I’ll admit, I was a little shocked at the title too. But this isn’t from some two bit ranting lunatic on local access news, this was an article written by G. Edward Griffin. His most famous piece of work is his book The Creature from Jekyll Island, which blew the cover off the hidden secrecy behind the corrupt Federal Reserve formed in 1913.
Griffin’s main point is that FEMA and Homeland security were not in fact designed to protect the citizens! From the article:
The primary job of the military, FEMA, and Homeland Security is not to protect the American people in times of emergency but to protect the government in times of emergency and keep it functioning. Their primary assignment is, not to rescue people, but to control them. Their directive is to relocate families and businesses, confiscate property, commandeer goods, direct labor and services, and establish martial law. The reason FEMA and Homeland security failed to carry out an effective rescue operation is that this was not their primary mission, and the reason they blocked others from doing so is that any operations not controlled by the central authority are contrary to their directives. Their objective was to bring the entire area under the control of the federal government – and this they succeeded in doing very well. They did not fail in New Orleans. They were a huge success. Once this simple fact is understood, everything that happened in the wake of Katrina becomes understandable and logical.
Pretty heavy shit if you ask me. But it would certainly explain all of FEMA’s apparent attempts at foiling rescue efforts. His article lists all the mainstream articles showing how FEMA deliberately blocked aid efforts.
It’s hard to dismiss his arguments, because there seems to be no evidence to the contrary. Even their about us section doesn’t really make it clear that they are meant to save lives versus political damage control.
