Hawaii Governor David Ige on Monday activated the state’s National Guard to assist in the response to the Mauna Loa volcano’s eruption on the Big Island as the lava pours towards a critical highway, or so says the official cover story according to a CNN report on the activation.
Sure, the state government says the lava flow threatens a crucial east-west highway on the southern coast of the island. They say the troops are there to “assist Hawaii County with traffic control and other roles in the Mauna Loa eruption.” They say the lava is hazardous. Okay. But why? Is this anything other than an all-too convenient pretext for troops loyal to a Democrat governor patrolling the streets? The word “control” is right there in the government’s official statement.
It’s about control. First, government scientists say the volcano is erupting – allowing for no alternative voices or second opinions on it. They diagnose the “problem” unilaterally. Next, they impose their own “cure,” unsurprisingly writing a prescription for more power for themselves, damn the crippling side effects being experienced by regular Hawaiians. Unelected “experts” in geology wielding power they did nothing to earn from voters is more destructive than any havoc a volcano could cause. Ask yourself if it’s really the lava that’s melting, and not individual freedoms.
