The United States and NATO Are Preparing for a Major War With Russia

The United States and NATO Are Preparing for a Major War With Russia

In my life time, this is the most serious nuclear war possibility since the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis that came within a hair of global nuclear disaster.


Women’s Boat to Gaza News



Zaytouna-Oliva taken in International Waters
Whereabouts of Participants Unknown

This afternoon, the Women’s Boat to Gaza was making good progress to the shores and the women were emotional about meeting all the people in Gaza who were waiting for them. Some of the Palestinians had spent the night at the beach to greet them.
At 9:58 (EST) we lost total contact with the Zaytouna-Oliva. The US embassy confirmed that the boat was intercepted. We do not know where our friends are.
It is important to know that this happened in international waters and it is not only illegal but sets a bad precedent in giving a greenlight for other nations to attack civilian ships in international waters. The Zaytouna-Oliva was carrying no material aid. This was by design because Israel, as a premise for their attacks, would claim that weapons and contraband were on board. The owner of Zaytouna-Oliva is Israeli.
Ann Wright is a decorated former US diplomat. On board with her were three parliamentarians, an Olympic athlete and Nobel Peace Laureate, Mairead Maguire. They were committed to nonviolence as much as they were committed to breaking the blockade.

Ann has a message for you

Ann deserves our support
Ann has traveled thousands of miles and made a great sacrifice for human rights.  We can help her with a few small efforts:

Contact President Barack Obama    (202) 456-1111
Contact Secretary John Kerry  or
                                                          (202) 647-4000

Unlike other nations that have women on the boat, we Americans provide military equipment to Israel that may very well have been used against Ann and our international friends.  Please ask Secretary Kerry and President Obama to demand Israel immediately release the women and that they do an investigation on the incident as there are a number of troubling circumstances that are against US and international law. And don’t forget to say that the blockade on Gaza must end.

In solidarity!

Obama Should Pardon Whistleblowers


President Barrack Obama came into office with the promise of transparency, but he has prosecuted more whistleblowers than any president before him. Instead of demonizing these whistleblowers, he should pardon them for exposing secret government policies, actions, and crimes citizens have a right to know.

Their names are Stephen Kim, Jeffrey Sterling, John Kiriakou, Thomas Drake, Chelsea Manning, Edward Snowden, Julian Assange, etc. Most are government officials who talked with journalists and were charged under the Espionage Act for disclosures of information that were far less consequential than the classified emails that Hillary Clinton stored on her server at home or the top-secret war diaries that David Petraeus shared with his biographer and girlfriend. Petraeus, a former general and CIA director, got a fine for his transgressions. Clinton got a presidential nomination. Many of the whistleblowers have been sent to jail or are in exile.  (For more info on these whistleblowers see

These whistleblowers are good people who helped, not harmed, the cause of democracy by exposing government wrongdoing. It’s time that fairness for all becomes a hallmark of government and applied equally to whistleblowers. (See the movie SNOWDEN by Oliver Stone in theaters now.)

Exposing Government Crime is a Public Service!

  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.

State attempting to Control Hawaiian religious/spiritual practice

Tuesday, Oct. 4th from 10-12 Office of Mauna Kea Management (OMKM) meeting at Institute for Astronomy 640 North Aohoku St. off Komohana just above Imiloa Astronomy.

This OMKM meeting is about several things but key are proposed new rules/guidelines about cultural features, offerings, building of ahu, etc.  It is using “CULTURE” to control traditional religious practice.  It appears to me they are using the word “culture” to make rules and regulations that they couldn’t get away with if they used the term “religious or spiritual.”  Government interfering in religious practice would be ruled unconstitutional.

Please pass the word and encourage people to attend.  Mahalo.
