We talked yesterday about the horrifying coincidences surrounding the devastating tragedy on Maui. But one thing that I can’t get out of my head is the fact that, in this case, many of the decisions made by the authorities were NOT in the best interest of people trying to survive the fires. You can’t just blindly obey the authorities during a disaster if you want to live.

The thing that particularly stands out to me – the thing that could affect any of us in a wide variety of emergencies on a one-to-one level – is that there were barricades meant to prohibit people from evacuating on certain roads away from the fires.  The people who bypassed the barricades survived. Many of the ones who turned around have not yet been found or have perished.

The AP reports a chilling story:

As flames tore through a West Maui neighborhood, car after car of fleeing residents headed for the only paved road out of town in a desperate race for safety.

And car after car was turned back toward the rapidly spreading wildfire by a barricade blocking access to Highway 30.

One family swerved around the barricade and was safe in a nearby town 48 minutes later, another drove their four-wheel-drive car down a dirt road to escape. One man took a dirt road uphill, climbing above the fire and watching as Lahaina burned. He later picked his way through the flames, smoke and rubble to pull survivors to safety.

But dozens of others found themselves caught in a hellscape, their cars jammed together on a narrow road, surrounded by flames on three sides and the rocky ocean waves on the fourth. Some died in their cars, while others tried to run for safety.

“I could see from the bypass that people were stuck on the balconies, so I went down and checked it out,” said Kekoa Lansford, who made several trips into town to look for survivors. What he found was horrible, Lansford said, with dead bodies and flames like a hellish movie scene. “And I could see that people were on fire, that the fire was just being stoked by the wind, and being pushed toward the homes.”

The road closures — some because of the fire, some because of downed power lines — contributed to making historic Lahaina the site of the deadliest U.S. wildfire in more than a century.

We want to think that in a life-or-death crisis, the folks in uniform waving us on or stopping us are there to legitimately help us. We generally assume they have our safety in mind and are privy to more information about the disaster than we have. We’d like to believe that if there’s a barricade, it’s for our own safety and that there’s some unknown, even worse hazard beyond it. Because of this, most of us would be prone to follow directions in such an event.

But what if that isn’t the case?

To be absolutely clear, I’m not accusing the people manning those barricades of deliberately inflicting harm on the people of Lahaina. I cannot be privy to their reasons, and they’re certainly remaining mum about the many catastrophic mistakes that were made.

The lesson here is that in life-and-death situations, we must use our own best judgment. We cannot always rely on the judgment of others. Whether bad decisions are made with evil intent or due to a lack of acuity, the end result is the same. People die.

I’ve written before that in an emergency, survival is about surviving. It’s not about figuring out the grand conspiracy or identifying the culprits plotting behind our backs. It’s about living through the horrible event and keeping your family alive. You can spend time thinking it all through later.

In the case of Lahaina, I can’t tell you why those barricades were placed where they were, that sent people turning back into the fire. I have spent many hours thinking of the anguish and terror of those who faced that inferno, and I can’t get that out of my head. People died who could’ve lived if it had all been handled better.

The fine line between blind obedience and  reasonable cooperation

When I lived in California, in the middle of wildfire country up in the mountains, we had two close encounters with wildfires. Cal Fire has an extraordinary crew of wildland firefighters, the brave men, and women who move to a camp near a blaze and spend every waking moment out there trying to get it under control. I never had a single doubt that their mission was first to save lives and second to save property. They did an incredible job at it, and considering the vast amount of acreage that has been consumed by wildfires over the past decade, it’s astonishing how few people have died. The ones who died either got caught by surprise by a rapidly moving blaze or ignored evacuation orders.

There, I had trust in our firefighters and emergency personnel. I would have followed their instructions to the letter because I believed in them. They’d proven we could trust them.

But it seems like this could be an outlier. Perhaps it’s because, in California, we were so accustomed to natural disasters that the response is so good. However, we can look at authorities in other areas and see that often the response is NOT like this, and people’s lives are not so valued.

