Hawaiian "Tsunami" Hoax of 2010

Much ado about nothing; alarmist US-based reports cause a global "panicdemic;" Japanese government apologizes; no such gesture of contrition, humbleness from Washington culprits

HAIKU, Maui, Mar 1 - You could have bathed a baby in a "tsunami" of that size.  Waves of only 4 to 12 inches were reported in Hawaii and Japan.  Here on the north shore of Maui, we don't even bother to come out and watch the surf unless it is 20 to 30 feet at least.  Yet the U.S.-originated alarmist warnings caused a global "panicdemic" in 53 countries that were supposedly in danger of being struck by a powerful tsunami on Saturday (Feb 27).

Why would the U.S. government and its lapdogs - the American "lamestream" media networks - want to alarm millions of its and other global citizens?  Because keeping people in a state of fear is essential to state control of the people.  It is all a part and parcel of the New World Order elite's motto "perpetual war for perpetual commerce," something we have pointed out through many exampled of the 1990s and the early years of the past decade (see New World Order Flag, Nov 1999, for example).

But for such devious methods to work, one has to first dumb down the nation so as to deprive the people of independent thought (see “Dumbing Down of America”, Aug 1997,  and Toward a Nation of Morons, Jan 2006, also published as my column in the Washington Times - Feb 5, 2006).  And loss or diminishing of cognitive abilities is a prelude to loss of freedom.  So America's only salvation from the slavery to New World Order would-be global masters is an intense exercise of Common Sense.  We should all swear allegiance to Common Sense as our only master guide.

Which is a lofty goal.  Because developing and practicing Common Sense is a 24/7 challenge.  Here's what this writer wrote about the Hawaiian "Tsunami" Hoax while trying to practice it contemporaneously.

Hawaiian "Tsunami" Hoax

HAIKU, Maui, Feb 27 - By now you know that the much ballyhooed Hawaiian "tsunami" hoax turned out to be a whimper.  Only  6-12 INCH (!) waves.  You could bathe a baby in such a “tsunami.”  No surprise there, as you can see from the enclosed note I had written to my family and friends BEFORE the "tsunami" arrived (also see the "projection" image - right).


Hello everybody.  This is just a quick word to let you know we are fine, and warn you not to fall for the media and government propaganda about the alleged danger to Hawaii from potential tsunamis unleashed by the massive earthquake in Chile. Even if the predicted 7-9 foot waves do materialize, which I frankly doubt, over here on the north shore of Maui, most people would not even bother to get their surfboards out.  For us, these are baby waves.  We start to watch the surf when it reaches 20-30 ft, as it was earlier this week (see the picture below taken 2/23). 

How do I know that? Well, Chile is 7,000 miles away.  The ocean surge even there has been only 7-9 feet.  And you expect a "tsunami" to get bigger in Hawaii?  I'd be surprised if our "tsunami" surge were even half that.  Only fools would fall for such panic-inducing "forecasts."  I never even turned on the TV this morning.  Yet we were aware of the Chilean earthquake since last night here.  I got the news about it and saw it on my seismic monitor within 10 minutes of its occurring (3:34AM Chilean time this morning). 

This tsunami scare is yet another opportunity for the media to whip up the frenzy (and thus increase ad sales), and for the governments to frighten people so as try to assert control over our lives.  Don’t fall for it.  We are fine.  Nothing has happened nor is going to happen no matter how much excitement our lamestream media try to whip up.  They are milking a dry news cow.  

I will report more on this later this evening.  Right now, I need to go down to the gulch and finish the construction work I started this morning on new trellises. 

Enjoy your weekend. 

Much love 


Indeed, everything was good and normal around here.  Here’s the latest Dow Jones' news report about it: 

Tsunami unleashed by Chilean earthquake reaches Hawaii (click on title to read the full story)

Dow Jones’ MarketWatch, 02/27/2010 05:43:18 PM EST


Initial reports said the tsunami, first spotted in Hilo Bay, hadn't produced the large wave that had been feared. Those fears had led to evacuation of 100,000 people.   President Obama, who grew up in Hawaii, had urged everyone in the tsunami's path to take precautions.

There were no initial reports of damage. Hawaii was expected to be among the hardest-hit areas. According to a Hawaiian civil-defense officer quoted by The Wall Street Journal, five surges of 6 to 12 inches in height had reached the Big Island and had been less destructive than feared.

A 100,000 people evacuated on account of 6"-12" waves - which were predictably by anyone with common sense!?  Is there any limit to our gullibility?

What I had not told you about before was that last night, around 11:30PM here, four minutes BEFORE the 8.8 Richter scale earthquake that unleashed the "tsunami" hit Chile, Elizabeth and I saw an unusual cloud pass from east to west right under the Big Dipper (Ursa Minor - Little Bear) across the northern sky.

You can see it above in an artist rendition of various constellations.  The cloud looked exactly like that little bear depicted in the Ursa Minor image.  The bear was facing east, again as in the image.  But this "animal" had a second head that looked like a puma or jaguar.  Otorongo is a sacred animal of the winds of the West in the Inca cosmology.  The second head was roughly where the Ursa Minor's tail was.  It was facing the West, the direction in which the cloud was moving.

Here's the Native Americans' interpretation of the significance of these two power animals:

Bear (Ursa)

Bear is known for its period of hibernation. Bear can help us with the ability to turn inward to access our strength and honor your nature cycles. He teaches us when it is time to act and when it is time to be still.

