Meet the Press: Jefferson Parish Pres. in tears, begs for FEMA help

Presidential visit to disaster area was faked media hype
President of Jefferson Parish, Aaron Broussard, says he still doesn't have the resources needed to save the lives in his Parish.

At the end of this interview on Meet the Press, Broussard tells a heart wrenching story of a co-worker's mother that was trapped in a nursing home. She called four days in a row for help but help never came. Broussard breaks into tears as he explains that the cavalry never came and she died by drowning.

Folks, people are still trapped. People still don't have food and water. President Bush has staged some photo-ops to make it look like the Calvary had arrived and everything was under control.

Please watch and listen to all of Aaron Brousard's comments in this video...

Bush, aides move to counter criticism Image
The Bush administration has been scrambling to counter criticism that it did not move aggressively enough right after Hurricane Katrina swept through.

The White House quickly arranged another trip by the president to the Gulf Coast on Monday, while he and Laura Bush paid a thank-you call on the Red Cross's disaster operations center on Sunday and announced a White House blood drive. Read more...

He's determined to go back. He's taking supplies with him. I'm afraid that our national guard or some of those Marines that Bush is sending in (are they corporate soldiers in Marine's clothing?) will shoot him.

in front of them. We'll pray for him, but you don't have to worry if he's GIVING stuff (that does not mean I agree with the shoot the "looters" rule because they are NOT looters they are survivalists, BUT your husband will be obviously bringing stuff TO them, so please don't worry)

I wish to point out a case of selective reporting I ran across on Yahoo News. Check it out here, the part I am referencing is about halfway down the article:

It is shameful the way Yahoo News deleted the first part of Aaron Broussard's statement in which he was stridently critical of the federal response. In the context of the Yahoo News' piece Mr. Broussard's statement's intent was totally lost. Here is how Yahoo News reported it:

"The strain was apparent in other ways. Aaron Broussard, president of Jefferson Parish, dropped his head and cried on NBC's "Meet the Press."

"The guy who runs this building I'm in, emergency management, he's responsible for everything. His mother was trapped in St. Bernard nursing home, and every day she called him and said, `Are you coming, son? Is somebody coming?' And he said, `And yeah, Momma, somebody's coming to get you. Somebody's coming to get you on Tuesday. Somebody's coming to get you on Wednesday. Somebody's coming to get you Thursday. Somebody's coming to get you on Friday' — and she drowned Friday night. She drowned on Friday night," Broussard said.

"Nobody's coming to get her, nobody's coming to get her. The secretary's promise, everybody's promise. They've had press conferences — I'm sick of the press conferences. For God's sakes, shut up and send us somebody.""

In no way does this redacted excerp of Mr. Broussard's statement convey his original intent, instead exploiting his tremendous sorrow and strong emotions. This is not news journalism. This is sensationalism. This is spin.

more crimes from the mafia family in the white house
anyone see the hitler in the bunker movie last year???
or oliver stones nixon? wandering the halls talking to lincoln;
drunk on his ass calling kissinger in the early hours
bush will either fall off the wagon
or be put on medication by his handlers.if hes not already.
they wont go down easy; but its time .
should get real interesting from here to impeachment
wag the dog???? nuclear????
he might bankrupt the country before he gets out
he should share a cell with saddam both war criminals

What is shocking is when he recounts the story of FEMA turning away trucks of fresh water gifted from Walmart and FEMA cutting the police telephone lines. They had to place armed guards to protect the lines from FEMA agents.

The problem with FEMA is not underfunding. There is something far more sinister at work with these guys.

PNAC wasn't counting on Katrina

FEMA has been highjacked and is now, like so many other agencies, working for a differnet agenda. And, yes, it is not to much to say there is something more sinister at work. How could obstructing aid to a disaster NOT be evidence of this.
Just like they say "follow the money", we can also say "follow the behavior". Any sane person would never deny the seriously skewed nature of all of this behavior. It goes completely against human nature.

(I am copying my post from an earlier blog on ASD here since it is appropriate here. I saw this man break down and bawl his eyes about his friend's Mama on live TV. His account is one of the worst stories of official neglect during a natural disaster I have heard in America. With all this other video we are seeing out of New Orleans, I feel like I am witnessing the behavior of Third World leaders )

On Tim Russert just now (thank you, Tim for REAL reporting)

A man just bawled his eyes out telling Tim how the "calvary" FEMA never came and his colleague in this mess had promised his Mama that they would come to his Mama, in a nursing home. He said his colleague told his Mama they were coming Tuesday, and then Wednesday, and then Thursday, and then Friday and then his colleague's Mama drowned Friday because the "calvary" never came. Here this grown man was bawling his eyeballs out on national TV for his colleague and friend's Mama. This man said that the calvary promised , but never came, and he is just barely now hearing the first horse hoof of the first "calvary" and here it is SUNDAY, two day's after his colleague's Mama drowned. That crying man said he is sick of the press conferences, he does not want to hear one more press conference , he just wants the people at top to send the emergency people NOW (last week would've been better) He said the people at the top need to be accountable and fired, and I know he meant Bush

But how do I tell this man that his friend's Mama does not matter to Bush? How do I tell Kanye West that it isn't about black or white or brown, Bush doesn't give a shit about "the masses" AT ALL, Bush just cares about the evil elite? How do I tell that weeping man that Bush is merely a puppet of the PNAC and he takes orders from Cheney? How do I tell him that Cheney plotted to get in office years ago just to take over the world using the masses as military pawns like some sort of Orwellian madman? How do I tell this man that FEMA is a tool of Cheney, not a service to the PEOPLE? How do I tell this man whose Mama died that there is a vast evil conspiracy called PNAC and his Mama was useless to them, therefore neglected? How do I tell anybody any of this? Why won't the MSM tell anybody any of this? Will the man who is burying his Mama believe me? Will the friend of his who was bawling his eyes out on national TV believe me? God believes me, God knows what is true.

Government Insider Says Bush Authorized 911 Attacks
From Thomas Buyea

Keep in mind when reading this, that the man being interviewed is no two-bit internet conspiracy buff.

Stanley Hilton was a senior advisor to Sen Bob Dole (R) and has personally known Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz for decades. This courageous man has risked his professional reputation, and possibly his life, to get this information out to people.

The following is from his latest visit to Alex Jones' radio show.
To hear Alex's interview with Stanley Hilton -

What if:

* The Twin Towers were not hit by commercial airliners?
* The World Trade Center was brought down in a controlled demolition?
* The Pentagon was not hit by a 757?
* Flight 93 was shot down?

Four years after September 11th, the American People are left with more questions than answers. This documentary addresses those questions, as well as providing the evidence necessary to begin answering them. From the phony bin Laden tape to the lack of a 757 at the Pentagon, Loose Change wraps everything up into an hour of solid evidence.
