Senate Indian Affairs Committee to vote on Akaka Bill Thursday

The US Senate Indian Affairs Committee will be voting on the 2011 version of the Akaka Bill, S 675, Thursday.  This version contains all of the instant tribal sovereignty provisions which forces Governor Lingle and Attorney General Bennett to oppose the Akaka Bill in 2010.  These are of course designed to give legal immunity to drug dealers, mortgage scammers, corrupt “Broken” trustees, and other OHA operatives.  The formation of the Akaka Tribe would exclude over 73% of Native Hawaiians from participation.

There will be no formal hearing before the committee. In the past such testimony has given clues about divisions among the thieves attempting to steal the Hawaiian patrimony for themselves.

If the Committee votes in favor of S 675, it will be forwarded to the full Senate for a vote.  The US Senate has never approved any version of the Akaka Bill and several GOP Senators are likely to block any attempt to bring the bill to the floor for a vote.

The Akaka Bill will also have to gain passage in the US House.  The House Natural Resources Committee is chaired by Rep Doc Hastings (R-WA), who is strongly opposed to the new version of the bill.

At the behest of then-Rep Neil Abercrombie, the US House has passed the 2010 “instant immunity” version of the Akaka Bill on his last day in Congress. 

But after failing to win passage in the US Senate, the bill would have to work its way through a Congress now controlled by Republicans who are committed to saving Hawaii and Hawaiians from their corrupt overlords.
