RYAN Cristian, editor of LastAmericanVagabond.org, has posted one of the better commentaries online about the possible cause of the Lahaina, Maui, fire storm. The social media posting above suggests these super rich Maui property owners were somehow protected from the fires, or was it simply the case that large mansions on big, spacious blocks with watered lawns would be less vulnerable to fires anyway?

As Cristian points out, the mainstream media are shameless in blaming “climate change” for the tragic Maui fire and others. However, he suggests other people are equally unthinking in jumping to conclusions about direct energy weapons (DEWS) – even if there are US Air Force space surveillance, supercomputing and DEW research facilities on the eastern side of Maui.

“Aha!”, you say. “That proves it was DEWS that started the fire!” No it doesn’t. Now Cairns News and most of its readers have reasons to suspect foul play, but there are some more obvious reasons for the fire than climate change and DEWs. Cristian is trying to point out first and foremost that the fire was horrific and tragic. It doesn’t help when people don’t check the videos they repost from TikTok and others are deliberately spreading false information.

One example of disinformation is this video claiming “Maui was attacked by directed energy weapons (dews).” To someone who has never seen a big electrical short-out before it might be plausible. There’s even a sinister, deep humming noise accompanying it. It’s a real event but nothing to do with Hawaii fires.

Last American Vagabond responded: “Electrical explosion, sparks light up Kenner (Louisiana) sky” posted 4 years ago. You are either lying for some unknown reason which is despicable, or you are sharing things as fact without due diligence. Do better.” Someone else noted also that there is no Shell petrol station in Lahaina.

Now before you condemn Ryan Cristian as a mainstream media shill or CIA plant, note that he rather calmly exposes the presence on the island of actual Directed Energy Directorate military facilities. That would be enough for many, shall we say “conspiracy theorists”, to go off the deep end, regardless of whether the information was cross checked from at least one other source.

But Cristian takes pains to again point to the reality of the tragedy, including a clip of people in the water escaping the heat, smoke and flames. “All theory aside it’s just heartbreaking that this happened in such a beautiful place – at least in my experience full of very beautiful people living a very different life to what we’re used to in the rest of the world.”

There are an even more tragic, but as yet unconfirmed reports warning of multiple fatalities of children who were left at home on the day of the fire because the schools were closed. Police and fire authorities failed spectacularly to warn people of the approaching danger, according a Twitter post attributed to “Ohau Whistleblower”.

“I just got out of a meeting where I was informed by someone in the Mayor’s office about developments that are being kept from the public. I am not a conspiracy theorist and I don’t want to make trouble but here’s what I’ve heard. The amount of fatalities is expected to be more than 500 but less than 1000,” the person posted.

“Many of the fatalities will be children who were at home because they cancelled school, parents were working, and were not there to evacuate the children. The children had no idea they needed to leave and by the time they noticed their homes or apartments were on fire, it was too late.

“The government is worried about how we will react when we learn that the fire department left the fire earlier in the day and claimed it was 100% contained knowing that the winds were expected to be 70mph by the afternoon. This is against all fire control protocols: The fire department should not have left the original fire unattended.

“They are scared that the public calls for accountability will be more than they can control and protests and riots will occur. They plan to lock down Lahaina for several months. It will take months to clean up the hazardous and environmental contamination. They won’t have enough housing for all the displaced. There were 2,000 folks unaccounted for this morning. They found 700 today but there are still 1300 missing.”

The person went on to say emergency or hurricane sirens were not activated and the loss of life could have been kept down by better emergency management “which utterly failed”. “I’m not trying to make waves or stir up problems but I was so angry and sad when I found out how many children are dead that I knew I had to post this and let everyone know what I have learned. It’s time for our officials to stand up, tell the truth, and face the music. They failed Lahaina guys: Our government is full of incompetent nepotism.”

Back a Ryan Cristian’s report he points out that theories claiming evidence of DEWs, such as trees burning from the inside, melting metal and other strange occurrences such as homes not combusting, do happen in wildfires. “There are firemen who will tell you this happens – the way moisture works and all sorts of things. I’m not saying I know that for sure, but my point is I’m not going to go over all these videos … they’re very easy to find, they’re all over the place,” says Cristian.

He goes on to point out a post by Robert F. Kennedy Jnr, on landscape mismanagement on the island and the proliferation of combustible invasive grass species after broadscale agriculture such as sugar cane was abandoned. Cairns News was told by an island visitor that this happened around Lahaina. “Could this be the only reason this fire broke out?” asks Cristian. “Certainly possible.”

But he admitted the scale of the fires certainly raised questions. “That is pretty strange to me…but again, if you’re talking about the storms and the wind that kept this thing going, then I would say feasibly that makes sense, but I’m skeptical of how and why this took place, but then that doesn’t prove there’s foul play.”

Cristian then covers the theories around the big green energy/smart city plans for the island and the aggressive pressure from big corporates in recent decades to buy out Lahaina property. He also references a World Economic Forum article talking about how the state has been highly dependent on fossil fuel and had planned since 2008 to be the first state to “run entirely on clean energy”. But again the link between that and a fire being deliberately lit is tenuous.

Back on the DEW theory, Cristian notes the “rebuttals” by mainstream media who do not even mention the fact of the Air Force Maui Optical and Supercomputing Site (AMOS). “Energy weapons are very real. It’s not even up for debate,” he says, pointing out a new US bill to subsidise “experimental Israeli laser weapons” and now well-known footage of DEWs shooting down five drones (See 28min30s mark on video) some five years ago.

The video then goes over the development of related “active denial technology” involving microwave weapons and the like and an incident in Cuba when diplomats suffered severe hearing loss from a “covert sonic device”. The development of DEW systems on the island of Maui is also covered in detail from publicly available online articles posted by the military.

What is also interesting is the fact that some of the super rich like Jeff Bezos of Amazon, Oprah Winfrey, Bill Gates, Larry Ellison and others also have property on Maui. So will the island perhaps become a retreat for the super rich defended by the most advanced weapons in the world?

Cristian’s research is inconclusive, and he can only suspect that there is some link between the big picture of what is happening on the island and the fire. Already, reports are emerging of property owners being offered money by developers while insurance companies refuse to pay due to “zoning infractions”. As well, a recent law passed to protect Lahaina from new building “unless some type of serious natural disaster occurred”.
