu Hawaiʻi" by Na Hinaleimoana Wong-Kalu
Title means "Stand Tall My Hawai'i"

Revive Hawaiian Neutrality Treaties

ALOHA ❤️

Honor Treaties of Neutrality.
Yankee Please Withdraw Your Military from Hawai'i.

Colonial Bostonians did not despise tea. Gandhi-ji & India's satyagrahi did not detest salt. Hawaiians don't hate astronomy.
US Colonial Occupation is intolerable.

TMT Hawai'i is a Trojan Horse

The USA gained use of Pu'u Loa (Pearl Harbor) for a coaling & repair station by Treaty with the Hawaiian Kingdom (see Supplementary Convention of 6 Dec 1884, link).

The USA later schemed to overthrow & supplant the Hawaiian Kingdom's government, and under protest, forcibly annexed Hawai'i as US territory. Pearl Harbor and many other huge tracts of land were forcibly taken for exclusive use by the US military. Islanders lived under martial law for many years.

The US grabbed the highly-sacred 3000-acre Mokapu peninsula, exhumed thousands of Hawaiian graves, and built what's now Marine Corps Base Hawaii.

The USA showed it's deeply-rooted prejudice with the death of Hawaiian athlete Joseph Kahahawai. White colonial torture and murder was put on trial in Honolulu. Convicted of manslaughter, the killers received a commuted sentence of one hour - served over tea in the office of the Territorial Governor. [US Naval Officer Thomas Massie, his mother-in-law, and two Naval enlisted men impersonating the police, kidnapped, tortured & murdered a local man who'd been accused of rape] (link).

The US took Pūowaina above Honolulu, a deeply-significant & sacred site, and built their National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific (Punchbowl) for the US armed forces.

The USA honors inheritance among a certain class of Americans, but ignores birthright among those adjudged lesser people. US law & justice still fail to remedy theft of land from Native Hawaiians; other North American native families are also denied inheritance. Recent migrant settlers resenting native wealth, coveting native lands & resources, have stolen & murdered. These crimes must stop, and restitution must begin.

Now on Hawai'i's sacred Maunakea, the authorities build destructive miles of paved roadways & more off-limits facilities. They claim both science & local communities will benefit from a TMT - Thirty Meter Telescope. Expect further desecration from "military necessity" = A’ole TMT (no)

The USA shamelessly cheats, lies, and steals in Hawai'i. Peace-loving Hawaiians are not fools, and we're not deceived by decades of false-friendly smiles from scheming intruders. Aloha!

People as Livestock?

Colonial powers see Native people as expendable livestock, as cowish critters collateral with stolen land.

Selfish history teaches of discovery - ignoring colonial expansionist genocide.

Hostile miscalculations by Capt. James Cook in Hawai'i brought death at the Battle of Kealakekua on 14 Feb 1779. This defeat of British Empire expeditionary forces led by naval officer Cook is misreported, censored and downplayed by imperial histories, but some Hawaiians recognize a significant victory. Locals must somehow resist when aggressive intruders break the peace & local protocol.

How we view history is important!

Hawaiian Jumbotron?

In tropical Hawai'i, the ice, snow & alpine environment of Maunakea are extraordinary. Outsiders claim Legitimate destruction... continuing their Colonization & Genocide

STOP Thirty-Meter Telescope TMT NO

NO  Jumbotron  Construction !  STOP  TMT

America Promotes Ethnic Cleansing

Nefarious opponents of Hawaiians continue to destroy island graves & pollute important places of worship

Deliberate, strategic, the intruders break Laws. 

Displacing Hawaiian culture is active Ethnic Cleansing = BAD

Disrespect

Confrontation on Mauna Kea stems from DISRESPECT. Disrespect of local sensitivities. Disrespect of religion, kupuna ancestry & Poli'ahu. Disprespect of pace of decisionmaking, ho'oponopono, and Hawaiian health. Continuing gross disrespect from colonists, bitterly evident, makes many Hawaiians angry.

Monument Us Mauna


Monument Us Mauna   by Bru

Raw Hawaiian hike
The Occupier's bootprint
Desecrates all breath

    Yankee goose-fat legs
    Smart Aloha Foot Massage
    Kicks thieves from Our Land

             Generations duped
             into Quiet Submission...
             Hawaiians Awake!


Declaring "it's empty & barren" of meaning, aggressive predators desecrate Hawaiian nature. Wrongs poorly justified: To advertise Swiss medicines on White House banners could save lives. Giant aerial tram to Mt. Fuji's summit could promote alpine access & ecology. It's wrong outsiders further destroy Mauna Kea with force & desperate fury.

Flim Flam Man insists: small space on Mama's cheek is perfect for advertisement. 
Flim Flam Man insists: resistance is futile.

Glow to Tokyo 2020 ?

Japan's Fukushima nuclear meltdown hides an uncomfortable success story: Onagawa Nuclear Plant was nearer the earthquake epicenter, yet survived the shaking & tsunami to properly shutdown.

The "inescapable natural disaster" narrative excusing huge public funding is ridiculous knowing Onagawa's success.

"Onagawa was only 123 kilometers away from the epicenter—60 kilometers closer than Fukushima Daiichi—and the difference in seismic intensity at the two plants was negligible. Furthermore, the tsunami was bigger at Onagawa, reaching a height of 14.3 meters, compared with 13.1 meters at Fukushima Daiichi" [Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists - link]

Tokyo Electric Power Company, TEPCO - the nuclear operator at Fukushima, was terribly negligent and fundamentally criminal.

The Fukushima Nuclear Accident Independent Investigation Commission was succinct [Executive Summary, p.21]: "'Regulatory capture' ... allows individuals to justify their own actions, hide them when inconvenient, and leave no records in order to avoid responsibility. Across the board, the Commission found ignorance and arrogance unforgivable for anyone or any organization that deals with nuclear power. We found a disregard for global trends and a disregard for public safety."

 http://warp.da.ndl.go.jp/.../3856371/naiic.go.jp/en/report/

The Commission Chair wrote [Executive Summary, p.9]:
"What this report cannot fully convey – especially to a global audience – is the mindset that supported the negligence behind this disaster. What must be admitted – very painfully – is that this was a disaster “Made in Japan.” Its fundamental causes are to be found in the ingrained conventions of Japanese culture: our reflexive obedience; our reluctance to question authority; our devotion to ‘sticking with the program’; our groupism; and our insularity."

The Tokyo 2020 Olympics will struggle with many key safety challenges. TEPCO Fukushima continues leaching radiation. There's always the threat of major earthquakes & tsunami throughout Japan. Even potential problems from volcanic eruption should not be ignored. Visitors are unlikely to notice the conceit & arrogance as described in the above report, but the dangerously insular mindset too accepting of authority is still inescapably found across Japan. Those navigating Tokyo 2020, please Beware!

Paradise Coverup!

Urine Trouble Boy

US federal & state officials are hiding details of the unidentified US Army trespasser who fell into Kilauea volcano on 2nd May. Three weeks now passed since he was rescued!

Was he pissing over the edge? ...his friends might have photo evidence.

Administrative coverup arouses global SCANDAL.

We condemn reckless colonialist arrogance exploiting Hawai'i.

Piss Poor US Army

US Army troops visit Kilauea, Hawai'i, and at a place off-limits to civilians & Hawaiians, one soldier clambers over a railing and somehow falls into Halemaumau crater.

Coconut wireless heard half-round the world.  Scuttlebutt sez:
idiot stood on the edge urinating into Madame Pele's home!

Auwe! Hewa to da Max!

Fascist Boot?

I don't know Ola Bini. Maybe I wouldn't like him, maybe he's great.


Mr. Ola Bini was arrested in Quito, Ecuador, in parallel to this week's London arrest of Julian Assange of WikiLeaks.

Governments are colluding against whistle-blowers.  Julian Assange & Ola Bini may be heroes, or maybe assholes, but they are not at all murderers such as some they've revealed. Don't be tricked - without such information we're in the dark

Fairlady? the Furies of Nissan


Commercial Captive Carlos Ghosn, Land of the Rising Sun?

Japan concocts many corporate scandals, struck by: pollution & poisoning, deadly designs, substituting substandard components, circumventing safety audits, working employees to death, etc. -- plus unreported evils. Japan's corporate executives are rarely arrested or incarcerated even when mismanagement brings death or massive trauma (see 企業犯罪, 日本語 Wikipedia).

Nissan Mismanagement Case summary: Gaijin Beware! 

Regardless of fault, "Japan Inc." gossip tarnishes Japan's legal system & damages business. Continuing intrigue harms all Japan.  Nissan's former Chairman still praises Japan, but this video's 4:46 edit will worry his foes.   Heroic stuff!

Sleazy Selling: the Postcard Tax Form

"Postcard" tax filing helped win US tax reform in 2017. Mega-rich got epic tax breaks, but the Republican FairAndSimple.gop website now seems forgotten. Was it all a CON? How is this surreal fantasy working out for you?

They were warned not to promise something unworkable, but laughed - betting on public stupidity & poor memory. The GOP never worked to achieve this promise. It's strong evidence of contempt.

Lambert Proposal: EU Holidays

French President Macron calls for a "European Renaissance" and this week suggests assorted progressive policies, mostly political.

Please consider as well that Europeans still know little about each other.

I suggest European holidays; specifically, four EU-wide days-off each year rotating among the national days of member states. Requiring seven years for one cycle, we'll perhaps drink French beer on 14 July one year, another year have Swedish fish 6 June. We may learn why 12 October is important in Spain, what happened 18 November in Latvia, and why Portuguese celebrate 10 June.

It's a modest proposal, and a chance to learn & party, so let's dare say: FUN.

-- Dr. Bruce Henry Lambert, Stockholm

Civility for Dummies

Calling for "civility" in response to abuse and criminality is wrongheaded. 

Blame Pres. Obama for refusing to prosecute Bush-Cheney-Rumsfeld-Rice-Powell for organizing torture & engineering public deception to wage illegal war in Iraq. Bullies are emboldened when there is no accountability. We're adept at ignoring our own genocidal crimes.
  • Until the 1860s we allowed buying, whipping, owning "colored" people, and subsequently let former "owners" keep all proceeds from their now-illegal trade. 
  •  Native lands & resources are being stolen even today.
In semicivilized America, civility is a dummy (pacifier = what babies suck)

Stealing inheritance

The United States of America stole huge tracts of land from native peoples, forcibly displacing many communities. People were aggressively assimilated or exterminated by mandatory reeducation and military force. 

Systematic efforts to uproot indigenous inheritance continue today, promoted by American industry via corrupt political & legal systems. 

WE Pay for this Outrage; continuing over 400 years we've provided, hired, and paid for the soldiers & muscle, the walls, writs, whips and whitewash. How can just a few rich families claim the pie, leaving crumbs for the rest of us?
