By all accounts, FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) acted abominably during the first five days of the disaster delivered by Hurricane Katrina. Defenders of the agency can only plead incompetence, while detractors noted that the actions of FEMA officials on the ground in New Orleans constituted dictatorship. Let us quickly review some of these actions before we get into the meat of our article.
NEWS BRIEF: "The disaster response: 'Magnificent' or 'embarrassment'?", CNN News, September 2, 2005
"Terry Ebbert, New Orleans' homeland security chief, told WWL-TV that he thinks FEMA's response to the disaster has been an 'embarrassment'. Walter Maestri, the emergency management director in suburban Jefferson Parish, said FEMA and other federal agencies are not delivering help nearly as fast as it is needed ... New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin took the extraordinary step Thursday of sending a message through the media -- which he termed a 'desperate SOS' -- advising the crowd at the convention center to march over the Crescent City Connection bridge to the west bank of the Mississippi River to find relief in neighboring Jefferson Parish. 'The convention center is unsanitary and unsafe, and we are running out of supplies for the 15- to 20,000 people', he said. Later in a radio interview, Nagin was even more direct. 'I keep hearing that it's coming. This is coming. That is coming. My answer to that is B.S. Where is the beef?"
Toward the end, this article speaks directly about the plight of the hospitals -- remember, hospitals and medical staff form a community's first line of defense against a disaster, whether it is manmade or natural. Hospitals should have had relief supplies flown by helicopters within 12 hours of the storm.
"But there was perhaps no clearer illustration of the disconnect between how emergency officials view the situation at a distance, and how it is viewed by those actually living it on the ground, than Brown's comments to CNN's Wolf Blitzer Thursday evening about the evacuation of hospitals in the city. 'I've just learned today that we ... are in the process of completing the evacuations of the hospitals, that those are going very well', he said."
"Shortly after he made those comments, Dr. Michael Bellew, a resident at Charity Hospital, where more than 200 patients were still waiting to be evacuated, described desperate conditions. The hospital had no power, no water, food was running out and nurses were bagging patients by hand because ventilators didn't work." (Ibid.)
On Day Five after the storm made landfall, Charity Hospital was still caring for more than 200 patients, and had no power, water, or food -- and the ventilators were not working! These facilities should have been the first to be either resupplied or evacuated.
After the levees broke and New Orleans quickly began her slide into the abyss to become a "dead city", FEMA was apologetic and President Bush defensive. President Bush even stated that "no one could have anticipated that the levees would break", (BBC News, 1 September 2005) even though reports by the hundreds had been written since 2001, warning that the levees would likely break under a Category 5 hurricane and urgently asking for more Federal assistance to go with the state and local monies already allocated. But, the Bush Administration consistently cut those budget requests! (NEWS2070).
FEMA is also without excuse, for Colonel Brown led a simulated exercise in New Orleans in late July 2004, to test preparedness for a major hurricane. We urge you to read this FEMA report ("Hurricane Pam Exercise Concludes"), comparing the real events as the Katrina drama unfolded with the smug pride exhibited in this FEMA exercise report. You will discover that virtually none of the issues raised in this exercise --- and dealt with successfully -- were actually done at the time New Orleans was dying! FEMA knew what needed to be done, and she said she had acted to ensure these actions would be taken expeditiously, but when the real Hurricane Katrina hit, FEMA did not even try to carry out the plan.
Why? Because the objective is to "bring Order out of Chaos". The Illuminati has always created the Chaos so they could step in with their "Plan" and change the direction of the country. A New World Order is being born right now out of the chaos of Katrina, Iraq, Afghanistan, the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the 7/7 London terrorist attacks, and "rumors of wars" all over the world. Out of this chaos in New Orleans, great advances will be made toward the final implementation of the New World Order.
FEMA officials even acted in ways which led people to believe they wanted people to die.
NEWS BRIEF: "Transcript for September 4 (2005) - Michael Chertoff, Marc Morial, Mike Tidwell, Mark Fischetti, David Wessel, Haley Barbour & Aaron Broussard", MSNBC News, September 4, 2005
"MR. BROUSSARD: Let me give you just three quick examples. 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'. Yesterday--yesterday--FEMA comes in and cuts all of our emergency communication lines. They cut them without notice. Our sheriff, Harry Lee, goes back in, he reconnects the line. He posts armed guards on our line and says, "No one is getting near these lines." Sheriff Harry Lee said that if America--American government would have responded like Wal-Mart has responded, we wouldn't be in this crisis."
