The recent conflagration in Maui’s Lahaina Town shocked the nation. Some have called it an act of war—if so, one might argue that it has a predecessor.
Although the Allies in World War II clearly needed to stop Hitler and to aid Russia in its advance on Germany from the east, many have questioned whether the firebombing of Dresden, the “Florence on the Elbe,” was justified. It was certainly horrific. Historian Donald Miller paints a vivid picture of the cataclysmic scene:
“People’s shoes melted into the hot asphalt of the streets, and the fire moved so swiftly that many were reduced to atoms before they had time to remove their shoes. The fire melted iron and steel, turned stone into powder, and caused trees to explode from the heat of their own resin.”
History may not exactly repeat, but it often rhymes. The above description sounds eerily similar to the effects of the inferno in Lahaina. Of course, Dresden was a major European cultural center in the midst of a world war, while Lahaina is a small town in Hawaii, so there the comparison ends.
And, in the case of Dresden, the apocalyptic ruination of that beautiful city resulted from incessant Allied bombing including incendiaries that created a firestorm, killing tens of thousands of civilians and leaving only charred remains of the exquisite architecture that had graced the city.
Whereas in Lahaina, there were no visible bombs, no readily discernible enemy, and for the most part, not even any rubble. Only ash.
NATURAL VS UNNATURAL EVENTS
But how can one say this fire was an act of war? Wasn’t it an accident? Can’t we call it a natural disaster?
We’ve long used the terms “acts of nature,” “acts of God,” and “natural disasters” to describe earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and wildfires. Yet ever since our own military fulfilled its goal of “owning the weather,” all bets are off.
Some people still think geoengineering, aka chemtrails, is a “conspiracy theory” rather than believing their own eyes when they see planes spewing long white plumes that expand till they cover a clear blue sky with a pale, sickly haze. And perhaps, if you’re old enough, you remember what the night sky filled with stars looked like—truly dazzling. Because in many places, we don’t see that anymore.
And beyond chemtrails, technologies exists today that can cause earthquakes and tsunamis, and even amplify and steer hurricanes. An hour or two of diligent research online can yield plenty of examples. But let’s focus on fires.
Here in California, we’re all too familiar with forest fires. Summer is also known as “fire season.” In the past, such fires were often caused by careless campers leaving a camp fire untended, or tossing a lit cigarette on the ground. There’s also the issue of neglect of our forests, which need controlled burns to thin them out. Overgrown, mismanaged forests are certainly part of the reason we’ve had worse fires than in past decades.
But in the past seven years or so, something new has been added to this picture: fires intentionally started using a form of high tech energy warfare. This technology, known as Directed Energy Weapons (DEW), is similar to that of your microwave oven. If you’ve ever had a piece of tinfoil in that oven, you know how metal reacts to microwaves. And if you do an experiment, as YouTuber Max Mogren did, and put leaves and fronds in your microwave, you’ll also learn that plant matter doesn’t burn. This explains why these modern day weaponized fires melt metal but leave trees standing with all their foliage. The trees die, but they don’t burn. They’re cooked from the inside, like your potatoes.
DIRECTED ENERGY WEAPONS: SMART FIRES
Here’s what many researchers have learned: Fires that vaporize houses and melt glass and metal while leaving nearby trees standing tall—not even blackened or stripped of foliage—are deliberately set using DEWs.
That this technology exists is well known, as is its footprint. Take a look at theashen remains of Paradise, California as an example. The infamous Camp Fire in 2018 wiped out the wine country towns of Paradise and Concow. Prior to that, there were the 2017 Wine Country Fires, aka the Northern California Firestorm, a series of 21 major fires, including the disastrous Tubbs Fire. Here’s another shot of the aftermath of the Tubbs fire that clearly shows trees standing while homes and buildings have been burned to the ground as ash and rubble—nothing left standing at all: no walls, no chimneys, no charred remains—nothing.
LAHAINA: GROUND ZERO
While some DEWs deploy microwave technology, others use high-energy lasers. How else than by laser could the perpetrators have drawn a perfect fiery ring around Lahaina as revealed in an aerial drone view in this one-minute video on Rumble?
What is so telling about it is that the two main fires, the one in Kihei and the horrific Lahaina fire, have very distinct and geometric outlines—something not possible in nature. Note the oval-shaped circle of fire with clear perimeters around Lahaina—evidence in plain sight of a high-tech DEW attack.
Heart-wrenching before and after photographs of Lahaina can be found on the San Francisco Chronicle’s website, including another drone aerial video of the Maui fires.
And what makes the assault on Lahaina particularly heinous is the fact that this town is a repository of Hawaiian history as the capitol of the Hawaiian Kingdom for twenty-five years in the 19th century. Now a substantial trove of that history has been summarily eradicated. This is an accelerated version of what we see on the mainland with the tearing down of important historical statues and monuments: the erasure of a people’s history.

RED FLAGS GALORE
Take a look at some of the “anomalies” and “coincidences” and you’ll see why Occam’s Razor suggests we need an explanation that accounts for them all.
· Mysterious green lasers beamed down over Maui in January 2023, supposedly from a Chinese satellite. According to University of Hawaii Institute of Astronomy’s Roy Gal, it had instruments for “topographical mapping.” Coincidence?
· Schools were closed on August 8th, due to high winds from Hurricane Dora, though the hurricane was 500 miles away; or was the wind man-made, perhaps using VLF waves as some have suggested?
· Maui’s state-of-the-art disaster warning siren system was never used, though the Lahaina firestorm was arguably the worst disaster the island has ever experienced.
· On July 17th, Governor Josh Green signed an Executive Order declaring a “housing emergency” in Hawaii due to housing shortage, skyrocketing house prices and homelessness. Under this “emergency,” (which sounds a lot like life in California) he suspended a number of laws, including the all-important safeguard of “Historic Preservation.” That means historic Lahaina is ripe for a land grab. Amazing timing, Governor. Says he: “I’m already thinking of waysfor the state to acquire that land so that we can put it into workforce housing, to put it back into families, or make it open spaces in perpetuity as a memorial to the people who were lost.” Emphasis mine.
· The single road out of the path of the encroaching inferno was subject to a police barricade, presumably on orders from the Chief of Police, none other than John Pelletier, a Police Captain during the Las Vegas Massacre. Hmmm…disaster seems to follow him like a magnet. He’s not only Maui’s Police Chief, he’s also the Coroner! Here’s a statement he made about the barricades: “So there was a point when we didn’t let traffic into Front Street because Front Street was on fire. But we did not impede people from exiting the area.” Tell that to the people stuck in their cars trying to leave as the fire roared down Front Street. Oh, that’s right, you can’t. They perished.
· Unbelievably, Lahaina’s water was turned off! Deputy Director for the State of Hawaii Commission on Water Resource Management, M. Kaleo Manuel, waited five hours to release desperately needed water to combat the fires. Here’s a statement he made last year: "My motto is always like: Let water connect us and not divide us. We can share it, but it requires true conversations about equity." I’m wondering what would be an equitable recompense for his criminal collusion in the incineration of so many innocent Hawaiians. By the way, Kaleo is one of 200 inaugural Obama Leaders representing the Asia-Pacific region with the Obama Foundation.
· Hawaii Electric claims the power was turned off by 9am on August 8thand stayed off, while Pelletier claims the police used barricades to save people from driving over dangerous downed power lines. So were the power lines energized or de-energized? And why wasn’t it a top priority to remove them if they presented a hazard?
· Boats that were 50 yards or more out in the harbor waters caught fire. In fact, some said the sea was on fire! And in some videos taken during the conflagration, it seemed the ground burst into flames.
· “Gosh, what a coincidence that the only parts of the island affected were the ones with all the poors. [sic] You know, the same ones who have been fighting with property developers over the sale of land from natives/locals......” . Quote from a reader on a New York Post article about celebrity estates on Maui—all unharmed. Oprah’s estate in Kula remained untouched by fires both north and south of Kula, including one that was a mere 2 miles away, which with 80 mph winds, would take less than 2 minutes to reach her home. What a lucky break.
· The aftermath: FEMA’s fencing off of the burned areas. Why the secrecy? Why keep the locals from surveying what’s left of their own homes? And why forbid citizens from using drones to observe what the government is doing? Destroying evidence, perhaps?
Sounds like a plot from bad novel—and we’re just getting started.
LET’S NOT FORGET THE CHILDREN
Where are they, the 2,000 children who haven’t shown up in school in the weeks since the fire? Are their families keeping them close since the fire was so traumatizing—not just for the kids but for the whole families? Perhaps we’ll see this number dramatically decline as more children head back to school.

Or did many of them tragically perish in the fires and is the actual death toll on Maui not in the low hundreds, but in the thousands? Two thousand children unaccounted for out of Lahaina’s community of only 12,000 people is one-sixth of the population. My guess is that the death toll is in the thousands, including many of the “missing” children who likely burned to death—excruciating to even contemplate--an atrocity of gargantuan proportions.
ONE MORE COINCIDENCE
Remember how the movie Contagion from 2011 almost perfectly mirrored the Plandemic of 2020? Or how the movie “White Noise” seemed to predict the East Palestine catastrophic train derailment?
Well take a look at the 2016 episode of The Simpsons entitled “Monty Burns’ Fleeing Circus”. You’ll see a town attacked by laser-like beams that leave a deadly stream of fire in their wake, quickly incinerating an entire town. And in the aftermath, among the rubble, there’s a closed blue patio umbrella standing tall—just as we’ve seen in Lahaina—presumably due to the theory that lasers target the red end of the light spectrum, not the blue.
