In all documentation relating to the ‘Hawaiian kingdom’ Edmund Keli’i Silva declares himself the lawful ‘king’ of Hawaii with this statement, “On November 22, 2002, the prime minister of the Hawaiian kingdom, the Council of Regency, Nā Kupuna Council O’ Hawai`i Nei, the Nā Kupuna Council Hawai`i Moku of the legislative body of government, and the Royal Kupunas of the House of Nobles, proclaimed that I am the lawful successor to Ali`i Nuis (High Chiefs) of ancient Hawaii`”.
He states that this is so because the ‘prime minister’ of the ‘Hawaiian kingdom’ proclaimed it so on November 22, 2002. Silva, however, neglects to mention the name of the pseudo ‘prime minister’ in his grand proclamation. This is a very deliberate omission on Silva’s part as this pseudo prime minister of the fictitious ‘Hawaiian kingdom” on November 22, 2002 is none other than the notorious conman, ‘Prime Minister and Regent Samuel Keolamauloa Kaluna, Jr, of the infamous Royal Kupuna Exchange.
Kauiliapele conveniently neglected to inform me and my readers of this fact when he wrote to me to inform me that Silva had no connection with Royal Kupuna Exchange.
The documentation which Kauilapele furnished me with, with the specific intention of disassociating Silva from the Royal Kupuna Exchange, included three affidavits. These affidavits were presented to me in Kauilapele’s email as if they were independent sources which could verify Silva’s non-association with the notorious Royal Kupuna Exchange. It was only through my own research that I discovered, in fact, that they were put together at the request of Lanny Sinkin, the pseudo attorney general of the fictitious Hawaiian kingdom, whose own sworn affidavit (also included in KP’s documentation and presented to me as verification that was independent of the pseudo Hawaiian Kingdom team) states “At my request, these individuals have prepared affidavits that, as to the best of their knowledge, Mr. Silva had no involvement with the Royal Kupuna Exchange.”
As I pointed out in my reply to Kauilapele “These affidavits were all written/adapted by the same person, (who it now appears likely is Sinkin — the pseudo attorney general of the kingdom of Hawaii). They were all notarised on the same date. The text is identical in places: they all say they met two individuals Samuel Keolamauloa Kaluna II and John Paki Dudoit, who introduced them to an individual called Dr. Senders who said he had real gold certificates which could be used to create currency within the Hawaiian islands and that when individuals eventually asked to see these gold certificates they were shown a poor copy of a homemade certificate. All three affidavits then state that it was then they decided to end their relationships with Dr. Senders as he had misrepresented himself.”
The three affidavits all contained the exact same wording in relation to Silva:“During this time period when I was in close contact with Samuel Keolamauloa Kaluna III and John Paki Dudoit representing the Royal Kupuna Exchange and backed by the alleged claim of possessing of real gold certificates from Dr. Senders, there was no other names or individuals discussed who were involved in this gold certificate scheme. “Therefore the man, Edmund Keli’i Silva Jr was not part of this group called ROYAL KUPUNA”
In my reply to Kauilapele, I informed him that “none of these affidavits have any relevance to my statement. The fact that these three individuals wrote these is of no legal consequence. They could not know from what they wrote in their affidavits whether Silva was or was not part of the Royal Kupuna Exchange. The affidavits only say that they did not hear his name mentioned. In fact, in an earlier part of his affidavit, in Article 37, George Edward Lake III’s states, “It was not until March 5, 2013 in a conference with Edmund K. Silva, Jr did I learn that he knew these two individuals Samuel Keolarauloa Kaluna II and John Pakii Dudoit,” which shows that Silva did indeed have a connection to the two above mentioned individuals involved in the Royal Kupuna Exchange at some time prior to 2013.”
Subsequently, I have unearthed a Press Release dated July 15, 2003 and grandly entitled “The Sovereign Kingdom of Hawaii Announces Independence from all Foreign Powers — A Declaration of Independence, authored by His Majesty Edmund Kelii Silva, Jr. and signed by Prime Minister and Regent Samuel Keolamauloa Kaluna, Jr. and the Hawaiian House of Nobles, [which] proclaims the Kingdom restored and states the intent of the Kingdom of Hawaii to purchase back its lands and govern them under an independent constitutional monarchy.”
