  Military drones train at the 133,000-acre Pohakuloa Training Center in the center of Hawaii island and other sites in Hawaii

     The Obama administration has released a previously secret 18-page policy guidance document [President Policy Guidance, or PPG] that lays out how potential drone targets may be chosen and approved and the President’s role in the decision-making process… The release comes as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit by the American Civil Liberties Union

     If the target is a US citizen or someone living in the US, or if there is not unanimous agreement among the President’s key national security officials regarding the nomination of the target, it will be submitted to the President for a decision. However, the head of the nominating agency themselves can approve lethal action against a proposed individual if all of the major national security officials unanimously agree it should be undertaken, but the President has to be apprised of the decision.

     Read the full article here Newly released American drone policy explains how US citizens, other targets can be chosen

      They make it sound like you are being nominated for an Oscar or Grammy award, but the reality is that the president and/or the head of the Killer Drone nominating agency and other national security bureaucrats are acting as Judge, Jury, and Executioners. What has happened to due process of law?

More Drone Killings and More War are NOT the Solution to Ending Terrorism.

Drone Killings and War are Terrorism! Why Do Americans Hate Beheadings But Love Drone Killings?

End U.S. military interventions for global control of resources!

Grim Reaper attends Democratic Party Grand Rally

Saturday, August 13th, 2016

Press Release August 13, 2016

RE:  Democratic Party Security tries to hide dissent at Hilo Grand Rally.  No candidate or official stood up to protect the right of dissent.  (Photos below)

further contact: Jim Albertini Malu ‘Aina Center For Non-violent Education & Action P.O. Box 489 Ola’a (Kurtistown) Hawai’i 96760 Phone 808-966-7622 Email ja@malu-aina.org www.malu-aina.org

     The Grim Reaper made a special appearance at the Hilo Grand Rally of the Democratic Party Friday evening August 12, 2016, according to Jim Albertini of Malu ‘Aina.  Albertini said : “on the Grim Reaper’s front side was a sign that read “TMT – YES!  $ Over Sacred”  On his back was a sign that read “I support bombing Hawaii.” A sign at his feet read “Executive Privilege.” Upon reaching the makai side of the stage area, the Grim Reaper was approached by several Democratic Party security personnel in distinctive security shirts who told him and two other people accompanying him that they had to leave.  The Grim Reaper made it clear he had no intention to disrupt the rally nor attempt to stand on the stage.  His intent was simply to stand on the side and present a message of peaceful dissent on the TMT issue and Pohakuloa.   For background — The sign held by the Grim Reaper “TMT – YES! $ Over Sacred” was meant to challenge people who put concerns of money before respecting the deeply held Hawaiian belief that Mauna Kea is sacred.  The Grim Reaper sign “I support Bombing Hawaii” was meant to challenge the politicians who support bombing at Pohakuloa which is poisoning/destroying the ‘aina in order to train troops for foreign interventions resulting in what the CIA calls  “blowback” which is now called terrorism.  The “Executive Privilege” sign was reference to the State Attorney General filing a motion in the Mauna Kea contested case proceedings to keep Governor Ige, DLNR Board Chair Suzanne Case and BLNR member Stanley Roerhig from testifying in the proceedings.  
When the three refused to leave and asserted their democratic right to peaceful dissent, the security people stood in front of them to block their signs.  When The Reaper and others moved to an open area, the security people again moved to stand in front of them and block their signs.  Clearly the security people were acting like thugs to intimidate and hide the message of dissent.  It should have been very clear to all the candidates and people present what was going on — an attempt by Democratic Party security at an open public rally to block messages of dissent from being seen by others.  Albertini said, it was sad that NO candidate or Democratic Party official stood up to intervene and stop the security personnel attempting to block and hide the peaceful dissent taking place.  They all were there, from Governor David Ige, former Governor John Waihee, Senator Brian Schatz, Mayoral candidates, etc. etc.”
Albertini said, “How public officials respond to dissent tell us who they really are.”  It reminds me of the words of the late anti-war priest, Philip Berrigan who said: “The poor tell us who we are.  The prophets tell us who we could be.  So we hide the poor, and kill the prophets.”

NO MORE WAR!

Save humanity and all life from destruction!

mushroom cloud leaflet     War, especially nuclear war, and human made climate disaster, are the greatest threats facing our world today. The U.S. has a permanent war economy that requires endless enemies and endless wars.

The U.S. Military is the world’s greatest polluter. It is the single largest consumer of oil and the largest emitter of of CO2 greenhouse gases. It has caused extensive radioactive and chemical contamination of the planet’s air, water, and soil, including the Hawaiian Islands. Leaking massive underground fuel tanks threaten fresh water sources on the Island of Oahu. Pearl Harbor, once a rich fish breeding area is now a military toxic super fund site. Chemical, biological and radiation weapons have been test fired on several island. The 133,000-acre Pohakuloa Training Area in the center of Hawaii island is contaminated with a wide rage of military toxins, including Depleted Uranium (DU) radiation. Yet this base continues to be used as a live-fire bombing range resulting in the spread of this toxic pollution, endangering the lives of troops, residents and visitors alike.

The U.S. is currently waging war in Syria, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, Yemen, and elsewhere. The enemy is ISIS but the U.S. is the daddy of ISIS. It helped create ISIS. Now the U.S. is surrounding Russia and China with military bases resulting in increasing tension and the risk of nuclear war by accident or design. Hundreds of nuclear weapons are being pointed at each other and the weapons are on hair-trigger alert. Meanwhile President Obama has authorized the spending of $1 Trillion dollars over the next 30 years to modernize the U.S. nuclear arsenal which is already capable of destroying the world many times over. Surely we can find a better use of such funds to heal our planet, rather than cause more death and destruction. Let us unite to stop this madness and put an end to war.  http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article45140.htm  http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-07-19/chinese-military-vice-chairman-urges-troops-get-ready-combat-xinhua  http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article45187.htm

August 6th and 9th are days to commemorate the U.S. atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945 that killed hundreds of thousands of civilians. It is a time to reflect and rededicate our lives to building a just and peaceful world for future generations.

Remember Hiroshima & Nagasaki. Never Again!
