Benjamin Fulford Excerpt: "We Must All Push" -- April 24, 2017

Weekly geo-political news and analysis

Message from Benjamin Fulford

We must all push to make sure the criminal US corporate government is shut down on May 1st

Posted by benjamin
April 24, 2017



Although hard experience has taught me not to fixate on particular dates, multiple independent sources are all saying something huge might happen on May 1st. In the corporate propaganda media this is the day when a US government shut down will happen unless the debt ceiling is raised.

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-04-21/trump-administration-begins-quiet-preparations-government-shutdown

It is also the day when Puerto Rico, a wholly owned subsidiary of the US corporate government, is expected to go bankrupt.

http://www.reuters.com/article/us-puertorico-debt-bankruptcy-analysis-idUSKBN17E0GN

Sources in the CIA, the gnostic Illuminati, Japanese military intelligence and the Pentagon say this is the day when the world has a fighting chance to permanently shut down the US corporate government and re-establish the Republic of the United States of America known popularly as “the gold ole USA.”

The White Dragon Society is lobbying the US corporate government’s main creditors, Japan and China, to not grant the corporate government any more extensions as long as they remain under Khazarian mafia control. They are being told the controlled demolition of the US corporate government would end financing for endless wars, Daesh, false flag terrorism, the spread of bio-weapons etc. etc.

The Khazarian mafia has become what can only be described as institutionally insane in recent days as the bankruptcy deadline looms. Recent attempts to start World War 3 in Syria and North Korea are being followed up with repeated threats of nuclear and bio-terror and such insanity will no doubt continue until they are permanently put out of business.

It is no coincidence that a new head of the Knights of Malta will be selected on April 29th, just before the US Corporation’s bankruptcy deadline. The Grand Master of the Order, Mathew Festing, was fired recently by the pope ostensibly in a dispute over condoms.

http://alcuinbramerton.blogspot.jp/2017/02/in-knights-of-malta-land.html

However, sources in Japanese military intelligence, the Italian P2 Freemason Lodge and MI6 all confirm the fascist faction of the Knights of Malta, headed by Festing, was deeply involved in the March 11, 2011 tsunami and nuclear terror attack against Japan. The self-described Satanist Leo Zagami, who sent this writer e-mails threatening to sink Japan into the sea immediately after Fukushima, also claimed to be a leader of the Knights of Malta.

As a side note, a friend recently visited Fukushima with a Geiger counter and was unable to detect anything other than normal background radiation.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FMomGiER3OE&feature=youtu.be

In any case, The Knights of Malta, ostensibly a charitable organization, are the oldest military order in the Catholic Church and the fascist faction of that order has been secretly responsible for controlling world leaders through a combination of bribery, threats and murder. In other words, they have been one of the main the enforcement arms of the secret world government. They have also exercised strong influence over the US military as many top brass are Knights of Malta.

So, an election involving 60 knights will in fact have a decisive influence over the future of the planet, especially the USA.

In a related development, international fugitive Henry Kissinger contacted the WDS las week to say that...(Full Report Available Thursday)

Second Copy of the Declaration of Independence Found in British Archive

The second EVER copy of the Declaration of Independence is found hidden in a British archive after it was made for 'radical duke' who supported the American revolution

Harvard academics have discovered a second parchment copy of the Declaration of Independence at a records office in southern England.

The only other parchment copy is on display at the National Archives in Washington, DC, researchers Emily Sneff and Danielle Allen have said in a statement to the Boston Globe.

The newly discovered document has been dated to the 1780s and was found in the town of Chichester's archives.



Source: Daily Mail

'I was just looking for copies of the Declaration of Independence in British archives,' Sneff told the Guardian.

She became excited when she saw that the listing mentioned parchment - which suggests a special document and not a simple copy.

'I reached out to them a bit skeptically,' Sneff said. 'The description was a little vague but once we saw an image and talked to a conservator we started to get excited.'

