US illegal: History of rogue empire REQUIRING arrests in the present. Stealing Hawaii by backing US Empire and Dole’s sugar with US Marines, despite crystal-clear treaty to honor Hawaii’s sovereignty (4 of 11)

3-minute video: Police, Military – Was your Oath sincere?

2-minute video: US imperialism 1800 – 1900:

This article series is among hundreds in alternative media that explain, document, and prove that the United States continuously engage in the viciously destructive policies of a rogue state, with a required and obvious citizen response to call for arrests of those .01% leaders of these crimes centering in war, money, and corporate media lies. The eleven parts of this series are also from my paper on teaching critical thinking skills to high school students in classes of US History, Government, and Economics.

Eleven sections:

  1. Introduction to define ‘rogue state’ as perfect match with US illegal Wars of Aggression, Crimes Against Humanity, dictatorial government
  2. The US violated ~600 treaties with Native Americans to steal Native American land. A treaty is signed by a US President, approved by 2/3 vote of the US Senate, and under Article VI of the US Constitution becomes US “supreme Law.” These ongoing “in your face” violations of “supreme Law” became the precedent to typical hypocritical and unlawful US policies of the present.
  3. US President Polk lied to Congress (with their approval) to initiate War of Aggression on Mexico. The result was the US illegally stealing 40% of Mexico in 1848. Congress opposed Abraham Lincoln’s crystal-clear explanation as a member of Congress that the Adams-Onís Treaty placed the so-called “border dispute” 400 miles within land forever promised to Mexico and forever promised as outside any US claim.
  4. The US violated our treaty with Hawaii and stole their country in 1898.
  5. The US reneged on promises of freedom after the Spanish American War to impose colonialism on the Philippines, and install US-friendly dictators in Cuba. US military slaughtered resisters, calling them yesterday’s version of “terrorists.”
  6. The US entered WW1 upon no national security threat to the US, and imprisoned the 3rd party presidential candidate for challenging “official reasons” for war.
  7. The CIA had several covert wars; perhaps most important in today’s context of war on Iran: “Operation Ajax” that overthrew Iran’s democracy and installed a US-friendly and brutal dictator.  When that dictator was overthrown and Iran refused another, the US aided Iraq to unlawfully invade and attack Iran from 1980-1988; killing up to a million Iranians. If the US lied and acted twice to unlawfully overthrew Iran’s democracy within many of our own lifetimes, shouldn’t we assume first another lie-started unlawful war today?
  8. The Vietnam War followed US permission to cancel the election to unify the country. The US stopped democracy to keep a friendly government, and perhaps to have ongoing live weapons testing and development. War escalated with the Gulf of Tonkin incident,  deliberate provocation to manipulate a false-flag event for “defensive” war.
  9. Perhaps most disturbing is the King Family civil suit that found the US government guilty in the assassination of Dr. King (and here). Corporate media, including our text publishers, omit this history. The King family’s conclusion is that Martin was assassinated to prevent his “Occupy DC” plan beginning for the summer of 1968 to end his version of today’s wars.
  10. We now know from Congressional reports that all “reasons” for war with Iraq were known to be false as they were told.
  11. The two “reasons” for war with Iran are as false as the “reasons” for war with Iraq: Iran never threatened Israel, and Iran’s nuclear energy and medicine programs are IAEA-verified as completely safe and lawful.

Stealing Hawaii by backing US Empire and Dole’s sugar with US Marines, despite crystal-clear treaty to honor Hawaii’s sovereignty (4 of 11)

“Tis strange — but true; for truth is always strange; Stranger than fiction.”            – Don Juan, Canto XIV.

The US overthrew the Hawaiian government in 1893 and then annexed the territory against Hawaiian will in 1898. This was in clear violation of treaty, admitted as an unlawful war by US President Cleveland in 1893, and that the “provisional government” created by US oligarchs was both wrong and racist:

“By an act of war, committed with the participation of a diplomatic representative of the United States and without authority of Congress, the Government of a feeble but friendly and confiding people has been overthrown. 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. The provisional government has not assumed a republican or other constitutional form, but has remained a mere executive council or oligarchy, set up without the assent of the people. It has not sought to find a permanent basis of popular support and has given no evidence of an intention to do so. Indeed, the representatives of that government assert that the people of Hawaii are unfit for popular government and frankly avow that they can be best ruled by arbitrary or despotic power.”