Cougar (Puma, Jaguar, Otorongo)

A symbol of power. Cougar teaches you to balance your own. Cougar responds to any challenge with swiftness.

If the Bear-Puma cloud was a warning, we certainly did not get it at the time.  But the powerful sign made enough of an impression on me to have made me turn on my computer to look up the exact shape of the Little Bear constellation.  That was about 10-15 minutes later.  That's how I found out on my seismic monitor about the massive earthquake that had hit Chile in the meantime.  I also showed it to Elizabeth before we went to bed.  When we awoke this morning, the Hawaiian "tsunami" frenzy was already in full swing.

Meanwhile, check out some of the "refugee" scenes we recorded in Pukalani (Maui's "upcountry"). 


We drove there to get some supplies at the local hardware store (left).  I also wanted to do some laps at the Pukalani pool (middle left).  Alas, it was closed, like most government-operated things this morning.  The parking lot of a normally spacious shopping center was packed (middle right). Refugees from lower-lying areas, driven from their homes by alarmist news reports and images like the one on the right, were camped everywhere.

And then, as if that weren't enough, the tsunami sirens went off again at 11AM, just before the expected arrival of the destructive waves.  I was in the hardware store at the time.  I recorded some of it for you, so you can see how the government spreads fear and panic among the people...

 Hawaiian "Tsunami" Hoax - by Bob Djurdjevic (Feb 27, 2010) (1:33 mins)

... and then never again do what the "authorities" tell you, unless your own personal COMMON SENSE agrees with it.  One day, such attitude may save your life.  This comes to you from a former war correspondent who has had to rely on common sense rather than government protection for survival.

In short, the Hawaiian "tsunami hoax" of Feb 27 was a case of gross overreaction and typical fear-mongering by the lamestream media and government officials.


P.S. Just went to get our mail and see that the US Post Office has given itself a day off today.  Unlike the rest of us, I am sure they will get paid for not doing their job.  Par for the course, I suppose, when it comes to disaster-minting governments.

Global "Panicdemic" Spreads to Japan

TOKYO, Japan, Feb 28 - Tokyo has just been hit by a "tsunami" of madness as the global "panicdemic" spread to Japan.  This excerpt from a Reuter's story filed from Japan's capital gives a new dimension to ludicrous news reports and government madness.  Even though there is clearly no danger to Japanese "mainland," since the "tsunami" was reduced to a four-inch wave by the time it reached outer Japanese islands, the Tokyo government and the media are still hyping up evacuations of 245,000 households, possibly over a million people!? 

4-inch wave washes island 1,212 miles south of Tokyo

Main Japan islands brace for tsunami of 10 feet or more

By Elaine Lies and Yoko Kubota

TOKYO, Feb 28 (Reuters) - A tiny tsunami hit a small island far south of Tokyo on Sunday after authorities warned that waves of more than 3 metres (10 ft) could batter Japan's Pacific coast following a massive earthquake in Chile.

Officials have ordered some 245,000 households along Japan's Pacific coast to evacuate after one of the world's most powerful earthquakes in a century battered Chile on Saturday, killing more than 300 people.

A 10 cm (4 inch) tsunami lapped the small island of Minamitori 1,950 km (1,212 miles) south of Tokyo, NHK public TV reported.

Sirens wailed in coastal towns on Japan's main islands and tens of thousands of people were urged to evacuate to higher ground after the Japan Meteorological agency issued the tsunami warning for a wide swathe of Japan's Pacific coast.

It was the first warning for a major tsunami in 17 years and only the fourth since 1952, the Japan Meteorological Agency said.

Evacuate over a million people on account of a four-inch ripple?  Now there you have a tsunami of madness.  We would not even know how to measure waves that small in Hawaii.

U.S. Government Cancels Tsunami Warning for All Countries

WASHINGTON, February 28, 2010 (AFP) - The US government on Sunday morning canceled a tsunami warning for all Pacific nations that had been issued in the wake of a 8.8-magnitude earthquake in Chile.

"The Pacific-wide tsunami warning issued by the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center is now canceled for all countries," it said in a statement.

The Japanese government at least had the decency to apologize to its people for alarmist news warnings and evacuations (see Japan sorry for overzealous tsunami alert, Mar 1).  No such luck here, of course, especially since OUR government and media reports caused all others to panic and overreact, evacuating 100,000 people here in Hawaii.

Well, score one goal for the Team Common Sense.  I wrote to some of you BEFOREHAND to tell you not to worry (see my stories Hawaiian "Tsunami" Hoax, Feb 27, including Global "Panicdemic" Spreads to Japan, Feb 28).

For those of you who may be new to this Truth in Media web site, at the peak of this writer's activity as war correspondence and commentator, it was ranked as No. 33 in the world out of some 40 million web sites in existence at the time.  At the time, we have written many articles on the subject global geopolitics, financial terrorism of the NWO elite, and the widening gap between the rich and the poor in America and elsewhere in the world. Many of the stories were carried as columns by national and global media, such as the Washington Times, the Chronicles magazine, and other major news organizations in the U.S., Australia and other English-speaking countries.  Some of the stories were based on my firsthand experiences as a war correspondent in Bosnia, Serbia and during the Kosovo war in 1999.
