Winnowing the wheat from the chaff
Determining truth from fiction and deliberate propaganda is now a full-time job. But there's a fool-proof way to tell the difference.
I'm not much for Bible quoting, but I can't resist this one: "... he will thoroughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire."
If I take this saying as a metaphor for truth versus BS, I am thus advised in the Bible to gather up the truth, store it as a precious commodity, and burn the BS to ashes.
Unfortunately, determining truth from BS nowadays isn't easy. So, while we're speaking of ashes, I'm going to use the current disaster on the island of Maui as an example of how to tell the difference.
I live on Maui in an area where the fires are still burning, but I happen to be away on the mainland and will be here for some weeks. I am simultaneously relieved to miss the mess and upset that I can't be there to help. I am grateful all my friends are safe and that my home (which I rent) is untouched. But the scenes of devastation are gutting.
The helplessness I feel sitting here in Santa Fe is only matched by the anger and frustration I experience trying to determine fact from fiction around the event.
Different sources, different stories
Mainstream: Turning to mainstream media to get an overview, as time passed, coverage soon settled into rehashed clips of fire raging on Front Street, helicopter views of blocks of disintegrated buildings that looked more like the aftermath of Hiroshima than a wildfire, and explanations of a high-pressure system to the north and Hurricane Dora to the south creating high wind conditions that downed trees and power lines, sparking the fires that caused the devastation.
Climate change and global warming were THE major explanations, hammered home over and over again. There was some early coverage of the puzzling absence of any sort of warning from Maui's excellent island-wide emergency warning system. But as the days passed, the only thing that really differed in the overall coverage was the mounting death toll and PR shots of Oprah Winfrey taking the opportunity to hand out pillows at a local shelter.
Then reports of desperate "looting and near riot-level confrontations" hit the headlines. People who wanted to send money and/or supplies were told to go to the Red Cross and FEMA websites. Focus on governmental efforts became central.
Coconut wireless: The news from the coconut wireless from friends on island was different. The death toll is apparently much higher than what is being reported. As of this date, at least a thousand people—many of them children because school was cancelled that day—are apparently still missing.
The bizarre speed of the conflagration, the multiple simultaneous eruptions, and the total lack of warning for residents are central topics of conversation and concern. (Having lived on Maui for five years, I know how thorough the warning system is. I can get half a dozen texts on a sunny morning at the beach if there is even the possibility of high winds, rain or fire. But for this? Nada. Nothing. Zip.)
Instead of looting (of which there were no reports to local police) I hear about the massive outpouring of help from locals. Everybody who can help is pitching in offering housing and food. Fishing boats and tourist vessels from all over the islands are landing supplies from other islands onto beaches.
But apparently FEMA blocked many of these deliveries of precious supplies and medicines because they weren’t “government approved.” Food was being turned away because it’s not prepared in “approved kitchens.” Local trucks bringing in supplies were turned back at highway road blocks when they were still in effect, because they didn’t have a license or an “approved address” to distribute.
(For a list of local island organizations supplying direct assistance there’s a list at the end of this essay. You can support them and know where your money is going!)
(For an excellent video on this see Greg Reese’s Forbidden Knowledge report.)
And then there is growing talk of a deliberate attack on historic Lahaina Towne's residential district, which has long come under the avaricious eyes of local commercial developers.
In alignment with some of the local whispers of deliberate sabotage and arson, come the deluge of conspiracy explanations (from sources that are definitely not mainstream!), the most popular of which is DEW—a Directed Energy Weapon attack on the town.
I must admit the first time I saw helicopter footage of the old Court House Museum, gutted, with only the walls standing, next to the equally historic 150-year-old Banyan tree that was relatively untouched, I sighed in relief. At least there was something of value that escaped the conflagration!
And then I saw local footage of other ruins with untouched trees and vegetation around them. Cars with the front-half burnt to a shell with the rear-end totally untouched right down to its still-perfect paint job. A charred police vehicle with its plastic light bar atop the ruined metal roof basically unscathed.
The town itself looked like a nuclear blast zone. Wildfires usually leave things like hot water heaters, freezers and fridges and metal girders standing—all those big metal objects that fire can damage but not completely destroy. Apparently, all these things had been vaporized. Huge chunks of concrete and rebar were blasted out of the concrete harbor promenade wall.
Now, aluminum melts at around 1200 degrees Fahrenheit. The melting point of iron alloys and the melting point of steel occur at temperatures around 2,200-2,500 degrees Fahrenheit. The melting point of glass is around 2,700 degrees Fahrenheit. The flash point of wood? It's at 572 degrees Fahrenheit.
One news source's explanation for why trees remain standing right next to the burnt shells of houses in the 2018 Paradise, California fire was: "Many of the region's trees are adapted to surviving fires. Burn damage can still be seen on their trunks. On the other hand, houses are built in ways that make them susceptible to embers, which is one of the significant reasons wildfires spread."
Asphalt shingles and tile roofing are more susceptible to fire than wood? Well, never mind.
According to firefighters, a fire's temperature can range from as low as 400 degrees Fahrenheit up to 9,000 degrees Fahrenheit depending upon fuel sources and oxygen content. Exploding propane tanks, gas lines and automobile gas tanks in the Lahaina fire have to be figured in. It's totally reasonable that the fire burned hotter in some places than in others.
Yet even still, there are some things that point to an "unnatural" source of this particular fire.
Directed Energy Weapons are based upon laser and microwave technologies and the direct vaporization and ionization of metals using microwave fields is well proven. Plastics will melt but not vaporize under a microwave blast. A weapon, depending upon how it is directed, can incinerate one half of a car and leave the rest untouched. It can vaporize old Hawaiian native-owned homes in prime real estate areas, and leave the big box stores untouched–which is exactly what has happened. And it will explode reinforced concrete.
