Aloha from the Hawaiian Kingdom President Donald J. Trump,
I am Princess Ku’uleialoha of the Hawaiian Islands, of the hereditary monarchial government of the temporarily occupied Hawaiian Kingdom. I am Her Royal Highness The Princess of the Hawaiian Islands, a hereditary public official of the de jure government, and the highest-ranking royal person in the Kingdom, please find my credentials as enclosure 1. This message is an urgent legal notice requesting prompt action and good faith performance for a pacific settlement of the complaints herein, according to our mutual bilateral Treaties, the Constitution of the United States, the Rule of Law, and Customary International Law.
And this is a formal request to reaffirm our Treaty commitments to each other for perpetual peace and friendship and respect for the obligations arising from our Treaties. I come to you as legal BFFs (best friends forever) and ask for your honorable response. Articles of Arrangement, 1826, "Article 1. The peace and friendship subsisting between the United States, and their Majesties, the Queen Regent, and Kauikeaouli, King of the Sandwich Islands, and their subjects and people, are hereby confirmed, and declared to be perpetual," https://www.loc.gov/law/help/us-treaties/bevans/b-hawaii-ust000008-0861.pdf
I am an "heir and successor" with perfect rights and full powers to enforce treaties with the United States and countries worldwide. Treaties that are perpetual and binding to "heirs and successors" of the signatory monarchs. Treaty of Friendship, Commerce and Navigation, December 20, 1849, "Article 1. There shall be perpetual peace and amity, between the United States of America, and the King of the Hawaiian Islands, His Heirs and Successors" https://www.loc.gov/law/help/us-treaties/bevans/b-hawaii-ust000008-0864.pdf
My Great6 Grandfather King Kamehameha I founded the hereditary Hawaiian Kingdom; I am a close relative and heir to every monarch. As the highest-ranking royal person, I am the de jure returning Sovereign. My credentials as a Princess and heir and successor to the hereditary Hawaiian Kingdom is my genealogy, prepared by the State of Hawaii Department of Hawaiian Home Lands. Enclosed, please find my genealogy, birth certificates, and government records from me to King Kamehameha I.
I have complaints about war crimes and illegal administrations of the belligerent occupation of the Hawaiian Kingdom by the United States of America. Complaints that are continuous since 1893, and amount to countless grave breaches and gross violations of treaties, customary international laws, the rule of law, and human rights, including the right not to be a victim of genocide, not to be conscripted into the USA's wars, unlawful annexation, forced citizenship and allegiance, deprivation of sovereign nationality and identity and self-determination, and so much more than can fit here. Hawai’i is not a legally formed state of the USA, it is a sovereign kingdom under war by the USA in a prolonged belligerent military occupation since 1893. A formal administrative investigation and a tribunal are appropriate, legally required, and hereby requested of you.
As a “Protected Person” and as a Princess of this hereditary monarchy, I am entitled to respect for my family rights and honor, and recognition of my status, rank, and title, and to a salary paid from public revenues as a de jure "public official." I am entitled to the economic, social, and cultural rights thereof, including the right to reside in the monarch's private residence, 'Iolani Palace, and I claim and demand all these rights. By the 4th Geneva Convention Article 27 and the USA's Law of War, I am entitled to your recognition of my family right to my royal title and official public rank. My status may not be altered, and I am entitled to a salary as the only de jure public official of the Kingdom since Queen Lili’uokalani in 1917. I hereby request a salary appropriate to my rank forthwith. https://ihl-databases.icrc.org/ihl/INTRO/380
Occupied Territory. The population of an occupied territory, like other protected persons under the GC, are entitled, in all circumstances, to respect for their persons, their honor, their family rights, their religious convictions and practices, and their manners and customs (Law of War Manual 2016 (LOWM), US Department of Defense, page 775).
11.21.1 Continued Service of Judges and Other Public Officials. The Occupying Power may not alter the status of public officials or judges in the occupied territories (LOWM, page 823).
11.21.3 Salaries of Public Officials. The salaries of civil officials of the hostile government who remain in the occupied territory and continue the work of their offices, especially those who can properly continue it under the circumstances arising out of the war – such as judges, administrative or police officers, and officers of city or communal governments – are paid from the public revenues of the occupied territory, until the military government has reason wholly or partially to dispense with their services, (LOWM, page 824).
The USA and you, Mr. President, are required by many laws to have legal relations with the occupied nation's temporarily ousted sovereign authority and public officials like me. However, the USA and you have not done so since the death of Queen Lili'uokalani in 1917. You are required to have legal relations with the temporarily ousted sovereign authority to allow for reconciliation and complaints, to lawfully administer the belligerent occupation, for pacific settlement of disputes, to allow for the rights of the Sovereign, to make peace, and to provide for an end to a war legally defined as "temporary" that has been excessively and unlawfully prolonged for 127 years.