Everyone remembers the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, when some responders were reported to have joined in the lawlessness, looting and raiding, taking people’s weapons, and failing spectacularly at saving the victims of the disaster. (The officers were later cleared of looting charges, but for some murky reason, still suspended from their jobs.) Also, the leaders of New Orleans gave officers permission to shoot looters on sight. Would you feel that following the emergency directives from authorities such as these were unquestionable? I wouldn’t. I’d want to get as far away from them as possible and avoid them like I would any other threat in the aftermath of a disaster.

In another Louisiana incident, a massive flood saw the Cajun Navy, a group of well-organized local volunteers who had boats, prepare to rescue those trapped by the rising waters. They were turned away repeatedly because they didn’t have permission to rescue people but finally, local law enforcement accepted their help. But the good vibes didn’t last long when the government stepped in, wanting to charge Cajun Navy rescuers for licenses to help people. The government got in the way at every turn in the aftermath of this disaster and I wouldn’t have trusted one of those “authorities” any further than I could throw them.

We’ve seen mismanagement of disasters again and again and again.

You are your own first responder.

While I wouldn’t go so far as to say, “never trust emergency workers,” I’ll say this. The only person you can really trust to have the whole-hearted best interests of your family in an emergency is you. This is why you must be prepared in the following ways:

1.) Understand the emergencies your area is prone to experiencing. Where I live now, tornados are the threat. I’ve lived in wildfire country, hurricane country, and blizzard country. In each of these places, I took great care to understand the forces of nature I could face and to make a plan to survive these events.

2.) Know your area. I have always spent time driving around my area and learning multiple routes away from it. As a long-time Jeep owner, I used to traverse the side roads in California and find different ways down the mountain I lived on with my family. I’ve always enjoyed a drive (though with the price of gas, this gets a bit harder), and I’ve always tried to quickly learn the ins and outs of where I lived.

3.) Trust your gut. I really hesitated before writing this article because in many cases, the local authorities really do want to help people. They want to save lives and may have further information that you do not, which would make the route you’re going unsafe, like a bridge being out or something like that. In most situations, I do think that following instructions is probably the best course of action. But not in all of them. Clearly. You are a prepared, intelligent person. Emergencies are something you spend a lot of time thinking about and researching. If your every instinct is screaming inside your head, “No, this is wrong!” listen to it. If there’s time, ask questions to see if you’re just missing information. If there’s not time to get more information, you have to move past your social conditioning to follow the instructions of authorities and do what you have to do to save your family.

The people who were willing to disobey were the people who lived to tell the tale.

What are your thoughts?

Have you ever been in a situation in which authorities were giving bad instructions? How did it turn out for those who obeyed? What about those who didn’t obey? Would you be willing to bypass blockades and barriers or would you be hesitant to do so? Do you think authorities should always be heeded during emergencies?

Let’s discuss it in the comments section.

  • Daisy, as usual you hit the nail on the head. Sometimes the authorities actually do make things worse. During the Hayman Fire in CO, the Forest Service set a backfire, which got out of control and burned my dad’s home to the ground. That fire, incidentally, was begun when a glory seeking Forest Service employee started it, thinking she could call it in and put it out and be a hero,

    In any emergency we must depend on ourselves first and foremost.

    • So sorry to hear this Ray. This is one of my worst fears here where I live. Daisy did hit the nail on the head with this.

    • You should not trust the US Forest Service. Look up the formerly classified US military document titled “Forest Fire As A Military Weapon” to see how the US Forest Service was involved in the research and planning of this instruction manual in how to create and use forest fires as a weapon. Also be aware that the chemtrails are releasing highly flammable materials that makes forest fires worse and kills trees and plants. I served in the Navy for six years, more than half overseas, and I learned to not trust my own government.

      A great website that has a video on the above mentioned weaponized forest fires is posted at or . They also have a lot of information on human trafficking and abuse by the cabal.

  • Were those road barricades at Lahaini manned?
    If so, did those personnel die in the fire, too?
    Or did they somehow escape?