This sworn affidavit below (and the two others notarized on the same date) clearly state that Samuel Keoamauloa Kaluna II and the Royal Kupuna Exchange were engaged in fraudulent activities in 2001 which prompted the three signatories of the affidavits to disassociate from Samuel Keoamauloa Kaluna II and the Royal Kupuna Exchange [See below: An excerpt from the Affidavit of George Edward Lake III dated March 10, 2013 which was notarised by Garry A. Vincent – Vincent also produced an affidavit for himself in relation to Silva and the Royal Kupuna Exchange which was notarized on the same date as Lake’s affidavit along with a third affidavit (that of Dudley Silva Kaleohano Kaae) all of which were written and sworn at the behest of Lana Sinkin, the pseudo ‘attorney general’ of the fictitious ‘Hawaiian kingdom’ and all presenting identical statements in relation to Silva -]:
21. It was during the time period of 2001 that I was introduced to Samuel Keolamauloa Kaluna II and John Paki Dudoit:
22. A friend asked if I knew these individuals;
23. I stated no;
24. My friend who stated that these individuals would like to share something about Hawaii and its history with me;
25. At our first meeting they asked if I had ever heard of the Royal Kupuna Exchange;
26. A third part was disclosed shortly thereafter;
27. Samuel Keolamauloa Kaluna II and John Paki Dudoit introduced me to an individual, who they referred to as Dr. Senders
28. Dr. Senders stated that he had real gold certificates that could be used to create currency within the Hawaiian Islands with the aid of the Royal Kupuna Exhange;
29. I did attend seminars over a period of time and I traveled to the Island of Oahu to meet with these three individuals
30. After a short period of seminars attend by Myself (George E Lake III) other individuals who requested to see the original gold certificate that Dr. Senders claimed to be in possession of’
31. He only provided a poor copy of an alleged gold certificate;
32. At that time I had stated to this group that I must end the relationship due the fact that Dr. Senders had misrepresented himself.
33. During this time period where I was in close quarters with Samuel Keolamauica Kaluna II, John Paki Dudoit representing the Royal Kupuna Exchange backed by alleged claim of possessing real gold certificates from Senders no other names or individuals were ever discussed.
35. Recently a very close friend asked if I could help his friend Edmund Silva Jnr. In the year 2012.
36. I happily agreed and gave some suggestions in handling some issues;
37. It was not until March 5, 2013 in a conference with Edmund K. Silva, Jr did I learn that he knew these two individuals Samuel Keolarauloa Kaluna II and John Pakii Dudoit.”
It is highly unlikely that Silva was unaware neither of the fraudulent activities of Samuel Keolamauloa Kaluna when he was associated with him in 2002 and when Kaluna, the then, pseudo Prime Minister of the fictitious Hawaiian Kingdom proclaimed him ‘king’ of the fictitious kingdom, nor when he was writing press releases for Samuel Keolamauloa Kaluna II in 2003 declaring the Sovereign Kingdom of Hawaii’s Independence from all Foreign Powers.
The scams perpetrated by Samuel Keomauloa Kaluna II and the Royal Kupuna Exchange were public knowledge in 2002 and had achieved much notoriety as an article published by the Star Bulletin (Feb 2002), an article by the Honolulu Advertiser  and the three sworn affidavits above attest: “In February 2002, authorities shut down the Royal Kupuna Exchange” amidst a flurry of publicity and the very public convictions of several of the Royal Kupuna Exchange con-artists.
In Lana Sinkin’s (the pseudo attorney general of the pseudo Hawaiian Kingdom) own sworn affidavit he testifies that, “a mutual friend suggested I call Mr. Kaluna regarding new efforts being made. Mr. Kaluna told me that he and the rest of the original delegation from our island had formed a government, issued a proclamation, adopted a constitution, and selected Edmund Keli’i Silva, Jr. as King. Mr. Kaluna asked me to get the King out of jail.” (The Mr. Kaluna mentioned here is, of course, Samuel Keolamauloa Kaluna, the then, pseudo Prime Minister of the pseudo Hawaiian Kingdom who was already by this stage notorious as a conman involved with the Royal Kupuna Exchange when he gave this order to Lana Sinkin to ‘get the King out of jail’.) The rest of Lana Sinkin’s affidavit is an obvious attempt to spin the whole story of Silva’s conviction for ‘theft by deception’ into a story of persecution by unnamed dark forces who wished to prevent the sovereignty of Hawaii being achieved.
Edmund Keli’i Silva, became a convicted felon in 1996, and served 12 years in a Colorado prison, for ‘theft by deception’ to the tune of $500,000. Again, this cold hard fact of his crime has been spun by documentation issued from the ‘Kingdom of Hawaii’ team and by a newspaper article, (which basically repeats Sinkin’s affidavit spin and appears very like a P.R. set up), so that the public are now supposed to accept Silva’s conviction as evidence that Silva is the true ‘king’ because he has been so persecuted. Silva admits to taking the money and he admits to not paying it back, so how his conviction can be presumed to be evidence that he is innocent is very strange indeed.
The fraud, however, seems set to continue.
Edmund Keli’i Silva’s current pseudo ‘legal’ representative and ‘Judge,’ Navin Naidu aka Dr. Aidun of the Neil Keenan Team (proclaimed thus by the non-existent ‘Kingdom of Hawaii even though he is not even an accredited lawyer), claims in his own sworn Affidavit to be a member of the American Bar Association even though the American Bar Association’s own copyrighted document refutes this. The Colorado Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel filed a petition for an injunction against Mr. Naidu and the ecclesiastical court, and the injunction was enforced less than two years ago (People v. Naidu, No. 12SA271 Colo. Filed Sept 18, 2012) with the consequences that Naidu is not entitled to attempt to practice law in the state. Naidu has admitted publically to taking $5,000 from numerous clients under very suspect conditions, a fact stated in the above mentioned American Bar Association/The Bureau of National Affairs own copyrighted document. Naidu has also cited, under oath in a sworn affidavit, a non-existent university as the alma mater where Silva alledgedly earned a PhD.
