Santa Claus from Hawaii Affects Hawaii and the World Today

SANTA CLAUS from Hawaii

By Amelia Kuulei Gora, One of Kamehameha's descendants (2010)

SANTA Claus, a character based on fourth-century bishop Nicholas -" a patron saint of the Dutch Amsterdam, named by Dutch merchants and sailors. Saint Nicholas/Sint Nikolaas; Sinterklaus were names given by the Dutch.

The following documents Santa Claus, a fictional character, promoted by American deviants and businessmen over time with background and noted:

1812 A HISTORY OF NEW YORK"by Diedrich Knickerbocker (1812) by Washington Irving was published. Santa Claus was mentioned.

Background: John Jacob Astor, who mistreated Indians, had paid Washington Irving to write favorably about him.

John Jacob Astor (1763-1848) was an American capitalist whose business was Fur. (Note: Notice how Santa Claus outfit is made of Fur.)

1837 "An Account of a Visit from St. Nicholas" also known as "Twas the Night before Christmas" book by Clement Moore was printed and promoted.

Background: Clement Moore wrote material attacking Thomas Jefferson for his undermining the Christian faith.

Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) was the Third (3rd ) President of the United States, Statesman, Diplomat, Architect and author of a bible which included "only divine love, mercy and goodness."

Thomas Jefferson owned 400 slaves. His twice married wife Martha (Walses Skelton) added another 135 slaves and lands amounting to 40,000 acres. In the draft of the Declaration of Independence, Jefferson struck out the paragraph denouncing slavery. He was a practicing attorney who abolished the slave trade from Africa; HATED HEREDITARY PRIVILEGE (S). He cast aside the kingly ceremonies and adopted the rule "first come, first served." He doctored his slaves; was a scientist of sorts calculating an eclipse; letter copying press, revolving and folding chair; hemp; pedometer; gold medal winning plow; a two-wheeled vehicle inventor. He knew seven languages: English; Greek; Latin; French; Italian; Spanish and German. He was a writer and compiled a bible.

He borrowed $20,000 to repay a debt made while being the President for fear of being jailed. His treasured library was sold to Congress to maintain his home for himself, his grandchildren, grandnieces, and grandnephews. The Presidential income was $25,000 per annum. He was the author of the Declaration of Independence and founder of the University of Washington.

? U. S. Military Academy at West Point teacher painted a jovial, white male, a Santa Claus entering a Chimney top.

Background: The West Point teacher/artist represented the military establishment.

Note: The military is always in the background and supports American businessmen and their activities.

It is interesting to note that the white male character denotes someone superior over others of color. The dominant character is one who "takes care" of "children", the "needy", the grantor of gifts to those who are "good" and nothing to those who are "bad".