As the highest-ranking royal person, I am the de jure temporarily ousted sovereign authority and the Head of State of the Hawaiian Kingdom's hereditary monarchial government. I claim the Crown and Throne of the Hawaiian Islands by hereditary and legal rights. There is no current recognized “sovereign authority" nor any public officials of the Hawaiian Kingdom, and there has been none since the death of Queen Lili'uokalani. As such, you have legal duties to me, and I ask that you properly honor and fulfill your obligations. Including your fiduciary duty as a Protective Power over me as a Head of State within your protection by providing me with a Secret Service attachment for my safety. This Notice puts me, my family, and my property at risk of retaliation, harassment, and assassination. King Kalākaua and Crown Princess Ka’iulani were medically murdered by the insurgents (The Last Illness and Death of Hawai‘i’s King Kalākaua: A New Historical/Clinical Perspective) https://evols.library.manoa.hawaii.edu/bitstream/10524/56606/1/05_49mcdermott.etal.pdf
United States Code 18 U.S. Code § 3056. Powers, authorities, and duties of United States Secret Service: (a) Under the direction of the Secretary of Homeland Security, the United States Secret Service is authorized to protect the following persons: (5) Visiting heads of foreign states or foreign governments.
This is an exceptionally prolonged, illegally administered occupation of 127 years, accruing an exhaustive amount to say and war crimes to complain against and hundreds of thousands of pages of documents. I have compiled some of the documents and sources of law, including my citations, for your convenience, along with a copy of this letter at www.princesskuuleialoha.com/NoticeTrump
The complete genocide of full-blooded Hawaiians is imminent, there are less than a mere 8,000 survivors estimated. We have been ignored for too long, and the law has been ignored for too long as well. I am asking you, Mr. President, to make this right by honoring the Constitution you swore to uphold and for the love of your fellow humans. I am asking you, President Donald J. Trump, to make history. To solidify yourself as the greatest President in USA history by doing the right thing and ending this farce and war against us and make history-setting peace with the Princess of Hawai’i.
Allowing the USA to commit the gravest and grossest war crimes with impunity and to commit a persistence of human rights violations for over 127 years is a threat to the peace of the entire world. It is a threat to world peace and to every other "peaceful and friendly" nation on Earth. It is a hypocrisy that undermines the people's confidence in the USA's government and is anathema to its founding principles. It is time to restore the rule of law governing the conduct of nations and assure accountability and justice and redress for the Hawaiian victims of war crimes and genocide. "Without justice, there can be no peace," Martin Luther King, Jr.
I assert my claims and legal rights. As a princess, and an heir and successor, and as the sovereign authority of my family's monarchy, I have perfect rights and full powers to enforce perpetual treaties and your friendship legally in court. To ignore me and my rights is to continue to ignore a nation and a race of people and the law; ignoring me is sanctioning our genocide and participating in the denial of our inherent human rights. And it is grounds for lawsuit. I hope that we all would rather not go there but can instead resolve things amicably between us. But, as I am sure you can understand, this cause is urgent, and I will not falter in my pursuit of justice. If you give me no response, I must proceed with court action and as much media and public attention as I can gather in our defense. I pray for your gracious and swift response.
The time has come to hear the Hawaiian Kingdom's legal voice and take responsibility for over a century of war crimes.
As a royal Princess of a hereditary monarchy, I have the right to my family honor and title and official public position and voice for the Protected People of the temporarily occupied Hawaiian Kingdom. I am entitled to the economic, social, and cultural rights thereof, and I claim and demand all these rights. To deny me these rights, to ignore me and this message constitutes new war crimes. To acknowledge what ancestors and the law have bestowed is an affirmation of your promise to uphold the Constitution, to work out disagreements peacefully, to try for a world of peace and justice and freedom for all. “It's always good to be underestimated” President Donald J. Trump.
I ask that you righteously honor your oath to the Constitution and the perpetual treaties of friendship and peace between the United States and the Hawaiian Kingdom.
Article VI, Clause 2. This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding, The Constitution of the United States, 1787.
I am asking you for your aloha for Hawaiians. Aloha is many things; a few are love, mercy, compassion, and regards. I am asking you to stand for us now. "Recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world," Universal Declaration of Human Rights. "If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor," Desmond Tutu. Are you on the side of the oppressor or justice and the law? Please stand for Hawaiians now. We need fulfillment of your oath promising friendship.
I request a formal administrative fact-finding mission to investigate the implications of the United States of America’s settlements on the Hawaiian people's civil, political, economic, social, and cultural rights since the illegal overthrow of the monarchy to the present.
I request an interim measure of protection from ongoing war crimes and a neutral party to replace the USA as the administrator of the belligerent military occupation due to innumerable persistent systematic war crimes, and countless complaints and requests for compliance with International Law and USA Law, and denial of recourse. All the Protected Persons of the Hawaiian Kingdom do not now, nor have ever benefited from the activities of the USA as Protecting Power and are in fact, barely surviving your systematic genocide of us, a “peaceful and friendly people,” as according to Convention (IV) relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War (GC), Geneva, 1949, https://ihl-databases.icrc.org/ihl/INTRO/380
SUBSTITUTES FOR PROTECTING POWERS ARTICLE 11. When persons protected by the present Convention do not benefit or cease to benefit, no matter for what reason, by the activities of a Protecting Power or of an organization provided for in the first paragraph above, the Detaining Power shall request a neutral State, or such an organization, to undertake the functions performed under the present Convention by a Protecting Power designated by the Parties to a conflict, 4th Geneva Convention. https://www.un.org/en/genocideprevention/documents/atrocity-crimes/Doc.33_GC-IV-EN.pdf
…an "act of war, committed with the participation of a diplomatic representative of the United States and without authority of Congress", and acknowledged that by such acts the government of a peaceful and friendly people was overthrown; Senate Joint Resolution 19 - A joint resolution to acknowledge the 100th anniversary of the January 17, 1893 overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii, and to offer an apology to Native Hawaiians on behalf of the United States for the overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii (Apology Resolution), https://www.congress.gov/bill/103rd-congress/senate-joint-resolution/19
The facts of the illegal overthrow and occupation are a matter of USA Public Law and historical records. Mr. President, it is your duty to be knowledgeable about the entire issue so that you can be compliant with the law and your oath of office, including Apology Resolution.
The "State of Hawaii" was fraudulently formed against International Laws and USA Laws; it is thus void, and we were unlawfully annexed by Congress, as I am sure you know… so please let us skip games and pretenses otherwise and get real with each other. “The Bible tells us, “how good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity” and “We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, but always pursue solidarity,” President Donald J. Trump, Inaugural Address, January 20, 2017. There has never been a Treaty of Annexation nor one of Peace signed by the lawful, de jure government of the Hawaiian Kingdom. But you can change that and solidify yourself in world history.
11.4 LEGAL POSITION OF THE OCCUPYING POWER Military occupation of enemy territory involves a complicated, trilateral set of legal relations between the Occupying Power, the temporarily ousted sovereign authority, and the inhabitants of occupied territory. The fact of occupation gives the Occupying Power the right to govern enemy territory temporarily, but does not transfer sovereignty over occupied territory to the Occupying Power.
COMMENTARY OF 1958 ARTICLE 47 -- INVIOLABILITY OF RIGHTS (1) As long as hostilities continue the Occupying Power cannot therefore annex the occupied territory, even if it occupies the whole of the territory concerned. A decision on that point can only be reached in the peace treaty (GC).
11.3.1 End of Occupation. … However, an Occupying Power is not permitted, under the law of belligerent occupation, to annex occupied territory, (LOWM, page 770).
"I have come to understand that the lawful political status of the Hawaiian Islands is that of a sovereign nation-state in continuity; but a nation-state that is under a strange form of occupation by the United States resulting from an illegal military occupation and a fraudulent annexation. As such, international laws (the Hague and Geneva Conventions) require that governance and legal matters within the occupied territory of the Hawaiian Islands must be administered by the application of the laws of the occupied state (in this case, the Hawaiian Kingdom), not the domestic laws of the occupier (the United States)." (Memorandum from the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, Dr. Alfred M. deZayas, 2018). https://hawaiiankingdom.org/pdf/Dr_deZayas_Memo_2_25_2018.pdf
In 2016 an acknowledgment was made through the Department of the Interior, Office of the Secretary, that “a working relationship between government officials is absent,” in 43 CFR Part 50 Procedures for Reestablishing a Formal Government-to-Government Relationship With the Native Hawaiian Community (Procedures). I have too many complaints about Procedures to fit in this letter; it is illegal in every way, gravely violating the Constitution and International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights. Procedures require that the “Native Hawaiian community decide what form of government to adopt” and draft a “governing document.” However, the only choice of what kind of government to adopt allowed is their one prescribed form, “That form of government in which the sovereign power resides in and is exercised by the whole body of free citizens; as distinguished from a monarchy, aristocracy, or oligarchy. What is DEMOCRACY?” https://thelawdictionary.org/democracy/
People may not form a new government nor ratify a new “governing document,” that would be treason. “1. Treason is hereby defined to be any plotting or attempt to dethrone or destroy the King, or the levying of war against the King’s government, or the adhering to the enemies thereof,” Penal Code of the Hawaiian Islands. And providing Procedures as a means to commit treason is also treason, and is an act of multiple war crimes including violation of Article 43 of the Hauge Convention (IV) respecting the Laws and Customs of War on Land 1907, to respect the laws in force in the occupied nation, and LOWM 11.4.2 on the inability of the occupying power to alter institutions of government permanently or change the constitution of a country. Trying to make the people change the constitution themselves, but only into the one prescribed form of a democracy, does not allow them a choice, so it is yet another war crime of denial of self-determination. It is just another blatant way to try to keep evading the law. None can escape the law forever. https://www.hawaiiankingdom.org/penalcode/pdf/Penal_Code.pdf
Procedures violate the rights of the existing hereditary Sovereign. The Hawaiian Islands is a hereditary monarchy with a voluntary constitution, temporarily suspended under the law, not abolished. A monarchy is a “government in which the supreme power is vested in a single person,” https://thelawdictionary.org/monarchy/. The only legal representative of the de jure monarchial government of the Hawaiian Islands is “a single person,” the Monarch.
The 1864 Constitution of the Hawaiian Islands allows for elections only for the House of Representatives, the larger part of the unicameral Legislative Assembly. The smaller part is the House of Nobles, and the Monarch appoints nobles. Hawaiian Kingdom laws do not allow for an election by the whole public body of subjects for any other office nor for the hereditary position of Monarch/Sovereign, unlike the requirements of Procedures, which mandate that the Sovereign and every government official be voted in by citizens. “ARTICLE 21. The Government of this Kingdom is that of a Constitutional Monarchy, under His Majesty Kamehameha V., His Heirs and Successors,” (Constitution of the Hawaiian Islands, 1864). And from Queen Lili’uokalani, “Let it be repeated: the promulgation of a new constitution, adapted to the needs of the times and the demands of the people, has been an indisputable prerogative of the Hawaiian monarchy." (Both quotes are from The Hawaiian Kingdom, Volume II, 1854-1874, Twenty Critical Years by Ralph S. Kuykendall, 1953) http://www.ulukau.org/elib/collect/kingdom2/index/assoc/D0.dir/doc7.pdf
11.4.2 Limitations on the Power of the Occupying Power Stemming From Its Lack of Sovereignty Over Occupied Territory. Belligerent occupation in a foreign war, being based upon the possession of enemy territory, necessarily implies that the sovereignty of the occupied territory is not vested in the Occupying Power. 96 Occupation is essentially provisional. 97 Because sovereignty is not vested in the Occupying Power, the fact of military occupation does not authorize the Occupying Power to take certain actions. For example, the Occupying Power is not authorized by the fact of belligerent occupation to annex occupied territory or to create a new State. 98 In addition, the Occupying Power may not compel the inhabitants of occupied territory to become its nationals or otherwise to swear allegiance to it. 99 Similarly, in view of the provisional nature of belligerent occupation, the authority of the Occupying Power under occupation law has been interpreted as being subject to limitations on the ability of the Occupying Power to alter institutions of government permanently or change the constitution of a country.100 (LOWM, page 772).
Procedures illegally define “Native Hawaiians,” in fact, every definition by Congress of “Native Hawaiians” violates the law and also fails to distinguish between Hawaiian as a race and Hawaiian as a nationality, omitting and ignoring naturalized Hawaiian subjects and their descendants. Hawaiians are not “indigenous,” we are “Aboriginal Hawaiian” or Kanaka Maoli, a race and a nationality. Naturalized subjects are Kanaka Hawai’i or “Native Hawaiian,” a nationality only, and also a general term for all the subjects of the Hawaiian Kingdom. Article 3 of the Will of King Lunalilo, 1871, provides “for the use and accommodation of poor, destitute and infirm people of Hawaiian (aboriginal) blood or extraction, giving preference to old people.” And from the Compiled Laws of the Hawaiian Kingdom 1884, “§432. Every foreigner so naturalized, shall be deemed to all intents and purposes a native of the Hawaiian Islands” http://punawaiola.org/es6/index.html?path=/Collections/Statutes/Statutes1884001.pdf
And Procedures violates the US Constitution by exceeding Congress’s Constitutional authority, because only the President, as Head of State, has sovereign power over foreign affairs and acquiring foreign land. Congress has authority only over domestic matters, not “government-to-government” relations. Under Procedures, Congress again illegally vests themselves with the power to acquire foreign land via autocratic sovereignty over the Hawaiian Kingdom, a Tyranny, over a so-called “Native Hawaiian Governing Entity.” Page 45, “§50.44 How will the formal government-to government relationship between the United States Government and the Native Hawaiian Governing Entity be implemented? (b) The Native Hawaiian Governing Entity will be subject to the plenary authority of Congress.” From thelawdictionary.com, “What is PLENARY? Full; entire; complete; unabridged. What is TYRANNY? Arbitrary or despotic government; the severe and autocratic exercise of sovereign power, either vested constitutionally in one ruler, or usurped by him by breaking down the division and distribution of governmental powers.”
“I have no patience for injustice, no tolerance for government incompetence, no sympathy for leaders who fail their citizens,” President Donald J. Trump, 2016 RNC.
"Can the plunder be snatched from the mighty, or the captives of a tyrant be delivered? Indeed, this is what the LORD says: "Even the captives of the mighty will be taken away, and the plunder of the tyrant will be retrieved; I will contend with those who contend with you, and I will save your children" (Isaiah 49:24).