At this stage, I feel it is pertinent to mention here also, another statement from the pseudo attorney general of the pseudo Hawaiian Kingdom, Lanny Sinkin’s, affidavit. “My understanding is that the Royal Kupuna Exchange started out claiming to have gold certificates. When the certificates were revealed to be amateurish copies, the Exchange then claimed to be empowered to issue bonds backed by gold. The actual operation of the Exchange appears to have never been much more than a website that offered bonds supposedly backed by gold issued by people claiming to have restored the Kingdom of Hawai’i government.”
As Edmund Keli’i Silva and Navin Naidu aka Dr. Aidun appear to be prominent members of the Neil Keenan Team, I feel it is important to address a comment I received on my site yesterday. The comment refers to the ‘gold dollars’ which Neil Keenan was portrayed holding in his hand yesterday on his website. The comment points to the fact that the dollars appear to be identical to two novelty gold dollar bills which are available for sale on multiple websites such as Ebay, Amazon, Aliexpress and many more. On close examination the novelty dollars are identical to the ‘gold dollars’ Neil Keenan is holding in the picture displayed on his website.
NEIL KEENAN’S DOLLAR BILL
EBAY’S FAKE NOVELTY DOLLAR BILL
NEIL KEENAN’S DOLLAR BILL
EBAY’S NOVELTY FAKE DOLLAR BILL
It may be pertinent here again to repeat the statement from the affidavit of the pseudo attorney general of the pseudo Hawaiian Kingdom, Lanny Sinkin’s, affidavit. “My understanding is that the Royal Kupuna Exchange started out claiming to have gold certificates. When the certificates were revealed to be amateurish copies, the Exchange then claimed to be empowered to issue bonds backed by gold. The actual operation of the Exchange appears to have never been much more than a website that offered bonds supposedly backed by gold issued by people claiming to have restored the Kingdom of Hawai’i government.”
While trying to research Silva and Naidu I was, at first, amazed at how difficult it was to get a handle on their story. My research path met with an inordinate amount of obstacles — masses of misinformation, broken links, links removed, articles marked as spam etc. The above mentioned affidavit of the pseudo attorney general of the pseudo Hawaiian Kingdom, Lanny Sinkin, was helpful on shedding light on these obstructions: “I served as legal counsel to Edmund Keli’i Silva, Jr. for a number of years. I am writing to address the question of Mr. Silva’s involvement with the Royal Kupuna Exchange. The simple truth is that Mr. Silva had no knowledge of or involvement with the Royal Kupuna Exchange during the period the Exchange was active. When I brought the use of his name by the Exchange’s website to his attention, he directed me to take whatever measures I could to have his name removed from the website.
The affidavit outlines, further on, the measures Lana Sinkin took to ensure that there was no reference on the internet to Silva’s association with the Royal Kupuna Exchange; “I made an effort to have the cached pages removed as well and the page indicating the King’s involvement with the Exchange is no longer found on the Internet. I have done my best to track postings referring to the website that included the King and communicate to the authors that the King had nothing to do with the Exchange. Some of those contacted did not correct their postings, so the defamation continues, apparently because it serves political ends.”
The pictures of the fake notes presented by the Neil Keenan Team on their website make it blatantly obvious to me that Silva is currently involved in perpetrating a similar type fraud/con/scam like that in which the convicted conmen of the Royal Kupuna Exchange were previously involved. Silva’s insistence on the removal of his name from any documentation which associated him with the Royal Kupuna Exchange was an essential step in the preparation to perpetrate this fraud.
As I stated in my reply to Kauilapele, “What I feel most sad about in this situation is the innocent people who are being duped right, left and centre along the way. What about the homeowners who were conned by Naidu. These are ‘real’ people not just study cases which the American Bar Association discusses in their copyrighted documents. What about the ‘real’ sovereignty campaigners who are now being put in serious jeopardy because these con men are hi-jacking their valid cause. This mess will set back sovereignty campaigners terribly and their research will be mired in the mud of Silva, Naidu, Sinkin etc..”
In a nutshell this is a real life story about conmen. Mr. Samuel Keolamauloa Kaluna, when his fraud with the Royal Kupuna Exchange was exposed and officials closed down his company in 2002, hijacked the sovereignty cause, created a fictitious kingdom of which he made himself Prime Minister, then, went looking for a ‘king’ to front this fictitious kingdom, found one Edmund Keli’i Silvas (a felon convicted of ‘theft by deception’) in a Colorado Federal Prison, and appointed him the pseudo king of his pseudo kingdom. The rest is about to be history.
PS: Kauilapele, I would strongly advise you to do your own research before you show your ignorance again by labeling my research as ‘disinformation’. It may do you good to remember the old adage – if it talks like a duck, and it walks like a duck, it is a duck, or in this case – considering the fake PhD from the fake university and the fake Dr. Aidun – it is a QUACK.