'I was on pins and needles,' Allen recalled to the New York Times.

'I thought we would turn it over and the back would say, 'Ha, ha, we fooled you!' '

It is believed to have originally belonged to the Duke of Richmond, or the 'Radical Duke,' who left behind a legacy of advanced views on parliamentary reform.

'It would be nice to associate this document with the radical duke,' Sneff said.

During the Revolutionary War he gave significant support to the Americans, reported the Globe.

The document was most likely created in New York or Philadelphia, and researchers are trying to determine who wrote it and paid for it to be copied.

It is not an official government document, like the original, but a display copy likely created by a commercial clerk in the 1780's, reported the New York Times.

They believe that the document was probably commissioned by James Wilson of Pennsylvania.

HOW DID THE SECOND COPY END UP IN ENGLAND?

The rare second parchment was found at the West Sussex Record Office in Chichester.

Copies of the declaration made their way to England after the original 1776 signing.

But the Sussex Declaration was made sometime in the next decade.

Experts are still working to understand how the manuscript ended up in Britain.

They believe it came from a law firm connected with the dukes of Richmond.

Theorists think it was passed down to Charles Lennox, the third Duke of Richmond, by Thomas Paine - an American political activist who was one of the Founding Fathers.

Lennox was a peer of George III and was called 'the radical duke' because he supported American colonists in their rebellion against the king and parliament.

The document was moved to West Sussex in 1956.

The signatories on the Sussex version of the document are not broken down by state, unlike the National Archives copy, researchers said.

Instead, the 56 signatures were done in a seemingly random order, which, researchers argue points to Wilson.

The copy is, otherwise, strikingly similar in appearance to the 1776 version.

Their team is working with British officials to test the document in the safest way possible so as to not damage the parchment.

Wilson worked with others on the original draft of the Constitution, and was one of the first justices appointed to the Supreme Court.

'The team hypothesizes that this detail supported efforts, made by Wilson and his allies during the Constitutional Convention and ratification process, to argue that the authority of the Declaration rested on a unitary national people, and not on a federation of states,' the researchers wrote in a statement to the Globe.

They believe that Wilson wanted to influence the debate over the Constitution, which is why he had the copy made, and could help to answer the question at the core of American politics regarding whether or not the country was founded by a united nation of people or a collection of states.

Wendy Walker, West Sussex County archivist, told MailOnline: 'We are looking forward to seeing the results of the hyperspectral imaging work and other analyses later in the summer.

'We are delighted to be working with Harvard, the Library of Congress and the British Library to find out more about this fascinating document and welcome this interest in the West Sussex archives.'

Ancient Stone Carvings Confirm Comet Struck Earth in 10,950 BC and Sparked the Rise of Civilizations

Source: Telegraph | by Sarah Knapton

Experts at the University of Edinburgh analysed mysterious symbols carved onto stone pillars at Gobekli Tepe in southern Turkey, to find out if they could be linked to constellations.

The markings suggest that a swarm of comet fragments hit Earth at the exact same time that a mini-ice age struck, changing the entire course of human history.

Scientists have speculated for decades that a comet could be behind the sudden fall in temperature during a period known as the Younger Dryas. But recently the theory appeared to have been debunked by new dating of meteor craters in North America where the comet is thought to have struck.

However, when engineers studied animal carvings made on a pillar – known as the vulture stone – at Gobekli Tepe they discovered that the creatures were actually astronomical symbols which represented constellations and the comet.

The idea had been originally put forward by author Graham Hancock in his book Magicians of the Gods.

Using a computer programme to show where the constellations would have appeared above Turkey thousands of years ago, they were able to pinpoint the comet strike to 10,950BC, the exact time the Younger Dryas begins according to ice core data from Greenland.

The Younger Dryas is viewed as a crucial period for humanity, as it roughly coincides with the emergence of agriculture and the first Neolithic civilisations.

Before the strike, vast areas of wild wheat and barley had allowed nomadic hunters in the Middle East to establish permanent base camps. But the difficult climate conditions following the impact forced communities to come together and work out new ways of maintaining the crops, through watering and selective breeding. Thus farming began, allowing the rise of the first towns.

Edinburgh researchers said the carvings appear to have remained important to the people of Gobekli Tepe for millennia, suggesting that the event and cold climate that followed likely had a very serious impact.

Dr Martin Sweatman, of the University of Edinburgh's School of Engineering, who led the research, said: "I think this research, along with the recent finding of a widespread platinum anomaly across the North American continent virtually seal the case in favour of (a Younger Dryas comet impact).

"Our work serves to reinforce that physical evidence. What is happening here is the process of paradigm change.

"It appears Göbekli Tepe was, among other things, an observatory for monitoring the night sky.

"One of its pillars seems to have served as a memorial to this devastating event – probably the worst day in history since the end of the ice age."

Gobekli Tepe, is thought to be the world's oldest temple site, which dates from around 9,000BC, predating Stonehenge by around 6,000 years.

Researchers believe the images were intended as a record of the cataclysmic event, and that a further carving showing a headless man may indicate human disaster and extensive loss of life.

Symbolism on the pillars also indicates that the long-term changes in Earth's rotational axis was recorded at this time using an early form of writing, and that Gobekli Tepe was an observatory for meteors and comets.

The finding also supports a theory that Earth is likely to experience periods when comet strikes are more likely, owing to the planet's orbit intersecting orbiting rings of comet fragments in space.

But despite the ancient age of the pillars, Dr Sweatman does not believe it is the earliest example of astronomy in the archaeological record.

"Many paleolithic cave paintings and artefacts with similar animal symbols and other repeated symbols suggest astronomy could be very ancient indeed," he said.

"If you consider that, according to astronomers, this giant comet probably arrived in the inner solar system some 20 to 30 thousand years ago, and it would have been a very visible and dominant feature of the night sky, it is hard to see how ancient people could have ignored this given the likely consequences."

The research is published in Mediterranean Archaeology and Archaeometry.

Unusual Structures and Passageways Discovered on the Moon



Source: Collective Evolution | by Arjun Walia

Members of the Society For Planetary SETI Research (SPSR) have recently published a paper in the Journal of Space Exploration about certain features on the far side of the moon that appear in the crater Paracelsus C. Titled "Image Analysis of Unusual Structures on the Far Side of the Moon in the Crater Paracelsus C," it argues that these features might be artificial in origin, meaning someone other than a human being built them and put them there.

Contrary to popular belief, reports of artificial structures on the moon are both common and persistent. Among the first were from George Leonard's 1976 book, Somebody Else is on the Moon, and Fred Steckling's 1981 book, We Discovered Alien Bases on The Moon. There are many more, and from many credible sources, which we will get to later in the article.

During the early years of SETI, in 1963, even Carl Sagan spoke about the possibility of extraterrestrial visitation:

It is not out of the question that artifacts of these visits still exist, or even that some kind of base is maintained (possibly automatically) within the solar system to provide continuity for successive expeditions. Because of weathering and the possibility of detection and interference by the inhabitants of the Earth, it would be preferable not to erect such a base on the Earth's surface. The Moon seems one reasonable alternative. Forthcoming high resolution photographic reconnaissance of the Moon from space vehicles – particularly of the back side – might bear these possibilities in mind. (source)

This new study describes how they discovered seven Apollo-15 and four Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) images of the same enigmatic objects in the moon crater Paracelsus C, and how they differ significantly from the rocks scattered around and within the majority of craters on Luna.

Drawing from multiple images taken at different times of the lunar day, and from different sun angles, the authors point out how it's possible to predict an approximate shape for the objects by using shape-form-shading software. This type of 3D rendering has allowed them to fly around the site in order to see how odd the objects look in their location within the south-west quadrant of the crater, which is approximately 24km in diameter. The question the scientists now ask is, are these objects artificial? If so, when were they manufactured, and by whom? They emphasize that a rover mission to Paracelsus C would probably provide some very interesting answers.

The study concludes by stating that, "Based on the evidence presented in this paper we believe this area in Paracelsus C is one such candidate that is worthy of future study by orbital missions and surface rovers. Both of the features analyzed in this area are statistically different from the surrounding terrain."

Carl Sagan argued that deviations like these are a necessary (though insufficient) condition of intelligent activity. What's also interesting to note about Sagan is that he was accused, by multiple colleagues, of assisting the elite with the extraterrestrial coverup. You can read more about that allegation here.

Another great point the authors make deals with scientific fraud, which is something we see today in all realms of research, from health to climate change. The politicization of science is a real problem in the modern day world, and the study authors point out how it is impeding efforts to learn more about outer space:

A decidedly conservative mainstream scientific establishment often rejects anomalies based on subject matter alone, i.e., there cannot be alien artifacts on the moon because there are no alien artifacts on the moon (or other planets). Such a view is an example of circular reasoning, based on the belief that extraterrestrials do not exist, or if they do exist that they could not have traveled to our solar system.

What Could They Be? Here Are the Images


One of the authors, Mark Carlotto, an image scientist with 30 years of experience in satellite remote sensing and digital image processing, studied optics, signal, and image processing at Carnegie-Mellon University from 1972-1981, where he received his Ph.D. in electrical engineering. He's had several positions in academia and industry. Here are some of the peer-reviewed papers he's authored and c0-authored prior to this one.

In the video below, as well as in the paper, he outlines how these lunar features look like "unusual structures" and even "passageways":

By combining multiple images, we show the larger feature, oriented in a northeast/southwest direction, is not simply a wall but two walls on either side of a narrow valley or "passageway". Using single image shape from shading and 3D terrain visualization we show in a computer-generated perspective view looking northeast that the southwest end appears to be the entrance to the passageway. A reverse angle view looking southwest shows the passageway ending at a rise of terrain at the other end, possibly leading underground. The terrain surrounding the two structures is not flat but appears "excavated" by some unknown mechanism, natural or artificial. It is shown that these objects are visually different from the lunar background because their underlying structure is different. (source)



More Strange Oddities on the Moon

"Ladies and gentlemen, my government, NASA, which many of us in the United States say stands for Never A Straight Answer, proceeded to erase 40 rolls of film of the Apollo Program — the flight to the Moon, the flight around the Moon, the landings on the Moon, the walking guys here and there. They erased, for Christ's sake, 40 rolls of film of those events. Now we're talking about several thousand individual frames that were taken that the so-called authorities determined that you did not have a right to see. Oh, they were 'disruptive,' 'socially unacceptable,' 'politically unacceptable.' I've become furious. I'm a retired Command Sergeant Major. I was never famous for having a lot of patience." (source)

The quote above is from Bob Dean, a retired U.S. Army Command Sergeant Major who also served at the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) of NATO as an intelligence analyst.

Even the Russian government called for an international investigation into the U.S. moon landings about the disappearance of film footage, as well as 400 kilograms of lunar rock that were obtained from multiple lunar missions. You can read more about that here.

On top of that we have comments from several astronauts, including Dr. Edgar Mitchell, the 6th man to walk on the moon, alluding to the fact that our government already knows we are not alone:

Read the books, read the lore, start to understand what has really been going on, because there is no doubt that we are being visited. . . . The universe that we live in is much more wondrous, exciting, complex and far reaching than we were ever able to know up to this point in time. . . . [Mankind has long wondered if we're] alone in the universe. [But] only in our period do we really have evidence. No, we're not alone. (source)

"I happen to be privileged enough to be in on the fact that we have been visited on this planet and the UFO phenomenon is real, although it's been covered up by governments for quite a long time. Yes there have been crashed craft, and bodies recovered. We are not alone, they have been coming here for a long time." (source)(source)(source)(source)

– Dr. Edgar Mitchell, ScD., NASA astronaut

Here is a clip of NASA astronaut Dr. Brian O'Leary saying the same thing.

Even the Deputy Manager of the Clementine Mission to the Moon, which was part of a joint space project between the Ballistic Missile Defence Organization (BMDO) and NASA that discovered water at the Moon's poles in 1994, said that it was really a photo reconnaissance mission to check out strange objects on the far side of the moon. He's also stated that he has seen pictures of multiple artificial structures on the moon that aren't ours, arguing that there is no way we could build such things and that someone else is up there. (Source: page 16 of 18)(source)(source)

He currently works as a consultant to Morningstar Applied Physics. Here is one of his latest research endeavours.

Not long ago, he gave a lecture showing evidence for the existence of an intelligent civilization existing on Mars long ago, as well as, according to him, definitive proof that the giant face and pyramid found on Mars in 1976 were constructed by intelligent life: "Secrecy in government is an evil which is sometimes necessary, but I think it's a good thing that this coverup on Mars is ending, and, hopefully at some point we can sit down and have a frank conversation, not about what happened on Mars 250 million years ago, but what is happening right now."

You can watch his full lecture here.

Dr. Norman Bergrun, who worked for Ames Research Laboratory, NACA (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics), and Lockheed Missiles and Space Company, now known as Lockheed Martin, has accused NASA of "garbling" images to hide certain things, in this interview. You can see the full interview here.

He worked for NASA for more than a decade, and you can view some of his publications for NASA here.

Another great example of witness testimony comes from Donna Hare, who had a secret clearance while she was working for the NASA contractor Philco Ford. She is one of hundreds of insider witnesses with a verified background that have come forward as part of Dr. Steven Greer's Disclosure Project in order to publicly testify about their experiences working within these sectors.

It was the job of her colleague to airbrush evidence of UFOs out of photographs before they were released to the public. (source)

Karl Wolf, another witness for Greer's Disclosure Project, who was with the USAF and held a top secret crypto clearance at Tactical Air Command in Langley AFB Virginia, was assigned to an NSA facility to do equipment repair, and came across an airman who told him about how they receive images from the lunar orbiter. He was told that they've discovered a base on the backside of the moon. Keep in mind, this was in 1965. Karl claims to have seen the mosaic which showed the base, geometric shapes, towers, spherical buildings, radar dishes, and other massive structures. He gave his testimony in Washington at the National Press Club more than a decade ago and you can watch it here.

Interesting to think about, isn't it? Thanks for reading.

Confronting a Tyrannical System without the Need to Fire a Single Shot



Source: Covert Geopolitics

If you take it to heart all that's been happening inside the United States, the European Union, and in the Middle East, you'll fall into a depression which you may not be able to recover in time.

Understand that inducing psychological stress on the population is one of the potent weapons of the enemy. Forcing you to raise the white flag of surrender by projecting their total control of the government and institutions should be too obvious by now.

We believe that the best response other than confronting the enemy head on would be to elevate ourselves into a winning position, and not stick around with the same system that they are already in full control of. It is absolutely unwise to try to reform a system that can be hijacked by any aggressive forces, anytime they want.

Establishing a parallel system that does away with all the limitations of the old, like the internet in lieu of the corporate media, is the only way to go.

Other options will surely come when the mind has rested. So, you may opt for a long vacation for the time being, like what Louis Marinelli of the Independent California Movement is doing.

The leader of 'Calexit' just announced he's abandoning the movement and settling permanently in Russia

Natasha Bertrand Apr. 17, 2017, 6:31 PM

The leader of California separatist group Yes California announced in a 1,600-word statement on Monday that he "intends to make Russia" his "new home" and is therefore withdrawing his petition for a "Calexit" referendum.


