The Land Wars: I Fell Into A Burning Ring of Fire

I only wish this article was about Johnny Cash’s song, one of my favorites! Instead, it’s about the wildfires that are ravaging Texas: “It was like a ring of fire. There was no way out. All four main roads were closed. A wind came in and blew the fire in the opposite direction. That saved my life.”

The Texas Panhandle is on fire. One of the blazes, the Smokehouse Creek Fire, is the largest fire in state history. To date, it has burned over one million acres, more than half the size of the state of Rhode Island.

The fires have moved with alarming speed, hastened by the high winds in the area. The Smoke House Creek Fire doubled in size in less than a day, driven by gusts of winds and unseasonably warm temperatures.


One man described his harrowing, narrow escape as the flames engulfed his neighborhood. The smoke was so thick, he couldn’t see anything. He didn’t think he was going to get out alive. The charred terrain is being described as a moonscape—everything is gone.

The small town of Fritch was hit hard by 2014 wildfires, and the town of under 2,000 people has been hit hard again. People cannot return to the area yet due to safety concerns. When they do, they will not recognize the place. Imagine returning to your home only to find it burned to the grown, or worse, imagine watching your home burn, helpless to do anything about it.

It’s interesting that a smart city is in the works for an area surrounding Amarillo, Texas, very near Canadian, Texas, also one of the hardest hit areas. Where have we heard this before? Oh, yes, in Maui, which we wrote extensively about in Something Is Terribly Wrong in Maui, Part 1 and Part 2.

The fires are so widespread that Texas Governor Greg Abbott has issued a disaster declaration for 60 of the 254 counties in Texas. He reported that military veterans, the elderly and young families have been displaced, and that about 500 structures have burned. Did any of those structures have blue roofs? Joe Biden seems to think that if a Texas structure has the right color roof, the house would be spared from the fire. Biden said this at his speech when he visited the Texas border, and said it again during his March 7 State of the Union address: “If you fly over these areas that are burned to the ground, you’ll see in the midst of 20 homes that are just totally destroyed, one home sitting there because they have the right roof on it.”

There were so many fact check articles the next day discounting Biden’s blue roof comment, and that should tell anyone that you are on to something. However, Biden really did say it, and here it is in the official White House transcript, too.

Directed Energy Weapon?

Naturally, Biden is referring to the famous blue roof “conspiracy” regarding the Maui Lahaina fires. Many celebrities like Oprah Winfrey painted their roofs blue. In fact, so many people did that the local hardware store ran out of blue paint. Blue cars and sun umbrellas were also spared. We wrote extensively about the Maui fires in Something Is Terribly Wrong in Maui, Part 1 and Part 2.

What do Biden (and Oprah) know that we don’t? Does Biden know that a directed energy weapon (DEW) was used to start the Texas wildfires? Certainly fires start in the dry, brushy panhandle of Texas all the time, but was this time different?

Residents with home security cameras have reported images of green lasers. There were also these sightings reported in Maui. Both times, mainstream media outlets were quick to discount any conspiracy theories regarding nefarious activity. Instead, the public is being told that these lasers are survey lasers used to do topographical mapping. They’re purportedly used by the US military for geological use for scanning the Earth’s surface. (Note that it’s pretty flat in the Texas panhandle and that hasn’t changed much – for decades. So why the need for topographical mapping? Just sayin’.)

The US military has been using these lasers over the Hawaiian Islands since at least 2013. Most of the major defense contractors make these green survey lasers, including Boeing, Northrup Grumman, Raytheon and Lockheed Martin. Note that all these companies also make directed energy weapons. Lockheed Martin makes a high-energy laser weapon called LANCE (Laser Advancements for Next-generation Compact Environments); they delivered that to the Air Force in June 2022. Two months later, they delivered HELIOS, a high-energy weapon, to the US Navy.

Spontaneous or Directed?

We may never know for sure whether these fires were spontaneous or directed. However, there are some very interesting occurrences that make one question the spontaneity of these fires.

