(Editor's note: This letter was posted on an earlier thread.)

Here is the letter that I am sending to my congressional representatives:

Dear Senators Santorum and Specter and Representative Hart:

After watching the Weather Channel repeatedly warn of the approach of Hurricane Katrina, I was shocked after the storm hit to read in the news that New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson on Sunday, August 28, 2005 had called Louisiana Governor Blanco to offer to send National Guard troops from New Mexico to assist the State of Louisiana. On Thursday, September 1, 2005, permission from Washington was finally given.

Do you recall the day and time that Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf coast? Can you count the number of hours that transpired between the time that New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson called Louisiana Governor Blanco and the time that Washington finally gave permission? Can you count the number of people who died in that time frame? Can you count the number of people who could have been saved had the troops been promptly dispatched?

That failure of the Bush Administration to react promptly to the offer of help from New Mexico to Louisiana is not unique.

On 2005/08/31, the Canadian press reported that Canada was prepared to send aid directly to Louisiana, “after Louisiana officials asked for help.

Great Letter. I'm going to call my representative (Grijalva) and senators (KYL an McCain) tomorrow.

McCain has been very quiet since he and dumbya celebrated his birthday while people died. Guess he knows he helped the preznitwit step in s--t. Probably keeping quiet hoping others won't notice when we go to the polls next time he is up for election. I won't forget and will be reminding everyone here in Arizona.

I hope you will be here in DC on September 26, the Monday after the big demo, to meet with your members of Congress. These people have a lot of explaining to do. Your letter sets the stage.

Of course, we still all need to know about the "noble cause" that is killing people right and left in Iraq.

If the People Lead The leaders follow
The time has come. There is sufficient evidence for george w. bush’s impeachment.The Congress wont do it without tremendous pressure from us.With support, individual congressmen will abandon the bush war/sinking ship especially if DSM gets the legs it needs to start impeachment. President Clinton was attacked viciously and impeached for lying about sex. Bushco's lying to both the Congress and the American people about the reasons for going to war requires/demands impeachment. This is not the only action which demands congressional inquiry and action. There are a plethora of corruption scandals, including those involving Delay, Hasstert and Rove.

One of the largest is the war profiteering/theft by CEO Cheney’s Halliburton Cheney as VP is still receiving a salary from Halliburton !!!They are offshore and therefore avoid paying taxes while continuing to profit from the war in Iraq. The loss to tax paying citizens is in the Billions of dollars. This is criminal.

Cindy Sheehan got us started. We all have to start speaking out with simple truths and asking logical reasonable questions of the regime which thinks its a Kings Court.

The 50 percent that think they have the luxury of ignoring what is going on by not voting or participating have to be educated and included in our national debate.
If they have children; talk about education, the cost of military defense spending, the logic of war which only leads to the use of nuclear weapons ( see CommonDreamOrg most emailed article by Noam Chomsky on Nuclear War). Children are adversely affected by the destruction of the environment and allowing corporations to once again avoid accountability for chemical, toxic contamination and pollution of our air, water, and land. They are stealing our commonly held National Resources e.g. protected wilderness

An Endless War on Terror or an expanded version of the interminable Israeli/ Palestinian conflict means that your children will be living with the specter of war all their lives? It is possible.
For some Endless war means Endless profits.

If people are concerned with moral or ethical issues; talk about the killing of innocent civilians, lying, stealing and all the other unchristian activities of the bushco regime. Or describe all the ongoing ethics violations hidden by the republican majority.

If they are workers talk about the loss of real income, i.e. we are working harder and getting paid less, growing medical costs can eat up a lifetime's savings while bush offers rising living costs, and a huge growing national debt which the children will pay. buscho is intentionally creating this national debt in order to bankrupt Social Security, Medicare and other social programs which they despise.
Is this an extreme view ? Turn on the tv and look at Louisiana.
This is how the bush administration views their responsibility to use the power and resources of our help its citizens.

If people love freedom. Ask them to read the Patriot act, tell them there is a 3rd version waiting in the wings for the next terrorist attack. Ask them to view the way anyone who criticizes this regime is criminally slandered at every level by the goebbelistic propaganda machine of state radio which runs 24/7. Many of the corporations like GE who profit from the manufacture of war tools also control television networks like NBC etc. Research that if you think we have free press. Consider the blackout of media in Iraq or the fact that more reporters have been killed in Iraq than died in Vietnam. bushcheneyrove hate our freedoms; especially freedom of the press, freedom of speech and our rights of dissent.

