YouTube introduction: Whist erecting a seven story high structure to be used as a Christmas tree, the helicopter's rotor struck a cable causing the aircraft to crash to the ground. The pilot was helped from the crumpled wreckage with minor injuries. Both of my Panasonic P2HD cameras were recording? at the same time, even though I go to reposition myself because I didn't like the look of the cable near the rotor, my camera I am carrying is still recording. My other static wide view camera caught me walking across the frame, you can see the guy tug on the cable just as I go past him. After the impact, and seeing that the wreck had not burst in to flames, I'm the guy in the yellow hi-vis, white hat and blue jeans that hops in to the cab to help get the unconscious pilot out along with the guy who originally pulled on the cable. I have removed the "comments" option as some people have been posting ridiculous messages, this was all just an accident, and by the grace of God, no one was badly injured.
Threatens sanctions if Russia doesn’t pull forces back
Hawaii Political Info introduction: Under the pretext of concern for democracy, even though Ukraine's democratically elected president was violently overthrown by rebels who want EU money, the U.S. is tightening its ill-gotten triumph in Ukraine by sending Secretary of State John Kerry, an ethnic Jew, to the country and threatening sanctions against Russia, Ukraine's next-door neighbor. Ukraine was a part of the USSR until 1991.
Threatening Russia with sanctions is playing with fire. It was U.S.-led sanctions that made Japan decide to go to war, starting with the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, widening a war that ended with 60 million deaths. It was U.S.-led sanctions that resulted in the estimated deaths of 500,000 Iraqi children, which then-Secretary of State Madeline Albright, a Jew, said was "worth it." U.S.-led sanctions in Iran is a reckless repeat of what we did to Iraq, causing the Iranian people to suffer, not so much the leaders.
Sanctions are a highly effective way to create enemies and violence against the U.S. "The Great Satan" is a realistic description of our country, together with our close partner in crime, Israel.

The Obama administration called Russia’s advances in Ukraine “a brazen act of aggression” Sunday and threatened sanctions but skirted questions about whether the United States might use force to deter Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The State Department announced Sunday that Secretary of State John F. Kerry will visit Kiev on Tuesday to show support for the new leadership there in the face of the Russian military intervention. Kerry on Sunday called the rapid movement of Russian troops across the border into the Crimean region of Ukraine unwarranted and outside international law and said Russia would suffer economic and political consequences.
“He’s going to lose on the international stage,” Kerry said on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” referring to Putin. “Russia is going to lose, the Russian people are going to lose, and he’s going to lose all of the glow that came out of the Olympics, his $60 billion extravaganza.”
Last week Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel proposed an additional 40,000 reduction in active duty US Army personnel, down to 450,000 soldiers. As US troops are being withdrawn from the recent wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, it might make sense to reduce not only the active duty military but the entire military budget. However, from the interventionists’ reaction to Hagel’s announcement you might think President Obama announced he was shutting down the Pentagon!
Rep. Michael McCaul, Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, claimed that this slight reduction in personnel would hurt our military readiness. He blamed the exploding spending on welfare entitlements for the proposed military cuts, stating, "It's all being sacrificed ... on the altar of entitlements. This president cannot take on mandatory spending, so all we've done in the Congress — and this president — is basically cut discretionary spending."
McCaul is partly right. Welfare spending is bankrupting the country. But military spending is also welfare: it is welfare for the well-connected military-industrial complex, which enriches itself manufacturing useless boondoggles like the F-35 fighter. We should never confuse legitimate defense spending — which I support — with military spending, which promotes interventionism overseas and actually undermines our national security.
Neoconservative Senators Lindsey Graham and John McCain were also quick to criticize Hagel’s announcement. They said the cuts were dead on arrival in the US Senate. "We are going to kill it, not let it happen,” said Graham. McCain added, "We live in an ever-increasingly dangerous world and this budget is out of touch with reality.”
What McCain and Graham won’t admit is that much of the reason we are in an increasingly dangerous world is that the neocons keep inviting blowback with the interventions they are constantly pushing. If we minded our own business we would live in a far less dangerous world.
Nevertheless, although the neocons make a big deal about this small cut in military personnel, in reality these are not military cuts at all. These are token proposed cuts in troop levels which Congress won’t allow the administration to do anyway. What Hagel proposes is not cuts, but instead a shift in spending away from personnel and toward new high-tech weapons which are favored by and profitable to the military-industrial complex.
The F-35, for example, will continue in production according to Hagel’s plan, despite the numerous cost over-runs and design flaws. This is likely because the F-35 is built in 46 US states and nine foreign countries! That makes it particularly popular in Congress, regardless of its flaws and expense.
We do need real cuts in military spending, not just moving spending around from troops to new weapons systems. But what we really need is for the president to downsize US foreign policy. Maintaining a military presence in 140 countries while continuing to stir up trouble can lead to problems when the military is downsized. So, it's our intervention that needs downsizing.
A proper foreign policy would mean a strong national defense, but a huge reduction in interventions and commitments overseas. Why are we stirring up trouble in Ukraine? In Syria? In Africa? Why are we defending South Korea and Japan when they are wealthy enough to defend themselves? A proper sized foreign policy would defend the United States instead of provoking the rest of the world.
March 1, 2014Greenwald’s Boss Omidyar provided 36% of “Center UA”’s $500,000 budget in 2012— nearly $200,000. USAID provided 54% of “Center UA”’s budget for 2012. Other funders included the US government-backed National Endowment for Democracy.
According to financial disclosures and reports published by Pando, the founder and publisher of Glenn Greenwald’s new venture co-invested with the US government to help fund regime change in Ukraine.
This is a major exposé that vindicates our series on the Greenwald-Snowden-Omidyar axis (Please see below for links). Here are a few excerpts, but I urge you to visit Pando’s website and read the entire investigative report, and do so several times [All Emphasis Mine]:
Hawaii Political Info introduction: With Jewish chutzpah, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu says Israel is a Jewish state. Let's see, Jews want the U.S. to be a diverse country, so, for one thing, they can live and thrive here with their behind-the-scenes machinations. But when it comes to Israel, turn about is not fair play. No, after stealing the land that Israel is located on from Palestinians and Arabs, a fact that our obliging Jewish-owned media sweeps under the rug, Jews have the chutzpah to not only run Israel as a Jewish state, but to say it out loud. And Christians are backing the Christ-hating, Christ-rejecting, warmongering Jews.

Russia Today introduction: To be an ambassador you need patience, tact and a solid dose of statesmanship. Or, if you want to be a top envoy for Barack Obama, just fund his campaign. Embarrassingly for the US president, his election bankrollers now outnumber career diplomats - but some have never even set foot in the countries they're supposed to serve in, as Gayane Chichakyan reports.

In April of 2013, I warned Natural News readers about investing in Bitcoin, saying on the record:
The bitcoin infrastructure is subject to the whims of just one person running MTGox who can arbitrarily decide to shut it down whenever he thinks the market needs a "cooling period." This is nearly equivalent to a financial dictatorship where one person calls the shots.
Just two days ago, the largest bitcoin exchange MTGox suddenly and without warning shuttered its doors, blocking all customers from accessing their accounts which are collectively worth hundreds of millions of dollars.
On December 11, 2013 an article was published in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, written by a group of Hawaiian independence activists, explaining their viewpoint and announcing that throughout 2014 there will be a series of monthly public forums about Hawaiian sovereignty.
The authors, most of whom have a long history of independence activism and would become panelists in the 2014 forums, included University of Hawaii Professor Jonathan Osorio, attorney and radio broadcaster Hayden Burgess (alias Poka Laenui) and his wife Puanani Burgess, Leon Siu, Tony Castanha, Pilipo Souza, Kuhio Vogeler, and others.
The activists used deceptive advertising, portraying their forums as open and honest discussions when in fact the first two of them in January and February were tightly scripted propaganda circuses. Only the activists were allowed to speak, telling falsehoods about Hawaii's history as though they are true, and allowing no rebuttal. He mea ma'a mau ia [same old same old] -- this is how the independence activists always behave].
The spokesman for the group was Michael Kioni Dudley, a Caucasian retired school teacher with a self-adopted and misspelled middle name who co-authored a book in 1990 with Keoni K. Agard entitled "Hawaiian Nation: A Call for Hawaiian Sovereignty." Dudley is typical of liberal social-justice activist Caucasians from the mainland who come to Hawaii, immerse themselves in Hawaiian culture, learn a distorted narrative of Hawaiian history portraying the natives as poor downtrodden victims of American imperialism, and quickly become aggressive supporters of Hawaiian independence. Before coming to Hawaii he lived as a Catholic monk for 17 years in Southern California while teaching at a Catholic school. In Hawaii he has been active for many years serving the typical liberal political agenda: supporting environmental stewardship, sustainable agriculture, and preservation of farmland; while opposing genetically modified crops and development of housing subdivisions. He ran for Governor on the Green Party ticket, and has been a member of his neighborhood board and chairman of its committee devoted to [ethnic] Hawaiian Affairs.
The basic dishonesty of advertising an event as open to all views but then conducting it as one-sided propaganda was amplified by the dishonorable behavior of spokesman Kioni Dudley. He advertised the first forum as being sponsored by the neighborhood board of which he is a member, when in fact the board never agreed to sponsor it. Here's the flyer advertising the first forum:
In a highly unusual action, the neighborhood board held a special meeting at the Kapolei civic center at the same time as the first forum was being televised live from the Kapolei High School cafeteria. The board reprimanded Dudley for falsely publicizing his forum as being sponsored by the board. They did not merely remove him from his committee chairmanship because of his abuse of their trust -- they completely abolished his committee! The official minutes of the neighborhood board special meeting make fascinating reading:
Having lost any appearance of board sponsorship, the second forum, in February, was held in a small studio at the headquarters building of 'Olelo Community Media in Mapunapuna, where such panel discussions are produced and televised under terms of the cable television company's license which requires it to provide facilities, equipment, and air time free of charge for community events. Although publicity said the public was invited to attend and to join the discussion, not many people could fit into the studio, and of course any unscripted discussions happened only after the 90-minute live broadcast had finished. Here's the flyer for the February forum:
A webpage for the series of forums has been created by the independence activists, entitled "The Sovereignty Conversation: Looking Back, Looking Ahead in Hawai'i" The webpage is beautifully designed, and will be providing videos of each of the forums, a collection of suggested activities for families to engage in at home, and a discussion board where people can post comments about various topics. However, anyone who wants to post any comments must first register for the bulletin board, and then must log in on each occasion. It's unclear whether the moderator will be filtering who is allowed to register and perhaps also censoring the individual comments. Perhaps there will be interesting things to read there! "The Sovereignty Conversation" webpage is at
The announced topic of the February forum was "A fresh look at Hawaiian history from Kamehameha to 1900."
Professor Jonathan Osorio described the leadership styles of Kamehameha The Great, Kauikeaouli Kamehameha III, and Queen Lili'uokalani, characterizing them as defenders of Hawaiian nationhood. But Osorio failed to note the fact that Europeans and Americans were full partners whose work was essential in building and defending the Kingdom. Osorio also failed to note that Lili'uokalani's incompetent and chaotic leadership were major contributors to her overthrow, and that she conspired in violent actions by her agent Robert Wilcox in 1889 and 1895.
Kioni Dudley showed maps while describing how Hawaii fell victim to the U.S. expansionist "Westward Ho" dream of God-given Manifest Destiny. Dudley gave the usual narrative about how there was a conspiracy at the highest levels of the U.S. government under several Presidents to take over Hawaii. But of course there are many ways to interpret what was said and done. For example John McAllister Schofield had visited Hawaii in 1872 to study whether Pearl Harbor would be suitable for a naval base. Dudley portrayed this as some sort of a spy mission; but of course it was normal due diligence prior to the U.S. making major concessions on sugar tariffs to the Kingdom a few years later in a treaty signed with King Kalakaua.
Hayden Burgess (Poka Laenui) covered Hawaii's history between 1894 and 1900. Burgess argued that the revolutionary Provisional Government, the Republic of Hawaii, the annexation of 1898, and Organic Act of 1900 were all examples of de facto authority by the United States but not de jure sovereignty which remained with the illegally overthrown Kingdom. He complained that the U.S. peacekeepers had done the overthrowing of the Queen. But actually the local militia did the job and the U.S. peacekeepers did not take over any buildings, did not patrol the streets, did not give any food or ammunition to the revolutionaries. Burgess referred to the U.S. apology resolution of 1993 as a confession by the U.S. that it had illegally overthrown the Hawaiian Kingdom in 1893. However, the apology resolution is filled with historical falsehoods, and never had a committee hearing where those falsehoods could have been exposed. Burgess is completely wrong when he said that the Republic had only de facto authority and was nothing more than a placeholder until the Queen could be restored. During the last half of 1894 emperors, kings, queens, and presidents of at least 19 nations on 4 continents personally signed letters in 11 languages formally recognizing the Republic as the de jure government. This is how new permanent governments get recognized de jure following a revolution -- when the heads of state of other sovereign nations personally acknowledge their sovereignty. Burgess complained that the Treaty of Annexation was illegal because it was not passed by a 2/3 vote of the Senators who were present. But the fact remains that it is a matter of U.S. law, for the U.S. alone to decide, by what method a treaty can be ratified; and a precedent for using joint resolution had been established 50 years previously in the annexation of Texas. Burgess complained that subjects of the Hawaiian Kingdom never gave their permission to become citizens of the Republic of Hawaii and then of the United States. But when nations merge or break apart citizens are hardly ever asked to vote about it; and in any case individual citizens or groups of citizens cannot declare themselves to be outside a change of citizenship which their government has ratified on behalf of everyone.
Of course no rebuttal was allowed during the carefully scripted live propaganda broadcast. Nevertheless, I wrote a webpage outlining the main points made by each panelist and providing my own rebuttals to them, accompanied by numerous citations to webpages which provide more detailed rebuttals.

In 2004 Hungary joined the EU, expecting streets of gold. Instead, four years later in 2008 Hungary became indebted to the IMF. The rock video by the Hungarian group, Mouksa Underground sums up the result in Hungary today of falling into the hands of the EU and IMF.
The song is about the disappointing results of leaving socialism for capitalism, and in Hungary the results are certainly not encouraging. The title is “Disappointment with the System Change.” Here are the lyrics:
