New World Orleans: Microcosm for the "New America"
Special report on the elite police state takeover
Steve Watson | September 5 2005
Imagine an America where everyone is displaced. It's survival of
the fittest as all law and order has broken down. Martial law
has been declared with 24 hr curfews, Posse Comitatus has been
overturned and there are troops on the streets shooting anyone who
disobeys their orders. Thousands and thousands of people are
starving but the authorities will not allow aid in any significant
amounts. Large crowds are quelled with the use of sonic lasers,
whilst overhead drone aircraft monitor the area, checking for
any anomalous activity.
Any form of Local and State government has been abandoned and
officials have been forcibly removed against their wills. The
elite infiltrators of the Federal Government watch on from afar, in
control of everything, answering to no one and getting fat off
the profits of their own corrupt inactivity which brought about
the situation in the first instance. They like it that way, it
suits them down to the ground, why should they do anything to
improve the situation?
This is the nightmare situation of a New World Order takeover in
America. It is what we have been warning the world about for
years. It is no longer some distant possibility on the horizon that
our children may have to endure and fight against, it is here,
it is now. New Orleans is a testing ground for this exact
scenario, all this is going on there now. We are witnessing in New
Orleans, the construction of a microcosm for a "New America" and a
New World Order.
If it keeps on rainin', levee's goin' to break
The overriding issue that is simply being ignored by the
mainstream media is that it was the federal government itself that
lowered the guard in cutting off key funding to protect Louisiana
from natural disasters.
The New Orleans district of the US Army Corps of Engineers bore
the brunt of a record $71.2 million reduction in federal funding
for fiscal year 2006.
The Army Corps of Engineers sought $105 million for hurricane
and flood programs in New Orleans, while the White House slashed
the request to about $40 million. Congress finally approved $42.2
million, less than half of the agency's request
The Bush administration has been cutting funding for federal
disaster relief funds since 2001 while doubling funding in other
areas to pump up the biggest growth in government for decades,
easily outstripping that of Bill Clinton.
A report from the Best of New Orleans news website outlines the
"...Among emergency specialists, 'mitigation' -- the measures
taken in advance to minimize the damage caused by natural
disasters -- is a crucial part of the strategy to save lives and cut
recovery costs. But since 2001, key federal disaster mitigation
programs, developed over many years, have been slashed and tossed
aside. FEMA's Project Impact, a model mitigation program created
by the Clinton administration, has been canceled outright.
Federal funding of post-disaster mitigation efforts designed to
protect people and property from the next disaster has been cut in
half. Communities across the country must now compete for
pre-disaster mitigation dollars."
The Bush administration's move to merge FEMA with Homeland
Security meant that the two had to compete for funding.
Straightforward projects that would have massively reduced the
are now seeing, such as raising houses, were cast aside in favor
of anti-terrorism measures.
In early 2001, FEMA issued a report stating that a hurricane
striking New Orleans was one of the three most likely disasters in
U.S., including a terrorist attack on New York City!. "The New
Orleans hurricane scenario," The Houston Chronicle wrote in
December 2001, "may be the deadliest of all." But by 2003 the federal
funding for the flood control project essentially dried up as it
was drained into the Iraq war.
Walter Maestri, emergency management chief for Jefferson Parish,
Louisiana was quoted on June 8, 2004 in the New Orleans
Times-Picayune, as saying "It appears that the money has been moved
the president's budget to handle homeland security and the war in
Iraq, and I suppose that's the price we pay. Nobody locally is
happy that the levees can't be finished, and we are doing
everything we can to make the case that this is a security issue for
Ultimately, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is directed, along
with 15 other agencies, by the Federal Emergency Management
Agency. "It is FEMA who is really calling the shots and setting
priorities here," Lt. Gen. Carl A. Strock, commander of the corps
Much of the Netherlands lies below sea level and after the 1953
flood which killed 1,800 people, the Dutch launched a major
flood prevention program called the Delta Plan. Engineers fortified
dykes and bolstered other water defenses against a future
disaster and there hasn't been one since. Had a similar project been
in place for New Orleans and had Bush not cut the funding, the
misery and turmoil being visited on that area would have been
Not only is the Bush Administration directly responsible for the
ferocity of this disaster, the blame also lies with Clinton. 10
years ago, the Clinton administration cut 98 flood control
projects, including one in New Orleans, saying such efforts should be
local projects, not national.