If they are psychologists/therapists/healers/ point out the obvious mental/emotional illness betrayed by the behavior of bush As Governor Texas was 49th in education and 1st in executions. This from a man who talks about the culture of life. Look at cheney or rice and the whole pantheon of assorted characters that surround them. Boulton serial abuser, Negroponte who heads our new National Intelligence Agency/National Secret Police is a political hack who supervised the use of death squads in El Salvador and Guatemala during the Raygun regime. Wolfowitz who helped sell the war is appointed head of the World Bank. Reflect on the fact that these are the people who have their finger on the button and whom have been given uncontrolled, unaccountable and secretive powers by their own fictitious, illegal, and immoral declaration of war.

The combination of the Patriot Act and the creation of this new national secret police plus intolerance for dissent means we better hang together or hang separately.If this seems extreme goggle VIPS a concerned group of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for a Sane Policy. Read what this group of career intelligence professionals have to say about the direction the radical richt is taking America. Many are republicans or reformed republicans Goggle www. gov/house/ McKinney for the recent inquiry they had at the Capital This is absolutely frightening testimony from career professionals with many decades of government experience in our military and intelligence.

Bush as a War President has unbridled power, the war on terror means that every square inch of the USA is considered a battlefield
The rules of war can be twisted to squelch dissenting speech. They have the right to invade our privacy without our knowledge.There is a consolidation of intelligence/police agencies. There is spying on such terrorist groups as the Raging Grannies, and the ACLU.
People can and are being locked up with out telling their families, or without legal representation. All this falls under the umbrella of National Security during time of war. As Mr. Ray McGovern said, basically you have the fox guarding the hen house. These are general statements not exact. The overall impact on our rights is there.

We all need to be concerned with the changes in the Judicial branch, ie. in the courts as bushco continues to replace judges. Obvious infringements of what were our civil, individual, citizen's, worker's, women’s, children’s right will be allowed by the bush's new radical right wing judicial appointees. Women’s rights activists should be especially concerned as they may finally overturn Roe vs. Wade. Bush now has 2 new appointments for the SUPREME COURT. These are lifetime appointments.. Cause for worry?

If they like critical thinking; point out all the lies, logical inconsistencies, false choices, straw men, slippery slopes and the general attack on the truth which characterizes this administration. Its only logical to assume that this most secretive of regimes has something to hide; thus the secretiveness. If they like the truth tell them “Too many lies can kill a Democracy

I've been screamimg this, repeatedly, all summer. The BUSH ADMINISTRATION, and the PNAC, all the neo-con members in the U S congress, and the U S SENATE, are a well entrenched criminal organisation and that, although comendible as it is in employing the RULE OF LAW to pull these criminal's OUT OF OFFICE and make them STAND ACCOUNTIBLE, I FELT THEN, AS I DO NOW, THAT THIS MAY BE IMPOSSIBLE. THEIR TOO WELL ENTRENCHED! THEIR DUG IN!

I,ve said continually, that while we sit here and debate all these issue's, our troops die.

Now, we've,, all of us,, crossed into a new threshold the likes of which we've all suspected could, probably would, occure. It doesen't really matter what is is that got us, natural disaster or terrorist attack, the magnitude of distruction and loss of human life has reached munumental purportion.

We are all well aware now as to the scope the neglegence played in the substantial number's of death's that occured after the huricane. This neglegence is all the more criminal in view of the eqpt, and resources that were diverted to stage phony photo/opp's for PRESIDENT BUSH!


I now put theses questions to EVERY ONE OF YOU READING THIS
Have you seen enough death and distruction yet? prior to this week the death and distruction was far far away in IRAQ. Now you've seen it up close and personal.

George Bush is responsible for a high percentage of what you see as A result of his diversion of funds earmarked for ARMY CORP OF ENGINEERS PROJECTS TO STRENGTHEN THOSE LEVEE'S. He took a gamble and he lost and so did the CITIZENS OF NEW ORLEANS! He reorganized FEMA into an insignificant ineffective emergency response agency. And N.O. died as a result ALONG WITH TOO MANY OF IT'S POOREST CITIZENS.


In closing, the following MUST be stated and understood, by those who will take the initiative in securing legal vindication. Failure to acquire this manditory legal vindication will not be an exceptible option, in the face of this administration's attempt's to subvert these effort's. Our god given RULE OF LAW is the last point of demarcation before venturing into the possibillity of a citizen action that resorts to other means to acquire this necessary and morally deserving legal vindication. I hope my meanning here is fully understood.

I want to say this also. I have a great respect for GENERAL RUSSELL HONROE and i hope he has the moral fortitude to see clearly the truth relivant to his COMMANDER & CHIEF and this ADMINISTRATION.
I say this because it will deeply saden me to face him in the field of honor. on this subject, i sayeth furthur not**HUMPHREY**

MONDAY SEP 5,2005 11:25AM CST


On Friday, she accompanied President Bush on his flt tour of the city. One of the stops and inspections was at the breach at the 17th St levee. Sen Landrieu stated she observed several pieces of heavy construction eqpt. had been brought to that breach, and it appeared to the senator that a real effort was being conducted to repair this breach. 24 hours latter, she was making another overhead inspection to observe what progress had been made and was shocked to see only one small backhoe present. In other words , all the heavy machinery brought to that location, the preveious day, for Bush's inspection, was nothing more that staged event, a phony photo op, and after Bush left, the machinery was taken away except for a single backhoe.

Another report, i read yesterday, stated at another location the president visited, a receiving/disembarkment center had been set up and personel were going through the (phony)motions of appearing to be busy receiving/distrubuting aid supplies to victims. A German news reporter who was present stated that he observed that upon the presidents departure from this location, this receiving/distrubution center was immediatly dismantled and taken away by trucks. The reporter from Germany, could not beleive what he had witnessed. Again, this was a phony event staged for background effect.

clearly, CLEARLY!!! This is certainly grounds to substantiate that a criminal investigation is warranted in view of other information that is known of areas that have been totally neglited (see the sunday MEET THE PRESS INTERVIEW FOR FURTHER REF)resulting in needless loss of life when we clearly have evidence that manpower and recource's have been withheld and diverted in order to stage phony rescue and support events. President Bush's participation (presense) clearly implicates him as a participant. How is this connection made to the president? Because only individual's within his inner circle would see any need to stage phony event's such as this. Individuals who were appointed and employed by other individual's directly connected to the Bush Administration. The President must stand directly accountible for the illegal conduct committed by individuals under his authority, who clearly demonstrate conduct that is in direct oppisition to the best interrest's of the american population, in general, and the NO victim's in particular.

The evidence that supports this terrible impropriety is direct witness testimony from a UNITED STATES SENATOR, MARY LANDRIEU, AS WELL AS THE EYE WITNESS GERMAN REPORTER WHO CAN EASILY BE TRACKED DOWN THROUGH HIS PUBLIC REPORT. I urge any one reading this german reporters story to identify him by name as well as the name of the German news company he reports for, log this information, and prepare to forward it to Sen Landrieu.Thank you..**HUMPHREY**

What Really Happened | September 5 2005

White House officials do not deny that they craft elaborate events to showcase Bush, but they maintain that these events are designed to accurately dramatize his policies and to convey qualities about him that are real. [ Washington Post ]

Three tons of food ready for delivery by air to refugees in St. Bernard Parish and on Algiers Point sat on the Crescent City Connection bridge Friday afternoon as air traffic was halted because of President Bush's visit to New Orleans, officials said. [ NOLA ]

There was a striking discrepancy between the CNN International report on the Bush visit to the New Orleans disaster zone, yesterday, and reports of the same event by German TV. ZDF News reported that the president's visit was a completely staged event. Their crew witnessed how the open air food distribution point Bush visited in front of the cameras was torn down immediately after the president and the herd of 'news people' had left and that others which were allegedly being set up were abandoned at the same time. The people in the area were once again left to fend for themselves, said ZDF. [War And Piece]

A live report from Biloxi:
"On the last state of things here's Christine Adelhardt live from Biloxi"

