  1. If Hawaii is ever to return to the Rule of the Kings with a Kingdom we will need to go back to where the original Kings (Alii) left off with Christ Jesus as King of Kings and follow the motto: “The Life Of The LAND, Is Perpetuated in Righteousness.) In Unity under the LORD JESUS CHRIST there is power for change and freedom to restore the Kingdom, good change. Returning to the old gods and ways will only bring slavery. Not writing about traditional Christianity but solid Biblical Jesus Christianity that was submitted to by the Alii of old after King K…. The new Kingdom must also include all those with Aloha Hearts regardless of color or genes.. The primary meaning of Aloha says it all.

    • One of the reasons I rarely go to church any longer is b/c the star spangled banner is a song they seem to think is appropriate to sing. Mass also includes prayers for our soldiers. Personally, I’d like to hear a prayer for ALL those caught in or involved in armed conflicts, worldwide rather than centering around “our soldiers”. The Honolulu Diosces has no reply. It’s troubling. Especially after seeing certain historical documents that point to church involvement in politics during 1893-1898. They’ve always been political, so why so squeamish about this topic?

    • Kalanimoku as Prime Minister was baptized by a catholic priest in 1819 on a French ship in the bay of Pu`u Kohola at Kawaihae, when King Liholiho Kamehameha II received his successorship to the throne, after his father died and Ka`ahumanu became Kuhina Nui to out rank him.

      Never the less – BEING A CHRISTIAN NATION – exempted us from THE DOCTRINE OF DISCOVERY:

      Papal Bulls of the 15th century gave Christian explorers the right to claim lands they “discovered” and lay claim to those lands for their Christian Monarchs. Any land that was not inhabited by Christians was available to be “discovered”, claimed, and exploited. If the “pagan” inhabitants could be converted, they might be spared. If not, they could be enslaved or killed.

      The Discovery Doctrine is a concept of public international law expounded by the United States Supreme Court in a series of decisions, intially in Johnson v. M’Intosh in 1823. The doctrine was Chief Justice John Marshall’s explanation of the way in which colonial powers laid claim to newly discovered lands during the Age of Discovery. Under it, title to newly discovered lands lay with the government whose subjects discovered new territory. The doctrine has been primarily used to support decisions invalidating or ignoring aboriginal possession of land in favor of colonial or post-colonial governments.

  2. konapilgrim, The monarchy and it’s laws did not discriminate any religion or race and it is evidenced in it’s Constitution, Laws and practice. Discrimination and exclusion was introduced by the hypocritical Christians that violated not only men’s Laws but also God’s law of covitnece to gain power and wealth of a friendly and peaceful nation. Which by the way had an aboriginal population that was about 95% solid biblical Jesus Christians. These hypocrites committed the Sins and had the nerve to force us to Sing God Bless America. Maybe instead of addressing Hawaiian Rulers you should be speaking to these so called Christians in gov’t and Churches to stop using the Lord’s name in vain by preaching the lie that this is America and start preaching the Truth and show us that they are really solid biblical Jesus Christians.

    • E`o, pololei olelo maka`i. I moved home to Maui from California, in 1990 to 2013 and reconnected to our Kupuna Kahiko and Aumakua through men like Anakala Sam Kaai, John Lake, Kekuni Blaisdell, Bill Amona, Papa Kawika Kealakea, The Christians know what happened to our Hawaiian Kingdom and yet they still preach and support the lies that exist even until today. Now, I live in Aschau im Chiemgau Bavaria Germany for 4 years. Akua is the energy of the universe, my father and our Kupuna Kahiko, have this same beliefs which was denied to us., Over 100 million people died for Christianity in the European World Wars. Our Kanaka Maoli are Christianized, Americanized, Colonized and Assimilated and they need to see the truth. He Hawaii Au Mau a Mau. Aloha.

      • As factual as all the presenters were/are, it is interesting that there are those that want to put in a religious perspective in to a factual conversation and at the same ignoring the history of their religion

      • What I find interesting is how people will insert religious comments based on beliefs and opinion into a factual historical discussion ignoring the facts of history in their religion as you have pointed out and much more – Discovery Doctrine and Colonization, US history of mass murder, genocide and slavery.

  3. Dr Kauai’s and Dr Sai desire to educate is refreshing, no politics, opinions and emotion. I will say emotion comes into play, when the facts are known.

  4. The thing I find interesting for both Dr Kauai and Sai, even in their desire to be factual, is they comment about Obama in reference to his supposed non US citizenship – “The birthers are right for the wrong reasons”, because, they seem to be ignoring language procedure in interpreting Article. II. Section. 1. Paragraph 5 of the Constitution:

    “No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”

    When did “or” become “and”? It says: “… natural born citizen, OR a Citizen of the United States,” There is a comma after “or” to emphasize the “or”.

    • Maybe, it’s more about the “at the time of the adoption of this constitution”, that is the answer? That time has long since passed, leaving only “no person except a natural born citizen”.🤔 Just a thought.

  5. E kalamai for adding more, don’t know how to expand comment box so can post full comment.

    Another thing, the first 9 presidents were not born in the US. They were born in British Colonies making them English Citizens. John Tyler (1841-1845) was the First US born president. He was born in March 29, 1790, in the State of Virginia in US.

    Was this section of the Constitution delayed until 1841? Or, is it a “yeah but” section subject to interpretation?
