Questions surrounding Maui fires

in article body1


Unanswered Questions Surrounding the Maui, Hawaii Fires

The recent wildfires that ravaged Maui, Hawaii, have left residents and observers with a multitude of unanswered questions. From the handling of evacuations to the eerie juxtaposition of untouched millionaire-owned properties amid the destruction of native lands, there are several perplexing aspects that beg scrutiny.
Selective Protection of Millionaire-Owned Properties

One of the most glaring disparities during the Maui fires was the selective protection of certain properties owned by millionaires and billionaires like Jeff Bezos, Oprah Windfrey, and the owner of PayPal. While these affluent properties remained untouched, the land of native Hawaiians was consumed by the flames. This stark contrast, with the millionaire-owned homes standing just a few feet away from the inferno, raises serious questions about the allocation of resources and priorities.

Silent Sirens: The Failure of the Warning System

Maui boasts the largest outdoor siren warning system globally, a potentially life-saving asset during emergencies like wildfires. However, during the fires, the sirens remained dormant, failing to alert residents to the imminent danger. The inexplicable decision to keep these sirens silent when they could have saved lives is a cause for concern.

School Closures and Water Shutdowns

All schools in Maui were closed during the fire, and in a puzzling move, the water supply was abruptly shut off just as the fires began to rage. This left residents without the means to combat the advancing flames. The closure of schools and the water shutdown, coinciding with the outbreak of fires, demands an explanation.

Policand Electric Utility Vehicle Blockades

Perhaps one of the most disturbing aspects of the Maui fires was the reported actions of the Maui Police. According to reports, police blockaded exit routes, while other routes were blocked by Electric Utility vehicles, not allowing residents to evacuate, forcing some to jump into the water to escape the advancing fires. The reasoning behind such actions raises serious questions about public safety, emergency response protocols and potential of pre determined desired outcomes behind he fires.

Renewable Energy Goals and Land Ownership

Maui has ambitious plans to become the first location to operate entirely on renewable energy. However, this goal necessitates a significant reduction in CO2 emissions. Just one month prior to the fires, the mayor proudly announced the island's commitment to the United Nations 2030 agenda of sustainable development. This raises concerns about the potential motives behind the fires and the pursuit of renewable energy.

Furthermore, the involvement of BlackRock and the United States government, two of the three largest landowners in Maui, adds a layer of complexity. These entities have been attempting to purchase land from native Hawaiians for decades, with the indigenous population steadfastly refusing to sell. Now, survivors are facing eviction from their still-standing homes, raising questions about the ethics of land ownership and development.

Suspicious Connections

Adding to the intrigue, the police chief John Pelletier, who oversaw the Maui crisis had previously been in charge on Oct. 1, 2017, as the incident commander covering the Strip when a gunman unleashed a hail of bullets on a country music festival, killing 58 people and injuring hundreds more, an event shrouded in government secrecy. The presence of this individual in both scenarios warrants further examination.

Media Influence and Fact-Checking

Lastly, it's essential to consider the influence of media outlets and fact-checkers. Some argue that these events are mere coincidences, but it's worth noting that some fact-checkers are linked to BlackRock, a key player in the renewable energy agenda. The influence of these entities on public perception is a cause for concern.

In conclusion, the events surrounding the Maui, Hawaii fires raise numerous questions that demand answers. From the unequal protection of properties to the inaction of warning systems, the handling of the situation warrants scrutiny. To ensure transparency and accountability, it is crucial that these questions are thoroughly investigated, and the truth is brought to light. The residents of Maui deserve nothing less than a full understanding of the events that unfolded during this devastating crisis.

Texas Impeachment Trial

Screenshot 259

The Texas impeachment trial of Attorney General Ken Paxton marks a significant chapter in the state's political history. Paxton, who has held the position of Attorney General since 2015, is facing one of the most high-profile legal proceedings in the Lone Star State's recent memory.

The Texas House legislators impeached the AG in May, alleging a range of offenses, including bribery, obstruction of justice, and the misuse of public funds. This move was not taken lightly, as the Republican-dominated chamber overwhelmingly passed 20 articles of impeachment by a decisive vote of 121-23.

This impeachment trial represents not only a legal battle but also a significant moment in the history of the Texas Attorney General's office and the state's political landscape as a whole.

The trial is the culmination of a turbulent political journey for Paxton. It all began when he requested $3.3 million in state funds to settle a whistleblower lawsuit. In this lawsuit, former aides to Paxton made explosive allegations. They claimed they were wrongfully terminated after alerting federal authorities, including the FBI, to alleged improper dealings between Paxton and a prominent donor and real estate developer, Nate Paul.

The accusations didn't stop there. Among the allegations was the claim that Nate Paul had employed a woman with whom Paxton was having an extramarital affair in exchange for political favors. These revelations sent shockwaves through the Texan political landscape, leading to Paxton's impeachment.

Now, as the impeachment trial unfolds in the state Senate, the eyes of the nation are on Texas. To remove Paxton from office, a two-thirds majority vote is required from the Senate's 30 voting members. It's worth noting that Angela Paxton, Ken Paxton's wife, is the 31st member, but she will not partake in the voting or deliberations.

In the midst of the ongoing Covid-19 saga, some cautious voices are raising doubts about the BA.2.86 variant, dubiously referred to as "Pirola." These skeptics question whether this new variant is genuinely cause for concern or if it's simply another chapter in the ever-evolving narrative surrounding the virus. 

According to official sources like the CDC, "Pirola" is touted as a highly-mutated cousin of the Omicron strain, which garnered worldwide attention for its rapid spread. However, some skeptics argue that this characterization might be exaggerated to keep the public in a perpetual state of fear.
Pirola virus

In an era where trust in institutions is waning or in many cases, has already done so, the emergence of "Pirola" with its alleged 30-plus mutations on the spike protein raises eyebrows. Critics point out that such a high number of mutations is indeed noteworthy, but they question whether it's truly a cause for alarm or if it's just part of the natural evolution of the virus. 

The idea that "Pirola" could potentially evade the body's immune responses, whether from prior infection or vaccination, is causing unease among some. Skeptics argue that while it's a possibility, it's also speculative at this stage, and more concrete evidence is needed before jumping to conclusions. 

The ongoing detection of "Pirola" in multiple countries, seemingly unrelated cases, and its swift appearance in the US since August have led to conspiracy theories suggesting a hidden agenda or a deliberate manipulation of the narrative. Some believe that the international transmission of the variant might not be a result of natural spread but could be orchestrated for undisclosed reasons.

As the debate rages on, the call for booster shots continues. Some skeptics see this as an opportunity for pharmaceutical companies to capitalize on public fear, questioning the true necessity of these booster shots and whether they are merely a means to control the population. It’s difficult to allow oneself to think in these terms but too much of what has happened relating to COVID continues to point in that direction. 

While the CDC assures the public that updated vaccines will target both "Pirola" and the Omicron subvariant "Eris," skeptics remain doubtful about their efficacy. They believe that these vaccines might not provide the foolproof protection promised by health authorities, leaving individuals to wonder about the true extent of their safety. 

In a world where uncertainty and skepticism reign, the truth behind "Pirola" remains a mystery, and individuals are left to navigate a sea of conflicting information, conspiracies, and official statements. The quest for clarity continues as the world grapples with yet another chapter in the ongoing pandemic narrative.
