Our Best Interest…


Youʻd be surprised to know how many countries at the United Nations empathize and agree with our quest to free Hawaiʻi from the United States.

When the UN started in 1945, there were 51 independent member countries. Today there are 193! That means nearly three-fourths of the current UN became independent and gained membership through some form of struggle for liberation; many through a peaceful decolonization process, but many through armed conflict — some extremely violent and bloody. Thus, the great majority of the UN members understand what it means to struggle for, and finally gain, independence.

So why don’t countries that empathize with us just recognize Hawaiʻi as an independent nation and expose the United States’ blatant ‘statehood’ scam? It’s surprisingly simple… self-preservation.

About 10 years ago, I was chatting with a Carribean ambassador to the UN and he said to me: “Remember that every diplomat has been sent by his country to look after the best interests of his country”. A diplomats’ job is not only to pursue what will be good for his/her country, but they must do their utmost to avoid what could be harmful. Wow! That explains why it’s not all cut-and-dry, right or wrong.

Decisions are made by the individual country based on how that decision will affect the country’s interests. At this point, any country that dares to profess Hawaiʻi is independent (even out of the noblest of intentions), would bring upon itself retaliation from the U.S. And the U.S. has abundantly demonstrated (ever since they grabbed Hawaiʻi in 1898) the extent it will go to have its way… invasion … regime change… denationalization… political suppression… economic bondage and so forth. A country may totally agree that our country was unlawfully usurped and is under belligerent occupation, but to challenge the U.S. directly on this matter would be suicidal.

Over the past few years our discussion with countries has been, how can they help us at minimal risk to themselves?

We have found a way… and are working on implementing a plan at the UN General Assembly. Since Hawaiʻi is not a member of that country club (and we’re not trying to become one) we are relying on its members to call on the General Assembly to conduct a procedural revue of a resolution the General Assembly itself passed in 1959 that basically consigned the Hawaiian Islands to the United States.

The purpose of the plan is to cause the UN General Assembly to discover that it made an error in accepting the U.S.’ report claiming the Hawaiian people had freely consented (through the Statehood Plebiscite) to become a “state” of the United States. And in discovering they made an error, the UN General Assembly would be required by its own rules, to rescind that 1959 resolution. Thus, the U.S. claim that Hawaiʻi is a state of the U.S. becomes null and void. And, by default, the Hawaiian Kingdom emerges as a sovereign, independent nation-state.

Yes, that outcome would be in the best interest of Hawaiʻi, but it would also be in the best interest of the rest of the world… including (whether they appreciate it or not) the United States.

Ua mau ke ea o ka ʻāina i ka pono. The sovereignty (life) of the land is perpetuated in righteousness.

Saving Ohia: Hawaii’s Sacred Tree

Saving Ohia is a 3x Emmy Award-winning film about Rapid Ohia Death, a disease, new to science, eating away at the heart of Hawai’i and its keystone species, Ohia. Hundreds of thousands of trees are dead, and while the disease continues to spread, scientists are racing to find answers, working with conservationists and residents to preserve the unique ecosystem and way of life in Hawai’i. A newly discovered fungal disease continues to rapidly affect thousands of native ohia trees throughout Hawaii, decimating forests and threatening the species’ very existence. Meet the team of scientists, conservationists, and local Hawaii residents fighting to conserve this indigenous tree and protect the fragile ecosystem it supports. Saving Ohia highlights the significance of ohia, and documents the growing crisis of Rapid Ohia Death (ROD) that is currently destroying thousands of acres of forests in Hawaii. The film provides an in-depth look into the cultural and ecological importance of the keystone species, ohia, and the potential impact of the evolving epidemic. Ohia trees cover nearly 1 million acres statewide, and are the backbone of Hawaii’s native forests and watersheds. As a vital piece of the island’s ecology, the ohia tree is the pioneer species, strong enough to take root and grow through volcanic rock. Since it’s initial discovery in 2010, the disease has advanced across the island, including treasured preserves like Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. The disease was most recently detected on Kaua’i in May 2018, marking it’s first spread across multiple islands. — 5 Steps You Can Take To Combat Rapid Ohia Death — Avoid Injuring Ohia: Wounds serve as entry points for the fungi and increase the odds that the tree will become infected. Don’t Transport Ohia Inter-Island: Quarantine rule’s to help prevent ROD are in effect from spreading. Don’t move ‘ōhi‘a plants, whole or parts, ohia wood, or soil from Hawaiʻi island Don’t Move Ohia: Reduce spread, refrain from moving ohia logs and branches around Hawaii Island. If you don’t know where the wood is from, don’t move it and keep it out of the green waste. Clean Your Gear & Tools: If you must work around or cut ohia, clean tools and gear before and after use. Brush all soil off of tools and gear, then spray with 70% rubbing alcohol. Shoes and clothes should also be cleaned before and after entering forests for hiking, trips, or camping.. Wash Your Vehicle: Wash the tires and undercarriage of your vehicle with detergent and remove all soil or mud, especially after traveling from an area with ROD or if you’ve traveled off-road.

The Ohia: The Story of Hawaii’s Tree

Hawaii’s beloved Ohia tree grows on nearly a million acres of forest across the Hawaiian Islands. In 2010, Rapid Ohia Death, a fungus, began to affect the forests. Learn about the Ohia and find out what you can do to stop the spread of the disease.