We weren’t warned, but we were told.
This is the twisted game the perpetrators play with us over and over. And by the way, the photos of the unburned blue umbrellas surrounded by ash and rubble in Lahaina have been mostly scrubbed from the internet. But I’m posting a screen shot of this mystery below, captured by Greg Reese. And just below that photo are a couple of frames from the Simpson’s episodeMonty Burns’ Fleeing Circus.
But this Reese Report is shocking for another reason. It alleges that Chinese satellites were beaming lasers over Maui moments before the fires began, citing robotics expert Steve Favis’ claims to this effect.
Ah, so it was China, Greg? Nothing to do with Hawaii Governor Josh Green’s commitment to the UN’s Sustainability Goals (SDGs) of Agenda 2030—the Net Zero Dystopia—that he reaffirmed at a UN Summit less than a month before the fires? That man has impeccable timing…
Let’s remember that it was a globalist plan all along to reclaim this land, and that American politicians and bureaucrats have been conspiring to do so for quite some time. And let’s also remember the “China virus” from 2020 turned out to be American-made. Easy to blame China, but would China commit an out-and-out kinetic act of war against the US by wiping out an historic corner of Maui along with much of its population? Motive, please.
Looks to me like we’re in false flag/psy-op territory. After all, cui bono? Who’s already salivating to snap up the land on Maui for their preplanned Smart City?
CONSPIRING APPARATCHIKS, MINIONS AND USEFUL IDIOTS
The men at the very top—mostly psychopathic billionaires and their hangers-on—are generally well protected and out of reach. But no matter how nefarious their plans, they can’t enact them without myriad minions and abettors. Hitler had to have his henchmen.
In regards to Lahaina, there are at least a few men who need to be held accountable before we consider going after bigger fish: Governor Josh Green, Police Chief and Coroner John Pelletier, and Deputy Director for the State of Hawaii Commission on Water Resource Management M. Kaleo Manuel. And let’s not forget Herman Andaya, head of the Maui Emergency Management Agency, who made the brilliant decision not to sound the disaster sirens. Mr. Andaya immediately resigned, due to…um…”health issues.”
And we need to know more about the policeman who refused to let desperate drivers get out of harms way because he was “following orders.” He likely believed he was doing the right thing, and that his superiors knew of hazards unknown to him. After all, he was risking his own life standing there with the flames approaching. Nevertheless, since the choice was between certain death from burning alive if people stayed put in their cars, and the possibility of escape, he should have stepped aside and let them drive toward safety.
THE PRIME SUSPECTS
Whether we call them the Davos Elites, Globalists, the Billionaires’ Club, the Cabal, etc., these powerful players who’re all in for creating a One World Government with themselves at the helm are the ultimate culprits behind nearly everything nefarious transpiring in our world today. This includes not only the new breed of “wildfires”, but also the plandemic, the Color Revolution in America that saddled us with Beijing O’Biden and the Kackler, and much, much more.
Some may be unknown to most of us, hiding at the top of the pile of crazed megalomaniacs, but many are familiar suspects, along with their large eponymous foundations always ready to help with their “philanthropy.” In no particular order, here’s a partial list: the Rockefellers, Bill Gates, Ted Turner, Larry Fink, Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg, the Clintons, Warren Buffett, Michael Bloomberg, George Soros, the person formerly known as Sustainable Prince Charles, et al., and with a nod to their various organizations of duplicity, chicanery and treason: the United Nations, the World Economic Forum, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, the World Bank, the Bank of International Settlements, etc., presumably with Blackrock and Vanguard not far behind.
True, we can’t simply point to this or that member of these “elites” as the culprit who organized the annihilation of Lahaina. That’s why we call them “the Cabal.” But they’ve left their fingerprints all over this atrocity.
MOTIVE AND OPPORTUNITY
As for motive, look no further than their grand agenda: Agenda 21—the Agenda for the 21st Century—and the flashpoint before us, Agenda 2030, as they turn up the heat both literally and figuratively.
And how do we know their agenda? They’ve published it!
To enact their One World Government utopia, they plan to reconfigure the world as we know it, ending national sovereignty, and redesigning countries into combined unions, e.g. the European Union, and the planned North American Union, etc. All will be vassal states serving the whims of the Masters of the Universe in their palatial digs.
Interestingly, the wildfires in California and Maui appear to have opposite purposes. The Wine Country fires were likely deployed as a first step in reclaiming that land as “wildlands” or “buffer zones” in which human access will be banned. Whereas the firebombing of Lahaina was likely done to clear the decks for the building of a 15-minute city—a high-density, urbanized mini-metropolis, filled with stack-and-pack housing, and miserable, constantly surveilled people. A travesty inflicted on the tranquil small town community of mostly native Hawaiians.
