Let's be clear, the response.. or non-response to New Orleans drowning in the aftermath of Hurrican Katrina was not due to FEMA and the administration not knowing what was going on. That is absurd on the face of it. Of course they knew!

There is something much more ominous going on. Like the purposeful scattering of New Orleans' poorest citizens to the ends of this nation. (Can you say ethnic cleansing..? ) How many of those people are going to be able to just pick up and move back home once the city's been scoured? Not too many. I'm pretty sure the power brokers want it that way, too, and are licking their chops at how "clean" that city'll be once they've re-built it.

There are several things about this whole thing that don't add up... Here's an article that points some of those things out..



New Orleans: Dress rehearsal for lockdown of America
By Carolyn Baker
Online Journal Contributing Writer

September 13, 2005—Good morning, Baghdad! Good morning, Kabul! The war has come home to America, right here, right now and so have myriad questions so disturbing that most Americans, even if they know what the questions are, are terrified to ask:

Why is Blackwater USA, the principal mercenary force outsourced by the Pentagon to fight in Iraq, now patrolling the streets of New Orleans?

Why the disgraceful, ghastly slowness of response by the federal government to the Katrina disaster?

Why FEMA's destruction of communication lines and implacable refusal to allow food, water, and medicine into the city? (www.waynemadsenreport.com... September 6)

Why have reconstruction and clean-up contracts conveniently fallen, with perfect timing, to Halliburton and Bechtel, the two U.S. corporations most infamous for their expertise in rebuilding Iraq and worldwide whatever the U.S. military has blown up?

According to cloakanddagger.de, there's a bunch of oil in the NOLA area. Get 'em off the oil patch.

But I too am wondering the real reason for scattering the people to the winds....

How would a disaster of this magnitude be replicated in other U.S. cities? Or are you suggesting that Los Angeles, New York, and Chicago are going to be 'cleansed' in some other way?

This isn't preparation for anything... it's a lack of preparation, and while the Federal government is displaying vast incompetence in dealing with it, this isn't part of some master plan to ethnically cleanse the U.S. That's just ridiculous.

Its clearly been a result of massive incompetence and political patronage. The president filled the Agency with hacks who had donated money or garnered support for his administration, not devious sinister shadow-men who've plotted a non-response. The Agency was filled with incompetent idiots, not conspirators.


are licking their chops at how "clean" that city'll be once they've re-built it.

This makes absolutely no sense. Why would any of these supposed conspirators want New Orleans to be white? It won't be from this anyway, if anything, every other city just got a little blacker.

Why is Blackwater USA, the principal mercenary force outsourced by the Pentagon to fight in Iraq, now patrolling the streets of New Orleans?

Please explain why this is a problem.

Why the disgraceful, ghastly slowness of response by the federal government to the Katrina disaster?

It was run by people who were completely and horrible incapable and unqualified for their positions, postitions that were awarded to them by a presidential patron. Thats the horror story here, not yet another 'fema is going to take over the world' hysteria. FEMA is incompetent, the federal government is incompetent, thats the scandal, the rest is a red herring and a distraction.

Why have reconstruction and clean-up contracts conveniently fallen, with perfect timing, to Halliburton and Bechtel

What does that have to do with a dress rehersal for the NWO? Hallibruton has a former executive in the executive branch and has obviously been using that influence to get big contracts. Of course, halliburton is already a candidate to get these contracts, but, well, again, being a client can be a good thing.

Please present the seismological and stratiagraphical studies that support this contention.

There was an article in the Wall Street Journal several days ago alluding to the fact that New Orleans' movers and shakers and big business interests are coming together to plan the rebuilding of the city. They were very clear on one point: they do not want the city re-inhabited by those dregs. Hence, the widespread scattering of evacuees.

It makes perfect sense. To the elites' anyway.

If you watched how the government went about this, one thing is clear: they simply held help at bay long enuff to basically starve the population into mass movement. Allowing the looting and lawlessness only enabled the feds to move the military in to secure the city w/little or no opposition. Note: the folks in surrounding parishes aren't about to turn their areas over to the feds. I was listening to local officials yesterday assuring their people that that would NOT be happening there.

This was a great trial run for the powers that be. If you're interested in further study, check out REX 84. It's worth the time.



Attacks on democratic rights, breaching legal barriers: FEMA and Katrina: REX-84 Revisited
The "Black Curtain" around FEMA's Operations

If you believe the corporate media, FEMA is simply a bungling and inept emergency management agency and its director, Michael Brown, according to the Washington Post, is simply an "accidental director" and "the failed head of an Arabian horse sporting group who was plucked from obscurity to become President Bush's point man for the worst natural disaster in U.S. history" and, as the Boston Globe notes, "got the job through an old college friend who at the time was heading up FEMA.... Brown -- formerly an estates and family lawyer -- this week has made several shocking public admissions, including interviews where he suggested FEMA was unaware of the misery and desperation of refugees stranded at the New Orleans convention center." In short, the corporate media would have us believe Brown is a clueless lawyer and former horse trader and FEMA an unresponsive federal bureaucratic leviathan wrapped up in red tape. But this does not explain the following:

Rex 84
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Rex 84, short for Readiness Exercise 1984, was a plan by the United States federal government to accommodate the detention of large numbers of American citizens during times of emergency.

Through Rex-84 an undisclosed number of concentration camps were set in operation throughout the United States, for internment of dissidents and others potentially harmful to the state.

Existence of the Rex 84 plan was first revealed during the Iran-Contra Hearings in 1987, and subsequently reported by the Miami Herald on July 5, 1987.

You might want to re-re-read that Rex 84 information and then try crossreferencing it with some objective sourcings. You are coming at this in a conspiratorial sense and then backing it only with conspiratorial angled sourcings. As such, how valid and credible would your end result be? Obviously your end solution/equation/result is tainted from the get-go because your sourcings are not objective, but slanted, only to suit/fit your premise.

Did you happen to note this from your Rex 84 sourcing?


...for internment of dissidents and others potentially harmful to the state.

Are you trying to say or indicating that those who have been displaced by Katrina are dissidents and others potentially harmful to the state"?

Furthermore, how about this?


...an undisclosed number of concentration camps...

Are the locations of the current displaced evacuees of New Orleans and other such Gulf-state areas in such "undisclosed concentration camps"? Do your sources reveal those "undisclosed concentration camps", as well? If not, how come? They seem to come up with everything else, this should be no different, correct?

Btw, when those evacuees return to New Orleans and those other evacuated Gulf-state areas, what will your sources and you come up with in relation to this alleged New Orleans: Dress rehearsal for lockdown of America?

Hypothetically, almost a shame that a hurricane has not hit the East Coast this year, cause then it would give me a chance to ask you which "undisclosed detention center" were you displaced to when the city or town you live in declared a mandatory evacuation.....

Maybe those people shouldn't go back to living 9 feet below sea level.

One of the greatest crimes, IMHO, is allowing that land to be built upon at all. It seems to me greedy slum-lords, don't know what else to call them, built marginal housing in an area where no one but the poor would live.
Anyone who can afford better would live elsewhere.

That area of NOLA was a disaster that was waiting to happen. How many more housing units were built in the last 40 years? This was no area that will ever be gentrified, like in other cities.

That land should be reclaimed as wetlanads, or something. No expert in this type of thing, but people should not live there.

my 2.5 cents.

It's not nearly that easy. First of all, the wetlands should never have been destroyed. They were a barrier. They should be rebuilt. Second, the funding to shore up the levees could have been given to LA. but Bush had a war in Iraq he needed to fund. Over the last four years he/they have cut funding significantly. Had those funds been given as previously planned, the disaster most probably would have been averted. Third, this port will not be shut down. It is far too important to the American economy. In order to keep it functioning, the city has to be where it is.

Here's a little piece from Stratfor on this:



New Orleans: A Geopolitical Prize

By George Friedman

Katrina has taken out the port -- not by destroying the facilities, but by rendering the area uninhabited and potentially uninhabitable. That means that even if the Mississippi remains navigable, the absence of a port near the mouth of the river makes the Mississippi enormously less useful than it was. For these reasons, the United States has lost not only its biggest port complex, but also the utility of its river transport system -- the foundation of the entire American transport system. There are some substitutes, but none with sufficient capacity to solve the problem.

It follows from this that the port will have to be revived and, one would assume, the city as well. The ports around New Orleans are located as far north as they can be and still be accessed by ocean-going vessels. The need for ships to be able to pass each other in the waterways, which narrow to the north, adds to the problem. Besides, the Highway 190 bridge in Baton Rouge blocks the river going north. New Orleans is where it is for a reason: The United States needs a city right there.