"2 minutes ago the President drove past in his convoy. But what has happened in Biloxi all day long is truly unbelievable. Suddenly recovery units appeared, suddenly bulldozers were there, those hadn't been seen here all the days before, and this in an area, in which it really wouldn't be necessary to do a big clean up, because far and wide nobody lives here anymore, the people are more inland in the city. The President travels with a press baggage [big crew]. This press baggage got very beautiful pictures which are supposed to say, that the President was here and help is on the way, too. The extent of the natural disaster shocked me, but the extent of the staging is shocking me at least the same way. With that back to Hamburg." [Daily Kos]

“But perhaps the greatest disappointment stands at the breached 17th Street levee. Touring this critical site yesterday with the President, I saw what I believed to be a real and significant effort to get a handle on a major cause of this catastrophe. Flying over this critical spot again this morning, less than 24 hours later, it became apparent that yesterday we witnessed a hastily prepared stage set for a Presidential photo opportunity; and the desperately needed resources we saw were this morning reduced to a single, lonely piece of equipment. The good and decent people of southeast Louisiana and the Gulf Coast -- black and white, rich and poor, young and old -- deserve far better from their national government" - LA Senator Mary Landrieu []

National Guard not allowing aid into the city

Get Your Act On! (Jeffrey and Andrea) are currently in Waco, TX. We are organizing a relief effort to bring much needed supplies directly into the City of New Orleans as almost NOTHING is getting in via 'official' channels (we have spoken to people still in the city).

Our house is still standing and should be relatively free of flood waters by now, so it will be used as a base for relief efforts as we are just 6 blocks from the lower 9th ward, one of the hardest hit neighborhoods. We will be purchasing a van or getting a large UHaul, filling it with supplies and driving it back to New Orleans.

If you can donate to our relief effort, please do so via this paypal link. If you do not wish to donate money directly, if you would like to purchase supplies that we can pick up (ie, from Lowes, Home Depot, Walmart), that would be great. A lot more info about our effort will be posted here by tonight as we get more details together. We can be reached via call at 254.640.8441 (Andrea) or 254.640.8442 (Jeffrey)

7:15PM Thurs Sept. 1 Update: It looks like the most economical thing to do is purchase a large van - we should be able to do this for $1000-$2000. If anyone has connections to people in the position to make a good sized donation, please ask them if they can help with this. Thanks!

9:30PM Thurs Sept 1. Update: Please help spread this message:

There are supplies sitting in Baton Rouge for the folks in New Orleans, but the National Guard has the city surrounded and is not letting anyone in or out. They are turning away people with s[QUOTE]upplies, claiming it is too dangerous. If we have planes that can drop bombs on people in Iraq, certianly we can air drop supplies into the city. Our goverment is KILLING the people of New Orleans. This is the message I am now sending to all major media sources, national and worldwide, as well as posting to email lists, blogs, etc. The story is getting out that the people there are not getting supplies, but the truth of WHY is not. Please help spread the word, we must get this story out. Please so not let any more of my friends die.

I can be reached at 254.640.8441 - feel free to call me or give my number to any media that needs a contact person to talk to.

Here is my message:

I am a resident of the Bywater in New Orleans (9th Ward). I am one of the lucky ones that was able to evacuate before the storm.

I have recently managed to speak to some friends stranded in New Orleans. They are starving and dehydrating and there is no news of when they will be receiving food and water. I have spoken to relief efforts and understand that there are plenty of supplies waiting for these people, BUT THEY ARE NOT BEING ALLOWED INTO THE CITY.

The National Guard has the city surrounded and is not letting anyone in or out, except the buses being evacuated. The excuse that they can not bring supplies into New Orleans because of the looting and gun fire is not a valid excuse - if they are too afraid to enter the streets of New Orleans, they need to be air dropping supplies into the city. If the United States is capable of sending planes that can withstand enemy fire to drop bombs in Iraq, certainly they are capable of air dropping supplies into a city where the worst of the gunfire they could encouter would be from semi-automatics.

Our government is killing the people of New Orleans. By witholding supplies, they are ensuring more deaths, and I hold them complicit.

Please bring this matter to the attention of the people of the United States. They need to know that New Orleans is deliberatly being denied food and water. Perhaps if the people there had food and water, they might not be shooting off guns.

Please feel free to call me for further information or with any questions. I appreciate your attention to this most serious matter.

I fear for my friends.


