So sorry, but I must disagree with language expert Terii_Kelii who says Lili'uokalani took care to protect peace and to behave in a careful and proper way. Perhaps Terii_Kelii, the language expert, is not aware of some well documented historical facts. (I also give Terii_Kelii my condolences for the broken 'okina on his/her typewriter.)

You make two sophomoric errors - one is not realizing my use of the old writing style as in newspapers of old and the song in the column, and second his egregious mistranslation of what I had said in Hawaiian. Again, you cannot speak Hawaiian and your lie that you speak it at an intermediate level is proven by these two errors of yours.

Terii_Kelii wrote:
his = YOUR egregious mistranslation. Oh and speaking of Hawaiian. Repeat all this nonsense you posted here in Hawaiian, KenKKonklin. You can't. So much for your false claim of speaking Hawaiian at an intermediate level of ability. me = 2 columns, you = 0.

In 1889 Liliuokalani backed a violent military coup against Kalakaua led by Robert Wilcox, which would have overthrown her brother Kalakaua and would have made herself reigning monarch. Men were killed, and part of the roof was blown off the Palace bungalow by a hand grenade. Lili'uokalani gave Wilcox free use of one of her houses for the coup-plotters to hold their meetings. Thus she was an unindicted co-conspirator in treason and murder.

Credible accounts point to the rebellion's attempt to rescind the Bayonet Constitution, not to overthrow Kalakaua and make Liliuokalani queen. Stop making up history as you go along.

and they met her house ... where she offered them tea and crumpets with reckless abandon. LAUGH. *sigh*

In 1893 U.S. Minister Willis, the envoy of President Grover Cleveland, tried to put Liliuokalani back on the throne. He met with Lili'uokalani repeatedly during Summer and Fall and proposed to her that if she would agree to give amnesty to the revolutionaries who had overthrown her, then he (Willis) would take that offer of amnesty to the leaders of the revolutionary Provisional Government to ask them to step down and reinstate her as Queen. When Willis asked her whether she would agree to those terms, she refused and said she would behead them and confiscate their property. She made that refusal and threat of beheading on three separate occasions. So of course Willis could not propose such a scenario to the Provisional Government. At the last moment, in December 1893, when the ship carrying her message of refusal was ready to sail to America, she sent a note to say she would agree to Willis' idea; but it was too late. Her bloodthirstiness and demand for revenge cost her the cooperation of Willis who wanted to help her regain the throne.

Current US law - 8 USC § 2381 - Treason establishes punishment for treason as death, and one way to do that is lethal injection which some consider inhumane. So what's your point?

In 1895 Liliuokalani once again supported the use of violence in the attempted counterrevolution by Robert Wilcox. Guns and bombs were hidden in the flower bed at her home (Washington Place). She had already written letters of appointment for cabinet ministers and department heads in her anticipated new government. Historian Gavan Daws describes it this way (Gavan Daws, "Shoal of Time" Honolulu: University of Hawai'i Press, 1974, pp. 282-283): "The grounds of her home at Washington Place were searched, and in the garden the searchers found what they were looking for -- a regular ammunition dump; twenty-one bombs, some of them made with coconut shells; more than thirty rifles; thirty-eight cartridge belts and about a thousand rounds of ammunition; and some pistols and swords." She said she knew nothing about it. Liar liar pants on fire! We know she knew about the attempted counterrevolution because she had already signed letters of appointment naming her new cabinet ministers to be installed as soon as Wilcox succeeded; the letters were found in her home and placed in evidence during her trial for misprision of treason.

yet you laud your white-skinned heros who were members of the Honolulu Rifles and who paraded US marines in front of the palace as some sort of peace keepers. Hypocrite much, KenKKonklin? of course you are.

That is the best you got? You spend an entire website devoted to Haunani-Kay Trask mentioning her PhD in political science, and then under this week's editorial about sovereignty you state in the comments that her PhD is in Women's Studies. Let's take a closer look at that mistake of yours then. Umm petty much, KenKKonklin? of course you are.

Supporters of hers tried to regain what was stolen by white men, largely foreigners by your own admission, with arms pointed at her palace. Did she point a weapon? No. So what's your point?

