Obama Administration Seeks Race-Based Government In Hawaii

The move was announced Friday before Memorial Day--as always, around a holiday when people are preoccupied


President Barack Obama’s administration has quietly suggested it is willing to create a two-tier race-based legal system in Hawaii, where one set of taxes, spending and law enforcement will govern one race, and the second set of laws will govern every other race.

The diversity proposal is portrayed as an effort to create a separate in-state government for people who are “native Hawaiians.”

If Obama succeeds, “what’s to prevent creating similar [self-governing racial] groups out of say, Cajuns, or Orthodox Jews or Amish?” said Gail Heriot, a commissioner on the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights.

“If you can do that with groups that are already part of the mainstream, you can balkanize the country,” said Heriot, who is a law professor at the University of San Diego.

But the proposed measure to increase legal diversity is illegal because the president doesn’t have the power to grant one group of Americans the status of a separate government, she said.

“There is no constitutional basis for conferring such status, and Congress has repeatedly refused to confer this status,” said Carissa Mulder, a spokeswoman for two members of the federal Commission on Civil Rights.

“This seems to be yet another case of the Obama administration ignoring the law to achieve its policy objectives,” she added.

The Akaka bill, named after Sen. Daniel Akaka, a native Hawaiian senator, would have imposing variety on Hawaiians’ shared government, via the creation of a tribal government for Hawaiians.

That bill, which has failed to pass since 2010, would have converted Hawaiians’ status from normal Americans into to subgroup similar to American Indians

The Akaka bill would also have transferred the Hawaiian land to the new tribe, allowing it to be used to generate wealth via gambling and other businesses for racial Hawaiians

So in order to get this bill passed, many advocates are urging Obama to bypass the Congress--which is getting to be a habit of Obama

More division on Obama's part?
Or just a way for special groups to benefit monetarily over others?
Or none of the above?

I am...speechless.

This is such a bad idea in so many ways. Considering the Obama retirement estate is in Hawaii...I can see why he would want to establish himself as leader of the Hawaiian peoples before his term as president runs out.

I just can't believe the divisive way his twisted mind works.

I'm afraid that this will open a whole new door of problems overall
Not sure what Obama is thinking on this one...unless he's going to be getting something out of it, why bypass Congress on this particular issue??

Why bypass Congress on this issue? Special interests, as you pointed out. Lining his retirement pockets. Plus, since he plans on retiring in Hawaii, perhaps he's fantasizing of Hawaii seceding from the States...he has no real patriotism nor love for this Country....who knows.

He's a strange bird, spouting other people's words from a teleprompter. Who knows what really goes on in his warped mind. I personally feel if we could see inside it, we'd see a violent sea of rage. Rage that has driven him his whole life.

This is just exactly the same as has happened with Indian tribes.... which happened years ago.

What makes you think this is exactly the same as has happened with Indian tribes?

Is there exact language somewhere?

Dear President Obama:

We write as four members of the eight-member U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, and not on behalf of the Commission as a whole. We are writing to address media reports that you are considering implementing provisions of the Native Hawaiian Government Reorganization Act (known as the Akaka bill) through executive action. 1 The Commission held a hearing regarding the Akaka bill in 2006 and issued a report recommending against passage. 2 We are writing to reiterate the Commission’s recommendation. We believe that provisions of the Akaka bill are both unwise and unconstitutional. Executive action implementing provisions of the Akaka bill would be at least as unwise and unconstitutional.

Neither Congress nor the President has to power to create an Indian tribe or any other entity with the attributes of sovereignty. Nor do they have the power to reconstitute a tribe or other sovereign entity that has ceased to exist as a polity in the past. Tribes are “recognized,” not created or reconstituted. The federal government may on appropriate occasions assist tribes in transforming their internal political structure, but they cannot bring into existence a tribe or other sovereign entity that has never existed or has ceased to exist as a separate polity.

As we all know, Obama is not bashful about bypassing Congress when it suits him & his agenda
Since this has stalled in Congress for 4 years, the only way it will pass is via Exec. Order, so we shall see

This looks like the precursor to Sharia Law being accepted in the US. Just head off quietly create a two tier system while no one watches and later a some point allow Sharia in a highly populated city, then claim a two tier system is already working in Hawaii. Very sneaky.

What do they mean "racial Hawaiians"? They all live in the same state in America....I thought we were all the same....all equal? What a crock from these extremist loons.

If someone barged onto your property, took your land and your home wouldn't you be upset? The fact is that the Ha'oles invaded Hawaii and stole the land. The Hawaiians want it back. Obama will never be the leader for the Hawaiian people, he isn't Hawaiian and what a Hawaiian embodies. The Hawaiian people already have their elected leaders.
