Regular readers here know that I seldom refer to videos in my blogs and comments. Today, however, I depart from this normal rule, because a number of people did send some very unusual videos of the fire damage in California, and for once, given the nature of the strangeness of what I've seen about those fires, I watched them, and want to pass them along to you, with apologies for the amount of time each video represents.

On and on we could go... This video includes the video I posted earlier of the tree burning from inside out. Now sap will conduct heat, but the problem here is the tree so burning is surrounded by trees which are not burning. The patterns in evidence - as one commentator to these videos who stated that he was a professional firefighter for 30 years - are not normal. That's putting it mildly.

What's unusual about these videos, and I've selected only two, there are many more, is that various means are being proposed for the strangeness of the damage we're seeing. Tress that are burned, but not houses; houses that are burned, but not trees. There is nothing normal about it. But what is intriguing is that in proposing mechanisms to explain all this two seem to be being bandied about: military grade accelerants (nanothermite), and electromagnetic, specifically, microwave, weapons. And we've seen that pattern of explanation before, with 9/11.

Additionally, since I blogged previously about the possibility that these fires may have been deliberately set, and that authorities suspect the same, and even suspect possible drug cartel involvement to take out the local marijuana growing industry, this raises disturbing possibilities. Namely, if this is the case of some extra-territorial or non-state actor being involved, then this means it has access to some pretty sophisticated technologies, and is willing and able to use them. Again, shades, possibly, of 9/11. One need not mention, again, the statements of former US Defense secretary William Cohen that such technologies exist and that they may have fallen into the hands of such non-territorial and non-state actors. The lockdown of the area by the military -ostensibly to prevent looting - also would be corroborative of the fact that someone in authority "suspects something" and is gathering (or surpressing) evidence.

This one I suspect is a case of "you tell me", but the bottom line here is, there is little that is "normal" about these fires.

See you on the flip side...

    Here’s an interesting interview with California Fire Captain John Lord who “speaks out about the possible directed energy weapons used to start over 16 major fires that began in the middle of the night in Napa/Sonoma/Mendocino Counties. To date, some three weeks after the fires, officials have not gone on record as to the origins of these fires.” He also mentions that he is “aware of” Agenda 21… Posted November 4, 2017:

    The fires in Portugal and Spain seem suspect too. War between US and “spanish” factions?

    In the american case it is obviously some kind of weapon. Especially the drone photo shows this very clearly Houses like islands, totally levelled to the ground, twisted steel beams etc etc. That´s weapons and no normal fires.

    Interesting story and accompanying video. Maybe something else is going on, and maybe not. I’ve found some interesting links re the colour of smoke and why some trees burn quicker than others, and why some houses/property caught up in forest fires burn more easily than others.

    How different trees impact the spread of wildfire$department/deptdocs.nsf/all/formain15737/$file/BraggCreek-DifferentTreeSpecicesImpactWildfire-Aug03-2012.pdf?OpenElement

    The art of reading smoke, where it says ‘Brown smoke indicates that wood is being heated to its ignition’. temperature New Wildfire Science Shows That Small Steps Can Save Homes, Communities (article 2014)
    When a wildfire swept through 2,000 acres in the hills north of San Diego, California, in May, it left behind a curious checkerboard of destruction. One neighborhood was reduced to ashes and twisted metal. But houses nearby suffered little more than scorched grass and singed trees.

    Captain Richard Cordova of the state firefighting agency, Cal Fire, visited the scene and quickly hit on one explanation for the fire’s apparent favoritism.

    Many of the homes that survived had little flammable brush in the area immediately around them. But others had dry grass and shrubs within feet of the walls. “Those were the ones that unfortunately did burn down,” Cordova said.
    As the summer wildfire season enters full swing in the United States, with more than 700,000 acres now burning in the Pacific Northwest and California, the difference between a surviving house and a charred husk could come down to details as small as screens over attic vents, trimmed trees, or pine needles in the gutters.