To me, this revelation is the most shocking I have ever heard! Can you imagine a FEMA official lying through his teeth in turning back three trailer trucks of water, saying the people did not need them? Why, people were as thirsty as you can imagine; some victims might have actually died because that water was turned back.
Similarly, fuel was needed to supply all sorts of emergency engines. Generators need fuel to bring electricity back on; boats for rescue need fuel.. But, 'FEMA says don't give you the fuel'!
However, cutting emergency communications lines is absolutely unforgivable! FEMA cut those lines at the time they were needed most, i.e., when a massive effort needed to get underway to rescue massive numbers of people. Efficient communication was absolutely needed, and FEMA cut those lines. This fact, more than any of the other two, tells me that the purpose of the Federal Government was to kill as many people as possible, in order to kill the city of New Orleans.
The first two incidents may be passed off as miscommunication, but cutting the emergency communications lines is deliberate.
And, of course, who can forget the incredible "prophecy" FEMA issued on September 10, 2001, just one day before the attacks of 9/11 began?
NEWS BRIEF: "12 lessons that S.C. can learn from Katrina", The State Newspaper, September 4, 2005
NEWS BRIEF: "12 lessons that S.C. can learn from Katrina", The State Newspaper, September 4, 2005
"In 2001, the Federal Emergency Management Agency ranked the most likely and deadly disasters that could befall the United States. The top three were a terrorist attack on New York, an earthquake in San Francisco and a hurricane in New Orleans. The list was announced at a conference on Sept. 10. The next day was 9/11."
This news is so incredible that we need to stop right here, so we can accurately understand what we have just been told. On September 10, 2001, FEMA accurately "predicted" three" most likely and deadly disasters that could befall the United States". These deadly disasters foretold were:
1) Terrorist attack on New York
2) An earthquake in San Francisco
3) A hurricane in New Orleans
On the very next day after this FEMA prediction, the attacks of 9/11 occurred -- the Twin Towers and The Pentagon were attacked, precisely as the Illuminati Card Game predicted in 1995! A massive "Intelligence Failure" has been officially named as the reason this horrific attack occurred. Cutting Edge, on the other hand, had been warning since 1998 that terrorism against cities was going to represent the final chapter of this plan to overthrow our current civilization, plus we posted an article three months before the attacks of 9/11 (NEWS1509), warning that such an attack was probable, and seemed to be close. We even mentioned New York City as a target site.
An earthquake in San Francisco is a weather event, and a hurricane in New Orleans is certainly a weather event. How could FEMA in 2001 possibly predict a hurricane in New Orleans and an earthquake in San Francisco as two of the most deadly "threats" America faces? You could understand that a prediction of a "terrorist attack" in New York City might be based upon accurate intelligence, but nobody can "predict" weather events in specific locations.
Not even is the explanation that these locations were especially vulnerable to this type of disaster really adequate. These predictions -- coming one day before the first one came true -- are too accurate as to time and location to be accidental. But, once you understand that the Illuminati had prepared these types of events decades ago in order to overthrow the existing system and replace it with their coveted "New World Order", then this 2001 "prediction" becomes understandable.
F.E.M.A.'S ORIGINAL INTENT AND HER MANDATE
Now that we have seen how high-handily -- even dictatorially -- FEMA acted during the Katrina disaster, let us proceed to examine FEMA's original intent and the extent of her charter. You will be both shocked and dismayed to see how much unbridled, raw power FEMA will wield during a contrived "disaster".
F.E.M.A. is such a shadowy government agency that most citizens are barely aware of its existence; neither are they aware of the reality that, in a fully developed National Emergency, this agency is poised through Executive Orders to seize dictatorial control of our entire nation and its infrastructure. Overnight, the Director of F.E.M.A. could become the most powerful man in the United States!
In fact, this control is so far-reaching and pervasive, one has to stop to contemplate what has happened to the President of the United States at this moment in our history? Why do these laws speak of the power of F.E.M.A. as though the President did not exist? In this article, we shall discuss the powers given F.E.M.A. and then look into the question as to where the President might be during this time.
F.E.M.A. -- SOME FACTS
One day, possibly soon, during some great national disaster, the President of the United States might appear on national TV to announce that he is placing the United States in a formal state of National Emergency. With the stroke of his pen, the President would invoke the terrible powers of F.E.M.A. -- Federal Emergency Management Agency.
The major danger posed by this declaration of a National Emergency is that Executive Orders from Presidents as far back as Nixon, provide that, if any National Emergency is declared, for whatever reason, and is never rescinded, then ALL Executive Orders relating to emergency situations can be implemented. The result of such an implementation is that the Federal Government, under the auspices of the Federal Emergency Management Agency [F.E.M.A.], Could seize total control of our nation, even suspending "temporarily" our Constitutional form of government. As you read the powers of F.E.M.A. you realize that Congress is so superseded they are not needed anymore!
New Age author Bill Cooper, writing about F.E.M.A. in his book, "Behold A Pale Horse", warns emphatically about the dangers of declaring a National Emergency over anything. F.E.M.A. Is an "interdepartmental unit which is empowered in the event of a national security emergency to become the unelected national government, a sort of F.E.M.A. secret government, so to speak. A pretext for invoking this emergency can be found almost daily in the newspapers .... anything, in fact." [Page 122]
Did you know that, on November 14, 1994, President Clinton issued an Executive Order #12938 because Weapons of Mass Destruction exist in such quantity and deliverability as to constitute a mortal threat to the United States? "Now, the Executive Order that will implement this, the Executive Order 11051, details responsibilities to the Office of Emergency Planning or F.E.M.A.. It gives authorization to put ALL Executive orders into effect in time of national emergency declared by the President, increased international tension, or financial crisis. Note that it covers every conceivable domestic crisis, but does not even mention war or nuclear attack." [Ibid., Emphasis in the original]
Perhaps this loophole is the reason President Clinton issued this Executive Order concerning weapons of Mass Destruction, i.e., nuclear, chemical and biological weapons. Let us now return to Cooper's sobering words of warning. Cooper continues:
"Now, the only thing that has to happen for F.E.M.A. to be able to implement all the executive orders, emergency executive orders, is for the President to declare a national emergency of any type, as long as it's a national emergency." [Ibid.]
President Clinton fulfilled this requirement with this Executive Order. Now, at any time of his choosing, or the choosing of the Bilderberg Group, F.E.M.A. can announce that it is taking over and can impose any or all of the following actions. [Quoting from Cooper, page 123]
Executive Order 10995 provides for the takeover of the communications media
Executive Order 10997 provides for the takeover of all electric, power, petroleum, gas, fuels, and minerals.
Executive Order 10988 provides for the takeover of food resources and farms
Executive Order 10999 provides for the takeover of all modes of transportation, control of highways, seaports, etc.
Executive Order 11000 provides for mobilization of all civilians into work brigades under the Government supervision.
Executive Order 11001 provides for Government takeover of all health, education and welfare functions.
Executive Order 11002 designates the Postmaster General to operate a national registration of all persons.
Executive Order 11003 provides for the Government to take over airports and aircraft
Executive Order 11004 provides for the Housing and Finance Authority to relocate communities, designate areas to be abandoned, and establish new locations for populations. [Cutting Edge NOTE: In NEWS1186, "Our Present Civilization Has To Die", we reported that the Plan called for the President to start relocated people in "safe" areas, just prior to the time when Mother Gaia (Earth) begins to "cleanse" herself with absolutely devastating natural disasters. Please also examine some of our "Re-wilding" articles: NEWS1863, NEWS1368, NEWS1862]
Executive Order 11005 provides for the Government to take over railroads, inland waterways, and public storage facilities.
All these above Executive Orders were combined into one huge Executive Order which allows all these power seizures to take place if the President declares a national emergency. Further, the head of F.E.M.A., not the President, can implement this seizure! In this issue of Executive Orders allowing for Government takeover during times of National Emergency, we have seen the continuous thread of action running from Presidents Nixon to Clinton. Remember Thomas Jefferson's warning about how to spot a Conspiracy? Let us review his statement one more time, remembering he made this statement about 200 years ago.
"Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion of a day; but a series of oppressions .... pursued unalterably through every change of ministers, too plainly prove a deliberate, systematic plan of reducing us to slavery." ["The Works of Thomas Jefferson", Volume 1, p. 130, as quoted in "The Unseen Hand", by A. Ralph Epperson, p. 196; Emphasis added]
In other words, when you see different ministers of government acting consistently to accomplish something over a wide period of time, you know you are looking at absolute proofs of conspiracy! I don't know about you, but I would take the wisdom of Thomas Jefferson over the wisdom of Rush Limbaugh any day of the week. For those of you who do not listen to Rush, I am speaking here of Rush's emphatic declaration that the idea of a conspiracy to bring about a global government and economy is ridiculous. But, every time I hear Rush Pontificate about his belief that a belief in conspiracy is weak-headed thinking, I believe even more that Rush is a very sophisticated part of that conspiracy. After all, if you can convince a person that a conspiracy does not, and can not exist, you have totally disarmed that person's defenses.