Congress has been tyrannically violating jus cogens, exceeding its Constitutional authority, and abusing its power since the inception of this dispute, passing over 150 fraudulent acts, including annexation and statehood acts. The following is excerpted from Legal Issues Raised by Proposed Presidential Proclamation To Extend the Territorial Sea, Memorandum Opinion for the Legal Adviser, Department of State, October 4, 1988, by Douglas W. Kmiec, Acting Assistant Attorney General, Office of Legal Counsel, page 252. https://www.justice.gov/olc/opinion/legal-issues-raised-proposed-presidential-proclamation-extend-territorial-sea
"The constitutionality of the annexation of Hawaii, by a simple legislative act, was strenuously contested at the time both in Congress and by the press. The right to annex by treaty was not denied, but it was denied that this might be done by a simple legislative act.... Only by means of treaties, it was asserted, can the relations between States be governed, for a legislative act is necessarily without extraterritorial force—confined in its operation to the territory of the State by whose legislature it is enacted. Westel Woodbury Willoughby, The Constitutional Law of the United States § 239, at 427 (2d ed. 1929). "
"It is therefore unclear which constitutional power Congress exercised when it acquired Hawaii by joint resolution. Accordingly, it is doubtful that the acquisition of Hawaii can serve as an appropriate precedent for a congressional assertion of sovereignty over an extended territorial sea.31 "
"31 Cong. Rec 5975 (1898). He thus characterized the effort to annex Hawaii by joint resolution after the defeat of the treaty as 'a deliberate attempt to do unlawfully that which cannot be lawfully done.'"
"There is a serious question whether Congress has the authority either to assert jurisdiction over an expanded territorial sea for purposes of international law or to assert the United States’s sovereignty over it. "
"We believe that the only clear congressional power to acquire territory derives from the constitutional power of Congress to admit new states into the union. "
And from attorney Mr. Stephen Laudig in Notice for "War Crimes of Unlawful and Wanton Appropriation of Property" from Hawaii County Council Member Ms. Jen Ruggles, http://freedomforhawaii.com/JenRuggles2018.pdf
"Congressional legislation has no extraterritorial effect. See, The Apollon, 22 U.S. 362, 370 (1824) and United States v. Curtiss Wright Export Corp., 299 U.S. 304, 318 (1936),” and “If it was “unclear which constitutional power Congress exercised when it acquired Hawaii by joint resolution” in 1898, it would be equally unclear as to how the Congress could enact a statute establishing the Territory of Hawai‘i in 1900 (31 Stat. 141), and the State of Hawai‘i in 1959 (73 Stat. 4) within the territory of a foreign State. "
"The law with regard to which branch of government recognizes foreign States or governments is clearly stated by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in 1897. The executive branch is the sole mouthpiece of the nation in communication with foreign sovereignties. Foreign nations communicate only through their respective executive departments. Resolutions of their legislative departments upon diplomatic matters have no status in international law. In the department of international law, therefore, properly speaking, a congressional recognition of belligerency or independence would be a nullity. See Sen. Doc. 56, 54th Cong. 2d Sess. (1897), p. 20-22. "
My last complaint, for now, about Congress’s war crimes, is this example from the hypocritical war criminal, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mrs. Nancy Pelosi. Mrs. Pelosi has said “Every aspect of our lives must be subjected to an inventory ... of how we are taking responsibility” and it is time for her to take her share of responsibility for war crimes.
She was also quoted as saying, "No one is above the law" when trying to impeach you, Mr. President, while disingenuously violating the US Constitution and law, and the Geneva Convention on allegiance, “Art. 45. It is forbidden to compel the inhabitants of occupied territory to swear allegiance to the hostile Power.” And LOWM 11.4.2 again, “In addition, the Occupying Power may not compel the inhabitants of occupied territory to become its nationals or otherwise to swear allegiance to it.” These laws also prohibit implying a loss of sovereignty and make cultural misappropriation of Hawaiian culture a war crime.
During an interview with TODAY’s Mrs. Savannah Guthrie, January 2019, Mrs. Pelosi talks about one of her many regular vacations to the temporarily occupied Hawaiian Kingdom, this one during the government shutdown. “The President might not know this but Hawai’i is part of the United States of America, maybe he doesn’t realize that” (0:41) and “I happily saw uh, ‘O Holy Night,’ ‘Silent Night,’ and the rest, sung in Hawaiian, and danced uh to Hawaiian movements, and the rest. It was a beautiful part of American culture" (1:22). Mrs. Pelosi’s criminal cultural misappropriation of “Hawaiian movements” as a part of her culture refers to our dance, Hula, which is a beautiful part of Hawaiian culture, not American culture. And she is violating International Law and the US Constitution by saying that Hawai'i is part of the USA. https://www.today.com/video/nancy-pelosi-on-hawaii-trip-amid-shutdown-i-didn-t-take-a-holiday-1418849859542
The USA and you, Mr. President, are under an obligation not to recognize the illegal situation resulting from this unlawful war. The law demands that we be recognized as the "temporarily occupied Hawaiian Kingdom." I ask that this lawful acknowledgment be made public and all instances of the "State of Hawaii" or the "50th State" be replaced with the "temporarily occupied Hawaiian Kingdom" or the "Hawaiian Kingdom" henceforth and forthwith, as required by law. The flag of Hawai’i is the kingdom flag and may not be identified as the “State” flag, as per GC Article 45 above on allegiance.
