Below is a message from GMO free Hawaii I urge you to support.
I received word that the Mayor is leaning toward a veto and that lots of pressure is being put upon the six who voted for Bill 113 to change their vote. I would therefore urge phone calls and emails to all council members and the Mayor in support of Bill 113. If the Mayor does veto, six votes are needed to override. If just one person caves to pressure the bill will be defeated. However, now is a critical time for calls and emails to support Bill 113, especially to the Mayor 961-8211, Email: email@example.com
If he does not veto, the Bill becomes law. Mahalo.

The vote was 6-3to ban future GMO crops in Hawaii County and now goes to the Mayor for signing, allowing it to become law in 10 days without his signature or he can veto the bill. A veto override would require 6 votes by the council.
See the article by the Hawaii Tribune-Herald at the link below.
It’s been an uphill battle. The testimony has been impressive from a broad cross section of our community.
Pleass pass the word. Mahalo.

Killed J.F.K. IN 1963
It’s FIFTY YEARS later & still
On Nov. 22, 1963 President John F. Kennedy was shot and killed in Dallas, Texas. He was not killed by a lone assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald. Oswald was a patsy. Oswald was framed and quickly killed by Jack Ruby to silence him. The truth is unspeakable, even to this day. Kennedy was killed by multiple shooters with the killing shot coming, not from the school book depository building in the rear, but from the front, behind the picket fence on the grassy knoll. Recently, Dr. Robert N. McClelland, MD, the surgeon in the Parkland ER that treated Kennedy, stated frankly that the killing shot came from the front causing a massive exit wound in the right side of the President’s skull. The surgeon’s statement can be read below. http://www.post-gazette.com/stories/local/neighborhoods-city/surgeon-in-er-insists-2-gunmen-shot-jfk-708042/#ixzz2i5bmeGxY
View the Zapruder film of the assassination and you will see the fatal shot from the front, and Kennedy’s head going back and left. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E0tZFkVhN00
Why He Died & Why it Matters!
1. Kennedy had announced the withdrawal of the first 1000 “advisers” from Vietnam by the end of 1963 and all troops out by the end of 1965. The CIA and hard line military people did not agree;
2.Kennedy saw the CIA and some of the Joint Chiefs of staff trying to trap him into a full-on invasion of Cuba and a nuclear attack on the Soviet Union. He fired CIA director Allen Dulles;
3.Following the Cuban missile crisis Kennedy and Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev began talks to end nuclear testing and take concrete steps toward disarmament.
President Kennedy was seen as an “enemy of America” by some arms makers that thrived on the Cold War and by key elements in the Pentagon and CIA dedicated to “winning” that war at all costs, even the first use of nuclear weapons. In his final address to the nation, three days before JFK was inaugurated, President, and former General, Dwight David Eisenhower, warned of a growing danger within the U.S. by big business tied to a growing military establishment:
“In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.
“We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted.”
The U.S. National Security State has grown enormously since President Eisenhower spoke and President John F. Kennedy was murdered. It is now more dangerous than ever!
(Read the very important book –“JFK & the Unspeakable: why he died and why it matters” by James W. Douglass)
