On October 4, Malik Rahim, a longtime community activist in New Orleans and San Francisco, spoke at the Women's Building in San Francisco about the situation in New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the disastrous response by the Bush administration and other government agencies. Malik, who lives in the Algiers community of New Orleans, discussed the grassroots community relief and rebuilding efforts underway through the Common Ground collective. (39:39 minutes)
There is tremendous evidence that 911 was governmentally orchestrated and Covered up.
Katrina blew away many of the Protests. New evidence connects all three attacks on our country, with governmental knowledge and cover up.
let the dead bury the dead, unless they're politically expedient, because you don't want people to know the numbers. Right President Gargoyle?
After the disastrous hurricane Katrina, the rage over the inactivity of the authorities ass great. However the censors appeared with their moralizing undertone when indignation was first heard in the media.. The camaraderie of government and media recalls other events.
So far slave revolt has provided five shows consisdering Hurricane Katrina
and the US reponse.
The federal government is paying $200 billion to bring in outside companies to rebuild New Orleans, while hundreds of thousands of the city's evacuees languish in shelters across the country, jobless and penniless. What's wrong with this picture?
A little tune to rock da white house.
9-11 Insider & Director of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff
Robert Scheer in "The Nation" wrote that the catastrophe was the result of a campaign to systematically demonize the role of the central government in American life.
After watching what the Commander in Chief does with the military in Iraq and Afghanistan, do we really want to have the army going in every time there is some kind of natural disaster in America.
AMERICA has still not delivered on almost two thirds of the aid it promised victims of the Boxing Day tsunami. It heads a table of rich nations which have failed to come up with the goods - handing over just £77million of the £201million it pledged for relief. The US contribution represents just 2.2per cent of the £3.5billion raised worldwide after the disaster claimed 300,000 lives in south east Asia.
After so many years of Social Darwinism, Hurricane katrina could reawaken the American people's appetite for compassion in government.

The current radar loop shows that Rita's rain band is dropping heavy rains onto New Orleans, which will compound the five feet of flooding that has already taken place earlier this morning.

"We need clothes, cooking equipment, food, cooks and money to provide for thousands of hungry homeless people," says Keith McHenry, a volunteer working out of the new community center in the 9th Ward. of New Orleans.

September 18, New Orleans -- Mama Dee of 1733 N. Doregenois has not stopped since the day of the storm, August 29th. She, like so many New Orleans and Gulf Coast residents, is doing everything in her power and beyond imagination to maintain some semblance of everyday life and to rebuild from the shattering of the storm and neglect.
INFORMATION about where Rita is likely to strike.
High probabilities for Port Arthur (86%) then Galveston (64&) by Saturday 7 p.m. within 65 miles of eye of Rita.
We have exposed over the past weeks how FEMA has been selling the American people on the Martial Law Police State in the Katrina aftermath. Will the federal Government attempt to conduct another laboratory test scenario for total dictatorial control should Rita provide the right conditions? Numerous credible sources have come forward with examples of how the FEMA has been deliberately sabotaging relief efforts in New Orleans, making things worse than need be. Jefferson Parish President Aaron Broussard appeared on Meet the Press and broke down in tears as he described FEMA's criminal activities. Broussard stated "We had Wal-Mart deliver three trucks of water, trailer trucks of water. FEMA turned them back. They said we didn't need them. This was a week ago. FEMA--we had 1,000 gallons of diesel fuel on a Coast Guard vessel docked in my parish. The Coast Guard said, "Come get the fuel right away." When we got there with our trucks, they got a word. "FEMA says don't give you the fuel."...FEMA is being treated as the enemy because they are sabotaging key facilities in an effort to intentionally worsen the already desperate scenes of horror in New Orleans. [and now in Texas for sure.] FEMA/federal troops illegally initiated total gun confiscation of law abiding citizens--without receipts so they are unclaimable--and forcibly removed them from their property in New Orleans.
"They are throwing money out, they are shoveling it out the door," said James Albertine, a Washington lobbyist and past president of the American League of Lobbyists, told the New York Times. "I'm sure every lobbyist's phone in Washington is ringing off the hook from his clients. Sixty-two billion dollars is a lot of money -- and it's only a down payment."
Charmaine Neville is arriving in Portland on Saturday evening to perform at Blues for Katrina on Sunday on the waterfront. Watch this video and you'll be standing there wiht flowers just like me. This is the text from Reggie Houston's email, her former bandmate who now lives in Portland.
Tune in on Sept. 25 Sunday afternoon at 3:30pm for the fourth installment of Got Soul Radio?
We will feature an interview with Ken Zatarain a New Orleans native who works for Tri-met. Your calls and questions are welcome. Post questions for Ken below asap, as the interview may be prerecorded.
110 absconders from the Dajjal Department of Homeland Security's Transportation Security Agency at Houston's George Bush Airport are living proof that "These colors don't just run - they hide". Their abandonment of Houston evacuees in their hour of need is further evidence, as if any were needed, that trust in dajjal Bush or any of his useless agencies is worthless.
As thousands march this weekend against the Iraq war, the dramatic and tragic events in New Orleans have starkly posed the need for a new, socialist political strategy to guide the struggle against militarism and social reaction.
The massive loss of life and human suffering on the US Gulf Coast are not so much the product of a sudden natural disaster as of a protracted societal disintegration, of which the Iraq war is itself a manifestation.
Up to 45 elderly Rita evacuees may have been killed by an explosion caused by a defective bus.
"Justice", antichrist style:
"Many of the men held at jail had been arrested for offenses like criminal trespass, public drunkenness or disorderly conduct. Many had not even been brought before a judge and charged, much less been convicted."
Fed up with being the targets of Congressional Medicaid cuts and being pitted against Katrina survivors for essential services ADAPT activists occupied the offices of Congressional leaders for hours Monday
Independent Media Group subMedia (http://submediatv.com) has released a music video to accompany the track 'George Bush Don't Like Black People' by the legendary K.O.

