OHA mulls delayed convention, parallel roll
West Hawaii Today ^ | May 30. 2014 | Nancy Cook Lauer

Officials at the Office of Hawaiian Affairs are asking for a six-to-nine-month postponement of a Native Hawaiian convention to determine self-governance, in order to educate the public and construct a parallel roll for those who refuse to sign onto a roll ordered by state government.

The OHA board of trustees, faced with 63 people wanting to testify, on Thursday postponed a decision until its June 5 meeting. The current plan is to hold an election of delegates this fall, followed by a spring convention.

Testifiers, many of whom flew to Oahu from Hawaii Island and other neighbor islands, were mixed on the best course of action. But most of those speaking in a daylong meeting frequently punctuated by audience outbursts and applause called for a return to a true Hawaiian kingdom, rather than seek federal recognition or a government-within-a-government status.

“There are some people, no matter what we do, they won’t accept it,” said Trustee Rowena Akana. “They want nationhood, period.”

“They want nationhood, period.”

regular Americans in Hawaii are facing a growing revolutionary movement among certain of 'the locals' out here . Thank goodness they do not have access to AK's and RPG's

"Members of the self-proclaimed Hawaiian Kingdom urged fellow Hawaiians to settle for nothing less than a return to the monarchy. "

They live in a dreamland where they see the last vestigial monarchies , who were not even related to the original self proclaimed monarch or his lineage ; as something to return to . This is the most regressive movement in America . Prior to westerners arrival the Hawaiian archipelago was one of the most draconian totalitarian societies found anywhere on earth . Is that what they want to return to ? Do they love their mothers, daughters , sisters and wives? Study the real history , not the fantasies . Or do they want to return to the utterly corrupt administrations of European imitation and the vast spending of the public wealth that typified the later monarchies ? I think the best answer is to offer , as a Hawaiian Nation, the entire island of Molokai and call it good .

Would this be a “Republican Form of Government”?

If not, then State of Hawaii would need to seceed first before doing this.

My guess is, keep the welfare checks coming and our discriminatory “Hawaiians only” federal money coming....and oh yea, tax free status for multi billion dollar KSBE, etc, etc. IMHO, most Hawaiians oppose this and will not join.

No way do I think secession should be an option. EJECTION is a much more peaceful and realistic option. Straight to hell with this Cargo Cult of a “state”, as well as Samoa, Guam, Midway, Connecticut, Massachusetts, southeastern Noo Yawk, Delaware......well, you get the idea!

Ever heard of the ‘unsinkable aircraft carrier in the Pacific ‘ ? That is what Hawaii is , in a vast sea filling up with Chinese and Russian ships , and NK missiliers trying to improve their aim and delivery ... Absolutely vital , absolutely critical to the defense of the United States . Worth fighting for , to put down any sort of ‘revolution’ mounted by the inbreds over here .
People that do not in any way agree with this alarming trend need to arm up , ASAP. Do not delay .

Armed up and ready here, brother(sister.....). To hell with the muzzies, russkies, etc. I’m far more worried about the totalitarians who operate within our own government enabled by “states” who gift us with people like Biden, et al.

Guam is at least as effective for the purposes you state, and lacks two Senators as well as Pelosi’s husband’s tuna plants (American Samoa). Compromising our founding principles by granting political power to collectivist societies to have military bases wherever is not wise.

How we are is not sustainable. Please face up to the fact that “we” are definitely not indivisible.

Let Hawaii secede peacefully. It will set a precedent for other states.

The US as currently configured and governed is not sustainable. The nation is spit between the socialist statists, who control the large population urban states, and the conservative believers in individual liberty who are slowly losing control of the heartland due to illegal immigration and migration from the failing urban states.

Dividing the nation today into two or more countries seems to be the only hope for the founding principles to survive. The socialist urban states will not change and their elites are determined to subjugate the people in flyover country. Breaking up the nation gives the southern and western states an opportunity to prosper under a republican form of government while the northeast, upper midwest, and west coast states continue to evolve into one or more progressive dictatorships.

The alternative is the extinction of liberty throughout the nation. Eight years of Hillary on top of eight years of Obama will fundamentally change the nation forever.

Yes, delay this until after the election. This will be Obama’s last achievement in his quest to destroy our country. All he has to do is to pay lip service to succession then do nothing about it when it comes. The Republicans will be forced to support colonialism in order to keep our 50th state.

Wasn't its takeover of questionable legality? Something about Dole and pineapple profits.