  • Fire is not the only way authorities are not looking out for us. Remember the doctors in covid who treated people as the gov told them to, and the nurses who vaccinated the public, then who went on strike when mandated to themselves. I myself was told to sign a confession when questioned by police for a crime. It was not a true statement, and when I refused to, the police said that I HAD to. I did, being naive back then (20 years ago) and obedient to police, and thinking there was a good justice system; so I signed it. Then on came the handcuffs, jail, etc… We cannot trust authority. Pastors preach the bible as inerrant infallible truth, but are taught in seminary (correctly) that it is lies. Authority positions are granted to those who follow the agenda of evil people in power. Soldiers murder innocent people as ordered to by commanding officers whom they wrongly trust have our nation’s well-being in heart, the politicians invade foreign nations “in defense”- no, it is offensive ( 9-11 demolition job had every politician in DC complicit). The people are conditioned to obey authority in church, in school, and in the media for control purposes.

    • Not all leaders are evil. For example King David, from scripture was a “man after Gods heart.” Was he perfect? Nope.
      While I do agree that many in positions of authority are very weak leaders who make decisions as they are told to, without leadership of some sort people tend to mill about wringing their hands.
      Very few can think logically on their own while under stress. You seriously can’t generalize but you also cannot blindly trust authority as Daisy wrote above.
      The plandemic is a perfect example of the trouble blind trust will get you in.
      Maui is a very visible example of the same. Those poor people. I can’t of anything much worse than burning to death. Our own woke/evil gov’t caused this tragedy😖
      Please take Daisy’s suggestions to heart. Best to start viewing yourself as being in a foreign land. Hone powers of observation, pay attention to what’s normal and what is not. Be ready and able to make decisions on your own. Don’t wait for or depend on the authorities to help you. Its becoming painfully obvious that many of them don’t care about you.
      That said, there are still a lot of good people out there😊

      • Brother, the bible is BS, I studied it 10,000 hours in full devout belief, then upon perceiving the nature of the faith, left it and debunked the bible thoroughly. THE UNTOLD NATURE OF CHRISTIANITY. David had a few good characteristics. A few. While running from Saul, he destroyed several Philistine (the Philistine king was his allie at the time) cities, killing even women and children, as he raided them. IT is recorded (that does not imply that it is true) that he attacked neighboring nations, won, and enslaved the survivors. Economic reasons, but the Hebrews were not poor. He was a bad parent, and that bad parenting led to his son’s rebelling against him, and the death of two or three of his sons. Of course not all authority is totally bad, and some would like to do good, but when I said that people in authority positions have been granted those positions because they have illustrated to the real powers behind the scenes that they will obey the agenda of those truly in power (the Vatican and globalists). And do not “prove” your point with a fictionalized character, it doesn’t hold water.

        • In response to Michael’s comment, I could not disagree more, and I do not feel that this is a forum that is meant to attack the faith of others. My husband and I are believers and we have five college degrees between us (my husband holds a doctorate). In our Sunday School classes, our fellow members have included judges, engineers, college professors, a former NCIS officer, and even a top employee for Lockheed who held high level security clearances. These are not foolish people. Faith is a matter of the the will, not intelligence. I don’t try to force my faith on anyone, but I do expect that others will have the same respect for people of faith as they expect for themselves.

          As for the original article, I completely agree that we have to be careful about blindly following orders during an emergency crises. I will never forget that during the attack on the towers on 911, people were told to remain in the towers until they were told to evacuate. Many who perished when the towers fell might have been saved if they had evacuated earlier. That was the day I decided that if I were ever in a dangerous crises situation, I would think for myself and act accordingly. The horror of the Maui fire has just solidified my resolve to do just that.

          • How many books have you written? Last I knew, there was freedom of speech in the US. My book on Christianity (and Judaism and Islam) includes many hundreds of scriptures to prove every one of the scores of points that I make. In other books I wrote, I debunked evolution, the justice system, showed the faults of the education system, and have proven the allopathic medical system to be faulty and dangerous from inception. I comprehend fully that the bible has been accepted on faith for centuries. But somebody, and that is me, has taken the axe to the foundations of the Roman civilization (my book ANGRY LOUD AND CLEAR TRUTH is subtitled THE GROWTH AND MECHANISMS OF THE ROMERICAN EMPIRE) and has cut down the rotten tree that was created by the Romans to rule over humanity in hell, and I bare the rot and venom of the snake. The Bible with its occult symbolism, contradicting concepts, bad values, outright lies, and spells, is buried deep in its own words in my book. Anybody can be deceived. The education system is designed to indoctrinate and program the students to fit into the establishment agenda, and with that in mind, being self-taught and not accepting all I read and am taught as truth, but skeptically and critically analyze everything worthy of doing so. That somebody from Lockheed Martin can be in Bible class is indicative of the character of the faith. Phony and catering to evil people. The military industrial complex is not a righteous endeavor for the pure of heart or righteous people. Can you not perceive that the establishment has lied to us? The empire book gives evidence that history has been tainted. Google Norman Dodd who speaks on that.

            • Michael Please Give it a Rest! This isn’t a forum to spout your anti Christian beliefs! You want to be an Atheist! Good for You! But don’t belittle people you don’t agree with and with such vitriol! Christianity preaches compassion & that most of humanity is born with a conscience to distinguish between good and bad .
              It doesn’t work on all because many are Psychopaths & Sociopaths! You make many good points but you dilute it by trying to make the Bible & Christians the problem. You claim you read it 10,000 times (I doubt it) but reading & practicing what’s said in Bible are 2 completely different things. Btw I don’t care how many books you’ve written, if somehow that makes you an expert! You sound like Fraudci ‘I’m the Science’ ! 🤮

          • Sherry, Amen … he somehow responded by saying how many books you’ve written as opposed to how many he’s written.. signs of an elitist ego maniac probably a liberal🤡 professor

        • Excerpts taken for the Bible must be in context.
          Also, it’s customary to give the scriptural reference to support what you’re saying.

          If you’ve put 10,000 hours into the Bible and that’s equivalent to five years of full-time work and have not learned enough to see the big picture your study was superficial and it could’ve been one hour of study repeated 10,000 times.

          You may have heard the term Scripture, interprets Scripture.

          Follow this link for a better explanation that I can give as well as additional information that may help you if you’re still willing to view this with an open mind.

          A lot of people think the Bible is full of errors because they do not understand that the Bible in the English language is translated from ancient Greek Hebrew, and Aramaic text
          that the average person does not understand.
          When studying the Bible, I often find myself referencing the original text, and the actual word the translators converted to English.
          Some of those words are translated others are transliterated.
          For example, there is no English word for baptize. The Greek letters were simply replaced with their English counterparts, same with deacon.

          Other errors, so called, are due to our modern traditions of accepting the way things are written at face value, and not considering the Whole Word of God in context.
          Romans 13 is the best example I know, and once Satan got the people to accept the misinterpretation, using a corrupt church, that government is to be blindly obeyed, well, the rest is history.

          Here is a very good sermon, considering the duties of civil government as it relates to God’s law.

          Pastor Matt Truwhella has several sermons on the doctrine of the lesser magistrate at

          In a nutshell, the doctrine teaches that when the superior magistrate fails in his duty then a lesser magistrate has the authority to act.
          This is demonstrated throughout scripture even to the point where no magistrate was willing to act and the people at large acted.

          1 Samual 14
          45 “And the people said unto Saul, Shall Jonathan die, who hath wrought this great salvation in Israel? God forbid: as the Lord liveth, there shall not one hair of his head fall to the ground; for he hath wrought with God this day. So the people rescued Jonathan, that he died not.“

          Another example where a lesser magistrate acted in the very presence of the highest magistrate is here:

          Numbers 25
          6 “And, behold, one of the children of Israel came and brought unto his brethren a Midianitish woman in the sight of Moses, and in the sight of all the congregation of the children of Israel, who were weeping before the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

          7 And when Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, saw it, he rose up from among the congregation, and took a javelin in his hand;

          8 And he went after the man of Israel into the tent, and thrust both of them through, the man of Israel, and the woman through her belly. So the plague was stayed from the children of Israel.”

          Read the whole chapter and you’ll see that the congregation were the priest and they were weeping / praying before the tabernacle.
          All of them, even Moses, saw what was going on, and none acted.
          However, Phinehas, a Lesser magistrate seeing that his superiors did not act did was necessary, and was richly rewarded by God.
          From the story of where the people interpose himself between Saul and Jonathan, he can conclude that had Phinehas not acted any one of the common people could’ve done what he did, and the result would’ve been the same.

