Chelsea Manning Art Portrait

Chelsea Manning Art Portrait by Michael Daly Artist 2015

When those in media, business and government who so deceptively and deliberately lead the wrongful invasions there during early 2000s, and unleashed a false War on Terror – and while similar criminal leaders of authority carry on these gross acts against International Law today – while they are free, and free to profit in this way, and Manning is confined to jail, then lawlessness prevails and the terms ‘leader’ and ‘authority’ are misapplied.

Timely Conniving – Public Holidays, Public Statues and the US Hawaiian Occupation

Independence Day is probably the most important of public holidays in the Hawaiian Kingdom calendar since 1843 when King Kamehameha III proclaimed it. But since the USA invasion and occupation the day has been suppressed. The imposed USA Thanksgiving Day holiday overshadows it.

Public Forum, a Safe Zone, a Declaration for Free Speech

The Public Forum safe zone campaign is falling under a general public protection declaration that also includes a sister campaign for a safe zone for homeless. The latter is called the Emergency Shelter Safe Zone. Individuals or groups can use one or both signs to display in a public place where they declare there rights to free speech and/or emergency rest. People can declare that they’re in a safe zone to city and police workers who approach them. If they are arrested, harassed or have property searched or taken they will be able to register the incident on line for a common law suit. The registration site is not yet active but I will link to it when available.

APEC Summit 2011-Honolulu Police announce “Operation Sidewalk Sweeper”

The corporate assault on free speech is an attack on individuality and the basic right to produce expression and income that is not controlled by corporations. This is not a matter of street artists taking consumer money from business tenants because street artists manufacture visitor interest and increase overall spending in Waikiki. Similar colour and carnival street promotions such as block parties and Aloha Festival events can run the taxpayer $500k and up. Presently the artists and entertainers are free every nite, except carnival nites – yet still abused, ignored, criminalized and made unwelcome.

The Art of Truth and Marriage in the Military

Josh & Heather Wedding illustration by Michael Daly

It sounds awfully complex that simple truth in the military affects the very fabric of the institution. Again, this aspect of truth in Government goes to the heart of why Bradley Manning is subject to punishment and inhumane treatment in solitary confinement in a U.S. brig without a trial.

New Year`s Post Card II

This chap was swimming around with me out there in the fresh waters of Waikiki. I was taken by the arrival of Mr. Fat the Monk Seal on New Year’s Day. That was most unusual. So to meet Mr Sea Turtle in virtually the same location around the same time was a heartening delight.