Smart cities: We began writing about 15-minute cities over a year ago. First, the Texas fires have a very similar pattern to Maui – wipe out the area to rebuild a smart city. Amarillo began city planning of this nature in 2010. Recently, they launched Vision 2045, an update to the 2010 plan. The city said it is a 20-year plan that starts with community input. I find it interesting that devastating fires also occurred at the outset of Vision 2045.

What nuclear facility? Were the fires designed to spread towards Amarillo? Why? Is it because the Pantex Plant is there? Pantex is America’s premier nuclear weapons assembly and disassembly facility for nuclear bombs, housed on 10,000 acres 17 miles northeast of Amarillo. It has 6,000 acres of buffer land around it. The plant was evacuated. Department of Energy (DOE) began nuclear operations there in 1950. Two contractors, BWXT Pantex and Sandia National Laboratory, operate it.

The plant has been in operation since 1975 and produced its last new bomb in 1991. Over that time, Pantex has been the site for dismantling thousands of weapons from retired military stockpiles. The fires caused the facility to briefly shut down, but normal operations have resumed. If a fire had engulfed Pantex, what would have happened? It’s a good question to ask, given that more than 3,700 nuclear warheads are stockpiled in over 50 locations in 28 states. Authorities were not greatly concerned about Pantex, saying that nuclear facilities have always been built to withstand natural disasters, including fires. The DOE says wildfires don’t create an immediate nuclear threat because the weapons themselves are usually well-protected and stored underground in highly secure facilities. You know, trust the government.

Cattle ranches: The Texas Panhandle is the world’s largest cattle-producing region. Over 85 percent of all cattle production in Texas occurs there. To date, nearly 7,000 cattle are dead. Many more will not survive or will have to be euthanized. Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller says there are cattle with hooves and udders burned off. The fires will also create a hay shortage in the coming months. So far, the cattle toll is a small part of overall cattle production. Miller says it is likely not going to affect beef costs.

However, both CNN and NPR interviewed cattle rancher Shane Pennington, who tells a different story. He says these counties are devastated and will take years to recover. He says that farmers and ranchers are losing everything: “seeing the way the flames transformed the landscape was surreal.”

Is this by design? Was this a direct hit on Texas and its’ $15.5 billion cattle industry, the state’s most profitable agricultural business by far? Is the Deep State trying to wreak havoc on Texas farmers, just as they’ve done to farmers across the world? Are they trying to control the food supply? Are they powers that be upset about Texas’ stand at the border crossings?

Who is responsible?

Ultimately, who is responsible for the fires? Are they an act of God? Nope. Xcel Energy has admitted some responsibility. The utility company acknowledged it had a role, citing lack of attention to infrastructure. Spokespeople for the Texas A&M Forest Service have stated that both the Smokehouse Creek Fire and the Windy Deuce Fire ignited due to power lines.

Again, this is sounding eerily familiar. Edison Electric was responsible for the 2017 Thomas Fire in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties, which at the time was California’s largest wildfire since 1932. Since then, seven wildfires have each consumed more acreage than the Thomas Fire. Most of these fires have been caused by electric companies, with PG&E being the latest in the news. Edison just issued a statement saying that by the end of 2024, it would pay out 90 percent of the $9.4 billion claims from 2017.

It’s interesting that these energy companies (PG&E, Edison and Xcel) all have the same top three shareholders.

PG&E (top) and Edison (bottom) shareholders.

Oops I almost forgot Hawaii! The state’s largest utility, Hawaiian Electric has been blamed for the fires there as well. And who owns that company? You guessed it.

Hawaiian Electric shareholders.

Texas Will Soon Be Forgotten

As of now, all fires have been contained at a level of 75 percent or higher. Fire risks remain. Questions remain, too, but will they be answered or swept under the rug? The people of the Texas Pandhandle will soon be forgotten, just like the people in Maui and East Palestine. We’ll be bombarded with stories about how climate change was the cause of the fires, and stories like this one will be published about how the fires created excess carbon dioxide. But the truth? We will likely never know.