          Now, do not get the idea that you can just rush out and tip every windmill. You you must be acting in Gods Law and under His authority and timing.
          You must also be righteous before the Lord.
          Better that you become, an Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel or any one of the prophets before you rush out and try to be an Ehud.
          See Judges Ch 3.

          you can prep all you want,
          accumulate all the supplies, tools, and equipment you can, you can fill a Superdome up, but it won’t make any difference unless you are a Christian following God’s law.
          If you are not, those supplies will be destroyed, or they will be taken by somebody else, and you will have simply been God’s tool to provide for His people.

          Proverbs 21
          31 “The horse is prepared against the day of battle: but safety is of the Lord.“

          1 Samuel 17:47
          “And all this assembly shall know that the LORD saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the LORD’S, and he will give you into our hands.“

          A word to the wise is sufficient.

    • The Police or person of authority is given permission to lie. I heard an ex-district attorney say that 90% of his convictions were people spilling they’re guts after the incident. Always exercise your rights……. Btw, most police are upstanding!!

    • If I am ever at a police dept for any reason under questioning, my first sentence will be,,,,,I want a lawyer…NOW.

  • This was an excellent article and I wholeheartedly agree. What I thought though is that we need to use this idea, of being responsible for our own lives, in other areas; not just for catastrophic emergencies. But also in our personal lives.. ie, our health. Back in March of this year, my husband’s “chronic” back/leg pain brought him to a halt. He hasn’t worked since, yet. The first doctor he went to (w/o me) simply put him on two prescriptions, one for pain and the other for an unrelated issue. My husband is 80 and is not on any meds! Within two weeks, he had leg swelling/edema and the PT prescribed for him was making things worse. I was able to start taking him to his appts and we fired that dr. We also stopped taking the two prescriptions though he was taking otc pain killers till about 6 weeks ago. (Now he only takes supplements).
    We both started researching natural supplements and got several that he is still taking. We found another doctor that was not pill happy and after many tests discovered just how healthy my husband is. 😉 It came to my mind though, that even though we have learned much about my husband… all the things not wrong with him, they have done nothing to improve his situation. But improve he did! The supplements he is taking I believe are working. He no longer has leg swelling/edema and has progressed from a walker to two canes, to often one cane or none at all here around the house. He does hope to keep working when he regains strength and better balance. We should (and ultimately are) be responsible for all areas of our lives and have abdicated way too much in my opinion.
    I know this is rather off topic in a way.. but not really. My goal is for us to both be in great shape when it all falls apart.

    • Janice –this past April I must have pulled something in my back while mowing and I do have a little back ache time to time so thought nothing of it…I’m 73 now and take no prescriptions and have no family doctor and as the pain worsened, within a week, I was at the ER for the pain. I made 4 night visits in one week!!!!!!!!
      I searched the internet after I was convinced I was dealing with idiots and found all my symptoms and the article called it a big name and suggested simple amoxicillin…now, I had some type of antibiotic prescribed 4 times, each visit already, big names new to me.
      I had amoxy I got online and keep here ‘if’ I need it…within 24 hours, I was walking, skipping, smiling at how great God is when I need Him.
      I will NEVER trust the medical profession ever again.

      Yes, the tablets are from the fish site…I keep them here. Have saved a doctor visit or two when I have sinus problems.

      I will pray for your husband.

    • Not off topic at all, Janice, imho. Medical gaslighting is the WORST from my experience. Have had so many horrific experiences caused by doctors “helping” me. No thanks, they’ll “help” me into the morgue a lot faster than I want to, imho.

  • I live in “tornado alley” and really only need to be aware of conditions “being ripe” for tornado development. We are so very thankful that we usually get many days notice this could happen. Now the flip side; I have a horrible irrational fear of fire after treating patients in the local burn unit. My own version of PTSD. My first inclination, via my lizard brain, would be to flee the fire at whatever cost necessary. I would pray that nobody tries to stop me as I am fairly certain it would escalate to violence against the barrier.