Andrea Garland
Get Your Act On! (

On another note, Jeffrey and I are in the process of getting a large vehicle and loading it up with donated supplies needed for longer term cleanup efforts (generators, chain saws, solar cooking equipment, etc.). Some basic info and a paypal link is at Get Your Act On!( and more detailed info will be posted later. Please help spread the word about this, as well. We live 6 blocks from one of the hardest hit areas in New Orleans, so we intend to bring these necessary tools to our neighbors.

Also heard that part of the reason our house flooded is they dynamited part of the levee after the first section broke - they did this to prevent Uptown (the rich 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.

Like the U.S. Constitution I hope the PATRIOT Act contains a section that allows the people to protect themselves and take action from this Terrorist Administration.

Okay, I'm being facetious.

But this Destructive Administration does not know how to save lives they know and practice the destruction of life.

In lieu of outright revolution I believe our best hopes to remove these Criminals from our White House is to progress the process of H.Res. 375 introduced by Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA-9). H.Res 375 requires the Criminals of this Administration to supply communications between the U.S. and U.K. governments on INTELLIGENCE planning leading up to the war/occupation of Iraq.

People, brothers and sisters, if you have not already done so, contact your legislators and demand that they support Ms. Lee in her request to get to the root of the lies that were forced fed to Congress and We the People.

Our Country, We the People, the World cannot continue with the leadership abuses
used by the Criminals in this Administration and OUR WHITE HOUSE.


Gregory S. Robles

The disaster in New Orleans after hurricane Katrina, is the worst disaster in our nation's history. It represents a deliberate cold blooded, orchestrated action by the Feds, to terrorize the city of New Orleans by witholding critical funds for levee repair before the storm and urgent relief after the hurricane. FEMA ran the city under a prior agreement underwhich all city departments had been federalized. This makes the deliberate witholding of federal aid and denial of outside assistance, mass murder of American citizens! Do not believe for one minute the Bush spin of incompetence on the part of local, state, or federal officials. Fema is still denying the free flow of aid into New Orleans. The news reports are lies. This was deliberate and intentional and reveals the true face of the Federal government under this Administration. The images of civil unrest were engineered by the Fed's intentional witholding of aid. People were forced into total desperation, by this cold blooded act. This was to setup a classic calvary rescue of the city, by federalized national guards and regular army. This is powerful preparation for a military dictatorship! Those who refuse to believe the government was behind 9/11, need to think again. Your disbelief and denial about 9/11 has enabled them to perpetrate this latest atrocity. Our federal government is run by fascists and psychopaths. We need to be wide awake and savvy not blindly obedient, or we'll all be soon under a tyranny of monstrous oppression. Today it's New Orleans, tomorrow it's your town. This must not be allowed to be swept under the rug, we must hold Bush accountable, we must hold congress accountable. Like 9/11, this is another attack in the covert war against America's people, all of her people.

9/11 was intended to institute the notorius Patriot Acts and the bogus "War on Terror". New Orleans also our biggest port, seems to have been about overcoming resistance to using regular army troops on U.S. soil. This is a breach of the Posse Comitatus Act. Bush is guilty of a serious breach of Constitutional checks and balances. This is just the latest in a litanny of Bush transgressions. Both Bush and Congress have done considerable damage to our constitution and way of life! This sets an ominous precident that all citizens should work to resist in no uncertain terms. Another apparent goal of this action was an artificial rise in the price of oil which will bring undo hardship on most Americans.

It's telling that this was engineered so that they could deploy the regular army's latest micro-wave crowd control weapons. Fresh from field testing in Iraq, to be deployed against terrorised citizens whom the army is calling "insurgents"! Notice the brainwashing of our soldiers! This shows how your support for illegal war will lead to your own enslavement. This is essentially a real-life inactment of the recent movie "Oil Storm". Americans must be aware that the direction of the federal government is toward an Orwellian global state. Our constitution is hanging by a thread as long as we blindly follow fascists like Bush and the traitors in congress. Americans are in serious trouble, we are caught at a time when many of us are totally ignorant of the horrendous consequences of our ignorance, disunity, and inaction. One day, in the not so distant future, apathetic and foolish Americans, will be shocked into reality by the ferocity and bloodlust of a completely unleashed Federal beast.

You all better go back up and reread gerald's words. What he is saying may be more accurate than imagined.**HUMPHREY**

This is no joke! Listen for yourself:
