Hawaiian Kingdom mortgage land scams make a big return in 2008

In mid-November 2008 the Honolulu Advertiser reported that the FBI is investigating a scam whereby Hawaiian Kingdom bonds are being sold to people for use in paying off mortgages. Several foreclosures have resulted when people stopped paying their mortgages because they “paid” their debt by using the bonds. Andrew Walden has published a major article in Hawaii Free Press exposing the names of individuals and Hawaiian sovereignty groups which the mainstream media seem to be concealing. See:

Thurston Twigg-Smith book on Hawaiian sovereignty available free on internet

Thurston Twigg-Smith is the grandson of Lorrin A. Thurston, a major leader of the revolution which overthrew the Hawaii monarchy in 1893.  Mr. Twigg-Smith’s book, “Hawaiian Sovereignty: Do the Facts Matter?” provides historical details and a valuable perspective.  Two chapters are of special relevance today:  Chapter 9 (land) and Chapter 10 (the 1993 apology resolution).  Those chapters deserve careful reading in view of the U.S. Supreme Court decision to consider the state’s appeal of the Hawaii Supreme Court decision that the state is prohibited from selling any ceded lands until the claims of ethnic Hawaiians have been resolved — the Hawaii court based its decision largely on the 1993 apology resolution.  Mr. Twigg-Smith has generously agreed to have his entire book posted on the internet in pdf format, so that anyone can read it free of charge.  Click this URL, or copy and paste it into your browser, to download the book:
