The Great New Orleans Land Grab
The 17th Street Canal levee was breached on purpose

Ernesto Cienfuegos, La Voz de Aztlan

Los Angeles, Alta California - September 7, 2005 - (ACN) 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 breached levee
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 breached levee.
(Please Note: The original media reports concerning the shootout are
now being changed or "cleansed" in a cover-up. We found one original
report at http://www.guardian.co.uk/worldlatest/story/0,1280,-5256023,00.html " target="_new">www.guardian.co.uk/worldlatest/story/0,1280,-5256023,00.html
">http://www.guardian.co.uk/worldlatest/story/0,1280,-525602 ... La Voz de Aztlan has a mirror page of this report at http://www.aztlan.net/police_kill_five_contractors.htm in case this report gets changed or deleted as well)

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 breached levee, killing five or six.

Who were these "military agents" that were killed by the police near
the 17th Street Canal breached levee 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 levee? 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 levee 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 levee soon after it breached. There is
evidence that no repairs were allowed on the levee 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

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!

Bush and CheneyThe
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.

COVERUP: The dynamiting of the New Orleans levee system

Ernesto Cienfuegos
La Voz de Aztlan

Los Angeles, Alta California - September 11, 2005 - (ACN) New evidence is surfacing concerning the sabotaging of the New Orleans levee system that resulted in the flooding of primarily Black neighborhoods. A significant number of New Orleans residents have come forward to say that the levees were breached on purpose by the authorities.

Also, this publication has located the original Associated Press article that reported on a gun battle between the New Orleans Police Department and US military contractors near the vicinity of the breached levee along the 17th Street Canal. The original report states that New Orleans police shot and killed 5 armed US military contractors in a gun battle. The original AP report was confirmed by a US Army Corps of Engineers spokesman. The AP story has now been deleted on pretty much all news websites and a different version substituted. Our publication was forwarded a link to the original report by one of our subscribers after reading our article, "The Great New Orleans Land Grab" This article argues that the gun battle was an attempt by the New Orleans police to stop further sabotaging of the levee system by US military saboteurs under high level secret orders. We have also provided a mirror link to the original AP report on our server in case the forwarded link gets deleted or the report is changed. The original AP report is at http://www.guardian.co.uk/worldlatest/story/0,1280,-5256023,00.html Our mirror link to the report is at http://www.aztlan.net/police_kill_five_contractors.htm

Our article, "The Great New Orleans Land Grab" proposes that the sabotaging of the levee system had already been planned. They were just waiting for the right hurricane to implement it. Katrina provided just the right cover. The ultimate purpose is to rid New Orleans of poor Black folks and take their valuable land away. We are already seeing the plan take fruition. Banks and mortgage companies are now foreclosing on homes and properties because poor Black in diaspora are unable to make mortgage payments. Also, Black families in New Orleans who owned their homes outright could not afford damage insurance and do not have the money to rebuild. Most likely, their properties would be taken away for failure to pay property taxes. Developers, and contractors stand to make a lot of money in the new New Orleans. Vultures are already hovering over the devastated city. Dick Cheney was recently in town to survey the possibilities for Halliburton and deals are being made with a Las Vegas group to build multi-million casinos in the Big Easy.

Many of the Black families in diaspora already suspect the worse. Resident Andrea Garland, now re-located to Texas, said, " I also heard that part of the reason our house flooded is that they dynamited part of the levee system after the first section broke - they did this to prevent Uptown (the rich White part of town) from being flooded. Apparently they used too much dynamite, thus flooding part of the Bywater. So now I know who is responsible for flooding my house - not Katrina, but our government." There are also claims by intelligence expert Tom Heneghen that 25 earwitnesses heard explosions immediately before the levees broke. The Washington Post, in addition, interviewed John Mullen III, an African American retired schoolteacher now staying at the Houston Superdome. John Mullen III lived in the Lower Ninth Ward, an all Black neighborhood. John Mullen told the Washington Post that he believes that the levee breaks had somehow been engineered to keep the wealthy French Quarter and Garden District dry at the expense of poor Black neighborhoods like the Lower Ninth Ward -- a suspicion the Washington Post has heard from many other Black survivors.