On September 20, after Vinny and I visited the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, we headed over to the Reliant Arena to find out more information about Katrina survivors being transfered from the Arena to Fort Chaffee, a military base in Arkansas.
So this is what is has come to: the antichrist of our age, one of the 30 dajjals to come before the Day of Judgment, the "leader of the Free World" who believes himself to be God - is the sort of Margaritaville gutter drunkard one might see stumbling out of a bar singing some "She done me wrong" song. Dajjal Bush is a loser in every sense of the word. Imagine putting such a reprobate in command of the nuclear button and all US military forces, and it is easy to understand why the US is in such a mess and why the US has repeatedly attracted the wrath of Allah (S.W.T.).
On September 20, Vinny and I returned to the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston to find out what was happening with the Katrina survivors since the Convention Center was closing it's doors as a shelter. An "Exit Only" sign on the doors made it clear that Katrina survivors were no longer welcome at the Convention Center. According to Anna Holly, Onsite Public Information Officer, it was time to "get back to business, back to conventions."
script ot KATRINA benefit exents in Portland and of relief agencies we think treat minority groups with respect and equal attention
Hurricane Rita...zipped from tropical storm to Category 5 hurricane in 30 hours--storm equivalent of racecar going 0 to 100 in nothing flat. --- first time ever in one hurricane season, two Cat 5's cross Gulf of Mexico on nearly identical paths. --- AIR FORCE HAS POWER TO 'ZAP' STORM, DEMOTE IT, THOUGH THEY DON'T, THEY JUST 'ZAP' PICTURE EVIDENCE OF STORM STEERING. "President Bush, in a speech to the Republican Jewish Coalition, told residents, "listen carefully to the instructions provided by [your terrorist lackeys in the] state and local authorities, and follow them." 'Cause when we finally get a more complete cleanout unlike Katrina, then we can really take over your homes for corporate development purposes, shut down media, start martial law, confiscate guns illegally, have wet ops destroy infrastructure, shoot witnesses, test microwave crowd control devices, build FEMA camps, starve you out, import private paramilitary from Iraq, and bring in more international troops to destroy you. We did that in Katrina. And it worked. That, America, is my "response". Thank you for being such a nation of fools. God bless America. God bless FEMA. Let her rip, Mayfield and Chertoff. Power up that mother. Let's roll.'
Normally when a hurricane makes landfall the eyewall dissolves and it quickly breaks up into disorganized thunderstorms. But Hurricane Rita is projected by the National Hurricane Center to remain a fully organized Tropical Storm hundreds of miles inland after landfall as it passes over Crawford, the Texas village that is missing its idiot.
Hurricane Rita announced to be Category 4
KatrinaWere New Orleans levees dynamited? By whom and why? Pick a conspiracy theory: "either by white racists in order to kill African-American residents, and/or by corporate 'freelance' special interests to provide lucrative public contracts -- to companies like the neo-con corporations Halliburton and Blackwater?"
Questions mount over Hurricane Katrina's death count. Estimates are now well below 10,000 with the death toll currently standing at 648 for Louisiana, Mississippi, and Florida. So, why did the Bush Administration order 75,000 body bags?
As of yet, HUD has not even offered any temporary Section 8 vouchers to Katrina's victims.
wondering what the story is.....
It's even worse in Mississippi, but the efforts are even less organized there. These animals need your help. See if the airlines might provide discounts for rescuers too.
The hurricane, Kristol says, made visible a greater problem, the increasing number of Americans caught in an endless cyclone of poverty.. A million more Americans lived in poverty in 2004 compared to 2003.
great audio from the eye of the storm
On September 17, I spoke with Josh from New Orleans. He was sitting on a curb outside of Reliant Arena in Houston, Texas. Reliant Arena is a building next to the Astrodome and has been considered a part of 'Dome City.' Our interview begins with Josh explaining that he could get arrestted that night just for talking to me and giving me a recorded interview. (42:22 minutes / 19.4 MB)