Because Congress had the votes and approval of President McKinley in 1898, the US annexed Hawaii. One hundred years later, the US Congress and President Clinton passed Public Law 103-150 in full admittance that the US unlawfully overthrew Hawaii’s government:

Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

The Congress

– apologizes to Native Hawaiians on behalf of the people of the United States for the overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii on January 17, 1893

What was missing in this 1993 “apology,” of course, is the basis of democratic institutions: full communication of this admission to Hawaiians for their consideration and vote whether they prefer to remain within the US, or once again be an independent nation. This was also missing in the 1959 “vote” with the false choice for Hawaii to become a US state, or remain its territory:

One of the many obligations as stated in U.N. Resolution 742 in 1953 declares that one of the “factors indicative of the attainment of independence or of other separate systems of self-government,” is “freedom of choosing on the basis of the right of self-determination of peoples between several possibilities including independence.”

There is nothing to suggest that Hawaii’s plebiscite, offering only a choice between “statehood” or “to remain a territory,” fulfills the international mandate. Also, there is little to suggest that residents of Hawaii were properly educated on the process or understood the importance of the plebiscite and what rights were available to the population. As the state insists that 94% of the voters voted for statehood, nowhere do they mention that of those eligible to vote, only 35% actively voted for statehood, as most Hawaii residents did not vote.

The synopsis of the first link in this section for the reasons the US oligarchy violated treaty to steal Hawaii: US Empire expansion with an important naval harbor, and US corporate profits through tropical crops (principally sugar at that time). And again, if history became clear that the US routinely violates treaties with US presidents in the lead using military to dominate others, would you view our world in the present differently regarding US presidents’ use of military?

    This did not go unnoticed by Smedley Butler in 1933. War is the reason for taxes, to support the owners’s decisions to wage war and expand empire their empire. The US has always played for the owners.

    Nation of Lies, Empire of Deceit, Just like the rest of the “West”

    Alexander Hamilton created the banking system of the United States on the template of the European owners without the limitations of Monarchy or a House of Lords and continued the capitalist system of European elites, of which our laws are based on. He argued against the bill of rights as being unnecessary and even dangerous. With European ownership financing, Alexander Hamilton founded the Bank of New York. Just like the Bank of England that Hamilton used as a template, the “US Treasury” has always been a private institution for profit. In 1791 the Bank of the United States was founded, with foreign interests as main owners. Hamilton He died in a gun battle with Aaron Burr, who founded Bank of Manhattan with Kuhn Loeb financing.

    The Bank of the United States started with capitalization of $10 million, $2 million of which was owned by the government and the remaining $8 million by private, and mostly foreign investors. The size of its capitalization made the Bank not only the largest financial institution, but the largest corporation of any type in the new nation. The bank’s sale of shares was the largest initial public offering (IPO) in the country to date. Many of the initial investors were foreign, a fact that did not sit well with many Americans, even though the foreign shareholders could not vote. The IPO did not offer shares for immediate delivery but rather subscriptions, or “scrips,” that acted as a down payment on the purchase of bank stock. When the bank subscriptions went on sale in July 1791, they sold so quickly that many would-be investors were left out, prompting fierce bidding in the secondary market for scrips.

    Eventually, US Inc., will merge with other Nations Inc., and will be run out of the Tower of Basel, the one bank that rules World Inc.

    All truths are not self evident. Many have been manufactured for the owners. In the last century, we have found that physics and mathematics don’t work at times of great deceit. Rules governing queuing theory, conservation of momentum, direction and even a straight line have been proven false by the powers that be.

    Thomas Jefferson said : “I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. Already they have raised up a money aristocracy that has set governments at defiance. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people to whom it properly belongs”.

    Andrew Jackson said : “If Congress has a right, under the Constitution to issue paper money, it was given them to use by themselves, not to be delegated to individuals or corporations.”

    The Commies babble about the supreme law the land hundred years ago while Pres. Obama violates the supreme law land every day. The overthrow the Hawaiian monarchy was totally legitimate, was one of the most peaceful revolutions against a monarchy in the history of the world, no one died. Everyone supported the revolution, except those who supported the corrupt Queen who was trying to do away with property rights of all non-Hawaiians, import opium, import gambling, and all the other evils that go with that. In 1894 three quarters of the Hawaiian population were non-Hawaiian. Hawaii needs to Secede from the United States and Become a Republic again, all this Babbling about returning to a monarchy is absurd, there are not even 1000 pure blooded Hawaiians left anywhere in the world

    Look up the term ‘hypocrite’…..

    There’s a picture of America and Israel.
