Stop the Akaka Bill

The editors of the Star Advertiser to be complicit with government to push for more government intervention through the Akaka Bill which strips people of their property rights. Whether Hawaiian or American, we need less government not more.

 

You will have to log in to view the  latest propaganda article about the Akaka Bill.

An excerpt of their nonsense:

“According to his staff, Akaka realizes that better than anyone: What he wants above all is to leave a “legacy” bill he believes has the best chance of passing at some point. So the Hawaii delegation is right, despite those long odds, in its move to keep the worthy notion alive in a more realistically scaled-down form.

Akaka has decided to pare legislation down to a 14-page version, S. 675. The principal difference between this and previous iterations of the measure is the elimination of the section that defines how a Native Hawaiian roll would be created — the membership of the nation-within-a-nation political entity for Native Hawaiians.

The Akaka Bill is a tool that would STRIP Hawaiians and their legal heirs of their property rights.

GovernorAbercrombie and other Democrats voted for the Akaka Bill in the House on February 23, 2010

Fortunately Republicans shut it down. I hope they continue to do so.

The Akaka Bill would strip Hawaiians and their legal heirs  of their property rights which is problematic for non-Hawaiians: When the U.S. government does it to us Hawaiians… THEY WILL DO IT TO YOU TOO.

 

 

 

Akaka Bill

By , July 20, 2012 10:12 am

I received a comment from a reader about the Akaka Bill. Here it is:

“Many of us, who are on the fence about the AKAKA BILL have since had a serious dose of reality! Robin Danner has gone out of her to publically humiliate Native Hawaiians/Kanaka Maoli, referring to them as “dumb”, “lazy”, and making comments about her ability to call Senator Innouye at the drop of a hat to kick Native Hawaiians off the homesteads.

Even if you agree with her, as long as you do business on the homestead, she asserts that everything has to come through her and her entity. So lets recap here: if we go with status quo we’ll be full-fledged American Citizens with the right to free speech, freedom of religion, freedom to live where we want, freedom to work where we want, freedom to speak to whom we want, and are not at risk of being “disenrolled” from being Native Hawaiian/Kanaka Maoli. But if we support the AKAKA Bill, we will have all our rights as American citizens taken away as well as our identity.

Moreover, we’ll be forced to work under Robin Danner as an indentured servant. Lord oh mighty, can someone please sign me up to be a member of the Robin Danner’s tribe?

I can hear the plantation bells a ringing right now…..massa oh massa is it today we go out and pick cotton so we sew all your kin folk a beautiful outfit for the Sunday outing with ma and pa kettle? Oh please Massa Robin, Massa Robin, this little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine,….”

Akaka Bill: The Honolulu StarAdvertiser Editors Continue to Try to Push For the Akaka Bill

The Honolulu StarAdvertiser Editors Continue to Try to Push For the Akaka Bill. In their latest issue they post an article titled, “Time tight for Akaka Bill.”

An excerpt:

“There are enough votes in the U.S. Senate to pass by year’s end a bill to treat native Hawaiians like the nation’s other indigenous groups.

That’s according to Sen. Daniel Akaka‘s office and the Office of Hawaiian Affairs.”

Seen here: http://www.staradvertiser.com/news/20100812_Time_tight_for_Akaka_Bill.html

This epitomizes the Media Manipulation that ignores the will of the people when it comes to the Akaka Bill.

Hawaiians, Hawaiian Nationals, AND non-Hawaiians do NOT want the Akaka Bill.

Akaka Bill: Office of Hawaiian Affairs — Reposted

There’s more to beware from the Office Of Hawaiian Affairs. Hawai`i’s cultural sites that they’re supposed to maintain where the US Army trains. But instead of protect, it’s something else OHA neglects. Want the details of where OHA fails? Watch this video to see what OHA’s doing that’s got everyone stewing:

You can also read the Hawaii Independent’s article, “OHA ‘drops the ball’ in protecting cultural sites from Stryker brigade” here:

Independently contracted archaeologist Christopher Monahan, comments on the Army’s numerous shortcomings in its attempts at documenting cultural sites, which, if included on the National Register of Historic Places, offers them various protections from being disturbed.

Leon Siu wrote a piece about the Akaka Bill which recently appeared in the Hawai’i Reporter on August 3, 2010. Here is another excerpt:

“We, the people of Hawai`i, declare our opposition to the 2010 version of the Akaka bill, and strongly object to being excluded from this legislative process,” stated Leon Siu representing the Koani Foundation, part of a coalition of Native Hawaiian groups.

“We have long been told that open, public debates in matters that affect the citizenry are part of the US democratic process. But it has not been so with the Akaka bill.”

“We, the people of Hawai`i, insist the US Senate Indian Affairs Committee hold public hearings on S.1011 in Hawai`i as soon as possible. We demand to be heard.”

The only time public hearings were held in Hawai`i on the [Akaka] bill was ten years ago.

At that hearing, people turned out in record numbers to oppose the legislation.

Since then, the only hearings held on the Akaka bill were in Washington, DC in the dead of winter, 5,000 miles from Hawai`i, and no opposing testimony from Hawaiians or anyone else was allowed.

Akaka Bill: Hawaiians Demand Akaka Bill Hearings in Hawaii

Stop the Akaka Bill

Leon Siu’s piece about the Akaka Bill recently appeared in the Hawai’i Reporter on August 3, 2010.

An excerpt:

We are contacting you to make you aware of broad opposition to S.1011, the Native Hawaiian Government Reorganization Act of 2009, otherwise known as the Akaka bill, throughout Hawai`i and to ask for your vote AGAINST this bill.

Regardless of what Hawai`i Senators Akaka and Inouye have told your office, the people of Hawai`i, including Native Hawaiians, do not support the Akaka bill and are demanding public hearings be held in Hawai`i before any vote occurs in Congress.

Over the years, poll after poll has shown the citizens of Hawai`i, both native and non-native to be overwhelmingly opposed to this bill.
