NUCLEAR WAR & THE

PLANET EXTINCTION CRISIS

Two sides of the same global coin – Murder – Suicide!

National Security Advisor John Bolton announced the U.S. is deploying a carrier strike group and a bomber task force to the region near Iran. In a statement on Sunday night May 5th, Bolton said the move was intended to “send a clear and unmistakable message to the Iranian regime that any attacks on United States interests or on those of our allies will be met with unrelenting force.” In response to Bolton’s statement Iran is accusing the United States of “psychological warfare.” On May 6th, acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan said the deployment was made because of a “credible threat by Iranian regime forces” but he offered no details. Axios is reporting the threat is based on information passed on from Israel.

Watch for provocations to “justify” a US attack!

US National Security Advisor John Bolton, was a key architect in the fabrication of lies leading to the US war on Iraq, and he has been itching and writing about war on Iran for decades!

Public Urged to Participate on Proposed Maunakea Rules

Public Urged to Participate on Proposed Maunakea Rules

April 28, 2019, 10:47 AM HST (Updated April 28, 2019, 10:47 AM)

The University of Hawaiʻi invites the public to provide feedback on the latest draft of the proposed administrative rules to govern public and commercial activities on UH-managed lands on Maunakea [Chapter 20-26, Hawaiʻi Administrative Rules]. The administrative rules are an essential resource management tool for public and commercial activities on UH-managed lands on Maunakea.

Public urged to participate in next round of hearings on proposed Maunakea rules. PC: University of Hawai‘i.

To learn more about how to obtain a copy of the rules and how to submit comments, review the official 30-day public notice. The notice provides several methods to allow interested persons the opportunity to submit data, views or arguments, orally or in writing, on the current draft by mail, online or at four public hearings on three islands:

  • Monday, June 3, 2019, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Mānoa Elementary School, 3155 Mānoa Road, Honolulu
  • Tuesday, June 4, 2019, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Waiākea Elementary School, 180 W. Puainako St., Hilo
  • Wednesday, June 5, 2019, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Waikoloa Elementary and Middle School, 68-1730 Hoʻoko St., Waikoloa
  • Friday, June 7, 2019, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Pōmaikaʻi Elementary School, 4650 S. Kamehameha Ave., Kahului

During this second formal hearing process, submissions will be received from Sunday, April 28, 2019, through Friday, June 7, 2019 (the last noticed public hearing). All oral and timely submitted written submissions related to the draft rules will be considered.

The current draft of the rules can be found on the Proposed changes to Administrative Rules website (select “proposed”)

This second round of public hearings is the latest step in the development of the rules. Following initial public outreach and consultations, the first round of four public hearings was held in September 2018 on Hawaiʻi Island, Maui and Oʻahu.

A revised draft was prepared based on the comments and concerns received during those public hearings. That revised draft was then shared with stakeholder groups and the public during a three-month, informal outreach process that started in January 2019. The current draft of the rules includes revisions based on comments received during this informal outreach process. On April 18, 2019, the UH Board of Regents approved having a second round of public hearings on this version.

The university has received hundreds of written and oral comments and suggestions during the formal and informal processes to date, and this input significantly shaped the latest draft. The public is strongly encouraged to continue to participate in the process.

Glamorizing Violence

Glamorizing Violence

The Military Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA), located in the center of Hawaii Island recently hosted both a “Champions of Pohakuloa” breakfast and live-fire tour (photo below) and “Experience Pohakuloa Day” for around 600 — school children, parents, and community members, with live music, educational displays and tours.  See Pohakuloa Training Area Facebook for photos.

      Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA) is a 133,000-acre live-fire military base contaminated with Depleted Uranium (DU) radiation, lead, and a wide range of military toxins. More than 14 million live rounds are fired annually at PTA by all branches of the US military. The base has been bombed for more than 75 years. Continuing to use high explosives in areas known to be contaminated with Depleted Uranium radiation spreads the contamination.  It gets airborne and blows in the wind.

      The inhalation of Depleted Uranium (DU) oxide dust particles are “the most deadly form of radiation.” This is according to Hawaii resident, Dr. Lorrin Pang, MD, listed in the Who’s Who Best Doctors, and retired from 24 years in the Army Medical Corps. (See 3 min Youtube video Pohakuloa DU Oxides and Birth Defects )

      Hawaii today, with more than 100 US military installations, is the Indo-Pacific Command Center and training ground for nuclear war.  B-2 strategic nuclear bombers, at a cost of more than $2 billion each, (image below) have been deployed at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam.  B-2 bombers have also flown non stop from Louisiana, Missouri and Guam to practice bomb Pohakuloa. A B-2 bomber has been named “Spirit of Hawaii.”  How disgraceful is that?  Aloha is the Spirit of Hawaii not a nuclear bomber!

      Since 2001 the U.S. has spent $32 million dollars every hour of every day on war. Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter recently said the U.S. is “the most warlike nation in the history of the world.” A nuclear war today could kill billions. The chances of nuclear war are now “higher than they’ve been in generations” according to United Nations Security Council disarmament chief Izumi Nakamitsu http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/51461.htm

Wage Peace!  Stop Bombing Hawaii & Training for Nuclear War!

  1. Mourn all victims of violence. 2. Reject war as a solution. 3. Defend civil liberties.
    4. Oppose all discrimination, anti-Islamic, anti-Semitic, anti-Hawaiian, etc.
    5. Seek peace through peaceful means and work for justice in Hawai`i and around the world.