    In fact, in the past ten years scientists have gained a whole new understanding of factors that can help a home survive a wildfire. And it turns out that saving a house has less to do with stopping a forest fire cold or creating a nonflammable moonscape for a hundred feet in every direction. It’s more about lots of minor modifications and regular maintenance.
    “It’s the little things,” said Michele Steinberg of the National Fire Protection Association, whose Firewise program works to educate American homeowners and communities about protecting themselves from wildfires. “That’s the surprising fact for folks. I’m thinking I have to chop down every tree in the forest to protect my home, but what’s really going to get me is the mulch up against the house or the doggy door that isn’t sealed.” For Steve Quarles, the new thinking on fireproofing crystallized in 2003, when he was sifting through ashes from the massive Cedar Fire in southern California. The blaze destroyed 2,200 homes, killed 15 people, and helped introduce the term “fire siege” into the local lexicon. Then a scientist at the University of California who was studying what happened to structures in wildfires, Quarles found green bushes and blooming flowers next to houses reduced to cinders. How would a fire leave such an odd pattern?

    He went looking for a culprit that could set a house on fire without torching everything around it. He found it in tiny embers, or firebrands, as they are known among wildfire scientists. Blown far from a wildfire by the wind, these bits of burning debris can wreak havoc if they collect in flammable spots around a house: a gutter filled with pine needles, an unscreened vent leading into an attic, or a trash can left open against a wall.
    That’s different from an older belief—one still widely held by the public—that a wildfire’s dramatic, towering flames march through a neighborhood, incinerating buildings in their path. Earlier scientific research into home destruction during wildfires had focused on how close a sustained fire, like a burning bush, needed to be to a home to set it ablaze.

    But firebrands can shower a house that’s situated a quarter mile or more from a wildfire. So they’ve become a central focus for Quarles, who now spends his days searching for the chinks in a house’s armor as a senior scientist at the insurance industry-funded Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety.

    Just something to think on.

    A hint of possible ‘background planning’ for the CA inferno: Lack of large fire-fighting aircraft.

    Years back, Congress finally mandated retiring ‘ancient’ aircraft when wings started coming off (a video of a B-24’s wings folding was particularly gruesome). Good. However, Congress then refused to pony-up the cash to get newer aircraft (mostly ex-military) into the fight. This created a huge shortfall, especially in those aircraft most useful for fire-fighting: large-payload types. (Most helicopter payloads are photogenic, but useless in practice.) That shortfall included this year.

    Worse, Congress held the actual fire-fighting fleets as ‘privatized’. There is no US owned-and-operated fight-fighting fleet, ready to go when/where needed. Instead, the Forest Service contracts with individual operators, trying to squeeze the last dollar out of each YEARLY contract. There is no incentive for long-range planning and procurement under those conditions. Especially for ‘boneyard’ 767 & DC-10 sized aircraft…

    There was a ‘boneyard’ converted 747 – tested and ready to go – held on the ground by the Forest Service during these CA fires because the FS wanted the best contract from the private owners. I can’t tell you how angry I am about that…

    Does anyone know if Dr. Judy Wood has commented on these fires? She seems to know how materials like nanothermite operates.

  8. Doc Fields on October 27, 2017 at 3:56 pm

    I live in Santa Rosa, and saw the fires burn monday morning in this city at the front lines. It was after the crazy wind storms. Also I sneaked into the burned neighborhoods in the hills, and walked around the burned blocks within the city. So I would say I got a reasonable on the ground look at everything.

    Theories regarding the ignition from directed energy/ atmospheric conductivity as evidenced by the blue sparks in the air coupled with weather modification to create that narrow band of intense wind that night, seem possible and likely to me.

    However, videos like the one above I.M.H.O. are discrediting our alternative research community. Consider these points:
    -Wind driven fires can get very hot, think of a smelting rig. Wind force is velocity^2.
    -The dynamics of how the wind is whipping around houses, cars, and trees within neighborhoods(not solid wooded forests) explains the burn patterns.
    -Car roofs, engines, and some rims are made out of Aluminum which is very heat conductive.
    -A glass bottle in a campfire can melt.
    -I saw burned cars directly downwind of a house, and marred ones directly upwind.
    -I saw all the steel remain in house rubble, some warped from the heat and load, while the Aluminum melted.