  • The Cajun navy blockaid was Katrina. The licensing fiasco was in Houston after Henry if I remember that one right

    • Reason I got the hell out of Houston Hellhole right after Harvey. Cajun Navy rescued my niece and her dog and her box of bottles of liquor from her ROOF after Harvey hit. Back half of our house collapsed during Harvey, which was a Godsend because it forced us to move out of that illrun, poorly managed libtard corrupt craphole of a city.
      one of my buddies is Cajun Navy and he says city officials from Beaumont all the way into Houston were blocking them from assisting

  • This is right-you may need to disobey a road block in a fire if you know it leads to safety. Once the line breaks thru, follow the pack out and dont stop! This is survival of the most aggressive! With DEW’s you are a sitting duck to get fried while ‘lawfully’ sitting ‘in line’. Also, the same thing happened in the Paradise, California fires. The police blocked the only exit. Motorcycles got out. The cars were melted. With this class of disaster, assume that every government official from top to bottom is ‘in on it’, one way or another.
    And, if you have a motorcycle, get on it if you dont have family to transport. Drive thru yards and woods if necessary. If u think of it, quickly tape up your license tag.
    We all should keep N-95 masks with the exhaust vent at home, in the car, motorcycle & boat. Get the 3M 10 pack of masks from Lowes or Home Depot for about $25.

  • Daisy, this post just solidified some things for me, as far as fires and bugging out. My extremely small inner circle and I, live in a once-rural area of Texas, with one way in and one way out. My lil circle has been discussing bug outs for here should there be a fire but have not come up with good plan. There is a small lake that I am 10 minutes walking from BUT we are in a never before seen drought, Lake is being used to provide water for not only my small town but major outlying cities like San Antonio and again, this was once rural but we have some blue city refugees moved here (which we welcome) and then ALOT of blue city “libtards” who are trying to turn this into some type of utopian concrete 15 minute city that have moved here.
    I can only imagine that were there to be a fire, and we only have 4 fireplugs in my entire subdivision, we’d be like the poor folks in Maui. All of us rushing to the lake. There were already 2 major fires that just now got under control last week in towns near me. All this I say because the plan I had , to bugout, may not actually work, due to one way in and out of this town, LITERALLY.
    I have no plan, except move. LOL Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks and God Bless and Protect Us ALL

  • “catastrophic mistakes were made..”
    No, Daisy, mistakes were not made in Lahaina. It was intentional. Residents report that in addition to barricades on the only roads out of the town, the water was shut off, and kids were not permitted to go to school that day. Consequently, many kids were home alone while parents were at work.
    Over the last year I’ve heard a lot about Directed Energy Weapons (DEW). I was hoping it was BS. It isn’t. There’s a 9 year old video online, put out by the Navy, showing the weapon on the deck of a ship, and explaining how it works. It’s like an enormous laser that incinerates its target. Aerial footage shows a perfect oval of fire around the historic area of Lahaina. No natural fire burns that way.
    There are, of course, naval bases in the Hawaiian islands.
    Five years ago a very similar fire destroyed Paradise, CA. Photos of the destruction look the same as Lahaina. People back then were talking about it being caused by DEW.
    Mistakes were not made with the jabs and the rest of the plandemic nightmare. Mistakes were not made in Lahaina either. The majority of the residents are sure of that.
    The globalist scum want us dead. For real.

    • SMH I fully agree with you. Anyone who’s been following all the evil done to us today must agree. So many train de-railings, unnatural fires, 9/11 and I could go on and on. Those “people” want us DEAD!!!

    • so true, nothing is done by mistake anymore, its all well planned and executed with numerous advantages to the instigators. These events are engineered, some totally illogical things they throw in, but this is only MK-Ultra to make us think they are incompetent, but no one is accountable anyway. The age of terror attacks has ceased, now its the age of wildfires (aka the climate change religion).. take heed not to be deceived.

  • Thank you Daisy for addressing the Maui tragedy. The more I hear about what’s going on, the more questions I have. While I know that humans are not perfect and make mistakes, there have been so MANY “mistakes” during the Maui fire that it seems impossible that the “authorities” were that incompetent. Blocking the main road out of town so people burned in their cars; turning off the water so the people and firefighters could not fight the fire; not sounding the warning sirens to warn the people; closing down donation centers set up by locals so no one could donate food, water, clothing; FEMA staying in $1,000/night luxury hotel while claiming they will be out of money by mid September; and FEMA blocking anyone from posting pictures of the site. While I understand they do not want a media circus, all these incidents do not make sense – at least to normal logical thinking people.