Louis Marinelli

Louis Marinelli, who has spearheaded the Calexit campaign since 2015, set up a makeshift embassy in Moscow in December in partnership with far-rightRussian nationalists who enjoy Kremlin support while promoting secessionist movements in Europe.

"I have found in Russia a new happiness, a life without the albatross of frustration and resentment towards ones' homeland, and a future detached from the partisan divisions and animosity that has thus far engulfed my entire adult life," Marinelli wrote on Monday. "Consequently, if the people of Russia would be so kind as to welcome me here on a permanent basis, I intend to make Russia my new home."

He added that he will "not return to California in the forseeable future," so "it is only proper" that he withdraw the Calexit ballot initiative petition and "allow a new petition, free from ties to me and drafted by others, to be resubmitted at future date of their choosing."

… "We don't think that Russia needs to be an enemy of California, or that it even is one to begin with," Marinelli said. "The idea that Russia is an enemy of the US — that's a Cold War mentality."

Marinelli, who campaigned for Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders but said he ultimately voted for President Donald Trump, described Yes California as a progressive initiative aimed at establishing a "liberal republic" independent of the United States… Marinelli reiterated on Monday that he does "not wish to live under the American flag," adding that his "frustrations" with the American political system have now pointed him toward Russia.

"I had long planned to eventually return to occupied California and struggle for her independence from the United States so we could build the kind of country that reflects our progressive values," Marinelli wrote. "However, while my frustration, disappointment and disillusionment with the United States remains, these feelings now point me in a different direction."

He added that he hopes that "after the false allegations about me vanish, and after this period of anti-Russian hysteria subsides," it will be "said of this campaign that we spoke the truth" and "set in motion a series of events that led California to independence from the United States."

The whole idea is not to fall to the "if you can't beat them, join them" trap. That's only reserved for the weak, and traitors to freedom and humanity itself.

We must take this opportunity to rise instead, and show the enemies of freedom what erect human beings are truly capable of. We should stop feeding evil and all that it represents, by creating another world of good and wise.

If in the course of living independently off-the-grid, the fascist corporate government will come knocking at your door, with the full intent of doing you harm — that should be the best time you give them hell. But before that even happens, you can increase your winnability by engaging a greater number of people into your cause.

Imagine, if others are seeing the benefits and real value of your efforts along the way, and be open to engage them in a collaborative fashion, you should be able to pack a bigger punch to the old system.

As long-time guests on this website have known, we are already making healthcare virtually free by employing eTherapy protocols described in our healthcare website. That should free everyone from the high costs of hospitalization and danger of mainstream medicine.

The delay in the constructions of nuclear fusion-fission hybrid system around the globe is not acceptable. Not everyone could replicate Keshe plasma systems.

However, one can also do a "brute force" approach and buy a complete industrial type HHO system; add a second alternator, or solar panels, to your car; explore the use of supercapacitors in parallel with the installed car battery, so that you can have enough DC power on demand, to split water into HHO gas and be free from oil cartels for good.

An independent food production can also be done with vertical farming for urban dwellers, and permaculture if adequate farmland is available.

Establishing a local exchange trading system [LETS] should facilitate the exchange of goods and services away from the bankers.

These three independent sources of food, healthcare, and energy alone are enough to free oneself from corporate tyranny which continue to plague the population. Having a parallel debt-free system for exchange should bankrupt the corrupt system for good.

Again, that's for people who are not ready yet for a protracted civil war, or when war veterans remain apathetic to the whole situation. A surgical covert operation targeting specific personalities would have been the most preferable course of action.

Nobody said that all of the above are going to be easy. No real revolution actually is. But there's nothing worse than prolonging the agony.

Kawananakoa Letter Debunks OHA LLCs Claim to be Immune from UIPA

By Andrew Walden @ 3:34 PM

Filing an April 5 open records request for the check registers and corporate records of the secretive LLCs owned by the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, attorneys representing Abigail Kawananakoa effectively debunk arguments used by the LLC lawyer Kimberly Greeley in opposition to an earlier open records request--which is still pending--from Hawai'i Free Press.