"The gigantic relief machinery first started almost a week after the beginning of the catastrophe.. Hyper-modern America found it shockingly difficult to act in the emergency and provide the fastest possible relief to the despairing.."
On Saturday September 17, Vinny and I were on our way to the Reliant Arena, but we got a little lost in the sprawling city of Houston, Texas so we made our way to the George R. Brown Convention Center first. This convention center is next to the new baseball stadium where tens of thousands of people were watching an Astros game. Nobody seemed to care that in the building next to the baseball stadium, more than a thousand people still struggling to survive the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
Apparently, the Bush administration has finally initiated a plan to deal with the havoc of Katrina: When all else fails, blame the environmentalists. And so, after coming under attack from the entire nation due to their ineptitude, obvious racism, and inexcusably slow response to the hurricane disaster, the administration has responded by digging through their pockets to see if there is any conceivable way that they can blame environmentalists for the flooding of New Orleans.
Getting the money FEMA promises in emergencies can be a nightmare. This article discusses how one mother got her FEMA check out of the government after the Northridge earthquake and offers practical advice for others in a similar situation now regarding Katrina.
As you can see from these pics here, the widespread worries about all the lost pets, especially dogs and cats, starving to death, are somewhat overdrawn.
chance for Rove to spin a tropical storm
Computer models predict another powerful hurricane strike in the Gulf Coast sometime this coming weekend.
"Hey, no one told us international NATO military guys at Northcom we can't use foreign troops to invade--to get around the American Posse Commutatus ban against domestic troops...."
Actually, Northcom has a well placed list of exceptions on the Northcom.mil website, already planned out: here's a list of already set up "exceptions" they mention to the Posse Commutatus Act. Expect these "exceptions" to be utilized by Northcom--or invented--as a context for further internationalized martial law in the U.S.A. "as the HAARP turns." However, Americans are well within their rights to conduct immediate citizens arrests of major Northcom figures, and these military figures get two years jail automatically:
Section 1385 of Title 18, United States Code (USC), states: "Whoever, except in cases and under circumstances expressly authorized by the Constitution or Act of Congress, willfully uses any part of the Army or Air Force as a posse comitatus or otherwise to execute the laws shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both."
Since Congress DID NOT authorize this action--the only way it could fathomably occur--and it doesn't fit in their legal exceptions mentioned below we are to conclude fairly that Northcom's actions after Hurricane Katrina are a breach of the Posse Commutatus Act as well as a treasonous act combined, and we may conduct citizens arrest of major Northcom figures RIGHT NOW. Who wants to organize the PR for that?
Animal welfare charities working in New Orleans and Louisiana to save animals affected by the hurricane, have repeatedly asked Governor Blanco and President Bush's federal agencies to provide more assistance. From the lack of necessary help to the abandoned animals stuck in people's homes and starving and dying on the streets of Louisiana, Governor Blanco has shown she does not care about animals, or the families and their pets in the State of Louisiana. They have done nothing despite numerous requests by people asking for them to help.

"You'd Have Done the Same For Us"
Impeach this month-long vacationing, negligent, treasonous, psychopathic "fiddling while Rome burns" twit. Call his bluff and impeach him. Call his bluff and send him to jail for the Plame Case, for rigged elections, for 9-11, etc.
"They're trying to say that greater federal authority would have made a difference," said George Haddow, a former FEMA deputy chief of staff... "The reality is that the feds are the ones that screwed up in the first place."
Bush has already allowed international armed troops (Dutch, Mexican, Canadian) to "police" the areas of the South. Wake up dummies. Wake up. FEMA has been building million person camps in the midwest now through israeli contractors for the last few years.
KATRINA TIMELINE below showing Bush's team's willful negligence and malice in creating a "non-response disaster" and with FEMA impeding help for the people in the area instead of aiding.