    If it was not obvious before, it should be a punch in the gut obvious after the past 3 years that the “authorities” and “experts” do not have our best interests in mind. In fact, they would prefer that we just shut up and do as we are told even if that means disability and/or death because they do not care.

    Sadly, Maui is not the only instance of “mistakes” being made by “authorities”. Here is a link to a cell phone video of people in Canada trying to help neighbors fight the wild fires there as well as bring food and water to those people who cannot get out. The “authorities” are blocking access to a bridge so people cannot deliver food and water to their neighbors and when asked why the bridge is being blocked, the officer responds that he is “just following orders”. This has all happened before and it will happen again.

  • Have I ever been in a situation in which authorities were giving bad instructions? Well, COVID comes to mind.

  • I have responded as a national disaster volunteer for over 25 years. I can tell you your correct. I evaluate the situation and make my on decisions as to how to escape an area and save my life and that of others. I have done that 4 times. Law Enforcement directing traffic become trained professional bureaucrats (for all the good they do under normal circumstances). They follow what ever their commanders/masters tell them bad or good. They don’t question authority. Don’t you make their same mistake. There always needs to be orderly process. But if my actions are not putting others in harms way I make and carry out my own decisions on how to save my own life given to me by God not the state. Plus I always use discernment given by God or ask my Guardian spirits on what to do

  • People don’t trust the FDA, CDC, FBI, CIA after the plandemic and Trump witch-hunts. Now, the Maui fire response has further destroyed confidence in “professionals” like police and emergency response and their management. Without full disclosure of what happened and visible punishment of incompetence or malfeasance, only morons are going to listen to people with supposed authority over life and death in the future. You’re on your own.

  • Its becoming very obvious the Government is not our friend. Trust your own Gut, DO NOT COMPLY. Never follow GPS, use Paper Maps and know all escape routes of the less traveled roads well in advance. Pre-plan all threats,.. The GPS system will funnel all the driving masses onto the same roadway in an emergency such as a hurricane. Imagine that chaos and road congestion as the clown who throws a box of roofing nails out on the highway to slow everybody down. Do you have a tire plug kit to repair tires multiple times over and a 12V air pump? Is your bug out bag ready to grab and go with a case of drinking water and a week or 2 of food? The threats are coming almost daily in all areas of the world. Situational awareness is key, and remember personal security tools to grab and go with you.

  • Indeed….everyone should become as self-reliant as possible, and work with your family, friends and neighbors to identify how you would deal with situations like the ones described – so you get out alive.

  • Keep in mind this is not the first time the Leviathan has stepped in and totally ruined the lives of American citizens. A long time ago-2005-in NOLA, Hurricane Katrina hit. Hizzoner told the sheeple to shelter in the stadium. You all know what happened. A free-thinking young man commandeered a RTD bus and took up a collection from the passengers for fuel. He then drove the bus out of NOLA and saved the passengers. Did he violate “the law”? Meh. He saved lives. Bleib ubrig.

  • Your council is correct. Ultimately you are responsible for yourself. Have also been thru a forest fire. Last words of advice from my head county sheriff were don’t die. As I assured him, I knew every road, driveway, pasture, and if needed game trail in my forest. I was prepared and accepted the consequences of my decision to stay. I also got lucky with the answer to a ton of fast prayers about questionable decisions.

  • Fantastic intelligent advice, Daisy. It is wildfires here in NW Oregon, and I do not trust many of the extremely woke authorities. Portland is already listed by some as a potential “smart” city. What does that say about what the tyrants want to preserve and what they want to destroy? So I keep my instincts honed.

  • saw something like your “Road Closed” example on a reality show – there was an earthquake – the TV show hit the road barricade and the indicated bypass was just a ridiculous “X” miles round-about tour of the state ….

    decision made on going around the barricade and deciding for themselves – freaking pavement was cracked on the otherwise perfect road – no other damage or hazards found >>> just some office bound bureaucrat’s decision screwing up people’s lives ….

    need to be prepped to move a barricade if necessary in a SHTF type emergency – pull K Rail concrete blocks apart to allow travel – a road closed for normal times construction might still be the best travel route ….