Discernment is key
How to winnow the wheat from the chaff? That's the question. The only way I know how to do this is to 1) do my own research and fact checking, and 2) have a sufficiently detailed and nuanced understanding of global agendas to be able to fit individual events like the Lahaina fire into the proper context when they do occur.
Then I can make a good estimate of what is true and what is not.
So, what is the proper context? Well, I wrote a whole book spelling it out after the two-year Covid debacle drove me out of my New Age spiritual Love & Light Bubble to research the history, nature, and presence of what is (erroneously) called "evil" on this planet.
In a nutshell, what I discovered and thoroughly explain in the book  is that there is an interdimensional Intelligence on this planet—a life-sapping, entropic Force—that has been here since who knows when. At least 35,000 years, as best I can track it. It is non-physical and can penetrate and influence the mental, emotional, spiritual and physical realms. Basically, wherever one is weakest, that is where these beings can enter.
Although the 1999 movie The Matrix is off base in many respects, it does shine an enormous light on one characteristic of this Presence. Just as "the machines" (AI) used humans as an energy source in the film, so does this interdimensional Intelligence. Conflict, division, fear, suffering, anxiety, violence—all strong emotions emitted by humans—are its basic food stuff.
Our name is legion
The ancient Greeks called these beings the Archons—the rulers of Earth who were malevolent, sadistic beings controlling the thoughts, feelings and actions of humans.
For Christians it’s Satan or the devil. For the Hebrews it’s Abaddon. In Islam it’s Iblis or AshShaytān. Buddhism teaches that humans create evil because Mara—the demon who tempted Siddartha and who is “the personification of the forces antagonistic to enlightenment” —is whispering in our ear.
The Gnostic text Pistis Sophia calls the antimimon pneuma (evil principle) an illness that has attached itself to humankind. Because it does not have a physical form, this illness uses us as vehicles to manifest its desire, creating a physical reality to its liking. The "Apocryphon of John" calls it a “counterfeiting spirit” that numbs and toughens human hearts, closing us down, making us small and twisted like itself, with the intention of eventually creating a prison-like reality that it can rule over forever.
For the Hawaiian kahunas the presence of an evil malevolent force destructive to mankind is called the ‘e‘epa. For the Cree tribes in America the evil whisperer is wetiko. To the Algonquin tribes it’s windingo, a hunger-driven cannibal. For Chinese and Tibetan Buddhists, it’s the hungry ghosts of insatiable desire whipping us along the trail to self-destruction.
According to the book Wetiko, by Paul Levy, Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung called this deceiving force “antimimos, the imitator and evil principle” and equated it with the Antichrist. The Russian mystic philosopher George Gurdjieff called it “the machine.” Sri Aurobindo, an Indian philosopher and guru, termed it the Hostile Forces.
Hollywood portrays these entities as vampires. Modern-day philosophers and science fiction writers often refer to these beings as the mind parasites.
I'm not going to go into any more detail here, citing the history, the possible proof or the myriad ways this hostile Force has influenced civilizations for thousands of years. I'm going to cut to the chase and name its agenda: Gaining physicality and global control through our willing (and blind) adoption of its mind—its mindset of conflict and division, pain and suffering, lack of love and a despise for compassion, community, beauty, and all of nature—as our own.
It is a takeover bid. And throughout history it has already overtaken many.
As a non-physical Intelligence, these beings require human minions to do their bidding and serve as their hands and implementors. They attract and possess people who lust for power, money and control. People who are willing to sell out their whole species just for the chance to sit at the top of the smoldering heap once called planet Earth. Their ultimate goal is control with a small population in servitude under their regime.
The Great Deceivers
Research the Great Reset. Research people like George Soros and Yuval Harari. Dig into the Bill Gates of the world. Understand their mindset and agendas.
The global minions behind The Great Reset—the corporate power brokers who speak of Covid and other man-made disasters as golden opportunities for humanity to progress, appear as angels of light.
They speak in glowing terms about how they and organizations like the World Economic Forum and the World Health Organization and organizations like the Open Society Foundations will create equality and unity amongst the peoples and nations of Earth. They talk about all of us becoming partners. They describe a vision of transcending governments and nationalistic interests, of joining hands to save the planet and each other.
And it all sounds so very wonderful. It's everything most of us have ever dreamed of. It's everything we’ve always longed to hear and do and be.
But it’s bait.
Poison wrapped in sweetmeats, tempting us to eat the fruit of the corrupted tree.
Call me crazy or deluded, I do not care. I have put my journalist cap on and researched this for over two years now. As farfetched and science-fiction-y as this all sounds, if you care to do the same, you will find that the facts, the history, and the current global situation all add up.
So—now you have proper context for determining truth from BS.
Any event that can possibly foster fear and chaos, the growth of more regulations and external control (blame the Lahaina fire on climate change), division, displacement of lower classes, depopulation, the possibility of elites usurping precious resources (like the now-available residential areas that burned), or that portrays humanity in a bad light (violent, greedy looters) is suspect.
Media coverage of such events is also suspect because 90 percent of mainstream media is controlled by six global media corporations owned by three global asset management companies owned by the elite 1% —Black Rock, Vanguard and Main Street.
So, next time you see an "event"—another Lahaina fire, an inexplicable weather event, another experimental drug being pushed down people's throats, more mandated lockdowns, more character assassinations leveled at people like Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Dr. Robert Malone and Andrew Bridgen (a British Conservative MP kicked out of Parliament for spreading "misinformation" about Covid vaccinations) .... take stock. Think twice. Research. (Even though you're told by the media and experts not to!) And remember the agenda.
If the event serves the agenda, even in a minor way ... if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's probably a doggone duck.
Much love and aloha ~