Therefore, President Clinton set the stage with Executive Order #12938, on November 14, 1994, for the Federal Government to totally take over the functions of both government and the running of the country. All he needed was the declaration of a national emergency and he provided that cover with this Executive Order.
EXECUTIVE ORDER #12938 STILL IN EFFECT!
In case you might think that this Executive Order might not be in effect anymore, we are able to report to you that, not only is it still in effect, but President Bush has issued an update to the Congress every six months. Look at this most recent update preamble:
Message to the Congress of the United States
TO THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES:
As required by section 204(c) of the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, 50 U.S.C. 1703(c), and section 401(c) of the National Emergencies Act, 50 U.S.C. 1641(c), I transmit herewith a 6-month periodic report prepared by my Administration on the national emergency with respect to the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction that was declared in Executive Order 12938 of November 14, 1994.

CFR PROPOSED DISASTER SCENARIO ASSUMED "INCAPACITATED" PRESIDENT
Incredibly, we have discovered that the Illuminist CFR [Council On Foreign Relations] held a crisis "crisis gaming" scenario that assumed the "worst case" scenario that the President of the United States was "incapacitated", exactly the situation we foresaw during our reading of the powers of F.E.M.A. Let us now go to this report to read the pertinent sections. [For explanation of "CFR", read NEWS1191]
NEWS BRIEF: "CFR Bankers Plan for Financial Crash", by Richard Freeman, Executive Intelligence Review, July 28, 2000.
"On July 12-13, 2000 ... the New York Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) held a conference at its exclusive mansion-headquarters on the East Side of Manhattan, entitled 'The Next Financial Crisis: Warning Signs, Damage Control and Impact.' For two days, several speakers told a high-powered audience of 250 people, comprised largely of bankers, investors, corporation officials, and policymakers, mostly from the United States, but also from Europe, of the possibility that the U.S. stock market, and potentially the world financial system, would melt down. The conference occurred under the auspices of the CFR's 'Financial Vulnerabilities Project,' which the CFR established in 1999 to systematically look at such crises. Wall Street investment banker Roger Kubarych is the director of the project."
While many might argue that it is prudent to run exercises based on "worst case scenarios" so that, if they ever happened, our economic and political leaders would know how to efficiently handle such a crisis if it should ever occur, I submit to you the testimony of a now-retired Army Major, whose specialty was Logistics. For years, I had been warning him of the planned events which history would know as World War III. He was very, very skeptical for all these years in which I had been warning him.
Then, one day in early 2001, I received a phone call from this Major, in which he told me he had finally come to believe that what I had been saying was completely and utterly true. Taken aback by his sudden and solid belief after years of skepticism, I asked him what had prompted this complete turnaround. He stated that he had been asked over these years to plan for the sudden movement of troops and materiel for such-and-such a crisis. Just days before he called me, this Major suddenly recalled all these various exercises for which he had been asked to plan a response, and he instantly realized that each of these "exercises" concerned an exact scenario about which I had been telling him!
In other words, this Army Major realized that, instead of planning for "worst case scenarios", he was being asked to "game plan" for the exact scripted war and/or crisis that I had long been telling him were coming! I believe this is the situation with this CFR "crisis gaming" scenario; since the CFR is front-and-center in these plans to initiate crises in order to achieve the changes they desire, this crisis scenario for which they were "gaming" was simply a dress rehearsal for the events they knew were planned!
Let us now review more pertinent information from this above report:
"The conference featured discussion of the startling outcomes of a major event that the CFR Project had undertaken on Jan. 22: an eight-hour, war-game simulation of the simultaneous breakdown of major financial markets around the world ... What had been simulated, was a policy of pumping huge amounts of liquidity by the Federal Reserve, both through public sources and also through secret channels, to 'keep the main markets open'. The simulation was conducted such that 'all the public would see, is that the Fed volume of loans to banks had gone up'. Further, and darkly revealing, the CFR, according to its own testimony, the simulation began with a coup against the President of the United States ... James Jones—a former U.S. Representative from Oklahoma, U.S. Ambassador to Mexico (1993-97), and now a lawyer at Manatt, Phelps & Phillips —played the role of National Security Adviser during the simulation. On July 12, Jones reported: "We assumed that the President of the United States was incapacitated' ... We had to decide whether to take powers from the President."
