Never doubt the political clout of two U.S. senators, Daniel Akaka and Daniel Inouye, who successfully submitted a new bill, S. 3064, the Native Hawaiian Government Reorganization Act into a first reading in the U.S. Senate on one day (May 25), to a second reading on the next day (May 26) and to cloture vote within a week (perhaps as early as today). These two senators were greatly assisted by some promised obligation of Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist.
S. 3064 authorizes a new Native Hawaiian government entity — using the term 71 times but merely defining the entity as some ambiguous, future government "organized by the Native Hawaiian people." The new bill has only one sponsor, Akaka, but previous sponsors of the predecessor bill, S. 147, remain committed: Maria Cantwell (D.-Wash.), Norm Coleman (R.-Minn.), Byron Dorgan (D.-N.D.), Lindsey Graham (R.-S.C.), Inouye, Lisa Murkowski (R.-Alaska), Gordon Smith (R.-Ore.), and Ted Stevens (R.-Alaska).
These eight senators and Akaka entirely fail the sanity and ethics test, so we will need to watch precisely how the remaining 91 senators vote on this precedent-setting bill to dismantle America into separate race-based enclaves annually funded by taxpayers but tax-exempt and free of most federal, and all state and local governing authority.
Can you just hear the spin? "Oh this bill’s better. This bill improves S. 147. You can vote for this bill." The peril is that senators swamped with other issues will buy into the Big Lie, and make an expedient vote that could tear this country asunder in the very near future.
Should S. 3064 pass, the legal door is open for indigenous Mexican homeland claims being pursued by the Aztlan Movement to overturn the 1848 Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo in order to restore 525,000 square miles of the Southwestern United States to the indigenous Mexicans. This is no joke. This is what the Akaka bill means for the future of an America, no longer "indivisible."
Nine senators co-sponsoring S. 147, now morphed into S. 3064, having completely flunked their course on the U.S. Constitution, turn a deaf ear to the majority of their constituents, and have no problem debilitating our youngest state of Hawaii. A separate, race-based government operating far outside of the U.S. Constitution is just fine with these federal elected officials, but how this mentality comports with taking their Oath of Office is chilling.
S. 3064 reports that within the U.S. Constitution’s Commerce Clause (Article I, Sec. 8, Clause 3) is the constitutional ground for the legislation. The Commerce Clause states, "To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with Indian tribes." Clearly, U.S. citizens containing "a single drop of Hawaiian blood" are not: 1) foreign nations, 2) states of the United States, or 3) Indian tribes. The Commerce Clause, nor any other language within the U.S. Constitution allows such a travesty as the Akaka bill.
U.S. citizens of a single drop of Hawaiian blood are currently protected under the Constitution and its amendments only until they allow foolish leaders such as Inouye, Akaka, and seven other silly senators to remove their constitutional protections by passing S. 3064.
Imagine a United States of a mere 50 states, perhaps soon diminished to 49 states. Imagine a United States containing 561 federally recognized Indian tribes operating outside of the U.S. Constitution, along with 274 new Indian "tribes" pursuing a separate, race-based "extra-constitutional" government. Then imagine a separate Hawaiian race-based government, that spawns separate Mexican government homelands and governing "entities" within seven more of our United States.
Do not forget that more than 411 tribal casinos pump unaccountable millions into both political parties (thank you, Sen. McCain), and especially the U.S. Senate. This congressionally sanctioned gambling monopoly has returned an egregious political "profit" to the U.S. Senate. We now have the Enron mentality in the U.S. Senate that imperils all 50 states should it pass S. 3064.
If senators are offended by these comments, perhaps, God-willing, they will prove me wrong by soundly defeating such a horrific concept as yet another separate race-based government sanctioned by the U.S. Senate. My fear is that I may be right on this, and that what remains of sanity and ethics within federal elected officials lingers enough in the House of Representatives to spare this country a growing domestic civil war.
Thomas Sowell states the issue best:
"Civil rights cannot include everything that is done by government which benefits particular groups, individually or collectively. The whole case for civil rights is that every American is entitled to them. Civil rights are not about doing special things for special groups."
Our senators will either salvage our civil rights by defeating S. 3064, or they will savage what remains of the civil rights of U.S. citizens. Speak up right now to all of the senators you can contact, and watch the vote on S. 3064 very, very carefully.
