“I’m Not Political”

Staff on a break at Auschwitz Nazi Concentration & Extermination Camp During the Holocaust!

From early 1942 until late 1944, transport trains delivered Jews and others to the camp’s gas chambers from all over German-occupied Europe, where they were killed en masse with the cyanide-based poison Zyklon B, originally developed to be used as a pesticide. An estimated 1.3 million people were sent to the camp, of whom at least 1.1 million died… Many of those not killed in the gas chambers died of starvation, forced labor, infectious diseases, individual executions, and medical experiments. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auschwitz_concentration_camp

Hawaii is the U.S. Command Center & Staging Ground for Nuclear War!

Camp H.M. Smith above Aloha stadium is headquarters of the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command covering more than 50% of the earth. U.S. nuclear submarines and strategic nuclear bombers are based on Oahu. The Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA) located in the center of Hawaii Island, is a training ground for nuclear war and military human experimentation.

Israel’s Netanyahu issues veiled threat of nuclear attack against its “many enemies”

https://israelpalestinenews. org/netanyahu-issues-veiled- threat-of-nuclear-attack- against-its-many-enemies/

Netanyahu used a visit to an Israeli atomic reactor to warn Iran and others that Israel has the means to destroy them. “Our enemies know very well what Israel is capable of doing.” He said that the weak are slaughtered and erased from history…

Israel is the only nuclear power in the Middle East. The country is reported to have between 100 and 400 nuclear weapons. While Israel has never officially admitted this fact, Israeli leaders periodically threaten their use…

Aid to nuclear armed Israel illegal under U.S. law

The 1976 Symington and Glenn Amendments to the Foreign Assistance Act prohibit U.S. aid from being given to countries that have not signed the nuclear nonproliferation agreement… Public evidence of Israeli weapons finally became available in 1986 when the London Times published information from Israeli whistleblower Mordechai Vanunu. (Vanunu was kidnapped by Israel and imprisoned for 18 years, 12 of them in solitary detention.”)… The following year a Pentagon report also documented the Israeli nuclear weapons program.

Despite that fact, U.S. aid to Israel has continued. According to the think tank Research: MIddle East Policy, Israel has so far received approximately $234 billion in illegal aid. A package to give Israel $38 billion over the next ten years is currently before Congress, the largest such aid package in U.S. history. So far, U.S. media have failed to tell Americans about the legislation… Aid to Israel is also illegal under the Leahy Laws, which prohibit U.S. aid to countries guilty of human rights violations.”

What is your “Spirit of Hawaii?”

Monday, August 20th, 2018

B-2 Bombers in Hawaii

Three B-2 Nuclear bombers are now based at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam. B-2 bombers cost at least $1 BILLION each. Wikipedia says B-2s actually cost $2.1 BILLION each.

These planes also cost over $130,000 per hour to operate. https://www.businessinsider.com/air-force-plane-cost-per… B-2 bombers have flown non-stop round trips from Missouri, Louisiana, and Guam to bomb Pohakuloa, costing over $2 million per flight, which does not include the cost of the bombs, nor the damage to the land.


One of the 21 B-2 bombers built is named “Spirit of Hawaii.” Just imagine what the cost of that B-2 bomber could do to feed the hungry and house the homeless. What “Spirit of Hawaii” reflects your values?

Criticism on Military Pohakuloa Impact

Tuesday, August 14th, 2018

Proposed $210 Million Military Pohakuloa Building Project Criticized

      Many people submitted testimony opposing the Environmental Assessment (EA) for the $210 million building project at the 133,000-acre Military Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA) located in the center of Hawaii Island. Here are just a few excerpts of testimony submitted:

“I disagree with the EA’s finding of No Significant Impact in regards to… Cumulative Impacts…  All cumulative impacts of activities, live fire training, hazardous waste and UXO accumulation need to be considered as these facility upgrades will perpetuate these impacts on the environment… This action is fundamental to the longevity of PTA and therefore must be considered in the cumulative context of all actions and impacts of the military at Pohakuloa.” Joseph Kualii Lindsey Camara

De-Militarize and De-Occupy Hawaii Now!

After well over a century, the United States of America continues to ignore the fact that the Hawaiian Islands were never annexed by the United States of America. The Hawaiian Kingdom remains an independent neutral state under the belligerent military occupation of the United States of America…  United States military training in Hawaii, with its associated contaminations of Hawaii’s land, sea, and airspace with military toxins, are intentionally inflicted harms constituting premeditated war crimes.” Isaac Paka Harp, Vice-President, Hawaiian Patriotic League

It must be assumed that the proposed project has a high probability of spreading DU oxide particles (Depleted Uranium) not only within Pohakuloa Training Area, but also to neighboring or down-wind areas off-base, such as the Girl Scout Camp and Mauna Kea Park, where families in vehicles using the Saddle Road can be exposed to negative health impacts of being exposed to DU. It is unconscionable for such a construction project to be carried out without a prior Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to mitigate potential negative health impacts.” Carol Stevenson, DrPH (Public Health)

Ohana Ho`opakele, a native Hawaiian organization, feels that the Environmental Assessment (EA) is wholly inadequate for the following reasons:  There is no mention of the dangers of Depleted Uranium (DU) oxide at all… There has been no study done on the psychological impacts to native Hawaiians caused by destruction of their cultural, traditional and sacred sites… Ohana Ho`opakele requests that a full Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) be required of this project.” Ronald Fujiyoshi, Treasurer Ohana Ho`opakele

The EA turns a blind eye to the significant, long-term environmental impacts of military actions, statewide, nationwide, and worldwide, that will be enabled by (PTA base) cantonment improvement.” Cory Harden
