Exactly Gaz! - thank you for sounding the voice of reason.

But seriously - shouldn't we be worried that the NWO will use there "Weather Machine" somewhere else when we least expect it?

Foxnews (tv) is now reporting that Martial Law has not been declared in New Orleans!


Man, I hope the Daily Show isn't another repeat tonight.

This is FoxNews Solid GOLD.

Martial Law was declared briefly today by FoxNews given the largest natural disaster to ever hit America. Calmer heads eventually prevailed however, when the National Guard could not be reached for comment,[picture of reservist in the Iraqi desert wearing a life preserver] and FoxNews realized it wasn't actually allowed to declare Martial Law... at least ahead of schedule [2008 JEB WINS! graphic]

I know it was just a joke but '2008 JEB WINS!', argh...somethings not right about that. Got chills down my spine. Let's pray on everything holy and good this is not the case.

I read your message and...I dont know, the next 3 years just flashed into my head and...well, let's just hope this is not the case.

I was just watching the news and I can't believe how horrible the conditions are right now... the entire Gulf Coast is Flooded! Their is no way out for thousands of people, no gass, no food, no water, no plumbing. The loss of life is catastrophic, dwarfed only by the cost that it will take to rebuild.

And from what i saw on the News the People were LOOTING not only from Food Stores but also from electronics and other high end merchandise.

This whole area is under Martial Law right now... Would the Government Shoot to Kill these Looters???

This could break wide open at any moment.

Well this is a good foreshadowing of possible use of weather control by the NWO. However, short of Katrina nailing most of the US, we have little to worry about.

Many people forget that the National Guard does more than just repel invasion and act as riot police, they're practically the footsoldiers of FEMA. The National Guard is usually involved with helping the citizens in various ways. Distributing food, medicine, helping to rebuild, evacuating, etc.

I strongly doubt that there is much to be paranoid about this time, simply because it's only New Orleans.

What we should be paranoid about is how something like this could be used in the future on a larger scale.

I hope this clarifieds whether or not martial law has been declared:

news.yahoo.com...

"Local television reported that as conditions worsened, martial law was imposed in two areas, Jefferson Parish and Plaquemines Parish, a day after murderous Hurricane Katrina slammed into the city."

Shoot the Looters

With looting now getting started by the scum bags that stayed behind just for that reason in the hurrican torn south, we need to start addressing it. I feel that anyone that is caught with things that are not for sustinance such as food and water should be shot on sight no questions asked. The people in the south have lost nearly everything and they do not need these dirtballs taking what they have left.

New Orleans to be evacuated.....

Fox News just reported that Louisiana Governor has ordered that New Orleans needs to be evacuated immediately ....


I guess they have not figured out how to stop the incoming water, a main water line was broken in addition leaving the city with no drinkable water.

will post an internet source ASAP....

www.brandonsun.com...

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - With water rising in the streets of New Orleans and conditions rapidly deteriorating, Gov. Kathleen Blanco said Tuesday that the tens of thousands of people now huddled in the Superdome and other rescue centres would have to be evacuated.

"The situation is untenable," Blanco said at a news conference. "It's just heartbreaking."

CNN is now carrying the latest updated videos that were hand carried to one of their stations after a complete fly over of most of the areas affected.

In Gulf Port a bridge deck on hwy 90 was ripped completely off leaving only pillars showing. Not sure if that is a freeway number or state could be possible US hwy not sure. but it looked like one big mess.

Martial law? What really is the point? Looting? Someone going to row up in the boat, hop into waste deep water, drag something wet and ruined into the boat, and then row away?

And to force people to evacuate... who is going to stay? Stay for what? Everything is ruined.

Somebody wrote:

"I have this funny, lingering feeling that there is a media blackout being imposed on New Orleans and the affected areas. We have seen relatively little trickle out of the areas from all these correspondents and almost nothing from New Orleans".

Yes, a media blackout imposed by Katrina.

The Times-Picyaune website has been a great source of information. The newspaper is currently being published ONLY online, in PDF format. (There is NO print edition.) In addition, they have been posting updated stories, have a blog for/by employees, and have started message boards for each area of the city for people to get information and try to locate people. They had to finally abandon their offices - as have all of the TV stations. The local media have all put out pleas for their staff to contact them and let them know they are OK.

Given these circumstances, it should be understandable why there is a seeming news blackout. It's simply an inability to collect and disseminate the news due to the extreme conditions. Buildings originally thought to be safe, and where people rode it out, are now thought not to be.

Actually, I am amazed at how well news IS getting out. We can thank the Internet for that. If this had happened 10 years ago, I think we'd be getting MUCH less news still.

As to martial law - isn't this a requirement in order to use regular military troops (other than National Guard) to help out? Don't we have rather severe restrictions on the use of military within the country?

I wouldn't be too sure. Jewelry and other valuables aren't necessarily ruined by water.

Also, the use of martial law likely has more to do with assistance and maintaining order than just protecting property from looters. Deployment of the national guard is not only a good idea here but a necessity.
If I were in the shoes of those poor people, I would gladly welcome any helping hand, be it from the military or otherwise.

Peace and prayers to those involved.

Indy, LOTS of people stayed. It's hard to understand unless youve actually experienced it, but people just dont want to leave their homes, their belongings, their whole lives behind them not knowing whether it will still be there when they return. and then theres just the stubborn people who still didnt take this seriously even when they made it a mandatory evacuation. mostly the latter.

Quebec declared Martial Law when the Ice Storm hit. Ottawa did so when we had a Terrorist problem. Martial Law is a tool nothing more or less. It can be abused, but in this day and age of connectivity it would be difficult to achieve. When they start calling Martial Law because it rained a bit then you should be worried, a City gets Decimated and Martial Law gets called no need to worry about that, I would worry more about the Soldiers Safety disease could start running rampant.

Also people need to learn one thing.

No such thing as precision weather control.

The amounts of energy required to even start a hurricane is astronomical, only a Kardashev Type 1 civilization could accomplish such a feat and we are far from that at this moment in time. HAARP is not up to the task.

sardion, i have never heard such an insensitive comment. i cant believe there could be a member of this site so ignorantas to say that.

Martial Law was declared because the waters that have destroyed my home and the homes of my family and friends are contaminated with toxic wastes, sewage, and coffins from the cemetaries.

next time you decide to say something so stupid and ignorant, think twice about how your comment might affect other people.

I think you took it wrong Kitsu:

"When they start calling Martial Law because it rained a bit then you should be worried, a City gets Decimated and Martial Law gets called no need to worry about that"

NO was decimated. Seems he was saying don't worry until they start declaring martial law for no reason.

Do you have a problem with the National Guard helping you out? I was only saying that if the government called Martial Law for it raining a bit then get worried, if a city gets decimated and mass looting occurs then don't worry about the Martial Law Be Thankfull!! Maybe it should have been called pre-emptively


next time you decide to say something so stupid and ignorant, think twice about how our comment might affect other people.


Maybe you should read more carefully before making snap judgements...
