Evidence of Explosives Found at Levee Break
Hal Turner /

NEW ORLEANS (September 9, 2005) — Divers inspecting the ruptured levee walls surrounding New Orleans found something that piqued their interest: Burn marks on underwater debris chunks from the broken levee wall!

One diver, a member of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, saw the burn marks and knew immediately what caused them. He secreted a small chunk of the cement inside his diving suit and later arranged for it to be sent to trusted military friends at a The US Army Forensic Laboratory at Fort Gillem, Georgia for testing.

According to well placed sources, a military forensic specialist determined the burn marks on the cement chunks did, in fact, come from high-explosives. The source, speaking on condition of anonymity said “We found traces of boron-enhanced fluoronitramino explosives as well as PBXN-111. This would indicate at least two separate types of explosive devices.”

The levee ruptures in New Orleans did not take place during Hurricane Katrina, but rather a day after the hurricane struck. Several residents of New Orleans and many Emergency Workers reported hearing what sounded like large, muffled explosions from the area of the levee, but those were initially discounted as gas explosions from homes with leaking gas lines.

If these allegations prove true, the ruptured levee which flooded New Orleans was a deliberate act of mass destruction perpetrated by someone with access to military-grade UNDERWATER high explosives.

Hal Turner, a New York based broadcaster, is shock-jock with racist leanings. He is virulently pro-property and anti-police and, as the following list of stories from his Web site indicate, he is a virulent racist. Still, the suggestion about explosive residue at the levee site deserves attention. Turner is a bozo, but he may have stumbled across something that the media needs to investigate further.

Gave them intentional overdoses of morphine until they stopped breathing!
London’s “DAILY MAIL” Newspaper said killing them was better than leaving them to die in agony or suffer the looters and criminal gangs.
I never thought I would ever see something like this in America! This police officer is a shameful disgrace to America.
No, I’m not kidding. Reported by Atlanta Journal-Constitution Newspaper!
When this hurricane thing is over, there’s an awful lot of violent payback coming to those who are doing these things. Payback when they’re not surrounded by ten other cops with guns. Payback when they’re off duty and not wearing their bullet-proof vests. I just wish I could be there to see it when it happens.

The Great New Orleans Land Grab:
The 17th Street Canal Levy Was Breeched on

Ernesto Cienfuegos / La Voz de Aztlan

LOS ANGELES, ALTA CALIFORNIA (September 7, 2005) — There were numerous incidents that occurred during and immediately after Katrina struck that point to the “unthinkable”. It now appears that a sophisticated plan was implemented that utilized the “cover of a hurricane” to first destroy and than take over the City of New Orleans?

As the world watched the events unfolding, one could not help think that something was terribly afoot concerning the rescue by FEMA of the city’s poor and predominate Black population. It seems that a well laid out plan was put into effect to grab valuable real estate from well established but poverty stricken Black families of New Orleans?

What is being implemented now is nothing less than a sophisticated scheme to purge and ethnically cleanse what Whites have termed “Black and ‘welfare bloated’ New Orleans”.

Among the most telling anomalies pointing to something terribly afoot is the gun battle, killing 5, that occurred at the breeched levy between the New Orleans Police Department and, what have now been identified as US military agents.

An Associated Press report, which has now disappeared, stated that at least five USA Defense Department personnel where shot dead by New Orleans police officers in the proximity of the breeched levy. A spokesman for the Army Corps of Engineers said later that those killed were “federal contractors” on their way to “repair” a canal.

The “contractors” were on their way to launch barges into Lake Pontchartrain, in an operation to “fix” the 17th Street Canal, according to the Army Corps of Engineers spokesman. Deputy Police Chief W.J. Riley of New Orleans later reported that his policemen had shot at eight suspicious people near the breeched levy, killing five or six.

Who were these “military agents” that were killed by the police near the 17th Street Canal breeched levy and what were they doing there? Why did the New Orleans police find it necessary to shoot and kill 5 or 6 of them? No one is saying anything and it appears that the news story has now been swept under the rug.

Were these US Department of Defense personnel a Special Forces group or Navy Seals with top secret orders to sabotaged the levy? There are verifiable reports that at least 100 New Orleans police officers have disappeared from the face of the earth and that two have committed suicide. Could these be policemen that died defending the levy against sabotage by “federal contractors”?

Another telling incident that points to a “nefarious plan” is what New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin said at the height of the crisis. He said publicly, “I fear the CIA may take me out!” Mayor Nagin, a Black, said this twice. He told a reporter for the Associated Press: “If the CIA slips me something and next week you don’t see me, you’ll all know what happened.” Later he told interviewers for CNN on a live broadcast that he feared the “CIA might take me out.” What does Mayor Ray Nagin know and why does he fear the CIA?

In an interview by WWL TV, Mayor Nagin complained vociferously that Louisiana National Guard Blackhawk helicopters were being stopped from dropping sandbags to plug the levy soon after it breeched. There is evidence that no repairs were allowed on the levy until after New Orleans was totally flooded!

Many civilian groups who were attempting to aid people trapped in their attics, on their roofs and at the Superdome are reporting that FEMA, other federal agents and the US military essentially “stopped” them from doing so. Convoys that were organized by truckers and carrying “food and water” were blocked by agents of the federal government on the highways and roads leading to New Orleans. The American Red Cross, in addition, encountered numerous incidents and has made formal complaints.