The USA’s, State of Hawaii, County Council Member Ms. Jen Ruggles legally notified you, Mr. President, and all the USA's relevant agents, of this history of Hawai'i and your present war crimes in a 394-page Notice from her attorney Mr. Stephen Laudig in 2018. Notice for "War Crimes of Unlawful and Wanton Appropriation of Property" is available again for you, as a link on the website for this Notice that I provided for you and through the link several paragraphs above. This is only one of the most recent notifications since 1893.
The only questions here are of the reparations due from the United States of America and, most importantly, the question of when this war of "temporary" belligerent occupation will end, and peace be restored. Hawaiians have suffered more than enough. A few brief examples are:
The “disparate impact of the criminal justice system on Native Hawaiians is apparent at every stage of the criminal justice system,” Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA). Moreover, prisoners are forced deported away from Hawai’i and to the United States, 2004 records listed approximately 730 Protected Persons as Prisoners of War across USA prisons in violation of the GC “ART. 49. — Individual or mass forcible transfers, as well as deportations of protected persons from occupied territory to the territory of the Occupying Power or to that of any other country, occupied or not, are prohibited, regardless of their motive” (The Impact of the Criminal Justice System on Native Hawaiians) https://www.oha.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/factsheets_final_web_0.pdf
Native Hawaiians are also the largest racial group with families below the poverty level, with families on public assistance, and with individuals 200 percent below the poverty level (Reconciliation at a Crossroads: The Implications of the Apology Resolution and Rice v. Cayetano for Federal and State Programs Benefiting Native Hawaiians) https://www.usccr.gov/pubs/sac/hi0601/main.htm
Today, nearly as many Native Hawaiians reside outside Hawai‘i as there are living in Hawai‘i. Forty-five percent of the total 527,077 Native Hawaiians identified in the 2010 census live within the continental United States or in Alaska,” (Kalo kanu o ka ‘äina, Chapter One, Native Hawaiian Population, page 23). The total population of Hawai’i in the 2010 Census was 1,360,301, of that only 289,970, or 21% are aboriginal Hawaiian, (page 24). http://www.ksbe.edu/_assets/spi/pdfs/kh/Ka_Huakai_2014/Chapter_One_-_Native_Hawaiian_Population.pdf
Today, nearly as many aboriginal Hawaiians live outside of Hawai’i as inside because of an overwhelming common reason; an unaffordable cost of living and inability to own a home. Aboriginal Hawaiians cannot afford to live in Hawai’i or purchase fraudulent title to our communal lands, so must leave home to afford a house and a decent standard of living, not emigrating by choice. “Arkus left Hawaii in 2015 because he was working three jobs and still couldn’t afford his own apartment. A veteran who struggles with PTSD, Arkus didn’t feel like having roommates was an option.” From Stories Of Pain And Success From The Hawaiian Diaspora https://www.civilbeat.org/2020/06/stories-of-pain-and-success-from-the-hawaiian-diaspora/
So, who is living in Hawai’i if not Hawaiians? United States citizens can afford to illegally live in Hawai’i on our stolen land, and fraudulently comprise about 61% of the population or 816,180 people. This another violation of the GC, the last sentence of Article 45, “The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.” Foreign-born people comprise 18%. At 21%, Hawaiians barely outnumber foreigners, and Americans outnumber Hawaiians practically 3 to 1. https://www.census.gov/quickfacts/fact/table/HI/POP645218#POP645218
At only 21% of the population, we are about 42% of the homeless, “Native Hawaiians were overrepresented among Hawaii’s homeless” and “Data from 2016 show that 42 percent of 7,921 homeless individuals in Hawaii identified as Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander.” Housing Needs of Native Hawaiians: A Report From the Assessment of American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian Housing Needs, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, https://www.huduser.gov/portal/sites/default/files/pdf/HNNH.pdf
The population of aboriginal Hawaiians today is a miracle. The lowest Census record was 37,656 people in the year 1900, this, the first Census after the illegal overthrow, shows us to be at our nadir in every way. Miraculously, 110 years later, the 2010 Census shows 527,077 Hawaiians, of which 8,000 are full-blooded, bringing us back up to about half of how many we were Before the Horror: The Population of Hawai’i on the Eve of Western Contact by Mr. David. E. Stannard. His research shows the population to have been around 800,000-1,000,000 people.