And as for opportunity, the sky’s their limit, although they likely waited for a hurricane somewhere in the Pacific for the sake of plausible deniability.
They say a picture’s worth a thousand words.
This is a map of Maui from Appendix B of the Maui Island Plan Map Book.
One by one, I clicked on the boxes in the Lahaina coastal region, and they’re all earmarked the same way: “urban areas.” That’s Agenda 21-speak for Smart Cities, as opposed to rural areas and open space. So Lahaina’s been slated for this dystopian transformation since December of 2012. The globalists’ patience seems to have suddenly worn thin.
THE GLOBALISTS TAKE THE GLOVES OFF
The mega fires in California since 2017, as well as those in Canada this year, are essentially forest fires. This gives those who are behind the torching of such lands—the Davos elites and friends—plausible deniability. After all, forest fires do happen.
But the conflagration in Lahaina, coupled with a series of “coincidental” blunders that greatly magnified the deaths of Hawaiians as well as the destruction of their property, wasn’t a forest fire, nor a wildfire.
Instead, it was a heinous, even genocidal crime against innocent indigenous Hawaiians, many of whose families have lived in Lahaina for generations. Their very infrastructure failed them: no water, no warning siren, no power, no cell phone access, and police there to hinder, not to help.
Whole families were apparently intentionally immolated in their homes or in cars as they tried to escape the inferno. The powers-that-be turned Lahaina into a virtual crematorium.
Until now, the globalist elites have depended on their media lackeys and co-conspirators to fool We the People with false but seeming plausible narratives. Though many independent thinkers quickly figured out the Plandemic was essentially a psy-op, the cabal got away with it largely because their fearmongering was so successful, bolstered by their lackeys in the medical profession and all those supposedly helpful government agencies with their Orwellian motto: Trust the science.
However, the apocalyptic Lahaina demolition and mass murder defies such propaganda. There’s no fearmongering to distract us this time. And the evil is palpable. There are too many coincidences that can only be explained by a planned scenario. I wouldn’t be surprised if this turns out to be a watershed moment in waking up the public. The globalist powermongers have finally taken their gloves off.
Adding insult to injury, for those who aren’t familiar with the globalists’ grand plan, Agenda 21, that document is replete with verbiage about the importance of caring for “indigenous people.” In Lahaina, they’ve more than proven their venal hypocrisy, reminding us that actions speak louder than words, as they’ve decimated the only beachfront in Maui that was owned almost entirely by indigenous Hawaiians, whom they ruthlessly burned alive to get their land.
THE ULTIMATE WEALTH TRANSFER
The following quote is from the preamble to The Vancouver Action Plan approved at Habitat: United Nations Conference on Human Settlements in 1976:
Land, because of its unique nature and the crucial role it plays in human settlement, cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership is also a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth and therefore contributes to social injustice; if unchecked, it may become a major obstacle in the planning and implementation of development schemes.
Social justice, urban renewal and development, the provision of decent dwelling and healthy conditions for people can only be achieved if land is used in the interest of society as a whole.
Of course we’ve seen this in practice in the former Soviet Union and other Communist nations. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that Agenda 21 is primarily focused on land ownership and control. The globalist elites understand that most wealth emanates from land. Depending on how much you own and control, you can grow crops, graze cattle, claim water and mineral rights, drill for oil, mine for metals, build houses, buildings, shopping centers, and more.
From pre-Biblical times onward, countless battles have been fought over land ownership. Think about the changing boundaries of countries in Europe after WWI and WWII, not to mention the colonization of the New World by several of those nations, or even America’s famous Louisiana Purchase.
Land is key. And that’s why the cabal wants to own it all. Yes, all.
Thus in a corner of Maui, repository of much Hawaiian history and sacred cultural artifacts, where indigenous Hawaiians have lived for generations, they simply razed it with fire, incinerating properties along with many of their owners. Now they’re having the ashes swept up and thrown in the trash out of sight of the people. And then, one way or another, they’ll quietly confiscate this land. That was the whole point.
We on the mainland should be outraged by this murderous premeditated land grab, but must not congratulate ourselves that land grabs couldn’t happen here. They’re already happening.
Sometimes, as in Paradise, California, they take place through DEW fires; sometimes sneakily, through bureaucratic soviet-style tyranny by our own cities, counties and states as they mandate stack-and-pack multifamily housing projects in “priority development” areas near public transit. And if this agenda proceeds and intensifies, it won’t be long before the tranquil suburbs of the American Dream become distant memories and we’re left with the transformation of our cherished neighborhoods into the dystopian 15-minute cities that our globalist masters have planned for us.
And this is why we must fight this agenda every step of the way.
How’s this for a battle cry: Remember Lahaina!