Ken_Conklin wrote:
TK: "Did she point a weapon? No. So what's your point?" I know both law and morality well enough to realize that someone need not point a weapon to be a murderer. Someone who hires a hit-man, or provides the weapon, is just as guilty as the person who points the weapon. So your knowledge of law and morality is just as deficient as your use of English.

but by your own admission she provided no weapons. Your words - "She said she knew nothing about them." hmph.

implying that the Queen was a traitor and lorren thursten, sanford dole and that gang were heroes is typical arrogant ha*le mentality and you konki are a effing hypocrite. the binding Restoration Agreement is STILL a binding agreement. see Larson Proceedings, acceptance of a "complaint" by the UN security Counsel, and a "Protest and Demand" by UN General Assembly, and accepting of "jurisdiction" of "war crimes" in these Islands by the ICC (International Criminal Court" and now the issue of that agreement has been in a dc court of appeals for two years.

amen! By KenKkonklin's own admission, the majority of those who overthrew the queen were foreigners who had the freedom to move elsewhere since they hated Hawaii so much, yet interfered in the sovereignty of a nation they swore no allegiance to.

Seven out of 13 members of the Committee of Safety, which organized the revolution, were native-born subjects of the Kingdom. That's a majority, contrary to the lie told by TK

WRONG - As you stated on June 3rd in the comments of the Kauakukalahale column, "7 of the 13 members of the revolution leadership "Committee of Safety" were native-born or naturalized subjects of the Kingdom, ..." The majority of the Committee of 13 were not native-born and were foreigners, but here you are stating right up above that 7 of the 13 were native-born subjects. So much for misspelling heros. You make far worse errors than a simple e will fix. And what is Haunani-Kay Trask's Phd? You have not gotten that straight yet either.

Yes, I should have said that 7 of the 13 were either native-born or naturalized (it was an error to say the 7 were all native born). Ralph S. Kuykendal, "The Hawaiian Kingdom" Volume 3 page 597 says: "The Committee of Safety as first appointed was composed of the chairman H.E. Cooper, F.W. McChesney, T.F. Lansing, and J.A. McCandless, who were Americans; W.O. Smith, L.A. Thurston, W.R. Castle and A.S. Wilcox, who were Hawaiian born of American parents; W.C. Wilder, American, C. Bolte, German, and Henry Waterhouse, Tasmanian, who were naturalized Hawaiian citizens; Andrew Brown, Scotchman, and H.F. Glade, German, who were not. After a day or two, Glade and Wilcox resigned, Glade because he had to return to Kauai; Ed. Suhr, a German, and John Emmeluth, an American, replaced them on the committee." So, according to Kuykendal, 7 of the original 13 were subjects of the Kingdom being either Hawai'i-born or naturalized.

Holokukae keeps demanding that I show the Treaty of Annexation, and I have done so many times. So now, in return, I demand that Holokukae show the alleged "binding Restoration Agreement." There isn't any.

konki you have never shown me a legally ratified annexation treaty, you are a liar. when you first referred me to your angelfire blog about this so called treaty I suggested to you to show it to the u.s.attorneys in the Sai v Hillary lawsuit. with that "treaty" if legally ratified would have been a slam dunk for the u.s. attorneys to have the lawsuit dismissed. either you did not take my advice or you did and the u.s. attorneys laughed in your face for such a stupid idea. so which was it konki you did not submit the "treaty" to the u.s. attorneys or they laughed in your face?

I cannot show that resolution other then refer you to Dr. Sai's writings and the proposed "concurrent resolution 107" which requested an investigation into that "agreement". the resolution did not make it out of committee and therefore there never was an honest debate/investigation on the agreement. I wonder why do you konki.

"the Sai v Hillary lawsuit" The judge dismissed that one. Sai lost, even without my help.

the case was dismissed for lack of jurisdiction because the u.s. attorneys argument was that the issue was a "POLITICAL QUESTION" and is now and has been in a dc appeals court for two years. I guess you konki did not give your "expert" advice to the u.s. attorneys about your claim of a "legally ratified annexation treaty". because if you did your "there is an annexation treaty" arguments would have been used by the u.s. attorneys instead of the "its a political question" argument. so I guess the answer to my question above is "THEY LAUGHED IN YOUR FACE".