More conservative estimates “were 683,000 Native Hawaiians on the island in 1778, when British explorer Capt. James Cook arrived” and “1-in-17 Native Hawaiians had died within two years of Cook’s arrival. By 1800, the population had declined by 48% since Cook set foot on Hawaii. By 1820, it had declined 71%; by 1840, it declined 84%.” And also from this source, “Captain Cook and his crew wrote in well-documented accounts about concerns that they had infected the population with venereal diseases (Cook said he unsuccessfully tried to prevent his men from mingling with the native women).” Whatever the number is, it is a tragic shame and genocide. After 200 years, Native Hawaiians make a comeback by Sara Kehaulani Goo, https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2015/04/06/native-hawaiian-population/
The following is from the Verdict of the International Tribunal of Indigenous Peoples and Oppressed Nations in the USA:
"The Federal Government of the United States of America has perpetrated crimes of genocide against the Kanaka Maoli (the lndigenous Hawaiian People) and has engaged in actions constituting gross violations of their human rights and their right to self-determination, all of which threaten to render the Kanaka Maoli extinct." http://freedomarchives.org/Documents/Finder/DOC35_scans/35.1992tribunal.verdict.english.pdf
Imagine a paradise of eternal summer on the sparkling shores of a glorious, abundant land. Where everyone is beautiful and healthy and generous, and all there was to do all day was perfect your skills, dance, play, and thank God in all things. Imagine a life of play, of games and gaming and challenges, of wagering on the outcomes where supreme skill gave you mana, status and rank; like surfing, sledding, spear dodging, and most admirably, riddling. “Their talent for oratory and the higher branches of mathematics is unusually marked,” Report of U.S. Special Commissioner James H. Blount to U.S. Secretary of State Walter Q. Gresham Concerning the Hawaiian Kingdom Investigation (The Blount Report), 1893, page 600) https://dl.wdl.org/7767/service/7767.pdf
Because of our unique way of life, “At the time of the discovery of the Hawaiians they were physically one of the most striking native races in the world...as a race they were tall, shapely, and muscular, with good features and kind eyes. In symmetry of form the women have scarcely been surpassed, if equaled, while the men excelled in muscular strength.” The Physique of the Ancient Hawaiians by Vaughan MacCaughey, The Scientific Monthly, Vol. 5, No. 2, Aug. 1917, page 167, https://www.jstor.org/stable/22645
Gaming and wagering are fundamentals of Hawaiian culture. The USA illegally deprives Hawaiians of a fundamental part of our culture, and what has proven to be a massive source of income for Native American tribes. The “State of Hawaii” outlawed all forms of gaming, even Bingo, for no lawful reason, for no reason other than to further subjugate the Hawaiian people, depriving us of our culture and maintaining their economic stranglehold.
“Hawai'i and Utah are the only states that prohibit all forms of gambling, bingo included.” Hawai’i and Utah the only 2 out of 50 states to outlaw gambling! However, the USA’s Armed Forces hold themselves exempt from the laws prohibiting gambling in Hawai’i, in addition to their Laws of War and the US Constitution and our bilateral treaties. From The Honolulu Advertiser, 2003, “The Morale, Welfare and Recreation bingo and buffet combination is a popular money maker for both the Army and Air Force. The Hickam buffets gross $575,000 per year, base officials estimated,” from Bingo on military bases raises legal issues by William Cole, http://the.honoluluadvertiser.com/article/2003/Sep/29/ln/ln01a.html
Unconstitutional laws restricting the freedoms of Americans by prohibiting gambling in Utah are due to the influences of the Mormon Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, “Utah actually has the highest Mormon population in the world,” by Bradley Retter in Learn Why Utah Isn’t Taking Any Bets https://www.bestuscasinos.org/blog/learn-why-utah-isnt-taking-any-bets/
Unconstitutional laws prohibiting gambling in Hawai’i originate from the evangelical missionaries of the United Church of Christ (UCC). They are liable for the illegal overthrow and are on a mission to take our land and replace our culture with their religion. They also influenced laws banning hula dance, speaking our language, and our natural ways of life. The Christian missionaries of the UCC were the school teachers and beat our children for speaking their own names, for doing so broke their laws prohibiting speaking our language.
Their greed wanted, wants, and still possesses our land. They offered only a “public apology” once in 1993 as their self-determined restitution for past and continuing war crimes in Apology Resolution, “the United Church of Christ in recognition of the denomination's historical complicity in the illegal overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii in 1893 directed the Office of the President of the United Church of Christ to offer a public apology.” Then they gave themselves millions of dollars more of our stolen land. Since when do criminals get to decide their own punishment? Since the criminal is a Christian Church, I tell the same old story tragically echoed across the world by countless native people. Is the church any different today? No. The United Church of Christ continues to perpetuate its infamous reputation and modus operandi of decimating native people, bloody sacrifices contrary to Christianity, and more akin to Satanic devotion. “And you are to love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength. 'The second is this, 'You are to love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these" (Mark 12:30-31). And from the Art of the Deal, "My point is that you can't be too greedy" President Donald J. Trump.