UPDATE: An April 20 response from Greeley includes the following: "The State of Hawaiʻi does not control, or direct any of the Companies’ activities or business affairs. The Companies’ activities are not a required function of any government agency."

Here are some excerpts and a link to the entire filing:

From: James H Wright, attorney representing Abigail Kawananakoa

Re: 92F Requests for government records to OHA's various LLCs


Dear Ms. Greeley: April 5, 2017 (excerpts)

My office represents Abigail K. Kawananakoa, an OHA beneficiary, who is deeply concerned with what appears to be a misuse and misdirection of trust funds by the Office of Hawaiian Affairs ("OHA") and its wholly owned subsidiary LLCs. In that capacity we have been following an attempt by the Hawai’i Free Press to obtain access to the government records of certain OHA-owned limited liability companies: namely Hi'ilei Aloha LLC ("Hi'ilei Aloha), Ho'okele Pono LLC ("Ho'okele Pono"), and Hi'ipaka LLC ("Hi'ipaka") (collectively, the "OHA LLCs"). We have also received a copy of your letter, dated January 9, 2017, denying the newspaper's various Haw. Rev. Stat. §92F requests on the grounds that the OHA LLCs are not government "agencies" subject to the open disclosure of records, within the meaning of the Hawai'i Uniform Information Practices Act, HRS Chapter 92F….

…In summary, your position is that, because "the State does not control, or direct any of the Companies' activities or business affairs, and does not provide any funding for the Companies ... the Companies are not, therefore subject to the provisions of the UIPA."

Based upon our independent investigation we respectfully disagree…. Because the OHA LLCs are owned, operated, and/or managed by OHA (which is clearly a governmental entity) they are required to follow the provisions of the Uniform Information Practices Act….

…Insofar as the OHA LLCs are owned by OHA, which is an agency of the State of Hawai'i, they are subject to the provisions of the Hawai' i Uniform Information Practices Act and must produce or make available the requested documents…..

…while management of the day-to-day operations of the OHA LLCs is vested with ORA's CEO, COO, and CFO, broader administrative-level decisions fall exclusively under the authority of the LLC's sole member, OHA…..

Your contention that the OHA LLCs are not supported by taxpayer funds and that, more specifically, the Office of Hawaiian affairs does not designate any of its operating funds for use by any of the Companies, is simply without merit. According to Hi'ilei Aloha LLCs' 2015 Form 990 informational tax return filed with the IRS, the organization has received a substantial portion of its annual operating budget from "gifts, grants, contributions, and membership fees." See Exhibit "E" at p. 15. In support of its claim to be a "public charity", Hi'ilei Aloha states that "the organization is not a private foundation because it is ... (7) an organization that normally receives a substantial part of its support from a governmental unit or from the general public .... " Id. at p. 14 (emphasis added). Similarly, a November 16, 2015 independent audit of Hi 'ilei Aloha concluded that "the Company receives and is dependent on financial support from OHA, while providing financial and administrative support and services to its sub-entities, enabling them to fulfill their missions. This in turn supports the mission of OHA." See Exhibit "C"….

Hi'ilei Aloha's most recently published annual report further states:

"We sincerely thank the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, our parent organization, without whom we would not exist. OHA's funding has allowed us to deliver the exciting and innovative services you will read about here."

"Hi'ilei also handles the creation of new LLCs as requested by OHA, of which five have been created since 2006."

"With funding from OHA, we launched a new program to help build capacity in Hawaiian organizations." ….

By admission of OHA and the OHA LLCs, it is abundantly clear that the OHA LLCs are very much dependent upon contributions from the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, a semiautonomous government agency which receives millions of dollars in annual funding from the Hawai'i State Legislature. Thus, your contention that the OHA LLCs are not supported by taxpayer funds is clearly erroneous….
