What are they trying to hide? Tall black fencing that stretches for miles and miles has been hastily constructed around the perimeter of Lahaina, and this has created a tremendous amount of speculation. Are they trying to keep people out?
Are they trying to keep people from seeing what really happened in Lahaina? There are so many questions that all of us should be asking right now. An independent journalist has captured video footage of this giant black fence that has been put up, and it is super creepy…
The official explanation that we are being given for this black fencing is that it is a “dust screen” that is meant to protect drivers from dust in the disaster zone…
The state Department of Transportation is installing nearly 30,000 linear feet of dust screen for the protection of highway users on Honoapiʻilani Highway (Route 30) and the Lahaina Bypass (Route 3000).
The work started on Aug. 16 with Maui-based contractors teaming up for the project that should take about a month to complete. The teams are constructing a fence that will stretch more than 5 miles.
Okay, but that doesn’t explain why there are countless law enforcement vehicles parked all along the black fencing.
Anyone who approaches the black fence is quickly intercepted and told to go away.
And if an unauthorized person is able to venture into the disaster zone, that individual will be arrested…
“That’s why we can’t have you walking down there,” Maui, Hawaii, Police Chief John Pelletier says in a video recently shared on TikTok. “We had to arrest somebody for trespassing. And so, if we want to keep doing this and slowing it down, keep doing that. Do a Freedom of Information Act and figure out who that person is and tell that story. Knock it off.”
A narrator then cuts in and says, “All right, breaking news: The police chief in the region affected by these fires has started arresting witnesses, and he tells the press to dox the witnesses that he arrested. So very concerning, the Maui police are now arresting witnesses. They’re telling people to stay away, and that they’ll arrest them if they show up. Are they trying to cover up key evidence?”
They clearly don’t want anyone to go down there.
Why is that?
And it is also being reported that authorities are preventing people from flying drones over the disaster area as well…
An independent journalist named Geoff Cygnus has been documenting his trip to Maui, where he is attempting to report on this tragedy and its aftermath. He calls himself a “volunteer reporter” and has nearly 400,000 followers on TikTok. On August 17, he announced that local officials shut down their ability to fly drones, which makes many people suspicious about what they might be trying to hide.
“I have been on public property that was not in any way locked down. That’s where my footage came from,” Cygnus said. But those areas are no longer available for filming.
Perhaps there are legitimate reasons why all of these extreme measures are being taken.
But to many people, it feels like they are trying to cover up the truth.
Of course, so much of the truth has already gotten out.
We already know that the sirens didn’t go off, we already know that a bureaucrat blocked the emergency release of water that was desperately needed to fight the fires, and we already know that a barricade was blocking the only paved road out of Lahaina on that fateful day.
By now, most of you have seen photographs of the vehicles that were burned as they waited in long lines right in the middle of the street.
One local resident was able to capture footage as he sat in his vehicle waiting to get out of Lahaina, and he claimed that authorities were “blocking off all exits and everyone is just stuck going in a circle in a fire pit”.
His video contains some very bad language, but it is the only such footage that I have seen. So that makes it extremely important evidence, and if you would like to view it you can do so right here.

Those people desperately wanted to escape, but they couldn’t get out.
Now many of them are dead.
It also appears that we are not being told the truth about the enormous number of children that died during the fires…
The FBI, the Red Cross and the Maui police have a missing persons list that contains approximately 1,000 people who are still unaccounted for. Even this official missing person’s list falls short of the harsh reality that over 2,400 kids are missing in Maui. The mayor of Maui, Richard Bissen, has yet to report on this grave reality. Multiple hundreds of kids were left to burn in Lahaina, and the corporate press has yet to address this chilling reality and the failure of the government’s emergency response.
Hawaii officials have been encouraging families from Lahaina to enroll their children in schools outside of the burn zone. The four schools in Lahaina served more than 3,000 students. Shocking, only about 400 students from the burn area have reportedly enrolled in other public schools. Only around 200 more have signed up for distance learning. At least 2,400 students are left unaccounted for in the public school system. These figures do not even account for children who are home-schooled in Lahaina, many of which could be missing as well.
The official death toll is still only at 115, but everyone knows that figure is not even close to accurate.
Unfortunately, authorities in Hawaii seem absolutely determined to control this story from this point forward.
So we may never learn the full truth about what really happened during this horrific tragedy.
Of course, many Americans have already forgotten about the fires on Maui because other major disasters have struck since then.
As I discussed earlier this month, we have now reached a stage where there is literally no pause between major disasters hitting the United States. Following the fires in Hawaii, there were terrible fires in the Spokane area, then Hurricane Hilary caused all sorts of havoc once it reached California, and now Hurricane Idalia has absolutely hammered Florida…
Hurricane Idalia has made landfall in Florida’s Big Bend region Wednesday as a strong Category 3 storm.
Idalia made landfall near Keaton Beach in the Florida Big Bend around 7:45 a.m. It maintained its status as a “major” hurricane at the time of landfall with maximum sustained winds of 125 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center (NHC).
We are being told that this was the most powerful storm to ever hit that particular part of the state.
Much of that area is just barely above sea level, and so the storm left “large swathes of the west of the Sunshine State underwater”…
Video footage shows the levels of flooding covering the streets, leaving large swathes of the west of the Sunshine State underwater.
Idalia made landfall on Florida’s Big Bend at Keaton Beach at 7.45am on Wednesday – and is barreling its way across Georgia and towards South Carolina.
Some Floridians residents who chose to ride out the hurricane at home were forced to ‘swim out of their windows’ to avoid the wall of water.
Brenda and Phil Henley, who live in Crystal River, saw residents and neighbors fleeing from their homes by the window because of the rapidly rising water.
This was an immensely powerful storm.
In fact, it was so strong that it actually caused the Steinhatchee River to run in reverse…
Hurricane Idalia had such strong winds at the peak of battering Florida with 125mph winds that it managed to reverse the flow of a river.
The Steinhatchee River had its current turned on its head as the then-Category 2 storm careered through the county.
Sailboats were torn from their moorings and their masts flung into a bridge as the waters were sent backward up the river.
Many of the vessels were destroyed as they were forced under the structures, and authorities say hundreds of bridges will need repairing in the aftermath of the hurricane.
Just like Hilary, it appears that this storm caused a massive amount of economic damage.
But it won’t be too long before Idalia is forgotten by most Americans, because it is just a matter of time before we are hit by even greater natural disasters.
We have entered a time in history when one major event after another is going to be clamoring for our attention.
Global events are rapidly accelerating, and the pace of change is starting to move at an exponential rate.
So buckle up and hold on tight, because things are only going to get crazier from here.