    In conclusion it is the wind patterns that direct the inferno horrizontially across the landscape has caused the selective damage, and material science explains the state of the contents.

    I have watched Dr. Wood, and what she presents upon the physical evidence for 9/11 seems solid to me. Those claiming that these weapons were used here need a stronger case then what has been presented. A video showing differential burn patterns in an emotionally charged way, while ignoring common sense explanations just doesn’t cut it.

      Thank you Doc for your comment and sharing your first hand, eye witness on the ground experience and observations. I was interested to see what Rosa Koire, author of “Behind the Green Mask,” who also lives in Santa Rosa had to say. In her blog dated October 30, 2017 she also comments upon the strangeness of the wind the night the fires began. In summation she writes:

      “Now that the fires are out we have seen hundreds of acres of land scarred with destroyed structures, blackened trees, lone fireplaces, and melted cars. The areas that burned in Santa Rosa range from million dollar homes in the Fountaingrove hillsides to the modest Coffey Park neighborhood to the trailer park that now looks like a melted mass of twisted metal. Although I’ve been sent someone’s YouTube video showing the northeast area of Santa Rosa as a targeted Agenda 21 ‘development area’ or a ‘redevelopment area’, this is incorrect. What that map shows is about 12 individual development sites i.e. home sites that were currently permitted for home construction.

      “The question is “Will the destruction of single family homes across the city spark more Smart Growth high density development that can be pushed through with Delphi meetings pressuring the populace?” “Will this fire be the excuse to refuse building permits for single family homes?” “Will rural lands controlled by Pacific Gas & Electric, non-profit land trusts, and individuals be better managed in the future to clear brush and dead trees?”

      “There is an investigation into the source of the fires. Along with all of you we have concerns and look forward to more information. All investigations and all sources must be considered.”

    Melting steel and iron in an open air burn is very tough to do. Many, years ago I saw a fire video that the arsonist had placed within the burn site, a special accelerant. It was soooo hot, that when the local FD turned their hoses on it, it cracked the H2O into H / O and it was as though the water had become fuel.

    So, the questions are, what was the delivery method of the “accelerant” over such a large area? Were there other factors involved Plasma, HF, electromagnetic, etc?? And finally, why did these fires pop out of the ground almost simultaneously?? The evidence is clear, the burn was directed..

  12. basta on October 27, 2017 at 11:03 am

    I, like WD, would first point to the Agenda 21 crowd, who believe humans are a pest to rid the land of, in cahoots with the Disaster Capitalist vultures (as these “events” are almost always done with the collusion of several different lawless elite gangs).

    I also think a lot of the weirdness going on with the fires can be ascribed to the buildup of aluminum in trees and plants due to the massive chemtrail spraying that California has been subjected to over the last 10-15 years. They spray far out over the Pacific and so the state’s rains are laden with nano-particles of heavy metals, and fast-growing species like softwoods & pines (which are already highly combustible) will absorb a great deal of aluminum over time.

    Now aluminum particulate burns quite easily and at very high temperatures — and in fact it would act quite like nano-thermite. So this may be why some plants burn and others do not — the slow-growing, hardwood species do not absorb as much aluminum and are more resistant to fire as well.

    As for the woman in the video who is shocked! shocked! that nothing is left after the houses burned down — well, have you ever seen a stand US McMansion being built? They’re made of pressed cardboard and plastic and held together with duct tape and glue, and then filled with stuff made of same, and I am entirely not surprised that they burn to cinders with nothing left in the blink of an eye.

    I don’t want to assume linkages where there are none. There may be no dots to connect at all here and I could be miles from the solution with this speculation. Still, it should be said. One does not require drug cartels or other international bogeymen on which to hang this one when we have a domestic variety possessing this capability who “own” a nation state.

    In the past few months we’ve heard numerous reports and threats from separatist groups pushing California into seceding from the union. California is one region of the country whose internal politics is just unpredictable enough to make the Deep State nervous. That states debt is clearly out of control and spending needs to be tightly curtailed or it would crumble. California is a real mess. If the Deep State were upset at any governor’s performance over the past few years, Governor “Moonbeam” Brown might qualify. If he is in their sights to “moderate” all it would take is a spark within his imagination to help him identify his real problem. This could put a stop to any talk of secession and open the printing presses to intervene and cover these losses at the cost of moderating the state’s politics. The national debt increases, the owners of the Federal Reserve are absolutely thrilled and everyone is now one big happy family again.

    Why would I suggest such a thing? Look what happened to New Jersey when Governor Christy kissed Obama’s ring in an election in the aftermath of a hurricane. Look at the total military lockdown of the Caribbean to cleanup after Hurricane Hillary–an occupation that will continue to preserve security in the region while preventing the disclosure of some serious national security secrets. Ever anxious to get the most mileage from a single “display of control over natural forces” this same group of people may also be in contact with a certain munchkin (their opinion of him and not necessarily mine) in Pyongyang with the message: “See what can happen to you if you persist with this crazy tirade you’re pitching? We strongly suggest you find an honorable way to moderate your behavior or we can make things really hot for you. We don’t need war to make you and your assets real targets. Nature is one tough mother and we know how to emulate her behavior.”

    Bottom line: I think we have a group of people in our Deep State who possesses the technologies in play and having the motive and opportunities to consolidate their control for a future “main event”. After all they have a destiny to manifest or die trying!

    • OrigensChild on October 27, 2017 at 10:23 am

      For the sake of a better understanding, I am not suggesting this as a logical thread of anything except events that are suspicious and having hidden motivations pointing back toward the Deep State. I will not pretend to have figured it out. This caricature was penned with a heavy emphasis on pride and petty. After all, to qualify for membership in the Deep State these two traits are members of a larger subset one needs for candidacy in that club. Finally, the reference to mother nature has no intended profanity attached. Mother nature can be rough enough without even going there. This adds two more traits to the larger subset: brutish and bully.

  14. WalkingDead on October 27, 2017 at 9:26 am

    One other suspicious aspect of these fires is the overlap of the shape of the areas burned with the layout of Agenda 21/30 designated areas. China has built a large amount of “ghost cities” which they are now filling with displaced small traditional farmers by force. We may be seeing a similar event occurring here in the Universally Surveilled States of Amerika through the use of exotic military weaponry, “Weather weaponry” (think Houston, Florida, and the Caribbean Islands) and Chemtrailing dumping accelerants over targeted areas rather than overt force.
    “Disaster capitalists” have already descended on these areas offering 40 cents on the dollar cash for destroyed properties in these regions. Insurance companies are settling the claims quickly. The MSM follows the usual government line that these were “natural” fires or arson with absolutely no investigation into their absolutely “unnatural” nature. Predictable.
    “We the People” have been declared enemies of the state, one need only review the definition of “terrorist” in Fed. Gov. documentation to realize this. I would even go so far as to state that we are in the beginning of an undeclared war on “We the People” by our “government”. Every federal agency, and I do mean EVERY one of them, have been armed to the teeth with military type weaponry and billions of rounds of ammunition.
    To add insult to injury, in some locations you are even required to seemingly declare allegiance to a small ME nation to even get disaster relief funding. Explain that to me, if you can.
    The ZioNazis are now in the process of shutting down the Alt News media, the only source of actual real news left, and pushing hard and relentlessly for the disarmament of the population. This is how freedom ends and tyranny begins.
    Once this is accomplished, it’s game over.

I was looking at that the other day and now this fellow has shown a comparison of that along with the outline of a previous fire in the same area 53 years ago with a similar footprint.

    The “authorities” just hate to admit there is some group or force they cannot control, as we have seen time and again; comes from the “control freak” mentality.
    Let’s see if anything comes out on the insurance compensation side. There will always be some dissatisfied party that takes them to court – unless the PTB’s (of which insurers form part) are REALLY so scared to speak out that claims are just paid out, no questions asked, c/o Fed money printing.