A private ham radio network that deployed throughout the hurricane ravished region reported that the airwaves were being “jammed” making it impossible to communicate emergency information. Churches, hospitals and other essential community groups reported that the first thing that the US military did, when they arrived, was to cut their telephone lines and confiscate communications devices.

We all witnessed news reports and heard statements by flood victims concerning the behavior of the US military. Many Black families complained that military vehicles did not stop to assist them but just drove by. One news report showed military personnel playing cards inside a barrack while Black citizens were dying of thirst and hunger.

Today, it is very revealing how the federal government is handling the disaster. They want every Black out of New Orleans and those who insist on staying in their homes will be removed by force. The government, through some media, is utilizing scare tactics to cleanse New Orleans of all Blacks. They want no witnesses and this will make the “land grab” a lot easier to undertake. One scare tactic is calling the flood water “a horrid toxic soup of feces a rotting flesh of corpses”. The military thugs are now getting tough with Black families that have owned their old but beloved homes for many generations.

Mr. Rufus Johnson, a family patriarch who lives in the French Quarter, said in an interview, “The army has given me an ultimatum to leave or suffer the consequences of a forced eviction. I do not understand . My entire family and I survived Katrina and now they want to throw me out of the home we have had for generations”. Mr. Johnson lives in a neighborhood where the flood has subsided and his home is not heavily damaged yet FEMA wants him out!

The fact that Vice President Dick Cheney is heavily involved in the FEMA operations from behind the scenes is very troublesome. Cheney and his cronies at Halliburton are in line for the lucrative contracts to “reconstruct a New Orleans”.

Deals are already being made with a Las Vegas business group to construct multi-million dollar casinos in the Big Easy on prime real estate that was owned by Black families. Whites throughout history have been notorious “land grabbers”. In the USA, they first confiscated land that belonged to American Indians. Most of the Indians ended up in worthless tracts of land called “reservations”.

The largest “land grab”, however, was the theft of Aztlan. This occurred soon after the Mexican-American War. In Alta California , vast “Ranchos” were stolen from the Californios through a variety of scams. A favorite ploy was to impose extremely heavy land taxes on the Mexicans and then foreclosing on the properties. The land was then given or sold at very low prices to the Forty Niners who came in large hordes to Alta California during the so called “Gold Rush” of 1849.

Army Kills New Orleans Contractors
Kurt Nimmo /

I have watched Fox, CNN, and MSNBC more or less non-stop over the last three days. Normally, I watch the corporate news and check it against my regular news sources on the internet, but the internet is not working very well here (it is working OK this evening, although it was out for most of the day) and I can’t get the cable company out here to fix the problem with my over-priced broadband connection until after the holiday.

Earlier, upon hearing a sketchy report the New Orleans police shot eight people on the Danziger Bridge, across a canal connecting Lake Pontchartrain to the Mississippi River, I thought something was amiss with the story, even though Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco basically told police and National Guardsmen to kill “looters,” in other words people who have violated the sanctity of private and corporate property in order to stay alive. Most of these people were “stealing” food and water. An anonymous post on the Infoshop News page sums up thus:

…the government needed to reinforce the supremacy of private property, and it did so with bullets. The government paid no attention to the people of New Orleans when all they were doing was dying, because the government could care less about a few thousand lower class black people. Once they started taking matters into their own hands and “looting” from private property, however, they became a major problem.

Never mind that the vast majority of the “looters” were simply taking food and water to try and keep themselves alive. Never mind that most of the material that was looted had already been written off as lost by insurance companies, or would have spoiled in a few days time because of the power outage. These people presented a major threat to the status quo, because they infringed on the sacredness of private property.

What kind of message would the government send to the rest of the country if it allowed the people of New Orleans to steal food to feed the hungry? Imagine what would happen if the tens of millions of people living below the poverty line across the country followed the example set by the people of New Orleans, and began to take what they need to survive, and cooperate to survive.

If this sort of action went unpunished in New Orleans, the results could be catastrophic for American capitalism and highly revolutionary. And this is why the cops and the National Guard have been told to shoot and kill looters, and why they shot five people dead today: to defend the supremacy of private property at all costs.

Who Shot at the Contractors?
But, as it turns out, the people shot to death on the Danziger Bridge were not “looters” but government employees, according to The Australian. “At least five people shot dead by police as they walked across a New Orleans bridge yesterday were contractors working for the US Defense department, according to a report by The Associated Press,” the newspaper reports. “A spokesman for the Army Corps of Engineers said the victims were contractors on their way to repair a canal, the new agency said, quoting a defense Department spokesman.”

It didn’t take long, however, for the story to be revised by the corporate media: “New Orleans Police shot and killed at least five people Sunday after gunmen opened fire on a group of contractors traveling across a bridge on their way to make repairs, authorities said,” WOWT News in Omaha reports. “None of the contractors was injured, Mike Rogers, a disaster relief coordinator with the Army Corps of Engineers, told reporters in Baton Rouge.” As of this writing, the corporate media has not made mention of this serious discrepancy. No doubt the first story will be relegated to the memory hole.

Incomprehensible things are happening in New Orleans. For instance, the Ministry of Homeland Security will not allow the American Red Cross and other non-government agencies and relief organizations to deliver food. “Right now access is controlled by the National Guard and local authorities. We have been at the table every single day [asking for access]. We cannot get into New Orleans against their orders,” reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. In other words, the donation you made will not get to the people of New Orleans (and will end up in the bank account of the American Red Cross).

It appears the internet has slowed to a crawl again. If I want to post this, I better do it now.