And a final complaint, for now, regarding TMT, the Thirty Meter Telescope. Mr. President, may I recall you to the beginning of the pandemic. Remember the months-long campout of hundreds and worldwide protests over the $2.4 billion TMT to be constructed atop Maunakea mountain that was postponed due to this pandemic? TMT is being built by Parsons Brinkerhoff, who is, as you know, the world’s leading expert on underground military bases and is the builder of Raven Rock, a.k.a. the “underground pentagon.” Furthermore, TMT’s cutting-edge microchip intelligence is courtesy of your own military’s preferred microchips contractor, Intel Corporation. Intel’s founder Gordon Moore is also funding TMT. Maunakea is the tallest mountain on Earth, “All armies prefer high ground to low,” The Art of War by Sun Tzu. https://judicialcorruptionnews.com/tmt-military
But building TMT, and its strange deep underground component, will cause immeasurable, irreparable damage, and is for a proclaimed scientific use, which is prohibited under LOWM and International Customary Law. Because Maunakea (a nickname) is a religious and cultural treasure, a place of worship, its proper name is Mauna a Wākea or Wākea’s Mountain. Wākea, Sky Father, united with Papa, Earth Mother, atop Maunakea, where Heaven meets Earth, to create all the Hawaiian Islands and people.
188.8.131.52 Municipal, Religious, Charitable, and Cultural Property. The property of municipalities, that of institutions dedicated to religion, charity, and education, and the arts and sciences, even when State property, shall be treated as private property. All seizure of, destruction of, or willful damage done to institutions of this character, historic monuments, works of art, and science, is forbidden, and should be made the subject of legal proceedings, (LOWM, page 813).
Let us come together in peaceful, fair, and lawful reconciliation, settling this dispute in good faith. "Affirming that disputes concerning treaties, like other international disputes, should be settled by peaceful means and in conformity with the principles of justice and international law," Vienna Convention on Treaties. I look forward to your prompt reply.
I am compelled to get recognition of my rights and family honor so that I have the legal power to fight for my people and our lands, and I will not give up; we Hawaiians persevere. "Cry for the gods. Cry for the people. Cry for the land that was taken away. And then yet you will find, Hawai'i,” Hawai'i '78, a song by Mr. Israel Kamakawiwoʻole. I have pledged my life to God to liberate my people and our lands; I can not and will not let this matter go. Similar letters are being sent out to Congress, DoD, DoJ, public officials, and international agencies.
We welcomed you here, you personally Mr. President, the United States of America, millions of your citizens as residents, and hundreds of millions as tourists. We welcomed you with open arms and hearts, with love and remarkable generosity. And we have remained gracious and loving throughout your horrific treatment of us and in the face of our death and despair. While you misappropriate our culture and vacation to watch the remnants of us dance hula and smile big for tourists and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mrs. Nancy Pelosi, from our gilded cage. “They are over-generous, hospitable, almost free from revenge, very courteous—especially to females,” (The Blount Report, 1893, page 600).
I am asking you to use your supreme executive power to end Congress’s war against Hawai’i, as President Grover Cleveland said but did not do, “Whereas President Cleveland further concluded that a "substantial wrong has thus been done which a due regard for our national character as well as the rights of the injured people requires we should endeavor to repair'' and called for the restoration of the Hawaiian monarchy,” Apology Resolution. You could solidify your greatness in the annuls of history, unlike President Cleveland, “Historians do not rank Grover Cleveland as a great President.” Or get a footnote like this if Mr. Joe Biden becomes the one with the supreme executive power to make this decision and write himself into history as the savior of Hawaiians. “At the most, historians tend to see Cleveland's (Trump’s) presidency as an essential preface to the emergence of the modern presidency that began with Theodore Roosevelt (Joe Biden).” https://millercenter.org/president/cleveland/impact-and-legacy
I am asking you to use your Constitutionally granted, supreme executive power over Congress to end their impunity and criminal disregard for the rule of law and restore the lawful government of the Hawaiian Islands, and be heralded forever as the savior of a race of people. “I will fight for you with every breath in my body - and I will never, ever let you down,” President Donald J Trump, Inaugural Address, January 20, 2017. My dream for you to liberate us and to take my rightful place as Princess of Hawai’i is a big dream, an enormous dream, yet your inaugural words strengthen me, “We expect to have great relationships. No dream is too big. No challenge is too great. Nothing we want for our future is beyond our reach.”
I humbly pray for you to remember your duty to promote universal respect for, and observance of, human rights and freedoms, and that you reaffirm the international legal principles of accountability, justice, and the rule of law. I ask that you finally break the cycle of impunity and that you stand as a beacon of honor to the Constitution of the United States. I await your honorable and peace-loving response, praying that you will choose to reconcile in aloha.
Her Royal Highness The Princess of the Hawaiian Islands