A $120 million hurricane project, approved and financed annually
from 1965 was killed by the Clinton administration after being
approved by the Army Corps of Engineers. It was designed to
protect more than 140,000 West Bank residents east of the Harvey
The New York Times has reported that there were vivid reasons to
push for the greatest level of protection. One was Hurricane
Betsy, a midgrade storm that swamped much of New Orleans in 1965.
In 1969, Hurricane Camille, the second-most-powerful Atlantic
storm recorded, passed within 60 miles and demolished the
Bob Sheets, a meteorologist who directed the National Hurricane
Center until retiring in 1995, has said that he and other
federal forecasters gave hundreds of talks about storm risks, and New
Orleans was always the case study for catastrophe since the
1970s. He has said of the city officials: "Essentially they did
Despite all this, In an interview on Thursday the 1st September,
on "Good Morning America," President Bush said, "I don't think
anyone anticipated the breach of the levees."
Furthermore, the mainstream media, despite several reports
emerging to the contrary, republished Bush's comments. The New York
Times declared that "The response will be dissected for years.
But on Thursday, disaster experts and frustrated officials said a
crucial shortcoming may have been the failure to predict that
the levees keeping Lake Pontchartrain out of the city would be
breached, not just overflow."
This April 2005 article in Popular Science proves that Bush's
comments were grossly inaccurate. "At 20 feet below sea level, new
Orleans is a prime target. An ambitious new levee system would
decrease the risk."
As World Net Daily reported, a year ago, New Orleans reviewed
its hurricane disaster plans after Hurricane Ivan gave the city a
major scare forcing the evacuation of nearly 1 million people
from the area. Governor Kathleen Blanco and Mayor Ray Nagin both
acknowledged after the Ivan near miss they needed a better
Even the AP noted at the time, "New Orleans dodged the knockout
punch many feared from the hurricane, but the storm exposed what
some say are significant flaws in the Big Easy's civil disaster
plans." The big flaws were that there simply were no civil
disaster plans and FEMA had no intention of developing any.
So it is clear that Officials at the Army Corps of Engineers and
emergency managers and hurricane experts knew for years, that
the levees surrounding the New Orleans area were built to
withstand only a relatively weak Category 3 hurricane. Hurricane
Katrina, a Category 4 mega-storm, thus had devastating consequences.
Still funding was slashed and the disaster was allowed to happen.
When The Levee Breaks I'll have no place to stay
In the aftermath of the disaster it has become obvious that the
Government has no interest in alleviating the suffering and
helping to restore civility in the region.
In particular FEMA, which has endlessly drilled for such
situations, has been a key hindrance. After the authorities in Baton
Rouge had prepared a field hospital for victims of the storm, FEMA
sent its first batch of supplies, all of which were designed for
use against chemical attack, including drugs such as Cipro,
which is designed for use against anthrax. The London Guardian
reported, "We called them up and asked them: 'Why did you send that,
and they said that's what it says in the book'," said a Baton
Yet don't think for one second that FEMA is simply incompetent.
FEMA is criminally negligent. FEMA has done nothing to aid the
situation, in fact there have been reports that FEMA has cut
emergency communication lines and has been turning back fuel and
water supplies being sent by outside agencies such as Wal Mart.
This is because the Federal Government wants complete control over
Even American Red Cross officials have said that FEMA
authorities would not allow them to deliver aid. "The Homeland
Department has requested and continues to request that the
American Red Cross not come back into New Orleans," said Renita
spokeswoman for the Red Cross.
Even Jack Cafferty, the CNN anchor known for his
straight-talking, has declared: "I remember the riots in Watts. I
earthquake in San Francisco. I remember a lot of things. I have
never seen anything as badly handled as this situation in New
Orleans. Where the hell is the water for these people? Why can't
sandwiches be dropped to those people in that Superdome down
there? It's a disgrace. And don't think the world isn't watching."
Former FEMA officials have admitted that Government disaster
officials had an action plan if a major hurricane hit New Orleans.
They simply didn't execute it when Hurricane Katrina struck.
Ronald Castleman, the former regional director for the Federal
Emergency Management Agency and John Copenhaver, a former FEMA
regional director during the Clinton administration who led the
response to Hurricane Floyd in 1999, said they were bewildered by the
slow FEMA response.
We even have blogs from former New Orleans residents who have
managed to get to safety. One exclaiming that:
"There are supplies sitting in Baton Rouge for the folks in New
Orleans, but the National Guard has the city surrounded and is
not letting anyone in or out. They are turning away people with
s[QUOTE]upplies, claiming it is too dangerous...Our goverment is
KILLING the people of New Orleans. This is the message I am now
sending to all major media sources, national and worldwide, as
well as posting to email lists, blogs, etc. The story is getting
out that the people there are not getting supplies, but the
truth of WHY is not. "
The LA Times interviewed a survivor who said, "The only thing
the authorities have given us is a bunch of false hope,". she had
survived Tuesday through Friday on scavenged scraps of food
inside the cavernous hall. "They just left us here to die."
The Federal response was further criticised by New Orleans
deputy police commander W.S. Riley who reported to AFP that Guardsmen
'played cards' as the chaos unfolded and many were dying. He
stated that for three days there was no assistance. "The guard
arrived 48 hours after the hurricane with 40 trucks. They drove
their trucks in and went to sleep."
There have also been suggestions that part of the levee around
N.O. was dynamited after the first section broke in an attempt to
prevent Uptown (the rich part of town) from being flooded.
Apparently they used too much dynamite, thus flooding part of the
Reports and comments from officials today have indicated that
President Bush's visit is nothing more than a staged photo op.
ZDF News reported that the president's visit was a completely
staged event. Their crew witnessed how the open air food
distribution point Bush visited in front of the cameras was torn down
immediately after the president and the herd of 'news people' had
left and that others which were allegedly being set up were
abandoned at the same time. The people in the area were once again
left to fend for themselves, said ZDF. [War And Piece]
"2 minutes ago the President drove past in his convoy. But what
has happened in Biloxi all day long is truly unbelievable.
Suddenly recovery units appeared, suddenly bulldozers were there,
those hadn't been seen here all the days before, and this in an
area, in which it really wouldn't be necessary to do a big clean
up, because far and wide nobody lives here anymore, the people are
more inland in the city...The extent of the natural disaster
shocked me, but the extent of the staging is shocking me at least
the same way. With that back to Hamburg." [Daily Kos]
White House officials do not deny that they craft elaborate
events to showcase Bush, but they maintain that these events are
designed to accurately dramatize his policies and to convey
qualities about him that are real.
The Times-Picayune of New Orleans has called for the firing of
FEMA director Michael Brown and has heavily criticized the
government for its awful response.
Jefferson Parish President Aaron Broussard has charged that
Federal bureaucrats have 'Murdered' the Flood Victims in New
Orleans. Yet Broussard also stated that "FEMA needs more
funding. It needs more presidential support . . . FEMA needs to
be empowered to do the things it was created to do."
FEMA is now simply a federalized front group for the corrupt
money hoarding Department of Homeland Security, the Orwellian
titled agency that has nothing to do with security and everything to
do with limiting the freedoms of people all over the country.
Local officials no longer have any authority and have been
forcibly evacuated, even despite the fact that they wished to stay
oversee the recovery efforts.
Mayor Nagin has also said that the National Guard's Blackhawk
helicopter carrying the sandbags to plug the hole in the levee on
17th St. Canal was intentionally diverted away. Nagin was quoted
as demanding to federal officials "Get Off Your Asses And Do
Something". Nagin is clearly paranoid about the whole situation, is
running around playing the part of the good cop to FEMA's bad
cop. This sets the table for FEMA to sweep in and heroically save
the day at a later date. Nagin has also warned "If the CIA slips
me something and next week you don't see me, you'll all know
Cryin' won't help you, prayin' won't do you no good
Martial law was declared in New Orleans midday Tuesday 30th
August. Posse Comitatus has been overturned and the National Guard
has authorization to shoot and kill anyone they deem to be
"hoodlums". Governor Kathleen Blanco has declared that "These troops
are fresh back from Iraq, well trained, experienced, battle
tested and under my orders to restore order in the streets,".
This is a microcosm of the New America. The LA Times reported
that "their mission simply, is to turn New Orleans into a police
State - to "regain the city" as 1st Sgt. John Jewell has said.
Police have been ordered to stop saving lives and start saving
property by shooting anyone who attempt to get food and water. The
police are looting themselves to stay alive whilst the ordinary
people are starving. This is the new police state America.
Some of the most sophisticated military equipment used in the
Iraq war to quell the insurgency is now being used in New Orleans.
We have continually highlighted how such equipment was developed
specifically for domestic use and now this has come to pass.
