Cult Busted: Gabbard Financier Charged with Killing, Injuring Divers with Speedboat

An alleged member of Tulsi Gabbard’s Hare Krishna cult has been charged for running over and killing a diver in Kailua Bay and injuring another diver with a speedboat.  

HNN February 4, 2016 reports:

The state Department of Land and Natural Resources has filed a criminal complaint against the driver of the boat that killed a Kailua diver last month.

Forty-one year-old Sai Hansen of Kailua was cited today for operating a motor vessel without a license. If convicted, he faces up to a year in prison and a $1,000 fine.

Hansen was the driver of the 24-foot zodiac that struck and killed 59-year-old Sri Shim on Jan. 9. His hanai son Trey Albrecht was also hit and suffered severe cuts to his arm.

“There's been numerous complaints about this orange zodiac speeding around the bay, up and down Lanikai and he's been a real hazard to swimmers,” said Brian Amona, a longtime friend of the Shim family….

Friends and family of the victim wonder why it took nearly a month for this criminal complaint to be filed. …

Hansen will make his initial appearance at Kaneohe District Court on Feb. 16….

Sai Hansen has repeatedly been identified in published reports as an alleged member of the so-called ‘Science of Identity’ cult controlled by aging red diaper baby Chris Butler.  Leading cult members include US Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard and her father State Senator Mike Gabbard. 

The Gabbards’ anti-GMO activism serves to drive consumers to spend money at so-called natural stores such as the ‘Down to Earth’ chain which is allegedly owned and operated by cult members.

Gabbard’s repeated challenges to President Barack Obama’s handling of Middle-Eastern affairs are oriented to support the foreign policy of India.  After Gabbard’s 2014 trip to New Delhi, Butler senses he might obtain the long elusive recognition from mainstream Hinduism by directing Tulsi to kiss up to the Hindu nationalist government of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Earlier cult activities in Central Asia include running billions of dollars of drugs from Afghanistan to the US West coast in partnership with the Taliban.

According to media reports, Kailua Bay users have complained about cult members speeding powerboats in areas thick with swimmers, surfers and divers.

Ian Lind February 1, 2016 explains:

A series of anonymous but detailed online articles have linked the alleged driver and the owner of a zodiac involved in a fatal boating incident in Kailua last month to a cult with numerous ties to Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard….

Hawaii News Now reported last month that the alleged driver of the zodiac was well known for operating the craft dangerously in waters off Kailua and Lanikai (“Boat operator in fatal Kailua boating accident known for speeding“).

Using the television station’s video of the boat apparently involved in the fatal incident, an online report identified the boat’s owner and driver as members of the Butler cult, and alleges Gabbard is a part of the cult’s inner circle.

An owner of another of the zodiacs associated with the Butler cult is named in one of the accounts as Nimai Titcomb, reportedly a nephew of President Obama’s high school friend and golfing buddy, Bobby Titcomb.

This Facebook comment thread is full of interesting allegations and observations….

Here is a video screen-cap of cult members unsafely piloting a similar boat at busy Lanikai Beach—courtesy of anti-cult site, ‘Flashlight on Roaches’ which includes the following information: 

Sai Hansen was a big contributor to Tulsi Gabbard ($5,000) plus another $7,500 to two candidates unfamiliar to most people in Kailua, Patrick Murphy of Florida and Stacy Lawson of California. Sai has no known source of income, so what is the source of these political funds? Perhaps Hawaii Political expert Bart Dame can explain the curious funding.

“…The Hansens: Michelle and Sai Hansen, who share an address in (yes) Kailua, zip code 96734, gave an additional $10,000, with each one maxing out. Who are they? Well, you can find a blog about a golf tournament between Sai Hansen, Mike Gabbard, and Eddie Tamayo. More importantly, Sai Hansen seems to work for the Ninjai Gang, some kind of anime–which is managed by the ubiquitous Mark Fergusson, also of Healthy’s, Down to Earth, etc. I seriously doubt that’s a coincidence…” From DailyKos – What is the matter with Kailua?

“…Sai and his wife came from Australia on Work visas and are now US citizens. Sai and Michelle Hansen contributed over $40,000 dollars to various political campaigns and maxed out their contribution to Tulsi Gabbard in 2011- 8000 dollars. They live hand to mouth and were not able to afford the money to take care of their injured cats initial vet bill. Only a $500.00 bill…”

When Mayor Billy Kenoi—a politician whose well-known gubernatorial aspirations were rendered out-of-synch by the defeat of Abercrombie--became too popular, a small portion of his corrupt doings were suddenly exposed and he was quickly eliminated as a political threat.

Polls show Tulsi Gabbard is the most popular politician in the state.  Her recent challenge to the Governor’s handling of the Dengue crisis indicates her Gubernatorial ambitions may not wait until 2022.

Will the old boys now direct their media to do a Kenoi-style take down of Gabbard?
