Police stand by as activists break into Iolani Palace, armory

by Malia Zimmerman

Admission Day, Friday August 15 was supposed to be the celebration of the 49th year of Hawaiian statehood. But there was no parade, there were no special American events, and there was no celebration of America.

The 25-member group included an estimated 20 “guards” dressed in red tee shirts, a couple proclaiming themselves “King Akahi Nui” and “Queen Akahi Wahine”, and a man dressed in a black suit claiming to be the Kingdom of Hawai`i representative to the United Nations.

Global Warmers: Children must die

by Maureen Martin and Aleks Karnick

Are global warming alarmists encouraging children to commit suicide because their carbon footprints supposedly are harming the planet?

It certainly appears so in a children’s game concocted by the state-funded Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s Science Department, available online.

The game is called “Planet Slayer”. Using it, children can calculate their carbon footprint--how much impact their carbon emissions allegedly have on global warming. The purpose for doing so, children were told in a version of the game that was online in early June, is so they can “find out what age you should die at so you don’t use more than your fair share of Earth’s resources.”