Five Silver Fox "unmanned aerial vehicles," or UAVs, equipped with
thermal imaging technology to detect the body heat of storm
survivors, have been deployed in New Orleans.
Also being deployed are acoustic devices for crowd control and
disaster communications, sonic Laser equipment that is currently
in use in Iraq. The device uses magnets approximately 6 inches
tall and 9.25 inches wide to convert electrical pulses into sound
waves, and is capable of aiming sound precisely for thousands of
feet. This allows for the ability to blast out orders that can
be heard for miles and allows for crowds to be fired upon and
dispersed by soundwaves.
Those who fall in line with the curfews and the orders are still
treated like criminals in this New America. Footage has shown
that men women and even children are being separated and
thoroughly frisked and searched before being rescued. It seems that
survival comes second to being a civilian subject.
The ground troops have begun "combat operations" "to take this
city back" in the aftermath
from those they have termed "insurgents". These are terms also
being used in Iraq, but now they fit perfectly here to describe
anyone who disobeys or does not fall in line in the New America.
The troops have declared their shock at having to shoot at US
citizens and being shot back at, yet the majority of these people
are deliberately being deprived of food and water by the federal
authorities, they are desperate and have been forced into this
Those who were grabbed in the immediate aftermath were shipped
into the Superdome and simply left there without any aid. This
represents nothing more than a concentration camp as starving and
thirsty refugees were not allowed to leave, trapped until the
authorities deemed it appropriate to move them.
The media covering the event have been appalled by this activity
and the reality of the New America it seems is sinking in in
some instances. Fox reporter Geraldo Rivera was filled with tears
in his eyes and his voice fluttered with sorrow as he made an
on-air plea to authorities to allow the estimated 30,000 storm
victims at the center to be allowed to move to a safer, cleaner
area. "Let them walk out of here, let them walk the hell out of
Checkpoints have been set up throughout the area to make sure no
one leaves and no one gets in without the say so of the federal
authorities. It is clear that an emergency response should not
be conducted this way. It is also clear that this is no ordinary
emergency response. This is a blueprint, a litmus test for the
New America, the police state, the New World Order.
When the levee breaks, mama, you got to move
Whilst the disaster evolves it has already been decided who will
restore order and who will reap the profits of the lucrative
cleanup contracts. Dick Cheney affiliated Halliburton have again
been rewarded that task as they have so many times. After 9/11, in
Afghanistan and in Iraq Halliburton and the elite government
infiltrators reap the rewards again and again. Last week Alex Jones
joked on his how that Halliburton may get the contract to clean
up - the sad reality is that even the things we joke about are
now coming to pass every time.
The agenda is clear, they allow the disaster to happen, or they
manufacture the disaster in the case of 9/11, and then they reap
the financial rewards first and the control mechanism rewards
that categorize their New America a little later.
It has also emerged that FEMA Outsourced the disaster plans to
political cronies and major donors. They outsourced the hurricane
recovery planning to the Baton Rouge-based consulting firm
Innovative Emergency Management (IEM), Inc. IEM's team partners for
the more than $500,000 contract are Dewberry of Arlington, VA,
URS Corporation of San Francisco, and James Lee Witt Associates.
Witt was FEMA Director under Bill Clinton. IEM's president is
Madhu Beriwal. The company was founded in 1985. Dewberry and URS
are engineering firms. IEM is also a Defense Department contractor
and has contracts with the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine
Command (TRADOC) along with team members Booz Allen Hamilton and
These people all have their hands in the honey pot, they benefit
from such tragic events, wars and disasters every time
Going down... going down now... going down....
We have seen recently the precedent being set for the
eventuality we now see unfolding. The constant ratcheting up of fear
control through the exploitation of terror attacks and terror
alerts. The technology that we have monitored through its
development stages is now being put into place.
Everything we have covered over the last few years is becoming
an actuality in New Orleans at this time. We can only report it
further and get the important information out in place of
controlled mainstream media that refuse to or are prevented from
reporting the real issues.
This is a major event in the agenda for a New America and a New
World Order and it may be a make or break one.
This New America is being controlled by corrupt elite criminals
who seek to achieve the degradation and enslavement of humanity
through war, "revolution," sickness, starvation, depression, and
now "natural" disaster. A disaster has been turned into a drill
for martial law. This is not an accident. It is part of a
relentless process of demoralization designed to make the people
accept tyranny and excessive control over their lives.
