Quick Update on the foreclosure case against Routh Bolomet
The courtroom was packed with people in support of Routh at the September 18 court proceedings in Honolulu. Judge Castagnetti allowed Routh to present her position as a Kingdom subject. Reminding the judge of the memo from Dr. Alfred deZayas of the UN, Routh questioned the jurisdiction of the court and provided evidence of apparent collusion and conspiracy to commit fraud among the lenders and state courts. Routh has put the courts, the “State of Hawaii” and the lending institutions on notice with some very serious assertions. Instead of responding, Judge Castagnetti has scheduled another court session for this case for October 23… probably to figure out what to do about their predicament…
Councilwoman(?) Jen Ruggles
Dr. deZayasʻ memo also plays a key part in Puna councilwoman, Jen Ruggles, recusing herself from her Hawaii County Council position. Letʻs remember that without Dr. deZayasʻ memo, which is really about Routh Bolometʻs foreclosure case, Jen would still be a voting council member. However, now she is still waiting for a satisfactory answer to her question of whether her participation in the County Council would make her liable for war crimes and other violations of international law. Meanwhile, she has conducted town meetings on the United Statesʻ international obligation to administer Hawaiian Kingdom laws in compliance to the Laws of Occupation. She also recently challenged the Queenʻs Medical Center for illegally altering its original mandate, in order to diminish (and even deny) access to services by its intended clients, native Hawaiians.
At the UN in New York
The 73rd Session of the UN General Assembly opened this week and many dignitaries and heads of state were in New York. I’ve been here in New York to meet with several delegations to follow up on the advice by their ambassadors to “talk to their capitols.” We are setting up visits to those capitols in the near future to speak with leaders about getting their assistance to advance some resolutions at the UN that would help greatly to change the notion that the Hawaiian Islands is part of the United States… or that the “State of Hawaii” is located in the Hawaiian Islands. Things are about to ʻhuliʻ at the international level…

THE SITUATION OF THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS
QUICK FACT #3
Can Hawaii Function as a Free Country?
- Yes! Like many other small countries, Hawaii can function very nicely as an independent country. As an existing sovereign country, the Hawaiian Kingdom’s framework for self-governance is still intact with its constitution, treaties, session laws, civil codes, etc.
- Most of the systems, structures, mechanisms — and the people — necessary to run a modern, fully functioning country are already in place, right now…currently operating as the “State of Hawaii” and the United States of America.
- Think of it as a change of management — transitioning from being American-operated to being Hawaiian-operated. We would not have to re-build the entire operating system from scratch or even put it through major overhaul. The transition can be done with minor tweaks as a smooth and orderly change of management… with a friendly management style.
- Management Hawaiian-style would be people-friendly, infusing values like Aloha Aina into the operations of governance, economics, education, food production, land policies, security and other vital national functions.
YES! We can do this! Our kupuna criss-crossed the vast ocean with waʻa made of wood and leaves! They operated a productive, fully sustainable agricultural system that would be the envy of the world today… While the rest of the original peoples and nations were falling to colonialism and imperialism the Hawaiian Kingdom gained recognition as an sovereign, independent state. So, YES! We can do this!