  • I don’t listen to the Government Weenies for ANY advise and I damn sure don’t obey Government Weenies during a disaster. People in Government are usually clueless boobs who are there just for the Money & Power.

  • 1. The police chief who gave the order, John Pelletier, was the incident commander in the Law Vegas 2017 shootings. That incident was one in the biggest coverups in US history.
    2. The police chief had 7 formal complaints against him of dictatorial and hostile work environment within 7 months of starting. The police force hated and feared the man.
    3. Several people reported that the police who were near Lahaina were acting very strange before the fire. Besides blocking the road that they could plainly see was endangering the public, people reported that some of the police were in a sort of catatonic state, not responding to people asking them questions, they were just staring straight ahead.

  • I think it would be good to have a family or friends conference to think and talk about various disasters in their area. Then a group should go adventuring; not just in autos, but on foot, on bicycles, maybe horseback, to find different pathways, where those pathways lead, and the amount of time it takes to get to points A,B,C or more. Know your area in all ways. We are so used to jumping in the car, and hitting the paved roadway to get somewhere. Yet, knowing if there is an old rail track that is bike friendly that would get everyone out quickly, quietly, and allow passage without interference could be very beneficial. All of us need to be self educated and self aware.

    • My late husband and I had an agreed place(address) to go if need We even had a second place for both to get to if the first place was inaccessible.

  • Excellent article. We are on Oahu, so the heartache for Maui is very near to us here.
    I was In Australia when 9/11 happened, and I remember making the very conscious decision that in an emergency I would absolutely disregard authorities if I didn’t think they were making a call in my best interest for survival. I remember people being told NOT to evacuate the 2nd tower after the first was hit, and thinking I wouldn’t care who told me not to go, I’d be out of there as fast I could possibly go.
    If there is a disaster, I will do everything in my power to get far from it well before it even has a chance to trap me. Of course, that isn’t always possible, but disregarding authorities would give me zero guilt or pause in that situation.
    I wish more people felt the same.

  • As soon as we start to put 100% faith in “humans” we will suffer. I do not believe that most of the evil pigdogs walking around destroying our planet and humanity are human at all. I find it fascinating how the anti-human, anti-Earth death cult has infiltrated every town and city in the Western world including Lahaina and the city I live in. No species willingly destroys its’ own home and its’ own kind. We are not dealing with humans but some type of evil critters that hate humans. Demonic, evil aliens, evolved reptilians, take your pick. Here in communist Canada evil entities are now burning down our country as much as possible. In fact our Team Barbie PM stated months ago that our “wildfire” season would last into the fall this year. Not only does he play with Barbie, he also can apparently foretell the future.
    May God damn them all to eternal raping burning hell from whence they came and I wouldn’t trust one fucking word out of any “authority’s” lying, satanic mouth. Panic is a very tricky thing, it confuses the mind, I too have wondered did the Lahaina cops all burn to death as well, where did they evacuate to? Have never heard any clear answer on this.

  • Let’s just hope the next disaster is so huge and widespread that all the cops and government goons that try to kill even more people are the first to be eliminated as part of a long list of changes that would have to be made in order for anyone to survive. If people survive there will have to be an other mechanism put in play that replaces corporate policy enforcers (cops) from ever existing again. May have to have a constitutional amendment banning them for ever.

  • Today again after all is said about Lahaina the truth is still for many HARD TO BELIEVE
    SEPT 1 and it is now obvious
    Scorched EARTH
    Is fact
    Again my fellow Americans this is a FACT
    Military tactic known as
    Scorched Earth stands in the Light of day
    On the day i posted this very statement
    My fellow Americans every morning the reason today
    I like to in the hope many will take me very
    Pray every morning
    Psalm 91
    ONE PEOPLE now face a EVIL
    Seen in the land of the brave before
    Simple to understand
    Psalm 91
    Fine this copy
    The season of WAR is here
    He will call upon me and I WILL ANSWER
    Psalm 91 will bring you home ,bring you thru the walk in any valley