A coup against the President of the United States!? The Cabinet had to decide whether they would take powers from the President!
Notice this last statement used the word "incapacitated". Now, the President is "incapacitated" only in a limited number of scenarios:
1. He is removed from power by a coup. Usually, the initiators of a coup are members of the military.
2. He is "incapacitated" by assassination. During the nearly 18 months since the 9/11 attacks, we have been darkly warned that Arab terrorists might strike against our centers of governmental power in Washington, D.C. They might use small nuclear devices or extremely large conventional explosives. To guard against the latter possibility, traffic has been rerouted in Government Mall and anti-vehicle barriers have been erected.
3. He is "incapacitated" when he is undergoing surgery and is placed under anesthesia.
4. He is "incapacitated" if he gets very, very sick, and especially if the sickness interferes with his capacity to think and carry out his duties.
But, I find it highly disturbing to closely read this last statement from James Jones: "We had to decide whether to take powers from the President."
Since when does the Cabinet possess the ability to decide "whether to take powers from the President"? The Vice President has some limited authority to declare the President incapacitated in some of these areas mentioned above, but in no instance I could ascertain does the Cabinet is empowered to "take powers from the President." I called Dr. Dennis Cuddy to confirm this fact.
Now, let us continue with this most revealing article.
Setting a Breakdown into Motion
"The first session of the July 12-13 (2000) conference situated elements that could help set a financial breakdown into motion." This breakdown would occur gradually, over a period of time. This proposed scenario contained the following planned elements:
1. Warnings of high U.S. debt levels -- As the scenario warned: "Contagion can spread quickly through the financial system. Today we have far greater repercussions which happen quickly, as we saw in [crises] in 1987, '94, and '98. He added that the financial markets have completely changed, and 'a bank is no longer a bank, a securities firm is no longer a securities firm'."
2. Stock Market Crash -- "Robert Shiller, economist at Yale University ... said that there is a high-tech stock bubble, 'and when it bursts, it will bring down the rest of the market. The tripling of the value of the capitalization of the [U.S.] stock market over the last five years is out of whack. There is no connection to productivity or anything. Nothing else has tripled."
"Shiller warned that the market is unsustainable, and he later said, "I believe that the market will come down sharply ... This will not be a one-day event. It will fall on one day, but the fall will continue to extend over years. It will cause a decline in the economy."
C. Planned decline of the US Dollar against the Euro and Yen
NEWS BRIEF: "Euro At Four-Year High Against Dollar", 4 March 2003
"(AFP) In London the euro powered up to a four-year high against the dollar on March 4 on worries that the prospect of a U.S.-led assault on Iraq is already hammering cracks into the U.S. economy, analysts said. The euro was changing hands at US$1.0917 from US$1.0890 late on Monday in New York, 128.30 yen (128.01), 0.6896 pounds (0.6895) and 1.4596 Swiss francs (1.4562). The dollar was being quoted at 117.56 yen (117.55) and 1.3374 Swiss francs (1.3370). The pound was at US$1.5822 (1.5785), 186.0 yen (185.55) and 2.1159 Swiss francs (2.1101)."
Since July, 2000, the dollar has consistently dropped in value against both the Euro and the Yen, some market fluctuations notwithstanding!
E. International Confrontation
As I looked at the world scene, I could find no international confrontation as this worst-case scenario envision, i.e., Ukraine and Russia going to war over lack of payment of debt. However, this current war situation with Iraq, Middle East, North Korea and a Chinese invasion of Taiwan, may handily substitute for an military international confrontation between Russia and Ukraine.
Post Script: Since the office of Homeland Security has been created, all the powers of F.E.M.A. pass to this new agency. A detailed map of Homeland Security is displayed at NEWS1743.
WHERE IS THE PRESIDENT?
All this brings us back to our original question: where is the President during this time of planned extreme crisis? Is F.E.M.A. or Homeland Security planning to be the dictator because the President is going to be gone from the scene? This is a question I have contemplated for the past several years, as the wording of New Age Author, Cooper, as he describes the dictatorial powers of F.E.M.A. were so strong it appeared that it was ruling in the place of the President, Congress, and all the state governments combined.
We hope and pray this is not the case. Truly, we seem to be entering that time when !"mens hearts shall fail them for fear"!
Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.
If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.
We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.
Finally, we would love to hear from you.
